Effects of the Budget Otaki MP Nathan Guy has welcomed changes announced in last Thursday s Budget while his Labour opposite describes the budget as offering nothing of substance to the people of the Otaki electorate . Mr Guy said the Budget was positive news for the region s schools and health services, with $27 million going to the MidCen- tral District Health Board and $1.4 billion to be spent on edu- cation over the next four years, including an increase of about 3 per cent in operational funding for schools. Levin gets five new police officers this year. Mr Guy said the economy would pick up strongly, with 170,000 new jobs expected around New Zealand during the next four years. We can expect to see many of these jobs in Kapiti and Horowhenua, he said, giving the proposed expressway and rollout of rural broadband as examples. Labour candidate Peter Foster said the Government had no plan for jobs and no plan to grow the economy. While the estimates of 170,000 extra jobs are nice, they are purely speculative wishful thinking. Getting both govern- ment and private debt sorted is critical and to do that requires more than just balancing the books by slashing public services and selling state assets; it requires a plan for jobs and a plan for growth. He said the Budget was par- ticularly hard on people in the Otaki electorate, where median incomes are lower than average, and these are the people who fared worse in the unjust tax cuts of last year . . . Model dog: Tokomaru border collie Brodie poses for the camera in one of the shots which had him selected for the Tux Dog top-10. A good dog's life By KARA LOK An energetic border collie from Tokomaru is in the running to be New Zealand s next Tux Dog. Brodie was selected as one of the top-10 finalists for the company s advertising campaign in early April and recently completed a film aud- ition for a television commercial. Owner Kathryn Beer said the four- year-old was a very happy, active and outgoing dog who loves to chase balls, swim in the Tokomaru River, run and also compete in dog obedi- ence . Mrs Beer, who started dog obedi- ence with Brodie when he was seven weeks old, submitted his photo in April. I entered Brodie because I read that the judges were looking for a dog who had that certain sort of something and I think that Brodie has that in spades. His tricks include jumping over obstacles and giving high fives. Making the top-10 earned Brodie a year s worth of dog biscuits and if he wins Mrs Beer will get $1000. Pictures of the finalists are on the Purina Tux website where people can vote for their favourite dog. Voting closes on Sunday and the finalist will be announced on June 13.
