Five things that may interest you

Williams moving family back to UK

Singer Robbie Williams is moving back to his native England to ensure his children get the benefit of the country’s education system. The Brit has spent most of his time in Los Angeles since 2006, briefly returning to the UK in 2009. However, the former Take That star is now bringing his family to the British capital after reportedly spending $US4 million ($NZ4.6 million) on a north London home so his 21-monthold daughter Teddy and unborn second child can be educated in his home nation. “I love LA. The people and the weather are great but it’s not England,” he tells Britain’s The Sun. “Things change when you’re a dad – there are people to look after who are more important than yourself.”

Styles records wedding video for fan Pop star Harry Styles made a fan’s dream come true by recording a special wedding video imploring her to run away with him. The One Direction heart-throb was asked by James Gershfield to record a message for his wife-to-be Tash, who is a huge fan of the group. In the clip, Styles urges the bride to rethink her decision and instead elope with him. Despite the offer, the couple married at the weekend and shared the video online two days later. “Thanks so much to @Harry_Styles for the video at my wedding.”

Lopez kicks off World Cup Soccer is all about fancy footwork and JLo’s sexy salsa moves didn’t disappoint at the World Cup opening ceremony. The pop superstar opened the pre-match extravaganza alongside Brazilian songstress Claudia Leitte and rapper Pitbull, performing the tournament’s official song, We Are One. The American Idol judge shimmied in an emerald green leotard as she sang the upbeat anthem surrounded by more than 600 supporting artists. They included acrobatic gymnasts, trampolinists, martial arts-style capoeira performers and stilt walkers, in a colourful homage to Brazil’s three great treasures: nature, people and football. At the centre of the show, a giant LED ball made up of more than 90,000 light clusters illuminated the stage. It was one of few large-scale technical wonders, as organisers were ordered to avoid placing a strain on the pitch ahead of a match-up between Brazil and Croatia 75 minutes after the ceremony.

Keep your distance Ashton Mila Kunis says she wants her fiance Ashton Kutcher present at the birth of their baby – as long as he stays clear of the action. “Two people are allowed in my delivery room. My doctor and my significant other,” the actress told US Marie Claire. “And he is staying above the action ... I highly doubt he wants to see (me) being ripped apart and shredded. Because it will be shredded. It’s just a matter of how badly.” Kunis made headlines this week with her rant warning men to stop saying “we’re pregnant”. Now she says she’s happy for her partner to be at her side during the birth as long as he stays at the top end of the delivery bed. Kunis and Kutcher met in 1998 as co-stars of the popular US sitcom That ‘70s Show, in which they played an on-screen couple. Their off-screen romance didn’t begin until April, 2012, months after his 2011 separation from ex-wife Demi Moore.

■ ASHBURTON DISTRICT STAND-DOWNS

Stand-downs: attacks main cause BY MYLES HUME

MYLES.H@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Attacks on staff and pupils are the most likely reasons for Mid Canterbury schools to take serious disciplinary action. Ministry of Education figures supplied to the Guardian suggest a significant decline in the number of stand-downs, suspensions and exclusions in the district’s 23 schools since 2008 – although the true extent of that drop remains difficult to judge. Privacy concerns

mean the ministry does not say how many incidents a school has had if it has had fewer than five. The figures also reveal the reasons why Mid Canterbury schools took the action with alcohol, continual disobedience, assaulting pupils and verbally abusing staff the common causes. From 2008 to 2013, of the at least 443 stand-downs, a minimum of 131 were due to verbal assaults on staff while at least

111 were because of physical attacks on pupils. The figures show pupils were most likely to be suspended – a formal removal while a school decides to terminate the enrolment or allow a pupils to stay – for continual disobedience with at least 46 cases making up about a third of total suspensions. That was closely followed by assaults on pupils and verbal abuse of staff, however those figures have been declining

significantly, in some cases by more than half, since 2008. Mount Hutt College principal John Schreurs said respect for staff and fellow pupils appeared to be on par with previous years, but schools were dealing with problem behaviour differently or earlier in the process. He said he would not be drawn on the most common reasons for serious disciplinary action because each case was dealt with individually, but

he was seeing fewer repeated stand downs and suspensions. When it came to exclusions and expulsions, continual disobedience was the probable reason with at least 19 of the minimum 47 expulsions during the six year period. Mid Canterbury Behavioural Reference Group chairman and Hampstead School principal Peter Melrose said as the problem gained prominence they became the focus of the initiatives in place.

■ FOOTBALL WORLD CUP

Fans fail to take advantage of early openings BY ERIN TASKER

ERIN.T@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

If Mid Canterbury people were watching the FIFA Football World Cup opening match yesterday, it would appear they were doing it from the comfort of their own homes. Ashburton pubs that opened their doors early anticipating crowds of people flooding in to watch the opening match between Brazil and Croatia were disappointed in the numbers. They’re confident though that the numbers will come with the bigger matches. Ashburton accountants Steve Carr and Elliot Jones pretty much had Braided Rivers to themselves as they took in the action yesterday and they were surprised more people did not turn out. But they also believed that come the semi-finals and final, it would be a different story and places like Braided Rivers will be rushed off their feet. Ashburton Trust chief executive Giles Beal said both Braided Rivers and the Hotel

Ashburton’s Turf Bar opened early for yesterday’s games, and both would continue to do so for some of the tournament’s bigger games. The next time they’ll open will be for tomorrow’s clash between England and Italy. “I’ll definitely be there for that one,” Mr Beal said. He said a few hotel guests took in some of the game at the Turf Bar, but on a whole it was surprisingly quiet. “Ashburton would be about the only place in New Zealand where there wasn’t packed pubs,” he said. If the crowds do start flooding in, it’s possible the Ashburton Trust could open some of its other establishments to cater for the demand. For the record, Mr Carr and Mr Jones were picking Brazil to win the opener – which they did 3-1 – but they were pinning their hopes on Italy to take out the title. That’s the team their business – Continuous Accounting – got in the Guardian competition.

“I thought chimney smoke was a sign your fire was going. It’s actually a sign of wasted heat.” The truth is, except for brief periods, no smoke should be visible from your chimney. I had to learn how to do it, and it takes some effort, but now I just see a heat haze coming from the chimney. It’s worth it – I now use my firewood to heat my home, not annoy my neighbours and pollute the air.

Come on, become an expert like me. Every chimney makes a difference to our air quality and with a bit of effort we can all stop wasting our firewood and clean up our air. Visit the website or facebook page today.

■ MT HUTT SKIFIELD OPENING

In brief

Clear blue skies greet skiers By Erin TaskEr

erin.t@theguardian.co.nz

Mile-wide smiles and plenty of snow greeted around 700 people who headed along to the first day of the ski season at Mt Hutt yesterday. Mt Hutt Ski Area officially opened yesterday morning – almost a week later than originally scheduled – to clear blue skies and a spray of bubbles. Ski area manager James McKenzie officially opened the Summit Six chairlift with a spray of Amisfield bubbles and among the First on the Chair were Christchurch brothers Ben and Simon Yorston who spent the night on the mountain to achieve that honour. They arrived about 10pm on Thursday night with their father Mike and the brothers spent a cold night at the bottom of the Summit chair to reserve the coveted spots and their Mt Hutt First on the Chair t-shirts. They were among an estimated 700 people who flocked to the mountain for the first runs of the season. “It’s a picture perfect day with smiles all round and enthusiastic staff hyped for the start of the season,” Mr McKenzie said yesterday. “It’s an excellent start to the season with plenty of sunshine

Two drivers nabbed Two drivers were caught just an hour apart in separate incidents for driving while forbidden overnight Thursday. Ashburton police stopped a driver at 11.55pm on Thursday night, and then stopped another driver found carrying out the same offence at 12.50am yesterday. Both were charged with driving while forbidden and will appear in Ashburton District Court.

Domestic disputes Ashburton police were called to two domestic related incidents at 1.30pm and 5.30pm on Thursday.

Warrant for arrest An Ashburton woman was arrested on a warrant for arrest in Ashburton at 2pm Thursday.

and great snow on the main trails – and the weather’s looking great for the weekend. “We’ve opened with 45cm at the top of the mountain and 35cm at base, with the latest snowfall two days ago adding to our snowmaking across the trails.” He said it was great to see

many locals up the mountain enjoying opening day, many of whom took the day off work for a day on the slopes. “Our team has been working hard getting the new snow ready for today and they’ve done a fantastic job. Everyone’s excited to be open for 2014.” The mountain opened with

full facilities in the base building and the Summit Six Chair and Exhibition Quad Chair in operation as well as the magic carpet for our learners.” The weather forecast for this weekend is good, but for upto-date snow conditions and information go to www.nzski. com.

A 32-year-old man has died after his vehicle and a truck and trailer unit collided near Tokoroa early yesterday. The crash happened on State Highway 1, 10km south of Tokoroa, about 3.20am, Senior Sergeant Fane Troy said. The truck received moderate damage and the man’s Ford vehicle sustained extensive damage. The driver of the truck was uninjured, Mr Troy said. State Highway One was closed for two hours until one lane was reopened. “From an initial investigation the Ford vehicle has crossed to the incorrect side of the road into gravel before colliding with the truck. - APNZ

Tourist on the loose A Dutch tourist slipped away from immigration custody at Christchurch Airport yesterday, prompting a police search. The 24-year-old escaped from officials at 3.50pm, police said. He was last seen with blood on his head on Avonhead Road near Russley Road. Several police staff including a dog unit attended but were unable to find him. The man injured his head some time after leaving the immigration office, police said. He was described as Caucasian, 168cm tall, slim build and with sandy blond hair. He was wearing cream coloured jeans and a grey checked shirt. Police asked that any sighting of the man was reported to them. - APNZ

■ ASHBURTON DISTRICT CIVIL DEFENCE

Be prepared for emergencies By Erin TaskEr

erin.t@theguardian.co.nz

Recent flooding, high winds and power outages are timely reminders of the importance of being prepared, the district’s Civil Defence boss says. Ashburton District Council emergency management officer Don Geddes said with winter now under way, it was time to make sure your family was ready for whatever the chilly season throws at us. That includes having a fully stocked household emergency

kit. In the event of significant road closures, snow and power cuts, people need to have enough basic necessities to be self-sufficient for at least three days, Mr Geddes said. “If you don’t have a household emergency kit, we advise that you organise one soon to avoid getting caught short,” he said. Being self-sufficient for three days or more includes having stocks of food, water, warm clothing, fuel, alternative cooking and lighting and other

emergency supplies on hand. “Past weather events in Ashburton District have shown us that people are very good about helping each other out so in the case of an emergency, watch out for others and do what you can to assist. Keep an eye on weather warnings and whether you live in town or on a rural property, don’t take unnecessary risks,” Mr Geddes said. “Even in small quantities, snow can be hazardous. It only takes a few centimetres on a road to make driving danger-

ous.” Motorists considering driving over mountain passes in winter are advised to take chains with them in case of snow and to check road conditions and the weather forecast before setting out. “As well as carrying chains for your vehicle, it’s also a good idea to have another emergency kit in the car with a warm blanket, water and first aid kit containing the necessities.” During a power cut the Ashburton District Council recommends using torches rather

■ ST JOSEPH’S SCHOOL

Book sell-off profits to boost rebuild fund More than 30 St Joseph’s School pupils took on the role of book merchants yesterday in a bid to raise money for the rebuild of the St Vincent de Paul Ashburton building. The school’s 32-strong Young Vinnies group, including Harrison Prendergast, 13, (left) and Hannah O’Reilly, 11, held an outdoor book and puzzle sale, taking just 15 minutes to sell out of their items which were donated or no longer used in the school library. With the books and puzzles ranging from 10 cents to $1, the school raised $125.80 as the Young Vinnies coerced fellow pupils into purchasing the many bargains on sale. The earthquake-damaged St Vincent de Paul building is likely to cost $200,000 to be rebuilt.

than candles, but if there is no other option make sure the candles are mounted in stable, noncombustible holders and are well away from anything that could burn. “For general readiness, every household should ideally have a Household Emergency Plan too, including knowing what they are going to do for pets and animals,” Mr Geddes said. For tips on what you should have in an emergency kit, see www.getthru.govt.nz or www. cdemcanterbury.govt.nz.

Pedestrian struck and killed by truck Ports of Auckland have confirmed a truck that hit and killed a pedestrian in Parnell yesterday morning was coming from the port. The Serious Crash Unit is investigating the accident which happened at the intersection of The Strand and Tamaki Drive in Parnell just before 5.30am, police said. Ports of Auckland spokesman Matt Ball confirmed the truck had come from the port, but he did not know which trucking firm was involved. Jogger Simon Aspden witnessed the aftermath of the fatal incident, when he ran past the area about 6am. Mr Aspden said the truck was parked on the side of the road just after the free turn onto the Strand, and a tarpaulin lay on the road in the free turn section behind the truck. - APNZ

■ AUCKLAND GUNS STOLEN

Gun collector ‘targeted’ By reBeCCa Quilliam and derek Cheng A gun collector whose impressive stash of weapons – including semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and vintage guns – were stolen from his Auckland house on Thursday, could have been targeted by the burglars, police say. Along with the guns, which were stored in a locked room, about 5000 rounds of ammunition were also taken. The thieves broke into the home, on Waller Avenue in Bucklands Beach, some time between 9am and 5.30pm through the rear ranchslider, police said.

Counties Manukau East investigations manager Detective Senior Sergeant Darrell Harpur said there was also other property, including jewellery, silverware and alcohol taken. “Of concern is the firearms in the community – obviously they are in the hands of criminals and we will be putting every ounce of effort and resource into recovering those firearms and removing them from the hands of criminals.” The owner was a licensed firearms holder who may have been targeted by the thieves, Mr Harpur said. “It’s a reasonably remote area of the peninsula, with one road

in. It’s not usually a high burglary area.” The owner was allowed to collect as many guns as he wished, so long as they were stored securely away from ammunition, Mr Harpur said. He imagined the collection was worth “tens of thousands of dollars”. Some of the guns would be sought after by criminals, he said. A scene examination was being completed and officers were reinterviewing the owners. “There’s a number of forensic things that we’re undertaking and it’s very early stages but I’m confident that we will, in time,

resolve it.” In 2007, officials had approved the address and location of where the recreational weapons were stored, Mr Harpur said. The burglary was an opportunity to remind the public that if they didn’t need that level of ammunition, not to store it at the property. “And if you do, please ensure that it’s in a really secure area away from view.” A number plate, EAL626, was located at the top of the driveway. It appeared to have been ripped off a vehicle. This plate was cancelled on December 28, last year, police said. - APNZ

Pupil Kelcey Wilson, 6, was lucky enough to be selected by Elgregoe to help with one of his many tricks, needing a mammoth wand to wave over a bucket for a talking parrot to appear. Mr Melrose said while the show was wildly entertaining, it also came with an anti-bullying message and encouraged children to show their true colours and display leadership.

Courier supervisor stole parcels By Cherie Taylor Failing to scan Apple products, making the packages untraceable for staff, a New Zealand Courier supervisor then stole the products, on-selling some and keeping others for herself. Former Blenheim NZ Courier supervisor and mother-of-three, Bronwyn Te Puawaitana King, appeared before Judge Barbara Morris in Masterton District Court on Thursday pleading guilty to theft. The court heard the 39-yearold was supervisor for the national courier service, based in Blenheim when the theft occurred earlier this year. Police prosecutor Sergeant Garry Wilson said King, now of Masterton, had identified which packages coming through for delivery were Apple products. She failed to scan them, making the packages untraceable through the company, keeping some of the stolen iPhones, iPod and iPad products for herself, on-selling others, Mr Wilson said. Defence lawyer Jock Blathwayt said during the period of her offending, his client, now unemployed, had been under considerable “psychological stress”. She had helped investigators work out how she had stolen the products, he said in submission. “Her son was depressed ... she couldn’t resist taking the items ... she accepted responsibility.” King had already paid most of the reparation, about $2000 to her employer. Judge Morris sentenced King to 80 hours’ community work and to pay $920 in reparation. - APNZ

In brief Anzac calendar The history of World War One is being illustrated through a series of limited edition calendars produced by the Featherston Anzac Club. The club is commemorating the centenary of the war, starting with an 18-month calendar beginning on July 2014, reflecting the start of the Great War in 1914, when Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated at Sarajevo. The Great War Centenary Calendar 1914-1918 series will tell the story of the war, through different perspectives. Club president Solitaire Robertson said the first calendar will be from a New Zealand perspective. Ms Robertson, Tim Watson and Dr Bernard Jervis led the project, gathering over 50 illustrations drawn from photographs, newspaper articles, poems, paintings, letters and diaries, to show the causes, course and consequences of the war. - APNZ

■ RAKAIA SCHOOL

Roll rushes towards 200 BY MYLES HUME

MYLES.H@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Rakaia School will create another teaching position and wants another classroom as its roll pushes 200 – a milestone it hasn’t seen since early last century. When principal Mark Ellis arrived nine years ago, the roll stood at 78. Today it has climbed to 196 and returned to numbers it has not enjoyed since the early 1900s. “I think it’s a mixture of things, I like to think there’s confidence in the community and the school and where we are geographically is close to

both Ashburton and Christchurch. House prices, as well as dairy, engineering and local businesses all contribute,” he said. Mr Ellis said he was not the only Mid Canterbury school experiencing such growth with up to five early childhood centres feeding his school now, but it was a good problem to have. He said the school had managed to get “snippets” of extra staffing and would look to create a fixed term teaching position in the junior school for the second half of the year, but having no more classroom space would force

that class into the library. Census figures show Rakaia/Chertsey’s population has grown 13 per cent to 3603 since 2006 and during the past five years Rakaia School has had two new classrooms built, but Mr Ellis wants more. “They may say we can give you more (classrooms) and cap it with an enrolment zone and that is what I would expect, the ministry have always seen our capacity at around 200,” he said. Talk of an enrolment zone had been circulating for a while now, with the school currently working under a

Transport Entitlement Zone (TEZ) for its bus transport. Pupils outside the TEZ are free to enrol but must be dropped at its boundary to be picked up. Mr Ellis hoped if an enrolment zone was imposed it would trace the TEZ, and it would not affect the 17 pupils living outside that area. Mr Ellis said enrolment zones for Dunsandel School and Mount Hutt College were already in place, naturally setting two boundaries for a Rakaia School enrolment zone, but more work would need to be done to complete the zone.

When an Auckland man was charged with breaching a community work sentence, he turned up to court with proof to the contrary. Trouble was, the proof was a fraud. Rahul Navin Singh was sentenced to 60 hours’ community work in June 2012 but was later summoned to the Manukau District Court for breaching the terms and conditions of that sentence. The 22-year-old, who was doing the work at a Manurewa church, produced a time sheet saying he had completed the sentence. But Singh had filled in the sheet himself, passing it off as the work of people from the church. Probation officers discovered what really happened. After a hearing, Singh was found guilty of a charge of forgery, and jailed for four months. Senior police prosecutor Sergeant Paul Watkins, who secured the conviction, told APNZ it was the first time he’d seen anyone forge such documents. - APNZ

Desperate for a beer A man who smashed his way into an Oamaru supermarket, terrifying the night staff with a loaded air rifle because he was desperate for alcohol, has been jailed for three years. Terence Eric Webb, 63, a recovering alcoholic, was in considerable pain and having major difficulties with his pain medication when he “fell by the wayside”, Judge Kevin Phillips said at sentencing in the Dunedin District Court yesterday. Webb had a sawn-off air rifle, a hammer and a fishing knife with him when he went to the Wansbeck St supermarket about 3.45am on January 22. - APNZ

Woman ripped off sister A woman who spent more than $1 million of her sister’s money and used her Pauanui bach to get banks loans has been jailed for four years and three months. Michelle Roberta Innes, 59, appeared for sentence in the Auckland District Court yesterday after earlier being found guilty on 10 Crimes Act charges laid by the Serious Fraud Office. The charges included theft, theft by a person in a special relationship, and theft by a person required to account in relation to theft from her sister. Innes was found guilty of all of those charges in a trial in April this year. - APNZ

Re:START mall reopened A new retail zone with more shipping containers in downtown Christchurch has been opened as the rebuild of the CDB continues to forge ahead. The Re:START mall, which opened in October 2011 with shops and cafes inside shipping containers, has been a lifeline for shoppers to return to the CBD in the wake of the destruction in the February 2011 earthquake. The northern part of Re:START has been moved to the area of the Retail Precinct bounded by Oxford Tce, Cashel St, Plymouth Lane and Lichfield St. - APNZ

■ AUCKLAND HIGH COURT

In brief

Dead boy’s parents upset By Jimmy Ellingham The heartbroken parents of Auckland teenager Stephen Dudley, who died when he was assaulted after rugby training, feel powerless and upset by a justice system they say is protecting the boys responsible for their grief. Brent and Mona Dudley are unhappy that two teenage boys, whose names are permanently suppressed, won’t stand trial for the manslaughter of their 15-year-old son. Stephen died after a school rugby training session on June 6 last year. He was taken to Auckland Hospital after being assaulted by the two teens and died a short time later. Stephen, who was described by his dad as a “true gentleman”, never threw a punch at his attackers.

In the High Court at Auckland yesterday, one of them pleaded guilty to a charge of assault with intent to injure. He was to have faced trial for manslaughter but the Crown said medical evidence concerning an undiagnosed heart condition Stephen suffered from, meant there was no reasonable chance of a conviction on that charge. The teenager was bailed until his sentencing in August, and Justice Mark Cooper ordered a pre-sentence report that looked at home detention as a possible outcome. The judge did not enter a conviction, meaning a discharge without conviction is possible, as happened earlier this year to the other, younger, teenage attacker. That boy pleaded guilty to assault after the manslaughter charge he

faced was also withdrawn. All this has left Mr and Mrs Dudley feeling bewildered and struggling to accept that the attackers are not being charged with Stephen’s death. They do not support name suppression, as it allowed the boys – one of whom plays top level sport – to continue their lives in anonymity and not be associated with their “thuggish” behaviour. “Their mother still gets to kiss them on the head and give them a hug,” Mrs Dudley said yesterday. “I will never have that, not with my elder son.” The Dudleys’ grief has been public knowledge, including a December incident where Mr Dudley was shot in the chest by his wife during an argument between the pair. That was tough on them. “We put on a big brave face

and we go to work and do our thing and we’re still involved in the community,” Mr Dudley said. “But we’re as heartbroken now as we’ve ever been.” Mr Dudley planned to attend the older teenager’s sentencing, look him in the eye and read a victim impact statement. In earlier court appearances, he didn’t believe the teen was remorseful. The Dudleys aren’t even sure if the two teens know the enormity of what they did and the lasting effect Stephen’s death has had on his family. “Our son had so many positive and good things. He offered the world, he was just that special guy,” Mr Dudley said. “It’s the viciousness of what they did. That’s what we want to emphasise,” he said of the attack. - APNZ

Knifepoint robbery Police are hunting two people who robbed a Bay View service station at knife-point on Thursday night. Acting Senior Sergeant Clint Adamson of the Eastern District Command Centre said Bay View Mobil staff were “shaken up and shocked” after a male and female robbed the service station, otherwise known as J Young Motors, on Main North Rd, Bay View, at 8pm, before fleeing the scene in a vehicle. The weapon used in the aggravated robbery was described as a knife or “possibly a machete”, but there had been no injuries, Mr Adamson said. Police were reviewing security camera footage. However, they were unable to confirm what had been taken in the incident. - APNZ

Asking prices high House sellers’ average asking price last month was at record levels, Website Realestate.co.nz says. Buyer interest is still high with traffic numbers up and there were 40,000 available houses for sale nationally by May 31. Sellers’ national average asking price was $483,524, only marginally below the record set in March of $484,263. In Auckland, the average asking price was $685,246, almost the same as the new record set in April of $685,426. In Wellington the average asking price in May was $453,850, while Canterbury came to $442,784. - APNZ

■ ASHBURTON COLLISION

Three-car pile-up at busy intersection A three-car pile-up caused delays near the Methven Highway and Racecourse Road intersection on Thursday night. Emergency services were called to the intersection about 6pm where it is alleged a car travelling towards Methven on the state highway failed to

slow down for queued traffic, ploughing into the back of a vehicle. The domino effect saw another vehicle damaged in the crash. Despite St John ambulance staff attending the scene, an Ashburton police spokesperson

said no one was injured in the crash. The crash followed a horror period on Mid Canterbury roads last week, which saw three people killed in a twocar crash near Rakaia and at least three serious collisions occurred at State Highway

1 intersections. Earlier this week police senior sergeant Scott Banfield said inattention seemed to be a major factor in most of the recent crashes, and urged drivers to pull over if they were going to be distracted by factors such as cellphones or reading maps.

A judge has dismissed a Hamilton woman’s defence that a young boy’s mother gave him alcohol and not her as “beyond belief”. Lucy Teari Winnie Snowden, 25, was found guilty at the Hamilton District Court yesterday of supplying a young boy with alcohol at a skate park following an incident that went viral on YouTube in January. Judge David Ruth dismissed her defence that the boy’s mother had supplied him with alcohol and fined her $1000 plus costs. Before sentencing her, Judge Ruth told the 25-year-old she had let the boy down. “You may not have known him but it must have been patently obvious that he was a child,” he said. - APNZ

$13m win claimed A winning Lotto ticket worth more than $13 million proved to be the perfect cure for its owner’s migraine. The Hastings couple, who did not want to be identified, were regular Lotto players and realised on Sunday they were holding a winner. “I play my own numbers every week, so as soon as I saw the results I knew we’d won something good – I just didn’t know what,” the husband said. “When I realised we’d won First Division I crossed my fingers, hoping I’d picked the right Powerball too - lucky for us, I had. “My wife wasn’t feeling well, so was in bed at the time. It turns out that me bursting through the door screaming, ‘We’ve won $13 million’ was an instant cure,” he said. The winners waited a couple of days before driving to Auckland to claim their prize. “We’re thrilled to be in a position to be able to share our good fortune and help our wider family and our favourite charities.” - APNZ

■ HAKATERE MARAE

Early start to matariki celebrations BY TONI WILLIAMS

TONI.W@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Matariki, or Maori New Year, is a time for remembering people of the past and looking to the future. The official Matariki date is June 28, but members at Hakatere Marae will celebrate it a week earlier. They planned to hold an event that combined traditional values with a modern twist. It was open to anyone to attend. Marae spokesperson Janet Benfell said this year’s celebrations would include a pot luck tea instead of a hangi meal. She said people were asked to bring a dish to share with others. Karaoke was also planned. Matariki was the name of the Pleiades star cluster that appeared in the winter skies in late May or early June. It signalled the beginning of

the Mäori New Year. The cluster consisted of hundreds of stars, but only seven could be seen clearly with the naked eye in Aotearoa New Zealand. It was visible until March when it disappeared for two months over autumn. In early times Matariki was used to celebrate the harvest and prepare the ground for the coming year, it was also a time to pass on traditions to others. Matariki celebrations will be held at the Hakatere Marae, State Highway 1, Fairton on Saturday, June 21. It starts at 5pm. Right - Matariki celebrations last year at Hakatere Marae included a traditional hangi meal watched over by Tim Lima and Darrell Reuben. Celebrations this year will include pot luck dinner.

F

iona Tait reckons joining the Ashburton Parents Centre changed her life. She was due to give birth to her and husband Hamish’s first child when she signed up for the centre’s Baby and You course, eager to learn as much as she could about the journey motherhood was about to take her on. It proved to be a course which opened up a whole new world to her. She’d not long been in Ashburton and had been struggling to meet new people. Originally from Edinburgh, Scotland, Fiona and Hamish met in Christchurch before heading back to Scotland for a few years, getting married and then returning to Ashburton to make a home. Living in a new town and commuting to work in Christchurch, there was little time and few opportunities to meet people. But through the Ashburton Parents Centre that changed. There, she met others in the same boat as her and finally felt like a part of her new community. She and the other mums were all welcoming their first child into the world and were all in the process of learning a new way of life. Baby and You is a course for new mums and covers everything from sleeping and feeding, to first aid and baby massage, and from there Fiona and Callum moved on to the Moving and Munching course and Music and Movement. Together they made a whole new group of friends and four-anda-half years after they first met, they remain in touch. “For me, because I didn’t know a lot of people, I didn’t really have that support network around me when I had my first child, so the Baby and You course was just brilliant,” Fiona said. “I met people and we had a regular coffee group after that finished. I still keep in touch with some of them now.” Parents Centre groups allow

becoming mobile and eating solids. From just a few months old until they head to school, kids can also take part in the weekly Music and Movement classes and the regular playgroups, while other informative classes or guest speakers are often scheduled for parents in the evenings.

Fiona Tait is mother to four-and-a-half-year-old Callum and two-and-a-half-year-old Lewis, and is the president of Ashburton Parents Centre. PhOtO tetsurO MitOMO 110614-tM-045

children to learn and mingle with other children their age, but they’re also beneficial to mums. “Part of it is for the kids, but it’s also for the mums to get out of the house.” “It’s just having somewhere to go and get out of the house when you go from being sort of a career woman, to suddenly being at home with a baby. It can be quite isolating.” When Callum was about six months old Fiona joined the Ashburton Parents Centre committee – her first ever committee. She joined because she wanted to give back to an organisation that had given her so much, and to meet even more people. “I wanted to make sure that other parents embarking on

this journey, and other people like me, who perhaps did not have their own families around them, had somewhere to go to meet like-minded people who could help and support each other.” She’s taken on a variety of roles on that committee over the years and after having her second child, Lewis, a couple of years ago she took on the challenging role of president. Fiona said she had a good, strong committee behind her. Each woman on the committee was a mother and had different demands on their time, but everyone put in what they could. Having never been on a committee before, Fiona said she was naïve when she joined. She didn’t realise what it took to make such an organisation run smoothly. She didn’t realise

they had to raise in excess of $20,000 each year to cover their costs like rent and power. To do that they make grant applications and are grateful for the support of the Lion Foundation through the Ashburton Trust, who help them out every year. They also hold various fundraisers through the year. It’s worth the hard work though because Fiona knows how valuable the service they provide is for parents. There’s something for mums from day one. Before baby is born they host a pregnancy yoga class and a childbirth education class. When baby’s born they hold the Baby and You course to help introduce new mums to motherhood, followed by the Moving and Munching which offers advice and information for when baby starts

he Ashburton Parents Centre’s beginnings 25 years ago were somewhat accidental. An Ashburton mum wrote away wanting information about Play Centre, but her letter arrived at the Parents Centre headquarters instead. They sent information back to that mum and the Ashburton Parents Centre was born. The first committee meeting was held on

120614-tM-107

120614-tM-088

July 11, 1989. Former committee member Debbie Kell had a long association with the centre and said although it grew and changed over the years, the same core principles of parental support and education remained; objectives held up by more than 50 Parents Centres nationwide. Now a life member Debbie has had both a personal and professional involvement with the organisation, including helping implement various nationwide courses, and was one of the original developers of the Parenting with Purpose course in conjunction with the Ministry of Education a decade ago. Debbie, who works as the training consultant, said her work as a Parents Centre volunteer gave her a taste for adult education and provided a heap of opportunities for professional development. Parental support and education is at the core of Parents Centre values. While the courses may have changed over the years the objectives and values have remained. While supporting the parents of the region, over the years the Ashburton centre

has also given back to the wider community. In 2004, the centre funded a new double bed for the Ashburton Hospital maternity ward, to allow for couples to stay overnight after their baby’s birth. In the same year the centre was able to purchase its own indoor playground after two years of fundraising efforts, one of many benefits for children of members and those within the wider community who access the current rooms in the Netherby shopping complex. Back in 1988, the first meeting was at the house of Nick Harrall, who was appointed as joint president along with Diana Jager. The centre worked hard to secure their own “home”. Having their own premises was a huge step forward; made possible due to combined efforts of members and community support, according to Fiona. “We are one of the only few centres nationwide to have this and we will continue to use this facility to its optimum to reach out to many different families with different needs.” Like any organisation, the support of the community and members is crucial for survival. “Since we began 25 years ago, we have always been reliant on the generosity of our volunteers giving up their own time to help others. And over 25 years that adds up to a lot of people. Credit must be given to each and every one of these past volunteers, as without a continuing committee over the years we wouldn’t be where we are today.” Twenty-five years after it began, the objectives of Ashburton Parents Centre remain the same as they were listed in an early document filed from 1991. “We aim to inform, educate and support parents in their roles and to promote positive and healthy attitudes to parenting from antenatal to middle childhood. The Ashburton Parents Centre cares for parents and their children.”

Navy comes to the rescue of dog on log BY REBECCA QUILLIAM A dog which had been washed out to sea was rescued by the Navy, following this week’s wild storm. Crew from the Royal New Zealand Navy Inshore Patrol Vessel HMNZS Hawea spotted the distressed dog floating on a log in Smokehouse Bay, Great Barrier Island, yesterday. Able Seaman Combat Specialist Filipe Latu, noticed the dog, and requested its rescue from the Commanding Officer, Lieutenant Anthony Norris. A rigid-hulled inflatable boat with four crew on board was sent out to the dog. It was taken ashore, where the sailors found a friendly face who knew the dog’s owners, Lieutenant Norris said. He said it was an unusual and unexpected sight. “There was significant debris in the water and on one large log floating in the water was this poor, helpless dog. I would hate to think how long he was there.” - APNZ

■ TEAM NEW ZEALAND

Weeks away from going under The clock is ticking for Team New Zealand. Without an immediate cash injection the syndicate are, in the words of boss Grant Dalton, “gone by the end of the month”. However, Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce has just ruled out any immediate cash injection for Team New Zealand. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and so the syndicate yesterday invited the media to their Halsey St base in a thinly veiled attempt to make one last plea to the New Zealand tax-payer to keep the doors of the syndicate open. Worried the “hysteria” and “negative rhetoric” around the rules for the next America’s Cup is hinging efforts to secure further bridging finance from the Government, Dalton has stated his case to the for the team’s continued involvement in the event. Although Dalton said the syndicate has never been in a better position from a sponsorship point of view, the money he has lined up won’t kick in until February next year once the venues for 35th America’s Cup and qualifying series is known. So Team New Zealand is reliant on government funds getting them through to February. At a media conference yesterday afternoon, Mr Joyce ruled out any immediate cash injection. He said he wanted to see the sponsors front up first, Newstalk ZB reported. Dalton says he has private money lined up to help tide them over in the meantime, but those donors aren’t willing to hand over a cheque until the Government is on board.

Team New Zealand boss Grant Dalton.

While privately Dalton says the Government have been receptive to continuing their investment in Team New Zealand, they’re nervous about the public backlash in election year. So it rests on Dalton’s shoulders to try to convince the New Zealand taxpayer it will be money well spent. But with Oracle Team USA widely criticised for tabling a protocol stacked in their favour, the task of trying to convince New Zealanders entering the 35th America’s Cup is a worthwhile endeavour has become all the more difficult. The general reaction from Kiwi fans was ‘tell Oracle to go and get stuffed’. That approach won’t hurt Oracle, it will only hurt Team New

Zealand, says Dalton. He claims the protocol isn’t as bad as some, including the Herald, have been suggesting. “It isn’t that bad. These guys aren’t doing us any favours, let’s be realistic about that -- it is the America’s Cup. But it isn’t that bad,” he said. Dalton points out the task facing them in the last campaign was an even steeper mountain to climb. In 2010 when the protocol for the 34th America’s Cup was released, the extent of Dean Barker’s multihull experience was sailing a Hobie catamaran on his Christmas holidays; they had no firm commitment from sponsors; Team New Zealand didn’t have a design team with multihull exper-

tise, while Oracle had just won the America’s Cup in a giant wing-sailed multihull. “We don’t see the odds being stacked anything like they were last time. We were starting from absolute scratch, we’d never even seen a wingsail, let alone designed one. “So the project doesn’t worry us at all, there’s nothing in the Protocol that scares us off,” said Dalton. “In many respects we’re strong than we have ever been. We’re operational, we’re sound, we’ve got a lot of sponsor interest. But we have a serious cash flow issue and we have a New Zealand public that is critically important to us.” Dalton also played up the

importance of yachting in this country, pointing out New Zealand’s long association with the America’s Cup and the positive spin-off that has had for the marine industry and the Auckland waterfront. “The first memory I have is Clive Roberts and Chris Bouzaid -- Heligoland 1969, Rainbow II [in the One Ton Cup] -- it started there for my generation and it’s grown through Laurie Davidson, Bruce Farr, Peter Blake. All that history brings us to this point. “If we go, there ain’t no coming back. The start-up price of a team from scratch is so astronomical that it will never happen in this country.” - APNZ

John Banks: ‘It’s a tragedy but no regrets’ By AdAm Bennett The events leading to the end of John Banks’ Parliamentary career yesterday have been “a tragedy” but he has no regrets, remains upbeat and is glad to be alive, Act’s departing Epsom MP says. Mr Banks’ resignation as an MP after he was found guilty of electoral finance fraud became official yesterday. “It’s not the way I would have wanted to have left but if you’re going to have a very long, very full commercial life and a very long and very full political life then you’re going to have rainy days and in recent months the rain has been raining,” he told

NewsTalkZB political editor Barry Soper this morning. “It’s a tragedy but no regrets and I’m not a victim, we just look forward and we keep going.” In an apparent reference to those listed in obituaries yesterday morning, he said: “There’s a lot of people alphabetically listed on the back page of the newspapers today that wish they were me”. Much of Mr Banks’ term in Parliament as Act’s sole MP has been marred by the initial allegations of electoral fraud related to his failed 2010 bid for the Auckland supercity mayoralty and his subsequent trial and guilty verdict on charges

of knowingly filing a false electoral return. However, he didn’t regret his return to national politics three years ago. “What a great honour and what a great experience it has been for me to work with an outstanding individual like John Key and his kitchen cabinet in particular and generally the cabinet of the National Party and my coalition friends. “I’ve enjoyed it very much. Of course it’s been tough and I’ve had the bad times and bad days but overall it’s an been an experience that I could never have expected again and I got, which was great.” Politics was “a noble profession and something to be proud

of and I’m grateful for the opportunity”. Mr Banks’ sentencing and the issue of whether he will be convicted will be considered by the High Court on August 1. Mr Banks’ resignation would automatically trigger a byelection unless Parliament passes a motion with 75 per cent majority to prevent that. The National Government will introduce the motion next week and Labour, which until now remained uncommitted, this morning said it would support it. Leader David Cunliffe said that at a special caucus meeting earlier this week it was decided Labour would not force the bye-

lection “because it is not in the public interest”. However he wanted to mark Mr Banks’ last day as an MP by calling on Mr Key to support Labour’s members bill to scrap the coat-tailing provision under which Act had retained Epsom. “Act’s final foray into Parliament was an abject failure. The deal done by John Key and John Banks in a bid to bring Don Brash back into Parliament backfired spectacularly. John Banks has been nothing but an embarrassment for National this Parliamentary term. “National needs to end the manipulation of the electoral system in Epsom – voters there have had enough.” - APNZ

Your waste is this man’s passion “T

here’s nothing I don’t like about this job,” says the Ashburton Resource Recovery Park’s new site supervisor. Glen Sole has overseen a number of changes since taking up the position in March, including installing wheelie bins at satellite recycling sites around Mid Canterbury. On the day the Guardian visits there is three days of kerbside collection and other rubbish which has accumulated at the park, due to a floor-repair job having created a bottleneck. General waste through the park totals 900,000 kilograms per month, a figure which includes all the black kerbside collection bags from around Mid Canterbury and the rubbish dumped by park visitors at the site. The general waste is compacted at the park before being loaded into pods for transport to Kate Valley. The floor-repair job and consequent rubbish build-up has meant a weekend at work for Mr Sole, who has had only five days off work since March. “That’s what you have to do when you run a business though, pick up the shortfall. It doesn’t bother me, I love it.” The Timaru dad-of-two will move to Ashburton soon, to be closer to his workplace. A workplace accident in 1998 led Mr Sole down a new career path. While on a demolition site in Timaru, he fell 10 metres and landed on his feet. He shattered his lower left leg, smashed his elbow and sheared the backs off four vertebrae discs. He was partially paralysed, but recovered. However, his leg had to later be amputated below the knee, and he today wears a prosthetic limb. The accident meant numerous surgeries and Mr Sole took advantage of having time off work to train in human resource management, undertaking a diploma. He developed a keen interest in workplace safety, and became a health and safety co-ordinator for Talley’s. The job at the Ashburton Resource Recovery Park has given him a whole new challenge. There are 11 full and part-time staff and the park processes huge volumes of recyclable materials each year in addition to the general waste. Installing wheelie bins at Mid Canterbury’s 15 satellite sites has been among new initiatives Mr Sole has introduced. Prior to the introduction of the wheelie bins, the sites used wooden cubes, which were a messy way of collecting recyclables. “All they are is a vermin trap,” he said. Mr Sole is a wheelie bin fan. He is following the current submission process over

wheelie bins closely, and would like to see them replace the black kerbside collection bags used by the Ashburton District Council. Rubbish from wheelie bins would come into the park already partially compacted, so would be much tidier once on site and easier to complete compaction into the pods. He and fellow staff have be-

come more proactive in salvaging recyclable material from general waste which people drop off at the dump and the amount of metal and wood in particular going into recycling streams had increased. Mr Sole was making a feature of the shop at the park and had lowered prices. He said the things people

dumped would amaze many. Items in the shop generally went for just $1 or $2, and he had recently sold a $795 new Trelise Cooper dress with the price tag still on it. He is holding a competition to come up with a name for the shop and wants to promote its benefits to Mid Cantabrians. As well as general bric-a-brac,

clothing and other op-shop-type items, the shop sold paint which has been recovered or dropped off. Staff were licensed chemical handlers of such items. “A lot of people don’t realise you can dump re-useable goods here for nothing, our friendly staff will help you decide what is re-useable and what is rubbish,” Mr Sole said.

■ NETBALL

■ LEAGUE

Highs, lows for Rasmussen It has been a week of emotional extremes for Magic midcourter Grace Rasmussen. The excitement of last weekend’s last-gasp win over the Swifts to secure a preliminary final showdown with the Firebirds quickly gave way to disappointment for Rasmussen, who arrived back from Sydney to the news she had missed out on a place in the Silver Ferns team for the Commonwealth Games. Playing some of the best netball of her career after making the shift to the Magic this season, Rasmussen has been New Zealand’s in-form wing attack in the ANZ Championship. But in a tightly-run contest for Ferns midcourt spots, the national selectors looked past Rasmussen’s efforts this year and plumped for incumbent Shannon Francois and returning mother Liana Leota. It has made for an emotionally trying start to week two of the transtasman league playoffs for the former Fern, but Rasmussen insists with the support of her teammates and coach Julie Fitzgerald, she has been able to move on and quickly turn her focus to Monday night’s match against the Firebirds. “With the naming of the Silver Ferns I was really disappointed at the beginning of the week, particularly coming back

Grace Rasmussen

from a great win in Sydney, it was a bit of a buzz killer,” said a surprisingly upbeat Rasmussen. “But I’ve dealt with it and I’ll move on. I really want to take that disappointment and channel it into positive energy for Monday’s final.” You couldn’t blame Rasmussen if she were to be bitter about missing out on the team for Glasgow. The 26-year-old has been the rock in the under-rated Magic attack end, and one of their most consistent players this season, picking up the ANZ Championship’s “golden bib” award for the best-performing

midcourter - statistically speaking - on five occasions. To be overlooked in favour of Leota, a player that has only one full game of transtasman league netball under her belt and freely admits she is still a long way off full fitness after the birth of her third child, must be pretty hard to swallow. However Rasmussen finds some consolation in the fact the grounds for her non-selection were largely beyond her control. She said the selectors were clearly looking for a different style to what she offers. “I think I played some of the best netball of my career

this season, and the stats have shown it. So I feel I have done everything I can do and at the end of the day you can’t control what the selectors want. I have no regrets and I think I’ve proven myself this season.” Rasmussen said she hopes to get the opportunity to prove her worth in the Silver Ferns environment in the end of year tests against Australia and England. An ANZ Championship winners medal would also be a pretty nice consolation prize for Rasmussen. The Magic expect an allout scrap for a spot in the title decider against the Vixens in Melbourne on Monday. Last week’s tense one-goal win over the heavily favoured Swifts has re-instilled a lot of belief in the Waikato-Bay of Plenty side, after a run of losses heading into the playoffs. It wasn’t always a pretty performance, but the Magic managed to hang in there and nail their opportunities when it mattered. Rasmussen said her side will need to produce a similarly gritty performance against the Firebirds on Monday. “Julie has reinforced to us quite a bit in training that a win doesn’t necessarily come in the first, second or third quarter, it is often a grind.” - APNZ

■ OPINION

Starting your day with football I

f you’re a sports-head, then right now you must be at the point of having to carefully allot your telly time; there’s so much going on that a long holiday could seem like a popular option, just so you could perch yourself in front of the box and watch wall-to-wall sport. Start your day with a nice breakfast of Ronaldo, Messi and Rooney (oh, and the Aussies should we be supporting them?), and just carry on from there. In fact you can completely bookend your day, with the Black Caps actually doing good things on tour, with Mark Craig (who?) leading the way against the Calypso Kings; as well as an eight-wicket bag on debut, he hit a six with his first ball in test cricket, not many have achieved that particular milestone. Somewhere in between you can catch Richie and the boys intent on making reparations for their misdeeds in the first test (they did win, didn’t they?) as they tackle a new-look Pommy side in the superb confines of Forsyth Barr Stadium tonight.

That right there is the stadium of the future, and should be the model Christchurch is looking at, not some zillion-dollar monstrosity that will be filled to capacity once (possibly twice, at a pinch) a year. Yes I know that’s how sports stadia work, you build them big and hope you can financially stumble through year after year after year, but in case anybody in charge has forgotten, Christchurch is somewhat of a special case, and there is even less than the usual millions available to consider any future development. The NBA is just brilliant right now - the Spurs have taken LeBron and his uber-star Miami mates on with all guns blazing, and have forged a handy lead in the finals. In game three they came out blazing in the first fifteen minutes; so much so that their coach, who is supposed to say ‘Yeah but we can improve plenty from here’, actually said ‘Nobody will repeat that start to a match, ever’. Not a bad way to fill in a couple of hours in the daytime after

Steve Devereux MY SHOUT

party central in Brazil has died down for a bit. The Black Sticks (male and female) are battling away trying to at least maintain their world standings (the girls SHOULD have beaten Aussie), Lydia is inching towards world domination, the cyclists are inching towards another episode of Le Tour, and its all just an entree, because on the horizon looms Glasgow 2014, where we can actually win stuff. But there’s always a fly in the bucket of ointment, isn’t there. The NRL has done it for decades, since the men from the Tigers were rather too closely associated with blokes who carried machine guns to work. League has survived players, fans and entire clubs seemingly

doing their utmost to drag their sport into the mire, but more than survive, the game is thriving and going constantly forward. Cricket is in the throes of turmoil that will see plenty of dirt emerge in the near future. But the focus now is on football and basketball. One has a demented, racist club owner sueing the NBA for a billion dollars while trying to sell the Clippers for $2 billion, which led to an interview with the CEO that should have been all about the showcase game going on in the background but instead was all about Mr Sterling and his crazed antics. Only in America. The other has its own CEO Sepp Blatter trying to find allies to re-elect him for yet another term at the top, all the while deflecting accusations that many millions of dollars spent getting the next footballing extravaganza to the highly unlikely venue of Qatar might just have been, er, diverted. Only in - well, wherever there are human beings in charge.

Andrew McFadden

Experience shapes McFadden’s approach Nothing came easy for Andrew McFadden during his sevenyear, 100-game first grade playing career. The 36-year-old Warriors coach admits playing for Canberra, Parramatta, and Melbourne was no fairytale ride and nothing came without constant hard work and dedication. Experiencing the rollercoaster ride of an NRL career has shaped McFadden’s approach to coaching and given him the ability to relate to and mentor many of the Warriors’ young stars. “My experiences as a player have definitely helped me to be the coach that I am. I wasn’t one of those guys that everything happened easily for. “Especially in first grade, I had to really work hard at my game and I probably didn’t reach any great heights as a player. I struggled with a lot of the things these players struggle with now,” McFadden said. “I’m fully aware of the pressures and expectation of a first grade footballer and that helps me deal with the young ones.” Coming through the Raiders system as a promising junior during the Green Machine’s glory days, McFadden found himself battling to fulfil expectations once he was thrust into grade in 1997, as a replacement for halfback Ricky Stuart. Playing alongside five-eighth Laurie Daley was a dream come true but trying to live up to the standards set by his new halves partner and other legends like Bradley Clyde, Brett Mullins and then coach Mal Meninga, was a constant struggle. Overseeing Warriors halfback Shaun Johnson’s development brings back many memories for McFadden, and while he demands excellence and consistency from the 23-yearold playmaker and the team’s other young guns, he is patient and sympathetic to their situation. - APNZ

Concussion a threat to All Blacks By Gregor Paul As much as the All Blacks want to win tonight, for some in their camp the bigger hope is getting 23 men safely out of Dunedin without incurring any major blows to the head. Concussion is as much, if not more, of a threat to the All Blacks, than any opponent. Richie McCaw has been troubled by concussion way more than he has any defensive blitz or attacking trickery. Kieran Read was unstoppable last year, but two successive blows to the head in Super Rugby have meant he’s barely got going in 2014. The ability of a head knock to inflict lasting damage is unparalleled and almost half of tonight’s starting team have, in

the past few years, endured compulsory stand-downs after failing concussion tests. Some, such as McCaw, Read and Conrad Smith, have endured multiple blows to the head which is why administrators around the world have increased efforts in the past few weeks to further protect the players. Tonight’s test will be played under new rules that will allow teams up to 10 minutes to assess players they suspect may have concussion. Since 2012 the IRB has been trialling its sideline test which has been a major factor in seeing the number of concussed players return to the field drop from 56 per cent to 13 per cent. Determined to drive that number down to zero - the IRB

have increased from five minutes the length of time a player can be temporarily replaced while medics try to determine his or her condition. It’s a move welcomed by All Black doctor Tony Page who says the extension is another step in the right direction of accentuating the seriousness of any injury relating to the brain. “We have a lot of head knocks each week but we generally wouldn’t have a concussion every week,” says Page. “Yes I do certainly feel relief. Probably like a parent watching that they play this game and they are okay. But that’s not just concussion.” The All Blacks are doing what they can internally to promote a strong culture of honesty and player responsibility in relation

to concussion. Page is confident players don’t withhold information about head knocks or try to cheat the system that tests them. He says that often his attention is alerted during a game to a potential concussion casualty by one of the other players. There is a culture of selfpolicing - of mates looking out for mates - which management endorse and encourage because in the past month reminders of the seriousness of head knocks have been everywhere. Former Chiefs captain Craig Clarke was forced to retire after failing to recover from a major blow to the head he sustained in January. Former Kiwi and England rugby player Shontayne Hape revealed the harrowing story

behind his premature retirement - and how he’s fortunate to be alive after enduring sustained damage to his brain. And then of course there has been the battle fought by Read. The past month has also shown both how much progress has been made in improving attitudes towards concussion and how much work still has to be done. The All Blacks withdrew Read from the first test the instant he complained of concussion symptoms and this week, the Australian Rugby Union appointed a concussion specialist. The data coming out of England, they conduct extensive research every year, proves that concussion is becoming more prevalent.  - APNZ

Dampney the Barbarian By Jonathan Leask

Jonathan.l@theguardian.co.nz

Mid Canterbury captain and 2013 Heartland player of the year Jon Dampney has been selected to play for the New Zealand Barbarians for their match against the Highlanders. The day the Barbarians-Highlanders game was announced in May, Dampney received a phone call. “I read about the game in the morning and next thing I had a phone call about playing,” Dampney said. “Lucky I had read it or I wouldn’t have believed the voice message and thought someone was pulling my leg.” The Barbarians, coached by Southland Stags coach Brad Mooar, will meet the Highlanders at Rugby Park Stadium, Invercargill on Friday June 20 with the Ashburton Trust Mid Canterbury captain in the mix.

 Like traditional Barbarian teams, there is likely to be an international flavour to the selection along with a number of Stags and players from other New Zealand provinces. The final squad is yet to be announced but Dampney will play alongside topcalibre recruits such as Rico Gear, Seilala Mapusua and the Southland pair of Jason Rutledge and David Hall - with former All Black Andrew Hore also a distinct possibility. Dampney will have two games in 24 hours as after Baabaas game he will catch an early morning flight back to turn out for an injury hit Southern against Hampstead - on a day which is also his birthday. The Barbarians outing adds to what is already shaping as a big year for the 30-year-old with the Ranfurly Shield challenge, the Meads Cup defence and he is set to become a father with partner Hayley Bennett.

Junior Boks ready for test

Jon Dampney

They’re locking horns again. Tomorrow night New Zealand and South Africa meet in the Junior World Championship semifinal, just nine days after the Junior Boks cleaned out the hosts with a clinical 33-24 win in pool play. South Africa now have three JWC wins in a row against the New Zealand Under 20s, but they are acutely aware this will count for little come kick-off. South African coach Dawie Theron laughed when asked if his charges were happy to assume the favourites’ tag after being top qualifiers. “It’s still in New Zealand against New Zealand. We know how much is riding on it for them. We were in a similar situation when the tournament was in South Africa,” he said. “This is a massive test again. We shift our minds to a two-test series. It’s unfortunate we can’t meet in

different circumstances (that is, the final) but that’s the way it is.” Theron’s injury problems were abating, though there was no word on the health of fullback Jesse Kriel, who copped a knock at the end of the first half in the bruising 21-8 victory over Samoa. Other than Simon Hickey’s exit with an ankle injury, New Zealand have a full complement from which to choose, though lock James Tucker sat out yesterday’s training as a precaution. Assistant coach Leon MacDonald says there will be some adjustment tactically from the previous clash, but he is generally happy with the attacking output of what is a potentially exciting back division. “They all love running the ball, but it’s about getting that decision-making right.”  - APNZ

In brief Cartels win too Drug cartels in Peru and Bolivia, two of the world’s top producers of cocaine, are drooling over the bountiful market being served up next door by the World Cup in Brazil. They are sending huge amounts of the drug to their giant South American neighbour, where the world’s premier sporting event started yesterday. Since the start of the year there has been a huge increase in the number of so-called “drug flights” by small planes from Peru carrying cocaine to Bolivia. From there, it is transported over land to Brazil. Secret landing strips sprout like mushrooms in the Peruvian valleys where coca leaves are produced. From there, planes carrying up to 300 kilos of cocaine are taking off frequently, authorities say. - AAP

Hosts with the most

Vidal available? Midfield playmaker Arturo Vidal could make an earlier than expected comeback from injury to play in Chile’s World Cup opener against Australia. Vidal, who had knee surgery last month, practised well this week, leading coach Jorge Sampaoli to say it was “highly likely” the Juventus star would be fit before Chile’s game against the lowest-ranked team in the tournament. Most of the pre-tournament attention in Group B has focused on the 2010 finalists Spain and Netherlands, but the way the Chileans have risen steadily in the rankings has many pundits — even Brazil great Pele — picking them to progress out of the group. - AP

But they need to put the bonus flap, and a disappointing three losses at the last World Cup, behind them and concentrate on Mexico. - AP

Neymar showed why he is carrying Brazil’s hopes at the World Cup, scoring twice yesterday to help the underwhelming hosts escape a disappointing start to the tournament. With Brazil struggling and down a goal against a spirited Croatian team, Neymar came through to lead his team to a 3-1 win in the opening match, scoring once in each half. The killer goal to make the score 2-1 was a hotly contested penalty awarded by Japanese referee

Yuichi Nishimura. “Things weren’t going well,” he said. “The first match is always difficult, we were anxious, we were nervous. I’m glad I was able to get the goals we needed at the time we needed them.” “He is a special player and we know that,” Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said. “And he needs to know that we know that.” Brazil got off to a slow start in its home tournament.

own net while trying to clear a low cross by Ivica Olic in the 11th minute, stunning the crowd of more than 62,100 packing the Itaquerao Stadium. But Neymar equalised in the 29th, firing a perfectly placed low shot that went in off the post. He said he didn’t hit the ball perfectly, “but it went in, it’s all that matters.” “It’s important to start these tournaments on the right foot, with a victory,” said Neymar. “I’m happy that I got to score, but the entire team deserves credit. We maintained our calm and showed we could battle back.” The game turned on a controversial penalty awarded by Nishimura in the second half after striker Fred went down inside the area under minimal contact from defender Dejan Lovren. Neymar scored from the spot in the 71st minute, getting his 33rd goal with Brazil. Croatia goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa nearly saved Neymar’s shot, but it was struck hard enough to deflect into the net. The Croatians were furious. “If that was a penalty, we should be playing basketball. Those kinds of fouls are penalised there,” Croatia coach Niko

Kovac said. “That is shameful, this is not a World Cup referee. He had one kind of criteria for them and another for us. The rules were not the same,” Kovac said. As Croatia searched desperately for an equaliser, Oscar added to the lead in the first minute of injury time with a toe poke from just outside the penalty area. A draw would have been a huge disappointment for Brazil, which had won its opening match the last eight times and is overwhelming favourite to win the competition. “The team didn’t give up,” Brazil defender David Luiz said “We knew it would be hard but we played well and got that first goal and then the victory.” The tournament finally got underway as planned after months of talk about the preparation problems that plagued Brazil since it was picked as host seven years ago. The troubled Itaquerao, which wasn’t fully finished for the opener, held up without major setbacks to fans or the match itself, although part of the lights atop the pitch went out a few times for brief periods in the first half. - AAP

Socceroos not weighing in on ref Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou refused to weigh in on the refereeing drama of the World Cup’s opening game, despite it possibly becoming a big factor in Australia’s clash with Chile later today. The showpiece kicked off in controversy yesterday after Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura awarded a penalty that helped hosts Brazil start their campaign with a 3-1 win over Croatia in Sao Paulo. Nishimura ruled Fred had been brought down in the box however, replays showed there had been minimal contact.

In the wake of the controversy there are suggestions referees may be gun shy when it comes to making similar decisions during the rest of the tournament. Socceroos striker Tim Cahill said he was expecting there to be shirt-pulling and nudging by the Chileans in the box during their crucial first clash in Cuiaba today. But Postecoglou wouldn’t get drawn into the matter. “All the teams have had a visit from the officials and they’ve told every country what they’re looking for, so we’re aware of what they’re looking at,” Postecoglou said. “The referees have

got their job, we’ve got ours so we won’t sit there and try and preempt what may or may not happen. “We’ve been told the things that are going to be highlighted at this World Cup and we’ll deal with it accordingly.” While the Chileans may look to nullify Cahill’s aerial advantage Postecoglou said he wasn’t Australia’s only threat. “We’ve got somebody there who’s very threatening and Timmy’s looked very sharp. But I don’t think that’s our only avenue for goal,” Postecoglou said. “We’re working on a few

things and we certainly believe we can be a threat in other areas. “But there’s no doubt they’re going to have to pay attention to Timmy because if he does get half a chance in the box, particularly in the air, he can head it in from any position. So we’ll use that.” Postecoglou emphasised there were no concerns over Mark Bresciano’s fitness and indicated the veteran midfielder would start. The 34-year-old has been battling a back complaint in the lead up to the Socceroos’ campaign opener. “Absolutely (he’s right

to start),” Postecoglou said. “He’s trained really well and more important he’s recovered from training really well. So he’s ready to go. I think he’s really looking forward to it, he’s got that steely look in his eye and he’s ready to play. Meanwhile, FIFA has ordered the Socceroos to change their strip for their opening match. They were due to wear the traditional gold shirt and green shorts. But they will now play in gold shorts, with the governing body ruling the green would have clashed with Chile’s blue shorts. - AAP

■ RIFLE SHOOTING

50 years of Coronation shooting By Jonathan Leask

Jonathan.l@theguardian.co.nz

The mysterious mint green building on West Street marks its 50th anniversary this weekend. Countless Ashburtonians will have passed the facility unaware of what goes on inside the distinctively-coloured building on State Highway that is synonymous with regular shootings. It has been the home of smallbore shooting for 50 years. The Coronation Target Shooting Club range was completed in 1964 to be the new home of the then 10-year-old club. Prior to its completion the club, first known as the Ashburton Home Service Members’ Rifle Club (HSA), had facilities at Crum’s Brick Yard on Creek Road. During World War Two, many of the men who remained behind underwent basic military training and were shown how to use rifles. In 1953 the club wished to become independent of the HSA, and purchased the range. They needed a new name and given it was the year of Queen Elizabeth II’s ascension to the throne, the Coronation Rifle Club was born. They spent 10 years on Creek Road before the club signed a lease for the land on West Street in 1961. After a fitting farewell, the old site was demolished in 1961, but with the new facility taking three years of volunteer work to complete, the club temporarily shot at the Lynnford Range until moving into their new home on June 13, 1964.

The range initially had room for eight shooters, with a dirt floor between the mound and the targets, sitting about two feet lower than the floor level of the building. Dedicated work from successive committees and volunteers has seen plenty of up-grades, including the enforced demise of the open fire in the lounge area, due to new clean air regulations. It burned the backs of members’ legs for 48 years but now a pellet fire takes its place. The land initially leased from New Zealand Railways, in 1961, was finally purchased and secured in December 1995. The range can now hold 14 shooters at once, on a ground and mezzanine floor arrangement, comfortably accommodating upwards of 60 shooters competing at an event. During the season the range hosts Monday and Tuesday night club nights for Coronation seniors and juniors respectively. All of the Ashburton County Smallbore Rifle Association meetings, representative fixtures, inter-club finals and annual championships are held there. They also see Ashburton College students once a week for a Target Shooting elective as part of the physical education course. The range is also home for the Ashburton Plainsmen shooting team, who are the current Division One Champions in the Target Shooting New Zealand National District Championships. After a period of low membership in the early 2000s, the club has slowly built back up again. Current president, Dean Smith, is a relatively new mem-

ber but has seen numbers treble in his time with the club. “Membership is going mental at the moment,” Smith said. “There were about 10 members when I first signed up and now we have over 30 and plenty

of other regular casual members.” Most of those are expected along today. The anniversary celebrations commence this afternoon with a fun novelty shoot, which will showcase the history of the club

and of shooting equipment and styles, with an afternoon tea provided once the shooting has been completed. In the evening the dinner and formalities will be at the Ashburton Hotel.

Intermediate grade big finale

BY JONATHAN LEASK

JONATHAN.L@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

A nagging right foot injury forced Hayden Roulston to withdraw from the fifth stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné yesterday. The sore right foot had him compensating with his left leg and it affected his left achilles tendon. Not wanting to take any risk, with some potentially bigger racing on the horizon, Roulston abandoned the Critérium du Dauphiné leaving Trek with five riders. A large crash just 14 kilometres into the race caused problems for several teams, with several riders being brought down and Roulston was tangled up in the action and subsequently abandoned the race. Simon Spilak (Katusha) soloed to victory on stage but defending Tour de France champion, Chris Froome (Team Sky), finished safely in the bunch to keep the yellow jersey – despite the best efforts of Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo) to cut his lead on the undulating course. Froome holds a 12 second advantage on Contador with three stages to go. Roulston’s teammate Haimar Zubeldia remains in contention in the general classification in seventh, 1.22 minutes behind Froome. Roulston’s injury comes three weeks out from the start of the Tour de France, with Trek still to announce their line-up for the prestigious race.

Saturday, June 14, 2014

With your contribution and my contribution the people will live. National Volunteer Week (NVW) is co-ordinated annually by Volunteering New Zealand (VNZ). Celebrations and events are held across the country to recognise the invaluable contribution made by volunteers in Aotearoa. The week is New Zealand’s largest celebration of volunteering and civic participation, and will be held this year on 15 - 21 June 2014. Each year VNZ announces the theme and provides a basic resource kit to assist its member organisations with local and organisational celebrations. VNZ continues to use traditional Te Reo Mãori whakatauki for the

inspiration of the sector’s campaign themes. We recognise the richness and depth of Te Reo and we enjoy using our country’s indigenous language for our volunteer celebrations. This year, the resource kit will be delivered in the form of an online kete (basket). The theme for National Volunteer Week 2014 is: “Naku te rourou nau te rourou ka ora ai te tangata.” Translated as “With your contribution and my contribution the people will live.” The whakatauki (Mãori proverb) refers to co-operation and the combination of resources to get ahead. It suggests that if we pool our ideas, with equal respect for all parties, we will get a superior result and everyone will benefit. VNZ has selected this proverb to encourage individuals to bring together their own skills, knowledge, and experience to share via volunteering and benefit the wider community. The whakatauki refers to the three Baskets of Knowledge in Mãori legend. Human life and knowledge were said to originate in the realm of Ranginui, the sky father. In one tradition, the

god Tãne climbed to the citadel Te Tihi-o-Manono in the highest of the 12 heavens. There he received the three baskets of knowledge: te kete-tuauri (basket of darkness), te kete-tuatea (basket of light) and te kete-aronui (basket of pursuit). There are several interpretations of what each basket represents. For this campaign, VNZ encourages promotion of these key themes inspired by the baskets from the whakatauki: • Kete-tuauri, basket of darkness: Volunteering provides outlets for people to grow, feel valued and contribute to communities with the experience they seek and share. • Kete-tuatea, basket of light: Volunteering provides a way to contribute your skills and allow organisations to benefit from volunteers. • Kete-aronui, basket of pursuit: Volunteering provides the energy for people to strive for goals and build stronger communities for our future generations.

“I have been a Victim Support volunteer for 9 years. After doing the initial training and getting some experience to see if this was for me or not I extended my training by completing homicide, domestic violence, family violence and suicide/bereavement specialist training. I do Victim Support volunteer work as I believe every victim has rights and should not have to go through a traumatic time in their life alone when they have not brought this trauma upon themselves. Most victims are the result of a criminal act having been committed against them or an accident. Many victims only require initial support, for others it may be long term. Having someone who is not emotionally tied to the incident, who is able to listen and give good

NVW 2014 embraces the notion of joining volunteers, volunteer managers, volunteer organisations and communities together and sharing their own baskets of knowledge with each other and communities. Volunteer-involving organisations and stakeholders are encouraged to use the whakataukī to promote an aspect of volunteering that links to the specific work in their area. The community and voluntary sector is a powerful social network bringing people together to develop strong communities and active citizenship. Every day volunteers contribute to New Zealand society in the arts, health care, victim support, conservation, sport, education, social services and pro-bono work. By celebrating the people involved in volunteering and the contributions they bring, we are acknowledging the efforts of a vast humming web of connections, opportunities and generous spirit working together for our communities. Volunteering Mid & South Canterbury is launching an online volunteer matching database during National Volunteer Week. www.volmsc.org.nz

helpful information can assist them through a traumatic time, so they can gain control of their lives again. Through training, support and advice from the Service Coordinator we learn of the many services that are available to help victims. As a volunteer I assess their needs and if the victim wishes I can give them the contact details for the relevant service. It is always up to the victim to make the next step and contact that service. Everybody is affected differently and their ability to cope differs. Every case is unique. It is rewarding to assist people affected by crime/accident to have their rights met and to get their life back.” GEM

Some of the money from Karma Cola sales was used last year to build a bridge, which meant that for the first time the people of Boma could get vehicles to their village.

Fast changing business requirements create pressure on systems that were created for a previous environment. Manual workarounds outside of existing systems are often introduced to deal with changes but this is inefficient and can create potential financial risk. It is the lack of flexibility that is forcing business leaders towards software solutions.

Mobile payments developer Pushpay says it is looking to carry out an NZAX compliance listing next month. The Auckland-based company said it would raise $9 million through a private share issue, at $1 a share, prior to the listing. The share issue was fully underwritten Christopher and Banks Private Equity, an investment vehicle run by the wealthy Huljich family, the firm said. Aaron Bhatnagar, Pushpay’s head of communications, said the $9 million would be raised from a “variety of investors” including significant funds from Christopher Banks Private Equity and Alliance Equities, the Bhatnagar family’s investment vehicle. “We anticipate 75 or more investors by listing,” he said. The company said it would have a total of 50,000 shares following the private share issue, valuing the business at $50 million.

Schools are progressing Stu Oldham

EDITOR

P

roactive schools seem to be making progress in dealing with problematic pupils without excluding them from the classroom. Broad-brush Education Ministry figures suggest there has been a significant drop in the number of stand-downs, suspensions and exclusions at 23 Mid Canterbury schools since 2008. A stand-down is where the principal removes a pupil from school for up to five days, while a suspension is removal by the board of trustees. An exclusion or expulsion can result. These are the blunt-force tools a school can use to clearly show a pupil’s behaviour will not be tolerated. They are, and should always have been, the last resort. On first glance, the trend from triple-digit figures to low doubledigit ones suggest schools are less likely than before to take a direct, punitive approach. But, even as decisions to standdown, suspend or exclude have dropped the issues that forced schools’ hands five years ago still crop up. Alcohol, drugs and assault continue to figure – albeit at a handful of schools and, overall, at a lower rate than in previous years – suggesting some adultworld problems die hard. Many of us once naughty schoolkids scared straight by fear of the strap or of being sent home to mum might wonder if any of this is progress. Give them an inch and they’ll take a mile, right? Well, that’s not the way it is done these days. The Education Ministry believes pupil attendance and effective teaching has the greatest influence on student achievement. It follows that excluding a pupil threatens achievement and sets the scene for a problem that may linger into later life. Mid Canterbury Principals’ Association president Chris Murphy said the trend away from exclusionary measures showed schools were tackling problems before they could get that far. Instead of focusing on punishment, they were more likely to look for the root cause and use measures such as restorative justice or isolation from the classroom or playground. Where appropriate, this should draw a line in the sand as to what is acceptable and what is not while giving the pupil the chance to mend their ways.

Give a dog a little bone

T

he other day a friend mentioned that he had a bone for our dog. Like most pooches, our pup enjoys a good chew on cartilage and canon bones every now and then. Last time we were in Auckland we stopped by the butcher to grab a few off-cuts and the fist-sized chunks kept pup busy all holiday. We smiled, said thank you for the offer, and were on our merry way. By the time we arrived home, our friend was nowhere to be seen, but he’d left a calling card that was hard to miss: One dead cow in the middle of the lawn. The carcass was midway between the dog run and the washing line, positioned like a garden sculpture, which, had it actually been more avant garde, would no doubt have been entitled Lady Gaga’s Coat Hanger. If Carrie Bradshaw wannabes in the big smoke are said to desire a walk-in wardrobe in which to store their hundreds of pairs of business stilettos, this was the canine equivalent. The cavernous ribs dwarfed the dog for whom it was intended and she could walk in alright. In fact, once she’d done so we didn’t see her for another three days. This was actually the closest she’d ever come to anything that moos – usually she’s off in the other direction at the slightest whiff of a cowpat – but she more than made up for lost time.

The arrival of the cow also turned out to be a great lesson in anatomy for pup, but not in the scholarly vein. Instead, she slowly learnt that her eyes are bigger than her stomach – slow being the operative word. In the end we had to relegate the cow to inside the dog run and the dog to outside, in the interests of stopping our pet’s tum from ballooning out any further. One bite more and we would’ve been in real danger of losing her as she drifted up into the wide blue of a Canterbury sky. Coming from the city, Methven remains the only place I know where a friend dropping off a dog treat means you come home to find a dead cow in the garden. It is also one of the few places where such behaviour is considered socially acceptable. Up in Auckland, carcasses stay firmly out of sight.

How do you thaw a frozen heart?

H

aving recently watched the award-winning animated movie Frozen again I find myself reflecting on the key message that is contained within the film. The key message to me is in the line “only an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart”. When the troll first makes this statement everyone assumes that he is talking about true love’s first kiss as is the case with so many other Disney movies. However, the movie shows that what Anna thought was true love was nothing more than manipulation. True love was shown as the act of sacrificing her own life for

Mark Taylor

CHRISTIAN COMMENT

that of her sister. The Bible tells us: “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends” – John 15:13. This is such a challenging verse; are we prepared to lay our own life down, our own goals and plans for the sake of those that we love? What about laying down your life for your enemies? Now surely that would be an act of true love.

To sacrifice your own life for the benefit of people who don’t like you, even those people who hate you. You may think that noone would ever do that, perhaps for their friend or even for their country, but never for their enemies. But that is exactly what Jesus did. When most of humanity was against God he sent his Son. The book of Romans in the Bible says: “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” Through this amazing act of true love God is able to take our cold, hard hearts (if you like, our frozen hearts) and He is able to

thaw them, He is able to replace them. Each one of us has had our hearts frozen in some way, by hurt, by rejection, by abandonment and so many other ways. The question that we ask is how can a heart be thawed. The answer for us is the same as in the movie Frozen “only an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart”. Today there is no truer act of true love than Jesus dying in your place, paying the penalty for all your mistakes. Come to Him today and ask Him to thaw your heart.

■ IRAQ

Militants capture towns Militants who seized large swaths of Iraq’s Sunni heartland with lightning advances this week have pushed into an ethnically mixed province and captured two towns northeast of Baghdad, officials said yesterday as neighbouring Shiite powerhouse Iran signaled its willingness to confront the growing threat. The fresh gains by insurgents, spearheaded by fighters from the al-Qaida-inspired Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, come as Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s Shiite-led government struggles to form a coherent response after the militants blitzed and captured the country’s second-largest city of Mosul, Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit, smaller communities, as well as military and police bases — often after meeting little resistance from state security forces. The fast-moving rebellion, which also draws support from former Saddam-era figures and other disaffected Sunnis, has emerged as the biggest threat to Iraq’s stability since the US withdrawal at the end of 2011. It has pushed the nation closer to a precipice that could partition the country into Sunni, Shiite and Kurdish zones. The assault also threatens to embroil Iraq more deeply in a wider regional conflict, already feeding off the chaos caused by the civil war in neighbouring Syria. Iran’s official IRNA news agency reported that former members of Tehran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard have announced their readiness to fight in Iraq against the Islamic State, while Iranian state TV quoted President Hassan Rouhani as saying his country will do all it can to fight terrorism next door. “The Islamic Republic of Iran will apply all its efforts on the

international and regional levels to confront terrorism,” the Iranian report said Rouhani. Iran has built close political and economic ties with postwar Iraq, and many influential Iraqi Shiites have lived for stretches of time in the Islamic Republic. Iran earlier this week halted flights to Baghdad because of security concerns and said it was intensifying security measures along its borders. Police officials said militants

driving in machinegun-mounted pickups entered the two newly conquered towns in Diyala province late Thursday — Jalula, 125 km northeast of Baghdad, and Sadiyah, 95 km north of the Iraqi capital. Iraqi soldiers abandoned their posts there without any resistance, they said. Residents reached in Jalula said the gunmen issued an ultimatum to the Iraqi soldiers not to resist and give up their weapons in exchange for safe passage

out of the city. After seizing the city, the gunmen announced through loudspeakers that they have come to rescue residents from injustice and that none would be hurt. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to talk to media, and the residents declined to give their names because of concerns for their safety. The Islamic State has vowed to march on Baghdad, but with

its large Shiite population, the capital would be a far more difficult target. So far, the militants have stuck to the Sunni heartland and former Sunni insurgent strongholds where people are already alienated by al-Maliki’s government over allegations of discrimination and mistreatment. The militants also would likely meet far stronger resistance, from government forces and Shiite militias. - AP

■ CHINA

China plans to build up infant formula producers China’s government has announced plans to build up a handful of large producers of infant formula in its latest effort to revive an industry that is reeling from a scandal over tainted milk. Dairies will be encouraged to merge to form more competitive producers and will receive financial support, a Cabinet statement said. It said plans call for creating 10 producers by next

year with at least $300 million in annual revenue and three to five by 2018 with revenue of $800 million. China’s dairies have been on the defensive since a 2008 scandal over tainted formula that killed at least six babies and prompted many parents to switch to imported brands. Domestic brands lost market share to suppliers from New Zealand, Australia, Europe and

elsewhere, setting back the communist government’s efforts to build a dairy industry. Beijing wants to restore consumer faith in Chinese formula and will enforce “strict quality management,” the Cabinet statement said. In the 2008 scandal, some milk was found to contain melamine, a chemical that can cause kidney damage and other injuries. Unscrupulous suppliers added it to

watered-down supplies to fool tests for levels of protein in the milk. The brand at the center of the scandal, Sanlu, was broken up and regulators overhauled industry supervision. But that failed to reassure Chinese parents. The reputation of imported brands is so much stronger that customers pay up to three times the price of Chinese milk for them.

Last August, regulators fined five foreign milk suppliers and one from Hong Kong a total of $108 million on charges they violated China’s anti-monopoly law by setting minimum retail prices for stores. In May, the Chinese product quality agency announced that only milk products from foreign sources that are registered with the government can be imported. - AP

In brief Venice mayor resigns Venice’s mayor has resigned amid a corruption scandal a day after being released from house arrest under a plea deal. Mayor Giorgio Orsoni announced his resignation yesterday, indicating a lack of support from the Democratic Party since his arrest last week in a wideranging corruption probe related to construction of underwater barriers to protect the lagoon city from flooding. Orsoni has said he was unaware that any donations to his 2010 election campaign were illegal. He was released from house arrest Thursday after accepting a four-month sentence in a plea agreement. Such short sentences are rarely served in Italy. - AP

Kitten catastrophe Perth’s prolonged warm weather is extending this year’s kitten season with litters being born into early winter, putting additional pressure on a local cat shelter. Cat Haven spokeswoman Chandra Woodley said a litter of kittens was born at the shelter just two weeks ago, a very rare occurrence because the breeding season usually ends in April. “The kitten season has been extraordinarily long this year with it being drawn out from November to June due to the warmer weather continuing,” she said. “Cats normally only breed in the warmer months so although we are used to large influxes of kittens normally from about November to April, we have kept on getting kittens surrendered to us.” - AAP

Dolphin hunt protest Hundreds of Sea Shepherd activists are heading for the Faroe Islands for an unprecedented campaign against a traditional dolphin hunt that they call “an obsolete massacre,” the conservation group says. Relays of volunteers will patrol the ocean and beaches of the remote North Atlantic archipelago, an autonomous country within Denmark, from mid-June to October to try to block the killing of pilot whales, members of the dolphin family, in a practice known locally as a “grind”. “This is a tradition that’s hundreds of years old, dating from when inhabitants needed to eat dolphins to survive,” Sea Shepherd director Alex Cornelissen said in Amsterdam, en route for a ferry to the Faroe Islands, which lie between Iceland and Scotland and have a population of around 50,000. - AP

Seven miners killed Seven miners were killed and two others are missing after a gas explosion ripped through an underground coal mine in eastern Ukraine, authorities say. The blast happened before dawn on Thursday at a depth of 300 metres, located in the eastern city of Kirovsk, the State Emergency Service said in a statement. Officials said on Friday they were continuing their search for the two missing men. Accidents are a regular feature at Ukrainian mines, most of which are located in the country’s industrial eastern region, where pro-Russian rebels now control over a dozen towns and cities. Many of them are underfunded and poorly equipped, and safety violations are rife. - AP

Jolie, Pitt at UK violence summit Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie arrived hand-in-hand for the final day of the global summit to end war zone rape. British Foreign Secretary William Hague, who is cochairing the summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict with Jolie, arrived yesterday at the ExCel exhibition centre in London’s Docklands with his wife Ffion. Jolie and Pitt put on a public display of affection on Thursday at the summit - putting their arms around one another - as they stopped to look at a picture in a gallery. The actress and Hague have launched an international protocol which they hope will “really, truly end impunity” when

it comes to sexual violence in conflict. “For me, and I suspect for many of you, this summit has been an emotional experience,” Jolie said. “We have all come together based on a common desire to end war zone sexual violence, and we have mapped out every area of action we need to take.” The actress said there is “no doubt” that after these four days it is now known what has to be done. Hague described the last three days as “remarkable”, and said the summit has “opened the eyes of the world to this issue”. The Foreign Secretary greeted US secretary of state John Kerry as he arrived at the event.

Former POW Bergdahl back home in US The US soldier freed in a controversial swap with the Afghan Taliban has arrived back in the United States, his latest step in a return to normality after five years in captivity. The Pentagon said Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl arrived yesterday in the middle of the night on a flight from Germany to San Antonio, Texas where he will continue treatment at Brooke Army Medical Centre. Bergdahl was handed over on May 31 in return for five senior

Taliban detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison for terror suspects. The US Army sergeant had been recuperating at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Centre in Germany, amid growing debate over the swap that secured his freedom, with some US politicians accusing President Barack Obama of capitulating to “terrorists”. The Pentagon said in a oneparagraph statement on its website that in Texas the sol-

dier will “continue the next phase of his reintegration process. There is no timeline for this process. Our focus remains on his health and well-being.” US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel “is confident that the Army will continue to ensure that Sgt Bergdahl receives the care, time and space that he needs to complete his recovery and reintegration”. Bergdahl is yet to speak to the news media about his ordeal and Pentagon officials have said

his health has steadily improved in the days since his release. His disappearance from a base in eastern Afghanistan in 2009 has fuelled speculation the soldier deserted his post before being captured and may face prosecution by military.

The search area has changed several times, but no sign of the aircraft, or the 239 people aboard, has been found. The hunt for Air France Flight 447 took two years and the French government, the airline and aircraft manufacturer Airbus paid for the vast majority of the underwater search and recovery efforts. - AP

YOUR STARS by Forecasters

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20) Weekend or not you’ll need to keep your professional hat on. With your professional instincts sharp you’ve got a better sense of where the money is. TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21) Mercury’s last weekend in your communication sector is a chance to not only make communication a priority, but to give unsaid words a voice. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 22) Moving into your new solar year is less about making plans, intentions or resolutions and more about being true to yourself and the journey ahead. CANCER (JUNE 22 – JULY 24) Any personal and/or relationship tensions this weekend are a practice run for next month’s Full Moon, with a chance to clear the air now. LEO (JULY 24 – AUG 23) As important as it is to keep your professional hat on, don’t forget a need for downtime and for finding time to hear yourself think. VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 23) Reverberations from Friday’s Full Moon 2 days ago are still making home and family matters a priority, with a chance to honour intentions made. LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 23) The Moon is making a timely return to your home and family sector, giving you a chance to pre empt any work/life balance issues before they bite. SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) You’re already at a point where you should know what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, with communication essential. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) As Mercury spends his last weekend in retrograde motion in your financial sector you’ve got both a smart head for money and 20/20 hindsight. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) Moving into the final month of an important relationship chapter you can’t afford to be asleep at the wheel, with a need to bless any wakeup calls. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) Take a moment to catch your breath first, using any downtime the weekend affords to recharge your batteries and also think through options. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) Make the most of one of the last weekends you’ll get for a while, where you can make matters of the heart, your social life and friendships a priority.
