Letter: Road courtesy and disability parking spaces

I would like to acknowledge and thank motorists here in Waiuku, and many in Pukekohe, for their consideration and thoughtfulness. I am an unwell and disabled older woman. I must use a walker for safety and stability of my person. I never just ‘step out’ onto a pedestrian crossing. I wait for clear indication that it is safe for me […]

Gone Fishing with Smudge— November 2017

It’s hard to believe that only a month ago we were struggling to get a chance to get out fishing. Since then we couldn’t have asked for better weather. Hopefully you’ve had a chance to make the most of it and catch a few fish in the process. The harbour is fishing very well for trevally but they take a […]

His Word – Balaam’s Curse

There is an interesting story in Ancient Scripture, and this occurs just before Israel crosses the Jordan and into the “Promised Land.” We are today on the same, but “spiritual journey,” that mirrors the Exodus, so this is critical for us, because we are about to face the same problems as we are about to cross Jordan and into the […]

Big event, big numbers, big traffic

The response suggested ways of deactivating the paywave in the cards. While there are no laws regarding using the methods suggested in the letter submitted to The Post, it can sometimes affect the machines or the […]

A note from Emma’s desk

I don’t know if anyone has read, or believes, the Global 2018 predictions from self-claimed clairvoyant, Craig Hamilton-Parker. While I found it interesting, I believe it is just an opinion. I take what he has said with ‘a pinch of salt.’ He has basically told us that we can’t travel to the UK, we are all going broke (I knew […]

His Word -What is Faith?

Here is a term that we throw about in encouragement to one another and often use it ourselves in reality, almost every day, but possibly do not even realize that we are expressing “Faith” in so much more, or in so many various ways. Let us look at the Bible for the concept from its pages. Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith […]
