Falling Dollar – Urewera Road – Defence Spending – Stars Together

- FALLING DOLLAR: The news is bad for consumers, motorists and overseas travellers yesterday as the dollar tumbled to a 15-year low of US43.35 cents, putting fresh pressure on inflation, already swollen by higher petrol prices.

- UREWERA ROAD: The Government is having second thoughts about spending $260,000 upgrading a road used only about 500 people a year in the Urewera National Park, which leads to land owned by Maori activist Tame Iti.

- DEFENCE SPENDING: Australia criticised the New Zealand defence budget decisions announced yesterday, which signalled the possible end of the military maritime patrol capability.

- STARS TOGETHER: Hollywood stars Russell Crowe and Meg Ryan are still an Item, despite recent reports Ryan had left New Zealand born Crowe and returned to her husband Dennis Quaid.

Inside Political Headlines:
- Treaty clause may be clarified – Clark;
- No assurance on Fire Service levy;
- PM backs withdrawal;
- No reliable test for ‘stoned’ drivers;
- Wilson rejects opinion poll ban;
- Toxic land to be bought;
- Easy shots way off target – Jane Clifton’s about the house.

Editorial: A sweet deal full of harm.
