Kumara Residents Trust Announced Supreme Winner

Kumara Residents Trust has won the Supreme Award at the 2014 Trustpower Westland Community Awards.

The Awards were announced and presented tonight (Monday 11 August) at a function at the Beachfront Hotel Hokitika.

For winning the Supreme Award, the Kumara Residents Trust received a framed certificate, a trophy and $1,500 prize money. The Kumara Residents Trust now has the opportunity to represent the district at the 2014 Trustpower National Community Awards, which are being held in Wellington in March 2015.

In total, Trustpower has given away over $5,000 to various community groups through tonight’s Awards.

Trustpower Community Relations Representative Emily Beaton says that the Kumara Residents Trust “are the perfect example of a small town doing big things. They show true community spirit and are turning their small village into a destination town, not just for the aesthetically pleasing projects that this group are initiating, but also for the small town charm that these community minded volunteers are creating through their shared passion.

We are really looking forward to having two representatives from this group along to the National awards to share their story and promote their district,” says Miss Beaton.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
