Northern communic- ations centre shift man- ager Steve Smith says this included a flooded basement at Queens Arcade on Queen St, a flooded basement in Greenlane, a house flood on Frederick St in Hills- borough and flooding on Commerce St and Fort St in the city. Fire crews were also called to a small fire at Westhaven Drive that started from a switch- board, and a larger fire on Saturday morning in Onehunga. Mr Smith says three units and a fire safety officer attended the Neil- son St address to deal with the blaze which took nearly two hours to bring under control. Woman caught at prison A young woman caught trying to sneak 32 grams of cannabis into the Auckland Central Re- mand Prison may end up in jail. The incident happened when prison staff noticed the visitor handing a package to a prisoner. The visit was term- inated and the prisoner was taken to the search area. Staff found a pack- age believed to be cannabis leaf, regional intelligence manager Don Owen says. The prisoner was charged with misconduct and could face depart- mental sanctions. Police have charged the woman with pos- session of cannabis with intent to supply. Sadly, this young woman s actions may have a big impact on her life. This is a reminder that anyone who makes a misjudgment like this will face serious conse- quences. Mr Owen says anyone being pressured to help prisoners get drugs can call the Crimestoppers line on 0800-555-111. Try acupuncture in 2011 Start the new year by trying acu- puncture at the free Wellness Day at the NZ College of Chinese Medicine in Greenlane. Or just come and have a look around the college and consider enrolling in the Bachelor Degree in acupuncture and Chinese medi- cine. Enrolments are now on for February. Clinic practice is the corner- stone of the Bachelor degree that the NZ College of Chinese Medi- cine offers. The student clinics which treat public patients and the Wellness Day clinics are an opportunity for the college to engage with the public and also to provide a service. If you are impressed by your treatment on Wellness Day you can book to attend the weekly clinics. If you decide to study in this area you can choose a major of Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine or a combination of the two (Chinese Medicine) and com- plete either a three or four year qualification to graduate as a Chinese medicine or acupuncture practitioner. The degree is NZQA approved and meets ACC regulation requirements as well as inter- national standards. There is a good future in the field because the government is now considering regulating Chinese medicine and acupunc- ture. Regulation will mean practitioners will be able to work in public hospitals and clinics. The programme at the NZ Col- lege of Chinese Medicine is a com- bination of theory and practical. You will apply theory from the wisdom of ancient Chinese sages as well as contemporary western medicine. You will learn to be a good consultant, and the practice of locating and needling acupunc- ture points. The next Wellness day is Saturday January 29, 1pm to 4.30pm, ground floor 321 Great South Rd, Greenlane. Phone and book if you want a treatment! Free off-street park- ing.
