The footprints of those who have walked for peace have been immortalised in con- crete in a new peace sign at the Ostend Reserve. The sign is called Ripples of Peace and celebrates two of the island's best known and certainly oldest peace activ- ists, Kara Nelson and Maynie Thompson, who are both 93. The idea for the permanent reminder came from Ostend resident Graham Hooper. He wanted to do something to show what the two women had done for peace and, because Ms Thompson had walked across the United States for the cause, Mr Hoo- per felt footprints were the best idea. The commitment of feet to concrete was done on Ms Thompson's birthday earlier this year with the help of Stoney Ridge concrete pro- ducts owner Brett McDonald. He finished the sign last month after Mr Hooper suc- ceeded in getting funding from the Waiheke Local Board to complete the project. Local board chairwoman Faye Storer says it will be looking at adding a plaque to explain the concept. Mr Hooper says he had wanted the footprints to be part of a peace walk through the reserve when the new footpaths were constructed. I gave up on that idea and instead came up with the idea of a peace circle.'' Visitors to the sign will notice a third set of foot- prints. Mr Hooper says they belong to Skate, another peace activist who took part in the protest at Greenham Common in England and who helped him get the peace sign created. At some stage in the future I would like to add the footprints of the island's other famous peace activists -- the crew of the Rainbow Warrior, and founding members of Greenpeace,'' Mr Hooper says. POLICE BRIEFS A Manurewa man who lost control and crashed his company car on O'Brien Rd during the day on November 28 failed a breath test at the scene of the acci- dent. The 22 year old's breath alcohol level was found to be 525mcg. He was arrested and charged with careless driving and drink- driving. On November 30, a 23-year-old Ostend man was arrested and charged with the culti- vation of cannabis. On December 1 and 2, a 26-year-old Ostend man was arrested for twice causing wilful damage to a house, burglary, possession of a cannabis plant and breaching bail conditions. He spent the night in the Auckland cells before appearing in court the next day. Waiheke police have issued several tickets to speeding drivers over the past week in par- ticular to drivers who are failing to abide by the temporary speed signs by the roadworks on Onetangi Rd. The spokesperson warns there will be some traffic safety operations coming up over the next few weeks which will focus on drink-driving, speed and motorcycles.
