Council to arrange for
trial of bus service
Rangitikei residents will soon be
able to catch the bus to Palmerston
North and Whanganui after a
decision by Horizons Regional
Council to include the fortnightly
service in its final long-term plan.
The bus service, which operated
commercially until 2010, will travel
to Palmerston North once a month
and Whanganui once a month.
Buses will return the same day
with stops in Taihape, Mangaweka,
Ohingaiti, Hunterville, Marton,
Bulls and Sanson (Palmerston
North service only) along the way.
The decision has been welcomed
by Rangitikei Transport Issues
Steering Group member Michelle
Bisset who says the fortnightly ser-
vice will provide a much-needed link
for the Rangitikei community.
In a word, it's fabulous,'' Ms
Bisset says. It's just essential that
transport options are provided for
people in the Rangitikei district.
Getting from A to B is the sort of
thing that can be taken for granted
in the city but out here it's some-
thing we're really excited about. It's
been a long time coming and it's all
The service also received strong
support from Taihape's Older and
Bolder organisation with 10 group
members making the trip to Palm-
erston North for a submission hear-
ing in May.
It's just so exciting for older
people as so many of them don't
drive and with families working or
living in other areas it can be diffi-
cult for them to get out of town,''
Older and Bolder co-ordinator Betty
People in our group are indepen-
dent; they don't like asking for
things. This gives them the freedom
to catch up with friends and
relations but it also provides access
to basic things like knitting wool,
shoes and a good winter coat that
you just can't get here.''
Horizons chairman Bruce Gordon
says the level of support from
Rangitikei residents for the service
is s overwhelming.
We received 36 submissions to
the Long Term Plan on the Rangi-
tikei service with 34 supporting its
reinstatement,'' he says.
The message was clear that an
affordable transport option to and
from Palmerston North and
Whanganui is something Rangitikei
Our transport team is now
seeking interest from operators and
we'll look forward to having a trial
service up and running by
The continuation of this trial ser-
vice depends on its use and Ms
Bisset says now is the time for
people to turn their support into
out of date
By HARRY AND KUI LAZARUS
Pastors at New Life Revival Centre
The Bible is a spiritual book. It
deals with the physical, only so far
as the physical is a help or a hin-
drance to the spiritual development
Thus to be created in the image of
God is not to look like God but to act
like God. Be perfect as your
Heavenly Father is perfect.''
The Bible reveals the meaning of
personal life and history as God acts
creatively and with redemption at
specific moments in history.
These are decisive acts which
reveal to man that nothing about
life makes sense without God.
The Bible is therefore the outline
of life which we are to follow as we
fill in the body of the story.
The Bible blazes a trail which we
must follow if we are not to get lost.
Miss a trail marker and you multi-
ply your difficulties in getting back
on the trail. These illuminating
guideposts'' have been set out by a
They are the points in life with
which all other happenings are to be
understood. The Bible, though
ancient in origin, is never out of
date because it deals with the divine
order, which never changes.
For that matter, is man to be con-
sidered ancient and obsolete just
because mankind has been around
for such a long time?
Man is as modern as you and as
ancient as creation. Creation is as
modern as your youngest child, yet
as old as time.
The things which man fashions
with his hands pass away and
become old-fashioned, but not so the
handiwork of God. Have you ever
seen an old-fashioned sunset?
This, then, is the nature of the
Bible. It is as new as the problems
you bring to it; it is as fresh as the
sincerity of your heart; it is as per-
tinent as man is impertinent when
he thinks he can get along without
the living word of the living God.
Road closed: State Highway 1 from Taihape to
Turangi was closed last Wednesday morning at
around 4am and re-opened at 8.45am, due to snow
on the main road from the top of the deviation north
of Taihape. The Desert Road remained closed.
Traffic, mainly trucks, lined the full length of
Mataroa Rd through Hautapu St to near the Taihape
town hall. Waiouru had a good fall of up to eight
centimetres in the town. The school was closed and
Waiouru students who attend Taihape Area School
had a day off.
