Ploughing coach seeks Russia seat By Tim Cronshaw

Tim.c@theguardian.co.nz

Win or lose this weekend Malcolm Taylor will be heading to next year’s world ploughing championships in Russia – as a coach or competitor. The Putaruru ploughman is competing in the reversible class at the two-day New Zealand Ploughing Championships at Chertsey and his performance will dictate his role. For the past two years Taylor has acted as a coach for Timaru’s Bob Mehrtens at the Kenya and German world championships and will perform the same function at this year’s Minnesota championships. Mehrtens won the national title last year so he represents New Zealand and Taylor travels with the team to the United States as a coach. But this weekend he’s a competitor vying with Mehrtens in the five ploughman field for a New Zealand blazer to go to Russia. So far Taylor has represented New Zealand as a competitor at seven world events and is keen to build on that number. But if he gets beaten he’s happy to coach. “I have two mindsets. I’m quite passionate when I go out and have been there for 14 years, but if anyone wants help I’m happy to help them whether it’s starting out or at the top level. Both me and Bob are extremely competitive, but after the ploughing is all over helping New Zealand is the big picture.’’

The tight kinship within the small competitive ploughing fraternity means that he can switch roles freely and is happy to share his expertise in a coaching capacity when he’s not in the tractor seat. Taylor said the small reversible ploughing community was vastly

experienced and his coaching was limited to providing technical tips and encouraging them. At the world level the competition was as much about a mental approach and being in the “right headspace’’ as working the tractor and plough controls, he said.

“You could try teaching them but it would be a waste of time,’’ quipped Taylor. “My way of coaching is that I can improve their ploughing but I can’t improve them. They have the experience and I just pick little things all the time to keep them at the right lev-

el.’’ He said the competitors knew themselves if they had made a mistake and as a coach he had to help them fix it quickly. With 560 points available to world competitors, most of them are within the 460-480 point range, and the difference between the top three often comes down to 3-5 points. That’s why it’s critical that they nail the joining furrow and this is where Taylor earns his keep as a coach, ensuring New Zealand’s representative links one run to another crisply. Unlike conventional ploughing, reversible competitors turn their plough with tractor hydraulics at the end of the furrow and make the next pass along the previous strip. Taylor was told when reversible ploughing was accepted in 2005 that New Zealand would never win the class and he, Mehrtens and other competitors have worked hard to reach the international standard. The reversible field at Chertsey is smaller at five competitors than the conventional line-up of 15 ploughmen and women, including Taylor’s wife Angela, while the popular vintage class has 19 entries. Taylor has been working hard developing the family’s Putaruru dairy farm and has been shaking off any rust this week during practice sessions next to the competition site at the Wilkinson family’s farm at Chertsey.

Who ya gonna call – 111 or 105? Police have launched a new non-emergency phone number in a bid to reduce pressure on the 111 number service. 105 is a national non-emergency number that will be answered 24/7 by highly-trained police staff. It is free to call from all landline and mobile numbers, while a website, 105.police.govt.nz is also in place to report non-emergency crimes.

Y DA O T US L L CA

Senior Sergeant Leigh Jenkins said the number would be useful for police to keep emergency lines clear for critical calls and to allow for information to more easily be sent to local police. “Currently when you call the station it is picked up by anyone across the country and while any information does get back to us, this will hopefully make things easier,” he said. It has been more than 60 years

on from the first 111 call, the launch of the new name is a milestone for police, police commissioner Mike Bush said. “We want people to use 105 to report non-emergency situations. For example, if your car has been stolen, your property has been damaged, or you want to give police information about crime in your area; use 105,” he said. “111, on the other hand, should still be called immediately if a

crime is taking place or there’s a threat to life or property. It’s the number you use to connect with police, fire and emergency, and the ambulance services.” A public education and marketing campaign will ensure all New Zealanders are aware of the 105 number. The public education campaign kicks off today and uses posters, brochures and social media to help inform the public

about the number and when and how to use it. Bush says police have planned for an increase in non-emergency calls with the introduction of 105. “We’ll launch our marketing campaign – including a jingle designed to guarantee 105 is a number you’ll never forget – once we are sure we understand the demand which has been generated from the public education campaign,” he said.

The long, winding road to a new civic centre and library After 15 years of delays and debate, the Ashburton District will finally have a new civic centre and library. It will come with a $51.6 million price tag, but will give the district a state-of-the-art complex. Reporter Sue Newman looks at the journey.

A

shburton’s big ticket civic project, the new council administration headquarters and library, has been on the district council’s radar for years. It has been discussed, debated, discarded and put on hold, but this week the councillors signed off on a project that will see the Ashburton District with a stateof-the-art facility that will be fit for purpose decades into the future. The new complex will be built in Baring Square East and will see the demolition of the county council building, the Baring Square Methodist Church hall and a commercial building fronting Havelock Street. Historic Pioneer Hall will be retained and incorporated into the new building. This week councillors agreed to build a complex that will include facilities and features that will future-proof it for decades. It will come with a $51.6 million price

tag and will be paid for by ratepayers over the next 40 years. Issues with the current administration building were first signalled in 2004. It remained on the distant radar and, in the years following, the council’s administration building was shaped and reshaped internally to accommodate growing staff numbers and changing community needs. Looking back at the stuttering progress the project made over many years, delays can be counted in significantly rising costs. The council originally planned to spend $300,000 in 2009/10, $200,000 in 2012/13 and $250,000 in 2013/14. Back then a total budget had been tagged at $6 million with the project to be completed by 2019. Whenever it was discussed, however, other big ticket projects made a more urgent call on the council’s cash reserves. Over that time an elderly villa

on a neighbouring section was utilised as extra office space, but after several cold and leaky winters time was called on the villa and the third floor council chamber in the main civic building was turned into extra office space. That meant a new council chamber had to be found and the old county building in Baring Square East, vacant since the art gallery and museum moved to their new home on West Street, was brought back into use. A temporary council chamber was created on the upper level and the first meeting was held in that building in October 2015. Discussions then began in earnest on a replacement building. When the current civic headquarters was built in 1974 its designers were aiming high. The building opened on April 6, 1974, came with a $460,000 price tag and was believed to have future-proofed what was then

the Ashburton Borough Council’s home well into the 21st century. It was designed with three stories, plus a basement, and it provided for an additional storey to be added to meet future needs. Changing building standards and the Canterbury earthquakes meant the cost of adding that fourth storey became prohibitive. The earthquakes damaged the town’s library so that meant it was also in the mix for the new build. In September, 2015, a project team was established with then mayor Angus McKay and councillors Russell Ellis, Peter Reveley and Neil Brown on board. They were looking at seven site options, a building that would cost around $16 million and a completion date in 2018. Opus was commissioned to undertake a feasibility study on various sites and community open days were held where ideas

and suggestions were gathered and considered. Site options were narrowed down to six, including the current building, Baring Square East, Eastfield and the Balmoral Hall site. Another round of community consultation followed and Baring Square East was chosen, but it came with options including the demolition of the Baring Square Methodist Church. This was later discounted. The site selection process ground to a halt after the October 2016 election, with the new team of councillors wanting to revisit the project and sites available. They also wanted the option of a standalone library on Ashburton College land investigated. It took until June, 2017, before they came back to their starting point and the signing off on a build of the library and civic centre in Baring Square East. However, it took until mid-2018 before a final land deal was done with the Methodist Church that saw the council buy the church hall. Funds generated from the sale were tagged by the church for its restoration and strengthening project. An architect and design teams were appointed and planning started in earnest. Concept plans went out for public consultation in March and 169 submissions were received. And this week, more than 15 years of planning rounded out with the signing off of the $51.6 million project. The new complex is expected to be built in 2021 and 2022. It will include the council’s administration headquarters, a modern library, performance space, meeting rooms and the district’s civil defence emergency service base. It will be include enhanced energy and cost efficiency features and is likely to be built using sustainable materials.

Council called to lead climate change By Sue Newman

sue.n@theguardian.co.nz

Planning for the impact of climate change on the Ashburton District requires ambition and strong leadership, Ashburton Forest and Bird spokesperson Edith Smith said. She’s challenging the Ashburton District Council to take the lead, to be forward thinking, to develop clear strategies and to take the challenging steps needed to meet nationally-agreed climate change targets. Smith spoke to members of the council’s policy and by-law sub committee on Thursday during submission hearings on the council’s proposed climate change policy. “We cannot ignore climate change as the scientific facts, social consequences and political choices which will shape our future are obvious and local leadership is essential,” she said. In doing that the council should be setting a good example by taking stock if its in-house climate change emissions. It should set targets to reduce those emissions as an indication of the importance of reducing emissions to the people of the district, Smith said. Since 1990 New Zealand’s emissions had increased by 19.6 per cent, one of the largest increases in the world, per capita. Methane

from dairy cows was a significant contributor and its impact was 30 times more damaging than carbon over a 100-year period. The carbon issue could be resolved by planting trees but there weren’t the same solutions for methane, she said. “There is a great opportunity to work with the zero carbon legislation to ensure that ADC takes the initiative as a leader in our community to support climate change action locally.” The council had to factor into its climate change policy the ways in which it would offset increasing emissions district wide, Smith said. “We need to remind ourselves that we’re a small nation, but we’re still fifth in the world with emissions, we’re up there with major industrial nations, we’re up there with China and India.” She was critical of the council for losing opportunities with its water race closures to enhance the flow in the Ashburton River. “This was lost by diverting the water into the managed aquifer recharge project to help mask the pollution to ground water which has been caused by over-abstraction, intensive farming and resultant nitrate leaching.” That had pushed out the target date for increasing the river’s flow to 10 cumecs from 2023 to 2032, she said.

Edith Smith “MAR is disguising the damage done by providing false hope. If we really wish to combat climate change we have to change the way we farm. We must farm within limits and accept our responsibility to stop leachate seeping into the rivers and waterways.” The district could not continue

depleting waterways and freshwater ecosystems; the focus had to change to supporting sustainable agricultural activities, Smith said. “There is a growing mood of climate change anxiety and feeling of helplessness experienced by many in our community about

their future and people look to the council to provide easily understood information about what climate change will mean locally. They also want to know what action would be taken to reduce damaging emissions.” She suggested the council should establish a climate change group that involved a cross section of the community to work through issues and to come up with options. The idea of a diverse community working group also gained support from Te Runanga O Arowhenua with Kylie Hall and Karl Davidson saying any working group must include children. Their views and their ideas were critical, Hall said. “As a community we need to start talking about solutions, about how we’re going to do this.” The council’s policy was good but it needed to build on it and make it stronger, she said. “You need to go back now and have community input.” Every group in the community needed to be part of the conversation around climate change Davidson said, and that group had to include young people. “The beauty of our young people is that they are straight up, they’ll tell you to your face and that’s sometimes a bitter pill for us adults, when they tell you something directly.”

Concerns over road safety near schools By Jaime Pitt-MacKay Jaime.p@theguardian.co.nz

Concerns have been raised by local principals around the potentially dangerous behaviour they have seen on, and around, the roads near schools in the district. Concerns were raised at the Ashburton District Road Safety Co-ordinating committee meeting around traffic speed near schools and dangerous road crossing behaviour. Ashburton Intermediate School principal Brent Gray said he had some concerns, especial-

ly around drop-off and pick-up times, especially when weather conditions are poor, after a student was struck by a vehicle recently. “It was because of a number of circumstances that occurred, it was a wet day and the visibility was poor, but on wet days we are getting flooding along the footpath and we have students that are jumping to avoid getting wet feet and popping out in odd spots,” he said. “People often drive along looking for the best spot where to

drop their kids off and that can lead to a moment’s inattention. “It is not just about the kids but the drivers as well, we do have regular stuff in our newsletters and talk about it in assemblies with the students.” At Allenton School, principal Bruce Tilby has been raising concerns regularly with parents, and raised them again with the road safety committee and in the school’s latest newsletter. Children at the school are instructed to only use marked crossings on Harrison Street and

Allens Road, and parents are asked to not call their children across other parts of the road, or drop off students in the school’s internal parking. “I watched a parent with two children last Thursday afternoon walk across Harrison Street about 50 metres from the crossing, which was in action,” he said in the school newsletter. “There were a lot of cars driving past and the parent was already over the halfway line before one of her small children even began crossing. This is an accident

waiting to happen.” Ashburton sub-area supervisor Senior Sergeant Leigh Jenkins said he shared the concerns of the principals and said police we would take actions to ensure the roads near schools are a safe place. “We have a youth education officer who we want to be the nice face of police for the kids and the other officers ticketing parents if needed and more officers will be tasked to do patrolling near schools around those drop-off/ pick-up times,” Jenkins said.

■■VARIETY THEATRE ASHBURTON

Jessie takes Sister Act dancers through their paces By Susan Sandys

susan.s@theguardian.co.nz

Jessie Thomson loves to dance and has been a student of the art since the age of three. The 21-year-old is now revelling in her passion more than ever, coming up with some creative moves as the choreographer of Variety Theatre Ashburton’s Sister Act. “I’m having a blast working with the cast, they are such a great cast,” she said. Thomson had been learning to dance with Ashburton teacher Charmaine Quaid since a pre-schooler, and now taught at Quaid’s Dance Worx school. She also works as a nanny and hopes to open her own dance school one day. “Dance is an amazing thing to do, and everyone should be able to enjoy it, it’s a feel-good thing,” Thomson said. And as the choreographer for Sister Act, she had been inspired somewhat by the movie, but more so by seeing the live Showbiz production last year. The show’s director, Regan Jackson, had also seen the show, and he was helping out by giving lots of feedback.

“It’s a real team thing,” Thomson said. She was giving her team of dancers amongst the 15 nun characters a good workout each session, as they tried the new routines combined with singing. “There’s a lot of formations and a lot of work to complement the costumes,” Thomson said. She urged Mid Cantabrians to come along and see the show. “You are getting absolutely amazing music, singing and acting for your money,” she said. Meanwhile, preparations for the show are gaining momentum this week as Variety Theatre members pack in to the Ashburton Trust Event Centre, where Sister Act will stage from May 24 to June 1. Production manager Bridget Danielson said a 20-foot container with the set’s flooring was to arrive from the North Island yesterday, while a 40-foot container with the set would arrive today. “It gets quite exciting, it’s a bit like Christmas, waiting for it to be unpacked and see what’s there,” Danielson said. “And once the cast see it on the stage, everything just falls into place.”

The Sister Act dance routines involve a lot of formations, says choreographer Jessie Thomson.

Japanese martial arts to go on show A mesmerising collection of Japanese martial arts items, accompanied with a history of the tradition, will be on show at the Ashburton Museum for a month from May 18. The Spirit of Budo: The History of Japan’s Martial Arts is a special exhibition that will bring the ancient martial arts culture to life with battlefield combat techniques (bujutsu) and an exploration of how the spirit of martial arts remains inherent in the lives of many Japanese people today (budo).

As part of the exhibition, the EA Networks Centre will host a Japanese martial arts showcase on Friday, June 14, where people will be able to see JION International Karate Dojo and Ashburton Aikido Dojo perform. Ashburton Museum director Tanya Robinson said the museum was honoured to be welcoming the international exhibition to Ashburton and the wider Canterbury region. “The exhibition has been to 39 countries. Ashburton is one of only three museums to host

the exhibition in New Zealand. In fact, we are the only venue in the South Island,” she said. “We are delighted to be able to showcase this phenomenal collection for our community. It will be a wonderful opportunity for visitors to not only broaden their understanding of Japanese martial arts, but also to consider how elements of this ancient practice forms Japan’s social history and the Japanese way of thinking.” The exhibition consists of two parts. The first part concerns the

history of Japanese martial arts, including original and reproduced items, such as armour, helmets and ceremonial swords. Visitors will be able to explore how the art developed and changed from the 8th Century through to the 19th Century. The second part focuses on the contemporary place of martial arts and how it transitioned from combat (bujutsu) to a physical exercise tempering mind, body and spirit (budo). The exhibition has been developed by The Japan Foundation,

which engages in international cultural exchange activities in co-operation with more than 130 countries. The foundation collaborates with museums from around the world on a wide range of exhibitions, from traditional through to contemporary arts.

Signs show speeding common By Jaime Pitt-MacKay Jaime.p@theguardian.co.nz

Vehicles are breaking the speed limit more that 30 per cent of the time on some Mid Canterbury roads, statistics from the Ashburton District Council show, with Seafield Road being the worst. Vehicle speed display signs on Bridge Street, Seafield Road and Forest Drive in Methven all show more than one in three vehicles violating the speed limit. The council has 16 vehicle speed display locations around the district with two units moving around these sites on a monthly timeframe. Each site logs a vehicle’s speed as it approaches the sign and records the time of day that the vehicle passed. Vehicles travelling on Seafield Road were the worst offenders, with 51.87 per cent of the 20,116 vehicles recorded breaking the speed limit. The fastest speed recorded on that section of road, which has a speed limit of 70km/h, was 156km/h. On Bridge Street, the fastest record speed was 114 km/h, with 37,591 vehicles recorded as breaking the speed limit 35.18 per cent of the time.

Warning to check chimneys By Jaime Pitt-MacKay Jaime.p@theguardian.co.nz

Vehicle speed display signs, like the ones pictured above, have revealed vehicles are breaking the speed limit at least 30 per cent of the time in some locations. PHOTO ASHBURTON GUARDIAN In Methven, 34,283 vehicles were recorded on Forest Drive, 31.73 per cent of those breaking the speed limit, with the fastest

reaching 115km/h. Ashburton Gorge Road was the quietest of the three sites monitored, recording 2030 ve-

hicles. Only 5.09 per cent of those violated the speed limit, with the highest speed recorded 109km/h.

Firefighters are once again reminding people to get their chimneys cleaned after the Rakaia Fire Brigade was called to a chimney fire on Thursday evening. The brigade was called to a house in Hatfield at around 6.45pm after reports of a chimney fire, deputy chief Fred Clarkson said. “It was out on arrival so we did our checks to make sure everything was safe and just to reassure the owners,” he said. “It is well worth people getting their chimneys checked to make sure they are clean. These guys told us when we were there that they hadn’t had it cleaned in 18 months.” Friday morning was busy for members of the Ashburton Fire Brigade, who were called to two medical assists in less than an hour. “We didn’t make it to the first one, that was alright and the second one was fairly straightforward, but it goes to show you never know what is going to happen,” fire chief Alan Burgess said.

First moa footprint removed NZME After battling the elements for more than two days there was a wave of excitement yesterday afternoon after the first moa footprint was removed from its three million-year Maniototo home. Carefully removing the fossilised moa footprints from the Kyeburn River was proving more "painstaking'' than expected. Workers at the site are battling against the elements and time as it is believed they need the fiitprints to be removed before dark because the consent for the diversion of the Kyeburn River runs out yesterday. Staff from Otago Museum and University of Otago finally removed the first of the fossilised prints, thought to be millions of years old, after 3.30pm. The team was to work until dark. Once back at the museum the pieces would go into isolation spaces and its conservation manager would develop a plan of what to do with them and how to get them on display. Prof Ewan Fordyce, of the University of Otago’s department of geology, in waste deep water, used a concrete saw, chainsaw and finally a geology hammer to

remove the footprint. The footprint was then placed on a piece of plywood and covered to protect it from sunlight. The footprints were found in early March by Ranfurly man Michael Johnston while he took his dogs for a swim. Otago Museum marketing manager Hannah Molloy said earlier yesterday afternoon that the team was still trying to manage the water flow into the work site.

“There’s a real balance between having enough water in to keep the pump going and enough out so the level drops.’’ Once the prints were exposed they would start cleaning the prints and the work of cutting the fossils off would start. The work was a much “slower and painstaking process’’ than expected, she said. “The timeframe will all depend on what they find when they start cutting them off,

which they haven’t done before.’’ After the footprints were removed they would be secured onto another surface, wrapped and numbered so they could be transported to the museum. There was a lot of activity at the isolated site yesterday. Once back at the museum the pieces would go into isolation spaces and its conservation manager would develop a plan of what to do with them and how to get them on display.

One person has died after a bus went off the road on State Highway One at Hikurangi, near Whangarei. Sergeant Lance Goulsbro said the Ritchies bus was heading south towards Whangarei when it appears to have hit the roadside barrier before it rolled off the bridge and landed in a shallow stream about five to six metres below the bridge. The male driver was the only occupant of the bus at the time. A police spokeswoman said officers were notified of the incident near Piano Hill Rd around 4.30pm. “There were no other vehicles involved,” she said. “Sadly, one person had died at the scene.” Goulsbro said it would be a difficult job to remove the bus. A crane may be needed to lift it out, which could mean that road would have to be closed. Members of the Hikurangi and Whangarei fire brigades were at the scene to cut free the driver. No other vehicles were involved.

Our story Hospice Mid Canterbury has been working in the Mid Canterbury community since 2015, and in that short time has supported 150 clients, and their families. Discussions about establishing a hospice service began in 2013 followed by community consultation in 2014. Later that year the Hospice Mid Canterbury Trust was established with a diverse board of trustees.

In 2015 a manager was appointed, service providers chosen and volunteers were recruited and trained. By mid-2015, clients started receiving support. Hospice Mid Canterbury is a community based hospice offering support in the home (or rest-home) for people with a life-limiting illness. While it does not provide clinical care, or 24-hour inpatient services, Hospice Mid Canterbury offers a variety of

supports focused on enhancing clients’ quality of life and supporting their family and caregivers. Services include sitting (to give carers a break), transport (for example, to doctor’s appointments), counselling, biography writing (life stories), and therapies including massage, reiki, reflexology and relaxation therapy. All services are free for clients and their families. Hospice Mid Canterbury is

not government funded and relies on the generosity of the community as well as grants to do the work it does. The hospice shop was opened in July 2017 as a way of raising extra funds for services. Currently 40 clients and their families are being supported by Hospice Mid Canterbury service providers and volunteers. Around 90 volunteers working both in the community and the shop make this possible.

Hospice Mid Canterbury is looking to establish a service base. Having this base will allow for a welcoming environment where people can come for information and support. Having a base will also enable Hospice to offer day programmes for activities and companionship, with the focus being very much on living well rather than dying. This will be useful both for clients and their caregivers.

Demystifying death Many of us are completely unprepared when we are faced with anything to do with death, so it seems sensible for us to start talking. We all have questions – Cremation or burial? What is embalming?

Do people have to be embalmed? And so on. Hospice Mid Canterbury, in association with Memory Funerals, invites you to this informal, free event to hear about some of the choices we will have to face, and to ask any questions.

Hospice Mid Canterbury hosts the successful Hospice New Zealand Palliative Care Lecture series at Rosebank Residential Care Community Lounge on the first Thursday of every month 7.30 – 8.30am from February to December. The series has been designed for health care professionals. The lectures have been very well attended and anyone with an interest in end-of-life care is welcome. To see a list of the 2019 lectures, go to the Hospice New Zealand website www.hospice.org.nz and look under Education and Training. A light breakfast is provided, sponsored by Harvey’s Bakehouse. If you are interested, please email the education committee edu.mc.hospice@gmail.com for your details to be added to the mailing list. You will receive an invitation and a flyer each month.

The power of information With life-limiting illness, the search for information and reassurance often begins with a search of the internet and “Doctor Google”. However this information is often overwhelming, hard to navigate and not always accurate. Books, on the other hand, can be a more manageable and trustworthy source. Hospice Mid Canterbury has a great selection of books for all ages, on topics such as caregiving, resilience, dementia, end-oflife and grieving. For children and teenagers, who may be sick or have a sick family member, the journey can be particularly bewildering. The Hospice Mid Canterbury library has books both for those supporting children and teenagers as well as books which young people can read. Living with illness can be a very lonely journey and books can provide a feeling of not being quite so alone. They may help people to understand what is happening now and what they may experience in the future. All the books in the Hospice Mid Canterbury library are available to borrow, free of charge.

To see what is in the collection, check out our website www.hospicemc.nz under the News and Resources tab or contact Christine at the office.

Services we offer

Focus on complementary therapies Hospice Mid Canterbury offers complementary therapies to both clients and caregivers. While these therapies are not the first thing that come to mind when considering palliative care, they are natural and supportive practices which can promote relaxation and reduce tension. They are an important way to help people manage the stress that serious illness brings.

Massage is a therapy which requires the skilful use of touch to soothe away aches and pains, to relieve tension in the body and to promote a sense of well-being. Different techniques are used by the therapist to promote relaxation and to calm both mind and body. Our massage therapist Rebecca is also trained in lymphoedema massage.

Complementary therapies can help:

■■ To reduce stress and tension and promote relaxation. ■■ Promote restful sleep and reduce insomnia. ■■ To relieve anxiety and improve the feeling of well-being. Hospice Mid Canterbury offers massage, reflexology, reiki and relaxation therapy. Like all Hospice services, they are free of charge and provided in the client’s home. Complementary therapies are not regarded as an alternative to medical treatment but can add an extra dimension of care in line with Hospice’s commitment to helping people live well every day. They are safe to use alongside conventional medicine and can be helpful right to the end of life.

Rebecca Perkins Massage therapist

Testimonials: “A very skilled provider. I always leave feeling relaxed.” “I love the massages especially Rebecca’s manner and silence.”

Reflexology is based on the concept that every part of the body is connected by energy pathways, which end in reflex areas in the feet and hands. Rose applies light pressure to reflex points with the thumb and fingers to relax and balance the body. Testimonials: “A wonderful therapy for helping me relax.” Rose Matthews Reflexology therapist

Cherie specialises in relaxation therapy using a variety of techniques including Bowen therapy for relaxation, Emmett techniques for body balance and muscle release and scenar devices to provide bio-feedback. Relaxation therapy can help overcome anxiety, stress, panic attacks and sleeplessness.

Reiki is a gentle, holistic, natural therapy which works with the energy of the body like acupuncture and tai chi. Sue provides this therapy where the client feels most comfortable, using energised hands to soothe and balance the body, reducing tension and promoting relaxation.

Writing life stories Hospice Mid Canterbury is fortunate to have a dedicated team of biographers who are trained to record the life stories of clients. Currently, 14 biographers are working on different clients’ stories. All the stories are fascinating, each in a different way. Claire, the daughter of Graham, has been sitting in on the biography sessions with her father, and this is what she wrote about the process: “Sitting with Dad as he tells his story has been magical and given me moments that I will treasure forever. I feel so very humbled to be working alongside my Dad as he has his biography written by Hospice Mid Canterbury. The biographer has been so professional, supportive and interested, and both Dad and I have been touched by the time and energy that he volunteers to do this. Sitting with Dad as he tells his story has been magical and given me moments that I will treasure forever. Sometimes we relive memories together, sometimes I learn new things about his youth, time before children or even his perspective on our family as we grew up. We have had friends and family members contribute to the story and their tales bring tears of laughter and fondness to our eyes. Looking through old photographs together is also such a special thing to share. Taking the time to be together and prioritising this in a busy world has been a huge gift that the process has given us. I feel even closer to my dad than I did before

Warm welcome at Hospice Shop When customers talk about the Hospice Shop, they don’t just talk about the quality array of clothes and homewares, they also talk about the warm and friendly welcome. Shop manager Tracey Fuller and her team of volunteers love what they do and it shows. Tracey is delighted with the strong team of volunteers who help make the hospice shop her “happy place”. She works hard to foster a caring and supportive environment and appreciates the commitment of her volunteers. “So many who work in the shop do so much more than their rostered hours.” Tracey and her team take pride in presenting donated items looking their best. The volunteers in turn enjoy the work they do in the shop and love nothing more than to help customers put together a perfect outfit or to find a homeware treasure. While the shop has been open less than two years, it has built up a strong core of committed customers who enjoy browsing through the wide range of goods donated to the shop.

Would you like to volunteer for Hospice Mid Canterbury? Without support from volunteers, Hospice Mid Canterbury wouldn’t be able to provide all the services to clients and their families. Our volunteers make a real difference to the lives of people in our community who are living with life-limiting illnesses. There are many ways to help, whether it’s sitting with a client to give caregivers a break,

becoming a hospice biography writer or driving clients to appointments. Perhaps you enjoy retail and would like to help in our hospice shop or assist with fundraising. We are always on the lookout for compassionate, reliable people who want to make a difference in our community by volunteering for Hospice. New volunteers attend an in-

itial training and induction session, and there is on-going support for all volunteers. We also offer bi-monthly education sessions alternating with morning tea café catch-ups.

Synlait shares dive after ruling By Jenny Ruth

the road from Synlait’s land but which isn’t subject to the same covenants affecting Synlait’s land. Another dairy company, Winston Nutritional, is planning to build a milk products factory on the other side of the Yashili property on land that is also not subject to such covenants. Synlait says it had been confident that the land covenants were no longer relevant and that was confirmed by the High Court decision removing the covenants “It made sense that, as a result of zoning and proper planning that allowed for industrial zoning, that the land covenants would be removed by the court, which they were,” Clement says. Synlait had only taken legal title to the land after the High Court decision, he says. “We intend to continue with our plans at Pokeno.” However, the judgment says that Synlait had started earthworks in March last year and started building the factory in May after gaining resource consents. The Pokeno plant is due to be commissioned for the upcoming 2019/20 dairy season.

Mortgage borrowers have never had it so cheap as they have in the last few months but not all of the banks have been playing hard to win over borrowers. Three of the major banks are now offering ultra-low one-year fixed term rates of 3.89 per cent, while those who want to fix for longer over three years can secure 3.95 per cent – the first time threeyear rates have been below 4 per cent. But research by the Herald shows some banks have been much more aggressive in acquiring new home loan business than others. State-owned Kiwibank has made the biggest push growing its home loan book more than 9 per cent in the year to March 31 – much more than the market overall which is up 5.3 per cent to $260 billion. But it remains a minnow compared to the Australian owned banks with less than 7 per cent of the home loan market. BNZ, owned by Australia’s National Australia Bank, has also been on a big drive to grow its loan book increasing it more than 8 per cent and taking its share of the mortgage market to 15.9 per cent as of March 31. Bruce Patten, a mortgage broker with Loan Market, said BNZ had definitely been in acquisition mode and that had been driven by its re-entry into the broker market. “That has been a real driver for them.” BNZ resumed dealing with mortgage brokers in 2015 after 12 years of not using them. Mortgage brokers now account for 17.7 per cent of BNZ’s mortgage origination, up from 13 per cent a year earlier, according to data re-

leased as part of its half-year result last week. Patten said BNZ had lost market share as a result of pulling out of the broker market and they were now trying to “claw back” what had been lost during that time. It remains the smallest of the big four banks when it comes to home loans books. ANZ is the largest with around 30 per cent of the market, while ASB has around 21 per cent and Westpac is just shy of 19 per cent. Patten said Kiwibank was also using a limited number of brokers to boost its share, but the bank had also been pushing its brand awareness under new chief executive Steve Jurkovich. Patten said part of reason people had been moving to Kiwibank was price – competitive rates – and part of it was loyalty and citizenship. “An incredible number want to bank with a New Zealand-owned bank.” But he said Kiwibank was also playing catch-up after losing momentum during a period when it had funding issues. John Bolton, chief executive of Squirrel Home Loans, said there had been a definite shift to use more brokers with ANZ – the country’s largest bank – reporting 41 per cent of its home loans being generated via brokers. “If you went back seven or eight years ago it would be closer to 32 per cent.” Bolton said BNZ was getting more of its natural share of the growth because it was using brokers while Kiwibank was using brokers in Auckland where it has had poor market share. In Australia around 60 per cent of all home loans are generated via brokers, but it is lower than that

here and thought to be around 40 per cent. Bolton said the growth was not surprising given how much more difficult it was for people to navigate bank credit policies. He said the other trends coming through in the past year was the decline in house sales in the Auckland market. From the peak in 2016 the Auckland market was down around 35 per cent, he said. There had also been a skew towards first-home buyers playing a prominent role. Kelvin Davidson, senior property economist at CoreLogic said first-home buyers had been a key source of lending growth in recent months. “So the banks targeting them in a big way will have been more likely to have grown market share. “Geography may well play a role too – banks with larger presences in busy markets such as Wellington and Dunedin will have fared better.” The slowest grower has been Westpac whose home loan book grew 3.5 per cent in the year to March 31, slower than the 5.3 per cent market growth and just 1 per cent in the six months to March 31. Westpac chief executive David McLean said it had grown at a slower rate than the market over the past six months after making an active decision to step out of the “intense competition” being seen. “We are selectively choosing where to compete.” McLean expected the home loan market to grow at 4 to 5 per cent for the full year and said Westpac would definitely be back in the market in the second half of its financial year.

Synlait Milk says it is confident it can find a solution to the ownership problem now afflicting most of the land on which its new Pokeno factory stands because of an adverse Court of Appeal decision. That ruling effectively means the factory was built in breach of covenants affecting Synlait’s land. When Synlait purchased the 28 hectares of land in February 2018 it was conditional on the seller, Stonehill Trustee, procuring the removal of the covenants on the land which restricted its use to grazing, lifestyle farming or forestry. A High Court decision last November had removed the covenants but the owner of adjacent land, Ye Qing and his company New Zealand Industrial Park, has won an appeal against that decision, which was published late yesterday. “Synlait will continue to engage with all parties involved and is confident the covenants issue should be able to be resolved by the parties. The company remains committed to the location,” Synlait chief executive Leon Clement

Huge gun haul at LA home AP A 57-year-old man was released on bond a day after his arrest during a law enforcement raid on a Los Angeles mansion that uncovered more than 1000 guns, according to jail records. Girard Saenz was arrested on suspicion of unlawful transportation and of giving, lending or selling an assault weapon, the Los Angeles Times reported. It wasn’t known if Saenz has an attorney, and a message left at a number for him was not returned. He was released after paying a $50,000 bond, records show. Acting on a tip regarding illegal firearms sales, police and federal agents served a search warrant before dawn at the home valued at millions of dollars in the posh Bel Air neighbourhood. Guns were strewn throughout several of the home’s rooms, authorities said. It took about 30 law enforcement personnel more than 12 hours to remove all the weapons, authorities said. Photos and video from the scene showed stacks of rifles, shotguns, assault weapons and

Others showed a floor stacked with boxes of ammunition. The weapons will be itemized and booked into evidence, police Lt Chris Ramirez said. “I had never seen so many weapons in my career of 31 years,” Ramirez said. “That’s such a big arsenal in a residence like this, in this type of neighbourhood. It’s astounding.” The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and

Explosives said in a statement that authorities received a tip about a person “conducting illegal firearms transaction outside the scope of the federal firearm license” that the person possessed. Saenz is a long-time companion of real estate mogul Cynthia Beck, who owns the property and many others in California, according to records cited by the Times. Beck has three daughters with J Paul Getty’s son Gordon

Getty, the newspaper said. Beck bought the house in January 2001, but it remains unclear what, if any, connection she has to the events. It is unclear whether Beck lives at the home where the weapons were found. She could not be reached for comment. Saenz has been a licensed general building contractor since 1994 and operates a business in San Diego called Gerry Saenz and Associates, according to public records.

Perrette returns in comedy

D-Day memories fade as witnesses die AP

One more funeral, one less witness to the world’s worst war. Bernard Dargols lived almost long enough to join the celebrations next month marking 75 years since the D-Day, 75 years since he waded onto Omaha Beach as an American soldier to help liberate France from the Nazis who persecuted his Jewish family. Just shy of his 99th birthday, Dargols died last week. To the strains of his beloved American jazz, he was laid to rest at France’s most famous cemetery, Pere Lachaise. An ever-smaller number of veterans will stand on Normandy’s shores on June 6 for D-Day’s 75th anniversary. Many will salute fallen comrades from their wheelchairs. As each year passes, more firsthand history is lost. Four weeks from now, other world leaders will pay homage to the more than 2 million Allied forces involved in the D-Day operation on June 6, 1944, and the ensuing battle for Normandy that helped pave the way for Hitler’s defeat. Dargols outlived most of them, and knew the importance of sustaining their memory. “I’m convinced that we have to talk about the war to children, so that they understand how much they need to preserve the peace,” he wrote in a 2012 memoir. Until the end, Dargols battled

When he’s not touring the world with Adam Lambert, helping to create Oscarwinning movies, or exploring the cosmos, Queen guitarist Brian May has another passion: saving hedgehogs. “It does feel great,” May told Channel 5 show Saving Britain’s Hedgehogs, which features the conservation work carried out at the Amazing Grace rescue centre on his estate in Surrey, England, where sickly hogs are rehabilitated and released back into the wild. “The actual hands-on thing of saving animals is so rewarding and so inspiring,” adds May. “It’s brought me all kinds of wonderful joys that I never even dreamed of.”

Bernard Dargols complacency, intolerance and Holocaust deniers who claim that D-Day was “just a movie.” In recent years, “seeing any type of violence, of anti-Semitism and racism, either in France in Europe or in the US” really upset him, granddaughter Caroline Jolivet said. Normandy schoolteachers, veterans’ families and military memorials are labouring against time to record survivors’ stories for posterity. In history’s biggest amphibious invasion, on that fateful June 6, some 160,000 Allied forces came ashore to launch Operation Overlord to wrest Normandy from Nazi control. More than 4000 Allied forces were killed on that day alone. Nearly half a million people were killed on both sides by the time the Allies liberated Paris in August 1944. It’s unclear exactly how many D-Day veterans are alive today. The survivors are now in their 90s or 100s. Every day, the names of the

departed accumulate, tweeted by veterans groups, published in local newspapers. Dargols might have made it to Normandy this year. It meant a lot to him. His story is both unusual and emblematic: Born in France, he left Paris in 1938 for New York to learn his father’s sewing machine trade. He watched from afar, sickened, as the Nazis occupied his homeland. His Jewish relatives were sent to camps, or fled in fear. Determined to fight back but sceptical of French General Charles de Gaulle’s resistance force, he joined the US Army instead. With the 2nd Infantry Division, Dargols sailed from Britain on June 5 and only made it to Normandy on June 8, after three interminable days on choppy seas. The road he took inland from Omaha Beach now carries his name. The battle to wrest Normandy from the Nazis took longer than the Allies thought, but for Dargols the prize at the end was invaluable. When he made it to Paris, he went to his childhood apartment and found his mother – unexpectedly alive. For four decades, he didn’t talk much about the war. But as more and more survivors died, and at his granddaughter’s urging, he realised the importance of speaking out and sharing his stories with schools and journalists. Friends and family remem-

bered him as shy but courageous, a lover of oysters and pastrami sandwiches, known for his mischievous smile. Jolivet, his granddaughter, told AP of his yearning for leaders who “bring people together, instead of divide them”. Dargols would have had a clear message for the D-Day anniversary, she said: “Never take democracy for granted. Dictatorship is always a bad solution. Violence is always a bad solution. Keep democracy alive. Fight for democracy, for freedom, for peace.” The cultural director at Normandy’s World War II memorial in Caen, Isabelle Bournier, frets about this fading message, as she watches schoolchildren cycle through her museum every day. “The parents and grandparents of 13-year-olds today didn’t experience the war, so the family stories, the family history – where helmets are brought out, where we spoke about what it was like – has been lost,” she said. “They don’t know the names of the landing beaches,” she said. “Pupils spend less time studying World War Two than they did 30 years ago, and so the role of D-Day has been reduced.” Dargols himself worried about the day when all the veterans will be gone. “It could start again,” he wrote in his memoir. We must be vigilant, at all times.”

NCIS fan favourite Pauley Perrette is officially returning to CBS. Perrette’s comedy Broke has been picked up to series for the next TV season, TV Guide has learned. This is Perrette’s first series regular role since leaving NCIS last spring. The actress played forensic investigator Abby Sciuto for over 15 years on the popular procedural. Broke also stars Jane the Virgin’s Jaime Camil as a trust fund-dependent man who gets cut off by his father and must move his family in with his estranged sister-in-law (Perette). Natasha Leggero and Izzy Diaz round out the cast.

Morgan was hooked up to a TENS machine, a machine which uses electrical current and is primarily used to provide pain relief to mothers in labour. The TV presenter was live on the Good Morning Britain show when he experienced the pain of childbirth. The panel was discussing the topic of the birth of the Royal baby and Prince Harry’s reaction to childbirth. Morgan chimed in saying men too “suffer” during childbirth and seemed to hint that whatever suffering men might feel can be compared to the pain a woman goes through during labour and delivery.

B-52 bombers land in Qatar AP

The B-52 bombers ordered by the White House to deploy to the Persian Gulf to counter unspecified threats from Iran are beginning to arrive at a major American air base in Qatar. Images released by the US Air Force show B-52H Stratofortress bombers arriving at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar on Thursday. Others landed at an undisclosed location Wednesday. The Air Force identified the aircraft as coming from the 20th Bomb Squadron of Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana. Last weekend, the White House announced it would send the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group and the bombers to counter Tehran. Mid week, Iran announced it would begin backing away from its nuclear deal with world powers, a year after President Donald Trump pulled America from the accord.

French telco giant on trial over staff suicides AP The toll is shocking: 19 suicides, 12 suicide attempts and eight cases of serious depression among employees at France’s main telephone and internet company over three years. A long-awaited trial began this week in Paris accusing the telecom giant Orange and seven former or current managers of moral harassment and other charges. The company was called France Telecom at the time of the suicides. The case initially involved 39 employees with mental health problems, including the almost half who killed themselves. Another 126 people asked on Tuesday to join the case, saying they also were damaged by what they call a culture of unsustainable pressure as Orange was undergoing job cuts and restructuring a decade ago. Unions say France’s big companies haven’t learned any lessons from what happened at France Telecom, and about 200 activists demonstrated outside the courthouse to urge a conviction. The defendants include the for-

mer president of France Telecom, Didier Lombard, former human resources director Olivier Barberot and former deputy executive director Louis-Pierre Wenes. They spoke briefly one by one at the trial, which is the largest to date in France for moral harassment on a company-wide scale. The defendants are suspected of having “degraded work conditions of personnel that risked hurting their rights and dignity, altering the physical or mental health (of personnel), or compromising their professional future”. Four other officials are suspected of complicity in moral harassment. In France, moral harassment can be punished by a year in prison and a fine of 15,000 euros ($NZ25,420). Orange itself is also on trial, and the court could order the company to grant additional damages to each civil party in the case. An investigation into the wave of employee suicides between 2007 and 2010 was opened following a complaint from the Sud union. At the time, Lombard allegedly referred to the deaths as “the fashion”.

Lombard, who was replaced as France Telecom chief in 2010, has denied all the charges. He attributed the suicides, attempted suicides and cases of depression to “local difficulties with no links to each other” and no relation to the company’s job cuts at the time. The indictment lists the employees who took their lives or tried to, some on the job. Michel, 50, left a note about his decision to end his life on July 29, 2009, according to the prosecutor’s report. “I’m taking my life because of my work at France Telecom. It’s the only reason,” the note said. A month earlier, Christel, 37, made an apparent bid to kill herself in front of two superiors who told her hours earlier that she would be transferred. In March 2009, 52-year-old Herve was rescued by colleagues before attempting to take his life. Jean-Michel, a father of three children, was 53 when he took his life on July 2, 2008, while on the phone with two union delegates. France Telecom, once a stateowned monopoly, transformed into a private company in the

2000s. Lombard launched a restructuring plan aimed at shedding 22,000 jobs, but most employees were still considered civil servants and so were protected from layoffs. The indictment says that as it sought to reduce staff, the company imposed “excessive and intrusive control” on employees, assigned workers to demoralising tasks, failed to provide training, isolated staff and used “intimidation manoeuvres or threats and pay cuts”. Presiding Judge Cecile Louis-Loyant said the court “wants to understand why some employees killed themselves, and why others tried to do so”. She noted that prosecutors believe “the repetition of cases was enough to characterise moral harassment, but does not accuse the defendants of causing the suicides”. She said the prosecution “holds that the method of personnel management affected various employees with an increase of psychological-social risk”. The judges agreed to include the complaints of the 126 employees who asked to join the case in the case file.

In brief Coal free for a week Britain has gone a week without burning coal for electricity for the first time since the 19th Century. Power operator National Grid says coal hasn’t contributed to the United Kingdom’s electricity mix since the afternoon of May 1. The landmark was reached two years after Britain had its first coal-free day since the Industrial Revolution. Fintan Slye, director of National Grid Electricity System Operator, said that coal-free power would become the “new normal” as Britain generates more power from wind, solar and other renewable sources. The UK also relies heavily on natural gas and nuclear energy. The Government says Britain will eliminate coal from its power supply by 2025. It has set a deadline of 2050 to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions altogether. Environmentalists say that is not soon enough. – NZME

Launches were missiles A South Korean military official says the two projectiles North Korea flew across its country toward the sea on Thursday were evaluated as short-range missiles. The official said that the US and South Korean military share the assessment and are jointly analysing more details from the launch. North Korea’s state media showed leader Kim Jongun observing the firing of rocket artillery and what appeared to be a short-range ballistic missile soaring from a launch vehicle. The North’s second launch in five days was seen as a brushback pitch toward Washington over deadlocked nuclear negotiations. – AP

Manning released Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning was released from a northern Virginia jail Thursday after a two-month stay for refusing to testify to a grand jury. Manning spent 62 days at the Alexandria Detention Centre on civil contempt charges after she refused to answer questions to a federal grand jury investigating WikiLeaks. Her lawyers fear her freedom may be short-lived, though. She was released only because the grand jury’s term expired. Before she left the jail, she received another subpoena demanding her testimony on May 16 to a new grand jury. – AP

aking his first national team after 20 years of trying saw indoor bowler Michael Lawson named Mid Canterbury’s sportsperson of the year last night. Lawson’s efforts on the mat took out the title of senior sportsperson of the year, while Methven triathlete Brea Roderick was named junior sportsperson of the year. Lawson was up against equestrienne Lucinda Askin, multisporter Matthew Clough, fullbore target shooter Megan Snowden and cricketer Richard Turpie in the senior sportsperson category, and it wasn’t an easy job for the judging panel picking a winner. But Lawson – whose nomination described him as being “indoor bowls in the Ashburton District” – came out on top thanks

Ashburton’s best sportspeople for the past 12 months were crowned at the annual Mid Canterbury Sports Awards last night. Guardian staff take a look at the winners. to his best ever season rolling up. It was a season which saw him take a national title, which was only the third won by an Ashburton bowler during the 64 years the indoor bowls nationals had existed. It was also a season where he captained the South Island team, which he had represented for the past 20 years, and won an inter-island medal for his fours team’s victory over the North Island. It was those performances which – after several disappointing omissions over the years –

finally led to his selection into the Mat Blacks, the national indoor bowls team, for a trans-Tasman clash with Australia, which is being held in Invercargill later this month. As if his performances on the mat weren’t enough, Lawson achieved all he did while also putting a lot into the sport off the mat. He was the president of Ashburton Indoor Bowls and the driving force behind a successful nationals event, which was held at Ashburton’s EA Networks Centre,

and sits on the executive of New Zealand Indoor Bowls, of which he is the vice president. For Mid Canterbury’s junior sportsperson of the year, Brea Roderick, it was her efforts on the world triathlon stage which saw her come out on top from the almost 20 nominations received for that category. In October Roderick travelled to Argentina for the World Youth Olympics where she came ninth in the individual race and won silver in the mixed team relay. She also raced at the ITU World

Championships on the Gold Coast and came 39th, and in the Australian Triathlon Junior Series she took a first, a third and a fourth. So far this year she’s won the New Zealand off-road triathlon championships, come fourth in the ITU Oceania Junior (under-19) Championships and won the Canterbury Secondary Schools’ Triathlon. She was unable to defend her South Island secondary schools’ title this year, as she was competing in the Oceania champion-

ships that same weekend. At the other end of the spectrum, the sports awards’ masters category was dominated by one sport this year, with all five entries coming from indoor bowls. Mark Sheard was crowned the winner for his efforts at the indoor bowls nationals in Ashburton, where he was named payer of the tournament in the masters grade after winning the masters singles. He followed that up by skipping the triples to a win and was also a beaten semi-finalist in the pairs and made it to the quarter-finals in the fours. When it came to finding our top teams, in the senior category it was another win for indoor bowls, with the Ashburton Indoor Bowls Representative team taking it out. The indoor bowls team almost had a perfect season. They played

in 11 rep fixtures and won nine of them and came third in the natoinal final of the highest awarded trophy in the sport – the Welsh Trophy. To even get there, they had to win the Paterson Trophy, which was contested between Mid Canterbury, Canterbury, Nelson, Golden Bay, West Coast and Marlborough. Mid Canterbury won it with 124.5 points, with Canterbury the next best on 108. The junior team title went to Ashburton College’s Smallbore Rifle Shooting Team – a team that has been unbeaten since its formation in 2016. In the past year they’ve won the Target Shooting New Zealand postal challenge, the New Zealand Secondary Schools’ postal match and the inter-island secondary schools’ shooting competition.

When it came to the top all-rounders, there was a boys’ prize and a girls’ prize, with the boys’ prize going to Taonga Mbambo for his efforts in cross-country and athletics, while the girls’ prize went to Emma Stagg for rowing, netball and athletics. Stagg was part of Ashburton College’s under-18 coxed quad which was fourth at the Maadi Cup and second at the South Islands, as well as a member of Ashburton College’s senior A netball team. She also took two second placings in the long jump and triple jump at the Aoraki secondary schools’ athletics. Mbambo was nominated for both cross-country and track and field, after a year during which he made both the New Zealand Secondary Schools’ Cross

Country Team and the Athletics New Zealand IAAF World Cross Country Team. At the Australia/Oceania Cross Country Championships he was 12th as an individual and part of the third-placed team, and in the School Sports Australia cross-country relay he was third. When it came to coaching, Celtic under-18 rugby coach Mati Morrison was named Mid Canterbury’s coach of the year. Morrison was co-coach of the young Celtic side, along with Brentton Donaldson, and the team was unbeaten in 2018 and took out the combined Mid Canterbury/Ellesmere competition, as well as the Mid Canterbury competition. The top official award went to Summer Anderson from basketball, who refereed from local level right through to South Island,

and has been helping to mentor young referees. Volunteers were also recognised, with this year’s volunteer awards going to Chris Batt (squash), Sandy Hogg (swimming), Peter Leonard (tennis), Brian Kerr (basketball), Patrick Patea (softball), Andrea Scammell (swimming), Anne Tait (swimming), Madison Trusler-Clar (basketball) and Penny Tuanui (softball). The athlete with a disability award went to Delta Taeauga for athletics. Delta competed at the Aoraki Athletics were he won the open boys’ discus and shotput. At the Special Olympics Delta was first in the mini javelin with a throw of 20.6 metres – which was enough to see him win by almost eight metres – while he also won the men’s 100m.

OUR VIEW

A shout out to all the mums ... T

omorrow’s all about the special ladies in our lives, mums. Not that we should have to outline a special day to recognise their contribution to our lives, but it’s nice that we do have one. Everyone’s got a mum, in one way or another, funnily enough. They come in all shapes and sizes, all different types of personalities and are generally the heart of a family circle. But I don’t need to tell anyone that. So, I’m going to talk about the mothers in my life – the special ladies who make life that much better for me. My mum, like everyone would say, is the best mum there is.

She’s been my rock for more than three decades, one of the constant figures in my life who has always stood by my side and accepted me for who I am. I’ve got really fond memories of growing up and spending time with Mum, she always put my brother, sister and myself before anything else and did everything that she, and dad, could do to ensure that we had the best possible childhood.

And for that, I’m forever grateful. Tomorrow, I won’t make a big deal about Mother’s Day to her, that’s not really her cup of tea. Instead it will probably be a quick hug and a chance to say thanks and then we’ll carry on with things. The second special mum in my life, is Mum’s mum, my grandmother. She’s an incredible lady who over the years has been a wonderful part of our family and continues to take great pride in what we all achieve as grandchildren. Like Mum, she’s stood by all of us through thick and thin, and any chance to spend time with her is pretty special.

Gifts and recognition aren’t really that important to her anymore. It’s time that makes her happy and it’s time that I know all of us grandchildren will try to give her when we can. The third, but certainly not least, mum in life for me is the mum to my two amazing children. Her selflessness and dedication to parenting our two babies as they grow from youngsters is incredible and her constant willingness to put those two treasures before everything else in life is remarkable. And I’m forever grateful for the opportunities she is giving them. I know this a little more personal than what you’d nor-

mally see in this space on most occasions, but mums are really special to us all and they deserve that recognition that perhaps we don’t give them enough. Everyone will treat tomorrow a little differently to the person next to them, but you can guarantee that everyone who is lucky enough to still be able to, will go that little bit further out of their way to make sure they let those special ladies in their life know just how special they are. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there. You’re all rock stars and whether it’s marked with breakfast in bed or a bit of a lie in or something as simple as an unexpected hug from a loved one, we hope it’s an awesome day.

In 1647, Peter Stuyvesant arrived in New Amsterdam to become governor of New Netherland. In 1858, Minnesota became the 32nd state of the Union. In 1943, during World War Two, US forces landed on the Aleutian island of Attu, which was held by the Japanese; the Americans took the island 19 days later. In 1945, New Zealand’s mostdecorated soldier, Charles Upham, received the first of his two Victoria Crosses – for outstanding gallantry and leadership during the Battle of Crete in 1941 – from King George VI at Buckingham Palace. In 1953, a tornado devastated Waco, Texas, claiming 114 lives. In 1998, India set off three underground atomic blasts, its first nuclear tests in 24 years.

Will ‘Slushiegate’ win over some voters? W

ho would have thought it? Simon Bridges’ break-out topic – the one where he displays virtually uncontrollable mongrel and shouts down any other MP who has the temerity to attempt to tame him – is slushies. Yes, those “harmless” sugary, cold drinks we have all been consuming with relish, fervour and frequency during the long, hot summer just past. Despite their innocuous appearance these alluring thirst-quenchers are in, in fact, the product of a high tech and, therefore, expensive dispenser. What’s more the dispensers cost $6000 a go. And that is what (on May 3) led to the leader of the opposition’s outburst of near inflammable anger (albeit self-generated) by which he hoped, at the very least, to singe the eyebrows of his political tormentors opposite. The “slushies”, roared the current, crazed leader of the National Party, were bought and paid for by the taxpayer for the benefit of the prisoners in our jails and the hard-working persons who guard and look after them. It has been a gesture to try to ease tensions between the two sides in the face of climate change-induced, extreme heat. But at what colossal expense? A plume of black smoke rises above the enraged politician. Bridges castigates the cost of these slushies – with spittle flying in all directions, especially towards Simon’s unfortunate deputy, the recently re-worked and now glamorous, Paula Bennett, who takes appropriate cover, though pretends not to notice. She may well be deeply troubled by this alarmingly-sustained explosion of rage, but nevertheless has to look as if she agrees with every word as Bridges continues to dribble over the high dudgeon he feels regarding the iniquity of these state-of-theart inventions being used for the benefit of such people. Around the chamber, a dumbfounded silence of astonishment prevails until the National leader eventually subsides into his merino-covered seat, still spitting and sweating. It has been a performance of great bravura and seeming sincerity which should, surely, give him the bump in the polls he

so desperately needs if only to keep the sinister approach of the not-too-subtle figure of Judith Collins at bay. Mrs C is said to want Simon’s job as a first stepping stone to taking over the country and after that, it is thought, the world. So one can understand the desperate lengths to which Bridges is going to avoid the career-ending clutches of The Crusher. It is, after all, well-known the lady takes no prisoners. This mind-blowing incident is quickly described by the marauding media as, “Simon coming out swinging” which, no doubt, was the impression the leader of the opposition wished to create. However, only days after the drama of the events described above comes the coup for which Simon has been earnestly seeking. Yes, he is expelled from the chamber, aka “thrown out of the House”, an accolade for which he has been striving for some years. His offence (a first for Parliament) making “barnyard noises”. Whether he was mooing, snuffling, snorting or bleating, was not immediately made clear; what mattered to Simon was that he has now joined those heroic characters from the past to have suffered the fate of parliamentary expulsion, thereby emphasising his political balls and brooding presence. When you think about the man who actually awarded Simon his well-

earned spurs, you realise it was from the hands of one of the most frequently expelled MPs in our history, the serial-disturber, Trevor Mallard himself – these days, laughingly promoted to the role of Speaker. Only Winston Peters could have given him a run for his money. After all, Mallard and Peters have spent more of their careers immediately outside the debating chamber than in it. And what do we learn from these less-than-edifying shenanigans? Obviously, that Bridges feels a display of aggressive fervour will sit well with voters, see off the pesky, Crusher Collins and, finally and triumphantly, do the same with Jacinda Ardern, as she shows herself to be more and more a figurehead than a genuine leader of men and women. It’s a tall order but Simon still sees himself as capable of reaching the top of the greasy

Marinated roast lamb with fresh mint topping Serves 6-8 Lamb 1 Quality Mark whole lamb leg, bone in 1 bag French (or pickling) onions, peeled 2C chicken stock (for the gravy) 1/4 C flour (for the gravy) Marinade 5 cloves garlic, crushed 2T dijon mustard 3 anchovy fillets, finely chopped 1/2 C fresh rosemary, finely chopped 2T dried marjoram 2T lemon zest 2T butter, softened 2T lemon juice 3T oil Fresh mint topping 3/4 C crème fraiche 1 bunch or 25g packet fresh mint leaves, very finely chopped 1 bunch fresh tarragon, very finely chopped (optional) 1 clove garlic, crushed 1T oil 1T white wine vinegar Garnish 2 spring onions (green ends only), cut into very thin strips approx. 8cm long 1 bunch fresh mint leaves Preparation Place the lamb leg fat-side up on a clean chopping board and pat dry with a paper towel. Using a sharp knife, make a series of shallow cuts into the lamb, a few centimetres apart. Combine the marinade ingredients together and spread over the lamb, rubbing it into the cuts. Wrap the lamb in cling film and refrigerate, preferably overnight or for at least 2 hours. Lamb: Remove the marinated

lamb from the fridge 30 minutes before cooking. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the lamb in a roasting dish fat side up and season. Transfer to the oven and bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes per 500g for medium. Baste occasionally. With 1 hour remaining, add the onions to the roasting dish. Turn them over once while cooking. Remove from the oven, transfer the lamb and onions to a warm plate and cover loosely with foil. Leave to rest for 20-30 minutes. Fresh mint topping: Combine all ingredients in a food processor or mortar and pestle and mix well. Spring onion and mint garnish: Submerge sliced spring onions in a bowl filled with lots of ice and water to make them curl up. Add the mint leaves. Leave in the fridge covered, for at least an hour. Drain and rest on paper towels.

Gravy: To make a rich gravy, discard the fat from the lamb roasting dish, leaving the meat juices. Combine the flour with 1/2 cup water and add to the roasting dish, with remaining meat juices, on the stovetop over a medium heat. Add chicken stock, stirring all the time with a wooden spoon, for about 5-10 minutes until thickened. Make sure you scrape all the caramelised meat juices and onion off the bottom to add flavour. To serve: Place the rested lamb on a platter or board and spread with the fresh mint topping. Garnish with the spring onions and mint. Arrange the onions around the lamb. Serve with the gravy, roast potatoes and your choice of a salad or vegetables. Recipe courtesy of Beef + Lamb New Zealand www.recipes.co.nz

Last chance to nab finals spots By Erin Tasker

erin.t@theguardian.co.nz

When Southern take to the field against Kaiapoi in today’s final round of the combined country rugby competition, it’s likely to be in front of one of the biggest crowds they’ve seen in some time. That’s because it’s a big weekend for the Southern Rugby Club. It’s their jubilee weekend and players and supporters from the club’s past 25 years have made their way to Hinds for a weekend of celebrations. Everything going to plan, tonight’s celebrations will be extra special because Southern should have beaten Kaiapoi and qualified for the Luisetti Seeds Cup competition’s playoffs, and in many eyes could be one of the favourites to take the whole thing out. But Southern coach Andrew Carr isn’t getting too far ahead of himself. He knows all too well that Kaiapoi can be a sticky sort of opposition and he’s not taking anything for granted. Carr said Southern are a team that have been there or thereabouts in recent seasons when it comes to making the finals, but all too often they’ve slipped up late and missed out. So this year they’ve been determined to not just be there, but well and truly earn their spot, and not have to rely on other results to go their way. In a shorter season than in the past, teams needed to get points on the board early and Southern did just that. This year’s three-pool format will see the top two teams from each pool go through to the quarter-finals. They will be joined by the two next best teams from a combined points table, who will be given wildcard spots. Heading into today’s final round, Southern are joint on points at the top of pool A along with Darfield. Darfield are actually unbeaten, having handed Southern their only loss so far this season, but Southern have six bo-

nus points to date compared to Darfield’s three. On form, Southern and Darfield should both win today and take those two top spots, but Darfield’s opposition today are defending champions Waihora, a side sitting in third in pool A. If Waihora beat Darfield with a bonus point and Southern lost, Waihora could leapfrog both into top spot, leaving Southern and Darfield to battle it out for that second spot. Either way though, you’d have to expect Southern or

Darfield – if either did lose today – to take one of the wildcards. Glenmark-Cheviot top pool B heading into the final round, while Springston are second and Southbridge third. Rakaia are fourth and mathematically may still have a chance of nabbing one of the wildcards if they can beat Southbridge with a bonus point at Southbridge today, and other results go their way. Mid Canterbury’s other team in pool B, Methven, are well out of play-off contention heading into

their match against Ohoka, in Methven, today. But they’ve still got plenty to play for with the Mid Canterbury Watters Cup competition just around the corner, and two stalwarts – Simon Fleetwood and James McLeod – set to start in their 100th matches today on what is also Methven’s country day. In pool C, Celtic are in a similar position to Rakaia. They’re fourth in their pool and a bonus point win today, along with other results falling their way, could push

them into a wildcard position. But their opposition today is Lincoln, at Lincoln, and Lincoln are the team at the top of pool C having lost just one of their six games so far this season. Mid Canterbury’s remaining team, Hampstead, are in pool A with Southern and are one of the teams without a shot of making the play-offs with just one win on the board so far. Today they’re on the road to Hornby for their final round-robin game.

No contact sport for under-12s By Dylan Cleaver NZME

No children should be playing contact sport before the age of 12, say some of the world’s leading experts on head injuries in sport. The group of Boston scientists told the Herald that the younger you started sports like rugby and American football, the greater your chances of suffering degenerative brain diseases. Dr Bob Cantu, the “Godfather of Concussion”, has also discouraged football clubs from allowing heading the ball in under-12s. In a series of exclusive interviews, the scientists at Boston University’s Alzheimer’s Disease Center team showed experiments which found mice subjected to the same forces as tackle football suffered repeated violent wobbles to the head, which were imperceptible to the naked eye. Dr Lee Goldstein said these repeated ordinary hits – not the more high-profile but rarer concussions which grabbed the headlines – were the reason for the startling finding of his colleague Dr Ann McKee in 2017 that 110 out of 111 brains of former US National Football League players showed signs of the incurable brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). McKee said even allowing for the bias of self selection by families who donated the footballers’ brains, the rate of serious brain disease among NFL players and college players was far above the general population. “You can split hairs, you can use the studies to say we’re blowing this out of proportion but the average 7-year-old knows this is real.” Cantu said tackling or heading might be too much for the brain development of children under 12. He said a key factor in developing CTE was not the severity of the trauma but “the total amount of hits you took and when you started taking them”. “If you started taking them before the age of 12 that increases your risk,” he said. “What we can best correlate the risk of CTE with, is total number of hits to the head you took over the period of life you were taking hits to the head.” Cantu said impacts received when young came at a greater price than those as an adult, regardless of force, and is adamant there should not be any tackle codes, including rugby, until high school. “Your neck is weak and your brain isn’t myelinated and it’s easier to disrupt brain fibres,” he said. His views are echoed by McKee, the neuropathologist who made last year’s Time Most Influential People list.

Players compete in a Mid Canterbury junior rugby match recently.

McKee believes the professionalisation of sport has encouraged parents to allow or even encourage their children into dangerous practices. “We’re experiencing a vortex where all these things are making the disease [CTE] worse. We’re seeing if you start playing tackle football before 12 as opposed to after 12, and you’re an NFL player, you’ll have more structural damages in your nervous system – regardless or not as to whether you have CTE... You’ll also have greater cognitive difficulties and executive dysfunction later in life.” McKee said there was ample evidence that those that started American football earlier were less resilient to the effects of CTE and she expects the same in rugby, highlighting that one of the “most damaged” brains she had worked with was former Australian player Barry “Tizza” Taylor. While rugby and American football have important technical distinctions, and most agree that the latter is more dangerous due to the number of impacts on every single play, the fact that collisions are an integral part of the sport connects them.

New Zealand Rugby head of medical Ian Murphy said there was still much to learn about the risk-reward of contact youth sport and said his organisation would continue to offer tackle rugby to children, with a continuing onus on technique. Murphy said New Zealand Rugby has made huge strides in making its stakeholders increasingly aware of the risks involved with concussion and that has led to, anecdotally at least, a culture shift in the game. He said that ACC data suggests that there are very few recorded rugby injuries in the 7-12 age bracket. If injuries at a young age are a harbinger for worse to follow, Murphy said, then some comfort should be taken in the low levels. “You’re seeing an emerging discussion around non-contact forms of contact sports at younger ages. That’s emerging slowly. It’s arguably not a bad thing but I think there’ll always be a group that likes to play the contact form of games,” Murphy said. “There are some people who think, ‘She’ll be right, no worries’, and there’s a group that believes in [no contact sport] under 12. Our current view, and my current view,

PHOTO ASHBURTON GUARDIAN

is somewhere in there lies the right thing to do. “New Zealand Rugby’s position is contact is going to take place in the game through the grades if you wish to play that form of the game.” Cantu added that while the numbers of CTE afflictions in NFL players were eye-popping, he didn’t believe rugby would hit comparable levels. “I don’t think statistically it will be where boxing or [American] football is, or has been. But unquestionably it’s going to be in a high-risk group.” New Zealand under-17 assistant coach Sam Wilkinson, who runs the Melville football academy in Hamilton said no parents had expressed “huge concerns” about their kids heading the ball and that modern-day parents were never shy about expressing opinions. “In youth football you don’t see massive amounts of heading and in training you use only age-specific football sizes and we’re mindful of the quantities,” Wilkinson said. * This article was made possible through an nib health scholarship.

Ko looks for positives as inconsistent results continue Lydia Ko burst onto the international golfing scene in 2012, claiming the New South Wales Open title at 14-years-old to become the youngest player to ever win a professional tour event. Turning professional in late 2013, it wasn’t long before Ko was world No.1 and winning tournaments. It was a stunning start to her career. Now, after a few years at the top, Ko has struggled to find the consistency and stroke that took her to the top early in her career. “A lot of things came to me that I didn’t really expect. The things

that I’d dreamt of and more happened,” Ko told Radio Sport’s Matt Brown. “But because of those things and now things aren’t going so great, I get compared to that. One player told me and I think it kind of came to me, that I’m never going to be the same. “I might play as well as I did then or better or not as good, but I’m never going to be the same. Through every experience you change and you learn.” After finishing the 2018 season ranked 14th in the world, her lowest since turning professional, Ko

made a quality start to 2019 and found herself in contention in a number of tournaments. However her recent form has seen her struggle, particularly on the greens. While Ko hasn’t been able to find her form, the level of opponent has also increased since she turned professional and tournament wins are much harder to come by. She said where three good rounds and an average one used to put you in contention, now if you didn’t have four really good rounds at a tournament you

wouldn’t have a chance to win it. “A combination of things were working good at the start. I played very consistent and I think the last few weeks I’ve been struggling to get the ball in the hole and on the green,” she said. “If I had a few less putts everyday I’d definitely be further up the leaderboard, but you sometimes have these lulls. “I’m trying to take the positives out of something that wasn’t necessarily that great.” At last week’s LPGA Mediheal Championship in California, Ko finished six over par in a tie for

61st. It came on the heals of a tie for 42nd at the Hugel-Air Premia LA Open at the end of April, and a tie for 44th at the Ana Inspiration tournament in early April. Having recently parted ways with swing coach Ted Oh, Ko said she recently sought the opinions of a few other coaches but was in no hurry to find another caddy. It’s quite a hard time of the year to be doing that…I was able to see some coaches just for their opinions on things so I feel like I’ve got plenty of things to work on. “I just have to be positive and stay patient.”

Celtic A’s winning run continues By Erin Tasker

erin.t@theguardian.co.nz

Celtic A kept their winning run going in the second game of the Mid Canterbury Netball premier competition on Thursday night, but for the second week running they didn’t have it all their own way. Hampstead A were Celtic A’s round two opposition and the girls in the blue and gold dresses well and truly stuck with the defending champion Celtic A side, but the girls in green eventually got away and finished with a 3024 win. Celtic A went through 2018 unbeaten and while they’ve started 2019 with wins over both Methven A and Hampstead A, both teams have stuck with the Celts early, giving many hope that maybe they can be beaten in 2019. But, the Angela Leadley-coached Celtic A side won’t be letting their unbeaten run go without a fight. Mt Somers will be the next team in their way and they’ll need to show a big improvement if they’re to stick with Celtic, after going down in both of their first two matches of the season. They took on Methven A on Thursday night and went down 36-22, but it wasn’t as one-sided as the score indicated. Methven A led 17-12 at half time and Mt Somers did manage to pull a couple of goals back, but then Methven A stepped things up a notch. Methven A had their star shoot-

er Leanne Clemens on the bench in the first half and brought her on at half time, and Methven’s lead gradually extended out to what was, in the end, a pretty good victory. Coach Maree Firth said Methven A’s combinations were still a work in progress, and they tried a few new things out against Mt Somers. “A couple of things worked and a couple of things didn’t,” she said. “Obviously Mt Somers are a strong team with experienced heads and we knew that, so we were never going to take them lightly.” Mt Somers player/coach Kate Oliver said it was another tough night at the office for her side. They also went down to Ashburton College A in round one. “I think our defence was very good, but I think we just didn’t release the ball quick enough through the court,” Oliver said. “We just need to play like we know in our heads we can.” The premier one game of the second round pitted Celtic B against an Ashburton College side that looked to be in good early season form. Celtic B managed just two goals in the first quarter, down 10-2 at the first break, and from there it was always going to be an uphill battle, and College A came out on top 41-16. In premier two action, Southern A got their second win on the board with a 25-19 win over

At the end of round one the top team in premier two will be

A late start to the season meant a catch up round had to fit in somewhere so it will be played on the Tuesday, meaning the last two games of round one would all be played in the space of a couple of days.

Up and down week Parkes is Welsh hero for College ballers The Ashburton College senior boys’ basketball side managed to turn a negative one night into a positive the following this week in local basketball action. Playing in the Division One Thomson Trophy in Christchurch on Tuesday night, the College boys were beaten by a strong Shirley Boys’ High School side as they continue their step up from division two into the big league. While beaten, the side was far from disgraced with a final scoreline of 78-55. Quinn Ritchie led the charge for the Ashburton side with 27 points and formed strong combinations with both Sam Pearce and Thomas Patterson. While disappointed to lose the match, it did serve as a good reminder of the level of competition they are now facing and there was a real positive in the way they fought back after a slow start. After that disappointment though, they managed to turn things around on Wednesday night in the local men’s compe-

tition with a good win over Star Farmers Corner. Again Ritchie shone, with 33 points, while Pearce was strong with 18 points for the match. For Star, Xavier Bartlett was the leading scorer with a solid 20 points. In Wednesday night’s other match, Gannets grabbed a strong victory over a depleted Nomads side who were without three of their regular starters. After a slow first quarter things picked up in the second, third and fourth with the Gannets proving too slick winning the match 8453. The presence of the seven-foot Jason Greig was a big assist to the Gannets. He grabbed a number of rebounds, blocked shots and scored 24 points for his effort. Nick Fechney had a good night too with 20 points, including four from three point range. For the Nomads, Mikal Johnson, Jamie Smitheram, Sam Moore and Matthew Tait all reached double figures.

Hadleigh Parkes is an unHadleigh Parkes likely rugby hero. A hero he is, though, through Welsh eyes. These days Parkes is a Six Nations grand slam champion; a rock in Warren Gatland’s midfield. In recent weeks he has been welcomed to the National Assembly, and toasted beers with Prince William in the Principality Stadium changing rooms. At supermarkets and on streets, Parkes is a local celebrity. It wasn’t always this way, though. Far from it. In New Zealand rugby circles Parkes was often deemed surplus. Maybe this is a case of Parkes suiting northern hemisphere rugby more. Whatever the explanation, he has certainly found a happy home. Five years on from his departure and he is, remarkably, much the same bloke who left New Zealand with no fanfare. Recent fame has done nothing to inflate the perception of his own ability, either. “I’m not sure if you can write this,” Parkes says. “But I’m still a white battler to be honest. “In New Zealand you put a lot of pressure on yourself and over here I thought ‘bugger it I’m just going to enjoy it’. And I have. “I don’t think I’ve changed that much as a play-

er other than working hard and having a couple of really good coaches who have helped out.” Throughout his New Zealand career Parkes scrapped for everything – struggling even to make the Super Rugby grade at times. He first emerged alongside Aaron Cruden and Andre Taylor in the Palmerston North Boys’ High first XV, progressing through the Hurricanes and New Zealand schools ranks. After those accolades, Parkes became something of a journeyman. He bounced from Manawatu to captain Auckland at one stage. He shuffled between the Blues and Hurricanes – a team he supported from the moment Bull Allen led them out for the first Super Ruby match in Palmerston North. But such was his New Zealand rugby status, Parkes took a punt on the Port Elizabeth-based Southern Kings during their inaugural Super Rugby season under Matt Sexton and Crusaders assistant Brad Mooar. At a time when Ma’a Nonu and Sonny Bill Williams set the bar, Parkes didn’t fit the desired second five-eighth mould, to the point he also played wing and fullback.

MCU aim to keep on winning They’re at the top of the Mainland Football division one table and that’s where Mid Canterbury United hope to still be when they return from Christchurch this afternoon. Mid Canterbury United are off to Ilam Fields to take on Universities AFC Gators today and they hope their unbeaten run will continue. So far, in their first season in division one after being promoted from division two, Mid Canterbury United have won four out of their five games, with the other result being a draw. That means that the unbeaten record which took them to the division two title last year, remains intact, and coach Marty Fitzgerald continues to be a happy man. Also happy, are the players that make up Mid Canterbury United’s division six team. They’re also top of the table after five games, with five wins to their names. Today they are off to Christchurch to play the Christchurch United Presidents – a side undefeated since dropping down from division three a couple of weeks into the season – while Methven FC’s side in the same division are home to the Universities AFC Burgundy Beavers this afternoon at 2.30pm. Methven FC’s main team in division three faces a road trip today, with their destination being Foster Park in Rolleston, where they will take on Selwyn United FC’s division three side. For the district’s younger sides, an away trip to play Nomads United AFC 13s awaits Mid Canterbury United’s 13th grade side today, while Methven FC’s 14th grade team has the bye. In the women’s division one, Mid Canterbury United Phat Ducks are at home tomorrow against Halswell United, at the Ashburton Domain at 10.30am. It’s almost a top of the table clash, with the Mid Canterbury women currently third with two wins and two losses, and the Halswell side top of the table with three wins and a draw so far this season.

Youngsters give gymnastics a go The Ashburton College gymnasium was a popular place to be on Thursday afternoon. The Ashburton Gymnastics Club calls the gym home, and it hosted an open day aimed at giving potential newcomers a chance to have a go on some of the club’s apparatus and see if the sport might be for them.

■■HOCKEY

■■RUGBY LEAGUE

Cambridge tough test Chevs on Mid Canterbury’s two senior hockey sides are in Ashburton today for their latest matches of their Mid/South Canterbury combined competitions. For Wakanui, the match awaiting them at the Ashburton hockey turf today is a top of the table one, with Cambridge making their way to town for what’s likely to be a tough match between two of the competition’s form sides in recent seasons. Both teams have played just two games so far this season, with both having had they

bye, and although there are two teams in there that have played an extra game, Wakanui and Cambridge are one and two on the table. Wakanui and Cambridge both won their opening two games of the season, but Wakanui are at the top of the table with an extra bonus point. In the senior women’s competition, Hampstead had the bye last weekend, following on from a surprise loss to Timaru Girls’ High School the week prior.

Today they’re also at home to Cambridge and it’s likely to be another tight tussle between two traditionally strong sides, both of which are currently mid-table. The Hampstead women’s match will take to the turf at 1pm, followed by the Wakanui men at 2.40pm. Mid Canterbury’s Opuke-Hakatere women’s second division side is also at home this weekend. They’re set to play Temuka in Ashburton at 1.40pm tomorrow.

Tough to find solution to Warriors’ woes Roger Tuivasa-Sheck admits he is feeling the pinch. The Warriors’ skipper remains as upbeat as ever, but the weight on his shoulders has been immense in 2019. As well as trying to maintain his own remarkably high standards, he has been searching everywhere for ways to inspire his team, to find the extra edge that can convert them from nearly men to contenders. He’s still a relative captaincy novice – 53 NRL games as skip-

per – but has a greater burden than most, with the club having to find ways to lessen the load. ”It has had its ups and downs,” said Tuivasa-Sheck, ahead of today’s NRL Magic Round clash with the Dragons. “Sometimes I face it and I get a lot of joy seeing other players face it with me and we all can grow. It’s the challenge, it’s going to be tough and I knew what I was signing up for.” The last two months have probably been Tuivasa-Sheck’s

toughest period since he was anointed figurehead of the club. The 2017 season was tough – especially for a 23-year-old as a new skipper – but there wasn’t the same expectation around the team, and he had former captains Simon Mannering and Ryan Hoffman to lean on. After the historic 2018 finals run, the Warriors were expected to improve, or at least consolidate on that campaign this year. So far it has been neither, with the equal worst start to a season

after eight games. Tuivasa-Sheck has been carrying that weight. With the departure of Shaun Johnson, the Otahuhu College product is the main X factor player on attack. As well as being the leader on and off the field, the 25-year-old also has a new play making responsibility, as well as his intense game day work load. He’s responded, with four tries, four try assists, eight line breaks, 39 tackle busts and 160 running metres per game.

their way

In round one of the Canterbury Rugby League division one competition, the Ashburton Barbarians were beaten by the Burnham Chevaliers. Today, they get a chance for revenge when the season’s second round kicks off with the defending champion Chevaliers making the trip from Burnham to Ashburton to play the Barbarians for the second time this season. The 2019 draw actually has the Barbarians playing the Chevaliers four times – the only team they will play four times – and the Ashburton side would love to pick up a win in game two, and continue that on for the rest of the season. That loss in round one to the Chevaliers, and one last weekend to Marist Saints which saw the Marist side top the table after round one, were the Barbarians’ only losses of the first round. In the past two weeks the Chevaliers have drawn, and had a team default to them, and at the end of round one both the Barbarians and the Chevaliers had three wins to their names, but the Chevaliers were in second spot courtesy of that draw. The Barbarians host the Chevaliers at Robilliard Park on Chalmers Avenue today, with kick off at 2pm.

■■WATERSKIING

Years of service recognised By Erin Tasker

erin.t@theguardian.co.nz

Janeen and Neil Donaldson were simply enjoying their night at the national waterskiing awards, when a couple of familiar words caught their attention. A citation was being read out for the winners of the Ken Hey Memorial Award for outstanding service to waterskiing in New Zealand. There was mention of ski schools and a new lake development, and it suddenly started sounding familiar. Janeen said that when a bach at Lake Camp was mentioned, she realised it was her and husband Neil they were talking about. For Neil, it was mention of the Clearwater Aquatic Club that made the penny drop. In recent years, the Donaldson name and waterskiing and Lake Hood have gone hand-in-hand, but for both Neil and Janeen their love for the sport started well before Lake Hood was even mooted. Both grew up in boating families. In fact they’re pretty sure that they would have skied on the same lake, at the same time, growing up, not knowing who the other was. Eventually their paths did cross though, and the rest is history. Neil laughed when he looked back to their wedding day – it was the same weekend as the Clearwater champs and he was keen for a ski in the morning, but Janeen put her foot down. She didn’t want her groom getting injured on the morning of their big day. Not long after they married, talk started of a man-made lake for Ashburton and the Donaldsons went on to become a big part of that process and the ongoing development of the tournament waterski site facilities. With their parents so passionate about the sport, the chances were high that the Donaldsons’ five children – Karl, Lana, Rachel, Hugh and George – would catch the bug, and they did. Lake Hood opened in 2002 when the kids were aged between two and 12, and three of them took part in the opening display to mark the occasion. Neil took on the presidency of Water Ski Lake Hood in 2005 and over the years they’ve organised countless ski schools and run tournament after tournament at Lake Hood, spending much of their summer lake-side. But, to get to the stage they are at today, where all the expansion has largely been done and it is mainly about management, has meant a lot of hard work. There hasn’t been much Janeen and Neil haven’t done. They’ve helped plant more trees for shelter at the site, and they drove the fundraising efforts for the new club house which opened in 2011, the same year in which the Clearwater and Lake Hood clubs went their separate ways. Things were under control off the water and on the water the Donaldson family was really making waves. Every year the Oz-Kiwi Challenge has been held since Karl’s first appearance in 2007, there have been Donaldsons involved, with Hugh the youngest ever competitor when he made it in 2010. That was the same year that second daughter Rachel went to Italy for the junior world championships. Over the years, waterskiing has taken the Donaldson family around the world. All bar one, maybe two, of the family holidays they’ve taken since 2007 have been with a three event ski bag in tow, and they’ve

Neil and Janeen Donaldson were recognised nationally for their years of work in the waterski world. been to some amazing destinations – China, Chile, America, Australia, Indonesia and South Korea, to name a few. Many were incredible purpose-built ski sites, but some of the waterskiing venues they’ve competed at overseas paled in comparison to what they had at home. The system used at Lake Hood when it comes to tournaments is the same one used around the world, and in 2014 it hosted an Oz-Kiwi Challenge. In that year the clubhouse was extended to include judging rooms. Much of the Donaldsons’ time now is spent organising events and judging at tournaments around New Zealand and Australia. Setting up the computer technology was Neil’s area of expertise, while Janeen looked after the book-work – things like the records, rules, personal bests, development projects and newsletters. Janeen has managed New Zealand representative teams, which she said was both an honour and a lot of work, while Neil was also the president of the Canterbury Water Ski Association and treasurer of the Lake Hood Management Committee. Neil has still found time to get out on to the water himself.

Once upon a time, dad was the benchmark for the kids in terms of how far they’d come, and while he trails behind them these days he is still a force on the water, taking a silver medal at the recent nationals in Auckland to add to the family’s vast collection. The couple are immensely proud of what their children have achieved over the years and while they know they are fortunate to have been in a position to be able to give them opportunities, and spending their retirement fund to travel with them, their kids had repaid them with their achievements and the sheer joy they’d got from it. “They have put the hard yards in. You don’t get the results without doing the work,” Neil said. “You give them the opportunity, but they have still got to have the drive and the determination.” The Donaldson kids certainly have that and you don’t have to look far to find where they got it from. Everything they’ve done, they’ve done for the love of the sport and the Donaldsons said it wasn’t all about them – they’d had a lot of help along the way.

“We’ve got committees full of passionate waterskiers,” Janeen said. There have been a lot of highlights. From seeing ski schoolers drop a ski, run the slalom course for the first time, or crash on a first jump and come up smiling, to their own kids’ achievements, all making New Zealand open podiums and worlds teams ... the memories are endless. Janeen said the moment they realised they were the latest recipients of the Ken Hey Memorial Award – only the second time it has gone to a South Island recipient – was surreal and very humbling. “It’s pretty amazing when you hear someone else talking about your life in waterskiing,” she said. What they’ve done for waterskiing in Mid Canterbury has ended up having a wide reach. From the time a man-made lake in Ashburton was first mooted, they’ve been a driving force in ensuring the people of Mid Canterbury had access to top class waterskiing facilities and events. “From our perspective it’s been huge, and it’s dominated our lives, but it’s a great family sport,” Janeen said. It was also far from finished, they said.

Ashburton Guardian 35

In brief Big day for Sharrock New Plymouth trainer Allan Sharrock has plenty of talent to unleash on his home track today, among the highlights the return of stakes performers Art Deco and Tutta La Classe. However, the most exciting talent produced from his stable at the meeting could be apprentice Hazel Schofer, the 20-yearold jockey set to make her raceday debut. “I’ve got five in and she’s on four of them,” Sharrock said. “I really think a lot of her. She’s shown a heap of ability. She uses the lefthand well with the whip and she’s a mature apprentice.” - NZME

Wexford stables have a strong chance of taking home the silverware at Arawa Park today where Giovanno Canaletto and Sleeping Beauty will represent the Matamata barn in the two feature races. Group One performer Giovanni Canaletto will contest the Rotorua Cup and his connections are hoping the regally-bred son of Galileo can replicate his form from February where he finished third in the Listed Kaimai Stakes at Matamata. The Lance O’Sullivan and Andrew Scott-trained seven-year-old subsequently finished unplaced in the Gr.2 Awapuni Gold Cup (2000m) on a Good3 track and his trainers believe he will appreciate the current Dead6 track conditions in today’s contest. - NZME

Pike crosses ditch Cambridge trainer Tony Pike has taken a seven-strong team to Queensland to tackle the rich spoils on offer in the sunshine state over the coming months. He will kick off the Queensland campaign for two of those runners this weekend when Terra Sancta and The Bostonian contest feature races at Doomben on Saturday. Both four-year-olds experienced a stellar campaign in Queensland last year, with Terra Sancta winning three of her four starts, while The Bostonian was undefeated in his three race campaign, which included victories in the Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes (1200m) and Gr.3 Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m). The son of Jimmy Choux has continued that run of form back in New Zealand, winning the Listed Counties Bowl (1100m) in November before putting in a number of solid performances at elite level.

Family duo flourish Aimee Tyler is loving her first season training in partnership with her father Kelvin. It’s a long-term goal come to fruition for the twenty-four-year-old who was the inspiration for her father to take out his training licence more than a decade ago. “He used to ride back in his younger days and his family was involved in racing. He went off it a bit and was more focused on dairy farming, but he always owned a couple and I convinced him that he should train his own,” Aimee Tyler said. “He started off training just a couple of horses from home and I would help him and as he got bigger I just followed him. I was always keen to get into training myself but with me being so young we decided to hold off for a bit while I built up my knowledge and then I got my licence earlier this season.”

Jake Bailey

G u e s t

S p e a k e r s

Jake Bailey is the ex-Christurch Boys’ High School senior monitor, whose end of year speech made worldwide headlines after going viral in 2015. A week before he was due to deliver this speech, Jake fell ill and was diagnosed with Burkitt’s NonHodgkins Lymphoma. Jake was given two weeks to live if this was left untreated. He persevered through to make his speech to his school and the video of this went on to touch the hearts of millions and draw support from around the globe. Since being announced in remission in January 2016, Jake has gone on to share his experiences, his story, and the things he has learnt which have given him clarity throughout his journey, in the hopes of helping others facing difficulties. Jake would be the first to tell you that nothing in life is certain, but one thing quite categorically is: Jake Bailey has a gift for making us want to be better human beings, simply by telling his story.

Keynote Speaker: Resilience - How can we promote it in ourselves and others?

Julie Zarifeh

Resilience is a frequently used, but in reality, little understood term. Julie Zarifeh is a clinical psychologist with professional and personal experience of the need for resilience in our lives. She will share her extensive knowledge on the topic, combining academic insights with personal experiences gleaned from living through the Christchurch earthquakes and navigating personal tragedy.  Her talk is insightful, inspirational and, above all practical, as she translates key research findings helping us all navigate challenge and change more effectively.

Cryptic crossword

Saturday, May 11, 2019

Simon Shuker’s Code Cracker

Your Stars ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19): People ache to be known. Remember this. Everything and everyone has a unique personality and nature. You honour this with your curiosity, and then social dynamics will settle into place. TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20): There are so many ways to be smart – musically, mathematically, spatially, socially, emotionally and more. You don’t really know a person until you’ve figured out which kind of smart the person is. GEMINI (May 21-Jun 21): How can you make things easier on yourself? Set yourself up so that it’s almost impossible not to fulfil your aim. This isn’t cheating; it’s just smart management of resources. CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 22): You’ll stumble upon very interesting people and scenarios but only because you’re looking in places others wouldn’t think to go. This could have to do with physical tools or unusual search terms. LEO (Jul 23-Aug 22): If you’re not talking to strangers, you’re missing out on knowing different facets of your own personality. Each person brings out something a little different in you. VIRGO (Aug 23-Sep 22): Be the best listener, and you’ll also wind up as the favourite person in the group, a fact you’re not likely to get confirmation of for a while. Though you’ll sense by the way you’re treated. LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 23): Some people are not aware of their own reception of others. They may think they are typical or even warm and yet they project flat disinterest. Don’t lose heart or confidence. Instead, adjust your expectation. SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 21): You get the other person and you come together perfectly on a subject that affects you both. Make a plan and keep each other on track. You’re more effective as a team than either of you could be alone. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): Social timing tells a story. When someone is warm and yet there’s a lot of time between interactions it suggests that though life is busy with various priorities, their affinity and affection for you remains. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19): Familiarity shows you many sides of a person. Great qualities get mixed with not-so-great ones. Being nice to people close to you is harder than extending kindness to a stranger and should count for more, too. AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): Those who pounce on the mistakes of others are enacting the lower impulses of humanity. You’ll raise your own spirits by involving yourself in finding out what people do best and are maybe even brilliant at. PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20): People want to hear from you, talk to you and receive your feedback. You’re absorbed in your own projects and socialising may not be a priority, but a short friendly response will keep the relationship going.
