Traffic lights on cards for Tinwald

We should take heart from this, it’s significant progress in what we’ve been trying to achieve over the past decade. They haven’t identified any final solution at this stage but lights are the probable and likely option

By Sue Newman Traffic lights in Tinwald have inched a little closer with the New Zealand Transport Agency accepting the need to address traffic flow issues along State Highway One. The Ashburton District Council has been battling for several years to have the agency put traffic lights on its agenda, and in its latest report on traffic issues to the council, the agency has given its strongest indication yet that lights are on its radar. It has presented the council with a strategic case for improving traffic flow through Tinwald and has said the earliest it could fund any work is in the 2015/2016 year. NZTA was now keen to progress the project and had indicated it was happy to both facilitate investigations and to fund these. The agency, however, indicated

Rob Rouse it had to have an open mind on what the best option would be, said council operations manager Rob Rouse. “The council’s focus is on traffic signals but the scope of investigation work will look at all alternatives and options, but cost-benefit ratios don’t seem to

be a deal breaker,” he said. Reaching the point where NZTA had recognised that there was an issue and that a project needed to be developed was a giant step forward, Mr Rouse said. “We should take heart from this, it’s significant progress in what we’ve been trying to achieve over the last decade. They haven’t identified any final solution at this stage but lights are the probable and likely option. They’re saying they’ll progress the project and they are more open towards their funding role in the project.”

The council has set aside $100,000 in this year’s budget to move the project forward however councillors believe lights should be funded by NZTA without council input because they will provide a solution to a state highway problem. Yesterday the council’s operations committee agreed to support the agency’s strategic case for traffic flow improvements in Tinwald. The next stage will see business case to be prepared on the various options. This is likely to start within the next six months.

When mess and muck are left behind by disrespectful locals in Ashburton’s CBD, the question over who cleans it up is always the first. Most would hope those responsible would return to tidy the mess, but more often than not they don’t. So who is left with the problem? Is it the business owner, the police or the council who is responsible? Ashburton District Council community planning manager Gavin Thomas said it was not the council’s legal responsibility to clean it up but with incidents like yesterday’s defecation on a business doorstep – it did have an obligation. “It is fair to say there is an expectation from some in the community that we should do this,” Mr Thomas said. “The council does have wider obligations regarding the maintenance of public health and this is why, in the absence of anyone else cleaning it up, council will usually do this.” Although it was unfortunate the “sad individuals” did not get caught, Ashburton police, security firms and town centre ambassadors work tirelessly from Thursday to Saturday to maintain order in the town centre. Senior Sergeant Grant Russell said police were limited with what they could do in yesterday’s incident, but businesses may need to put in further preventative measures, such as surveillance cameras, to deter disorderly behaviour. - Myles Hume

e are now almost in touching distance of offering you the new revamped compact Guardian and during the coming week I will be filling you in a bit more on what you can expect in your daily newspaper. Forgive me if I may be repeating myself on certain points, but not all our readers have seen my regular update so I want to make sure all readers get as much information as possible. Yesterday I was pleased to make one reader happy by informing him that our new puzzles page will include a Code-cracker. And he is not alone. Almost as long as I have been back at the Guardian, readers have pleaded to include this popular puzzle so I was glad the opportunity arose to source an entire new puzzle page that will hopefully keep all puzzle enthusiasts happy. Currently the Guardian offers the readers a daily quick crossword puzzle and sudoku and a giant puzzle on the weekends. In 10 days’ time however you will find a full page, six days of the week, which will include a cryptic crossword, a quick crossword, two sudokus and a code-cracker puzzle. We will also move our horoscope onto the puzzle page. The Monday to Friday Guardian will be moving from the traditional broadsheet format to the modern, convenient compact size on July 29, so next Friday’s edition may also be a collectors’ item as it will be the last one in the original format after 133 years and 242 days. The following week you will see a much improved Friday paper with a revamped Real Estate section and a new full-colour racing form guide.

Irene Williams was disgusted to find someone behaved “worse than an animal” when they defecated on her business’ doorstep early yesterday. Mrs Williams, the owner of Ashburton Factory Shop on Tancred Street, arrived for work about 7.45am yesterday, when she found human faeces on the recessed front doorstep of her business. “I have seen vomit, urine and spilt booze on the doorstep but never anything to this extent,” a visibly upset Mrs Williams said. “How do I feel? I’m just fed up with people around here being worse than animals.” Mrs Williams contacted the Ashburton District Council about 8am, who sent a contractor to her business shortly after 9am to clear the mess. Other nearby business owners said there had been issues in the past around the corner of Tancred and East Streets, as drunken patrons visit nearby bars. Undercurrent Board Store owner Lisa Reid said empty booze bottles, food wrappers and vomit were a problem in the area. She reviewed video footage from early yesterday that showed young people in the area about 12.20am. Senior Sergeant Grant Russell, of Ashburton, said business owners had a right to report such incidents to police, but they were limited as to where they could go with the case. However, he noted a spike in activity about the area. “To a point, since the Arcadia opened up there has been a little more movement between premises but only a fool wouldn’t expect that. “There’s a bit of drunkenness and tomfoolery ... but when it comes down to it I don’t believe there’s been a major influx (in bad behaviour).” Arcadia owner Paul Millichamp said his staff checked the block, including doorways, from East Street to Cass Street after closing at 3.30am each night as part of an agreement with neighbouring businesses. He said the incident was unfortunate, but there was nothing he could do after the bar closed and patrons had gone home. Kelly’s Café and Bar is situated near the troubled corner. Its owner Greg King said bars were often blamed for disorderly behaviour in the street, but it was down to individuals to take responsibility for their behaviour. “A lot of the time these incidents don’t happen in bars, it’s when they are outside,” he said.

Attitude to drink driving ‘poor’ By Myles Hume A crack-down on rural Mid Canterbury motorists has uncovered “a poor attitude” towards drink driving, according to the region’s road policing boss. Operation Rural has been underway for six weeks in the Mid and South Canterbury policing district where an extra 10 roading police have been patrolling rural roads every three weeks to nab law-breaking motorists. Canterbury road policing manager Inspector Al Stewart said police had already prosecuted

Walnut Avenue traffic solution like to be costly

too many drink drivers. “We have found the general attitude towards drink driving and drug driving is pretty poor. “We have found people in the rural community are really good at looking after themselves in every respect - except for driving.” Since June 10, 15 people have been convicted in the Ashburton District Court for excess breath or blood alcohol levels, the highest reading showing 994mcg. Mr Stewart hoped the heightened police presence would reverberate around the “tight-knit” Mid Canterbury community, however he said there were motorists who

were surprised police were operating in isolated areas. “I think it’s a double-pronged issue, there’s probably a belief out there that there’s not much enforcement in rural areas, but that’s going to increase in the next 12 months. “The other thing is driving is a necessity for some people in rural areas and there can be a lack of public services or ways to get home, but drink driving and drug driving is never a necessity.” An Environment, Science and Research report compiled for police found nearly half of the drivers who died on road crashes

between 2004 and 2009 had alcohol and/or drugs in their system. Ashburton Community Alcohol and Drug Service manager Chris Clark had noticed “a spike every now and again” in drink-related incidents. She said it was vital, particularly in rural areas, that drivers planned how they were getting home before drinking and making a decision. “People need to plan ahead with how they are going to get home. Rural areas don’t have access to public transport, some pubs have courtesy vans or it may be a case of actually having a sober driver

or organising someone to pick you up,” she said. Statistics New Zealand figures show in 2011 the Ashburton District Court experienced a seven year spike in drink-driving cases, but last year the district recorded at least 50 fewer cases than 2010/11 and almost 70 cases fewer than the 2009/10. Mr Stewart said too many accidents resulted from alcohol and drugs, but hoped to see progress with Operation Rural within the next two months. He is expecting to reduce drink driving figures within the next three months.

POLL RESULT Yesterday’s result Q: Have you found it difficult to maintain your stocks of firewood this winter?

By Sue Newman Solving the rush-hour traffic log jam at the Walnut Avenue intersection with West Street is likely to cost taxpayers more than $2.5 million. Consultation on proposed changes at the intersection will start on Monday, with the community asked for comments on the removal of the existing intersection and the installation of traffic lights. The New Zealand Transport agency has had improvements at this roundabout on its radar for several years and it is keen to begin installation in 2015. In tandem it is also proposing matching lights at the East Street intersection too. The project was first proposed in 2006 but was shelved. Rapidly increasing traffic volumes along both the state highway and Walnut Avenue meant the project was now back on the radar said NZTA highway manager Christchurch, Colin Knags. “The scope of the project is largely unchanged and it is important the community is able to comment on the detailed proposal before the design is finalised and lodged for consenting.” The project was presented to the Ashburton District Council yesterday along with four options that will see access points into the Ashburton Domain changed. While NZTA will fund the West Street work, likely to cost about $2.5 million, if lights are installed at East Street the council will have to carry $440,000 of the $1 million this project is likely to cost because this is a local road. Work at either of both intersections is at least two years away and NZTA would have to acquire some land around both intersections. Four options have been given for new entrances into the domain, one involving a road off Walnut Avenue and three involving relocating the West Street access further south. Councillor John Leadley said that getting to the point of community consultation was significant progress. “We have to seize this opportunity as it comes along. There’s a long way to go before we get something but it’s an opportunity we’ve fought for, for years.” The council has budgeted $60,000 this year for land designation required for East Street improvements. Public consultation will run from July 22 to August 9 and will involve at least one open day where people can view plans and make comments. Mayor Angus McKay said the project was a partnership between the council and NZTA and that community feedback was important to ensure the best outcome for the district was achieved.

House to go under auctioneer’s hammer By Sue Newman When the auctioneer’s hammer falls on the sale of a house in Braebrook tomorrow, the Ashburton community will share in the profits of that sale. The house has been built by Jennian Homes with more than a little help from dozens of trades people and suppliers from around the Ashburton District. They have given their labour and materials, often at cost, to ensure the Braebrook house turns a healthy profit, all for a community cause. Profits from the house sale will form part of the community’s $5 million fundraising campaign for the EA Networks Centre. As part of the Ashburton District Council’s commitment to build the $32 million plus facility, the Ashburton Stadium trust was charged with raising $5 million from its future users. Sales agent Hamish Niles said interest in the house had been high, with a big turnout of possible buyers to each open home. “The proof will come on the day. We’re confident of a really good result and we’re saying to people, if you’ve got more than $400,000 to spend – be there.” The Braebrook house will be open prior to the auction, at 10.30am if anyone needed convincing that the house was for them, Mr Niles said. ‘This is an amazing community project, one that has seen so many people involved.” For Stadium Trust fundraising chairman Chris Robertson, proceeds from the auction will be the

With more than $4.9 million already raised it’s satisfying to know that the final dollars, and more, are likely to be in the bank on Saturday, he said. “This has been a seamless project from our point of view. Jennian and the subbies have taken charge of it and just got on with it. What better fund raising model could you have than that?”

When the auction funds are tallied up, Mr Robertson said fundraising won’t end. It might be down-tuned, but there were a number of options still to be looked at that could boost the tally and ultimately that could add more facilities to the complex, he said. The Ashburton District Council last week accepted a tender from Naylor Love for $25.1 million to

Parking revenue well down Staff shortage gave tardy Ashburton motorists a little breathing space at the parking meter in May and June. With one parking officer resigning in May, bringing a new officer up to speed meant fewer tickets were issued by Ashburton District Council parking officers over the past two months. Revenue from parking infringements in May was $40,400

with $11,389 lodged in parking meters. In June $38,503 was paid in parking infringements and $8,375 was lodged in parking meters. Running short of staff cost the council more than $3000 in parking infringement income during May and June.




Ashburton cemeteries were busy places in May with a spike in the number of burials and cremations. There were 14 interments and one ash burial during the month, compared to six interments and five ash burials in May 2012. Numbers returned to normal in June with six burials and two ash burials.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, July 19, 2013


Legal high ban now in force By Myles Hume Dairies and novelty shops in Mid Canterbury are likely to be the target of random police checks to prevent the illegal sale synthetic cannabis. The Psychoactive Substances Bill 2013 came into effect yesterday, banning the sale of unapproved legal highs in dairies and grocery stores. The new law means tighter restrictions on the sale and advertising with only specialist R18 stores or tobacconists allowed to sell unapproved legal highs while testing is done to see which substances are safe to sell in New Zealand. Senior Sergeant Grant Russell, of Ashburton, warned if local businesses did not comply with the law they would be dealt with. “We aren’t visiting them right now, but it may be something we will look into down the track, there’s nothing stopping our guys from doing that,” he said. The Bel Air Dairy and Coinsave, on East Street, were known as the two main sellers of legal highs to the Ashburton community.

Principals’ pay top-ups frowned on By Myles Hume Principals claiming as much as $29,000 on top of their salary for “extra work” do not sit well with the principal of the Mid Canterbury’s biggest school. Additional money can be paid to principals for extra tasks and responsibilities that go over and beyond their role. Principals can apply to their Board of Trustees to be reimbursed for the hours, who then ask for approval by the Ministry of Education. This year the $1.35 million was allowed in salary top

ups. “I’m stunned people are still trying to do that, I can see why a Board of Trustees may want to hold their principal or for other reasons, but I can assure you there’s nothing like that within the college,” Ashburton College principal Grant McMillan said. Sporting commitments and school projects were part of the extra work, with the average top -up being about $13,000 for the 101 principals who were approved the money this year. Mr McMillan often works long hours and has spoken to the Guardian while working from home before, so why didn’t he seek

payment for that? “From ethics, through to I chose this job, I accepted it on the conditions it comes with. I earn more than the average weekly wage and the taxpayer reimburses me for the work that I do and sometimes the job does involve some after-hours stuff.” Mr McMillan said the idea to insert hours worked clauses into teacher contracts was explored in the past but it was scrapped after complications such as the hours spent on school trips and keeping track of the hours worked at home cropped up. “Basically the agreement says it

is recognised the hours of a teaching week vary a lot, therefore it’s a package deal; work like hell but the student term breaks provide an opportunity to have a break so it kind of balances itself out,” Mr McMillan said. He questioned why some principals were reimbursed for their hours on particular projects, which were likely to have involved other staff. “I would hope there would be something additional for staff there too, there’s no way you could organise something like an international rugby programme alone,” he said.

However, both said they had already taken the products off their shelves. Mr Russell said if there were shops considering to legally sell synthetic cannabis in Mid Canterbury, they had to realise the harm it caused. “The shops have to realise they have a responsibility to the community at large. If they are looking to sell these they need to take a hard look at themselves,” he said. Mr Russell said legal highs had contributed to crime in the district, much like other parts of the country. That’s why Tinwald’s First and Last Dairy owner May Sun said her business stopped selling legal highs at the beginning of this year. She saw the effects it was having on some of her regular customers at the time. “We saw some problems with those people at the grassroots and younger people who don’t have a very decent job and don’t have an organised life,” Mrs Sun said last week. If found illegally selling legal highs, individuals can be fined up to $10,000 while businesses could face fines up to $50,000.

and will remain unchanged. A total of 509 customers completed the questionnaire, providing information on the times they traditionally used the library and any preferences they had if a change in hours was made. The earlier opening time during the week would erode staff time currently used for computer system updates, shelf tidying and after hours book returns, district librarian Jill Watson said but it would only marginally increase wage costs. To test the waters on the 9am week day opening time, the Ashburton District Council has opted for a six month trial.

More than 170 rural families in the Ashburton District still rely on stockwater races for domestic use. They are among the 2000 plus stockwater customers surveyed by the Ashburton District Council in April as part of its project to pipe stockwater and close parts of its water race network.

mitment to close water races that are no longer required, it wanted to understand current use of the network, the alternative sources of water users might have and future opportunities for them to access alternative sources of water. More than 2000 survey forms were sent out with 75 per cent of customers responding. Of those 58 per cent said their stockwater supply was essential

Families still reliant on stockwater races for domestic use By Sue Newman


• Watters Cup Rugby The last round of the local competition has Celtic hosting Southern and Hampstead heads up the road to Methven. Both games kick off at 2.45pm.

Library to open one hour earlier Public demand will see the Ashburton library open for business one hour earlier each week day. To ensure it was meeting customer needs, library staff carried out a survey on opening and closing times. And it seems library users are generally a happy lot. Since the early 1960s the library has opened at 10am each day and closed at 8pm. While most respondents were happy with the status quo, 42 per cent said they would like to see the library open earlier during the week. The weekend hours of 10am to 1pm Saturday and 1pm to 4pm Sunday met most users’ needs


for their farming operation most often as stock drinking water, but 19 per cent relied on the network for domestic supplies too. At yesterday’s operations committee meeting, mayor Angus McKay said that understanding the depth of reliance on the network was important for the council as endeavoured to make a better use of water in the district. “The savings from piping are enormous and the beneficiary will

be the Ashburton River and people who don’t have clean water at the moment; they’re still washing their clothes in water race water.” A clean supply of water in rural areas was also important for the growing number of vegetable processors in the district, he said. “We have to move as fast as we can to give our people clean water and to gain the efficiencies that piped water brings. “There is something in this

for the whole district, no matter where you live.” The district’s stockwater system belonged in the past, said councillor Darryl Nelson. “They were great in their day but now they’re antiquated.” The survey results will form part of further investigation into the water piping scheme and the council will work with irrigation scheme developers to explore opportunities and also the way in

which costs could be shared. “We will now undertake a more detailed investigation of who needs what, and where and we’ll then be able to decide which parts of the network can be rationalised,” operations manager Rob Rouse said. “The council is seeking to achieve the return of unrequired water to the environment against the need to enhance and make water available for irrigation.”

Dog control officers were kept on their toes over the past two months nabbing stray, wandering or barking dogs. In May 22 dogs were impounded by officers with another 28 picked up in June. Three dogs were impounded over the two month period but no dogs were euthanized. Fifteen infringement notices were served in May and June bringing total infringements for the year to June 30 to 86. Dog control officers also issued 15 notices to dog owners because of barking complaints received in June. Four dog attacks were dealt with in June, two on people and two on sheep. As a result of one dog attack on a person the offending dog was destroyed. The other incident is still under investigation. The owners of the dogs that attacked sheep have been fined and in one case the dog involved has been given a menacing classification. Horses and cows were also on the run during June with horses found and returned to paddocks on Maronan and Fairfield roads and 10 cows reported wandering on Seafield Road.

Doorway defecation hits unwelcome new low T

he readers of the Ashburton Guardian would have been scratching their head this morning reading the story about some idiot who defecated on the pavement on Tancred Street. No doubt drugs or alcohol, or both, would have played a role in this moment of insanity in a very public place, but it is hard to fathom how even the ugliest drunk or dope head would drop his or her pants. We all would have had moments that we would have

OUR VIEW paid our life savings to get to a toilet, but this disgusting act puts this particular person in a category alongside badly trained animals. Even most house pets are better trained than this fool who gave the hard-working retail staff on Tancred Street a terrible surprise when they came to work. This latest incident is just another low-point in an ever-

growing list of public nuisance and vandalism the good people of Ashburton have to put up with on a daily basis. Sadly, we are starting to expect and almost have become accustomed to see tippedover rubbish and cigarette bins, empty bottles and cans, smashed glass on streets and parks, bashed mail boxes and in some places even used condoms.

And after all, until the culprit of yesterday’s “deposit” has been caught, it is not even sure whether he or she came out of a nearby pub. Most normal people would never consider sinking that low, whatever their state of intoxication, and especially with public toilets only a hundred metres away. So you have to question the

As the council is unlikely to carry the cost for increased security to keep a handful of buffoons under control, they may need to consider increased CCTV coverage. The alternative is putting up with the status quo, cleaning up the mess and hope it will not happen again soon.

kind of people who leave their excrement to be cleaned up by others, showing a total lack of respect for others, and probably themselves as well.

Sports stadium A review of the paper war I have and including replies requested under the Official Information Act provisions, the approval and letting of contracts for this new play centre under what used to be normal administrative procedures would never have been permitted to proceed. So many of the existing rules have been either broken or ignored. The $5 million public subscription was manipulated by way of

paper promises and in fact even then was not achieved. When I enquired none of the funds had been paid over and today all the money spent and that is in excess of $5 million is from District Funds, which rather gives lie to the mayor’s concern for funds for roading and we all see where that money should have been spent. It is obvious that no lessons were taken from the debacle at ECan resulting from blatant rule/ law breaking and nor is a warning absorbed from the Christchurch

City Council with its divided council to the extent some even ignored. We have that here and it has been obvious for some time. Not only do non-elected, selected friends have more say than the elected representatives but large sums of money are being spent and at no stage were the general populace invited to participate, let alone have an input. It made it very difficult that your newspaper by strongly aligning itself to this cause placed its own integrity under suspicion. The photo you published was

rather glossed over instead of sounding a strident warning as to the stability and suitability of the site itself. It is a recent riverbed and remains a flood channel and all that I have been able to see convinces me that inadequate subsurface investigations have been carried out. Perhaps holes in the walls for drainage would suffice. Those concerned see another monument, regrettably I see a financial disaster. M. N. Richards

3000 nabbed for welfare fraud By Isaac Davison More than 3000 cases of welfare fraud have been uncovered in the past six months through increased information sharing between Inland Revenue and the Ministry of Social Development. Associate Social Development Minister Chester Borrows said the fraud from these cases would

have cost New Zealanders $33.7 million per year. “While it is always disappointing to see some people are willing to break the law and take money they’re not entitled to, it happens, and we have a responsibility to the taxpayer to stop it,” he said. Of the benefit cancellations, 1948 cases related to unemployment benefits and 559 to the

Ban imposed on blast equipment A South Auckland scrap metal plant has been prohibited from using any equipment linked to an explosion there on Wednesday night. Six workers were in the National Steel scrap metal plant in Wiri when the explosion sparked a fire shortly after 7pm. The Fire Service believes it occurred when an LPG bottle which was inside a car being processed blew up. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s Safety Group has issued a prohibition notice against National Steel, banning the use of machinery linked to the explosion. The ministry said the notice would remain in place until it was satisfied that the machinery and the company’s processes were safe. Fire Service Auckland acting commander Roger Callister told Radio New Zealand today the workers were lucky to escape without injury. “The occupants of the premises

are extremely lucky given the force the of the explosion that they weren’t in an area that they [could have been] seriously injured or even worse.” According to its website, National Steel processes various metals, including aluminium, copper, steel and stainless steel in various forms such as car bodies, whiteware, building materials, cans, and cables. Owner Roshan Nauhria said staff had told him there was minimal damage to the building. Although the Fire Service believed an LPG bottle was to blame, Mr Nauhria said it was possible there was still some petrol in a vehicle going through the shedder. “We check every car and sometimes you miss a petrol tank or something,” he said. “When we started we used to have a blast, more or less one every week - now we probably have a blast, one every two months, three months. “We take a lot of precautions.” - apnz

sickness benefit. In total, 3139 illegitimate benefits were found. The Government introduced increased information sharing between the two agencies six months ago, which helped detect beneficiaries whose taxable income did not match up with what they had declared to ministry staff. Their cases were reviewed, and if they were earning more than

they should have been while on a benefit, their entitlement was cancelled. The ministry was now working to recover the overpayments, which included making special orders to take a cut of some offenders’ wages. Those that deliberately misled agencies could be prosecuted, Mr Borrows said. - APNZ

Zone process queried By Cullen Smith Lawyers acting for a group of angry red zone property owners and a disgruntled Brooklands property developer will take on the Government in the High Court at Christchurch on Monday. Quake Outcasts, a group of more than 40 owners of vacant land and uninsured properties in the city’s residential red zones, is challenging the Crown’s zoning process and offer of 50 per cent of the value of their land. They want the same compensation offer other red zone property owners received - the 2007 rateable value of the properties. Property developer John Fowler, whose Fowler Developments Ltd company owns 11 sections in the Brooklands red zone, is seeking to recover a further $1 million on top of the 50 per cent payout the company has received. Both Quake Outcasts and Fowler Developments are seeking a judicial review of the Government’s decision under the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act to acquire their land them payments based on their properties’ 2007 RVs. Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Authority chief executive Roger Sutton is named as the respondent in the application for a judicial review that will be heard before Justice Graham Pankhurst. Quake Outcasts spokesman Ernest Tsao said the group was challenging “both the zoning process and the offer process”. “We’re saying that everybody should be treated the same,” he said. “It should be no different to the compulsory acquisition of properties under the Public Works Act. “Our lawyers will show that the Government has acted in bad faith from the beginning and that people have been treated unfairly from the outset,” Mr Tsao said. Fowler Developments’ lawyer Stephen Rennie said proceedings were started on behalf of his client at the start of the year but when Quake Outcasts filed a case the court decided they should be heard together. “Our argument is that the Crown has a duty to treat like with like. There should be no distinguishing feature between the owners of vacant sections and owners of sections with dwelling on them,” Mr Rennie said. -APNZ

The Bishop of Auckland has rejected claims that instructions from ‘on high’ have caused a late halt to a proposed gay wedding taking place at St Matthew-in-theCity parish. The church’s vicar, Reverend Glynn Cardy, said the reason he was unable to host the ceremony as the culmination of a radio competition was because Anglican officials will not solemnise gay weddings. ZM, the broadcaster behind the promotion, blamed “higher powers in the Church”. But a statement from the Anglican Diocese of Auckland said Reverend Cardy had told the Bishop of Auckland, the Right Reverend Ross Bay, that there was no intention for the church to offer such an event, although a blessing would be possible following a legal civil marriage elsewhere. The bishop says no directive was given to St Matthew’s because there was never an intention for such a wedding to take place because the vicar was working within Anglican Church policy, which he understood. Reverend Cardy wrote to ZM late yesterday telling them it was not possible to hold the finale of their Fabulous Gay Wedding competition at his Hobson St church. The radio station is planning to arrange a church wedding for the winner of its competition on August 19 - the day legislation allowing same sex marriage comes into force. Yesterday Reverend Cardy told APNZ it was the policy of the Anglican Church that the legally binding civil ceremony part of a wedding “can’t be taken by an Anglican priest at this point in time”. “The doctrines of the Anglican Church unfortunately justify marriage as between a man and a woman and until we change that doctrine, which will take quite a bit of changing, that’s the status quo.” Gay couples were still welcome to have a religious ceremony in an Anglican church, but had to have the civil ceremony elsewhere first,

Rev Cardy said. “That’s different than for a heterosexual couple and all I can say is I’m sorry about that. “I’m not sure what ZM are going to do but I, as an Anglican priest, can’t take that civil ceremony.” Station content director Christian Boston said St Matthew’s had been “incredibly supportive” of the competition but it appeared “higher powers in the church have been looking at the Anglican Church policy and have concluded that they can’t marry a gay couple”. The Anglican Church statement said the organisation defines marriage as between a man and a woman. “Within the Church, discussions are taking place about the nature of marriage and the Church’s response to those who are seeking same-gender marriage. The Anglican Church seeks to be a welcoming place to all people, including the gay community, and is committed to how that can be so in practice while retaining respect for the diverse beliefs of many people in the church over this issue. “The Anglican Church’s governance structures in New Zealand are independent of the Church of England. It is not possible for the Church of England to issue orders or instructions to the New Zealand Church. Such a suggestion by ZM is incorrect and a result of a misunderstanding of church governance structures.” ZM breakfast host Polly Gillespie moved to assure competition finalists the winner would still get a church wedding. “We are left with no alternative but to move the ceremony elsewhere, so we’re on the hunt for another church. “I feel for vicar Glynn and St Matthew’s in the City, as they have been hugely supportive, I love their courage and approach to life as we know it in 2013.” Reverend Cardy announced earlier this month he would be leaving St Matthew’s to lead a Presbyterian church in Remuera. The Anglican Church’s stance on gay marriage had nothing to do with his decision, he said. He was unsure whether the Presbyterian Church would allow gay marriages. - apnz

Hazard notices placed on Chch houses By Shelley Robinson Earthquake-damaged houses in Christchurch at risk of severe flooding are having hazard notices placed on their land. Five properties have hazard notices placed on their titles which alert potential buyers that the land is at risk of severe flooding. The hazard notices are put on properties by the city council under Section 72 of the Building Act. Properties affected include the site of the transitional St Albans Community Centre on Colombo St and three properties in Southshore. One property in Cashmere also has a hazard notice due to a nearby creek. City council building operations manager Ethan Stetson said the notice was triggered when a consent was needed for repair or rebuild. He said due to the earthquakes the land around the city had changed, causing some properties to sink and increasing flood risk. “The earthquakes changed the profile of land around the estuary, rivers and creeks. Their profile has changed and has become susceptible in relation to sea level,” he said. “Imagine, if you will, five years from now and someone is thinking of buying in that area. The city council is calling to your attention as a purchaser that the site is at risk. “Putting it on the title is the appropriate method for sharing what the council knows,” he said. But homeowners disagree and have called for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority to

buy their properties so they can get out. They say having a hazard notice on their title will affect resale. South New Brighton resident Anne Denton said she was worried that when she got her quake repairs done she would get a hazard notice put on her property and its resale value would be affected. The Earthquake Commission recently contacted her, telling her repairs to her home were now on hold because they said she was in a “flood zone”. She feared when she does get repairs done and they require a consent, a notice could be placed on her property. “I can’t even imagine the value that will be lost because of having a hazard notice. Would you buy a house with that on it?” she said. “We have been told our area in South Brighton is at high risk of severe flooding and all the houses around here need to be lifted 1.2 metres,” she said. She said the Government should give residents “a chance” and declare the area red zoned. “How can you do that to people? Give us the option to get out first,” she said. A CERA spokesperson said Section 72 notices were applied across the country in a variety of circumstances where a hazard existeds. In Christchurch, the flood risk also existed before the earthquakes. “Where there is a rebuild, affected green zone property owners have the opportunity to consider mitigation options such as a raised building platform. -APNZ

Moral victory only By Rebecca Quilliam The journalist who brought a defamation case against the head of the Defence Force is disappointed the jury could not reach a verdict but says he won a moral victory in the courtroom. Jon Stephenson brought a civil case against Lieutenant General Rhys Jones for defamation over a Defence Force statement about articles he wrote during 2010 and 2011. Stephenson was seeking $500,000 and costs. One of Stephenson’s articles, which featured in Metro Magazine in 2011, described how SAS soldiers transferred Afghan detainees to authorities who tortured them. A statement issued by General Jones denied Stephenson had performed an interview with the commander of a crisis response unit in Afghanistan. It also stated that he had never entered the base where the meeting took place. Three articles written by Stephenson had been based on this interview. Since hearing evidence from Stephenson, General Jones’ lawyer Hugh Rennie QC said the general had accepted the journalist entered the base and conducted the interview. After deliberating for about nine

Jon Stephenson hours, the jury returned to the High Court at Wellington yesterday afternoon to tell Justice Alan MacKenzie they were unable to reach a verdict. The jury had to first decide if General Jones had defamed Stephenson, and then if they found that to be the case, had to make a finding on damages to be awarded to Stephenson. For a majority decision to be reached, nine or more of the 12 members must agree. The foreperson told Justice McKenzie they were all “strongminded, opinionated” people and he did not believe, even given more

time, they would be able to reach a verdict. The judge then discharged the jury. Outside court, Stephenson said there was no decision yet on whether to seek a retrial and he would take advice from his counsel on his other options. He would not be drawn on what those options were. He was disappointed with the outcome but said he was “delighted” with the acknowledgement by General Jones that the Defence Force accepted he had entered the base for an interview with its commander. “The main reason we came here, the fact that I did go to the base and I did interview the commander, like I reported, has been conceded by the Defence Force. “That’s what I was fighting for.” He said it had cost a “considerable” amount of money to bring the case to court but he would not say whether others had sponsored him. Stephenson did not rule out negotiating a settlement with the Defence Force to avoid a future retrial. He said if the Defence Force had taken down its statement from its website when he asked them to a couple of years ago, “we would not be here now”. - APNZ

Welcome to the UK, please give us your phone By Alanah Eriksen Thousands of Kiwis travelling to Great Britain face having their phones seized and personal data downloaded and stored by police. The issue has been highlighted by David Anderson, a British reviewer of terrorism laws, who is calling for checks to ensure they are not being abused. A privacy group in this country says the process could intimidate people entering the country and fears any searches of Kiwis may restrict the ability of people trying to open bank accounts or do business abroad.

Under UK counter-terrorism laws, officers do not need to show reasonable suspicion for seizing electronic devices and can retain information for “as long as is necessary”, the Daily Telegraph reports. Police or border staff can question and hold someone while they check whether they pose a terrorism risk. Data downloaded can include call history, contact books, photos and who the person is texting or emailing - even if the individual is then immediately allowed to proceed. Up to 60,000 people a year are stopped and examined as they enter the UK - nearly 100,000

Kiwis travelled there in the past year alone - but it is not known how many of them had their phone data taken. Council for Civil Liberties spokesman Batch Hales said any information gained by British police on Kiwis would “certainly be relayed back to New Zealand and to the other countries”. “It might restrict the ability of people to open accounts or do business in Britain, if their files had the information that they had been searched by police. The information gathered could not be challenged in any way, because the traveller would not know what had been collected.”

Police are examining a Hamilton property after the discovery of an elderly man’s body. Waikato District Field Crime manager Detective Inspector Karl Thornton said the 79-year-old’s body was removed from his Matai St home yesterday afternoon and a post-mortem examination was being done in Auckland. An investigation was launched after the man was found dead in his bed on Wednesday with what appeared to be a head injury. -APNZ

The process might lead to travellers deleting information from their phones, which could lead to authorities suspecting they were hiding something. It could intimidate people entering the country, as did anti-terrorism measures at US airports after the 9/11 attacks, Mr Hales said. Some people had started avoiding travelling through the US to get to the UK and he suspected people might start trying to avoid UK airports. “It’s the complete negativity by people shown in Customs ... the whole attitude. You have to wait in long queues, you’ve got grumpy

suspicious officers who will not engage with you in any way.” The UK’s Iris recognition system, which checks scans of passengers’ irises against copies held on the agency’s database, had already rattled travellers. It has since been phased out after glitches in the system. Kensington Swan privacy lawyer Tim Cochrane said New Zealand police or Customs did not have the same sorts of sweeping powers to seize phones from anyone entering the country. “They need to have reasonable cause to believe that someone’s actually committed an offence or are going to ... Customs officials

could in certain circumstances have good grounds to believe, based on someone’s criminal history.” A police spokesman said cellphones and cellphone data could be seized under the Search and Surveillance Act, but a warrant had to be obtained. A Customs spokesman said the agency could examine phones and seize them if they contained evidence of an offence or contained prohibited items. A Foreign Affairs spokesman said it was not aware of any complaints being received from New Zealanders about the UK process. - APNZ

‘I’m sorry I stuffed up Origin match’ Police ruling on cyclist’s A Kiwi man who streaked across the field during Wednesday night’s State of Origin final says he is sorry he “stuffed up” the match, which was briefly brought to a halt by his naked antics. Wati Holmwood, 33, originally from Nelson, stripped down to nothing but his sports shoes before entering the field and making a 100m dash across almost the full length of Sydney’s ANZ Stadium, just two minutes before full-time. His antics cost Queensland a try but the side still claimed victory against New South Wales. Holmwood, a repeat offender, is now facing a lifetime ban from the stadium as well as charges of wilful and obscene exposure, and entering or remaining on the playing field without authorisation. In 2011, he was banned from Sydney Football Stadium after jumping the fence during a league game between the Warriors and Wests Tigers. He was charged and then admitted to Auburn Hospital following last night’s incident, which ended with him tripping just short of the tryline. Australian newspaper The

Telegraph reported Holmwood looked “dazed and confused” when he discharged himself from hospital shortly after being sedated early this morning. Hospital staff and security guards reportedly pleaded with him to not leave, but he discharged himself about 1.20am before walking about 10km as he headed home. No longer naked in shorts and a white singlet, he told The Telegraph: “I’m sorry, I apologise about what happened, am I in trouble now?” He said the events of last night “all happened so quickly”. “I don’t know what was going through my head. I just wanted to make it interesting but I stuffed up Origin. A lot of people hate me now.” Holmwood was asked whether he remembered what had happened, to which he replied: “Queensland scored a try when I was on didn’t they? I want to see myself on television.” He was left without a cent after his antics, and reportedly asked a journalist outside the hospital for money to catch a train home. - apnz

death stuns her family By Andrew Koubaridis

Wati Holmwood in full flight during the State of Origin match.

The family of a woman killed in a cycling accident are stunned no one will be charged over her death. Jane Farrelly, a mother of two, died while on a group ride with her husband, Ian, and friends near Taupo in March. After she died, her family pleaded with motorists to better share the road with cyclists. On Wednesday, police confirmed that they would not be prosecuting the driver of the truck-and-trailer unit that was in collision with Mrs Farrelly. Bay of Plenty road policing manager Inspector Kevin Taylor said only the facts of the case were taken into consideration and not the heightened public concern over the safety of cyclists. “I am aware there is significant commentary around sharing of the roads and cyclists and other motorists. In relation to deci-

sions made on this crash, only the information taken from this police investigation was considered in assessing any driver culpability,” he said. The accident happened in view of Mr Farrelly. He and his wife were in a group of cyclists riding up a hill on 100km/h Poihipi Rd, north of Taupo, when the truckand-trailer unit, carrying farm implements, came from behind. Mr Farrelly watched his wife get up out of her seat, which was normal going up a hill, and then look back as if she had sensed something behind her. She wobbled slightly and collided with the truck. On Wednesday night, Barbara Cuthbert, of Cycle Action Auckland, said she had spoken with Mrs Farrelly’s sister Tina McCullough, who told her the family were in shock over the police decision not to lay charges. “Clearly I’d say they’re stunned and horrified by this news.” Mrs Cuthbert was unable to say

what message the police decision sent to road users until she had more information. At Mrs Farrelly’s funeral, Ms McCullough asked drivers to think carefully when they saw cyclists on the roads. “We’re mums, we’re dads, we’re daughters, we’re sons. Share the word, share the road,” she told mourners. Also at the funeral, Mr Farrelly spoke of the “void that may never be filled” now his wife of 26 years was gone. He said the accident was “brutal” and it was a tragedy that should never have happened. The female riders of the group, who cycle with the Manukau City Veterans Cycle Club, were supposed to be competing in a ride around Kinloch which was postponed, but they decided to travel to Taupo anyway. On average, about 10 cyclists are killed each year in New Zealand in crashes with motor vehicles on public roads. - APNZ

Down’s syndrome breakthrough Taliban boss regrets Malala attack Gene scientists say that in labdish cells, they have found a way to switch off the rogue chromosome that causes Down’s syndrome. The breakthrough opens up the tantalising goal of therapy for Down’s, they said, cautioning that years of work lie ahead before this aim is reached – if, in fact, it is attainable. Down’s syndrome is the world’s leading genetically caused men-

A prominent Pakistani Taliban commander has written a letter to a teenage girl shot in the head by the group, expressing regrets that he didn’t warn her before the assassination attempt that propelled her activism to the international stage. The letter from Adnan Rasheed, however, didn’t apologise for the October attack that left Malala Yousafzai gravely wounded. Rasheed, who has close relations with Taliban leaders, only said that he found the shooting “shocking” and wished it hadn’t happened. Rasheed said he would leave it up to God to decide whether the outspoken activist for girls’ education should have been targeted. “You have said in your speech yesterday that pen is mightier than sword,” Rasheed wrote in reference to Malala’s speech at the United Nations, “so they attacked you for your sword not for your books or school”. Rasheed said the letter received by The Associated Press on Wednesday expressed his own opinion, not that of the militant group. The AP spoke to another Taliban commander yesterday who confirmed the letter, written in English, was authentic. Malala was 15 years old when she and two of her friends were attacked on their way home from school in Pakistan’s north-west Swat Valley. The assassination attempt sparked worldwide condemnation. Malala celebrated her 16th birthday last week by giving a

tal disease, accounting for around one in 600 live births in the United States. It also carries with it a heightened risk of heart defects, leukaemia, immune-system malfunction and premature Alzheimer’s disease. The disease, formally called trisomy 21, is caused by an additional chromosome 21, which has a cascade of unexplained impacts on brain development

Malala Yousafzai speech at the UN in New York, telling the body that the attack gave her new courage while demanding world leaders provide free education to all children. Rasheed said the Taliban did not attack Malala because she was a proponent for girls’ education, but because she was critical of the militant group when it took over much of Swat in 2008 and 2009. That mirrors what some militants said at the time of the shooting. Rasheed, who the Taliban broke out of prison last year, said the militants supported both boys and girls going to school as long as they received an Islamic education and didn’t study what he called a “satanic or secular curriculum”. Malala wrote in a blog for the BBC at the time the Taliban controlled Swat about how many students moved out of the valley after the Taliban issued an edict banning girls from school.  – AP

US magazine Rolling Stone is under fire for placing Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its cover, which critics said treats the Boston bombing suspect almost like a pop celebrity. This week’s cover of the publication known for its interviews with rock stars shows a goateed Tsarnaev, 19, with a melancholic expression, his tousled brown curls falling gently into his eyes. The image, which sparked outrage in some quarters, was likened to a famous portrait of the late singer Jim Morrison of the rock group The Doors, who died in 1971. The accompanying Rolling Stones article, titled The Bomber, was described by the magazine in a statement as a “deeply reported account of the life and times” of Tsarnaev. The article is based on interviews with dozens of sources that “deliver a riveting and heartbreaking account of how a charming kid with a bright future became a monster,” it said. Versions of the Tsarnaev photo previously have been reproduced by others, but Rolling Stone’s use of the image has irked many in a country still shocked by the car-

Tsarnaev faces a 30-count indictment – including 17 counts punishable by death – for his role in the April 15 twin blasts at the city’s marathon that killed three people and wounded more than 260. Rolling Stone’s Facebook page was filled with comments yesterday, including one from a poster named Shawn Anthony, who said it was wrong to make a celebrity out of Tsarnaev. “Why give the guy the cover of Rolling Stone?” he posted. “Don’t make martyrs out of these people.” “Oh look, Rolling Stone magazine is glamorising terrorism.

Heartland New Zealand is warning shareholders they may be targeted by yet another ‘low-ball’ offer. In a notice to the NZX yesterday morning, the bank said it had received notice that Australia’s Washington Securities intends to make unsolicited offers to buy shares from certain HNZ shareholders for 55c per share tomorrow. This is 32c less than HNZ’s share price at the close of the market on Wednesday. Adelaide-based Washington Securities is directed and owned by John Armour and has been behind a string of low-ball offers to New Zealand shareholders, including one to Dorchester Pacific investors on Wednesday. Before Washington Securites, John Armour was a director of a company called Stock & Share which also lobbed low-ball offers at Kiwi investors. Companies like this target ‘mum and dad’ shareholders, because they are not likely to keep track of how much the shares are trading for and may be looking for quick, easy cash. While low-ball offers aren’t illegal, new laws came into effect last year hoping to contain the practice. The regulations changed how unsolicited offers to investors could be made and included stricter disclosure requirements and imposed minimum offer and cancellation periods. – APNZ

“Given that job ads lead changes in the unemployment rate, and the trend is fairly flat, the data suggest a risk of a near-term recoil in the unemployment rate from its sharp quarter one fall,” said ANZ senior economist Sharon Zollner. New Zealand’s unemployment rate fell to 6.2 per cent in the March quarter, its lowest rate in three years. That was a decrease from 6.8 per cent the previous quarter, which reflected 15,000

fewer people unemployed. Zollner said she expected the unemployment rate to rise towards 7 per cent in the short-term, before improving again in line with generally better economic conditions around the country. Although recent surveys showed business confidence had increased, that was not translating into hiring activity, she said. “Businesses are saying they intend to take on more staff but they’re not doing

that. They’re wary of false dawns.” ANZ’s job ad index was only 0.7 per cent last month higher than a year ago. Continuing a market trend, internet ads rose by 0.5 per cent in June and are now 3 per cent higher than a year ago. Newspaper ads lost more ground with a 2.5 per cent drop. Job ad numbers fell in Canterbury, despite a lift in newspaper advertising. Wellington saw an increase in online

and newspaper ads. In Auckland, newspaper ads dipped but internet advertising rose. “Wellington advertising is slowly recovering from a minor slump, whereas Canterbury is not quite managing to hang on to a much higher level of advertising,” Zollner said. Earlier this week, Auckland Council said the region was suffering 7.3 per cent unemployment, higher than 6.2 per cent national average.  – APNZ

House price surge not a bubble – bankers group By Pattrick Smellie Surging prices for Auckland and Christchurch real estate do not constitute a housing market bubble because bank lending volumes have been plummeting for the past two months, says the executive director of the New Zealand Bankers Association, Kirk Hope. Political debate has raged this week over the impact on first home buyers if the Reserve Bank of New Zealand imposes restrictions on high loan-tovalue ratio lending next month, as is widely tipped. Hope told BusinessDesk the conditions justifying a move to restricting high LVR lending requires two market conditions – rising prices and rising lending. However, RBNZ home lending figures released on the central bank’s website yesterday and labelled “experimental”, show the rate of home loan approvals turned negative for the first time since July 2011, after a prolonged period of deep downturn in approvals at the height the recession in 2010. Approvals had been growing at more than 23 per cent as recently as the 13 weeks to November 23. “At the moment, we don’t think that the numbers demonstrate that a move on LVRs is necessary,” Hope said. “A demonstration of a bubble would be very rapid credit expansion.” The series compares growth in the number and value of home loan approvals over the previous 13 weeks, compared to the same 13 weeks a year earlier. That approach picks up seasonal effects, such as the normal fall in sales between summer and winter months. The changes showing up in recent weeks were far out of line with a normal seasonal slowdown, said Hope.

Political debate has raged over the impact on first home buyers if restrictions are imposed on high loan-to-value ratio lending next month, as is widely tipped.

In the 13 weeks to July 12, total home loan approvals fell 2.1 per cent compared to the same period in 2012, whereas approval rates were showing growth of 23 per cent-plus for the 13 weeks to November 23. The value of approvals at $1.143 billion in the 13 weeks to July 12 was consistent with

the last few weeks’ tallies, but the year on year rate of value approval growth suddenly slowed to 3.2 per cent, compared to 22.9 per cent at February 22. The figures suggested a large number of borrowers shopping around and refinancing existing mortgages amid competition among lenders as

borrowers move off floating rate loans to fixed rates in the expectation that interest rates have bottomed out. Hope warned that banks would also need enough time to communicate and retrain staff at branches all around the country if new lending regulations were imposed.  – APNZ

Gold medal grandure Amanda Wright

A Mid Canterbury gold medal build was honoured at the annual Master Builders House of the Year regional awards, held in Timaru, with Mid and South Canterbury regions being combined for the first time since the inception of the competition. The Lake Hood home owned by Tony and Jan Sands was constructed by local building firm Fowler Homes, whose vision was to create a spacious family home, while maximising both sunlight hours and a spectacular view over the lake. Fowler Homes directors Mike and Andrea Lee collaborated with Tony and Jan to produce the home they desired, from visiting the site to maximise plan design, right through the entire build process until the keys were handed over. Andrea was the site manager for the build and kept Tony and Jan’s dream at the forefront of decision making from start to finish. “Our vision was to create a home that functioned effortlessly for ease of day-to-day living, while capturing the beauty of the lake from as many positions within the home as possible. It was important that the home had a sense of flow between the indoors and outdoors, to bring some of that stunning scenery indoors. From the moment you enter the front door, you get a view that spans through the open-plan area, right out to the lake. “Jan had said to us at the beginning of the build that she wanted a home, not a display home but a place that her and Tony would feel relaxed within, a place where their grandchildren could visit and feel welcome in. The house has certainly become a home now. It’s very comfortable to visit, and with the magnificent views of the lake and lingering sun it’s a place that you’re not in a hurry to leave,” Andrea said.

Strong Conclusion to Selling Season



2 years


ata released in June by the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ) showed there was an encouraging conclusion to the Selling Season. For the Canterbury region there were 11 more farm sales and 90 more lifestyle property sales than for the same period three years ago in 2011.




Grazing blocks dominated the Canterbury statistics with a total of 31 properties changing hands in the three month period ending May 2013 suggesting the potential need for rationalization in the red meat sector has not dampened demand for quality sheep and beef properties.

Dairy sale volumes across the country have finished on a solid note with numbers being strongly ahead of where sales have been during the same time over the past two years.

Interestingly, in terms of median sale price per hectare Canterbury has also seen a jump across each of the sectors when compared with May 2011 – with the biggest increase coming from finishing land by a whopping $15,922 per hectare.

The Canterbury lifestyle market has also had a significant increase in median value

– from $445,500 in May 2011 to $540,000 in May 2013. Further evidence of the current strength in this market is evident with Canterbury recording the shortest number of days to sell at 45 days. So where does this lead into for the coming selling season? The forecast for generally better farm-gate prices across the main farming sectors in 2013-2014 should ensure stability in land prices. Add to this a strong forecast dairy payout and with most North Island pasture conditions having improved, confidence and the recovering morale of dairy farmers will continue to drive the sector that predominantly underpins our land market. This is further supported by ongoing off-shore interest from various countries that have a desire to be involved in New Zealand’s “food story” and continuing lower interest rates. However, the things to watch for will be the everchanging environmental regulation and the industry related changes that are touted. And in Canterbury – as has been the case for some time now – stability and/or strength in rural property market values will be subject to the continuing lack of supply of quality farms to meet current buyer demand.

was thought would happen didn’t eventuate at that particular moment. Properties that are more mainstream and popular in the marketplace, both in terms of style and price range have a more defined process and likely set of outcomes. Where there are a number of contenders over a broader market, statistically it is more likely for the probabilities to be realised. The opposite applies. It is my opinion is that the rapport with the client whether buyer or seller is paramount. Free and frank discussions achieve the best results to meet customer goals. Those expectations can change over the course of a marketing period so it is important for those for discussions to take place regularly and for both parties to listen to each other. The same applies when dealing with a real estate agent when you are buying. You need an agent that is sensitive to your specific concerns and then line up properties to view that are suitable for you rather than just “tiki tour” you around in the car. Sometimes those priorities and concerns change, both for buyers and vendors, and hence it is important to keep talking. I have seen people who would not buy a house in town with a strong preference for rural lifestyle blocks who have ultimately bought within the town boundaries. The opposite has occurred. I have seen buyers who would not buy a weatherboard home change their mind when that home meets 90% of their other requirements and priorities. The farm buyer who will only buy spray irrigated land but ultimately buys a property that has real appeal and a high rainfall in the foothills.

Yahoo makes Urine could charge mobile phones comeback By Rod Minchin

By Michael Liedtke Not much had been going right for Yahoo until it lured Marissa Mayer away from Google to become its CEO last summer. The move is shaping up as the best thing to happen to Yahoo since 2005 when it invested $1 billion in what was then a little-known internet company in China, Alibaba. Mayer’s magnetism and Alibaba’s prosperity are now combining to transform Yahoo Inc. from a tale of woe into a comeback story that is winning over Silicon Valley and Wall Street. People are spending more time on Yahoo’s flagship website. Talented engineers and entrepreneurs are coming to work for the company. Investors are adding its long-languishing stock to their portfolios again. The signs of renewed interest and hope mark a dramatic change from the feelings of hopelessness that had enveloped Yahoo under the direction of six CEOs in the six years leading up to Mayer’s appointment. Mayer, 38, had been a top executive who played a key role in Google’s evolution from start-up to powerhouse. Since her arrival, Mayer has orchestrated 17 acquisitions, including a $1.1 billion purchase of internet blogging service Tumblr, Yahoo’s biggest in a decade. Yahoo’s home page, email and Flickr photo service have all been redesigned, and a few mobile applications have been upgraded, helping to increase use of the company’s internet services. And Yahoo’s revenue is increasing, if ever so slightly, after three straight years of decline. Despite all that, Mayer can’t take much credit for Yahoo’s resurgent stock. Most of the 75 per cent increase in the shares has been driven by the rising value of the company’s stake in Alibaba Group, which owns a network of bustling e-commerce and digital payment services in China. “The performance of Yahoo’s stock under Marissa has virtually nothing to do with what everyone associates with Yahoo — the US operations,� Macquarie Capital analyst Ben Schachter said. “We really haven’t seen a significant change in the operations yet.� Mayer wasn’t involved in the initial investment in Alibaba. Shortly after Mayer came on board, however, Yahoo realised a $7.6 billion windfall by selling roughly half of its Alibaba stake back to the Chinese company. Investors have been pleased with what Mayer has done with the money. She has used most of the after-tax proceeds to buy back Yahoo’s stock, a tactic that has funnelled money back to them and boosted the company’s earnings per share by reducing the amount of outstanding stock. Yahoo ended April with 1.08 billion outstanding shares, a decrease of 102 million, or 9 per cent, from last July. Yahoo still owns a 24 per cent stake in Alibaba. Schachter estimates that

Marissa Mayer could bring in another $20 billion when Yahoo sells the rest of its holdings. Some of the money is expected to come in when Alibaba makes an eagerly anticipated initial public offering of stock, expected by early next year. The rest would come some time after the Chinese company goes public. That looming jackpot is the main reason that Yahoo’s stock has climbed so much during Mayer’s tenure. The run-up has occurred even though Yahoo has still been losing ground to Google and Facebook Inc. in the Internet ad market that generates most of their revenue. The trend is likely to surface once again in Tuesday’s earnings report. While Alibaba has boosted Yahoo’s stock in the short term, Mayer is trying to set the stage for a comeback in the long term. “As I’ve said before, companies with the best talent win, and it’s clear we’re now back in the game,� Mayer declared during Yahoo’s most recent earnings conference call in April. Mayer, who declined interview requests through a spokeswoman, describes her turnaround plan then as a “series of sprints� that will take several years to finish. She believes she completed the first phase by improving employee morale at Yahoo and ending the three-year downturn in Yahoo’s annual revenue. It was a modest achievement, given that Yahoo’s revenue increased by just 2 per cent last year, after its ad commissions. The growth lagged the 15 per cent increase in the overall US digital advertising market last year, according to the Interactive Advertising Bureau. Facebook’s revenue grew 37 per cent over the same period, while Google’s was up 21 per cent, excluding revenue from last year’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility. - AP

UK scientists are claiming a world first in developing a way to charge mobile phones using human urine. The Bristol-based boffins have been able to charge a Samsung phone by putting urine through a cascade of microbial fuel cells. They have generated enough electricity to send text messages, browse the internet and make a brief phone call. The scientists now plan to develop the technology to be able to fully charge the handheld device. The discovery has been made by a team of experts working at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, which is a collaboration between the University of the West of England and the University of Bristol. Dr Ioannis Ieropoulos, from the University of the West of England, is an expert at harnessing power from unusual sources using microbial fuel cells. “We are very excited as this is a world first, no-one has harnessed power from urine to do this so it’s an exciting discovery,� he said. “Using the ultimate waste product as a source of power to produce electricity is about as eco as it gets. “One product that we can be sure of an unending supply is our own urine. By harnessing this power as urine passes through a cascade of microbial fuel cells, we have managed to charge a Samsung mobile phone. “The beauty of this fuel source is that we are not relying on the erratic nature of the wind or the sun, we are actually re-using waste to create energy. “So far the microbial fuel power stack that we have developed generates enough power to enable SMS messaging, web browsing and to make a brief phone call. “Making a call on a mobile phone takes up the most energy but we will get to the place where we

can charge a battery for longer periods. “The concept has been tested and it works – it’s now for us to develop and refine the process so that we can develop microbial fuel cells to fully charge a battery.� The microbial fuel cells is an energy converter, which turns organic matter directly into electricity, via the metabolism of live microorganisms. Essentially, the electricity is a by-product of the microbes’ natural life cycle, so the more they eat things like urine, the more energy they generate and for longer periods of time. The electricity output from microbial fuel cells is relatively small and so far the Bristol scientists have only been able to store and accumulate these low levels of energy into capacitors or super-capacitors, for short charge or discharge cycles. It is the first time they have been able to directly charge a mobile phone battery. The project has been funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the Gates Foundation and the Technology Strategy Board. Dr Ieropoulos believes the technology has the future potential to be installed into domestic bathrooms to harness the urine and produce sufficient electricity to power showers, lighting or razors as well as mobile phones.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, July 19, 2013


Johnson amazed by ‘fishbowl’ By Michael Brown In recent weeks, Shaun Johnson has apparently been a contestant on X Factor, been the subject of a $600,000 offer to join Penrith, had dinner with New Zealand sevens coach Gordon Tietjens about playing at the 2016 Rio Olympics and asked for a release from the Warriors. One was said in jest, because he bore a close resemblance to one of the members of a boyband on X Factor, but the others were rumours doing the rounds. None are true, he said. It would be naive to think there is never an element of truth to some rumours around players in almost any sport but, equally, a lot are often incorrectly portrayed as fact when there is little justification for it. It’s often difficult to separate fact from fiction in this era of social media, when the general public can get some tasty tidbit, true or otherwise, into the public eye. Johnson is not yet at the level of interest and speculation of someone like Benji Marshall or Sonny Bill Williams, but it is something he is having to come to terms with as he makes his way in the NRL. “I don’t know where any of this stuff comes from,” the 22-year-old said incredulously. “I don’t know why it always seems to happen around me.” Most of it surfaces because Johnson is seen as crucial to the Warriors’ chances of winning an elusive NRL title and many want to see him locked into a long-term deal. His present contract runs out at the end of 2015, with an option for a further year, but the Warriors are already planning to sit down with him and his manager sooner rather than later. “With the best players, you don’t generally want to let them get into the last year of

their contract,” Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah said. “Shaun is still developing but he’s a top-line player and someone we think will go further and further. I would anticipate we would want to talk to him next year, if not sooner. “He’s not a player anyone in the club would want to lose and nearly all of our fans would say the same thing, I’m sure.” Johnson said he was “very happy” at the Warriors but added: “Who knows what is going to happen down the track? I’m not going to put any limits on anything but, for now, I’m here.” Tonight he will be part of a Warriors side desperate to get back to their winning ways, after their fivegame streak was snapped a fortnight ago by the Rabbitohs in Perth. They will take on a Wests Tigers outfit reeling with the news Marshall has asked for a release from the final two years of his contract so he can switch codes and play rugby union. It might be the last time Johnson plays with or against Marshall, with the former Kiwis captain unlikely to be available for the upcoming World Cup. It will provide an emotional backdrop to a must-win game for the Warriors, and they will also have to contend without injured props Russell Packer (hamstring) and Charlie Gubb (groin). Winger Manu Vatuvei is also still a doubt with a shin injury. Warriors: Kevin Locke, Glen Fisiiahi, Dane Nielsen, Konrad Hurrell, Manu Vatuvei, Thomas Leuluai, Shaun Johnson, Sam Rpira, Nathan Friend, Ben Matulino, Feleti Mateo, Simon Mannering (c), Elijah Taylor.

• Day 2 at the Nationals The Canterbury Country boys registered another win on day two of the National under 17 basketball championships yesterday. After registering the new Canterbury Country amalgamation’s first win on Wednesday, the boys made it two in a row starting day two with a 70-63 win over Counties Manukau in a physical encounter. They then came up against an Otago A side boasting three national squad players and went down 61-89 to finish third in Pool 2. The Canterbury Country girls were edged out 65-67 by Otago A in a thriller before Waikato was too strong 67-31 to finish pool play without a win.

• Rookies in Tall Blacks Four newcomers - including three teenagers - have been called into the New Zealand basketball side for their upcoming tour of China. With several senior players unavailable for a variety of reasons, coach Nenad Vucinic has taken the opportunity to blood new talent. He has brought rookies Reuben Te Rangi, Brook Ruscoe, Jack Salt and Izayah Mauriohooho Le’afa into the national men’s team. Mauriohooho Le’afa is the real bolter in the mix. He wasn’t named for the Tall Blacks trials but made his way to Auckland this week on the recommendation of his Wellington Saints coach and Tall Blacks assistant - Pero Cameron. At 16, he may be the youngest player ever selected for the national men’s team.- APNZ Photo Tetsuro Mitomo 160713-TM-028

U17 netballers hit by injuries By Myles Hume Mid Canterbury’s under 17 netball side have been struck down by a run of ankle injuries just days before they make a bid for a national title. The team flies to Hastings on Sunday for the national U17 netball championships, however it has been a disruptive build up after three players returned from a

tournament in Dunedin with ankle injuries at the weekend. Beth Jopson has already been ruled out while Brittany Butler awaits a scan result from a test yesterday. Ashleigh Bell got through training and will nurse her injury through the tournament. “We do have people lined up just in case, we will just have to see what happens, but it’s not ideal preparation at all,” Mid Canterbury

Valerie Adams won her 37th consecutive competition yesterday. With just over three weeks to the start of the World Championships in Moscow, the double Olympian threw the 4kg shot put 20.76 metres in Lucerne, and was untroubled in beating the world No3 for 2013, German Christina Schwanitz, who managed only 19.65m.

After an initial culture shock in Belgium Ashburton’s Alex Hooper has now settled into the BikeNZ camp to prepare for the Junior World Track Cycling Championships in Glasgow. Hooper’s been on the road but is now re-adjusting back to track cycling, and also taken the time to play at tourist.




ARIES (Mar 21st Apr 20th) As someone who enjoys action you may find the experience of having to deal with so much emotion to be rather awkward. While a positive connection between Jupiter and Neptune earlier today may help you connect with your dreams, you could lack the willpower to make the next move unless someone or something acts as a catalyst.

80km/h it fell off again. The team car left me before I got pulled out by the race officials, so after 15km my day was over. On the plus side I wasn’t the first one in the follow bus we had to sit in if you were pulled out. As well as racing I managed to visit a couple cities in Belgium which was awesome to see some of the old buildings and castles. One experience which really stood out was in the capital Brussels. We hoped off the train and all I noticed were beggars. They were everywhere- in corners, on public seats, just everywhere. We even had one follow us for

about 500m and it took a bit of intimidation to get him to leave after he started getting a little aggressive. However, what I’ve noticed is Belgium is overall a very nice and an old country full of tradition. Now I’ve moved into the BikeNZ base in Oudenarde where I have been able to come together and catch up with the rest of the New Zealand under 19 team which has been awesome. We have now had a few days on the track in Gent which has been a bit of a shock to the system


GEMINI (May 22nd Jun 21st) The challenge today may be to welcome certain feelings that you might have been trying to ignore or even suppress. In your case the element of Water is linked to finances and job satisfaction. It seems that the more you can be accepting of your emotional ups and downs, the more equilibrium you will experience in these key areas.

U17 netball coach Kylie Copland said. In previous years Copland said the team finished “middle of the road”, placing 27th in 2011 and 22nd last year. “It’s always tough at nationals, especially as a small region, but it’s a great experience for the girls because for some of them it’s the first time playing against teams from the North Island,” she said. The team will draw on experience

from a string of tournaments in the build up to the nationals, putting their structured style to the test against usual tournament heavyweights Southland and Hamilton who feature in their pool. “Rotorua are the other team in our pool and they are a bit of an unknown,” Copland said. The team leaves on Sunday, kicking off the champs against Southland on Monday at 12.15pm and playing through until Thursday.

Adams still on top Celtic champs In Moscow, Adams will attempt to win her fourth consecutive world title, having already won at Osaka (2007), Berlin (2009) and Daegu (2011). Adams has one more scheduled competition before turning out in Moscow, a Diamond League meeting in London on July 27.  - APNZ

Getting those track legs back he past two weeks have been pretty full on. I had a really solid week’s training and am feeling really good, and my legs are feeling really good. I raced a few races too and managed to pick up my first top 10 finish on quite a hard course, picking up a bit of prize money too which is always a bonus. I then had a big race, a UCI 1.1 called Gent-Menen, one of the biggest under 19 races in Europe that’s been running for 94 years. Straight from the gun my seat broke and after chasing behind the team car of 10 minutes at


after a couple of months of pure road, but I have settled in and getting back my track legs. The team is looking strong, but it is still early days. We have taken the other two endurance boys up a couple of the classics climbs and they were just in awe of them, and the whole of Belgium as a whole. It’s been good moving into the BikeNZ base as we are here with the elite “Road to Rio” guys, with me and two others flatting with three of them and they’re awesome guys. It is so much better to be able to talk the whole day in English without having to simplify what you’re trying to say or attempt to use some form of sign language. For the next three weeks I will based here before we head to Glasgow, training and doing a couple more races on the road with the endurance boys.

a family affair After two weeks of tough competition, the Celtic Squash Club found its champions for the year, when the finals of all grades were played on Wednesday night. In the A grade, top seed John McDonnell had his hands full keeping the challenge of second seed Paul Cousins at bay. At two hard-fought sets up it looked like McDonnell was in control of the match, but Cousins had other ideas and pulled back a game in the third, and it was game on. In the fourth McDonnell managed to keep just half a step ahead, producing some remarkable retrievals to nullify the superb shots that Cousins was putting in, and the defending champ survived to record his fourth straight club championship title. The ladies final was if anything more exciting. Top seed Di Ness was never going to get it easy against the two-time defending champ Rebecca Abernethy, and that’s how it panned out. After four exhausting sets they were no closer to a result, and in one of those matches that deserves a ‘draw’ result, Ness finally picked up the big points at the end to win 9-7 in the fifth. That left the club in the rare position of having a brother and sister as champions.

Jenni Ryk took the ladies B grade, her experience proving too much for Rachel Prendergast. In the men’s B grade Ed Harrison ended up winning the title in straight sets, but in each of those sets Pete Blacklow pushed right to the limit, and until that final point was scored there was still every chance of a fourth, or a fifth set in the contest. If there was an upset result, it was in the men’s C grade, where fifth seed Nigel Tew, after disposing of top seed Carl Hough in the semis, went to to beat Lawrence McCormick in another straight sets final, but another that could easily have gone the distance. In fact Tew didn’t drop a set throughout the tournament, a remarkable result considering how close all the players in the grade are to each other. Jordan Hooper was the victor in the men’s D grade. He brought his A game along to the final, and that game was too good for the sheer enthusiasm and wonderful running game that new boy Aaron Leckenby produced, but the finals experience will prove invaluable to the younger player. The club’s annual open tournament is on next weekend, and entries are still open for that, players can email entries to steve.d@

LEO (Jul 24th - Aug 23rd) The Moon’s move into Sagittarius may help lighten your spirits, especially if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed by responsibilities or problems associated with the home and family. The urge for pleasure may encourage you to think of yourself. Yet you may still feel slightly guilty and feel obliged to concentrate on others and their needs.

VIRGO (Aug 24th Sep 23rd) Friends may be taking up a lot of your time, perhaps because they have more demands than usual or maybe because you’re more willing to sacrifice your fun and pleasure to help out. While you can be feeling good about playing your part, watch for any telltale signs that you need to return to base and get back to your own affairs.

LIBRA (Sep 24th Oct 23rd) Although you may feel motivated to explore options with regard to your job, life goals or general career path, you might find that some of your yearnings for success go back to childhood and to a desire to live up to other people’s expectations. The current line-up today may encourage you to aim for your own personal satisfaction.

SCORPIO (Oct 24th - Nov 22nd) As Jupiter connects with Neptune you may find that fantasies and dreams of what might be could get in the way of what is actually happening, especially concerning a creative project or romance. If you’re hoping for instant success you could be disappointed. Instead, focus on taking one step at a time and you may be pleasantly surprised.

Queensland utility Matt Gillett has paid tribute to Maroons stalwarts Brent Tate and Justin Hodges after the pair’s stellar displays helped seal an eighth successive State of Origin series success on Wednesday. Centre Hodges scored the decisive try that helped seal the 12-10 victory and Tate, playing on the wing, was named man of the match in a team display lauded as one of the Maroons finest ever. 24-year-old Gillett, playing in only his second series, said he could only marvel at the defensive performances of Hodges and Tate who worked overtime to keep the largely dominant Blues at bay. - AAP

• Khawaja, Harris in Ed Cowan may have played his last Test match, with Australia to give Usman Khawaja a longawaited opportunity for the second Test at Lord’s which started overnight. Ryan Harris will replace Mitchell Starc in the bowling attack, as Australia look to fight back from their 14-run loss at Trent Bridge. Khawaja has been a perennial bridesmaid on recent tours - picked in the party, but never actually getting a Test. He made his debut against England at the SCG back in 2011, but played his last Test in December of that same year. There will be pressure on Khawaja to get it right though, with David Warner likely to be back in the frame for the third Test at Old Trafford. - AAP

• Inglis out for a month? Queensland superstar Greg Inglis is hoping to miss just a fortnight of action, but South Sydney officials aren’t banking on having their fullback on deck for at least the next month of the NRL season. With the Rabbitohs four points clear at the top of the table, Inglis moved to ease fears about the seriousness of a knee injury he suffered early in the second half of Wednesday night’s State of Origin decider. He scoffed at the early prognosis of an eight-week layoff after having scans taken on his strained posterior cruciate ligament. “We’ll wait (to see) what the diagnosis is. At the moment, it’s probably not looking too good,” Inglis told Fox Sports. “Eight weeks is probably a bit far-fetched - hopefully it’s only two to three.” The Rabbitohs released a statement later suggesting a four to eight - AAP week layoff was likely.

“It’s why more people are choosing McGregors”


CANCER (Jun 22nd - Jul 23rd) The current focus may help you define your relationships and also encourage you to express yourself as a way to explore the reactions and responses to who you are. As a Cancer you can be very sensitive to the environment and may tend to pull back if there’s a hint of risk. Today you may have the courage to feel the fear and do it anyway.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23rd - Dec 21st) The Moon in your sign may give you a positive emotional boost that encourages you to aim for personal progress. Yet you may find it’s not so easy to deal with other people who have issues that seem to get in the way of whatever you hope to accomplish. In certain instances you may need to employ a tactful form of avoidance.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd - Jan 20th) Consider using the morning to bolster your reputation and to make inroads into a plan or project that involves teamwork. Later you may feel more relaxed and able to have fun with a close pal or love interest. A spiritual quality may also infuse the day. You can translate this practically and show a little kindness to someone you encounter.

AQUARIUS (Jan 21st - Feb 19th) You may be able to locate resources that you can use to reach important personal goals. Zeroing in on the right organization or expert who can help you get ahead may open a door. Today’s line-up might coincide with the discovery of information that could be useful in enabling you to make an exciting decision about your future.


PISCES (Feb 20th Mar 20th) It may be tempting to chase rainbows or follow the whim of the moment, and by doing so you could come up with some great ideas for future use. However, a potential opportunity to take a step in the right direction could also show up. It may help to prioritize, even if you don’t feel like it, as doing so may be one link in a chain that grows.


ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, July 19, 2013


Crusaders target Genia and Cooper By Patrick McKendry Quade Cooper and Will Genia, the Reds’ dynamic duo, will come in for special attention from the Crusaders tomorrow, but the initial focus from the home side will be on putting their pack on the back foot. A retreating scrum is hard to attack from, and the Crusaders will have worked even harder on their set piece this week despite it being one of the best parts of their game. One of the Crusaders’ mantras is to never neglect working on your strengths in favour of your weaknesses, something which will ring true in this finals series, the 12th consecutive year they have made it this far. For a warning about halfback Genia’s qualities, they need only look at the final between the two teams in Brisbane two years ago. It was his gliding 50m run for a try in the second half at Suncorp Stadium which took the match away from the travel-weary Crusaders. He is returning from injury after a tough three-test series against the British and Irish Lions, but the 25-year-old remains one of the best No9s in the world. As far as Cooper is concerned, it’s anyone’s guess what sort of form he will turn up in. What is almost certain is that he will be booed by the AMI Stadium crowd for his history with home favourite Richie McCaw, who is in the Crusaders match-day squad for the first time this weekend. The boos are likely to be of the pantomime variety, but Cooper will be an extremely unpopular figure in Christchurch if the Reds knock the Crusaders out of the finals series. The crowd will also be aware of how the hostile reception for the Tokoroa-born playmaker helped knock him off his stride during the World Cup. Crusaders loosehead prop Wyatt Crockett acknowledged his side needed to bring much greater physicality to their defence than they did against the Hurricanes, something which is much easier when on the front foot.

“We make those first-up tackles and not let them get over the advantage line with their strikes and ball carriers,” said Crockett, with a nod to Cooper and Genia. The presence of the dependable Tom Taylor in the midfield, alongside Ryan Crotty, will help in this area. Taylor’s all-clear from a head injury is a massive boost for the Crusaders, and not only because it allows Dan Carter to play in the playmaker’s jersey. Like Carter, Taylor is a good defender, rarely takes wrong options and his right-foot kicking is a good counterpoint to the All Black pivot’s left boot. The Reds also look a little light in midfield, with centre Anthony Faingaa ruled out with a hamstring strain and replaced by Jono Lance. As ever, Reds coach Ewen McKenzie was putting a positive spin on the situation. “We have had to reshuffle our backline in some positions and the players coming in now have an opportunity to contribute in a positive way,” he said. The new Wallabies coach will also be hoping to continue his good record against the Crusaders, the Reds winning three of the last four matches between the sides. “History tells us they have a strong record at home where they seemingly always find a way to prevail, but we pushed them in Christchurch in our last match and many teams have continued to do so and come close since.” Crusaders team to play Reds at AMI Stadium on Saturday, kick-off 7.35pm is: Israel Dagg, Tom Marshall, Ryan Crotty, Tom Taylor, Zac Guildford, Dan Carter, Andy Ellis, Kieran Read (c), Matt Todd, George Whitelock, Sam Whitelock, Luke Romano, Owen Franks, Corey Flynn, Wyatt Crockett. Reserves: Ben Funnell, Joe Moody, Luke Whitelock, Richie McCaw, Willi Heinz, Tyler Bleyendaal, Adam Whitelock. Reds: Ben Lucas, Dom Shipperley, Ben Tapuai, Jono Lance, Chris Feauai-Sautia, Quade Cooper, Will Genia, Jake Schatz, Liam Gill, Eddie Quirk, James Horwill (c), Rob Simmons, James Slipper, Saia Faingaa, Greg Holmes. Reserves: Albert Anae, Jono Owen, Ed O’Donoghue, Radike Samo, Beau Robinson, Nick Frisby, Luke Morahan.


• Beauchamp ‘ready’ The prospect of defending against one of the world’s greatest strikers would have most people shaking in their boots - but not Michael Beauchamp. The A-League All Star says he will treat tomorrow’s likely matchup against Manchester United’s Robin van Persie as just another game. “I’m not going to go about business any different than if I was playing a 16-year-old,” Beauchamp said. “I’ve still got to defend the same way and go about the positioning (the same way). Obviously he is a quality striker and played at the highest level for a long time now, but these are the challenges that you want to go up against week-in, week-out. I’m looking forward to it.” - AAP

Ashburton College’s Nicole Purdom makes a break against Christchurch Girls’ at the SPADES Girls’ Rugby Festival in Oamaru.

College girls produce late charge By Jonathan Leask An inexperienced Ashburton College Girls’ 1st XV finished fifth at the SPADES Girls’ Rugby Festival in Oamaru this week. The college girls attended the open secondary schools tournament for the first time, and after three losses they finished with back-toback victories to be fifth.

They came up against the eventual tournament winners Southland Girls’ first up going down 20-0 and then went down to Christchurch Girls’ 10-7, with Emma Waite scoring the try and Nicole Purdom converting, before taking on the other eventual finalist, Forward Federation, going down 39-0. They then had Rangi Ruru and produced a strong 24-0 win and capped off the 15-a-side tourna-

ment with a 29-0 win over Otago Girls’ to finish fifth. On the final day the competition changed to a seven-a-side tournament, with five Ashburton players chosen to play in an Aoraki team. Purdom, Waite, Hannah Wright, Annie McDonald and Libby Badham lined up in the Aoraki side and had two wins and one loss to finish third in division A. An Ashburton College team com-

Momentum vital for Mid Canterbury By Jonathan Leask Mid Canterbury are looking to maintain their momentum at the end of the Mainland Football division one league season tomorrow. Mid Canterbury were the first team to deny Universities a win this season in their 1-1 draw last

peted in B division, which was played on half fields, and had a win and two losses. In the final game they hammered Rangi Ruru 45-0 with Georgia Lysaght scoring her first try in three seasons of rugby. Nicole Purdom was named Ashburton College’s most valuable player and Emma Waite was named most improved player, with both also named in the tournament team.

The NSW Waratahs admit negotiating with soughtafter dual international Israel Folau is risky business at State of Origin crunch time. The Waratahs remain quietly confident of retaining Folau for the 2014 Super Rugby season, and hopefully beyond, saying talks with the Wallabies revelation are “pretty well advanced”. But backline coach Alan Gaffney, himself a diehard South Sydney fan, admits it’s a nervous time trying to get Folau to put pen to paper in the week of rugby league’s showpiece Origin series decider. The youngest player to make his rugby league Test debut, Folau also made five Origin appearances for Queensland before switching codes in 2011, firstly to the AFL and then to rugby this year. He is still in the sights of 2012 NRL grand finalists Canterbury and Gaffney suspected the 24-year-old would have been on the edge of his seat as the Maroons hung on to clinch an eighth straight series win with a 12-10 victory over NSW at ANZ Stadium. Gaffney was hopeful Folau would remain with the Tahs after being their leading tryscorer and making a spectacular Wallabies debut against the British and Irish Lions last month. - AAP

Cheetahs ‘conservative’

of the school sides in 18th grade division one against Shirley Boys’ at the Ashburton Domain. Then on Sunday the Mid Canterbury women will be missing a few pieces of their puzzle for the home rematch with league winners Selwyn Black in the third round of the cup competition, after a 5-0 and 4-0 wins in the last two weeks.

By David Barbeler Brumbies coach Jake White says it’s only a perception the Cheetahs play running rugby, labelling them as one of Super Rugby’s most conservative sides. The Cheetahs will be rewarded for a stellar 2013 season with their first ever finals berth on Sunday when they take on the Brumbies in Canberra. While many pundits believe the Bloemfontein based side is the most entertaining South African team to watch, former Springboks and World Cup winning coach White is not convinced. “There’s this perception, it’s funny how it works, that certain teams score a lot of tries and they run from everywhere,” White said. “It’s not the case at all. “I think they are probably one of the most conservative teams in the competition. “They don’t play like Australian teams, they actually play more like South African teams.” White’s assertions are loosely backed up by the stats. The Cheetahs have scored just 38 tries Henry Speight: Cheetahs backs dangerous this year, less than any Australian or New

• Streaker already banned The man who interrupted the State of Origin decider was already wearing a lifetime ban from all rugby league games when he streaked naked onto the field. Wati Holmwood, 33, nearly made the length of ANZ Stadium at Wednesday’s Origin decider before a misstep gave security the chance to tackle him just shy of the try line. His dash has earned him a second lifetime ban from attending all NRL games. The first came in 2011 after he interrupted play during a Wests Tigers finals meeting with the Warriors. The thickset streaker will face court next month over the incident, where he could face trespass charges for breaching his prior ban. Holmwood’s uncle Philip Holmwood has since leapt to his unemployed nephew’s defence, saying he is a “good boy”. “He’s a quiet boy, he just keeps it to himself,” he said. Billy Slater joked the impressive dash could just about win him a legitimate place on the field. “He must have some pace, the big fellow, he’s done well, hasn’t he?” Slater said. “Is he a Queenslander?” - AAP

The Reds will return Horwill and Genia, and while the latter will have Cooper alongside, they haven't been playing the same tune all season across the park. Their ability to pull a rabbit rings a caution but not on form. Two weeks of hard yakka almost went out the window when the Crusaders presented half-fizzed hosting the Canes. McCaw's presence on the wood couldn't be under-estimated but you'd expect big match grunters Crockett, Franks, and Whitelock bros to win the grind and for Read and Todd to win the ground. They're six straight hosting the Reds back to '99 and should win like it. The Cheetahs will combine a brick wall of defenders at the fringes with the relentless hunger of Brussow and Labuschagne on the ground feeding a 1 to 15 opportunist link game, but an average record in Australasia and a lack of big gamers in the halves, should sit them in Canberra where they're 0-4. The Brumbies again proved you can't visit Force half-cocked but you'd expect Smith and Mowen to step up and negate the Cheetahs at the breakdown. They're sharp through the line and that you can put your house on Lealiifano in the clutch means their all season drill should improve a 4-2 overall record in this.

Zealand side other than the Western Force (26) and the Queensland Reds (31) - who White also believes people mistake for a free-flowing side. “They play exactly like the Queensland Reds. They kick as much as the Queensland Reds as well,” he said. “They kick a lot, they let you play in your own half, and if you make a mistake then they pounce.” The Cheetahs’ backrow works extremely hard to help turn that ball over, with Pieter Labuschagne (261), Heinrich Brussow (205) and Phillip van der Walt (203) all in the top six for most tackles made this year according to Sportsdata. “They’ve got enough players there that once they get some turnover ball, Willie Le Roux and all those outside backs can really punish you,” he said. Brumbies winger Henry Speight, who has scored eight of the Brumbies 43 tries this year, labelled the Cheetahs’ outside backs trio of Raymond Rhule, Hennie Daniller and le Roux as extremely dangerous. “It’ll be just down to us playing to our patterns and making sure we hold onto the ball and not letting them force any turnovers,” Speight said. - AAP

Manly backrower Glenn Stewart is finally getting his timing back, and his timing could not be better. Stewart has been slow to find his best after missing the opening six rounds of the season following minor knee surgery, but there have been signs in recent weeks that the former NSW Origin and Test representative was running into form. “Each week I can feel little parts getting better,” Stewart said. “My knee’s certainly getting much better. We haven’t been able to field the same team two or three weeks in a row which helps with the combinations so if I can start getting my knee right, a bit of fitness and those combinations, at least it’s at the right time of the year.” With one third of the regular season remaining, the Sea Eagles are clinging to their spot in the NRL top four ahead of Sunday’s home game against the ninth-placed Gold Coast.- AAP

A failure to front man on man will see Wests in trouble again here, notwithstanding they can get in the heads of Warriors. Simona and Lawrence are in form and real spin from Marshall and Farah might give them a look at 5-3 hosting despite a fixed looking position around 14th most numbers. On paper they were blown out against the Bunnies but the Warriors kept with the favourites for the majority until the travel caught up. The same attitude and a defence which had held their previous five opponents to under 20 might do here but they're a shocker in the match up, 1-4 since 2010 (1-3 at Leichardt). Eels coach Stuart remains difficult to follow; 'I prefer that loss tonight than fluking a win because we had a dig', after losing to Penrith. And sure he does on a losing streak of seven. They're bottom all numbers, 1-7 the road, and winless in the capital since '06. Milford and Papalii confirmed what they've represented for a while in round 17, a new wave of Raiders stars putting clean linebreaks on the Cowboys to sit around eighth all numbers. The week off should see a few return while allowing Campese more time to get the plays from the halves in sync and at 3-0 since 2010 this looks like a walk up start. Although 0-0 for ages the Sharks were on the back foot at times deep into the third quarter visiting Brisbane, but Carney grabbed the game. His kicking is a major factor but it's that astonishing ability to snap a line open so fast he's out in 'where-is-everybody' country that really catches you. Visiting Kogarah last out the Roosters donutted a fourth opponent this season while putting 36 on the Dragons to remain number two all numbers. They're ranking right up there both ends and look to have an edge over the Sharks but if there was a week when they might be vulnerable this would be it at 1-3-1 since 2010. The injuries are drying up at the Knights and the tightening grunt of Mason, Smith, and Scott, backed by Mullen's direction, and the super dangerous combo of Uate and Gagai make them a terrifying stop at full clip. They're beginning to play like a finals side but you'd want to see another, notwithstanding they're 4-0 since 2011 and handy in Penrith. The latter are around seventh, have given up over 20 just once the last seven (in Canberra), but if their no-frills-no-thrills game proves enough to improve a 1-4 record hosting the Knights it'll be narrowly, this as much about the visitor's 2-6 road record as anything. Big losses straight have dented the Titans and with Idris gone (broken leg) and Bird and Myles coming off Origin you'd suspect they'll need a mini-miracle to get up at Brookvale. The positives are the two wins among a 2-5 road record this season have both come in Sydney and they bring a cracking record over Manly; 2-0 at Brookvale and 3-2 all venues since 2010. The Sea Eagles are 9-6-1, and fourth the ladder. They're not exactly gun proof in front right now but Foran is finding his 2012 groove and they're stacked with linebreakers capable of shredding a defence which can't make a tackle lately. Below-zero expectations on the Dragons might see them throw it around with Dugan returning but at around 15th they're largely irrelevant, probably safe from the spoon and even more remote for the finals. They'd need Souths to front assuming the same here, the 5-5 split back to '06 compiled by very different sides. The host is also coming from a week off but instead of going into it three losses straight (the Dragons latest), they're unbeaten five and 14-2 after skinning the Warriors in Perth. They haven't given one of these up since 2011, 3-0 that period, 09/03/13 and they'd have to be asleep to lose this.

Will steps up for the team

Kicking tee a new responsibility By Jonathan Leask Celtic’s Will Hintz started the season charged with pilfering the ball, and now finds himself also in charge of kicking it. The flanker has been handed the kicking duties for the green machine as they look to wrap up a third win on the trot to take some momentum into the Watters Cup semi-finals. “Sean Strange was doing it for a while and then Matt O’Sullivan took over, but he got concussed against Rakaia,” Hintz said. “I don’t really know what I was thinking in the game. I just stepped up and kicked.” In that Rakaia match, Hintz did step up, and he landed the crucial conversion that got Celtic a 7-5 win, and with O’Sullivan sitting out his three week stand down he Left: Celtic flanker Will Hintz has temporarily taken up kicking duties.

slotted two of three conversions in last week’s win over Hampstead, and will hope to remain on target against Southern tomorrow. A back in his younger years, Hintz made the move to the forwards in the under 16s, and when he stepped up to seniors the lean loose forward was used sparingly with Mid Canterbury’s openside Nick McKain having a mortgage on the number seven jersey. But last year he stamped his claim as the number one scavenger and he is, for now, the number one kicker. Celtic and Southern have already locked horns this season, with a last gasp penalty proving the difference when Strange landed a 40m penalty to clinch a 32-29 win at Hinds. Hintz is hoping his side can get the job done a bit earlier this time rather than rely on him landing a late shot. After all he will be head down right in the game’s coalface, ripping into rucks in what looms as

From the sideline

another rugged forward battle. The two sides had a memorable battle in the Watters Cup semi-finals last year, when Celtic stunned a previously unbeaten Southern 24-20 before they fell to Methven in the final. The boot of Hintz could be called on to lead the side back to the Watters Cup where they will look to go one better this year. “They say you have to lose a final before you win one, so hopefully that rings true for us.” In the other match of the round Hampstead have nothing to play for but pride when they head up to Methven. After three losses Hampstead have already been knocked out of the semi-finals for a fourth straight season. Methven have the opportunity of a home semi-final if they can get the win, in what would be an 11th straight win over Hampstead, and a bonus point win would put them on top of the table, with Rakaia already locking in a home semi-final.

Test yourself with the Guardian’s weekday quiz

What is this person famous for?

Who said it?

Home semi-finals ‘the carrot’ At the clubs’ request the Mid Canterbury Rugby Union has brought back home semi-finals this season. Previously the semi-finals have been held at the neutral venue of the Ashburton Showgrounds but the clubs questioned whether that rewarded round robin performances, and the Mid Canterbury Rugby

Union (MCRFU) agreed. “With the Watters Cup and limited amount of games we looked at what incentives there were for the clubs to push for top spots,” MCRFU chief executive Ian Patterson said. “The rugby admin council deemed playing for home advantage in the semi-final was the carrot.”

“Well, I can play in the centre, on the right, and occasionally on the left side.”

With the short nature of the competition, and one win in the round robin essentially able to earn a team a semi-final and a shot at the cup, the re-introduction of home semi-finals adds motivation to performing well in the round robin to get the home field advantage, rather than just doing enough to make the top four.

By Jonathan Leask Collegiate hold the lead heading into the final round of Senior B rugby’s second round Centennial Mug tomorrow, but they may not stay there. Collegiate have the bye with Tinwald only three points in arrears and Southern a further point back in the race for top four spots and home semi-finals. Tinwald take on the ailing

Allenton, who after featuring up the top of the table in round one are languishing near the bottom in the second round, but are capable of thwarting Tinwald. Southern, winners of the Michael Duff Memorial in the first round, are third and also capable of catching Collegiate if they beat Celtic, and a bonus point could see them finish top. Celtic are fourth, five points clear of Rakaia. Collegiate won three of the four

senior B trophies last year and will reclaim the Centennial Mug if Tinwald can’t get past Allenton and Celtic deny Southern a win. However, Rakaia will be cheering for Southern as they need a bonus point win over Mt Somers and for Celtic to lose by eight or more to take fourth place. Five points adrift in fifth if things fall their way, Rakaia’s first round win and second round 30-all draw would put the boys in blue through to the semi-finals.

International return for Ryder ‘getting close’ Jesse Ryder will be an Otago cricketer on October 1, and it may not be long before his international career is revived. Ryder’s switch to the south was confirmed by the Otago Cricket Association yesterday. The explo-

“It just feels right. The Otago environment feels like the logical place for Jesse to go,” he said. Ryder, who is leaving Wellington after nearly a decade, has not played for the Black Caps since February 2012. He made himself unavailable after a “deeply stressful and emotional time” in the spotlight.

In March, he was the victim of an assault that left him in hospital in Christchurch in an induced coma. Klee said a return to international cricket was hopefully not too far away for Ryder. “He’s going to need to perform, firstly. We all want to see some consistency and stability from him. “He met with Mike Hesson for a

good talk last week. We’ve maintained communication with the Black Caps right through this hiatus. “At some point, Jesse needs to get back into international cricket. He just needed some time to sort himself out. “We’re getting close to that point. After what happened in Christchurch, we realised there JUST

Ryder’s manager Aaron Klee said Otago appealed as a new home because of the presence of Johnson and the enthusiasm of Ryder’s new team-mates.
