Local beauty to take on the universe



Ashburton could soon earn itself a national title, as the home of Miss Universe New Zealand, 2014. And Monique Cooley will be doing everything she can to ensure she brings home the winner’s sash when she competes against 22 other young women for the title in September. The 24-year-old is no newcomer to beauty shows – she won Miss Otago in 2011, was third runnerup in Miss Universe New Zealand in 2012. She thought her days on stage where behind her, but the Miss Otago competition organisers had other ideas and they asked her to enter this year’s contest. Her first instinct was to say no. “I wasn’t really sure whether I wanted to



have another go. It was a great experience and I learned so much but with a new town and a new job, did I really want to take on something else?” This time around the show has a new director, an overseas beauty retreat as a lead in to the final. It will also be televised. “Two years ago when I was third runner-up. I was just thankful I’d got that close so I guess that’s what pushed me into doing it again,” she said. She completed a bio, filed a photo and took her chances in the pack of 250 entrants. From there 120 were chosen for “stiletto camp” Monique made the cut to 40 and the waiting game began. “I was so nervous. The results were released online on Monday. I sat in front of the computer hitting refresh again and again. I just can’t believe I made the top 23,” she said. Now the hard work begins – daily gym sessions, healthy eating and getting out and about around the district to ensure people know her face.

Five things that may interest you

Glimpse of Christian Grey

So far, the only glimpse we’ve had of Fifty Shades of Grey’s leading man is from the back, a tagline teasing: “Mr Grey will see you now.” But now, fans of E.L James’ wildly successful erotic novel have got their first official look at Christian Grey. A newly released still from the upcoming film adaptation shows actor Jamie Dornan as Grey, smouldering as he sits in the driver’s seat of his sports car. But while most fans seemed happy with the former Calvin Klein model’s brooding gaze, some were still pining for Sons of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnam. Initially cast in the role, Hunnam recently revealed quitting the project was a “heartbreaking” decision.

Facebook gives them away Photos of two New Zealand men posing with a number plate in the Cook Islands are being investigated by police after they were posted on Facebook. But the two men say they regret taking the plate and will send it back. Rarotonga convenience store owner Clem Fortes, 51, laid a complaint with the Cook Islands police about his wife Vicki’s missing number plate – which says DABOSS – after seeing pictures of two men posing with it on Facebook this week. Mr Fortes believed the plate had been taken from their Hilux truck while the couple were watching the weekend’s rugby match between the All Blacks and England at a local pub.

Back in time

Prisoners in the early 20th century appeared to be very co-operative, as evident in this report, published June 20, 1915: Constable Kidd arrested a young man at Hinds. The constable drove his prisoner to Ashburton in a sulky, and as it was crossing a water race the traces broke and the horse got clear. The shafts of the conveyance immediately went skywards and its occupants were tipped out of the back. They had a chase of a couple of miles before they recaptured the horse. The prisoner was taken to Christchurch by the afternoon express.

If you’re wondering what happened to Who’s The Boss heart-throb Tony Danza, you can find him on Broadway. Danza will tread the boards again for the first time in 13 years with a musical adaptation of the 1992 film Honeymoon in Vegas. The actor, who also starred in the TV series Taxi before his Who’s the Boss fame, will take on the role of gambler Tommy Korman, the character made famous by James Caan in the film. Actress Brynn O’Malley will play the bride-tobe, depicted by Sarah Jessica Parker on the big screen, while Rob McClure will take on the role Nicolas Cage played in the early 1990s. Gary Griffin will direct the show, with previews on November 18 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre ahead of its official opening on January 15. Danza last appeared on Broadway in a 2001 production of The Producers, while he previously featured in The Iceman Cometh in 1999 and A View From the Bridge in 1997. Rumours about Danza’s Broadway return first surfaced in 2011.

Kiwis opt for cheaper eats Kiwis are opting for cheaper eats, but dining on them more frequently than ever before, according to the latest snapshot of the New Zealand hospitality industry. The 2014 Hospitality Report provides industry insight from a year that cemented casual dining and shared plates, no reservations policies, “gastro pubs”, and new takes on Asian and Mexican cuisine on to menus around the country. The sector experienced 6.3 per cent growth with $7.6 billion of total industry sales – about $1688 per Kiwi – that were dominated by the cafe and restaurant sector and Auckland-based establishments. Restaurant Association chief executive Marisa Bidois said the new habits of New Zealanders to dine out more frequently but on lower-priced food was behind the rise. An increase in casual dining establishments that typically offered small shared plates of gourmet food instead of larger-sized meals was feeding the practice, she said.

Firefighting New Zealand’s most trusted profession By Erin TaskEr

Ashburton’s volunteer firefighters say they’re just ordinary people doing an extraordinary job. But that job just happens to be New Zealand’s most trusted profession. Last year they were joined at the top of the Reader’s Digest most trusted poll by paramedics, ending a long solo run at the top for firefighters, but this year they’ve claimed it back all for themselves. The results, released yesterday, showed paramedics had dropped back to second. For firefighters it’s an honour, but Ashburton’s volunteers say they don’t do the job for the accolades. “We’re not here to be heroes, we are just normal people here to help out,” Ashburton volunteer Craig Wakelin said. They’re the ones people call when they’re at their worst. People call them when they need help with the knowledge that they’ll get that help from

Bomb blasts cause confusion By Derek Cheng The right mix of weather conditions combined with 500-pound bomb explosions in Kaipara, north of Auckland, has been revealed as the cause of mystery bangs heard across Auckland. The Air Force yesterday acknowledged it had dropped 12 bombs – each one equivalent to 440 sticks of dynamite – during training on Wednesday in their Kaipara Bomb Range, mostly around lunch time and in the afternoon. Normally the sound has a radius of 10 to 15 kms, but

Wednesday’s explosions were felt across Auckland, including Stanmore Bay, Henderson and Devonport, 70km away. Air Vice-Marshal Mike Yardley, Chief of Air Force, said the bomb-drop was routine training that had been publicly notified, but he was concerned that it had caused such a stir so far afield. “We’re not intending to frighten the public, that’s for sure, and even if we put out notices in the Herald, not everyone reads the classifieds and this would have come as a surprise.” A 500-pound bomb has an

explosive component of 150 pounds. “It’s an unusual noise, and a very large noise. This is the first time in my 30 years in the Air Force that I’ve known there to be an interest greater than in the immediate vicinity. It is very unusual – an amazing weather phenomenon.” MetService meteorologist John Law said a decent westerly wind, humidity and low clouds all conspired to carry the noise from the coast to the city. “At Whenuapai, the southern end of the range, there was a westerly of about 30km/h, and low cloud, which would

have helped reflect the sound between the ground and the cloud, propagating it further to the east. “It acted like a channel for the sound, as it were.” He said humidity – about 70 per cent – and density in the atmosphere also helped to push the sound. “It’s not unusual. It’s just that if the conditions are right, you can hear things a lot further away.” Air Vice-Marshal Yardley said the Air Force always took the weather into account, but not normally with regards to the sound. - APNZ


Electoral enrolment packs coming your way By Sue newman

Ashburton’s posties will be struggling with an extra heavy mail load next week as electoral enrolment campaign information finds its way into the district’s mail boxes. Yesterday around 23,000 letters from the Electoral Office arrived at the Ashburton Mailroom, ready to be sorted and delivered from Monday. And that means a couple of full-on days for posties said head mail officer David Aberhart. The letters contain information about updating electoral information. Everyone aged 18 and over must be on an electoral roll to be legally able to vote in this year’s general election on September 20. The work of making sure the right mail find the right recipients has been made a little easier for postal staff as it has arrived in the mail room pre-sorted into runs, Mr Aberhart said. To deal with the extra letters all hands will be on deck at 6.30am on Monday and a full complement of nine posties will be on their bikes from Monday until all the packs are delivered.

Ashburton continues to reap the benefits of a shortage of accommodation in Christchurch. Accommodation sales at the Ashburton Trust’s establishments in May were up 16 per cent on May 2013 and for the year to date were up 27 per cent. However, the good times are not likely to last, trust chief executive Giles Beal said, with

As she prepares for her tilt at the Miss Universe competition Monique Cooley is urging Ashburton to get in behind her bid. Unlike many contests, Miss Universe is won by a combination of public and judges’ vote. Being a newcomer to Ashburton, Monique knows she needs to work hard to generate a big online vote tally. While the experience gained in the 2012 event will be an advantage, she said she is a very different person this time round – a blonde bob has replaced her long dark hair and she admits to being more confident about who she is as a person. The event might pit 23 young women against one another, but Monique said there is never any bitchiness or cattiness between contestants. “We all support each other and we know the judges will pick the girl who will best represent New Zealand,” she said.

increasing competition as new accommodation providers in Christchurch come on stream. “Forward bookings remain strong for the coming financial year but over the next two years we expect the market to present continued challenges,” he said. He anticipates the first signs of Christchurch’s accommodation recovery will be seen this summer. The bulk of the trust’s revenue comes from on-premises sales and while these are up

four per cent year to date, the late night market continued to present significant challenges because of increased competition and a tough regulatory environment, Mr Beal said. “We’re exploring a number of options to address this issue, however, until there is sufficient clarity around the proposed Local Alcohol Policy and its possibly detrimental effects on the Ashburton market, strategies are limited.” While there were few growth opportunities in the

off-licence market, Mr Beal said the trust had seen a significant lift in sales, up 14 per cent for the year and up 4 per cent in May. With cashflow remaining strong, the trust was working through plans for a number of re-investment projects. With earthquake damage at Speights Ale House now completed and painting well under way, the trust planned to invest in a refurbishment of the site. This is scheduled for early 2015.

A plucky dog named ‘The Fonz’ has saved his owner from being charged by an angry bull on a farm near Taihape. The Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter said the farm worker in his 30s had been charged by a bull while mustering on a horse yesterday. Horse and rider were thrown to the ground and the horse bolted, leaving the man scrambling to avoid the cattle beast. “Luckily ‘The Fonz’ the faithful dog came to the rescue and stood his ground protecting his fallen master from further injury,” said Chris Moody, helicopter pilot. Other workers then came to the man’s aid. The horse was eventually located some distance away. - APNZ

Laying down some tracks all part of learning process Many of them may not even consider themselves musicians, but that did not stop 80 Mid Canterbury youngsters from creating their own quality soundtracks this week. As part of a Mid Canterbury Fibre Connected Schools (MCFCS) two-day worskshop at the Ashburton Trust Event Centre, Christchurch school teacher and Kahuna Education’s Jim Cullinane held classes teaching youngsters the intricacies of the Garage Band app on their iPads, where they layered beats with real life instruments and even added vocals to create their own hits. The youngsters included Mount Hutt College’s Simon Harford and Reilly Cooke, both 12 (right). Pupils were selected by their schools, and even those without a musical bent were counting the beat by the time yesterday’s workshop was over. MCFCS facilitator Jan Anderson said it was about extending workshops to local pupils who could collaborate and bounce ideas to take back to their classrooms.


Some principals mull controversial leave pay moves By Myles HuMe

Questions are being raised over an employment practice some Mid Canterbury principals are considering to reduce the increased cost to call in relief teachers. The practice sees teachers who are on leave for one day lose up to two days’ pay when they are on discretionary leave to free up funds to cover the increased cost of bringing in relief teachers. It has prompted a teachers’ union to question the “unusual” tactic, which believes the onus should be on the employer, not the employee, to cover the cost if a teacher is on leave without pay. Mid Canterbury schools have voiced their concern with a Ministry of Education-imposed change in 2012 to resolve “a long-standing administrative error”, which doubled the amount of staffing entitlement used when schools called in relief teachers. That now means every day a teacher takes off, it costs a school almost two days of staffing, leaving some schools with a struggle to balance their books and keep staffing in check. To counter the problem when staff are on leave without pay for events such as weddings or court proceedings, sources have told the Guardian some local schools are considering the questionable

practice. Mid Canterbury Principals’ Association president Chris Murphy said it was not something he considered for Methven Primary, and “schools must work within the collective agreement and the spirit of the collective agreement”. “It’s a point that’s yet to be clarified, I know there has been some work done about it with the school trustees association, but I am not aware of any hard and fast ruling.” NZEI immediate past president Ian Leckie would not go as far to say it would breach the teachers’ collective agreement, but questioned if it was best practice. “Any approved leave is a cost to the employer, and that comes from the school’s operations grant. It’s most unusual to put the reliever’s cost on to the person on leave,” he said. Mr Leckie said $68.2 million was spread across schools at the time to help with the increased reliever cost, but Mid Canterbury principals say it has not been enough. To ease the cost, Tinwald School principal Peter Livingstone said his school gave part-time staff additional hours to cover absent staff which worked out cheaper and allowed continuity in the school.

Biggest, best challenge yet By Sue NewmaN

Steve Prescott has faced a few challenges in his life but he reckons the one he’s tackling now might be the best and the biggest yet. Three weeks into the job as sports facility manager for Ashburton’s EA Networks Centre, Mr Prescott said he has been inspired by both his new job and by the positive community attitude to the complex. “Normally you have some knockers for a project but I haven’t heard one derogatory comment about the facility,” he said. He might be a facilities manager without a facility to manage, but he’s packed a lot into the past three weeks. He’s visited other facilities, met with community pool staff, written staffing plans and is working his way through meeting up with user groups. “It’s great. It feels like I’ve already been here for a lifetime,” he said. On July 1 he takes over running the Ashburton Community Pool and said he was impressed with the standard of staff employed there. Many are likely to come over to the new complex and join what will be a staffing contingent of about 25 full time equivalents. While he’s no newcomer to

running aquatic complexes having managed facilities at QE II Park and Jelly Park in Christchurch and in Horowhenua before spending the past 17 years at Dunedin’s Moana Pool, Mr Prescott said he is excited by the challenge of running a complex where a pool, courts, a gym, a café and a sports house will all be part of the deal. “The stadium is new territory but it works on the same principles as a pool, there have

to be opportunities for everyone to use it. “It’s great to have diversification and challenge, it keeps you stimulated,” he said. He anticipates user demand could see planning for extra facilities coming quite quickly. “If people start pushing specific ideas we’ll be keen to listen and that’s what I’m doing now, a lot of listening and meeting with people to talk about their expectations. Balancing every-

one’s needs will be a challenge.” Mr Prescott won the job from 49 applicants. “I’m just glad they picked me to run it. It was a very good day when I got the phone call to say I’d been successful,” he said. The complex is likely to open in April or May and while Mr Prescott has months of hard work ahead, he’s taking a quick break to compete in the World Masters Swimming championships in Montreal in August.


Police say there has been a dramatic increase in synthetic cannabis being sold online since the drugs were made illegal last month. A man has been arrested in Christchurch and police had ordered the deletion of two social media pages. Christchurch field intelligence officer Constable Darren Sims said there had been a “dramatic increase” in the availability of illegal substances on social media sites. “Police are receiving information on a regular basis from members of the public who are keen to help and

are passionate about getting drugs off our streets and out of our community,” he said. “We have identified and spoken to people selling and offering to sell drugs on social media sites and warned them about their actions,” he said. “If they choose to carry on then we’ll take the next step and prosecute.” Anyone with information is asked to contact Christchurch police on (03) 363 7400 or email Information can also be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. - APNZ

However the shop’s operator is keeping tight-lipped about the incident and declined to comment. Several sources have confirmed reports of a volunteer at the Marton Christian Welfare Society op-shop being pricked by a used hypodermic needle when sorting through donated items which had been dropped off. Sergeant Peter Wood of the Marton police said he had been notified about the incident but had not become involved. A staff member at a Wanganui op-shop, who did not want to be named, said knives and nunchucks were the most dangerous items brought into the store. Another op-shop spokesperson said they tipped out bags in front of people who brought in donated goods as a safety measure. - APNZ

On arrival volunteer firefighters called a local Riversdale contractor to the scene, who used a gas cutter to help free the man’s hand. “It takes a bit of guts to say they didn’t have the right gear, and to call someone else,” a Fire Service spokesman said. “That made all the difference.” The injured man was later flown to Dunedin Hospital with severe injuries to his hand. - APNZ

The National Government is denying a dirty tricks campaign against Labour Leader David Cunliffe over his letter of support for businessman Donghua Liu’s residency application. Mr Cunliffe cancelled his plans to spend yesterday away from Parliament and instead returned to deal with the fall out of the revelation that he had written to Immigration NZ on behalf of Liu in 2003. The Herald revealed the existence of the letter after weeks of criticism of National’s links with Liu by Labour. Yesterday afternoon Mr Cunliffe tried to turn the tables on National by insinuating it was mounting a smear campaign against him. “I think you should ask the Government how come the Prime Minister had a copy of that letter two weeks earlier when the media put in an OIA on Monday.” Immigration Minister Michael Woodhouse yesterday confirmed his office had briefed Mr Key’s office about the letter within a few days of learning of it on May 9. “That didn’t include sending the Prime Minister’s office the letter”, Mr Woodhouse said.

“What I notified them of was the existence of the letter. At that point I hadn’t even seen the letter myself I was just told it was on file.” Mr Key’s office was “made aware of the existence of the letter and the broad contents of it, that he (Mr Cunliffe) had supported a speeding up of the process of the application”. Mr Woodhouse learned of the letter just a day after the Herald requested Immigration NZ’s entire file on Liu’s residency application. However, Mr Woodhouse’s office said the letter came to his attention when he asked officials for a detailed briefing on Liu as a result of Labour’s questions to him about his links with the millionaire property developer. The Herald’s Official Information Act request for Liu’s file was declined for privacy reasons but the letter was released when a further request for any material in the file regarding MPs was submitted early this week. Senior Cabinet Minister and National Government strategist Steven Joyce denied any dirty tricks campaign against Mr Cunliffe. “Mr Cunliffe has been running his own dirty tricks campaign and it seems to be working. He hasn’t been telling himself what he’s been doing.” - APNZ

Operation Python nets 20 arrests More than 20 people have been arrested following a series of co-ordinated drug raids. Code named Operation Python, the operation involved more than 60 Police and Customs staff including detectives, dog handlers, public safety officers and members of police specialised units. They were deployed to properties in Wellington, Porirua, Tawa, the Kapiti Coast and Hutt Valley over the past seven days targeting organised crime and drugs imported from the inter-

net. Twenty-nine search warrants were executed which led to the arrest of 21 people aged between 21 and 52. Those arrested will be appearing before the courts on charges including serious drug dealing, receiving stolen property and possession of firearms. The drugs seized included methamphetamine, cocaine, LSD, GBL, MDMA and cannabis. At a Wellington address, police located a significant haul of stolen property, $20,000

worth of methamphetamine and a large number of samurai swords. A house in Tawa valued at more than $300,000 was also restrained by police’s Central Asset Recovery Unit. Detective Inspector Darrin Thomson said the joint seizures of drugs and guns was concerning. “At one address we found a cache of firearms that presents a real risk to police staff and the community.” During the course of the investigation, police worked close-

ly with Customs and identified that there were people importing drugs through the internet including using the underground website Silk Road. “Our message to those involved in using the internet for this purpose is that Customs and police are actively investigating this method and we will continue to take action where appropriate,” Mr Thomson said. “People may think it is somehow anonymous but we can assure you that this technique is being actively monitored.

“Over the past few days we have seen a number of people who would not fit the usual profile of a drug importer get themselves caught up in serious offending. “This has had a devastating impact on their families.” Over the past seven years close to 600 arrests have been made, dozens of firearms and weapons have been taken off the streets and millions of dollars of assets restrained and drugs seized as a result of Operation Python. - APNZ

Slow drivers a concern Slow drivers are fast becoming a problem in Mosgiel. And Senior Constable Karren Bye has had enough. “Slow drivers are considered inconsiderate because they impede the normal flow of traffic,” she said yesterday. Mosgiel roads were flat, straight and well maintained and there was no excuse for motorists to drive around the town so far under the posted speed limit, she said. “But it has progressively gotten worse.” The community constable confirmed she had issued an infringement notice for a motorist driving too slow _ 38km/h in a 50km/h zone on Factory Rd. - APNZ

New kiwifruit variety


Bins donation puts school back on track Rubbish and recycling bins destroyed in an arson attack at Rakaia School have been replaced thanks to the generosity of an Ashburton business. Bunnings Warehouse’s Rachel Russell donated four new bins to principal Mark Ellis and his school to replace those lost in the May 24 fire. Young vandals were believed to have been responsible for the fire which destroyed the bins and nearby plants, as well as a shade sail. Around $5000 worth of damage was thought to have been caused by the fire. PHOTO TETSURO MITOMO 190614-TM-002


Brazen burglars clean out motel units By HamisH mcNeilly Brazen burglars took bedding, televisions and a microwave from two Dunedin motel units. Rear aluminium windows were removed to gain entry into two units at Adrian Motel, St Kilda, on Tuesday night. “They were very cheeky because there was an occupied

room in between the two rooms that have been targeted,” owner/operator Janice McDowall said. A 32inch LCD TV was removed from each room, with a microwave, a painting and all the bedding also taken from the units. “Everything from the mattress topper pad right up to

rolled up towels and cushions on top of the bed ... layers of linen; mattress protector, waterproof protector, sheets, duvet inner, top covers and blankets.” “They have cleaned out the lot.” She estimated the items were worth about $3000. The theft would be covered by insurance.

Police believe the burglars may have gained access over a rear fence via an empty section. Anyone who saw people acting suspiciously in the area on Tuesday night was urged to contact Dunedin police on 471 4800 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. - APNZ

A new green kiwifruit and a red variety with edible skin are being hailed as “game changers” for the multimillion-dollar industry. Growers were offered taste tests of the cultivars, which have been in trials for 10-12 years, at the National Fieldays in Hamilton last week but Zespri is guarded about their release in the marketplace. Zespri would not say when the product would be taken to market if it proved commercially viable. The cultivars were in precommercial trials on small blocks around New Zealand. - APNZ

Hair suspension Two prominent Hawke’s Bay men with long hair support the suspension of a St John’s College student who refuses to cut his hair. The student’s parents spoke out on TVNZ’s Seven Sharp this week and have placed the school’s decision to suspend their son before the High Court. Napier National candidate Wayne Walford, known for his ponytail, said he agreed in principle with St John’s College student Lucan Battison’s suspension. “There was an opportunity for discussion that has clearly passed,” Mr Walford said. “They’ve gotta have rules. I do agree with it.” Hawke’s Bay regional councillor Tom Belford, who also sports a ponytail, said while he’d prefer to send his child to a school that was open-minded on the matter, “if there is a school rule, applied even-handedly, then you accept the rule as the price of entry”. - APNZ

Vetting just one measure

Two arrests for mugging

A law change aimed at improving the protection of children at risk of abuse or neglect, including stronger vetting of adults who work with children, has passed into law with broad support in Parliament. The Vulnerable Children Bill passed its final stage by 105 - 10 votes in Parliament on Wednesday afternoon after only the Green Party and Mana Party’s Hone Harawira voted against it. The bill is the centrepiece of the Government’s Children’s Action Plan - developed after Social Development Minister Paula Bennett’s White Paper

on Vulnerable Children. Its measures include changes to the law so that abusive or neglectful parents will have to prove they are safe if they wish to keep any further children they have. In the past, social agencies have had to to prove they were not fit parents to take a child from them. It also introduces greater screening of those who work with children for government and community agencies, and ban those with serious convictions from working closely with children. Ms Bennett said while no law could stop children being

abused, neglected or killed, the changes would ensure there were more checks on vulnerable children, greater vigilance of abusive parents, and support would be prioritised. The bill will also put legal responsibilities on the heads of five Government departments to ensure children identified as vulnerable get the support their require. Those departments are Health, Education, Social Development, Justice and Police. Ms Bennett said that was a critical change. “Every child in this country deserves good health, educa-

tion and welfare. Most parents provide that, but for those who can’t or won’t. government agencies must step in.” Labour’s social development spokeswoman Sue Moroney said the bill was a good start, but did little to address the main problem of abuse in the home. She said it was a wasted opportunity. “This bill deals with a proportion of this ugly problem that we have in New Zealand. Sadly, the vast majority of cases will be untouched by this bill. We’ve still got an awful lot of work to do.” - APNZ


Instructor keen to encourage women skiers Mt Hutt Ski Area instructor Jo Stern (pictured) will launch her 2014 Go Girls ski programme on Monday. The programme, run over six Mondays throughout the season, offers tuition, coffee and a debriefing session for women wanting to improve their skiing. “We are committed to helping women reach their full potential in an atmosphere that is fun, uplifting and motivating,” Mrs Stern said. “The programme is targeted for women who have skied for years, but for whatever reason are not skiing as much these days.” PHOTO SUPPLIED


Ashburton store identified as viable The cold winds of change that are blowing through the Postie Plus clothing chain appear to have by-passed Ashburton. While the company’s administrators have opted to close 12 of the company’s 82 stores, costing 64 jobs, Ashburton

is among the stores that have been identified as viable. Stores in Birkenhead, Bishopdale, Dannevirke, Gore, Mt Roskill, Papatoetoe, Rangiora, St Lukes, Sydenham, Te Kuiti and Westgate are set to close in early July.

The closures have shocked members of First Union with general secretary Robert Reid saying neither the employees nor the union had been advised a review of stores had been under way. No indication was given at

a creditors meeting last week that stores would be closed and jobs lost. While staff may have realised closures could happen at some stage, the announcement of so many closures had come as a shock for the union.

By Kurt Bayer & Morgan tait Police have detained two men they believe bashed, robbed and dumped an unconscious Kiwi hiker in Poland. Aucklander Gordon Johnson, 60, was lured into a car he believed was a private taxi while waiting for a bus in rural southern Poland. Its occupants bashed, robbed and left him two hours’ drive away across the border of Slovakia on Sunday. Yesterday, police chased two men suspected of stealing fuel from a gas station, local newspaper, Weekly Podhalanski reported. Local police say the men, a 25-year-old from Myslowice and a 36-year-old from Sosnowiec, are suspects in the assault and kidnapping of Mr Johnson. They were driving a red BMW – matching a description from Mr Johnson – when they were stopped by police, the paper reported. A spokesman for police in Zakopane is quoted as saying the men are also suspected of being behind two other robberies, on June 11 and 15. Mr Johnson’s partner, Coro Daniel, said he was left with a broken nose, a suspected fractured jaw, facial stitches and severe bruising. “It’s hideous, absolutely hideous,” she said. “I just want to get him the hell out of there.” Mr Johnson was unable to fly until he received medical clearance due to a concussion. “He was abducted across the border to another country and left for dead,” Ms Daniel said. “It was high up in the hills and it’s cold there, they took his clothing and everything. “Somehow he managed to get to the nearest farmhouse and the lady there phoned the police. It was a two-hour journey back to Poland.” Two men in the car took turns assaulting Mr Johnson despite his frequent offers of his wallet and money, Ms Daniel said. Mr Johnson had spent months teaching throughout Burma and Southeast Asia, and was enjoying some rest after a motorcycle accident in Thailand in March. Ms Daniel was due to meet Mr Johnson in Poland this month, but had to cancel the trip when her brother was diagnosed with cancer. “It’s so awful, it’s been a difficult time with all this stuff happening. It’s all pretty ghastly. “It should be a warning for people. He was just hiking in the hills ... it could have happened to anyone.” - APNZ

Labour needs to step up Stu Oldham



he Labour Party has some work to do if it is to get noticed for doing what it has to do to unseat the Government at this year’s election. With fewer than 100 days until the election, Labour should expect to be landing blows on the National Party – not the other way around. That’s how an election works: in part, the Government campaigns on what it has done and, in part, the opposition campaigns on the problems of the Government. That is why the storm in a teacup that is the Donghua Liu debacle should force Labour Party supporters to bury their heads in their hands. Leader David Cunliffe spent yesterday explaining why he had no recollection of his marginal association with the political donor Mr Liu. In the past, he has criticised several National politicians for their dealings with and support of Mr Liu, who is awaiting sentence on domestic violence charges. This week, it emerged his electorate office wrote a letter on behalf of Mr Liu in 2003, asking that Mr Liu be advised on how long his residency application would take. Earlier, Mr Cunliffe denied he knew him. Mr Cunliffe yesterday said it was much ado about nothing as television crews asked his caucus colleagues whether they supported their leader. The spotlight was off the Government and firmly on Labour for what, on the face of it, appears a classic case of exploiting a molehill. However, that molehill prompts the perception of a disorganised party whose expeditions – no matter how justified – lack rigour. In politics, it is best to be prepared for a fight. Labour should appear the Government in waiting, rattling confidence in the incumbent with well-researched – and difficult to parry – direct hits. That a poll that had the party at 23 per cent support landed at the same time as the latest Liu controversy suggests the party has to play catch up if it wants voters to hear its story.

have rolled my eyes so many times in the past week, that I have given myself a headache. My first headache came when I started hearing and reading all the backlash from the Dunedin security guard’s tackle on the streaker during the second test. His tackle may have been a bit excessive yes, but if you’re prepared to break the law you should be prepared for the consequences. I understand the streaker earned himself $500 from his mates, but will he do it again? I very much doubt it and if that’s the case then it’s a job well done by the guard. What exactly was the streaker doing standing still anyway? Streaking is the act of running naked through a public place as a prank, a dare or an act of protest. It is often associated with sporting events but can occur in more secluded areas. It usually involves running quickly which also reflects the original meaning of the word before it became associated with nudity. Streakers are often pursued by sporting officials or by the police. My second eye rollinginduced headache has arrived via the Football World Cup. I love most sports and soccer/ football is definitely up near the top of my favourite sports list. It is played by 250 million players in over 200 countries, making it the world’s most popular sport. “The beautiful game” I think is turning ugly. The constant “diving” continues to drive me nuts, but what really gets under my skin is the players’ total disrespect for the officials. If the finger waving and swearing wasn’t bad enough, now Cristiano Ronaldo is CHASING the referee to argue with him.

Second boat sinks Nine people are missing after a second Indonesia-bound boat sank off western Malaysia, as authorities search for 26 passengers unaccounted for after a similar incident a day earlier. The second boat, believed bound for the Indonesian island of Sumatra across the busy Malacca Strait, sank off Malaysia’s coast near the district of Sepang, south of the capital Kuala Lumpur, early yesterday.

King Felipe VI takes throne By DaviD Williams King Felipe VI has taken the Spanish crown, setting the stage for celebrations in the flag-festooned capital a day after his father quit the throne with tears in his eyes. The 46-year-old former Olympic yachtsman, who stands nearly two metres tall, assumed the crown after an emotional ceremony in the first royal succession of the postFranco era. Felipe legally became king at the stroke of midnight as an act of parliament signed by his father came into force, formalising the end of 76-year-old Juan Carlos’ 39-year reign. He faces a formidable chal-

lenge. As king, Felipe must restore the image of the monarchy after his father’s reign became bogged down in scandal; inspire a people grappling with a 26 per cent unemployment rate; and try to unite the nation even as the northeastern region of Catalonia seeks an independence referendum on November 9. Thousands of red and yellow Spanish flags fluttered through the city, bedecked with white flowers ready for the royal event, which is being secured by 7,000 police. Shops scrambled to sell tshirts and fridge magnets commemorating the new generation of royals. Even some Spaniards who

glumly sat in Madrid bars and watched their heroes crash out of the World Cup after losing 2-0 to Chile seemed ready to give the new monarch a chance. Joaquin Lamas, a 34-year-old salesman nursing a beer in the city centre’s Taberna del Gijon bar and bemoaning his misery at Spain’s performance, said he believed Felipe’s ascension to the throne was good news. “He is someone who will bring something to Spain. I don’t think of the king as a king but as an ambassador who represents Spain and as such I think he is trained and he will contribute,” Lamas said. The Spanish king’s elegant 41-year-old wife Letizia, a former television news presenter

and the granddaughter of a taxi driver, is now queen. The couple have two photogenic blonde-haired daughters: seven-year-old Sofia and eightyear-old Leonor who is the youngest heiress to the throne in Europe. Felipe will wear the red silk sash of the military forces’ captain general as he is sworn in and proclaimed king in parliament, which has been draped in a giant red canopy with the state coat of arms embroidered in gold. He is set to deliver a speech to MPs before being driven through Madrid with Queen Letizia, whose dress remains a closely guarded secret. - AFP


US executes third death row inmate in 24 hours Florida has put to death a convicted double killer, the third execution in 24 hours in the United States, amid a raging controversy over lethal injection methods. The flurry of executions brings a swift end to a sevenweek hiatus in executions in the US following a botched procedure in Oklahoma that left a death-row prisoner writhing in agony before he died. After getting clearance from the Supreme Court, Florida put to death John Henry, 63, who killed his wife and a five-yearold. Henry, on death row for three

decades, received a cocktail of medications, prisons spokeswoman Jessica Cary said. He was the 23rd inmate executed this year in the United States, which allows individual US states to decide if they will use capital punishment, and implement it if they choose it. On Tuesday and early on Wednesday one execution was carried out in Georgia and another in Missouri. Both - also by lethal injection - came after last-minute appeals were rejected by the US Supreme Court. In the first of them, Marcus Wellons, 58, convicted of

the 1989 kidnapping, rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl, was put to death shortly before midnight in the southern state of Georgia, a spokesman for the prison system said. In the second case, John Winfield, 43, convicted of killing two women, was executed in the central state of Missouri. They were the first since the bungled April 29 execution in Oklahoma that provoked accusations of torture. Clayton Lockett, a convicted killer and rapist, was put to death by lethal injection in a process that took 43 minutes, well over the usual time of a

little over 10 minutes. He was seen writhing in pain, bucking off the gurney and mumbling unintelligibly in a spectacle that drew widespread condemnation, even from President Barack Obama. Obama, who backs the death penalty for heinous crimes, condemned the incident as “deeply troubling.” He ordered Attorney General Eric Holder, who is seeking the death penalty in the Boston Marathon bombings case, to conduct a policy review of how the death penalty is applied in the United States. - AFP

The remains of 17 US service members lost in a 1952 military plane crash in Alaska have been recovered more than six decades later. Another 35 bodies are still missing and being sought at the remote crash site in the northwestern US state, the Department of Defense says in a statement. The C-124 Globemaster aircraft crashed on November 22, 1952 while en route from Washington state to Elmendorf Air Force Base in Alaska with 41 passengers and 11 crew on board. In June 2012, an Alaska National Guard helicopter spotted debris while training in the area west of Mount Gannett, and subsequent searches confirmed it was from the 1952 crash. - AFP

Workers ‘abducted’ Forty Indian construction workers have been abducted in violence-hit northern Iraq, the Indian foreign ministry says. The workers were taken from the region around Mosul, which has been overrun by militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a foreign ministry spokesman said. “We have not received any ransom calls yet,” Syed Akbaruddin said. “We are trying to get as much information as possible from anyone trying to give us information from the ground,” he said. “We don’t know where they are,” he added. The Times of India earlier reported that the workers mostly from Punjab state had been kidnapped by the militants during an evacuation of the Mosul area. - AFP

Death toll hits 337 The death toll in west Africa’s three-nation Ebola outbreak has risen to 337, the World Health Organisation says, making it the deadliest ever outbreak of the haemorrhagic fever. Fresh data from the UN health agency showed that the number of deaths in Guinea, the hardest-hit country, has reached 264, while 49 had died in Sierra Leone and 24 in Liberia. The new toll marks a more than 60-per cent hike since the WHO’s last figure on June 4, when it said 208 people had succumbed to the deadly virus. Including the deaths, 528 people across the three countries have contracted Ebola, one of the deadliest viruses known to man, the WHO said. Yet agency spokeswoman Fadela Chaib insisted the far higher number of cases did not mean the virus was spreading faster. - AFP

Qantas cuts Tasman flights By Grand Bradley

service. Qantas has been popular with corporate travellers, offering a business class cabin, while Jetstar is aimed at the leisure market and has no business class. Any reduction in competition could force up prices on the route, where about 1.2 million Australian tourists fly to New Zealand and 1.3 million Kiwis fly the other way each year. During the low season Qantas

capacity will drop by 12 per cent with all cancelled routes out of Auckland to Australia’s main eastern cities. The number of flights will fall to 82 a week during the low season. The decision to cut back on the Tasman follows an announcement by Qantas last month to freeze domestic capacity growth in Australia in the face of competition from Virgin Australia.

Bank of Australia (RBA), the Bank of England (BOE) and the US Federal Reserve (Fed) all releasing statements from their latest meetings. As was largely expected, the RBA held rates at 2.5 per cent. Given the economic outlook for Australia and the significant degree of monetary stimulus in place, it is likely that the RBA will continue to adopt an accommodative monetary policy for some time yet. BOE governor Mark Carney set tongues wagging last week with a surprise announcement saying interest rates could rise sooner that markets had expected. The BOE stayed on track though, voting unanimously to hold rates and to continue quantitative easing, but indicated in the minutes that rate rises could come before markets expected. According to the minutes there is fierce debate among the nine members of the Monetary Policy Committee around when rate rises should begin although this was dependent on inflation getting to its target range. The most important of the central bank announcements this week came from the Fed. As predicted, it trimmed its

bond purchasing program by a further $10 billion, the fifth consecutive taper this year. The forecasts and commentary were the focus for markets and economists as it gave a clear indication of when we could expect the first interest rate rise, likely to be next year. The central bank lowered its growth forecast for the year from close to 3.0 per cent down to between 2.1 per cent and 2.3 per cent. The downgrade stems from the severe winter weather the US saw in the first quarter of the year. The Fed remained positive on 2015, keeping its forecast growth rate of between 3.0 per cent and 3.2 per cent. Geo-political tension continues to weigh on investor sentiment with increasing violence in Iraq. As Sunni rebels continue violence, concerns increase that there may be disruption to oil supplies, forcing prices up. Projections from Wall Street suggest that the average for Brent crude could reach $US116 a barrel by the end of the year. In Europe concerns mounted that fresh conflict could break out between the Ukraine and Russia after Russia cut off the Ukraine’s gas supply when they refused to pay outstanding debts. There is concern that this may affect the gas supply to other areas in Europe as well. Jeremy Flood works for Craigs Investment Partners. This article should not be deemed as advice.

Bank decisions create caution arkets for the week were mixed with plenty of speculation around central bank decisions creating caution. The S&P 500 in the US hit yet another record after the Federal Reserve meeting was looked at favourably by investors. The FTSE100 in the UK was up immediately after its central bank minutes were released but eased off slightly ending the week flat. The biggest event this week for New Zealand was the release of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) data from the first quarter. Forecasts from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) were for 1.1% growth for the first three months of 2014, however, this was slightly higher than the actual figure of 1.0 per cent. Statistics New Zealand commented that this was the third consecutive quarter of growth of 1.0 per cent or more. The annual rate of growth was predicted to be 3.1 per cent but came in above expectations at 3.3 per cent. The growth is largely attributed to a pick up in the construction sector, particularly in the Canterbury region. The pick up is also supportive of the RBNZ’s commentary last week which said the economy’s expansion had “considerable momentum”. The NZX50 finished the week slightly up after the announcement. The week was filled with plenty of central bank announcements with the Reserve

equivalent Australian workers. Jetstar is believed to have even lower costs. As part of a global Qantas alliance with Emirates, the airlines’ better co-ordinated services was approved with minimum capacity conditions to ensure competition was maintained. Qantas says that after the changes announced yesterday the capacity requirements of regulators would be met. At the time New Zealand Transport Minister Gerry Brownlee approved the alliance he said he was confident that competition, cost savings along with capacity commitments would keep fares in check. Jetstar Australia and New Zealand chief executive David Hall said passengers who had booked on the Auckland-Adelaide service would be re-booked via Melbourne or Sydney. - APNZ


Qantas is cutting flights across the Tasman while its budget subsidiary Jetstar will fly more services on the cut-throat route where airline margins have traditionally been thin. The Qantas group, under financial pressure from intense domestic competition in Australia and suffering heavy longhaul losses, said the changes were designed to better reflect seasonal peaks and deliver a better mix of business and leisure services. A spokeswoman said there would be three fewer Qantas flights a week during the peak season and 15 fewer during the low season. The Qantas services will be cut from October and while Jetstar will add up to seven new services, it is quitting its three times a week Auckland-Adelaide

Qantas International chief executive Simon Hickey said the airline was “becoming more dynamic and more flexible” to respond to market conditions on Tasman routes. “This has seen us take advantage of seasonal opportunities, like the Perth to Auckland service we started last summer. On the flipside, we’ll reduce flights at times of the year when demand naturally drops back due to seasonal factors.” Hickey said trans-Tasman was “a really important corridor” for Qantas premium travellers. The Qantas spokeswoman said it was difficult to calculate the net impact on the number of seats given some new services could be started. Qantas runs its trans-Tasman flights with a New Zealandbased operation, Jetconnect, who crew eight Boeing 737-800s on the route and are paid less than

Cheese on the menu for Year 8s In Year 8 food technology we have been working in groups to create dishes that include cheese – such as cheese rolls, macaroni and cheese and cheese fondue. We have also been learning about cheese and cheese making. We had Sarah from Synlait visit our school and talk to some of the classes about the process of making cheese and the importation of dairy products. We have been learning about cheese because this term our food technology topic is cheese. Near the end of the term we created an ultimate cheese sandwich. First we had to create plans of how to make our cheese sandwich. Then we had to create names for our cheese sandwich and budget for it. Our budget was $20 per group, or if you desired you could split your group in half and get $10. By Ann Moriarty

How Evangline Chambers came to live in New Zealand During Term 1, Year 8 Ashburton Intermediate students conducted an inquiry study centred on the theme of Venturing into the Great Outdoors. I decided to focus my study on what the journey to New Zealand would have been like for our first European settlers. After completing my research on what the conditions were like for these early travellers I decided to present my information as a diary focusing on the experiences of the fictional character Evangeline Chambers. This is her story. 12 August 1840

My name is Evangeline Chambers and, gosh, am I nervous. I must be the first 15-year-old to ever travel to the new world alone. You see I’m alone because my family died just a few weeks ago, after we had arrived in Gravesend just hours after they caught the sweating sickness. I honestly do not know why God spared me and sometimes I wish he hadn’t. On a happier note they left everything to me, plus my ticket is already paid for, oh and I’m leaving tomorrow. Gosh I’m scared, what if I fall overboard? Or what if the ship sinks, I can’t swim. There are just too many

possibilities. At least I have you Diary. You were the last thing my mother gave me before she died. She wanted me to write all about our journey so I am going to honour her memory and confide in your pages until I reach my relatives in New Zealand. I have to go. Do not worry dear Diary I will write again soon, goodbye.

14 August 1840

We set out yesterday. The ship is called the London and weighs 700 tonnes. I am ever so confused as to how it floats. The captain is Henry Shuttleworth. The journey should take between 124 to 172 days so we should arrive sometime in December. I really hope I don’t get seasick as the weather is supposed to be absolutely wretched. 25 August 1840

My prayers were not answered. Today is the first time in a week I have been feeling well. I feel so alone. 30 August 1840

Sorry Diary you must forgive me for my handwriting. The ship is very bumpy and I am very embarrassed about my prose, but I have finally adjusted to ship life and we only have three more months left. 11 September 1840

I’m so excited to meet my relatives in New Zealand. I am

staying with my father’s sister, Louise, her husband Gideon and their children Blythe, Cora, Fredrick and Harrison. They live just out of Wellington which is where we are arriving. I’m so excited to meet Blythe, she is my age (15) and Fred is 12. They remind me so much of my sister Delia and my brother Arthur. It pains me to think of them now seeing they are dead, but I keep reminding myself that I must move on.

20 September 1840

I feel awful today. There is a frightful storm happening and it’s making me terribly seasick. 30 September 1840

Oh dear…I’m still crying as I write this. A three-day-old baby died today from diphtheria. It started an outbreak and five other people died. This is not the first time this has happened but it is the first time a baby has died. I hate this ship. Disease spreads like wildfire here! 16 October 1840

Oh Diary, I’m so sorry I haven’t written but I have found the most amazing man! His name is William King and I think I love him. He is 21 years old, very rich and very kind. He is so sweet and he gives me extra food. I am ever so happy. There has also been another healthy birth on board. Everything fi-

nally seems to be going right.

27 October 1840

Oh my William is so kind to me. He is so handsome with soft, blonde hair and twinkling chocolate eyes. Unfortunately another baby died today, this time from measles. Thankfully this time it was contained. 2 November 1840

There is going to be a terrible storm. We can see the black clouds coming. I am terribly frightened, but my dear William has promised to stay beside me the whole time. 10 November1840

The storm was terrible and a member of the crew actually got thrown overboard. It was frightful but thankfully no-one else was hurt. 15 November 1840

Dear Diary, I have made a new friend, the sister of the baby that died of diphtheria. Her name is Isabelle Baker and she is like my kindred spirit. She also keeps a diary and we have been practising poetry together – such fun. It is nice to talk to someone who understands me. Isabelle’s father died before they boarded and since then her mother and baby brother have died. 25 November 1840

William has asked to marry me! Oh this is the happiest day of my

life! I said yes but we must make sure my uncle gives his consent since I am only 15. I very much hope he approves.

10 December 1840

A fourth baby has died and a sixth was born healthy since I last wrote. We should be arriving at Port Nicholson in a few days according to Captain Henry. 14 December 1840

We arrived in Wellington two days ago and William and I talked to uncle and he gave us his consent. We were so relieved. William already owns land here. We shall be married in February after we get the farm up and running. Oh dear Diary, this will be the last time I shall be writing. The journey is over and I’m definitely ready to just settle down and live out the rest of my life. PROLOGUE

Evangeline Chambers became Evangeline King on the 14 February 1850. She and William lived a happy life on their small farm and had three sons, Arthur (in memory of her brother), Richard and Edward. She also had two daughters, Isabelle (in memory of her kindred spirit Isabelle Baker) and Evelyn. Evangeline died at the age of 56 from tuberculosis. By Jemma Donnelly 8/6

Fire Phone offers ‘something different’ By Ryan nakashima and anick Jesdanun There are two ways to view the smartphone Amazon introduced to the world: It’s either the latest in a long line of indistinguishable devices or a magic wand for shopaholics. The phone’s most significant feature, called Firefly, employs audio and object recognition technology to identify products and present the user with ways to purchase the items through Amazon. Users can simply snap a photo of a book, for instance, and Firefly will offer up its title and author, give more information about it and provide ways to buy it through Amazon with a single click. Seven years after Apple’s iPhone took over the category, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos believes there is room in the market for something different. Even with the dominant leads that Apple and Samsung hold, Bezos said, “it’s still early” in the wireless device business. People change phones all the time, he said. It’s not about taking market share right away, but making a phone that is ideal for a certain customer and hoping it takes hold. “We wanted to make a device that’s great for one person,” Bezos said. “It’s like a certain person likes chocolate and another person likes vanilla. The customer can choose.” While the new Fire Phone comes with some features that are practically industry standard — like a slim profile, a sturdy glass touchscreen, minimalist buttons and one camera for facing toward and away from the user— it breaks new ground in other areas. The phone’s Firefly object recognition feature can identify items and product names captured with the device’s camera.


Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos introduces the new Amazon Fire Phone yesterday in Seattle.

It can also pull in useful information such as phone numbers, website addresses. The company has catalogued more than a hundred million items that Firefly can recognise and has tweaked the technology to recognise words and characters in a variety of real-life situations. Another feature, called “dynamic perspective,” uses four infrared, front-facing cameras that tell the phone where the user’s face and eyes are located. The feature adjusts the user interface so that tilting the screen relative to the viewer’s face can toggle through screens, scroll through websites, make online video game characters fly up or down, and render buildings and other custom-made art in 3-D. The entry-level Fire phone, introduced this week, costs $199

with a two-year AT&T contract, which places it at the high end of smartphone pricing. But the phone comes with 32 gigabytes of memory, double the standard 16 GB. It also comes with 12 months of Amazon Prime, the company’s free shipping, video, music and book subscription plan, which normally costs $99 a year. “This is a very aggressive price point for a premium phone,” Bezos said. The new device fits with Amazon’s broader aim to create a more efficient shopping experience while steering more consumers to its retail products. “It goes back to the mission of Amazon, which is to sell you stuff,” said Ramon Llamas of the research firm IDC. “It reduces the number of

THE STORY SO FAR Big changes sure are exciting, and we’ve made more than a few in the last wee while – things like our free 4G upgrade and Ultra Fibre roll out, $10 data roaming, 29 nationwide Business Hubs, free WiFi in nearly 1000 spots, and our fresh new colours. You can count on even more as we continue on our journey with you toward a bright and exciting future.

WHY THE NAME CHANGE? Because that’s where we’re headed, we think it’s time we changed our name. So later this year, we’re changing it to Spark. But what’s not changing are your plan details and services – they’ll stay as is. That’s right, you don’t need to do a thing.


steps it takes to buy things on the phone.” Fire also comes with a 4.7inch screen, suitable for using with one hand, and earbuds with flat cords and magnets that are designed to eliminate tangles. Persuading consumers to buy the Fire over an iPhone or Samsung phone will be tough, analysts say, particularly because Amazon isn’t offering price breaks the way it has with Kindle tablets. And sophisticated technology such as 3-D will appeal primarily to early adopters of technology. “The technology’s cool, but consumers don’t buy technology,” said Julie Ask, an analyst at Forrester Research. “We buy solutions. We buy services. We pay for things that make our lives easier.”

Charles Golvin, founder of Abelian Research, believes the phone will appeal mostly to people who already use Amazon services heavily. “Any loyalist of iPhones or Google is going to have to judge whether there’s enough value in what Amazon is offering with Fire to make the transition,” he said. Samsung and Apple dominate worldwide smartphone sales with a combined 46 per cent share, according to IDC. And in the US, Apple leads with more than 37 per cent, with Samsung at nearly 29 per cent. Amazon could succeed even if it doesn’t steal market share from the top phone makers. Michael Scanlon, managing director with John Hancock Asset Management, said success will be measured by whether Amazon can increase loyalty among its Amazon Prime members and get them to boost purchases. Amazon is giving Fire owners a free year of membership, which normally costs $99, and existing subscribers an extra 12 months of membership. Prime offers free two-day shipping, encouraging impulse purchases. It also offers free access to some movies, TV shows, music and books and could encourage consumers to buy additional content, once they are used to the offerings. Meanwhile, Firefly could encourage more purchases. The feature lets you snap bar codes, phone numbers and more. It can even direct you to facts and data, such as a Wikipedia entry with information about a painting you snapped. It listens to songs, TV shows and movies and can pull up extra info like lyrics, actor bios and other information through its IMDb database. The phone will be available in July in the US exclusively through AT&T. - AP

In brief


ABs can match feat - Kirton By James Ihaka An ex-All Black who played a part in a record-setting winning streak reckons today’s team have a good chance of matching the feat when they play England in front of a packed Waikato Stadium tomorrow. New Zealand’s 28-27 win over the tourists in the second test at Dunedin last Saturday was their 16th in a row and has them positioned one short of the 17-win record. That number has been reached just twice before – by the All Blacks’ 1965-69 predecessors and the Springboks of 1997-98. Former All Black first-five Earl Kirton, one of the ‘65-’69 players, says he has been impressed by the English but believes the loss of injured firstfive Owen Farrell may prove difficult for the tourists to over-


Earl Kirton

come. “I thought Farrell was outstanding last Saturday, he took the ball to the line, he was tough as hell, he tackles ... he’s an excellent fly half and the fact that they will have to go back to Cipriani, he’s not the same – the All Blacks may even attack him.” Kirton, also a former All

Black selector, scored a try on his test debut in 1967 against England in London as part of the Fred Allen-coached team. Kirton said his side played a different style of rugby from today’s All Blacks but there were similarities. “The forwards we had in that era with the Meads, the Lochores, the Tremains and the Nathans were years ahead of their time – they were like these modern-day forwards, who were really tremendous ball players – I mean Pinetree [Colin Meads] could spiral punt with his left foot. We had good scrum halves, too, who gave us plenty of space.” When asked about the record his side had set, Kirton said it was something the team back then never thought about. “We were just brilliantly coached and brilliantly captained and we didn’t have such a defensive attitude as these

modern players do _ but we did pursue excellence and we tried to play an expansive game.” The All Blacks will get their chance to match the record in Hamilton, where they suffered their last home loss in 2009 – 32-29 to the Springboks. It will be the first time the All Blacks have played England in Hamilton. Waikato Stadium sold out early last week with 25,000 fans expected at the match. Accommodation in Hamilton is also at a premium with Waikato Motel Association committee member Dave Smith saying rooms in the city “always sell out when the All Blacks are in town”. Waikato Rugby Union operations manager Bill Heslop said the England under-20 side, due to meet South Africa in tonight’s Junior World Championship final in Auckland, are expected to be in the grandstands.  - APNZ

Rakaia and Methven will take their frustrations out on each other tomorrow for not making the Combined Country Cup rugby final. Waihora host Lincoln in the final at Tai Tapu after advancing past Methven and Rakaia respectively in last week’s semifinals, leaving the two Mid Canterbury sides to battle it out in the non-event third place playoff. The two sides played out a 17-all draw in the opening round of the competition and went into last weekend hoping to come across one-another this weekend – but under different circumstances involving a cup. Instead, Lincoln play in their seventh final in eight years, chasing a third title while Waihora play on home turf in their first combined final. Southbridge, featuring a second appearance from Dan Carter, host Burnham-Dunsandel in the play-off for fifth while Glenmark are at home to Darfield for seventh. Celtic can claim the Canterbury Supporters’ Trophy against Saracens, a side they lost to 10-36 in Rangiora three weeks ago. In the plate Southern and Hampstead go head-to-head in a ‘nothing game’, with a rematch in the Watters Cup in three weeks’ time.

The Mid Canterbury Women have already done enough to win Mainland Football women’s division two before they host rivals Christchurch United at the Ashburton Domain on Sunday. The unbeaten Mid Canterbury hold a four-point lead atop the standings from Christchurch United, but will be out to finish the league season with an unblemished record – with only a 1-all draw with Western the only time they haven’t tasted victory in

the 10 rounds to date. Christchurch United were their main rivals until backto-back losses saw them fall behind Mid Canterbury, and they now have a chance to spoil the league champion’s party and, having scored a whopping 53 goals, the Mid Canterbury defence will need to be on their toes. On Saturday the men’s sides will chase some wins after a lean few weeks. In division four Mid Canterbury Eastern are at home to the third-placed FC Twenty11 Falcons while Methven

are away to the top-of-thetable FC Twenty11 Thunder Panthers. The Mid Canterbury Masters are looking to break a three-game losing skid when they host FC Twenty11 Rebels on Saturday. The three losses have seen Mid Canterbury fall outside the top 10, to be 12th out of the 24 teams in the grading with two weeks to play. Mid Canterbury 18th are away to St Andrew’s 1st XI, 16th have the bye and the 15th grade side are away to FC Twenty11B.


Convincing win for College girls By Jonathan Leask

The Ashburton College girls’ 1st XV continued their strong season with a convincing 34-7 win over Craighead in Pleasant Point on Wednesday night. In the first round Craighead had been the toughest test for College, with the 46-36 win easily the closest contest by 22 points, but the second round rematch had college claim a more convincing win. The strength of the forwards led to the first two tries to Riley Claydon-Wade and Nicole Purdom. Purdom then scored the third try from an interception

Premier netball Methven are staring down relegation from Premier for the second time this netball season. In tomorrow’s fourth week of the second round, the 2013 runnersup clash with Collegiate in what shapes as the relegation play-off match. Methven had to see off College B in similar circumstances in the first round waltzing into the second round on the back of a 5113 win. They have performed much better in the second round but are still without a win and Collegiate have proved competitive since stepping up from Senior A. Hampstead A claimed their first win of the second round and will look to go back-to-back against a wounded Celtic that suffered their first defeat since the 2012 premier final when they went down to College A last week. College are taking aim at finishing the round unbeaten with United A their next obstacle. In Senior A, College B are on track to return to premier, with three wins from the three rounds to date, but that could come undone against rivals Rakaia, who suffered a loss to College Y10A last week.

which was converted by Naomi Cone. Emma Waite made a run from halfway down the right wing to score the fourth try of the first half for a 22-0 lead. College’s domination continued in the second half with the forwards as Chloe Te Moananui extend the lead. Purdom turned provider, fending off several defenders before passing to Kate Arnold who also evaded three tackles to score and Cone converted for a 34-0 lead. Craighead’s left wing, Elizabeth Hampton, then ran in a long-range consolation try which was converted.

Back on deck The Ashburton College boys’ 1st XV will welcome back several players from the casualty ward for their clash with Christ’s College in the Crusaders Secondary Schools’ rugby competition in Christchurch tomorrow. An injury-ravaged Ashburton put up a spirited effort against St Bedes before fading late but should be bolstered by the return of players for a key clash between two sides poised just outside the top eight after eight rounds.

Mid Canterbury’s Mark Jackman has had his introduction delayed in the deep south. The new Southland rugby recruit was scheduled to make his first appearance for new club Blues tomorrow in the Southland premier club match against Star, however, he picked up an injury in his final outing for High School old Boys’ in the Christchurch Metro competition last weekend. With just three games left in the season and the Blues out of the semi-finals, it was hoped Jackman would get at least one run for his new club as he pushes for a starting berth in the Stags.

Women do battle The two women’s teams are the only ones on the turf in the Mid-South Canterbury hockey competition this weekend. Hampstead will meet Craighead at the earlier time of 2pm in Ashburton tomorrow. Top-of-thetable Hampstead had last weekend off last week, collecting the points from a default by Timaru Girls’ High. The other secondary school side from Timaru are the only team to have beaten Hampstead this season, taking a 1-0 in Timaru on May 10. It will be Craighead’s second trip to Ashburton in as many weeks after losing to Hampstead-Collegians last week 2-1. After the joy of claiming their first win, Hampstead-Collegians head to Timaru with renewed confidence to face defending champions St Andrews. They will be intent on improving on the 3-0 loss in the first round. In the men’s competition Wakanui Black and Wakanui Blue deferred their game to Thursday night. Defending champions Black took out round one 3-0 and will be out to continue their unbeaten season.

Socceroos ‘set new benchmark’ By Steve Larkin Heartbroken but intensely proud, Ange Postecoglou says his Socceroos have set a benchmark that can help them become a feared attacking force in world football. But that doesn’t ease the pain of defeat to the Netherlands and a World Cup campaign ended at the group stage. “It’s a heartbreaker mate,” said Postecoglou after the Socceroos mostly dominated the Dutch, but lost 3-2 in a World Cup classic in Porto Alegre. The defeat, and Chile’s subsequent triumph against Spain, consigns Australia to departing Brazil after their final group match against also-ousted Spain next week. Talisman Tim Cahill, who struck an all-time screamer of a goal, will miss that game through suspension. He copped his second yellow card of the tournament, yet ends his World Cup career after scoring a dazzling volley many were calling the goal of the tournament. “At home in my garden I score like that every day but this is what’s it’s all about,” Cahill said. “Football is all about these moments. And what better place

to do it that in the home of football in Brazil.” Cahill’s mercurial moment came as the unfancied Australians, the lowest-ranked nation in Brazil, almost pulled off one of the great World Cup heists, dominating and leading 2-1 against the team that had thrashed reigning champions Spain 5-1. “We did everything we needed to do today bar win the game,” Postecoglou said after the thriller yesterday. “That has got to be our benchmark moving forward.” Postecoglou refused to blame goalkeeper Mat Ryan for a gaffe which gifted the Dutch the match-winning goal; nor Mathew Leckie for failing to nod in a close-range header seconds earlier. “It’s nobody’s fault. We win as a team, we lose as a team,” he said. Postecoglou said the inspired display, coming after a tournament-opening 1-3 loss to Chile, evidenced his mission to make the Socceroos a serious player in the world game was on track. “People were saying we weren’t going to score a goal and we would just try and survive,” he said. “In both games we have taken

it to the opposition. “I firmly believe that we have only just started on this journey. “The goal is to come back in four year’s time, that they fear us before we get on the pitch as much as they fear us on the pitch now. “There is no doubt now both Chile and the Dutch know they have been in a game and respect the way we have gone about our football.” Winning respect is one thing; winning games is another. “We don’t want to come to World Cups as outsiders,” Postecoglou said. “We don’t want to come to World Cups defending for our lives. “This is our third World Cup in a row and our fourth overall. Every time we come here, we should be getting stronger. “And I don’t want to be in this position in four year’s time, where people are writing us off.” Dutch coach Louis van Gaal certainly won’t be, heaping praise on Postecoglou and the “fanatical” approach of the Australians. “Australia is a tough game, a tough team to play against, well organised,” van Gaal said. “This coach (Postecoglou) is really good. He allows his team to play an attacking game.” - AAP

Sampaoli lauds red-hot Chile after victory By ChriS Wright Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli has lauded his side after they dumped reigning champions Spain out of the World Cup to motor into the last 16 on the back of a deserved 2-0 triumph in Rio. Spain came in on the ropes after suffering a 5-1 battering by the Netherlands and Chile delivered the knockout punch in some style to ensure they and the Dutch will compete in the next phase. “I am proud of the way Chile put out world champions,” said Sampaoli. “It was a great win over great rivals. “Against the Dutch we must now make a similar effort and hit these heights again - we want to finish first in the group,” added the Argentinian-born coach, who knows his side are likely

best victory is always the next one. “But I think it’s unlikely I shall ever forget this win,” he told reporters as he savoured a success adding to an opening 3-1 in over Australia. “We showed great courage with the way we played and so you can say we are the rebels of this event,” said the 54-year-old. Sampaoli, who took the reins of the Chileans in 2012, said it was too early to say if his charges can go all the way at the finals. “I am not thinking about Chile as world champions. There are many good teams here and we shall see.” A football fan holds his hands to his head as he watches the But he added the dedication World Cup match between Chile and Spain inside the FIFA Fan his players have shown to the Fest area on Copacabana beach, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, yesWAT cause augured well. terday.

just returned from a knee surgery he underwent last month. “Vidal had some problems with his leg these past days and gave a very intensive performance and that’s difficult to do when you are constantly in pain.” Vargas struck on 20 minutes and Charles Aranguiz added the coup de grace for the Chileans as Spain’s stars went home with their tails between their legs. Sampaoli had guided his side through a strong second half of the Latin American qualifying campaign after replacing Claudio Borghi at the end of 2012. But he insisted that in Brazil, his team have looked better than ever. “Today, we played with a system and an idea. The players believe in the idea and they defend it.” - AFP

Kiwi flavour in Porto Alegre


orto Alegre is the southern most World Cup venue in Brazil, and a long way from home, but still has a distinct Kiwi flavour. According to Google, the Estadio Beira Rio where the Netherlands played Australia yesterday is 11,167km from Auckland, but strangely enough it offers a remarkable slice of Kiwiana. It already starts at breakfast where the Wellington Phoenix shirt looks out of place between the Dutch and Australian strips. The owner turns out to be Paul Guthrie from Wellington, but who now lives in Melbourne and follows the Soc-

Coen Lammers


ceroos with his young son. “I just can’t get myself to wear an Australian shirt,’’ the expat Kiwi grins. “The yellow in the Phoenix strip is as close as I will get.” Getting out of the car at the stadium, I am dumbfounded to see a picture of a silver fern and a New Zealand flag staring at me, sitting alongside a licence plate for the local munici-

pality. The mind boggles how a Kiwi ended up in this southern port city, but my thoughts are drawn towards the familiar big grin of Gordon Glen Watson. Gordon, a lad from Palmerston North, works for Oceania Football Federation in Auckland and works at the World Cup as a floating Fifa media officer. As we are waiting for the Australian press conference to begin, another recognisable face waves from across the room. Four years after earning the plaudits of being the only undefeated coach at the 2010 World Cup, Ricki Herbert is back on the big stage, this time wearing the blue Fifa suit as part of

Fifa’s Technical Study Group. Along with 12 other former national coaches, he studies and reports on the tactical innovations. During the captain’s run, Herbert watches the Socceroos go through their paces from the sideline. In the stands, New Zealand journalist Ben Stanley of the Sunday Star Times is also enjoying the view. Stanley is on a sabbatical for a year, travelling between major events as part of the ultimate OE for a sports junkie. Another New Zealander, photographer William West, is also at the ground, snapping the match for an international

agency, while Kiwi expat Michael Cockerill is tapping out another column for the Sydney Morning Herald. Cockerill has had a distinguished career in Australian papers and Fox TV, but he is proud of his Canterbury roots where he started his career at the Christchurch Star. Gordon Glen Watson says it’s a pity referee Peter O’Leary and assistant referee Jan Hendrik Hintz are no longer in Porto Alegre, after being reserve officials for the France-Honduras game here earlier in the week. The All Whites didn’t qualify but we still seem to be able to field a New Zealand XI.

All Blacks want Cory Jane back BY GREGOR PAUL The challenge set for Cory Jane tomorrow isn’t overly complicated – he’s been asked to be Cory Jane. The real Cory Jane that is: the one that confounds opponents. The one that is miraculously gifted and effective. The big Cory Jane fend needs to make a welcome return as does his water-tight handling and ludicrous ability to beat defenders. That Cory Jane hasn’t been seen since 2012 when he was the

best wing in world rugby. The All Blacks want him back. They understand that a serious knee injury took away the player they knew last year. Why he’s not yet back this year – they are not so sure. The best theory is that he’s been trying to do too much: that he is feeling the need to prove himself all over again. That’s understandable – while Jane hobbled around last year, Ben Smith ensured that the man wearing the All Black No 14 jersey was still considered the best wing in

the world game. “I just want him to trust himself,” was All Black coach Steve Hansen’s message for Jane. “I think he is trying too hard. We have had a bit of a chat about that. He’s come back from that ankle injury and just hasn’t been the Cory Jane we know he can be. There is nothing wrong with his ankle, it is just him feeling a bit of that pressure and we have tried to alleviate that for him, clear his head and told him to get out there and enjoy it and be the athlete he can be.”

Jane welcomed that assessment and agreed with it. But it wasn’t news to him. He had drawn the same conclusions after a busy yet strangely inaccurate performance in Dunedin. Jane was here, there and everywhere in Dunedin but that only drew attention to his high error rate. In the first half he dropped the ball four times. It’s unlikely he dropped the ball four times in the whole of 2011 and 2014 combined. “I was disappointed that I dropped the ball so many times,”

said Jane. “I managed to pull it back a little bit in the second half. If I hadn’t turned the ball over I didn’t think I would have had a bad game because I was told during that week to bring the energy and I was all over the field. Patience is going to be his weapon of choice in Hamilton. He’ll bide his time. Jane is rugby’s equivalent to the lone striker in football: he can wait, wait and wait and when a half or quarter chance presents, he takes it. - APNZ

Queensland laugh off call for change BY LAINE CLARK Fiercely loyal Queensland coach Mal Meninga has laughed off a suggestion it’s time to inject new blood into his side after NSW finally ended their State of Origin dynasty. And Maroons captain Cameron Smith went one step further, saying it would be “outrageous” for Queensland to show their veterans the door in the wake of Wednesday night’s 6-4 Origin II loss in Sydney. Smith quickly saw the vultures circling for a team boasting six players in their 30s after NSW clinched their first series win since 2005. “I think there will be a few people south of the border asking questions about the make-up of our team in the future,” he said. “But to lose a series once in nine years and then want to break up the side is outrageous. “I might be biased but I believe this will be the greatest Queensland side if not rugby league side that has ever played the game. “I don’t see the need to change the team at all.” Meninga then interjected: “We won’t do that, that’s not who we are. “What they have achieved over the years has been fantastic and probably will never be repeated again. “When you look at the annals of history a lot of these players will be deemed greats of the game. “I feel privileged to have worked with this great group of men.” Queensland may be reluctant for change but more injuries will force it for Origin III in three weeks after veteran winger Brent Tate (knee) and Matt Scott (facial fracture) went down. Tate is contemplating his future after reportedly confirming he had suffered his fourth serious knee injury of his career. It added to Queensland’s mounting injury list for the series which already included Cooper Cronk (broken arm), Josh Papalii (ankle) and Corey Parker (facial fracture). And Daly Cherry-Evans (knee), Greg Inglis (ankle) and Billy Slater (shoulder) only played on Wednesday night after passing late fitness tests.

Still, Meninga said he felt they were “minutes away from one of their greatest wins” before NSW halfback Trent Hodkinson ‘s try and conversion in the 72nd minute snatched a rare Blues series triumph. “That is a fair observation. These boys tried their hearts out but didn’t get the result,” he said. “I am just so proud of these players. We are not wallowing in self pity. “It’s not the end of the world, we will live to fight another day.” While admitting he was a “bit confused” about what to feel at fulltime, Queensland prop Nate Myles was certain there was still plenty of life left in the old Maroon dog yet. “I think our old boilers as they are now called are doing a pretty good job but that’s up to Mal,” he said. Johnathan Thurston was more forthright. “Just because we lost a series, it doesn’t define who we are,” he said. “This has been the greatest side I have been a part of. I feel blessed.” - AAP

YOUR STARS by Forecasters

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20) With some specially intuitive and imaginative influences in play, you’re able to look at things objectively and also trust your gut. TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21) With the doors open to new encounters and second chances, follow hunches that can put you in the right place at the right time. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 22) Today is the last full day of your birthday month, giving you an unparalleled sense of where you’ve been and where you’re going. CANCER (JUNE 22 – JULY 24) The door to the future is made of glass, giving you a clear sense of where you’ve been and where you’re going and of what needs to be left behind. LEO (JULY 24 – AUG 23) Knowing what you do and don’t want from your alliance with others is equally important when it comes to defining what you need moving forward. VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 23) A mix of hindsight and foresight, intellectual savvy and transparency, is perfect for wrapping up your annual professional review. LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 23) Make the most of the Sun’s last full day in an adventurous part of your chart while also giving your relationships some extra attention. SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) A smart head for money, foresight and hindsight reveals all the different shades of grey, asking that you keep your mind and options open. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) The love gods are ensuring the Sun’s last full day in your relationship sector counts, softening the edges of what can be some fairly severe wakeup calls. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) While work and relationship matters remain as important now as they did at the start of the week, your approach has to shift over time. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) Make the most of the Sun’s last full day in a playful part of your chart, finding a balance between work and play while you can. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 21) The focus not so much shifts back to home and family matters today, because it’s been here all week, but in a more dominant way today.

King bound for France BY STEVE HEPBURN Highlander Chris King does not know if he ever got near the All Blacks. But he says he would not have had it any other way. Mid Canterbury’s King, 33, has signed a contract to head to French club Montepellier, saying simply the timing was right after more than a decade of playing first-class rugby in New Zealand. “I think I have been here for 13 years playing rugby, and down here for 10 years, and it was just a different challenge for me. Something me and the family could do. Go and see the rest of the world,’’ he said. “I have been to Africa 14 times and the chance to live on the

edge of the Mediterranean does not come along that often. For me, it was good timing. “I have had the opportunities to go to other places over the years but the timing has not been quite right. I’ve played enough time here so this is the next stage of life, really.’’ King will join up with a former tight forward mate, Tom Donnelly, and an old flatmate, Anthony Tuitavake, who were all together in the Highlanders in 2005. King heads to France in August and said it was a deal which came about quickly. “I talked to the wife [Emma] and she was pretty keen to go. She’d just started work again and as she was getting ready to

go to work on Monday I said, ‘Are you keen to go to the south of France?’ In the end, it was a pretty quick decision. But one I’m pretty happy with.’’ He has signed a one-year deal with Montpellier and envisages playing for a couple more years. King has been one of the most versatile props in New Zealand rugby but has never got a national call-up. “Everyone has a childhood dream of wanting to play for the All Blacks. That has never eventuated for me. But I leave the country with no regrets, really. You could have been an injury away but you never know.’’ He expects French rugby to be more brutal and physical than in New Zealand and the scrum-

maging to be tough. King, who has two daughters, Chloe, 5, and Alexis, five months, has played more than 100 games for the Highlanders and still has this season to complete, hoping to make the playoffs for the first time. “Hopefully we can carry on. It we beat the Chiefs next week that’ll put us in the hunt for the semi-finals. We have chipped away and at times we haven’t played as well as we should have. “This year we are starting to perform and as long as we can continue that we’ll be there or thereabouts.’’ King will play half a game tonight for the Highlanders against the New Zealand Barbarians. - ODT

Dampney in Barbarians The New Zealand Barbarians feature Ashburton Trust Mid Canterbury captain Jon Dampney in the squad of 25 players for the match against the Highlanders in Invercargill at 6.30pm tonight. The team is coached by Southland Stags head coach Brad Mooar, and is made up of 10 Southland players, three Highlanders squad members, six players from the remainder of the South Island, two players from the North Island including Rico Gear and three Japanese players from the club Panasonic.
