Floodgates open By JANINE BAALBERGEN As rain continued to pelt down on the Ruahine Ranges, large volumes of water gathered in streams feeding the Manawatū River during Tuesday and Tuesday night. That made it necessary for the Horizons Regional Council to open the floodgates at the Moutoa Spillway, early on Wednesday morning. They remained open until early Thursday morning. By early Wednesday morning the water levels in Manawatū River had risen dramatically. At 8am on Wednesday the water sat at 2.4m above its normal level at the Spillway. By midday the flood waters had reached the temporary bridge over the Manawatū River at Foxton, flooding the work site below the Whirokino Trestle, situated next to it. Plenty of debris came down with the flood waters, including many logs, clogging the river flow at the temporary river bridge. Horizons Regional Council’s group manager river management Ramon Strong said on Wednesday morning that the Manawatū River peaked at 5.1m. Council staff monitored the flood during the days and night following as it worked its way down the main stem of the Manawatū and had crews at the gates until the Spillway was closed on Thursday morning. Water levels began to drop slightly, late on Wednesday. SH56 near Opiki in the Manawatū was closed overnight on Wednesday due to flooding.

Debris build-up at the temporary bridge over the Manwatū River at Foxton. “The Moutoa floodgates were closed early on Thursday morning after the Manawatū River levels dropped significantly overnight. Staff remained at the Spillway until then,” said Mr Strong. “This is to ensure the gates have closed properly and that everything is as it should be. There were no other issues overnight and our staff will be out assessing river systems for the next few days. “We will be checking to see how the channels and flood

defences held up as well as looking to identify and prioritise any necessary repairs. Following that we hope to return to business as usual and would like to thank those in the community who have been staying tuned to updates and taking any necessary action.” Mr Strong said the past few days have also been a reminder of the importance of keeping grazing stock off stopbanks to ensure they are best able to ■ Continued Page 3

‘Miracle’ heart precious gift of life By ASHLEIGH COLLIS A Foxton woman’s heart condition left her with two months to live, but a “miracle” arrived just in time. Kerry Hughes suffered from the same genetic heart condition that took her mother at age 43. Hughes is married with three adult daughters, two of whom also suffer from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which results in a thickening of the heart muscle wall. Symptoms vary from none to feeling tired, swollen leg, shortness of breath, chest pain, fainting, and in severe cases, heart failure, irregular heartbeat, and sudden cardiac death. At age 59, Hughes could barely walk and was told she had two months left to live. She was on the heart transplant waiting list, but there was difficulty in finding a heart suitable for her. As her health deteriorated, Hughes waited. After three months on the list, she got the call. With less than six hours on the clock for the operation, Hughes jumped on the first flight to Auckland, but nothing had prepared her for the moment reality hit, that this new heart was a gift given by a grieving family. “I was fortunate . . . I’m so grateful to my donor and their family because without them I wouldn’t be here now,” Hughes said. “A heart is one of the most

I woke up and couldn’t feel my heart beating.

KERRY Hughes suffered from the same genetic heart condition until she had a transplant. precious gifts you could receive or give.” “ I was going to Auckland with the prospect of a new life, but at the same time, there was a family who was going through the worst time of their lives, having to make the decision [to switch off life support and donate their loved one’s organs],” she said. A donor must be on life support and brain dead to be eligible to donate, meaning their family is left with the decision.

“I was thinking about that but also with some excitement, it was possible I might have more life than a few weeks ahead of me.” The moment she woke from surgery she knew life had changed. Before the transplant, she was constantly aware of her thickened heart beating. “I could hear it in my ear and feel it in my neck and chest all the time.” When Hughes woke up from

surgery, her new heart was silent, healthy and normal. After 12 days in ICU and another 12 days in a hospital ward, her transplant was a success, but the journey had only just begun. “The first time in physio I managed one minute on the treadmill . . . I thought I was going to die I was just so worn out,” she said. Six months on, and after intensive rehabilitation, Hughes is feeling better than ever and

even tackled the two hour Manawatu Gorge Loop walk. “I’ve not felt this well at any time in my adult life, and it is so refreshing . . . it makes life exciting.” She still takes every precaution to look after her new heart and will take anti-rejection drugs for the rest of her life. It’s something she says is a small price to pay. “To me, it’s nothing short of a miracle, it’s given me a life,” she says.

Rural readers of the Horowhenua Chronicle have recently discovered that a change in NZ Post policy now means that a “no junk mail” sticker on their letterbox means they no longer get their community newspaper delivered. People believed that community newspapers were exempt from the no junk mail rule. “Non-subscription newspapers (community newspapers) for rural customers are treated as unaddressed mail much the same way we handle advertising mail, newsletters, and notifications,” NZ Post says. “Typically this is mail which contains no address details, and for some time now we have charged less for this type of mail to be processed and delivered through our network. “If a rural customer puts “no circulars” or “no junk mail” on their letterbox, then we do not deliver unaddressed mail to them. “We acknowledge that our rural contractors, and the services they provide, are an important part of rural communities. “We are sorry to hear that some customers have recently raised concerns about not receiving the Horowhenua Chronicle. “We recommend that if customers are wanting to have specific unaddressed publications delivered, that they contact the publisher or sender to arrange a subscription, or an addressed copy of the publication with their correct postal address,” says NZ Post. Of course The Horowhenua Chronicle is distributed free, so no subscription is needed. But if you wondered why you, your friends, or family members who have an RD address are not getting your local read any longer, you now know why.

Floodgates open as water rises

perform their function as an essential flood protection asset. The reminder applies to both farmers and owners of lifestyle blocks as wetter soil conditions, combined with heavy animals or smaller animals that dig, can weaken the region’s stopbanks. “While stopbanks can be grazed by cattle less than 18 months in age when the ground is firm in summer, grazing with cattle is not permitted under any circumstances between June 15 and September 15. “As wet weather sets in it’s really important stopbanks maintain enough grass to prevent scouring in a flood event like we’ve had this week. Farmers and landowners know this and in most cases are very cooperative,” said Mr Strong. “We really appreciate the effort many farmers put in to control stock damage by grazing during the year. However, it is the time of year again where stock needs to be grazed elsewhere to avoid any damage.” Mr Strong said it is a statutory offence to damage the stopbanks and landowners can be held liable to pay for any resulting repairs. “The stopbanks not only protect property and production worth millions of dollars, but they also ensure the safety of many in our community. Any chain is only as strong as its weakest link and all it takes is one breached section of stopbank to flood hundreds of hectares of farmland,” he said. Stopbanks are a primary flood protection tool throughout the region. Horizons manages and maintains almost 490km of stopbanks, protecting over 46,000 hectares of land. A copy of the stopbank grazing guidelines pamphlet is available online at www.horizons.govt.nz with hard copies available on request.

Levin postie delivers his last letter By JANINE BAALBERGEN

l

Levin postie Brent Hawkey is going to enjoy other outdoor pursuits after almost 41 years in the job.

Support Your Local

Levin postman Brent Hawkey delivered his last letter yesterday. After almost 41 years on the bike racing around Levin he has handed in his gear and is looking forward to different outdoor pursuits. Those will still include bicycles, though. “I love the outdoors. My wife and I do a lot of tramping and have road bikes as well as mountain bikes. We will do that a lot more from now on,” Brent said. He said he started sorting and delivering mail in September 1977. He spent his entire postie career in Levin and has delivered mail everywhere on his bike. Funny episodes he fondly remembers include a story about a whistle. “Long ago we used to blow a whistle to let people know we had arrived in their street. One day a lady complained I was blowing too softly. She couldn’t hear me. So, next day I put some effort into it. Would you believe she filed a complaint about my whistle blowing being too loud?” Encounters with dogs are part and parcel of a postie’s life but on Lindsay Rd Brent one day encountered a herd of cows. “They were grazing along the road. I thought I’d go past them slowly and they decided to chase me for a bit.” A meeting with a dog resulted in the dog fleeing — straight into a parked car. A postie is out in all weather. “Rain, hail, snow, even strong wind,” he said. Brent started work building caravans after he left high school, doing that for six years. “I knew someone who was a postie and when the job came up I applied for it. I’m three months short of 41 years in the job.” From today he and his wife will enjoy retirement and be seen up tramping trails and on bikes — albeit without mail — around town. His colleagues shouted morning tea on his last day.

Crazy adventurer speaks to youth Calling all young people! Do you want to be inspired to live an awesome life and kick your mental health issues to the kerb? Record-holding adventurer, author and motivational speaker Jimi Hunt is coming to Horowhenua on Monday night to speak about how his crazy adventures have helped his own mental health. Hunt’s list of accolades is impressive; he is a bestselling author, Guinness World Record holder, two time TEDx speaker, finalist for the 2014 New Zealander of the Year and New Zealand Innovator of the Year, 2014 Hubbards “Amazing Hero” grant recipient and a Waikato University scholarship recipient. In 2015 Hunt created a project to build a 2000ft waterslide, the world’s longest, in order to bring attention to the need to talk about depression. He has also travelled the length of the Waikato River on an eight-dollar inflatable Lilo, written two books and co-founded a charity called “Live More Awesome.’ “My passion is encouraging and inspiring everyone to take control and increase their mental health,” Hunt said. His Horowhenua appearance is part of a wider programme on mental health awareness, called Tu Whita Te Hopo, said Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-pō community development adviser Sophie Parrant.

services in Levin area “The response from the community has been incredible,” said Arohanui Hospice CE Clare Randall about Levin’s hospice facilities. She was in town to celebrate one year of hospice services in Levin. The celebrations last Tuesday were attended by board members, staff and volunteers both from Palmerston North and

Levin, as well as medical staff who offer services at the Levin hospice. “A Levin location is much more convenient for many of our clients and the facility is very well used on a daily basis. Nurses and doctors do sessions as well as social workers, saving our clients a lot of time and effort,” said Ms Randall. “I have been amazed at the number of people who

come in and want to help and donate time or goods.” Locals are looking after the gardens and run the Creative Living programme, and business also lends a hand. One firm has volunteered to spray the roof so lichen won’t grow on it. Local businesses have contributed to costs of lighting and the heating in the hospice.

HEADS UP WITH WAIOPEHU COLLEGE

Students help make kids mobile By AYLA ROWAN Rotary Interact is an internationally established group that encourages students aged 12-18 to work together and make a difference both locally and globally. The club gives young people the chance to discover the power of service above self, and it is a wonderful way of developing leadership skills. The main purpose of the Waiopehu club is to help others by raising awareness and addressing local issues, and our committed group of around 30 secondary students are dedicated to being actively engaged in our community through a variety of projects we plan on carrying out. The group provides opportunities that might not otherwise be available for local children and members of our wider community. Currently we are working on two exciting projects: Electric vehicles for children with impaired mobility, and Buddy Benches. The organisation Go Baby Go aims to provide children with impaired mobility electric ride-in toy cars to give them mobility and independence via mobile play. Rotary Interact is working with them to provide this service in the Horowhenua region for the first time. Buddy benches are benches given to primary schools, where students are able to make new connections with other children if isolated during school breaks. The Rotary Interact group has organised many fundraising events to continue with these projects, our most recent being a movie showing of Solo: A Star Wars Story for Go Baby Go, which raised $650. The Levin Rotary

Waiopehu College students’ Rotary Interact Club is helping bring electric vehicles to Horowhenua designed to help children with impaired mobility. Club has kindly offered to match Interact dollar for dollar for this project and our collective aim is to provide two toy cars to children in the local area. We also have other fundraising events planned to help meet this goal. The Buddy Benches are also well under way, with the first bench assembled and ready for painting. The Rotary Interact group would like to thank Noel Gore from the Trellis Centre for the time he has given up to assist us as well as our own tireless Ant Kennedy. Students from the Interact club are attending Koputaroa school on Friday to work collaboratively on art designs with the students and teachers. On an international scale, our club is considering the opportunity to send two of our members to Ambrym Island, Vanuatu.

COMMUNITY FONO

Students will spend a week educating and helping the local residents, as well as immersing themselves in the local culture. This is an incredible chance to continue Rotary’s work overseas. The Waiopehu Rotary Interact Club would like to thank all those who have helped us along the way, and who continue to help us on our journey, and in particular we would like to extend our special thanks to the members of Levin Rotary Club for their sponsorship, guidance and support. If you know of a child between the ages of 2-4 with impaired mobility who would benefit from future fundraising for a Go Baby Go vehicle, please contact Dan Hutchinson via danielhut@waiopehu.ac.nz .

ARK SHADES are all the rage at the moment — but it’s essential to use them appropriately. Otherwise your home will look more like a dungeon than a sophisticated space for entertaining friends and family.

From shades like Resene Bastille and Resene Diesel, there are plenty of moody shades that can totally revamp your kitchen. However, it’s vital that these deep hues are

Horizontal stripes: Horizontal black or slate stripes look stunning in the kitchen, and are a smart way to embrace bold shades without going over the top.

Using dark hues in your kitchen continued from P9 Resene Fuscous Grey, for instance. You could add hanging lamps with black chains and paintings in black frames to play up this dramatic feel as well. By incorporating white too, you’ll be primed to enjoy a kitchen that’s smart, without feeling closed in. Hanging globe lights: Globe lights are a fantastic solution when you want to embrace black, navy or deep grey in your kitchen’s interior design, but are worried about how bright the space will seem. Opt for globe lights that have a warm, yellow glow to them, rather than emitting a

stark, white light. This will ensure the area is lit up in an inviting manner, rather than seeming austere. You can then play around with dark shades, whether on the floors, a feature wall or for a kitchen splashback. Or be totally daring and paint your kitchen’s ceiling a majestic hue. Dark kitchen island: Perhaps dark walls, flooring or ceiling is just a bit much for you. If so, consider embracing black or grey by investing in a quality kitchen island. This piece can take pride of place in your kitchen, acting as a focal point. It’s a great option if you’re fond of entertaining friends, enabling you to chat to guests with ease while preparing food. You can also serve up nibbles on your kitchen island, then move into your dining area when the main meals are ready for dishing up. A glossy or matte kitchen island in a dark hue adds a sense of sophistication. Pairing it with cream walls will help keep the space feeling open and light. When you’re cooking, you don’t want to be scrambling around in a dimly lit space, so this is an ideal compromise if you want to embrace darker shades without giving up practicality.

3

Marble, dark grey and brick: Marble is the ultimate in luxury, used in kitchens and bathrooms around the world. If you’re adamant about embracing dark colours but want to create a space that feels balanced, consider playing up different textures. For instance, a cream marble countertop, light grey painted backsplash and matt jet black cupboards work together remarkably well. By playing with glossy, rough and matt finishes, your kitchen will have a unique point of difference. Plus, the use of light grey and speckled cream marble helps balance out the dark shades of the cupboards. Along with inset lights — think small halogen varieties — above key food preparation and cooking areas and you’ll be set!

Staying Active & Engaged as you Age

Stay Fit in Your Senior Years You may not be as nimble as you once were, but that shouldn’t stop you from working out and maintaining your health and fitness as you get older. As you get older, staying active is more important than ever. Research shows that regular exercise can ward off “silent strokes,” prevent falls, manage incontinence, and even improve your memory. One study, funded by the National Institute on Aging and conducted by researchers at four universities, found that moderate aerobic exercise increased the size of the hippocampus (a part of the brain that plays a role in memory) and improved spatial memory. You may wonder, though, if you can keep up the same pace you once did. Can you still ride a bike, run some laps, and play a round of tennis? The answer can be yes, if you make the appropriate adjustments to your fitness routine.

life. Still, many older adults might be concerned about the safety of activities like bicycling, jogging, swimming, dancing, or tennis. The following health tips can help ease those concerns: • Pay attention to your body. “Exercise at a level where you feel like you’re working a bit, but it shouldn’t feel extremely hard,” Ewing Garber says. • Pay attention to your surroundings. “The hard part as people are getting older is they don’t notice that they don’t see as well, react as quickly, or have the same balance,” says Ewing Garber. • Warm up and cool down before exercise. It’s important that seniors warm up to help prepare the body for the workout to come, and they should also bring down their heart rate during a cool-down phase at the end of an exercise session. • Drink plenty of fluids. Don’t forget your fluids - even when you may not feel thirsty. Staying hydrated is always important, but especially on hot days.

Staying fit comes down to you and what you’re comfortable with, says Carol Ewing Garber, PhD, associate professor of movement sciences at Columbia University and a registered clinical exercise physiologist who researches the role of exercise in senior health. “In general, seniors should continue to do what they’ve always enjoyed doing,” Ewing Garber says. “Really, the caveat is that there may need to be some modifications. If it feels comfortable to you, there’s no reason to change. But if you start to feel insecure, it might be time for a change.”

Adapting Your Fitness Activities

Senior health experts say that a sedentary lifestyle can rob seniors of much of their health and enjoyment of

Age Concern, Horowhenua invites you to be entertained

• Watch out for the weather. Seniors can be more vulnerable than others to extreme cold or heat. Be sure to dress appropriately, and move inside to exercise when the weather isn’t cooperating. • Use the proper equipment. Wear a helmet when bicycling and comfortable shoes when running, for example. The right equipment can keep you safe and prevent injury. • Be prepared to change activities if you need to. Runners may develop knee problems and have to switch to another sport, warns Ewing Garber, acknowledging “that can be pretty traumatic for some people.” But if you can find something else you like quickly, you won’t lose your fitness level.

Raiha Giddens knows first-hand that moving in to a rest home is a big decision – but she wants people to know that it can also be a freeing one.

“Living on my own, I was starting to worry a lot about having a fall, and I know my family and friends were starting to worry too.” “Since coming here I’ve become much less anxious – just knowing there’s someone there you can count on to help you makes a huge difference,” she says. Since moving to Levin’s Reevedon Home in November, Raiha says she’s had plenty of opportunities to reconnect with herself and find companionship with others there.

Bowls, bingo, baking... there is always something going on at Reevedon Home and Village. Residents love its central location, homely environment, close-knit community, and varied social calendar.

This unique and social home recognises those who have fought for freedom and cared for our country. Residents enjoy the vibrant and engaging atmosphere, friendly staff and spacious home and grounds.

“I’ve taken up bowls again, which I used to play with my husband but had stopped doing for some time. I also head down to the lounge sometimes because I know there’ll always be someone to talk to there,” she says.

“Residents will often tell me they’re actually able to do more of the things they enjoy here than they were able to living at home. That’s because of the support and level of choice we’re able to offer,” she says. “For residents who enjoy activities like bowls, arts and crafts or even happy hour, there’s always something going on here which they can join, and our recreation team is here to make sure everyone can take part in a way that’s right for them.

“At the end of the day, it’s about what the residents want and how we can support them. After all, this is the residents’ home and we’re passionate about helping them thrive here.” Enliven’s Reevedon Home on Salisbury Street, Levin offers rest home and respite care, as well as a day programme. To learn more, visit www.enlivencentral.org.nz or call 06 368 7900.

“It’s just nice knowing that if there’s something I really want to do, I can do it and the staff will find little ways to support me. For instance, I like to go to church on Sundays, so the staff will keep my lunch warm for me for when I get back. It’s comforting to have people you can depend on like that.” Manager Jenny Hodgen says a major misconception about moving to a rest home is that it means losing your freedom and independence.

Shared fruit and veges goes well for a community stand FOXTON RETURNED, SERVICES AND COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION (INCORPORATED)

Become a member of your local hub… We’re not just an RSA, we’re a community club!

Levin’s new community fruit and vegetable stand is finished and ready to use. Local man Antonio Cioffi has constructed the stand outside his property at 49 Gordon Place for people to drop off any surplus produce or non-perishable food items or take anything from the stand they may need. There is no money involved, with the concept being an entirely community-focused initiative to help provide food and combat waste. The project is part of a nationwide movement of community fruit and vegetable stands, which organisers say have so far been greeted with respect and generosity by people. Mr Cioffi’s stand is the first in Levin, but people in other areas of the town have also expressed interest in building them. If you have any spare produce, or would like to take something to help feed yourself or your family, feel free to visit the stand.

Young guns bring fire to their game

lvn150618golf1

The winners of the MidWeek Men’s Sharks Trophy were Russ Baldwin, Eric Smith, Dale Futcher and Lyal Harris.

Nick Robinson, president of Levin Masters Swim Club, looks relaxed after competing in his event last year.

Paraparaumu’s Senior Reserves young guns brought fire to their game against Rāhui at Ōtaki Domain last Saturday. Coach Garry Phelps said afterwards the game was pretty much a to and fro. “The momentum started with Rāhui and then came to us. During the last 20 minutes the play went Rahui’s way again. It was really exciting to watch. “Our youth did light up the game. They offered explosiveness, while we had experience up front. Though there were a few slip ups on the way, overall it was a good spectacle.” The teams were a good match and the atmosphere from the grand stand was electric. The game was played at Rāhui’s home ground of Ōtaki Domain. Final score: Paraparaumu 41 v Rāhui 36.

Masters motto of ‘Fun, Friendship and Fitness’, some good races are anticipated. On Saturday evening the ‘Skins’ event puts the top 25m sprinters in 20-49 and 50+ age groups both male and female in a series of swim-offs. Spectators are welcome to come and see what Levin Masters swimming is all about and admission is free. Sessions are Friday from 6.30pm to 8pm and Saturday from 5pm to 7pm.
