Police update on lockdown

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hello Neighbours

Senior Sergeant Kris Clarke in the Waikato DCC tells us police are getting a lot of calls from people concerned that others are flouting lockdown rules.

At this stage, police are informing people and encouraging them to comply - and meeting "very little resistance", Clarke said.

Overall, the streets are much quieter than usual, she said.

Not a bad view, indeed.

Back where it belongs

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi neighbours,

It was a special day in the newsroom on Monday as Stuff's chief executive Sinead Boucher announced a management buyout of the company, of which the Waikato Times is a part, from its Australian owner Nine Entertainment.

It puts an end to NZME's increasingly desperate bid to get its clutches on Stuff. It also puts it firmly in the hands of those who want the best for it, a NZ owner who understands the business.

What's your view on the Times moving back into NZ hands?

Read more local reaction to the buyout here.
