Mayor pushing for more police BY SUE NEWMAN


Gearing up for challenge P16


Just weeks into her first term in office, mayor Donna Favel has tagged increasing police numbers across the Ashburton District as one of her top priorities. Statistics indicate that Ashburton is under resourced in terms of the national recommended policing level – one to every 500 people and she’s about to put pressure on police minister Judith Collins to have this addressed. “I’m in the process of writing to the minister and I’ve spoken to our MP Jo

Goodhew. This is about community safety,” she said. Favel is keen to re-establish a late night forum that involved Safer Ashburton, police and community groups and intends to have ongoing dialogue with those groups about ways to make the district a safer place to live. Favel said she also talked regularly with Ashburton police boss Senior Sergeant Scott Banfield and, while her focus was on upping police numbers in the district, it was also on making sure the policing environment is a safe one for gluyasmotorgroup.

staff. While there was an individual and community responsibility for keeping safe, a critical element in the package was having a well resourced police presence, Favel said. The call for an increase in police numbers took nothing away from the work the district’s policing team did every hour of every day and it did not mean the district was an unsafe place.

Competition under threat By Colin EngElBrECht

The long cherished Ashburton Horticultural Society Gardening Competition is under threat. Joy Jaine, president of the Horticultural Society, said this year there may not be enough entries to run the competition. The competition has been running for over 60 years but dwindling numbers has been a concern recently. “If we don’t get a better response this could well be the last year. “It’s been [running] quite some time, we’re reluctant to not do it but if we don’t have the entries then we don’t have a competition,” she said. The end of the annual competition would be a loss of over a decade’s worth of history in the community for the 135-year-old society. Jaine said for the competition to be judged four very experienced horticulturists are brought down from Christchurch. However, with low numbers it is hard to justify getting the judges to make the trip to Ashburton. Daphne and her husband Jim Allison have been participating in the competition for around 55 years and will be sad to see it go. “We won our first competition when my daughter was 14 months old, now she’s around 50,” she said. However, she said the numbers have been decreasing for a while and it’s becoming harder to justify the time and money put in by society members when

Daphne and her husband Jim Allison stand outside the front of their garden, which has won many awards over the years. PHOTO COLIN ENGELBRECHT 231116-CE-0106 there are only a few entrants. For the competition to survive, Allison said there needed to be more new people taking part. She said now is also the time to get planting if competitors want to be in time for the competition, which ends in February 2017. Entry details for the competition will be advertised in mid-

December through the society’s secretary, Jaine said. There are a number of categories which gardens can be judged for, including best lawn, town houses and flats, open grade, premiere and new garden. Jaine said the new garden category, involving gardens that have never competed before, is

the most desired category at the moment. Winners of each category receive a trophy and a monetary prize. The 2016 winner in the Premiere category was Cheryl and Ed Dowler, who had eight previous premiere awards for their Balmoral Place garden.

Mayor pushing for more police staff numbers From P1 Rather, the call for more police was about ensuring the community had a better response time to incidents and that the police themselves were not put under

impossible pressure, she said. “The police in our district are well trained and they’re committed to the community.” Earlier this year Banfield said that staff numbers in the district

were at the approved level, but agreed they fell well short of the demand for services. This was compounded by the large area officers were required to cover, he said.

Staffing numbers might double at the weekend but the size of the district meant staff could be called to travel from one side of the district to the other to attend back-to-back incidents, he said.

Clarkson to retire as ANZCO head A name familiar to Mid Canterbury farmers will disappear from ANZCO Foods’ company directory in March next year when Mark Clarkson retires as chief executive. Clarkson joined ANZCO in 1991 as general manager of Five Star Beef and its Wakanui feedlot. He was chief executive of Canterbury Meat Packers before becoming managing director of ANZCO group in 2004. Company founder and chairman Graeme Harrison said Clarkson had given wonderful service and during his 13 years leading the company the meat industry had experienced intense livestock procurement competition and thin margins. “Yet ANZCO Foods achieved annual profits and maintained half year dividends to shareholders in all but one year.” Relying on retained earnings to fund growth and no new capital raising throughout the period, ANZCO had expanded annual sales revenue to over $1.5 billion and employees to more than 3000. The company has focused more recently on value-add activities in its food and solutions division rather than expanding livestock processing capacity. Harrison said despite excess processing capacity in the national meat industry, ANZCO intended to remain a major player and grow its add-on activities. Clarkson will be replaced by Peter Conley, who currently heads the harvest division of ANZCO. He has in-depth overseas experience, including five years as president of the Chicago-based ANZCO Foods North America.

St Joseph’s collects coats for a warmer winter By Noah Graham

St Joseph’s School collected more than 100 coats last week to warm kids desperate for an extra layer of warm clothing next winter. The school’s student council organised the collection day for last Friday where every student was asked to bring in a coat or a monetary donation if they did not have a jacket to spare. St Joseph’s School student council chairperson Eimear Gray, 13, is delighted with the response from her fellow students who brought in more than 100 quality coats and raised $208 which will be given to Coats for Kids. The student council wanted to fundraise and thought Coats for Kids was a great foundation to donate to. Gray is happy to help the kids but also wants to help families in Kaikoura and thought about donating the money to them instead. However, they decided give the money to Coats for Kids and have a separate fundraiser planned for next week for Kaikoura families.

Centre delays frustrate developer By Sue NewmaN

A major development project in Ashburton’s central business area is on hold until an Opus report on preferred options for the Ashburton District Council’s civic centre and library rebuild is made public. And those delays are frustrating the Eastfield Company project team, says chairman Brian Davidson. The civic centre is just one of several possible options on its drawing board for the inner town site but with its future an unknown the development was in a bit of a holding pattern, he said.

Opus prepared an initial report on four site options for the new complex and this went out for public consultation. A report summarising the feedback and recommending a final site option has been delivered to the council but it won’t be made public until January. In an effort to speed up the process, Davidson wrote to council chief executive Andrew Dalziel suggesting a joint working party should be formed to develop a comprehensive design for the complex on the Eastfield site. In the letter he said that any work done between the two parties would “Provide the commu-

nity with an open and transparent view on how the parties were working together”. Davidson said it was important to identify what the common denominator was between what the council needed and what Eastfield could offer. “We wanted to put this to rest once and for all; we wanted to get some finality,” he said. The timeframe the council has set where the report will not be discussed until next year was hampering progress on the Eastfield development, Davidson said. “Essentially we’re sitting in limbo. We have other proposals in the wind but this project is a ma-

jor iron in our fire because what’s involved is a large tract of land. It’s critical to what we do.” When it came to entering into any kind of planning project with Eastfield, the council’s hands were tied, said chief executive Andrew Dalziel. The outcome of the feasibility study discussions and deliberations on the shortlisted locations and options had to be discussed and debated by councillors before any decisions were made, he said. While it might not be ideal for Eastfield, the timing of the October local body elections that saw seven new faces around the council table and the Christmas

break meant there would not be an opportunity for the report to be workshopped until late January, Dalziel said. “The new councillors need to come up to speed, they need to make site visits and look at the old civic building and the library and they need an opportunity to ask questions and we didn’t think we could do all of this before Christmas.” The council is also a part owner of Eastfield. Other sites in the mix for the new civic complex are Balmoral Hall, the Baring Square church and old county council building and the current civic centre site.

Methven High Country fete a success By SuSan SandyS

Southerly winds blew away the odd gazebo, but all in all the first Methven High Country Fete was a success. “The word has got out and people have come from all over the place,” co-organiser Julie Sergeant said as the fete drew to a close yesterday. The main turnout was from locals, and she and fellow organiser Denise Dixey were grateful for the support. She estimated more than 500 turned up and funds raised from sources such as admission and sponsorship were to go towards Methven Care Trust, St John, and the Methven Historical Society and Library Committee. Rescuing a couple of gazebos was the order of the day when an afternoon southerly blew through. Entertainer Vicki Smith was “an absolute trooper” as she carried on singing as the gazebo she was in fell down around her. The success of the event, which featured 97 stallholders from throughout New Zealand with unique products, meant it would be held again next year. Right: Hundreds flocked to the fete. Far right: Among those attending was Monique Luff and sixmonth-old- Summer Weir, and Sandra Weir.




Farmers urged - mow rural roadsides By Linda CLarke

A rural fire boss has made a plea to farmers to keep their roadsides mowed to reduce the risk of vegetation fire. Principal rural fire officer Don Geddes said lush spring growth would be fuel for fire once the weather turned warmer and the countryside dried out. Farmers should mow their roadsides now and keep mowing them regularly, he said. The fire risk across the district is low at the moment, but a period of warm weather and nor’west winds could change that.

Geddes said vegetation should also be cleared around buildings and machinery checked for bird’s nests. “As these grasses grow to seed and maturity there is going to be a lot of fuel around. People need to be tidy and be careful with spark-hazardous activity.” He said farmers should make a habit of carrying fire extinguishers in their tractors and harvesters. MetService says the temperature peaked about 27°C in Ashburton on Tuesday and it was expected to be that warm again yesterday.

“High pressure is sitting just to the north-west of New Zealand, bringing us mostly sunny weather for the first half of this week,” MetService meteorologist Claire Flynn said. Flynn said north-westerly winds mean that the air arriving in eastern areas will have travelled over the mountain ranges, which causes it to dry out and warm up. This is called the Foehn effect and is the reason that temperatures are heating up in the east this week. A southerly change bringing cooler temperatures and rain is expected tonight.


Immigration New Zealand apologises for website error Immigration New Zealand says an announcement on its website that the Skilled Migrant Category visa has closed is a mistake. It follows changes last month when points for approval of residency for skilled migrants was raised from 140 to 160 points. A notification on the agency’s website this morning said the Skilled Migrant Category resident visa was closed indefinitely. “We changed the relevant page in October to add in a notification that the Skilled Migrant Category policy had changed. The notification was supposed to expire last

night, but inadvertently the page was set up to show the policy had closed, instead of the notification disappearing,” said Immigration spokesman Marc Piercey. “Immigration New Zealand apologises unreservedly for the error.” Licensed immigration adviser Paola Neilson said thousands of people could be affected, as well as many industries, if the Skilled Migrant Category was closed. Almost half of all residence approvals last year, or 21,165, were through the skilled migrant category. - NZME

Fundraising for Kaikoura’s animals By Noah Graham

Left – Longbeach School student Keeley Galbraith, 8, was pleased with the donations she received from her baked goods that she sold to fellow students at lunchtime on Monday.

One Longbeach School student loves helping animals. Eight-year-old Keeley Galbraith spent her weekend baking to raise money for Kaikoura animals affected by last week’s 7.8 earthquake. Galbraith, with help from her mum and grandparents, made a range of delicious goods – from ice cream cake to Russian fudge – to feed fellow students and raise money to help her furry friends. She sold the food yesterday lunchtime to students and teachers for 50 cents per piece and raised $165. The money will be donated to Mid Canterbury Animal Shelter. Galbraith asked her fellow students to bring in any spare petfood they had for Kaikoura pets in need of some nourishment. The box full of pet food will be sent up to Kaikoura this week. Longbeach School two to three teacher Georgina Turpie said Galbraith always talked about animals and organised the fundraising on her own. “I think it’s awesome and she used her initiative,” Turpie said.

Hail damage not easily seen There could be hundreds of cars being driven around the Ashburton District that could give their owners a rude shock when they decided to sell. Last week’s short, sharp hail storm did far more damage than is immediately visible to the naked eye, says panel repair company owner Kieran Breakwell. Almost as soon as the hailstones started falling on Wednesday Breakwell’s phone started ringing. Bitten by their experience during the hailstorm of 2008 when thousands of vehicles were badly damaged and the wait for repairs was long, owners wanted to be at the front of the queue, he said. And the calls were still coming, people were still driving in off the road wanting a quick check, Breakwell said. “There are still a lot of people saying they don’t think they’ve got damage. I’m saying get it checked. You can’t always tell until you put the light over it.” A team of hail damage experts has set up shop in Ashburton to deal with damaged vehicles and over the weekend tidied up 25 vehicles. Breakwell anticipates they could be on site for around three months clearing the backlog.

In brief Man on murder charge A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a pregnant Opotiki woman on Tuesday night. Robert Roupere Hohua, 35, was remanded without plea to appear in the High Court at Tauranga on December 14. He was charged with murdering an Opotiki woman on Tuesday night. A police spokeswoman said police were called to the property at 10.13pm on Tuesday following reports of a domestic dispute. “On arrival at the scene a male was taken into custody and a police officer performed CPR on a woman at the address, but this was unsuccessful.” A homicide investigation was launched. -NZME

A person died after an incident in Lyttelton Harbour yesterday, though police cannot say yet what happened. A police spokeswoman told Fairfax the incident was a near drowning and the person was pulled from the water. However another spokeswoman told the Herald there were currently conflicting reports on whether or not the person had actually been pulled from the water. Paramedics treated the person at the scene, but they died, she confirmed. The incident happened at Godley Quay about 10.15am, Wednesday. - NZME

Perth schoolie caught in Bali Australian consulate officials will visit a Perth teenager who’s been detained by Indonesian police after travelling to Bali for schoolies week. Jamie Murphy, 18, was picked up after allegedly being found with a small plastic bag containing white powder at a Kuta nightclub. “The consul general in Bali has been in contact with the young man and we are arranging to visit him,” Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop told Nine Network on Wednesday. Ms Bishop said the teenager could be held for three days while an investigation takes place and another three days while a decision is made about whether or not to arrest him. The Australian government has also been in contact with his family to provide advice on issues like legal representation. The minister also took the opportunity to warn young Australians travelling to Indonesia that “the laws can be very harsh for offences or activities in Australian that might seem minor”. Mr Murphy is believed to

PHOTO NZME have just graduated from high school before arriving on the popular tourist island on Sunday with two friends. On Tuesday, he was stopped at the Kuta night spot Skygarden. Inside his bumbag, club security allegedly found white powder in a plastic bag, an ATM card and hotel keys. Kuta Police Chief Commissioner Wayan Sumara said of-

ficials were yet to confirm what the substance was. Video footage of the teen’s arrest broadcast by Nine showed him being roughly grabbed around the face and neck by a man believed to be a police officer. If the substance is found to be drugs, Mr Murphy could face a maximum of 12 years in prison if arrested and convicted.

Gerry Maio, president of the Perth-based Bayswater City Soccer Club described Mr Murphy as a wonderful young man and athlete and said the allegations were uncharacteristic of him. “He was a very promising athlete in our sport. I haven’t even seen him with a bottle of beer in his hand,” Mr Maio said. -AAP

Too trigger happy with our clicks James Ford



uesday’s Seven Sharp stunt once again stoked debate over our ability to distinguish between what is fact and fiction online, and also how we use social media. The programme’s Facebook page told viewers in a post: “We are sad to announce that Toni Street has made the decision to leave her job as host of Seven Sharp.” It cited Street’s reasons for leaving as wanting to spend more time with her family. At first glance this seems perfectly legitimate, after all, it’s certainly not unbelievable. But what did put readers’ news savviness to the test was whether they actually read the full story. Those that clicked the link will have quickly established that it was little more than a ploy to see if social media users read stories before sharing. Without a thought, we then offer dubious posts to hundreds, sometimes thousands, of our own online “friends”. We herald the internet for its ability to keep us connected, it has changed the world, offered a voice to the voiceless. But, in doing so, it has become a more powerful tool than what we could ever have imagined just two decades ago. The irresponsible sharing of incorrect news is one thing. But accusatory posts, particularly aimed at those in the same community as us, are even more damning. Community notice boards are really useful, it could be argued they serve as the perfect social platform for us to discuss issues that affect us directly. However, the way in which we use them and understand them is something that we should all be mindful of. As it stands, our very own Ashburton Notice Board has 3011 members on Facebook. I’m not suggesting members of that specific page are guilty of mistreating others or sharing incorrect information. It’s merely an example of the number of people that are able to view posts relative to the population of the area. It is an enormous proportion. This is why we need to be much more vigilant in the ways in which we use social media as a tool. A quick share without thinking, or an accusatory post without knowing all of the facts, can be damning. There’s a simple gauge, in my opinion – would you behave in person as you do on social media?

YOUR VIEW Political change Any political commentator looking back at 2016 would have to admit it’s been a year of massive change and a somewhat growing shift in voter disillusionment with the neoliberalism, and globalisation policies of western governments for the last 30 years or so. The Brexit vote in the UK, and now the huge anti-establishment vote in the American presidential elections, is surely a sharp reminder to all politicians, both at a national level and at local government level, that the common voter out there, has had enough of the status-quo, and is increasingly wanting something to change. If there is one word to sum up this discontent, it is inequality.


POLL RESULT In Britain and the US, masses of ordinary people are hurting, and struggling to make ends meet. High tax rates and even higher compliance costs, are the main drivers in widening the gap between those who enjoy an above-average income and those who are unable to see any relief. There is a growing demand for people to be better informed of the details of agreements that are being made that affect their lives. Large corporate organisations have, as a result of these policies, gained far too much power and control over our western political systems, and people are increasingly suspicious of their lack of transparency. The liberal globalisation policies that are well entrenched

in our western political systems by now, have allowed large multinationals to capture the “ear” of the elected government and wrest benefits away from the democratic system. Could this disillusionment happen in New Zealand? With inequality increasing at an alarming rate and government and local body costs rising rapidly for residents, there is certainly an affordability tipping point at which middle New Zealand is fast approaching, when they too will feel disenfranchised that the system is not working for them and that only change will offer hope. The Brexit vote, the discontent in the EU block and what has happened in the US is only an attempt to reclaim their control of their country. Interesting times! Ed Eason

later confirmed they weren’t high risk. Labour’s associate workplace safety spokeswoman Sue Moroney said the 43 deaths this year showed an “urgent rethink” was needed on workplace safety. “We always said that the agriculture sector should never have been exempted from the regulations. “Agriculture continues to be the sector with the largest number of deaths since the law change in April – with 44 per cent of the total deaths recorded between May and the end of September.” Woodhouse has been contacted for comment. – NZME

Controversially, dairy, sheep and beef farming were not classified as “high risk” industries, despite having had a high number of fatalities in the past five years. That meant farms don’t need to have health and safety representatives. Workplace Relations Minister Michael Woodhouse faced ridicule last year when it emerged worm farming and lavender farming were on a draft list of high risk industries. When categories were

Labour says sweeping health and safety changes have failed to protect New Zealanders – citing figures that show workplace deaths have not reduced. So far this year 43 people have been killed in workplace accidents. That is the same number for all of 2015. New workplace health and safety rules came into effect on April 4, as a response to the Pike River mine tragedy in 2010, in which 29 men died. It was watered down after objections in the National caucus, and businesses with fewer than 20 workers do not now need health

At the time, Labour leader Andrew Little said the decision to trim numbers was a “flip flop” by National. “It’s certainly a flip flop on their part and they’re doing it under pressure. Ever since the surge in immigration we’ve been saying there is a growing number of issues and it became apparent this year that those issues were getting acute.” NZ First leader Winston Peters has campaigned most strongly for a significant cut to immigration, which has been at record highs. The pressure new arrivals are putting on key infrastructure and housing has seen even the Green Party call for a more “sustainable” policy based on about 1 per cent of population growth. Net migration, as measured by Statistics NZ through arrival and departure cards, was at 69,100 in the year to August, and includes visitors on working holidays and temporary work or study visas who arrive for more than a year as well as the number of New Zealanders who intend staying away for more than a year. – NZME


A thousand more seasonal workers will be let into New Zealand – after the Government sought assurances that job opportunities for Kiwis would “continue to be maximised”. The current cap of foreigners who can work seasonally in horticulture and viticulture will increase from 9500 to 10,500 for the 2016/17 season. Immigration Minister Michael Woodhouse said the horticulture and viticulture industry had estimated an additional 2500 workers will be needed for the upcoming season. “The increase of 1000 recognised seasonal employer (RSE) workers shows the Government is committed to enabling the industry to continue to grow and maximise export returns, while ensuring jobs aren’t being taken from New Zealanders.” He said the increase was agreed to on the understanding the industry “continues to maximise opportunities for New Zealanders, particularly in regions with relatively high unemployment”. Social Development Minister Anne Tolley said about 500 beneficiaries were taking part in a seasonal work scheme, and further

Rural physio takes out enterprising women award

Fonterra ups traceability game

Amy Dibley of Physio Direct Ltd has been named the supreme winner of the annual Rural Women New Zealand Enterprising Rural Women Awards. Amy is from Rotorua and started up her business to meet a gap in the market. She offers physiotherapy and other allied health services in rural service towns in the Central North Island, and in Canterbury in the South Island. “Amy was a stand out finalist in the awards,” says Wendy McGowan, awards judge and national president of Rural Women New Zealand. “The judges appreciated Amy’s innovative approach and business planning skills which have grown the Physio Direct franchise. Her team offer a health service that meets the needs of rural residents, who often struggle to access services such as physiotherapy in remote towns. Well done Amy, we wish her every success for the future.” The judging panel also included Grant Rae, ANZ Private’s Associate Director, and SWAZI New Zealand’s Sales Manager, Warwick Bean and HP New Zealand’s Sales Specialist, David Farquhar. They joined McGowan in interviewing the four finalists and reviewing their financial information and also their business plans. They were very impressed with the high standard of entries. The four winners in the 2016 Enterprising Rural Women Awards were: Love of the Land Award, sponsored by Agrisea New Zealand: Marian Hirst: Bay Blueberries, Hastings:www.bayblueberries.

Fonterra is on track to have total electronic traceability to worldclass standards by 2020, from the raw milk source on-farm through every stage of manufacturing and every ingredient in every product sold in every market. Already, all New Zealand and Australian-sourced products, representing 74 per cent of total global production, can be electronically traced through the supply chain from manufacturing sites to customers. “We are now making it possible to electronically trace the goodness in every drop of milk our farmers produce and the products we make from it, so traceability will extend back to milk off farms,” says chief operating officer global consumer and foodservice, Jacqueline Chow. She said there was a growing demand by consumers for information about what goes into their food and traceability provided reassurance. Fonterra’s general manager trust in source, Tim Kirk, says Fonterra has always been able to trace products from day one, but through systems using a mix of electronic information as well as manual logs and spreadsheets. “What we are aiming for now is world-class electronic product traceability, so if we have any concerns about any product we can electronically trace it anywhere in our supply chain within three hours. We are well advanced. By the end of this year 40 per cent of our plants globally will have traceability data electronically connected, a further 50 per cent of the plants will be included by the end of 2017, and the remaining 10 per cent will be completed in 2018/2019.”

Val Palmer believes the fashions and cars in the photo are from the 40s, not the 50s and that it could be at the end of World War Two.

time of sadness.

What a great week for our bowlers. In the Lowry Cup finals, Brentton Donaldson, Roger Gutberlet and Murray Anderson featured and the final was played between Peter Collins and Roger Gutberlet with Peter being the winner, 21-20. Congrats to our players who did so well.  Brentton and Colin Arnst have both been chosen for the Junior Reps and our Senior Rep players are: Gavin Eder, Murray Anderson, Colin Dennis and Mike Quinn.   The ladies 7s team came home the winners: Congrats to Diane Gutberlet, Diana King, Shirley Taylor, Ollie Collins, Heather Goodall, Wendy Suttie and Noeline Woods.  The final of the Ladies Senior Championship was also completed on Tuesday Nov 22 and Heather Goodall defeated Wendy Herriott. Congratulations to both players.  I have also been told that an Ashburton team won the Murton Cup played at Rakaia recently.  Well done to you too. To those playing in the hot weather keep up the fluids and sun protection, both are very important.  To those not well, good wishes for a quick recovery and we will see you all soon.  To those who have lost family members our thoughts are with you in this

Ashburton Garden Club Thirty-two members attended the last meeting for the year at the Seniors Centre on November 17. After a short meeting, our guest speaker, Daphne Allison, spoke of her visits to the Christchurch Ellerslie Shows. She recalled visiting the Tent showcasing Jenni Gillies’ magnificent garments which she had created artistically with so much detail. She also spoke about the year the show had a section allocated to Schools’ Exhibitions, where each school had professionally set up their plots, their input into the exercise was very personal. Daphne is returning next year on May 18, 2017 with a DVD of the Ellerslie Shows. We finished our meeting with a Christmas themed afternoon tea. On January 19, 2017, we will gather for an Evening Garden Walk, finishing at 3 Filey Place. Venues to be confirmed.

Ashburton Golf Club Great feedback from the two “give golf a go” days that we held recently. Over 30 people took part and so far seven new members have signed up, which is great, but the job now is to welcome these new players and make them feel part of our club. Over the next couple of weeks I will be asking for helpers to come along and play a few holes, when we invite all the give golf a go people back for another fun day. This Saturday we have the Santa Marie trophy, which is also the final round of the RMF cup. One player will leave Saturday with a club sub for next year in his pocket, thanks to our great friends at Russell Moon and Fail. It looks like Ian Rive has this nailed on after a very consistent season. We also have prizes for the top six thanks to Matt Davis, Sega Golf and RMF, and I believe the 30 points on offer gives the top 20 a chance of glory. Sunday we have our re-arranged Sutherland Cup, this is a combined stableford, mixed day, any pairings. 11.30 meet for 12.00 start. Don’t forget presentation night December 3, tickets on sale, get in quick, especially prize winners, and partners. Also the AGM on December 8, please come along, we are in desperate need of members to stand up and help out on our various committees and put a little bit back into our wonderful club. Good golfing

Creative Fibre - Ashburton There was a good attendance at the November meeting. The librarian reported that we have 303 books in our library dealing with a good range of crafts.

Our president was very pleased with the 99 entries at the A&P Show and hope this will continue in the future. A team of four went to the Hororata Show in a Fleece to Garment competition and were runners-up. The team’s jersey was the first one to be bought. The Pop up Shop held last week in town was a learning experience and we felt the weather was against us in keeping people out of town. A plea was given for any gifts or money to be given to people in Kaikoura for Christmas. Show and Tell Table – In baby and toddler wear we saw three jacket and hat sets, a grey jersey, knitted fairisle dress, hat and pants, a crocheted Barbie Doll dress and a crocheted dolls bed and bag. Adult wear:- sleeveless jerkin, a brown jersey and fine cotton cape.  Other articles: a woven scarf, cushion cover, 2 woven pictures,  11 different skeins of dyed wool, year large scarf and 8 samples of felted merino scarves which were done at the Pop Up Shop. After the official meeting Pam Whiteford led interested ladies into weaving flax reindeers, followed by lunch.

Lions Club of Hinds & Districts Last Tuesday evening saw the largest turnout of members this year for a

regular monthly Tea Meeting. After President Alan Johnston’s welcome and apologies, Lion Stuart Wilson, as Patron for the Hinds Community Centre gave an update on the planned upgrade of the hall kitchen, which the club is contributing towards. An evening meal prepared by Hinds Rural Fire Service members was then served, followed by raffles. The guest speaker, Lion Peter Lowe in his capacity as Chairman of the Hinds Drains Working Party, then addressed members on the MAR Scheme and followed this with slides of graphs, monitoring results and photos. He was thanked by Lion Don McFarlane. An update on this year’s Longbeach Coastal Challenge Bike Race, which the club co-runs with Longbeach School was given by Lion Garry Brown with confirmation from him of the details for a working bee at the track. Vice-president and directors’ reports followed and in general business, members agreed to offer both financial and manpower support to the Lions Clubs affected by the recent North Canterbury earthquakes with the president to contact the clubs direct and make all necessary arrangements. Fines were imposed and a last word story was told, before President Alan closed the meeting with thanks to all for attending and contributing.

Riders show off their skills By Noah Graham

More than 100 entrants rode on pony and horseback at the Ashburton A&P Showgrounds last weekend to compete in the Dressage Ashburton Regional Championships. Riders travelled from as far away as Gore and Marlborough to show off their skills. The championship was split into 11 different categories with two additional

training levels. In the level nine group Soo Wells won the championship astride AJK Carronade. Kirsty Schist picked up the level eight championship with her horse Kinnordy Gambado and Siobhan Fauth on Hollywood Superstar taking home the reserve championship. Ashburton Dressage Group chair Nicola Sim was pleased with the presentation of the grounds and competition.

In the other levels: Barbara Chalmers is champion of level seven, Fiona Sharp claimed level six, Kirsty Schist won the level five, Sonya McLachlan obtained the level four, Rebecca Rowlands with level three, Lorraine Ward-Smith earned the level two horse, Lucy Cochrane achieved level two pony, Bailey McIntosh secured the level one horse and Emma Copplestone took home the level one pony championship.


Cane cleared, Fekitoa banned for week Mixed news for the All Blacks following citing hearings in London this morning. Malakai Fekitoa has been handed a one-match ban while Sam Cane has been cleared of foul play following Sunday’s win over Ireland. Fekitoa will not be available to play against France after being told at a disciplinary hearing that his high tackle on Simon Zebo against Ireland should have been a red and not a yellow card. As a result, Fekitoa was handed a twoweek suspension which has been reduced to one on account of his previously good disciplinary record and immediate acknowledgement on the field that he’d transgressed. The disciplinary committee, appointed

by World Rugby was chaired by Antony Davies of England, alongside Derek Bevan of Wales and John Doubleday of England. After reviewing video footage and listening to evidence and representations from Fekitoa and people on his behalf, the panel concluded that Fekitoa’s actions would have warranted a red card. They did, however, believe albeit that he had acted recklessly rather than intentionally. Fekitoa is suspended until November 27 - ruling him out for the remainder of this season and the suspension means the All Blacks will most likely pair Ryan Crotty and Anton Leinert-Brown in their midfield against France. Cane, who has already been ruled out of the France test due to injury, was cleared

by the disciplinary committee. Cane clashed with Ireland’s Robbie Henshaw and the Leinster midfield back was carried from the field on a stretcher as a results. “The Disciplinary Committee, chaired by Antony Davies (England), alongside Derek Bevan (Wales) and John Doubleday (England), having viewed video footage of the incident, listened to evidence and representations from and on behalf of the player, and reviewed all of the other evidence, concluded that Mr Cane’s actions had been accidental and that he had not therefore committed an act of foul play,” a statement read. “The citing complaint was not upheld and Mr Cane is therefore free to resume playing immediately.” - NZME

A fair process, a fair outcome and now it is time for the matter of whether the All Blacks are a dirty team to be laid to rest. Justice has been served in the cases of Malakai Fekitoa and Sam Cane and now there really isn’t any justification for anyone to harbour a sense of grievance. Now, there is not legitimate grounds to brand the All Blacks – or imply at least – that they rely a little too heavily on a bit of filth to bolster their position as the world’s best. Shutting up shop on the matter and moving on is important, not just for the sake of relations between New Zealand and Ireland, but for the good of the game. The test in Dublin was epic. The intensity of commitment from both sides was phenomenal and the collisions were at a level that had most players still dragging limbs behind them on Monday morning. Who didn’t love the ferocity of the battle? Who didn’t wince and jump at the impacts and feel the players emptying not just every last ounce of energy into the game, but their whole being? That’s what marked it as a brilliant game of rugby and to be gripped like that, to have a game that ebbs and flows like that, everyone has to accept there are going to be incidents that challenge the laws of the game. The players move too fast, the power and agility of the athletes is incredible and the two things combined mean there were will be occasions when individuals get their timing and technique wrong. And that’s individuals from both teams. No question New Zealand pushed the limits harder, were guilty of more technical and timing mistakes, but Ireland were not without sin. The cameras have caught plenty of moments that don’t look great for them but none could be considered outrageous or heinous. That’s the thing, though to be clear about: this wasn’t a test marred by needless thuggery or stupid, crass, violent actions. No one eye-gouged. No one punched or kicked. No one grabbed anyone else’s testicles, or head-butted an opponent or spat on them. The clash points were all within the context of the game and directly linked to the passion and desire - not any premeditated desire to be malicious. - NZME

In brief Taylor pinged for drugs Former Gold Coast Titans rugby league star Dave Taylor has been fined $1000 after pleading guilty to cocaine possession. The ex-Maroons and Australia Test forward, now trying resurrect his NRL career with the Canberra Raiders, faced Southport District Court yesterday and was charged with two counts of possessing the drug. 28-year-old Taylor was caught up in a Crime and Corruption Commission cocaine investigation which also nabbed Kiwi-born code-hopping star Karmichael Hunt and other Titans players. - NZME

Kristine Marriott, seen here with Longbeach School Year 8 students, Rosie Gray and Jenna Borthwick, has been appointed ATS Longbeach Coastal Challenge event ambassador for this year’s event. PHOTO SUPPLIED


Big entries for 10th challenge The tenth ATS Longbeach Coastal Challenge has proved as popular as ever with 1500 entries already filled for the event on Sunday.

Those still wanting to enter can email in to be added to a waiting list, while entries on the day will not be accepted this year.

The tenth challenge will also be the first since Kristine Marriott’s appointment as event ambassador. It is hoped Marriott will help

to encourage the next generation of athletes following personal success in the women’s cross-country event over a prolonged period.


Schools choose titles over student health By Dylan Cleaver On Saturday, 104 principals had a chance to put the health and wellbeing of their students over the prospect of winning a few titles meaningless to anybody outside the small schools rowing bubble. The principals chose titles. In a decision that has “disappointed” Rowing New Zealand officials, a move to ban lightweight rowing at secondary school level was thwarted by the people charged with acting in the best interests of their students. Sixty-seven principals voted for change, two abstained and 35 decided the fullness of their rowing programmes were too important to sacrifice on the altar of common sense. To effect the change, 75 per cent of the principals had to agree to the remit. The minority held sway. Asked why Rowing NZ sought the change, CEO Simon Peterson was frank. “The health and wellbeing of kids in that 13-18 year old age range is critical,” he said. “Our view is that dieting and weight restrictions in a noncombat sport at school level is

not required. Our position has been clear: we don’t see any benefits of having lightweight rowing divisions at secondary school level.” Rowing NZ specifically went to the principals of the NZ Secondary Schools’ Rowing Association member schools, not the coaches or programme co-ordinators. “We’re disappointed by the outcome,” Peterson admitted. The move would have put NZ Rowing in line with FISA, the body that administers the sport at an international level. But more than that, it’s just the right thing to do. Encouraging or even tacitly approving of diets and weight loss among healthy

pubescent and post-pubescent teens is plain wrong. The briefing paper that went out to all the member schools made it clear why Rowing NZ was taking this step. “There has been an increasing number of younger pupils competing in the lightweight grade and they are being exposed to an unnecessary idea of controlling weight during the years when nutrition plays a vital role in their long-term growth and development,” the paper said. “The Schools Committee holds the health and safety of our rowers and coaches paramount and the risk that lightweight rowing poses to these young pupils is

unnecessary and so significant that we feel we must present this remit now for principals to decide.” The briefing paper called on the advice of a top nutritionist and sports bodies against the practice of weight-controlled classes in non-combat sports. It beggars belief that 35 principals thought they knew better. The British Rowing Medical Sub-Committee took a lead that New Zealand should have followed. The committee determined that “excessive weight loss, fasting, or calorie-controlled diets could have a serious effect on the growth and maturation of young people”. Body image and its close cousin body shaming are very real issues, particularly among young females. Anything that can be done to eliminate them at school sports level should be a no-brainer. Yet 35 principals decided that the potential to win little-recognised national rowing titles in lightweight divisions was more important than the potential for physical and psychological harm to children they are duty-bound to protect. - NZME

Eddie Jones has found an innovative way to drive England to the top of world rugby – using drone cameras to watch training from the skies. England used drones for the first time at their Pennyhill Park training base on Tuesday afternoon, allowing Jones to analyse his team’s set-up in real-time as he strives for tactical perfection. Jones said: “The drone is fantastic for us. It’s another piece of technology that helps us accelerate the programme, allows us to have another piece of vision that sees how well we work off the ball and in rugby, work off the ball is just so important.” - NZME

Team in limbo The future of Super Black Racing remains up in the air as veteran driver Jason Bright appears poised to take their place at the Prodrive Racing stable next year. Bright is reportedly taking his Racing Entitlements Contract to the Ford outfit next season as the fourth car to work out of the same operation – the space Super Black Racing had occupied the past two Supercars seasons. Prodrive Racing co-owner Rusty French has purchased Super Black’s REC but has yet to announce where it will be placed. Super Black Racing, the only New Zealand outfit in the series, is vowing to continue on in the series but has recently lost its team boss Greg Hahn for 2017 while driver Chris Pither is off-contract and evaluating his options. - NZME

Storm delays start A storm has delayed the start of the third women’s cricket ODI between Australia and South Africa at North Sydney Oval. South Africa, who lost the first two games in Canberra, won the toss yesterday and opted to bat first, but the storm hit around 10 minutes before the scheduled start. Star allrounder Ellyse Perry, is missing with a groin niggle, Perry has been replaced by Beth Mooney, with Megan Schutt coming in for quick Holly Ferling. - AAP

Djulbic out again Perth Glory defender Dino Djulbic has again been overlooked for selection for tonight’s A-League clash with Central Coast. Djulbic hasn’t played since committing a host of errors in Glory’s 4-1 loss to Sydney a fortnight ago. Glory coach Kenny Lowe says his many options at centre back means it’s been hard to squeeze Djulbic into the squad, even on the bench. - AAP

In brief Point to prove Adam Scott feels he and Marc Leishman have a point to prove in the World Cup of Golf after failing to secure a win when teamed at Presidents Cups. World No.7 Scott and No.54 Leishman are entrusted with Australia’s title defence in the the 28-nation, two-man teams event which gets under way at Melbourne’s Kingston Heath today. Local knowledge helps ensure they start as favourites. The format is 72hole stroke play with days one and three contested as fourball (best ball) and days two and four as foursomes (alternate shot). - AAP

Voges out of shield Adam Voges’ hopes of pushing his case for aN Australian recall were dealt a blow yesterday when he failed to pass a concussion test. Voges was ruled out of Western Australia’s Sheffield Shield clash with Queensland in Townsville after failing the Cogstate concussion test. The 37-year-old hasn’t been able to play or train since being felled by a Cameron Stevenson bouncer while playing a Shield game for WA last Thursday against Tasmania. Although Voges has been recovering well, he is yet to regain full cognitive function. - AAP

Fireworks promised Caroline Wozniacki and Ana Ivanovic have been confirmed as entrants in January’s ASB Tennis Classic.


Two more stars for Auckland Caroline Wozniacki and Ana Ivanovic have added their names to the impressive list of headline acts confirmed for January’s ASB Classic. The pair, both former world number ones, join the Williams sisters Serena and Venus among a star-studded list as the full field for the Auckland tournament was announced yesterday. Having slipped to number 63 in the world this year, Ivanovic just scraped into the main draw without a wildcard. Wozniacki also took a slide in

the rankings over the first half of this year as she battled through a low patch, but the Danish star has climbed back up to end the year ranked at 19. Her return to form ensures there will be four players ranked inside the top 20, in what is being pitched as the strongest field ever assembled for the tournament. Serena is ranked at number two and Venus 17. “I think it’s fair to say the ASB Classic has become the WTA tournament of choice in the

lead-up to the Australian Open,” said tournament director Karl Budge. Of the six players to have held the world No. 1 title currently active on the circuit, four will be at the ASB Classic in January “This is unchartered territory for a sporting event in New Zealand. Any one of these four players could headline the tournament on their own. “They are the most marketable female athletes in the world. True global superstars, known simply by their first names on

every continent. Auckland is going to be the centre of the sporting world come the first week of January,” Budge said. The rest of the field includes top 30 players Barbora Strycova (20), Kiki Bertens (22) and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (27). Defending champion Sloane Stephens, ranked 35th in the world, will also return. The 23-year-old American beat Wozniacki in this year’s ASB Classic semi-final before defeating Julia Goerges 7-5, 6-2. - NZME

Australian middleweight fighter Robert Whittaker has promised fireworks when he takes on American Derek Brunson in the headline bout of Sunday’s UFC Fight Night event in Melbourne.

‘I’ve been made a scapegoat’

Warriors to play in Hamilton

South African captain Faf du Plessis says he’s made been a world cricket scapegoat by being found guilty of ball tampering. Du Plessis insists he did nothing wrong when shining the ball with saliva while sucking on a mint during the second Test against Australia in Hobart last week. “The verdict was that I was guilty,” du Plessis told reporters in Adelaide on Wednesday. “I still completely disagree with that. I felt like I have done nothing wrong ... it’s not like I was trying to cheat or anything.” Du Plessis said he had been made a “scapegoat” by the International Cricket Council, which on Tuesday found him guilty of ball tampering. Du Plessis was fined his entire match fee from the Hobart Test, given three demerit points but avoided being banned for the third Test starting today in Adelaide. “I just ask for everyone to be treated the same way,” he said. “With ball tampering, it’s a real negative ... the term cheat has been thrown around and that is something I do not take lightly. “I did nothing wrong. I was shining the cricket ball ... and every single team I have played in does the same thing.”


South Africa’s cricket captain Faf du Plessis pretends to lick his little finger as he comments in Adelaide, Australia, yesterday after being found guilty and fined for ball tampering by the International Cricket Council. PHOTO AP Cricket South Africa chief executive Haroon Lorgat said the squad will consult further with lawyers before deciding whether

to appeal the guilty verdict. Lorgat described it as unprecedented case and cited an inconsistent application of the rules

regarding ball shining. “We want to define the rules more carefully,” Lorgat said. - AAP


Hamilton’s FMG Stadium Waikato is set to host a Warriors home game for the first time next NRL season. While the opposition, date and kick-off time won’t be known until the full NRL draw is released today, Warriors managing director Jim Doyle said agreement had been reached with H3 (Hamilton City Council’s event facilities division) to use Waikato’s main stadium for the club’s one scheduled game away from Mount Smart Stadium next year. Hamilton has previously staged three NRL fixtures involving the Warriors but they were ‘away’ games brought to the city by the Parramatta Eels (2005 and 2006) and the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs (2014). “It’s fantastic that we’re able to make Hamilton a home venue for the first time,” Doyle said. “It’s a terrific stadium and it has the advantage of being so close to Auckland for so many of our members and fans. “The Vodafone Warriors have long-standing links with the Waikato region through so many players.” - NZME

Your Stars ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19): Compassion is not just a word you read in books about popes, saints and the Dali Lama. Compassion is an automatic response to your daily life. It’s who you are. TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20): There are reasons why things must go as they do, in the broader sense, the circular nature of your business will bring with it a wallop of irony. “Crops are sold for money spent on food.” – Heraclitus GEMINI (May 21-Jun 21): Gratitude will keep you centred and focused on creating the experience you want for yourself and loved ones. Your resources are abundant, and whatever you don’t have will be yours for the asking. CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 22): It’s heaven to be around people who get you, no explanation necessary. For these connections, intimate communication is subtle communication. You’ll go right to the heart of the matter. LEO (Jul 23-Aug 22): Finding a groove requires a bit of patience today, so don’t expect things to work immediately. People need to get warmed up first, and that includes you. Breathe. By noon all will sync up. VIRGO (Aug 23-Sep 22): Don’t let details bog you down. Avoid trying to prepare for every scenario. Most things will go right. Later, there will be more important things to tend to than ones you were tempted to obsess over. LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 23): Team spirit is not the job of one team member; it’s a manner in which functions of the game are exercised. Your esprit de corps will be contagious. Encourage them so it’s not all on you. SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 21): Stay out of the minutiae. Jump up to that perch that will give you the big picture view. This is the way to bring/ have/make the most fun possible out of today’s scenario. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): You’re curious about people. Sometimes that curiosity kicks in years later, when it’s too late. You’re still wondering how certain things came to be. Now is your chance to ask and avoid regret. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19): There are many delights in your arsenal of social graces. Superb manners, exemplary humour, exceptional warmth – that’s just the beginning. Wait till they taste your pie! AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): You and a loved one will understand one another as long as you’re making the effort to communicate. Because there’s so much else going on today, your usual shorthand with this person won’t work. PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20): You’re already the complete package. You’re whole. You’re perfectly you, just the way you are. Make this your mantra through the day. Sure, everyone can improve, but it’s a choice, not a necessity.

With $20 you can help give a child like Sarah a Gift of Hope towards a School Essentials kit, delivering a school uniform, books and pencils. Your kindness shows a mum like Trish she’s no longer alone, that a better future can be planned, with the Sallies alongside her every step of the way. It’s the same with a gift of $69 to provide a Christmas Hamper to make sure a family like Sarah’s get to share in the joy of Christmas.

You can also provide nights of security away from the streets with a $100 Temporary Accommodation Gift of Hope. Once a mother like Trish knows that their child is safe and warm, they start to trust again, to get the help they need.


You see, when life brings you to your knees – or to the bottom of a bridge as it did for Trish and Sarah – the physical hardship can often lead to something far worse.

This is how you bring hope back to life.

The loss of confidence, the loss of connectedness with others, the loss of self-worth and self-esteem, and eventually the loss of hope for a brighter future. And at Christmas, when others seem happy, successful and surrounded by family and friends, this sense of loss is amplified.






TOMORROW: High cloud, few spots rain. Fresh NE turns NW.




Please note all late death notices or notices sent outside ordinary office hours must be emailed to:

Thanks to your support, the Sallies were able to provide a package of practical assistance such as temporary housing, food, budgeting and parenting help. We were even able to provide a small Christmas gift that Trish could give to Sarah.

Sport Hayne on notice NRL star Jarryd Hayne has escaped punishment over the video of him partying with an alleged bikie on the Gold Coast. After a two-month investigation, the NRL integrity unit has put the Titans fullback on notice and warned him against associating with criminals. “The Integrity Unit has completed its inquiry into the Jarryd Hayne video,” an NRL spokesman said. “No action will be taken but the Integrity Unit has sent Jarryd a letter reminding him not to associate with anyone who would damage the image of the game.”

Eight to play Fast Fours Two sections of four teams will contest the pre-Christmas rounds of the Fast Fours competition at the Ashburton Trust Tennis Centre. In Section two, Hackers played Turkey Thyne with Dallas Scott and Phil Crozier producing an epic clash. Crozier took the first set 4-1, Scott the second 4-2, before heading into the sudden death point in the final set tiebreak, which Scott won. It was the Hackers only win, though. Mary-Anne Thyne proved too cunning for Oliver McKeown,

and provided a great combination with Crozier to win the doubles convincingly. MatJade’s encounter with Coldplay saw the Brosnahan sisters play each other for the first time. Big sister Christal came out on top for Coldplay over Jade 4-3, 4-2. Meanwhile, Jade’s doubles partner Mathieu Lucas was firing on all cylinders to beat Erin Connelly-Whyte by the same score, although he needed a sudden death tiebreak point in the first set. MatJade then used their estab-

lished combination to take the deciding doubles 4-0, 4-2. In Section one, Double A’s Adam Wilson overpowered Connor Brosnahan, only dropping a solitary game, but teammate Andrew Hunt struck Tyler Leonard in good form after the Gala Cup weekend and went down 2-4, 1-4. Hunt and Wilson dominated the doubles 4-2, 4-1 to take the win over the FlynnTyler team 2 matches to 1. On the front courts, former teammates Rhys Cromie and Peter Leonard opposed each other in Mavericks match with Bullets. Cromie had a long, high qual-

ity singles match with Aidan Mitchell, winning the first set 4-2 but needed a tiebreak at 3-3 in the second, taking that 5 points to 3. Leonard gained revenge, though, showing no mercy against Jarrad Hill in their singles match. The deciding doubles was game for game, and needed a first set tiebreak to split the teams, with Mavericks’ Cromie and Hill, taking it 5-1. They then took their momentum into the second set, winning 4-2 to take the match, and the overall result 2 matches to 1.

Ross Taylor cleared to train with Black Caps New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor has been given the all clear to train with the team in Hamilton ahead of Friday’s second test against Pakistan. Taylor has been troubled by sight issues in his left eye in recent months. He saw an optom-

etrist in Christchurch and has seen one specialist. “He was given a clearance to train with us today and he’s going to leave early to see another specialist this afternoon,” New Zealand coach Mike Hesson said yesterday.

More stars coming P16

“That will determine whether he is available for the next test.” Hesson said it would not be until after the specialist visit that they will have a clear indication on whether Taylor will be ready for the test. “But he’s been given clearance

to train and that’s a really good sign. I think he’s feeling a lot better now (he has the training clearance).” He acknowledged surgery may be in the 77-test veteran Taylor’s immediate future. - NZME

Injury-plagued speedster Pat Cummins has been named in Australia’s 14-man squad to play New Zealand in the three Chappell-Hadlee ODI matches in Australia early next month. Cummins has been in and out of Australian teams for several seasons, bugged by injuries but at his best is a seriously quick addition to their fast bowling ranks. The surprise name is West Australian allrounder Hilton Cartwright, picked for the first time.

Sonny Bill ‘happy’ Injured All Black Sonny Bill Williams, who is expecting his second child with wife Alana Raffie, said that now is “the happiest I’ve been for a long time”. Williams was ruled out of rugby for the year after rupturing his achilles tendon during the New Zealand Sevens Olympic campaign in Brazil. Despite the injury keeping him sidelined, 31-year-old Williams said that the past few months have been some of the most enjoyable he has experienced. Williams said: “to be honest it’s probably the happiest I’ve been for a long time”.
