By Sue Newman The days of discussing Ashburton’s art gallery and museum behind closed doors are over, says district councillor Ken Cutforth. On the agenda for yesterday’s Ashburton District Council meeting was an in-committee item on the Ashburton Art Gallery and Heritage Centre. Mr Cutforth was quick to request the item move on to the open agenda.
“I see it says commercial sensitivity. I don’t see it is commercially sensitive, it’s more politically sensitive. I see no reason to have this discussed in-committee.” Councillor Stuart Wilson was quick to offer his support saying public discussion of the project was long overdue. “The public’s perception of the way we handled the art gallery museum project was unfortunate. Now is our chance to take ratepayers along with us.
“If we go into committee to have this discussion on funding there will be innuendoes that we’re doing something under-handed, and we’re not,” he said. That meant art gallery representatives Anne Carr and Bernard Davidson had to make a pitch for the money needed to cover fixtures and fittings for the new complex to the public gallery. Mrs Carr said her committee was fed up with being questioned and challenged about what was needed
in the new gallery and with having to make to make compromises. “Council suggested we jot down our wish-list. It was $605,000 and we’ve revised that over two years to $467,000. The gallery has had to compromise on its wish-list and it saddens me that our quite young curators are constantly being questioned by people who have no idea what they do,” she said. “We’re adamant that what’s on our revised list is not extravagant or not needed on day one.”
Mr Davidson took a swipe at the designwork of the gallery saying some of the costings gallery staff had been required to provide to the council had been because of inadequate architectural design planning. To hammer out what was actually needed, the council decided to establish a funding committee to oversee the funding and acquisition of furniture and fixtures for the complex. Council property manager John
Cast keep up gruelling audition schedule By Susan Sandys “Tickly throats” have plagued a couple of the Miss Saigon cast members as they gear up for the show’s opening night in one week. But more serious bugs have kept well away, despite the gruelling rehearsal schedule cast members are on. Director David Williams said he was pleased his cast and crew had kept healthy. “Flu hasn’t hit us, no-one has broken a leg. One or two of the cast have had tickly throats and that’s it.” Good food and plenty of sleep were priorities with members having been given dietary notes on what to eat at rehearsals. Fast food was discouraged, as was going to the pub after rehearsals. “We used to go to the pub after rehearsals many years ago, but we sort of discourage that now because they are better home in bed than boozing all night,” Mr Williams said. There are 30 adults and 18 children in the show, and rehearsals have been 6pm to 10pm on weeknights. There will be a full day on Sunday before another week of big nights before the show opens on Friday. Keeping healthy has been a priority for lead actors Matt van den Yssel, 22, and Jas Andrada, 17, who play Chris and Kim. Jas is a busy Year 13 pupil at Ashburton College, while Matt works full-time at Smith and Church. They each have big days before going to rehearsals, and usually go to bed at midnight, with it taking some time
to “wind down” afterwards. “You are doing such emotional scenes, it’s hard to sort of just relax,” Matt said. It is more important than for most cast members that the pair stay healthy, as if one of them catches something the other would be likely to get it as well. This is because the pair have to kiss each other several times throughout each show. They are both enjoying their roles and have gotten over the initial awkwardness they encountered after first meeting and having to lock lips at audition call-backs. Most of their on-stage passionate moments are unscripted, and are instead simply part of their brief to show intimacy towards each other. Matt and Jas both have partners which have been with them since before the start of rehearsals, and they said they were not worried about the close relationship the pair had to show. “There’s no actual feelings behind it, I’m not Matt kissing Jas, I’m Chris kissing Kim,” Matt said. Jas admitted it had been awkward to start with, but she was now enjoying throwing herself into her role. “It’s more we do it because that’s how the characters feel,” she said. Meanwhile, ticket sales for Miss Saigon are going well, and have almost sold out for opening night. The show is the highest budget show, at $147,000, the Variety Theatre of Ashburton has ever done. It will stage at the Ashburton Trust Event Centre to May 31, and include a Sunday matinee.
Rooney said the gallery couldn’t expect to open with all spaces occupied and all furniture in place on day one. “It’s built with a functional life of 30 years and it would be a disaster if from day one we filled every space in the building.” When it came to common space such as staff rooms and reception, that had always been intended, Mr Rooney said. “We need to see this in everything we do in terms of maximising the
efficiency of an operation. There will always be compromise in buildings where there are multi functions.” The total cost estimate for fixtures, fittings and exhibition display space is $990,000. About $670,000 of this has already been confirmed, leaving about $300,000 to be secured. The council’s funding committee will be chaired by councillor Don McLeod and will include councillors Jac Sparks, John Leadley and Alan Totty.
Christchurch to get extra $2b to rebuild By Isaac Davison The Government has allocated $900 million of new money from the asset sales programme as part of the $2 billion increase in funding for the rebuild of quake-damaged Christchurch. Christchurch Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee confirmed the Budget would increase funding for the city’s recovery from $13b to $15b. “This Government has recognised the substantial financial support Christchurch needs, not just to get back on its feet, but to position itself on the world stage as a great, small city where people want to live, visit and invest,” Mr
HOW IT’S SPLIT Christchurch recovery - $900m for hospitals, universities, justice and emergency services - $303m for Christchurch central city - $200m for land zoning, CERA costs, education initiatives - $642 for health and education projects
Brownlee said. This $2b increase over five years included $642m of funding from existing balance sheets. The total cost of the rebuild was revised earlier this year from $30b to $40b. The new funding included $924m from the Future Investment Fund, which held the earnings from the Government’s asset sales programme. The money from the partial float would go towards the redevelopment of Christchurch and Burwood hospitals, and would also help fund tertiary institutions in the city and the justice and emergency service precinct. The Government has set aside $300m for the central city, which Mr Brownlee said would help redevelop Christchurch into a world class city. “Plans are well under way for how the city will look in the years to come. This funding is about enabling that to happen.” Of the $15.2b the Crown has contributed to the rebuild, $7.6b has come from the Earthquake Commission and other Crown entities. Direct Government support has paid for the remainder. The total cost of the rebuild was equivalent to 20 per cent of New Zealand’s GDP. - APNZ English stays on track, P5
Ready to make snow By Susan Sandys

Mt Hutt Ski Area is gunning towards being the first ski area in New Zealand to go on-line with snow-making this winter. Manager James McKenzie said yesterday that snowmaking staff were ready and raring to go, they just needed temperatures to drop. This was expected to happen on Monday. Temperatures needed to be from between zero to minus four degrees, depending on humidity. “We might get on-line on Monday night,” Mr McKenzie said. And unlike most Mid Cantabrians who will be hoping for the mercury to rise after a cold evening, Mt Hutt snowmaking staff will want conditions to stay chilly. “We love it when it gets cold, our
snowmakers are all primed up and ready to go, the prospect of maybe being the first ski area to go online in New Zealand is good,” Mr McKenzie said. Monday’s cold temperatures were expected to come with snow showers on the mountain, which could bring about five centimetres to the ski area’s current 30 centimetre base. And when it came to man-made snow, the ski area would like to have pumped out an extra 10 centimetres on main trails within 24 hours. The ski area’s snowmakers can pump out 60 million litres of snow over 30 hectares per day. The ski area has its own water reservoir on the mountain, and this was enough to keep the snowmakers going for four days straight. Mt Hutt is to open on June 15.

GPS tracking plan for abusers By Michelle Nelson South Canterbury Women’s Refuge manager Dawn Rangi-Smith is backing a call to electronically monitor serial domestic violence offenders. Yesterday Corrections Minister Anne Tolley proposed law changes enabling police to keep 24-hour tabs on high-risk domestic assault offenders, along the same lines as sex offenders are tracked. Her suggestion came after Christchurch man Nikki Roper was found guilty of murdering his exgirlfriend Alexsis Tovizi only days after he was released from jail in
December 2010, despite a protection order being in place. Roper had already served two prison terms for assaulting Ms Tovizi, whose name has been added to a growing list of women killed by partners or former partners who were subject to protection orders or prison release conditions. Other recent cases include Auckland teen Christie Marceau, killed by Akshay Anand Chand in December 2011. Chand was on bail for kidnapping and assaulting her a month earlier, and Vanessa Pickering from Christchurch, who was murdered by Malcolm Chaston while he was on bail for assaulting another
woman in 2010. Mrs Rangi-Smith said these high profile cases represented the very tip of the iceberg, and many protected women continued to suffer domestic abuse at the hands recidivist offenders. “It’s high time courts started taking protection order breaches seriously, in a lot of cases the offenders just get a slap on the wrist – it’s laughable really, if there are no consequences what is there to stop them?” she said. “We know better than anybody protection orders are only a piece of paper, but they are all the victim has to protect them. “In all these cases (domestic murders) there is
a long history of offending, these offenders have usually been before a court nine or 10 times with that partner or another – it’s still not being taken seriously enough.” Under 24-hour GPS monitoring, which came into effect last June, Corrections is alerted if a tracked offender enters a designated exclusion zone. It must be imposed by the Parole Board or sentencing judge, and currently applies only to high-risk and child sex offenders. Ms Tolley has instructed officials to investigate how this could be extended under current legislation to cover domestic violence offenders. Last year the Ashburton District
Court dealt with more than 50 breaches of protection orders. In one case the offender had 14 previous breaches, during which his “terrified” partner was subject to extreme violence, before he was sentenced to prison. He had previously been before the court for ignoring protection orders taken out by a previous partner. Mrs Rangi-Smith, whose service covers Mid Canterbury, said introducing electronic monitoring would be a good start better protecting women. There are currently 40 offenders subject to GPS tracking, and the system has already proved its worth.

POLL RESULT Yesterday’s result Q: Should Ashburton Council bail out Methven Heritage Centre?
Asbestos found Asbestos piping has been found buried at the QEII Stadium demolition site in Christchurch. The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) said while some asbestos was noted in the original plans, and addressed in the demolition, the discovery was unexpected. The small amount of piping was in the form of broken pipe pieces, and may have been offcuts of the original pipes buried when the complex was built in the 1970s. Some areas of the site near the piping, will be closed as a precaution to allow testing. This is to ensure no potentially affected debris has been inadvertently moved, and if so, can be contained, CERA said. Results of the testing will be known next week. - apnZ

Scholarship winner Kate Wootton of Ashburton with Freemasons Grand Secretary Laurence Milton.
Scholarship to help Kate’s mission Kate Wootton, of Ashburton, is a young woman on a mission — finding solutions to environmental problems resulting from climate change. And a $6000 Freemasons university scholarship will help her on the way. With her outstanding academic record and superb quantitative and mathematical skills, Ms Wootton swapped engineering for ecology and is studying for a Master of Science at the University of Canterbury. On Wednesday she was presented with the scholarship by fellow Mid Cantabrian and Canterbury university student Sam Johnson, on behalf of Freemasons New Zealand at Parliament’s Legislative Council Chamber. Ms Wootton was one of 34 top students from around the country to receive scholarships totalling almost quarter of a million dollars. On completion of her masters, Ms Wootton will do a PhD overseas, after which she plans a research career focused on climate change
and what can be done to mitigate its effects. The outdoors and environment are her passions, furthered through an exchange year at the University of British Colombia in Canada and as a Young Explorer with Mike Horn’s Pangaea Young Explorers’ Program. Freemasons Grand Master Selwyn Cooper said he was thrilled that Mr Johnson had agreed to speak to the gathering of scholarship recipients, their families and guests about the formation of The Student Volunteer Army and the opportunities that had since followed. “We provide these scholarships because we believe firmly in education, the opportunity it offers and the value it delivers society-wide. The only qualification for entry is that the students have consistent A-grades and that they be active volunteers in their communities. “We confidently expect our scholarship recipients to grow into our leaders of tomorrow,” said Mr Cooper.

Schools raise funds for stadium By Myles Hume Mid Canterbury schools have banded together to push the EA Networks Centre $5248.47 closer to construction. Fifteen schools from across the district held a mufti day on the last day of term one, looking to raise money through donations and sausage sizzles. Yesterday, representatives from each of the donat-
ing schools gathered in the Ashburton District Council chambers to deliver their individual sums to EA Networks Centre fundraising committee chairman Chris Robertson, who was grateful to receive $5248.47 collectively. The total is set to swell, with Ashburton Intermediate, Carew Peel Forest, Hinds, Mt SomersSpringburn and Mayfield Schools yesterday confirming they will hold mufti days this
term to raise money for the sporting complex. “This stadium is for you guys, I want to watch the St Joseph’s Titans take on the Methven at basketball, I want to be watching your county swimming sports there,” Mr Robertson said. “It’s outstanding, phenomenal what you have done.” The Ashburton District Council has put $25 million towards the project, leaving the public $5m to fundraise for the
Art show entries flood in Entry forms are coming in “thick and fast” for the Ashburton Society of Arts 49th Annual Exhibition as today’s deadline looms. Society president Lyndsay McCosker said artists generally left it to the last minute to enter, and she was currently being inundated with forms. “It’s going well, we have lots of entries coming in.” “There’s lots of regulars and a few new ones.” She expected about 500 entries altogether, with the majority from
project. The current tally sits at $4.75m, leaving $250,000 more for schools, businesses and everyday Mid Cantabrians to raise. The complex will be fit with four swimming pools, full sized basketball and netball courts, two hydroslides, among a host of other exciting features. The council is set to confirm the tender for the main construction on June 27, with the hope the complex will be fit for use in two years.

Mid Canterbury artists, but also from artists further afield in areas such as Temuka, Timaru and Christchurch. Last year there were 506 entries altogether representing about 150 artists, and she expected a similar number this year. The exhibition would have its opening and prize presentations on June 10. The exhibition, which will be at the Ashburton Art Gallery and feature works for sale, will run June 11 to June 23.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, May 17, 2013
By Sue Newman The first draft figures from the Ashburton Trust’s trading year have been run and chief executive Giles Beal is smiling. Sales are still climbing and while they’re not matching the dramatic recovery shown over the past two years when the trust climbed back from a trading slump, they’re still continuing to grow, Mr Beal said. Over a two-year period the trust has turned its finances around, going from significant trading losses to posting strong trading figures. And while the early growth rate was difficult to sustain, Mr Beal said the trust was committed to sales growth each year. The Hotel Ashburton was one area where sales did not continue to climb. “It was a pretty tough winter last year, particularly in the conference and function area. June to August is normally pretty good but we didn’t get the business we expected. This year, however, our bookings look good,” he said. Off-licence sales had been flat for some time and that seemed to be the trend nationally in the industry, Mr Beal said. “We’re up against it with supermarkets as this is a very price sensitive market with skinny margins. There’s a lot more competition around now with off-licences and while it’s a big part of our
business it’s a very mature market. We’ve got a number of sites and we’re not really looking to do anything new in this area.” One change the trust made during the year was to release its catering monopoly on the Ashburton Trust Event Centre. As part of its naming rights deal the trust also had catering and bar rights at the venue but this did not suit the needs of all users. The big improvers last year for the trust were Devon Tavern, Somerset Grocer and Braided Rivers. Looking ahead, the trust’s strategy for the year revolved around gaining greater efficiencies, he said. “We’ve really done the cranking up of sales and now we’re trying to do things smarter. We’ve done well but we’ve still got more to do.” Mr Beal said it was unlikely the trust would develop any new sites this trading year. It would, however, continue with its renovation and upgrading programme of existing sites. More than $600,000 will be spent at the Hotel Ashburton during the winter to upgrade function rooms. This comes on top of a big investment in ultra fast broadband that now gives the hotel the largest video conferencing capacity in the South Island – 2000 simultaneous users. This would be a key strategy in driving growth in the hotel’s conference and function business, Mr Beal said.
Historic church’s future in balance By Susan Sandys Baring Square Methodist Church parishioners will next week start grappling with the issue of whether to demolish or strengthen the earthquake-damaged building. Property officer Allan Tweed said parishioners would meet at their premises alongside the historic church on Wednesday evening. They would discuss the future of the early 20th century building, particularly in light of the dwindling nature of the church’s congregation. Mr Tweed said there were generally about 40 to 50 people at the weekly service each Sunday, and a smaller modern worship space next to the church had proven the perfect size. The historic church seated about 250. The meeting would be the start of a longer process, and it would give the opportunity for parishion-
ers to get information and start thinking about the issue. “The future of our church is in the balance, it’s quite a major decision that’s ahead of us, not unlike the Christchurch Cathedral,” Mr Tweed said. The meeting would be for parishioners only, despite the fact the building’s future would be likely to be of public interest due to it being a landmark in the town centre. Meetings involving the public could be held further down the track, he said. The church was expecting an insurance payout “sooner rather than later”. It was unknown at this stage how much that would be, and it had been decided to go ahead with the meeting next week even though that figure may not be available by then. “We just need to start talking really, and investigating that question, where to from here.”
Free winter bus service for Methven By Sue Newman A public transport service is about to arrive in Methven and it won’t cost its users a cent. The service is the brainchild of businessman David Dynes and he anticipates it will be welcomed by locals and visitors. The bus service would open up Methven to families, not just for dining after a day on Mt Hutt but also for things such as grocery
shopping or going to ski hire, Mr Dynes said. “Right now there’s no way for people to get around town, particularly if they don’t have a car. Now you’ll find a family will come and stay for seven nights at one lodge and the only restaurant they can go to is one that’s near the lodge because they have small children.” Mr Dynes said the bus could be used by locals too if they wanted a lift into town. It wouldn’t, however, be available for late night drop-offs.
The last run will be made at 9pm but that would meet the needs of the main market, families, he said. “People say you don’t have to walk far in Methven, but when it’s cold, the nights close in early and your kids are tired after a day’s skiing, any kind of walk is too much.” He’s looking for sponsorship from other Methven businesses and users can make a gold coin donation. The service is likely to cost about $20,000 to run for the season.
When Methven introduced the ‘kids 10 and under ski, stay and eat for free’ deal last winter, it had been an instant winnner; the free bus service added one more bonus deal to that package, Mr Dynes said. The bus will run on a loop around Methven’s accommodation businesses, restaurants and the town centre, every 30 minutes between 5pm and 9pm. The service will operate from the opening of Mt Hutt until closing day.

Students produce own wildfoods By Myles Hume You would be forgiven if you had mistaken Methven Primary for the local butchery yesterday. The school’s senior pupils held their own rendition of the Hokitika Wildfoods Fesitval in its hall, as the school raised $450 to go towards preserving the wetlands of Mid Canterbury.
Venison, duck, tahr and even crayfish were among the wild meats available, along with platters of ewes’ brains and huhugrubs for the more adventurous diners. The school’s wildfoods festival was sparked by its pupils, led by Stuart Cooke, after they visited Russell Langdon’s Westerfield wetlands property and found a wild cat with dead pukeko birds
surrounding it. The youngsters decided to raise the $80 cost to buy a cat trap for Mr Langdon, however they raised significantly more than that, putting other funds towards native plants to support a wetlands project and other aspects of Mid Canterbury’s plant and wildlife. The wildfoods festival saw pupils bring money to school where they could buy the exotic
dishes, which were donated by Methven parents, many of whom are keen hunters. Methven Primary principal Chris Murphy said the day was fitting for many of the pupils who were researching introduced species in class. He said it also taught the pupils aspects of enterprise, fundraising, and food safety and preparation.
Rakaia’s new doctor to commute By Sam Morton Rakaia’s next temporary doctor will commute from Christchurch daily, despite after-hours cover making up a significant part of the role. Traditionally, GPs in the town have lived in Rakaia or nearby – in order to provide round-the-clock assistance in an emergency. However, Dr Rob Wolf, shifting from Chesapeake in America, has signalled he will live in Christchurch with his wife, who has employment at Canterbury University. The duty of after-hours care will be negotiated with Dr Wolf on his arrival, but Rakaia Medical Centre
practice manager Sue England insists the centre will still provide after-hours medical assistance. The centre currently shares the after-hours duty with the Methven Medical Centre and the practice rural nurse specialist is also rostered on as cover. Mrs England said while the Rakaia Medical Centre Trust offered assistance with accommodation, Dr Wolf opted to live in Avonhead, where his wife and two children will be based. It is understood Dr Wolf and his wife are shifting to Canterbury with their two children. “His (Dr Wolf’s) wife will be working too, so ultimately it’s what works for them best and the arrangement
still meets all the requirements of the role, so there won’t be any issue with Dr Wolf commuting,” she said. The rural practice has often struggled to retain doctors in the town due to the heavy demand for after-hours care and lucrative opportunities in other cities or overseas. This year, since the departure of popular GP Jean-Marc de Maroussem, the practice has been covered by several locum doctors and on-call staff – but the centre’s hunt for a full-time applicant is constantly ongoing. Mrs England said the trust was looking forward to welcoming Dr Wolf, who has signed a contract through to June next year.
“Rob is a very experienced rural GP who comes highly recommended,” Mrs England said. “Staff and trustees have met him through Skype and were most impressed with his friendly and warm manner. “His only request to date is frequent access to really good coffee,” she said. Dr Wolf will provide cover for 11 months as the centre’s daily fulltime GP. Meanwhile, the full-time position is turning heads internationally and the trust is closely monitoring and following up on promising applicants. Dr Wolf arrives in July to take over from fellow American Dr Peters.

Protection orders lacking any real teeth T
he death of Alexsis Tovizi is another stark reminder that our system of protection orders is lacking real teeth. The Christchurch woman has joined a long tragic list of females killed by men on protection orders. The killer, Nikki Roper, had twice been jailed before for assaulting the young woman including trying to strangle her. This case come hot on the heels of the conviction of Jeremy McLaughlin who killed Jade
OUR VIEW Bayliss while her mother Tina had a protection order in place against him. Protection orders are often not worth the paper that they are written on, as authorities are unable or unwilling to police and punish offenders effectively, virtually leaving the victims to defend themselves, literally. Thankfully, corrections Minister Anne Tolley has now started making some
encouraging noises around better tracking of serious domestic violence offenders. The Corrections Department already has systems in place to track high-risk sexual offenders but now the minister wants to investigate the possibility of extending this to domestic violence offenders. With the current technology it should not be difficult for an alarm to go off in the
Coen Lammers editor
local police station when an electronic tracking device gets within 500 meters of the places or people they are not allowed to see. Minister Tolley has reacted to
the murder of Alexsis Tovizi and other similar cases where former tormentors turn into killers, but the concept of making the protection orders more effective should be taken further. Ms Tolley’s suggestions would only cover those offenders who are on the books of the Correction Department, but Justice Minister Judith Collins should also become part of this conversation to start looking after every person with a protection order.

A glance through our files shows that only the very worst offenders are jailed but most walk away with some community service or a small fine. It offers little protection or confidence to the victims who can only live in fear of the next visit. Police are limited in what they can do, but the Government desperately needs to send a signal to victims and offenders that they are taking these protection orders seriously.
Bryan Guy urges his son’s killer to confess
orders out easily so there must be sufficient grounds to suspect real and imminent danger to certain individuals. Sadly though, the Ashburton Court, like every other in the country, witnesses a regular stream of mostly men who simply ignore the orders and continue to torment their victims. In the past 12 months, women and Mid Canterbury have been threatened in person, by phone or text, assaulted and raped by men on protection orders.

Few details about death Police had not released the name of the 53-year-old man who died in a workplace accident in Napier on Wednesday as of late yesterday. A police spokesperson said they were still trying to contact some members of the family. The man, one of a team of contractors working inside the
old Farmer’s building, died after being struck on the head by a steel beam. The accident happened about 3.45pm and the man died at the scene. The site was closed off immediately after the accident and remained closed yesterday. The accident is now under
Gold beats wheelchair in plane seat clash By Steve Deane A flight from Auckland was delayed when one of Air NZ’s “gold elite” passengers refused to give up her front-row seat to accommodate a wheelchair-bound woman. Tanya Black, a 39-year-old television producer who broke her back after falling down a flight of stairs five years ago, says she was left humiliated when the woman kicked up a fuss, refusing to sit in two rows back for the hour-long flight to Wellington on Wednesday morning. Airline staff had seated Ms Black at 1A, the first seat on the plane where there is more leg room, because an “aisle chair” needed to transport her back to the third row was not immediately available. The narrow, wheeled chair is used to move disabled people on planes. When the other woman boarded the plane, accompanied by whom Ms Black thought were her husband, two teenage sons and daughter, an air hostess asked her to sit in Ms Black’s original seat. She refused, apparently telling a stewardess her frequent flyer status entitled her to sit in 1A. Air New Zealand’s website states that Gold Elite Airpoints members are among the first in line for any available premium seating. The flight was delayed while airline staff found an aisle chair so Ms Black could be shifted back two rows. The woman did not ask the two teenage boys, who were seated next to her in the front row, to move in her place. “My colleague and I were quite gobsmacked, really, that somebody could be so callous and uncaring - believe that their Gold Elite status gave them the right to treat somebody with a disability with such disdain,” Ms Black said. She had travelled extensively for her work - making television programmes about how disabled people face challenges - and had never experienced such discrimination. “I’ve heard stories of discrimination all over but I have never experienced, or even heard of anyone experiencing, something so blatantly ignorant and rude,” she said. “I felt humiliated. For anybody with a disability to be humiliated, I just, you know, it
Paraplegic Tanya Black destroyed my faith in humanity for the day.” Airline staff pleaded with the woman - who Ms Black described as a “well turned out” 40-something blonde - to change her mind. “I saw the air hostess lean in and I know she would have been telling her that I am disabled and they didn’t have an aisle chair. This woman said ‘I don’t care’.” Ms Black also heard the woman mention her Gold Elite status. “I don’t know who she was,” Ms Black said. “She seemed to think she was somebody. All that time she just stood there. The air hostess asked her a couple of times to reconsider because it was delaying the flight. She was like ‘nope’. “I was just so embarrassed. I felt sorry for her kids, actually.” The fact she was travelling to Wellington for meetings about the TVNZ-screened programme Attitude, which chronicles the challenges faced by disabled people, was ironic, Ms Black said. “Our whole thing is by showing how disabled people are getting out there and living their lives we can change perceptions around disabled people.” An Air New Zealand official said it was satisfied its staff did all they could to “accommodate the needs of both customers”. The airline confirmed the flight was delayed by eight minutes because of a boarding issue and getting Ms Black seated. There was no issue with the availability of aisle chairs and the problem experienced on flight NZ247 did not occur often. - APNZ

Kiwis not on board By Anna Leask The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade says it is unlikely any New Zealanders were among the tourists on a plane that crashed yesterday in Nepal. The plane crashed while attempting to land at the mountain airstrip of Jomsom, located some 200 kilometres northwest of Kathmandu yesterday. It was not clear if there were any casualties and the identity and nationalities of the passengers on board is unknown. The area is popular with foreign trekkers visiting the Mount Annapurna area and Hindu pilgrims visiting the revered Muktinath temple. An MFAT spokesman said the New Zealand High Commission in New Dehli was following up on reports of the crash. -APNZ
Scott Guy’s devastated father has made a plea to his son’s killer to give themselves up, nearly a year after a family member was acquitted of the murder. Bryan Guy still wants the question of who murdered his son answered, saying he doesn’t want the case to drag on for years without being solved. “Most definitely of course, of course, we hope someone will be held accountable - sooner rather than later.” Police have promised to investigate any new lead, and private investigators are working on the case. But Mr Guy believes there is only one thing that would bring a case that has riveted Kiwis to an end. “One day somebody’s conscience might make them say something, I guess. But that might be wishful thinking ...” Ewen Macdonald, 32, was found not guilty of 31-year-old Scott Guy’s murder in July last year. He is serving a prison sentence for arson and vandalism he committed against Scott Guy and his wife, Kylee, and for poaching and killing the calves of another farmer. He was married to Scott’s sister, Anna. Scott Guy was his best man at his wedding, he and the slain man were business partners and after Scott was murdered Macdonald was one of the pallbearers. Prosecutors alleged a jealous feud between the pair escalated to a pre-dawn shooting, but the jury acquitted Macdonald after a near-month long trial. Although Bryan Guy is relieved the court case is over, a feeling of frustration remains because the family are no closer to knowing who was waiting for Scott at the end of his driveway on July 8, 2010. “There are still unanswered questions. The main one is, who killed Scott? Everyone has got an opinion but proving it - the proof is the unanswered question.” In the months since the trial ended public fascination with the case has remained high. Anna Guy, Ewen Macdonald’s former wife, has moved to Auckland and has featured on magazine covers and on a television current affairs show as she

Kylee Guy is living in Hawkes Bay with her two boys. She has enlisted the help of private investigators to uncover new evidence and re-open her husband’s murder inquiry. Bryan Guy and his wife Jo have tried to focus on their children and grandchildren’s futures, and not to dwell on the past. “I guess the main focus has been trying to restart our lives, particularly for our children. There have been a lot of changes happen in the last 10 months.” Nikki Guy, Scott’s other sister, is married and will have a baby this year, and his brother Callum Guy has left New Zealand and is living in Queensland with his fiancee. When the trial ended, inquiry head Inspector Sue Schwalger said police had “put all the evidence together and put the best available evidence before the jury”. She said no stone was left unturned, adding: “We will investigate any other information that comes to light.” Police have refused to comment about the case, and their continuing involvement in it, unless questions are submitted under the Official Information Act. - APNZ

English stays on track By Adam Bennett Finance Minister Bill English has stayed on the track set in previous years in yesterday’s Budget, reconfirming the return to surplus in two years while taking steps to reduce the risk of a housing bubble. Social housing is a big element of the Budget. There will be tenancy reviews for all state house tenants, with up to 3000 tenants to be moved on within four years. However, many of those tenants are expected to find homes in the non-government community housing sector. The Budget includes $900 million in new spending, up from the $800 million previously indicated. However, as Mr English said in a pre-Budget speech, his firm hold on the Government’s purse strings continues for the next few years and he has trimmed the forecast increases for future spending That helps his 2014-2015 Budget surplus which is now forecast to be $75 million rather than $66 mil-
lion previously indicated. That’s achieved in spite of cutting ACC levies that year by $300 million. However, achieving surplus is helped by cutting the forecast allowance for new spending by $200 million. Mr English said the cuts to ACC levies - enabled by the Government’s work to rebuild the scheme’s long term sustainability - would continue, with a further cut in 2015/16 taking savings for workers and employers to $1 billion a year. Housing measures feature strongly, with Mr English saying the Government would introduce legislation today to enable the housing accord announced last week with Auckland Council. The legislation will allow for similar
agreements with other councils to fast-track the consenting process for new subdivisions. But while last week’s agreement with Auckland appeared to be a fairly amicable affair, Mr English revealed the Government would reserve the right to take more dramatic action. The new legislation will allow the Government to establish “special housing areas” and issue consents itself. Meanwhile, to tackle the risk to the wider economy posed by fast rising house prices and a possible crash, Mr English confirmed that he’d signed an agreement with Reserve Bank Governor Graeme Wheeler to give him new tools to curb increases in housing debt if required. Measures agreed included restrictions on high loan to value ratio loans and increases in the amount of money banks must hold in reserve as a buffer during credit booms. The Budget also includes a series of social housing initiatives including the introduction of reviewable tenancies for all state
house tenants, with 3000 tenants expected to be moved out by 2017. However, the Budget extends income related rents to be community housing providers. Meanwhile, Mr English confirmed hydro-giant Meridian Energy, the country’s largest power company would be the next to be partially privatised under the mixed ownership model. Valued at about $6.5 billion, 49 per cent of Meridian’s shares will be sold by October. The Budget allocates $1.5 billion of money raised from the sale of Meridian and Mighty River to capital expenditure projects on top of the $569 million committed last year. The largest share this year $426 million - goes toward the redevelopment of Christchurch hospitals, which Mr English said would be the single biggest building project ever for New Zealand’s health system. A further $94 million goes to the KiwiRail turnaround plan, $50 million goes to speed up the deployment of technology in
By Claire Trevett All state house tenants will have their tenancies reviewed and be forced to move on once their circumstances change under changes made in the Budget - a step expected to result in 3000 tenants moving out of state houses by 2017. In other housing changes, the Budget also provides $26.6 million for non-government social housing groups to take a greater role in providing housing to those in most need - including becoming eligible for tenants to get government income-related rent subsidies. Currently only Housing NZ tenants qualify for the subsidies. The most controversial aspect of the changes is likely to be the tenant reviews. Finance Minister Bill English said although state housing was required for those most in need, “it can become a trap for those whose circumstances could improve”. “We want to ensure people are in the most appropriate houses for them. We will be looking at when tenants’ circumstances change and when they no longer have higher needs and will help to move them into other housing.” He said that there were some tenants who could afford to rent in the private market if suitable accommodation could be found. Housing Minister Nick Smith said currently about 10,200 state house tenants were subjected for tenancy reviews, which currently apply to tenancies signed after July 2011. The new policy will increase that to another 53,200 tenants who had signed prior to that cut-off and the reviews will begin in 2014. Housing New Zealand has estimated that the reviews will result in about 1,000 tenants moving out of state houses in 2015/16 and a further
2000 in 2016/17. The Budget has allocated $46.8 million to extend the tenancy reviews to all Housing Corporation tenants, and it is expected to cost the Government $35.4 million a year from 2016/17 as tenants who move on are replaced by tenants with higher needs who qualify for higher rent subsidies. Dr Smith said the reviews would be undertaken “with common sense”. “This will mean people can rent state houses when they have high housing needs, and for as long as those needs persist. They will then be given support to move into alternative housing when their situation improves and they are in a position to take that step to independence.” Dr Smith said the reforms in social housing marked a “significant shift from a policy of state housing to a more diverse social housing sector.” “These reforms will open the door for community housing providers to house thousands more people, with the Government funding this on the same basis as Housing NZ.” The Ministry of Social Development will also take over from Housing NZ in assessing people’s housing needs - a step Social Development Minister Paula Bennett said would allow people’s needs to be considered along with social and income support. Dr Smith said that community housing providers often did a better job than the state in meeting the need of families. “New Zealand is out of step internationally with the state dominating social housing provision. There are real social gains from integrating housing provision with services to support people with disabilities, mental health issues, drug and alcohol problems and family dysfunction.” - APNZ

Contributions were to be resumed when the Government’s books returned to a healthy surplus - in the 20182019 year - but that will now happen two years later in 2020/21. The Budget also tightens the screws on those with outstanding student loans, introducing a new ability to arrest the worst offenders at the border. Mr English said the Budget builds on the Government’s Business Growth Agenda with a $100 million a year “internationally focused growth package”. The largest part of that is a $200 million increase over four years for science, innovation, and research. That money goes to expand current research and development grants and a new repayable grant to fledgling businesses to help them become “investment ready”. - APNZ

The Government is to look at setting up a ‘warrant of fitness’ for rental houses and reduce reliance on loan sharks by piloting a scheme to provide low- or no-interest loans for people on low incomes. The two measures are part of a raft of Budget initiatives aimed at helping those in poverty. The micro-financing scheme was recommended by an Advisory Panel on Child Poverty which said that in homes where debt was a problem there was less money for basic needs of children such as food, clothing, heating, transport and schooling. Social Development Minister Paula Bennett said debt could create hardship for people, and the Government was investigating partnering up with community groups and financial organisations such as banks to get access to affordable loans. It was expected to make further decisions by September. Other measures aimed at addressing poverty include $100 million for insulating homes of those on low incomes, and a whiteware programme under which beneficiaries could buy new whiteware from approved providers with Social Development repayable grants, rather than buying second-hand. There will also be a trial of a ‘Warrant of Fitness’ programme to assess the health and warmth of rental housing, which will initially be run on state houses. The assessment standards would be developed by a forum of those in the sector, including councils, private rental groups, and tenant advocates. Housing Minister Nick Smith said it would initially apply to the 69,000 state houses, but it was intended to extend it to all social housing pro-
viders, in particular homes where the Government was paying rent subsidies. He said it complemented the insulation scheme: all Housing NZ properties were expected to be insulated by the end of this year. A Warrant of Fitness for rental properties was picked up as Labour Party policy after it was recommended by the Advisory Group on Child Poverty. The Maori Party had listed the initiatives in its support agreement with National and formed a Ministerial Committee on poverty which was headed by Deputy Prime Minister Bill English. Mr English said although spending increases had been ‘modest,’ it was also targeted, and poverty reduction and vulnerable children were one of the Government’s priorities. While there was no Budget announcement on funding for food in schools, Mr English said the Government was looking at the issue and was expected to make an announcement in a few weeks. The Government has also allocated $35m for extended family members, such as grandparents, who are caring for children. NZ First MP Tracey Martin has a members’ bill to extend allowances which foster parents qualify for, such as a clothing allowance, and for those who care for extended family members. The Government is expected to support that bill when it comes before Parliament. Ms Bennett said more than 12,000 children were being cared for by family other than their parents, often because of the death of a parent or a family breakdown. She acknowledged that if not for those carers, the children would be in state care. She had also set up a ministerial reference group to advise on how such carers could be better supported. -APNZ

Damages ’owing’ College chief executive Selena Fox told APNZ that TV3 had done none of those things, and she had not heard from them since she declined to comment on TV3’s Hibberd story two years ago. TV3 declined to comment yesterday about possible remedies to the college. Hibberd was found guilty of five charges of forging documents and three of obtaining by deception after a jury trial at the Auckland District Court in March. Judge Wade insisted that the Campbell Live story be played to the court room at Hibberd’s sentencing yesterday. During the interview, Hibberd wept as she told the reporter how much she loved her job. “I would never, ever do anything,” she said in response to a question about the legitimacy of her qualifications. The programme ended with several documents, purporting to be correspondence from the college, being shown on screen. But in truth Hibberd had failed an assignment twice when she decided to forge her qualification, rather than sit the test for a third time. She told her employer at Clevedon Kidz Early Childhood Centre that she had passed and even made up a fake diploma and cover letters.
By Edward Gay A teaching authority says it is yet to receive a damages payment from TV3, despite a District Court judge’s conclusion that the broadcaster has a “moral obligation” to do so. Judge Roy Wade slammed TV3’s Campbell Live programme after they aired a story about early childhood teacher Tracy Hibberd, who was then being investigated for forging her qualifications. During the item, John Campbell referred to Hibberd’s diploma and said “it looks legit to us”. Judge Wade said the story damaged the reputation of the NZ Tertiary College which had spent over $32,000 investigating the case. He said Hibberd’s own lawyer described the photocopied documents as appearing “artificial and amateurish”. “... It does seem to me to be a case where journalists have rushed into judgement without ascertaining first of all the basic facts in the matter.” Judge Wade said TV3 had a “moral obligation” to set the record straight, apologise and make payments to the college for its financial loss.
• Serious lacerations A Filipino crewman working aboard a logging ship at Port of Tauranga suffered serious lacerations after a crane-operated winch wire struck him across his chest and neck yesterday morning. The 42-year-old was working onboard the Nordic Visby about 5.30am operating a winch, when an apparent mechanical fault resulted in the winch wire catching him across his body. The man was taken to Tauranga Hospital and was in intensive care. -APNZ
Judge Wade said the fake diploma included a gold embossed star that had been cut out of another certificate. He said a cursory look would have revealed it was fake because there was no sign of embossing on the back. The fake qualification meant she was promoted to team leader and got a pay rise. Crown prosecutor Mark Williams said Hibberd went on national tv and blamed the college. “She was lying to the nation”. Hibberd’s lawyer Lorraine Smith said her client is still protesting her innocence, and had low self-esteem and had learning difficulties. “She felt battered and bruised by the education system.” In sentencing, Judge Wade said Hibberd had tried to shift the blame to two of her former colleagues, but evidence at trial showed she was the only one with access to the building when her fake qualifications were created. ‘You know you did it, I know you did it and the jury who convicted you knows you did it.” Judge Wade had started with a jail term but took Hibberd’s previous good record into account and reduced her sentence to home detention. - APNZ

Missing man’s car found at forest Search teams will keep looking for missing man Leslie Wright overnight, with reinforcements joining the search this morning. Mr Wright’s car was found on a forestry road near Barryville on Wednesday night, allowing searchers to focus their efforts, Sergeant Phil Bell of Waikato Search and Rescue Squad said. “Up till then we were looking for his vehicle somewhere between Kawhia on the North Island’s West Coast and Waihi towards the East Coast. “But all that changed with the vehicle being located, and we have about 50
police and Land Search and Rescue volunteers involved in what is quite a major search operation.” The search has involved dogs, a visual tracking team, a police helicopter and ground search teams. “We put the Police Eagle helicopter to search waterways, clear areas, swamps and other open ground while a scent tracking dog used from first light was replaced about 4pm with a second specialist dog,” Mr Bell said. “We’ve also had a visual tracking team following footprints from where the car was found but so far we’ve not been able
to locate Mr Wright.” Mr Bell said the area being searched had flat terrain with quite close bush and a thick canopy, which had previously caught out people who are unable to see the sky to navigate. Family of Mr Wright, 63, were at the search base yesterday helping with the search. “Both they and police hold concerns for his wellbeing given he hasn’t been seen for the best part of four days.” Mr Wright, from Buller, was last seen on Monday in Te Kuiti where he had been staying at a holiday park. -APNZ

Anchor sales up by 10% By Abby Gillies Sales of Anchor milk have risen more than 10 per cent since the company launched its controversial light-proof bottles just over a month ago, the company says. On shelves since April 8, the 100 per cent light-proof was described by Fonterra as the company’s “biggest innovation yet”. The triple-layer bottle prevents light exposure which affected the taste of milk, meaning milk tasted as good on the last day of its 15-day shelf life as on day one, Fonterra said. Since its launch, supermarket sales of Anchor milk had increased by 10 to 12 per cent and supermarket consumer testing revealed more than 80 per cent
of 40,000 people preferred the taste compared to milk from a standard bottle, said group marketing manager Craig Irwin. “We’re really pleased. That’s even higher than we anticipated pre-launch, where early testing suggested 70 per cent would prefer the taste,” he said. The increase meant the brand’s market share was up from 13 to 14 per cent, which was a “significant shift” in the annual milk market of 200 million litres sold in supermarkets, said Mr Irwin. “Consumers behaviours are so established in the category that people kind of shop milk on autopilot ... so to change that behaviour is quite significant”. Consumer feedback had been largely positive with many people noticing a difference in freshness and taste, he said. – APNZ

Funds approved for Cyprus bail-out The IMF’s executive board has approved a $1.3 billion loan for Cyprus as part of a larger bailout package meant to avert a debt default. The IMF, one of the “troika” of international lenders behind the bail-out, said yesterday it had agreed to provide a three-
year loan of $1.33 billion for the small Mediterranean country, its contribution to a 10 billion euro ($13.3 billion) total bail-out. The approval allows an immediate payout of $110.7 million. The IMF said the loan was “intended to stabilise the country’s financial system ... and sup-
port the recovery of economic activity.” Cyprus had to meet certain conditions to obtain the funds which included forcing depositors to take major losses on savings over 100,000 euros in the country’s two biggest lenders. – AP
IMF’s Lagarde warns of rising income gap hurt International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde has decried rising income disparity, noting its harmful effect on global economic growth. Lagarde, in a speech on poverty reduction in Washington, said the top 0.5 per cent of the global population holds more than 35 per cent of the wealth. “This has not gone unnoticed: the Arab Spring and ‘Occupy movement’, though very different, were motivated in part by discontent with these trends,” the IMF managing director said, according to the pre-
pared text. In the United States, where the Occupy Wall Street movement began in 2011, the richest 1.0 per cent of the population holds 18 per cent of all pre-tax income, compared with a share of 8.0 per cent 25 years ago, she said. “Rising income inequality is a growing concern for policymakers around the world,” she said, adding that the IMF had begun to look more closely at the issue and its effect on the global economy. Lagarde, speaking at the annu-
al meeting of the Bretton Woods Committee, said economic stability was crucial to poverty reduction. She noted the global lender had sharply increased resources available to low-income countries and continued to charge zero interest on all concessional lending. But, Lagarde said, growth in the global economy needed to be paired with income equity to promote stability, calling for “expanding the pie” and “making sure it is distributed more fairly”. The IMF in recent months has

criticised austerity programmes and spending reductions undertaken by governments seeking to close fiscal deficits, saying they should be balanced with growth measures. Policies that can help spread the wealth more fairly include reducing tax exemptions, fighting tax evasion and increasing social spending to reduce poverty, Lagarde said. An OECD report released this week said the global economic crisis had significantly widened the income gap in the world’s leading – AFP economies.

Wave of bombings in Iraq kills at least 33 A car bomb exploded near a bus station in Baghdad’s main Shiite district yesterday, the deadliest in a series of explosions that killed at least 33 people nationwide, officials said. The bloodshed came amid growing tensions between the Shiite-led government and minority Sunnis following a deadly security crackdown on a Sunni protest camp in the country’s north. Violence has ebbed sharply in Iraq, but a spike in attacks has raised fears about a return of the sectarian bloodshed
that pushed the country to the brink of civil war in 2006-2007. Majority Shiites control the levers of power in post-Saddam Hussein Iraq. Wishing to rebuild the nation rather than revert to open warfare, they have largely restrained their militias over the past five years or so as Sunni extremist groups such as al-Qaida have targeted them with occasional large-scale attacks. An increase attacks against Sunni mosques has fed concerns about a return to retaliatory warfare. The day
began violently when an explosives-laden car parked in the centre of the ethnically divided city of Kirkuk, killing three civilians and wounding eight. An hour later, another parked car bomb exploded in the same area, killing two children and their parents as they were travelling in a car nearby, the city’s deputy police chief Major General Torhan Abdul-Rahman Youssef said. Civilians joined forces with rescuers and policemen in searching for survivors in a partially dam-
aged house after the first explosion. A wailing man was repeatedly trying to make his way through to the house, but he was prevented by the crowds. After the second attack, firefighters struggled to extinguish the blaze that engulfed the car with at least three charred bodies of a woman and two children visible. Kirkuk is home to a mix of Arabs, Kurds and Turkomen, who all have competing claims to the oil-rich area. The Kurds want to
incorporate it into their self-rule region in Iraq’s north, but Arabs and Turkomen are opposed. Hours later, several bombs struck within a 90-minute time frame as Iraqis were heading home from work or doing errands in mainly Shiite areas of Baghdad. The deadliest was in the sprawling slum of Sadr City, an area that saw some of the fiercest fighting between Americans and Shiite militias during the peak of sectarian bloodshed. Police and hospital officials
said a car bomb exploded near a crowded bus stop in the area, killing at least seven people and wounding 20. The blast also damaged several shops and cars in the area, which was sealed off by police. A car bomb also struck firefighters minutes after they arrived on the scene to extinguish a burning car in the mainly Shiite Kazimiyah district in northern Baghdad, killing two and wounding nine others.

Dr gets third life sentence A US abortion doctor was sentenced yesterday to a third life term for killing an aborted baby that he described as so big it could “walk to the bus”. The case has made Dr Kermit Gosnell a flashpoint in the nation’s bitter debate over legalised abortion. Gosnell was convicted this week of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies born alive then stabbed with scissors. He was given two life sentences Wednesday in a deal with prosecutors that spared him a potential death sentence. He is not eligible for parole. The third sentence was handed down yesterday for the baby known as Baby A, whose teen mother had been nearly 30 weeks pregnant, prosecution witnesses estimated after studying cellphone photos taken by astonished staffers.
A six-year-old girl drowned when a small boat crammed with immigrants trying to enter Greece illegally sank off an eastern Aegean Sea islet. Greece’s Merchant Marine Ministry says 21 people, mainly Syrians, were rescued after the vessel foundered for unknown reasons yesterday off Farmakonissi. The nationality of the drowned child was not available. Uninhabited Farmakonissi, just off the Turkish coast, is regularly used by human trafficking rings to drop off people who pay them handsomely to be clandestinely taken into Greece. – AP
“That baby will live with me forever. And when they found him guilty of Baby A, it just brought such joy to me,” said prosecutor Joanne Pescatore. The 72-year-old Gosnell was also sentenced to 2½ to five years in prison for the 2009 overdose death of a patient who was repeatedly sedated by his untrained medical assistants. Firefighters spent more an hour trying to get the comatose woman’s stretcher through the byzantine clinic and out a padlocked side door. Prosecutors argued that Gosnell killed late-term babies born alive by severing their spines and taught several staff members the technique. Nine former clinic workers were convicted, and four others pleaded guilty to murder. Gosnell was acquitted in the deaths of four other infants. – AP

Obama fires tax man An angry President Barack Obama has sacked the acting head of the US Internal Revenue Service over a fast-moving scandal sparked when officials unfairly targeted conservative groups. Obama said Treasury Secretary Jack Lew had asked for and received the resignation of tax agency chief Steven Miller and promised a new system of checks and safeguards to make sure the episode was not repeated. “Given the controversy surrounding this audit, it’s important to institute new leadership that can help restore confidence going forward,” Obama said. The president, who has dismissed Republican attempts to link him to the scandal at the independent IRS agency, also pledged to work directly with Congress as it carries out its oversight duties in the matter. Obama said that evidence of abuses in the tax agency, revealed by a report by a government watchdog released on Wednesday, were
inexcusable. “Americans have a right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it,” Obama said at the White House, after meeting top Treasury Department officials. “I will not tolerate this kind of behaviour in any agency, but especially in the IRS,” he said. Scandal erupted when it emerged that officials studying tax exempt status applications singled out groups with names including phrases like “Tea Party” or “Patriots”, which could thus be expected to be fiercely opposed to Obama. Republican congressman Darrell Issa told CNN that Obama had taken a “good first step” and promised a robust congressional probe into the scandal. “The president will find very willing partners on Capitol Hill,” he said. “I think in this case, we very much take him at his word that he wants to be open and transparent, in fixing the system and putting – AFP new controls in place.”

ARIES (Mar 21st Apr 20th) Your word skills will take on a silkier vibe in the next three weeks as Venus passes through the vibrant energies of Gemini. Getting together with the important people in your life and sharing the good things can certainly bring great pleasure. You might decide to organize a barbecue or host a party and can do these wonderfully well.
At the opening ceremony, DiCaprio, joined by his Gatsby co-star, Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan, declared the 66th Cannes officially begun. Over the next 12 days, dozens of the world’s most artistically ambitious films will premiere on Cannes’ global stage. But Thursday was a day for blockbusters – both the big-budget Gatsby and Hollywood’s most accomplished director of spectacle: Steven Spielberg.
Spielberg is serving as jury president at this year’s Cannes. His presence here is a rarity (he’s had films at Cannes before, including E.T. and Sugarland Express, but never had a movie in competition), and he was received like a visiting head of state, a king of cinema. The Lincoln director received a standing ovation at the opening ceremony and was serenaded with a performance of Miss Celie’s Blues from his 1985 film, The Color Purple. He heads

GEMINI (May 22nd Jun 21st) Someone may drop a major hint in your direction today and it may be that they’d like to get to know you a whole lot better. Then again, if you have been mulling over your options in the romantic sphere, the extra magic that Venus moving into Gemini will bestow upon you can see you become more optimistic and outgoing.
CANCER (Jun 22nd - Jul 23rd) Mercury and the Sun are very close together in the part of your solar horoscope that influences your long-term future. This combination can see you make some enlightened choices because it adds energy to your thinking. Unfortunately, it can also see you make hasty ones too. So, with this in mind, carefully weigh up your options.
LEO (Jul 24th - Aug 23rd) You could attract the limelight today and this could see you receive some plaudits. If you have been feeling the pressure of your responsibilities, you may be pleasantly surprised by who speaks out for you or gives you discreet support. The chances are that you may have more fans and be more appreciated than you had realised.
VIRGO (Aug 24th Sep 23rd) If you are someone with a natural love of gleaning information, you can find yourself proactive today, perhaps searching for insights online or in your local library, or extending connections further afield. This would also be a good day to check out academic or training course possibilities. Curiosity can certainly be an asset.

• Solar flares fly The Sun has unleashed three potent solar flares in just under 24 hours, marking the most intense activity yet this year and causing limited interruptions to high-frequency radio communications. One of them was classified as an X3.2 flare, with X-class flares being the most intense type, the US space agency said. “This is the strongest X-class flare of 2013 so far, surpassing in strength the two X-class flares that occurred earlier in the 24-hour period,” NASA said. – AFP

TAURUS (Apr 21st May 21st) Your love of the good things in life is set to be accentuated now, and whether your personal preference for these comes through shopping at your local mall, natural products, or those which are more exclusive, it doesn’t really matter. The trick is not to let any upsurge in your income get spent too quickly, for there is a chance of this now.
A deer has taken a ride on a Pennsylvania bus. The Johnstown Tribune-Democrat newspaper reports the whitetailed deer crashed through the windshield of a public bus being driven yesterday evening in Johnstown, about 105km east of Pittsburgh. The deer hopped around frantically near the driver before jumping on empty seats and running in circles in the aisle. Authorities say the driver stopped the bus and opened the door and the deer got off. County transportation spokesman Josh Yoder says it “just walked off the bus”. – AP

New home for polar bear orphan It may have been the most anticipated package ever delivered to the zoo in Buffalo, New York: an orphaned polar bear cub that arrived yesterday from Alaska and will spend the summer with another cub born six months ago. Kali arrived at Buffalo Niagara International Airport yesterday ending a 14-hour trip that was set in motion in March when a hunter in Alaska realised an adult female bear he’d killed was nursing. He followed the tracks back to the den, crawled down inside, found a cub, pulled it out, put it in his coveralls ... then got hold of US Fish and Wildlife. – AP

LIBRA (Sep 24th Oct 23rd) You may need to probe some information and then ask some pertinent questions. However, if this is so, the arrival of Venus in your sister Air sign of Gemini today suggests that the best way to do this is diplomatically. If you do try to pin down someone’s position they could prove elusive, so its better to tease what you want out of them.
SCORPIO (Oct 24th - Nov 22nd) The most passionate side of your nature is set to be aroused in the next three weeks. This could see more intensity creep into your love life but today, ironically, you are asked to retain both an air of detachment and an ability to stand back from events and not get too caught up in emotion. Talk with a trusted confidant if need be.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23rd - Dec 21st) The next three weeks can be fabulous for restoring harmony and balance into your relationships - that is of course, if any are currently out of kilter. Even if none are, this can be a fab time to forge new alliances, to build co-operation, and also to become more conscious of the needs of those people you interact with closely.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd - Jan 20th) Muster as much mental dexterity as possible today. The faster you are on the uptake, the better you can do. This can see you multi-task and be inventive, and not short of applying your great sense of fun either. In fact, by making people laugh you can make some serious points in a way which will make them much more receptive.
AQUARIUS (Jan 21st - Feb 19th) Venus glides into a fab zone for your sign today, opening up the proverbial window of opportunity as far as your love and social lives are concerned. If you have felt more like spending time at home, even alone in solitude, this is a reminder not to forsake the other part of your nature which is more gregarious and outgoing.
SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD
PISCES (Feb 20th Mar 20th) Words can come easily today. But as much as this may give you extra zip and vivacity, equally, you may say something in a split second that you may later regret. If you are meeting anyone who tends to have a more sensitive side to their nature, just be mindful of how easy it is to say the wrong thing. You may talk to a sibling too today.

A sharp lift in the number of players testing positive to recreational drugs has prompted the AFL to revamp its illicit drugs policy. A record number of 26 positive tests for illicit drugs were recorded in 2012, with two of them concerning a player testing positive for a second time. All but one of the positives were for stimulants such as cocaine, ecstasy and methamphetamines, with cocaine topping the list. A similar number of players preempted a potential positive test by self-reporting illicit drugs use, but they were not included in the figures. AFL chief executive Andrew Demetriou admitted the number of

2011, having played in all 61 games. His re-signing comes on the back of last weekâ€™s announcement winger Manu Vatuvei had penned a new two-year deal with the club and the capture of second-rower Jayson Bukuya from Cronulla on a two-year contract.
â€œItâ€™s a good sign to have Feleti secured for another three years and to have Jayson coming over as well,â€? Warriors general manager football operations Dean Bell said. â€œWe know there are challenges securing players out of Australia at times but Feleti and Jayson have
shown there are players who are really keen to come to our club and be a part of the great things we have to offer. The Warriors are still chasing Wigan and England fullback Sam Tomkins, who is regarded as the best player in the UK Super - APNZ League.
positives was disappointing. â€œThere was a significant and concerning increase in detections last year,â€? said Demetriou. â€œWe saw 26 failed tests compared with six the year before. â€œThe increase is obviously disappointing but it reinforces the need for us to be vigilant and for a medical model that tests players all year around and allows for early intervention.â€? The 1979 tests taken last year was higher than in any of the previous seven years of the policy. It produced a huge increase from the six positives from 1489 tests recorded in 2011.
â€œWeâ€™re pleased that we did significantly more target testing,â€? said Demetriou. â€œWeâ€™re also pleased that the medical officers also targeted recovery sessions. Weâ€™re also aware there has been a significant increase in the availability of illicit drugs across the community. â€œWhat the policy has allowed us to do is identify more players who have had other problems and allowed the medical officers to intervene and shift behaviour.â€? A further increase in target testing was one of several proposed amendments to the policy announced on yesterday. Other changes included: â€˘ Players will now only be able to
self-report illicit drug use once in their AFL career, closing a potential loophole. â€˘ There will be an increase in hair testing during the off-season, when there is an increased risk of illicit drug use. â€˘ Clubs will be able to request target testing of their players. Collingwood chief executive Gary Pert believed it would fall to club CEOs to contact the AFL medical officers if they had concerns regarding the behaviour of individual players. Late last year, Pert warned of â€œvolcanic behaviourâ€? by some footballers during the off-season. - AAP

Feleti Mateo has signed a new three-year deal with the Warriors that will see the second-rower remain at the club until the end of 2016. The 29-year-old, who plays his 150th NRL game against Penrith on Saturday night, had been off contract at the end of the season and had been in lengthy talks with the club about staying. He had also been a target of the Dragons, who have plenty of cash to spend after having offloaded five-eighth Jamie Soward to the Panthers, but has decided to recommit to the Warriors. He said it wasnâ€™t an easy, especially as his wife is expecting the coupleâ€™s first child in September, and had talked about his desire to return to Australia to be closer to family. â€œThere were other offers but thereâ€™s so much more I want to achieve with the team and the coaching staff at the Warriors,â€? he said. â€œMaking the move to this club has helped me to develop as a player and I know thereâ€™s a lot more room for improvement, too. Iâ€™ve also grown as a person since joining the club. â€œMy wife Michelle and I have our first baby due in September and that made the decision extremely difficult but Iâ€™m really excited about our future here. â€œWeâ€™ve got a great group of players and thereâ€™s loads of tremendous young talent coming through. Iâ€™d also like to play a leadership role in their development. â€œI like what [coach] Matt [Elliott] has put in place, the staff he has around him and the plans he has. This is a great club and I want to make a big contribution to our future.â€? Mateo has been an ever-present in the Warriors side since his arrival in
Superstar Benji Marshall
Wests Tigers coach Mick Potter has made it clear he wants superstar Benji Marshall to remain at the NRL club and he is confident the superstar wants to stay despite talk of a rift between the pair. Potter made the sensational call to dump Marshall to the bench earlier this week for tonightâ€™s clash with competition leaders South Sydney at ANZ Stadium. Marshall will be off contract at the end of next year and his management team are believed to be in talks
with the Tigers over a reported $4 million extension that would keep him at the club until the end of the 2017. â€œI think Benji wants to ultimately stay at the Tigers for the rest of his career,â€? Potter said. â€œI want him to and I think quite a lot of other people do as well.â€? The 28-year-oldâ€™s demotion prompted speculation Marshall and Potter had had a falling out and that could jeopardise the five-eighthâ€™s chances of remaining at the club.
â€œBenji wasnâ€™t happy. A player of his calibre, you donâ€™t expect to be happy with being on the bench. I donâ€™t expect for him to be there too long,â€? Potter said. â€œWeâ€™re certainly not best of friends this week at the moment. â€œBut Iâ€™m comfortable with that. I donâ€™t have to be best friends with the players.â€? The Tigers have lost a club record-equalling six consecutive games going into the clash with the Rabbitohs. - AAP
Miami Heat beat Ferdinand calls time on England career Bulls to advance to NBA semi-finals The Miami Heat advanced to the NBA semi-finals by capping a fourgame winning streak with a 94-91 victory over the Chicago Bulls yesterday despite blowing an 18-point lead. LeBron James led with 23 points and eight assists, Dwyane Wade played through a nagging knee injury to finish with 18 points and six assists and Chris Bosh had 12 points and seven rebounds for the Heat. James also had seven rebounds for the Heat who reached their third straight Eastern Conference final series. Miami won four straight games against the under-manned Bulls after dropping the opener at home. â€œWe knew right from the very beginning of this series that we would have to earn everything and that proved to be true,â€? said Miami coach Erik Spoelstra. The injury-plagued Bulls had two chances in the final seconds to tie it, but Nate Robinson and Jimmy Butler both missed from beyond the arc. Carlos Boozer finished with a gamehigh 26 points and 14 rebounds while Robinson had 21 points and Butler 19 for the Bulls, who played the entire series without Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich. The have been decimated by injuries. Derrick Rose hasnâ€™t played since
he tore his ACL in the first playoff game last season. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau blamed the loss on the injuries. â€œRight now, health,â€? he said when asked what the difference in the series was. â€œThatâ€™s the biggest thing. But they are a great team and you have to give them credit. â€œThey are not going to beat themselves. You have to beat them. You have to play well for 48 minutes.â€? Thibodeau said he had no regrets about not trying to bring Rose back for the series. â€œIf we were going to make a mistake, we wanted to make the mistake on the side of caution,â€? he said. Miamiâ€™s Wade has been plagued by knee troubles of late and only managed six points in game four. He rebounded on Wednesday going seven-of-13 from the field and a perfect four-of-four from the foul line in the win. â€œHe finds a way to make big time plays. Itâ€™s great to see him respond like that,â€? Spoelstra said. The Heat will face the Indiana Pacers or the New York Knicks in the semis. The Pacers lead that series 3-1 with game five set for Thursday at Madison Square Garden. - AFP
Rio Ferdinand announced yesterday that he was calling time on his England career to concentrate on his club duties at Manchester United. The 34-year-old centre-half won 81 caps in an international career that took him to three World Cups. Ferdinand had informed England manager Roy Hodgson of his decision, and said in a statement: â€œAfter a great deal of thought, I have decided the time is right for me to retire from international football. â€œAt the age of 34, I feel it is right for me to stand aside and let the younger players come through, which allows me to concentrate on my club career. â€œThe team looks in great shape and there is an influx of young, talented players coming through the ranks which bodes well for the future.â€? Ferdinand became Englandâ€™s youngest ever defender when he made his debut against Cameroon at Wembley in 1997, a week after his 19th birthday. The south Londoner has not played for England since featuring against Switzerland in June 2011. He was surprisingly recalled into the national squad in March by Hodgson after almost two years out of the England fold but then declined the opportunity, instead travelling to Qatar as a television pundit citing fitness concerns.
Rio Ferdinand That decision was widely interpreted as a snub to Hodgson, who had left him out of the Euro 2012 squad.
