By Adam Poulopoulos Two men are being hailed as heroes after rescuing a 12-year-old schoolgirl who got swept away in the swollen Taylor River on Wednesday morning. Marlborough Boys’ College head boy Angus Pauley, 17, and winemaker and multisport athlete Jeremy McKenzie managed to pull the girl out of the rushing water after she went in on her way to school, about 8.45am. Angus said he and mum Helen drove past the High Street bridge and saw the girl in waist-deep water underneath, trying to cross a footbridge with her bike. Continued page 3

Airport terminal expansion starts soon The Marlborough Airport terminal expansion could begin as soon as next week, with negotiations for the contract now underway. The airport board has approved the Warren and Mahoney design for the project and work is scheduled to be completed this summer. The extensions will increase the public space at the airport, easing the pressure that has been increasing with growing passenger numbers
and larger aircraft servicing Marlborough. The design pushes the exist-
ing terminal out to the south and north with a new glazed frontage facing north.
The expansion will also mean a substantial increase in passenger waiting areas and the space for queuing at the ticket counters, plus a third arrival and departure gate will be installed. Access to the baggage collection area will be under cover and the public toilet facilities will be expanded. A mezzanine floor will provide a meeting area for the business sector.

By Kristy Martin Delilah Bown is living proof you are never too young to learn the value of money. The two-year-old Blenheim girl has been helping her parents sell limes outside their Percy Street home for the past two months. Delilah helps pick the limes from the family’s backyard trees, assists with the counting and bagging and helps set up the stall on weekends. The little entrepreneur is even involved in the marketing process. Delilah and mum Melanie use chalk to promote the lime stall on the footpath and direct foot traffic toward their house.
“At the end of the day she collects the takings and transfers the money to her money box and then we use it for activities like kindy gym and swimming,” Melanie said. “I used to work in banking for 10 years so I wanted her to start thinking about money early.” The honesty box at the lime stall was stolen recently and Melanie said it was disheartening. They now collect the cash in their locked letterbox. “You can’t let a couple of bad apples spoil the whole cart and plus the support from our neighbours has been amazing. “People have really gotten behind it and we’re really thankful.”

(L-R) Sergeant Mark Lucas, the girl's father Luke McIsaac and his partner Katie Broome, rescuers Jeremy McKenzie and Angus Pauley, and Angus's parents Helen and Gary Pauley.
Heroes save schoolgirl from Taylor River Continued from page 1 “I yelled out ‘Are you OK?’ and she shouted back ‘I need my mum.’ “I ran down to the river bank, but by the time I got there her bike was gone and she had been swept away.” He said he did not want to jump into the river immediately. “I didn’t want there to be two people to rescue.” Mr McKenzie said he spotted Angus, who had stripped to his underwear, running along the
bank. “When I first saw Angus I thought the police were chasing him, but then I realised he was chasing this girl down the river.” Angus jumped in behind the girl, and Mr McKenzie went in 20 metres downstream so he could catch the pair as they came past. The men kicked into an eddy and took the girl, who had consumed a lot of water, up the bank near Beaver Road before first aid was performed.
About five minutes passed between the men jumping in the water and getting back to the bank. “I went for a 3.5 kilometre swim at the pool earlier in the day, but the five minute splurge was a lot tougher than the 3.5km,” Mr McKenzie said. After coming out of the river both Angus and the girl were taken to hospital, with the head boy suffering mild hypothermia. The girl’s father Luke McIsaac and his partner Katie Broome
thanked the rescuers ‘from the bottom of their hearts’. Sergea nt Ma rk Luca s of Blenheim police also praised the pair, thanking them for the ‘awesome outcome’ and saying they deserved the hero title. “I think a hero is to put your own life at risk to save someone else... “It definitely meets the criteria of hero in my books.” He urged the public to err on the side of caution and stay away when the river flooded.
Rain causes chaos Heavy rainfall this week has led to flooding and a number of road closures throughout the region. Yesterday saw Nelson Street in Blenheim closed and traffic diverted to surrounding streets due to the swelling of the Taylor River. All footbridges along the river were closed, including the one at Beaver Road, near where a schoolgirl was pulled from the water by two rescuers. Parts of Pollard Park were underwater and the Linkwater School closed early on Wednesday due to surface flooding on the students’ bus route. Motorists have been urged to take
care and Marlborough Roads reported frustration after some drivers were seen attempting to drive through closed roads. Heavy rainfall in Picton, which received more than 250mm on Wednesday, created problems for the town’s stormwater and sewerage systems. The wet weather caused sewage overflows from the three pump stations, in Dublin Street, Surrey Street and Fisherman’s Reserve. Council said there were also overflows from manholes in the town and contractors had to pump sewage out through the rail marshalling yards to the Waitohi Stream to prevent overflows in private properties.
Police are seeking to identify the driver who hit a pedestrian on the zebra crossing on Seymour Street, outside Countdown supermarket, about 4.15pm on Wednesday. To view footage of the incident, visit the Marlborough Police Facebook page. If you witnessed the event at the time or have any further information, call police on 578 5279.
A man in his early 50s is believed to have suffered two broken legs when a tractor crushed him against a vehicle near Picton Wharf on Wednesday. The injured man was stabilised at the scene by St John paramedics just after 4.30pm before being transported to Wairau Hospital in a moderate to serious condition.
HEALTH MEETING The Nelson Marlborough District Health Board will hold a public meeting next Wednesday, June 18, from 5pm to 7pm in the Marlborough Convention Centre in order to discuss the Top of the South Review Report that was released last month.

Sally Higgins Recruitment, Temps & HR Advice
By Adam Poulopoulos Local 21-year-old Alex Williams was saving to head overseas this year, but decided to use the money in a different way. Alexandra’s Beauty Boutique, her new business, opened on Monday. Alex operates out of the Hair By Kardos premises, at 28 Maxwell Road. The former Marlborough Girls’ College pupil was set on a trip to Europe later in the year after completing a few odd jobs and finishing a harvest with Giesen Wines. She said that all changed when Kardos manager Debbie Jensen had a word in her ear four months ago. “I wasn’t really thinking about the business but I did a few wed-
ding makeup jobs with Debbie. “She asked if I would think about going out on my own, and it just went from there. “I started to look for supplies and thought how to renovate the room.” With a bit of help from family and friends, Alex got the business off the ground. She said her first week had been better than expected. “I was expecting the worst. I just wanted to get things open. “I talked to a girl who started a salon down in Christchurch and she said she started slowly, but I’m really lucky. I’ve had clients every day.” She said the boutique was already fully booked for the Marlborough Combined Colleges Formal on Friday, September 19.
Babich passes harvest test By Adam Poulopoulos The general manager of New Zealand’s newest winery said it passed through its first vintage with flying colours. Babich Winery, at the Cloudy Bay Business Park, opened in March, in time for harvest. The winery’s construction began last May and finished in January, and was managed by Apollo Projects Marlborough. General manager David Babich said the winery performed well in what was a rain-hit first harvest. “It’s been a dream. “It really came down to how quick we got the grapes off and into the winery. This place ran very smoothly.” He said the winery, which has a holding capacity of 5000 tonnes and a different tank for
General manager David Babich on the winery floor.
each block of grapes, operated very efficiently during harvest. “It runs entirely indoors, so you don’t have the hot sun beating down on the tanks.
“Being energy-efficient is being cost effective and environmentally responsible, and aligning with how we have to operate as wineries now and in
the future.” He said they expected the winery to routinely operate at 350 tonnes a day during harvest, but found themselves operating comfortably above 400 tonnes. Babich moved to build the new winery after 12 years half-sharing their old facility with Rapaura Vintners. “There’s nothing quite like building exactly what you want,” Mr Babich said. He said there was space to expand if they needed to, as they were only using 0.9 hectares of the 1.5h space. “It’s just tricky because you’ve got to know if you’ll get grapes first.” Next year Babich Wines celebrates its 100th vintage.

Pedestrian and Courtesy Crossings On average, 36 pedestrians are killed and 1000 pedestrians are injured on New Zealand roads every year. In Marlborough and in the rest of New Zealand there are two main types of pedestrian crossings. It is important that both pedestrians and motorists know the different rules that apply to each crossing type. Pedestrian Crossings Motorists approaching a pedestrian crossing should always be prepared to slow down and be ready to stop for any pedestrians stepping onto, or on the crossing. This also includes people waiting to use the crossing. A pedestrian crossing is an area of road that has white stripes marked across it. You will also notice black and white poles at the crossing. The poles are mounted with fluorescent orange disks, or round yellow lights that flash at night. White diamonds are sometimes painted on the road before the crossing, and a white limit line shows you where to stop. Some crossings have raised islands in the middle, creating a ‘refuge’ where pedestrians can stop. These are helpful for pedestrians crossing wide, two-way roads or multi-lane roads, because they allow them to walk across one direction of traffic at
Positive Ageing -
a time. Courtesy Crossings Courtesy crossings are not official pedestrian crossings. They provide a place where drivers can stop safely to allow pedestrians to cross. However, drivers are not obliged to stop at courtesy crossings, so use them with care. Courtesy crossings are usually made of bricks or paving and are often raised above the level of the road. Although not official pedestrian crossings, they do provide a place for pedestrians to cross. Drivers should always be courteous to pedestrians using a courtesy crossing. General Rules for Pedestrian Crossings • Cross the road only when it is safe to do so. • Always check all nearby roads for vehicles before you cross and quickly walk straight across the road. • Remember, it takes time for a vehicle to stop. Be sensible and wait for a gap in the traffic before crossing the road. • When crossing the road at an intersection, remember to check behind and in front for turning vehicles.
If you need to cross the road when you get off a bus, wait until the bus has moved away before checking for moving vehicles. • If you are within 20 metres of a pedestrian crossing you must use the crossing provided to cross the road. • Be careful when driving past parked vehicles, pedestrians may walk out without warning. • Don’t step out suddenly onto a pedestrian crossing if any vehicles are so close to the crossing that they cannot stop. • Never overtake a vehicle that is slowing down for a pedestrian crossing or has stopped to let someone cross. School Crossings School crossings, also known as kea crossings, they provide a safe place for children to safely cross the road. They generally only operate before and after school. When school crossings are operating, a fluorescent orange Children sign will be displayed, along with a School Patrol Stop sign that swings out into the road. When the School Patrol Stop sign is out, vehicles coming from both directions must stop and stay stopped until all signs have been pulled in.
If you don’t know the caller, don’t give any personal information to them even if they claim to be from a legitimate organisation. If you are at all concerned, take their number and call them back. Never give out your PIN number or bank account number to any caller. Don’t get brow-beaten by aggressive telemarketing calls. Compose a standard response which you can repeat easily, then hang up. If you get a crank call, hang up immediately. If calls continue, contact your telephone company for further advice.

Mayor Alistair Sowman with the 2014-15 Annual Plan.
Hair By Kardo’s
business hub Marlborough
Rates up 3.26% Council has decided to increase the overall rates take for the year by 3.26 per cent and has named upgrading the region’s social infrastructure as the reason behind most of the spending decisions. Marlborough Mayor Alistair Sowman said council agreed it should not further postpone the repair and maintenance of social infrastructure, particularly sports facilities, which had been on hold for the last few years during difficult economic times. “We can only avoid doing some of this maintenance work for so long before we start creating bigger problems for ourselves in the future,” he said. Councillors approved the Annual Plan 2014-15 with the 3.26 per cent rates increase. “The bulk of our rates continue to go into core council activities; our essential services like roads maintenance and upgrades of Blenheim’s sewerage and Picton’s water,” Mr Sowman said. “But as we have good financial reserves we have been able to loosen the purse strings slightly for some very deserving projects.” Councillors agreed to funding requests from cycling, equestrian and cricket clubs in Marlborough. The council was in the fortunate position of having investments making good returns for the ratepayers of Marlborough and healthy reserves in place, according to the mayor. Reserve funds would be used for the district’s sports facilities. Councilllors would also support community-led projects like the new Link Pathway project, a walking-cycling track connecting Havelock and Picton. Destination Marlborough was granted $100,000 sourced from rates with another $100,000 from reserve funds for marketing, but also to contribute towards the cost of a review of the overall model for smart and connected, tourism marketing and events promotion within the Marlborough economy. Other rates funding • $20,000 for the new Marlborough Heritage Trust • $27,156 for upgrading rural roading at French Pass • $10,000 for council’s Sister City relationships • $7500 for Awatere Community Trust • $5000 for Marlborough Migrant Centre • $5000 for Picton Historical Society

Mailbox sent packing By Adam Poulopoulos Burleigh residents are furious following the removal of the area’s public post office box last Friday. The box, which was located outside the Burleigh Store on Battys Road, was taken away by contractors. It had stood there since 1961, when a previous store owner had it installed. Grosvenor Jones, who lives near the store and is the full time carer of his wife Margaret, said the closest mailbox was now on Maxwell Road. “There must be people like me who can’t leave home for long. I have to be with her 24 hours a day. “For me it was very handy, being across
the road. “It would be tragic if we lost it.” The box has been replaced by a squirrel ornament. The box has been removed with a new residential subdivision, on Colonial Vineyards land across the road from the store, still expected to go ahead. Dai Jones, who owns the Burleigh store site, said a sign had gone on the box, saying it could be removed. “They put a sign on it saying if we don’t use it it’ll go, and now they say we’re not using it enough so they’re taking it away.” He said the box had a large catchment area to draw from.
“A lot of people live up in the valleys around Fairhall, and a lot of people work out at Woodbourne, and they come in their uniforms to use the box.” New Zealand Post Nelson area manager Rodney Laing said two boxes in Blenheim, at Burleigh and on Parker Street, had been removed due to low foot traffic. “Nationally, the rapid decline in mail volumes has led to a drop in mail lodged in posting boxes. “In the future, the boxes are more likely to be located in areas where there is high foot traffic such as shopping malls and in front of supermarkets.” Grosvenor Jones and Burleigh store co-owner Jane Dickenson with the squirrel which has replaced the Burleigh PO Box.

The event starts today and runs through to Sunday. This second-hand book fair is being held at 53 Charles Street from 9:30am - 4:30pm and is an annual fundraising event. Fundraiser Zoe Gray said people have been generously dropping off books and volunteers have been busy sorting them into categories ready for the sale. The Cancer Society Marlborough receives no direct government funding. All profits from the book fair will help The Cancer Society to provide their service to reduce the incidence and impact of cancer across Marlborough.

Marlborough males are being encouraged to take easy steps to take care of themselves as part of Men’s Health Week. The Cancer Society-run initiative began on Monday, and finishes on Sunday. The society has set up a website, getthetools.org.nz, to help men improve anything from their mental health to recognising the signs of cancer. Tasman Makos hooker Jesse MacDonald said it was crucial to have a clean lifestyle. “It’s about becoming healthier. It’s pretty important for a longer life, and being around family and friends for as long as possible. “Don’t take the easy way out. Get involved, even if it is for a walk of 30 minutes of fitness.” Cancer Society Marlborough health promoter Teresa Goza said many events could affect a man’s health, including job loss, long working hours and depression. She said there were a variety of ways men

to the doctor. “You don’t need expensive gym equipment to work out, you just need time. “If it gets your heart rate up, it’s good.”
Kids for Kids concerts sell out
Sixteen Marlborough primary and intermediate schools met in Blenheim this week for the Kids for Kids World Vision music show. The sold-out ‘Everything is KaPai’ concerts were held at the Floor Pride Civic Theatre last night and on Wednesday. Schools as far afield as Picton came to play in the events, with eight taking part each night. Former Zed frontman Nathan King came to front the two shows, which also included ukulele players and narrators.

$34K * Students attending last year’s Careers Evening.
Community invited to Careers Evening By Celeste Lodewyk Looking for information on your study path, or perhaps you have decided on a change of career? These are great reasons to attend the annual Careers Evening being held on Monday at the Marlborough Lines Stadium 2000, organised by the Marlborough Boys’ College. This is the 20th year this successful event has run, which sees a number of tertiary and education providers visit Blenheim to provide information on their study options. MBC assistant principal James Ryan says this is very much a ‘community event’ and he invites everyone from primary-aged
students through to adults to take this opportunity to meet with the providers. “Some students might already have an idea of what career they wish to pursue so it’s good for them to speak with these providers and find out the steps to take toward their goals. “Likewise for students who don’t know what they want to do, it’s an opportunity for them and their parents to go along, collect information and start thinking about study options,” he says. According to James, events such as this also help give students “focus” when in the classroom. “The moment students have something to focus on they have

a higher rate of engagement and more energy in class. “There are less problems outside of class and they progress better, so it’s important that events such as this Careers Evening occur,” he says. New providers visiting Blenheim this year include Waikato University, Inland Revenue and the New Zealand College of Chiropractic. For the first time all NZ-based universities will be attending as well as polytechnics, the armed forces and industry and businessbased training providers. The Careers Evening kicks off at 7pm and finishes at 9pm, and CPR coffee and Subway will remain open during this time.

Print making a good way to ‘refresh yourself’ By Celeste Lodewyk Blenheim will be treated to a unique art form next month when artist Melanie Riley hosts her ‘Print Making Workshop’ through the Marlborough Art Society. Melanie, originally from Christchurch, has taught art for a number of years in secondary schools and privately from a studio. She relocated to Blenheim six months ago as a “retreat from
Christchurch” and the damage the earthquakes have caused. Now in Blenheim, Melanie is excited to be sharing her print making knowledge and skills and hopes people will be encouraged to ‘give it a go’. “My workshop will be specifically looking at monoprints, allowing for more experimenting, as it’s a quick way to explore new ideas. “Printing is different to painting, it’s using printing inks, rollers and
special printing paper and doesn’t require any experience. “Just give it a go,” she says. Melanie’s ‘Print Making Workshop’ begins July 26 and registrations are being taken now. For more information or to book a space in Melanie’s workshop contact Helen Ballinger on 021 026 78711 or visit marlboroughartsociety.com/workshops. htm Right: Students at one of Melanie’s workshops.

When sports collide
People often get the impression sports people are simple, singleminded and lack creativity. However, for some willing to look outside the box, this is not always the case. Baseketball, the cult classic about two friends who play a sport combining baseball and basketball, is best remembered for the entertaining trash talk. However, it is also an example of the playing field being changed altogether, and there are several examples of hybrid ‘sports’ that have taken off around the world. Chess boxing is one. Combining brawn and brain it was invented in South London by two brothers, who both boxed
FOOTBALL The Marlborough Mariners travel over the Whangamoas for their match against the Nelson College First XI tomorrow. They sit fourth on the ladder, 10 points behind the AMI Suburbs First XI.
GOLF Five compet itors f rom Marlborough are signed up for the Special Olympics Marlborough T1 Golf Event. The event is on this Sunday at the Rarangi Golf Club. Overall, 13 players will be competing in the skills competition, with five from Nelson and three from Canterbury.
and played chess at an amateur level. A full match includes 11 alternating rounds of about four minutes, with one minute breaks in between. One a bit closer to joining the Biathlon as an Olympic sport is equestrian vaulting, or gymnastics on horseback. Dating back to Roman times, it lost popularity before coming back into consciousness during the last 50 years. It was shown as an art at the 1984 and 1996 summer games. Polocrosse is another example. Played on horseback with lacrosse nets, the game originated in England but was made popular
in Australia, where inventing new sports is a bit of a habit. Universities are also renowned for their contributions. Basketball was originally invented to entertain students during the cold American winter. James Naismith was ordered to create a sport ‘fair for all players and free of rough play,’ so got players to throw a soccer ball into a hanging peach basket. While there has been the odd success story, it seems the students have the propensity to go too far. Take Ultimate Taser Ball, which combines running with the ball and...being a police officer? It’s all a bit hit and miss.
By Adam Poulopoulos Blenheim Muay Thai kickboxer Sinead Travers (pictured) is set to face a familiar foe, but is gunning for a different outcome. Travers faces Nelson’s Antje Schmidt in a South Island title welterweight bout in Nelson on Saturday, June 21. The fight is part of Fight Club Nelson’s fight night, dubbed ‘Night of Wrecking 14.’ In November last year, Travers faced Schmidt for the first time, but lost on points. She said preparation for the upcoming fight had been intense, with five two-hour sessions each week. “It’s been a big commitment and I’ve sacrificed a fair bit, like going out with friends and not drinking for two months before the fight. “I think about what I’m going to do in the ring each day - what I want to happen and what I don’t.
The Marlborough Redbacks volleyball squad play Hornby in two matches at Stadium 2000 this weekend. The games are tomorrow, beginning at 10am and noon. The Redbacks are sitting third on the table, and face must-win games from here on to secure their place in the top two in the Southern Zone, and qualify for Nationals.
RUGBY Clubs of Marlborough is showing the Junior Rugby World Cup on Monday between 9-11am, and 2-4pm. Marlborough Boys’ College baristas will be making free coffees for Clubs members.
“The love for it and my trainer (Rajai Shram) keep me focused.” The November bout was Travers’ second fight overall. She said finding regular opposition was not easy. “It depends on weight and experience. “I could fight someone who’s had a couple more fights than me or viceversa, but for girls it’s hard. “There aren’t a lot who do it in the South Island.” Despite the difficulties she said she hoped to take a trip to Thailand to see what it was like there. “It would be great to see the place where it comes from, and the people who do it. “I think it will be an eye-opener to see how they train.” Travers and Shram head to Nelson next Friday for weigh-in and to continue preparations for the bout.

Renegade Hockey to take off Hockey Marlborough hope a new take on an old favourite will attract teenagers to take up the game. Renegade Hockey, which is played on a quartersized field with side boards and a bigger, softerbouncing ball, is due to start up in the next week. The game is also played with no umpires and less rules than regular hockey. Hockey Marlborough spokesman Mike Treloar said the new game was ideal for those who wanted to have fun. “Hockey can be quite structured, but this is about grabbing a stick and having some fun without too many rules in a way that promotes hand-eye coordination and team play. Eight boys’ and eight girls’ teams will begin playing games of two 12-minute halves in a round-robin format over the next three months.
