January issue full of local news and views


We start the new year with our fifth issue of Ōtaki Today, full of news and views that matter to this town.

Our lead story is about how Aria Epiha-Edwards was injured, apparently by a stingray, at the southern end of Ōtaki Beach. We also explain why there were sudden road works on the highway north of the town (heat and traffic), and look at the vexing question of how the two DHBs – with Ōtaki on the border – say they are in a "partnership" for Ōtaki health services. Sadly, we don't know what this partnership means, but we'll keep asking the question. 

We also have our regular line-up of comment from our local politicians, Fraser Carson sings the praises of small towns, Graham Rikihana tells why he loves Ōtaki, garden expert Kath Irvine tells us to keep an eye on autumn, and we've thrown in a few new columnists for good measure – Daniel Duxfield on fitness and Ken Geenty with his farming focus. Plus we have a photographic round-up of summer events in the outer regions as Waikawa Beach and Te Horo Beach residents enjoyed locally organised community days out.

There's clearly lots going on here.
