To the point
In the twilight of our lives, we have discovered a new game. Mornings in bed, six days of the week, we have fun spending time searching for small snippets of news among the colourful advertisements in our Otago Daily Times. On Sundays, we actually are finding we are experiencing withdrawal symptoms, not being able to play this game.
Gaynor and Baden Gilchrist, Ranfurly

Available in print and digital editions of the Otago Daily Times.


If like Ross, you’re waiting for “100% off our normal price for a new TV”…

Shopping bargains
What is a good deal? The question has to be asked when day after day large retailers offer discounts ranging from 20% to 50%. What are these discounts off? In business, giving discounts all the time means that your retail price has a large markup, or you are going to go broke.
Ross Davidson, Kew.
