IN BRIEF Trucks old and new gather About 60 vintage and modern trucks will feature at Wakefield's Historic Transport Museum during the two-day truck show at Higgins Park this weekend. Some of trucks are nearly 90 years old. Nelson freight companies like TNL and other businesses that regularly use large vehicles will have their trucks represented, and the Nelson Vintage Car Club will also be in attendance. Friends of the Museum will offer free rides for children on their miniature cars and trucks. The Mitchener family of Nelson has also gifted 18 classic model trucks for display at the museum. Museum chairman Roger Humphries said money from the show would go towards a new storage shed directly facing the museum. The show runs from 10am till 4pm this Saturday and Sunday. Entry $5, children free. New dog bylaw introduced The Nelson City Council has introduced its new dog control policy and bylaw. Deputy mayor Ali Boswijk said it struck a balance between meeting the wishes of dog owners and the wider public. In most places dog owners can now choose whether to have their dogs on or off lead, provided they ensure their dogs are under control at all times. Stricter controls remain in place for other sensitive areas such as children's playgrounds, shopping centres, and reserves with significant recreation and conservation values. ''We've taken on board widespread public feedback and worked really hard to meet the wishes of dog owners and the wider community. We believe the bylaw reflects a consistent and clear approach to managing dogs,'' she said. Detailed maps and information on where dogs can and cannot go are available on the council website at: nelsoncitycouncil.co.nz/dog- control-policy/ Copies will also be available at libraries and at the council's Customer Service Centre which can post copies on request. Learn to love technology International author and Access Consciousness facilitator Liam Phillips will give a talk to help people overcome their fear of technology. He will speak at Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology between 7pm and 9pm on Wednesday, March 6. Liam said he used to hate technology. However, he has written six books using multimedia technology and uses technology to reach people worldwide who take his teleseminars. ''People of all ages can feel overwhelmed with today's technology but it is hard to avoid now. If you don't engage with it, it can hold back your business growth, academic success, and even your relationships,'' he said. Liam is touring New Zealand presenting his Joy of Technology class.
