The now infamous Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman movie, The Bucket List, has become responsible for senior citizens all over the world behaving irresponsibly. No longer content with quiet sedate lives playing backgammon and drinking tea, rest home residents are spicing up their days fulfilling their long-held dreams. General manager of the Kerikeri Retirement Village Betty Petrie supports her residents desire to live it up. It s not how many years are left in the life, but how much life is left in the years that s important, she said. Armed with this philosophy and inspired by the movie, Betty and her team of caregivers recently held a Bucket List competition for all the residents of the village. Some of the things on people s wish list were fairly simple to arrange and others, though not outrageously diffi- cult, relied on the generosity of the local community to fulfil. Joyce Paton, for example, had always wanted to go on a helicopter flight and Salt Air in Paihia were more than happy to make Joyce s dream come true. Eighty-year-old Joyce, who holds her skipper s ticket and is very fam- iliar with the Bay of Islands, was thrilled with the scenic flight around the Bay. I couldn t get over how dif- ferent everything looked from the air, she said. Joyce was accompanied by her 90-year-old friend Thelma who was visiting from Australia. Both were impressed with pilot Sarah. Girls can do anything these days, they said. Inspectors catch 33 paua poachers on west coast Fishery Officers have apprehended 33 people allegedly offending in the paua fishery along Northland s west coast. Northland field operations man- ager Darren Edwards says the fishers were spotted between Kawerua and Ahipara during three days of targeted patrols coinciding with the moon tides. All were found to be in possession of undersized paua, with the worst offending seeing one diver with 42 paua, more than four times the daily allowable limit, Mr Edwards says. The daily bag limit for paua is 10 per diver per day with a minimum size of 125 millimetres. Penalties for breaching these rules range from infringement notices to prosecutions with fines of between $250 and $250,000 and the possible seizure of dive gear, boats and vehicles. Fisheries and Aquaculture Minis- ter and Whangarei MP Phil Heatley said he was very concerned to hear reports of fisheries theft coming in from around the country before the high season even gets into swing. It s sickening to learn this sort of thing s still going on, especially in my own backyard, Mr Heatley says. I know fishery officers everywhere are gearing up to head off the threat to our fish stocks and I support them every step of the way. Darren Edwards says paua stocks on Northland s west coast are finite, but local people keep applying the pressure by taking undersized and excess amounts and showing no remorse for their actions. With daylight saving and the warmer weather now upon us, fishery officers will be actively patrolling our west coast to make sure divers are reminded that if they offend in this fishery they will be caught. The public is encouraged to report any suspicious activity to 0800 4 POACHER (0800-476-224). New gardens on safari Garden safari: October 29 and 30.
