Diagnosed with stage four bowel cancer despite almost no symptoms

Massey resident Tegan Hollier, 26, felt healthy until a pain under her left rib prompted her to visit her doctor.
So when the 26-year-old was diagnosed with stage four bowel cancer, it came as a bit of a shock, she said. Hollier's doctor initially believed she was suffering from a kidney infection, but after passing blood in her stools, she returned for further tests, where she was given the diagnosis of stage four bowel cancer "teetering" on curable.
Despite the diagnoses, Hollier said she's feeling positive. She urges others – especially young people – to be more vigilant with their heath and more accepting of the need to visit a doctor.
"Those little niggles you have, you can't just ignore them. I could have possibly dropped dead and not known why. I could have ended up at the point where they can't help me."

Dangerous loading tactics from trucks on our roads🚛

Fiona from Henderson

Far too often, in fact it's now a daily occurrence; there are trucks on our roads with incorrectly secured loads or worse, loads that aren't even secured.

Far too often, in fact it's now a daily occurrence; there are trucks on our roads with incorrectly secured loads or worse, loads that aren't even secured.
The latest incident I have witnessed was at the mini construction site at the corner of Lincoln, Swanson and Great North road intersection - where Henderson Lock Services used to be.
A truck, fully loaded with rubble, came out, turned right onto Great North Road and then straight down Lincoln Road. The top layer which was well over the legal limit, was flying off in all directions and all of us had to hold back as to not be showered with any stones etc ...
The driver was totally oblivious and she kept on driving even though people were trying to flag her down.
I couldn't see the company name on the truck as a van in front of me blocked my view, but it was raining sand, stones and pebbles.
I honestly thought that all loads had to be covered in case of dangerous items i.e. stones, rubbish, wood etc ... flying off and causing accidents (or worse, a death) on the roads behind them.
Apparently one of the NZTA rules for loose bulks loads is, "Loose bulk loads being transported in a vehicle without a tarpaulin fitted should at no time reach higher than 100mm below any side of the vehicle"
NZTA goes onto to say, "Loose bulk loads should be tarped, netted or sheeted as appropriate whenever there is a risk of load shedding due to wind action or movement"
This also applies to the average Joe Blow on his/her way to the rubbish tips with their dangerously overloaded and unsecured trailers.
The amount of garden rubbish we come across on the roads or even MDF or rubbish bags (the list goes on) beggars belief.
Cover your truck & trailer and load folks.
Keep us safe and alive.

Bee hive for removal

Melania from Ranui

Hi everyone,
I need to get a bee hive removed from a roof cavity. I prefer to get a beekeeper who might be interested in taking it rather than a pest control getting rid of it.
It is a very active hive and I haven't seen the size of it yet.
Please contact me if interested.
