Southern Institute of Technology
students probably got more than
they bargained for when they signed
up for screenwriting this year. The
students are lucky enough to be in a
class taught by Two Little Boys
director and author Robert and
Duncan Sarkies. They'll be teaching
the class for the next six weeks.
BABY ESCORTED BY
MEN IN BLUE
Fri, March 8
A police escort to the hospital
probably wasn't in the birthing plan
for one Invercargill woman. Police
were waved down on Tramway Rd
after a woman had made it to a van
to get to hospital when she went
into labour, but had not got any
further before the baby was born.
Police escorted the woman and child
to the hospital and said while it was
common for police to escort women
in labour, it was not very common to
escort a woman who had just given

Southland District Council Mayor
Frana Cardno might think twice
before eating a banana in a cafe
again any time soon.
The self-confessed banana lover
stopped in a Milton cafe last week to
have a coffee with a councillor, but
instead of opting for a piece of cake
or a muffin with her coffee, she
retrieved a banana from her bag,
despite the signs in the cafe saying
people could not bring in their own
food. The cafe owner was rather
unhappy with Mrs Cardno, going to
The Times to express her
Mon, March 11
You would think a broken tibia
would be a good enough excuse to
call it quits on a marathon, but not
for Di Howarth though, she ran nine
hours and 42 kilometres on a broken
ankle, because she did not think it
was broken. It is fair to say, she is
one tough woman and may be an
inspiration for others to try
marathons. If she can do it with a
broken leg, anyone can right?
Tues, March 12
It looks like it is time for Southland
to rally around and give up some
time to help one of our most vital
organisations. St John is in
desperate need of volunteers. The
Bluff station is running without half
the required number of staff and
Otautau and Riverton don't look
much better. It's time for that
Southland spirit to shine through
and for us to lend a hand.

The pilot of a light aircraft that
crashed near Te Anau should
probably buy a lotto ticket
considering the luck that was on his
side. The pilot walked away from a
crash that looked as though it could
have resulted rather differently. The
reason for the crash is unknown.

Garden sprinklers banned
The Invercargill City Council has imposed
watering restrictions from yesterday as water
levels in the Oreti River continue to fall.
Invercargill and Bluff residents were prohibited
from using garden sprinklers and could use only a
hand-held hose until further notice, water
manager Alister Murray said. Hand-held hosing
would reduce water use, as sprinklers were often
left running for long periods when gardeners
forgot about them or were distracted.
