Photo: DENISE PIPER By DENISE PIPER A service club is getting on to the worldwide web with help from the younger generation. When Zonta Club of Whangarei needed help setting up a website, it decided to turn to the students at Kamo High School. It ran a competition for year 11 and 12 students to design the best website for the service club, presi- dent Patricia Crossett says. We were met with great enthusiasm, the students tackled the task well, she says. Caleb Makiri was chosen as the winner of the competition and his winning design will be up and run- ning soon. Prime Minister John Key helped present the award to Caleb as part of his visit to Kamo High School, where he gave out awards and answered questions. Pat says the club was very impressed with the number and quality of website designs and it was hard to choose a winner. It was a wonderful exercise for the Zonta club. We re a service club, we are very much support our local community and the logical choice for us was to come to a Whangarei school, she says.

Plea for Peaches Tut tut: My, some people can be forgetful but thanks to the SPCA I was found. Some things are hard to remember, like how many treats you ve had, but if your mem- ory is so bad you take adogforawalkand forget to take it home, professional help is needed. I m Peaches and someone tied me up in a public place and for- got me. Luckily the SPCA rescued me, a female, 4-month-old labrador border collie staffi cross. They ve found I m a loving little darl- ing who wants to please, gets on well with other dogs and would fit in well as part of an active fam- ily who would never abandon one another. Whangarei SPCA is located on Kioreroa Rd ph 438 9161, whangareispca.co.nz. Still time to bag some game birds Hunters who want to get the most from their game bird hunting licence still have a couple of weeks left to hunt pheasant and quail. Upland game birds can be hunted until August 26, along with pukeko in some regions. In Northland, pheas- ant, quail and pukeko can be hunted until then -- in the Far North, area A closed on August 5. Northland Fish & Game officer Nathan Burkepile says pheasant hunting is going strong with hunters reporting seeing lots of the birds throughout the region. There are also large numbers of brown quail in the open pockets of forestry blocks and farm- lands. He says California quail, with their distinc- tive call, are also abun- dant but the coveys are getting smaller as males set up their territories. Pukeko are abundant and hunters are encour- aged to speak to farmers in areas with large num- bers. Go to fishandgame. org.nz for more information.
