Ferns outshine the Diamonds New Zealand’s first foray into Fast5 netted mixed results, with the Fast Ferns picking up a draw and win in their opening two matches, but wowed the crowd with their array of tricks. A 31-23 win over Australia in last night’s final game, went some way in making up for a slow start to the evening, in which they drew with Jamaica. The 38-all draw wasn’t the only shock result from the opening

The Arcade Ashburton

night’s action at Vector Arena, with Australia slumping to a 33-15 loss to Malawi in their second match. World champions in the long form of the game, Australia have struggled with Fast5 format with the new rules rewarding high-risk play, which is at odds with the Diamonds’ preference for structure. Australia fell to England 29-27 in their opener, before they were upstaged by a dazzling long-range

shooting display from the Malawi Queens, led by star shooter Mwai Kumwenda, who was sporting a rockstar hairstyle to match. One of the great entertainers in world netball, Malawi delighted the crowd with exuberant celebrations following their impressive win. The African side looked set to go to the top of the leaderboard after the first day, with the Queens in control of their second match against Jamaica, holding a five-

point advantage with 30 seconds to go. But poor option-taking from Malawi at the death gave Jamaica one last roll of the dice and the Sunshine Girls came up trumps, with Jhanielle Fowler landing a “super shot”, which was worth six points in their powerplay quarter. New Zealand shooter Maria Tutaia said the newly revamped rules, which features three different scoring zones, means that upset results will be a feature of the tournament.

Offenders have Ashburton connections Police say two high-risk offenders who absconded from a residential facility this week have connections in Ashburton. Police are calling for information or sightings of the two men, Ivan Andrew Campbell, aged 46, and Jaydon Galland, aged 18, who absconded from the Salisbury Foundation early on Wednesday morning. Detective senior sergeant Tony Hill said overnight on Thursday that two sightings of the men were reported to police. “We are actively following up these sightings, which were in different locations in and around the greater Christchurch area,” he says. “We know the men have

connections in the city as well as in Ashburton and the West Coast. “We are keeping all options open as to their possible location or movements at this stage.” Campbell has multiple convictions for sexual and other offences and is currently on parole after an 11-year prison term. Police say that both are deemed as high-risk offenders, and although there is no indication of any specific threat to any individuals, they should definitely not be approached by the public. Campbell is described as a Caucasian, 177cm (approx 5ft 10in) tall, and of medium-thin build. He has extensive tattoos

on his face, neck, and arms. Galland is described as Caucasian, 177cm (approx 5ft 10in) tall, of medium build.

Any sightings of the men should be reported urgently to the Police by phoning 111, or Christchurch Police on (03) 3637400.

Flight delays ‘frustrated’ USAR workers By Kurt Bayer Chaotic scenes on the tarmac of a Royal New Zealand Air Force base meant critical search and rescue experts and specialist equipment were delayed arriving in Christchurch after the February 22 earthquake, an inquest heard yesterday. Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) staff arrived just one hour before a RNZAFseconded aircraft was due to fly emergency gear from Whenuapai air base in Auckland to the disaster zone. An air force worker, who oversaw the packing of the non-military Boeing 757 plane, told a coroner’s inquest that USAR staff were unable to give exact

details of who was travelling and provide their identification, which was required under international aircraft law. The flight was delayed for four-and-a-half hours, causing “frustration” and anger by the flight’s 60 USAR workers, desperate to join the rescue efforts. It did not leave Auckland until 10.30pm on February 22. One USAR worker even avoided security to run onto the runway and get onto the aircraft to join colleagues. He was found and thrown off the plane, resulting in further delays with repeated head counts. Flight Lieutenant Kylie Upton said it was a serious security breach with serious safety implications.

Ryder rides high By Daniel Richardson Jesse Ryder’s cricketing renaissance continued last night in Wellington as he guided the Firebirds to a six-wicket win over Canterbury in their opening HRV Cup game. Playing under lights at Westpac Stadium to keep the television broadcasters happy, Wellington made light work of Canterbury’s total of

147-6. Ryder blazed 90 not out from 57 deliveries, with a mixture of power hitting and a few deft touches along the way. Wellington also found out that having a guy who can bowl genuinely fast is a valuable commodity on the cricket field, and Shaun Tait’s express pace was too hot to handle at times for most of the Canterbury batsmen. - APNZ

It was not reported because it would have then caused even more delays, she said. USAR deny the incident ever occurred. Flight Lieutenant Upton was speaking on the 10th day of a coroner’s inquest into the deaths of Dr Tamara Cvetanova of Serbia, Cheng Mai of China, Japan’s Rika Hyuga and Jessie Redouble, Emmabelle Anoba, Ezra Medalle, Reah Sumalpong and Mary Amantillo, all from the Philippines. All were students at King’s Education School for English Language on the CTV Building’s third floor and survived the collapse but could not be rescued from the wreckage. Flight Lieutenant Upton said it was critical for the

Variety Theatre Ashburton


For our 2013 production of

RNZAF to know who it was carrying and what was on board. She also said the planes needed to be weighted and balanced correctly before taking to the skies. As the delays dragged on, Auckland USAR leader Murray Binning admitted becoming “very angry” and frustrated, especially when he was told that not all of his 15 tonnes of equipment could be transported. He told the inquest that New Zealand Defence Force officials had earlier told him there would be “no problems” with getting his kit down south. The inquest, before Coroner Gordon Matenga, will resume on December 3.  - APNZ

Ashburton housing Phar Lap shoes return to NZ prices booming By Sue Newman

Median Residential Sale Price $300,000 $290,000 $280,000 $270,000 $260,000 $250,000 $240,000 $230,000 $220,000 $210,000 $200,000 $190,000 $180,000 $170,000 $160,000 $150,000 $140,000

a house in the district (23 in September and 25 this month), has been the shortest since the 2007 property boom. Mr Niles believes the impact of the earthquake-disrupted Christchurch market is now having minimal impact on Ashburton’s property market. “Certainly we’ve had some Christchurch buyers but they’re usually people with a connection in Mid Canterbury. It’s low interest rates that are having the big impact so we’re seeing a lot of first-home buyers and investors.” While there was demand across the board, he said the strongest selling sector was still for properties priced up to $300,000. “We’re now seeing marketing without a price again with deadline sales and auctions and

before winning. They would have been prepared to “go a bit higher if we had to” to make sure the shoes returned to New Zealand, said Mr Lindsay. “We’re so lucky that we can afford to do it. “More importantly that other people in New Zealand can enjoy it.” The shoes are contained in a box with the message “Memo from Dick Davis”, the horse’s owner, taped inside the lid. Another item in the auction, a Phar Lap photograph album from the Davis family which includes 36 black and white photographs of the finishes of all of Phar Lap’s race wins in Australia, was valued at $125,400-163,100. It didn’t sell at auction but there had been quite a lot of interest in it since, said auctioneer Leonard Joel. Kiwi-bred Phar Lap was bought by American businessman Dick Davis and trained by Sydney man Harry Telford. Phar Lap was foaled in New Zealand but trained and raced in Australia. He won the Melbourne Cup in 1930, one of 36 wins in Australia before he died unexpectedly in the US in 1932. The horse’s hide is displayed at the Melbourne Museum and his heart at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra.  - APNZ

Ashburton has clawed its way to the top tier of the property market with record growth in the average price of homes sold in the district. Over the past year, the average sale price has increased by 11.9 per cent, hitting $288,500, giving the district a second place ranking in terms of property value growth. And while the market is not yet seeing the bidding wars that marked its peak in 2007, many properties were now attracting multiple offers, said McGregor’s owner Trevor Hurley. “We’re seeing many situations now where sales are achieving prices that are well above sellers’ expectations. At the extreme they’re achieving $10,000 to $55,000 more with the average up to $20,000,” he said. Buyer demand was seeing many sellers opting for set sales rather than fixed price marketing to allow the market to set the price, he said. During October the number of properties changing hands was not great at 40, and that was indicative of a market marked by a shortage of listings, Mr Hurley said. “Demand is now exceeding supply across all price ranges and we’re also seeing more confidence in the building sector so that will eventually flow on with listings.” The market was the strongest it had been for a long time and it was good to see that return of confidence, he said. A lack of listings and low interest rates were the two key factors in pushing up sales prices, said Hastings McLeod consultant Hamish Niles. Those factors were also responsible for the short median selling time of 25 days, compared to 54 in October last year, he said. Over the past two months, the number of days taken to sell

An Auckland couple are delighted to have reclaimed a piece of Kiwi racing history back from the Aussies for good. Brendan and Jo Lindsay this week returned from Australia with a set of shoes belonging to champion racehorse Phar Lap after outbidding an Australian at an auction in Melbourne. The horse enthusiasts, who breed and race horses, paid $32,000, plus buyer’s premium of 20 per cent for the four aluminium plates - far surpassing the shoes’ pre-sale estimate of $18,800-$25,000. The value of having them back in the country far outweighed the cost, said Mr Lindsay, who is director of plastic storage container company Sistema. “The reason why I brought them was I wanted to make sure the shoes came back to New Zealand so all New Zealanders can enjoy them,” said Mr Lindsay who said he planned to give the shoes to Te Papa in Wellington to display alongside Phar Lap’s skeleton. When the horse isn’t on display, the shoes will be kept at home in Karaka. Going into the auction, the couple decided they wouldn’t be coming home without the shoes, but faced some “fierce competition” from an Australian bidder

that’s allowing the market to set the price.” While the market was strong, Mr Niles said it was too early to say it was on a big upward surge. “But in saying that, I can’t see it going back at all, there’s enough confidence out there to keep this moving.” The average sales price for October was also well up on September, by 6.7 per cent. During October $12 million worth of houses changed hands. Quotable Value New Zealand shows Selwyn as the district with the strongest growth rate for the year to October 31 at 12 per cent, marginally ahead of Ashburton, Auckland is in third place at 9.2 per cent, Timaru followed at 6.9 per cent and Christchurch was next on 5.9 per cent.

Bedroll found in search for tramper Chunks of a bedroll that may have belonged to the Christchurch tramper missing for more than two weeks have been found in dense bush on the West Coast. Rex Leslie Taylor, 50, has not been seen since October 16. West Coast search and rescue crews have been scouring the bush, river and beach in the Totara Valley area, near Mikonui River, since Tuesday, when his family reported him missing. The Mikonui catchment adjoins the Totara. Search and rescue co-ordinator Sergeant Sean Judd said that 21 fresh searchers were sent into the hills yesterday.

The alpine cliff rescue team, a fresh dog team from Christchurch along with two search and rescue teams from Westport and South Westland and one from Hokitika were deployed. Mr Judd said ground searchers found pieces of a bedroll that may have been chipped off in the thick bush, as well as pieces of rubber that experienced hunters used to light fires. However, they could not say for sure whether the items belonged to Mr Taylor. “We have a list of scenarios. He may have slipped down a steep cliff, it could be medical or he may have been swept away in a river.”  - APNZ

Two dead after stabbing

The gift of giving David Favel (right) from Ashburton’s Regent 3 had a major collection of cans on his hands on Wednesday night after punters paid their way using a tin of food. The Watties’ Cans Film Festival saw people around the country swap a can of food for a movie ticket, in an annual initiative aimed at helping those in need. In Ashburton a can of food got moviegoers into Ice Age 4 – Continental Drift. Wattie’s will match the number of cans donated around the country with one of its own cans, and all cans will go to The Salvation Army’s Christmas appeal. Photo Kirsty Graham 071112-KG-035

A man and a woman are dead after a violent incident in south Auckland yesterday. Police were called to a house in Manurewa about 11.30am where they found a woman with stab wounds. She was taken to Middlemore Hospital in a critical condition but died during surgery this afternoon. Police believed the stabbing was linked to the death of a man who was found near a rail bridge a short distance away from the house in Great South Road. “He is believed to have been involved in the incident. The male was dead on police arrival and both police and ambulance staff attempted to revive the male without success,” Detective Inspector Jim Gallagher said.  - APNZ

ECan eyes farmers without water meters By Linda Clarke Hundreds of farmers in Mid Canterbury can expect visit from Environment Canterbury officers in the next few weeks asking why they have no water meters. Water-users and irrigators with takes of 20 litres per second were required to have meters by today, but some have done nothing about it. They risk an abatement notice forcing them to stop pumping. At October 31, just over half (55 per cent) of the 5881 water-take points needing water measuring and recording devices were on record has having meters. Another 33 per cent, (representing 1962 points) had signed up for meters. Extension services manager Judith Earl-Goulet said ECan would treat the signed-up group as compliant while they waited for the irrigation service industry to fit their meters. “That only leaves 12 per cent, to the best of our knowledge, who have done nothing.” The 12 per cent relates to 685 points of take and these consent-holders have been contacted three times by letter and targeted by advertising campaigns. ECan officers will next week notify the offenders throughout Canterbury they are in breach of the water meter regula-

tions and warn they can expect a compliance visit. The visit is cost-recoverable, so will cost consent-holders at least $132. It was not too late to register with a meter supplier, and avoid a visit, Ms Earl-Goulet said. Those on the waiting list for groundwater meters can expect action by the end of June. Meters for more complicated surface water takes might take longer. The regional authority has been required by National Regulations to ensure water-takes are metered but the information ECan collects from the meters will also help it analyse water use in the region. Ms Earl-Goulet said ECan preferred to educate rather than prosecute, but could issue abatement notices if necessary. “We will be prioritising compliance approach with this third group after November 10, starting with a letter informing of an upcoming compliance visit to establish water measurement status, discuss options, and encourage them to register with industry to get a system installed. If people fail to act within two weeks of our visit then it is likely they will receive an abatement notice (a further cost of around $750) which means they will be unlikely to use the water from their take.”

Budget with attitude When your budget is tight, when what you’ve got is all there is and there’s no backup if you run out of cash, what do you do? Ask any budget advisor and they’ll tell you that planning what you spend and spending what you plan is the way to keep the short-of-cash wolf from the door. Retirement spending surveys all tell the same story – the pension is just enough to survive on; it’s not enough for a lifestyle. The pension - $348 in the hand if you have no other income – is enough to pay the basic bills. Just $200 a week extra would make all the difference. Finding that $200 a week, however, means either a job that yields about $300 before tax or a tidy sum invested – at least $275,000. If that’s earning 4.5 per cent interest and you pay tax at the rate of 17.5 per cent, you’ll be left with just over $10,000 in extra cash each year. Sounds simple, but if you’ve been a freewheeling, free spending baby boomer all your life, looking at stashing that amount away before you sign off from work is a big call. So what do you do? You start cutting costs – today, before you retire so that when the crunch comes you’ll know what to do. Ask budget advisor Carol Brown. She’s one of a team of people who are often the last port of call for people who find they’re drowning under a mountain of debt. And that’s the problem, Carol said, people don’t ask for help until their finances are in crisis. Ask sooner, plan sooner and while the problem mightn’t go away, it will become a lot more manageable. Her team at Ashburton Budget

The Guardian’s series looking at living on a tight budget or a benefit continues today. Reporter Sue Newman talks to budget advice experts.


On the



Advisory Services works with people who need help to sort their finances out. The outcome usually depends on how soon people seek help. Put your hand up when the first cracks start to show and your chances of getting back on the financial straight and narrow are much, much greater, Carol said. “People need to seriously look at what they’re spending, be absolutely honest about where their money is going. It’s the little bits and pieces you spend that make the difference.” For anyone, not just people with a limited income, making a budget is the only way to track your spending. Aside from rent or mortgage payments all spending could be shaped to fit the cash available, but making a budget work was as much about attitude as it was about the size of the budget, Carol said. “Instead of looking at what you can’t do, look at the things you can do and there are plenty of things you can do to help your budget, such as growing your own vegetables, buying specials, perhaps sharing bulk purchases and

cutting down on needless spending.” She recommends putting money aside every week for set expenses such as power, vehicle registration and phone so you’re not tempted to see that money in your bank account and spend it on something else. And she recommends using a couple of jars to save for extras like the odd cup of coffee out. To ensure there’s enough money left for essentials, Carol suggests people have set amounts diverted at the bank into specific accounts. Forget about credit cards, they’re the killer for anyone on a limited budget, she said. “That’s one of the things that has stood out in this series, none of the people mention credit card debt and that’s great.” If you can afford it before you retire, take a long, hard look at household appliances and house maintenance needs. Replace what needs replacing, do outstanding work and set yourself up in a good position for retirement, Carol said. “If you’re looking at living on a limited budget, come and see us in advance.”

• No Kyoto deal for NZ New Zealand will not sign up for fresh commitments under the Kyoto Protocol, Climate Change Minister Tim Groser announced yesterday. The climate change treaty’s first commitment period expires at the end of the year and New Zealand expects to slightly exceed its target. But it is joining Japan, Canada and Russia - and parting company with Europe and Australia - in pulling out of the Kyoto system going forward. Groser said Kyoto would now cover only about 15 per cent of global emissions. It was better to contribute to efforts under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to reach a deal that would better tackle the problem.

Sparrows marks milestone By Sue Newman With a line-up of 13 children there was never any doubt that William John Sparrow would have an heir to carry on the business his father William Sparrow had founded in 1887. What he could never have counted on, however, was that when the business’ 125th anniversary rolled around, one of those heirs, his 10th child Cip, would, at 90, still be working in that business. Scotsman William Sparrow arrived in New Zealand in 1877 and started work for the company that became Hallensteins, the New Zealand Clothing Company. After 10 years he decided to set up in business on his own account and in 1887, the foundations were laid for the family business that this year celebrates its 125th birthday. William John followed his father into the business. He proved not only to be a successful businessman, but also a man who was highly successful at raising a family, with 13 children born between 1914 and 1928. Cip was the 10th of those, born in 1922. Of his five sons, four opted to follow their dad into the family business; Cip stayed the distance and more. He started at the shop in 1938 as a 16-year-old, earning seven shillings and sixpence a week. In 1939 enlisted as a soldier and then an airforceman during World War Two and post war, his father decided the time had come for him to retire and for the next generation to take over the business. When the third generation of Sparrow boys joined the firm, formality was the order of the day. “”Dad always insisted we wear a suit, tie and hat to work and I’ve worn a tie every day ever since because I became so used to wearing one,” Cip said. Customers were always ‘sir’ or ‘madam’ and the young staff members always ran to get a chair for ladies to sit on while they were being shown items of clothing. In those days, shopping was all about service, he said. “There was no self service. No one helped themselves, we brought the stuff out and showed them; we considered we gave great service.” Young staff members also doubled as delivery boys, taking parcels of clothing to customers’ homes for them to try on. Of course fashions have changed dramatically over the years, but

the biggest change has come in fabric, Cip said. “Back then men wore woollen underwear, thick, heavy underwear. Materials have been a big improvement and in hosiery it’s been nylon that’s made the difference. Before, women were always darning woollen socks. And trouser bottoms, well they’ve gone out come back in, gone out and come in again.” He puts the longevity of the business down to its willingness to change as customer needs changed and its willingness to expand into new fields. Originally the business was just menswear. Women’s shoes were stocked for a time while his sisters were involved, but women’s clothing did not become part of Sparrow’s stock in trade until quite recently. “I guess we’ve stuck at this and we’ve put a lot of time into it.” Cip was joined by his son Euan and several years later, the company spread its wings into manufacturing. Phaups hosiery had been their supplier but when its owner wanted to stop work, Cip and Euan decided to buy his machines. “Then when Mosgiel went into receivership, the next thing we had 60 machines on our hands and half of them wouldn’t go.” With hard work, endurance and a bit of luck they set up a fledgling sock manufacturing business, laying the foundation for today’s international trader the New Zealand Sock Company. The success of that business still amazes Cip. “We didn’t expect to get so big in such a short space of time. We started out to make our own socks and now we’re one of the biggest sock manufacturers in the Southern Hemisphere. I look back and think we were pretty game doing this.” Today, there are no Sparrows behind the counter in the East Street store, although Euan’s office is there. The fifth generation is heavily involved in the sock industry, but Cip’s optimistic they might pick up the retail shop’s reins in the future. Today he works about two hours a day at the sock factory, but he’s happy to turn up to work whenever he’s needed and do whatever needs doing. “It’s good I can please myself now. I didn’t want to go out and do hard manual work at my age. I suppose there’ll be a time when I am looking to retire.”

Warning signs in teacher abuse case Northland teacher James Parker was able to continue his offending against young boys for so long partly because of his close relationship with the principal and his authority as deputy principal and kapa haka leader, a report has found. Parker, the former deputy principal of Pamapuria School, 10km south of Kaitaia, is awaiting sentence on 49 sexual abuse charges. He was due to be sentenced on November 15 but that is likely to be delayed due to fresh complaints since his crimes became public. An independent report, released yesterday, aimed to find out why the school failed to keep its children safe and what could be done to prevent other cases in future. It is separate from the ongoing police investigation. It found warning flags had been raised several times since Parker started teach-

ing at Oturu School in 1998, including about his habit of showering with boys staying at his home or sharing a bed with them “marae-style” . There was no evidence offences had occurred at school. Sometimes unusual behaviour was accepted because Parker had an adult girlfriend so people assumed he was safe with young boys. Others thought he wasn’t a risk because children stayed overnight with their parents’ permission. Parker’s closeness to some families in the area and his mana as kapa haka leader made it hard for people to suspect or accuse him. Others felt their concerns would not be acted on because he was close to principal Stephen Hovell. Prior to 2012 the closest Parker came to prosecution was in 2009 when a boy told his sister about the abuse. She told her mother, who in turn went to police. Two other boys were named as victims.  - APNZ

Seven “patients’”were extracted from two crashed vehicles while a group of young people watched on, in Ashburton on Thursday night. But the crash was all about learning. It was a staged crash, organised by the Ashburton St John youth cadets as part of their casualty simulation badge. For the mock crash they organised for the Ashburton Volunteer Fire Brigade and St John Ambulance to be there to show what would happen in such a situation. Seven of the more than 40 young cadets in attendance acted as patients for the exercise.

Late flush for rhodo reserve “It’s been a slow spring in the country,” he said. The reserve is located on Ashburton District Council reserve land at McLennan’s Bush. The committee formed in 1970 and began planting rhododendrons to enhance the spot, set amongst native forest. Mr Goodwin said the reserve remained as popular as ever as a picnic location for Mid Canterbury residents and passing tourists. It was also a popular target for vandals and thieves from time to time. Thieves targeted newly-planted rhododendrons and, just two months ago, the reserve had grass ripped up

By Susan Sandys It is a slow spring at the Awa Awa Rata Reserve this year, says reserve vice president Stan Goodwin. Some of the 700 rhododendrons at the reserve, at the base of Mt Hutt, are in full flower, while others are just coming into flower. Mr Goodwin said cold days and lack of consistent sunshine had meant the colourful shrubs were generally flowering later than usual this year.

The committee will have its annual general meeting on November 22, at 11am, at the reserve. Committee members hold occasional working bees and undertake work such as planting, weeding and spraying.

Martin Luther King said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter”. As a Christian, the Marriage Amendment Bill is not an “anti-gay” or homophobic issue that some social media have liked to sling around. This is about the very nature and design of marriage. Rasik Ranchord, Spokesperson on Public Issues for NLCI, wrote (September 2012): “In a media release on August 29th 2012, seventy church leaders, including numerous national heads of major church denominations both Catholic and Protestant, spoke up in a joint personal statement on the day of the first reading of the Marriage Amendment Bill, which would allow same-sex couples to marry. “We have made this joint statement”, said Rev Dr Richard Waugh, “because members of Parliament need to be in no doubt what mainstream Christian views are on this matter.” Joint church leaders’ statement: “This issue is not about equality but about the nature of marriage. All human beings are equal in the sight of both God and society, but not all relationships are the same. Marriage has uniquely been about the union of male and female. The State should not presume to re-engineer a basic human institution. The complementary role of male and female is basic to the very character of marriage, along with having and raising children. Same-sex relationships are intrinsically different, so can never be regarded as true marriage. “Parliament needs to take seriously that, for a very significant proportion of the New Zealand public, marriage is more than just a legal agreement or social contract, but has a sacred character to it, and that many people – Christian and otherwise – feel very strongly that the nature of marriage should not be interfered with. “In 2004, the public was assured by the Prime Minister and other MPs that marriage would be respected as the union of a man and a woman, and that Civil Unions were a good and acceptable alternative, offering equivalent legal protections to marriage itself. It is now time for Members of Parliament to recall and honour those assurances.” The submission deadline was yesterday and for those of you who have written in, I commend you. It’s important to have your say and express to your government whether you are happy about the choices they are making for you and for the future of New Zealand. And above all else, continue to pray for marriage and for marriages because we can improve the quality of marriages but we don’t need to redefine it.

Feedback piles up on LWP

Environment Canterbury has received 354 submissions on the proposed Canterbury Land and Water Regional Plan. The plan provides a framework to deliver the community’s aspirations for water management in Canterbury, as set out in the Canterbury Water Management Strategy. This strategy addresses, for the first time, water issues from various sources in both urban and rural areas. The land and water plan is a new planning framework for Canterbury, replacing most of the Natural Resources Regional Plan (NRRP). It addresses six key issues: Competing demands for water in Canterbury, the need for integrated and consistent management of water and land uses, issues arising from interconnected water and land resources, soil conservation, gravel resources and biodiversity, natural hazards and managing new and existing activities. Submissions closed on Monday and there is now an opportunity for further submissions to be made on the 354 submissions already lodged. These must be made by November 14. Submissions will be heard by appointed independent commissioners, with the less controversial heard in stage one. Preliminary legal issues will be heard from December 11–14 and sections other than those including farming provisions and sub-regional sections of the plan from February 4–March 22. Farming provision hearings have been set down for April 2–May 3 and sub-regional sections from May 13-31. There will also be time for the regional council reply in June. A report from the commissioners is likely in September.

Bid for bodies

An international team of mine safety experts says the bodies of the 29 Pike River miners can be recovered. A proposal to enter the collapsed mine and recover the victims has been presented to new West Coast mine owners Solid Energy, Mines Rescue and the Government. The plans outline exactly how to go underground and safely reach the men, which the grieving families have been fighting for since the November 2010 tragedy. “My experts are very confident,” said Bernie Monk, spokesman for most of the 29 families, whose son Michael died in the tragedy. “The plans include how to get down the drift, how to get the miners out of the mine, and all of the costings.”  - APNZ

Couple rescued Hubbard case delayed by cargo ship An Auckland woman and her British-born partner endured three days of hell as they were tossed about inside their stricken yacht in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Speaking from the cargo ship which rescued the pair early yesterday, Tania Davies said she and Steve Jones were like a couple of “little balls being tossed around a room”. “The banging, the crashing, the whipping, the crunching, the sloshing. Just the sounds vibrate through every part of your body,” she said. All they were left with, when it was all over, were head injuries and two small bags of belongings. Their 11.6-metre yacht Windigo their home for a year - and everything in it was left to sink into the sea. Heading from Tonga to Auckland on a homecoming voyage, the couple had perfect conditions for the first three days and were “sailing like a dream”, said Ms Davies, 43. Then, halfway between Tonga and Fiji, they struck bad weather.  - APNZ

More than money matters By Sue Newman Ashburton man Jack Ross might have spent his working life in the world of finance, but that didn’t stop him taking a keen interest in the funny, outrageous and sometimes heartbreaking twists and turns of life. Mr Ross started his second career as an Ashburton Guardian columnist, initially for a 12-week period, and initially that column was to be about money. Appropriately it was called Money Matters and the information and advice he offered was based on his experience as a practising sharebroker. The people of Ashburton, however, realised that Mr Ross had greater

value than as a financial columnist alone, as his wit and quirky observations on life began to creep into his financial columns. He broadened his subject matter, his contract was extended and the money column quickly morphed into Money and Other Matters. During the nine years he wrote for the Guardian, he clipped and filed each column, all 581 of them and he’s now grateful he did. Ever a man to look for challenges and projects, the now retired Mr Ross decided he might have the makings of a small book in his bottom drawer. He dragged out the pile of clippings and carefully read each one again. “It’s certainly been interesting for me to re-read some of the articles (and

rubbish) that’s resulted from my putting pen to paper,” he said. It was time consuming, but at the end of countless of hours of selection and re-selection, he ended up with about 45 columns he thought could form a small book that would provide light bed time reading. “And because every one of those columns was handwritten, I’ve had to type them all out again.” With the finished book in his hands, Mr Ross said he was still a little anxious about how it would be received, but hoped it would strike a chord with people who enjoyed a brief read of something that could provide a little light, pre-sleep entertainment. “It’s good for all of us to have a think in a relaxed way.”

Dead pilot was mentor to students


Fuller tools



An Arrowtown pilot who died in a helicopter crash on the Criffel Range, near Wanaka, on Thursday night was a respected and experienced aviator and an instructor to generations of pilots. The pilot was Julian Dean Kramer, 52, of Arrowtown, also known as Julianne, or “JK”. He was the Wakatipu Aero Club’s chief flying instructor and trained at the Frankton club and in Dunedin. Club president and pilot Adrian Snow said yesterday Mr Kramer was flying solo in a privately owned Robinson R22 helicopter on a private flight outside of the club’s operations. Mr Kramer had taken the opportunity to ferry the aircraft back to Queenstown from Wanaka but tragedy struck at 8.40pm, about halfway through the flight, despite perfect flying conditions. It was the fifth fatal incident involving a twoseater Robinson R22 helicopter in the lower South Island in four years. Robinson R22s have been involved in more than 30 crashes - in which nine people have been killed - in New Zealand during the past eight years. “Obviously it is a big loss for the club and everyone is deeply saddened by what has happened and our thoughts are with the family,” Mr Snow said of the crash that killed Mr Kramer. Mr Kramer had more than 30 years of flying experience and logged 9000 hours as a pilot. He developed a nationally recognised skill-set in mountain flying training based on the Wakatipu and Fiordland, Mr Snow said. “He’s trained many of the commercial fixedwing pilots who operate in and out of Milford today. He used to have students travel the length of the country to train with him and a few had come from overseas and he even had regular visits from some of the flying schools in Auckland spend time under his guidance.” Over the Top - The Helicopter Company chief executive and chief pilot Louisa Patterson, of Queenstown, said yesterday Mr Kramer was a friend and aviation colleague for decades. He was “a great mentor and well respected aviator, enthusiastic and passionate about aviation”. His “cheerful voice and experience will be missed in the skies over Queenstown and Milford Sound, because that experience is important to pass on to young people coming into the industry”.  - APNZ

Year 11 students shine at the top By Myles Hume Ashburton College pupils were given a brief insight into who may be leading their school come 2014. Although it is still early days, the signs are looking good for Adam Tupper, 16, and Sala Touli, 15, who were the two top award winners at the Year 11 prizegiving yesterday afternoon. Adam, who was presented the top scholar award, was hoping this award would only be a stepping stone towards becoming the dux of Ashburton College one day, and he was adamant his driven demeanor would carry through until then. “This really means a lot to me and it’s really good to know that I’m going well.” He could have the makings for head boy, living a balanced life that’s spread across school – mainly digital technology and science – and competitive swimming. “I spend a lot of my time swimming and I just fit school in between,” Adam said. “They are both pretty equal to me but I would have to say school just comes first.” Sala claimed the citizenship award, a decision that was rigorously exercised by school staff who narrowed a group of 16 down to four. In an interview, Sala was quizzed about what it meant to

tribution to the college, Sala only realised when she spoke to the Guardian yesterday just how much work she put in after hours of volleyball, culture dance, coaching, and other sports.

“I didn’t really notice I was so busy, it was just when I was asked that I thought ‘I really did give up a lot of my time’,” Sala said. Both are staying on for Year 12 at Ashburton College 2013.

Kiwi Dan loves his tattoo

It took 16 painful hours for New Zealand to be stretched across Daniel McKechnie’s back. But the 26-year -old Wanganui plumber has not regretted his tattoo for a moment, and now it’s earned him a place in the final of a search for the “Kiwiest of all Kiwis”. The competition being run by Tasti Products, a New Zealand company which is celebrating its 80th year in business, called for people to submit photographs that showed why they were New Zealand’s “Kiwiest Kiwi”. Those images were displayed on the company’s Facebook page, where the picture of Mr McKechnie’s tattoo proved to be the most popular entry, generating 587 votes and becoming one of 10 competition finalists. The winner, judged by Rachel Hunter and Tasti’s Simon Hall, is due to be announced on Monday. Mr McKechnie’s wife gave him the voucher he used to get the tattoo as a Christmas present last year. He will take her on the winner’s trip to meet a real kiwi bird if he wins.  - APNZ

It seems like email is used to do all the wrong things, when there are lots of ways to do the right things.

Professor quits email I

f you send an email to Paul Jones, you won’t hear back from the professor. You will, however, receive an automated reply that could only have come from him. “Good Bye Email, I’m divesting,” reads the subject line. The message says that Professor Jones gave up email on June 1, 2011, and goes on to suggest more than a dozen ways to contact him: through Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Gtalk, AIM, Skype, LinkedIn, even YouTube. Going email-free is part of a grand experiment that Jones, who oversees the University of North Carolina’s online archive, decided to undertake after analysing his communication methods. He concluded that email took the most time and yielded the least useful communication, especially for those using mobile phones as much as com-

puters. So he quit. None of his university peers are convinced enough to follow his lead, and one even derided Jones’ email divestiture as “false performance art”. But for those struggling with the time drain of email, the idea is tantalising. Jones recalls a conversation he had with outgoing chancellor Holden Thorp. “Holden told me, ‘I wish I could do no email’, and that was a year ago,” Jones says. “Bet he really wishes that now.” Jones insists he’s not missing a thing being email-free. And not only is he gone, he’s not coming back. “My feeling is that everybody should use things collaboratively. It seems like email is used to do all the wrong things, when there are lots of ways to do the right things. “We all just got in the habit of it, and it’s frankly

just bad technology – and the social part is not good, either. Humans just don’t use it right,” Jones says. “I want communication to be fast, terse, mobile, synchronous and highly interactive, none of which email is. There are 20 or 30 better and more amusing ways to communicate.” Thirty years ago, Jones not only helped write the code for UNC’s first campus-wide email system, he also led efforts to get everyone to use it. ut now, between spam and the way people misuse it, he is convinced that email is beyond saving. Even when it’s from someone he wants to hear from, Jones derides email as the least-effective way to communicate, breaking down into “formal exchanges of diplomatic papers”, or talking points. Besides, Jones believes that the seeds of something better are already out there


for most people. “Most of the people I converted to email back then are now 50 and older and they say they don’t want to learn anything new,” Jones says. “And they’re already using Skype with their grandkids, or Facebook or Tumblr to share photos. You ask if they text: ‘Yeah, to my children, but nobody else.’ Even the people who are most resistant, they’ve compartmentalised it. People are already doing this in their private lives, they hardly send email. So let’s do it elsewhere, too.” Whatever its flaws, however, email won’t be going away in the near future. According to the Pew Research Center, email is tied with search engines at the top of the list of online activities; both are used by 92 per cent of adults on the internet. “It’s a part of everyone’s lives and I don’t see that changing any time soon,”

says Ben Niolet, marketing director at the email marketing firm Contactology. “And Twitter, Facebook, even YouTube, what they all have in common is that email is the spine that powers them.” But long-term trends may be running against it. A 2009 Pew survey found that teenagers’ email use had declined to 73 per cent, down from 89 per cent in 2004. ones acknowledges that quitting email cold turkey isn’t feasible for everyone, and he’s had to make some adjustments. He uses (which scans his old email address for confirmation numbers and such) for travel logistics. And if you want to schedule an appointment with him, you don’t send an email, you put it on his Google calendar.   – AAP

Pump up the colour with petunias F

or a quick shot of colour in your garden you can’t go past petunias. Pink, red, blue and more – you can even get duo colour petunias. Not sure how to choose? Try a mixed bundle and wait for the surprise when they start to flower. All you need to plant petunias is a sunny, free-draining spot in your garden. Running tight on space? Try growing these pretty plants in pots. You can grab your Awapuni Nurseries petunia seedlings from your local supermarket, Bunnings or the Warehouse. Alternatively, head to our online store at and have them delivered direct to your door. At the time of writing this article we had over 20 different types of petunia available for purchase online! And remember, if you order six or more items to a non-rural address delivery is free. Or pay just $4 to deliver to a rural property. Planting is a simple. Simply dig a little hole and plant. It’s a good idea to space each seedling around 20cm apart to allow them room to grow. You do have to watch out for snails. And, if you’ve planted them in a sheltered spot, like under the eve of a house, keep an eye out for aphids too. You can be pretty sure you’ve got aphids if they stop flowering earlier than you would expect. Petunias have a bit of a reputation for catching diseases. One way to prevent the spread of any diseases is avoid overhead watering. But if you really want to give your petunias a fighting chance – buy Awapuni Nurseries petunia seedlings. We use high quality seeds with increased disease resistance to produce our seedlings. This means your Awapuni petunias are way more likely to grow and flourish successfully. In about six to eight weeks your garden should have its injection of colour. Tod Palenski Awapuni Nurseries

Can I plant tomatoes and courgettes together? Are there veges plants that don’t do well together?


Generally, most vegetables do grow well together. However, in this instance, with tomatoes and courgettes, it would be best to avoid planting them together. The reason is because courgettes are very prone to powdery mildew and this would heighten the possibility of the infection spreading to your tomato plants. Powdery mildew is a common fungal disease that is more prevalent in humid conditions, and typically strikes during the late summer months. The disease affects courgettes and other vegetables such as beans, pumpkin and cucumbers etc, and any plants in the affected area. If it does show up in your garden, it’s important to remove any signs of the disease immediately and destroy it hygienically eg: burn or put in rubbish bin (be sure to keep it out of your compost bin). When planning the planting

positions of vegetables in your garden, allow enough room between plants for good air circulation. And if a plant does suffer from a particular problem such as powdery mildew, then it is better to position it further away from other susceptible plants. With any garden, and in particular vegetable, try to have good garden practices. This includes garden hygiene, such as cleaning up any dead leaves or foliage, and regular weeding. Water and good quality mulch also play a very important part and should be applied regularly to help keep moisture and nutrients in, especially during the hot summer months when plants are more stressed. Tip: To help keep insect pests at bay plant calendulas and marigolds. These plants have a strong pungent odour which helps deter pests.

November is a good time to ... – Mulch. As the weather warms up everything in your garden will take off – including weeds. Apply mulch and you’ll prevent the light getting to your weeds and germinating. – If you haven’t already, apply a good general fertiliser to the soil, like nitrophoska blue. – Got lots of birds, flies and wasps hanging around the garden? Chances are they’re there for a feast of aphids. Hose the aphids off your plants with a strong stream of water and spray the plant with Neem. Alternatively, try planting marigolds next to your roses – their natural scent repels aphids. Or sprinkle breadcrumbs around the

roses for the birds to eat. While they’re snacking they’ll eat the aphids too.

– Sow your last lot of grass seed if you’re thickening up your lawn. If it’s been a wet spring where you live and your soil has been wet and boggy but is finally starting to dry up, now’s a good time to start planting your summer veges.

– Most importantly, plant all your favourite veges because now’s the time to plant just about anything! How about trying something a bit different like fennel? Fennel is flavoursome and versatile. Tod Palenski Awapuni Nurseries

Comment Our view

Obama welcomed back By Coen Lammers



he majority of people in Mid Canterbury appear to have welcomed President Barack Obama winning a second term in the White House. Aside from the fact that New Zealanders seem to identify more easily with President Obama’s social policies than the more conservative approach of his Republican opponent, a victory for Mitt Romney would have been a major setback for local exporters. New Zealand trade negotiators have been working for several years to stitch together a coveted Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the two countries and a new administration in Washington could have set the process back months or even years. Traditionally, the free trade mantra has appealed to the Republican part of Capitol Hill, but over the past term the Obama administration has proven to be extremely pro-active by signing bilateral agreements with several nations in the Pacific Rim. New Zealand trade negotiators would have been relieved that they can now keep building on the work done so far and the personal relationship with their US counterparts to secure a free trade deal. In contrast, any US elections usually trigger a major cabinet reshuffle and New Zealand ministers will have to deal with a new Secretary of State, a new Trade Minister and a new Minister of Defence and those personal relationships make take some time to warm up again. Under the Obama administration, New Zealand and other Pacific nations have grown in prominence as the Americans have identified this area a crucial region in world politics. The Chinese expansion in the South Pacific through its growing economic muscle and their stronger relationships with the island nations have alarmed the Americans, whose traditional footprint around the Pacific is being challenged by Beijing. That renewed interest is the major leverage for the New Zealand government and has already produced stronger military relationships despite our on-going nuclear-free stand. The free trade agreement though is much more important and should be achievable as the impact on the American economy would be minor, whereas many New Zealand exporters would reap huge rewards. Mid Canterbury dairy farmers should be especially pleased that Mr Obama has stayed in office as they are likely to be the major beneficiaries of a free trade deal.

Goodbye Greg King By Rebecca Quilliam Rarely do rival gang members and criminals come together with police, government ministers and the leading lights of the legal fraternity, but for Greg King they did. Close to 800 people - family, friends, colleagues, clients and admirers - gathered at the Wellington Cathedral of St Paul yesterday to remember the top lawyer, who is now counted among the “giants of criminal law”. Nearly a week after Mr King’s body was found near his home in suburban Newlands, the shock and disbelief over the death of a man who lived for his wife and family and who was brilliant in his craft was still palpable. His wife, fellow lawyer Catherine Milnes-King and the couple’s children Pippa, 5, and Millie 4 were joined by mourners including Health Minister Tony Ryall and fellow National MP Nick Smith, lawyer Barry Hart, former property tycoon Terry Serepisos and members of the Mongrel Mob and Black Power gangs. His plain pine coffin, which arrived at the church in a Rolls Royce, was draped with his court robe, wig and his familiar blue bag. Wellington District Court, where Mr King spent much of his legal career, closed its doors yesterday so staff could also pay their respects.


Mr King, who was 43 when he died, was described as someone who was dedicated to the law, passionate about representing the under-dog, loyal to his family and friends and generous to a fault. Catherine Milnes-King said the depth of her grief at losing her soulmate was like a “black hole”. “Upon receiving the news it plunged across the event horizon,” she said. “You are my stars, you are my moons, you are my universe, you are my everything.” Mr King’s father, Jeffrey King, said he could not remember his son making a poor choice until last Friday. “Thanks for being my son Greg, you’d have had a wonderful party if you could see everyone here”. His mother Jennifer called him a wonderful son “and I am privileged to be his mother. Rest in peace Gregory”. Judith Ablett-Kerr QC, Mr King’s mentor, said of her close friend: “His talents seemed to know no bounds and his energy was limitless as he searched for the stars”. “The light that burned so brightly was extinguished so sadly and unexpectedly,” she said. Mr King, who recently successfully defended Feilding farmer Ewen Macdonald during his trial accused of murdering his brother-in-law Scott Guy, seemed gifted in identifying with all people associated with all aspects of

by David Fletcher

the legal system, the service was told. Justice William Young said Mr King was known for the empathy he felt for victims of crime, and crown prosecutor Simon Moore SC said Mr King was “scrupulously honest”. “If Greg said it was so, it was, because his word was his bond.” It was a tribute to Mr King that people representing all aspects of the legal profession as well as victims of crime felt a keen loss at his death, he said. Robert Lithgow QC said Mr King was admired among the legal fraternity because he was always made an effort to help people who found themselves in a predicament. “He was one of those lawyers who could find something good even in the most unsatisfactory of people.” Archdeacon Monty Black said Mr King had been exhausted, unwell and disillusioned. Brooke Fraser, the daughter of Mr King’s close friend former All Black Bernie Fraser, sang at the service and screens displayed images of Mr King from throughout his life. Mr King was born in Wanganui in 1969 and was raised in Turangi before studying law at Otago University. “It was clear to all he was destined for great things,” said one of his oldest friends, Paul Benjes. Mr King’s death last Saturday has been referred to the coroner.  - APNZ

Syrian crisis worsens The United Nations is warning that the number of people inside Syria needing humanitarian aid could rise sharply from 2.5 million now to 4 million by early next year if the civil war grinds on at its current deadly pace. John Ging, operations director for the UN humanitarian office, said the UN is also projecting that a failure to end the fighting will lead to an increase in the number of Syrians fleeing to neighboring countries, from almost 400,000 at present to around 700,000 in early 2013. Ging spoke in an interview ahead of Friday’s fifth Syria Humanitarian Forum in Geneva where between 350 and 400 representatives of governments, international organizations and aid groups will hear reports on the sharply deteriorating humanitarian situation in Syria. “People need to be aware of just how desperate the situation is inside Syria for the people there, how unbearable it is, and how they are suffering and falling into ever deeper despair and humanitarian need,” Ging said. “It’s just getting a lot worse very rapidly for the ordinary people.” At the moment, he said, the UN and other aid organisations are only able to reach 1.5 million of the 2.5 million people in need of assistance inside Syria — and one of the reasons is funding. Ging said the humanitarian program for Syrians still inside the country, and the program for Syrian refugees in camps in Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and other neighboring countries, are both “seriously underfunded,” with donors providing less than 50 per cent of the amount needed. As of November 2, the UN appeal for $348 million to provide food, water and other humanitarian aid for those

More than 6700 motorists will have $2 million worth of fines repaid after faults were found at eight red light camera intersections in Victoria. The state government announced the move after Road Safety Camera Commissioner Gordon Lewis found the amber lights had changed too quickly at the eight intersections. Deputy Premier Peter Ryan says the lights have been fixed and no more cases of unfair fines are expected. “As I understand it ... once they are set they should be fine,” he told reporters. “Nevertheless ... we will by agreement with the commissioner develop a system to undertake the audit that he has requested.”  - AAP

A Syrian girl who fled with her family from the violence in their village, rests at a displaced camp, in the Syrian village of Atmeh, near the Turkish border with Syria. Most of the displaced people in the tent camp rising near this village on the Syrian-Turkish border are children. All have fled the violence of Syria’s civil war further south. inside Syria had received $157 million — just 45 per cent of the requirement. Ging said about half the aid is being delivered to conflict areas and half to those who have fled to safer areas inside the country. “This is putting an unsustainable burden on first and foremost the neighboring states,” Ging said. “There isn’t a fair burden sharing with those countries who have so generously opened their borders and allowed those hundreds of thousands of people to flee. They are carrying the lion’s share of the financial cost.” Ging said a key message at the meeting will be an appeal

for a broader base of donors to share the financial burden, especially to the wealthy Gulf states. The big funders currently are the European Union, the United States, Britain, Germany, Russia, Norway, Australia, Canada, Sweden and Switzerland, he said. There are no major donors from Muslim countries, but Ging said he hopes that will change since he is co-chairing the meeting with the EU, the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. The UN will also be making “a big push and a big appeal to convert the rhetoric of con-

cern for the plight of the Syrian people into more concerted and effective political action to end the conflict, because that is what is creating the humanitarian consequences,” Ging said. Peter Maurer, head of the Geneva-based International Committee of the Red Cross, said his organisation can’t cope with some of Syria’s humanitarian needs despite its improved operations in the country because of the expanding conflict. Activists say the 20-month civil war has killed more than 36,000 people and forced hundreds of thousands from their homes.

Prince not sheepish on wool By Julia Carlisle Farmers, fashionistas and even some fluffy sheep gathered to meet Prince Charles at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art and talk about Australia’s wool industry. As part of The Campaign For Wool, the prince met with five Aussie designers - Josh Goot, Dion Lee, Kym Ellery, Camilla Freeman-Topper (of Camilla and Marc) and Akira Isogawa - who all showed off their wool creations. The prince, who is a patron of The Campaign for Wool, was happy to stop and chat with the designers - as well as one of the models - at the event yesterday, which was hosted by Australian Wool Innovation. Lee, who booked himself a place in February’s prestigious International Woolmark Prize competition in London, by winning the Australian leg in July with his elegant and edgy tailored grey wool dress, was happy to show the prince his creation. The 27-year-old Sydneybased designer said the prince liked the outfit, which featured

Lee said he chatted to Prince Charles about the Australian wool industry - what it was like working in it as an Australian fashion designer and the influences upon the industry. “It was great to hear his feed-

Modelling an Akira Isogawa design, Bec Bisset - who was also holding a toy sheep caught the Prince’s eye as he perused the five outfits. The prince even took a detour

to speak with her: “He said, ‘I didn’t realise you were real’ - he thought I was a mannequin,” Bisset said. “But I said, ‘the sheep isn’t real’. “He asked me about my clothes, whether they were warm and comfortable and he also asked who designed them.” Prince Charles himself was dressed in a navy suit made of Australian merino wool from Tasmania and designed by tailors Anderson and Sheppard in the UK. “We are very pleased to be given this opportunity to meet with HRH Prince of Wales and present some of our important Campaign for Wool partners,” said Stuart McCullough, AWI CEO. “With the support and endorsement of its patron, the global Campaign for Wool continues to connect to consumers around the world highlighting the benefits of wool in apparel and interiors.” Lee, who won $50,000 for the Australian prize, is now one of five global designers in the running for the $100,000 International Woolmark Prize, judged during London Fashion Week.  - AAP

The former flatmate and chauffeur of British TV presenter Jimmy Savile faces more questions from police after he was arrested over historic abuse allegations. Ray Teret was held by officers from Greater Manchester Police by detectives investigating three separate claims of sexual abuse. Two men aged 61 and 71 were arrested on Thursday in Altrincham, Greater Manchester, on suspicion of rape. Police emphasised that the accusations were not linked to the national inquiry into abuse by disgraced TV presenter Savile, with whom Teret worked with and once shared a flat.

• Prisoners dig tunnel Officials in Nepal say a dozen inmates including Indian and Bangladeshi nationals dug a tunnel and escaped from a prison in the Himalayan country’s southeast. Police officer Chatra Karki says the inmates escaped from the prison about 400km southeast of Katmandu. Police were searching the area for the escaped prisoners. The inmates dug a 12-metre-long tunnel out of the prison walls using common tools that were available inside the prison. They included inmates from Nepal, India and Bangladesh convicted of crimes ranging from theft to kidnapping and murder.

Arachchige picked up the 34-year-old victim on July 7. She was intoxicated and fell asleep in the passenger seat during the journey but woke to find him rubbing her leg.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Saturday, November 10, 2012



Life sentence for deadly attack Gabrielle Giffords limped to the front of the courtroom and stared silently as she came face-to-face for the first time with the man who tried to kill her. Giffords stared at Jared Lee Loughner as he was sentenced yesterday to seven life terms for the January 2011 slayings that left six people dead, and for the attempted assassination of a member of Congress. Giffords herself was left partially blind, with a paralyzed right arm and injuries to her brain. The former congresswoman hadn’t been near Loughner since the deadly rampage outside a meet-and-greet at a supermarket. Giffords’ astronaut husband told Loughner what Giffords couldn’t, before he was sentenced to seven life terms for the January 2011 slayings and attempted assassination of a member of Congress. “Mr. Loughner, you may have put a bullet through her head, but you haven’t put a dent in her spirit and her commitment to make the world a better place,” Mark Kelly said. Giffords, wearing a black brace around her torso, looked closely at the 24-year-old Loughner for several minutes without uttering a word. Loughner returned their gaze, but showed no emotion. His mother sobbed nearby. Loughner was then ordered to serve the seven consecutive life sentences, plus 140 years in federal prison for the shootings that also wounded 13, including Giffords. His guilty plea enables him to avoid a federal death sentence. No state charges will be filed. The sentencing marked the end of a nearly two-year-long saga in which Loughner, who has schizophrenia, was forcibly medicated at a Missouri prison medical facility so he can be competent to understand the charges against him. US District Judge Larry Burns recommended he remain there indefinitely. Some victims, including Giffords, welcomed the plea deal as a way to move on. It spared victims and their families from having to go through a potentially lengthy and traumatic trial and locks Loughner up for life. At the hearing, Loughner looked nothing like the smiling bald man with a bruise around his eye seen in the mug shot taken after the shooting. He had closely cropped brown hair and was wearing dress pants, shirt and tie. One by one, his victims had the

chance to tell him how his actions immeasurably changed their lives. They approached the podium to address Loughner, and asked the judge if they could turn to face him. Loughner told the judge that he would not speak, and sat showing no visible emotion at a table with his attorneys. The last victim to approach the podium was Giffords, causing the courtroom to go quiet and somber. The couple had been sitting several rows behind the prosecutor’s table, across the room from Loughner. As they sat in the courtroom, Kelly put his arm around her, and she would lean into him. When they made their way gingerly to the podium, the 42-year-old Giffords, dressed in black pants and a turquoise shirt, limped. Kelly held her arm and spoke to Loughner, who stared blankly at the couple. “Gabby would trade her own life to bring back any one of those you savagely murdered on that day,” Kelly said. “Gabby works harder in one minute of an hour fighting to make each individual moment count for something than most of us work on an entire day.” Kelly added: “Her life has been forever changed. Plans she had for our family and her career have been immeasurably altered. Every day is a continuous struggle to do those things she once was so good at.” Kelly kissed Giffords when he was done. He grabbed her hand and helped her walk back to her seat. Susan Hileman, who was shot three times while trying to save her 9-yearold neighbor, shook as she spoke. “We’ve been told about your demons, about the illness that skewed your thinking,” she said. “Your parents, your schools, your community, they all failed you. It’s all true. It’s not enough.” Officials at Pima Community College had suspended Loughner over safety concerns after his classroom disruptions. They told him that if he wanted to return, he would have to get a mental health clearance. Loughner withdrew. The court-appointed psychologist who treated Loughner has warned that although Loughner was competent to plead guilty, he remained severely mentally ill and his condition could deteriorate under the stress of a trial. Authorities said they will return Loughner to the Missouri prison facil-

Legal experts had predicted that the only viable defense for Loughner was an insanity defense, given the number of witnesses and video surveillance footage. Still, Loughner never mounted such a defense. Burns said Loughner did not have an insanity case because the evidence indicated he was aware of his actions and knew they were wrong. In fact, the judge noted, an examination of Loughner’s computer showed the 24-year-old had researched Giffords and the federal death penalty beforehand. “It would not have washed,” the judge said. Loughner planned the attacks by getting a gun, high-capacity pistol magazine and ear plugs and lying in wait for Giffords at the grocery store, Burns said.

Fiscal crisis delays Obama The White House is making America’s high-stakes fiscal crisis its top priority after President Barack Obama’s reelection, underscoring the vital importance of averting severe year-end tax increases and spending cuts as Obama heads toward a second term. The newly re-elected Obama is also weighing replacements for highprofile officials expected to leave his Cabinet and the White House soon. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton both want to step down but have indicated a willingness to push their departures into next year, or at least until successors are confirmed. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta also wants to retire next year. The president privately delved into both issues Thursday, his first full day back in Washington following his re-election on Tuesday. The president and his team were also assessing how congressional Republicans were positioning themselves following the election before saying much publicly about his second term. In his victory speech Tuesday night, Obama offered a call for reconciliation after a divisive campaign. But he made

President Barack Obama clear he had an agenda in mind, citing a need for changes in the tax code, as well as immigration reform and climate change. Obama aides want to avoid what they believe was an overreach by President George W. Bush, who declared after narrowly winning re-election that he had “political capital” and intended to spend it. One of Bush’s first moves was to push to privatise federal Social Security pensions, a plan that was roundly rejected by Congress.

The White House believes Obama has a clear mandate on one key issue: raising taxes on families making more than $250,000 a year. Obama senior adviser David Plouffe said voters “clearly chose the president’s view of making sure the wealthiest Americans are asked to do a little bit more” to help shrink the federal deficit. The president has long advocated allowing tax cuts first passed by Bush to expire for upper-income earners. But he gave in to Republican demands in 2010 and allowed the cuts to continue, angering many Democrats. Both parties agree that the combination of tax increases and spending cuts set to hit on January 1, the so-called fiscal cliff, could plunge the economy back into recession. Republican House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said he wanted to compromise with the re-elected president. And he said the House would be willing to accept higher tax revenue under the right conditions as part of a more sweeping attempt to reduce deficits. The White House wants consistency in its “fiscal cliff” negotiating team, meaning Geithner is likely to put off his departure.

Investor confidence on the up


ith the New Zealand sharemarket recently pushing through multiyear highs, it’s clear that investor confidence has improved. This is also being reflected in the new issuance market, with the upcoming float of Moa and the planned listing of the Fonterra Shareholders’ Fund in a few weeks time. There are generally two ways that investors can invest in the sharemarket. They can purchase the shares of a company from a current shareholder, via the New Zealand Stock Exchange (NZX). This is known as trading in the secondary market. This type of transaction is generally facilitated by a sharebroker and a brokerage fee is incurred. Alternatively an investor can purchase shares of a company via a ‘new issue’ or what is commonly referred to as an ‘initial public offer’ (IPO). The company that issues shares in an IPO is dealing in the primary market. When dealing in the secondary market, an Authorised Financial Adviser will be able to give you personalised advice and research on the company that you may be interested in. There are often industry reports and various other releases by the company to the NZX that gives a potential investor a fair idea of how the company is performing.

Over 200 people turned up to get an early peak at Christmas in the Ashburton Arcade recently, including (above) Nichola Maginness (left) and Gabrielle Simpson.

Christmas came early Christmas has well and truly arrived and judging by the turnout at a joint festive function in the Arcade last night – it couldn’t have come soon enough. More than 200 residents piled in to the Ashburton Arcade to attend the Sneak a Peak at Christmas event, hosted by The China Shop and Kitchen Kapers. The night showcased a large variety of Christmas decorations for the home, table setting displays, a selection of gift ranges and included fresh fudge tasting and wild country tastings.

Our current sales are exceeding our supply & we have buyers waiting

The China Shop owner Sharron Wilson said the night was a great success and was generated by prior interest. “We’ve had people asking us for two, even three weeks leading up to last night when we were going to have our function. “The demand was clear and people just can’t wait, they get really excited about it and enjoy the occasion,” Mrs Wilson said. Masterchef’s Chantelle O’Brien served up a true Christmas feast – filling the Arcade with the smell of cooking ham.

“It’s why more people are choosing McGregors”

Phone Enquiries: 308 6173 Online Enquiries:

Aries 21 March - 20 April Your focus is clear and your ambitions may be stronger than usual, but it might not be the best time to aim for the top job just yet, especially as someone may want to deprive you of it. Soon you may be in a position to knock the spots off many of your competitors and will be able to jump into the situation you have been hoping and waiting for.

TAurus 21 April - 21 May Currently the motives of friends and colleagues may be unclear. You might appreciate staying in the background, especially if someone seems to be on a power trip. It might be easier to spend time with quiet friends who you already get along with. However, with Venus currently encouraging you to indulge, a health plan could come under pressure.

Gemini 22 May - 21 June Take advantage of any career opportunities that come your way, although a tendency to act too quickly may not be wise. Before you make a move, think things through and listen to your intuition. If you get a good feeling then go for it. It also helps to be careful when dealing with people today, as there is potential for arguments.

CAnCer 22 June - 23 July If the right words seem to escape you, try saying nothing for a while. Sometimes your silence says more than any number of words. Some frustrations here and there won’t be enough to ruin your day, especially when your optimistic attitude encourages a warm and friendly atmosphere. Yet you may find yourself arranging a lunch or dinner party.

Leo 24 July - 23 August Be enthusiastic and spread those amazing ideas around that you’ve been dreaming up. If the feedback on one of them isn’t up to the mark, you’ll find a way to cope. Romance-wise there is a chance of meeting up with an ex or old flame. Mercury retrograde hints that you may have a lot to talk about and most of it could be entirely positive.

VirGo 24 August - 23 September Minor annoyances could be an issue early on, when some unexpected twists and turns could surface. Most of your problems could be more easily sorted out by making it crystal-clear what you expect from others. Your social life may not be a major focus and therefore may not have too much appeal. Staying in could prove to be more relaxing.

LibrA 24 September - 23 October With the Moon in your sign, today could be a winner but take time to clarify what you mean, especially in important meetings or in the midst of a business discussion. A misunderstanding could unfortunately ruin all your hard work. A focus on your health zone suggests it may be a good time to go and see to that niggling complaint.

sCorpio 24 October - 22 November Changes may be on the agenda but it’s how you choose to respond to them that will make all the difference. Although you may want to move ahead, you might first need to confront certain limitations that have been holding you back for some time. This may not be easy with Saturn now hovering in your sign but this can also double your resolve.

sAGiTTArius 23 November - 21 December You’ve probably been handling relationship issues quite well recently and even if things have been bumpier, ongoing influences could well make up for it. Currently, you seem to be getting plenty of attention, with others only too keen to include you in their plans. However, today you gain a lot by relying on your own resourcefulness.

CApriCorn 22 December - 20 January There is a chance you may encounter tension or indecision where your views are concerned. Try not to get too involved in other people’s thought processes or problems. Leave well alone as you have your own issues to sort out. With a focus on your social zone, those contacts with your colleagues are currently important and beneficial.

AquArius 21 January 19 February Give attention to your image, especially if dressing for success is important. This might be a good time to improve your looks and revamp your wardrobe. Be diplomatic, especially if money could become a bone of contention. Relationships can be harmonious, particularly if you avoid bringing up things that are probably best left in the past.

pisCes 20 February - 20 March You may be feeling restless or slightly unsettled. If that is the case, try not to be held in the sway of your emotions or let them guide your actions. Try not to do anything on the spur of the moment if you can help it. Sometimes it’s okay not to take the initiative and to go with the flow. Yet, do be open to any help that might be offered.

movie The Princess Diaries TV2 7.30pm Pretty Woman director Garry Marshal is at the helm of this one-way ticket to Clicheville – a sugary wish-fulfilment comedy about a geek (Anne Hathaway) who becomes an overnight sensation when informed that she’s the heir to the throne of an obscure European country (a tactfully cast Julie Andrews plays the queen). Nothing royal, but good, clean fun nonetheless.
