Call in culprits loitering around property By CARYN WIGMORE People are being urged to call Kumeu police if they see someone without identification loitering on their property. Culprits will have all sorts of lame excuses for being there when confronted, Kumeu police sergeant Mick Rickards says. Whether it s collecting scrap metal or they re looking for their dog or their lost aunt, if it sounds suspicious people should call us, he says. He warns people to be vigilant if their neighbours are away on holiday. If you see a strange vehicle going to your neighbour s property, give us a call or at least call the neighbour and say should these people be on the property? Even if we go there and they commit no offences, we find out who they are and we know who they are rather than them just going away. We can obtain details and verify their excuses for being on the property -- or negate it. Offenders are checking if anyone is home and if there s anything to steal, he says. They will knock on the door with some pseudo legitimate excuse or walk around the house. They often case houses during the day when people are away at work. Mr Rickards urges nor-west residents to note registration plate numbers and descriptions of sus- picious people. Phone Kumeu police on 412-7756 or call the Crimestoppers line on 0800-555-111. Honours are a family tradition Margaret Kawharu: Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to Maori.

Photo: MICHAEL FIELD/FAIRFAX MEDIA Two of Sir Hugh Kaw- haru s five daughters have followed in his footsteps, receiving New Year honours. Margaret and Merata Kawharu have both been made Members of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to Maori. They are affili- ated to Ngati Whatua and Ngapuhi and have strong ties to the Reweti Marae west of Wai- mauku. The sisters are among eight New Year honours recipients in Rodney. Reweti resident Mar- garet has made a signifi- cant contribution through her advocacy and work with Ngati Whatua o Kaipara and is heavily involved with its $22.1 million Treaty of Waitangi settlement, signed at Shelly Beach in September last year. My achievements with the treaty settle- ments are because of -- and working together with -- Ngati Whatua o Kaipara and if the light shines on this part of Ngati Whatua because of what we ve achieved then I m happy, Marga- ret says. I ve been mentored and supported by the whanau all the way -- truly. And the footsteps were already there in the words of those of our ancestors who had gone before -- my father pointed that out to me long ago. The next journey will be the telling one. Associate professor Merata Kawharu, now in Dunedin, was honoured for her services to Maori education. The Auckland University James Henare Maori Research Centre director has writ- ten extensively on Maori development. Merata published Whenua: Managing Our Resources, shortlisted for the Montana Book Awards in 2003. She also received Marsden Fund Awards in 2000 and 2010. Merata has also contributed to the New Zealand Historic Places Trust and to the Maori Heritage Council. A Kumeu man instru- mental in a major up- grade of air force Orion aircraft has received the New Zealand Dis- tinguished Service Dec- oration. Squadron leader Keith Bartlett was posted to Texas in 2008 for the Orion P-3 systems upgrade.
