College forced to postpone school ball Snow stays away but flooding aplenty More schools closed, others to stay open By Myles Hume
Horrendous weather has cast question marks over the closure of Mid Canterbury schools today, while several others decided last night they would not open. Ashburton College, Rakaia and Wakanui Schools, confirmed yesterday afternoon they would not open today due to flooding. The Methven Area Bus Group cancelled its runs last night, meaning Mount Hutt College, Our Lady of the Snows, Methven Primary and Lauriston School would remain closed for a sec-
Ashburton College has made “the extremely hard decision” to postpone its ball and after-party, causing widespread disruption for pupils and local businesses. In a letter distributed to year 12 and 13 pupils yesterday afternoon the college said they were “concerned about road conditions late at night with ice, flooding and/or snow being hazards that could affect people’s safety”. Deputy principal Helen ShoreTaylor said it was the first time the college had to postpone the ball, which now scheduled for July 12, also the last day of term. “It’s been an extremely hard decision to make, but we had a couple of people flying in from Australia, coming in from Mount Hutt College, Timaru Boys’ and Geraldine. “We don’t know what the weather is going to do with snow or flooding which could turn to ice.” The Metservice has forecasted sleety showers and a high of 5 degrees Celsius for Ashburton. The last time snow fell on the day of the Ashburton College ball is believed to have been in 2002, and the ball still went ahead. Ms Shore-Taylor said the college decided to postpone the ball and after-ball yesterday to give businesses and pupils time to change or cancel arrangements. Madison Hair studio senior stylist Justine McCormick said they had 13 appointments for this afternoon,
but the diary was now empty. “But with a bit of ringing around and a few changes we have moved them all to the 12th of July,” she said. DNA Hairdressing Ashburton also had a significant number of bookings planned for this afternoon. The studio’s senior stylist Kelly Reeves said they had moved all bookings for today forward to the new ball date. She said, fortunately, not many girls already had their hair styled. Denise Hydes, from Flowers and Balloons Ashburton, had spent a significant amount of time creating orders of corsages and button holes for ball-goers, as well as decorations for the enchanted ball theme. She said it was unfortunate the ball had been postponed but understood why. The company would honour its orders, meaning pupils would not have to make further payments. Hotel Ashburton was expecting to host 400 people for the ball, but the function room would be empty tonight. “Considering the weather conditions it’s not surprising, we were prepared for that to happen just with the weather forecast there was always that risk,” Hotel Ashburton general manager Paul Inwood said. “We had bought food for the occasion but none of that will go to waste.” He said cancellation fees were charged on a case-by-case basis, but since the college was postponing it would not have to pay any charge.
A good day for ducks

While animals and humans sought shelter during yesterday’s freezing conditions, these ducks took advantage of the roadside flooding to do a spot of sightseeing on Beach Road.
in many areas, particularly in the roads leading to Wakanui School. “Yesterday was a logistical nightmare, it’s been awful, some of the buses couldn’t go on their normal routes because of flooding. The water was up around the hubs in some places and the brakes don’t work in that case. “In regards of what it has been like today and what’s been forecasted, it isn’t going to clear, my gut’s telling me no. “It’s a safety issue for the kids on the buses, you can say it’s easy to go through water but you don’t know what’s underneath it.” Ashburton College principal
Grant McMillan said the gates would remain closed today due to flooding and ceiling leaks in classrooms combined with trying road conditions which would make it difficult for pupils to get to and from college. “It’s about looking at what’s the safest and most sensible decision ... we are absolutely aware that closing schools can be really disruptive but we have tried to minimise that by making the decision early,” Mr McMillan said. Other schools around the district, particularly in urban Ashburton, were due to make a decision this morning.
Traffic making waves on one of Ashburton’s badly flooded roads. By Sue Newman The legacy of this week’s biting southerly storm is being felt in many parts of the Ashburton District as flood water rather than snow. While Ashburton received about two centimetres of snow in the early hours of Thursday morning, driving rain soon turned that snow to slush. Towards Methven, however, it was a different story with snow increasing in depth above Blands corner on the Methven Highway and continuing to fall for most of the day. Methven had received about 12 centimetres of snow by late morning when falling snow became intermittent rain. For farmers the snow meant an early start to feed-out stock, but with good reserves of dry feed on hand, that was just another, albeit chilly, chore. For Duncan Humm that meant two missions into snow covered paddocks yesterday with silage and nuts for 2000 sheep. He farms at Mt Somers and before heading down country to Springfield he’d made an early start feeding out to his deer.

ond day in a row today. Last night Pearsons Coachlines, which provides transport for at least 12 of the district’s schools, was still undecided over cancelling its routes, with manager Mark Cook “leaning heavily towards saying no”. Mayfield and Mt SomersSpringburn Schools closed yesterday but would make a decision on reopening this morning. Dorie School is currently opening at 10am, but there was the possibility it could close. Mr Cook said several of the bus routes were ”borderline” yesterday, with deep surface flooding
Check out our video “We’re not concerned at the moment. We’re pretty well prepared. No time’s a good time for this but whenever these conditions are forecast you go through the same procedure,” he said. Snow was ankle deep at Springfield mid morning yesterday, but when he left Mt Somers, Mr Humm said that area seemed to have escaped the worst of the wintry blast. “It doesn’t take us long to feed out – as long as we can get the gate open.” Around Ashburton, two days of heavy rain and overnight snow

produced more water than the town’s stormwater system could handle with streets and properties flooding in many parts of town. For some Grove Street residents there was the triple whammy of an overloaded stormwater system, Carters Creek running too high to take run-off from land and paddocks at the rear of their properties flooding. Several found when daylight arrived yesterday that their back lawns and in some cases their garages were awash. A stretch of State Highway One near Grahams Road was flooded across the western side, forcing northbound traffic to choose between dodging traffic islands and oncoming traffic or creating huge water sprays. There were also several stretches of flooding on the highway north of Ashburton and on many rural roads. The Ashburton District Council’s emergency management team were in a state of readiness throughout the day, keeping one eye on the flooded streets and the other on weather predictions for today. Anticipating a big snowfall overnight, the council had deployed
heavy machinery to strategic points around the district. EA Networks was also on stand-by overnight. Emergency services manager Don Geddes said that while most of the district had got off lightly with manageable snow levels up to the foothills areas, the Ashburton Gorge appeared to have taken the brunt of the storm. By 11am yesterday, Lake Heron Station had 56 centimetres of snow with heavy falls continuing. The council was in contact with station owner Philip Todhunter, and would provide road clearing work as needed to allow heavy machinery onto the station to carve tracks so feed could be taken to stock, Mr Geddes said. In Ashburton localised flooding was being dealt with on a situation by situation basis, he said. “We’re just sitting tight here. We’re watching things very closely and it will be like this for the next 24 hours. This is not over yet.” Council assets manager Andrew Guthrie said the magnitude of the rain event was beyond the capacity of the town’s stormwater system to cope. “Most of the network dealt with it well but we had a few localised
issues. Most of those manifested on urban-rural boundaries where sheet flooding on land came into urban areas.” There was the odd event where sewage came up through gully traps and that occurred when stormwater pipes were overloaded with water and escaped through any vent available. “This doesn’t only happen in Ashburton, it happens all over New Zealand when there’s very heavy rainfall,” Mr Guthrie said. The big wet meant a busy day for Ashburton’s volunteer firefighters. They were sent scrambling from street to street, to calls from residents with flooded sections and streets. Station officer Murray Cairns said there was little the fire crews could do, but watch. “The water wasn’t draining fast enough through the stormwater drains, so we were powerless really. If there was a threat of water going into garages or houses, then we would have gone in and started lifting furniture – but there was no reason for that to happen,” he said. “It was certainly wet, but there was no major risk to any properties in Ashburton.”

Skifield receives 1.2m of snow By Susan Sandys Methven residents stocked up on supplies and hunkered down in bitter weather yesterday, while Mt Hutt received over one metre of snow, isolating some staff. As schools and preschools closed, many in Methven stayed home by their log fires and heaters, venturing outside only if they had to. About 12 centimetres of snow which fell by 10am in the town turned into slush and large puddles as rain and bitter winds set in. Snow began falling again about 2.30pm and light falls continued throughout the rest of the day. Many braved the miserable conditions to stock up on supplies at the town centre shops. Methven Supervalue owner operator Steve Ling was clearing snow from around the shop and putting up signs saying “We have bread” yesterday afternoon. He had run out a couple of times earlier in the week as residents stocked up before the storm. A family member driving from Christchurch on Wednesday had filled their car up at a bakery to bring in extra supplies for the store, and Mr Ling went to Ashburton yes-
terday to get extra supplies from the store’s depot. “We don’t really want our customers to miss out,” he said. He had delivered groceries to a couple of elderly people in the town yesterday who did not want to brave the snow and slush-covered roads or the treacherous footpaths. English tourists Lisa Martin and Steve Gee were stocking up on grocery items and were amazed to see the snowy conditions in Methven, having arrived from Christchurch earlier in the day. They were staying at Pudding Hill Lodge and hoped they would not be stuck there for the day today with snow forecast to continue. “I think it’s risky, but we have access to four-wheel-drive,” Ms Martin said. A farmer stocking up on eggs and toilet paper at the town’s Four Square Supermarket said he had needed to come in to town not just to get groceries, but also another set of wet weather gear at ATS. Cattle had wandered from snow damaged fences on the farm and he had been outside working in the bad weather most of the day. Among those who had fun in the snow were cousins Riley Fitzgerald, 3, and Liam Clarke, 2. They made a
snowman in their Methven front yard with the help of Riley’s dad Shaun, enjoying putting on their ski suits and getting outside and playing. Meanwhile, Mt Hutt Ski Area received 1.2 metres of snow in the 24 hours to 5pm yesterday, its largest one-day snowfall for at least eight years. The snowfall made the mountain’s access road impassable and isolated a small number of staff. Four groomer drivers, three ski patrollers and two road crew travelled up to the ski area on Wednesday and remained there last night. Ski area manager James McKenzie said the staff had joined their fellow workers of the ski area’s three custodians, who are usually the only ones who sleep overnight on the mountain. “There might be an opportunity to get them out (before Saturday) but it could be a long haul for them,” Mr McKenzie said. There was a “huge amount of work to do” in terms of snow clearing and avalanche control before the ski area could open, and there was only a 25 per cent chance it would open today. There was a 50 per cent chance it would open tomorrow and a 95 per cent chance it would open on Sunday.

By Myles Hume The number of students completing courses at Aoraki Polytechnic continues to fall, but the institute has seen a marked improvement in other key areas. That’s according to the Tertiary Education Commission’s 2012 education performance indicators released this recently for polytechnics and technology institutes which has left acting chief executive Alex Cabrera feeling “comfortable”. The results found the polytechnic, which has a campus in Ashburton, saw a drop in the number of students completing courses from 80 per cent in 2011 to 78 per cent last year, ranking it 14th out of 18 institutions. It is a severe drop for the tertiary education provider which was rated as the top institute for course completion in 2010 with 84 per cent of students finishing. “Completions may be down slightly due to people getting jobs and also the higher ratio of full time programmes to short awards,” Mr Cabrera said. The figures are yet to be confirmed. In other areas, the number of students completing qualifications had seen a significant nine per cent rise, going from 68 per cent to 77 per cent and ranking it third in the sector. Retaining its students has also been a strong point for Aoraki Polytechnic in 2012, seeing 18 per cent more students returning for another year of study compared with 2011. “Aoraki has made developments in its programme portfolio, pathwaying to higher level education which we believe has led to better student retention in study,” Mr Cabrera said. “Overall the indicative results are positive and show improvements from the previous year.” One concern would be the polytechnic’s lowly ranking in progression, where a student goes on to a higher level qualification at levels one to four. The polytechnic was ranked 17th out of 18 for the past two years with only a four per cent rise to 21 per cent. Mr Cabrera said he would talk in more detail about the result when the results are confirmed.
Grants handed out
More than $1 million has come back into the Ashburton community in the past year through profits from gaming machines. When the Lion Foundation tallied up its annual community grants, they totalled $45.7m; Ashburton’s share was $1 million plus, from gaming machines at six venues in the district. The district’s biggest winner was the EA Networks Centre with the Ashburton Stadium trust granted $100,000. Other big winners were Ashburton

Weather to test hunters’ mettle BE PREPARED! By Sue Newman The weather will be both the friend and the enemy of hunters in this weekend’s Mid Canterbury Hunting Competition. While snow will drive animals down from the tops, putting them within shooting range, getting to those animals in what are likely to be horrendous conditions, will be the ultimate challenge said one of the event organisers Richard Clucas The annual hunting competition started at midnight and has attracted record entries this year. Deer, thar, chamois, pigs, wallabies and goats can be shot anywhere in the South Island
College, $45,000, the Ashburton Operatic Society, $42,000, Mid Canterbury Rugby Union, $40,000, Mid Canterbury branch of the Plunket Society, $38,500, Mid Canterbury Cricket, $31,000, Mid Canterbury Football, $30,000, Mid Canterbury Tennis, $30,000, Tinwald Reserve Board, $28,000, Ashburton Community Pool, $25,000, Ashburton Safer Community Trust, $25,000. More than 80 local groups received grants ranging from $100,000 down to $1100.
but they must be shot through fair chase which means animals cannot be poisoned or trapped and they must be shot by hunters on foot. Helicopters can only be used to drop hunters into remote areas and to carry them – and their animals – out at the end of the weekend. Shooting from the air is not allowed. Shooters must bring their kill to the Hotel Ashburton car park on Sunday by 3pm to have it weighed to be eligible for their share of more than $20,000 in prizes The competition is in its sixth year and each year the number of competitors increases,
Mr Clucas said. With rain and snow forecast to continue falling today and tomorrow morning, any hunters planning to camp out for the duration of the hunt might be advised to rethink their plans and try to secure a hut bed, he said. While hunting was always a challenge, this year’s event would be the ultimate in battles with the conditions, Mr Clucas said. “The weather might move the deer down but the hunters need to be able to get in to them so what they get will depend on the amount of snow around.” The weigh-in at the Hotel Ashburton traditionally attracts a large gallery to admire the hunters’ trophies.

Board to oversee promotion By Sue Newman The way in which the Ashburton District is promoted to the world is about to change with a new board set to oversee the organisation. Experience Mid Canterbury is now a council controlled organisation and the new board is tasked with achieving a high profile for the district as a tourist destination. The council appointed board was an exciting mix of talents, said council chief executive Brian Lester. “We were extremely pleased with the quality of applicants and unfortunately some very good people have not been able to be appointed,” he said. The board was selected by an appointments panel of council staff and elected members and approved by the council last week. The new board members are: Giles Beal – Chief Executive, Ashburton Licensing Trust Jim Burgess – Ashburton District Councillor and former hotelier Dilan De Silva – General Manager, Terrace Downs Resort Matthew Findlay – General Manager, Aeronautical Business Development, Christchurch International Airport Kelvin Holmes – Ashburton Branch Manager, Rothbury Insurance Brokers Dr Dominic Moran – Managing Director, Moran Tourism Group Ltd James Urquhart – General
Manager Operations, Mt Hutt, NZ Ski Ltd Dr Moran has been appointed by the council as board chair. While he had undertaken the review of all the council-funded agencies, it was still appropriate that he was the first board chair because of his expertise and relationships in the regional tourism sector and his knowledge of the operations of Experience Mid Canterbury, Mr Lester said. In subsequent years the board will vote for its chairman. The new board is a mix of local and regional heavy hitters in the tourism sector, he said. “No council-funded agency has had this level of regional expertise on its board before and I believe the challenges facing local and regional tourism sectors warrant the encouragement of more regional approaches. “The Canterbury earthquakes have severely hit most areas of Canterbury tourism with visitor numbers coming through Christchurch airport significantly down and specific sectors like ski continuing to be below pre-quake levels. We need to be looking at regional initiatives to turn things around.” The district had been fortunate that the current board members have been willing to give their time and expertise to the organisation, some for a great many years,” said Mr Lester. The new board will take up the reins of the tourism organisation on July 1.
Some tips for the weekend
Saturday: • Called off The majority of weekend sport fixtures in the district have been called off due to inclement weather. Refer to sports section for more information.
Sunday: • Hunting competition The Mid Canterbury Hunting Competition will be in full swing, attracting some of the South Island’s top hunters to the surrounds of Mid Canterbury. Weigh-in is expected to be on Sunday from about 1.30pm, as hunters get the go ahead to hunt anywhere in the South Island, providing they are back in time for the weigh-in. Come along to Hotel Ashburton and check out the weekend’s biggest catches.

Massive seas off the east coast have swamped the Ashburton River mouth with the ocean now washing up against the badly eroded cliffs that are home to six sea-front baches in the Hakatere Huts settlement.
Storm gives Hakatere cliffs a hammering By Sue Newman The Pacific Ocean might be hammering at his front door but last night Paul Veitch did what he always does at night – watched telly, went to bed and slept like a log. His bach is one of six that sit in the front row of the Hakatere Huts settlement, on cliffs that have been
seriously eroded by the Ashburton River. Yesterday, towering waves, stirred up by the southerly storm that is battering New Zealand, had swamped the river mouth and were battering the Hakatere cliffs. The front row baches have all lost significant land over the past few years with some now separated from a sheer drop by less than two metres. Mr Veitch said he had seen
seas of that size before along the coast and was keeping his fingers crossed that yesterday’s pounding wouldn’t be the final straw in the battle against erosion. “I don’t know if I’m being blasé or not but I’m not too concerned about it. I’ve seen it like this before, coming up to the edge of the bank where the tyres are. It’s there again and just as long as it doesn’t come up to the top.”
Worst blizzard conditions in memory By Michelle Nelson Farmers in the Ashburton Gorge are reporting the worst blizzard conditions in memory. Rural Support Trust spokesperson John Leadley spent yesterday talking to farmers throughout the district. More than 70cm of snow was reported at Lake Heron Station, where a severe blizzard, described as the worst ever seen, was howling. “We’ve also been liaising with the Ashburton District Council to get the Ashburton Gorge Road open, but the equipment had to pull back at the Maori Lakes because of blizzard conditions. “We’re waiting for clearance to get a bulldozer up there, but conditions don’t allow it at the moment,” Mr Leadley said. “We’ve got a phone tree in the gorge, but we haven’t had to open our headquarters at this point. “The Rural Support Trust is ready to go; we’ve been in touch with Mt Hutt Helicopters and have people available if required. “It’s very much a waiting game at the moment.”
Mr Leadley was not aware of any power outages, although there were reports of lights flickering up the gorge. Further down the gorge, Mid Canterbury Federated Farmers meat and fibre section chair Michael Salvesen has 30 to 40cm of snow on Surrey Hills Station in the Ashburton Gorge, and although this is not unusual at this time of the year, it was still snowing heavily last night. He’s had the snow ploughs out. “We’ve cleared the roads, so if we get more snow there won’t be a whole heap to shift – it’s much easier to keep on top of it,” Mr Salvesen said. He too said the high winds were causing problems. “It’s not quite horizontal but it is going sideways, we’ve been feeding our young stock, but the others are up on the hill, tucking into whatever shelter they can find. “I’ve spoken to the neighbours, they’ve also had snow ploughs out in paddocks clearing grass for sheep, and to feed out on – it’s much easier to do on clear patches, otherwise they tramp it underfoot. “We’re okay – the grader was up

With grass covered by the first snowfall of the winter, farm staff on Springfield Estate were out early feeding silage and nuts to stock. here earlier this morning, and we got the post as well.” Ashburton Forks farmer and Mid Canterbury Federated Farmers chair, Chris Allen, said snow melt, brought on by wind and heavy rain was causing problems in his area.
“Flooding is showing up as sheets of water coming toward the house,” he said. “The wind chill is bitter, and the feed – the feed utilisation is rubbish, with stock treading kale, hay and silage into the ground.
“Snow with wind is hard on stock – especially if it stretches on for days.” The Allens struck a new problem with this storm – in the age of digital television, snow on the satellite dish shut down services.
How much damage the big seas had done to the cliffs wouldn’t be known until the waters receded, Mr Veitch said. Last night Environment Canterbury issued a swell warning for the Canterbury Coastline with swells up to five metres expected from a southerly or south-southeasterly direction. Updates on sea swells are available on line www.ecan.govt.nz
Pound consents signed off By autumn, Ashburton’s lost dogs will have a new place to call home while they wait to be reunited with their owners. Resource consents for the Ashburton District Council’s pound have been signed off and with just a bit of tweaking left to do on the complex’s plans, council property manager John Rooney said the project will go to tender next month. The pound will be built on council owned land on Range Street, on a site previously leased to EA Netoworks for its pole storage yard. The new pound will be a quantum leap in comfort from the original pound on William Street or the temporary pound in the Ashburton Domain. It will include two quarantine pens, 12 general pens that have access to a yard as well as a substantial exercise area. Mr Rooney anticipates the pound will be ready for its first occupants in March or April.
• Staying put Police are urging residents to stay put this weekend and only travel if absolute necessary. Many roads have experienced surface flooding and with cold temperatures predicted, it is certain to create dangerous driving conditions for all vehicles.
On the couch: • International rugby test Tune in to watch the mighty All Blacks take on France in their third and final encounter, to be hosted in New Plymouth on Saturday night. The ABs have taken out the first two games and already sealed the trophy, but you can be sure Les Bleus will be playing to restore pride. Action kicks-off from 7.30pm on Sky Sport.

Postponement a tough call but the right one I
t’s more a matter of what’s off, than what’s on in the line-up of weekend events in today’s paper.

OUR VIEW the first time ever. Even in the 2002 snow storm the show went on. Those who have attended the ball, or whose teenagers did, will vividly recall the pre-ball hype. For the girls it’s all about the dress; the hair style and the make-up. For the boys, booking suits, organising flowers and arranging
a suitable carriage to deliver their dates to the ball will have been a priority for many. The ball committee has also been hard at work behind the scenes, as has the team from Acads, backed up by a squad of parents – making sure both the function and the after-ball party go off without a hitch. Businesses were also rocked

by yesterday afternoon’s notification. Florists, hair stylists, make-up experts, those
who hire suits and the Hotel Ashburton, ready to cater for tonight’s ball, were all left high and dry – because the weather is forecast to be wet and temperatures low. The ball was postponed in the face of sleety showers and temperatures of just five degrees – and that’s the best case scenario; tonight’s weather could deliver anything, including ice, snow and/or flooding on our roads – all of which make driving

Guilty plea in kidnap, drag case 021 052-7511
WRITE US EDITOR, PO Box 77
By Katie Holland A Rotorua man who kidnapped his girlfriend then dragged her behind a car for almost 2km told police he put her in the car boot “to show her that he loved her”. Sonny Te Aramoana Waiti, 26, appeared in the Rotorua District Court yesterday, handcuffed and guarded by three officers. Through his lawyer Harry Edward he pleaded guilty to a charge of kidnapping 37-year-old Rotorua mother Ana Eriepa on May 25. According to the police summary of facts, Waiti and Ms Eriepa were in a relationship and had been living together for about three weeks since Waiti was released from prison. On the night before the incident they travelled to Tauranga and bought a new car. Waiti had been
consuming alcohol and drugs on the trip and had become “paranoid”. Around mid-morning on May 25 Waiti arrived at Ms Eriepa’s Clinkard Ave home, drunk and driving erratically. The couple argued and Waiti ordered Ms Eriepa to drive him around Rotorua, then to his family’s rural property on State Highway 30 south of the city. While at that property Waiti picked up Ms Eriepa and put her in the boot, locking her inside. He then drove off, with Ms Eriepa yelling at him from inside the boot. About 1.30pm the car was seen by several witnesses driving erratically on State Highway 1 between Tokoroa and Putaruru. They then saw the boot open and Ms Eriepa fall out. She later told police she felt the car swerving and was fearful of the car crashing. She found a cable that allowed her to open the boot
and “sought the opportunity to escape”. The car was travelling between 90 and 100km/h when she climbed out. However one of her ankles got caught between the tow ball and the bumper, trapping her. She was dragged over the rough chip seal road for at least 1.66km. Other motorists tried to alert Waiti but he continued driving at speeds in excess of 100km/h. Eventually another driver pulled up beside him but Waiti gave him the finger and swerved towards him. That swerving motion flung Ms Eriepa free and she came to rest 50m away in the middle of the road. Waiti continued driving but was arrested a short time later where police noted his behaviour was confrontational and he appeared to be under the influence of substances.
He initially denied wrongdoing but later told police he had been released from prison three weeks earlier and had been smoking cannabis and methamphetamine continuously since then. “He thought the victim was ‘cheating’ on him in their relationship and he put her in the car boot as he wanted to show her that he loved her,” the summary stated. Ms Eriepa was seriously injured and remains in hospital. Her left leg has been amputated below the knee. Other injuries included a dislocated wrist, deep scalp lacerations, a degloving injury to a foot, fractured femur of her left leg, extensive skin loss around a buttock with the glute muscle torn off and multiple abrasions over the majority of her body. Waiti was remanded in custody for sentencing in the Rotorua District Court on August 23. - APNZ

businesses impacted by the decision have rallied to support the move. Most have been prepared to wear the cost of the postponement, rebooking appointments, flowers and venues. As the parent of three ballgoing revellers over the years I applaud their stance – it’s expensive, and stressful to get them there once – but twice in a year? That thought makes me shudder!

Offers of help have been flooding in for the Foster family who had all their firewood stolen while spending what is likely to be their last holiday together. The family, including father Rob, who is dying of bowel cancer, faced a cold, hard winter after their supply of wood was stolen. They returned home this week after a seven-day trip in Fiji to
discover the theft. An anonymous friend had paid for the trip. Phonecalls and emails offering the family firewood – ranging from a small boot-load to an entire truck-full – flooded in. Mr Foster was staggered by people’s generosity and their quick response. “The phone started ringing at about 8.30am and it’s just been constant with people saying ‘I can’t give you much but here’s a boot or trailer load’. The generosity is
overwhelming.” Mr Foster said he had tried to help bring in the first load but couldn’t. The cancer had spread through his body, tumours in his spine causing a lot of pain and making movement difficult. “I want to say thank you. I’m so incredibly grateful and thankful for this unexpected generosity from people who we’ve never met.” Mr Foster’s wife, Tori, said they had received about 12 phone calls by lunchtime yesterday, all offering help: “The callers have been
amazed that people would be low enough to steal somebody’s firewood. People have been so generous and wanting to do everything they can.” So many offers had come through that Mrs Foster said they would be able to burn the fire 24/7 to keep Rob warm all day. “One guy who offered a truckload also asked if there was anything else he could do to help and suggested an electric blanket so Rob would be warm in bed. -APNZ
The father of 2-year-old New Zealand triplets who died in a Qatar mall fire just over a year ago has expressed his relief at guilty verdicts in the case, saying he never expected justice for his children. Seven people, including the owners of the nursery where Lillie, Willsher and Jackson Weekes died, had been on trial over the fire at Doha’s Villaggio mall, which killed 19 people, including 13 children, on May 28 last year. Sheikh Ali Bin Jassim Al Thani, who is Qatar’s Ambassador to Belgium and a co-owner of Gympanzee; Iman Al-Kuwari, daughter of Qatar’s culture minister and a co-owner and manager of Gympanzee; Tzoulios Tzouliou, Villaggio’s manager; and Abdul Aziz Mohammed Al-Rabban, Villaggio’s chairman, were given the maximum sentence of six years in jail for involuntary manslaughter, Doha News reported. Mansour Nasir Fazzaa alShahwani of Qatar’s Ministry of Business and Trade was sentenced to five years’ jail on the same charge, according to the website, which has been following the case closely. Cleared of any wrongdoing were Villaggio Mall assistant manager Rima Itani and Villaggio’s head of security Ahmad Muhammad Abdul Rahman. Lillie, Willsher, Jackson and the other children were being looked after at the Gympanzee nursery above a shop where the fire broke due to an electrical fault. Their father Martin Weekes said he had been bracing for the worst and was relieved at the outcome of the court case. The verdicts had been “a long
time coming”, Mr Weekes said last night. He was “relieved and grateful” the justice system had come out in favour of the victims. “I think it was not a verdict that any of us were contemplating - it’s been such a dreadful, dreadful year we were just expecting the worst. “So we are pleasantly surprised - if you can say you are surprised and happy about the fact that people have been held accountable for the death of your children.” The verdicts had sent a clear message that public safety was important, Mr Weekes said. “The defendants have got 15 days in which to appeal, so I guess we have to wait and see until the end of that period as to what happens after that,” he said. “But it’s the best outcome we could have hoped for – it’s more than we could have hoped for.” More than a year after the tragedy, Mr Weekes was still angry about the official process that had dragged on. The families of the victims had been promised a report into the fire, which they and the court were yet to receive. “The report was commissioned by the Crown Prince, therefore it is his report. We’ve been promised that report from countless levels of authority, including the Attorney-General in Qatar, however, the only person that can release it is the Crown Prince,” Mr Weekes said earlier. On the anniversary of the fire, Mr Weekes and his wife Jane released three lanterns from Cheltenham Beach near their Devonport home in memory of their children. The couple are expecting twins in August. - APNZ
Alleged swan killers get name suppression By Sandra Conchie A man accused of animal cruelty offences relating to black swans being allegedly mowed down by a jet boat on Tauranga Harbour has won his bid to keep his identity secret. The man who has been granted interim name and occupation suppression faced three charges of ill-treatment of an animal, black swans, when he and another man appeared before Tauranga Community Magistrate Sue Howell yesterday. The allegations against the first man is that the ill-treatment resulted in the swans being seriously injured or impaired after being hit on or about December 26 last year. The first defendant and the other man, who has also been granted name suppression, face a further unrelated animal illtreatment charge stemming from a separate incident in 2011. Both men were arrested after a joint investigation by SPCA and
Fish & Game New Zealand after footage of a boat allegedly running the swans down aired on TV3 in March this year. A warrant for arrest had been issued for a third man also charged with the later charge who was evading a court summons being served on him, the court was told. The first two men’s lawyer, Mark Beech, successfully argued for name suppression on the grounds it would cause extreme hardship to his clients and their families, and to protect their rights to a fair trial given earlier “inaccurate” prior publicity about the alleged swan offences. The Bay of Plenty Times argued in favour of publication, but Ms Howell said given the informant did not oppose the application she was prepared to grant suppression on an interim basis. Both defendants were remanded on bail without pleas, and are due back in court on July 16, when the question of name suppression is expected to be revisited. - APNZ
Burglar bumps into body By Natalie Akoorie A burglar made a shocking discovery when he stumbled upon a dead body hanging in the dark as he snooped around a house. The burglar’s terrified screams alerted neighbours to a commotion at the house in Hamilton early yesterday. It is understood the burglar rang police and reported himself, in order to raise the alarm. Police confirmed that a burglar discovered a body in a house he had broken into in Hamilton’s north-east. Hamilton city area commander Inspector Greg Nicholls said officers were investigating the “very unusual” incident. “There are two things in play there. Firstly, the deceased. That’s a matter for us to investigate on behalf of the coroner and the circumstances around that. Secondly, the burglary.”
Mr Nicholls said the dead person was a man. He did not know how old he was. The inspector said he had never heard of anything like it happening in his 28 years in the police in Hamilton. He thought the fright might give the intruder a new perspective. “I’m hopeful that this may be a careerchanging moment for that burglar. I dare say for the burglar - if we remove the criminality of what he was doing - it would be really shocking,” Mr Nicholls said. “Can you imagine what that would be like in the dark?” Hamilton city tactical co-ordinator Senior Sergeant Freda Grace said it was “probably fairly traumatic” for the burglar. A police source who did not want to be named said the intruder might have reported himself to avoid becoming the subject of a more-serious investigation over the dead body. “That’s why I would have rung it in,” the source said. - APNZ

NZ set to benefit from Aussie cuts By Christopher Adams New Zealand looks set to benefit from a massive round of job cuts planned by two major corporations across the Tasman. ANZ spokesman Stephen Ries confirmed to the Australian Associated Press that the bank was considering laying off almost 600 Melbournebased call centre staff and shifting the work to New Zealand and the Philippines. Global information technology giant IBM is reportedly looking to axe as many as 1400 Australian staff in a restructuring that would see many positions relocated to New Zealand and Asia. Ries said that ANZ needed to operate more efficiently in Australia’s “lower growth environment”. “No decision has been made [on the job cuts], nor will there be a decision in the near future,” he said. The Australian said IBM planned to cut 10 per cent of its Aussie workforce in response to disappointing first quarter financial results. The company is estimated to employ between 12,000 and 14,000 staff in Australia. About 450 Australian IBM workers were expected to be made redundant by the end of this month, The Australian reported. BNZ chief economist Tony Alexander wasn’t surprised by the news.
“One of the comments I’ve been making for two to three years is that we will start to see jobs moving out of Australia into New Zealand because of the high degree of unionisation in Australia’s work force and the high [labour] costs ... New Zealanders are more cost-effective,” Alexander said. “I expect we will see more of this over time.” But he didn’t think the shift sometimes referred to as “nearshoring” - suggested this country was becoming a kind of Mexico or Bangladesh of the South Pacific. “I don’t think it’s saying anything about New Zealand - it’s a reminder that countries like the Philippines, for instance, are moving up the economic scale and the education of people is sufficient that they can communicate with people in developed economies,” Alexander said. Last year Woolworths Australia moved a contact centre to Auckland, citing lower costs among the benefits, following similar expansion plans for cigarette manufacturing, food processing and media work to New Zealand. Australian wages are about 30 per cent higher than those in this country. Meanwhile, food manufacturer Heinz is planning to lay off around 45 staff at an infant formula factory it operates in northern England and shift production to New Zealand, where local dairy co-op Fonterra will be contracted to carry out the work. - APNZ

By Jared Savage Mark Lundy’s sister is “very hopeful” the Privy Council will quash her brother’s murder convictions and order a new trial – while her husband has revealed their anger over how police failed to disclose a document which was important to his defence. Caryl Jones and her husband David flew from New Zealand to attend the three day hearing at the Privy Council in London for her brother’s final attempt to clear his name. She has always believed he was innocent, and after the hearing finished she paid tribute to those who had helped to crusade to free Mark Lundy, including lawyers David Hislop QC and Malcolm Birdling as well as Geoff Levick who brought the case to their attention. Mrs Jones had been nervous before the hearing, but was pleased with how the appeal went. She had stood by Lundy because: “He’s my brother and I love him. I’ve got two brothers and I love them both”. Their other brother, Craig, believes Lundy is guilty of killing his wife Christine and daughter Amber. Mr Jones was also pleased with how the appeal went, but said he was surprised and angry to discov-

Terry’s hot deal
after year and might even die there, it’s a pretty chilling thought.” He said he had a feeling that “something wasn’t right” when he read the case file two years ago. “We’ll see whether their Lordships [the Privy Council] agree or not.” The appeal before the five members of the Privy Council, including Chief Justice Dame Sian Elias, is likely to be the last of its kind for New Zealand. The decision on whether to quash Lundy’s convictions will not be released for several weeks, if not months. The Privy Council could deny the appeal outright, but there were two other options. The Law Lords could order a retrial or send the case back to the Court of Appeal, which could hear the conflicting evidence over the disputed brain tissue evidence and then decide whether a new trial should be held. The appeal hinged on a number of key planks submitted by Mr Hislop which included: • the failure of police to disclose a document to defence lawyers • the validity of science used to identify matter on Lundy’s shirt as brain tissue • the examination of stomach contents to determine the time of death • the examination of a computer’s shutdown time which led
to allegations Lundy tampered with the machine to create an alibi • the failure of the judge to properly direct the jury about the evidence of the sole eye witness. Deputy Solicitor -General Cameron Mander responded to the criticism on behalf of the Crown, and also reminded the Privy Council of important evidence in the original trial. Stains and smears of Christine Lundy’s blood on a window was a strong suggestion the window was forced open after the murders occurred as a “staged scenario” of a burglary, said Mr Mander. The sliding door beside the window was left open. Fragments of paint flakes found on or near the bodies matched samples of paint on Lundy’s set of tools, said Mr Mander. In closing his submissions, Mr Mander said if the Privy Council was to grant Lundy’s appeal there needed to be another hearing in the Court of Appeal to determine the strength of the scientific evidence offered by the defence lawyers. In response, Mr Hislop disagreed. “We respectfully submit that if the criteria of fresh evidence is met, if credibility is met, then the dispute between scientific experts is a matter for the true finders of fact - the jury.” - APNZ

meeting is held in private before final decisions are made. An announcement is expected late next week. The Government increased its contribution to the rebuild by $2 billion to $15 billion in April after revising the estimated cost upwards from $30 billion to $40 billion.
Prime Minister John Key and Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee have said in the past that the council should sell off some of its assets to free up some cash to pay for its “nice to haves” in the rebuild. The idea of the council partly selling its stake in assets, such as power company Orion,
Lyttelton Port Company Ltd and Christchurch International Airport Ltd, is “incredibly logical”, according to Mr Key. But Mayor Bob Parker has repeatedly rejected those suggestions, as well as calls to increase rates, and instead prefers to borrow the money required for its share of the rebuild. -apnz

Lundy family anger over held evidence
ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, June 21, 2013
The New Zealand economy grew at half the pace analysts were expecting in the first three months of the year as drought across the North Island sapped milk production and dragged the agriculture sector down. The kiwi dollar fell on the numbers. Gross domestic product grew 0.3 per cent to $37.1 billion in the three months ended March 31, from a pace of 1.5 per cent in the December period, according to Statistics New Zealand. That’s half the 0.6 per cent rate predicted in a Reuters survey of economists and below the 0.5 per cent pace forecast by the Reserve Bank in its June monetary policy statement published last week. The economy grew at an annual 2.5 per cent, in line with expectations, and activity in the March quarter was 2.4 per cent higher than the same period a year earlier. Agriculture, forestry and fishing shrank 4.8 per cent due to the arid climate conditions in the quarter, trimming 0.3 of a percentage point from GDP. The Reserve Bank was expecting the drought will trim about half a percentage point from economic growth. Agriculture shrank 4.7 per cent, the biggest fall since the June 2010 quarter. “The impact of the drought showed up as expected, with lower milk production and higher slaughter numbers for the first three months of 2013,” GDP project manager Jason Attewell said in a statement. “We expect the drought will impact on the economy for several quarters, as lower herd numbers and conception rates will affect future production.” The New Zealand dollar fell as low as 78.38 US cents from 78.90 cents immediately before the figures were released. New Zealand’s primary sector grew 6.5 per cent on an annual basis with favourable growing conditions through 2012 before the drought, which stoked dairy production.
Manufacturing grew 0.2 per cent in the March quarter, fuelled by a 3 per cent gain in food, beverage and tobacco manufacturing due to rising slaughter numbers fuelling meat manufacturing. Earlier this month, the BNZBusinessNZ performance of manufacturing index showed New Zealand manufacturing activity rose in May to the highest level since June 2004, led by improved growth in production, new orders and employment. Construction helped drive growth in the period, rising 5.5 per cent, on the back of residential building and the Canterbury rebuild effort. Investment in residential building climbed 9.6 per cent in its seventh quarterly gain and the biggest increase since September 2002. Information media and telecommunications shrank 3.1 per cent in the quarter due to falling call minutes, and are down 1.1 per cent annually. Electricity, gas, water and waste services shrank 4.4 per cent as declining metal production manufacturing sapped electricity generation. Service industries grew 0.5 per cent in the quarter with strong gains in professional, scientific, technical, administrative and support services, for an annual gain of 17 per cent. Last week, the BNZ-BusinessNZ performance of services index showed the sector grew at its fastest pace for a May month since 2007. The expenditure measure of GDP, which measures the final purchases of locally produced goods and services, grew 0.3 per cent in the quarter, and was up 3.1 per cent annually. Household consumption rose 0.4 per cent with increased spending on nondurable goods, such as food and nonalcoholic beverages. Spending was up 2.2 per cent in the year. Gross fixed capital formation, which is made up of business investment and residential building investment, rose 0.4 per cent in the quarter, bolstered by residential investment activity. Investment in plant, machinery and equipment shrank 6.2 per cent. GFCF grew 6.7 per cent annually. – APNZ
Peters vows $300m rail boost It would cost about $300 million to upgrade the rail line to Auckland and build the rail link to Marsden Pt and New Zealand First would make sure both were done if it were part of the next government, NZ First Leader Winston Peters said this week. Mr Peters, the guest speaker at the goodGround Business Breakfast at Ruakaka’s Outboard Restaurant, said after decades of Northland voting in National MPs the region’s future had been derailed by National. The audience was made up of real estate agents, business leaders, Northland Regional Council chairman Craig Brown, Whangarei Deputy Mayor Phil Halse and Bream Bay ward councillor Shelley Deeming. Mr Peters said upgrading the rail line between Northland and Auckland and putting in a rail link to the deep water port at Marsden Pt were crucial for the region’s economy. But “unfortunately for Northland and New Zealand, the National Party is clearly anti-rail. It has long had a clear agenda to undermine and dismantle much of New Zealand’s rail infrastructure”. National’s rail sins included selling NZ Rail in 1997 in a private deal; allowing the buyers to asset strip and run the railways down; closing the Hillside Workshops in Dunedin last year; selecting overseas tenders to manufacture rolling stock rather than accept bids from Hillside and continuing to refuse to support the Auckland City Rail Link. Mr Peters said it would cost about $200 million to upgrade the line to Auckland and another $100 million for the spur line to Marsden Pt, both
“drops in the ocean” when compared with the $10 billion National was spending on its Roads of National Significance (RONS) project, which includes upgrading State Highway 1 in Northland. “The $100 million is over $20 million less than the sort of money the government spent on consultants and PR merchants to promote the sale of Mighty River Power. The costs are not excessive in terms of transport infrastructure projects and the potential benefits are huge. “Whangarei has a great advantage of a deep water harbour that doesn’t require dredging like nearly everywhere else does and there’s plenty of flat, eas-
ily developed land for expansion. But the potential of the Port of Northland for the region, as well as for the country as a whole, is being strangled by lack of an effective rail link.” He said NZ First’s position was clear – upgrade the line to Auckland and develop the link to Marsden Pt. Mr Halse said the Whangarei District and Northland Regional councils were working with other councils in the Upper North Island Strategic Alliance on an integrated transport plan that included road and rail. Mr Brown said all the councils in the alliance recognised that Port Marsden would be needed well into the future and was important nationally. – APNZ
NZ Post to cull corporate jobs By Christopher Adams New Zealand Post says it will axe 80 to 100 corporate roles at the state-owned company’s Wellington and Auckland offices by July. Spokesman John Tulloch said the restructuring would provide cost savings and also right-size the firm, which has faced a sharp decline in mail volumes, to meet the current business conditions. “At New Zealand Post there were probably some vestiges of the past there and it’s a case of making sure we’ve got a corporate structure for a very rapidly evolving, changing market,” said Tulloch.
The job cuts will affect roughly 6 per cent the company’s 1340 corporate staff. Tulloch said the majority of the job losses would take place in Wellington. “It’s never easy for individuals when their jobs get impacted but the only thing I can say is we’ve been talking to people for the last two years about change and how the structure of New Zealand Post is going to continue to evolve,” he said. “We’re an organisation that’s very much in a position of transition.” New Zealand Post reported a profit after tax of $169.7 million from revenue of $1.3 billion in the year to June 2012. – APNZ

Jolie: Syria crisis ‘worst of 21st century’ Oscar -winning actress Angelina Jolie has urged the international community to boost aid to Syrian refugees hit by what she called “the worst humanitarian crisis of the 21st century”, a UNHCR statement says. Jolie, who is UNHCR special envoy for refugee affairs, visited the Jordan-Syria border overnight accompanied by head of UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres. During their tour the two met Syrian refugees and heard how they had escaped their warravaged homes for Jordan. “By the end of this year half of Syria’s population – 10 million people – are expected to be displaced and in desperate need,” the Hollywood star was quoted as saying in the UNHCR statement. “The worst humanitarian crisis of the 21st century is unfolding in the Middle East today,” Jolie said, adding that the “the international response to this crisis falls short of the
vast scale of this human tragedy”. “Much more humanitarian aid is needed, and above all, a political settlement to this conflict must be found,” she said ahead of today’s World Refugee Day. Jolie said her visit was intended “to show support for Syria’s refugees, to call on the world to address their plight, and to better understand needs in Jordan and other countries in the region most directly affected by this devastating conflict”. Jordan says it is home to 540,000 Syrian refugees, 150,000 of whom are housed in the Zaatari camp in the kingdom’s north, near the border with Syria. More than 1.6 million Syrian refugees have sought refuge in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey since the beginning of an uprising against President Bashar al-Assad in March 2011, the UN says. It says the fighting in Syria has killed more than 93,000 – AFP people so far.
• Soprano star dies James Gandolfini, best known for his role as mob boss Tony Soprano in US television drama The Sopranos, has died in Italy after a suspected heart attack.

• Worse than SARS A mysterious new respiratory virus that originated in the Middle East spreads easily between people and appears more deadly than SARS, doctors reported yesterday after investigating the biggest outbreak in Saudi Arabia.

So far, illnesses haven’t spread as quickly as SARS did in 2003. – AP

RIGHT: Special envoy Angelina Jolie takes notes as she speaks with Syrian refugees in a Jordanian military camp based near the SyriaJordan border. The Syrian civil war contributed to pushing the numbers of refugees and those displaced by conflict within their own nation to an 18-year high of 45.2 million worldwide by the end of 2012, the UN refugee agency said yesterday.
G8 seeks unity on Syrian peace talks, tax evasion President Barack Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin and other G8 leaders attempted to speak with one voice yesterday on seeking a negotiated Syrian peace settlement – yet couldn’t publicly agree on whether this means President Bashar Assad must go. Their declaration at the end of the two-day Group of Eight summit sought to narrow the diplomatic chasm between Assad’s key backer, Russia, and Western
leaders on starting peace talks in Geneva to end a two-year civil war that has claimed an estimated 93,000 lives. G8 leaders also published sweeping goals for tightening the tax rules on globe-trotting corporations that long have exploited loopholes to shift profits into foreign shelters that charge little tax or none. But that initiative, aimed at forcing the Googles and Apples of the world to pay higher taxes,
contained only aspirations, not binding commitments. The declaration on Syria said the country needs a new coalition government with “a top leadership that inspires public confidence”, a definition that to British, French or American eyes would rule out Assad. It made no reference to sending US, British or French weapons to rebels, an option being kept open by the three G8 members.
Russia refused to back any declaration that made Assad’s ouster an explicit goal, arguing that it would be impossible to start peace talks with a predetermined outcome. Reflecting the profound divisions that remain, the British host, Prime Minister David Cameron, declared it was “unthinkable that President Assad can play any part in the future government of his country. He has blood on
his hands. He has used chemical weapons”. Putin – speaking at the same time as Cameron at a different location in a gesture that some diplomats construed as rude – rejected Cameron’s views as unproven. And referring to last month’s butchery of an off-duty British soldier in London by alleged axe and knife-wielding Muslim extremists, Putin warned Cameron that the

Call for sensitive media coverage of royal birth
The zoo in Novosibirsk, Russia’s third-largest city, is home to a unique animal – the liliger. That’s a big cat breed where the father is a lion and the mother is a lion-tiger hybrid, called a liger. The first liliger was born in the zoo last year and now there’s a second litter of three, all of them females. They were born in May, and now have grown up enough to start exploring their surroundings, showing an endearing clumsy energy. Their mother, Zita, was born in the zoo in 2004. Their father, – AP Sam, is an African lion.

St James Palace has called for “sensitive reporting” of the royal birth in light of the 2012 suicide of a nurse who was prank called by two Australian DJs. The plea came as it was revealed the Duchess of Cambridge wants a natural birth for her baby, who will be third in line to the throne. Sources have confirmed Kate plans a natural delivery at the private Lindo wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington. She won’t willingly join those dubbed “too posh to push”. A St James’ Palace spokesman yesterday appealed for media restraint in light of the December death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha. She worked at the King Edward VII hospital when Kate was treated for severe pregnancy sickness, but committed suicide after being hoaxed by 2Day FM DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian. The palace appreciates there’ll be “mass interest” in the baby’s
birth. “We simply appeal to all members of the media for the appropriate degree of sensitivity, dignity and privacy in their reporting,” a spokesman said. “With the events of King Edward VII hospital still strong in our memories we would expect any media covering the Duchess of Cambridge’s hospitalisation to ensure the normal functions of the hospital are not impeded.” Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams expects the press will behave appropriately. The public were against the media being too intrusive and outlets were increasingly aware they could be punished in court if they overstepped the mark, he said. “Given the circumstances, everybody knows this ought to be treated in a sensitive way,” Mr Fitzwilliams said. The royal commentator said Kate had been allowed to ease herself into the role of future Queen helped by her husband, the palace and good “arrangements” with the media. – AAP
Assange: WikiLeaks helping Snowden WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says he has been in contact with representatives of Edward Snowden to discuss his possible bid for asylum in Iceland following his disclosure of US surveillance programs. In a conference call with reporters on Wednesday, Assange said he had been in contact with representatives of Snowden, who has been based in Hong Kong since May 20, to discuss a potential attempt at securing asylum. “We are in touch with Mr Snowden’s legal team and have been, are involved, in the process of brokering his asylum in Iceland,” said Assange, who is holed up in Ecuador’s embassy in London where he is fighting extradition to Sweden. Former US government contractor Snowden, 29, fled to Hong Kong on May 20 but the United States has yet to file any formal extradition request after his bombshell leak of information about National Security Agency surveillance programs. Earlier on Wednesday,
Seven al-Qaida-linked militants on a suicide mission attacked the UN compound yesterday with a truck bomb and then poured inside, killing at least 13 people before dying in the assault. At least three foreigners were slain during the raid in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, where the United Nations expanded its presence this year. – AP
• Radcliffe wows Daniel Radcliffe has won magical reviews for his latest stage role as a disabled Irish dreamer in Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan. The former Harry Potter star plays the title role in a Michael Grandage-directed production of McDonagh’s scabrous tragicomedy at London’s Noel Coward Theatre. Radcliffe stars as Billy, a 17-year-old orphan on a remote island in 1930s Ireland, who sees a chance of escape from a life of boredom and mockery when an American film crew arrives on a neighbouring island to shoot the film Man of Aran. – AP
• 2 killed in floods Flash floods in southwestern France have claimed two elderly victims in the space of 24 hours and forced the inundated grotto at Lourdes to remain closed for a second day, officials say. A woman in her 70s was washed away overnight by the floodwaters after getting out of her submerged car at Saint Beat near Lourdes, the local prefecture said in a statement. That tragedy was followed yesterday by the death of a 75-yearold man, who was also swept to his death after the flood waters at Luz-Saint-Sauveur in the Pyrenees turned a local stream into a torrent. – AFP
• Bus plunge kills 30 At least 30 people have died after a bus plunged off a highway into a river in central Peru, authorities say. “So far, I have 30 confirmed dead, but the police are continuing to search for victims,” said Rodoricao Cubas Hurtado, chief of the local highway police. Cubas said nine people were still unaccounted for, and the search for additional victims was focused on the vehicle, which was still submerged in the river. – AFP
• Microsoft reward Julian Assange Iceland said it has held informal talks with an intermediary of Snowden over the possibility of seeking political asylum there. “A representative of his has, to my knowledge... had some informal discussions with some employees of a couple of ministries, but no formal discussions,” Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson said during a visit to Stockholm. He said that Snowden would need to be in Iceland in order to apply for asylum. – AFP

t is very interesting to me, having worked in the real estate industry for nearly 20 years, to see the change in attitude and expectations of young, first home buyers. Many are looking for a quality of home that comes close to the one their parents have. They are often not prepared to look at lower priced options as a first step onto the property ownership ladder. Outside of Mid Canterbury, in particular, affordability in Auckland and Christchurch remains near its worst level in three years after a 10% plus surge in house prices in the last year. Did you know it now takes 97.9% of a first home buyer’s income to purchase in Auckland when nationally any level over 40% is considered unaffordable? This can certainly make it difficult.
First time home buyers in the last year saw an improvement in affordability, particularly in smaller provincial areas such as Timaru and Invercargill. The majority of first home buyers, according to the Roost Index, are 25 to 29 year old. For this age group it remains difficult to purchase in the most central parts of the most populated cities.
can be added over time, giving the buyer the opportunity to define their budget comfort level.
One of the things I hear regularly is “I would have to get people in to paint, wallpaper etc, we can’t do it”. Well neither could we at first. In the beginning, we started improvements in the back bedroom and learnt on the job. Then In Mid Canterbury we are extremely fortunate by the time we got to the lounge we were quite good at it. Our children had to share a to have areas with good neighbourhoods and bedroom when they were small as we started excellent schooling that also offer affordable in a two bedroom on Suffolk Street. We were homes. The house may not be in a brand patient with ourselves and the work happened new subdivision, have an updated kitchen gradually. or the desired amount of bathrooms but it has good bones. Good bones in any house Now I hear comments like “it’s not a good makes the difference. Many of these older enough location”, “we need at least three properties are in need of a coat of fresh paint, bedrooms because we have a baby” or “it has but with renovation and landscaping value
a dated decor and kitchen”. All these things impact on overall affordability. It is important to look past the dated decor or layout and start to thinking how you could improve the house to create a home. Being financially stressed at any stage of life isn’t an ideal situation and borrowing to the limit of two wages may not be feasible. For those who are prepared to roll up their sleeves and can see the benefit of putting the effort in to an older first home will most likely create for themselves a solid investment when they take their next step up the property ladder. Your Real Estate Professional can assist you with advice on how to get onto the property ladder, just give them a call, they are very happy to discuss this with you.

covering Mid Canterbury...
Designing your nursery - dare to be different Decorating a room to become a baby nursery is an exciting time, but as many experienced designers and real estate agents alike will tell you, don’t go overboard on babying every single thing in the room.
hile you will want the area to be stimulating for the baby’s development, it also needs to be a calm environment for mum and dad, as during that all-important first year, you will be spending a lot of time in there, all hours of the day and night.
coloured paper, or mirrored butterflies. Teddy bears made from fuzzy felt or bright artificial sunflowers. Choose your colours to match your feature ceiling or a feature rug in the room, but don’t overdo the effect. Restrict your 3D wall decorations to one wall only for added impact.
From a practical point of view, your wee bundle of joy won’t be a tiny baby forever. Soon the room will be re-decorated for a school child and then later a teenager, so it pays to be smart with your choices of the big-ticket decorating items, such as carpet, window dressings and wall cover. Also if you need to move in the near future, think of how the room will present to prospective buyers. Not everyone in the market will have a baby, and even if they do, the likelihood that their styling taste will be the same as yours is minimal. So before you grab the paintbrush to start plastering the walls in rainbows and butterflies, consider this practical approach to nursery decoration, which will save you money in the long-term, and create a more desirable home when it comes time to sell.
Most mums begin thinking about nursery design as soon as they find out that they are pregnant, and often even earlier than that, but now that your little nugget of love is growing, it’s possible to be overwhelmed by the vast range of options available. What colours are stimulating for the baby’s development? Is Hello Kitty fashionable or tacky? Do I have to go blue for a boy or pink for a girl? To help you separate the on-trend from the tired, we have gathered sensible yet stunning design options, sweeping nurseries across the country right now, to help inspire while maintaining sophistication and salability in your home.
Look up! To keep the walls neutral and sophisticated, consider adding your pop of colour on the ceiling, with bold stripes or a playful pattern. It’s more affordable to decorate the ceiling than all four walls, and also easy to revert back to normal when it comes time to re-decorate or sell the home. Choosing primary colours will make the rest of the nursery a breeze to decorate, and is also very stimulating for baby’s learning. Think bright yellow stripes or spots for a girl or deep blue or red for a boy. By keeping the walls and carpet neutral, you can now make features out of artwork, toys and furniture in the room.
Go 3D Depth and texture not only creates stunning design features for your nursery, but it also increases your baby’s capacity to learn. Instead of a simple poster, consider creating your own artwork where you glue ABC blocks or fridge magnet numbers to a chalkboard. Instead of flat decals of butterflies, birds, bears or flowers, give the look more depth and texture by sticking 3D versions to the wall. Such as origami birds made from different
Who said a nursery had to be pastels and ducks… or owls…or bears for that matter? A glamourous nursery can be just as stimulating for baby’s development, and the design inspiration may just last through the ages with a few minor tweaks, although mostly suitable if you know you are having a girl. Pretty and chic, a simple palette which is easy to embellish with glitz. Start with black and white and add your feature pops of excitement from there. Go bold with your feature colour, such as lime green or deep pink. Think a feature wall of glittering silver sparkle stars, a drop crystal light fitting that showers the room in rainbows when the light hits it during the day, a glamourous feature chair in hot pink, comfortable enough for you to spend multiple feeding hours snuggled up on it, a chic black cot, a fluffy black rug and mirror decals on the opposite side of the room to the sparkle silver stars. Feature wall paper is now being created as self-adhesive and temporary, so can be easily changed as your child’s personal taste develops. If you love the design, so will your wee bundle of joy, and with bright pops of vivid colour, sparkles, texture and movement, it’s perfect for baby’s development.
Practical work space They don’t say that being a parent is hard work for nothing. To truly enjoy the space with your child, don’t forget to include practicalities that will help to make being mum or dad just that little bit easier. Don’t forget the big comfy rocking chair, you’ll be spending many, many hours in it settling your wee one back to sleep. Consider mood lighting or two different lighting solutions. One bright during change time, and a softer one for when you don’t want to wake bubs up. Remember to allow for plenty of room for your change table, with your storage of accessories close at hand. Consider constructing or buying a desk with multiple storage cubes and drawers attached. Very handy while bubs is little, and then can convert into a study desk as they start school. An organised and clutter-free room will help you to feel less stressed after a long day of tears and tantrums too. Above all have fun with the decorating of your nursery. Treat the nursery like you would the rest of your home; if you love modern design, go with it. Don’t feel the need to fit some old-fashioned criteria or other’s idea of what a nursery should be. You will be the one spending the most time in there, so create a space that you will love to be in.

Hot design secrets for winter coziness A s Willy winter embarks, temperatures outside drop, so it’s time to bring some warmth back into your home. Don’t dread the gloomy weather, as the famous “Let it Snow” lyrics suggest, embrace the chilly exterior to make your interior an inviting haven. Use these top design secrets to learn the best ways to cozy up for winter.
Create a heart of the home Winter is the perfect time of year to re-decorate your living space, as your interior needs change from season to season. Firstly establish where the heart of your home is. Where is the place where everyone gathers for warmth and conversation?

Usually this area is in the room where the fireplace is, so make a focal point of the hearth. If you have a heat-pump, and honestly the focal point of your home is the television, then embrace this. Often people tend to decorate around the edges of their rooms, with the couch on one side and television on the other. Use winter to get snuggly with each other. Move the seats into the middle of the room, toward the hearth or television. Adorn the seating arrangement with some plush cushions and warm throws and you have an intimate and warm entertaining area for the colder months. Don’t forget a soft rug underfoot to keep the feet toasty warm. The rug also provides an intimate area of relaxation for when the flames are flickering that little bit hotter.

With a tendency to over-neutralise our spaces, nothing says cold and dreary like wide open neutral walls and flooring. By adding some pops of cheery colour, you can transform your room from cool to cozy. A new rug is often the best place to start, as it’s easy to then pick accessories to match, a new lamp, new cushions and bright, bold snuggly throws. For a unique style statement, layer one rug on top of another to add more
Pick a colour that you like. Close your eyes and imagine being warm. If the first thing you think of it being on a tropical beach, then look for bright blue teamed with bold yellow to add colour and cheer. If you think of a roaring fire, then accessorise with rich wood grains and deep oranges. If romance and long weekend sleep-ins is top of mind, then red is the colour for you. Be bold, and if the mood takes you, consider a feature wall in your colour of choice, using wallpaper with texture to add a point of interest to your room. Achieve two in one by adding quality thermal-backed drapes into your main rooms of comfort. Not only will the thermal properties make your room physically warmer, but when matched with your chosen warming colour points, the drapes will instantly improve the appearance of the space. Drapes have come a long way in the past ten years, so be sure to pop into your local interior specialist to see the vast range of stunning patterns and textures now available.
Embrace the classic winter character Just because we’re trying to keep the cold out doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t bring some classic winter design influence in. A pair of vintage skis in the corner of the room can add an interesting design note. Pinecones are a classic winter symbol, the smell alone can foster old memories of fossicking under trees for the old wood fire, and they don’t have to look ugly. Select tidy pinecones and use spray paint to paint a few of your pinecones and arrange neatly. It’s an in-expensive way to add a focal design point to your room, which is sure to be a conversation starter. A glass-top vintage table is the perfect blank canvas to insert some winter memorabilia. Fill with vintage-
look winter-themed post cards along with some family snaps of winter holiday adventures in the snow. A cute personal touch to add warmth into your room. Use the table beside a warm window with a cute vintage seat for a place to enjoy a rich coffee in the morning, or use it as a decorative table with a winter inspired ornament on top, such as a bowl or sculpture made from bare branches and white winter frosting.
As we try to capture every piece of light and warmth available during daylight hours, use a large mirror to fill in a blank piece of wall. Ideally this will be opposite a part of the home that light streams into, so the mirror will double the effectiveness of the natural light. Choose a mirror with a large frame and colour the frame to match your warming colour palette.
Snuggle up for sleep-ins It’s no secret, we sleep in longer during the winter months because the bed is so warm and inviting, so take the opportunity to maximise the potential of your bedroom. Give your bedroom a warm makeover by layering textures on the bed for added warmth. Start with two velvet pillowcases for a feel that your face will love you for. Quality thread-count sheets topped with a Marino wool blanket, finally a cashmere throw on top will feel like pure heaven. Heat soy melts or scented candles in warm scents such as vanilla to indulge your senses and boost the romantic bliss of the room. A sheepskin rug on the floor adds another layer of warmth and boosts the romantic feel of the décor. No matter what Mother Nature throws at you this winter, use your home as a sanctuary of warmth and love. Embrace the cozy evenings indoors and use the inspiration to learn some new skills, such as knitting or baking. A batch of chocolate chip cookies accompanied by a rich mug of hot chocolate will go a long way toward making your home a warm wonderland this winter.

Snapchat privacy a By Vaughan Elder
A University of Otago gender studies lecturer has applauded Facebook for removing a page which displayed intimate photos of Dunedin students. It comes amid concern over “babe of the day” Facebook pages, especially after the phenomenon spread to Dunedin high school pupils. The page displaying intimate images of Otago University students, called “Otago Uni Leaked Snapchats”, took advantage of a smartphone app called Snapchat, which allows people to send images and video to other users and set a time limit of up to 10 seconds for how long they can be viewed. However, some users have found ways to get around the time limit by taking screen shots of the images. Some of these photos - including some containing nudity - have ended up online, including on numerous Facebook pages centred around images of students at different New Zealand universities. Many of these pages, including the Otago University one - which
had more than 3500 “likes” before it was taken down - have since been removed down by Facebook. Otago University gender studies lecturer Dr Lesley Procter said she was pleased Facebook had taken the page down, but that its existence raised wider issues about both sexism and privacy online. Putting up images people did not intend to end up in the public domain was a “gross invasion of privacy” and had the ability to cause a lot of distress, Dr Procter said. “It moves very easily into cyber bullying, there is a very fine line between putting up a photo of someone as a prank and actually bullying,” she said. While she viewed the Snapchat page as a “a bit more malicious”, the “babe of the day” sites also raised concerns when the images were posted without consent. Both also encouraged the “sexual objectification of women”, which had long been an issue in other media forms. The pages also showed the need to be careful when posting images online, especially if they were of an intimate nature.
“Anyone who puts anything up on the internet has to be aware that there is the possibility that someone will take that image and use it inappropriately.” The page’s creator, a second year commerce student at Otago University who wished to remain anonymous, said it was “just for laughs” and a “copy cat” of similar sites. Asked about the response to the
Dotcom slams myth ‘data massacre’
page, the person said “Not many bad responses, few people unhappy about a picture posted of them but I delete the photo straight away and the people are happy.” When asked about the page being removed, a spokeswoman for Facebook said “Nothing is more important to Facebook than the safety of the people that use our site.” “Our Statement of Rights and
Responsibilities forbids content that includes pornography, bullying, and actionable threats of violence and we will remove any content reported to us that violates these policies,” she said. Meanwhile, the Dunedin high school “babe of the day” page remained online yesterday, with the photo and name of another Dunedin pupil posted to the page. - ODT
