Fire risk intensifies By Damian George A local firefighter is urging Marlburians to ensure controlled fires are thoroughly extinguished in coming months, as the threat of a

dry summer looms. Marlborough South principal rural fire officer Ross Hamilton says people are often not vigilant enough when putting out managed

fires, which poses the risk of it reigniting. “Pouring water on ash is much like pouring it on sand - it doesn’t penetrate,� he says.

Boomtown Brawlettes, Gina Pupich, Cheryl-lee Loach, Stacey Johnson and front Roze Tupe, skated their way through Sundays Blenheim Christmas Parade.

Crowd numbers may have been slightly lower than last year, but the 2010 Blenheim Christmas Parade did not fail to please. Squeals of delight rang throughout the streets of Blenheim on Sunday as 38 floats paraded in a succession of bright colours and cheerful displays. Marlborough 4 Fun chief executive Katrina Lange said organisers were thrilled with how smoothly the event ran. “We received great feedback on the pre-parade entertainment and it was really great to see the amazing amount of effort which went into the floats, the crowd really seemed to enjoy it,� she said. Winning the best float prize was the Phillipino Marlborough Community Club while Idea Services won second place and the Marlborough Motocross Club won third. In the walking group category the Marlborough District Brass Band won first place and the Blenheim and Districts Highland Pipe Band won second.

GETTING THE CHOP: Anne Bassett, Maria Zydenbos, Char Morison and Judy Newman are having their hair shaved off on Friday night - all in the name of charity.

Women lose locks for charity By Celeste Lodewyk Four gutsy women will have their hair shaved off on Friday night, all in the name of charity. Anne Bassett, Maria Zydenbos, Judy Newman and Char Morison have been busy raising money for the Marlborough Dragon Boat Team ‘Simply the Breast’ which needs to purchase a new boat. “We badly need a new one as the one we use now is old and wooden. The new ones are made of fibreglass and go much faster and cost approximately $14,000,� Simply the Breast team member Maria says. A teacher at Redwoodtown Kindergarten, Char was the first

to initiate the idea after deciding she wanted to raise money for breast cancer. “I have several close family members who have been affected by cancer so I knew I wanted to do something to raise money. After hearing about Simply the Breast’s need for a new boat we all teamed up, and what a fun way to fundraise,� she smiles. Owner of The Dressing Room (formally Jean Jones), Judy says the idea to shave her head was a great idea. “Some of my family are still coming to terms with it, she laughs. But everyone has been hugely supportive of us

Winery tour ticket giveaways

with donations and plenty of encouragement,� she says. Simply the Breast team members Maria and Anne are both breast cancer survivors themselves and part of the Simply the Breast Dragon Boat team. The team has been doing a lot of their own fundraising throughout the year but say the shave-off was something “different and very special�. “Come along Friday and show your support, we would love the encouragement,� Maria says. The shave-off will be held at 4:30pm at the Redwoodtown Community Hall.

The Blenheim Sun newspaper has two double passes to giveaway for The MORE FM Winery Tour 2011 which is being held at Villa Maria Estate on Friday, February 25. Simply name the three New Zealand music artists performing and tell us what you like most about The More FM Winery Tour. Write your answers down and mail to Sun Ticket Giveaway, P.O Box 634 Blenheim.

Blenheim has recorded its fourth-sunniest Spring since records began in 1947, but narrowly missed out to rival Nelson for most sunshine hours. Seasonal figures from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research [NIWA] recorded Blenheim as having 721 sunshine hours from September 1 to November 30, just nine hours behind Nelson’s 730. The figure is 32 hours fewer than Blenheim’s alltime record of 762 in 1997, while Nelson’s figure was its third highest since records for the city began in 1948. The two locations recorded New Zealand’s highest number of sunshine hours. Blenheim also recorded its third-highest Spring temperature since records began in 1932. The 31.0C recorded on November 18 is only 1.6C lower than the town’s highest recorded temperature of 32.8C in November 2007. NIWA says sunshine hours were above normal right across the country. Blenheim received a “near normal� 201mm of rain during the season, a result of a wet September followed by a dry October and November.

Firefighter warns people to be more vigilant this summer By Damian George CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1. “About 30 per cent of fires are caused by controlled or managed fires re-sparking and people need to be aware of that.� Mr Hamilton says people need to stir the ashes and pour plenty of water on them, or leave a sprinkler on them so the water sinks in. “One way you can find out if they are live is to use the back of your hand and just feel them. “If anybody is concerned, they can ring us and we’ll have a look at them.� The forecasted dry weather this summer will provide perfect conditions for blazes to initiate, he says. “There is a huge amount of fuel out there. We had one of the wettest winters in a while in Marlborough this year and that brings an awful lot of growth. When it dries up it gets like hay, and it’s really susceptible to burning. “It only takes one spark and it’s away.�

$EVROXW 9RGND /LWUH He says people should also keep fires at least five metres clear of any vegetation. Mr Hamilton is also advising people to avoid mowing lawns during the hottest part of the day, which is the other major cause of fires. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They hit a stone and a spark comes from that and then the next thing theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a fire,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s common sense things really.â&#x20AC;?

was felt most in the North Island with annual growth averaging 8.3 per cent. This was in contrast to the South Island, which only grew 4.4 per cent during the three-day period. Paymark CEO, Simon Tong, says that the early spend-up and subsequent lull in December sales to-date is another indicator that the retail landscape remains patchy. Even though sales were strong in November, we saw mixed results across the retail sectors, and this trend has continued into the first half of December,â&#x20AC;? says Simon Tong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the past we have seen patterns similar to this, with spending coming late in the month and if tradition stands, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll expect to see a final rush in the last two or three days prior to Christmas,â&#x20AC;? he adds.

Marlborough has slow Eftpos sales The majority of New Zealand retailers experienced positive growth in EFTPOS sales for November and the first twelve days of December, against last year. Marlborough was the only region in New Zealand to buck this trend posting negative digit growth in transactions [-7.2%] and [-6.5%] in spending. Some sectors posting increases over 10 per cent in the first three shopping days. This cheer was short-lived however, as sales across the country dropped off after December 3rd according to the latest figures from Paymark. EFTPOS terminals in supermarkets, restaurants/cafĂŠs and handyman/ decorating stores were working overtime during this period, posting annual growth above 10 per cent.

Weeding out dodgy tenants

90 not out...

By Damian George

Jim Howard recently celebrated his 90th birthday surrounded by family and friends. He has four great grand children and three grand children. In this photo are Jim and Noeline Howard with grand children Sarah Baker, Craig Perano and Grace Howard.

Local property managers are urging private landlords to use agencies to help prevent attracting dodgy tenants, but one woman on the receiving end of such a case says it is not always feasible. Blenheim landlord Sandra McNeilly was given no warning by a tenant who abandoned the property he was renting last week, leaving a mess and weeks of unpaid rent. Century 21 Marlborough property manager Rachael Smythe says people need to consider more seriously using professional assistance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a common story from a majority of private landlords,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All too often, private owners choose to manage properties themselves to save the expense of a property managers fees, which often results in large rent arrears and damage to their property.â&#x20AC;? She says using a property manager does not completely eliminate the risk of problematic tenants, but does greatly reduce it. Marlborough Property Management owner Jade Rogge says she wonders if everybody is aware property managers exist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just really unfortunate because there are ways to manage it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I take on a property, I take on everything, so the owner can pretty much step away.

Century 21 property manager Rachael Smythe says you can avoid this happening to your rental property.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look at prospective tenants, check their references, keep in contact with the owners, and take care of any maintenance, so the extra money ends up being worth it.â&#x20AC;? However, Mrs McNeilly says the problem comes back to cost, and in her case she would have been â&#x20AC;&#x153;running at a lossâ&#x20AC;? if she had used a property manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly, if we could afford it that would be the way to go,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the money this property generates is just enough to cover the mortgage, rates and insurance.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the main reason why we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t practical.â&#x20AC;? She says the property was managed by a land agent before she purchased it, but the state of the house convinced her to manage it herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They did such a poor job it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth it,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was guttering that was leaking badly - that was making the wood rot, and it all went unnoticed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we decided to manage it ourselves.â&#x20AC;?

Students brighten ward By Celeste Lodewyk Children and families spending time at Wairau Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new paediatric ward will be greeted with splashes of colour and the artistic talent of Witherlea School students. Year two students from rooms six and seven have donated two large canvas paintings and a beautiful book of their artworks to the ward. The artworks were formally presented on Monday to Amanda Gibbs, member of the community liaison group for the redevelopment of Wairau Hospital.

of those visiting or being treated,â&#x20AC;? she says. The students produced the artwork as part of Witherlea Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Values and Art programmes.

Sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs inspires mother to donate proceeds to special needs children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far money we have donated has helped to support a fishing trip down the Sounds as well as providing funding for a trip to the recent Special Olympics held in Nelson,â&#x20AC;? she says.

New trolleys a hit By Damian George The latest development in department store shopping, a cross between a shopping basket and a trolley, has proved a hit with shoppers at the Blenheim Warehouse. The plastic baskets are much bigger than conventional shopping baskets, and have wheels and an adjustable handle so shoppers can wheel it around the aisles. Blenheim Warehouse manager

Ian Daubney says the latest invention has been more popular than anticipated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got a call from store development saying they had this new trolley that we could try out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They gave us 40 to begin with but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that will be enough.â&#x20AC;? He says the trolleys have proved most popular with elderly people, who find them not as â&#x20AC;&#x153;clumsyâ&#x20AC;? as

the old trolleys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to push them around; they can just drag them around, and it gives you a bit more room to manoeuvre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also great for people who are just out to get five or six items, because it saves them carrying it around under their arms.â&#x20AC;? At this stage, The Warehouse is the only retail store in Blenheim with these trolleys.

By Celeste Lodewyk A chance meeting at a Saturday night dance has led to 60-years of happy marriage for local couple Brian and Bell Cameron. This Sunday will mark their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Diamondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; anniversary which they hope to celebrate quietly with family. Brian and Bell first met in Greymouth at a social dance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the moment I laid eyes on Bell I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to get them off,â&#x20AC;? smiles Brian. The couple later married on December 19 in Nelson and moved with their young family to Blenheim in 1957. Here, Brian worked at Farmers managing the home appliance department before going on to manage PSIS. Aside from raising three children Bell also worked at Millers Showroom for 26-years before the couple retired in 1989. The key they say to a happy and fruitful marriage is to keep the family close together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have always been a very close knit family which has kept us very happy throughout the years,â&#x20AC;? Bell says.

Trip home just the ticket By Damian George Former Renwick resident Donna Woolery arrived home from California on Wednesday and says she plans to make up for lost time by catching up with family and friends and â&#x20AC;&#x153;eating lots of yummy foodâ&#x20AC;?. Mrs Woolery was one of the 100 New Zealanders living abroad to win a trip home through an online competition set up by Marmite earlier this year. It is the first time since March last year she has been home, and just the fifth time in nine years since moving to Daly City - about 12 kilometres south of San Francisco - with her boyfriend at the time. She says one of the things she misses most is Kiwi food, and is intent on cashing in while she can. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I miss crumpets, chicken chips, sausage rolls, fish â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chips, jaffas and big round pieces of bacon,â&#x20AC;?

she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can sometimes find things like that over there, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually in British shops and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taste the same.â&#x20AC;? She says, while she enjoys life in the United States, there is no place like home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the little things you miss, even looking out the window at your backyard. Where I live we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a backyard.â&#x20AC;? Marmite set up the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bringing the kiwis homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; competition to commemorate its centennial year this year, challenging Kiwis living overseas to convince a judging panel they deserved a trip home. Adding weight to Donnaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pitch was the fact none of her family in New Zealand had yet seen her baby daughter Ava, who is eight months old. Her sister Julie says she is rapt to have the three sisters - herself,

Blenheim has it â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the bagâ&#x20AC;?

Donna and Linda - reunited. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to have the sisters together. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel right to have such a close relative so far away.â&#x20AC;?

Apart from stocking up on marmite, Donna planned to have a barbecue with family and friends on Sunday, before returning to California (Tuesday) yesterday.

A popular New Zealand game show is coming to Blenheim in the new year. Television series â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the Bagâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, hosted by Pio Terei and Stacey Morrison, will be filmed at Marlborough Girls High School on January 11 as the show hits the road for its third series. In each show, contestants are called from the audience to answer three questions and a subsequent chance to play for â&#x20AC;&#x153;the money or the bagâ&#x20AC;?. Pio says he is looking forward to bringing the show to Blenheim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about giving people a great night out, celebrating our small towns and the people who live in themâ&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the Bag will also be filmed in Kaikoura on January 28 and, in what is a New Zealand first, on the Interislander Ferry on January 25.

White vinegar. It cleans everything.

I prefer to use boiling water and lemon juice to clean clothes.

Vinegar can be used for all manner of things. And I also use good old soap and water.

To get the scales off your teeth, you can use baking soda. To clean you can mix baking soda and white vinegar. And to give it a minty taste, just add peppermint essence.

White vinegar, because it cleans everything.

Rather than using spray, I use newspaper to clean the glass on the fireplace.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a name? A brief history: Horne Place With Mark Stevenson First National

Horne Place: On May 31, 1887, Dr Horne, one of the oldest settlers in the district, perished in the fire that had started the night before at the Criterion Hotel. It destroyed 20 other premises, most of the commercial centre of Blenheim. The report, telegraphed throughout the country the day after the fire, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The scene baffles description, and the fire seemed beyond human effort.â&#x20AC;? The report said Dr Horne was known to have slept there, and nothing could be heard of him that day. Dr Horne was reported to have been called when the fire broke out shortly before 2am and he got up, but all hope of his being alive was soon lost. The amount of damage was estimated at about ÂŁ50,000 at a time when a working man received an average of just under ÂŁ77 a year. The late Ken Berry in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scrutiny on the Countyâ&#x20AC;? recorded that Dr Horne had died rescuing his son. The smouldering ruins were searched, but Dr Horneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body was never found. Ken Berry quoted the Cyclopaedia of New Zealand 1906: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Doctor Horne was highly esteemed for his excellent qualities and his sympathy and active kindness in times of sickness and adversity endeared him to all.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Berry also records him as a member of the Omaka Road Board: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Judging by the frequency with which his name appears in the minutes â&#x20AC;Ś a most industrious member.â&#x20AC;?

Tennis problems continue Dear Ed I am writing this letter in support of Michael Mooney and the problems he is still having with the Marlborough Tennis Association. I have to admit that I was quite shocked to learn that he still faces extreme difficulties running his coaching business here in Marlborough due to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cultureâ&#x20AC;? within in the Association that has been prevalent for years. I sincerely thought that that had changed with people moving on but apparently not so. For a brief time I was Secretary/ Treasurer of the Marlborough Tennis Association. That is when I discovered the â&#x20AC;&#x153;cultureâ&#x20AC;? that is unfortunately still rampant among committee members. It was a common occurrence for committee membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; children to be chosen for representative teams/events ahead of others who were the better players. In addition funding would also be made available to ensure that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;chosenâ&#x20AC;? players could compete. Funding was often targeted at a select

few rather than the whole group for which the funding had been raised. Michael was constantly undermined. I can recall meetings where even though the agenda had been circulated prior, the Coaching report would be brought forward and discussed while Michael was still on the court coaching. Meetings were originally scheduled for 7.30pm but were changed to 6pm to accommodate a few and of course was not at all suitable for Michael. I learnt pretty quickly that it was not a good idea to suggest that Michael should be brought up to date with the meetings discussions/decisions. If certain individuals werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t selected by Michael the representative lists presented to meetings would be adjusted to include them at the expense of the ousted players. I look forward to the day when Michael and the Marlborough Tennis Assocation can finally celebrate an amicable working relationship, because ultimately the winners will be the up and coming players of the future. Shane Stevenson

Offensive ad Dear Ed I am writing to express my rage at a recent marketing campaign by Moa, which suggests that only homosexuals would drink low carb beer. The advert shows a man wearing a tshirt with the slogan â&#x20AC;&#x153;Low carb B(Q)eers; Moa Beer - full strengthâ&#x20AC;?. As a gay woman, I find this offensive,

tasteless and derogatory, and frankly I question how and why the ad was approved and released. To suggest that someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sexual orientation determines what beer they drink is homophobic bullying, and it is not acceptable. Nicole Brasch.

it disgusting that Moa Beer are insulting us so publicly. Just because we are gay or bisexual does not mean we are inferior (or â&#x20AC;&#x153;less manâ&#x20AC;?) than the straight guy next door! This is typical of societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tendency to stereotype.. Such negative portrayal in society of being queer cannot be helping the high suicide rate among queer youth!

Flexing their mussels Local couple Chris and Trish Redwood talk to Celeste Lodewyk about their global success. The seafood brand â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Omega Seafoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is a name written on many chefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; produce lists all over the world. But what Marlburians may not be aware of is that behind the brand name is a local family who built their business from the ground up. Owners Chris and Trish Redwood own P.H.R Processing Ltd located in the old freezing works factory at Cloudy Bay Business Park, Riverlands. Upon meeting the lively couple, it is obvious by the pride in their voices that launching their Omega Seafood brand worldwide has been a dream come true. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been a long road to get where we are now but it has been a worthwhile journey for us toward achieving our goals, and a great renewal story for the building we occupy,â&#x20AC;? Trish smiles. Their story begins with Chris who was born in Blenheim and raised on Forsyth Island. This remote head of the Marlborough Sounds is today home to a majority of the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mussel farms. Stemming from a farming family, Chris went on to pursue mussel farming and after graduating from Lincoln University in 1979, leased water space from another farm in Wakatahuri Bay. During this time Chris met and married Dunedin born Trish. Together they slowly built up their business as â&#x20AC;&#x153;opportunities aroseâ&#x20AC;?, purchasing more water space in other areas. Years later after being hit by the 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic downturn Chris and Trish decided to sell and purchased another farm in Seddon. The opportunity soon rose to start their own processing factory while their mussel farms were being managed for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The building here used to be the freezing works. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to see that after one business closed, another opened and has continu grow,â&#x20AC;? Trish says. This is where Chris and Trishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision of producing premium cooked mussels and clams which can be eaten straight from the packet came to life. Once harvested, the mussels are delivered to the factory to be cleaned, scrubbed, partially debearded, put into pouches, vacuum packed and finally cooked in an industrial retort. Omega Seafood products can b used as a substitute for live musse clams and eaten straight from t

heated before serving. They contain no additives but will keep in the fridge for 12 months, offering clear convenience benefits to both consumers and chefs, Chris says. The clams are harvested from Golden Bay, bathed in natural seawater to release any grit before being inspected and placed into a pouch. The pouch is then also vacuum sealed and cooked under high pressure in a steam retort. In 2004 Omega Seafood Cooked Gourmet Mussels were launched and went on to win the New Zealand Hospitality Magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best New Seafood Item. The following year, Chris and Trish also won the overall global Grande Prix dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Elite for the Foodservice category at the European Seafood Exposition in Belgium. A majority of Omega Seafood products are currently being exported to countries such as Hong Kong, Thailand, South Africa, America, the United Kingdom, Vietnam, Australia and Dubai. An even greater feat for Chris and Trish was having their product stocked by New Zealand supermarket chains; something they say is very difficult. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This industry is tough because there are so many different products. So we are proud to have Omega Seafood nationwide in Foodstuffs Stores and more recently, with South Island Countdown stores just this summer,â&#x20AC;? Trish says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since launching the Omega Seafood brand and winning the 2005 global award, it has reassured us that all those years and our hard work have paid off,â&#x20AC;? says Trish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long time to be an overnight success,â&#x20AC;? Chris jokes.

Cover with stock, stir and then cover with a circular piece of baking paper on top of liquid and then a lid or tinfoil. Place in an oven at 200 °C and cook for approx 20 minutes. The stock should be 2/3 absorbed by the rice at this stage. Remove from oven and mix in the red pepper and peas. Replace lid (including paper) and return to the oven till the moisture has almost disappeared from the pot and the rice is al dente. Add shellfish and mix thoroughly.

Two way radio specialist helps local farmers Gone are the days of unnecessary traveling back and forth between vineyard and farm blocks monitoring pumps, wind machines and irrigation systems. Now it can be as easy as using a laptop computer from home to collect data and even control certain machinery via two-way radio across Marlborough, says Marine Electrical Solutions Ltd owner Ian Eatherley. Ian moved to Marlborough six-years ago after owning a marine electrical business in Bermuda and later sailing around the world in a yacht. His latest business Landcom has since become Marlboroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only specialist commercial radio dealer. Based in Picton and run by Ian and his apprentice Matt Michel, the business is completely mobile covering the whole of Marlborough and beyond. Not only does Ian specialise in business two-way radio sales and rentals, truckie AM CB and PRS/ UHF CB radios, but he also installs private radio repeaters, offers a radio hire service, carries out radio installations in vehicles as well as providing radio telemetry sales, installation and service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With my radio telemetry system you can remotely start something or collect all kinds of data by radio using your computer in Marlborough,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can collect temperature readings from different vineyard blocks, start up a frost machine and turn it off, monitor tanks etc- all without wires.â&#x20AC;? LANDCOM has installed a number of repeaters for farmers who own large properties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Up to now many farmers have had no way to communicate with their staff, but if we install a repeater tower at the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest point then handheld radio communication becomes available across the farm,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We encourage Marlborough businesses to get on

This repeater installed on a Marlborough farm enables handheld radio communication right across the property.

to our repeater system and do away with cellphone bills and at the same time keep your whole team in contact. We offer expert knowledge and service and can provide a solution to any application, contact us today,â&#x20AC;? Ian says.

Our sales pitch is simple - ride

it.

At 32-hp, the Outlander 400 delivers the most power and best power-to-weight ratio in the 400 cc class, says Marlborough Trials centre owner Brendan Wadsworth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even more powerful than the Yamaha Grizzly 450 with features like a Digitally Encoded Security System. Now you know what it has, just wait until you see what it does,â&#x20AC;? he says. For more information call in and see the team at Marlborough Trials Centre on Grove Road.

By Damian George The Nelson Marlborough District Health Board [NMDHB] has extended its consultation on how to improve opthamology services until late January, to allow it more time to receive public feedback on submissions. The DHB is working on ways to create a more efficient service which will allow more patients to receive treatment, following a report from the Rutherford Initiative which showed improvements could be made. It would now like to hear from the public and staff about the options that have been put forward, before a decision is made in late February. The proposed options for the future development of the service were based on four years of research. One option is to outsource all or part of ophthalmology services at no cost to patients. The second is to maintain the provision of the service in-house, but with changes to models of care that would free up specialist consultants to see more patients with higher needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Either of these options would give quicker, sooner, more convenient treatment to ophthalmology patients,â&#x20AC;? medical surgical service director Dr Peter Bramley says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While there are no on-going savings made with the outsourcing option, there is a one-off saving of $2.5million. This represents the amount that would be saved on the redevelopment of the surgical outpatients department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the option of reconfiguration of inhouse services, there is a potential annual saving of $400,000 if fully implemented.â&#x20AC;?

League club draws interest By Damian George Marlborough Lions Rugby League president Shaun Tipene says he is â&#x20AC;&#x153;quite amazedâ&#x20AC;? by how quickly his push to include a Blenheim-based side in the Tasman competition has come together. Tipene undertook to form a club only a couple of months ago after moving to Blenheim from Christchurch and deciding the sportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s profile needed to be lifted in the region. Already, the club has a chairman, a secretary, uniform designs, and the interest of more than 30 players who took part in a trial two weeks ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve actually been quite

Marlborough Lions Rugby League president Shaun Tipene.

amazed by the response weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had and how many players there

would be to play league here,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s halfway there. Training and management for the team is sorted, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a matter of finalising selections and then finding sponsorship.â&#x20AC;? The club is all set to play in the Tasman league competition this winter, and Tipene is currently trying to attract a team from Kaikoura, aswell as a team from Christchurch, to play a pre-season game. Funding remains the biggest hurdle, and the club is working hard to draw sponsors in order to supply the $3500 needed to kit the team out. He says the word from Tasman

Rugby League is that sponsorship would need to be obtained from Nelson-based company Finnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bar and Grill, but that does not quite fit the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; profile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are trying to be a community and family based organisation,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be smoke-free, alcoholfree, so we want to try and get a major sponsor thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a bar. We want somewhere where we are able to let the kids in as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also want to be a locally represented club, so we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go round wearing a Nelson company on our shirts.â&#x20AC;? The Lions will be holding their second and final open trial on Sunday at Pollard Park.

Kaliph gallops away with title By Damian George A local horse has blitzed the field to record a remarkable victory in the Endurance NZ World FEI Qualifying Series held in Waihopai Valley on Saturday. WD Amir Ibn Kaliph, rode by Blenheim man Kevin Pragley, completed the 120 kilometre race in a time of 7 hours, 12 minutes, 21 seconds - more than an hour ahead of second-placed B/Boy Named Sue. The Marlborough event was the third of six qualifying races to be held throughout the country, with the world championships scheduled for either England or France in 16 months. “Five kilometres from home I knew I had it,” Pragley says of his comfortable victory. “In the end I was just cruising.” Trailing fellow race leader Silands Mia Bella by 30 seconds during the third lap, Kaliph sprung into action to leave the horse, and the rest of the field, for dead. “He started winding up, wanting to go. That’s quite a big gap in horse racing but he caught up in about 400 yards. “He wasn’t going to be left behind - no way.”

It is not by accident the purebred Arab stallion also collected the prize for the best conditioned horse in Saturday’s race. Much like the art of endurance racing itself, Kaliph’s success has come as a result of a well-paced, carefully calculated run to the top. “This is his fourth year racing. For two years he never raced, I just took him round slowly and built him up,” Pragley says. “I’m extremely proud. It’s an honour to have a horse like this. “He’s got the mental aptitude to do it. He wants to go out, he wants to run.” Kaliph also qualified for the World Equestrian Games held every four years in Lexington, Kentucky, but the excessive cost of getting him to the United States - in excess of $70,000 - prevented him from competing. The Leo Nisbett Memorial Trophy up for grabs on Saturday is named after a former competitor who died while competing in the race ten years ago, and did a “huge amount” for the sport. Fellow Marlborough riders Penelope Valk and Kim Swann finished in fifth and sixth place respectively.

Kevin Pragley stands proudly with Kaliph, who beat the field in Saturday’s Endurance NZ World FEI Qualifying Series in Waihopai.
