For thousands of New Zealanders, hearing im- pairment is the reality of their daily lives. Hearing impairment is invisible and causes lost opportunities, daily struggles, frustration, anger, isolation, relation- ship breakdowns, bully- ing and despair. One in 10 New Zea- landers -- 450,000 -- has a hearing loss. Of those, 290,000 have a hearing loss that is a disability. It costs the economy around $1.8 billion a year in lost production. The hearing impaired are a huge and diverse group, but one that is generally below the radar, National Foun- dation for the Deaf chief executive Louise Carroll says. We struggle in back- ground noise such as social functions. We struggle to hear in shops, on public transport, and in situations where we can t clearly see the face of the person talking. In the end our whole life becomes an exhausting struggle of trying to com- municate and integrate. Mrs Carroll says Hear- ing Week aims to make those who live with hear- ing loss realise there are a number of organis- ations that can help. It is also a golden opportunity for all Kiwis to consider how they communicate with each other by gaining our attention, speaking a little slower, facing us, keeping your lips clear and please, do not shout as it is makes hearing even more difficult. Water journeys safer Boat blessing: Kaumatua Sid Kingi blesses the Matuku while DOC Bay of Islands area manager Rolien Elliot and biodiversity assets manager Adrian Walker look on. Getting around the Bay of Islands should be a little easier and safer for DOC rangers, thanks to a new boat. The Conservation Depart- ment has replaced its ageing boat Circa with a new boat called Matuku (reef heron). The boat was designed by Alan Walker of Paihia and built by Perrin Clark of Northern Spars and Rigging in Opua. Project manager Katrina Upperton says Matuku has a good, working deck, handles well under different sea con- ditions and offers passengers a relatively dry ride. Custom-built features, including a bow staple, will make rock landings safer and easier. DOC area manager Rolien Elliot says boats are essential for marine and island conser- vation management work in the Bay. Kaumatua Sid Kingi blessed the boat when the department launched it at Doves Bay near Kerikeri earlier this month. Trust holds on to Top Energy shares for five years Ownership of Top Energy will remain in the hands of the Top Energy Consumer Trust. Trustees have decided to con- tinue holding shares in the lines company for another five years after inviting public sub- missions during an ownership review. More than 91 percent of 864 submitters who responded to the review started in October supported trust ownership. Fewer than one in 10 of submitters supported issuing shares to power consumers, with or without the ability to sell them. The trust also considered reports from Top Energy Group directors and trustees before making its decision. Trust chairman Robin Shep- herd says the ownership review is the third the trust has undertaken. Trust ownership of Top Energy has been supported by the majority of submitters in each review, he says. We re thrilled that many submissions included support- ive comments . The trust has held shares on behalf of consumers connected to Top Energy s lines network since 1992. Its deed requires trustees to ask consumers every five years if they want the trust to continue holding shares.
