Noeline flying high at 100

Friday 12-20

By Julia Czerwonatis

Today marks a milestone for Noeline Ritson who is celebrating her 100th birthday. Noeline’s immediate family and friends from as far as Australia, England, and Singapore have come to clink the glasses with the Karori resident. “I just can’t believe this has happened,” Noeline says. “I don’t really feel like it’s been 100 years.” Noeline was born in Kingsland, Auckland, as one of three children of Jean and Robert McLeod. Continued on page 2. Phillip Bolton, Wellington RSA treasurer (right), and Bruce Johnston, Karori RSA president (left), acknowledge Noeline’s 100th birthday. They says she is known as an independent, impatient and explicably nice person amongst other RSA members. PHOTO: Julia Czerwonatis

Former Air Force nurse turns 100 Continued from page 1. “Mum tells us she was a shy child, not liking birthday parties even in her childhood,” Noeline’s daughter, Beverley Jackson, says. “She had a heart condition and was bedridden for some time, missing school until it was realised it made no difference.” Dreaming of becoming a nurse one day, Noeline became a St John’s cadet aged 12. Her parents didn’t approve of their daughter’s ambitions. Despite Jean and Robert’s objection, Noeline joined the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) when the war broke out. She was assigned to the medical section and stationed in a small hospital in Auckland where she served from 1942-45. “I still remember my service number, 2475. It’s something you’ll never forget,” Noeline says. During her time with the Air Force, Noeline met her husband Keith who also worked in the medical unit and later became a physiotherapist.

Construction of the Johnsonville Community Hub will begin in January 2018. The community hub project will happen in three stages and is scheduled to be complete by December 2019. Wellington City Council deputy mayor Jill Day says she is excited to break ground on this project in January. “The new facilities will sit at the heart of Johnsonville and revitalise the area for youth, families and adults,” Jill says. The tender for the build was won by Southbase Construction Limited, which will do all three stages, including landscaping around the hub.

from my mum, to care for others.” Noeline says she didn’t have a secret for staying young; “It

must be in my genes.” The one thing that she’ll miss turning 100 is her car, as she is giving up driving as of today.

The family of five moved to Firth Terrace in Karori where Noeline and Keith enjoyed a full social life with neighbours, family friends, lodge members and work colleagues. “We kids loved raiding the fridge the following morning for the leftovers- crayfish and meringues come to mind,” Beverley remembers. “In 1970, dad died at the age of 49, leaving Noeline to forge a life of independence well before women’s liberation.” Today, Noeline has three children, nine grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren – all of whom always receive birthday cards and knitted garments from Noeline. Her garden produce keeps her going, and she has maintained her physical health very well, even dancing the Highland fling in Scottish tradition. “She is always interested in others and lends a hand to those in need – cartons of nourishing soup delivered, and even collecting for RSA at 99,” Beverley says. “That’s what I have learnt

“Johnsonville and the Northern Suburbs are experiencing immense population growth at the moment and we are expecting that to continue. The new hub will ensure these important community facilities are fit-for-purpose for years to come,” she says. The new library will be larger than the existing facility on Broderick Road, offering a flexible, modern space, complemented by an on-site cafe for visitors. It will be an addition to the area and already established facilities – Keith Spry Pool and Johnsonville Community Centre.

Special parking zones will be set up in surrounding streets during the construction period. Response to the announcement on Facebook was positive but still focused on the longawaited development of the Johnsonville Shopping Centre. Local resident Suzanne Carty wrote: “Now’s the time for Stride Property [the current owners of the shopping centre] to sell the air space above Johnsonville mall for apartments — perfectly placed for rail, library, shops...What do you think, Stride? It’s in your court.” Council granted Stride Property Ltd and Diversified NZ

Property Trust a resource consent to redevelop Johnsonville Shopping Centre in January this year. However, nothing has happened as yet. The consent allows for the construction and redevelopment including a 26,000m2 development including retail, cinema and commercial activities as well as the addition of 900 car parking spaces.  Do you think the focus should be on the community hub or the shopping centre? What is actually needed in your point of view? Let us know by emailing herald@wsn.co.nz.

inbrief news

Wellingtonians feeling safe in 2017 Wellingtonians are reporting feeling safer after dark in 2017, compared with the year before, according to the annual Residents Monitoring Survey. Eighty-one per cent of Wellingtonians report feeling safer in the city centre after dark – an increase of eight per cent from 2016. Meanwhile, the percentage of Wellingtonians who say they feel safer in their neighbour-

hoods has also increased from 86 per cent to 90 per cent. Wellington Mayor Justin Lester says feeling safe is an important part of building a liveable city. “Council has been working hard for the past year to exceed expectations and make the city a welcoming and open place for everyone around the clock. Safety is a big part of this,” Justin says.

“As a council, we have been working with the community to identify what they need to feel safe in their own city and I am delighted with the way the results are tracking at the end of the first year of the new triennium,” he says. The Wellington Mayor points to night-time safety initiatives such as replacing all street lights with LED lights as one of the contributing factors.

The survey shows there has been an increase in satisfaction with street lighting in suburban areas, from 54 per cent in 2016 to 60 per cent in this year. The survey also shows a significantly lower percentage of respondents are concerned about city and neighbourhood features that make people unsafe, such as graffiti and threatening people, compared to 2016.

A message to the readers

Clean, cook, and chill The Ministry for Primary Industries wants to stop consumers from getting Campylobacter food poisoning at home by advising them to do three simple things: clean, cook, chill. “Campylobacter bacteria naturally occur in the gut of animals and birds, especially chickens, and you can get food poisoning from it if good food safety practices aren’t followed in the home,” says Roger Cook, MPI’s manager for Food Risk Assessment. “To help families avoid getting sick during the summer months, we want everyone’s mantra in the kitchen to be the three C’s: clean, cook, chill.”

NYE at Frank Kitts Park Come down to Whairepo Lagoon at Frank Kitts Park on December 31, and bring in the New Year with great music, food and fireworks. The Julie Lamb band will be kicking off the night with great music until 10pm. Orchestra Wellington will have the crowd dancing, chatting and swaying with ‘A Night of Rock’ all until midnight when the blast of fireworks will go off around the lagoon. There will also be a special kids’ countdown at 9pm with some fireworks. Food trucks will be close by in Odlins Plaza to ensure hunger is kept at bay.

After 32 years at Lambton Quay, the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) is relocating. Over 1000 staff from six separate Wellington locations will begin the move in January 2018 to St Paul’s building, at 45 Pipitea Street. The relocation will not disrupt the DIA’s core frontline services. Final costs will be known when the project is completed early in the New Year. The project is forecasted to come in under budget, which was set at $30.1 million. DIA staff are expected to have completed relocation by the end of January.

inbrief news First editions 2018 Wellington Suburban Newspapers will be up and running again in the new year. The first issue for the Independent Herald in 2018 will be January 10, while the first 2018 issue for the Cook Strait News will be on January 11.

Don’t hit the road, motorcyclists told ACC wants motorcyclists to get home safely by riding within their capabilities, and to the conditions. Last summer holidays ACC had 152 claims from motorcycle crashes – three of them fatal. ACC’s Motorcycle Safety manager Dave Keilty says crash statistics show motorbike riders are 21 times more likely to be killed or seriously injured than motorists driving a car. “The actions of the rider either wholly or partly contribute to 62 per cent of all motorcycle crashes,” says Dave. “We want people to enjoy the road, not hit the road.”

The year before was exceptional in its number of shocks and surprises, but 2017 had its fair share as well. We have chosen five of the most memorable events to shape the year. 1. The rise of Jacinda Ardern

She was still only 36 when she became Labour’s deputy leader in March following her win in the Mt Albert by-election. With Labour’s poll ratings in the doldrums under Andrew Little’s leadership, the party brought her to the helm at the start of August, just six weeks before an election most pundits thought National would win comfortably. While National did win the most votes, the “Jacinda effect” ensured Labour’s share was high enough to entice NZ First into a three-way coalition with the Greens, thus making Jacinda Ardern New Zealand’s youngest Prime Minister in more than 150 years and the youngest female head of government of any country. 2. British Lions draw their series with the All Blacks

While Warren Gatland’s men were expected to be tough, history shows the All Blacks have always been the dominant team when it comes to these once-in12-year tours.

The top five unexpected moments of 2017 So when the Lions managed to pip the home team 24-21 in the second test, thanks in part to the red-carding of Sonny Bill Williams, the unthinkable became possible. As it transpired, the unthinkable didn’t quite happen in the third test, but it was highly improbable all the same – a draw. That meant Kieran Read had to awkwardly share the spoils with a jubilant Sam Warburton. 3. Hollywood’s sick underbelly exposed

It began with the retweeting of a hashtag called #metoo by actress Alyssa Milano, who was encouraged to share her story of sexual assault and harassment at the hands of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. The hashtag soon went viral as dozens of women came forward of similar claims against Weinstein, with others also sharing their own stories of abuse. Weinstein’s behaviour was an open secret that had finally been exposed for what it was, leading to his expulsion from Hollywood

and criminal investigations. Yet other celebrities became implicated for sexual misconduct, including actor Kevin Spacey and director James Toback. The snowballing of allegations and their impact became known as the “Weinstein effect”. 4. Robert Mugabe forced to resign

The former president of Zimbabwe had been comfortably re-elected, albeit under strong suspicion of vote-rigging, at every poll throughout his 37-year reign since independence. But while it began benignly enough, Mugabe oversaw an economy that had collapsed to the point whereby inflation was more than 100,000 percent and unemployment was as high as 80 percent, while he and his cronies lived in the lap of luxury. Eventually the military lost patience with him when he planned to have his wife “Gucci” Grace Mugabe succeed him upon his death. Following a protracted “coup that was not a coup”, the 93-year-

old finally stepped down, though will remain immune to any prosecution for his litany of alleged crimes while in office. 5. Roy Moore fails to win Alabama

This event was significant in that the US state of Alabama had not elected a Democrat since 1992 and being the heart of the conservative Bible belt meant the chance of it happening any time soon under normal circumstances was about as likely as a space alien arriving on Earth. But these weren’t normal circumstances – the Republican nominee had refused to drop out of the senatorial race despite a string of sexual assault allegations levelled against him and his backing by the deeply unpopular President Donald Trump did not help. The election result on December 12 was very tight, but it nonetheless went to Democratic nominee Doug Jones in a surprise upset that seemed to also reflect public disenchantment with Trump himself.

THE PRESERVATION OF HEALTH IS EASIER THAN THE CURE OF THE DISEASE

Summer is a great time of year when we can all really enjoy the sun and the time spent outdoors. However if we are not careful the sun can be harmful and the ultraviolet radiation can burn the skin, age it prematurely damage our eyes and cause skin cancer. Levels of skin cancer in New Zealand are among the highest in the world and we all need to protect our skin when we are exposed to the sun. Skin cancer can affect people with fair skin as well as those with darker skin. People who have had a skin cancer before, have an increased risk of developing other skin cancers and those people with a family history of skin cancer also have increased risk of getting skin cancer. Being sunburnt often and being severely sunburnt can increase your risks of getting skin cancer, but the majority of skin cancer can be prevented by sun protection. Skin cancers can be detected early by regular self skin examination that you can do and also skin checks by a trained health practitioner. Look out for any new growths, changes in size and shape or if you are at all concerned, then get it checked out by a health professional without delay. There are a number of things that we can do for sun safety and skin protection when we go out into the sun. Slip slop, slap and wrap reminds us to slip on a long sleeved shirt, trousers or skirt or slip into the shade, slop on plenty of broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF30, slap on a wide brimmed hat or cap with flaps and wrap on those sunglasses to protect your eyes.

The time of day that we are out in the sun makes a big difference to the amount of UV exposure we get as well. Try and spend time in the sun in the early morning or later in the afternoon when the UV radiation levels are lower. The UV index lets you know the UV exposure so it helps you to avoid harmful exposure to UV radiation and can be found at the following sites: https://www.sunsmart.org.nz/sun-protection-alert https://www.niwa.co.nz/our-services/ online-services/uv-and-ozone/forecasts and https://www.niwa.co.nz/node/111461 If you need to be out in the sun when the UVI is 3 and higher then do practice being sun smart and use all the SunSmart steps. There are many different sunscreens that are available to be purchased from your pharmacy and it can be difficult to know what to choose. Options available include lotions and aerosols and they all need to be applied as instructed to get sun protection. Broadspectrum sunscreens are active against both UVA and UVB radiation and it is recommended to use these as well as sunscreens that are at least SPF30. Talk to your Self Care pharmacist for a recommendation that’s going to be right for you, especially if you have sensitive skin. How much sunscreen do I need to use? Self Care Pharmacists recommend at least one teaspoon for each arm and leg and half a teaspoon for your face, nose, ears and neck. More people get sunburned on their face and neck than any other part of the body, so apply well in these areas and don’t forget

the ears! Apply sunscreen 15 to 20 minutes before going outdoors and re-apply often (every 2 hours). This needs to be done even if it isn’t sunny, as the sunscreen gets worn off, or rubbed off and comes off after swimming. Look after your sunscreens. Just like our skin, sunscreens ‘age’ in the sun and heat, and their UV-protecting properties can be destroyed. So don’t leave them in the sun, or in the car’s glove box for too long. Also, don’t keep them past their ‘use by’ dates as they do lose their effectiveness. Sometimes you might be prescribed medication that can cause you to be more sensitive to the sun than you usually would be. This photosensitivity can result in intense sunburn with redness, pain and skin peeling. Photosensitivity does depend on the dose of the drug as well as the amount of sun exposure, so if these are at a minimum then the photosensitivity may not occur. However, if the photosensitivity does occur and is severe it may be necessary to stop or change the drug. Drugs that can cause photosensitivity reactions include some common antibiotics, such as tetracycline, doxycycline, some diuretics, and some anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen and diclofenac Talk to your Self Care pharmacist to find out more information on these drugs which you may have been prescribed. They can also give you a Self Care fact card on Sun Safety and Skin Cancer to help you be SunSmart and enjoy the sun safely.

Frank Hsu, owner of Frank’s on The Terrace – and now Newtown. PHOTO: Dom Thomas By Dan Whitfield

Frank Hsu and his team are committed to offering quality coffee in Wellington with the opening of a second café in Newtown. Located on the intersection of Adelaide Road and Riddiford Street, Frank’s Newtown is humming along. The Wellington barista says Newtown is a great neighbour-

hood and people love what they were doing there. The café opened on November 18 and is a similar set up to the one on The Terrace. It’s a place people can come and enjoy good coffee, he says. Earlier this year, Frank competed at the New Zealand Barista Championships for his third time– coming first in Wellington and third in New Zealand.

“The barista champs helped us establish a point of difference in our brand and has allowed us to speak up in the industry,” Frank says. “My passion is showcasing good coffee. People trust us and know we believe in our product.” Though serving a good coffee is one thing, Frank explains it is also about bringing what’s happening in the coffee world

to the community. Frank says people love the café and have commented on how beautiful the space is. “People have been talking about us. They are excited we’re in the neighbourhood.” Frank’s is located on The Terrace and in Newtown. Coffee served at Frank’s is supplied by Red Rabbit Coffee Co – providing a clean yet distinct coffee.

Feijoas promise new anti-fungal treatments As well as tasting great, the humble feijoa may also offer new treatments for life-threatening fungal infections according to a Victoria University researcher. Mona Mokhtari graduated with a PhD in Biomedical Science a couple of weeks ago, after conducting research into the antifungal properties of one of New Zealand’s favourite fruits. Researchers have been interested in the feijoa’s antibacterial and anti-cancer potential for some time but Mona’s research is one of only a handful of studies into its antifungal properties. “Fungal infections cause one million deaths per year worldwide—more than breast cancer or tuberculosis—and that’s even with the availability of antifungal drugs,” Mona says. “The problem is many of the anti-fungal drugs doctors have relied on for years are becoming less and less effective as these infections build up antifungal resistance. That’s why we need to expand the range of antifungal drugs doctors have at their disposal. “I became interested in feijoas, partly because New Zealand is so

passionate about them, but also because they’re a source of natural products. Research has shown that drugs based on naturally occurring compounds often produce fewer side effects in patients and can be taken in lower doses than synthetic drugs. “I worked with Foretaste Feijoa Fruit in the South Island to identify and test a particular compound in feijoas. I found that it is about 50 times more effective as an antifungal than as an antibacterial. That makes the compound very promising as the basis for a drug that kills fungal cells without hurting human cells or the beneficial bacteria in the guts of humans.” Mona says a lot more work needs to be done before a drug can be developed and made available to doctors. For the time being, she is starting a new project looking at the anti-cancer and anti-diabetic properties of feijoas. “Now that the compound has been identified and once the research has been published, other researchers have a head start on turning this compound into something you might see in pharmacies in years ahead,” Mona says.

Christmas farewell for retiring Newtown jewellers By Jamie Adams

Long-standing Newtown retail business Amba Jewellers opened its doors for the last time on Christmas Eve with the husband-and-wife owners Pritilal and Tara Bhindi now retired. “We don’t usually open on Sundays - it’s the one exception, being our last day,” Pritilal says. Pritilal, 72, and Tara, 67, understand that the closure is sad news for all their loyal customers, but after 17 years of selling watches, rings and necklaces they say the time is right. “Customers have been coming in asking why we are going. It’s simply time to move on.” Selling jewellery is not just a family trait - “it runs in our blood”, Pritilal says. “We have family records that show our ancestors in India were jewellers 500 years ago.” Indeed the couple sold jewellery in their country of origin Fiji, before they immigrated to New Zealand in 1988.

They set up shop at 185 Riddiford Street in November 2000 and have always appreciated serving the local people. “We will miss customers. We enjoyed having them here,” Pritilal says. “We have had lots of happy experiences and have come to meet so many people,” Tara adds. The sentiment is reciprocated; one customer, who was in store having her custom-made broken watch repaired when the Cook Strait News visited, says she relied on the Bhindis’ expertise to have it fixed and tied back around her neck. Tara notes that customers came from many of the surrounding suburbs, such was its reputation for great service. Amba Jewellers’ closure means Lloyd Kelly is the only remaining retailer in Newtown for now. The couple could not confirm who would take over the shop but with their daughter Rina having helped with operation in recent years they were hopeful the family tradition would continue in the future.
