ODT Hosts Spelling Bee

In what seems like a miracle after a few seasons of twiddling their thumbs on the fields, the Highlanders have landed a spot in the Super 15 final, with tickets being snapped up like no tomorrow.

Well, at least we’re being acknowledged as people now rather than just students!

The latest GC on the Otago coast is “Victory” the penguin, after he was mauled by sea snakes in the area. According to local scientists, the little fella is back on his feet catching them gnarly waves.

You can tell it’s the mid-year break and no Scarfie antics are happening in Dunedin when a headline regarding the record turnout at the Otago Daily Times Extra! Spelling Quiz is featured on the second page.

Ahhh, you’re not reading the ODT unless you find yourself some great use of a pun in a main headline. This reporter even went that extra mile by discussing how these deep ice-lake divers “got cold feet”. Lolz.
