MOSS is Back!

The Motueka Skills Swap (MOSS) is back. MOSS is a non-profit system developed within the community for the exchange of goods, services and skills between members without the need of New Zealand dollars.  It is for barter, only better, because you can supply the people in the system who want what you have and receive what you want from a different person in the system.

We are starting small and growing. A skills directory will be published, enabling members to advertise the skills and services they wish to offer or may require. This is available online to members, as well. » Read more

Rev. Peter Norman Clearly Explains Current Financial Crisis

This month, Rev. Peter Norman gave a Sunday sermon at St Andrews here in Motueka that clearly explained the current financial situation in a way that made the economics understandable. Using the American example, he follows the path of subprime loans and rising interest rates to the rising number of defaulted mortgage payments and so on. He kindly agreed to provide the text of the sermon to Kate at Motueka News Online.
