NORTHERN OUTLOOK, AUGUST 24, 2013
It's hard to believe we're on the right side of the shortest day -- July didn't really
feel like winter, but if the past is to be relied upon, August has shown us that it's
not quite Spring!
SALLY MAC'S winter sale is the one worth waiting for -- we've had a busy
season, but there's still plenty to choose from in our fantastic "BUY ONE, GET
ONE FREE" winter sale. You all know the drill by now -- you get the lower priced
item free, so that's up to 50% off. You can choose from all our winter stock -- it
doesn't have to be two tops, or two skirts. Everyone loves our sale, where you
get to choose your free gear.
Jewellery, accessories, jeans and lingerie aren't included in the deal, but that
still leaves you lots of pants, leggings, skirts, merinos, jerseys, tops, shirts, and
tunics to choose from.
While you're in Sally Mac's looking at winter goodies, check out our some of our
new lines -- the I'm Gorgeous jewellery range has just arrived, and it really is
gorgeous. With Amberley's Spring Ball coming up on 31st August, you could grab
a stunning new piece of bling to jazz up your little black dress.
We also have new stock of GRLA (GEORG ROTH LA) shirts -- these beautifully
designed shirts are investment pieces -- stunning fabrics, trimmed with Liberty
prints -- the tailored shirt worn with slim jeans or pants is making a hugely
welcome comeback. It's so good to wear this classic look again -- I'm a shirt girl
from way back!!
The other new arrival which sold really well last spring and summer is China Doll
-- beautiful mesh or viscose print tops -- easy fit, easy care -- just easy! They are
just so fresh and feminine.
If you have a couple of pieces in your wardrobe that don't seem to fit in (have you
heard our ads on RadioLive about orphan clothes?!) remember that even during
the sale, we love the challenge of finding the piece that makes them work better!!
Bring them with you, and we'll give it our best shot. After all, if SALLY MAC'S is
for fashion that works, we'll help you make that happen.
So it's SALE ON -- all of August -- grab your girlfriend or your Granny, your Mum
or your best mate, your sister or your spouse, and get yourself into SALLY MAC'S
-- free parking on the Main Road, or in the car park right beside us. And for after
sale service and fantastic coffee, the Nor'wester Cafe is just across the road --
thanks Trish, Tim and the team!!
See you at the sale.

It would appear that council
doesn t like our Town Hall in
Rangiora. I know it has
deficiencies -- some of which date
to the 1967 council rebuild -- but
even so, what is their fixation
with these performing arts
groups? Only 100 people ticked off
the plans, and ten ll get you 20,
they were probably all performing
arts people who supported this
harebrained scheme. Who s
paying for all this?
Not the council -- they never had
the money in the first place. It s
the ratepayer who has to hoof the
bill, from Oxford to Waikuku and
Extension, sheer stupidity.
It s now a glorified warehouse
for Woodend Community Centre
leftovers, has had floor panels
pulled up and holes bashed in
floors or walls. And this was not
tidied up -- out walk the
engineers. The place is in a
deteriorating state, not helped by
that broken window on the
landing off High St. If I have to
vote on this, mine s No
Confidence. David, you re a good
man; these people are good people.
But there is a limit to how far I ll
go -- how far we ll go.
Stop this nonsense now for the
sake of us all.
Regarding Kay Millist s letter
(Outlook 27/2), Reed Boat Theory
finds Favour, unfortunately, Thor
Heyerdahl and his voyages gained
much publicity and traction
despite the protests and criticisms
of the professors from the Pan
Pacific Science conferences, who
were adamant that all
Polynesians came from
somewhere in the Madagascar
area -- that is, to the west. My
flora, fauna, linguistic and
archaeological discoveries support
the Pan Pacific scientists findings
and discredit Thor Heyerdahl.
Thor s publicity stunts
overshadowed the work of the Pan
Pacific scientists, muddied the
waters and made it even more
difficult to work out the location of
Hawaiiki. As a child, Maori elders
with chiselled moko taught me
their old language.
This language is still used in
South Africa today, and is only
found in South Africa and
Polynesia -- nowhere else.
For example: poi in old Maori
meant dried taro paste.
In South Africa today, at a
barbecue, your host would most
likely ask you if you would like poi
with your steak. This is only one
of very many Maori/Polynesian
words still in use in South Africa...
which proves that the South
African veldt is Hawaiiki.
Keep Kaiapoi police
I agree with councillors Neville
(Atkinson) and Roger (Blair) that
we need our local cop shop to stay
an active part of our area.
Their presence seems to keep a
lid on most of our ratbags. In fact,
I d like an extension past 5pm
please on nutcase nights -- Fridays
If one makes a call then, we re
told if there is a spare car and
officer at Rangiora, they will
check on it.
I reckon they re busy enough
locally with all the extras
crammed in here now. Reading
Rangiora s court reports and
problems make me shudder, so
I m glad to be in Kaiapoi, where
incidentally we also have very
nice and competent policewomen.
One was an active fire person as
well, until she became a mother.
Dedication to her community,
eh what?! Cut costs somewhere
else please, Superintendent
Knowles. Our station isn t even
quake-damaged. Nanna, Jos Baker
