Tills ringing, farmers singing BY MICHELLE NELSON MICHELLE.N@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ
Inclement weather over the Christmas break may not have brought seasonal joy to campers and holiday makers – but retailers and farmers are singing in the rain. Parking was at a premium outside Ashburton’s retail outlets during yesterday’s Boxing Day sales. Inside bargain hunters jos-
tled for space. “It’s perfect retail weather,” Smith and Church Retravision director Alister Lilley said. “You’ve got to be open on Boxing Day – it’s the biggest day of the year for retailers, and this one’s been fantastic, we’re fully staffed and the store is humming.” Yesterday’s sale wound up a good trading month for the locally-owned business. “As long as the rural economy
is strong, the Ashburton economy is strong,” Mr Lilley said. Across the road Harvey Norman was also doing a roaring trade. A spokesperson at the store said staff had been “flat out” since the doors opened at 8.30am, and there had been no let-up. No one from The Warehouse was available for comment yesterday, however while rain poured down outside, shoppers
poured into the aisles – many were children with Christmas money to spend. Farmers also revelled in the rain. Last week Mid Canterbury Federated Farmers grain and seed spokesperson David Clark asked Santa for a reprieve from shifting irrigators on Christmas Day – and his wish came true! Mr Clark said the rain had come at the right time for both cropping and livestock farmers, especially those with irrigators
still out of action after the September gales. Meanwhile, people planning to see in the New Year in Mid Canterbury can expect more rain. MetService has forecast more wet weather – with heavy showers at times, across the district. By New Year’s Day the front should start to pull away, but intermittent showers will prevail through to the first weekend of 2014.

Five things that may interest you
Cab driver ﬁnds $300K in back seat
Las Vegas cab driver Gerardo Gamboa (below) thought someone left a bag of chocolates in the back seat of his vehicle, but the stash turned out to be $300,000 in cold hard cash. Now, Gamboa is winning honours for honesty after turning in the money he found. The money was returned to an unidentified poker player. Yellow Checker Star Transportation named Gamboa its driver of the year and rewarded him with $1000 and a dinner for two at a restaurant. Gamboa said he had another passenger by the time he began wondering what was in the brown paper bag. He peeked inside at a traffic light. “I told my passenger, ‘You are my witness on this’,” the 13-year taxi driver said, “and then I immediately called my dispatcher.” Gamboa took the six bundles of $100 bills to the company’s main office, where Las Vegas police and casino officials linked it to the poker player.
Man’s 10,607 video games secure title Maybe it was getting his first video game, Cosmic Avenger, for Christmas at age 12, and then having to wait an entire year for the hard-to-land Colecovision console to play it on that made Michael Thomasson so determined to get his hands on every video game and system he could find. Now, 31 years and roughly 11,000 games later, Thomasson is the newly crowned world record holder for having the largest collection of video games. He is featured in a twopage spread in the just-released Guinness World Records 2014 Gamer’s Edition. “I have games on cartridge, laser disc. I have VHS-based games, cassette-based games,” Thomasson said, standing among the collection that fills the basement of his suburban Buffalo home. Along with the games, he has the devices to play them on, not only the Xboxes and PlayStations but obscure ones like the Casio Loopy, the only game system specifically geared toward girls, which came out in Japan in 1995, and the Pippin, a dud released by Apple the same year. “Every game on it is awful,” Thomasson says of Apple’s foray into the gaming world. “It’s the least fun of anything in the house.”

Beiber announces his retirement Justin Beiber has used Twitter to announce his retirement. In a tweet that caused a Christmas Day social media frenzy, the 19-year-old superstar said: “My beloved beliebers I’m officially retiring.” But he later tweeted that he would never leave his fans and that he was “here forever”. The original tweet was retweeted almost 200,000 time in three hours, according to Twitter. This is not the first time the celebrity has hinted that he plans to retire. He told a Los Angeles radio station on December 19 that he intended to take a break from his music career.
Beach body tip - just fake it Candice Swanepoel thinks the “real secret” to looking confident on the beach is to “just fake it”. The Victoria’s Secret model may have an enviably toned figure and gorgeous looks, but she insists body confidence is all about mind over matter. Swanepoel recently gave some advice on how to feel self-assured in a swimsuit. “It’s important to work out because you always feel better when you do,” she told teenvogue. com. “Get a good cover-up - Victoria’s Secret has beautiful cover-ups that are good to have if you’re feeling a little self-conscious. “But even if you don’t feel that confident, the real secret is just fake it!” Swanepoel starts her summer fitness preparation early in order to look her best in skimpy beachwear. The 25-year-old says she gets “bored” doing the same exercises, so she tries out different routines. The South African model also revealed her summer beauty mantra is “less is more”. She added: “Wear a little bronzer, and have something to tie your hair back with.”

Christmas display prompts emergency response A metro Atlanta homeowner says he hopes he didn’t offend anyone by his Christmas decoration of a mannequin with outstretched arms entangled in a string of Christmas lights and clinging to a ledge that prompted an emergency response to his house. Bubba Murphy Lake said that someone passing the house in Berkeley Lake with their children thought the display looked so realistic that they called 911. He says fire officials told him to take the display down - at least temporarily. The display also had a ladder toppled over in the front yard. Murphy says homeowners in his Cobb County neighbourhood go all out with their Christmas displays every year.

■ ST STEPHEN’S STILL IN LIMBO
Church only up to 20% of code By Toni Williams
The future of St Stephen’s Church still hangs in limbo after the latest report shows it only meets 20 per cent of the building code.
Earlier this year, the church closed its doors when a preliminary report showed the building complied at less than 33 per cent of the building code. The decision to close the church doors was made by the church vestry for parishioners’
safety. Reverend Joan Clark said the preliminary report showed the church was at 20 per cent. They were still waiting for a quantity surveyor’s report to indicate costs. However, the preliminary report was now in the hands of
the wardens and would be discussed in the New Year. “It seems quite fair, not extreme,” she said, of its findings. St Stephen’s Church opened in 1963 and replaced the original church built 85 years earlier. It was built to 20 per cent
earthquake strength, which was the requirement at the time. It was made of reinforced brick but has high gables. Ms Clark said they would review the situation in the New Year and meet with church property trustees.

Only the hardy punters turn out in damp conditions Wet weather and a slushy track did little to attract the crowd to the Boxing Day harness meeting in Ashburton yester-
day. Conditions for the punters cleared in time for the $22,000 Ashburton Cup, the main race of the day, but conditions were
difficult for horses and drivers, with the track cut up by preceding races held in steady drizzle by the time the race got under
way at 5.15pm. The race was won by Arden Rooney, driven by Mark Purdon, followed across the line by local drivers John
Hay with Jimmy Johnstone, and Ricky May with Jason Rulz. More racing and results P17.
■ BOXING DAY SURPRISE PROPOSAL
Shopper gets much more than she bargained for By lydia anderson She went for the bargains - but got much more than she bargained for. A young shopper at St Luke’s Mall in Auckland for the Boxing Day sales got an unexpected present when her boyfriend knelt down and proposed in
front of hundreds of people. Witnesses crowded around and leant over balconies to catch a glimpse of the impromptu proposal in front of Pascoes jewellers. Esquires cafe staff had a good view of the couple’s happy moment. “He started shouting ‘Merry
Christmas everybody, I’m going to propose to my girlfriend today’,” said worker Tim Jo. The girl blushed as her boyfriend told her he loved her, said Mr Jo. She stood there for about 20 seconds with her hands covering her mouth, filled with emotion, then gave her boyfriend
her hand. As for the all-important answer, did she say yes? “She kind of had to,” said fellow Esquires worker Ryan Hobbs. “They had a mean-as kiss.” “I was saying it was R18,” Mr Jo added. As the couple kissed, the crowd cheered, clapping con-
stantly. A spectator shook the hand of the groom-to-be and the couple continued on their way. A Pascoes store member said it was so busy inside and around the store they could not see the incident happening just metres away, but could hear people cheering. - APNZ

NEWSMAKERS OF 2013 As 2013 comes to an end and 2014 gets under way, the Guardian is taking a look back at the year that’s been and catching up with some of Mid Canterbury’s newsmakers. Today Guardian reporter Michelle Nelson catches up with Christine Lawn.
Free as a bird C
hristine Lawn soared into national headlines this year; when she became the country’s first paraplegic solo skydiver. The Ashburton woman – and self-confessed adrenalin junkie – made history on March 22, in the skies above Pudding Hill, with New Zealand Skydiving School instructors Gary Beyer and Laszlo Csizmadia in close proximity. A promising jockey with 19 wins in the bag, Christine lost
the use of her legs after a fall at a race meet in 2002. She has since written a book, made the New Zealand Paralympics dressage training squad, and raised her son Cody on the journey. The decision to take to the skies was the latest adventure, and after completing just four tandem jumps, Christine went solo. “I couldn’t give a stuff about the record, I just wanted to make sure I landed,” she said
at the time. “You have freedom in the sky – there’s no wheelchair up there.” However, she had her wings clipped when she broke her leg in a landing a few weeks later, an event she takes full responsibility for. The spiral fracture has taken months to heal, complicated by her condition, but Christine is confident she will be up in the ether again some time in the New Year. “I had an operation in Octo-
ber and they put a rod through it,” she said. While she’s fed up with being sidelined with injury, Christine has put the time to good use, with the help of others, working on modifications to protect her legs. “We’ve rigged up a system for me when I go back jumping to hold my legs out of the way more. A rigger down in Queenstown did it for free, he made up a system that will help me pull my legs up.
“And an occupational therapist managed to get a physio friend to find her a couple of ROM (range of motion) braces that hold my legs in a certain position so I can keep going with my AFF (accelerated freefall course) and hover properly on my own.” At the time Christine spoke to the Guardian, she was due to see her specialist, and was hoping for good news. “I definitely plan to jump again,” she said.

Charges against Greenpeace activists dropped BY PATRICE DOUGAN Charges against 29 Greenpeace activists, including two New Zealanders, who faced prison in Russia have been dropped following a Kremlin amnesty. A Greenpeace spokesman in St Petersburg said the case against the remaining activist, Italian Cristian D’Alessandro, was also expected to be dropped. The ‘Arctic 30’ were arrested three months ago over a protest against oil and gas drilling in the Arctic. They faced seven years in jail under hooliganism charges. The environmental group said it had been asked to attend a meeting at Russia’s investigative committee, where the
criminal case against 29 of them were “dropped en masse”. However, the group of 28 activists and two freelance journalists have one more hurdle to jump before they can leave the country - securing exit visas. “Because they never thought they would come into Russia they didn’t have Russian visas, so they need some paperwork to enable them to leave the country,” a Greenpeace NZ spokesman said. “Our lawyers tell us it should be sorted out within the next few days. We’re not anticipating any problems with that.” The two Kiwis in the group - David Haussmann and Jon Beauchamp - are “very keen to get home”, the spokesman said.
“Overall it’s kind of a mixture of relief and an urgency to get home and spend time with their loved ones.” In a statement, Arctic Sunrise skipper Peter Willcox said: “This is the day we’ve been waiting for since our ship was boarded by armed commandos more than three months ago. “I’m pleased and relieved the charges have been dropped, but we should not have been charged at all.” The Arctic 30 have been living in a St Petersburg hotel since being bailed nearly five weeks ago. They were freed under a new amnesty rule, which also saw two jailed members of punk band Pussy Riot walk free earlier this week. - APNZ

■ ASHBURTON’S BLACK BILLED GULLS
Ashburton Guardian 5
Almost ready to fly the nest
Man shot in stomach A man is in a serious condition in hospital after being shot in the stomach in the early hours of yesterday. The man, aged in his 20s, is believed to have been shot by a .22 rifle, at a house in Motueka around 4am. The Armed Offenders Squad were called to the home in Pah St, after reports of a man being shot. He was taken to Nelson Hospital in a serious condition. Two people at the address are currently being interviewed by police. - APNZ
Coach’s body found
Fledgling black billed gulls are almost ready to fly the nest on the Ashburton River bed near State Highway 1. After much flying and fluffing about the critically endangered gulls finally decided to settle and nest on the river for the summer. They return each year to nest at the location, but have to battle a wide range of hazards including floods, predators and
human interference. In September the gulls arrived back from their winter foraging locations, and invaded west Ashburton, sitting on shop roof tops and decorating footpaths with white splotches. Some even took up residence in the Ashburton Domain, making friends with the ducks, before moving to the river for nesting.

Wairarapa’s soccer fraternity is in shock after the body of a star player and coach was found wedged in rocks at Castlepoint yesterday. Searchers retrieved the body of Miroslav Tvaroh, 34, of Greytown, from Castle Rock a rocky outcrop on the Riversdale Beach side of The Gap at 7.45am after it was spotted by an Amalgamated Helicopters crew, on low tide. An inflatable craft belonging to Riversdale Surf Lifesaving Club was brought in to help with the recovery of the body but could not retrieve it because of the swell. Special equipment aboard the helicopter was eventually used to lift the body from the rocks and bring it out. - APNZ

f you’re not up for a two-day trek or a strenuous one-dayer in and out to either Woolshed Creek or Pinnacles huts, the Mt Somers track area still has plenty to offer over the summer. At either end of the track there are short walks, which provide a wonderful bush experience that can be managed by just about anyone of any age. Walking into Sharplin Falls and back will take you less than one hour, but don’t hurry. There are too many beautiful spots in which to stop and dangle your feet in chilly mountain water pools, too many places to simply stop and enjoy being deep in beautiful beech forest. Access to the falls track is via a swing bridge. There are plenty of picnic spots in the shade around the car park. Warning: Take insect repellent. After the earthquake in September 2010, the Sharplin Falls Track was closed while repairs were carried out. A large boulder had been shaken loose and fallen through the bush, over the pathway, and careered on down the hill, leaving battered trees in its wake. The track reopened in January 2011, with a reminder that it was always prone to rock fall, even before the

Residents of a Mt Somers cattery unwrapped Christmas presents and ate roast chicken for lunch on Wednesday. That’s because it was Christmas Day, a day that cattery owner Andrea Thompson likes to make special for her feline charges. “They are my family, they have come to stay with me for Christmas, so we give them pressies,” she said. Opening presents and feeding the cats roast dinner was an annual tradition she enjoyed with her grandchildren and husband Allan, who is home for Christmas as he recovers from an illness in Burwood Spinal Unit. Her A Whare Iti Boarding Cattery is among Mid Canterbury catteries which have all been booked out for the Christmas-New Year period. At Ashburton Boarding Kennels and
Cattery there are about 75 dogs and 35 cats filling up units. Owner Rowena Stanton said most bookings had come in by the end of October. She was busy in the lead up to Christmas Day with many people leaving their cats and dogs. She said many of the animals were regulars, and the dogs often knew exactly where their kennel was. “The dogs will quite often take me because they know where they are going,” Ms Stanton said. “They are good as gold, some of the owners get a bit emotional, I always tell them that the dogs will enjoy it more than they do.” Tamzin Mann at Comfy Cats has 15 cats staying with her over the Christmas-New Year break. She said her family, including two daughters aged six and nine, enjoyed having the feline companions to feed and care for.

Christmas been, gone Michelle Nelson REPORTER
hristmas has passed more or less without incident for most of us in Mid Canterbury. Even the weather held off long enough for children to enjoy the outdoor toys delivered by Santa, family and friends on Wednesday morning, despite the southerly rolling in during the afternoon. While most of the community enjoyed a day with family and loved ones, there were plenty of people who worked through the festivities. Emergency service workers, doctors, nurses, police, farmers, milk tanker drivers – even the skeleton crew at your local daily newspaper were among the many on deck on Wednesday, and again yesterday. Special thanks should go to the 65 volunteers who gave up their Christmas Day celebrations to put on the community lunch for 150 guests at the Sinclair Centre – it was a fantastic effort and well received by all who attended. Ashburton police reported a quiet day, with no major incidents recorded in the book, and local volunteer fire services also appear to have got through with few problems. There were no serious crashes – and more importantly no fatalities on Mid Canterbury roads. Yesterday’s rain also had a silver lining; with traditional outdoor activities off the agenda, shoppers flocked into Ashburton’s CBD to take advantage of the Boxing Day sales. It was almost impossible to get a car park. Boxing Day sales have become an institution in recent years and retailers were well prepared with a full contingent of staff on board to deal with the queues of people snapping up bargains. The way the year rolls by some shoppers may even have been preparing for the next silly season – because it will here again before we know it.

Spate of attacks kill 44 Attacks, including bombs that exploded in a market near a church in Baghdad, have killed at least 44 people across Iraq in a day, officials say. The bloodletting comes as Iraq suffers its worst violence since 2008, when it was just emerging from a brutal period of sectarian killings. “Two roadside bombs exploded in a popular market in Dura, killing 35 people and wounding 56,” interior ministry spokesman Saad Maan told AFP, referring to a religiously mixed south Baghdad area. Militants frequently attack places where crowds gather, including markets, cafes and mosques, in an effort to cause maximum casualties. Security officials had initially said that a car bomb targeted the St John church in Baghdad in addition to the market blasts, but Maan, along with a priest from the area and the Chaldean patriarch, all later denied this. “The attack was against a

... market and not a church,” Maan said, while adding that “the targeted area is a mix of Muslims and Christians.” Other attacks left nine more people dead. North of Baghdad, a bomb exploded under the bleachers at a football pitch, killing four
people, among them two police, and wounding 11. Another bombing in south Baghdad killed at least one person and wounded at least three, while gunmen killed three police near Tikrit, north of Baghdad, and bombs on the road between Kirkuk and Tuz Khur-
matu, also north of the capital, killed one person and wounded seven. Experts say widespread discontent among Iraq’s minority Sunni Arab community is a major factor fuelling the surge in unrest this year. But although the government has made some concessions aimed at placating Sunni Arabs, including freeing prisoners and raising the salaries of Sunni anti-al Qaeda fighters, underlying issues remain unaddressed. The bloody civil war in Syria has also played a role in the intensifying violence, with the al Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant carrying out attacks on both sides of the border. Iraqi security forces have launched an operation against militants dubbed “Avenge the Leader Mohammed,” named for a divisional commander who was killed during a raid targeting militants. - AFP
$1.5m drug stash A 47-year-old woman has been charged over a drug stash, estimated to be valued at more than $1.5 million. Police raided a home in Morley in suburban Perth this week, uncovering about three kilograms of drugs believed to be methylamphetamine. They also found more than $17,000 in cash. A Morley woman, 47, was charged with possession a prohibited drug with intent to sell/supply. She appeared in Perth Magistrates Court on Tuesday and will reappear on January 7. - AAP
50,000 without power Some 50,000 homes in Britain were without power on Christmas Day following recent storms, while hundreds of people have been evacuated due to flooding. High winds and heavy rain battered parts of Europe earlier in the week, with around 50,000 homes still without electricity. Around 90 people were evacuated from the early hours of yesterday morning from their homes by the River Stour near Bournemouth on the south coast due to floods, emergency services said. In southeast England, evacuations took place in the London commuter belt towns of Dorking, Leatherhead, Guildford, Godalming and Tonbridge, emergency services added. - AFP

■ TABLETS AND CHILDREN
Tablets a hit, but experts worry By Bree Fowler Tablet computers are so easy to use that even a three-year-old can master them. And that has some paediatricians and other health experts worried. Since navigating a tablet generally doesn’t require the ability to type or read, children as young as toddlers can quickly learn how to stream movies, scroll through family photos or play simple games. That ease-of-use makes tablets —and smartphones— popular with busy parents who use them to pacify their kids during car rides, restaurant outings or while they’re at home trying to get dinner on the table. And many feel a little less guilty about it if they think there’s educational value to the apps and games their children use. The devices ranked among the top holiday gifts for children this year. Gadget makers such as Samsung have introduced tablets specifically designed for kids and many manufacturers of adult tablets now include parental controls. Those products are in addition to the slew of kiddie tablets produced by electronic toy makers such as LeapFrog, Vtech and Toys R Us. But some experts note there’s no evidence that screen time — whether from a TV or tablet — provides any educational or developmental benefits for babies and toddlers. Yet it takes away from activities that do promote brain development, such as nonelectronic toys and adult interaction. They also say that too much screen time has been linked to behaviour problems and delayed social development in older children. Dr Dimitri Christakis, a paediatrician at Seattle Children’s
Marc Cohen, 5, uses a Sesame Street app on his tablet at home in New York. ap photo
Hospital, points out that iPads have only been on the market for a little over three years, which means tablet-related research is still in its infancy. Christakis says educational games and apps have some value if they engage a child and prompt them to interact with the device, but cautioned that if all children do is watch videos on their tablets, then it’s just like watching TV, which has a limited ability to engage a child. He also notes that parents need to be mindful of whether tablet time is replacing more important activities such as sleeping, reading or interacting with adults. He says that while the
American Academy of Paediatrics recommends no more than one to two hours of screen time a day for kids over the age of two, he thinks one hour is plenty. “The single most important thing for children is time with parents and caregivers,” he says. “Nothing is more important in terms of social development. If time with the tablet comes at the expense of that, that’s not good.” Dr Rahil Briggs, a paediatric psychologist at New York’s Montefiore Medical Center, says tablet usage needs to be limited for the youngest of children, because too much screen time can slow language development.
And since there’s very little research out there so far, experts still don’t know exactly how much is too much, she says. For older children, Briggs says too much tablet use can slow social development. She notes that the solitary nature of the activity means that kids aren’t using that time to learn how to make friends or pick up on social cues. Some experts, however, believe tablets and smartphones possess unique educational benefits. Jill Buban, dean of the School of Education at Post University in Waterbury Connecticut, says the more children absorb and understand technology before they start school, the more comfortable they’ll feel when they enter a classroom for the first time. But she says even the best educational apps must be monitored by parents and limited. She recommends no more than 30 minutes of tablet usage at a time in light of the short attention spans of most young kids. “There’s so much media out there and so much marketing,” she says. “It’s all about smart choices and research, whether it’s an app on a tablet or a TV show.” Susan Linn, director of the Campaign for a CommercialFree Childhood, says parents should be wary of any TV show or app that touts educational benefits for babies or toddlers, saying that scientists have yet to prove that there are any. “Babies and young children are spending huge amounts of time with screen media when really what they need is handson creative play, active time and face-to-face time with the people that love them,” Linn said. Linn’s group is urging the Federal Trade Commission to examine the marketing prac-
tices of certain apps and games geared toward babies. “The best toys are the ones that just lie there until the child transforms them,” Linn said pointing to blocks and stuffed animals as examples. “If all children do is push a button, that’s not the kind of play that promotes learning.” Since its debut over 40 years ago, the TV show Sesame Street has dealt with questions about the amount of screen time small children should have. Scott Chambers, Sesame Workshop’s senior vice-president for digital content, says the brand, which now includes 45 apps and 160 e-books, has gotten a huge boost from touch screen devices, which are much easier for preschoolers to handle than computer mice. That content can provide children with a much more customised and interactive educational experience than the show could hope to deliver, he says. “It’s a balancing act, but all we can do is try to provide a good enriching media experience wherever parents and preschoolers may be,” Chambers says. Adam Cohen, a stay-at-home father of two from New York, says apps have been a key part of his five-year-old son Marc’s education since he was a baby. “He had an iPad at close to 18 months so he was definitely one of those babies swiping away in his stroller,” Cohen says. “Now it’s different, but back then we were a little ostracised. Now he’s reading at close to a secondgrade reading level and I credit a lot of that to iPad apps.” Marc now has his own iPad loaded with mostly educational content and his baby sister Harper, who isn’t yet one-yearold, seems frustrated that she doesn’t have one too, Cohen says. - AP

■ ASHBURTON RACES
May turns on magic Methven reinsman Ricky May turned on a stellar performance at the last harness meet of the year on the Ashburton track yesterday. May’s winning form began early into the Boxing Day race meeting, winning the second race of the day with Washington Express on a wet and slushy track. He followed up in the next race, leading the field across the finishing line with Ranfurly Rulz. In race 4 it was My Mum Astar’s turn to shine, again with May’s in the driver’s seat, before he took the honours with Brute Courage in race 5. May took second place in the sixth race of the day, driving Live the Dream – pipped at the post by Princess Sophia, driven by Kimberly Butt. He was back in the winners ring with Helena Jet in race 8, before driving Jason Rulz in to third place in race 9. In the last race of the day May drove Mossdale Conner into second place, behind Angus T Jones, driven by Terry Chmiel, completing a highly successful day with five wins and three placings from 10 starts.
In brief Diamond One sparkles Quality shone through at Wingatui yesterday when the talented four-year-old The Diamond One overcame testing conditions for a deserved and timely black type success to go with her impressive pedigree. The daughter of Take Of The Cat and the dual Group One winner The Jewel (Waikato International Stakes, New Zealand 1000 Guineas) was too good for her rivals in the Listed BP2GO Alco Motors Stakes Handicap. On a track that was downgraded from a Slow 9 to a Heavy 11 by the time The Diamond One was in action, the Steve Anderton-trained mare came from last near the turn to win going away by three-quarters of a length. She has now won four times from 10 appearances.
Day for mudlarks
Brave fightback Talented O’Reilly filly Hera added spice to the race for the New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year title when she stormed into third place on the series points table with a narrow, but well deserved win in the Gr. 2 Cambridge Stud Eight Carat Classic at Ellerslie on Boxing Day. The nuggety filly was clearly headed by favourite Costa Viva early in the run home, but fought back in a dour battle to hold the favourite out by a neck at the finish with Rising Romance running on stoutly for third.

Top international jockey James McDonald would have gained a good degree of satisfaction from afar when a gritty Historian landed a Group One blow at Ellerslie on Boxing Day. McDonald had partnered the six-year-old when seventh in the Gr.2 Coupland’s Bakeries Mile at Riccarton last month and gave trainer Gary Alton good reason to set his sights on the weight-for-age feature. “James said he would love to ride him in a Group One over 2000 metres – I was a bit sceptical, but he was right and he’s a great horse,” Alton said. Historian’s previous four wins, including the Gr.1 Thorndon Mile, had been up to 1600 metres and, with a ride McDonald himself would have been proud of, the six-year-old got home by a narrow margin for Matt Cameron.
Puccini all set Puccini has a long way to go to emulate the racing deeds of his half-brother, but the three-year-old has time on his side and co-trainer Peter McKay is confident the colt can make it all the way to the top. The sibling to six-time Group One winner Sir Slick posted his most important success to date when he won an incident-packed Gr.2 Lindauer Great Northern Guineas at Ellerslie. “Sir Slick took a while to win his Group Ones,” said McKay, who prepares Puccini with his son Jacob at Matamata. “I’ve always had a lot of faith in the horse and he went a couple of nice races as a two-year-old and again this season. “His run in the 2000 Guineas was huge and he knuckled over at the start and then came wide on the turn and he just kept coming.” Puccini finished fourth in the Riccarton feature and had pleased McKay with his progress since. - NZ Racing Desk
In brief Rising star in Classic The ASB Classic field has been boosted by a rising star of women’s tennis, with Croatia’s Ana Konjuh handed a wildcard into the event. Konjuh, a junior grand slam winner, joins one of the strongest ASB Classic fields to date ahead of the tournament’s start on Monday. While the likes of seven-time grand slam champion Venus Williams and former world No 1 Ana Ivanovic will capture much of the attention, Konjuh will also be worth keeping an eye on. In 2013, the 15-year-old enjoyed wins in both the singles and doubles in the Australian Open main draw, while she also took out her second junior grand slam title at the US Open.
New rules for Vettel Sebastian Vettel coasted to a fourth consecutive title in 2013 but whether the record-breaking German makes it five next year could depend on how he and Red Bull get to grips with Formula One’s new technical landscape. In what has been described as the biggest revolution the sport has ever experienced, a raft of changes are set to shake up the pit lane and inject some much needed unpredictability to the outcome of races. When Vettel and company line up for the season-opening Australian Grand Prix in March their cars will have undergone a major facelift, sporting a new chassis, a lower nose, and a radical new engine.
Bad weather in store Competitors in this year’s Sydney to Hobart have been warned to expect gale-force winds and waves of up to 12 metres following a front anticipated to hit the fleet on Saturday night. While the bigger boats including the five supermaxis should be finished before the big weather hits, the smaller and slower boats can expect to be pounded. Between Saturday night and Monday, the members of the fleet still racing can expect west to south-west winds from 30 up to 40 knots, possibly rising to 60. The wave heights are also expected to increase from an average of three to seven metres with individual waves possibly getting up to 10-12m on Monday.
Kallis retires South African cricketing great Jacques Kallis has announced he will retire from Test and First-Class cricket after the upcoming Test against India, which is underway in Durban. However, the 38-yearold - described by Cricket South Africa (CSA) chief executive Haroon Lorgat as the test team’s ‘Rock of Gibraltar’ - is determined to play for the one day team at the 2015 World Cup. “It’s been an honour and a privilege to have been part of the South African Test team since making my debut 18 years ago,” the star all-rounder said. “I have enjoyed every moment out in the middle but I just feel that the time is right to hang up my Test whites,” he said in a statement issued by CSA. “It wasn’t an easy decision to come to, especially with Australia around the corner and the success this team is enjoying, but I feel that I have made my contribution in this format.” - AAP

■ ASHES CRICKET
Pietersen stars for England Kevin Pietersen produced his highest score of the series as England rode their luck to reach 6-226 at stumps on day one of the fourth Ashes Test against Australia. A world-record crowd of 91,092 saw Australia captain Michael Clarke make the surprising decision to bowl first in overcast conditions. And without Pietersen’s resistance, helped by some missed chances, Australia could have more emphatically claimed the honours for the opening day. Pietersen’s unbeaten 67 off 152 balls has at least given the tourists, who trail three-nil in the five-match series, some hope of making a game of it. Australia’s bowling attack was unbalanced on Thursday by the groin injury to star allrounder Shane Watson, who limped off midway through his seventh over and returned later in the day to take a catch at first slip. Tailender Tim Bresnan survived a scary late burst from Mitchell Johnson (2-59) with the second new ball to be one not out. England captain Alastair Cook (27) shared an opening stand of 48 with Michael Carberry. Dropped at third slip on two, Carberry was bowled by an inswinger from Watson on 38. It was time for the main event after Joe Root was out for 24 at 3-106 as the right-hander was caught behind off the bowling of Ryan Harris. Heavily criticised for his shot selection during a modest series and labelled a mug by Geoff Boycott, Pietersen put his head

down in a patient 67-run stand with Ian Bell (27). Bell was the victim of a leg cutter from Harris who claimed 2-32 off 20 overs. Pietersen was caught at fine leg on six before sub fielder Nathan Coulter-Nile stumbled over the boundary and the batsman had a second life on 41 when George Bailey dropped a tough chance at mid-wicket. Harris looked unimpressed as a third chance went begging off his bowling.
Pietersen was booed to the crease and booed for his halfcentury milestone. On 45 he had a close encounter with a fly and held up play for several minutes, appearing to dry-retch. The crowd showed no sympathy, clapping impatiently. Johnson removed Ben Stokes (14) and Jonny Bairstow (10) with the second new ball in a fiery spell that included Pietersen top-edging a pull shot for six.
Pietersen on 63 became England’s fourth-leading run-scorer, fittingly overtaking Boycott (8114). Clarke’s decision to bowl was the first time Australia had inserted England since Ricky Ponting’s ill-fated move at Edgbaston in 2005. “I can’t believe I’m saying this. We’re going to have a bowl first,” Clarke said. “There’s enough moisture and grass on the wicket.” - AAP
■ ASB TENNIS
Jones set for fitting farewell in Auckland By Kris shannon A return and a farewell rolled into one - the ASB Classic promises to be a memorable week for Sacha Jones. Born and raised in Auckland before representing Australia for the last two years, the tournament offers a swansong for Jones in front of friends and family before she takes a prolonged - and possibly permanent - break from the sport. The 23-year-old has been beset by injuries for much of 2013 and the new year will bring a new start, with Jones planning to pursue a career in teaching. She has enrolled at the University of Auckland and is excited about her second life, a prospect seldom contemplated
by those of such youth but a common reality in women’s tennis. But first Jones will get a chance to say goodbye to the sport at a tournament she first played in 2008, an opportunity afforded after winning the New Zealand Championships and, with it, a wildcard into Mon-
day’s main draw. “All my family and friends are in Auckland and I love this city,” she said. “That’s the best part - I feel like my family pretty much fills up half the stand. “I just want to enjoy it, have fun, and hopefully just play loose and relaxed and see how I do.” Even if she were to make a deep run in the tournament, the world No 287 left little room for a change of heart regarding her playing future. In fact, looking ahead, Jones was unsure if she would ever return to professional tennis. While a break from the game may renew her passion for the sport, it will hardly help a body that has been breaking down in increments.
“I’ve had some really bad injuries the last year or so,” she said. “Just to have these sorts of injuries, it’s quite debilitating to your career and also to your enjoyment factor of playing tennis. “My body’s pretty messed up and there’s nothing I can really do about it. I’ve had four stress fractures in my ribs, two torn abs, a torn tendon in my ribs, and stress injuries in my shins. “So there’s not really much I can do for that - just a lot of pain-killers and Voltaren after pretty much every match I play, which sucks.” It’s an agony Jones wants to avoid, and one which has seen her consider life after tennis for some time. - APNZ

Phoenix players celebrate a goal.
Phoenix hoping to break travel barriers By Daniel RichaRDson During the pre-season, the Wellington Phoenix made it clear that travel to Australia wasn’t going to be an excuse for bad results this year. In seasons gone by, Wellington have relied heavily on their ability to win at their Westpac Stadium fortress. Even a draw on the road was celebrated as an achievement. But as visiting Australian sides started to win with regularity at the Cake Tin last summer, the Phoenix realised they had to buck up their ideas when they went across the ditch if they wanted to be competitive. New Phoenix coach Ernie Merrick, who was finally given his first win in charge with last Sunday’s 1-0 triumph over Sydney FC, stressed the importance of embracing the travel factor this season. “I think we’ve changed the mindset of the players,” Merrick said. “Travel is a distraction and it’s not an excuse for losing and we’ve got this approach where it doesn’t matter if we are playing home or away, we are going to play attacking football. Sometimes it will cost us, sometimes it won’t. “I’m driving it but the players have got to take ownership of that. In pre-season we had a couple of days where we talked about our values and our standards and what sort of trademark we are going to be recognised for and one is no complaints about travel. “If you can’t do it, don’t turn up - just
get on with winning games and giving everything for the fans that we have.” Granted the Phoenix are yet to win away from home this season but they’ve looked a different outfit to teams of seasons gone by who went away and were forced into their shells. Wellington skipper Andrew Durante said Merrick’s influence was starting to show through. “I also think tactics have played a big part. I think in previous seasons we’ve gone into more of a defensive shape away from home but with Ernie we play pretty much the same way as we would at home or away. That gives the players the ability to press the ball going forward and gives us enough chances.” While this all sounds good in practice, Wellington have still never won an away game in Victoria. In 15 games against the Melbourne Victory, or their cross-town rivals the Heart, the Phoenix have drawn five and lost 10 since 2007. It’s a terrible record, but they have a chance to atone - in a small way - when they meet the winless Heart at AAMI Park tonight. “We know it’s an important game, it’s a great chance for us to get three points,” Durante said. “They’re low on confidence, there’s a lot of internal problems from what I hear, so it’s going to be difficult but it’s a good chance for us.” Tyler Boyd will come into the Phoenix squad following the season-ending Achilles tendon injury to Paul Ifill. - APNZ
Former Crystal Palace owner dies Former Crystal Palace owner and chairman Ron Noades has died aged 76 of lung cancer, the club has announced. Noades ran Palace for 17 years - during which they reached the 1990 FA Cup final and came third in the old First Division in 1991 - and even had a spell as caretaker manager after the sacking of Italian Attilio Lombardo in 1998. The turning point in the club’s for-
tunes came in 1984 when Noades hired former England winger Steve Coppell as manager and he took the club back into the top flight in 1989 after an eight-year absence. A year later, a side featuring players such as future Arsenal star Ian Wright and present Newcastle manager Alan Pardew reached the FA Cup final - beating Liverpool in an epic semi-final. - AP

Windies inspired for ODI starter BY DAVID LEGGAT The West Indies spent Christmas morning watching Invictus, the celebrated film of the 1995 rugby World Cup. Suitably inspired, they bowled and fielded with spirit and skill and took the initiative with a two-wicket win in the opening ODI at Eden Park last night. It was a bowlers’ benefit, with a mix of top class seam bowling and some ropey batting combining to make a game of 313 runs and 18 wickets with the West Indies getting over the line with just two wickets to spare. But at halftime, the question
being asked, slightly tongue in cheek, was whether New Zealand’s test success was messing up their ODI game. At that point it seemed a sensible batting effort from the West Indies would have the smiles back after the disappointment of their 2-0 test beating. Instead the tourists’ needed a breezy unbeaten 43 off 27 balls from allrounder Darren Sammy to make sure they got the win, as they, too, struggled with the bat. New Zealand had reached 156, a distinctly ordinary effort, but which was actually pretty good considering they were listing hard at 112 for nine.
However, New Zealand’s (one-day) left arm hero Mitchell McClenaghan shot through the West Indies top order, who looked hopeless against the ball moving sideways and at one point were 96 for six. McClenaghan got four wickets in 27 deliveries with classy, sharp swing bowling. What Trent Boult produced at the Basin Reserve in the second test, McClenaghan mirrored last night. Kyle Mills played his part and it seemed the West Indies would run out of steam well short of the target, before the ebullient Sammy took charge.
Ashburton’s Boxing Day races P17
McClenaghan is an ODI marvel. His record is outstanding 40 wickets in 15 matches at just 19 runs apiece. Only Lendl Simmons of the specialist batsmen, with exotic strokeplay and crisp striking, seemed to have a dose of stickability about him. Until, that is, he was adjudged caught at slip by Ross Taylor, after an interminable delay for third umpire checking. Taylor indicated he wasn’t certain. One angle showed Simmons slightly more out than the other, but it was hardly conclusive. However Sammy, who endured considerable angst as test
skipper, had the final say. However, 14 no balls in a tight contest is unacceptable from New Zealand. Earlier New Zealand’s batting display was ordinary, and at times careless. Ryder’s return lasted five balls, slapping Ravi Rampaul hard to cover point; Ross Taylor had a yes, no, oops muddle with Kane Williamson and was run out; while Sunil Narine’s deceptive spin meant some batsmen looked as if they were trying to play him with a toothpick. The batsmen who stood tallest were called McCullum, with captain Brendon making his 26th ODI 50. - APNZ
