Man’s body found BY SUSAN SANDYS

SUSAN.S@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Mystery surrounds the discovery of a body on West Street. Police were last night preparing to move the body of a deceased male from a swampy water run-off area behind Hunting and Fishing near Bunnings Warehouse. “We have found a body, it’s very early days,” Christchurch detective inspector Tom Fitzgerald, who was in Ashburton working on the inquiry, said last night. Police cars and a fire truck were at the scene about 7.30pm, but approaching media were turned away. Mr Fitzgerald spoke to the Guardian at the Ashburton Police Station. He said at this stage the death was “unexplained” and a post mortem will be completed this morning. “We will be working our way through it. We will be moving the body tonight.” An eyewitness reported to the Guardian that a police tent had been erected in the area. Detective senior sergeant Marion Neill would be leading the investigation, and police were to prepare a further media release which they would distribute following the post mortem.

Needy Kiwi family given Prince’s cot Bonny Prince George is back sleeping snugly at Kensington Palace in London but one of New Zealand’s poorest families now has their baby tucked up in a bed fit for a king. The Royal Visit Office said the barely used cot bought for George to sleep in at Government House in Wellington during the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s recent New Zealand tour had gone to a “worthy” home. The office bought pieces of baby furniture to transform one of the many stately bedrooms at the Governor-General’s official residence into a royal nursery. “The few items we had have been donated anonymously in the community to those in need,” said a spokesman for the office.

Monaco’s Prince Albert to have heir Princess Charlene, the South African wife of Monaco monarch Prince Albert II, is expecting the couple’s first child at the end of the year, the royal palace has announced. “Prince Albert and Princess Charlene have the immense joy to announce they are expecting a happy event,” the palace said. “The birth is due at the end of the year.” Charlene, 36, is a former Olympic swimmer who married Albert in 2011. The new baby, who will replace Albert’s sister Caroline as the next in line to the Monaco throne, will be Charlene’s first child. Albert already has two recognised children, daughter Jazmin, who is now 22, and a younger son, Alexandre.

Gangnam Style sets YouTube record South Korean pop phenomenon Psy galloped into the record books as his Gangnam Style mega hit smashed through the two-billion mark on YouTube. It was a first at YouTube, where Baby by Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber in February became the only other video in the billion-view club. Gangnam Style at the OfficialPsy channel has now had nearly twice the amount of viewers, according to figures from the northern California-based YouTube. The video became a global sensation and fuelled a South Korean “K-Pop” trend after it was uploaded to YouTube in July 2012. “Two billion views; they are very honourable and very burdensome numbers,” Psy said in a statement YouTube shared. “With the appreciation, I will come back soon with more joyful contents!” His follow-up song Gentleman set the record for the most YouTube views in a single day - 38 million on April 14, 2013.

■ TRIPLE FATALITY

A Dutch tourist running a stop sign resulted in a horrific crash at the intersection of Somerton Road and Thompsons Track.

Three killed near Rakaia By SuSan SandyS

susan.s@theguardian.co.nz

Two Christchurch families have been ripped apart by the deaths of two 12-year-olds and one of their mothers near Rakaia on Saturday. The trio died in a crash which has been among the worst dealt with by Mid Canterbury firefighters, some of whom have already received counselling. Twelve-year-old Ella Yasmin Summerfield, her mother Sally Vanessa Summerfield, 49, and friend Abigail Ann Hone, also 12, were on their way to see other family friends at Lake Ohau for the long weekend. The father was driving, and the family group were in a Volvo heading west towards Methven on Thompsons Track. A 52-year-old Dutch tourist driving in a northerly direction on Somerton Road in a Subaru ran a stop sign and ploughed into their car’s left side. Police said both vehicles were travelling within the posted speed limit of 100 kilometres per hour, and all occupants were wearing seatbelts. Due to the nature of the crash, the speed and point of impact, it would appear that the victims died instantly.

The driver, Ms Summerfield’s 48-year-old husband Shane, was airlifted to Christchurch Hospital with serious injuries, where he remained in a serious but stable condition yesterday. The tourist was admitted to Ashburton Hospital, but discharged yesterday. He has been charged with three counts of careless use of a vehicle causing death and one charge of careless use of a vehicle causing injury. He will ap-

pear in Christchurch District Court on Tuesday “He’s aware of the magnitude of what’s occurred,” Ashburton senior sergeant Scott Banfield said yesterday. He added all drivers needed to have “a heightened situational awareness and be aware of the environment you are driving in”. “Be alert for stop-sign or giveway controlled intersections, especially on unfamiliar rural roads, wear your seatbelt and

keep your speed down,” Mr Banfield said. He wanted to thank passing members of the public who assisted emergency services at the scene. Rakaia Volunteer Fire Brigade chief Donald Dunlea described the crash as “an absolute tragedy”. Members used cutting equipment to extract the deceased victims from the wreckage. Members were at the scene for

six hours, and one of the first things Mr Dunlea did when he got back to the station was organise for counsellors to visit the next day. “Any death, it’s pretty hard to handle, it’s also worse when there’s kids involved in it,” Mr Dunlea said. “They were just at the wrong place at the wrong time.” Many of the fire brigade members had children or, as in his case, grandchildren, around the same age as the young victims. Members of the New Zealand Fire Service’s stress management team travelled from Christchurch to Rakaia and talked to brigade members as a group at the station yesterday morning. Team members talked to the firefighters about how they felt, and made one-on-one counselling available. Ashburton Volunteer Fire Brigade members also attended the fatal crash. Chief Alan Burgess said the team’s counsellors would be individually in touch with each of the members who had attended the crash. He had personally used such counselling services following call-outs in the past, and said it was a very worthwhile service.

■ TOP AWARD

■ QUEEN’S BIRTHDAY HONOURS 2014

Carter ‘blown away’

Racing stalwart honoured

By Patrice Dougan

Helen Pope can add some new letters to her name today.

By Michelle nelson michelle.n@theguardian.co.nz

An Ashburton woman who has dedicated more than 40 years to harness racing is the only Mid Canterbury recipient on today’s Queen’s Birthday Honours list. Helen Pope was named as a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM) for services to harness racing. Characteristically modest, Mrs Pope was sure there must be others more deserving of the honour. However, looking at her long list of achievements and contributions to harness racing, it’s difficult to think who they might be.

One of three daughters of the late trotting legend Bill Doyle, Mrs Pope’s induction into the harness racing industry began as a child. In the years since she has been involved in almost every aspect, from owning a string of winners, including 1995 Interdominians winner Call Me Now, to high-level administrative positions. Mrs Pope broke new ground in 1981, when she became the first woman to be elected onto the Ashburton Trotting Club committee. “You had to be voted in back then,” she said. During her 24-year stint Mrs

Pope became just the second woman president of a harness racing club. She capped that achievement off in 1997, when she became the first woman on the Harness Racing New Zealand board, and was a representative on the equine industry training board for six years. Her dedication has already been recognised within her own community and further afield. She was named Mid Canterbury Sports Personality of the Year, and presented with the Robilliard Trophy in 2011. Mrs Pope and Jack Carmichael became the first inductees into the Maurice Holmes Hall

of Fame at Addington Raceway in 2006. On each occasion Mrs Pope was surprised – even shocked, to have been singled out for recognition. And when news of the latest accolade arrived in the mailbox, the response was the same. “I couldn’t believe it, there must be a lot of people around who are more worthy of it,” she said. “Of course I’m very honoured, and very humbled, but I’m very surprised. “I have no idea who nominated me.” As for keeping quiet with the news until today, Mrs Pope admitted sharing it with her sons.

Retired businessman and engineer Sir Ron Carter says he was “totally blown away” when he heard he was to receive the country’s top honour in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours. Sir Ron, who sat on the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Canterbury earthquakes, has been made a member of the Order of New Zealand for his services to the country. It’s New Zealand’s top honour and limited to a maximum of 20 living people at a time. The accolade adds to the knighthood he received in 1998. “It was the last thing I expected,” the 78-year-old said of the Order of New Zealand. “I had never conceived that I would join that list of quite illustrious people, and therefore I’m deeply honoured by being ranked in conjunction with them.” He said it came as a surprise to receive a second honour after being “amazed when I got the first one”. “However, people seem to want to honour what I’ve been doing, so that’s very, very nice to know,” he said, speaking from his St Heliers, Auckland, home. He had no idea who nominated him, but said it wouldn’t change him. “What I’d like to do is carry on the way I’ve been travelling for the past many years. I’m very comfortable with my way of life,” he said. - APNZ

Broadcaster, children’s author among recipients By Patrice Dougan A veteran radio broadcaster, a children’s author, sportsmen and members of the judiciary are among those recognised in this year’s Queen’s Birthday honours. The list of 180 people includes three new dames, four knights and one appointment to the prestigious Order of New Zealand. Retired engineer and businessman Sir Ron Carter said he was “totally blown away” by his appointment to the Order of New Zealand for services to his country.

It is New Zealand’s top honour and is limited to a maximum of 20 living people at a time. Geoff Robinson, the voice of Radio New Zealand’s Morning Report for 30 years, has been made an officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to public broadcasting. Children’s author Betty Gilderdale, famous for The Little Yellow Digger series, has been made a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to children’s literature. Basketballer Dillon Boucher and softball player Eddie Kohlhase were also made members of the New Zealand Order of

Merit for their services to their sports and All Blacks manager Darren Shand was made an officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to rugby. Sir Graeme Avery has been made a knight for his services to business and sport, mixing his passion for those two subjects over decades of involvement in New Zealand athletics, the wine industry and the medical publishing field. Former Auckland University vice-chancellor John Hood has also been knighted for his services to tertiary education. Helicopter pilot Richard Hayes was knighted for his ser-

vices to Search and Rescue and the community, and entrepreneur Robert Stewart was made a knight for his services to manufacturing and the community. Two members of the judiciary, Lowell Goddard QC and Susan Glazebrook QC have also been made dames. Dame Lowell, recognised for her services to the law, is believed to be the first person of Maori descent to be appointed a judge of the High Court, and in 1988, she became the first woman in New Zealand to be appointed a Queen’s Counsel. Dame Susan was appointed as a Supreme Court judge two

years ago, and has held numerous leadership roles in national and regional organisations in the Pacific. She has been recognised for services to the judiciary. Former Police Commissioner Peter Marshall has been made a companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to the police and community. Man Booker Prize winner Eleanor Catton’s publisher Fergus Barrowman has been appointed a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to publishing after 30 years with the Victoria University Press. - APNZ

In brief

■ ASHBURTON DRIVEWAY ACCIDENT

On the road to recovery By SuSan SandyS

susan.s@theguardian.co.nz

Every mother’s worst nightmare unfolded before the eyes of Jessica Hayman last Wednesday, as she walked her three-year-old son home. The pair were on their way back from visiting the Netherby shopping centre a few blocks away, when Ms Hayman heard screaming. Her son Xavier had been just a couple of metres ahead of her on his small bicycle with training wheels. As they walked and rode on the footpath, momentarily she had looked down, but was soon looking up in terror to see it was Xavier who was screaming, and his leg was trapped under a car. “His legs were under the wheel, I was yelling and screaming at the lady. I said reverse, but she went back up her drive so she ran over his other leg.” The car had run over Xavier while being reversed from a residential driveway across the footpath. A passing female motorist, a man who was a nurse and a woman who worked at the Four Square all rushed to help. An ambulance took Xavier to hospital, where X-rays on his legs showed no breaks or fractures. Bruising and scratches meant he was sore, however, he was walking by the next day. Xavier is now back home and back to himself, and likes to show off his X-rays to visitors. “He was more worried about his bike than himself,” Ms Hayman said. Ms Hayman, who coincidentally appeared in the Ashburton Guardian the day following the accident in an unrelated article on the New Zealand deprivation index, said she hoped her experience served as a reminder for motorists to stop and look before reversing from driveways onto footpaths, and to reverse over footpaths slowly. Ideally, motorists should back into their driveways, so they could drive out of them front-facing, she said. She did not however hold any blame towards the driver, who had not lived at the address but had been visiting a friend, and did not want to see her charged. “She was just really shocked as well,” Ms Hayman said. In the meantime, the incident is one Ms Hayman may very well wish to forget, but most likely never will. “I’m sort of not dealing with it at the moment, I don’t know how to deal with it,” she said.

A 14-year-old boy died during a motocross event in Canterbury yesterday when he crashed on a steep incline and suffered head injuries. Trent Haywood, from Tauranga, was competing at the Michael Godfrey Memorial Motocross event, at Omihi near Waipara in North Canterbury. Initial inquiries indicated that Trent was competing in a race shortly before 11am when he appeared to lose control of his motorcycle, police said. He crashed down a steep incline, suffering serious head injuries. He was treated by ambulance staff but died at the scene. - APNZ

Search and rescue A German tourist swam from Tauranga Harbour to Mount Maunganui after a night on the town and a search and rescue operation was launched when police had concerns for his wellbeing. Police said the man and a friend were socialising in Tauranga City when they got in to the water at Dive Crescent and decided to swim to Mount Maunganui. His friend turned back and headed for shore where he called police, who alerted Coastguard and Search and Rescue. The tourist was found on Hewletts Road around 5.10am. He was wet and cold after completing the crossing in the dark. When confronted by police, the men said they had been followed and jumped in to the water for safety. However, police said they could find no evidence of this. - APNZ

decade. NZ Post is trying to contact thousands of former staff who will be owed money for working overtime or unrostered call-backs since 2004. In the letter to former employees, chief financial officer Mark Yeoman said the back payments were the result of a 2012 court ruling on the interpretation of the Holidays Act 2003. It related to incorrect payroll calculations when staff

took sick leave, bereavement leave, union leave, alternative leave and public holidays since April 2004. Some workers would be getting several thousand dollars but the average pay-out was expected to be $588. Postal Workers’ Union of Aotearoa spokesman Graeme Clarke said most of those owed money would be unaware of the windfall and not realise

they had to apply to NZ Post. Many former staff had moved house so there was concern letters and the money would never reach them. NZ Post will place advertisements asking former staff to get in touch. Current employees will see their share of the $11.7 million backpay for existing staff being deposited into their bank accounts within the next eight weeks. - APNZ

Money contestants raised in the Miss Junior New Zealand pageant has not been paid to charities it was collected for. The beauty pageant’s website stated contestants raised $21,418.70 for charities. These included the Child Cancer Foundation, Horse Haven, Variety, Kids Can and Starship Foundation, according to the pageant’s Facebook page. Each of those charities confirmed to the Herald on Sunday that they had no record of receiving money from Miss Junior New Zealand. Parents contacted the Herald on Sunday this week, concerned about where the money their children raised had ended up. Girls and young women aged between 10 and 19 raised funds. - APNZ

Mt Hutt Ski Area is pumping out up to 300 tonnes of snow per hour as it gears up for opening on Saturday. “We are really ripping into the snowmaking now,” manager James McKenzie said last night. Each night the huge volumes could be achieved as the temperature dropped. And during the day, snowmakers had been able to capitalise on “bizarre” conditions, which had seen snowmaking continue despite the air temperature being above freezing at two degrees. “The humidity is so low, we have such dry conditions, it’s perfect,” Mr McKenzie said.

Mounds of snow up to over one metre depth had been created, as snowmaking had continued non-stop for four days. A new bore had increased capacity this year, as the ski area reservoir could be quickly refilled. It was the first time in Mr McKenzie’s eight years at Mt Hutt that the ski area would probably have to open entirely on manmade snow. It was all a matter of timing when it came to natural snow, and at this stage it looked like the next significant fall would be after opening weekend. It appeared the quad chairlift would be able to open for the weekend.

■ CARBON POLLUTION

■ EKETAHUNA CRASH

Greens to tax companies Man crashes into pole for their carbon pollution after fight with partner By ISaac davISon The Green Party has unveiled a bold plan to tax companies for their carbon pollution, though farmers would be charged halfprice and all revenue would be returned to households and businesses. The party has completely lost hope in the “failed” Emissions Trading Scheme and now wants to replace it with a carbon tax in order to ramp up New Zealand’s efforts to combat climate change. In a speech at the Green party AGM yesterday afternoon, co-leader Russel Norman said climate change was the “biggest issue of our time”, if not “the biggest issue of all time”. “Climate change is not war. It’s not a plague. It’s not a global financial crisis. There is nothing to compare it to in human history,” he told delegates. “We have no points of reference. Because of this, understanding what we’re seeing and taking action is a challenge, both politically and psychologically.” He said Government’s failure to grasp the problem had left New Zealand exposed. If elected, Greens want to charge all sectors except agriculture $25 per tonne on C02 equivalent emissions.

Farmers would be charged $12.50 per tonne and forestry, which helps absorb carbon pollution, would be credited at a rate of $12.50 per tonne. Sheep and lamb farming would initially be exempt from a carbon tax. All of the revenue raised from the carbon charge would be returned to families and businesses. All individual income under $2000 would be tax-free and companies would get a 1 per cent tax cut. The carbon tax would be expected to raise the cost of petrol, food and electricity bills. Once the increased costs of companies passing on the tax were taken into account, Greens estimated that households would be $319 better off every year. The cost of a new independent Climate Commission, which would advise government on carbon pricing, would be funded by the savings from cutting the ETS. At present, companies buy carbon credits through the ETS to cover the costs of their pollution. Agriculture is excluded from the scheme and heavy polluters get up to 90 per cent of their credits free of charge. Greens felt the ETS was now useless because farmers created roughly half of all car-

bon emissions and cheap foreign credits had undermined the market. The price of New Zealand carbon units had fallen from $25 to $5, which gave less incentive for companies to switch to low-carbon technology. Dr Norman said climate change was already costing New Zealanders, pointing to $174 million in insurance payouts for weather-related events and $1.6 billion in damage from drought in the first five months of last year. He also noted that 30 jobs had been lost at Fox Glacier because ice retreat caused by increased warming meant it could only be reached by helicopter, not by walking. The carbon tax would cost New Zealand industry around $1.1 billion a year. The revenue would be divided into tax breaks for companies ($250 million), income tax cuts ($641 million), and credits for forestry ($186 million). Analysis by economic consultancy BERL said increased costs of fuel and electricity were likely to be passed on to consumers “with little impact on the bottom lines of these industries”. Consumers could expect to pay more in many areas under the proposed scheme. - APNZ

A 36-year-old Eketahuna man died when he crashed into a power pole after an apparent fight with his partner at the Eketahuna Rugby Club on Saturday night. Adrian James Ihaka, or “AJ” as many knew him, drove away from the clubrooms, crashing into the pole on the corner of Herbert Street and Alfredton Road, just 600 metres from the club. Club president Dennis Dougherty said Mr Ihaka was a former player for the senior reserves and had been at a “minifunction” at the clubrooms as part of the club’s 125-year jubilee celebrations before the crash. Mr Dougherty and hundreds of others were not at the clubrooms but at the jubilee dinner at the Eketahuna Community Centre. The guest speakers had just finished their speeches when the crash happened about 10.30pm, cutting power to the town. Mr Dougherty said the bar staff at the clubrooms had told him Mr Ihaka had “a disagreement over a domestic arrangement” with his partner and drove away erratically. The staff said Mr Ihaka was angry, got in his car, fishtailed out of the entrance, blew out two tyres and left. People living in the area wit-

nessed the crash and a volunteer firefighter made the 111 call. Police, fire and ambulance crew attended the scene but Mr Ihaka, the only occupant in the car, had been thrown from the car and could not be saved. “First aid was administered to the man...however he was pronounced dead at the scene,” said Senior Sergeant Kris Burbery, Acting Central District Road Policing Manager. He said initial indications suggested alcohol and speed were two factors that caused the “tragic and totally preventable crash”. Mr Dougherty said bar staff had said Mr Ihaka did not seem intoxicated and wasn’t served any alcohol until two hours before he left in his car. He said the Herbert Street and Alfredton Road corner could be dangerous especially if someone was driving in the state that Mr Ihaka was in. The Serious Crash Unit have launched an investigation into the crash and have conducted a scene examination. Mr Ihaka leaves behind three children including two sons who play for the club. He was the fifth person to die on the roads during the Queen’s Birthday road toll period. - APNZ

■ LEGAL HIGHS IN ASHBURTON

In brief

Council LAPP policy ‘pointless’ By Myles HuMe

Myles.h@theguardian.co.nz

The owner of the defunct Rakaia legal highs store says the council’s draft LAPP policy is pointless and is only a ploy to flush retailers out of the district. Adult Thingz owner Garry Davies was reacting to Ashburton district councillors adopting the draft Local Approved Products Policy (LAPP) this week which will limit legal high retailers to the Ashburton CBD if the public supports the move. The LAPP would also ban synthetic drug retailers from setting up shop 100 metres from another store and 50m from education centres, resi-

dential properties and spaces used by the public. Mr Davies worked to dispel all reasoning for the council’s LAPP, which it claims “will protect the interests of the district”. “Having retailers in the CBD so they are close to emergency services? All the time I have been operating I’ve never needed emergency services for those who have purchased products,” he said. “Preventing crime by having it in the CBD? Just look at a store in Manukau, their store was raided in broad daylight.” Mr Davies said there appeared to be minimal restrictions regarding the location of alcohol outlets in the district,

and legal highs were no different. Since the government made an unexpected U-turn, forcing outlets to pull all psychoactive products from the shelves until they are proven safe, Mr Davies has lost significant income and setting up shop in the Ashburton CBD would be an impossible task when the products return to sale. “I believe it’s just a way to get us out of town, there’s no logic to it. One of the problems is I will have to buy in the CBD and they are already making sure no landlord rents to a (legal high shop) owner. I tried a while ago but got told I wasn’t allowed to even when they were legal.” Council environmental ser-

vices group manager Jane Donaldson said although there was a recent amendment to the act to remove products from sale, it has not changed council’s need for a policy. “It is likely that some of these products will return to shelves at some point next year, and council needs to be ready for when that happens with a policy saying where these stores can be located,” she said. “If we don’t have a policy, stores will be able to establish anywhere in the district as long as they meet District Plan requirements and comply with the act,” said Ms Donaldson. Mr Davies said he would be compiling a submission before the June 30 deadline.

Crash victim dies A woman whose vehicle was hit head-on by another travelling the wrong way on Auckland’s southern motorway on Friday morning has died. Karen Yin Yong, 49, of Mount Wellington, died at Auckland Hospital surrounded by family after her life support was switched off. Ms Yong’s car was hit by another vehicle travelling the wrong way on the southern motorway about 12.40am on Friday. - APNZ

Victim named The woman killed in a crash near Whitianga on Friday night has been named as Auckland woman Robyn Eilleen Derrick. Police said the crash was still being investigated. Ms Derrick, 52, was a passenger in a four-wheel drive involved in a collision with a campervan. The driver of the 4WD was seriously injured and taken to Auckland Hospital. Two people travelling in the campervan were also injured and taken to Thames Hospital. - APNZ

Blessie remembered

■ SEQUENCE BALLROOM DANCE WEEKEND

Thousands of people gathered in Birkdale on Saturday night to light candles and remember Blessie Gotingco. The 56-year-old woman went missing last Saturday night after getting off a bus a few hundred metres from her home on Salisbury Road, Birkdale. Her body was found in bush at the BirkdaleGlenfield Cemetery two days later and a 27-year-old man has been charged with murdering her. More than 2000 people on Saturday night marched through the streets of Mrs Gotingco’s neighbourhood. - APNZ

MH370 search A Kiwi who has 15 years’ experience in ocean searches could be leading the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. Rob McCallum led the search for Air France flight 447 in 2011 and runs a company specialised in deep water search and scanning based in the United States. He has said his team would find the missing plane. The plane has been missing since March 8 when it vanished between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing with 239 passengers on board. An area of the Southern Indian Ocean that has been the focus of the search for the plane has been ruled out as the final location of the plane. Australian official have so far managed the search, but commercial specialists will be handed over the search by tender this week. - APNZ

Dancers twirl their way around Tinwald hall About 110 people from around the country stepped and twirled their way around the Tinwald Hall at the weekend. It was the sequence ballroom dance weekend, held every second year by the Melody Dance Group of Ashburton. Founding members Alastair

and Noeline Mackenzie, who helped establish the group about 20 years ago, said it had been a fantastic weekend. “It was great, it’s really nice to see everybody doing the same thing and a hall full of people, it’s not easy to get nowadays,” Mrs Mackenzie said.

About 130 people filled the hall on Saturday night and returned for a day of dancing yesterday. It was just as much about competing as it was about catching up with dancers who knew each other from around the country and meeting new people.

Mr and Mrs Mackenzie had been dancing together since they were teenagers, having a break from it as they brought up children. “If you learn it and it’s embedded in you, then we just never lost it,” Mrs Mackenzie said.

Surprise guest A marathon 40-hour gaming session for charity got a surprise star guest when Kim Dotcom turned up to participate. The team behind Hunger Drive have been gaming since 8am on Saturday morning and live-streaming the event to raise money for World Vision. The 10 gamers have been inviting people to play with them online, join their chats and watch the event live while donating to World Vision. On a whim, organiser Jay Adams sent a tweet out to Kim Dotcom, inviting him to come and join them at their gaming headquarters on the North Shore. - APNZ

Harre adds direction to alliance Coen Lammers EDITOR

T

he upcoming national election got a bit spicier last week with former Alliance leader Laila Harre joining the improbable partnership of Kim Dotcom and Hone Harawira. Both Mr Harawira and Dotcom seem to share the desire to rock the boat, but the arrival of political veteran Ms Harre has caught the other left-wing parties off-guard. Before Ms Harre’s announcement, commentators were unclear where the Mana-Dotcom coalition would fit on the political spectrum, but the former Alliance leader and Greens strategist is firmly entrenched at the far left. Ms Harre has a long history in left-wing politics and trade unions, fighting tirelessly for the underprivileged. In that context, she will have a lot to share with Mr Harawira, but his awkward comments to reiterate that he was still in charge already raises questions about a possible power struggle. Not too many regular voters in Mid Canterbury will be concerned about this development, but like the rest of New Zealand, this district has 13,000 eligible voters who did not vote in the last elections. Mr Harawira and Ms Harre hope that the unorthodox and flamboyant Internet Party will appeal to the younger, disenfranchised voters. Ms Harre’s environmental and economic views could also draw votes from the Greens and Labour and it would have been intriguing to hear what her Greens friends had to say behind closed doors after last week’s bombshell announcement. The coalition with Mana is a masterstroke to get Mr Dotcom’s cronies into parliament as they are highly unlikely to reach the five per cent threshold, but it hinges on Mr Harawira defending his Tai Tokerau seat. If he does, Ms Harre could return to the Beehive with a small posse, and if they convince enough new anti-National voters to get out of bed on September 20, she could play a key role in a left-wing Government. Finally, Mr Dotcom would have accomplished his goal and have his allies at the cabinet table.

Sex offender I agree with the concerned mother. The sex offender shouldn’t be allowed near a preschool or school. And if he can reoffend then why is he out. What, are they going to wait for something to happen to a child before they do anything about it. It’s too late once he has done it again. This place is getting worse and I don’t think the police have thought about this. You thought the police would have more common-sense. People shouldn’t have to live in fear. Courtney Croll

eeping ourselves and our families healthy is one of the most important things for Kiwis, but if we do become sick, we want to know we have a reliable public health service to fall back on. A strong public health service gives families peace of mind and it’s been a priority of the National-led Government. Despite incredible economic challenges, we have continued to invest strongly in public health, more than ever before. We’ve invested an additional $3.34 billion of new operating and capital funding into health in the past five years and next year our public health services budget will reach a record $15.6 billion. We’re making each dollar go further – over the past five years record numbers of New Zealanders have received the operations they need, faster than ever before. Forty thousand more patients now receive elective surgery each year. Budget 2014 includes $110 million of investment to build on this success and will mean even more Kiwis will benefit from hip and knee replacements, and other elective surgery and they will get it sooner. Elective surgery makes a real difference to patients and their families – it reduces pain, restores independence, and improves quality of life. We are committed to moving focus from the back office to the frontline. Latest data from the Ministry of Health shows record numbers of doctors and nurses at the bedside caring for patients

A strong public health service gives families peace of mind and it’s been a priority of the National-led Government.

Over the past five years record numbers of New Zealanders have received the operations they need, faster than ever before

in our public hospitals. Since 2008 over 1300 more doctors and 3000 more nurses have entered our health workforce. Without their care, compassion and commitment, we wouldn’t be able to deliver quality health services. No parent should be put off getting medical assistance for

their young children because of cost. National made sure undersixes can go to the doctor for free, any time of the day or night, and Budget 2014 invests $90 million to extend this to their older brothers and sisters as well. More than 400,000 primary school-aged children and their families are expected to benefit

including those enrolled at Mid Canterbury’s seven general practices. Protecting and growing the public health service for New Zealand families is part of our priority to deliver better public services. This Government has provided not only record funding, but record results. This is what careful financial management can deliver to Kiwi families. There’s always more to do, and we will continue to invest in our health services as part of our commitment to deliver better, sooner, more convenient healthcare for New Zealand families. Jo Goodhew is the MP for the Rangitata electorate

Lost thief calls police A man who stole a GPS system was arrested after he called police to ask them for help because he was lost, Polk County Sheriff’s Office has said. Andrew James Joffe was unaware a warrant had been issued for his arrest when he contacted Polk City Police in Florida. An open warrant for driving with a suspended or revoked licence had already been issued for his arrest. When deputies looked through Joffe’s bag, they discovered the stolen goods and found the GPS was turned on and the ‘home address’ was programmed in. The address matched the home in Davenport, and officers determined the GPS belonged to the victim of a burglary - who was missing her GPS device. - The Independent

US soldier freed from captivity By Julie Pace and lolita c. Baldor The only American soldier held prisoner in Afghanistan has been freed by the Taliban in exchange for the release of five Afghan detainees from the US prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Obama administration officials said. Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl was handed over to US special forces by the Taliban in an area of eastern Afghanistan near the Pakistan border. In a statement, the Taliban said Bergdahl was handed over on the outskirts of Khost province. Officials said the exchange was not violent and the 28-year-

old Bergdahl was in good condition and able to walk. “While Bowe was gone, he was never forgotten,” President Barack Obama said in a statement from the White House Rose Garden, where he was joined by Bergdahl’s parents. “The United States of America does not ever leave our men and women in uniform behind.” The handover followed indirect negotiations between the US and the Taliban, with the government of Qatar serving as the go-between. Qatar is taking custody of the five Afghan detainees that had been held at Guantanamo Bay. According to a senior defence official travelling with Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel in Sin-

gapore, once Bergdahl climbed onto the noisy helicopter he took a pen and wrote on a paper plate, the letters “SF?” — asking the troops if they were special operations forces. They shouted back at him over the roar of the rotors: “Yes, we’ve been looking for you for a long time.” Then, according to the official, Bergdahl broke down and cried. Bergdahl is believed to have been held by the Haqqani network since June 30, 2009. The network operates in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region and has been one of the deadliest threats to US troops in the war. The network, which the State

Department designated as a foreign terrorist organization in 2012, claims allegiance to the Afghan Taliban, yet operates with some degree of autonomy. Officials said Bergdahl was transferred to Bagram Air Field, the main US base in Afghanistan, for medical evaluations. A defence official said he would be sent to Germany for additional care before eventually returning to the United States. The defence official said Bergdhal was tentatively scheduled to go to the San Antonio Military Medical Center where he would be reunited with his family. - AP

Deaths ‘could be double murder-suicide’ The deaths of a mother and her two children in Darwin could be a double murder-suicide, police say. The body of a woman, 46, was discovered about 50 metres from a house on a half-hectare block on Saturday morning by the property owner, who called St John ambulance crews and police. The bodies of her 11-yearold son and seven-year-old daughter, were found inside a

nearby tent at the Jingili property. Detective Acting Superintendent Lee Morgan of the NT Police says officers are keeping an open mind. “We’re considering this could be a triple murder. We’re also very conscious of the fact it could be a double homicide and a suicide,” Supt Morgan told AAP. Two knives found on the ground near the mother are be-

ing tested for DNA evidence. Police are not revealing the nature of the injuries. Police are waiting on autopsy results expected to be completed within the next 24 to 48 hours to determine the cause of death, he said. Supt Morgan said it is now believed the deaths could have occurred as far back as Tuesday. “Given there was some serious decomposition of the bod-

ies, we’d probably put it between Tuesday afternoon and Thursday lunchtime,” he said. Police have established the mother did not have any known contact with anyone after Tuesday afternoon. Supt Morgan said there were no suspects yet. He said the children had different fathers, neither of whom are suspects. He urged any witnesses to contact police. -AAP

A rare collection of first edition comic books featuring inconic heroes Superman, Batman and Flash are to be auctioned in the US. Kentucky insurance executive John Wise decided it was time to sell the collection he’s been accumulating over three decades. “I think it’s a good timing for the market, and good timing for me at age 62,” said Wise. “It’s not like I’m not going to take them with me.” He is auctioning about 175 comics individually, and online bidders have already committed about a half-million dollars. Among the offerings is a pristine issue of Flash Comics No. 1 from 1940. - AP

Woman ‘to be freed’ A woman sentenced to death in Sudan after marrying a Christian may be released within days, according to reports. A senior Khartoum official has told the BBC that Meriam Ibrahim will be freed following worldwide protests about her treatment. The 27-yearold gave birth to a daughter last week in her cell. Ibrahim was raised a Christian by her mother and has refused to renounce the faith. Her Christian marriage was annulled and she was sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery and death by hanging for renouncing Islam. - PA

Troops deployed Thailand’s army is deploying thousands of troops and police officers across Bangkok to stop protesters from gathering to rally against the country’s May 22 coup.

US-China square off China’s aggressive moves to claim jurisdiction over land and sky in the Asia-Pacific risk undermining peace and security in the region and beyond, US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel said. Beijing scoffed at the “groundless” charges. Hagel told an international security conference the United States “will not look the other way” when China and others try to restrict navigation or ignore international rules and standards. China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea are destabilising the region, he added. - AP

In most corners of the world, an Ashburton person can be found. So the Guardian’s Erin Tasker decided to track some of them down. This week it’s Kim Gatenby who is a beautician and holistic therapist who lives in England’s Yorkshire Dales.

Surrounded by history in the Dales

Ashburton abroad

with Kim Gatenby in England

W

hen foot and mouth disease broke out in England, Ashburton girl Kim Gatenby (nee Wesche) had no idea the impact it would have on her future. The outbreak prompted a young English farmer called Stuart to head to New Zealand to work, where he would meet Kim, who would one day become his wife. The foot and mouth outbreak saw the herd Stuart and his father had reared and milked shot as part of a contagious cull in the area, despite not ever having the disease. Stuart then lost his father to a heart attack they put down to stress after the cull. So Stuart decided he needed to get away and he’d always dreamt of going to New Zealand. He took the plunge and spent 2001 milking cows in New Zealand. It was while here that he met Kim. Tinwald born and raised, Kim worked at Tinwald Supervalue after leaving school and spent a month in Australia before she found herself milking cows in Winchmore, and then moving to Fairlie. Twelve years ago she moved across the world to be with her English man.

One&Only The Palm is elegant, sophisticated and beautiful. She’s the super model of five-star resorts.

Sophisticated luxury in Dubai

“C

ucumber for your eyes?” asks a tall, dark gentleman. He’s standing at my toes, dressed in a stylish tan shirt and matching loose trousers. In his hands is a tray of ice with slices of cucumber resting on top. Still, I’m confused. It must be the accent, I think. I’m hopeless with accents. “Pardon? “Cucumber for your eyes?” he repeats. Curious, I say yes and with small silver tongs the man hands me two thin circles of cucumber and strolls away. I giggle, placing them over my tired, puffy eyes. I’m lying beside the stunning blue-tiled pool at Dubai’s fivestar One&Only The Palm. It’s a world-class luxury resort and the cucumber is just one detail on a long list that makes this place stand out in the hotel industry. “Cold towel?” asks another voice. I lift the vegetable spheres from my eyelids. Another dark gentleman is standing at my feet, this time with a tray of rolled face washers. I eagerly take one for refreshment in Dubai’s desert heat. I take in the scene before me. Couples sprawl on large poolside day beds, the water centimetres from their feet.

If you are up for a good old fashioned pampering, you can’t go past the One&Only The Palm. The only drawback is you have to go to Dubai for the experience but it is well worth the trip, as Jennifer Ennion found out. Others relax on reclining lounge chairs, hoping for tans under the intense sun. A few of us hide in the shade, content with the slight breeze that weaves past, making the fuchsia impatiens dance in their garden beds. There are a handful of toddlers and babies about, which is a surprise given the elegance and exclusivity of the resort. I consider escaping to the adultsonly pool but the children aren’t noisy for long – just the occasional cry, yell and laugh before they disappear. When they do, the resort soundtrack returns to the chirping of birds in the palms, the rustle of the wind through the fronds and the lapping of swimmers in the pool. Yet another man quietly approaches holding a jug of cold water and a cup of ice. And again, the face washers return just as I wish them back. Later, I see an employee cleaning sun bathers’ sunglasses. It’s all very attentive and completely unobtrusive. The sky is a light blue, a soft backdrop to the creams, terracottas and whites of this beach resort.

One&Only The Palm is elegant, sophisticated and beautiful. She’s the super model of five-star resorts; a match for the likes of Elle MacPherson, Claudia Schiffer and Christy Turlington. She is like a woman who doesn’t realise how attractive she is; an understated glamour without pretension. As a result, the guests she attracts are also unpretentious. Wealthy, yes, but you won’t see any prancing around here. One&Only’s wardrobe is in a simple palette of silver, soft gold, beige and white. She has strong angular features but they’re never harsh. A subtle pattern decorates the furnishings, from the plush carpet to the cocktail coasters and the elevator’s mirrored doors. She is the epitome of stylish Arabesque architecture. There are high arches throughout, latticework railings and wall panels, high-backed faux cane chairs, cream patio umbrellas and frangipani trees flush with white flowers beneath the towering palms. To stay here, you’ll pay, on average, from 2248 Emirati dirhams ($NZ715) per room per

After a restful morning beside the main pool, I follow in their footsteps and celebrate my stay at the day spa. I follow a path of marble tiles, past terracotta flower pots and lace iron lanterns. Inside the spa, I am treated to a tea cup of fresh juice before an hour massage. My therapist, Zaniang, is pleasantly firm and skilled. Afterwards, she leaves me to the sauna for final relaxation. The longer I stay at the resort, the more I understand why many guests never leave the grounds. The place is so peaceful that you want to enjoy every nook and cranny. Forget the city skyscrapers on the mainland, The Palm is where it’s at. If you’re not spending your days poolside, you can while them away on the 450-metre private beach or down at the marina lounge sipping a sweet Nikki Beach cocktail. Or perhaps dining on raspberry macaroons and cinnamon tarts on the terrace, or better, sampling

IF YOU GO GETTING THERE: Dubai is in the United Arab Emirates and is the hub city for Emirates (emirates. com). It’s an easy stopover for travellers on their way to and from Europe and the airport offers a seamless experience.

■ RUGBY

Crusaders a happy camp Apart from the failure to gain a bonus point in their victory over the Force in Christchurch, the past weekend couldn’t have gone any better for the Crusaders. Remarkably, virtually all of the other results were kind to them, including yesterday’s shock 21-19 victory by the Stormers over the top of the table Sharks in Durban. Third on the table and first in the New Zealand conference, the Crusaders are well placed heading into the June break. They also have a match against the visiting England team on June 17 to keep themselves on task. - APNZ

Stormers stun Sharks The Sharks’ hopes of finishing atop the Super Rugby ladder suffered a setback yesterday the Stormers scored a last-gasp drop goal for a shock 21-19 away victory. Fullback Jaco Taute, a player not known for his drop kicking ability, landed the game breaker 20 seconds into stoppage time to stun the predominantly Sharks-supporting crowd at Kings Park stadium in Durban. A losing bonus point lifted the Sharks to 45 points, keeping them two points clear of the Waratahs and four ahead of record seven-time title-holders the Crusaders. - AFP

Rakaia through undefeated BY JONATHAN LEASK

JONATHAN.L@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Rakaia finished on top of section one in the Combined Country Cup rugby competition after Methven fell at the final hurdle on Saturday. Rakaia completed an unbeaten round with a bonus point win over Oxford, while Methven succumbed to a spirited Prebbleton to finish second in section one. In section two Celtic were kept out of the top four with a loss to Saracens, while Southern claimed a second win to end the round robin. In the cup quarter-finals Rakaia will now host Glenmark and Methven will battle Burnham-Dunsandel. Section two winners Waihora are at home to Darfield while in a replay of last year’s final, Lincoln host defending champions Southbridge. It was mission accomplished for Rakaia, completing an unbeaten round robin with the bonus point 30-14 win over Oxford to finish top of section one. “It was nothing fantastic but we got the win and the four tries

we were after,” coach Wayne Foxcroft said. With bottom of the table Oxford having nothing to lose, Foxcroft knew it would be a difficult task and an early try from Andrew Letham, converted by Andrew Fluker, may not have had the desired result as the “intensity went out the window”. Rakaia could only produce a further try to Tevita Vi and two penalties from Fluker to lead 18-7 at halftime. In the second half Jackson Donlan and Tevita Tupou went over for tries, with Fluker adding one conversion before Oxford scored a last gasp converted try. It wasn’t champagne rugby but it was the desired outcome for Rakaia who finish top of the table, as they did last year, and will now look to make use of home field advantage to go further than the semi-finals this year. Methven coach Dale Palmer hopes his side’s lacklustre effort against Prebbleton serves as a serious wakeup call before the playoffs. Palmer said that his side just looked lethargic against a

passionate Prebbleton side. “Prebbleton came out firing, while we were just going through the motions and never really got going,” Palmer said. Wanting a bonus point win to stay top in section one Methven went to halftime just wanting a win locked at 13-all, after a try to Sam Lock and Dan Maw kicking two penalties and a conversion. Prebbleton seized the advantage with a converted try to go ahead 23-16. The hosts returned fire with a try to Brenton Connell but Maw’s conversion went astray. Ollie Topham went close to snatching the win toeing through a loose ball, but his desperate dive was denied by the dead ball line, and Prebbleton held on for the upset 23-21 win. The consolation point was enough to keep Methven in second place, and Southbridge maintained third after beating fourth placed Darfield 22-5. Ashley missed their chance to leapfrog Darfield as they were beaten by Kaiapoi 14-13. In section two Celtic went north to Rangiora hoping to

produce a strong performance against Saracens that would allow them to push into fourth spot, but were instead sent home suffering a 10-36 loss. Coach Warren Mackenzie had called on his charges to deliver, but was lost for words with the disappointing result. After winning their first three games, Celtic had four losses and a draw over the remaining rounds to miss the cut. Southern finished on a high with a bonus point 29-17 win over Ohoka. Coach Jason Rickard said there were some good parts but still plenty to work on, with his side missing out on several more scoring opportunities before switching off with 10 minutes to play. Southern had led 29-0 before Ohoka produced a three rapid fire tries inside the final 10 minutes to give the score some respectability. A try to Travis Thomson converted by Niko Bueta and a Jon Dampney penalty had Southern up 10-nil at halftime before tries to Will Mackenzie, Dampney and George Ellis had made it 29-0.

■ RUGBY LEAGUE

Leading from the front Captain Simon Mannering celebrated his double milestone match with two tries helping the Warriors to a 38-18 “homecoming” win over the Newcastle Knights yesterday. In his 200th club appearance and 100th as skipper, Mannering touched down twice in the firsthalf and turned in a typically energetic display, in the Warriors first match at Mt Smart Stadium this season. Additional four-pointers from Sam Tomkins and Manu Vatuvei helped the hosts out to a 22-12 half-time lead, before they saw off a short-lived second-half comeback from the Knights to seal the result with tries to Chad Townsend, Konrad Hurrell, and a second to Vatuvei. The Knights struggled to get out of their half during the early exchanges but a Vatuvei knock-on quickly presented them with an attacking scrum, before Jarrod Mullen kicked towards the posts for his halves partner Tyrone Roberts to collect and score under the bar for the first points of the afternoon. The Warriors then managed to benefit from the Knights quick defensive line, when halfback Shaun Johnson was forced to pass on the last tackle instead of kick. Five-eighth Townsend found Mannering with a cut-out ball, before the talismanic back-rower grubbered through and re-gath-

ered to barge over out wide for their first try. The Warriors halves then began peppering rookie Knights winger Josh Mantellato with kicks, before a bomb from Johnson was tapped back by Vatuvei into the hands of Tomkins, who dived over to score. Johnson repeated the tactic to find Vatuvei cleanly for their third, before nailing his second conversion to put them ahead by 10. Roberts caught Tomkins out of position to see Joey Leilua ground the ball ingoal to keep the Knights in the hunt. The Warriors looked in danger of losing their momentum but profited when Mullen inexplicably kicked out on the full inside the Knights’ half with less than two minutes remaining in the half. On the next set, Feleti Mateo showed his value as an impact player when he arrived to lay on a flat ball for Mannering to run in his second. The Knights fought back with a try to back-rower Robbie Rochow, before Townsend capitalised on a Chris Houston mistake to run in the Warriors fifth, and tries to Hurrell and Vatuvei blew the score out and ensured the 19,068 strong crowd when home smiling. Warriors 38 (Simon Mannering 2, Sam Tomkins, Manu Vatuvei 2, Chad Townsend, Konrad Hurrell tries; Shaun Johnson 3 con) Newcastle Knights 18 (Roberts, Leilua, Rocho tries; Mantellato 3 cons) - NZH

In brief Currie team second The Currie brothers from Methven and Team NZ Adventure had to settle for second in the Pengzhou Adventure Challenge in China. An overall victory for Braden and Glen Currie team-mates Jess Simson and Dougal Allan would have required recouping 23 minutes on leaders Thule, with just 59kms of racing over the final day but a stage win, having won stage two, on the third and final stage would have been an ideal finish. At the end of five hours of racing spanning a 15km bike and run, 30km MTB and 14km trail run the day’s win came down to a sprint finish. In the end Thule won the stage by one second and the overall race with NZ Adventure second. NZ Adventure are setting their sights on a win at the Wulong in China during August.

T-Birds down Tactix The Adelaide Thunderbirds ended a tough season with a bright finish, registering a 17-goal win over Canterbury Tactix in the final round of the trans-Tasman netball league yesterday. The Thunderbirds’ victory at Netball SA Stadium gave them a 5-8 win-loss record for the year, equalling their worst season victory tally since the competition began. Tactix goal shooter Mwai Kumwenda surpassed her target of the two goals needed to become the fourth player to reach 500 goals in a debut season in the first term, nailing 14 out of 17 attempts. Tactix coach Leigh Gibbs ended her coaching career after stepping down to concentrate on high performance managing coaches, players and umpires in the Christchurch region. - AAP Captain Simon Mannering leads out the Warriors. Mannering scored a double in his 200th match for his club.

■ BASKETBALL

Adams’ NBA title dream grinds to a halt By Kris shannon Steven Adams’ rookie season ended in dramatic fashion yesterday as San Antonio edged Oklahoma City in overtime to conclude the Kiwi’s involvement in the NBA playoffs. The Spurs recovered from blowing a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter to claim game six of the Western Conference finals 112-107 and advance to the NBA Finals for the second straight year. They will meet Miami in a rematch of last year’s showpiece, which the Heat won in seven games, while Adams will be left to reflect on an incredible debut campaign in NBA. He will certainly look back fondly on his involvement in the Thunder’s playoff run but, after such an agonising exit, the 20-year-old will be feeling far from euphoric for the next few days. Oklahoma City needed to defend their home court if they ap photo San Antonio forward Boris Diaw and Thunder’s Steven Adams wished to send the series back to Texas for a decisive seventh game go after a rebound in the first half of Game 6 yesterday.

but, after engineering a spectacular comeback in the final period, they were unable to stay with the Spurs in overtime. Adams didn’t feature in the fourth and he was also inactive during overtime, being left on the bench after some uneven play in the first three quarters. The centre finished with two rebounds in 12 minutes of court time, missing his only shot in the first and turning over the ball in the third. His limited contributions will hardly detract from his remarkable rookie year, though, with a player some thought destined for the NBA’s development league eventually becoming an integral member of a title challenger. Adams looks set for a bright future on a team that will contend again next season. The question now will be whether he will represent the Tall Blacks at September’s Basketball World Cup, with the Rotorua product set to make a decision in the offseason. - APNZ

Test spots wide open Three into two won’t go. There’s a selection bottleneck for New Zealand’s pace bowling candidates Trent Boult, Tim Southee and Neil Wagner and opening batting contenders Peter Fulton, Hamish Rutherford and Tom Latham ahead of the first test against the West Indies. Wagner snared five for 38 from 10.2 overs against a Jamaican Select XI in the tour opener, a two-dayer on a scraggy pitch in Trelawny. What looks a similar adjacent strip will be used for the three-day game starting tomorrow (NZT). - NZH

Broncos thump Manly What Queensland would have given to have clicked like this at Suncorp Stadium four days earlier. Brisbane could do little wrong as they cruised to a 36-10 NRL win over Manly yesterday, dulling some the pain of the State of Origin series-opening loss to NSW at the same venue for Maroons forwards Corey Parker and Matt Gillett. And the impressive win was just what the Broncos faithful needed after a week that started with the NRL announcing it would launch a probe into potential salary cap irregularities at the Broncos. Their third straight win in front of 32,017 fans provided a convincing argument that Brisbane players had not been distracted by potential irregularities over 2012-14 totalling $450,000. Origin stars were scarce, however, Brisbane injected Sam Thaiday into a fullstrength pack. - AAP

■ ASHBURTON TROTS King Kenny came back from a gallop off the start from the back row to take the win in the Kelly’s Cafe and Bar Handicap Trot at the Ashburton Raceway yesterday. Reinsman Dexter Dunn and King Kenny were still last going down the back, but came around the outside on the home straight to hit the line three-quarters of a length in front of Valmagne and Colin De Filippi, with a further three-quarters of a length back to Another Love and Carl Middleton in third. King Kenny paid $2.10 and clocked 3:03.25 for the 2400m. Earlier in the day the $3.40 favourite, That Guy Finn, won the Ashburton Guardian Pace with Terry Chmiel in the sulky, who backed up in the following race to win with Stradowan at $7.90. Methven driver Ricky May had a win in the fifth, TF Pearson Memorial Pace, with Cullene Keefe keeping the punters happy at $1.70.

YOUR STARS by Forecasters

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20) While the rest of your life can hurtle forward at full speed, things close to home need to be taken slowly, deliberately and purposefully. TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21) Don’t rush things or make assumptions. When you take the time to connect and come from a place of truth, anything is possible. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 22) The message from the money gods, apart from a need for believing in what you’re worth, is to take time, with slow and steady winning the race. CANCER (JUNE 22 – JULY 24) This is a day where you’re likely to be spending a lot of time in your own head, with a lot to mull over and process. LEO (JULY 24 – AUG 23) It’s in those moments when you let your thoughts wander that you’re more likely to experience Eureka moments or the birth of new ideas. VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 23) There is something fateful in play today, with luck working to put you in the right place at the right time. Expect the unexpected. LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 23) Take the opportunity to consider your options more carefully. You really do need time to think things through. SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) There is an almost desperate need to hold onto a sense of adventure today, especially as you’re likely to feel that it’s slipping from your fingers. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) The real message from the money gods today is to slow down, stay in the moment and give yourself time to consider all your options. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) After all that you have been through on the relationship front over recent months, it’s communication that is now turning things around. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) There is a call to slow down and stay in the moment, but to also start putting the brakes on. The coming weeks are so important that they can’t be rushed. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) From around the cosmos the gods are making this an auspicious day for putting heart and mind on the same page, giving both a voice.

Lawson strikes gold View or purchase photos online

Sport

Ashburton’s Michael Lawson defended his pair’s title to gain a gold star at the South Island Indoor Bowls Championship in Ashburton on Saturday. Lawson won the pairs last year with Stephen Preddy, but they were unable to defend the title together

with Preddy overseas, so Lawson teamed up with Owen Ditford (Canterbury). In the final they were tied 8-all with Simon Thomas and James Sullivan (Canterbury) going into the final end, and Thomas held three shots before Ditford drew the

shot to take the point and the win. In the quarter-finals Lawson and Ditford beat Ashburton husband and wife Geoff and Bernice Laird, and then another Ashburton pair, skipped by Brent Keen, in the semifinals. Thomas and Sullivan got re-

demption yesterday in the fours championship when they, and Steve Fisher and Kevin Anngow, beat Hornby’s Mike King, Dave Bullock, Richard Hamilton and Vanessa Tyson 13-4. The South Islands conclude today with the championship triples.

Read ready to tackle England BY PATRICK MCKENDRY With scratches on his face, a black eye and a voice all but lost due to the effort he put in for the Crusaders in their victory over the Force, Kieran Read has announced himself ready to go for the All Blacks in the first test against England at Eden Park. The facial marks and raspy croak are proof that his 80 minutes in a sub-zero Christchurch on Friday night was no easingin process after his long lay-off with concussion. The No8 threw himself into the collisions with his usual intent and went on a lung-busting run at the finish after intercepting a pass. All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said at his squad announcement in Auckland yesterday he was glad Read opted to pass to wing

Johnny McNicholl rather than try to go the whole way and run the risk of pulling a hamstring. The man himself later said there was little chance of that. “The calves were certainly cramping from halfway - certainly from there I was looking for someone to give it to because I knew I wasn’t going to make it,” Read said. “It was nice to get back out on the track. I’m certainly pretty sore and tired now but I’m good for the run,” he said of his return in the 30-7 victory. Read is ready to turn his attention on England and next Saturday’s first test, saying he and his All Blacks team-mates were preparing for an “ambush”, but Hansen appeared to be keen to take a cautious approach to the player judged as the best in the world last year.

Great weekend for Crusaders P20

“He took his time to warm into the game as you’d expect but you saw all the skills that he possesses,” he said of Read’s first game back. “We’ll just see how he comes through that and how the week goes.” As expected, Hansen and his selectors have left out the underperforming Blues loose forward Steven Luatua, with midfielder Malakai Fekitoa and lock Patrick Tuipulotu the new caps in the squad. Loose forward Jerome Kaino capped off a fine weekend which saw him score a superb try in the 37-24 win over the Hurricanes at Eden Park with a deserved place in the squad after his return from Japan. Only two hookers - Keven Mealamu and Dane Coles - have been selected, with Nathan Har-

ris and Liam Coltman to be developed in apprentice roles. Hansen was keen to underline the challenge England possess. “I read with interest that the media has written them off. I can assure you that they will be a very, very good side right from test one. “With the World Cup only 18 months away there’s a need for both sides to perform well in this series, to put a line in the sand.” Squad: (Province, franchise, tests) Hookers: Dane Coles (Wellington/Hurricanes, 15); Keven Mealamu (Auckland/ Blues, 110) Props: Wyatt Crockett (Canterbury/ Crusaders, 24); Charlie Faumuina (Auckland/Blues 17); Ben Franks (Hawke’s Bay/Hurricanes, 31); Owen Franks (Canterbury, Crusaders, 54); Tony Woodcock (North Harbour/ Blues, 107) Locks: Dominic Bird (Canterbury/ Crusaders, 1); Brodie Retallick (Bay of Plenty, Chiefs, 24); Patrick Tuipulotu

(Auckland/Blues); Samuel Whitelock (Canterbury/ Crusaders, 51) Loose Forwards: Sam Cane (Bay of Plenty, Chiefs, 14); Jerome Kaino (Auckland/Blues, 48); Richie McCaw (c) (Canterbury/Crusaders, 124); Liam Messam (Waikato/Chiefs, 29); Kieran Read (Canterbury, Crusaders, 61); Victor Vito (Wellington/Hurricanes, 22) Backs Halfbacks: Tawera Kerr–Barlow (Waikato/Chiefs, 14); TJ Perenara (Wellington/Hurricanes); Aaron Smith (Manawatu/Highlanders, 26) First five–eighths: Beauden Barrett (Taranaki/Hurricanes, 16); Aaron Cruden (Manawatu/Chiefs, 29); Colin Slade (Canterbury/Crusaders (11) Midfielders: Ryan Crotty (Canterbury/ Crusaders, 5); Malakai Fekitoa (Auckland/Highlanders); Ma’a Nonu (Wellington/Blues, 88); Conrad Smith (Wellington/Hurricanes, 75) Outside backs: Israel Dagg (Hawke’s Bay/Crusaders, 38); Cory Jane (Wellington/Hurricanes, 45); Julian Savea (Wellington/Hurricanes, 20); Ben Smith (Otago/Highlanders, 26) - APNZ
