Snow storm on the way By Michelle Nelson and APNZ Mid Canterbury is in the path of the worst snow storm in 20 years, according to some forecasters. Snow is predicted to fall to sea level on Thursday and Friday. “This is a very dynamic weather situation, and details about where the snow will fall and how much, may well change,” MetService spokesperson Daniel Corbett said. “It will be important to keep up to date with the latest watches and warnings.” Swollen Mid Canterbury rivers are still contained, and although more rain is expected today, it is set to ease off this afternoon. However, it will be replaced by a bitterly cold snow-bearing, blast of Antarctic air tomorrow. Nowhere in New Zealand will escape the huge winter storm. WeatherWatch head analyst Philip Duncan said a very big low had anchored itself on either side of the South Island. He said the east did not cope well with heavy downpours, which was why there was so much flooding in Canterbury and Otago. “It’s unfortunate that they’re getting all this rain today ahead of a very, very cold change that’s coming a couple of days after this.” Heavy snow is expected on southern and eastern coastlines of both islands later this week, with snow to sea level in the South Island and near to sea level in parts of the North Island. “Nowhere in New Zealand can escape it. This is such a huge system.” The storm is expected to spread north over the entire country on Thursday and Friday, easing on Saturday, ahead of more rain and wind on Sunday. Meanwhile, authorities in the South Island are bracing for more flooding as the regions continue to get hammered with rain. Fire Service southern communications shift manager Riwai

On Friday, Darren Ritchie was no more than another Young Enterprise Scheme contestant. Fast forward to yesterday, and the Mount Hutt College pupil now holds the crown as one of the country’s top young business people who will soon represent New Zealand in Asia. Darren travelled to Auckland to take part in the Enterprise in Action weekend, where his business nous was put to the test against the country’s top young enterprise talent. The 17-year-old has already created waves locally with his Floppets business group, but it was in Auckland where he made the biggest splash after being selected as one of six to travel to Hong Kong for the Junior

The Ministry of Education is taking legal action against those it believes is responsible for a leaky building at a Mid Canterbury school. The ministry confirmed the move in response to an Official Information Act request from the Guardian, asking if there were any Mid Canterbury school buildings among the hundreds of schools that had water leakage problems. “One Mid Canterbury school features among the more than 800 buildings in 300 schools that have encountered leaky building problems,” the response said. “As the ministry is We are pursuing just one legal action to recover costs of many, from the parand sadly ties involved with the work the reality on this school, the name of is many this school buildings is withheld under section are subject 9(2)(j).” to problems The request said there had already been $291,000worth of remedial work carried out on water tightness issues at Longbeach School. But the ministry could not name the other Mid Canterbury school “to enable a Minister of the Crown or any department holding the information to carry out commercial negotiations without prejudice or disadvantage”. On June 7 Ashburton Borough principal Sam Winterbourn told the Guardian his school’s leaky administration block would be pulled down and completely rebuilt. Mr Winterbourn yesterday said he was not privy to any legal action over his school’s faulty building, so it would be inappropriate to comment. When he spoke to the Guardian earlier this month, he predicted the cost would be “in the hundreds of thousands”, and he was sad to know one of the school’s highly prized buildings would have to go. “There were design, material, build and regulation problems,” he said. “We are just one of many, and I think sadly the reality is many buildings built within that timeframe – eight to 10 years ago – are subject to leaky building problems.” About two months ago the Ministry of Education revealed it had taken legal action against building product companies over leaky school buildings. The ministry has already taken 100 leaky building cases to court, and is currently repairing about 800 buildings at 300 schools. The ministry has put the cost for all remedial work at $1.5 billion for leaky school buildings.

The Ashburton River was running bank-to-bank yesterday afternoon. Grace said there had been more than 100 reports of flooding since 6am including in Marahau in Tasman, Kaiapoi and Rangiora in Canterbury, and Oamaru in North Otago. With snow predicted for later this week, Mr Grace said he had warned team members to bring in

extra gear “because if we get stuck at work, we get stuck at work”. Flooded highways have cut Dunedin off from the north and Civil Defence authorities say homes in the Waitaki may have to be evacuated with rivers running at record highs. In South Canterbury several

International Trade Challenge in August and chosen as the sole Young Enterprise Scheme pupil to attend the New Zealand Business Hall of Fame dinner where he will give the closing speech. He was also awarded the Harvard University Business School Illuminati Scholarship while one of his business ideas was placed in the top three in the Global Enterprise Challenge, up against 17 other countries. “I went there expecting just to compete in the competition, and had a pretty sleepless night on Sunday, just wondering how I had gone over the weekend. So when I was presented with the awards on Monday it was pretty amazing,” he said shortly after arriving home from Auckland last night. On Saturday, Darren’s first challenge, along with seven other

teammates, was to create a new tourism venture which balanced the use of technology with environmental sustainability. His group came up with the idea to use the Rena shipwreck as a diving attraction, where divers can replant coral to mend the damaged reef. On the second day, his group took part in the Junior International Trade Challenge where he was tasked with a strategy to export apples into Australia. “So we came up with the idea to make an apple-based surfboard wax,” he said. With each member from the winning team going straight through to the final 20 all vying for Hong Kong, the other teams were left to nominate one member. Darren’s team put his name

In Christchurch, a welfare centre was set up to help people affected by city-wide flooding. Persistent rain caused traffic chaos in the city, with surface flooding in St Albans, Mairehau, Beckenham, New Brighton, Northwood, Burnside and Sumner.

There have also been road and bridge closures, and water seeping into houses has been reported. Some schools were forced to close for the day, including Christ the King School in Burnside, Rangiora High School, and Ashley and Sefton primary schools in North Canterbury.

forward, and his next task was to come up with a fictional business plan of what to do with Mt Hutt if it was closed due to earthquake damage. Darren, using his local knowledge, said he would sell Mt Hutt snowboard stickers to gather money from the royalties and also came up with other extreme sport ideas to do on the mountain. Darren’s idea was enough to have him selected as one of the six members to head to Hong Kong and also the only pupil to represent the Young Enterprise Scheme at the New Zealand Hall of Fame on July 31.

Demolition day arrives

111 diary Incidents attended to by the Ashburton Police and Mid Canterbury volunteer fire brigades recently. Check out, for up-to-the-minute updates on every fire callout in the district during the week.

By Sue Newman Yesterday Ashburton’s historic railway station was a desolate place; it stood surrounded by locked gates, awaiting the arrival of demolition crews. Water poured from broken spoutings, dripped from its leaking roof. Paint peeled from rotten weather boards; it was clearly a place that hope had abandoned. In December the Environment Court granted its owner Redson Corporation, consent to demolish the building, wiping out any chance its supporters had of restoring the station and handing it a new life. That demolition is due to begin today. The station, however will not be simply bulldozed into a heap and dumped, said owner Peter Hanson “We hope to recycle and preserve as much of the old building materials as possible and we’re pleased they’ll be put to good use,� he said. His company will be gifting parts of the railway station to the Plains Vintage Railway & Historical Museum in Tinwald. Pieces include the Ashburton railway sign and the unique posts that hold the station roof made of bent railway iron. “We are looking forward to incorporating some of the old railway station building into the museum building. It’s a special part of the region’s history, it’s sad to see the building go but it’s great people will still be able to get some enjoyment from it,� president of The Ashburton Railway & Preservation Society Darryl Nelson, said. The journey to its eventual date with the demolition hammer has been long, with the building standing empty for more than 15 years as its owners struggled to find tenants. In 2010 the Environment Court held off granting consent to demolish the building to give

• Horse hit by car An Ashburton teenager wrote his car off after crashing into a horse on Fords Road on Sunday. It is understood the horse, which had escaped from a nearby paddock, was injured, but the extent of injuries was unknown, following the collision near Tinwald, about 7pm. Senior Sergeant Grant Russell, of Ashburton, said police attended the incident, but no further action was taken. Mr Russell said the owner of the horse was on site at the time and confirmed the young driver was not at fault.

• Fire calls Methven volunteer firefighters were called to a minor fire at Doms Pizza & Kebabs in Methven yesterday. The Ashburton brigade was also called to the incident on the corner of Main St and Forest Drive, but turned back en route. It is understood the fire broke out in a small room at the establishment, but was quickly put out on arrival.

Here today, gone tomorrow - Ashburton’s historic railway station ready for demolition. the Ashburton Heritage Trust an opportunity to raise community funds to buy the station. They were unable to find the $580,000 needed. Restoration of the station was estimated to cost an additional $1 million. Mr Hanson said he had kept

his options open for the building for years, but it was unfortunate that restoration and earthquake strengthening work were simply not viable. Following the demolition, work will begin immediately on a new development at the site. The

Teachers to boycott PaCT standards trial By Myles Hume Mid Canterbury teachers will join colleagues around the country and turn their backs on a much-maligned national standards trial. Yesterday, several teachers’ unions declared they would boycott a trial of the Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT), a computer entry system produced for national standards, which the Government wants all schools to be using in 2015. Mid Canterbury Principals’ Association president Neil Simons said he supported the move. Currently, teachers used their own judgment and other assessments to judge where a pupil sat in relation to national standards, however PaCT would mean that teachers “punch in the data and it spits out a result�, Mr Simons said. He said it was not common for schools to take such action, but there were fears the “inconsistent� data would be formed into league tables and introduce teacher performance pay if the PaCT tool was used. “It’s what they are doing

Neil Simons with the data that we don’t like, we have no issue with standards or expectations, but this is being used as high stakes data.� Mr Simons said he had heard the developers of PaCT were having trouble developing the software which filled schools with less confidence. “This is just another name for a national test.�0 Methven School principal Chris Murphy said a lot of the opposition had arisen because “they (the Government) are doing it to the teaching fraternity, and not with the teaching fraternity�.

“I don’t think this has got anything to do with student achievement, they feel there is an appetite for this in the electorates,� he said. The New Zealand Principals’ Federation, NZEI, the New Zealand Association of Intermediate and Middle Schools and the Catholic Principals’ Federation are leading the boycott. They said it would damage the world-renown curriculum New Zealand already possesses. “It assumes that every child is the same, learns the same way and can achieve the same results. Every parent knows that is a ridiculous assumption,� they said. A Ministry of Education spokesperson said PaCT would support teachers, and denied claims it was a national test. “A teacher advisory group has been set up to provide input into its design. “The Ministry has met hundreds of teachers and school leaders to ensure it develops and tests a tool that meets their needs. “The feedback received has helped its design and development,� the spokesperson said.

Help for Chch consents The Government will appoint technical experts to join the Christchurch City Council’s consenting department in a move to speed up its consenting process. The technical experts will be appointed from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and will work with council officers. “The team will have the authority to make changes as required,� Canterbury


Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee said. The move comes after the Government last week gave the council a two-week deadline to speed up its consenting process, saying urgent action was needed in the quakedamaged city. Building and Construction Minister Maurice Williamson said it was clear council staff wanted to “sort this issue as much as anyone and they

be working on a new project that will breathe some new life into the area, create local jobs and opportunities,� Mr Hanson said. Redson Corporation also owns Aotea New Zealand Souvenirs stores in Queenstown, Tekapo, Rotorua and Auckland.

Parking fine payment online The days of having to line up, red-faced, at the Ashburton District Council’s counter to pay your parking fines are over – you now have the anonymity of paying online. The council is introducing services to enable residents to make payments via its website and this now includes parking infringements. Further service payment options will be added through the year. Group business support manager Paul Brake said the parking payment option is part of the council’s move to provide more of its services online. “It’s a convenient and secure way to make payments with your credit or debit card. We are progressively working towards enabling residents to make payments, service requests and provide feedback online.�

Online payment services are a win-win for residents and the council; they were convenient for residents and over time would produce cost-saving efficiencies for the council, he said. “Our aim is to reduce the cost of council doing business and for savings to be passed on to the community through charges being lower than they would otherwise be.� The introduction of online payment of parking infringements will see the $2 discount for early payment disappear. The council recently removed its 2.5 per cent surcharge on credit card transactions to make the online payment option more attractive for residents. The next online payment service to be offered by the council will be dog re-registrations, which will be available from July 1.

Gym’s heart health offer to benefit foundation dangers of heart disease, it became more personal after gym member Cath Gill came to her for help after suffering a heart attack last year. For the local woman the heart attack came completely unexpectedly, but she said that after recovering the scare motivated her to improve her health, fitness and lifestyle. “Life is precious and we all need to make the most of it. The skills I learnt [at Curves gym] have become a way of life.� Heart Foundation medical director Norman Sharpe said there was no single cause of heart disease, but risk factors like being overweight, inactivity, high blood pressure or blood cholesterol and having a family history could all add up to a high risk of developing heart disease over the years. “Seventy five per cent of Kiwi women are unaware that heart disease is their number one killer, so we’d like to thank Curves Ashburton for helping us raise awareness.� The offer applies to any new members at Curves Ashburton until Saturday, June 22.

Viv Williams from Curves Ashburton said that the aim was to raise awareness of the disease and help women reduce the risk of contracting it. “I like the image of having your heart in your hands – because it really is entirely up to you.� She said that heart disease was the number one killer of New Zealand women, killing more than four times as many women as breast cancer. “Many of our members are shocked to learn that. So many New Zealand women come to Curves to help lower their cholesterol and blood pressure levels and in turn, live a healthier life.� And while she was always aware of the

On long road to restoration By Sue Newman After years of neglect and damage by the elements, the buildings that make up Ashburton’s Chinese settlement are beginning the long road to restoration. Earlier this year the settlement on its five acre block of land was gifted to the Ashburton District Council to control and manage, while ownership of the site will remain vested in the Ng King family. The council applied for $7500 in seed funding from the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust to begin the long road towards preserving buildings on the site. Council property manager John Rooney said that the money would be used to restore a large outdoor oven and to stabilise as many of the elderly buildings as possible to a point where decisions could be made on their restoration. “The oven is almost a national treasure and the other buildings have high significance too, particularly the fruit shop. One of the target areas of poll tax funding was any Chinese market gardening history, so the timing is right.” Mr Rooney said it was unlikely that every building on the site would be restored, but among others the council would be targeting significant buildings such as the single men’s sleeping quarters and a workshop that also doubled as a school room. For restoration, the council will be seeking funds from a range of sources. Money would not come from rates for this work, he said. “This won’t happen over night. There’s a lot of interest in the project but we won’t be able to do anything other than stabilise these buildings unless we get some money in. At least with this first funding we can put some of the buildings into a situation where they won’t deteriorate further.” The council was fortunate to members of the Ng King families in the district as a source of information for restoration work, Mr Rooney said. Preliminary examination of the historic oven indicated it was in reasonable condition, with much of the original brickwork still in place. In its hey day the settlement was a thriving market garden and was home to up to 80 people. Ownership of the land remained with the families of the original Chinese settlers, but that multiple ownership made it almost impossible to sell. When the market garden closed in 1961 the land became a wilderness on the town boundary, but one of the settlers’ descendents, Yep Ng negotiated a deal that would see the land remain in family ownership but for its future to be as a public reserve as a celebration of the contribution of the Chinese people to the Ashburton District.

What is the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust? New Zealand imposed a poll tax on Chinese immigrants entering New Zealand during the 19th and early 20th centuries. This was effectively lifted in the 1930s following the invasion of China by Japan, and was finally repealed in 1944. Prime Minister at the time

Helen Clark offered New Zealand’s Chinese community an official apology in February 2002, for the actions of previous governments that had imposed the poll tax. Poll tax payers and their descendants comprise the ‘early settler’ Chinese community. A community linked by family and

village networks, and common geographic origin (all come from a cluster of counties in the south of Guangdong [Canton] province). From 1866 to 1960 all Chinese New Zealanders were part of this community. Immigration policy changes from 1960 onwards led to the migration of Chinese people

unconnected to the early settler community. A Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust (CPTHT) was established in 2004 with the Government paying in $5 million as a gesture of reconciliation in support of the formal apology. It is administered by the Department of Internal Affairs

and is intended as a gesture of goodwill to poll tax payers, their descendants and future generations, in recognition of the hardship caused by the poll tax and other discriminatory legislation. The trust also seeks to create understanding in the wider Chinese community and New Zealand society as a whole.

Wrap up, prepare for worst, snow’s afoot I

t’s time to stock up the cupboards, fill the gas bottle and generally prepare to hunker down, with the heaviest snow storm in 20 years predicted to be bearing down on the South Island. Mid Canterbury is right on the radar, and that’s an intimidating prospect, when we consider that the area south of the Rakaia River experienced an exceptional snow storm on June 12, 2006.

OUR VIEW Snow depths were greater than the 1973 and 1967 storms, and similar to those of a 1945 event; but in some areas much deeper. In 2006, the Ashburton district had the greatest maximum snow depth on record. Insurers estimated that claims in the South Island

exceeded $35 million, much of which would have come from the Canterbury region. On that morning residents across the district awoke to a thick blanket of snow; and a lot were caught out. Many businesses, including the Guardian, were stopped in their tracks by widespread power outages.

Stocks of generators, gas heaters, portable cookers, batteries and candles were

quickly in short supply. Rural people were hardest hit, in particular farming families, with cows to milk and calves to feed – and holed in by road closures.

The 41-year-old man arrived at the Westpac branch on Great South Rd in Penrose in a wheelchair about 4.30pm yesterday, carrying a gun. Nine bank employees were initially taken hostage, but released about 6pm, and police spent until 9.45pm negotiating with the man before he was apprehended and taken to Auckland Central Police station, Inspector Lou Alofa said. “All employees of the bank were uninjured. They were shaken but uninjured.” Mr Aloha said the man was unhurt and police were now looking at possible charges. He arrived in a wheelchair, but police would not say whether he was disabled.

Another reason for this success was that the community stayed united which was so encouraging. People wrote letters of objection and concern to politicians and through the Guardian.

Guy family farm ponds dredged By Andrew Koubaridis


earthquakes also spelled out the necessity of being prepared for natural catastrophes – and again, for the better part, brought out the best in human nature. The weather gurus have admitted to not knowing just how severe the storm predicted to hit on Thursday and Friday might be, but we should all be prepared. And ready to help out our neighbours where necessary.

The Christchurch

Police investigating the murder of Scott Guy have dredged effluent ponds on the Guy family farm that many believed would hold the key to finding the killer. The operation to dredge the ponds has been completed in the past fortnight - but has found nothing of significance. Police spent nine days sifting through 400 to 500 tonnes of mud and silt - something many people, including Mr Guy’s widow Kylee, have been wanting to see happen - after family members said it was an “issue” for them. The search has confirmed a long-held police view that no evidence relating to the murder would be found in the ponds and will be a blow to those who hoped they would provide fresh

clues as to who killed Scott Guy. There has been speculation that the murder weapon or other items relating to the investigation could have been hidden in the ponds, that were not dredged during the nine-month murder inquiry. Mr Guy was gunned down on his driveway on July 8, 2010. After a high-profile investigation police charged his brother-in-law Ewen Macdonald with the murder, alleging he was motivated by a fear of losing his place on the family farm after years of tension and feuding. Macdonald was acquitted of the murder by a High Court jury almost a year ago. He is serving a jail sentence for crimes he admitted committing against Scott and Kylee Guy but has always maintained he did not kill him. Superintendent Sue Schwalger,

who led the murder investigation, said yesterday no new information led to police deciding to dredge the ponds. Only cattle ear tags and farm rubbish were found. “Police made the decision to dredge the ponds after it was flagged by the family and other interested parties as a potential issue. Police wanted to provide reassurance to the family and others that there was nothing of interest in the ponds.” She said the dredging would provide further reassurance to the family and public the police investigation was thorough. The file would remain open and police wanted to hear from anyone who had any information on the case. Police said they have maintained close contact with the family since the trial ended and dredging the ponds had been dis-

cussed a number of times. “The key to any investigation is to have an open mind. As with the original investigation police spent many hours investigating and eliminating the numerous rumours and speculation, so after further consideration of a range of views and discussions with Kylee and the Guy family police decided to take this step.” Ms Schwalger said the dredging took place alongside routine maintenance on the farm. In a statement, Scott’s parents Bryan and Jo said: “The question of draining the ponds has been raised on a few occasions ... The police had asked if they could take the opportunity to dredge the silt once the water had been drained. We were happy to co-operate with the request to provide an answer, and put that particular question to rest.” - APNZ

Sex report slams Kiwi lessons By Vaimoana Tapaleao Sex education is promoting sexual behaviour among young people and not showing all the risks, a new report claims. The report, released today, concludes that the overall message to young people is that sex is okay as long as you use a condom. But schools and sex education providers say the report - commissioned by conservative lobby group Family First - is sometimes homophobic and fails to recognise the changing world in which young people live. R18: Sexuality Education in New

Zealand: A Critical Review was the work of United States psychiatrist Dr Miriam Grossman. She analysed key resources recommended to Kiwi adolescents including those offered by the Family Planning Association and the Aids Foundation. “While most of these resources claim to promote sexual health, we find, overall, little encouragement of restraint or self-discipline. Instead, students are informed that at any age, sexual freedom is a right,” said Dr Grossman. “Sex is seen as risky only when it’s unprotected. The efficacy of condoms is overstated - in some cases, vastly so. Young people are led to believe that sex is easily

divorced from emotional attachment. Worst of all, critical life-anddeath information is distorted or ignored.” Dr Grossman regularly speaks about sex education in the US but she has come under fire because of her strongly conservative views and her church affiliations. She participates in several Christian right-winged organisations. Themes and concerns raised in the report included sexual activities described too explicitly and the lack of information about the anatomical differences between men and women and how sex affected them differently; particularly teen-

age girls. Anal sex and the possible risks associated with it were not fully revealed in resources; which seemed to “white-wash” the possible diseases and consequences - both physically and emotionally - associated with having sex. Shaun Robinson, executive director of the Aids Foundation, said the resources analysed were not out to promote high-risk behaviour, but to change it. The foundation aimed to change risky behaviours among gay men and in doing so, prevent diseases, namely HIV. “It encourages behaviour change - celebrating condoms as a normalised part of sex.” - APNZ

inside were not threatened directly. The man was threatening to harm himself and had asked for a friend to be brought to the scene, but the nominated friend could not be located, police said in a statement. He was held in custody overnight and will appear in the Auckland District Court today where he will likely be charged with firearms offences. “No shots were fired throughout the incident which was eventually resolved by direct negotiation.” Ten children and three staff from a nearby day care centre had been allowed to leave with police help about 8pm. The centre was inside a cordoned area so was not accessible to the children’s parents. Police earlier issued a statement advising motorists to avoid the area between Ellerslie Panmure Highway and Rockfield Rd due to an incident and buses were not allowed to stop in the area. - APNZ

Pike families ‘gutted’ trial will be held in Wellington By Laura Mills and Nicholas McBride The trial of former Pike River Coal chief executive Peter Whittall relating to the 2010 mining disaster that claimed 29 lives will be moved to Wellington. Proceedings will be live streamed. In a reserved judgment today, Judge Jane Farish noted there would be 113 witnesses in a complex and detailed case that was expected to take several months. Given the complexity and length of the trial, she said she was satisfied it was in the interests of justice to transfer the proceedings. The public interest would be met by streaming the trial live on the internet. Pike River families’ spokesman Bernie Monk said he was “absolutely gutted”, noting the decision could not be appealed by the families because the case had been brought by the former Labour Department. The ruling said there were 600,000 documents, one alone comprising 20,000 e-mails. Mr Whittall was in charge of the mine at the time of the disaster that claimed 29 men’s lives. He started as mine manager in 2005, and although he had shifted to Wellington by January 2010, he retained a shared office in Greymouth and travelled to the mine weekly. One example of case law states that the courts have always required a strong reason for moving a trial from the original community concerned. Mr Whittall’s lawyer Stuart Grieve accepted there was significant community interest in hearing the case in Greymouth. However, he said to an extent that had been served by the Royal Commission of Inquiry, and the court case against Valley Longwall Drilling and Pike River Coal Ltd. He argued the defence would require facilities to be able to brief witnesses, and have access to adequate IT facilities. There were limited flights from Christchurch to Hokitika, and overseas witnesses would have to come to Greymouth by way of Wellington or Christchurch. The logistical challenges would be prejudicial to Mr Whittall’s right to prepare and present his defence and his right to a fair trial. Mr Grieve said Mr Whittall lived in Wellington with his wife and children, and helped “greatly” running the family home. When Mr Whittall had been in

Peter Whittall Greymouth since the mine disaster he had faced “significant animosity”, as had his legal team. If the hearing was in Greymouth, he would be put under “significant stress”. Judge Farish said she had seen some of the hostility directed at Valley Longwall. Crown prosecutor Brent Stanaway, representing the Department of Labour, argued that many of the families of the 29 dead generally resided in Greymouth. If they wanted to attend the trial in Wellington, it would be costly. Mr Whittall’s personal safety would be dealt with by the courts and adequate security could be put in place. But Judge Farish ruled that the case was complex, the documents voluminous and the trial could last up to 16 weeks. Responding yesterday, Mr Monk said: “It has made us angry and more determined.” With Mr Whittall prepared to summon so many witnesses, he said he could understand why the decision was made but that did not make it any easier to accept. “From a logistical point of view I can understand the judge’s decision. We’ve just got to live with it ... But it’s not the same, watching it on the live feed.” He described the situation as “an endless battle” for the families of the dead men. “All I want is accountability and I’m yet to see it.” Some family members had indicated that they would make the trip so they could look the witnesses in the eye, Mr Monk said. Mr Whittall faces 12 charges under the Health and Safety in Employment Act. Both parties agreed they could not commence a defended hearing before January or February 2014. - APNZ

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Tuesday, June 18, 2013


Bombings kill 51 in Iraq A blistering string of apparently co-ordinated bombings and a shooting across Iraq killed at least 51 and wounded dozens yesterday, spreading fear throughout the country in a wave of violence that is raising the prospect of a return to widespread sectarian killing a decade after a US-led invasion. Violence has spiked sharply in Iraq in recent months, with the death toll rising to levels not seen since 2008. Nearly 2000 have been killed since the start of April, including more than 180 this month. The surge in bloodshed accompanies rising sectarian tensions within Iraq and growing concerns that its unrest is being fanned by the Syrian civil war raging next door. One of the deadliest attacks came in the evening when a suicide bomber blew himself up inside a cafe packed with young people in the largely Shiite neighbourhood of al-Ameen in south-eastern Baghdad. The attack killed 11 and wounded 25, according to police. Clothes shop owner Saif Hameed, 24, was watching TV at home when he heard the blast nearby. He saw several of the wounded being loaded into ambulances. “It seems the terrorists are targeting any place they can, no matter what it is,” he said. “The main things for them are to kill as many Iraqis as they can and keep the people living in fear.” Most of yesterday’s car bombs hit Shiite-majority areas and caused most of the casualties. The blasts hit half a dozen cities and towns in the south and centre of the country. There was no claim of responsibility for any of the attacks, but they bore the hallmark of al-Qaida in Iraq, which uses car bombs, suicide bombers and co-ordinated attacks, most aimed at security forces and members of Iraq’s

Shiite majority. The US Embassy condemned the attacks, saying it stands with Iraqis “who seek to live in peace and who reject cowardly acts of terrorism such as this”. The US withdrew its last combat troops from Iraq in December 2011, though a small number remain as an arm of the embassy to provide training and facilitate arms sales. Yesterday’s blasts began with a parked car bomb exploding early in the morning in the industrial area of the city of Kut, killing six people and wounding 15 others.

That was followed by another car bomb outside the city that targeted construction workers. It killed five and wounded 12, according to police. In a teahouse hit by one of the blasts, a blood-stained tribal headdress and slippers were strewn on the floor, alongside overturned chair and couches. Kut is 160km south-east of Baghdad. In the oil-rich city of Basra in southern Iraq, a car bomb exploded on a busy downtown street. As police and rescuers rushed to the scene of the initial blast, a second car exploded. Six peo-

ple were reported killed. Cleaners were seen sweeping up pieces of the car bomb, which damaged nearby cars and shops. About an hour later, parked car bombs ripped through two neighbourhoods in the southern city of Nasiriyah, 320km south-east of Baghdad, killing two and wounding 19, police said. In the Shiite holy city of Najaf, 160km south of Baghdad, a blast struck a produce market, killing eight and wounding 28. Watermelons, tomatoes and apples were seen scattered on the ground.  – AP

and the Bank of Scotland were part of a consortium that called in receivers KordaMentha. But the key role for receivers managing the going concern will be selling it back to a new entity that has shed potential obligations to the IRD. Senior lenders – owed around $400 million – have formed a new company with the debt having been reduced from $700 million to $100 million

along the way. The lenders – which also includes Morgan Stanley, hedge funds TPG Oaktree Capital Management – have been talking about a restructuring for months and with bankers at the start of the year. KordaMentha would not speculate on timelines. But given the same parties are involved in both the disposal and the purchase of the assets is not expected

that the second part of the deal – going from receivership to the new entity – should not take long. Michael Stiassny of KordaMentha said the potential obligation to Inland Revenue Department taxes will be “left behind” in the changeover. MediaWorks, formerly owned by Canadian company CanWest, has provisioned more than $22 million for the years between 2002 and 2004.

The IRD declined to comment at publication time about the status of the dispute which is over tax avoidance. As reported in the Herald previously, the new company has two directors appointed Rod McGeoch and reality queen Julie Christie. McGeoch and Christie are likely to seek a minority shareholding in the new firm once it has transferred from KordaMentha.  – APNZ

The United States will only engage in “real” talks with North Korea and will judge actions, not Pyongyang’s “nice words” about wanting high-level negotiations, a senior US official said yesterday. Any talks “have to be based on them living up to their obligations” on proliferation, nuclear weapons, smuggling and other issues, White House Chief of Staff Dennis McDonough said. “We’ll judge them by their actions, not by the nice words that we heard yesterday,” he said, when asked about a North Korean proposal for high-level negotiations on the denuclearisation of the divided peninsula. “The bottom line is they’re not going to be able to talk their way out of very significant sanctions they’re under now, sanc-

New Zealand consumer confidence surged to its highest level in three years in June, buoyed by improving economic prospects, rising house values, low interest rates and falling prices, according to the latest Westpac McDermott-Miller Consumer Confidence survey. The index jumped to 116.6 in the June quarter, up from 110.8 in March and the highest level since June 2010 when it touched 119.3. The survey of 1568 households took place June 1 to 10. A reading above 100 indicates more optimists than pessimists. “People are shifting out of saving mode and into spending mode,” Westpac chief economist Dominick Stephens said in a statement. “The survey also chimes with our longheld view that low interest rates and a rising housing market would boost spending.” New Zealand’s central bank last week left the official cash rate at its record-low 2.5 per cent as governor Graeme Wheeler eyes a bubbling property market with its potential to fuel debt-driven consumer spending if households feel wealthier, especially because of the dampening effect of an “over-valued” kiwi dollar on the price of imports. The consumer confidence survey showed the number of people who would rather spend than save a cash windfall is the highest since 2004. The

shift was most pronounced among older households and in Auckland, which had benefited from the housing market upturn. Most components of the index rose with the biggest improvement in households’ near-term economic outlook. The net percentage of households expecting good times over the coming year surged to 13.8 from negative 5.8, the first positive reading since June 2010. “Economic optimism has surged, prices for many consumer goods have been falling and sentiment in rural regions has picked up as the focus shifts from the immediate impact of drought tot the prospect of higher dairy payouts,” Stephens said. The survey showed a net 10.1 per cent expect their own finances to improve, up from 7.2 in the previous survey. A net 35.4 expect their longerterm economic outlook to improve, up from 32.1, and a net 34.4 per cent thought now is a good time to buy a major household item, up from 30.8. Meanwhile, households’ assessment of their current financial situation slipped to negative 10.8 from negative 10.4, although it remains the second highest level since December 2007. A high level of consumer optimism had been sustained for three consecutive quarters and was now widely based with almost all demographic and income categories of consumers, said Richard Miller, managing director of strategy planning and economics consultancy McDermott Miller. – APNZ

Fonterra’s Darfield plant.

Fonterra to beef up Taranaki supply Fonterra Cooperative Group, the world’s biggest dairy exporter, will spend $30 million beefing up its dry distribution centre in Taranaki as it clamps down on freight costs. The Auckland-based co-operative is upgrading its Whareroa site, having spent $23 million improving the facility’s coolstore since 2011, it said in a statement. The plan is to reduce costs by keeping product stored near processing

plants, and within easy access to ports. Construction is expected to be completed by August next year. “This investment at our Whareroa facility will improve our logistics network’s storage capacity and address existing capacity restraints in the region,” director of logistics Mark Leslie said. “This means we are able to reduce the number of freight movements from where a product is manufactured

through to delivery to the customer which reduces our carbon footprint and ultimately saves on transport costs.” Fonterra is on a savings drive this year to strip out up to $65 million a year by eliminating 300 jobs by centralising services, cutting duplication and simplifying management structures. Units in the Fonterra Shareholders’ Fund fell 0.4 per cent to $7.20 yesterday.  – APNZ

A new chairman takes Young Farmers reins Cole Groves has been voted the new chairman for New Zealand Young Farmers. He takes the helm after Paul Olsen who stepped down from his two-year term. “It’s a fantastic group of people,” Mr Groves said. “It’s a big honour”. Mr Groves previously served on the board as an elected member for two years, and he views his new appointment as an opportunity to give back to an organisation that has given him plenty. “I’ve gotten so much out of my involvement with Young Farmers; from selfdevelopment to growing my business contacts,” he said. The twenty-six-year old dairy farmer from Pleasant Point considers Young Farmers an integral part of New Zealand’s agriculture industry. “Young Farmers tends to act as a glue for the industry - we help develop the future leaders of agriculture and contribute to a skilled and capable workforce,” he said. “Young Farmers has come a long way. Industry partners are now coming to us

whereas five years ago we were the ones going to them”, he said. “The success has also been driven by our increasing membership, dedicated volunteers, our office staff and the growing network of past members.” Retention of members is high on the list of priorities for the new chairman. “It’s important to make sure there is a flow through from all the programs and keep members in the ‘pipeline’ of Young Farmers,” Mr Groves said. Engagement is paramount in order to help grow membership and keep people involved in Young Farmers he says. “Our (the board’s) goal is to involve the members more. Members need to feel connected; they need to believe in

and flexible delivery of the Bovine TB management plan and the NAIT scheme,” MPI director of preparedness and partnerships David Hayes said. “The revised corporate structure will deliver a range of outcomes to protect and enhance the primary sector. This new structure will leverage the competencies and expertise already developed within AHB and NAIT, and the strong partnership with the Ministry for Primary Industries.” “It is envisaged that new strategies and services would be developed in areas such as pest and risk management, design and delivery of partnership programmes between crown and industry, and the delivery of a combined ‘farmer facing’ contact centre and other outreach services.”

• Market report

LAMB Lamb throughput has lifted slightly in the North Island over the past few weeks, but this has been more than offset by the steady seasonal decline in processing in the South Island. Farmgate prices in the North Island have been higher than in the South recently. However it’s likely that gap will start closing as procurement pressure mounts in the South. Meanwhile, mutton slaughter rates remain low, but due to heavy culling earlier in the season the NZ total is 22 per cent ahead of the same point last year. Winter lamb contracts are generating interest at the moment, with some up to $5.85/kg, which is helping paint a positive picture for finishers. Improving schedules and the prospect of a lamb shortage have helped keep the store market supported at reasonable levels.

BEEF The value of the NZ dollar against the US currency remains one of the few positive factors in NZ beef markets at present, although it has risen above the US$0.80 mark again. US prices have continued trending lower. Imported 95CL bull meat prices collected by Agrifax are now at their lowest level since October 2011, while 90CL cow hasn’t been this low since November 2010. Australia shipped the most beef ever in a single month in June, totaling over 100,000 tonnes for the first time. There’s little sign of processing slowing, with companies reported to be heavily booked into July and August. There hasn’t been an increase in shipments to the US, but the huge volumes out of Australia are putting pressure on virtually every other New Zealand beef market, particularly those in Asia.

VENISON Venison markets are still in a quiet period of the year with the major European customers not buying in large quantities. Typically this time of year more than 90 per cent is exported frozen rather than chilled. The percentage of hinds killed has been higher than normal for the start of the year, which suggests higher production and reduced breeding herds due to the drought. The schedule showed the first signs of lifting this for the end of year demand. Over the last five years the schedule has been 13 to 14 per cent higher in October than at this time of year, so deer farmers will have to weigh up the cost of feed over winter versus the expected price increase. It seems at this point many are reducing herd sizes to reduce supplementary feed costs where grass won’t cover. There have been suggestions that there will be more demand in the United States this year as its economy recovers and the top end restaurant markets will be more accessible. In the six months to April exports of venison to the US were up 4 per cent year on year, compared to a 13 per cent drop overall in the same period. The US, however, only accounts for about 10 per cent of New Zealand’s total exports.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Tuesday, June 18, 2013



When gas ruled in Ashburton By Michael Hanrahan


lder Ashburton residents will recall a large complex of industrial buildings near the intersection of East Street and Walnut Avenue. It was the Ashburton gasworks. Built in 1879 it supplied gas for cooking, lighting, heating and industrial uses to many parts of Ashburton for about 90 years. The Ashburton Gas Company was formed in late 1878, with the works being built and equipment imported in record time, so as to be able to supply gas by August 1879. Along with building the works, cast iron pipes had to be laid through the streets to supply gas to the initial suppliers. A six-inch pipe was laid along East Street to Havelock Street, then five inchs to Tancred Street, reducing to four inch to the Ashburton Hotel on the South Street corner. The total length of piping laid initially was three and a half miles, all the pipes and much of the equipment coming from England. To get things to that stage £6000 had been spent, an enormous sum for the time. Once the gas was flowing through the pipes it supplied initially only 13 consumers and 17 street lights. One of the prime movers behind the enterprise was Ashburton’s first mayor, Thomas Bullock, who was company chairman from 1878 until 1919. This was not the only example of the company having long-serving board members and staff. John Lewis Causey was the first engineer/manager. He came to Ashburton from the Christchurch gasworks, and worked for the company for 10 years, his son then taking over for a further 20 years. Joseph Ward was the company secretary from 1878 until 1901 when he was succeeded by Arthur Pilbrow. The largest item of the plant was a 20,000 cubic foot gas tank, or gasometer, which stored gas and pressurised it to flow through the mains. Other components included four purifiers, a condenser, a scrubber and a hydraulic main, all purchased from the Christchurch Gas Company. The retort house had space for 31 nine-foot retorts but only six smaller ones were installed at the start. A 48-foot high chimney was attached to the retorts. A manager’s house was built, facing Walnut Avenue. A railway siding curved away from the works, crossing East Street, to enter the rail yard just north of Walnut Avenue. West Coast coal was brought in this way until the end of production. Being a private company that supplied gas to public facilities such as street lights, the company was bound to get caught up in local politics at times. In the early 1900s the introduction of electricity was seen as a threat. One major shareholder, Hugo Friedlander, was also a councillor. He assisted with a move on the council’s part to purchase the company, but it foundered on conditions. The company asked for £15,000, the council came back with an offer of £13,800, the company agreed on condition company shareholders and ratepayers agreed, but the council objected to the condition. When a public meeting was held on the issue in 1904 a vote to raise a loan to buy the gas company was lost. A subsequent poll confirmed the result. Three years later a second attempt to sell the company to the council at the same price as in 1904 failed because council wanted it reduced by the amount

The council then let a contract for electric street lighting. The next and final major spat occurred in 1953, when the Government was offering subsidies to gas companies to cover their losses. This was because electricity was in short supply as the country expanded rapidly following World War Two and the government saw gas as being one way of filling the gap. The Ashburton Gas Company




ARIES (Mar 21st Apr 20th) Friendly influences and potential business successes make for an excellent opportunity to get ahead.

saw their subsidy as being insufficient and threatened to cease production to force the government’s hand. It had the opposite effect. The government gave the Ashburton Electric Power Board, an elected local body, a grant and an interest–free loan, allowing it to take over the gas company. The company shareholders received only 10/- in the pound and the board became the Ashburton Electric Power & Gas Board. The board continued to oper-

ate the gas works, but it became increasingly run down as the demand for gas decreased and electricity became more readily available following the construction of hydro-electric dams on the Clutha, Waitaki and Waikato rivers. By the early 1970s the gasworks had closed and the site became increasingly derelict. Demolition was under way early in 1975 but it was more than a year before the site was finally cleared.

Justin Rose hoists the trophy aloft after winning the US Open at Merion, pushing Phil Mickelson into his sixth runner-up spot.

Rose in full bloom as Day fades away By Ben Everill Justin Rose thanked Masters champion Adam Scott for an extra dose of belief after he became the first Englishman in 43 years to win the US Open. Rose closed with an even-par round of 70 to finish at one-over-par 281 for the championship, two clear of now six-time US Open runner-up Phil Mickelson and Australia’s two-time US Open bridesmaid Jason Day. Mickelson, on his 43rd birthday, started with a one-shot lead but shot 74 while Day closed with a 71 to finish tied second at three-over 283. American trio Jason Dufner (67), Billy Horschel (74) and Hunter Mahan (75) plus South African Ernie Els (69) finished tied fourth at 285. “It feels fantastic,� Rose said. “I committed myself to the process this week and it feels absolutely amazing. “It’s a moment where you can look back and think childhood dreams have come true. “I took a lot of encouragement from Adam Scott winning the Masters. “He sent me a fantastic text message after the Masters and he said, ‘your time is coming soon’, and he is a wise man.�

Rose, aged 32 like Scott, has been knocking on the door at majors since bursting on the scene as a 17-year-old amateur at the 1998 British Open, where he tied fourth. He rode a Merion roller-coaster on the final day with five birdies and as many bogeys but ultimately prevailed to become the first Englishman to win a major since Nick Faldo took out the 1996 Masters and the first to win a US Open champion since Tony Jacklin in 1970. A great drive down the historic 18th and an approach shot from right near the famous Ben Hogan one iron sign clinched the trophy for Rose. Earlier, Day had joined Rose for the lead with a birdie on the 10th hole. But bogeys on 11, 14 and 18 dropped him back off the pace in very tough conditions. Faced with a three-and-a-half foot putt for par on the last for any chance at a playoff, Day watched in horror as the ball hooked around the cup and out, releasing any real pressure on Rose behind him. “I hit a great bunker shot, tried to go for the hole-out and just went a little bit past. I didn’t expect it (the putt) to hang out on the lip so much and unfortunately just lipped out,� Day said. “But very happy with how I handled

myself today. As long as I keep knocking on the door, I think I’ll win a major here soon.� Mickelson, the heavy crowd favourite on his birthday, dropped three shots in his final six holes, including the 18th where he had one last chance to chip in for a playoff, but missed and then failed to nail the comeback putt. He was a US Open bridesmaid previously to Payne Stewart in 1999 at Pinehurst, Tiger Woods in 2002 at Bethpage Black, Retief Goosen in 2004 at Shinnecock, Australian Geoff Ogilvy in 2006 at Winged Foot and Lucas Glover in 2009 at Bethpage Black. “For me, it’s very heartbreaking,� he said. “This could have been a really big turnaround for me on how I look at the US Open and the tournament that I’d like to win, after having so many good opportunities.� Australian John Senden, who briefly held the outright lead in round three, finished with 74 to be eight shots off the pace in a tie for 15th. Mat Goggin (73) finished in a tie for 21st at 11-over while Ogilvy (72) was in at 13-over. Scott couldn’t produce his Augusta magic, closing with a 75 to be 15-over and Alistair Presnell (79) rounded out the Aussies at 23-over. - AAP

Last-ditch effort for Tour selection By Jonathan Leask With the 2013 Tour de France start less than two weeks away, Ashburton cyclist Hayden Roulston looked to make one final statement in favour of his selection in the uphill time trial to conclude the Tour de Suisse yesterday morning. All of the riders from Radioshack Leopard Trek took the opportunity to test themselves but the stage went to Rui Da Costa (Movistar) who mounted a successful defence of his Tour de Suisse title, winning the individual time trial to claim the final yellow jersey.

Roulston clocked a solid 57:01 to be 66th, one place behind team-mate Fabian Cancellara, to be 82nd overall on the General Classification (GC). The best GC rider on RSLT was Maxime Monfort rounding out the top 20. Andy Schleck made his return to European racing on the tour putting a solid effort to be 40th overall. Andreas Loden was 63rd, Jens Voight 64th and Gregory Rast 70 after his win on stage six. The riders all begin their final preparations for the Tour de France which starts on June 29, with the team yet to be announced.

Hayden Roulston leads the peloton

Fielding errors cost Black Caps

• Change of scenery Methven’s Julia Grant came in sixth in the UK Ironman 70.3. After racing in the humid tropical conditions and temperatures of almost 30 degrees in Hawaii two weeks earlier, Grant met a very different setting in Wimbleball, England with overcast skies and a brisk 9 degrees. Great Britain’s Holly Lawrence led by two minutes out of the water but lost time on the bike and was hauled in on the run by defending champ Eimear Mullan. Grant was 25 seconds behind Muller out of the 1.9km swim, but Ireland’s Mullan powered through the 90km bike in 2 hour 55.08m.

Andrew Alderson Kane Williamson’s batting brought New Zealand within 10 runs of victory but the overall fielding effort let them down in the Champions Trophy loss to England. New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum reflected on a tournament where the side’s fate now hangs on Australia narrowly beating Sri Lanka in this morning’s game. New Zealand can only go through on run rate. “We bowled brilliantly, fielded okay and our batting needs work. We had an opportunity today and passed it up. “It’s tough when you know if it rains it’ll work out for you but we were clear in our messages that we had a huge job to do if we got on the park. I thought we did a good job with the ball, especially in the latter part of that innings, to restrict them to 169. “We were comfortable chasing that total with one short side [to the field] and the pitch wasn’t too bad. “They bowled brilliantly at the start with good pace and put us under pressure. “It’s testament to the way Kane and Corey [Anderson] played that we got as close as we did. I thought Corey did a great job [on ODI debut after three T20 appearances in South Africa] with limited opportunity. “He showed encouraging signs. For a little while, I thought they were going to get it done.” Williamson (67 off 54 balls) and Anderson (30 off 24 balls) put on 73 for the sixth wicket. It was a heroic rearguard action after the team had slumped to 62 for five in the 14th over. “When we needed 10-an-over I knew we were in it,” Williamson said. “It was a shame we lost wickets at key times and couldn’t clear the rope. We gained momentum and lost it.” Williamson’s dismissal was the turning point. Debate surrounded whether bowl-

• Good result for Aimee Mount Hutt College’s Aimee Elliott produced a top result in the National Secondary Schools’ Cross Country Championships held at the Halswell Quarry in Christchurch on Saturday. Competing in the year 9 girls’ 3km race Elliott came in 12th overall in a time of 11.42, with Michaela Walker of Kapiti College winning in 10.58 out of a field of 91 runners. Mt Hutt’s Assina Dalglish was 40th in a time of 12.17 in the 3km junior girls’ race. Ashburton College’s Cameron Jopson was 70th in a time of 11.34 in the 3km year 9 boys while in the senior girls Ashburton College’s Emma Waite was 127th out of 142 with a time of 17.27 over the 4km course.

The Black Caps celebrate as Daniel Vettori removes Eoin Morgan. er Stuart Broad’s foot had been behind the popping crease when the New Zealander hit a steepler to cover. A no-ball check said it was, but it was far from definitive. “It was close but we didn’t have a problem with benefit of the doubt to the bowler,” McCullum said. England captain Alastair Cook was equally ambivalent: “Broady said it might be close. I did not realise it was quite that close. It looked like there was a part of his foot landed behind the line on the big screen and then he pushed forward. “Both sides probably saw it differently. I think on those decisions you have to go with the umpire’s call. If he had given it as a no ball I don’t think we could have many complaints.” Cook’s 64 off 47 balls, from a player seldom used in the T20-style format, was a revelation. “I found it hard knowing what a good score was. “Maybe we set ourselves too high a target at 180-190 because we lost seven wickets for 36 runs. It’s important you strike early when you are defending 170 and the first four overs was fantastic bowling from Jimmy [Anderson] and Broady. “Obviously it was a good partnership from Anderson and Williamson

but we felt in control. With a small boundary [to one side] there was always the chance he could go berserk at the end. Twenty-four overs can be a nerve-racking time for a captain.” Ross Taylor’s dismissal, using up the team’s sole decision review after being adjudged lbw to Tim Bresnan at the end of the seventh over, exposed the middle order without insurance. The way Taylor instantly chose to review gave the impression he must have hit the cover off it. He hadn’t. McCullum was fine with his call: “It was definitely an option, both were ‘umpire calls’ [on the DRS] hitting outside and going over. “That tells me it was worth reviewing.” Equally McCullum didn’t blame older brother Nathan for dropping Cook three times on 14, 37 and 45, despite taking four catches in total. “The ball kept following him around. He’s a brilliant fielder and today he dropped a couple but he’s still up in terms of fielding ability. I won’t begrudge him for that.” New Zealand was left to observe Australia against Sri Lanka with interest. “We’d love Australia to play some excellent cricket, but obviously not too good,” McCullum quipped.-HOS

Bowlers roll up for singles crown Rod Webb rolls up at the Ken Hampton singles at the Ashburton Indoor Bowls Stadium on Sunday. Gaynor Hurst came out on top with a 150-8 win in the final as for the second year in a row Mark Sheard finished runner-up, going down to Michael Lawson in 2012. Hurst and Sheard both had narrow escapes in the semi-finals getting past Ken Mackenzie and Graham Chapman by one-point each. In the plate Kevin Smith got up over Gaylene Smith. The stadium will be busy again this Sunday with the Championship Pairs title up for grabs, which was won by Grant Wilson and Robyn Atkinson last year.

Carter key as All Blacks aim for next level By Patrick McKendry Dan Carter’s return to rugby on Saturday will coincide with an expectation that his backline reaches even greater heights in the third test against France in New Plymouth. Many believe the All Blacks executed their game plan perfectly in the 30-0 victory in Christchurch on Saturday. The clever kicks into space topped off by two brilliant counter-attacking tries in the second half amounted to a demolition job in a city well used to them in recent years. But backs coach Ian Foster said his men were a long way off what

Training cancelled for injury-hit Blues By Joe Barton NSW are limping towards next week’s potential series-clinching State of Origin clash with training cancelled yesterday due to a lack of fit players. The Blues had planned to have their first hit-out ahead of game two, but pulled the pin at the last minute with just seven fit players ready to take the field. Their walking wounded is in addition to game one fullback Jarryd Hayne, who ruled himself out with a hamstring injury before the team naming on Sunday. Several of the injured Blues stars, including vice-captain Robbie Farah and back-rowers Anthony Watmough and Greg Bird, declared their fitness for the June 26 clash but that didn’t extend to yesterday’s session. Farah said he would need to be monitored by the NSW medical staff before getting final clearance on the cheekbone injury suffered in Origin one, but remained “super” confident of facing the Maroons. Watmough wanted to break into a run yesterday, but was told it would increase the chance of re-injuring


his badly corked thigh. He praised his club doctor at Manly for having him in good shape coming into the camp despite suffering the injury on Friday playing against Canterbury. “I’d run today if I could, but they’ll hold me back,” Watmough said yesterday. “We’ll do some other training but we’ll stay off the legs. “Because it was such a big area that bled, there’s a big chance they can re-occur if you don’t look after them. “... It takes a lot to miss an Origin. I was in some pain, there’s no doubt about that. “But our physio, and our doc, they hit it with a bit of adrenaline straight away to stop the bleeding. “We’ve done everything we could. (NSW physio) Liz (Steet) and (Blues doctor Nathan Gibbs) here are pretty happy with how far it’s come with the movement I’ve got and how less tender it is. “It’s definitely a lot better than I thought it was going to be.” Blues coach Laurie Daley wants to have his full squad ready to train by Thursday’s session, which is the first major hit-out of the week.  - AAP

he called an “integrated” game plan which featured the perfect balance of kicking for territory and running the ball. The onus will be on Carter, who missed the first two tests with a cracked bone in his right hand, to set the standard, something the 31-year-old has been good at in the past, even if it might be a little tough on Aaron Cruden, who had one of his best games for the All Blacks at AMI Stadium. “What we’re trying to do is integrate both of them,” Foster said in New Plymouth yesterday of the kick/run tactics. “It’s not our goal just to do one or the other, it’s to do both and I was really impressed with the decision making of our 9 and 10 and 15 last week in terms of when to kick. “Clearly we saw some really good opportunities to do that and the key for us now is to learn how to integrate that ... we adjusted well in

the last 20 minutes of that game ... [but] after the review today I think we’re still a way off. “It’s exciting where we got to, don’t get me wrong ... but we’re fully aware that there’s still plenty of potential to get smarter and better at how we see that space.” Carter for Cruden isn’t likely to be the only change. Ben Smith has been signalled as a good chance to take Conrad Smith’s jersey at Yarrow Stadium, and head coach Steve Hansen could also give opportunities to Blues players Steven Luatua and Charles Piutau. Ben Smith’s move to centre from right wing would be taken with a view to the future - his namesake Conrad’s sabbatical means he will miss the All Blacks’ European tour. Asked if it was a risk moving the in-form Highlanders player to a relatively unfamiliar position, Foster said: “We got told it was a risk playing him on the wing when he was a

fullback but he’s been pretty good on the wing the last two weeks. “He’s a well-rounded footballer and he’ll deal with any challenges we give him.” Conrad Smith, who was born and raised in Taranaki, said he could understand the coaches trying someone else in the No13 jersey, even if it denied him playing his third test at Yarrow Stadium. He added of Ben Smith’s attributes: “He’s a great player and I think everyone can see that. “It would be a change for him but it’s something he’s dealt with in the past.” It was confirmed yesterday that France players Louis Picamoles and Freddie Michalak would travel home due to their injuries suffered in Christchurch. With the prospect of more pain to come this weekend, some of their team-mates might just envy them.  - APNZ

Bye just the ticket for Warriors, says Elliot By Cameron McMillan After recording their first fourgame winning streak since 2011, you would expect the bye week to be an unwelcome momentum killer for the New Zealand Warriors, but coach Matt Elliott says the break has come at just the right time. The Warriors’ 23-12 victory over the Sydney Roosters on Sunday night lifted the side to 11th on the NRL table, with another two points added to their season tally of 12 when they put their feet up this weekend. After two brutal encounters in the last fortnight, it’s easy to see why Elliott and his side will enjoy the break which comes after playing 14 straight games, including just as many flights across the Tasman. It only gets harder for one of the competition’s in-form teams. Up ahead lie challenging matches against the Broncos at home and Shaun Johnson: Grabbed a field goal a road trip to the table-topping in the dying stages of Saturday night’s Rabbitohs - which will be followed by their second and final bye. match despite a groin injury.

“We’re pretty lucky that we’ve got the bye next week,” said a proud Elliott after the victory over the third-placed Roosters - the second top-four scalp for the Warriors in as many weeks. “I wouldn’t say that structurally we got everything right that we wanted to but we played a pretty good team, let’s be honest about it. “They’re a top-four team. “Just the effort and resolve, the resilience to actually come up with that result was just a marvel. “The players should be really proud of themselves.” Despite the recent winning streak the long run of games looks to have taken its toll, most noticeably on two of their key players. Manu Vatuvei was left with a slight hamstring issue following an 80-metre try, while playmaker Shaun Johnson went into the match with a groin niggle which saw him give up the kicking duties - but it didn’t stop him from slotting a field goal in the closing stages. Fullback Kevin Locke, originally named in the side but withdrawn due to a hip flexor injury, will

should be available to play the Broncos. As the side might quietly reflect on the first part of the season it would be easy to focus on the 62-6 defeat to the Panthers in week 10 as a turning point, however Elliott said that their last defeat wasn’t the catalyst for their winning run. “I can understand that [Panthers’ loss] being a reference point, I really do, but people don’t often talk about the six weeks prior where we were building. We got in that situation quite often six weeks prior where we were leading into the 70th minute and didn’t win and that really took its toll. “We’ve obviously got plenty of work to do. We can’t win like that every week or we’ll be 70kg by the end of the season. I probably shouldn’t be saying that, I should just be recognising the fantastic effort the players put in for each other.” Elliott might not want to win like that each week but five weeks ago he’d be happy with any type of win. He now heads into the bye week with a lot more job security then he did two months ago. - HOL

Jason Christie completed his debut ride for his new team the OCBC Singapore Pro Team with a 48th overall finish on the Tour of Korea. Christie came 36th on the 90.8km final stage of the tour while team-mate Eric Sheppard claimed a second consecutive podium coming third. Sheppard ended up 11th overall while Thomas Rabou finished in the lead pack to hold on to his fifth-place ranking in the GC, 1:28 behind yellow jersey winner Michael Cuming from top Continental Team Rapha Condor JLT. Christie now heads back to the team base in Singapore for a few days of recuperation before jetting off to a race in Malaysia this weekend.

• Soward off to London Jamie Soward has played his last game for St George Illawarra after being granted an immediate release to join English Super League strugglers the London Broncos. Soward was axed by Dragons coach Steve Price two weeks ago after he missed a lastgasp penalty that would have sent a clash with Canterbury into golden point at ANZ Stadium. He then faced the ignominy of playing in the NSW Cup for the Illawarra Cutters in the curtainraiser to the NRL side’s win over Newcastle at Hunter Stadium in round 13. Soward will join Penrith next year after signing a four-year deal with the Panthers in April, but will head to the UK to take up a short-term contract with the London Broncos.- AAP

• ‘I’m no diver’ - Josh Canterbury tyro Josh Reynolds has hit back at claims he played for the match-winning penalty in Friday night’s NRL win over Manly, saying “I’m no diver”. Glenn Stewart was penalised for a lifting tackle during extra-time of the 32-30 loss to the Bulldogs, though replays appeared to show Reynolds contributing to the way he landed. Bulldogs halfback Trent Hodkinson slotted the match-winning penalty goal from the resultant kick, prompting a despondent Geoff Toovey to say Reynolds had conned the referees. But the 24-year-old, who will be Watmough’s NSW teammate for State of Origin game two, slammed any suggestion he had milked the penalty. - AAP

• Peachey a Panther Cronulla youngster Tyrone Peachey will join a new-look Penrith side next season after signing a two-year deal with the NRL club. The 21-year-old nephew of retired Sharks icon David Peachey has played two NRL games since making his debut with Cronulla in round 10. The new contract, announced yesterday, means Peachey will be at the Panthers until the end of the 2015 season. “I’m really excited to be coming to Penrith, and I appreciate the club taking an interest in me and my playing future,” he said. - AAP

• Hoffman ‘the man’ He will be his fierce opponent in State of Origin next week but Ryan Hoffman is the player Melbourne skipper Cameron Smith wants right alongside him in the Storm trenches. The 29-year-old back-rower was integral in Melbourne’s 18-16 win over Newcastle on Sunday, slipping a ball out of the back of a tackle for Billy Slater to score the match-winning try. “He’s probably in the best condition physically of his career, and that’s helping him play the way he’s playing,” said Smith. - AAP

Ashburton swimmers have had a change of course that should streamline them to the top. The Eastern Districts, made up of seven clubs from Mid Canterbury, South Canterbury and North Otago, has been officially dissolved and Ashburton will now come under the Canterbury-West Coast banner, providing a high performance pathway for the top swimmers. “It’s a new initiative, not just for us but it’s brand new for Canterbury as well,” Ashburton swim coach Carl Gordon said. “It’s the coaches that are driving it but High Performance Sport, Swimming New Zealand and Swim Canterbury as well as the Christchurch City Council have all got in behind it to try and make it really happen. “I don’t doubt there will be some tweaking needed in the short term, but there are a lot of positives to come out of it.” The new regime is aimed at the pursuit of improved performance, skill and technique by allowing the athletes to be exposed to different training and racing environments as well as different coaching styles. “I look at it as part of Canterbury that it’s everybody working to improve everybody, feeding off each other’s skills sets and experience.” The new arrangements will have little impact on the Ashburton club but merely offers a greater level of support to the top swimmers. “We always travel as a club to nationals and swim meets so nothing changes there.

Ashburton College’s Romeo Touli offloads a one-handed pass while using the other hand to hold off Lincoln’s Marshall Parlane on Saturday.

1st XV achieves major goal By Jonathan Leask It was mission accomplished for the Ashburton College 1st XV after they made the top eight of the Crusaders Secondary Schools’ rugby competition for the first time. A 30-13 bonus-point win over Lincoln High School ensured that College leapfrogged Timaru Boys’ into fourth place in the NorthernSouthern section. College needed to secure a bonus point win and rely on Nelson Boys’ to remain unbeaten against Timaru Boys’ to jump up a place. “There were a few hiccups but we got the job done,” College coach Shane Enright said. College collected the win and the bonus point they were after, but it wasn’t all plain sailing.

“Lincoln had nothing to lose and played their best game of the season, while we went in a bit cock-a-hoop and thought it would just happen for us, and the rain didn’t help.” Lincoln came out strong and took an early 3-0 lead before the hosts conjured up a length of the field try finished off by flanker Setareki Koroitamana to go up 5-3. Man of the match first five eighth Nathan McCloy then produced an individual effort to burst 30 metres untouched, and converted his try to put College ahead 12-3 at halftime. “At halftime we talked about being more patient and not taking Lincoln as lightly, but the words didn’t work to start with.” Lincoln again got off to the better start, but could only add a second penalty before McCloy

produced a second piece of individual brilliance to score another try to take it out to 17-6, which kicked College into gear. “Once Nathan scored we just had a 10 minute burst of outstanding rugby and blew then off the park.” Replacement flanker Devaun Thompson was put over down the right hand side for the bonus point try, and then winger Romeo Touli scored in the left corner for College to race out to 30-6. With five to go College rang the changes and Lincoln fired up again to have the final say with a consolation try to end the game. Conceding the late try wasn’t a concern, as with their part of the bargain ticked off College was anxious to hear the result elsewhere to learn their fate. “It was then just waiting to see what happened but the results

came through after just a few minutes and we were through.” Marlborough finished on top of the section with a 62-0 win over Nayland with Nelson College second, and Roncalli College edged out Waimea 17- 16 to stay in third two points ahead of Ashburton College. College, and the other three Northern-Southern section sides, now play crossover matches against the central top four of St Bedes, Christchurch Boys’, Christ’s College and St Thomas’ to find the semi-finalists. With goal number one achieved, College’s target is now finishing ahead of Roncalli to be the top co-ed school in the competition. “We’ll have a go at all four games, see what can happen and do the best we can and hope Roncalli falter so we can achieve goal number two.”

Mystery person: Currently helping the Windies try to take the Champions Trophy, Marlon Samuels has 46 tests and nearly 150 ODIs to his name. His name was the first announced for the Caribbean Premier League tournament. Quote: Sachin Tendulkar Trivia question: Shane van Gisbergen

“It’s just some of our swimmers will go into Canterbury relay teams but it doesn’t change a whole lot on how we do things. “The only difference is the pathway programme which has the goal of getting swimmers to pinnacle events. “There is the travel factor and time commitments with the programme so it’s not without its challenges, but if we can work it well there is a lot to be gained by us.” Ashburton has had nine swimmers named in the inaugural squads. Grace Sommerville was named in the Platinum squad as one of the top six female swimmers in the newly defined region, and will get to train alongside Sophie Pascoe who has been named as an extra member of the squad for training purposes. “Sophie is a professional athlete and she can bring a lot to the table to rub off on the other swimmers,” said Gordon. Joseph Brown is in the gold youth squad with Samuel Woolf and Lucy Clough in the Silver age group squad. Matthew Harford, Matthew Clough, Jay Martin, Sophie Beckley and Aimee Elliot were all put in the bronze junior squad. All the squads have their challenges set, for example the platinum team knows their target competition is the Queensland State Championships in December, and will begin working towards that effective immediately. The change was officially launched on Saturday and the squads have their first trainings this Sunday. Grace Sommerville
