Plan to sort Rapaki Rd parking concerns stalls „„ By Caitlin Miles A PLAN to ban parking on busy Rapaki Rd has been put on hold due to nearby residents’ concerns of the impact on surrounding streets. The road is the main access route to Rapaki Track, which is popular with walkers, runners and mountain bikers – causing issues for people who live on Rapaki Rd. In November, the city council proposed banning parking on Rapaki Rd due to ongoing concern from residents about safely accessing the street and their driveways. A parking ban on one side of Erewhon Tce was also included in the plan, because cars are often parked on that street if Rapaki Rd is full. The proposal was meant to go to the SpreydonCashmere Community Board next month for approval, but that will be put on hold. Following the submissions received, city council acting head of transport Steffan Thomas said the project has been put on hold due to concerns raised over how the surrounding roads will be effected by the ban. The city council received 93 submissions on the plans, 66 supported the idea, 24 were against and three submissions were unclear. Thirty of those submissions, both

for and against the parking restrictions, were concerned over the impact on the surrounding streets, namely Vernon Tce. One submitter opposed the plans because Vernon Tce is “already dangerously congested� and banning parking on Rapaki Rd will only add to the congestion. 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. “As a result, the project has been put on hold temporarily to consider whether any additional parking controls should be proposed further afield,� Mr Thomas said. City councillor Tim Scandrett (left) said Vernon Tce residents had a right to be concerned. “The ideas raised in the submissions were very good ones and we do need to look at the plan again and see what we can do,� Cr Scandrett said. Mr Thomas said the next step of the project will be to undertake further consultation with affected properties if changes are made to the plan.

CONGESTED: The city council will reconsider a parking ban on busy Rapaki Rd until a solution can be found.

Inside

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK CANTERBURY’S police chief John Price gives an insight into the role of a police officer in our weekly Soap Box column on page 4. Price is a good guy who has made an impact since his return to Christchurch as the region’s police chief about 18 months ago. New Zealand police have a deserved reputation as being amongst the best in the world in terms of getting the job done, and integrity. It’s often a thankless job where police have to put up with all sorts off rubbish, often booze and drugfuelled. We also feature Kate Russell, (pages 6-7) who has been a leader in the not-for-profit health sector for 24 years. Reporter Georgia O’Connor-Harding spoke to her about working at the Canterbury Medical Research Foundation and what it was like to raise three children as a solo parent. – Barry Clarke

Signs surprise school principal „„ By Caitlin Miles SIGNS WARNING motorists of St Anne’s Catholic School have been installed on Ferry Rd. The signs come after Southern View highlighted concerns the school had over pupil safety on the busy road in Woolston. School principal Dallas Wichman said while he was happy the signs had been installed, 40km/h speed limits still needed to be put in urgently. “The signs are good but after a while people will forget about them, at least something that is flashing will get more attention for just 10 minutes and that’s what we need,” Mr Wichman (left) said. During the holidays, the city council installed four school signs at a cost of $1200. City council acting head of transport, Steffan Thomas, said they were installed to make people aware they are near a school and children are about. “The signs were installed to raise awareness of the presence of the school. Council did this in response to the principal’s

concerns about the level of traffic. Some motorists appeared not to be expecting schoolrelated travel activity,” Mr Thomas said. Mr Wichman said he didn’t know the signs were going in. He said he arrived at the school and saw them there. In a city council list of 18 schools prioritised for lower speed limits, St Anne’s doesn’t feature on the list. Mr Thomas said schools are prioritised based on a number

of factors relating to the road environment outside. “The list is reviewed regularly and the ranking of an individual school can change due to the school, and the surrounding environment, changing,” he said. The school is in a 50km/h speed limit and by making it a school zone, the speed of the road would be reduced to 40km/h during times when pupils are arriving and leaving. At any other time, the usual

speed limit applies. Traffic figures from April last year showed along Ferry Rd between Osborne St and Aldwins Rd an average of 24,600 vehicles per day used the road with 1810 during peak traffic from 8am to 9am and the same figures for the school peak between 3pm and 4pm. Mr Wichman said “anything is better than nothing” and he hopes this encourages the city council to put flashing speed signs in sooner rather than later.

In Brief SIGN OF THE KIWI The Sign of the Kiwi reopened yesterday after six years. The building at the top of Dyers Pass Rd was closed following the September 4, 2010, earthquake. It then suffered further damage on February 22, 2011. Before the building was closed, it operated as a cafe and shop. The cafe has reopened following $760,000 in strengthening work. SPARKS RD REOPENING Sparks Rd will reopen on Sunday following the installation of the Southeast Halswell Waste Water Scheme. FEEDBACK SOUGHT The public can now have their say on what they want in the Woolston Community Facility after consultation opened yesterday. The city council plans to build a facility on Ferry Rd after the community library was demolished in June 2011 due to extensive earthquake damage. The city council has set aside $1.6 million in its annual plan to replace the old library. Once public involvement in the new facility’s design is finished, the city council will create a concept design to formally present to the community for feedback on the project.

Maintaining trust and confidence This week’s opinion piece is written by Canterbury district police commander Superintendent John Price about modern day policing I am extremely proud of the police team who serve the people and make a difference to the community every minute of every day as our team keep the peace and ensure the public will be safe and feel safe.    In New Zealand our police have the implicit consent of the community. In order to do this we must be seen as policing with integrity and with accountability. Essentially we must have the trust and confidence of the community. Policing by consent follows the principles, ideas and ideals of Sir Robert Peel which define an ethical police organisation. These ‘Peelian Principles’ are as relevant today as they were in 1829 when they were established. Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with

the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public, and the public are the police.    We maintain the highest level of ‘full trust and confidence’ of any policing organisation in the world, at about 80 per cent. By comparison, some policing jurisdictions have trust and confidence levels lower that 10 per cent, demonstrating that those organisations are not widely seen as ethical and trustworthy. If you have travelled overseas you will have seen examples of policing organisations whose approach is to police with fear and only force. We place enormous importance on maintaining and fostering the trust and confidence of our communities and we work hard to ensure we maintain our core values and hold each other to account.

Youth group gets pool open

„„ By Caitlin Miles WHILE LINWOOD may not have a pool complex, an organisation focused on working with youth is coming to the rescue and running the local school pool over the summer. Youthtown is operating the community pool, located at Linwood Avenue School, for a second year. This year, Youthtown encouraged eight local teenagers to become volunteer lifeguards to help keep an eye on the children using the pool. The city council helped cover the costs of training the eight teenagers. Youthtown southern area manager, Amanda Murray, said it wanted to help give local kids some useful skills. “We think it’s really good to get the local teenagers involved and this way they can then work at other council-run pools with the training and skills they’ve learnt,” Ms Murray said. To help with costs of running the pool, the Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board granted the organisation $6500 to help cover lifeguard wages and running costs. “We’re training eight teenagers to help out. It gives the local

kids a chance to learn some new skills too,” Ms Murray said. Users pay $1 a day to be able to use the pool, which is open seven days a week from 11am until 6pm. She said it was great to be able to provide a pool for the

community over the summer months, since there isn’t one available in the area. But she said the community was vocal about its desire for a long-term solution. A $21.8 million pool is planned for the Linwood

Woolston area. A project team was assigned last year, with a design due in November this year and construction to start on the project in 2018. The school pool opened at the start of January and will close on Waitangi weekend.

In Brief WOODS MILL DEVELOPMENT Another bid is being made to restore the historic Woods Mill buildings in Addington. Loprinzi Properties is seeking $900,000 from the city council to restore the Wise St property. The city council will decide on Thursday if it will approve the money for restoration. Previous attempts by developers to restore the building have fallen through and the money has never been formerly handed over. The buildings – a four-storey and a two-storey structure – date back to 1886. They have been empty since the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The company wants to turn the buildings into a retail complex. It estimates the cost of the development to be $7.6 million. SKATE PARK PLANS Concepts for two skate parks planned for Halswell have been released. The concept designs incorporate many of the wishlist items that young people and locals requested. The plans for the Halswell Domain Skate and Recreation Park and Knights Stream Skate Park include a skate bowl, quarter pipes, seating and shaded areas. If the plans are approved, it is expected to take three months to complete each skate park. Consultation on the plans will be open until February 20.

Kate Russell

Proud mum awarded for her Kate Russell has been a leader in the not-for-profit health sector for 24 years. Georgia O’Connor-Harding spoke to her about working at the Canterbury Medical Research Foundation and what it was like to raise three children as a solo parent.

Congratulations on becoming and Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit. You must be very excited? I was thrilled when I heard. My first reaction was who the heck must have nominated me? But I still don’t know and possibly never will. I am very honoured. I didn’t know I was going to get nominated. There are so many different sectors in my professional life where it could have come from, but they said health and governance and that has narrowed it down. What made you stick to helping the not-for-profit organisations? I fell into the not-for-profit sector by accident. My first job was as a fundraising assistant for Presbyterian Support. I got it because it was a 20-hour week job and it suited the fact I had small children at the time. I was in that job for a couple

of weeks and I had what you would describe as a vocational empathy of thinking, oh my goodness, this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I was 30-years-old and aside from being a mother, I hadn’t figured out what I wanted to do careerwise. I had always done things to do with social justice. I had gone on the ‘no tour marches’ and was a junior member of human rights organisation, Amnesty International. Tell me about working at the Canterbury Medical Research Foundation? When I took this role, some of my colleagues at the national programme, Cystic Fibrosis New Zealand, were like isn’t that a step back because you are going into a regional role? But after the earthquakes, I very much had in my heart to do something in Canterbury. Medical research is something you don’t always get

immediate results. In the nearly three years I have been there, I can’t say there has been a new blockbuster drug. Rarely does medical research go ahead in a quantum leaps, it is these little baby steps that happen over a

number of years. Could give me a picture of the research you are doing at the moment? We just finished a study on the use of vitamin C and breast cancer. We are also funding a young

role in medical research How do you think our medical research compares to the rest of the world? We punch very well above our weight. What gets achieved here in research for the fraction of a cost is really quite astounding. In spite of the frustration we all naturally get with the health system and getting put on waiting lists and restricted medicines, we still have universal public health care here. When you look at the hideous situation people in the United States find themselves in, where they don’t have health insurance, we have a fabulous system here. We only pay $5 per item for medicine which may cost up to $150. Still some people complain about that. You often hear about there not being enough beds at Christchurch Hospital. For sure, Christchurch Hospital is an incredibly busy hospital. But the financial results and just the strategic results the CDHB gets in terms of the development of new services; they are just terrific and stack up very well compared to the rest of the district health boards around the country. I can tell you these places are populated by bloody good people who all have a very

But the most difficult time of my life was when I broke up with my first husband. I was a solo parent on my own for seven years with three children. For me, it got to

the stage where I was very poor. I wouldn’t say I had hit rock bottom, but I was very poor and I had to work very hard and make significant sacrifices for the well-being of my children. I was there for some time and I had to make a conscious decision to climb myself out of that. To not be dependent on welfare. How did you get through? The whole family had to make sacrifices for that to occur. There were a lot of times where I couldn’t go to the kids’ sports days. I couldn’t be the one to drop them off at school or look after them after school. I recognise my children paid the price for me putting a lot of evidence on the development of my career. I had a 12, eight and four-yearold. What do your children say about it now? They are very proud. From time to time, we have these conversations where I say I still carry some guilt about not being there because I had to work. I had to be the main bread-winner in the family. They are very pragmatic about it and say what you taught us is a really good work ethic. We understand why you did what you did.

Probably the one that started me on the road to financial recovery and career development was the one at CCS Disability Action where I was the regional fundraisng manager. That was where I felt like my skills were fully utilised and I was given a sufficient amount of authority. Have you found a new partner? We are coming up to our second year now and it is all very new. He lives in his house and I live in my house and we have a very nice time when we are together. But I am independent and decided I am not really cut out for living with another person. I am much too independent. So you are keeping the magic alive? Exactly, and my independence. I make my own money. If I want a diamond ring, I buy it, I don’t worry about someone else. I watched my mother model independence to me because my father died when I was 12. She had a very hard road to hoe and she was and still is an extremely hard-worker. And again, a very independent thinker, bright and an inspiring woman.

Locked toilets cause a stink for Don’t make arson easy community board member   FLAME FILES

„„ By Caitlin Miles A COMMUNITY board member says locking the public toilets in Linwood Park because of constant vandalism and graffiti is a waste of resources. The city council has closed the facility, and will only unlock it for sporting events. LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board member Alexandra Davids (above) said she thinks closing the toilets is a “waste of money and resources,” as the majority of visitors to the park cannot use them. The toilet block is located close to the playground at the Bonar Pl entrance to the park. The nearest alternative pubic toilets are across the park at Eastgate Shopping Centre on the corner of Linwood Ave and Buckleys Rd. City council acting head of parks Brent Smith said quick removal was the best way to deter taggers along with graffitiresistant paint. “Unfortunately, taggers at Linwood Park have not been

deterred and, therefore, we have had to close the toilet to the public,” Mr Smith said. Last year, there were 185 reports of vandalism to the toilet block and, in 2013, $7100 was spent on paint to cover graffiti and repaint the building.

However, Ms Davids felt that the local school or artists could paint a mural on the toilet block to help deter vandalism. “Getting local artists or local kids involved would be great to deter people from ruining it,” she said.

WE’RE IN a new year and the same old incidents keep on occurring. By this I mean kitchen fires and arsons.  An unattended cooking fire in Sockburn this week raised an interesting dilemma for landlords.  Most know that there is a new building law requirement that landlords provide smoke detectors in their properties.  In the case referred to, there weren’t any smoke alarms in a rental where the tenant went off to work forgetting about food cooking on the stove.  Smoke was seen and Fire Service troops attended. There wasn’t too much of a mess and our crew made sure there was a brand new 10-year smoke detector installed (free of charge by the way) before the occupant went back in. But what would be the result if the tenant had gone to bed after cooking rather than leaving for work? What if then the worst happened? How would the law treat the landlord?  It’s a good enough reason to make sure an alarm is there and that the installation is

recorded. Then it’s the tenant’s responsibility if the alarm is removed. Otherwise landlords, you could be in the gun! An arson fire in Addington on Wednesday morning was lit in cardboard stored under a canopy in the rear yard. Most of the damage was cosmetic but some light fittings and air conditioning units were destroyed.  It probably wouldn’t have happened if combustibles hadn’t been available.  Please make sure your skips, bins and cardboard cages are locked and away from your building.  Don’t make it easy!

DRAFTED: Francis de Vries was selected as the 29th overall pick by Vancouver Whitecaps FC in last week’s MLS draft.

De Vries headed to US football league „„ By Gordon Findlater FORMER CASHMERE High School footballer Francis de Vries is heading to Canada after being drafted by Vancouver Whitecaps FC. De Vries, 22, was the 29th selection in last week’s Major League Soccer draft. He has become sought after in North America after already plying his trade in three different countries. He will join his new club ahead of the MLS season which begins in early March. Last season Vancouver finished 16th in the 22-team competition.

The 1.87m defender grew up playing football under the guidance of Fred Simpson at Cashmere Technical, which at the time were known as Cashmere Wanderers before merging with Woolston Technical. De Vries also played for Cashmere High and was named junior player of the year during his time there. He also won the national youth league with Canterbury United in 2011. In 2012, de Vries moved to Switzerland to join FC Basel’s youth academy, where he helped the club win the Swiss under-18 championship. He then moved to the United States and spent

four years at St Francis University, Pennsylvania. During his stint at college, he started all 78 of his games, scoring 15 goals and recording six assists. His performances saw him twice named a NSCAA third team All-American, as well as two-time North-eastern Conference defender of the year. He was also a three-time first team All-North-eastern Conference. In between his collegiate career, de Vries played in the USL Premier Development League with the Michigan Bucks, helping the club to league championship wins in both 2014 and 2016.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Krill Oil No.1 Advanced Weight Management Support + for Good Health! GO SLIM GARCINIA GOLD is the latest in Natural Weight Management Support to hit the market. It contains three well researched herbal extracts in optimum amounts to support weight management as well as offer surprising benefits for good health. An extract of the purple rind of Mangosteen contains an amazing group of compounds called Xanthones. Xanthones may support weight loss by helping normalising a slow metabolism (common as we age), improving digestive function and nutrient absorption, acting as a powerful appetite suppressant by promoting synthesis of glycogen in the body (With adequate levels of glycogen the brain receives a signal to suppress the appetite), increasing energy and activity levels (but non stimulating) as well as supporting fat metabolism. Xanthones also offer amazing health support in other ways. They contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals as well as some of the most powerful antioxidant nutrients found in nature that may help slow the aging process, ward off degenerative diseases and physical and mental deterioration. East Indian Globe Thistle has been shown to increase the levels of the hormone adiponectin which encourages food to be burned as energy rather than stored as fat. When East Indian Globe Thistle is combined with Xanthones weight loss is potentiated as shown in an 8 week study of

100 people on a calorie controlled diet with exercise where half the participants took the combination of the two herbs. Weight loss benefits, including a reduction in hip and waist size were significantly increased in the 50 people using the combination of East Indian Globe Thistle and Xanthones compared to those on diet and exercise alone. The third ingredient Garcinia Cambogia is a source of hydroxycitric acid or HCA. HCA can help burn fat for energy, help stop the formation of fat from excess calories in the diet, while reducing the appetite as well as food cravings. It has become one of the most popular weight loss supplements for this reason. Garcinia Cambogia also increases your serotonin levels which can improve mood and sleep. One of the big problems today is we eat much more than we need. This excess eating has been shown to lead to serious health issues as well as a shorter life span. GO SLIM GARCINIA GOLD contains three powerful natural ingredients to support a healthy weight as well as the potential to support improved body function. Further information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help You!

All our body cell membranes are made up of phospholipids exactly the same phospholipids as available in Krill Oil. These phospholipids available in Krill are its big advantage over fish oil that is in a triglyceride form and that must be converted by our liver to phospholipid form to be able to have benefits to our cell membranes. This conversion of triglycerides to phospholipids is inefficient and a much larger dose of fish oil is needed for the same benefits as a much smaller dose of Krill Oil. Some research has shown Krill Oil to be 48 times more potent than fish oil. Another benefit of Krill Oil is it contains one of the most potent antioxidants known, Astaxanthin. Recent research shows Krill Oil can lower your risk for cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, obesity, Type-2 diabetes and may lessen a variety of brain and mental disorders including Autism and Dyslexia, Parkinson’s and some forms of Alzheimer’s disease. Krill Oil can help normalise high blood pressure by reducing inflammation of the blood vessels and improving blood quality. It is also highly effective at reducing high cholesterol levels, increasing HDL cholesterol, reducing triglycerides (a damaging blood fat), reducing C - reactive protein and reducing other damaging blood factors. It can also reduce dangerous fat levels in the liver and heart. Krill Oil is also a natural anti-inflammatory and can help reduce

pain, improve joint function and reduce symptoms of arthritis. The secret is therefore the phospholipid and Astaxanthin content rather than just the amount of Krill oil in the soft gel capsule. Some brands have very low levels of these two important compounds and may not even list them on the label. For the maximum nutritional benefit we are happy to help you choose a quality product with effective amounts of Phospholipids and Astaxanthin and at a realistic price.

House of Cards is especially renowned for its teaching and we have taught literally thousands of beginners as well as improvers, in Christchurch and around New Zealand.

Belly Dancing

Belly Dance With Kashmir Beginners Classes and Beyond Next 8-week beginner course:

7:00 -8:15pm Tuesdays, 14 February - 4 April from $90 (Early Bird prepaid) South Brighton Other classes available (see website)

www.bellyraqs.co.nz 382 0071 or 027 438 7277

Show your body a little love with some fun, gentle exercise starting this Valentine’s Day. Kashmir’s beginner belly dance class runs for eight weeks and explores not only the movement of belly dance but also a little of the background. You can watch some of the top belly dancers on video, begin to get a feel for the music, and get a glimpse into a different culture all while learning about how your own body can move to express the music as a belly dancer. Belly dance is the dance of celebration and entertainment in many Middle Eastern countries. Everyone does it (men, women,

and children). It is kind to the body with no extreme flexibility required and, unlike most folkdances, no jumping. It is based around movement of the torso rather than footwork. Although travelling and weight transitions are required for stage work, as a beginner you will learn mainly to move your hips and shoulders (“belly” dance is a misnomer). Then you can start to put movements together into phrases, add “layering” (two or more things at once), and sharpen your ability to isolate. More information: www.bellyraqs.co.nz

If you like to dance, want a social life with a friendly bunch of people, then Line Dancing could be just what you are looking for. Scientists theorize that dancing has a triple benefit for the brain, it increases blood flow, reduces stress and keeps that vital grey matter in shape. Dancing also combines physical, mental and social activity and is a whole lot of fun too. Laughing is good for you because it increases our ability to think positively and we even cater for people who think they have two left feet. You can have all these benefits plus meeting new friends by

joining “Cathedral City Line Dancers”. See our ad on this page or phone Mary on 389 8809 or 021 216 3382

So what can you do to ward off pain and stiffness and boost your energy and alertness? 10 simple stretching exercises at your desk that will release tension from head to toe. They take only a few minutes. Set the alarm on your cell phone or computer to go off every hour to remind you it’s time to get up and stretch. Just stand up and sit down - no hands If you stand up and sit down (over and over) without using your hands it can be a challenge, do it while you’re on the phone; no one will know. Shrug your shoulders - to release the neck and shoulders Inhale deeply and shrug your shoulders, lifting them high up to your ears. Hold. Release and drop. Repeat three times. Loosen the hands with air circles Clench both fists, stretching both hands

out in front of you. Make circles in the air, first in one direction, to the count of ten. Then reverse the circles. Shake out the hands. Point your fingers - good for hands, wrist, and forearms

Stretch your left hand out in front of you, pointing fingers toward the floor. Use your right hand to increase the stretch, pushing your fingers down and toward the body. Be gentle do the same with the other hand. Now stretch your left hand out straight in front, wrist bent, with fingers pointing skyward. Use your right hand to increase the stretch, pulling the fingers back toward your body. Do the same on the other side. Release the upper body with a torso twist Inhale and as you exhale, turn to the right and grab the back of your chair with your right hand, and grab the arm of the chair with your left. With eyes level, use your grasp on the chair to help twist your torso around as far to the back of the room as possible. Hold the twist and let your eyes continue the stretch see how far around the room you can peer. Slowly come back to facing forward. Repeat on the other side. Do leg extensions Grab the seat of your chair to brace yourself

and extend your legs straight out in front of you so they are parallel to the floor.Flex and point your toes five times. Release. Repeat. Stretch your back with a “big hug” Hug your body, placing the right hand on your left shoulder and the left hand on your right shoulder. Breathe in and out, releasing the area between your shoulder blades. Cross your arms - for the shoulders and upper back Extend one arm out straight in front of you. With the other hand, grab the elbow of the outstretched arm and pull it across your chest, stretching your shoulder and upper back muscles. Hold. Release. Stretch out the other arm in front of you - repeat. Stretch your back and shoulders with a “leg hug” Sit on the edge of your chair (if it has wheels, wedge the chair against the desk or

wall to make sure it does not roll). Put your feet together, flat on the floor. Lean over, chest to knees, letting your arms dangle loosely to the floor. Release your neck. Now bring your hands behind your legs, right hand grasping left wrist, forearm (or elbow if you can reach that far), left hand grasping the right. Feel the stretch in your back, shoulders and neck. Hold. Release your hands to the floor again. Repeat three times or as often as it feels good. Look up to release upper body Sit up tall in your chair, or stand up. Stretch your arms overhead and interlock your fingers. Turn the palms to the ceiling as you lift your chin up, tilt your head back, and gaze up at the ceiling, too. Inhale, exhale, release.
