Plan submissions force larger increase By Sue Newman After four days of submissions and deliberations on its annual plan, the Ashburton District Council needs to find more than $250,000 extra to run the district next year. In its draft annual plan it had budgeted to spend $26.552 million, equating to an average rate rise of 4.9 per cent. A number of appeals for additional funds and a decision to invest an extra $100,000 in shingle for rural roads has seen the average rate rise increase by about 0.9 per cent to 5.8 per cent. This is still well below the 7.4 per cent increase forecast in the council’s long-term community plan. The other big contributors to the rate increase are the district’s memorial and community halls. The council has decided to pick up the tab for insurance for memorial halls and for initial earthquake inspections on community halls. This is likely to cost about $48,000. Additional expenditure also includes giving Experience Mid Canterbury $20,000 for a portion of the cost of an online marketing position. It will also be counting as an additional expense the loss of interest on some of its cash reserves that will be used to

underground some of the Harrison Street water channel and to pay for a portion of the Mt Somers water supply. The impact on individual rates across most of the district will be minimal and can be counted in single dollars. The brunt of the increased spending will be supported by the rural sector where the average rate rise has risen from 3.6 per cent to 4.5 per cent. The deteriorating condition of rural roads meant the council had no option but to pour more of its own funds into their upkeep, said Ashburton Mayor Angus Mckay. The extra $100,000 the council was putting into its roading budget would be money that would not be subsidised by the New Zealand Transport Agency, but the council would be fighting to attract a subsidy retrospectively, he said. “I’ve lost patience waiting for an answer so we’re going to go ahead and do a limited amount of this work unsubsidised. We’re keeping track of this money and letting the Government know we’re doing what they should be doing and what we’ve asked for.” Ashburton wasn’t alone in taking the initiative to fund roading work itself, with Selwyn having tagged $1 million of its own money for unsubsidised roading work, Mr McKay said.

Combined A&P associations’ winter feed competition judges Brian Leadley, Martin Fleming and James Anderson discuss a crop of fodder beet on Chris Bolderston’s farm at Hinds yesterday. Fodder beet is driving the engines of Mid Canterbury’s prolific dairy herd, according to the results of yesterday’s finals of the winter feed competition. Judges from Ashburton, Mayfield and Methven A&P associations hit the road after lunch to find the best winter feed crop in the district. The overall winner was first

time entrant Mark Hillier from Willamette Farm in the Methven district, who entered the competition after his neighbours looked over the fence at greener pastures. After a surprise win in his district’s competition Mr Hillier told the Guardian information gleaned from research about the timing of fertiliser and irrigation

had paid off. Quigley Farms took the second spot in the competition, also with a crop of fodder beet. Nine farms were under the spotlight; the first and second place-getters in the individual district competitions, along with the winner of the target crop section. The judges’ task began with

Hinds farmer Chris Bolderston’s fodder beet crop, which was already in high demand from a herd of heifers on the other side of the break fence. Judge Brian Leadley said they were looking for the quality the crop as a whole. “We are checking the evenness of the crop as a whole, how well it has been established, weed

establishment and insect damage,” Mr Leadley said. He said fodder beet provided energy in the form of high energy sugars, along with a good supply of essential nutrients. Ross Duncan’s crop of kale took out the prize for the target crop, with Steve Shearer in second place, followed by Roger Henderson.

Bach relocation ‘only erosion solution’ By Sue Newman Relocating their homes might be the only option left for seaside bach owners in the Hakatere huts settlement. Over decades river erosion carved into the cliffs on which the six or seven water front baches sit, and they now have a front yard that is less than two metres from a sheer drop. Determined to find answers to erosion issues, more than 50 property owners in the settlement made a submission to the Ashburton District Council’s annual plan. They wanted the council to look at options for stopping both river erosion and erosion by run-off after heavy rain.

Stopping the river eroding the cliffs was impossible, councillor John Leadley said. “It’s a big issue, it’s absolutely horrendous, we won’t tame the Pacific Ocean. I don’t see any physical solutions we can use to stop this.” For bach owners, the ultimate solution was to shift the front row of houses back to beyond the tennis courts, he said. “I still don’t see any other solution. In 50 years those cliffs have come back about 20 to 30 metres. We need to meet with Ecan and the residents and if anyone can come up with a silver bullet solution that’s great but I think we need to look long term.” The relocation of sea front baches had been on the drawing board for

years, council property manager John Rooney said. When the lower settlement land was sold to the hutholders’ association, the impact of future erosion was identified. The deal was that vacant sections had to be kept at the back of the settlement for the owners of those front row baches, he said. “This is clearly understood by the people down there. It’s an unfortunate situation because the simple answer to these baches is that they’re not capable of being picked up and moved. They’d fall to pieces and have to be rebuilt.” Some bach holders were saying they didn’t want baches on the rear sections because they would encroach on their green space, but that’s what that green space was

for in the original agreement, Mr Rooney said. “There’s no way you can stop it. You can spend a lot of money putting in barriers but the river will only come in behind them. The council has to be careful here it does not take responsibility for something that’s not their problem.” During a thunderstorm on April 30 there was a deluge of water from the upper huts level and this, combined with water running down River Road, saw about two metres of cliff collapse, taking with it the residents’ only access to the beach. Mr Rooney suggested one option to prevent damage from run-off could be diverting water into holding tanks and then piping this out into the river away from the cliffs. “Stormwater is something coun-

cil can and should be involved in. That’s our bit and if there is something we can do to stop that, that’s fine.” While councillor Robin Kilworth said the council should become the residents’ advocate to ECan, acting as the middle man, Mr Rooney said this needed to be done at some distance so the council was not perceived as accepting some degree of responsibility for coastal erosion. The council has made a submission to ECan’s annual plan stating its concerns about coastal erosion in the settlement. It has also asked that ECan staff meet with residents at the settlement to discuss their concerns about both coastal and riverbank erosion and to investigate possible remedial approaches.

to give locals a chance to quote or tender for work. To ensure this always happens, the association made a submission to the council’s annual plan asking it to adopt a “buy local procurement policy.” Currently the council has a procurement policy that has no weighting in favour of local suppliers, although they were given opportunities to submit prices and tenders,

chief executive Brian Lester said. “The submitters are seeking the opportunity to participate and they do have that opportunity now. We certainly try to (support locals) but it’s not always straightforward.” The Timaru District Council had a local weighting in its procurement policy. Ashburton had looked at this but made a decision not to adopt weighting, based on the rationale that the Ashburton District was

export based, Mr Lester said. “Putting in place protectionism wasn’t supported as we also operate outside our district. However, I do think our policy needs to be a bit more specific to ensure local businesses do have the opportunity. By and large they do.” Locals weren’t asking to be given the work, but they were asking to be given the opportunity to submit prices, he said.

The local procurement policy needed to go deeper than tendering, said councillor Robin Kilworth. She wanted an assurance that it would filter down to all staff who might be responsible for securing prices for lower value products. While the council has committed to introducing a local procurement policy, it intends to hold a workshop where it will hammer out the details of this policy.

Undergrounding water that runs down Harrison Street’s gutters is likely to cost more than $800,000. And that cost means it’s a job the Ashburton District Council will continue to do in stages. This week, when it finalised spending in its annual plan for next year the council decided it would carve the work off in stages, with the block from Charles Street to Allens Road likely to be next on the list. This will cost about $190,000. Because water that flows down the channel feeds the Ashburton Domain ponds the council has decided to fund the undergrounding work from its reserves fund. It will use $200,000 of this money in the coming year but this will come at a cost in lost interest of $10,000.

Fluoride removal ‘disappointing’ By Susan Sandys Ashburton dental surgeon Michael Holdaway is calling for district health boards to have the say when it comes to adding fluoride to community water supplies, rather than local bodies. Mr Holdaway was commenting after the “disappointing” decision by the Hamilton City Council this week to remove fluoride from the city’s water supply. The Hamilton City Council voted to remove fluoride, despite a 2006 referendum in the city showing majority support for the dental health measure. Mr Holdaway said fluoride and dental health were public health issues, and it did not seem to make sense that councils in some areas had voted fluoride out of their community water supplies. “I don’t know why councils run away from it,” Mr Holdaway said. Because the addition of fluoride to water supplies was a public health measure, he believed health boards should oversee it, rather than local bodies. Mr Holdaway said removal of fluoride from town water supplies, as had happened in Ashburton in 2002, impacted on the town’s most vulnerable citizens in terms of removing protection against tooth decay. He believed the rate of tooth decay had increased in Ashburton since its removal, and he was aware of children, some as young as five, “with chronic tooth ache”, having to wait eight months to have sur-

gery under general anaesthetic in Christchurch. Meanwhile, Ashburton District Council mayor Angus McKay supports water fluoridation, but does not see the issue coming back on the council’s agenda any time soon. “I do not think it’s appropriate for me to comment on a Hamilton City Council decision and how they went about it,” Mr McKay said yesterday. The Hamilton decision mirrors the one in Ashburton in 2002, when councillors voted to remove fluoride. The decision was supported by the results of a community referendum some years later, showing a 55 percent majority wanting to keep it out of the supply. Fluoridation remains in Methven however, where the status quo was supported by a community poll in 2008. Mr McKay said he believed fluoride boosted dental health, and had done personally for him as he grew up in rural Methven as a child. “My mother fortunately gave me fluoride tablets because we lived in a rural area, and I have been most grateful to her for that,” Mr McKay said. Mr McKay could not see the issue being revisited in Mid Canterbury, with both Methven and Ashburton having made their decisions within recent years. However, residents brought matters to the council from time to time on a range of issues. Additionally councillors themselves could put issues before the council by putting a “notice of motion” at council meetings on any matter.

By Sue Newman The number of new houses built in the Ashburton District over the past year has increased by 45 per cent. For the year to April 30, consents were issued for 243 new homes, with a total value of $73.283 million. For the same period to April 30, 2012 consents were issued for just 168 houses valued at $50.245 million. While that massive increase in activity was great for the district and the building industry, for the Ashburton District Council’s building department that meant a huge workload, said district councillor John Leadley. “It’s not easy to resource any

Parishioners keen to save Council website to be revamped Baring Square church By Susan Sandys The Baring Square Methodist Church may be saved, say parishioners. Having faced an uncertain future since the September 4, 2010, earthquake, parishioners are now holding a series of meetings to look at options. Property officer Allan Tweed said an insurance payout, for a sum he would not disclose, would be available as of next month. “I don’t think there’s any doubt that our church can be repaired, it’s not fallen into a heap of bricks or anything like that. It’s not physically impossible to fix the church.” “There’s a lot of emotion attached to that building, the thought of pushing it over is difficult for people, there’s a resistance to that.” The parish held its first meeting on the issue,

New houses up by 45 per cent business that has a 45 per cent change in its workload, particularly in this area where buildings now require around 13 inspections,” he said. The council’s building services department has been short staffed for several months and that had put pressure on staff to issue consents within the statutory time frame of 20 days. To cope with demand an in-house contractor has been used. The big increase in consents also meant a huge increase in inspections during construction, with the council’s three inspectors averaging 7.7 inspections per day in April, including 40 code compliance certificate inspections for new dwellings.

The council had been criticised for not having all consents issued and inspections carried out within the required timeframe, but Mr Leadley said in spite of being short staffed most deadlines were met most of the time. For the year to April 30 the council issued 1222 building consents with a total value of $141.248 million. For the same period to April 30, 2012, 1105 consents were issued with a total value of $111.466 million.

attended by about 50 parishioners last month. Its next meeting would be on June 26. There were various cost options for repairing and strengthening the church, ranging upwards from over $1 million. If it was to be repaired and strengthened, the parish would somehow have to justify bringing the landmark early 20th century building back to its “former glory”. The parish would perhaps like to see the community involved in the church’s use in future, and there was also the possibility of a community fundraising project. Parishioners have been holding their Sunday service in a worship space in the church’s adjoining hall, since the 2010 earthquake damaged the building. Christmas 2013 will be the fourth Christmas parishioners have not had use of the church. However, Mr Tweed hoped at least by then the parish will have made a decision on its future.

As part of improving its communications with residents, the Ashburton District Council is revamping its website. That revamp, however, doesn’t come cheaply and it has voted itself an additional $12,500 in its budget for next year to buy photographic services. While there were plenty of scenic images available, council community planning officer Gavin Thomas told district councillors that the website needed to show people using a range of council services and facilities too. As councillors deliberated over submissions on their annual plan, he asked for extra money for this work. The $12,500 he was granted will also be used to market the council’s website to encourage people to use its on-line services. The council is making an increasing number of its services available on-line. Dog registration is now available on line and by the end of this year, rates accounts will be available by email.

Leaky building needs rebuild Borough another leaky school By Myles Hume One of Ashburton Borough’s highly-prized buildings will be pulled down and completely rebuilt. Principal Sam Winterbourn said the Ministry of Education confirmed the school’s administration block would be demolished and rebuilt after the building had a serious water leakage problem. The block is considered one of the school’s “most creative” buildings by Mr Winterbourn, who is saddened to find the building, which contains his office, will be demolished, with plans to pull it down as early as next month. He did not know the cost of the rebuild, but agreed it would be “in the hundreds of thousands”. It also comes after Longbeach School principal Neil Simons spoke to the Guardian in April about his school’s $300,000 leaky building repair bill for the school’s newest block – built in 2000. Mr Winterbourn said there appeared to be a raft of problems with the building. “There were design, material, build and regulation problems,” he said. “We are just one of many, and I think sadly the reality is many

buildings built within that timeframe eight to 10 years go are subject to leaky building problems.” The school noticed problems a while ago after a skylight continued to leak whenever it rained heavily. The school thought it was a glazing issue and had it repaired but that never fixed the entire problem. Mr Winterbourn said the magnitude of the problem became evident last year when earthquake assessors were checking internal cracks in the block, soon realising they had emerged as a result of the water damage. Mr Winterbourn said it was frustrating to know the school would temporarily lose its hub, and finding a replacement building while the new one would be rebuilt was “proving to be difficult”. But it was up to the ministry to solve that problem, he said. About two months ago the Ministry of Education revealed it had taken legal action against building product companies over leaky school buildings. The ministry is already fighting 100 leaky building claims in court, and is currently repairing about 800 buildings at 300 schools. The ministry has put the cost for all remedial work at $1.5 billion for leaky school buildings.

Residents’ would notice little difference but the change was necessary to meet drinking water standards, Mr Totty said. He suggested that the council should pay 10 per cent of the upgrade costs, $28,000, from general rates.

Debate over water bill Health scholarship Just because the health sector changes the rules, small communities shouldn’t be forced to foot the bill for water supply upgrades, says Ashburton District councillor Alan Totty. New drinking water standards meant the Mt Somers’ supply had to be upgraded and in this year’s council annual plan, that had added an extra $163 to rates bills. He suggested the council should be shouldering some of the costs. Mt Somers was the last of the district’s rural townships to have its water supply upgraded. Unlike some,

NZ First MPs and Labour’s Trevor Mallard have walked out of Parliament in protest after Speaker David Carter allowed United Future MP Peter Dunne to keep the extra funding and entitlements that come with being a party leader, despite the deregistration of his party. Mr Carter announced that decision yesterday, but both Labour and NZ First objected, saying if Mr Dunne’s party was not registered then it clearly did not meet the rules required for those resources. Labour MP Trevor Mallard also described the decision as a “farce” and when asked to apologise, he refused and opted to leave the Debating Chamber. After objecting, NZ First leader Winston Peters said that if Mr Carter did not produce the legal advice he based his decision on, then his party would boycott Parliament until that happened. His caucus then left Parliament after the Speaker refused to discuss the matter further, beyond saying he had received advice on it before making the decision. Earlier, Mr Mallard had argued that as well as extra funding, party leaders held certain positions, such as membership on the important Business Committee, which Mr Dunne should no longer be entitled to. Mr Mallard said it was the wrong decision because Parliamentary

Dunne decision sparks walkout



my youngest daughter was diagnosed as dyslexic, that point was rammed home. Not only did I sit on three different school BOTs, I was involved in countless Individual Education Programme (IEP) meetings, and got to know many awesome teachers at the chalk face. On the odd occasion that our paths cross nowadays they are, without exception, interested in where she is today. The result of our combined effort is a well-educated, well-

A man accused of spraying swastikas and offensive statements on Jewish graves told police he was drunk when he and a friend decided to go out tagging and he is not antiSemitic, a court has heard. Christian Landmark, 20, was charged with being a party to intentional damage after it was discovered the gravestones in a central Auckland cemetery were defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti and swastikas in october last year. In a police interview played at his trial in Auckland District Court, Landmark initially told Detective Sergeant Phillip Cox he had been shown a photo of the graffiti by a friend but said he didn’t know anything about the man responsible except that his name was “Rob”. But after Mr Cox said police had spoken to a friend of Landmark’s, he suddenly came clean. “Ok, I think we should restart the interview. It wasn’t me who

I think in the graveyard where me and Chris were - a Jewish graveyard - a swastika was the first thing that came to mind in terms of being offensive ... I’m pretty sure he was thinking the same thing

did it. I was there at the time, I was absolutely drunk at the time, out of my mind with Rob.” He said he thought the graffiti was “stupid” and he was not anti-Semitic. “I would have told you everything but I felt bad for him but, man, I’ve had a shitty day.” Landmark admitted being at the graveyard but said it was Rob who did the tagging. “I didn’t realise the severity of his views until he went and did that.” Earlier the court heard from Rob, whose full name is Robert Moulden. He said he and Landmark had been drinking at their inner-city hostel when they decided to go out tagging.

Moulden told the court there was no plan to tag the Jewish gravestones but that’s where they ended up. “I’d say it was Chris’ idea but it was probably 50/50.” He said they took turns spraypainting the graves and at one point Landmark took pictures. But under cross-examination from Landmark’s lawyer Tudor Clee, he confirmed that Landmark did not suggest spray-painting swastikas. “I think in the graveyard where me and Chris were - a Jewish graveyard - a swastika was the first thing that came to mind in terms of being offensive ... I’m pretty sure he was thinking the same thing.” Mr Clee also took him through

a number of text messages sent between the pair on the days following the graffiti attack. In one of the messages, Moulden texted Landmark telling him: “awesome derailment of all the shit you call ‘fascist fantasy bullshit’.” Moulden agreed that his message implied Landmark did not believe in fascism but did not recall sending the message and could not be sure what he meant. Mr Clee also asked about a text message Moulden sent to Landmark after Landmark tried to sell photos of the graffiti to the media. Moulden texted him saying: “How dare you hijack my shit for money”. Mr Clee pointed out that Moulden was claiming ownership for the attack. But Moulden said he was referring to his identity. “... It would have clearly endangered me and I would’ve been in trouble.” The hearing - before Judge Russell Collins - is expected to conclude today. - APNZ

Ministry backs down over violent student By Kieran Campbell and Rebecca Quilliam The Ministry of Education has backed down from forcing a Paeroa school to re-enrol a 10-year-old student who the school says is a threat to staff and other children. The ministry had given Paeroa Central School until today to lift the exclusion on the boy, who was forced to leave last year for assaulting a teacher and threatening young pupils by telling them he would “cut them up with a knife”. It said the student was “legally required to be enrolled, and his local school offers the best chance he has for gaining the stability he needs”. The school’s principal Janet

Jones said they would defy that order and an urgent meeting was arranged for today between ministry officials and the school’s board of trustees. However, yesterday afternoon, the ministry’s special education group manager Brian Coffey said the boy would not be re-enrolled without the school agreeing to that course of action. “We know this boy has some serious behaviour issues and that the concerns of the school and parents are quite genuine,” he said. “Our plan is to have the boy attend the Thames Valley Alternative Education Centre, where he will get specialist support that will also be available to him at home. “We had hoped to be able

to enrol him again at Paeroa Central and to transition him slowly back into that school as progress was made. “But we will not do that without the agreement of the school.” The ministry wanted to ensure that the outcome had the “buy-in” from all concerned, Mr Coffey said. “We will continue to work with the school, the boy’s family and all other relevant agencies, including the police and Child Youth and Family, to ensure he gets the opportunity he needs in a way that secures the safety of the people around him.” Mrs Jones said the child had attended 14 schools and had a history of violence, including trying to assault a staff member with a cricket bat at his last

school. She said the advice from a psychologist involved in the boy’s care was that he would “be a danger at whatever school he is in”. Earlier yesterday she said the ministry was putting the rights of one child over the rights of 85 others. She said the ministry, which had offered extra funding of $34,000 a year to support the student, was letting down her school and the troubled youngster by wanting him re-enrolled at Paeroa Central. The ministry had told the school it was denying the boy a right to education, and Education Minister Hekia Parata had declined to get involved, Mrs Jones said. - APNZ

rules required a party to be registered with the Electoral Commission for those entitlements to apply. His colleague David Parker said if United Future was not registered, then in effect Mr Dunne and independent MP Brendon Horan should be treated the same. Winston Peters had said the Speaker should have acted as soon as the Electoral Commission advised that the party was no longer registered. Leader of the House Gerry Brownlee said Mr Dunne was elected as a party leader in 2011 and was entitled to continue to be recognised as such. Mr Carter said he accepted that the points made were genuine, but said he had made his decision. On the way out of Parliament, Mr Dunne told reporters that MPs had to have confidence in the Speaker’s decisions. “If you lose confidence in the Speaker then frankly you start to lose confidence in the whole system.” Asked about Mr Peters’ and Mr Mallard’s actions this afternoon, Mr Dunne dismissed it as “just game playing and I think they should answer for their behaviour”. “I think the public will look at them and say these are children playing children’s games.” -APNZ

Denniston mine appeal thrown out By Kurt Bayer Conservationists fighting a decision to allow an Australian mining company to dig for coal on the West Coast’s Denniston Plateau have suffered a major setback yesterday with a High Court appeal being thrown out. The Royal Forest & Bird Protection Society was appealing against interim resource consent given to Bathurst Resources Limited for an 188ha open-cast mine on the plateau near Westport. It had argued that the Environment Court did not give proper consideration to the possibility of there being two open-cast coal mines simultaneously working the area when it gave Bathurst the go-ahead. The environmental watchdog said the effects of an unimplemented coal mining licence by state-owned Solid Energy for another mine, the Sullivan Mine, also on the Denniston Plateau, should have been taken into account, even though it’s not been used and expires in 2027. The cumulative effect of both mines operating at the same time were not properly considered, it claimed. Buller Coal Limited, owned by Bathurst Resources Ltd, reject-

ed the environmentalists’ “narrow” argument, as did West Coast Regional Council and Buller District Council, which granted mine consents to Buller Coal last year. In a 21-page judgement released yesterday, High Court judge Justice John concluded there was “no material error of law in this decision not to embark upon cumulative effect analysis.” The appeal was dismissed, and costs were reserved. The judge is expected to announce a decision on further points relating to the plateau’s biodiversity appealed in the High Court today, and a further hearing of the Environment Court appeal is scheduled for June 12. Forest & Bird said it was disappointed with the High Court’s decision but vowed to fight on. “No one’s denying that mining Denniston will cause irreversible damage to the plateau’s unique landscapes and vital habitats,” said spokeswoman Debs Martin. “And the judge said in his decision we had put forward a very powerful proposition ... that if cumulative effects are not considered now, they never will be. “So while we may have lost on this one point, we still have a very strong case in the Environment Court to save the plateau.” -APNZ

• Bieber’s returning

By Abigail Hartevelt Hundreds of people have farewelled a 14-year-old girl killed in a fire at a Rotorua factory following a party. More than 700 people, including students and teachers from Western Heights High School gathered at Tunohopu Marae yesterday morning to say goodbye to Mihinui Tamiana, who died on Sunday morning. Mihinui’s casket was covered with photographs and surrounded by flowers. Family and friends sat around the casket at the front of the wharenui during the service. Ngati Whakaue kaumatua Pihopa Kingi said there had been many tributes earlier that day and the previous night and yesterday’s service was about laying Mihinui’s body to rest. “This is a friendly reminder of the tragedy that occurred for you as you grow and become mature and adults to be careful, to care for yourself and others and consider the best options for you as you grow because you are going to be leaders of Maoridom and the community,” Mr Kingi said. Mihinui’s uncle Peter Tamiana said Mihinui had a message for her family and friends. “Don’t grieve for me. I’ve been called by the father. I’ve been called to go home ... Don’t cry for me ... If I left a broken heart it’s OK, we will meet again.” About 100 Western Heights High School sung He Honore as a tribute to Mihinui. As the casket was taken to the

Mihinui Tamiana hearse, Western Heights High School students and others performed two haka before Mihinui’s body was taken to Pukepoto Urupa for burial. Rotorua police are continuing their investigation into the fire. Detective Senior Sergeant Zane Smith said they were yet to speak to some people, including a male who suffered burns in the fire and is in a stable condition in Waikato Hospital. A friend of Mihinui said she believed a Molotov cocktail was thrown into the building. However, Mr Smith said yesterday they were yet to speak to anyone who saw any sort of Molotov cocktail being used. “As of yet there is no physical evidence that supports a Molotov cocktail being used.” - APNZ

Kiwi shoppers have ‘foulest mouths’ Kiwi shoppers have the foulest mouths when rating products online, a global survey has found. New Zealanders are quick to rubbish high-tech gadgets like laptops and tablets as being “crap”. Since the start of last year, 1.61 per cent of reviews from New Zealand on international social commenting platform Reevoo were rejected for swearing, ahead of Russia at 1.06 per cent. A typical Kiwi example, Reevoo said, was: “Windows 8! Crap!” The study also found that Romanian, Czech and Russianspeaking people tended to swear more than English, French and Spanish speakers. Consumers in Finland and Japan wrote the cleanest reviews. Reevoo said of the 1.5 million selected reviews from 90 countries, the most colourful language was reserved for describing mobile phones, laptops, tablets and travel services. “It’s as much down to consumer passion as opposed to products themselves,” founder of Reevoo, Richard Anson told the New York Daily News.   – APNZ

down 27c or 3.6 per cent. Both hit a low of $7.15 earlier in the day. As of June 1, farmers’ requirement to hold shares based on their production moved from a fixed number to a three-year rolling average. For many farmers, that meant a significant increase in the number of dry shares which they are able to sell. While the change took place on June 1, it took until yesterday for the share register to be updated, and brokers could not trade with farmers until they had confirmed the details on the register. Yesterday’s selling also coincided with sharp declines on world share markets

and seasonal factors – farm transactions are normally settled at around this time of year. One fund manager said the popularity of last month’s so called “supply” offer, which enabled farmers to sell economic rights to their wet, or production-based, shares back to Fonterra, showed there was plenty of interest by farmers to sell. Mint Asset Management portfolio manager Shane Solly said yesterday was the first meaningful time for farmers to use the system. “This is going to be a test of the

scheme and it should work to provide a liquidity mechanism for the farmers,” he said. “And that’s exactly what it’s there for,” he said. Goldman Sachs institutional broker Peter Sigley said increased activity in the units came at a time of general market weakness. “The over-riding factor from our perspective is that the market is weak at the moment and it has been a day when there is more activity in the stock than you would expect outside this seasonal period,” he said. Most farm transactions occur on

June 1 – the start of the new season – so after this date farmers who have sold farms are free to sell any shares attached to those farms. It is also a time when farmers change suppliers, meaning they are no longer required to hold Fonterra shares. Some brokers last week trimmed their short-term earnings forecasts for Fonterra because of ongoing strength in dairy prices and what they expect to be higher costs associated with the launch of new products in China. The Fonterra units last month hit their highest-ever –APNZ point of $8.09 each.

New Zealand dollar drops to below US79c By Paul McBeth The New Zealand dollar touched below 79 US cents for the first time since July last year as investors continued to spurn the trans-Tasman currencies with US employment figures today set to firm up views on whether the Federal Reserve will start winding back its money-printing programme. The kiwi fell as low as 78.99 cents, trading at 79.09 US cents at 5pm in Wellington from 80.03 cents at 8am and 79.48 cents on Wednesday. The trade-weighted index sank to 74.41 from 75.45 on Wednesday. Investors have continued to rally behind the greenback on the growing expectation the Fed will start unwind-

ing its $US85 billion a month bond buying programme. Non-farm payrolls today in Washington is seen as a barometer of the central bank’s appetite for tapering off the scheme, with chairman Ben Bernanke linking a drop in the jobless rate to tighter monetary policy. A Bloomberg survey of economists are picking 167,000 jobs were added to the world’s biggest economy last month. “If we get a strong non-farm payrolls all eyes will be on the Fed,” said Tim Kelleher, head of institutional FX sales NZ at ASB Institutional. “The Fed Funds rate is not going to move, and if they taper the bond buying, there’s still the yield advantage” for the kiwi, he said. Kelleher said the kiwi has support at 78.50 US cents, and will probably follow its Australian counterpart lower,

though at a slower pace. The Australian dollar fell to 94.46 US cents from 96.40 cents on Wednesday after government figures showed a smaller than expected trade surplus in April, a day after official data showed slower growth than economists were anticipating. The kiwi gained to 83.71 Australian cents from 83.41 cents on Wednesday. The European Central Bank and Bank of England review monetary policy yesterady, and are both expected to keep their benchmark rates unchanged. The kiwi dropped to 60.31 euro cents from 61.46 cents yesterday, and declined to 51.33 British pence from 52.50 pence. The local currency fell to 78.40 yen from 80.21 yen on Wednesday.   – APNZ

Good quality NZ rams in demand over the ditch By Ben Chapman-Smith A New Zealand red meat genetics company has sent two air shipments of live rams and more than 1000 embryos to Australia this year to meet growing demand for Kiwi sheep. Hawkes Bay-based Focus Genetics – which carries out research and development into producing superior sheep, cattle and deer – flew 34 live rams across the Tasman in March and another 103 last month. Animal breeding specialist Daniel Absolom said demand for high-quality New Zealand rams in Australia had grown quickly in the past year. The company, which also sent sheep

last year, had a long-term plan to establish New Zealand sheep genetics in the Australian market, he said. “New Zealand is 15 years ahead of Australia in research and development. Focus Genetics went through the trial and error process years ago. Now its sheep breeds are tried and true and producing top results.” Focus has partnered with Victoriabased genetics company Paringa Livestock, which supplies bulls and rams for the country’s beef and lamb producers. All rams sent to Paringa are Primera and Highlander breeds and the animals travel in the hold of normal scheduled passenger flights in crates capable of fitting about 33 -35 ram lambs

or 55-60 full-grown rams. During the flight, rams were fed water, grain and hay and strict animal welfare protocols had to be followed, Absolom said. Sending animals by air was a quicker method of travel than by sea, making it cheaper and less taxing on the sheep, he said. Paringa livestock director Tom Lawson said demand for quality New Zealand sheep was growing because their lambs had better survival rates in extreme drought conditions. “This year we have seen one of the worst droughts on record in Australia. During tough times farmers want top genetics. They don’t want to take any risks.” The results from the Primera and

Highlander sheep over the past two years had been “phenomenal”, Lawson said. “Although we are still in the early stages we are seeing proven results, so there has been a big rush from farmers to buy more.” Focus recently exported about 1300 embryos as part of a plan to meet future demand without having to keep sending live animals. Absolom said sending embryos was a more cost-effective way to build a domestic supply. “The live rams are a means to an end. We’re effectively setting up the ‘manufacturing plant’ in Australia but to do that, we first need to send the product in its finished state.”  – APNZ

The Braebrook story continues...


Flooding claims 12th victim Central Europe’s worst floods in over a decade have claimed a 12th victim as torrents of muddy water surge down swollen rivers through the Czech Republic and into Germany, flooding villages and forcing mass evacuations. The huge volumes of water from heavy spring rains coming down the Danube and Elbe river systems also sparked mass mobilisations in Austria and threatened future inundations as far away as Budapest. Eastern Germany, where vast

areas are already under water, braced for worse to come after the Elbe rose above eight metres, six metres higher than usual, with the crest yet to arrive. About 40,000 firefighters, 5000 troops, including hundreds of French and Dutch soldiers, and thousands of volunteers across the country have struggled to prevent major disaster. “We have to expect the very worst,” Till Backhaus, environment minister of MecklenburgPomerania state told German

news wire DPA. “We have to be ready for a highly difficult and complex situation.” In the city of Halle, where Elbe tributary the Saale reached its highest level in 400 years and started soaking through dykes, authorities told 30,000 people to evacuate. The widespread floods in central Europe, which have turned villages into islands, were the worst since 2002 when scores of people were killed. Homes, businesses and crops

have been destroyed, road and rail links severed and vast areas left without power and drinking water. In the Czech Republic, where eight people have perished, some villages can only be reached by boat. In Germany – where, ironically, the skies were clear after weeks of frequent rain – defences were strengthened around the historical city centre of Dresden, a world heritage site that was badly hit by 2002 floods.  – AFP

ARIES (Mar 21st Apr 20th) Neptune turns retrograde today. This happens yearly so the location this dreamy influence occupies is very important to how it will impact upon us. In your case it urges you not to ignore the more sensitive side of your nature or needs. Don’t poohpooh this, thinking it will show your vulnerability, for in fact the reverse is true.

TAURUS (Apr 21st May 21st) Mercury and Pluto go face to face and this could bring out a side of you that is part of your astral stereotype, namely that you can be very stubborn. Personally you may not feel that this applies to you, only to other Taurus folk. But if someone challenges your point of view on something today, the ferocity of your response could surprise you.

A huge mako shark caught off the coast of California could set a record, but a critic said it should have been released because sharks are threatened worldwide. Jason Johnston caught the 600-kilogram shark on Tuesday after a 2½-hour battle, the Orange County Register reported. “I’ve hunted lions and brown bears, but I’ve never experienced anything like this,” Johnston told the newspaper. “It felt like I had a one-ton diesel truck at the end of the line, and it wasn’t budging.” If the catch is confirmed and meets conditions, it would exceed the record mako catch made in 2001 off Massachusetts, said Jack Vitek, world records co-ordinator for the International Game Fish Association. The shark should have been released, argued David McGuire, director of the California-based protection advocacy group Shark Stewards. “People should be viewing these sharks as wonderful animals that are important to the ocean and admiring how beautiful they are” rather than “spilling their blood and guts”, McGuire told the Times. Only 23 of the 6850 world records on file with the game association involve fish topping 590kg, Vitek said. The largest catch was a 1200kg great white shark that was taken in 1959 off the Australian coast. The shark was being kept on ice and will be donated to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association for research.


GEMINI (May 22nd Jun 21st) Possessions, money and materialism! However idealistic we are, they are important, and you might find yourself needing to protect your position around these today. Resist any demands for instant payments or to join any kind of scheme. Also give telephone cold-callers short shrift. It would be a good idea to check bank statements.

whether the good will ever outweigh the bad. It certainly didn’t today.” Van Houten was convicted of murder and conspiracy for her role in the slayings of wealthy Los Angeles grocers Leno and

Rosemary La Bianca. They were stabbed to death in August 1969, one night after Manson’s followers killed actress Sharon Tate and four others. Van Houten was 19 at the time. Van Houten did not partici-

pate in the Tate killings but went along the next night when the La Biancas were slain in their home. During the penalty phase of her trial she confessed to joining in stabbing Mrs La Bianca after she was dead. “I know I did something that is unforgiveable, but I can create a world where I make amends,” Van Houten said before the decision. With survivors of the LaBiancas sitting behind her at the California Institution for Women, Van Houten acknowledged participating in the killings ordered by Manson. “He could never have done what he did without people like me,” said Van Houten, who has been in custody for 44 years. The ruling came after a fullday hearing at which six representatives of the La Bianca family spoke in anguish about – AP the loss of the couple. 

LEO (Jul 24th - Aug 23rd) You might not care to admit it, at least not to just any old person, but someone could seriously get under your skin today. If you have more scope to control who you come into contact with, steer clear of anyone who, at the best times, can irritate you. Try to look after your nervous system. An early night can make a lot of sense.

Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris is “doing fine” according to her uncles, after an apparent suicide attempt. A lawyer for Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine has requested privacy for the family as the King of Pop’s daughter recovers in hospital. The teenager was reportedly stretchered out of her Calabasas, California home yesterday after paramedics responded to an emergency call regarding “a possible overdose”. Paris Jackson’s biological mum, Debbie Rowe, has since revealed to US news show Entertainment Tonight that her girl was “rushed to the hospital with cuts on her wrist”, adding that she has had “a lot going on”.  – WENN

VIRGO (Aug 24th Sep 23rd) You can’t please all of the people all of the time, and it is worth bearing this in mind today, when someone could easily be put out by what you say or want to do. This may even be a friend who has a different idea of how the weekend plans should pan out. Be diplomatic but ultimately you will need to make your mind up.

LIBRA (Sep 24th Oct 23rd) You often play the role of the diplomat and may be called upon to do so today. The situation may be as simple and timehonoured as a clash between the generations. Then again you may find that work or worldy demands get in the way of your plans to enjoy some quality down time. Today’s trends may, therefore, see you swept off course.

SCORPIO (Oct 24th - Nov 22nd) Do you enjoy holding court? If you are someone who has strong views or is passionate about what you believe in, then today can certainly be a platform for airing your feelings. Just watch the faces of your listeners Scorpio, because although they may not say anything, if their eyes wander, it may be a clue they feel you are falling prey to dogma.

An 84-year -old Florida woman has claimed the $US590 million ($A614.5 million) US Powerball lottery, making her the winner of the largest unshared jackpot in US history. Gloria Mackenzie’s name was divulged at a press conference in Tallahassee yesterday, ending two weeks of fevered speculation in the Sunshine State when no-one came forward following the May 18 drawing for one of the largest lotteries ever. The elderly Mackenzie perhaps wisely opted to take a lump-sum cash payment of $US370.9 million, rather than receive the full winnings spread – AFP out over 30 years. 

• Building collapse A four-storey apartment building has collapsed onto a smaller structure in the US city of Philadelphia, killing one person and injuring 13 others, officials say. The smaller, twostorey edifice was a Salvation Army store. The cause of the collapse not far from city hall was not immediately known, but authorities said it appeared to have been an industrial accident. “Thirteen people have been recovered and transferred to hospitals. Unfortunately, we have one confirmed fatality,” a Philadelphia Police Department spokesman said, adding that the victim was a woman. – AFP

• Soldier pleads guilty A US soldier has pleaded guilty to killing 16 Afghan villagers last year, as he faced a military hearing hoping to escape a death sentence. Sergeant Robert Bales, 39, pleaded guilty to 16 counts of murder over the massacre in southern Afghanistan in March last year. His lawyer said last week he would admit guilt in exchange for prosecutors not seeking his execution. Bales was flanked by lawyers in a packed courtroom at Joint Base Lewis-McChord south of Seattle in Washington state, where he has been held pending court martial proceedings. Seventeen of the 22 victims were women or children and almost all were shot in the head. Prosecutors called in November for him to face the death penalty, setting a provisional date for court-martial in – AFP September. 

“It’s why more people are choosing McGregors”


CANCER (Jun 22nd - Jul 23rd) Your reputation for avoiding confrontation may be tested. It’s not that you will necessarily go looking for grief as much as it may seem to look for you. This can come in the guise of one very powerful individual intent on telling you how it will be. That you can deal with. Telling you how you will be is what can raise your hackles.

Parole denied for Manson follower A parole panel refused an emotional bid by former Charles Manson follower Leslie Van Houten to release her from prison 44 years after she participated in a notorious set of murders. The denial came at the 63-year-old’s 20th parole hearing yesterday, where the panel heard from relatives of the victims who were opposed to her release. Board of Parole Hearings Commissioner Jeffrey Ferguson told Van Houten she had failed to explain how someone as intelligent and well-bred as she was could have committed the “cruel and atrocious” murders of Leno and Rosemary La Bianca. She won’t be eligible to ask for parole again for five years, but Ferguson said she could request another hearing sooner if circumstances change. “The crimes will always be a factor,” he said. “The question is

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23rd - Dec 21st) Your values are something you can rightly hold dear, but they are uniquely yours and are not there to serve anyone else. The trick today is to recognise that, should you meet someone who is just as in touch with theirs, that this is their perfect right. Put simply, agree to disagree and you can get all the more out of the day.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd - Jan 20th) ‘Know your own strength’ is today’s top tip for you Capricorn. Even if you don’t think that you are a forceful character, if you encounter a more timid soul than you just be conscious that all sorts of power dynamics can be played out, however unintentionally. That said, if you need to stand up for yourself, you can do so with aplomb.

AQUARIUS (Jan 21st - Feb 19th) There could be a tendency to pick up on what’s said to you and fear that it is meant unkindly and that someone is having a sly dig. You need to reassure yourself. Your validation should come from within. If need be, withdraw from others and look to pursue your own interests. Reading up on health issues could appeal.


PISCES (Feb 20th Mar 20th) If you are in a longterm relationship but want to spend some time with friends, it could be the source of some politics today. Then again, if you have recently met someone you really like, a pal may not like it if you are preoccupied with them. Therefore, good time management is the clue to handling today’s astral trends well.

Ensure your fence won’t cause offence I

f you want to build a fence between your property and your neighbour’s you don’t need to argue forever about how it should be done or who will pay. The Fencing Act sets out your rights and obligations. Yes, due to heated arguments about who will pay for what, and where ones boundary sits, there has been the need to constitute an act all about fencing. As petty as they seem, boundary and fence disputes are actually reasonably common in New Zealand as broadcasted on television programmes such as Neighbours at War, however few disputes ever proceed to court. A dispute between neighbours can upset relationships and lead to discomfort and unhappiness. Remembering that you have to live next door to your neighbor usually means that most disputes are managed in a civil manner, fair to both parties concerned, but for those niggling arguments that just can’t be settled, the Fencing Act comes into play to lay down the law. Mick Strack, a lecturer and PhD candidate at the School of Surveying, University of Otago, paraphrases the Fencing Act as follows; The Fencing Act 1978 (s22) states that “the middle of the fence shall be upon the boundary line…or as near thereto as practicable.” It states quite categorically that “no person is entitled to erect a fence that encroaches to any degree whatever upon any land of which he is not the occupier.” (s8), but then continues in less absolute terms, that the Court can order the removal of any encroaching fence unless it is satisfied “(a) that the

degree of encroachment is minimal; and (b) that the encroachment in no way adversely affects the use and enjoyment of his land by the applicant.”* So in most cases the fence will determine the property boundary. But what can you do if you discover that an error has been made and in fact the fence is encroaching onto a large proportion of your land? An encroachment can occur when a building or a fence is over the boundary. This is technically a trespass for which the encroaching owner is legally responsible, whether or not they erected the building or fence. It is their responsibility to pay for the fence to be re-erected in the correct area as stated on the building plans showing your land. However if this was not the fault of the neighbour and they had no idea that they have encroached onto your land, a fairer resolution may be to offer to pay half the cost of getting the fence moved. After all, it is your land you are gaining, and from their perspective, they are losing land they believed they owned. If the dispute can not be handled in a civil manner, then seek advice from your lawyer. They have the expertise to be able to recommend the most effective course of action, which will hopefully result in the matter being resolved while maintaining friendly neighbourhood relations. In the case of constructing a fence where there is not currently a fence, the Fencing Act states that both property owners are liable to share the costs

of your agreement).

Introduce yourself to the neighbour and be prepared to come up with a realistic proposal. A fence might be needed to serve several purposes; privacy, protection from wind and weather, to keep animals in or out, or provide an aesthetic backdrop. Don’t expect your neighbour to automatically have the same ideas on taste, or budget.

If the legality of it all is too complex and you would rather not enter a dispute with your neighbour you can simply build a fence inside the boundary on your own property. But you will have to pay for all of it yourself. And even then, your neighbour could still insist on a boundary fence at a later stage.

Discuss your plans with your neighbour before you start putting in the fence-posts, though, and try to keep the proposal reasonable. They are entitled to object if they disagree about what is appropriate. If you can not reach an agreement, or your neighbour refuses to pay half, there is a formal process you can follow. First, you must serve your neighbour with a “fencing notice”. A fencing notice is a formal proposal to your neighbour which describes the fencing work you would like done (the cost of which you want your neighbour to contribute). It has to specify the boundary along which work is to be done, the nature of the work (e.g. if it’s a new fence, what it will look like) and the materials used. The notice has to state an estimate of the cost of the work, and how those costs are to be shared (which depends on the circumstances

It must also tell your neighbour that they have 21 days to object, and that if they don’t object within this period they will be deemed to have consented to the work. Seek advice from your lawyer to make sure all legal rights of the notice are satisfied. If your neighbour objects, they must serve you with a crossnotice within the given 21 day time frame.

If your neighbour damages your fence, they are fully liable for the cost of repairs. You do not have to contribute if they are liable for damages. However if the fence is damaged by a natural event such as a storm or an earthquake, then both neighbour’s are equally liable for the cost of replacement or repair. Make sure you do your homework before you get stuck with a property with problem boundaries. When you’re on the market to purchase a new property ensure that your due diligence homework involves a detailed assessment of the state of the existing fences at the property. And before you declare war with your neighbour, put yourself in their shoes and try to resolve any issue in a civil manner. A few planks of wood really isn’t worth getting into a heated argument over. *source:

of erecting a fence, as long as the cost is reasonable for fulfilling the duty it was intended to do. In other words, if you want an extravagant fence but your neighbour can’t afford it, they are only liable of half of the cost of an adequate fence. Any desired improvements will need to be at your own cost. You do not require a building permit to construct a fence, provided it is less than two metres in height, as stipulated by your local council by-laws.

anterbury’s ability to survive the 2013 drought in a better shape than many other rural New Zealand regions was an important factor in underwriting farm values across the province - as outlined in the latest Real Estate Institute of New Zealand figures.



On a $/per hectare rate for Canterbury farms sold in April, arable land sold at $38,960 per hectare (up from $30,975 in April last year); dairy land sold for $45,283 per hectare (up from $44,080 in April last year) and finishing land sold for $26,633 per hectare (up from $21,936 in April last year).

Grazing units accounted for the biggest number of farms sold in Canterbury, with 27 properties in that category changing hands, while there were nine dairy units and seven finishing blocks sold.

While dollar values per hectare were generally up slightly, the number of farms sold in the region was down on this time last year – 49 in April 2013 compared to 66 in the same month last year – although this year’s figure is up on 2011 for example. If 2012 is viewed as a “catch-up” spike, what we are seeing now is a steadier, albeit somewhat less spectacular, level in the number of sales.

Logs, apples and wool were all in the positives too. The current state of the index bodes well for establishing sustainable rural real estate values. With bank lending rates still at bargain basement levels, buying farms has now become a pure matter of supply and demand – and for the meantime, there simply isn’t enough stock out there in the market place to satisfy buyer demand.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, June 7, 2013

Home is where the heat is W

inter is dark, cold, long and expensive, at least where heating a home is concerned. It’s the time of year when our energy bills and greenhouse gas emissions go sky high. Energy costs are rising across the board, and defending every dollar we spend on heat has never been more important. As the dreaded electricity bill arrives, we begin to contemplate the best ways to save money and still keep the house at a comfortable temperature. Thankfully, there are a number of ways to curb heating costs and most are easy to implement. We all need to keep warm, but we can do it in a greener, cleaner, more affordable way. Using the following methods, you will be able to have a warmer home and save money at the same time.

Cover your cracks I don’t mean pull up your jeans and buy a belt, although that would certainly assist keeping your derriere delightfully warmer. Doors and windows are the two prime locations for drafts in any home. This is especially true in homes with older windows and doors. If you added up all the space in your home where air could get in or out, often the space is equivalent to leaving the front door wide open. Not surprising this makes it extremely hard for your heating source to work effectively. You could be losing 15 to 25 percent of your heat through these open spaces. You can purchase rolls of self-adhesive rubber seals at any hardware store, use gap filler for cracks in the walls and if you have to, resort to rolling up your bath towels and putting them at the bottom of your exit doors to prevent heat escaping. It’s a small price to pay for retaining a large chunk of the heat you have already paid to create.

Drapes and carpet – the thicker the better A large percentage of your home’s heat is lost through your windows, especially if they are not double insulated. Heavy, lined curtains which extend below the window frame will insulate your windows and help keep the warmth in. Using heavier curtains will not only help to make a home feel a lot cosier; they also help to stop heat escaping through the windows. Ones with a proper thermal backing

are the best at making a noticeable difference. On a warm sunny day, open the curtains to let the natural warmth of the sun heat the inside of your home, and right when those golden beams are no longer having a warming effect and the temperature dips, close the curtains to hug the warmth, giving you a few free hours before the cold of night seeps in to chill the interior. Carpet can be an expensive addition, but definitely worth consideration for long-term warmth benefits. As a cheaper alternative, a thick rug can offer similar insulation properties and feel nicer underfoot on a chilly morning. Not just a design element to add a pop of colour in your living area, rugs add another layer of insulation to the floor, trapping the cool air underneath and keep it from seeping up and cooling the room. Concentrate on the rooms of your home that you use and heat most often and place a rug that covers most of the floor in these areas. Woolen is best, and as with carpet selection, the thicker or denser the weave, the better.

Furniture can’t feel the cold so why waste energy heating areas that you’re not using. Rooms such as guest bedrooms and storage rooms generally don’t need to be heated throughout the winter until guests arrive, so seal them up to save wasted heat escaping to large voids. Go one step further and consider if you really need to be using an additional room to perform a task that could be done elsewhere. Such as an office or a craft room. Consider moving the computer to the dining room table for a few months in winter to make the most of a living area which is already heated, rather than adding another room unnecessarily to the heating bill.

Gone are the days for most of us when we can afford to lounge around in our underwear while it’s frosty outside. Some evenings are more bitterly cold than others, especially following a cold dark day, and our heating sources may struggle to raise the temperature. If saving money is important to your financial situation, then concentrate on heating yourself rather than your home. Have a hot shower, put on an extra layer of clothes, have a filling hot meal and stay in one room that you

can concentrate on heating. Remember the important information your mum gave you about staying warm in winter – put some socks on, and since a lot of heat escapes through the top of our head, pop on a wooly hat to trap in every lasting piece of warmth. You may feel ridiculous, but if it keeps you warm, your bank account will thank you in the long run.

Fans aren’t just for cooling Ceiling fans are more prominent in hotter, tropical climates, but if you have one installed in your home, don’t forget that it can help to keep your room warmer in the winter. In preparation for colder weather, reverse the direction of airflow on your fans. Circulating the air back through the room will heat the room more evenly and ease the effort your heater needs to keep the room at a comfortable temperature. Counterclockwise rotation produces cooling breezes while switching to clockwise makes it warmer. Air which is warmer and hovering near the ceiling is circulated back into the living space; reducing the energy you need to spend on heating by up to an additional 10 percent.

When not in use, close it out.

covering Mid Canterbury...

Snug as a bug in insulation Insulation is a given to make any home warmer, but to do it all in one hit can be an expensive exercise. You may be eligible for an energy grant from the government to assist with these costs, but many families still can’t afford the initial outlay. Start small, and begin by wrapping anything you can. A cheaper place to start is by concentrating on maintaining the heat in your hot water pipes and cylinder. A hot water cylinder wrap is available from hardware stores for around $60 and is an effective way to keep the cylinder from losing too much heat. Check the temperature gauge on your cylinder to make sure it’s not running too hot, as this can substantially increase the cost of your hot water heating. The cylinder temperature should remain slightly hotter than 60 degrees Celsius to prevent the growth of Legionella bacteria, but any hotter than this is just a waste of energy. After the cylinder is taken care of, check to see if your hot water pipes are insulated, as this can also be causing unnecessary heat loss. Wrap external hot water pipes with insulation tape to reduce the heat loss from your hot

water tank to the taps, and reduce the energy needed to get your hot water. It can be bought inexpensively from your local hardware store. There are also alternatives for pipe insulation such as specific fibreglass insulation, or a cheaper alternative is use pre-moulded foam rubber sleeves. Insulating your walls may be an expensive option as you will need to remove the gib to lay the insulation, but a more effective and affordable place to start is your ceiling. A well-insulated house can use almost half the energy for heating and cooling, compared to a non-insulated home, which means that insulation pays for itself in cheaper bills in as little as one to two years. With energy prices likely to rise, installing insulation now is a smart way of avoiding excessive bills in the future. For effective insulation, be sure that the insulation doesn’t have gaps in-between it when installed, and make sure it is the recommended thickness to prevent heat escaping. Ceiling batts are different to wall batts, so make sure you consult a professional before making a purchase.

It’s winter, not summer While it’s tempting to crank up the heat and run around in shorty PJ’s like you’re on holiday in the Pacific Islands, just remember that every degree hotter you are heating your home is costing you more on your power bill. A comfortable temperature for most is between 18 and 20 degrees Celsius, so before you reach for the temperature button to raise it up a few notches, are you really wanting to increase your power bill by up to four percent additional for every extra degree of heat? As that is what it could cost you. If you don’t have thermostat controlled heating such as a heat pump, consider getting an electronic thermometer for your living area to keep an eye on the temperature. It could potentially create large financial savings in the long run. The best way to hold your heating costs down is heat your home efficiently while keeping the cold out. A little more insulation in the hot water system and ceiling, thermal drapes and rubber seals to keep drafts out, or an extra layer on the floor will help to keep a room warm. Your savings generated could top more than $600 this winter with a little planning and consideration, a nice deposit toward some longer-term energy saving initiatives, or perhaps a holiday somewhere a bit warmer.

It doesn’t matter that Apple tantalises with the promise of an iWatch or Apple Shoes. Or that people are working on T-shirts that can hold an electric charge to power tablets and mobile phones. It doesn’t matter because the next wave of wearable tech is already here, it’s extremely cool, and it’s only going to get cooler. From Samsung Galaxy phones that measure your heart rate and Body Mass Index to Google Glass on the fashion runways of New York City, the digital devices formerly carried in pocket or purse are becoming a part of personal style. The internet was abuzz with speculation earlier this year when word leaked that Apple was at work on something akin to Dick Tracy’s two-way wristwatch. Or not. When Steve Jobs threw away the stylus to prove that hand-held tech doesn’t require anything more than lifting a finger, that was revolutionary. In the case of the “iWatch,� as some have dubbed it, the speculation sounds a bit doubtful it will be anything special. So, we’ll see. Not so, however, in the case of Google Glass, which has been building buzz since last year. Celebrities and everyday folk have been given the chance to try these red-hot tech specs. Models on the runway at Diane von Furstenberg’s spring/summer show in September were decked out in the glasses, which are sleek and shiny and come in a variety of colours. The specs allow wearers to experience augmented reality, to “see� computerised projections in the real world around them. They also will allow photos to be taken with a blink of an eye or emails to be read, with physical motions or spoken word. At least one politician, Representative Gary G Howell of the West Virginia state house of delegates, has introduced a bill to amend laws that already limit functions such as texting while driving: no driving while wearing Google Glass. Google isn’t the first to test the waters of such glasses. Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show this winter, and the US Department of Defense reportedly is working on a combination of high-tech glasses and contact lenses that would deliver everything from map coordinates to real-time conflict information to the wearer. Then there is Canadian Steve Mann, a pioneer in wearable computing who has been viewing the world through various forms of his EyeTap Digital Eye Glass for more than 30 years. Mann’s glasses-like device projects

images onto the retina of his right eye, is connected to the internet, and can only be removed with a special tool. Unlike augmented reality, Mann has developed a form of mediated reality; images are not so much added to his field of vision as they are filtered. It makes him resemble a cyborg, which, he posted in a blog last summer, might be the reason he was physically and verbally attacked by employees at a McDonald’s in Paris. He carries a doctor’s note with him when he boards planes to explain why he cannot remove the device. Xiaodong Li is a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of South Carolina. His idea of wearable tech might someday come in S, M and L. Li and Lihong Bao, a postdoctoral asso-

ciate, can, according to a science journal, “convert insulating T-shirt textiles into highly conductive and flexible activated carbon textiles for energy-storage applications�. They made a T-shirt that stores power. “We will soon see roll-up mobile phones and laptop computers on the market,� he told the university’s magazine. “But a flexible energy storage device is needed to make this possible.� When Christiaan Ribbens was a post grad student in the Netherlands, he and a partner came up with Woven. They built a prototype: two fully working sets of clothing (sweaters and jeans) that were studded with sensors. Two speakers were integrated into the collar of the sweaters, which were connected to mobile phones. Then they designed a pervasive video

game that incorporated elements of the real world around them. In theory, the user might someday change the look of the shirt with the wave of a hand, or remotely control devices such as TV sets. Ribbens currently seeks employment as a game designer, which has put Woven on the back burner. But at least one high-tech adopter isn’t eager to outfit himself with Google Glass or anything along that line. Fantasy-sci-fi author Neil Gaiman recently said at a press conference that he would refrain because the device looked “very, very silly�. More important, he said, life doesn’t need any more distractions: “I think trying to learn to be present while you’re present is a really good thing to do.�  - SHNS

Bay police officers go hi-tech By Amy McGillivray Western Bay police now have little need to go back to the office. The 128 iPhones handed out to Katikati, Te Puke, Mount Maunganui and Tauranga police officers this week allow them to file their paperwork on the go and 72 will also receive iPads. Constable Caine McGregor said the devices would allow him to spend

less time in the office and more time on the street preventing crime. Acting Western Bay of Plenty police area commander Inspector Karl Wright-St Clair told the Bay of Plenty Times the devices would mean a more mobile, visible front-line presence as officers could use their devices to complete critical tasks while out in their communities. “This is all about freeing up staff time so they can spend more time in the community, focus on proac-

tive crime prevention activities, and provide a better service to victims,� he said. “These devices allow officers to be more efficient and effective at their jobs because they have fast access to information and other useful policing tools.� Mr Wright-St Clair said the iPads were given to staff who had more complex data entry needs. Western Bay police received their smart devices as part of the Police

National Mobility Project. Nationally, 6500 smartphones and 3900 iPads will be rolled out during the year. It was estimated the devices would save 30 minutes per officer per shift, meaning more than half a million more front-line police hours every year - the equivalent of 345 extra officers. Throughout the Bay district the devices were estimated to free up 41,526 police hours every year, about 30 extra police officers. - BOP

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, June 7, 2013


By Jonathan Leask The Mid Canterbury senior football team are lining up to step into the unknown tonight. The side play Christchurch United under lights on an artificial surface at Christchurch’s ASB Park for the first time and the players are so keen for the new experience it’s given coach Peter Roberts a welcome selection headache. “It’s quite interesting that a couple of weeks ago I only had maybe 11 or 12 of the senior squad available, but I have 17 available players for this one,” Roberts said. “Only one or two of the guys have played on ASB Park before, so even having to get off work early to travel to Christchurch on a Friday night it’s amazing who’s available to play under lights on the artificial in a bit of a stadium.” Formerly English Park, the venue was renovated and renamed in 2011 and is used as Christchurch United’s home venue throughout the season. “Christchurch United hire the venue for all their division one matches. “I think they have accessed some funding for it because it’s not cheap. It probably costs around $300 per game but it will be a good experience for us.” The team is lining up for the experience but Roberts hope they can secure the result and is confident they can after an impressive 3-2 win over Cashmere Technical last weekend.

Greg Feutz: One of the experienced players in the Mid Canterbury side “It’s about the best we’ve played all season after a couple of average performances, but having a few key players back made the difference.” “If we have a full squad we are competitive, but we can lose three or four and it can make a huge difference.”

• College confident

Mid Canterbury eyes top spot

Ashburton College face their biggest test of the Crusaders secondary school rugby competiton campaign heading north to take on Nelson Boys’ College tomorrow. Ashburton are chasing an unprecedented top four finish, currently third, and need a win from their final two matches to achieve the feat. Coming off a strong 24-18 win over Timaru Boys, Ashburton head north confident they can compete against an unbeaten Nelson outfit, themselves coming off a 22-all draw with arch rivals Marlborough Boys’.

Greg Feutz, Davilson Inacio and Steve French came back into the side and with their added experience the side delivered, and Roberts is hoping for a repeat effort. Last time they met Christchurch United Mid Canterbury scored a 4-2 win. “That was a good performance but they have improved since then. “It’s a pretty tight division and we are capable of beating anyone. “ Having met every team in the league once Roberts said that Universities were the benchmark. The unbeaten students side was deducted 15 points for fielding an unregistered player in their opening five round wins and have quickly caught up ground to be on nine points with three straight wins, including a 7-0 thrashing of Mid Canterbury. “Universities is the strongest team in the division, and when they beat us 7-0 was when we were down to 11 of our senior squad so we were really up against it, but it will be good to play them with everyone available.” That clash isn’t scheduled until July 13 and if the league carries on in the same vein it could be a crucial one. The league is so tight that of the eight sides, the top six are with two points of each other with four sides tied on 13, but that could change tonight. “If we can get the win we move to the top of the league going a point clear, although the other teams will have the chance to overtake us again when they play [tomorrow].”

• Black Caps celebrate The New Zealand cricketers celebrated their one-day series over England by spraying champagne over each other like Formula One drivers, but the team still needs a pitstop to assess its limited overs form ahead of the Champions Trophy. The tournament started overnight with India meeting South Africa in Cardiff. Despite New Zealand’s improved ODI performances following the test anguish, captain Brendon McCullum identified four areas for improvement after a rejuvenated England won the final match of the three-game series by 34 runs at Trent Bridge. Death bowling, middle order batting, overall fielding and general fitness came into the crosshairs for attention before their campaign opens against Sri Lanka on Sunday. - HOS

Off to the nationals By Jonathan Leask Mid Canterbury has had 23 players named into the Canterbury Country teams for the National Championships in July. This year Basketball Mid Canterbury (BBMC) combined with North Canterbury and South Canterbury to play as Canterbury Country after Basketball New Zealand changed their representative format, cancelling out the zone qualifications process and converting to a regionally based system. The squads of prospective players began the trials in March with a final hit out at the Junior Invitational Tournament in Christchurch over Queens Birthday weekend before the coaches selected their final tournament team. Mid Canterbury has a big contingent of players across the three age groups with each team having 10 players. Across the five teams Mid Can-

terbury makes up 46 per cent of the players in the triumvirate, while Mid Canterbury coaches have also been selected with Pat Turton head coach of the under 15 girls’ team and Kimberly Sexton is assistant coach for under 17 boys’. Each team also has two non-

travelling reserves as contingency cover with Mid Canterbury having two further players that will continue to train with the sides. The first to head away are the under 17s, off to the North Shore from July 17-20. The under 17 girls team features Victoria Coley, Kate Lloyd, Tessa Morrison and New Zealand under 16

representative Emily Hickman while the boys’ team has Xavier Bartlett, Cameron Butler, Kieran Hunt, Max Sexton and Kody Stuthridge. Four boys were named in the Canterbury Country under 19 boys’ team with Jason O’Connor, Josh Stempa, Cole Wilson and George Wilson off to Nelson from July 24-27. At the same time the under 15 boys’ and girls’ are in Wellington with Mid Canterbury having five players and a non-travelling reserve in each. Sala Bueta, Georgina Kelly, Mel Pucket, Libby Ross and Grace Wilson are in the girls’ team with Serenity Timothy a non-travelling reserve, and in the boys team is Western Bartlett, Gareth Hunt, Thomas O’Brien, Liam O’Connor and Alin Onicas, with Eru TahuriCooper a non-travelling reserve. The under 13s will soon commence their squad trials to begin preparations for their nationals in October.

Tinwald’s Anne Dwan watches her putt head towards the hole during the Low Cup defence against Waimate yesterday.

Short Low Cup tenure By Jonathan Leask After taking 42 years to win the Low Cup back, the Tinwald ladies golf team could only hold onto it for a fortnight. They hosted their first challenge yesterday against Waimate, but it proved to be their first and last. At the end of the round the teams were tied 3-3 with Pat Bell, Mara

Kennedy and Dianne Bell having wins for Tinwald. “We thought ‘Oh well a draw will do’ to keep the trophy,” Tinwald’s Anne Dwan said. “But then we found out it went to a countback on holes up and they had us beat.” The countback saw Waimate take the trophy 14-10 on holes up leaving the Tinwald ladies disappointed, and for good reason.

The Tinwald team had travelled down to Highfield last month for their first challenge in two years and won the match 4-2 to lift the challenge trophy for the first time since 1971. Now they slide to the bottom of the challenge list to await their next shot in another two years’ time, hoping they don’t have another 42 years to get their hands on the prize again.

Warriors losing a Friend? Lawson in form for champs By Michael Brown Hooker Nathan Friend looks set to leave the Warriors at the end of the season as the picture around halves and hookers becomes increasingly congested. The 32-year-old has been a fixture at Mt Smart Stadium for the past two seasons but is off contract at the end of 2013. The club have been in talks about his future, and it appears he has been told they won’t be offering him a new deal. “I may be looking for a new home in 2014,” Friend tweeted last night, which came two days after telling his followers he was due to find out his fate from the club. The Warriors are on the verge of signing Cronulla five-eighth

Chad Townsend for 2014 and they already have Shaun Johnson, Thomas Leuluai and Harry Siejka on their books. It’s expected Leuluai will move to hooker next season, and Friend’s departure would free up some room in the salary cap for the club to sign England fullback Sam Tomkins, who they have openly been chasing. The Warriors are reportedly taking up an option to retain Pita Godinet next season, but Alehana Mara is expected leave. Friend is a hard-working player who has averaged 43 tackles a game this season. He has played 161 NRL games since his debut for the Brisbane Broncos in 2002, but has had issues with his shoulders over the past couple of seasons.  - APNZ

Nathan Friend: Time to move on?

Over a thousand indoor bowlers will converge on Rotorua for the 64th National Indoor Bowls Championships with 14 Ashburton bowlers in the mix. There are 635 entries in the singles, 395 in the pairs, 240 in the triples and 180 in the fours for the eighth time the event has been held in Rotorua, with the last being in 1999. The 14 from Ashburton are Rosemary Bennett, Noeline Brough, Jim Stewart, Margaret Stewart, Christine Talbot, Martin Nordqvist, Jenny Nordqvist, Maurice Berkeley, Paul Berkeley, Tania Berkeley, Alex Crawford, Russell Ellis, Darryn Turner and Michael Lawson. Lawson is in good form, having

Jennings’ try ‘an Origin great’ By James MacSmith Michael Jennings says he knew the State of Origin opener could hinge on a piece of individual brilliance, and he was able to produce it. The NSW centre beat half of the Queensland team with some incredible footwork to score four minutes out from halftime and deliver the Blues a 14-0 lead. It was a lead they would never relinquish. Origin games are often won and lost on a brilliant individual display, so often produced by the Maroons over the past seven years, and Jennings Michael Jennings: Individual brilliance said that was something he was keenly


aware of as he set sail for the line. “The main focus was trying to get over that line, you treat it as just another line that’s all I was looking at, that is all I am concentrating on,” Jennings said. “Everything is about getting over that line and I was very happy to be able to do that and contribute to the win. “I have always had the confidence in my ability to do that.” Jennings paid credit to the Blues forwards for laying a platform from which their backline could capitalise on in the 14-6 win, the first game one win since 2008. “The boys are really passionate about what we are doing and I think

you saw that out there. We played with a lot of heart out there,” Jennings said. “The forwards led the way, they took the pressure off. “They were great getting us out of our end zone again and again and again. That really took some of the pressure off.” Last Origin series Jennings was plucked out of reserve grade by then NSW coach Ricky Stuart to play for the Blues. “Last year was last year, that is all in the past now,” Jennings said. “I’m at a new club now and I’m really enjoying my football and that is all I can ask for. “But now as far as NSW is concerned we have to back this up.” - AAP

Joseph Zino (Hutt Valley) in the singles, pairs title holder’s Steve Fisher and Pam Cohen (Auckland), in the triples Grant L’Ami, Mike and Lorraine Phipps (Tauranga) and David Archer, Maureen Pruden, Joy Archer, and Candace Archer Waikato in the fours. As well as individual honours there is also the North versus South matches with Ashburton bowlers in the South teams. Christine Talbot has been selected to play the singles in the South Island Academy team. In the Southern Zone Masters Jenny Nordqvist will play lead in the triples, Rosemary Bennett skips the fours, Noeline Brough will play second in the fours and Jim Stewart will play second in the men’s Fours. The championship starts tomorrow with section play in the singles.

Parramatta co-captain Jarryd Hayne has conceded morale is low at the struggling NRL club after a dozen players were told they’re not wanted next season. Hours before State of Origin I in Sydney on Wednesday, Eels forwards Ben Smith, Matt Keating and co-captain Reni Maitua were amongst those told to look for a new club. Hayne was blunt when asked for his reaction to coach Ricky Stuart’s clean-out when he fronted a club media conference a day after playing a lead role in NSW’s game one victory over Queensland. “Yeah, the highest high and the lowest low,” said Hayne. “To hear what happened yesterday and how it happened was very disappointing and something I was taken aback by when I got told the way it went down. To have mates and team-mates put on show like that was disappointing.” - AAP

• Reds man up for Lions The tough-talking Queensland Reds won’t die wondering as they aim to run the British and Irish Lions into the ground in an unofficial “fourth Test” on Saturday night. In contrast to a half-strength Western Force, the Reds are backing themselves to repeat history with a second boilover of the Lions in Brisbane in 42 years. Reds coaching boss Ewen McKenzie named his strongest side available, including 12 Wallabies, and has given his players a license to thrill at a packed Suncorp Stadium. McKenzie predicts the Reds to rise to the immense challenge at home and showcase their attacking game like in epic victories against the Bulls and Crusaders in recent years. “We play our best football against the best teams, so all the ingredients are there for us to play well,” he said.- AAP

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, June 7, 2013


Rakaia, Celtic face finals rugby By Jonathan Leask Rakaia still remember their first Combined Country Cup finals rugby experience. Rakaia made the top eight for the first time in 2011, but were dumped out by Darfield 35-0. This time around they have qualified as the top team in section one, but know that means nothing in the knockout stages. “We got bundled out last time but we’re looking forward to keeping a good season going and its one step at a time,” Rakaia coach Wayne Foxcroft said. Rakaia are coming off a 21-9 win over Southern on Monday where they were a bit rattled in the first half to be down 9-3, but came back with a strong second half performance to get the win. “We weren’t slow to start, Southern just started strong and we just had to hold the pressure. “Everyone has a turn at attacking and we slowly wore them down. “Waihora could take 60, 70 or 80

minutes but we’re hoping it’s a bit drier as the wet took away one of our major weapons. Rakaia’s backline is full of firepower with centre Dwayne Burrows busting teams open at times this season, but his workload was limited in the wet and either way the weather goes the forward pack has another big test on their hands. Waihora has been up and down this season but toppled defending champions Southbridge last weekend 23-20, and have also outmuscled Lincoln in recent weeks. “We expect it to be a hard battle but we’ll play what’s in front of us. “We have a game plan, we’ll take that into the game and hopefully it still works.” Celtic have their first quarter-final in the Combined Country Cup, having been a regular finalist in the combined competition before the North Canterbury clubs joined in 2007, and have arguably the hardest task taking on the defending champions Southbridge. Celtic’s cause will be buoyed by the return of some key recruits

coming back on deck after being a bit undermanned in their 15-20 loss to Methven on Monday. “We should be back towards full strength with some guys back in key positions,” Celtic coach Dave McCrea said. One of the major ones is loose forward Danny Hurley, whose ball running ability was missed in Monday’s loss. “Danny’s a leader and go forward man and he’ll be back in but I think all the guys will be up for it. “They felt they let themselves down on Monday and know there are no second chances so we’ll be all guns blazing.” Southbridge also comes in off a loss in their last outing, downed by Waihora, which makes the defending champions even more dangerous, with their pronounced attacking abilities displayed two weeks ago when they piled on a try-fest in thrashing West Melton 75-11. “We know what they are capable of and witnessed it first-hand last year.

“We have to keep their Fijians at bay and control them in what we do rather than letting them do what they do, or we’ll come up second best.” In the other quarter-finals Ashley’s unbeaten record will mean nothing against a plucky Saracens side coming off a strong 27-22 win over Oxford, the same day Ashley struggled past strugglers Kaiapoi 23-19. In a battle of the red and blacks, last year’s runners-up Lincoln enjoy home field advantage against Oxford. In the trophy Methven look to continue their winning streak, which currently stands at five, against old foes Darfield while Burnham host Glenmark. Southern and Hampstead will be going at it again in the plate section, after Hampstead won the first encounter back in round one 12-10, and Kaiapoi will host DunsandellIrwell.

French plans ‘a mystery’ By Wynne Gray

Dagg knows it’s D-Day on the park One of the season’s great unresolved rugby issues will get a different inspection tomorrow at Eden Park. Israel Dagg’s glittering moments in 2013 do not make for a long list. Instead he has provoked regular questions: why has the fullback struggled and how will those issues be resolved? The All Blacks selectors are convinced they can solve Dagg’s dip in form and have picked him for the opening test duty against France. On form, that selection does not square up. Ben Smith and Charles Piutau have better claims, but while both are in the expanded test group, Dagg gets first crack at his favoured duties. Confirmation came yesterday, on his 25th birthday, as the selectors unveiled a side with a back three of Dagg, Smith and Julian Savea. All year coach Steve Hansen made it clear he and his colleagues want to persist with those who toured Europe late last year and were still turning out in the Super 15.

Others heading offshore like Hosea Gear and Tamati Ellison were overlooked for domestic talent. So Dagg’s selection was no surprise. His lack of form, however, remains perplexing. A curious piece of non-action a week ago seemed to summarise his credentials this season. Dagg was caught flat-footed and Waratah flanker Michael Hooper burned him on the outside. That happens. But when Dagg got back to help his team-mates, he made a frail attempt to tackle and claim Hooper before he scored. The actions of a man badly out of touch, or bereft of confidence? Both probably, as Dagg is a player who trusts the instincts which have delivered some superb moments in test rugby. He started this year slowly and has rarely got out of that trough. Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder could not find the right switch to ignite his fullback, and in exasperation and hope, plonked Dagg on the

bench for a few games. Responses varied but tomorrow Dagg gets a massive break. He knows it. He has been just as frustrated as spectators. “I have been given a big opportunity this weekend and I just have to go out there and repay the selectors,” he said. “It has been frustrating and that’s all I can say really.” Dagg could not enlighten us with any clues for his problems, none he wanted to divulge anyway as his eyes darted around the room. His theories were as solid as his recent defence. His confidence had taken a hit but his sights were on a revival. All Black selection had given him some of that faith and in this team, he just had to concentrate on his work as part of powerful unit. “I just have to put that behind me now and focus on these three tests for my country. “I have been given an opportunity this weekend to prove to myself really, first, that I have a right to be here,” he said.

Meanwhile, France are not hugely experienced but will fancy their front row clash against the All Blacks. Loosehead prop Wyatt Crockett and hooker Dane Coles have been occasional test choices but front up at Eden Park tomorrow as injury and development ideas open All Black selection gaps. Coles was the future and this was his chance, coach Steve Hansen said. “He’s not going to develop by sitting on the bench. The door is open but he’s got to walk through it.” Coles’ rugby was restricted when he broke his eye socket in April. He attended both All Black camps and returned to Super 15 work last round against the Brumbies. Crockett’s scrum technique came in for its latest reproach from former All Black coach Graham Henry but Hansen dismissed that as the grizzles from a beaten Blues side. He felt France would try to bully the All Blacks up front and then change direction with their backs,

as they tried in the Six Nations. He also revealed that Daniel Carter would miss the second test in Christchurch to allow the fracture in his right hand to heal properly. The set-piece and all other aspects will come under Wayne Barnes’ jurisdiction. Barnes has refereed the All Blacks three times since his controversial control of their 18-20 World Cup quarter-final defeat to France in 2007. The only time he has refereed the All Blacks since, in New Zealand, he sent off Irish No 8 Jamie Heaslip. Senior All Black loosehead prop Tony Woodcock is out of this test because he had an infected nose and the coaches did not want to play and “flatten” him for the rest of the series. That decision means the versatile Ben Franks and rookie Ben Afeaki are props on an expanded eightman bench, with Hurricanes lock Jeremy Thrush also looking for his first cap as a 28-year-old.  - NZH

If the French are handing out awards for sporting diplomacy, Louis Picamoles would be a prime contender. He is certainly top-shelf French boeuf at 113kg and 1.92m, ploughing many of the hard metres from the back of the scrum where he has represented his country 36 times. This is his third rugby trip to New Zealand after previous visits in 2009 and the oh-so-close conclusion to the World Cup two years later. That was then. The French squad has changed a great deal since Philippe St Andre took over as coach from Marc Lievremont. Quite what they are doing or how they are planning to play is a mystery. Their Six Nations work was modest. Picamoles believes it is a case of starting again in the build-up to the 2015 world tournament. Testing themselves against the All Blacks is a great yardstick for France who believe they can challenge the men in black in the three-test series. The No8 said the side may be young but they believed they could give the All Blacks some hurry-up. “We want to enjoy this time with the French team. “It is always great to tour with the national side,” he said. “Having played here before, that is the thing I tell the others, to get great pleasure from living and taking in this land and the people. “We have to enjoy our time on the pitch too and the experiments the selectors are making with the side.” There was no comparison with the 2011 side, which came within touching distance of the World Cup. “We are not in the same kind of competition. “Many of the senior players have left the squad now so we are developing the next wave so they are two different teams,” Picamoles said. St Andre had a different personality from his predecessor and brought his own strategies. That was a natural evolution and would take some time to settle. “But we are not here to compare, we are here to find a collective work to be able to face the challenge from the best,” Picamoles said. It would be an honour to play against new All Black captain Kieran Read, whose work was of consistently high quality, he said. “We are not here to have a duel. “We are here to find collective solutions.” Touche Monsieur Picamoles, vous avez un certificate diplomatique.  - NZH

Lions send a message By Justin Chadwick In 2003, it was England fiveeighth Jonny Wilkinson who left the Wallabies heartbroken when he kicked the match-winning drop goal in the World Cup final. This year, Welsh fullback Leigh Halfpenny has the potential to be just as damaging during the British and Irish Lions’ three-Test series against the Wallabies. Halfpenny was left shattered in 2009 when a thigh injury ended his Lions tour of South Africa after just one practice match. The 24-year-old is eager to make up for lost time, and the Wallabies

could bear the brunt of the damage if Wednesday night’s showing is anything to go by. Halfpenny nailed all 11 kicks at goal in the Lions’ 69-17 romp over the Western Force in Perth, with four of those shots coming from the sideline. The Lions are spoilt for choices in the goalkicking department, with five-eighth Jonathan Sexton also accurate, but Halfpenny is the frontrunner to take on the kicking duties for the three-Test series. “Ever since I was on that plane back home from South Africa, I’ve been dreaming of this moment of putting on a Lions jersey again,” Halfpenny said. - AAP

• Step up for Rakaia A Rakaia A have home court advantage hosting Hampstead A for their Country Day at the Rakaia Domain in Senior A netball’s third round tomorrow. Rakaia A will have some confidence after registering a solid 33-25 win over Hampstead B but will have to step up again to match the Hampstead A side. In Ashburton the defending premiers Methven A meet College A in the match of the round with sides evenly poised. Both teams have lost to Celtic A, with Methven going down by four the rain affected first round while College A had a last-quarter fade to fall 21-35. Celtic A is yet to lose a match this season should prove too strong for College B while the also unbeaten United A are coming off a strong 21-11 win over Hampstead A and should account for Hampstead B in the last game of the round.

• Tough task for Tinwald Tinwald will test themselves against the top side in the MidSouth Canterbury hockey competition tomorrow. The first time they met defending champions Wakanui Black they were thumped 13-0 which was also their first game in the competition after a win by default in week one. Seven games later they are still looking for an elusive first up win, but tomorrow’s clash with the unbeaten Black side will be about proving a point and showing their development Tinwald will be out to contain the Black attack, as well as finding their own finishing touch, struggling to score goals in their last four games that have been closely contested, but ultimately losses. Tomorrow shapes as a similar outcome but they will be aiming for a much closer score. In Timaru Wakanui Blue tackle Tainui and the Hampstead women meet Geraldine.

• Away wins elusive The Ashburton Barbarians take on the Burnham Chevaliers at Coronation Park in division one Canterbury rugby league tomorrow. The Barbarians bounced back from their first home defeat of the season, a 16-6 loss to the table-topping Sydenham Swans, to register a convincing 53-20 win over the Riccarton Knights R last weekend. Yet to win away from home this season, the Barbarians are will have their work cut out for them against the fourth placed Chevaliers.

• Squash at Methven The Methven Squash Club hosts the third leg of the Mid Canterbury Tournament series this weekend. Players from the 11 clubs will tonight begin contesting the third of nine tournaments in Methven, which concludes with the Mid Canterbury Championships in August. As well as the individual tournament titles, the added incentive is the overall points accumulated over the nine tournaments, with Ashburton and Geraldine already hosting the first two rounds. Also this weekend is the Midlands Junior Squash Tournament at the Ashburton Squash Club. The top juniors, D grade and below from the Midlands area, based between Ashburton and Oamaru with six affiliated clubs, will battle for top honours, also starting tonight.

• All runners welcome The Ashburton Harriers Club will be holding their annual Norrie Cup cross country race at the Tinwald Domain on Sunday. The event will feature competitive runners, but the club is looking to break the perception of their events being strictly for the fit and fast, with their events also suited to joggers and walkers of any ability. The 10km open race is the feature running race, but there are other distances and grades available for runners, joggers and walkers starting at 1.30pm.

• ‘Clean up your act’ The Warriors have taken action against Russell Packer for urinating on the pitch before Monday night’s big win against Brisbane and the big prop has been told by coach Matt Elliott to clean up his act. The 23-year-old has been at the centre of debate this week, which has taken attention away from their best performance for some time, and he also caused the club to be slapped with a A$15,000 fine. Packer was off limits to media yesterday but Elliott said he had been spoken to. The Warriors had a light training session yesterday in the hope freshening them up because they will come up against a well-rested Sea Eagles outfit who had the bye last week. - APNZ

• Sweating on Jackson The Breakers have one rosterspot left in their quest for a fourthstraight ANBL title and coach Dean Vickerman is leaving that door wide open for Cedric Jackson. Vickerman yesterday signed American Darnell Lazare as one of two imports, but will hold off naming the second until late July in the hope last year’s MVP will return for a third season.- HOL

Cross country in the sunshine To see more or purchase photos

From the sideline

Mount Hutt College’s Mikayla Lewis runs along the shingle road to Awa Awa Rata Reserve during the Aoraki cross country championships yesterday. After being rained off on Wednesday the sun was out for the regional championship as the competitors ran along the shingle road, but with snow lingering in the foothills it was a chilly expedition through the muddy subalpine track to the finish line. Mt Hutt’s Aimee Elliott won the junior girls and Assina Dalglish was second in the intermediate girls, while Ashburton College’s Cameron Jopson was second in the junior boys. A number of the runners will have been using the race as a warm-up to the national secondary schools’ race which is on June 15 at the Halswell Quarry.

Erakovic banks on success Marina Erakovic broke through the US$1 million barrier earlier this year and, after the last fortnight in Paris, is well on her way to earning her second million. Erakovic and Zimbabwean partner Cara Black were bundled out of the doubles quarter-finals at the French Open yesterday, going down 2-6 7-6 6-4 to second seeds Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic. She picked up NZ$41,000 (e25,000) for her efforts on top of the $98,000 (euro60,000) she earned for reaching the third round of the singles before being beaten by 17th-seeded American Sloane Stephens 6-4 6-7 6-3. It takes her prizemoney for the year to US$359,584 and career earnings to US$1,348,902. The 25-year-old can look forward to another good payday in the next month with the circuit about to hit the grass, culminating with Wimbledon where she had previously enjoyed her best success at a grand slam tournament. Grass is her favourite surface.

Erakovic will play at Birmingham and will enter qualifying for Eastbourne before heading to Wimbledon where she will play singles and once again team up with Black in the doubles. Her form in the doubles at Roland Garros wasn’t a surprise, given Erakovic and Black had played in consecutive WTA finals in the two weeks immediately before the French Open, but her progress in the singles was encouraging after winning only one of her seven matches previously. It will also boost her rankings, which should jump from 92 to about 70 in singles and from 32 to the mid-20s in doubles. Erakovic has made a conscious decision over the past 12 months to play more aggressively and it’s a tactic that brings both risk and reward. “I think I’m playing good tennis,” Erakovic told Newstalk ZB when reflecting on her French Open campaign. “I have got nothing but positives to take out of this tournament. “The match against Sloane was very tight and I definitely had my chances. “I want to continue, I want to keep improving, I want to hit the ball bigger

and bigger. I feel that I can take a lot of confidence out of this tournament.” Erakovic and Black had their chances in their doubles quarter-final against Hlavackova and Hradecka, who won the French Open two years ago, but converted only five of 16 break point opportunities, including three break points when 2-2 in the final set. “We could talk about it all day long and say we could have done this and that but we were down 5-2 in the second set and came back [to win it in a tiebreaker],” Erakovic said. “We fought really hard and came very close. “There were a lot of positives to come out of it.” Meanwhile, the 1983 Roland Garros winner Yannick Noah is convinced Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s march through this year’s draw means the sixth seed can become the first local man to win the French Open in 30 years. Noah, whose straight-sets win over Mats Wilander in the final three decades ago remains an iconic moment in the modern history of French sports, had been dismissive of home hopes ahead of this year’s tournament say-

ing that the current generation was not up to it. But Tsonga’s superb form, in which he has reached the last four without losing a set - including a quarter-final demolition of Roger Federer - has led to a rethink. “What I have seen so far is that he has had a great tournament, very solid, very applied,” the tennis player turned pop star said. “Very impressive and what strikes me especially is the attitude he has. You can see that he is determined to go all the way. “He deserved his win over Federer. “He was simply the better player on the day and it’s true we are starting to dream that he can go all the way.” Tsonga, the fifth seed, stormed past a befuddled Federer 7-5 6-3 6-3 to prove that his aggressive, physical game can work just as well on clay as on grass and hardcourts where his best wins have been so far. Next up in Friday’s semi-finals is claycourt expert, Spanish “bulldozer” David Ferrer, but Noah believes his fellow Frenchman has the game to dominate that clash. - APNZ
