Some of the last words of Jesus as he was nailed
to a cross were, "Father forgive them for they don't
know what they are doing." Forgiveness I think
has three stages.
We choose to give up the desire to get even.
We work to see the person who hurt us
as a fellow human being.
We seek the best and pray for
the other person.
Is there someone you should
work to forgive? Forgiveness will
be good for them and you.

Crashes don't stop
Scout's top placing
By ANDY MCGECHAN
Scout Fletcher experienced the
highest of highs and the lowest
of lows in her first motorcycling
expedition to the North Island
this month, but still she emer-

125GP class as the five-round
series wrapped up in Taupo on
Sunday, but it was not without a
few scary moments along the
Racing against the men and

She headed to Taupo for the
weekend's fifth and final round
in second position overall and
with an eye on beating cham-
pionship favourite Guenther.
But a succession of crashes at
Taupo ruined her title bid -- and
threatened to cost her the cham-
pionship's second spot as well.
In the end, she fought back to
finish a brave third in the final
race of the weekend, enough for
her to hold on as she finished
the series still 10 points ahead of
fellow Honda rider Aaron Has-
san, of Auckland.
Scout, a first-year university
student at Canterbury, studying
biochemistry, knew she was
jumping into the deep end with
her national motorcycling cam-
paign this year, but she reckons
the final result was worth all the
time, effort and grief.
I've been racing about three
years now, mostly in the
streetstock 150 class, but
decided to step up the horse-
power stakes this year and give
the GP bikes a go.
I didn't enter the nationals
with high expectations and
thought a top-five finish would
be a good aim. To finish runner-
up is pretty good though.''
