Beach incident at Karioitahi

Glad to see someone is addressing the dangerous behaviour at Karioitahi. I have recently taken my daughters and horses for rides there, and couldn’t get over the dangerous, reckless driving on the beach around people, young kids and animals. Three to four utes were drifting around each other, driving five wide down the beach all with bottles in hand, towards […]

A note from Emma’s desk

My little-big brother turned 16 last weekend. I can’t remember when he went from being a kid to a young man, but all of a sudden, he has a beard.

His Word – Standing on the Promises

Quote; “To abide in faith is to put aside feeling and selfish desires, to walk humbly with the Lord, to appropriate His promises, and apply them to all occasions, believing that God will work out His own plans and purposes in your heart and life. {FLB 122} Let us read the words to this great old Hymn; Standing on the […]

His Word – God’s Gone!!

Baker’s Banter – December 2017

I know a lot of people saw the video footage of the guy getting driven into on Karioitahi Beach last week and the things leading up to that moment and the things afterwards. As an ex cop I am worried when well meaning folk try to take the law into their own hands It might seem like the right thing […]

Carrot truck retraction

In the edition of Tuesday 28 November, the Post Newspaper stated that the driver of a carrot truck lost control of the vehicle. This was incorrect and it was a tail-gate hinge that broke and caused the carrots to spill onto the road. The driver did not lose control of his vehicle. The Post apologises for any inconvenience caused.

Letter – Solar panels stolen from cenotaph

What can one say? This act of vandalism is so heartless? What has happened to our society of youth today, or pardon me it, could have been an older person who thinks these solar lights belong in their garden. My god what is our community becoming? As for the thugs that robbed my local petrol station, I’ve lost count on […]
