Ashburton in global limelight Court case exposure priceless for district BY MYLES HUME Chris Pine’s court appearance has made headlines all over the world, including the US, the UK, France, Canada, Spain, Germany, India and the Netherlands.


Hollywood star Chris Pine’s drink driving charge is creating international exposure that money just can’t buy for Mid Canterbury. The names Methven, Ashburton District Court and the Blue Pub have appeared on hundreds of news media websites across the world, all fascinated by the news the 33-yearold actor was caught drink driving near Methven while filming the movie Z for Zachariah on March 1. From large media outlets such as The Huffington Post, The Guardian and Daily Mail to the gossip sites including E! and – the “scandal” has been a feeding frenzy as they await his scheduled Ashburton District Court appearance on Monday. Experience Mid Canterbury general manager Nigel Birt said the media spotlight cast over the district was priceless. “With social media and online media we are seeing around this subject you are getting some real exposure,” he said. “For example there was a picture of him in the Blue Pub in Methven on the Stuff website, that then

gets a global reach ... so the brand of Blue Pub is reaching millions and millions of people you couldn’t achieve for free – in fact it would cost a lot of money.” He said although it was at short notice for many of the tourism operators in the district, it would be an ideal time to capitalise for some businesses. “Now it’s about looking at any cheeky potential to expand on that appearance next week without crossing any dangerous lines, obviously the world is watching and there will be a fair bit of media here on Monday.” The Ashburton Guardian understands many media outlets are poised to gather at the Ashburton District Court on Monday to get a glimpse of the film star. However, accommodation providers around Ashburton are yet to see the fruits of the attention. Some the Guardian spoke with were already full with events over the weekend, while others said they would welcome camera crews and reporters with open arms. “I think he should plead not guilty so we can have this attention another week longer,” one operator joked.

Five things that may interest you

Naomi: I will have kids Supermodel Naomi Campbell is determined to become a mother even if she never settles down with a husband.The British beauty, who split from her long-time boyfriend Vladislav Doronin after five years in 2013, revealed her desire to have children in a SiriusXM Radio interview with designer Diane von Furstenberg this week. The 43-year-old admitted she is open to exploring other avenues if she fails to have a child with her chosen partner. “I do want to have children, whether I have a man or not. I will have it on my own.”



NZ road among world’s deadliest A stretch of road in the South Island is one of the 22 most dangerous in the world, according to a British driving firm. Driving Experience has labelled the Skippers Canyon road, 25 minutes from Queenstown in the Mt Aurum Recreation Reserve, as “unbelievably scary as it is beautiful”. The gravel road is predominantly used by tour buses and commercial tourism operators for activities such as jetboating. The rating was part of an interactive map that the firm made, supposedly based on the World Health Organisation’s 2013 global status report on road safety as well as other data sets, which highlights some of the most dangerous roads in the world. The report gives the Skippers Canyon road an “overall road fear factor” of 7 out of 10, saying: “While fatality numbers are relatively low, this mountain road with its huge drop into the ravine below is so dangerous it requires a huge amount of concentration, patience and even a special permit to even try and tackle it.”

3D printer used to fix man’s face A British man who suffered horrific facial injuries in a motorbike accident has had pioneering surgery to rebuild his face using 3D printed parts. Stephen Power from Cardiff in Wales is thought to be one of the first trauma patients in the world to have a procedure in which 3D printing was used at every stage.The 29-year-old suffered multiple trauma injuries in an accident in 2012. Despite wearing a crash helmet, his top jaw, nose and both cheek bones were broken and he fractured his skull. Surgeons said that by using 3D printing techniques, much of the guesswork was removed from the reconstruction of the face.

Swift a top earner Country star Taylor Swift was the top-earning musician in 2013, pulling in $US39.7 million ($NZ46.9 million) from sales of her fourth studio album and a successful world tour, according to Billboard magazine. Swift, 24, beat out other industry heavyweights such as Kenny Chesney, who earned $US33m ($NZ39m), and Justin Timberlake, who earned $US31.5m ($NZ37.2m).Rock veterans Bon Jovi and The Rolling Stones followed with earnings of $US29m ($NZ31.5) and $US26m ($NZ30.7).

Key ‘fat gene’ found Geneticists have identified a key obesity gene, throwing up a possible target for drugs to tackle a dangerous and growing epidemic. Mice bred to lack a gene dubbed IRX3 were almost a third lighter than rodents with the gene, they said. The equivalent gene exists in humans, and its functioning may explain why some people are more prone to obesity than others. “Our data strongly suggests that IRX3 controls body mass and regulates body composition,” said Marcelo Nobrega of the University of Chicago, who headed the investigation published in the journal Nature. It likely does so by regulating metabolism. Nobrega said the goal was to identify which cell functions were being altered by IRX3, and how, so that drugs can be developed to block the obesity-causing effects. The World Health Organisation says obesity nearly doubled worldwide from 1980 to 2008.

Property has $70m value on it By Michelle NelsoN

A sizeable crowd is expected to witness a Mid Canterbury property tipped to reach the $70 million mark when it is knocked down at a no-reserve auction today. Ealing Pastures, running 3200 cows on 1284 hectares, will be at sold the Ashburton Trust Event Centre this afternoon. The farm was purchased for $5 million in 2000 by a partnership that was 25 per cent owned by Jean and the late Allan Hubbard, 25 per cent by the current occupiers Andrew and Rachel Morris and 50 per cent by Pullington – an investment vehicle

owned by Western Australian couple Geoffrey and Frances Holman. The three-way partnership was terminated by Mr Hubbard’s accidental death in 2011, and in the following year the High Court ordered it to be sold by no-reserve auction, to dissolve the remaining partnership. The ruling also determined the purchaser must buy the stock and plant at market value. In April last year the Court of Appeal determined the property to be worth $60 million, with an additional $10 million for the stock and plant, at a hearing which upheld the High Court decision.

Property Brokers’ rural real estate agent Chris Murdoch said interest in the property had remained steady over recent weeks. “There are some interested parties, but we will just have to wait and see whether they operate or not,” he said. “You never quite know with an auction – some people say they will turn up and don’t, others don’t say they intend to be there, and turn up, that’s the beauty of auctions.” But prospective buyers aside, Mr Ford anticipates the event will attract a crowd. “I would expect a lot of interest from banks and professionals connected with the industry,

who want to see where things are going, it’s an open measure for the market as well,” he said. Mr Ford admitted to feeling slightly nervous, pending the biggest sale in his career to date.


Storage Wars comes to Ashburton By susaN saNdys

Storage wars will come to Ashburton tomorrow when two abandoned storage units go up for auction. Rainbow Storage owner Paul O’Brien said the two separate owners of the units had stopped paying their weekly rental fee last December. He believed the two owners had originally come from the North Island and lived in Ashburton up until last year when they both left town around the same time. He had tried to track them down via classified advertising and social media, to no avail. “It’s probably a first for Ashburton to have a Storage Warstype auction,” Mr O’Brien said. He was referring to Prime’s American reality television show Storage Wars, which follows four professional buyers and their teams as they scour repossessed storage units and attempt to outbid each other. Mr O’Brien said while the auction itself might very well be an exciting first for Ashburton, he was disappointed it had come to this. “To be honest I never wanted to go down this line, we have exhausted all avenues, we have used whatever medium is available to try and find them and

get them to pay,” Mr O’Brien said. He did not know what was in the units, but assumed it would be personal effects and household items. Whether there was valuable

items such as jewellery or collectables was anyone’s guess. “It’s going to be a lucky-dip really,” Mr O’Brien said. The non-reserve public auction would be held at 9am tomorrow at the rear of the

property, on site at Rainbow Storage, 131 Alford Forest Road. The auctioneer will cut the bolts on the units, and allow people to view the goods within, prior to bidding kicking off.

“You’re always nervous – you’re not doing your job if you’re not,” he said. “But you only do what you can do, after that it’s in the lap of the gods.”

Charged with attack on baby A 20-year-old Waipukurau man has been arrested in connection with an alleged serious assault on a 5-week-old baby. The boy was admitted to Hawke’s Bay Hospital on November 1, but was transferred the same day to Starship Hospital in Auckland. Detective Senior Sergeant David Greig said the boy suffered a serious head injury and other multiple injuries including fractures. An investigation had been done, including a forensic scene examination, of the house where the boy had been living. The man was arrested yesterday and appeared in Hastings District Court charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and neglect of the infant. He was remanded on bail to appear again in the Waipukurau District Court on April 14. Mr Greig described the baby’s injuries as being among the most serious his team had investigated. “An arrest is very pleasing given the tragic circumstances of the case,” he said. The baby has been in the care of Child Youth and Family since his discharge from hospital in mid-December and is receiving ongoing medical treatment for his injuries. - APNZ

In brief

Media frenzy anticipated By MicHelle nelson A media frenzy is expected when a Hollywood celebrity appears in the Ashburton District Court on Monday. Ministry of Justice officials are remaining tight-lipped over what security measures will be in place when Chris Pine appears to face drink-driving charges. However, the case has sparked both national and international

attention and will be the most high profile matter ever heard in the Ashburton court. While court officials and a Ministry of Justice media spokesman were unable to disclose any information surrounding the matter, they were more than likely to have been bombarded with media requests from around the country and overseas. Representatives from all major national media outlets

are expected to converge on Ashburton to cover the court appearance, including newspapers, television crews, online news providers, gossip magazines and paparazzi photographers. All reporters, photographers and camera crews have been told to apply for permission to be in the courtroom. The case is also expected to attract fans and onlookers. Mr Pine was nabbed in a

booze bus sting after a party in Methven, early in the hours of March 1. He subsequently failed a blood alcohol test and was charged with drink driving. The blood alcohol limit for adult New Zealand drivers is 80 milligrams per 100 millilitres of blood. Mr Pine, of Star Trek fame, had been in the Methven district filming his latest movie Z for Zachariah.


KiwiRail rules out crossing upgrade By Myles HuMe and sue newMan

KiwiRail has no plans to upgrade the notorious railway Hatfield crossing, despite one district councillor labelling it one of the most dangerous in the Ashburton District. It comes after a young Mid Canterbury man made what police described as “a lucky escape” after he drove his ute into the side of a northbound train at the Hatfield-Overdale level crossing about 3pm on Wednesday. The man, in his 20s, was taken to Ashburton Hospital with moderate injuries, while the uninjured train driver has been told to stay home from work and offered counselling. However, the crash has raised concerns over the crossing which is only controlled by give way signs, with district councillor Neil Brown concerned over the number of crashes at the crossing, resulting in three deaths since 1980. However, KiwiRail said yesterday the railway crossing did not feature on its priority list. “This particular level crossing has been assessed and is not considered to be in a high risk category which would justify the installation of lights and bells,” a spokesperson said. “The current protection should be adequate if road ve-

Bus incident A Go West bus had to pull over on an Auckland motorway in peak traffic yesterday morning after a passenger suffered a medical event. The incident happened on the Northwestern Motorway about 8.10am, northern ambulance communications shift manager Ngaire Jones said. An ambulance was called to assist, and a patient was taken to Auckland Hospital. - APNZ

School camp injury A parent helper assisting with a school camp fell on a bush track near Te Puke yesterday morning and suffered a suspected dislocated hip. Police and ambulance were dispatched around 9am and by midday rescuers had reached the injured party on foot. She was airlifted to hospital by rescue helicopter. - APNZ

hicles slow down and prepare to stop as required.” Mr Brown said if KiwiRail wouldn’t do anything about improving warning signs at the crossing, then the council should build money for the work into its budget. Council contracts manager Brian Fauth said the council had changed a rail warning sign off its own bat at Northpark Road but KiwiRail had

forced it to remove the sign and reinstall the original. “KiwiRail has a scoring system it uses and they’ll put the crossing on a list but with the low levels of traffic going across there we’d struggle to get funding,” he said. Mr Brown said the number of fatalities compared with the number of vehicles using the crossing would be disproportionate. The Kiwirail spokes-

person said it was up to the drivers to ensure it was safe to cross. “Visibility is obstructed some distance back from the crossing but is entirely adequate for road users if they slow down and prepare to give way to trains. Senior Sergeant Grant Russell would not rule out charging the driver, saying police would make a decision in due course.

Searchers have run out of leads in the hunt for missing Marlborough boatie Kerry Blair. Blenheim police Sergeant Bill Talbot said an active search was no longer under way, but it would be revived if there were any new leads on Mr Blair’s likely whereabouts. Mr Blair, 55, was last seen near Cape Jackson on Saturday afternoon. Conditions were calm. - APNZ

Lawn mower blamed Firefighters battled a blaze at Jacks Point, near Queenstown, yesterday.

Fire last night successfully raised the top half of the ship’s accommodation block from the seabed suspended below the RMG 500 crane barge - placing it onto a transport barge. The cut-and-lift operation to remove the first 350-tonne

metal block ended up taking 12 days to complete, and saw the accommodation block above the water for the first time since the ship broke apart on Astrolabe Reef off the Tauranga coast and sank amid a storm in January 2012.

A salvage operation, expected to ultimately cost the ship’s owners $350 million to date, has been ongoing since the ship struck the reef on October 5, 2011, spilling 350 tonnes of heavy fuel oil and container debris into the ocean. - APNZ

Dozens of submitters put their case A marathon four-day hearing on the future of a project to build a second bridge across the Ashburton River, wrapped up in Ashburton late yesterday afternoon. Final submitter of the day was barrister Pru Steven who spoke on behalf of the Bridge Action Group. During the four-day war of words, independent hearing commissioners John Milligan and Andy Carr heard the case for Ashburton District Council’s second bridge project put by solicitor Cedric Carranjeca and a team of experts. Dozens of objectors also

lined up to make their case against the council’s application for land to be designated for the bridge, spearheaded by the Bridge Action Group. With evidence from expert witnesses and submissions from the objectors often long and complex, the hearing was extended by a day. At the hearing’s conclusion, rather than make a verbal response to the submitters, Mr Carranjeca opted to provide the commissioners with a written document. No date has been given for the commissioners’ findings to be released.

Second bridge route ‘predetermined’ By Sue NewmaN

The Ashburton District Council paid only lip-service to democracy when it chose the route for a second bridge across the Ashburton River, citizens association chair Diane Rawlinson says. She was speaking on day four of hearings on the council’s application to have land designated for a second bridge that will run from the end of Chalmers Avenue along a new route through rural/urban land east of Tinwald. While the council might claim it had consulted the community, it was clear it had made up its mind on the final route before consultation began, Ms Rawlinson said. “This route was predetermined and well documented from 2008 onwards, but the community was basically unaware of this. It was not until March 2010 that the news really broke.” Ms Rawlinson told commissioners John Milligan and Andy Carr that the route had been clearly identified in the Ashburton Transportation Study carried out in 2006. While the council had then come up with a number of possible alternative routes, and had worked through a consultation process, she said councillors and council staff had had a clear case of “tunnel vision”.

Council ‘failed its legal requirement by not disclosing bridge route’ Diane Rawlinson

By Sue NewmaN

When public meetings were held, Ms Rawlinson said many people felt there was little point in having their say through the submission process because the council had already made its mind up. “There has been scant regard given by council to any of the other routes. The stock answer has been, ‘NZTA won’t give us any funding for that’. The process has been flawed from the outset, the council has failed to be totally transparent with the people of the district. The council should be taking the community on its journey rather than taking a dictatorial stance.” She asked the commissioners to revoke the council’s application, to ask for a peer review of the whole process and for a long term view to be taken of Ashburton’s future transportation needs.

Tinwald man Dave Saunders says he’s wasted four years of his life and was forced to sell his property at a loss because of the chosen route for a new bridge across the Ashburton River. He told commissioners John Milligan and Andy Carr that when he bought his home in 2009 there was no indication on his LIM that the property was on the bridge route. The council had failed in its legal requirement to do this because discussions had been under way on this route since 2006, Mr Saunders said. Three months after he bought his property he discovered it was on the bridge route. The route chosen will impact to varying degrees on more than six properties with one house to be demolished; an alternative route would have af-

Dave Saunders

fected just two properties, he said. As well as believing the second bridge location was wrong, Mr Saunders said he had serious concerns about the way the council had handled the consultation process. He is a member of the Bridge Action Group (BAG) and was a member of the community reference group established to work through site options.

While the BAG came up with route alternatives, these were never given serious consideration by the council, he said “We were told they do not meet requirements and that they were presented too late. This indicates the council and Opus had already showed predeterminations and, having made up their minds, were not willing to listen to any other alternatives.” While the BAG continued to fight the council’s chosen route, many people had become worn down by the process and comments such as “you’re wasting your time”… “ADC won’t listen, they’ve made up their minds long ago”… were common, Mr Saunders said. Not only was the chosen route the wrong one, the council had gone about the consultation process in a way that had failed the people of Ashburton, he said.

Praying for a dry winter By Myles HuMe

Tinwald School principal Peter Livingstone is praying for a dry winter as his school undergoes a $485,000 revamp. Two new classrooms, an office relocation and a fire and security system upgrade were given the green light by the Ministry of Education last week which will see the heart of the school become a construction zone for the best part of the year. Mr Livingstone said the school had run into delays as it negotiated with the ministry to have the fire and security systems improved as part of the entire project. The school will be meeting this week to establish timelines, however Mr Livingstone hoped to have the two new classes for Year 3 and 4 pupils functioning by term 4. “The first stage will be moving the office, and talking to the

project manager that should happen this coming holidays.” The major building works comes after the school experienced rapid roll growth during the past few years, with this year’s roll already at 233 – well above its expected rate. “This is happening in the heart of the school so there’s going to be a lot of work around safety and access, we can’t have trucks just driving through the school and then getting stuck in the mud. “I’m just hoping it’s going to be a dry winter.” The new classrooms will occupy the space of where the current office is, with the office block set to move forward towards Thompson Street. Mr Livingstone said the new classes would sit opposite existing classes, with the hope of one day connecting the quartet with a roof and walls to create an additional learning space.

A ‘moment of madness’ By Kurt Bayer After 20 years of misery, Lucille Scollay finally snapped. She loved her husband Guy dearly. But after a night out drinking with an old flame, she felt she their sad lives could not continue. So, she got a large knife from the kitchen, straddled her husband as he lay sleeping, and plunged the blade deep into his chest. Mrs Scollay denied murder. And after a short trial at the High Court in Christchurch last month, a jury agreed. Yesterday, she was jailed for six years, with no minimum non-parole period, for manslaughter. She has the support of both her family, the couple’s son Louis Augustus, and her dead husband’s relatives. “Of all the cases I’ve ever worked on, this has been one

Lucille Scollay

of the most troubling in just about every sense,” her defence counsel Rupert Glover said outside court yesterday. Mrs Scollay, 46, admitted stabbing Guy, 48, through his heart during the early hours of February 10 last year with fatal consequences. She had become highly frustrated and dissatisfied with their lives, the court heard.

Her husband, a bright history major, became profoundly depressed shortly after the birth of their only child, son Louis, 20 years ago. Mr Scollay was on anti-depressant medication and the methadone programme, barely left their house suffering undiagnosed agoraphobia, and was essentially bedridden with scabies. His only release was the smoking of cannabis. His wife’s family encouraged ‘Lulu’ to leave her beloved ‘Guido’ and “get her life back on track”. That night, she returned home after a night out drinking with a man she had become close to, Greg Van Dyk. Walking up the long Edgeware Rd drive, she decided to kill her husband, the Crown contested. “She took her husband by his shoulder as he lay sleeping on his side, rolled him onto

his back, got on top of him, straddling him as he was still half asleep, brought the knife up and stabbed him in chest, a deep wound that penetrated his heart,” Crown prosecutor Mark Zarifeh said. Justice Cameron Mander yesterday said it was apparent her actions were “borne out of despair”. She was conflicted, in that she was deeply unhappy, but she still loved her husband, and felt she could not leave him. “This predicament led to this crisis which led to your killing of Mr Scollay,” the judge said. The violent act came at a “time of personal crisis,” Justice Mander said. She was accurate when she later told police it was a “moment of madness”. The judge told her she had to live with what she had done, and the impact it had had on her family. - APNZ


Classroom focus turns to robotics Robots have been taking over Mid Canterbury schools this week. However the humans were still in control, as 120 pupils from schools across the district, including Ashburton Christian School’s Zani Le Roux (left) and Jacob Stowell, constructed robots and programmed them to carry out unique tasks. As part of a Mid Canterbury Fibre Connected Schools initiative, Science Alive! education manager John Wynyard visited Allenton School on Wednesday and Methven Primary yesterday to teach the youngsters how to programme the robots to move in straight lines, touch four walls of an arena with sensor technology and follow a coloured line. He said it was an ideal opportunity for pupils to learn about the basics of robots, potentially inspiring them to a later career in engineering.

Forestry worker hurt A forestry worker suffered a serious leg injury when a branch crashed into the side of his crane yesterday. The incident happened at Colgate Forest, west of Christchurch, about 10am, a Westpac Rescue Helicopter spokesman said. The 30-year-old was flown to Christchurch Hospital with a fractured femur when a 15-20cm branch from the log smashed the window of the cab hitting him in the side. Co-workers were able to release the pressure of the log by chain sawing the branch, the spokesman said. - APNZ

Firefighters battle fire Firefighters were last evening still at the scene of a major fire which broke out at Taheke, South Hokianga, about 12.30pm yesterday. The blaze swept through more than 30ha of scrub and native bush beside Taheke Rd, threatening homes and a pine plantation.

The same area was razed by fire four years ago. - APNZ

Emergency calls to attract higher charges Patients transported by St John Ambulance in emergencies will be charged more by the organisation as it tries to keep up with demand. In some areas the charge will rise by $13. Patients pay a part-charge to St John if they are treated by an ambulance officer or trans-

In brief

ported in an ambulance because of a medical emergency. “We are increasing our part charges in response to increasing demand for our services. In the year ending 30 June 2013 the number of 111 emergency calls for an ambulance increased by over 14,000 compared to the previous year,” St John opera-

tions director Michael Brooke said. “People tell us they are comfortable to pay a part charge, and when they understand that the part charge goes towards funding frontline ambulance staff.” Contracts with the Ministry of Health, ACC and District

Health Boards fund nearly 80 per cent of St John Ambulance Service direct operating costs. The shortfall is made up from community donations, fundraising, revenue from commercial activities, the contribution of volunteers, as well as contributions from part charges. - APNZ

Charges have been laid against Fonterra in relation to last year’s whey protein recall due to a botulism scare. The Ministry for Primary Industries yesterday confirmed four charges were laid in Wellington District Court against Fonterra Limited. The charges include exporting dairy product that failed to meet standard, and failing to notify the Director General as soon as possible. - APNZ

Bail application to High Court

Nia Glassie’s mother has her parole revoked

A bail application hearing for twice-convicted murderer and rapist Teina Pora has been referred back to the High Court at the direction of the Court of Appeal. Pora, 38, has spent 21 years behind bars for the 1992 rape and murder of Susan Burdett in Auckland. Arguments from Pora’s lawyer, Jonathan Krebs, failed to advance past discussions around which court held jurisdiction to hear the bail application. Justices Mark O’Reagan, John Wild and Forrest Miller yesterday directed documents for Pora’s appeal be forwarded onto the High Court, after establishing it was not within the jurisdiction of the Court of Appeal to hear the bail application. Earlier this year, Pora was granted leave to appeal against his convictions to the Privy Council in London. After the hearing, Mr Krebs told media it was disappointing Pora would have to remain in

Teina Pora

prison but he was pleased the High Court would hear his bail application. “We knew it would be a difficult hearing and the jurisdiction point has always been there. “We’re very pleased the Court of Appeal has chosen to refer it on to the High Court.’’ Crown lawyer Matthew Downs said he would oppose the High Court’s jurisdiction, so “we’ve got some battles ahead’’, Mr Krebs said. Pursuing bail for Pora, who

also has a parole hearing set for the end of the month, was important as a successful result would enable him to be free of conditions set on his sentence. “When a person’s admitted to parole, they continue to be serving their sentence, just in the community. They’re still subject to all the terms of their sentence...and they’re always vulnerable to recall. “When you’re granted bail, effectively your sentence stops,’’ Mr Krebs said. Outside the court house,

Krebs said Pora had not yet heard the outcome of yesterday’s hearing. “He has had it made clear to him that the question of bail is not a certain one. He’s philosophical but he’s 38, he has spent 21 years in custody so far. “Every opportunity we have to get his freedom before we go to London, we’re going to take.’’ Mr Krebs said he chose to appeal for Pora’s bail at the Court of Appeal because it was a simpler process than going through the High Court. “It’s a very quick process to get applications such as that in front of the Court of Appeal. The process, as I understand it, through the High Court would have been more time consuming.’’ Mr Krebs remained optimistic about Pora’s bid for freedom. “We might have lost a few skirmishes around the edges, but we’re moving forward.’’ Dr Downs appeared via video link from Auckland for yesterday’s hearing. - APNZ

By ReBecca Quilliam The mother of tortured Rotorua three-year-old Nia Glassie has had her parole revoked by the Parole Board. Lisa Michelle Kuka was granted parole last month because the board said she no longer posed an undue risk to the community. She was due to be released on April 7. But yesterday it released a decision revoking that ruling, based on information it had received from the Corrections Department on February 28. Details of that information were not known. “We direct that Ms Kuka be scheduled to see the Parole Board again as soon as practicable,” the board said. Kuka started her nine-year sentence for the manslaughter of her daughter on February 4, 2009. Her then partner, Wiremu Curtis, and his brother Michael were sentenced to life imprisonment for the little girl’s murder. Nia Glassie died on August 3, 2007, from head injuries after being repeatedly kicked. She had been subjected to ongoing abuse, usually when her mother was out at work, including being put in a clothes dryer, hung on a clothesline and spun around, used in wrestling moves, having objects thrown at her and being subjected to cold baths. Kuka did not take Nia to hospital, and was found guilty of manslaughter on the basis she failed in her duties as a parent protect her and provide care. When the board granted Kuka parole, it said she had completed several programmes while in prison and had worked on the external grounds crew and was regarded as an exemplary worker. More recently she had been engaged with the “release to work” programme for several months. “Her behaviour is described in exemplary terms,” the earlier decision said. A psychological report assessed her as being at a low risk of reoffending and the board said she had made “significant progress” over the latter half of her sentence. Nia was the youngest of Kuka’s six children. Her death appalled the nation and prompted calls for more to be done to combat child abuse. - APNZ

Cyclone centre to miss NZ landfall BY PATRICE DOUGAN AND TEUILA FUATAI Cyclone Lusi, which has killed at least three people in Vanuatu is expected to smash into northern parts of New Zealand by tonight. But the cyclone centre is now expected to brush past the north coast and not make landfall. The deadly cyclone killed at least three people in Vanuatu on Wednesday including a 6-yearold boy trapped in a mudslide, and an elderly man and woman hit by flying debris in two separate incidents, according to Paolo Malatu, Vanuatu humanitarian team national co-ordinator. Another six, all women and children from the worst-hit island of Santo, have been declared missing and are thought to have been buried in mud-

slides. The number of dead and missing was expected to increase as communications systems were re-established on the island nation, Mr Malatu said. Mr Malatu’s wife, Jessica, who works at the Melanesian Port Vila Hotel said locals around the capital had been well prepared. “The winds were very strong, and there was heavy rain.” There had been no damage at the hotel, and people were relieved the storm had passed. “We’re all saved,” she said. As the cyclone advances on New Zealand, people here are being warned to batten down the hatches and prepare for severe weather, including heavy rain and gale force winds with potential gusts of up to 120km/h. Civil Defence yesterday issued warnings reminding people to

tie down and secure belongings, as well as to expect flooding, slips, road closures, and power and phone outages. It also warned people to review their travel plans, with a number of events scheduled over the weekend, particularly around Auckland which is expected to be on the receiving end of some of the worst weather. While the centre of the storm now looks set to track west, just off North Cape and stay offshore, the storm still has the potential to be severe and damaging. The first signs of the storm would creep in this evening, MetService warned, becoming cloudy and blustery down through Northland, Auckland and the Coromandel. “As we go through the daytime we will see the cloud thick-

en up, the rain develop and the wind strengthening as well,” meteorologist John Law said. “The North Island in particular will find Saturday to be a wet and windy day with gales quite widely and heavy falls of rainfall. “We’ve got a weather watch out for Northland, Auckland, Coromandel, Bay of Plenty and towards Gisborne for some of that rainfall and gales. “Also for the likes of Waikato and the central plateau will see some of those easterly gales too.” Wind gusts could reach up to 110km/h-120km/h in exposed places, he said. The North Island will bear the brunt of the stormy weather tomorrow before it moves south, hitting the South Island late tomorrow night or in the early hours of Sunday morning.

MetService forecast potential persistent rain down the eastern parts of the South Island, warning Christchurch residents to be on their guard, following the recent floods. However, WeatherWatch analyst Philip Duncan said latest models looked like the storm might pass down the west of the Southern Alps, saving Christchurch from much of the heavy rain and severe winds. However, he advised residents to keep an eye on forecasts. Clouds were already building over Northland and Auckland last night and the storm would continue forming throughout today, Mr Duncan said. The worst of the weather would hit northern regions tomorrow night and into Sunday morning, with gale force winds and bursts of heavy rain, he said. - APNZ

Hungry thieves hit foodbank



Rakaia builder top New Zealand cowboy Seasoned rodeo competitor Pat McCarthy (pictured riding Chad in a recent event) is New Zealand’s top cowboy after completing his best rodeo season ever. The Rakaia builder took out the allround award for cumulative prize dollars won over the year, after attending

about 15 rodeos throughout the country. The award was announced at the national finals in Wanaka last weekend, where Mr McCarthy also won the rope and tie and team roping events. And to top it off, his new horse Chad was named horse of the year at the

event after a competitors’ vote. Mr McCarthy scored about $14,000 in prize money throughout the season, and from the weekend brought home trophy saddles, gold and silver buckles, and a separate plaque and trophy in honour of Chad.


Thieves with a penchant for curry and chocolate smashed their way into a Mosgiel foodbank on Wednesday night. Michelle Kerr can’t understand it. The Mosgiel Community Foodbank co-ordinator stood yesterday under a sign reading “God Loves You”, as she pointed out the door which had been jemmied, and where chocolate flakes and biscuit crumbs littered the floor. “If these people were hungry they only need to come through our open door,” Mrs Kerr said. “We will give them food and we won’t ask questions.” In the adjacent hall she showed the roasting pan left soaking in the kitchen sink, following an apparent late-night feed of what appeared to be curried sausages. Mrs Kerr said the break-in on Wednesday night was a setback for the foodbank, which was always well supported by the local community. “Our community will not be impressed, we have the most supportive community.” Constable Tim Coudret of Mosgiel police said it appeared “very hungry” youths might have been involved. “It is just disgusting someone would break in to a voluntary organisation that does such a wonderful job for the greater Mosgiel community,” Const Coudret said. - APNZ

Big day in court Coen Lammers EDITOR


he Ashburton District Courthouse will witness a day like few others on Monday. The tiny district court has seen a few high-profile court cases come through its doors over the years, often en route to a High Court trial in Timaru or Christchurch, but few other cases would have involved a Hollywood movie star. Chris Pine may not be a Hollywood A-lister yet, but his appearances in movies like Star Trek and This Means War have catapulted him on to the global stage. When the 33-year-old actor was spotted in Methven recently, many of our readers had never heard of him. Chris who? Even those who struggled to recognise him, however, will have taken notice of the instant media frenzy his drink-driving charge created. The story was prominent on New Zealand news outlets, but the global reach of the event is becoming more apparent every day. Media outlets all over the world have reported his run-in with the Mid Canterbury law and Methven has made newspapers and websites in numerous different countries and languages, from New Zealand to New York and from Ashburton to Ankara. News crews from all over the country and several overseas outlets will be descending on Baring Square on Monday morning to capture Mr Pine’s walk of shame into the courthouse. Court officials are desperately planning for a media circus and trying to figure out how they can run an ordinary court day amidst all these unexpected visitors. Local tourism boss Nigel Birt is rubbing his hands. His budgets may be on the chopping block, but exposure for the district around this court case is worth millions of dollars. Many Methven locals are feeling sorry for Mr Pine’s plight, who appeared to have been a ‘pleasant’ guest who misjudged his alcohol intake and was marginally over the drink-driving limit. His indiscretion may have been minor and, judging by other cases, he may hope to escape with a fine or even without conviction, but the impact and legacy of this case for Mid Canterbury will be far from minor.

YOUR VIEW Rules Racehorses were banned from utilising the grass verge parallel to State Highway 1 because of the damage it caused. Obviously these rules do not apply to the dairy farmer who is using the verge as his own private laneway. The damage just beyond his underpass is overt, however I am sure he is making financial recompence to the tax and ratepaying Ashburton community. Or is this another example of socialising the costs of dairying whilst privatising the profits?

We can’t let Santa Parade die Phill Hooper OFF THE AIR


t’s not exactly a highlight on my calendar each year, in fact I could hand on heart tell you, I don’t enjoy it very much at all. The Santa Parade for me means walking along East Street with a silly Santa hat on, waving at hundreds of people. Not my idea of a good time! But I see first-hand how much the kids on the Santa float enjoy it and I see the kids on the side of the road light up when they spot the big fella in the red suit. So it was with sadness I read Guardian reporter Sue Newman’s piece on Wednesday that the Santa Parade was in jeopardy.

Surely a growing town like ours can’t let a family event like this die, for the kids’ sake. I can understand the business association wanting to cut ties with the event. It sounds like they have enough problems with membership struggles without having to chase sponsorship for an event with no direct return. In saying that though, if you were a business in the town centre, why wouldn’t you be open on Santa Parade day? Why isn’t the day promoted as a real “Christmas Shopping Day” topped off with the parade? I understand it costs around $6000 to run the Santa Parade – $2000 of that is for road closures. I would love to see the Ashburton District Council jump on board and cover the cost of closing the roads. The rest is for advertising, chessboard entertainment (face painters etc) and prizes. Maybe a certain radio station and pa-

per could join forces to take the event on. My Santa Parade wishlist would look something like this: ■ It would happen around three weeks before Christmas on a Saturday. ■ The day would be a real shopping day, with all the shops in the CBD open. ■ Entertainment on chessboard from 9am till noon, when the Santa Parade would commence. ■ The ADC to cover the cost of road closures ■ Local media to cover the cost of advertising the event. ■ More local businesses making up floats. ■ More clowns and cartoon characters. ■ All vehicles and floats in the parade MUST have a Christmas or children’s theme. It is a Christmas Parade NOT an advertising opportunity. ■ The very successful New

Life Church Christmas in the Park on the same afternoon/evening. Now there is no event back at Mona Square I believe it’s also time to go back to the parade going north up East Street and NOT turning around at the clock tower and heading back past for a second time. We have a challenge ahead of us Mid Canterbury, but were are around nine months out from the 2014 edition of the Santa parade, so I reckon now is a great time to get the wheels in motion to make this one the best ever. Now is the time for all those people who commented on my facebook page that last year’s parade was crap, to walk the walk now you’ve talked the talk. Now’s the time for local businesses, sports clubs, churches, cultural groups, services, clubs and INDIVIDUALS to think and plan how they could be involved.

In brief


No sign of jet ‘debris’ Planes searching an area where Chinese satellites spotted possible debris from a missing Malaysian passenger jet have found no sign of wreckage, officials say, dimming hopes of a breakthrough in the mystery. China said its satellites had detected three large floating objects in a suspected crash site near where the Malaysia Airlines plane, which disappeared Saturday on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, lost contact. But Vietnam said yesterday that two of its planes dispatched to the area had found no trace of the airliner. Reeling from a storm of criticism about its handling of the crisis, Malaysia also sent an aircraft to investigate the reported sighting in the South China Sea, pledging to pursue all “concrete clues” - but that it had also found nothing as of yesterday afternoon. “Nil sighting,” the Malaysian air force’s director-general of operations, Affendi Buang, said. The search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 - which entered a sixth day yesterday - has been blighted by false alarms, swirling rumours and contradictory statements about its fate. “Every day it just seems like it’s an eternity,” Danica Weeks, whose husband Paul was on board, told CNN from their home in the Australian city of Perth. Fighting back tears, she described how Paul had left his wedding ring and watch with her for safekeeping before starting his journey to a mining venture in Mongolia. “I’m praying that I can give (them) back to him. It’s all I can hold onto. Because there’s no finality to it and we’re not getting any information,” she said. China’s state science and technology administration said a satellite had captured images of the objects in a suspected

A total of 31 people were killed and nine are missing after two trucks carrying dangerous chemicals collided in a Chinese tunnel, triggering a huge explosion, authorities say. A methanol leak from the front vehicle started a fire, which caused the blast and ignited other trucks and their loads in the tunnel in Jincheng, in the northern province of Shanxi province, the city government’s news office said in a statement. Previous Chinese media reports had said 12 people died at the scene and another later in hospital after the accident. More than 200,000 people die on Chinese roads every year. - AFP

crash area on Sunday, and the information was being analysed. China will keep up the search “as long as there is a glimmer of hope”, Premier Li Keqiang said. The passengers included 153 Chinese citizens, and Li told his once-a-year press conference: “Those people’s families and friends are burning with anxiety.” The search for the plane now encompasses both sides of peninsular Malaysia, over an area of nearly 27,000 nautical miles (more than 90,000 square kilometres) - roughly the size of Portugal - and involves the navies and air forces of multiple nations. Theories about the possible cause of the disappearance range from a catastrophic technical failure to a mid-air explo-

sion, hijacking, rogue missile strike and even pilot suicide. The objects detected by the Chinese satellite were seen roughly 200 kilometres east of the location of the plane’s last reported contact roughly midway between the coasts of Malaysia and Vietnam. The new information prompted the focus of the search to swing back to the original flight path, after a shift in recent days to Malaysia’s west coast - far from the last known location. “We will look at all areas especially the ones with concrete clues,” a spokesman for Malaysia’s civil aviation department said after the Chinese announcement. But Vietnam Civil Aviation Authority deputy director Dinh Viet Thang said that two aircraft sent to inspect areas near

where the suspicious objects were detected by China “have returned and we found nothing so far”. And the US Navy, which is contributing two destroyers and two surveillance planes to the vast search, appeared to be treating the latest news with caution. “I do not have specific information about that satellite image,” Commander William Marks of the USS Blue Ridge, the command ship of the US Seventh Fleet, told CNN. US authorities said their spy satellites had detected no sign of a mid-air explosion. It also emerged that months before the Malaysia Airlines jet vanished, US regulators had warned of a “cracking and corrosion” problem on Boeing 777s that could lead to a drastic drop in cabin pressure and possible mid-air break-up. - AFP


Police back in the dock at Pistorius trial Oscar Pistorius’ defence lawyer has grilled a police forensics expert for a second day, questioning his qualifications in a bid to discredit key evidence from the night the Paralympian shot dead his girlfriend.

testified that Pistorius was likely on his stumps when he bashed on the door with the cricket bat, contradicting the accused’s account that he was wearing his prostheses at the time. Vermeulen earlier admitted police may have mishandled the evidence, with footprints matching police boots appear-

Japanese electronics giant Panasonic says it will give employees sent to China a wage premium to compensate for the country’s hazardous air pollution, in a possible first for an international company. The move was part of a wider deal reached in Japan’s annual labour talks on Thursday which saw major firms, including Panasonic and Toyota, agree to boost workers’ salaries for the first time in years, amid concerns about an economic slowdown after a sales tax rise next month. A Panasonic spokesman confirmed the pollution-linked pay premium for its expatriate workers, but declined to give further details or say how many such workers it has in China, which has extensive trade and business links with Japan. - AFP

Star ‘not well liked’ Former female crew members of the popular television series Hey Dad! have told a court that star Robert Hughes made them feel uncomfortable by sleeping naked on set. Hughes, 65, pleaded not guilty to 11 sexual and indecent assault charges stemming from allegations he abused five girls in the 1980s and 1990s. During his trial yesterday, former costume designer Lauryn Jackson told Sydney’s District Court that Hughes would often sleep between filming. She said he asked her to come into his dressing room and “shake him” awake. On occasions, Ms Jackson said he would be naked except for a sheet draped over his private parts. At other times he would just be naked, she said. Charmaine Stubbs, who worked in wardrobe, told the court that in one instance Hughes looked at her and then “dropped his pants”, exposing his penis.

The company’s investment statement forecast a net profit of $41.8 million for the year to June 2014, more than doubling to $95.4 million in the June 2015 year.

New Zealand food prices fell in February on a seasonal dip for fruit and vegetables, while more expensive dairy products underpinned an annual gain in prices. The food price index slipped 1 per cent in February following a 1.2 per cent rise in January, according to Statistics New Zealand. In the year, food prices were up 0.2 per cent, the smallest annual gain in nine months. The monthly decline was led by a 6.5 per cent drop in vegetable prices and a 5.1 per cent reduction in fruit, as tomato and apple prices weakened. - APNZ

Reserve Bank governor Graeme Wheeler: More increases?

BNZ head of research Stephen Toplis supports the central bank’s approach to signalling its intentions. “If a central bank is going to commence a tightening cycle it has to give a clear message that it means business and will do whatever it takes to ensure the economy is managed into a noninflationary state,” Toplis said. “Wheeler has given the clear message that interest rates will simply keep on rising until such time that the economy and its participants behave.” Toplis contrasted this with the approach of previous governor Alan Bollard who had been “almost apologetic” when raising rates and created the perception rate hikes would stop after

each move higher. “We believe this was one of the reason why ultimately rates had to go as high as they did.” The more dovish reaction from ASB’s chief economist Nick Tuffley put more weight on the caveats the Reserve Bank has attached to its guidance. In particular the bank said it would carefully watch how households responded to higher rates - something they have not seen since 2007, apart from two increases in 2010 which were promptly reversed after the February 2011 earthquake. A key difference between then and now is that this time nearly three-quarters of the mortgage debt is at floating rates or fixed for less than a year. - NZH

Bank ‘full steam ahead’ Reserve Bank governor Graeme Wheeler has signalled an aggressive, front-loaded start to the interest rate cycle now under way. He delivered the rise he had all but promised in the official cash rate from 2.5 to 2.75 per cent yesterday and indicated that the only question in the bank’s mind at this stage - if the facts change it will change its mind is whether there will be another three or four similar increases by the end of the year. The interest rate projections the monetary policy statement has pencilled in suggest further OCR hikes April, June and July. That is what the economists at the BNZ and Westpac expect him to do. ANZ is picking April and June, with a risk of another in July, as does Deutsche Bank with the caveat around a July move being whether it has started to look by then that 100 basis points this year will be enough. ASB is picking OCR hikes in April and July, but a pause in June. Looking further out - where there is more uncertainty around such projections - the bank is foreshadowing a cumulative 200 basis points of tightening by the end of next year and another 50 points in 2016, by which point monetary policy will have veered from tailwind to headwind.

Food prices fall


The Government says shares in state-owned power generator and retailer Genesis Energy will be priced in a $1.35 to $1.65 range and will include a one for 15 loyalty bonus share offer as a sweetener for New Zealand investors. The proportion of shares to be sold would be announced on March 26, Finance Minister Bill English said. The Government has previously said it will sell between 30 and 49 per cent of Genesis Energy. Based the indicative price range, prospective 2015 financial year implied gross dividend yield was forecast to range from 13.5 per cent to 16.5 per cent. Genesis is expected to list on the NZX on April 17. The bookbuild will take place on March 27 and March 28 and the final price will be announced on the night of March 28.

English said that to encourage New Zealand investor participation, New Zealanders who bought shares and who held them for 12 months would be eligible for one loyalty bonus share for every 15 shares held, with a cap of 2000 bonus shares. “The process will allow the Crown to determine the expected demand from the various investor pools, at which point we will decide and announce the level of sell-down for the bookbuild process,” State Owned Enterprises Minister Tony Ryall said in a statement. The loyalty bonus share issue is more generous than the one employed for last year’s float of Mighty River Power, which involved a two-year wait for bonus shares, issued at a ratio of one-for-25. The Meridian offer involved instalment receipts. Chairman Jenny Shipley,

Stockton opencast mine jobs are in the firing line following a further fall in the international spot price for coking coal. Solid Energy’s acting chief executive Garry Diack said spot prices had “tumbled off the cliff” in the last few days. If low prices were reflected in Solid Energy’s new export contracts, jobs would go. Stockton - Solid Energy’s main export earner - would bear the brunt of any cuts. Solid Energy currently employs 561 at Stockton, 143 fewer than when the company hit the skids almost two years ago. In addition, hundreds of contractors’ jobs have gone at the mine. - WPN

Spammers force changes Thousands of Xtra customers will be unable to access their email account from Monday until they change their email security settings. An additional layer of security was being added to Xtra email after a spate of security issues, Telecom and Yahoo said. The additional encryption setting would be applied from Monday, making email more secure, particularly on public wifi connections, the companies said. That security layer would affect third party clients who use programmes such as Microsoft Outlook or use Android devices to check their messages - about a third of Telecom’s customers, a Telecom spokeswoman said. “Some of those people will already have the settings changed, but there will be a proportion who haven’t done that. “We’re talking thousands (of clients),’’ she said. The Telecom system would not be affected by thousands logging on at the same time to change their settings. Because it was third party clients, Telecom would not be able to have a message show up when users logged on to check

their emails, the spokeswoman said. But the company had been trying to contact all those affected by email, SMS or phone calls. The email service had been badly hit by spammers, forcing some email accounts to be locked down until users changed their password. Users who have already changed their settings to SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) or who use their account via webmail or Yahoo mobile applications will not need to change. Telecom Retail chief executive Chris Quin said the sooner the additional security can be applied, the better. “We’ve been contacting affected Xtra users by phone, SMS, email and post, and while we’re pleased to see a number of customers have chosen to make the change themselves, there is still a way to go. “We’ve made the call that, when it comes to their online security, our customers want us to do all we can protect them and they don’t want us to muck around with it.’’ He said Telecom would continue to roll out more security on the Xtra email platform.

Properly inflated tyres on a vehicle save fuel and reduce accidents, and that’s especially important on trucks that travel long distances carrying freight. Aperia’s Halo is a system that monitors tyre pressure and automatically inflates tyres as needed. The easily retrofitted Halo is a self-contained pump that generates pressure when rotated. It has a pendulum-like mass, similar to a self-winding watch, that hangs while the pump is rotating with the wheel. The relative rotational motion is used to create a pumping action, adding air up to a preset maximum. - NZH

Fixing the symptoms

“We’re confident this setting change will further assist that effort, but we encourage all email users to keep their wits about them and consider how they can play a role in preventing the circulation of spam. “This means never clicking suspicious links contained in emails, which can perpetuate spammers’ activity, even if the email appears to come from a friend or family member.’’ Users were advised to regularly update account settings with a strong, difficult-to-predict password, and never to use the same password for their

Canada’s Boundary Dam coal power plant emits 1.1 million tonnes of CO2 each year. Until this year, that is. From the middle of the year that number will drop by 90%. The power plant’s exhaust will be passed through a solvent that binds to CO2. That mix is then heated to release the gas which is then piped to a nearby oilfield and saline aquifer, and pumped several kilometres underground. That seems a lot like moving the problem. - NZH

A sticky solution Some companies are using CO2 as the raw material for making products including superglue and fertiliser. Liquid Light will produce ethylene glycol, the raw material for making polyester fibre, plastic bottles and antifreeze, using catalysts that can turn CO2 and electricity into more than 60 carbon-based chemicals. Their module is about the size of a coffee table. Dioxide Materials on the other hand, will produce acetic acid, a chemical used to make products like paint and glue. Turning dangerous waste products into useful materials is great news. - NZH


No more government funding for UFB Ultra-fast broadband contract changes don’t address the fundamental problems Chorus is facing from wholesale broadband price cuts, say analysts. Chorus and the government body looking after the UFB scheme announced changes this

week to make the internet initiative more cost-effective and help reduce some of the infrastructure company’s $1 billion funding gap for the project. Chorus will not get any more government funding under the changes nor will the Gov-

ernment remove the network builder’s obligations to finish its part of the UFB project by the end of 2019. Crown Fibre Holdings is responsible for $929 million of taxpayer investment in Chorus’ part of the UFB network,

under which fibre lines will be rolled out to 75 per cent of the country. Chorus and CFH have been in talks about possible UFB contract changes since December last year. - NZH

Marshall to make starting debut The Benji Marshall era at the Blues is finally set to begin, with the league convert in line to make his first start for the franchise. Marshall (right) has been named at fullback for the Blues in their clash with the Lions at Ellis Park on Sunday morning (NZT), one of five changes from last weekend’s defeat to the Bulls. Marshall was omitted entirely from that squad and, after playing just 20 minutes to date this season, he was looking forward to his first serious contribution.

“It’s exciting getting my first start,” he said. “I’ve been looking forward to getting another taste since the first 20 minutes I got against the Highlanders so I’ve just had to have a bit of patience, bide my time a bit and the time has come so I’m looking forward to the challenge.” Marshall conceded it had been a challenging few weeks after failing to feature off the bench in the win over the Crusaders and being left out of the 23 last week. “It’s been a tough couple of

weeks, patience-wise. It’s a bit of the other side of the coin for me - I’m used to being in a starting line-up in league and then coming back and having to be a bit more patient. “So to get the opportunity to start, you’ve just got to take your opportunities and this is my chance.” After playing as first five in his only appearance this season, coach Sir John Kirwan said he had been impressed with the way Marshall had been training at fullback.

“We’re keeping with the theme of really trying to create some internal competition and, although that’s sometimes difficult when you haven’t had a win, we believe in what we’re doing,” Kirwan said. “We believe that Benji deserves a start at fullback - he’s jumping out of his skin, he’s ready to go, he’s spent the last couple of weeks really refining that role so we’ll put him in there.” Charles Piutau moves from fullback to wing to accommodate the injection of Marshall. - APNZ

Junior graded champs The interclub season wound down last weekend, but the 71 juniors have signed up for a shot at claiming personal glory in the Mid Canterbury Junior Graded tennis tournament this weekend. The individuals play in the same grade they would normally, from junior C grade up to B grade but there are no club ties this time around. Singles matches will be played in separate boys and girls draws, while doubles will be mixedgender. The two day tournament will be at the Ashburton Trust Tennis Centre, with play underway at 8.30am both days.

Round robin rematch Lauriston will be out for redemption tomorrow as they take on the Tech Sharks in a rematch of last week’s final round robin match. With a four-way tie leading into the semi-finals of senior cricket’s Muirhead Rosebowl, the semi-final fixtures were decided earlier this week. The calculations came back with defending Muirhead Rosebowl champions Lauriston on top, Allenton second, the Tech Stags third and the Tech Sharks fourth. That means the semi-finals draw is a replay of last weekend’s with Lauriston again hosting the Sharks, with the Sharks taking the win last week, while Allenton get to host the Stags after claiming a win next door at the Ashburton Domain. “We will just be looking to improve across the board, especially in our top order batting which didn’t really fire last weekend,” Lauriston captain Nick Gilbert said.

Nissan sets V8 pace Picking up where fellow surprise packet Volvo left off, Nissan’s Michael Caruso has topped the timesheets at the final practice session ahead of V8 Supercars qualifying at the Australian Grand Prix yesterday. Volvo were the toast of the recent season-opening Adelaide round after 20-year-old driver Scott McLaughlin marked the Swedish manufacturers’ first Australian touring car sighting in 28 years with a podium finish. And Nissan appear next to threaten the Holden-Ford stranglehold judging by Caruso’s blistering one minute, 56.23 second lap in the second and final 30 minute practice session yesterday. - AAP

Nets on Pierce-power Paul Pierce scored 17 of his 29 points in the third quarter as the Brooklyn Nets continued their mastery over reigning NBA champions Miami Heat with a nailbiting 96-95 win yesterday. 36-yearold Pierce paced the offence for the Nets who have beaten the Heat in all three meetings this season and break an eight-game losing streak at AmericanAirlines Arena. Miami had the ball after a timeout with 3.5 seconds left, but Shaun Livingston knocked away a pass that was intended for LeBron James in front of the basket to ice the victory in front of a crowd of 19,616. Pierce said two-time defending NBA champion Heat have lost their “fear factor.” “On that last play, we got the steal and let the clock run out,” Pierce said. “We know when we play good team defence that we can - AFP beat them now.”

Mid Canterbury’s latest crop of hockey talent descended on the Ashburton hockey turf on Wednesday night in the lead-up to the season starting in April. The final session of the two-week Small Sticks Hockey Programme came to an end, giving about 50 beginning hockey players, including Mitchell Lye, 6, a taste for the sport through drills and skills sessions. The youngsters have now been encouraged to join a club, with more sessions being held on Saturday mornings for registered players.


Bailie’s first taste of international racing By Myles HuMe

It will be a weekend of firsts for rising Ashburton superbike star Bailie Perriton. The Ashburton teen is travelling to Australia for the first international race meeting of his career where he will line up in the first round of the $35,000 FX 300 Cup in Wakefield Park, New South Wales. For the current NZ 250cc production class leader it will all be new territory, marking his first trip abroad, racing at a track he has never seen before and riding a bike he hasn’t even touched yet. But that hasn’t wavered the level-headed 16-year-old who will ride with Wellington teammate and superbike rider Sloan

County Lions Club Ashburton County Lions club recently attended to a full agenda of business, presided over by President Lilian Wakelin. Visitors from Mayfield & Districts, and from Ashburton Lions were welcomed, as was Janice Rickard, prospective member, and Trevor Croy, guest speaker. Following a beautiful meal, Lion Jacqui Welch introduced our speaker, Trevor, who spoke to us about the Advance Ashburton Foundation – its history; its format; its protocols for protection of investors’ funds; its philanthropy. He brought up-to-theminute information on community initiatives

Frost, who has been the driving force behind getting him competing overseas. Despite only learning he would be heading to Australia a month ago, he is feeling ready. “I am very excited to be going to new tracks and race against opponents who will push me to the limit. I have studied the tracks watching internet footage and have had some first hand information from those who have raced there before,” Perriton said. His Australian campaign will also be supported by ESPC Services Pty and Australian superbike rider Robbie Bugden. The Kiwistars team member has already pieced together a strong season, setting new lap records at both Ruapuna and Levels race tracks in January, supported by the Foundation, particularly the Rural Firefighters Welfare Fund; and the Child Literacy unit, the launch of which was taking place a he spoke. Lion Cynthia Young extended thanks for a very informative talk, and presented a gift. The long service of several members was recognized – Lions Mary Francis and Trish Campbell, both 25 years; Jan Stewart, 20 years; and Fiona Williamson and Fern Blake, 10 years. Lion Christine Stewart was presented the Club President Excellence Award 2013-14; and President Lilian a silver membership award for introducing new members. The club received an International Presidents Retention Campaign Award for maintaining

and also beating both the current New Zealand 250 champion and the reigning European junior champion in the national championship series. The FX 300 is a five-round

Australian Superbike Championship series which will see further races around the southern and eastern states of the country. But Perriton will have no time to rest as he sets his sights on Taupo the following weekend and Manfeild Park a few days later, where he will be aiming to secure the highly-prized 2014 New Zealand title. Following his national and international races, he will be returning to race at the Methven Mountain Thunder on Easter Saturday, where he last year won the 150/250cc title. This year he will be contesting the premier class Formula Methven onboard a Suzuki SV650, and hoping to go one better than his father Damian who came second in 2013.

a net growth in membership 2012-14. Lion Fern Blake, 2VDG District 202J, conducted the induction of our new member and the club is pleased to welcome Lion Janice Rickard. Commitments of support for, and reminders of those previously made, were given for Mayfield A & P Assoc contract; club visiting; Red Puppy Appeal; attendance at District Convention; visit to Violinos; outing to Cholmomdeley Home. Letters of thanks were received from Lion Gwenda Andrews for support in her bereavement; from CanInspire for service given; and from Girl Guiding South Canterbury for donation. Reports were given of a healthy financial situation; and of a successful Mystery Bus

Trip to the North Canterbury area. Further events were notified – Red Puppy Appeal; Young Speechmaker; Accessories Sale 3 May; catering for Masonic Lodge; sandwich making for Swap Meet; Lions longest lunch 4 April on the checkerboard; Zone Old Time Dance 11 April; club Changeover 18 June. Zara Kircher is being sponsored to Berwick Outdoor Experience; a decorated cake will be entered in the District Convention competition; and support for the concept of Ashburton area Lions Clubs furnishing a room at Cholmondeley Home was given. The usual lively tail twisting with Lion Jackie Ryan and drawing of the raffle, won by Lion Ngaire Farrell, concluded a busy evening.

In brief

Go Go Dingo top prospect Reliable sprinter Go Go Dingo can continue the good run of recent form for trainer Terri Rae at today’s Ashburton meeting. The six-year-old looks a leading chance to add another win to his record when he steps out in the Smallbone Motors Open Handicap. The likelihood of a good track will also further his cause. Go Go Dingo, whose stablemate Madam Victoria claimed last Saturday’s Listed NZB Airfreight Stakes, has won six of his 37 starts and he has weighed in on another 20 occasions.

He showed his short course quality in the spring when he defeated smart mare Arietta in an open handicap at Riccarton and the only times he has subsequently been out of the frame were in the Gr.2 Coupland’s Mile and the Listed Timaru Cup, both over 1600 metres. Five of Go Go Dingo’s career wins have come at today’s trip of 1400 metres, a distance at which he also finished a creditable fifth behind the Group One performer Lady Kipling at Hastings on his sole visit to the North Island. At his most recent appearance

the gelding was a close fifth behind Anzac Star after missing the jump in a competitive Wingatui handicap. The former northerner Tomo Valea has made good progress since he joined Michael and Tarsha Stokes’ Waikuku yard and promises to be prominent again. He was a winner three runs back on the Ashburton track before he made up a stack of ground for fifth after missing the start badly at Wingatui. Last time out he also hit the line strongly for second to the in-form Pinsgold, - APNZ

Go Go Dingo’s trainer Terri Rae

Confederate – Strong win over a similar field three starts ago and looks the top pick with the last run at them. Lamaze – In terrific form and tries ever so hard. Claim helps and should be close up again. Stormy Rain – Big weight but has earned it. Strong distance credentials are appealing. Ya Dreamin Jonesy – Yet to hit form this campaign but fitter now and will get few better opportunities.

Race 2:

My Rules – Up in distance and looks to have the ability edge over this line up. Four Seas – Unlucky last start and staying test appears to be his forte. Mr Wiz – Pleasing third here two starts back, honest and will give a good sight. Rosheen – Sound runs lately albeit a few lengths off the winner. This distance may help close that gap.

Race 3:

Kings Pal – Finished with purpose at Timaru and should cope with the longer journey. Each way prospect. Encharm – Southern form has been strong. Has had set back but on target again to perform well. McMay – Tough staying mare and likely leader. Will be hard to stop if allowed own rules. Commander Cody – Capable at this level and hasn’t always enjoyed the best of luck. Include in all the multis. Willow Park – Very honest mare, never far away. With the run to suit she can be in the finish at


good odds.

Race 4:

Gallant Trick – Has had plenty of chances but draw suits and could surprise at pleasing odds. Indian Burt – Trainer often has them ready and demonstrated ability in only start. Put in. Zuleika – Sound debut when well-supported. With the experience looks hardest to beat in an even field. Merci Cheri – Well-bred debutant with a strong trials background. Capable of featuring in the finish. Young Jim – First starter with trial form and CWJ up. Despite the draw could easily threaten.

Race 5:

Homeland – Senior rider and jumping with the field helped secure an effortless win last start. Repeat could be on the cards. Dowra – Looked good enough in maiden win to suggest he could win again in handicap class at short notice. Last run better than it looked. Latin Saint – Expect a forward showing on the home surface now that she is more seasoned. Delirium – Ace draw aids preferred leading position. Should be thereabouts. Lickwish – Has speed and ability but does not always race generously. Boilover chance if she does.

Race 6:

Halo Buster – In great form, as is rider, and on favourite track which points to another top run. Lights Up – Hard to beat with the run to suit. Could win but is no anchor bet. Bella Vi – In fine form prior to failure in a Group 3 event. Wide draw no help but better than

Race 7:

Maria Santos – Repeat of last run would be enough to win this. Draw no help but will lengthen the odds. Hi Yo Ko – Changed racing pattern to lead last time and nearly won. Repeat likely from the favourable gate. Royal chance. My Chino – Experience from Cental Otago racing will help and should be one of the hardest to beat. Setyourspiritfree – Draw no help at all but rewarded patience of connections with a super debut which showcased her ability. Watch the tote! Tricia’O – Sound at the trials and high profile connections don’t waste time on under-performing stock.

Race 8:

Dr Dee Bee – Loves the home track and has run well in better fields recently. Big chance here and will be hard to run down. Go Go Dingo – 1400m is more his go, and more than capable of getting back into the winners circle. Emerald Queen – Classy mare preparing for bigger things. Could still win this, despite having room for improvement.

Asaint Sheaint – In solid form and last run was on an unsuitable surface. Could trail and be the upsetter.

Race 9:

Zhanim – Won maiden here at the trip and freshened since a Guineas tilt. Looks too good for these. Crystal Fox – Has had some tough runs lately and given a more economical run in transit looks capable of placing at least. Falzano – Has form in better North Island fields and tote will be the best guide. Win chance. Sir Daniel – Good win here two back and this is well within his reach for the McKay stable, favoured distance and track adds to tick box.

most in this. Jacks Run – Easy Wingatui winner and then satisfactory last time. Place might be best. Ketchme – Has run well in better fields and certainly going well enough to threaten. Easy/ soft track would be ideal. Something Zed – Much improved after changing stable and looks to have real potential.

Wizard at Methven Four-time New Zealand Trotting Cup winning driver Todd “The Wizard” Mitchell will be the Methven Trotting Club’s guest drive at their annual March meeting, next week. Following on from two successful appearances by Tony Herlihy in the past two years, Mitchell was offered the opportunity to try his luck on the picturesque Mt Harding course for the first time and jumped at the opportunity. Regarded by many as the best grass track surface in New Zealand, the Methven track is also renowned as a tricky track to win a race on and was described by Herlihy as one of the toughest tracks to win a race on that he has driven on. Trainers interested in utilising his services can contact Matt Markham on 0275107115.

Group One contender Lady Royale will make an appearance at her local meeting next Wednesday. “She’ll have a gallop left-handed between races with So Wotif and I’m quite happy with both of them,” Pukekohe co-trainer Richard Collett said. A last-start winner of the Group 2 Matamata Breeders’ Stakes, she will make her next appearance in the Gr.1 The Oaks Stud Manawatu Sires’ Produce with a change of rider. Both Sam Spratt and Johnathon Parkes, who have won on the filly, have prior commitments at Awapuni. “It looks like Leith Innes will be riding her,” Collett said. - APNZ

Stig eyes Aussie trip Stig is becoming trotting’s version of the Never-ending Story. The veteran trotter, already the hero of one of the greatest comebacks in racing history, takes on rivals up to seven years younger than him at Addington tonight. Remarkable as that is, if he performs up to the level trainer Paul Nairn expects, he will be on a plane to Melbourne next week for the A$350,000 Great Southern Star. Rising 12-year-olds embarking on Trans Tasman campaigns may be unheard of but Nairn says even after a disappointing season, Stig’s connections are keen for a crack at the richest prize in Southern Hemisphere trotting. - NZH

Big numbers for Derby Nominations closed yesterday with the New Zealand Metropolitan Trotting Club for the running of the 2014 Muscara Standardbreds New Zealand Derby at Addington on Friday April 11. At the time of closing, 27 three year old pacers had been nominated for the prestigious event that this year carries a total stake of $175,000 an increase of $25,000 from 2013. Notable nominations included Woodlands Stud Northern Derby victor Tiger Tara and the next three home in that race Locharburn, Maxim and Sky Major. 10 nominations came from leading Canterbury trainers Mark Purdon, Natalie Rasmussen and Robert Dunn with six from the Purdon/ Rasmussen partnership and four from the Dunn stable. - NZH

Sport Settling for the silver BY MYLES HUME


Hinds cyclist Lauren Ellis has made a strong start to her New Zealand Elite Track Nationals 2014 bid with a silver in the 3000m individual pursuit last night. Ellis claimed second fastest time in qualifying with a rapid 3:38:658 at the Avantidrome in Cambridge, taking her to the gold medal race where she missed out to London 2012 team-mate Jaimie Nielsen, who also won the title last year. The Mid Canterbury rider finished with a time of 3:39:079, Nielsen was on top during the race with a 1.8 second lead at the split. In the bronze medal race, Auckland’s Georgia Williams claimed the third place medal, overcoming Rushlee Buchanan, of Te Awamutu. Ashburton teen Alex Hooper failed to make the 4000m men’s individual pursuit final after qualifying 12th with a time of 4:36:491. The event was eventually won by 19-year-old and top qualifier Dylan Kennett with a time of 4:28:757, crossing the line ahead of Patrick Bevin. Another local rider, Daniel Rafferty, competed in the men’s elite 250m time trail, but did not feature on the podium after finishing seventh overall with a 19.072. Honours went to Auckland’s Ethan Mitchell with a 17.547 followed by Southland’s Matthew Archibald. More racing is set to continue through to Sunday.


Hamilton happy to wear F1 favouritism BY STEVE LARKIN Lewis Hamilton is happy to wear favouritism for the Melbourne grand prix - he’s just not sure it’s warranted. Mercedes’ Hamilton (right) and team-mate Nico Rosberg are a clear tip from rival drivers to

claim a season-opening triumph in Melbourne. But as F1 introduces its biggest rule changes for a generation turbo hybrid engines restricted by fuel limits, and changes to the body of cars - Hamilton says any predictions are worthless. “All the media are talking us

up. Favourite driver, favourite team. I just don’t know what’s going to happen this weekend,” Hamilton said. “Everybody is in the same boat. There’s lots of us trying to find where the advantages can be.” Unlike other drivers, Hamilton and Rosberg were content with

their pre-season testing. But Hamilton, the 2008 world champion, said he was yet to feel comfortable in the new car. “Last year, the car felt better ... but that car was in its fourth year. Now, we’re in a new phase and it’s just something that takes some time to get used to.” - AAP
