R18 shop to stay - for now BY MYLES HUME


Frustration is building as the Ashburton District Council revealed it cannot relocate the controversial store selling legal highs in Rakaia for months. And Rakaia Community Association chairman Neil Pluck has turned up the pressure this week, saying he wants action to “take the shop away from under the noses of kids and families”. At a Rakaia community meeting last month, Health Minis-

ter Tony Ryall said, via phone, councils can now implement a bylaw under the Psychoactive Substances Act to specify where approved legal highs can be sold. Yesterday, the ministry said the sooner the council developed its own local approved products policy (LAPP), the sooner it could restrict the location of the Adult Thingz shop in Rakaia. The act does not allow councils to ban the sale of legal highs. However, Ashburton District Council group manager envi-

ronmental services Jane Donaldson said council “does not have the power” to relocate the R18 shop because it was risky and too early to develop policies. “Not having the regulations (for the legislation) in place makes it problematic for councils to develop a policy as there is the risk the regulations will include provisions, as yet unknown, that could impact on the content of a policy,” Ms Donaldson said. “As a result most councils are waiting for the draft regulations

to be released (before the end of the year) before beginning to draft a policy.” Mr Pluck said the Rakaia community was disappointed nothing could currently be done. “The community association will continue to talk to Government, council and others,” Mr Pluck said. Ms Donaldson said councils had been frustrated at the way the legislation had been introduced, saying information from the Government had been murky, slow and incomplete.

The council plans to meet on November 28 over the Rakaia shop, and could work on policy options if the draft regulations are released before the end of the year. Associate Health Minister Todd McClay said the Ashburton District Council “could develop a bylaw right now”, and a number of councils were already working on developing their LAPPs. He expected regulations for the Psychoactive Substances Act to be finalised by March.

Five things that may interest you



The wrong David Cameron

Prime Minister John Key won his wager against British Prime Minister David Cameron for an All Black win, but lost an opportunity to gloat about it on social media by tweeting a message to the wrong David Cameron. The two prime ministers said they would make a donation and wear cufflinks from the opposing country if their team lost. After the All Blacks’ 30-22 win over the Lions, Mr Cameron tweeted: “@johnkeypm A bet’s a bet - I’ll be making a donation to Christchurch Earthquake Appeal and wearing Kiwi cufflinks. #ENGvNZ.” Mr Key tweeted: @DavidCameron. Dear David. Those NZ cuff links will look great. Please send pics.” However, his message fell flat when it was pointed out it had gone to the wrong David Cameron - an American from Oregon.




Odd man out He is the only All Black on tour yet to make his debut yet halfback TJ Perenara believes his extended wait to wear the black jersey, while frustrating, will only help him in the long run. The Hurricanes player broke his left ankle in a friendly match during the June break in 2012 and while he wasn’t affected by his injury in this year’s Super Rugby, a stress fracture in the same area caused by over-training ruled him out of the Rugby Championship. Now back to full fitness and presumably a candidate for the final tour game against Ireland in Dublin next Monday, Perenara reflected on his waiting brief behind Aaron Smith and Tawera Kerr-Barlow. “It is bittersweet. It’s awesome seeing the boys excel and take their opportunities and play the way the way they’ve been playing but as a footy player and athlete, you want to be playing every single game,” Perenara says.

Brand’s passport not empty enough British comic Russell Brand has cancelled his six-date South African tour after being blocked from entering the country because his passport didn’t have enough blank pages. Brand’s tour publicist said he was “refused permission to fly to South Africa because his passport didn’t contain the mandatory number of empty pages”. South Africa requires visitors to have at least two blank pages in their passport in order to enter the country. Local promoter Tony Feldman said tickets would be refunded.


Rumours denied Tim McGraw and Faith Hill (right) are brushing off divorce rumours as they power into a new round of Soul2Soul duet performances in Las Vegas. The country music royals sat close and joked with each other about tabloid headlines during an interview with reporters before their show at the Venetian casino. Hill acknowledges rumours have been running rampant lately.

Kiwi snapped JFK An unpublished photo of President John F. Kennedy minutes before his assassination sat on a desk in a Mission Bay home for 30 years. The photo, snapped by Kiwi man H. Warner King, will run on the front cover of the November 25 issue of Time magazine. It is 50 years this week since Kennedy’s murder shocked the world. Close and clear, King’s photo shows Kennedy and his smiling wife, Jackie, riding in the motorcade about 4km from the central Dallas street where the President’s life was taken by a bullet to the brain. King died in 2005 and his daughter Sonia contacted Time, her father’s favourite magazine, and sold the first rights to publish the photo.

Govt to sell stake in Air NZ

Baron Gordon is fighting an 18-month long paper war to have a hip replacement operation that will allow him to return to work. Photo Donna Wylie 141113-DW-014

Long wait for new hip By Sue NewmaN

Waiting for a hip replacement has cost Baron Gordon a season’s wages and hundreds of sleepless nights. His story began about three years ago with a simple pain in his groin, niggling, annoying but nothing he couldn’t live with. He and wife Julie moved to Ashburton in early 2011. A new doctor and a diagnosis – a hip replacement operation was needed. The February 2011 earthquake meant cancelled operations and he managed to find an early place in the orthopaedic surgery queue. He received a new hip and a new life. “I felt 20 years younger. It was marvellous but by the time I went back for my final check 12 months later I was starting to have pain in the other hip,” he said. That was in April last year. Eventually he went to the doc-

SHARE YOUR STORY The Guardian would like to hear from other people who are on long waiting lists for surgery and who are willing to share their stories with our readers. Contact Sue Newman, 3077958 or

tor and August 29 a letter was sent to his specialist requesting an appointment. A reply came two months later. It wasn’t the response he’d hoped for. “They said that on this occasion they weren’t able to offer me an appointment so I carried on limping and hobbling around at work.” He went back to his doctor on November 8. Another letter was sent. A reply came on November 26.

“The specialist has read your doctor’s letter and you have been placed on the semi-urgent waiting list for an appointment.” Mr Gordon was shattered. The pain in his hip was compromising his quality of life and remaining at work meant swallowing pain killers and eventually prescription morphine. The calendar flicked over to March and his doctor wrote a second letter asking for an appointment. He was asked to attend a clinic on May 23. “They told me I would be seen within six months. I’d already had to finish work on May 9 because I couldn’t walk up the steps any more so I couldn’t do my job.” July and another letter, this time asking him to have a pre-operation assessment. He passed and was referred to the orthopaedic booking list. “I was told they were confident I would be offered surgery within six months. I went up again on August 28 for a pre-

admission appointment and that’s the last I’ve heard. I must be getting close but they said if I’m not on the next list, I won’t be done before Christmas.” He estimates he’s lost $18,500 in wages, $1190 in superannuation contributions and $1500 in payments into Kiwisaver. If the operation doesn’t come before Christmas, you can double that, he said. He receives no financial support and his wife works overtime to keep the family afloat. He just wants to get back to earning money and paying taxes. ACC won’t have a bar of the cost of a private operation; hips are considered wear and tear. He’s not blaming the surgeons. He knows they want to carry out more operations but they don’t have the funding. And he just wants to get back to work. ‘I’ve been a freezing worker for most of my life, I love my work and I just want to get back there and be self-supporting.”

The Government has confirmed plans to sell down its stake in Air New Zealand, with 20 per cent of the shares on sale from today. The state owns 73 per cent of the national carrier, and plans to reduce that were tipped last week. Finance Minister Bill English and State Owned Enterprises Minister Tony Ryall confirmed yesterday the Government had started the process to sell 20 per cent of the shares, reducing its shareholding to about 53 per cent. Mr English said the sale to New Zealand and some offshore institutions would start today via a bookbuild process. “We expect the transaction to be completed by Tuesday evening.” Mr English said New Zealanders would be at the front of the queue for shares and it was confident in achieving the Government’s objective of at least 85 per cent New Zealand ownership. “Air New Zealand is different from the other companies in the Government share offers programme in that it is already listed on the New Zealand and Australian sharemarkets. “This means a different process will be used to reduce the Government’s shareholding.” Mr English said Treasury had sought proposals from its panel of financial advisers to carry out an off-market selldown via a bookbuild. Craigs Investment Partners, together with Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs, had been appointed to undertake the transaction and work with New Zealand sharebrokers in particular to target widespread New Zealand ownership. “Shares will be sold via a competitive bookbuild process to New Zealand sharebrokers for on-sale to New Zealanders, and to New Zealand and some overseas institutional investors,” Mr English said. “Shareholding sell-downs of this type are typically conducted off-market when the company’s shares are not trading on a stock exchange, to ensure the company’s share price is not affected by speculative trading.” Mr English said an off-market sell down was fast and efficient, which was important when working with a company that was already listed. - APNZ

In brief

Murray takes on new role By Erin TaskEr

For more than 25 years, the Ashburton Fire Station has been like Murray Cairns’ second home. Now, it’s his place of work. A member of the Ashburton Volunteer Fire Brigade for 30 years, Mr Cairns is now the fire risk management officer and volunteer support officer for the Ashburton, Rakaia and Methven volunteer brigades, based out of the Ashburton Fire Station. He started on Monday and already he’s been out and about in the community spreading the message about fire safety and helping install smoke alarms in homes. For Mr Cairns it’s his perfect job. It’s a job all about reducing fire incidents, and the consequences of fires; things he is passionate about. “The more education we can get people, it lowers the risk of them having serious fires,” he said. “I’m the ambulance at the top of the hill, rather than at the bottom.” His first week has been a big learning curve though, after 27 years working in the automotive industry. “A lot of the stuff I know, but it’s just getting my head around the computer and things like that,” Mr Cairns said. He’ll continue to serve the district as a volunteer firefighter, something he’s done since he was 23. “If the siren goes, then I stop this and I’m a volunteer firefighter again,” he said. Part of his new job will see him out in the community, spreading the fire safety message to community groups, from the elderly down to preschoolers. He’s looking forward to that part, particularly working with children, because getting the message through as early as possible was vital. He’ll also be on hand to do free home fire safety checks; all people need to do to secure his services is contact him at the fire station.

Ashburton Volunteer Fire Brigade members attended a small garage fire at Fairton on Friday at about 8pm. On Saturday they had a false alarm call-out, at about 1.30am, to a hangi under way on McMurdo Street.

Girl still missing Police are still trying to track down a girl who was snatched from her Taupo school by her father nearly two weeks ago. Te Awatea Lemon, 5, was taken from Wairakei Primary School on November 6, by her father Samuel Samson. He is not her legal guardian and does not have custody of her. Mr Samson remained on the run and police appealed to family and friends to help locate him and his daughter. - APNZ

Kaiapoi man killed A 40-year-old Kaiapoi man was killed when his car crashed north of Christchurch on Saturday. The 4WD vehicle left the road and rolled on Spencerville Road about 5.10pm. Constable Glen Alder said the driver died at the scene. - APNZ

Fire at Winz office A disgruntled customer is not being ruled out as the culprit behind a suspicious blaze at a Work and Income office in Auckland yesterday. Police said a man was helping with their inquiries after the fire damaged the entrance to the two-storey Winz building on Mountwell Cres in Panmure. Detective Senior Sergeant Paul Newman said firefighters had found the entrance well ablaze shortly before 4am yesterday. “Fire investigators at the scene determined that the fire was suspicious and could have been set up to an hour and a half before the alarm was raised,” he said. - APNZ

Injured boxer in good spirits after surgery Boxer Daniel MacKinnon was last night conscious and talking to his friends and family, less than 24 hours after undergoing surgery to relieve bleeding on his brain. The 30-year-old veteran pro had been left fighting for his life after losing a brutal light heavyweight contest with Robert ‘The Butcher’ Berridge on the undercard of David Tua’s fight against Alexander Usti-

Garage fire

nov in Hamilton. MacKinnon was due to be moved out of Waikato Hospital’s intensive care unit last night. His wife and close family members spent Saturday night at his hospital bedside. MacKinnon was stopped by Berridge in the 10th round of the fight in which both boxers were knocked down. MacKinnon ended the fight

on his feet when it was stopped by the referee and was able to conduct a post-fight interview in the ring. Around 15 minutes after the fight he complained of head pains as he was preparing to take a shower. He was then rushed to hospital where he underwent emergency surgery. His manager Ken Reinsfield last night said he was able to

speak to the boxer on the phone and he was in good spirits. “It was the best phone calls I think I have ever had - he is one tough individual. “On behalf of Dan and his family I would like to send our thanks to the Waikato Hospital surgeons and staff for their outstanding care during what was an incredibly difficult time,” he said. - APNZ

Police bosses have been forced to call in staff from a private IT firm to help answer soaring numbers of emergency calls. They had cut the numbers of 111 and *555 communication centre staff by “natural attrition”- but up to 18 are now being hired back on casual contracts to deal with an extra 35,000 calls already logged this year, and a further upsurge expected to swamp police over summer. The Police Association warns officers on the beat are paying the price for bureaucratic cost-cutting, and mistakes will be made as a result. The police communications centre famously botched its response to distressed calls from student Iraena Asher, refusing to send a police car to Piha and instead sending a taxi, to the wrong address. Asher disappeared, believed to have drowned. Her father Michael is still grieving. - APNZ

Record number of feral cats Woman By SuSan SandyS

A record number of feral cats have been caught and killed in an annual trapping operation in the lower Ashburton River. An Environment Canterbury contractor has reported to the Guardian that as many as 34 feral cats, 47 hedgehogs, 15 stoats and 10 ferrets were caught during 10 weeks of trapping which began in September. The contractor will now move into the upper reaches of the river, on the South Branch between the Blowing Point and

Buicks bridges. Environment Canterbury spokesperson Brent Glentworth said it was too early to comment on whether the record cat numbers were a concern. The trapping is undertaken to protect nesting endangered endemic birdlife on the river. Since 2003 when the operation began, not including this season, there have been 464 hedgehogs, 291 mustelids, and 276 feral cats caught and killed. If numbers were similarly high in the upper reaches of the

river then it may be a concern, and Mr Glentworth would need to look at total numbers once this year’s trapping was completed. Additionally, predator numbers could “switch and curve” according to various factors, for example a cat in one area having a litter of kittens automatically created an extra half dozen cats. Mr Glentworth sought to ease any public anxiety about pet or stray cats being caught in the traps. While some people aban-

doned their cats in isolated places, the majority of the cats caught were a “feral tabby colouration”, and it was likely that those caught had been in the wild for hundreds of generations. Cats had been released as a biocontrol measure for rabbits, along with mustelids, by acclimitisation societies in the 1800s. “The typical moggy, if taken down the river and let go, would probably be hanging around the closest possible house looking for jellymeat rather than turn totally feral,” he said.

dies after chase A woman killed in a crash after a police pursuit in Wanganui on Saturday night was caught driving drunk earlier in the evening, police say. The 21-year-old learner driver died instantly and six passengers were injured when the car crashed into a tree at an intersection in Gonville about 11.45pm. Central District police commander Superintendent Russell Gibson said the woman had been stopped by police and processed for excess breath alcohol earlier in the evening. “She was forbidden to drive for 12 hours and her car keys were also taken off her and held at the station until a sober person could retrieve them,” he said. “The woman has somehow got hold of another set of keys later in the evening and driven her vehicle.” The two-minute-long pursuit started after a police patrol spotted the car on Gonville Ave and suspected it was being driven by an intoxicated driver. The patrol car activated its flashing lights and siren but the driver failed to stop and sped up. The pursuit continued for 2.5km along several streets before the driver lost control as the car went around a bend from Kings Ave onto Swiss Ave. The driver was killed instantly when the car hit a tree. One front seat passenger and five passengers in the back suffered moderate to serious injuries injuries, none of them lifethreatening. They were being treated at Wanganui Base Hospital. Mr Gibson said officers following the vehicle came across the crash once they had rounded the bend. - APNZ


Good response after release of murder weapon photo Police says they have had a great public response after releasing a picture of a knife that was used to kill a Wellington mother. Rongmei Fan, known as Mei, was savagely attacked in her Miramar home on November 8, hours after dropping off her children at school. Her body was discovered by a friend two days later. Wellington police on Saturday released a picture of the 32cm

knife with a wooden handle with the word ‘CARVER’ stamped into the base which was used to kill the 37-year-old. Detective Senior Sergeant John van den Heuvel said while the image of the knife might be upsetting for some, knowing where it came from was key to finding the person responsible for killing Ms Fan. “The knife could have come from anywhere so we want peo-

ple to take a close look at the photo to see if they recognise it.” Yesterday, a police spokesman said a number of people had called the investigation team about the knife. “There’s been a great response from the public in terms of providing information about the knife and where it might have come from.” Investigators would work

through those lines of inquiry over the coming days, he said. Ms Fan died from multiple injuries consistent with a violent attack, Mr van den Heuvel said last week. “It is clear that this was a brutal and vicious attack that has taken the life of a young mother,” he said. A specialist police search team had also been scouring the area for any sign of a disguise police

believe the killer may have worn to gain access to her house. They were among a 40-strong team of police experts, including investigators and forensics, working on the murder case dubbed Operation Brussels. A dedicated 0800 number and email address has been established for the inquiry - 0800 348 348 or operationbrussels@ - APNZ

Driver stable after East Street crash By SuSan SandyS

A driver was in a serious but stable condition in Christchurch Hospital yesterday after a crash on East Street on Saturday. The 61-year-old man, from the Timaru area, was cut from his Honda Rafaga after 5pm by members of the Ashburton Volunteer Fire Brigade. He and a passenger in the car were ambulanced to Ashburton Hospital. The man was later that evening airlifted to Christchurch, while the passenger was discharged. Ashburton sergeant Janine Bowden said it appeared the crash had occurred when a driver performed a u-turn in front of an SUV. The SUV was travelling north on East Street, between Cox Street and Peter Street. The car had been facing north and pulled out in front of the approaching SUV to per-

form the manoeuvre. The road was closed until late evening while the Serious Crash Unit from Christchurch came down and undertook assessment of the scene. “In conjunction with local police the scene was examined and photographed,” Sergeant Bowden said. Reconstruction of the crash was under way, and it was too early to say if charges would be laid. “It’s one of those ones inquiries will continue.” Brigade station officer Murray Cairns said by the time the brigade arrived ambulance staff were already at the scene, and additionally a nurse had stopped and was in the back seat treating the injured driver. The brigade removed the roof and driver-side doors to create access for ambulance officers.

Typhoon survivors airlifted to safety A New Zealand Air Force cargo plane has airlifted about 240 Typhoon Haiyan survivors to safety and distributed aid in the Philippines. “We are supporting the international effort to get aid into the worst-hit areas, where there is a huge humanitarian need for food, water and shelter,” Squadron Leader Steve

Thornley said. “We also tried to get as many people as we can to better conditions in Cebu,” he said, referring to one of few cities in the region that escaped the wrath of the super storm. On Saturday, the RNZAF’s C-130 Hercules delivered about 30 tonnes of rice, tin food, water, emergency shelter, field hospital equipment and toi-

lets to the battered cities of Tacloban and Ormoc and the town of Guiuan as part of an international humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operation in the Philippines. “We will try to reach other hard-hit areas in coming days,” Squadron Leader Thornley said. - APNZ

RadioLive’s management has come under fire for failing to strongly sanction hosts Willie Jackson and John Tamihere, with a controversial Australian talkback host and a former contributor among those taking aim at the broadcaster. Jackson and Tamihere apologised but were taken off air last week for the rest of the year after advertisers boycotted the show following a controversial interview with ‘Amy’, who said she was a friend of a Roast Busters victim. Australian broadcaster Derryn Hinch, a controversial New Plymouth-born talkback host known as the “human headline”, criticised RadioLive’s handling of the incident. He said he had heard about the incident and the RadioLive apologies were “pretty half-hearted”. “When it comes to issues like sexual assault and this alleged gang, you’ve got to show responsibility,” Hinch said. “ ... I would have thought there’d be more of a sanction then sending someone on holiday.” Hinch said if the hosts were on holiday then they would still be getting paid. “The station in question could fine them. Take them down off air for a couple of weeks with

no pay.” If the station wanted to show “a little bit of class” they also would donate the hosts’ salaries to a victims’ group for the period they were stood down, Hinch said. “That would be a very fair thing to do.” Hinch is no stranger to controversy. He publicly named two sex offenders on air, which led to him being sentenced to home detention for breaching a suppression order in 2011. Matt McCarten, who was a panelist on Jackson and Tamihere’s RadioLive show, also criticised the station’s management over its handling of the incident. In a column in the Herald on Sunday, he said he had been surprised at what the weekly panel had got away with without sanction. “The news that two other RadioLive hosts were apologising this week for their comments suggests a wider problem,” he wrote. “The fact that management reaction was irresponsibly delayed and none of these managers have fronted directly says a lot about RadioWorks’ corporate culture. “Hiding behind their PR shows a lack of accountability and leadership. It seems it’s not just RadioLive’s broadcasters who need to examine their conduct.” - APNZ

Bubble car turns heads in Dunedin By John Lewis You have to have a good sense of humour to drive Alistair Lobb’s 1957 BMW Isetta 300. Why? “Because everybody laughs at you when you drive past in it,’’ he said. There’s barely room for more than one in the rare - and tiny - red car. How tiny? It is smaller than a ride-on lawnmower. The Italian-designed microcar is adored by many because of its egg shape and bubble-like windows, and is commonly referred to as a bubble car. “It’s all right going to the shop

for a bottle of milk or a loaf of bread, but you can forget about getting your weekly groceries in there,’’ Mr Lobb said. “When I did the Auckland to Christchurch British Rally in February [this year], I had to choose between luggage and my wife because there wasn’t room for both. “My luggage won,’’ he confirmed. Of the nearly 200 cars from manufacturers in Europe, Britain, Australia, United States, and Japan which took part in the Otago Community Hospice charity cruise and display at Tahuna Park in Dunedin yesterday, the Isetta appeared to be getting

the most attention. “It’s always been a crowd drawer,’’ he said. The Ashburton car owner said he found the car in a Chertsey hay barn as a wreck in 1992, and spent thousands of dollars restoring it. It had only about 18,000 miles on the clock when he found it. It was manufactured at Brighton Locomotive Works by Isetta of Great Britain Ltd and is powered by a 295cc four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled R35 BMW motorcycle engine. It has a four-speed transmission. Mr Lobb said it cruised between 70km/h and 80km/h, and was capable of going 100km/h. However, he seldom ventured to that speed because the vehicle did not handle well and things got a bit “wobbly’’. He said it was a little intimidating at times during the charity cruise from Dunedin to Mosgiel and back, especially when he was surrounded by large American V8s. While some V8 owners joked they could fit his car in their boot, he chuckled at how the Isetta’s power-to-weight ratio meant the V8s struggled to keep up with him on Three Mile Hill. Mr Lobb said he bought the vehicle purely because he had always wanted one, and it went well with his collection of other

micro cars, which included several Goggomobils. Otago Community Hospice Charity Cruise event founder and co-ordinator Andrew Hur-

ren-Webster said he established the event following the death of his mother, who spent the last three days of her life at the Otago Community Hospice. - ODT

“Young people’s reproductive desires have changed,” he said. Xia Gaolong and his wife are among those who will be allowed to have a second child as a result of the new policy, but he said he has no intention of giving his 10-year-old son a sibling. Xia, who runs a tour bus business in the thriving city of Nanjing in eastern China, said the high cost of living and fierce competition for schools and jobs would deter him from bringing another child into the world. “No way will I have another child,” said Xia, who is in his late 30s. “There are so many pressures in life in today’s society, and our children will face only more pressures.” Experts estimate that the new rules allowing couples where one partner is an only child to have a second baby will result in 1 million to 2 million extra births per year in the first few years, on top of the 16 million babies born annually in China.

Widespread flooding after heavy rains in South Africa has affected more than 18,000 people. Weekend rains caused floods that blocked roads, provoked landslides and cut off power to areas around Cape Town, according to city disaster management spokesman Wilfred Solomons-Johannes. “Approximately 18,000 people were affected, an evacuation was initiated and people were sheltered in various halls,” SolomonsJohannes news agency said.

The poignant moment of remembrance will come two days before the November 22 anniversary of Kennedy being gunned down in an open top limousine in Dallas in 1963, in a crime which traumatised the world. - AP

Japan brings high tech fix to disaster to what doctors needed in the aftermath of the Japanese disaster. “This is the first time that we are deploying it in a disaster situation,” Tomioka told AFP at a tent medical clinic put up by the Japanese government to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan, which crashed through the central Philippines more than a week ago. At the partly air-conditioned clinic in the ruined city of Tacloban, a radiologist placed a camera on the chest of 72-yearold Carlos Llosa as he sat in his

Japanese medics treating victims of the Philippines typhoon have deployed wireless mobile X-ray kits using tablet computers, a world first in a disaster zone. The technology, which was developed after the huge tsunami that hit Japan in 2011, allows doctors to take a look inside patients instantly, and even lets them enlarge the image with familiar iPad gestures. Joji Tomioka, co-ordinator of the Japan Medical Team for Disaster Relief, said the system had been created in response


In brief

Strict one baby policy easing Don’t expect a new Chinese baby boom, experts say, despite the first easing of the country’s strict one-child policy in three decades. Some 15 million to 20 million Chinese parents will be allowed to have a second child after the government announced Friday that couples where one partner has no siblings can have two children. But the easing of the policy is so incremental that demographers and policymakers are not anticipating an influx of newborn babies at a time when young Chinese couples are already opting for smaller families, driving the country’s fertility rate down to 1.5 to 1.6 births per woman. “A baby boom can be safely ruled out,” said Wang Feng, professor of sociology at the University of California Irvine. Wang noted that although Chinese couples where both parents have no siblings have for some time been allowed to have a second child, many have elected to have only one.

wheelchair. The X-ray image was instantaneously transmitted through a wireless router to an iPad and to a nearby laptop. With a thumb and a finger, the doctor was able to zoom in for a more detailed view of the problem area. “It looks like he has tuberculosis,” Tomioka said after looking at the image as the patient was wheeled out. Japan’s 26-strong medical team includes doctors, nurses, pharmacists, cardiologists and medical technicians. The outfit is able to

provide medicine and carry out minor surgery. Tomioka said Japanese medical experts are seeing about 200 patients a day as part of a large international aid effort to reach the estimated 13 million people affected by one of the most powerful storms ever recorded. The United Nations says 4460 people are now known to have died when the ferocious storm hit. It said Saturday that 2.5 million people still “urgently” need food. - AAP

Townies relish chance to see farm action Susan Sandys



anterbury was hit with show fever on Friday as crowds flocked to the final day of New Zealand’s biggest show. The Canterbury anniversary day saw residents enjoy a public holiday, and many Mid Cantabrians travel up to the 151st Canterbury A & P Show to either visit or compete. What struck me as an attendee at the show, was the huge number of city dwellers who turned out in droves just to get a taste of country life. Among all the rides, sideshows, live entertainment and many stalls on offer, it seemed the farm and animal exhibits were among the most popular. The aisles in the livestock sheds were always full of people, young and old. Children crouched to stretch their arms and pat the cows, sheep, llamas, and pigs, and eagerly clambered into calf pens to cuddle the young cows. At the indoor shearing arena, all the seating was taken and those standing crowded around the top four rows thick, while the outdoor woodchopping events were just as popular. At the Crozier’s Turkeys stand, children flocked around just for their chance to hold a baby bird, and once they were holding them did not want to put them back. We are lucky with our local shows – at Ashburton, Mayfield and Methven – as we have a wide array of attractions but not nearly the same crowds to compete with. And there will be a milestone show next year, when the Methven A&P Association holds its 100th show in March. Organisers are already busy preparing for the event, and will be hoping for a good turnout. It seems they won’t have to worry about too many bells and whistles though, as it is the essence of A&P shows country coming to town - that people seem to love.

Armistice Day service On November 11 I attended this small but important service, especially as we near the 100th anniversary of World War One. I was disgusted that the court did not stop proceedings for this 15-minute service. Three times it was interrupted by the outside microphone calling up offenders to appear as follows 1/ While the Ode to the Going Down Of The Sun was being read.

by David Fletcher

2/ While the Last Post and Reville was being sounded. 3/ While we were saying the Lord’s Prayer. As a Government department surley the court could have shown some respect. I appreciate the Armistice Day service is not as significant as Anzac Day for New Zealand and I didn’t expect Ashburton to grind to a halt at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month. Although NZ had far more casulaties in France and Belgium than Gallipoli in World War One. I recall my wife and I being on a bus tour of London at 11am on Armistice Day – the bus and almost all of London stopped – amazing. We are asked to respect the courts of our land the Ashburton District Court should practice what it preaches in future. Chris Thomas

Perservering for nation’s good

Ashburton Guardian 13

POLL RESULT Yesterday’s result Q: Is technology influencing children’s education too much?

Jo Goodhew



ive years ago, a combination of a domestic recession, the Global Financial Crisis and poor government-decision-making meant New Zealand was teetering. Government spending under Labour had risen 50 per cent in five years. Families were battling high inflation and mortgage rates of over 10 per cent. One in five teenagers were leaving school unable to read and write properly. Forecasts for unemployment were growing. New Zealanders wanted change. They wanted greater security, and better prospects. They wanted policies that they knew made economic sense. They turned to National. The day after we were elected, we got to work. And we haven’t stopped working since. A Global Financial Crisis and devastating Canterbury earthquakes would have knocked back the most robust of economies, and the most resilient of people. But the Government and New Zealanders have persevered. We have worked together and it’s that combination of effort and direction which has got us to the much stronger position we enjoy today. As the economy grows, we are seeing new jobs being created, and unemployment falling. New Zealand is among the top handful of countries for growth in the developed world. Inflation is at record lows. So are mortgage interest rates. The Government is on track to surplus.

We’ve made big improvements to the public services families rely on – like healthcare and education. More surgery is happening than ever before, and parents with children at primary school, under our Government, are actually entitled to know how they’re going. It’s taken five years to reach this point, and there is so much more to come. Our clear four-point plan is

working. We’re responsibly managing the government’s finances, because that’s our job. We’re building a more competitive and productive economy, because that will provide more opportunities for job-seekers whether they’re just entering the workforce, or whether they’re gradually moving out of it. It will also provide more security for all of us if there are any more unex-

pected shocks. We’re delivering better public services, because taxpayers deserve to see results from their taxes. And we’re rebuilding Christchurch because it needs to be done. We know things are still tough for lots of people, but five years after we were first elected, the economy is in much better shape, prospects are good, and the future is brighter.

Learn to read signals of sexual abuse Lisa Anderson


I write my story, not because misery loves company, but because victory deserves to be shared. I don’t ask for your pity, but hope that when the truth is told, my story, our story, will free a multitude of prisoners from a shared consciousness of guilt and shame.” These words are from the opening paragraphs of, Kiss of the Wolf Spider, by Sharianne

Bailey, launched last weekend. As a rule, I have chosen to stay away from books or movies with this genre. The impact of such horrors never seems to bring any relief or positive change. The victim is shrouded in a life of shame and condemnation while life goes on around them, however those words brought a sense of change and I knew from that moment I was in for a journey I’d not experienced before on the pages of a book. Quite simply, this is the best book I have ever read. Bailey has captured the very heart

and soul of a young, beautiful and innocent woman who was trapped in a horrifying reality from a young age and expressed private horrors and public joys with sincerity, delicate emotion and God’s grace. She has written with such integrity in honouring “Jane”, the innocent victim of incestuous abuse, as a survivor, a heroine and someone to admire. Bailey’s mental and emotional disposition toward Jane evoked very specific and appropriate responses in me as the reader. I am in awe of her ability to communicate Jane’s injustice

and vile betrayal in a way that expressed the character’s raw emotion so at times I trembled when she did, I wanted to run when she ran and I wanted to scream at those closest to her to open their eyes. I also rejoiced in her times of victory and felt comforted and encouraged as Jane did when her story was revealed and she began the journey of restoration and redemption. If you or someone you know has ever experienced sexual abuse, this true story will bring them hope. If you have no idea about the trauma this hidden

lifestyle brings, then please read Kiss of the Wolf Spider. Living in today’s society, we can no longer bury our head in the sand and let so many suffer in silence. Learn to read the signals of sexual abuse and help free the many innocent “Janes” in our society. Jane’s story and Sharianne Bailey’s narrative prowess, I know, will bring healing, redemption, insight and freedom. Kiss of the Wolf Spider can be purchased online from Lisa Anderson is a Senior Leader at New Life Church

prices have soared, with the island attracting an additional - and influential - demographic: young, educated and affluent property owners commuting each day to high-paying jobs in the city, commonly in the finance sector. Whether development is good or bad remains a subject for fierce debate on an island that is also increasingly a family-oriented getaway destination for Aucklanders, with an inevitable mushrooming of B&Bs, short-stay holiday apartments and restaurants. Waiheke even has backpacker accommodation and campsites. Attractions include almost a dozen white-sand beaches, of which the most popular for swimming is Oneroa Beach, near the main town of Oneroa. Despite a busy schedule, I manage to sprawl at the water’s edge for an hour. Another family favourite is 1.87km Onetangi Beach, while Cactus Bay is an attractive hideaway for couples. Visitors

potential visitors don’t even hear about it until it’s too late. Residents put a positive spin on this, suggesting that being overlooked means that summer crowds are never overwhelming. But enormous change has come to Waiheke Island over the past 15 years. Previously known to Aucklanders as a delightful “alternative lifestyle” backwater blessed with superb beaches, the resident population was heavily skewed towards creative types and pensioners. Painters and sculptors favoured it as a base. So did architects, graphic designers and writers. The handful of daily commuters were often in advertising, media or related industries. Waiheke Island hasn’t lost this core group. It still has its organic farmers, secluded “clothes optional” beaches and artists’ studios that welcome visitors. But in recent years house

he harbour cruise comes as an unexpected bonus. Other cruises exist as deliberate opportunities for tourists to savour the sights of Auckland’s spectacular harbour - but not this one. Instead, this 35-minute voyage is the regular ferry service to Waiheke Island. As a skyline dominated by taller-than-everything-else Sky Tower recedes into the distance, passengers stand on deck to take in the view. It’s calm and sunny - and I feel immensely grateful to a friend who lives in New Zealand’s largest city. She recommended this ferry trip, calling it “a fabulous harbour cruise - only cheaper”. We travel almost 18 kilometres into the Hauraki Gulf to reach Waiheke Island. Among gulf isles, only sparsely populated Great Barrier Island is bigger. Waiheke’s population, nearly 9000 people, climbs by about 5000 when tourists and owners of holiday homes stay for short periods. Most tourists, however, are on day trips. The island, by the way, is by no means Auckland’s best-known attraction. Some

Rugby briefs Ireland 15-32 Aussie The Wallabies posted their first back-to-back win of the year with a dominant 32-15 victory over Ireland at Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Australia scored a four-try shutout in their most creditable performance of Ewen McKenzie’s short tenure to give him a fourth win from 10 Tests. Flanker Michael Hooper scored two tries, either side of being sin-binned, in a man-ofthe-match effort while enigmatic playmaker Quade Cooper continued his return to form in a 17-point display. Cooper scored the try which turned a tight match the Wallabies way when he dummied and stepped through for a 22-12 lead early in the second half.

Wales 40-6 Argentina Wales rebounded from a disappointing loss to South Africa to clinch a record 40-6 win over Argentina with a clinical display at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Tries in the first half by Mike Phillips and George North were followed by scores from Toby Faletau and Ken Owens in the second half while Leigh Halfpenny kicked 20 points. The victory ended Wales’ dismal run of results in their autumn internationals having gone almost four years without a victory at this stage of the year, since last beating the Pumas in 2009.

France 38-18 Tonga Morgan Parra guided a listless France to a 38-18 victory over Tonga in an ill-tempered match at Le Havre’s Stade Oceane. The victory will go some way to avenging the shock 19-14 pool loss Les Bleus suffered at the hands of the South Sea Islanders at the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand. But France coach Philippe Saint-Andre will doubtless have much to pore over as his side failed to put away a Tongan team which featured a raft of players competing at club level.

Italy 37-31 Fiji Italy held on to defeat an ill-disciplined Fiji 37-31 after the victors received five yellow cards during the match in Cremona. Fiji scored the opening try but four yellow cards within eight minutes of each other in the first half had Fiji play with just 11-men for a brief period and the Italians put 17 points on the board while the extra-men advantage to lead 20-5 at halftime. The visitors almost threatened to snatch the most unlikely of wins when two tries in the last 10 minutes set up a tense finale, but the host held on.

Romania 21-20 Canada Romania edged out Canada 21-20 with a penalty goal on the full time whistle in Bucharest. Canada scored two tries but seven successful penalties from Romanian midfielder Florin Vlaicu gave them the win, backing up from a one point 19-18 win over Tonga a week earlier.

USA 25-23 Georgia The US Eagles fly-half Adam Siddall landed a last-minute penalty to secure a 25-23 victory over Georgia in Rustavi. Siddall kicked the winning penalty from 40m out, minutes after a penalty from Georgia’s Merab Kvirikashvili seemed to have won the game for the hosts.- AP

All Blacks have to dig deep By Patrick Mckendry The All Blacks left it late yesterday morning, but eventually overcame a strong English effort to put to rest the ghost of last year’s final-game loss at Twickenham. Pulling out to a 17-3 lead thanks to tries from wing Julian Savea and Kieran Read, the All Blacks appeared to be cruising until the English came back and threatened to repeat their shock victory of last year. They took a 22-20 lead into the final quarter until an improving All Blacks lineout with Sam Whitelock celebrating his 50th test to the fore - and fresh impetus from the reserves got them home. Savea’s second try in a man of the match performance after spending time in a Paris hospital last week due to a lung infection put his side back in front. “If you broke the game down into quarters, the first 20 we controlled, the next 20 they controlled, the next 20 was probably shared and then we managed to get on top,” coach Steve Hansen said. “We started to dig into their lineout ball, the quality of their lineout ball and the few scrums we had, we started to put some pressure on them. That was really pleasing from our point of view.

“Mentally we were in front of a lot of the game and saw our lead slip away and when that happens that can prey on your mind but it didn’t. “The guys stayed with the process and stayed connected with each other and stayed on top.” Skipper Richie McCaw often appeared bemused by referee Craig Joubert’s rulings at the breakdown. No8 Read was sinbinned for coming around the side and the constant penalties to England in this area kept them in the match. “We needed to play with field possession and the ball because we had neither,” McCaw said. “There’s no point in worrying about blowing a lead. You’ve just got to stick to what you have to do next. “The key to getting back on top was getting to the right end of the field and holding on to the ball. We showed when we did that we put them under quite a lot of pressure and scored a try. “We realised it was going to be a battle and that’s what it was.” Hansen said England’s approach to the breakdown caused his side problems, adding it was up to the All Blacks to adjust and that their discipline at times was “average”.

Coming through: All Blacks captain Richie McCaw gives England’s Courtney Lawes the brush-off in yesterday’s game.

“From what I’m seeing, you can seal off the ball and go off your feet, whereas in the southern hemisphere that just gets smashed. You not allowed to do it. “It’s something that we have to adapt to.” McCaw added: “I was frustrated that we were giving away those penalties ... There’s no point bitching and moaning.

The key is we have to adapt ... it took us a while to do that today.” England coach Stuart Lancaster said: “We’re desperately disappointed that having got to 22-20 we couldn’t close out the game. but I’m very proud of the effort from the players. “Credit to New Zealand, they’re a champion side.” - APNZ

Injury curtails Carter’s big day By Patrick Mckendry The gold boots, complete with special “DC 100” logo, were shining, but Dan Carter’s big day ended in what has become a depressingly familiar way for him - injury. He left the field in the 26th minute of this battle at Twickenham, his right lower leg again failing him. Carter looked in discomfort after taking the ball into heavy contact and never recovered. He stretched his calf alongside All Blacks doctor Tony Page but left the field soon after, replaced by Aaron Cruden. It could be Carter’s final game until after next year’s June internationals against old foe England, a nation with whom his side is building an increasingly intense rivalry. The All Blacks were severely tested in all facets in this 30-22 victory. With his sabbatical pending, Carter must be in serious doubt for next Monday morning’s

test against Ireland in Dublin. Already struggling for match fitness due to his series of injuries over the past 18 months, there was always a bit of a concern about his body in this week of all weeks. Having made it through training soundly, the stage was set. He was nicely composed during his limited opportuni-

ties. There were two pinpoint chip-passes for Charles Piutau and Ben Smith and his goalkicking was perfect, with two conversions and a penalty, including one from the right sideline. There was a feeling he was playing well within himself in preparation of expressing himself fully as the game wore

on, but it was not to be. His replacement Cruden initially found it difficult to impose his will on the game but there were some nice touches. A charge down here, a shimmy and sidestep there. Cruden packs a surprising amount of power into his a relatively small frame. His work on defence was also important as the All Blacks were forced to scramble time and again, but scramble they did, notching a 13th straight win. In the gloom of late afternoon in south west London, Carter smiled on the pitch afterwards as he received his cap from skipper Richie McCaw. The victory and recognition will have gone a long way to ease the personal pain of yet another injury. “Most people see him come out on a Saturday and be a champion... but the work that goes in makes him a true champion,” McCaw said in his presentation. “You’ll go down as one of the greats of world rugby.” - APNZ

Scott claims Masters View or purchase photos online

Adam Scott has retained the Australian Masters title despite a final day struggle in the face of a strong challenge from American world No.8 Matt Kuchar. US Masters champion Scott started the day five shots clear of Kuchar, but couldn’t maintain his fine form of the previous three days and fell two shots behind the American with four holes to play. But on Royal Melbourne’s closing holes, it was the world No.2 Scott who managed to hold firm, picking up a birdie on the par 5 15th, while Kuchar, two groups ahead, bogeyed the 16th then doublebogeyed the last. That gave Scott a two-shot cushion entering his last two holes and he parred both to finish with an even par 71 to be 14-under 270 with second-placed Kuchar (68) two shots back and Fiji’s Vijay Singh (71) third at 10-under. - AAP

Smith stars as nationals loom Tinwald’s Josh Smith (above) prepares to tee off for Aorangi during the South Island Interprovincial championship at the Methven Golf Club on Saturday. Smith played a starring role for Aorangi winning all four of his match-ups over the two

days, one of only two players to do so, pushing his case for the nationals. In what was a selection trial tournament for the upcoming national interprovincial Aorangi finished fourth with 4-4 draws with eventual winner Tasman and Southland.

Tinwald Golf Club’s Nigel Heney also had a strong weekend winning three of his four games, and only losing his final game on the final hole, while the Ashburton trio of Cameron Grant, Daniel Green and Jordan Green all played well in

close matches for one win each. The South Island tournament allowed the regions to play eight players with the final five for the national tournament, to be held on the North Shore starting on December 3, will be named today.


Luke ‘grown up’ since Chase incident By Michael Brown The last time cousins Issac Luke and Rangi Chase played against each other, it ended badly for the Kiwis and Luke in particular and it was lucky Chase wasn’t invalided out of the game for an extended period. Luke admitted after New Zealand’s 28-6 defeat to England in 2011 he tried to break Chase’s leg with a leg twist. The Kiwis hooker felt aggrieved his cousin had switched allegiance to England from New Zealand and it pushed him over the edge. “I just saw red,” Luke admitted at the time. It’s something that has followed the 26-year-old since and

it will form some of the backdrop among a variety of good sub-plots ahead of next Sunday’s (NZT) World Cup semifinal between New Zealand and England at Wembley. “I have moved on from that, grown up,” Luke said after the Kiwis’ impressive 40-4 win over Scotland on Saturday morning. “As you can see, it’s really been reflected in how I have been going.” Luke has been arguably the player of the tournament so far and his value to the Kiwis side cannot be overstated. Seeing Sonny Bill Williams lying prone on the ground early against Scotland might have been distressing for some New Zealand fans but it would have

been even worse if it had been Luke. The Kiwis base so much of their game around forward power but also Luke’s darts out of dummy-half. Australia’s Cameron Smith might be the best controlling hooker in the game but no one is as good as Luke out of dummy half. He has run for 509m so far in the tournament, second only to impressive young Kiwis winger Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, and averages around 2m more every run than any other hooker at the tournament as he takes advantage of tired and lazy runners. It’s his growing maturity both on and off the field which

is starting to show through he’s part of the emerging leader’s group and leads the Kiwis haka - when earlier there had been rough edges. In that same 2011 tournament Luke was also widely slated for a cannonball tackle on Australian David Shillington. Last year he was dropped by Rabbitohs coach Michael Macguire for breaking team curfew while attending a family member’s stag party. Luke said earlier this year he looks back on that time as “a good thing” because it forced him to clean up his act. Luke hasn’t caught up with Chase yet at the World Cup. That might need to wait until Sunday morning. - APNZ

The Ashburton College 1st XI recorded a 152-run outright win over St Andrews College 2nd XI in their Canterbury’s secondary Schools two day match on Saturday. Ashburton started day two 28/0 looking to build on their lead of 85, after making 91 and dismissing STAC for 34. Ashburton went on to make 178 all out for a lead of 255, after 31 from Tom Dudley and 26 from Kirk Chettleburgh at the top of the order and 38 from Jack Meyrick at four. They then took regular wickets to bowl STAC out for 83 for the 152-run win with Jack Dudley taking 3/12 while Shaun Stagg, Scott Punselie and Sam Hall taking two wickets each.

Bulls end Pacers’ streak Derrick Rose and his Chicago Bulls have ended the run of the Indiana Pacers as the only unbeaten team of the NBA season. Making his return from injury, point guard Rose scored 20 points and Luol Deng scored 23 to power the Bulls to a 11094 victory over the Pacers in Chicago. The Pacers, who fell to 9-1, were the first club to win their first nine games in a season since the Dallas Mavericks in 2002. But a night after the Pacers ripped Milwaukee, the Bulls outplayed them from the start, seizing a 31-20 lead after the first quarter and a 60-35 half-time advantage. Miami Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats 97-81: Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111: Oklahoma City Thunder got past the Milwaukee Bucks, 92-79. - AFP

Slater in serious doubt Greg Inglis hopes Billy Slater will play again at the Rugby League World Cup but admits he’ll relish a switch to fullback in the Melbourne star’s absence. Slater is set to sit out the semi-finals on Saturday and could miss the rest of the tournament after suffering a recurrence of a knee injury in the 62-0 quarter-final win over the United States on Saturday. The irony of Slater’s injury is that it will force Kangaroos coach Sheens into switching Inglis from the centres to his favoured position and one in which many consider him the world’s best. - AAP

In brief Bracewell dropped Cricketer Doug Bracewell was dropped from his Central Districts Stags team for their HRV Cup match on Saturday after he stayed out to party with the Otago Volts cricketers on Friday night. “Dougie is really gutted about it,” Central Districts Cricket chief executive Hugh Henderson said yesterday after the Black Caps allrounder was dropped to 12th man from the Stags team for the HRV Cup Twenty20 match against the Knights in Hamilton on Saturday. “We won’t use the word curfew but we do adhere to standards,” Henderson said of the 23-year-old who drank with the Otago cricketers following their three-wicket win over ND at Seddon Park. - HBT

Test call for Taylor Ross Taylor will find out today whether he’ll be ready for the start of the West Indies test series later this month. New Zealand’s senior batsman has been troubled by a patella tendon injury which he picked up a fortnight ago. Taylor skipped the limited-overs trip to Sri Lanka, the idea being to prepare for the West Indies with some red ball cricket. He will see a specialist today to determine whether he is ready for Central Districts’ Plunket Shield game against Northern Districts in Hamilton, starting on November 26. The first West Indies test starts in Dunedin on December 3. - APNZ

Bailey ready for Ashes Even for a player who seems more leader than debutant, the life expectancy for Australian batsmen in recent years can’t be providing George Bailey with comfort leading into his anticipated Test debut at the Gabba on Thursday. But gleaning advice from one of those fallen soldiers, Rob Quiney, has Australia’s latest mature-age rookie ready for the Ashes cauldron. It’s rare that a debutant has the potential to be so immediately influential, but given Michael Clarke’s issues and vice-captain Brad Haddin’s age, it’s not beyond the realms that Bailey could in the nottoo-distant future, be asked to step up further as a leader. - AAP

Windies’ dodgy action West Indies off-spinners Marlon Samuels and Shane Shillingford have both been reported for suspected illegal bowling actions for a second time. The reports rubbed salt into the wounds for the Windies after losing to India by an innings and 126 runs in the second Test in Mumbai Sachin Tendulkar’s 200th and final Test which ended on Saturday. Samuels and Shillingford were reported at the end of the second day’s play by on-field umpires Richard Kettleborough and Nigel Llong, TV umpire Vineet Kulkarni and Andy Pycroft. The umpires’ reports cited particular concern over Samuels’ “quicker deliveries” and Shillingford’s “doosras”. - AAP

Trophy claimed - at last BY JONATHAN LEASK


After seven years, the Mid Canterbury senior cricket team reclaimed the Ron Biggar Memorial with a five wicket win over South Canterbury in Timaru yesterday. Mid Canterbury handed over the shield in 2006 and after six years of coming close, they finally got the better of their southern neighbours, after a strong bowling performance without seamers Richard Print and Bevan Ravenscroft and a standout innings from Ben Mably. Mid Canterbury put South

Canterbury in to bat and quickly had the hosts in trouble at 31/3 with Harry Jones cleaning out the top order, except for the experienced James Laming. Laming stuck around until Will Southby had him caught out for 44 to have South Canterbury 54/5 after 21 overs. A stubborn sixth wicket partnership edged the hosts towards 100 before Robbie Polson made the breakthrough and Englishman Rich Wilton made it 79/7. The eighth wicket stand got South Canterbury into triple figures before Matt Tait picked up the key wicket and Wilton

cleaned up the tail to finish with 3/23 from 7.4 overs as the hosts were bowled out for 118. Jones who started it all had 3/14 from his nine overs. Chasing 119 for the win Mid Canterbury got off to a solid start as Ben Mably and Polson got through to 88 before the loss of the first wicket, Polson for 34 and Josh Worsfold followed the next ball. While wickets fell at the other end Mably anchored the innings to finish up 71 not out and guide Mid Canterbury home to a five wicket win in the 33.2 overs and claim the Ron Biggar Memorial.

Harry Jones: Did the damage with the ball yesterday.


Winning start to cycling festival BY JONATHAN LEASK


Hinds cyclist Lauren Ellis has produced a sterling start to a big week on the bike in Southland winning the women’s omnium at the UCI Festival of Speed event at Invercargill. It is the first time New Zealand has hosted a UCI Tier One event which offers qualifying points ultimately to the 2016 Rio Olympics, with Ellis contesting the six-disciple omnium in the lead up to the Oceania Championships which start tomorrow at the same venue. Ellis, a member of the team pursuit at the London Olympics, signalled her potential for Rio taking out the omnium in impressive fashion. “That is only my third omnium that I’ve ever done and I really enjoyed it racing against the other girls and other competitors,” Ellis said. “Potentially I would like to consider omnium. “From what we have heard about Rio is that the omnium rider may come from the team pursuit. “If that’s the case I would like to put my hand up and have a go at it if I can.” On Saturday Ellis finished second in the flying lap and the points race before she won the elimination to be on five points clear of fellow Olympians Jaime Nielsen, 10 points, and Rushlee Buchanan was third on 12 points. Yesterday she won the individual pursuit, was seventh in the scratch race and third in the time trial to finish on top of the standings two days out from the Oceania Championships, her

first international racing since the London Olympics over a year ago. It was a Kiwi omnium double with world champion Aaron Gate taking out the men’s event. In what was the first chance for Gate to compete in the rainbow colours of a UCI world champion on home turf, he finished well clear on 16 points ahead of young Kiwi prospects Dylan Kennett and Pieter Bulling, who both enjoyed strong second day performances. The men’s sprint offered plenty of hope when Southland’s Eddie Dawkins set a new national record in topping qualifiers in the morning, however, he withdrew from the semi-finals on medical ground, which followed his outstanding win in the men’s keirin final from fellow kiwi Simon van Velthooven on Saturday night. The riders get a rest day today before the four-day Oceania Championships starts tomorrow, where Ellis competes in the New Zealand women’s endurance team and fellow local cyclist Frances Smith will be making her international debut in the junior women’s ranks.

In brief

Northern raider grabs cup glory That man Kevin Myers was at it again at Riccarton on Saturday with yet another successful feature race raid that had an experienced and respected horseman shaking his head in admiration. The Wanganui trainer had set Spring Cheer on a path toward the Group 3 Christchurch Casino New Zealand Cup some months back and The Oaks Stud-bred and raced mare duly won out in the 3200 metre feature. “I can’t believe how good this trainer is and I wish he was here to share it all with us,” the Cambridge farm’s general manager Rick Williams said. “It’s huge for me and for (stud owner) Dick Karreman – he puts all the money in and

I’m just the guy who runs the orchestra.” It was a winning tune that Williams presided over in Christchurch on Saturday, and the other major player was Myers’ niece and successful rider Rosie. “She rode a filly called Blanket Bay in the Oaks and she rode it perfectly for us,” Williams said. “She’s had a few seconds and I said to Rosie before the race here’s your chance to break the duck.” Myers got Spring Cheer moving across the top and the Bachelor Duke mare out-finished Go Joeli, which was in front into the straight, to take major honours by a long head and join Kelly as a cup winner

after her sister’s 2008 success aboard Hoorang. “That was outstanding and full credit to Uncle Kevin who targeted this race a long time ago,” Myers said. “I was a bit handier than I had expected and when they all started going around me I let her get out and cruise around them and she got to the line beautifully.” When Spring Cheer was improving the favoured Guns At Five was strung up in traffic and he hit the line well for third ahead of the winner’s stablemate Mahanadi. His effort to run fourth after winning the Grand National Hurdles in August further underlined Myers’ conditioning skills. - APNZ

The Guy Lowry & Grant Cullen training partnership are off to a flying start in the first four months of the racing season with Lowry hopeful the run can continue for their team at Woodville today. Their ten wins to date put them thirteenth on the National Trainer’s Premiership ladder as they look to better the stable tally of twenty wins achieved in each of the previous two years. “We have had a great start this year and with a little luck it could have been even better as we have been dogged by bad barrier draws of late,” he said. “Mind you, you always need plenty of luck to win a race so hopefully we can keep getting our share as we do have a nice team for summer racing.” - APNZ

The horse she trained stopped the nation, but it was Gai Waterhouse who stopped the races in their tracks on Saturday. Or rather, the races stopped Gai Waterhouse. The champion trainer could barely move at Rosehill, such was the enthusiasm from the public wanting to meet the woman who clinched her maiden Melbourne Cup courtesy of Fiorente’s winning run. As she mingled with colleagues and the general public, Waterhouse clutched tightly to her first Melbourne Cup trainer’s trophy, which has already travelled from Gerringong to Canberra and ridden on the back of a Harley. - AAP

Bryce pulls right rein Bryce Revell’s decision to escape the lingering rain in Taranaki with his two-year-old Second Time Lucky has been vindicated with two cheques and a Listed win for the filly. The New Plymouth trainer headed south early with the daughter of Any Suggestion, who on Saturday showed the benefit of her first-up run with victory in the Barneswood Farm Agistment Welcome Stakes. “It was pretty wet at home so I thought she’d thrive down here,” said Revell, who also shares in the ownership of Second Time Lucky. He was delighted with her debut performance at Riccarton last month when she finished runnerup over 800 metres behind the flying Hurunui. “That was a huge effort and she got beaten by a track record and she’d only had a couple of jump-outs,” Revell said.

Guineas goes to plan Jason Bridgman couldn’t possibly have wished for Saturday’s New Zealand 1000 Guineas at Riccarton to have unfolded any better for Costa Viva and rider Leith Innes did the rest. The Matamata trainer knew she required a genuine pace and the opportunity to have the final crack at her rivals in the straight and that’s exactly how the New Zealand Bloodstocksponsored feature panned out. “It played out well for her with a bit of early tempo and unfortunately Bounding got caught wide and Leith ended up in a lovely spot and set it up for the last shot and he executed it perfectly,” Bridgman said. Costa Viva settled one off the fence toward the back of the small field and when presented by Innes she was able to power over the top and win going away. - APNZ

In brief Tua in politics? His retirement freshly announced, David Tua opened his dressing room door to an expectant media and, with an air of relaxed melancholy and rueful smiles, began answering questions about his future. Would he go into politics? It was an option but there was nothing definite. It emerged that talk of him entering politics came up during a Tua visit to a school. “I didn’t go there to start a political party or anything,” he grinned. “But the subject came up and some people got excited about it. There were a lot of Maori and Polynesian kids there - and a lot of Pakeha too - and I was interested enough to say that I would like to help. But we’ll have to see what happens there; it could just be doing something in the community, you know?” - HOS

Singles final looms

The Guardian wishes to advise that due to unforeseen circumstances the College Newsletter for this week will be printed on Wednesday 20 November. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Good news for Parker Fast emerging New Zealand heavyweight Joseph Parker should experience no lasting difficulties after the bad eye cut sustained in his fight with Afa Tatupu last month. His trainer Kevin Barry said from Las Vegas that the cut - suffered after a head clash - had healed well. “I took Joseph to my plastic surgeon and he told us that the eye looks fantastic. The cut is well above the orbital bone and he doubts that a fighter would be able to open it with a punch - though another head clash might be another story,” said Barry. - NZH

Twenty20 bowls? New Zealand’s world No1 women’s bowls player Jo Edwards is this week set to take on the top Australian men in a revolutionary new competition, branded the sport’s version of Twenty20. Edwards has been selected in the three-strong Tower New Zealand Black Jacks to face five powerful Australian state franchises in the inaugural Australian Premier League which opens at Brisbane’s Club Pine Rivers tomorrow. Chasing a total prize fund of A$100,000, the players clash in a quick-fire, two game, five-end format. - APNZ

SCORPIO (OCT 23 – NOV 24) Today’s Full Moon brings you to a rite of passage you must go through during your birthday month, making sure you’re not asleep at the wheel. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 24 – DEC 21) Today’s Full Moon brings work matters to a head, just when your career and income are just waiting to be hit out of the ball park. CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 20) Where life has been all work and no play you not only have the love gods on your back today, but the fun police as well. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 – FEB 19) Today’s Full Moon wouldn’t be doing its job if it didn’t bring work/life balance issues to a head, knowing that you can’t change what you can’t see. PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) Today’s Full Moon has the potential to be a game changer, with a communication and/or relationship breakthrough possible as things come to a head.

FULL STORY Kieran Read crashes over for the All Blacks’ second try during their match against England at Twickenham yesterday morning.


Sweet revenge at Twickenham BY PATRICK MCKENDRY It was a very happy bunch of All Blacks after yesterday morning’s bruising 30-22 victory over England at Twickenham, but Dan Carter and Tony Woodcock have been ruled out of next weekend’s test against Ireland in Dublin.

Another win would be the All Blacks’ 14th of the season and would represent a perfect year in terms of results. First-five Carter’s departure after only 26 minutes with a right Achilles injury was a cruel blow for a player celebrating his 100th test. He won’t play again until the second half of next

year due to his sabbatical and the break will be necessary to get his increasingly troublesome body right. Prop Woodcock strained a hamstring just before halftime and didn’t return to the field after the break. Coach Steve Hansen confirmed Carter’s injury, saying it

Issac Luke ‘just saw red’ P17

was the opposite Achilles to the one he ruptured in 2009 during his short season with Perpignan. “It’s been rumbling away for a while,” Hansen said of Carter’s lower leg problem. “He’s obviously very sore. It’s not ruptured, I wouldn’t think, but we won’t know that until we get some scans.

“It’s disappointing for him again. He’s had a wretched time with injuries but he made a major contribution I thought during the time he was on. “He kicked really well and put us in the right places. He did well. “And to get to 100 caps is no mean feat.” - APNZ
