Yana’s Yarn—13 February 2018

I was one of the lucky ones who got Monday off as well as Tuesday and I spent most of my day watching the SuperBowl. Every year, I watch the NFL season at a distance, ready to jump on the bandwagon of the SuperBowl final and cheer for the underdogs. It’s a game that I slowly increase my knowledge of […]

Yana’s Yarn – 6 Februray 2018

Today, Tuesday 6 February is Waitangi Day. We celebrate the founding document that was signed on this day in 1840. While it is a public holiday, it’s important to remember the historic moment of New Zealand’s timeline. We’re a young nation in comparison to other countries, but our history is special.

In case you missed it: The Post Newspaper moved homes last week. We’re now located at 7 Hall Street, Pukekohe. It’s just around the corner from our old office, but still nice and central to Pukekohe. Our phones will be back on line this week, so if you haven’t been able to get in touch with us, we apologise. We […]

Yana’ Yarn— 30 January

Encouraging good and safe driver habits can be a hard one. We all think we’re ‘right’ when it comes to being on the road, but our national road toll of deaths would say otherwise. If you haven’t heard of the post stating tips to avoid speeding, that has gone wild on social media in the past few weeks, let me […]

Yana’s Yarn—16 January 2018

Welcome back to 2018. If you’re anything like me you’ll spend the first two months writing the date as 2017 and then scribbling it out. I’m not sure about you, but I was ready to go back to work after my break. I was relaxed, rested (maybe a little too rested) and rearing to go. Until I got to work, […]

Seasons Greetings

Andrew Bayly – MP for Hunua As I write this column, summer, the real New Zealand summer, is in evidence. Warm, dry weather, no wind, no rain. Everything we have been asking for. It doesn’t suit everyone, of course, the farmers and market gardeners would like some rain on a regular basis. I hope you have some quality family time […]

Opinion: Fighting crime vs patrolling Karioitahi Beach

It seems that confusion still reigns over the policing of Karioitahi Beach. Since late October 2015, the number of stories that I have written with regards to ongoing ‘activities’ on the beach, the rules and the regulations surrounding the ‘permits’ accumulate to an average one per every six months. However, it seems as though people still need to be reminded […]

A note from Emma’s Desk— 19 Dec

Being the queen of procrastination, I will admit that writing this column, in this very issue, has to be a new record of mine. As Bossman Steve says, ‘Eat the ugly Monkey first.’ Yet the struggle of bringing myself to write my last Editor’s Note has been very real. I have handed in my resignation here at the Post Newspaper, […]

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. I have heart palpitations over the fact that he now can go for his driver license—can he even do his own washing? I do feel slightly sorry for my little […]

A note from Emma’s desk

I know how frustrating it can be when you receive unwanted pamphlets, flyers and those pesky bills in letter box. Sometimes it seems as though we are just inundated with them. Being the self confessed shopaholic that I am, I like going through them. However, it has been brought to our attention that over the last couple of weeks, some […]
