K2 puts locals in hospital By Sam Morton Ashburton residents have been admitted to Christchurch Hospital after smoking K2. The shocking revelation, which saw at least two individual Ashburton cases unfold at the Christchurch Emergency Department at the weekend, demonstrates exactly why the Government has banned the harmful chemicals found in K2. The Temporary Class Drug

Notice, which came into force yesterday, makes it illegal to import, manufacture, sell or supply BB-22 and 5F-AKB48 – prominently found in K2. However, that did little to deter one local business from selling it – ignoring the new law completely and openly offering the synthetic cannabis-type substance – along with other legal highs. In a Guardian sting operation yesterday, the Bel Air Dairy on East Street was the only premises to offer the harmful synthetic

cannabis-type substance – along with other legal highs. Overnight Wednesday, a law banning a prominent chemical used in K2 came into instant effect, but that clearly did little to deter the local business from selling it. Although the Bel Air Dairy owner told the mystery shopper he had run out of stock yesterday, he made it clear that he would be restocking the new product next week and encouraged the customer to return.

In the meantime, he offered the mystery shopper other legal high products which he described as “fine” and “okay to use”. Last month, during another undercover sting, Coin Save merchandise store, also on East Street, had the products and told the reporter they were out of stock, but would restock. Yesterday, the Guardian’s mystery shopper was told the store no longer sold the artificial drug and would unlikely to do so again. It was not known if the store

sold other legal highs. Despite the new law forcing shops to clear K2 from their shelves, synthetic cannabis suppliers have been quick to readjust their product, removing the banned product and replacing it with legal ingredients. It is understood the new products may hit the shelves as early as Monday. Health authorities and police are scathing, blaming the products for psychosis effects and other mental harm seen around

the country. Last weekend alone, two Ashburton cases related to consuming K2 were dealt with in the Christchurch Emergency Department, with a Canterbury District Health Board spokeswoman pointing out those cases were not the first from Mid Canterbury. However, tracking down detailed statistics would be time consuming and likely to take a while. Senior Sergeant Grant Russell, of Ashburton, said police were aware of two stores in Ashburton

that stocked the product and said police would likely “look into it” next week. “It wouldn’t be something we do this week, but we would certainly look into it,” Mr Russell said. Meanwhile, Associate Minister of Health Peter Dunne is aiming to pass yet another law to force suppliers to prove their products are not harmful, before they hit the shelves in a bid to remove the products altogether. The law is unlikely to be passed until August.

ACC claims from Bond, Murray get their gongs scooter accidents spike By Myles Hume A resurgence in the popularity of push scooters has led to a dramatic 1740 per cent rise in the number of Mid Canterbury children seriously injured. Principals blame the huge spike on the number of children riding push scooters in Mid Canterbury, but child safety authorities are calling for schools and parents to enforce safety rules. Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) statistics obtained by the Guardian show there were 87 claims lodged in the Ashburton District last year, more than 17 times the number in 2008, which was just six. Nationally, the claims have leapt from 1047 in 2008, to 7553 last year, with more than 6000 of those claimants last year under the age of 14. Ashburton District Council road safety co-ordinator Rachael Boyd said the number of injuries could be lowered if children wore helmets and shoes while riding scooters. She said more than half of New Zealand children in urban primary schools scootered to school, and Ashburton’s pupils were no different. “While it is not a legal requirement to wear helmets, they should be worn at all times,” she said. “For young children many learn to ride a scooter before they can ride a bike. “We don’t want children to stop riding scooters; we just want them to be safe when they do.” Mrs Boyd said. Longbeach School principal Neil Simons said the figures went hand-in-hand with an influx two years ago in Mid Canterbury, when many youngsters started bringing their scooters to school. “I think also we have seen a shift in the extreme sports becoming even more extreme, on Nitrocircus or the X Games you now see them doing double back flips on scooters, maybe kids are watching them and trying more extreme things,” Mr Simons said. Tinwald School principal Peter Livingstone said he had seen “a few bumps and bruises” when letting the pupils ride their scooters for two days a week at school,

rules in place to ensure safety. “In terms of helmets, our children don’t have them and we have no recorded head injuries, if they are called for that’s not a problem,” Mr Livingstone said. The Ashburton District recorded more claims than surrounding districts. The Timaru District peaked last year with 65 ACC claims while the Selwyn District saw only 37. SafeKids director Ann Weaver said they were looking to entice schools to create policies that meant children had to wear helmets and other safety equipment to school. She hoped “it would help reduce” the 158 hospitalisations and eight deaths related to riding scooters in New Zealand.

The number of Accident Compensation Corporation claims for push scooter related injuries has skyrocketed in Mid Canterbury during the past four years.

Chertsey’s Hamish Bond was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for his services to rowing on Wednesday. Together with rowing partner Eric Murray, Bond won gold in the men’s coxless pair at the London Olympics, setting new Olympic and world records at the same time. They make a formidable team and they are so inseparable that they added another accolade together, standing side-by-side in their Olympic blazers as they were made Members of the New Zealand Order of Merit for their services to rowing. “The nature of our sport and our event is that we are, I guess, intrinsically linked, probably for perpetuity,” Bond said. “I guess it’s Bond and Murray or Murray and Bond, whatever way you want to put it around.

“And I’m comfortable with that. “Each of us couldn’t have done it without the other and each of us is an important cog. So I’m comfortable with being part of a team, a small one at that but it’s still a team.” Bond said he hadn’t had a lot of time to comprehend the significance of the honour. “I’ve been busy,” the Olympic gold medallist said, training right up until a few hours before [the] ceremony with the goal of repeating the success he’s already had. “You don’t get sick of [awards],” Bond said. “I personally didn’t start out rowing to receive awards or anything like that. We just wanted to see how far we could go in the sport. “[The] award is probably recognition of the impact sport has on the community and the public at large and that’s something that we’ve noticed since coming

will keep coming. “It’s pretty obvious what the goal is ... to carry on winning. “We’ve achieved really everything as far as accolades in our sport and our event but I guess the challenge at this stage is to do it all again.”

Still no solution for bus run By Myles Hume Temporary funding for a Mount Hutt College bus that transports pupils from Rakaia will be cut next month, leaving the college to come up with an alternative way to continue the bus run. Principal John Schreurs said he was in talks with the Ministry of Education, but the college would have to conjure up a solution to

fund the bus for the rest of the year, and in the future, after the ministry slashes its temporary funding at the start of June. However, Mr Schreurs said it was too early to say what those options were. “The ministry have funded the run until June, and as soon as we were aware of that we told parents,” he said. At the end of last year, the Ministry of Education told the college that it

was not entitled to funding that transported about 40 pupils to and from Rakaia each day because the bus was travelling outside the Transport Entitlement Zone (TEZ). The news came as a shock to pupils and parents who faced the prospect of losing their transport to school or having to fork out hundreds of dollars each to continue the run. Only giving the college a small timeframe to make a decision, the

ministry decided to grant a six month extension and said it would fund the bus until June this year. Yesterday, Mr Schreurs said the college was yet to make a decision on how the bus would continue for the rest of the year. In the past it has been hinted that a cost-sharing arrangement between the college and affected parents could be an option. “I’m in talks with the ministry asking for clarification about the rules

around busing and interpretations,” Mr Schreurs said. When it was revealed to parents and the college late last year that the bus may be cut, it caused widespread concern. Mr Schreurs said he was “frustrated” with the way it was handled by the ministry, who later said they would extend the funding. “The whole thing seemed to be a bit hasty which made it hard to focus on what we needed to do.”

Seven Mid Canterbury firefighters will climb the Auckland Sky Tower tomorrow, to raise money for leukaemia in a nationwide fundraiser. A six-strong Rakaia crew left for Auckland this morning, to take part in the annual Firefighter Sky Tower Stair Challenge for the first time. Methven firefighter Rob Markillie is also taking part.

Traditionally, the event sees more than 400 firefighters from around the country battle their way to the top of the Sky Tower in full firefighter gear – weighing up to 25kg. Firefighters race to the top, climbing 1103 steps and 51 floors in the process. Tyrone Burrowes, of Rakaia, said he was looking forward to the challenge – having trained for the occasion over the past few weeks. “The support has been great right

A Methven fire engine, driven by brigade chief Selwyn Allred, is dwarfed by a dawn redwood tree which obscures motorist visibility.

Methven’s tree woes continue By Susan Sandys Methven Volunteer Fire Brigade members say trees in roadside berms in the town have nearly caused them to crash on the way to emergencies. The brigade is the latest voice to be added to the call for the Ashburton District Council to trim the trees, following the mayor last month and residents in recent years. The council planted the approximate 20 dawn redwoods along Main Street as part of a town beautification project about 15 years ago. The alpine-style trees have been growing ever since, and are expected to ultimately reach the height of a three-storey building.

Brigade chief Selwyn Allred said yesterday that trees at the corner of McKerrow Street and Main Street were proving an issue for the brigade. When fire engines came to the corner, after leaving the station on McKerrow Street, motorists coming down Main Street could not see them as they were obscured by the trees - one either side of McKerrow Street. Additionally, the trees blocked the view of the fire appliance driver along Main Street. “And there’s been times pulling out of there with lights and sirens going and cars coming along haven’t seen us, so we do see it as a danger to us,” Mr Allred said. “We have had some close calls.” The issue was mainly the width of the trees, as opposed to their

Yesterday’s result

Guilty plea welcomed in animal welfare case Federated Farmers welcomes a dairy farm-owning company’s decision to admit guilt to animal cruelty charges sends a strong deterrent message. Yesterday, in a Rotorua court, South Island-based company MilkPride changed its plea to charges laid by the former Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. MilkPride has now admitted one representative charge of failing to provide proper and sufficient food to 392 dairy cows on Taharua Farm near Taupo, in September and October 2009. When the trial opened on Monday, the company pleaded not guilty to 625 charges of failing to provide more than 1000 cows with sufficient food and water or wilfully ill-treating them. Ministry inspectors and staff reported a number of the cows were in such poor condition they were destroyed. “With sentencing yet to be passed we are pretty much limited to what we can say,” Federated Farmers’ Dairy chairperson Willy Leferink said. “Farmers like me were troubled by what we saw and the public deserve to know it is not representative of dairy farming. In this case, farming was both on trial but farming was also part of the prosecution.  “I wish to acknowledge the work of DairyNZ’s early intervention team, Federated Farmers members and the Ministry for Primary Industries itself. “New Zealand has strong laws on animal welfare.  We don’t pay lip service to it and it is central to good farm management.  “This was also reinforced yesterday by the Animal Welfare Amendment Bill being introduced into Parliament. “The guilty plea to a representative charge will now save the taxpayer the expense of a longer trial.” Mr Leferink, who has farms in Mid Canterbury, said farmers know that good animal welfare is good for business.  “A happy cow is a good producer so maltreating them not only destroys value, it hits production,” he said.


height. They either need to be trimmed back very seriously or removed altogether,” Mr Allred said. Last month at a Methven Community Board meeting, mayor Angus McKay spoke of his concern that a car crash may result from the trees obscuring motorists’ vision. Motorists in the ski town have grumbled about the trees for years, with one or two even taking to trimming them themselves over the years. Council chief executive Brian Lester said yesterday that he had asked his roading and street services manager to report on whether the trees were a traffic hazard. “If any trees are found to be a hazard the council will then


look at how best to address any issues, which may include pruning or removal of trees,” Mr Lester said. When they were planted the trees had been “an important component of the overall look of the town centre and were agreed to by the Methven community as part of the redesign process”, he said. “Because of the importance of the trees to the design and look of the town centre the council would be reluctant to have any removed but road safety is the council’s primary concern.” The trees are dawn redwoods, one of few deciduous conifer species in the world. The species was considered extinct before being rediscovered in China in the 1940s.

Opportunity goes begging By Sue Newman Methven has a one-off opportunity to create a strong community hub, says Ashburton District Councillor Martin Nordqvist. He believes that with the village’s earthquake damaged museum and library about to be demolished the best outcome for Methven would be to have the two organisations move in to the Methven Heritage Centre. “We’ve spent about $6 million on the heritage centre. We have this wonderful up-to-date facility and we’re not using it to its capacity,” he said. Bringing the three organisations together was about making the best use of facilities, Mr Norqvist said. “This is an opportunity. I accept it is difficult but I just hope we don’t look back in 10 years and say we wish we’d done something about this.” There had been considerable discussion around the option, but no consensus had been reached between the three groups, he said. “The library committee all the way through has been of the view that they wanted their own stand alone building. The Historical Society was a little more receptive to the idea. There’s certainly been some robust discussion. A lot of talking has to go on before any stakes are driven in the ground. I hope there is still some room for negotiation.” Graham Robertson, chair of the Methven Heritage Centre management board, said his board would look at any option that was to the mutual advantage of the three groups. “We’re open to any approach, it’s all about making a one-stop shop

for all community facilities.” Members of the library and historical society committees do not see things quite the same way, however. Historical society chair Kathryn McKendry said her organisation had looked at all options but believed joining forces with the library in a stand-alone building was the best outcome. “We had an agreement two years ago where we said we’d join forces with the library and we haven’t changed our minds on this. At our AGM we’ll be moving to formalise our agreement with the library.” One of the biggest disincentives to becoming part of the Heritage Centre was the fear that the two groups would lose their own identities, Mrs McKendry said. “Two voluntary groups working together seemed a good fit. We feel we’re making the right decision for the right reasons.” Advisors from Te Papa looked at a range of options for the library and museum and joining the two in a new building was their recommendation, she said. While it likely to miss out on two new tenants, the Heritage Centre still has a $600,000 debt for construction on its books. It is built on council owned land with the hall, the I-site and the cafe signed over into council ownership. The Heritage Centre has not been signed over to the council and there is no provision in the council’s budget for this to be signed over into council ownership. Fundraising was continuing to clear the debt, Mr Robertson said, but put in perspective it was a relatively small amount of the overall cost of the project.

Betham sports awards guest speaker By Jonathan Leask

Former New Zealand league international and professional boxer Monty Betham will headline the Mid Canterbury Sports Awards at the Hotel Ashburton next Friday. Betham will be the guest speaker but the evening will be hosted by TV presenter Charlotte Bellis. While the night is about celebrating Mid Canterbury’s outstanding athletes, teams and coaches from the past year, Betham will provide the evening’s entertainment. Betham played 101 games for the New Zealand Warriors in the NRL, nine tests for the Kiwis and had one sea-

son in the UK Super League for Wakefield before turning to boxing in 2006. He had no previous boxing experience, but Betham was a black belt in karate, winning a Bronze medal at the Junior World Championships and at the age of 16 won the New Zealand men’s open before concentrating on his career in league. He retired from boxing at the end of 2007 with an unbeaten five professional bout record. Betham founded the Steps for Life Foundation in 2009, an organisation set up to battle youth obesity. He got back in the ring in 2011 to box Shane Cameron in the Fight For Life. While Betham will be the

main speaker of the evening, hosting the event is Prime news presenter Charlotte Bellis, who also has a sporting background. As a promising young tennis player, she received a scholarship that allowed her to study at the Missouri School of Journalism and went on to work in various roles for American news outlets before she returned home to Christchurch. Like Betham, Bellis has also spent time in the ring fighting real estate agent Emma Lindsay in the 2011 Fight For Life. -Tickets for next Friday’s awards are still on sale from Sport Canterbury, Mid Canterbury office in the Midland Seed Building, 393 West Street.

With the exception of Ms Campbell and Dave Wright, who arrived on their own pimped-up machines, the rest of the competitiors used scooters provided by Ashburton mobility scooter retailer Fred Reddecliffe – including the Guardian’s chief reporter Michelle Nelson and photographer Kirsty Clay.

Each competitor rode two laps against the clock, and then the top six completed another circuit to decide the winner. Ms Campbell whittled back her time on each successive lap, from 36.49 seconds, down to a trim 32.09 seconds, closely followed by Mrs Clay who stopped the clock at 34.47 seconds.

Buddy system boosted By Sam Morton An Ashburton buddy programme has been given a cash boost to help support the programme’s aim. In the latest Community Trust funding round, Presbyterian Support Ashburton received $5000, benefitting alongside the Order of St John, The Victoria Trust and South Canterbury’s Women’s Wellness Centre. The Presbyterian Support Buddy Programme recruits adult mentors to coach young children, aged 5 to 12, and has established a strong reputation among the community. The adult mentors spend time with the children in the hope of teaching them new life skills and inspiring them, which in turn helps build a social connection between the pair. Presbyterian Support regional manager Jackie Girvan

said she was delighted with the funding – which would help grow the programme in Mid Canterbury. “It’s absolutely fantastic and double what we received last year, so I’m delighted,” she said. “The Buddy Programme is going really well, but we’re always on the lookout for new mentors, so if there is anyone out there that wants to spend their time inspiring children, we’d love to hear from them.” Mentors can range between 20 and 60 years of age, with the majority of mentors spending about one year with the child. In their final decision, the Community Trust appreciated the work of the organisation and supported their goals to continue training, recruiting and monitoring the work of the chosen Buddies. The Buddy Programme has been operating for almost 10 years.

Grant a big positive for art gallery, museum A

fter years of heated and controversial debate about the Art Gallery and Heritage Centre it was a nice change to report a wonderful positive development in the project. The Lotteries grant of $700,000 is a massive step towards the remaining funding for the building’s fit-out and especially for its sophisticated climate control system. The latter has now been paid for with $500,000 tagged by the Lotteries Commission for the climate control system. Following years of discussions

OUR VIEW and protests inside and outside of council chambers it is nice to see the building actually going up on West Street, even though it is hard to imagine the project in its full glory from the concrete slabs that have so far been erected. The recent miniature display of what the inside of the museum will look like was also another helpful tool to make this project more real, as it has been an abstract concept for so long.

Many in the community still grumble about the cost of the building and the way decisions were made, but those people can show their displeasure in the polling booth later this year. Even the hard-core opponents have to accept defeat and start looking at what this new building will offer the citizens and visitors to the district. It was interesting to see that the Lotteries Commission clearly embraced the concept

Coen Lammers editor

of combining Ashburton’s museum, art gallery and archives under one roof. Normally the commission only awards part of the amount applicants ask for but it decided to fund the full sum of this application.

At times it is helpful to see a local development through the eyes of outside experts to fully appreciate its merits. Once completed the facility in West Street should become a landmark building for those in the district and those passing through. Most visitors will currently only be able to name the domain or McDonald’s as their point of reference so there is a massive opportunity to market the district and the art gallery for the thousands who pass through each year. The exposure of our local


heritage and local artists exhibiting in the new gallery should see a significant increase if only a smidgeon of those motorists pulls over. Anyone who doubts whether the new complex will attract visitors only has to look at the Ashburton Trust Event Centre. Build it and they will come, the old Romans used to say and this has definitely been the case for the Event Centre. Celebrating its fifth anniversary this week, the Event Centre has been a magnet for local, national and international

attractions, many of which would never had considered Ashburton as a destination in the past. Projects like the Event Centre, the Gallery and Heritage Centre and the new EA Networks Stadium put this district on the map and make it a better place to live. Clearly the majority of the people, and the Lotteries Commission, agree judging by the successful fundraising. The gallery still needs $700,000 for the finishing touches so hopefully the community can once again come to the party.

Unemployment rate falls to three-year low

By Paul McBeth


New Zealand’s jobless rate fell to a three-year low as growing employment opportunities in Canterbury fuelled growth. The unemployment rate fell to 6.2 per cent in the March quarter from a revised 6.8 per cent three months earlier, according to Statistics New Zealand’s household labour force survey. That was lower than what economists were predicting, and spurred the kiwi dollar to gain half a US cent, recently trading at 84.40 cents. Much of the strength was driven by Canterbury, where the jobless rate tumbled 21 per cent to 4.3 per cent and the participation rate and employment rates both climbed. But the figures point to some improvement nationwide, as ex-Canterbury unemployment fell to 6.5 per cent from 7.2 per cent. The number of people in work climbed by 38,000, or 1.7 per cent

Two people were hurt, one seriously, and a major Auckland highway was blocked when a car crashed while fleeing police in Auckland last evening. Police said a driver fled from police when they tried to stop him and drove onto the Ellerslie Panmure Highway where he crashed into another vehicle about 6.20pm. The driver, who was a suspended driver, was hurt but police said his injuries were not lifethreatening. The driver of the other car suffered minor injuries but her passenger was uninjured. A St John Ambulance spokesman said three people were treated at the scene. Two were taken to Auckland Hospital, one in a serious condition and one with minor injuries. News cameraman Geoff Mackley arrived at the scene within about two minutes of the crash. “It was swarming with police and unmarked police cars, plainly evidence of a car chase,’’ he said. He spoke to about six residents who lived in the nearby area, all of whom said they heard a large number of sirens followed by a “huge bang’’. It appeared one car had “T -boned’’ another, causing

in the quarter to 2.23 million, the biggest jump since the series began in March 1986, while the participation rate improved to 67.8 per cent from 67.2 per cent. Business NZ greeted the survey’s findings with “cautious optimism”. Chief executive Phil O’Reilly said the figures could bounce around between quarters, but the underlying trend was positive. “The figures overall send a message that it is important to continue to focus on policies that promote a strong economy and business confidence, so businesses - in particular small and medium businesses - continue to create jobs. “With regard to youth employment, the need for a focus on young people gaining employable skills is paramount. It is critically important for our schools, families and education and training systems to make this our highest priority,” Mr O’Reilly said. - APNZ

Gilmore digs in; refuses to go By Isaac Davison National list MP Aaron Gilmore says he will not resign, in a clear sign of defiance of the wishes of the Prime Minister and his party hierarchy. After attending question time yesterday, Mr Gilmore would not stop to talk to media but when asked if he was going to resign, he said “no”. He repeated it when asked again. Mr Gilmore lost the support of Prime Minister John Key on Wednesday night, after text messages released on Wednesday cast doubt on whether he’d been honest over his encounter with a barman in Hanmer. Mr Gilmore was believed to have gone to ground but he arrived in the House for question time, avoiding media on his way. Mr Key said yesterday afternoon he was powerless to do anything if a defiant Mr Gilmore said he would not resign. But Mr Key said he had not lost control of the MP. He told media yesterday afternoon that he still could not reconcile Mr Gilmore’s word with the events at a Hanmer hotel last week. “Mr Gilmore has to be able to look the New Zealand public in the eye and say his version of the events that actually occurred.

When told the MP would not resign, Mr Key said: “It’s in his hands now”. “He can make his own decision.” Yesterday morning Mr Key signalled strongly Mr Gilmore should quit. He told Radio Live he had not received an honest answer from Mr Gilmore about the dinner at the Hanmer Hotel where he allegedly told a barman who refused him alcohol he would have the Prime Minister fire him. When Mr Key was asked if the backbench MP should quit, he said: “If he can’t reconcile what happened on that night in the way that he’s described it to me, then the answer would have to be ‘yes’.” While interviewed on Radio Live he described Mr Gilmore’s story as being like “quicksand”. The matter was on Wednesday referred to National Party president Peter Goodfellow, suggesting Mr Gilmore won’t be a runner for the party list prior to the 2014 election. Mr Key said yesterday afternoon the MP was a “distraction” from what had been a good week for National, with the float of Mighty River Power and improved job numbers. “The vast bulk of Kiwis would say: ‘Who cares about Aaron Gilmore?’.” - APNZ

Christchurch man Net closing in on Routeburn tagger dies from burns By Tracey Roxburgh

A Christchurch man who allegedly had petrol poured over him before being set alight has died in hospital from his injuries. Terrance Martin Smith, 55, was found suffering serious burns at a Woolston property on April 25. He was taken to Christchurch Hospital in a critical condition and was transferred to Middlemore Hospital the next day for specialist treatment.

Mr Smith’s condition did not improve and he died from his from injuries about 6.30pm on Wednesday. Jason Alistor Barr, 42, of Waltham and Shay Barry Webster, 20, of Woolston, are jointly charged with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. Police are now consider ing laying further charges, Detective Senior Sergeant Darryl Sweeney said. - APNZ

The net is closing in on the person responsible for tagging “Rowdy” in felt pen along the Routeburn Track last month, with reports the perpetrator has left their mark all over the South Island. Department of Conservation Wakatipu area manager Greg Lind said the same tag seen along the 32km Routeburn Track had been reported at the Franz Josef Glacier access facility and the Wanaka skate park over the past few days.

Staff at the Humpridge Track said yesterday the tag “Rowdy” had also been found outside the office in Tuatapere at the weekend. Mr Lind said suspicion had been cast over a group of school pupils visiting from Australia, but the party had been ruled out as it did not visit the West Coast or Tuatapere. Public feedback had been extremely helpful in building a timeline, he said. “Whoever did it [on the Routeburn Track] walked from the Glenorchy end to the Divide - they [the tags] are all on one

side.” Doc believed the person responsible had tagged the track on April 19 or 20, at Franz Josef between April 23 and 26 and in Tuatapere last weekend. Mr Lind said there was a possibility a copycat tagger was involved in some of the vandalism, or that the person responsible had been spurred on by publicity. “Taggers like publicity ... Any publicity they’re getting is really good for them [but] it’s just vandalism as far as I’m concerned.” The wider community had expressed “severe disappoint-

ment” about what had happened. Mr Lind said staff had spoken to all but one of their leads - Mr Lind was following that lead up with police. The person responsible could be charged under the National Parks Act 1980 with wilfully damaging or defacing a fence, building or apparatus; or unlawfully altering, obliterating or defacing signs and marks, including boundary marks. The maximum penalty under the Act was three months’ imprisonment or a $2500 fine. - APNZ

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, May 10, 2013


Police faulted in car chase By APNZ staff Police say they will change the way they handle pursuits after three people died while fleeing police in Gisborne. The crash in July last year claimed the lives of driver Dylan James Kingi, 28, and two of his passengers, Peter John Bunyan, 27, and Holly Kay Gunn, 25. A third passenger, Claire Sophie Badger, 25, was seriously injured. A report into the incident by the Independent Police Conduct Authority found numerous errors in the way the pursuit was conducted and the officer involved failed to follow correct procedures. The report said the officer’s speed of 127km/h in a 50km/h zone was too risky, and the officer didn’t meet policies regarding siren use, reporting speed limits, and abandoning the pursuit. The authority also recommended all patrol cars be fitted with hands-free radios so officers would not be forced to drive onehanded during pursuits. Eastern District Commander Superintendent Sam Hoyle accepted the authority’s findings and had already reinforced to staff police policy around fleeing drivers. “The officer involved in the incident has undergone remedial training and has been recertified as a ‘gold’ licensed driver under the Professional Police Driving Programme (PPDP). “He is well aware now of his responsibilities should such an event occur again,” Mr Hoyle said. All staff would be “extra vigilant” in any future pursuits they undertake, he said. Mr Hoyle said communications centres were also reviewing their

practices for handing control of fleeing driver incidents from one supervisor to another. “The dispatcher involved in this incident has undergone refresher training in the requirements of the fleeing driver policy, and the pursuit controller has been reminded of the policy’s abandonment procedures.” The pursuit after Mr Kingi failed to stop after a police officer spotted him speeding in his car in a 50km/h zone. When the officer notified police central communications, the dispatcher mistakenly noted that the pursuit was taking place in a 100km/h zone, rather than a 50km/h zone, and later also misheard the name of the street. Shortly afterwards the officer lost sight of the fleeing car after mistakenly turning to follow the wrong vehicle. He didn’t follow policy for abandoning a pursuit which required officers to stop, turn off lights and sirens, and inform police communications, the report said. The officer continued looking for the fleeing vehicle, and found the crash scene a short distance away. A crash investigation found the car had slid off the road after taking a corner at between 130km/h and 136km/h. Mr Kingi, who had four drinkdriving convictions, was found to have more than double the blood alcohol limit. The authority concluded the officer was correct in starting the pursuit, which covered 2.5km in 1.5 minutes. However the officer’s speed of 127km/h in a 50km/h zone was not justified, and the pursuit should have been abandoned earlier. - APNZ

Georgie Pie’s back but not in South Island By Christopher Adams Starting early next month, McDonald’s will begin selling a single Georgie Pie product at 11 of its restaurants in Auckland and Waikato, and isn’t ruling out a return of standalone Georgie Pie stores. The Steak Mince ‘N’ Cheese pie will have a $4.50 price tag - a far cry from the $1 pies remembered by nostalgic fans of the Georgie Pie chain, which was shut down by McDonald’s in the late 1990s after the Golden Arches acquired the business from supermarket operator Progressive Enterprises. The introduction of the pies was a pilot project, but a return of Georgie Pie stores was possible, said head of communications McDonald’s, Simon Kenny. “To set up a McDonald’s restaurant costs typically between four and five million dollars and a standalone Georgie Pie restau-

rant would be a similar cost,” Mr Kenny said. “So to jump in and build a standalone restaurant in a trial wouldn’t make sense, but you never say never.” McDonald’s said the pies would be produced to the original recipe, and the only significant alteration was the removal of monosodium glutamate, or MSG, a controversial food additive. The pies will be manufactured at the former Georgie Pie production facility in Manukau by Goodman Fielder, which purchased the plant from Progressive Enterprises. Georgie Pie’s former general manager, Brian Popham, had been brought in to consult on the product development process, McDonald’s said. The pies will initially be available at McDonald’s stores in Auckland’s Greenlane and Queen St. Stores in Albany (Coliseum Drive), Kelston, St Lukes mall, Ti Rakau Drive and Mangere will begin selling the pies shortly after. -APNZ



ARIES (Mar 21st Apr 20th) Your word skills will take on a silkier vibe in the next three weeks as Venus passes through the vibrant energies of Gemini. Getting together with the important people in your life and sharing the good things can certainly bring great pleasure. You might decide to organize a barbecue or host a party and can do these wonderfully well.

TAURUS (Apr 21st May 21st) Your love of the good things in life is set to be accentuated now, and whether your personal preference for these comes through shopping at your local mall, natural products, or those which are more exclusive, it doesn’t really matter. The trick is not to let any upsurge in your income get spent too quickly, for there is a chance of this now. makes $100,000 donation Hip-hop star has donated $100,000 to help lowdecile Auckland schools provide information technology to students. The US singer, songwriter and producer who rose to fame as a member of the Black Eyed Peas, was brought to New Zealand for a private show on Wednesday night. The star made a surprise appearance at Point England Primary School in east Auckland yesterday afternoon where he presented a $100,000 cheque to digital literacy charity the Manaiakalani Education Trust. Its executive officer, Jenny

Oxley, said’s philanthropic work in the US corresponded closely with what the trust was trying to achieve here, in providing children in low socioeconomic areas with the means to participate in the digital age. “He has his own charity in the States that encourages digital literacy, particularly in low socio-economic communities, and as part of his visit here he came across information about Manaiakalani and made this wonderful gesture to us.” The children were extremely excited to see the star in person. “It was all pretty top secret until

“He’s clearly a very humble guy, very bright guy and it was great seeing him in person,” Ms Oxley said. The 38-year-old was brought to New Zealand to attend Hallensteins’ Ultimate After Party at Studio on K Rd where he performed songs from his new album at the private show. He said he was looking forward to exploring New Zealand. “After tonight’s party I’m looking forward to chalking up some new memories, so when I get back I can have something good to tell the folks back in America.” - APNZ

Fears expressed over compromises By Abby Gillies A property buyers’ advocate says that while it is positive a political party is tackling the problems around affordable housing, it would be “irresponsible” if that resulted in compromising construction quality. Labour has promised first homebuyers their first foot onto the property ladder for no more than $300,000 in a plan to tackle the country’s housing crisis. The party’s leader David Shearer and its housing spokesman Phil Twyford yesterday met industry representatives including housing, architecture, banking, construction, council and legal experts to discuss how to implement the party’s ambitious KiwiBuild pro-

ject. “They’re all contributing from their point of view, how we can get housing to be affordable,” said Mr Shearer. “Some of it’s been critical, some of it’s been positive but it’s all been constructive.” Home Owners and Buyers Association of New Zealand president John Gray said there were still several questions around the proposed market price that needed to be answered. “We are all concerned that in order to bring construction costs down to achieve the proposed price point there may have to be compromises in the quality and sustainability of these homes. “We say that it would be irresponsible to allow that to happen and there are other ways to reduce the end-to-end cost including alter-


GEMINI (May 22nd Jun 21st) Someone may drop a major hint in your direction today and it may be that they’d like to get to know you a whole lot better.

today and so the kids didn’t know who was coming, they just knew it was an important celebrity, but they were over the moon,” Ms Oxley said. The money would go towards the trust’s programmes of providing netbooks to students and their families, building its own wireless network for students, and supporting e-learning for teachers and parents. The singer, whose real name is William Adams, talked to students about his modest beginnings in a Los Angeles ghetto, how he never knew his father and was driven by a desire to provide for his mother.

native funding models, release of Crown land for development and central and local government bearing more of the cost burden of the development costs related to creating these new communities,” he said. Labour’s large-scale plan aimed to deliver 10,000 “modest entry-level” stand-alone, terrace and apartments every year for 10 years. The houses will be sold for an average of $300,000 across the country. Only 5 per cent of houses currently being built were in the affordable range, and the growing supply problem would have a long-term national impact, said Mr Shearer. “In Auckland in particular, house prices are going through the roof and first home buyers aren’t getting a look in.”

The high cost of building new homes, global financial crisis and land supply issues have contributed to rising housing costs, causing many people to leave the country, said Mr Twyford. Under KiwiBuild the sale of bonds and profits from houses sold would be used to generate the money needed to pay for the self-funding project. Prime Minister John Key has previously scoffed at the plan he described as a “fantasyland” idea. He said a $300,000 limit would mean finding sections in Auckland for $50,000 - an impossible feat. But Mr Shearer disagreed: “Certainly for apartments, for terrace houses, that sort of construction, averaged out, I believe we can do much much better than we’re doing at the moment.” - APNZ

LEO (Jul 24th - Aug 23rd) You could attract the limelight today and this could see you receive some plaudits. If you have been feeling the pressure of your responsibilities, you may be pleasantly surprised by who speaks out for you or gives you discreet support. The chances are that you may have more fans and be more appreciated than you had realised.

VIRGO (Aug 24th Sep 23rd) If you are someone with a natural love of gleaning information, you can find yourself proactive today, perhaps searching for insights online or in your local library, or extending connections further afield. This would also be a good day to check out academic or training course possibilities. Curiosity can certainly be an asset.

LIBRA (Sep 24th Oct 23rd) You may need to probe some information and then ask some pertinent questions. However, if this is so, the arrival of Venus in your sister Air sign of Gemini today suggests that the best way to do this is diplomatically. If you do try to pin down someone’s position they could prove elusive, so its better to tease what you want out of them.

SCORPIO (Oct 24th - Nov 22nd) The most passionate side of your nature is set to be aroused in the next three weeks. This could see more intensity creep into your love life but today, ironically, you are asked to retain both an air of detachment and an ability to stand back from events and not get too caught up in emotion. Talk with a trusted confidant if need be.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23rd - Dec 21st) The next three weeks can be fabulous for restoring harmony and balance into your relationships - that is of course, if any are currently out of kilter. Even if none are, this can be a fab time to forge new alliances, to build co-operation, and also to become more conscious of the needs of those people you interact with closely.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd - Jan 20th) Muster as much mental dexterity as possible today. The faster you are on the uptake, the better you can do. This can see you multi-task and be inventive, and not short of applying your great sense of fun either. In fact, by making people laugh you can make some serious points in a way which will make them much more receptive.

AQUARIUS (Jan 21st - Feb 19th) Venus glides into a fab zone for your sign today, opening up the proverbial window of opportunity as far as your love and social lives are concerned. If you have felt more like spending time at home, even alone in solitude, this is a reminder not to forsake the other part of your nature which is more gregarious and outgoing.


PISCES (Feb 20th Mar 20th) Words can come easily today. But as much as this may give you extra zip and vivacity, equally, you may say something in a split second that you may later regret. If you are meeting anyone who tends to have a more sensitive side to their nature, just be mindful of how easy it is to say the wrong thing. You may talk to a sibling too today.

Rare baby sloths finally make public show Two sloth bear cubs are seen on exhibit with their mom Hani at the Brookfield Zoo in Brookfield. Until this week, the 3½-month-old male and female cubs, born January 20 have been off exhibit with their mother in a maternity den. A total of fewer than 20,000 bears are thought to remain in the wild. There is evidence of wild populations having declined 30 to 49 per cent in the last 30 years due to deforestation and poaching mainly for the medicinal market. Currently, there are 39 sloth bears exhibited at 18 North American zoos accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

The man who was the original voice of Charlie Brown in Peanuts television specials was sentenced yesterday to a year in jail for threatening his former girlfriend and stalking her plastic surgeon, then immediately released to a residential drug treatment centre.

• Ship hits port Nine people are feared dead after a container ship crashed in Italy’s busiest port of Genoa, bringing down a 50-metre control tower in an accident that revived memories of last year’s Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster.

Aussie life trends subject of study

Jury finds ‘justice’ for boyfriend A US woman has been convicted of first-degree murder in the gruesome killing of her one-time boyfriend after a four-month trial that captured headlines with lurid tales of sex, lies, religion and a salacious relationship that ended in a blood bath. Jodi Arias was charged with first-degree murder in the June 2008 death of Travis Alexander in his Arizona home. Authorities said she planned the attack in a jealous rage. Arias initially denied involvement, then blamed the killing on masked intruders. Two years after her arrest, she said it was self-defence. Testimony began in early January, with Arias eventually spending 18 days on the witness stand. The trial snowballed into a made-for-the-tabloids drama, garnering daily coverage from cable news networks and spawning a virtual cottage industry for talk shows, legal experts and even Arias, who used her notoriety to sell artwork she made in jail. The trial will move into a phase during which prosecutors will argue the killing was committed in an especially cruel, heinous and depraved manner, called the “aggravation” phase. Both sides may call witnesses and show evidence. The jurors are the same. A mob of spectators gathered outside the courthouse to learn

the verdict, while TV crews, media trucks and reporters lined nearby streets. Family and friends of Alexander wore blue ribbons and wristbands with the words “Justice For Travis”. Alexander suffered nearly 30 knife wounds, was shot in the forehead and had his throat slit before Arias dragged his body into his shower. He was found by friends about five days later. Authorities said Alexander fought for his life as Arias attacked him in a blitz, but he soon grew too weak to defend himself. Arias said she recalled Alexander attacking her in a fury after a day of sex. She said Alexander came at her “like a linebacker,” bodyslamming her to the tile floor. She managed to wriggle free and ran into his closet to retrieve a gun he kept on a shelf. She said she fired in self-defence but had no memory of stabbing him. She acknowledged trying to clean the scene of the killing, dumping the gun in the desert and working on an alibi to avoid suspicion. She said she was too scared and ashamed to tell the truth. However, none of Arias’ allegations that Alexander had physically abused her in the months before his death, that he owned a gun and had sexual desires for young boys, were corroborated by - AP witnesses or evidence.

Mourners carry the casket of referee Ricardo Portillo along a street following a public wake. Portillo died a week after police say a 17-year-old player struck him in the head during a recreational league soccer game after the referee called a penalty against him.

Teen charged after football ref’s death A teen accused of punching a Mexican-born football referee who later died was charged yesterday with homicide by assault, a count issued when an attack unintentionally causes death. Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill also said he will seek to try the teen as an adult in the death of 46-year-old Ricardo Portillo. The charge is less serious than manslaughter. It carries a possible sentence of up to five years in prison for adults, but penalties can be less for juveniles. Gill said it became clear in

looking at the facts that the teenager’s actions didn’t amount to murder or manslaughter. The oldest of Portillo’s three daughters, Johana Portillo, declined comment about the charges through family spokesman Tony Yapias. She just wants to let the criminal justice system to run its course, Yapias said. Johana Portillo, 26, previously said the charge doesn’t matter because it won’t bring back her father. Friends and family spent yesterday remembering Ricardo Portillo at an afternoon wake

nesses said the teenager threw one punch, hitting Portillo in the rear jaw area with a closed fist. Another witness said Portillo was writing notes on his notepad when he was hit. Portillo was taken to a hospital in fair condition. Hours later, he went into a coma. He never regained consciousness and died. Police say hospital staff members told them Portillo had hemorrhaging and a traumatic brain injury.

that was followed by an evening religious service. The 17-year-old has been in juvenile detention since April 27 when the incident occurred at a recreational-league soccer match in a Salt Lake City suburb. The teenager turns 18 in October. His first court appearance has not yet been scheduled. The teenager was playing goalie when Portillo called a penalty on him for pushing an opposing player. The teenager began arguing with Portillo and then struck him in the head, authorities said. Charging documents show wit-

Australians are living longer but are sicker, are each throwing out about 361 kilograms of food annually and spending 35 more minutes commuting each week than a decade ago. These are among the insights captured in a landmark first report from the independent National Sustainability Council, launched in Sydney yesterday. Sustainability Minister Tony Burke said the 264-page tome offered a comprehensive set of indicators that could give “a sense of how we were doing, generation to generation”. The government-funded report does not make specific recommendations but examines trends in Australia’s environment, society, economy and collective wellbeing. Mr Burke said he hoped the biannual report would come to be treated much like job growth or GDP figures. “One of the things we were determined to make sure of was that we would eventually get to the point where people would follow sustainability indicators as closely as they would follow economic indicators,” he told the launch. Council chair John Thwaites said the report revealed a number of positive trends for life in Australia. Life expectancies were on the way up, crime was down, and education levels were rising. In the past decade the proportion of women with a bachelor degree had jumped from 21 per cent to 30 per cent, Professor Thwaites said. - APNZ

Coca-Cola says it will make lowercalorie options and clear calorie labeling more widely available around the world, intensifying a push against critics who say its drinks pack on the pounds. The Atlanta-based company, which makes Sprite, Fanta and Minute Maid, already offers diet drinks in most markets. But there’s no consistency in their availability, particularly in emerging markets such as China and India. Coca-Cola also said this week it would support programmes that encourage physical activity and no longer market to kids younger than 12. The company had made a similar promise in 2007 but said the new push would create a “global standard” for the commitment. It did not elaborate on what changes that would include or set a timetable on when it planned to meet its new goals. With sugary drinks often blamed for making people fat, Coca-Cola has been more aggressive in trying to convince customers its products can be part of a healthy lifestyle. Earlier this year, the company aired its first TV ad addressing the matter in the US and has since been rolling out the spot to other countries. The ad touts Coca-Cola’s wide range of lower-calorie offerings. But executives have also made a point of standing by the company’s full-calorie drinks, saying that physical activity plays an important role in fighting obesity. “There is a place for all of our beverages in a healthy lifestyle,” CEO Muhtar Kent said in a call with reporters.

Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent The announcement from Coca-Cola comes as packaged food companies across the industry look for growth in emerging markets, where middleclass populations are growing rapidly. As more people head to cities and see their incomes rise, health advocates have warned that growing consumption of packaged foods in such countries could fuel obesity rates as they have in developed nations. The shifting populations around the world nevertheless represent an enormous opportunity for companies. For example, Coca-Cola has noted that

Americans on average drink 403 servings of its various beverages a year. That compares with just 12 servings per year in India and 38 in China. And the company’s diet options aren’t nearly as popular in such countries as they are back at home. In the US, where soda consumption has been declining for years, diet drinks now account for 41 per cent of sales for the flagship Coke brand. That’s up from single-digits in the 1980s. Even in major Chinese cities, by contrast, the percentage of sales that diet options account for is in the “high

single digits,” Kent said. Coca-Cola says its goal is to have diet options available wherever regular versions are sold. But that doesn’t mean there would be a diet alternative for every particular brand. For example, if a store in India sells Coke it might also offer Sprite Zero, which doesn’t have any calories, to meet the goal. The company also says it’s working to have cans and bottles around the world display calories counts on the front of labels, as it does in the United States.  - AP

Spy base protesters appeal $1m liability By Matthew Backhouse Property owners would have to take the law into their own hands if the Court of Appeal accepted the legal argument put forward by three protesters who sabotaged a radar dome at the Waihopai spy base, the Crown’s lawyer says. The Crown is seeking to recover more than $1.2 million in damages from Dominican friar Peter Murnane, teacher Adrian Leason and farmer Sam Land. The trio cut through alarmed elec-

tric fences and slashed one of the two inflatable domes which cover the satellite dishes at the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) spy base at Waihopai, near Blenheim, in April 2008. A jury acquitted the men of burglary and wilful damage, but the High Court ruled the men were still liable for $1,229,289 in damages. The trio have appealed that decision in the Court of Appeal, arguing they are not liable for damages because the GCSB’s property was being used for illegal espionage which was not in New Zealand’s national interests.

The argument relies on a seldomused legal principle known as ‘ex turpi causa’, which holds that a party cannot bring a claim if they have acted unlawfully. Crown lawyer Austin Powell said the appellants’ argument was a massive extension of that principle which had wider implications for property rights. Property rights would be “virtually unenforceable” because police would have to be certain a property was not being used illegally before intervening. Mr Powell said that would encourage property owners to take matters into their own hands.

“That is not the law. No one has ever said that is the law.” Mr Powell said owning property in itself could not be illegal, regardless of whether the property was used illegally. He gave the example of a convicted drink driver who was still legally able to own a car. “It is not illegal for the Government to own an antenna or buildings or radomes,” Mr Powell said. Appeal lawyer Michael Knowles told the court that the men wanted a civil trial before a jury, to determine whether they owed damages to the spy agency.  - APNX


Optometrist suspended after teen loses eye An optometrist whose teenage patient lost an eye after he failed to diagnose a detached retina has been suspended for six months and ordered to pay $10,000 in costs. Whangarei optometrist Desmond John White, who owned and practised at Visualeyez until mid last year, has been censured by the Health Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal following the incident in 2010. Mr White examined then 16-year-old Jared McGiven on December 9, after the teenager failed the eyesight test when he went to get his learner drivers’ licence. He found an abnormality in Jared’s right eye, but he did not identify it as a detached retina. Mr White arranged to see the teenager for a second consultation on December 16, when he dilated Jared’s right eye and took more photographs. He told the teen and his mother Susan McGiven that the abnormality was probably nothing to worry about, and they should wait three months for another examination. But Mrs McGiven said she did not want to wait three months because they were worried about what the abnormality was. Mr White then said he would email the photograph of the eye to a specialist to have a look at. He showed the photograph to his friend, ophthalmologist Brian Kent-Smith, when he stopped by the practice on a casual visit five days later. Dr Kent-Smith said the patient should be referred to him, but Mr White did not do so until the following year, after Mrs McGiven rang the practice to raise her ongoing concern. It was not until February 7, 2011 - eight weeks after the first examination - that Mr White referred the teenager to Dr Kent-Smith. Dr Kent-Smith diagnosed a detached retina, and arranged for surgery but five operations failed to solve the problem and Jared’s right eye had to be removed.  - APNZ

Daniel Pearce: Shot 70 at the Muriwai Beach Links yesterday

Ashburton golfer Daniel Pearce finished two under in round one of the Murawai Open yesterday. Pearce carded a 70 at the Muriwai Beach Links course in the Charles Tour tournament to sit in a six-way tie for 20th after a rainy first day. New Zealand number one Michael Hendry took the lead with a seven under 65 to be one shot in front of amateur Jason Gulasekharam. The first year professional, who recorded his first win in the South Taranaki Pro-Am held at the Hawera Golf Club last month, is still well placed heading into today’s second round. Fresh in Pearce’s mind will be his last outing at the Taranaki

Open where he made a strong start only to fade badly and finish tied for 41st. A fellow newly turned pro Fraser Wilkin won the Muriwai Open a year ago, but as an amateur had to watch his good friend Ryan Fox walk off with the winner’s cheque. Wilkin is back for the $40,000 Charles Tour event and he, like Pearce, will be banking anything he wins after joining the paid ranks. However, a repeat victory will be tough with nine other former Charles Tour champions in the field, but Wilkin is in good form after winning in Taranaki with an eagle on the last hole. He continued that good form yesterday when he finished the first round tied for eighth after a four under 68.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, May 10, 2013


Crunch time looms for Rakaia, Celtic By Jonathan Leask It’s getting towards the business end of the Combined Country Cup rugby competition and two Mid Canterbury sides are well in the running heading into tomorrow’s seventh round. Rakaia currently sit in third in section one while in section two Celtic are in fifth place, and both face crunch matches. Rakaia hosts the second placed and undefeated Oxford in a match that could go a long way to determining second place. Oxford haven’t been overly convincing thus far, but have done enough to win all five of their matches, including a 10-9 win over defending champions Southbridge, the only team to have gotten the better of Rakaia so far. Elsewhere in section one Methven

is coming of a confidence-building first win of the season, grinding out a 17-13 win over Kaiapoi, to face fellow strugglers West Melton away this weekend in the bottom of the table clash.

After six losses in a row, Southern will be chomping at the bit to beat Prebbleton

Over in section two Lincoln and Ashley are locked in for the top four but it’s a three way fight for the remaining two spots with Celtic, Glenmark and Waihora all tied on 19.

Celtic have a crucial clash tomorrow, making the long haul to Glenmark, who went close to being the first team to topple Ashley going down 34-29. Hampstead remain an outside chance of a top four spot but they will need to do what Glenmark couldn’t and be the first team to beat Ashley, and do it a long way from home. Hampstead’s away record wasn’t looking that good until they won away to Prebbleton last week. After six losses in a row, Southern will be chomping at the bit to beat Prebbleton, who despite having two wins under their belt are only three points ahead of the Southern men, who have managed to earn five bonus points. One of those was in last week’s heart-breaking last minute loss to Celtic after a long range penalty on the last play of the game saw them go down 32-29.

• 1st XV chase first win The Ashburton College 1st XV will be aiming for their first win when they host Nayland College in the second round of the Crusaders Secondary School Rugby Competition tomorrow. College play at home, but at a different venue with the game to be played at the Allenton rugby grounds, for the second week in a row but looking for a better result. A sluggish start in both halves had College suffer a 20-31 loss to Marlborough last weekend.

• Week off for seniors With the first round of New Zealand football’s Chatham Cup this weekend the Mid Canterbury senior side has the weekend off. In division four Mid Canterbury Eastern are away to Amberley and Methven International host Halswell United in division five while the Mid Canterbury Masters are at home to Cashmere Technical. The Mid Canterbury Youth XI also hosts Cashmere Technical in the under 18 division one.

Calder Stewart finds Tinwald on a roll a new leading man By Jonathan Leask

By Jonathan Leask In the absence of one marquee rider the Mid Canterbury based Team Calder Stewart Road has pulled in another top class rider for the third round of the Benchmark Series. Star recruit Tim Rush is leading the way for the team after two rounds sitting third equal overall, but he is currently riding in Australia meaning he will miss tomorrow’s Hanmer-to-Kaikoura race. However, team manager Bruce McClelland has pulled in a new gun to lead the team taking on the talented young cyclist Alex McGregor. “He is an accomplished cyclist from Dunedin. “The Otago team’s moved into the masters grade this year and so he couldn’t get a ride so we pulled him in,” McClelland said. The 22-year-old McGregor comes in with some red hot form having won the Tour de Lakes and was

then the runner-up at the club road nationals in April. The 133km Hanmer-to-Kaikoura race has been re-introduced to the series this year and boasts an impressive winners’ list in the past including Ashburton professional rider Hayden Roulston in 2007. The Calder Stewart masters will also have Reon Park, a late withdrawal from the Nelson leg, who could feature. “It’s going to be an interesting wee ride. “You can pinpoint a favourite prerace but no-one knows what can happen out on the road and what moves the other riders will make.” Over in the women’s race Hinds track cyclist Lauren Ellis starts the 99km women’s race in the tour leader’s jersey after picking up an impressive win in Nelson last month. Ellis will look to maintain her good form on the road but will have plenty of competition with the largest women’s field ever assembled for Alex McGregor: In red-hot form going a Benchmark Series round. into the Hanmer-to-Kaikoura race

Tinwald make a second trip to Timaru in four days in the Mid South Canterbury hockey competition tomorrow. The Tinwald men take on Tainui in Timaru tomorrow full of confidence after a strong showing against Cambridge on Wednesday night. After being on the wrong end of some big score lines Tinwald came out and surprised their hosts, holding the scores to nil-all in the first half. Tinwald then had Cambridge under pressure and took the lead 10 minutes after halftime through George Murray. The lead didn’t last long as Cambridge responded with a goal of their own and the game went back into a grind that looked destined for a draw. However, the game changed when Cambridge was awarded a stroke which they were able to put past goalie Michael Dekker. The goal put Cambridge in front and changed the balance as Cambridge then converted a penalty

The Wakanui hockey teams are coming off a 1-1 draw last week corner to eventually take a 3-1 win, leaving Tinwald coach Ian Snowball with mixed feelings. “I’m disappointed in the result but not disappointed in the way we played. “We played so well and took a big step forward but that stroke changed the game so I was disappointed for the guys. “We are getting better, a lot better. “We are playing with some structure now and have a bit of confidence.”

It was a frustrating night for Snowball but his team heads back to Timaru tomorrow looking to keep the momentum going and get their first proper win, having won by default in round one. “If we can play like we did [on Wednesday] I think we could go close to getting a first win.” While Tinwald are hunting a first win the Wakanui men’s sides, coming off a 1-1 draw, are both back on home turf looking to stay on pace at the top of the table. Wakanui Black are yet to taste defeat with Sunday’s draw with Blue their first non-win of the season, and the defending champions will be overwhelming favourites to beat the winless Excelsior in their match. Blue face the plucky Timaru Boys side, who had a 0-3 loss to Northern Hearts on Tuesday night. The Hampstead women are also at home against Pleasant Point, looking for a vast improvement on their 6-1 loss last time around. They claimed their second win of the season beating Timaru Girls for the second time 1-0, but were disappointed not to have scored a bigger win.

Benji ‘worth every cent’ to the Tigers By Joe Barton Benji Marshall has lost his confidence, his Test captaincy and even the strength in his big toe, but the Wests Tigers playmaker still commands the utmost respect of his team-mates. Marshall, who will play his second game following a turf toe injury against Cronulla at Allianz Stadium tonight, put his hand up this week and accepted much of the Tigers’ woes this season. It was a stunning admission from the club’s highest-profile player, who is deep in negotiations with a view to signing a deal that would

make the 28-year-old a Tiger for life. Marshall is reportedly close to inking an upgrade of his current contract, which ends at the end of next season, which would keep him at the Tigers on a five-year deal worth $4 million. The hefty price tag, and Marshall’s indifferent form, led to some sections of the rugby league world questioning whether the former New Zealand skipper is still deserving of such a contract. “He’s worth every cent to us,” Tigers centre Chris Lawrence told AAP. Marshall has been critical of his own form in 2013, but Lawrence said once he returns to the peak of

his powers there won’t be a person in the game who thinks he isn’t worth the money. “By his own admission he probably hasn’t had the greatest 12 months,” Lawrence said. “But a lot of that is probably not just put on his shoulders but on the rest of the team as well. “As a team we haven’t performed well in the last 12 months. “At times he might have been trying to try too hard and forgetting what his role in the team is. “I’m sure he’ll get back to his best form and when he does a lot of people will change their minds and be saying he’s worth every cent.” Marshall’s likely re-signing fol-

Rooney ‘not for sale’ Manchester United reacted to rumours about Wayne Rooney’s future at the club by insisting yesterday that the England striker is “not for sale”. After Alex Ferguson announced his shock retirement as United manager this week, reports emerged that Rooney had informed the Scot of his desire to leave the club in an informal conversation two weeks ago.

However, United dismissed the idea, with a spokesman saying: “Wayne Rooney is not for sale.” The story threatens to derail Rooney’s reunion with his former manager at Everton, David Moyes, who was yesterday expected to be formally appointed as Ferguson’s successor at Old Trafford. Rooney was handed his Everton debut by Moyes back in 2002 and

But the 25-year-old, who gets teased by teammates for his similarities to his good mate, wants to distance himself from the last five-eighth to take Parramatta to a grand final. “Obviously I admire the way Feleti plays, and he’s a good mate of mine,” Paulo said. “I think (the comparison) can be cool because we know each other and respect each other.

Perry back in Blues starting line-up By Wynne Gray

The Blues have made a clutch of changes, but coach John Kirwan is certain there will not be any mirror image in Super 15 performance tomorrow. They have been in a good space in the last few weeks but with some fatigue and niggles in the group, Kirwan has picked some new players and made a few positional shifts. Tim Perry, Quentin MacDonald, Anthony Boric and Brendon O’Connor have been brought into the pack while George Moala returns to the wing. There are also shuffles with Francis Saili and Rene Ranger each moving in a place in midfield. Memories of multiple changes and defeat against the Bulls in the third round are still a little fresh.

However, Kirwan is confident the whole squad is more advanced and better equipped to deal with the Rebels tomorrow at Eden Park. “I’ll take the rap for that,” he said of the loss to the Bulls. “I think we are a lot further down the track as a team and have had a lot more trainings under the belt. “The changes are a bit more subtle and the boys have been in there and doing it. “For me it is very different. “We need to make sure we have a huge game so guys need to bring fresh legs and fresh enthusiasm,” Kirwan said. “Some of our guys have got high ks and it’s important we give them a bit of a break,” he said. The visitors, who have won just two games this season, have been hit by further problems with troubled Wallaby Kurtley

Beale stood down again after breaking a drinking ban imposed on him. Beale missed a month’s play after hitting several team-mates during a bout of drinking in South Africa. He returned from the bench with a strong display last week against the Chiefs and then went out drinking with team-mates. His immediate future and chances of playing against the touring British and Irish Lions next month will form part of an Australian Rugby Union investigation. Kirwan could not conceal his smile about Beale’s ban while he warned about the strong challenge from the Rebels, who now would have one fewer x-factor players. Former skipper Keven Mealamu and midfield back Jackson Willison had slight injuries and needed time out

Beale back in spotlight By Melissa Woods

Troubled Wallabies star Kurtley Beale’s hopes of winning selection against the British and Irish Lions are in tatters after he was suspended again. Beale has been stood down from the Rebels’ Super Rugby game against Auckland on Saturday and from training after going out drinking, breaking a condition of his return from suspension. Last Friday night the 24-year-old Beale returned to the side from a month-long suspension for an alcohol-fuelled incident in South Africa in which he struck two teammates. He came off the bench early in the second half and almost sparked a come-from-behind upset win over the Chiefs. Beale is understood to have gone to a Melbourne NRL game last Saturday and on to a bar, drinking alcohol. He also missed a mid-week appointment with a psychologist, part of his ongoing treatment program. It’s another big setback for Beale, who had appeared to have won back the trust of Robbie Deans after receiving counselling since the South Africa incident. Rebels coach Damien Hill said on Thursday it was disappointing for both Beale and the team. “You can’t shy away from the fact that he is one of the best footballers in the country,” Hill said. “It’s really disappointing.”  - AAP

while Luke Braid had a huge workload at openside and deserved a spell. Steven Luatua has recovered from the ankle strain he suffered against the Stormers, while Rene Ranger would return to his preferred position at centre. If the Rebels thought the Blues would underestimate them, Kirwan said that they would be well off the mark.  - NZH Tim Perry

Lee-Lo in the limelight So with the negatives out of the way, what can the 27-year-old offer? Simply put, he should be raring to go. He has had a taste of Super Rugby with his cameos from the pine and hasn’t done anything wrong. Lee-Lo showed plenty of potential during last year’s ITM Cup with Counties Manukau and is a powerful runner who can punch his way through gaps. He isn’t a complete novice and did spend 2011 as part of the Chiefs’ wider training group and made his provincial debut for Counties in 2009. Smith has stayed on with the Hurricanes in

By Daniel Richardson

Reynold Lee-Lo has an unenviable job this week. He’s the man who has been given the No 13 jersey for the Hurricanes for their outing against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein tomorrow morning (NZT). After Conrad Smith was knocked out last weekend in the Hurricanes’ 48-14 mauling at the hands of the Bulls in Pretoria, coach Mark Hammett has had to select a new centre for the first time since 2011. Cue Lee-Lo who is in a tough spot for the following reasons; - Conrad Smith is about as irreplaceable on a rugby field as Dan Carter and Richie McCaw. - The Hurricanes have looked ordinary in the past few weeks and Lee-Lo has to help this backline improve, somehow. - The Cheetahs are flying this year, have home advantage and Lee-Lo has only six Super Rugby caps to his name, all of which Reynold Lee-Lo have been substitute appearwas in super form ances. for Counties

South Africa despite his head knock and Hammett said earlier in the week that the 31-year-old would be on hand to offer advice to whoever stepped in to his boots against the Cheetahs in this round. “He’s the captain of the Hurricanes and he’s very respected. “Obviously there’s going to be a new player filling his No 13 jersey and what better way to help that person than to have probably the best centre in the world helping that player out,” Hammett said. Lee-Lo will also have the experienced head of Tim Bateman inside him at secondfive this week, although the for-

mer Crusader has looked out of sorts during the past month and was dropped to the bench for the punishment in Pretoria before coming on as Smith’s replacement. Bateman and Lee-Lo’s introduction are two of the four changes that Hammett has produced this week, while prop Ben May and flanker Faifili Levave have also been summoned to start. Andre Taylor is bracketed in the fullback’s position with James Marshall, while Jack Lam is bracketed at openside flanker with Karl Lowe. The Hurricanes should be motivated to meet the Cheetahs after Hammett tore the paint off the wall with a serious dressing down of his team during the week as they looked back on the Bulls game. “It was a pretty honest and tough review to get through, and it would be pretty fair to say that I was the most animated I’ve been since I’ve been at the Hurricanes,” Hammett said yesterday. “But what we have got is an

extremely good character in this side and I know that no-one went out there to put in a performance as what we put out. “So we are pretty keen to get back on the park and put that right.” One thing you can probably count on this week is plenty of points being scored, considering the game between these sides last year saw the Cheetahs win 47-38 in Wellington, while the Hurricanes took the spoils in 2011 with a 50-47 triumph in Bloemfontein. No 8 Victor Vito will captain the Hurricanes in Smith’s absence. Hurricanes: Andre Taylor/ James Marshall, Alapati Leiua, Reynold Lee-Lo, Tim Bateman, Julian Savea, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara; Victor Vito (captain), Jack Lam/Karl Lowe, Faifili Levave, Jason Eaton, Jeremy Thrush, Ben May, Ash Dixon, Ben Franks. Reserves: Reggie Goodes, Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, James Broadhurst, Brad Shields, Chris Smylie, Tusi Pisi, James Marshall/Karl Lowe. - APNZ The Hurricanes’ faithful will be desperate to see a better performance this week.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, May 10, 2013




No. 7 jersey in demand As the talk of complacency among some All Blacks continues, Sam Cane has spoken of the unique opportunity he and New Zealand’s other openside flankers have been presented by Richie McCaw’s absence next month. There is no doubt that Cane has the inside running for the black No7 jersey due to his four tests for the All Blacks last year, but he said he doesn’t think that way and that is probably a good thing. Despite an increase in game time this season, Cane hasn’t quite replicated his form of last year with the Chiefs. For him at least, complacency is not an issue. Matt Todd at the Crusaders and Luke Braid from the Blues have possibly shaded him which is possibly a reflection of how well their respective forward packs are playing compared with the Chiefs at times. Ardie Savea, John Hardie and Karl Lowe are others who have been mentioned as having claims by All Blacks coach Steve Hansen. Asked if he was feeling the malaise which seems to be affecting some of his All Blacks’ team-mates, Cane replied: “I’m probably not really in that category. I was part of the All Blacks last year but only played a handful of tests. “My focus is to really play well and try to push to get into that All Blacks squad again.” He doesn’t deny that an All Blacks’ starting spot was in his mind. “It’s definitely an opportunity isn’t it? Every No7 in the country

is pushing hard for that spot so it’s probably the first time in about 10 years that it’s guaranteed that Richie isn’t going to be there, so it’s an opportunity for sure. “As if the carrot wasn’t already big enough, three tests against the French would be pretty amazing.” To find out how Cane got to be in this position one has to look back to last season with the Chiefs. Clearly marked out as someone with potential, the now 21-year-old was managed carefully by coach Dave Rennie, no doubt in consultation with Hansen. It was frustrating at times for Cane, though, as he and Tanerau Latimer were swapped throughout. Cane said: “Last year I didn’t start two games in a row all season. There was a lot of chopping and changing. “It’s good to get a few starts under the belt. It only helps your game getting those extra minutes - you get that momentum, confidence and fitness.” Cane is part of a Chiefs team not quite firing this season, yet it remains clearly the best New Zealand conference side and is only one competition point away from the top of the table. Defence has been an issue - it was even before they leaked five tries to the Rebels in their win in Melbourne last weekend - and as a loose forward Cane is an important part of the defensive mix. The Force, the Chiefs’ opposition in tonight’s game at Pukekohe’s EcoLight Stadium, have the potential to cause an upset after their 11-11 draw against the Reds last week- APNZ end.

Tim Cook looks on as Mark Gorman and John Wayman check out his Lancer EVO in preparation for the weekend’s street sprints.

“Maybe the referee ate too much for Christmas.”

Tim ready to burn up his home turf “I’ve been doing the sprints for a few years now but couldn’t tell you how many. “I initially raced a Toyota Starlet for a few years and then two other Mitsubishis before having this one (Lancer Evo) for the last four.” The Street Sprints sees a driver and their machine put pedal to the metal around the street circuit, racing the clock to post the best time. Cook‘s experience of the course means he knows it like the back of his hand but “the bales can still jump out at you”, he said. The cars underwent scrutineering last night, at various locations across the South Island to make

By Jonathan Leask Tim Cook learnt to drive on the streets of Ashburton. And for several years the now Christchurch-based Cook comes back once a year and tears up the streets in his Mitsubishi Lancer. He’s back again this weekend and looking to go even faster. Cook is one of the 54 drivers who will compete in the Ashburton Car Club’s Street Sprints in the Industrial Park this weekend, what Cook still considers home turf. “I’ll always consider myself a local. I grew up here and I’m a member of the car club.

sure they were up to safety regulations to compete in tomorrow’s qualifying runs. All 54 drivers have their chance to set their best time before things get real on Sunday from the round of 32, eliminating drivers until only two are left for the final shootout. In two of the last three years, Cook has made the final only to come in second best. “Obviously I’d love to be the last man standing but ultimately you’re racing against the clock, and as long as I can go faster than last year I’ll be happy.” Aside from defending champion Glen Frew, Cook pointed out a few other drivers to keep an eye on.

Today’s sports trivia question

“Neville (Stowell) will be quick. “Gordon Beeby has probably done a bit to his car and depending on what Ross McKay turns up in he could be quick as well.” Stowell was the early pace setter last year but mechanical issues saw him pull out just as Frew set the fastest time, eventually beating Cook by 0.48 seconds. “Last year my clutch packed up early on in the piece and actually through the finish line at the end it let go completely. “If you can keep your car running you’re halfway there.” Qualifying begins at 8.30am tomorrow, with the final set to run at approximately 4pm on Sunday.

Rojas’ European career motoring along nicely It’s somewhat appropriate Marco Rojas has signed with VfB Stuttgart because he will be close to the home of car manufacturer Mercedes Benz. When the All Whites winger first trialled with the Phoenix in 2009, he was given a Mercedes Benz to drive around Wellington. It was part of his prize as the recipient of the Yellow Fever scholarship - a 1978 Mercedes 250 in bright yellow, with ‘Phoenix ‘til I die’ and an image of retro Ricki (Herbert) emblazoned on the side,

His contract was up with the Victory and he had mapped out a career plan that would take him to Europe. He was linked with a handful of clubs including Werder Bremen, Juventus, Liverpool and Salzburg before agreeing terms with Stuttgart. “Dad and I spoke to the responsible parties at VfB and they gave us the impression that they really wanted me here,” he said in a statement released by Stuttgart. “It’s great for a player when a club shows just how much they want you. It’ll certainly be a big challenge.” It’s one New Zealand’s finest

player, Wynton Rufer, isn’t sure he’s ready for. Rufer played for a number of seasons in the Bundesliga with Werder Bremen, famously scoring both goals when they won the 1992 Cup Winners’ Cup, and played a role in Rojas’ development. Rufer spoke with Stuttgart’s head of sports, Fredi Bobic, and told him Rojas was a good dribbler but mentally not tough enough for the Bundesliga. “Marco is not ready for the Bundesliga,” Rufer is quoted as telling German newspaper Schwarzwaelder Bote. “The ‘hardness’ of the game is too much for

him and it would be better for Marco to stay another year in Melbourne.” Rojas, however, has often proved people wrong. It took the efforts of his Hamilton Wanderers club and then the Yellow Fever to kickstart his career. The fans group established a scholarship in which the recipient received $5000, the Mercedes and a week’s training with the Phoenix but the Yellow Fever had few expectations a player would actually earn a contract. Appropriately, Stuttgart play at the 60,000-seat Mercedes Benz Arena. It was meant to be.- APNZ Marco Rojas: Signed four-year deal

Today’s answers: Mystery person: People really do come from Abergavenny (it wasn’t just an invention in Marty Wilde’s song). Becky James is one, and the track cyclist is the current world sprint and keirin champion. Quote: Roberto Mancini after his side lost to Sunderland Trivia question: Warren Gatland

that members of the fans group picked up off TradeMe. Now Rojas might be able to afford an upgrade. Yesterday it was confirmed the 21-year-old had signed a four-year deal with the German Bundesliga club and, while money was not mentioned, it’s been said a starting salary for players in the Bundesliga is about 300,000 euros. The move, however, is about a lot more than just money. Rojas has often been touted as a player of great potential and that was realised this season when he won the Johnny Warren Medal as the A-League’s best player.
