With young children being responsible for taking part in ram raids, burglaries, car conversions and other anti-social behaviour, what are the parents doing? Do they not know where their offspring are at night? If they do not know, they should, and as such should be held responsible for the actions of their children and consequently prosecuted for their child’s actions We are...
It is worth noting, with local body elections looming, that the only reason that the Howick War Memorial Hall lies idle and unused is the inability of the local board and Auckland Council to decide on a principal tenant. This building, a valuable community asset which could be used by countless organisations on both long and short-term rentals, obviously needs...
There are still quite a few folks out there who don’t believe that greenhouse gasses such as CO2 and methane present a serious problem for our planet. The difficulty in understanding greenhouse gas danger is the time involved. In the distant past, Earth has been far hotter than it is now but that was 50 million years ago. Humans only started...
Re: CO2 Greenhouse gas (Ryan Price, Times, July 27). Ryan Price disputes the importance of CO2 in regulating Earth’s temperature. For readers who want to know the truth, based on the science endorsed by 150,000 scientists publishing in the field and every scientific institute on the planet, two videos: • Richard Alley – 4.6 Billion Years of Earth’s Climate History: The...
God created all life. Covid and Cancer are life forms designed by Ian George’s God (Times, August 3), to kill humans. Science (vaccinations, masks…in fact, the whole medical facility) circumvents God’s will. When God wants Ian to have a headache, Ian takes paracetamol to prevent God’s will. When God has decided Ian should die, Ian will probably take Atorvastatin or other...
It is clear the Howick War Memorial Information Centre is not going to reopen in its previous format. Held within that facility is a big range of material that relates to Howick and its environs, such as pamphlets on the walkways of Howick, the Historical Walk of Howick, Mangemangeroa Walkway, parks and beaches, bus and ferry timetables, local businesses to...
Re: Ian George’s letter “God and Science”, (Times, August 3). Ian George, your letter claims, “God is in charge, always has been, always will be. Aren’t you grateful he is?” Science and God bear no relationship to each other. Science can be proven with facts and evidence, as with the James Webb Space Telescope that will be able to see back in...
Local skater Jessica Ready, 12, has won the women's section at the New Zealand X Air competition. Ready, a gymnast from the age of two, started skating in 2019. Her parents noticed her interest in skating and purchased her a skateboard for her ninth birthday. "Her dad skates so she started out learning from him," Jessica's mother Diana told the Times last...
Questions are being asked about why the Howick Local Board has so far been unable to appoint an organisation to manage an underused community building. Howick Village Association (HVA) chairman Ken Scott says he’s disappointed and confused as to why a majority of the board’s members have repeatedly rejected recommendations to approve the HVA as manager of the Howick War...
