for parents, but the wind gusts up here are massive,” he said. The only buses that ran yesterday afternoon were those taking Mt Hutt College students back to Ashburton. The Methven schools followed their snow procedures in cancelling bus services, but unlike snow, the wind situation was a little more difficult to gauge, Mr Murphy said. Methven Primary had 120 children affected by the cancelled bus service and he anticipated there would be about 200 affected at Mt Hutt College. By 4pm Mr Murphy said most children had been collected by parents. While winds also battered Ashburton yesterday afternoon at their peak they were well below their peak for this spring’s nor’west storms. A wind speed of 98.8 kilometres per hour was recorded in Ashburton on September 10. Yesterday, however, set a spring record for high temperatures, with the mercury rising to 28.1°C at 3.36pm.

Biting spiders force UK school closure

Creepy crawlies, in the form of a venomous spider infestation, has forced a school in Britain to close a week before Halloween. The Dean Academy, a secondary school in south-west England’s Gloucestershire, said it was closing yesterday to get rid of the false widow spiders. The spiders are commonly mistaken for their relative, the black widow spider, whose bite can be fatal. Experts say the Steodata nobilis are becoming more common in the UK and are the most dangerous of the 12 species of biting spiders known in Britain. – AP

Local dad’s dedication pays off

Dakota helps pick her Grey Actress Dakota Johnson has taken on an active role in helping producers find the perfect star to portray her onscreen lover in the Fifty Shades of Grey film after Charlie Hunnam’s recent departure. The Sons of Anarchy star pulled out of playing Christian Grey in the big screen adaptation of writer EL James’ erotic novel earlier this month, leaving Universal Pictures bosses scrambling to recast his role. However, producer Michael De Luca reveals they’ve been receiving a helping hand from Johnson as they search for a replacement to appear opposite her Anastasia Steele. – WENN Left – Top Christian Grey contenders, Jamie Dornan (left) and Alexander Skarsgard.

Thirteen hours spent in the cold, a long uncomfortable night sleeping in his car, one dollar in his pocket and a mattress at the ready in case he had to spend the night on the footpath. This Mid Canterbury man isn’t a hobo, he is a father, and these were the lengths he went to yesterday to buy a pair of diamond stud earrings for his three-year-old daughter. Staff at the Michael Hill Ashburton branch said that he was the first in and left the store very satisfied with the earrings he paid $1 for, worth close to $500.

Cat survives crossbow shooting If cats have nine lives, Moo Moo may only have eight left. The New Zealand pet cat has had an “extraordinarily lucky” escape from death after he was shot in the head by a crossbow. The crossbow bolt went straight through Moo Moo’s skull, entering just above his eye but missing all brain tissue. The four-year-old local of Wainuiomata had surgery on Wednesday to remove the bolt and he’s now on the mend. Massey Veterinary Teaching Hospital says Moo Moo shouldn’t suffer any long-term effects and is “bright and happy” after surgery. “There was a little bit of injury to his nose and eye socket, but he’s an extraordinarily lucky cat,” vet Dr Jonathan Bray said. – AAP


Cheeky visit to stuck bus Ahipara-based tour company Sand Safaris lost one of its buses on 90 Mile Beach this week – but at least one local person saw a silver lining. As the low tide turned and waves began reaching the bus late on Tuesday, the man emerged from the vehicle, clutching something in one hand. Asked by Houhora’s resident police officer, Senior Constable Tracee Knowler, what he had helped himself to, he replied: “Just a sandwich.” The bus came to grief as it was heading south from a trip to Cape Reinga, apparently hitting a deep hole below rocks immediately north of The Bluff. – APNZ

Stand may be completed for rugby final BY SUE NEWMAN


The collective fingers and toes of Mid Canterbury’s rugby fans will be crossed for the next 24 hours as the progress of building work that will see the reopening the Ashburton Showground’s grandstand. Last weekend rugby supporters struggled for good viewing spots during the home side’s Heartland semi-final match against the West Coast, but for tomorrow’s final there’s every chance viewing options will be improved. The grandstand was marked out of bounds in September last year after an engineering report found earthquake strengthening work was needed. A decision on the strengthening options was made two weeks ago and Ashburton A&P Association president David Bennett said that meant work could get underway to bring it back in use by next week’s twoday show. However, with Mid Canterbury winning its way through to the Meads Cup final efforts were stepped up to have the grandstand back in play by the big match. Builders were working at full pace yesterday bolting steel trusses on the outside and inside the building, which offers prime views of the main rugby field. The work will cost around $45,000. While the Heartland final provided the impetus to speed up the work, Mr Bennett said the weather or unexpected de-

lays might yet make that impossible. “We are doing what we can,” he said. For Mid Canterbury Rugby chief executive Ian Patterson, having the stand back in action is the icing on what has been a great year for the district’s rugby fans. “We’re working on the theory that it will be available. It’ll be fantastic to have it back, it’ll change the logistics of the day quite dramatically,” he said. Last weekend about 2000 people turned out to watch Mid Canterbury score a win over the Coasters with a last minute try and he anticipates with the stand available crowd numbers will be double that for the final. The stand can seat up to 500 people and it’ll be a case of first in best seated tomorrow, Mr Patterson said. Anticipating the stand would be out of action, ticket prices have been kept low. “At $10 an adult that’s pretty cheap for a final so we hopeful we’ll get the big crowds there.”

ple attending the festival had grown from strength to strength with more than 200 last year. “We are grateful for the support of the Ashburton District Council who has helped make this celebration possible.” Mr Sukul said the spiritual meaning of the event was about forgiving the bad things of the past year and taking happiness and love into the year ahead. The festival symbolises the triumph of light over darkness and the renewal of life. Families light lamps, candles and fireworks to symbolise the triumph of light over dark-

ness, and good over evil. “It brings light into people’s hearts,” Mr Sukul said. He said the Ashburton event will cater for children and adults from all walks of life, and everyone was welcome. The formal part of the ceremony involving a welcome dance, speeches and the lighting of candles gets under way in the Balmoral Hall, on Cameron Street, at 7pm, followed by a fireworks ceremony beginning at about 8pm. A shared meal and Diwali sweets will be offered, with many guests contributing dishes, in return for a gold coin donation.

Over 1000 children vaccinated By Michelle NelSoN

More than 1000 Mid Canterbury preschoolers have received free hepatitis A vaccinations as part of Canterbury DHB’s response to the outbreak. The number falls just 120 short of the number required to achieve “herd immunity” – the level of coverage required to prevent further spread of the

Death a mystery

disease. Almost 900 children aged between 12 months and five years were vaccinated at six clinics, and 127 preschoolers were vaccinated at preschool clinics this month. Dr Alistair Humphrey, Canterbury Medical Officer of Health, commended the Ashburton community for the response. “This is a fantastic effort by the Ashburton community. A

few more vaccinations and we will be well within a level of coverage which will prevent further spread,” Dr Humphrey says. “The clinics have been very busy, but poor weather conditions probably kept families away early on. We need to vaccinate at least 120 more preschoolers to achieve 70 per cent coverage.” “If you have a preschool child

over 12 months old you can still take them to your general practice team where the vaccination will be free of charge. “As well as providing immunity to the child, the vaccine also protects their older siblings, family, friends and anyone who may come into contact with them.” There have been 28 confirmed cases since the hepatitis A outbreak began in April this year.

The last case was notified on August 28. The disease is transmitted when people fail to wash their hands properly after going to the toilet. As pre-schoolers are generally hand-washing novices, spread of the disease is often through this group. Nearly every case in the Ashburton outbreak had a direct contact with an infected preschooler.


By Matthew BackhouSe A rural road near Wanaka is being searched for a mystery object which smashed through a car windscreen yesterday morning, killing the driver and forcing his passenger to grab the steering wheel. Police have launched an investigation after the incident on the Lake Hawea-Albert Town stretch of State Highway 6, between Wanaka and Hawea, about 6.25am yesterday. Initial indications were that the driver of a blue Subaru car travelling towards Wanaka suffered fatal injuries when he was hit by something that smashed through the windscreen of his car, police said. His female passenger was uninjured in the incident. Police are calling for sightings of a late-model white 4x4 ute that was heading out of Wanaka, on the north side of the Maungawera Hill towards Hawea, some time between 6.15am and 6.45am yesterday. The ute may have been in the area at the time of the incident and police would like to talk with the driver. Rosie Foster, who was housesitting at a friend’s right by the crash scene, said she did not hear the crash, but heard sirens early yesterday morning. She had spoken to a police officer who told her the passenger of the fatally injured driver had to grab the steering wheel. “He said that something had flown out the back of a car and hit the windscreen of another car, and gone straight though and killed the driver. Ms Foster said police did not know what the object was and had not found it despite searching the grass sides of the road. “They said it could be anything from something that’s flown off the back of a trailer or even if they’ve thrown something out the window.” - APNZ

Volunteers hard at work ahead of opening By GaBrielle Stuart

With just days until the opening of the new Ashburton Red Cross opportunity shop, the countdown is on and volunteers are hard at work setting up the bright new store on Burnett Street. The light, spacious new shop has come a long way from the first Red Cross shop in Ashburton, which opened from a garage in 1970. It has been more than a year since the Havelock Street Red Cross shop was closed due to earthquake damage, and many

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED Volunteers are still needed at the new Ashburton Red Cross Shop on Burnett Street. To volunteer call Grace on 308-1705 or to donate call Dawn on 308-0133. volunteers have moved on while the donated goods were sent to other stores around the country. It has taken months of work

to co-ordinate goods and volunteers for the opening of the new store, but they now have 27 volunteers signed up and donated goods are filling the shelves. National Retail Administrator Anneliese Geursen flew to Ashburton this week to help organise and set up the new shop, and will be based here until the grand opening on Wednesday. She said the store was still short on bric-a-brac and that any donations would be appreciated. She is also on the hunt for volunteers to man the shop, as

many of the volunteers only work a few shifts a month and there were still plenty of gaps to fill in the roster. Funds raised from Red Cross shops help support many community services, including community transport, meals on wheels, emergency response and disaster preparedness. The new Red Cross shop opens at 10am on Wednesday 30, and can be found on Burnett Street opposite the Arcade. The shop opening hours will be 9am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 1pm on Saturdays.

In brief


One-stop centre applauded By Sue NewmaN

Ashburton people have applauded the idea of an integrated family health centre in the grounds of Ashburton Hospital, saying it would create a one-stop health care shop. More than 80 per cent of people who made submissions on the Canterbury District Health Board’s proposal to establish a privately owned centre in the hospital’s grounds believe it would improve accessibility to a wide range of health services. The CDHB ticked off support for the project at its meeting in September and opted to move


ahead with a formal request for a proposal for the development of the facility. It also agreed to enter into discussions with private providers. Submissions on the proposal followed a public meeting in Ashburton in July and involved two options – a private developer building the centre on hospital land or for a developer to also lease unused hospital facilities. Support was overwhelming for the centre concept with most who responded saying gathering a range of health services in one place would have huge benefits. A common theme in the responses was that the integrated health centre would make it eas-

ier to attract general practitioners to Ashburton. The facility was also seen as a way of improving after hours care and easing the workload on GPs. The most commonly supported services were general practice, community pharmacy, laboratory services, primary mental health services and community nursing. The responses also included concerns, particularly around conflicts of interest and competitive advantages. There were also concerns over who decided what services would go into the new facility and who would provide these.

When the CDHB released the health centre proposal earlier this year it was supported by mayor Angus McKay who described it as the ultimate option for primary health care in the district well into the future. He described the concept as “brilliant” and said the hospital site was the only sensible location for the centre. The site proposed will become available once the demolition of the hospital’s two storied outpatients block and its theatre suite are demolished. They will be replaced by a new theatre suite and procedure room, but a large area of land fronting Elizabeth Street will remain unused.

Closed for repairs The main entrance foyer at Christchurch Women’s Hospital is closed for about a week to allow for earthquake repairs until next Wednesday (October 30). Visitors and patients to the hospital will need to use the lower ground floor rear entrance while this work is under way. The main reception and café facilities will also be relocated to the lower ground floor during this time and traffic controllers and security will be onsite around the hospital to direct people where to go.

Good U3A response Fifty-six people attended a meeting in Ashburton this week on establishing a U3A (University of the Third Age) in the town. Among speakers were Colleen Young of the North West Christchurch U3A. The Ashburton group has been proposed by a three residents - Edith Smith, Anne Fleming and Linda Baker. The trio said they were impressed with the turnout to the meeting. U3A is a worldwide movement offering education for over 55s, being more so learning for learning’s sake rather than offering qualifications. More information is available from Linda Baker on 308-5465.

Driver ‘about ready to go pop’ By SuSan SandyS

Truck drivers passing through Ashburton have taken advantage of free health checks, in which some have been shown to have dangerously high blood pressure levels. The Rural Canterbury Primary Health Organisation (RCPHO) has joined with police and the New Zealand Truck Drivers’ Association to offer the checks. More may be held after the success of two held so far, and shearers may also be set to benefit. Some drivers who received

the health checks, which were undertaken in a caravan at the Tinwald weigh bridge, had “scary” blood pressure levels, according to senior sergeant Warren Newbury. And one driver was “about ready to go pop” with a reading of 220/140. “We had a couple at that level, where you’re just waiting for something to happen.” RCPHO Maori health manager Wayne Smith said the second health check was on May 29, after the first one in December. The readings at the second had not been as bad as the first, but 40 per cent of the 22 who were tested had recorded blood

pressures at the higher end of normal. And 10 per cent had slightly higher than normal blood sugar levels. Four signed up for smoking cessation programmes and 40 per cent were going to make some lifestyle changes after speaking with health promoters. The health check service went so far as to make an appointment with a GP for the people who needed it, and paid for that appointment. Mr Smith said truck driving was a sedentary job with long hours. Often drivers were not getting enough exercise and were subsisting on a bad diet.

“It’s a time thing, these guys are travelling all over New Zealand and all over the South Island. So they really appreciate us being there in their work time,” Mr Smith said. Rural Transport general manager Jim Crouchley in Ashburton said whether truck drivers were fit or not could depend on the type of driving they did. While milk tanker driving offered little exercise, stock truck driving was the opposite. One driver was 67 but looked like he was in his 50s. “It’s physical work but he’s forced to do it every day because that’s the nature of the job,” Mr Crouchley said.

Woman fleeced A thief with a stolen money card has fleeced a 92-year-old Whangarei woman of more than $10,000 by making withdrawals at money machines, buying Fanta and chips from service stations and putting her $1000 into overdraft.

Travel plans upset

Current tenants of The Arcade say redevelopment plans will breathe new life into the shopping precinct. photo donna Wylie 221013-dW-147

Tenants give backing to landlord’s plans By Sue newman

Tenants in the Ashburton Arcade have given a unanimous thumb’s up of approval to their landlord’s plans to redevelop their shopping precinct. On Tuesday Barry Redmond released plans for a massive redevelopment project on the arcade site and his tenants say it is a project that will breathe new life into the shopping precinct. Mr Redmond’s plans for a new arcade will see a modern, light-filled complex built on the site. There are two tenants who

have called the arcade home for most of its 32 years. Sharon and Donald McQuarters were day one tenants. They were already in business with their clothing shop Denim Den when the arcade opened and they’ve remained in business throughout that time. Today they run a new shop in the centre of the arcade, Chicago Joes, but Denim Den is still there in its original Burnett Street slot. They’re applauding the plans for change. “It will be good for Ashburton. The original arcade was a good thing for Ashburton and this will be good. It’s exciting

and it will bring shopping back into the centre of town,” Mrs McQuarters said. “People are all positive about it and having a food court in here will be fantastic. This will bring more people into the arcade so it’s a win all round.” Annette Fyfe is the arcade’s other long time tenant and she said the redeveloped arcade would bring in even more out of town shoppers. “We get a lot now and they all say they love Ashburton because its shops are unique.” While there was a lot of detail still to come, the redevelopment project was described as

fantastic by Robilliards owner Mark Douglas. “It was great at the meeting we had to see that the support was unanimous for going forward with this. It’s great that the Redmonds are prepared to do this. They could have just shut up shop.” Bob McDonald is another who was delighted to see the rebuild plans laid out and to know that the arcade’s earthquake issues were being dealt with in such a positive way. “It’s a major development and we’re thrilled. The design looks really good and it’s great to see something will be done so well.”

Blustery winds around the lower North Island have disrupted travel plans and caused damage to several properties. A flight from Dunedin to Wellington yesterday was diverted to Palmerston North due to strong winds. According to MetService, gusts of up to 83km/h were recorded at the airport. The Fire Service also attended at least three weather-related jobs, including a shattered window and loose roofing. - APNZ

School in mourning; husband devastated A Canterbury school is mourning the loss of a “devoted and passionate” teacher who was accidentally run over and killed by her husband on Wednesday night. Jon Winskill is “devastated”, family say, after reversing over his wife Denise Robinson-Winskill in a 4WD farm ute about 8pm. The accident happened on their sprawling Ellesmere Rd lifestyle block near Lincoln on the southern outskirts of Christchurch. Mrs Robinson-Winskill, a respected 58-year-old English teacher and former dean at Cashmere High School, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her city school posted a notice on its website yesterday morning, offering help for staff and students, some of whom were in tears at the devastating news. It paid tribute to a “devoted and passionate teacher and much loved member of our Cashmere school community”. “This sudden loss of our colleague and teacher will be difficult for many in our school,” it said. “Consideration of each other over the next days will be important as people deal with this tragic loss. Our love, thoughts and prayers are with Denise’s family and friends during this difficult time.” Principal Mark Wilson was not returning calls yesterday. Police say the incident happened in a utility area within the property, which has sheep and cows grazing on it. It was being treated as an accidental death, said Detective Sergeant Richard Quested.

Straight Croissants

“Police are undertaking a scene examination to confirm the circumstances of the accident,” he said. Mr Winskill’s aunt, Lorna Winskill, was stunned by news of the tragedy. “Jon will be devastated. It’s awful.” Another person close to the family said: “Words can’t describe how devastated Jon is. I mean, what can you say?” The matter has been referred to the coroner. Neighbour Andre Davies said the couple had lived there for about a year. She described Mrs Robinson-Winskill as a “lovely, beautiful woman”. Her husband owned South Island Vegetation Control, a contract weed spraying and tree work business, and the couple had grown-up children, Mrs Davies said. “We heard sirens but didn’t put two and two together. It’s very sad.” Her husband Justin Davies said the couple “did everything together”. “It’s just the worst thing anyone could ever imagine. I don’t how Jon’s going to be.” Police were still at the scene yesterday. Two tents had been erected, with one covering a 4WD farm ute vehicle. Bruce and Kay Rivers lived by the couple at nearby Tai Tapu for about five years. Her death came as a “terrible shock” to Mrs Rivers. “We lived out in the country, so we used to wave out to each other, she’d pop in for a cup of tea. She was a good neighbour, a lovely lady ... a very clever lady. “It’s a terrible shock, a terrible thing to have happened.” - APNZ

IPAC report clears police By Patrice Dougan Police officers who chased and shot dead an armed teenager broke a number of police policies, but were justified in the shooting, a report into the incident concluded yesterday. Lachan Kelly-Tumarae, 19, died after being shot numerous times in a stand-off with officers in Hawkes Bay in March 2011. The Independent Police Conduct Authority (IPCA) released its report into the fatal shooting yesterday, finding the officer who pulled the trigger was “justified in firing as he genuinely believed his life was under immediate threat”. However, it also found other aspects of the police response that day “did not comply with relevant police policies or meet standards of good practice”. One of the armed officers who took part in the low-speed chase of Mr Kelly-Tumarae, after he was spotted with a shotgun which he had taken from his grandmother’s home, was not authorised to carry a weapon. However, he was not the policeman who shot the teen. IPCA chairman Judge Sir David Carruthers said the police response was “in many respects exactly as it should have been”. “The officer who shot Mr Kelly-Tumarae intended to incapacitate an armed offender and so remove a threat to his own life,” he said. “Having decided to use his pistol, he continued to fire until he perceived that the immediate threat to his life had passed. In those circumstances the force used was justified.” Mr Kelly-Tumarae had left his grandmother’s home in Flaxmere, early on March 28, with his late grandfather’s shotgun. He had both alcohol and cannabis in his system from the night before. The teenager was spotted by a routine patrol crouching beside a car, and when they stopped,

he approached and pointed the weapon at them. The officers sped off and reported the incident to their communications centre. An 18km pursuit through suburban Napier began after Mr Kelly-Tumarae drove away in his grandmother’s car and ended up outside the main entrance to the Omahu Marae Cemetery, where his grandfather was buried. The teen got out of the car with the shotgun and pointed it at an officer parked close by. A policeman in a second vehicle got out of his patrol car and aimed his Glock pistol at Mr Kelly-Tumarae, shouting “armed police”. The 19-year-old ran towards the cemetery, then stopped and turned around, aiming his gun at the armed officer. “Fearing that Mr Kelly-Tumarae was going to shoot him, the officer discharged a volley of shots. Mr Kelly-Tumarae remained standing, and believing he had missed, the officer fired another volley of shots,” the report says. A total of 14 bullets were fired from the police officer’s weapon, with four wounding the teen, the report said. Sir David acknowledged there was “room for improvement” in how the police had communicated with the teenager’s family following the shooting and during the investigation; in particular, the failure to explain the bullet-ridden clothes when they were returned to the family nine months after the shooting. However, he said it was Mr Kelly-Tumarae “who initiated this incident” and police had “no option” but to follow him. The authority made a number of recommendations, including amendments to policy around the use of carrying guns. An investigation last year found the officer who shot Mr Kelly-Tumarae was not criminally liable for his death. - APNZ

Dream about to be finally realised By gaBrielle Stuart

It is already highly endorsed by Ashburton preschoolers, and a children’s book by local early childhood teacher Kayla Anderson is about to hit the country after she won a $5000 AMP scholarship. She is one of two Canterbury winners of the Rothbury Risk AMP regional scholarship this year, picked from a pool of more than 90 applicants. The early childhood teacher wrote and illustrated the story two years ago while she was at university, and she said that having the funds to be able to

publish it at last was a dream come true. “It’s a dream that has been in the pipeline for quite a while. It still doesn’t quite feel real.” The book Ko koe toku Mama? is written in Te Reo Maori and is the story of a kiwi who lost his mother. “It’s very hard to find resources to help children learn Te Reo, and often they’re really complicated. “This is a simple story, and the images are simple handcrafted designs.” She said that one of her goals was to inspire children to realise they could create similar pieces themselves.

The money would go towards publishing and advertising the story, which she hoped could be distributed in preschools. The other $5000 regional scholarship went to mezzo soprano Amy Jansen from Canterbury University, whose dream is to sing the title role in Carmen at London’s Covent Garden. Rothbury Risk Ashburton advisor Janet Holmes said she was delighted to have such talented women as AMP scholarship winners this year. “We will follow their progress and look forward to being part of making their dreams come true.”


Police reimpose tougher rules, penalties for long weekend Police patrols will be highly visible across the country this Labour Day Weekend as police focus on two of the greatest road safety risks: speed and alcohol. For the holiday period, anyone who drives more than four kilometres over the permanent posted speed limit is liable to be ticketed, says superintendent Carey Griffiths, national manager of road policing. Fixed speed cameras will be active throughout the holiday period, and mobile speed cam-

eras will be deployed to their maximum operating hours. “If you crash – regardless of the cause – your speed is the difference between serious injury and death, or between walking away and being maimed for life,” he said. “One of the most effective things police can do to save lives is to enforce speed limits, because research clearly shows it encourages people to slow down.” Police will also run highly visible compulsory breath test

and licence checkpoints which target the times and places where people are most likely to drink. “We want people to know we’re there before they go drinking, so they don’t take the risk of driving later on,” superintendent Griffiths said. Drivers stopped for any reason can also expect to be breath-tested. Police will also check everyone is travelling with the correct restraints, including rear seat passengers and children.

Orphans vent anger Orphans who lost their parents when a garment factory complex collapsed in Bangladesh have vented their grief and anger at leading Western retailers on the six-month anniversary of the disaster. Relatives of the 1135 people who lost their lives when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed on April 24 also said they had still to receive any compensation for their loss as they rallied at the site of the tragedy yesterday. “We lost our parents for your work: Walmart, Carrefour, Benetton ...,” read a banner held by a group of orphans, listing some of the retailers whose clothing was made at Rana Plaza. - AFP

Firestarters apologise The defence department has apologised for starting the biggest blaze in the NSW bushfire crisis but some Blue Mountains residents don’t think “sorry” goes far enough. Acting Chief of Defence, Air Marshall Mark Binskin yesterday offered an apology over the massive State Mine Fire that has destroyed three homes and burned through nearly 50,000 hectares of land west of Sydney. The bushfire continues to rage at emergency level between Lithgow and the Blue Mountains more than a week after it was sparked by explosives training on army land at Marangaroo on October 16. Blue Mountains resident Erin Cater said no one should criticise the army, but she said it would be fair for people who lost their homes to receive more than an apology. - AAP

He said the man’s death was also hit home for all those trying to fight bushfires across the state. “It’s not only tough for the individual’s colleagues, it’s tough for everybody involved in this firefighting operation,” Supt Cassar said. “That is the nature of the business, and the risks that are

associated with this sort of response.” RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said the man’s death will affect firefighters as well as the man’s family. “It’s a tragedy for the fire fighting community, but first and foremost it’s a tragedy for this man’s family,” Mr Fitzsimmons said. “He’s a husband with young children and we’re all acutely aware that there’s a family suf-

fering today because their dad didn’t come home.” Premier Barry O’Farrell offered his condolences to the pilot’s family and friends, saying his death highlights the danger all emergency personnel and volunteers faced every day while protecting the community. “They put themselves in danger on our behalf and we are all truly grateful,” he said in a statement. - AAP

In brief

Pilot’s body remains in bush The body of a pilot whose plane crashed as he tried to fight the NSW bushfires remains in remote wilderness after fire prevented rescuers from recovering his body. Police say it is too dangerous for rescue crews to retrieve the 43-year-old pilot, who crashed his plane trying to put out a blaze in bushland in the state’s south. The pilot became the second casualty of the NSW bushfires when his fixed-wing waterbomber crashed in remote bushland west of Ulladulla. The unnamed pilot, a father from Trangie in central NSW, was responding to several blazes in the Budawang National Park when his plane went down. After several attempts, helicopter crews were able to winch personnel down to the crash site and confirm the pilot had died. But flames and fierce winds in the rugged bushland forced them to retreat before they could recover his body. Superintendent Joe Cassar from Shoalhaven Local Area Command said the situation was extremely challenging for rescuers, who tried their best in the most difficult of circumstances. He said crews now faced the daunting task of waiting until first light before they could attempt to reach the pilot again, but wouldn’t stop until he was returned to his family. “It is far too dangerous to send any personnel down there to retrieve the pilot,” Supt Cassar told reporters in Nowra. “As soon as the conditions are in our favour we will retrieve that pilot.” Supt Cassar could not confirm reports one of the plane’s wings was torn off, but said the crash was believed to have sparked another smaller fire. It’s not known whether the pilot was a Rural Fire Service (RFS) member or contracted by the service to help with the state’s bushfire crisis. The man’s family had been informed, and police were continuing to liaise closely with them. Supt Cassar said everyone

David Kimaiyo told reporters it was “very clear that there is limit” to media freedom. “We are looking within the law very closely for those individuals who in one way or another might have committed crimes ... that soon they would

be apprehended and appear before the court,” he said. Journalists from Kenya’s KTN television station - which like other media has reported widely on the ransacking of the upmarket shopping mall - are among those threatened with arrest.

India’s Supreme Court has agreed to hear a petition seeking the cancellation of this weekend’s Indian Grand Prix because organisers have allegedly not paid entertainment taxes for the 2012 event. “We will hear the petition tomorrow,” Chief Justice P. Sathasivam said in court yesterday, announcing a new legal snag for Formula One in India which has been dogged by problems since the inaugural 2011 event.

Bronco ‘enforcer’ A former Brisbane Bronco NRL player was the standover man in an outlaw motorcycle gang’s ice ring worth $2.5 million, police allege. Michael Spence, 25, was remanded in custody after his bail application was adjourned until today. Police allege Spence was the racket’s debt collector and enforcer and was the sergeantof-arms of the Hells Angels gang’s Brisbane city chapter. The amphetamines business was allegedly run by patched Hells Angels members Bruno and Nuno Da Silva from a locksmith business between June 2012 and October this year. All three were among eight men arrested by police during a major drugs bust on Wednesday. Police alleged in an affidavit Spence had bought a $560,000 house with his girlfriend at Cannon Hill in Brisbane’s east despite having a minimal income, and was living beyond his means on drug profits. - AAP

Rural mail still getting through Coen Lammers EDITOR


he decision to opt for a five-day postal service to rural areas is a major coup for the people living outside of town. It is also a massive relief for businesses and services working in those regions and relying on New Zealand Post for delivery. The rumblings from New Zealand Post that it could no longer sustain the current level of delivery because of sharply falling mail volumes sent shockwaves through the rural community. The issue has been a hot topic among farming folk and was a regular question for this editor during recent public engagements. Rural folk are well aware that their daily Guardian is one of the businesses heavily reliant on the rural runs, so this week’s news was a relief for both the Guardian and our readers. As the deed governing the obligations by New Zealand Post does not kick in until 2015, it will give all parties concerned sufficient time to announce any changes and make up contingency plans. The Government’s decision clearly reflects the deafening outcry from the rural public and the sectors that are dealing with the rural people. Nobody will deny that ‘snail’ mail in many areas has been replaced by email and other forms of electronic communications, but outside of urban areas the run to the mail box is still a crucial part of daily life. Many urban folk in Mid Canterbury will be negatively affected when their delivery is cut back to three days, but even they will understand that the current postal services have become unsustainable. The announcement this week at a glance sounds like a pragmatic compromise but the real issues will not become apparent until the details of the new proposals are revealed. If New Zealand Post gives all affected parties plenty of notice the district should be able to cope with the proposed changes. Times are changing but at least the farmers will still be making their daily trip to the post box for some years to come.

Pedestrian safety I don’t live here, but frequently come to Ashburton to visit and have noticed that cars seldom, if ever, stop at the pedestrian crossings. Usually I don’t even attempt to cross if there are cars coming from either direction. However yesterday due to the road works outside the Devon Tavern I couldn’t see any cars coming, so I crossed, only to have to run not to be run over. If I was a child I’d be dead. E.

Choose the right health cover T hinking about health insurance can be daunting, but choosing policies carefully could save you money in the long run. Medical insurance premiums vary by sex, age, current health status, and the likelihood of making a claim. Southern Cross, the country’s largest health insurer, has released its top five surgical claims for men and women. The results show the sexes tend to suffer vastly different health problems, and people need to take this into account when deciding on insurance. Who needs what? Men in their 20s and 30s claim the most for hernias and endoscopic sinus surgeries, while women in the same age bracket predominantly claim for endometriosis procedures, abdominal adhesions and ovarian cyst surgeries. Southern Cross Health Society chief executive Peter Tynan says the differences highlight the need for those taking out health insurance to check that their policy covers them for what they’re most likely to need. “Men, in particular those in their 20s and 30s, think they’re invincible but I think information like this goes to show that no one’s immune from developing conditions that require surgical treatment,” Tynan says. And going under the knife doesn’t come cheaply. What does it cost? Although surgical procedures make up 7 per cent of the claims Southern Cross deals with, they account for threequarters of the total cost. Endometriosis surgery and hernia repairs, considered quite common procedures, can cost up to $9500. More intensive surgeries such as hip and knee replacements can sting patients with a bill of $20,000-plus. Health insurance is one area where customers “get what

they pay for” and going over your policy with a fine tooth comb - especially if you’re switching insurers to get a better deal - is crucial, Tynan says. “There is no use looking to change insurers once a pre-existing health condition has been developed.” A Consumer NZ study of eight insurance providers last year found that the best value for money deal for a couple in their 30s was Unimed’s Hospital Only plan, which costs $66 a month but carries zero excess, research assistant Scott Donaldson says. Policies with excesses are harder to measure because it depends on the number of claims the policyholder makes. Why do we need health insurance? Donaldson says medical insurance is very much “risk, reward”. You can leapfrog the public system and have your medical

problems addressed immediately. But policies are not always straightforward. “As you get older, the premiums skyrocket and if you don’t get [insurance] for a while, you will have pre-existing conditions which then aren’t covered,” Donaldson says. Others opted for “self insurance”, using the public system but regularly putting money aside in case they needed it, requiring extreme discipline. Those most likely to save money are people with “obscure” medical conditions who need specialist treatment. Money-saving tips Shop around - Getting quotes from several insurers will uncover differences of up to thousands of dollars. Compare the policies carefully and choose a policy with high claim limits and as broad a cover as possible. Focus on the big risks

Don’t insure for day-to-day medical expenses such as GP visits and prescriptions. If you want health insurance, protect against the big risks with hospital and surgical cover only. Comprehensive policies that cover everyday costs are unlikely to be worth it. Choose a higher excess It’s natural to shy away from high excesses, but the rule generally is: the bigger the excess, the lower the premium. Take the highest excess you can comfortably afford and make sure you have the money available at short notice. Keep an eye out for discounts Many insurance companies offer lower premium rates for groups, package deals and discounts for paying annually instead of monthly. Some insurers offer discounts of up to 20 per cent for nonsmokers and 10 per cent for those with a healthy lifestyle. - Consumer NZ

Auckland International Airport confirmed its expectation of an underlying profit after tax for the current financial year of between $160 million and $170 million at the annual shareholders’ meeting. The meeting was the last for Joan Withers since joining the board at its NZX listing 16 years ago, three of them spent as chair, to be replaced by Sir Henry van der Heyden, subject to confirmation of the outcome of the shareholder vote. Both Withers and chief executive Adrian Littlewood praised increased government investment in tourism marketing, particularly for growth in passenger numbers from Asia, especially China. “By 2030, roughly 80 per cent of the world’s middle class, or 4 billion, will be on our back doorstep and within one flight of Auckland airport,” said Littlewood. “However, it is a competitive race with high stakes, and every country has their eyes on that prize. “New Zealand needs to recognise that competitive challenge, be more ambitious and work better together as an industry so we can capture the growth.” In time, this would require the construction of a second

The Auckland-based pay-TV operator forecasts net profit of between $145 million and $155m in the 12 months ending June 30, 2014, up from $137.2m in the 2013 financial year, according to presentation slides accompanying chief executive John Fellet’s speech at yesterday’s annual meeting and published on the stock exchange. - APNZ

runway at Auckland and a new domestic terminal, but Littlewood gave no hint of timing for the initiative, while offering some detail on the company’s plans for making the airport a more attractive workplace. “We have been experts in crafting compelling proposals and convincing the chief executives and chief financial officers of our clients as to when they should base their business at the airport. “However, we somewhat overlooked winning the hearts and minds of their employees.” Further investment would be needed to “build a quality work environment that other developer will find hard to match.” The shares fell 1.2 per cent to $3.40 in trading yesterday. - APNZ

The last two defendants in the fraud case against failed lender Rockforte Finance have been sentenced yesterday in the High Court in Gisborne. The Serious Fraud Office said former director Nigel O’Leary was sentenced to four years’ prison after pleading guilty to nine charges including theft by a person in a special relationship, obtaining by deception and false accounting. John Gardner was sentenced to 11 months’ home detention and 200 hours community work after pleading guilty to five charges, including theft by person in special relationship, obtaining by deception and false statement by promoter. - APNZ

Pressure going on New Zealand regional banks, which make up about 15 per cent of the local market dominated by four large Australian lenders, may struggle to increase revenue in the coming year amid competition from their bigger rivals, Fitch Ratings says in a review of regional financial institutions. The nation’s regional lenders benefit from simple business models focused on accepting deposits from households and businesses and lending to fund residential mortgages, business loans and personal loans while avoiding riskier and more complex financial products, Fitch said yesterday. - APNZ

Professor Barry Vercoe, CEO of One Laptop Per Child, pictured in Tauranga yesterday with the XO laptop which he helped design.

The computers, developed by MIT’s Media Lab, were designed to be tough enough for children to use and abuse but powerful enough for them to run a range of interactive educational activities. All of their software was made free and open source to ensure schools were not faced with costly licensing programmes, with a mandatory standard of one machine for each child. The systems promoted constructionist learning - encouraging children to build and create, rather

than simply surfing the net. The programme was highlighted for its expensive failure in Peru, but Professor Vercoe put this down to a critical lack of pre-training for teachers something that would be tackled in the New Zealand roll-out. “We don’t send laptops into a classroom until the teacher is fully qualified with 15 hours of professional development.” In 2008, 5000 machines were distributed free among Pacific Islands, reaching far-flung places in the Solomon Islands and

Papua New Guinea, as well as every child in Niue. Last year, the Australian federal Government invested $12m in the programme, resulting in 50,000 machines for the country. Professor Vercoe hoped New Zealand would follow its lead. “Governments are always very risk averse, and they won’t jump at anything like this until they’re sure it’s going to work,” he said. “In Australia, it took us two years before the Government got it. I’m not sure how long it will take here.” - NZH

Fans hungry for bite at new Apples

Hundreds were expected to line up today to be among the first in New Zealand to buy the new iPhones. At midnight, the iPhone 5s and the 5c models went on sale and one expert predicted big

There’s $$$ on the web Businesses with a website are more likely to increase revenue and hire full-time staff in the year ahead, according to survey findings. MYOB’s latest Business Monitor Report also found the number of Kiwi firms going online is rising, albeit slowly. In its survey of about 1000 Kiwi small and medium enterprises, the accounting software firm found 38 per cent of businesses with a website saw revenue increase in the year to August 2013, compared to only 26 per cent of businesses without. Half of businesses with a website said they expected to see revenue increase in the year ahead, compared to 37 per cent of those without. - NZH

HP into 3D printers




In brief

$100 laptop makes local debut A cause credited for putting educational computers in the hands of millions of children across the world will come full-circle for one of its Kiwiborn founders today, when he launches the One Laptop Per Child programme here. It’s now hoped the programme will reach schools across the country and ultimately win government backing. The scheme began eight years ago when Professor Barry Vercoe and colleagues at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) developed a computer dubbed the “$100 laptop”. Professor Vercoe, who remains a Professor Emeritus of Media Arts and Sciences of the famous Boston institute, had helped bring the specially-designed XO computers to some of the most remote places on Earth before he moved back to New Zealand. “I’ve been involved in taking these things into lots of countries and I thought, why not home?” he said yesterday. One school, Te Wharekura o Manaia in Coromandel, has so far taken up the technology, issuing 67 machines to its junior pupils.

sales even though they aren’t vastly different from their predecessor, the iPhone 5. Apple also unveiled its newgeneration iPads yesterday, an event met with a lot of hype in technology circles. Both of New Zealand’s biggest telecommunications com-

panies, Vodafone and Telecom, were holding day-long events today in the lead-up to the launch of the new phones at 12.01am, including special guests and a onesie pyjama party. The first 18 buyers to register at Vodafone’s Viaduct Harbour offices got their own “VIP

tent”, complete with butler service, refreshments, a survival kit and priority service. And to avoid queue fatigue, entertainment was provided by a range of sports and media personalities, as well as live performances from Titanium - NZH and DJ Thieves.

At the Canalys Channels Forum in Bangkok, HP’s CEO Meg Whitman announced that HP will enter the 3D printer market by mid 2014. This news could be bigger than huge and might finally see 3D printing moving away from being the exclusive domain of high geekery and industrial design into the mainstream. The move also makes considerable sense for HP, and this was echoed by Whitman who said “We are excited about 3D printing.” It appears that the big issues that HP’s labs are looking to get to grips with 3D printing are speed (printing complex objects can take hours) and price (at the moment 3D printer hardware costs a bomb). - NZH

Piracy growing issue A study commissioned by US TV network NBC Universal, found that piracy is on the rise. This news mightn’t exactly be rocket science, but get this - the study estimates that in January 432 million people accessed copyright infringing material and in the process of doing so consumed a rather substantial 9,567 petabytes of data. The report attributes nearly a quarter of all Internet traffic to piracy. There’s no shortage of studies bemoaning the rise of piracy, and it seems that each report manages to come up with even more truly sensational and headline grabbing numbers than its predecessor. The NBC report concluded by stating that even though there’s been several shedloads of anti-piracy policies formulated and put into action, piracy is hard to stop. - NZH

Tony Brown ‘home’

Big match for ex-pats BY JONATHAN LEASK


Mid Canterbury rugby products Tim Perry and Gary Redmond play in one of the biggest games of their careers tonight as the Tasman Makos take on Hawke’s Bay in the ITM Cup championship final at Trafalgar Park. Perry made his Super Rugby debut earlier this season with the Blues and got to pack down against the All Black-laden Crusaders front row, but this provincial final with promotion to the premiership at stake is pretty big. It will be Perry’s first national

provincial final, after what was his first semi-final win in which they dispatched Southland 49-28 last week in Blenheim. Perry’s first semi-final in the national competition was for Mid Canterbury in 2010, a loss to North Otago, and last year Tasman went down to Otago in the championship semifinals. Makos captain Shane Christie is back to full fitness for the final after being forced out of last Saturday’s semi-final against Southland with concussion. Christie’s return bumps Mid Canterbury product Gary Redmond, Perry’s Harlequins club-mate

and flatmate, out of the number 7 jersey to the blindside flank. Redmond was on the bench in the semi-final last year but in Christie’s absence he took his chance with a strong showing against Southland to earn a starting spot in the final against Hawkes Bay. The last time the sides met on September 22, Tasman held off Hawkes Bay to win 18-9 at Nelson’s Trafalgar Park. Following the final Perry has some decision making to do with the Super rugby squad deadline fast approaching.

All Blacks a boost for Canterbury’s chances Backs Tom Taylor and Colin Slade return to bolster Canterbury for their ITM Cup final in Wellington on Saturday night. Taylor returns from All Blacks duty to start at fullback, with first-five Slade returning

to the reserves bench from a knee injury suffered in Canterbury’s regular season defeat to Wellington. The forward pack remains unchanged to that which laid the foundation for Canterbury’s

semi-final victory over Auckland last weekend. Canterbury will need all the reinforcements they can get to beat Wellington and win their sixth title in a row. Wellington comfortably beat Counties-Manukau in their semi.

In Canterbury’s favour is a strong bench including Slade, new All Blacks lock Dominic Bird, prop Paea Fa’anunu and halfback Willi Heinz. Replacement loosie Jordan Taufua has also been impressive. - APNZ

In his heart this is where Tony Brown wants to be. Brown was officially named as a Highlanders assistant coach yesterday, and will join as the side’s attack coach. Brown has just finished his second year as Otago coach, and will continue on in that role next year, as well as his new position. Brown, 38, said in the end it was not a hard choice in accepting the role with the Highlanders. “It was an easy decision. This is where my heart is. With the Highlanders and Otago. I want to help and I think I can,” Brown said. - APNZ

1st XI on a roll The Ashburton College boys’ 1st XI will look to build on a strong start to the Canterbury Schools 1st XI two day cricket competition when they travel to meet Christchurch Boys’ High 3rd XI tomorrow. College got the second half of their season of to a good start with a win over Southwest in Ashburton last Saturday. After the first day was washed out, both teams decided to forfeit the first innings in search of an outright result. College’s attack bowled Southwest for 85, led by Jack Meyrick, who bowled 18 overs for 3/21. In reply the Ashburton College boys got off to a great start through Tom Dudley (17) and Jordy Scott-Wells (27). Kirk Chettleburgh hit three sixes off the last three balls to give College a win by 8 wickets.

Third straight loss A three-game losing streak should leave Breakers’ fans sullen but some will have a spring in their step after what they saw last night. The defending champions dropped to 1-3 on the new season, losing three straight for the first time since after being edged 96-89 by old rivals Perth on the North Shore. The Breakers came into the contest without a home loss in more than 12 months but, throughout that year, they had never encountered a player like James Ennis. The NBA draft pick lived up to his billing and enhanced his impressive scoring average. - APNZ

Whetton a Brumbie The Brumbies have added three players to their roster for the 2014 Super Rugby season, with Lionel Cronje, Conrad Hoffmann and Jack Whetton, all moving to Australia’s capital in the coming weeks. SAt 2m tall, second-rower Whetton, 21, becomes the Brumbies’ third line-out jumper to break the 1.99m barrier. Whetton’s father Gary represented the All Blacks on more than 50 occasions. Jack Whetton has spent two seasons in New Zealand’s ITM Cup, first with Northland and then Auckland. - AAP

Ferns thump Malawi Job done then. It was never expected to be close and it certainly wasn’t as the Silver Ferns eased past Malawi in the first test in Wellington last with a 70-32 win. The Ferns, who were smarting from their recent 4-1 Constellation Cup drubbing at the hands of Australia, wanted to come to the TSB Bank Arena and make a statement against the world No 5. They didn’t do it in spectacular fashion but they steadily improved throughout the contest as they eventually cruised past the Queens. - APNZ

Haque ton saves Bangas Mominul Haque reached his second test ton with a firm punch over the bowler’s head which eluded both mid-off and mid-on last night, an impressive innings in a promising start to his Test career. The Bangladeshis were 212 for two in their second innings as drinks were taken, leading by 57 after the Black Caps had scored 437 in their first innings. Bangladesh has eight wickets in hand, late on day four of the second test. The first test ended in a draw.

KO video goes viral After an unprecedented amateur career, Lydia Ko marked her move to the professional ranks in appropriately unique fashion. The video of Israel Dagg pestering the 16-year-old about her professional status while playing a round at Gulf Harbour was a project shrouded in secrecy and has now made headlines right around the world. There was a certain serendipity to how the video came together, with Dagg and Ko set to feature this summer in New Zealand Golf’s new ‘Love Golf’ campaign and booked to film at Gulf Harbour on Monday. - APNZ

The final hurdle

The only thing standing between Mid Canterbury and the Meads Cup is the only team to have beaten them in the Heartland Rugby Championship. North Otago come up the road to Ashburton for the Meads Cup final tomorrow with seven wins in a row behind them, including the psychological advantage of a 19-18 win over Mid Canterbury on September 14. “It doesn’t really matter too much what happened then because we have progressed so much since then it’s not worth looking back,” coach Glenn Moore said. Both sides have changed and improved so much since that Saturday in September, however, the match does provide some insight into what they can expect from the Old Golds. A fierce battle upfront.

Luckily they had a good hit out against the West Coast in a semi-final win best described as a great escape last week, and Moore hopes they can get the job done again, albeit slightly earlier. “We have to start well and be accurate with the things that we do. “When we create an opportunity we have to put it away. “It had been something we had been able to do in the weeks previous to the semi-final, but I don’t know if we had a lapse in concentration or what but we can’t afford to be doing that this week.” Last time around the key moment came early when North Otago scooped up a dropped pass and ran 80m for a try, the rest they left up to the boot of Ed Keohane. Mid Canterbury was without regular first-five and goal

kicker Murray Williams on that occasion - and goal-kicking also proved costly with Josh Nonu thrown in the deep-end. “Josh hadn’t kicked much all year and was thrown the job because of injuries to other potential kickers. “Murray will be there and it’s great to have a guy who can slot them from anywhere, but we know they have a handy kicker too.” Keohane was also a key factor in North Otago’s semi-final win over Wairarapa Bush. They led 31-12 at halftime and it finished up six tries apiece, but Keohane landed all six conversions and two penalty goals. After Mid Canterbury’s bruising encounter with the Coasters there were a few niggles floating around, but Moore expected to run out the same starting XV for the final, hop-

ing to exact revenge on North Otago in the one that matters. The other thing Moore was expecting was a bumper turnout from the local faithful ready to cheer their team on at home, the best place to be for a final. “It’s always good to be at home.” Mid Canterbury has lost both their two previous Meads Cup finals away from the Showgrounds, losing to Wanganui in Wanganui in 2008 and then to Wanganui in Christchurch, however, historically they have won both finals at the Showgrounds in 1994 and 1998 in the old third division. North Otago knows a thing or two about home ground advantage. They will also play in their third Meads Cup final and have a 100 per cent record, beating Wanganui in 2007 and 2010 both times in Oamaru.

England test ‘must win’ for All Blacks BY WYNNE GRAY Aaron Cruden’s crosskick to instigate a try, Israel Dagg’s timing from fullback, Ma’a Nonu’s scattering charges - all wonderful parts of the All Blacks’ attacking collection. Those skills have become familiar to observers as the team continues to attack and search

for space. Rugby’s basics remain the same although grounds have improved as markedly as players’ fitness, skills and philosophy. We thrill to the sort of rugby the All Blacks and Springboks produced at Ellis Park as they attacked throughout the setpiece, breakdowns and open field confrontations.

Those who wondered about the tight five and their ability to withstand repeated bouts of ferocity got an answer in Johannesburg as the All Blacks absorbed the Bok inquisition and then slammed the door on their hosts’ fingers. For all the marketing and development ideas about the upcoming tour to Japan and

Europe, the main event will be the test against England on November 16. Defeat against France or a historic loss to Ireland would be painful but nothing like such a result at Twickenham. All eyes in November will be on the old cabbage patch where the All Blacks rotted last year. - NZH

Tennis juniors out in force By Jonathan Leask

The Ashburton Trust Junior Tennis Open has 153 players from across the South Island converging on the Ashburton Trust Tennis Centre this weekend. Players from Invercargill, Nelson and everywhere in between have signed up to make it the biggest tournament since tournament organiser Chris Anderson has been with Mid Canterbury tennis. To alleviate over-crowded draws in some age-groups, par-

ticularly the boys’ 10s and 12s, Anderson introduced 11s and 8/9s, but the boys’ 12s and 14s singles have still drawn the biggest number of entries with 27 in each draw. In the 12s the top-seeded local is Sam Bubb the seventh seed, with West Melton’s Jeroen Breunisse the number one, while in the 14s James Watt is seeded eighth and Christchurch’s Dylan Heap is the top seed. Edwin Dargue heads the 11 boys’ entries and in the 8/9 boys’ singles Tyler Leonard

is seed number two and Harry Dargue at three, with the pair to join forces in the doubles. In the 16 girls Ashleigh Leonard, who made a winning debut in the Christchurch premier women’s competition last week, is seeded number two behind Oamaru’s Rebecca Dellaway. Tessa McCann is seeded fifth in the 12 girls with Sophie Ness the sixth seed. “It’s absolutely huge and the fingers are crossed for fine weather and not too much wind,” Anderson said.

Equestrienne in a hurry Ashburton’s Susie Hayward is in for a busy weekend of show jumping. Hayward and Andretti have made the mad dash north to compete in the opening round of the Bayer World Cup New Zealand Series at the Hawke’s Bay A and show in Hastings today and are down to compete at Showjumping Canterbury’s Labour Weekend One-Star Jumping Carnival. After competing at the first of seven rounds in the New Zealand World Cup qualifiers, Hayward will travel back south to line up against a stiff line-up in Monday’s One Star Horse Grand Prix in Christchurch. The Pony Grand Prix promises some real action with a strong field of 15 of the South Island’s leading pony riders looking for vital points.

Final berths for T20 comp still wide open By Jonathan Leask

Mid Canterbury senior cricket’s Twenty20 competition heats up tomorrow, with four teams in the race for the final. The top two teams after tomorrow will square off a week later in the final, a match that

Ashburton Guardian 19

has so far always featured the Tech Sharks, and been won by them all five times. This year they are in danger of missing out. Allenton is unbeaten from their three completed matches in the competition thus far, with their match against the Sharks rained off in week one, to be on

top of the table on 10 points. Coldstream won both off their match-ups last week to be on seven points while the five-time defending champion Sharks and the Tech Stags are both on four points. In round five Allenton clash with Coldstream before they both have the bye in the final

round, so the winner of that game will be assured a berth in the final. The Sharks have the winless Methven and the Stags meet Lauriston before the Tech sides swap opponents for the final round, with both Tech sides chasing the two wins for a shot at the final.


Classy line-up on show Next weekend the National Equestrian Centre at McLeans Island hosts the ESNZ Eventing National Event Championships. While the event lacks some of the country’s biggest names it still promises some top class action. A small North Island contingent is confirmed to make the trip south. In total, more than 130 riders from throughout New Zealand will compete across two days of action. Dressage and show jumping will take place on Saturday (November 2) with the cross country on Sunday (November 3). In the CIC2* will be tough with a small but quality field of 10 entered, including Ashburton’s Madison Crowe on Brogan and Larissa Srhoy (Loburn) on Smirnoff. It is the first time the National One Day Event Championships have been held in the South Island, since it was hosted by the Ashburton Area at Surrey Hills in the mid-1990s.

Juniors crash out The Junior All Whites have ended their under-17 World Cup campaign with a third defeat after going down to Ivory Coast 3-0 in Abu Dhabi. Moussa Bakayoko scored a double for Ivory Coast, with a goal in each half, while Meite Yakou netted his team’s third three minutes before fulltime. New Zealand went down to 10 men in just the 34th minute when Nick Forrester received his second yellow card of the match. The Ivory Coast dominated most of the match, enjoying more than 70 percent possession with 32 attempts at goal. In comparison New Zealand just had two shots at goal. The defeat means New Zealand finishes bottom of group B following losses to Uruguay and Italy. - HOL

Dream job for Hicks

Top ride scores a chocolate fish Jamie Smitheram is followed down the track by Bailey Kershaw in the first race of the summer series Mid Canterbury Mountain Bike Club’s chocolate fish race on Tuesday night.

The up and coming 16-yearold Smitheram took out the race in 24.06.21 as his power riding was too strong for Dell Phillips who came home a close second with another newcomer

to the sport, Brian Goodes, finished third. Heavy rain in the lead up to the race meant the normal track was out of use, forcing race organisers to change to an out

and back course. With 20 riders starting the race, the club is looking forward to the next race on Tuesday and welcomes new riders to turn up and ride the track at their leisure.

Jason Hicks was yesterday coming to terms with the fact that he was no longer a plumber and would be plying his trade as a professional footballer for the next two years at least. The 23-year-old midfielder, who was born in the English county of Kent and came through the ranks in New Zealand with East Coast Bays, Waikato and Auckland City, has landed a two-year contract with the Wellington Phoenix. “It has all happened very quickly; one minute I was working as a plumber and a week later I am a pro footballer,” Hicks said. - APNZ

YOUR STARS by Forecasters

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20) Attitude is everything, with the Sun and Neptune not only working together, but in a way that is going to inspire your imagination and your perception. TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21) In the Sun’s early days in your relationship sector the Moon is stirring things up, with a chance to clear the air and give emotional responses a voice. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 22) You’ve got a mix of hindsight and foresight to draw on, with the doors open to both new opportunities and second chances on the work front. CANCER (JUNE 22 – JULY 24) There is a real need to slow down, smell the coffee, gain an appreciation for the small things in life and the power that staying in the moment gives you. LEO (JULY 24 – AUG 23) There is an increasing need for time out and for those quiet moments where you can shut out all the outside noise and hear yourself think. VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 23) Work to give the past and unsaid words a voice, while avoiding a lot of the misunderstandings and mixed messages that often go with this. LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 23) With the doors about to open to second chances on the income, work and career fronts at the same time, dare to believe that anything is possible. SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) You could never keep up the pace of recent months, with the key now to staying on track being to find the right balance between work and play. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) The Sun and Neptune are working in cahoots, working to make your home a place of refuge and sanctuary, where you can hear yourself think. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) A few moments taken to ensure you’re on the same page as others and there are no misunderstandings will save backtracking later down the track. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) The Moon’s return to your work sector will trigger some lucky hunches, but also a better sense of whether and when to hold back or push forward. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) There is a triad of forces in play today that will be making it extremely hard to keep your professional hat on, which is why you shouldn’t try.

Murray Williams has been a big influence in Mid Canterbury’s run to the Meads Cup final. The experienced first-five is relishing his season with the Hammers, and is looking to end it in the perfect fashion. “It’s been awesome. “I think I got a little stale playing club footy in Auckland and it’s been refreshing to come down here,” Williams said. “I’m just really enjoying my footy and want to do all I can for the team to win it.” Since he joined Mid Canterbury, they have won every Heartland rugby championship game that he has taken the field.

The only time Williams didn’t play this season, Mid Canterbury narrowly lost to their Meads Cup final opponents North Otago 18-19 in Oamaru. The North Otago loss had the Hammers launch a last gasp assault only to be pushed out in the corner looking for a matchwinning try. In last week’s semi-final against West Coast, Mid Canterbury was able to conjure up the last play try to snatch the win. “I felt all day if we held onto the ball we always had the chance of scoring, but I just knew it was important to get the kick-off straight away or they would have picked-and-go and held onto it until the end,” Williams said.

“I find the kick-offs down the middle quite hard to pull off so it’s nice it came off for us. “I knew if we could get the ball and hold on for a few phases we could create an opportunity.” They did just that, and fellow import player Willie McGoon raced up the sideline to score the match-winner. Helping to win games is the big expectation hanging over the imports, even someone who played for Japan at the Rugby World Cup. “The hardest thing is having that expectation. “Coming into the area and taking someone else’s spot, you’ve got a lot of expectation to perform, do well for the team

and have some influence over the result.” Williams is based in Auckland where he was playing for Ponsonby after returning from a stint in Japan, and it was through his relationship with incoming assistant coach Grant Keenan that Mid Canterbury secured his services. “He coached me when I was a young kid at Ponsonby, and I caught up again with him when he coached me for a couple of years in Japan. “I had a couple of ITM Cup opportunities and I was trying to suss that out with work, but they couldn’t give me the three or four months off I needed. “I was quite keen to keep play-

ing rugby and I spoke to Grant about it and he asked if I was keen to play for Mid Canterbury. “I went back to work and said I know I asked for a few months off, but can I just have Fridays, and they said it was all good.” Williams has had to squeeze his work week to four days and commute from Auckland to don the green and gold strip, flying down each week to make Thursday night training. He did that for the final time this season last night as the team prepares for the biggest game of the season, one where Williams will hope to keep his unbeaten streak in the green-and-gold alive.
