NZ police using Twitter

Police have arrested two 18-year-old US men accused of pretending to attack each other with an axe and using the axe to threaten passers-by while videotaping their reactions. Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said the suspects allegedly told investigators they were “pranking” people with what police describe as a realistic-looking fake axe. Pavel Krivov and Petru Tomcac were arrested for assault. – AP

UK pair debut machinery at A&P show BY MYLES HUME


It may have been a gamble, but a Scottish father and son are confident they will return home from the Ashburton A&P show without their heavy farming machinery. Gordon Skea and his son William arrived in Mid Canterbury from their UK home this week, hoping to crack the local potato growing industry with their company ScanStone, which specialises in root vegetable soil preparation machinery. It is somewhat of a rarity to see an exhibit trek from the other side of the world for the Ashburton A&P Show, and what’s more - the duo are hoping they can leave their machinery with an Ashburton salesman and appeal to potato growers in Mid Canterbury. “We studied the farming industry here and we know we will be able to do business here.

The conditions are suitable for our equipment as there are a lot of stones in the ground for potato growers to deal with,” Gordon Skea said. The machinery can cost up to $140,000, and is used to grind down large dirt clods and remove stones from the soil to create ideal planting conditions for root vegetables. The company has sold its machinery to many parts of Europe and before now had travelled as far afield as South Africa. This was the first time they had come to New Zealand, and before the first day of the A&P show yesterday, they also held demonstration sessions at farms in Seafield and Temuka. “They were attended really well, and we have had some great feedback already from a lot of people,” Gordon said. Gordon and William Skea expect to return home in the coming days.

Scottish father and son Gordon and William Skea have travelled from the UK to showcase their ScanStone root vegetable farming equipment at the Ashburton A&P Show. Below is the ScanStone equipment in operation.

The Australians won the toss, and decided to put New Zealand out to set the pace. And Murray Child, from Northland, with his four-year-old dog Dice did just that. With decades of experience behind him and a stellar performance from Dice, Mr Child, put 90.5 points on the board. “I’m always happy to finish – it’s always good when you’re first up to complete the course, it puts the pressure on the opposition,” he said. At last year’s trans-Tasman competition, held in Australia, Dice proved her mettle, taking the top store in both tests. On the back of this strong performance New Zealand was able to hold the lead, but as they say in dog trialling – it’s not over until the final whistle and best dogs the two countries could muster will be back today to decide if the prized Wayleggo Cup goes back across the ditch, or whether the Kiwis can snatch it off the op- Veteran New Zealand dog triallist Murray Child and Dice set the bar high during the first run of the trans-Tasman series for the position.

TAIC proposals ‘already in place’ By GABrielle StuArt

After a damning report on the Carterton ballooning tragedy was released on Thursday, media outlets around the country took up the call for tourism operators to be drug tested. At the same time in Mid Canterbury, Aoraki Balloon Safaris chief pilot Martyn Stacey received a random drug test - the second he has received this year. He said that the Transport Accident Investigation Commission (TAIC) was ‘behind the ball’, and the recommendations had already been in place in the

industry for more than a year. The TAIC report came after post-mortem toxicology results from the pilot involved in the 2012 ballooning tragedy showed evidence of both longterm and recent use of cannabis. The TAIC called for significant reforms of the current drug and alcohol regulations across aviation, rail and marine sectors, including maximum allowable alcohol levels, drug and alcohol tests after any incidents and drug detection programmes including random drug testing. But Mr Stacey also serves at the President of the Balloon

Aviation Association of New Zealand, and said that similar reforms were already in the pipeline at the time of the Carterton Tragedy, and were fully implemented shortly afterward. He also serves at the President of the Balloon Aviation Association of New Zealand, and said that drug and alcohol testing was already mandatory for all New Zealand adventure tourism operators, and included both drug testing of all new employees and random drug testing throughout the year. He said that New Zealand had taken a huge step ahead with the

policy reforms, and the country was leading the world with the regulations. The policy reforms around drug testing added a significant amount to the cost of certification for adventure tourism operators, but the security of knowing that regulations were in place across the board was most definitely worth the cost. Eleven people were killed in the Carterton ballooning tragedy, bringing the total deaths to 35 from six incidents in the past 10 years where people had tested positive for performanceimpairing substances.

Magpies targeting Allenton posties By AnnA SedlAckovA Mid Canterbury posties are under attack from magpies, putting mail deliveries in Allenton in jeopardy. Anyone who grew up in Ashburton will know the story: Springtime is magpie nesting season and you need to keep an eye out for swooping birds. For Ashburton posties, Allenton was posing a particular problem at the moment. David Aberhart of New Zealand Post said there were “two or three really aggressive birds” in the north-western suburb of Ashburton that got aggressive even outside the nesting season, which bird experts considered unusual. “When posties deliver mail on bikes, magpies dive on them and peck their cheeks, necks and ears,” he said. The employees go home from work with bruises and scratches. Apart from physical injuries, the birds also cause material damage – they break posties’ helmets. Magpies attacking posties have become a safety issue. Mr

Magpies are make posties’ lives difficult.

Aberhart said it was getting near to the stage when postal services would get suspended in Allenton. “We may have to stop delivering mail in that area. It sounds a little funny to do so because of a bird, but at the same time it’s frustrating. “Posties have a right to feel safe in their working environment.” A number of steps have been taken to protect posties. They

installed special spikes on their helmets; they tried changing the colour of their clothing and equipment; they delivered mail in Allenton at different times of the day to confuse the birds, and they switched from riding a bike to walk-arounds. “But nothing has worked,” Mr Aberhart said. “There can be a magpie sitting on a rooftop, an ordinary person passes by and the bird won’t do a jolly thing, but as

soon as a postie comes near they get attacked.” Every year, the Ashburton District Council receives complaints about magpies. “We do receive a few calls about magpies and other birds during this time of year. July to December is usually their breeding season and they tend to defend their territory and young,” council’s environmental monitoring manager Rick Catchpowle said.

Postie numbers set to be slashed Prime Minister John Key says the loss of up to 2000 postal jobs is the “brutal reality” of people sending fewer letters. New Zealand Post announced yesterday it expected to axe the jobs in an attempt to safeguard its future options. Chairman Sir Michael Cullen said the organisation would focus on logistics and financial services, innovation in its mail and retail network, and lowering costs. The changes, which have been slammed as “simply cruel” by the posties’ union, will start to be implemented next year. Mr Key acknowledged it was a difficult time for everyone involved, but said it was the “brutal reality” of people sending fewer letters. “Unfortunately, technology is dramatically changing the way we communicate with each other.” Mr Key disagreed with the union that the Government had made the announcement “out of the blue”. “There’s been a lot of discussion about what would happen if there was a change to the number of days that the mail was delivered to people’s homes. Engineering Printing and Manufacturing Union postal industry organiser Joe Gallagher said the announcement had come as a real shock “Yet again New Zealand Post and the Government have made a huge announcement out of the blue. These plans have clearly been in the pipeline for a long time, but the people affected by them have been kept in the dark.” - APNZ

In brief Beer brew heads south Beer is being brewed in Oamaru for the first time since prohibition stopped commercial brewing in 1905. On Wednesday, Scotts Brewing Co started brewing craft and gluten-free beers at its new Oamaru brewery after closing its Auckland brewery and moving its plant south. The gluten-free beers are made using sorghum, buckwheat and corn instead of the usual wheat, rye and barley. Company owner Phillip Scott said it was “definitely something special” to bring brewing back to the town. -APNZ

Late Lotto win A man has claimed a $1 million Lotto prize - seven months after buying his ticket. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, found a handful of old tickets in a coffee table drawer when he started doing his tax return for the end of the financial year. “When I found the tickets, I thought I may as well check them online at, just in case,” the winner said. “So I went through each one, until I got to the one from March this year. As I started going through the numbers, it looked like I had all of them. “Even though I checked the numbers about 10 times, I still thought I must’ve done something wrong.” - apnz

Fatal crash Make sure you stay safe this Guy Fawkes by using a good dose of common sense.

■ guy fawkes celebrations

Stay safe – use common sense By Erin Tasker

All it takes to stay safe this Guy Fawkes is a little common sense, according to the New Zealand Fire Service. Ashburton Volunteer Fire Brigade station officer Murray Cairns said Guy Fawkes hadn’t been too tough on firefighters in Mid Canterbury in recent years, with the banning of skyrockets and the shortening of the timeframe during which they could be sold (November 2-5), having lessened the load on firefighters around the country. “The past few years, apart from the odd scrub fire, haven’t been too bad, but it really depends on the weather,” Mr Cairns said. In the days of skyrockets, firefighters dreaded Guy Fawkes. “We used to be running around after fires all night,” Mr Cairns said. For people wanting to catch some fireworks this Guy Fawkes, Mr Cairns said the best bang for your buck was to go to a public display – like the free one at the Rakaia Domain tonight. If people did buy and want to have their own fireworks’ display at home though, there were

simple rules that should be followed. Always read the instructions properly and light the fireworks in an open area, away from anything that could catch fire. Children should never be allowed to light fireworks and a bucket of water and a garden hose should always be on standby just in case. If you come across a dud firework, don’t try to relight it – pour water over it and leave it. Fireworks should also always be kept away from open flames, and only light one at a time, keeping other fireworks well away. Checking the weather forecast was also vital. “If it’s blowing a howling nor’wester, put it off for another night,” Mr Cairns said. Accidents were always possible though and if anyone did suffer burns, the affected body part should be kept under water for 10 minutes to lessen the damage, Mr Cairns said. “Accidents do happen and that’s to be expected, but if you take all the precautions it reduces the risk.” It’s also advised that pets are kept inside while fireworks were being let off, so they didn’t get too traumatised.

Rakaia to host another of its popular displays By Erin Tasker

Mid Canterbury’s only free, public fireworks display will light up Rakaia tonight. The annual Guy Fawkes celebration has been organised and run by members of Rakaia’s Lions Club for about 15 years and every year it’s a winner, spokesperson Ken Cutforth said. He said in the past it had attracted about 2000 people to the Rakaia Domain, with people coming from well out of Rakaia to make the most of the free entertainment. The fireworks and bonfire may be the night’s main attraction, but there was plenty more on the card this year too. There will be a tug-of-war, children’s rides, the annual Guy competition, and entertainment from busker, Mullet Man. “He does all sorts of juggling and things and he’s quite a comedian to go with it,” Mr Cutforth said.

He said the Lions club had to jump through many hoops and get permits in order to hold the free display, but they did it for the community and the Rakaia Volunteer Fire Brigade would be on hand to help ensure all ran smoothly. “The fire brigade are there and they see it as more or less an education exercise, but a fireman did tell me that by having a free fireworks display it saves them from having to go to a heap of hedge fires,” Mr Cutforth said. “And people get a real buzz from it. People go away with a smile on their face.” The event at the Rakaia Domain will start at 6pm, with the bonfire to be lit at about 8.45pm and fireworks to be let off once it’s dark enough. People are urged to get there by 9pm so they don’t miss the main event. There’s a glass ban in place and if the weather doesn’t play along the night will be postponed until Sunday evening.

A man has died after the truck he was driving crashed on Auckland’s northwestern motorway. Police said emergency services were called to the crash just after 7pm on the city-bound lanes west of the Te Atatu interchange. The truck had veered off the motorway, crashing into a lamp-post, then a tree. No other vehicles were involved in the crash, police said. Other motorists stopped to provide assistance to the man, who has died at the scene. - APNZ

Second kotuku death A kotuku found dead on the roadside near Serpentine Beach this week was the second death of the rare bird in as many weeks; however, the Department of Conservation does not believe there is any connection. On Tuesday morning Ila Lee discovered a dead kotuku, which she believed was mowed down by a vehicle, when she was out checking stock on her farm. The death saddened Mrs Lee, who said that it was most likely caused by a speeding motorist. - APNZ

The Paul Henry Show will be a wrap of the day’s events, TV3 said.

Trading figures show 3% rise With six months of its trading year behind it, the Ashburton Trust has watched its trading figures grow by 3 per cent over the previous year. For the year to September 30 it has logged $8.76 million worth of sales, with $1.62 million of those in September. For the year to date accommodation sales were up 3 per cent, on premises sales up 4 per

cent and off-licence sales up 1 per cent. In his report to the trust board, chief executive Giles Beal said the trust’s accommodation sales had continued to hold up well against an on-going, challenging market. Forward bookings for all trust accommodation businesses remained strong over the remainder of the financial year,

he said. On premises sales, which were the bulk of the trust’s revenue, were good at most venues and with no significant one-off events during September. The underlying natural growth was pleasing, Mr Beal said. Because cashflow was remaining strong, the trust was working through plans for a

number of re-investment projects for the year. Refurbishing work on conference and function rooms at the Hotel Ashburton will be completed by the end of January, the outside seating project at Braided Rivers has been completed and repairs to earthquake damage at Speights Ale House are expected to be completed by Christmas.

In brief Phillipstown talks The Government will not appeal against the High Court’s ruling over Phillipstown School in Christchurch, and will instead resume consultation procedures. Last month the school won a legal battle in its opposition to Education Minister Hekia Parata’s plans to merge it with Woolston School. Yesterday Ms Parata announced she will begin consultation with Phillipstown over the proposed merger, in line with the High Court judgement, which ruled the decision to close the school had been unlawful. The process will not start until the final business case for the Government’s Education Renewal Plans in greater Christchurch has been considered by Cabinet in the next few weeks. - APNZ

School NCEA examinations are closing in fast and principals and past pupils are keen to highlight the major bearing the results have on a student’s future.

The family of the Katikati teenager who died in a Labour Weekend crash were brought to tears during a moving tribute at the family home.

NCEA results play big role in students’ futures

A Rotorua woman jailed for illtreating a child in her care is “not an evil person”, a court heard.

She also admitted a charge of ill-treatment by striking the boy with her hands, force feeding him, leaving him on a toilet for excessive periods and restricting his fluid intake. - APNZ

Entry into competitive tertiary courses and lucrative scholarships should be more than enough to motivate pupils for their NCEA exams that start in 10 days. As 143,000 teenagers – 1000 of those from Mid Canterbury enter the most important period of their schooling days starting November 8, principals and past pupils are keen to highlight the major bearing National Certificate in Education Achievement (NCEA) results have on the future. “They are really important, when you’re going for scholarships, universities tend to look at your Year 12 (Level 2) results and that’s the same for university halls. And in Year 13 you need to get University Entry to actually get into courses,” last year’s Ashburton College dux Olivia Quinn said. Although strong results can put pupils in good stead for their

Top five study tips for students: ■

Revision: You must know what is required to achieve each standard. Have up-to-date notes from classes. Choose a place to study: You need a quiet, organised and well-lit space to study for NCEA exams. Set regular routines and study goals. Balance study with free time: It is important that you keep positive and relaxed. In addition, take regular breaks, eat

vocational pathway, universities across New Zealand are also putting cash incentives in place to lure school leavers who have achieved solid results in NCEA. Canterbury and Waikato universities have been offering pupils, who pass NCEA with Merit or Excellence endorsements in Levels 2 and 3, up to $3000 in cash. Mount Hutt College principal John Schreurs said such scholar-

well, get fresh air, stay in touch ith friends and study groups, and get plenty of sleep. Know the exam timetable: Know where your exams are, and when. Timetables can be downloaded from the NZQA website. Arrive 20 minutes early. Get prepared: Know when and where your exams are, how you are going to get there, what the exam room rules are, and what you are allowed to take in.

ships and course entry did help motivate pupils to study harder for exams, but disciplined study also generated good habits. It helped pupils develop their study skills during school which led into their tertiary years or in the workforce, he said. Although the message to “study, study, study” is forever being reinforced, some may still be struggling with the best techniques to memorise and un-

derstand their year’s work. Ms Quinn had a few tricks up her sleeve including talking about topics with friends in study groups, but on her way to becoming dux last year one method worked the best. “In NCEA, I did lots of practice papers that you can find online and then checked my answers alongside the answer sheets. That was my main way of study,” she said. Mount Hutt College has been identifying and helping pupils that may be struggling to reach the grade, while Ashburton College has set up its library study and tuition sessions which go from 7-9pm most week nights in the lead up to exams. New Zealand Qualifications Authority deputy chief executive Richard Thornton said there were many resources available for pupils online. “Students should make full use of all the resources offered to them and not be afraid to ask parents or teachers for help,” he said.

In brief Dumping condemned View or purchase photos online

The dumping of a cat a tied pillowcase on the roof of a four-storey Dunedin building, has been condemned by SPCA Otago. Executive officer Sophie McSkimming said the cat was “obviously left there to die”. “It was a disgraceful act,” she said. The cat was discovered by Department of Conservation ranger Arnie Elbers, who saw the pillowcase on the roof of Conservation House, in lower Stuart St, on Tuesday afternoon. - APNZ

Blown away by bikers’ backing By GaBrielle Stuart

When Mid Canterbury Animal Shelter Fun Day organiser Tracey Clark approached local bikers about giving children motorbike rides at the fundraising family fun day on Sunday, she was hoping one or two might volunteer. She already has more than 30. Family Riders bike club rider Brent Garrett has spent the week ringing contacts and “calling in a few favours”, and has organised plenty of riders from across Canterbury willing to

volunteer a few hours to help out on the day. For many of the local riders their bikes are their pride and joy, and they’ll be lined up and gleaming on Sunday, ready to take children for a spin.

Mr Garrett said that most of the riders didn’t need much of an excuse to start their bikes up, but this weekend they had two significant reasons: both to raise some much needed funds for the Mid Canterbury Animal Shelter and give kids a chance to experience the thrill of being out on a motorcycle. He said the riders were all keen to help out people who really needed it, and were already lined up to help out with several more fundraising ventures in the community this year. Fun day organiser Tracey Clark said the riders were a fan-

tastic bunch, and were some of the many people who were helping to make the fun day happen. Mid Canterbury’s country musician Amelia James will be providing live music on the day, which will feature activities and costume competitions for pets; as well as craft activities, puppet shows, face painting and pony, fire engine and motorbike rides for the children. There will even be something for adults on the day, with plenty of food, stalls, raffles and latin and rock and roll dancing, and a parents’ area set up for parents needing a sit down.


Ashburton motorcyclists invited to join ride A ride against violence is seeking support from local motorcyclists to lead the way into Ashburton. The November White Ribbon Campaign aims to end men’s violence towards women. As part of the campaign, a White Ribbon Motorcycle Ride has been organised for the past three years in the South Island to highlight the anti-violence messages and speak directly to men in local communities. Anyone can join the ride providing their bike has a current warrant of fitness, a minimum engine size of 250cc and are willing to make the pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence to-

wards women. “Most men aren’t violent,” Patriot leader and White Ribbon rider, Aaron Morrison said. “However, most violence against women is perpetrated by men.” Every year, around 14 women are killed, and over 3500 convictions are recorded against men each year for assault on women. Police estimate less than 20 per cent of the violence is actually reported. “The Patriot Motorcycle Club is made up of current and former service men and women. Many of us have undertaken peace keeping roles throughout some of the most dangerous places in the world.

“We’ve even lost friends such as White Ribbon rider and SAS soldier Dougy Grant who was a staunch White Ribbon supporter and rider. “Now we want to bring some of that peace into our own homes. There’s too much violence in our communities. We can’t stand by and do nothing. It’s time to step up to the plate and acknowledge that as men, we can encourage other men to change. It’s as simple as that.” The ride was recently presented at the first International White Ribbon Conference in Australia and the concept was well received. “Australia is now holding their first White Ribbon Ride this

year,” White Ribbon campaign manager Rob McCann said. “Having tough-looking men in leathers delivering messages about healthy relationships without violence gets people’s attention straight away. “But we need the support of local motorcyclists. We are inviting riders to join us and help lead the ride into Ashburton and take part in the local event. Standing up sends a powerful message that you care about the women in your community.” Local riders can join the ride or escort the riders into and out of Ashburton.

A New Zealand-US bid to establish the world’s largest marine reserve in Antarctica is understood to have been blocked by China, Russia and Ukraine. It was the third time the 25 nations under the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) had failed to agree to establish a marine protected area in the fishrich Ross Sea, 3500km south of New Zealand. Radio New Zealand reported a consensus could not be reached despite negotiations going on into the early hours of the morning, with China, Russia and Ukraine unable to agree to the fishing restrictions and the size of the proposed 1.34 million sq km marine protection area. - APNZ

Inquest ‘not justified’ Unlike the 2006 killing of the Kahui twins, only one suspect was identified for the murder of Feilding farmer Scott Guy so an inquest was not justified, a coroner has ruled. The inquest into Mr Guy’s 2010 death was put on hold when his brother-in-law Ewen Macdonald stood trial and was ultimately acquitted for his murder. Coroner Carla na Nagara yesterday released her decision not to resume the inquiry. She said doing so would “only be to pursue a finding that Mr Macdonald acquitted of Mr Guy’s murder - was the killer”. - APNZ

I have therefore decided that it is a good time to strike a better balance between my family and government commitments.” - APNZ

Up-to-date resource a helping hand By MyleS HuMe

Mid Canterbury schools concerned about the mental welfare of pupils can now seek help with a new up-to-date resource. The Ministry of Education this week released its latest suicide prevention resource, a document updated from a 2003 version that helps schools deal with at-risk pupils. Ministry head of regional operations Katrina Casey said the

new resource was created “in response to a need to support schools with the most recent evidence relating to the prevention and response to suicide”. It includes information on how to identify a troubled pupil and how to deal with it, along with places schools can go to get further help. Mid Canterbury Principals’ Association president Neil Simons has played a role in the consultation stage with the re-

source, something he said was a necessary tool – even for primary schools. “My initial thoughts were that it was very user-friendly. “If staff are suspicious or have any niggles about something they are able to pick it up and see where to go,” Mr Simons said. Mr Simons said it was vital such resources were created and updated, with the ever-growing presence of cyberbullying fil-

tering down to younger children. “Cyberbullying is the main one, certainly the faceless people who bully are a real issue, but sometimes there’s that copy-cat type stuff you see on social media.” Ms Casey said the ministry had already distributed the resource kit to all primary and secondary schools throughout New Zealand and would now hold workshops to promote it.

World’s top freestylers to show off their tricks By GaBrielle Stuart

The season might have ended at Mount Hutt, but the action certainly hasn’t – and on Sunday locals will get one chance to see what some of the world’s top freestyle athletes have been up to on the mountain. Between 11am and 1pm the public will be welcomed onto the skifield to watch the 30 freestylers, including current Olympic gold medal champion Torah Bright, demonstrate their skills. And for aspiring freestylers, the day will bring a chance to have a go on the superpipe and get some world-class tips along the way - if they have the courage to take on the 22 foot high vertical walls of the Olympic sized halfpipe. Mt Hutt Ski Area Manager James McKenzie expected it to be another fantastic day on the mountain. “The weather’s looking pretty good, and we’ve got some of the world’s top athletes up there – the best of the best.” Visitors were invited to bring a picnic on the day, and they could drive up to the mountain themselves or join the busload travelling from Methven Travel, departing at 10.15am on Sunday and and returning about 2pm. Entry on the day is free, while bus tickets cost $15 return, with kids 10 years and under free.

Dorie wins run’s schools’challenge By GaBrielle Stuart

Three young girls from Dorie school will be going on a $1000 shopping spree next week, after winning the Muddy Good Run schools’ challenge. The three took on 1500 metres of mud and obstacles to win their school the $1000 in sports equipment, which went to the school with the highest percentage of their school roll entered. Dorie Principal Anthony Dorreen said he would let the girls choose what sports equipment they bought with the winnings. He hoped to travel to up to Supersports in Christchurch with the girls next week, where they would have warehouses packed with equipment of every shape and size to trawl through, in one ‘giant shopping spree’. He said there would be a lot more children in next year’s Muddy Good Run, as more than half the school was already planning to take part. Muddy Good Run organiser John Moore presented the voucher to the school on Friday, and said the Dorie pupils were among 150 who competed in the children’s run. $6000 in proceeds from the Muddy Good Run was donated to groups around the district who helped on the day, including the Rakaia Volunteer Fire Brigade, Rakaia Pony Club, and Muddy Good Run organiser John Moore presented Dorie School pupils with a voucher for $1000 of sports equipment on Friday, after they won the children’s race school challenge.

Registrations a bid to beef up safety on the lake By MyleS HuMe

More than 160 boaties wanting to use Lake Hood have registered their vessels under a new by-law, but officials still expect hundreds more to sign up. In a bid to beef up safety on the popular Ashburton lake, boaties operating a vessel of more than 10 horsepower must register with Lake Hood officials which will help identify rule-breakers and prove boaties have read the aquatic park’s rules. The free registration initiative gives officials the right to remove boats from the lake if they are not signed up, and is part of a trial that could soon be rolled out across lakes in the Environment Canterbury (ECan) jurisdiction. Lake Hood project manager Gary Casey said it was encouraging to see about 160 lake-users had already registered their vessels as the boating season ramps up, but he was expecting up to 400 boats to be registered this summer. “We have just started to publicise it in Timaru and Christchurch because a lot of people come from there to use the lake. “We have already had a strong number of people from Christchurch, and in particular Rolleston, sign up,” Mr Casey said.

The initiative sees lake-users register free of charge, with stickers plastered on each side of the vessel, corresponding with their trailer registration number. Mr Casey said the trial was in response to problems experienced on the lake last summer with people boating the wrong way around the lake and not adhering to the compulsory lifejacket rule. During the past month, he said officials had found some unregistered vessels on the lake but they were given registration information. However, plans are in place to ramp up enforcement of the registration rule during the lead up to Christmas. ECan recreational boating officer Evan Walker said boating behaviour on the lake will be closely monitored over summer. “If, as anticipated, there are positive outcomes, boat identification may be an initiative which could be rolled out throughout the region. “This would have to be done through a formal bylaw review, which would involve full public consultation,” Mr Walker said. Registration forms can be found online, at ACL, Ashburton Marine, The Lake House, today’s Ashburton A&P Show and from officials distributing forms at the boat ramp.

Caring for the dying and their family has been a life work for Karen Hall, but this week she decided it was time to look for new challenges. She talks to reporter Sue Newman about the rewards and challenges of 30 years in palliative care.

Palliative care nurse says goodbye to 30-year career

View or purchase photos online


hirty years might sound like a long time, but when you’re doing a job you love time simply flies by, says district nurse Karen Hall. This week she packed her nurse’s bag for the final time, made her last home visits and called time on a career that has seen her work in one of the toughest nursing assignments, with the terminally ill. When she returned to work in between having her four children, Karen worked night shift as a district nurse for 10 years, returning fulltime when her youngest was two. That was in the days when employment was a much more casual affair. “My interview was just a chat and I was asked when I would like to start,” Karen said. Her involvement in palliative care evolved from there after the opportunity came up to attend education courses in Christchurch. “I balanced study around four children and working fulltime. It was a crazy thing to do but it worked.”


Packing her case for the final time, for district nurse Karen Hall also means packing away a 30 year career at Ashburton Hospital.

Making it work meant having the family routine printed out on the fridge. Each child knew where they would be at different times and who was taking them there. Karen knew organisation had gone too far, however, when she found her two-year-old standing in front of the fridge waiting for someone to tell him where he had to be next. Her workplace has been the community, her work treating symptoms, knowing she can never provide a cure. Over the years Karen said she has often been asked how she copes working with people who are dying. There’s no simple answer to that, she said. “This is why I’ve continued doing education. If you have the skills and the experience you can help make a difference in people’s lives, the patients and their families. You know you can’t change the outcome, but you can use your skills to make it as good as you can for every-

one involved.” Over the years she said she had met amazing families who had coped in very difficult situations. That has left her with priceless memories to take away from her job. Like any job where you become part of people’s lives you also become attached to those people and that means developing some good coping techniques. “My escape has always been my family and my music. You learn to shut off, you have to. You can’t work in this field without being able to do this.” Working with people who were dying and spending time with their families was more inspirational than it was depressing. Working with children who were dying, however, was always heartbreaking, Karen said. “It’s always so hard for parents to watch their children dying. It was always difficult if

you had a child the same age, but we always had the opportunity to give that case to someone else.” Her job continuously hammered home the importance of doing the things you really wanted to do in your own life, she said. “I’ve had so many older people say things like, they wish they’d taken more holidays, they wish they hadn’t worked for so long and there’s a real truth in that.” In palliative care there was no such thing as a norm. Families and those who were dying coped with things in their own way, and a district nurse’s job was to be there as a support and to help them manage the dying process, she said. “You treasure and hold on to the fact that you’ve touched lives; that’s something a lot of people don’t get the opportunity to do.” Karen might be leaving the world of hospitals and district

nursing, but she’s adamant she’s not retiring. “That would mean I won’t work again, but I definitely want to do something. “I’m not sure what but I know there will be challenges and new opportunities out there. I feel really positive the time is right, that there is something out there I can do that is really worthwhile.” Those opportunities will most likely be in the health field; that’s her career and her passion. “What it will be I don’t know but it will be more part-time and I know I want to be more than a once-a-year grandma.” She plans to take a two- or three-month break, to enjoy family coming home for Christmas without thinking about work and she hopes that she and husband Matt can finally get to enjoy some summer fishing at their Rangitata Rivermouth bach.

Parents should restrict children’s access to technology to just two hours a day, and ban screens from bedrooms, American doctors have recommended. Reporter Gabrielle Stuart investigated how parents could best negotiate the minefield around setting boundaries for internet use.

Teen tech usage A

comes down to common-sense

merican doctors have announced a new policy around restricting children’s access to technology, that New Zealand technology experts NetSafe say is 10 years behind the times. The policy recommends that parents should limit kids’ tweeting and texting and keep smartphones and laptops out of bedrooms. It also recommends limiting internet use for entertainment, including Facebook, Twitter, TV and movies, to just two hours each day; with online homework an exception. The new policy comes from the American Academy of Pediatrics (medical practitioners who specialise in working with children), who say that parents need to know that unrestricted media use can have serious consequences. Dr Victor Strasburger, lead author of the new policy, said that many parents were clueless about the profound impact media exposure could have on their children. Unrestricted media use has been linked with violence, cyberbullying, school woes, obesity, lack of sleep and a host of other problems. “This is the 21st century and (parents) need to get with it,” said Strasburger, a University of New Mexico adolescent medicine specialist. “I guarantee you that if you have a 14-year-old boy and he has an internet connection in his bedroom, he is looking at pornography.” NetSafe New Zealand executive director

Martin Cocker said that just 10 years ago NetSafe would have recommended similar policies for parents, but with technology changing fast the recommendations were now “patently unrealistic”. He said that completely restricting technology or internet access had become very difficult, and as children become increasingly technologically savvy, if parents put blanket bans on technology they risked starting a battle that they could not win. “With sensible guidelines and open communication, most parents will find that if young people are trusted they will more often than not make sensible decisions around how they used technology.” He said that it was important to take into account the age of a child, as very young children needed their screen time limited for development reasons, but that changed as they grew older. “For older children there are no signs that more time with technology is damaging, unless it begins to affect their ability to do other things in life; like sleep or schoolwork.” He said that parents could usually instinctively tell when their child’s relationship with technology was becoming unhealthy, and as that could look very different from child to child it was a situation where parents needed to trust their instincts. But in the vast majority of cases, he said that with sensible guidelines and open communication young people would more often than not make sensible decisions around how they used technology.



shburton parent Trudy Hulme has seen the issue from two perspectives; through her work in local schools as regional support co-ordinator of the Mid Canterbury’s Fibre Connected Schools network, and also as a mother of her own young children. She said that although the devices children were using were new, setting boundaries around using them came down to good old-fashioned common-sense. She disagreed with the blank two-hour limit recommended in the policy, and said that boundaries should be discussed and decided by each family based on their own situation. “Children are learning and communicating online. There are children with natural strengths as programmers and online developers, and they are going to need more time online to develop those skills. “There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a changing world, and building online skills is very important.”

Local children were often encouraged to use social media to connect, communicate and collaborate on school projects, she said, and it was becoming difficult to draw a line between entertainment and work use. “It comes down to balance, more than anything else. We’ve got to be willing to sit down with our children and talk about it, and come up with practical restrictions and boundaries with them that are going to work. “You’ve got to give children credit: they know technology, they know when it’s affecting them and they will often be happy to have a strategy to manage it.” She also said that some schools in the district were reporting more online bullying between parents than students, and parents needed to be careful to lead by example. “If parents are expecting their children to put the phones away at bedtime and mealtimes, that’s never going to happen if their children see them spending hours on Facebook, or leaving the table to take phone calls.”



shburton teen Finau Fakapelea said that although she wasn’t a “technology person” at all, she spent the majority of her time at home connected online. She said that, quite simply, it was convenient. “Things like Google Drive I use absolutely all the time, to get my work from school and add work that I do at home. And I’ll have my cellphone right beside me all the time.” The Ashburton College head girl said that although she hated technology, it made life way simpler and she didn’t know how her generation would function without it. However, she had a lot of sympathy for parents trying to restrict screen time. “Sometimes what we say is studying is not really study at all. Often kids will go on Facebook and say it’s just for a break – but end up spending an hour on Facebook and only 10 minutes on study.” She thought that boundries were important, especially for younger children, but said that it would be a lot easier for children to accept their parents boundaries if they felt that their perspective was understood. “If parents just shout about it then that’s never really going to help. “If parents make the effort to listen and try to understand where their kids are coming from, then I think they’d be a lot more likely to listen.”

1 - It took

Jesse Ryder just one firstclass innings following his return from a six-month suspension to have his name linked with an international comeback. Ryder hit 117 from 164 balls for Otago in their drawn Plunket Shield match with his old province Wellington in the capital this week.


- Last season the Boston Red Sox lost 93 games and finished bottom of the American League East. This season they won the World Series. The remarkable turnaround gave the Red Sox their third title in 10 years and made them the champion with the most defeats the previous season.

The sporting week in numbers

25 - Papua New Guinea may

not be typically associated with the sport of hockey and, on Thursday against New Zealand, it showed. The women’s Black Sticks showed no mercy in dispatching the world’s No 61-ranked side, running out 25-0 winners in pool play at the Oceania Cup in Stratford.

86 - New Zealand’s netball

team were almost as comfortable throughout their three-test series against Malawi. The Silver Ferns won all three games by a com-

bined margin of 86 goals, illustrating there remains something of a gulf between the top two and the No 5 side in the world.


- It would have been difficult to be too disappointed after he recorded 329 receiving yards in Detroit’s win over Dallas in NFL action on Monday, but Calvin Johnson may be wondering what could have been. ‘Megatron’ fell only seven yards short of the all-time record, set by Flipper Anderson in 1989.


- At 2.06m, Dominic Bird is set to tower above the pack when the All Blacks take on Japan on Saturday evening. The 22-yearold lock is set to become the tallest All Black ever but he will still fall some way short of world rugby tallest player, Scotland’s Richard Metcalfe at 2.13m.


- The Breakers’ defeat against Adelaide on Thursday night was noteworthy for the defending champions’ fourth defeat in a row, but also for the breakout of Reuben Te Rangi. The 19-yearold scored 22 points to haul the Breakers back into the game, surpassing his previous career high of 13.

history and the idea of 17,000 punters going to a game would be far-fetched - except for one man. Sadly for the French, Sonny Bill Williams will sit out Saturday morning’s game in Avignon due to a variety of bumps and bruises.


- The Black Caps’ tour of Bangladesh continues to go from bad to worse. After being held to a 0-0 draw in the twotest series, New Zealand have lost two one-dayers to cede the ODI series. The losses come after a 4-0 sweep in 2009 and give the Black Caps six straight 50-over defeats in Bangladesh.

14 - Brooklyn Beckham (be-

low) may be about to become to first of the burgeoning brood to follow in his father’s footsteps. The 14-year-old has been training at his dad’s beloved Manchester United and their coaching staff are reportedly considering offering Beckham’s first son a place in their academy. - APNZ

It was no laughing matter, especially as Tonga were upset by the Bravehearts 26-24.

Captain rewarded for sterling season By Jonathan Leask

Mid Canterbury’s Meads Cup winning captain Jon Dampney was rewarded for a sterling season by being named Heartland player of the year at the Mid Canterbury Rugby Union’s awards last night. Dampney took over the captaincy this season and led from the front reaping the reward when he was able to lift the Meads Cup after his side beat North Otago 26-20 in the final in Ashburton last week, where he had another strong performance scoring a try in the first half. It was also hard to go past Glenn Moore for the Neville Goodwin Memorial Trophy for Mid Canterbury Coach of the Year after he led the Heartland team to a maiden Meads Cup win in his first season at the helm. Mid Canterbury’s latest centurion Jimmy Carr was voted the Heartland team man, centre Dwayne Burrows who has been selected for the New Zealand Heartland XV was named back of the year and former Manawatu Turbo Grant Polson was the forward of the year. Heartland halfback will Mackenzie, also named in the Heartland XV, was presented the Cousins Cup as Mid Canterbury Sevens Player of the year. The Mid Canterbury Development team also had success this season lifting the Hanan Cup with David Lowrie named the development squad player of the year, Matt Winter the best team man, Will Hintz best forward and Niko Bueta best back. The under 18 representative player of the year was Toafa Touli, the under 16s had joint winners, Cameron McLeod and Sean McCormack, while Dallas McLeod was the under 14 player of the year and received the Robert Woodham Cup as player of the tournament.

Waaka were joint winners for the under 65kg and Richard Foaga in the under 48kg team. The men in the middle were also honoured with Kevin Opele named the Mid Canterbury Referee of the Year and presented the Ant McGirr Trophy. McGirr was also honoured with a special presentation for 20 years of service. The Life Members Cup for outstanding contribution went to Graham Shaw. The Findlay

Cup for commitment to refereeing went to Perry Hunt, Gary Clement received the Pierce Trophy as the most improved referee and the junior referee of the year was Matt Bell. For his years of continued service with team management Wayne Timpson received the Philip McDonald Cup, the Volunteer Service Award. The Mid Canterbury club season awards were also presented with Celtic the big winner be-

ing named club of the year. The open grade coach of the year went to Ashburton College 1st XV coaches Shane Enright and Mark Cook that led the team to their best finish in the Crusaders Secondary School tournament, a South Island Co-ed title and a trip to the national top four championship. JAB coach of the year went to the Allenton-Celtic under 16 team of Leighton Hood, Todd Greive and Warren Mackenzie.

The MB Roulston Cup for most points in senior rugby went to Southern’s Lee Armstrong, the Allenton Senior B team was awarded the Roy Smith memorial (for best conduct and dress). The Senior and JAB trophies were also re-presented, including Rakaia taking home the Watters Cup and Max Gilbert Challenge trophy in senior rugby, with runners-up Methven winning the Dave White memorial during the season.

Heartland duties beckon for Meads Cup heroes By Jonathan Leask

For four Mid Canterbury rugby players the season isn’t finished just yet. Mid Canterbury captain Jon Dampney, halfback Will Mackenzie and centre Dwayne Burrows were all named in the 24man New Zealand Heartland XV rugby squad for two internal matches. The trio will get to play on familiar ground with the Heartland XV playing their first

match against New Zealand Defence Force in Methven on Tuesday. They then play New Zealand Marist, featuring Mid Canterbury teammate Tukulua Tolu, in Timaru on November 9. The squad features ten debutants in the Heartland XV black jersey including Mackenzie and Burrows, while Dampney could be considered a regular in the side. In 2007 Dampney, Jason Gill and Brenton Connell were

named in a paper team and in 2008 six Mid Canterbury players made the cut to tour the United States with Dampney, Gill, Connell, Malcolm Cairns, Jason Rickard and Dan Dwyer. Dampney and Rickard were recalled in 2009 and in 2010 Mid Canterbury had Rickard, Dwyer and prop Tim Perry, who signed with the Crusaders for next season, made the squadwith Dampney overseas. In 2011 Dampney was back in Mid Canterbury and re-joined

Rickard in the Heartland XV. Last year was the first time since the inaugural Heartland XV in 2006 that no Mid Canterbury players featured in that squad. Heartland XV criteria doesn’t allow import or player of origin players to gain selection, with the criteria for the local players being a three-year residency rule to be eligible. There have been two changes to the 2013 Heartland XV. Buller’s Lee Nelmes broke his arm during the

Lochore Cup final while North Otago’s Chris Talanoa Talanoa was a late withdrawal from the Meads Cup final due to a quad strain and was unable to pass a fitness test for the Heartland XV side. Heartland XV Head Coach Kurt McQuilkin has called in West Coast flanker Alan Monk and Cameron Hayton, winger from Wairarapa Bush to replace the pair. Heartland XV v NZ Defence Force at Methven, 2.30pm on November 5.

Japanese ‘love to play t By Jonathan Leask


he All Black test against Japan tonight will evoke special memories for Mid Canterbury first five Murray Williams. The Meads Cup winner is a former Japanese international, getting to play out against the All Blacks at the 2011 rugby World Cup in Hamilton. “It was an amazing experience,” Williams said. “If you can’t play for the All Blacks the next best thing is to play against them. We got pumped on the night but just being out there and facing the haka was awesome.” Williams started in the number 10 jersey for Japan in the 2011 Rugby World Cup clash with the All Blacks, which the eventual cup winners won 837. Williams got his name on the score sheet converting the try from winger Hirotoki Onozawa. “We battled hard for 80 minutes and never gave up. We always knew it was going to be tough but the All Blacks were just too good.” Williams expects the same to happen in Tokyo today despite the All Blacks running out an experimental side, absent several frontline players. “Japan might compete for the first 15-20 minutes but the All Blacks have way too much xfactor. “I haven’t seen Japan play

for a while so I’m not too sure exactly how they are going to go or even who is in the team but the All Blacks will be too strong.” The game is being played at the 26,000-capacity Prince Chichibunomiya Stadium , the ground Murray said was where “they always play their test matches”, as opposed to one of the much larger capacity venues available which would suggest the match isn’t just a money-spinner for the All Blacks. “It will be good for Japanese rugby, they love the All Blacks. “The more exposure rugby gets in Japan the better it’s going to be especially with them hosting the World Cup soon.” Playing for Japan, against the All Blacks in a World Cup in New Zealand, wasn’t something Williams had ever planned on. “I wasn’t getting as much game time in New Zealand as I wanted and the opportunity came up to go to Japan. I played there for three years and became available, and only became available in 2011 and I thought they had their squad all sorted. “But JK (Sir John Kirwan) rang me up and asked me along to a camp.” He then made his debut against Samoa as Japan won the Pacific Nations in the lead up to the 2011 World Cup and went onto to play in three pool games of the Japans pool games, getting his only start against the All Blacks.

Kerr-Barlow keeps ne By GreGor PauL

N Will Williams be back? Murray Williams was an integral cog in Mid Canterbury’s championship run this season, considered by many to be the “best buy” in the Heartland Championship but Williams isn’t sure whether he’ll be back

to help the Hammers defend their title in 2014. “I haven’t even thought about it,” Williams said. “I’ve loved my time here but we’ll wait and see what’s happening in a year’s time.”

erves are a constant pre-match presence for Tawera Kerr-Barlow. He’s afflicted with high trait anxiety and he knows he’ll be overly tense ahead of making his first start today against Japan. He’s won 11 caps since making his debut against Scotland last year, but never worn the No 9 shirt. Today is a big day for the 23-year-old - a chance for him to display the qualities that drew the selectors to him last year. What they liked was his tenacity, physicality and ability to be so damaging around the fringes. The Chiefs went up another gear in their first title-winning campaign when KerrBarlow found the confidence to probe around the ruck and use his strength and ability to offload. Lively, influential and with the promise of more to come - now is the time for Kerr-Barlow to deliver. He’s not sure whether the presence of

Richie McCaw at No 8 and Daniel Carter at first-five is cause for him to feel less or more nervous. Not many halfbacks will ever play with a combined 220 test caps on either side of them. Neatly tucked between such experience and class, today could be an armchair ride for Kerr-Barlow: the easiest shift he’s ever had. But that’s not how it is with halfbacks. They are never there to quietly go about their business. The position demands a voice. There hasn’t been a halfback in world rugby who has been able to play five minutes without barking orders and helpful advice. A halfback has to take control, let the pack know what he wants and tell the backs what they are going to get. That’s what the All Black coaches want to see from KerrBarlow - authority, poise and control. Which takes him back to the issue of his nervousness being compounded by the knowledge that he is going to have to yell

Justin Marshall, Andy Ellis, Jimmy Cowan, Piri Weepu, Alby Mathewson, Brendon Leonard, Aaron Smith and now Kerr-Barlow. All of them have offered something different, but in terms of forceful personality, Carter reckons Cowan was the one who had the most presence. The former Highlander had no qualms telling Carter what he should and shouldn’t be doing. “Tawera has given me a thing or two this week to work on which is good,” says Carter. “But Jimmy Cowan [would be the most forceful character] probably because he was such a good mate of mine. He was always giving me banter. “He was a bit more confident so he would tell me when to pull my head in and when I could do things a bit better. Typical No 9s are not shy of telling you things you need to work on to make them look better.” - APNZ

ven in Tokyo, with its impenetrable mass of skyscrapers, Dominic Bird still appears to be a significant structure. At 2.06m he’ll become the tallest All Black in history when he makes his debut tomorrow. The man is huge - impressively tall - but there’s plenty more to him than height. He doesn’t owe his selection exclusively to his physique. There have been plenty of tall men over the years who have been promoted as potential superstars only to fade as quickly as they arrived. Size alone isn’t enough to survive at this level. England had the 2.08m Martin Bayfield whose best work wasn’t in the test arena but as the stand-in for the character Hagrid in the Harry Potter films. Andries Bekker at 2.08m is another giant who never cut it at test level the Boks never convinced he had all he needed. Wales used to pick a 2.08m bloke called Derwyn Jones. He won 19 caps but was universally recognised as soft - a giant lump who added little. The tallest of all has been Scotland’s Richard Metcalfe. At 2.13m he was simply enormous. He played against the All Blacks in 2000 but the fact no one remembers says it all. Bird is a little different, or at least the All Black selectors think he is. As head coach Steve Hansen has proven during his tenure, his selection template is dominated by skill-sets. Each position has a list of demands and if they aren’t met, the player doesn’t get picked. The 22-year-old Bird has ticked the relevant boxes. “The obvious one is that he’s tall, but he’s an athlete, he’s co-ordinated,” says Hansen. “He’s got physical attributes we like in the core role. He doesn’t mind hitting rucks. He’s still learning the game, but there is a lot scope there to work with. “We would have picked him in June so while it seems like we have rushed him into the team, he’s had a wee while to wait. He had a bit of adversity in June [ripping a muscle the night before the squad was revealed] and he coped with that really well, which is pleasing. “We are confident he’ll do a job for us and put some pressure on the other guys who are performing really well at the moment.”

The other part of the selection template that matters to Hansen is depth of character and maturity. In this regard, Bird scores highly. After finishing school in Hawkes Bay, Bird headed to London for a year, to live life, travel and not play rugby. He returned to New Zealand to take up a place at Lincoln University to study environmental management. It’s obvious there is more in his life than just rugby and that he’s mentally equipped to succeed. Potentially, his injury on the eve of being named in the squad back in June could have sent him into an emotional tailspin, but the fact he was able to return ahead of schedule alludes to his ability to absorb major setbacks. “It was definitely gutting,” he says. “But a lot of people told me it was only one setback and that I had a long career ahead. They told me to get to work and get it right, get back on the pitch as soon as I could. “With only two games under my belt [since returning from injury] it is an honour to come in and get into it straight away. But the boys around me keep reminding me I have a big job to do and to keep humble. It is pretty exciting.” Hansen is just as excited - as once Bird finds his feet at this level, the All Blacks are going to have an extraordinary array of talent at lock. Big men have been hard to find in the past and now the All Blacks have the 2.02m Sam Whitelock, the 2.04m Brodie Retallick and Bird, they have the firepower to continue their transformation into becoming the world’s best lineout side. This year they have improved out of sight their ability to attack opposition ball. They’re also better at winning their own and are now an intimidating presence on the touchline. “I think we are already seeing how we are operating at lineout time,” says Hansen. “It is going particularly well. “Throw Steven Luatua in there as well and he adds more height again, Kieran Read as well and there are four guys on the track at any one time who are massive men. Sam Cane, Richie [McCaw] and Liam [Messam] are all jumping options too if they are out there. We have led the stats in turnover lineouts from opposition in the Sanzar competition,” Hansen said. “[It’s] an indication that the extra height is helping us.” LEFT: Dominic Bird

Rower rules roost at awards By Jonathan Leask

Mayfield rower Emma Dyke reigned supreme at the Aoraki Secondary Schools Sports Awards in Timaru last night. Dyke was named the Aoraki Secondary School sportsperson of the year after the Craighead secondary school sculler’s stellar year on the water. It all started with a silver medal in the women’s pair at the Youth Olympics festival in Sydney in January, won a gold in the four at the open nationals in February under the Timaru banner and then at her final Maadi Cup National Secondary Schools Championship at Lake Karapiro she won silver in the under 18 pair and bronze in the under 18 double, coxed four and the eight. To cap it all off she made the New Zealand Junior Worlds team competing in Lithuania in August finishing fifth in the women’s four. While the ex-pat won the major award a number of locals picked up individuals honours in their chosen sports. Mt Hutt College had Nicole Purdom, who played for Ashburton college, win the girls rugby award, Phillippa Fleming the girls’ smallbore rifle shooting and skier Kenji Boekholt

win the sportsperson awards in their chosen sports. Mt Hutt’s Grace Sommerville and Ashburton’s Joseph Brown were the top swimmers and Ashburton claimed the double in the water skiing through Hannah Wright and Ben Mc-

Fadden. Ashburton also had indoor bowler Cait Basset, equestrian Emma Waite, and pistol shooter Braden Kell, superbike racer Baillie Perriton and cowboy shooter Wesley Baratcart were also honoured for their efforts

in the sporting arena this year. Savanna Ornsby was also honoured for her contribution to sport with the talented athlete giving back through coaching juniors and helping the Special Olympics athletes with their training this year.

Perriton fired up for new racing season

Bailie Perriton kept up his impressive form to start the superbike season, claiming victory at the annual Greymouth street race on the West Coast. After a commanding street race debut at Methven earlier this year where he came first in the 250 class and third in

the Bucket class, he was fired up and looking forward to the challenge of the technical West Coast circuit. Starting second on the grid and hunted down the leader to take the lead on the last corner metres before the finish line. Race two was a wet affair but he took the win and on a dryer track for the third and final race

he managed to claim the clean sweep. A week earlier Perriton held off some stiff competition from some experienced riders on much faster machinery for the one-hour endurance event to take a well-deserved runnerup spot behind Matt Hoogenboezem from Christchurch, with fellow Ashburton rider

Lewis Dray finished in fifth place. It shows that Perriton is looking sharp ahead of his second crack at New Zealand Super Bike Series in January where he will be pulling out all the stops to take the 2014 New Zealand 250 production title, and there are plans underway for Perriton to race in Australia next year.


Venus Williams to play in Auckland Seven-time grand slam tennis champion and former world No 1 Venus Williams will play in ASB Classic over the New Year. The five-time Wimbledon champion is currently ranked 53rd in the world and has battled health issues in recent years. It’s what derailed her appearance at the 2011 ASB Classic, when she was signed to play but pulled out. It adds more star power to an already good lineup that includes Ana Ivanovic, Laura

Ashburton’s Robbie Bell and Tinwald’s John Smitheram will represent the Aorangi region at the 28th Freyburg Masters at the Coringa Golf Club in Christchurch on Monday. The Mid Canterbury golfers are joined by Geraldine duo Jason Leary and Simon Wright and Timaru’s Peter Fox in the Aorangi team. Some of the most experienced golfers from the 15 provinces around New Zealand will converge on Christchurch for the event that in the past two years has seen two first-time champions, Canterbury in 2011 and Waikato last year. Auckland is the most prolific winners of the Freyberg Masters which began at Paraparaumu Beach in 1986, winning 10 titles but they haven’t claimed the title since 2003.

Mills to captain

Robson and Monica Puig. “It is a great privilege to have someone of Williams’ calibre here in Auckland,” tournament director Karl Budge said. “She is undoubtedly one of the all-time greats in women’s tennis. “It will be an once-in-alifetime opportunity to watch Venus’ powerful baseline and attacking all-court game up close - a real treat for those who snap up tickets to the ASB Classic.” Williams has enjoyed an il-

lustrious career spanning two decades, which includes seven grand slam titles, four Olympic gold medals and US$29 million in career prizemoney. Over the past 20 years, she has been named as the WTA’s Player of the Year, Glamour Magazine’s Woman of the Year and one of Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women in the World. Williams was also named Female Athlete of the Year at the ESPY Awards in 2002. - APNZ

Veteran seam bowler Kyle Mills will captain New Zealand for the first time in its one day and Twenty20 cricket series in Sri Lanka later this month. The 34-year-old Mills was named yesterday to lead New Zealand for the first time in a career of 154 one-day internationals in the absence of Brendon McCullum and Kyle Williamson. McCullum has returned from New Zealand’s current tour to Bangladesh to prepare for test matches against the West Indies in December, while Williamson quit the tour with a broken thumb. Top-order batsman Rob Nicol has been named to replace Williamson while Andrew Ellis replaces Ian Butler who has a back injury.

A real veteran When thumbing through the media pack at the Oceania Cup this week, one date of birth jumps out at you: 27/02/1954. It belongs to that of Samoa’s reserve goalkeeper Louis Strickland, who at 59 is still playing international hockey. Samoa are the definition of a sporting minnow when it comes to hockey given their ranking of 72 of 75 international teams, and Strickland, who first played hockey in the 1970s, was yet to get on the turf at the TET MultiSports Centre, with Moira Lealo being employed in goal, but said he wanted a chance to play during the weekend.

Ferns whitewash It was the rueful laugh that said it all. Asked if a 3-0 series win over Malawi went some way in erasing the frustration of a poor Constellation Cup showing against Australia, Silver Ferns coach Waimarama Taumaunu chuckled “well I don’t think that’s going to do it”. The Ferns wrapped up their season with another inconsistent showing against the Queens in their 72-39 win on Thursday night, as the ruthlessly clinical 60-minute performance they had been chasing all season eluded them once more. Malawi are a worthy test adversary and a tricky team to pin down, but the Ferns had lapses in each of the three tests that point to confusion in the ranks and backup combinations still trying to find their way. It was not the position Taumaunu would have hoped to be in heading into a Commonwealth Games year enduring their worst losing run to Australia in 15 years.

Samoan Saturday awaits Black Sticks

Arsenal eyeing Reid

New Zealand’s men’s and women’s hockey sides will probably be more concerned with how many passes they can complete than the final scores from their respective outings against Samoa today at the Oceania Cup in Stratford. While it’s all well and good to promote hockey to the Pacific Island sides, the gulf in talent between transtasman rivals New Zealand and Australia compared to the Island nations is vast. Racking up huge scores has been commonplace at the TET MultiSports Centre this week and today’s games will be no different. The Australian women were due to get proceedings underway this morning against Papua New Guinea before the men at 10am, followed by the female Black Sticks meeting Samoa at midday with the men to follow at 2pm. With New Zealand and Australia all but guaranteed to meet each other in tomorrow’s finals, today’s games will serve as a warm-up. Black Sticks midfielder Phil Burrows, a veteran of more than 300 internationals, said there were a couple of objectives his side wanted to achieve

Simon Child in action against Australia.

during today’s expected rout. “Just connections; making sure that we are not slacking off, keeping our standards high,” the 33-year-old said. “It’s a tough game to play because if you slack off people are giving you a hard time, but if you go too hard you’re getting

stick for that as well. So it’s just one of those games where you need to put in a good team performance and make sure everyone’s getting touches and getting a good vibe for Sunday.” Samoa, the world no 72, were beaten 32-0 earlier in the week by Australia and New Zealand

seem likely to rack up a similar margin given their status as the world No 5. On the women’s side of the draw, world No 3 New Zealand will no doubt add to their impressive tournament campaign with a victory over Samoa. - APNZ

Leuluai finally makes name for himself As the son of Kiwis great James Leuluai, Thomas Leuluai has spent his life trying to meet expectations. It hasn’t been easy at times. He became the youngest person to debut for the Warriors and second youngest to feature for Kiwis when he played as a

pimply 18-year-old but has been battling to prove his worth in this country ever since. It didn’t help that the most people here saw of him was in the annual Anzac test when he travelled halfway around the world and played the world’s best when trying to work out

what timezone he was supposed to be in. Rugby league fans in the UK have long since admired his talents as he guided Wigan to multiple titles but it probably wasn’t until midway through this year that Leuluai finally convinced most in New Zealand

he could play. Really play. It’s why it’s critical for the Kiwis he recovers from the troubling groin injury which has kept him off the park so far at the World Cup. He was originally named to play France but lasted only 30 minutes of training midweek. - APNZ

All Whites skipper Winston Reid is reportedly on Arsenal’s shopping list, with manager Arsene Wenger linked with a 6 million ($11.7m) bid for the West Ham defender in the January transfer window. The Gunners currently lead the English Premier League and are awash with attacking options, headed by new German signing Mesut Ozil, but lack defensive depth behind Thomas Vermaelen, Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker, and Wenger is said to be keen to add Reid. The 25-year-old has established himself as a first choice pick at West Ham since arriving from Danish club Midtjylland in 2010, helping the Hammers to the fourth-best defensive record in the English Premier League this season. He is approaching 100 games for the club and remains contracted until 2015, having signed a two-year extension last January. But West Ham could be willing to cash in on an asset who was brought in for an undisclosed - but thought to be minor - fee after Reid’s heroics at the 2010 World Cup. He is a quick and athletic defender who is good in the air and is also an attractive proposition because he would be eligible to play in the Champions League. Fellow Premier League heavyweights Manchester United and Liverpool have also been linked to the New Zealander, but Reid was thought to prefer to remain in London. - APNZ


Another loss, but Breakers not broken By Kris shannon The Breakers might be the best 1-4 team in the history of the Australian NBL. But there are no trophies for sides whose records are unreflective of their ability, and the real prize is slipping further away with every defeat. After last night’s heart-breaker against Adelaide, the defending champions have fallen into a worrying slump which could worsen when they visit Wollongong tomorrow. While the method hasn’t been all bad this season, the results are far from pretty. The Breakers lost just four games during their last campaign, which

brought a third consecutive title. It’s a total they have already equalled after three weeks. Since winning on opening night, they have dropped four straight to sit last on the ladder. The last time they experienced such a slide was the last time they missed the playoffs. The champs can say they were within one shot of beating Cairns, that James Ennis’ individual brilliance was the difference against Perth, that a second-half comeback against Adelaide would have been completed had Mika Vukona avoided ejection ... but four losses are still four losses. “There’s a lot of positives and we’re making little improve-

ments every week,” said centre Alex Pledger. “But we need to start turning those moral victories into actual victories. “Our record doesn’t suggest it but we are really close to where we need to be.” It’s true that a winning run doesn’t feel far away, that this stumbling start could soon be nothing more than an unpleasant memory. While the Breakers have been poor in patches - last night’s first quarter was appropriately ghastly for Halloween - the core elements that created this dynasty have also been on display. They still have a multi-faceted offence, they’ve produced rousing revivals and belligerence

on the boards, but the positives have been negated by the perfect storm of circumstances which brought about this disastrous start. Separately, none is enough to sink their season but, together, the combination of a new coach, new players and new rules have resulted in a flood of defeats. A bit of bad luck most also be thrown into the mix, along with a diminished aura of invincibility. With each defeat putting a dent in their armour, opposition sides now come to the North Shore Events Centre and Vector Arena - once twin fortresses with legitimate hopes of emerging with a win. The Breakers’ own hope comes in the form of

Sunday’s opposition, with Wollongong the only side they’ve had the wood over this season. “We have a short turnaround and Wollongong are a team we played well against last time,” Pledger said. “So we’ll go into that game feeling pretty confident we can walk out with a win.” Even if that confidence proves misplaced, the Breakers still won’t be in danger of missing the playoffs. Half the teams in the competition will play in the postseason, and two sides with losing records made last year’s semifinals. But another defeat would be another blow in a season already full of them. - APNZ

Status quo at council Coen Lammers EDITOR


he new Ashburton District Council was sworn in this week and despite the new faces, the first signs indicate that voters should not expect sudden changes. The elections have altered the make-up of the council and voters indicated some desire for change, but Ashburton Mayor Angus McKay clearly does not want to frighten the horses. Some of the urban voters may feel disappointed that three farmers have been appointed as chairpeople of the three council committees. They may also question why Donna Favel was only considered for the role of deputy chair of the finance and business support committee. As the highest polling candidate Ms Favel was tipped to become deputy mayor, but Mr McKay decided to continue with incumbent Darryl Nelson. Even though the full council makes the final decisions, the chairpeople, mayor and deputy mayor all play a vital role in setting the tone and direction for the meetings, so these appointments are more than just figureheads. Naturally there are good reasons for sticking with experienced hands, as new council members need time to get their feet under the table and get their heads around procedural matters. Also, the annual report indicates that the previous council has been a safe pair of hands on the district till after producing a $9.7 million surplus. More importantly, the $2.2m in interest payments on council debt were well within the limit of 10 per cent of the annual income, which was $54.7m. Change will more likely come from a different direction, from within council, with new chief executive Andrew Dalziel providing some fresh insights. The most striking example this week was the Guardian’s video coverage of the swearingin ceremony which provided a unique opportunity for our online readers to witness firsthand what goes on in chambers. The previous council had been reluctant to allow any video recording of their proceedings, but hopefully the new group will recognise the benefits for them and the community.

YOUR VIEW Committee chairs

Well done Finau

As a result of several new councillors being involved with the Ashburton Citizens Association and the Bridge Action Group - both groups associated with urban issues - the day after being re-elected as mayor Angus McKay eluded to the fact that he hadn’t given greater focus on the urban areas. So it’s disappointing to see the appointment of three farmers to chair the three committees: Totty - environmental services, Brown - finance and business and Wilson - service delivery and therefore, I challenge the mayor and the CEO of ADC to become signatories to the Urban Design Protocol within 12 months. Ed Gates

I have just read Finau Fakapelea’s column in today’s (Thursday) Guardian. What a wonderful role model she is, the issues she talks about are oh so common in young people. Ask any parent. I wish we had more people like Finau in our society. Proud mum of two teenagers (Text message)

Hi-ho, Methven! Away ... U

p until last weekend I always assumed that cowboys were confined to the US Wild West and hadn’t made it past the days of black and white TV. A visit to the Methven Rodeo soon proved me wrong and the lasso action ofa plethora of men in sparkly tasseled pants meant it was an experience I won’t be forgetting in a hurry. We entered the rodeo to the announcer likening the bronco riding to “trying to sit on top of a washing machine while it’s on full load”, but the whiteware similes soon gave way to more immediate concerns. As one young man scaled the interior arena fence, charging bull hot on his heels, the announcer made the astute observation that the bull’s horns were fatter than the fleeing man’s legs. As it turned out, the fence scaler was a clown, an integral part of the rodeo team. I had always associated clowns with children’s birthday parties, but the rodeo version of a man who encourages a bull to chase him was somewhat removed from the rednosed, frizzy-haired childhood stalwart. As cowboy protectors and decoys for the bulls following the rider’s dismount, their job is no laughing matter. I was also struck by how young many of the cowboys and cowgirls actually were. Open sheep riding aside, the number of teenagers who could wield a rope whilst galloping at speed was impressive. Perhaps when you have been immersed in rodeo since you were a young‘un (or even con-

ceived in a horse float, as the announcer helpfully introduced one young lass) it seems like second nature, but in central Auckland piano lessons and jazz dancing are more likely to be on a child’s weekly agenda than learning techniques for dealing with errant stock, so it was certainly an eye-opener. Our eyes were kept busy in other ways too, particularly when it came to taking the range of checked shirts available in the fashion department. Big checks, little checks, checks with rhinestones, checks to match the horse’s colouring and even one brave man who sported a checked shirt without any checks at all, his bold block colour choice standing out against the dust of the arena. My thin cotton effort with rollup sleeves was well and truly put to shame. It may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but the rodeo provided an excuse to pull out that cowboy hat that has been collecting dust ever since it was purchased on a whim at the $2 shop some years back. The barrel racing and bucking broncos were perfectly suited to the Mumford and Sons soundtrack, and all the proceeds go to local causes. Sure, it’s a far cry from the corner appeals on Queen Street, but the tassled outfits and muscled steeds beat the gimmicky dress-up fundraisers on the streets of Auckland any day. Hi ho, Methven!

In brief

Bosnia digs up mass grave Two decades after Serb soldiers conducted house-to-house searches in a campaign of ethnic killings in Bosnia, forensic scientists are digging up what could turn out to be the largest mass grave from the 1992-95 war. So far, the remains of 360 people have been found at the Tomasica mass grave discovered in September near the northern town of Prijedor, far more than expected, authorities said Thursday. The number is expected to rise and could one day surpass the 629 bodies found at Crni Vrh in Srebrenica. The Missing Persons’ Institute said the Tomasica grave is linked to a secondary one found in 2003 about 10 kilometers (six miles) away, where 373 bodies were extracted. Authorities believe the perpetrators of the killings moved parts of the remains from one grave to the other in a bid to hide the crime. In some cases, remains from the same person have been found in both graves. Institute official Mujo Begic said he expects more remains to be found at the Tomasica site, and the bodies are of Bosniak and Croat men, women and children killed in their villages during the war. “Together with the relocated ones, the number of the bodies here indicates the biggest mass grave so far found in Bosnia,” Begic said. “We have found some identification documents in the grave, so we know who these people are.” The grave covers over 5000

6.6 quake in Chile A 6.6-magnitude earthquake rocked north-central Chile, causing buildings to sway in the capital and nervous people to run out into the streets. But Chile’s emergency services office said no damages to infrastructure were reported and Chile’s Navy discarded the possibility of a tsunami. Chile is one of the world’s most earthquake-prone countries. A magnitude-8.8 quake and the tsunami it unleashed in 2010 killed more than 500 people, destroyed 220,000 homes, and washed away docks, riverfronts and seaside resorts. - AP

Many of the victims were killed in one of the three Nazi-style concentration camps Serb authorities had set up near Prijedor. Authorities hope some of the 1200 still missing from the area are now found in the Tomasica grave. The remains will be definitively

identified through DNA matching from samples provided by living relatives. Most of the victims were killed in their villages and brought to this location to be buried, but teams have also found bullets in the grave which indicates that some were brought here alive and that this was also an execution site, prosecutor Eldar Jahic said, citing evidence and witnesses. Near the grave, Vahida Behlic, 51, was sobbing as she watched forensic experts dressed in

white uniforms and green rubber boots carefully lifting bones from the site, where skeletons were piled on top of each other. She came from Slovenia, where she has lived with her family since she escaped her native village of Zecovi, near Prijedor. Behlic came with her husband and son because she thinks one of the skeletons could be of her mother Fatima who was 60 when Serb soldiers came, dragged her out of the basement and shot her in front of her house. - AP

Soda tax would work Slapping a 20 per cent tax on soda in Britain could cut the number of obese adults by about 180,000, according to a new study. Though the number works out to a modest drop of 1.3 per cent in obesity, scientists say that reduction would still be worthwhile in the UK, which has a population of about 63 million and is the fattest country in Western Europe. About one in four Britons is obese. Researchers at Oxford University and the University of Reading estimated a 20 per cent tax on soft drinks would reduce sales by 15 per cent and that people would buy beverages like orange juice, milk and diet drinks instead.

Fire insurers pay out

Flight rules change

Insurance companies are paying out more than $2 million a day for victims of the recent NSW bushfire disaster. Last month’s fires have resulted in $156 million in claims to insurers for damage to homes and businesses, with 95 per cent of claims already assessed, the Insurance Council of Australia says. Spokesman Campbell Fuller says insurers have been able to respond to more than 1200 claims coming from fires that were still burning only days ago. “Many claims will be settled for total loss, with insurance companies paying up to the extent of the policy,” he said. He said although insurers had been quick to respond to claims, the process of rebuilding would take time and customers should raise all

Airline passengers won’t have to “turn off all electronic devices” any more — they’ll be able to read, work, play games, watch movies and listen to music from gate to gate under new guidelines from the Federal Aviation Administration. But they still can’t talk on their cellphones through the flight. Don’t expect the changes to happen immediately, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said. How fast will vary by airline. Delta and JetBlue said they would quickly submit plans to implement the new policy. Airlines will have to show the FAA that their airplanes meet the new guidelines and that they’ve updated their flight-crew training manuals, safety announcements and rules for stowing devices to reflect the new guidelines.

concerns with their insurance provider. Insurance providers say some claims will take many months to be closed. The companies will hold combined forum for victims of the bushfires on November 12. - AAP

A 10-year-old Chinese boy jumped 30 floors to his death after failing to write a self-criticism letter demanded by his teacher, state media reports. The fifth-grade primary school student had been ordered to write a 1000-character apology by his teacher for talking in class, China National Radio (CNR) reported on its website, citing a neighbour. The teacher allegedly told him to jump out of a building after he failed to complete the task, the report quoted relatives and the neighbour as saying. - AAP

The changes apply to both domestic and international flights by US carriers, but the rules get a little tricky for international flights. On takeoff from the United States and during landing back in the US, passengers would be allowed to use electronics. However, when arriving or departing a foreign country, passengers would have to comply with local laws. Currently, most counties have their own prohibitions on electronic device use. However, they tend to follow the FAA’s lead and likely could relax their own rules in the near future. It sounded like good news to passengers heading out from Reagan National Airport. Ketan Patel, 24, said he’s happy that regulators have debunked the idea that the devices pose a safety problem. “If it isn’t a problem, it should be allowed.”

Nearly 100 African migrants hoping to escape crushing poverty met a grisly end in the desert, officials said yesterday, dying of thirst under the baking sun after their two trucks broke down in the middle of the Sahara before reaching Algeria. It took weeks for authorities to learn of the tragedy and for recovery teams to reach the distant site, where they found a gruesome scene including the remains of 52 children and 33 women. - AAP

Affair revealed A prosecutor electrified Britain’s phone hacking trial yesterday by revealing that Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson — the two most senior UK tabloid editors accused of illegal eavesdropping and bribery — had a secret affair lasting at least six years. Prosecutor Andrew Edis said the relationship between the two powerful editors — both former top Rupert Murdoch aides and associates of Prime Minister David Cameron — goes to the heart of the case’s key question: Who knew what during years of illicit activity at Murdoch’s News of the World and Sun tabloids? - AAP

We have NZ’s top cable jointer BY ERIN TASKER


Jonathan Ackroyd is New Zealand’s top cable jointer. Mr Ackroyd, from EA Networks, took out the title at the Electrical Supply ITO cable jointer competition in Christchurch last week. It was the third time he’d entered and after two fifth place finishes, this year it was third time lucky. The competition ran over three days and saw 12 competitors from across the country test their skills in eight different disciplines, ranging from electrical theory and first aid, to live low voltage joining and pit rescue – which involved rescuing a live person from a fire in a pit scenario. Being a cable joiner involves pretty much what the title says – joining cables. But you won’t find Mr Ackroyd climbing any power poles. “In the industry they say ‘up a pole, or down a hole’,” Mr Ackroyd said. And he’s down a hole. Although he’s second generation at EA Networks – his dad was a cable layer for 28 years – joining cables wasn’t Mr Ackroyd’s first choice of job. He started his working life in painting and decorating before starting at EA Networks as a labourer in the technical maintenance department. He’s worked his way up, learning on the job and loves being a cable jointer. “There’s not many people who can say that they like their job as much as myself; it’s a pretty cool job.” It’s busy as more and more lines go under ground. “Especially in urban areas and new subdivisions; people don’t want to see power poles. And rural townships are going through it, like Mayfield where all of the poles are old so they’ve been replaced with underground,” he said. EA Networks’ management were over the moon with his achievement, and some staff were given a day off to cheer their workmate on in the competition. “It was quite humbling actually, the comments and

Ackroyd’s happy and doesn’t plan on returning to defend his title next year. He plans to quit while he’s ahead.

uccession planning can be viewed as a prosperous end to a lifetime commitment to your business. It can also represent a new chapter in your personal life and the life of your business. At the end of the day, it is important to make sure your business is successful without you, regardless of whether you are planning to sell, retire, gift or take a more passive role. In small- to medium-size businesses, especially the rural sector, it is common for a single business owner to retain all the knowledge and relationships. This leaves their firm highly vulnerable after retirement or events such as marital breakdown, sudden illness or death. Unfortunately, many business owners deal with issues in a fragmented, ad-hoc or reactive way. They consult professionals only when the issue or opportunity arises or presents itself. The process can be accelerated if required, but normally results in a much lower return after sale or limits your exit options. You need to make sure you have your house in order if you want to protect your family, set yourself up for a comfortable retirement, ensure the ongoing success of your business or demand a high price when selling Planning should start early and you should think of it as a process and not an event. Include independent directors or advisers to oversee the process, focus on personal development and professional feedback, complete a stock-take of your business interests and think about setting target dates for transition. It’s not just about safeguarding your legacy, it also paves the way for you to take a more passive role in latter years. Careful planning helps reconcile different family interests and expectations, resolve awkward tax and financial issues and ensure continuity of the business. Theodore Roosevelt summed it up nicely when he said, “In any situation, the best thing you can do is the right thing; the next best thing you can do is the wrong thing; the worst thing you can do is nothing.” Succession planning is imperative for the long-term survival of any business.

The best and most cost efficient When we looked at getting our message across to as many of Mid-Canterbury’s population as we could, we found the best and most cost efficient way for us was the Ashburton Guardian.


Our news, online, all the time.

The way they help get our profile across each week helps us with the key messages we want to communicate to our customers. Our consultant is friendly and efficient and when we are unsure she is quick to step in with the designers and create us something perfect. Thanks Ashleigh and the team at Ashburton Guardian.

YOUR STARS by Forecasters

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20) You’ve got a chance to get your head around your financial options ahead of Monday’s solar eclipse and the powerful line in the sand this will draw. TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21) With so much coming to a head on the relationship front, you need to both keep it real and keep the communication lines open. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 22) You can’t know where you’re going until you can know and make peace with where you’ve been, turning past setbacks into a new sense of resolve. CANCER (JUNE 22 – JULY 24) As the Sun and Mercury align in your romantic and creative sector the long weekend provides plenty of time to find a balance between work and play. LEO (JULY 24 – AUG 23) With life destined to become busier and more work focused next week, the long weekend gives you extra time to address things around the home. VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 23) Where relationship tension has come to a head over recent days there is now a chance for rebuilding and to clear the air. LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 23) The long weekend is giving you a chance to step back and get your bearings, taking time out before the final 2 months of the year. SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) You’ll gain far more by taking a less is more approach to things over the long weekend. Take a guilt free approach to a need to simply unwind. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) You have a sixth sense when it comes people and situations, along with the hunches that could put you in the right place at the right time. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) The long weekend is providing a chance to chill out, relax and let your daydreams take your heart on a nostalgic trip down memory lane. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) In the lead up to Monday’s solar eclipse in your career sector and the new doors this will open, embrace a sense of adventure while you can. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) While you may need to keep your professional hat on over the long weekend this is a chance to step back and put things into perspective.
