College dumps streaming By Myles Hume A drastic move to lump pupils of mixed ability in the same class at Ashburton College has been backed by an education expert. Ashburton College’s long-standing system to put pupils of similar ability in the same class, also known as streaming, was scrapped at the start of this year for year nine pupils. Instead, a new-model introduced this year has seen year nine pupils of various academic abilities remain as a class throughout the day for most subjects, bar English and maths – which separately streamed pupils on their ability. Many parents fear mixing pupils of low ability with others who excelled would bring down the standard of the class. A recent Guardian survey found 77 per cent of parents who responded wanted to see their children in streamed classes. The college still uses a form of streaming for its year 10 pupils and senior pupils chose their own level. But Ashburton College principal Grant McMillan said initial feedback from the Education Review Office (ERO) was positive after one term of the new year nine model, and the college was now in the process of gathering concrete data on the “cross grouping” classes. “Let’s put someone in the A rugby team, they will be lifted by the stronger players, the strongest players have a lifting effect on others and that’s human nature, not just in the classroom, but in life too.” Pupils who knew they were in low band classes could lose confidence and motivation, Mr McMillan said. “Self-esteem and confidence can be lost quickly if you feel you are not getting any better or anywhere. If you can’t prove yourself or step up that can be disengaging.” His comments have been backed
by Canterbury of University research professor Garry Hornby who this week said streaming classes was “at best, ineffective and, at worst, detrimental to the education of many pupils”. The research found 14 out of the 15 secondary schools and 10 out of the 11 intermediate schools surveyed who used three-tier “ability grouping” limited the education of pupils. “Most of the benefits that were reported by interviewees were for teachers and schools, whereas most of the disadvantages concerned the negative impact of ability grouping on students, such as low self-esteem and increased behaviour problems,” Mr Hornby said. In the mixed ability classes, Mr McMillan said the stronger pupils could “peer tutor” those who struggled, which he said was also proven to be one of the best ways of retaining knowledge. A parent, whose child is in year nine at Ashburton College and who did not want to be named, said her son was disappointed with the level and pace some of his classes were moving at. Admitting her son was a bright pupil, she believed others with lower academic ability were holding the brighter pupils back. “But I know parents who have children in the middle and they are happy because it suits them, I guess it also depends on the teacher too,” she said. Principal John Schreurs said Mount Hutt College was too small to have a streaming system but catered for “students who were gifted or had gaps”. He said having classes of mixed ability “can be a bit more difficult” to manage for teachers, but the reality of streaming was “there were kids who felt they didn’t belong in the top class and kids below who felt they should be there”.

Prop-designer Cherie Livingstone (right) holds the 12.3 metre long dragon with her family (from left) Caleb, 12, husband Peter, Oliver, 11, and Charlotte 6, which was created for the Ashburton Variety Theatre’s landmark show Miss Saigon.
Dragon ready to roar at Miss Saigon By Myles Hume One of the most creative yet important props has come together only weeks before the Ashburton Variety Theatre opens the curtain on its biggest production for 2013. A 12.3 metre dragon made of papier maché, wire and red fabric
made the trip to the Ashburton Trust Event Centre from the Ashburton home of Cherie Livingstone, who has spent the past two months piecing together the menacing creature for the highly-anticipated Miss Saigon production. “We got most of the set from Wellington but two things didn’t come with it and the dragon was
one of them,” Mrs Livingstone said. Creating the dragon by copying designs she found online, Mrs Livingstone, who is also in the singing ensemble and scenic art group for the production, completed one of the more important props for the eight-show performance spanning from May 24 to May 31. The dragon will be unleashed
during dramatic scene The Fall of Saigon, effectively marking the end of the Vietnam War on April 30, 1975 when the South Vietnam city fell into the North’s hands. “It was pretty time-consuming to make, but if it wasn’t done the show would have had to have gone on without it, doing it digitally or in another way,” Mrs Livingstone said.
But it does not stop there for the prop designer either, after putting the dragon backstage, Mrs Livingstone has been tasked with making a gold bust of Ho Chi Minh, the revolutionary communist leader. Joining her on stage will be Mrs Livingstone’s children Charlotte, 6, Oliver, 11, and Caleb, 12, who will be extras for the show.
Man shot and tasered by police stable Aorangi Securities’ investors to The man shot and tasered by police in Porirua early yesterday morning is in a stable condition at Wellington Hospital. The two women who were injured in the incident are also stable, a hospital spokesman said. Police were still carrying out scene investigations at the house in Penguin Grove, Waitangirua, and a cordon was expected to remain in place for some time, spokesman Nick Bohm said. Police had not yet laid any charges against the man, and Mr Bohm said that would be considered today. The 47-year-old man was shot and tasered at the same time, when police found him allegedly
The application of lethal force is at the highest end of the continuum for us and it’s a very difficult and challenging situation the officers found themselves in
assaulting a 39-year-old woman with a knife and hammer. Police had been called to the property about 5.30am, and found a distressed 49-year-old woman outside with large cuts on her arms. Officers forced entry to the house and found the man standing over the second woman, who appeared to have been stabbed in the neck. Kapiti Area Commander
Inspector Paul Basham said he was confident the two officers saved the woman’s life. “The two officers needed to take decisive action and one of the officers present deployed a Taser and the second officer deployed a Glock pistol, firing a single shot and wounding a 47-year-old male in the shoulder.” All three people were taken to Wellington Hospital, where the man underwent surgery.
The two officers involved would be receiving welfare and psychological support, Mr Basham said. “The application of lethal force is at the highest end of the continuum for us and it’s a very difficult and challenging situation the officers found themselves in.” Mr Basham said the officers acted with a “great deal of professionalism and a big dollop of bravery.” The Taser used on the man was the old-style single-pronged Taser, not a new double-pronged version being trialled by police. The incident will be investigated by an officer from outside the Kapiti Mana region and the Independent Police Conduct Authority. - apnz
get most of their money back
Ashburton investors in Aorangi Securities were delivered the best possible news yesterday when they were told they can expect most, if not all of their capital to be repaid. They were among hundreds of investors around New Zealand who were looking at significant losses when Aorangi Securities tumbled as a string of businesses owned by Alan Hubbard faltered in 2010. The statutory managers of Aorangi Securities Limited and Jean Hubbard, widow of the late Allan Hubbard, said that “an amicable settlement” had been reached.
A Timaru High Court hearing had been set for later this month to decide on whether Aorangi Securities or the Hubbards owned $60 million of disputed assets. That hearing would have been key to whether investors in the failed group got most of their money back or only a third of the funds. Although terms of the settlement were confidential, “most, if not all” of the Aorangi investors’ capital would be returned over time, said receivers Graeme McGlinn, Richard Simpson and Trevor Thornton of Grant Thornton. “The process will involve the
co-operative realisation of assets, some of which are due to settle during June 2013. “Investor’s capital will be repaid progressively as funds become available.” As of February, the Aorangi investors had received 15 cents in the dollar, or $14.5 million of the $96 million owed. The next Statutory Managers’ report which is due at the end of July will provide an update on the asset realisation process for returning capital to investors. The May 20 court proceedings have now been dismissed. -APNZ

Benefit fraud A Lower Hutt woman has admitted receiving nearly $80,000 over eight years in social welfare payments she was not entitled to. Jacqueline Miriam Peke, 44, pleaded guilty to eight charges of falsely using a document and one charge of obtaining by deception at the Lower Hutt District Court yesterday. Anitesh Govind, who appeared for the Ministry of Social Development, said Peke successfully applied for the Domestic Purposes Benefit (DPB) in 1990. In February 2003, she began working for the Kokiri Marae Keriana Olsen Trust, but failed to tell the ministry. Peke falsely submitted forms to the ministry stating she was not working or receiving other income until December 2011 and continued receiving payments. She received $78,423 in DPB payments and $719 accommodation supplements, totalling $79,142, Mr Govind said. Reparation was not sought by the ministry but Mr Govind said Peke had made arrangements to repay the money. -APNZ

Apology over MP’s flare-up By Adam Bennett National MP Aaron Gilmore threatened to use his influence with Prime Minister John Key’s office to have a waiter at a Hanmer Springs hotel sacked after the man took issue with the Christchurch list MP’s “disgusting” behaviour, it has been claimed. Mr Gilmore yesterday morning issued two apologies for the “boisterous” behaviour of his group of four at the Heritage Hanmer Springs on Saturday night. Those apologies came after one of his dining companions, Christchurch lawyer Andrew Riches, confirmed he’d left a note at the hotel the following morning apologising for Mr Gilmore’s behaviour. Mr Gilmore allegedly called the waiter a “dickhead” when he refused him more wine and gave him his business card saying something like Aaron “Don’t you know who I am? I’m an important politician”, it was reported yesterday. It has also been suggested that Mr Gilmore told the waiter he would tell the Prime Minister’s office about his behaviour and have him sacked. Mr Riches yesterday afternoon confirmed he’d heard Mr Gilmore use words to that effect to the waiter. Mr Riches said he was disappointed that Mr Gilmore had apologised for his group’s behaviour when it was “absolutely” his own behaviour that was in question. “It’s a shame because I thought this could just lie, he could apologise and that would be the end of it, but to sort of blame everyone else ...”. He said that two of the four in Mr Gilmore’s group had left by the time of the incident. “It was because most of the group had already left, he was cut off service, he did the old, “do you know who I am, I’m an MP”.

“I thought it was just disgusting.” Mr Gilmore initially denied the claims but yesterday morning issued an apology via Twitter and a later press release saying: “As a group of diners our behaviour was at times boisterous, and I sincerely apologise for any offence this may have caused to staff and/or patrons”. “I intend to convey my apologies on behalf of the group to hotel staff, and understand that Members of Parliament should uphold, and be seen to uphold, the highest of standards at all times.” Mr Gilmore also said he planned to “pass my apologies on to the Prime Minister for failing to meet the standards I believe National MPs should uphold”. Mr Gilmore said hotel staff had unfairly blamed him for the behaviour of the group he was with, and he denied using his position as a politician. Mr Gilmore said the group of five shared four Gilmore bottles of wine over several hours, and he had had one beer before dinner. “I can’t be 100 per cent sure of everything I say after having a bottle and a half of wine, but I think someone has misinterpreted what was said.” However, he was “not aware” of being rude or making the alleged comments to the barman, he said. While “some inappropriate comments might seem to have been made”, they had been apologised for, he said. Mr Riches said he left the note for the waiter because he felt Gilmore had been “a bit rude” and he felt “a bit embarrassed by what happened”. Mr Gilmore, 39, was in Hanmer Springs attending a National Party regional conference, which was attended by Mr Key. A spokeswoman for Mr Key said his office had received no complaints over the matter but would look into any that were received. Hotel management declined to comment. - APNZ

By Gabrielle Stuart It will be a big weekend for vehicles of all shapes and sizes as Wheels Week Plus kicks off this year. The weekend’s activities will begin with a display of New Zealand and Australian speedway title cars on the Ashburton Green on Friday. The display will be followed by jam-packed events on Saturday and Sunday, including a parade, swap meet, motokhana, vehicle rally and rides, and a lot of rubber-burning racing. The Ashburton Vintage Car Club Swap Meet would kick off events on Saturday, and organiser Kathryn Shaw said the forecast was sounding good. She said they had over 300 stalls already registered for the meet, and more sites were still available but would go on a first in first served basis. As well as vehicle parts and tools for sale there would be collectables, clothing, art, household goods and even cars for sale, she said. The Ashburton vintage car meet was the first to be held in the South Island, and has grown hugely since its beginning in 1975. Club member Marie Bennett helped organise the first Vintage Car Club swap meet 35 years ago, and said that in those days the meets were often the only place people could find parts for their cars. “For many years car parts were the only thing sold there.

Heated exchange at council meeting By Sue Newman
tell us what you think
A war of words erupted during an Ashburton District Council meeting yesterday when the performance of Grow Mid Canterbury was challenged by district councillors. There was a brief flare of temper between the organisation’s chief executive Rob Brawley and councillor Stuart Wilson when questions were asked over Grow Mid Canterbury’s investment in the Methven hot pools project. “What or who gave you the manTXT THE EDITOR date to invest so much money in the hot pools,” Mr Wilson said.

Teachers hone their skills on e-learning The digital revolution continues in Mid Canterbury classrooms and local teachers are taking time away from class to extend their knowledge on educating today’s youngsters. Today marks the final day for most of the district’s teachers who are on a professional development course called e-nnovate at the Hotel Ashburton, honing their skills on e-learning. Mid Canterbury schools are among the leaders in modernday teaching, with all schools connected to ultra-fast fibre, and most already latching on to the evolving concept of iPads and technology in education.

Teachers gathered in small groups for a range of workshops which included the art of iPad management, what emerging
apps were useful for literacy and numeracy and where modern-day teaching was heading, among a host of other aspects. Schools across the district were regularly using tablets, and even Rakaia School was running an iPad-focused classroom. “All being connected, we can work together with the knowledge we are learning and the things we are doing and that’s going to ben-

Vaccinations mean K9s 8 K2; one parvovirus low here dies another seriously ill By Gabrielle Stuart
Many dog owners in New Zealand are having to make the tearful decision to let their dogs go, as cases of deadly parvovirus break out around the country. With treatment for the virus very expensive and often unsuccessful, estimated numbers of dogs put down when diagnosed with the virus are higher this month than numbers of diagnosed dogs killed by the virus itself. Veterinarian Gabrielle Thompson from Pets n Vets Ashburton said that while cases of the virus were seen in Mid Canterbury, it wasn’t likely to become the epidemic seen in other parts of the country. “The virus can survive in the soil for years, so we do see cases here. The difference is that because most dogs are vaccinated they have been isolated and haven’t spread. She said that large outbreaks of
the parvovirus were usually only seen where large numbers of dogs were not vaccinated. “I would guess that over 80 per cent of dogs in the district are vaccinated, and that vaccination is very effective.” Once a dog contracted the virus, there was very little that could be done. “Just like you see with viruses in humans there’s no way to stop the virus once it’s in the system. We can only treat the symptoms and support them through it.” Common symptoms of the deadly virus were lethargy, vomiting and bloody diarrhoea, but dehydration was the most common killer of infected dogs that remained untreated. Because the intestinal lining was usually damaged in the early stages of the virus, infected dogs would struggle to keep down food or fluids. In most cases they would need to be put on an intravenous drip for up to a week, resulting in a vet bill of about $1000. Vaccinating dogs against the virus costs less than $40 at most clinics.

Revelations that a dog in Southland has died and another is seriously ill as a result of eating K2, synthetic cannabis, is an alarm bell for people with pets, the New Zealand Veterinary Association’s Companion Animal Society president, Dr Catherine Watson warns.

on their little bodies are compounded. Recreational drugs and prescription medicines can and do have very serious consequences, even death, for the pet involved,” Dr Watson said. “Veterinarians, like their human medical counterparts, find it extremely distressing managing completely preventable poisonings.” Dr Watson said there is an easy answer to this issue – keep all potentially fatal chemicals and drugs appropriately contained and out of reach of pets and children. And in the event an accident with drugs and poisons occurs, seek prompt treatment through your local veterinarian.

Being the district’s fifth biannual conference, teachers chose from about 24 different work shops and also took in the inspiring words of guest speaker Rob Hamill, a marathon rowing champion. The conference also hosted four high-profile keynote speakers including Mike Scaddan, the chief executive of Brain Stems Ltd, and the director of educational technology at a Los Angeles high school Sam Gliksman. It will round off with a conference dinner tonight, followed by the guest speaker. Mr Leverton expected many teachers to be implementing their new-found knowledge when school resumes on Monday.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, May 3, 2013
To stream or not to stream, that’s the question A
shburton College this year has joined a growing number of schools to drop the streaming of their Year Nine children into groups of similar ability. The decision seems to be timely as research from Canterbury University this week showed streaming to be ineffective and detrimental for the majority of students. The streaming issue has been a hot potato for decades as parents and schools struggle to juggle the specific interests of every child, smart or not so academic, with our natural reluctance to classify and pigeonhole our children.
OUR VIEW Many parents are highly critical of the inclusive approach and feel it is detrimental to those that need or desire extra attention, whether they are gifted or have special needs, and may not meet their full potential. The research by Professor Garry Hornby however says that streaming is shown to be devastating for those who end up in the lower-ability classes. He argues that their self-esteem suffers a lethal blow and many simply give up trying, with some developing behavioural problems
as a result. The findings among 26 secondary and intermediate schools in Canterbury also show that there seems to be little benefit of streaming for the average student and that only the top students and those with special needs reap the rewards. The research also mirrors results from similar research in Britain where many schools use the streaming system, without the results to back them up. The findings in Britain also found that the ability of the

students was compounded by the fact that schools would align their best teachers with their most gifted pupils. Despite all this research many parents will remain unconvinced and hundreds of New Zealand schools would not have backed a system that does not work
for decades without seeing any benefits. The latest Canterbury research is compelling but it does not fully explain or predict how pupils will perform in combined classes. Ashburton College principal Grant McMillan says that underperforming students will be motivated by smarter children around them, not unlike an average rugby player punching above his weight in a better team. But what does it do for the more talented players? Using that same analogy, though it is not much fun to be one of the poorer players making up the numbers, and none of the research mentions how the self-

YOUR VIEW Local contracts Your leading article in this morning’s Guardian is not correct as the practice of not placing work locally has been going on for a long time. The case that springs to mind is the sale of sections in the business park. In spite of local real estate firms being quite capable of marketing these sections a Christchurch comany was appointed, with limited success. The commisions from these sales should have been available to local companies and no doubt would have been spent in our area. Let’s hope this practice will change after the coming elections and change of staff. Ralph Bassett

on this because I am convinced my boredom-inspired antics at school will have been detrimental for those sitting close to me and were unable to concentrate. Mid Canterbury schools are leading the way with Mt Hutt College and Ashburton Intermediate having already ditched the streaming theory and it now appears the research is backing them up. Let’s just hope all principals keep an open mind and keep tweaking their classrooms as both theories have considerable merit. Simply sacrificing the needs of a few to benefit the rest seems a heavy price to pay.

esteem can be knocked around by getting the lowest score in the class week after week. Instead, there must be some benefit and encouragement for underperforming students doing well among peers of similar ability in a streamed class. It is hard to believe that all of them become drop-outs or dropkicks simply because they are streamed. Some children will have behavioural problems in any environment, while the one-size fits all approach may actually turn some of the good students into bored, annoying critters as well.

Dead livestock Can you please not assume all your readers are in the farming sector and therefore comfortable with seeing dead livestock. As an animal lover I was very disturbed to sit down with my lunch today to read the paper only to see plastered over the front page a graphic image of a dead cow with blood coming out of its head. I’m sure I’m not the only one who would have found this image unpleasant. Wendy Black
Thank you I would like to take the opportunity, through this column, to say a huge thank you to the parents and families of those youngsters who appeared in our school holiday entertainment Hood. Without your tireless efforts to support us in our quest for the highest possible standards in young people’s dramatic theatre we could not have presented such a feast of entertainment at the Ashburton Trust Event Centre for children and families this school holidays. However, special mention must be made of the Ashburton Trust and the support we feel very privileged to have received this year from them. This is our fifth year as resident young people’s theatre company at The Ashburton Trust Event Centre and this was our eighth full scale production. Over the past five years it has been our pleasure to bring Ashburton a wide range of great drama ranging from Shakespeare to iconic contemporary work and
ground breaking new theatre in the shape of our acclaimed production of Sparrows. In Hood we presented our fabulous company with a fun comic challenge and the chance to further develop their acting skills by breathing new life into this ageold tale. It is our great joy to work with the talented young actors in our community; to watch their confidence grow and their performing skills develop. Theatre builds communities, those who watch and those who make it happen. We would like to thank all of you who purchased a ticket to see this show. In so doing you are not only helping us to pay for this wonderful opportunity for our young people but helping to keep young people’s theatre live and alive in Ashburton. In this endeavour we are indebted to the trust for helping enormously to make it happen. Thank you. Jackie Heffernan, director, The Big Little Theatre Company
Port Hills groper case Bitten to the bone heading to trial By Kurt Bayer The case of the accused “Port Hills groper” is heading for trial, with his defence telling a court yesterday that identification will be the key issue. Name suppression was yesterday continued for the 63-year-old Christchurch man who police say grabbed, groped, and licked 15 women on the popular running trails on the hills above the city. Christchurch District Court yesterday was told that the women would now be shown photo montages by police to try and identify their attacker before trial. Defence counsel Moana Cole said she was still awaiting full disclosure from police, and it had been a “very long and complicated road” to date. Most of the charges allege the offending happened last year, but one charge dates back to 2010. Ms Cole voiced concerns that police were pursuing a photo montage so late in proceedings, but Judge Phillip Moran saw no issue with it, given that the issue of iden-
tification was key to the trial. The man was arrested on Wednesday after allegations he had breached his bail conditions by returning to Huntsbury Hill this week. He appeared in court on Wednesday but collapsed in the dock. It was the second time he had suffered an asthma attack while in court. Judge Moran allowed him to sit in the rear of the court yesterday, beside an interpreter, while his case was heard. Ms Cole said her client, a refugee, denied the bail breach. Judge Moran noted the allegation was being contested as he set down a new status hearing for May 23. He continued name suppression. The man’s country of origin is also suppressed. Ms Cole earlier said that the man’s family had taken a decision not to tell their small, local community which has strong ties with the Islamic community. She said that if the man’s alleged behaviour become known, the whole family would be “permanently ostracised”. - APNZ
A bull mastiff dog bowled an elderly Runanga man over and tore a large chunk out of his arm - to the bone - in a gruesome attack. Jimmy Hambley, 81, said he got the fright of his life when he was viciously attacked by the dog that had strayed on to a Ballance Street property he was visiting on Wednesday. Recovering at home, Mr Hambley said he was delivering a letter to someone at the address when the dog pounced. “I entered the property and the dog was just lying there. I walked past it and was about to knock on the door, and then it attacked.” Mr Hambley did not get much warning. He heard the dog growl, then it jumped up and latched on to his arm. “It all happened so quickly. I was knocked to the ground and the dog had a firm grip, then I roared at it to go away.” Thankfully, he said, the dog released his arm and he scrambled back into his truck. “A fellow from across the road saw it happen and came to help, and the people from the house I was visiting gave me a towel to wrap up my arm with. “It was bloody sore - I could see
the bone and I knew it was bad,” Mr Hambley said of the gaping, 15cm-long wound. “All the layers of my skin had gone. There were bits of skin in my jersey.” He was taken to hospital by ambulance, where the wound was stitched up. “I couldn’t tell you how many stitches I’ve got, but there’s heaps of them, and there is still a big chunk that has no skin on it. “If it doesn’t heal I might have to have a skin graft.” The injured pensioner was relieved it was him who was attacked and not a child as the repercussions would have been much worse. He did not sleep well on Wednesday night: “I kept seeing the dog coming at me. I would never trust that dog again, if it was mine.” For now he just wants his arm to heal and try to forget about the whole ordeal. Grey District Council dog control officer Murray Malloch said yesterday the dog had not been put down. “We still have it locked up at the pound and a decision on its fate will not be made until we have completed our investigation.” - APNZ
The Inland Revenue Department’s computer system was back up and running yesterday afternoon after it crashed earlier in the day. The system crashed just a day after it was announced a $1.5 billion upgrade would be rolled out over 10 years. APNZ phoned both the 0800 number and the regional numbers which said the computers were down. A recorded message said: “due to our computer system being temporarily unavailable we may not be able to assist you with you inquiry - if you still wish to speak to our staff we will be with you as soon as possible”. An IRD spokesman said it was looking into the problem but could not comment until it knew more. A customer who did not wish to be named said she had tried to contact IRD yesterday morning with a provisional tax query. She said she phoned both the 0800 number and a Wellington number and was told to enter her details and had to wait for awhile before she was told the computer systems were down. She said the helpline was also overloaded whenever a tax date loomed. Provisional tax payments are due on May 7. “As a business owner this is very
frustrating - earlier in the year the IRD’s telephone staff told me I had a provisional tax payment due on May 7. “Even if the computer is down the system should still take people’s names and numbers and call them back,” she said. A spokesperson for Revenue Minister Peter Dunne said the problem had been caused by some staff members not being able to log in yesterday morning. A spokesman for the department said that due to a technical problem, some staff were not able to receive or send email. “However, the service has been fully restored. This incident is not related to the recent issue with our email gateway,” the spokesman said. Documents released on Wednesday showed the IRD computer system had been at risk for at least three years and seriously in need of the $1.5b upgrade. Mr Dunne on Wednesday announced the upgrade - the largest overhaul of any government IT system. He said it was “fully stretched” and a 10-year project to upgrade the system was required. The upgrade is scheduled to take 10 years, but could be longer. Mr Dunne said IRD’s functions had changed since its computer systems were launched in 1991. - apnz
Decision to euthanise cheetah cubs ‘agonising’ By Kurt Bayer Orana Wildlife Park vets made the “agonising decision” to put down three newborn cheetah cubs who were abandoned by their mother at birth. Veterinary professionals and staff made the difficult decision to euthanise the baby cubs yesterday morning. First-time cheetah mother Mazza gave birth to a litter of at least five at the Christchurch zoo on Saturday, with two found dead in their enclosure. The three survivors - a female, and two males - have been fighting for their lives ever since, with zoo vets and voluntary staff working round the clock to feed them and give them a fighting chance at survival. But, all three animals deteriorated overnight and the zoo yesterday took the “agonising decision” to put them down. “The decision was made in consultation with our vet who has over 20 years’ experience caring for our animals, particularly cheetah,” says chief executive Lynn Anderson. “In our situation we have an absolute duty of care to provide the highest standards of welfare and to ensure a life worth living is provided to all animals we manage. “Unfortunately the condition of the cubs was such that they were only being kept alive through 24 hour intensive veterinary care and could not otherwise survive.” Zoo staff watched the births first unfold on CCTV, and think they may have seen Mazza eating two of her new babies. They raced to the cheetah enclosure to rescue the three surviving cubs. The surviving trio had initially responded well to being cared for around the clock in incubators at Christchurch’s After Hours Veterinary Hospital. But their fortunes have contin-
ued to fluctuate as zoo staff, and volunteers from the vet hospital, worked around the clock, bottle feeding them formula, and giving them immune-boosting blood top-ups taken from their absent mother. “From the outset we had obvious concerns for these animals and we have since experienced many ups and downs in their condition,” zoological manager, Rob Hall said. “Overnight the cubs regressed further though and we were very worried that the animals had not significantly improved over the week. “For example, by this stage (five days) the cubs should weigh around 700g but the biggest only weighs 589g. We made the right decision for the cubs; we could see that they weren’t going to make it.” The cubs have been sent for an urgent post-mortem to ascertain the full cause of their problems. “This documented case history now extends our knowledge of the species, not just for Orana but for the international breeding programme,” Ms Anderson said. “We have been overwhelmed by the level of support from the community and media surrounding the cubs and we sincerely thank everyone for their best wishes and interest.” First time cheetah mothers often lose their litter due to inexperience. It’s not unusual for mothers to eat their young, or abandon them. Mazza, 4, was also born at the park and she, along with her three brothers, was hand-raised by park staff when their mother rejected them. Cheetah are a flagship conservation species for Orana Wildlife Park. Only a small number of zoos worldwide have experienced repeated breeding success with the species. To date, 18 cats have been raised to adulthood at Orana. - APNZ

Dalai Lama slighted By Chris Morris Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull has apologised for his “slight” against the Dalai Lama, but will not explain an email exchange that may shed light on his decision to sidestep the spiritual leader’s visit. Mr Cull issued a statement yesterday apologising for his earlier comments, which he said had characterised the Dalai Lama as “the leader of a minority sect”. “While I understood I was speaking about the Dunedin context that is no excuse for what was a dismissive and unnecessary slight. “I sincerely regret my remarks and an offence to anyone including His Holiness and the Buddhist community both here and elsewhere,” Mr Cull’s statement read. Dalai Lama Visit Trust New Zealand trustee Neil Cameron said he had also received a “sincere” apology from Mr Cull by telephone yesterday. “We believe it was a noble act on behalf of the mayor, and we respect him for it.” However, Mr Cull yesterday refused to discuss an email exchange he had with Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade staff about the Dalai Lama and China. The exchange took place on March 28, when Mfat staff responded to a request from Mr Cull, an Mfat spokesman confirmed yesterday. The exchange was revealed by an Official Information Act request by the Otago Daily Times,
but Mfat staff would not release a copy yesterday. To do so “would likely prejudice the international relations of the Government of New Zealand”, the spokesman said. Earlier this week, Mr Cull denied receiving any outside advice on the Dalai Lama’s visit from China, Chinese officials or anything similar. Mr Cull would not discuss the emails yesterday, initially saying he had not seen the information released by Mfat. After being emailed a copy, Mr Cull said it would be “remiss and inappropriate” of him to discuss it. The fallout began after comments made by Mr Cull on Monday, while defending a decision not to introduce the Dalai Lama at next month’s public talk in Dunedin. Mr Cull said he was unavailable because of a meeting in Wellington, but also questioned the benefit of engaging with “the representative of a minority religious faith”. The comment prompted angry criticism, a protest by four members of Dunedin’s Buddhist community, and plans for a larger rally tomorrow. Mr Cull also said at the time he was “very conscious” of China’s views, but had not been swayed by any threat to Dunedin’s economic interests in Shanghai. Mr Cameron did not want to comment on the email exchange, saying he considered Mr Cull’s apology “the end of the matter for us”. - APNZ

Yet he was always confident police would one day get their man. After a year of case-building, Detective Inspector Mark Loper approached Hallett in a Rotorua bakery in late 2011 - apparently while the pensioner was buying a corned beef sandwich. Mr Loper said on Wednesday: “All files, especially homicide files, are reviewed regularly ... “So you know, through time, people [offenders] might think that they may be free to reign and have stopped looking over their shoulder, but this was a classic case where sometimes the police will come and tap you on the shoulder.”

Her husband will be sentenced in July. Roger Bryant, Mr Tahu’s former boss as owner of the Shell service station when the killing occurred, said that “justice has finally prevailed” for his old friend. Mr Bryant said he, his wife and son Anton were preparing for a dinner to celebrate the guilty verdict. Like Mr Hawkins, he had often thought of Mr Tahu and how his killer had never been brought to justice. “But I never put it aside because I knew justice would prevail some day. It was just a matter of waiting, and thank goodness the waiting is all over now. I’m getting a bit emotional.” - APNZ

Cold-case cop: We knew we’d get him When Rex Hawkins retired as a detective in 1990, a troubling loose end stuck in his mind. An innocent family man had been shot in cold blood outside a service-station, and no one had been brought to justice. It had fallen upon Mr Hawkins to act as the Taupo police’s support person to the grieving whanau of victim Rodney Tahu, a loving father and Saturday morning rugby referee. But what burned inside Mr Hawkins then and ever since was that he had always known the identity of the man who pulled the trigger. He had even arrested Menzies Reginald John Hallett just over 24 hours after the 1979 shooting in a dramatic early-morning armed stand-off near the Napier-Taupo Rd. But Hallett then walked free from court, the Crown unable to use the crucial evidence of his estranged wife Susan Sharpe, to whom he had made a shocking confession just hours after the killing. On Wednesday, however – after a law change allowed a jury to hear Mrs Sharpe’s evidence during a two-and-a-half-week trial in the High Court at Rotorua Hallett did not walk free. The 72-year-old was found guilty of Mr Tahu’s murder. Mr Hawkins said on Wednesday night: “Living with the knowledge for 33 years of who the offender was, and not being able to place him before the court, has been difficult. “Having seen the pain and hurt the family suffered, it’s been very frustrating to know of the admission Hallett made to his ex-wife, knowing that this wasn’t able to be used by the prosecution, and me knowing he was the killer. “So it’s a real relief to see his conviction at long last and I hope it brings some satisfaction to the Tahu family and gives them some

By Ben Chapman-Smith Petrol prices reached their lowest levels in nine months last month, according to the Automobile Association. Prices fell 12 cents last month, with 91 octane down to $2.05 per litre in the main centres. Diesel dropped 10 cents per litre to $1.42 a litre at most service stations, the lowest price since July 2012. This time last year, New Zealanders were paying $2.20 a litre for 91 petrol and $1.57 a litre for diesel.
Mark Stockdale, AA’s PetrolWatch spokesperson, said petrol prices have fallen 16 cents per litre and diesel 13 cents since mid-March. “However, the AA’s monitoring of commodity prices shows that since the last retail price increase in midFebruary, the imported cost of petrol has fallen nearly 19 cents per litre, and diesel 16 cents,” Stockdale said. “That means fuel companies have not passed all of the lower costs on to motorists, although some service stations have discounted prices below $2 a litre.” – APNZ
Skellerup cuts earnings forecast Skellerup, the industrial rubber goods maker, has cut its annual earnings guidance for a second time after the drought across the North Island sapped demand at its agri business as farmers put off buying until next season. The Auckland-based company expects net profit of $17 million in the year ended June 30, down from trimmed down guidance of $20 million it gave in February, from a previous forecast range of between $22 million and $24 million. The manufacturer blamed the drought for weaker local demand, and also signalled its North American and European sales were tracking below forecasts. “Sales of both dairy liners and rubber footwear have been below expectations,” chief executive David Mair
said in a statement. “Whilst the very recent rain is a welcome relief for our customers and Skellerup, we will not fully recover the deferred sales within the current financial year as farmers will delay some of their buying till the new season.” The Treasury predicts the drought across the North Island will cut gross domestic product by 0.7 per cent in the current financial year. The arid weather has weighed on business confidence in the agriculture sector, though the reduction in supply has helped elevate prices for dairy farmers.

Describing the country’s current arrangements as “one of the increasingly competitive electricity markets in the world”, the Business New Zealandled initiative asks: “With the good of all New Zealanders in mind we ask you to withdraw these damaging policies” which would “severely undermine business confidence.” The open letter signed by the leaders of 10 business lobby groups, the Major Electricity Users Group, the mining industry lobbyist Straterra, and numerous regional affiliates of Business NZ, the country’s largest business lobby group. The letter was published shortly after Greens co-leader Metiria Turei called separately for the government to halt further asset sales. He said reported approaches to major investment houses about joint lead manager roles for the partial sale of Meridian Energy and Genesis Energy was inappropriate. It effectively means business leaders, including major power users, would rather pay more for electricity than they would under the Labour-Greens scheme, which they fear will return New Zealand to policies the letter says have failed in the past. It would also have a “chilling effect” across the economy, costing jobs, because it would destroy around $3 billion of value in the electricity industry, both private and government-owned. The Labour-Green policy would abandon the current wholesale electricity market arrangements, developed over the last 25 years and believed by many to have produced higher than
Metiria Turei necessary power prices. Instead, it would set up a central government agency to buy all electricity and resell it to retailers and major users, regulate the industry, and decide when to build new power stations. Such policies “have been shown to be incapable of meeting the challenges of a modern economy with a complex, real-time electricity market,” the open letter says. “Putting aside the sheer complexity of their implementation, policies that protect businesses from the full costs of the inputs they use ultimately dull the incentive to innovate and make them less, not more internationally competitive. “Reducing retail prices below the full marginal cost of production encourages households to use more than they should.” “Business shares your concerns about constantly rising power prices and their impact on our global competitiveness”, but did not believe “policies based on subsidies and greater state
control are the right answers,” the letter says. That approach “causes interest rates to rise, depletes retirement savings held in KiwiSaver accounts and means that other economic opportunities ... are foregone. Individuals are less welloff as a result.” In her statement, Turei said: “National’s rush to sell the three electricity SOEs before the end of the year is anti-democratic, financially unsound, and will leave retail investors exposed when NZ Power reduces electricity prices.” The Labour-Greens policy is thought likely to have dimmed investor appetite for the MightyRiverPower share float, retail investor registrations for which close tomorrow. However, Wellington investment house Woodward Partners this week predicted an issue price of $2.60, near the middle of the $2.35 to $2.80 range nominated when the MRP prospectus was released on April 5, and placed implementation of the new policy as only the 10th most significant business risk MRP faces. Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei responded by saying her party would not withdraw its policy. “The Greens make no apologies for wanting to get power prices down to a fair level. Business New Zealand and National seem to think that electricity companies’ profits matter more than lower power bills for families and businesses.” Ms Turei said it was important to note that firms Business NZ was supposed to represent would benefit from the plan. “NZ Power will reduce electricity costs to business by around $200m a year, allowing them to expand and hire more people. That’s why groups like the Manufacturers and Exporters Association have come out in support of our plan.” – APNZ

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, May 3, 2013
5-year-old kills sister with gifted gun A five-year-old US boy accidentally shot his two-year-old sister to death with a rifle he had received as a gift last year, authorities said. The children’s mother was home at the time but had stepped out to the front porch for a few minutes and “she heard the gun go off”, Cumberland County Coroner Gary White said. He said the rifle was kept in a corner, and the family didn’t realise a bullet was left inside it.
White told the Lexington Herald-Leader newspaper the boy received the .22-calibre rifle, especially made for children, as a gift. White identified the gun as a Crickett, referring to a company that specifically makes guns, clothes and books for children. “It’s a little rifle for a kid ... The little boy’s used to shooting the little gun.” The shooting, while accidental, highlights a cultural divide in the
US debate over gun control, which again became a top issue after 20 young children and six adults were shot dead at a Connecticut school in December. While many urban and suburban areas work to keep guns out of the hands of children, it’s not uncommon for youths in rural areas to own guns for target practice and hunting. “Down in Kentucky where we’re from, you know, guns are passed down from generation to generation. You start at a young age with
guns for hunting and everything,” White said. “Accidents happen with guns. They thought the gun was actually unloaded, and it wasn’t,” the coroner said. White said the girl died of a single gunshot wound to the chest area. It is not clear whether any charges will be filed, said Kentucky State Police spokesman Trooper Billy Gregory. The AP is not identifying the
children because of their ages. Keystone Sporting Arms produced 60,000 Crickett and Chipmunk rifles in 2008, according to its website. It also makes guns for adults. The smaller guns come in all sorts of colours, including blue and pink. The company’s slogan is “my first rifle”, and its website has a Kids Corner section with photos of children at shooting ranges and on bird and deer hunts.
“The goal of KSA is to instill gun safety in the minds of youth shooters and encourage them to gain the knowledge and respect that hunting and shooting activities require and deserve,” the website said. No-one at the company answered the phone yesterday. A package of gun control measures proposed by President Barack Obama after the December school shooting has largely failed so far in Congress. – AP
Police to track dementia patients via satellite A British police force is hoping to save time and money by giving a few dementia patients GPS tracking devices, a move condemned by some campaigners as “barbaric”. Last week, Sussex police announced a plan to buy GPS devices for 15 people with dementia who are at high risk of getting lost. The device can be worn around the neck or attached to a key-
chain. It sends the person’s GPS location to a website every four minutes. Chief Inspector Tanya Jones described it as a “cost-effective” strategy, which would save police time and money by not having to frequently search for lost patients. The National Pensioners Convention yesterday slammed the idea as inhumane and said patients could be stigmatised and made to feel like criminals. – AP
reports said Roache would not appear in the soap while investigations continue. Roache issued an apology in March after appearing to suggest that sex abuse victims were being punished for past sins, and calling for anonymity for those accused of child sex offences. In another interview last year, Roache claimed to have slept with 1000 women. Roache Guinness World Recor ds lists Coronation Street as the world’s longest-running soap opera following the cancellation in September 2010 of the US show As the World Turns, which ran from 1956 on CBS. It also lists Roache as the longest-serving soap actor. British police have arrested a series of celebrities since sex abuse allegations against the late BBC presenter Jimmy Savile emerged last year, although the allegations against Roache are unrelated to Savile. Top British publicist Max Clifford was charged on Friday with 11 counts of indecent assault, while former glam rocker and convicted paedophile Gary Glitter, comedian Freddie Starr and radio presenter Dave Lee Travis have been arrested and bailed. – AFP

• Sex slave ring US authorities say young Mexican women were driven to rural New Jersey and forced to have sex with 25 farmworkers a day or were confined to dingy brothels in the New York City area, being paid very little or nothing at all. A criminal complaint charges 13 people with smuggling dozens of women into the United States and forcing them into prostitution. Some of the defendants were to appear yesterday in federal court in Manhattan to face multiple counts including sex trafficking and interstate transportation for prostitution. The ring “lured their unsuspecting victims to the United States and then consigned them to a living hell”, US Attorney Preet Bharara said. – AP
Scientists revealed yesterday that they have found the first solid archaeological evidence that some of the earliest American colonists at Jamestown, Virginia, survived harsh conditions by turning to cannibalism. For years, there have been tales of people in the first permanent English settlement in America eating eating their own dead to stave off starvation, but archaeologists had been skeptical of those stories. But now, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and archaeologists from Jamestown are announcing the discovery of the bones of a 14-year-old girl that show clear signs that she was cannibalised. Evidence indicates clumsy chops to the body and head of the girl, who appears to have already been dead at – AP the time.

Face transplant recipient reveals new face A US woman revealed her new face after a transplant yesterday, six years after her ex-husband disfigured her by dousing her with industrial-strength lye, and said she went through “what some may call hell” but has found a way to be happy. Carmen Blandin Tarleton had face transplant surgery in February and spoke publicly for the first time at a news conference. “I’m now in a better place, mentally and emotionally, than
I ever could have imagined six years ago,” Tarleton said. “I want to share my experience with others, so they may find that strength inside themselves to escape their own pain.” In 2007, the 44-year-old mother of two was attacked by Herbert Rodgers, who believed she was seeing another man. Police say he struck her with a bat and poured lye from a squeeze bottle on to her face. When police arrived, Tarleton was trying to crawl into a show-
er to wash away the chemical, which had already distorted her face. In 2009, Rodgers pleaded guilty to maiming Tarleton in exchange for a prison sentence of at least 30 years. A Boston hospital said more than 30 surgeons, anesthesiologists and nurses worked for more than 15 hours to replace skin, muscles, tendons and nerves in the face transplant. The face donor was Cheryl Denelli Righter, who died of
a sudden stroke, a hospital spokeswoman said. Righter’s daughter, Marinda, told Tarleton yesterday that she looked beautiful, adding she was certain her mother had somehow picked Tarleton. “They are both mothers, they are both survivors, they are both beacons of light,” she said. Tarleton, who is legally blind, thanked Righter’s family for what she called “a tremendous gift” that’s greatly alleviated the – AP pain she’d felt daily.
Three charged with Boston bombing cover-up Three 19-year-old friends of one of the alleged Boston bombers have been charged with trying to cover his tracks by throwing out fireworks and a laptop and then lying to US police.

Longest-serving soap star on rape charges British police will charge Coronation Street star William Roache, the longestserving star in the world’s longest-running soap opera, with two counts of rape, the Crown Prosecution Service says. Roache, 81, has played lothario Ken Barlow in the series portraying life in a fictional northern English town since its first episode on William December 9, 1960. He was arrested at his home in north-west England over allegations of raping a 15-year-old girl twice between April and July 1967. Prosecutor Nazir Afzal said: “We have carefully considered all the evidence gathered by Lancashire Police in relation to William Roache following allegations of rape. “Having completed our review, we have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest for Mr Roache to be charged with two offences of rape relating to a girl, aged 15, in 1967.” Lancashire police earlier announced they had detained an 81-year-old man from Wilmslow in Cheshire. Broadcaster ITV, which makes Coronation Street, said it was not in a position to comment, but

after seeing his picture on television three days after the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing, which killed three people and wounded more than 260 others. Tsarnaev is accused of carrying out the bombing with older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, who is said to have masterminded the attack and was gunned down in a police shootout, hours after the pictures were released to the
media. Officials have said they believe the two ethnic Chechen brothers acted alone, but authorities are probing a six-month trip taken by Tamerlan to the restive North Caucasus region of Russia in 2012. According to the formal complaint released by the Justice Department, Kadyrbayev texted Dzhokhar the night of April 18 after the images went public, say-
ing one of them looked like him. Tsarnaev responded, texting “lol” (laughing out loud) and “you better not text me.” According to the charge sheet he also also told Kadyrbayev: “I’m about to leave if you need something in my room, take it.” The three friends then met at Tsarnaev’s dormitory room on campus and watched a movie while waiting for him to return.
Then they noticed a backpack containing fireworks that had been opened and emptied of their gunpowder. “Kadyrbayev decided to remove the backpack from the room in order to help his friend Tsarnaev avoid trouble,” the charge sheet says, adding that he also removed a jar of Vaseline he thought might have been used “to make bombs”. – AFP
LEO (Jul 24th - Aug 23rd) This is not a good day to make hazy or lazy long-term financial decisions. Yet if you can really concentrate on focusing on goals, assembling the resources to achieving them and then putting lots of energy into making things happen, the sky really is the limit. If so, you can apply yourself unstintingly to what you want to go for and barriers can fall away.
VIRGO (Aug 24th Sep 23rd) You may find yourself up for a challenge in the next few days. Yet anything that requires you to step outside of the bounds of what you currently know well can actually be really good for you. Perhaps there is something you have long had a secret fascination with trying. Well, if so, now you can find the motivation to try to make it happen.

Sky Movies, 6.35pm Features Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo (below) have no trouble producing the chemistry in this smouldering, stylish remake of the 1968 Norman Jewison favourite that starred Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway. Brosnan is the playboy with a special interest in high-risk theft, while Russo is the sassy detective assigned to pin him for the robbery of a $100 million Monet. The stolen canvas works as a foreplay device between the two somewhat detached souls who, hitherto, have been looking for love in all the wrong places.
