The 27 new recruits will work as officers and inmate employment instructors. Prison services general manager Harry Hawthorn says staff members will get on-the-job training support- ing prisoners to use their time constructively, under- taking rehabilitation programmes, receiving an education, and gaining work skills. The course instils a sense of professionalism and integrity, which is needed to succeed in chang- ing people s lives. Corrections staff do the tough but rewarding job of working positively in a challenging environment. A pink success Last Friday the Pink Ribbon Appeal in Kaikohe was a massive pink success thanks to the volunteers who put in many hours engaging with a generous public who donated in these hard times and left wearing something pink to spread their support. All volunteers came in at the last minute, responding to my article in this newspaper and dressed in pink to make the appeal visible and shop windows turned pink on the day the Pink Army came to town -- and various businesses gave permission to collect outside their shops -- thank you so much for your support Kaikohe! Awareness is our message -- and being aware makes you take action to ensure any problem is discovered early. Early detection is the other main message. At the collecting points there were stories -- encouraging stories proving the success of the mobile screening bus sometimes parked outside the pharmacy -- another of becoming aware and encouraged into action by a work friend being diagnosed. One lady was volunteering to honour her mother s courage. Others because we ve been there, done that and want to fully support others facing the journey. Many because they care about others and have it in their genes to dress in flamboyant pink and help fight a disease that affects one in nine women in Aotearoa -- 2600 each year. Only one of my angel volunteers was challenged as a genuine collector -- had I a mobile phone my collector could have contacted me and I would have left my station at New World to confirm the integrity of my team and the integrity of a woman who was courageously working on her own because we were short on numbers. Please phone the number below to have a chat about your concerns. Thank you Kaikohe -- there is a very special kindness in this town. A good base has been established for next year -- the call will go out again. If you want to talk about breast cancer and the support available phone Ali on 405-3189. Ali Morrison Jack Kaikohe Hotel's facelift I would like to congratulate and thank Lyn Davies and other members of the Mormon Church for the work they are doing without any recognition -- just with love -- for our community. Lyn and her crew have painted the entire side of the Kaikohe Hotel with donated paint. Like the rest of us in this town they hated the appearance of the old hotel, but instead of moaning about it like the rest of us, they pushed up their sleeves, found some donated paint and over the past few months have worked very hard to paint it. As well, they have scrubbed the footpaths outside the hotel and called on owners of other premises to upgrade their buildings -- with success I might add. What wonderful people you are. If I wasn t hobbling around on crutches I would be there with you, but seeing this cannot happen then I want the people of Kaikohe to know just who is doing all this work and doing it for nothing but the satisfaction of cleaning up of our town. Bless you all. Dot Field Kaikohe Magical: Will o' the Wisp quilt by Jan Main.
