Tindall reopens city store



Proposal to boost east Chris Tobin

AN arts precinct centred around a 1880s building on the corner of Fitzgerald Avenue and Gloucester Street is an idea being proposed to the Christchurch City Council. Tony Gray said his family owned the heritage listed building on the corner at 187 Fitzgerald Avenue and wanted to give something back to the city. “We want a return on our land but not the maximum,� he said. “This concept would be good for the area and we feel council should come on board.� Mr Gray said the arts precinct would be a catalyst for further similar development in the eastern side of the central city which he considered had been neglected by the council over a long period. There was quite large number of old villas nearby which could be upgraded and redeveloped.

Here’s the plan: Peter Gray with plans for the site.

Mr Gray is proposing restoring the building which dates back to the 1880s and creating an arts precinct with artists’ studios, a performance theatre, a cafĂŠ/restaurant and work space for crafts people and designers. The money required would be between $3 million and $4 million. “We’d provide the building and land,â€? Mr Gray said. His family owns the corner site which covers 50 metres by 40m. “We’d forgo turning it into a Burger King to give an asset for the community especially for that (eastern) side of town. “It creates a great streetscape and forms a cornerstone for going into the city centre.â€? Mr Gray said the East Christchurch Arts Precinct proposal created “living heritageâ€? and met the requirements of the council’s Central City Draft Plan by fostering business, respecting the past, looking to the future. The location was close to transport routes. Mr Gray made a submission at the council’s Central City Draft Plan hearings. “Council seemed interested,â€? he said. The Gray family owns Town Reserve 97 which encompasses properties in Gloucester St and Fitzgerald Avenue. In the original survey of the city town reserves were created between the town belts of Moorhouse, Fitzgerald and Bealey avenues. Mr Gray said if the proposal gained support the building could be refurbished in 12 months.

“No. I think it is important to have an interest in sport. I have grown up with it and personally, I am never distracted from other issues.”

“It is hard to gauge. International issues are becoming more important, but because of our culture, we still place a lot of weight on sport.”

“Yes. To some people sport is their God and the stadium is like a church. Kia ora.”

Tom Doudney THE ecological crisis unfolding around the Bay of Plenty oil spill is a stark warning for Cantabrians about the dangers posed by impending oil exploration and drilling off our coast, a Greenpeace spokesperson says. Texas oil company Anadarko has two permits for deepwater drilling in search of oil and gas in the Canterbury basin in waters east and south of Banks Peninsula and is expected to start in October next year. The company is part owner of the well which was at the centre of last year’s Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Greenpeace climate campaigner Steve Abel said the organisation was opposed to offshore drilling around New Zealand, including in the Canterbury basin. “What is occurring now in the Bay of Plenty highlights exactly what is at stake with the risk of deep sea oil exploration.”

“I don’t think it is severely diminishing other things but at this time of the Rugby World Cup it has definitely been taken to the extreme.”

“It has been a once in a lifetime experience to host the Rugby World Cup in our own backyard, but I do think that we need to keep a focus on other issues.”

“It is. The rugby was the main headline on the television news when there were more important things to worry about, like the oil spill from that shipwreck.”

Rena oil spill a warning for Cantabrians



Gerard Trolove Catholic youth ministry worker Bryndwr

Although Anadarko was expecting that gas was more likely to be found than oil, Mr Abel said what they would actually find was unknown. “Either way, it’s an extremely risky process and at extreme depths and as we saw in the Gulf of Mexico, the risks are extreme and the ability of the technology to deal with things if they go wrong is not great.” This year a protest flotilla organised by Greenpeace and supported by the local iwi has been attempting to disrupt oil survey work carried out by Brazilian oil company Petrobas off the North Island’s East Cape. However Mr Abel declined to comment on whether similar action would be seen in Canterbury and said the organisation would not typically disclose such plans in advance. Environment Minister Nick Smith did not respond to questions sent to his office on Wednesday.

He’s picking the men in black to win and win well. “We’ve got enough injuries but we’ve got good replacements, we’re strong on the bench, even the people we’re bringing in are still strong and I don’t think Robbie Deans has that benefit.” The former All Blacks Our panel: Former All Black Tane Norton, centre left, and photographer Peter Bush, captain and hooker was centre right, shared their opinions along with fans Derrick Sam and Simon Holmes on joined for dinner on the left, and Tom Brunstrom and Johny Phair.

Warehouse South City reopens Good to be back: The Warehouse South City store manager Sharlene King, left, and Warehouse founder Sir Stephen Tindall, right, celebrate the store’s reopening yesterday morning along with the company mascot, Mr Kiwi. The store suffered significant damage in the February 22 earthquake and needed a completely new floor and interior fit-out. Sir Stephen said he wanted to show his support for the Warehouse’s Christchurch staff. “I have been down ten times since the earthquake and this is a special time for them and they definitely need support so there’s no question about coming,” he said. Ms King said seeing the store reopen was an emotional moment for her and the rest of the team. “It’s really great to be back open and getting back to what we have always done,” she said.

Thanks Christchurch! TODAY we are thrilled to be launching our first Weekend edition of our flagship publication Mainland Press, which from now on will be available twice a week throughout Christchurch. Today’s edition, aside from being our first weekend paper, is filled with lots of great new content, including stock listings, TV listings, a revamped Opinion page and of course more of the best in local news, views and advertising. After extensive reader and advertiser feedback, a weekend edition is the next step in our journey as a business. Since the events of February 22 our business, like so many others has gone through a huge amount of upheaval. From four papers before the earthquake we moved to one new masthead, Mainland Press to ensure we could reach all of Christchurch with many of our readers and advertisers being displaced. We have persisted and today represents the culmination of our team’s hard work. On a personal note, we are immensely proud of the work that has been put into the launch of this new edition. Our editor, Chris Tobin, our general manager of sales Peter Hampton, our production manager Lesley Stuart, and all our great team: Thank you for all your efforts over the last six months and for enabling this to happen. This could also not have happened without the support of


stitutions, and our advertisers, mostly local businesses, institutions, agencies, we would also importantly like to thank you. ress Please remember that Mainland Press is a local, family owned business. We are committed to Christchurch, and everything we ing do is about our local community. By reading our paper, and supporting our advertisers, you s. are ensuring that a truly local paper thrives. Thank you for your support Pier and Charlotte Smulders Directors Mainland Press

Chris Tobin

A new journey begins IT has been a case of being nimble on our feet at Mainland Press this week. No sooner had we put the Wednesday issue of Mainland Press to bed, to use an old newspaper term, than we were into another – the one you are now reading. There have been a few logistical issues and challenges in the change but it is exciting and I am sure this paper will become even better known and recognised around the city and further afield. And so a new journey begins. Having started in journalism a long time ago when there were linotype machines, typewriters for punching out stories, no faxes, no cellphones, no email, no work computers, no digital cameras you learn to get used to change in this occupation. Speaking of journeys the All Blacks will find out on Sunday evening whether their World Cup

journey ends with the match against the Wallabies or continues on to the final next weekend. With injuries hitting hard, ‘Ted’ Henry and his two fellow wise men seem to be whistling up all sorts of players to bolster the ranks. It shows all the planning in the world and careful selection of players can go out the window in an emergency. Before the tournament kicked off former All Blacks coach ‘Grizz’ Wyllie said if we lost Dan Carter and Richie McCaw New Zealand would be “stuffed.” We lost one, the other, McCaw, is struggling with an injury but at the time of writing will lead out the team on Sunday. I’m just hoping the All Blacks ‘machine’ hangs together, rolls over ‘Dingo’ Deans’ crew and gets into that final.

Councillors share property owners’ concerns Tom Doudney

PERSISTENT heavy criticism of the Christchurch City Council’s draft central city plan from business and property owners appears to have gained traction at the council table. Of the six councillors who spoke to Mainland Press this week, most expressed some level of agreement on the concerns raised. Cr Glen Livingstone said the views of the business community and investors had definitely had an impact on this thinking as they were “the experts”. “I think our aspirations for a green city can still be a part of that. I can’t see a reason why it has to be either business or green, you can have both. “We’ll just have to compromise on things like car parking, building height and so forth. If we didn’t’ do that we wouldn’t be being responsible” Cr Aaron Keown said his opinions hadn’t really changed but he tended to agree with the concerns of property owners. “For those that said the city wasn’t’ working before

I would say that a lot of that was the barriers that the council was putting in the way for development. “I actually ran for council because the council was falling over itself to make the city not work.” Cr Yani Johanson said concerns he had previously expressed over the short timeframe of the submissions process and lack of publicly available analysis had now been vindicated. “There wasn’t enough engagement on volume two [of the draft plan] so not only do you have the business community really irate and upset, you have also got the inner city residents really fuming.” Cr Tim Carter said the business community had “raised some very valid concerns”. Crs Barry Corbett and Jamie Gough declined to comment in detail on their views but said the submission process had raised questions, as would be expected. Any issues could now be discussed and worked through.

Lincoln students lend a helping hand Samantha Early

PATIENTS at the Burwood Spinal Unit and students of the Van Asch Deaf Education Centre will benefit from a donation by Lincoln University’s future leaders scholars. The group of about 80 students raised $18,000 through their Lend a Hand scheme, which involved them doing jobs in their home towns during semester breaks in exchange for donations. Some students also donated their own wages from holiday work. In total the students did about 2000 hours of labouring, from gardening at Kerikeri to farming at Moktua in Southland. Fourth year future leaders scholar Megan Ash said following the February earthquake they wanted to help Burwood, who they’d worked with in the past and Van Asch, which was based in Sumner and had been affected by the quakes. “We never really expected we would raise this much…it’s just outstanding how much we have raised and the students are just stoked.” New Zealand Spinal Trust CEO Ben Lucas was presented with $13,000 which he said would go towards improving an outdoor area at the Burwood Spinal Unit, a Oamaru stone sculpture by an artist who is in a wheelchair and a van to take patients on outings. “We’re very grateful for the fact they’ve given up income earning opportunities for themselves to pay off their student loans to go towards the charities,” Mr Lucas said.

Bridge work still going on THE cranes may be lying idle, but Kevin Locke, the Christchurch City Council’s general manager capital programme, says work on the Ferrymead bridge has not stopped, even though the piling contractor is not currently operating. The project to strengthen and widen the bridge had started before the February 22 earthquake, but the event caused substantial damage to the bridge and work ceased while options for the bridge were considered, Mr Locke said. “The contractor, HEB Construction, has been instructed to start working on the bridge again, but due to other earthquake-related work, has been delayed in restarting at the bridge. In the meantime, design and planning work is continuing on-site, but the piling contractor has not restarted work,” he said. The $ 9.8 million project will take around two years to complete once the contractor restarts. The full duration of the contract was 119 weeks, with the original completion date being December 2012. Mr Locke said the council had insurance cover on the existing bridge and on the contract works and the majority of the additional costs would be covered by this insurance.

Battling for the ‘red zoners’ Christine de Felice

REVEREND Mike Coleman is a man on a mission – to support the people in the red zone whose government pay-out won’t be enough to buy another section to rebuild their homes. He wants the government to take another look at the decision it made regarding the wproperties in the red zone. A former teacher at St Bede’s – coincidentally at the same time as Earthquake Recover Minister Gerry Brownlee taught there – the Christchurch-born and raised Reverend Coleman seems to instinctively side with the life’s strugglers. “It’s letting the love flow from the inside – like the koru, which is the symbol of new life, it flows outwards.” After becoming a Baptist minister in the early 1990s, from 1995 to 2001 he was involved with the Delta Community Support Trust, an organisation that “provides empowerment programmes for the urban disempowered.” He went on to provide counselling services at Richmond Primary School and advocacy services Advocate: Reverend Mike Coleman is supporting people in the red zone who have lowon behalf of people in the community that needed valued land. such support.

Silver screen: Nick Paris has been manning the NZ On Screen film caravan at the Fanzone in North Hagley Park during its two week stay in Christchurch which began on Saturday. Visitors can choose from a range of material including TV, feature film, short film and music videos to view. The restored 1971 Oxford caravan, sourced from a farm in Whanganui, has been travelling around the South Island during the Rugby World Cup on its Kiwi Classics Tour. It is part of the Real New Zealand Festival, celebrating

New Zealand identity and running in parallel with the world cup. The tour began in Picton on September 8 and will end when its time in the Fanzone wraps up on October 23. Mr Parris said he had managed to land himself a great job. “It’s a moveable feast really, celebrating the best of what it means to be a New Zealander.” See page 16 for what’s on at the Fanzone this weekend.

New bus interchange to operate CHRISTCHURCH bus users will have a new temporary bus interchange from the end of the month. Located on Lichfield Street, near Ballantynes, Central Station opens on Tuesday, October 25, and will replace the two bus termini currently operating on Hagley and Bealey avenues. Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker said this was the first piece of infrastructure to be built in the Central City since February’s devastating aftershock and marked a significant first step in the regeneration of Christchurch. “Central Station will bring people back into the Central City again, restoring some of its vibrancy and giving many people their first glimpse of how our city now looks. “It will initially consist of basic platforms and shelters

but progressively develop to include under-cover waiting rooms, ticketing, real-time bus information and amenities.” It is hoped the exchange will reduce travel times for passengers using Environment Canterbury’s Metro services. It will also restore some key bus routes that pass through the central city. Environment Canterbury Transport Commissioner Rex Williams said Central Station was an essential component in the rebuilding of Metro. Mr Williams said improvements to bus routes, including new routes for work centres around Sheffield Crescent, Addington/Middleton and Hornby, would be rolled out at the end of the month. Bus timetables, maps and routes are online at or passengers can call Metroinfo on 366 8855.

New business supports teachers

New Brighton businesses coming back Gina McKenzie

NEW Brighton is recovering from the February 22 earthquake and according to local business people the beachside suburb could transform itself into a family destination. “There’s so much untapped potential here”, business co-owner and member of the New Brighton Business Association Nikki Griffin said. “We have the perfect opportunity to turn New Brighton into a place where people come to shop, play, eat and enjoy time with their families.” Mrs Griffin said with the addition of a family attraction such as hot pools and more stores the area could really thrive. “It takes more than one person to shift a mountain though so we all

have to work together and come up with a creative blueprint for the future of Brighton. “We already have so much natural beauty here with the coastline and the forest. It would just take a bit of planning and development to get things rolling.” Quicksilver outlet factory manager Nick Mooney said business had been so positive over the last two years that he had opened a DC outlet store next to his original store. “We opened the second store at the end of August and things are going really well. “When staff from our head office in Australia come to visit they fall in love with Brighton.”

Mr Mooney wanted to see more retail outlet stores in New Brighton. “It would just take a few more stores to get things started. We could develop a really positive retail area with quality outlet stores.” Kura Cochraen opened the Honey Café just before the June aftershock but said business was strong and she felt excited about New Brighton’s future. “I’m feeling really positive. “I’ve had great feedback about the café so far and I think Brighton will take off and have a real resurgence. “Businesses out here have a unique character that people really enjoy and we have to focus on developing that.”

A LACK of professional support organisations for teachers following February’s earthquake prompted Linwood College teacher Craig Fortune to create a new business to fill the void. “While talking to friends in the police and fire service after the earthquake I realised that there wasn’t a support organisation in place for teachers. “Teachers went through a lot of trauma after the earthquakes and had to support their students through very difficult times. “We had to appear calm, collected and in control of ourselves in front of up to 150 traumatised young people each day.” Mr Fortune wanted to give something back to teachers so he created Teachers Inc which is an employee welfare organisation. “The idea behind Teachers Inc is to provide teachers and support staff with a unique welfare system that provides benefits to reward the hard work that teachers do. “Since I’m a teacher myself I had an insight into what sort of benefits might be useful for those in the profession.” Along with discounts members can access grants for the birth of a child or death of a loved one and for family fun days. “Members from across the region will be able to get together with colleagues and families for a fun day out away from the daily stress of work.” Mr Fortune said Teachers Inc would launch in the Canterbury region on October 25.

Funds donated to expand tissue bank RESEARCH into reducing the impact of cancer on the community will be advanced with a donation of $5500 from the Lions Club of Christchurch Host. The funding will go towards the purchase of an additional minus 80 degree freezer used to store tissue samples made available for cancer research and operating expenses that will enable expansion of the tissue bank. Part of the funding is disbursement of an estate left to Lions by former member Les Burt.

Investments of that fund have previously generated $3600 of grants, but this grant, supplemented by funding from the Lion’s Lloyd Morgan Charitable Trust and additional funding, is the largest single grant from the club in recent years.

Unique auction for St Albans school INTERESTING items including a “meals on heels” catered dinner for 12 are up for auction at the St Albans Catholic School gala which will be held at 7pm on November 4. School families and local businesses have thought laterally to come up with unique auction items to raise funds for e-learning. School principal Annette Sjoberg started the ball rolling by offering herself as a babysitter for an evening and also giving the highest bidder the chance to

be principal for a day. School families followed suit and if you are looking for a builder including $1000 of building materials, a doctor to complete a full skin check, a tutor to help your teenagers prepare for end of year exams or a sports coach to prepare you for the upcoming cricket season then you are in luck. Along with the auction there will be live music, raffles, crafts, plants, home baking and a white elephant stall. The gala begins at 5pm.

Sports link up to form Elmwood Club

Bright future: Elmwood Club chairperson Bill Lee says the plan is to have an indoor training centre. Photo: Chris Tobin


Red zone should be green, group says HIGH levels of support for greening the red zone has resulted in the formation of a new lobby group – the Avon-Otakaro Network (AvON). Set up after a public meeting in July, the group wants to see the Avon River red zone turned into a reserve and park once owners have left and has launched a petition asking Parliament to “work with the people of Christchurch to achieve this”. Group spokesperson Dr Suzanne Vallance said the Share an Idea campaign, which invited public comment on the city’s future, also revealed strong support for continuous parklands and reserves along the banks of the Avon to the sea and cycle and walkways along the river. The reserve would be an opportunity to improve the ecology of the city,

improve the water quality of the Avon and estuary and create a tribute to those who died and those who lost their homes in the February 22 quake, the group believed. There would also be economic benefits as such amenities that were important in attracting and retaining a skilled workforce, Dr Vallance said. AvOn is a not-for-profit group and members include red zone residents, scientists, local body politicians and others. As well as collecting signatures for the petition over the next three months, the group will gather scientific and economic evidence concerning the land around the Avon river. More information or a copy of the petition form can be obtained by emailing

integrated centre with indoor training facilities which all could use.” Sport Canterbury development manager Rob Ecclestone said the partnership was one of three that had been established in the city – the others are Westminster Sports and Rawhiti Community Sports Inc - and if established properly these could be the future face of sport in the region. “Sport Canterbury’s role has been to provide support and guidance and to facilitate discussions. Now we’ve stepped back,” Mr Ecclestone said. Talks were being held which could see St Nicholas Netball Club joining the new organization. “We’ll also be doing community activities for primary school kids and we’ll be working in with St Andrew’s College and Heaton Intermediate,” Mr Lee said.

up the flowers, bird life and voluptuous flowering Rhododendrons and Magnolias, I realised I was running late for my next appointment and had to leave in a hurry. Escapism at its best and what’s more it didn’t cost a thing! The time just flew by and boy did I feel good, enriched and reinvigorated and exceptionally grateful for having such a place of solace to escape to.It’s not just the flowers that appealed to me, it was the carpets of petals that covered the grass, Kowhai, Magnolia and mats of blossom certainly add to the charm of the gardens. I spoke to numerous visitors, even a few South African rugby fans who were just soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying a change of pace. They asked: “Is this park always so colourful and green?” Was it planted just for the Rugby World Cup?”. To their first question I answered with a confident and easy ‘yes’. I answered the second one with a laugh and wished them a good day and said ‘of course it’s just for you!”, as little did they know their team was about to lose to Australia on Sunday. Mona Vale is also open, with a wide array of enticing flowering plants and ducklings roaming the grounds ready to welcome you with open wings. It’s vital that Christchurch retains its world class parks, botanical gardens and landmarks that cement it as the horticultural hub of the country. The city needs to maintain its heritage plantings, collections and diversity and develop new areas that match the wants and needs of people today and in the future. Being part of the CERA community forum is my


opportunity to put forward the requirements and needs of community groups, the nursery and landscape industries and environmental organisations that have a connection to gardening in any way shape or form. I believe no one planting theme should dominate, but a blend, chosen to showcase the vibrancy of a region that continues to grow. Our city is all about us, the people who eat, work, sleep and live here. Let our gardens, schools, parks and walkways reflect the diversity of plants, gardens and designs to create a harmonious and world class Garden City.

Science Alive!’s

Although we are no longer in the Science Alive building you may have seen us out and about in schools and the community. During the school holidays come visit the Rugby Challenge at North Hagley Park. There are ten interactive, fun rugby activities for you to try. This week we meet Glenn Martin, kiwi innovator and inventor of the Martin Jetpack. We have jetpack and rocket activities and a ‘Design Your Own Jetpack’ Competition.



Make a Balloon Rocket Straw & Tape

Kiwi Innovator of the Week Thread

Materials Balloon, cotton thread (at least 3 metres long), straw (bendy bit cut off ), sticky tape. 1. Tie the thread to an object (door knob, chair etc). 2. Put the thread through the straw and tie the other end to another object. Make sure the thread is tight. 3. Blow up the balloon without tying a knot. Hold the end of the balloon closed and get a friend to tape the balloon to the straw as shown in the picture. 4. Let go of the balloon. It will go flying across the string. What’s Happening? The air inside the balloon is under high pressure. It wants to escape into the low pressure area outside the balloon. The escaping air provides the forward motion (thrust) down the thread.

Glenn spent many years working on his dream of building a jetpack; finding what it takes to get off the ground and experimenting with different designs. In 1997, the seventh jetpack model was powerful enough to lift its first test flier, Glenn’s wife Vanessa.

Earlier this year, the Martin Jetpack Prototype 11 flew a dummy 1500 metres high during a remote controlled test flight. Previously, the jetpack had been flown to just over 15 metres. Now the Martin Aircraft Company is ready to start making the world’s first commercially available jetpack. Glenn’s aim is to develop and sell the most advanced and innovative aircraft in the world. The jetpack is Glenn’s childhood dream of flying come true and now it’s worldwide news. For video’s of the jetpack in action see

“People are not servicing their systems. This should be done every two to three years, and it’s a good me to do it now before the summer rush,” he says. Auto electrical work, such as supplying, rebuilding and fing of alternators or starters are another speciality that can also be completed by the team. Five years ago Hornby Auto Electrics switched to the "Endurant Baery" brand.

New Elantra steps up


The Hyundai Elantra is a modern, sophisticated and attractively styled sedan.

Just because a model is a stellar seller overseas, it doesn’t necessarily mean it will be embraced with open arms and wallets by buyers in this country. The Hyundai Elantra is a good case in point. The Elantra is the most popular model Hyundai has globally, yet for over 15 years it has battled to get any sales traction in our market. There are no obvious reasons for it failing to hit the sweet spot with buyers here. A three-tier sedan-only model range starts at $35,995 – at the other end of the price spectrum is the $41,990 flagship Elite Limited. Parked neatly between this pair is the $39,990, Elite, which was provided for this road test. The 2.0-litre engine used in the previous Elantra was sent packing to make way for a smaller capacity 1.8-litre unit offering similar levels of power and torque. This is a new engine in both design and name, coming from Hyundai’s Nu generation of power plants. This particular one musters 110kw - enough to punch the Elantra along at the sort of pace that will hit the right spot for many buyers. Prospective purchasers looking for better than fair-to-middling performance will be mildly disappointed, and will be better to shop elsewhere. The engine’s efforts to play hard and fast are frustrated by its torque delivery. In non-technical speak that is the low-speed pulling power, and where it is delivered in the rev range. Torque delivery can make the difference between a car being a snooze mobile and a ball of energy. The problem with the Nu engine is that it does not deliver its 175nm-worth of maximum torque until the motor is spinning at a fairly frenetic 4,700rpm. If Hyundai was able to organise things so the ETA for peak torque was around 1,000rpm earlier, it would give the motor a far livelier feel. Regardless of how cleverly the sweet-shifting six-speed automatic sliced and diced the gear changes, it still only managed to raise the engine’s performance a whisker or two above the average mark.

While the Elite I drove was the mid-range model, it had more than enough creature comforts and luxury features to satisfy most. The remainder are likely to be those who insist on all the trappings of automotive life in their vehicles and they pretty much get that by going the next rung up the Elantra ladder to the Elite Limited. Apart from a roofline that falls away fairly steeply toward the rear of the car and shaves off a few centimetres of rear headroom for back-seat occupants along the way, this is one of the roomier sedans in its class. There is also the bonus of a deep, well-proportioned boot that can stash away a surprising amount of luggage. Independent suspension front and rear provides good handling and a compliant ride, although a bit jittery at low speeds over the uneven surfaces you now frequently find in Christchurch driving. The car feels nicely balanced over winding terrain and displays good adhesive qualities over poorly cambered or pitted road surfaces. Sure there are other cars in this class that are more nimble, but overall the Elantra has enough road- holding smarts to stay on the pace set by most of the competition.

This less than a year old highly specified contemporary home exudes quality and chic sophiscaon in its interior décor and construcon. Built of reassuring lt slab concrete this impressive property appears completely unscathed by the recent seismic events offering you a unique and wonderfully secure opportunity to buy a brand new home on the flat so close to the village and beach. With three spacious double bedrooms all beaufully appointed with their own ensuite, there is absolutely no need to compromise on bedroom and bathing facilies. The downstairs guest quarters extends you a mulplicity of configuraons as it could be a master bedroom/retreat with ensuite. It also offers a separate adjacent lounge area with kitchen sink/breakfast bar area and access to its own private courtyard, perfect for visitors, long term family stays or a self-contained office space. Otherwise you could ulise it as the current owners do, with the guest lounge configured as their media room. The upstairs level comprises the master bedroom and

addional bedroom with a mezzanine lounge/library or office space between them. The undeniably exquisite kitchen is stunningly appointed with a mass of white Caesar stone and an abundance of bench space and storage for the serious master chefs with the generous breakfast bar offering a great backdrop for entertaining. There is also a separate 'morning breakfast bar'. The high quality fixtures and fings include Italian les throughout, imported French Linen so furnishings and the double vaulted ceiling space over the dining area, combined with the abundance of natural light and space, make for an exceponal feel and funconality in this stunning home. Don’t hesitate to arrange a private inspecon of this fasdiously designed and constructed home - you will be inspired.

For professionals they still have a lot to learn

AFTER 45 round robin matches in the 2011 Rugby World Cup have been completed we have arrived at the sharp end of this tournament. Martin Snedden and his team have by and large have done a magnificent job in showing the rest of the world and a huge number of doubting Thomases that little old NZ can put on an outstanding global tournament. Sadly that professional approach has not been displayed by some of the competing teams. Stupid, idiotic behaviour exhibited by some of the members of the attending teams have tarnished this show piece for the game of rugby. Why you would want to behave the way some have, completely mystifies me. The World Cup is the ultimate opportunity for managers, coaches and most importantly the players to show their wares to a huge world-wide audience. Some of the goings on would not be acceptable by a third grade social team. For God’s sake, some want all the perks that come with professional sport, but still want to live the “Jack the Lad” lifestyle. The buck should not just be allowed to stop at the

player’s feet. A total buy into what is expected lies fairly and squarely with management as well as the “dick head” clowns who play the game. If you talk to top rugby players from yesteryear, they will tell you that they would have virtually given up all the successes they enjoyed, for the opportunity to take part in a World Cup, just once in their careers. Surely by now everyone knows just how hard it is to lift the Webb Ellis Trophy. After all you are asked to play the best opposition that can be assembled at the time and any time you stub your toe in the competition, it can well be” all over red rover.” Is it too hard for the competitors, who are all highly paid, over pampered, overly protected specimens to get it into their heads that to be crowned world champions comes with a lot of dedication and self sacrifice? Take a lesson out of the performance of Snedden’s team and get your act together and spare a thought for your country and more importantly your teammates when you have a brain explosion that tells you it is ok to go and make a “dork” of yourself.
