Meningitis teen in hospital A Wanganui teenager is in a stable condition in Wanganui Hospital with bacterial meningitis. The girl, a pupil at Wanganui Collegiate School, was admitted to hospital on Thursday with the first case of meningococcal disease in the Whanganui region this year. She was in a serious condition yesterday morning, but by midafternoon her condition had improved to stable. Whanganui medical officer of health, Patrick O’Connor, said in response to the girl’s illness, nine close contacts in Wanganui were given antibiotics, and Taranaki Public Health gave antibiotics to a further 10 contacts in Hawera yesterday.

Breakers terrorise It looked like a mismatch on paper and that proved true in practice - the sleeping giant that was the Breakers offence is well and truly awake. The league-leading Breakers (7-1) destroyed the winless Townsville Crocs (0-9) with ruthless efficiency last night at Vector Arena, winning their seventh straight game 93-63.



The winning streak is now the secondhighest in franchise history and, for the first time since their second ever game, the Breakers now have an overall winning record. It was their 150th all-time victory, to go with 149 losses, and it’s doubtful many of the preceding 298 games were as straightforward as last night’s.

Demand will determine new bridge timeframe By Sue Newman It will be community demand that drives the timing of a second bridge across the Ashburton River, says Ashburton District Council operations manager Rob Rouse. The overwhelming community feedback the council received on its second bridge route options provided good information for the council, he said, and this would now be used by the council as part of its decision-making process. With the community feedback now processed, the council would continue to move forward with its land designation process, on the same timeframe it had previously stated – building the bridge in 2025/2026, Mr Rouse said. “At the end of the day it will be the community that drives this and brings the project forward, as opposed to state highway issues being the driver. If Tinwald access issues get worse, the council may decide to bring it forward, if they don’t they may decide to push it out.” There were a number of factors that would have an as yet, unknown impact on traffic flows, such as the growth of the Ashburton Business Estate, the new sports stadium and aquatic centre and the new art gallery and museum, he said. The construction of a second bridge across the river was very much a locally driven pro-

ject. The New Zealand Transport Agency was not involved in traffic movement on local roads; its interest was only in how those roads impacted on highway traffic, Mr Rouse said. “Our driver is always community focused. We need to make sure that when the bridge is built, if it is built, it is built at the right time.” More than 500 people responded to the council’s request for feedback on its bridge route options, with the majority saying the route the council preferred – Chalmers Avenue and either a rural or urban road east of Tinwald – was not their choice. The weight of community opinion for a second bridge was for Melcombe Street to be used or for a ring road or bypass to be built. The bypass option would not solve local traffic issues, Mr Rouse said, because it was human nature to take the shortest route between two points. “A bypass is intended to bypass an urban area. The issues and objectives we’re trying to meet are urban focused.” The council has committed to making a final decision on the route by the end of the year so it can move ahead with an application to designate land to protect it for the future. Once this application is made, the community will have several opportunities for further comment. • See community feedback analysis, P6

Council boss will step down in 2013 By Sam Morton The council’s top boss won’t reapply for his position next term as his job goes on the market. Ashburton District Council chief executive Brian Lester has Brian shocked his fellow ranks at council by announcing he will not seek the top job next September. The decision was made after councillors voted against reappointing Mr Lester for a further two years – ending Mr Lester’s role after more than a decade at the top. The role of chief executive runs for five years with the option of a two-year extension, should councillors agree to extend the term. It is understood councillors wanted to advertise the posi-

tion and opted not to automatically reappoint Mr Lester – forcing him to reapply for the position next year. However, Mr Lester has revealed he doesn’t approve of the process and therefore would not put his hat back in the ring. Lester Mayor Angus McKay said yesterday the decision was a council employment issue and refused to be drawn on the matter. “Council made a decision not to exercise the twoyear extension and therefore it is up to Mr Lester what he chooses to do. “He has made a personal decision and that’s his choice, I can’t say any more on this,” Mr McKay said. Mr Lester will leave his post as council CEO next September. He was unavailable for comment yesterday.

Police eliminate foul play at fatal fire scene By Sam Morton

Photo Kirsty Graham 161112-KG_015

Tragic scene: Specialist fire investigators Mark Thomas (left) and Graham Davies, both of Christchurch, investigate the scene on Lagmhor Road yesterday. The fold-out campbed, pictured, is understood to have been the man’s bed, located near the starting point of the fire. suspicious fire and the death has now been referred to the coroner. “Ashburton Police are now liaising with the affected family and notifying the next of kin, before the name will be released,” Mr Murray said. The name is expected to be released by police later today. Chief fire officer Alan Burgess, of Ashburton, said the building

wasn’t well ablaze on arrival. Firefighters quickly put the fire out and the man’s body was immediately removed. “It was quite a confined fire with slow, smoldering smoke . . . it was quickly put out. “The workshop had some living quarters on the end of it – and something has gone wrong in that part of the shed,” Mr Burgess said.

Kites set for fight contest By Sam Morton It was kite carnage above the skies of Lake Hood on Thursday night, as more than 20 people practised their kite flying techniques in preparation for Flight 4 Life next week. The kite flying extravaganza has attracted overwhelm-

ing interest from overseas and next Saturday more than 80 people will battle it out for top honour – with all funds raised going to kids’ charity CanTeen. The event, spearheaded by kite designer Simon Chisnall, is expected to draw large crowds and produce a masterpiece display – with the elite

handlers among the bunch looking to stamp their class. The participants, including local business representatives, will use a Japanese fighting Rokkaku kite in a bid to knock each other out of the sky. Action kicks off at Lake Hood on Saturday, November 24, with the following day set down as a rain alternative.

At the scene yesterday, a green fold-out camp-bed had been heavily smoke damaged and the canvas significantly torn. A nearby resident told the Guardian the man had been living at the workshop – understood to be owned by the deceased’s family. The death has now been referred to the coroner.

Fire investigators are still looking into the death of a 56-year-old man who died in tragic circumstances after a fire broke out in his Tinwald workshop early yesterday. The Tinwald man, understood to have been an engineer, was pulled from the Lagmhor Road building just after 6am. It is believed an electrical fault in the man’s living quarters, attached to the workshop, may have started the fire - but fire investigators are yet to rule the cause. Specialist fire investigator Graham Davies, of Christchurch, who was at the scene yesterday, said his investigation had revealed two possible options. “I’m pretty happy I know what it (the cause) is, but at this stage I need to completely rule out one of the options and seek some expert advice,” he said. “I believe it could be an electrical fault, but at this point I have a few more inquiries to make before I can fully commit to the cause of this fire.” Mr Davies said the fire started around the bed area, but it was not known if the man was asleep at the time of the incident. Detective Sergeant Dylan Murray, of Timaru CIB, said police had ruled out any foul play or suspicious circumstances surrounding the death. “We’re happy that it’s not a

Support for dead woman’s family Heartfelt messages have been sent to the family of a Wellington mother of two, murdered at her home on Thursday, after a man appeared in court yesterday charged with her murder. Amanda Dawn Taufale, 33, died at her home on Sunrise Boulevard, Tawa shortly before 8am. Police charged Ernest Smith with her murder after earlier appealing for public help to find him. He appeared in Porirua District Court yesterday and was remanded in custody until December 7. Ms Taufale lived with her 15-year-old son Liam, who she had with separated husband David Taufale, and a six-monthold baby. Police said both children were at home at the time of what police described as “a violent death”. Ms Taufale’s mother-in-law, Sera Taufale, said her grandson Liam had found his mother. The news of her death had come as a shock. “When the detective told me that sad thing happened, I felt like screaming my head off,” Mrs Taufale said. Police said more than 70 people had been spoken to when police canvassed train commuters at the Takapu Railway Station in Tawa. A tribute Facebook page for Ms Taufale had gained more than 250 followers within hours of it being created, and people continued to send their love to Ms Taufale’s family. Prue Elwood said her thoughts went out to all the family. And Marlene Tagata said Ms Taufale would never be forgotten. “Love and thoughts to the taufale family. prayers and thoughts for u all ... love u taufale family. xxx” The officer in charge of the homicide investigation, Detective Senior Sergeant Mike Oxnam, said the arrest would come as a relief to Ms Taufale’s family. “The investigation team is still working hard to understand the exact events leading up to Amanda’s death.”  - APNZ

Dux unable to use scholarships By Susan Sandys Mount Hutt College’s 2012 dux is disappointed she is unable to use $10,000 worth of university scholarships she received at prizegiving last week. Toni Wilson received a $5000 University of Canterbury scholarship and a $5000 University of Otago scholarship as part of her dux prizes. She will not be able to use either of them as she had already enrolled at Victoria University, where she will undertake a Bachelor of Commerce. Her mother Tania Wilson said it had been great to receive scholarships of such a high value. The family were still getting over the excitement of Toni being named dux, but “it sort of pops the bubble” to find that those scholarships were redundant in Toni’s case. Mount Hutt College principal John Schreurs said universities offered the dux

scholarships at schools around the South Island as a “marketing exercise” to attract the highest achieving and hardest working students. “They want the crème de la crème, they are looking at ways of attracting people with those scholarships,” he said. After hearing of Toni’s situation he had talked to Victoria University, and found it did not offer dux scholarships. However it offered a similar sum of money in excellence endorsements, but these had to be applied for by October 1. Toni may well have missed out this round, but there would be a second round in which she could apply in March. “Every student should be looking at the websites of the university they are going to and looking for scholarships which may be relevant,” Mr Schreurs said. He said universities rarely allocated all their scholarships, and there were some available that students may be unaware of.

Recyling efforts bring reward By Myles Hume New Zealand’s green image is in the spotlight this week, and when it comes to the younger generation doing their part, Ashburton already has it sorted. Mid Canterbury youngsters are some of the biggest recyclers in the country, with 45 schools and preschools in the district recycling enough to fill 60 20ft shipping containers in the past four years. It comes during New Zealand Recycling Week where the Paper4trees scheme, which rewards schools who recycle with native plants, have praised local schools for the work they do to preserve the environment. Hampstead School put out up to 10 bins of recycling a week. With schools being some of the biggest consumers of paper, principal Peter Melrose said it was important his school kept on top of recycling. “Waste reduction has a positive outcome in our budget because we are not having to pay for waste to be taken away, so being able to recycle and get it taken away is a real bonus for us,” Mr Melrose said. The Paper4trees scheme gave the children extra incentive. “Doing the good work we get some trees and shrubs back and we get to put them in the garden. It’s a win-win situation and kids are getting the message about waste

Hampstead School pupil Brooke Bennetts, 8, plants one of the numerous plants donated to her school by Paper4trees which rewards schools with shrubs for being keen recyclers. reduction.” Longbeach School principal Neil Simons said recycling was deeply embedded in his pupils, who even had the confidence to keep those slack recyclers in line. “It’s just second nature to them now and the kids

Jesus movie still on By Andrew Ashton A $180 million movie about the life of Jesus Christ could still go ahead, if resource consents for sets are approved. Two movie sets built at Elephant Rocks, near Duntroon, and Lake Benmore have been gathering moss for four years, after South Vineyard Ltd, the film company behind the planned Kingdom Come movie, had trouble financing the epic. However, company solicitor Stephen Brown said applications to extend resource consents for the sets had been filed with the Waitaki District Council, and were going through the approval process.

“The directors still fully intend to complete the movie using that set. There have obviously been difficulties which they are looking to overcome, and they have applied to renew their consents.” Although no filming schedule had been drawn up if consents were approved, filming could start relatively quickly. Mr Brown declined to confirm if funding for the movie was in place. A set of 100 facades and a jetty to be built at the Falstone reserve to represent the Galilee village of Capernaum and a smaller set at Elephant Rocks, were granted 12-month resource consents in April 2008. But both sets would have to be demolished if council declines a resource consent extension.  - APNZ

New bridge What’s your take?

Improving traffic flows through Ashburton has been on the Ashburton District Council’s agenda for several years. One of the solutions the council is pursuing is to build a second bridge across the Ashburton River. The problem with this solution is finding a route that residents find acceptable. Reporter SUE NEWMAN takes a look at the messages the community’s feedback on the project have delivered to council.


hen the Ashburton District Council came out with its preferred route options for a second bridge across the Ashburton River, it generated a groundswell of community discontent. The second bridge project has been on the council’s drawing board for several years and it was first to abort its first choice route, taking traffic down Chalmers Avenue and Grove Street, after the proposal generated huge community outrage. It came up with two alternatives, both using Chalmers Avenue but this time the route involved creating a new road east of Grove Street or further east of Grove Street. They were tagged the urban or rural options. It held open days to explain the

routes, met in closed door sessions with stakeholders who may have been affected and land owners who most likely would be affected, and it called for public input. That resulted in 514 general feedback forms being completed, with more comments coming from interest groups and stakeholders. The preferred route options were chosen from a shortlist that included outer and inner bypass options, four laning the existing state highway bridge, installing traffic signals at Archibald Street and using Melcombe Street. The council used consultants to carry out the research and pull the project together and it carried out a multi-criteria assessment to identify its final route options. This measured each option against a raft

of criteria covering safety, cost and social impact. The two east Tinwald options scored highest. The two routes through Tinwald could potentially affect 33 landowners. Feedback on the route options showed a clear split between the number of respondents who thought a second bridge would make travel between Tinwald and Ashburton faster and safer. When it came to preferred options for the bridge route, the council struck out, with just 12 per cent of respondents opting for either of its choices. More than 66 per cent said they either didn’t want those options or that they preferred one of the other options. There was a high level of concern over the effect the bridge route

would have on property values and the increase in traffic volumes on Chalmers Avenue. Some people were concerned the new route would act as a highway bypass down residential streets. The council intends to make a decision on the bridge route by the end of this year and will apply for land designation to protect the route by mid 2013. There will be a round of public consultation, comments and submissions once the application for designation is made. A hearing is likely to be held late next year and once the designation is in place, the bridge route will be protected and the land within that route can be acquired by the council. The bridge is unlikely to be built for at least 15 years.


here was significant support for three alternative routes – West Street-Melcombe Street, 20 per cent; four land State Highway 1 and extend the existing bridge, 7.4 per cent; an eastern ring road or rural by pass, 21.2 per cent.

West Street – Melcombe Street

Two options had previously been considered here, one including a level crossing to link the existing highway south of Tinwald and the other a rail overpass. Both scored poorly on a multi-criteria assessment undertaken by the council’s consultants on the following grounds: – Issues around railway level crossings along the route – Significant increases in traffic flows on other roads with changed roading hierarchy – Land would be required from 21 properties for the level crossing option and from 14 for the overpass option. – State highway traffic would be moved significantly closer to approximately 60 homes on Melcombe Street – The estimated costs are $36 million to $43 million for the level crossing option and $38 to $46 million for the overpass – There would be negative impacts on Tinwald business due to dis-

placing state highway through traffic and on West Street businesses because of a reluctance of southbound traffic to stop and cross four lanes.

Four lane state highway one and extend the existing bridge

This option also received a low score in the multi criteria assessment. The curves required for a four lane railway crossing at East and

West streets would require the acquisition of several high value commercial properties on both sides of the railway. This was considered uneconomic.

A rail overpass

A rail overpass was considered but the six metre walls required were considered to reduce amenity and personal safety levels. A rail overpass would result

President toasts top show By Sam Morton Semi-retired Dromore farmer Richard Lemon has a big smile across his face. Slouching back in his chair, he shrugs a huge sigh of relief and has rightly earned a dry whisky or two. And who can blame him? Mr Lemon is celebrating the enormous success of New Zealand’s biggest agricultural and pastoral show, after hosting more than 100,000 people through the gates at the 150th Canterbury A&P Show this week. The Mid Canterbury man, who also celebrated his birthday on Thursday, has completed his one term as show president and along the way has enjoyed a large number of highlights throughout the show. On the third and final day yesterday, thousands of people piled in to have a look around the show and most hoped to catch a glimpse of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, who visited the show in the afternoon. The royal couple was in Christchurch as one of their final destinations in New Zealand for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations – and the Prince of Wales paid tribute to Canterbury’s

strength and dignity after the earthquakes. Gridlocked carparks, thousands of animals, live music and rural trade exhibits everywhere you turned – it was clear the show was buzzing and it was clear the event had been

an outstanding success. But despite being the top boss of the show, Mr Lemon was quick to spread the praise through the ranks – thanking hundreds of volunteers and a dedicated committee. “It’s not just me pulling the

strings here and putting this show together – we are talking a committee of 24 and more than 200 volunteers – it is a mammoth task,” he said. “It’s been estimated at about 22 to 24,000 voluntary man hours to put this show on, so that really is a terrific commitment and outstanding dedication. “It’s their way of showing our urban counterparts what we can achieve,” Mr Lemon said. For Mr Lemon, who was first elected on to the show committee in 1990, the A&P Show has always been a major part of his family’s history. Mr Lemon recited an excerpt from this year’s unique 150th celebratory book – recalling the first show being held in Shepherds Bush and then a year later in Ashburton – before moving to Sydenham Park. “The show has just grown from strength to strength every year and becomes part of every generation – the show will live on for many generations after us and Mid Canterbury will continue to play a significant part in it,” he said. “The book encompasses people’s involvement in the show and is a great coffee table read.” He was delighted by the weather and the support of this year’s show, pointing out the weather was crucial to the show’s success. “We have to remember this show makes in excess of $2 million, so it’s a business and a large scale one at that. “However, it’s a family show and

to bring your urban counterparts in for the day, the weather has to be just right. “If it’s too hot they go to the beach, if it’s warm then that’s just enough, but if it is too cold then they all pack into the malls. “We have been very lucky with the weather and there has been some very positive talk around the show and about this year’s competitions and exhibits, which is fantastic,” Mr Lemon said. And as one show closed, another one gets underway. In fact, it won’t be long before preparations for the 151st show start. “As soon as one show winds down, you can be sure another one is being planned,” Mr Lemon said. “It’s a huge job and one that really does take most of the year in order to host a show of this size, it’s a business that operates all year round in terms of planning and organising.” So let’s join Mr Lemon and his team and raise a glass to the 150th Canterbury A&P Show.

Things heat up at Tinwald Pool When the Tinwald Pool opens for the season on November 25 it will have a new look, but best of all, it will have warm water. And that opening will be celebrated with the help of New Zealand’s multi-medal winning para-Olympian, Sophie Pascoe. The Tinwald Domain Board has masterminded the plan to upgrade the pool and while the solar panel heating system took longer than anticipated to install, board chair Alistair Wing

said work will be well completed by opening day. With the solar-heating system installed, Mr Wing said the pool will maintain a constant temperature of between 25 and 26°C making it a much more viable option for swimmers. It will continue to be managed by the Ashburton Community Pool. The pool opening has been timed to coincide with the Tinwald Christmas Festival and will take place at 2.30pm.

Starship marks 21st birthday New Zealand’s largest children’s hospital celebrated its 21st anniversary yesterday. A special afternoon tea was held at Starship Children’s Hospital in Auckland to celebrate the event. The purpose-built children’s hospital was one of the first of its kind built in New Zealand, and is the largest in the country. The hospital was first proposed in 1981, and the Government agreed to fund its construction in 1988. It was completed on 18 November, 1991. Dr Elizabeth Segedin, who was MC for the event, described the hospital as an emerging adolescent. “It’s not per-

fect, but it’s unstoppable.” Former patient Campbell MacKenzie, 13, spent the first few weeks of his life at the hospital and sang happy birthday at the event. “I had a condition - basically I couldn’t eat or breathe properly - and Starship fixed it. “I don’t actually remember much of it, but from what Mum and Dad told me Starship fixed my problem.” Mr MacKenzie said he decided he wanted to give something back to the hospital a couple of years ago, and has been putting his musical talents to use my busking on the streets of Auckland

to raise money for the hospital. He estimated he has raised about $3500 for the hospital through his busking, which he does predominantly during NZ Music Month. “I just go out there with my guitar and my sign, and hand it [the money] in at the end of the month.” Veteran nurse Elizabeth Hunter, known to all as “Tizzle” said she had been at the hospital since it was first built. Ms Hunter said she worked part-time at the hospital while she had children of her own, and is still working there now - as a staff nurse in the day - APNZ stay unit.

uy Fawkes’ night has come and gone. The eager queues to buy fireworks have disappeared and cats and dogs can rest easy for another year. The event has become one of our longeststanding celebrations. It is now over 400 years since an Act of Parliament in England decreed that the 5th of November should be a day (or night) of celebration. That celebration was to commemorate a particular event in the life of the nation. Some celebrations are observed annually and others more often. The church celebrates every week. She does so in a general sense and, depending on the branch of the church, at varying frequencies in a particular sense in the observance of Communion or Eucharist or Lord’s supper as it may be called. This celebration remembers a particular event in the life of the world. Many people know about Guy Fawkes’ night – after all, it is hard to avoid the advertising of fireworks or perhaps the warnings about their improper use. A number of places hold large public displays with spectacular light shows. Countless thousands gather with families and friends for a scaled down version in their own backyard. Perhaps many, even the majority, might be hard pressed to explain just what the circumstances were that led to the celebration in the first place. Back in 1605 a man name Guy Fawkes was discovered guarding explosives that been place under the House of Lords in England. The plot was to assassinate King James I. The following year, Parliament passed the Observance of 5th November Act 1605 at the proposal of Edward Montagu. Next time you wave a sparkler, remember it is all because of Ted’s bright idea so long ago. I wonder if it might be similar with many regarding the weekly celebration of Christians. Knowledge of the original event may be sketchy among many. It is all about God coming to us. Coming to us Himself, yet also as one of us. Jesus – fully human and fully God, came to bring the fullness of life to us. In spite of that, he was put to death by those who refused to accept his message. Yet that death was a triumph and not a tragedy. Through his death, giving himself up as a sacrifice, he bridged the gap between a holy God and us sinners. More wonderful still, he rose from the dead confirming that the sacrifice was effective and so the good news began to spread. Namely, all who put their trust in Jesus have begun to enjoy eternal life. Your appreciation of a celebration is enhanced by knowing something about the original event. If you ever wondered what it was those folk were doing on a Sunday morning – they are celebrating, in all sorts of styles and numbers and places. They are celebrating that original event which resulted in their freedom and acceptance before God. That is something well worth celebrating. Annual fireworks displays are something quite impressive but they pale into insignificance compared with what Christians celebrate each week. After all, Guy Fawkes is dead and gone. Jesus Christ is alive and present. If it isn’t your custom, why not drop in and find out some more about what Christians celebrate week by week. By Rev. David Bayne of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church

Pressure rises at Ruapehu encing signs of elevated unrest above known background levels. Mr Key said he was advised a few days ago there was some movement and an increase in temperature on the mountain. “I haven’t had any advice today on that issue but they did alert me a couple of days ago it might be an issue,” he said. GNS said small earthquakes have been occurring about 5km beneath the summit area of Ruapehu since late October, but these may not be directly related to the high temperatures beneath Crater Lake because the heat is much deeper. A build-up of pressure beneath Crater Lake is thought to have caused the 2007 eruption and a smaller eruption in 2006. Mt Tongariro burst into activity in August this year, when the Te Maari Crater erupted. The eruption caused a landslide which flowed 2km down the mountain and blocked three streams, creating a dam in one of them. The dam broke last month, sending a lahar down the moun- APNZ tain.

Prime Minister John Key says he was made aware a few days ago that there was increased activity on Mt Ruapehu. GNS Science revealed today (Fri) the likelihood of the volcano erupting over the next few weeks had increased. Duty volcanologist Steven Sherburn said changes in measurements over the last few weeks indicated eruptions are “more likely over the next weeks to months”. “We’re monitoring Ruapehu closely, but it often doesn’t give any immediate warning that it’s going to erupt,” Dr Sherburn said. “We think that the temperature a few hundred metres beneath Crater Lake is about 800 degrees Celsius, but the lake itself is only about 20 degrees Celsius. “This suggests the vent is partly blocked, which may be leading to a pressure buildup beneath Crater Lake. A sudden release of the pressure may lead to an eruption.” As a result, the Aviation Colour Code has increased from Green to Yellow. Code Yellow indicates a volcano is experi-

Victim still silent A mysterious assault on a nine-year-old Timaru schoolboy is no closer to being solved, as police have few leads and a victim who remains speechless. Police said at 4pm Thursday the Oceanview Heights Primary school student was found by a member of the public in a distressed condition with visible injuries. He was taken to Timaru Hospital, with injuries considered not to be life-threatening. Timaru police are appealing to the public for further information, because the boy is not speaking about the attack. They are seeking information on his movements after he left the school around 3.15pm,

up to the time he was located 45 minutes later. Anyone with information about vehicles parked around Holme Station Bridge yesterday afternoon, or any suspicious behaviour around the boy’s school should contact Timaru police. He was wearing a school uniform from Oceanview Heights, which consisted of a dark blue polar fleece, dark blue shorts and a teal green polo shirt. The boy is described as being dark in complexion, of slim build, approximately 30 kgs with dark hair. He is nine years old but is considered small for his age, and police say his height is more that of a six- or seven- APNZ year-old.

The internationally recognised project provides an opportunity for young people aged five to 18 to view and purchase original contemporary artwork. The exclusive lithographs are a fraction of the normal price. It is the intention of the artist that the works will become the exclusive property of the purchaser, therefore no adults are allowed in the exhibition space to influence the decision of the young person. Gallery publicity officer Lucy Sharp said there were 75 visitors, and 49 Muka prints were sold. It was Muka’s 26th year exhibiting. “Some children in the district have built up quite a collection over the years,” Ms Sharp said. Photo Kirsty Graham 141112-KG_016

Comment Our view

The council has been listening By Coen Lammers editor


es, you read it correctly. The council has listened to its citizens and decided to change the District Plan to let commonsense prevail. The men and women around the council table have copped a lot of flack this past year and most of the criticism centred on their inability to communicate and respond to the sentiments in the community. The Guardian has been quick to point out the council’s shortcomings, so we now also want to be the first to congratulate the elected representatives for acting on fresh arguments and evidence. For once, the consultation process actually delivered some tangible results and was far more than the usual lipservice from local or national government officials that frustrated citizens have come to expect. The District Plan was released over two years ago in April 2010 and triggered an avalanche of 700 public submissions. Poor councillor Robin Kilworth and her panel colleagues had to sit through 38 hearings, but they clearly did not doze off. The panel heard fired-up locals who had seen their life savings disappear with the stroke of a pen. In the new District Plan, council planners had shrunk the boundaries of the Rural A zone where landowners are allowed to subdivide into 8ha sections. Many owners who had invested in this area with the intention to subdivide as part of their retirement fund, suddenly found themselves in Rural B zone, which is tagged for agricultural use and where the sections have to be a minimum of 50ha. This would have stopped them from subdividing their land for the intended use and collect from their investment. No wonder some presentations during the hearings were heartfelt, their livelihood or retirements were on the line. Fortunately, Cr Kilworth and her colleagues were impressed by the submissions and reacted appropriately. Far too often, local and national government bodies run roughshod over their constituents, so this latest move has been a nice example of how to regain some trust among your citizens. Education Minister Hekia Parata could take some lessons from the Ashburton council panel as she starts analysing her consultation meetings with the Christchurch schools that are set to merge or close down against all commonsense and without the correct information.


Friday night fun at the arcade

ast weekend I visited Auckland, city of sails and signs and sounds. Come Friday night, we headed for that holy grail of gaudiness and overstimulation: The Arcade. No matter what your favourite colour there is a game to match, complete with looped theme tune and special effects lighting. From Dance Dance Revolution to Air Hockey and Photo Booth, this parody of city life provided the colour and bustle and crowds and sensory overload that I have missed. Growing up, such busy-ness was always just background noise – something that I was not consciously aware of but was nonetheless slightly comforting. It was not until spending time away from the bright lights and street corner preachers of Queen Street that I realised how much I had been screening out. Impromptu street theatre? Ice cream parlour karaoke? How did I not notice these before? Ashburton, with a smaller population, has less on the radar, but there are still entertainment options, many of which you would never get in the city. Take

Feature In 2009 Ashburton’s Craig Hansen sailed across the Sahara in a kite buggy, an adventure that is about to hit New Zealand television screens. Reporter JONATHAN LEASK caught up with Hansen about the documentary. A pair of boots lie discarded near a buggy as it was the same to walk in bare feet as it was in sand-soaked shoes.

Ashburton kite man adventurer Craig Hansen is excited about the documentary release of his Mad Way South adventure across the Sahara while he is in the midst of planning his next big kite buggy journey.


raig’s Hansen’s kite buggy adventure, The Mad Way South, has been made into a movie. Hansen and multiple Coast to Coast winner Steve Gurney teamed up to cross the Sahara desert in kite buggies in 2009 with all the ups and downs, highs and lows recorded by an accompanying film crew. “I think they had about 120 hours of footage which has been turned into a one-hour documentary,” Hansen said.

The one-hour documentary has been picked up by the Discovery Channel which plans to screen it, but has yet to announce a date. The documentary already had its premiere two weeks ago in Brisbane. “It was a chance for all of the lads that had been out in the desert and the doco’s stakeholders to get a glimpse of the finished product.” Almost four years on and the documentary is set to

be released in New Zealand, Hansen is planning his next Mad Way journey. “We are currently planning Mad Way Mongolia where we will cross Mongolia east to west, Russia to China, in the kite buggies. “This time we will be doing it unassisted so without the support vehicles we will have to be careful as we have to carry our own gear.” “We set ourselves a goal of one year to plan and at this

stage we have nine months to go, looking at AugustSeptember next year which is when the weather conditions will be most suitable.” With the plans for his next adventure well under way, the pending release of the documentary is bringing back memories of the first adventure. “It was a month-long journey and was quite the adventure.” What started out as a race between Australian and New

The one goal we weren’t able to reach was to raise the $100,000 figure charity (SHE rescue homes in Cambodia), but three years on the figure is still rising towards the target.” Although the fundraising goal is an ongoing effort, in 2009 they were the first people to achieve a wind-powered

trans-Saharan crossing and their lengthy journey meant they broke the longest kite buggy trip doubling the previous record of 1000km by travelling 2200km They fell just short their target of 2500km, the distance from Morocco to Dakar, after the expedition had to be cut short due to a change in the seasons which brought heavy rain. They had also planned an attempt on the record for the

most travel in a 24-hour period, set at 400km, but unfortunately the most they managed was just over 200km as Hansen said they never found the right conditions for a full 24 hours. “We could have gone round and round in circles if we really wanted to but we needed to push on to the finish.” The desert conditions were highly volatile, going from battling strong winds to without a breath of wind to power the


kite buggies in a matter of minutes, but wind-powered travel comes with its obstacles. “For centuries people used wind power to travel the world over oceans. Using wind power to cross land has a lot more hazards,” Hansen said in 2009. “We had to deal with trees, rocks, the sand, animals and some intense desert conditions.” All of the action and adventure is in the documen-

tary which Hansen hopes does some good. “Hopefully it can inspire a few people and maybe get a few kids off the couch and getting outside.” Some special kite lovers will get a special screening of the doco after next weekend’s Flight for Life kite event at Lake Hood, but Hansen is waiting on the confirmation of an air date from the Discovery channel to organise a public premiere screening.

Pick wisely for the best

By Rachel Vogan


here is no doubt about it– growing and picking your own flowers is a total joy. Wandering around the garden with secateurs in hand, gathering blooms for a bouquet or posy, is a satisfying experience. The trick to success is, as always in gardening, preparation. Remember to feed the soil so it can reward you with stunning floral displays. Other factors to ensure a blooming success are: choosing flower varieties that suit your garden, climate and the amount of time you have available.

from, I suggest planting floribunda roses. These produce more flowers than the hybrid tea, formal-looking types. This means once you have picked a few stems there is still something left in the garden to enjoy as well. 9. Carnations and dianthus. These plants are closely related and put on a sterling show. Sizes and colours vary, and dianthus is ideal for pots and containers, too. 10. Hydrangeas. Large, frilly heads of flowers appear from mid-summer until the end of autumn. One or two heads are enough to fill a vase.

Freshen up old container soil by adding in Novatec fertiliser and Debco Saturaid. Mix it in thoroughly before planting. Water – keep the soil moist, not wet. Water deeply once or twice a week, rather than a little every day. Don’t put your flowers to bed wet, as this can encourage disease and mildew problems. Hunt down a copy of the Tui NZ Flower Garden. This book has more than 1000 photographs and pages of ideas.   – APNZ

1. Sweet peas. Easy to grow, all these flowers need is a sunny spot and something to climb up and hold on to. A fence, trellis or a tall host plant such as topiary are all options. The trick to success is to keep picking them, as this encourages more flowers. 2. Snapdragon. Tall, elegant and easy to grow, these will last in a vase for a week or more. 3. Peruvian lily (Alstroemeria) (pictured right). Plant in spring or summer to pick throughout summer and autumn. These will keep well for weeks in a vase. 4. Marguerite daisies. Masses of daisies cover the plants from early spring until winter, and dwarf varieties are perfect for pots and patio planting. 5. Dahlias. Plant in late spring/ early summer for autumn picking. Lift and divide the clumps each winter to get more free plants. 6. Stock. A good, old-fashioned fragrant favourite to plant all year round. These hardy perfumed stalwarts are a must-have for the flora-ista’s garden. 7. Bulbs. Gladiolus, lilies and crocus can all be planted now for autumn flowering. 8. Roses. With so many to choose

Weekend By Kris Shannon


- A large crowd is expected at Rome’s Olympic Stadium on Sunday morning (NZT) when Italy host the All Blacks. The venue was the scene of one of New Zealand’s greatest Olympic moments when Peter Snell (800m) and Murray Halberg (5000m) won gold within an hour of each other in 1960.


- The New Zealand cricket side have won only one test in 2012 - January’s innings defeat of Zimbabwe - and have a wretched record this year overall. Since the Zimbabwe tour, they have played 31 matches in all forms and won just four, lost 21, tied two (which were lost in super overs), drawn two and had two no-results.





1. Stein Huysegems

The former Belgian international is a quality signing who has come at a bargain price. Huysegems is rumoured to be on about onefifth of what Newcastle’s Emile Heskey is getting paid, and the 30-year-old has netted three goals in his first six games. The Phoenix have lacked a reliable finisher during the past couple of years but Huysegems appears to fit the mould. He missed a great chance to score during the 1-0 loss to Central Coast on Sunday but, other than that, has ticked every box so far this season. His work ethic off the ball is impressive, too.

former Barbados international isn’t far away from being back to full fitness and being a 90-minute player again. Huysegems, who experienced a huge lay-off before joining the Phoenix, is also still one step behind the eightball. When both get up to speed, they will be an even bigger force in the A-League.

3. Experience

Four players in the Phoenix’s regular starting XI - Andrew Durante, Tony Lochhead, Manny Muscat and Leo Bertos - have all played more than 100 games for the club and Ben Sigmund has notched up 95 appearances since 2008. That experience is invaluable and will be crucial during the next few weeks as the team look to burst out of their mini-slump. When the chips are down, teams need their old heads to come to the fore, and Sigmund and Durante must take greater control at the back so they can shore up a defence that has leaked a couple of soft goals this year.


They have been here before Last season the Phoenix won only one of their opening seven games. Sound familiar? It’s how this season is shaping up considering this week’s tricky away trip to Newcastle. Last summer the Phoenix rebounded to finish fourth in the league and did their best to make waves in the

The Phoenix aren’t in panic mode playoffs, too. The club have the class on the field to get back to the post-season, but need to put it all together and harness the energy they played with during their opening night 2-0 win over Sydney FC, when they played the Sky Blues and Alessandro Del Piero off the park.

5. Westpac Stadium

The trip to Wellington to play the Phoenix at the Cake Tin used to be the mostfeared away trip in the A-League. As Brisbane Roar coach Rado Vidosic pointed out, even the grass at Westpac Stadium is different to what players from across the Tasman

“A peck or full French?”  - Frank A

are used to treading on. But in the past year Australian sides have played with confidence in Wellington, and the Phoenix need to return to the mentality that they simply never lose at home. They famously went undefeated through 24 games at Westpac during a near-two year stretch from 2008-2010, and they need to build a similar run during this campaign.  - APNZ

Coach steps up By Jonathan Leask

Michael O’Callaghan is a teacher with his fingers in many pies, predominantly those with a sporting flavour. It is precisely his busy coaching presence at Ashburton College that saw him receive the Outstanding Contribution to Sport award at the recent Aoraki Sports Awards. He coaches several rugby and cricket teams as well as running the lunchtime sport programme. “I also teach too,” O’Callaghan said. “I am a teacher, and the coaching side of things has just been a bonus.” He has been at Ashburton College for two and a half years, but is still having to tell people what subjects he teaches. “I teach English and history, not PE as everyone seems to assume.” When he arrived from teachers college he immediately inherited his first team, the first of many. “As soon as I started I was handed the under 14 rugby team, and when summer came I had a year nine cricket team and took over a Saturday team for a while. “Then I moved up to the under 15 rugby team and had the year nine cricket team before I took up the position of Kiwisports co-ordinator, which is running the lunchtime sports programme.” This year O’Callaghan took the second under 15s again as well as the 2nd XV and now in summer has control of the year 9 and 2nd XI. His biggest achievement came with the under 15 boys, guiding them to a win at the South Island Junior Tournament. “It was such a major achievement.

The standard of rugby at the tournament is really high. “It was my third time going so I had the advantage of knowing what a high level of rugby it was and could get the guys ready for that. “The first time I went I was just a last minute fill-in coach and the team got smashed. “Then last year we were beaten semi-finalists before winning it this year.” He has also had success with the year nine cricket team in the national year 9 knockout competition, essentially a Gillette Cup for year 9s, guiding College to the South Island final. “We lost to St Andrews in the South Island cricket final, but got some revenge beating them in the rugby final this year.” O’Callaghan is stepping up to the big leagues of college coaching, coming on as an assistant with the1st XI to be groomed as the replacement for Dennis Mably, and has been called in by Shane Enright to be the backline coordinator for the 1st XV in next year’s Crusaders Secondary Schools campaign. “I was a loose forward so I know more about lines that the backs are running than I do about technical forwards stuff.”

Thumbs down for Jackman Mid Canterbury’s Mark Jackman has failed to fully recover from his thumb injury in time to make the latest New Zealand Sevens squad. All Blacks Sevens coach Gordon Tietjens named a training squad to assemble in Mount Maunganui next week to prepare for the next two tournaments of the Sevens World Series, in Dubai and Port Elizabeth. But Jackman hasn’t fully recovered from his thumb injury. Jackman dislocated and fractured his thumb in the series opening tournament on the Gold Coast in the first game against the USA last month and required surgery to put things back in place. Following the surgery he had a narrow fourweek recovery window, spending three of those weeks in cast. “I saw the specialist on Monday and had the cast removed along with getting the wire taken out,” Jackman said. “It’s only been four weeks since the operation and they said it needs a couple more until I can start getting the strength back. “I’m pretty limited with movement at the moment.” He had hoped to be ready but it was a race against the clock and time ran out for the thumb to be ready. “It is what it is, and it’s not ready. That’s just part of sport. “I have a good rehab programme now that it’s out of cast so I’m on top of that.” His unavailability puts him out of the Dubai and

South Africa legs of the series but he is expecting to ready for round four in Wellington in February, the tournament where he made his debut earlier this year. Jackman’s injury is a loss to the squad but Tietjens has been able to call in the cavalry. The explosive Sherwin Stowers is back in the sevens mix after being overlooked by the Blues for next year’s super 15 and unwanted by the other New Zealand franchises. Stowers wasn’t the only unwanted player Tietjens has called in after the super 15 squads were announced with fellow Blues rejects Ben Lam and David Raikuna, as well as Kurt Baker. Baker is currently on tour with the Maori All Blacks and will not be attending the camp, but will be considered for selection. ITM Cup standouts Tony Ensor of Otago and Gillies Kaka of Hawke’s Bay have also been handed lifelines. “The squad is looking good. I’m sure they will come together well over the next couple of weeks building up to Dubai,” Jackman said. “Kurt and Sherwin both bring in a lot of experience which we lacked a bit in the backs at the last tournament.” The experience of Stowers and Baker, both Commonwealth Games gold medallist in New Delhi in 2010, will be a welcome relief to Tietjens who took a young and inexperienced squad to the Gold Coast, but still managed to finish runnerup. The Dubal tournament begins on November 30 before the South African leg a week later.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Saturday, November 17, 2012



New man at the helm By Wynne Gray

New skipper, new players and a new style of play. It is all change for the All Blacks on Sunday as, for the first time, Kieran Read leads them into combat against the men from Italy with wing Julian Savea being the only player backing up from the side which began against Scotland. There was natural acclaim for Read from his team-mates and coaches with midfield back Ma’a

Nonu weighing in with his approval. For the last three years Read had been a world class No 8, he was a leader in the forwards, and had captained teams when his good buddy Richie McCaw was absent. “I think he will be a great captain,” Nonu said. A crowd of about 70,000 is expected to attend the test in Rome. There has been some disappointment that McCaw and Daniel Carter were not starting, but

coach Steve Hansen explained his needs to rotate the 32 strong squad in the opening two internationals. He also mentioned that Carter was in the reserves and likely to make an appearance, and that had not been the intention until several players were injured. Read, like his team-mates, was anxious to get out onto the park. It had been a long wait, keeping his captaincy elevation secret and waiting to get a start. “I can’t wait to run out at the head of the pack on Saturday

(Sun NZ) but it is all about getting my job done so it is pretty important to make sure I do that,” he said. ‘It is a great opportunity, a massive honour and one of the biggest jobs in the country I guess and following a man (McCaw) who is in my opinion, the best captain ever in the All Blacks. “He said the easiest way to lead is if you are the best player on the pitch and I think he does that every week, and that is essentially how I want to do things as well. “I have to get my performance

right, then the guys will follow and you can lead with your words after that.” Being a strong performer helped the leadership duties. He did not want to take any new tack as captain, he wanted to use his natural instincts. “I have my own style how I like to lead. “I want to make sure the team knows exactly where they are going and is on the same page and working as strongly as they can together,” he added. McCaw had provided lots of help

in his career and Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder had been another mentor. Hansen understood Italians wanted to see both McCaw and Carter but the two guys who were taking their places, Sam Cane and Aaron Cruden were strong players. They were making their way in international rugby and were part of an All Black group determined to match the quality their teammates had shown in the 51-22 win against Scotland.  - NZH

Evolution not revolution for All Blacks By Gregor Paul

There hasn’t been a revolution, there wasn’t a post World Cup exodus and yet the All Blacks have a decidedly different look about them these days. New faces have arrived, bedded in quickly and become part of the furniture without there being any great fuss. We haven’t really noticed but the side has changed, maybe not significantly but certainly to some extent since the World Cup. The final two weeks of this tour will provide further clarification of the pecking order, more insight into what the selectors consider their best side. Since 2010, the All Blacks have pursued a largely consistent selection policy which has not only enabled them to win a staggering 34 of their last 38 tests, but has also provided the perfect means to chart the evolution of the playing personnel - a document of sorts to see who has remained a fixture in the starting team and who has faded away. A few first-choice players disappeared in 2010: Neemia

Brad Thorn: his departure left a big hole in the All Blacks engine room

Change is the inevitable consequence of a world-class production line Tialata, Tom Donnelly and Joe Rokocoko most notably. In 2011 Mils Muliaina and Jimmy Cowan were the only two who started the season in pole position and lost their places and this year the All Blacks have been without Brad Thorn and Jerome Kaino, who have both gone offshore, and Richard Kahui, who is injured. The upshot is that, as 2012 comes to a close, it becomes apparent that change is constant for the All Blacks even through times of stability and prosperity. They owe their consistent No 1 status to many factors, not the least of which is the evolution of personnel. Change is the inevitable consequence of a world-class production line of talent that keeps developing players who can’t be resisted.

There is no comfort zone in All Black rugby and four, maybe five places are still up for grabs in the final two weeks. Aaron Smith, so good all year, has to deliver an accurate, direct and forceful performance against Italy because Piri Weepu was sharp and creative against Scotland. Brodie Retallick has to match the work-rate of Luke Romano and dominate the lineout, Liam Messam knows Victor Vito is coming to grips with the physical side of test football and that he’ll have to confront and dominate a staunch Italian pack and Julian Savea and Hosea Gear are in a head-to-head battle to win the the left wing berth. “There has been some consistency of selection and I think that has been good and in all probability that is probably what will happen [against Wales],” All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said. “But what we are saying is that we are not going to be frightened to make changes if we think someone is in better form.” That’s the All Black way. Nothing ever stands still, no position is taken for granted and slowly teams evolve, and 2012 is no exception.  - APNZ


Bob Scott - the complete footballer Bob Scott used to put on halftime barefoot goalkicking exhibitions but it was what he did during games which won him even more admirers. Scott, who was one of the best fullbacks to pull on an All Blacks jersey, died yesterday morning at his home in the Coromandel aged 91. He was the oldest living All Black and that mantle passes to good friend (the pair were best men at each other’s weddings) and former Canterbury wing Wally Argus, 91. “Bob was a much admired player, regarded by many as

the complete fullback who played the game with passion and courage,” New Zealand Rugby Union Chairman Mike Eagle said. “Many will remember Bob as one of the greatest players to pull on the 15 jersey, and he was certainly a hugely popular member of the teams he played for.” Scott played 52 games for the All Blacks, including 17 tests, after making his debut against Australia in Dunedin in 1946 but initially played rugby league for Ponsonby before switching to rugby when he joined the army in 1942. He

served in Italy during World War II and afterwards toured Britain, France, Germany and New Zealand with the New Zealand Expeditionary Forces team before being picked for the All Blacks for their first post-war test series against Australia in 1946. Scott admitted he wasn’t the quickest player, relying more on instincts and skill, and is generally regarded as being ahead of his time. He was a running fullback, in an era when most fullbacks tended to stay at home, and was also a handy goalkicker. “For me there

will never by anyone as great as Scott,” former commentator Winston McCarthy wrote. Former South African No 8 Hennie Muller described him as, “Altogether, the greatest footballer I’ve ever played against in any position”. Scott initially retired from representative rugby in 1951 but played one game for Auckland in 1952 and was persuaded to make himself available for the 1953/54 All Blacks tour to Britain. He had a brilliant tour, playing in all five tests including the shock defeat to Wales, and

was given a huge ovation when walking off Cardiff Arms Park after the All Blacks beat the Barbarians 19-5. It was his last major game in an All Black jersey. He ended his career playing club rugby for Petone - large crowds still flocked to watch him - and appeared in a number of invitation teams over the next few seasons. It was during festival games or at halftime in matches he would referee that he sometimes gave demonstrations of barefoot goalkicking, frequently landing goals from halfway. His

best kick was from 65 yards (59.4m) in Hawera. “I had a pretty good sense of timing,” Scott once said. He was an exceptional allround sportsman. He was a scratch golfer who played at the New Zealand Open and was also a very good softballer and would probably have played for New Zealand if a national team had existed then. He played bowls to a high standard. Scott was inducted into the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame in 1990, and in 1995 was awarded an MBE for services to - APNZ sport.

Brown set for revival By Daniel Richardson

Career revivals are nothing new for Mark Brown and he’s hoping his latest rejuvenation brings about a return to one of golf’s biggest tours. The Lower Hutt right-hander has spent this year playing predominantly in Australia, New Zealand and Asia after losing his European Tour card at the end of last season. Brown banked 121,005 (NZ$190,360) in 2011 - a good return for most but not enough in the golfing world which saw him finish 161st in the Race to Dubai. It brought to an end a busy four-year stint on the top European circuit and made him re-evaluate his game. “I think I played too much,” he said. “I played 35 tournaments a year. I got a bit stale and lost my game a little bit and wasn’t working hard enough on the golf course and in the gym and just got a bit lazy. When that happens on a big tour like the European Tour, you get spat out the bottom pretty quickly and that’s what happened to me. “So this year’s been good getting back home, working a lot harder, having a few weeks off so I can work hard in off-weeks. I’m back seeing Mal Tongue for coaching and that’s sorted my golf game out. I just had to sort my body out and get strong and being at home has given me all those chances to do that.” Brown played 34 times in both 2010 and 2011 - most professionals play between 20 and 25 tournaments a year - and he was also without a coach for a couple of years. His extra hours in the gym have paid off this year and he is sitting second on the Australasian PGA order

• Archibald taking a break New Zealand may have seen the last of one of the best hockey players the country has produced, with Ryan Archibald taking an indefinite break from the game. The 32-year-old made himself unavailable for next month’s Champions Trophy in Melbourne, and he was the notable absentee when new Black Sticks’ coach Colin Batch announced his squad on Thursday. While stopping short of retiring, Archibald said he has lost the passion to play in the national side and, for the foreseeable future, will instead focus on work. “I’m taking a bit of time away from the national programme just to think about my future,” he said. “Over the next few months I’ll basically learn whether there’s still motivation there to be involved with the national programme, or whether I give that away.” - APNZ

• Lee slips in California

Mark Brown: blitzed the field in the Carrus Open, shooting eight-under in the final round

of merit and ninth on the OneAsia money list. Brown also blitzed the field at September’s Carrus Open in Tauranga when he shot a final-round eight-under 62 to claim the title by four shots. It might have been a tournament with a purse of only $40,000 but it was a win at another Charles Tour event and good things happened after he won the Taranaki Open in 2006. After turning professional in 1996, he bounced around the Canadian Tour for a few years without much success and was even working as a junior development officer for the Wellington Golf Association before he decided to give the game another decent run. After that win in Taranaki,

Brown collected US$191,356 (NZ$236,223) on the Asian Tour in 2007 before a stellar 2008. He won the Sail Open by four strokes in India in February and lodged his biggest career payday when he claimed the Johnnie Walker Classic in New Delhi a week later. With a handful of tournaments to go on the Australasian and OneAsia tours this year, Brown’s final standings will dictate where he will play next season. He has three starts guaranteed on the European Tour and, if he can deliver during one, should earn another tour card. Brown will start this week’s New Zealand Open at Clearwater as one of the

tournament favourites and the 38-year-old would love to be the first Kiwi since Mahal Pearce triumphed at Middlemore in 2003 to win the national open. “It’s been a dream since I was a kid,” he said. “I’ve had two top 10s but that was back in the day and I wasn’t playing particularly well. “But I feel like the last few years I’m probably a lot better golfer. This will be my first chance to play in it for a while so it’ll be nice just to get in contention and go from there. I think if we can work our way in to a good position to head into the weekend, that’d be great and hopefully get lots of people out to watch.” They might even witness another Brown revival.- APNZ

New Zealand No1 Danny Lee fired a one-over par 73 at the Bear Creek Golf Club, in round two of the second stage of PGA Tour Qualifying in California yesterday. The 22-year-old Rotorua professional, who opened with a sevenunder par 65 to claim the lead, slipped back to a share of seventh place on a six-under par total. He is seven shots back from leader South Korean Si Kim (70, 61). Lee, who began on the 10th tee, was two-under at the turn after three birdies and a bogey. He lost his way making three bogeys to sign for a 73. Also at the Bear Creek Golf Club Steven Alker has bounced back in the second round to keep his hopes alive. The Hamilton pro, who opened with a three-over par 75 to be in a share of 56th place, has managed a five-under par 67 to climb to a tie for 23rd.- APNZ

• Gosper’s Twitter ‘a worry’ It may be a sign about his (Gosper’s) lack of administrative rugby savvy but this utterance in the public arena, via Twitter, was not promising. Early into his job, new IRB boss Brett Gosper has not distinguished himself. No doubt he has some serious business acumen after a 30-year stint in the advertising world in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and America since he transferred his Australian-born talents north of the equator. But his decision to embroil himself in a review of Adam Thomson’s week ban for trampling, through social networking site Twitter, is not promising.

• Tired McIlroy crashes out Rory McIlroy’s bid to become the first man in half a century to retain the $US2 million Hong Kong Open came to an embarrassing end yesterday, the world No.1 crashing out with a doublebogey. With the 23-year-old almost certain to miss the halfway cut after a disastrous second round, Denmark’s Anders Hansen surged to the top of the leaderboard, the tournament now wide open after McIlroy’s meltdown. Hansen took the clubhouse lead in swirling conditions at Hong Kong Golf Club with a flawless 64 that was embellished with six birdies to card a two-day total of seven-under-par 133. Michael Campbell was seven-under through eight holes. - AFP

• Whincup on track for title Jamie Whincup’s short-term future almost certainly has another V8 Supercar championship in it - perhaps as soon as this weekend. His long-term future is anyone’s guess, with the Holden driver not ruling out a move away from the sport he has dominated once his contract expires at the end of 2013. Whincup could wrap up his fourth V8 title by the end of the weekend’s two races at Winton. With another year remaining on his Team Vodafone deal, Whincup will certainly be a part of the series next season. - APNZ

‘No expectations’ in Europe BikeNZ’s international track campaign for the summer begins on a youthful note in Europe today. Dylan Kennett, 17, is the sole New Zealand representative at the UCI World Cup in Glasgow this weekend, staged in the new Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, the venue for track cycling at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The World Cup has drawn a strong Great Britain contingent and several Olympic champions in what will be a big step-up for the young Kiwi from Waimate, who won four medals at September’s world junior track championships in Invercargill. It will be his first serious test over the full 4000m for the individual pursuit with coach Dayle

Cheatley putting no pressure on the young rider. “Dylan is one of a group of very gifted young riders that we want to nurture through to (the 2016 Olympics in) Rio, and that begins here in Glasgow,” said Cheatley. “There are no expectations here. “It is the start of the season and the Great Britain team are here in force on their new home track. “It is just the first step on a long journey for Dylan and an excellent opportunity for him to experience competition at this level as well as a chance to look at this new track with an eye on 2014.” Kennett has a hit out today in the men’s scratch race with the individual pursuit set for Sunday. The teenager will then head to Australia to join up with a youthful New Zealand team for the Oceania track championships starting in Adelaide next Wednesday. The championships, which carry qualifying points for world cup and world championships, represent the start of the campaign looking ahead to the 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2016 Olympic Games. The team includes some of the young riders from the under-23 development programme, Olympic sprint team and also some of the riders who enjoyed success at the world junior championships. A number of other New Zealand riders are competing at the championships under their regional colours.  - APNZ Ashburton’s Alex Hooper has made the BikeNZ junior team for the Oceania Championships in Adelaide photo tetsuro mitomo 301211-tm-061

• Auks get Mustard Former England international Phil Mustard will be Auckland’s second overseas import for their domestic T20 campaign this summer. Auckland, chasing their third straight HRV Cup crown, used veteran Australian Brad Hodge in last night’s opener against Wellington in the capital. However, Hodge is committed to playing in Australia’s Big Bash League, which begins on December 7. Auckland have a month’s break now before their second cup game, against Canterbury at Eden Park on December 21. ‘Colonel’ Mustard is expected to arrive shortly beforehand, in time to play a four-day Plunket Shield game against Canterbury earlier that week to find his feet. He will play all nine rounds of the cup and be available for the finals if - NZH Auckland make it.

The organising committee said Carreira died of injuries sustained in the crash yesterday afternoon. “No other rider was involved in the incident, which occurred at Fisherman’s Bend ... The qualifying session was immediately red-flagged,” the committee said in a statement. “As a result of the doctors’ diagnosis, Mr Carreira was immediately evacuated by ambulance to the hospital.” The 35-yearold from Lisbon died about 30 minutes later, it added. “The Macau Grand Prix Committee has contacted the family and the members of the team, and the committee expresses its sincere condolences,” it said.- AFP

to improve record By David Leggat

It’s no fun dwelling overly long on New Zealand’s test record of late. There are any number of depressing activities available these days. Reading New Zealand’s recent test statistics is one. So when captain Ross Taylor talked this week about having “an opportunity to create some history” in Galle starting tonight, it sounded long on optimism, short on hard evidence to suggest going into the first test with real confidence about the task ahead. Since beating England in Hamilton with a cracking performance in early 2008, New Zealand have played 38 tests, lost 20 of them and won only six, of which four, with due respect, were against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. Only Pakistan in Dunedin in

2009 and Australia at Hobart last December were wins against major test nations. That’s wretched reading. Both previous tests in Galle have been lost heavily. Things may well get worse before they improve. Two tests in South Africa are coming up in the New Year; three at home to England, and then back to the Mother Country for two more next May. Sri Lanka have won 11 and drawn four of their 20 tests at the Galle International Stadium. Still, chins up. The Sri Lankan team, although containing some reasons to be on guard, also offer the prospect of, at the least, being competitive. For a start there’s no Muttiah Muralitharan any more. Sri Lanka have decent seamers, but there’s a feeling that if New Zealand can get among the key figures, there is a softish underbelly to the home side.  - NZH

Signs mount of possible Israeli invasion of Gaza Israeli aircraft pummeled rocket launching operations of Gaza militants on Friday, and as troops, tanks and armored personnel carriers massed near the Palestinian territory, signaling a ground invasion might be growing near. Fighting between the two sides escalated sharply Thursday with a first-ever militant attack on the Tel Aviv area, menacing Israel’s heartland. No casualties were reported, but three people died in the country’s rocket-scarred south when a projectile slammed into an apartment building. The death toll in the densely populated Palestinian territory climbed to 19, including five children according to Palestinian health officials, as waves of Israeli fighter planes and drones sent missiles hurtling down on suspected weapons stores and rocket-launching sites. Early Friday, 85 missiles exploded within 45 minutes in Gaza City, sending black pillars of smoke towering above the coastal strip’s largest city. The military said it was targeting underground rocketlaunching sites. One missile hit the Interior Ministry, a symbol of Hamas power. The fighting has already widened the instability gripping a region in the throes of war and regime upheavals. Most immediately, it is straining already frayed relations with Egypt, which plans to send its prime minister to Gaza later Friday in a show of solidarity with its militant Hamas rulers. Israel and Hamas had largely observed an informal truce since Israel’s devastat-

• Killer executed Convicted killer Preston Hughes III was executed Thursday for the fatal stabbing of a 3-year-old boy and the child’s teenage cousin who uttered her attacker’s first name to police in her dying breaths 24 years ago in Houston. Hughes, 46, insisted he was innocent, contending police planted evidence and coerced his confessions to the September 1988 slayings of Shandra Charles, 15, and her cousin Marcell Taylor. Hughes became the 15th Texas prisoner executed this year and the second in as many nights. On Wednesday, Ramon Hernandez, 41, was executed for the abduction and murder of a San Antonio woman.

Palestinian mourners carry the body of Hamas’ top military commander Ahmed Jabari, killed in an Israeli strike, during his funeral in Gaza City. Israel barraged the Gaza Strip with airstrikes and shelling Wednesday and killed the Hamas military chief in a targeted strike, launching a campaign aimed at stopping rocket attacks from Islamic militants. ing incursion into Gaza four years ago, but rocket fire and Israeli airstrikes on militant operations didn’t halt entirely. The latest flare-up exploded into major violence Wednesday when Israel assassinated Hamas’ military chief, following up with a punishing air assault meant to cripple the militants’ ability to terrorize Israel with rockets. The Israeli military reported early Friday that its aircraft had struck more than 350 targets since the beginning of its operation against Hamas’ rocket operations. On Thursday, Israeli war-

Spain halts mortgagee evictions Spain has approved a two-year suspension of evictions for some needy homeowners unable to pay their mortgages, but activists said the government failed to address the larger issue of how those who give up their homes may still remain indebted, sometimes for the rest of their lives. Evictions have suddenly became one of the most sensitive topics in Spain’s financial drama, and government officials acted less than a week after a Spanish woman facing eviction killed herself by jumping from an apartment balcony. They are trying reverse or at least delay a trend that has seen more than 371,000 mortgage eviction orders issued since the financial crisis hit the country in 2008. The government, which is still preparing a broader overhaul of the country’s mortgage and property laws, said it hoped to shield those most in need by suspending mortgage payments for some mortgage holders. “We must avoid families ending up in the street as a consequence of the crisis,” Economy Minister Luis de Guindos said.  - AP

planes struck dozens of Hamas-linked targets, sending loud booms echoing across the narrow Mediterranean coastal strip at regular intervals, followed by gray columns of smoke. After nightfall, several explosions shook Gaza City several minutes apart, a sign the strikes were not letting up. The military said the targets were about 70 underground rocket-launching sites. The onslaught has not deterred the militants from striking back with more than 400 rockets aimed at southern Israel. For the first time, they also unleashed the most pow-

erful weapons in their arsenal — Iranian-made Fajr-5 rockets capable of reaching Tel Aviv. The two rockets that struck closest to Tel Aviv appear to have landed in the Mediterranean Sea, defense officials said, and another hit an open area on Tel Aviv’s southern outskirts. No injuries were reported, but the rocket fire — the first in the area from Gaza — sowed panic in Tel Aviv and made the prospect of a ground incursion more likely. The government later approved the mobilization of up to 30,000 reservists for a - AP possible invasion. 

Cocaine, corpse on yacht A dead body and 204 kilograms of cocaine were found aboard a yacht bound for Australia that ran aground off the Tonga coast. Tongan authorities found the drugs, with an estimated street value of $116 million, hidden in the hull of the 13-metre yacht JeReVe early this month,

Australian Federal Police said on Friday. The yacht had run aground on the island of Luatatifo, in the northern Vava’u province of Tonga. The badly decomposed body of a man found on board is now the subject of a Tongan coronial investigation to determine a cause of death.

Tongan police have not yet ruled the death suspicious. AFP acting assistant commissioner David Sharpe said the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) tipped them off in August that an organised crime syndicate had launched the vessel from Ecuador headed for Australia.

Former doubles champion Bob Hewitt has been suspended from the International Tennis Hall of Fame after an investigation into allegations that he sexually abused girls he coached, and his legacy has been stripped from the institution, officials have announced. Hall of Fame CEO Mark Stenning said the Hall’s executive committee voted unanimously to suspend Hewitt indefinitely after an outside investigation deemed credible the allegations of multiple women who said they were abused by Hewitt while he was coaching them decades ago. The Australian-born Hewitt won several Grand Slam events during his career in the 1960s and 1970s and was inducted into the Hall in 1992.

• Ford axes jobs The Australian government will do everything it can to support sacked Ford workers, federal Treasurer Wayne Swan says. Mr Swan told reporters in Melbourne his thoughts went out to workers affected by Ford’s decision to axe 212 jobs at its two Victorian plants. “The government will do everything it possibly can through our programs to assist those workers,” he said. The workers at the Broadmeadows and Geelong plants found out their fate yesterday, after the company received a $103 million assistance package, including $34 million from the federal government. When asked if the package was a good investment, Mr Swan said the government had been working hard with the auto industry.

BP pays $4.5b spill damage A day of reckoning arrived for BP on Thursday as the oil giant agreed to plead guilty to a raft of charges in the deadly Gulf of Mexico spill and pay a record $4.5 billion, including the biggest criminal fine in US history. Three BP employees were also charged, two of them with manslaughter. The settlement with the federal government came 2½ years after the fiery drilling-rig explosion that killed 11 workers and set off the nation’s largest offshore oil spill. In announcing the deal, Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer said the tragedy “resulted from BP’s culture

of privileging profit over prudence.” BP will plead guilty to charges involving the 11 deaths and lying to Congress about how much oil was spewing from the blown-out well. “We believe this resolution is in the best interest of BP and its shareholders,” said CarlHenric Svanberg, BP chairman. “It removes two significant legal risks and allows us to vigorously defend the company against the remaining civil claims.” The settlement appears to be easily affordable for BP, which made a record $25.8 billion in profits last year. And it will have five years to pay. But the oil

giant still faces several billion dollars in additional claims for damage to people’s livelihoods and the environment. Separately, BP rig workers Robert Kaluza and Donald Vidrine were indicted on federal charges of manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter, accused of repeatedly disregarding abnormal high-pressure readings that should have been glaring indications of trouble just before the blowout. In addition, David Rainey, BP’s former vice president of exploration for the Gulf of Mexico, was charged with obstruction of Congress and making false statements. Prosecutors said he

withheld information that more oil was gushing from the well than he let on. Rainey’s lawyers said he did “absolutely nothing wrong.” And attorneys for the two rig workers accused the Justice Department of making scapegoats out of them. Both men are still with BP. “Bob was not an executive or high-level BP official. He was a dedicated rig worker who mourns his fallen co-workers every day,” Kaluza attorneys Shaun Clarke and David Gerger said in a statement. “No one should take any satisfaction in this indictment of an innocent man. This is not justice.”  - AP

Lack of scale Careful earthworks pay off issue for NZ By Sam Morton

This country’s lack of scale is a big issue facing exporters and a serious debate needs to take place over what its optimal population should be. That’s according to a new report, Lifting Export Performance, conducted by the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research (NZIER) on behalf of lobby group ExportNZ. Catherine Beard, the group’s executive director, said the report was a sobering reality check on the nation’s export performance, addressing the big issues in New Zealand - its small size and isolation. “One of the obvious ways to overcome these problems is to make New Zealand a bigger country with bigger companies,” Beard said. “We need a national debate on population policy and how big we should be by 2060.” Beard said scale could not be faked. “We need to grow the population through immigration and build companies of scale,” she said. “Once grown, the challenge is then keeping these companies in New Zealand so the country benefits from them. The alternative is selling out to other countries and losing talent overseas for better jobs and better pay.” NZIER said a population of 15 million by 2060 would be a good start for New Zealand. Boosting exports required “first-rate” policy settings, said NZIER deputy chief executive John Ballingall. “We need to ensure existing capabilityenhancing policies are delivering value for money.

Local earthmoving company Grant Hood Contracting has triumphed as Canterbury’s most environmentally friendly contracting business. The Ashburton company of 14 employees and more than 25 fleet vehicles and plant machinery impressed the judges with their considerate work plan carried out during the Mill Creek Bank stabilisation project. The major project involved eight months of continuous labour, accessing private backyards to get to the creek and working closely around council resource consents. Operations manager Michael Chivers praised the team for their all-round efforts. “We accessed the entire creek through people’s private backyards and the footprint we left can hardly be seen. “A big praise has to go the staff and the achievement is a real selling point to our clients that we do consider and we do care for the environment when we carry out our work,” Mr Chivers said. The Contractor of the Year (Environment) award was presented at a regional dinner in Christchurch, attended by more than 30 other contracting companies in Canterbury – all members of the New Zealand Contractors Federation. Mr Chivers said the award was a surprise to the team, but was thoroughly deserved. “This is really just the start of it all – we have to maintain that reputation and you have to work at it. “It’s no good sitting back and saying we won that and then not give it any more thought. This is a real team effort and it will continue to be,” he said. The company will now have the option of entering the National Awards dinner in Queenstown next July – but according to Mr Chivers, that decision has yet to be made. “We will take a close look at our project and if we think it’s worth a shot, then of course we will put our name among the best. “We were selected as the entry that met all the criteria at a regional level, but whether or Photo Kirsty Graham 081112-KG_026 not we test our criteria against the national entrants – we’ll Eco friendly: Grant Hood Contracting operations manager Michael Chivers (left) and make that call in a couple of site supervisor Michael Ball holding the business’s winning plaque for the Canterbury months,” he said.

Brewer down, but not out Paddy Sweeney says his Westcoast Brewing and West Coast Bar and Grill were put into liquidation earlier this week despite his efforts to stop the process. On Tuesday, associate judge Rob Osborne ordered both the companies to be put into liquidation. Mr Sweeney said the Christchurch restaurant had been sold to a new operator on Monday and it was business as usual. He had worked “diligently” to stop the liquidation from happening but needed more time, time the Inland Revenue Department was not prepared to grant, he alleged. “I made mistakes back in 2009 and 2010 and we never recovered despite my wife and I contributing over the duration close to $1 million to save the group. At this point we have no more to give, otherwise we would.” He said the West Coast Brewery

should never have been put into liquidation. “I personally offered to pay the core debt to the IRD two days before the hearing but it was rejected, they wanted the interest and penalties as well. I didn’t have that. Then a second rate high fee lawyer at the hearing forgot to mention that to the judge my offer, and bang, down came the stamp and it was all over.” He said he was also personally paying $7000 a month to the IRD but the interest and penalties were greater than that and he was getting “suffocated” financially. “The IRD is an essential part of society and taxes must be paid. Our back taxes weren’t paid as we struggled to turn the group around, this going back a number of years. “It was me that made the bad decisions no one else is to blame. I’m where the buck stops.”

Mr Sweeney said he believed the tax system was fundamentally flawed as its “crippling penalties” hurt struggling businesses. He said both companies were making profits when they were forced into liquidation. All shareholders had been contacted in June to be part of a buyback for the West Coast Brewery but only a very small number came on board, he said. He said leading up to the liquidation with the parent company, Westcoast Brewing Ltd, he had done a deal with creditors other than the IRD to convert their debt to shares in West Coast Brewing which left the $19,000 debt to the IRD remaining, which had blown out to $40,000 with penalties and interest. “Prior to liquidation I wrote to all shareholders asking them if they wanted to be part of a rescue package for $40,000 and not one replied.”  - APNZ

Investors lost $3m in fraud Loizos Michaels convinced people to “think big” and believe in his investment plans - before he fleeced them of more than $3 million, a court has heard. On his fifth and final day giving evidence at Auckland District Court, Michaels was asked by Crown prosecutor Christine Gordon SC whether he lied to the court in the same way he lied to dozens of witnesses who have given evidence over the past seven weeks. The 45-year-old is on trial after denying 31 deception charges laid by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO). During his week in the witness box, Michaels claimed he lost money in an online gaming venture with former Christchurch Casino chief executive Stephen Lyttelton and National Party President Peter Goodfellow was involved in a bid to take over Sky City. Michaels also pointed the finger at politicians Pita Sharples and John Tamihere, who he said had been paid money by Mr Lyttelton. He said his ex-wife had drug and alcohol issues and his bank had been complicit in a money laundering operation. The claims contradicts evidence from Crown witnesses. Towards the end of her crossexamination yesterday, Ms Gordon put a series of propositions to Michaels. “You got people to think big and put up big schemes and



believe you could back those schemes with big money.” Ms Gordon said Michaels used people as “pawns” and took their money. “You took money off different people and spent it ... And I suggest you lied to the court, just as you lied to [the witnesses].” Michaels denied each proposition: “I say you’re totally wrong.” Ms Gordon also quizzed Michaels about his attempts to buy 12 luxury apartments at the Sacred Waters complex in Taupo from co-owner Janet Jackson. Mrs Jackson has previously told the court she was persuaded by Michaels to buy the apartments from her co-owners - then sell them to Michaels. She said Michaels told her his money was in a Belgian bank account and his backers needed some security. He convinced her to make several payments worth more than $353,000 to ensure the sales. Micheals was asked about putting All Black great Jonah Lomu’s name on the sale and purchase agreement. “Jonah was just a delay tactic. He knew about it.” The money was transferred into the account of Michaels’ tradesmen hire business Trades R Us but the sale never went ahead. Yesterday Ms Gordon said the SFO had shown Michaels spent $57,000 of the money from Mrs Jackson on rent for his Greek restaurant in Auckland.

Famous plum jam sells for $101 A jar of Gloria Crawford’s world-famous jam has raised just over $100 for Mid Northland Hospice. Mrs Crawford, of Waipapa, hit national headlines in the 2009 “jam scandal” when her Hospice fundraising jam was banned by food safety officials because she made it at home, not in a

dedicated commercial kitchen. But she beat the bureaucrats and caused a stir - not just in Northland but around the world. A photo celebrating Mrs Crawford’s 10,000th jar of breakfast spread was posted on the Northern Advocate’s website on November 7. As at 2pm yesterday it had attracted 13,493

‘likes’, 740 comments and been ‘shared’ 705 times. The newspaper got hold of a jar of plum jam from the batch containing Mrs Crawford’s 10,000th jar and auctioned it online to raise money for Mid Northland Hospice. The auction was won by a New Zealand man in Sydney whose bid was $101.
