It seems like an age ago when, as kids, we were reading stories about the future. These stories described life Beyond 2000. They spoke about fying cars, underwater cites and regular travel to the moon. And now, all of a sudden, here we are in the year 2011. With the advent of a new year, the questons must be asked: What kind of year do you want? How would you like to see 2011 pan out for you? It is so important that we as Northlanders consider the year ahead and begin to plan out what goals or aspiratons we would like to both set and accomplish. 2011 is not a year for apathy nor is it a year for complacency. Rather, it is a year for positve actons, actons that will bring benefcial achievements. Recently my wife and I watched the movie, The Bucket List. Its well worth the watch. In this movie, two terminally ill men set about accomplishing dreams and wishes they had stored up over tme. Perhaps its tme for us as Northlanders to dream a litle, to take the tme to consider who we are and what we possess, to map out and plan courses of acton. I encourage you all to take the tme to stop and think about the next 12 months that lie ahead. Itll take ten minutes of your tme to do this . . . but the returns may be life-changing! At the grassroots level, were an innovatve, resourceful, and creatve bunch up here lets make the most of who we are and what weve got. We all possess much potental; we are all gifed in one way or another; we all have the ability to contribute to a beter Northland. Lets dream a litle. Beter yet, dream big this year. Lets not hold back 2011s there for the taking! Next tme: Northlands roads a key part of our future success Mark B. Tan Aspiring National Party Candidate for Northland Tips on jellyfish stings As people plunge back into the sea this sum- mer, St John has first aid tips on jellyfish stings. Jellyfish stings rarely cause significant harm but they can bring severe pain that may last for more than an hour. Pain is not an indication to go to a doctor, unless it is severe and persisting for a few hours. Flush sting area with water and gently remove the tentacles if still present. Avoid excessive rubbing of the tentacles Putting vinegar on the sting won't help, but it is not harmful Put the sting area in water as hot as possible for 20 minutes. A hot shower is ideal If hot water is not available and there is significant pain, apply an ice pack Call 111 for an ambu- lance if the patient shows any of the follow- ing: Difficulty breathing; fainting; a red rash all over the body; or swell- ing of the face or mouth.

Orca encounter: Ten-year-old Tasmin Gamble snapped this photo of two orcas in a pod of 12 as they came up next to her family's boat in Houhora Harbour last week. Tasmin's mum, Lee, said the orcas were chasing stingrays along East Beach. In the photo, the orca furthest from the boat had a stingray in its mouth while another huge orca went straight under the family boat -- an awesome experience.
