THE INDEPENDENT VOICE OF MID CANTERBURY
D Day looms in election BY SUE NEWMAN
Ashburton’s mayoralty might be a three-horse race but that doesn’t mean the punters are prepared to place many bets on their favourites. With just over 24 hours remaining until voting closes in this year’s local body elections, the Ashburton District Council be heading for its lowest return of ballot papers ever. Late yesterday just 39.13 per cent of papers had been returned. At the same time in the 2010 election the return rate at the same stage was 52.91 per cent. Voters have had four weeks to vote and return their ballot papers either by post to the electoral office or by hand to the Ashburton District Council. A surprisingly low number have bothered. There may have been minimal interest in voting by post but there has been strong interest in taking part online in the Guardian’s poll conducted to gauge voter support for the three mayoral candidates. The poll may have been unscientific, but it pulled in the votes. In the early stages, sitting mayor Angus McKay surged ahead with Ashburton Citizens
Association member Russell Ellis in hot pursuit. Former Mount Hutt College principal Don McLeod was slow out of the starting gates but rallied and gained significant support in the mid stages of the poll. For several days Mr McKay maintained his dominance but by Wednesday morning the chasers had gained ground and the mayoralty appeared to be wide open. And so it continued until the poll closed at 9pm last night. It’s still anyone’s guess who’ll wear the district’s mayoral chains after voting closes at noon on Saturday. Provisional results will be known later that afternoon with the final vote count (including special votes) likely to be completed by Tuesday. Every voter on the district’s electoral role is entitled to vote for the mayor while people in the council’ urban ward can choose seven councillors from 13 on offer. Every voter in the Ashburton Trust area has the opportunity to select six candidates from a list of nine. There is no election for the council’s eastern and western wards.

Five things that may interest you
Drunk passenger strips
A drunk passenger who stripped naked on an airport tarmac and challenged the flight captain to a fight had to be tasered by police. The burly, tattooed 52-year-old was caught on video stripping to his black underpants, shouting and remonstrating after stepping off the easyJet flight from Malta to Manchester. He then removed his underpants and received a hard slap across his face by his female companion before putting his clothes back on. The incident was caught on video. The stripper, who has not been identified but spoke with a Manchester accent, also urinated on the side of the Terminal One building at Manchester Airport.
It pays to stay alert A man caught rummaging through a bin outside a Hamilton business was arrested with thousands of dollars of cash and a haul of suspected drugs and paraphernalia. Police said a member of the public alerted them after the man was seen going through the large rubbish bin at the back of a business about 1.30am. “As things turned out their concerns were well founded,” Sergeant Darin Frost said.
A big dollop of silence The latest in New York City dining? Eating in silence. A restaurant in Brooklyn’s trendy Greenpoint neighbourhood is serving up a four-course meal of organic, locally-sourced food, but isn’t allowing any chit-chat. Eat restaurant chef Nicholas Nauman says he was inspired to put on the occasional ‘No Talking’ affairs after spending time with Buddhist monks in India. He says the silence allows customers a chance to better experience the food.

Woman gives birth on lawn An indigenous woman squats in pain after giving birth, her newborn still bound by the umbilical cord and lying on the ground. It has horrified Mexicans because of where it took place: the lawn outside a medical clinic where the woman had been denied help, and it struck a nerve in a country where inequity is still pervasive. The government of Oaxaca announced yesterday that it has suspended the health centre’s director while officials investigate the incident. The mother, Irma Lopez, 29, (right) said that she and her husband were turned away from the centre by a nurse who said she was only eight months pregnant and “not ready” to deliver.

Left legless A Brazilian hospital says a patient with diabetic kidney failure has been left legless after going into an operation to amputate his right leg and having doctors remove his left. The spokesperson for Rio de Janeiro’s Pedro Ernesto University Hospital said that doctors were supposed to amputate the right leg of Antonio Cesar Victorio but instead they removed his left leg. “When the patient’s daughter told doctors they had removed the wrong leg, they amputated the other leg as well.” She says the hospital is trying to determine if doctors committed a medical error or if they “removed the left leg because it too was compromised by the patient’s disease”.

■ HEPATITIS A VACCINATIONS
Dramatic turnaround by parents By MyleS huMe
Health authorities are relieved with the dramatic rise in parents opting to immunise their children against hepatitis A after a poor showing at Tuesday’s first mass vaccination clinic. Figures provided by the Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) show a 79 per cent increase in the number of vaccinations carried out on Wednesday compared with Tuesday. The CDHB is holding six hepatitis A vaccination clinics across Mid Canterbury for one to four year olds in a bid to cap

out the following day. “The clinics are progressing well and we are happy with the turnout. There are more clinics next week, and it’s important that as many children as possible are vaccinated not only for the child’s own protection but also that of their family and the community,” Canterbruy medical officer of health Dr Alistair Humphrey said. Dr Humphrey said there were up to 1500 Mid Canterbury youngsters eligible for the vaccine, prompting him to call for at least 200 children to attend each of the clinics for him “to feel comfortable” about contain-

ing the outbreak in Ashburton. “This hepatitis A outbreak continues to infiltrate, spreading silently through the Ashburton preschool community,” Dr Humphrey said. “Often preschoolers with the disease will have no symptoms, but if they pass it on to their parents or grandparents the disease can get very serious and lead to hospitalisation.” Four more vaccination clinics are to be held until October 23, with two at St David’s Union Church in Allenton on October 15 and 16 along with vaccination clinics in Rakaia and Methven on October 23.

Mayfield gardens open to the public By GaBrielle Stuart firstname.lastname@example.org
Five families with links to the Mayfield Playcentre have opened their gardens for a fundraising tour tomorrow. The five gardens are Liz and Warren Scott’s Stonehaven, Glenys and Gregg Carr’s garden, Margaret and Don Ingold’s Whetstone property,
Nicky and Mark Morrow, Montalto and Kay and Morris King’s Gumleigh, which will also host a fete. Playcentre children have pitched in to help with the fundraiser too, growing a range of seedlings to sell at the garden fete, which will also feature food stalls and plenty of shopping.
Playcentre secretary Cate Hogan said that the gardens were each very different, ranging from large sculptural landscapes to colourful country gardens. The two acre Whetstone garden features 300 rhododendrons and more than 400 roses, while the woodland Montalto garden has been in the Morrow
family for six generations and was established more than 100 years ago. The gardens are all situated near Mayfield, and are open between 10am and 4pm for the self-paced tours. Tickets and more information are available in Ashburton from Lushingtons or Reflections.
For all the upheaval experienced by the Breakers in the Australian NBL offseason, some things seemingly never change. The three-time defending champions made a typically successful start towards making it an unprecedented four in a row, dispatching the Wollongong Hawks 92-73 with a minimum of fuss at Vector Arena last night. The Breakers began with Dean Vickerman on the sidelines - the first time since 2005 it has been someone other than Andrej Lemanis carrying the clipboard - and a host of roster changes but made light work of last season’s semi-finalists. In the absence of Cedric Jackson, with last season’s MVP having departed to Slovenia, the Breakers demonstrated their roster is still packed with enough power to make them serious contenders to extend their reign. The 6000-strong crowd watched pre-game as the Dillon Boucher’s No 24 was retired and the third championship banner was raised, before the current crop began their quest to add another in the best possible fashion. New point guard Kerron Johnson had a couple of rookie errors - missed free throws and defensive tasks - but showed more than enough evidence he can be the guiding hand the Breakers needed to replace Jackson, while Tom Abercrombie looked back to his springy self with 19 points after battling an ankle injury all last season. - APNZ

■ FIRE DISTRICT
Threat to stand-alone status By Sue NewmaN
It might be digging its toes in, but the Ashburton District Council may find it has little choice over becoming part of a large rural fire district. Currently Ashburton is a stand-alone district but the Government is keen to reduce the number of fire districts. A draft report which evaluated
the options for a large rural fire district in Canterbury has been prepared and discussed. This gives Ashburton two options – to be part of a Hurunui to Ashburton grouping or to look south for its new rural fire boundaries. In a report to the council, chief executive Andrew Dalziel said the council needed to make up its mind which way it would jump.
Standing still might not be an option, he said. “There will be pressure and the government has indicated if we don’t do this ourselves, they’ll do it for us.” That didn’t sway councillor Darryl Nelson who said Ashburton wanted to stand alone. “Until they can prove to us there is a saving or a benefit in joining any group we’re quite happy where we are.”
If Ashburton didn’t want to change it would have to prove that it could put out fires faster and cheaper than it would as part of an enlarged rural district, Mr Dalziel said. Before the evaluation report was finalised, Ashburton had to decide by the end of November whether it was in with the Hurunui group or whether it wanted to look at another option.

Information Centre celebrates 25 years Volunteers and staff, past and present, gathered yesterday to celebrate the 25th birthday of Ashburton’s Information Centre. The original centre, built in 1988, served the district well until 2003 when a decision was made to build a new centre that would serve Ashburton for an-
other 25 years. The council of the day had three choices – extend the existing building, construct a new building on the same site or relocate to a new site. Many people favoured a relocation to the Ashburton Railway Station. After much debate the Ash-
burton District Council decided a new centre in the heart of Ashburton was the best option and the old building was moved 30 metres north on the East Street green. That move took place in January 2005 and work began immediately on its replacement. When the new centre was com-
pleted, the old building was lifted onto the back of a truck and taken to the Hampstead Rugby Club grounds. Tenders were called for the building and ownership was eagerly contested. Today’s i-site was officially opened on July 1, 2005 by then Prime Minister Helen Clark.
Man dies after catamaran capsizes A man who died after a boat capsized in the sea off Northland was not wearing a lifejacket. Coastguard spokesman Ray Burge said it was the first time the deceased and another man, who had to swim for two hours to shore, had taken out the 16foot Hobie catamaran. Police and search and res-
cue volunteers began searching about 6pm yesterday after the survivor reached shore at Matapouri, near Whangarei, reporting his friend had remained with their capsized boat. The man said he had been in the water for about two hours before reaching the shore, police said.
Coastguard and a helicopter were deployed and the overturned boat was found by the helicopter crew about 7pm. A man’s body was found and recovered from the water about 20 minutes later. Mr Burge said it was fortunate there were not two fatalities, given the amount of time the other man had been in the
water without a lifejacket. The boat had split in two and volunteers from Tutukaka had managed to get it onto their boat and take it to shore. As well as not having lifejackets, the men did not have any form of waterproof communication on board. It was the first time they had taken the vessel out. - APNZ
A search has been called off for a microlight reported to have crashed in the Marlborough Sounds yesterday. A police spokesman said a helicopter had flown over the area and a search had been conducted on foot, with no sign of the missing aircraft. A witness called emergency services about 3.45pm with a report of what was believed to be a microlight crashing in smoke. - APNZ
Heke’s bones moved The remains of legendary Ngapuhi chief Hone Heke have been taken to a site just out of Kaikohe in preparation for the reburial of the bones at the end of the month. David Rankin descendant of Hone Heke, removed the 19th century warrior chief’s bones from a cave near Pakaraka, where they had lain since 1850. Mr Rankin said discussions with Ngapuhi iwi leaders led to the decision to bury the remains on Putahi, a mountain just north of Kaikohe, at sunrise on October 28. - APNZ
Grevious bodily harm A toddler may never grow to be a normal child or adult after his father violently injured him as a baby, a court heard.

He was found guilty by a jury during a retrial this year. He was handed a prison sentence of three years and six months. - APNZ

■ HOT PROPERTY MARKET
Long wait for rental properties By Sue NewmaN
If you’re new to Ashburton’s rental market you might be in for a long wait for a home. The pool of properties to rent has hit a low ebb, with one letting agent saying she had nothing available. For Di Skilling from McGregors the rent book is empty. The string of properties she manages are all full, but inquiries continue to come
in. For some, the wait for somewhere to live might be a long one, she said. For property managers and their owners, having a choice of tenants is they way they like to see the market; for renters, however, that means they need good references, no dogs and they need to have worked their way to the top of the letting list. While there continues to be strong demand for rentals, Mrs
Skilling said that hasn’t translated into a rent rise rort. Yes, rentals are inching up, but they moving at what agents consider an appropriate rate. If you can find a property to rent in the Ashburton District you can now expect to pay about $320 just to put a roof over your head. Online rental agency Trade Me had 19 three bedroom properties across the district for rent, ranging in price from
$230 to $450. The cheapest three bedder was an older cottage in Methven at $230. On Saturday there were just two property owners looking for tenants in the Guardian with the same number of people looking for somewhere to live. The rental squeeze is not new; at the same time last year, there were no properties available in the Guardian for rent, but there were still renters looking for homes.
Ashburton does its bit to add to market volatility By Sue NewmaN
Ashburton is playing a strong role in ensuring Canterbury continues to vie with Auckland for the dubious honour of having the hottest property market in the country. In the latest Quotable Value statistics for the year to September 30 Auckland continued its stranglehold on price escalation with most parts of the greater city showing double digit percentage increases in value, up to 16.9 per cent in some areas. Ashburton’s growth in sale price over the past year was 8.7 per cent, exceeded only by most areas of Christchurch, Selwyn and the Mackenzie District in the South Island. The average selling price in Ashburton has now hit $306,004, well below the cheapest average in Christchurch, $331,375 in the eastern suburbs. Many parts of New Zealand continue to show very little or negative growth for the year, with the hardest hit Otorohonga with an 18.2 per cent drop in values. Many parts of the South Island also have declining sale prices, with the hardest hit

Gore, with a drop of 3.9 per cent. High demand and short supply was pushing prices up in Auckland and Canterbury Jonno Ingerson, QV research director said and while most of the other main cities and provincial towns were also increasing it was at a more mod-
est rate. Five years ago, the average sale price in the Ashburton District was $260,147. This dropped to $256,905 in 2010 before beginning to climb again. Increases in the average price over the past two years have been 7.7 and 8.7 per cent.
It was still too early to gauge the impact of the loan to value ratio caps the Reserve Bank had applied to slow down rising values, he said. Dunedin is continuing to slow, with values static for the last six months and as a result only 1.8 per cent above last year.

Islands’ names now official By ReBecca Quilliam It has taken several years and cost at least $10,000 for the North and South Islands to officially be named what we’ve been calling them for decades. Yesterday Land Information Minister announced the official names for the country’s two main islands are the North and South Islands or, alternatively, the te reo names Te Ika-a-Maui (north), and Te Waipounamu (south). New Zealand Geographic Board chairman Don Grant said the total cost of recommending those names to the minister could not be quantified “due to the several years that the proposals have been under consideration”. But he said notification and advertising of the proposal this year had cost $6161.37 plus GST for newspaper advertising and the New Zealand Gazette notice. The board also paid two contractors $3012.20 plus GST for helping to process the submissions, Dr Grant said. “The board undertook three months of public consultation on these proposals from AprilJuly this year, with the overwhelming majority of public submitters showing that they wanted the choice to use the English or Maori names. The board received 2608 submissions from 1329 submitters. Of the submissions, 1842 were in support of one or more of the proposals and 766 opposed to one or more. Following Mr Williamson’s announcement, Land Information New Zealand maps and charts that feature the island names will reflect both the English and Maori names. - APNZ
High Court rules Phillipstown school merger ‘unlawful’ By KuRt BayeR A tiny Christchurch school that yesterday won a David vs Goliath legal battle against a government-forced closure hosted a victory party last night. Education Minister Hekia Parata’s decision to close Phillipstown School as part of her $1 billion post-quake city schools shake-up was unlawful, a High Court judge has ruled. Justice John Fogarty said the decision to close the decile 1 Phillipstown school and merge with nearby Woolston to create a 465-child super-school
next January was unlawful. “I conclude that the Minister has, inadvertently, not consulted to the standard required by the law,” he said. The decision was greeted with “tears of joy” yesterday, and the school had planned an impromptu party for last night, which was to include a bagpipe performance. “David won today. Words can’t express how we feel,” says principal Tony Simpson. “We’re thrilled by the judges decision. “We feel totally vindicated. “It’s the culmination of months and months of hard
work by a number of people.” The school received the decision around midday, before sharing it with the board, then staff, and then the parents and community. “There were tears of joy,” said Mr Simpson. The ministry said the school suffered quake damage, and it made sense to merge its small roll of 163 with another small roll. But the school was angry over a perceived lack of consultation, and Justice Fogarty agreed. While the judge was certain the ministry conducted
consultation “in good faith”, it had failed to meet the requirements of the Education Act. Labour’s associate education spokeswoman Megan Woods said the process was “botched from beginning to end”. “[Parata’s] faux consultation narrative and her inherent inability to listen to the community were always going to end in tears.” Ms Parata says she will review carefully the outcome of the judicial review. “We will urgently examine Justice Fogarty’s decision, and our options, including continuing consultation on the is-
sue that was of concern to the court,” she said. Whether the ministry will still pursue the school’s closure is uncertain. But Mr Simpson said his door was open to talks with the minister, as well as enrolments for next year. “We don’t want to be nasty about this,” he said. “We’ve received the outcome from the court - we have legal backing now. “So let’s get on with our core business which is caring for really good children and working hard for their interests.” - APNZ

‘Interesting’ season nears end By Myles HuMe
A record snowfall in June proved “the saving grace” for an eventful season on Mt Hutt which opens for its final weekend of 2013 tomorrow. A 50cm covering of snow this week has capped off what ski area manager James McKenzie calls “an interesting” 2013 season, which saw a record snowfall, followed by unwelcome mild weather and a chain of dramatic events. “With a few days to go I would say it’s definitely been an interesting season, but I’m
quite happy with how things are and it’s looking likely we will be up on last year’s tally (of people),” he said. With Mt Hutt being the laststanding South Island skifield open this season, others have struggled as decent snowfalls came in dribs and drabs. It has been much the same for Mt Hutt, except for a huge dumping around June 20 which saw an additional 2.8 metres of snow blanketed across its slopes – the biggest snowfall seen in 20 years. “We would have made it through and without the big
snow destroying our snow machines we would have been able to make snow. But July and August was so mild and the snow was few and far between and that’s where some of the other ski areas struggled,” he said. With an encouraging weather forecast filling Mr McKenzie with anticipation of a happy ending to the season on Sunday, it would be a fitting close to a season that has come with its headline events. The record snow in June triggered a major avalanche, taking out the skifield triple chairlift for the season, and that
was just days after another avalanche wiped out the snowmaking building. A contingent of stranded Mount Hutt College pupils also made headlines, along with the International Paralympic Committee’s world cup event and a 40th anniversary celebration. “This year was certainly a big year,” Mr McKenzie said. He said weather forecasts on the mountain predict light winds with cloud and light snow showers, meaning it was likely the mountain would be open through to its closing day on Sunday.
Biodiversity funds available to landowners Landowners and community groups in the Ashburton District have an opportunity to apply for a share of almost $3 million from Environment Canterbury’s annual biodiversity fund. The fund has been set up to encourage people to undertake work to protect and restore Canterbury’s unique native biodiversity. Biodiversity Team Leader Jo Abbott says the biodiversity funds, including the Canterbury Water Management Strategy Immediate Steps fund, provides financial support to communities and indi-
viduals where it can make a real difference. “We want to make sure most funding goes to on-the-ground biodiversity projects that people can see and take part in,” Dr Abbott said. “Projects that will deliver the greatest biodiversity benefits are most likely to be supported. The top priority is for projects to protect areas that already have high biodiversity value, such as fencing an area of native bush or wetland. “Projects that restore areas with some existing biodiversity value, for example infill planting in a native vegetation area,
will also be considered. “Some funding is available for creation projects such as entirely new plantings aimed at creating biodiversity hotspots. Up to two-thirds of the total cost of a project is available from the biodiversity fund and in-kind contributions such as labour costs can be considered as part of the applicants’ contribution. The Canterbury Water Management Strategy Immediate Steps fund is allocated through zone committees and the Regional Committee on behalf of the community. Applications for biodiversity
funding are accepted all year round. Projects with the highest biodiversity value will be funded immediately if they met the criteria. More information is available from the Environment Canterbury’s Biodiversity Team on 0800 324 636 if you have a project that might be eligible for funding.

Making life jackets compulsory on Lake Hood has seen “99.9 per cent” of boaties obey the rule, prompting its manager Gilbert Murdoch to back a move to mandate them for children across the country. Under rules exclusive to Lake Hood, each person on a boat that is “underway” must wear a lifejacket, in what Mr Murdoch says bolsters safety on the lake and in its canals. This week, National MP Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga released his private member’s bill. He wants to make wearing lifejackets compulsory for children under 15 on vessels six metres in length and under. Currently, the skipper only needs to have lifejackets on board for each person, but water safety advocates say if lifejackets had to be worn, many lives would not have already been lost. Mr Murdoch said the lifejacket rule was enforced by Lake Hood wardens on jetskis and other officials in the area, which has prompted the majority of boaties to always wear lifejackets.
He believed if similar laws were brought in it could have the same effect in other parts of the country. Maritime New Zealand has echoed similar views, and recently hosted US Coast Guard chief of boating safety Jeff Hoedt who said enforcement helped change boating behaviour. “Our experience is that when you mandate something as the law, there is a high level of compliance,” he said. “In the United States, we have very high wear rates for people under 13 – that compares with 21 to 22 per cent for the whole population going out on the water.” Lake Hood Aquatic Park project manager Gary Casey last week announced a new registration scheme, which will now require boaties to sign up their vessels to show they have read the rules and will comply. Mr Murdoch said it was not about bringing more rules, but to boost safety on a lake that continues to attract more punters each year. “It’s a lot about education more than anything else, we are trying to make it a safe place for everyone,” he said.

Becoming a member of the Ashburton Youth Council opens new doors and new opportunities says retiring chair Sara Kircher. She’s one of the council’s 12 members, most of whom are wrapping up their time as councillors before moving on to tertiary study. She joined the council at the end of year nine and said four years later she’s leaving with a wealth of experience that will be of huge benefit in the years ahead. “I joined because I wanted to get involved in the community, to help organise things for youth and to get our voice heard. The whole experience has been great,” she said. “If young people want to get their voice heard and their peers’ voices heard they have to stand up.” The council provided many opportunities for its members to be involved in their community but it also provided opportunities for involvement in national youth events too, Miss Kircher said. She said the opportunity to learn a range of new skills and to take on a leadership role will be a huge benefit as she moves into tertiary education. Applications are now open for council membership and with all but one of the current crop of councillors leaving, Miss Kircher said it was imperative new young people took advantage of the opportu-

Sick baby led to woman’s lucky escape By Patrice Dougan Taking a sick baby to hospital led to a lucky escape for a young woman after a car smashed into her bedroom. The Otara woman’s father said she and her partner were “lucky they weren’t at home” after the car caused the master bedroom of their south Auckland house to partly collapse. The woman was at hospital with her sick baby, while her partner was working a night shift when three teenagers crashed into the Otara house in a stolen Subaru about 4.20am. The 16-year-old driver is believed to have died on impact, while his two teen passengers were taken to Middlemore Hospital in serious but stable condition. The corner of the house, on the corner of Franklyne Road and Alexander Crescent, collapsed onto the car, trapping the driver and one passenger inside. Police said the car had been stolen overnight, but officers were not in pursuit at the time of the crash. It is not yet known whether alcohol was a factor. Sano Tamasese, said his daughter was “lucky” not to be at home. Everything in the bedroom had been destroyed, and yester-
day morning he was waiting to see whether he would be able to salvage anything from elsewhere in the house, including a new suite of furniture and a flat screen television recently bought. Mr Tamasese said his daughter had complained about boy racers in the area. Fire crews removed tiles and parts of the front walls of the house in a bid to free the car, which still contained the body of the deceased teen. Housing New Zealand said it had provided accommodation for both tenants of the house, which was split into two units. The family have accepted a property in Mangere, a spokeswoman said. A structural engineer was due to assess the house to ascertain whether it can be saved. In the meantime a 2m fence has been erected and 24 hour security put in place to protect the property. The teen driver killed in the crash is believed to have lived only doors down from the scene. A neighbour across the street ran to the aid of the three teenagers, after being woken by the sound of the vehicle, but was unable to save the driver. “I looked out the window and saw the car hit into the house,”

said 18-year-old Katai Liu. His sister rang emergency services while he ran to help the car’s occupants. “One of the passengers came out screaming for help ... I managed to pull the other passenger, not right out of the car, but to safety, so the ambulance people’s job would be easier.”
Mr Liu described the situation as “scary”. He said the deceased boy had been two years below him in school, and described him as a nice guy who was “easy to get on with”. “I just wish I could have done more for [him],” Mr Liu said. One woman, Eni Naniseni,
whose son went to school with the boys in the crash, said it was a “sad” day. “It’s really sad. I knew all those kids from when they were young and they all went to kindy with my son,” she said. “And now his life has been taken under the age of 17, it’s not good.” - APNZ
McDonald’s, Massey partnership Housing crisis?
What housing crisis?
By Myles HuMe
Ashburton mother Belinda Pearce admits she had no direction after leaving high school in the late 1990s - and filling a position at McDonald’s seemed more like a job than a career. Today, Ms Pearce is still working at the Ashburton fastfood outlet, but holds a respectable position as office manager for franchise owner Dave Whalley and is not ruling out opening her own branch in years to come. Turning that dream into a reality is a real possibility for Ms Pearce, who is seriously considering taking on a newly announced partnership between McDonald’s and Massey University which will allow her to build on her diploma by working towards a business degree. The unique agreement capitalises on McDonald’s in-house education and allows staff to cross credit their prior learning towards an undergraduate qualification at Massey University. “It’s something I’m still considering at the moment, but it’s definitely an exciting option to further my knowledge,” Ms Pearce said. It is a far cry from when she left Ashburton College with only a fifth form qualification more than a decade ago, and fell

into “the wrong crowd”. She worked her way through the McDonald’s ranks, establishing herself as a restaurant manager, before taking on a general manager’s role and obtaining a diploma in hospitality last year. “They all paid pretty well, so I can’t complain,” she said. Ashburton McDonald’s owner Dave Whalley, who is about to open his second store in Rolleston, said he encouraged his managers to obtain qualifications in hospitality, but the
Massey University opportunity allowed them to go a step further. “They could look to own their own franchise, or even go into the corporate world of McDonald’s, which can involve public relations, marketing and many other opportunities. “Or they could start their own business with the skills they have.” Mr Whalley said at least three of his managers were considering the Massey University business degree opportunity.
Housing Minister Nick Smith says there’s no housing crisis in Auckland or Christchurch. His comments come as a new report indicates housing affordability improved slightly in the last quarter. The Home Affordability Report by Massey University’s real estate analysis unit found housing affordability improved by 1.47 per cent during the quarter to August. Its calculations were based on median house prices, average mortgage interest rates and average wage rates. It followed a $2000 reduction in the national median house price, a 72 cent increase in the average wage rate and a reduction in the average mortgage interest rate from 5.57 to 5.52 per cent. Regionally, Auckland, Wellington, Central Otago/Lakes, Southland, and Canterbury/ Westland showed improved affordability over the quarter, while affordability declined in Hawke’s Bay, Manawatu/ Wanganui, Otago, Taranaki and Nelson/Marlborough. However, when viewed annually Auckland’s housing affordability still deteriorated,
and the city is still the nation’s least affordable region, it was 35 per cent less affordable than the national average. The report’s author, Professor Bob Hargreaves, did not anticipate the downward trend to continue. “If you take into account the comments of the Reserve Bank Governor about interest rates increasing, you could say there are some headwinds on the horizon,” he said. “The outlook for affordability is a bit grim I’m afraid.” Dr Smith said he didn’t put too much weight on a single quarterly measure of housing affordability, “although I do note that it has improved substantially since housing affordability reached its all time low in 2008 under the previous Labour Government”. He said the Government was committed to addressing housing affordability, particularly in Auckland and Christchurch, but did not accept there was a crisis. “I don’t accept that there is a crisis and the duplicity of parties like Labour is exposed when the affordability index was a whole lot worse in 2008 and they rejected any notion of there being a crisis then,” he said. - APNZ

Our drinking culture needs to change Coen Lammers EDITOR
he Local Alcohol Policy has created substantial debate in the community, but it remains to be seen how much it will truly affect the drinking habits in Mid Canterbury. Canterbury Medical Officer of Health Alistair Humphrey yesterday reminded Mid Canterbury that this district is one of the worst for alcohol-related illnesses and injuries. He points out that millions of dollars are spend on hospital admissions on those among us who cannot control their liquor consumption. The discussion around closing hours, just like the never-ending debate around the drinking age, is important but really just tinkering around the fringes. You do not have to be an expert to realise that late night drunks staggering from bar to bar are a recipe for disaster, so the one-way system has merit. The fact that council, bar owners, police and health authorities have agreed on the current LAP proposal is encouraging. Some off-licences will take a hit because of their earlier closing, but it remains to be seen if that will make any difference in the levels of the dreaded preloading. The argument to stay open longer to serve shift workers is not convincing because shift workers finish at all hours and they will have to learn to stock up the fridge before they head into work. The 3am closing could become the main issue, especially once a third late-night venue opens in town, and intoxicated patrons from three clubs will pour into the street. The bars will take care of any issues on their doorstep but who will monitor and deal with any trouble erupting around the corner? Earlier closing times and a one-way door system may curb some of the access to alcohol but does little to tackle our appalling binge-drinking culture and it will have even less impact on how we drink at home. Until we, young and old, learn that you can have a good night without getting plastered, our statistics will stay the same. Once staggering home becomes an embarrassment instead of a badge of honour, we may make some real progress.
YOUR VIEW Good columns Really enjoyed recent columns Phil Hooper’s ‘men and bbqs’ and Peter Livingstone’s ‘boys and lunchboxes’. Rosemary
Crime stats I’m really struggling to see how the crime stats are the lowest they have been for years. Here in Ashburton, youth offending and burglaries are the highest they have been for many years, if not ever, and what’s going on daily on the streets that is being observed frequently by members of the
public? Stand over tactics between youth demanding the property of others, smashing windows in parked cars etc. The culture of entitlement with marginalised young ones in this town is alive and well. Ashburton has a very active criminal element and a simmering gang element. The drop in crime is not reflected here. Raylene (text message)
Bad roads If the corners on the top part of Fords Road were sealed I would say okay, but it doesn’t

Winning - it’s the real world
POLL RESULT Yesterday’s result Q: Who should be the next Mayor of Ashburton? (Results when poll closed last night)
f I’m not mistaken professional sport is all about winning which means Steve Kearney made the right call. The Sonny Bill Williams flipflop landed him in an awkward position but he made the right decision to include him in the Kiwis’ World Cup squad. It has been the major talking point of the sporting landscape for 48 hours, polarising opinion across the country. The two camps are divided on whether SBW should have been included at the expense of Tohu Harris after stating he was unavailable just 24 hours earlier. The question is whether it was the right thing to do, but a lot of people are coming at it all wrong. They haven’t worked out that the right thing isn’t a reference to an ethical right or wrong as the underlining factor is, as it should be in sport, winning. The question should be posed, is it the right decision for winning the world cup? Then the answer is yes. SBW copped similar criticism when he came to rugby, but the money-bill detractors seemed to diminish in number when we won the Rugby World Cup and then even further when he helped the Chiefs to a Super 15 title. The guy’s a proven winner, even if he doesn’t go about it the right way - which for the record in this instance he clearly didn’t. Say what you like about the man in the street but as a player on the field, he is a game-changer and a proven winner. If you saw his inspired second half effort to spark the

Today’s online poll question Q: If you were the coach, would you have included Sonny Bill Willams in the Kiwis?
CONTACTS News tips Call 03 307-7957 firstname.lastname@example.org After hours Call 021 585-592 Advertising Call 03 307-7974 email@example.com Like him or loathe him, Sonny Bill Williams is a game-changer and he’s in the Kiwis.
Roosters’ comeback, you would be crazy not to include him. Harris is a promising young player and up-and-coming talent and I feel for him, but put yourself in Kearney’s shoes. When the reason behind the decision is defending the World Cup, Kearney made the call that had to be made. Kearney’s job is to win the World Cup against a starstudded Kangaroos side that has had the edge on us since that fateful world cup, win and Williams could be the x-factor to help achieve that. Everyone won’t like it, but he’s not in the job to make friends, he’s there to win and as a coach that’s how you make friends, Kearney knows that best of all from his brief tenure at Parramatta.
We hear all the time that sport has become big business and the inclusion of SBW is a good business decision, but I don’t think we really get that yet. It may be naive to think that the business aspect doesn’t extend to the national team, considering the Kiwis recent run of Australian converts pulling on the black jersey. They have a recent history of bringing in whoever gives them the best chance of winning and that is simply what has gone on here. This time it’s a Kiwi that changed his mind and at least it wasn’t changing his mind to don the green and gold such as James Tamou and Josh Papali in the current Kangaroos squad. It may not have been the ethical call, but welcome to
the big time of truly professional sport. He’s been labelled a sporting mercenary- well so too is any rugby player who goes offshore for the big bucks - SBW has just done it closer to home and been better at it. It is the modern reality, and there is big money for the big wins. New Zealand may not be ready for the modern era - we did give the Supreme Halberg award to a football team that had three draws and recently had a victory parade for a team that lost after leading 8-1. I still think it speaks volumes about our country, and I for one applauded the efforts of both but whether we like it or not, sporting modernity is upon us and winning is the only currency that counts.

Gunmen seize Libyan PM By Imed LamLoum Gunmen seized Prime Minister Ali Zeidan from a Tripoli hotel early yesterday, in the latest sign of the lawlessness sweeping Libya. The pre-dawn abduction comes five days after US commandos embarrassed and angered Libya’s government by capturing senior Al-Qaeda suspect Abu Anas al-Libi off the streets of Tripoli and whisking him away to a warship. “The head of the transitional government, Ali Zeidan, was taken to an unknown destination for unknown reasons by a group” of men believed to be former rebels, the government said in a brief statement on its website. A source in the premier’s office said Zeidan had been taken from Tripoli’s Corinthia Hotel, where he resides. “A large number of armed men entered the place very early on Thursday. But we did not know what was happening,” a hotel employee told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity. A group of former rebels, which had roundly denounced Libi’s abduction and blamed Zeidan’s government for it, said it had “arrested” Zeidan. The Operations Cell of Libyan Revolutionaries, which in principle reports to the defence and interior ministries, said on Facebook it had seized Zeidan “on the prosecutor’s orders”. The premier “was arrested under the Libyan penal code... on the instructions of the public prosecutor”, the group said. It said he was detained for “crimes and offences prejudicial to the state” and its security. The cabinet said on its Face-
A Hells Angels sergeant at arms allegedly threatened a police officer when he was arrested at a Melbourne business, a court has heard. Peter Hewat, 58, of Mickleham, was denied bail in an out-of-sessions court hearing after police conducted searches of his property and his towing business in Craigieburn yesterday. Hewat faces 13 charges after $47,000 of cash was seized from his business as well as weapons, a stolen car and car parts, cannabis, steroids, two flick knives and syringes. Hewat described the charges as “junk” when they were read to him during the out-of-sessions hearing. - AAP
US issues warning The United States warned its citizens yesterday of a “series of credible security threats” in the restive southern region of the Philippines, where a Muslim insurgency has raged for decades. The warning came on the eve of a planned visit to Manila by US Secretary of State John Kerry, although embassy officials declined to comment on whether the warning would affect the trip. Kerry is not scheduled to visit the areas mentioned in the warning, according to his official schedule released by the Philippine foreign department. - AFP

book page that ministers were “unaware of immunity being lifted or of any arrest warrant” for the prime minister. The Operations Cell of Libyan Revolutionaries had expressed outrage at the brazen daylight raid by US commandos to capture Libi. It said on Tuesday it had told its fighters to be prepared for orders to “hunt down and expel foreigners who are illegally in the country”. It added that it was on high
alert “in light of the deterioration in security and damage to the country’s sovereignty by foreign intelligence bodies”. The cabinet and the General National Congress, Libya’s top political authority, were dealing with the situation, the statement said, while calling on citizens to remain calm. US State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki, travelling with Secretary of State John Kerry in Brunei, said Washington was seeking more
information on the reported kidnapping. “We are looking into these reports and we are in close touch with senior US and Libyan officials on the ground,” she told reporters. “We are working to determine more details. Our embassy staff is safe. We have no further details at this time.” Zeidan, who was named prime minister a year ago, had condemned the US raid and insisted that all Libyans should be tried on home soil. - AFP
United States debt default looming By martIn aBBugao
President Barack Obama
Hells Angel denied bail
The United States sought to reassure Asian leaders gathered for an annual summit yesterday that Washington would resolve its political stalemate, after China voiced concern over a possible US debt default. The spectre of a calamitous default has emerged as a major issue at the Asian summit in Brunei, held in the absence of President Barack Obama after he was forced to stay home due to the US government shutdown. With Asian countries like China sitting atop a mountain of Treasury bonds, Chinese
Premier Li Keqiang expressed “Beijing’s concern about Washington’s debt-ceiling problem”. Li conveyed that message in talks with Obama’s standin, US Secretary of State John Kerry in Brunei, China’s official Xinhua news agency reported. A US official travelling with Kerry confirmed yesterday that the debt ceiling was discussed, but downplayed Beijing’s concerns, saying Li had vowed continued investment in the world’s largest economy. “Secretary Kerry made it very clear that this is a moment in Washington politics and he reaffirmed the president’s commitment to resolving the issue,”
the official told reporters. “They also agreed that the United States has one of the strongest economies in the world and that they have a shared interest in continuing the close economic working relationship.” China held $US1.277 trillion ($A1.36 trillion) in US debt as of July, according to Treasury Department figures. Kerry and Li joined 16 other world leaders in Brunei yesterday for the East Asia Summit the climax of nearly a week of top-level meetings which began in Bali at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum’s annual gathering. - AFP
Two men have been executed in the US with a drug not yet approved by federal authorities. In Texas, which has put to death more people than any other US state, prison authorities said Michael Yowell was pronounced dead at 7.11pm yesterday. His execution was delayed by an hour pending his final appeal to the Supreme Court, the highest court in the land, said Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Jason Clark. In Arizona, 71-year-old Edward Schad died at 10.12am, prisons spokesman Doug Nick told AFP. “Well, after 34 years, I’m free to fly away home,” said Schad, strapped to the execution table. “Thank you warden. Those are my last words.” Both Schad and Yowell were executed using a lethal injection of a barbiturate customised by a compounding pharmacy. The US Food and Drug Administration has not yet approved the drug. - AFP
Rinehart rejected Despite there being much talk of bringing about family harmony, the Rinehart children’s bitter feud with their billionaire mother Gina Rinehart continues to become even more complicated. In the latest development, Bianca Rinehart’s nomination to become trustee of a $5 billion family trust was rejected in court yesterday. On Wednesday, eldest sibling John Hancock announced through his lawyer that he would withdraw as a nominee to be trustee “for the sake of family harmony” and instead offered his sister Bianca as a candidate. But another sister, Ginia Rinehart, who has always sided with her mother, fought the proposal, saying she would prefer an independent trustee. - AAP

Shares in Mighty River Power gained 5c (2.3 per cent) to $2.25 yesterday after the company announced it would buy back up to $50 million of its shares less than six months after listing on the NZX. Shares in the state-controlled power generator and retailer have failed to fire, despite a strong showing when they listed on May 10. The shares were issued at $2.50 and shot as high as $2.73 on their first day. By August they
had sunk as as low as $2.17. Analysts said the stock had fallen prey to bad timing - listing around the same time as the release of the Labour-Greens’ plan to take control of the electricity market. Doubts about the future of the Tiwai Point aluminium smelter also weighed on the stock. Mighty River chairwoman Joan Withers said the board believed that the buyback, representing less than 2 per cent of the company’s shares, was a prudent use of capital. The purchase of up to 25 mil-

In the liquidator’s latest update, Mayo-Smith, Bethell and Tubbs said the quantum of any distribution to unsecured creditors will depend on the pursuit of the related party debts, and if unsuccessful, any return “is not likely to be substantial.” Mainzeal Property and Construction and Mainzeal Living were tipped into receivership on February 6, the Waitangi Day public holiday, and 200 Vic joined them on February 13. - APNZ
The receivers for failed construction firm Mainzeal Property and Construction have raised some $22.5 million in asset sales and recoveries from outstanding contracts, and are confident there will be some money left over for the liquidator to mop up.

Access to your ancestors Two of the world’s largest family-history research organisations are joining forces in an effort they say will bring a billion historical records online. The Mormon churchoperated FamilySearch and Utah-based Ancestry.com have announced a deal in which they will collaborate to bring online the church’s vast worldwide collections of family-history records. Ancestry.com chief executive Tim Sullivan says while details need to be worked out, his company plans to pour more than $US60 million ($72.6 million) into the effort over the next five years. “To have the two, I guess one could say, largest and most important organisations in the family-history space working together to bring over a billion records online over the next several years is just a fantastic thing,” Sullivan says. FamilySearch calls itself the largest genealogy organisation in the world. It is an arm of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, better known as the Mormons. The beliefs of the Salt Lake City-based church are centred on extended families joined together through ceremonies in its temples. Ancestry.com describes itself as the “world’s largest online family-history resource”. About 2.7 million paying subscribers have access to online records and connections to other family researchers. Don Anderson, FamilySearch senior vice-president of patron and partner services, says his organisation sees the agreement as further expanding its historic mission of providing access to family-history research material.
Dutch win Challenge The car finished in the rain, with the sun it runs on nowhere in sight, but that didn’t matter to the Dutch Nuon team as they triumphed in the World Solar Challenge from Darwin to Adelaide. The Nuna7 crossed the line on Thursday to claim the title with an average speed of more than 90.71km/h for the 3000km journey. Bad weather slowed its progress on the final day but also caused problems for key rival, Tokai University from Japan. At one stage, organisers said, the Japanese car ran out of power and was forced to pull over just north of Adelaide to recharge its batteries. Solar Team Twente, also from the Netherlands, headed to Adelaide in third place. - AAP
Warmth from warheads Uranium fuel from 20,000 disarmed Russian warheads is generating about half of US nuclear power in a spinoff from a landmark disarmament accord, a top US official says. But the deal under which 500 tonnes of Russian weapons-grade uranium has been used to light and heat US homes will end next month because Russia believes its former Cold War rival has been getting energy on the cheap. Rose Gottemoeller, US under secretary of state for arms control, told a UN committee this week the 1993 accord was a disarmament success. Arms control experts call it the “megatonsto-megawatts” deal and hail the accord as a little known but important example of the United States and Russia pressing disarmament. - AFP
“I think from a FamilySearch perspective, what we’re trying to do is work with a variety of partners where we can make the records the most accessible to individuals to use them,” he says. “This relationship with Ancestry is really indicative of work we’re trying to do across the board.” The effort of the two organisations will be directed at taking Mormon church-gathered records from around the world, now mostly in microfilm, and converting them into digital form that is searchable online.
For Ancestry.com, which operates mostly in Englishspeaking countries as well as Sweden, the deal will provide it with records from many other countries and enable it to expand its reach, says Sullivan. We’re really excited about the chance to potentially open up new businesses in new international markets, but as important, give Americans access to records from some of the nations of their homelands,” he says. The effort joins the nonprofit FamilySearch, which
provides free access, and the for-profit Ancestry.com, which charges monthly fees for access to its databases and services. The two organisations have collaborated on projects for several years and Sullivan says Ancestry.com does not view FamilySearch’s free content as a drain on its revenues. “If anything it’s a great way to let people try out the category with a free site,” he says, while Ancestry offers other content as well as access to a large online community and special technology. - AAP
Trustworthy? Fewer than one in ten Australians trust social media companies to protect their personal information, but industry giants such as Facebook and Twitter continue to flourish regardless. According to new results from the office of the Australian Information Commissioner’s ongoing study of attitudes to privacy, Australians are less trusting of social media companies than they are of debt collectors and market researchers. The study of 1000 people, released on Wednesday, found nearly half thought social media and other online services pose the greatest privacy risk, ahead of ID fraud and theft. - AAP

In brief Eventing heats up All eyes will be on the National Equestrian Centre at McLeans Island, near Christchurch, this Sunday as the South Island’s leading eventers go through their final preparations for the National One Day Eventing Championships next month at ESNZ Eventing Canterbury’s One Day Horse Trial. A field of seven will contest the CNC2* headed by Rangiora’s Ellie Braddock and Miss Matilda. Madison Crowe (Ashburton) on Brogan will also be looking for an improved performance, while Larissa Srhoy (Loburn) on Smirnoff are all stepping out for the first time at this level.
Touch up and running Methven’s once strong touch competition was in danger of being cancelled this week. The Friday night competition once easily filled four fields, but struggled to get enough teams for one round. Earlier this week the committee had only received five intermediate entries and a paltry six senior teams to be faced with a tough decision of cancelling the competition. “We’ll have enough now to run a competition,” Methven touch president Rob Markillie said. “It would have been a shame to call it off because it’s such a good competition and everyone enjoys playing.” He said entries close this weekend with the competition to start next Friday. The Collegiate touch competition has moved to Friday nights after declining numbers of their Thursday competition last year and a 12-team mixed competition started last week with their second round tonight.
Mexicans unhappy Mexican club side Queretaro are seeking a Fifa sanction against New Zealand Football for pulling out of a friendly with the All Whites this weekend but NZF aren’t expecting the world’s governing body to take any action against them. The All Whites and Queretaro were originally due to meet in a six-team tournament in Los Angeles but that tournament fell over when a team from El Salvador couldn’t play because of visa issues. Talks were then held for New Zealand and Queretaro to still play, either in LA or Mexico. Queretaro felt they had an agreement - tickets had gone on sale - and feel aggrieved the match won’t take place. - APNZ
Smith staying put Australian captain Cameron Smith insists he will be a Melbourne player next year but remains coy on his longer term NRL future. Smith has been linked with a move to his hometown of Brisbane and will become the most sought-after player in the NRL next season when his contract expires at the end of 2014. Smith has three young children and has stated in the past the lure of a return to Brisbane to be closer to his and his wife’s family could determine his future with the Storm - with whom he debuted in 2002. However, the 30-year-old said his only focus for the remainder of the year is reclaiming the Rugby League World Cup for Australia in the UK and Ireland. - AAP

Crunch time for semi spots BY JONATHAN LEASK
Mid Canterbury battle Buller in the final round of the Heartland Rugby Championship in Westport tomorrow. The equation is simple for the Hammers, win and they get to host a Meads Cup semi-final next weekend. Buller will be equally desperate to get the win, sitting three points behind the fourth placed West Coast, who travel to Cooks Gardens to play Wanganui. The Hammers are coming off a convincing 44-11 win over Thames Valley where they executed an expansive game-plan. That may not be ideal in tricky conditions that await them in Westport, with some typical West Coast rain forecast but Mid Canterbury coach Glenn Moore was adamant they would still give the ball some width “when it’s on”. “Last week there was a mix and as well as going wide we played Thames Valley through the centre a bit,” Moore said. “Buller have a similar defensive structure where they don’t attack a lot of rucks so that they have plenty of numbers in the line.” “Buller have the best defensive record in the competition and the only ones equal to them is us, but they haven’t scored a lot of points.” Mid Canterbury and Buller have both conceded a total of 118 points but Mid Canterbury are the only team to notch over 200 points, with Buller only managing 135. “They have a good side with potential to score points. They have a good backline with plenty of pace so we have to be cal-
culated in how we go about it.” Moore has been able to name the same starting XV as last week, with only one change on the bench with Logan Bonnington back on deck and Ashburton College flanker Seta Koroitamana who impressed off the bench on debut last week retaining his spot. “We have had a stable team for the last few weeks but guys who were in starting position have been out injured and there is that competition for spots which keeps every hungry and on their toes.” Giving some of the players an extra incentive to perform ahead of the playoffs is the fact that Mitch Sim, Andrew Fluker and Jake Ashby are due to be back from injury next week and Esera Lauina didn’t travel because his wife is due to have a baby. The Hammers have won both times they have met Buller in Westport, picking up a 32-12 win in 2010 but their most recent run-in with Buller was a narrow 30-27 win in Ashburton in 2011, having yet to lose to the blue-and-reds. They will look to keep that streak alive tomorrow and book a home semi-final.

PLAYOFF PERMUTATIONS Mid Canterbury and Wairarapa Bush are in the box seat to host semi-finals in the Heartland Rugby Championship but a loss from either could have them overtaken by North Otago. Currently in third and three points behind the leading pair, North Otago face the secondto last Horowhenua in Oamaru and are a high probability to get a bonus point win to move to 30 points. Wairarapa Bush (28 points) are away to a Thames Valley side that was well-beaten by Mid Canterbury last week to suggest they will pick up at least the four points, while Mid Canterbury (28) have a tough task of Buller (20) at home in Westport. Wanganui (19) can resurrect their season if the get a win at
home over the West Coast (23), which would leapfrog them up over the Coast. However, they also require a helping hand from rivals Mid Canterbury to beat Buller and allow Wanganui to scrape into fourth place - keeping their streak of top four finishes intact for an eighth year. South Canterbury (18) will feature in the Lochore Cup, unable to finish higher than fifth when they meet the defending Meads Cup champions East Coast in Ruatoria. East Coast (10) needs the win and results to go their way to sneak into the Lochore Cup playoffs. King Country (14) are the vulnerable side, sitting eighth with Thames Valley and East Coast able to overtake them, but have the luxury of hosting the winless Poverty Bay.
Jackman back for World Cup defence BY JONATHAN LEASK
The New Zealand Sevens team are looking for a fast start to their Sevens World Series title defence in the Gold Coast this weekend. Having won the World Cup Sevens in Moscow shortly after they won an 11th Sevens World Series title, New Zealand head into this weekend’s Gold Coast Sevens at Skilled Park as the team to beat. Mark Jackman is returning to the squad for the first round of the Sevens World Series after a long-term injury forced him to watch his team’s successes from the sidelines. “I’m really excited to be back in the team and can’t wait to play.
It’s been a frustrating 12 months watching,” Jackman said. Jackman initially dislocated and broke his thumb against the USA in the opening game on the Gold Coast last year, and New Zealand again run out to open their campaign against the USA but Jackman has no reservations about a repeat occurrence. “None at all. I am feeling confident, the way I broke my thumb in the past came down to poor technique, I have worked hard to improve it over the past few months.” The Gold Coast Sevens is one tournament that has eluded Sir Gordon Tietjens, who has been at the helm since the series began in 1999 and is chasing a
Mark Jackman: Frustrating year
12th World Series title. New Zealand last won the Australia Sevens when it was in Adelaide in 2010, but have lost in the final to Fiji in both of the two finals at Skilled Park
and will no doubt want to assert their authority at the earliest possible opportunity this weekend. “We haven’t spoken at all about past performances here, we are just focused on this one. “This is a completely different team to last year.” The only new face to the sevens scene is 21-year-old Wellington wing Ambrose Curtis, while Joe Webber has earned a recall after he played seven tournaments back in 2011/12. The rest of the squad are the regulars in DJ Forbes, Tomasi Cama, Tim Mikkelson and Lote Raikabula. As well as the USA, New Zealand faces Tonga and Kenya on day one of the tournament.

Young guns moving on up By Jonathan Leask
There has been a changing of the guard in Mid Canterbury Open A grade tennis. The junior grade representatives have moved up to fill the open grade ranks, with just a few of the old guard left playing the Saturday afternoon interclub competition. Open grade convenor Tony Brosnahan said that with the varying availability of a number of the senior players, who had a range of “other commitments”, resulted in A grade losing one team from last year to be down to a five team competition, but the positive was that the younger players are stepping up. “There are only a few of the old guard left and the youngsters are moving through as they should.” Methven and Fairton aren’t in the draw this year and have been replaced by a youthful Hinds team leading the rise of youth players coming through. Highly ranked Canterbury 12s representative James Watt heads the Hinds team that includes Duncan Rollinson and Hayden McNulty. Hinds meet Hampstead who also boast a youthful line-up with Joseph Langley, Christal Brosnahan, Connor Brosnahan and Milly Young. In the other match Allenton take on Tinwald, leaving Dorie to wait a week with a bye in the opening round. Allenton will be fronted by experienced newcomer Neil McCann playing with Poppy Sparrow and Larissa Allan while one of the old guard, Don Lake, leads Tinwald. Dorie have the services of Rhys Cromie to play alongside Luke Glendining, Mary-Anne Thyne and James Wild. Tony Brosnahan said that Jayden Cromie, Peter Leonard and Neil Fowler are a few of the players that won’t be seen on court at all this year, while players such as Greg Feutz, Jason Feutz and Ben Wright fill
Collier Trophy The Mid Canterbury Primary A girls clinched their first win at the Collier Trophy hockey tournament beating Wairarapa 1-0 in their bottom section quarter-final in Wellington yesterday. Jaidyn Busch hit home with what proved the match winner for Mid Canterbury breaking a run of five straight losses at the national tournament. The girls had gone through pool play without a win playing Waikato (0-3), Eastern Southland (1-3), Central Otago (2-5), Tauranga (0-2) and finished with a 0-2 loss to Hawkes Bay. Mid Canterbury takes on Taranaki in their semi-final today.
Mid Canterbury Primary A boys recorded an emphatic 6-0 win over Southland in their bottom section quarter-final at the Hatch Cup hockey tournament in Hamilton yesterday. Harrison Davies scored a hat-trick and Angus Haugh hit home with two goals with Ryan Bradley adding the sixth as Mid Canterbury ensured they will avoid the bottom four places. Mid Canterbury had completed pool play with a 1-all draw with Wairarapa after a goal from Haugh, but still finished bottom of pool B after losses to North Harbour (0-4), Otago (0-3), Manawatu (1-3) and Counties Manukau (1-4). Mid Canterbury meet Central Otago today.
Festival of Hockey The Mid Canterbury B girls advanced to the top eight of the Festival of Hockey South Island primary tournament in Ashburton yesterday. Mid Canterbury met Canterbury Development in the quarter-finals and lost 0-1. They meet Nelson in the semi-finals today for fifth to eighth before the finals tomorrow.

a long list of possible reserves. Ashleigh Leonard and Stacey Hopwood will also be absent for a large part of the season after being invited to play Premier
grade tennis in Christchurch this season, blazing a trail for the current youth uprising in open grade. A reserve has six teams of
good standard with players all aligned with their local clubs and a strong junior interclub competition also starts tomorrow.
Lowndes hits top gear in opening practice Practice makes perfect - or so Craig Lowndes hopes. The Holden veteran made an impressive start to his quest for a sixth Bathurst 1000 title by topping the timesheets at yesterday’s opening practice. He clocked two minutes, 10.56 seconds ahead of Ford threat Mark Winterbottom

(2:10.28) and Andrew Jones’ Holden (2:10.36). Lowndes is more than familiar with the Mount Panorama circuit - this year marks his 20th Great Race. Remarkably, Lowndes has finished on the Bathurst podium eight times in the past 10 years including four wins. He is second on the 2013 championship standings, just
96 points behind Holden teammate Jamie Whincup. Three-time V8 champion Lowndes has his best shot at breaking a 14-year title drought this year. But Lowndes said winning another Bathurst crown would mean more. “I have always said Bathurst is it for me - there is no doubt about that,” Lowndes told AAP.
“The championship is a huge achievement because you have got the whole year right and that’s what it is all about. “But Bathurst is singularly the biggest race of the year. For me, it is all about Bathurst.” One more podium finish for Lowndes will put him equal with legends Peter Brock, Larry Perkins and Jim Richards for the most at Bathurst. - AAP
The Canterbury Country teams both tasted victory on day two of the under 13 national basketball championships in Dunedin yesterday.

After a 43-70 loss to Taranaki to start with the boys bounced back with a 64-62 win over Tasman on day one. The Canterbury Country Girls claimed a 69-25 win over Gisborne then beat Tasman 48-43 to complete pool play. The girls, featuring eight Mid Canterbury girls, had opened with a 53-39 win over Auckland but couldn’t match it with the other big city side Counties-Manukau 36-65 on day one.
Football Selwyn settled for third at the South Island under 17 girls’ football tournament in Methven. Selwyn, featuring three Mid Canterbury players, advanced to the semifinals after a dramatic penalty shootout win over Canterbury in the quarterfinals on Wednesday but were no match for eventual winners Otago, going down 4-0. They then met South Canterbury and claimed a 2-0 win to finish third while Otago beat Nelson 1-0 in the final. Jess Dray was named the Selwyn MVP for the tournament.

Hot Spot axed Controversial decision-review technology Hot Spot has been dumped by the Nine Network for the second leg of the Ashes. The Australian inventor of the technology, Warren Brennan, confirmed to Fairfax that the infrared camera, which uses heat readings to detect ball contact, will not be used for the series in Australia, beginning in Brisbane on November 21. Mr Brennan said the broadcaster had a new deal with Cricket Australia, and the decision to axe Hot Spot was final. The cost of the technology, about $250,000 for the Test series, is reportedly behind the decision, although problems during the first leg of the series in England were reportedly also a consideration. The decision-review system came under heavy fire from both sides in England, with Hot Spot’s reliability one of the key complaints. In response to the concern, the International Cricket Council (ICC) last month announced they had formed a working group to look at how to improve both DRS and the training of umpires. The ICC also announced that team’s referrals would be topped-up to two reviews after 80 overs of an innings. - AAP

Ko turning pro? Kiwi golfer Lydia Ko could turn professional as early as next month, according to the teenager’s mother. After forging one of the most successful amateur careers in the history of the game, Ko has long dealt with speculation about when she will assume professional status. And the 16-year-old’s mother, Tina Hyon, revealed that will come sooner rather than later, with Ko set to play as a professional at the LPGA Tour’s season-ending event in Florida. “If she plays any pro events now, she will play as a pro,” Hyson told the Golf Channel. Ko has already foregone winnings of more than $1 million in her amateur career. - APNZ

YOUR STARS by Forecasters
ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20) Where you’ve been distracted with life’s temptations over the last few days there is a chance today to put your professional hat back on. TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21) There is a real T.G.I.F feel to the day, with the Moon’s return to an adventurous part of your chart bringing a weekend feel into play. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 22) As your financial instincts kick in this will provide a sense that the tide has turned. Keep your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground. CANCER (JUNE 22 – JULY 24) The Moon divides his time between your work and relationship sectors today, with a chance to focus on your personal and professional relationships. LEO (JULY 24 – AUG 23) The first step towards creating the right boundaries in order to have the right work/life balance is a belief that you can and deserve to have it all. VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 23) Chances are you’ll be ready to toss your toys from the playpen today, not too happy to hear the word ‘no’ or to miss out on what you want. LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 23) In all home and family matters your focus needs to be on the future and the road ahead, learning from the past but putting it behind you. SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) With life getting busier there has to be some compromises and also support. Don’t assume that others are mind readers and know what you need. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) A nose for money comes in handy with things due to take off on the professional front next week, with a need to trust what it’s telling you. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) While Venus is evoking a lot of old memories there is a reminder today that you can look back, but the arrow of time only moves one way. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) There is likely to be a sense that something has shifted, for while you will often have valuable hunches you aren’t always as willing to act on them. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) You’re more likely to find yourself in the right place at the right time if you don’t over think or over plan things. Instead wing it as much as possible.

Vitali first, daylight second Five horses lined up for the standing start in a qualifying pace at yesterday’s Chertsey Trotting Club trials, but only one managed to turn on a faultless performance for the entire 2400 metres. Three-year old Tyronne’s Aphrodite looked to be in control from the start, stepping out smartly and then
taking the lead, followed by Vitali. Trouble I Am and Star Filly both made a tidy start but Liquenda counted himself out immediately, breaking and running wide. First time round it was still a fourhorse race with Vitali in the lead, but at the 1100 metre mark Tyronne Aphrodite and then Trouble I Am broke
and lost ground. With just two left in contention, Vitali and Star Filly continued at a tidy pace and by the 800 metre mark had opened up a big gap on the trailing pair. As they turned for home, Versteeg had Vitali at full stretch, pushing on to win by 17 lengths in a smart time of 3.12.8.
Star Filly came home in 3.15.2. The pair ran the final 800m in 60.8, 400m, 30.6. Tyrone’s Aphrodite came home third 18 1/2 length in arrears with Trouble I Am trailing by 44 lengths. Vitali is a four year old MonarchySun City gelding, trained by John Versteeg at Irwell.
Leaving his competitors eating dust, four year old Vitali with John Versteeg in the sulky, made the qualifying pace at yesterday’s Chertsey Trotting Club trials into a one horse race. PHOTO TETSURO MITOMO 101013-TM-015
Hawke’s Bay provides huge upset BY CHRIS RATTUE A brilliant Ihaia West solo try completed a shock Hawkes Bay victory over Wellington in Napier last night. Previously unbeaten Wellington had already nailed top spot in the ITM Cup premiership going into their final match. But heavy underdogs Hawkes Bay needed a win to push for a home semi-final in the championship division, and their 35 24 victory has left them hoping
that Auckland will beat Otago in their final encounter in Dunedin. Hawkes Bay threw the early grenades, hung on with courageous defence in the tough times, and finally won the war in a stirring match of individual brilliance and crunching confrontations. West was already one of the stars before his long range try, with clever running and excellent goalkicking. Prop Jeffery Toomaga-Allen
put in a rampaging display in a Wellington side which held an advantage in the tight battles. But the Hawkes Bay loose forwards threw themselves into defence to compensate as the game turned into one of the best of the ITM Cup season. Hawkes Bay shocked Wellington in the opening stanza, flooding through their defence, riding some luck and hitting a 17 - 0 lead by the 18th minute. Both of their tries in this period had major question marks
over them. Zac Guildford scored the first, powering through the tackle of lock Kaipati Gaualofa, but the chance was set up by an awful touch judge decision against Wellington. The second try, finished by Telusa Veainu, involved a short but clear forward pass which the video referee overlooked. That aside, Hawkes Bay were worth their lead via a physical approach that rocked the runaway leaders of the premiership. The inter-house Hurricanes
battle perhaps helped in firing the Magpies up. Wellington’s scoring chances were rare, but they took them. Scrum power set up the first try and their forwards rumbled through Hawkes Bay for the second, finished by lock Mark Reddish.
Hawkes Bay 35 (Zac Guildford, Telusa Veainu, Adam Bradey, Ihaia West tries; Ihaia West 3 con, 3 pen), Wellington 24 (Victor Vito, Mark Reddish, Afa Fa’atau tries; Lima Sopoaga 3 con, pen). Halftime: Hawkes Bay 23 - 14. - NZH
