WINNING STREAK CONTINUES BY JAIME PITT-MACKAY JAIME.P@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

If the 500 jobs that are reportedly available isn’t enough to lure people to move to the Ashburton District, maybe our Lotto luck could hold the magic ticket. On Wednesday night Ashburton’s second division one winning ticket in seven days was struck, securing the holder a cool $1 million. On Saturday evening, another lucky resident scooped up $500,000 in winnings, along with a punter from Auckland. Wednesday’s winning ticket makes it three first division wins for Ashburton this year, the 35th in total and the most successful year since 2014. The luckiest year for Ashburton was back in 1991, where four first division prizes were won. In terms of value of prizes, 2016 was the luckiest year, with a powerball win of $22.2 million for one couple. Some other big wins for Ashburton include a $14.2 million ticket sold in August 2014. Since 2017, Ashburton has been on par with towns of a similar size in terms of success, despite not having a winning powerball ticket. Taupo, Masterton and Levin have all had four, three and two first division wins respectively. Taupo has been the most successful in terms of value for winners, with a powerball win securing $30 million for the ticket-holder.

About-turn a win for St John By Sue NewmaN

Sue.n@theguardian.co.nz

It’s taken four months, hours of research and plenty of community angst to get back to square one on a request by St John for access to its Tancred Street building across Ashburton District Council-owned land. St John has had informal access across the council’s Burnett Street section for several years but with an extension to its headquarters about to start, the organisation wanted to put that access onto a formal basis. It made a request to the council for a right-of-way to be granted. Councillors said no, believing the right-of-way would compromise the value and future use of the section. Yesterday they did a complete about-turn, revoking the decision they made in July and deciding the right-of-way was the best outcome in what had become a very public debate. When it was first denied the right-of-way, St John suggested it could be interested in buying the land, but before that option could be debated the section’s status needed to be identified. It was found to be reserve land and that made any sale complex – it would have been handled by the Department of Conservation, offered first to Ngai Tahu and if they weren’t interested it would have gone on the open market. That meant the council would have only received 50 per cent of the sale price with the rest going to the Crown and St John would have been forced to pay top dollar for the property. Councillors opted to backtrack

on their earlier decision, voting to grant St John a right-of-way easement for 10 years, with no right of renewal. That term raised questions with councillor Russell Ellis. “Is it long enough to achieve the outcome St John needs?” he said. An email from St John indicated it preferred a longer term because it was investing about

$700,000 in the extension project. Stuart Wilson wanted an assurance that St John did not want to buy the land and that the council could not gift it to them. The whole issue had been confusing and there had been “lobbies here, there and everywhere,” he said. “We’ve been lobbied by people in favour of St John and we’ve also had ratepayers saying St

John is taking a few liberties with the council and they’re pushing us into a corner.” Several councillors were concerned at conditions around the right-of-way would mean St John had to form and maintain a road on the section and that it also had to pay for boundary landscaping.

■ ASHBURTON DISTRICT COUNCIL

Council gives pothole repairs priority BY SUSAN SANDYS

SUSAN.S@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Ashburton District Council management are encouraging Mid Canterbury motorists to use their smartphones in reporting expanding potholes in the district. Service delivery group manager Neil McCann said staff and council contractors were daily surveying weather-related damage to roads following heavy rain this month, and the number of issues were being updated as work repairs continued. “While the weather has caused an increase in potholes throughout our roading network, we are working quickly to identify and repair as soon as possible,” McCann said. He said the council had two teams working on pothole repairs throughout the district, and temporarily making safe areas which required more substantial repair. There were three additional teams undertaking dig out and stabilisation repairs for bigger problems, such as large potholes. Many of the issues were within the council’s scope of safety and planned resurfacing work. McCann encouraged concerned residents to use the council’s Snap Send Solve app. Smartphone users can download the app and simply take a photo of the issue, write a note and send it to the council. The location is automatically identified using the phone’s GPS function.

A nightmare 48 hours on Mid Canterbury roads BY JAIME PITT-MACKAY JAIME.P@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

One person has been killed and another taken to hospital in a critical condition after a nightmare 48 hours on Mid Canterbury roads. A pedestrian was killed just south of Rangitata yesterday morning after an accident involving a truck. The road was closed until around 2pm and diversions were put in place.

“It is a place where we need to be more vigilant at those higher speeds,” he said. On Wednesday evening a person had to be cut out of their vehicle on Pendarves Rakaia road after the vehicle struck a power pole. Ambulance, police and fire emergency attended the scene, and the person was in a serious condition when they were cut from the vehicle just after 7pm.

The Serious Crash Unit is investigating. The accident is the second time this month a pedestrian has been killed on State Highway 1 between Christchurch and Timaru after a woman was killed by a car near the Synlait milk factory north of Rakaia. Police sub-area commander Phil Dean said a big majority of our serious and fatal accidents come on our 100km/h roads.

Address

With a spate of crashes in the district this week including two on Monday, one involving a truck and car, and another involving a car hitting a power pole, Police are pushing the safety messages once again. Dean said the culture around restraints, impairment, distractions and speed are still incredibly dangerous. “Police have been saying this for such a long time and there are

so many people out there who are measuring their safety by their chances of getting caught,” he said. Earlier in the week Rakaia Fire Chief Tyrone Burrowes echoed the safety messages, saying people needed to be aware of following distances, ensuring their vehicles are safe and roadworthy and securing loose items in a vehicle that could cause damage in an accident.

In brief Record pokie spend Records were set for all the wrong reasons in the Ashburton District during the September quarter. The amount of money poured into gaming machines over those three months was a record for the quarter – $1.647 million, up about $200,000 on the average spend for July, August and September. Across the district there are 13 venues with gaming machines, seven in Ashburton and five in Hinds, Methven and Rakaia. Those venues have a total of 134 machines. Gaming machine data is collected by the Department of Internal Affairs.

Santa busts gender A newly installed gender-busting Santa Claus is on display at Auckland’s Ponsonby Central. Dressed in fish-net stockings, holding a bag and umbrella, this jolly statue pushes the stereotype of the traditional male Santa Claus. The team at Ponsonby Central and Blunt umbrellas created the Mary Poppins-themed St Nick in a tongue-in-cheek response to Simon Bridges’ claim that, “Just as Mary Poppins is a woman, Santa Claus is a man.” The creators said the new “Mary Poppins Santa” is set to put a fresh perspective on the gender diversity conversation. - NZME Hannah Fox cosmetic tattoo artist.

■ WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE EXHIBITION

Celebrating being women By Sue NewmaN

Sue.n@theguardian.co.nz

To mark the 125th year milestone since the day women first entered a polling booth and voted in a general election, a group of Ashburton women celebrated by recognising their own milestones in the business world. Building on her original suffrage project where she photographed local women who were breaking new ground in their choice of career, Emmily Harmer said she also wanted to recognise the district’s successful business women.

She put out a call to the district’s women in business Facebook network, hoping 20 women would respond. Harmer was overwhelmed by the response. “I wanted 20, ended up with 44 and I had to turn a lot of people away,” she said. Unlike the original project that took many hours to complete, this project was more of a quick fire, pop-up shop effort, she said. The results, however, were stunning. At Thursday night’s unveiling, Harmer admitted she was nerv-

ous, but as the business women found their photos, she said she was relieved to hear virtually every one liked what they saw. The exhibition covers a wide range of ages and careers, from women in professions to those working in small businesses from home. “This is about showing the diversity of women in business and it’s about marking this significant date in history for women today,” Harmer said. “Women today still face a lot of discrimination and stereotypes and a lot of these women are out

there, doing it, under the radar.” For some of the women, taking part in a photo shoot was quite daunting but Harmer said she was delighted with the way they’d entered into the spirit of the event. “I’m really proud of you all, but now I’m the nervous one as I open up the doors and show you your photos,” she said. Running alongside the exhibition was a petition developed by Ashburton Intermediate School students calling for women to receive the same pay rates as men in all workplaces in New Zealand.

‘I want a second chance’ Karel Sroubek wants to be given a chance to start over again. Sroubek, a Czech citizen who was granted residency despite having gang affiliations and serving a prison sentence for smuggling MDMA, told Newshub if he was deported it would be a death sentence. “There is no safety for me in Europe, I can’t travel under my name anywhere,” he said. “All I want is to be given one more chance.” - NZME

Cop caught on phone Dunedin police have been left highly disappointed by the actions of motorists in the city – including one of their own. Over the past two days police have been carrying out checkpoint operations at three intersections in the central city focusing on motorists not wearing seat belts and using their cellphones while driving. Included in the 45 drivers caught using their cellphones while driving was one police officer. - NZME

Scouts spread some early Christmas cheer Ashburton scouts were spreading some early Christmas cheer on a visit to Rosebank resthome earlier this week. In uniform, they put on their best singing voices to entertain residents with Christmas carols before mingling with the residents around the room to share Christmas crackers. While some of the youngsters already had their Christmas trees up at home, Rosebank will bring out their tree and decorations next week.

■ NZ POST CLOSURES

Falloon goes in to bat for Ashburton’s postal service BY SUE NEWMAN

SUE.N@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Rangitata MP Andrew Falloon is calling on NZ Post to give a cast iron guarantee that over-thecounter postal services will continue in Ashburton. He says the company will be required to front up to Parliament over its plans to close 79 branches, including Ashburton. A NZ Post spokesperson confirmed yesterday that Ashburton’s East Street post branch

would close and that negotiations were under way with a business that would become a post agency. No date has been given for the closure. As long as there was no clear partner on board and as long as there were no guarantees around the longevity of the postal service, there would be a lot of uncertainty for people in Ashburton, Falloon said. He’s pushing to get answers

around NZ Post’s long-term future in Ashburton, On Thursday in Parliament with colleague Melissa Lee, he successfully pushed for NZ Post to front up to the Parliamentary committee that he sits on, the Economic Development, Science and Innovation Select Committee. “We need to know how long these arrangements will be in place and what services they’ll be required to provide.

“This year NZ Post have been withdrawing all services from many communities around the country. “They need to guarantee that won’t happen here, and that the provider they partner with will offer the same services as the existing Post Office.” Questions needed to be answered and guarantees given that Mid Canterbury would not suffer a further loss of services, Falloon said.

Tuesday’s meeting of the Ashburton Water Zone Committee was the last for committee member Gordon Guthrie. Guthrie had been on the committee since it formed in 2010 and was part of some groundbreaking work with the Canterbury Water Management Strategy and local Ashburton zone group. “It’s been an interesting and enjoyable journey,” he said. Guthrie described some of the committee’s early meetings as challenging as the committee, which is made up of diverse community representatives, went about their work and identified problems that needed to be addressed. “The farming community as a whole I believe has really moved a long way and value their social licence to farm. They have jumped on board environmental issues.” Guthrie said a highlight of his eight years was working with the Hinds Drains Working Party, farmers and experts who were working together to make good decisions about water quality and quantity in their special area. He said “a negative” was not achieving a more integrated approach with irrigation schemes working together to deliver water. “I do think this district is allocated sufficient water to be successful. We just don’t use it wisely enough.” Committee chairman Bill Thomas said Guthrie’s input over the years had been valuable and appreciated.

T’anks for the top-up West Auckland locals have been blown away after an army tank rolled through the main street of Kumeu on Tuesday night. Local man Dyan Weerdenburg was fuelling up in Kumeu when he looked to his left and saw a giant tank sitting at one of the pumps at the local Z station. He told the Herald locals were stopping to get photos and take the time to talk to the driver. “I was just on my way back from work heading through Kumeu and I pulled into the Z station around 7pm,” Weerdenburg said. “It was already sitting there at the pump and there were a few people standing around getting photos. “The driver was outside chatting with some people. I was only there for about a minute before he jumped in and pulled out across the road and kept head-

ing out towards Muriwai beach direction. “When he pulled up I thought what the hell was going on?” Kiwis quickly flocked to social media to poke fun at the bizarre sight captured in Kumeu. One person joked saying: “Taking advantage of the AA 12c discount. ‘Do you want to use that today or accumulate?’” “The $150 max limit is going to be annoying,” another wrote. “The war on petrol prices is real!” The vehicle is believed to be a FV433 SPG Field artillery tank. Tanks are legally allowed to drive on New Zealand roads, but rubber must be attached to the tracks to stop the tank chewing up the road and the gun needs to be disabled. Even if the gun is disabled, the vehicle owner must hold a firearms licence.

Crackdown prompts 10,000 WOF rechecks The NZ Transport Agency has begun contacting about 10,000 Kiwis, whose cars may not have been properly checked during their regular Warrant of Fitness inspection. Law firm Meredith Connell is reviewing the cases involving cars that may not have been checked properly and managing partner Steve Haszard says owners will be able to have their vehicles “re-checked free of charge via a Transport Agency voucher”. He said Meredith Connell had completed a review examining the “most urgent” cases. “Significant progress has been made and reviews completed of the most urgent files where public safety was potentially at risk,” he said. “We have provided recommendations to the Transport Agency. On the basis of these recommendations and following legal pro-

cesses the Transport Agency is stepping up enforcement action for non-compliance across all regulatory areas for which it has responsibility.” While the public should notice increased action from the Transport Agency in the coming weeks, the process would still take time because it was “legally bound to follow due process”. “For example, in some complex cases further investigation is required to meet evidentiary requirements or there are legal processes under way which need to run their course,” Haszard said. The news thousands of Kiwis may have been issued Warrants of Fitness without having their cars properly checked has led to strong criticism of the NZTA and its ability to oversee the vehicle safety checks. Car passenger William Ball

died in January after a frayed seatbelt failed in a vehicle given a Warrant of Fitness by a Dargaville company. The NZTA admitted knowing since 2011 that Dargaville Diesel Specialists was failing to carry out critical WOF checks but, in line with its approach at the time, was more educator than enforcer. The owners of nearly 2000 vehicles that received warrants from the company were given offers to have them rechecked. Transport Minister Phil Twyford announced in October that Law firm Meredith Connell had been brought in by the NZTA board to review 850 open compliance files and taken over its compliance function because it had failed to carry out its regulatory responsibilities to the standard he expected. - NZME

Serial pooper outed An Auckland dog owner says he is paying back the pillows his dog has pooped on during his secret visits to neighbouring houses. Jack has apparently been defecating on neighbours’ pillows for about two years but his owner, Rick Didham, has only just had the courage to out his own dog as the serial pooper. “I just feel so embarrassed and ashamed,” he said. Didham was convinced his property was fully fenced off and didn’t understand how Jack could escape from the backyard until he found a small hole in the fence. It turns out, Jack had been using it as an escape route for a while. “Apparently he has been caught by more than one of our neighbours sneaking in their cat door and doing number twos on people’s bedroom pillows,” he wrote on the Beach Haven and Birkdale local Facebook group. “We don’t know why he is doing this, but if you see him, please be nice to him as if you’re mean he comes back and does it again,” he warned neighbours.

“So if there has been an incident in your bedroom please pm me and we’ll look into getting your pillow case replaced if we can.” The post, from Monday, has received dozens of comments from neighbours who found Jack’s antics mostly hilarious. “And I blamed my wife a few months ago ... thanks Jack,” someone joked. “He’s just leaving little gifts for the neighbours. He is getting in early for Christmas,” someone else said. Didham says he is convinced Jack has some kind of mental health issue, possibly PTSD from the conditions he lived in when he was rescued from a puppy mill. “I’m not a dog expert but I think he has psychotic tendencies, he looks sorry but I think he’s just waiting to do it again,” the dog owner said. “I felt so embarrassed,” he said, adding that his local Facebook group has been incredibly helpful, suggesting theories for what the problem might be and even recommending behavioural specialists to help train Jack. - NZME

Pilots left in the dark Boeing’s latest airliners lack a common override feature that, in some dangerous circumstances, allows pilots to reliably pull planes out of nose dives and avert crashes such as last month’s fatal plunge by Lion Air Flight 610, aeronautics experts and pilot groups say. The state-of-the-art 737 MAX 8 airplanes do not have this feature, yet the company failed to prominently warn pilots of the change even as airlines worldwide began taking delivery of the new jets last year, pilots say. “We were completely in the dark,” said Dennis Tajer, a 737 pilot and spokesman for the Allied Pilots Association, representing American Airlines pilots. Questions surrounding the crash have turned a harsh spotlight on Boeing’s latest update to its workhorse 737 line, the world’s most popular commercial airliner. Boeing’s stock is down nearly 12 per cent since the October 29 crash, even after a slight uptick yesterday amid a broad market upswing. Revelations about the doomed Lion Air flight, released yesterday in a preliminary report by Indonesian investigators, also exacerbated long-standing debates over what degree of automation is safest for airplanes – and how human pilots should be able to take full control. “Automation is there to make us safer and more productive in the cockpit,” said Jon Weaks, president of the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association, a

Handmaids sequel coming New York Margaret Atwood is writing a sequel to her best-selling dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale that is set to be published next year. The 79-year-old Canadian author tweeted that the book, titled The Testaments, will be set 15 years after the final scene of the original novel from 1985. Three female characters will narrate the new story, which is inspired by questions readers have asked about the inner workings of the fictional Gilead state, as well as “the world we’ve been living in,” Atwood said.

A crane moves a pair of wheels recovered from the jet that crashed into the Java Sea. union representing pilots at Southwest Airlines. “But that never replaces the overriding commandment that the pilot has to fly the airplane and know what the aircraft is doing.” The 737 MAX is the fastestselling plane in Boeing history, with almost 4700 planes sold or on order. The investigative report chronicles the chaotic moments aboard Flight 610 before it hit the waters off the coast of Java last month, killing all 189 passengers and crew on board.

That end came after a battle between its flight crew and a computerised control system that repeatedly tilted the plane downward because of a malfunctioning sensor, according to the report. Correcting the path of the plane would have required a multistep process, something that pilots and other aeronautics experts said may have been difficult to remember and execute during a life-threatening emergency. Members of the Lion Air flight crew repeatedly at-

tempted to manually arrest the plane’s dive, but the system reasserted itself each time. The crew lost control of the jet, which struck the water at 450 miles per hour, the report found. “What they were focused on was keeping the airplane in the air,” said Clint R. Balog, a pilot and aeronautics expert at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. “That’s always your first priority. You troubleshoot problems only after you’ve got the aircraft safe.” - PA

Happiness begins at ... When Joely Richardson turned 50, she vowed: “This is going to be the happiest time of my life.” The actress pauses for a moment, eyes wide, defiant. Then she smiles, embarrassed by her solemnity. “Honestly, though, I do feel that as English people we get nervous saying: ‘I want to be happy’. But the thing is, I’ve done sadness and I will do sadness again. So right now I just choose to get as much joy out of life as I can.”

Prison inmates run dating site scam Five inmates in the Carolinas extorted more than half a million dollars from military personnel throughout the country, using illegal cellphones to pose as underage women on dating sites. Standing in front of a state prison in Columbia, South Carolina, US Attorney Sherri Lydon told reporters that five inmates had been indicted on federal charges including extortion and wire fraud. Ten others throughout the Carolinas have been charged with helping inmates collect extortion payments via services including Western Union or PayPal. According to court documents, inmates used contraband phones to join dating websites, contacting and exchanging nude images with service members across the country. Once the targets had been

reeled in, Drew Goodridge of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service said, inmates then posed as some sort of authority figure, like perhpas a father or police officer, claiming the girl with whom the victim had been communicating was underage and demanding money to keep the exchanges private. Fearful that they’d be accused of disseminating child pornography, possibly losing their military careers, more than 442 service mem-

bers handed over more than $560,000, authorities said. Lydon said the victims come from all branches and ranks of the military. According to Goodridge, more than 250 other cases were being investigated for potential extortion as part of “Operation Surprise Party,” which his agency began in January 2017. “This operation will continue until we break the back of these criminal networks,” he said.

Inmates aren’t allowed to have cellphones behind bars, although thousands are smuggled inside each year. Corrections Director Bryan Stirling has long called illegally obtained cellphones the No. 1 security threat inside his institutions, as they allow inmates the unmonitored ability to communicate and potentially continue their criminal endeavours. Officials have said a deadly riot earlier this year at Lee Correctional Institution was in part a turf war over contraband including cellphones. “We do not lock up criminals only to have them go to prison and continue on with their their criminal conduct,” Lydon said. “It is the unfettered use of contraband cellphones that allows inmates to continue harming the citizens of South Carolina.” - PA

Tate a crowd-pleaser “This ain’t television, love, I can hear you.” It was early in the first stop of her New Zealand tour that Catherine Tate had to remind one bold heckler that this is a live show. It was also one of the finest examples of the British comedian’s winning combination of quick wit, unflappable commitment and willingness to tear her audience to shreds that will make The Catherine Tate Show Live a national success. When promoting the tour, Tate said she doubted there would be a demand down under for her live show, that’s been running since 2016. The packed crowd at the Bruce Mason Centre proved her wrong; the audience hung onto every word, laughing at every joke while waiting desperately for more.

The experts might disagree on the benefits of coffee (it’s good for you/ it’s not good for you) but Kiwis have embraced the coffee culture in our own way … usually with plenty of the milk that we produce in our own backyard. If you’re thinking about buying a coffee machine for home, it pays to do your homework before you hit the store, where you’ll be confronted with an overwhelming range of machines. You’ll find the reasonably-priced and easy-to-use nespresso capsule machines for around $299 as well as an assortment of manual and automatic machines where you get to be your own barista, grinding beans and tamping like a pro. Maybe. The high end, fully automatic machines, like the DeLonghi Prima Donna come at around the cost of a small, well-used car but it is the bomb with a big variety of coffee and milk recipes, easy programming and six user profiles for individually tailored drinks. Plus it has a new thermal carafe with double wall to keep milk hotter for longer. However, the majority of people who come into Smith and Church’s Ashburton store looking for a coffee machine leave with a capsule machine – these machines use hermetically sealed pods of coffee. You drop a capsule in the top, pull a lever and push a switch. The machine pierces the capsule and forces hot water through to make an espresso … in about 20 seconds. They’re convenient to use and easy to clean, and really popular, says sales

expert Jacky Thomson. “Most people come and buy a machine and they get a selection of coffee pods to help them work out which flavour they like. You get a book

with details about how it all works and how to order more pods. Most people join a coffee club.” The cost per pod works out around $1.10 but the sealed capsules can keep

the coffee fresh for up to nine months. A downside of these convenient pods of ground coffee is the packaging, which are commonly thrown in the rubbish bin and end up in landfill. Increasingly though, manufacturers are pointing out ways these capsules can be collected and recycled appropriately. Some pods can be bought at the supermarket and others easily online with quick delivery. At least one coffee club asks customers to return their pods in a supplied courier bag for special recycling. Whichever machine you decide on, love it by looking after it with a regular descaling. Meantime, go in search of your favourite flavour fix!

A serious driving experience W

hen thinking about adding a more urbane large SUV to the lineup to accompany the existing Trailblazer tough truck, Holden

thought big. The result is the addition of the madein-Tennessee Acadia to its range, and the contrast between what the Americans might consider a “medium-sized crossover for soccer mums” with Holden’s other rugged seven-seat Colorado ute-based large SUV is a stark one. Acadia is smooth in its ride and delivery, petrol-powered, and appears to possess only enough ground clearance to clamber over the average roadside curb. Any sticker hinting of off-road prowess placed on the back window of the Acadia will possibly cause the huntin’ and fishin’ fraternity to soil their undercrackers with laughter. However, if your adventures are more comfort- and convenience-focused, Acadia packs plenty of potential to be a sweet n’ spacious ride to the bach, cafe, school ball, skifield or the office. It’s also arguably the most technically advanced vehicle yet to wear the leonine Holden badge. The Acadia mixes a ZB Commodoresourced V6 engine and nine-speed automatic gearbox with the rest of the adaptive-4wd powertrain (available on three models) taken from the other Buick SUV in Holden showrooms – Equinox. If that sounds like a parts bin special,

rest assured that it gels together well, and delivers a driving experience that is just as refined as that of a V6 Commodore. If you haven’t driven a ZB, you should — it’s one of the most resolved sedan/wagon ranges on the market. So this is more than an SUV; it’s also an alternative to what was once Australia’s favourite car. Acadia’s lead development engineer, Tony Metaxas, hails his new baby as a “new

flagship family car for Holden”. Acadia comes in six forms – three allwheel drive and three front-wheel drive. There’s three specification grades – LT, LTZ, and LTZ-V – and you can buy the frontdrive version of the LT straight off the floor, while front-drive versions of the LTZ and LTZ-V are available to special order only. It’s the pricing that’ll instantly grab the attention of those selling the Mazda CX-9, Toyota Highlander and Hyundai Santa Fe.

That front-drive LT fires a handy first shot at those competitors with its $49,990 sticker. By the time you get the $71,990 LTZ-V AWD model at the top of the Acadia range, Holden NZ will have fired a six-gun salvo across the bows of the large SUV segment. The alpha Acadia model is more than ten grand cheaper than the top Santa Fe, and competes dollar-for-dollar with the Highlander Limited.

Top gong for red rocket

F

errari’s latest mid-engined Special Series V8, the 488 Pista, has been nominated Supercar of the Year by BBC Top Gear Magazine. This brings Ferrari’s tally of BBC TopGear Awards to 16, and complements the 488 GTB which won the same Supercar of the Year award in 2016. When deciding on the Ferrari 488 Pista as the Supercar of the Year, the editors at BBC TopGear were overwhelmingly impressed by the 488 Pista’s playfulness and the ease with which Ferrari’s control systems

allowed the driver to enjoy the full 710hp available from the car’s award-winning twin-turbo V8: “The Pista is a natural-born performer, a fourwheeled peacock wearing white and blue war paint, constantly wanting to be under the spotlight while creating a plume of smoke out of its arches from disintegrated rubber.” The Ferrari 488 Pista’ s 3.9 litre twin-turbo V8 delivers 710hp and was nominated the best engine in the world in the 2018 International Engine of the Year Awards – for the third year running.

A visual birthday treat Bernard Egan MOTORING

F

or me at this time of year some of the lyrics from Simon and Garfunkel’s song The Boxer often come to mind. The words “Now the years are rolling by me, they are rockin’ evenly. I am older than I once was and younger than I’ll be” resonated with me again last Friday and maybe with our motoring sub-editor Steve as well. That’s because we both had a birthday on that day. I’ve had a few more birthdays than Steve. Thanks to family and friends I had a great day, filled with activities which were quite special and I really appreciated all the kind messages received, many via social media. I’m probably not alone in looking back and thinking of things which happened on previous birthdays. Naturally I don’t recall really early ones, nor of course the day I was born in Rakaia, although I do remember Rita my mother saying she only just made it to the cottage hospital in one piece, because I was apparently quite keen to arrive, so to speak, in and have a look at mum and dad’s Buick. Maybe a portent of things to come – an interest in cars. Sometime later mum and dad sold the Buick, the next owner being the late Sir Wilson Whineray. The Buick, which has been beautifully restored, now resides in Australia, owned by members of a local family who now live over the ditch. As far as I can recall cars didn’t feature particularly on any other birthdays until several years later, in fact 50 years ago to the day last Friday, when I took delivery of my first car. A delightful little vale green 1962 Morris Minor 1000 which for some reason acquired the name Mervie. The reason for that name has been lost in the mists of time. Speaking of names, mum and dad had decided if a son joined them and big sister Judith he would be named Anthony. But I arrived on Uncle Bernard’s birthday so was named after him, which is an honour because he was a very good and generous gentleman. His numerous acts of kindness are still remembered by many people, especially in Wellington, more than 30 years after he passed away. Mervie, which was sold new by Drummond and Etheridge, had two previous owners – the Small and Scott families. I still know some of those family members and I often see sisters Alison Cox and Sheryn Saunders, who were the next two owners. Mervie is often mentioned in conversations with Alison and Sheryn. We’ve lost track of Mervie but he’s not forgotten and when I told Tony Adams about this anniversary his response referred to many adventures in Mervie. There certainly were some adventures, and we’ll leave it at that. Well, except to say one memorable adventure – or actually misadventure – which happened 49 years ago involved Roger and Rowena Hart.

A remarkable picture of crash test dummies ready to go to work.

Mervie the Morris Minor has many stories to tell, but some will remain unreported.

We really will leave it at that now! Little did we know all these years later Roger and I would each be contributing motoring stories to this newspaper, but that’s probably one we won’t report. As well as appreciating the messages, I’m also very grateful for gifts received, all of which are fantastic, and they included a copy of The Car Book. This book, chosen by Brett Partel and given to me by him, Rose Acton-Adams and their daughter Lily, is exactly what it claims to be – a definitive visual history. Beginning with the first automobiles up to 1920, it then continues in chapters dedicated to succeeding decades up to the present. It’s chocker full of amazing photos and illustrations, not just of cars, but of other topical subjects accompanied with plenty of explanations. Many of the pictures bring back fond memories. The Car Book is going to take a bit of reading, which of course is something to look forward to; so far there has only been time for a quick glance and even so it’s hard to put down. My fellow Guardian motoring team members, Roger and Steve, have also had a quick browse and, like me, they think this is an awesome book and will prove to be a gift which will keep on giving. It goes to show great minds think alike. Well it shows two great minds think alike and I agree with them. I said to Steve I just had to write about this book – actually my words were more like when I received the book I immediately felt a story coming on. He had only just said he understood,

Quintessentially the Sixties – Twiggy in a Mini.

when being the perceptive person he is he noticed something interesting which he wants investigated – so already a second story is coming on. More will be revealed later. The publishers of The Car Book say it traces the rip-roaring story of the automobile in stunning visual detail, with more than 1200 cars, along with famous marques and the men behind them. It’s a very accurate description. Classic Car magazine suggests the book is the gift for car lovers of any age. Santa if you’re reading this – which you probably are because we know at the North Pole you regularly log in to guardianonline – it may pay to get some copies in stock, because we think you’ll get requests. Well, we’re older than we once were but younger – hopefully much younger – than we’ll be.

There’s only one Exorcist A nxious GM fans waiting on New Zealand’s first batch of right-hand drive Camaros won’t have to wait much longer, with new versions of the American classic starting to get spotted around the country. With the cork now out of the bottle and the country’s Camaro cherry on the verge of being popped, the aftermarket packages are set to join the fray. No aftermarket package is more in demand right now than the bonkers, nuts, totally mad 1000bhp (745kW) Camaro Exorcist, by Hennessey Performance. And, one is coming to New Zealand. One. Just one. Revealed in 2017, the Exorcist is the answer to the Dodge Demon (Exorcist ... Demon ... see what they’ve done there?). Based on the already potent Camaro ZL1, it combines the standard LT4 6.2-litre V8 with a 2.9-litre high-flow supercharger system, ported cylinder heads, and an incredibly long list of other changes big and small under the bonnet. Upgraded valve springs, intercooler, headers, retainers, intake and exhaust valves, lifters, and pushrods all included. The net result is a whopping 350hp (260kW) more power than standard. The 0–100km/h sprint takes less than three seconds, the quarter mile less than 10 seconds, and top speed is tested to brush 350km/h. Not bad for a big ol’ Camaro, eh? Just 100 Exorcists are being made by the

tuning firm, with just three of them set to come to Australasia – two to our mates in Australia and one to the thirsty Kiwis in Godzone. Each vehicle comes backed with a twoyear, 40,000km Hennessey warranty, too.

The next topic inevitably is pricing, and as you’d expect the figure isn’t exactly charitable. The cost of the upgrade is $105,890, fitted, and not including the donor vehicle. 2017–’18 generation Camaro ZL1s can be had second hand on the New

Zealand market for between $100,000 and $130,000 – making the outright cost of the vehicle $200,000+. That’s a lot, but remember that we’re talking about a limited-run car with only 100 examples on the planet.

otorcycle Live 2018 saw 103,702 bike fans enjoy nine days of actionpacked, interactive twowheeled entertainment, during a show that has been hailed a success by exhibitors and visitors alike. The event in Birmingham was packed with brand-new metal from over 40 of the world’s leading manufacturers. Much of the 2019 machinery on display had been launched just one week previously at EICMA in Milan, while Kawasaki, Norton and CCM chose Motorcycle Live to unveil never-seen-before 2019 models to the bike-mad crowd. The brand-new Moto-Cirque arena debuted with an ultra-spectacular live stunt show which combined FMX, street bikes, BMX and dance – all taking place in total darkness aside from meticulouslyco-ordinated LED lights and lasers, all set

to an awesome soundtrack. “What a show, we’ve had an amazing week”, said CEO of Norton Motorcycles, Stuart Garner. “We’ve had the biggest footfall we’ve ever seen on the stand, so a huge thank you to the organisers for making it happen. It’s been a record show for Norton and we hope everyone has enjoyed it as much as we have.” “We have broken the European record in terms of sales at shows, so Motorcycle Live has been really successful,” said Peter Riley, managing director of Airvest Ltd/Helite UK. “That is obviously fantastic, but what has been the real joy about this year’s show is the people that have visited the stand to tell us how our product has saved their life. “It’s moments like that that make coming to the show absolutely worthwhile.”

First time on track

M

cLaren Automotive has confirmed that the 720S GT3 will be making its public debut at the Bahrain GT Festival today ahead of its maiden competitive appearance at this December’s Gulf 12 Hours in Abu Dhabi. Both outings follow an extensive development programme for the new model. The 720S GT3 is the first car designed and built by McLaren Automotive’s inhouse motorsport department. Ahead of initial deliveries to customer teams for the upcoming 2019 season, the new car will run at the Pure McLaren customer event to be held at the Bahrain International Circuit before making its dynamic public debut during the Bahrain GT Festival.

The car will be demonstrated on track, and will form a central attraction on display in the paddock during the event, which incorporates the inaugural FIA GT Nations Cup and SRO GT4 International Cup. Following this appearance, the 720S GT3 then faces its most demanding challenge to date at the Gulf 12 Hours event on December 13-15. One example, entered by the in-house McLaren motorsport team, is set to line up on the grid at the Yas Marina circuit, home of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The racing environment will provide the team with valuable real-world data on the 720S GT3, which is currently undergoing a rigorous and demanding test programme. The new machine will be pitched

All-New Santa Fe

against one of the most competitive grids for what is fast becoming one of the most fiercely contested fixtures on the global GT calendar. In anticipation of the McLaren 720S GT3’s public and competitive debuts, the car’s development programme progresses on to the next stage this month, as the team relocates to the Middle East for further track running. This latest stage in the development programme will see the 720S GT3 continue to be tested extensively ahead of homologation for the 2019 season. The all-new McLaren Super Series GT3 challenger, designed and built by the inhouse McLaren motorsport department, has already covered thousands of track kilometres at a wide variety of circuits around Europe.

“We’re looking forward to demonstrating the 720S GT3 at the Bahrain GT Festival, and really thrilled to be competing in the Gulf 12 Hours, which will end an exciting year for the motorsport team. “The 720S GT3 is the first race car designed and built by McLaren Automotive and the development team has worked tirelessly to deliver the gruelling test programme we devised for the car. “We’re sure we’ll have plenty to learn during the race, and we’ll continue with testing after the event. “This is an important product for McLaren Automotive, and therefore we have committed to ensuring that our customers receive a product worthy of carrying the iconic brand,” said Dan Walmsley, McLaren Automotive, Director of Motorsport.

Did you know this colourful display is Om? Hamish Allott took this photo of the Indian Cultural Garden in the Ashburton Domain recently. The marigold hot pak orange flowers are arranged to form the Om symbol, while the yellow marigold hot pak form the background and a verbena tuscany blue border completes the picture. According to Wikipedia, Om is a sacred sound and a spiritual symbol in Hinduism, that signifies the essence of the ultimate reality, consciousness or Atman. It is a syllable that is chanted either independently or before a mantra in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.

Local Lotto wins above the odds

W

e’ve got mountains and we’ve got lakes, there’s also the wide-stretching plains, friendly people and our own local legend in Goldberg – but at the moment, nothing comes close to a pulling point to our district than our luck when it comes to winning it big with Lotto. Wednesday night marked another lucky night for the Ashburton District with a $1 million windfall for one of our own. That is the second time in a week that someone has claimed a major prize from our part of New Zealand.

Realistically though, the magic powers of Mid Canterbury are no different to anywhere else – we just seem to be lucky when it comes to Lotto success. Although, if anyone knows how to get in on the luck could they please let me know! Sadly, there is no magic recipe.

It is just purely luck and good fortune that has fallen on those who have won. As much as you’d like to think there’s a theory or some sort of algorithm to increase the chance of success, there isn’t – which yes, I know, it sucks – but it wouldn’t be so much fun if everyone won, wouldn’t it? For most of us the prospect of winning a life-changing amount of money is only ever going to be a pipe dream, but you can’t help but feel happy for those who are lucky enough to get a taste of what it feels like. Twice a week hundreds of thousands of Kiwis line up to play

the game and twice a week a huge majority of those are left feeling a little disappointed when the numbers don’t fall their way. But as is the case in anything there must be winners, which also means there must be losers. It doesn’t stop people from heading back for more at the next draw. For a district with a population of around 35,000 people, that we have enjoyed so much success is quite remarkable. To put it into perspective, for every person here who buys a ticket, there’s 46 people in Auckland doing the same based on population.

Nationally, there’s 136 people buying a ticket for every one purchased within our boundaries. So, the odds aren’t really in our favour. Yet we seem to have as much success as some of the big centres. And let’s hope it continues. There’s nothing better than knowing that someone who lives and walks on the same piece of turf as you is going to be doing a little bit better than normal because of a windfall. It takes a bit to get past the envy to see that sometimes, but it is great.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Friday, November 30, the 334th day of 2018. There are 31 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On Nov. 30, 1874, British statesman Sir Winston Churchill was born at Blenheim Palace. On this date: In 1782, the United States and Britain signed preliminary peace articles in Paris for ending the Revolutionary War; the Treaty of Paris was signed in Sept. 1783. In 1835, Samuel Langhorne Clemens — better known as Mark Twain — was born in Florida, Missouri. In 1900, Irish writer Oscar Wilde died in Paris at age 46. In 1939, the Winter War began as Soviet troops invaded Finland. (The conflict ended the following March with a Soviet victory.) In 1949, The Labour government, led by Peter Fraser, was defeated by Sidney Holland’s National Party after 14 years in office. The result heralded a long period of National dominance, with the party holding power for 29 of the next 35 years. In 1960, the last DeSoto was built by Chrysler, which had decided to retire the brand after 32 years. In 1966, the former British colony of Barbados became independent. In 1981, the United States and the Soviet Union opened negotiations in Geneva aimed at reducing nuclear weapons in Europe. In 1982, the Michael Jackson album Thriller was released by Epic Records. The motion picture Gandhi, starring Ben Kingsley as the Indian nationalist leader, had its world premiere in New Delhi. In 1993, President Bill Clinton signed the Brady Bill, which required a five-day waiting period for handgun purchases and background checks of prospective buyers. IIn 2004, Jeopardy! fans saw Ken Jennings end his 74-game winning streak as he lost to real estate agent Nancy Zerg. Ten years ago: Space shuttle Endeavour returned to Earth after a nearly 16-day mission

Watch out for the Bananas in Pyjamas in tomorrow’s Santa Parade, you may be surprised as to who is lurking in the B1 suit.

Busy much! I

t’s a busy time of the year for everyone. Us radio folk are no exception. We have plenty on at this time of the year. I have managed to extricate myself from MC duties at tonight’s Light up the Night at Baring Square. I am going to tackle the White Ribbon quiz, as a competitor, not behind the microphone. Peter Mac and Carol Johns or Carol Christmas as we call her will be looking after proceedings tonight. Tomorrow I will be donning the Bananas in Pyjamas outfit again and looking after all the Fairies and Elves on the Santa Float. To be totally honest, I don’t look forward to this at all, but once you’re there and doing it and you see the joy it brings to the kids in the crowd it makes it all worthwhile. I also enjoy dishing out a few Banana hugs to unsuspecting

poor fella nearly passed out! The forecast looks perfect for an overweight radio announcer inside a B1 outfit tomorrow, cloudy and 18 degrees. I can’t help wishing I was in the crowd with Manda and Maddy. At two weeks short of two years old, I reckon Maddy will love the parade. It would be cool to be there and see her reaction to it all. I wonder how she would react to a Banana hug? As all parents know, with two years, it’s either black or white, there is no grey. She would either, find the experience of being smothered by a giant banana really cool or incredibly scary and fire the toys right out of the cot. I’m not Nostradamus, but I would predict the latter is very likely. It’s amazing to think we were very close to losing the parade completely, until Carol Christmas came to the rescue and saved it.

people I know in the crowd. This is a highlight for Fungi Clark who has been on the receiving end of these, for many years now. I’m not sure who Carol Christmas has lined up to be B2 this year as Manda will be busy with Maddy in the crowd watching. I doubt very much it will be Mathew the trolley collector from Countdown. He had a crack inside the suit a couple of years ago. He’s not the best walker and struggled with the hike up and down East Street. That and the heat!

■ TRADE ME

New auction site bidder By Chris Keall Trade Me users are well aware a bidding war can drive a price through the roof – now that could be about to happen for the company itself. On November 22, Trade Me’s board revealed it had an offer on the table from UK outfit Apax Partners. Now US private equity player Hellman & Friedman is said to be actively considering a bid. Hellman has previously invested in similar companies, and has recently raised a $US15b fund. Its dealmakers are said to have been recently in NZ. Analysts were split after Apax placed its preliminary bid of $6.40 a share for Trade Me, valuing the ASX/NZX-listed company at $2.54b. Craigs Investment deputy head of institutional research Stephen Ridgewell said $6.40 represented a high offer – 25 per cent above Trade Me’s pre-offer close, and a 26 per cent premium on the company’s average post IPO for-

ward price/earnings ratio. But Devon Funds Management chief investment officer Mark Brown said he saw room for some sweetening, given Trade Me’s market power as an incumbent and because it’s attractive as “enormously cash generative and has very little debt”. And he says that beyond the

Fine for Michael Hill Retailer Michael Hill New Zealand has been fined $169,000 in the Wellington District Court yesterday following a Commerce Commission investigation. The investigation was centred around the jeweller failing to comply with the extended warranty disclosure requirements of the Fair Trading Act. Michael Hill admitted 12 charges that it’s Professional Care Plan failed to comply with the requirements between May 31, 2017 and May 30, 2018. Judge DRW Barry said in sentencing the conduct was a significant set of failing and not a minor oversight by Michael Hill. - NZME

REI backs Tindall The Real Estate Institute has backed Warehouse founder Sir Stephen Tindall’s interest in KiwiBuild, indicating that if anyone can bring down house prices in this country, it’s him. Bindi Norwell, REINZ chief executive, welcomed Tindall’s announcement that he was assisting one of the 102 off-site manufacturing KiwiBuild tender parties and said it was potentially great for the sector. House prices rose 67 per cent in the last 10 years making it extremely difficult for people to buy, she said. - NZME

potential bidding war between rival private equity players Apax and Hellman, it’s possible that a trade buyer like Alibaba could place a bid. The Chinese giant “has bought players in other parts of the world rather than start from scratch. You could see someone in the industry making that play,” he says.

Trade Me investors have not been entirely convinced. Shares have jumped from $5.10 to a recent $6.09 since the Apax bid was was made public, but are still shy of its $6.40 indicative offer (Apax is currently carrying out due diligence and won’t make its final, binding offer until December 12). Brown doesn’t doesn’t want to speculate how high bidding for Trade Me could go, but thinks it will be a good result for shareholders – if not so much for the NZX or the country. “In some respects, it’s sad because we’re losing another excellent New Zealand business off the bourse. It’s bittersweet. We’re getting an excellent outcome for our investors but the long-term outcome for capital markets in New Zealand is not good.” The company was founded by Sam Morgan in 1999. Morgan sold it to Fairfax in 2006 for $700m. The Australian publisher, in turn, floated Trade Me in late 2011 at a $1.07b valuation. - NZME

Business confidence still negative T here were a number of key events this week which could set the tone for the rest of the year. Two important Federal Reserve speeches took place midweek, while the crucial trade meeting between Donald Trump and Xi Jinping will happen at the G20 summit in Argentina. US markets rebounded on Monday, led by shares of retailers, with shoppers spending billions of dollars online and in stores over the Thanksgiving weekend. Shares of Amazon gained after the company reported its biggest ever shopping day on Cyber Monday. Come Wednesday, US indices soared even higher after Federal Reserve Chairman, Jerome Powell, said interest rates are close to neutral. This was in stark contrast to comments made early in October, when he said the Fed’s benchmark rate was a “long way” from neutral. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 went on to post their biggest daily gains in eight months, while the Nasdaq saw its largest advance in just over a month. However, the Fed cautioned that trade tensions, Brexit and troubled emerging markets remain risks to elevated asset prices. A highlight on the local calendar this week was the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Financial Stability Report. The bank said financial system risks have eased, but remain high, and that mortgage credit growth and house price inflation

have eased to more sustainable rates. But the part that grabbed headlines was the easing of homelending restrictions to both owner occupiers and investors, to come into effect at the start of next year. The New Zealand dollar rose slightly in response. Business confidence in New Zealand remained unchanged in November, and still languishes deep in negative territory, with net 37.1 per cent of respondents negative on the outlook. The Own Activity Outlook improved slightly to +7.6, compared with +7.4 last month. In corporate news, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare announced a record first-half net profit, benefiting from a weaker New Zealand dollar, as well as strong demand for their medical devices. Net profit rose 20 per cent for the half, putting the company on track to achieve at least $1bn in annual revenue for the first time in its history. However, the company remains in a legal battle as it contests a patent infringement case in the US, brought by Australia’s ResMed. Ryman Healthcare’s interim result saw he company post a 14 per cent rise in underlying profit. The company said it was

on track for another year of increased underlying profit as strong demand at new villages offset cost and a fading housing tailwind. The company also announced the purchase of its ninth village site in Victoria. Ryman shares are down more than 20 per cent since August. Off the main index it was another troubling week for Metro Performance Glass. New Zealand’s biggest glass processor saw shares tumble 24.5 per cent on Monday following its interim result. The company downgraded its full year profit expectations citing challenges in its Australian business. It also said it won’t pay an interim dividend. Last week, Metro Performance Glass shares plunged 36.9 per cent after management signalled a competitor of similar size would be entering the New Zealand market mid-2020. Evolve Education slumped 25 per cent to 30 cents on Wednesday after the company wrote $32.1m off the value of its child activity centres. Net profit, excluding one-off items, fell to $4.6m compared with $7m in the prior corresponding period.

In brief

■ WANGANUI

Thurlows enjoying Glory Days Waverley farmer and part-time horse trainer Bill Thurlow thinks Glory Days might be the best horse he’s trained. The six-year-old Red Giant mare earned favouritism for tomorrow’s Listed Wanganui Cup (2040m), with a hat-trick of wins culminating in a home town victory in the Waverley Cup (2200m) last start. “We haven’t raced a huge amount of horses because we sell a lot of the young ones, she’s still got to go and do it but at this stage I’d say potentially she’s the best we’ve had,” Thurlow said. “We’ve had a couple of other handy stayers, Referred ran second in the New Zealand Oaks (Gr.1, 2400m) and Yours won eight races and ran fourth in a New Zealand Cup (Gr.3, 3200m), but he wasn’t quite top-class.” Glory Days is on a path towards the Gr.3 City of Auckland Cup (2400m) at Ellerslie on New Year’s Day and after weighing up his options Thurlow has opted to use tomorrow’s race as her leadin rather than the Gr.3 Skycity Hamilton Waikato Cup (2400m) on December 15. “She’s a horse that doesn’t need a lot of work and she’s better with her races spaced, so I would be happier to give her three weeks between runs after this run,” he said. “There’s no lead-up race going the Ellerslie way around at all, so going to Waikato wouldn’t make a difference because we would be going the same way around as here.”

Glory Days will likely be favourite for the Listed Wanganui Cup. Glory Days has been patiently handled by Thurlow, she had her first start as a four-year-old and has only raced 18 times since, for eight wins and six placings. “She’s a mare that’s taken a long time to mature,” Thurlow said. “There’s not a lot of her and in her younger days she probably wasn’t 100 per cent right mentally either. “She did a good job earlier on over 1400m and a mile and we’ve always been mindful of her wanting to get over ground but she just wasn’t strong enough.

“We let her develop and tell us when she was ready to go further and she was sort of telling us that after her second start this season. “She’s a bit quirky, every time you get on her back she wants to go and do it and there’s no half measures so we have to be a bit careful of that or she will over-do herself. “She just sort of keeps herself fit, she’s not too hard to train to be honest.” Glory Days is one of 12 horses in training at the Thurlow family’s Stainley Park which they operate

alongside their farming business. “Only three of them are at racing stage and the rest of them are young unraced horses,” said Thurlow, who pinhooked three-time Group One winner Gingernuts. “There’s a couple for clients that we won’t be trading but with our own horses we race what’s left if we don’t sell them, that’s what we have to do really to pay the bills. “Two-thirds of our business is still farming. “We’ve got a dairy farm which I have some guys on and we run a couple of sheep and beef grazing blocks and the home block. “Once we’ve finished the horses in the morning we have breakfast and then head out to the farm, but it still takes up a lot of our time.” Glory Days is raced by Bill’s brother Grant, his wife Patricia, and his neighbours and fellow farmers Brent and Sue McAree. “Grant used to be a farmer but he’s into kiwifruit now and living the life at The Mount (Maunganui), while we’re out on the farm doing all the work,” Thurlow said. “He had bought a couple of horses and had a bad run for a number of years, everything he put his hands on was no good. “I was talking to Gloria Kenny one day and she said I’ve got three in the paddock here if you’re interested in leasing them and I took two of them and they’ve since exercised their right of purchase on her and they’re very happy.” - NZME

■ NEW STUD CAREER

Lazarus generating plenty of attention Expectations are high ahead of Lazarus beginning his stud career in North America. The recently-retired New Zealand stallion is undergoing regulation vet tests ahead of him standing his first season at stud at Deo Volente Farms in New Jersey. Deo Volente Farms chief executive officer, Mike Gulotta, said there was an air of excitement at the stud ahead of Lazarus’ arrival. “We are extremely excited. “I think he is going to do very well. I think he will be a super star in the breeding shed.” Once cleared, the Bettor’s Delight-Bethany entire will wait out the North American winter before beginning his breeding career with a stud fee of $US10,000 in February. Lazarus had a rollercoasterlike race career in North America. He hit big heights with wins in the Dan Patch and the Hoosier Pacing Derby. His ultimate low came when he dropped out of McWicked’s Breeders Crown before it was revealed he had a lung infection. Gulotta believes Lazarus has

Lazarus is about to begin a highly-anticipated stud career. done enough to win the respect of North American breeders. “He came here to race under fairly challenging conditions; it was his winter and our summer and he did pretty well. “I think you can’t help but respect him, he won two major stake races here. “He was parked every step of the way and ran 1.46.6 under less

than ideal conditions for him. “So, yes, I think he has gained quite a bit of respect, you can’t help but respect the horse.” Gulotta is expecting that respect to result in strong stud interest in Lazarus. North American lifetime services are being advertised for sale with a $50,000 price tag and eager breeders have already

started purchasing them. “Based on share sales to date, I fully expect the horse to have a full book. “We are limited to 140 mares here in the US. “I would be surprised if he wasn’t at that number. “I think he is going to be well received.” Lazarus has been priced at the upper-middle end of the stud market. His fee is well below that of boom rookie sire Captaintreacherous, who is standing for $US25,000. Emerging sire Sweet Lou stand in North America for $US12,500. Where Lazarus will stand at stud in the Southern Hemisphere and at what stud fee are unknown. Australasian studs have largely stayed tight-lipped on the matter. Lazarus would not be expected to fly back to the Southern Hemisphere for his stud duties until August. That should give Australasian stables plenty of time to fight out the rights to secure his services. - NZHN

Further Inca charges Police have filed 13 further charges against various people arrested as a result of Operation Inca, a yearlong investigation in to race-fixing in the harness racing industry. As well as that, one new person, understood to be employed within the industry, was also charged. All 13 charges related to the fixing of races. “Police have laid a further 12 charges against current defendants, all in relation to match fixing,” Detective Inspector Stu Mills told The Informant. “As well as that, one charge has been placed on a new defendant. That person is known in the industry. “The defendants will now appear next Wednesday, December 6th, in the Christchurch District Court.” Mills said further charges were possible.

Thefixer out of Cup New Zealand Cup hero Thefixer is out of the Auckland Cup. And he will be joined on the sidelines for the December 31 classic by Ultimate Machete as the pair are instead aimed at Australian races in the New Year. Trainer Mark Purdon will not enter the high-profile pair for different reasons. While he is happy with their condition he thinks the Cup is too soon for Thefixer. “He had that time off to get his body over the New Zealand Cup win and we don’t want to rush him back,” said Purdon, who is reluctant to start Ultimate Machete in standing start events. - NRNZ

Petrabella impresses Pukekohe trainers Moira and Kieran Murdoch unearthed a promising three-year-old filly at Avondale yesterday when Petrabella scored an impressive debut win in the Westbrook ‘Crackling Rose’ 2017. Sporting the silks of prominent owners Brendon and Jo Lindsay, the home-bred daughter of Pierro came from just off the speed in the hands of Leith Innes to chase down Massachusetts. - NZME

Debut win for Peard Byerley Park trainer Allan Peard believes he has another handy filly on his hands after One Kotukustreet’s debut win in the AJC On Facebook 1200 at Avondale. The three-year-old daughter of Ego was pushed forward by jockey Sam Spratt to take the early lead. The duo were able to dictate terms throughout with One Kotukustreet distancing her rivals. - NZME

Taking on Zoustyle Boomsara will be kept to his own age group rather than tackle open company at Doomben even though it means taking on the high profile Zoustyle. Trainer Chris Munce had entered Boomsara in tomorrow’s Group Three George Moore Stakes as well as the Winning Rupert Plate, both over 1200 metres. He decided to keep Boomsara in the Rupert in which the unbeaten Tony Gollan-trained Zoustyle is the short-priced favourite. - AAP

Knight tees off again

Dream over for NZ U17s

By Erin TaskEr

The New Zealand women’s under-17 side’s dream run at the FIFA World Cup is over. Leon Bernie’s side have been defeated 2-0 by Spain in their semi-final clash in Montevideo yesterday. Goals on either side of halftime by Pina and Irene booked Spain a spot in the final where they will face either Mexico or Canada. New Zealand will now play in Sunday’s Bronze Final against the loser of the second semi-final. The under-17 side were the first New Zealand team across any FIFA World Cup competition to reach the final four after beating Japan in the quarter-finals. “We knew today was going to be challenging and we knew it was going to be tough. “The first half especially, man we took it to them,” Bernie said. “There was long periods of that game where we had them camped in their half and we hit the cross bar. “And then they went down the other end, had a missed shot and then we switched off. They got that first goal which was an absolute killer if I’m honest. “So proud of them. “You look out at there today and they tried everything until the final whistle. It’s been a fantastic tournament. “We’ve come over here, made it out of the group play for the first time and then got into the semis for the first time. It’s an amazing moment in our country for football. “They’ll be disappointed tonight but we’ll refocus and we’ve got that playoff game. If we win that, that’s another special moment.” As expected due to their possession-based style, Spain enjoyed much of the ball but New Zealand pressed forward at every opportunity and actually had the better of the sights on goal. They enjoyed a good spell of pressure around the 15-minute mark before Kelli Brown tried her luck from distance but was a long way out and her looping effort dropped just wide of the top corner. Despite all their possession, Spain were struggling to create anything going forward, thanks largely to several vital interventions from New Zealand’s inspirational captain Aneka Mittendorff. It wasn’t until the 34th minute that Spain came anywhere near to a goal themselves, captain Clàudia Pina glancing an effort off the base of the upright. But the same player would soon be responsible for giving them the lead when a cross broke to her in the box and she smashed it past Leat to put Spain in front. The highly-accomplished Spaniards weren’t about to let a place in the final slip through their grasp and extended their lead soon after the restart in stunning fashion. A loose ball dropped to Irene López outside the box and she unleashed an unstoppable volley that fizzed in for one of the goals of the tournament. - NZME

Catherine Knight is set to make a golfing comeback. Three years after deciding to end her representative golfing days, she’s set to play an integral role in the Aorangi women’s golf team for the Toro Women’s Interprovincial Golf Tournament in Christchurch next week. The Ashburton Golf Club member is the sole Mid Canterbury golfer in the side and will join with South Canterbury’s Ginny Bolderston (Geraldine), Angela Gerken (Timaru), Lynda Brown (Timaru), Jess Shearer (Fairlie), and Kathryn Baker (Gleniti) to form the Aorangi team. The players have their sights set on bettering their eighth placing from the 2015 event, and they’ve got the talent to do it. Knight is no stranger to top level golf, having spent seven years as a professional, before returning to her roots in Ashburton 10 years ago. At the end of the 2015 Toro Interprovincial that was held at the Ashburton Golf Club, she made the decision to retire from representative golf. She’d gained six wins out of seven matches in the number one position and helped the Aorangi team to their best finish since the 1990s. “Struggling with the frustration of losing distance off the tee with the driver, and inaccurate iron shots, I decided it was time to hang up the spikes,” Knight said. “But after discovering the extra length off the tee again in 2018, the desire to represent Aorangi has brought me back to top level golf.” While working fulltime as a storeperson at ANZCO Foods, Knight has been able to put time and effort into what is required at that level, and is looking forward to next week’s tournament. The Toro interprovincial tournament is being played at Christchurch’s Waitakiri Golf Club, and Knight isn’t the only one in the Aorangi team who knows how to make it at a high level. Gerken is one of the newer additions to the team, but is a former Southland representative, and Knight she’s a big asset to the team. Gerken is now living in Timaru. The tournament is set to get under way on Tuesday, with Aorangi’s first opposition being Otago, followed by the defending champions Auckland, while day two on Wednesday will see them take on North Harbour and Northland. On day three they are set to face Tasman and Hawke’s Bay. Knight said the Aorangi side is setting its sights on strong performances against Otago, Northland, Tasman and Hawke’s Bay.

Blyde launches attack on ‘unfair’ coverage World Rugby’s women’s sevens player of the year Michaela Blyde is lamenting the lack of television coverage for the World Series. The Black Ferns started their second tournament of the HSBC Sevens Series in Dubai last night, but it will not be televised in full in New Zealand. The first day of the two-day tournament will be broadcast

on the World Rugby Sevens Facebook page and the finals will be broadcast on Sky Sport 1. Blyde says she and her teammates love performing for their families and their country, but when their games were not televised as they deserved to be, it could be hard for people in New Zealand to support them. “We definitely do encourage a

lot of people to support us, obviously it’s so much more difficult when we never play back at home in New Zealand, and not very often we are actually on TV, unlike the men who are always on TV, which is totally unfair,” Blyde said. “We really try and push our family and friends to make an effort to watch us. We like perform-

ing for our families and we enjoy performing for our country so we really want to get all the support that we can and hopefully more people can watch us live.” She said the Black Ferns deserved full TV coverage of their matches and the only way she believed to push for it was to keep proving that women’s rugby had so much to offer. - NZME

Horn has also come in under the weight, recording 70.55kg at the official weigh-in. Both fighters have to come in under 75kgs two hours before Friday’s bout but Mundine, who pushed his opponent during a brief scuffle after the weigh-in, expects he’ll achieve that mark easily. - AAP

Top tennis on our courts By Erin TaskEr

Erin.t@thEguardian.co.nz

Some of Canterbury’s top tennis players will be in action in Ashburton this weekend when the Christchurch premier grade competition stops off in town. It’s the second season in a row that Christchurch’s premier grade has made the trip to the Ashburton Trust Tennis Centre to play a round, but this year it’s just the men coming due to the women’s first round already being finished. Mid Canterbury Tennis president Neil McCann said it would again be a great opportunity to see some of the best tennis play-

ers in Canterbury in action and it was hoped people would head along to check it out. He said last season’s first visit to Ashburton by the Christchurch premier grade was a huge success, so the decision had been made to do it again. “All of the players said it was great and they all enjoyed it, and they don’t generally play in the same venue, the guys and the girls, so it was a great social occasion,” McCann said. Usually their Saturday competition involved teams heading to various clubs around Christchurch, so playing all together at the one venue – the 16 courts at

the Ashburton Trust Tennis Centre – had been a novelty. McCann said it was hoped the round in Ashburton would become an annual occurrence. Just who would turn out for each of the clubs on Saturday probably wouldn’t be known until they turned up on the day, but two Ashburton players were playing in the Christchurch premier men’s grade competition this season – Flynn Ness and James Watt. Watt – who attended Timaru Boys’ High School – won the 2017 Otago Open, and was due to compete in last weekend’s Canterbury Open but had to

withdraw due to illness. Canterbury’s top player and tennis coach James Meredith was not likely to make the trip to Ashburton, but former Ashburton coach Remi Feneon was a likely starter, a week after finishing runner-up in the Canterbury Open. The Christchurch premier grade competition will get under way at 1.30pm at the Ashburton Trust Tennis Centre tomorrow, with Mid Canterbury’s A grade competition moving to the earlier than usual time of 11am to accommodate the visitors. Mid Canterbury’s junior interclub competition will start at 9am.

Golden State head coach Steve Kerr says Steph Curry will return to action tomorrow when the Warriors face the Detroit Pistons in Detroit. The Warriors have been without their All-Star point guard since he suffered a groin injury during a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on November 8. The Warriors have gone 5-5 in Curry’s absence. In 12 games this season, Curry is averaging 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game while shooting 51.5 per cent from the floor. - AAP

■ RUGBY LEAGUE

In brief

‘Premiership suicide’ By Daniel Gilhooly Graham Lowe says the Warriors will pay a heavy price for letting Shaun Johnson go, believing they were to blame for never extracting the best out of the star halfback. Former Kiwis coach Lowe was incredulous that the club’s prized asset has departed and says it is “premiership suicide” given the status Johnson held, along with his latent ability. The Warriors had failed to get the best out of a player who boasted enormous talent in his 2011 NRL debut season, Lowe said. “I compare Shaun Johnson to a Ferrari that’s been sitting in a garage for eight years, and it’s never been taken for a drive,” Lowe told AAP. “The Warriors have never found the right button and it’s a great shame the fans haven’t seen the best from him.” Lowe saw the writing on the wall for Johnson last September when the Warriors were eliminated from the finals by Penrith. In a sub-par team performance, Johnson’s quiet game was singled out for widespread criticism. “I felt sorry for Shaun because the media really kicked him, it was full on and the club didn’t say a thing to defend their player. It was piss-weak management.”

Lowe said he doesn’t know Johnson personally so can’t comment on reports the playmaker wasn’t a diligent trainer and sometimes lacked a hard-nosed attitude. But he was a huge admirer of his onfield deeds, borne out in historic Warriors results. With Johnson on the park, the Kiwi club won 47 per cent of their games (76 from 162). When he was missing, that figure dropped to 23 per cent (5 from 22). Johnson, he said, had developed into a different type of player, lacking the electricity of his early seasons but boasting a wider range of skills and physically capable of holding his own. Lowe said the whole Johnson affair was an indictment on the club, who he reckoned had blundered earlier by releasing backup option Mason Lino to the Newcastle Knights. It left the Warriors scrambling for a halfback at short notice and Lowe doesn’t think they’ll get near anyone with Johnson’s quality. “Who’s out there? I think it’s premiership suicide,” he said. “They were probably not going to win the thing anyway but they’ve lost their best player, by a long way. “Who’s going to win them matches now?” - AAP

St George Illawarra skipper Gareth Widdop has failed to put speculation about his future to bed, falling short of guaranteeing he will see out his NRL contract. Widdop is signed with the Dragons until the end of 2021 but was on Wednesday forced to deny he was seeking an immediate release to finish his career in the Super League. After stating he would remain in Wollongong for 2019, he was careful with his words when asked whether he was committed for the next three seasons. “I’m here for this year. I’m committed to the Dragons, I’m contracted until 2021. That’s where I’m at at the moment.” - AAP

Warriors target Brown The Warriors are believed to be targeting Parramatta young gun Dylan Brown as a potential longterm replacement for Shaun Johnson. Brown is yet to play first grade but the New Zealand-born 18-yearold former Australian Schoolboys halfback is one of the Eels brightest prospects and considered an NRL star in the making. The teenage No. 7 is contracted to the Eels until the end of next season but it’s believed the Warriors are keen on securing his services for 2020 and beyond. - NZME

A fitting farewell Ex-Warrior Shaun Johnson.

Storm can continue on winning ways By Melissa WooDs

Offer ends Nov. 30th

Widdop future uncertain

Cameron Munster feels the future is bright at the Melbourne Storm with or without skipper Cameron Smith. Signing a four-year extension with the NRL powerhouse that ties him to the club until 2023, star playmaker Munster believes Smith won’t be far behind him inking a fresh deal. He says the Storm and Smith are close to finalising terms and they will do the deal when the captain returns from an overseas family holiday. Regardless, Munster feels the next wave of players coming through will ensure the Storm continue their run of success which has included appearances in the last three grand finals. He admitted it was a big transition after losing Cooper Cronk to the Sydney Roosters at the end of 2017 and now Billy Slater but had confidence in the youth in the squad. “I’m really excited for the new crop of players coming through – we’ve got some good young talent coming into the team,” Munster said on Thursday. “We’ve got (Scott) Drinkwater, Ryan Papenhuyzen, some good young halves as well. “It will be a big hole for us but I’m confident with the roster we’ve got.” Munster said given he would be 29 when his contract expired he hoped he could call himself a one-club player, signing at least one more deal with Melbourne to see out his NRL career. “It would be nice to be a one-club man but it’s a business so if you’re not performing well clubs will let you go,” he said. “The Storm have put their faith in me for the next five years so I need to repay that and play some good footy to stay as a one-club man.” - AAP

Wyatt Crockett is set for one final international swansong when he captains the Barbarians against the Pumas at Twickenham this weekend. After 71 tests for the All Blacks, Crockett announced his international retirement in February but now gets the chance to bow out from this level at one of rugby’s greatest arenas. Such is his selflessness, Crockett always puts the team first but he will no doubt enjoy the chance to run out one final time at Twickenham, scene of the All Blacks’ triumph at the 2015 World Cup. - NZME

Big offer for Read A French rugby team has reportedly offered All Blacks skipper Kieran Read a $2 million a year deal following the Rugby World Cup. French publication Midi Olympique is reporting that Racing 92, the former team of Dan Carter, has offered Read a €1.2 million ($NZ2m) a season deal. Read told the Herald earlier this month that he will bring down the curtain on his long and illustrious All Blacks career at the World Cup in Japan next year. Read, who turned 33 last month, is almost certain he’ll be taking up an overseas contract. What he has not sorted out yet is where he will be going. - NZME

White not a starter Rugby Australia has resisted Jake White’s offer as a gun for hire and ruled out making a play for South Africa’s World Cup-winning coach to take charge of the Wallabies. RA boss Raelene Castle had agreed to a telephone hook-up with White following an approach from the former Springboks and Brumbies mentor. But that hook-up has been cancelled. White’s offer is believed to have come after the seasonending 37-18 loss to England at Twickenham on Sunday, a defeat that prompted further calls for besieged coach Michael Cheika to be axed. - AAP

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19): Thoughtless people need your tolerance. Think of this as a test. If you fail it, cut yourself a break. It only means that your coping resources are already a bit stretched. Compassion starts with self-compassion. TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20): There’s much to be gained by suspending disbelief long enough to, say, get immersed in the world of a movie or understand the finer points of an argument you do not agree with. GEMINI (May 21-Jun 21): You have the strength, guts and initiative to do things your way, which flies in the face of convention and is sure to evoke bewilderment from most onlookers. In time, bewilderment will turn to admiration. CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 22): Endings do not have to be failures; they don’t even have to be losses. Things end because it’s time for them to. Then the graceful thing is to acknowledge the crowd with a bow and get off the stage. LEO (Jul 23-Aug 22): Remember when you thought you needed a Frappuccino but really needed an apple? Or you thought you needed a cookie and what you really needed was a support system? Today you know exactly what you need. VIRGO (Aug 23-Sep 22): Groups have personalities. No single person in the group is responsible for the entire personality of the group, but everyone contributes. Pay attention to tone of the group on the whole. Is it for you? LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 23): Some feelings are hard to name – combo platters of emotion with spice levels of varying intensity. Try to put words to it, if only for your own edification. The words will make the feelings more palatable. SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 21): Anyone can click with someone who shares interests and general worldviews. It takes a superstar to find ways to connect with people when such things are not readily apparent. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): Relationships are worth it no matter how short they turn out to be, no matter how lucrative the arrangement is, or how frustrating or thrilling. You’re better for it. That’s the takeaway. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19): Get the right tools for the job, even if it costs more or pushes back your start time. You’ll go in with higher enthusiasm and morale and avoid much frustration throughout the life of the project. AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): The same location can represent “vacation and freedom” to one person and “work and obligation” to another. When you’re there because you want to be there, it’s an entirely different place. PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20): Here’s an approach that might be liberating because decision-making gets easier; instead of right or wrong, good or terrible, think of things as “for me” or “not for me”.

TARGET: TOP FIVE

Mid Canterbury’s sevens players aren’t worried where they finish in tomorrow’s South Island zone sevens tournament in Timaru, so long as they finish high enough to qualify for the nationals. The top five men’s teams from the tournament at Alpine Energy Stadium will qualify to go to the nationals in Tauranga next month, and with only six teams having entered this year it means just one team will miss out. Mid Canterbury Rugby Union chief executive Ian Patterson, in charge of this year’s side, said Mid Canterbury are determined not to be the team that misses out, but they know it’s going to be tough.

North Otago not playing this year, and Buller pulling out at the last minute, has meant that instead of teams being split into pools and finals being played at the end of the day, this year’s tournament will see all teams play each other. That means five games in a day, and unfortunately the two games that Mid Canterbury stand probably the highest chance of taking out, are the final two of the day against South Canterbury and Southland. “It puts a lot of stress on the fitness levels of the team and it means that maybe we have to balance our efforts a bit … obviously we have to target a couple of games,” Patterson said.

“It’s a war of attrition.” Mid Canterbury will play Tasman at 10am, before taking on Otago at midday, and then Canterbury at 2pm. They’ll then face South Canterbury at 3.40pm and finish up against Southland at 5.10pm. As the only two Heartland Championship sides in the tournament, Mid Canterbury and South Canterbury are probably expected to be the teams battling it out for that fifth spot, along with the lower ranked of the top tier teams, Southland. “Both of us (Mid Canterbury and South Canterbury) are capable of beating Southland, and clearly we showed last year we can pull something out of the bag and

beat the big boys,” Patterson said. Last year, Mid Canterbury tipped up Canterbury in pool play, but the green and golds still only just snuck into the nationals as the fifth qualifier. If they can beat a more fancied opposition it will go a way to getting them that spot at nationals, but they’ll still need to target a win against either South Canterbury or Southland. Patterson said playing the big union teams in their first three games isn’t an ideal start. “You can burn up so much petrol having a loss to the big boys that when it gets to the games you need to win, you don’t have a lot of petrol left,” Patterson said. Patterson said it doesn’t matter

if Mid Canterbury finish as top qualifiers, or as the fifth qualifiers, so long as they qualify for nationals, they’ll be happy. Just who will take to the field for Mid Canterbury tomorrow will be known today, after the 14-player squad is whittled down to 12 – including two loan players from Canterbury – to head to the tournament. Mid Canterbury’s 14-man squad: Atu Takubu (Southern), Cam Butler (Celtic), Charlie Suyker (Methven), Isireli Masiwini (Celtic), Jale Masi (Canterbury), Joel Leo (Celtic), Jovilisi Talaqa (Canterbury), Milsy Tahuri-Stevens (Collegiate), Osea Baisagale (Methven), Ricus Van Zeyl (Celtic), Sairusi Turuva (Methven), Seta Koroitamana (Rakaia), Timoci Nabakeke (Rakaia), Tololima Savaiinaea (Celtic).
