Five things that may interest you

Wiggle happy to be a Cockroach again Anthony Field is happy to Wiggle out of his skivvy and become a Cockroach again. Field, alongside brothers John and Paul and former Wiggle Jeff Fatt, are re-forming their energetic band the Cockroaches after 25 years. Field’s youngest fans probably don’t know that Field and Fatt were rockers before they became children’s entertainers. “The Cockroaches were a great party band in the ‘80s and early ‘90s,” Field says. “If you went out on a Friday or Saturday night, mainly in Sydney, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and all up the coast, you’d go see the Cockies because you were guaranteed a great party time.” The desire from diehard Cockroaches fans for a reunion has started to appear on social media.





Counting down to the Guardian’s 135th birthday we are looking back at papers from the past

Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has been cast as an incarcerated white supremacist in hit US TV biker drama Sons of Anarchy. The goth godfather will appear in multiple episodes of the show’s upcoming seventh season. “Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s, so I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema,” Manson said in a statement. “Now all I need is a motorcycle.” Manson’s past TV credits include Eastbound and Down and Californication.

We frequently hear complaints from struggling ratepayers, but it appears meeting payments was not a problem in 1910, according to this account published on May 31: At last evening’s meeting of the Borough Council a member asked a question regarding outstanding rates. The Mayor was pleased to say that for the last seven years ... the sum of £3 ($6) would cover the whole amount lost.

A happy wee weed fairy A woman who calls herself the “Weed Fairy” distributed free nuggets of marijuana to people in Seattle over the weekend, taping the free pot on fliers around a city neighbourhood. The woman, 23-year-old Yeni Sleidi, says she does it to amuse people and to give them a break from everyday stress. She said 50 fliers had nuggets taped to them. “People mostly laughed,” Sleidi said this week. The woman said she first came up with the idea in New York, where it drew plenty of media coverage. The fliers posted in Seattle came with the message: “These are tough times. Take this weed.” Sleidi posted her free marijuana in Capitol Hill, a Seattle neighbourhood known for its nightlife and counterculture. Washington and Colorado in 2012 were the first two US states to legalise recreational marijuana. Sleidi said it was the first time she felt comfortable with attaching her name to her deeds.


Warnie’s new squeeze? Shane Warne has been spotted snuggling up to model and DJ Emily Scott, sparking rumours the pair are a couple. The 30-yearold lads’ magazine cover girl and the spin king stepped out at boxing champ Jeff Fenech’s 50th birthday in Sydney on Wednesday. Fenech told News Ltd he was delighted to have the couple at his party and was happy for them. “As long as my friend’s happy, I’m rapt,” he said. “It was really special to have them at my party but I’ll respect Shane’s privacy and leave it at that.”

Dairy farm prices sky-rocket By Michelle NelsoN

Premium dairy farm prices have jumped up to 15 per cent this year, hitting record values, a leading Ashburton rural real estate agent says. PGG Wrightson Real Estate’s Mid Canterbury sales manager Robin Ford said demand has markedly exceeded supply in the local market for dairy land, pushing prices up 10 to 15 per cent on average. “While farm prices are rising nationwide, with the strength of dairying locally, and the shortage of farms available for sale, Mid Canterbury is experiencing accelerating values at a stronger rate,” Mr Ford said. Properties with centre pivot irrigation, rotary sheds, producing 1650 to 1850 kilograms of milk solids per hectare are commanding $57,000 to $60,000 per hectare, excluding dairy company shares – an increase of $7000 per hectare since the start of the year. Foothills dairy farms sold for

$48,000 to $52,000 per hectare and four run-off farms in the region sold for between $50,000 and $54,000 per hectare, up $4000 to $5000 since Christmas. “Despite dairy payout prices and interest rates moving in opposite directions, neither of which is favourable for farmers, underlying fundamentals and confidence in the rural property sector remain positive,” Mr Ford said. Demand for land suitable for dairying is also the major influence on the market for MidCanterbury arable farms, although sales of these are few and far between, according to Mr Ford. “Since two neighbouring Dorie farms sold late in 2013 for a combined total of $22 million, no full-scale arable farm has been offered to the market. This reflects arable farmers’ difficult run with weather over the past few months, and is unlikely to change through the winter.” However, stringent new re-

Robin Ford says demand for dairy farms is exceeding supply.

gional council water management regulations could make dairy conversions uneconomic and influence the arable property market.

“This could change dairy farmers’ desire to purchase arable properties for conversion or dairy grazing, Mr Ford said. “While this may reduce the

rate of conversions from arable to dairying, it is unlikely to turn it around altogether.” On the move, P16


Two promising rugby stars killed in crash By MohaMed hassaN The two 23-year-old men killed in a crash in Northland early yesterday morning were promising rugby stars, the manager of their rugby club says. Vern Samuels and Ryan Wikaira were both killed after their sedan lost control on SH10 near Kaeo about 12.15am and collided with an oncoming ute after clipping the trailer of a truck.

Both men played for Kaeo Rugby Club, and club president Allan Martin said the two were “very exciting rugby players” who had been with the club for years. “I think it’s such a shock to everybody what’s happened. We’re just trying to comprehend it.” He said the club had not reached out to the families of the players yet, and were giving them space for the moment.

A third passenger in the sedan and the driver of the ute were both transferred to Bay of Islands Hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the truck was uninjured. Family, friends and members of the Kaeo community took to social media to show support and give their condolences. The Bay of Islands Rugby Union also offered its support to the families of the two players and their club.

“Kaeo has lost two promising young rugby players in a car accident last night. Vern Samuels and Ryan Wikaira were both players who came through the grades of the club. Our condolences to both families and the Kaeo rugby club.” Investigations are still underway as to the cause of the crash, and police are working with the families of the two men and the other drivers involved. Northland road policing man-

ager Inspector Murray Hodson said damp road surfaces and light rain may have contributed to the crash. It was the second fatal crash within hours. On Thursday night, eight-year-old Jasnoor Kaur, of Katikati, was killed in a three-car collision on SH29 in the Kaimai Ranges. Six others were taken to hospital, including a 5-year-old and a 12-year-old, both in a critical condition. - APNZ

Rethink on rubbish options

By Myles HuMe

When it comes to kerbside collection, Mid Canterbury homeowners want wheelie bins, but when it comes to paying they may not be so keen. The findings were revealed at an Ashburton District Council service delivery committee meting this week when councillors adopted a recommendation to further investigate options for rubbish and recycling collection, including the possible introduction of a wheelie bin service. Results from a recent survey show 46 per cent they wanted

the Rolls-Royce collection – three wheelie bins for rubbish, recycling and organic waste, along with the green bin for glass. Other options are two wheelie bins (no organic collection) (36.1 per cent) and the green glass crate or the status quo (18.1 per cent). However, just 53 per cent of respondents were prepared to pay increased rates for an organics collection. Council assets manager Andrew Guthrie said the current user-pays black bag system generated more than $600,000 in income used to cover the collection costs, but a wheelie bin scheme would be rated for.

“Council now needs to establish whether there is a wheelie bin option that presents value for money for ratepayers – one that is not as costly as the three bin system but still meets the needs of the community,” he said. Other results from the survey showed 46 per cent believed it was “very important” an organics collection was introduced, while a further 20 per cent said it was “important”. The council also received 10 submissions on its annual plan over kerbside collection, many questioning the cost of a wheelie bin system. Sharon Breakwell, of Ash-

Bex and Logan sought

burton Wastebusters Trust, believed the community was not ready for wheelie bins, but if it was going to head down that path it would have to be done right. A lot of her questions were based around finances, regarding the system set-up cost, contributions from homeowners and she also queried if the council could afford to set up a recycling facility and what would be done with the organic waste. Once council has evaluated all available information, it will present a preferred option for full consultation with the community in August.

Motorists ‘inconsiderate’ to horse riders By erin Tasker

Milly Perry fears she will end up in a wheelchair one day thanks to inconsiderate Mid Canterbury drivers. She regularly rides along the grass verges of Mid Canterbury’s rural roads exercising her horses and isn’t impressed by the actions of drivers who race past them at open road speed. Milly said she trusted her horses and knew they were good around traffic, but often it wasn’t the traffic that frightened horses. They could get spooked by something as simple as a gust of wind, a cow, a duck flying out of a creek, or even just the sight or sound of a creek, and that could cause them to jump into the path of an oncoming car. “People think that if someone’s on the road with their horse then the horse must be okay with traffic, but it’s not just the cars,” Milly said.

Milly Perry and Rusty take a ride along a rural Mid Canterbury road – something they do regularly and find that drivers don’t slow down for them. Photo tetsuro MitoMo 300514-tM-047

“I just don’t think people are aware of that.” Originally from Geraldine, Milly has ridden horses in oth-

er places but said Mid Canterbury drivers were the worst. “I try and pick the quiet roads but I have a real problem with

people not slowing down,” she said. “I just don’t want to end up in a wheelchair or whatever and not be able to ride again.” She became so concerned about drivers not slowing down as they passed her that she stopped riding her horses along the road for a while, but she lived on a small rural property with not much room to ride her horses so taking them down the district’s roads was vital exercise for them. “I did stop for a while because I thought it was just ridiculous,” she said. “It only takes a few seconds to slow down, even to 20km/h, and if you do hit us then it’s not going to be as bad and I’ll still be able to walk.” Some drivers did slow – there was one man in particular who she used to see most days, who always slowed for her – but the majority kept the same speed. She said motorists happily shared the road with cyclists, so why not show the same courtesy to people on horses?

Ashburton Police are on the hunt for a couple they know only as Bex and Logan. They haven’t done anything wrong though, the police just have something to give them. A kind Ashburton person has handed police a letter which was delivered to the wrong address, and they’re hoping they can find its intended recipients. The letter was addressed to Bex and Logan. Bex or Logan are asked to contact the Ashburton Police Station.

Body found The body of a missing Queenstown woman has been found by searchers in Lake Wakatipu. Renee Barrett, 42, had been reported missing since May 20 and her vehicle was found abandoned in Kelvin Heights last Friday. There had been extensive searches covering Lake Wakatipu, the Kawarau River and homes in Kelvin Heights. Helicopters were also deployed to conduct aerial searches of the area. Ms Barrett’s body was found about 150 metres from where her car was located. The case has now been referred to the Coroner. - APNZ

Seven arrested Seven young people have been arrested following a police chase from Waikato to Auckland involving two allegedly stolen cars yesterday. The cars were reported stolen at 1.30pm and were driving north along State Highway 1. Several police cars and a helicopter pursued the stolen vehicles for more than an hour. - APNZ

Couple married for 72 years By Toni Williams

Ashburton couple Hilda and James Murdoch will celebrate 72 years of marriage tomorrow with an intimate family gathering. The couple were married June 1, 1942. Then aged 22, they were married in Palmerston, Otago in what was to be the start of an exceptionally long married life. The Guardian featured Hilda and James Murdoch’s long marriage in a Valentine’s Day special four years ago. Their wedding day was shaped by the austerity of wartime New Zealand, but the lack of glitz and glamour did nothing to dim the romance of the occasion. He wore army khaki, she wore a practical suit. The guest list was short and in an era when travel was out of the reach for most, it was a wedding where the bride’s Auckland family was absent. They may have been “young and naive” but they were very much in love, Hilda said. “He was my first real boyfriend.” “And she was my first – and last,” James said. Fate had everything to do with Hilda and James meeting. He lived in Palmerston, she lived in Auckland. Back then you went where the work was and Hilda moved south to work at the Pleasant Valley Sanatorium as a nurse

aide. Through friends the 18-year-olds met, courted, and, sitting on the sanatorium gates one day, James asked the question that would change their lives – “will you marry me?” Hilda had no hesitation in saying yes. They travelled to Dunedin to buy an engagement ring that stripped him of all his savings. Back then spending 47 pounds on a ring was a big deal. The couple stayed in Palmerston for 60 years. James was a butcher and Hilda worked parttime in a dress shop. She worked until her early 80s. They have three children and moved to Ashburton 12 years ago to be closer to daughter Karen Bungard. Now aged 94, they both live at Coldstream House. They planned to have a luncheon celebration with family today – and will spend a quiet anniversary day tomorrow. They believe there was no real secret to marriage longevity but Mrs Murdoch said family was important. Over the years there had been arguments, but it was important not to hold grudges. “It’s having a nice family that holds you together, good children and being able to forgive and forget.” Mr Murdoch agreed, and said “you just keep on keeping on”. They have eight grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.

It’s having a nice family that holds you together, good children and being able to forgive and forget Hilda and James Murdoch have been married for 72 years.

Endangered mudfish flourishing By Myles HuMe

The future looks bright for the critically endangered Canterbury mudfish flourishing in the wetlands of Mid Canterbury’s Riverbridge Nature Centre. Department of Conservation (DOC) staff made their annual trip to Russell Langdon’s small slice of paradise in Westerfield to weigh, measure, count and check the health of what is the second most threatened fish species on the east of the South Island. DOC bioranger Steve Harraway said Mr Langdon’s wetland reserve was one of three he monitored yearly since the 1990s, and it was one of the most prosperous when it came

to the health of the Canterbury mudfish. He said the population was known to exceed 500 in years gone by, and this year’s 300-odd shows the species is in good order. “They are a critically endangered species mostly because their habitat in the wetlands have been drained, leaving just remnants and pockets like this where they can survive,” Mr Harraway said. The mudfish population struggles to co-exist with other species, so it is vital sanctuaries are established to ensure their survival. “I think there might be one eel in here but if it became an issue we would catch it and get it out,” Mr Harraway said.

Demolition cleared An order preventing deconstruction of Christ Church Cathedral has been lifted by the High Court. The Anglican Church and the Great Christchurch Building Trust (GCBT) led by Jim Anderton have been engaged in a litigious battle over its future since the 2011 February earthquake severely damaged it. In a decision released yesterday, Justice Chisholm lifted that stay. He said the Church Property Trustees have now committed to the construction of a new cathedral, they gave fair consideration to issues, and there was no evidence that improper motives affected the decision. - APNZ

Cop guilty on charges Hawke’s Bay police officer Adam Dunnett has been found guilty on six sex charges involving teenage girls. Three other charges have been dismissed. Dunnett, a 37-year-old Flaxmere constable, faced nine counts of indecent assault against five teenage complainants during a week-long trial earlier this month at Napier District Court. He strenuously denied the charges. In total, five different incidents were alleged to have occurred between May 2011 and New Year’s Day 2013, four at the Ocean Beach Surf Club and one at the Taradale Fire Station. - APNZ

Forbidden driver kills man

Teacher’s name to remain secret

By Jimmy ellingham The wife of a motorcyclist killed by a driver who fell asleep at the wheel says the woman is a coward for running from the scene. “You’ve ruined lots of lives and you should pay for what you have done,” said a victim impact statement from David Jenner’s wife, Tracy. It was read to Christchurch hospitality worker Holly Elizabeth Hodge who was returning to her mother’s house in the early hours of August 20 last year when she momentarily fell asleep on State Highway 16 at


Waimauku, west of Auckland. Just before 7am she crossed the centre line and struck a motorbike driven by David Jenner, who was riding into Auckland for work. Mr Jenner was killed and Hodge, 21, drove a short distance away, parked her car and walked to a friend’s house. She did not try to help Mr Jenner. The Waitakere District Court heard yesterday that Hodge was returning from the airport, where she had dropped off her brother, and had been awake all night. A forbidden driver, she should never have been on the

road. At her sentencing yesterday, a police officer read a victim impact statement from Mr Jenner’s wife Tracy, that had some harsh words for Hodge, who sobbed in the dock. “You are a coward and a murderer in my family’s eyes. You deserve to be punished,” the statement said. The Jenners came to New Zealand from England in 2003 and just weeks before Mr Jenner’s death, the couple bought their first home here. Now, Mrs Jenner said, she was worried about keeping it as her husband was the family breadwinner. She couldn’t believe what


Death first recorded in weekend road toll One person has died after a crash on the Coromandel Peninsula last night – the first fatality of the Queen’s Birthday weekend holiday road toll period. Motorists heading towards Whitianga last evening faced significant delays following the head-on collision at Whenuakite. Emergency services were called to the scene of the crash on SH25 about 6.30pm, District Road Policing Manager, Inspector Freda Grace, said. Initial indications were that a campervan collided head-on with a 4x4 vehicle, resulting in one person travelling as a passenger in the 4x4 losing their life, she said. “The driver of the 4x4 suffered serious injuries and has been flown to Auckland Hospital by helicopter while the two occupants of the campervan have been taken by ambulance to Thames Hospital.” With the official holiday period only three hours old this tragedy really brings home the need for drivers to ensure both they, and their vehicles are fit for the road. “With rain forecast its really important people drive to the conditions to ensure we all make it through to Monday.” The Serious Crash Unit would be conducting an investigation into what caused the crash. - APNZ

started as normal day, when the pair kissed and said they loved each other, would end in tragedy. Earlier this year Hodge admitted charges of careless driving causing death, failing to stop and check for injuries and driving while forbidden, but the court was told yesterday she had since been caught driving again in Christchurch. This time her car was impounded. Judge Phil Gittos sentenced her to nine months’ home detention and disqualified her from driving for two years. - APNZ

By Jared Savage The identity of former teacher at a top secondary school accused of committing an indecent act at the school is still secret. Name suppression remains in place for the man who was a long-serving teacher at the school until the allegations of sexual misconduct were raised with management in June last year. He resigned from the school following an internal investigation and was suspended from teaching in December on an interim basis. The teacher was then charged by police in April with committing an indecent act _ which he denies _ and has fought to keep his identity secret. The NZ Herald and the police opposed suppression at the hearing at the Auckland District Court yesterday afternoon, and a letter given to the court shows the school does not support name suppression for its former employee. However, Judge Claire Ryan was convinced by the submissions of his lawyer Richard Earwaker that publication of the man’s name would lead to “extreme hardship” for members of his family _ one of the high thresholds which must be met for suppression to be granted. Mr Earwaker’s submissions are also suppressed. Name suppression will remain in place until the man’s next court appearance and he will stand trial in August. A New Zealand Teachers Council spokesman previously confirmed the teacher was under investigation by the education body. “He was suspended in June last year and he resigned the following month,” the spokesman said. “Our understanding is that he hasn’t taught since then. He also has signed a voluntary undertaking not to teach.” The council had suspended the man on an interim basis anyway, meaning he cannot lawfully work as a teacher. “We know about the charge and our disciplinary investigation will be completed, a tribunal hearing conducted and a decision handed down after the criminal processes are completed,” the spokesman said. - APNZ

Labour won’t close mines

By Lee ScanLon

West Coast coal mines would not be at risk from a Labour/ Greens government, says Labour leader David Cunliffe. He was in Westport yesterday, accompanied by West Coast-Tasman MP Damien O’Connor, at the end of a daylong West Coast visit. About 60 people turned up to the informal Westport meeting. “We are not going to let the Green Party close down the coal mines of the West Coast – it’s not going to happen,” Mr Cunliffe told them.

“But to make sure it’s not going to happen we’ve got to maximise the Labour Party vote.” He said Labour would back responsible mining. “We were born in the mines of the West Coast. There’s no way a Labour Government is going to close them down.” Mr O’Connor said West Coast mining had undergone huge development under the previous Labour government, when Labour had relied on the Greens for support. Greens’ co-leader Russel Norman was pragmatic, Mr O’Connor said. The Greens did

not propose to close existing mines, but said they wouldn’t support opening new ones. “I have no fear for our industry here,” Mr O’Connor said, adding it was unrealistic to oppose the opening of new coal mines. Mr Cunliffe gave no guarantees a Labour Government would support royalties for regions, so more proceeds of extractive industries came back to the areas where they operated, but said Labour would look into it. Labour would target regional development, including on the

West Coast, he said. “Whatever cheque book it comes out of, we will be committed to the Coast.” Mr O’Connor said the previous Labour government had considered royalties for regions, but “officials won the day”. It was “simply not right” that Stockton mine had generated huge wealth for New Zealand yet Buller ratepayers were still struggling to provide basic infrastructure for the district. New mines must show real, long-lasting benefits for their regions, he said. - APNZ


Annual event celebrated at new venue And they’re off. Ashburton Intermediate held its annual cross-country yesterday and it was the year eight boys who were first out of the blocks. The cross-country was held at a new venue this year, with the Ashburton A&P Showgrounds being replaced by the Ashburton Business Park off Northpark Road. Students made their way around a 3km course in fine but cool conditions. Photo Erin taskEr 300514-Et-002


Teacher de-registered after affair By Patrice Dougan A teacher who crept into the bedroom where a student was sleeping in his house and kissed her has been de-registered. The male teacher, who was granted name suppression, admitted having an inappropriate relationship with the Year 13 pupil in September last year. He was charged with serious misconduct by the Teachers Council after the relationship came to light. The teacher, who was married with children, was also

spotted by other students kissing the girl in a classroom. In evidence given to the council, he was found to have invited the pupil to stay over at his home when his wife was away, and during that time held her by the shoulders and rested his chin on her head. A week later the teen babysat for his children, she slept overnight at the house and the next morning he went into the bedroom where she was sleeping and kissed her. When he drove the girl to her friend’s house later that day, he

pulled over to the side of the road where they kissed for five to 10 minutes and he felt her breasts under her clothes, the council decision said. Two days after this encounter he attempted to break it off with the pupil until she finished school, because he was due to appear before the Board of Trustees at the unnamed school. In a text message he told the girl, “I love you so much”, and said he would deny to the board that he told her he “wanted to make love to you”.

“I can’t save my job but I might save my career,” he said. “Be well. None of this is your fault. “Concentrate on your exams, my darling.” The text included a number of kisses. Brought before the Teachers Council the man, who qualified as a teacher in 2005, admitted the relationship and that it constituted serious misconduct. He was censured and removed from the teachers register. - APNZ

RNZ jobs to be scrapped By John Drinnan A senior source says up to 15 editorial positions are to be scrapped at Radio New Zealand but an RNZ spokesman denies any cuts are on the cards. RNZ communications boss John Barr said any suggestion of staff cuts was “completely and utterly wrong”. However, a well-placed source said the job cuts were approved by the RNZ board of governors on Thursday. It is believed that the changes are partly aimed at refreshing the approach to on-air content and some long-established staff may be included in the cuts, the RNZ insider said. Changes also coincide with an increased emphasis on Radio NZ’s online operation. It is not clear whether new people would be hired to replace those who leave. The source said RNZ has looked at hiring new senior news personnel but did not have the money to meet the market. It is understood job cuts had been identified, with between 12 and 15 news staff to go depending on how many accept offers of jobs elsewhere in RNZ. Wellington-based chief executive Paul Thompson will be visiting the Auckland and Christchurch newsrooms meeting with staff affected by the changes next week, but there may need to be more consultation with staff and unions including the Public Service Association and the EPMU. RNZ announced Thompson’s appointment in June last year ending the 10-year reign of Peter Cavanagh who had clashed with the Government and new board chairman Richard Griffin. Thompson – who has a background in print journalism but not radio – worked with Griffin on the reform. RNZ has suffered from a funding freeze imposed by the Government, but there are signs that National may end the freeze next year. Thompson has made swift changes to Morning Report, Checkpoint and the Sunday morning programme, now fronted by Wallace Chapman. But RNZ sources said there is deep-seated resistance to proposals to introduce a more proactive and aggressive style of journalism. Ironically the more aggressive approach under co-hosts Guyon Espiner and Susie Ferguson has added to tension with the Government. RNZ’s Barr said there were no announcements to be made in the wake of yesterday’s board meeting. - APNZ

New top cop keen to clean up S

cott Banfield used to pass through Ashburton as just another boatie heading for a day of fun at Lake Hood. But now he’s looking at the town through different eyes. That’s because he’s now the man charged with ensuring Ashburton people have the safest place possible to call home. Mr Banfield is the new senior sergeant and officer in charge at the Ashburton Police Station. He brings with him 28 years of experience in policing both in New Zealand and abroad and has worked in numerous aspects of policing, from road policing and general duties, to VIP planning and diplomatic protection. He’s no stranger to Ashburton; not only is he a keen boatie who frequents Lake Hood with his wife and three children, he was also once part of the diplomatic protection team for Ashburton’s Jenny Shipley when she was prime minister. He ensured that she and her family were safe and looked after, and he loved the job. That – like many of the roles he’s taken on in his career – was important and he sees the job ahead of him in Ashburton as important too. The big difference in his latest role is that he’s going to be a bit more high profile than he’s used to. But he knew that when he took the role on. He’s spent the bulk of his career working out of Christchurch and one of the biggest advantages Mr Banfield reckons he has, coming to Ashburton, is the contacts he has in Christchurch. “Christchurch, like it or not, is the mothership,” he said. And he won’t hesitate to use them for advice, resources and specialist units. Mr Banfield describes himself as a “straight-up kind of clown” and not the kind of person to sit on his hands. While his new role will involve plenty of time in the office, he also wants to be out in the thick of it. “I have two offices – my office at the station and my car,” he said. Ashburton had the same problems as any other town in New Zealand – family violence, public place violence and drink driving among them. But an increase in public place vio-

Scott Banfield’s name is about to become one of Ashburton’s most recognisable. He’s just taken on the job as senior sergeant at the Ashburton Police Station, the officer in charge role. Erin Tasker reports. lence in Ashburton recently has already caught Mr Banfield’s eye, only a week into the job. Night-time assaults might be commonplace in cities, but they weren’t – and shouldn’t be – in towns like Ashburton, he said. “So we’ll be looking at what the police need to do about that,” he said. A recent spike in burglaries – which had dropped off in the past month or so – had also caught his attention and he will be working closely with the police’s intelligence unit to profile where problems were occurring and who might be causing them. Mid Canterbury police were a good bunch, he said. “My first impressions here of the staff is that they are hard workers and my role is not only to reassure my staff that they have the support they need, but that also flows out into the community,” he said. “The police is an organistation that runs a business and that business is law enforcement and people have a right to expect a good product from the police, so

we are always looking for ways to improve. If we drop the ball on odd occasions we should be looking at how to improve.” Mr Banfield remembers being told when he joined the police force to be very open-minded in the police and try lots of different areas of policing, which he’s done. He believes that’s made him a better police officer. After his diplomatic protection stint Mr Banfield went back to general duties and sought promotion. He was soon made sergeant and actu-

ally landed a role as sergeant in Ashburton, but other opportunities came up in Christchurch so he decided to stay in the city. It was a choice he hasn’t regretted and one he reckons has set him up well for the senior sergeant role in Ashburton a few years down the track. “It probably worked in my favour because it exposed me to new skills which I’ve now brought to Ashburton,” Mr Banfield said. To be the officer in charge of a station, you needed to have a broad range of knowledge and skills across the policing spectrum and Mr Banfield reckons his experiences have allowed him that. He’s served abroad, in East Timor at the end of the crisis and

then in the Solomon Islands during the 2011 unrest, before heading back to East Timor as part of a community policing project in 2012/13. There he was based in Dili, but spent much of his time in a place called Maliana, near the border with Indonesia. “I came home with a new appreciation of New Zealand; it’s such a fantastic country,” he said. He’s worked in community stations, walked the beat in the city and run public order teams. He was part of the VIP squad which ensured the Christchurch leg of the recent Royal visit by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went off without a hitch. For the past eight months he’d been based in the district command centre working on the introduction of the police’s new prevention first strategy, something he’s passionate about. And he plans to bring that passion to his new role in Ashburton. “Ashburton, whatever it has to offer, the police will be sticking their hand up and saying what can we do for you and what can you do for us,” he said. It was all about Safer Communities Together – the slogan on the side of police patrol cars. “People may think it sounds corny, but it’s the truth,” he said.

Winning signage designs selected BY TONI WILLIAMS


Year 9 students Josh Bloomfield, Rebecca Joseph and Sophie McCleery were the creators of four winning designs chosen for the Ashburton College Smokefree signage competition. Miss Joseph created two winning designs. The students were notified yesterday. Along with having their designs made into signage to be placed around the school, the students got a $50 The Warehouse voucher for each design. The competition was run by Community and Public Health to find a Smokefree sign to use for entrance ways to the school premises, and others would be used at strategic sites on the grounds. It was the first time the organisation had run the competition, giving students free range to create Smokefree signage that related to them. The main condition on the design was it had to include the

phrase ‘Smokefree grounds and buildings, at all times’ and be readable. Angela Leadley of Community and Public Health said the response to the competition was overwhelming with 153 entries received. She said it had been well supported, and promoted, by the college staff. The judging panel of Cancer Society health promoter Mandy Casey, Community and Public Health’s Carly McDowell and Angela Leadley, and college Year 9 tutor Dave Christensen and deputy principal Helen Shore-Taylor also highly commended eight students for their work. They were Abel Wilson, Nikita Begbie, Jay Hurst, Emma McDowell, Caitlin Bradford, Alex Potts and Ryan Jackson. Josh Bloomfield’s second entry was also highly commended. Mrs Leadley said all the entries had been well researched and were destined for use. “We were very impressed

NZ beacon activated in the US By Patrice Dougan A Blenheim man has been rescued in California, thanks to his New Zealand-registered personal locator beacon. The 85-year-old was searching about 120km north of Sacramento for a gold mine he first discovered as a boy, when his vehicle became stuck in the mud. He activated his New Zealand-registered personal locator beacon, and its signal was received around 9.30am yesterday (NZ time), Mike Roberts of the Rescue Co-ordination Centre New Zealand (RCCNZ) said.

“Because the beacon was registered we were able to quickly confirm with the man’s emergency contact, his son, that he was in California, and contact the State’s Office of Emergency Services in the United States who confirmed they had also picked up the beacon and were co-ordinating a response. “We were able to confirm that the man was fit and active with no known medical condition, and all of this was passed to the Californian OES. “Their rescue personnel located the man 31km east of Paradise, California, around 2pm. He

was uninjured but his vehicle was firmly stuck in mud. They assisted in freeing it and we understand his search for gold has resumed.” Originally from California, the man had spent his youth working for a forestry company, where he first stumbled on an abandoned gold mine. The man’s son said he had visited the same site with his father a few years ago, but failed to find the gold mine his father stumbled on as a 15-year-old. He said recently his father has been looking at topographical maps of the area, and decided

to head back and have another look. The man’s family were informed of his rescue, Mr Roberts said, adding the incident showed the benefit of carrying a registered beacon. “No matter where you are in the world, when a New Zealand-coded beacon is activated the signal will be picked up by both the RCCNZ and the rescue co-ordination agency in the region where the beacon is. “As in this case, we work with the other agency to assist in the response - and because the beacon was registered we were able

The AAU staff were recognised on Thursday for helping to promote the Smokefree message to patients. The Canterbury District Health Board record Smokefree patient statistics in all its departments. AAU charge nurse manager Marg Anderson said every admission to the unit was assessed for their smoking history. They were also told the Canterbury District Health Board grounds were Smokefree. “Those currently smoking are given a Quit Pack and nicotine replacement therapy, if requesting it. “Audit results show the staff in AAU are making great improvements in capturing smoking data and offering quit advice,” she said. The hospital’s latest results for patients showed the Birthing Unit, Ward Three and Ward Six each had 100 per cent Smokefree patients. AAU sat at 92 per cent and Ward One had 91 per cent.

to provide useful information about the man.” RCCNZ spokesperson Steve Rendle said it wasn’t the first time a New Zealand-coded beacon was used to assist a search. Last year, authorities in Nepal used a locator beacon signal to help co-ordinate a search. Beacons were also used in many searches in New Zealand, but Mr Rendle said most people took them for granted. “It’s a legal requirement, but a lot of people don’t have them registered.” - APNZ

Fire destroys sleepout Billows of smoke could be seen from hundreds of metres away down in High Street in Carterton as a sleepout went up in flames yesterday afternoon. Three fire crews were called to the scene of the fire on Moore Crescent at the south end of Carterton. Carterton Senior Station Officer Richard Epplett said two Carterton crews attended at 2.30pm and called for a third crew from Greytown, realising the fire was out of control. About 15 firefighters attended the fire. Two crews had to don breathing apparatus. Mr Epplett said the sleepout had been gutted by the fire but he said the crews had done a good job getting the fire out quickly and making sure it didn’t spread to nearby houses. The cause of the fire is yet to be determined. - APNZ

Nomads of the dairy indu By Michelle NelsoN


undreds of people and thousands of cows will be on the move over the weekend, as part of the annual Gypsy Day pilgrimage. June 1 signals the beginning of the new dairy season and the traditional day for sharemilkers and farm workers to take up new positions. For the past few weeks those moving on have been packing up lock, stock and barrel in preparation. Gian and Bituin Paulo, and their children – two-year-old Anie and Paris, almost 9, are one such family. Today they will be moving from their Lauriston home of the past three years to Ealing, where Mr Paulo has a new job as 2IC on Mark and Devon Slee’s farm. Originally from the Philippines, the family has lived on Helen and Greg Elliot’s property, just a stone’s throw from the Lauriston School, for three seasons. They have mixed feelings about the move. Bituin and Paris moved to New Zealand three years ago to join Gian, who had already been here for a number of years. Anie was born the following year. “There were better opportunities here (in New Zealand), but it was hard to leave our comfort zone – our families and friends and move so far away,” Bituin said. The family found a homeaway-from-home in the Lauriston district, especially in the tight-knit school community, and Bituin and Paris in particular will miss their friends. “I’m excited and nervous

Gypsy Day is a huge deal in Mid Canterbury. Guardian reporter Michelle Nelson looks at who’s on

about starting my new school,” Paris said. And the fact that the family already know a couple who work on the new farm helps.

Gian is looking forward to milking a smaller herd, almost half the size of the one he’s been used to. The couple both hope there

will be more family time. The fact that the Slees were the supreme winner of this year’s Canterbury Environment Award is another drawcard.

“Dairying has a large impact on the environment, so I’m pleased to be going to the Slees to learn what they do,” he said.

Gypsy Day a Kiwi farming tradition Gypsy Day is a unique Kiwi farming tradition, and nowhere is it more evident than in Mid Canterbury, where hundreds of people and thousands of cows are on the move, and millions of dollars worth of property changes hands.

The deals may have been done months ago, but June 1 is D-Day. More than $200 million dollars changed hands in the 2012-2013 season, and with land prices hitting the $60,000 a hectare mark, there’s every reason to

expect at least that much money will have been transferred for the season ending tomorrow. Moving cows off the dairy platform on to winterfeed blocks also takes place around this time, and many motorists will have

encountered large herds on the roads. Be patient, these animals have earned a well-deserved break before they start pouring white gold back into the Mid Canterbury economy in a couple of months.

ypsy Day has hit Hinds School hard this year. While Mid Canterbury’s rural schools accept the dairy change-over as part of a regular schooling calendar, this year principal Eric Davis and Hinds School will welcome a staggering 16 new faces, making up 10 per cent of the roll. With 11 pupils moving on to schools as far as Waimate and Rangiora, the school’s net gain will be five children and teachers have been scrambling to ensure they know the capabilities of their new pupils, but also that they have the latest information for the new schools of departing youngsters. Mr Davis said the transient nature of living in a sharemilking family was exciting for some children, but

the downside was some newcomers fell behind. “The structure has to be in place to allow them to catch up and become part of the classroom, the last article I read in the case of children shifting schools is that when they move there can be a delay, even when they stop one week and start the next. “It said there could be a delay of six weeks and that is significant.” Mr Davis said pupils at Hinds had accepted the dairy change-over as part of the school fabric and welcomed their newest counterparts with open arms. He said the school itself had also made itself better prepared, with this year’s change-over going along smoother than previous years as families, schools and the community communicating at a better level.

Contradictions abound with dating A

ll kinds of contradictions surface when Americans lay out their thoughts on dating, especially when it comes to money and gender roles, an Associated Press-WE TV poll found. Seven in 10 of those surveyed say it’s unacceptable to expect a date to pay for everything. But most still say it’s a man’s job to pay for the first date. Most say it’s okay to ask someone out because he or she seems successful. But even more say it’s unacceptable to turn down people because they haven’t had much success. One-third think it’s okay to search for online clues about a potential first date’s success in life. But very few say daters should pay attention to each other’s finances before they begin an exclusive relationship. Overall, the traits that men and women rate as important lean to traditional gender roles. Men and women agree that personality is the most important trait to consider when deciding whether to go on a first date with someone and very few say money is a top consideration. Yet for men, a sense of humour outweighs intelligence, and they are more apt than women to prioritise looks. Most women place greater emphasis on a suitor’s financial situation

When Americans gave their thoughts on dating, some of the results were surprising. and career ambitions. It’s not just older people who feel that way. The differences are amplified among younger singles. About half of single men under age 45 say looks are a priority, while 70 per cent of single women under 45 call career ambitions key. There’s a clear gender gap on finances.

More broadly, uncoupled Americans are squeamish about dating those whose financial situations may not equal their own. A shaky financial past is generally acceptable and more say they’re comfortable dating someone who grew up in a poor family than in a wealthy one. But a questionable present

84 per cent say they’d marry someone they love regardless of whether she or he could provide financial security. Women are more cautious, with 61 per cent would choose marriage for love without regard to financial standing. Over time, Americans’ views on how women ought to balance family and career have

For men, a sense of humour outweighs intelligence, and they are more apt than women to prioritise looks

Men are less likely than women to say they’re comfortable dating someone who makes significantly more money than they do. Seventy-one per cent of women would be comfortable in that situation, compared with 59 per cent of men. Women are more wary of dating someone who earns less. Forty-three per cent of men would be okay dating someone with a significantly lower salary, but just 28 per cent of women would.

inspires doubt. Just 16 per cent say they would be comfortable dating someone who is unemployed, and 23 per cent say they would be comfortable dating someone with significant student loan debt. Once dating turns to commitment and love, money is a bigger consideration for women when deciding whether to wed. Among men who aren’t married or living with a partner,

shifted in favour of greater choice for women. But the poll also finds a more restrictive view on how men with a family ought to view their career, suggesting the rules many apply to dating continue once families are formed. A Time/Yankelovich survey conducted in March 1978 found that about three-quarters of Americans felt women ought to put their husbands and children ahead of their careers and felt

women with young children shouldn’t work outside the home unless it’s financially necessary. Now, about half hold those views. But the AP-WE TV poll also found that half of Americans believe a man with a family has a responsibility to choose a higher-paying job over one that is more satisfying, compared with 42 per cent who felt that way in 1978. The poll was conducted in conjunction with WE TV ahead of the launch of the show Mystery Millionaire. The poll was conducted May 16-19 using KnowledgePanel, GfK’s probability-based online panel designed to be representative of the US population. It involved online interviews with 1354 adults, including an oversample of 310 adults who have never been married. Results for all respondents have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. Respondents were first selected randomly using phone or mail survey methods and were later interviewed online. People selected for KnowledgePanel who didn’t otherwise have access to the internet were provided with the ability to access the internet at no cost to them.

Big day for anyone tied to dairying Coen Lammers EDITOR


omorrow is a big day. Not only does it signify the official start of winter, but it also signals the move of farmers, sharemilkers, stock and other farm workers. Most of us will be aware that Mid Canterbury farmers and their stock have been on the move for a few days now as people no longer wait until Gypsy Day itself to get ready for the big move. The days that everything had to happen on one particular day are long gone and with June 1 coinciding with Queen’s Birthday weekend this year it has increased the need for planning. There are many people affected by Gypsy Day, and not just those working on farms. Lawyers, accountants and real estate agents have been going flat out the past few days to get all the paperwork done to transfer farms, land and stock from one owner to another. A couple of years ago the Guardian calculated that up to $250 million dollars was changing hands on this particular Friday, so no surprise the lawyers and their clients want to dot the Is and cross the Ts. That figure may even be higher this year as it includes the record $75 million sale of one farm near Ealing. Aside from land and property, Gypsy Day of course affects a lot of people. Many families have to set up lives in a new house and new area, while their children are forced to farewell their school friends and start making new friends on Tuesday. For teachers and principals Gypsy Day is also tricky, because they suddenly can lose several pupils or have to accommodate an unpredicted jump in their school roll. So if you are not personally involved in Gypsy Day, but get stuck behind a herd of cows on a country road this weekend, spare a thought for the farm workers, their partners and their children. Don’t get impatient, but count your blessings that you can actually enjoy the long weekend.


YOUR VIEW Sexual offender Fact: The sexual offender as I understand it is considered to be at risk of re-offending. Fact: A girl named Kylie Smith was murdered in Owaka by a previous rapist who was moved into the area under ‘supervision’. Fact: Sexual offending must not be accepted in our communities. By bringing this person back into our society we are saying his crimes are okay. Serious sexual offenders such as this person often re-offend and, in this particular case, this man even used animals to stop himself from offending.


Fact: As a parent I absolutely reserve the right to protect my children. Under what planet does the authorities think its okay to put this man in the near vicinity of a preschool and a primary school. Deeply concerned

A home away from home Left – Ashburton features at Te Papa.

Hanne Nielsen

Yesterday’s result Q: Would you class yourself as overweight?

Yes 47%

Below – A stuffed jersey cow with a working udder.


No 53%

Today’s online poll question Q: Do you slow down when driving past people riding horses on rural roads?

CONTACTS time-lapse maps show the extent of deforestation that led to the creation of pasture in New Zealand over the past few centuries. The maps are accompanied by the sound of crackling flames – reminiscent of the burn-offs of today – as a reminder of how much of the farmland was cleared to make way for livestock like sheep and cattle. These days dairy is a big industry for Canterbury, with our milk products exported to many countries. The marketing methods have changed somewhat since the 1950s however, as evidenced by one of the displays that featured a stuffed jersey cow with a working udder. This bovine beauty with

rubber plumbing and a refillable milk bladder (accessed via a zip in the cow’s neck) was used to promote New Zealand dairy products in the United Kingdom during the 1950s. Taxidermy is no longer the flavour of the day, but the campaign clearly did something right, as our udders and their owners are still in demand. Te Papa boasts many more displays, but my personal favourite was the sheep cam. Have you ever wondered what the world looks like from the perspective of one of these woolly mammals? Well, wonder no more. This exhibit features footage taken from a camera mounted to a sheep’s head. The screen is interactive,

with six choices of situation available to the viewer, including Out to munch (sheep eating grass), Bossy dog! (sheep being herded) and Little lamb lost (a lamb that is, surprisingly enough, both little and lost). While a local version may have nicer views of mountains in the background, they would likely go unappreciated, as sheep seem to spend the bulk of their time concentrating on the pasture below. Between the Sheep Cam, Fred Dagg and a taxidermy cow, my trip to the big city revealed far more about smalltown life than expected. Wellington may be a bumpy plane ride away, but Mid Canterbury, you need not fear you’ve been forgotten.

Good or bad, life is all about change H ow times have changed. This has been said over many generations. In all walks of life many things have changed. Our health system is changing all the time. The time you are kept in hospital after surgery is considerably reduced. There is keyhole surgery, laser treatment and more. The education of our young folk has changed and is still changing. Our ancestors travelled to New Zealand, taking many weeks by ship. Today it is a few days by airplane.


Right – The Sheep Cam.


his week I visited Wellington, seat of Parliament and home of winds that put even our gusty nor’westers to shame. Sometimes regional parts of New Zealand can feel like the bigwigs at the Beehive don’t even know they exist, but a visit to Te Papa proved that Mid Canterbury does have a place in our capital city. That place is halfway up the third panel of postcards on the wall outside the Blood Earth Fire exhibition. In the midst of this collage of picturesque destinations, Ashburton’s clock tower stands tall and proud, nestled between Coromandel and Cambridge. Even the Canterbury Plains get a look in, the aerial shot of their patchwork paddocks tucked away at knee height. Around the corner is an insight into the rural life that takes place on said plains, presented to a soundtrack of the famous Chesdale Cheese advert. Photos of woodchopping competitions and A&P shows from the days when long socks and walk shorts were in fashion adorn the walls, while Fred Dagg has free range over the television screen. On a more serious note,

There has been a change in the cost of living. In the past mothers stayed at home to look after the children. Today they go out to work and preschool children go into daycare. This means there are fewer people to help others through volunteering. In a few years I can see there will be no volunteers. More change. Transport has changed from

riding horses to school, to going by bus or car. Recently I was talking with some friends about the changes around the central business area of Ashburton; a number of buildings that have gone and still more to go. More change. A number of years ago there were mainly Pakeha and Maori people living in the district, now there are many different cultures. More change. Another change has been the decrease in numbers attending church services or being part of a church.

Jesus lived his short life through change. He was born in a stable in Bethlehem. Jesus was a carpenter with his father in Nazareth. He then changed to working in Galilee (Matthew 3:13), becoming a teacher, preacher and healer to many people. Jesus’ life changed again when he went to Jerusalem, where he was arrested, treated badly and crucified. All our lives there have been changes. Some are good, some are not so good.

Guardian nominated for award BY ERIN TASKER


The Ashburton Guardian’s five entries in the 2014 PANPA Advertising and Marketing Awards have beaten out hundreds of others to be named as finalists. Ashburton Guardian general manager Desme Daniels said it was great news for the team at the Guardian, and followed a win at PANPA last year and being shortlisted in the best brand campaign at the Canon Media Awards last month. “To have all five submissions selected as finalists in this year’s PANPA awards is a huge achievement for the Ashburton Guardian,” Ms Daniels said. “It’s a testament to the hard work and clear vision of everyone who works at the Guardian on how we can continue toimprove our publications, not only for our readers but also for our loyal advertisers. “To have industry recognition

Being an independent newspaper we are a small fish in the huge ocean of media corporations, yet again ‘little old Ashburton Guardian’ has been recognised in this competitive industry.” The Guardian’s YOU magazine – designed by Lisa Fenwick, Yendis Albert and Ally Lamb - is up for the best print supplement title. “This monthly supplement has gone from strength to strength and being chosen as a finalist is great recognition for the way this magazine has de-

What did the budget deliver for business?


he 2014 New Zealand Government Budget was about consolidating gains from its policies and making the most of our growing economy. The Budget shows growth, spending, tax and debt are on track with an imminent return to surplus. It is reassuring to see a forecast of continued growth. While the Budget typically in an election year focused on health, education and justice, the Government sees its role as creating and sustaining an environment that enables businesses to prosper and jobs to grow. Therefore there was attention given to maintaining a favourable business environment, with additional investment in research and development, infrastructure and skills. The $20 million for an additional 6000 trade apprenticeships should be welcomed by small to medium-sized businesses – particularly those involved in the Christchurch rebuild.

Matt Hannah


However, there will be a lag between the necessary skills being available from apprenticeships, and the urgent need for businesses struggling to find qualified trade employees. Businesses and employees will also benefit from a reduction in ACC levies, with the promise of more reductions to come. Another positive change for small and medium sized businesses is the announcement that companies with a turnover of less than $30 million or assets of less than $60 million are no longer required to prepare general purpose audited accounts. While this is not strictly a Budget change, it is a welcome simplification to the financial reporting requirements.

There is also funding allocated for more Centres of Research Excellence and additional support for innovation and export businesses. The Budget did not deliver any notable changes or improvements for small to medium businesses from a tax perspective. Other countries allow businesses of a certain size to operate under simplified tax systems while New Zealand companies are required to follow the same tax rules, with their inherent complexities, as large businesses. It would be good to see tax simplification for small businesses back on the table. Despite the New Zealand economy looking strong and comparing positively to other countries, there are still a number of challenges. Interest rates, high levels of indebtedness, the high Kiwi exchange rate, and the housing market remain risks that businesses will need to navigate.

Allegations ‘bizarre and scary’

Former New Zealand cricket player Chris Cairns arrives at Auckland Airport yesterday after returning from London where he was interviewed by the Metropolitan Police and investigators from the England and Wales Cricket Board and the ICC’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit. ap photo


Chris Cairns continues to deny allegations of match-fixing following his return from London where he was interviewed by the Metropolitan Police. The interview was expected to relate to match-fixing allegations in testimony from former New Zealand cricketers Brendon McCullum and Lou Vincent with the International Cricket Council’s anti-corruption and security unit. Cairns read a statement to media on his return at Auckland International Airport yesterday. In his statement Cairns said that Stephen Fleming, Daniel Vettori and Kyle Mills have provided statements as part of the investigation. Chris Cairns named Stephen Fleming, Daniel Vettori and Kyle Mills as the three players who have given statements to the ICC regarding his alleged role in match-fixing. Cairns arrived back in New Zealand yesterday after spending the week in London with his lawyer Aaron Lloyd. He describes the allegations ranged against him as “absurd, bizarre and scary”. He was questioned by the

Metropolitan Police in relation to an investigation into possible match-fixing, with a view to the possibility he perjured himself in the defamation case Cairns v Modi in the High Court. Cairns is one of three players, along with Daryl Tuffey and Lou Vincent, being investigated by the ICC’s anti-corruption unit. They played together in the short-lived Indian Cricket league for the Chandigarh Lions. Cairns and Tuffey has consistently denied any wrongdoing. Vincent has admitted he is fully co-operating with the investigation. Cairns said he attempted to befriend a troubled Vincent in 2008, but Vincent had betrayed that friendship and was trying to mitigate against his own fixing. Cairns said Brendon McCullum, who also testified against Cairns after allegedly being approached, had waited until February 17, 2011, before reporting the alleged approach. Leaked testimony had him accusing a former teammate identified as Player X of co-opting him into fixing across different countries. - APNZ


Erakovic Adams facing NBA elimination out Marina Erakovic has been knocked out of the French Open following a straight sets defeat to fifth seed Petra Kvitova. Erakovic led 3-1 in the second set but couldn’t hold off the hard-serving Czech as the world number six advanced to the third round with a 6-4, 6-4. Erakovic was looking to reach the third round in Paris for a second straight year but didn’t help her chances after being broken in the opening game. That was Kvitova’s only break point of the set but proved to be a crucial one as she took control of the match with her dominant serve. Kvitova again broke Erakovic’s first service game in the second set to go up 1-0 but the New Zealander broke straight back followed by her second break of the match to take an unexpected 3-1 lead. But her lead was shortlived and Kvitova completed the 6-4, 6-4 victory. - APNZ

Steven Adams’ remarkable rookie season could come to an end as early as tomorrow after Oklahoma City dropped game five of the Western Conference Finals. San Antonio dominated in all areas to win the pivotal clash 117-89, seizing a 3-2 lead in the series and advancing to one game away from a repeat trip to the NBA Finals. With all five games so far in the series going the way of the home team, the Thunder will fancy their chances in game six back in Oklahoma, where a win would send the series to a decisive game seven in San Antonio. If the Thunder are to achieve that objective, they will need to make massive improvements from today’s game at the AT&T Center in Texas. San Antonio were unstoppable offensively, shooting 51 per cent from the field and an exceptional 50 per cent from behind the three-point line. Having headed to the second quarter tied at 32, the Spurs outscored the Thunder by 10 points in each of the next two periods to quickly turn the game into a blowout. The Spurs put six players in double figures and were lead by 22 from Tim Duncan, while

Manu Ginobli came off the bench to nail three of his four attempts from beyond the arc. Adams was helpless to stop the offensive outburst, posting similar numbers to what he has recorded in the playoffs to date but unable to exert his influence defensively. The Kiwi played 20 minutes and scored six points on three-offour shooting, while also managing four rebounds and an assist. His contributions did come in meaningful minutes, being rested along side Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook - who combined for 46 points - during garbage time in the fourth quarter. That may portend greater game time tomorrow, when the Thunder defence must repeat their efforts from the successful games three and four. Even if Adams has only one game left in his maiden campaign, the 20-yearold will have surpassed all expectations after being drafted No 12 overall last year. The centre has become an integral part of the Thunder’s title challenge and, having been a relative later-comer to organised basketball, his steady improvements throughout this season promise a bright future. - APNZ

In brief

Penalty tries boost Crusaders By Patrick Mckendry The Crusaders last night won against a pretty good Force team who threatened to turn the match, played in freezing temperatures in Christchurch last night, on its head at one point. It was not pretty, but it was a victory which consolidated their lead on top of the New Zealand conference, the margin of victory given a massive boost by two penalty tries with 10 minutes remaining. On balance, they were both fair decisions by referee Mike Fraser. Kieran Read got through an 80-minute shift after his return from concussion. His intercept in the final minutes almost led to a second try for Johnny McNicholl but for a superb cover tackle by Nick Cummins. Their set piece, especially their scrum, was increasingly dominant, Fraser awarding the penalty tries for a collapsed lineout maul, and, after the fulltime siren, a screwed scrum as the Crusaders went for the kill. The finish put a gloss on this match, because at times the home side were too inaccurate. After leading 16-0 at halftime, they battled against a team with few stars and a pretty ordinary record in this competition. Two other worries were the shoulder injuries sustained by All Black captain Richie McCaw and Israel Dagg. Neither seemed overly serious, but with the first test against England only a week away, Steve Hansen will be hoping for two good injury reports.

New race leader The second stage of the Bayern Rundfahrt crowned a new race leader as Hayden Roulston and the Trek Factory Racing team faced another harsh day in their return to competition yesterday. Mathias Frank (IAM Cycling) took the leader’s jersey with a convincing win at the top of the finish climb; Thibaut Pinot (FDJ. fr) and Leopold Konig (NetAppEndura) placed second and third respectively. Roulston was the highest placed Trek rider and leads the way for the team on the GC sitting 33rd. This morning third stage of five was a 232km effort.

Michael Foley’s outfit are no easy beats. They went into this match one place below the Crusaders in fourth, with, like the home side, eight victories to their name this season. After a good start in which right wing McNicholl scored a try and had a second ruled out due to obstruction by prop Tim Perry, the Crusaders failed to kick on. This Force team don’t do a lot of flash stuff, but they are excellent at the breakdown. With men such as No8 Matt Hodgson in their line-up, they were as good as the Crusaders, who

boasted the return of Read, McCaw and Jordan Taufua. Any thoughts of a bonus point victory went out the door once fullback Dane HaylettPetty went under the posts for the Force shortly after halftime. With Crusaders fullback Dagg injured by a late shot from hooker Nathan Charles, unnoticed by referee Fraser, the home side battled for an attacking edge. Nemani Nadolo was a force again in the first half, but failed to get into the game as it ground on. A turning point was the sinbinning of Force lock Sam

Wykes with 10 minutes remaining. The Crusaders took a lineout close to the Force line, the resulting maul was collapsed and a penalty try awarded. After having to dig extremely deep to beat the Highlanders in Dunedin last weekend, it was perhaps no surprise that the Crusaders were a bit flat, but their record at home this season has been poor. Crusaders: 30 (Johnny McNicholl try, 2 penalty tries; Colin Slade 3 pens, 3 cons) Force: 7 (Dane Haylett-Petty try; Sias Ebersohn con) Halftime: 16-0 - APNZ

Last gasp try saves Reds in Brisbane The Reds damaged the Highlanders’ Super Rugby play-off prospects with a stunning 38-31 victory win at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane last night. Hoping to bounce back from an agonising loss to the Crusaders in Dunedin in the previous round, the Highlanders instead squandered an opportunity to maintain pressure on the Crusaders and Chiefs despite fighting back from a 21-0 halftime deficit to draw level in the last minute through replacement halfback Fumiaki Tanaka. Hayden Parker added the extras but the Reds strung together 18 phases either side of the siren before Jake Schatz powered over by the posts - the culmination of an attack that spanned 55 metres. Unlike Quade Cooper and James Horwill - who received

their commemorative cap amid a six-game losing streak - the Wallabies halfback could savour a win that sees the 2011 champions climb off the foot of the table. Will Genia fittingly, in his 100th match, had the honour of kicking an immaterial conversion that sparked celebrations. The Reds’ fourth successive win over the southerners still enabled the Highlanders to provisionally improve to fourth thanks to two bonus points, but they will rue it an an opportunity lost. The Highlanders made an expansive start, stressing a defensive line that missed six tackles in the opening five minutes, but the half degenerated steadily from there as the second worst defence in the competition piled on 21 unanswered points.

The Highlanders played into the hands of their opponents with an all out attacking strategy that was all risk, and no reward. By the end of an entertaining opening half, the Highlanders had turned over the ball 16 times. They also committed 10 handling errors and lost four lineouts - a Rob Simmons steal a minute from the break when the Highlanders were within range of breaking their duck summed up the visitors’ benevolence to a side low of confidence. The Highlanders required a drastic improvement to maintain pressure on their rivals in the New Zealand conference after the break but although Lima Sopoanga crashed over from close range his knock-on three minutes later laid the platform

for the Reds’ set piece dominance when Jake Schatz claimed a pushover try to inflate the margin to 28-7. Richard Buckman bridged the gap when a Sopoanga grubber ricocheted in the right wing’s direction and the Highlanders should have made more inroads with 10 minutes remaining when a Ben Smith try was ruled out after television match official George Ayoub ruled Malakai Fekitoa obstructed Anthony Fainga’a. The centre was left to lament the contact because a sevenpointer would have cut the Reds lead to 31-24 - the All Blackin-waiting’s unnecessary indiscretion looked criminal when Patrick Osborne raced 80m, and again when Schatz snared the match-winner in the 83rd minute.

Braden Currie was hoping to celebrate his 28th birthday yesterday with another stage win in the Pengzhou Outdoor Challenge in China, and potentially an overall win. Braden’s Team NZ Adventure including his older brother Glen, Dougal Allan and Jess Simson claimed the win on the second stage on Thursday night (NZ time). They had come in third on day one and by coming in first on day two set up the possibility of taking the overall win on yesterday’s final stage, having pulled back a massive margin on Red Bull to be in second place overall with around 12 minutes advantage on third place.

Draw for All Whites If last night’s match was seen as a job interview for interim All Whites boss Neil Emblen, he may face a nervy wait for a call back. The All Whites, missing five first choice players, drew 0-0 with South Africa at Mt Smart Stadium in a performance which showed glimpses of potential but, ultimately, ended in a dour stalemate. Applications for the new coach closed yesterday and Emblen said he hoped a good All Whites performance might help bolster his CV. They showed periods of promise against a nimble opposition, got lost in patches, but did enough to suggest there is a bright future. Individually, some All Whites impressed but, overall, they played like an inexperienced team thrown together at short notice, unfamiliar with each other. And they were. They had three teenagers, an average age of 23 and four of the starting 11 had a combined seven caps between them. - APNZ

Buyer for Clippers Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has agreed to buy the Los Angeles Clippers for a recordbreaking $US2 billion ($NZ2.4 billion). Now it’s up to others whether the deal goes through. Shelly Sterling said she had signed a binding contract for a sale of the Clippers by The Sterling Family Trust to Ballmer in what would be a record deal if approved by the NBA. Ballmer “will be a terrific owner,” Sterling said. “We have worked for 33 years to build the Clippers into a premier NBA franchise. I am confident that Steve will take the team to new levels of success.” - AP

New focus for Jackman M

ark Jackman’s future in sevens has hit a cross roads. The Mid Canterbury product has been overlooked by coach Gordon Tietjens from the squad to prepare for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in July - on his birthday no less. It was disappointing news but allows him to begin preparing for his next challenge, signing with the Southland Stags for the 2014 ITM Cup. With all sevens roads leading to Rio and the 2016 Olympics, missing selection from the squad is a big setback, but he is upbeat. “It’s unfortunate to miss out on but they have a pretty strong squad,” Jackman said. “I’m now focused on my opportunity in Southland and doing all I can towards getting back in.” Jackman missed most of last year with a thumb injury including the Sevens World Cup victory in Russia, and made his return to the national side for the first tournament of the 2013-14 World Series on the Gold Coast in October and then the fourth leg in Las Vegas in January but has been on the outer ever since. “Yes Vegas seems a long time ago “I just haven’t been able to crack it. I’ve been to all the training camps and put in some good performances. It’s not through a lack of training or anything. They just have a really strong squad with a settled starting seven and I haven’t been able to crack a bench yet.” Jackman was a settled member of the squad before injury, and it was injuries in the sevens squad that gave him his first chance and could again provide an opportunity. “I guess my injuries gave someone else an opportunity to prove themselves but I was

Mark Jackman missed the cut for the Commonwealth Games and instead of heading to Glasgow to play sevens he is bound for Invercargill to play fifteens. Jonathan Leask talked to Jackman about what’s next for the sevens representative. in the same situation when I came in it with Toby Arnold who was injured and I took his spot and now that’s happened to me. “I just need to stay injury free and keep forcing my case at the camps and sooner or later I’ll get another shot. “The Commonwealth Games would have been a special event so it’s unfortunate I won’t get a crack at it unless they have injuries.” This latest omission suggests Jackman, a contracted sevens player with the NZRU, has been supplanted in the eyes of Tietjens two years out from sevens new biggest stage. “A lot of water has to go under the bridge before Rio. I just have to stay injury free, keep pushing my case to hopefully get an opportunity and take my chances. It’s all a bit cliché but just the way it goes I guess.” With sevens not an option in the short term, Jackman has found a new challenge for himself that could also be a stepping stone. “I’m fluttering around with 15s at the moment playing a few games for High School Old Boys but I’ve only got one more game for them before I head down to Invercargill to play with the Southland Stags. “They had a few position spots open so

I’ll push my case down there.” Jackman has had a few runs in the 10 jersey for HSOB and is eyeing up the vacant 10 jumper in Southland. “I’m really enjoying it at first five. “It’s a little different than what I grew up playing but I feel like I have the skill set for it so I’ll be pushing for the starting 10 spot.” The Southland first five spot is currently wide open with incumbent Marty McKenzie transferring to Taranaki. Jackman will have competition from fellow new recruit from Canterbury Jamie Verran, who is viewed more as a fullback, and potentially former Stag Richard Apanui, 34, who is expected to return from France and last played for Southland in 2005. However, yesterday Southland announced the signature of Highlanders first-five Lima Sopoaga on a two year deal with the 23-year-old making the shift south after four years with Wellington. The options provide an interesting dilemma for new coach Brad Mooar who takes over from nine-year coach David Henderson after being the assistant coach with the Southern Kings Super Rugby side, and a good challenge for Jackman. “It’s a good opportunity. I’m looking for-

ward to getting down there and getting back into 15s. I’ll try to play to the best of my ability and whether that leads to Super 15 or sevens only time will tell. “I’m a contract sevens player to end of the year and even though I haven’t had the season I was hoping for I still enjoy sevens and the lifestyle that comes with it. “Playing with Southland gives me more options if that door was to close.” His ITM Cup commitments clash with the opening of the 2014-14 Sevens World Series on the Gold Coast but he will be available for the Dubai and South African legs - when the Super 15 players are usually unavailable. For now Jackman is turning his focus to 15s but with sevens still firmly in his sights.

Steven Luatua

Steven Luatua, a standout for the Blues last year but unable to break into the starting line-up this season, is set to miss the All Blacks cut when the final squad is named in Auckland tomorrow. Luatua is likely to be the victim of a personal form slump and the return to New Zealand of Blues teammate Jerome Kaino, a player who is very close to his World Cup form of 2011. Kaino, who has the ability to play blindside flanker and cover for Kieran Read at No8, has brought a physicality that Luatua simply hasn’t been able to match this season. Luatua, 23, was an attractive proposition to the All Blacks selectors last year due to his ability to cover lock, but, providing there are no injuries during tonight’s matches between the Chiefs and Waratahs at Yarrow Stadium and Blues and Hurricanes at Eden Park, he isn’t likely to add to his 11 caps in the

of his game, so hence he’s not doing enough when he’s out on the park,” he said. “He’ll do something and then go missing for five or six minutes.” Apart from Kaino, back in the frame for the black jersey for the first time since he wore it in the World Cup final against France, the other big winner among the loose forwards will be Victor Vito, discarded after last year’s June internationals but back now due to his excellent form for the Hurricanes. Vito has the ability to play all three loose forward positions and Hansen is satisfied the 27-year-old has worked on becoming more physical and aggressive, flaws which have let him down in the past. The selectors will include only two hookers - Dane Coles and Keven Mealamu - with Nathan Harris and Liam Coltman not quite up to the required speed. However, the two youngsters - Chief Harris is 22 and Highlander

Coltman 24 - will remain in the frame. They will train with the All Blacks when they are based in Hamilton and Dunedin over the next few weeks. As predicted, Crusaders loose forward Luke Whitelock and Hurricanes lock Jeremy Thrush will drop out after attending only one of the two recent training camps in Christchurch and Wellington. The selectors have selected 17 forwards and 14 backs, with three halfbacks and three first-fives. Crusaders No10 Colin Slade’s inclusion is thanks partly to Blues fullback Charles Piutau’s injury. Slade has been in good form for the Crusaders but also has the ability to play at fullback or even wing. Blues lock Patrick Tuipulotu will be hopeful of earning his first cap against England - his excellent form in his first year at this level earning the 21-yearold a place among the chosen few. - APNZ

England have to solve some jigsaw puzzles for their opening test with the All Blacks but one piece will be constant. Openside flanker Chris Robshaw will be the captain in what will be a personal and leadership duel with Richie McCaw. Robshaw turns 28 next week with 26 caps in the white jersey and his eyes on the next stretch of rugby territory until England host the eighth World Cup. If things go pear-shaped he has a business management degree in his pocket but his focus is on Eden Park next Saturday and the start of a 15-test surge before the global tournament kicks off. After the last World Cup ended with England left to rework their ideas after a quarter-final exit against France, new coach Stuart Lancaster had to grab a new leader with the retirement of men like Lewis Moody, Jonny Wilkinson and Steve Thomson.

The squad held a training camp in Leeds where one of the priorities was to pick a captain who would be an automatic selection. “Chris at the time only had one or two caps but he stood up there as a natural on-field leader, someone who commanded respect from his peers because of the way he played the game,” Lancaster said. “He had a good level of club experience captaining his side Harlequins and they had won the premiership final.” To help his passage into the test arena, Lancaster appointed a group of players to strengthen the leadership model. That guidance has been boosted by players on the Lions tour. “I think overall his qualities are that he commands respect because of the way he plays the game,” Lancaster noted as his squad settled into Auckland. “He is a doer not a talker which is the best way to approach the captaincy and I think he has grown and matured in the role.” - APNZ

May’s driving card could yield gems BY MATT MARKHAM


Ricky May found out the hard way why you can never be too confident heading into the Harness Jewels. Despite picking up a victory with Terror To Love at last year’s Jewels in Ashburton, the Methven horseman had a tough day at the office overall after he was touted as the driver to follow throughout the day. Seven of May’s drives at the meeting started inside the top three favourites and only three filled a placing. “It definitely taught me that you can’t be too confident, that’s for sure.’’ Fast-forward 12 months and the most successful driver in New Zealand Trotting Cup his-

mate just how good she is. “Her trial at Addington last week was really impressive – she felt great.’’ Helena Jet is one of three runners May will drive for the Woodend Beach-based Hope training duo. The other two, Monbet and

Mossdale Connor, turned heads with impressive workout victories at Cambridge last week and from good barrier draws are expected to play a big role in their respective races. “I think Monbet would have to be my best chance of the day. “He’s a talented trotter and he’s finally got a barrier draw to use, he feels like he could trot out quickly if I want him too. “Mossdale Connor is in the same sort of position, he can fly the gate if he wants too, but it’s what we do after that is the big question – I think he could lead if he wanted to.” May’s drives for the day are rounded out by three-year-old filly, Lancewood Lizzie and also Davey’s Gift in the three—yearold Ruby for Michael Ward.

Ashburton Guardian 29


Whistle-blower faces big test By Erin TaskEr

Karen Bennett will today begin the biggest challenge of her hockey umpiring career. She’s in Holland umpiring at the Hockey World Cup – a tournament which brings the 10 best teams in the world together to battle for world glory. It’s Bennett’s first world cup and it’s a long way from the hockey fields at the Ashburton Domain where she first learnt to play, and later umpire, the sport she loves. Bennett, 30, recently became a grade one international hockey umpire and is part of the International Hockey Federation (FIH) Road to Rio Programme, which she hopes will ultimately lead to her goal of umpiring at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Selection for her first world cup is a huge step towards that goal and as she prepares to umpire her first matches today, Bennett knows it will be a big step up, but it’s a challenge she’s looking forward to. She’s one of 17 umpires on the women’s side of the draw and already this week she’s umpired a practise game between Korea and Germany. Some of the teams she’ll encounter at the world cup, she umpired just a couple of months ago at the Six Nations in Hastings. “All of those teams are in the top 10 in the world so it was a really high calibre tournament for the build-up,” she said. Umpiring has already taken her around the world – this is her third time in Holland and she’s also been to China, Thailand, Malaysia and Fiji. “It’s interesting when it’s not a professional sport, you sort of treat it like as a professional hobby. You’ve still got to stay fit and be in good form when they select you, and work on all your skills,” she said. “It’s a lot of work, but a lot of fun.” Bennett is a teacher who works parttime at Duvauchelle School and they’re

good to her, allowing her the time off she needs to further her hockey umpiring career. The world cup is the big tournament it’s the tournament all teams have been saving something special for. So Bennett knows it’s going to be a big learning curve. Already this week she’s had to do fitness sessions, umpires briefings and psychological sessions before the tournament even starts. She’s also attended a video briefing as the tournament will include the video referral system – the second time Bennett’s encountered the technology. “I actually quite like it because it’s a part of the game now. It’s just another tool to our tool box,” she said. “We definitely don’t want to rely on it and we want to get the decision right as much as we can, but it’s quite good for those split second things where you can’t quite see, or you make the wrong Karen Bennett (left) is umpiring at her first World Cup of hockey, starting in Holdecision.” land today. photo supplied A stellar performance in Holland will boost her chances of making it to Rio, but that’s still a couple of years away. Once Bennett returns home her attention will turn to New Zealand’s rising stars when she once again umpires in the National Hockey League, starting in August. The days of running around the Ashburton Domain as a five-year-old learning how to play hockey now seem like a life-time ago, but Bennett still remembers turning up to those same grass fields in her teenage years to learn how to umpire. She’s taken the skills she learnt back then and continually built on them over the past 15 years, but never dreamt they’d take her to where they have. “It just erupted. It just sort of happened to me; I just kept blowing my whistle,” she said. “Then someone said ‘do you want to go on this tour’, and here I am still going on tours.”

stayed next to the tree throughout Thursday, silently protesting the police response. Indian TV footage showed the villagers sitting under the girls’ bodies as they swung in the wind, and preventing authorities from taking them down until the suspects were arrested. Police arrested two police officers and two men from the village later and were searching for three more suspects. Autopsies confirmed the girls had been raped and strangled before being hung, Saxena said. The villagers accused the chief of the local police station of ignoring a report by the girls’ father that the girls

were missing. The station chief in Katra, 300km southwest of the state capital, Lucknow, has since been suspended. The family belongs to the Dalit community, also called “untouchables” and considered the lowest rung in India’s ageold caste system. Records show a rape is committed every 22 minutes in India, a nation of 1.2 billion people. Activists say that number is low because of an entrenched culture of tolerance for sexual violence, which leads many cases to go unreported. Women are often pressed by family or police to stay quiet about sexual assault, and those who do

report it are often subjected to public ridicule or social stigma. India tightened its anti-rape laws last year, making gang rape punishable by the death penalty, even when the victim survives. The new laws came after the fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old woman on a bus in New Delhi that triggered nationwide protests. Health workers, police and women’s rights activists say women and girls face the risk of rape and harassment when they go out into fields or bushes due to the lack of toilets in their homes. More than a half billion Indians lack access to toilets. - AP


Desalination solves water woes After experiencing its driest winter on record, Israel is responding as never before — by doing nothing. While previous droughts have been accompanied by impassioned public service advertisements to conserve, this time around it has been greeted with a shrug — thanks in large part to an aggressive desalination program that has transformed this perennially parched land into perhaps the most well-hydrated country in the region. “We have all the water we need, even in the year which was the worst year ever regarding precipitation,” said Avraham Tenne, head of the desalination division of Israel’s Water Authority. “This is a huge revolution.” By solving its water woes, Israel has created the possibility of transforming the region in ways that were unthinkable just a few years ago. But reliance on this technology also carries some risks, including the danger of leaving a key element of the country’s infrastructure vulnerable to attack. Situated in the heart of the Middle East, Israel is in one of the driest regions on earth, traditionally relying on a short, rainy season each winter to replenish its limited supplies. But rainfall only covers about half of Israel’s water needs, and this past winter, that amount was far less. Northern Israel, which usually gets the heaviest rainfalls, received just 50 to 60 per cent of the annual average. Tenne said the country has managed to close its water gap through a mixture of conservation efforts, advances that allow nearly 90 percent of wastewa-


In brief

Village protests rape, killings Two teenage sisters in rural India were raped and killed by attackers who hung their bodies from a mango tree, which became the scene of a silent protest by villagers angry about alleged police inaction in the case. Two of the four men arrested so far are police officers. Villagers found the girls’ bodies hanging from the tree early Thursday, hours after they disappeared from fields near their home in Katra village in Uttar Pradesh state, police Superintendent Atul Saxena said. The girls, 14 and 15, had gone into the fields because there was no toilet in their home. Hundreds of angry villagers

Second diver dies A diver has died during the search for people still missing inside a sunken South Korean ferry. It’s the second such death among divers mobilised since the ferry sank on April 16, leaving more than 300 people dead or missing. Government task force spokesman Ko Myung-seok says the diver fell unconscious when he was pulled to the surface by fellow divers Friday. Since the sinking, 288 bodies have been recovered but 16 people are still missing. No new body has been retrieved since May 21. - AP

Bomb damages hotel Northern Ireland police say a bomb has detonated in the lobby of a Londonderry hotel, but a swift evacuation ensured that nobody was injured. The device exploded early Friday inside the entrance to the Everglades, one of the longest operating hotels in Northern Ireland’s second-largest city. Hotel staff said a masked man tossed the suspected bomb into the hotel, then fled. The bomb exploded as British Army experts were deploying a remote-controlled robot to defuse it. No group has claimed responsibility, but police and politicians say Irish Republican Army hard-liners opposed to Northern Ireland’s peace process are suspected. IRA factions are active in Londonderry. - AP

5.9 quake in China Twenty-nine people have been injured, five of them seriously, in a shallow earthquake which has hit southwest China. The quake hit with a magnitude of 5.9 on yesterday morning, the US Geological Survey says. The epicentre was in China’s Yunnan province, 65km southeast of Myitkyina, capital of Kachin state in northern Myanmar, USGS said, estimating the quake’s depth at 10km. Shallow earthquakes can often cause greater damage than more powerful deep ones. Chinese state media said the tremor hit Yingjiang county. - AP

ter to be recycled for agricultural use and, in recent years, the construction of desalination plants. Since 2005, Israel has opened four desalination plants, with a fifth set to go online later this year. Roughly 35 per cent of Israel’s drinking-quality water now comes from desalination. That number is expected to exceed 40 per cent by next year and hit 70 per cent in 2050. The Sorek desalination plant, located roughly 15km south of Tel Aviv, provides a glimpse of that future. With a loud humming sound, the massive complex produces roughly 20 per cent of Israel’s

municipal water, sucking in seawater from the nearby Mediterranean through a pair of 2.5mwide pipes, filtering it through advanced “membranes” that remove the salt, and churning out clean drinking water. A salty discharge, or brine, gets pumped back into the sea, where it is quickly absorbed. The facility, stretching nearly six football fields in length, opened late last year. Avshalom Felber, chief executive of IDE Technologies, the plant’s operator, said Sorek is the “largest and most advanced” of its kind in the world, producing 624,000 cubic metres of potable water each day. He said

the production cost is among the world’s lowest, meaning it could provide a typical family’s water needs for about $300 to $500 a year. “Basically this desalination, as a drought-proof solution, has proven itself for Israel,” he said. By meeting its water needs, Israel can focus on longer-term agricultural, industrial and urban planning, he added. Disputes over water have in the past sparked war, and finding a formula for dividing shared water resources has been key in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. - AP

The changing face of Ashburton


The East Street central business district is undergoing a changing face as buildings are bought up to earthquake strengthening code and new developments planned in the district. The changes promised to draw more people into town to shop but one retailer is calling for caution. Arcade retailer Bob McDonald, of Heath 2000, has been in the arcade shopping mall for twenty years.


AGRICULTURE & LIFESTYLE 832 East St 03 307 9911 0800 432 633

AUTOMOTIVE & MARINE 153 Moore St 03 307 7620

He said the changes to the CBD were positive as development brought down cheap rent buildings and reshaped Ashburton. However he cautioned town planners about spreading out the town and moving away from a central business district. There were developments planned on the east side of town but he was interested in the district council plan to keep the CBD alive. “If they allow another development, it will be the undoing of the CBD,” he said, of Ashburton’s continued growth. “It’s a real mess.” “We need more direction and CBD focus put on it by the council to condense it and not allow it to splinter.” “If they can’t, it won’t encourage other developments.” Mr McDonald said the district needed the focus to build a vibrant and strong retail sector. “It’s positive what’s happening now; it’s a chance to get rid of cheap rent buildings.” However the new buildings bought issues such as the cost of occupancy, a concern for any retailer. There were completed developments such as Ashburton Central on the corner of Cass, Tancred and Moore Streets occupied by national retail chains Briscoes, Noel Leemings, Number One Shoe Warehouse and Postie Plus. New developments such as the newly built Holmeslee Square; the two-storey

retail, office and restaurant complex on Burnett Street and East Street already had tenancies and included Nandos, Michael Hill Jeweller and Vodafone. And current development underway on the corner of East and Grey Street where the buildings fronting East Street were due to be demolished and a four tenant block created – it included a Chipmunks Playland and Cafe. Plus the recently announced future Eastfield development, a shopping

complex with a group of nine Ashburton land owners on Burnett, Cass and Tancred Street. The Ashburton District Council (also a landowner) was a strong leader and facilitator in this project. It was meant to give town a new retail focus. Mr McDonald said a supermarket back in the CBD would be ideal to bring foot traffic back into town but any big anchor tenant was needed to draw in others.

From our motoring writers Roger Hart and Bernard Egan

before departure and if either is bad delay your trip if possible. Carry a set of chains especially for Alpine Passes and Ski fields. During winter there is an increased possibility of road closures and detours so it is a safeguard to leave with plenty of fuel on board. It’s a good idea to have jumper leads, a towrope and a mobile phone charger in the vehicle.

As well as ensuring our vehicles are prepared it’s essential to make sure drivers and passengers are too. Carry rugs for warmth and warm clothing including jackets, gloves, scarves and hats in case there is need to exit the vehicle. Sometimes especially if its wet or when there’s snow its easy to end up with wet feet so some alternative footwear, maybe a pair of thick socks can be very useful and comforting.


It’s always important to be fully prepared before we set off on any trip but especially so during the winter months. Because they are the connection between vehicles and the road, tyres including the spare should be in good condition and correctly inflated.

lights are working properly and wiper blades are in good condition.


Brakes and shock absorbers should also be up to standard. Always test and/or dry out the brakes after driving through surface flooding. To ensure good visibility it’s wise to make sure heating and defrosting systems are working well, sun visors are suitable and we have appropriate eye wear.

Worn or incorrectly inflated tyres are a hazard. If in doubt about tyres check with a qualified specialist. Winter can be hard on vehicles so it’s wise to make sure the battery is good, coolant fluids are suitable, lights including hazard

If windows are iced up don’t drive before they are all clear, there are good deicing products and utensils available. It’s a good idea to check both the weather forecast and road conditions

It’s wise to carry a first aid kit and a torch (with spare batteries) both of which should be checked periodically. Having some food and drink on board is a really good idea. and being seen is important so drive with headlights on. Don’t overlook the vehicle’s warrant of fitness; make sure it’s up to date.


On longer trips we should always take breaks and doing so in winter can have the added benefit of being reinvigorated by crisp refreshing air combined with spectacular views. Black ice is one of the greatest dangers during the colder months so we should always be careful in shaded areas and hand in hand with that goes the need to maintain a very safe following distance.

While it may seem there is a lot to think about in reality these are simple checks which could be life savers.

Winter conditions can often affect travel time so always allow for that and if possible avoid being on the road after dark.

Often winter provides us with some amazing scenery and while we should enjoy that it’s also important not to become a distracted.

A few simple checks, taking precautions and always driving to the conditions will help ensure winter trips are safe, stress free and enjoyable.

NOTICE TO FORMER EMPLOYEES OF THE NEW ZEALAND POST GROUP Anyone who was employed by New Zealand Post Limited (or any of its subsidiary companies listed below) on or after 1 April 2004, and who has received overtime or call backs, may be eligible for a payment to correct some leave calculations. A court ruling in late 2012 – on the interpretation of the Holidays Act 2003 – has resulted in the company recalculating payments to its current and former employees when taking certain types of leave since 1 April 2004. Where applicable, these payments will be corrected to employees. A letter has already been sent to the last known address on New Zealand Post’s records of former employees entitled to an arrears payment. If you think you might be affected and have not received a letter, please visit the New Zealand Post website at for more information and to submit a claim immediately. If you are unable to access the website, call 0800 149 199 or (+64 4) 830 0654 if calling from a cell phone or overseas. The New Zealand Post Group businesses include:

Have Your Say

– Draft Local Approved Products (“Legal Highs”) Policy Ashburton District Council’s draft Local Approved Products Policy (LAPP) is now available for community consultation. The LAPP specifies where in the district retailers of approved psychoactive products (more commonly known as “legal highs”) may be located. Although the Government has recently revoked all approvals for psychoactive products and licences to sell them, it is likely that some of these products will return to the market in 2015. Council needs to be prepared for when this happens, so has continued with development of its LAPP. Council wants to hear what you think of the proposed policy. The LAPP can be found on Council’s website, or you can pick up a copy from the Ashburton Library, or the Council office at 5 Baring Square West, Ashburton. Submissions close at 5pm on Monday 30 June 2014.

Current employees of the New Zealand Post Group do not need to submit a claim: you will be contacted directly if you are eligible for an arrears payment.

YOUR STARS by Forecasters

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20) Sometimes the only way you can get to an empowered and opportune place is to get through the hard stuff, which you can finally put behind you. TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21) As Venus spends her first weekend in your sign this is giving you a chance to listen to your heart, taking time out to enjoy the fun side of life. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 22) While with your birthday month underway you need to have your eyes on the road ahead, this is a weekend for embracing a sense of nostalgia. CANCER (JUNE 22 – JULY 24) Venus’ first weekend in a social and serendipitous part of your chart is giving your social life a timely boost, just as your future is opening up. LEO (JULY 24 – AUG 23) As the last planet to move through your career sector for the year, Venus’ first weekend here is about listening to and trusting your heart. VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 23) With Venus spending her first weekend in an adventurous part of your chart and Mercury his first in a social, serendipitous part life is spicing up. LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 23) Weekend or not it’s important to keep your professional and money hats on, with some important insight and clues to be gained on both fronts. SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) If you’re serious about embracing a passion for adventure and a hunger for life’s richer experiences, then it starts now, with no more excuses. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) There will be little chance of keeping your money or work hats off this weekend, with a chance to regroup and take a fresh look at your options. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) Fortunately or unfortunately an important weekend for relationship matters and matters of the heart also requires you to keep your professional hat on. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) With an element of fun in play and Mars bringing a passion for adventure and a hunger for life’s richer experiences embrace the weekend spirit. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) At such an important time across the board and especially for matters of the heart, this is a weekend for working to give your heart a voice.
