A raid at a second Andrew Street address again failed to nab Ashburton fugitive Christopher Allan Esmy Quinton last night. Armed police officers searched the address about 6pm following a tip-off from the public, but did not find the Ashburton man who has been on the run for nine days. It was the second time since Wednesday last week police have searched an Andrew Street house after a warrant was issued for Quinton’s arrest for family violence offences, including assault on children. “Last night’s search was not at the same address as last week. But we didn’t get anywhere, we are still looking for him and still consider him dangerous so we don’t want the public to approach him,” Detective Leigh Jenkins said. Many Andrew Street residents peered out from their driveways, curious of the events

unfolding in their typically quiet street. Police were seen talking to several people outside the house. “The occupants were all very co-operative and we didn’t have any issues,” Mr Jenkins said. Ashburton police still believe Quinton is in the Ashburton to

Hinds area, staying close to his support networks. He may have grown a beard to cover his neck tattoo and grown his hair. At night, he could be walking local streets with a hood over his head. Police have asked authorities

to cut off his welfare benefit, believing he will now be desperate for extra cash he usually earned from blackmarket tattooing. Police have asked the public for information after officers and the armed offenders squad spent Wednesday and Thursday night last week searching sev-

eral properties in Ashburton. It is believed members of the public are assisting him. Sightings of Quinton or knowledge on his whereabouts can be reported to Ashburton police on 307-8400, 111 or anonymously on Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Rudolph the reindeer is having a glittering antler makeover — the latest attempt to halt some of the thousands of road deaths of the roaming caribou in the wilds of Finland. Anne Ollila of the Finnish Reindeer Herder’s Association says the antlers of 20 reindeer have been painted with various fluorescent dyes to see how the animals react and whether the paints are resistant to the harsh Arctic climate. If successful, animals with glittering antlers will be free to roam Lapland — a vast, deserted area in northern Finland where herders tend to some 200,000 reindeer.

‘Priceless surprise’ for Lorde Lorde has been named Best International Female Solo artist at the Brit Awards, and she called the honour a “priceless surprise”. Lorde beat Janelle Monae, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Pink to the award, which was given to her during the star-studded Brits ceremony at the O2 in London. The 17-year-old told the crowd: “I’m still so new to getting awards that my brain feels like it’s exploding every time it happens, so forgive me. Thank you to the strong, intelligent, inspiring women in this category. This really was a priceless surprise.” Earlier, Lorde performed with British electro group Disclosure. Introduced by host James Croyden as “two of the biggest new acts to come through this year”, the chilled-out performance was backed by a giant outline of Lorde’s face made of lights. The 17-year-old was dressed in a long, black sequined dress.

Movie legend Richard Burton vowed to stay sober while making the classic movie. Under Milk Wood by limiting his drinking to only one bottle of vodka a day. The Welsh actor, who was a hardened drinker, appeared in the 1972 film opposite his on-again-off-again wife, Elizabeth Taylor, and Peter O’Toole. The film’s director has opened up about the making of the movie in a book called Down Under Milk Wood. In the tome, Sinclair reveals the difficulties he faced as he attempted to gather three of Hollywood’s biggest names together, describing it as like “fixing a weekend between Howard Hughes, Queen Elizabeth II and Puck”. The moviemaker also claims Burton promised to cut down his booze intake while making the movie, adding, “‘I am not drinking on your film,’ he told me. ‘That means only one bottle of vodka a day. I’m sober on two, but when I’m drinking it is three or more’.”

Artwork not up to scratch? A cleaning woman in southern Italy has unwittingly thrown away contemporary artworks that were supposed to be part of an exhibition. Lorenzo Roca, head of the cleaning company, said the woman “was just doing her job” when she thought two artworks were part of trash left behind by those setting up for the show that opened this week in Bari. Show organisers said one of the works she gave to a city sanitation crew before dawn included pieces of cookies, which were scattered on the floor, as part of an artistic arrangement. Roca said the cleaning company would use its insurance coverage to pay for the trashed art works, whose value was estimated at 10,000 euros ($13,700).

■ POLICE CRACKDOWN ON ASHBURTON

Influx a bid to end crime spree By Erin TaskEr

erin.t@theguardian.co.nz

Additional police have been called in from Christchurch to help bring Ashburton’s current crime spree to an end. Police officers from Christchurch have been making themselves well known and widely seen around town this week in an effort to prevent the problem getting any worse, Ashburton Police senior sergeant Grant Russell said. Last week the Guardian reported there had been 50 bur-

glaries in Ashburton over the past three months. More have since been added to the large tally prompting the out-of-town help. “We’re trying to be more proactive and that’s always been my aim, but I’ve never had the bodies to be able to do it,” Mr Russell said. “We’re concerned with the amount of burglaries that have been happening and the theft ex-cars, and we are looking at it from a prevention side. “We had the option to get some extra staff in from

Christchurch and as a result deploy those staff to visit some of our known local customers and some of our repeat customers and keep a good eye on those people and addresses.” It’s something police always tried to do, but time and staffing numbers didn’t always allow. Having the extra staff from Christchurch meant they could focus on the prevention, while Ashburton staff continued with their every day duties. “It brings some reassurance back to the public that we are

out there and in the meantime, we are able to maintain our standards of everyday policing,” Mr Russell said. “It’s easy to say we should be doing it all the time, and I agree, but I just don’t have the staff to do that.” The extra staff are acting on information received from both the public and police intelligence, and are performing a range of tasks including visiting addresses, traffic stops, hotel checks and foot patrols. Their efforts were being con-

centrated around problem areas. “We are not only trying to deal with the crime after it happens. We’re trying to target the underlying issues. “I’m a firm believer in a victim focus, because unfortunately the victims are caused by the offenders and sometimes I feel we are more offender focused.” Mr Russell said the public could help protect themselves by taking simple steps such as locking their cars and houses and keeping valuables out of sight.

■ MT HUTT COLLEGE

Pupils to tackle bullying issues themselves By MylEs HuME

Myles.h@theguardian.co.nz

Sometimes adults just don’t get it. That’s why Mount Hutt College has taken on the district’s first youth advocacy scheme, giving pupils an approachable sounding board when faced with bullies and other issues. The pilot scheme is an initiative of Safer Ashburton’s Think First Project, seeing 22 Mount Hutt College pupils, from Monday, take on a youth advocacy role which fellow teens can approach to ask for help. “The aim is to get young people helping young people, and trying to break down the stigma in rural towns that it’s okay to find help,” Think First project co-ordinator John Hobbs said. A college youth advocate Lucy Schikker, 17, said sometimes teachers and parents just weren’t approachable. “I know I would feel a lot more comfortable going to someone who was my age, for example not all parents understand cyberbullying because they never had that when they were at school,” she said. The youth advocates, ranging from Year eight to 13, could be approached at lunchtimes or during other parts of the day, and would be responsible for referring affected pupils to agencies and supplying them with resources before following up with progress. Mr Hobbs and Methven youth mentor Juanita Richards spent yesterday training the advocates on scenarios they may encounter from next week.

Confidentiality was one of the vital aspects of the training, as pupils had to trust the advocates with their problems. Ms Richards believed it would become an important part of the school fabric.

“I think this is about being proactive, bullying is an issue in every school. “It’s not a big issue here but you get that underlying niggly stuff,” she said. “This will nip certain situ-

ations in the bud before it becomes an even bigger problem.” Mr Hobbs hoped to iron out the wrinkles as the scheme progressed, before rolling it out into other Mid Canterbury schools.

■ EA NETWORKS CENTRE

Water slide included in annual plan By Sue NewmaN

Sue.n@theguardian.co.nz

The future of the Ashburton aquatic centre’s water slide project is now in the hands of the community. Ashburton District councillors yesterday voted to add costs for the water slide proposal in the EA Networks Centre into next year’s budget, but it will be up to the community whether the project flies or fails. All up costs for the project could be as high as $2.5 million if two top-line water slides are installed, but the council is adamant it won’t be footing all of the bill. Councillors voted seven to six

Neil Brown

to let the project go through the annual process so the community would have a say. Part of the deal, however, will be that a share of the money needed for the water slides will

be raised by the community through the Ashburton Stadium Trust. By taking the project to the community through the annual plan, the upfront costs and ongoing costs would be spelled out, said councillor Neil Brown. “We then need to hear from the people of Ashburton if they want this hydroslide. Of course they want it but do they want to pay for it. With all the costs there they can decide.” Mr Brown wanted to tag the stadium trust’s contribution to the project at $1 million but councillor Don McLeod wanted formal discussions with the trust before an amount for community fundraising was set.

RATES RISING As the council begins its budget discussions for next year’s annual plan it is starting with an anticipated rate increase of 7.4 per cent. While the costs around the EA Networks Stadium are built in to next year’s budget (about $183 for each property in the Ashburton District), there is no provision made to pay for water slides. However, for each extra $1 million the council borrows, another $6.45 will be added to every annual rates bill to cover interest and debt repayment. This year’s rate increase burden will be carried largely by urban ratepayers, with their rates likely to rise by between 9 and 10 per cent.

■ CANCER FUNDRAISER

Preschool gets behind Relay for Life By ToNi williamS

toni.w@theguardian.co.nz

A group from Hannah n Henry’s Preschool will walk alongside the likes of Angels of Hope, Fairy Good Idea, Hawaiian Hulagens, Holy Walkamolies and Slip Slop Slappers next month in Timaru, all to support the same cause. The Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life. Hannah n Henry Preschool team captain Cherie Robinson said it was a worthwhile cause

they were able to support. So far 67 teams from Mid and South Canterbury had registered. The preschool had nine teachers and supporters lined up to walk the overnight event but more would be welcomed. If anyone wanted to get involved they could contact the preschool. However, the main focus of the team was to raise money. “We really want people to help us with cash donations.”

The preschool team fundraising effort had been aided with a take of winnings from two year old Greyhound, Quedrago, aka David to his friends, trained/ owned by preschool teacher Suzanne Fagan. Nicknamed Quedrago ‘Relay for Life dog’ on the track, 40 per cent of his winnings over the month of February was going to support the cause. A couple of wins had raised $800 so far. The preschool had also been

supported by Ashburton businesses with a range of products. Staff would hit the streets to raise extra money raffling off those products. The $2 tickets were on sale now. People wanting to support the team can go to relayforlife. org.nz and follow the links to support Hannah n Henry Preschool at the Timaru event. The relay takes place March 8 and 9 at Caroline Bay, Timaru.

Trust says there’s more funds out there By Sue NewmaN

Sue.n@theguardian.co.nz

More than $5 million has been pulled from the Ashburton community for the EA Networks Centre but fundraisers are confident there is more to come. Yesterday Ashburton Stadium Trust fundraising chair Chris Robertson nailed his flag to the fundraising mast when he told the Ashburton District Council he believed his team could raise $1 million towards water slides for the complex’s aquatic centre. Councillors voted to let what could be a $2.5 million project become part of the council’s budget for next year on the condition that the trust raised a yetto-be decided amount towards the project. By doing this they have thrown the project out to the community. When the draft annual plan is released for public comment people will have an opportunity to indicate whether they support the council moving ahead with the project, or not. While the council is taking a cautious approach and using community consultation to set parameters around the project, Mr Robertson said he was concerned that if fundraising did not start until after the annual plan process was completed in June, it would be too late for the water slides to be in place when the centre opened in mid 2015. “I know I’m a bull at a gate. We need a date rather than a fundraising campaign that drags on. “We need to get into this very fast and we need to get into it now, not in July. The community wants this,” he said. Mayor Angus McKay wasn’t buying into the bid for a speedy decision. “We need to consult with the community on this,” Mr McKay said. Councillors will now meet with the stadium trust to determine an achievable fundraising figure. When the draft annual plan is released for community consultation it will contain both up front and ongoing costs for the water slide project and their impact on rates.

■ ASHBURTON DISTRICT COUNCIL

Two groups under scrutiny By Sue NewmaN

sue.n@theguardian.co.nz

The activities of two organisations funded and run under the umbrella of the Ashburton District Council will come under closer council scrutiny. Both Grow Mid Canterbury and Experience Mid Canterbury receive funding from the council and are about to have tougher business planning and financial reporting requirements put in place. Yesterday district councillors hammered out the details of a new structure that will see both organisations have a council liaison committee to develop and approve their an-

nual work programme and budget. The organisations’ budgets will continue to be set by the council every three years when it reviews its long term plan. Currently the two organisations report six monthly to the council on their activities and performance against budget. The liaison committees will ensure councillors can play a much stronger role in ensuring the council is getting value for the money it invests. “It’s about tightening the noose, it’s about performance measures,” mayor Angus McKay said. “With the previous council I was under the impression

councillors wanted tighter controls on the money we grant to these organisations. This is about getting alongside those organisations and getting a handle on what they’re doing.” Several councillors, however, were not happy with the powers of the liaison committees. They wanted the full council to sign off annual budgets. Chief executive Andrew Dalziel said that liaison committees could only agree to budgets that were within the amount granted by the council. “If a group wants to spend more than their budget, then it has to come back to the council. The liaison groups will be

about accountability, about ensuring the community is getting a bang for its buck,” he said. “Keeping it the way you have at the moment, I’m not sure you’re going to get the results you want. The liaison committee would be empowered to represent council’s views and requirements.” While the organisations’ budgets were set three yearly, the council could still change the amount when it wrote its annual plan budget, Mr Dalziel said. “If they haven’t performed and your liaison committee says they’re not performing our grant could be cut.”

Five-car pile-up on West St By myleS Hume

Myles.h@theguardian.co.nz

A five-car pile-up at Ashburton’s busiest intersection is likely to see one motorist charged with a driving offence. Senior Constable Mike Jackson said a woman was taken to Ashburton Hospital with neck complaints following a large nose-to-tail crash near the West Street and Walnut Avenue roundabout around 12.30pm yesterday. The other four drivers emerged uninjured, after the driver of a vehicle allegedly rammed the back of a long queue, causing damage to three vehicles in front. A following vehicle also drove into the back of the queue. Traffic was reduced to one lane while Ashburton volunteer firefighters cleared the road, and tow trucks arrived to take away three of the vehicles. Mr Jackson said the driver of the vehicle which first crashed

into the queue would likely be charged over the incident. “We all know how congested

that intersection gets and that can cause issues, so it’s just a matter of being careful and

aware in the peak hours of lunch time, in the morning and in the afternoons,” he said.

■ WHALEOIL BLOGGER SENDS FLOWERS

by Whaleoil blogger Cameron Slater yesterday with a card thanking her for promoting Mr Slater and his blog in Parliament. Ms King had attacked the blog in Parliament on Wednesday. “I’ve always enjoyed receiving flowers, and it was nice

to be thanked by Cameron for promoting his blog. But I think his blog must be in financial trouble as it’s the most miserable bunch of flowers I’ve ever received. The flowers will not require me to put them on my Pecuniary Interests register.” She said there were five ger-

beras and one lily, with six chocolates attached. She would not throw them into the gutter because it was not the flowers’ fault they had come from Mr Slater, so she would put them somewhere where others could enjoy them. - APNZ

■ CHRISTCHURCH HIGH COURT

In brief

‘She will never walk streets’ By Cullen Smith Murdered Christchurch man Philip Nesbit’s sister says she will ensure his killer never gets out of jail. Speaking after Helen Milner, 50, was sentenced to jail for at least 17 years, Lee-Anne Cartier said the minimum nonparole period for Milner’s life sentence didn’t matter. “She’s got a life sentence,” Ms Cartier said, clutching her brother’s ashes in a small white casket. “I’ll attend every Parole Board hearing and she will never walk the streets of New Zealand again.” Milner, dubbed the “Black Widow”, was found guilty by a jury in December of murdering her 47-year-old second husband in 2009 by poisoning him with the allergy drug Phenergan. She was also found guilty of attempted murder. In the High Court at Christchurch yesterday, Justice David Gendall sentenced Milner to the statutory life imprisonment and imposed a non-pa-

Helen Milner - the Black Widow

role period of 17 years. He also sentenced her to six years’ jail on the attempted murder charge, to be served concurrently, and gave her a “first strike” warning. Justice Gendall said Milner’s offending was committed “simply for financial gain” and to rid her of a husband she no longer wanted in her life.

He said Milner previously told many people she wanted to kill Mr Nisbet and noted that was “rare” in cases of murder. It may have been that she talked herself into killing him after the suicide clause in her husband’s life insurance policy had expired. Mr Nisbet was “particularly innocent”, he said, and had giv-

en Milner no reason to want him killed. Justice Gendall agreed with the Crown’s submission that Milner’s actions were “a carefully thought through and calculated plan with callous disregard for Mr Nisbet’s family and friends”. Milner murdered Mr Nisbet and then wrote several suicide notes to deceive his family, friends and police into believing his death was self-inflicted. Police initially decided the death was suicide, and only reopened their investigation after a coroner raised doubts. Murder by poisoning was regarded as “the most despicable of crimes”, Justice Gendall said. Several members of Mr Nisbet’s family read victim impact statements during the sentencing. Milner might have got away with murder had it not been for painstaking detective work by Ms Cartier, who raised concerns with a coroner in late 2010, leading police to reopen their investigation. - APNZ

Hype youth centre spreads into Methven By myleS hume

A gunman who shot a cow in its rear on a West Coast farm, leaving it for dead, will have their firearms licence revoked if police catch them. Greymouth police Senior Constable Mike Tinnelly said the animal was shot some time on Tuesday night and a vet had to be called out to put it down. Mr Tinnelly said the 550kg red and white hereford would have been easily recognisable as it was in a paddock close to the road. - APNZ

Search stepped up More resources are being put into the search and rescue operation for a missing 67-year-old Mosgiel woman. Police said they were becoming increasingly concerned for the safety of Gae Denise Pantel, who has been missing since Tuesday evening. She had been staying with friends in Riccarton Road East, East Taieri. She also suffers from ill health and was believed to have been confused in recent days, police said. - APNZ

Body in river A body has been found in the Waikato River near Taupo, and police believe it is that of a young man who went missing while swimming in the river near Riverside Park yesterday. The 17-year-old was swimming with a friend when he got into difficulty, police said. After diving into the river the man surfaced for a while then disappeared. The police were called, and police along with Harbourmaster and Coastguard personnel found him half an hour later. Police and Victim Support are supporting his friends and family. No further details about the teenager will be released at this stage, police said. - APNZ

Auckland third best

Myles.h@theguardian.co.nz

The Hype Youth Health Centre is branching out to Methven, giving youth in the town access to resources for a range of modern day issues. Co-ordinator Poppy CooperVear will be travelling west every second Thursday where youth aged 12 to 24 can visit to confidentially discuss issues such as stress, alcohol, sex, drugs and get advice on Work and Income as well as other groups. Pamphlets on a raft of issues can also be picked up. The pop-up centre has been operating in Ashburton for several years now, but it has often proved a little far out of reach for Methven teens. “I think sometimes there is an expectation that Methven people can get to Ashburton to access services, but it is not always that simple for the youth here,” Methven youth mentor Juanita Richards said. Several Mount Hutt College pupils made their way to the small room at the centre’s opening yesterday. Sixteen-year-old Matthew Jones said it was positive to have another option for Methven youth. “I think it should be well-

Auckland’s quality of life has been rated third best in the world in the latest Mercer Quality of Living survey. The City of Sails also came third in the previous survey in 2012, with Vienna and Zurich still the top two picks. The survey ranks cities on factors such as culture and environment, political stability, safety, infrastructure and ease of doing business. This year’s survey also found Wellington was the 12th most liveable city, one place higher than the last survey, while Sydney remained steady at 10th. The highest ranked Asian city was Singapore, at 25. - APNZ

■ ASHBURTON INITIATIVE

Homework hub operational term 2 By Myles HuMe

Myles.h@theguardian.co.nz

A homework hub aimed at helping pupils who struggle to do work at home is expected to be up and running next term. The principals of Ashburton Intermediate, Hampstead and Netherby schools are working with the Ministry of Education to establish an initiative that is being dubbed the Hakatere Homework Hub. Ashburton Intermediate principal Gavin Cooper said it would look to assist at least 15 years five to eight pupils from the schools, who may struggle to get support at home where they may have limited access to internet. “We are aiming to get it going next term, we are working through the ap-

plication stages with the ministry at the moment,” he said. The Maori and pacific population in urban Ashburton has ballooned in recent years, making the initiative important if local schools are to target what the ministry considers priority areas. “Hopefully we are able to do it because it will be really helpful for some students,” Mr Cooper said. It is expected to be compulsory for selected pupils. Funding would be set aside for a teacher to run the programme after school and provide afternoon tea. It would likely be held in a community facility at Ashburton Intermediate which has access to the internet.

The salmon are out there Former Ashburtonian Jim Allan proves there is salmon in the Rakaia River with a two catch limit reached yesterday, just a couple of kilometres down from the State highway bridge. But that was all he would say. It was reported that anglers had difficulty catching fish with flooding throughout late December and January and now the rivers were too low and clear, with few fishing holes. But Mr Allan thought the time for catching had come. The good sized salmon were about 13

and 9 pounds and destined for the smoker. Mr Allan was in the district on holiday from his new home of Rotorua. He was a former manager at Placemakers Ashburton and the catch was part of his annual pilgrimage south to catch up with family, and fish the Rakaia in search of salmon. It was his first morning outing on the river. The salmon fishing season had passed a traditional January peak, however anglers had until late March before the season closed.

■ ASHBURTON BUSINESS ESTATE

Council to re-evaluate section sales By Sue NewmaN

Sue.n@theguardian.co.nz

Ashburton’s north east business estate is about to be re-valued, repriced and remarketed. The business estate opened in 2011 and in the years since, 10 of the 42 lots available have sold, with more sales in the pipeline. The Ashburton District Council, however has opted to take a fresh look at the way in which those sections are marketed and will introduce the option of leasing as a way to encourage a faster uptake. Yesterday district councillors met and agreed to have the remaining sections revalued and to offer these with the option of purchase

or lease. “We’ve just been carrying on selling sections out there and it’s time we looked at where we’re going and how we’re going and that we also look at a new pricing structure,” councillor Darryl Nelson said. Currently every offer on a section has to be individually approved by council and that can mean a wait of up to six weeks for a potential buyer. The council wants to speed this process up by having established, up-to-date prices set for each lot. Leasing could be a good option to as a way of encouraging new businesses into the estate, Mr Nelson said. Sales at the business estate had not matched expectations, council-

lor Ken Cutforth said. “Leasing just defers the pain over a period of time. We should be giving sales another crack,” he said. It was all about giving businesses options, councillor Alan Totty said.

“At least, if it’s leased we’ve got some income coming in to meet our payments on the money we’ve borrowed.” Councillors agreed to have the remaining sections in stage one of the business estate valued and a pricing

schedule set. It also agreed to have a long term lease agreement drawn up. “It’s time to take a look at our prices and it’s time to get a direction for the future,” councillor Neil Brown said.

■ CHINESE DELEGATION TOURS

Silver Fern Farms builds up trust with its customers A delegation of 45 people representing food marketing and distribution businesses across China has been in Mid Canterbury this week. The group has been in the country on a week-long tour, visiting Silver Fern Farms’ shareholders’ farms and food production plants in the North and South Islands. On Wednesday the visitors passed through Mid Canter-

bury, stopping at the co-operative’s Fairton processing plant. “This is the largest scale tour we have run for customers. “It’s an important way for us to build trust with our customers so they are confident in growing their trade with us,” Silver Fern Farms chief executive Keith Cooper said.

“Last year China became the co-operative’s largest export market by volume exported and by value. This is a critical market for us and one we need to manage well – this tour is part of the approach we’re taking to ensure we do just that.” The co-operative’s New Zealand branded retail range of lamb cuts will be on sale in Shanghai next month.

■ ASHBURTON DOG SHOWS

Show dogs put to the test Dog lovers from all over the South Island will be busy shampooing and trimming their prized pooches in preparation for the Ashburton Kennel Association’s shows this weekend. The all-breeds championships will be held over two days at the Allenton Rugby Club grounds on Melrose Road, with one best-of-show dog announced each day. The dogs will be judged

on confirmation according to their breed standards, by a panel of judges from Australia and Christchurch. Organisers are expecting 90 different breeds and about 400 dogs through the ring each day, with competitions starting at 8.30am. On Saturday, hounds, terriers, gundogs and toy dogs will be the first to be put through their paces, and Sunday’s show will kick off with gun-

dogs, toy dogs, utility and terrier dogs. The Ashburton Cadets will be hard at work today setting up the marquees, and will be back on Sunday to dismantle them, they will also cater for the event to raise money for their organisation. The shows are open to the public, but people should ask before patting dogs, and are reminded not to put fingers into dog cages.

A Sydney resident being held in Bali after a drug raid is stressed, sleeping on the floor and has had only one friend visit her cell, her lawyer says. New Zealander Leeza Tracey Ormsby, 37, remains in custody after being arrested in a police raid on a villa north of Kuta last Wednesday. Police allege they found her in possession of a marijuana cigarette. They then seized six tablets of hashish, seven tablets of MDMA, electronic scales, duct tape and wrapping plastic from the villa. Ormsby could be charged with distributing drugs, an offence that carries a maximum 20year jail term. - AAP

nated,” the spokesman added. The tank holds water filtered to remove caesium but which still contains strontium, a substance that accumulates in bones and can cause cancer if consumed. The accident came a day after TEPCO announced that one of the two thermometers in the lower part of the No.2 reactor pressure vessel is out of order. There were originally nine thermometers in the vessel, Kyodo News reported, but eight have now stopped working. TEPCO said it can still monitor the temperature of the area with the remaining thermometer, Kyodo News and the

Asahi Shimbun reported. The device was monitoring the temperature of fuel that has been kept in “a state of cold shutdown” to prevent a selfsustaining nuclear reaction criticality - the Asahi said. Yesterday’s leak announcement is the latest in a long line of problems the utility has had with waste water at the plant. TEPCO poured thousands of tonnes of water onto runaway reactors to keep them cool, and continues to douse them, but has to store and clean that water in a growing number of temporary tanks at the site. In August, TEPCO said around 300 tonnes of radioac-

tive liquid was believed to have escaped, an incident regulators said represented a level-three “serious incident” on the UN’s seven-point International Nuclear Event Scale. Two months later, the Fukushima plant had another leak of radioactive water containing a cancer-causing isotope, possibly into the sea. At that time, TEPCO said a barrier intended to contain radioactive overflow was breached in one spot by water contaminated with strontium-90 - a slow-decaying isotope produced during nuclear reactions - at 70 times the legal limit for safe disposal. - AFP

In brief

Radioactive water leaked A new leak of 100 tonnes of highly radioactive water has been discovered at Fukushima, the plant’s operator says after it revealed only one of nine thermometers in a crippled reactor was still working. The toxic water is no longer escaping from a storage tank on the site, said a spokesman for Tokyo Electric Power, adding it was likely contained, but the news is a further blow to the company’s already-battered reputation for safety. “As there is no drainage way near the leak, which is in any case far from the ocean, it is unlikely that the water has made its way into the sea,” he said. The tank, one of hundreds at the site that are used to store water contaminated during the process of cooling broken reactors, is around 700 metres from the shore. However, the water was highly radioactive, with a beta radiation reading “at 230 million becquerel per litre”, he said. The contamination level compares with government limits of 100 becquerels per kilogram in food and 10 becquerels per litre in drinking water. A becquerel is a unit of radioactivity. Beta radiation, including from cancer-causing strontium-90, is potentially very harmful to humans and can cause damage to DNA. But it is relatively easy to guard against and cannot penetrate a thin sheet of aluminium. “We are now in the process of recovering the leaked water and the earth that it has contami-

husband of Corby’s sister Mercedes, gave him a letter requesting permission for the interview. “I said to him that I don’t need to give you another answer to that, because it’s all clear there’s no permission as has been instructed by the deputy minister,” he said. “Many times I have been told that it’s impossible (for the interview) to be allowed and my position is at stake because of that.” Mr Artha says Wayan then said he would go to the provincial office of the law and human rights ministry and ask them for permission instead.

“I told him, ‘Just go ahead. It’s impossible to get it’.” Corby was released from prison last Monday and has been out of public view since, staying at a five-star Seminyak resort. Mr Artha says he would prefer Corby leave the luxury villa and stay in Wayan’s family home, which is the address she put on her parole documents. Also staying at the villa are Seven Network staff, including her would-be interviewer, Mike Willesee, who has stressed there is not yet a deal with Corby. He has also talked down the multimillion-dollar price tag first attached to the tell-all. - AAP

Big day for Portugal The Portuguese are less than three months away from their big day May 17 - when they expect to get financial sovereignty back after three years of being told what to do by foreign bailout creditors. In return for the 78-billion-euro ($A119.91 billion) rescue that has since 2011 prevented the country’s bankruptcy, Portugal consented to an economic crash diet - deep cuts in pay and pensions and welfare rights, steep tax increases and an end to long-standing labour entitlements. Countries which share the euro currency are eager for Portugal to show it is financially fit again. Its recovery would help the bloc draw a line under its debt crisis and open the door to growth that could have a beneficial knock-on effect around the world. - AP

15 killed in airstrike Pakistani jets have bombed Pakistani Taliban hideouts in a northwestern tribal district, killing at least 15 people, security officials say.

Still tough for some Coen Lammers EDITOR

T

he third anniversary of the February 22 earthquake will be a different experience for each of us. Some people in Mid Canterbury that were not affected or have moved into the Canterbury region since 2011, may wonder what the fuss is all about. For others though, who were at the epicentre, or had fatalities or injuries among family or friends, that particular Tuesday in 2011 may just seem like yesterday. After three years, we have reached an interesting stage that could split the community. Many have moved on and are keen for the wider community to move, but for some that may not be easy. The pain and trauma may have subsided but is still just under the surface for those who suffered personal loss. Some will dread the date coming up and having to see pictures flashing across our television screens. Several people and businesses in Mid Canterbury are eager to move on, but are still tied up in building new premises, demolishing old ones or battling with insurance. The impact of the earthquakes, and especially the Big One on February 22, is bigger than anything most of us have experienced. Not unlike World War Two, the earthquakes have affected an entire generation of Cantabrians, and it may take a generation to deal with, and get over, the effects of this period. While thousands still battle insurance, depression or other dramas, there are also plenty of signs to give us hope and inspiration for the future. Dozens of buildings have come down around the district, but those spaces are starting to be filled, bringing back life to those corners. The opening of the Nandos restaurant in Holmslee Square on Burnett Street was just one of those milestones and perfectly timed in this week of remembrance. Despite all the damage and drama, we do need to move on and thankfully most of us have been able to. Some will take a bit longer than others, so let’s show some patience and compassion for those who may be doing it tough on the day of the third anniversary.

When the boys go on holiday Phill Hooper OFF THE AIR

I

’m still catching up. Well this week has been a bit of a blur to be honest. The Hooper boys (including father) had our annual get-together in Australia last weekend. It was an early flight out on Thursday morning to Brisbane to pick up brother Greg, then on the road to Coolum Beach. The flight with Virgin Australia was on time and the service was great. Everything was going to plan UNTIL we picked up our rental car, a two-door Hyundai hatchback. I wasn’t worried about us four blokes and our luggage fitting in. I was worried about us four blokes, our (carry on) luggage and THREE 20-LITRE KEGS OF HOME-BREW BEER fitting in.

But we managed to get them in after plenty of boot rearranging attempts. I must admit I was relieved, not only because I love Greg’s homebrew, but my brothers had that look in their eyes that I may be sacrificed for the beer. Before all that drama we had another major hurdle to get over, which three beers do we take? Greg always has a selection of five beers on tap at once. I hate to admit this (please don’t tell him I wrote this) he is very good at brewing beer and he has the trophies to prove it. Last year he won Brisbane and Queensland brewing titles and finished fifth overall at the Australian finals. He takes it very seriously! He mills his own grain and adds natural products to his beer, ending up with products like Banana Lager, Pumpkin Draught and a Coconut Old Dark. He brews the beer into the afore mentioned 20-litre kegs and then runs them through a fridge with five taps on it. We got the grand tour of

his newish home shortly after arriving and it was no surprise that the first room we viewed was the bar/brewery. Some people apparently call them garages and even park their vehicles in them! There is no way exhaust fumes are allowed anywhere near Greg’s brewing process. After a careful selection process we chose a keg of Porter (with a nice chocolate after taste), a Pale Ale and a Wheat Beer. That should easily last us the five days we thought! Coolum Beach is about an hour-and-a-half north of Brisbane (in a rather full Hyundai). We arrived in Coolum to 32°C at about 11am and thought a swim for an hour at the beach would be ideal before lunchtime, this had nothing to do with Greg’s suggested time it would take the beer to settle after sloshing around during the trip north. That was a pure fluke! We were hosted by Mark’s brother-in-law, former Ashburton bloke Aidan Tutty. He was an outstanding host. Not only is he a top bloke, he

also has two TVs in the lounge so we could watch the news and a documentary at the same time (or both horse racing channels at once) a beer fridge JUST tall enough to hold two 20-litre kegs and a bed each. Coolum Beach is a super swimming/body surfing beach and at 26°C it certainly didn’t shrink parts of the anatomy like Waikuku Beach did over Christmas! It was a super long weekend and great to have another Hooper boys’ catch-up. Next time we book a flight home that arrives at 12.30am (home at 2am) I think I’ll take the next day off work!

■ TENON FORECAST

First cash return in a decade By Pattrick Smellie Wood mouldings manufacturer Tenon expects to resume cash returns to shareholders in the second half of the current financial year after achieving a long-sought end to years of losses. Tenon broke even on a net basis in the six months to December 31 as the North American housing market starts to recover, the Taupo-based company said in a statement. Whether cash will be returned by dividend or share buyback is undetermined as yet, but it will be the first cash return to shareholders in a decade, when Tenon returned $670 million to shareholders relating to sales of the former Fletcher Forests timber estate. The company has not paid a dividend since it was listed as Fletcher Forests. A decision on the form of cash return “will depend on a number of factors, including our

core goal of seeing our share price lift,” said chief executive Luke Moriarty. The company also announced a “significant upgrade” in its forecast for earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation at the mid-point of an average United States housing market recovery, from US$35 million to US$45 million. The forecast assumes 1.7 million US housing starts a year and a US-New Zealand dollar exchange rate of 70 US cents, compared with a rate this morn-

year. He reiterated directors’ view that Tenon shares remain undervalued, based on an Edison International Research report prepared for the company last year that put a value range on the shares of between $2.05 and $2.55, assuming it can access tax losses built up over the last decade. Tenon shares have traded as low as 50 cents apiece during the long recession in the US housing market, which began with the 2006 sub-prime mortgage market collapse and helped cause the 2008 global financial crisis. Their low point in the last year was 86 cents, in May, but the shares have climbed 47 per cent in the last 12 months to close on Wednesday at $1.47.

ing of 82.95 US cents and an internal hedging rate of 80 US cents at Tenon. “Key indicators point to ongoing job recovery in the US economy, combined with rising home prices and pent-up housing demand,” Moriarty said. “This has already seen a recovery in new home construction levels, but only to levels equivalent to the bottom of previous cycles. “In others, over the past 50plus years, US housing starts have been above the current

level for almost 90 per cent of the time.” However, there were now “headwinds” in the US market, including the impact of the US Federal Reserve’s tapering programme to reduce monetary stimulus and severe winter weather, which has affected activity. For the six months under review, the company turned over US$197 million, up from US$174 million in the same period a year earlier, to produce ebitda at the six month mark of US$3 million. In the prior period, Tenon recorded an ebitda loss of US$1 million. The company confirmed its “objective” this year to double the US$5 million ebitda achieved in the last full financial year. The current period’s breakeven net result compares with a US$2 million loss in the first six months of the last financial

Procurement cons affect 1 in 5 By Suze metherell

One in three New Zealand businesses have been victims of fraudsters, according to a global survey, down from 49.5 per cent in 2011, although procurement related fraud is on the rise, reflecting the rebuild of Christchurch and more companies doing business offshore. PwC’s 2014 Global Economic Crime Survey asked more than 5000 respondents in 95 countries, including 82 kiwis, about their experience with fraud. Of New Zealand businesses surveyed 33 per cent said they had been the victim of fraud. The decline in fraud compared with the 2011 survey partly re-

flects increased corporate vigilance in the wake of the global financial crisis and high-profile prosecutions including pyramid scheme fraudster Bernard Madoff in New York and Wellington financier David Ross. “You can infer the lower levels of fraud are because there are more corporate controls since the GFC when they were stripped right back,” Eric Lucas, PwC forensic services partner said. “There are quite reasonable levels of identifying fraud.” He said despite the apparent decline Kiwis must “maintain a watchful eye” as increased technology use gave more opportunities for would-be con-artists. There had been an increase in

tip-off procedures, with 71 per cent of surveyed companies reporting they had a whistleblowing mechanism within their company. Procurement fraud had affected 19 per cent of local businesses surveyed and ranged from playing favourites with tenders, taking kickbacks from suppliers or contractors and readjusting orders. “It goes right through the supply chain,” Lucas said. “We included procurement fraud for two reasons, partly because of the Canterbury rebuild, and partly because a lot of organisations outsource parts of their business these days.” - APNZ

■ INDEX RECORDS FALL

NZ consumer confidence slips New Zealand consumer confidence fell from its highest level in seven years this month, while remaining elevated, amid a pickup in inflation expectations and the prospect of interest rate increases. The ANZ Roy Morgan consumer confidence index fell to 133 from 135.8 in January. Both the current conditions index and future conditions index slipped back 3 points, to 127 and 137.1 respectively. The decline wasn’t enough to dent ANZ New Zealand’s assessment that elevated consumer confidence points to the

potential for strong economic growth, as its seasonally adjusted measure showed a slight improvement to a seven-year high. “It’s now well flagged that interest rates are set to move up - a typical bug-bear for sentiment,” said ANZ chief economist Cameron Bagrie. “However, that dynamic looks to be being usurped by the combination of rising asset prices, firming employment prospects, more people participating in the labour force, a falling unemployment rate and reasonable income growth.” The survey shows prices in general are ex-

pected to rise an annual 3.5 per cent in the next two years, up from 3.3 per cent in last month’s survey, while house prices are seen rising 4 per cent, down from 4.2 per cent in January. A net 47 per cent of those surveyed say it is a good time to buy a major household item, down from 50 per cent last month. Those who felt better off financially than a year ago eased to a net 7 per cent from 11 per cent, while those expected to be better off in a year’s time fell to 36 per cent from 41 per cent. - APNZ

■ US$19BN DEAL

In brief

Facebook grabs WhatsApp Facebook is buying mobile messaging service WhatsApp for US$19 billion in cash and stock, by far the company’s largest acquisition and bigger than any that Google, Microsoft or Apple have ever done. The world’s biggest social networking company said yesterday that it is paying $12 billion in Facebook stock and $4 billion in cash for WhatsApp. In addition, the app’s founders and employees - 55 in all will be granted restricted stock worth $3 billion that will vest over four years after the deal closes. The deal translates to roughly 9 per cent of Facebook’s market value. In comparison, Google’s biggest deal, Motorola Mobility, stood at $12.5 billion, while Microsoft’s largest was Skype at $8.5 billion. Apple, meanwhile, has never done a deal above $1 billion. The price stunned Gartner analyst Brian Blau. “I am not surprised they went after WhatsApp, but the amount is staggering,” he said. Facebook likely prizes WhatsApp for its audience of teenagers and young adults who are increasingly using the service to engage in online conversations outside of Facebook, which has evolved into a more mainstream hangout inhabited

One way to survey whales is to circle above them in a small plane and count. That’s a risky business though and finding a way to automate the count would be a good idea. The DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-2 platform uses extremely high-resolution satellite pictures and image-processing software to detect whales on or near the ocean’s surface. Tests with counting southern right whales off the coast of Argentina showed the automated count captured 89% of the whales spotted in a manual search of the images. Researchers hope that higher resolution satellite images and improved image processing will boost that accuracy and allow researchers to track other species and in more locations. - NZH

Point and shoot

by their parents, grandparents and even their bosses at work. “This is a bet on the future for Facebook,” Blau said. “They know they have to expand their business lines. WhatsApp is in the business of collecting people’s conversations, so Facebook is going to get some great data.” In that sense, the acquisition makes sense for 10-year-old Facebook as it looks to attract its next billion users while keeping its existing 1.23 billion members, including teenagers, interested. The company has said it will develop a “multi-app” strategy, creating its own applications

that exist outside of Facebook and acquiring others. “Facebook seems to be in acknowledgement that people are using a lot of different apps to communicate,” said eMarketer analyst Debra Aho Williamson. “In order to continue to reach audiences, younger in particular, it needs to have a broader strategy ... not put all its eggs in one basket.” Facebook said it is keeping WhatsApp as a separate service, just as it did with Instagram, which it bought for about $715.3 million in two years ago. WhatsApp has more than 450 million monthly active users. In comparison, Twitter had

241 million users at the end of 2013. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says WhatsApp is on path to reach a billion users. “The services that reach that milestone are all incredibly valuable,” Zuckerberg said. WhatsApp, a messaging service for smartphones, lets users chat with their phone contacts, both one-on-one and in groups. The service allows people to send texts, photos, videos and voice recordings. It also lets users communicate with people overseas without incurring charges for pricey international texts and phone calls. It costs $1 per year and has no ads. - AP

New possibilities for mind-controlled quadcopter Thanks to researchers at the University of Minnesota you can fly a quadcopter just by thinking about it. You need an EEG cap with 64 attached electrodes that pick up

signals from the brain’s motor cortex. The signals go to a computer, are decoded, then sent via WiFi to control the quadcopter. Students testing the system

need 10 to 20 hours training on a virtual system before working with the real thing. In future a system like this could let people with disabilities more easily perform everyday tasks

such as using the Internet. Presumably training for one purpose, such as flying a quadcopter also develops the skills you need for something like operating a cursor. - NZH

Shooting something, or someone, on purpose involves correctly lining up the target in the sights before pulling the trigger. TrackingPoint rifles use a laser range finder to lock onto a moving target, add a virtual tag to the target and stop the gun from being fired if the target isn’t correctly lined up. Meanwhile, software in the scope compensates for 16 variables, including temperature, the expected spin drift of the bullet and the direction the wind is blowing. The US Army is testing the weapons for use in places like Afghanistan where military targets may be mixed in with civilians and accuracy is absolutely essential. If it helps reduce unintended shootings that must be a good thing. - NZH

Crime in dimension Police in Queensland will soon use the Zebedee handheld laser scanner to map crime scenes. The 3D scanner has already been used in mining, and in capturing the inside of the Leaning Tower of Pisa but will allow police to make better images of crime scenes. While someone walks through an area the LiDAR scanner moves on a spring that allows an inertial measurement unit to do its work, meaning no GPS is required. Software later takes the data points and prepares a 3D image from the capture. It’s not clear how fine the resolution is: had the vase been moved or not? - NZH

Phillipa McDonald gets twisted playing a backhand in her doubles match with partner Heather van der Kley at Mid Canterbury Badminton’s Thursday morning session at the Sports Hall yesterday. The club is into its third week of matches, including the Tuesday evening competition, and will play each week until early December.

McCullum moves up world rankings a result of his knock of 124. Ross Taylor remains the top ranked New Zealander but has moved down two spots to fifth after missing the second test due to the birth of son Jonty. Kane Williamson is ranked just outside the top 20 in 21st position. Jimmy Neesham enters to rankings at 59th following a century on debut at the Basin Reserve. He currently has a test average of 170 following scores of 33 and 127 not out. India’s Virat Kohli has moved up two places to a career-high of ninth, following knocks of 38 and 105 not out in Wellington, to break into the top 10 of the batting table for the first time in his career. South Africa’s AB de Villiers continues to top the bat-

ting table, followed by Kumar Sangakkara in second position and Shivnarine Chanderpaul of West Indies in third place. Tim Southee moved up a place to a career-best ninth in the test bowling rankings following his match haul of five for 143 in Wellington. Southee is now on 757 ratings points, just 10 behind eighth-ranked team-mate Trent Boult. Australia’s Mitchell Johnson jumped five places to fourth following his spectacular matchwinning haul of 12 for 127 in the Centurion test against South Africa. Vernon Philander has ceded the number one position in the bowlers’ table to teammate Dale Steyn after a 55-day reign at the top. - NZH

Abercrombie enjoying playoff race prefer to be sitting atop the table with the minor premiership locked up and playoff preparations underway. But perhaps the only positive of their 9-12 record sees the champs with a chance to play meaningful games in the remaining weeks, scrapping for wins and - in the best-case scenario - playing themselves into finals form. It’s a prospect their

success has denied the Breakers in their three championship campaigns, so they may as well make the most of a bad situation and enjoy the desperate dash to the finish line. “That’s what I’ve been telling people,” Abercrombie said. “The last few years have been great, but we find ourselves in a different position now, with a great shot of making the

The Tech Stags’ unbeaten start to senior cricket’s Muirhead Rosebowl faces its biggest test when they host Lauriston tomorrow. Lauriston are in a two-horse race with Methven for the Studholme Shield, the overall 45 over trophy, and need the win to keep the pressure on. Methven come to town to meet an Allenton side that has lost their last four matches, with their last win coming against Methven. Coldstream and the Tech Sharks both bounced back from opening round losses last week but only one will claim a second win out at Lowcliffe.

The Breakers typically spend the final month of the season with their feet up, watching from safety the mad scramble for playoff places. This year, though, they are right in the thick of that frantic race and, starting in Wollongong tonight, Tom Abercrombie is finding the whole experience a bit of fun. Of course the Breakers would

Mid Canterbury is out to finish their Hawke Cup Campaign on a high when they take on South Canterbury in Timaru this weekend. Mid Canterbury has suffered first innings defeats to North Otago, Otago Country and Southland so far but would like to finish with a win against their southern neighbours. Mid Canterbury has scored first innings totals of 172, 207 and 130 so scoring in the vicinity of 300 is in order if they bat first on a generally batter-friendly Aorangi Oval, but the bowlers will still need to deliver. Robbie Polson has been in hot form at club level of late and can hopefully transfer that to the longer representative match. The Print brothers, Richard and Jono, return to the side with Richard set to shoulder the bowling attack in the absence of Bevan Ravenscroft. Canterbury under 17 representative Dion Biggs has also been brought into the side that will again be captained by Matt Winter. Mid Canterbury: Matt Winter (C), Robbie Polson, James Southby, Jono Print, William Southby, Bo Houston, Matt Tait, Tom Meyrick, Richard Print, Sean Stagg, Dion Biggs.

New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum’s spectacular matchsaving knock of 302 in the Wellington test against India has helped him jump eight places to a career-best 12th in the latest ICC player rankings for test batsmen. McCullum, who became the first New Zealand batsman to score a triple hundred, helped draw the second and final test in Wellington on Tuesday, to thereby win the series 1-0. McCullum now shares 12th position with Australia’s David Warner. McCullum’s partner in a world record sixth-wicket partnership worth 352, BJ Watling, has also moved up the rankings, jumping three places to 45th as

playoffs but really with a lot of work left to do. It makes for an exciting run home and I think it’s something for the crowds and public to really get behind.” The New Zealand public will first have to follow Abercrombie’s advice from the comfort of their couches, with the Kiwi club across the ditch this weekend for a decisive double-header. - APNZ

The Methven Trotting Club hosts the Hororata Trotting Club’s Annual meet in Methven today. Hororata Trotting Club had to look for an alternative venue to Addington Raceway, where they have raced since 2002, due to the Hollies rocking out CBS Arena and the Crusaders kicking off their Super Rugby campaign against the Chiefs at AMI Stadium. That has provided a rare weekday race meet for Methven which usually races on Sundays. First race is set down for 12.25pm.

Two more years The NZRL see Stephen Kearney as their Sir Graham Henry and are convinced he can do with the Kiwis what Henry achieved with the All Blacks. Kearney will today be confirmed as Kiwis coach for the next two years after seeing off challenges from David Kidwell, Richie Blackmore and Australian Glenn Morrison. He was the favourite throughout the entire reappointment process, given the level of support he enjoys in the corridors of the NZRL and with the players, and talks about having “unfinished business”. That might involve holistic goals but the biggest one is becoming more competitive with Australia and, ultimately, winning the next World Cup. - APNZ

Perry up for huge opportunity BY JONATHAN LEASK

JONATHAN.L@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Tim Perry is pumped up for his Crusader debut against the defending champion Chiefs in their super rugby opener in Christchurch tonight. The former Mid Canterbury prop has been given the run on start to make his debut for the franchise. “I’m pretty stoked. It was a bit of a surprise,” Perry said. “I’ve been given an opportu-

nity through a bit of hard work and I’m obviously excited and keen to make the most of it.” It is a big opportunity for Perry, with All Black Wyatt Crocket on the bench behind him, and his competition for a spot on the match day squad, Joe Moody, not due back until mid-march as he recovers from an ankle injury suffered in the ITM Cup final. As well as getting his first start with the franchise Perry will have the added bonus of do-

ing it at home, with some family and friends set to be in the crowd. “It’s awesome. I’m controlling a bit of excitement. We had the captains run there [yesterday] and I’m looking forward to running out for the home region so I can’t wait for that.” It is set to be a night of firsts as he will prop up against big boy Ben Tameifuna for the first time as well as facing the Chiefs for the first time.

“I haven’t been up against him before. He wasn’t playing for Waikato when we played them in the ITM Cup for Tasman and I didn’t get a run against the Chiefs last year.” The Chiefs pose a strong first up challenge but one the Crusaders, and Perry, are up for. “They are a championship winning side so should be a big task but I’m really looking forward to it.” If things go well this week-

end, he can stake a claim for one of the two game-day loosehead propping berths. However, should at some stage Perry not be required by the Crusaders he could be back in the blue, running around for Rakaia in the Combined Country Cup. “I could play for them if I get an opportunity to. “I haven’t set anything in concrete but that is what I’m thinking.”

Watters Cup final replay comes early BY JONATHAN LEASK

JONATHAN.L@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

A replay of the 2013 Watters Cup final kicks off this year’s Combined Country Cup senior rugby competition. Watters Cup champions Rakaia host Methven in section one on the season’s opening day on April 5. This year the local derbies in the combined competition will also double as Watters Cup matches as they have in the past. The Watters Cup itself may be a long way off, but up for grabs will be the Max Gilbert Challenge Trophy and the Dave White Memorial, both played for between the top two teams from the previous season. Rakaia won all three matches against Methven in 2013, having come into the season

Friday, February 21, 2014

without a win over Methven since 1978. Hampstead will also feature in section one and they head north to Ashley on opening weekend. Rakaia, Methven and Hampstead will also have to contend with two-time defending Country Cup champions Southbridge, Oxford, Prebbleton, Kaiapoi and Darfield during the round robin. Over in section two Celtic and Southern will go headto-head on the opening weekend and over the course of the rounds play against last year’s runners up Lincoln, Glenmark, Saracens, Waihora, Ohoka, West Melton and a newly amalgamated Burnham-Dunsandel-Irwell. The top four from each section play quarter-finals on June 7 with the grand final on June 21.

Benji benched Daily Events BY PATRICK MCKENDRY Benji Marshall has been happy with only one of his three pre-season matches since his switch from league, so coach Sir John Kirwan’s decision to start him on the reserves bench against the Highlanders has come as a relief. “We had a bit of a meeting and he sat down and told me what his plan was,” Marshall said yesterday. “I was actually going to go to him and tell him I wasn’t ready and not that confident. We came to a mutual decision that there was no rush.” The former Kiwi and Wests Tigers playmaker started at No10 in all of the Blues’ three pre-season losses, with a short run at fullback in the final match against the Chiefs in Rotorua giving him a boost. He will cover both positions under the roof in Dunedin on Saturday night. - APNZ

YOUR STARS by Forecasters

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20) As your financial instincts kick in you’ll notice the focus is more on your immediate money matters, but without the usual financial tension. TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21) As the Moon stirs up emotional responses to relationship matters you’ll find it easy to find your voice, with a breakthrough possible. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 22) An alliance between income, work and career forces brings a boost in confidence, but also intuitive hunches and gut feelings that need to be trusted. CANCER (JUNE 22 – JULY 24) As your home and professional lives naturally work to establish the right balance, the more you can help them out the better. LEO (JULY 24 – AUG 23) The only difference to where things stood on the home front at the start of the week and where they are now is how easy it is to stay in the moment. VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 23) There is a chance to get past the small talk today and get to the heart of what matters, with your relationships the first to benefit. LIBRA (SEP 23 – OCT 23) While the same forces will remain in play on the income, work and career fronts, the dynamics are shifting and the roadblocks are clearing. SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) While life is due to become a lot busier and more work focused you’re in a much better position to find a balance between work and play. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) In her final weeks in your income sector Venus is working to boost your confidence, knowing the key to income growth is believing in yourself. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) If there was ever a time to have communication lines open it’s now, with the door open to second chances on the relationship front. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) It’s the Moon’s professional instincts that allow you to bring all the different strands on the income, work and career fronts together. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) In the early days of your birthday month everything is going to seem very different, with a new sense of adventure and playfulness in the air.

College swim records tumble BY JONATHAN LEASK

JONATHAN.L@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Matthew Harford was the superstar of the Ashburton College swimming sports yesterday. Harford set four new records competing in the year 9 boys, with 11 new records set on the day. In the one length backstroke he clocked 19.47, breaking the record by a whopping three seconds. In the three length backstroke he broke the 1989 record by a huge nine seconds, eclipsing 1:14.47 with his 1:05.31 which is in fact faster than the senior boys’ record. He set the record twice in the one length freestyle, beating 18.21 seconds in the heat with his 17.22 and then went 0.02 quicker in the final. His fourth record came in the three length freestyle with a four second improvement on 1:01.45, with his 57.69. Jake O’Grady set two new marks of his own, including breaking a 28-year-old record previously owned by his relative Stuart Doig (his mother’s cousin), eclipsing Doig’s 16.20 by 0.1 seconds. Last year he broke the 27-year-old record owned by Doig in the three length freestyle which he improved on yesterday by 0.4 setting a new mark at 57.44. Mathew Clough also claimed a record in the year 9 boys’ one length backstroke with a time of 23.10 to beat 23.63. The Green House boys’ year 9 relay team then put their name to two records, in the freestyle and medley relays.

Year 9 Boys: Matthew Harford (Runner up – Matthew Clough) Year 9 Girls: Bailey Tait (Runner up – Maggie Tarry) Year 10 Boys: George Howden (Runner up – James Prendergast) Year 10 Girls: Sophie Beckley (Runner up – Tori Watson) Year 11 Boys: Jonathon Stevens (Runner up – Jayden Reid) Year 11 Girls: Lucy Clough (Runner up – Katelyn Grey) Year Sen Boys: Jake O’Grady (Runner up – Adam Tupper) Year Sen Girls: Caitlin Johnstone (Runner up – Brittney Davis)

Ninja Cup ride awaits for Bailie BY JONATHAN LEASK

JONATHAN.L@THEGUARDIAN.CO.NZ

Superbike racer Bailie Perriton (right) is a mixture of worry and excitement at the moment. Perriton has an appeal hearing in Wellington today to decide whether he regains his championship standing at the top of the New Zealand 250 production series after being stripped of points from an alleged technical infringement in the second round at Levels Raceway in January. The excitement is the main factor on his mind at the mo-

ment, as he has secured a chance to compete in Australia next month. He will ride a Kawasaki Ninja 300 in the FX Ninja Cup in the Australian Superbike Championship. He was approached by top NZ Superbike rider Sloan Frost and his ESPC Services Pty Australia Team. Following Perriton’s commanding performance at Levels, where he beat international competition, including Junior European Cup champion Jake Lewis, and set the new lap re-

cord the team were keen to have his services. The series runs from March to November, taking in five different tracks across Australia and Perriton is looking forward to the first round at Wakefield Park NSW in just four weeks’ time. “I’m not intimidated by the tracks, or the competition, I have been watching lots of onboard video footage from all the tracks and have them in my head already,” Perriton said. He will be a very busy young man in March, racing in Aus-

Big night of firsts for Perry P18

tralia and then returning home to race consecutive weekends at Taupo and Manfeild in the final rounds of the 2014 NZSBK series. His goal is to become dual champion in New Zealand and Australia this season. The decision from today’s appeal will weigh heavily on his chances of securing the New Zealand title, with the 75 points he claimed from the three wins in Timaru in dispute but following a technical inspection of the machines he has since lost his points from the round.
