Ransom Paid

As part of the Dancing Queen Carnival currently being staged (see page 5) a "personality" was "kidnapped" and held to ransom on June 7. After much inveigling by the Highland Queen and her helpers a cache of cash was handed over for the return of the "kidnapee," who turned out to be none other than Jason Jobe of Radio Gisborne fame. The money was by donations from the public and business firms but the exact amount remains a secret until the winning queen is announced.


Handing over the bag of cash to Highland Queen Jacqueline Jacques is Mike Brittenden as the released Mr Jobe looks on.
