Saturday night’s $1m Lotto First Division prize was shared equally between two tickets from Blenheim and Hastings which have both won $500,000. While the New Zealand Lotteries Commission has been contacted by the “very excited” winner from Blenheim, the commission’s

communication manager Karen Jones said on Tuesday that no official claim had yet been put in. “They are deciding what their next move is and have asked us to release no details.” Blenheim New World supermarket owner Mark Elkington said there had been a lot of

interest, with many people coming in to check their tickets. This was the shop’s second big Lotto winner this year he said, the first being in March. With big winning tickets also sold in March in 2007 and 2009, the outlet has developed a reputation as a lucky shop.

Diamond leader for Weight Watchers By Damian George It seems if you are planning to lose weight, Blenheim is the place to be. The local Weight Watchers weekly seminar has been judged the most successful in the country at the annual Weight Watchers Leaders’ Seminar, held in Auckland recently. Blenheim woman Heather Bowers, who runs the seminars, beat 140 other leaders around the country to take out the “diamond leader of the year� award. “I was so humbled because it’s the members’ dedication and hard work that make weight watchers so successful,� she says. “I facilitate a group of really cool people and just to be recognised is awesome.� The leader of the year award is based on the personal weight loss of Miss BIGGEST LOSER: Weight Watchers “diamond leader of the Bowers and her meeting team, the year� Heather Bowers [left] and one of her members Krissy profitability of the meetings, and the weight loss of the members. Armstrong, who has lost 40kg in just over a year.

“It’s a very serious topic and a lot of people come for medical reasons, but we do have fun. “We laugh and cry and cheer each other on. I think that’s why we’re so successful – it’s not just a boring old meeting.� Miss Bowers says Blenheim weight watchers average over a tonne of total weight loss each year. Last year’s “slimmer of the year� lost a massive 68kg, more than half her initial body weight. “Everybody who comes in ready to make a commitment loses weight,� she says. The success did not end there. Miss Bowers also won this year’s “weight watchers healthy life� award, which recognises weight loss success and lifestyle change among weight watchers members and leaders. Earlier this year, local staff member Suzanne Hatch claimed the “meeting team member excellence� award for best staff member in the country.

By Damian George Two Queen Charlotte College students are set to give their tourism career aspirations a major kickstart this summer. Year 12 students Alora Johnson, 16, and Ben Molloy, 17, were selected to fill two new positions in the Picton “i-SITE� created especially by Destination Marlborough for students with visitor industry ambitions. Both completed a week of training during the recent school holidays, and will work full-time over the summer holidays and one weekend day each

after that. “Working in an i-SITE and meeting visitors face to face every day is the ideal way to earn your stripes in this industry,� says Destination Marlborough general

manager Tracy Johnston. “The great experience they will take away from a summer working in the i-SITE will position them well for future roles in tourism.� Picton-born Ben, who

is studying tourism this year, is described by the college as having excellent relationship skills and a great sense of humour, attributes which will be well-recieved in the role. Alora, who grew up in Picton, is secretary of the student council and leader of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;SADDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; [students against drink-driving] committee. She says the students will remain in the roles until they decide to move on, and the intention is to continue the programme based on the success of this season.

At meetings held simultaneously in both Nelson and Blenheim on Tuesday October 19, local Medlab South staff were advised of a proposal to have the bulk of routine community tests analysed in Christchurch. The proposal, jointly developed by Nelson Marlborough DHB and MedLab South, would not affect hospital laboratory services. The proposal would see laboratory contract prices held for the next two years. NMDHB spokesperson Mark Garisch said the DHB was satisfied that MedLab South could deliver the contracted services within agreed timeframes.

Booklet challenges

Blood trail leads Police to their man Police followed a fresh blood trail in the CBD in the early hours of Saturday morning to find a 22-year old male. He had come off second best after hitting a window at Red Hot Fashions at about 1.20am. Blenheim Police reported that the man was believed to have had a disagreement with his partner. He then hit the window, cutting himself badly and setting off the burglar alarm. A security guard alerted police who were able to track him along Queen Street, across

HELP AT HAND: Marlborough Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; College year 13 student Jess Rush encourages young women to read a new booklet launched at the college last week.

By Celeste Lodewyk A powerful new booklet was launched by local students and youth services last week challenging the attitudes of young women to abuse in relationships. The pink coloured booklet titled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How OK are your Relationshipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was produced by the Safer Communities section of the Marlborough District Council, and included input from Youth Transition Services, local youth and students from Marlborough Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; College. Inside, the booklet talks about the different types of abuse, how to recognise it and where to find help. Already proving popular with MGC students, the book was launched at at BBQ last Friday at the college and was attended by Carla Brownie, womens advocate/ councillor for Womens Refuge and Vonda Walker, Marlborough advocate for children and young people who witness family violence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I like most is that students wrote the booklet themselves in consultation with the Marlborough

Violence Intervention Project and other local agencies, so it is in their language and presented their way,â&#x20AC;? says Carla. According to Carla, a significant number of young women utilise the services of Marlborough Womens Refuge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see quite a percentage of teenagers come through from all walks of life who have suffered emotional, physical and sexual abuse including date rape which is a big problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The message really needs to reach our young women that abuse is not accepetible in any form and there is a lot of help in our community for them, and this booklet outlines all of this,â&#x20AC;? she says. The booklet is being distributed to students at local colleges and schools and soon may go national, says Vonda. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the fight to lower violence and abuse in our communtiy, we share what we can so for this booklet to go national it would be a wonderful achievement for those involved,â&#x20AC;? she says.

High Street, then down the alley beside the council building off High Street. They found him at Blenheim School and called an ambulance at 1.57am. He was taken to Wairau Hospital for treatment, including a stitched hand. He was later discharged. On Tuesday the trail of blood on the pavements, splashed up walls and pooled on the ground near the council offices was still clearly visible. A staff member at Red Hot

Fashions said that they had inspected the stock and the only damage, apart from the window, was a spot of blood on one or two garments. Police said yesterday a decision was still to be made on whether charges would be laid.

Car show popular By Celeste Lodewyk. Pictonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emergency Centre may still be around $800,000 away from completion, but events such as Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All Makes Car Show are doing their bit to help. Show organiser and member of the local Holden Club Sharon Rendel came up with the idea of hosting a car show to raise funds for a worthy cause. Thirty-nine new and old cars were entered into the show by owners as far as Christchurch, and place at Picton School. Although organisers say they are â&#x20AC;&#x153;still countingâ&#x20AC;?, proceeds from the gold coin gate donation and show raffle have already come to $500 - an amount greatly received by the Trust for the Picton Emergency Centre. The Sun caught up with Trust secretary Ros Benson at the show who went along in support of the fundraiser.

First council meeting The first formal meeting of the new Marlborough District Council, following the triennial election, is to be held on Thursday October 28 at 3pm. Business will include the election of the Deputy Mayor, following a recommendation by Mayor Alistair Sowman. The make-up of council committees

will also be discussed. The new councillors will be given information about their role, including explanations of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act, the local Authorities Members Interest Act, sections of the Crimes Act, the Secret Commission Act and the Securities Act.

Relay for life - enrol now Registrations are now being taken for The Marlborough Cancer Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth Relay for Life. The overnight event will be held on Saturday March 5 and it costs $200 to register a team of up to 10 members with a charge of $20 for extra members. You can register online with a credit

card or contact Hilary Gill on 579 4379 for a registration form. This major fund-raising event is for people of any age and level of fitness. Corporate groups, families, youth and service groups, community and sporting clubs all participate, taking turns to walk or run through the night.

Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market changes CAR FAN: Four-year-old Crystal Browne found her favourite car at the All Makes Car Show in Picton on Saturday.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I appreciate a nice car,â&#x20AC;? she laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is so wonderful to see locals getting behind the Emergency Centre and showing their support.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still have around $800,000 needed to pay for the centre, so every little bit helps. We really are grateful for everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support,â&#x20AC;? she says.

On Sunday October 31, Marlborough Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market will run out of Pollard Park. It will be located next to the Forrest Estate Tennis Courts on Parker Street. The committee has announced that this is a temporary venue, being trialled during preparations for the A&P Show the following week.

The market will not trade on Sunday November 7 this year, as it clashes with Hunters Garden Marlborough Fete and A&P Show Day. They will however, open on Thursday November 4 in Market Place in front of the Forum, in conjunction with the Hunters Garden Marlborough Week and Hospice Marlboroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Strawberry Festival.

Local ASB staff are delighted with the $10,000 donated to St John after their marathon 24-hour walk from Nelson ASB to Blenheim ASB. Three staff from Blenheimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Business Banking section were part of the twelveperson team in the 24-hour-long event. It started at Nelson ASB at 6.30pm on Wednesday October 20. Blenheim section manager Graeme Andrews said their customers had supported them really well with sponsorships for the 115k relay. He took part with some Nelson staff in the first section through the Maitai Valley,

then over the Maungatapu saddle during the night. There was time for a few hours sleep at the Pelorus Bridge before meeting Robyn Breen and Karyn Ryan from Blenheim, along with the rest of the Nelson ASB contingent. They started again at 6am, taking it in turns to do 10 kilometre legs and picked up another $560 along the way. More FM had done radio spots during the relay, and Meaters Marlborough had provided some â&#x20AC;&#x153;really yummyâ&#x20AC;? food, said Graeme. St John, which is to benefit from the

fundraiser for a new Tasman events vehicle, had also provided great support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had an ambulance all the way. But we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need it,â&#x20AC;? Graeme said. The weather had been relatively fine until they reached Renwick, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then it became pretty miserable. Rain and hail.â&#x20AC;? So there was no hanging around for celebrations at the bank when they finished. â&#x20AC;?We just went off to the pub!â&#x20AC;? Anyone wishing to make further donations to the St John events vehicle can do so at the ASB in Blenheim.

Sun readers have their say... What were your thoughts on the attack on the volunteer fire fighters?

Pat Wynne Blenheim Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just shocking. Emergency services should always have some sort of protection. These guys are volunteers.

Wairau warning Taylor Pass Road is said to be named after Joseph Taylor, a master gunsmith originally from Yorkshire. It seems he was first Nelson-based, but local historian John Orchard said Taylor was believed to have been the first blacksmith in Blenheim, pre-1859, when it was still known as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Beaverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. He said the replica blacksmith shop in Brayshaw Park carries the sign â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Joseph Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. H.A.H. Insullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Marlborough Place Namesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, states that Joseph is also believed to have assisted William Budge, a surveyor, in his work in Marlborough. Insull says the naming of the Taylor River and Taylor Pass Road came about after an expedition where Joseph came upon a band of wild boars which â&#x20AC;&#x153;treedâ&#x20AC;? him overnight. Next morning, he found they had beaten a track all round the tree. This incident became very well known, leading to the naming of both the river and the pass. Joseph is reported to have lost an arm during the explosion of a cannon at an early Nelson regatta, and an eye to a piece of flying firewood but, while possibly accident-prone, he appears to have been a man of indomitable spirit. His grandson, A. W. Taylor, was for many years superintendent of the Blenheim Fire Brigade and Mr Orchard said the late Captain Noel Taylor from Blenheim said he was a grandson of Joseph the blacksmith. Joseph Taylor died in 1896 aged 82 years. Proudly sponsored by...

â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the life of any business there needs to be rejuvenation and growth, and because we believe in Marlborough we are putting our name to our business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; McCormick & Co.â&#x20AC;? Previously known as Herds Jewellers, owners Pam and Ray McCormick first purchased the business from Noel Herd in 2006. A long time customer of Noelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Pam and Ray came from Ashburton to Blenheim one Christmas and called into the shop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came in to purchase jewellery, but instead we were offered the business as he was due to retire,â&#x20AC;? Pam says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From there we have continued

to build upon the quality that was already established. Our plans for the business included the shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent refurbishment,â&#x20AC;? she says. The shop provides a relaxing dĂŠcor with a seating area where customers can sit and confidentially discuss their jewellery requirements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the most important things for us is to make the shop comfortable for customers,â&#x20AC;? Pam says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In keeping with where we want to be at the top of the jewellery market, we feel the shop compliments that while still retaining itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warm and friendly welcome.â&#x20AC;?

Despite positive feedback from the refurbishments, Pam insists that the basis of the business remains the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;McCormick & Co has the same owners, same loyal staff and what we consider invaluable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the same customer service.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our renovations reflect our commitment to the future of Marlborough and treated the shop refit as we would the jewellery we provide to Marlborough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We researched on the basis of providing something equal to the best in the market and have always believed that you aim for the best and we believe Marlborough does, and should expect the best,â&#x20AC;? Pam says.

OFFICIAL RE-OPENING! Independ in design

flair

&

McCormick & Co is an independent jeweller and with that comes the affiliation to the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest jewellery buying group. Having autonomy over our buying allows us to provide for many different jewellery tastes and preferences within New Zealand, and even within our region. We have very discerning customers who wish to buy locally and not have to take all their business out of town. Being independent means we can cater for their own particular style and provide individual pieces, as simple or as showy as they choose.

Our investment in the local community is endorsed by engaging not only a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;jewellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; but an internationally trained goldsmith (Michelle) who crafts the jewellery, this distinction is apparent. Michelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designs can be as innovative or as traditional as the customer requires. Our staff members have undertaken individual, independent courses of study within the jewellery industry, giving us a professional knowledge base recognised by the elite in the industry. This is part of our commitment to providing you the best â&#x20AC;&#x201C; always.

Pure muscle for this retiree David Chant talks to Celeste Lodewyk news2@blenheimsun.co.nz

B

Blenheim retiree David Chant first learnt to drive in his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ford Model A, a far cry from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pure muscleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; he now drives. Today at age 60-years, you would most likely hear David coming before seeing him pass by in a rumbling V8 or riding a classic Harley Davidson motorcycle. His dedication and passion for rebuilding classic cars, bikes and boats, he says has been a dream he has worked toward all his life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never wanted to spend my retirement sitting around doing nothing, I wanted to in the shed doing what I love. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has taken me many years to collect the many cars and bikes I have now, but when you have a passion and work hard toward it you eventually achieve your goals,â&#x20AC;? he smiles. Arriving at Davidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home, the quiet country air quickly becomes supercharged as he fires up the 360 V8 engine of his 1979 CL Charger. This particular car David tells me puts out 280hp. But with a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;shot of NOSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; it puts out another 100hp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It puts you in your seat alright. The best time recorded on the drag track without NOS was 13.6 for a quarter mile. I could imagine it would be in the early 12â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with NOS.â&#x20AC;? Grinning from ear to ear, David lovingly wipes down the vibrant purple body of his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pride and joyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; as he shares his love for classic cars and bikes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it but I got my drivers license in my mumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Model A,â&#x20AC;? he laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I then went on to buy a Morris Eight and upgraded it by putting in a Morris 1000 engine, increasing the horsepower from eight to 20.â&#x20AC;? Originally from Auckland, David has lived in Blenheim for the past 15-years and is now â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;semi-retiredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; from being an electrician.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would also say this to youth as well. Forget the drugs and heavy drinking, find a dream, focus on it and put in the hard work to get there. Before you know it your dreams will have come true.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;?

He says he can easily spend around six hours per day working on his collection which not only includes eight classic cars, but four Harley Davidson motorcycles as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, not all of them are going,â&#x20AC;? he points out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some are waiting on rebuilds and others are waiting on a paint job before I can put them back together,â&#x20AC;? he says.

In his collection, David has a 1974 and a 1996 Camaro, five chargers, a 1978 Porsche 911 and a 1923 Model A Roadster. Not to mention his Harley Davidson collection including a 1200 Sportster, a 1986 FXRS 1340, 1969 and 1970 Low Rider models. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to race in Christchurch when I was younger but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 60years old now, I like tinkering on

them and cruising the weekends,â&#x20AC;? he chuckles. One of his current projects is an 1877 CL Charger Drifter, the last of the limited edition special chargers introduced at the end of the production run. This he is particularly passionate about, with plans to restore back to its original colours and design. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing better than

Filmmaker has big plans Born and raised in Invercargill, Matt Inns middle right, wanted to find a course that would support his career aims in filmmaking. The Southern Institute of Technologyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bachelor of Digital Media seemed to be an ideal opportunity, offering small classes and access to over $300,000 worth of top-of-theline equipment and software. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, with the Zero Fee Scheme Matt has saved more than $17,000 on tuition fees â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what an undeniable bonus! â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the time that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been there, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned a heck of a lot from the projects Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing. The most important thing has been making the most of the opportunities Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been presented with. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a first year student I directed The Flying Monk, which was about Eilmer of Malmesbury, a medieval monk who made one of manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earliest recorded attempts at flight. We won a couple of small awards at festivals in the US - Platinum Award at

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The greatest part of it was the experience gained from just being there and meeting a number of great people, including many in the Kiwi film industry, who Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve since been fortunate enough to receive a great deal of support from. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stress how vital such opportunities are in trying to become a filmmaker and none of it would have been achievable if SIT hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t got me there to participate in all that crucial networking!â&#x20AC;?

He has worked at the top of his field with some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading chefs, he has worked in renowned award winning restaurants around Australasia such as Taupoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world famous Huka Lodge, Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Three Hatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Level Forty One, the award-winning Sydney Opera House restaurant Guillaume at Bennelong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The basic cooking skills I was taught at Tai Poutini Polytechnic helped set up my career. It was the perfect start for me and I still apply the knowledge that I learnt during even the most sophisticated of dining preparations.â&#x20AC;? Ensor now works in Jakarta as the Executive Chef for the exclusive SHY Restaurant, describing his job as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;unrealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Culinary Arts Programme Co-ordinator and Chef Tutor Alex Hayward says the 34-week programme suits students who have made a conscious decision to become a chef and are motivated and passionate about food. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not training people how to cook, we are training people to be professional chefs,â&#x20AC;? he says. Ensor attributes his success to the motivation and basic skills the polytechnic gave him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was younger I was really in to rugby and hunting.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not training people how to cook, we are training people to be professional chefsâ&#x20AC;? Alex Hayward motivated me to apply my dedication and focus towards my career as a professional chef as well and made it fun. He taught me the basic skills I needed to start my career and secure a professional position in a serious industry and I am forever grateful for that,â&#x20AC;? Ensor says.

Aoraki Polytechnic students at the Timaru campus.

Aoraki has lots to offer Aoraki Polytechnic is one of the South Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tertiary education success stories. Originally located in Oamaru, it has grown to take in campuses in Timaru, Ashburton, Christchurch and Dunedin. Recently a small survey done by the polytechnic was performed to establish why both locals and people from much further afield were choosing to study at Aoraki Polytechnic. There were five main points raised by most people surveyed.

These included quality tutors and friendly, helpful staff, smaller class sizes therefore more direct tutor contact and the close proximity of all campuses to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Southern Playgroundâ&#x20AC;?. And although Dunedin temperatures get a little low for the most part, the survey showed their campuses were not far enough south to make daily weather conditions too cold. It was also far more economical to study in the South Island and generally the cost of living was lower.

Wide range of appeal to NMIT courses NMITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marlborough campus is well known both nationally and internationally for its specialisation in viticulture and aviation, though that is far from all it offers. It has its own vineyard and purpose-built winery and aircraft maintenance engineering students train at RNZAF Base Woodbourne. There they receive hands-on training with real aircraft and can use the facilities on base. Those courses are part of the 20 full time programmes as well as a number of part-time and short course options offered to 240

students each and every year. There is a training hair salon â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hair Savvyâ&#x20AC;? and a beauty salon â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enhanceâ&#x20AC;?. Other courses range from an introduction to study, to business and administration and hospitality. There is also a certificate and diploma in Early Childhood Education, run in association with the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand. Contact NMIT on 0800 222 443 for more information about the training options available to you in this area.

Seniors showcase love affair with photography By Celeste Lodewyk Who says seniors cannot master new age technology? For the 16 Senior Net Digital Camera group members who have been learning the art of digital photography, technology â&#x20AC;&#x153;aint that badâ&#x20AC;?. Celebrating their new found passion, the group is hosting a photographic exhibition this Friday from 11am to 5pm in the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room on the first floor of the Post Office building.

Each member will have on display five of their best and favored works for free public viewing. Co-cordinator of the event Pauline Gibson says a lot of their members have come a long way, learning digital photography from scratch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we first began the group I struggled with some of the primary camera functions, I never even had a computer until three-years ago,â&#x20AC;&#x153; she laughs.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;But like all of our members I have gone from strength to strength, which is what this exhibition is all about. Sharing our enthusiasm for photography with everyone.â&#x20AC;? The group was formed over two-years ago by Eric Henderson. Members meet fortnightly to set assignment topics, share ideas and learn more about the advancing digital art of photography.

Pet day has long tradition By Claudia Marie, RVAS One of the most anticipated annual events took place once again Tuesday and Wednesday last week at Rai Valley Area School, where the local community had a tremendous time full of fun-filled activities. Pet Day looks back at a long tradition of over 25 years, says organizer Angela Radcliffe, Deputy Principal at RVAS. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The day is a wonderful opportunity for our kids of all ages to demonstrate their farming skills and apply their knowledge of healthy living, as well as their environmental awareness.â&#x20AC;? she says. A huge array of categories that prizes were conferred for was designed to get all children involved and creative. For the indoor exhibits those were: Collections, Technology, Photography, including Nature and Human Study, Floral/Vegetable Creations, Handwriting and Computer Designs and Creative Flair, such as Pet Rock Creations, Mosaic, Decorated Plastic Bottle, Fabric Creations and more. Particularly likeable were the ideas that had been entered for the 101 Uses for Gumboots. There was also a Cooking Section which included Healthy Lunch Box Packing and the senior students created some superbly effective health posters. The entries were definitely up in numbers on last year, which was very pleasing. Ideas were bountiful. But not only all kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ages were catered for â&#x20AC;&#x201C; RVAS was also on the lookout for Grandadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pikelets, Staff Cup Cakes, Granâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Scones and Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Pie. The pre-schoolers could get creative by dressing their favourite teddy, contributing to the Art Work or Clay Model Sections. Wednesday all the family was found outdoors. From 9 am until 3 pm, one could see animals galore â&#x20AC;&#x201C; calfs, sheep, dogs, chooks, birds, and horses, all on the play field of the school. Many farming parents in the community took the opportunity to volunteer as judges as well as

showing off some of the skills they had already taught their children in looking after the animals on their farms. Outdoor/Pet Exhibits included highly interesting sections, such as Calf â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ringcraft, Care and Attention, Light Breed Dairy, Heavy Breed Dairy, Crossbreed Dairy and Best Beef or Bull. There was a Lamb Section in which the best lamb for export, the best wool lamb, the lamb with the best coloured wool for spinning, the best ewe lamb, best pet lamb were judged. The Goat Section offered Ring Craft, Best Pet Goat and Care and Attention. The Poulty Section was open for hens, caged birds, geese, ducks and chickens. The Dog Section also boasted plenty of entries and the children had to walk an obstacle and agility course with their dogs, judged by Craig Conden (RVAS Technology Teacher), Lawry Shaw (Years 7 and 8 and relieving RVAS Teacher) and world famous Mr. Ken White, the dog whistler, who came in to present his Dog and Duck Show. The kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; general comment to this was â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an awesome show!â&#x20AC;? Ken White lives locally and so volunteered to bring a bit of suspense into the day with his extraordinarily well trained dog and very â&#x20AC;&#x153;pigheadedâ&#x20AC;? but eventually obedient ducks! In the Horse Section the best rider, the best presented best care and attention, woolliest horse/pony, best trotting, best mannered, best walking as well as those with courage to do the obstacle course were rewarded with certificates and cups. Meanwhile the little ones could show off their pet lambs in the Fastest Lamb Drinker contest, where the pet lambs had to finish a bottle of 375mls milk as fast as they were hungry and thirsty! One of the yearly highlights of this day was of course the Young Farmers Contest. Youth had to master some exciting challenges: 1. change on ATV and push around course, 2. light a campfire, 3. Canyon Walk, 4. Blind Dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bluff, 5. Pig Attack, 6. Horse Event. This year Billy Humm (14), Kieran Wills (14) and Jack Mackel (14) won the trophy. The prizegiving in the library was very well received but had to be rushed a little as due to the massive amount of events that had taken place, time had run out fast!

CRAFTY LADIES: Showing off examples of their wares are Margaret Simonsen, Lesley Knight, Katie McDonald, Viv Chapman and Denise Stephens (back), and (front) Tahlia North, Jenny Elvy, Toni Adams and Nicky Porter will be selling their handywork at the up and coming November Craft Fair. There will be nearly 20 different stalls during the two day Fair.

Groups dedicated to pets By Celeste Lodewyk. Anyone can have a pet, whether that pet is bought, received as a gift, rescued or adopted, but it takes a responsible person or family to be a good pet owner. A responsible pet owner not only loves and cares for their pet, but they also provide a happy home, correct nutrition and necessary training to encourage good behaviour. For most, a pet is a privilege

and a lifetime responsibility. But unfortunately for others the novelty of owning a pet soon wears off. This is a situation well known to local organizations such as SPCA Marlborough and Animal Control Maataa Waka Ki Te Tau Ihu Trust, who are dedicated to the protection and well being of our pets. The two organizations share a collaborative working

relationship, strengthened by the volunteer work done with SPCA by Animal Control staff, says Candice Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, team leader for Animal Control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two of our staff recently gained their certificates in animal welfare investigation which they will be using in their volunteer services with the SPCA, this is very important work for us,â&#x20AC;? she says.

November 11 is SPCA Awareness Day and Maataa Waka Ki Te Tau Ihu Trust is encouraging the community to show its support for this vital service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maataa Waka Ki Te Tau Ihu Trust supports SPCA and we hope the community will to. They provide a much needed service and we are proud to be so strongly affiliated with them,â&#x20AC;? she says.

Fireworks and Halloween safety tips for dog owners These two annual events are great fun for people but the loud noises and unexpected visitors to your home can be traumatic for dogs. Fireworks, excited voices and visual stimulation can create confusion and fear. To avoid this, responsible pet owners must ensure the safety and comfort of our four legged friends. - If you go to an event, never leave your dog in the car. A partially opened window does not supply sufficient fresh air and creates an opportunity for your dog to be stolen.

- Always keep proper identification tags securely fastened to your dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collar in case it gets out. - Create a comfortable, quiet area for your dog inside to protect it from bursts of bright light and loud bangs. - Keep candy away from your dog as they (including chocolate) are toxic to dogs. - If you take your dog trick or treating, be alert at all times. Do not let your dog approach the door of a house and stay clear of people in costume to avoid defensive behaviour. For more safety tips visit www.barkbusters.co.nz

Delicious Sasa

-/. &2)AM PM 3!4AM PM 1UEEN3TREET 0HONE

It has been the support of the community which has seen Sasa thrive on Queen Street in Blenheim. Owner Siok-Keng Lim purchased the Asian food business in December 2009 and has continued to offer quality gourmet food at low prices everyone can afford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of repeat customers who enjoy our $6 lunchboxes, fresh sushi and great range of menu dishes,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And to be able to keep offering this service I have not increased the GST on any of Sasaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prices - a token of my gratitude to the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support.â&#x20AC;? Made fresh each day, Siok prepares her sushi from fresh ingredients including vegetarian, chicken and seafood. Also on the lunch menu is a delicious

range of curries, rice and noodle dishes demonstrating the vast flavors of Asia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have incorporatedw many different traditional dishes from Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of Sasaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dishes in particular the Bak-Ku-The is very popular, a delicious Chinese herb soup with spare ribs,â&#x20AC;? she says. On the sweeter side of the menu, the deep fried ice-cream is proving a real treat, as well as Sasaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s range of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bubble teasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; - a healthy alternative to milk shakes. With Summer just around the corner, Siok plans to extend business hours and re-open Sasaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upstairs dining area. But for now customers can enjoy the indoor and outdoor dining areas, gourmet food and personal customer service.

Kiwifruit improves digestion Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confirmed - Kiwifruit can break down proteins for better absorption within the digestive process. So says new research conducted in New Zealand. Kiwifruit has long been claimed to assist in digestion. And is well known to have a tenderising effect on meat. This is due to the activity of a naturally occurring enzyme, Actinidin, that is present only in green kiwifruit.

Coping with allergies Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the time of year when flowers are blooming and pollen release is at its peak. Not good news for people who suffer from airborne allergies. Hay fever, or otherwise known as allergic rhinitis, is usually triggered by wind-borne pollen from trees, grass and weeds. The allergen comes into contact with the sensitive, moist lining in your nose and sinuses and sets off an allergic response. Hay fever that persists year-round is usually caused by dust mites, pets or mould. Symptoms involve a recurrent runny or stuffy, itchy nose and frequent sneezing. Hay fever also affects eyes, sinuses, throat and ears. Mild symptoms can be treated with over the counter medication, such as nasal sprays, eye drops. In severe cases consult your doctor and allergy testing will be considered along with treatment from a specialist. Health tips to avoid hay fever: * Garlic and horseradish supplements have a gentle but potent effect on pollen sensitivities. * Eating fresh spring fruits and vegetables to boost your immune protecting vitamin C levels. * Use herbal teas with ginger and lemon to soothe runny

The Boys win two in a row Last Thursday night week 2 of Marlborough Volleyballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s FairWeathersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Senior Summer League got underway at Stadium 2000. MBC team The Boys recorded their first points with a win over Flamin Mongrels. Both teams started well with The Boys just edging ahead by two points to take the early set 25-23. Flamin Mongrels got the better of them in the middle set taking the equalizer 21-25. All tied-up in a very even encounter the sides looked for an edge. The pickings were slim but the experience of a little more structure to their game helped The Boys gain the set 25-21 and the win by 2 sets 1. Next game up last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappointment was swept away as

Wayward Spikers took their second win of the season (one better than their entire effort in Term 3) against a worthy foe in Fiafia. First set was Waywardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25-23, only to strike a pretty determined set by their opponents, Fiafia who got ahead and held the lead taking the set 21-25. They however couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t maintain the pressure and their score was reversed in the deciding set. Won by Wayward Spikers 25-21 and the game 2 sets 1. The effort by the entire team deservedly won them The Fairweathersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Next up was Fairweathersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Magnum who took the court for practice only as they recorded maximum points regardless of the win as No Strings had to default. The gifted points give Magnum a

2 from 2 early lead in the competition. Just 4 teams contest B grade this season and first up Sixes and Sevens had a bad day at the office. They looked fantastic in the early set going out to a huge lead and totally annihilated Just Woodbourne with a 7-25 score only to lose their huge advantage missing out on the next two sets, 25-22 and 25-19. The win for Woodbourne equals their wins for the entire winter season so maybe will augur well for this summer season. The other game played between Tree Fellas and MBC saw a pretty comprehensive display of scoring volleyball as MBC couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find enough in their arsenal to hold out a high scoring crew from Tree Fellas. Set scores 25-13, 25-15 and 25-16.

Top: Robert Flood finishes in second place in Saloons Class. Above: Demolition Derby drivers thrilled the crowd ending the opening night for Eastern States Speedway.

Speedway kicks off to large crowd numbers By Celeste Lodewyk Speedway season really did kick off with a hiss and a bang on Saturday night as Eastern States opened its gates for the start of an exciting season. Club president Tim Alexander was pleased with the event, calling it a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;resounding successâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The crowd was bigger than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening night with plenty of race fans coming along to show their support, and the number of demolition derby entries was also slightly higher this year which was great to see. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall the crowd behaviour was good. We have a strict no-alcohol policy which was also respected by

most - everyone seemed to have a good time,â&#x20AC;? he says. First to kick up the clay was the derby street race won by Brady Norton. This was then followed by 12 rounds of action packed racing as production, stock cars, saloons and street stock drivers competed for the BNT and Pete Dickson Memorial trophies. Once racing had ended it was time for demolition derby drivers to tear up the track and compete for the title of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;last man standingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. After avoiding destruction and eliminating his competition, Blenheimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gavin Marshall won the derby in his Toyota Cressida Wagon.

Pigeon Race Results The pigeons were released at Oamaru on Saturday at 7:00am. The weather was slightly overcast, and the birds raced at a fairly average speed.

Race Results: In the stock car class, 1st was 777e Tim Alexander, 2nd 771 Scott Alexander and 3rd 55e Brent Goulding. For saloons, 1st was 82e Daniel Flood, 2nd 791e Robert Flood and 3rd 5e Mark Pengally. Streetstocks saw in 1st place Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 78n Daniel Kitto and Blenheim drivers 8e Ray Foot in 2nd and 11e Cody McCarrison in 3rd. In 1st place for productions was 15e Karl Stevenson followed by Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 69n Steve Russ in 2nd and 7e Dave Allen in 3rd.

Results: 1st J. Webb, 2nd Morrins Hollow, 3rd Shirley Morrison, 4th C. Kirkwood, 5th D. Dredge, 6th J. and G. Peart, 7th S. Kirkwood, 8th A. Jones Triple Crown Results: 1st Morrins Hollow, 2nd Shirley Morrison, 3rd J. Webb.
