The year past

is in hot demand and the
box is cluttered with ads
to the tune of sleigh
bells. Yes, it is Christ-
mas and amid the hype,
high blood pressure and
maxed-out credit cards
it is a time for reflection.
It's a time of year where the lucky ones get to stop, take
a breath, and consider their achievements. So, in the
tradition of Christmas I thought I would take this oppor-
tunity to reflect with you on what your support has
enabled Horizons to achieve in 2011. We couldn't quite fit
it all into 12 days of Christmas, but here goes the past 12
months of Horizons:
1. One-hundred-and-twelve kilometres of our precious
waterways permanently fenced off.
2. Four million trees now planted to keep the soil on the
3. Nineteen thousand new native plants along our
rivers and streams.
4. Possums now controlled in half a million hectares of
5. Forty-five important wetlands now protected.
6. A total of 518 resource consents granted.
7. A total of 2633 resource consents monitored.
8. A 20 per cent increase in our passenger transport
9. Eighteen thousand calls handled over the Christ-
church earthquake missing persons hotline.
10. Regional and national awards for Horizons' cus-
tomer services team.
11. A 500-year flood protection for 75 per cent of Palm-
12. Manawatu Clean Up River Action Plan launched.
As the sun sets on 2011 there is much Horizons and its
community can reflect on that is positive. Negative media
makes the headlines and sells papers and that will never
What gets me up every day and fills me with excite-
ment about 2012 is the exceptional work of Horizons staff
and the very real and meaningful achievements they
make on your behalf every day. You don't always read
about them but they are happening.
Here's wishing you a safe and happy festive season
with plenty more to celebrate in the New Year.
Go healthier with snacks
By WI ORMSBY
Goodness in a tin: Will you take a Wi bit of advice and replace the
chippies in your work snack box with sardines next year?
There's a potential health hazard lurking
in the hallways and dark corners of many
workplaces. This hazard is cleverly dis-
guised and people are falling for its bright
appealing appearance. These overlooked
traps are vending machines and snack
They can look harmless enough and
offer a convenient snack right at our
finger tips without travel or delay. How
many of us regularly fall victim to the
innocent looking but high calorie snacks
that dangle in front of us each day?
These snacks can contain high amounts
of fat, sugar and salt. Foods such as these
contribute to the increasing rate of obe-
sity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure
and cardio vascular disease. Vending
machine food can also contain high
amounts of preservatives to maintain
their shelf life. With one in three New
Zealanders overweight and one in four
obese, making sound nutritional choices is
important to attaining better health.
If you're regularly tripped up by these
traps, ascertain whether your organis-
ation really needs a vending machine or
snack box. Often people only use it
because it's there and if it was gone
nobody would miss it. If they did want a
snack they would
have to walk and get
and snack boxes offer
healthy food options,
this is usually at a
minimum. The com-
pany which owns the
machine or box is

Tinned fish --
salmon, tuna and
even sardines provide a good source of
protein which helps to fill you up. Fish
contains omega-3 fatty acids which
increases brain function and decreases
heart disease and high cholesterol.
Tinned chicken -- chicken is high in pro-
tein to build muscle and help fill you up.
Fruit and vegetables -- fruit and
vegetables are the perfect snack and con-
tain vitamins and minerals essential to
proper body function. Unfortunately they
do not store well in their fresh state but
luckily many come in a can.
Consider leaving your wallet at home.
Avoid two-minute noodles or similar
products. While these may seem healthy
they are high in fat and the flavourings
are high in sodium.
