Life begins at 40

Meet Tama Oha, a month-old Taranaki chick who has just become the 40th kiwi released on Sanctuary Mountain – Maungatautari as part of the Kiwis for Kiwi programme. Tama Oha, in the arms of Helen McCormick from the National Kiwi Hatchery, was hatched at the National Kiwi Hatchery in Rotorua and named by Taranaki iwi Ngāti Tama. Under the Kiwis for Kiwi programme Tama Oha is one of 500 Western Brown kiwi chicks released on Maungatautari over a five-year period. The programme began last year. The Cambridge News sent reporter Sophie Iremonger to Sanctuary Mountain to report on the latest release. See her story on page 5.

Ring the bell I am a senior citizen who enjoys walking her dog along the streets and tracks in our beautiful town. I’ve also been a cyclist, although not in this country. During my cycling days my fellow riders and I warned walkers of our approach from behind by ringing our bells. Here, I have been surprised and dismayed that few cyclists follow this custom. In the two years I’ve been living in Cambridge I have never heard a bicycle bell. At best I get an ‘Excuse me’ seconds before a cyclist whizzes past. This is most disconcerting and potentially very dangerous, especially for an elderly walker. It may be that cyclists are too polite to sound a bell, mistakenly thinking this might be construed as rude or arrogant. It most definitely is not for this walker. By sounding a bell a cyclist does not have to slow down as much, as the person ahead has been warned. The walker will never be forced to move aside instantly and dangerously but will do so with plenty of time. A win/win situation. Ruth Pidwell

I hope everyone has survived the school holidays and families have enjoyed some quality time together. First of all, a big thank you this week – we are starting to see more crime reporting coming through, which has already enabled us to hold to a few people to account over dishonesty matters. An arrest gives us a chance to try to identify the underlying issues behind a person’s offending and put them in touch with necessary support. Hopefully the process will also make them think twice about committing further crime. I believe a connected community is key in preventing and deterring crime. We’ve had a great example of this in the last couple of weeks. Eagle-eyed accommodation hosts noticed some suspicious activity from newly arrived guests. They remained observant and alerted Police to the individuals’ presence and conduct. Separately, one of our retail businesses reported a shoplifting incident and provided clear CCTV footage. Through both contacts, a link was identified. Police were able to locate important evidence in relation to two offences committed. A female was subsequently arrested and charged with these, and other offences, in Auckland. If either contact had not occurred, it is likely the offender

If New Zealand history is going to be taught how about they start with climate history and might I suggest that Micheal Cole do a little research as well. video/6piJY0BKwUoR/ would be an excellent place to start, another would be The Alexander Turnbull library, where it tells us that temperature stability in New Zealand is not just a recent phenomenon, The Alexander Turnbull library has the original of a research report by the Dominion Meteorologist in 1868 which finds the New Zealand average temperature over the preceding eight years to be 13.1°C – slightly higher than today. This historic view further aligns with De Freitas et al (2014)[1] which is the only relevant science that appears in the international peer-reviewed literature. That study shows that the average 7SS temperature

trend has been only 0.28°C ± 0.3°C since 2009. As the error bars exceed the trend, the range of temperature changes include zero – ie there has been no detectable warming in this country for over a hundred years. So, New Zealand hasn’t yet experienced even the slightest twinge of “climate change” (as defined by the UN), despite the noisy alarm fostered by groups such as the Green Party, So why is the Government spending millions of dollars in research grants to study the effect of alleged New Zealand warming?

Drugs have a significant and negative, health and social impact. You can help us disrupt the flow. Signs of a drug house are high volumes of people making short duration visits, the flow of which may vary on a cyclical basis, visitors may sit in their car for a period of time after having left the house, or one person may remain in the car while another goes inside. You may see people carrying items of value (electronics, cellphones, bikes etc) into the house and there may appear to be a person on lookout hanging around outside. Many drug houses have been shut down through information provided by the public. Contact Police to report suspicious activity or to provide information about drug dealing.

One more day to have your say By Sophie Iremonger

It’s now down to hours. Polls for the 2019 local body elections close across the country tomorrow – and voters who still want to have their say will have to use their feet to meet the noon deadline. Waipa District Council is opening its doors in Cambridge and Te Awamutu tomorrow, providing the opportunity to both enrol and vote. Council’s General Manager for Strategy and Community Services, Debbie Lascelles hopes those who haven’t already voted will turn out and have their say. “I think a lot of people don’t realise how important local government is, and how much it affects their daily life,” she said. “We (council) spend a lot of

money, and it’s those councillors who set our budget for the next 10 years – that determines what facilities and big projects get funded. … all the stuff that make a community a great place to live are predominantly driven by a local government.” Voter turnout in Waipa is down 15 percent compared to this time in the 2016 election. Lascelles said the fact that the mayor Jim Mylchreest stands unopposed could play a big part in voter interest this year. “I think some people don’t actually understand the breadth and depth of what council does, and it could also be that people are a little bit cynical about politics and politicians in general,” she said. Nationally only 43 per cent of eligible voters cast a vote in the 2016 election. Returns in local government elections, which still

rely on postal voting, have been declining nationwide since the 1980s. Forecasters say this year could see the lowest nationwide turnout in local body elections. But people should care, and they should vote, Lascelles said, because it touches on the things that make their lives good. “It’s not just rubbish collections, it’s your community facilities, parks, pools, library, water, even how we set the speed for local roads. It’s all the stuff that make a community a great place to live.” “Voter turnout is low pretty much almost everywhere, and I think the challenge for local government is to build a better understanding in its community of what we do.” She applauded community groups like Grey Power for organising candidate meetings –

given that council staff are limited in their involvement with the local elections. But Waipa District Council, in keeping with the rules of local government elections, had been involved with a range of community engagement activities, from promotional posters and Facebook campaigns to providing extensive information on council candidates and how residents can vote. Online voting could make a difference in future, she said, if applied properly. “If it gets more people to vote I’d be in favour of it, but you’d have to have a combination of (voting) options.” She said the lack of public turnout at the candidates meetings didn’t exactly bode well for the total voter turnout, but, “we can always hope”.

Debbie Lascelles said council offices in Cambridge and Te Awamutu would be open tomorrow for last minute voters.

$1 million bonus revealed

A short-term borrowing strategy implemented over the past three years by Waipa District Council will have earned more than $1 million additional cash by early 2020. Since 2016, Council has taken advantage of a favourable difference in borrowing and investment interest rates. The low-risk borrowing has been done through the Local Government Funding Agency (LGFA). The LGFA is owned by 30 New Zealand councils plus the Crown and allows councils to access funds at low interest rates. In its latest arrangement, Council borrowed and invested $35 million at fixed rates of interest for a period of between three and six months. The money has been invested with three banks – BNZ, ASB and ANZ – in line with Council’s investment policy. When each investment expires, the $35m will be returned firstly to the Council, then to the LGFA in full. But the excess interest earned from the investment ($132,759) after payment of interest on the borrowing, will go back to the Council to benefit Waipa district ratepayers. It will be reflected in the 2019/2020 annual accounts. Chief financial officer Ken Morris said Waipa District Council has entered into several similar financial arrangements over the past three years, securing more than $900,000 in additional interest revenue. “When this latest series of investments mature, the total excess interest earned on behalf of ratepayers from these arrangements will exceed $1 million,” he said. “That is a substantial amount of money and we are only really able to do this because Waipā has very strong financial management in place and a robust balance sheet. The risk on the investments is negligible but the rewards in terms of additional cash are substantial and have secured $1 million that ratepayers don’t have to fund.” • See Council numbers add up, Page 7

More Kiwi for Maungatautari By Sophie Iremonger

Maungatautari’s newest resident was welcomed into Sanctuary Mountain’s main enclosure on Friday last week with the arrival of Tama Oha, a month-old kiwi chick found in the wild in Taranaki and hatched at the National Kiwi Hatchery in Rotorua. Named by Taranaki iwi Ngāti Tama, Tama Oha is the 40th kiwi to be released on Maungatautari as part of the Kiwis for Kiwi programme, which will see up to 500 Western Brown kiwi chicks released on Maungatautari over a five-year period, beginning last year. As part of an agreement with centres around North Island, once Maungatautari is at-capacity with kiwi numbers, new chicks will be transferred to wildlife centres to help grow their natural numbers.

“This will basically save the kiwi population,” said Sanctuary Mountain’s kiwi ranger Craig Montgomerie. “These kiwis will live here forever, breed, and their progeny will leave to go to other forests around the north western area. “It’s creating a really diverse genetic pool, collecting genetics from the entire western region, and creating a nice healthy population to start new populations.” Montgomerie confirmed the goal was to release 90 kiwi on Maungatautari over the October – May season, having released 38 over the 2018/19 season. “Between now and May we’re aiming for 90. The peak is probably about January and February when it ramps up even more. But even next month, every Friday in November, I’ll be releasing kiwi – some days up to five.” Up to five eggs are collected from nests in

the wild and hatched at three centres around the North Island. Left on their own after hatching, less than five percent of kiwi chicks in the wild survive to adulthood. Most are killed by predators, but the adults can fend for themselves. Tama Oha, whose sex will be determined after a DNA test, was released right at the top of the main enclosure on Maungatautari with perfect conditions for a young kiwi to forage. At about three years of age he or she will most likely find a mate and begin growing kiwi numbers on the maunga. “He’s pretty special, he’s grown really well,” said Helen McCormick from the National Kiwi Hatchery, who released Tama Helen McCormick, right, introduces Tama Oha to Sanctuary Mountain trustees before the chick was released.

“He hatched pretty big, at 399 grams, the national average is about 330g. “Previously our model has been to hatch them at our centre, raise them to a kilo in weight, and release them back into the wild. This is different in that the strategy is to repopulate the mountain, then take new kiwi back to other areas in future.” After being officially welcomed by representatives from Ngati Koroki Kahukura (also representing Raukawa, Ngati Hauaa and Waikato Tainui iwis) Tama Oha was carried 1.5km into the mountain enclosure and released into his new home. Over the next seven months, 89 chicks from around the western region are expected to do the same.

Council numbers add up Waipa District Council has ended the financial year with an operating surplus of $34 million and an AA- credit rating. Chief financial officer Ken Morris said growth continued to have a huge impact on Council activities, driving a “step change” in the annual capital works programme. “Waipā had a 1.9 per cent increase in population, growth in business units of 1.4 per cent and economic growth of 4.7 per cent,” Morris said. “In response we delivered $55.1 million of capital works and services, mainly in core infrastructure like water, wastewater, stormwater and roads. But there is no doubt the capital programme was challenging and capital projects will continue to be testing in the coming year given the very tight contracting market.” Market conditions forced a delay in some projects, and Waipā ended the year with $15 million in external debt, $34 million less than budget. Over the next decade debt levels are forecast to rise steadily as investment into core infrastructure continues

along with the development of community facilities like Te Ara Wai in Te Awamutu, community playgrounds and the Cambridge pool. Rates continued to form less than 50 per cent of Council’s total revenue, well within Waipā’s self-imposed limit of 65 per cent. “That means we have diverse income streams and are not wholly reliant on ratepayers to meet the costs of running the district which is good,” Morris said. “We will also continue to uplift contributions from developers to ensure they pay their fair share of growthrelated costs.” In June, international credit agency Fitch assigned the Council a AA- credit rating, endorsing Waipā’s financial strength, stability and financial management. The only New Zealand council to have a higher Fitch rating is Invercargill City Council. The rating means Waipā will receive a 15 basis point (0.15 per cent) discount on any new long-term borrowings from the Local Government Funding Agency. This will save ratepayers tens of thousands

of dollars in interest costs over coming years. The Annual Report showed Council ended the year with more than $1.7 billion in assets and total liabilities of $38.3 million. There was a cash surplus of $970,000 after allowing for a small number of carry forward and other items. The cash surplus provides a buffer for unanticipated items in the 2019-2020 year. It can also be used to impact on rates in the 2020-2021 year which is the next time the Council will set its rates. Council’s adopted 20182019 Annual Report is available online at www. A small number of printed copies will be available by the end of this week.

Trees for Survival sparks student learning By Sophie Iremonger

Karapiro School students have been hands-on at a nearby farm learning about biodiversity, riparian planting and how to keep waterways clean as part of the Trees for Survival programme. The environmental education initiative as part of the Enviroschools programme teaches children how to restore natural habitats through native tree planting, helping landowners to revegetate erosion-prone land, improve stream quality and increase biodiversity. Students worked on the Blunt family farm on Karapiro Road and some of the Year 4, 5 and 6 students will revisit the area over the next few years to continue planting and see how their work has helped change the landscape for the better. “The kids can actually see that they’re making a difference,” said Alex Daniel, an Enviroschools facilitator from Waikato Regional Council who worked with the Karapiro School students on the Blunt family farm recently. She said 10 schools in Waipa, including five in Cambridge, were taking part in the programme. “The aim is to get riparian planting and look after waterways, and we do a stream study at the same time to understand the invertebrates and the different characteristics of a stream,” she said. “At the end we ask, what can we do to make it better? And usually the answer is to plant trees to stop run off and erosion. It’s all about working with community farms, learning about the science behind it and keeping the water clean.” “This term we’ve been learning all about our environment and looking after our environment,” said Karapiro’s environmental teacher Harriet Embling. “And it’s great that a lot of this (tree planting) work is along the

main road, so they’ll be able to see them and watch them grow.” The students grew the trees themselves in the school’s ‘Trees for Survival’ nursery. Principal Tina-Maree Thatcher said the students had enjoyed following the trees through the process of seedlings to their new home on the farm, and the school was grateful to the Blunt family for their involvement. “Our students were able to work with a wide variety of different species of plants and learned about what plants and trees need over their life cycle to survive. A key aspect of this learning is respect for the natural environment and participation towards building a sustainable community,” said Thatcher. The students themselves said the best part of all was playing in the mud – as in planting trees, and exploring the ‘creepy-crawlies’ of the environment.

Thanks a billion, pensioners

By Viv Posselt

“Don’t let anyone tell you that you are a burden to New Zealand. If you went on strike tomorrow, this country would fall to its knees.” That was the message delivered by Seniors Minister Tracey Martin to a packed Cambridge Grey Power meeting last week. The gathering at the Taylor St Health and Community Centre attracted Grey Power members, some local body election candidates and members of the public. Many had come to hear Ms Martin speak on upgrades to the SuperGold Card, which she announced a day earlier in conjunction with Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters. The new Better Later Life strategy – He Oranga Kaumātua 2019-2034 – was launched earlier this year to replace the Positive Ageing Strategy which ran from 2001-2010. “No-one did anything about the seniors’ community after 2010. I decided we didn’t want to revamp it, so asked New

Zealanders what they wanted. The strongest thing to come through was that there was no such thing as retirement. Turning 65 means transitioning from paid work to unpaid work, from full-time to part time work, from a wage economy to superannuation.” Referring to the current lobbying by broadcaster Mark Sainsbury for the appointment of an aged-care commissioner —and the pushback by TOP leader Geoff Simmons—she said the topic had raised talk of a universal basic income for all New Zealanders. “They would need to lower superannuation across the board and transfer it to the younger generation if the country was to be able to afford that. The interesting thing is that they haven’t had a conversation about exactly how much seniors contribute to New Zealand. “They don’t mention the $50 billion your spending will put back into the economy by 2036, the $25 billion you do in terms of voluntary work, or the $13 billion you will pay in taxes by 2036,” she said. “You only hear one side of the

Trash to treasure sale returns By Sophie Iremonger

The Great DIY Sale is returning to Hautapu on October 20 giving residents a chance to divert would-be rubbish from landfill and repurpose building materials in their own DIY and construction projects. The ‘brain child’ of Rob May Builders director Jono McCullough, the event started last year as a way to stop useful DIY products from going to landfill, with trades people donating excess or unused materials to be sold at a discount price to the public. The event saw $11,000 raised for Cambridge East Primary School, and over 15 tonnes of materials avoiding landfill.

“After last year we thought, if that’s what managed to get collected in the space of one term, imagine what we could collect if we actually had storage, so we’ve been collecting and storing things in a shipping container,” explained Paula Harvey, a Cambridge East School staffer and event organiser. This year’s sale items include a large bath tub and other plumbing gear donated by Plumbing World Te Awamutu, plants from Amber Garden Centre, as well as timber, insulation, tiles, flooring, paint and more. Waipa District Council will help with traffic management, and Te Miro School will provide food and coffee from 8am, before doors open at 9am.

conversation from politicians when it comes to seniors. “I sit on the Future of Work Standing Committee [a government-initiated tripartite forum established in mid2018]. By 2036, there will be one million New Zealanders aged 65 and over; the reality is, we cannot have one million New Zealanders drop out of the workforce, taking all that knowledge, expertise and skills with them. We need to make sure our seniors remain connected to the workplace.” She said today’s seniors were fitter, more active and more ‘connected’ than the generations before. “I am signing at least 20 cards a month for those turning 100. Japan has 80,000 citizens over the age of 100, so we need to keep our seniors connected to the workplace, whether it is paid work or voluntary. And we need to make sure businesses understand that. “So, don’t let anyone tell you that you’re a burden to the country … because you’re not.” See Page 13 - Gold card changes explained and a new column: The Age of Reason.

The issues as your candidates see them…

Since nominations opened, we have quizzed your local body election candidates on a variety of issues. Some have responded to all questions; some have elected not to answer any. Polls close tomorrow and to have a say now voters must hand their forms to their council in person, as we have explained today on Page 3. We put two final questions to candidates – 1: why should people vote for you and 2: which of your rivals would you vote for? Here’s what they said: WAIPA DISTRICT COUNCIL Cambridge Ward Candidates: Les Bennett, Philip Coles, Poto Davies, Dennis Finn, Ron Geck, Roger Gordon, Steve Grounds, Greg Keyte, Mike Pettit, Don Sanders, Liz Stolwyk, Grahame Webber.

Being a fifth-generation resident gives me the passion and desire to deliver for future generations. Mike Pettit and I have achieved a lot in the nine years together on the Community Board; he is a positive and competent leader.

Poto Davies I have five years’ history at the council table as a representative for iwi and have developed sound relationships with Mayor Jim, Councillors and staff. I understand council process and why it is critical that community have input. As a hearings commissioner I bring skills of listening and making informed ‘good sense’ decisions. I believe genuine, open honest discussion and transparency are key to building enduring relationships that result in outcomes that are beneficial for all parties. This is the stuff I really enjoy. I will respectfully speak my mind and challenge perceptions and concepts if they don’t feel right or don’t stack up against science or data. My networks are strong across the Waikato region as it is necessary to always be aware of where our Waipa community fits in with the whole region. Council needs diversity and fresh perspective at the table. The answer to question two is Liz Stolwyk. Roger Gordon I am passionate about Cambridge. As past CEO of Destination Cambridge I have commitment to this great town of Cambridge. My three years on the CCB have given me a strong foundation to take the next step. I know the people, the processes/systems,

and the issues, so am well prepared. As the CCB we advocated for Cambridge to WDC on proposed by-laws, annual and long term plans, and community concerns. As an Institute of Directors member, I have formal training in governance. My extensive business background has given me strong analytical research skills to inform any decision I make. During my campaign, I have knocked on 3000+ doors and have met and listened to many of your concerns. On question two, it is hard to suggest only one. On the CCB, I worked closely with Mike Pettit and Philip Coles and have every respect for their ability and commitment to be effective councillors. Steve Grounds I would bring to the council table a business acumen and sound knowledge and understanding of local government. At the end of the day, Council is a business that makes decisions that affect all ratepayers, now and into the future and it needs to adopt sound governance practices and a business-like approach. Secondly, because I love Cambridge, I’m here to stay. I’m strongly committed to its future growth while ensuring that we preserve its special character. Without a doubt, Grahame Webber has done a great job, as both a councillor and more recently as Deputy Mayor and absolutely deserves to be re-elected.


    Elections

Greg Keyte I believe that I am the right person to vote for because I bring a fresh vision for all people of Waipā, a holistic strategic focus, a focus on the social infrastructures that we need for growth. Not just the bricks and mortar. A strong view on transparency of decision making. There needs to be regular communication on what was promised and what is being delivered. The news might not always be good, but it should not be hidden. Of my rival candidates I would strongly recommend a vote for Poto Davies. Poto has great common sense, significant relationships with the community including property developers, the council and the iwi. These relationships will improve the information flow that is so important when understanding the impact of the decisions we will need to make going forward. Don Sanders I am the right person because I am an average person who wants what we all want. For rates to be reasonable, water to be affordable, and traffic and parking to be a problem they have in other towns. I don’t run a business that receives Council funding, and like you - I actually live here. I could support any of the candidates that actually live in Cambridge. For those that do not, I would question why they don’t run in their own wards. Liz Stolwyk Hardworking, hardworking and hardworking. Great multi-tasker with a huge compassion for local issues and people. Honest, approachable and positive.



The issues as your candidates see them…

Cambridge will have at least three new councillors, ensure you have diversity, gender balance and some continuation from the last council. There are a number of good quality candidates this election but from November 1, Cambridge Councillors must be able to work together, singling people out will compromise this. You have to be able to work as a team to make good decisions and get the best outcome for the community you serve. COMMUNITY BOARDS Cambridge Subdivision Candidates: Elise Badger, Les Bennett, Philip Coles, Jo Davies-Colley, Jim Goddin, Roger Gordon, Alana MacKay, Sue Milner, Don Sanders. We received six responses from nine candidates, including those running for the District council.

Elise Badger Cambridge is a town full of people committed to the flourishing of this community, this is seen in our local organisations, businesses and education centres. It is also demonstrated in the host of passionate individuals who have put their hands up to be part of local council. I don’t see these individuals as rivals, but a crew of fellow citizens who love this place and want to be part of shepherding its growth into the future. I know I’ll do an excellent job on the community board; I’ll advocate well, I’ll do the mahi required to petition on

the community’s behalf to our council. But I am also certain that many of my fellow candidates for the Cambridge community board will also do an excellent job. I have faith and confidence in the future of Cambridge, and I am certain I will be part of shaping that in some capacity Alana MacKay I am the right person for the Cambridge Community Board because I really care about Cambridge and our people. I have a history of community involvement, experience in local business, a strong work ethic and will put in a lot of effort to be a great advocate and representative of our town. Philip Coles and Roger Gordon have served on the Community Board for several years and do a lot for our community, they are also running for Council. Jim Goddin is hardworking and very active in our community. Jo Davies-Colley and Elise Badger would bring new ideas and freshness. Sue Milner has served Cambridge for many years as a Councillor and sat on the Community Board. With many of the existing members of the Community Board moving on I think that Sue’s knowledge and experience would be invaluable. So, she would be my pick. Sue Milner Having sat on Council and the Community Board, I have the experience to continue the good work done by the Board as well as being part of planning and enabling future initiatives for our community. I am community focussed, always willing to take part in community events and

projects. Looking to the future, let’s achieve a new library, new museum, more playgrounds and more safe cycling and walking paths. Let’s promote our CBDs in Cambridge and Leamington. We have a great community and a great place to live, work and play. Question two is a tough one. I want to suggest you vote for the other three women standing for the Board. Experience has shown that the women who have served as Board members have all been great workers for the community and have taken the lead in many projects and events. However, I will say Alana MacKay. She has considerable experience in business and events and will be an asset to the board, as will Jo and Elise. Jo Davies-Colley This town has so much going for it and I want to make sure that it continues to improve and flourish for us all. I often think about how I want Cambridge to be when I am at the age of retirement and this has made me want to participate in a more active way in the decision making of this awesome town. My background in the health sector has made me someone who understands that people want to be heard and have their concerns listened to and actioned. I hope to serve the community with energy and enthusiasm and a shared love for our Cambridge. Elise Badger is a dynamic and passionate candidate, she has a heart for people and some great ideas for this town. Alana Mackay has extensive experience in the business sector and is a friendly and engaging person, she would also be an ideal board member. WAIPA DISTRICT COUNCIL Te Awamutu Ward Lou Brown, Michael Emery, Bernhard Fynn, Marcus Gower, Andrew Brown, Bill Izard, Hazel Barnes, James Parlane, Dennis

    Elections

Pennefather, Craig Sanders, Cassidy Temese, Bernard Westerbaan, John Wood. We received six responses from 13 candidates. Lou Brown I believe that with the current turbulent times Waipa District Council needs an experienced, practical and commonsense approach to problem solving and governance which I hope to be able to provide. My answer to question two is Andrew Brown, a current serving councillor who chairs the Finance Committee. Andrew is a Chartered Accountant and a Te Awamutu businessman who would be very valuable with continuity and experience for the next council term. Michael Emery A strong council must be armed with more than good intentions. Making the right decisions about the services you receive and the amount you pay for them requires genuine skill. I have a solid education in science, represented large organisations in complex matters, and have experience in project management that will ensure your rates are not wasted on schemes with hidden costs or questionable benefits. Technology will be a key enabler for growth. I have taught information technology at university, been involved in programming research, and have worked extensively in Continued page 12

The issues as your candidates see them… the technology industry. I can ensure that council always invests wisely in technology. My strong sense of community is backed up by a history of military service, volunteer work, and support to youth development programs. Myself and Cassidy Temese are the only two Māori standing for the Te Awamutu ward. We need more Māori in council, so please support us.

Bill Izard I’ve been in business most of my life and do a lot of volunteering in Te Awamutu. Organising things like Christmas parades, car shows, carnivals and also volunteering for Age Concern looking after older people which is a growing portion of the population as we move forward. I’m interested in local politics and council, making sure that we look after the people in the community and being available to everyone. I’m also setting up a new group called Te Awamutu Action so it’ll be weekly meetings for people to come along with positive ideas for the community so we can feedback to the council. I honestly think Marcus Gower is a would make a great person to be re-elected on the community as he’s only 42 years old and has a lot of energy and ideas for the bring forward James Parlane I have put more on the council agenda for discussion than any of the standing council and I am the best qualified person with the best attitude and the best mix of skills and experience to represent people. This is not about how many grand children a person has, that is an example of stupidity. I am the only candidate who can show that by living a frugal lifestyle, I can save the planet and solve all the global warming and climate change issues you want solved. My spending on jet fuel last year was zero. Two question two, certainly none of the currently elected candidates. None of them have done anything to make the Waipa Council more efficient and none have done anything to save ratepayers’ money. Wasting money on a museum in France was an abuse of their oath of office. Of the other hopefuls, none have the right mix of talents to be able to stand up to a regime of wastefulness. Dennis Pennefather I am the right person to be elected. For several decades I have promoted issues of social equity through letters to newspaper editors...I have been labelled a ‘socialist’, yet I do not adhere to any political position... I respond to issues. I am proud that the Waikato Times newspaper, published a half -page article on me, identifying me as ‘a fair-minded man who writes letters and dares to speak out’. I am equipped for the

1 Lower Alpha Street, Cambridge

    Elections role by 25 years as a policeman, giving me a wide knowledge of humanity, science, medicine, and societies. On question two, candidates are talking about ‘effectively’ or ‘sensibly’ spending ratepayers’ money, yet leaving the door open for pet projects being minority driven, thus extending the ‘empire’...rather than keeping to the long term plan and keep rates rises down, until we know what a government which has ‘dropped the ball’ on actually funding social housing and climate change will require from ratepayers to fill funding shortfalls. I say, Bill Izard. Bernard Westerbaan Being a people’s person with tenacity to follow up on ratepayers’ queries is one of my strengths. Being honest, promoting transparency, feedback and using common sense is paramount. I am able to speed read large reports, am number minded, financially prudent and approachable. Ensuring resources are available before future growth result in lower borrowing. If large borrowing happens but growth stagnates rates increases are inevitable. I am Community minded: Commsafe patrols, BOT TA Intermediate, Treasurer of local Grey Power, Menzshed and previous six years TA Community Board. Long term resident in the Te Awamutu area, married, five children and eight grandchildren. On question two, my values are integrity, honesty, being approachable and ratepayer focused. Therefore, as I’m standing as an independent candidate it would be wrong for me to answer this question. TE AWAMUTU COMMUNITY BOARD (Kakepuku) Candidates: Viki-Lee Springer, Kane Titchener. We received one response from the two candidates. Kane Titchener My main reason for standing for the Community Board is that I am concerned with how the Council engages with the community. I would like to see more involvement and discussion on important issues. As the parent of two young children I am particularly concerned with the health issues that the Waipa District Council controls. I will champion the health concerns where Council is responsible and will work to hold Council to account. As an Accountant I will keep a careful watch on Council spend. If elected, I look forward to serving the Kakepuku community.

Kermit was wrong…it is easy being green By Viv Posselt

Despite Kermit the Frog’s protestations, it might be easy being green after all – as Cambridge’s In Stone Café has discovered. For the past six months or so, the Victoria St café has been offering customers the option of having their takeaway coffee in reusable New Zealand-made Ideal Cups with disposable, biodegradable tops. For $10 on top of the cost of their coffee of choice, the individual simply keeps the cup and brings it back the next time they visit the café. In doing so, In-Stone has saved 3250 disposable cups from ending up in a landfill. “We think it’s a great idea … the customers like it. Everyone’s happy,” said the café owner, Angela Bezzant. “It’s been quite easy for us to keep count of them, so we know we’ve saved that many from going into the landfill.” Angela said the concept was clearly a winner. “The idea came from a girl who worked for us, Kim Van Dorsten. She had seen it online and thought we should give it a try. It was a little slow to start, but then it really took off … it’s been going well ever since.” Local companies were among the keen supporters, Angela said. Several had purchased cups for their staff and little

notes on the wall next to the coffee machines lists employee coffee preferences. New Zealanders reportedly go through about 295 million cups of takeaway coffee a year, with most of the cups they use ending up in landfill.

You are what you eat Clinical nutritionist Ben Warren will visit Cambridge as part of a national tour next month to share recent findings on “the gut-brain connection”. He says gut microbes are biochemically connected to the brain and play a significant role in managing inflammation. He says a person’s gut health impact on mood may have more to do with dietary choices and bacteria populations than previously understood. “It is not just a lack of bacteria we have available but the fact that we aren’t feeding them with the right foods. The foods we eat literally change our microbiome.” He says up to 90% of serotonin and 50% of dopamine chemicals which impact mood and motivation - are made in the gut and that suggests “our happiness is in our gut’s hands”. Instead of eating to resolve hunger, he suggests eating to nourish, with whole foods rich in natural probiotics and prebiotics. To win two tickets to the Cambridge event on November 5, send your full name and contact phone number, along with the subject line “Gut-Brain Connection”, to sophie@ no later than 9am on Tuesday, October 15.

The suite of columnists contributing to your Cambridge News is growing. Today we introduce Peter Carr, the president of the New Zealand National Fieldays Society who will pen a monthly column – called The Age of Reason.

Politics and dreamers In my initial foray into promoting the views – and possibly needs – of those of advanced years I am mindful that the political stratosphere is full of promises for us old ‘uns. Firstly what is ‘old’? Is it a numerical barrier we break through or is it a state of mind? Is it a perception of our offspring or do we give up on mortgages and jobs and just slide into antiquity? Whatever the perception – or the reality – there is a large group of us out there still of sound mind, politically aware, continuing to appreciate the good oil (disguised as a decent Red) and having time to get into mischief. Which is translated for this epistle as the ability to provide sensible commentary on what is happening in the world with knowledge gained from having seen (most of) it pass by before. Currently we are viewing a diverse group of hopefuls who are craving for our attention as they jostle for a position at the local Council table. Singularly a few of them do appreciate that the promises they make will never eventuate due to the bureaucratic nature of local body officers. However,

the remaining dreamers are hell-bent on assuming that they will definitely improve our lot. But don’t expect much to happen in their first triennium. Which means they have to stick in there for the long haul. Politics of and in itself is fraught with dreamers. I was one once when asked to stand for Parliament (in Wellington). Luckily common sense prevailed, and I was thus freed – or rather escaped - from the likely possibility of being hauled through the mire by the media due to being perceived to babble nonsense from the green chairs. Two weeks ago, while visiting England I was witnessing hysterical jibes in the House from and to equally well meaning (and possibly disillusioned) politicians who are collectively, despite party allegiance, making a real hash out of the Brexit saga. Yet back here we see ridiculous decisions as witnessed by NZTA being ‘ready to go’ on the extension of the Cambridge by-pass. Landowners put on notice, money planned and contracts to build (almost) signed when a Greens-affected government

Peter Carr

put the cap on this worthwhile project. All the road widening, barrier wires etc will not reduce the annual number of callouts by the fine Cambridge Fire Brigade to the stretch between the end of the bypass and Piarere. So, the older folk will give a collective sigh. Seen it before. Done that. Now where is that Shiraz I was looking for? And finally, why me writing this? As a resident of an excellent Cambridge-based retirement village I have both the time and the opportunity to engage with, and listen to, the views of a fine bunch of people who have experienced the rigours, difficulties and opportunities of life. Just because they are ‘behind the gates’ does not mean that their minds have stultified nor their vigour for life diminished.

Super upgrade explained By Viv Posselt

There are now 10,000 outlets nationwide through which seniors can get discounts. Mr Peters said that since New Zealand First launched the initiative in August 2007, hundreds of thousands of New Zealander seniors had been able to stretch their dollar further. Ms Martin said over half the country’s seniors had smart phones, and many others could become tech-savvy if given support. The upgraded website and phone app, which enabled users to identify participating stores at the touch of a button, would enhance the card’s benefits, particularly to the increasing number of seniors living on fixed incomes or living in rental properties. She said the upgrades brought no physical changes to existing cards and did not call for further information to be provided by card-holders.

An upgrade to the SuperGold Card was long overdue, Cambridge seniors have been told. Addressing last week’s public meeting hosted by Cambridge Grey Power, Seniors Minister Tracey Martin said previous governments had invested ‘zero’ into the gold card over the past six years, leaving seniors confused over the benefits and battling to access information on participating businesses. The changes also brought more posters and counter cards into circulation, making it easier for card-holders not using the website to know where they could access discounts. An amount of $7.7 million invested in this year’s Budget for the revitalisation of the SuperGold Card would be of benefit not only to seniors, but also businesses she said. “There are 750,000 seniors in New Zealand, there are going to be over a million by 2036. That is a lot of consumers who will choose to use participating businesses rather than go elsewhere.” Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters and Ms Martin announced the changes on October 1. They include an updated website, a new app which lists participating outlets at the touch of a finger, and the addition of 500 more businesses in just the three months officials were Cambridge Grey Power president Val Massey with Seniors Minister working on the new card.

This month’s column supplied by the Cambridge Citizens Advice Bureau comes in the form of an explanation about Victim Support. Victim Support is an organisation which offers information and support to people who have been hurt by crime or a traumatic experience. Volunteers across the country offer their services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They can advise you on victim’s rights, financial assistance (for victims of serious crime) and the court processes, including helping prepare a victim impact statement. They can also liaise with the Police on your behalf and help arrange transport and accommodation for your court hearings. You can call Victim Support on 0800 VICTIM (0800 842 846). Other services include Victims of Crime Information Line (0800 650 654), available 24 hours, seven days and the Family Violence Information Line – (0800 456 450) for information about services available to you, open seven days, 9am-11pm. If you’re going to court as the victim of a crime, a Victim Adviser can explain the court process to you and support you during the process. Not to be confused with Victim Support, Victim Advisers are specialist staff employed by the Court to provide confidential support and information. They will normally get in touch with you after the alleged offender’s first appearance in court.

Slow down call from council

Drivers have been warned that a detour between Cambridge and Te Awamutu which adds up to 10 minutes to the journey is not a race-trck. The Waipa District Council says it is receiving reports of poor driver behaviour following the start of a major infrastructure project. Traffic heading from Cambridge to Te Awamutu is being detoured down Lamb Street, Roto O Rangi Road and McLarnon Roads because of work on the Te Awamutu Water Supply bulk main installation. The detour is in place Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm, and a traffic management system is in place outside of these times. During the detour, traffic heading toward Cambridge is unaffected. Project manager Martin Mould said the detour is not a chance to speed. “While we can appreciate the detour does add an average of 5-10 minutes to the journey between Cambridge and Te Awamutu, drivers should be factoring this in and leaving earlier, not trying to make up time through driving fast.” “The detour is not a racetrack.” When complete, the bulk water main will connect Pukerimu and Te Awamutu schemes which will reduce supply issues for Te Awamutu and surrounding areas and provide a secure and resilient supply for the overall district network. Information about the project is available at teawamutuwatersupply.

Students help Waste workshops RDA the Sallies planned for Waipā project St Peter’s students have raised money and collected toiletries for the Salvation Army’s work with the homeless, as part of the school’s charity engagement programme run through the school chapel. Students were invited to bring in a toiletry item that could be passed on to those in need. Hundreds of items were dropped into the Chaplain’s office and then passed on to the Salvation Army. Major Shaun Baker from the Salvation Army was overwhelmed when he saw eight large boxes full of soaps, deodorants, tooth paste and the like. To celebrate the Rugby World Cup, a mufti day was also held at the school with students wearing their supporting colours to raise money for homelessness around Cambridge. A total of $5800 was raised by staff, students and a couple of generous parents, with money passed on the Majors Karen and Shaun Baker to be used in and around the Cambridge area.

Drop-in sessions will be held in Te Awamutu and Cambridge to give advice to applicants for a conservation project with a $40,000-plus budget. Waipa District Council’s Waste Minimisation Fund is open until November 18. Previous successful applicants include beeswax wrap workshops aimed at reducing single-use plastics, and Waste Free Parenting workshops where new and expectant mums were introduced to different types of modern cloth nappies. The fund supports individuals or groups with their waste minimisation projects to encourage people to take responsibility for the waste they create and reduce the volumes of waste sent to landfills. Council waste minimisation officer Sally Fraser said projects with a strong focus on rethinking, reducing and reusing waste would be given top priority. “We are really keen to see businesses, groups and individuals take up the Waipā

way of dealing with waste which is to first focus on reducing waste as much as possible before looking at how to reuse it. “The very last options for our waste are recovering and recycling so projects that are based on these concepts won’t be given as high a priority.” The drop-in sessions will be held in Cambridge next Monday from 10am to noon at 23 Wilson Street and in Te Awamutu from 1pm to 3pm at the community space in the Te Awamutu library the following day. Applicants will be able to get advice on their projects. “I highly recommend people pop in to chat through their idea as I can steer them in their right direction for their projects. We really want to reduce waste in Waipā so the more successful applicants and successful projects we have the better,” Fraser said. Applications can be downloaded on the council’s website collected from Council offices in Cambridge or Te Awamutu.

More measles cases confirmed

Major Shaun Baker collects the toiletries donations for the Salvation Army – pictured here with, from left, Emily Wiffen, Jay Shipman, Shannon Trebes, and head dean Brenton Joubert.

The number of measles cases reported in Waikato since August 1 has risen to 23. The Medical Officer of Health Dr Richard Hoskins said the two latest cases were confirmed earlier the month. Reports suggest the disease has been spread to Australia and the United States from New Zealand.

This week Associate Health Minister Julie Anne Genter offered condolences to two women who suffered miscarriages as a consequence of the measles outbreak in Auckland. The signs of measles are a fever, runny nose, cough, sore red eyes or rash. Until more stocks of vaccine arrives in New

Zealand the priority for vaccine is ensuring children under 5 years receive immunisation at 15 months and 4 years. If you are worried that you or your family have symptoms or have been close to someone with measles you need to stay at home and call your nurse, doctor, or Healthline (0800 611 166).


Students have helped complete a shade tree project for Riding for the Disabled in Cambridge’s Vogel Street. Pathways students from Cambridge High School, including Tyler Potaka, Haka Tihema, Tom Goble, Izac Smith and Zach Bird helped with the construction of tree protection post and rails. The trees ordered are now planted and beginning to bud. Retired farmer and fencing contractor Greg Gascoigne taught the students fencing skills and is looking forward to more projects involving the students “as there will always be plenty of ongoing maintenance at the RDA”. The shade tree project has been backed by a Rotary Cambridge grant. Meanwhile, RDA says its new Friday “Independent Rider Class” events are proving popular – and it is calling for more volunteers to help. Volunteers do not have to have experience with horses.

Te Ara work continues Walkers and cyclists in the Waikato received a boost as Associate Transport Minister Julie Anne Genter announced the start of construction on the first section of the 20km Cambridge to Hamilton Te Awa shared path. Genter said while the path, which runs from Hamilton Gardens to Cambridge’s Avantidrome, will link existing routes that will make up the full 60km Te Awa River Ride. A total of 300,000 people are already using parts of the walkway each year. The river ride will comprise a cycleway from Ngaruawahia to Karapiro and involve three local body councils – Waipa and Waikato District and Hamilton City. “In addition to providing safer cycling and walking links to key facilities such as the school, shops and the church for the Tamahere community, this final link in the Te Awa shared path will bring further recreational and tourism opportunities to communities along the mighty Waikato River. The Cambridge to Hamilton shared path will be predominantly off-road and follow the banks of the Waikato River in places. It will also include bridges over stream gullies and boardwalks. Funding of $7.9 million has been confirmed for the Transport Agency delivered section of the path.

In total the cost of the full 20km shared path between Hamilton and Cambridge is estimated to be approximately $20 million. “I am confident the shared path between Cambridge and Hamilton will be a fantastic addition to the network of cycle trails in the Waikato and across New Zealand,” Genter said. Construction of the Transport Agency section is expected to be completed in six months. The three councils are expected to begin construction of their sections within the next year, with the full path complete by 2021.

Walk for freedom Students working their way to Japan

By Savannah Patterson

People will be dressed in black, raising signs and walking in silence in single file on October 19 in Cambridge to support the millions of human trafficking victims across the globe. As part of the global A21 Walk for Freedom event, people can meet at Victoria Square at 2pm, to walk down the main street to Countdown and back. Organisers Marie Kite and Leonie Pothan say this is an event that happens on the same day worldwide in 450 locations in 50 countries and reaching over 70 million people. A21 is a global anti-human trafficking organisation with 14 offices in 12 countries. The Walk for Freedom event has been running annually for six years and is a walk to raise money and awareness for human trafficking. Pothan says she decided to get involved after attending a Sistas annual women’s conference where co-founder of the A21 campaign Christine Caine spoke on the topic, and Kite after watching a documentary felt she needed to make a difference. “People assume human trafficking isn’t a big issue in New Zealand, but it is here in industry’s like agriculture, construction, dairy and food service for slave labour,” says Kite. In NZ children often from minority communities are exploited in sex trafficking. NZ had eight convictions for human trafficking in the period between 2018-2019. Pothan says that slavery today is the worst it’s ever been in history. “Only 1% of victims are ever rescued and it’s estimated to be a $218 billion industry. “The different areas of modern-day slavery include sex trafficking, forced labour, bonded labour, involuntary domestic servitude and child soldiers.”

By Sophie Iremonger

A21’s Walk for Freedom is a global event to make a stand against human trafficking. Marie Kite and Leonie Pothan have helped organise Cambridge’s walk on October 19.

She says A21’s mission statement is to abolish slavery everywhere forever. “Their process is to reach, rescue and restore. “They reach the vulnerable through prevention and awareness and they help rescue with local authorities and then have home set ups to help with restoration.” Kite and Pothan say the goal is to have 100 people walk in Cambridge. “If 100 walkers raise $100 that would make a huge difference.” Other organisers for this event include Sara Kenny, Zoe Forrest and Louise Harvey. Apparel is available to buy online. For more information contact Marie Kite at or Leonie Pothan at and to register for Walk for Freedom visit the website and follow the A21 campaign on Instagram and Facebook.

charity cycling event. A few have picked up afterschool jobs too. Their big event up next is a high tea fundraiser on October 19. Held at The Olde Creamery on Kaipaki Rd, 1pm - 4pm, it will include raffles, student entertainment and a Japanese drumming band. Tickets are $45 or $55 with a glass of champagne, and can be purchased through Calleigh Baker from the fundraising committee on 021 2528 622. “I think it’s awesome for the students to be involved in the fundraising,” said Calleigh. “They are learning that there is work involved to be part of this experience.” “I think it will be quite a beautiful trip, and it will be really cool to experience life in a Japanese school, especially at this age,” said Flora.

A group of 22 Cambridge High School students have been fundraising for a school trip of a lifetime, each raising at least $5000 for an April 2020 visit to Japan. “Fundraising for it and working for it makes you really appreciate the trip a bit more, especially when you work together,” said Flora Ingoe, who herself is half Kiwi, half Japanese. “I lived there up until I was 6 years old. I can’t quite remember what it’s like but going back will be like a complete refresher. I’m quite excited.” Like her Japanese-subject classmates Dillon Baker and Tommy Blackett, the trip would be the chance to see the culture first-hand. “We’ll have to use the language, and things like using directions and that, as part of our assessment,” said Dillon. “I’m really looking forward to the fact that it’s going to be quite different to New Zealand, seeing how different they are to us.” “I’d really like to immerse myself in the culture,” added Tommy. “And I can’t wait to see the buildings and their architecture, especially the temples.” Already the students have sold raffle tickets, pies, chocolate and Entertainment books, made over a thousand lunches for a Targa rally Flora Ingoe, Tommy Blackett and Dillon Baker can’t wait to see Japan’s event, held a quiz night, and cherry blossoms in April 2020 – but first they have to finish fundraising are planning a car wash and a for the trip.

all three were then picked for the national secondary school team. St Peters was represented by McDonald, Dylan Karpel and Feonn Ball. Allison and Pierce also shot for the New Zealand team in an international competition with Great Britain – but must wait a fortnight for the results. Cambridge team manager Sharonn Pirie said she was proud of the team’s achievements. “The quality of coaching the students have received from Glen Brownlee and Brad Pierce has been excellent and enabled these shooters to be their very best. “It was also great to team up with St Peter’s for the experience and represent Cambridge as a whole.”

William takes title By Andy McGechan

The trophy engravers will be working overtime after the 2019 edition of the New Zealand Mini Motocross Nationals in Hawke’s Bay at the weekend. And the jewellers may as well get templates made for the recipients too, as they’ll no doubt be etching some of these same names into silverware again in the near future. Talent certainly abounded at the Ngaruroro Raceway, at Mere Road in Fernhill, on the outskirts of Hastings, for this year’s two-day Un4Seen Decals-sponsored event – for riders aged between four and 11 years and riding bikes with engine capacities anywhere between 50cc and 112cc. With an impressively-large entry list and intense racing at the weekend, it showed the sport in a positive light and showed it was extremely healthy at this grassroots level. Cambridge rider William Pluck raced away with the premier trophy as he won the 9-11 years’ 65cc class, finishing the weekend 10 points clear of runner-up rider Rafe Paewai. Pahiatua youngster Paewai actually won more races than Pluck – clinching three of five wins in this class – but he failed to finish one race and this cost him dearly. Meanwhile, it was a fourth consecutive national mini motocross title win for Pluck, who had previously won the 7-11 years’ small trail bike class in both 2017 and 2018 and he had also won the 6-8 years’ 50cc intro trail bike class in 2016. Cambridge and Te Awamutu riders Van Hazelden, Zoe Verhoeven, Troy Downs, Jack Hazelden and Harry Pluck also featured in the standings.

Numbers up in local cricket

By Sophie Iremonger

Junior numbers enrolled for cricket in Cambridge have already passed last year’s record totals. Teams across Waikato will begin weekly Saturday games from October 26, and Friday

night junior cricket at John Kerkhof Park in Cambridge will kick off November 8. Anyone from age five can take part in junior cricket during school term, and anyone from secondary school age onwards can take up cricket – social or competitive – on weeknights or weekends.


off all dentures! OCTOBER ON LY! t's & c's apply

Over 18 players can play competitively in the club’s premier senior teams on weekends, and social players can play on Monday or Tuesday nights in twilight (or “business house”) cricket. Over 40 players can also compete under “antiques” cricket. With record numbers over the 2018-19 season, totaling nearly 600, the Cambridge Cricket Club hopes to see another stellar turnout this year. The club also has a new development manager on board. “Every year junior cricket is getting bigger and better, and we have a great facility now since moving to John Kerkhof Park last year,” said Steve Carter, chairman of Cambridge Junior Cricket. “We had the most numbers ever last year and we’ve already passed that, so it’s going to be a massive summer for us.” “With the deployment of Indi (Senarathne, cricket development manager) we’re really focused on player development, coach development and growing player numbers.” Alex Butler, captain of the Cambridge High School First XI cricket team, went through Cambridge Junior Cricket from a young age and said it made all the difference for him on the field. “I’ve played for six years now, starting with junior cricket. It definitely helped a lot, learning the basic skills,” he said. “I love

the competition of it (high school cricket), competing against other teams with a bit of fun rivalry, and improving my skills. “In fact I never would have found the game if I hadn’t come along to one of the Friday night trainings.” “I think with the Black Caps doing really well onto the world stage at the moment, it’s generating a lot of buzz here in New Zealand, particularly in Cambridge,” said Peter Vorster, a senior cricket player in Cambridge. “A lot of people are noticing cricket and the interest level is a lot higher.” Indika Senarathne said his main goal was to grow cricket in Cambridge, having developed the sport in the Hawke’s Bay for the past decade as a first-class cricketer for the Central Districts. “The most enjoyable thing is when the kids come and have fun with their mates, and their parents can watch their improvement. “The commitment they have for the game is really important because that’s going to be our future in cricket.” To register for Friday night junior cricket, email For twilight cricket, contact Nick Feast on 027 4636916.

The son of Nom du Jeu had won six of his 15 starts in previous campaigns, placing in another six including a third behind Volpe Veloce in the Gr.2 Japan-NZ International Trophy (1600m). All but one of those previous victories had come over longer distances than Saturday’s 1400m. But in his first start since March, he produced a potent sprint to claim the biggest win of his career to date. True Enough was brilliantly ridden by Jonathan Riddell, who moved him across to the rail in fifth position behind The Mitigator, Dawn Patrol, Deerfield and Stradivarius. Riddell angled True Enough off the back of The Mitigator in the straight and let him rip. The Mitigator showed plenty of fight, but True Enough wore him down and edged past to win by half a length. “He’s such a genuine horse,” co-trainer Andrew Forsman said. “He just keeps stepping up every time we raise the bar. “He’d run well in a couple of trials leading into this, so we were hoping he could sprint well fresh today. To be fair, it was the ride that won him the race. Saving that ground was key.” Bred and part-owned by octogenarian Mick Preston and wife Valda, True Enough has been lightly raced and could be in for his biggest season at the age of six. He is nominated for next month’s Gr.2 Coupland’s Bakeries Mile (1600m) at Riccarton, for which he is now rated an $18 chance. He may attempt to follow in the footsteps of Te Akau Shark, who won both the Spring Sprint and the Coupland’s Bakeries Mile last spring. “He’s just a really brave competitor,” Forsman said. “I think he’s started to race a little bit more truly now. Early on, when he was coming up through the grades, he tended to hit the front and look around a bit. “The type of horse that he is, I think stepping up to 1600m and 2000m should be no worry for him at all.” The Mitigator’s runner-up performance held plenty of merit after working hard in the lead through the early part of the race, while Hanger made up good ground late in the race to finish third.
