Council plan takes aim at legal highs BY MYLES HUME

MYLES.H@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

The uphill battle facing Rakaia’s Adult Thingz store to sell legal highs will become a whole lot harder if the public supports the council’s stance on the products. Mid Canterbury residents will have their say on how the council tackles the controversy surrounding legal highs after the environmental services committee yesterday voted unanimously to adopt a draft Local Approved Products Policy (LAPP). The LAPP, established by a working party made up of

councillors Rod Beavan, Ken Cutforth, Donna Favel and Martin Nordqvist, restricts the location of legal high retailers. Last month Mid Canterbury’s sole synthetic drugs retailer Adult Thingz had to pull legal highs from its shelves after the government banned the sale of the products until they were proven safe. The council expects the products could return within 18 months, so it has continued its LAPP process “to protect the interests of the district”. If the LAPP goes ahead as proposed, it would spell the end of the Rakaia store selling gov-

ernment approved psychoactive products in its current location. Mr Cutforth said there was a perception the council could ban the products, but it could only enforce restrictions on location of sale. Mr Beavan said having the retailers based in the Ashburton CBD meant they were close to emergency services if a user reacted badly. The policy also aims to have R18 stores in visible areas to prevent break-ins, while the negative impact would be reduced if it was taken away from Mid Canterbury suburbs and towns.

Fans rally around One Direction

Topical subjects in the Guardian’s opinion pages have changed throughout the years, but praise for the volunteer firefighters has been constant. This is an excerpt from a letter published on May 30, 1906:

Fans have rallied around boy band One Direction after two members were shown smoking “an illegal substance” on a video clip. The band’s lawyers are now dealing with the video showing the boys smoking what the singers referred to as an “illegal substance”. British tabloid The Daily Mail posted a fiveminute clip this week of Zayn Malik smoking and speaking with Louis Tomlinson, who is filming. But fans who queued in heavy rain before the opening night of the UK leg of their Where We Are tour in Sunderland yesterday were keen to show their support. Shelby Clark, 20, from Newcastle, said: “They could be doing worse, it’s not that bad.”

Captain Barber and his men deserve our thanks for the energy they display when fighting the flames. Those who witnessed the East Street fire will agree the firemen stuck to their posts at great personal risk and checked what might have been a more serious conflagration, they are ever ready, ever willing, striving with will to save.

Clark makes 23 on Forbes power list Former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark is the 23rd most powerful woman in the world in Forbes magazine’s annual list published overnight. The head of the UN’s development programme has slipped two places from last year but remains the only New Zealander on the American business publication’s list. It is her 10th appearance. New York-based Miss Clark is in charge of a multibilliondollar budget and a large staff based in more than 150 countries. She took up her current post in 2009 after she was defeated by John Key in the 2008 general election. German Chancellor Angela Merkel tops the Forbes list for the eighth time. US Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen is in second spot and philanthropist Melinda Gates is ranked third.

■ ASHBURTON SEX OFFENDER

Neighbour fears for children By Erin TaskEr

erin.t@theguardian.co.nz

A mother living with three young children near a convicted sex offender at the centre of a leaflet drop in Ashburton mailboxes this week says she fears for her children. The woman, who did not wish to be named, said she was angered to read in yesterday’s Guardian that neighbours were defending the man and asking people to let him get on with his life. She’s also a neighbour and she’s disgusted by what she read in the leaflet, and is angered he’s living in an area close to schools and preschools. “I’ve got children and I’m definitely not defending him; I’m disgusted,” she said. The leaflet contained information about the man’s criminal history – including convictions for sexual offences against children under 12 and sexual acts on animals – an address and a car registration number. The woman who contacted the Guardian yesterday said she knew there was a convicted sex offender living in the town after someone posted a link on social me-

dia to the Sensible Sentencing Trust website following an attempted abduction of an 8-year-old girl in Allenton recently. It wasn’t until the flyer landed in her letterbox this week though that she realised he lived just a stone’s throw away from her home. “To find out he lived so close, it was a bit … yucky,” she said. She said there was a school and a preschool nearby and children were always walking down the street, on their way to and from school. This week, the street’s got even busier. “Our road has become so busy from walkers and cars; people walking past and having a look down the driveway,” she said. She’d recently spoken to her children about stranger danger following the Allenton abduction attempt, but had not spoken to them about the convicted sex offender living nearby. “I want to keep it at that. I don’t want to scare them too much.” She wanted to know what was being done to protect families like hers, given the leaflet said the man had a high risk of reoffending.

Public safety ‘key priority’ By Erin TaskEr

erin.t@theguardian.co.nz

Public safety is the key priority when placing a sex offender back in the community Department of Corrections Canterbury district manager Wayne McKnight said. He said a significant amount of preparation went in to approving suitable residential addresses. “No address would be approved if it was considered that there was an undue risk to the safety of the community by having the offender live there,” Mr McKnight said. His comments follow this week’s leaflet drop in Ashburton mailboxes advising residents that a convicted sex offender was living in the area. Information was obtained from the Sensible Sentencing Trust’s website, but the leaflet also contained an address and a car registration plate, understood

to be the man’s address and car. The man has convictions for sexual offending against children under 12 and sexual acts on animals. Mr McKnight said thorough assessments of addresses were completed before an offender moved in. “Which includes checking the property itself, any shared driveways, a visual check of neighbouring properties, proximity of the house to schools, kindergartens, parks, swimming pools, libraries, thoroughfares and other places frequented by children,” he said. Notification to a local community or immediate neighbours is considered on a case-by-case basis. “If specific potential risks are identified, Corrections and police may contact neighbours to advise an offender is living in the area and to offer advice on how to keep themselves safe, taking into account the principles of the Privacy Act,” Mr McKnight said.

Eleven people have been arrested following a police operation targeting the sale and supply of methamphetamine throughout Waiuku and Pukekohe. Operation Cesium finished on Wednesday after netting 11 people aged from 27 to 49 who have all been charged with supplying quantities of methamphetamine, Detective Inspector Dave Lynch said. It’s alleged the main target of the operation sold in excess of 2kg of methamphetamine with a street value of $2 million over a six month period. Yesterday police seized assets and cash along with 30g of cannabis and found 85g of methamphetamine with a street value of $85,000, Mr Lynch said. Further arrests we are expected. - APNZ

New Zealand has the highest rate of obesity in Australasia, according to a new global analysis. Health reporter Toni Williams went to the streets to ask “how do we fix it?”

John Hobbs

“I just think a lot of it has to do with the price of healthy food and the cost to feed a family.”

Willie Murney

“We’ve got enough activities, people should be doing more.”

Yep Ng

“Young kids in my opinion have so much food in New Zealand, probably a bit lazy, eating the wrong foods and need more exercise.”

“People need to get back to basics and learn to cook. People can use fast food restaurants but need to learn about healthy choices.”

Suzanne Swindley

“We need to eat healthier and exercise more.”

■ MID CANTERBURY OBESITY

Two-thirds of Kiwis overweight or obese BY TONI WILLIAMS & PATRICE DOUGAN OF APNZ Mid Canterbury has the same obesity issue as any other New Zealand town, according to an Ashburton health campaigner. A new global analysis placed New Zealand with the highest rate of obesity in Australasia. Dean Rattray of Obesity Awareness Support said a look around town definitely showed there was an obesity issue in the district. “When you look around I think there is definitely room for awareness.” The number of Kiwis classed as overweight or obese according to the analysis had risen dramatically since 1980, hitting 66 per cent, the study of trend data from 188 countries found - up from 50 per cent 33 years ago. Childhood obesity rates have also increased, rising to 29 per cent from 18

per cent in the same period. The research, published in medical journal The Lancet, was conducted by an international consortium of researchers led by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington. The study was part of the wide-ranging Global Burden of Disease project. It found an estimated 2.2 million adults in New Zealand are overweight and of those 960,000 are obese. Mr Rattray said in the past 30 years the living needs of people had changed. He said often two parents worked so mealtimes had changed and shopping was available seven days a week. “I think we have probably got lazier as we have got busier. “When you can buy a bottle of fizzy drink for $1.50 or $1, and a bottle of water for $3 or $4 for a family, that’s not good. “There’re a lot of sugars out there that we don’t need,” Mr Rattray said. He said people needed to be aware of what they were eating and how much they were eating. “I am a great believer of eating healthy and exercise plans working together. The more bad stuff we eat then the more exercise we have to do. “People need to eat for hunger, not for their eyes,” he said.

NEW ZEALAND OBESITY STATISTICS According to the report, within the Australasia region New Zealand had the highest rate of obesity in both adults (29 per cent) and children (nine per cent). More women than men were obese, with 510,000 women falling into that category compared to 450,000 men. Half of all overweight women in New Zealand were obese.

Obesity rates for women aged 20 or older reached 30 per cent – it was more than triple the obesity rates among girls (nine per cent). Obesity rates among boys climbed from about 10 per cent in childhood and adolescence to almost 28 per cent in adulthood. Co author of the report, AUT University professor Valery Feigin said being overweight was a well-estab-

lished risk factor for stroke, heart attack, dementia and cancer – the four major causes of death and disability in New Zealand. “The fact that New Zealand has the highest rates of adult and child obesity in the region is very alarming. If this obesity epidemic is not stopped, we will suffer an increase in the burden of these most devastating disorders,” she said.

In brief Accused on the run An accused man made a break for freedom from the Gore District Court on Wednesday and is still on the run. Rory Damien Partridge dodged security at the backdoor of the courthouse around 4pm. The 23-year-old was appearing in court on charges related to burglary and driving while disqualified. Police said they have searched Gore for him and police in Invercargill had joined the search. Police said Partridge should not be approached but sightings of him should be reported to police. - APNZ

Light shone at copter Queenstown Police have received a report of a spotlight being shone into the cockpit of a Queenstownbased helicopter on a night medivac mission. Police said the incident on Tuesday about 11pm was in the area between Alexandra and Bannockburn. It temporarily endangered the aircraft by limiting the pilot’s ability to navigate using night vision goggles. Senior sergeant John Fookes said shining lights or lasers at aircraft endangered those on board, and was a serious offence. - APNZ

Fears for Bailey Waitakere Police and Child Youth and Family still have concerns for the welfare of 10 month-old Bailey Cribb. Police said it was though Bailey’s biological mother, Nikki Cribb, has Bailey in her care and is actively avoiding authorities. Child Youth and Family have lawful custody of Bailey. Nikki is believed to have travelled out of Auckland and is now thought to be in the Hamilton area. There is a warrant for her arrest for breaching supervision conditions. Police said anyone actively assisting Ms Cribb to avoid detection may be committing a criminal offence. - APNZ

Ten-year passport bid A Parliamentary committee has recommended that Government re-introduce 10-year passports. The Government Administration select committee has supported a petition by ex-pat New Zealander Kyle Lockwood, who sought to reverse a law change in 2005. The validity period of passports was cut from 10 years to five years in an attempt to reduce the risk of counterfeiting and identity fraud. The committee said the introduction of biometric passports in New Zealand had reduced the risk of passport fraud. - APNZ

McCormack resigns The West Coast District Health Board chairman has given his resignation effective from June 13, 2014. Dr Paul McCormack has advised the Minister of Health of his decision.

■ ASHBURTON ANNUAL PLAN SUBMISSIONS

Rate rise likely to be 7.2 per cent BY MYLES HUME

MYLES.H@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Mid Canterbury residents are staring down a district-wide 7.2 per cent rate increase for the coming year. Following three days of submissions and deliberations this week, Ashburton district councillors added a modest 0.18 per cent to the original proposed

rate increase as they combed through submissions from organisations and residents. The EA Networks Centre, Art Gallery and Heritage Centre are largely behind the rise, making up about five per cent of the rise as the council looks to spend about $28,793,140 for the coming year. Safer Ashburton is the big-

gest benefactor from deliberations, with councillors promising to allocated $170,000 for the coming year, forcing the council to find an additional $36,000. Organisations including the Hakatere Marae, Mid Canterbury Hockey, Multi Cultural Bite and Sport Mid Canterbury are also likely to receive a hand up, while yesterday councillors

decided to cover the rental cost of the Ashburton Budget Advisory Service by agreeing to pay half of the $9000 bill. Mid Canterbury roads and footpaths will receive a significant 8.3 per cent funding increase, with the council asking $7,642,000 from ratepayers. There will also be an additional $500,000 in capital ex-

penditure spent on roads, boosting the budget agreed to by NZTA by $1 million. The original rate increases outlined in the draft annual plan will remain relatively unchanged. Councillors will now await a final annual plan to be drawn up before voting to adopt it on Thursday June 26.

Agencies’ pleas ‘concerning’ Ashburton district councillors are so alarmed about the number of social agencies seeking its support they want to raise the issue with local MPs. During annual plan submission deliberations this week, the council received a raft of submissions from cash-strapped social agencies seeking funds. Councillor Ken Cutforth said it became “a slippery slope” when the council subsidised agencies which were traditionally government funded. Chairman Neil Brown questioned if Rangitata MP Jo Goodhew and Selwyn

MP Amy Adams should be invited to a meeting. It was agreed, and the invitation would also be sent out to those agencies which want to highlight their plight. Mayor Angus McKay will make contact to the MPs to organise a meeting. However, councillor Stuart Wilson said it would be pointless. “Everyone wants social services, but no one wants to pay. We will get the ministers in here and they will say people come to them wanting this and that, but they are trying to stay in the middle of the road. I think it will be a waste of time.”

■ LUNG CANCER AWARENESS

In brief

Lasting coughs need checking By Toni WilliamS

Toni.w@Theguardian.co.nz

Mid Cantabrians with out of the ordinary coughs or shortness of breath should visit their doctor, according to an Ashburton general practitioner. As the Minister of Health launched The 2014 Lung Cancer Health Report detailing how little Kiwis knew about the symptoms of lung cancer, Ashburton GP spokesman Dr John Guthrie said any cough out of the ordinary, not clearing up or happening too often, should be checked out. He said the difficulty for a doctor was identifying patients’ coughs were more different than usual. Dr Guthrie said lung cancer caused about one in five cancer deaths. It was one of the most ag-

gressive forms of cancer and not easy to treat, except in the earliest phases. “Many people are unaware of the seriousness of their symptoms as often they are initially similar to common flu symptoms with a cough and some sputum.” Simple bronchitis or chesty coughs were expected to clear up and most people felt better within a week. “As long as a cough is improving, it is improving.” “If on the other hand a cough is not clearing up or is persisting for more than six weeks or so, it should be checked out.” “It is obvious that everyone who has a cough can’t have a chest x-ray and usually the doctor needs something in the history, or his examination that points him in the direction of looking further,” Dr Guthrie said.

“Fortunately most coughs that doctors see are mainly short term and it is likely most GPs will see nil to a maximum of three patients a year with a lung cancer.” The report released this week highlighted the need to raise awareness about the key symptoms of lung cancer. It was commissioned by Pfizer New Zealand. Oncologist and Cancer Society Medical Director associate professor Chris Atkinson said lung cancer accounted for around 19 per cent of cancer deaths (almost 1650 people per year). He said 2000 people were diagnosed with it every year. “Whilst there is a strong association between smoking and lung cancer, non-smokers are at risk too. “This report highlights the need to raise awareness of the

SYMPTOMS The most common symptoms of lung cancer were: ■ a cough that does not go away ■ hoarseness or loss of voice ■ repeated bouts of pneumonia or bronchitis ■ shortness of breath or increased breathlessness ■ noisy breathing ■ pain in the chest, upper back or ribs ■ coughing up blood ■ low energy levels ■ neck and arm swelling and swollen veins

key symptoms of lung cancer. People need to know the symptoms and seek medical advice quickly.” “The prognosis is much better when there is an early diagnosis,” he said.

Ms Sellars said an investigation was under way in to how the primary school aged child got inside an area that is used by keepers to hand-feed Rokan the tiger. “We don’t know how the incident occurred and an investigation is under way,” Ms Sellars said. “It is definitely being taken seriously.” - APNZ

■ MID CANTERBURY PLOUGHING COMPETITIONS

Busy time ahead for competitors By michelle nelSon michelle.n@Theguardian.co.nz

In the fields of opportunity it’s ploughing time again, and across the district ploughing associations are gearing up for their winter matches. The Mid Canterbury Vintage Machinery Club will kick off on Saturday, at Matthew and Julia Paton’s property on the corner of Christies Road and Wakanui Road. There will be vintage, classic and Silver Plough classes. Club spokesperson John Hall said about 30 tractors are

expected to turn up for the popular match, which attracts competitors from across Canterbury. The Silver Plough class will be a qualifying match for a spot in the New Zealand finals at Palmerston next year. Sunday’s competition will be held at Christine and Ian Lowe’s farm, on Swamp Road, Hinds. As well as the usual events, the Erewhon clydesdales will be competing in the horse drawn classes. The Methven Ploughing As-

sociation’s competition kicks off at 10.30am on Saturday, June 7, at Richard Lilley’s property, signposted on the Methven Highway. The following day Wilkinson’s property on Dromore Hatfield Road will be the scene of the Rakaia Ploughing Association’s match, with Silver Plough and Case IH reverse ploughing qualifying competitions, two vintage classes and a farm ploughing class. It also starts at 10.30am and will be signposted from the main road at Chertsey.

A new land use and discharge consent granted to Rangitata Diversion Race Management Ltd will allow for the irrigation of a further 20,000 hectares anywhere in Mid Canterbury. The consent is the result of months of negotiations with Environment Canterbury, RDRML chief executive Ben Curry said. Obtaining it was imperative because of restrictions on nutrient discharge from farming activities brought in by the Land and Water Regional Plan. The consent grants a maximum nitrogen cap for the existing 75,000 hectares under irrigation from the RDR and also provides for a maximum nitrogen limit to irrigate a further 20,000 hectares of previously consented land anywhere in Mid Canterbury. “Although the consent is only for a five year period, it is a significant step in the development of irrigation in Mid Canterbury”, Mr Curry said yesterday. “Since the inception of the RDR and

its three associated irrigation schemes in the 1940s, irrigation has been constantly evolving, with the aim of using the water as efficiently as possible.” The new consent will enable continued development, but there will be an added emphasis on reducing the environmental footprint through management and auditing of nutrient loss to ground water. “We have been granted a maximum nutrient cap but it’s not a target. The real target is reduction of nutrients, particularly nitrogen,” Mr Curry said. “This is good news for the environment and economic development in the district, but we have to hold up our end of the bargain by promoting and achieving higher standards from farming” “We are fortunate to have some of the best farming practitioners in the country in Mid Canterbury. I am confident that although this is new territory for some, the measures that are being put in place by us will ensure compliance with the consent and ultimately deliver environmental gains.”

■ QUEEN’S BIRTHDAY WEEKEND

Take care on the roads By Erin TaskEr

erin.t@theguardian.co.nz

Mid Canterbury motorists are being urged to take care on the roads this weekend, as the country aims for a second fatality-free Queen’s Birthday weekend in a row. Last year’s zero-fatality Queen’s Birthday weekend was the first since records began in 1956 and police and road safety organisations have launched a Make It To Monday campaign they hope will help motorists make the right choices again this long weekend. Assistant commissioner road policing Dave Cliff said it took just three simple steps to stay safer on the roads. “Buckling your safety belt, driving at a safe speed and not drinking and driving are three of the most basic, life-saving choices that every motorist has the power to make this Queen’s Birthday weekend. “Making that right choice can be all the difference between life, death or permanent injury – whether for yourself, your mates, your family – or for someone else’s.” A video launched on social media yes-

terday featured primary school children using the hashtag #MakeItToMonday and coming up with quirky road safety wisdom beyond their years. They’re urging parents, caregivers and other drivers to drive safety and help keep everyone safe on the roads. “The steps to survive on our roads are so simple that our children can readily recall them, but often it’s the grown-ups who are forgetting,” Mr Cliff said. The video is being supported by a public event in Wellington, with a display of 254 pairs of shoes to represent each life cut short on the roads in 2013. Already this year, crashes have claimed the lives of 125 people – 24 more than at the same time last year. In the vast majority of cases, alcohol, speed and not wearing safety belts were factors. “While we often focused on the statistics, behind every crash is a real person whose death or injury is preventable. “If we keep going at the current rate, there will be at least another 180 empty pairs of shoes representing those lives that have been needlessly taken from us by the end of this year.”

■ PERTH MURDER TRIAL

■ SINGLES NIGHT

Parents ‘battered, bruised’

Raising funds for shelter

By HarriSon CHriStian The parents of a man pushed to his death through a Perth pub window are feeling “battered and bruised” after a retrial which found their son’s killer guilty of manslaughter. Andy Marshall, a 29-yearold musician, was talking to a woman at Cottesloe’s Ocean Beach Hotel in 2011 when rugby league player Stefan Pahia Schmidt shoved him through a full-length secondstorey glass window. Schmidt, who admitted pushing Mr Marshall but claimed he didn’t mean to kill him, was found guilty of murder in 2012 and jailed for at least 14 years. However, three West Aus-

tralian Court Of Appeal judges unanimously determined in August last year that Schmidt would face a retrial, with Justice Michael Buss saying he could have been found guilty of manslaughter instead of murder. Andy Marshall’s parents, Alan and Wendy Marshall, travelled to Perth from their Napier home for a judge-alone retrial in the Supreme Court of Western Australia beginning May 19. Justice John Roderick McKechnie acquitted Schmidt of murder but found him guilty of manslaughter, and sentenced Schmidt to 9 years imprisonment last night. The Marshalls, from Napier, had braced themselves for the

gruelling nature of the retrial, which was expected to have a heightened focus on the injuries leading to their son’s death. Andy Marshall was a cousin of slain Feilding farmer Scott Guy, who was shot in his driveway in 2010. Mr Marshall told Hawke’s Bay Today the couple was accepting of Mr Schmidt’s sentencing yesterday but there were elements of the re-trial they had not agreed with. “We definitely respect the decision the judge has made ... We don’t agree with all the findings; we don’t agree with everything, but we’ll just have to accept it.” He said it would have been a mistake for them to go to the

re-trial looking for satisfaction or closure. “It’s never going to be enough to bring closure for us. I don’t think we’ll ever get closure.” Delivering their victim impact statements before yesterday’s sentencing had been “very emotional”. “We feel battered and bruised. It takes a greater toll than you realise.” The Marshalls planned to take time out with Mr Marshall’s brother in Brisbane before coming home. At the opening of the retrial 11 days ago, Mr Schmidt offered to plead guilty to the lesser charge, but prosecutors rejected the plea deal. - APNZ

Mid Canty community gets behind couple The Clifford family (from second left) Sarah, Sophia, 6, and Charlotte, 8, treated themselves to McDonald’s on Wednesday night, to help another young family going through a tough time. Christchurch 40-year-old Nick Wright has an inoperable brain tumour and the Mid Canterbury community is getting in behind him and his wife Vanessa, originally from Mid Canterbury. The couple have two young daughters and their dad is currently having treatment, as friends and family rally for them. A $10 burger night fundraiser was held at McDonald’s Ashburton and a number of fundraising Trade Me auctions are under way. For more information go to www.welovenick.co.nz.

The power of Facebook passes test It took just 10 hours and 72 shares on Facebook for a UK tourist to track down the owner of a memory card found in a battered camera near Lake Pukaki. British man Tony Bogaert had forgotten about the memory card he had taken from a battered camera he found on

a track near Mt Cook while holidaying in New Zealand in February, until he spotted it in his camera bag at the weekend. Despite it being three months since he removed the memory card, Mr Bogaert thought he would test whether Facebook had any “real use” by choosing a photo showing three women and posting it on his Facebook page on Sunday night.

He asked three of his Kiwi friends to share it in hope of finding the owner. Within 10 hours he had received a Facebook message from Auckland secondary teacher Hannah Manning claiming the memory card. Mr Bogaert said he was blown away by how quickly he found the owner. “When I initially posted the

Mid Canterbury love hopefuls will be purring like pussycats at each other during a Mid Canterbury Animal Shelter singles night this weekend. President Dawn Norn said she had had some men and women register for the over-35s evening, however she was hoping many more would come on board or turn up on the night. Proceeds from the evening, at Hotel Ashburton on Saturday beginning 7.30pm, would go to the Mid Canterbury Animal Shelter. Ms Norn was not herself single, but would be going along on the night with fellow helpers to make sure everyone was mingling well. She said a couple of friends of hers had come up with the idea for such an evening. “So I thought well why not mix that with trying to raise money, I just thought combine the two into a fun night.” She said many of the attendees might very well be animal lovers, so could find they had a lot in common. Money raised would help buy food and pay veterinarian bills for the up to nine cats and nine dogs the shelter fostered and rehomed each year. Anyone wishing to attend can phone Ms Norn on 021828350.

Mid/South Canterbury police are urging people with semi-automatic firearms fitted with free standing pistol grips to contact them urgently. Timaru firearms officer John Wainwright said a law change in December last year re-classified these firearms as Military Style Semi-Automatic firearms. People who possess these firearms have until June 11 to either apply for an endorsement on their existing firearms licence, change the stock or dispose of the firearm. Mr Wainwright said in this ‘grace’ period the normal application fee of $204 will be waived for people choosing to apply for the endorsement. People located after the June 11 deadline will have to pay the full fee and may have the firearm in question seized by police. Mr Wainwright can be contacted at the Timaru Police Station 03 687-9841.

In brief

Pings ‘not from black box’ By Martin Parry The troubled search for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has gotten more confusing, with two US Navy officials giving conflicting statements about the latest developments in the hunt for the downed plane. The Navy’s deputy director of ocean engineering, Michael Dean, has told CNN that the pings picked up by searchers are no longer believed to have come from the plane’s black box. But the Navy took issue with Dean’s comments, which threaten to plunge the marathon and costly search into new confusion and extend the agony of relatives who are desperate for closure. Dean said if the ping-emitting beacons, detected in early April in the southern Indian Ocean, were from the on-board data or voice recorders they would have been found by now. “Our best theory at this point is that (the pings were) likely some sound produced by the ship... or within the electronics of the towed pinger locator,” Dean said. “Always your fear any time you put electronic equipment in the water is that if any water gets in and grounds or shorts something out, that you could start producing sound.” He said it was not possible to absolutely exclude that the pings came from the black boxes, but there was no evidence now to suggest they did. A US Navy spokesman retorted: “Mike Dean’s comments today were speculative and pre-

Bomb blast kills three At least three soldiers have been killed and another two wounded in a roadside bomb blast in northwest Pakistan, officials say. The incident took place on Thursday morning near Miranshah, the capital of North Waziristan, one of the most violent tribal districts that houses Pakistani Taliban and the Haqqani network. “A patrolling team was inspecting the BannuMiransah road to build a military checkpoint when they stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED),” a senior security official based in Peshawar said. - AFP

Mexican storm a killer Torrential rains from tropical storm Amanda have claimed the lives of three people in Mexico, authorities say. Waters rushing down mountainsides caused flash floods that swept away two people in the town of Zitacuaro in the western state of Michoacan, the state’s director of civil protection, Nicolas Alfaro, said yesterday. The fatalities were a 50-year-old man and a girl of eight. In the neighbouring state of Guerrero, one person died in a road accident blamed on the storm. A tree fell on a road and the man drove right into it. - AFP

mature, as we continue to work with our partners to more thoroughly understand the data acquired by the towed pinger locator. As such, we would defer to the Australians, as the lead in the search effort, to make additional information known at the appropriate time.” The Australian-led Joint Agency Coordination Centre made no immediate comment. The US Navy pinger locator, dragged by the Australian ship Ocean Shield, was used by searchers to listen for underwater signals in the remote southern Indian Ocean in an area

where satellite data indicated the plane went down. A series of signals it picked up prompted Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott to say he was “very confident” they were from the black box of the plane that vanished en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur. It led to the deployment of a US mini-sub to scour the sea bed, but despite an extensive air, surface and underwater search, no sign of the jet has been found. Many relatives of those on board, who were mostly from China and Malaysia, have

voiced frustration over the lack of progress and accused Kuala Lumpur yesterday of withholding crucial satellite data. That came after Malaysia released a 47-page summary of communication logs recorded by British satellite operator Inmarsat, information relatives had long demanded. “So much time has passed and nothing has been found, so we doubt that the calculated position of the plane is correct,” said Steve Wang, a spokesman for a support group of the flight’s 153 Chinese passengers. - AFP

■ NIGERIA

Prisoner swap not considered Nigeria’s military chiefs and the president are apparently split over how to free nearly 300 schoolgirls abducted by Islamic extremists, with the military saying use of force endangers the hostages and the president reportedly ruling out a prisoner-hostage swap. The defense chief, Air Marshal Alex Badeh, announced this week that the military has located the girls, but offered no details or a way forward. “We can’t go and kill our Women sing slogans during a demon- girls in the name of trying to stration calling on the government to get them back,” he said. Previous military attempts rescue the kidnapped Nigerian girls.

to free hostages have led to the prisoners being killed by their abductors, including the deaths of two engineers, a Briton and an Italian, in Sokoto in March 2012. A human rights activist close to mediators said a swap of detained extremists for the girls was negotiated a week ago but fell through because President Goodluck Jonathan refused to consider an exchange. The activist spoke ton condition of anonymity because they are not permitted to speak to press. Britain’s Minister for Africa, Mark Simmonds, said two weeks ago that the Nigerian

leader had told him categorically he would not consider a prisoner swap. Community leader Pogu Bitrus of Chibok, the town from which the girls were abducted, says authorities are speaking with “discordant voices” and the president appears under pressure to negotiate. “The pressure is there if his own lieutenants are saying one (thing). Because if they cannot use force, the deduction is that there must be negotiation,” Bitrus said. “And if their commander-in-chief, the president, is saying that he will not negotiate, then they are not on the same page.” - AP

Ukrainian forces have suffered fresh losses in a rebel raid in the separatist east as the newlyelected president promised to hold his first talks with Russia’s Vladimir Putin on easing the crisis. The volunteer National Guard said gunmen had sprung a surprise raid on their barracks in the flashpoint Lugansk region near Russia that had been under effective rebel control since early April. “There have been losses both in the ranks of the military unit and the attacking side,” the National Guard said in a brief statement. - AFP

Beheading sparks rage A Chinese woman who beheaded a kitten and posted pictures online has provoked a wave of fury from tens of thousands of web users, with some calling her “insane”. Li Pingping, a former marketing consultant in Huizhou in the southern province of Guangdong, bought the kitten earlier this month and decapitated it in her bathroom last week, the state-run China Daily newspaper reported yesterday. She then posted photos of the kitten’s body and its severed head on Sina Weibo, a Chinese version of Twitter, setting off outraged reactions. - AFP

Overwhelming victory Former army chief Abdel Fattah alSisi is assured of an overwhelming victory in Egypt’s presidential election, securing 96.2 per cent of the vote with most of the ballots counted. At least 21 million voters chose the retired field marshal, who deposed the elected Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013. The ballots have been counted from 312 of 352 counting stations, state television reported. His victory had never been in doubt with the main Islamist opposition crushed since Morsi’s ousting. Sisi rode on a wave of support for a potential strongman who can restore stability after several years of tumult. - AFP

Dairy payout still good Coen Lammers EDITOR

R

eading the reports around the new Fonterra payout forecast and the latest global auctions, you may get the feeling the wheels are starting to come off the dairy express. The Mid Canterbury and New Zealand economies have experienced a significant boost from the increasing dairy production and the rising global prices. Some experts, however, feel that the dairy prices have peaked and farmers need to start preparing for reduced incomes. This week Fonterra predicted the milk solids price to come down to $7 from its record forecast of $8.40. Even though this is a significant drop from current levels, most farmers will realise that this is still in the top bracket of payouts they have received over the past decade. Only two years ago, the price dropped under $6 and farmers were still doing well. In 2009 the price even dropped below $5, but at the time that was not unexpected as the price had been hovering between $3.34 and $4.37 between 2003 and 2007. Some farmers compared the record $7.59 payout in 2008 to winning Lotto, but with the increasing demand in Asia, that price range is starting to become the new standard. With such prices, it is no surprise that many have been keen to get into the dairy market, converting farms at a high rate and often borrowing heavily to get started. The latest forecasts though are the first signs of caution for those who believe that the gravy train will keep on rolling. Yes, the demands in Asia are unlikely to subside in the near future, but other countries, especially the United States are catching up to grab a slice of New Zealand’s market share. With more competition and increased supply, the world milk prices could stabilise and may even drop some more, but that is still no reason to panic. The Mid Canterbury dairy industry is efficient and competitive and prices are still high, so the sector will continue to underpin the local economy for some years to come.

arm fuzzies! This week I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff Hill. He’s the fella who was beat up in town. The one I did the walk of shame in high heels and miniskirt for. What a lovely bloke. He could not have been any more appreciative of, not only what we did with that fundraiser, but also the support they have received from the community. Jeff has a long slow road ahead of him and will never likely be 100 per cent again. Not that you’d pick that when you talk to him. He comes across as a happy, fully together man, but he gets very fatigued even from half an hour’s worth of chatting. His lovely wife Katie and son Flynn were with him, the latter kept giving me funny looks, as if confused as to why I didn’t have the miniskirt, heels, makeup and wig on. Katie was due with baby number two yesterday. So we had Jeff fighting fatigue and Katie about to give birth, but yet they still found the time to pop in and meet us with a lovely thank you card and a carrot cake to die for. That sums up exactly what this family are like, just wonderful people. My heartfelt best wishes go to them and I hope the universe and justice system provide for the person responsible!

■ CHANGE AT THE TOP

In brief

Icebreaker’s global goals By Holly Ryan Former Air New Zealand chief executive Rob Fyfe says he has been wearing Icebreaker clothing a lot more than his famously colourful business attire during the past 18 months. Fyfe, who is Icebreaker executive chairman, will swap roles with current chief executive Jeremy Moon in a move announced yesterday. Fyfe said the move had been in the pipeline for about six months, after the two sat down and realised they were in the opposite roles to their skill sets. Moon said he was thrilled to have Fyfe take over as chief executive. “[Fyfe’s] proven strengths as a game-changing CEO will align perfectly with the global goals we’ve set forth as we move toward record growth in future years in an increasingly competitive landscape,” Moon said. Fyfe joined the Icebreaker board in

2012, after seven years as Air New Zealand chief executive. He has been executive chairman of the merino clothing manufacturer for nine months. A self-titled outdoor nut, Fyfe said Icebreaker was a good fit, and one he thought was worth swapping the business suits for. “If I look at how I’ve spent the last 18 months, which has been travelling and hiking and doing all sorts of things, I’ve been spending a lot more of my time in Icebreaker gear than I have in traditional business clothes that’s for sure.” Fyfe believed there were similar challenges between the companies, and that the complexity of working with Air New Zealand would help him prepare Icebreaker for what lay ahead as a growing company. “They’re a great success story,” Fyfe said, adding that he was in the company for the long run. He had not discounted the idea of floating Icebreaker on the NZX, depending on how things go. - NZH

Wellington-based Vincent Aviation’s Australian operation has been put in receivership in what the airline says is a bid to shore up its New Zealand business. Vincent ran a fleet of nine leased aircraft and employed 80 people in Australia where it had set up a subsidiary largely to service the mining industry. Chief executive Peter Vincent said the company had spent “millions of dollars” on the operation since 2001 but demand had dropped and attempts to find a buyer had failed. - NZH

Business confidence has declined for the third month in a row, ANZ’s Business Outlook survey has found, though optimists still outnumber pessimists nearly 10 to one. “The question asked is whether business conditions are going to improve,” said ANZ chief economist Cameron Bagrie. “They are pretty darn good now. More people are simply saying this may be as good as it gets and they may well be right.” 54 per cent of respondents consider business conditions will improve over the year ahead and while that is down 17 points from its peak in February it is still incredibly healthy by historical standards, according to Bagrie. - NZH

US consumer confidence rising Markets this week have fared well with the S&P500 in the US reaching an all time high of over 1914 on the back of rising consumer confidence in the world’s largest economy. This rally pulled other markets up as well with all major markets around the world making gains for the week. The Nikkei 225, Japan’s major index, has risen close to 1.5% this week on the back of a weaker Yen, which has helped exporters. May is the first month this year that the Nikkei has been in positive territory. Locally, the NZX50 has been weaker by comparison, up only 0.5 per cent for the week and down overall for the month of May. A blow to investor sentiment was the announcement from Fonterra that there would be a drop in the payout to farmers after a dramatic 23 per cent fall in the GlobalDairyTrade auction since February. The current seasons payout has dropped 25cents to $8.40 and estimates are for next season to drop to $7.00, with some predicting that it could fall as low as $6 per kilo of milk solids. A recent business confidence survey has dropped lower, with only 53.5 per cent of firms optimistic about general business conditions this month, down from 64.8 per cent in April. Unsurprisingly, given Fonterra’s most recent announcement, the agriculture sector was the

most pessimistic. Construction is the most bullish sector, although has still slipped slightly from the previous month. Retail was also well down on the prior month, possibly because of the late start to winter, however, this weeks cold snap may bolster sales significantly. AGMs and results in New Zealand and Australia continued during the week. Key names included Wynyard, Sanford, Mainfreight, Trilogy, Acurity Health, and Tower. The key standout from this group was Mainfreight which delivered a 36 per cent increase in earnings, sending the share price up 8.4 per cent to $14, close to an all-time high. The company reported strong earnings growth was underpinned by broad-based growth across a number of regions. The company believes that Europe will continue to improve and it can see a lot of potential for growth in its other offshore operations. Adding to recent merger and acquisition excitement around the world, Apple confirmed this week that it would be acquiring Beats Electronics for $3 billion. Beats is a headphone and music streaming specialist that was

started by rapper Dr Dre and recording legend Jimmy Iovine. Streaming music is building in popularity with products like Pandora and Spotify, and reducing sales in digital music purchases through products like iTunes, which has dominated in the past decade. Although Apple broke into streaming with the launch of iTunes Radio last September, the service has not been as popular or as lucrative as the company expected and Beats is expected to give this part of Apples business the boost it needs. The other acquisition deal that has dominated headlines again this week is the proposed take over of AstraZeneca, a leading UK pharmaceutical company, by Pfizer, its US counterpart. After having the strong bid rejected last week, Pfizer has decided to discontinue negotiations. Under US takeover law there is now a three month cooling off period, during which Pfizer cannot make another offer, however, AstraZeneca will be able to reopen negotiations which some of its larger share holders are pushing for. If the acquisition ever did go ahead, the company would be the largest pharmaceutical company in the world by a decent margin. Jeremy Flood works for Craigs Investment Partners.

■ SMALL ANIMALS BEWARE

In brief

Google’s self-driving car Google caused a flurry of excitement by unveiling an allnew self-driving car that takes its array of add-on sensors and integrates them into a vehicle that looks like a cross between a Smart car and a Cozy Coupe. Currently being tested around the company’s Californian headquarters, the prototype could offer a whole new paradigm for driving where vehicles are operated by a single push-button and function like an automatic taxi service - not autonomous cars. There’s still a whole load of questions (both legislative and technological) that need to be answered before these sorts of vehicles become anywhere near the norm, but announcements like this mean we’re learning more about what a self-driving car might mean. Here are six things we’ve learned about it today: 1. It can’t avoid killing small animals The sensors that allow the car to avoid pedestrians and cyclists aren’t sensitive enough to avoid smaller animals. It’s unclear exactly what the size threshold is (will a small dog be seen? A kitten?) but Wired reports that squirrels are definitely “too small” and could get “creamed”. There have been no accidents to date though - and Google and working on making the sensors more accurate. 2. It’s got a face for a reason Google says they’re trying to make the car look as friendly as possible and to that end built a “face” into the front of the car. Humans seeing faces in random objects is well-documented (it’s often referred to as facial pareidolia and is all thanks to evolution) but the choice underscores the fact that Google faces a struggle against those

Skype translator This week at Re/Code’s Code Conference, Microsoft announced a real-time, multilingual translation beta called Skype Translate. The service can mediate between two video chatterers who speak different languages by providing text and audio translation after each person finishes speaking. Currently the service works for English and German, but Microsoft says it will support other languages soon. The beta will be released later this year. - NZH

Angels should expand New Zealand angel investors are backing too few start-ups and should broaden their portfolios if they want to improve their chance of a return, according to Angel Association chairman Marcel van den Assum. The success of software companies such as Wellington-based Xero had helped foster an environment where startups can flourish, though local angel investors have been reluctant to expand their portfolios, said van den Assum, who was part of the successful sale of local software firm GreenButton to Microsoft earlier this month. - APNZ

A lighter ride A very early version of Google’s prototype self-driving car.

who are inherently hostile to technology. The promo video for the car underscores exactly the same message: everyone’s happy, everyone’s safe (except the squirrels). 3. No signal on your mobile? No Google-car for you Of course the problem with connected cars is less-thanconnected roads. Ever got spotty signal on your phone on the motorway? Then that’s where your self-driving car might lose access to the detailed maps (created in advance the old fashioned way by Google’s hand-driven cars) that it uses for guidance. There’s no reason information like this can’t come preloaded into self-driving cars, but it would give new meaning to the phrase “going off the edge of the map”.

4. It feels “like a theme park ride” Although Google has released a video showing “normal folks” having a go in the car (above) not many journalists have been given the same opportunity. Kara Swisher and Liz Gannes of tech site Recode were two of the lucky few and they described the car as “a gondola with wheels”, noting that the combination of buttonoperated controls and a little departure message telling them to pick-up their baggage when they left made it feel “a lot like a theme park ride.” 5. Google’s cars will still need a steering wheel Despite the fact that the car is being advertised as having no controls, Google will have to include both pedals and a wheel when they test the vehicles on

California’s streets thanks to the state’s laws. This tension between what a car is and what it isn’t is sure to continue to plague Google. 6. Google will pay the parking tickets So far Google’s self-driving cars have never gotten a parking ticket (and they’ve only been in two accidents - both when humans had taken control) but if they do, it’s apparently Google that will pay up. A safety director for the company said because “the decisions are not being made by the individual” they think that “the ticket should go to the company”. It’s a generous answer, but one that raise more serious questions about responsibility and the law: what happens if someone does get hurt by a Google car, who’s responsible then?

The Marbel Board is an electric skateboard with an app for your phone. The app gives you three predefined ride modes, and full control over top speed and acceleration levels. It also lets you map and share rides, and lock the board so no-one else can ride it. The carbon fibre and kevlar deck helps keep the weight down to around 4.5kg but the lithium ion battery and brushless motor give a top speed of 30km/h and a range of around 16km/h. That’s another one that could help you leave the car at home. - NZH

Virtually unwrapped Among its other collected items the British Museum has eight mummies from Egypt and Sudan. What’s special about these mummies is that they were imaged in high definition via CT scans. The x-ray data allows us to see what’s under the wraps: jewellery, faces, hair, bone problems, even fatty plaques in arteries. The visualisations are part of a current exhibition of the mummies that’s open until late in 2014. - NZH

In brief

Withdrawal ‘no-brainer’ By Jonathan Leask

jonathan.l@theguardian.co.nz

Mid Canterbury no longer have a division one team in Mainland Football. The Mid Canterbury seniors had defaulted consecutive games which was grounds for expulsion from the competition - at Mainland Football’s discretion. Struggling for numbers, Mid Canterbury Football elected to withdraw the team from the competition following a crisis meeting on Monday as the situation had be-

come “untenable” and a third default would have guaranteed their expulsion. “We only had four players that could commit week-in, week-out so it just wasn’t feasible to carry on,” Mid Canterbury district management group chairman Paul Bradford said. “Unfortunately we just don’t have enough players for the senior team at the moment. “It was a no-brainer.” It was a disappointing move for Mid Canterbury Football, and a financially frustrating

one with almost $2000 of nonrefundable fees paid to enter the team, but it will benefit the lower grade teams with the players filtering down into other teams. The move leaves Mid Canterbury Eastern and the Mid Canterbury affiliate Methven FC as the top teams in the district in division four. Tomorrow Eastern are at home to FC Twenty11 Thunder Panthers while Methven, who were promoted from division five earlier this season are away to Universities after

they claimed their first win last week. The Mid Canterbury Masters were on the end of a default last weekend from Western and are away to Parklands United. In their two weeks after being promoted to 18th grade division one Mid Canterbury 18th has been beaten by CBHS and St Bede’s, but will hope to fare better against a club side, FC Twenty11. On Sunday the unbeaten Mid Canterbury women are away to Hornby.

Mid Canterbury looking to go one step better jonathan.l@theguardian.co.nz

The Mid Canterbury men’s hockey team head to Oamaru this weekend looking to win back the Ian Smith Tournament title. They went to Gore last year looking for a hat-trick of titles only to be denied on a countback. The defending champions went through unbeaten but a 1-1 draw with hosts Eastern Southland in the final game had the two sides finish tied on points but not on goal difference, with Southland coming out on top. This year they meet defending champions Eastern Southland first up tomorrow and

College girls go 4-0 Ashburton College Girls 1st XV’s toughest outing to date was still a convincing 49-17 win over Waitaki Girls’ High School in Oamaru on Wednesday night. Chloe Te Moananui scored in the third minute, however, it was followed by a Waitaki try three minutes later - the first time College had conceded first half points this season. A tight battle ensued and after relocating to the secondary field after a St Johns call, College led 17-10 at halftime. College opened the second half with a try and then scored another three in quick succession to put the end result beyond doubt, including the try of the match where Emma Waite ran from inside her own 22 and evaded several defenders to score under the posts. Waitaki scored a late converted try that was answered by Te Moananui going over for her second to seal the 32-point win, their closest result to date.

then South Canterbury, before closing with Central Otago and Southland on Sunday. They again meet the hosts, this time North Otago, in the final game on Monday where they will hopefully reclaim the trophy. Despite a changing cast around a handful of regulars each year Mid Canterbury are unbeaten in the previous three tournaments and according to regular Andrew Moore have “probably only lost one game in the last five years”. If they can keep that record intact they will go a long way to coming out on top, with a few Mid Canterbury senior men’s hockey team from last year. The more goals in the back of the team was unbeaten at the corresponding tournament. net as insurance.

Big climb awaits Roulston’s team All Whites on attack

Ashburton cyclist Hayden Roulston on the road in Europe.

Ashburton cyclist Hayden Roulston was back on the road yesterday as the Trek Classics team contested a long, wet day to kick off the tour of Bavaria. After a long respite from riding, the Trek Factory Racing team got straight back into their work with a 205km first stage that ended in a mass sprint, where all seven riders finished in the main peloton. Roulston was credited with 60th in the general classification. This morning’s second stage should result in significant changes to the GC with a summit finish that includes a maximum gradient of 19 per cent.

Interim coach Neil Emblen has signalled an attacking intent in naming his All Whites side to meet South Africa at Mt Smart Stadium today. Emblen has made two changes from the team which was beaten 4-2 by Japan in March, with Vfb Stuttgart striker Marco Rojas and midfielder Chris James replacing Chris Wood and Kosta Barbarouses. Fresh from scoring a double in the Dutch Cup Final as his PEC Zwolle side took a 5-1 win over AFC Ajax, Ryan Thomas will play the second match of his All Whites career after making a strong start in the senior international arena in Tokyo. - APNZ

Three Ashburton Boxing Club fighters are guaranteed bouts at the South Island Golden Gloves in Timaru this weekend, with a fourth hopeful of stepping in the ring. Christian Tikao, Connor Perriton and Morgan Lumsden are guaranteed at least one bout while Dylan Smart is nominated in the youth heavyweight and is hopeful of a bout. If Tikao can take the open elite title he could have higher representative honour later in the year, when the North-vSouth Golden Gloves take place, with a potential trip to Australia to box for the winners.

Curries crossing China The Currie brothers, Braden and Glen, are busy adventure racing in China with Team NZ Adventure in the Pengzhou Adventure Challenge. On the first of three days team racing on Wednesday they covered a 10km inline skate, 31km mountain bike, 19km run, abseil and a 3km run to sit in third place, 24 minutes behind the leaders Team Thule. Yesterday’s second day included a 14km mountain bike, 8km kayak, 31km mountain bike and a 14km trail run, all in the steep Pengzhou Mountains. It is Coast to Coast champion Braden’s second time racing in China with teammates Jess Simson and Dougal Allan but Glen’s first after missing the event earlier this year after having his appendix removed.

Highlanders chasing maximum points The Highlanders are looking for a bonus point win against a weakened Reds side tonight to keep their Super 15 play-off hopes alive ahead of the June break. After the narrow loss to the Crusaders at home last weekend, the Highlanders are looking to keep pace in the tight race unfolding in the New Zealand Conference. The Crusaders are out in front, but only by one point from the Hurricanes and Highlanders

with the defending champion Chiefs a further point back in fourth with four rounds to play. Highlanders’ coach Jamie Joseph hasn’t got the calculator out yet and is concentrating on one game at a time, starting with the Reds at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane tonight. The Reds are at the bottom of the ladder but the Highlanders won’t fall into the trap of taking them lightly, wanting to take five points before the three week stand down.

The front row has been reshuffled with Mid Canterbury product Chris King moved to the bench replaced by Ma’afu Fia and Liam Coltman returns to the starting hooker position after having a week off for a calf strain. Gareth Evans will start in the number six jersey and Elliot Dixon moves to the bench while the remainder of the team is largely unchanged. The match will also be the last opportunity for live-wire

centre Malaki Fekitoa (right) and fullback Ben Smith to push for a black jersey ahead of the All Blacks test series with England. The All Black squad will be named on Sunday with the first test in Auckland on June 7. The remainder of the Highlanders squad not involved with the All Blacks will disassemble for a week before returning to prepare for the Highlanders v NZ Barbarians game in Invercargill on June 20.

YOUR STARS by Forecasters

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20) With the tailwind from yesterday’s New Moon in your communication sector already speeding things up, home and family get to benefit today. TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21) Where things have been slowly getting better for your communications and especially on the relationship front, they are now on an unstoppable roll. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 22) With Jupiter leaving your income sector in just under 7 week’s time everything you’ve been working towards now gets the hurry up. CANCER (JUNE 22 – JULY 24) Where you have been working your way through all sorts of ups and downs things are not only levelling out, but starting to make a lot more sense. LEO (JULY 24 – AUG 23) When you have less time to call your own you need it most, with a need to put out the ‘do not disturb’ sign to hear yourself think. VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 23) With the Moon still in your career sector after yesterday’s New Moon, keep your professional hat on, trusting your instincts. LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 23) Mercury’s first full day in your career sector allows you to get your head in the game just as things are coming together. SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) Something has shifted. While work, relationship and money matters are still important, there is a sense of adventure in the air. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) There is a chance and a need to seize the moment, confidence and enthusiasm developing on work and relationship fronts. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) With Venus in her first full day in your romantic sector and Mercury in his first full day in your relationship sector your personal life is fighting back. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) Mercury’s return to your work sector yesterday was a game changer, giving you the intellectual savvy to get your head in the game and work smarter. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) You’ve woken to a whole new reality today, even if everything is the same as it was yesterday. What has changed is the filter you view life through.

Celts up for crunch match BY JONATHAN LEASK

JONATHAN.L@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Celtic is focusing on their performance and not the playoff scenarios in the Combined Country Cup rugby competition. Heading to Rangiora to meet Saracens in the ninth and final round, Celtic need to win and score four tries doing so if they are to make the playoffs, but coach Warren Mackenzie is putting more emphasis on how they play. “If we put in a good performance it should take care of it-

self,” Mackenzie said. “You don’t want to fall into the trap of trying too hard and achieving nothing. “Our focus is on improving our performance, as we have been a bit lacking in the last few outings and put ourselves in this position. Now we have to front up and get ourselves out of it.” In section two, Waihora have top spot locked down to enjoy the bye and Lincoln are likely to hold onto second place when they meet West Melton. Third placed Glenmark host

Burnham-Dunsandel who enter the weekend in fourth, but the Celts will be backing Glenmark and hoping they can do the business against Saracens. That business is winning and scoring four tries in the process to overtake Burnham-Dunsandel if they lose, or it could be enough to draw level with Glenmark if they lose, a side they beat earlier in the season, to lay claim to fourth. But as Mackenzie said they are going out to play well and get the win first and foremost.

One thing that has proved costly has been goal kicking, and after several options have been tried, new recruit Alex So’oialo will be given both the kicking duties and the number 10 jersey for the crucial match. Southern are out of the running with only the one win to date, but are hoping to double their tally at home to cellardwellers Ohoka. In section one Rakaia and Methven are both set to feature in the playoffs but, like Celtic, they will chase a bonus point

win with home field advantage in the finals on offer. They are currently tied on 30 points, and as they drew in round one points differential will be the tiebreaker if both achieve their goal of collecting five points. Defending champions Southbridge are in third and host fourth placed Darfield, with Ashley potentially able to clinch fourth with a bonus point win over Kaiapoi if Darfield were to lose by more than seven. Hampstead have the bye.
