Have a hip-hop Christmas Our Lady Of the Assumption School’s dance team performed a Christmas-themed hip-hop dance at Christchurch Airport last week. It was one of 12 schools from across Canterbury selected by the airport to perform. A spokeswoman said the performances were well-attended by friends, families and visitors.

Car park concern shifts Thirty of those submissions, both for and against the parking restrictions, were concerned over the impact on the surrounding streets, namely Vernon Tce. Rapaki Rd is the main access way to Rapaki Track, which is popular with walkers, runners and mountain bikers, especially on the weekends. One submitter opposed the plans because Vernon Tce is “already dangerously congested” and banning parking on Rapaki Rd will only add to the congestion.

„„ By Caitlin Miles VERNON TCE residents fear they will lose off-street car parks if yellow lines are installed on Rapaki Rd. More than two thirds of submitters supported the city council’s plan to install no parking lines along Rapaki Rd and part of Montgomery Tce. The city council received 93 submissions on the plans to restrict parking, 66 supported the idea, 24 were against and three submissions were unclear.

A Vernon Tce resident said they were “terrified that restrictions proposed on Rapaki Rd will have an extremely detrimental effect on traffic, congestion, parking and safety on Vernon Tce,” and opposed the parking ban unless more parking is provided elsewhere. Another submitter supports the city council’s plan but said they want Vernon Tce included before the plans are approved.

CONCERNS: Parking like this on Rapaki Rd could be a thing of the past if yellow no parking lines are installed along the narrow road leading to Rapaki Track.​

Tuesday December 20 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

WHAT MAY be Rapaki Rd residents’ gain, appears to be Vernon Tce residents’ loss. People running and walking the Rapaki Track area have long been a source of pain for residents who live along that very well used stretch of tarmac. That’s because Rapaki residents have difficulty getting in and out of their driveways, and fear hitting cyclists. Yellow no parking lines might be painted in Rapaki Rd (see our page 1 story) to solve the problem. But nearby Vernon Tce residents believe they will take the brunt of the runners and walkers who will go there and clog up their road. We’ll keep you posted. Top young gymnast Courtney McGregor will get High Performance Sport New Zealand funding for the next two years. See page 11. We wish her all of the best. – Barry Clarke

Cafe fears parking loss „„ By Caitlin Miles A SELWYN St shop owner said her business will suffer if the city council removes car parks outside her cafe in favour of cycleways. Sarah Lim and her husband, Cham Chap, opened their cafe, Pies and Coffee, in May last year and have opposed the Selwyn St shop upgrade plans, which involve removing 19 car parks to put in cycleways. Ms Lim said it was hard enough keeping a new business running and, if car parks are removed outside their shop front, they will struggle more as their cafe will no longer be convenient for people passing through. “It will be a big loss for us if they take our parking, people have said they will no longer stop,” Ms Lim said. The Selwyn St shop upgrade plan involves removing car parks to put cycleways down both sides of Selwyn St, between Brougham and Coronation Sts. Other plans for the upgrade include narrowing Coronation St where it intersects with

COMING TOGETHER: An artist’s impression of the proposed upgrade to the Selwyn St shops shows the lack of car parks outside of businesses. PARKING: The owner of this café is concerned car parks could go from outside the cafe to make room for cycleways.

Selwyn St to slow traffic travelling around the corner. Rosewarne St and Somerset Cres will also be effected by the plan changes. The city council said the plans will create a “village feel” for the road. The original Selwyn St shops suffered considerable damage in

the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes and about 60 per cent of the buildings were lost or unusable. A master plan for the new shops was signed off in July 2012, with the aim of rejuvenating the area. Wigram MP Megan Woods said the loss of car parking will damage businesses trying to

start up or continue in the area and she wanted the city council to think of other options. “I think the council need to look at other ways of creating a village feel without taking car parks way from businesses,” Dr Woods said. The city council project team is currently going through feedback received from consultation to present to the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board in February.

In Brief SHOPPING SPREE WINNERS The winners of Shop Scan & Win will each receive a $1000 shopping spree at participating retailers. The winners are: Marlene Dobson, who shopped at Pataka, Gordon Milne (Quick Stop Liquor) and Ben Cloake (Sushi Lane). CYCLEWAY APPROVED THe Quarryman’s Trail cycleway has been approved by the major cycleway routes committee. Twentynine minor changes were made to the $15.5 million route following a staff report, with four more being made by the committee before being approved. The 8.3km cycleway will go from Halswell through Hoon Hay, Addington and Somerfield. . ROADWORKS TO FINISH Roadworks on St Johns St, Woolston, between Glenroy St and St Lukes St, will finish this week. The section of road has been closed for road, footpath, kerb and channel repairs. A detour will be in place along Glenroy, Hargood and Clydesdale Sts but will reopen on Thursday. LIBRARY REBUILD THe city council has given the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board decision-making power over the Woolston Library and Community Centre rebuild. The board will also handle the management of the centre.

Caring for TurTles

Foot injury needing veterinary attention. Turtle Facts: Turtles are not your average pets. They are fascinating creatures that aren’t particularly complicated to care for as long as you invest a little time and have the right equipment, you can enjoy them for a possible 25 to 40 years! Pet turtles in NZ are usually red-eared sliders or snake necks. Turtles are cold blooded so regulate their temperature from their environment, moving between sunning area and the layers of warm and cool water. Turtles have hard shells made up of around 60 bones covered by plates called scutes. Scutes are shed once or twice a year and can be easily scratched by minor trauma or softened by prolonged immersion in warm water. When they bask in the sun, their scutes dry and firm back up. The shell is part of its skeleton which is attached to the spine and the rib cage so they can’t crawl out of it. They can feel pressure and pain through their shells, just as you can feel pressure through your fingernails. Enviroment Turtles can grow to be 13-28cm in length so they will need a relatively large enclosure. An outdoor enclosure is the best place for your turtles – one with water to swim, rocks to sunbathe on and some shelter under which to keep cool. If you are going to keep your turtle in an aquarium, it is very important to keep it clean. Turtles are messy eaters so the water needs to be changed regularly & good filter is essential. Plenty of natural light is good, but they also need special UV bulbs and a heat lamp. A full spectrum UVA/ UVB reptile light is necessary for the production of calcium and maintenance of the hardness of their shells. The ideal temperature in an aquarium should be carefully monitored and in the correct range. Gravel is not necessary, and very small gravel can be ingested by your turtle and this can cause blockage problems. Use stones that are large enough not to be swallowed or river rocks.

Diet A healthy, balanced diet for turtles consists of a wide variety of foods, from snails to alfalfa. Red-eared turtles are omnivores, eating mostly meat when young and becoming vegetarian as they age and need less protein. Juveniles turtles (up to 1yr old) should be fed twice a day and adults every second day. They can only feed in water. Turtles like to eat worms, snails, insects, fish and boiled chicken. The plants they prefer include most varieties found in tropical fish tanks, plus lettuce, cabbage, alfalfa, and berries. Turtle food bought from a pet shop contains essential vitamins and minerals including calcium, which is needed for the development of the shell. A poor diet results in a soft shell and a lethargic pet. Do not feed - Red meat or processed meat. Cat or dog food, avocado, spinach, silverbeet, peas, corn, cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, fruits, raw chicken, rhubarb, beetroot, tomato, celery Turtle Problems If your Turtle has the correct diet and environment it is unlikely to get ill or have problems but there are a few things to look out for. These include: Soft shell syndrome (Metabolic Bone Disease): a result of poor diet and/or insufficient lighting. Fungal infections: a cotton-like layer on the shell, eyes or mouth. Respiratory infections: Wheezing, lethargy, a runny nose and loss of appetite, all due to an environment that is too cold. If you see any of these symptoms in your pet, make sure you take them to us for assessment and treatment. I really enjoy looking after the turtles that come through our vet clinic. They are beautiful, amazing and resilient creatures. There is never a dull moment at work and you never know what creatures we will treat next!

This week’s opinion piece was written by retiring City Missioner Michael Gorman about not losing sight of what Christmas really means For most of us Christmas is a time of great happiness. Children are excited as they receive gifts and we use the time to get together as families and with friends to celebrate. For some people, this time of year also has great religious significance as we recall the birth of Jesus. Whatever our belief, it is a time to get together with those we love and enjoy ourselves. Not everyone has good reason to celebrate. For some people, Christmas reminds them of happier days long gone. Days when, for example, they were not fighting addiction, had not suffered loss and separation and were not unemployed and

living in poverty. Christmas can be a time of great loneliness if there has been death or family separation. Many old people are forgotten in the busy Christmas rush. Christmas can also be a time of over spending. We all want to give as much as we can to our children and to those we love. We are often seduced by advertising and easy credit into buying goods that we cannot afford and we are then in debt for much of the next year. While not wanting to be the Grinch who stole

Christmas, maybe we should cut back our spending to what we can afford. Homemade gifts or offers to help out during the year are just as acceptable as expensive presents and still tell people we love them. Remembering the lonely and being aware of the need to include them in our celebrations and giving people our time may be the very best gift. And, if it is safe to do so, then Christmas may be the time for family reconciliation. Even if Christmas has no religious meaning for us we can still give love – the greatest gift of all.

Cuddly Coachy gets VIP care Car park „„ By Caitlin Miles WHEN PET Doctors Barrington met Coachy, the worse for wear Waiau Lodge Hotel cat, they decided to treat her for free. The hotel was badly damaged following the November 14, 7.8 magnitude earthquake and Coachy went missing, turning up five days later looking uncomfortable. Somerfield resident Carl Wadham was retrieving a jukebox and a pool table in the hotel when he spotted Coachy. A cat lover, he wanted to make sure she could get some help and

DAMAGED: Waiau Lodge Hotel suffered significant damage in the November 14, 7.8 magnitude earthquake.

asked Pet Doctors Barrington to have a look at her. “I decided to call the vet in Christchurch and see if they would help the cat,” he said. Team leader Emily Coulter said they had planned to just look after her, but when the team met her and found how much they liked Coachy they decided to take a closer look at her. Coachy was X-rayed and while she had no broken bones, her teeth “weren’t in the best shape”. The vets performed dental surgery, administered antibiotics and kept her for two weeks. “She was a typical pub cat, just wanted cuddles from everyone and she was quite a vocal cat, but really nice,” Ms Coulter said. She said the bill would have run into several hundred dollars but since they volunteered to do it, it was free. “We just volunteered our own time, like our lunch breaks and that so we could get her fixed up,” she said. When the vets cleared her to go Mr Wadham took her back to Waiau much to the joy of her owners. “They were very happy to have FRIENDLY: Coachy with nurses Brooke Stove and Hayley Lawrence at Barrington Pet Doctors. her back,” he said.

concern shifts

•From page 1 If the city council proceeds with plans as they are, parking restrictions would run along the left side of Rapaki Rd from Centaurus Rd to Montgomery Tce, and on the right hand side on the top stretch of the road. Montgomery Tce would also have restrictions on the left hand side of the road leading to Erewhon Tce. Fourteen submissions also raised concerns about where residents with no off-street parking would park, suggesting “residents only” parking permits for sections of the road affected by the proposal. The matter will go to the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board in February to be discussed. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the city council need to put parking restrictions on roads surrounding Rapaki Rd?

Tasman Gillies

Environmentalist follows in the Tasman Gillies, 27 of Ngāi Tahu (Ngāti Wheke), is a third generation tāngata tiaki and guardian of Lyttelton Harbour. Annabelle Dick talked to him about his work and how he almost followed a completely different career path You work for Ngāi Tahu, can you tell me about what you do? I’m an environmental advisor – mahinga kai monitoring and enhancement for Ngāi Tahu. You’re also tāngata tiaki – what does that mean and what do you do in that role? Tāngata tiaki are guardians responsible for managing fisheries resources. In regards to my role as tāngata tiaki, it’s an ongoing thing. It’s the legislative side so it’s a ministerial appointment. Effectively we manage the mātaitai (an identified traditional fishing ground with special status) and issue customary fishing permits for the ngāti wheke area. In the harbour, ngāti wheke is a representative on the Whakaraupo/Lyttelton Catchment Management Plan so I’m the science advisor for that. You’re a third generation tāngata tiaki, can you tell me about your family and their involvement? My pōua was involved in the establishment of the first

mataitai reserve at Rapaki. The whole purpose is a recognition of rangatiratanga and the relationship with the traditional fishing grounds and customary fishing management within the mataitai. They were made the first ever tāngata tiaki. Did having the family connection prompt you to follow it as a career? It definitely influenced it, but I didn’t go to university intending to study it or come out involved in this area. My Dad’s a GP so I went down to study medicine and in the first year I knew it wasn’t for me. I’m not sure if I would’ve got into my second year, but regardless, I didn’t want to do it. Funnily enough, I told my dad and he laughed and said “good, because I didn’t think you wanted to do it, but I didn’t want to influence your decision.” I laugh at that because I could’ve saved myself a year but, at the same time, I had to realise it. I changed course and ended up gravitating towards marine

science and work associated with mahinga kai. Did you learn a lot about your family in the process? Yes. You start to run into people that used to know my pōua and talk to them. The people I work with now at Ngāi Tahu worked with him when

he was alive and, being an iwi, some of them are related to him as well so you hear stories. You definitely learn the technical things like dates and specific legislative parts and what mātaitai is and taiapure. Considering the involvement your pōua had, do you feel any

pressure to live up to his name? Not at all – if anything it’s more understanding about what he wanted. The process that him and Henry Couch were involved with, and what they did to get the mātaitai in place, it was a lengthy process. For me, it’s about understanding what he wanted to achieve because Ngāi Tahu always uses the saying “Mō tātou, ā, mō kā uri, ā muri ake ne,” which means “for us and our children after us.” It’s a pretty straightforward concept. Knowing my pōua was involved in that whole process, and being third generation tāngata tiaki, it’s quite a literal thing for me. In his mind, he wanted to sustain the fisheries and have management over it so our generation could too. It comes back to the concept of kaitiakitanga, or kaitiaki, which means guardianship or stewardship over the environment. Ngāti Wheke is my hapu, so that’s Rāpaki. Our area is Lyttelton Harbour or Whakaraupo and because I whakapapa back to there, kaitiaki or guardianship is also a responsibility – so our world view is we have a responsibility to take care of it as well.

footsteps of his ancestors Being tāngata tiaki is not so much about continuing his legacy – it’s more what I should be doing anyway. The kaitiaki concept isn’t exclusive to Maori, I think people should have a responsibility towards the environment and take care of it because we’re being trusted to take care of it while we’re here for future generations. Did you grow up at Rāpaki? We moved to Rāpaki when I was nine. I was born in Australia and lived in a little town called Alstonville near Byron Bay. Both of my parents are Kiwi and I have two older sisters. We kind of grew up in the bush – we lived in a big valley and the next neighbour was a kilometre away so we had all the room to play around but we had to be careful because it was Aussie. We knew we were Maori but, in Australia, we were absent from the culture in a sense. When I moved here, it was a big learning curve. I think that was why our parents wanted us to move back to see those things. What does your family do? My mum and dad still live in Rāpaki – he’s a doctor. My sister works for the Ministry of Education, but she was previ-

HOME: Tasman Gillies is at home in the harbour.

ously a Maori teacher at Lincoln High School. My other sister is a dentist in Masterton. What was it like moving to Rāpaki? It was a shock initially. You can know you’re Maori but then someone goes “oh you’re Maori, do you want to be in the Kapa Haka group?” I didn’t even know what that was. People look at you funny because they know

things about your culture that you don’t. But in saying that, my sister became a Maori teacher. It’s been a massive learning curve but also a really good one. It’s more than the acknowledgement I’m Maori now. Now I’m part of it. Where did you go to school? I went to Lyttelton West then Cashmere High School. I heard you were head boy,

too? You kept that one quiet. Yeah I was . . . that was a laugh. Do you have any hidden talents? I won the dance competition at the work Christmas function out of like 300 people. I don’t know what kind of dancing I was doing and when and where I picked it up . . . I just free-styled. I think I picked it up from those Step Up films from years ago. I

was dressed as The Wiggles with a few of the guys from work. What do you do for fun? I love surfing and skiing and I used to do waka ama, too, which is outrigger canoeing. Have you travelled overseas? In 2014, after I had submitted my masters thesis, I went to Canada. I lived in Whistler for a year working at the bar and on the mountain and just skied and had fun. I had a good time and, by the end of the year, I came back wanting to make use of my degree and be more involved in something besides living paycheck to paycheck. Were there any bear encounters? Yeah, walking through the village early morning and I was still quite tired and went through the forest section in the valley. I looked up and there’s a beer standing just in front of me. He didn’t really care so I just turned around cause I didn’t want to deal with it. You get them everywhere. They’re quite clever so a lot of the door handles are knobs because they know how to open the levers. Stuff like that I wasn’t used to. The raccoons were hilarious but they’re the weirdest creatures that waddle around.

Boosting whitebait numbers across the city’s waterways „„ By Caitlin Miles VOLUNTEERS were recognised for spending 400 hours helping to get whitebait back into the Heathcote as a citywide project comes to an end. Cassels and Sons Brewery hosted an event on behalf of the Whaka Inaka project to thank all of the people who helped get whitebait numbers up as part of the project. The project was started at the end of 2015 by Canterbury University’s Shane Orchard and EOS Ecology with the hope of finding suitable locations for whitebait to spawn and raise the level of fish in the Heathcote River, Steamwharf Stream and Lake Kate Sheppard. Over the course of the project, volunteers and school pupils put in about 400 hours of work to triple the number of whitebait in the Heathcote River. EOS Ecology environmental scientist Kirsty Brennan said it had been rewarding to see so many members of the community wanting to learn and help. “It was great seeing the excitement on people’s faces . . . getting the community engaged has been really important,” Ms

Brennan said. The school children spent time learning about life cycles, habitats and threats to whitebait, as well as assessing spawning grounds along the waterways. Some schools kept whitebait in the classroom to watch them develop over time. Recently, EOS hosted an Inanga

(whitebait) Celebration Day where schools went down to part of the Heathcote River in Hansen Park to release their whitebait back into the river. This project was funded by the Department of Conservation, the Brian Mason Trust and contributions from local businesses.

Christchurch-based FreshChoice and SuperValue brands manager Liz de Lange said: “We encourage customers to look at what they are able to afford and pop a few extra items in their trolley to give to the local charity.” The supermarkets are also collecting for the Red Cross’s earthquake appeal at all checkouts. Collections have been started by a $5000 donation from the supermarket group.

THREE SCHOOLS in the Southern View area took advantage of a technology workshop at St Margaret’s College recently, learning how to build robots and skills for the future. Pupils from Te Whanau Tahi, Rowley Ave School and Te Waka Unua came together to experience robotics, 3D design and printing, coding and makerspace. The aim of the event was to provide pupils with an opportunity to be exposed to a range of technology projects that allowed the development of personal as well as technical skills. St Margaret’s wants to provide ongoing workshops and programmes for students and teachers from other Christchurch and Canterbury schools. Through their experience, children have been given

Funding for Rio ‘baby’ HIGH PERFORMANCE Sport New Zealand has committed to a two-year investment in Halswell gymnast Courtney McGregor. The 18-year-old was the baby of the Olympic team in Rio, where she finished 13th in her specialty apparatus of vault. “As far as we are aware, Courtney is the first artistic gymnast to be funded by HPSNZ. This is a great achievement for both Courtney and for the sport of gymnastics in New Zealand,” said GymSports NZ chief executive Tony Compier. HPSNZ is hoping to see McGregor grow on her performance at Rio, with an eye toward the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. McGregor is now a student athlete in the United States at Boise State University and is on a four-year scholarship under head coaches Tina Bird and Neil Resnick. The two led the college team to a record 15-meet unbeaten regular season last year. “I’m learning so much here at Boise and to know that my hard work and goals are being recognised and supported from home is fantastic. It also helps to justify all the time and money that my parents have invested in my gymnastics over the years to get me here. I’m stoked,” said McGregor. She is at her family home in Halswell for Christmas and will return to Boise in the new year.

SPORTS FINALIST: Keas coach Andrew Auimatagi is hoping to win his second major award after taking home the John Coffey Cup for coach of the year at the Canterbury Rugby League awards in October.

WE ARE ON THE MOVE AGAIN...

Keas coach eyes up award

TO A NEW LOCATION IN FERRYMEAD, DUE TO EARTHQUAKE REPAIRS

LINWOOD KEAS coach Andrew Auimatagi is one of three finalists nominated for domestic coach of the year at the New Zealand Rugby League awards. The award ceremony will take place in Auckland on January 20, with Auimatagi up against Papakura Sea Eagles coach Richie Blackmore and Counties Manukau Stingrays, New Zealand Residents and Southern Cross Campus coach, Rod Ratu, for the award. Auimatagi coached the Keas to the Massetti Cup minor premiership and then the Pat Smith Trophy in the Canterbury club grand-final.

He then led the Canterbury Bulls to a third place finish in the New Zealand Premiership, narrowly missing out on a finals berth on points differential. The former Keas player was also assistant coach of the New Zealand Residents side which defeated New Zealand Maori 30-10. In October, Auimatagi won the coach of the year award at the Canterbury Rugby League awards. Jordan Riki, who won the under-18 Canterbury club competition with the Halswell Hornets/ Hornby Panthers, is also a finalist for the under-16 domestic player of the year award.

As well as vegetables and proteins it contains healthy carbs, so it keeps you full.” Healthkicks also has a shop in Avonhead, at 104 Staveley Street, phone 342 9541, where customers can purchase items or pick up their orders.

Their experiences on New Zealand reality TV show MKR was the catalyst for two Christchurch women, Ricki and Jessie, to start their own food business – with the focus firmly on healthy eating. The pair spent many hours spent tasting, testing and developing a series of healthy, nutritionally balanced salads before launching Healthkicks in April 2015. “We wanted to provide healthy options for everyday people,” says Ricki. “Everyone’s busy these days and as a result they sometimes find it quicker and easier to get fast foods, which are often unhealthy. We wanted to change that culture and offer healthier options.” Their selection of fresh, tasty salads can be purchased in takeaway containers, which hold a generous portion of up to 500 grams for $10. The salads can also be vacuum-packed, so they will last longer in the fridge. Those without lettuce can be served hot or cold. They are also available as platters to serve at parties and barbeques, and with

wood panelled lounge is a wonderful space to perhaps achieve a quiet area from the bustle of family life. The adjoining conservatory can also double as room for teenagers, being big enough to take a table tennis table. A media room complete with speakers, projector and screen is a great place to entertain family and friends, perhaps after a bbq and swim in the heated inground pool. But perhaps the real surprise lies at the top of the house. Here is a purpose-built workspace, generous in size and ideal for those who wish to work from home. There is room for three people to comfortably work plus storage

Christmas Church Services Christmas – a time for celebration & worship Christmas Day is a holy day for Christians who mark the 25 December as the birth of Christ. They come together in prayer and song, heralding the coming of Jesus, the son of God. Leading up to Christmas day is the period of advent. It begins on the Sunday closest to the 30 November, with the advent calendar counting down the days to Christmas while the advent wreath contains five candles representing the Sundays before the special day and one for Christmas Day. Joseph, a carpenter and Mary had been travelling 90 miles from Nazareth to Bethlehem; as Joseph was required to participate in a Census where the Roman rulers counted the number of Jewish people for tax

purposes. Heavily pregnant Mary had been riding on a donkey. She gave birth in a cave stable where they slept with the animals due to there being no room at the inn. The nativity scene shows Jesus lying in a manger in the stable; often re-enacted by children as part of church services leading up to Christmas Day with some churches even having live animals as part of this service. A bright Star signalled the coming of Christ and guided wise men who took gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the new born while shepherds were led there by an angel. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services are a time for rejoicing the birth of Christ when carols are sung and there is much happiness.
