Firefighters’ Contract Row – Government Funded Vasectomies – Urewera Controversy – Lucky Duck

- FIREFIGHTERS CONTRACT ROW: The Government has intervened in the six-year-old firefighters’ contract row, effectively telling the Fire Service Commission to settle the dispute in the union's favour.

She said it was hard to see a reason to support the plan, which is the latest in a rash of race-related embarrassments for the Government.

- LUCKY DUCK: A duck, rescued from an oil spill in Wainuiomata, is safe in the hands of an 11-year-old girl and her mother.
