Would you take on a race like this?

The Team Reporter from Marlborough Express

Running 85km in a race on a rough back-country track is not for the faint-hearted, and requires grit, determination and a lot of courage.
The only place to bail out if you've had enough is at the halfway mark. Local doctor Emily Marfell had a nasty fall just 32km into the race, but pressed on with a nasty gash on her arm and damaged ribs to complete the race. She received a special award in recognition of her effort, and $500 to donate to charity. Read the full story.

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

How often do you check your smoke alarms?

The Team Reporter from Marlborough Express

Emergency services were called to a burning house on George Street in Blenheim early on Thursday morning.
A Fire and Emergency spokesman said the house was well ablaze when fire crews arrived.
When you’re asleep, you lose your sense of smell. Don’t assume your smoke alarms are working.
It’s important to maintain smoke alarms regularly and check that they’re working.
Fire and Emergency recommends checking your alarm every month.
Press the test button to sound the alarm, and if you cannot reach the button easily, use a broom handle.
They also recommend having an emergency plan, and to practice it regularly. In a fire, you'll only have 1 or 2 minutes to escape your house.
See the full story on the George Street fire in Friday's Marlborough Express.
