Burglars welcome your invitation
Residential burglaries in
Palmerston North continue
to be a concern for police, as
are the large number of thefts from
The burglaries are spread over
the whole city, with the hospital
area ceasing to be the main area
Police are reiterating the old
message that home owners need to
be more vigilant to stop themselves
becoming victims and this applies
equally to car owners, who con-
tinue to leave valuable items in full
view in vehicles.
A recent story from Britain
shows this is not a problem
isolated to Palmerston North or
A teenage burglar was asked as
part of his punishment to write a
letter of apology to his victims.
This is what he had to say:
To be honest I'm not bothered or
sorry about the fact that I burgled
Basically it was your fault any-
Firstly, you didn't draw your
curtains and secondly you're thick
enough to leave your downstairs
Police consistently come across
this type of situation as they inves-
tigate residential burglaries and
theft of items from vehicles.
The message is clear.
If you do not want to go through
the hassle of having your privacy
violated by a burglary or go
through the tiresome job of cancel-
ling credit cards and the like, then
take more care with ensuring the
security of your house and making
sure valuables are not left in full
view in your vehicle.
Neighbourhood Support has
been pushing this line for years but
people still wonder why they are
unlucky enough to be a victim.
The Junior Neighbourhood Sup-
port awards culminate in the Big
Day Out for two children each from
Roslyn, Riverdale, West End and
Tiritea schools on Tuesday.
Children who have worked hard
in the Junior Neighbourhood Sup-
port programme over the past
three months will be rewarded by
being picked up from their schools
by police officers on Harley
Davidson motorcycles, taken to the
airport and given a ride over the
city in the Palmerston North res-
Following this they will have
morning tea with mayor Jono
Naylor, then off to Massey Univer-
sity for some abseiling organised
by PNCC emergency management
Then off to Breakers Cafe for
lunch, and a swim at the Lido.
Congratulations to those children.
A final request for people to
make sure their Neighbourhood
Support group is updated before

oratorio is one of the best-known
and most frequently performed
choral works and is always eagerly
looked forward to.

Vocally, the best performances of
the night came from the male
soloists Nigel Tongs (tenor) and
Joe Christensen (bass).
Both exhibited a strong, even
tone, big sound and attention to
interpretation which led to a confi-
dent and powerful delivery.
Given the nature of their roles
they had ample opportunity to
demonstrate their vocal skills and
dexterity. From the opening tenor
recitative to the final bass air they
commanded the stage.

the back, the lighter tones of

Later, you started to blossom,
Some were as pink as girls'
Some were as red as burny
Extending to the entire lake.
I saw you hold glittering
Each one refracted your grace-
You were dancing in wind-

I appreciated your lofty charac-

You were both feminine and strong

Hang Zhang's poem Lotus was
second in the young adult section of
the Brownyn Tate Memorial Short
Story and Poetry Competition, run by
the Manawatu Women Writers'
Association. Her poem Sailing boat
and coast was commended.
