His Word: Bathurst

Just south of Sydney and inland from the Blue Mountains lies a lovely picturesque expansive bowl shaped valley, and right in the middle of the valley is a conical hill, with a quaint wee town nestled right up against its base, you are now in Bathurst, New South Wales.  There is only one way up and down this mountain, and […]

Yana’s Yarn – 02 October 2018

Summer sports are about to kick off as I once again pull out the old football boots that haven’t seen the light of day since the last five aside season.   I received a message from my five aside manager, who also happens to be my younger brother. He’s gathering players for the season and I was lucky enough to make […]

His Word: Forgiven as We Forgive

Quote; “We can receive forgiveness from God only as we forgive others. It is the love of God that draws us unto Him, and that love cannot touch our hearts without creating love for our brethren.  “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.” Matthew […]

Wow! Those 100 ft waves look close!

By Simon Huggett Did you know The Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas cost $1.35 billion U. S dollars? The most expensive cruise ship ever created. You can book a family of four in the family suite for $50,000 for seven days. The ship has a ten-story slide, robot bartenders and 23 pools. In case you don’t like the water […]

Letter: Lucky to have Eagle

I just want to say that your article on the Police Eagle is great, well done!  We are very fortunate to have these choppers and machines operating 24/7 to prevent and stop criminal activity.  I live on Helvetia Road and we often hear the Eagle flying overhead. We were woken early hours one morning by the Eagle. It sounded like they […]

Yana’s Yarn – 25 September 2018

The Mudlarks have finished one third of their work. Hours and hours have gone into clearing the Tamakae Estuary.   But that’s only the beginning. There’s more to go. And by the end of it, 75 hectares of mangroves will have been cleared.   It’s a mammoth effort. I got to be part of it… once. I probably cleared one tree away […]

A precious gem in our community

I’ve been away from home for the past few weeks and have met some interesting people and enjoyed delicious home cooked meals.    But I haven’t been on a luxury cruise or sitting on a tropical island.  Instead, I have just spent about a month in Pukekohe Rehab Hospital recovering from a stroke.     Over the years I’ve driven past the hospital many […]

Yana’s Yarn – 18 September 2018

 Last week I was discussing the extra curricular things we did as kids. It’s cool to see some of the sports, hobbies that kids have these days. Both Jess and I interviewed some great up and coming drivers. They’re both at a young age and have such bright futures ahead. I was never into motoring as a kid. I don’t […]

This is the first time in 26 years that we have been unable to publish due to circumstances beyond our control. We have attempted to contact all of our clients to advise them […]

Yana’s Yarn— 04 September 2018

I started watching the Bachelor Australia last week. The flatties and I got together put on the tv and enjoyed a dose of not so real ‘reality’. We laughed at the irony of us sitting slumped in the lounge wearing track pants, hoodies and pyjamas while commenting on the girls’ hair, make up, dresses and personalities they portrayed. I can’t […]
