Guy hate letter
Harmful: Richard Johnson, 41, leaves
court after being sentenced to 300
hours' community work. He must also
pay $1500 to Mrs Bullock for
A Hastings man sent a malicious let-
ter (in ransom note format) to the
grieving family of slain Feilding
farmer Scott Guy to cause maximum
emotional harm, a court has been
Richard Johnson, 41, sent the
anonymous note, in which some of
the letters were dripping with blood,
to Dianne Bullock, mother of Mr
Guy s widow, Kylee.
It said: Mrs Bullock, oh how sad
that such a tragedy has beset your
family. How awful for you and your
daughter. But you are such a cold-
hearted bitch . . . I doubt this incid-
ent has had much effect on you any-
way. What goes around comes
Mrs Guy and her parents were in
Napier District Court last week to
see Johnson sentenced to 300 hours
community work after being found
guilty in May.
He and Mrs Bullock had worked
together in Hastings in 2006. The
pair did not get on and Johnson left
the job in 2007. He sent the letter in
September last year, two months
after Mr Guy, 31, was shot dead out-
side his home.
Scott Guy s father Bryan told The
Dominion Post that it was
disappointing Johnson wasted
both the police and the court s time.
But the bigger impact was on Kylee
and her mother -- there s no doubt
Mr Guy, who was with Dianne
when she opened the letter, said it
left her and Kylee on edge for a long
It brought back a lot of the heart-
ache from those early days, when
Scotty was killed.
Judge Alistair Garland told John-
son it was only because he had no
previous convictions that he avoided
a harsher sentence of home or com-
munity detention. He ordered pay-
ment of $1500 reparation to Mrs
Bullock for emotional harm.
Her estranged husband, Glenn
Bullock, said: I actually feel sorry
for the guy, but there s a bit of anger
there too. I hope he learns from his
stupid mistake, it s done him no
good at all.
All go for deco buses
Shuttle: A conceptual drawing of the
The Marine Parade-Ahuriri
transport link has the green light.
The Napier City Council has
resolved to buy two restyled Amer-
ican buses, at a cost of $1.5 million,
which will be ready before the next
The buses will be designed by a
French company and refitted in
America before being shipped to
Napier by Christmas.
The buses will shuttle tourists
and locals between the critically
vital hospitality and tourism areas
of Ahuriri and the CBD, said
mayor Barbara Arnott.
Many businesses have been
asking for this service. The stylish
buses will attract patrons and will
be flexible enough in their routes
to get maximum use.
The council has approved a
budget in the annual plan, and
these come well within that.
With the go-ahead on the mode
of transport, operating methods
are being investigated.
