Retailer Pensioners among fittest in the country takes aim at thieves By Sam Morton An Ashburton business owner, targeted three times last month, is fed up dealing with thieves and hopes to start a business watch network in the CBD. Undercurrent Board Store was hit by out-of-town thieves a fortnight ago and has been hit twice since then. Store owner Lisa Ree said the thieves, believed to be from Christchurch, threw a large rock through the window before climbing into the shop and stealing more than $800 worth of products late at night. Mrs Ree, who has owned the store since March last year, said she was getting sick of hearing about her store being broken into over the weekend and wants retailers in the vicinity to band together and support each other. “It would be really great to get business owners together once a month or so, to talk about any strange happenings or unusual sights they may have seen throughout that month. “We’re all out to protect our businesses and even though we do keep an eye out now, it would be great to really emphasise the point and work together to deter these out of town thieves from hitting Ashburton businesses,” Mrs Ree said. Following the burglary a fortnight ago, two thieves were arrested by police and later appeared in court. Two further thefts have since taken place at the store and despite having reliable CCTV evidence, the thieves in question have not yet been pursued by police. “The police are waiting for me to put a list together of what has been taken, but it just goes to show, it doesn’t matter what security measures you have in place – the thieves will start changing their tactics and that is what has been happening. “You can find a lot of information

on Facebook and these days it’s not too hard to identify the people involved – I have names for who is responsible, but the police still need to go through the right processes,” she said. “I want all this to stop, it’s unfair for out-of-towners to be coming through and targeting our businesses. I am sure other businesses get hit too, so this is becoming an issue and we need to deal with it as a community.” Safer Ashburton general manager Kevin Clifford supported a call for increased vigilance, but encouraged businesses to install security cameras and hire after-hours security teams. Safer Ashburton currently co-ordinates voluntary Safety Ambassador Patrols, operating between certain hours on Friday and Saturday nights. “We only do 12 hours of the week, so there is hundreds of other hours things can happen and we are well aware they do. “While our patrols can act as a deterrent because we are very visible, we can only be in one place at any one time, so again things can happen out of our sight. We report any strange occurrences, but by and large it’s a good reason to have security firms protecting your premises at night,” Mr Clifford said. Police senior sergeant Grant Russell, of Ashburton, was unavailable for comment yesterday.

Enjoying exercise: Mid Canterbury senior residents, including Barbara Irvine, 77 (left), with her friends Judy, Diana and Joanna are getting active and taking to the pool.

By Sam Morton Ashburton pensioners are among the fittest in the country. A Ministry of Health report, released this week, has recommended pensioners do aerobic activity five times a week for at least 30 minutes – in order to live healthier and longer lives. A survey carried out, in conjunction with the report, revealed 55 per cent of men aged between 65 and 74 regularly do exercise, while more than 50 per cent do not. The trend also showed when the over-65s passed their 75th birthdays, exercise rates significantly dropped across the board – subsequently placing a heavy burden on the already under resourced health system. However, while that may be the case throughout most parts of New Zealand, Ashburton appears to fiercely buck the trend.

To see or purchase more photos Dozens of residents over-65 are signing up for exercise classes such as aqua jogging programmes and walking clubs – proving our retired community are more than active. Anecdotally, hundreds of residents often work in their gardens and also carry groceries back to their homes, providing some form of exercise on a regular basis. Green Prescription (a district health initiative) co-ordinator Jackie Welch believed Mid Canterbury seniors were making an effort, where possible and had a commitment to get and stay active.

Numbers for an eight-week taster course, demonstrating a variety of the district’s activities, have recently rocketed, impressing Mrs Welch and her team. “The numbers really are bubbling over - we have had an overwhelming response, which is absolutely great. “When you look at it, there are some really good exercise groups in town and there is a good number of places to spend time and exercise too, which all helps,” she said. “Also, it’s great to see people getting together and being active, rather than try and exercise by yourself and lose all motiva-

tion. We’ve been getting 40-plus people along to our aqua jogging classes during the week and most of them would be retired. “Getting to the pool at 7.30am ... that’s the commitment our community is making to get active and be fit – it’s amazing,” Mrs Welch said. Ashburton resident Joanna van Rooyen, 85, is at the Community Pool at least three times a week without fail. She enjoys jumping in the water with her friends for the aqua jogging class and says she feels stronger every time she leaves the pool. “I wouldn’t miss my exercise for the world ... it’s a very important part of my routine now. “It’s not just about being active, but also to get out and socialise – we never stop talking between us and we’re keeping healthy together. That’s great psychologically and physically,” she said.

Her friend Diana Dynes, 73, also reaps the benefits of regular exercise and urges anyone, of any age, to get out of the house and be active. “It’s so important, it really is. At our age, if we don’t get out and use it, then we’ll lose it. You have to keep the weight off and you have to be fit, you live a much better quality of life, I feel,” she said. “It’s lovely to get in the pool and we all have a lot of fun as a group. I don’t know what else I’d be doing and it’s a great social opportunity too.” The new guidelines suggest exercises such as aqua jogging, housework, modified tai chi, petanque, yoga and bowls. Research has shown physical activity has many health benefits for people in their later years, including preventing depression, premature death from falls, heart disease, certain cancers and obesity.

Two locals in Dairy Woman of the Year finals By Michelle Nelson Rakaia features strongly in this year’s lineup for the NZ Dairy Woman of the Year award. Synlait Farms’ chief executive Juliet MacLean and farmer and account manager for AgITO Kathryn van den Beuken hold two of the six finalist spots. An advocate for training in the dairy sector, Mrs van den Beuken has been farming alongside husband Leo since the early 1990s. The couple currently milk 1150 cows in their 11th season as 50:50 sharemilkers, employing

five staff. They also own a 160 hectare farm milking 530 cows in the Winchmore region, where they employ lower order sharemilkers. The van den Beukens won the New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards (NZDIA) Sharemilker of the Year title in 2005, after which Mrs van den Beuken co-ordinated the National Trainee of the Year award. She has also convened the Canterbury/North Otago Dairy Industry Awards. Mrs van den Beuken was nominated for the Dairy Woman of the Year award by the Ashburton Trading Society and her primary ITO colleague, Lucy Haberfield.

“I am passionate about the industry that has provided career opportunities, positive challenges and enabled my family to grow their business from 110 to 1700 cows and operate two successful businesses,” she said. “I am honoured and privileged to be nominated as a finalist for the competition because there are so many women who play a fantastic role in promoting and working in the dairy industry.” After completing an agricultural degree, Mrs MacLean commenced her career as a successful dairy farmer, including sharemilking, farm ownership and co-found-

ing the dairy business Synlait Limited, which today owns 49 per cent of Synlait Milk Limited and 100 per cent of Synlait Farms Limited. She is responsible for the strategic leadership, research and innovation and daily operations of 14 farms in the Mid Canterbury region. A member of the Institute of Directors, a Nuffield, Kellogg and Massey Scholar and a Nuffield New Zealand Trustee, Mrs MacLean is also involved in many industry organisations including the Lincoln University Dairy Farm Management Advisory Group.

She was nominated for the award by colleague Susie Woodward, who said Mrs MacLean inspired dairying women by leading by example. Mrs MacLean said making a positive difference within the dairy industry and helping other people to ‘be the best they can be’ are values she holds dear. “I love seeing people learn, develop in their careers and achieve their goals. To be a part of that is very rewarding. Being nominated for the Dairy Woman of the Year is very humbling,” she said. Run by the Dairy Women’s Network and sponsored by Fonterra, the award includes

Schools gear up for tablets By Myles Hume Almost half of Mid Canterbury’s schools are beefing up their infrastructure to cater for a revolution in classroom teaching. It comes as schools throughout the district continue to purchase tablets for their classrooms in line with predictions from local experts that each child will arrive at school with their own device within the next few years. Ten schools in the district are seeking to upgrade their wifi systems which will allow faster and further access to internet around schools, advancing the district’s lead

on classroom technology. “Historically schools put wifi in their office areas for staff meetings or wifi to the photocopier so traditionally they only had had one unit. But now because of the number of devices coming into schools they need the technology to cope,” Mid Canterbury Fibre Connected Schools (MCFCS) regional support co-ordinator Trudy Hulme said. “It allows devices to be mobile, tablets such as iPads and iPhones can be taken around schools. They don’t have to worry about cords or being limited to one area,” Each of the 10 schools had undergone an audit by Trinity Systems

who then reported to the MCFCS advising them on how many modems they would need to provide better internet coverage around the schools. They found 104 units were needed to cater for the 10 schools, costing about $14,500 which schools budgeted out of their operations grants. Ms Hulme said schools were latching on to the more financially viable option now, with each of the commercially used units costing about $140, an average of $1400 per school - a drastic drop in price since 2009. “Historically they have been very expensive to buy, I know of a $30,000 system three years ago so

you can see why schools are heading this way,” Ms Hulme said. Lauriston School was one of the schools looking to upgrade their system, with installation starting yesterday. Principal Diane Prendergast said the current system “wasn’t always reliable” and would not cope with the direction the school was heading with its teaching, which included purchasing at least another 10 iPads. “Our system was an external one and was set up to allow students to use within the classroom, whereas this one will be more far reaching anywhere any time and it will be

more reliable.” EA Networks has been influential in the way technology has advanced in Mid Canterbury schools thanks to the scheme which put ultra-fast internet into school a couple of years ago. Commercial manager Jeremy Adamson said he was blown away with how fast local schools had taken advantage of the broadband and he was pleased to see it being used the way the company envisaged. He said it was vital Mid Canterbury youngsters in rural and urban Ashburton had the same opportunities as those in the cities.

Good samaritan’s stolen car found

Ten years ago Andy Tookey tried to launch an awareness campaign around organ donations. To this day, New Zealand’s donation rate remains one of the lowest in the world and donor reform campaigners, like Mr Tookey, desperately want to get the message out. Mr Tookey, who works for Christchurch based organisation Gift for Life, is out to lift donor numbers and help educate the country on the benefits of donating. Last year, only 38 deceased donors gave an organ, while the previous year and last decade’s statistics reveal little to no progress. “It is disappointing – nothing has changed and we’re still where we were in 2002,” he said. Despite the country’s population growing by almost half a million in the last decade, the number of deceased donors is worryingly unchanged. Recent figures show there were 118 transplants last year – total-

Mr Tookey was concerned about the lack of interest in donating organs and has called for a major overhaul from the Government to help encourage Kiwis to donate. He suggested funeral finance for donors. “Quite a lot of people in society automatically say no to their family member being an organ donor, but they might think twice if all the costs are covered for the funeral,” he said. “It’s ironic that many people already get a funeral grant from either being a beneficiary or from ACC, but donors who go on to save the lives of, or improve the quality of life for up to 10 people, get nothing.” However, the need to persuade more people to say yes when it comes to donating organs appears

Andy Tookey to have been recognised by the Ministry of Health, who announced last year they will inject an extra $4 million towards organ donations, including $2m for further staff training to help identify possible donors. Organ Donation NZ donor co-

ordinator Janice Langlands said about 55 per cent of families who were asked to consider donating a relative’s organs agreed to do so – a higher proportion than the 48.8 per cent of people who indicated they wanted to be donors on their driving licences. Though, under current New Zealand legislation, the wish on a driving licence counts for nothing as the decision is left ultimately to the family. “From our perspective, we’re trying to ensure that all potential donors are identified in the intensive care unit and families are given the opportunity of donation,” she said. A poll conducted on Guardian Online yesterday shows more than 85 per cent of respondents believe the wish on a driving licence should be adhered to, while the remaining percentage thought the family should have the final say.

Oamaru firm closes; 193 jobs lost Japan’s Sumitomo Corp says it has sold Summit Wool Spinners plant to Australia’s Godfrey Hirst and Summit’s Oamaru plant will close with the loss of 193 jobs. Summit is New Zealand’s largest independent spinner, supplying carpet and rug yarn for the domestic and international markets. Members of the EPMU and FIRST Union were told of the decision at a site meeting yesterday afternoon. EPMU organiser John Gardner said Summit - Oamaru’s second biggest employer - had been hit hard by the high New Zealand dollar. “These redundancies are devastating for staff and for the whole community of Oamaru which relies so heavily on these jobs,” he said in a statement. Sumitomo said the decision to sell was driven by a number of factors

• Ashburton police arrested a 34-year-old male yesterday and charged him with two counts of wilful damage, two charges of assault and one charge of burglary. The arrest related to an incident that occurred in Ashburton on Wednesday night. The man will appear in the Ashburton District Court on Monday. • The Ashburton Volunteer Fire Brigade attended to sightings of smoke on Wilkins Road in Tinwald yesterday, about 10.30am. The fire turned out to be minor. • The brigade was also called out to a loader reportedly on fire south of Hinds, about 3.15pm. The crews were turned back on route to the destination. • The fire crews also attended a callout in the Queens Drive/Saunders Rd area, which turned out to be a false alarm, about 4.40pm.

Ashburton will not take part in Bike Wise month for the third year in a row. While most of the country has events planned throughout the month to encourage New Zealanders to get on their bikes, Ashburton does not have any events planned for locals to take part in. Timaru has planned events on most days throughout February, along with the Waimakariri and Selwyn Districts. Sport Canterbury Mid Canterbury branch manager Jan Cochrane said it had been a great family event in the past and she hoped it would return in the future.

• Bike Wise non-start

By Shelley Robinson A car that was stolen while its owner helped to fight a house fire in Christchurch has been found. And now the Good Samaritan cum victim has turned crime fighter to bring the thief to justice. Shane Holden, 47, was going to work at 10.30pm on January 16 when he stopped his car, left it running and sprinted to help fight a fire in Leaver Tce, North Beach. After helping a neighbour battle the flames, he watched in disbelief as a cheeky thief stole his car. Mr Holden said police called him on Monday to say that his 1992 Subaru Legacy RS was out the back of an abandoned house in Percy St, Phillipstown. “I needed a tow truck to get it. “It’s got a smashed front like it rammed another car. The right front panel and door are smashed and there is rear damage and the skirting is all damaged. Parts of the motor are missing and the rims on the wheels are like someone purposely smashed into the footpath. The chassis is all bent up - she’s a mess,” he said. An annoyed Mr Holden has this week launched his own investigation as to who he thinks stole the car. “I know now who did it and where they live,” he said. Mr Holden said he would be handing the information into police today. - APNZ

affecting trading results, including an unfavourable exchange rate and less local demand for wool carpets. International demand for woollen carpet yarn had also been affected by the global financial crisis, Summit’s managing director Harry Ogawa said. From Sumitomo’s perspective, Summit was becoming isolated from the parent’s global textile business, he said. The acquisition is expected to become effective from the end of February. The plant was sold to the Godfrey Hirst subsidiary Canterbury Spinners, which operates plants in Lower Hutt and Dannevirke. Sumitomo is one of Japan’s largest listed companies. An unnamed worker said: “I think there was a feeling that there was

something going down. It was hard to take it all in. It was a lot of information to hear. “It will take a bit to digest it all and make sense of it. There will be a lot of stunned families tonight.” Greens co-leader Metiria Turei said the the jobs were “sacrificed because of the National Government’s devotion to a failed monetary policy and its unwillingness to change with the times”. “This week, manufacturers came to the Parliamentary Inquiry into Manufacturing and warned us that more businesses would close and more jobs would be lost unless the Government gets the dollar down to a fair level quickly. “These 192 redundancies, and the other jobs that will surely be lost in Oamaru as the shock of the loss of its iconic employer ripples through

the community, are proof that the manufacturers were not exaggerating in their plea for government intervention,” she said. Labour’s finance spokesman David Parker said the current owners and workers of Summit were more victims of the high dollar, which was crippling exporters and costing jobs. “This cannot go on. On Monday chief executives of major Kiwi companies told the Parliamentary Inquiry on Manufacturing that the high dollar is forcing them to cut jobs, reduce investment and, in some cases, head offshore or shut down. “Our manufacturing sector outside primary industries is being hollowed out and the dollar is to blame. But National refuses to consider any changes that might lower the exchange rate,” he said. - APNZ

on bridge route By Sue Newman Owners of properties significantly affected by the route of a second bridge across the Ashburton River will soon see initial design work on the final path the new road will take. From two possible options, the council last year identified its route for the second bridge. This will use Chalmers Avenue with a new road to be constructed on land to the east of Grove Street in Tinwald. A number of lifestyle blocks will be affected by the new road, with the Ashburton District Council intending to designate land this year to protect the route. The council plans to hold two meetings, one for directly affected property owners and the other for those peripherally affected at which the nuts and bolts of the new route will be spelled out. Council operations manager Rob Rouse said the final route chosen had two design options – a T -intersection with Wilkins Road or a curved alignment. “We’ll be talking with the directly affected landowners with specifics on the alignments and the impact on their


property and we’ll also meet with adjacent land owners to talk about the possible impact on them.” Options for using remaining land the council would need to acquire for the work still had to be worked through, he said. With the council having tagged several routes for the bridge access through urban and rural areas of Tinwald, its decision last year on a final route ended years of uncertainty for property owners. The next round of meetings will spell out the final impact on their land and it will also provide answers on land acquisition. When the details on the new route have been finalised, the council will notify its intention to designate the land for the bridge route. This will be done by the middle of this year and the public will be able to make submissions on the designation application. A hearing will then be held, with a decision on the designation expected by the end of the year. Landowners of properties designated for the bridge route will have to sell their properties to the council at market value. If they refuse, the council can acquire this land under the Public Works Act.

The golden weather being enjoyed by much of the country will come to an end early next week, but it will be back, says the MetService. The incoming weather system is forecast to bring rain across most parts of New Zealand and could be heavy for a time in some western provinces. “The big high that was stuck, or blocked, in place just to the east of New Zealand is now weakening, and this will allow a brief spell of rain to move through Sunday and early next week,” MetService spokesman Daniel Corbett said. Unfortunately, the rain accompanying the southerly change will be far more limited, and not nearly enough for the very dry regions in the east and north of the North Island. -APNZ

BCI imposes restrictions By Susan Sandys Dry weather is putting pressure on the 65 farmers who are on Mid Canterbury’s new BCI irrigation scheme. General manager John Wright said the scheme, which sources water from the Rakaia River, was close to going onto restrictions again as the river’s levels dropped.

“We are just looking for a change in the weather pattern to resolve the issue,” Mr Wright said. Farmers on the scheme would be “nervous” about the possibility of restrictions until the scheme could begin to access stored water from Lake Coleridge, which would likely be later this season in March. The scheme is to benefit from stored water at Lake Coleridge following TrustPower receiving com-

missioner approval last year to vary the conditions of the river’s Water Conservation Order. “The odd day off isn’t devastating. If it lasts for two to three weeks it will hurt, but there’s no indication that it’s going to be for that long yet,” Mr Wright said. There were partial restrictions on the river on Tuesday and Wednesday. As of today the level at which water can be taken will

drop, easing the pressure on the scheme. The restrictions were to be expected, with scheme planners having estimated the scheme would be able to provide water 82 per cent of the time to shareholders. Brad Monk manages a 600-cow farm at Methven, which is on the scheme. “We are living day by day,” he said of the prospect of restrictions.

Water had been cut for just a 12-hour period so far this season, and he could receive a text at any moment notifying of further restrictions. “We are good at the moment. It would have to be longer than three to four days then we would start feeling it,” Mr Monk said. Highbank dairy farmer Jeremy Casey, who farms 1400 cows with partner Kim Solly, said restrictions

kicked in on his farm overnight Tuesday, but water was back on again on Wednesday. “We always know it (restrictions) is a possibility. We are hoping the Lake Coleridge thing will come in sooner rather than later,” Mr Casey said. The farm had “heaps of silage” as a back up, in the case of grass growth being compromised by a lack of water.

Farmers were working up a sweat harvesting their crops in prime conditions this week. Mid Canterbury Federated Farmers grain and seed chairperson David Clark (pictured harvesting ryegrass on his Valetta farm) said the weather had been “fantastic”. “It means you can put a good solid afternoon and evening of harvesting in and get across a good area of ground,” Mr Clark said. The weather had meant “some long hours” were being worked by crop farmers around the district, who were making the most of the conditions to bring in ryegrass, peas and early barley. It would be another couple of weeks before wheat would be harvested.

Garden contest format ‘a winner’ Mum, children escape blaze Ashburton’s annual garden competition is running under a new fomat this year and it’s proving a winner, says organiser Dick Bennett. The Ashburton Horticultural Society chairman said the group had gone out on a limb this year, inviting gardeners to enter the competition rather than having members of the society drive around town selecting gardens.

Under the old regime, the society then had to contact the owners of those gardens, asking if they were happy to take part in the competition, but under the restyled competition, only those who were wiling would enter, Mr Bennett said. There were initial concerns that the event may not attract sufficient numbers, but that had not been the case with several gardens entered in each category.

Two new categories have been added to this year’s event, for back sections and native gardens. Other sections include premier (for previous open winners), open, best flowers, best lawns and best individual feature. Entries close on Sunday night and judging will take place on March 10, by members of the Christchurch Horticultural Society.

Rethink required over district halls

A woman and her two young children escaped a blazing inferno in their Tamatea house yesterday morning with little more than what they were wearing. The speed at which the fire tore through the timber and fibrolite Westminster Ave house stunned neighbours as well as fire crews which arrived on the scene just after 3.30am. “It went through pretty quick. It was well involved by the time we got there,” one firefighter said. One neighbour said the fire was raging through the house from “end to end”. “Our first worry was them [the occupants] but they had got out okay. I don’t think they had anything from the house which was just going up,” the neighbour

said. He was forced to move his van in his driveway about 10 metres from the blaze as the heat had begun building up. “I was getting a bit worried but the most important thing is they got out,” he said. The man said the woman got in touch with family, who he thought may have lived nearby, and they came and collected her and the children. Three fire appliances attended the blaze and fire crews were still at the scene four hours later dampening down hotspots. The house, which the woman is understood to have rented, was completely gutted. There were no immediate indications how the fire had started. - APNZ

Poll closes at 4pm

By Sue Newman Smaller community centres, rather than rambling, open plan halls could provide the Ashburton District’s rural community hubs of the future. That suggestion was put to community hall committee representatives yesterday at a meeting with the Ashburton District Council where the cost of insurance was number one on the agenda. Council property manager John Rooney said that the cost of insuring rural halls was placing an increasing burden on rural communities, but the council had given those communities some insurance options. “We’ve suggested to them that they might like to look within their communities and ask whether they would put up a large hall that was used in the past for country dances and big gatherings if their hall fell down, or would they look at something more functional that met today’s needs, with smaller rooms for meetings and play groups.” If they chose the smaller building, then those communities could halve their insurance costs by insuring their existing hall for functional replacement rather than reinstatement, Mr Rooney said. “If they decide they want to do this, the council has offered to work with those communities to help draw up plans for what a new building could look like. Instead of 400 square metres of a big open hall, communities might decide they were better served by having a smaller community centre that would cost a lot less to build.” It was up to each rural community how they approached the insurance issue and the council’s role was about providing

The hall was advertised for sale for relocation in 2008 but failed to find a new owner. advice and options, Mr Rooney said. “It’s for hall committees to decide what’s best for their communities because Rakaia, for example, will have vastly different requirements to somewhere like Lowcliffe. Transport has improved and the needs of communities have changed. Mid Canterbury is very different to what it was 30 years ago and vastly different to what it was 50 years ago.” Alford Forest Hall secretary Bayden Summerville said his hall was not well used but the community still had to find money for insurance and maintenance. Many people in the community, however,

saw the hall as the heart of the community and would hate to see it go. However, if the hall did fall down, Mr Summerville said it would be unlikely to be replaced by something similar. And the story is the same for Seafield Hall said secretary Elizabeth Rankin. It has only occasional use and maintenance was carried out by volunteers. If it disappeared tomorrow it was probable the community might elect not to replace it, she said. A summary of the meeting would be sent to hall committees not represented at the meeting.

Suspicions raised over hospital plans By Coen Lammers editor


ome Mid Canterbury residents will be starting to get suspicious about the recent developments at the Ashburton Hospital. Many locals with a good memory still have vivid memories of the battles to save the local hospital. Back in the mid-1990s, the National Government of the time was keen to scrap the Ashburton services, ironically with local girl Jenny Shipley as Minister of Health becoming the enemy. A massive community campaign eventually convinced Mrs Shipley to go and find some savings elsewhere in the country but the scars of that battle remain across the district. With our ageing population the demand for health services continues to grow and reliance on Christchurch resources or the Westpac helicopter are not perceived as acceptable alternatives. Ashburton Hospital last year had to shut down its surgical operating theatres due to earthquake damage and the Canterbury District Health Board is currently working through all its damaged buildings around the region to decide which structures are being rebuilt and what services may have to move. Mid Canterbury this week got its first taste of this new strategy when the DHB announced the anaesthetists would be centralised and that the three resident specialist positions at Ashburton Hospital had been disestablished. The most intriguing part of this news was that the health board refused to say whether the three anaesthetists had


Inquiry into Novopay By Kate Shuttleworth The Government has warned it could still scrap the Novopay payroll system and has revealed that its back-up plan could include working with the previous payroll provider. Minister in charge of Novopay Steven Joyce yesterday announced a ministerial inquiry and a technical audit of the flawed education payroll system. The technical audit would be carried out by Deloitte but would incorporate the results of the audit currently being undertaken by Ernst & Young on behalf of the Ministry of Education. The ministerial inquiry will start in March or April and run for up to four months. A contingency plan was being investigated and could include scrapping the payroll system but

Council continues to muck about with the open water race system. It did what it was designed for and no doubt still does but any water flow past a property today is viewed as wasted. It is not. The district is in a mess over water and is that way because water has been over allocated and even more is still sought to pursue even more dairy farming and council is quite willing to sacrifice the small holding which has had access to these small flows for many years. What remains of our rivers has been destroyed as leisure spots because of reduced flows and ever present pollution. No action is ever suggested to alleviate this problem, yet a solution is in the hands of ECan. Water takes should be moni-



ARIES (Mar 21st Apr 20th) A friend can become so much more this month but sadly you may also discover that someone else in your circle is more the fair-weather variety of pal. With your moods up and down at times you need to surround yourself with people who you can really rely upon. The best advice, Aries, is not to take anyone for granted. All relationships need working at.


and Craig Foss had signed off on the Novopay system even though the system had “bugs” in it. “In terms of the advice to proceed, all advisers were unanimous in their decision that it should proceed,” said Mr Joyce. When asked if Novopay was a “dog”, Mr Joyce replied: “it’s one with a few fleas.” Mr Joyce said those fleas, or “bugs” were going to be investigated during the month-long technical audit running in tandem with the ministerial inquiry. The technical audit would incorporate the results of the audit currently being undertaken by Ernst and Young for the ministry. Mr Joyce is to take the terms of reference for the ministerial inquiry to Cabinet on Monday. The Government will fund new measures to fix Novopay. Mr Joyce could not say the exact amount being spent but it is believed to be in

the millions of dollars. The commercial and contractual issues between Talent2 and the Government would be put to one side until the ministerial inquiry and technical inquiry were completed. Mr Joyce said the Government would then go through the contract to determine who was responsible for the cost. “There is still some debate around responsibilities for different elements of the extra resource we’re going to need” “We don’t want the inquiry to get in the way of fixing the system. “The reality is there are no steps forward that don’t involve some more pain for the administrators and the people who are working on the payroll,” he said. Mr Joyce stressed the technical audit and the ministerial inquiry were separate and he didn’t want the inquiry to get in the way of fixing the system.

left voluntarily or had been made redundant. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle with the specialists choosing their own fate as the writing would have been on the wall. The conspiracy theorists in the district will see this decision as the first indication that the hospital will lose some or all of its surgical services, despite promises from the DHB that Ashburton will keep those facilities. Naturally, with the surgical blocks currently being out of action due to earthquake damage, there is not much demand for anaesthetists but you could assume this was a temporary situation with surgery about to resume later this year. The DHB says the latest restructure is simply a centralisation of specialist services to create better efficiencies. They are quick to add the locals have nothing to fear as the remaining rural specialists are equipped enough to deal with any emergency and can stabilise any patient before further transport to Christchurch. The fact however that the DHB does not want to reveal how the three local specialists have departed, raises questions. With Ashburton’s bad experiences with the health authorities this will be enough to fuel the existing distrust. Sadly, it will not be until normal service resumes and the first patient books in for elective surgery in Ashburton Hospital that the local concerns will be laid to rest.

tored and the take paid for. A water extraction permit adds some 25 to 30% to the value of the property and it has always been somewhat of a mystery to me why this regime was not in place from day one.

National MP David Carter was elected Speaker in Parliament yesterday afternoon. He won a vote against Labour MP Trevor Mallard, who was nominated at the last minute by his party. Mr Carter replaces MP Lockwood Smith, who is leaving to become High Commissioner in London. Mr Carter received 62 votes to Mr Mallard’s 52. The new Speaker said he would try to match Dr Smith’s fairness in the House. “I would like to assure members that I will strive to master that transition from a partisan political player to a Speaker who upholds the democratic traditions of Parliament, and respects the right of every one of you elected to this House to express their views.” He said he did not underestimate the challenge he faced. “I see my responsibility being akin to a referee, reffing the inevitable Super 15 final between the almighty Crusaders and one of the others.” “And as a referee, having to make an instant decision, and of course not having access to the whistle. “But I will have access to yellow and red cards, though I hope they are used infrequently.” - APNZ

Your ability to use your mental faculties to good effect is also boosted from now. Technology and publishing can feature and links with faraway places and unusual faces are blessed.

But whether the system could be fixed was a main part of the investigation and Mr Joyce could not firmly rule out scrapping Novopay entirely He had met sector groups this week - principals, and staff in schools, unions and more announcements would be made in the coming weeks. Mr Joyce could not say when school staff would be paid correctly, or when the problems with Novopay would be sorted out. Education Minister Ms Parata said all the advice at the time suggested they should proceed. “I think hindsight is a wonderful thing,” she said. Labour’s acting education spokesman Chris Hipkins said Novopay wasn’t ready to be implemented. “They didn’t ask fundamental questions about whether or not it was ready,” said Mr Hipkins. - APNZ

in the meantime the Government would stick with it, Mr Joyce said. He and acting Education Secretary Peter Hughes had begun talks with Datacom, the previous payroll provider. “We’re basically investigating setting up a contingency - I want to stress that would not be a simple solution. “You would have to wind back a significant amount of what’s been done and then go forward again, and I don’t think anybody is under any illusion that that solution would be at least as painful as where we are in the short term.” He said that would not be a decision taken lightly. Mr Joyce said the Datacom payroll system had also had problems and was part of the reason the Government pushed for an alternative. Mr Joyce also confirmed Cabinet Ministers Bill English, Hekia Parata

Cheque forgery after stolen mail By Cullen Smith Police are investigating a series of rural mail thefts in North Canterbury after a $100 cheque intended as a donation to a charity was cashed for more than $10,000. The thefts follow a similar pattern to recent incidents in the Selwyn area where mail, including cheques, bank statements and other documents have been stolen from rural mail boxes. Detective Sergeant Rex Barnett, of the Rangiora CIB, said a Swannanoa woman wrote a cheque to Presbyterian Support Services on December 12, but was shocked when she received

The woman left an envelope containing the cheque in her rural mail box on Tram Rd and put the red flag up, indicating there was mail to be collected. Detective Sergeant Barnett said the woman thought no more about it until her bank statement arrived. “Someone has stolen the cheque from her mailbox, deleted the amount and payee and turned it into $10,067,” he said. Three other cheques also stolen recently from a private rural mail box on Tram Rd have also been cashed fraudulently. Detective Sergeant Barnett

said police were contacted last Thursday by a Tram Rd resident who said he’d posted four cheques in the rural mail system recently “and three have come back as being fraudulently altered”. “Clearly there have been systematic thefts from the mail system in the Swannanoa and Eyreton area,” he said. “It’s a worrying trend.” Police were checking bank security camera images to try to identify people who had cashed the stolen cheques. Detective Sergeant Barnett urged rural residents who regularly use the mail system to check their bank balances. He said residents should also

Five people have been arrested and charged in relation to the Selwyn mail thefts, including a middle-aged Springston woman and her 17-year-old son. Police said the offenders allegedly used details from mail stolen from letterboxes across the district to phone homeowners and convince them to hand over personal details that gave the thieves access to victims’ bank accounts.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd - Jan 20th) If your mind drifts off when you’re talking to someone today and you wonder if they’re listening to what you are saying or thinking about how you really feel, it be no surprise. Yet remember that most people will not be that perceptive. Pleasingly, the next three weeks can see a time of revival for your finances, though resolve over a diet plan may weaken.

Dad finds son’s plane wreckage By Kieran Campbell A man searching for his son after he failed to return from a microlight flight discovered the wreckage on a beach not far from home - but not the body of his son. West Coast man Peter Ashby had gone in search of his son Cole, 25, after he received a call that the aircraft his son was a passenger in was overdue from a flight. What he found, on Carters Beach not far from the Ashby family home, was the crumpled wreckage of the aircraft and the

body of the 58-year-old pilot Roger Smith. Cole’s body was found about a kilometre away, believed to have been swept from the crash site by the tide. Cole and Mr Smith died after crashing on the beach near Westport some time on Wednesday night. Peter Ashby said his son was an adventurous young man who died while making the most of his life. “When you play with fire you expect to get burnt,” Mr Ashby said last night. “You know the risks and that’s just where it ends. It’s one of those things ... you can’t cover

your kids up in cotton wool. “[I told Cole] make the most of life, and he did.” Mr Smith’s family declined to speak to the media. “He was a good pilot, he’d been flying for a long time [and] he’s well-renowned for his flying,” Mr Ashby said. “They wouldn’t do anything stupid or dangerous. “It makes me wonder if it was the engine that malfunctioned because he was a good flyer and he wouldn’t fly into fog.” Fog had drifted over Westport unexpectedly on Wednesday evening after the duo started their flight during fine weather.

West Coast police search and rescue co-ordinator Sergeant Sean Judd said police were interviewing several people who may have heard or seen the aircraft before it crashed. He said there was conflicting information but an indication that the microlight was seen flying near Carters Beach about 9.10pm on Wednesday. Mr Ashby said the family was close and his son had many friends who had all offered their condolences. Some visited the family home yesterday to share a beer and memories of the young man. “Cole was a full-on sort of guy.

He loved to do stuff, he wasn’t a sit-at-home-and-watch-television guy,” Mr Ashby said. “Motocross, snowboarding, wakeboarding, skiing, drift cars he’d do anything that was adventurous. “He was adventurous but he wasn’t stupid.” He worked hard as a machine operator at Stockton opencast mine and spent every weekend he could spending time with his dad. “Always we used to go shooting and fishing, camping and skiing,” Mr Ashby said. “Every weekend, whenever he had time off. “He was a very special boy.”

Buller Mayor Pat McManus said the men were well known in the community and the pilot, who he knew personally, had been flying for “quite some time”. “[I heard the news] just straight off the street, as you often do in Westport. Sometimes it’s true and sometime’s it’s not. Sadly this time it was true,” Mr McManus said. Mr McManus said the community was in shock at the news. “It’s just another sad event for the West Coast,” he said. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is investigating and has taken the wreckage for examination. - APNZ

Store encounter sealed pair’s future Quake costs expected to soar By Michelle Nelson

By Shelley Robinson Christchurch city councillors have been warned in a secret meeting that the cost of fixing quake damaged underground infrastructure could be much more than originally thought. Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee called city councillors to a meeting on December 14 where he outlined how serious the problem was. The Government has previously said it will pay for 60 per cent of the repair bill - the other 40 per cent being met by the city council, which means ratepayers could foot all or part of that bill. But up to 80 per cent of the extent of the damage underground is still not known; and the cost blowout could be huge. City councillors and Mayor Bob Parker gave Mr Brownlee an assurance at the meeting they would not talk publicly about what was discussed. Councillors and Mr Parker refused to discuss the meeting yesterday. Mr Brownlee confirmed that the meeting had taken place, but would not give specifics as to what he told city councillors. “You are asking me to release it all and I’m not going to do that,” he said. “Councillors do need to have time to think of the implications for ratepayers,” he said. In September the Government announced a $1.1b five-year

repair plan for earthquake damaged roads and underground services. But the Government is now worried that figure could balloon several times over because of the extent of the unknown damage. Mr Brownlee told the meeting that no one knew how the cost was going to be met - whether through rates, selling off assets or raising loans. Mr Brownlee said the cost of repairing the underground infrastructure would not be known until the work was finished. “All I can say is that when it is finished we will know the cost,” he said. “Until we get the digger out we can’t fully know the cost,” he said. Mr Parker could not comment on the meeting as he did not want to lose Mr Brownlee’s confidence. “I think he should respond and explain his rationale as it was his meeting. If you are invited to a confidential meeting you accept it and be party to the information or reject it,” said Mr Parker Labour’s earthquake recovery spokeswoman, Christchurch East MP Lianne Dalziel, said she was concerned the meeting was held in secret. “That is a very old-fashioned way with dealing with these matters. It is vital for the rebuild that there is transparency and accountability right the way through instead of the minister having private meetings with city councillors behind closed doors,” she said. -APNZ

Camp for quake workers Resource consent has been granted for a temporary camp that will house up to 200 rebuild workers in St Albans, Christchurch. Christchurch company JGM Group Ltd has been granted consent to build a complex of relocatable single-bedroom accommodation units at the former Orion site on the corner of Madras and Canon streets. The temporary 10-year camp, Cressy Village, is one of four that will be built throughout Christchurch and it is expected these rented sites could provide a home for more than 1000 people. It is understood the camp will be open in April. The 2.38ha site will include suites, a bar, catering, dining hall, restaurant, cafe, laundry, storage, gym, a small football pitch, basket-

ball hoops and other recreational facilities. The development is funded by JGM Group Ltd which will rent the sites from existing landowners. Each unit would contain a single bedroom, bathroom, wardrobe/ storage and a kitchenette. There would be 24-hour security on site with swipe-card access to the facility and alcohol controls. Background checks for tenants would have to be completed before they moved in. The construction company signs the tenancy agreement and any misbehaviour is treated as an employment issue. About 30 to 50 jobs will be created to help run the facility. After the village is closed, the land will go back to the owner of the site. - APNZ

Sixty years ago yesterday a young couple took their wedding vows at St Andrew’s Church in Rakaia. Roy and Natalie Gardiner are Rakaia locals through and through – she was a girl from a farming family up the river; he grew up on a farm down the river. Yesterday they recalled where it all began. “We met across the counter at Harvey’s store, right here in Rakaia,” Mr Gardiner said. He was 21 and his wife-tobe, 16. This week the congratulatory cards from the Queen, the Governor General and politicians arrived and the couple celebrated the anniversary with family and friends, in the same town where they made their home and raised a family. At the time of their marriage, Mr Gardiner was a shearer, and in the custom of the day, Mrs Gardiner gave up work to raise the children, Ian, Dianne and Joanne. Both have worked together tirelessly for the good of their community, and to support their children’s interests. Mr Gardiner has been a longtime member of the local Lions chapter, refereed rugby games and helped out with countless causes. Mrs Gardiner has been a secretary for many groups, and is still secretary for the Rakaia Women’s Institute, the community centre and the swimming club. At 8am each Saturday morning they both show up at the Rakaia Resource Centre to sort recycling. Their secret to the long and happy union has been holding their marriage vows close, trusting each other, and of course love has played a big part. “I won’t say we have never argued, but we always worked it out,” Mrs Gardiner said. In retirement the couple share the chores; taking turns to get up to collect the newspaper and make a cup of tea for the other. They prepare meals together, one does the dishes, and the other dries them. He mows the lawns; she trims the edges. He grows the vegetables; she tends the flower gardens. Now that Mr Gardiner no longer drives, his wife has mastered driving the 4WD “wagon”, enabling him to indulge in a favourite pastime Natalie and Roy Gardiner celebrated 60 years of marriage yesterday. – salmon fishing.

Israeli strike hits Syrian research centre An Israeli air strike has hit a military research centre near Damascus, killing two people, the Syrian army says, denying reports that the raid targeted a weapons convoy near the Lebanese border. Residents who spoke to Agence France-Presse on condition of anonymity said the strike targeted a non-conventional weapons research centre some 15km northwest of the Syrian capital. “Israeli fighter jets violated our airspace at dawn today and carried out a direct strike on a scientific research centre in charge of raising our level of resistance and self-defence,” Syria’s army said. The raid came “after terrorist groups made several failed attempts in the past months to take control of the site,” its general command said, referring to rebels fighting to oust President Bashar al-Assad’s regime. The warplanes entered Syrian airspace via Mount Hermon, or Jabal el-Sheikh in Arabic, at low altitude and under the radar, the army said in the statement carried by state media. “They ... carried out an act of aggression, bombarding the site, causing large-scale material damage and destroying the building,” state television quoted the military as saying. Two site workers were killed in the strike, said the army, while denying reports Israel had launched a strike overnight on a weapons convoy near Lebanon. Residents told AFP that six rockets hit the complex, leaving it

partially destroyed, causing a fire and killing two people. The attack came after Israel expressed concerns that Damascus’ stockpile of chemical weapons could fall into the hands of Lebanon’s Shi’ite Hezbollah group, an ally of Assad’s regime, or other militant organisations. Israel, whose officials have said such that a transfer would be a casus belli and likely spark an attack, refused to comment on the attack. The United States, which is currently hosting Israeli military intelligence chief Aviv Kochavi, also declined to comment. As well as concerns about Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile, Israel has accused Syria of supplying long-range Scud missiles to Hezbollah. It has also warned about the dangers of other advanced weaponry falling into the Lebanese militia’s hands, such as anti-aircraft systems and surface-to-surface missiles. Ahead of the strike, several sources reported a high level of “unusual” Israeli activity over Lebanese airspace, since Wednesday evening. The Lebanese army said Israeli warplanes had entered Lebanese airspace up to 16 times within 16 hours this week. “Every day there are Israeli overflights, but on Tuesday they were much more intense than usual,” a Lebanese security source said on condition of anonymity.   – AFP

A nationwide fault yesterday morning left many shoppers unable to make transactions using ANZ/National Bank credit and direct debit cards. A technical issue briefly disrupted credit card and eftpos transactions at some merchants, an ANZ spokesman said. The fault did not affect ATM transactions. “The issue has been resolved and affected merchants should now be back online,” he said. “We would like to apologise to customers for any inconvenience that this has caused.” The problem started about 11.30am and was fixed by 12.14pm. Eftpos company Eftpos Central tweeted just after midday, advising merchants not to try to process ANZ or National cards until the fault had been rectified. Restaurant Velvet Burger posted a Facebook status about 11.45am which said: “ANZ has an outage at the moment which is causing the Grababurger issues. The amount of money the banks make, you’d think they’d have it sewn up.”  – APNZ

Manufacturers’ Association on export issues, including the impact of the exchange rate. The strong currency is seen as the main cause of the consumers’ price index tracking outside the bank’s 1 per cent to 3 per cent annual target band for inflation, and is “directly suppressing inflation on traded goods” and “undermining profitability in export and import competing industries,” Wheeler said. New Zealand’s CPI unexpectedly shrank 0.2 per cent in the final three months of 2012, taking the annual rate of inflation to 0.9 per cent. Mike Jones, currency strategist at Bank of New Zealand, said in a note before the release, the bank has stepped up its currency trad-

ing in December, which marked “the resumption of the passive intervention the bank employed successfully through the 2008 period of currency strength” and that the Reserve Bank “believes the NZD is overvalued”. The bank softened its expectation for a pick-up in inflation, saying it expects economic growth over the coming year to “slowly” bring the CPI back to the target 2 per cent midpoint. An improving global economy and lift in international market sentiment had also contributed to lower bank funding costs, some of which filtered through to local retail interest, Wheeler said. “On balance, it remains appropriate for the OCR to be held at 2.5 per – APNZ cent,” Wheeler said.

he said. Wheeler is facing increasing pressure to use macro-prudential tools, such as limiting loan-to-value ratios or increasing banks’ capital requirements, to deliver looser monetary conditions and take some pressure off the strong New Zealand dollar. The governor has been reluctant to accept this lobbying, saying the tools, which are still under construction, are to protect the country’s financial stability, not influence monetary policy.

A Pakistani girl whose defiance of the Taliban turned her into an international icon is headed toward recovery once she undergoes a final surgery to reconstruct her skull, doctors said yesterday. Dr Dave Rosser of Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital said that 15-year-old Malala Yousufzai had made a “remarkable recovery”. “She’s very lively, she’s got a great sense of humor,” Rosser told journalists at the hospital. “She’s not naive at all about what happened to her and the situation she’s looking forward to in terms of being a highprofile person, and potentially a high-profile target. She’s not naive to any of that, but she remains incredibly determined, incredibly cheerful and incredibly determined to speak for – AP her cause.” 

Kim Dotcom

Kim Dotcom’s new website has received around 150 notices for copyrighted content allegedly being hosted on the service since its launch 10 days ago. The file-sharing and storage business, Mega, went live on January 20 with the internet entrepreneur’s extradition case for alleged copyright violation concerning his previous business Megaupload still hanging over his head. Megaupload was taken down by US Government this time last year, and Dotcom has claimed a team of lawyers scrutinised every aspect of his new business and are con-

vinced it won’t suffer the same fate. One of the key protections that Mega believes will keep it safe is that all files uploaded to the service are encrypted, and its team cannot see what users are sharing or storing. As Mega can claim to have no knowledge of what is being shared, the argument is that the website is legally shielded from responsibility for any swapping and copying of copyrighted material by users. As well as this, Mega provides a system for rights holders to request for content to be taken down if they think their copyright is being infringed. According to an intellectual property lawyer acting for Dotcom, Rick Shera, the

website had received around 150 notices alleging copyright infringement as of Wednesday. Mr Shera said it was usually the case that a cloud-storage provider would not examine what the allegedly infringing content actually was if the notice it received complies with the relevant laws. “Normally you would look at (the notice) and obviously there are provisions for the copyright owner to swear under penalty of perjury in the United States or to swear in New Zealand that the information is correct,” Mr Shera said. He said Mega would comply with the requirements of the law: “If the notices are delivered correctly then it will act on them,” he said.  – APNZ

One in four consumers plan to make a major purchase in the March quarter, up from one in five during the December quarter last year. “Consumers are finally beginning to show signs of spending and at

Play by the rules by swimming pools

Mortgage rates

5.65 % 6.25 %




hong, hot summer often turns home owners’ thoughts to swimming pools.

2 years



While a pool might lie idle for much of the year, for families especially, a home pool can still be a good investment when it comes to keeping children entertained over the summer. The value of a pool, however, extends much further, providing a great focal point for summer entertaining.

2 years

The form your pool can take is as wide as your imagination and as deep as your pocket, but big or small, there are a number of rules surrounding the installation of all pools.

The Fencing of Swimming Pools Act, 1987



by Sue Newman


The rules this act contains exist to protect young children from the danger of drowning in unfenced swimming pools. It does this by requiring owners to fence their pools.

2 years

If your pool has the capability of water depth greater than 400mm (16 inches) then it is required to be fenced in accordance with the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act. Note: this includes blow up and temporary pools. All pools, no matter when they were installed must comply with the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act.


Do pools require a building consent? Swimming Pool and Fencing check list All pool fencing requires building consent, including that around spa pools, and some pools require consent for the construction of the pool itself.

* Height of Fence not less than 1.2m or pool is 1.2m above ground with smooth, vertical sides

Refer to the section on Building Consents for information about applying for building consent. Contact your local council if you have any questions about the information needed for a pool related building consent.

* Gap under fence and gate less than 100mm * Gaps between vertical cladding less than 100mm * Rails at correct height/spacing 900mm between rails

Where the fence must be situated

* Mesh/netting: no opening greater than 10mm for fence 1.2m high or 50mm for fence 1.8m high

The fence must only surround the pool and the area immediately around the pool. This area can only include things used in association with the pool, for example, changing sheds. It must not include things that are not relating to the pool for example, clotheslines, vegetable gardens and children’s play equipment.

* Gate opens outwards * Gate latches automatically * Latch on gate self locking * Top bolts on ranchsliders

Buildings may form part of the pool fence provided they comply with the Act, for example, there must be no opening doors out to the area outside that fenced. Boundary fences may form part of the pool fence provided they meet the requirements of the Act.

* Steps into above ground pools removable if applicable * Doors and windows giving access to pool area comply * Pool area contains only pool equipment

The Council (only) can grant an exemption from meeting the requirements of the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act. Council will only grant an exemption if it is satisfied that the circumstances will not significantly increase the danger to young children.

* Has the pool been given a clearance for Fencing of Swimming Pools Act

8 ways to improve the chances of selling your home 2 Choose your Realtor carefully

With the school holidays over and lives returning to normal, now may be as good a time as any to put your home on the market. Here are some helpful hints on improving the chances of successfully selling your home.

the property as close to your asking price and timescale as possible.

Do your research before choosing an agent. It can be tempting to market a property yourself to save cash, but you should consider how big a task you face in the current market.

1 Get your asking price right

3 Negotiate When dealing with realtors, confirm commission rates and lock-in periods. Most will want a percentage of the sale price. Negotiate on rates and lock in periods to ensure you are getting the best deal from the realtor most suited to your needs.

How will you market your house, do you have the time to show people round, are you a sales person, can you do the negotiating?

This is a tricky market, and putting the right price on your property is vital. Price too high and you risk scaring everyone off; price too low and the buyer will still expect to haggle so you could end up with considerably less than you wanted. Talk to three realtors before deciding on a price. Be careful not to be flattered or greedy when given unrealistic valuations, make sure you understand how they came to their valuation and check similar size house prices in your area to compare your price too.

4 Use your realtor wisely

Choose a realtor with a good recommendation; ask friends and family about their experiences. Quiz them on how they will market your house, will it be advertised locally, will your house be a “property of the week” in the local paper.

Once you have chosen a realtor, let them do the hard work – you will be paying them for it, after all. Ask for advice on how to present the best aspects of your home, what can be done to make your property more saleable. They may have clearer ideas on what people are looking for in your area. Continued on next page

Don’t just choose the one charging the lowest commission: it is more important that the service is good and that they sell

Real Estate Agents “Older” and “Wiser”?

Hamish Niles Property Brokers

Hence the emails to see that each of our salespeople had complied and therefore would be eligible to retain their licence.

by Hamish Niles

Becoming Wiser

For nearly 40 years our Company has always had a philosophy of continuing to up skill and educate our staff and we have had various solicitors, accountants and other professionals keep us informed of the likes of law changes, tax changes alterations to the District Plan etc over the years. So our 10 hours of non-verifiable training was already in place.

Better Real Estate through Continuing Education -The process of buying and selling real estate can be overwhelming and stressful especially when considering the amount of paperwork and negotiations and preparation involved with these transactions. Most sellers in New Zealand still rely on real estate professionals to sell their homes rather than attempting to sell privately.

Male Salespeople- males aged between 50 to 59 equate to 30% of the males and 26% are in the 60 to 69 age bracket with only 6% are aged under 30. 44% of the licensed salespeople in the country are in Auckland and the next region is the Canterbury West Coast region which has 12%. 81% of licenses are salespeople licences, 4% hold branch manager licenses and 15% are Agent licensees – meaning they can own and operate a business.

This is the first year that it became a regulation and I must say that I believe that it has been a huge success – in our Ashburton office our company is in the fortunate position to have 7 of our 12 sales team having been in the industry for 20 years or longer (with one having reached 30 years last month)- and we all found the “Verifiable Training” section both informative and also very stimulating.

The Real Estate Agents Act 2008 was enacted to protect consumers. The compulsory licensing regime under this Act was also designed to protect consumers so that they get to deal with real estate professionals who must comply with strict requirements and professional standards and are required to keep up with continuing education.

Get more for your clients The Ashburton Guardian Real Estate Section is ideal for listings or attracting new vendors.

Our Company did our training in a group format and the content together the exchange of information amongst the group has made us all better equipped to do our job.

Towards the end of last year there was a flurry of emails from the Real Estate Institute to their members advising us to make sure that we had completed our required hours of continuing education.

Talk to one of our experienced team members today.

Phone Desme 307-7974

The new regulations are an excellent improvement to the industry and can only help to lift and improve the standard of real estate salespeople.

A little background - when the new Real Estate Agents Act 2008 came into force one of the requirements was that each year every licensed sales person completes-

Pearce enjoys dream debut Daniel Pearce made a dream debut as a professional on the Charles Tour as he carded a bogey-free seven-under-par 65 in Manawatu to lead round one of the LawnMaster Classic by one shot yesterday. The rookie pro from Ashburton, who recently won the NZPGA Qualifying event in Taupo, made a hot start when he was six under par through his opening seven holes to set the tone for the tournament. From there he held on with some great saves for par midway on his back nine and then added another birdie on the par 5 7th, his 16th, in the balmy morning conditions. Pearce holds a one stroke advantage from Te Anau professional David Klein who opened with a round of six-under-par 66. Hastings professional Leighton James and amateurs Harry Bateman (Royal Wellington) and Steven Kuggeleijn (Lochiel) share third place. Three-time Charles Tour winner Doug Holloway, former New Zealand Amateur finalist Steven Heyes and two-time Charles Tour winner Josh Geary are all in touch after rounds of four-under par 68. But the first day honours of the $40,000 event belonged to Pearce. Also showing he has a cool hand under pressure was Te Anau professional Klein. The one-time winner on the Charles Tour, after he claimed the Taranaki Energy Open in 2012 in a playoff, was pleased to be rewarded for his ball striking. Klein also did his scoring on his front nine, the back nine at Hokowhitu, as he made five birdies in the opening nine holes. He added one more birdie coming home to be firmly in contention. A total of 24 players were under par after round one as they took advantage of the hot and fine conditions. In the women’s field, North Harbour golfer Lita Guo has celebrated her 17th birthday in style as she carded a fourunder par 70 to lead a Charles Tour event for the first time. The Remuera member, who recently claimed a bronze medal at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival in Sydney as part of the NZ mixed team, showed her new-found maturity in the sweltering conditions. In only her second Charles Tour event Guo leads the women’s division by three shots from Chantelle Cassidy (Putaruru) and Sai Ma (North Shore) who opened with rounds of one-under par 73. Guo, who finished third at the NZ Age Group Championships last year at Mangawhai, made four birdies on her back photo tetsuro mitomo 211112-tm-008 nine to be the clear leader. - APNZ Daniel Pearce leads the pack on the first day at Manawatu.

Cachopa grabs another century Auckland batsman Craig Cachopa scored his second hundred in as many matches as his side split the honours with Central Districts on day two of their Plunket Shield match at the Eden Park Outer Oval yesterday. The home side began the morning on 142-3 and Cachopa went about making his third first-class hundred, which backed up his 115 in Auckland’s match against Northern Districts last week. The 21-year-old was eventually dismissed for 145 after he hammered 16 fours and seven sixes, and led Auckland to a healthy 115-run first-innings lead after CD made 233 on Wednesday. Paceman Bevan Small picked up a career-best 5-61 in only his sixth first-class match, while former Black Caps skipper Ross Taylor proved he still has top hands, gobbling up three catches. With a hefty deficit to knock off, Central Districts openers Jamie How and Jeet Raval dug in and both made half centuries as they pulled CD back in to the game. Central closed the day on 1070, eight runs behind with 10 second-innings wickets in hand. In Queenstown, Otago asserted their dominance over Northern Districts on day one of their meeting at the Queenstown Events Centre. Otago won the toss and opted to bowl, and they rolled Northern over for 217 in their first innings as only Daryl Mitchell (60) and lower-order batsman Ish Sodhi (52) offered decent resistance. Former international Ian Butler was a demon with the ball as he took 6-65 from 19.4 overs for Otago, while allrounder Sam Wells claimed 3-40 and spinner Mark Craig bowled eight overs that only conceded nine runs as he picked up the other ND wicket. When Otago went in to bat Aaron Redmond started slowly before he was dismissed for four but fellow opener Hamish Rutherford took up the initia-

• Sir Bob no dope New Zealand golfing great Sir Bob Charles says he had no idea the health supplement he has been taking and promoting for years contained a substance banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency. Deer velvet products have come into the spotlight after Fijian golfer Vijay Singh admitted using deer antler spray. The products contain the “insulin-like growth factorâ€? IGF-1, which is listed on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s 2013 prohibited list. New Zealand company Silberhorn sells a wide range of deer velvet products, promoted by 1963 British Open champion Sir Bob, who has been taking deer velvet for nearly 20 years. He said he had been “totally unawareâ€? that deer velvet contained banned substances, and it had not been - APNZ confirmed to him.

• Friend out for surgery

Peter Fulton was in fine form for Canterbury yesterday, knocking up 94 runs in good time tive and blazed 85 runs from 102 balls. Michael Bracewell added 30 as Otago closed day one on 135-2 and they are in a prime position to construct a big firstinnings lead today if they can be disciplined with the bat. Meanwhile, at the Basin Reserve in Wellington, a useful 10th-wicket partnership between Ryan McCone and Tim Johnston saw Canterbury push to a respectable first-innings total of 329-9 declared against Wellington on day one of their match. The pair added an unbeaten 50 from 48 balls late in the day as McCone (35) and Johnston (30) took advantage of some tired Wellington bowlers who did themselves no favours as they delivered a whopping 19 no balls. Earlier in the day, Peter Fulton made 94 in quick time as the Wellington bowlers shared the wickets around. Wellington then had to come out and face two overs before the end of the day but openers Michael Papps and Josh Brodie survived unscathed and the home side closed play on 1-0.  - APNZ

Warriors hooker Nathan Friend will have more shoulder surgery next month to repair nerve damage, forcing him to miss the start of the club’s 2013 NRL campaign. Club doctor John Mayhew said it was hoped the 152-game veteran would be ready to play in eight to 10 weeks leaving him in line to make his first appearance of the new campaign in April. Friend had surgery in late August after dislocating his right shoulder in the 24th-round match against Penrith. He visited a specialist yesterday to have the injury assessed. “He’ll have a nerve graft next month as a result of damage sustained when he was injured,� Mayhew said. - APNZ

• Campbell ‘positive’ Michael Campbell is hoping to improve his fourth-round performances as he continues his promising start to the European Tour season when he started in the Dubai Desert Classic overnight.The 43-year-old is not about to let last weekend’s Qatar Masters final round hiccup spoil his drive towards a first victory in almost eight years. Campbell remained in contention until the final round at the Doha Golf Club before carding a two-over par 74 to claim a share of 16th place on 10-under par. “Naturally, it was a disappointing way to end the tournament especially after three straight rounds of 68,â€? he told his website “It just seems recently that the fourth and final round of a tournament hasn’t been all that kind to me and that was the scenario last Saturday. But despite that final day I took a lot of positives away from the week.â€? - APNZ

Sexy Beast

Movie Greats, tomorrow 8.05am Retired criminal Gal (Ray Winstone) lives an idyllic life in a Spanish villa with the wife he adores. But his paradise is shattered when a volatile former associate (a stunning turn from Ben Kingsley) turns up, intent on coercing him into a bank job back in London. When Gal refuses, the two engage in a complex, psychological battle. The directorial debut of Jonathon Glazer (who recently made Birth) is a startling, multi-layered effort far removed from the glitzy gangster flicks that make up the majority.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, February 1, 2013


Raikabula keeps team grounded By Daniel Richardson Lote Raikabula has seen the twinkle in his young team-mates’ eyes this week. Playing in the Wellington leg of the sevens world series is the highlight for any New Zealand player and five of Gordon Tietjens’ squad - Luke Masirewa, Sam Dickson, Belgium Tuatagaloa, Rocky Khan and Gillies Kaka - will be making their first appearance in the capital this weekend. Raikabula, who made his maiden appearance in Wellington in 2006, said he had tried to keep his youth-

ful team-mates calm ahead of the event at Westpac Stadium. “I’ve just been telling them to calm down and it’s just another game,” the 29-year-old said. “But you see the excitement in them. “They’re keen to go but I’m just telling them to control that energy and turn it in to a good striking weapon.” Yesterday’s street parade in the heart of Wellington marked the beginning of the festivities for the weekend when New Zealand is always under pressure to deliver a tournament victory. They’ve won at the Cake Tin for

the past two years and Raikabula said the parade just added to the atmosphere. “We get the feedback from all the other players from the other counties and this is the tournament that they always want to play, so it’s awesome,” he said. New Zealand has a healthy lead in the series standings after three legs, and victory this weekend would put the team on the right track towards another world title. They’re in Pool A with England, the US and Spain and Raikabula said the English, who New Zealand meets first this afternoon, would be a huge threat after a disappointing

start to the world series where they sit 13th. “They’ll try to get back on the horse at this tournament so we know that it’s going to be really tough,” Raikabula said. “We are not looking ahead of the second and third game, so we are looking forward to the England game.” The US is a rising power in the sevens game and boasts the quickest man on the circuit in Carlin Isles, and Spain is a sevens rank outsider. Aside from its newcomers to Wellington, New Zealand’s sevens squad offers experience in

• South Island champs The Ashburton Rowing Squad heads back to Lake Ruataniwha tomorrow for the South Island Club Championships. The crews were on the lake a fortnight ago for the wind-affected Canterbury Championships but are hoping for fairer weather this time around. Despite the delays and the inevitable early finish to the regatta the crews put up some positive performances, and will be looking to build on those before their attention turns to secondary school regattas and the lead up to the Maadi Cup.

Raikabula, skipper DJ Forbes, pivot Tomasi Cama, Waikato’s Tim Mikkelson and Crusaders’ outside back Kurt Baker. France and Kenya open the tournament at 1pm today with the finals to be played on Saturday. New Zealand squad: Kurt Baker (Taranaki), Tomasi Cama (Manawatu), Sam Dickson (Canty), DJ Forbes (captain, Counties Manukau), Gillies Kaka (Hawkes Bay), Rocky Khan (Auckland), Ben Lam (Auckland), Luke Masirewa (Waikato), Tim Mikkelson (Waikato), Lote Raikabula (Wellington), David Raikuna (N Harbour), Belgium Tuatagaloa (Canterbury) - APNZ

• Big field expected The Tinwald Cycling Club heads up to Methven on Sunday for the annual Dean Cooksley Memorial. The open grade race is a 45km handicap around the Blue Pub block which usually sees a bumper field. The juniors and division two riders will also have a 15km ride.

Right: Lote Raikabula is a veteran of the New Zealand sevens side.

Youth to the fore in Hawke Cup side

Katie Read and Pepee put in some practise before the National Dressage Championships this weekend.

It’s all about experience By Jonathan Leask Katie Read isn’t expecting much at the National Dressage Championships at McLeans Island this weekend. Taking on experienced adults on horses, the 14-year-old Read on a pony knows she isn’t going to be a world beater, but that’s not what it’s about. “Anything can happen in competition but it would take a lot of anything,” Read said. “The nationals haven’t been in the South Island for a long time and might not back for a long time, so

for me it’s about the experience of competing at the top level.” Until this weekend the South Island championships prior to Christmas were her biggest event, where she excelled winning the Level One Pony on Farview Free Spirit and was the level one young rider champion, as well as taking out level 3 Pony with Pepee. Dressage is about precision and grace, which takes time and effort. Read has been riding Pepee for six months and just as the pair are starting to click, the rider is outgrowing the mount. “I’m getting to be too big for a pony, so sometime this season I

will have to step up to a hack.” Read credits Pepee for helping her development as a rider and although the experienced 13-year-old Pepee has done wonders for Read’s progression and is easily controlled in the ring, the horse can be a handful when it’s off duty. “He is very adept at untying himself. You can’t leave him somewhere roped up for long because he unties the knots. “It’s really embarrassing when you see your horse cantering around outside the ring when you thought it was tied up.” But as long as he plays ball in the ring, Read is happy.

Mid Canterbury opens their Hawke Cup campaign this weekend against Otago Country with a young side. Mid Canterbury’s XI for their first Hawke Cup match of the summer has been influenced by injury and unavailability. “We have been hit by injury and unavailability which is a bit disappointing after how well we went last year,” Mid Canterbury coach Richard Pithey said, “It has meant we basically had to go with who is available and so we have had to call up a few young players.” Bevan Ravenscroft, Jason Morrison and Richard Print are all missing from the bowling attack, forcing Pithey to call in some young replacements. Mid Canterbury under 17 representative Jeremy Punselie will make his senior and Hawke Cup debut joined by fellow young 18-year-old seamers Will Southby and Harry Jones making their Hawke Cup debuts.

By Jonathan Leask A top-two tussle and a big gun battle are the features of Open A grade tennis tomorrow. There was a surprising start to the second half of the season last week following a month’s break between the start of the second round and its second week. After being last in the first round Methven caused the upset when they handed Hampstead their second loss of the summer, Allenton fought off Fairton and Dorie edged out Tinwald on a count back. Allenton eyes up Hampstead in the match of the round. The last time the sides squared off it was the closest result of the season, with Hampstead winning on a count back 60-58 on games, and it could be another thriller. Allenton are two-from-two in the second round, winning four straight games since the loss to Hampstead, while Hampstead have lost two of their last three. Hampstead number one Tom Deeley has been the key to their success also playing every week and only dropping one game,

a three set loss to Fairton’s Peter Leonard. Allenton’s roster may have lacked consistency but it hasn’t affected their results. Ashleigh Leonard has played in every match for Allenton and been a strong presence at three or four, playing some great tennis that saw her become the Gala Cup champion, and she gained some valuable big match experience competing in the New Zealand 16s championship recently. While that was a big battle Leonard, who had to withdraw injured last week, will get the rematch he has eagerly been awaiting- if Tom Deeley he has recovered - when Fairton face Dorie. Rhys Cromie’s unbeaten singles streak continues to stretch but Dorie have lost both of their second round matches and are staring down the barrel a third loss when they face Fairton. Cromie was pushed into a rare third

By Jonathan Leask Mid Canterbury senior cricket turns to Twenty20 tomorrow with the representative team on Hawke Cup duty. The shorter form of the game offers teams that have struggled in recent weeks a chance for a change in fortunes from the change in format, and a shot at some silverware. The round robin competition runs over four weeks this season, with each team having two matches every Saturday, concluding with a final

Tennis Federation’s decision to move it from Beirut, and then Cairo, to New Zealand. Lebanon were due to host the tie but it was moved for security reasons. They then nominated Cairo as a neutral venue but it was eventually shifted to Auckland after further security concerns. “I think it was a really bad decision not to have the match in Lebanon and one that I can’t understand,” Badreddine said. “It is quite safe now. We had another match there recently. I know there are problems in Syria, but not in Lebanon.” King-Turner will kick off the tie when he takes on Lebanon No 2 Michael Massih.

Mid Canterbury will be invaded this weekend by club men from across the South Island wielding their clubs in Tinwald and Ashburton. The South Island Chartered Club’s Golf tournament is being hosted by the Tinwald Golf Club tomorrow and the Ashburton Golf Club on Sunday.

movement in the air but it will settle down and be a good batting wicket, but if you bend your back there is reward for the effort.” Last year Mid Canterbury fell 13 runs short of winning the zone and receiving a Hawke Cup Challenge. “Last year it came down to the final over of the last two day game to determine the zone winner, and we came up 13 runs short of the outright win against Southland, who finished up on top. “The zone again looks to be well contested this year so hopefully we can start with a positive result.” Mid Canterbury play their first game tomorrow and have all four games in four consecutive weekends. So in zone four Otago Country claimed first innings points against Southland and North Otago lost outright to South Canterbury. South Canterbury then lost on first innings to Southland and Otago Country lost to North Otago by nine wickets. Mid Canterbury XI: Ben Ward, Rob Polson, Jono Print, Des Kruger, Matt Winter©, Rhys Phillips, Will Southby, Tom Meyrick, Matt Tait, Harry Jones, Jeremy Punselie. 12th man Scott Maher.

after the last round on February 23. The Tech Sharks have already laid claim to three trophies, locking away the Pritchard Shield, Studholme Shield and hold the Bevan Stroud Memorial Challenge trophy. The Sharks will enter as favourites as the only team to have won the Twenty20 competition and looking for a fifth straight title. Last year they toppled Methven, a two-time runner up, in the final. Methven have only cobbled two wins in the 45 over format this season and along with the Tech Stags, who have one win, will be looking for.

This year features rounds in the country, with Methven and Lauriston hosting matches tomorrow. The Star Old Boys side makes a return to their preferred form of the game, meeting Methven in Methven on Saturday before heading along Line Road to meet Lauriston in round two, with Coldstream swapping places. In the Ashburton Domain the Tech teams square off while Allenton play Fairfield, with the Sharks then facing Fairfield and Allenton up against the Stags.

• Hot times on track Sweltering heat in Southland produced some fast times for the opening session of the BikeNZ national track cycling championships in Invercargill yesterday. The heat was on in the elite men’s 250m time trial final, with Auckland’s Ethan Mitchell claiming back his own New Zealand record in a time of 17.325 seconds ahead of Southland riders Matt Archibold with 17.578 and Eddie Dawkins with 17.917. Otago’s Katie Schofield also broke her own New Zealand record of 19.595secs to secure gold in the elite women’s 250m time trial in a time of 19.326. Southland locals took the other places on the podium, with Stephanie McKenzie claiming silver in 19.730 and Natasha Hansen bronze in 20.211.-APNZ

• Man U extends lead Wayne Rooney’s double helped Manchester United restore their seven-point lead at the top of the English Premier League as they came from behind to beat Southampton 2-1 at Old Trafford yesterday. Southampton took a shock third-minute lead when Michael Carrick’s poor back-pass saw Jay Rodriguez dispossess United goalkeeper David de Gea before he rolled the ball into the net. However, United were only behind for five minutes with Rooney equalising after he was played in by Shinji Kagawa. The England striker made it 2-1 from a yard out in the 27th minute after a Robin van Persie free-kick was headed back across goal by Patrice Evra. Chelsea blew a 2-0 lead as Reading climbed out of the bottom three after supersub Adam Le Fondre scored two late - AFP goals in a 2-2 draw.

Artem Sitak, who is ranked 553rd in the world, will then take on Karim Alayli, who was delayed coming into New Zealand as a result of visa complications. King-Turner will team up with Marcus Daniell for Saturday’s doubles. “The draw has worked out nicely for us,” new New Zealand captain Alistair Hunt said. “They have nothing to lose, so I’ve told my players to go out and play as well as they can on the day. “We want to go out and put them away as quickly and as comfortably as possible.”  - APNZ

Lebanon ‘should be cannon fodder’ The New Zealand Davis Cup tennis team begin their quest to earn immediate promotion back to Asia/Oceania Group I with a tie against Lebanon at North Harbour today, and they should have little trouble dispatching a country that has no players who currently hold a ranking. New Zealand aren’t awash with top tennis talent, with Dan King-Turner the highest ranked in the four-man team at 375, but they start as overwhelming favourites this weekend. The tie begins in controversial circumstances, with Lebanon captain Hussein Badreddine angered at the International

That leaves Robbie Polson and Des Kruger left to lead the pace attack, with Matt Tait the other seam option. “Robbie and Des will have a big role. “They’ll probably be called upon to bowl a lot of overs, try to keep the scoring down and build some pressure. “We have a quality spin combination of Tom Meyrick and Rhys Phillips who will also be looked upon to tie things down. The new blood in the bowling department makes batting line-up go deep. “The young guys are all capable with the bat so we bat right down. If we can put enough runs on the board I think we have a bowling attack that can take wickets.” With runs and wickets required the pitch looks like a livewire after the recent scorching conditions. “We played Canterbury Country on it a few weeks back, and they said it was the best wicket they have met in Ashburton. “There’s pace and bounce but it’s good to bat on. “Early on there might be a bit of

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, February 1, 2013




Hayward out of big show to try and get right but he’s still not 100 per cent, so I wasn’t going to risk it. “Of all the times for it to happen, it’s pretty unfortunate. “It is disappointing not to be heading down to be involved in the event but I had to make the hard decision.” Hayward had scratched Andretti from the showjumping at the South Canterbury North Otago two star show in Waimate last weekend and was hoping to compete on tomorrow, but will now be focused on getting Andretti right for the National Showjumping Championships at McLean’s Island in Christchurch next weekend. While Hayward is disappointed not to be competing against the toughest field in New Zealand history, there are three excited local riders eyeing up their own pay day in the $5000 Pony Grand Prix.

By Jonathan Leask Ashburton’s Susie Hayward has had to withdraw before being involved in the most impressive showjumping line-up ever to compete on New Zealand shores. Ride the Rhythm in Dunedin will boast the strongest line-up of Australian show jumpers ever to compete in New Zealand before, as well as the top New Zealand jumpers, all lured by a prize pool of $120,000 and the added intrigue of competing at the indoor grass venue at the Forsyth Barr Stadium this weekend. However Hayward, and her impressive stallion Andretti, scratched from the competition yesterday. “He pulled a muscle during a collect (for breeding) last week and it hasn’t come right,” Hayward said. “He had every treatment available

Lucinda Askin, Kimberley Bird, Emma Waite are among 12 of the country’s leading pony riders that get their chance to shine in front of the big Dunedin crowd. It will be hotly-contested with 12-year-old Steffi Whittaker (Halswell) looking to continue her unprecedented winning run with Moonlight Glow, notching up her sixth individual win of the season at Waimate last weekend. Once the young riders have put on a show the high fliers take the stage for the big stakes showjumping. Recent FEI World Cup Australian League winner Alison Rowland leads the Aussie onslaught with her starry nine-year-old Brickley Brook Bella, on of several strong riders jumping the ditch. The quality of the Australian contingent is second to none but they will have their work cut out against

an all-star Kiwi line-up including Olympians Katie McVean, Maurice Beatson and Samantha McIntosh, each with two horses apiece, as well as leading South Island hopes Cantabrians Ross Smith, Tegan Fitszimon and Kate Cavanagh. The crowd will also be wowed with the ‘Wall Challenge’ where $70,000 is on the line for anyone that can jump 2.21m, clearing the current New Zealand record by 8cm, with six horses down to compete. The riders then make way for the rhythm, with the Hollies taking to the stage for their sole South Island concert.

Bowls title on the line

Crusaders raring to go “They’ve gone deep into the franchise bush - we’re hoping for a real smorgasbord off the land,” said Matson as he waited for the groups to arrive back from their expeditions. The coaches are confident there will still be some energy to burn tomorrow. “We’ve done a lot of conditioning but there’s nothing like playing,” he said. “We’re only three weeks away from the start of the competition, so we definitely need to get some rugby under the belt.” With several players nursing minor injuries already, two academy players, teenager Shayne Anderson, skipper of the highly successful St Bede’s team a couple of years ago, and James Schrader start on the wings. Matson denied the Zac Guildford rumpus had disrupted the squad. “Not really,” he said. “Clearly he’s close friends with all the people who played with him before, and those players are concerned for a friend.” Todd Blackadder was researching around any potential replacement, but that was dependant on the New Zealand Rugby Union’s final deliberation on the matter, he said. - APNZ

Back from the bush and ready to rock tomorrow - that’s the Crusaders after one of the more offbeat weeks in their history. The players have hitchhiked, hunted, visited gyms and schools, and made surprise visits to good sorts in the Crusaders heartland, as well as preparing for their 2013 opener against the Hurricanes in Timaru. “It’s been brilliant,” said assistant coach Tabai Matson. “It’s amazing when you get people outside their comfort zones.” The squad split into four groups to go to Timaru, Banks Peninsula, the West Coast, and Golden Bay on Sunday. Typical of their activities was George Whitelock and Joel Everson turning up in the franchise’s most remote corner, Ross, to cook up burgers for Sam Viney, a pillar of his local rugby club for more than 50 years. On Tuesday came the Amazing Race - the players had to hitchhike (minus cellphones) to Hanmer via A, B, and C. “It was pretty easy when Dan Carter stuck his thumb out in Greymouth,” said Matson, whose other Coast group members watched him and a couple of other players disappear into an SUV while they waited forlornly up the road. After a 2013 goal-setting session in Hanmer on Wednesday morning, the squad split into six groups - led, inevitably, by the four hunting Whitelock brothers plus Luke Romano and Joe Moody - to forage in the bush (apart from one group who went to Kaikoura for crays) for 24 hours for last night’s dinner.

“I want to kick 70 or 80 goals this season, whichever comes first.”

Ashburton’s Roger Gutberlet will be out to defend his Mid Canterbury men’s Champion of Champions bowls title tomorrow. The club champions from around the district will turnout at the Allenton Bowling Club to vie for supremacy. Defending champion Gutberlet will face some stern opposition, including last year’s Lowry Cup winner Bruce White of Allenton. The women will have a new champion after Linda Boyd became the Rakaia champion, ousting 2012 winner Rosemary Bennett. There is a strong field vying for the crown with former winner Noeline Woods of Hinds and Methven’s Ruth Smith competing, while Tinwald’s Shirley Maw will be looking to add to her champion of champion pairs title. Last weekend’s champion of champion pairs was dominated by Allenton, taking three of the five titles. Graeme Bishop and Alec Crawford took out the senior men’s beating Ashburton’s Gutberlet and Murray Anderson. Maw and Monica Barnes of Tinwald took out the women’s title with a win over Glenda McCosker and Barbara Robinson. Allenton provided both junior titles with Anne Reid and Annette Sargisson in the women’s and Alan Leis and John Bruce in the men’s. The Colts Men was won by Methven’s Ivan Syme and Jim Lattimore.
