UNCLE SONNY JOHNSON 17th September 2011 There are some we meet in passing, and forget as soon as they go. There are some we remember with pleasure, and feel honoured and privileged to know. You were that kind of person, who leaves beautiful memories behind, and there will be many days which will bring fond memories to mind. It doesn't need a special day to bring you to my mind, for days without a thought of you are very hard to find. Forever in our hearts, Sonny, Nicola, Kiana and Mason xxoo.

Lisa's story of myth and reality in love Happy in love: Lisa Liggett, with her sons Zak, 4, and Callum, 7 months, hopes others will take advice from her book to find their own Prince Charming. ' Don't settle for less than in love because otherwise you open yourself up to abuse, heartache and unfulfilled dreams. ' Lisa Liggett Teacher turned writer Lisa Liggett knows all about frogs -- not because she studied them in school, but because she's been out with one. And she has a very clear message to others who might be living with frogs -- stop kissing frogs and find your prince''. The frog-prince scenario is, of course, an analogy Lisa has used in her newly released book Living the Fairytale -- the frog referring to a man who is not truly in love with a woman and who is just stringing her along. Lisa has spent more than 14 years writing the book, which is an autobiographical account of two major relationships she experienced. Divided into three parts, it begins with her rendition of the fairytale The Frog Prince. She then bares her soul about her frog experience in How To Detect A Frog and finally meets her Prince Charming -- a man who truly loves a woman -- in part three -- Pre- paring for the Prince, which embraces such topics as Tak- ing off the Slime-tinted Glasses and Planning your Fairytale Ending. Lisa, from Tikinui in the Kaipara, says it took her years to get the right structure for the book and overcome the fear of failure. It became so personal, I thought no-one would want to read it and maybe the frog wouldn't want me to publish it,'' she says. As she worked through her issues, she discovered the in love'' formula. I'd read lots of books that were so complex, so when I devised the formula, I thought it was really simple and would be able to help a lot of people.'' She says the message is clear. Don't settle for less than in love because otherwise you open yourself up to abuse, heartache and unfulfilled dreams,'' she says. Lisa and her own Prince Charming have been happily married for 13 years. Living the Fairytale is in Northland bookshops. Scientific minds hard at work Young scientists: Ashley Willmot and Ember Seabourne with their burley dispenser. Whangaroa College year 8 students have spent this term working on entries for the Science Fair. The students created five entries but were only allowed to enter four. It was a tough choice as all entries were of a good standard and were potential prize winners. The students joined Kerikeri High School, Taipa Area School, Kaitaia College and Springbank School stu- dents at the Turner Centre in Kerikeri for judging at the end of August. All the hard work paid off, with all four projects winning prizes. The entries chosen to rep- resent Whangaroa College were: Bronze award: Wheat bag versus Hottie: Which was more efficient at warming us up -- a hottie or a wheat bag. Water Safety Prize: Bur- ley Bombers: making a bur- ley bomb that can have a con- trolled dispensing rate. Safety Prize: Re- inventing the wheel: which wheel design is strongest? Bronze: Flax versus String: comparing twine with flax. The prizes were awarded on August 31 at the Turner Centre in Kerikeri.
