This is where we preserve the older Gold Stars.

Winner of the 2005 U.S. Golf Open and the 2005 HSBC World Match Play Championship, Michael Campbell, still calls Porirua home. He received a public welcome in the city's central square on return from the Open. His home club is Titahi Bay.
Bacoor achieves 343 years
State of emergency on the whole planet. The world is fundamentally being cut out and measured, everybody wants to build Sokobanjas, but God says: 'No, it exists somewhere already'. Sokobanja is becoming one of the most interesting tourist destinations for young people and at present it is definitively number one in the tourist scene of Serbia.
Tucson was originally inhabited around 7000 BC by early Paleo-Indians, and later replaced by groups designated by archaeologists as the Hohokam. As such, Tucson is the longest continuously inhabited location in the United States.

King Kong from Wellington
As part of New Zealand's rescue of Hollywood from recession, Peter Jackson has produced another blockbuster, "King Kong", which had its world premiere in New York (where it is set) but soon had its local premiere in Wellington where Jackson is based and where most of the film was made.
Number one city in the East
In 1998, Manchester, New Hampshire was named the "Number One Small City in the East" (Eastern U.S.) by Money Magazine. Residents still revel in that accolade, and believe we have built success upon success. Since then, we now have a National Hockey League team, the Manchester Monarchs, playing in a brand new Verizon Wireless Arena, and a minor league baseball team, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, playing in a new, riverfront stadium. Manchester's other claim to fame is that it's the home of actor/comedian Adam Sandler. If that doesn't get us a gold star, I don't know what does!
