By Gabrielle Stuart International credit card fraudsters are using Ashburton business websites to host their scams and some businesses may have no idea they are being used. One Ashburton business was recently hacked for a global credit card scam in which people are emailed a link to the Ashburton website but are redirected to the scammer’s site. The business owners had no idea their website was being used until a victim in South Africa contacted them. The case was not isolated, with several local businesses affected by similar scams in the past year. NetSafe executive director Martin Cocker said that scammers could work for months without owners having any idea their websites were being used, and no sites were too small to be affected. “Usually the criminals are looking for any sort of a website that has a particular vulnerability, so that could be anyone. Often there isn’t any particular reason why a cyber criminal will choose a New Zealand based business, although it is seen as a trustworthy country with low levels of corruption, so people are more likely to trust sites here.” He said that when websites weren’t properly secured

Scammers target Ashburton websites scammers could infiltrate websites and add pages for themselves or redirect visitors to their own sites, and that many small businesses were hit after employing third party web hosts or web developers to create their websites. “Usually the scammers get in when the code or the web platform has security holes, and the mistakes the cyber criminal exploit are often fairly basic. Although the business owners will often know nothing about the security protocols it is basic stuff for web developers, so it’s essential when choosing a host or builder for your website to check that they are up to date with security.” He said that for businesses who had been hit by scammers security holes could sometimes be patched, but where the host was corrupted in some cases the business would need to start again with the website on a more secure platform. He suggested that businesses or customers looking for more information visit securitycentral., a website developed by NetSafe to inform and help protect people against cyber crime. Information and advice is available through the website on how small businesses can secure their websites against use by scammers. Web link:

Scarecrows spring up all round Methven

Photo Tetsuro Mitomo 180413-TM-105

A hill and a pail are clues to which famous nursery rhyme characters these scarecrows may represent. They are among mystery identities on the Methven Scarecrow Trail, pictured with organisers Gillian Heald (left) and Karyn Robertson. By Susan Sandys Methven is being overtaken by straw-filled creatures which look like nursery rhyme characters. There are 33 of them, each a mystery identity on the Methven Scarecrow Trail, which opens tomorrow and runs for

the school holidays. Residents and business owners have been constructing the scarecrows outside their premises, along the theme of Famous Nursery Rhyme Characters. Those participating in the trail will buy a map and walk, cycle or drive around the town to find the scarecrows and then give their

best guess on which character each represents. There are prizes for the most correct answers and the best scarecrow, as voted by participants. Organiser Gillian Heald and her daughter Karyn Robertson brought the trail back to the town this year after it was not held last year. Money from map sales will

go to the Methven Preschool. “It’s been an amazing response from the community with 33 scarecrow entries – we were aiming for 30 so that’s fantastic,” Mrs Robertson said. She was pleased with the community support, not only in building scarecrows, but businesses such as Brinkley Resort

and The Professionals providing prizes and printing maps. She hoped the trail would attract families from throughout Mid Canterbury and further afield throughout the school holidays. The trail begins tomorrow at 10am and finishes May 4 at 2pm. Trail maps are $5 and are available at the Methven i-SITE.

Quake ‘an aftershock of the September 4, 2010 earthquake’ By Susan Sandys A 3.1 magnitude earthquake in Methven on Wednesday night was most likely an aftershock of the September 4, 2010 Darfield earthquake, seismologists say. The earthquake struck under Darts Road, Methven, about five kilometres north of the town, coming two years after a string of earthquakes devastated Christchurch and rattled Canterbury. Among those who felt Wednesday night’s shake was Margaret Feiss on Darts Road, about one-and-ahalf kilometres from the epicentre. “It was noisy,” she said. Mrs Feiss said she first heard a rumble, then the house creaked as it moved. It was a short and sharp jolt, over very quickly. She said she had assumed

the earthquake was centred in Christchurch, but did not hear anything from relatives in the city so forgot about it, until someone mentioned to her yesterday that it had struck almost straight under her house. She had been surprised, and was cautious about telling her mother about it, after other family members had lost their Christchurch homes in the deadly February 22, 2011, earthquake. Another Darts Road resident, who did not want to be named, said her dog started barking before the earthquake struck. “And then I heard a noise and then the house shook a little bit,” she said. “It was a little bit scary, because I thought we had had enough, I thought it (seismic activity) had settled down, but obviously it

hasn’t,” she said. In the town of Methven the earthquake was felt as a short, sharp jolt, making houses creak and windows rattle. It generated 41 “felt it” reports on the GNS website. The earthquake comes after similar events near the town in 2011. On June 23, 2011, a 4.3 magnitude earthquake centred in the Lyndhurst/Lauriston area sent residents running under doorways. It was strongly felt throughout Mid Canterbury. It followed a 4.8 magnitude at Lake Heron earlier that month, and there were three shakes in the magnitude 3 range within a few kilometres of Methven in late January and early February that year. GNS duty seismologist Caroline Little said Wednesday’s Methven

earthquake was an aftershock of the major earthquakes which had rattled Canterbury. It was most likely an aftershock of the Darfield quake on September 4, 2010, as the fault which had generated that quake was close to Methven. “There will probably be these small aftershocks for years to come,” Mrs Little said. The Greendale fault was aligned with Methven. It finished in the Hororata area, but its energy dispersed out towards the town in the south, and towards Christchurch in the north. This was why the Methven area was getting more quakes as compared to, say, Ashburton. However, Methven was not particularly prone to earthquakes, with other areas of Canterbury being much more so.

Leaks ‘frustrating’ By Myles Hume An ongoing battle with leaky buildings has been a frustrating journey for one Mid Canterbury principal. Longbeach School has undergone a raft of repairs during the past two years after the school was found to have water seeping through windows and from the roof, leaving puddles of water inside some parts of the school’s newest block built in 2000. With a repair bill of $300,000 paid by the Ministry of Education, the original builders returned to fix the building block late in 2011 at cost price, with the work being signed off at the beginning of last year. The builders stripped and replaced the pine cladding on two classrooms, repaired a set of leaky boxed windows and

Methven Primary’s school hall resembled Eden Park just three weeks ago, as Black Cap Peter Fulton took centre stage against the school’s young bowling line up yesterday. Fulton, coming off the back of a heroic two century effort in the third and final test against England late last month in Auckland, visited the Methven youngsters where his batting was put to the test against an attack of young bowlers. With a mini souvenir bat in hand, the 34-year-old dealt with yorkers, bouncers and the odd stray ball, sending the ball into the crowd of youngsters gathered around the bat in the small hall. Fulton’s visit was the second time a high profile New Zealand sportsperson has visited Methven Primary in as many weeks, after Olympic BMX silver medallist Sarah Walker wowed the school with her biking talent. Teacher Cheryl Isherwood said the visit was spurred by Fulton’s niece Sophie, 8, and nephew George, 6, after they twisted his arm to come along and meet their friends and teachers. “It’s great to have him along here, having people like this in the school gives the kids something to aspire to and to hear their stories about how they got to where they are is really good for them,” Ms Isherwood said. Fulton, also known as Two Metre Peter, stood in front of the packed hall, and fielded questions from the youngsters about his playing career and personal life. He told them about his rigorous training regime with the Canterbury Wizards and the Black Caps, also

Black Cap Peter Fulton is asked a range of questions from his personal to professional life at Methven Primary yesterday afternoon. taking time to talk about his love of books, rugby and family life. Like Sarah Walker, the school put the cricket star under the microscope at his own game.

They created a timed cricket course involving catching, batting and throwing, Fulton managing to edge out youngster BJ Layno, completing the course in seven

seconds. He then faced a bombardment of deliveries before the ball was placed in his hand, the right-hander sending his own wave of deliveries down the wooden-

floored pitch. The school was grateful for the visit and wished Fulton well ahead of his tour to England with the Black Caps in the coming weeks.

New website should ensure more overseas visitors By Sue Newman The Ashburton District’s chances of securing a greater share of visitors to New Zealand has been increased with the launch of Experience Mid Canterbury’s new website. And that will see at least one person working full-time on on-line promotion of the district, says the organisation’s chief executive Nigel Birt.

By Sue Newman A huge tourism opportunity could open up for the Ashburton District with Wednesday night’s passing of a law legalising gay marriage. Experience Mid Canterbury chief executive Nigel Birt said tourism operators and organisations around the country had already begun looking at ways to capitalise on the law change that puts New Zealand ahead of Australia in legalising marriage between gay couples. As well as a new domestic market,

Poll closes at 4pm

The new website had taken about a year to develop but the end result was something that really showcased the Ashburton District Mr Birt said. “These will be enhanced further over the coming month to include imagery and video content, however it’s just a massive task collating and uploading this content and we have to balance resources with other projects on the go.” The website will be live this weekend to co-incide with the Tourism

Industry’s annual tradeshow TRENZ, which starts in Auckland on Sunday. The website will go live tonight. Not only was the website’s content enhanced, its functionality had been improved to ensure it could be developed further, Mr Birt said. Detailed maps of cycling and walking, food and wine, heritage and art trails are being established to appeal to special interest tourism markets.

caught up in the legal case, however a spokesman said the request would only be considered under the Official Information Act, meaning a response could take up to 20 days. With remedial work taking about seven months at Longbeach School starting in September 2011, Mr Simons said the banging, saws and personal dealings with the builders disrupted the school. However, the work needed to be done after posing a potential health risk with mould and mildew. The school hopes to have the leaking library repaired this year.

buildings at Ashburton Borough also understood to have had leaky building problems - was responsible for the leaks as well as the builders of the classrooms. Although Mr Simons believed the problems the school faced would not be caught up in the legal stoush, he is backing the ministry’s move to recover the hefty bill. “We haven’t been informed about any legal action and to be honest that would be between the ministry and the companies. “I do back it, in any other business you would take legal action and it’s the Ministry of Education being responsible with taxpayer money rather than shrugging their shoulders.” The Guardian asked the Ministry of Education if any leaky buildings in Mid Canterbury schools would be

worked on an internal guttering system, the work causing wide-spread disruption. Today, principal Neil Simons says the school has been waiting more than eight months for further remedial work after rotten wood was found behind a window in the library, revealed after work was done to replace it with a door. The frustration comes as the Ministry of Education gears up for a court case against a group of building product companies, in addition to builders and architects, who it believes is responsible for leaky Crown-owned buildings in New Zealand schools. The ministry has approved about $1.5 billion worth of remedial work for 800 leaky classrooms at 300 schools.

operators can now target packages into the Australian market. “I do think there are opportunities there and we need to talk to our operators, they need to come up with great packages we can take to the market.” Mr Birt heads to Auckland this weekend to attend the annual TRENZ exhibition and he said the law change and its implications for tourism in New Zealand is likely to be a hot topic. “I think we’ll learn a lot at the trade show and we’ll look at this in a planned manner after the show. “We’ll have discussions with operators

but at the end of the day they need to come up with the packages and if we get an interesting package we’ll put it out there through the right channels.” TRENZ puts New Zealand tourism operators and organisations in touch with a large range of international wholesalers and it is the tourism industry’s number one showcase opportunity for the year. It is also attended by representatives from more than 50 domestic and international media organisations and for anyone who attends, the exposure is invaluable, Mr Birt said. by David Fletcher

While there was more testing and fine tuning to do, the decision was made to release the site at the trade show to gain traction and ensure the industry was aware of what the district had to offer, he said. The new website will include live online bookings a travel planning resource, detailed events calendar, online flipbooks of official visitor guides. Behind the scenes, travel trade wholesalers from all over the globe

can log in to a private zone to create travel itineraries for their tour packages. “Once the website is live and fine tuned we will be getting it further connected to smart-phone travel apps, Tourism New Zealand and other travel sties as well as multi media screens.” The new website would also provide local operators and event managers with a huge number of resources via the operator zone links, Mr Birt said.

Farmers ready for change The two major players in the meat processing industry – Alliance and Silver Fern Farms, could join forces if they can get 100 per cent commitment from farmer suppliers. At a meeting called by the recently formed Meat Industry Excellence (MIE) group in Christchurch this week, about 99 per cent of the 600 farmers in attendance signalled their disillusionment with the meat industry, and readiness for change, spokesperson Blair Gallagher, who farms at Mt Somers, said. With the lamb kill forecast to be down by at least two million next season, as a result of the North Island drought and cash strapped farmers opting out of the industry, the group hopes to offset another procurement war. While Wednesday’s meeting did not attract the 1000 participants who attending the first MEI meeting in Gore, the group was pleased with the outcome. “It was a very satisfactory meeting, especially the fact that we achieved our objective to get a mandate for change,” Mr Gallagher said. “The next meeting will be held in Feilding on April 26, and we are still slightly in limbo until then – we need a New Zealand-wide mandate for changes.” MIE chairman Richard Young revealed a five-step roadmap to restructure the volatile industry to improve returns. This involved short term goals of gaining farmer support, a “tight


Some tips for the weekend

Saturday: • Classic motorbike run Local classic motorbike enthusiasts have arranged a run on Sunday. Anyone who has a bike or scooter at least 30 years old is invited to take part. There is no entry fee, the run covers about 110km and there are interesting stops along the way. The run leaves the Mitre 10 car park at 12.30pm and members of the public are invited to come along to meet the riders and see the bikes. • Antiques and Collectables Show This is a great opportunity to view or buy a huge range of interesting, quirky or rare items. The show will be held at the Ashburton Sports Hall from 10am to 4pm

five” group assigned to attaining industry and government support, and undertaking due diligence on the costs and benefits of rationalising meat companies. Longer term strategies involved gaining the commitment of meat companies, unions and bankers, and meat companies undertaking to stop disruptive procurement practices and dumping meat on to the market. With a show of hands, farmers indicated no one would jump ship to a rival company for an extra 10 cents a kilogram payout. In return meat companies must guarantee no farmer committing to supply under contracts received less than non-committed suppliers. “The main thing is to do it in several stages but maintaining the status quo is not an option – we’ve got to move forward,” Mr Gallagher said “Change in behaviour is needed across the industry – that includes farmers, processors and marketers – this is not just a co-operative problem but an industry problem.” Mr Gallagher said Alliance director Murray Taggart and Silver Fern Farms director Eoin Garden indicated if they could get 100 per cent commitment from farmers for supply; it would be a “no-brainer” to work together. “There’s a lot of hard work to do but I’m feeling more optimistic, but we still need a New Zealand mandate,” he said.

Steaming along on his chosen path By Sue Newman Happiness for Bryce Chisnall is a roaring fire in the belly of a steam train. And while that might sound an odd obsession for a 15-yearold, stoking fires has earned Bryce the honour of being probably the youngest person in New Zealand to earn his fireman’s ticket. That will now allow him to control any kind of boiler.

He’s been a regular at the Plains Railway for five years, with his interest in the historic precinct sparked by his love of machinery. “It’s also something that’s a bit different, not many people do it,” Bryce said. He might be the youngest member of the Plains team, but age doesn’t matter when everyone involved is enthusiastic and interested in the same things – big engines, he said.

To achieve his fireman’s ticket Bryce had to do a little study and put in a lot of engine time. He’s not complaining and as soon as he’s legally able to secure his motor vehicle driver’s licence, he’ll be lining up to sit his engine driver’s licence too. For a young man, spending spare time with big engines is a bit unusual and while his mates give him a bit of ribbing about his hobby, Bryce said he knows

they’re also proud of what he’s achieved. Last weekend’s Wheat and Wheels festival was like being in heaven for Bryce. He spent the weekend driving traction engines. It was his first time at the wheel of the huge workhorses but he said their lack of speed makes them pretty safe machines to drive. Not surprisingly for a young man who loves machinery, Bryce hopes to become a mechanic when he leaves school.

Farmers’ market success could be its downfall By Gabrielle Stuart The success of local farmers’ markets could be their downfall, as stalls dwindle at the weekly Ashburton market. Several local businesses found their feet at the local market, but as weekly schedules grew along with their businesses they no longer had the time to hold stalls at the market. Local expert sausage roll maker Jen Dearborn started out at the local farmers’ markets four years ago, but since she begun her business she said she hasn’t had the time to hold a stall. “I do miss it, and I felt like a bit of a traitor leaving. I still get people angrily stopping me on the street, asking why I’m not at the farmers market.” She said that it was the market

closing over the winter months that inspired her to step out on her own as the Staveley Baking Company. “I realised it was a way I could still make money while the markets stopped for the winters, and from then it grew. I didn’t want to give up the stall, but after working all week I just need to have my weekends.” She missed the camaraderie and conversations with customers at the markets, and said it was an amazing way to start a business. “I started with just a pie warmer and gazebo, and now my rolls travel across Canterbury. You get instant access to the public at the markets. You can speak to your customers and get feedback on products and tailor them to what people want, and that’s the real beauty of it.” For young mum Nadine Porter,


her weekly stall has grown into a national business. Although her chocolates are now sold across the country, they had humble beginnings at the Ashburton Farmers’ Market, where the locals tried her experiments and helped her fine-tune her recipes. She began selling her chocolates at the market about five years ago, and with a five-yearold and a baby at the time it was anything but easy. “It’s one of the strengths of the market, I think – that it is a family based environment and you can bring your kids along. People are really supportive and really loyal. It was hard work setting up and it takes dedication to be there each week, but it’s a wonderful place to start.” She said that her success at the market was the biggest drive to start her own business.

“Bullrush wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for the market. You get good deals at the markets and riper produce, and I think the biggest issue is that people just don’t realise how good it is and what a good place it is to start a business.” And although it has been years since she manned a stall at the market, it could be her future too. “I’m hoping to be back at the market next year, with strawberries and our chillies and tomatoes too. I’m not sure how I’m going to fit it all in, but I would love to be back there.” The Ashburton Farmers’ Market will run for two more weeks before closing for the winter, and will start again in October. It is held from 9am on Saturdays at the West St car park.

A watershed moment in New Zealand history T

he passing of the Marriage Amendment Bill on Wednesday night was a watershed moment in New Zealand history. The bill put New Zealand in line with 12 other enlightened nations around the world but also blazes a trail for gay rights in the Pacific Rim area, where no other country so far has similar legislation. The emotion around the final vote demonstrated the deepseated feelings among those who support gay marriage but also the vehement opposition among Christian and conservative

OUR VIEW groups. Talkback radio in the hours leading up to the final debate and vote highlighted the sharp division between those in favour and those against the new bill. Sadly, much of the rhetoric before and after the vote from the conservative corner has been aggressive, divisive and lacking respect for other opinions. While those in favour of the bill focused on the love between two partners and the caring

environment a happy gay couple could provide for children, the conservative organisations yesterday fired out press releases with titles like The Day of Reckoning Yet to Come and Day of Shame. The debate and the reactions have actually shown us more about the anti-gay marriage lobby than the gay rights movement. Many Kiwis may not feel comfortable with a homosexual lifestyle but also feel uneasy with

Coen Lammers editor

conservative groups trying to impose their personal ethics and principles on others. Few decent, self-respecting New Zealanders would dare to attack or question anyone’s Christian beliefs, however fundamental

they may be, so it seems odd that these groups do not have to show the same respect for other people’s views. Awarding gay couples the right to get married is about much more than the technical ability to enter into a marriage agreement. It is about telling every gay person, and especially young gay people, that they are Kiwis like all of us with the same rights and responsibilities. The presumption that the sky would fall in and that any children involved in gay relationships would be doomed

Conservatives have called on research that show that children need male and female role models but many children already have those outside their family units, whether they have one or two parents living with them. Having a mum and dad is no guarantee for a happy childhood. Just ask the thousands of abused children throughout the country. That shows that it is more important to have parents who can provide a loving and supportive environment than the gender of those parents.

Labour, Greens promise power price cuts



for life, is preposterous. Much of the debate centred on children, but why would a child in a loving gay relationship be worse off than those growing up in single-parent families? You don’t hear the conservative groups calling for laws to take children off single parents, so why should gay people be any less successful as parents? New Zealand already has many wonderful families with two mothers or two fathers so the marriage law will make no difference, it will merely formalise their family unit.

YOUR VIEW Thank you On behalf of members of the Ashburton Kidney Society Incorporated we thank members of the public for their support on National Water Day held on Thursday, March 14 when we were undertaking free blood pressure testing in the Arcade. A total of 198 blood pressures were taken on the day with 25% of these having an elevated

reading. Special thanks to members of the local St John team and the registered nurses who gave up their time to help on the day. Also Redmonds for the use of their vacant shop in the Arcade and management and staff of Mitre 10 who took part in a mass screening exercise. High blood pressure is a major contributor to kidney disease and the more we are able to

make the public aware of this by carrying out free blood pressure testing the better chance we have of recognising the signs and symptoms. Thank you again. Committee members, Ashburton Kidney Society Inc

Birthright chief catches up with regions Birthright chief executive Gabrielle O’Brien caught up with the Mid Canterbury branch of the organisation this week. Gabrielle O’Brien has held the CEO position since November, and was in town on her orientation tour. She met with Ashburton Birthright coordinator Christine Muff, president Phil Godfrey and members of the committee. Birthright is a not for profit organisation which supports single parents in its own right, and by referring clients to other agencies as deemed suitable. “All Birthright branches work with single parent families but each area has its own flavour – it is a national organisation with autonomous regional groups,” Ms O’Brien said. “I’m here to find out how things work in Ashburton.” And she was impressed with what she learned. “From what I’ve seen is the strength of the relationships Christine has with the other agencies Birthright is involved with,” she said. Ms O’Brien said communities were not always aware of the support Birthright provides, and the increasing need for it. “There is still a stigma around being a single parent,” she said. The local service currently supports about 100 clients, including a growing number of people raising grandchildren. Birthright is funded through grants, donations and fundraising efforts.

POWER PLANS • A new independent Crown entity “NZ Power” will act as a single buyer of wholesale electricity with the power to set prices. • There will still be a wholesale pool for electricity and the price will still vary regionally, reflecting transmission costs and line losses. • NZ Power will on-sell electricity to retailers on the basis of long-term contracts. • Large users will be able to contract directly with NZ Power. • NZ Power or Transpower will decide on what generation should be despatched. It will also be able to direct generators to use available capacity. • NZ Power will cover all of its costs, including its electricity trading operations, over the long term. • NZ Power will take on the majority of all current regulatory functions and powers.

our electricity system. For the first time we will have a major player in the system that is committed to energy efficiency.” Mr Shearer said the plan would take revenue out of New Zealand’s power companies including Mighty River and others earmarked for partial sale under the National Government’s mixed ownership model. “It will devalue the companies.” As far as the impact on those companies’ share prices, “it’s up to the market”. “For the last 13 or 14 years we’ve had companies making super profits and in effect paying for those profits have been ordinary New Zealanders through their higher electricity prices.” He said the plan would ensure “a fair return” for those companies, “but it won’t be at the super profit level that it currently is at the moment”. Asked whether a Labour Greens Government would expect to face compensation claims from affected investors, Mr Parker said “no more than compensation was paid to Telecom when some of their excessive profits were stripped out”. “You cannot justify overcharging people tomorrow just because you overcharged them yesterday.” - APNZ

Labour and the Greens are promising a major intervention in the retail power system in a bid to lower residential power prices if they win next year’s election. It is a move that could have a major impact on the sale of three state-owned power companies. The parties would create a new Pharmac-style agency called NZ Power to act as a single buyer of wholesale electricity, Labour leader David Shear and Greens coleader Russel Norman announced at Parliament yesterday. Rather than paying power companies a high price for electricity no matter how much it cost to produce, the new agency would set a what he called a “fairer pricing system”. Mr Shearer estimated it would cut the nation’s power bill by up to $700 million a year. He said it was likely to have an impact on share prices so he had written to the board of Mighty River Power, 49 per cent of which is about to be floated on the stock exchange by the Government, and to shareholding ministers asking them to issue a supplementary disclosure. “This will allow Kiwis who have applied for shares since Monday to reconsider.” Labour’s finance spokesman David Parker said two-thirds of the $700 million a year savings would go to households, cutting their annual power bill by an average of $230 to $330 a year. The remaining savings would go to businesses. Business and Economic Research Ltd had estimated the plan would provide a $450 million boost to the economy and add 5000 jobs. Mr Shearer said Labour had been working on the plan for some time and it was not an attempt to derail the Government’s Mighty River share offer which began this week or the wider asset sales plan. He said it was the biggest market intervention Labour would make. “It’s the big Kahuna”. Mr Shearer said Labour and the Greens had been working on their plans for reform in parallel but had only in recent days realised they had the same central plan to establish the single buyer model. However, the Greens’ plan version is slightly different in that it would have progressive pricing. “Every household will get a block of low-cost electricity each month from the savings that NZ Power achieves,” Dr Norman said. “That will save each family $300 a year, while encouraging efficient use of power at the margins.” “NZ Power will be explicitly mandated to prioritise renewables, energy efficiency, and resilience of

making intimate visual recordings of women over a six-month period last year, which a judge yesterday described as a gross breach of trust. Martin filmed them at his school and at a shopping mall, as well as other locations which have been suppressed. At Christchurch District Court yesterday, Judge Emma Smith sentenced Martin to 10 months’

home detention and ordered him to undergo rehabilitation for his sexual deviancy. He has also been banned from having contact with any girls under the age of 16. The identities of only seven of the 20 victims are known. The decision by affected parents whether or not to tell their daughters that they had been spied on in the most perverted way has

been especially traumatic for them, Judge Smith said. “You didn’t care one bit for the effect of your offending on your victims,” she told Martin in the dock, saying he was only interested in his own “sexual pleasure and gratification”. She highlighted the extreme breach of trust, given he was a “principal, teacher, elder, father, fri end”. -APNZ

A man who witnessed a car drive down a wharf and plunge into the Tamaki River in Auckland on Wednesday night says he felt helpless as he watched the vehicle sink. The man, who lives nearby the Panmure wharf and asked not to be named, said he rang 111 and was told by the receiver to hold his position on land so he could direct emergency services personnel to where the car had entered the water about 8.30pm. The man was emotional yesterday as he recalled yelling out instructions he was told over the phone. He yelled for the female driver of the car to take off her seatbelt and wind down her windows as her car was quickly submerged in the water at the Panmure Yacht Club on Kings Rd. The screaming from the car was so loud he could not tell if there were others inside, he said. “My natural reaction would have

been to launch myself with a dinghy into the water,” the man said. “I saw it go in [and] I watched it sink. I maintained my position to tell police where it had submerged. “If I could have jumped in the water and freed the girl I would have. “[But] I was the only person able to talk to [emergency services] about [what was] going down.” Police yesterday afternoon confirmed that the body of a woman had been recovered from inside the vehicle. The police dive squad arrived at the scene yesterday morning to recover the woman’s body and she was believed to have been the only occupant of the car. Her body was taken to Auckland Hospital for a post-mortem examination and the “process of identification and notification of the next of kin is ongoing”. Police said no one else was being sought over the incident. - APNZ

Judge slams Pike River By APNZ and the Greymouth Star A judge should throw the book at Pike River Coal when the company is sentenced over the mining tragedy that killed 29 men, the miners’ union says. The company was convicted yesterday in Greymouth District Court on all nine charges arising from the November 2010 mining tragedy. The charges included four of failing to ensure the safety of its employees, and a further four of failing to ensure no employees, contractors or sub-contractors were harmed while working at the mine. Last month, Judge Jane Farish heard evidence presented by the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment, formerly the Department of Labour, but reserved her decision until yesterday. In particular, the ministry said Pike River failed to ensure proper ventilation and methane gas control, and said the company should have placed the main ventilation fan outside the mine. Pike River Coal indicated last month that it would not be defending the charges. Judge Farish yesterday found the breaches by Pike River Coal were “causative of the explosion and the subsequent deaths of those men who perished”. “In this case there were fundamental breaches of the Health and Safety in Employment Act which led to the unnecessary deaths of 29 men.” Judge Farish will issue a detailed and lengthy judgment within a fortnight, ahead of sentencing in July. The Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union, which represents miners, has called for the sentencing judge to throw the book at Pike River. “This is the most serious breach of our workplace health and safety laws in at least a generation and the sentence must reflect the gravity of the crime,” assistant national secretary Ged O’Connell said. “We would expect to see no less than the maximum fine levelled, as well as reparations for the families of the 29 miners.” Mr O’Connell said the case showed the need for a law change to introduce a charge of corporate manslaughter.

“The reality is Pike River Coal is now little more than a shell company that’s now in receivership. The accountability must lie with the directors and management who actually made the decisions. “Pike River Coal’s directors should not be able to hide behind shabby legal structures and carry on as if nothing ever happened.” West Coast-based Labour MP Damien O’Connor said no one in the area would be surprised that Pike River was found guilty of health and safety failures. “There was warning after warning that all was not well at the mine, but, for whatever reasons, recommendations to improve safety were ignored. Mr O’Connor said the decision was a step in the right direction, but no amount of financial penalty changed the fact 29 lives were lost. In a statement yesterday afternoon, Pike River Coal Ltd receivers PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) said they had no comment on the judgment, but would assist the court in sentencing in July. PwC partner John Fisk said that assistance would include information provided to the court and prosecution in relation to the company’s financial position and current status. “The receivers do not intend to take any position in relation to what may be an appropriate sentence. This is a matter for the court,” Mr Fisk said. The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment said the convictions followed a yearlong investigation by up to 15 investigators. “The former Department of Labour charged three parties under the Health and Safety in Employment Act over the explosion which killed 29 men in November 2010,” High Hazards and Specialist Services general manager Brett Murray said. VLI Drilling Pty Limited (of Australia) was convicted on three charges and, in October last year, was fined $46,800. The third case against the former Pike River chief executive Peter Whittall has still to be heard. Mr Whittall has applied to have his case heard outside of Greymouth, citing fears he may not receive a fair hearing on the West Coast. - APNZ

Injured baby boy fighting for his life By Matthew Backhouse and Heather McCracken A 4-month-old is fighting for his life after he was injured at a Wairoa home over the weekend, but police say they still do not have a clear picture of what happened. Child protection officers launched an investigation after the boy suffered critical injuries at a Lucknow St house about 9.30am

on Saturday. The boy was taken to Wairoa Hospital before being transferred that day to Starship Hospital in Auckland, where he remains in a critical condition with life-threatening injuries. Police and forensic experts have completed a scene examination of the house, but it remains unclear how the baby was injured. Police Eastern District child protection team head Detective Senior Sergeant David Greig, who is leading the investigation, would

not disclose the nature of the injuries. Nor would he reveal whether the boy was thought to have been injured in an assault or an accident, but he did confirm the injuries were from an “acute incident”. Mr Greig said investigators were working with medical staff and Child Youth and Family (CYF) to establish the circumstances. “We don’t have a clear picture of how those injuries have been sustained at this point, and that’s the

focus of the investigation.” He said the family was co-operating with police, and no arrests had been made. “We are a long way from that, if at all ... we’re at an early stage. We’re still gathering information.” Mr Greig said investigations of this nature were always treated seriously but were “not unusual, unfortunately”. He said police would have a clearer picture in the coming days. -APNZ

found the area “interesting”. Mr van der Wiel said he was glad he was able to get away from Wellington, where he lived, for a bit to meet some of the community that he represents in the South Island. He left town last night following a dinner for the Dutch community at the Lake House Restaurant at Lake Hood. When asked about the abdication of Queen Beatrix, Mr van der Wiel said he was excited to be ruled

by a king after 120 years of queens being in charge. Prince Willem Alexander is taking the throne on April 30 after Queen Beatrix announced that she would be stepping down just before her 75th birthday. She said that age was a factor but she was also stepping down to allow a new generation to rule on the 200th year of Holland’s independence. Mr Van der Wiel said that the

kingdom won’t change in general but everyone was excited for Prince Willem’s first speech that will outline the changes he will make. “There is no living Dutch who has been ruled by a King.” “But for the all the feminists out there, there is good news because he only has daughters,” he joked. There are over 150,000 Dutch people living in New Zealand which includes first, second and third generations.

Solo parents, Maori, Pacific Islanders and renters are more likely to feel like they live in cold, damp or small houses, according to the findings of a study, released yesterday. The findings from Statistic New Zealand’s 2010 New Zealand General Social Survey (NZGSS) show that 15 per cent of New Zealanders feel they live in cold houses, 10 per cent believe their house is damp, and 11 per cent find their house too small. However, overall just under twothirds of people reported no major problems at all with their homes. The NZGSS surveyed more than 8550 New Zealanders from April 2010 until March 2011 about their

well-being, covering a wide range of social and economic factors, principal statistician Paul Brown said. “This report is about people’s perceptions of the condition of the house or flat they live in,” he said. “Interestingly, we didn’t find a strong relationship between the problems people say their homes have, and how satisfied those people are with their lives overall.” The likelihood of reporting a major housing problem declined as a person’s material standard of living increased, the report found. People experiencing severe or significant material hardship were three to four times more likely to report a major housing problem than people enjoying a good or very good standard of living.

Writing and photography done by Ashburton Intermediate School students and teachers.

Ashburton students feel the rush of the race On a cool overcast morning, we went to the Canterbury triathlon in Pegasus, north of Christchurch. After the long drive up, we finally got out of our cars where we were met by a large crowd of children from all over Canterbury.

We had butterflies in our stomachs. We went through our check list to make sure we had everything. We lost track of time and had to rush to the bike racks to find a space before we started. We also needed to get ready

that included our shoes, top and a towel to dry ourselves off after our swim. Then it was time to line up in our age groups and listen to all the instructions. Luckily for us, all of the AIS boys were in the same wave.

We had to swim 100m, then bike 8.5km and run 1.5km for the 11 and 12 years. Finally the moment had come. TAKE YOUR MARKS!! GET SET!! GO!! Off we all charged into the freezing cold water.

That was one cold lake. Most of the AIS boys came out of the water and into transition at the same time. From this point, we all started separating from each other. We all pushed through the tough bike stage and then headed for

the finish line in the run. As we finally crossed the finish line, we had pushed ourselves to the limit on every part of the course and were exhausted. It was a really hard day but we all knew we did our best. We are grateful that we got to

Fertiliser plant blast toll climbs A massive explosion at a fertiliser plant near Waco in Texas yesterday injured dozens of people and killed an unknown number of others, leaving the factory a smoldering ruin and levelling buildings for blocks in every direction. The explosion at West Fertilizer in the town of West, some 130 kilometres south of Dallas, happened around 7pm local time and could be heard as far as 72 kilometres away. It sent flames shooting high into the night sky, and rained burning embers, shrapnel and debris down on shocked and frightened residents. A member of the city council, Al Vanek, said a four-block area around the explosion was “totally decimated”. Other witnesses compared the scene to that of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, and authorities said the plant made materials similar to that used to fuel the bomb that tore apart that city’s Murrah Federal Building. Although authorities said it will be some time before they know the full extent of the loss of life, Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman D. L. Wilson said just after midnight that an unknown number of people had died and more than 100 were injured. West Mayor Tommy Muska told reporters that his town of

about 2800 residents needs “your prayers”. A search for survivors continued throughout the night, as emergency workers went house to house and business to business looking for people trapped in the rubble. “We’ve got a lot of people who are hurt, and there’s a lot of people, I’m sure, who aren’t gonna be here tomorrow,” Muska said. “We’re gonna search for everybody. We’re gonna make sure everybody’s accounted for. That’s the most important thing right now.” Dozens of emergency vehicles amassed at the scene in the hours after the blast, as fires continued to smoulder in the ruins of the plant and in several surrounding buildings. Aerial footage showed injured people being treated on the flood-lit football field that had been turned into a staging area. Vanek said first-responders treated victims at about half a dozen sites, and he saw several injured residents from the nursing home being treated at the community centre. Swanton said the injured were being taken to hospitals in Waco and a triage centre set up at a high school in nearby Abbott.

US woman on trial in severed penis case A woman yelled “You deserve it” before severing her estranged husband’s penis with a 25cm kitchen knife and throwing it in a garbage disposal, a prosecutor said yesterday in opening statements at her trial. Catherine Kieu, 50, is accused of drugging her estranged husband’s tofu with sleeping pills and tying him to a bed before the attack. The prosecution alleges that Kieu was motivated by jealousy, and that she was angry about her husband’s plans to divorce her because he was seeing

his ex-girlfriend. Deputy Public Defender Frank Bittar told jurors that Kieu’s traumatic childhood in war-torn Vietnam caused mental illness that bars her from a mayhem or torture conviction.

A woman in running shoes pauses at a makeshift memorial on Boylston Street near the finish line of Monday’s Boston Marathon explosions, which killed at least three and injured more than 140.

Boston fans mourn, then cheer as sports return Emerging from a moment of silence with a deafening cheer, fans at last night’s Bruins game paid tribute to the victims of this week’s Boston Marathon bombing with a stirring national anthem and a thunderous chant of “USA!” The sold-out crowd at the first major sporting event in the city since Monday’s attack lined up for metal-detecting wands and random car inspections to get into the TD Garden. Once inside, they watched a somber video with scenes from the race, ending with the words, “We are Boston, We are Strong.” The players on the ice for the opening faceoff banged their sticks in the traditional hockey salute, drifting back off the blue lines so that they, too, could see the video. The Boston Fire Department Honor Guard brought out the US flag to honor the first responders who rushed to the aid of the three killed and more than 170 injured by the twin bombs at the marathon finish line. Longtime Boston Garden performer Rene Rancourt took his place for the “StarSpangled Banner.” But he sang only the first few lines, allowing the crowd to carry the tune while he pumped his fist to keep time. It was an emotional return to normal life for the city, which has been dazed by the

attacks on one of its signature and most beloved events. Monday’s scheduled Bruins game against Ottawa was rescheduled, and Tuesday night’s Celtics game was cancelled outright. But the Bruins said they were determined to help the city move on. “You’re trying to live your life in peace, and there’s people trying to disrupt that,” coach Claude Julien said after the team’s morning skate. “The people trying to live their life in peace are going to stick together.” Players on both teams wore “Boston Strong” decals on their helmets, and the Garden was illuminated in blue and yellow, the colors of the Boston Athletic Association. Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs pledged $100,000 to The One Fund Boston, the charity established to help families affected by the bombing; the Garden, the NHL and the players association pledged $50,000 each. Ads on the dasher boards and the video screens gave the website address for the fund. Bruins players and staff collected 80 tickets to the game to donate to the first responders. Forward Brad Marchand raffled off his own suite for the team’s first playoff game, with the proceeds to go to the family of 8-year-old Martin Richards, who was killed in the blast.

“We love the city,” said forawrd Chris Kelly. We want to help in any way we can — if we can give them 10 minutes of joy, or 20 hours of joy — anything we can do.” That was already accomplished 5:45 into the first period, when Daniel Paille’s goal to give the Bruins a 1-0 lead over the Buffalo Sabres brought a raucous chant of “We are Boston!” During the first break, public address announcer Jim Martin asked any runners from Monday’s race to stand up; many were wearing their finishers’ medals. He then asked for applause for anybody who has ever run; by the time he recognised anyone who has ever volunteered or watched the race, virtually the entire crowd was standing. “It’s a great day. It’s a great day for a lot of people,” said Bruins forward Jay Pandolfo, who went to Boston University. “There’s no reason for this to happen. You never thought something like this could happen, especially in the city of Boston. Stuff like this doesn’t cross your mind.” Cars were searched inside and out before entering the arena’s underground garage in the morning, with guards using a mirror on a pole to check the undercarriage.   - AAP

Thatcher effigy torched at ex-miners party

Even in death, Margaret Thatcher is controversial.



ARIES (Mar 21st Apr 20th) Your mind and your thinking can be exceptionally fertile today. Your boredom threshold could also be low as you need to feel liberated from the workaday concerns we all deal with. However simple, make some alterations to your schedule. Embrace the concept that change is as good as a rest. If you don’t, you might feel exhausted and listless.

In a former colliery village in northern England, ex-miners still bitter about the 1980s coal pit closures under Margaret Thatcher’s government have celebrated her funeral by torching her effigy. The demonstrators paraded the effigy of Britain’s deeply divisive first woman premier through the streets of Goldthorpe in a mock coffin before setting it ablaze on a makeshift pyre of wooden pallets and a sofa. Flames and black smoke filled the sky above the town’s boarded-up, graffiti-tagged terraced houses as hundreds gathered around the blaze, taking pictures on their camera phones and raising a pint of beer as youngsters looked on.

Several onlookers spat on the coffin as the flames took hold, destroying the life-size figure of the “Iron Lady” - a papier mache head on a body clad in a red dress, black tights and red shoes. “She destroyed our community. No jobs - people have no jobs. Goldthorpe used to be a thriving community,” said Heather Hopwood, 51, the landlady of the local pub and the daughter of a miner. Goldthorpe, near the town of Doncaster, is one of a string of pit villages in the South Yorkshire coalfield that to this day are still feeling the effects of the demise of its local colliery and the defeat to Thatcher’s government in the 1984-1985 miners’ strike.


TAURUS (Apr 21st May 21st) That hard-to-figure nervous energy which has come and gone in recent times can, once again, be back. This could lead to a headache, or worse a migraine, but especially if there are delicate issues washing around in you that you are finding hard to resolve. If you have some anxieties, it is very important that you do not judge yourself for these.

Villages like it revolved entirely around the mine and the jobs it provided. Thatcher remains a hate figure in the area and parties celebrating her death, which came last week at the age of 87, have been planned for decades. The bunting was up and there was a festive atmosphere outside the Rusty Dudley pub. England flags adorned the walls inside, while the balloons and ex-miners’ tops bore the slogan “coal, not dole”, which was common at the time of the strike. “Thatcher the Iron Lady - rest in rust,” read a banner pinned up outside. “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, Thatcher’s Britain has gone

bust,” read another. The year-long strike pitted the National Union of Mineworkers and its charismatic leader Arthur Scargill against Thatcher’s Conservative administration, which wanted to close unprofitable and heavily state-subsidised pits. In Goldthorpe’s High Street, it was party time outside the Union Jack Memorial Club, where a hundred people cheered, applauded and whistled when NUM banners were paraded past. Just hours after Thatcher’s funeral took place amid pomp and splendour in London’s St Paul’s Cathedral, a horse and cart pulled up outside the club in Goldthorpe bearing the replica

coffin containing an effigy of the former Conservative leader. A piper played as the “hearse” led a parade up the High Street. “She was willing to let children starve,” said Robbie Conroy, 66, a miner for more than 30 years who wore a hat with “rust in hell” written on it. “I came down here in 1963 from Scotland because our pit closed. We were promised a future. Twenty years later it closed,” he told AFP. “There used to be 179 pits and 198,300 miners. Now there are three pits and 1100 miners,” he said, adding that there were still millions of tonnes of coal under the ground going to waste.  - AFP

A dead man has been discovered in a West Perth unit by prospective tenants inspecting the property. A police spokeswoman says the man’s death is not suspicious. The real estate agent didn’t check the unit before letting people in on Monday. Real Estate Institute of Western Australia president David Airey says lessons will be learnt from the incident. “I’ll be saying to some of my staff this morning, and certainly agents hearing this will be saying, `Make sure you check, you’ve got to speak personally (with the home owner), go inside first’,” Mr Airey said.  - AAP

• Hold that handbag Women risk more than losing expensive sunglasses, cosmetics and a mobile phone if their handbag is snatched - they could also lose their identity, an insurance group says. A woman in Adelaide was arrested for a string of handbag thefts, and South Australia’s Royal Automobile Association (RAA) says women should consider the financial and personal implications if their bag is taken. “Many women underestimate the financial impact of having to replace their handbag and its contents,” senior claims manager Tony Phillips said. Considering typical handbag items like a mobile phone, sunglasses, a wallet and make-up, the replacement bill can easily top $1000. Add a designer bag, reading glasses, iPad and car keys and the bill could easily escalate to $3000 or more.  - AAP

• Toddler left A woman who left her toddler in a car in 34-degree heat told police she thought he was old enough to look after himself while she ducked in to the shops, a court has been told. A passer-by discovered the threeyear-old boy in the back of a car in a sunny spot at the Brookside Shopping Centre around midday on December 24 last year. The toddler was sweating profusely and crying. His mother, 37, admitted one count of leaving a child unattended.

• Soccer death A 17-year-old girl had died after tripping and falling during an indoor soccer game at an Adelaide school. The teenager made “heavy contact” with a wall during the fall at a special needs school in the city’s east, the Education Department said. She was taken to hospital after being given aid by school staff and ambulance officers, but her injuries were fatal. The teenager’s parents said their daughter loved her school, her teachers and friends and thoroughly enjoyed being part of the “wonderful school - AAP community.”

GEMINI (May 22nd Jun 21st) Surprises abound today as your ruler Mercury contacts the unpredictable energies of Uranus. A friend could make a last-minute change or you can find yourself becoming suddenly militant if the boss asks you to do yet another good turn for them. Your own mood and interests can also be variable but if you have a quirky sense of fun it can shine.


CANCER (Jun 22nd - Jul 23rd) You might find yourself wondering about a different kind of setting or lifestyle. If you are bored with your current situation or always seem to be dealing with the needs of others, this can be especially so. However, you can use this mood to your advantage to think of ways to refresh how you approach what you do now. Be innovative where possible.

LEO (Jul 24th - Aug 23rd) Your thinking can be inspired today. You can have enormous curiosity, probably much higher than usual. You might find yourself debating a subject for the fun of it or if you have ideals or causes that you hold dear, you may want to promote these and get others onside. Issues to do with the law, natural justice and contracts also feature.

VIRGO (Aug 24th Sep 23rd) If you see yourself as being a solid citizen, today can be a good opportunity to explore a different side of life. Anything to do with scratching beneath the surface and getting at people’s true motives can fascinate you. You may have some kind of consultation. Superficial considerations probably won’t cut it. You want more, much more.

LIBRA (Sep 24th Oct 23rd) Someone can contact you out of the blue and delight you, or you can find yourself being more combative in your approach to discussions. The angles you take up can be novel or the people that you are drawn towards could be unusual but brightminded. Settled? You and yours may clash but this may be no bad thing if it revives the spark.

Phone Enquiries: 308 6173 Online Enquiries:

SCORPIO (Oct 24th - Nov 22nd) Your nerves could be rattling today but then you could turn this into a positive by doing lots of things you have been putting off and giving yourself some time to think, yet achieve at a practical level. However, little things can seem to get under your skin more and you may find yourself suddenly speaking out and being ultra-critical Scorpio.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23rd - Dec 21st) You need to use your guile. Where possible, try to create your own environment and plans. If work or kids preclude this to begin with, do something more inventive or fun later in the day. Don’t sit back waiting for life to come to you, for you need to prime up your own stimulation and amusements. Head off out to a movie or meet a friend for a drink.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd - Jan 20th) You might stumble over an old family item today that could contain some interesting insights into your background or that of a forbearer. A conversation with a relative could be equally revealing. Yet it is going to be important to avoid being too defensive or changeable at this time. An idea for a home-based business can give you food for thought.

AQUARIUS (Jan 21st - Feb 19th) That side of you which loves a spark, buzzy exchanges and even a touch of the out of the ordinary is revved up today by Mercury’s connection with the erratic energies of your co-ruler Uranus. If you like people who are eccentric, left field or just plain fun, set up some time with them. Anything dull and repetitive will be hard to bear.


PISCES (Feb 20th Mar 20th) You may feel very rebellious today but especially about spending money. If you are having to keep a tight rein on your expenditure, the resentment can mount to such a degree that you just HAVE to splash out on something desirable. Then again, you may do something dramatic to slash your costs. Money matters will be fluid to say the least.


ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, April 19, 2013


Letter to Obama positive for ricin Preliminary tests on a letter addressed to US President Barack Obama are positive for the deadly poison ricin, the Federal Bureau of Investigation says. In a statement, the FBI said the investigation into the letter sent to Obama and another sent to Senator Roger Wicker was ongoing, adding there was “no indication of a connection” to the Boston Marathon bombings. The FBI said additional tests would be carried out over the next 24 to 48 hours to confirm the presence of ricin. The US Secret Service said the letter had been intercepted at a mail screening facility outside the White House on Tuesday, the same day authorities said a letter was sent to Wicker that also showed traces of ricin. Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan said the agency, which protects the president and his family, was working closely with the US Capitol Police and the FBI to trace the origins of the letter. At the US Capitol, sections of two Senate office buildings were briefly cordoned off amid reports of a suspicious package. Capitol Police later said results of tests conducted at the Hart Senate office building

were negative and the closed-off areas were reopened. US Capitol Police confirmed one man was being questioned. “Right now they are interviewing a person but that person is not in custody. He has not been detained,” a US Capitol Police officer told AFP. Senator Carl Levin said one of his staffers had discovered a “suspicious-looking letter” at a regional office in Michigan and handed it over to authorities for further investigation. The discovery of the letters rattled nerves following the bomb attacks near the finish line at the Boston Marathon on Monday that killed three people and injured more than 180 others. The episodes also recalled the mysterious series of letters laced with anthrax that were sent to politicians and journalists following the September 11 attacks in 2001, which killed five people and sickened 17 others. Congressional mail has been screened offsite since the 2001 incident. Ricin, when inhaled, can cause respiratory problems. Ingested orally, the protein is lethal in even minuscule quantities.  - AFP

Gays hitch across ditch Australian gay couples are lining up to wed in New Zealand under the country’s new same-sex marriage laws, Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young says. But the moment they arrive back in Australia, they’ll no longer be regarded as married. Senator Hanson-Young says New Zealand is ahead of Australia, which is falling behind the rest of the international community. “It’s less than a three-hour flight to get to New Zealand. Australian couples are now lining up, booking their tickets, getting their weddings organised.

The sad thing is when they arrive back home, they are no longer going to be recognised,” she said. New Zealand’s parliament passed the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill 77-44 on Wednesday. The move was greeted with cheers and applause from onlookers and sparked celebrations around the country. However, gay couples keen to get married will have to wait four months while the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs gets organised for licence applica- AAP tions. 

Kylie Minogue will be honoured before an A-List Hollywood crowd next month for her public crusade against breast cancer. The Entertainment Industry Foundation’s (EIF) Women’s Cancer Research Fund, which boasts Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg as honorary chairs, announced Minogue, a breast cancer survivor, will accept the 2013 Courage Award “for her fight against breast cancer and dedication to raising awareness for the disease”. The all-star event, titled An Unforgettable Evening, will be held in Beverly Hills on May 2. It will be hosted by comedian Chelsea Handler while Grammy Award-winning singer Bruno Mars will perform. The Nat King Cole Award will be presented to fashion designer Carolina Herrera for her charitable works and contributions to the EIF Women’s Cancer Research Fund. The event marks the 16th anniversary of the Women’s Cancer Research Fund which continues to raise support for innovative cancer research. The fund supports innovative research, education and outreach directed at the development of more effective approaches to the early diagnosis, treatment and prevention of all women’s cancers. - AAP

An electronic fork that vibrates when you eat too fast has gone on sale in the US, with its French inventors claiming it can help combat obesity and digestive issues. Those who contribute at least $US89 ($A86) on the crowd funding website Kickstarter will get a HAPIfork, which comes in blue, green and pink, ahead of its planned general release to consumers in the United States and Europe later this year. “While our product is still a prototype, we’re thrilled by the global response so far,” said Fabrice Boutain, founder of the product’s California-based developer HAPILABS, in a statement. “We believe this is affirmation of the growing consumer health awareness movement to gain better control of issues impacting weight and digestive issues as well as more serious issues such as diabetes and other chronic conditions.” First shown at the Consumer Electronics Show, the HAPIfork - the brainchild of French inventor Jacques Lepine - is based on research that suggests people living in a fast-paced world can lose weight by eating more slowly. The gadget, which is dishwasher safe, includes LED warning lights, a USB connector and software for computers and smartphones enabling users to monitor their progress towards a healthier pace of eating.  - AFP

Petrol prices are heading down towards the $2 mark with BP announcing a 3c price cut yesterday as international oil prices tumble. BP said it was dropping the price of 91 unleaded to 204.9c a litre and diesel 2c a litre to 142.9c a litre. The company said it was its sixth price decrease in the last month. However, the AA said if petrol prices matched the fall in oil prices unleaded could already be under $2, where they were nine months ago. “There’s every chance we could get prices down under $2 in the next days or weeks. Petrol prices are coming down thin and fast - they’re coming down quickly but they’re not enough. The AA’s monitoring of commodity prices shows the fuel prices should fall another 4c to 5c a litre.” said spokesman Mark Stockdale. World oil prices have fallen US$10 (NZ$11.84) a barrel during the past two weeks while the Kiwi dollar has remained near post-float highs, the Associated Press reported. A dip overnight was due to a United States Energy Department report that suggested more drivers were staying home, giving them no reason to fill up their tanks. Oil dropped $2.04, or 2.3 per cent, to close at US$86.68 a barrel in New York. In London, Brent crude, which is used to price oil used by many US refiners, dropped US$2.22, or 2.2 per cent, to US$97.69, the lowest level since last July. The surprise drop in petrol demand followed a series of weak economic reports around the world, starting with a disappointing US employment report two weeks ago. This week, a report of slower than expected economic growth in China helped trigger a broad sell-off in commodities that included the biggest one-day drop in the price of gold in 30 years. A BP spokesman that in Newe Zeland, “classic economic fundamentals” were kicking in.  - APNZ

Feds leader joins world farming group Federated Farmers president Bruce Wills has been appointed to the board of a group which represents farmers from more than 50 countries. Wills will step onto the World Farmers’ Organisation board as its Oceania representative, replacing Australia’s Jock Laurie. His appointment to the WFO - which was “like the United Nations of farmers”- assured New Zealand a key voice on the important global body, Wills said. “My hope is to use my board position to showcase the excellent people resource we have in New Zealand that will help national and international farming to flourish.” Wills is currently in Japan attending the WFO’s third general assembly, where Federated Farmers has helped broker a breakthrough trade agreement.

Charge for drinking water, Govt told

New Zealand and Australia had been working with other member nations for nearly a year to push through the free trade policy, Wills said. “This talks about some pretty comprehensive dismantling of government barriers to trade.” When Oceania first proposed the free trade policy at the last general assembly in Rome, only one country other than New Zealand and Australia had voted in support, Wills said. In a country like Japan where the average farm size was 2.2 hectares and the average farmer age 67-years-old, free trade was seen as a threat, he said. “I was very encouraged by the maturity shown by member countries here at this assembly. “We’ve had to work through the concerns and in the end, this is what we came up with.”


The WFO would now be able to take a united stance on free trade, he said. “We represent the vast majority of farmers in the world and we’ll be sharing this policy with organisations all over the world.” Kindred organisations like Beef+LambNZ, the Ministry for Primary Industries and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade also played a part in securing the policy. The WFO was set up to improve the economic situation and livelihood of farmers, their families and rural communities by creating policies and advocating on their behalf. It also aims to contribute to world food security in a time when world food demand is expected to - APNZ increase by at least 70 per cent by 2050.

All local councils should start charging ratepayers for both drinking and waste water by volume, while new water infrastructure should be delivered regionally because of its high cost for smaller communities, says a government advisory group report. Chaired by Wellington Regional Council chair Fran Wilde, the report was quietly released on the Department of Internal Affairs website yesterday, and is said by close observers to have been watered down to appease local government political sensitivities. Among the most controversial recommendations is one that councils should “consider moving delivery of potable water and wasterwater to regional level, with the management and implementation of such delivery at arm’s length from political decisions” by using a council-owned corporate structure. The original report recommended councils be instructed to regionalise water services, rather than merely consider them. Water New Zealand said in a statement it supported “rationalising water services and placing them at arms-length from local political control.” “However, the real concern Water New Zealand has is whether the reforms proposed by the expert group looking at local government infrastructure will be implemented,” said the lobby’s chief executive, Murray Gibb. “The need for reform has been known for a long time, but to date little progress has been made.” “Ratepayers and taxpayers will get improved services and better value for their money if the reforms are implemented. The proposals accord with industry best practice and should be supported,” he said. The EAG report also proposes creating a Minister of Water and ensuring that all water policy issues are led from one government agency.  - APNZ

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, April 19, 2013


Rakaia chasing a rare scalp By Jonathan Leask Rakaia will be out to run rampant over a wounded Methven side in the fourth round of the combined Country cup rugby competition tomorrow. Methven have had the wood on Rakaia, having not lost to the boys’ in blue since they returned to senior ranks in 2008, but will go in as heavy underdogs. After back-to-back losses to start the new season, Methven have been hit hard by injury in the early part of the season and struggled to build momentum. “It’s hard to get consistency when we are moving players around and playing them out of position,” Methven coach Dale Palmer said. “But we aren’t making excuses. The guys we put on the field are all capable and still have to step up.”

Despite being competitive in patches Methven has suffered two big losses to Southbridge and Burnham and will need a more rounded performance to hold off Rakaia. Rakaia burst out of the blocks with back-to-back bonus point wins before being undone by defending champions Southbridge last weekend 17-10. Aware of their recent poor record in the local derby, Rakaia will be looking to bounce back and inflict more misery on Methven. Southern are also without a win in section two and have the long road trip north to Glenmark. After the brutal battle with Celtic things don’t get any easier for Hampstead, hosting the unbeaten Lincoln. Celtic will look to post backto-back wins when they head to Waihora.

Point to prove on netball court By Jonathan Leask The second round of Mid Canterbury netball grading has some senior teams with a point to prove tomorrow. There are 11 teams vying for the eight spots in Senior A netball with Celtic A, Hampstead A and Rakaia Blue staking the early claims on a spot in the top competition going undefeated after the first round of grading. Hampstead A have a tough draw, taking on both of last year’s finalists in Methven A and then Celtic A. Rakaia Blue’s case will also be put to the acid test taking on Celtic A and Collegiate A.

Defending premiers Methven A were tipped up by United A in their opening effort and will look to make a statement taking on both Hampstead A and B. However, with three teams set to miss the cut, Celtic B, Hampstead B and Methven B have all the work to do after losing both their matches last week. Celtic B face the College A and B teams, which each picked up a win in the first round. Hampstead B have College A and Methven A while Methven B have College B and then United A. After their mixed start, going down to College B but beating Methven A, United A will also have an intriguing matchup with Collegiate A.

• City closing the gap Carlos Tevez struck late on to give Manchester City a 1-0 win against unlucky Wigan in their FA Cup final dress rehearsal at Eastlands yesterday. Argentina striker Tevez netted his 11th league goal of the season seven minutes from full time to narrow the gap to 13 points between City and Premier League leaders Manchester United, who only drew at West Ham. City’s win could delay United’s title celebrations as their bitter rivals will only clinch the trophy in the next round of fixtures if Roberto Mancini’s men lose at Tottenham on Sunday while United beat Aston Villa on Monday. - AFP

• Ko back in the pack World No 1 amateur golfer Lydia Ko is in a share of 52nd place after round one of the Lotte LPGA Championship in Hawaii. The 15-year-old from the Gulf Harbour Country Club, who will celebrate her 16th birthday next week, carded a one-under par 71 at the Ko Olina Golf Club in Oahu yesterday to be seven shots back from round-one leader Thai professional Ariya Jutanugarn. Ko needs a good round in tomorrow’s second round to keep alive her record of never missing a cut in the 15 professional events she has played. - APNZ

• Drug tests for Kiwis Rachel Bower was one of 750 who turned out to compete in the Mt Somers mountain bike race last year.

Mountain Bikes mob the Mount By Jonathan Leask Mt Somers will be bursting at the seams on Sunday with over 600 mountain bike riders taking over the normally tranquil little town. The eighth Mt Somers Mountain Bike Race looks set to be another success and continues its reputation as one of the best rides in the South Island. “As of last night we had just over 400 online entries, which is already slightly up on last year,” Mayfield and District Lions Club

spokesman Brent Murdoch said. “Online registration is open until Saturday night and we usually get upwards of 200 entries on the day. At least a third of those are usually returnees and the rest are new riders.” The feature race is the 35km Challenge, but there are also the 30km intermediate ride and the 20km novice recreational ride, over a course that rides through the iconic scenery of the foothills of the Southern Alps while also able to view the Canterbury plains. “It is a rare opportunity to

traverse the slopes of Mt Somers Station. “The course is mainly based on private property and the race is a unique opportunity to ride over the picturesque landscape and terrain. “Utilising farm and four-wheel drive tracks the course passes by historic lime works, World War Two ammunition storage bunkers, herds of red deer and has fantastic views of the Canterbury plains.” He knows what the riders have in store visually, but as for the riding itself Murdoch isn’t so sure. “I have been out on the course

before but in a four wheel drive. “I’ve never actually ridden it because I’ve always been doing something on the organising side of things.” The event is the brainchild of the Mayfield and District Lions Club, and since its conception in 2007, the race has generated more than $81,000 for the community. The proceeds from this year’s race will be given to Ronald McDonald House South Island, and a portion of the funds will be gifted back to local non-profit groups around the surrounding district.

All quiet on the home turf By Jonathan Leask Mid Canterbury’s senior hockey contingent all play away in Timaru tomorrow in the Mid-South Canterbury competition. The Wakanui men had last weekend off for a wedding and both sides return to the turf looking to remain unbeaten.

Defending champions Wakanui Black have two wins so far and take on the also unbeaten Cambridge, who had two draws before last rounds 8-2 win over Excelsior. Wakanui Blue have been warming to their work to start the new season and will be lining up a good hit out against an Excelsior side that has conceded 19 goals in their last two outings.

Tinwald has faded late in their two games back in the top flight and know they can’t afford to drop off against the quality sides, a lesson they learnt the hard way going down 13-0 to Wakanui Black a couple of weeks ago. This weekend they stare down another tough day at the office if they let their opponent run the show, with the Northern Hearts

side already in solid form with back-to-back victories to start their campaign. In the women’s competition Hampstead are also coming off a lacklustre final quarter as they line up their toughest task, taking on defending champions St Andrews, who have fired in at least six goals in all three of their wins in the competition to date.

Seniors chasing Rojas confirms move to Europe away victory All Whites’ winger Marco Rojas has confirmed he will leave Melbourne Victory at the end of the month and move to an as-yet unnamed European club. Rojas’ future has been the subject of much speculation during a season in which he won the Johnny Warren Medal for the A-League’s best player while scoring 15 goals and accumulating eight assists. The 21-year-old, who made his start in professional football at the Wellington Phoenix, was always destined to make the move to European football and he has decided to do so sooner rather than later. Rojas will remain with the Victory until the conclusion of post-season training, before leaving the club for an unknown destination. Rojas was the subject of rumours linking him with European giants

Liverpool and Juventus during the season, while he has also attracted significant interest from Germany’s Bundesliga. “I have absolutely loved my time at Melbourne Victory, from the always-loyal fans to the support of my team-mates as well as the coaches and the staff - they have all definitely helped make me who I am today and I can’t thank everybody enough,” Rojas said in a Victory statement. “It’s every footballer’s dream to play in Europe and I’m over the moon to be able to say I’m about to live that dream very soon.” Melbourne Victory Coach Ange Postecoglou was left with mixed emotions about the announcement, extremely happy for the player while understandably disappointed for his team.


“We wish Marco all the best as he continues on his very impressive football journey,” Postecoglou said. “While we would have loved to have seen him stay here at Melbourne Victory for a little longer, we knew we couldn’t stand in the way of his European ambitions. “He’s rightly attracted plenty of attention around the globe for his efforts this year. He’s obviously a very talented young man and has been rewarded for his stellar efforts this season by winning the prestigious Johnny Warren Medal and the Young Footballer of the Year.” Rojas became the first player to achieve that double since Mark Viduka, providing some consolation for the youngster after the Victory had their season ended by Central Coast Mariners last weekend.  - APNZ

Marco Rojas: ‘Unknown destination’

Hay stable firing on all cylinders down south By Sue Newman

photo kirsty clay 280212-kg-042

John Hay and Jimmy Johnstone on the track: ‘Like going to the cashflow machine every week’

Trainer John Hay is running red hot. Last weekend at Winton his two top horses Jimmy Johnstone and Eric Clapton earned him a hefty pay day, and on Sunday the punters are picking him to score a another double at Ascot Park. Hay is typically laid back about the success of his two stable stars. In spite of Jimmy Johnstone going into the Southern Country Cup final as favourite and Eric Clapton also tipped as a favoured runner to take out the $40,000 Alabar Southern Supremacy Stakes, Hay isn’t talking up his chances. “I’ll just be pleased if they run well,” he said. “They’re both looking good and they seem pretty good in themselves.” Hay stayed south after the Winton meeting, preferring to give the pair a break from travelling. Neither seems too fazed by his new surroundings and its just business

as usual when it comes to track work, he said. Jimmy Johnstone has had a stellar year, one Hay describes as “like going to the cashflow machine every week.” And his stake earnings back that up – 12 starts this season, for five wins, four seconds and a third, with $48,816 in the bank. The four-year-old P-47-Sammi Franco gelding has been with Hay from day one. He was named after Glasgow’s Celtic football player Jimmy Johnstone and he might be a rising star himself, but he’s not showing any mercurial star like behavioural flaws. Three-year-old Eric Clapton is bred and owned by Rakaia’s Mike McGuire and he’s a horse who has been a perfect gentleman from day one, Hay said. He’s in his first racing season and from 10 starts the American IdealJazz Tanner gelding has notched up five wins for total stake earnings of $34,566. Hay’s hoping he’ll score a share of

Sunday’s $40,000 stakes to boost that. When it comes to who’s likely to win on Sunday, Hay isn’t playing favourites. “They’re both good horses and I’m pleased to have them in my stable,” he said. Both horses are on the leader board for the Queens Birthday Harness Jewels race day at Ashburton, but Hay’s playing their rankings down. “It’s not the end of the world if they don’t make the Jewels. “I’m not even thinking about that yet.” While both horses are in good racing form going into Sunday’s meeting, Hay said they’ll need a bit of luck on their side to pull a double of wins off. He’s never won a Country Cup before but has twice had his name as trainer and driver on the Supremacy Stakes wall of fame. Another in the Hay stable, two-yearold Crusader Banner has also been paying her way down south, running third at Winton.

New Zealand drugs testers have swooped on the Kiwis team ahead of tonight’s Anzac test against Australia in Canberra. Sydney’s Daily Telegraph newspaper reported that New Zealand players and officials were stunned when a large contingent of officials from Drug Free Sport New Zealand arrived at the team hotel on Tuesday night. “They certainly turned up in numbers,” one Kiwi player was quoted as saying. It was understood eight to 10 players were tested. he newspaper said the swoop shocked the Australian camp because drug-testing rarely happens during the lead-up to a test. - APNZ

• Battle for Sonny Bill Another tug-of-war between rugby league and rugby union is developing for the services of dual international Sonny Bill Williams. Not for his on-field prowess, but for his off-field impact. Williams’ former Super Rugby-winning team-mates the Chiefs are hankering to have the sought-after code-hopper at Allianz Stadium for Friday night’s clash with the NSW Waratahs. But the New Zealand rugby league team is also expecting the injured superstar in the sheds at the same time when the Kiwis tackle Australia in a one-off Test in Canberra. Chiefs coach Dave Rennie, confident of luring the 27-year-back across the Tasman, was assuming Williams would be supporting his side on Friday night after SBW made a bee-line to his old teammates when they arrived in Sydney on Thursday night. “We were only here for about 30 minutes and we caught up with Sonny,” Rennie said. - AAP

• Lakers into playoffs The Los Angeles Lakers secured the last berth in the NBA playoffs before their regular-season finale even tipped off yesterday, thanks to Utah’s loss to Memphis. The Grizzlies held the Jazz to their lowest points total of the season, triumphing 86-70 in Memphis to eliminate Utah from post-season contention. Even if the Jazz had won, the Lakers could have booked a Western Conference berth with a win over Houston. But once Utah were out of the picture, the Lakers and Rockets were battling for a better seeding in the Western Conference.-AFP

• Strauss’ warning Triple Ashes-winning former England captain Andrew Strauss predicts Australia will defy their doubters by putting up a huge fight in the coming series. Strauss, who captained England’s past two Ashes wins and played in another, is confident his nation can claim a third successive title on home soil in July-August. But the retired batsman says talk from some fans and pundits of England whitewashing the fiveTest series is far-fetched. “I don’t think it is going to be that clearcut,” Strauss said yesterday. “I think Australia are a bit better than people give them credit for - NZH at the moment.”

• Reynolds still a Dog Canterbury skipper Michael Ennis has hailed the re-signing of five-eighth Josh Reynolds, saying it’s a great day for the struggling NRL club. Reynolds has put pen to paper on a fouryear deal that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2017 season. The 24-year-old has come through the ranks at the cellar-dwelling Bulldogs and Ennis said it was satisfying to see Reynolds commit his future to Canterbury in spite of interest from other clubs. - AAP


ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday April 19, 2013


Pisi, Smylie to reunite “It’s really good to finally come here after a couple of years being apart and get an opportunity to play with each other,” Pisi said. “We have big expectations on each other so if you see us arguing a bit on the field then that’s probably why. “We are best mates so it’s just putting that aside and really getting out there and performing as a combination.” Although Pisi and Smylie are set to have a school reunion of sorts tonight, the combination in the Hurricanes’ starting XV that has garnered more attention this week is that of their firstfive and fullback. Five-test All Black Beauden Barrett

By Daniel Richardson

Hurricanes’ first-five Tusi Pisi has played with plenty of halfbacks in his 10-year professional career but few are as familiar as Chris Smylie. The pair are best mates, have played together since their days in the 1st XV at Massey High School in Auckland as well as a couple of seasons for Harbour in the national provincial competition. Tonight’s game against the Western Force at Westpac Stadium will mark the first occasion they have started a game as a halfback and first-five combination for the Hurricanes, and it has been a long time coming. Both were signed as insurance policies for young guns TJ Perenara and Beauden Barrett last year, but Smylie suffered a season-ending right shoulder injury in the final warm-up game and missed the entire 2012 campaign. Smylie, 31, and Pisi, 30, have been used extensively from the bench this year but the time has finally come for the long-time friends to wear the No 9 and 10 jerseys.

has again been installed to start at No 15, despite having piloted the team to a 4-2 start at first-five before being moved to fullback for last weekend’s 28-6 loss to the Blues. Pisi played No 10 last Saturday to accommodate Barrett’s shift and Hurricanes’ coach Mark Hammett said the pair deserved another opportunity to reprise

those roles again tonight. Having both players on the field gives the Hurricanes an impressive one-two punch with the boot, but with class throughout their backline, their running game is their strength. Pisi made only one start at fiveeighth last year and said it was a relief to be given another chance to begin the game from the opening whistle this week. “That’s probably a big thing, just trying to get our combination right and getting another start’s just another confidence builder for me and also for the team to get used to how I play.” Pisi, who has played 10 tests for Samoa and three for the Pacific Islanders, said he welcomed Barrett playing fullback. “Yeah, Beauden’s great. “His communication’s great, he can run one side, he’s an option and hopefully we can build on

that combination this week.” Tonight’s game shapes as a pivotal one for the Hurricanes, who are in eighth spot on the Super Rugby standings. They have two more home games before they head away to South Africa and need to wrap up wins against the Force and the Stormers, who they meet in Palmerston North next week, as they vie to keep pace with the top six. Despite the Western Force’s two-win-six-loss record they’re no mugs and managed to topple the Crusaders 16-14 in Perth last week. They’re not known for their ability to win on the road but they have the competition’s equalleading try-scorer in Alfi Mafi, who has crossed the line five times this season, while halfback Alby Mathewson will definitely be keen to produce a big game against his old side. Meanwhile, Hurricanes’ hooker Dane Coles has been ruled out of rugby for up to six weeks with a fractured eye socket, and Motu Matu’u will start tonight’s game with Ash Dixon moving to the bench. - APNZ

Canes halfback Tusi Pisi

Victory ‘vital’ for the Chiefs By Patrick McKendry

It takes a bit to rattle Dave Rennie, but the Chiefs coach has made no secret of the way his team have been struggling to score points since their return from South Africa. He is obviously unhappy and he has shown it in the selection of his team to play the Waratahs in Sydney tonight, which includes six changes in personnel. The 31-23 defeat by the Reds in Hamilton last weekend was the culmination of a few scratchy performances on attack, and, significantly, the table-topping Brumbies have overtaken the Chiefs in terms of points scored. Rennie’s men remain on top of the New Zealand conference, two points ahead of the Blues, and second overall behind the Brumbies, but a loss to the Waratahs could result in a major reshuffle on the leaderboard. The Blues’ bye this weekend gives them four points, which

could allow Sir John Kirwan’s men to overtake them. The Chiefs created opportunities against the Reds, but mistakes were costly. Before their bye they scored two tries against the Blues and one try over the Highlanders. A likely reason for their relative misfiring is the way they have been taken on up front. The Reds, Blues and Highlanders have all attacked their breakdown, with the Queenslanders also creating problems for their lineout. A harassed team is more likely to make mistakes. It’s probably also a confidence thing which brings us back to the match against the Waratahs, who possess threats in Israel Folau, Adam Ashley-Cooper and Drew Mitchell out wide. A victory will keep the Chiefs machine rolling, but a convincing one would give it a turbo kick. A defeat would hurt and, while it wouldn’t necessarily cause doubts to creep in, the attack question will be back louder - APNZ than ever.

Whitelocks out in force for South Island derby Crusaders lock Sam Whitelock will earn his 50th Super Rugby cap when his side host the Highlanders in Christchurch tomorrow night, and one of his brothers could also achieve the same milestone in the game. Outside back Adam has been named on the bench for the game and if he is summoned from the pine he will bring up his half century. Sam’s return to the starting XV is one of three changes from Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder to the side who lost 16-14 to the Western Force in Perth last week as flanker Matt Todd and wing Zac Guildford will also start. All four Whitelock brothers are named in the match-day 22 for this weekend, with Luke at No 8 and George at blindside flanker, while their cousin Ben Funnell is the reserve hooker. “The team are excited to be home again and playing at AMI Stadium. “We’ve been travelling for three weeks and there is nothing like hearing the roar of the home crowd.

“We hope Crusader fans will give the boys a home-coming to remember,” Blackadder said. “There is nothing like a classic southern derby to bring out the best in both the Crusaders and the Highlanders. “It is always a great game with an amazing atmosphere and with both teams hungry for the win there is sure to be plenty of passion on the field this Saturday.” The Crusaders are in ninth place on the Super Rugby ladder after eight rounds, while the Highlanders are still searching for their first win after starting the season with seven straight losses. - APNZ

Blues looking at new setup By Wynne Gray

A syndicate keen on bankrolling and running the Blues hopes the deal will be completed soon. Talks between the group, headed by businessman Murray Bolton, and the NZRU have advanced as the Blues’ playing fortunes have improved. The syndicate plans a multimilliondollar investment with a new board set up to run the Blues next season amid ideas about creating an enhanced professional set-up. While the Blues will continue to play at Eden Park, one idea is that they will work and train at a new venue away from their current set-up in Mt Albert. Any plans will have to be ratified by a new six-person board made up of three independent members and three from Auckland, North Harbour and Northland. A new executive would manage the team and contract out other services while the Auckland union, who have often doubled up on Blues duty, will be left to concentrate more on the ITM Cup and club rugby. The NZRU likes the scheme because it cuts some of their risk, gives them a cash injection and should sharpen franchise governance. Stakeholders also believe it will

decrease some of the petty bickering among member provinces, conflict about player signings and feelings that the Blues have been used to fix Auckland’s woes at the expense of other provinces. “It’s going well, it’s close to being finished. “We are preparing legal documents,” NZRU chief executive Steve Tew confirmed yesterday. “That was the last information I had at the board meeting and, of course, until people sign it. We’ve had draft agreements looked at for a long time. I’d be surprised if it’s not done in the next two or three weeks.” When contacted about the deal, Bolton confirmed it was progressing. “There’s no sense though in me adding anything at this stage,” he said. Bolton owns Corporate Cabs, is chairman of the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust and is a former chief executive of Brierley Investments and the Skellerup Group. He is apparently passionate about rugby and has grandiose long-term ideas about creating an improved professional Blues franchise to rival other global sporting groups. Tew said a new board would determine any changes. “They’re going to run the place, they’re taking the risk and they can do what they like within the realms of being sensible,” he said. - NZH

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, April 19, 2013




Kiwis need to get on their bikes One of the most telling things said in the leadup to tonight’s Anzac test was uttered by centre Greg Inglis when he opined that integrating back into the Australian setup was like riding a bicycle. The Kiwis think this way, too, after nearly five years under Stephen Kearney and often cite their off-field togetherness as one of their biggest strengths, but their bike is more like a Raleigh Twenty. It’s not as slick as Australia’s top-of-the-range racing version and might also have a couple of wonky spokes. It’s hard to argue with Inglis’ assessment. The Australian players all know what they have to do tonight, and the Queenslanders among them have played alongside each other for state and country so many times they virtually know what happens next. It is, as Inglis says, like riding a bike. The Kiwis share similarities with NSW in this respect. Whereas New Zealand have won only one Anzac test, in 1998, NSW have lost the last seven State of Origin series and many can’t see either statistic reversing until the combined powers of Cameron Smith, Johnathan Thurston, Cooper Cronk and Billy Slater finally wane. The Kiwis, however, don’t have that

long to wait. They have a World Cup to defend later this year and need to find a way to threaten Australia. If they come close, it will be comforting to know they did it without Sonny Bill Williams, Jeremy Smith, Benji Marshall and Sam Kasiano, who can all hurt Australia. It might even be a good thing some of that quartet aren’t playing, especially Marshall, because it will force others to step up. One of the biggest threats for the Kangaroos is complacency. They are overwhelming favourites - the

bookies have them at $1.14 to New Zealand’s $6 - and Smith admitted they are only human. It’s why coach Tim Sheens has mentioned to his players this week events like the 2008 World Cup final, 2010 Four Nations final and 2005 Tri Nations final which were all won by New Zealand. “You bet I do,” he said. “I remind them and a lot of those guys were involved in some of those. That just shows that we might win a lot of games but in the big clutch games the Kiwis can come to the fore.” In many ways, the Kiwis are like the French rugby side at the World Cup. Les Bleus rarely beat the All Blacks outside of World Cup years, but possess the ability and belief they can upset the All Blacks once at the four-yearly tournament. France approached the 2011 Rugby World Cup in a shrewd manner, not worrying too greatly if they were beaten by New Zealand in pool play because their real target was the final should they make it. We all know how close they came to winning the big prize. The Kiwis have the ability to beat Australia every once in a while, especially at a tournament when they can establish combinations. A defeat to Australia tonight won’t be unexpected, but the Kiwis need to at least give them plenty to think about over the next six months. Otherwise their bike will need plenty of work on it. - APNZ

Kangaroos wary of ‘new Benji’ two most dynamic creative forces in Marshall and Sonny Bill Williams. Johnson will team with Kieran Foran in the halves for the first time, with Australian coach Tim Sheens pinpointing the unpredictability of 22-year-old Johnson as a major danger for his side. “Shaun takes up the Marshalltype game and we’ve played Kieran

Joyce (left) and Charlie Cleghorn are ready to roll for the start of the Indoor bowls season on Sunday. By Jonathan Leask After a glorious sunny summer playing outdoors the winter weather has set in and the bowlers have headed indoors. There are 12 indoor bowls clubs across the district that come under the Ashburton Association umbrella, and most are already rolling. “Several of the clubs will have started playing already if not most of them,” Ashburton Bowls Association spokesperson Gay Lee said. The Indoor bowls season proper starts on Sunday with the Open Championship Fours at the Indoor Bowls Stadium on McNally Street, the first of the association’s championship fixtures.

The representative season comes around quickly with Ashburton hosting North Canterbury next weekend. “We are pretty lucky this year with most of our representative fixtures at home.” Ashburton will also be sending representatives to the National championship in Rotorua in June. Several local bowlers may also be eyeing up South Island honours, with the South touring the North Island this year. At club level, the interclub series begins on May 9 while the Harper Challenge Trophy offers another interclub competition with a difference. It’s a knockout round robin where the previous season’s holders start with the trophy and the other 11 clubs are assigned a challenge date

throughout the season and the winner of each match advances onto the next challenger, while the loser is eliminated. “It’s the luck of the draw when your club gets a challenge as it’s drawn out of the hat, but whoever wins the last game is awarded the trophy.” Last year’s winner Wakanui start as the holders and Tinwald have drawn the first challenge. The winner of that match goes onto the next challenger, with the winner of the last match keeping the trophy. As well as the interclub, Ashburton championships and rep duty, there are chances for individual honours in the New Zealand Henselite Singles, a zonal champion of champion singles competition.
