Good leads on battery thefts case BY KATIE TODD

Accolades for agribusiness BY SUE NEWMAN


Tom Kearney might be a man who avoids the spotlight, but given his business CFA Ashburton has been identified as one of Canterbury’s high fliers, he might have to get used to the limelight. CFA is this year’s Canterbury winner of the agribusiness section of the Deloitte Fast 50 as one of the region’s fastest growing businesses. It will now go forward to compete against the country’s best with the 50 fastest growing to be unveiled at the Deloitte Festival of growth next month. The Deloitte Fast 50 index ranks the country’s top 50 businesses according to their revenue growth over the past three years. Kearney is not comfortable talking about awards. He’s happier simply getting on with the job, running his family owned and operated feed assessment and laboratory. The company provides independent in-field sampling, feed analysis and dry matter testing for a wide variety of animal feed from winter feed

in the ground to cut and carry baleage and silage. Kearney and wife Jaimee bought the business in 2015, becoming the third owners in its 20 year history. It was a business with solid foundations, one that was ready to take to the next level, Kearney said. “We’ve put a significant investment in over the last four years and six months from buying the business we’d moved it from its country base to town. The business was there to be done and the groundwork had been done.” The investment has continued and involved achieving IANZ accreditation and securing technical partnership with an American provider. “We’ve got some really good relationships with family farms and now with the large scale co-op farms too. This is based around mutual respect from both parties and from providing accurate results and people deal with us because we’re accurate and hassle free.”

Over a season the company analyses millions of dollars worth of feed, with the results ensuring their clients can make informed decisions on feeding strategies or the trading of feed products. The company now counts its clients across New Zealand and is venturing into the Australian market. It is constantly working to improve the turnaround time from sample to result. “We’re investing in technology so our clients can see their results in real time,” Kearney said. The company has a staff of five full timers but during the winter employs up to 30 extra staff. The company’s success is very much about partnerships, Kearney said – with his bank, BNZ and with his staff who are highly skilled and as driven to provide a quality service to their farmer clients as he is. Nomination for the award was driven by his bank and the recognition was something he would not have sought, Kearney said. “We’re just a little wee com-

pany from Ashburton and to be recognised alongside some of the big players is pretty good but we’re still a family business with really good staff.” With the BNZ a sponsor of the Deloitte Fast 50, BNZ business partner Susan Banks said she encouraged Kearney to enter because CFA’s growth and outstanding future prospects demonstrated exactly what the programme was about. “BNZ has supported Tom as CFA has expanded. He is innovative in his thinking and I believe that the programme provides him with an opportunity to meet like-minded people from businesses in similar formative and growth phases and that exposure will help him and CFA for the future,” she said. The win was a great celebration of CFA’s success and put the spotlight on the company as an example of how Ashburton businesses could stand out among their industry peers, Banks said. “I congratulate Tom and his team.”

Ashburton police are following “good leads” as they continue to investigate truck battery thefts around town, but are calling on the public’s help to track down exactly who is responsible. Throughout the past month, several truckies from around Ashburton have found themselves unable to fire up their vehicles due to looted batteries, forcing others to take extra measures to protect their vehicles at night. Police have been investigating the matter and looking into leads, but now need the public to tell them anything they know, Senior Sergeant Phil Dean said. “Someone, somewhere knows who is responsible for this,” he said. Batteries can cost up to $350 new, can weigh around 13 kilograms and can be sold for scrap metal. The thieving spree was not limited to one type of truck, nor one area of Ashburton. Some batteries were stolen from trucks in industrial areas, others from vehicles parked on main streets in town. The first battery thefts were recorded on September 17 and coincided with an increase in thefts from cars. Dean urged people to share any information they may have on the thefts by ringing Ashburton Police Station on 03 307-8400, or ringing Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555-111.

A journey down memory swamp Somebody once told me that saying somebody makes a great ogre is probably more of an insult than a compliment. But Oliver Livingstone certainly commanded that protruding belly, pronged ears and Scottish lilt like a pro when he lumbered on stage as Shrek on Thursday. The Mid Canterbury Children’s Theatre have pulled together the stage version of a tale that holds a special place in probably every ’90s kid’s heart and I settled in to their final dress rehearsal on Thursday, awaiting a journey down memory swamp. It’s probably difficult to go too far amiss with the eclectic escapades of goofy, green Shrek. But the first thing that struck me was the sheer, collective effort that had gone into this production, directed by Cherie Livingstone, musically directed by Jo Castelow, choreographed by Jessie Thompson, and showcasing some of the top-notch youth talent that this town holds. The big highlight would have to be the incredible set and costuming. From the rise of the curtain, to the fall, there were consistently spectacular backdrops. The Ashburton Trust Event Centre stage transformed into lofty towers to huge, swaying sunflowers and a life-size storybook – the result, I imagine, of hours of work by dozens of dedicated parents and helpers. Every one of the 60-plus cast members was decked out in spectacular get-up, from the spiky wee hedgehog to the hulking Gingerbread Man. And the makeup and face paint department haven’t held back either – were those false eyelashes, Donkey? The story followed much the same plot as the movie, with some of the same classic songs and other new content. I will have to deduct serious points – not from the Children’s Theatre, but from the authors at Musical Theatre International – for omitting the absolute banger that is Smash Mouth’s All Star, as zealously referenced in my intro. However, audiences can still relish in the dulcet tones of I’m a Believer

Like any dress rehearsal, there remained a few small aspects to buff up on and, unfortunately, it was the singing that fell a little bit flat in some solo and duet mo-

puppets. And the casting of the leads was also a big plus. Joe Danielson delivered an impressive larger-than-life presence as the Donkey, and Jack Brown did just the opposite as the vertically challenged Farquaad. Brooke Millar gave a polished, scarily-convincing performance

In brief

Roadley close to finish line Mid Canterbury extreme runner Greg Roadley (right) only has to nurse his blisters for 13km today as he and other competitors endure the final leg of the Atacama Crossing desert race in Chile. Roadley, 44, finished the 79km long fifth stage yesterday ahead of most of the 100-strong field and currently sits in fifth place. The 250km crossing has taken him across salt flats, huge sand dunes, canyons and river crossings. Competitors are self-sufficient, with just water provided and a tent at the end of each of the six stages. Temperatures reach up to 40°C during the day and are cold enough at night to freeze water. Roadley will complete the final 13km to the finish line in San Pedro, where wife Rachel and daughter Mia will be waiting. The Mid Canterbury dairy farmer is one of three Kiwis in the race and was hoping a carefully-planned diet of dehydrated food, which he has had to carry in a small backpack along with his sleeping bag, would sustain him until the finish line. He was expecting the adventure to be another brutal assault

A driver’s cautionary tale The cyclist I couldn’t see collided with me at a rapid rate of knots. He actually entered in through the passenger window before coming to rest on the pavement. That five seconds between collision and getting out of the car to check on him were some of the toughest in my life not knowing what I was going to find. The guy sustained four broken ribs, a concussion and a very bad laceration on his back – 30 stitches. I’m bloody thankful there were a couple of nurses two cars back from the truck. I wanted to share this as a very real reminder of the often unseen on our roads – the cyclist. While I felt I had been waved through, the onus was, of course, on me to clear the third lane before I advanced and I failed in this obligation. Equally, I know we have all gone with indications etc from other drivers in the past (you won’t be surprised to learn I no longer do this) but this puts your fate essentially in someone else’s hands. There is no liability for someone who waves you through regardless of the outcome – this all rests with you. Anyway – please learn from my mistakes and take a bit of extra care out there.” Heath Walters

At the urging of a district court judge, former Ashburton man Heath Walters is sharing a message about road safety. Walters hit a cyclist on a busy Christchurch road and was charged with careless or inconsiderate driving causing injury. The cyclist broke four ribs, was concussed and needed 30 stitches to a laceration to his back. Walters says it was his fault, but all drivers could learn from what happened that day. He shared his experience with workmates, but was encouraged to take it to a wider audience. This is his message: “For those of you who are unaware, at the end of June I was involved in a pretty bad accident turning into Penn Place. Essentially, traffic was backed up from Annex at 4.50pm and I was turning back into Penn Place. A double unit truck/trailer (curtain sider) in the far lane as you turn in and a Hilux in the near lane both stopped to let me in and in proceeding through the turn, I failed to give way to the third lane on the road – the cycle lane. I assumed that since the traffic I could see was stopped (and the truckie waved me through) I was clear to go.

Local compactor off to Chathams BY KATIE TODD


It’s all thanks to an Ashburton engineering company that the Chatham Islands Council will be able to manage their rubbish easier, and more sustainably, from next month. Engineering Repairs have just sent a specially-made recycling and waste compactor to the island 800km away, that the council will use to reduce their waste and prolong landfill life. There are about 10 of the machines around New Zealand, all produced in Ashburton, Engineering Repairs co-owner Matt Hunt said. The first one was custom-made for Raglan around 20 years ago, and more have since been sent to locations like Opotiki and Kaikoura. “We even sent one to Rarotonga in 2012,” Hunt said. “They used to use little compactors, but needed something bigger because the island was growing.” The Chatham Islands council first contacted Engineering Repairs about four years ago, expressing their interest in having a recycling and waste compactor made for them. “It started as a one-off thing

Trio arrested in synthetic drugs bust Two young men and a woman have been arrested in Christchurch after police discovered a number of drug-induced people in a house this week. Officers in the area carried out search warrants at two properties in the suburb of Phillipstown on Thursday. Police arrested and charged a 23-year-old man with supplying psychoactive substances. A 21-year-old woman was charged with possession of psychoactive substances for supply. They appeared in the Christchurch District Court yesterday. While a 25-year-old man was charged with obstruction and possession of psychoactive substances. He is due to appear in the same court next Wednesday. Detective Senior Sergeant Sarah Illingworth said it was incredibly concerning when officers found a number of people, in one property, who they believed were

under the influence of synthetic drugs. “They were unconscious or close to it. It was a real demonstration of just how dangerous this drug is,’’ she said. “We want the public to know we are working hard to make more arrests like today’s to stop the spread of this harmful substance. These drugs are extremely harmful.’’ Police are urging anyone who knows someone who is taking synthetic drugs to contact police immediately and to seek medical attention urgently. An appeal is also being made to users of the drug themselves to give it up and contact their family doctor or Alcohol Drug Helpline on 0800 787 797 for assistance. “Police also need the assistance of the community to report anyone suspected of making or supplying synthetic drugs.’’ - NZME


Massey launches review into Brash speech cancellation The chancellor of Massey University has announced a review into the process surrounding the recent cancellation of Don Brash’s appearance at a student politics club. Massey University Chancellor Michael Ahie said the Council of Massey University was undertaking an independent review into the process surrounding the cancellation of the former National Leader’s appearance on the Manawatu campus. “The council has already expressed its support and confidence in the vice-chancellor and it is now seeking a review of the processes involved in the issue so that it can fully understand the lessons learned and have clarity over future events,” Ahie said. The review will be undertaken by Douglas Martin, a former Deputy State Services Commissioner. Martin was scheduled to report his findings and make recommendations to the University Council by the end of November. Martin’s terms of reference for the review will focus on the performance of the University in arriving at and managing the con-

As details of the August cancellation became public, Brash told the Herald he was “stunned” by the last-minute decision and he called for Massey University vice-chancellor Jan Thomas to resign over her “totally mislead-

ing” explanation. Thomas cited security concerns in halting the speech but documents released under the Official Information Act (OIA) paint a different story.

Mumford & Sons coming

British folk band Mumford & Sons are heading to New Zealand for the first time since 2015. The four-piece band will play a one-day festival style show at The Outer Fields at Western Springs on Saturday January 12, 2019. They’ll be joined by US RnB singer Leon Bridges, UK soul singer-songwriter Michael Kiwanuka, UK singer Sam Fender and Australian singer Angie McMahon. The event will also feature artisan food, wine and beer from around New Zealand. Mumford & Sons are set to release their fourth album Delta on November 16. The record is produced by Paul Epworth.


Attacks blamed on Russia The West unleashed an onslaught of new evidence and indictments yesterday accusing Russian military spies of hacking so widespread that it seemed to target anyone, anywhere who investigates Moscow’s involvement in an array of criminal activities – including doping, poisoning and the downing of a plane. Russia defiantly denied the charges, neither humbled nor embarrassed by the exceptional revelations on one of the most high-tension days in East-West relations in years. Moscow lashed back with allegations that the Pentagon runs a clandestine US biological weapons programme involving toxic mosquitoes,

ticks and more. The nucleus of yesterday’s drama was Russia’s military intelligence agency known as the GRU, increasingly the embodiment of Russian meddling abroad. In the last 24 hours: US authorities charged seven officers from the GRU with hacking international agencies; British and Australian authorities accused the GRU of a devastating 2017 cyberattack on Ukraine, the email leaks that rocked the US 2016 election and other damaging hacks; and Dutch officials alleged that GRU agents tried and failed to hack into the world’s chemical weapons watchdog, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The ham-handed attempted break-in – involving hacking equipment in the trunk of a car and a trail of physical and virtual clues – was the most stunning operation revealed yesterday. It was so obvious, in fact, that it almost looked like the Russians didn’t care about getting caught. “Basically, the Russians got caught with their equipment, people who were doing it, and they have got to pay the piper. They are going to have to be held to account,” US Defense Secretary James Mattis said in Brussels, where he was meeting with NATO allies. Mattis said the West has a wide variety of responses available.

Britain’s ambassador to the Netherlands, Peter Wilson, said the GRU would no longer be allowed to act with impunity. Calling Russia a “pariah state,” British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said: “Where Russia acts in an indiscriminate and reckless way, where they have done in terms of these cyberattacks, we will be exposing them.” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov of Russia said that the US is taking a “dangerous path” by “deliberately inciting tensions in relations between the nuclear powers,” adding that Washington’s European allies should also think about it. - AP

Schumer arrested Actress-comedian Amy Schumer and model Emiy Ratajkowski are among those who were detained at a protest against US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in Washington DC. SNBC shared an image of Schumer being detained on Twitter. Ratajkowski shared an image of herself at the protest on Instagram, saying she had been arrested protesting Kavanaugh’s nomination. “Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault,” she says. “Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power.”


Kavanaugh: ‘I might have been too emotional’ Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh acknowledged yesterday he “might have been too emotional” when testifying about sexual misconduct allegations as he made a final bid to win over wavering GOP senators on the eve of a crucial vote to advance his confirmation. Three GOP senators and one Democrat remain undecided about elevating Kavanaugh to the high court. Two of the Republicans signalled yesterday that they were satisfied with the findings of a confidential new FBI report into the assault allegations, boosting the hopes of GOP leaders. President Donald Trump rallied behind Kavanaugh during a campaign event in

Brett Kavanaugh Minnesota, telling supporters that the “rage-fuelled resistance” to his nominee “is starting to backfire at a level nobody has ever seen before”. Still, Kavanaugh’s op-ed underscored that his performance at a Senate hearing last

week opened new questions about his impartiality and judicial temperament. Democrats say Kavanaugh’s assertion that left-wing groups seeking “revenge on behalf of the Clintons” were behind the misconduct allegations suggests he would rule from the bench with a partisan bent. In an op-ed yesterday in The Wall Street Journal, Kavanaugh said there were “a few things I should not have said” during the hearing. “Going forward, you can count on me to be the same kind of judge and person I have been for my entire 28-year legal career: hardworking, even-keeled, openminded, independent and dedicated to the Constitu-

tion and the public good,” he wrote. Senate leaders set a pivotal preliminary vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination. If that succeeds, a final roll call was expected later today as the long, emotional battle over the conservative jurist drew toward its climax. Six days after Trump reluctantly ordered the FBI to scrutinise the accusations – which allegedly occurred in the 1980s and Kavanaugh has denied – leading GOP lawmakers briefed on the agency’s confidential document all reached the same conclusion: There was no verification of the women’s past claims and nothing new. - AP

‘No sign of life in hotel rubble’ French rescuers said yesterday they were unable to find the possible sign of life they detected a day earlier under the rubble of a hotel that collapsed in the earthquake a week ago on Indonesia’s Sulawesi island. The five-member team from French organisation Pompiers de l’urgence said late yesterday its life-searching sensor “detected the presence of a victim” under thick concrete in the wreckage of the Mercure Hotel in Palu. The device can pick up breathing and heartbeats, but the team also cautioned gas leaks and other factors can result in false positives. The team stopped digging overnight. But after an hour of searching yesterday, team member Philip Besson said they couldn’t find the signal again. “We strongly believed in it yesterday. Now we have nothing at all ... we tried everything and have no response,” he said. Local rescuers were continuing to dig at the site. The death toll from the 7.5 magnitude earthquake that spawned the tsunami has risen to 1558. Many families, though, never registered their losses with police. It’s also unknown how many might have drowned, been swept out to sea or were swallowed up

600 of the bodies buried in mass graves in Palu alone were unclaimed. Until Wednesday, authorities had been photographing them in hopes that relatives could identify them later. “But we had to stop because

the corpses we’re recovering now have decayed too much,” Cancer said. “They’ve become a health hazard, and the instructions are to bury them immediately.” The disaster has overwhelmed local authorities. - AP


Scout movement apologises to child abuse victims

Hokkaido shaken by earthquake

“The apology is a genuine and heartfelt admission that, for some young people, their time in scouting was a negative experience. For this, we are truly sorry,” he added. Allegations of years of abuse within scouts were heard during the government-commissioned Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, which made its final report in December. Australia’s longest-running royal commission – which is the country’s highest form of inquiry – had been investigating since 2012 how institutions responded to sexual abuse of children in Australia over 90 years. The inquiry heard the

testimonies of more than 8000 survivors of child sex abuse. Scouts Australia joined a national redress programme that was recommended by the royal commission and began on July 1. The plan covers people who were sexually abused as children by institutional figures over decades. Payments are capped at 150,000 Australian dollars, with previously received compensation being deducted from any new amount. Scouts, Young Men’s Christian Association, better known as YMCA, Catholic Church, Anglican Church and Salvation Army were among the first organisations to sign up to the government’s redress programme. - AP

No injuries or damage has been reported from the latest earthquake on Hokkaido island near the town of Atsuma. The Japan Meteorological Agency measured the quake at magnitude 5.2, revising from an earlier measurement of 5.3. But it scared many people including residents in Atsuma, where the magnitude 6.7 earthquake a month ago caused landslides and killed more than 40 people. That quake also damaged a major power plant in the town, blacking out all of the island’s nearly 3 million households and forcing essential services such as hospitals and traffic lights to use generators or other backups. The new quake was an aftershock to the September 6 temblor, the agency said, cautioning residents that more shaking could occur at any time. Footage on NHK national television showed employees at the Atsuma town hall standing up and watching a television monitor, as an earthquake alarm sounded. Hokkaido Electric Power Co. said all of its power plants were intact after the quake. - AP

An eight-year-old found a preViking-era sword while swimming in a lake in Sweden. Saga Vanecek found the relic in the Vidöstern lake while at her family’s holiday home in Jönköping County. The sword was initially reported to be 1000 years old, but experts at the local museum now believe it may date to around 1500 years ago. “It’s not every day that you step on a sword in the lake!” Mikael Nordström from the museum said. - BBC

It’s work, as usual A construction worker who pocketed a cool $NZ150˜million after hitting the jackpot turned up to work the next day – and has no plans to quit his job any time soon. Nandlall Mangal, a New Yorker originally from Guyana, won a total of $US245.6 million ($NZ378 million) in the New York Lottery’s Powerball Game on August 11 after buying a $US10 ($NZ15) ticket during a grocery shop. After taxes were deducted, the 42-year-old took home just under $US100 million ($NZ150 million). But while most of us would have been busy popping the champagne and booking luxury holidays, Mangal decided to turn up to work as normal. - NZME

Drunk birds cause havoc Police in Gilbert, Minnesota, are warning residents about a group of youthful residents unable to handle their alcohol. They’ve been drifting around town looking disoriented, narrowly avoiding getting hit by cars. But these aren’t teenagers getting drunk. Instead, it’s the local bird population. “The Gilbert Police Department has received several reports of birds that appear to be ‘under the influence’ flying into windows, cars and acting confused,” Police Chief Ty Techar said. An early frost meant that berries had fermented earlier than usual, he explained, and birds were eating them and getting drunk. - NZME

Judge McEwen previously expressed concerns if he was freed and failed to comply with release conditions. - AAP

Ashburton stroke survivors are praising the FAST stroke awareness campaign. They know more than anyone that recognising when someone is having a stroke is crucial to getting that person the urgent help they need, thus improving their chances of recovery. Susan Sandys reports.


shburton man Graham Butler found his arm was not working properly when he woke up one day in August last year. “I couldn’t roll a cigarette, and that frustrated me, and it just got worse,” Butler said. He headed off to his GP, who thought he had had a stroke. But at the hospital, staff decided it was just a damaged nerve that would get better. Six days later, however, he found himself back at his doctor’s, this time suffering more symptoms including a droopy face and slurring. The delayed prognosis affects Butler to this day with limited movement on his left side, whereas he would have made a faster and more thorough recovery if he had received immediate help. Butler is a member of the Ashburton Stroke and Brain Injury Support Group, where his tale of slow recovery is a story all too common. Fellow member Petra was living in Christchurch nine years ago when she suffered a stroke in her lounge-room. Her son came into the room, but neither of them knew what was happening. Her symptoms worsened over the next 20 minutes and luckily a courier happened to pop in and he was able to call an ambulance. Earlier that morning she had been to her doctor suffering a severe headache, but the warning signs were not spotted, and she did not even have her blood pressure taken. She has been left with a longterm disability, including not being able to move her left hand, preventing her from doing the craft activities she used to enjoy of knitting and crotchet. An Ashburton grandmother who is a member of the group suffered her stroke at 9pm one night about a year ago, but chose not to push the emergency button at her retirement village home. “I thought I would be alright, because I have been all my life,” she said. “The possibility I was having a stroke went through my head, but I didn’t want to bother people.” She collapsed in the bathroom early the next morning but was able to drag herself to the phone to call someone for help. Like Butler and Petra, she wish-

es she had called for help straight away, however, she is making a good recovery and hopes to return to being able to drive. A stroke can affect people of all ages and among support group members is 47-year-old Carmen Marriott. She had a stroke at the age of 27, brought on by pregnancy. Ten years later she had another

one and ended up in emergency surgery and on life support. She made a remarkable recovery and today the mum of two relies on keeping fit and active to help with her ongoing issues relating to co-ordination and limited strength on her left side. President of the support group, George Samuel, said the FAST message was very relevant, just as

the stories of the many people in the support group showed. The group has about 12 members and meets every fortnight. It is not only for stroke and brain injury survivors of all ages, but also for their carers and relatives. In attendance at many of the meetings is Sue Kelly of Brain Injury New Zealand in Christchurch.

What you need to know Recognise stroke symptoms


Face – is it drooping on one side?


Arm – is one arm weak?


Speech – is it mixed up, slurred or lost?


Take action – call 111 immediately.


Anyone wanting to join the group can phone Samuel on 308-7001. Minister of Health David Clark recently praised the FAST stroke awareness campaign, as it helped get stroke sufferers the rapid treatment needed. It also enhanced health equity by increasing symptom awareness amongst Maori and Pacific peoples.

“Since the launch in July, I’ve noticed the FAST messaging throughout New Zealand, in both English and Te Reo Maori. “It reinforced that people should call 111 if they experience or see someone else showing any signs of stroke.” “Taking action and calling 111 straight away gives people the best chance of recovery.”

round 9000 people have a stroke in New Zealand each year. On average, another New Zealander has a stroke every hour. Research shows stroke is a leading cause of death in New Zealand, behind heart disease and all cancers combined. But many, many New Zealanders who have a stroke recover and lead successful, happy lives.

A stroke is a brain attack


stroke is a sudden interruption of blood flow to part of the brain causing it to stop working and eventually damaging brain cells. During a stroke, the cells in the affected part of the brain start to die and that part of the brain cannot work properly. This can affect a person’s ability to walk, talk, eat,

see, read, socialise or do things they were able to do before the stroke. Many people with stroke may also have fatigue or problems with remembering, understanding or thinking properly.

The impact of stroke


ifferent parts of the brain control a person’s movements, senses, emotions and intellectual functions. The effects of stroke depend on which part of the brain is damaged and how severe the damage is. Disabilities from stroke range from slight to severe. Some people make a speedy recovery and return to their normal lives. Others have disabilities that may improve with time and can be managed. For many, disabilities may last a lifetime. A small number of people will need fulltime medical care.

Who does stroke affect?


nyone can have a stroke. Although strokes often happen to older people, a quarter of all strokes in New Zealand occur in people of working age or younger – even children and babies have strokes. Stroke is largely preventable, yet each year about 9000 people in this country have a stroke. This number would be more than halved if all the recommended actions to reduce stroke risks were taken in the community.

Your actions are your responsibility A

warning issued to fellow drivers in today’s edition of the Guardian by a former Ashburton local is something we can all relate to as we go about our day-to-day lives in our vehicles – but it’s a stark reality, we must all be aware of. Heath Walters writes on Page 5 today about the dangers of allowing another driver to wave you into an unoccupied space in traffic and talks about his experience in doing so which led to him appearing the Ashburton District Court this week. Firstly, congratulations to Heath for going public with his letter – yes, it was court-ordered, but only after the letter had actu-

ally been written and it takes some serious emotion to take something out into the open world which could ultimately see you subjected to some form of questioning. Heath’s major mistake, as can be seen through his letter, was trusting the judgement of someone else when in fact he should have ensured himself that the

path through was clear. For all the good intentions of the person who did allow him through, it ultimately could have had devastating circumstances, luckily though in this instance – that wasn’t the case. As drivers on our roads I’m sure there has been a point in time during our driving careers where we have all been guilty of following the same path as Heath. For all our stories about road accidents and fatal accidents, Kiwis are, by largely, very considerate when it comes to fellow road users. Everyone has been witness to, being given the opportunity, to enter into traffic before they

should have or have had lights flashed at them to indicate it’s safe to move into a line at some point in time. We’ve all followed a slow-moving vehicle which has indicated to the left, or moved over to the left, to allow us to pass – but the decision to do so ultimately rests on our own shoulders and not those who are trying to do a kind act. Sadly, these generous moments sometimes have serious outcomes that could have easily been avoided. The hope with the letter published in today’s Guardian from Heath is that by reading his words and learning of his experience of not checking himself is that a few

more drivers might think twice about their actions before they follow the direction of someone else without paying their own due diligence. Often, it’s a split-second decision – one made on a whim and with very little thought, but it is one we need to be aware of and one we should be vigilant about making in the future. And if those same words on page five mean that even just one less accident occurs because of the same circumstances, then that’s a win for the future safety of our roads. Because ultimately, that is the end goal – safer New Zealand roads for all who use them.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Saturday, October 6, the 279th day of 2018. There are 86 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On Oct. 6, 1979, Pope John Paul II, on a week-long US tour, became the first pontiff to visit the White House, where he was received by President Jimmy Carter. On this date: In 1683, thirteen families from Krefeld, Germany, arrived in Philadelphia to begin Germantown, one of America’s oldest settlements. In 1892, British poet laureate Alfred, Lord Tennyson died in Surrey, England, at age 83. In 1927, the era of talking pictures arrived with the opening of The Jazz Singer starring Al Jolson, a feature containing both silent and sound-synchronized sequences. In 1928, Chiang Kai-shek became president of China. In 1939, in a speech to the Reichstag, German Chancellor Adolf Hitler spoke of his plans to reorder the ethnic layout of Europe — a plan which would entail settling the “Jewish problem”. In 1958, the nuclear submarine USS Seawolf surfaced after spending 60 days submerged. In 1973, war erupted in the Middle East as Egypt and Syria launched a surprise attack on Israel during the Yom Kippur holiday. (Israel, initially caught off guard, managed to push back the Arab forces before a ceasefire finally took hold in the nearly three-week conflict.) In 1976, President Gerald R. Ford, in his second presidential debate with Democrat Jimmy Carter, asserted that there was “no Soviet domination of eastern Europe”. (Ford later conceded such was not the case.) In 1981, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat was shot to death by extremists while reviewing a military parade. In 1989, actress Bette Davis died in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, at age 81. Ten years ago: As Wall Street


What a great community T

his week I wanted to throw the spotlight and some love on some of the outstanding businesses in our local community. It’s one thing to operate profitably and efficiently in an increasingly difficult and complex marketplace, but it’s another to balance the myriad requests for “help” that most people in business encounter. Ask any manager or owner, every week there are usually people walking through the door looking for something for nothing. All for a good cause of course. I’ll admit to being involved in a number of community projects both here and elsewhere around New Zealand where I’ve had to man up, and approach businesses for help. Mindful they are being hit-on all the time. Right now, I’m right in the thick of another one. Knocking together funding applications to trusts and knocking on doors or picking up the phone. The Ashburton Fire Museum is the current focus and has been since 2015 when our small team was tasked by the Ashburton Volunteer Fire Brigade to redevelop and expand their heritage collection at The Plains Village into the best brigade-owned display in the country. A tall order, and three years later we are now well on track. We got off to a great start when we were directed to Stu Tarbotton. He came over to our ground-breaking ceremony at Tinwald and promptly turned up with his machinery and countless truckloads of hard-fill to scrape, prepare and compact our site for construction of the floor. He didn’t just cut us a sharp

deal, – he donated the entire effort. Nice one Stu. Our project encompasses two exhibition halls, and we need the entire roof area painted out completely. A huge job, and at height as well. I picked up the phone to Darcy Prendergast at Spraymarks some months back and told him what we were up to, what we needed and might he be keen to help? There was no “let me think about it”.

that we try and get some local sparkies to give us a couple of Saturdays to handle the electrical installation. I asked my mate John Glendinning who runs Specialised Electrical Services whether he might be interested in building up our new mains switchboard as a contribution. Once he visited the site and saw what we were up to, he stepped up and is looking after the entire electrical fit-out. A huge job. With us doing the monkey work to ease his load. “Just put my name a bit bigger on the board”. Sure thing. John was in the local volunteer brigade down at Outram near Dunedin some years ago, so having the firefighter gene may have helped us a bit there. An incredible contribution. And he keeps

We live in an incredible community. Good people are helping us achieve great things in all sorts of community projects

He heard our story, liked what we were setting out to achieve and said “Yes”. Right there and then. Together with help from Craig Bishop at The Finishing Company, they are doing the job this week. And providing all the paint. Wow! A couple of local electrical wholesalers readily donated cable and hardware. Neil at Ideal Electrical and Pete at Redpaths saved us a lot of cash we would have had to scrape from somewhere. There was a suggestion

coming up with ways to make what we are doing even better. Once our new Hall Two was up, the original cladding on Hall One looked decidedly aged and unbecoming. Enter Canterbury Long Run Iron who donated matching coloursteel for one side, and our building project manager Jim Reed (another former firefighter), stepped up and forked out for new cladding on the opposite side as well. It just goes on and on. Jeff Har-

vey signwriter became enthused with the whole deal and has donated his time and expertise to be our interior fit-out design consultant. And he’s providing some of our display and sign elements as well. Kennards Hire gave us free rein of a large SkyJack lift for literally months. You have no idea how handy that great piece of kit has been. There are countless others who have stepped up or stepped in to help make our ambitious plans work and remain within our very prudent budget. As well as the usual funding through trusts and local service clubs including all manner of organisations, the response so far has been incredibly heartwarming. Much of the exhibition storytelling will be handled on a huge screen. The Ashburton Club and MSA helped us out there with a grant for our large format projector. The overwhelming thing out of all this, is the realisation that we live in an incredible community. Good people are helping us achieve great things in all sorts of community projects. They say what goes around comes around. Almost 150 years of voluntary service by Ashburton Volunteer Fire Brigade members to Ashburton may certainly have helped. Thanks team. You are awesome.

Running the race


e are heading off to take part in a race – actually a relay. It involves a good track, interesting scenery, enjoyable social interaction and a great afternoon tea afterwards. There are many aspects to such a race and it got me to thinking how the Bible uses the imagery of a race to describe life. Sometimes it speaks of the stadia where the crowd watch the competition. Other times it speaks of the effort of competing or the discipline of training and yet again in other places the endurance that is needed for a long race. I’ll only be walking a bit over 6km in my leg of the relay, other team members will be doing longer legs.

Some of the Bible passages contain observations. “In a race, all run but only one gets the prize” 1 Cor 9:24 which is followed up with “Run to obtain the prize”. The letter to the Hebrews says “Let us lay aside every weight and sin which clings so closely and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us”. Makes sense, doesn’t it? If you have a marathon to run you need to get rid of everything that will make it harder, and then you

need to keep going until the end. The Apostle Paul was able to write to Timothy: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith”. Through all the difficulties and persecutions he faced, he had endured until the end. This makes the Christian life sound a bit daunting. It might even appear to say that “if it’s going to be, it’s up to me” – the very opposite of the Gospel, and a discouragement to those who struggle. When it comes to winning the prize, the most important question is this: “Are you qualified?” Our natural condition of rebellion against God leaves us automatically disqualified and therefore ineligible for the prize

of eternal life. The Gospel is the good news that God sent His Son to enable our qualification. Through faith in Him we are declared eligible for the prize. More than that, everyone who crosses the finish line gets a prize and even better, He promises to give you the help you need to get to the finish. In the end, it is not our efforts, but the hard work that Christ has done for us that makes the difference. Come to him in faith and the victory is yours. Yes, He still requires you to run and to endure – but provides all you need to do this. The Rev. David Bayne is with the Grace Presbyterian Church

Slow-cooked pulled lamb Serves 6 1-1.5kg Quality Mark lamb shoulder, bone-in 25g butter 4 large onions, quartered 1 whole bulb garlic, cloves peeled 1C white wine 1C chicken or beef stock 4 stalks fresh rosemary 3 bay leaves Zest of 1 lemon 1T dijon or wholegrain mustard 2 anchovies, finely chopped 1T cumin seeds 3t cornflour mixed with 1/4 C water Fresh chopped herbs, to garnish ■ Preheat the oven to 130°C conventional bake. ■ Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the lamb, skin side down, and cook until browned. Turn over and brown the other side, then set aside on a plate. Drain excess fat from the pan. ■ Reduce the heat to medium-high, add the butter to the same pan and cook the onions for a few minutes until golden. Add the garlic cloves and cook for another few minutes. Add the wine, turn up the heat and let it bubble rapidly for a minute (scrape up any caramelised meat juices stuck to the bottom). Add the stock, rosemary stalks, bay leaves and lemon zest. Stir and carefully pour everything into your largest roasting dish. ■ Add the lamb to the dish, skin-side

up. Spread the mustard and anchovies over top and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with the cumin seeds and season. Cover the dish tightly with tinfoil and bake in the oven for 5 hours or until falling off the bone. Baste the lamb a couple of times while cooking. Remove the aluminium foil, turn up the oven to 200°C and cook for another 10-15 minutes until the lamb is browned and crunchy on top. Transfer the lamb to a warmed plate or platter (you can use a dinner plate to transfer it instead of tongs, as it will be falling apart and very tender) and cover with the foil. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes before serving. To remove the layer of oil on top of the pan juices, gently lay 6-7 paper towels flat on the surface without pressing down. Wait a few minutes for them to soak through, then discard. Pour the remaining pan juices through a sieve into a clean saucepan. Add the cornflour mixture and boil until reduced to a nice pouring sauce while the lamb rests. Taste and season as required. Pull the lamb into nice big chunks. Serve on mashed potatoes or kumara with seasonal vegetables, pour gravy over and scatter with fresh herbs if you like. Recipe courtesy of Beef + Lamb New Zealand

Air NZ, Singapore Airlines extend alliance The government has extended a partnership between Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines for another five years, saying it creates stronger bonds with South East Asia. Transport Minister Phil Twyford said the strategic alliance has been reauthorised until March 2024, when the airlines will have to show the partnership hasn’t weighed on competition. The airlines sought to have it extended to March 2026, saying the alliance had proved its value so far and to provide them with enough certainty to add capacity. “The services the airlines provide through the alliance strengthens New Zealand’s ties with our close neighbours in South East Asia and with other emerging markets throughout Asia,” Twyford said. “Reauthorisation of the alliance will result in more benefits to travellers. These benefits include

a wider range of flight times, more seats and reciprocal frequent flyer schemes.” The deal means Air NZ and Singapore Airlines can co-operate on routes between New Zealand and Singapore and share the revenue. Since it first started in January 2015, the airlines have increased the number of flights between the two nations and added seat capacity by more than 25 per cent. A new service between Auckland and Singapore is scheduled to start later this month, adding a third daily flight and adding an

annual 165,000 seats. At peak service, the airlines operate 35 return flights a week. Auckland International Airport, Tourism New Zealand and Tourism Industry Aotearoa supported the application for the reauthorisation, including the longer term. Christchurch International Airport was more sceptical, saying a shorter term could deliver some of the public benefits claimed by the airlines, and suggesting the alliance only be authorised for four years. - NZME

Rudings said the kiwi could dip as low as 63.50 US cents in the near term, in particular if the payrolls number is stronger than expected. The kiwi dropped to 49.68 British pence from 50.20 pence on Thursday and declined to 56.17 euro cents from 56.58 cents. New Zealand’s dollar traded at 91.51 Australian cents from 91.59 cents on Thursday and fell to 4.4395 Chinese yuan from 4.4601 yuan. It dropped to 73.62 yen from 74.18 yen. New Zealand’s two-year swap rate was unchanged at 2 per cent, while the 10-year swap rose 1 basis point to 2.89 per cent. - NZME


It is now hovering around 3.19 per cent after strong data upped the chances of more US rate increases. Earlier in the week, the greenback also got a solid lift when Fed chair Jerome Powell said interest rates “may go past neutral, but we’re a long way from neutral at this point, probably,” according to CNBC. “After the Fed endorsed the robust US economy, the market seems to have given up trying to fight against it. I think it’s been a bit of a reality check week that the US economic strength isn’t going to go away,” said Martin Rudings, senior dealer foreign exchange at OMF.


The New Zealand dollar is headed for a 2.3 per cent weekly fall against the US dollar after strong data there and hawkish comments from the chair of the Federal Reserve increased speculation that US rates will keep rising. The kiwi traded at 64.65 US cents at 5pm yesterday versus 64.78 cents at 8am in Wellington and 64.97 cents on Thursday. It was at 66.16 last Friday in New York and is hovering around lows not seen since February 2016. The trade-weighted index dropped to 70.81 from 71.11. The benchmark 10-year US Treasury briefly pushed above 3.23 per cent overnight Thursday, its highest level since 2011.

leading secondary processor and distributor of processed steel in NZ. The acquisition of STU is consistent with FBU’s fiveyear strategy, providing an opportunity to create the leading steel distribution business in the NZ market,” Citi’s report said. Forsyth Barr is the most supportive: “While we believe Fletcher’s proposal to acquire Steel & Tube is strategically rational, our enthusiasm is constrained by the transaction’s numerous hurdles ahead, modest materiality and the company’s chequered

takeover as opportunistic and it raised historic concerns. “While we recognise Fletcher’s history on acquisitions is very poor, in our view, Steel & Tube is probably the most logical and lowest risk opportunity for it to consider – it is New Zealand based, Fletcher knows the company and industry well, and the synergy opportunities are likely considerable. We believe Fletcher is likely the highest value owner of Steel & Tube,” the Forbar analysts said. “We expect the potential synergies are likely considerable across opex savings, procurement scale, lower inventory levels, and potential revenue and margin benefits. Offsetting will be some revenue losses – at very least there will be customers who are currently supplied by FBU and STU who want to maintain dual supply, plus competitors will see the combination as an opportunity to take share.” Mark Malpass, Steel & Tube chief executive, acknowledged the company’s market capitalisation had risen from about $210m to $263m since Fletcher’s bid. But he reiterated the board’s opinion that the $1.70/share offer significantly undervalued the business which had been trading around $1.83 till May when a writedown was announced. “Fletchers are trying to take advantage of a weak spot,” Malpass said. - NZME


Analysts are divided about Fletcher Building’s proposed $282 million takeover of Steel & Tube: one cautiously supports the deal but is worried about potential hurdles like the Commerce Commission, another robustly opposes it for three reasons and a third says it will be strategically positive. “Is it a deal, is it a steal?” ask Matt Henry and Matt Dunn of Forsyth Barr, roundly supporting the hostile bid, opposed by the target company’s board. Forbar supports the takeover as “probably the most logical and lowest risk opportunity for it to consider”. But UBS is against it, saying it is “un-intuitive” for three reasons: 1. Fletcher should focus on its sprawling operations before it looks to increase its footprint; 2. The $282m price would consume about a third of the UBS’s estimate of available funds and reduce the flexibility to gain scale in Australia; 3. The takeover share price high, at 44 per cent premium to Steel’s average market capitalisation in the past three years, suggesting a high price earnings multiple, “a 16 per cent premium to FBU’s multiple. In our view, investors would be excused for asking why buying back shares is not a better use of funds”. Citi analysts said the deal would be “strategically positive” for Fletcher. “STU is a

Home ground final BY ERIN TASKER


When the Country Cowboys roll in to Ashburton today for a rugby league showdown with the Ashburton Barbarians, the Temuka team will be met by a home side full of determination and desire. The two sides are set to meet in the 2018 Aoraki Cup final at Robilliard Park this afternoon and while it’s a repeat of the 2017 final, the Barbarians are out to ensure the end result is not the same. Ashburton Barbarians captain Taki Eketone said his side was determined to give home fans something to cheer about, in a game the club didn’t imagine it’d be hosting a couple of weeks ago. “We weren’t supposed to have (the final) at home. “Points-wise, where we were last week on the table, we were never meant to even make the final, but the boys turned up,” Eketone said. Heading into last weekend’s final round robin matches, the Timaru Outlaws looked set in a finals spot at the top of the table, with the Barbarians and Cowboys two points behind. The final round was a double header in Timaru and the Cowboys joined the Outlaws at the top of the table with a big 56-26 win over the Chertsey Oilers, meaning the Barbarians had to win by at least 16 points against the Outlaws to secure that home final, which the Ashburton side did, winning 38-20. That meant the Barbarians, Cowboys and Outlaws all finished on the same points at the top of the table and it came back to points differential, with the Barbarians finishing on top and the Cowboys second. Eketone said there was no shortage of determination within the Barbarians ranks, with the disappointment of missing out on making the final of the Canterbury Rugby League (CRL) division one competition a couple of months ago still fresh. The Barbarians and the Burnham Chevaliers looked on track to be the two teams to fight it out in that final, but after not having been beaten at home all season, the Barbarians lost two at Robilliard Park on the trot and missed out on that second finals berth to the Woolston Rams. The side was gutted and will be

out to make amends today. Despite those two late losses at home, Robilliard Park had largely been a happy hunting ground for the Barbarians this season and Eketone and his crew were hoping the side’s faithful and passionate supporters would be out in force for what was the side’s final game of the season. He said the Barbarians had a

good turn-out at trainings this week ahead of the big game, but the side would be without a couple of key players for the clash, with Johno Simon away and Devaun Thompson having been handed a suspension following last weekend’s win. But, it took more than just two players to make a team, and if the Barbarians could produce a full

80-minute performance a win was on the cards. “We can do it, if we can free up a lot of space for our little fullback Xavier Bartlett,” Eketone said. When the Barbarians met the defending champion Cowboys in round one of the Aoraki Cup – or the Duncan McGregor Memorial Cup – the Cowboys won it by just two points, and the Barbarians

side was confident it could turn that around. Eketone said the Barbarians had it over the Cowboys in the first half, but let the game slip away in the second half, and the Barbarians would not make that same mistake again today. The Barbarians take on the Cowboys in the final at Robilliard Park today at 2pm.

In brief Maguire rejects Manly Embattled NRL club Manly have confirmed Michael Maguire has knocked back an offer to take over from Trent Barrett as Sea Eagles coach next year. Manly still hope to name a new mentor soon, insisting they are still in talks with a “number of outstanding candidates”. It is believed Maguire was offered a lucrative three-year deal to take over from Barrett, who handed in his resignation mid-season and must remain at the club until July 2019 under his contract. - AAP

Manu cleared for Tonga Tonga skipper Sika Manu has been cleared of a knee injury and will lead the Mate Ma’a in their historic rugby league test against Australia in Auckland. Coach Kristian Woolf is breathing a sigh of relief after confirming his inspirational skipper in his trimmed 19-strong squad for the October 20 clash – their first test against Australia. Just weeks ago, Woolf was gutted by reports claiming Manu had suffered a season-ending knee injury playing for Hull FC. Manu leads a strong Tonga squad boasting NRL stars Andrew Fifita, Jason Taumalolo and Tevita Pangai. - AAP

Cleary off to Panthers

Tennis in the sunset a popular pastime Returning a ball during the opening night of the Sunset Doubles tennis competition at the Ashburton Trust Tennis Centre on Thursday night was Lydia Dawber. Dawber was part of the One Hit Wonders team which took on The Ladies in the ladies’ grade. This year’s competition had attracted 36 teams and the biggest change compared to last season was the splitting of division two into an A and a B section. Nine teams would contest division one, while 14 teams were split across the two division two sections, and there were seven teams in division three. Women’s and mixed teams were spread throughout the divisions, but there was also a PHOTO ERIN TASKER 041018-ET-0006 dedicated ladies’ grade and this year that had six teams fighting it out for honours.


Why Coutts and Ellison left Sir Russell Coutts has spoken for the first time about how he and Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison decided to walk away from the America’s Cup. In an exclusive interview published on sailing website, top sailing journalist Justin Chisholm talked to Coutts following the launch of the new sailing circuit, SailGP. Coutts recalled what happened after Oracle lost the Cup to Emirates Team New Zealand in Bermuda last year. “Larry called me and asked me if I wanted to do the America’s Cup again,” Coutts said. “When I told him I didn’t, he said he didn’t want to either and suggested we should do something new. “He loves sailing as much as I do and so we talked about the possibility of creating a proper professional sailing series. “He agreed to underwrite it so that we could do it properly. “Larry’s belief was that we have learned so many lessons together over the last 10 years that we have a really good chance of creating something successful. “What we have with SailGP is

Ivan Cleary has reportedly agreed terms with his former NRL club Penrith and will join the Panthers as coach from 2021. News Corp Australia reported the current Wests Tigers coach has signed a three-year deal with the Panthers. Speculation is sure to mount that Cleary will look to get out of his current deal with the Tigers earlier, perhaps even before the 2019 season. Last week the Panthers announced that Ivan’s son Nathan Cleary had re-signed with the club on a new five-year deal. - AAP

Johnson full of praise Shaun Johnson has praised Kiwis coach Michael Maguire and New Zealand Rugby League boss Greg Peters for connecting with players to create a more positive team environment ahead of next Saturday’s trans-Tasman test against the Kangaroos. The Warriors star has been impressed by the pair’s efforts to reach out and keep senior players informed of their plans to take the Kiwis forward following the disappointments of last year’s World Cup. Johnson says the channels of communication between Kiwis management and players are more open and inclusive than he has experienced since he made his international debut in 2012. - NZME

Storm keep young guns

Larry Ellison an idea totally without any handcuffs on. “This is a blank sheet of paper and making what we believe are the best business decisions based on our experience and what makes more logical business sense.” Coutts believes that the experience gained in the three America’s Cup cycles will prove vital to bringing SailGP to fruition. “I think that if I had been do-

ing this 10 years ago, I don’t think we would have been making as many of the right decisions,” he said. “Now we have realised what works: in a broadcast sense, in an events and hospitality sense, on the branding and how we market an event like this. “All of these things have evolved over time and it is hard when you are first getting into a new business to make all the right deci-

sions, so I really think we stand a better chance at this today than we would have 10 years ago.” Only the British team was announced at the London launch but the other five team lineups – representing Australia, China, France, Japan and USA – are locked in and will be made public at individual country-centric events over the next three weeks. - NZME

They are still waiting on veteran skipper Cameron Smith but Melbourne have locked in young stars Nelson Asofa-Solomona, Jahrome Hughes and Scott Drinkwater going into the NRL off-season. Giant Kiwi front rower Asofa-Solomona, 22, has signed a four-year contract extension that will ensure he stays at the Storm for at least five more seasons. Exciting backs Hughes and Drinkwater both signed new twoyear deals taking them through to the end of 2020 and they could compete for the fullback spot left vacant by superstar Billy Slater’s retirement. - AAP

Shades of Dublin All Blacks loose forward Sam Cane has flashbacks of revenge over Ireland two years ago on the eve of tomorrow’s clash against the Springboks in Pretoria. The Rugby Championship winners go into the tournament’s final game looking to bounce back following the 36-34 defeat to South Africa in Wellington last month. “It sort of reminds me of 2016 when we lost to Ireland and then we had to wait to play them again.

TMOs reined in World Rugby has reined in the power of television match officials for the end of year internationals in Europe and handed back more control to on field referees. The influence of the TMO came under heavy scrutiny during the June tests in the southern hemisphere and the latter stages of the Super Rugby competition. World Rugby council member John Jeffrey, a former Scotland international, said the decision making focus would shift back to on field referees during those internationals. The influence of television officials would also be restricted to checking tries and for foul play. ‘On the run’ conversations between the TMO and three on field officials would also be removed. - NZME

Retirement short-lived By Erin TaskEr

Southern’s Logan Bonnington was called in to the Mid Canterbury squad as injury cover in week four of the Heartland Championship, and today he’ll start in his second game running when Mid Canterbury takes on Buller. PHOTO ASHBURTON GUARDIAN

At the end of the 2018 Mid Canterbury Rugby Watters Cup final, Logan Bonnington hung his boots up and didn’t think he’d be dusting them off again until the start of the 2019 season. But then he got an unexpected call from Mid Canterbury coach Sean Carter. It was the day before Mid Canterbury was due to head to Wanganui for its round four Heartland Championship clash and a mid-week injury to Jesse Houston had left a hole in the Hammers’ forward pack, so Carter turned to Bonnington. The 27-year-old farm worker from Mayfield was no stranger to playing for his province. The Southern lock had been a regular in the side since making his debut in 2012, but he’d decided to take a year off from representative duty this season to spend more time with his wife and his eight-month-old baby girl. “I had played a few years for the Heartland team now and I was just keen to have an early season. “But they got a bit short and Carts gave me a call, a bit of an SOS,” Bonnington said. Less than 24 hours after that call, Bonnington was on a plane with his Mid Canterbury team-mates bound for Wanganui. He was on the bench for that game and thought he might get 10 minutes late in the game, but it turned out he got a good 40 minutes on the park in that 30-12 loss. Bonnington hadn’t picked up a rugby ball for a few weeks, but his fitness

wasn’t too bad, fortunately. It just took him a bit longer to recover. He didn’t play in the next game against South Canterbury as he was away – having made himself unavailable for selection he’d made a few plans – but when Mid Canterbury returned home to play East Coast in round six, Bonnington was not just there, he was starting. He ran on in the number four jersey in that game, a 56-7 win, and he scored a try as a bonus. Today, when Mid Canterbury takes on Buller in a crucial clash in Westport, Bonnington will again start at lock. It may not have been how Bonnington planned to be spending his Saturday afternoons in September and October, but he was happy to be back in the side and was hopeful Mid Canterbury could bounce back from three losses and still make the Meads Cup (top four) finals. Bonnington was no stranger to playing Buller. He was one of the few players in the side that had experienced beating the coast side. The last time Mid Canterbury beat Buller was in the 2014 Meads Cup final, which the then Glenn Moore-coached side won 36-13. Buller hadn’t lost a game that season and headed into the final as the hot favourites, but Mid Canterbury defied the underdog tag to take the title. This time around Buller had not won a game all season, and would go into today’s match as the underdogs. But Bonnington said nothing could be taken for granted against a side like Buller.

‘Winning the only option’ By Erin TaskEr

Mid Canterbury head into today’s crucial round seven Heartland rugby championship clash against Buller as favourites on paper, but coach Sean Carter and his men know a win won’t come easy. Buller haven’t won a game this season and are languishing down the bottom of the points table with East Coast the only team underneath them. It was a position the Coast side wasn’t used to, and one a proud union would not be happy with, so Mid Canterbury is wary. Carter said Buller would be out to take at least one big scalp this season and his players would be doing everything they could to ensure that scalp wasn’t theirs. Mid Canterbury’s season was hanging by a thread, in seventh spot on the points table with just two games to go and Carter said there was only one option, and that was to win. “We just don’t know where we’re going to end up. “It’s taking it game by game and doing our best to put everything else behind us and looking to what’s ahead,” Carter said. When it came to incentives though, Buller have plenty. A first win for the season, and a win over old foes Mid Canterbury was just the start of it.

Today is a big day for Buller, with one of the side’s stalwarts – Luke Brownlee – set to run on for his 200th appearance for his representative side. He made his debut in 1999 and as a mark of respect both Buller and Mid Canterbury will form a guard of honour as he runs out onto the field for today’s game. Mid Canterbury will also be marking a milestone today, with

back in the second half and won it 40-32. The last time Mid Canterbury beat Buller was in the 2014 Meads Cup final. The two didn’t meet in 2015, and when the two met in 2016 it was again Buller’s day. Mid Canterbury heads into the 2018 chapter of the long history between the two sides with their fate still up in the air.

It’s just unfortunate that we have put ourselves in that position where we are at the mercy of other teams

the game being loosehead prop Tom Heywood’s blazer game (16 games), and although that was a dip in the ocean compared to Brownlee’s achievements, Carter said it was still a big deal for the Hammers. He said Heywood was a young man who had worked hard in his first season in the green and gold last year and was excelling in 2018. When the two sides met last year it was Buller who came out on top. Mid Canterbury got out to a handy early lead, but Buller came

With six rounds gone, Mid Canterbury are seventh on the points table on 17 points, with three wins and three losses to their name. The Meads Cup (top four) was still within reach, and the Lochore Cup (fifth to eighth) was a realistic possibility, but the unthinkable was also on the cards – no finals at all. “It’s just unfortunate that we have put ourselves in that position where we are at the mercy of other teams,” Carter said. Today’s Mid Canterbury lineup featured only a couple of

changes from that which took to the park against East Coast and won 56-7 a week ago. Jarred Percival was away, so Nathan McCloy will get his second start of the season at first-five and Timoci Nabakeke would slot in to fullback, while Seta Koroitamana returns to the forwards after a week off. Percival’s absence left a gap in the side in terms of wisdom, option identification and communication, but Carter had confidence in the players that will take to the park today against a Buller side which will take no prisoners. Buller is solid across the park, with a big forward pack and a couple of players who could really open a game up, Carter said. “They rely a lot on James Lash who is their first-five and their game maker. “He’s quite a tactical player and uses the cross field kick quite a bit, and they have got a very solid centre who they go to, and a couple of good ball runners in the forwards,” Carter said. The biggest hurdle for Mid Canterbury this week could be the timetable of the past couple of days. The players were up at 5am yesterday to get to Christchurch to catch a plane to Hokitika, before bussing through to Westport for today’s game, which will start at the earlier than usual time of 1pm.

It’s a quirk of fate that the All Blacks have produced an endless stream of world class first-fives in the last decade but no iconic or famed halfback-No. 10 combination. What’s particularly quirky is that the All Blacks have dominated world rugby in the same period and yet most other history-making sides have had internationally recognised 9-10 combination pulling the strings. The great Welsh sides of the 1970s were governed by Gareth Edwards and Barry John and then Edwards and Phil Bennett. Australia had Nick Farr-Jones and Michael Lynagh in their first era and George Gregan and Stephen Larkham in their second. England had the pairing of Matt Dawson and Jonny Wilkinson and the Springboks built their 1995 World Cup triumph on Joost van der Westhuizen and Joel Stransky. The All Blacks have built plenty of enduring combinations in the last 15 years. They have produced a world class locking combination in Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick. The loose trio of Jerome Kaino, Richie McCaw and Kieran Read became recognised as one of the best and Ma’a Nonu and Conrad Smith have a world record as a centre pairing. But the All Blacks haven’t had a famed 9-10 combinations since Justin Marshall and Andrew Mehrtens. The question that arises is whether it is time to start considering Aaron Smith and Beauden Barrett as a great halfback-firstfive combination? They will start their 30th test together in Pretoria which makes them the most experienced All Blacks partnership since Mehrtens and Marshall. But what to make of the SmithBarrett combination? Marshall and Mehrtens had both individual and collective strengths that made them hugely influential tactical directors. Marshall, derided for an ill-conceived perception he was a poor passer, was one of the most astute and tactically aware halfbacks of the modern era. Smith and Barrett are a different proposition entirely. They are both individually among the best to ever play in their positions, but they tend to impose themselves through the speed of their movements and by directing a high octane game-plan. But there is a statistic that alludes to a weakness of the partnership. Their win ratio is 80 per cent, which compares with the All Blacks’ win ratio of 90 per cent since they played their first test together in 2014. Steve Hansen reckoned the game management in the most recent loss was non-existent. And this is the concern – they haven’t been consistently good at adapting when the opposition are shutting down their space. But they are relatively young and the next 12 months will demand they develop a greater breadth of tactical approaches and patience, discipline and control. - NZME

Quirky mare up for Livamol

The Croupier ready to roll

Multiple Group Two-winning mare Our Abbadean is after her first Group One scalp at Hastings today after impressing with her two fresh-up runs at Hawke’s Bay’s spring carnival. Trainer Jamie Richards has been pleased with the six-yearold’s first two runs when third in the Gr.1 Tarzino Trophy (1400m) and fifth in the Gr.1 Windsor Park Plate (1600m) a fortnight ago and believes the 2040m distance of today’s Gr.1 Livamol Classic will suit the mare down to the ground. “She’s got a few quirks, she sort of has to have her own routine,” Richards said. “After she ran so well first-up at Hastings we thought we’d go back and have a crack at the Group One (Windsor Park Plate). “I was really pleased (with her run in the Windsor Park Plate). “She drew awkwardly and had to go back on a day where it favoured on-speed and on the fence. “She got squeezed up at the 200m and then got a bit of room and finished up nicely for fifth, so we were really pleased with her. “She has trained on well and seems to get better as she gets deeper into her preparation and especially when she gets up in distance like she will be on Saturday.” Our Abbadean won over 2000m at Group Two-level in both the

A sparkling workout on a dodgy surface at Gore on Thursday told Shane Matheson everything he needed to know ahead of The Croupier’s run at Ascot Park today. The Roll With Joe gelding, who had been a little under the weather a week prior, showed he was back to his normal self with an impressive private display. He ran second in the Nugget Final at Winton last week, sitting parked for most of the race, and Matheson says the effort was extra special given the lead-up to that. “I thought he was just a little bit down on his best before it. “In fact, I was a wee bit worried about him as he went off his tucker. “So, given that, the run was even better than it looked.” A penalty-free junior driver event over the staying trip of 2700 metres is the only reason Matheson considered backing him up this week. But as the week has worn on, his confidence levels have skyrocketed. “He’s back to his old self now; I gave him a run at Gore yesterday (Thursday) and he was great. “The track was awful – it hadn’t been harrowed and there were potholes everywhere – and it had me thinking it probably wasn’t the best idea to be doing it. “But I needed to know he was right to start. “I only had a little watch with me, but he left me very happy with the time he ran. “He’s back, and as well as he was three or four weeks ago.” Big picture, Matheson sees The Croupier going through the grades fairly quickly. “This fella has a bit of a future.” - NZHN

Our Abbadean and Opie Bosson have the Livamol in their sights today. Travis Stakes and the Awapuni Gold Cup last season, so her trainer believes she will appreciate the step-up in distance. “I think that she can hold a

spot over 2000m, usually she is just outpaced over those sprint distances, but when she won the Travis she was a bit handier, so all things being equal we’d like to

ride her a bit handier if we can. “There are a lot of horses in that field looking for 2000m now, so I am sure it is going to be a very interesting race.” - NZME

Bonneval’s stellar career coming to an end The curtain has come down on the outstanding racing career of dual New Zealand Horse of the Year Bonneval and a change in ownership looks likely in the near future. The Murray Baker and Andrew


Forsman-trained mare has given her owners Alastair Lawrence, Terry Jarvis and John Rattray a great thrill during her career, but the decision has been made to retire her after her two disappointing unplaced runs in Melbourne.

“We have taken that decision to retire her,” Lawrence said. “It has been a very hard decision to make, particularly given that we had such high hopes for her this spring because she is now a fully mature mare.

“I think that it’s apparent to us now that her heart is no longer in it. It looks like she has lost the will you need to compete at that level. “It’s a tough call to make, but it is the right thing to do for the horse.” - NZME

In brief


Taking on the big guns Methven triathlete Brea Roderick is in Argentina preparing to take on the world’s best young triathletes. Roderick – a 16-year-old Mount Hutt College student – was one of two athletes selected by the NZ Olympic Committee to represent New Zealand in triathlon at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games along with Auckland’s Dylan McCullough. The pair were selected due to their strong results in the youth division of the 2018 New Plymouth OTU Triathlon, which doubled as the Oceania Youth Olympic Games qualifying event. Roderick was second in her division, but the first placed New Zealander. In Buenos Aires both Roderick and McCullough will compete as individuals before joining with Australian athletes to form an Oceania team for the mixed relay event, at the Youth Olympics which were due to begin today and ran through until October 18. Earlier this year Roderick travelled to Australia where she was part of the New Zealand team which placed first at the Australian

Under-19 Mixed Team Relay Championship in Adelaide. Roderick first experienced triathlon at an interschool competition when she was 13, and as of May this year she had an ITU world ranking of 530. “I love that you get to compete and train in three different disciplines, it’s a lot of fun.” Roderick has dreams of representing New Zealand at the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics, and she recently received a $5000 AMP Regional Scholarship with the Mainland region to go towards that dream. She was now one of nine regional scholarship winners around New Zealand vying for another $5000, with voting open for the $5000 AMP People’s Choice Scholarship. Voting for the People’s Choice Scholarship was open to the public now and closed on 21 October. To vote, the public texts the first name of their nominee to 2948. Standard SMS charges and terms and conditions apply and people can visit for more details.

Methven’s Brea Roderick strides it out.

Premier League clubs Chelsea and Arsenal came through unscathed in the latest Europa League action with victories over Hungarian champions Vidi and Qarabag respectively. Teenager Emile Smith-Rowe scored his first senior goal as Arsenal defeated Qarabag 3-0, while Alvaro Morata netted for the Blues against the Azerbaijan champions in the only goal at Stamford Bridge. The 25-year-old scored with 20 minutes to go, but only after Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri had turned to Eden Hazard in a bid to break a deadlock which stood due to the Blues’ wasteful finishing. - PA

Hamilton fastest

Weather the quandary at Bathurst Supercars drivers will be forced to qualify for the Bathurst 1000 in the dark over their car setups after rain returned to Mount Panorama. Co-drivers enjoyed the chance to take their cars for a spin on a dry track earlier yesterday, when reigning champion Luke Youlden went fastest. Yet the main-game drivers haven’t enjoyed the same luxury. Yesterday’s final practice session was washed away, with several cars – including Jamie Whincup and other Commodores

Their shock Commonwealth Games result still stings but Australia are more wary of New Zealand’s postGold Coast response in the Constellation Cup netball series. Coach Lisa Alexander believes their recent Quad Series success had helped exorcise their demons since the Gold Coast Games where they were upset by England in the gold medal playoff. However, Alexander said they were bracing for a backlash from the Silver Ferns who are rebuilding from their dire Commonwealth Games campaign. Australia begin their four-match series against New Zealand in Brisbane tomorrow. - AAP

Diamonds wary of Ferns

– choosing to stay in pit lane. Nissans took out the top two spots, with Michael Caruso and Rick Kelly quickest. The rain allowed Ford drivers to again jump up the timing charts, with five of the top 10 fastest. The Falcons, on their last run at the 1000km endurance classic before being replaced by Mustangs in 2019, have shown themselves to be much more competitive for pace in the wet than dry. But with forecast clear skies on Saturday and Sunday, the tension along pit lane to begin dryweather racing was evident. Even though Scott McLaughlin,

who sits second in the championship, is in line to benefit from a wet qualifying session, he was keen for the skies to clear. “It’s annoying. I want to get out and drive in the dry. “But what can you do?” he said. Just 20 drivers recorded lap times during the regular driver practice session. Among them were Mark Winterbottom and Craig Lowndes, who both saw setbacks during the co-driver session. Dean Canto crashed at Forrest Elbow which left car No.5 needing significant work prior to Winterbottom’s practice.

He rolled up his sleeves to help with the panel-beating, even sweeping up the garage. Lowndes’ co-driver Steven Richards reported a power steering issue which ended his session early, with Lowndes completing just two laps. Both were off the pace. Youlden, partnering again with 2017 champ David Reynolds, time of 2:06.6471 stands as the quickest of the weekend. “We had our struggles yesterday but we’ve got a handle on it. “Now it’s up to me and Dave to put it together,” Youlden said. - AAP

Championship leader Lewis Hamilton has clocked the fastest time in the first practice session for the Japanese Grand Prix to lead a onetwo finish for Mercedes. Hamilton had a time of 1 minute, 28.691 seconds, 0.44 seconds ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas. Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo was third. Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel rounded out the top five. - AP

Skaife a legend Mount Panorama champions Mark Skaife, Gregg Hansford and commentator Mike Raymond have been added to the Legends Lane at Bathurst. The trio of high achievers were announced as new inductees yesterday ahead of the Bathurst 1000, when another legend will be honoured. The Ford Cortina driven to victory in 1963 by Bob Jane, who died late last month, will lead the legends lap. - AAP

Stanaway doing the Mt Panorama rain dance By Ben McKay After Richie Stanaway’s infamous Townsville blow-up, his Supercars outfit Tickford Racing declared the rookie had moved on. On Thursday at Bathurst, it became clear the Kiwi was still battling through a frustrating maiden campaign. Stanaway arrived as a full-time driver in the series with a superb pedigree, including race wins in the World Endurance Championship and fine runs in the Le Mans 24-hour classic. When he combined with Cam Waters to win last year’s Sandown 500, Stanaway was considered as one of Supercars’ next big things. Yet it hasn’t happened yet for

the 26-year-old. This year, he has a single top-10 finish to his name. Frustrations boiled over at the Reid Park circuit in July, where Stanaway vented steam at a team tyre blunder by drifting his Falcon around corners. Stanaway didn’t expect to be winning races in his first year – but he didn’t expect to be slumming it in third-last place either. It came as a nice surprise then that he topped the timing charts in practice for the Bathurst 1000, joining fellow Ford drivers Will Davison and Alex Premat as the quickest during Thursday’s three sessions. So had Stanaway turned a corner from his antics in North Queensland?

Richie Stanaway is still a bit off the pace in Supercars. “Not really. I feel the same every weekend,” he said. “I had a few rounds where I get a bit of confidence back ... then a few rounds where I lose confidence. But a rookie season is

about learning. No one expects you to be up the front and I haven’t expected to be up the front.” Stanaway suggested the Falcon – which is set to be replaced by the Mustang in 2019 – was the

chief source of his frustrations. Team-mates Mark Winterbottom (12th in the championship), Chaz Mostert (eighth) and Waters (17th) are also battling away. “If Mark and Chaz and Cam were 1-2-3 and I was where I’ve been all season, then obviously I’d be criticising myself a lot more,” he said. “We can’t qualify and we can’t do more than three laps of the race with pace.” There is one hope for Stanaway and the Falcon pack this year in Bathurst – he hopes rain drenches Mt Panorama during Sunday’s big race. “We’re not remotely close to the pace in the dry to get any kind of result, the only hope for us is rain,” he said. - AAP

McLAUCHLAN, Barry Ronald Heaton – It has been several months since Barry passed away. Marlene, Nicola and Steve, Simon and Judy would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all those people who offered their kind words of support, food galore, visits, cards and letters. Barry always loved talking to people, and he was always very Community minded and was actively involved in a lot of different organisations throughout his life. He would have been very humbled by all the attention, praise and beautiful words said by so many people after his passing. He always gave things 110 percent even in his laster years when his health betrayed him. But he still did not let that stop him from giving of his time. While Barry was involved in many wonderful and important organisations we would like to particularly acknowledge Mayfield Lions for their kindness and caring towards Barry over the last few years, you were so supportive and inclusive of him. This was a huge part of his life. Barry lived by the philosophy of if you don’t use it you will lose it. He never slowed down. Barry has left a big gap in the McLauchlan clan and is sorely missed and loved. We apologise for the lateness of this notice but please know that all your love and support has been greatly appreciated and has helped tremendously over the last few months. Please accept this as a personal acknowledgement to all your cards and visits.

Cryptic crossword

Saturday, October 6, 2018

Simon Shuker’s Code Cracker


ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19): In school, we study for the tests to get the grade. Real-life relationships aren’t forged in tests. We make the grade through routine pleasant interactions. TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20): Games, awards or some kind of competition feature. Win or lose, be gracious and brief. Either way, you’re likely to win a friend, acquaintance or at the very least, a new contact. GEMINI (May 21-Jun 21): Most people will go wide; you should go deep. Do the best you can do at the thing you do the best and you’ll be sprinting past the rest, making a name for yourself, carving out your unique niche. CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 22): You’ll be making things and presenting things. Perfection isn’t the point. Take a step back. What will people’s take away likely be? Speak to that. Any attempts at perfection are misguided. LEO (Jul 23-Aug 22): It’s not about going slow, it’s about creating a sustainable rhythm you can carry out time and time again, a steady march that will get you across the regions to where you want to be. VIRGO (Aug 23-Sep 22): It’s not always easy to figure out what you really want and need because it’s different for every person. To see yourself and your needs more accurately is the start to attracting more desirable circumstances. LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 23): You have charisma to spare. The challenge is in directing it well and handling the attention that comes with it. Which is the most appealing choice. Which is the kindest? SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 21): What you’re making isn’t for everyone, so don’t concern yourself with what everyone thinks about it. Cater your efforts specifically to the people for whom they will matter. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): The way to happiness will be very simple. Find what matters to you and get deeper into it. Learn it well, do it often, take your understanding and appreciation of it to the highest level you can. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19): Love doesn’t always feel like love because it takes on so many forms. Some of the forms, for instance, the more truthful ones, can sting a little but you’ll still find them very worthwhile. AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): Informal gatherings will be part of the fun. The conversation will be interesting, the food delicious. Plus, it will be satisfying to know that you can charm people just by being you. PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20): Let someone take care of you. You don’t have to be needy to do this. People take care of one another in many different ways. Accepting a little help or tenderness is as good for the relationship as giving it is.
