Urgency needed on domain BY SUE NEWMAN


The entrance to the Ashburton Domain is on the move. When traffic lights are installed at the intersection of West Street and Walnut Avenue, the entrance will clash with traffic queues and the New Zealand Transport Agency wants it relocated. But deciding where that should be has Ashburton District councillors scratching their heads; making that decision without significant public input could be a recipe for disaster. they decided. At yesterday’s council meeting, NZTA representatives told councillors they wanted to move quickly and they asked the council to sign off its preferred option for access as a new entrance from Walnut Avenue. Councillors were happy to give the land designation request the nod, but were not so keen to sign up to a preferred entrance point. However, by failing to indicate they knew where the existing entrance had to go, the designa-

tion process could be held up, councillor John Leadley said. “We need to do everything we can to hasten these West Street lights. We’re more likely to get this notice of requirement if we indicate we’re looking at change.” When the transport agency held an open day on the planned changes at the Walnut Avenue intersection only 40 people turned up. And when it came to public feedback the results were even worse – just 14 comment sheets were returned. Out of those, half were in favour of a new entrance to the domain from Walnut Avenue, west of the children’s paddling pool. There had to be further public consulation, said councillor Darryl Nelson. “I’m concerned if we don’t do that, when the digger moves onto the domain we’ll have a protest ... at the 11th hour. We can’t decide until we have ... more feedback.”

5 BITES 1 Smoking prisoners ruin TVs



Beware the ball-cutter fish

Five things that may interest you


Prisoners using electrical cords to spark up cigarettes in a north Queensland jail have damaged more than 500 televisions. The state government says 425 TVs have been replaced and another 131 repaired at Lotus Glen Correctional Centre, near Cairns, over the past year. Prisoners are allowed to smoke in designated areas of state jails but not in their cells due to the risk of fires, which is why inmates have been stripping TV wires to light up. A spokesman said the government would look at a range of ways to protect prison TVs.

All public Twitter posts indexed A San Francisco startup says it has indexed all public Twitter posts dating back to the first ‘tweet’ ever fired off seven years ago. Topsy is making the compendium of tweets available to marketers, businesses and others to “extract meaningful signals from the social media noise”. The analytics firm says it offers “the entire history of public tweets on Twitter, dating back to the first-ever tweet by Jack Dorsey in March 2006”. Topsy claims its tools provide analyses of “hundreds of billions” of tweets and web pages.




The Pacu, a fish dubbed the ‘ball-cutter’ because it has reportedly bitten off men’s testicles, has been found in Paris and there are fears it could be making its way to the UK. The small piranha-like fish was found in European waters for the first time in August with experts warning men to keep their trunks on if swimming in the Øresund channel between Denmark and Sweden. Now the pacu has been found in the River Seine. Its human-like teeth marked the species as the feared ‘testicle eating’ pacu.

5 Chickens head to retirement

Mexico City mulls legal marijuana ‘clubs’

Their egg-laying days behind them, some 1200 Northern California chickens are heading for a cozy retirement on the East Coast, where they will live outside of cages and have plenty of room to spread their wings. An anonymous $50,000 donation is funding Operation Chicken Airlift, which will send the hens on a cross-country cargo flight to upstate New York. From there the white Leghorn chickens will be ferried to different sanctuaries. Laying hens are generally too lean for human consumption and are usually slaughtered after they stop providing eggs.

The Mexico City council is considering the legalisation of cannabis plants and the creation of private marijuana smoking “clubs” as it mulls controversial legislation to liberalise consumption. The US states of Washington and Colorado voted to legalise the recreational use of marijuana last year, a move that shocked the Mexican government as it faces cartel violence that has left more than 70,000 people dead in the past seven years.

Mum relieved to have son home By SuSan SandyS

Mount Hutt College pupil Josh Burrowes could not wait to go snowboarding when it was the school’s annual ski trip on Wednesday. The 11-year-old undertakes a weekly ski option at the school, meaning he gets to go to Mt Hutt every Wednesday, however he had not been up the previous three weeks in a row due to the trips being cancelled. This time the weather was bad once again, but the mountain was open and the ski trip was given the all clear by school management. Josh was looking forward to snowboarding with his friends, one of whom had never been to Mt Hutt before. But face-numbing white-out weather conditions set in midmorning and he and his friends actually got lost on Highway 72. They had to take off their skis and snowboards and slide down the mountain on their tummies, helped by older students. Students were herded to their school buses in preparation for exiting the mountain, but then around midday the access road was closed due to poor visibility and snow drifts. Meanwhile, Josh’s mum was at work, at Tiddlywinks Preschool in Ashburton. She had got a text from Josh when he was on the bus, saying they would be heading down from the mountain soon. But half an hour later she got a text from the school saying the access road was closed and a decision would be made at 8pm on whether to exit the mountain. “I had a mild panic attack, I thought what do you mean the road is closed and you will make

a decision at 8pm?” “It’s a bit of a daunting idea your child stuck on a mountain,” Mrs Burrowes said. She phoned Josh, by this time in the skifield café with all the other students, to see how he was. “It was quite reassuring to hear his voice and he was safe and warm. “When I rang Josh you could hear the kids laughing in the background, it just sounded like a big party.”

Later that night however, teachers’ and students’ hopes of getting off the skifield before midnight were dashed by strong winds, and they had to bunk down for the night. It was an emotional time in the ski area café as students said goodnight to their parents on their cellphones, or their friends’ phones if their’s had run out of battery. “I missed my mum and dad,” Josh recalled yesterday as he rested at his Mitcham home,

where he lives with his mum, dad Darryl and little sister Ella. He said he had managed to get about two hours’ sleep before everyone was awoken about 1am. It was a long and slow journey down, as the bus stopped several times in icy conditions. Mrs Burrowes said she ran to her son and hugged him after finally spotting him amongst a group of children who had alighted from the bus in Methven, after waiting at the school

grounds in the early hours of the morning. Buses arrived back at the school around 4am, and students and teachers stayed home yesterday to recover. Mrs Burrowes said she held no blame towards the skifield or school. “They were amazing, they looked after the kids so well.” Josh sums up his whole ordeal as “very tiring”, and thinks he might restrict future trips to Mt Hutt to fine days.

Mount Hutt College to review ski day procedures By Sue newman

Students may have been trapped on the mountain, but Mt Hutt ski staff made sure they were well fed and looked after.

Mount Hutt College will review its ski day procedures after about 270 students were trapped on Mt Hutt on Wednesday night. The school stands by its decision to take the students up the mountain for their annual ski trip on Wednesday, and principal John Schreurs said that decision was based on the practice of following advice from Mt Hutt staff – if the mountain was skiable school groups would go. “If the mountain is open we go, if there’s a delay, we don’t,” he said. However, in the wake of the road closure that kept students on the mountain until about 3am, Mr Schreurs said the school would review that practice and look at how it could do things differently.

While some parents were concerned that their children would be driven down the mountain in the early hours of the morning, that was often the time when there was good visibility, he said. “Safety for everyone was paramount and they said there was a small window of opportunity between 3am and 5am when the wind was down.” There had been a good communication flow between Mt Hutt staff, the school and parents and while some parents were concerned that the school continued with its ski trip that day, Mr Schreurs said he was confident student safety had never been compromised. “Mt Hutt staff were really good with our students, we’re really pleased with what they did up there. Yes, parents were concerned, and quite rightly when their children were supposed to be home and they weren’t.”

Demolition date for library By SuSan SandyS

Methven Public Library committee members are planning to demolish the building next Saturday (September 14). Chairperson Eleanor Marr said yesterday that this Saturday a nearby hedge would be removed, and archaeologists would be on site today, in preparation. The demolition date had been pencilled in after determining that contractors who had offered to help, and the archaeologists, would both be available on that day. The library was closed after the 2010 September 4 earthquake caused extensive damage to it. “It’s been a long three years waiting to get something done, yes there’s a tinge of sadness for a lot of people because they have liked looking at the building, but we need to look forward now,” Mrs Marr said. The Guardian understands the Methven Historical Society will be demolished the same day, however the society could not be contacted to confirm this. Both the library and histori-

Richard Davis, 53, of Katikati, is being tried in the High Court at Wellington on 11 counts of unlawful sexual connection and 13 counts of indecent assault in relation to patients at his Gisborne practice. The charges were brought after 10 female patients alleged Davis touched them inappropriately and performed invasive acts in a sexual manner during

treatment. The Crown claims Davis’ touching was deliberate and sexual. The defence claims he was using legitimate osteopathic techniques and any inappropriate touching was accidental or did not happen.

Ozone hole closing The ozone hole over New Zealand is closing, but it may warm up Antarctica which could then affect the West Coast and Canterbury Plains, a university researcher says. Dr Adrian McDonald, from Canterbury University’s Physics and Astronomy department, was commenting after data released by the World Meteorological Organisation showed the ozone layer would recover between the years 2050 and 2100. However, as a result of the ozone hole closing, Antarctica would probably become warmer, Dr McDonald said. An international agreement to reduce chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) has helped reduce the size of the ozone hole. - APNZ

The new entrance options proposed for the Ashburton Domain: Orange, option A: A new road off Walnut Avenue. Red, option B: A new entrance further south on West Street with the current access used as a left turn only exit. Yellow and Green, options C and D: New access points off West Street at the domain gates or the layby.

‘Poor’ public response to call for input on domain entrance By Sue NewmaN

Four options were up for consideration for a new entrance into the Ashburton Domain, but only two of those have generated any public support. The New Zealand Transport Agency is moving with speed to install traffic lights at the corner of West Street and Walnut Avenue, but the current entrance to the domain will have to go. And while it came up with four possible alternatives, community feedback gave just two of those a tick. At a recent public open day where intersection changes were spelled out, just 40 people turned up and only 14 filled in comment sheets. Of those, 10 stated a preferred option for a new domain entrance, with seven selecting Walnut Avenue. The existing entrance from West Street is too close to Walnut Avenue and as part of its land designation application for the traffic lights, NZTA wants it changed but deciding on a new entrance with limited public input could be dangerous, mayor Angus McKay said. “The public input was disappointing but they need to have a good crack at this.” Where the new entrance is placed will ultimately be decided by the council, rather than NZTA, but it was important

The public input was disappointing but they need to have a good crack at this

community opinion was gauged, he said. The council opted to give NZTA the mandate to proceed with a land designation application for the Walnut Avenue lights because it wanted the project to forge ahead, but rather than identify a preferred site for the new domain access it simply indicated it was aware there was a need for change. A survey of domain users and a development plan for the domain were all to be carried out and these would be helpful too in establishing the new entrance, council group service delivery manager Neil McCann said. The transport agency has undertaken design work for lights at both the West and East Street intersections with Walnut Avenue. The council however, does not want the two projects to proceed in tandem because it has to fund a large slice of the East Street work.

Warning after roadside spill By Michelle NelsoN

An alien weed is threatening Mid Canterbury’s lucrative arable farming industry. Officials are scrambling to deal with a roadside spill of seed contaminated with black grass between Ashburton and Methven. Black grass or meadow fox tail has established in winter crops in Britain and Europe. The weed is resistant to many herbicides and is difficult to control in several crops. It competes for nutrients, light, water and space, out-competing crops and reducing yields. Scientists from the Foundation for Arable Research, Primary Industries Ministry, Federated Farmers and ECan staff intend to develop surveillance and eradication plans to deal with any areas of weed strike. The contaminated seed lot has been isolated and returned to its country of origin. According to FAR chief executive Nick Pyke only a small amount of seed was spilled and

In brief Fire suspicious Fire safety officers will investigate a suspicious blaze at an unused timber mill at Kaitaia.

Killer dogs seized Two dogs suspected of killing an alpaca on a lifestyle block near Ngunguru in Northland have been seized at Maungakaramea by animal control officers and could be destroyed.

An alpaca had to be shot after being mauled by a dog in 2010, and in 2011 an alpaca and Welsh mountain pony were savaged by dogs. - APNZ

the percentage of black grass contamination was minimal. “This considerably reduces the risk of this invasive weed establishing,” Mr Pyke said. “However, given its potential

economic impacts, it is vital that all reasonable steps are taken to prevent establishment.” Black grass seed heads were usually reddish-purple, giving the appearance from a distance

of black grass. Germination of the spilled seed was most likely to occur from now through to April and any black grass would be most visible from November to April.

More than 10,000 people from around New Zealand and overseas are expected to descend on Tauranga when the AIMS Games open next week. The intermediate and middle school sports competition starts with an opening ceremony on September 15 and has attracted 6500 students from 193 schools. - APNZ

Hospital care questioned By Matthew Backhouse The hospital care received by an Invercargill mother just a day before her baby girl suffered critical injuries is under review. Noklair Milton was rushed to hospital after being injured at her Invercargill home early on Monday morning. The 3-week-old remains in an induced coma at Auckland’s Starship Hospital, where a spokeswoman last night said

she was in a critical but stable condition. Noklair’s mother, Sucharitta Milton, reportedly visited Southland Hospital the day before she was injured. Southern District Health Board yesterday confirmed it was reviewing the care Mrs Milton received. “This is a tragic and extremely difficult situation and I extend my sympathy to all those involved,” said Southern DHB

chief executive Carole Heatly. “We are conducting a thorough review of the care Mrs Milton received. We are committed to ensuring all out patients receive safe, high-quality care, and if that was not the case, we will undertake clear action to improve our service.” Mrs Heatly said the DHB was limited in what it could say about the case because it needed to respect patient privacy and the police investigation into the

girl’s injuries was ongoing. Police have said the baby’s parents, David and Sucharitta Milton, were at home at the time of the incident about 5.30am on Monday. The parents had been spoken to and police were not looking for anyone else. Several neighbours reported hearing noises from the property early on Monday before emergency services were called to the Princes St home. - APNZ


The future of Methven House hangs in the balance as its committee organises a public meeting to be held in the town next week. The Methven Aged Persons’ Welfare Association Incorporated (MAPWAI) issued a press release yesterday, informing it was “likely that in the near future” provision of residential aged care at the 12-bed rest home would “have to cease”. This was due to a number of factors including the need for earthquake strengthening. Chairperson Colin Lill said the organisation did not yet have details on the cost of earthquake strengthening, and he could not elaborate on the other “factors” at this stage. MAPWAI’s management committee had commissioned a series of professional studies to provide the community with information to make decisions about the future of Methven House. “The association would like

to thank the Lochhead Trust and the Methven Lions Club for their financial support of this process,” he said. The association was to hold a series of community consultations to present this information. “The opinions of the community will be sought and ultimately a decision about the future of Methven House will be made.” The first meeting will be a public meeting on Thursday next week at 8pm at the Mt Hutt Memorial Hall. It had been a “huge community effort” which had led to the establishment of Methven House in the first place, over 40 years ago. “The association manages its assets for the provision of aged care on behalf of the community of Methven and surrounding districts.” Current services include rest home-level residential care, meals on wheels, day care respite for caregivers, longer term respite care and rental flats with support services.

Ratepayers may know this morning whether they will face a $700,000 plus payout to Christchurch City Council chief executive Tony Marryatt. City councillors are likely to know whether Mr Marryatt will stay or go after he was put on special leave over the consents debacle. The council’s chief executive committee has prepared a report on Mr Marryatt’s future which will be discussed behind closed doors from 8am. Mr Marryatt’s contract ex-

pires in December next year. If city councillors decide he will not return to his desk from his special leave then he is likely be paid out for the rest of his contract. He receives $538,529 a year. Mr Marryatt could also receive another $68,000 - the pay rise he did not take after a massive public outcry last year. However he reserved the right to take it back at any time.

That was likely to mean ratepayers would never be officially told what Mr Marryatt’s settlement was. “The parties would generally enter into a full and final agreement that would include confidentiality,” said Mr Beck. “It would be absolutely confidential.” Confidentiality was included

for “very sensible, pragmatic” reasons including preserving an employee’s professional reputation and averting any litigation costs. In the case of a local body, all councillors would be legally bound by the confidentiality clause. On Wednesday it was revealed the cost of the consents bungle was $4.52 million over two years. City councillor Helen Broughton said she hoped the price tag of the consents debacle would be considered. It was “inappropriate” to comment further. - APNZ

The middle of the country continues to shake as two earthquakes rattled the area overnight on Wednesday. The first, a magnitude-5 quake, hit at 12.04am Thursday, GNS Science said. It was centred 35km north east of Seddon and was 19km deep. Shortly after that tremor, another smaller quake hit at 12.11am. It measured 3.2 in magnitude and was centred 15km east of Seddon and was 10km deep. - APNZ

Charged over attack A man has been charged over an attack on a jogger in Auckland. The woman was running along Lake Road, Devonport, on the evening of April 22 when she was indecently assaulted, North Shore Police said. “A 23-year-old Northcote man will appear in the North Shore District Court this morning, on two charges of indecent assault” said Detective Aaron Iremonger. “This attack was very concerning to many Devonport residents and the arrest of this man will hopefully bring a sense of relief to the local community.” - APNZ

Synlait lifts prices by a dollar By Michelle NelsoN

Synlait Milk has lifted its milk solids price by a dollar per kilogram for the coming season. High international commodity prices have driven the price paid to Synlait farmers from $7 to $8 per kgMS. The company also lifted its advance rates for the season effective from August, paid in September, from $4.50 per kgMS to $5. The news comes on the back of Synlait’s announcement to up production volumes of its ingredient products, by taking a significant allocation of milk from Fonterra, as permitted under the Dairy Industry Restructuring Act. Synlait’s investment in plant and equipment has created an opportunity to increase pro-

duction capacity of ingredient products without impacting infant formula or nutritional product business. Managing director John Penno said the company was confident in achieving its forecast financial result. “Higher than forecast revenue from high commodity prices and additional processing volumes mean we remain confident of achieving our 2014 earnings targets at these increased milk prices.” Federated Farmers dairy chairman Willy Leferink said the news came at a good time – and advised making the most of the current commodity prices. “Synlait has joined the ‘good news club’ at a time when dairy farmers needed some reassurance in the strength of the market,” Mr Leferink said.

Backing book giveaway By sue NewMaN

Giving away books to outstanding adult learners is a great way to celebrate their achievements, an adult learning expert says. Ashburton Learning Centre manager Mary Philip is involved with the Literacy Aotearoa-NZ Post project that will see more than 7000 books by top New Zealand and international authors given away. The Travelling Books project is designed to foster a love of reading and has been running since 2011. Unlike most books that are bought, read and kept, this project aims to put books in circulation. Once they’ve been read, they can be given away or simply left in a public place for another reader to pick up and enjoy. Ashburton will receive about 200 books and Ms Philips decided the adult learner graduation ceremony on Friday was a perfect starting point to begin

the book giveaway. The project stretches from Kaitaia to Invercargill and was launched on Tuesday night at Government House in Auckland by the Governor-General, Lt Gen The Rt Hon Sir Jerry Mateparae and Lady Janine Mateparae. The books will be released in about 45 locations around New Zealand and cover more than 100 titles across children, young adults, adult fiction and non fiction categories. Inside each book there are instructions on how to pass the books on once they’ve finished. Each book has a unique code inside the front cover, so anyone who picks it up and reads it is invited to log on to the Literacy Aotearoa website and record its title and location. Everyone who reports a book sighting goes into a monthly draw to win one of two $50 ‘Prezzy Cards’ donated by New Zealand Post.

At the Travelling Books project launch are (from left): Brian Roche, New Zealand Post chief executive; Ella Henry; Bronwyn Yates, Literacy Aotearoa chief executive; and Sir Jerry and Lady Janine Mateparae.

“It has been a tumultuous time for the dairy industry this past month, but it is clear from Fonterra, Westland and Synlait that the demand for New Zealand milk is stronger than ever. “New Zealand leads the world as a desired supplier of dairy products and our farmers are amongst the best paid farmers in the world. It is important that we celebrate and emphasise these strengths after the public flogging Fonterra has faced. If New Zealanders do not tell the good stories, no one else will. “These prices are going to encourage dairy industries around the world to increase their production, to cash in on our success. The flow-on effect of that is a greater volume of product in the world market, which in due course may lead to falling prices.”

Synlait Milk managing director John Penno is confident about the year ahead.


Homeless man stabbed in central Auckland park Police have confirmed that the homeless man who died after being attacked in a central Auckland park on Wednesday night was stabbed in the upper body. The man was named by police yesterday as 54-year-old Steven Harris. He died in hospital following the attack, which took place in Myers Park, close to Mayoral Drive, shortly before 11.30pm. Police were still at the scene last evening, carrying out luminol testing to detect blood around a “specific area of interest” under the Mayoral Drive overbridge. The police Specialist Search Group will return to the park this morning to continue searching for the weapon used against Mr Harris. Acting Detective Inspector John Sutton said several items of interest had been recovered from the wider scene yesterday. “Our objective tonight is to firm up on the attack scene and locate evidence that is not immediately obvious to the naked eye. We have not heard from any of the three Asian people - two men and a woman - we understand were in the park at the time of the attack so we’d encourage them to contact us, even if they don’t have information that could assist the inves-

tigation.” Others in the park saw Mr Harris fall to the ground on Wednesday night and ran to give him first aid as they rang emergency services. “They have seen an assault take place, or an attack, and the victim fall to the ground, and then they have gone to assist that victim, along with the police when they arrived,” Mr Sutton said, adding that at this stage they had not indicated seeing a weapon. CCTV footage shows the man

- described as wearing dark trousers and a light-coloured top - had not been running, Mr Sutton said. Despite the heavy rain which fell in Auckland overnight Wednesday and yesterday morning, the scene had been preserved. “Of course rain does make it difficult, but the attending staff, as soon as they got there, put into play some tents and other things to protect the scene as well as we could,” he said. Mr Harris had recently been living with a friend in Epsom, but before that he was living on the streets. At a media briefing yesterday, police were keen to assure the public there was no connection between this attack and the death of homeless man Edwin Linder, 42, in central Auckland on August 3. A teenager has since been charged with Mr Linder’s murder. - APNZ

Real CBD progress great to see Coen Lammers EDITOR


he fact that the Burnett and East Street corner will soon start a new lease of life will be welcome news to everyone in Ashburton. The intersection next to Somerset House is the original centre of town, and the recent state of repair and rubble did not do justice to a booming district. On the third anniversary of the first bursts of Canterbury earthquakes in 2010 it’s an encouraging sight to see the new Holmeslee Square getting close to completion and the first shops moving back in. Especially those working in the Unichem chemist on the corner will happy that they are no longer working on a retail island and will be glad to see the construction come to an end to enjoy the shops and new café on their doorstep. The construction has taken some time and was costly, according to the developers, as they opted to give this part of town a new retail and office block designed around a courtyard, instead the much-maligned concrete box model. So far we know that Michael Hill Jewellers will join the retail mix in the centre of town, while Vodafone will move back to its home on East Street. The retailers around this area will get a further boost as the six shops on the other side of Burnett Street are getting close to completion. Two of them are believed to be leased out already and locals will be curious to see which retailers or services will join them. Once the Redmonds building and adjacent structures across the road are also strengthened and beautified, the East Street end of Burnett Street has a real potential of again becoming the heart of Ashburton, with the cafés and retailers forming an enticing mix for shoppers. While many businesses and individuals across Mid Canterbury are still battling with insurances and repairs, it is marvellous to see some real progress in the quake-damaged CBD.

YOUR VIEW Bone to pick Why is it that people think it is okay to throw cooked bones in the park in Tinwald or the side of the road where dogs are walked the bones are usually in plastic bread bag. Maybe they do not know it is extremely dangerous for dogs to eat cooked bones as they can splinter inside and cause serious problems or even death if not noticed, as the bone can pierce the inside of the dog. So whoever does this please don’t. From a dog lover (Text message)

Gates’ column What an illustrative and informative article on the art gallery and museum being foisted upon the shoulders of the ratepayers penned by Edward Gates. What a pity such an approach was not available a few years ago before this monstrosity took root. The councillors who progressed this scheme may have had friends who could have read it to them and perhaps explained the meanings of words obviously unfamiliar to them. Hopefully there will be a benefit to the district in the coming election. The inference contained in the column supplied by Mr Lester and conveyed in his final sentence, that he’d not write let-

The best college rugby team ever? Phill Hooper OFF THE AIR


was stoked to see the crowd support for the Ashburton College 1st XV on Saturday at the Allenton Rugby Club grounds. I’m not real flash at guessing the size of a crowd but I’d suggest there was 500plus people there. The boys did the crowd proud too with a solid 34–10 win over Dunstan College from Alexandra in the final of the co–ed championship. I spoke with coach Shane Enright this week and he was pretty thrilled with the performance. He felt the lads were almost scared to lose in the first half but expressed themselves well in the second 40. Today’s semifinal against the Blues franchise co-ed win-

This week’s funny from Hoops in the Morning Facebook page.

ners, Tongaroa College from Auckland, should be a different story. It’s big step up for the boys but they have nothing to lose. The Tongaroa side are big all over the paddock and very confrontational, so the locals will be looking to “get the ball wide all game” according to Enright. He also told me that big number 8 Shalom Pulu has had surgery on his broken leg and is expected to make a full recovery. This would have to be the most successful College 1st XV

I’m guessing and we should be very proud of their achievements and those achievements don’t come without a lot of hard work. Good luck boys! Things have come a long way since the mid-80s when the team was that poor that P. Hooper played at fullback. Can I just also say that the Allenton number one ground is an excellent spot to watch some footy. The grass bank on the northern touchline is great! All it needs is a grandstand erected

on the southern side and I reckon the rugby union has a pretty good option if it wants to leave the showgrounds. I’m guessing there will also be a home for Mid Canterbury Rugby at the EA Networks stadium also! I’d like to finish this week with a warning, from my police chats with Prendo, there has been a spate of thefts of late, in all parts of our town and also in our rural areas. Make sure you keep your place locked up, but also keep an eye on your neighbourhood and if you see something that doesn’t look quite right, trust your gut and give the boys in blue a call. Till next Friday. Hoo Roo Phill Hooper is the breakfast host of Ashburton’s Classic Hits.

Top jockey in strife Former leading jockey Danny Nikolic has been fined $1500 for assaulting a fellow rider and a police officer, with a magistrate rejecting his self-defence claims. Magistrate Angela Bolger questioned the reliability of Nikolic’s evidence and found he punched the jockey and later assaulted the detective as they stood toe-to-toe. Nikolic, who is already serving a two-year ban from racing for threatening Victoria’s chief racing steward, was convicted and fined $1200 for recklessly causing injury to jockey Mark Pegus in January 2011. - AAP

Obama to push for strike World leaders are set to meet at a G20 summit in Russia where US President Barack Obama will strive to bridge deep divisions over his push for military action against the Syrian regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons. Obama cleared the first hurdle yesterday in his race to win domestic congressional backing for punitive strikes but is also seeking broader international support. Speaking during a trip to Stockholm he said the world had set “a red line” for Syria and it could not now remain silent in the face of the alleged chemical weapons attack on Damascus suburbs. But Russian President Vladimir Putin, a fierce opponent of the proposed military action, warned on the eve of

the summit he is hosting in Saint Petersburg that it would be unacceptable for the West to go ahead with military action against Damascus without UN Security Council approval. The Kremlin demanded “convincing” proof that the regime of Bashar al-Assad was responsible for using chemical weapons against its own people. According to US intelligence, more than 1400 people living in rebel-held suburbs of Damascus were killed in the strike, which involved the use of the sarin nerve gas. Beyond convincing Russia, Obama has a tough sell ahead elsewhere, with China - another veto-wielding Security Council member state - having already expressed its “grave concerns” over unilateral military strikes. German Chancellor Angela

Merkel has repeatedly ruled out her country’s participation in any US-led military strike against Assad’s regime, while the British parliament has also rejected the idea. But Obama said in Sweden: “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line,” referring to international rules banning the use of chemical weapons, even in case of war. “My credibility is not on the line,” he said. “The international community’s credibility is on the line and America and Congress’s credibility is on the line.” The Syria conflict threatens to torpedo items on the G20 agenda - such as an “action plan” for sustainable and balanced global growth - even though it has not been formally pencilled in. Syria is certain to be the top

issue in the flurry of bilateral meetings between the leaders of the world’s top 20 developed and emerging nations around the seaside Tsarist Konstantinovsky palace in Strelna on the Gulf of Finland seashore. White House officials have said Obama will hold meetings on the sidelines of the G20 with French President Francois Hollande, the main foreign backer of a strike on Syria, as well as the leaders of China and Japan. Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Muqdad said his government was ready to retaliate in case of foreign military action. “The Syrian government will not change position even if there is World War III. No Syrian can sacrifice the independence of his country,” Muqdad said. - AFP


Cleveland rapist ‘took his own life’ The death of the former US bus driver jailed for life for kidnapping and raping three young women he held as sex slaves for a decade has been met by surprise, relief and jeers. Ariel Castro (right) was found hanged in “an apparent case of suicide” in his closely moni-

tored cell, authorities say. His death has brought an abrupt and dramatic ending to a sordid case that shocked America and the world with its revelations of depravity and brutality. JoEllen Smith, spokeswoman for the Ohio prisons department, said “It does appear to be

an apparent case of suicide.” Blogs posted in the main Cleveland newspaper, The Plain Dealer, were merciless. “Adios diablo, may you burn for 1000 years, just like you were sentenced,” one said, alluding to his jail term of life plus 1000 years. - AFP

A Chinese official who became known as “Brother Watch” because of his taste for luxury timepieces has been convicted of corruption and sentenced to 14 years in prison. Yang Dacai first came under scrutiny from Chinese internet users after he was pictured grinning broadly as he assessed the twisted wreckage of a bus and a methanol tanker following an accident which left 36 people dead last year. The former work safety boss in the northern province of Shaanxi was later derided online after images of him wearing various luxury brand watches were tracked down and circulated. - AFP

Covering online tracks Amid growing fears about online surveillance and data theft, Americans are increasingly taking steps to remove or mask their digital footprints on the internet, a study shows. The Pew Research Center report says 86 per cent of US internet users have taken some steps to avoid online surveillance by other people or organisations. Despite these precautions, 21 per cent of online adults in the survey have had an email or social media account hijacked and 11 per cent have had information like Social Security numbers or financial data stolen. - AFP

Strangled by seatbelt Aged care staff should be discouraged from using lap sash seatbelts to secure people in wheelchairs, says a coroner who’s found an elderly resident was strangled by one. Ruth Ann Dicker, 83, died in July 2011 while sitting in a wheelchair in her room at the Holly Residential Care Centre in Adelaide. “She had somehow moved downwards in the chair in such a manner that the lap belt was no longer around her lap, but under her chin,” said South Australia’s State Coroner Mark Johns yesterday. - AAP

Olympic baby boom Olympics success helped drive a baby boom in London, Boris Johnson has claimed.

He said the remark during the victory parade had been proved correct as the birth rate had reached a 40year high. - PA

‘French snobbery’ blocks brewery Ross said it was not appropriate for a French company to “dictate what’s good for the Marlborough region”. “Every other wine region in the world has active craft brewers. So too should Marlborough.” Opponents to the expansion have been concerned the enlarged brewery would create more traffic, visual disturbance, waste water, noise, spray drift and odour. There has also been concern about the amount of extra water the brewery would use.

Ross said he had less of a gripe with the appeals lodged by locals Philip Rose and Samuel Rose, and Simon Matthews. “They’re objecting more based on rational reasons; I’m okay with that but I think our rational reasons are stronger,” he said. “Where I’m really struggling is with is an industrial-sized winery objecting to a tiny beverage dwelling.” Moa raised $16 million in its sharemarket float last November, for the purpose of expanding capacity at its Blenheim brewery. - HOL

A foreign-owned Marlborough winery’s attempt to stop Moa Beer from expanding its brewery “reeks of French snobbery”, says the brewery’s chief executive Geoff Ross. NZX-listed Moa was last month granted resource consent to carry out a $6.1 million expansion of its brewery in Jacksons Rd near Blenheim. Three parties - including two Marlborough residents and Cloudy Bay Vineyards, which is owned by French champagne

house Veuve Clicquot - have since appealed to the Environment Court. Ross yesterday hit out at Cloudy Bay, accusing the winery of using “dirty tactics” to stifle Moa’s consented brewery expansion, designed to increase its export capability. “It seems they think Marlborough should be exclusively positioned as a wine region and that beer undermines that,” he said. “It reeks of French wine snobbery. I don’t have problem with foreign ownership but I do with foreign control.”

Dotcom resigns from Mega BY PAUL MCBETH Flamboyant internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom has resigned as a director of his Mega data storage empire to focus on his efforts on fighting extradition to the United States and other projects. Dotcom resigned as a director of Mega on August 29, and was replaced by Hong Kongbased Bonnie Lam the same day, according to filings to the Companies Office. Dotcom staged a full-scale global media launch for Mega last year to replace Megaupload, his previous venture which was shut down in a USled operation that alleged the file-sharing firm and its owners had committed mass copyright infringement and money laundering of more than US$500 million. Tony Lentino and Mathias Ortmann are still on Mega’s board. Mega chief executive Vikram Kumar told BusinessDesk in an emailed statement Dotcom resigned “to be able to focus on the extradition case, an upcoming music

website, and to build a political party.” Dotcom doesn’t hold any directorships in New Zealand, and has one direct shareholding in RSV Holdings, according to Companies Office filings. His wife, Mona, is a director of Mr KimDotcom Ltd and a director and shareholder in MD Corporate Trustee Ltd, the biggest shareholder in Mega. Earlier this week Dotcom told followers on Twitter he planned to launch a political party in New Zealand, with the next election likely to be near the end of next year, and has previously signalled plans for web-based music service called Megabox. Dotcom and his co-accused Finn Batato, Mathias Ortmann and Bram van der Kolk have taken their case to the Supreme Court, seeking access to evidence in the US Federal government’s

case to extradite them, and are awaiting a decision. The District and High Courts upheld their request for a trimmed down disclosure, though that was overturned in the Court of Appeal earlier this year. Dotcom’s high profile arrest in January last year led to an ove r h a u l of New Zealand’s external spy a g e n c y, the Government Communica-

tions Security Bureau, after the intelligence unit unlawfully intercepted his communications. At the time of the surveillance, the GCSB wasn’t allowed to spy on New Zealand residents and Dotcom had been granted residency. The government has since tweaked the law governing the spy agency, allowing it to act on behalf of the domestic spy agency, the Security Intelligence Service, the police or the Defence Force. - APNZ (BusinessDesk)


Subbies unpaid ‘for several weeks’ BY MORGAN TAIT Dozens of subcontractors working on the Government’s ultra-fast broadband network have not been paid for weeks of work on the project. Australian firm Transfield Services was hired by some of

the four New Zealand businesses contracted to the Government - Northpower Fibre, Chorus, Ultrafast Fibre and Enable Networks - to deliver the UFB network in New Zealand. New Zealand First leader Winston Peters yesterday raised the issue in Parliament,

saying Transfield subcontractors had not been paid for their work. Transfield spokesman David Jamieson told the Herald he was aware of an issue involving “several weeks of work” for a small number of the firm’s subcontractors.

“We are in the process of trying to sort out what’s happening,’ he said. The possibility of a computer glitch was being investigated, as were other possibilities including conflicts between subcontractors and their employers.” - NZH

Robots that do most of the dirty work on the Sydney Harbour Bridge have been recognised in a prestigious science award. The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and the Sydney University of Technology collaborated on the technology and are the finalist in the ANSTO Eureka Prize for innovative use of technology. “It’s a fantastic recognition for the two grit-blasting robots which help carry out two-thirds of the dirty work to maintain our iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge,” an RMS spokesman said. “The 25 kilogram robots use internal sensors and cameras to locate old paint and grit to then blast the material away as part of the $20 million annual maintenance programme on the bridge.” - AAP

One small sentence . . . A pint-sized android has uttered the first robotic words in space, showcasing Japan’s drive to combine cutting-edge technology with cuteness. The wide-eyed and bootie-wearing “Kirobo” - roughly the size of a chihuahua - broadcast a message from inside the International Space Station, greeting citizens of Earth and paying cheeky tribute to Neil Armstrong. “On August 21, 2013, a robot took one small step toward a brighter future for all,” Kirobo said in a video that showed the humanoid creation drifting weightlessly on-board the ISS, as it moved its legs in the air. The images made their global debut yesterday as part of Tokyo’s bid for the 2020 Games during a presentation ahead of a meeting of the International Olympic Committee in Buenos Aires which will decide the host city. “Good morning to everyone on Earth. This is Kirobo. I am the world’s first talking robot astronaut. Nice to meet you,” it said in Japanese. - AFP

Currie quinella The Currie boys from Methven had a one-two finish in the Wulong Mountain Quest in China yesterday. Current Coast-to-Coast champion Braden Currie, racing with Richard Ussher, Elina Ussher and Stuart Lynch took out the opening prologue of the adventure race while older brother Glen has teamed up with Dougal Allan, Jacob Roberts and Simone Maier and came in second. Braden and the Usshers teamed up to win the event last year and made a strong start, but the real racing starts today with the first of three days of longer stages, expected to take five to six hours each.

Finish line in sight The fourth and final round of the Ashburton duathlon series with the long course event doubling as the Canterbury Tri Club’s Canterbury Championship race on Sunday. The long course consists of a 5km run, 30km bike and another 5km run while the short course is a 2.5k run/walk, 11km bike and 1.25k run/ walk. Up for grabs are the fourth race honours, the Canterbury championship titles and the overall series titles, with the best two results from the three races counting, after race two was cancelled.

Tennis back on court Spring has sprung and Mid Canterbury Tennis host their Annual Open Day this Sunday for players to get back into the swing of things. Junior players can come along and sign up for the season between 12:30-2pm with a small fun tournament from 2pm. Open grade players have registration from 2pm. Wednesday night Twilight Tennis has also opened for team entries with the competition to start on October 2.

Perry anchoring Makos Tim Perry resumes his spot in the Tasman Makos front row and Gary Redmond is again on the bench when they take on Otago in Nelson tonight. The Makos are coming off an upset win over Counties Manukau while Otago are still hurting from handing the Shield over to Hawkes Bay last Sunday, after winning it for the first time since 1957 but held it for just eight days. Hawkes Bay puts the trophy up against Counties on Saturday, looking to hold it for longer than Otago could. Counties have had a short turnaround after being edged by Auckland 20-22 on Wednesday. Sunday’s action sees potential wooden spooners Manawatu and North Harbour in Palmerston North before Northland, featuring former Mid Canterbury prop Scott Vessey go up against Wellington.

Cantabs crush Bay There we were, marvelling at such confusion, and suddenly a quick blast of outstanding rugby broke out. Unfortunately for Bay of Plenty, it was a lopsided deal as the perennial ITM Cup champions Canterbury found top gear late in the first half at Rotorua’s International Stadium. From that point, they charged to an impressive 48-18 win. The short passes flowed for an excellent Canterbury try after halftime and Bay of Plenty were sunk from that point. - NZH

Premier honours on the line By Jonathan Leask

For a third straight year Celtic and Methven will contest the Mid Canterbury Premier netball final tomorrow. Celtic won round one in 2011, and Methven hit back in round two last year. Celtic head in hoping that 13 proves a lucky number, sweeping through the season unbeaten with 13 straight wins, but that means nothing if the perfect end eludes them. “We set ourselves a goal to go through the season unbeaten, but it doesn’t count for anything if we can’t finish it off,” Celtic captain Gina Taylor said.

Taylor’s team go in as the favourites but won’t take Methven lightly, knowing just how close the teams have been. “We know what they are going to bring and we think we have what it takes to combat them to finish on the right side of the score this year. “They have experienced heads that are pretty consistent and don’t make a lot of mistakes so it’s about putting them under pressure. “We need to start strong and have them chase us from the word go instead of playing catch up.” Celtic have had Methven’s number this year taking a 20-16

win in the opening round of the season and then a come-frombehind 22-19 win to end the premier round robin, however, Methven believe they know what to do to turn that around. “We have to slow them down through the court,” Methven captain Sally Williams said. “They are fast through the court and when they get it to the circle fast they have good opportunities to score so we have to slow them down. “It will be another big defensive effort right through the court, and then being safe with our own ball.” Methven pulled out a big effort against Hampstead in the

semi-finals in what Williams said was a “complete team performance” that showed the patience in attack and pressure on defence they want. History isn’t on the defending champion’s side. No team has won back-toback titles since United won in 2001-2002, and recently they have only won the premier title the same year Methven has won rugby’s Watters Cup. “I keep hearing all these stats, “no one has done it twice in 10 years” and “you never win when the rugby don’t win” but we have to put the history aside and make some new history,” Williams said.

Oracle penalty ‘completely unfair’ - Coutts By PauL Lewis The backlash has begun. Oracle Team USA chief executive Sir Russell Coutts (right) said he was “astounded” at the “outrageous” punishment by the America’s Cup international jury and a lawyer for one of the sailors said the process was “completely unfair”. Coutts told the San Francisco Chronicle he thought the jury might have been swayed by the

New Zealand media which “had a win out of all this”. A Herald on Sunday column from this writer last weekend was quoted in the Chronicle, particularly the section which advocated that the jury should “boot Oracle out of their own regatta. They are unlikely to do that. The Cup would pass automatically to Emirates Team NZ and would not be fought out on the water. There are all sorts of commercial, sponsor and

contractural realities that will likely prevent that. Ethically, that’s what should happen. It was cheating. Deliberate or accidental; institutional or the act of rogue elements - it doesn’t matter. It’s cheating.” The lawyer, Sydney Luscutoff, said his client (whose case was dismissed) and other Oracle employees were accused in a completely unfair process, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. - HOS

College girls struggle with injuries The Ashburton College girls went down 2-1 in their Gary Sowden Football Tournament game yesterday, with Annie Rilley’s equaliser cancelled out by a second strike from Woodford.

Hansen backs Carter to re-assert himself By Patrick Mckendry All Blacks coach Steve Hansen acknowledges Dan Carter is under pressure to perform on Saturday following a limited diet of test rugby and a chasing pack of first-fives, but is backing him to re-assert himself on the big stage. Carter has played only one test since December due to a host of injuries including a broken hand and strained calf. In that time Aaron Cruden and Beauden Barrett have developed further, with Tom Taylor also handling

his test debut a fortnight ago against Australia with aplomb. Carter’s last test was against France in New Plymouth, a match in which he wasn’t happy with his performance. The test against the Pumas at Waikato Stadium will be his 96th and that experience will be ideal for Francis Saili on debut outside him, Hansen said. The coach added Carter came into the French test as the All Blacks were developing a new game plan which didn’t help. “He needs a decent run of games and the next time we

play in Wellington I think we’ll leave him at home ... every time he goes there he seems to get injured.” All Blacks: Israel Dagg, Ben Smith, Conrad Smith, Francis Saili, Julian Savea, Dan Carter, Aaron Smith, Kieran Read, Richie McCaw (c), Steven Luatua, Sam Whitelock, Brodie Retallick, Charlie Faumuina, Andrew Hore, Tony Woodcock. Reserves: Dane Coles, Ben Franks, Wyatt Crockett, Jeremy Thrush, Sam Cane, Tawera Kerr-Barlow, Beauden Barrett, Charles Piutau. - APNZ

Bowlers eye up major trophy BY JONATHAN LEASK


The Ashburton Indoor Bowls team chase after another big prize in Lincoln this weekend. Ashburton won the right to contest for the Welch Trophy, the Ranfurly Shield of indoor bowls, when they won the Patterson Trophy in July to take out their regional zone five qualifier in Collingwood, courtesy of some last bowl heroics from Michael Lawson. Lawson delivered the killer blow to have Ashburton finish on top with 126 to Nelson’s 125, while defending champions Canterbury made a late charge but fell short on 123. Ashburton last qualified for

the Welch Trophy in 2005, with Canterbury dominating the zone in the seven seasons, winning the Welch Trophy four years in a row from 2008 to 2011. Now Ashburton returns looking to win the trophy for the first time since it was introduced in 1951. The Ashburton team of Grant Wilson, Ken Mackenzie, Murray Bassett, Russell Ellis, Lawson, Alex Crawford, Mark Sheard and Christine Talbot now plays the other five zone winners that won their zone for the Welch Trophy, taking on Auckland, Tauranga, North Taranaki, Hutt Valley and Otago in singles, pairs and fours. Play starts tomorrow night and concludes on Sunday.

YOUR STARS by Forecasters

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20) New Moon vibes could be just enough to give things already at a tipping point the right nudge at the right time. TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21) This is not only a day for following your heart but for embracing a sense of adventure, with a chance to start making up for lost time. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 22) The key to holding on to a growing sense of financial confidence and using it to take your power back is the attitude you take to the past. CANCER (JUNE 22 – JULY 24) While the communication focus is more about moving on, on the social and relationship fronts it’s about the past, with the doors open to second chances. LEO (JULY 24 – AUG 23) While your income focus is firmly on the future and new opportunities, on the work and career fronts the focus is on the past. VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 23) It is now that you are starting to find the confidence to follow your heart and appreciate that it’s all about the journey. LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 23) Positive dynamics on the financial, home and family fronts helps put the past into context, while creating new confidence in the future. SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) A powerful alliance between communication and relationship forces peaks today, just as there is an opportunity for second chances. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) With your professional instincts sharp and a tailwind at your back, you’re in the perfect position to seize the moment and take your power back. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) With the Moon still in an adventurous part of your chart use this as an opportunity to embrace a sense of wanderlust and a curiosity for life. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) This is a day to commit to your financial game plan, taking the first steps towards turning financial desires and expectations into reality. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) There are some special developments taking place on the communication front, especially when it comes to giving unsaid words a voice.

Spartans into the lions’ den BY JONATHAN LEASK


As most sports teams do the Ashburton College 1st XV have adopted a moniker, the Spartans. They will need a Spartan effort as the “little old Ashburton College” takes on the might of Auckland’s Tangaroa College in the National Co-Ed rugby finals in Rotorua today. History buffs, or anyone who has watched the movie 300, will know the story of the Spartans, and Ashburton will be playing out the rugby version today. “The Spartans are going to

war against the Persians but we just have to somehow try and turn around history,” Ashburton College coach Shane Enright said. Ashburton won the right to represent the South Island after they cracked the top eight in the Crusaders secondary schools competition for the first time and finished as the top Co-Ed school, before they beat Highlanders winners Dunstan 34-10 to advance to the top four finals. Tangaroa produced some big performances on their way to representing the Blues region.

In the previous two seasons they had lost 20 of 22 games by an average score of 33-7 in Auckland’s 1A competition. This year they won four of their 11 games, a record that doesn’t sound impressive until you see the list of opponents. They went close against St Kentigerns 15-21 (the defending 1st XV champions which have won 50 games in a row, Auckland Grammar 10-15, Mt Albert Grammar 9-23, Kings College 15-16 and Kelston Boys 6-8. These schools are considered heavyweights in New Zealand

secondary school rugby. Tangaroa come into the CoEd final battle hardened, which is why the Ashburton College Spartans head in with a siege mentality. “They are in the 1A competition and had some huge games so we know it will be tough but they have two arms, two legs and one heart just like us.” Making the task at hand that bit harder, Shalum Pulu has spent the week in Christchurch hospital after suffering a broken femur while Toafa and Romeo Touli were also unavailable.

Setariki Koroitamana now takes on a bigger role in the team, filling the big shoes of Pulu. The versatile speedster was the top try scorer in the Crusaders competition but in the South Island Co-Ed final the finisher turned provider. With Pulu ruled out Koroitamana moves to number eight and Nete Caucau returns to the midfield. “We aren’t going to change the way we play so we are going to run every opportunity we have and avoid taking them on up front,” Enright said.
