Drug fumes lead to search for cannabis By Michelle Nelson and APNZ A person overcome by cannabis fumes triggered a major police operation in Rakaia on Wednesday evening. A 25 and 26-year-old were charged with cannabis cultivation after they were arrested about 5.30pm on Wednesday at a Mackie Street address. Sergeant Janine Bowden, of Ashburton, said Southern Police Communications were alerted after receiving a call from a person who had recently visited the house and felt unwell. “Due to concerns regarding what had caused the person to feel unwell, precautions were taken prior to entering the address to speak to the occupants,” she said. Police officers from Christchurch, Timaru, Selwyn and the Ashburton district attended the scene. The strong smell was identified as cannabis, and a search of the property uncovered a cultivating operation. Evidence and exhibits were collected and removed from the scene. Ambulance officers treated the person affected by the fumes, but did so around the corner on

Elizabeth Avenue, away from the contaminated area. It is not known whether further treatment was required. Police enquiries are continuing. Meanwhile, an electrician has said a home-grown cannabis operation in Carterton was the most dangerous wiring he’d seen in 40 years. Unemployed Craig Stewart Mclachlan pleaded guilty to cultivating cannabis and the theft of power when he appeared in the Masterton District Court this week. Mclachlan, 39, had set up a cannabis grow room, complete with heat lamps and fans, in the Carterton house and rewired the power meter, to gain free electricity for the room. By doing so, he put the homeowner and neighbours at risk of fire, said Judge Bill Hastings. An electrician used by police examined the meter and said it was the most dangerous wiring he had come across in his 40 years’ experience and a major fire risk. Police said Mclachlan had been stealing power for about two years, which coincided with a change in the electricity provider to Tiny Mighty Power in 2011.

Old farm implements given new lease on life Whether you were in the market for a mobile pig sty, a yacht named Grunter, or a box of rusty bolts - the Tinwald saleyards was the place to be yesterday. Punters were out in force at the PGG

Wrightson 48th annual implement sale, some looking to snap up a bargain while others were there to watch the action and catch up with old friends. And there was plenty of choice.

The lineup included all the usual farm equipment; tractors and implements, fencing gear, generators and so forth – lined up with all manner of sundry items vendors were keen to realise for cash.

PGG Wrighton auctioneer Greg Cooke said more lots went under the hammer this year, and the 330 registered buyers was also an increase on recent years. He also reported a good clearance.

Skate park plans need public input By Susan Sandys Kidzmethven members are excited this week to release an ambitious skate park plan for the ski town, and are seeking feedback. The Methven Skate Park is to be constructed on Ashburton District Council-leased land adjoining the Methven Railway Reserve on Main Street. But just when it will be constructed and how much it will cost are all questions for the future, says the group which has been driving the project for the past five years. Kidzmethven representatives Liz McMillan, Sally-Ann Kircher and Tania Sheridan are pleased to have got to the stage of releasing plans, drawn by Australian design

company Playce. They have been able to do this thanks to community donations which have been steadily coming in over the years, totalling $25,000, money which should also cover getting the project to the resource consent stage. The skate park - for skateboarders, scooter riders and BMXers - is to comprise three spaces - a skate plaza or park, a modular moveable skate area and a bowl. Kidzmethven have displayed plans at the Methven i-SITE, and want feedback from the public as to whether stage one should have plaza or park style features. People can submit their preference at the i-SITE, or go to the Kidzmethven Facebook page. Mrs Kircher said the skate park would be of an urban design, com-

plementing the town, and would be an attractive social space. “It’s a good social space for the kids, somewhere kids can take ownership and have their place, their bit of town that’s theirs.” The location, on land owned by Chorus and leased by the council, was central, well lit, had a good street frontage and was close to public toilets. Ms McMillan was pleased to see the project reach plan stage. “And it should be easier to fundraise now because people can see the plans instead of just talking about it.” Since its inception, Kidzmethven has been involved in other projects such as creating a bike park in the town and improving and extending the railway reserve playground.

School stuck with big water bill

Any queries please contact 0800 ASHBURTON (0800-274-287).


By Myles Hume The Ashburton District Council has refused to write off a water meter charge totalling more than $6000 for Allenton School. And the school’s principal Graham Smith says he is “appalled and disappointed” with the decision. The school wrote to the council after it found itself with a $6246.70 bill for using more than 16,000

Tourists robbed A British couple have been left with nothing but the clothes on their backs after their campervan was broken into just a week after landing in New Zealand. Nicola Forsyth, 28, and Tom Hiscock, 33, were visiting Te Papa in Wellington when thieves broke into their van, parked nearby, and stole all their belongings. Everything was taken, including their backpacks with all their clothes and toiletries.

litres of water between September 2010 and December 2011. Mr Smith asked if the council would write off the charge because there were leaks on the school property caused by earthquakes, and the school did not use a large portion of that water. In 2010, Allenton School had a $10,379 bill written off by the council, and another totalling $1200 in 2011. At yesterday’s finance and community services committee meeting

it was decided the council would not write off a third water meter charge. Councillor Don McLeod said he sympathised with Allenton School, once being a principal himself at Mount Hutt College. He said he understood how “schools struggled to make ends meet”, but felt it was an issue that should be dealt with by the Ministry of Education. Fellow councillor John Leadley pointed to council policy that stated

organisations and entities could only have extensive water usage written off once to encourage early remedial work. “We have a precedent and if we break it on this occasion we could end up in all kinds of trouble,” he said. However, the committee later voted in favour a motion put forward by councillor Robin Kilworth, which would allow Allenton School to pay the bill off in installments and they would help them work

with the Ministry of Education. In its letter to the council, Allenton School stated it was a charitable organisation and the bill would impact on the way it delivered education to its pupils. Mr Smith said he was disappointed after the school carried out a substantial amount of work to fix the problem, spending more than $3000. He said the school usually used between 500-700 litres of water per quarter.

Technology on show at Helen Keller Day Last drinks Ashburton’s David Wilson is encouraging those with declining eyesight or hearing, and their families, to attend the annual Helen Keller Day later this month. Mr Wilson is chairperson of the Canterbury branch of the Royal New Zealand Foundation for the Blind, and as a sufferer of Ushers syndrome has both blindness and deafness. He thought it was particularly important that those who were beginning to lose their eyesight, such as elderly, made sure they did what they could to maintain and enhance their hearing, as they would have to rely on that more. “I really want people to get in early before it’s too late to learn,” Mr Wilson said. His eyesight was declining and he not only had hearing aids, but also other devices which helped him greatly. He said the Helen Keller Day would have many such devices and new technologies on show. There would be guest speakers, and a “boil up” offered for lunch. He believed the day would be of great value to blindness and deafness sufferers and their families, and it was often the families which such conditions affected the most. “It’s really a family issue, it takes so much of their time,” Mr Wilsons said. Mr Wilson will be attending with guide dog Gavin, who is his regular companion around Ashburton. The Helen Keller Day will be held in Christchurch on June 27, beginning at 10.30am at Bristol Street, Papanui. Those wanting more information can phone Mr Wilson on 308-6991.

Trade waste by-law under review When the Ashburton District Council’s trade waste by-law was introduced it created an uproar in Ashburton with most business owners seeing it as just another revenue collecting tool. The by-law is designed to ensure businesses who discharge waste into the town waste water system are on a register and if they’re discharging at a greater rate than a residential property, they pay a fee to do so. Most business owners objected and some refused to pay the fee. Many said they were already complying with a raft of environmental regulations that ensured they treated any contaminant materials on-site or disposed of them off-site. The council has now reviewed the bylaw and yesterday representatives of the Ashburton Business Association and the Riverside Industrial Estate

Vicious dog seized by officers Greymouth dog control officers had two opportunities to seize an unregistered bull mastiff before it viciously attacked a Runanga pensioner. The dog, Nui, was impounded after it tore 82-year-old Jimmy Hambley’s arm down to the bone. But it was stolen from the Greymouth pound 10 days ago in a “cunning” daytime jail-break while someone kept the dog officer distracted. It now turns out the Grey District Council had been told the dog was vicious after a contractor was frightened by it during a visit to the Runanga property two months before the attack. He told the Greymouth Star yesterday it had “tried to eat me”. He complained to the council dog control section, after finding Nui tied to a bed. “It was so strong that it was dragging the bed behind it and barking when I went to the Runanga address,” the contractor said. “That dog was the most vicious dog I have ever seen in my life and I told my colleagues not to go to the address; it’s a dangerous dog and should have been shot.”  - APNZ

spoke at a submissions hearing on the changes they wanted to see introduced. Business association board member Kieron Breakwell said business owners were concerned at inconsistencies in the current by-law that saw businesses that had already spent a large amount of money complying with discharge rules forced to pay the same as those who were flouting the by-law. The business association wanted the council to run a tiered system where compliant businesses or those who had no discharge did not pay, but abusers did. The other option could be for trade waste to be levied across the general rate, he said. The business association did not object to trade waste fees but it wanted these to be applied in a commonsense way that ensured compliant businesses and those with no waste were not penalized. “What we’re saying is the by law is not targeting the right people. The abusers

should pay and that’s not happening at the moment. And a lot who are paying do nothing more than have kitchen wash up and toilet facilities and yet they pay the same as the guy who’s pouring stuff down his drain.” He said there needed to be consistency and common sense in the way inspections were carried out. Councillor John Leadley who chaired the hearing panel, said the trade waste by law was designed to protect their waste water infrastructure. “A few years ago council had to replace 300 to 400 meters of sewer line in Tinwald because of what was coming out of one business. The general rate payer had to pay for that as there was no way of recouping costs.” With a $20 million investment in Ashburton’s waste water disposal system, Mr Leadley said the council could not afford to have this compromised by having damaging material dumped into the network.

Under the revised by-law, asset manager Andrew Guthrie said, a complying business could be exempt from any fees. It would still be on a register and subject to spot inspections, but compliance would ensure fees were waived. The revised by-law would be applied differently. An education programme could also be developed, Mr Guthrie said. “When the revised by-law is applied, more people will drop out and will have no charges but more will drop into the conditional bracket too. It won’t be done by just a business type, it will be the individual, this will be site specific.” For the Riverside businesses, spokesman Don Hooper said an education programme was needed. Most were confused about the difference between pan tax and trade waste fees and most did not have the time to read complex documents, he said. “They need more training and they need concise information.”

People turning up to say farewell to Dunedin’s historic Captain Cook Tavern tonight are being warned to stay out of trouble or risk “ruining it for everyone else” and causing the pub to close early. The student watering hole is set to close its doors tonight and with no-one stepping in to take over the lease it could remain closed for good. The owners of Cook Brothers Bars, which runs the historic pub, have been working with police and the Dunedin City Council to make sure everything runs smoothly tonight, but are prepared to close the pub early - as they did on Saturday - if things look like getting out of hand. “We are only prepared to operate [tonight] if everyone’s under control. “Certainly, everybody arriving at once will probably lead to a similar scenario to last week, because you can’t go from running a pub that had very few people coming through to suddenly one where half the city visits,” owner Richard McLeod said. If people turned up and “played the fool” they risked “ruining it for everyone else” and forcing the owners to close the pub early, he said. “The encouragement would be just to expect that you can have a couple of beers, but just do it over the course of the day, as opposed to everyone arriving at once,” he said. Acting Inspector Mel Aitken said Dunedin police were prepared for the last night at the Cook. “Dunedin police are aware that tomorrow night is the Captain Cook Tavern’s last business night and are staffed accordingly.”

Jobs are on the line at Westport’s Cape Foulwind Cement Works. Holcim (New Zealand) told staff yesterday it was about to begin a review of the works’ staffing structure. “With the current business challenges we’re all facing, we’re reviewing our staffing structure at the plant and quarry over the next six weeks or so,” Holcim general manager, cement, Ross Pickworth, told The Westport News. “We expect to have a plan together at the end of July and we’ll be consulting with staff on our plans after that.” Holcim was in a challenging market and had to look at cutting its costs, he said. He confirmed job cuts were a possibility, but could not say how many might go. “It’s a time of uncertainty for staff and I really would prefer to avoid speculating on what the outcome may be,” he said. “But we do need to operate the business as effectively as we can within the current environment.” The works employs about 110 in the plant and quarry and about 10 drivers.  - APNZ

Aggressive, opportunist and cheeky. Those are three words aptly used to describe Experience Mid Canterbury’s latest online marketing campaign. Targeted at Australian skiers, the electronic campaign through Facebook shows a web cam picture of Thredbo in New South Wales, alongside a picture of a snowcovered Mt Hutt. They were snaps in time, both taken at the skifields as they geared up for their opening dates, and showed that Thredbo was threadbare when it came to snow. Experience Mid Canterbury general manager Nigel Birt agreed it was aggressive marketing, and opportunist. “It’s cheeky, but why would you not,” he said. The campaign was run for 12 hours late last week, and featured on the news feeds of Facebook members, who have an interest in skiing, in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. It was viewed by 12,600 people in less than one day, and cost Experience Mid Canterbury just $44. “Everything you do on-line you can track, you can see what results you are getting instantly,” Mr Birt said.

A growing population means Ashburton needs to keep a close eye on its accommodation options for older people, says mayor Angus McKay. At yesterday’s meeting of the Ashburton District Council’s finance and community services committee he suggested that the long waiting lists for units in its elderly person’s housing units indicated the council should be looking at increasing its housing stocks. “It was a special housing corporation loan that got us into this so should we take this up with the powers that be to see if we can get more homes built in this town,” he said. While waiting lists appeared to be long, council property manager John Rooney said not everyone on that list would meet the council’s qualifying criteria. This includes thresholds for assets, income and cash.

tomorrow, with an impressive upper mountain base of 70 centimetres and lower mountain base of 50 centimetres. Meanwhile, Experience Mid Canterbury data for the district’s accommodation guest nights show a drop of 12.54 per cent for April compared to the same month last year. This is believed to be due to Easter having fallen in April last year. Mr Birt said discussions with accommodators had shown generally similar guest numbers to last year for April, “or just a hint down”.

Housing for the elderly By Sue Newman

The campaign will run again in a week or two’s time. “You can get quite a bit of leverage out of reminding people that Mt Hutt is open,” Mr Birt said. “If we feel it’s worked, and if those same conditions are there, it’s good keeping it fresh in people’s minds that New Zealand is open for skiing, we have good snow, book your holiday now, and kids ski for free.” Thredbo web cams late yesterday showed the ski area was open, but with very little snow, reflecting a slow start to the ski season in Australia.

Today’s online poll question


The funding that was available when the council entered the elderly housing business had been pulled and the council needed to be careful if it went looking for Government assistance to build more units, Mr Rooney said. “We need to be careful where we head with this. We went into negotiations with Housing New Zealand a few years ago to access a fund for elderly housing but as quid pro quo they wanted all social housing in the district to come under one umbrella that we’d administer and share the costs with them.” The council’s view then was that if Housing New Zealand stock in the district was up to the same standards as the council’s housing stock the council might be interested but it wouldn’t want to pick up housing stock that needed a lot of work to come up to standard, he said. “I’m not saying there’s no room for negotiation, we just need to be aware of the pitfalls,” Mr Rooney said. by David Fletcher

ON WHAT’S Drive to stamp out teen bullying

Some tips for the weekend

By Myles Hume Online attacks and a worrying culture of brawling among teenage girls will be part of a focus to crack down on bullying in Mid Canterbury. Safer Ashburton District is set to roll out a community action programme to address bullying in the Ashburton District, looking to provide resources and support the work of schools in dealing with the harmful behaviour. The local organisation recently finished a two-month scoping

document funded by the Ministry of Social Development looking at bullying in the Ashburton District, surveying 176 people aged eight to 20. Safer Ashburton youth consultant co-ordinator Sophie Jones headed the first investigations of its kind in Mid Canterbury, and quizzed local youngsters about what forms of bullying were present, why people were bullied, how bad it was and what could be done about it. “Some of the trends we found was that social media was a common place for bullying, with lots of people spreading

rumours, talking about people publically with or without their knowledge,” Ms Jones said., a social media site that encourages users to write anonymous comments, was also of high concern, with some people “putting themselves out there” in a dangerous manner. “Physical bullying is still a big one, and there’s been an increase in young women brawling, that’s something that’s been identified recently,” Ms Jones said. The year nine year-group also emerged as one of the worst for bullying, as they tried to estab-

lish their place in the school, Ms Jones said. She said the next step was to spend the next 10 months looking to reduce bullying and how to deal with it, with the input of an advisory board made up of local youth who would report to the co-ordinator of the programme, yet to be appointed. “I think it’s important to see what’s happening locally and actually talk to young people. A lot of the time decisions and resources are made by adults and that doesn’t always work,” Ms Jones said. Although it was too early to say

what projects would be put in place for the bullying reduction programme, teens had already put ideas forward. A Facebook resource booklet or smart phone app educating users on privacy settings and appropriate use, a pop up “asking people if they really want to post something” online, as well as a mentoring programme with appropriate training, were all ideas of local youth. Safer Ashburton District general manager Kevin Clifford said they would look to support schools in dealing with bullying. “No, it doesn’t mean schools

aren’t coping at all, in the school environment schools have their programmes, but teens spend most of their time out of the school environment, it’s just getting that consistent messaging across.” Ashburton College principal Grant McMillan said he was supportive of the programme, and praised the community organisation for tackling the issue head on. “The more the community lines up alongside teachers and parents the better, because it means we are working on this together,” he said.

Hepatitis A vaccinations pass 100 More than 100 people have been vaccinated against hepatitis A after an outbreak in Ashburton. Dr Ramon Pink, Canterbury Medical Officer of Health, said yesterday’s clinic was held after a child from a kindergarten was diagnosed with the illness. The preschooler belongs to an Ashburton family with four confirmed cases. A fifth person, with close links to the family, has also been confirmed as having the illness. Vaccinations were provided to every child who attends the kindergarten, relatives at risk, and staff. Friends who have been in contact with the family were also offered the vaccine. Early symptoms of hepatitis A infection can be mistaken for the flu, and some people, especially children, may have no symptoms at all. It can result in a mild illness lasting a few weeks, or a severe illness lasting several months, with symptoms including fever, jaundice, anorexia, nausea, abdominal discomfort, malaise, and dark urine. “Hepatitis A is transmitted by not washing your hands properly after using the toilet, which makes hand washing key to preventing the spread of viruses and other bugs,” Dr Pink said. “Preschools can be a high risk environment for the spread of hepatitis A, particularly where there is nappy changing. “It’s so important that people wash and dry their hands thoroughly, particularly after toileting, and before and after eating or preparing food. It only takes a minute but can make a huge difference to your health.” It is the second vaccination clinic in Ashburton in as many months - 60 people were vaccinated after another outbreak in May. In April more than 150 people associated with a preschool in Linwood, Christchurch, were provided with the vaccination.  - APNZ

Museum helps Shortly after hosting a successful “Canterbury Quakes” touring exhibition, the Otago Museum is donating $10,000 to help with the restoration and storage of earthquake-damaged heritage artefacts in Canterbury. The funding will help support the work of the Canterbury Cultural Collections Recovery Centre, which has been established in a new extension building at the Air Force Museum in Wigram, Christchurch. The building is being used temporarily to provide secure premises for Canterbury heritage artefacts, some of international significance.  - APNZ

Foreign students earn credits in English By Myles Hume An encouraging number of students who have English as a second language are showing interest in a ground-breaking course soon to start at Aoraki Polytechnic. The polytechnic’s Timaru campus will be the first education provider in the country where students can study towards what will be six nationally recognised English qualifications, starting next month. Acting chief executive Alex Cabrera said they initially intended to start the course in May, but decided it would fit

better starting in the second semester, coinciding with the beginning of other courses. He said there had been significant interest in the course, which will set a precedent for schools and other language education providers around the country. “We are encouraged by the enquiries we have received for the new English qualifications, particularly from migrant workers,” he said. Aoraki Polytechnic English language programme co-ordinator Craig Courtis has worked for two years to set up the New Zealand Certificate in Language at the polytechnic.

In April, he said there were about 300 different qualifications available to English language students in New Zealand, which made it difficult for students and employers to compare the effectiveness of the programmes. However, across the country, that would soon be cut back to Mr Courtis’ six New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) recognised qualifications. Aoraki Polytechnic’s Timaru campus will be the first to implement the standards, which would be available to Ashburtonions who could catch the polytechnic’s daily bus to Timaru. The qualifications would be avail-

able to both international students and those living in New Zealand as residents or who recently moved to the country, for whom English is not their first language. Because they are also NZQA standard it means domestic students have access to student loans and allowances, something that was not available in the past. Mr Courtis was also asked to by NZQA to work with other institutions across the country as a “consistency assessor”, meaning he will assess moderating materials and programmes to ensure it is the same across the board.

Where do our kids learn to be bullies? T

he subject of bullying has raised its ugly head again on our pages this week. It is disturbing to learn that the incidence of both in terms of social media and physical attacks is a rising trend in Mid Canterbury – but we are part of a worldwide trend. In New Zealand and across the globe children have taken their lives as a result of such victimisation. It is only a matter of time before such a tragedy happens on our own doorstep.

OUR VIEW While their teenage antagonists may feel vindicated in leading these missions, and may not understand the longterm implications of their actions – most of them will eventually become parents. How will they explain their actions to their children? Will they front up and admit to hounding another human being to death?

Even those who survive are usually irreversibly scarred by the experience. Thankfully I escaped bullying at school, but then the schoolage Nelson whanau numbered at least 20 in my high school days; and we were clannish enough to protect each other – pick on one of us and you had the rest of us to deal with.

The consequence was usually a long, hard day in the sheep yards ear tagging ewe hoggets, grubbing thistles or slashing gorse.

YOUR VIEW Hakatere We have just read, with some concern, a comment made in the Guardian (June 11) regarding the relocation of Hakatere baches. “Provision was made for land to be made available for the relocation of the six huts on the water front if further erosion made their positions dangerous.” This is a quote by a publication (Hakatere – The First 100 Years, which was prepared by a local historian with help from past and present members of the Hakatere Hutholders Society and representatives from the previous owners of the land, the Acclimatisation Society. There is absolutely no doubt it was intended that should erosion on the sea frontage put the baches in any danger there would be land designated in the camp for the replacement or rebuild according to the wishes of the affected occupants.

And I’m sure if he found out any one of us had bullied kids at school the outcome would have been the same – because he valued the rights of all; a fair and equal barney was okay – but bullying was not. Do parents and grandparents do that today? I recognise times have changed – but where are these kids learning this behaviour? Bigotry is learnt in homes – next time you comment on the

Considering we live in one of the most PC countries in the world and have a lot of sad sack whingers living here it really came as no surprise a security firm turned up to our daughter’s, and her friend’s combined 16th birthday party on Saturday night,

to serve an excessive noise direction! Yes, it was an outside party in a tent and yes, the music was loud - but 11.15pm on a Saturday, give me a break! And get a life! Could understand if it was 3am or 4am and a regular occurrence but a one-off party and before midnight, pretty sad to complain. Close neighbours were advised of the party and finishing time. While I’m aware it is the base beat that annoys people and does travel at night, we had 11 adults supervising, and those taking a break from gate duty and supervising were inside chatting and watching sport quite comfortably. So to whoever complained (if you were a neighbour I hadn`t advised) instead of wasting council and security staff time you could have rung our house, I’m really pretty easy to get on with, and then you would have been informed the party was to finish at 1am and I would have kept volume down.  Sorry if you missed a couple of hours sleep one night of your life!

Fraudster seeks early release Convicted $17 million fraudster Michael Swann was told at a parole hearing yesterday “there was light at the end of the tunnel”. The comment came from panel convener Judge David Saunders at the end of a New Zealand Parole Board hearing held at a Christchurch prison. “Thank you very much,” Swann, who was flanked by a Department of Corrections guard and his lawyer Tony Ellis, told the board at the hearing’s conclusion. Swann, who defrauded the Otago District Health Board of $16,902,000, looks set to be released on parole to work for a health company, on the proviso his accommodation is found suitable. The board asked for Swann’s proposed release address be approved by the Department of

Corrections, with the hearing adjourned until next month. Earlier, the board heard from a supporter of Swann that his engineering/biotech company, which makes products for health issues such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, could use his skills. “I am really looking forward to working with him,” the Christchurch businessman said. That same supporter was confirmed as the man who penned an earlier letter to a previous board threatening legal action if Swann was not given a favourable outcome. While that letter led to a delay in Swann’s parole hearing, Judge Saunders confirmed “none of us have read the letter”. Swann, dressed in a brown fisherman knit jersey, blue

jeans and black shoes, appeared nervous throughout the hearing, speaking only when spoken to and focusing his attention on the panel seated across from him. The panel noted his previous offending, his obligations to the community, the difficulties he would have in repaying society, but also noted “you have to get on with your life”. Mr Ellis said that the Christchurch-based job offer was “an opportunity for my client to put something back into the community”. Swann was sentenced in the High Court at Dunedin in March 2009 to nine and a-half years jail with a minimum nonparole period of four years and six months, after being found guilty of defrauding the health board. The parole board noted that

his job offer complemented the engineering work “you have been doing in person” at the prison. However, the board was concerned the offer for accommodation also came from his prospective employer. The board noted it preferred a different arrangement and inquired about an offer from another Christchurch-based support person, who was not present at the hearing. Swann replied the support person was not present because of the presence of the media, but confirmed his offer, and gave the phone number of his supporter to the board. “You must have rung it a few times,” Judge Saunders noted. Swann also confirmed he would be loaned a vehicle, or a bicycle, to travel to work.  - APNZ

New Zealand soldiers serving in Afghanistan during the biggest battle for kiwi troops since Vietnam have been praised by an inquiry into the incident, despite two troops being injured in friendly fire. In an unprecedented move, the Defence Force yesterday released a video showing footage of the firefight and New Zealand troops being shot at by Afghan insurgents. The Court of Inquiry also considered a separate attack on troops nearly two weeks later, after which a live grenade and ammunition were sent home with the remains of a New Zealand soldier. The Army condemned the incident and said it was “unacceptable”. The inquiry released its findings into incidents on August 4 and August 19 last year, in which five New Zealand soldiers died in attacks by Afghan insurgents. Six soldiers were injured during the first incident at Baghak, with two most likely hit by friendly fire, the inquiry found. It said friendly fire incidents were understandable but not inevitable against the “fog of war” backdrop. “It must be noted that the response and actions of those involved on the day, under such intense insurgent fire, nonetheless overall demonstrated the finest qualities of soldiering.” The inquiry said it was an “intense and particularly chaotic” firefight. Lance Corporals Pralli Durrer and Rory Malone were killed by insurgent bullets during that incident when the Provisional Reconstruction Team (PRT) went to the aid of ambushed Afghan colleagues.

Earlier, the families of the two soldiers were shown the footage of the firefight. Jack Durrer, the grandfather of Lance Corporal Durrer, said the footage, taken by a camera attached to the helmet of one of the troops, helped them understand what happened that day. “Once we saw those pictures, and all the firing that was done, and the noise, it was something that brought it all to life for us.” The video shows clearly the harsh terrain the soldiers were fighting in and the advantage the insurgents had over the allies by positioning themselves high on rocky cliffs and shooting down to the Afghan National Directorate of Security (NDS) and the PRT. Defence Minister Jonathan Coleman said New Zealand soldiers being injured by friendly fire in Afghanistan was “unfortunate” but “always a risk during complex combat situations”. He commended the “courage and professionalism” of soldiers involved in the battle. The second incident considered by the inquiry was the attack on New Zealand soldiers when a humvee ran over an improvised explosive device, killing Lance Corporal Jacinda Baker, Private Richard Harris and Corporal Luke Tamatea. Chief of Army Major General Dave Gawn said all three died instantly when their vehicle was destroyed by the explosive made up of “50 pounds” of homemade explosives. The bodies were flown to Christchurch on different flights where, during a pathology examination, a live grenade and two 9mm rounds were found on one of the bodies. The injuries sustained by the soldiers were so traumatic that the fist-sized grenade was not discovered, despite uniforms being patted down.  - APNZ

Status no matter People who have a heart attack in Wellington are almost twice as likely to survive if it happens in public rather than at home, new research has found. The study, funded by the University of Otago, also found nothing to suggest the victim’s chances of being helped by a passerby depended on their socioeconomic status, contrary to the findings of studies overseas. The research, published in the New Zealand Medical Journal today, suggests more should be done to improve the response times of ambulances to homes in the capital where a person has

suffered from a cardiac arrest. The study examined 413 cardiac arrests in Wellington over three years ending on June 30, 2010. It found 19.8 per cent of people who had a cardiac arrest in public survived, compared with 10.7 per cent who had one at home. Dr Andrew Swain, medical director of Wellington Free Ambulance and one of the researchers, said he was “very pleased” with the finding that socioeconomic status did not affect the survival rate. “There are pockets of deprivation in the Wellington region ... patients in those areas are getting - APNZ an equitable service.” 

Family safe after smoke alarm sounds A mum and her 10-year-old son escaped a house fire when they leapt out of the window of their burning bedroom with their pet dog in Hastings on Wednesday. Vanessa Abraham-Smith and her son, Cullen, were sleeping when they awoke to the sound of a smoke alarm at about 4.28am, finding a room filled with smoke and flames climbing the walls. “I thought I had left the TV on because it was quite light. We were really disorientated but then I could hear the crackling and feel the heat,” she said. The Havelock North Primary School teacher had then made a mad dash for the nearest window with Cullen and dog Chaz. “We went for the window. The door had been cut off by the fire. He [Cullen] went out and then I threw him the dog and jumped after them,” she said. “I said to

him, ‘Whatever you see and whatever you hear don’t come back inside’.” She then went through the back door of the house to rescue her 12 year-old daughter and two other sons who were in a sleepout, before ringing the fire brigade with the phone she grabbed from the house on the way out. She said a pillow that had fallen on to an extension cord during the night had caused the blaze after it caught fire. “I thought I had turned my electric blanket off but in fact I had it on one,” she said. “If we had been overcome with smoke no one would have got out.” The family praised Hastings firefighters who extinguished the fire quickly resulting in most of the damage being confined to the bedroom. She said the smoke alarm had saved their lives. - HBT

Pensioners work to beat rising costs By Matthew Backhouse A staggering one in five pensioners is still working - a figure fuelled by finance company collapses, divorce and the high cost of living, experts say. Statistics NZ labour force figures show 118,100 people aged over 65 were in paid employment in the first quarter of the year, or 20 per cent of all New Zealanders over the retirement age. That’s double the rate in Britain, where almost one in 10 over-65s are still in work, and the fourth highest rate in the OECD. The numbers have been on the rise for 25 years, with the proportion of workers over 65 trebling from 6.4 per cent in 1986 to 17.1 per cent in 2006. The trend looks set to continue, with Statistics NZ projecting 30 per cent of all pensioners will be working by the mid-2020s. Malcolm Menzies, research manager for the Commission for Financial Literacy and Retirement Income, said the trend was mostly driven by universal superannuation, which is paid to all people over 65, regardless of their employment or financial status. He said there were many reasons to stay in work. “Some people need to stay on because they want to use those extra few years to build up their retirement savings. “We think that some people have lost ground through the finance company crashes, and they’re trying to make it up again. “And some people just like their jobs.”

Mr Menzies said divorce and separation could also be driver. “People who divorce in the last 10 years before retirement have significantly worse financial outcomes - that might be another reason why people carry on working.” He said many working pensioners simply stayed in the same job, because employers could be reluctant to take on older workers. Those who did find new jobs tended to get part-time work. Grey Power national president Roy Reid said the rising cost of living was behind the trend. “The costs of rates, electricity and food keep increasing. Superannuation is not keeping up with it, and for people to maintain their lifestyle, they have to find additional income.” Mr Reid said not all workers over 65 were doing it because they had to. “Some of them enjoy even parttime work because it helps keep them fit and healthy and alive. But on the other hand, there are lot of people who, because of heavy manual work all their lives, are incapable of work.” Mr Reid called for superannuation payments to keep up with living costs. Alpha Recruitment managing director Colin Mathieson said about half his over-65 temping clients were still working because they had to, including several who were divorced, separated or widowed. But others simply enjoyed it. Mr Mathieson said one woman had wanted to be a nurse when she was younger, but never got the chance. She was now temping as a ward clerk at a hospital. - APNZ

String trio strike chord

String trio Tres Cordes perform at the Sinclair Centre at an Ashburton Musical Club event on Sunday, as part of their first national tour. Members Cathy Irons, Vyvyan Yendoll and Tomas Hurnik played violin, viola and cello to an appreciative audience. Tres Cordes string trio has been performing together since 2007, and are all members of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. The trio has a passion for chamber music which they have shared with audiences around South Island. They have also broadcast live on CTV and had their music, including their first CD String Trio Sapphires, feature on Plains FM and Radio New Zealand Concert. Members of the group have performed as part of a string quartet in Tokyo at the New Zealand Embassy. Member Cathy Irons said she and her two fellow Tres Cordes members planned to continue playing with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, and were also hoping to explore more opportunities to play as a trio. “I enjoy the intimacy of playing with a small group of people. The orchestra is a big show of power and incredible sound – a bit like a party. When just the three of us play it’s more like a conversation,” she said.

Labour MPs in corporate box Labour has confirmed four of its MPs were hosted in SkyCity’s corporate box at Eden Park for the All Blacks versus France test last weekend. Phil Goff, Annette King, Kris Faafoi and Clayton Cosgrove accepted SkyCity’s invitation. Their leader David Shearer declined, but turned up for 10 minutes anyway. Prime Minister John Key said the Labour MPs had displayed “deep hypocrisy” after accusing the Government of being too close to SkyCity over the casino company’s plans to build a $400 million convention centre in Auckland in return for concessions on gambling laws. “These guys have been running around parading as if they’re holier than thou, telling everybody how terrible SkyCity is and how the sky was going to cave in because a convention centre was being built and the moment we turn our back they are taking their sausage rolls and free

• Farmer fined A farmer has been fined $2800 for ill-treating a dairy cow with cancer at his Waikato farm. Anthony John Hall was sentenced in the Morrinsville District Court on Wednesday after earlier pleading to guilty to one charge laid by the Ministry for Primary Industries under the Animal Welfare Act. He was also ordered to pay court costs of $132.89. The cow had an advanced case of bovine ocular squamous cell carcinoma, commonly known as “cancer eye”. It should have received veterinary treatment well before the advanced stages of the condition and had suffered unreasonable and unnecessary pain and distress as a result, - APNZ MPI said. 

beers in their box watching the All Blacks play,” he said yesterday. “I think they have been caught out, I think they are very embarrassed by the fact that they have been deeply hypocritical and I think New Zealanders will judge them very badly for this.” Mr Key said if Labour was true to what it was saying, the MPs wouldn’t support SkyCity in any way. “They have got to have a consistent position. If Greenpeace had a box at an All Blacks game, I wouldn’t be attending.” Mr Key believed “without a doubt” that Labour would take a donation from SkyCity at the next election. Justice Minister Judith Collins said she would be very happy to be invited to the SkyCity box. “But then, I’m not a hypocrite like (Labour). I think they’re a bunch of hypocrites and actually they should stop slagging off SkyCity and being very happy to take their hospitality.

• Man shoots screen A Central Hawkes Bay man pointed a loaded shotgun at his partner’s eight-year-old son to get him off the computer before firing a round into the screen, a court has heard. Geoffrey John Buckley, 35, went on trial yesterday in Napier District Court facing three charges of reckless use of a firearm. The Crown alleges that Buckley, 35, pointed the loaded gun at his partner’s son to try to stop him using the computer. He then fired a round into the screen. The boy was eight at the time. The two other charges relate to incidents in which he allegedly fired a rifle which narrowly missed his partner’s head and shot his partner in the leg - APNZ with an airgun. 

Milford tunnel no threat to heritage bid Support staff praised for hard work

Allenton School support staff were recognised for their hard work as part of a nationwide day of appreciation on Wednesday.

Construction of the Milford Dart tunnel is not a deal breaker for the area’s World Heritage status with Unesco, Conservation Minister Nick Smith said yesterday. Correspondence between the Department of Conservation and Unesco’s World Heritage Centre, obtained by Glenorchy’s Stop the Tunnel group, shows the international body has been monitoring the tunnel proposal and the Fiordland Link monorail proposal. Dr Smith told the Otago Daily Times yesterday the World Heritage factor was only one of a number of considerations and “the most important is actually the National Parks Act”. “The Stop the Tunnel group would be mistaken in assuming that the World Heritage status is a deal

breaker over the tunnel in that the far larger tunnel associated with the Meridian power station was installed ... without any effect on the World Heritage status,” he said. In October 2012, Unesco recommended an environmental impact assessment which considered the site’s outstanding universal values to be done before the proposal proceeded any further. Doc media adviser Reuben Williams confirmed a draft environmental report was sent in February “indicating we were going to carry out more projects” or impact studies against “World Heritage criteria”. Dr Smith insisted “there’s been a thorough environmental impact assessment done of the project” and since October 2012 many reports had been done.  - APNZ

By Myles Hume To say the least, Annmarie McCloy’s job has been somewhat challenging during the past 10 months. As Allenton School’s executive officer, she has joined fellow colleague Daphne Hinton and principal Graham Smith, trawling through dozens of Novopay errors that even continued to cause headaches yesterday. But as she dealt with the latest round of errors, it was time for people like Mrs McCloy and

The Post Primary Teachers Association has filed a class action against Acting Secretary for Education Peter Hughes over the Novopay fiasco at the High Court in Wellington. The union signalled in February that it would take legal action on behalf of many of its 18,000 members who had been unpaid or underpaid as a result of the flawed payroll system. The action is against Mr Hughes because the union argues he has failed in his statu-

ARIES (Mar 21st Apr 20th) Venus remains in a tense square with Uranus but the opposition to Pluto, which has been testing this week, is lessening. This aspect could see you battling with a need to have security on one hand with a desire to have more freedom on the other. This is a classic ‘the grass is greener on the other side of the fence’ scenario.

TAURUS (Apr 21st May 21st) You might find yourself doing something out of character. At the bottom of this could be a craving for excitement and a dislike of always having a tight repetitive structure in your life. This could be true of your romantic situation too. For Taurus people there is comfort in these things, just at present they could seem less attractive.


GEMINI (May 22nd Jun 21st) Uranus is the key player in the heavens today. In one alliance with Mars, it could see some exciting possibilities open up for you, perhaps out of the blue, and possibly plans for the weekend. You might thrive on excitement and newness. Yet Venus is affected less positively and one hope may have some extra expense linked to it.

• Woman starves dog

“Some teacher aides work with children who have high needs and a lot of them don’t have job security, if that child moves away tomorrow then their job may go because each child is funded by the ministry,” Mrs Leverton said. Mrs McCloy said Novopay errors seemed to be easing, but it had been “challenging”. “It’s been very time-consuming and stressful at times but it’s slowly getting better, there are less technical glitches and it’s easier to get through to them now.”

A woman whose unfed dog became was so frail its bones were “clearly visible” has been banned from owning dogs for five years. South Auckland woman Robin Olive pleaded guilty in Manukau District Court to illtreatment of a dog in her care and was sentenced to 100 hours of community work and disqualified from owning a dog, the SPCA said. The SPCA was tipped off in December that a white female whippet bull terrier cross named Lady was tied up at Olive’s home in Takanini. The dog weighed only 12.5kg and a vet concluded the dog’s condition was the result of “inadequate feeding for many days, if not weeks”, the - APNZ SPCA said.

President Angela Roberts said it was a union’s core business to fight for members’ pay. “Security of pay for people who work in schools is seen as so important it is protected by three laws - the Wages Protection Act and the Education Act and the Employment Relations Act.”

She said the main relief sought was a statutory declaration, but sources said a claim for monetary remedies would be part of the case. The High Court proceedings are in addition to the individual cases taken on behalf of members.

Better care is campaign’s focus A new patient safety scheme will encourage healthcare workers to learn from their mistakes, rather than cover them up, says Associate Health Minister and Rangitata MP Jo Goodhew. The Open for Better Care campaign focuses on four areas where patient harm can be reduced in the healthcare sector, including falls, surgery, healthcare associated infections and medication safety. Mrs Goodhew said there was a certain level of harm that occurs within the health sector, high-

The school’s special educational needs coordinator Gaye Leverton organised the small gathering. “The support staff play a vital role in our school and we couldn’t function without them, no person is more important than anyone else in the school.” She said support staff often “bore the brunt” of Novopay pay woes due to their fluctuating hours, and often received average pay with little job security.

her fellow support staff members to take a break from what can sometimes be the forgotten work that makes schools tick. The school held a morning tea as part of a nationwide day to appreciate the role of support staff on Tuesday, including teacher aides, the caretaker, librarian and two office staff that make up almost half of Allenton’s 36-strong staffing roster. Mrs McCloy was also gifted a ‘Novopay Survival Pack’ full of goodies in appreciation for the mountains of pay blunders she

lighted by recent abuse cases in the North Island, and the campaign was about reducing that harm. “It’s about providing the public of New Zealand with the comfort that they will have a health system they can rely on,” she said. Healthcare workers had showed a “real commitment” to improving patient safety and care, she said. “I’ve been impressed with the absolute willingness of healthcare professionals to help.” “The industry is seizing on any opportunity to participate in programmes that make a difference,” Mrs Goodhew said.

Mrs Goodhew was also encouraged by the support shown for the campaign by local health authorities, including the Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB). Stella Ward, Canterbury and West Coast DHB’s Executive Director of Allied Health, commended the Open for Better Care campaign and said it was committed to the goal of zero patient harm. “It will help raise awareness of the main causes of patient harm and I am confident that the initiatives that arise from it will help reduce harm to the people in our area,” she said. Mrs Ward said the CDHB had

LEO (Jul 24th - Aug 23rd) Friends who are bold, irreverent and unafraid of going against the norm can be like a breath of fresh air for you at this time. Yet if you are someone who tends to stick to what you know and is more cautious in your approach, this may challenge you too. There can also be surprises around the romantic sphere. Don’t take a partner for granted.

VIRGO (Aug 24th Sep 23rd) You may be in the mood to go off the well-trodden path and be a lot more daring, especially around professional or financial interests. Mars can give you greater drive and purposefulness, and if you can tap into this in its angle with Uranus, it’s all to go for. A friend, however, can prove changeable or fickle today.

LIBRA (Sep 24th Oct 23rd) You and a friend may hatch a plan to get away from it all this weekend. If you are lucky enough to be in a lively love relationship it could prove great fun to do something completely spontaneous together. This may see you head off to a beauty spot, the coast, or if you can afford it, for a weekend away or even jet off overseas.

Rosebank Resthome and Hospital manager Sue Prowse said it already operated under open disclosure policies but was supportive of any programme that promotes open dialogue and improves patients care. “It’s important to be transparent about it,” she said. The Open for Better Care campaign will run until mid-2015.

The Southland District Council is preparing to soften the impact of electricity price hikes on Stewart Island after outrage from residents, businesspeople and holiday home owners. Consumers on the island’s tiny diesel-generator electricity network were facing an 84 per cent increase in monthly connection fees, from $52.74 to $96.98, coupled with reduction of 5c per unit in usage charges. Many took exception to the hike in connection fees; 29 individuals or families wrote to the council last month saying it was too much, especially for the elderly and young families. One said annual electricity costs at his holiday - APNZ house would double.

A primary teacher will have to sell her family home to repay the nephew she cheated out of a $400,000 inheritance. Ena Croft, 48, was sentenced to 12 months supervision and ordered to repay reparations of $120,000 that she spent on herself. She had earlier pleaded guilty to charges relating to forging a will. Her brother - Jim Croft - drowned in 2008 and left more than $426,000 in life insurance to his son Chanse Tautari. But instead of the money going to Mr Tautari, Croft faked a will and, along with affadavits, filed them in court.  - APNZ

US snooping foiled ‘dozens’ of attacks Secret US surveillance has thwarted dozens of potential attacks, the head of the National Security Agency says as he defends his agency after leaks revealed hidden programs. “It’s classified, but it’s dozens of terrorist events that these have helped prevent,” NSA chief General Keith Alexander told MPs as he was questioned on the

importance of internet and phone surveillance efforts. Following an uproar over the disclosure about NSA-led programs to monitor internet and phone data, Alexander said: “I want this debate out there. “I think what we are doing to protect Americans is the right thing,” he said. “Our agency takes great pride

in protecting our nation and civil liberties ... this is what our nation expects our government to do.” Alexander said the attacks foiled included “dozens for both here and abroad, in disrupting or contributing to the disruption of terrorist attacks”. Appearing at a congressional hearing, Alexander said his agency was working to provide more

data to politicians and the public. “I want the American people to know that we’re being transparent in here,” he said. He maintained that the agency needs “reasonable articulable suspicion” before it gets a warrant to look more closely at data. Alexander said that when the NSA seeks specific phone data, “that it is auditable by the (con-


gressional) committees, by the courts, by the administration.” Asked whether NSA could determine what people are looking for on the search engine Google, he said: “Yes we could. You could get a court order ... to do any kind of search in this area, you would need a court order.” Alexander said part of the mission of the NSA and the Cyber

A 540-year-old copy of Virgil’s Opera has been sold for more about $NZ2 million at auction. Printed on vellum with hand-painted decorations, Christie’s said the second edition of the work was produced in 1470 – less than a year after printing began in Venice. The last copy was sold in 1920, which Christie’s said indicates its rarity. Margaret Ford, from the auction house, said: “The newly discovered Virgil has joined the exclusive club of books sold for over £1 – PA million.

Nelson Mandela is responding better to treatment on his fifth day in hospital, South African President Jacob Zuma has told parliament. “I am happy to report that Madiba is responding better to treatment from this morning,” Zuma told a scheduled budget hearing yesterday, using the antiapartheid icon’s clan name. “We are very happy with the progress that he is now making, following a difficult last few days.” Mandela, 94, was admitted to hospital at the weekend for a recurring lung infection and has since been described only as being in a “serious but stable” condition. His apparent failure to respond to days of intensive treatment had prompted widespread concerns about his condition. Zuma, speaking 49 years after Mandela was sentenced to life in prison, paid tribute to his predecessor and the others who were imprisoned that day as heroes of South African democracy. “Because of their sacrifices and the foundation that was laid for a free and democratic South Africa, our country is a much better place to live in now than it was before 1994, even though we still have so much work to do.” Zuma also thanked people around the world for their prayers. “We appreciate the messages of support from all over the world. It is an honour for us as South Africans to share Madiba with the international community.” “We are so proud to call him our own.”  – AFP

Are birdsong apps harming birds? Mobile phones have become an unexpected threat to birds because apps mimicking their song divert them from the business of nesting. Dorset Wildlife Trust in southern England is launching an online campaign to raise awareness after several incidents on the Brownsea Island nature reserve in Poole Harbour. Visitors to the nature reserve

have used apps imitating the unusual “churring” call of the nightjar to attract the birds so they can be photographed more easily. The trust is advising photographers not to use bird apps on all of its 42 reserves and signs have been put up on Brownsea Island to remind visitors. The nightjar is rare but enjoys a refuge on Brownsea Island

“We think that after this gesture of goodwill people will decide to go home.” A campaign to save Gezi Park’s trees from being razed to make way for a replica of Ottoman-era military barracks was met with a heavy-handed police response on May 31.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan says he will consider holding a referendum on plans to redevelop an Istanbul park that have sparked nationwide protests, in his first major concession in nearly two weeks of anti-government unrest. The gesture came as thousands gathered in the city’s Taksim Square yesterday, next to Gezi Park, for a 13th evening of demonstrations. The mood was subdued and peaceful, in stark contrast to the previous night when protesters fought running battles with riot police. “We might put it to a referendum ... In democracies only the will of the people counts,” said Huseyin Celik, a spokesman for Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) after talks between Erdogan and protest leaders.

Syria chopper Aussie abruptly ends Cuba to Florida swim raid gets Lebanon warning Lebanon’s army has warned it will hit back against any new attacks from Syria after a helicopter gunship struck an eastern town, ratcheting up tensions amid US-British talks on the conflict. In Washington DC, Secretary of State John Kerry and his British counterpart William Hague met a day after US President Barack Obama asked his security team to “look at all options” to help the Syrian opposition. A Syrian helicopter gunship fired two rockets at the centre of Arsal, a Lebanese town populated mostly by Sunni Muslims, wounding one person, Lebanon’s army said. In a rare warning against Syrian President Bashar alAssad’s regime, it said Lebanese troops “took the necessary defensive measures to respond immediately to any similar violations”. Hague told a joint news conference that Britain and its allies must be “prepared to do more” to save lives in Syria, calling the conflict “the most urgent crisis anywhere in the world today” and a grave regional threat. Kerry insisted the goal of diplomatic efforts was to reach a

political solution and transition of power that “gives the Syrian people the chance to have a new beginning where they choose their future leadership”. “We have said that we will do everything we can, that we are able to do, to help the opposition achieve that goal and to reach a point where that can be implemented, and that’s what we trying to do,” he said. Lebanon’s President Michel Sleiman called the Arsal attack “a violation of Lebanon’s sovereignty” and said Beirut has the right to take steps to defend itself. Most residents of Arsal, in the hills just 12km from the border with Syria, support the Sunniled uprising against the Assad regime. The majority of Syria’s population is Sunni but it has been ruled by more than 40 years by the Assad clan from the Alawite community, an offshoot of Shi’ite Islam. Hours after the helicopter attack, four rockets fired from Syria hit a Shi’ite-majority area of eastern Lebanon, a security official said without elaborating on casualties or damage.  – AFP

North Korea slams South for scrapped talks North Korea has blamed South Korean arrogance and deceit for the collapse of planned talks between the two rivals. And it has warned that prospects for any future dialogue have been severely damaged. The two Koreas had initially agreed to hold their first highlevel talks in six years in Seoul on this week, but they were

called off at the last minute following a dispute over protocol. The initiative had been seen as a step forward after months of soaring military tensions, but its collapse has instead resulted in a sizeable backwards stride. Even the one positive development – the restoration of an inter-government hotline – seemed in doubt, with the North

Reserve Bank governor Graeme Wheeler said he’s likely to keep the official cash rate at 2.5 per cent through 2013, repeating his view that the kiwi dollar is overvalued and that he stands ready to intervene again if needed. The central bank affirmed its expectation the key interest rate will stay on hold this year, while saying it’s prepared to hike rates if rising house prices spur another property bubble, or cut rates if the kiwi dollar continues to appreciate. “Despite having fallen over the past few weeks, the New Zealand dollar remains overvalued and continues to be a headwind for the tradables sector, restricting export earnings and encouraging demand for imports,” Wheeler said. “If we see the opportunity to undertake intervention then we will take it.” Wheeler has to steer monetary policy in a world where inflationary pressures are weak and New Zealand’s economy is a relative outperformer. Raising interest rates could re-ignite a kiwi dollar that the bank has used its own funds to weaken in recent months, though it would also take some of the steam out of a housing market driven by supply shortages in Auckland and Christchurch that threatens to stoke inflation. “As previously noted, the Reserve Bank does not want to see financial or price stability compromised by housing demand getting too far ahead of the

supply response,” Wheeler said. The New Zealand dollar fell half a US cent after the decision as traders deemed Wheeler’s comments to be less hawkish than expected. Wheeler pushed back expectations for economic growth, didn’t bring forward the track for interest rate hikes and reiterated earlier comments that the local currency is overvalued and the central bank is prepared to intervene. “They were relatively dovish overall. It’s not upbeat about the New Zealand economy,” said Sam Tuck, senior manager FX at ANZ New Zealand. “There was a perception that maybe he was going to be a little bit more focused

on housing.” The New Zealand dollar fell as low as 79.27 US cents, from 79.83 cents immediately before the 9am statement. It recently traded at 79.50 cents. The TWI fell as low as 73.78 from 74.26, and was recently at 73.93. “Monetary policy has been in a bind for some time, trapped between rising house prices and the high exchange rate,” Dominick Stephens, Westpac Banking Corp chief economist for New Zealand, said in his MPS preview. The central bank lifted its projections for the trade-weighted index by about 200 basis points over the forecast horizon, seeing it at an average 77.5 in

the June quarter of this year, falling to 73.1 by March 2016. In its March forecast, the Reserve Bank saw the TWI at 75.5 in the June quarter, falling to 71.2 in early 2016. Wheeler said annual inflation is expect to rise towards the mid-point of the central bank’s target 1 per cent to 3 per cent band, even as the currency keeps a lid on imported prices. Consumer prices rose at an annual pace of 0.9 per cent in the first three months of the year, the third quarter in a row where it’s been below the central bank’s target of between 1 per cent and 3 per cent. The central bank forecasts the annual consumer price index to return to the band in September of this year, rising above 2 per cent in June 2015, when interest rates are tipped to start increasing as domestic demand spurs inflationary pressures. The central bank expects the 90-day bank bill, often seen as a proxy for the OCR, to start rising in June next year, with a slightly steeper curve starting in 2015, before reaching 4.2 per cent in March 2016. It had previously projected the rate unchanged until June next year, before accelerating in 2015 and rising to 4 per cent in 2016. Before the announcement, traders priced in 36 basis points of increases in the coming year, according to the Overnight Index Swap curve. The Reserve Bank sees house price inflation is continuing to build, with prices up 9 per cent in the three months ended April 30 from the same period a year earlier. While that’s expected to

rise modestly through the rest of this year before abating in 2014, it’s still a key risk for the regulator. The bank’s projections assume it hasn’t used its new macro-prudential tools. Housing Minister Nick Smith yesterday said government plans to free up housing supply aims to trim “super profits” from land banking, which is making property unaffordable in Auckland. Real Estate Institute figures yesterday showed national stratified house prices have climbed 8.7 per cent in the year ended May 31, with the number of sales up 7.1 per cent from a year earlier. Wheeler said the economy is being driven by increasing consumption and the Canterbury rebuild gathering pace, and is getting further impetus from residential construction in Auckland. The bank trimmed 0.5 per cent from its forecast for gross domestic product this year as the impact of the drought comes to bare. It sees annual growth of 2.8 per cent in March 2014, accelerating to 3.3 per cent in the March 2015 year and 3.1 per cent the following year. That compares to the Treasury’s budget forecast of 2.4 per cent in 2014 before rising to 3 per cent and 2.6 per cent the following two years. New Zealand’s OCR has been on hold for a record 19 meetings since Wheeler’s predecessor, Alan Bollard, sliced half a percentage point in March 2011 as insurance against the impacts of the Canterbury earthquake that levelled the country’s second-biggest city.  – APNZ

Australian endurance swimmer Chloe McCardel ended her attempt to swim from Cuba to Florida after 11 hours in the water when she was stung by a jellyfish yesterday. It was the fifth failure involving three women swimmers who have tried to make the marathon swim since 2011. Jellyfish stings and strong currents have been the main impediments. Her support team released a statement saying that McCardel stopped her effort to become the first person to swim across the Straits of Florida nonstop without a shark cage “due to a severe debilitating jellyfish sting”. It said she had been taken on to one of her support vessels and was sailing to Key West. She would need 24 hours to recuperate, it said. Bob Olin, skipper of the primary support boat, the Sunluver, said McCardel had suffered multiple stings. “She got nailed all over her body – back, legs and arms. Nailed multiple times, all at the same time,” he said by satellite phone. He said the team tried to treat her wounds while she remained in the water, but had to take her on board a boat because she was suffering “excruciating pain.”  – AP

Hallenstein Glasson Holdings, the clothing chain, said full-year profit may drop as much as 12 percent after a slow start to winter hurt returns from its Glasson stores in Australia, where rivals have cut prices aggressively. Profit may be $18.5 to $19.5 million in the 12 months ending August 1, from $21 million a year earlier, the Auckland-based retailer said in a statement. The forecast confirms the company’s concerns at its first-half results in March, when it said record warm temperatures and intense competition had made it difficult to gain traction on winter clothing sales in the first seven weeks of the new season. “A late start to winter has meant earnings for the current winter season

will not match last year,” chief executive Graeme Popplewell said in today’s statement. “Whilst menswear business Hallenstein Brothers had continued to benefit from its repositioning in the market and from innovative marketing, Glassons has found itself operating in an environment characterised by aggressive discounting and price based promotion.” Popplewell said this was particularly evident in Australia, where larger rivals “in volume fashion womenswear have commenced winter clearance earlier than usual which is a sign trading isn’t up to expectations.” “As a result there is now considerable pressure on margin for the balance of the winter season,” he said. Shares of Hallenstein last traded at $5.35 on the NZX and have gained 35

percent in the past year. The stock is rated ‘hold’ based on the consensus of five analysts polled by Reuters, with a median price target of $5.40. The drop in profit compared to 2012 is exaggerated by a one-time insurance gain of $1.9 million in the second half of last year, the company said. The company’s Storm chain has continued to trade to expectations, it said. “Because we maintain close control over our stock levels we do not expect to close the season with excess stocks, and the balance sheet will retain its strong position,” Popplewell said. “On that basis the total dividend stream for the year can remain unchanged although that will need to be subject to close scrutiny if earnings continue – APNZ to deteriorate.” 

By Jamie Gray New Zealand’s dairy sector debt nearly tripled over the past decade to $30.5 billion in 2012 and some farmers will have difficulty servicing their loans in the year ahead, despite the prospect of a higher milk price, the Ministry for Primary Industries said. The debt is spread unevenly among farmers, with about half held by just 10 per cent of dairy farmers, the ministry said in its latest Situation and Outlook report. Given the rapid growth in dairying over the past decade, the ministry said it was not surprising that its level of debt had also increased. The dairy sector’s demand for debt financing over the past decade was due to a number of factors, one of which was

the requirement to fund a large number of capital-intensive dairy conversions. “While there is a strong correlation between the increase in debt and dairying land during the six-year period ending June 2009 – the period of strongest debt growth – the 15.5 per cent annual average growth in debt during this period was only associated with a 2 per cent increase in dairy land per annum,” the ministry said. A significant proportion of the debt accumulated during this period could be attributed to price inflation for dairy land, which averaged 12 per cent a year. Because demand for such land exceeded available supply, much of the debt was reflected in higher land prices. “This has left a significant number of dairy farmers vulnerable to a fall in the milk price or a decline in land prices,” the ministry said.  – APNZ

However the costs involved with buying and selling houses can already be substantial, so if it is just not currently in your budget to hire a professional, there are a few things you can do yourself to increase the attractiveness of your property. It’s easy to spend far too much creating an idyllic lawn and garden, but a little ingenuity and some hard work will go a long way to keeping some green in your wallet, as well as in the garden. The first thing you should do to avoid a costly mistake is to improve the quality and appearance of the soil in your garden. Nothing will grow in dry, cracked clay, so turn the soil, add some good quality compost, nutrients and some rich black soil to ensure that what you plant will actually grow. No-one likes the thought or look of weeds, so after the soil is taken care of, plan to cover it up with weed-matting and then an attractive covering such as bark, wood-chip or stones. Check your bulk landscape supplier for the best deals on a trailer load of this product. Whatever medium you choose, make sure you stick to it throughout the property for a sophisticated look, and consider utilising it in other areas, such as a path or planter boxes. Paving stones are easy to make from pour-it-yourself concrete, and can look especially attractive when set amongst river stones along a path.

For a rustic look that will add a bit of history to your landscape, consider asking for some of the rubble left from demolition sites. The shards of brick and stone can add beautiful contrast to your project, for little or no cost. Large chunks of brick or rock can be placed in gardens to fill spaces and give a natural feel to the space. If you have gaps in your garden that drastically need filling, before forking out on new plants, talk to friends and family with fantastic gardens and see if any of them are happy to give you clippings of their plants, or they may be re-planting and happy to give away a few treasures. Local council’s often give away flowers when re-planting the public gardens, so give them a call and keep an eye out in the newspaper for when this will next be happening. The grass is always greener on the other side. Essentially this is what a new home owner is looking for, a better lifestyle. And what better way to accentuate how fresh and attractive your home is than with lush green grass. Fertilize and treat the grass so that you have a nice green lawn, and buy lawn seed to fill out any thin spots to make the overall yard look more appealing. With a gorgeous blooming garden, lush green grass and interesting contrasts through carefully placed rocks and timber, a few weekend improvements can create a lasting first impression on your prospective buyer.

Who determines the price?


2 years






any vendors tell their agent to discourage purchasers who say the price of their property is “too high” from carrying out an inspection.

2 years

This makes sense, they think, as letting purchasers whose price range is a bit lower inspect the property is just asking to the price down. Is this true?


It is very common for vendors to price their property to include room for negotiation. But on top of this, it is equally common for many vendors to be unrealistic in their expectation of the price their property will achieve. If purchasers who see the property at the asking price consistently give feedback that their price is too high for what the property consists of, vendors would do well to take note, to the extent of encouraging purchasers in a lower price range to inspect and give their opinion as to ‘value for money’.

guided by market forces. Vendors who insist on an arbitrarily set figure often have the opposite effect from what they intended. Firstly if agents think a vendors expectations are more than the market will bear, there is a risk that they will think it is not worth putting too much effort into the sale, because the vendor will never accept the offers they are likely to get.

Secondly, if the figure the vendor has in mind is not the true ‘market value’, the property is unlikely to sell at that price. By telling the agent to discourage purchasers who are not prepared to “go that high”, the vendor risks missing out on a sale, in amongst the purchasers that are turned away may be one who, in the heat of negotiations, would have paid the most. Just as vendors sometimes come down further than they initially intend to in order to sell their property, so many purchasers The ‘price-it-high-and-see-what-youactually extend themselves more than their get’ approach may work in a rising market first stated price range in order to secure where there are a lot of buyers competing a property they really love. Most vendors for every property, but the more the market will be using the proceeds of one sale to slows down, the more important it is to be fund another, so a lesser price on the sale

of their original property in a low market will be echoed by an equally ‘good buy’ for themselves when they make their own next purchase.

Mark Allred

It would be a delightful world if vendors could simply refuse to sell until the price the want for their property is reached, in the real world, this often works in a hot or rising market, but almost never in a cooling market, unless the property is unique and highly sort after.

Property Consultant Professionals Methven

‘Market forces are a bit like the weather - they go in cycles and it’s no good wishing for summer prices when the winter snow is thick on the ground. The most disappointed purchaser is usually the one who ignores the falling leaves of an autumn market and insists on summer prices. When the snow finally falls and the property is stale, such vendors often sell for less than they should have when they finally quit the property at market winter prices.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, June 14, 2013



New incentives to watch telly Just gorged on an entire series of Game of Thrones? Then you deserve a reward. Microsoft plans to give special awards to viewers in return for watching television programmes and advertisements on its new Xbox One games console. A patent application lodged by the US computer giant reveals that it wants to incentivise TV viewing by offering rewards to everyone who watches video content on its devices. The concept, an extension of the achievements Xbox 360 players can unlock by completing in-game tasks, could lead to viewers receiving free Microsoft products in return for watching TV. But the awards scheme would also require a monitoring system to track every programme and advert watched by its users and confirm that they actively engaged with rewardable content. The Microsoft patent states that TV watching tends to be a passive experience. To increase interactive viewing and encourage a user to watch one or more particular items of video content, awards and achievements may be tied to those items, the document logged with the US Patent and

Trademark Office says. Producers, distributors and advertisers of the video content may set viewing goals and award a viewer who has reached the goals. The reward could be virtual, in the form of unlocking extra points or content in a game; coupons for an advertised product or service; or an actual product. Viewers who watch an entire series could be rewarded with free downloads of a future show or a new game. What if a viewer simply leaves their device in play mode then moves away? The patent suggests that the rewards system could be made compatible with Microsoft’s Kinect sensor. The viewing behaviour could include an action performable by the viewer and detectable by one or more sensors, such as a depth camera. A sensor could detect whether a viewer’s eyes were really on the screen. The patent also mentions a system configured to track the viewing behaviour of one or more viewers that can compile one or more userspecific reports on the behaviour, and send the user-specific reports

to a remote device to determine whether the user-viewing goal has been met. Microsoft believes its patent - which it calls Awards and Achievements Across TV Ecosystem - will find favour with advertisers struggling to target viewers who can now speed through commercial breaks at high speed using digital catch-up services. However, Jeremy Toeman of Dijit Media, a start-up company that aims to transform the way people discover TV programmes, says Microsoft’s plan fails to grasp the motivation behind the viewing experience. The accomplishment of finishing Game of Thrones is that you watched it, you enjoyed it and you gave up 13 hours of your life to have that enjoyment, says Toeman. I haven’t seen any success yet from any TV rewards programme. What the industry doesn’t get is that watching the show is the reward. The patent doesn’t state which platform the rewards system would operate through, but it is believed that the new Xbox One and 360 consoles are the likeliest targets.  - The Independent

Eye-tech future It doesn’t matter that Apple tantalises with the promise of an iWatch or Apple shoes. Or that people are working on T-shirts that can hold an electric charge to power tablets and mobile phones. It doesn’t matter because the next wave of wearable tech is already here, it’s extremely cool, and it’s only going to get cooler. From Samsung Galaxy phones that measure your heart rate and Body Mass Index to Google Glass on the fashion runways of New York City, the digital devices formerly carried in pocket or purse are becoming a part of personal style.

They will also allow photos to be taken with a blink of an eye or emails to be read with physical motions or spoken word. At least one politician, Gary G. Howell of the West Virginia state house of delegates, has introduced a bill to amend laws that already limit functions such as texting while driving: no driving while wear- AAP ing Google Glass.

A not-so-jolly green giant cuts a menacing yet strangely endearing figure in Ang Lee’s respectful treatment of the time-honoured Marvel superhero. Star Eric Bana has a firm grip on Bruce Banner, the afflicted scientist whose overdose on gamma radiation causes him to turn into a brutish giant when angered. Serviced by ILM’s dazzling effects and a clever script rooted in psychological drama, Brokeback Mountain director Lee preserves the brains and brawn of the comic book, but jettisons the camp.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, June 14, 2013


Ronchi still gets the nod Those returns appear to make his selection to open at international level more of a punt. Ahead of his New Zealand oneday debut at Lord’s (Ronchi already had four ODI and three T20 caps with Australia) he admitted Adam Gilchrist, who he grew up watching at the Perth Cricket Club, was the cricketer he most sought to emulate as an opening batsman/ wicketkeeper. The problem comes with getting the combination right. No one else in the Champions Trophy tournament has done it, apart from Matthew Wade stepping into the role on Wednesday where he made 29 as a late replacement for David Warner. Kumar Sangakkara bats at No. 3 for Sri Lanka but came in second ball against New Zealand. McCullum is keeping the faith. “Ronch is disappointed he hasn’t got that one big score yet but his keeping has been outstanding. “He’s a valuable member of the team and an experienced player,” the skipper said. “His role at the top of the order is to get us away to a quick start. “Sometimes when you’re playing high risk cricket you get out cheaply. “We’re confident Luke will come good shortly. When he does he’s going to tear a team apart. “We’re confident he’s got a big part to play in the coming games.” McCullum is right about Ronchi’s wicketkeeping. He has taken seven catches, made a stumping, assisted with run outs

By Andrew Alderson New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum has endorsed Luke Ronchi as the country’s one-day opener and wicketkeeper despite three failures and two starts with the bat across the England series and Champions Trophy. Ronchi has struggled with balls on or just outside off stump. He has been dismissed in that area in four of his five innings. He has scored 45 runs at an average of nine for New Zealand over the last fortnight, the bulk of which came in 22 off 17 balls in the loss to England at Nottingham. Video analysis homework enables teams to pinpoint areas of weakness. Ronchi’s mandate to get cracking in limited overs has made him vulnerable and will continue to do so with the prospect of facing James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Steven Finn again in Cardiff on Sunday. Ronchi’s licence to play freely at the top of the order could be transferred to No 6 or No 7 where he could be of value in the last 10 overs. The decision for Ronchi to open is curious because it seems to have little statistical logic. In first-class matches last season he scored 807 runs at 62.07 in the Wellington middle order. In T20s he also batted further down. In the Ford Trophy one-dayers he opened four times for scores of 0, 16, 76 and one. He also made 36 coming in at No 3 during the second over of another match.

• Big game for seniors The Mid Canterbury seniors host FC Twenty11 in an important clash in Mainland Football division one tomorrow. The division one ladder is congested with three teams on top with 16 points and the next four teams only within five with Mid Canterbury in seventh. A win keeps them on pace but a loss could see them fall behind. In division four Mid Canterbury Eastern are away to Universities B and Methven International are also away to Selwyn in division five while the top-of-the-table Mid Canterbury Masters host their nearest rivals Western. The Youth XI are away to Cashmere Technical 18A in 18th grade division one. Then on Sunday the Mid Canterbury women host Amberley as they look to continue their strong season that has the second in division two.

and conceded one bye in 244.1 overs of ODIs in England. The simple solution could be to switch Ronchi and James Franklin. Franklin is a player with experience facing the new white ball in England’s domestic competitions. Coach Mike Hesson has already indicated Franklin is the squad’s back-up opener, and potentially forms a disruptive left-hand/righthand combination with Martin Guptill. Evidence from 2010 might swing the decision in Franklin’s favour. He had an excellent return opening or batting at first-drop for Gloucestershire. In the 40-over competition, he averaged 73 - making a couple of hundreds and fifties with a strike rate of 92. In the T20 matches, he averaged 39.16 but stepped the strike rate up to 130. A highlight was 90 from 50 balls against Sussex Similarly for Essex last season, he faced the new ball in the majority of his 10 T20 innings. He averaged 27.55 with a top score of 78 and a strike rate of 111. Former coach John Wright flirted with the idea of Franklin opening in limited overs, but he’s only done it twice at international level, both last year in T20s when he made 60 from 37 balls against Zimbabwe and 35 from 36 against Bangladesh.  - APNZ Right: Luke Ronchi - Has the confidence of Black Caps’ skipper Brendon McCullum.

• Tour heads for hills The 2013 Tour de Suisse met the halfway point yesterday with Ashburton cyclist Hayden Roulston and the rest of the peloton heading for the mountains. Roulston came in with the lead bunch in 67th in yesterday’s 176.4km stage 5 from Buochs to Leuggern where Alexander Kristoff [Katusha] took his chance in the sprint to win. There was no change on the top of the GC with Mathias Frank (BMC) still leading by 23 seconds to Roman Kreuziger (Saxo-Tinkoff). Radioshack Leopard top rider is Maxime Monfort 3 minutes off the leader in 20th, with Andy Schleck 67th and Roulston 71st, 22:29 behind. Overnight the sixth stage got them part way to the mountains with a 186.1km stage before stage 7 takes them to the high mountains near La Punt tonight.

• Going cross country Four runners from Mid Canterbury will contest the National Secondary School Cross Country Championships at the Halswell Quarry in Christchurch. Ashburton College will be represented by Emma Waite and Cameron Jopson with Mt Hutt College having Assina Dalglish and Aimee Elliott both attending.

Japan outscored Wales 2-1 over the line. Broadhurst skinned them off the openside, a constant threat at the breakdown, and with Tanaka's snipe around the fringes they'll take it close again if they can keep the set pieces limited. For all that they faded under their own heat and you'd suspect first up was their chance, now 0-5 hosting Wales, two of those in Tokyo. Wales got home via Biggar's boot and that should have at least blown the inexperienced nerves, but a second tier squad makes them a risk to sting Japan by a big number.

They've mercurial players one through 23 but need to roll a 1-7 record in Christchurch to send it to a decider. A second quarter burst set the All Blacks for a 10 point victory in Auckland where if anything a fellow called Barnes (the ref) assisted the scrum. They need a step up from the pack not the least Read and Cane with A Smith, B Smit, Nonu and Ranger their best last out.

Italy are a shocker on the travel, regularly down a few gears south of the equator, but this is neutral turf for both and they're a chance to slow it down and rumble straight through the middle. Samoa looked the seasoned pro against Scotland and they'll try to storm right through Italy via Tuilagi, Leiua, and Williams all 100kg plus and quick. They'd need to find parity in front first, the Italians usually able to put the skids on most in the tight. If they're prepared to build into they might run it to the bank later and improve a 3-1 record all grounds.

Without 21 regulars the Pumas were cooked pre off hosting England unable to halt the pack runners and leaking big out wide. They're 3-5 all time hosting, the ratio actually worse in Buenos Aires, and their chance probably lies with the visitor expecting a casual stroll. Despite the Lions tour England put miles more experience on the ground in Salta. The scrum set it sapping the Argie strength and Burns dash out of 10 is a new bonus. They should improve on a 3-0 record since '09 taking to the South American heat.

Hosting rugby nations ranked between eight and 12 the Quad series is set up for the Boks. Even if they blood a few debs, whoever arrives will play the same blueprint; a bruising tight five, loosies that flatten any fringe runners, and a halves pairing that go safety first. It might not work in August but it'll do just fine here and at 4-1 since '06 and 5-0 all time hosting, a gap less than 20 would surprise.

The Cowboys are off the front that at least laid a platform for JT recent seasons, only T Sims making 100 last out. It wouldn't surprise to see them find form here but the numbers say no. Perhaps Stanley took it to the line a little more positively than Soward may have when the Dragons visited Newcastle and standout moments from Dugan got them the points. You wouldn't count on it week to week. They're two losses straight to the Boys including the last here but if the defence holds they might have enough.

Visiting a Boys side which had few ideas how to protect a lead, the Bulldogs eventually got the idea themselves that free points were on offer and the likes of Hodkinson, Reynolds, and Barba ensured they were banked. Even T Williams may have realised you've got to go and find it, albeit he'd be a risk in this environ. Manly are in something of a rut after dropping their bundle in Auckland and they'd need to put everything away here. If B Stewart laces up it might spark them to improve a 4-2 record since 2011 including the reverse earlier this year.

After winning matches they had no right to Penrith dropped one they should have done in a canter hosting the depleted Tigers. They lack the zip out wide to mask the shortcomings in front and with their youth exposed on the high beam last out, their hope is the hot and cold form of the host. The Raiders went almost error free to make the break 24-0 hosting the Broncos and with Campese up to pace they might impose on Penrith inexperience. Still, they're 1-2 with the visitor in Canberra since '09 and you'd be forgiven for chucking all your coins up.

The Eels 14 point loss hosting the Roosters didn't reflect the effort, in fact if they weren't so dim at the stoppages they might have carried it. With coach Stuart's reported axings will come the 'rebuild' word or in another parlance, 'coach get out of jail free card'. Although Fifita matched his Origin form, Lewis didn't and without Gallen the Sharks bigs got rolled by Storm. You'd expect those two to step up here (the latter no doubt keen to forget the embarrassingly farcical attempt to show Origin as a scrap), and its four years since the Eels succeeded at 09/03/13 Shark Park.

The Titans would need a season best but the bye came ideally for their big grunters off Origin and in Zillman, Sezer (deadly in front), Srama, and Kelly (probably the sharpest in the league off the mark right now) they've a developing spine that brings zip and spirit. Compound the attention span improvements in Idris and Taylor, and you wouldn't be surprised to see them drop a major side anytime soon. Whether that's here will depend on how they put the shuts on Burgess bros and Inglis, notwithstanding Souths hasn't allowed more than 14 their last six. The Knights runners are an ordinary look on the back foot and are missing Gidley in those situations. They're able to pull a rabbit but their big outings have generally come hosting bottom half sides. Storm looked as sharp as they've been for a while last week. Cronk had the Sharks in disarray off the boot and they'll test the Knights fliers similarly at the corners. They're not quite as easy to follow lately, but are five straight in this, the last four here by an average of 21, and its '04 since the Knights got swabbed in Melbourne. After knocking off Manly at home the Warriors are three straight and 5-8. The big four prop rotation will be charged with evening up the Roosters in front here allowing a leg up for Johnson to bring Hurrell and Vatuvei into play. Its an ask and at 1-5 the road you'd want to see more yet. The Roosters probably established their creds too easy visiting the Eels via big territory out of the first half sets and it made them want it without earning it. Still at 5-2 hosting and 3-1 over the Warriors since 2011, 2-0 at the SFS that period, they should be good for this.

Wests arrived at Penrith down over ten first graders including the skip Farah, lost strike winger Koroibete mid match, but proved desire (and Woods, 202 and 46 tackles) will carry you a long way to go two straight. It'll come unstuck against the top teams but fortunately for them Brisbane isn't one of those right now. There's a ring of uncertainty about them, neither planned nor effective going to the zone, Dodds try in garbage time visiting the Raiders masking on the board a complete lack of threat. They're five losses the last six well off the form that has them 09/03/13 7-1 in this since '07.

Clash of the netball titans By Jonathan Leask With three wins each from the opening three rounds United A and Celtic A go head-to-head in a top-of-the table clash in senior A netball tomorrow. Celtic have swept aside Methven A and the two College sides, while United A has taken care of Rakaia A and the two Hampstead sides. United are building on a strong finish to their 2012 season where they were a dark horse on their way to being beaten semi-finalists. They have picked up where they left off, but face their biggest test yet in tomorrow’s fourth round.

Celtic’s unbeaten streak stretches back through the three weeks of grading and are yet to taste defeat post the 2012 premier final, but they will be wary of the threat that United pose. As well as the blockbuster the other three matches are also important stepping stones for sides looking to finish in the top six at the end of the Senior A round robin to then feature in the premier grade. College A open the round against Rakaia A with one win each so far after both accounting for Hampstead B. College A will be the favourites for this one, and they will be looking for a complete four-quarter perfor-

mance after they faded following a strong start against Methven A last week. The other two potential top four sides then meet with Hampstead A up against Methven A. The defending premiers have recorded back-to-back wins following the opening round loss to Celtic, while Hampstead A bounced back from a 11-21 loss to United A to convincingly beat Rakaia A 41-19 and get back on track for the key clash. Following the two unbeaten sides squaring off, the round concludes with a battle of the B teams as the winless College B and Hampstead B look for their first victory.

Full house on the turf By Jonathan Leask The Ashburton hockey turf has a busy afternoon in store with all four senior teams at home in the Mid-South Canterbury competition tomorrow. The Hampstead women start things off chasing a fourth win of the season against Timaru Girls’, having already accounted for Timaru Girls twice. Wakanui Black then takes the

turf looking cement top spot and continue their unbeaten season against Cambridge. Black are coming off a double header win weekend but will be wary of Cambridge after they scraped home with a 1-0 earlier this season. Tinwald are hoping to tighten up on defence when they clash with Northern Hearts after they were well beaten 10-4 loss to Black last weekend. Tinwald had been struggling

to find the back of the net but manufactured four goals, having only had eight from their previous eight games, but this week will look to start keeping sides from finding the back of their net with such regularity having conceded 58 in nine games, of which one was a win by default. Wakanui Blue play the last game taking on Excelsior and will be after another bonus point win to keep pace with Hearts and Black at the top-of-the-table.

Winning run continues A flawless third set has seen Marina Erakovic advance into the third round of the AEGON Classic in Birmingham following victory over world number 22 Ekaterina Makarova yesterday. The world number 71 took the opening set in a tie break before Makarova, the tournament second seed, bounced back to force the match into a deciding third set. Erakovic then took control to win 7-6 (6), 3-6, 6-0 in a little under two hours to reach the third round at the $US220,000 grass court event. Erakovic was up and down on her serve with 13 double faults, while recording eight aces, however she was able to convert six out of nine break points on Makarova’s serve. “She definitely is tricky and she plays well on all surfaces so this was really a very good win for me. I managed to stay aggressive and I kept going after my shots and it paid off,” Erakovic said. Erakovic will face 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone for a spot in the quarter-finals. She yesterday advanced to the doubles quarter-finals with Cara Black following a straight sets victory over Lisa Raymond and Laura Robson. - HOL

• Lawson skips South Two Ashburton bowlers have been selected to play for the South Island against the North Island in the annual interisland match for the Kevin Eddy Memorial Trophy in Rotorua on August 17. This year the South Island squad will be touring the North Island culminating with the 33rd North versus South clash with the teams were announced at the National Indoor Bowls Championships yesterday morning. Michael Lawson has been named to skip the South Island men’s triples that includes fellow Ashburton bowler Mathew Bassett and his pairs partner Stephen Preddy, (South Otago). A third Ashburton bowler will be on the tour but Martin Nordqvist won’t be rolling up as manager. Meanwhile at the nationals Rosemary Bennett, Russell Ellis and Lawson will all be in the action today as members of one of the 99 triples that qualified for post section play. The nationals wrap up with the post section play in the fours tomorrow.

• Black Sticks injured Black Sticks Shea McAleese and Stacey Michelsen have been ruled out of their respective World League semi-finals in Rotterdam due to injury. McAleese will travel home early next week after breaking his big toe in the men’s final training session before their opening game against Netherlands this morning. McAleese has been ruled out of hockey for six weeks, and his spot in the team of 18 will be filled by Capital striker Jacob - APNZ Smith. 

• Mixed messages Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy says the NRL judiciary is sending out mixed messages about players fighting. Roosters back-rower Boyd Cordner walked free this week despite launching a flurry of punches at Parramatta’s Matt Ryan. This came a week after NSW State of Origin skipper Paul Gallen was banned for one week for his brutal combination landed on Queensland’s Nate Myles. “I think it looks like there is some mixed messages there and hopefully, in the future, everything will be a lot clearer and we’ll see what’s allowable and what’s not,” said Bellamy. - AAP

• Rain a worry for Scott

Marina Erakovic: Knocked out the tournament second seed yesterday.

Adam Scott’s quest to win back-to-back golf major championships could be stalled by the weather, with a severe thunderstorm threatening to interrupt the opening round of the US Open. Heavy rain and wind is forecast going into the first round, which could prevent players from completing their rounds today. Scott is paired with Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, and is vying to be the first Australian to win back-to-back majors.- AAP


ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, June 14, 2013


1st XV on right track By Jonathan Leask History beckons for the Ashburton College 1st XV. The college has a chance to crack the top eight of the Crusader Secondary School rugby competition for the first time tomorrow, but standing in their way is Lincoln High School. Lincoln were a bogey team for College since they re-entered the competition in 2010 but last year they broke the hoodoo with an emphatic 34-10 away from home. “They had been a bit of a bogey team but we put them away last year and will be aiming to do the same again,” college coach Shane Enright said. College currently sit fifth in the Northern-Southern section where Marlborough Boys’ on top on 27 points with Nelson on 21, and still have to play Nayland in a deferred match, the only two teams guaranteed a top four finish. Roncalli are on 18 and head to Blenheim to meet Waimea, and Timaru Boys’ are one point ahead of College on 16 and head to Nelson to meet Nelson Boys’. For College to make an unprecedented trip to the top eight they need a bonus point win over Lincoln, and their fate lies in Nelson maintaining an unbeaten run. That part of the equation is out of their hands, with the main focus for College picking up five points tomorrow. “We have a chance but it’s all in our own hands.

“We have to get that win and then score four tries as well. It will be a big ask but we can do it. “We’ve really come long in the last three weeks and grown as a team rather than as individuals, and if we can play as a team we’ll be competitive for the 70 minutes.” The side has played well in patches this season with Enright saying the odd “bad decision” has cost them, getting caught playing in their own half too often, but they have worked hard to address that. “That’s been worked on to make sure we are making the right decision inside our own 22 and hopefully that’s cemented in and will carry on [tomorrow].” Enright took on the head coach role of the 1st XV in 2011 and set a five year plan, with year three to crack the top eight and be the top co-ed school, and reiterated those goals at the start of the season. Tomorrow they can tick one of those goals off if it all goes to plan. “Three years ago I said it would take three years to crack the top eight, and here we are with a good chance to do it. “As for goal two to push to be the top co-ed school, Roncalli are ahead of us and will probably make it but we just have to make sure Roncalli don’t get too far ahead of us on points as they carry through in the second round.” They still have to tick off goal one, and are hoping to get a good crowd in for the midday kick-off at the Allenton rugby grounds as they try to make history.

Rakaia facing finals specialists By Jonathan Leask Rakaia are one win away from the Combined Country Cup rugby final, but have to beat the most experienced of finalists tomorrow to get there. Rakaia make their first appearance in the semi-finals hosting Lincoln, a side abound with finals experience. “Lincoln are the specialists at finals time,” Rakaia coach Wayne Foxcroft said. “We might not have as much but with the experience we do have we can keep focused on what’s just another day at the office and we need to do the job.” Since the Combined Country Cup expansion to include North Canterbury in 2007 Lincoln has been a semi-finalist every year, winning the title twice. They were the inaugural winners beating Leeston 14-6 before being runner-up to Glenmark twice. A third straight loss to Glenmark in the 2010 semi-finals was then followed by a second title in 2011, beating Methven in the final, before another grand final defeat last year,

this time at the hands of Southbridge. Rakaia only re-joined the senior ranks in 2008, and their only prior combined finals experience before this season was a 35-0 drubbing by Darfield in the 2011 quarterfinals, where they went on to win the Watters Cup. “I’ve been involved in plenty of finals but that’s not the case for a majority of our players, and sometimes the occasion can get to a player. “A final is all about the top four inches and turning up ready to play and If we can’t get motivated for this one then we won’t make the final and don’t deserve too. “They have a big opportunity.” That “opportunity” is to be the first Mid Canterbury side to finish on top of the 19- team wider Canterbury competition, with Lincoln playing the spoiler twice to Methven in the last two years. Rakaia has only dropped the one match all this season, a 17-10 loss to Southbridge, on their way to finishing on top of section one, and they produced a convincing performance in last weekend

quarter-finals to beat Waihora 28-8. “We just want to carry on where we left off last week against Waihora - who beat Lincoln this season. “If we can keep that form and even step up another level we’ll be a good chance.” Lincoln dropped two of their final three round robin fixtures but know how to get the job done in a final atmosphere, showing that with an empathic 40-17 quarter-final win over Oxford. “Lincoln have always been forward orientated. Smash-bang around the fringes until it’s on out wide but I have heard they might have changed their game plan a bit. “It won’t worry us. “We’ll just play what’s in front of us and worry about getting our game plan right.” In the other semi-final the defending champions Southbridge meet the surprise package Saracens, who upset the previously unbeaten Ashley last weekend. Southbridge will head in as the favourites but have been well off their best in their last two outings following a 75-11 demolition of West Melton, while when the sides met

in pool play on May 4 Southbridge only scraped home 27-20. The other 17 sides have consolation matches and there is only form ahead of the local competitions to play for. Coming off their hard fought quarter-final loss to Southbridge, Celtic have to pick themselves up for a long haul to Ashley in the fifth-eighth playoffs. Celtic went close to claiming an upset over Southbridge, ultimately falling 16-29, while Ashley was on the end of a shock 19-27 loss to Saracens, their first loss of the season but knocking them out of cup contention. Celtic and Ashley already clashed this season with Ashley getting up for a 13-3 win on May 18. Methven also have a rematch in the trophy section coming up against the Burnham side that beat them 37-17 in round three, while Glenmark host Darfield. In the plate Hampstead host Dunsandel-Irwell and Southern are at home to Kaiapoi.

Warburton ready to step up By Darren Walton Underdone and under pressure, British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton is desperate to seize the moment and end all arguments with a dominant display against the NSW Waratahs on Saturday. Lions coach Warren Gatland yesterday named his strongest team of the tour for the Allianz Stadium encounter and all eyes will be on the skipper and openside flanker as he looks to shore up a starting spot for Saturday week’s first Test against the Wallabies. After missing the tour-opener against the Barbarians and then the Western Force match with a knee injury, Warburton returned against the Queensland Reds but has thus

far been outshone by fellow flankers Sean O’Brien, Justin Tipuric and Dan Lydiate. Calls are growing louder in both hemispheres for Gatland to overlook his Welsh favourite and reward form players, as he has promised since leaving Britain last month. With Gatland selecting the vast majority of players expected to be in his first Test line-up, Warburton still has the inside running but must deliver against the Waratahs. “There’s still a lot to prove,” the tour captain said yesterday. “There’s still a couple of games to go (before the Test team is picked) and players will definitely try and take this opportunity on Saturday.” Gatland readily acknowledges he can’t squeeze eight back-rowers into three against the Wallabies

Warner-Root scuffle becomes a big deal By Andrew Alderson The David Warner-Joe Root skirmish has provided a peach of a story for a hungry British sports press machine to chomp into ahead of the Ashes. A relatively tame Antipodean Champions Trophy encounter between Australia and New Zealand turned into a fascinating observational opportunity as each juicy, salacious detail was savoured. Scribes sat hunched in clandestine corners with phones wedged between shoulder and ear as pens frantically scrawled information from no doubt impeccably-placed sources. It was the perfect storm required for the Ashes 2013 build-up. Not only was an Australian player swinging his fist on the booze; he’d also delivered the blow on an English player currently enjoying a press honeymoon on the back of prodigious form. The incident has been a catalyst towards building nationalist fervour in defending the series’ terracotta urn.Ashes anticipation was whipped into a further frenzy. Predictably, The Sun led the way on the headline front with “Ashes to Bashes” before getting the word “PUNCHING” in capital letters into their intro; a reference to the alleged glancing blow landed by Warner on Root’s chin in Birmingham’s Walkabout pub at 2am following England’s Champions Trophy victory at Edgbaston last weekend. Fellow tabloid, The Daily Mirror pushed for “EXCLUSIVE” status (again in capitals) with their angle

“England star Joe Root attacked by Australia batsman David Warner in bar fight over WIG”. The story went on to say: “Warner grabbed a fake hairpiece Root was wearing on a night out, before striking the Yorkshireman across the face in front of stunned onlookers.” According to their sources the punch took on more impact, “sending him flying backwards”. The Twittersphere was full of gags relating to Warner’s recent poor form along the lines of trying to punch Root but still only getting a nick. The Telegraph dug further into the yarn, alleging Root had been wearing the green and gold wig in a manner deemed to be impersonating South African Muslim cricketer Hashim Amla. The broadsheet added more background, stating: “The England players were enjoying their first night off since May 12 and it is understood there had been no interaction between the two groups until the flare-up. Warner was pulled away by team-mate Clint McKay and the small group of England players there, including Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes, immediately left.” Warner last month came under fire for a Twitter tirade directed at two cricket journalists after a story about corruption and fixing in the Indian Premier League was illustrated with a picture of him. After posting a tweet laden with expletives aimed at journalist Robert Craddock, Warner took issue with Craddock’s News Limited colleague Malcolm Conn in abusive tweets that sparked an exchange. He was fined A$5,750. - HOS

• Mowen a Wallaby? Uncapped Brumbies captain Ben Mowen and the reactivated Hugh McMeniman are battling for the contentious No.6 jersey in the Wallabies pack after Dave Dennis was sent back to the NSW Waratahs yesterday. Dennis, who played in 14 of Australia’s 15 Tests last year, will front up against the British and Irish Lions on Saturday night after an Australian Rugby Union (ARU) policy backflip but now looks out of the race to start in the first Test. Despite the ARU originally controversially ruling the Wallabies’ initial 25-man squad would be quarantined from playing Lions tour games, the NSW skipper and teammate Rob Horne have been released to line up for the Waratahs at Allianz Stadium. Although the Wallabies say Dennis and Horne remain in Test selection contention, the signs aren’t positive for the Waratah duo. - AAP

• Inglis supports Taylor Greg Inglis has urged Dave Taylor to realise his immense talent and power his way back into the Queensland State of Origin side. Inglis will come up against his mercurial former South Sydney teammate in Cairns on Sunday for the first time since he joined the Gold Coast. The giant back-rower has shown signs in recent weeks that he’s edging back to his best form having been stood down by the Titans in April for breaching team rules. Inglis played alongside Taylor in the opening two games of last year’s Origin series before the 24-year-old was axed by coach Mal Meninga after an errorriddled display in the game two - AAP defeat in Sydney.

• Week-long V8 party V8 Supercars is hoping a week-long festival celebration can secure the future of the Gold Coast 600 event. October’s race on the streets of Surfers Paradise could well be the last with reports the Queensland government is set to cut its $6m funding. The event began in 1991 as part of the IndyCar world series and drew hundreds of thousands of visitors at its peak in early-2000s. But since the last IndyCar race in 2008, and a disastrous no-show by the A1 GP series, the event has failed to regain those heights as a stand-alone V8 Supercars round. With the event injecting up to $45m into the Gold Coast economy, V8 Supercars chief operating officer Shane Howard is hoping a carnival-style atmosphere can secure a new deal to keep it alive. “We want to make this year’s event the biggest party ever,” he said. - AAP

• Day won’t be psyched Jason Day has admitted he psyched himself out of his golden chance to win the Masters and vows to heed the lesson should he contend at the US Open on Sunday. Day headed to the 16th tee at Augusta National with a two-stroke lead after three consecutive birdies and looked set to be the hero of a nation, a role now reserved for champion Adam Scott, before he bogeyed the 16th and 17th to finish third. - AAP

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, June 14, 2013




Rust ‘won’t be tolerated’ Steve Hansen’s loyalty is one of the qualities which makes his players like him so much. But the former policeman has another side too, and his bad cop routine is likely to be reprised if he doesn’t get the required improvement from the All Blacks against France in Christchurch on Saturday. The 23-13 victory over the French at Eden Park was a typical first-up performance from the All Blacks. It was a bit rusty, but the French played their part too. Hansen said as much afterwards but added he wanted improvements, and has given his starting XV the chance to make amends. There are strings attached. One of the best examples of his ruthlessness was his treatment of Julian Savea last year. The then 21-year-old made his test debut against Ireland in the first test at Eden Park, scored a hat-trick and hardly put a foot wrong. A week later, in the cold of a midwinter’s night in Christchurch which forced supporters to scrape ice off their car windscreens afterwards, he struggled a bit. He wasn’t as sure under the high ball as the Irish switched to a more pragmatic game plan and almost notched their first victory over the All Blacks as a result. It wasn’t a convincing performance but the play didn’t go his way and, besides, the conditions weren’t conducive to his running game. The consequence? He was dropped for the third test in Hamilton, with Hosea Gear getting

bruiser, currently a bench player, will remain for the Rugby Championship and is adding to the pressure already on Dagg. “Rene knows what his role is and obviously he would like to start and To see more or at some stage he probably will,” purchase photos Hansen said. “But it’s all about the team first and individuals second.“ At the moment for the team his role is to come off the bench and to do that really well.” As Hansen illustrated last year, those roles can quickly change. Meanwhile the All Blacks may be forced into a late reshuffle of their starting XV after Brodie Retallick limped off the training paddock late yesterday afternoon with a damaged hamstring. The seriousness of the injury is not yet known and the 22-year-old is likely to be given maximum time to come right given the paucity of experienced locks in the side. If Retallick is ruled out, Hurricanes player Jeremy Thrush will be promoted from the bench to make his test debut. The bigger problem will be with replacing Thrush as Luke Romano and Romano are the only fit locks in the squad. All Blacks coach Steve Hansen confirmed earlier in the day that Sam Whitelock is on track to be fit for next week after breaking his finger while playing for the Crusaders. It’s possible he could be risked but a more likely option is Steven Luatua coming on to the bench. Loose forward Luatua, in the All Blacks environment for the first time, has extensive experience at lock photo joseph johnson despite having played all this season at blindside for the Blues. - APNZ Rene Ranger may be heading to Montpellier, but is still a vital part of the All Blacks machine.

a chance which he took well, claiming the No11 jersey for the next two Rugby Championship tests against Australia. Who could be in line for the same treatment a year later? Once again Israel Dagg is in the spotlight. Yesterday, Hansen defended Dagg’s performance against the French in Auckland and he was right to because the 25-year-old didn’t have a bad game, but the spark of the last few years is missing. “I think Izzy is playing as well as last year minus those magic touches and it doesn’t matter who you are, you can’t be magic all the time. “What we want from Israel is his core job done well and he’s done that,” Hansen said, adding that Dagg was one of the best fullbacks in the world at taking the high ball. “The magic bits will come when the moment for him to be able to do that is available and the French didn’t give him any. “If you do your research you would say ‘right, when he catches it we need to knock him over’ and that’s what they did.” The problem for Dagg is that Ben Smith isn’t bad at taking the high ball either, and the in-form Highlander must surely go close to claiming the No15 jersey next week even if Dagg performs his core roles on Saturday. With Smith and Rene Ranger in such compelling form it’s time for a bit more than that. While the All Blacks coach acknowledged Ranger was likely to take up his contract with Montpellier this year - reports have suggested it will cost him 300,000 euros to break his deal with the French club - the Blues

Whincup set to sizzle in Darwin heat Left: Jamie Whincup is chasing more points towards his fifth V8 Supercars series crown when the circus heads to Darwin this weekend.

his chase for a fifth series crown when the 28-driver field battle the Hidden Valley circuit and the Top End winter. Temperatures of around 33C are forecast for the four practice sessions today before sitting around 31C over Saturday and Sunday. While Whincup handled the searing heat best in the V8 Supercars’ United States debut in Austin last month, his team is still concerned about tyre management in Darwin. “Tyre wear is key and the people who are on top of that benefit most,” said Red Bull Racing team principal Adrian Burgess.

“We’ve got a much better understanding now of both tyre compounds and hopefully that bears fruit again in the Darwin round.” The racing teams can only use hard tyres on Saturday in the 60/60 format - a 120km race split into two halves and the second kickstarted with a double file rolling restart after a 15-minute break. In Sunday’s two 100km, 35-lap races hard and soft tyres must be used. Whincup, who warned of tyres effectively melting in the searing Darwin sun, has taken the chequered flag in races over three of

the last four years at the 2.9km track. But veteran Russell Ingall is the driver who is on the verge of an impressive milestone in car racing. The 49-year-old will start his 225th Australian Touring Car/V8 Supercars event in the Northern Territory, drawing him level with John Bowe for the record of most career starts. Ingall won the inaugural V8 Supercars event at Hidden Valley back in 1998, and Bowe will be on hand as he’s competing in the Touring Car Masters category in his Ford Mustang.  - AAP

Melting tyres are one of Jamie Whincup’s few concerns as he looks to further apply the blowtorch to his V8 Supercars rivals in Darwin this weekend. After a relatively slow start to the season, the 30-year-old is feeling more at ease in his Holden Commodore VF and won three of the four races at the last round in Texas. Whincup now has the chance to extend his championship lead in
