Bullying law change ‘overdue’ BY MYLES HUME


New cyber-bullying laws will add weight to the fight against online attacks that are becoming all too common in Mid Canterbury and across New Zealand. John Hobbs, who is leading a project to clamp-down on bullying for Safer Ashburton, says a new bill introduced to Parliament yesterday would serve as a

strong deterrent for cyber-bullies and help prevent incidents such as the vicious attack on an Ashburton girl last month. Justice Minister Judith Collins’ Harmful Digital Communications Bill, revealed yesterday, aims to protect victims and hold perpetrators to account. It will include setting up an agency to take complaints, allow complainants to take District Court action and make it a

criminal offence to post harmful online comments that incite suicide. Mr Hobbs said cyber-bullying had emerged as a major concern in Mid Canterbury. He said introducing the bill coincided with the launch of the Think First project’s website this week. “I think it’s great we finally have something to try and bring down cyber-bullies but it is a bit

of a shame it has taken this long to get something like this set up because cyber-bullying has been around for a while.” Mr Hobbs hoped the new laws would stop incidents such as last month when a Facebook page was set up to attack a local. “The best part of this bill for me is the new offence of inciting to commit suicide being punishable by up to three years in prison.

“The suicide rate in New Zealand is alarmingly high and noone has the right to say someone doesn’t deserve to live.” Mount Hutt College principal John Schreurs said it was about people “acting responsibly” online, a message that is now being widely spread throughout Mid Canterbury schools. He said the laws would “take a while” to change the online social media culture.

Rio begins preparations for 2016 Olympics City authorities in Rio de Janeiro began demolishing an elevated ring road skirting the city’s port area this week as part of a huge makeover for the 2016 Olympic Games. A 7km tunnel will replace a road carrying some 70,000 vehicles a day, which obscured the view to the picturesque vistas over Guanabara Bay and towards Sugarloaf Mountain. The road was closed off on Saturday night in preparation as Rio undergoes urban regeneration ahead of the Games, the first to be staged in South America. The closure is expected to lead to bottlenecks in a city of more than six million. - AFP


Hobbit fans get sneak peek Director Peter Jackson has given fans a sneak peek of his latest Tolkien epic, revealing he is working non-stop to get The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug ready to premiere in December. Jackson took a break from editing to host what was billed as a “world fan event” yesterday, featuring question and answer sessions with stars from the movie streamed online from cinemas in Wellington, New York, Los Angeles and London. Barefoot and relaxed, he said contact with his fans helped reenergise him during the gruelling editing process ahead of the movie’s December 13 debut. “We haven’t finished the movie, it’s pretty intense at the moment,” he told the audience at Wellington’s Embassy cinema.

117 same-sex couples tie the knot More than 100 same-sex couples have married since it was made legal in August. Provisional Statistics New Zealand figures show 117 gay couples have tied the knot since on August 19. Statistics Minister Maurice Williamson said 61 female couples and 56 males couples wed. Forty-seven of the 117 marriages were couples who transferred their civil union to marriage, he said. “The information also shows one third of same-sex marriages were to overseas residents, compared with 10 per cent of opposite-sex marriages.’’ There were 33 civil unions registered over the same period, down from 53 in the same quarter a year ago.

Authorities say a Nebraska man is getting his motorcycle back - 46 years after it was stolen from his backyard. US Customs and Border Protection said the black and blue 1953 Triumph Tiger 100 was recovered last week at the Port of Los Angeles. It was on its way to Japan, with its value listed as $9000. The bike was reported stolen in February 1967. The California Highway Patrol will return the bike to its original owner, who is now in his 70s and still lives in Omaha, Nebraska. His name was not released.

Three days until submissions close Just three days remain until submissions close on the Ashburton District’s draft local alcohol policy. The policy was formulated by a working party made up of police, bar owners, council staff and members of the community. Two community surveys were also carried out before the policy was written. The draft policy contains proposals designed to address issues around the sale and consumption of alcohol with key

proposals including: A one way door policy for all on-licence premises from 1am through to the latest closing time allowed of 3am; maximum off-licence hours to be 8am to 9pm; clubs required to have a qualified manager on site if there are 20 or more people on the premises and the requirement for BYO on-licence premises to have a qualified manager on site if alcohol is being consumed. To date 45 submissions have been received, with most sup-

porting the draft policy. Council policy advisor Jenna Marsden said there had been strong support for reduced trading hours for off-licences and for the proposed one-way door restriction. “In general, comments on the maximum trading hours for pubs and bars have been mixed. Some are happy with the proposed maximum hours of 7am to 3am the next day, while others think 3am is too late, or 7am is too early,” Mrs Marsden said.

Because the liquor policy would introduce significant changes to when people could buy and consume alcohol, Mrs Marsden said it was important people took the time to have their say. Submissions on the draft LAP will be accepted until 5pm on Friday, online through the council website, or by completing a submission form and dropping it off at council reception. The council will hear and deliberate on submissions later

this month, and will produce a provisional LAP early in 2014. This will be open to appeals, but only people who submitted through the consultation process running now will be able to make an appeal. A summary of the policy, the full draft local alcohol policy and submission form are available from the Council website www., the Ashburton public library or from the council offices at 5 Baring Square West, Ashburton.


Jessica breaks male stranglehold on chess champs By Sue NewmaN


Jessica Pelayo has broken a 45-year male stranglehold on the Ashburton Chess Club’s championships. This year the Ashburton College 18-year-old won her way through several rounds of play in the championships to take the title by one point from defending champion Nigel Richardson. She is the fourth college student to win the title but the first female club member to do so. Jessica learned to play chess as a 10-year-old from her older sister but it wasn’t long before she was beating her sister at every match and a short time later posing a serious threat to her dad’s reign as family chess champ. For Jessica, there’s a lot to love about chess. “It’s a great brain exercise, good for thinking and it’s a good pastime,” she said. That she is just one of two girls in the Ashburton Chess Club doesn’t faze Jessica. On the board you’re all equals, she said. On the way to winning the championship title, Jessica soundly beat her school team coach Ken Pow and now


admits that had been one of her goals this year. For any coach, there’s a certain satisfaction in being toppled by someone you’ve coached, Mr Pow said. “If Jessica was living in Auckland she’d be a lot further on with her chess. She’s got the good memory and the good analytical brain that you need.” In some ways it also seems that to be good at chess at secondary school level, being born outside New Zealand is also an advantage, Mr Pow said. The college’s top team has no native born Kiwi members – number one Vlad Barbu is from Romania and Jessica from the Philippines and among the team lists at the nationals there was scarcely a single Kiwi name, he said. Perhaps surprisingly, Jessica is not the college’s chess champion this year; she’s had to bow to the superior playing skills of fellow student Vlad Barbu. Together they were part of the school’s top team that this year won the South Island title and came fourth in the national champs. The Year 13 student will head to Canterbury University next year to study computer science and says she’s keen to pit her skills against a new group of fellow chess playing students.

Stable force for Mid Canty BY MYLES HUME

lege graduates to be posted throughout the Canterbury District, including as far south as Timaru, until July next year. However, a raft of fresh faces will not be appearing on the beat in Ashburton, says MidSouth Canterbury area commander Inspector Dave Gaskin. “There are no recruits coming to Ashburton, the station has a certain allocation and the numbers 100 per cent match that,” Mr Gaskin said. “Timaru will be getting some recruits because they are below


Canterbury’s policing stocks may have experienced an unusual exodus of officers this year, but staff at the Ashburton station do not appear to be looking elsewhere. Due to a surge of retirements and resignations, the Canterbury policing district has seen a high annual staff turnover rate of 3.7 per cent in March and 6 per cent in October. That has prompted a speedy reaction with 48 police col-

their established numbers.” He said the district had been “over-strength” in recent years and were currently about five staff members down. The latest to join the Ashburton Police Station ranks was Sergeant Bryan Ennis, who was introduced last month to replace sergeant at the time Sean Buchanan. Mr Ennis moved from the Timaru station and was promoted from his senior constable role. Mr Gaskin said there was

“not a great deal of movement” throughout the Mid-South Canterbury policing district which helped with stability in the community and kept a raft of local knowledge on the beat. The Canterbury District had a freeze on staff last year after a surge in new recruits after the earthquakes, but was now forced to seek new staff. Tasman and Southland police districts were also over-allocated and faced a similar positing freeze in recent years.


Southern rata trees for Methven residents Ashburton Forest and Bird are giving away hundreds of southern rata trees to Methven and foothills residents. The trees will see gardens tinged with red each summer as the native trees flower, and may attract more bellbirds to the area. The giveaway is part of a nationwide initiative under Project Crimson, which is aiming to restore some of the lost red flowering plants of pohutukawa and rata to the country. Branch president Edith Smith said about 700 southern rata had been cultivated from cuttings from trees on Rhyolite Ridge at Mt Somers, grown by Agribusiness. The plants were now about two years old, and she wanted anyone in the Methven and foothills areas who wanted one to get in touch with either herself, on 308-4440, or fellow member Val Clemens, on 308-5620. Each tree came with a plant guard, the cost of which was $2.

Court appearance A 23-year-old man has been arrested in relation to the discovery of a body in a house in Wainuiomata, Wellington last week. Hutt Valley police say the man will appear in Hutt Valley District Court today charged with murder of Huri King-Mosen. Police are not looking for anyone else. Mr King-Mosen, 24, was found dead in his home at 3pm on Tuesday last week. - APNZ

Armed robbery Police are investigating after an armed robbery of a Christchurch service station. A man armed with what appeared to be a gun entered the Caltex service station on Russley Road about 1am on Tuesday, Acting Inspector John Robinson of southern police communications said. The lone attendant was unhurt but “pretty traumatised” by the incident, Mr Robinson said. The offender left in a car and it was not known if he had an accomplice. - APNZ

Joint funeral Ice picks were held up in a guard of honour as the caskets of climbers Nicole Sutton and Hiroki Ogawa left a church in Auckland yesterday following their joint funeral.

They had been climbing as part of the New Zealand Alpine Club’s annual trip to the mountain. Ms Sutton, 29, and Dr Ogawa, 31, died after being trapped sheltering in an ice trench near the summit for two nights in bad weather. - APNZ

Restaurant to open in complex By SuSan SandyS

Nando’s will be among businesses setting up shop in a new Burnett Street retail and office block expected to open by Christmas. Scaffolding is expected to be removed from Holmeslee Square this week, before finishing touches are applied to the two-storey retail, office and restaurant complex. Indian Minar operator Imran

meslee Enterprises spokesperson, Mark Holmes, said yesterday none of those were planning on setting up shop there. “There’s been a few rumours going around, but they are false,” Mr Holmes said. There had been one franchise interested, which may or may not have been one of those, which had lost interest when it had failed to find a franchisee. He was in negotiation with

Khan confirmed yesterday he was to open a Nando’s restaurant in the complex, and would soon provide further information. Confirmation of the restaurant chain opening comes after there has been many rumours about it and other chains opening in the building, among them Muffin Break and Wendy’s, as well as a Japanese restaurant. Holmeslee Square owner Hol-

He said there had been much interest from other potential lessees, interest he expected to increase further when scaffolding was removed later this week. Mr Holmes hoped the building would be more than 50 per cent occupied by the time it opened, which he hoped would be late November or early December, but would be by Christmas time at the latest.

one other business planning on opening in the building, but negotiations would not be finalised for another three or four days. He could not say whether it would be a food operator or other retailer. He welcomed the highly successful Nando’s coming to the town, and believed the lower floor courtyard complex it would occupy in the building would be perfect for it.


Carolyn’s cookbook dream finally becomes a reality By Sue newman

Dietician Carolyn King had always nurtured a desire to write a cookbook but took until retirement for that desire to be realised. This was never going to be a run-of-the-mill book, however. She might have been a New Zealand-born Chinese, but Mrs King wanted to tell the story of her heritage and the women who had kept the recipes of the past alive in a new country. She decided to dedicate her book to Chinese grandmothers (Por Pors), telling their stories and preserving their recipes for today’s generation of Chinese New Zealanders. “This was also a way of recognising the Chinese women who had given so much to the New Zealand community. I talked to 15 grandmothers, aged 65 to 88

from around New Zealand and I was so amazed at what they had all achieved in their lives. They were so willing to share their knowledge,” she said. Because Chinese recipes are handed down from mother to daughter in verbal form and the learning is all “show and tell’, Mrs King said recording those recipes involved a lot of listening and writing. Working with local photographer Peter MacGregor opened up new challenges because she not only had to cook each dish but also to present it in a way that was eye-catching, Mrs King said. Her book is not a reference book; it may not follow strict tradition with every recipe and every ingredient. Rather it is a collection of Chinese recipes that take advantage of modern methods and equipment.

“This is good, honest family food, traditional food,” Mrs King said. Fusion food meant New Zealanders today had come a long way from the days when chop suey and chow mein were considered odd, Mrs King said. “The only thing they can’t seem to get their heads around are fish heads and chicken feet.” With the book on the market, Mrs King receives regular emails from women in their 40s and 50s who say the book is inspiring them to cook the food of their grandmothers. With Por Pors Cookbook now completed, Mrs King is determined there won’t be a second book – yet. “This was such a wonderful, exhilarating experience and it all happened so quickly at the finish – my poor husband,” she said.

Carrying a PLB saves lives

Copycat group taken down

By susan sanDys anD aPnZ Methven Search and Rescue leader Don Geddes was pleased to hear of the successful rescue of an injured climber from the “rugged country” of the Arrowsmith Range this week. A 36-year-old Christchurch woman was airlifted after falling some 300 metres while on a multi-day expedition to Cameron Glacier on the Arrowsmith Range. Methven Search and Rescue parties and the air force were involved in a rescue to the same area over 20 years ago, one that illustrated just how rugged the area was. Mr Geddes said it involved a party of two climbers who underestimated the length of their climb. They got into difficulty when they almost found themselves bluffed. One launched himself off the side of a hill when he had run out of rope and started hallucinating from dehydration and fatigue. Luck-

ily he had a soft landing and managed to make his way to a hut, where a Methven ground search party located him. The second man was also found by a ground team after walking out of the area via the Cameron Glacier. Mr Geddes said the rescue this week showed not only the importance of personal locator beacons (PLBs), but also of generally being prepared, with “adequate equipment, adequate skills and knowledge”. A Westpac Rescue spokesman said the party, which included the woman and two male companions from Wellington, activated their PLB about 8.45pm on Sunday, and a helicopter with night vision equipment left from Christchurch soon afterwards. They quickly located the stricken party but because of the high altitude - Cameron Glacier has an average elevation of 1890m - and strong winds they were forced to land

some distance away. The spokesman, who declined to give his name, said he and another paramedic trekked about 40 minutes to the base of the glacier, where the woman lay unconscious in a tent with two broken legs and a head injury. “What they think’s happened is she was abseiling a pitch on the side of the glacier and her snow anchor came out and she fell about 300 metres,” he said. “It was ice and hard-packed snow and it was steep, probably around 50 degrees.” She had been wearing a helmet but it had come off in the fall. The paramedics stabilised her broken limbs as best they could and packed her into a survival bag in preparation for the trip back across the ice. As they did they heard the thundering noise of an avalanche close by. “It did sound very close and very loud. You could feel the vi-

brations through the ground.” They could not see the avalanche but the helicopter pilot, who was waiting at the other end of the glacier, had a good view and said it looked “massive”. “He said it looked very large and very close to our little lights.” With the help of the two other climbers - who the spokesman said did an “awesome” job - they slid the woman across the ice to the waiting helicopter and flew her to Christchurch Hospital. Rescue Co-ordination Centre New Zealand search and rescue officer Chris Henshaw said the incident was a stark illustration of how carrying a PLB saves lives. “Had the party not been able to quickly make contact with search and rescue authorities, there is no doubt that the woman could have died, given the environment and the extent of her injuries,” he said.


Having a flutter as cup fever hits By susan sanDys

Mid Cantabrians did not hold back from having a flutter on the Melbourne Cup yesterday, which is proving more and more popular every year. Among winners were Dennis O’Reilly, who was watching the famous thoroughbred race at the Ashburton Club and MSA. He backed the favourite, Fiorente, and it paid off with “a couple of hundred” dollars in return. He had done his homework when it came to finding which horse to back. “I thought it was about time Gai Waterhouse won a Melbourne Cup, and it was ridden by Damian Oliver, he’s ridden a few Melbourne Cup winners,” he said. And the odds had been good, $7 for a favourite was a good pay-out. Other punters were not so practical when choosing which horse to back, and an Ashburton TAB spokesperson said many chose according to more fanciful reasons, such as if the horse’s number matched the date of their birthday, or if they liked the sound of the horse’s name. The TAB was busy as hun-

dreds flocked to place their bets. “It seems to be bigger than last year I think,” she said. Punters at the MSA yesterday included 80-year-old Don Summerfield, who had been betting on the cup for 50 years straight, and his friend Dave McCrea. They backed Seville and an unsuccessful quinnella, but with the Melbourne Cup being a tradition that they and other family members had watched together for 27 years, they weren’t complaining. “It’s just the awe of it, it’s the biggest race in Australasia, we follow horses so we are naturally drawn to it,” Mr McCrea said. And it was all on at the South Rakaia Hotel yesterday, where Melbourne Cup fever marks the biggest day for the pub each year. “It’s crazy,” publican Peter Harrison said yesterday leading up to the race. The atmosphere was buzzing and there would be prizes, including for best dressed. A punters’ club was running at $600, which would go on the race, and individual betting had ranged up to $400 for trifectas and quaddies.

By Patrice Dougan anD Matthew theunissen At least one copycat Facebook group has sprung up in the wake of the Roast Busters underage sex scandal, with links to an Auckland school. It has already been taken down but not before Mount Albert Grammar School staff called police. The latest development came as the members of the original Roast Busters group, which bragged about getting girls drunk and having sex with them, went to ground in the face of mounting anger including death threats, and police drafted in a senior officer from elsewhere to go over the case. The copycat group appeared to be a “Mount Albert chapter” of Roast Busters and was linked to the school, Mount Albert Grammar School principal Dale Burden confirmed last night. He said school staff were alerted to the page by a concerned parent on Monday night. Three or four of his students, as well as a former student, were members. “We didn’t read any bragging or any reference at all to what they had done or what they were going to do,” Mr Burden said. “It was delinquent talk, is the best way to describe it, but it was connected to the Roast Busters site.” Despite not seeing any criminality, Mr Burden suspected it was a copycat group and contacted police. They told him not to notify the families of the students in the group and would do it themselves if necessary. The page was closed down yesterday but it was unclear whether it was voluntary or if authorities stepped in. Mr Burden said it was gone shortly after the call to police was made yesterday morning. Detective Inspector Bruce Scott of Waitemata police, who was in charge of the Roast Busters case, said he was unaware of the page and didn’t believe it had been referred to his team. The Roast Busters have caused outrage after bragging in videos posted on its Facebook page about getting underage girls drunk and having sex with them. - APNZ

In brief

EQC’s performance ‘mixed’ By AdAm Bennett Problems highlighted by the Auditor-General in the way the Earthquake Commission had dealt with homeowners affected by the Canterbury earthquakes have already been identified and dealt with, the Government says. In a report on the commission’s management of the home repair programme, Auditor-General Lyn Provost said the EQC’s performance to date had been “mixed”.


“It has performed well in managing repair costs and setting the home-repair programme up quickly, but has not performed as well in dealing with homeowners.” Ms Provost highlighted a series of issues, including: ■ EQC was late in the programme before repair slots were actively allocated to the homes of vulnerable people; ■ Homeowners had experienced inconsistency in information and processes,

and long periods without specific information from EQC about their claim, leading to a lack of certainty while waiting for repairs; ■ Some homeowners had been dissatisfied, including dissatisfaction with the quality of repairs or the time taken to complete the repairs after work started; ■ Some important systems, controls and support functions should have been in place and fully effective sooner, including controls

to help manage risks to repair quality. But Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee said all of the problems raised by Ms Provost “have been identified a long time ago and have been part of a discussion and part of EQC’s desire to get things sorted out”. Mr Brownlee said some of the failing’s identified by the Auditor-General were understandable under the circumstances. - APNZ

Former Hello Sailor frontman Graham Brazier has been sentenced to intensive supervision and community work for assaulting his former and current partners. In September the 60-year-old admitted to twice assaulting his former fiancee. Brazier had previously denied attacking exgirlfriend Toni Aitcheson at his address in Auckland in August 2009, and again in July 2010. However, he pleaded guilty to one charge of assaulting a female and another of common assault. In the Auckland District Court yesterday Judge Grant Fraser sentenced Brazier to 100 hours’ community work and intensive supervision for 18 months. - APNZ

‘Groper’ pleads guilty The Christchurch man dubbed the “Port Hills Groper” pleaded guilty to eight indecent assault charges when he appeared in Christchurch District Court yesterday. Seven other charges against him were either withdrawn or dismissed. The 64-year-old man, who has name suppression, pleaded guilty through his defence counsel Moana Cole, Court News reported. He was accused of assaulting women running alone along the Rapaki and Mount Vernon tracks on the Port Hills south of the city. Judge Jane Farish remanded the man on bail until sentencing on January 15. - APNZ


Strange lights in the night sky Three people noticed strange sights in Monday night’s skies. Westerfield couple Velma and Russell Langdon went out to listen to the tree frogs in their wetland reserve about 9.45pm. Out to the east they noticed a very bright light. “At first we thought it was a plane, then a star,” Mrs Langdon said. They fetched a set of binoculars to examine the object in more detail. “It was very high, and appeared to have a blue light on the bottom and a red light on top – they weren’t bright lights,” she said. “It was hovering – wavering slightly to the left and right – it was much brighter than the stars, and it didn’t look like a satellite.” The Langdons frequently go outside at night to check on the rare tree frogs, but have never seen anything resembling the mystery object they saw on Monday. Meanwhile, Shane Martin saw a meteor while bringing in the cows for milking about 4am yesterday. He described it as a bright, white ball with a tail travelling from west to east. He watched it until it flashed and disappeared. If anyone else noticed unidentified flying objects this week contact Michelle Nelson by email – – or phone 307 7957.

More Aucklanders than ever were bitten, butted and bruised by dogs last year, says ACC, which has reported record levels of claims for dog-inflicted injuries in the Super City and elsewhere. Auckland Council, however, says it is too early to tell whether dog attacks are increasing. Aucklanders made 3730 ACC claims for bites and other dog-related injuries in the year to June, up almost 12 per cent on the year before and up 22 per cent in five years. - APNZ

Housing costs New Zealanders spend more of their income on housing than any other developed country in the OECD apart from heavily indebted Greece, a new report reveals. The report shows the cost of housing as a proportion of income in New Zealand is the second-highest in the OECD, with 26 per cent of the average household’s income going towards housing. - APNZ

Travelling to garden party in style By GABrielle StuArt

With all seats filled and boots packed with picnic baskets, the Ashburton Vintage Car Club escorted clients at the Park Street Day Care to their annual garden party in style yesterday.

The pensioners took the opportunity to enjoy the drive out to Lauriston for the annual picnic, taking the long route to get a bit of a tour of the district on the way. Alma Lochhead enjoyed feeling a little “fancy” on the day, as she rode in a vintage

1930s Chrysler. She said the car would have been built when she was about 10 years old, but she had not seen any cars like it until many years later. “This would have been far too posh for my family – we did not even have a car back then.”

New Zealand police say they have yet to receive information regarding four New Zealanders reportedly caught in an international sting offering to pay a 10-year-old girl for an online sex show. Dutch children’s rights organisation Terre des Hommes has identified 1000 adults who were willing to pay children in developing countries to perform sexual acts in front of a webcam. With the help of a computergenerated 10-year-old Filipino girl named Sweetie, the researchers identified adults from more than 65 countries, the group’s website said. The video footage of the child predators was handed over to Interpol yesterday. - APNZ

Cop-out on Roast Busters defies logic Michelle Nelson CHIEF REPORTER


evelations of a group of boys, calling themselves Roast Busters, who stupefied young girls to have group sex and bragged online, have shocked the country this week. Many people are questioning how this behaviour has gone unchecked for two years; vigilante action has been threatened – and little wonder! It has emerged up to 30 girls, some as young as 13, have been vilified by these low-lifes on a Facebook page set up for that very purpose. It is understood at least one of their victims has attempted suicide. Despite being aware of the content of this page since 2011, and having received an informal complaint, the police response has been lukewarm – they say without a formal complaint they are powerless to act. If this is the case surely the law needs to be changed? Sitting back and allowing it to go on is just not good enough. Murderers and the perpetrators of domestic and common assault can be prosecuted without their victims making formal complaints – why can’t people who ply girls with alcohol to pack-rape them, record their despicable acts and post them online be prosecuted? The evidence is all there in cyberspace, ready to be plucked and used in court. For the police to say they are powerless defies logic. I understood it was the role of the police to prevent crime – either this is criminal behaviour or it isn’t – the public reaction of thousands of people is sending a very clear message that the vast majority of us think it is. Rape is a crime; sex with a minor is a crime. Even Prime Minister John Key has condemned this gang. Facebook has erupted with pages calling for retribution. Anyone stupid enough to take the law into their own hands will certainly find themselves before a judge – let’s put these rapists in the dock before that happens.

YOUR VIEW Roast Busters In the justified outrage over these animals involved in the so-called Roast Busters let’s not overlook the fact that these girls were not just named and shamed; they were drugged, abused and raped as well. Where has the decency gone in society where young males – I refuse to dignify them with the term men – think that it is admirable to even act in this way to begin with. People like to decry conservatives for their abhorrence of sex education in schools, but when we look at the way society has gone since these social experiments were introduced, normalising sexual behaviour in children, it is the brainless ideologues that have stolen the


innocence of our kids that need to step up and take responsibility for their part in this. They can add that to the wonderful job micro-chipping has done in reducing vicious dog attacks. Good job all around. Peter Tashkoff

A weekend full of highlights

POLL RESULT Yesterday’s result Q: Should NZ keep the monarchy or become a republic?

Angus McKay



shburton is a vibrant, busy district and I had the privilege to attend a number of events this weekend that highlight the positive and diverse activities happening on a regular basis around the district. On Friday night Mary and I attended the Mid Canterbury Rugby Awards evening. After the exciting semi-final and final games in the previous two weeks, the awards evening wound up the season on a real high. While congratulations go to the Hammers for winning the Meads Cup, in behind them are all the supporters, volunteers, family members and officials who contribute so much to make the whole season happen. This is true of all our sports across the district. As pointed out on the night, there has been an increase of 400 under 20-year-olds involved in rugby in Mid Canterbury this year, despite national junior numbers declining. Involvement of our young people in activities of this kind can only be good for the district, keeping them active and busy in a positive way. Congratulations need to go to the current board of the Mid Canterbury Rugby Union for their drive and astute decision making. On Saturday I was one of many at the annual Ashburton A&P Show. This is another event that involves hours of volunteer work to make it all happen. It was a showcase of the agricultural diversity that makes this district an economic powerhouse in New Zealand. I saw a father and son who

Congratulations to the current board of the Mid Canterbury Rugby Union for their drive and astute decision making

had brought their soil preparation machinery all the way from the UK, a dog trial test match between New Zealand and Australia and watched the baby competition where the winner was an “Angus” (not me, but maybe a future mayor). With the weather at its best on Saturday it was a great day for all to enjoy. In my role as mayor, one of my many pleasant duties is to chair the Ashburton Civic Music Council which produces two music events each year for our community. On Sunday, Mary and I at-

tended Bands in the Park in the Ashburton Domain. This year featured the Salvation Army Band, Ashburton Silver Band, Electronic Organ and Keyboard Club and the Ashburton MSA Orchestra. This is a free, outdoor event in the beautiful setting of our domain and once again made possible because the musicians give of their time and share their skills. A bucket is taken round for a donation towards the expenses of the bands. You may not have heard of this event before, but look out for it next year

because it is a pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon. To complete the weekend, I attended the launch of Carolyn King’s Por Pors Cookbook (translated, in general terms, as “grandma’s cookbook”) at the Ashburton Public Library. Many of you may know Carolyn from her 38 years working at the Ashburton Hospital as a dietician. Earlier in the week, we had a citizenship ceremony for 24 new citizens of New Zealand and in this ceremony people were encouraged not to lose their cultural identity. In writing her book, Carolyn has not only handed down traditional Chinese recipes but also provided an insight into her Chinese culture and her proud family history. This has been a very positive weekend and just shows what this district and its people do every day of the week, every week of the year.

In brief

Soldiers convicted for mutiny A Bangladeshi court has convicted several hundred soldiers at the start of a mass verdict and sentencing over a 2009 military mutiny in which scores of officers were massacred. The first 200 soldiers were found guilty yesterday and sentenced to jail terms of up to 14 years for their role in the mutiny in which 74 people were hacked to death, tortured and burnt alive before their bodies were dumped in sewers and shallow graves. “The atrocities were so heinous that even the dead bodies were not given their rights,” Judge Mohammad Akhtaruz-

zaman told the packed court in the capital Dhaka as he started to read out the verdicts. Some 823 shackled soldiers were earlier crammed into the specially built courtroom, sitting silently on long rows of benches before sessions judge Akhtaruzzaman to hear the long-awaited verdict. Families of 10 of the officers slain in the mutiny were also in court. Prosecutors have sought the death penalty for many of the 823 soldiers who are charged with murder, torture, conspiracy and other offences over the 30-hour uprising that started at the Bangladeshi Rifles (BDR)

headquarters in Dhaka. An official probe into the mutiny blamed years of pent-up anger over ignored pleas for pay rises and improved treatment of the ordinary troops, who resented their better-paid superiors. Lead prosector Baharul Islam said the case was the largest of its type in the world with hundreds of witnesses taking part in the trial that started in January 2011 and finished in October this year. “So far as we know it’s the largest case in the world’s history. There were 654 prosecution witnesses,” Islam said

ahead of the verdict. During the uprising, the mutineers stole an estimated 2500 weapons and broke into an annual meeting of top BDR officers before shooting them at point blank range. The BDR’s head, Major General Shakil Ahmed, was among those killed. They also stormed Ahmed’s house on the base and killed his wife, domestic staff and guests. Nearly 6000 soldiers have already been convicted by dozens of special courts over the mutiny that spread to other BDR bases around the country and left 74 people including 57 top army officers dead. - AFP


Ohio kidnap survivor: I was tied, strung like fish One of three women held in a Cleveland man’s home for about a decade says an orange extension cord was used to tie her neck, hands and feet and hang her “like a fish,” according to pre-released clips from a taped interview that will air this week on the Dr Phil TV talk show. “I was tied up like a fish, an ornament on the wall,” Michelle Knight said in a clip released to media. “That’s the only way I can describe it.” “I was hanging like this,” she said, using her finger to draw a swooping U-shape curve in the air. In another interview clip posted on the show’s YouTube channel, Knight said she was told she’d be punished after she tried to pick a lock and escape. She also said her mouth was taped at one point so she wouldn’t yell. The show has said Knight discusses physical, mental and

Knight was kidnapped in August 2002, when she was 20. Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus escaped from Ariel Castro’s house on May 6

when Berry pushed out a door and called for help. Knight has been the most public of the kidnap victims since then, including a visit to Castro’s neighbourhood before his home was demolished. Berry and DeJesus plan to collaborate with a Pulitzer Prize-winning team of Washington Post reporters for a book about their ordeal. Castro, 53, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. Knight was the only victim to appear at Castro’s sentencing. She told him, “You took 11 years of my life away, but I’ve got my life back! I spent 11 years in hell. Now your hell is just beginning.” A month into his sentence, Castro was found dead in his cell. His hanging death was ruled a suicide, but a prison report indicated he may have died accidentally while choking himself for a sexual thrill. - AP


Bus murder suspect arrested Three people were killed when a man armed with a knife hijacked a bus in western Norway, according to police, who have arrested a suspect they say comes from South Sudan. Police commissioner Ronny Iden told reporters the suspect, a 31-year-old man, lived in Aardal, a small town near the scene of the attack. The victims were two men in their 50s - the bus driver and a Swedish passenger and a 19-year-old woman, police said, adding that they were the only ones on the bus besides the suspect. The suspect also suffered knife wounds and was currently hospitalised in Bergen, Norway’s second largest city, he added. The motives for the attack were not im-

mediately clear. The alleged attacker was overpowered by firefighters who rushed to the scene of what they initially believed was a traffic accident, police said. The long-distance bus was on the route between the mountainous Valdres region, a popular area for skiing, and the Norwegian capital Oslo. The nearest police station was about 89km from the deadly attack and first officers arrived at the scene about an hour after the alert was given. Nothing suggests that the alleged perpetrator and the victims knew each other, police said, adding that police criminal investigators were coming from Oslo to help with the inquiry. - AFP

Axe v thief Police say a Southern California woman can throw a mean axe — and she used one to chase a burglar from her house. Hemet police say the woman called the emergency police dispatcher on Saturday morning and said she’d been awakened by a man trying to remove her watch from her wrist. The woman told police she’s a tomahawk-throwing champion, and she quickly grabbed a throwing axe and chased the man out of the apartment. Police searched the area and found a man hiding behind some nearby bushes, along with property belonging to the woman. Twentytwo-year-old Nicholas Ulloa was arrested on suspicion of burglary. - AP

Blast severs hand Two men have been charged with making a homemade explosive that detonated and severed a man’s hand. The 28-year-old is in a serious but stable condition after the explosion near Cowra in central-western NSW on Monday, police say. His left hand was severed in the blast. Police say a second device was found at Jindalee Circuit in Cowra, and was secured by bomb squad officers. Two men, aged 29 and 32, have been charged with making the explosive. They were granted bail to appear before Cowra Local Court today. - AAP

Drug charges Schapelle Corby’s half-brother will plead guilty to cocaine possession charges, his lawyer says. James Soeli Kisina appeared via video link in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court, south of Brisbane, yesterday. His lawyer Tamara Lawton asked for an adjournment until next Tuesday, saying her client would plead guilty. The 26-year-old was charged with possession of a dangerous drug and obstructing police after being arrested at Waterford, near the southern Brisbane suburb of Logan, on October 26. Kisina was remanded in custody. He was with Corby when she was caught attempting to smuggle more than 4kg of marijuana into Bali in a bodyboard bag on October 8, 2004. - AAP

Murder charge A man has been charged with murdering his partner as her children slept in a Melbourne home. The 31-year-old woman was found stabbed to death at a house in Noble Park. Bona Lual, 36, dialled triple-zero before handing himself into police early yesterday. Police say Lual and the woman were at a party at a Dandenong North hall on Monday night. Detective Senior Sergeant Steve McIntyre said the woman’s four children, aged between two and 12, were in the house at the time of the incident. “The children have been taken back to the Dandenong police station, we’ve got the Department of Human Services and some family involved,” he said. They haven’t indicated that they’ve seen anything.” Lual, of Doveton, was charged with murder and faced an out-of-sessions hearing yesterday. He was remanded in custody to face the Melbourne Magistrates Court today. - AAP

cash every year to invest and we simply will not be able to borrow the sums of money we need to make up to a $3 billion investment in UFB,” he said. “We are intensely disappointed with today’s decision. We are proud of our role as a cornerstone partner in delivering the Government’s vision to build a fibre future for New Zealand ... but unless the Government intervenes, it is likely that the benefits for New Zealand will be significantly compromised,” Ratcliffe said. Communications and Information Technology Minister Amy Adams, who is spearheading the proposed intervention, issued a short statement yesteday, saying the Government will now “consider its options” before making any further decision. But opponents to intervention, who said the Government’s proposed copper prices would be a “tax” on consumers, have called on it to step down. CallPlus and Slingshot boss Mark Callander said as far as his companies were concerned the commission had “done its job”. “The Government should not intervene any further. Kiwis will benefit from these savings, Slingshot has already made a commitment that it will pass savings to consumers.” - APNZ

Infrastructure company Chorus says an internet price cut from the Commerce Commission yesterday means it won’t be able to borrow what it needs to invest $3 billion in building the ultrafast broadband network - unless the Government intervenes. Chorus said that as a consequence of the Commission’s decision it would need to discuss with the Crown on whether the company is still a “credible UFB partner” in the way intended in 2011 and also it might deliver the balance of the [UFB] programme despite the very material funding gap”. Chorus is building the majority of the Government’s ultrafast broadband network, which will deliver much quicker internet to 75 per cent of New Zealand by 2020. The company, which split from Telecom in 2011, still makes the majority of its revenue from the old copper-line network which it charges internet retailers like Vodafone and Orcon to access. The commission regulates these wholesale broadband prices and yesterday released its final decision on what Chorus’ can charge. The monthly wholesale price per line the commission decided

was $34.44, a cut of 23 per cent. This is slightly shallower than the $32.45 per month price the regulator announced in a draft decision last December, which was a cut of almost 28 per cent on the $44.98 Chorus charges now. The final price is, however, well outside the Government’s proposed range for copper broadband prices of $37.50 to $42.50. Yesterday’s decision follows months of controversy after Chorus expressed distress at the Commission’s draft ruling and the Government signalled it would intervene in the regulatory process. Chorus has renewed calls for the Government to intervene and said the Commission’s decision would hit its earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (ebitda) by $142 million each year. The company said the decision would see a $1 billion funding shortfall the company by 2020, when the ultra-fast broadband network is completed. “Without the proposed Government intervention, the loss of these revenues would have two very negative consequences for Chorus’ funding ability,” Chorus chief executive Mark Ratcliffe said. “We would have much less

Experiencing tastes of Asia


sian style cooking is now very much a part of home dining in many Kiwi homes. We’re now spoiled for choice in New Zealand when it comes to trying food from other cuisines and as we become familiar with different tastes and cooking styles, most home cooks are keen to try their hand at some of these dishes themselves. Recipe books abound to provide a step-by-step introduction to cooking in a different style and in many cases, recipes have been adapted to Kiwi palates and sometimes use Kiwi substitutes for hard-to-find ingredients. That might remove some of the authenticity, but not the taste.

In brief Frosty a warm-up The multisport season opened at the weekend with the 2013 Frostbuster. The multisport race, an 8.5km run through Awa Awa Rata reserve followed by a 32km cycle to the RDR for a 9km paddle in the kayak, was won by Adam Milne in 2 hours 15.05 minutes. The duathlon race cut out the kayak leg but added in a bonus 2km run instead and was taken out by Sam Bell in 1hr 33.26mins, and for a second year there was an 8.5km run. The Frostbuster event is run by the Methven based Multisport Events and their next race is the big one, the Big Day at the Office on November 30, where Coast to Coast hopefuls get a chance to see where they are at two months out from the biggest race of them all, and novices can sink their teeth into a longer multisport event.

Cook under pressure England skipper Alastair Cook says it’s his batting and not his captaincy which should be most under pressure this Ashes series. Cook admitted the latest wave of scathing criticism from Shane Warne had raised his “blood pressure”, but ultimately he was comfortable with a record of just one loss from 16 matches since being appointed skipper. He was also unconcerned at being labelled unimaginative as a captain by Warne as he prepared to return from a back complaint and lead England against Australia A in Hobart from today. “I keep saying it, it’s all about results,” he said. - AAP

Celtic chases last 16 Emilio Izaguirre says Celtic will go all out for victory against Ajax in Amsterdam tonight to boost their chances of reaching the last 16 of the Champions League. The Hoops picked up their first points of Group H a fortnight ago when they defeated the Dutch champions 2-1 in Glasgow. Now the Scottish champions face Frank de Boer’s side in the Amsterdam ArenA knowing a win would put them in a great position to challenge AC Milan and Barcelona for a place in the last 16 of Europe’s elite competition. “It was a big win for us against Ajax as we have a very hard group with three big teams,” Izaguirre said. - AFP

College teams among the medals BY JONATHAN LEASK


The Ashburton College rowing squad opened their competitive season at the Aoraki 1000 regatta at Lake Ruataniwha at the weekend. The college crews competed well, making plenty of A finals in their first official race meeting of the season, and even picked up some wins. The men’s open coxed four of Mark Tait, Matthew Rae, Adam Hodge, Lachie Davidson and cox Jeffery Cooke were first in their A final, the men’s under

16s coxed four of Benji Barry, Rae, Matthew Beveridge, Davidson and cox Matthew Parker also had a win while another four the women’s novice four of Jordyn Kell, Grace Wilson, Veronica Wall, Danan LoganLeach and Cooke won their A final. Georgia Lysaght also won the women’s under 16 single. There were second place finishes in A finals for Adam Hodge in the men’s single, the women’s half-novice four of Fran Connelly-Whyte, Olivia Fleming, Grace Wilson, Jemma

Rotch and Parker, Rae and Beveridge in the men’s open pair. Seven crews also managed third place finishes in A finals. Other Ashburton rowers were also competing with Charlotte Cox winning the masters women’s single scull A final and she combined with her daughter Veronica to win the women’s half-novice double. The college crew’s next outing is at home on Lake Hood this Sunday with a Canterbury pennants regatta before the annual Ashburton Rowing Regatta on November 1.

Promising youngster makes All Whites Attacking trio Shane Smeltz, Chris Wood and Marco Rojas have returned to the All Whites squad to face Mexico in the FIFA World Cup intercontinental playoff later this month, while Storm Roux is the surprise inclusion in the 23-man squad. All three players missed the October friendly with Trinidad and Tobago due to injury but are a good chance to start the away leg in Mexico City next Wednesday.

Roux, playing in the fullback position, has risen quickly through the ranks after representing New Zealand at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey earlier this year with the 20-year-old having started all four matches of the new ALeague season for the Central Coast Mariners after making the switch from Perth Glory. All Whites coach Ricki Herbert said Roux’s inclusion is reward for a player who has quickly found his feet at the top level.

Kirwan captures Cavill Memorial

“Storm is playing in the ALeague for a side that has done exceptionally well in the competition,” Herbert said. “He’s come into the team who are the competition champions and secured a starting spot. “I’ve watched him play a number of times and Graham Arnold [Central Coast Mariners coach] speaks highly of him.” Herbert says Roux’s individual strengths will serve the All Whites well in several areas. “He’s athletically a player

who can get forward and he will put pressure on the likes of Tony Lochhead and Leo Bertos because he’s able to play down both sides. I’ve also been impressed with his one-on-one defending as well.” Herbert says Smeltz, Wood and Rojas are all key members of the squad. “It’s great to be able to include those players who have long been an integral part of what we’ve done,” Herbert said. - HOL

After a quiet start to the season, Richard Kirwan hit his straps taking out the Tinwald Cycling’s Club’s 40km handicap in Chertsey on Sunday. More than 60 riders took to the roads of Chertsey and it was a frantic finish as the first nine riders finished within two seconds of each other, but it was Kirwan who hit the line first to lift the Brian Cavill Memorial Trophy. Martin Hyde was caught in the shadow of the line by Kirwan to take second place. Christchurch visitor Connor Stead set the fastest time from fellow scratch markers Tony Ward and Michael Templeton, riding the distance in 57.11 minutes. A solid field of juniors and division 2 riders took on a 14km handicap race. Ben Sutton stormed through the field with his co-marker to take the win and set the fastest time, but his co-marker Isabella Smith didn’t go down without a fight, getting pipped on the line to take second. Renee Gage charged into first in division 2 and Barry Linwood rode a solid race to take second. Next week the club travels to Methven to contest a 45km handicap event.

Rugby briefs Argentina Argentina captain Juan Manuel Leguizamon insists the Pumas will enter Saturday’s test match against England with a united squad. Leguizamon denies there is a rift in the camp that resulted in the resignation of coach Santiago Phelan, who objected to information being leaked to the media. Daniel Hourcade has been appointed as his successor. Argentina finished bottom of the Rugby Championship and have lost star players Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe and Juan Martin Hernandez to the treatment room, but Leguizamon has promised they will be ready for their Twickenham appointment.

Australia The battling Wallabies forwards must put their European rugby tour back on track against Italy without their most abrasive ruck warrior, Scott Fardy. Fardy has been ruled out this weekend after he suffered a heavy head knock in the 20-13 loss to England. The aggressive blind-side flanker may have been cleared to play but coach Ewen McKenzie has been quick to rest him and get on with preparations. It’s a genuine blow for the Wallabies as Fardy has been one of their most consistent and dynamic forwards since starting against the All Blacks in late August, and Italy play a highly-physical game.

By Jonathan Leask

Mid Canterbury’s Heartland trio had plenty to smile about after helping the New Zealand Heartland XV to a 60-34 win over the New Zealand Defence Force in Methven yesterday. Dwayne Burrows, Jon Dampney, and Will Mackenzie all started for the Heartland XV, featuring heavily in the eighttries to five win. Burrows and Mackenzie made their debut, after sharing their blazer game in the Meads Cup

final win a fortnight ago, but it was Dampney’s fifth year in the Heartland XV and the rangy loose forward was prominent on attack in the early stages. The Mid Canterbury captain made a strong run through the mid-field before putting East Coast winger Whaimoto-CraftChemis in for the first of his two tries in the 14th minute. After a run up the side-line from Burrows, Mackenzie hit a charging Dampney one-off the ruck and he ran the 50m to the try-line, beating two despairing

cover defenders in the process. Burrows also proved a handful every time he got his hands on the ball, and delivered one when the match was in the balance. At 34-all following a fourtry comeback from the Defence Force he made a big bust through several tackle attempts and put replacement Wanganui flanker Lasa Ulukuta away for the go-ahead try. Five minutes later following another try from the Heartland XV, Burrows went over for a try of his own.

Mackenzie was running the show behind a forward pack that was constantly tested at the breakdown by a physical Defence Force side, and the fact both teams were in black didn’t help at ruck time or from broken play. All three will available for selection for the side’s second and final match against the New Zealand Marist XV in Timaru on Saturday where they will come up against their bighitting Mid Canterbury teammate Tukulua Tolu.

Pressure on Carter to perform By GreGor PauL Dan Carter is the likely starting No10 for the All Blacks this Saturday, but it’s his need for game time that is keeping him in front of Aaron Cruden for now. With 55 minutes under his belt in Japan, Carter is ready to go up a level against France and he’ll need to.

The selectors may view the England test as the one where all secondary objectives are put on hold. It won’t matter who needs game time, development is not relevant: it will be a blood and snotters game, a chance for revenge and the only thing that will matter is winning. On that basis, Carter will have to do enough in Paris to

convince he’s still the number one choice. He’ll need to be more commanding than he was in Tokyo - more threatening with the ball and prepared to attack the line. Everyone knows he can do it. Everyone knows he’s a talent like no other but in this injuryravaged season, he’ll need to provide a reminder of all that.

It’s been a long time since the nation was treated to vintage Carter. What was unthinkable even 12 months ago may now be a reality, that the days of Carter being the automatic selection at first-five are possibly over. Not for ever, but certainly on this tour he is going to need to deliver compelling rugby to keep in front of Cruden. - HOS

Scotland suffered the ignominy of defeat to minnows Tonga 12 months ago – and are determined to ensure there is no repeat against Japan. The Dark Blues open their Autumn Test series with Saturday’s Murrayfield clash against the Brave Blossoms before also hosting South Africa and Australia. They head into the opener in much better shape than they did for the meeting with Tonga last November. Having lost to both New Zealand and the Springboks, former boss Andy Robinson was forced to resign after the match with the South Sea Islanders, when the Scots went down to a shock 21-15 defeat. Since then, the side have been buoyed by a third-place finish at last year’s 6 Nations and decent displays during their tour to South Africa.

Wales Wales are braced for a “glad-iatorial” test match when they open their autumn international series against South Africa. Saturday will be the countries’ first meeting since a gripping 2011 World Cup pool game in Wellington that South Africa edged 17-16. Wales subsequently went on to reach the World Cup semi-finals and land successive 6 Nations titles, but they have only beaten the Springboks once in 26 meetings stretching back 107 years. Coach Warren Gatland was set to name his team today.

Ireland Keith Earls has been ruled out of Ireland’s opening international against Samoa in Dublin with a knee injury. The versatile back has patella tendonitis, but Lions quintet Brian O’Driscoll, Paul O’Connell, Sean O’Brien, Cian Healy and Rory Best are all expected to be available on Saturday for new coach Joe Schmidt’s first match in charge of the national side. Schmidt, a New Zealander, has so far refused to say who will captain the side with O’Driscoll, O’Connell, and probably Jamie Heaslip in the mix.

M3 Waikato gallops


No secrets about Paeroa form Dependable five-year-old Secret Whisper looks well-placed at Paeroa today to post an elusive victory. The gelding can’t be faulted on the score of effort and has only missed a cheque once from his last eight appearances. Few could begrudge him the thickest end of the stake this time in the Kevin Gould Electrical 1670. Secret Whisper, which has form on a variety of track conditions, finished third to the capable Breaking Dawn two runs back and last time out he filled a similar placing behind another progressive type in Atacama. Stable apprentice Michael Dee was aboard on both occasions and he takes the mount again at Paeroa. His two kilo claim could be

crucial as it gives Secret Whisper a two and a-half kilo pull in the weights on Elusive Gold. To be ridden by Opie Bosson, Elusive Gold finished strongly for third behind Sultry Assassin, which will chase black type at Riccarton at her next appearance, over 1400 metres at Te Awamutu. He should appreciate the extra trip today and with Our Kingpin, an eye-catching fourth when resuming at Tauranga, he gives trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman a strong hand. Our Kingpin was run down late in the piece and Chevremont’s effort for sixth in the same event was also sound. She found the line well from the back and is another likely to improve with the outing. - APNZ

Ashburton Guardian 19

In brief Boninsky in form Boninsky showed he was on target for a second crack at the Gr.2 DHL Counties Cup later this month with a strong performance to win at Ellerslie yesterday. “He was close up in it last year so we’d like to have another go,” Cambridge trainer Margaret Falconer said. Sixth and only a length off the winner in the Pukekohe feature in 2012, Boninsky has consistently raced well in good company and his win in the Carbine Club Trophy was the fourth of his career. “He’s going well and was a bit unlucky at his last start, he’s coming up really well,” Falconer said. Boninsky was ridden by Michael Dee and they finished strongly to relegate Neo to second.

Eagle about to fly the coop By Sue NewmaN

If Fly Like an Eagle wins the New Zealand Trotting Cup it will be a bitter sweet moment for Ashburton man Gavin Douglas. While winning the cup is the ultimate success for any harness racing owner, if your horse has just been sold to American interests, then a cup win is a reminder of the future earnings that could have been, Mr Douglas said. He’s a part owner in the fiveyear-old entire and admits he reluctantly signed the deal that will see his star pacer head for the states after the cup (via the Miracle Mile in Australia) to race and ultimately to stand at stud. Douglas was a reluctant seller. When the offers started coming in, he said he had two op-

tions – buy his partners out or sell. “I’ve always loved the horse but he’ll get some good chances out there – if he measures up. He’s still a stallion and they’re hoping to breed. “Once Cup Day is finished our share is gone,” he said. Taking a pragmatic approach to Fly Like an Eagle, Douglas said the $630,000 he’s earned plus his sale price has been a great pay back for the $30,000 paid for the horse as a youngster. The but is, if he wins the cup – what would his worth be then? “He was a great little buy. I guess we’ve been realistic. “We’ve sold a lot of our horses. “We sold Major Mark and he was a cup horse but this horse for me has been special. “He’s been the best I’ve had

and maybe the best I’ll ever have so this is why I was keen to keep him.” Last year he ran seventh in the cup but as a four-year-old, he was a baby in the field. This year it will be different, Douglas said. “He did his hard yards last year. He was a boy in a man’s race.” Fly Like an Eagle had a shakeup at Ashburton on October 28 in the Ashburton Cup when a rein came loose and driver Mark Purdon had to manoeuvre him off track and bring him under control. For a stallion that could have been enough to spook the horse for his next start, Douglas said. It didn’t. Fly Like an Eagle went out one week later and won with a start to finish lead in the Kaikoura Cup. If he gets a similar run in the

cup Douglas reckons he’ll be up there with the two he tips as standouts, Terror to Love and Christen Me. Post sale he says he’ll still retain an interest in the horse. Douglas admits he’s been lucky with most of his purchases, but he keeps reminding himself that luck is the key word. Fly Like an Eagle might have been a cheap buy that came good, but he knows there’s a hack out there in a trekking stable that cost him a whole lot more and never earned a cent. “We’ve been lucky, we’ve won 10 Group One races. “People go a whole lifetime and never get a horse into Group One.” Cup day he’ll be there with the crowds and while he’s not a big better, Douglas said he’ll put a few dollars on his horse ‘as an act of faith’.


Punters lash out on Melbourne Cup The New Zealand connection may have been small in the 2013 Melbourne Cup, but the interest from punters was as high as ever. New Zealander punters bet $NZ9.3 million ($A8.18 million) on the race that stops two nations, up one per cent on the $NZ8.62 million ($A7.59 mil-

lion) spent on the race last year. But NZ TAB head of betting Michael Dore says it could have been more, had it not been for a website glitch just before the race. Dore told AAP a problem hit the TAB’s website about 4.15pm, but it was resolved by 4.45pm - about 20 minutes before the start of the race.

There were no New Zealandtrained Melbourne Cup runners for a third consecutive year, but this year - for the first time since at least the 1940s - there were no New Zealand-bred runners. That left the strongest New Zealand connections via trainers and jockeys. Three horses were prepared

by ex-NZ trainers: Hawkspur and Foreteller by former Foxton trainer Chris Waller, and Voleuse De Coeurs by Mike Moroney. Voleuse De Coeurs (10th) and Hawkspur (20th) also had Kiwi jockeys - Hawkspur ridden by Jim Cassidy, and Voleuse De Coeurs by 21-yearold James McDonald. - AAP

TAB bookmakers reacted sharply to the late nomination of Final Touch for the Coupland’s Bakeries Mile and with good reason following her win at Wingatui yesterday. The multiple Group One winner is a $4 favourite for the Group Two feature at Riccarton ahead of Scapolo at $6 with Tyne Cot and Coup Aye Tee at $8. The only other horse with a single figure quote at $9 is Ringo. In the hands of her regular rider Chris Johnson, the Kashani mare lumped 61.5kg to victory at Wingatui in her first appearance since minor Group One placings in the first two legs of the Hawke’s Bay Triple Crown series.

Reward for consistency Consistent galloper The Flying Affair took advantage of a drop back in class to collect a deserved victory at Ellerslie. The five-yearold had finished fifth in the Listed Rotorua Plate at his previous appearance and came home with a well-timed run for apprentice Rowena Smyth to score yesterday. Last season’s Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks winner More Than Sacred ran second and had her chance while topweight Storming The Tower was a brave third under his 59kg. The Flying Affair has been a genuine character for his connections with five wins and 15 placings from 33 appearances.

Girl still unbeaten Red Dirt Girl’s perfect record has remained intact after a successful visit to racing’s northern headquarters. The four-year-old was a runaway maiden winner at Paeroa and she took a step up in grade in her stride at Ellerslie on Melbourne Cup day to down her Rating 65 rivals. A daughter of Align, Red Dirt Girl is prepared at Te Rapa by her part-owner Kristine Stead, who was responsible for one of the great feature race upsets at Ellerslie when she won the 2009 Gr.1 Railway Handicap with 100-1 outsider Jacowils.

Home track advantage Delecta Dreims posted an overdue success at Otaki when she accounted for a handy line-up on her home track yesterday for trainer Karen Zimmerman. The six-yearold added the Rating 85 Raukawa Cup under rider Kelly Myers to record the fourth win of her career. Her last had come at Trentham a little over a year ago and she has raced consistently in the meantime, having weighed in eight times from 10 subsequent starts.


Wednesday, November 6, 2013 SITUATIONS VACANT


Fiorente wins for Waterhouse Gai Waterhouse’s controversial year ended in triumph with Fiorente giving the Sydney trainer her first Melbourne Cup win. Fiorente’s win in front of 100,000 racegoers at Flemington yesterday, sealed Waterhouse’s standing as one of Australia’s greatest horse trainers. It also gave Damien Oliver his third Melbourne Cup, two months after he returned to racing from serving a ban for betting on a rival horse in a race he was riding in in 2010. Fiorente staged a thrilling duel with Red Cadeaux before gaining the upperhand at the 100m. Mount Athos finished third. Waterhouse’s victory came after twice training the runner-up, Te Akau Nick in 1993 and Fiorente in last year’s race. It also confirmed Waterhouse as one of the most resilient figures in Australian racing. She has been in the headlines since a public fall-out with high profile owner John Singleton and an ongoing battle with Sydney racing stewards. Waterhouse trained most of Singleton’s racehorses until glamour mare More Joyous was beaten in the All Aged Stakes during the Sydney autumn racing carnival. Singleton claimed Waterhouse’s son, the bookmaker Tom Waterhouse, had

told rugby league star Andrew Johns that More Joyous couldn’t win the All Aged before the mare ran unplaced in the race. Oliver, who had previously won the race on Doriemus and Media Puzzle, brought Fiorente from midfield to stake his challenge at the 300m. He said it was a privilege to win the race for Waterhouse. “It’s amazing, it’s a dream come true,” he said. “I’m so rapt that I could be part of Gai’s first one. She’s done so much for racing and it’s a great honour for me to help bring home her first one. “Gai was one of the first people to get behind me when I came back and I can’t thank her enough for helping me get going again and we have been a great team together.” Meanwhile, two years after the high of a Melbourne Cup win, French jockey Christophe Lemaire hit rock bottom in a tragic end to his dream of a second Cup. Lemaire won on Dunaden in 2011 and went into yesterday’s renewal confident he could repeat the result on the Aga Khan’s mare Verema. But the horse fractured a cannon bone at the 2000m mark and could not be saved. “She was on the bridle travelling well alongside the future winner, we were in a good position, but these kinds of things just happen,” said Lemaire. - AAP RACE 7 - EMIRATES MELBOURNE CUP, $6,200,000, 3200m 1-1 Fiorente (6) D Oliver 1 19-19 Red Cadeaux (3) G Mosse 2 4-4 Mount Athos (15) C Williams 3 All Started.

Big finish gets Heartland XV home BY JONATHAN LEASK


The Heartland XV started strongly, stuttered and then finished with a flurry to beat the New Zealand Defence Force 60-34 in a high-scoring game in Methven yesterday. The Heartland XV, made up of a selection of players from the Heartland Rugby Championship including Mid Canterbury’s Jon Dampney, Will Mackenzie and Dwayne Burrows, ran out to a

big early lead only to be hauled in by the Defence Force midway through the game with the scores drawn at 34-all. With the match in the balance the Heartland XV turned it on again, running in four unanswered tries to seal the win. The Defence Force scored first with a penalty before the Heartland XV ran in three tries in quick succession to East Coast flanker Riki Waitoa, North Otago prop Ralph Darling and East

Coast wing Whaimoto CraftChemis. West Coast first-five Tim Priest converted all three tries and landed a penalty for a 24-3 lead after 23 minutes. The Defence Force hit back with a converted try before Mid Canterbury loose forward Jon Dampney made a 50m run to score and Priest converted to take it out to 31-10. As a blow-out looked to be on the cards, the Defence Force scored two tries before halftime

to close it back to 20-31, and continued the momentum in the second half with another two tries to level the scores at 34-all, after Priest landed his second penalty for the Heartland XV. With 20 minutes left on the clock the game looked to be slipping away from the Heartland XV before they rediscovered the energy of the opening 20 minutes to run in four unanswered tries. Wanganui flanker Lasa Ulu-

kuta went over for the go-ahead try followed up by tries to East Coast centre TK Moeke’s, Mid Canterbury wing Dwayne Burrows and Craft-Chemis grabbed a brace with the final try, and Wairarapa Bush’s Glen Walters landed three of the conversions. The Heartland XV have their second and final internal tour match against the New Zealand Marist XV in Timaru on Saturday.
