Giant Easter egg hunt a fundraiser They could be hidden in the park, down an alleyway or staring you right in the face. One hundred giant eggs were hidden in secret locations throughout Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch to kickstart an Easter egg hunt. Dozens of volunteers helped to hide the eggs – which have been decorated by people including Dick Frizzell, Dame Trelise Cooper and Colin Mathura-Jeffree – for the Whittaker’s Big Egg Hunt that runs until April 22. It supports the Starship Foundation, a charity supporting the national children’s hospital. Each egg has a unique code on it that can be texted in to win the overall prize, a 340g 18ct Whittaker’s Gold Slab made by Partridge Jewellers.

Nanny hired ahead of royal tour William and Kate have announced the appointment of a new nanny for Prince George ahead of the upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand. Kensington Palace said yesterday Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo had recently started working with the family and confirmed she would accompany the Duke and Duchess and their son on the 10-day trip next month. Ms Borrallo trained at the respected Norland College and her duties will include looking after George while his parents are away on planned visits to Queenstown, New Zealand and Uluru in Australia during the tour.

Humans are good smellers We may not compete with Lassie, but humans have a greatly underestimated sense of smell, new research has shown. In fact, scientists now believe the human nose can sniff the difference between one trillion different odours – probably more. Previously, experts thought for decades that we could discriminate between 10,000 smells at the most. The figure is cited in scientific journals and quoted in popular magazines, but the estimate, made in the 1920s, was more of a guess than a scientific finding. “Our analysis shows that the human capacity for discriminating smells is much larger than anyone anticipated,” said Dr Leslie Vosshall, from Howard Hughes Medical Institute in the US, who co-led the new study. “I hope our paper will overturn this terrible reputation that humans have for not being good smellers.”

Salt and obesity ageing link Obese teenagers who eat a lot of salty food may be getting old before their time, a study suggests. Scientists found evidence the teenagers’ cells were ageing more quickly than those of overweight teens who consumed less salt, or slimmer individuals. “Lowering sodium intake, especially if you are overweight or obese, may slow down the cellular ageing process that plays an important role in the development of heart disease,” said lead scientist Dr Haidong Zhu, from Georgia Regents University in Augusta, US. The findings are based on a study of telomeres, protective caps on the ends of chromosomes that shorten as we age. Telomeres have been compared with the plastic tips that stop shoelaces fraying. When they get too short, cells become inactive or die. Research has shown that the speed of telomere shortening can vary between individuals, corresponding to different rates of biological ageing.

Jockey put back into coma By Erin TaskEr

A jockey seriously injured in an accident during an Ashburton race meeting a week ago woke from her coma on Thursday, but has been put back under. Ashley Frye was flown to Christchurch Hospital follow-

ing the accident 150 metres from the starting gates in a race a week ago yesterday, when her mount Zuleika stumbled and fell following what was later discovered to have been a ruptured artery. The horse had to be put down. Frye – a promising up and

coming jockey - was in an induced coma in Christchurch Hospital and was known to have a broken collar bone and a fractured vertebrae at the top of her neck. South Island racing’s chief steward Nigel McIntyre said he understood Frye had woken

from her coma on Thursday but was put back into an induced coma as her recovery continued. “By all accounts when she came out she recognised the family and they were talking to her,” Mr McIntyre said. It had been a long week for the family, and for the extended

‘family’ which was the racing industry, but they were buoyed by positive signs. “You wouldn’t wish it on any family but they will stay strong and the racing fraternity will gather around them. The racing industry are a very close knit fraternity,” he said.


Official opening follows a long gestation By MichEllE nElson

The story of Valetta Irrigation has been a long time in the pipeline, chairman Alistair Morrison told those gathered at the Lagmhor Westerfield Hall yesterday, at the official opening of the piped scheme. Mr Morrison said the proposal to pipe the scheme was first suggested in 2007 during an informal meeting. The following year Aqualinc Research came on board to evaluate the proposal, and found 37 per cent (1.2 cumecs) of the water entering the open race was wasted, worth about $14.4 million annually. This equated to almost half the $31 million price tag, and the decision to proceed was made, with the rest of the scheme funded by the 41 shareholders. “Looking back it was an embarrassment,” Mr Morrison said. Gerard van den Bosch, general manager of Aquaduct and Bosch Irrrigation, put together a proposal to import extruders from China and incorporate hydro-generation into the scheme. Aquaduct set up on site to

manufacture the pipes, and Bosch Irrigation installed them. When installed the turbines will generate about 2.2 megawatts of electricity – or enough to power 1000 households. Productive land had been reclaimed from filling in the open

races, and Valetta Irrigation had installed nine fire hydrants along the scheme. Mr Morrison said other advantages of the piped scheme were the reduced fire risk from more irrigated land, increased productivity, the ability to sell

water, and from a farmer’s point of view to be able to turn water on and off via their smart phones. The scheme was switched on in October. Yesterday committee members, shareholders and contrac-

In brief

February sales take a dip By Sue NewmaN

Continuing competition in the late night market saw sales at the Ashburton Trust dip in February. After months where trading figures continued to climb, in February the Trust watched sales drop 1 per cent, to $1.4 million from the same month in 2013. Over the past 11 months

of the trading year, however, sales were up 1 per cent on the same period to $16.4 million. The increase was driven by a 3 per cent increase in accommodation and 2 per cent in offlicence sales. While accommodation sales continued to hold up well with good forward bookings, Trust chief executive Giles Beal said there would be increased

competition from Christchurch over the next two years as more providers came back into the market. “This is expected to provide some challenges,” he said. The late night market would continue to present challenges, he said, because of the greater number of outlets and a changing regulatory environment. “Management is exploring an

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 to address this are limited,” Mr Beal said. Cash flow remained strong and the management team was looking at a number of re-investment options, he said.


A New Zealand woman has escaped a militant attack in a Kabul hotel in which nine people died. The four gunmen, who were said to be teenagers, broke into the five-star Serena Hotel in the Afghan capital with pistols hidden in their socks. They attacked diners in one of the hotel restaurants. Foreign media initially reported a New Zealander was among the dead. But the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) last night confirmed that while a New Zealand woman was in the hotel, she was not one of the casualties. She was the only New Zealander known to be at the hotel, an MFAT spokesman said. - APNZ

Generous donations

Gold medallist special guest at two schools Olympic gold medallist rower Hamish Bond shows off his medal during his visit to Rakaia Primary School yesterday. Bond was in town as the special guest for the inaugural Rakaia Sports Awards on Thursday night and called in at Dorie and Rakaia schools yesterday. He spoke of his rowing career, Olympic glory and answered some questions from the children as well as having some questions for them as well. Bond was taken aback by some of the answers he got from his nutrition question, “what type of foods should you eat?”, when he received an answer of protein, grains and white meat which he described as “the most educated response he had ever had” to the question. The 28-year-old attended Chertsey Primary and recalled an incident at a sports day at Rakaia School involving one of the trees but wasn’t sure what haunted him more, the incident or that it was 20 years ago.

Kelleigh Burkett, 41, is desperately fundraising to try to get accepted for experimental drug trials in Australia which could buy her more precious time in creating a lifetime of memories for her children. Her goal was to raise $10,000. But in just a few hours yesterday, thousands of dollars’ worth of donations flooded in.

Claims of illegal industrial waste dumping by a contractor on earthquake-damaged residential red zone land are being investigated, authorities confirmed yesterday. A joint investigation by the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (Cera), ECan and the Christchurch City Council is under way. On average, two rubbish dumping sites are found each day, Cera said. It can range from household waste to trailerloads of industrial waste and concrete slurry. - APNZ


Safari a blast from the past for many enthusiasts The inaugural Hakatere 4WD Safari will be a blast from the past for the many enthusiasts set to turn out on Sunday. The 55km round trip begins at Barrosa and travels up the Stour River Valley with lunch at the remote Manuka Lake. Drivers will then travel past Double Hut and the Swin River, around the back of Sugarloaf and exit out the top of Lake Heron through Lake Heron Station. The event is a joint fundraiser for the restoration of the historic buildings at Hakatere corner and between the Hakatere Heritage Committee and the local 4WD group. Chairman David Howden

said the safari route was rich in history. “When Leach, Potts and Philips first searched for grazing land in 1857 they travelled up the Rakaia River but not finding any easy country in the headwaters, they turned south to follow Lake Stream,” he said. “This brought them to a lake with numerous kotuku/white heron around the shore. Potts was so fascinated that he named it Lake Heron. “After exploring the tussock lands of the Hakatere Basin, Potts chose to claim the south western area around lakes Camp and Clearwater while Leach favoured Lake Heron. Returning to Christchurch

via Mount Somers they filed their respective claims.” For those keen to take part in the first 4WD event of its kind, a high clearance vehicle will be needed, although the route is regarded as relatively easy. Vehicles will travel in convoy with planned stops along the way. A commentary is available by using a radio tuned into an allocated station. Spark arresters are required and may be purchased on the day. Registration is at 8am at Barrosa which is 15km up the Ashburton Gorge Road from Mount Somers. Cost per vehicle is $65 with the cancellation date being April 6.

Chocolate fan Bob lands Fears over himself tasty dream job wi-fi effects

on children quashed



A cake of black forest chocolate has won an Ashburton pensioner the opportunity of a lifetime. After spending his working life as a traffic officer, Mr Maxwell has won himself a new job for the next few months. He’s going to be a Cadbury chocolate taster – a job many would class as their dream job. Mr Maxwell found out about his win at the same time as the rest of the country – when his name popped up on the television screen at the end of Thursday night’s episode of Cadbury Dream Factory on TV3. “A lady called last week and she said to watch the chocolate thing (on Thursday night),” Mr Maxwell said. “Nobody was more surprised than I was when my name came up on the television screen.” The prize includes $10,000 cash – which Mr Maxwell and his wife Mary plan to put in the bank – a job as a chocolate taster over the coming months, and a trip to the Cadbury factory in Dunedin where he’ll watch the annual Jaffa race down the world’s steepest street, and come up with his own chocolate creation. Mr Maxwell is one of seven chocolate tasters who will win the rare opportunity to get sneak preview tastes of new Cadbury products before they hit the shelves over the next couple of years. He’s likely to be one of the older chocolate tasters, with two of the earlier winners be-

ing just teenagers, although Mr Maxwell won’t reveal his actual age. “I’m over 70, put it that way,” he said. He likes his chocolate and remembers entering the competition through a cake of Cadbury’s black forest chocolate he purchased. “We buy a bit of chocolate, not a lot of chocolate. It’s mainly blocks of chocolate as a treat.” Last week’s phone call tell-

ing him to watch on Thursday night made him suspicious. He thought maybe he’d won some chocolate; he never expected to win what he did. He’s now looking forward to the chocolate that’s going to arrive on his doorstep over the coming months for him to give the taste test. But he’s also got his thinking cap on trying to come up with the kind of chocolate he might create during his trip to Dunedin in July.

Any concern over the effects of school wi-fi on children’s health has been quashed. It is a relieving yet unsurprising result from a Ministry of Health snapshot study, Mid Canterbury principals say, many who run schools that heavily rely on wireless internet. Associate Health Minister Jo Goodhew confirmed this week wi-fi in schools does not pose a health risk to children or staff, with exposures many thousands of times lower than the relevant standard. “The report covers a snapshot study carried out following concerns from some schools and parents over whether exposure to radio frequency fields produced by wi-fi could cause health problems, particularly in young children,” Mrs Goodhew said. Two wi-fi-enabled New Zealand primary schools took part in the study with the results compared to the current New Zealand Standards for exposure to radio frequency fields and international research. “Generally, exposures were 10,000 times lower than the level specified for the public by the


Standard. At their maximum, exposures were approximately 4000 times lower than the standard,” says Mrs Goodhew. Mid Canterbury’s 23 schools all have access to ultrafast broadband thanks to an EA Networks initiative, meaning most schools use wireless internet to run laptops and other electronic devices. Mid Canterbury Principals’ Association president Chris Murphy said he was not surprised by the study’s finding, saying schools were unlikely to use wi-fi if it was widely believed it posed a health risk. “Without wi-fi, schools would be pretty hamstrung. With all the devices used at the moment its just as necessary as the tools themselves. You really need wifi if you want that flexibility in schools.” Mrs Goodhew said the study also measured exposure from laptops, and found on average it was 100,000 times lower than the standard. The results indicated typically devices were transmitting for less than 18 seconds an hour in total. “These levels are similar to what a person would be exposed to when walking down a main city street,” she said.

Firefighter gets his QSM By Erin TaskEr

Chris Price has been looking after himself the past few weeks to make sure he was fit and healthy for an important trip to Wellington this week. Mr Price received a Queen’s Service Medal in this year’s New Year’s Honours for his long involvement in the New Zealand Fire Service and on Thursday he was officially presented with his medal at a ceremony at Government House, by Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae. It was an amazing experience; one Mr Price was lucky to be there for, following a motorbike crash a few weeks ago which landed him in hospital. Mr Price is still off work as he recovers from the crash, which saw him break ribs and take a decent knock to the head. He can’t remember anything about the crash, but yesterday’s

Accused discharged By Jimmy Ellingham Stephen Dudley’s father Brent often gets up on the morning and visualises his son emerging from his bedroom. But memories are all the devastated Auckland family is left with after Stephen, 15, died following a rugby training session on June 6 last year. A 16-year-old, whose name is suppressed, was yesterday discharged without conviction on an assault charge and given no further penalty. The 16-yearold admitted that charge after a count of manslaughter was withdrawn. Following the sentencing in the High Court at Auckland, an upset looking Mr Dudley and his wife Mona emerged from court. “Clearly there’s no winners here today,” Mr Dudley said. “Its just one very very sad family. With actions should come consequences and maybe that didn’t happen today.” The court heard Stephen was struck by the 16-year-old and, allegedly, an older teen who is also said to have struck a blow to Stephen’s neck. Stephen did not throw a punch himself. He had an undiagnosed heart condition that made him especially vulnerable. Justice Helen Winklemann said the 16-year-old had already been held to account for his actions. - APNZ

experience will stick in his mind forever. It was his first time at Government House and while it was a formal ceremony, how casual Sir Jerry Mateparae was, was refreshing. Mr Price was joined in Wellington by his wife Jeanette, his son Andrew – also a firefighter – and his in-laws. Following the investiture ceremony Mr Price and five other members of the New Zealand Fire Service who were also honoured, were treated to a luncheon by the New Zealand Fire Service which featured an appearance by Peter Dunne – the Minister for Internal Affairs. Members of the Ashburton Volunteer Fire Brigade last night gathered at the Ashburton Fire Station to celebrate Mr Price’s achievement. “We don’t get many QSMs in the fire brigade,” Mr Price said.

Rotorua police are investigating the incident and have arrested the patient the ambulance officer was trying to assist. - APNZ

Unique opportunity to get up close and personal with tenor By Erin TaskEr

Former Ashburton man Simon O’Neill is a world class tenor who is about to come back to Christchurch to perform for one night only. In 2009, London’s The Telegraph called him the best heroic tenor to emerge over the last decade and now Canterbury audiences are preparing themselves for a one-nightonly event featuring their home-grown star. O’Neill is taking time out of his demanding international concert schedule to perform in a one-off event on April 3. He’ll take audiences on an intimate journey through his life and career in a live, interview-style event, hosted by the Christchurch City Choir’s former music director of 22 years, Brian Law. Anecdotes and personal insights from his extraordinary life story will be punctuated by live performances, as Simon sings from some of his favourite operatic arias. From Ashburton piano lessons with Mrs Perkins at the age of 8, to principal artist with Metropolitan Opera, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and Teatro alla Scala, O’Neill has earned critical ac-

The 7-year-old has had a 10-hour operation to begin to repair the facial wounds she received during the attack two weeks ago. It was the first reconstructive operation in what is expected to be a “very, very long recovery process” into her adulthood. Kyoko Austin said the Japanese community wanted to raise funds that will go directly in supporting Sakurako and her family. “We have made 1000 origami cranes, it’s a traditional gift for someone who is sick and is needing peace,” she said. “Every time we make one we say a prayer.” - APNZ

Bringing surgery to rural areas By Toni Williams

It rolls into town at night like a caped crusader and unfolds itself like a transformer. By the morning its doors open for those with an appointment, giving access to people most in need. It is the Mobile Surgical Unit: A 42-tonne blue and yellow 20m truck and trailer unit that parks up outside the Ashburton Hospital outpatients department every five weeks. The unit operates three weeks in the North Island and two weeks in the South Island. It is driven in roster by two drivers. To the unsuspecting, the unit is a fancy truck and trailer unit. But in that rear container is a well hidden facility. A fully equipped operating theatre, complete with administration/staff room, waiting area, scrub room, operating room, clean room (sterilisation) and dirty rooms (instrument cleaning) and a recovery room.

It is just like the tardis – small on the outside but amazingly spacious and roomy on the inside. The theatre staff do simple elective day surgery procedures where patients are treated and, after recovery, home by tea time. Ashburton Hospital clinical nurse leader mobile surgical services Liz Grant travels with the unit for one week, every five weeks. Mrs Grant is rostered to cover the East Coast of the North Island. She enjoys the experience, travels independently of the truck and gets to see the countryside. “It’s a very good service for the community, in all the areas it covers,” she said. Without the facility Mid Cantabrians would wait longer to be seen in the city. Mrs Grant said each of the 23 destinations on the unit’s route was staffed by hospital personnel from that area – except for the clinical team leaders who

were sourced from around the country and rostered to work. All Ashburton Hospital staff are fully trained in operating procedures. The bus is privately owned

by Mobile Health Solutions and works in partnership with the Ministry of Health, District Health Boards and other health providers. The service delivers low risk

elective day surgery to rural New Zealanders. It has been in operation since 2002, and more than 14,000 patients have benefitted throughout the country.

Jade bids for new initiative By Erin TaskEr

An Ashburton entrepreneur is one of six finalists competing for a share of a $25,000 cash prize that will enable her to reach her goal. Ashburton mum Jade Temepara, who founded Hand Over A Hundy, is up against five other entrepreneurs from around New Zealand for the new initiative from Seddon winemaker Peter Yealands which aims to reward enterprising Kiwis. The finalists all emulate the Kiwi ‘number eight wire’ attitude that has enabled New Zealanders to succeed. Ms Temepara believes that anyone is capable of learning to live a more sustainable and productive life and in 2011 she established the not-for-profit organisation Hand Over A Hundy. With $100, she mentors and teaches families, schools and other organisations how to grow their own fresh produce in their own backyard. Founder of Yealands Family Wines, Peter Yealands, knows all too well how difficult it can be to succeed against the odds. The third generation Marlbor-

ough resident built his iconic Seaview vineyard from scratch. Now it is one of the most sustainable in the world and his wines have won more than 500 awards since launch. “We’ve achieved a number of world firsts in sustainable winegrowing with innovative thinking and a ‘can-do’ attitude and I wanted to support innovation in other New Zealanders,” Mr Yealands said. “We came up with the Raise a Glass to Success initiative because we saw a link between celebrating achievement and the traditional toast to success we associate with special occasions”. Other finalists include Aucklander Dave Williams, who aims to be the first to climb the highest mountain in each of the seven continents from the closest sea, to raise awareness and $100,000 for men’s mental health. In Christchurch, Juliet Arnold has launched Rekindle, a social enterprise which uses waste wood and other materials sourced from houses in the red zone to create furniture and jewellery. There is also a $5000 prize, to contribute towards others’

Multi-Cultural Bite team vies for top honour The team behind Ashburton’s successful Multi-Cultural Bite festival will vie for national honours in Invercargill this weekend. They were the winners of the local TrustPower Community Awards and this weekend they’re joining with the country’s other regional winners to

compete for the top honour at the TrustPower National Community Awards. They’ll give an eight minute presentation on what they’ve done and will be judged on that, along with a written summary of their work. The awards - the country’s largest recognition programme

Full ACC payout for epi-pen

for voluntary groups and organisations - are being hosted by the Invercargill City and the Southland District councils. The community awards programme recognises voluntary groups and organisations and is run in 26 regions around New Zealand in conjunction with local city and district councils.

The supreme winners from each of the regional Community Awards held during 2013, as well as council representatives and invited guests attend the three-day awards event. The winner will be announced tonight in a presentation at the Civic Theatre in Invercargill.

Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) has reimbursed the full cost of a used epi-pen to allergy sufferer Ann McKay. Mrs McKay recently discovered that ACC could reimburse some costs but this week she received the full amount of her used Epi-pen. It was the first time in 10 years the Ashburton woman had heard reimbursement was an option through the corporation. She said people needed proof from their doctor that they needed an Epi-pen, or auto injectors, for anaphylaxis relief. They also needed the original receipt for the Epi-pen, and an ACC number after an episode. The cost of Epi-pens were around $160. Usually, people were aware they had an underlying allergy and were prone to anaphylaxis if exposed to allergens. As a result, they carried an adrenaline auto-injector to manage any anaphylaxis. There were thousands of people nationwide affected by allergies. Anaphylaxis was the serious and life-threatening allergic reaction to a substance – often food, insect bite or sting but different people had intolerances to a range of substances. An injection of adrenaline stopped the reaction instantly. But it had to be administered within minutes of symptoms occurring. ACC only considered reimbursement on used adrenaline auto-injectors, not those stored and expired.

Dotcom still defiant BY PATRICE DOUGAN AND TEUILA FUATAI March 21 - Internet mogul Kim Dotcom says he will not give up fighting his extradition battle against the United States despite the case suffering a major blow yesterday. An appeal by Dotcom’s lawyers, arguing for access to all the FBI investigation files before his extradition hearing, was dismissed by the Supreme Court at Wellington today. But the Mega millionaire said he will not be defeated. Following the decision Dotcom posted a message to his 354,000 followers on Twitter. “Being defeated is often a

temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent,” he said. The defiant message came shortly after a sad-faced emoticon, tweeted immediately after the ruling was announced. Dotcom, Finn Batato, Mathias Ortmann and Bram van der Kolk are defending charges of mass copyright infringement, online piracy, and money laundering. Yesterday’s judgment comes after the Court of Appeal reversed a decision by the District Court to allow Dotcom the documents. The District Court decision had been upheld by the High Court, however Dotcom’s lawyers were granted leave to

seek an appeal in the Supreme Court after the Court of Appeal reversed the decision. “The District Court was wrong to order disclosure of the documents concerned,” Justice John McGrath said yesterday. “The appeal has been dismissed and costs have been reserved.” The District Court had “no power” to order the US to disclose information, the Supreme Court ruled, saying no argument had been put forward to “suggest that exceptional circumstances exist that would warrant a formal request” for further information from the US authorities. - APNZ

It is fair to say Ashburton bank worker Hugh Copland has not forgotten his roots. The ANZ agri relationships manager joined 11 colleagues, as well as parents, pupils and staff yesterday at Chertsey School to give it a much-needed spruce up. The working bee saw the volunteers take care of the school’s gardens and finish off a wall mural as part of an ANZ initiative to help out local schools. But for Mr Copland it was also a prime opportunity to give back to the place where he started his schooling back in

the 1990s. “It’s really good to be able to give back, I have some fond memories here with the Chertsey School pet days and inter-school sports,” he said. For principal Kerrin Lester, it was an opportunity to take care of business the school has not been able to attend to as it charges on with its busy schedule. “It’s a good chance to take care of the summer growth before we head into winter,” she said. The ANZ team have previously done work at Mt SomersSpringburn School and will head to Longbeach School in a fortnight’s time.

Mental health a growing problem in Ashburton A

35 per cent increase in people seeking Ashburton’s mental health service in 12 months has seen a clinician added to the district’s team. Canterbury District Health Board general manager mental health, Toni Gutschlag, said demand was substantial in Ashburton. It had increased Canterbury wide. Across the region, the Canterbury District Health Board is reviewing its mental health services and has put a number of priority areas under review. One area was to look at how they could reduce waiting times for services and use staff more efficiently. They were looking at targeting people who were most likely to benefit from help. The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand said that “nearly 50 per cent of the population will be personally affected by mental illness at some point in their life, and one in five people will have been affected in the last 12 months”. Two of the most common forms of mental illness are anxiety and depression. Ms Gutschlag said 35 per cent over a year was a “big increase” but with the addition

The number of people seeking care in Ashburton for mental health issues has grown considerably and the increase has meant an extra staff member has been employed. Health reporter Toni Williams reports. of another clinician in Ashburton, the team were meeting the needs of the community. “These figures will include people with co-existing mental health and alcohol and drug issues.” There is a separate service in Ashburton for people with alcohol and drug issues called the Ashburton Community Alcohol and Drug Service (Acads). In Christchurch the demand on mental health services was compounded by a limited supply of suitable housing for the service’s clients. These people were being kept hospitalised until suitable housing became available. By mid-February, there were 23 in-patients looking for accommodation. Even those under the care of mental health services, but living independently, were housed in non-ideal situations. The living conditions of 84 people were described as unsuitable, unsafe or homeless. The DHB had no intention

of increasing its number of residential services, preferring to support people in their own homes. But due to the lack of affordable housing in the city, it has increased its investment in housing options. This included the provision of respite beds to help keep services flowing through inpatient and residential services. Ashburton does not have the same issues. The earthquakes have caused accommodation difficulties in Christchurch, but Ms Gutschlag said this had not stopped people in Ashburton being released from hospital. “Since the earthquakes (people) are having a greater difficulty accessing suitable accommodation for all small groups of clients, mostly because of the increasing costs of rental accommodation. “However, they have not seen an increase in delayed discharge from Ashburton Hospital as a result of accom-

modation issues.” Other areas under review by the Canterbury District Health Board include the home-based support service and looking to provide some consistency around access to this service. Youth mental health providers will be “upskilled” and given more training as well. There was also going to be more alcohol and drug services available for offenders and an increased presence of mental health clinicians in the courts. Mental health activity in the major services across Canterbury has increased by 12 per cent a year, for the past two years. There has also been an increase in new people to Psychiatric Emergency, which had 25 per cent more people than this time last year. The DHB says the increase is consistent with research suggesting there is always a rise with mental health issues three years after a major disaster.

HELP IS OUT THERE The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand specialises in mental health promotion trying to support a society free from discrimination. Suicide prevention is a core focus of their work. They have free information available to any New Zealander on depression awareness, youth mental health, social inclusion and discrimination, older people’s mental health and workplace mental health. They can be contacted through their website www.mentalhealth. ■

Environment Canterbury in Ashburton Water quality and quantity the focus of Hinds recommendations A package of 43 recommendations on the water quality and quantity of the Hinds catchment was delivered to Environment Canterbury recently. The recommendations from the Ashburton Zone Committee and the community are considered a significant contribution towards the achievement of the Canterbury Water Management Strategy (CWMS) targets. The recommendations are that farmers need to progressively reduce the level of nitrates discharged into the water bodies over the next 20 years. All farmers need to reach industry 'good management practice' level by 2017 and dairy and dairy support going beyond good practice by 2020. In addition, the committee has recommended that a trial takes place on whether groundwater can be recharged with Healthy Economy Up to 30,000 ha new irrigation low nutrient water to $104 million GDP 232 new jobs dilute the concentration Healthy Healthy Spring-fed Community Improve of nitrate (to achieve an waterbodies the quality of current Annual median 6.9 mg drinking water average concentration of N/L by 2040 Improved manage the risk flows Maintain recreation 6.9 mgN/L).

Native plant buffer to protect important science reserve

The Hinds catchment is one of the most productive in Canterbury although the water resources are under pressure. Trends in nitrate levels are increasing and groundwater levels in the lower catchment have declined in recent years. Setting these will take time and will need to involve users and stakeholders. The recommendations are for the establishment of a Hinds Working Party to assist the zone committee to develop surface water allocations and minimum flows. Once the Ashburton Zone Implementation Programme Addendum is received by both Environment Canterbury and Ashburton District Council, the Hinds sub-regional section will be prepared as a variation to the Land & Water Regional Plan. This Resource Management Act process will involve notification of the variation to the Plan, a call for submissions, followed by a public hearing run by a panel of independent hearing commissioners, before recommended changes are made to Environment Canterbury. The process is expected to run later this year before a final version of the variation is ready.

Work has begun on planting a buffer of native vegetation to manage weeds at the Harris Scientific Reserve. The planting by Ashburton Community Conservation Trust around the existing remnant will improve its chances of survival as it is under threat from fire, accidental incursion by stock, and pests such as rabbits, hares and possums. Conservation Trust Chair Edith Smith says the support from volunteers is invaluable but they are always keen for another pair of hands. “Our many volunteers are invaluable to the site and about 700 hours are worked annually by those willing people. However sometimes there are difficulties organising volunteer teams when particular work such as weeding and spraying is required. “We appreciate Immediate Steps funding for plants which will be planted in September as part of a public planting day”.

Public submissions on Environment Canterbury’s draft Annual Plan are open until 14 April 2014. We are very much on track to fulfil the objectives we set two years ago in the Long-Term Plan 2012-2022 and are only proposing minor changes to the draft Annual Plan for the coming year. For example, we are proposing that some of our activities previously funded by user-pays charges, such as water-science investigations, will be met by rates.

The Ashburton Community Conservation Trust meets regularly with volunteers at the reserve on a Thursday morning for a working bee. If you would like to be part of the volunteer group please contact Edith Smith on 03 308 4440.

To learn more about funding available for biodiversity projects, please contact Biodiversity Officer Jodi Rees on 027 225 6396.

Nearly $10,000 of Immediate Steps funding has been approved by the zone committee for planting of native vegetation at the Harris Scientific Reserve.

What do you think of our plans?

This work has previously been supported by the Living Legends Programme as well as funding through Environment Canterbury and the Ashburton District Council. In November 2013 the Ashburton Zone Committee approved $9800 of funding through the Immediate Steps Programme to support the work of the Ashburton Community Conservation Trust at the Reserve. The money will go towards planting locally sourced native plants, including kanuka, as well as labour to maintain the significant amount of work that has taken place at the reserve already.

As winter approaches, it is time to start thinking about keeping warm. It's also the time to start thinking about protecting the health of everyone in the community by improving the quality of the air we breathe.

To use cloth or disposable Deciding whether to choose disposable or cloth nappies can be a headache for parents keen to save money and do their bit for the environment. But as Lydia Anderson and Erin Tasker report, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing.

Smelly statistics


t’s an unavoidable part of child rearing - buying, cleaning or disposing of nappies. A huge amount of disposable nappies end up in landfill each year and can make a fair impact on the wallet if used as a sole solution. Although many parents are curious about using eco-friendly products, a 2013 Canstar Blue survey of parents showed less than half thought it was important for their own families. The survey showed about one-in-five parents mostly used cloth nappies because of cost consciousness and eco-friendly concerns. As Cloth Nappy Week (23-30 March) approaches, the ‘Nappy Lady’ Kate Meads is on a mission to inform parents about the benefits of using cloth nappies. Ms Meads says close to a million disposable nappies end up in New Zealand landfills each day, based on a conservative estimate of 145,000 children under twoand-a-half using six disposable nappies a day. The figures do not

include products used to combat bedwetting in older children, or adult incontinence products. “Over the past nine years since I had my son, the number of new disposable products available to new parents is amazing,’’ she says. “It is also scary to think there are so many more new convenience products that are going into landfills after a single use.’’ The amount of waste inspired the creation of a recycling company Envirocomp, based in Christchurch and Wellington, which recycles nappies and other sanitary products. Envirocomp’s website says sanitary hygiene products represent around 3 per cent of landfill waste nationwide - about 96,000 tonnes each year.

Weighing up the cost


hen you’re a family with five children, anything you can do to save a bit of money is a bonus. That’s one of the main reasons Ashburton mum Monique Rouxel has used cloth nappies for all five of her girls. The oldest of her children is now seven and the youngest is just five months, so for almost eight years without a break,

she’s had at least one child in nappies. She uses disposables at night, but during the day it’s cloth nappies all the way, meaning Monique and partner Matiu Andrews have probably saved thousands of dollars over the years. A 2009 Consumer New Zealand report found cloth nappies were the cheaper option and using them fulltime until a baby was two-and-a-half could cost $700 for a traditional nappy through to about $2200 for fitted cloth nappies in two sizes. In comparison, disposable nappies would cost about $4100 over the same period, Consumer NZ found. Mrs Rouxel said she’d always used cloth nappies so knew no different. “You just have to get yourself into a routine. People say I can’t be bothered washing them and things like that, but you save so much money,” she said. Cloth nappies do need to be washed and they need to be changed more frequently than disposables, but the work is worth it in the long run. Ms Meads said families could save about $4000 per child by using cloth nappies, but they didn’t have to be a complete solution. Continued next page

es ... What is the answer?

Cloth nappies might be a bit more work than disposable nappies, but they’re more environmentally friendly and families can save $4000 per child.

Some people used disposable nappies for convenience when out and about, and use cloth nappies at home. “If every baby in nappies in New Zealand used just one cloth nappy each day this would prevent around one million disposable nappies from entering our landfills every single week. “It is not hard, we don’t all have to be environmental saints, we all just need to do a little bit and that is better than doing nothing.’’



rom March 23-30, the ‘Nappy Lady’ Kate Meads will be touring the country to promote easyto-use modern cloth nappies. She says teaching parents about the modern versions of re-usable nappies, and dispelling all of the “silly myths’’ about using cloth nappies

are the main focuses of her workshops, but she will also include new information on cost-effective ways to reduce waste in the home. Attendees will each go home with a free trial pack of modern cloth nappies. The value of the packs vary from region to region and can

be worth up to $170 in some places. This year Ms Meads is challenging parents who attend the workshops to commit to using one cloth nappy every day on their baby. For information on regional workshop dates go to www.

Where to from here for ABA? A

shburton’s business association might be looking at a new, challenging and perhaps uncertain future, but its past is littered with success stories. It’s been a lobby group, a support group and was largely responsible for upping the standard of customer service in Ashburton. It might have achieved much, but today the association is floundering under member apathy. The successes of its past are no longer relevant and it is struggling to find a new path and a new future. Retired retailer Russell Anstiss is well versed in the workings of the association. He came to it as a young bookseller and was viewed by many of the establishment as a bit of a renegade. Russell was part of the new wave of retailers who were keen to shake up the old guard. They wanted to breathe new life and energy into Ashburton’s retail heart and rather than simply following the directive of the establishment they wanted to have a say. “When I became involved the retailers’ association was only for the rag, the white and the brown (clothing, whiteware and furniture) trades, it didn’t include businesses like grocers, jewellers and booksellers,” he said. That exclusive “old boys’ club” frustrated the new breed of retailers and it took just one arbitrary decision to galvanise the challengers into action. “They decided, these white and brown retailers, that they’d change late night shopping from Friday to Thursday night. No discussion, that was it.” Russell and fellow young retailers Mick Stayt and John Brown were furious. They got together, planned a strategy and took their complaint to the top, to Ashburton Mayor Darcy Digby. “I was a young bookseller and

As the Ashburton Business Association decides whether to reform and refocus or to shut up shop, one of its strongest supporters, Russell Anstiss, shares with reporter Sue Newman his thoughts about the association – past and present.

our magazines came in on a Friday. I wanted to sell them on a Friday and I guess this got a bit heated. I told the mayor there was this group in town calling itself the retailers’ association but it wasn’t fully representative of all retailers and yet they were making decisions as though they were representing all retailers in the district,” he said. They also pointed out that if the association was a retail association, it should be open to all retailers not just a chosen few. The days of the post-war, old boys’ club were over, he said. The dissident group made submissions to the council, the council discussed the issue and decided that the association had to open its doors to all-comers and that the town’s late night should remain as Friday. Allenton’s retailers, however, opted en mass to change their late night to Thursday. “It was a good outcome. We were invited to their meetings and we told them we needed to do some-

thing in the town to revitalise it. Someone said to me, ‘you’re the smart little bugger, you come up with some ideas then’.” He did. While he won’t claim too much credit, Russell’s name and the origins of Boulevard Day are tightly linked. “I decided I’d come up with something that would rock the socks off Ashburton, something we could all get involved in and this was it.” Over the years since, the association has been strong and has had a high profile in town, but in its heyday it was clearly a retailers’ association with a retail focus, Russell said. He sees today’s issue, where the association is drowning under member apathy, as having everything to do with its loss of focus. “It’s now a business association and it’s too fragmented. It needs to come back to being a retailers’ association; in recent years

they’ve bought in old uncle Tom Cobbly and all. It should be what it was set up to be – big is not always beautiful.” Retail was retail. You could call an organisation whatever you wanted but to work it needed strong leadership and it needed a strong focus, Russell said. And it is finding that focus that’s the challenge for today’s executive, a tough call in an organisation where a meeting to discuss its future attracted less than 20 of its 130-odd members. That meeting earlier this month was called to determine whether the association had a future. No-one seemed to know; no-one seemed willing to pull the pin either. Ideas were floated, suggestions made. And while many of those were good, had potential even, there appeared to be no magic fixes and no-one willing to lead the charge. While there were no questions raised over the future of Boulevard Day, the town’s Christmas Parade is likely to be canned. With just a small executive left to do all the work, it’s one step too far to be asked to raise money for the event and to do all the organising. Today the not-for-profit association is struggling. It has more members than ever before but it also appears to have more member apathy. Its only income is from member subscriptions and with these due to go out shortly, its executive fears

there might be more than a few defaulters. For president Carol Johns there are just two questions – do you want the organisation and if so what do you want it to do and be? “We need to identify what we are and what we are doing. It’s disappointing we’re getting no feedback from members. Perhaps this is not what they want.” And there’s a simple followon, she says – if you have ideas, help us implement them; if you don’t then you might have to accept that the organisation folds. Long-serving member Bob McDonald believes shutting up shop is not an option. The association, he says, is a voice for retailers. It’s nonpolitical and it can fight for the rights of individuals or the group. He’s been a member for more than 20 years and said that back in the day, the membership might have been around 50 retailers but most were actively involved. That involvement drifted over time and a decision was made to replace retail with business in the name to broaden the base. If the organisation folds the business community will lose a lobby group that over the years had battled the council over a range of issues from parking to trade waste charges. “I see the problem right now is that the town is doing well and people think what’s the point because if they’re doing well then they can’t say they can’t afford to join,” he said. The association was needed in some form because of the power of a non-political group to represent its views, Bob said.

In brief

Planes fail to find debris Search planes sent to find objects in the south Indian Ocean that may be from the missing Malaysia Airlines jet began returning without success yesterday, and an Australian official said the hunt would be extended again for another day. The planes are part of an international effort to solve the nearly 2-week-old aviation mystery by locating two large objects a satellite detected floating off the southwest coast of Australia about halfway to the Antarctic. The area in the southern Indian Ocean is so remote it takes aircraft four hours to fly there and four hours back, and leaves them only about two hours to search. The satellite discovery raised new hope of finding the vanished jet and sent another emotional jolt to the families of the 239 people aboard. But like the first day of searching Thursday, efforts Friday were fruitless, said John Young, manager of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s emergency response division.

“Although this search area is much smaller than we started with, it nonetheless is a big area when you’re looking out the window and trying to see something by eye,” Young said. “So we may have to do this a few times to be confident about the coverage of that search area,” he said. Young said that although the

weather improved from Thursday, there was still some low cloud cover over the search area 2300km from western Australia. Given that radar did not pick up anything on Thursday, searchers were using their eyes instead of equipment to try and spot the objects, forcing the planes to fly very low over the water.

The aircraft are planning to head back to the search zone today, but the search area will change slightly depending on water movements overnight, Young said. AMSA officials are also looking to see if there is any new satellite imagery that can help provide searchers with new or more information, he said. Speaking at a news conference in Papua New Guinea, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said, “We’ve been throwing everything we’ve got at that area to try to learn more about what this debris might be.” He said that the objects “could just be a container that’s fallen off a ship — we just don’t know.” Abbott spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping, whom he described as “devastated.” Of the 227 passengers on the missing flight, 154 were from China. “It’s about the most inaccessible spot that you could imagine on the face of the earth, but if there is anything down there we will find it.” - APNZ


Australians urged to join digital detox Can you go unplug yourself from digital technology for 48 hours? Federal Opposition Leader Bill Shorten reckons he can only do it for a day. He joined calls yesterday for Australians to join a digital detox and “clean the bloody garage” instead. The 48-hour digital detox is part of a campaign to stamp out cyberbullying by the Bully Zero Australia Foundation, which provides care to bullying victims.

“It is really about Australia taking a step back and detoxing,” foundation boss Oscar Yildiz told reporters on the national day against bullying. “Just to see what life’s really like whether it’s cooking for mum, whether it’s going for a run, whether it’s actually going outside and kicking the football. “Clean the bloody garage. “We want people to go back to some of those things that they miss out on and take for granted.”

Money raised from the campaign will be spent on anti-bullying programmes in schools. The foundation says one in three Australians have been cyberbullied and 70 per cent are using social media to an extent “that they can’t let go”. Mr Shorten, who was on hand to acknowledge a partnership between Essendon Football Club and Bully Zero Australia, said he would love to give the detox a try. “I reckon I can go 24 hours,”

the Opposition Leader said. Modern Australians did not need to have their phones by their bed every night, he said. “Adults carry their smart phones around with them closer than they even carry their wallets these days. Australia will not have a bad day if Australians turn off their social media. “A 48-hour digital detox will do more for the mental health of Australians than a lot of other options we’ve got in our busy crowded lives.” - AAP

At least eight civilians including children and foreigners were killed in a Taliban attack on a luxury hotel in Kabul. In a brazen assault, four teenage gunmen with pistols hidden in their socks managed to penetrate several layers of security at the Serena hotel, a prestigious venue favoured by foreign visitors to the capital, on Thursday night. One of the civilians killed in the attack was a former Paraguayan diplomat who was in Afghanistan as an election observer, Paraguay’s foreign minister Eladio Loizaga said. - AAP

Beauty queen raped When 18-year-old Israeli beauty queen Linor Abargil was crowned Miss World in 1998, the tears streaming down her cheeks appeared to be the overwhelming joy of a young woman fulfilling a childhood dream. Few knew the painful truth behind them — that just six weeks earlier she had been raped at knifepoint. Unlike most victims of sexual assault, Abargil refused to keep quiet. She pressed charges, spoke out publicly and testified at a trial that sent her attacker to prison for 16 years. Her ordeal inspired other Israeli women to break their own silence and she is taking her campaign against sexual violence global. - AP

First lady’s visit First lady Michelle Obama tried her hand at Chinese calligraphy yesterday during a visit to a high school in Beijing at the start of a weeklong visit to China aimed at promoting education and personto-person exchanges. Obama was joined by Peng Liyuan, the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping. Accompanied by her daughters Malia and Sasha and mother Marian Robinson, Obama practised writing the Chinese character for “eternal” under the guidance of 16-year-old student Lu Yuhong. “I’m nervous,” Obama said. “Don’t be nervous,” Peng replied in English. Lu said he too was nervous, as well as “very excited.” “But the first lady was so amicable. She was very approachable,” Lu said. The visit marks the first meeting between Obama and Peng, whose husbands run the world’s first and second largest economies. - AP

Kiwis dial up their explosive talent By DaviD Leggat In Ross Taylor’s mind, where the New Zealand team is concerned right now, momentum and confidence are distinctly different things. New Zealand have one, but not the other going into the world T20 tournament, according to the country’s premier batsman. Any notion that New Zealand will take momentum into the tournament, starting against England at Chittagong early tomorrow morning, gets short shrift from Taylor. Confidence is another story. “I think momentum is important but I don’t think we can take much from the home summer because it’s been a while since we played,” he said yesterday. “But we can take confidence from how we played [against the West Indies and India]. “If we start the tournament strongly, get a couple of wins, then things like momentum can come into it a bit more.” Taylor is battling a wonky right elbow, which is affecting his throwing more than his batting. He’s hopeful of being ready to face England, a side that wouldn’t rank among the tournament favourites, but which Taylor is wary of. They beat New Zealand twice early last year and “they are a dangerous side - we can’t take them lightly”. Openers Alex Hales and Michael Lumb, Ian Bell, Eion Morgan, Luke Wright and Jos Buttler are all batting threats. Stuart Broad leads a bowling attack mixing craft and guile in the form of Tim Bresnan and

offspinner James Tredwell. New Zealand lost both their official warm-ups, to Pakistan and Australia. Taylor acknowledged there were areas that needed tidying up. “But they were definitely good hit-outs and it doesn’t matter how you play in the warm-ups; it’s how you play in the proper competition”. There’s no denying New Zealand have explosive qualities in the middle order. Give Corey Anderson, Colin Munro, Luke Ronchi and Jimmy Neesham a solid springboard and there’s much to lick the lips at. Taylor hopes World Cup newbies, like Anderson and Neesham, thrill to the challenge on a big stage. “I’m sure they’ll be excited. Sometimes those youngsters who haven’t been in that scenario, they get overwhelmed. Some embrace it. “We’ve got a lot of guys who’ve played a lot of World Cups and others who bring a different dimension. “I’m sure if we play to our potential we’ll give ourselves a good chance.” New Zealand have decent prospects of at least making the semifinals, something they’ve

only accomplished once before in the four previous editions of the format. Failure to do so - and they must make the top two from England, South Africa, Sri Lanka and a qualifier, probably Ireland - would be disappointing. It could come down to their final group game, against one of the favourites, Sri Lanka, on April 1 so early points are crucial rather than having to rely on a late rails run. Just where outright favouritism lies is a moot point. The West Indies are defending champions and despite a fine talent for inconsistency, have the players who, if they get on a decent roll, will be hard to stop. This is one title which has eluded Australia. They certainly have batting muscle. Pakistan, winners in 2009, have quality spin and piles of passion but slip up when least expected. India will certainly threaten, but Sri Lanka - with batting greats Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene announcing T20 retirement days ago - have a good allround blend. Plus expect their two marvellous veterans to want to end with a flourish. - APNZ

He likes the ball coming on to the bat, so Gayle may need to pick his moments. But he is still the West Indies’ most dangerous batsman. If he’s on song and an unbeaten 58 off 38 balls against England this week suggests he’s not far off - the defending champions, who have good spin options and decent hitters through the order, will be a real threat.

Lasith Malinga (Sri Lanka) The round arm slinger with the curly dyed gold locks has been a handful for years and most batsmen are none the wiser at picking him up. Sri Lanka use him in one-over spells at times and be sure he’ll have the bowling mark in his hands near the finish of games.

Brendon McCullum (New Zealand)

Saeed Ajmal (Pakistan)

Only Aaron Finch sits above him in T20 batting rankings. No one has scored more T20 runs than the New Zealand skipper. The debate continues over where he should bat. Put it this way, somewhere in the top three is the answer. Scores fast even when not at his best. A poor McCullum return will severely handicap NZ’s hopes.

Ranked third among T20 bowlers, Ajmal is a befuddler of the best batsmen. You mightn’t like the, er, purity of his action but he’s passed tests so the game is stuck with it. No one has taken more than his 81 T20 wickets in 59 games at 17 runs apiece and his economy rate of 6.2 an over is tasty too. A genuine matchwinner.

Aaron Finch (Australia) The easy choice would be David Warner, but Finch is the world’s top-ranked T20 batsman, whose strike rate is a whopping 167.33. He’s played 14 T20s, averaging 41.8, in one of which he clobbered 156 in 63 balls against England at Southampton last year. With hints that this could be a bowlers’ tournament, Finch is clearly a gamebreaker.

SET OF SIX Playing chicken Warriors fans might have left Eden Park disappointed for two reasons on Saturday. Not only did they see their side slump to a 31-12 defeat to the Dragons but they also couldn’t look forward to nine pieces of finger lickin’ good KFC for $9.95 on Tuesday. KFC sponsor the video ref decisions and plaster the deal on the big screen at grounds but it’s available only in Australia. Given the obesity epidemic in this country, it’s probably just as well.

Getting lost You could forgive fans or taxi drivers for not knowing where games are being played these days, given how often stadiums have name changes. The War-

riors are playing at the curiously-named 1300Smiles Stadium on Saturday night, which is the fourth name for the stadium at Townsville since the Cowboys entered the competition in 1995 (Stockland, Malanda, Dairy Farmers). The Titans are onto their third name (Skilled, Robina and now Cbus Super Stadium) in eight years. Manly’s home ground has been known as Brookvale Oval since it was opened in 1911. Like it.

Going west They already have an appropriate name should the relocation happen, but the Wests Tigers and NRL have moved to reassure fans the team won’t be relocating to Perth as they battle with mounting debts. The Balmain side of the merger is strug-

gling to meet their half share of costs and prompted suggestions they might relocate to Perth. The Western Reds played out of Perth in the mid-1990s but folded because of debts at the end of the 1997 season.

Retiring type It’s a nice gesture but it really doesn’t make any sense. The Broncos will retire the No 5 jersey for tonight’s m a t c h against the Roosters in honour of retired winger Jharal Yow Yeh, who was Jharal Yow Yeh

forced to retire this week after a string of serious injuries. Retiring a jersey, an American tradition, normally means taking it out of circulation forever, not one game. The Warriors retired the No 19 jersey in honour of the Mad Butcher.

New heights The NRL should be applauded for introducing testing for prescription drugs but there’s a sense players will go off and find the next way to get a kick. Surely they won’t be silly enough to continue with the practice of mixing sleeping pills and energy drinks, now the NRL will test them for it. Maybe clubs should be open about responsible drinking to allow young people to be young people.

No ball Just as well the NRL provided more than one ball for last weekend’s game between the Warriors and Dragons at Eden Park. Gareth Widdop (right) kicked his conversion into the top tier of the West S t a n d but there were no spectators there among the sparse crowd. Two security guards needed to take a lift to the top of the stand to retrieve the ball. Just another reason the Warriors should rethink their plans to relocate to Eden Park.

In brief

Hurricanes lose to Highlanders By Daniel RichaRDson And just like that, the pressure is back on the Hurricanes. After opening their Super Rugby campaign with three losses, they kept the knockers at bay for a brief period with a 60-27 destruction of the Cheetahs last weekend but they were brought back to reality as the Highlanders knocked them over 35-31 in Dunedin last night. As has been a problem for most of the season, the Hurricanes fell off plenty of tackles, made basic errors and looked stunted on attack. Coach Mark Hammett has been in the firing line from the Hurricanes’ faithful this season and there’s no reason to think the blowtorch won’t be applied to him and his management team again in the coming week as they look to get their season on track. Considering the Crusaders are on the agenda next, things won’t get any easier for the Hurricanes, who have problems across the board but never seem to look completely out of the games they play. Halfback Chris Smylie was a late scratching for the Hurricanes last night, which was a tough blow for the visitors given the veteran No 9 had looked sharp against the Cheetahs last week but his withdrawal presented a chance for TJ Perenara to redeem himself after an indifferent start to the year. The halfback did have a hand in a late Hurricanes try with a deft offload, although his kicking and option-taking are still areas of concern. Highlanders centre Malakai Fekitoa has been a revelation this season after spending 2013 as a full-time training partner

Carney dismisses talk Cronulla playmaker Todd Carney says it’s stupid to suggest Andrew Fifita should be dropped like hooker Michael Lichaa because he’s leaving the NRL club. Lichaa, who came off the bench to make his Sharks debut against Canterbury on Monday, announced this week he’ll move to Canterbury in 2015 and was subsequently dumped to reserve grade by coach Peter Sharp. Lichaa is rated one of the best young players in the game, but Sharp decided it was not in the club’s interest to fast-track his development for the benefit of another team and recalled experienced Isaac De Gois.

at the Blues. The Tongan-born speedster has looked dangerous on attack all year and delivered a thunderous hit on his opposite number Conrad Smith early in the second spell. A forgettable first half, that was dominated by penalty goals, was quickly put to bed in the second stanza when Highlanders second-five Phil Burleigh bagged a five-pointer in the 50th minute after some phenomenal work from Highlanders fullback Ben Smith. Smith was one of the best on show during the game and must be planting some thoughts in to the mind of All Blacks coach

Steve Hansen ahead of the June tests. Smith’s vision and ability to find his way through gaps, while also holding the ball up in the tackle are a fine mix of skills, while he is also astute under the high ball. When Hurricanes midfielder Hadleigh Parkes threw a pass, which was intercepted by rampaging wing Patrick Osborne mid-way through the second half, the Highlanders eased out to a 35-12 advantage. Late tries to Ben Franks and Beauden Barrett (two) saw the Hurricanes claw their way back in to the contest but it wasn’t enough to see them pull off a

comeback win as they dropped their fourth contest of the campaign. Despite missing a dolly of a penalty goal in the early stages, Lima Sopoaga, a Wellington born, raised and educated fiveeighth, had an absolute bumper evening off the kicking tee and he eventually landed nine from 10, including seven conversions and two penalties. Highlanders 35 (Phil Burleigh, Patrick Osborne tries; Lima Sopoaga 7 pen, 2 con) Hurricanes 31 (Beauden Barrett 2, Ben Franks tries; Barrett 4 pen, 2 con) Halftime: 18-9 - APNZ

Track stars’ rivalry set to thrill New Zealand athletics has waited a long time for a rivalry like it. Next weekend’s shotput showdown between the junior star Jacko Gill, the Devonport dynamo who enjoyed phenomenal success at an early age but now experiencing growing pains as he makes the step up to the senior ranks, and Timaru’s Tom Walsh, the quiet achiever who is finally reaping the rewards for his years of hard work, is the most anticipated athletics match-up in over 50 years. The pair will go head-tohead for the first time since December 2011 when they meet at the national track and field

Ashburton Guardian 23

championships in Wellington next Saturday. On that occasion a 16-year-old Gill shattered his own New Zealand senior record, throwing over 1.5m further than Walsh. But since then a lot has changed for both athletes. Much like the optimum trajectory of the shotput, Gill enjoyed a steep ascent early on his career, but his progress has levelled out as he makes the difficult transition from the 6kg shot to the 7.26kg senior weight. His throw of 20.38m on that balmy December evening in 2011 remains his personal best. Walsh meanwhile took some tough knocks as a junior but

has continued chipping away in the sport and the rewards have come. He took the New Zealand record off Gill in December last year, before announcing his arrival on the international scene with a bronze medal at the world indoor championships in Poland earlier this month. His throw of 21.26m extended his national record and easily met the Commonwealth Games ‘A’ qualifying standard. Since Walsh eclipsed Gill’s record four months ago, little has been seen or heard of the 19-year-old star. The eccentric teen has gone to ground as the pressure of his looming battle with his Canterbury rival and the frustration of his stalled

progress has placed him under huge strain. But his few public statements have added even more intrigue to the upcoming battle. Earlier this month Gill posted a video montage of his outrageous, high-octane training sessions. In the youtube clip, the strapping 118kg youngster is seen bounding over hurdles, squatting 250kg and doing one-arm shoulder presses, before bizarrely staring down the camera as he ate a raw chilli without flinching. It was meant to send out a strong statement that Gill is in top shape ahead of the nationals. - APNZ

The toe infection that ruled Australian paceman Mitchell Johnson out of the World Twenty20 has spread to his leg. In an update on injured players released yesterday, Cricket Australia (CA) indicated Johnson may now face a race against time to be fit to take up his lucrative $1.15 million deal in the Indian Premier League in April. “He is recovering from an infection that began in his right big toe, before affecting his right leg,” CA wrote. “He is being managed by a team of medical specialists. Depending on how quickly he recovers, Johnson’s next scheduled commitment is the 2014 Indian Premier League where he will represent Kings XI Punjab which finishes at the end of May.”

McMeniman stays Western Force coach Michael Foley is confident his side can cover the loss of Wallabies forward Ben McCalman for tonight’s Super Rugby clash with defending champions the Chiefs. McCalman has been a star performer for the Force this season, but the bustling No.8 copped a one-week ban for a lifting tackle during last week’s 31-29 win over the Highlanders in Dunedin. But McCalman’s loss has been offset by the return of another Wallaby, with Hugh McMeniman recalled to the starting side in a reshuffled back row. McMeniman, who injured his neck three weeks ago, will slot in at No.6, with Angus Cottrell replacing McCalman in the No.8 jersey. The Force’s confidence is sky high following bonus point wins over the Rebels and Highlanders.

United turning point Manchester United wants to use their trip to West Ham to show their comeback against Olympiakos was not another false start. United have been enduring a tough first season under new manager David Moyes, and they sunk to a new low with the 3-0 home defeat by arch-rivals Liverpool at the weekend. Moyes’ side responded to overturn a 2-0 deficit against the Greek side in the Champions League last 16 second leg at Old Trafford on Wednesday, with a 3-0 win taking them through to the quarter-finals. However, consistency has been hard to fine since Moyes replaced Alex Ferguson in the pre-season, and with nine matches left the English champions are 12 points behind fourth-placed Manchester City. United midfielder Juan Mata could return to the side. - AAP

Bond revived for another golden season BY JONATHAN LEASK


Olympic champion Hamish Bond told Rakaia primary school students that the hardest part about winning the gold was the four years leading up to the day, Bond and pairs partner Eric Murray are halfway through that process again. “It has come around relatively fast. Over the last year we have tried to establish and create new challenges that motivate us.” Bond is coming off a freshening up summer where he and Murray predominantly sat in single boats. “The idea of doing another summer just in the pair didn’t particularly enthuse me.” “I had always been able to train pretty well in the single and go fast but had struggled to translate that into racing performances so that was the goal this summer.” He achieved his goal, picking up the national men’s single title beating Olympic

champion Mahe Drysdale in the process, for the fourth time in four regattas over the New Zealand summer. “Now we are back in the pair our fitness levels are really high and we have good speed at the moment. “Our rhythm is a little bit off and taking some time to get it right. It’s not quite comfortably yet and for me if you are comfortable you end up going fast. “It’s just that time out of the boat and establishing that rhythm but that is harder for Eric. I just do what I do and he has to tune in.” Unbeaten since 2009, the plan is for the pair to maintain that record right on through to Rio and defend their title for a second gold medal. Then Bond could be up for a new challenge “potentially” moving to the single for a crack at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. “That’s still a wee way away and you don’t know what shape you’re going to be in both mentally and physically as far as going around the block again.” The single may be a future challenge but Bond is firmly fixated on his current one, reclaiming Olympic gold in Rio. Bond and Murray, along with the rest of the New Zealand crews have a big block of training before heading to Europe in June, racing in France, Switzerland and then the world championships in Amsterdam.

pearances it was the best regatta across the board. They aren’t expected to better that effort this year but Beveridge is still hopeful of some top eight finishes. The message from Beveridge is to deliver in the heats or find a nice place to sit. “We want to have as many boats as we can still on racks at the end of the week still racing. “That’s the main aim of any regatta.

Not sitting on the bank watching.” College had some promising results at the South Island Secondary Schools’ regatta at Lake Ruataniwha a fortnight ago, qualifying for 11 A finals and three B finals but were without a medal. Beveridge was happy enough with the boats progressing but expects them to lift their intensity. “They just have to take that next step. “Maadi can be a tough one as some crews don’t peak until this week, even

though the South Islands were two weeks ago. “Fingers crossed some of our boats are peaking at the right time too.” The programme has heats on Monday and Tuesday, with some repechage races possible for Tuesday evening. Wednesday has repechage and quarter finals, with semi-finals on Thursday. The finals run over Friday and Saturday, where college hope to have plenty of boats still on the water.

Club and Kiwi oarsmen of the Second NZEF following the winning of the Fryberg Cup by the New Zealand oarsmen in competition with members of the Cairo Rowing Club at a regatta on the Nile on the 20th November, 1943.” The Kiwi oarsmen of the Maadi Camp Rowing Club won the regatta for the Freyberg Cup by 11 points to six. However, they donated the trophy to the Cairo Rowing Club for future competition.

In return Dr Bahgat presented them with a cup that was to become the Maadi Cup. At the conclusion of the war it was brought back to New Zealand where it was named the Maadi Cup and presented to the NZARA (now the NZRA) for the annual eight-oared competition among the New Zealand secondary schools. The first race was held at Wanganui in 1947 and it was won by Mt Albert Grammar but is currently in the hands

of Hamilton Boys’ High School. As the premier event the Maadi Cup is last on the programme. The overall regatta trophy is the Star Trophy which was introduced in 1997 and is awarded to the champion school that accumulates the most points from A finals. There is also the Presidents Scull for the best sculling school on points in scull events and the Executive Trophy for the best sweep oar event school.

She won silver in the pair at the SISS (behind the Craighead boat) as well as a bronze in the under 18 quad and eight, and could only manage fourth in the under 18 single, where she finished 7th at last year’s Maadi.

CJ Bruton, in his own words After 20 years and six Australian NBL titles, CJ Bruton played his final game for the Breakers at Vector Arena last night, going down to the Cairns Taipans 83-95. He recalls in his own words numbers that marked his glittering career.

7 - First basketball ory


When I was seven, any time Dad (Calvin Bruton, Sr.) was playing, we’d go as a family, wish him luck, and when he went in the locker room we’d go to the back court and get some shots up. Eventually they’d shuffle everyone into the stands but, as soon as the game started, I’d tell my mum I had to go to the toilet. I hardly watched my dad play in the early years - I was too busy shooting at the toilet sign. That was my bucket and, with my imagination, I’d play against my dad and whoever he was playing with. I’d throw jump hooks, work on my lay-ups, and if I hit the toilet sign it was a bucket. They were great memories and helped me to the point that, when I played my first game, I felt comfortable because I’d played it all in my head.

3 - The first three-pointer of many My first game (for Perth in 1994), I came on close to the end of the first quarter and I fouled Darryl Pearce on a threepoint shot. The Iceman, as smooth as silk, just knocked down all three. I knew I had to make up for it really quick, otherwise I might not hit the floor again. The next play, it was almost the end of the quarter. I dribbled down, got between the three-point line and half-court and let it fly. It went in off the backboard. I just kept running towards the bench and everyone was up and celebrating. I couldn’t


celebrate - I just thought, at least I made the shot and hopefully coach doesn’t bench me for what I did wrong. He let me start the next quarter.

1 - The first championship with Sydney It was the fifth game of the series and everyone was out of gas. Everyone was running up and down on their last legs, just hoping someone would miss a shot. Down the stretch, [West Sydney] got in front and it felt like I had nothing left. Then Ebi Ere, the import from Oklahoma, went down and made three straight shots and started clapping. And that clap meant we were ready to go. We closed the game out, drew fouls and made our foul shots. When that final buzzer went it was like magic. I went to my dad, hugged him, and gave him the ring.

2000 - Up-and-down crowds at beginning with Breakers I just thought we were talented, we had threats everywhere and we could score 110 points every game. People would say to me, ‘Why are you going to the Breakers?’ But with [Andrej Lemanis] and Tony Ronaldson, they put a lot of things in place before I got here. Once we started shocking teams and we were in first or second, they realised we were a force to be reckoned with. But the first year was still rough. We dropped really quickly and, when we collapsed, I remember going from sell-out crowds to seeing like 2000 people.

4 - Fourth championship Before we ran out on the floor, I looked at the boys and told them how special it

CJ Bruton

was to play in big moments like that. I said, ‘Right now, I’m proud to go with my brothers to war. This is going to be one of the moments we’ll remember for a lifetime’. All the players I’ve won a title with, when we walk out on the floor, I tap twice. When we have double-claps, it means we’ve gone through the war and we have that special bond.

ing for it but, when it counted, we were right there, we looked them in the eyes and said, ‘Bring it’. For our club, what it meant, what we were going for, who we had to go through - it was special.

516 - The final appearance in the ANBL I just hope the fans enjoy themselves and

6 - Sixth ring and rivalry with appreciate what I’ve done, even those watching at home on TV. There’s been Perth a lot of messages and letters coming to After we got dropped by Perth in the first game that season, I remember being written off and people saying it was over. As we rolled on, we lost to them again, then we lost to them in Perth. But when it counted, when it came finals time, I knew we would beat them. We’d seen each other so much and it was physical - on the court, it was as rough as it was going to get. We had the ring and they were com-

the club and it’s been very special to hear what I’ve meant to the club. For me, it’s been a blessing. From meeting (owners) Paul and Liz (Blackwell), to the organisation, to playing in front of sell-outs. I’ve envisaged playing in front of sell-outs since my dad was able to do that with the Wildcats. He did it for a club - I get to go do it for a country. - Kris Shannon, APNZ

xporting can be an excellent way to access new customers and grow your business. Before you take the leap, however, it is important to consider whether your business is export ready and to fully understand what is involved before you start. Obviously, you need to have a product or service which is of value to an overseas market. Then take a look at your existing business and ensure you have the necessary skills, resources and information to support export activity. In many ways, getting ready for international business is similar to starting your local

business. There are also a lot of different operational considerations, such as labelling requirements, freight and logistics. You need to ensure you concentrate your effort on a market in which you can succeed. Critical to becoming a successful exporter is understanding your target market so undertake research and use facts to support your decisions. Once you have selected the overseas market, make sure you take the time to visit. Having first-hand experience will provide you with invaluable knowledge of the customers, the market conditions and help you recognise what is required to succeed. Be prepared to play a long game. There is a lot of cost involved in establishing your presence, building momentum and moving your product. Often costs rise sharply before revenue filters through. Putting time in up-front forecast-

ing and putting together a funding plan will make sure you get through the initial tough period. It is also vital to make sure you don’t neglect your local market. You may consider bringing additional resource in to help manage your domestic operation while you focus on establishing the export side of your business. Having strength in the domestic market will also provide you with working capital and funding to invest in developing your export market. Like most big strategic decisions, there are risks with export. But seeking the right advice and sound planning will help you succeed. However, the short-term challenges and effort have the potential to transform into long-term rewards. Matt Hannah is a senior manager for KPMG Private Enterprise

customers as over 50 per cent of our stores have had a refit and we continue with our nationwide multi-million dollar store refurbishment strategy,” The Warehouse CEO Simon Turner said. The Warehouse Ashburton store manager Nick Boyd, has received positive feedback from the community in the lead up to the re-launch. Port FM will be at the store on opening day from 11am to 1pm with giveaways and prizes.


The New Zealand Superannuation Fund said it would invest up to US$250 million ($292.5m) in North American gas and oil opportunities with US energy investment firm, KKR. Up to US$175 million would be directed to new KKR energy private equity investments in North American natural gas exploration and production, NZ Super Fund said in a statement. The remaining US$75 million would be invested with the $2 billion KKR Energy Income and Growth Fund, a new KKR fund focused on investing in the development of unconventional gas and oil resources in North America. The NZ Super Fund’s other energy sector investments over the past 12 months have included US$100m in Bloom Energy, which uses solid oxide fuel cell technology to create power, and US$55m in wind turbine maker, Ogin. The investments follow extensive research into opportunities in the energy sector by the Fund over the past couple of years, NZ Super Fund said. “These new investments will broaden and diversify the Fund’s current exposure to energy, in line with what is a changing global energy sector,” the fund’s general manager investments, Matt Whineray, said.

Kiwi slang confusion Coen Lammers EDITOR


anguage can be the key to success and happiness. The Dorie community has initiated a terrific language course for local immigrants to improve their English and pick up some Kiwi slang in the process. As we witnessed again during Thursday’s citizenship ceremony, and in last year’s Census, immigrants are becoming an increasing part of the Mid Canterbury community and language plays a vital role in their integration. The ability to understand people around you, explain yourself, watch television or read the paper can be the difference between feeling confident and at home, or feeling like an outsider. Many foreigners who come to New Zealand have a good understanding of the English language, but even the better prepared immigrants often get a shock when they get their first dose of Kiwi slang. It reminds me of a Dutch friend, who spoke fluent BBC English, but still got all confused at her arrival, wondering why the customs officer wanted her to get into a non-existent “lift”, simply because she misunderstood the New Zealand pronunciation of going “left”. And if our peculiar pronunciation is not challenging enough, most New Zealanders speak at a break-neck speed and throw in hundreds of strange words and expressions that are uniquely Kiwi. Just imagine arriving from abroad and hearing your work mates say something like: “Grab your togs and your jandals and we’ll head over the bach. We’ll get some grog, spuds, sausies and other tucker at the dairy and we’ll fire up the barbie.’’ Confusion would reign supreme and may turn into panic, especially when the newcomer is told not to “be a piker”. A better understanding of Kiwi English will lead to faster integration and more effective communication at work. Most importantly, better skills to express themselves will avoid isolation or frustration and will increase confidence and unlock the true potential of the newcomers. In the meantime, if any person in our community struggles to understand you, don’t make quick judgements about their intelligence, but maybe try talking a bit slower.

YOUR VIEW Alcohol policy I wanted to clarify that our business has not appealed the Ashburton local alcohol policy. A provisional policy has not even been released yet. We’ve worked really hard with councils right around New Zealand, including in Ashburton, to meet with them, be part of the public consultation process and provide information about our customers’ alcohol purchasing patterns that they otherwise wouldn’t have had. We agree that community feedback is important and the new act says that councils must consider this together with evidence about alcohol-related harm in the community when deciding if further local restrictions are necessary over and above the current law. It’s our understanding that across the country there are close to 50 appeals that have been lodged with the Alcohol


Regulatory Licensing Authority, from a range of organisations, including the police and some health groups. It is inaccurate to state that we are holding up the process. We also understand the first LAP hearing in August will be treated as a test case because this is new law and there is some uncertainty. As retailers we remain committed to working with councils as they work through their decision-making process. Dave Chambers, managing director, Progressive Enterprises

ticle on the welfare fund may have caused confusion about its recipients. The welfare fund, established with the foundation, is for Ashburton’s rural volunteer firefighters. These forces risk their lives to save lives and property in our rural community and this welfare trust fund will be available to assist rural firefighters and their families in need. The Ashburton District Council has given a donation of $10,000 to start and already donations are coming in from farmers, homeowners and business owners grateful for the quick and professional assistance of the volunteer rural forces. To date donations totalling $22,800 have been received. Donations can be made to Advance Ashburton Community Foundation for the welfare fund to PO Box 310, Ashburton.

On penguins and polar bears Hanne Nielsen

Ashburton Guardian 31

POLL RESULT Yesterday’s result Q: Does Mid Canterbury have a gang problem?

Yes 67%



ew Zealand, or ‘Godzone’, is often characterised by its pluses – rivers, forests, beaches and birdlife. It can also be defined by its lacks – no snakes, bears or hungry predators out to get you every time you go bush. There is no bush to speak of in Antarctica, but it shares some similar traits, provided you don’t freeze to death, fall down a crevasse, or get on the wrong side of a hungry leopard seal, it is fairly safe as well. Penguins are the epitome of the benign wildlife of the south. Dressed like little waiters and sporting the IQ of your average chicken, they are synonymous with the South Pole and have been used to promote everything from open source software to salt and vinegar chips. We encountered several varieties on our trip, each with their own quirks and customs. Adelies look like they have had five cups of coffee too many, constantly darting left and right with a slightly crazed look in their glassy eyes. These are the downtown commuters of the ice, making their way to the edge of the bergs in packs that resemble crowds on a railway platform, then spilling into ocean en mass, mirroring the 5pm office exodus. Gentoo penguins are somewhat larger, with white patches over their eyes that resemble chic noise-cancelling headphones. They could do with such accessories too, as their call has the timbre of braying donkeys. During the summer months much of the cacophony comes from the chicks, triangular fluffballs with bottomless stomachs that are constantly pestering their parents for a feed. You can see the penguins, you can hear the penguins, but what the postcards and nature documentaries don’t tell you, is that the birds could do with an industrial-scale drenching in Coco Chanel. In short, they stink. The

guano combination of fish and krill that coats the rocks throughout the rookeries can be seen from afar and smelled from even further away. This aroma did not deter early scientists from getting up close and personal with the wee waddlers. The Fit for a FID cookbook details researchers’ recipes from the 1950s, and has a whole section dedicated to penguins. The author prefaces the section with the admission that

“when cooking penguin, I have an awful feeling inside of me that I am cooking little men who are just that little too curious and stupid”. These days penguin is off the menu and we photograph penguin nests instead of devouring penguin breasts. Nevertheless, some people come up with interesting new ways of communing with the colonies. Turning around to find two human-sized penguins posing

with their Lilliputian relatives was a surprise, to say the least. Antarctica is much more than penguins and photo opportunities, but no trip south would be complete without a mention of both. Sure, if you lie still photographing the penguins for long enough a southern giant petrel may decide you resemble a tasty snack, but at least there are no roaming polar bears to finish you off. In that respect, it’s just like home after all.

Extra room leads to more streamlined manufacturing F uel Storage Systems Ltd, manufacturers of the Sebco range of diesel tanks, AdBlue tanks and waste oil tanks, are now located at 16 JB Cullen Drive in the Ashburton Business Estate. Over the New Year break the business moved into a new purpose built workshop and office facility, built by

We are enjoying the new premises and location. We are proud to remain in Mid Canterbury. says Ed Harrison, Managing Director.

Thompsons Engineering Ltd. “We had run out of room at our old site. The new facility allows for more storage and enables the manufacturing process to be streamlined due to more room”, says Ed. Sebco has developed into a well recognised brand and product in farming and industry. The company has been manufacturing for more than seven years, and sales for the company continue to grow. The product range has grown from the initial launch when the company had the 2300l Diesel Station. That range now has tanks from 500l to 10,000l. The company also manufactures waste oil tanks and stations for AdBlue.

Ed says “The AdBlue market continues to grow at a fast pace with more and more trucks, industrial earth movers and tractors using AdBlue as the emission control system. Every one of these machines needs a reliable source where they can get their AdBlue supplies. If they run out, they stop. We supply chemical companies and fuel companies with Sebco AdBlue stations where users can fill up as required.” The team at Sebco welcome any existing or potential customers or anyone wanting to see what we do, to call in to 16 JB Cullen Drive, Ashburton North Business Park.

YOUR STARS by Forecasters

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20) There is a chance this weekend to take a deeper look at what you want from your relationships and of what they need from you in return. TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21) There are no excuses to hide behind when it comes to communication on the relationship front, with a need to ask for what you need. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 22) You have reached an important weekend for friendship and relationship building, but also where matters of the heart need to be a priority. CANCER (JUNE 22 – JULY 24) This is a weekend where finding the right balance between work and play is important, with having the right work/life balance now essential. LEO (JULY 24 – AUG 23) Your emotional and intuitive responses will be alerting you to home and family matters that might normally fly under the radar this weekend. VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 23) As Ceres retrogrades back into your income sector there is a chance to take a deeper look at your priorities, especially as new options open up. LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 23) Clearer income expectations and a developing sense of what your dream job looks and feels like is bringing a new sense of confidence on both fronts. SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) As well as a nose for money there’s a chance to revisit the income expectations you moved into the year with, in light of new work revelations. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) Just in time for the Sun’s first weekend in a fun, playful and romantically charged part of your chart something special develops on the social front. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) While Mars gives you a chance to tap into old professional passions and a fighting spirit, there’s a chance to redefine your definition of success. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) Just in time for the weekend there’s a chance to take some but not all of the focus off your professional game and embrace the social forces in play. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) There’s a need to keep your money and professional hats on over the weekend, with a chance to clarify your income and professional objectives.
