Stay away from indoor farming Thanks for the great service Dog owners not the only polluters Two options to help road users Potential threats need to be checked Reprisals no reason to stay out of fight Time to tinker with national super age Creative ways to save water Councils need to cut their cloth It's not the roads, it's too many cars

OPINION: One could be forgiven for noticing the similarities between the New Zealand Army and their recent reckless live firing exercises in tinder-dry areas, and those of a certain Captain Mainwaring and his troupe of Home Guard volunteers that featured in the well- known TV comedy series, Dad's Army, set in World War II England. Certainly the circumstances of this ineptitude would have made a hilarious episode in that series, despite being alarming in today's real-life conditions.
