Back from the dead Andrew Board The decision was made, David Currie’s family would not allow him to live life as a vegetable. They had come to accept medical advice that said he had only a one percent chance of living and if he did he would be blind, deaf and brain dead. They had made the horrific decision to turn off life support and moved him from Nelson Hospital to Nelson Hospice. After four days of no food or water, but increasing amounts of Morphine for pain, David’s family thought they had only about 10 hours left with

their father, husband, brother and son. Then he woke up and said he was hungry. “That threw a spanner in the works,” jokes David’s brother Mark, who along with the rest of his grieving family was in a state of shock as the ambulance was called for and David moved back to Nelson Hospital. “We had all accepted that he was gone, we were already planning the funeral and he had been read his last rights by a local priest. We were braced to say goodbye.” In January 2009 David LIVING LIFE TO THE FULL: David Currie with his wife Wendy and their three daughters Renee, 15, Maia, 6, and 16.

Intervention ends stand off over pool Andrew Board

Nelson swimmers are back in the water after a standoff between swim clubs and the ASB Aquatic Centre was ended, thanks to intervention by the Tasman District Council. Last week junior swimmers at the Nelson, Nelson South and Waimea swim clubs were left with nowhere to train after their

usual winter training times at the ASB Aquatic Centre in Richmond were taken away from them by centre managers, Community Leisure Management. CLM, an Auckland-based company that manages the pool on behalf of TDC, has created its own swim academy this season and it gave the new academy most of the swim times the three clubs held previously. This left more than 100 local swimmers out

in the cold – unless they signed up to the CLM academy, which costs $234 a term. Swim club officials and parents were furious they were told they could not train in the only indoor pool in the region that is 25 metres long, the length of most competitions the swimmers compete in. Riverside Pool is the only other indoor pool in the Nelson and Tasman region, but is 33 metres in length.

NEWS IN BRIEF

Pool stand off over FROM PAGE 1

• Nelson Police say the custodial sentence handed down to a man who attacked another man in the early hours of the morning outside a Bridge St bar is a timely reminder of the need to clean up Nelson before the Rugby World Cup. Scott Douglas Rowe, 30, from Christchurch, appeared in the Nelson District Court on Thursday May 12 and was sentenced to two years and two months in prison for reckless wounding. In November last year Rowe had been drinking in the city when he got into an altercation with another man. Rowe found an empty beer bottle, smashed the end off it and attacked the victim around the head. He then left the scene in a taxi. The victim received lacerations up to 60mm deep, one of which was just 3mm from his jugular vein. Nelson Bays Area Commander Brian McGurk says it was just good luck that the incident didn’t become a homicide. • NMIT last week announced one of its best annual financial results, in its 2010 Annual Report. The report records a group surplus of $5.3m (9 percent of income) as well as the successful completion of a range of projects; the meeting and exceeding of key education performance indicators, objectives and service performance targets.

BIG WINNER: Tim Knight has never won anything more than a meatpack from the local pub. So when he recieved a call from Heineken saying he had won an $8000 home entertainment package, he was more than ecstatic. Tim will receieve a Toshiba 55 inch plasma screen television and a laptop courtesy of a Heineken Rugby World Cup competition. “It’s certainly pretty welcoming. There’s nothing in the fridge other than Heineken at the moment.” Photo: Phillip Rollo.

growing amount of anger and frustration from parents towards the pool for its stance. “Every winter the swim clubs train here, it was one of the reasons it was built, and for them [CLM] to turn around and say ‘well we can make more money this way’ is not on. It is a community facility for the community, not to line the pockets of some Auckland company.” Paul Thornton, president of the Nelson Swim Club, says a letter was received late on Friday by TDC community services manager Lloyd Kennedy which gave the clubs most of the times it had previously held. “It was a big relief. It was a shock when the whole thing happened. It was very strange situation but we are really happy it’s ended.” Centre manager Robert Kennedy could not be reached for comment. Nelson mayor Aldo Miccio says he was informed of the situation by concerned parents and says he is glad the centre has done a u-turn and allowed swimmers back in the pool.

Photo News going digital this week Locals will get a chance to recapture the 1960’s and 70’s when the digitalised version of Photo News goes viral this week. The friends of the Nelson Library Microfilm Committee responded to community pressure to do something about preserving and making accessible this valuable resource. With funds left over from other microfilming and digitisation projects, a decision was made to digitise the first 12 years of the Nelson Photo News from 1960 to 1972, which covered the period of editorship under Barry Simpson and later, Peter Skinner. To complete a shortfall in funding for the project, the committee applied to be part of a Digital NZ poll, where projects throughout New Zealand competed for votes. The two highest polling projects were each awarded a $10,000 grant. The Nelson Photo News proved a popular choice in the Digital NZ poll, with many comments being posted on the site. The resulting win gave the project sufficient funds to complete the digitisation work, which will see searchable copies of each issue from the chosen years available online. The website is www.photonews.org.nz/nelson and goes online tomorrow.

‘Revolutionary’ Hyundai expected in NZ this year A sporty new coupe from Hyundai will change the game this year. The three-door Veloster has just been launched in Korea. It’s expected in New Zealand late this year. Among its revolutionary design features are one door on the driver’s side but two doors on the opposite side, allowing easy rear seat access. Veloster introduces a new 1.6-litre Gamma engine giving an impressive 6.2 l/100km, with a manual gearbox driven through the front wheels. An automatic transmission will return 6.5 l/100km. And Veloster bristles with hi-tech wizardry. “Hyundai designers wanted to create an eco-vehicle loaded with technology that also gives people the connectivity they have everywhere else these days,” explains Tom Ruddenklau, Chief Operating Officer at Hyundai New Zealand. “It has cost US$24 million over a 40-month pe-

riod to develop Veloster – the car is a lot of fun but Hyundai is very serious about this project.” Veloster is part of Hyundai’s new communication brand in South Korea called ‘Premium Youth Lab’ to target the younger generation by offering premium emotional values. The hard-charging auto maker is limiting numbers available to retain exclusivity. Unlike past coupes using smaller rear-hinged access doors, Hyundai’s fresh take provides a conventionallyhinged door on the passenger side for safe and ready access to the surprisingly spacious rear seats. The passenger-side rear door handle is hidden to maintain the coupe design. “And with an interior size the best in its class, advanced safety technologies as standard, and sporttuned electric power steering plus a suspension setup that’s world-class, Veloster is the coupe we are all waiting for,” said Mr Ruddenklau.

Local dog best tracker in NZ Nelson police dog Saegar was crowned the best tracking police dog in New Zealand last week. Saegar, with handler Julian Lewis, also finished second overall in the four day National Police Dog Championships in Trentham last week. It is the second time the duo have taken out the runners up award with Julian saying one challenge let them down this time round. “We were only 25 points off winning, we dropped points on one exercise and that cost us but I’m pretty pleased to do so well again. He is a special kind of dog and was pretty unlucky not to take it out.” It was also the second time they won the Colin Guppy Trophy for best tracking dog. “I’m very pleased to win that again, that award means a lot to us and shows how good Saegar is, he is a fantastic tracking dog and hopefully we’ll have another crack at the top title next year,” says Julian.

Recycling bins around Nelson will recycle thousands of tonnes of glass, plastic and paper says Environment Minister and Nelson MP Nick Smith. The Love NZ campaign was offically launched in Nelson last Friday and is timed to coincide with the Rugby World Cup. “The Rugby World Cup is the biggest event New Zealand has hosted. This campaign is about recycling what would otherwise go to landfill and showing our 85,000 international guests that we care for our environment. This is about turning large volumes of waste into an opportunity to reinforce our clean, green brand,” says Nick. Bins are in high profile sites like 1903 Square, the Saxton Field sport complex, Tahunanui Beach Reserve and Trafalgar Park.

Sixth Stage Challenge title just a wish away St John offers Phillip Rollo Nayland College won’t need a genie’s wish to reach their third title in as many years at the regional Stage Challenge final tonight. The perennial favourites are confident their continued originality and passion will conquer above their secondary school counterparts. The award cabinet at Nayland College’s reception showcases every single title since 2005, except for 2008, and choreographer Sam Lagrutta says their latest performance, Just a Wish Away, has the recipe for more success. Just a Wish Away is an Arabian themed performance about a group of kids who come across a magic lamp. But are the genie’s three wishes everything they really desired? “The storyline is something that we haven’t really done before,” says Sam. “That what makes ours different.” With huge success comes huge pressure and that is something the students have had to overcome, he says. “There’s a lot of pressure to come up with something new and exciting, something that hasn’t been done before. There is so much drama behind the scenes it’s not even funny. But it will all come together.” Each school is well aware of the story STAGE STARS: Nayland College Stage Challenge performers Sam Lagrutta, Kristie De Feu, lines each other has come up with, deLucy Everett, Ellora Virtue, Monica Gonzalez, Mink Witowski, Jared Neame and Leah Tenetti spite ideas trying to be kept hidden. after their dress rehersal on Sunday night.

free blood presure checks St John is encouraging people to have their blood pressure checked for free this Saturday. The free checks are available right around the country and are part of the Stroke Foundation’s national campaign to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of stroke. In Nelson the free checks are held at Nelson city New World and Stoke New World. St John Medical Director Tony Smith says St John is pleased to be supporting the campaign, and will be providing checks right around the country. “This is a good opportunity for people to have a quick, painless check,” he says. “We’re all so busy with families, work, sport and other activities that it can be hard to make the time for something as simple as a blood pressure check, and yet it could end up saving our lives. It’s easy for high blood pressure to go undetected. St John is committed to helping the community to stay healthy, and we’d really encourage you to come along for a free test.” Information about blood pressure and other risk factors for stroke will be provided during the check, and people with raised blood pressure will be referred to their GPs for medical advice and treatment.

What do you want Nelson to be like in 50 years? How will we get there? Please come along to a community gathering to share your ideas and vision for our future. These sessions will be active, stimulating and hopefully inspiring! Refreshments are provided and everyone is welcome.

CANTEEN MAN: Stoke resident Alister Gregg is handing over the keys to the Saxton Field canteen this season. Photo: Teresa Hattan.

Familiar face set to leave Saxton Field

Alister Gregg can tell you a lot about confectionary and it’s not because he has a sweet tooth. The Stoke man has run the canteen at the Saxton Stadium netball courts for the past eight seasons, selling lollies, food and drink to netball players and supporters. He will be stepping out of the canteen this year and passing along the keys just as soon as someone is appointed to replace him. Alister says the best part about the job in the popular canteen has been meeting young players and watch them move up the grades. Several things have changed over the years though, including the new Saxton Stadium complex where senior netball is now played. The construction of an indoor facility was an interesting thing to watch according to Alister, who says the size of the building now dwarfs the old building where the canteen is located. Being able to have his weekends back over the winter period is just one of the reasons Alister has decided to step down from his roll. He’s now hoping he will have a bit more time to himself. “We have three grandchildren in Christchurch and it’ll probably give me a bit more time to pop down there for a weekend to see them.” Alister says he will be sad to leave the canteen. “I will miss it; I’m not leaving because I find anything wrong with the job. I’ll hopefully come along and at least have lunch upstairs sometimes.” There have been a number of interesting characters over the years according to Alister, including one of the smaller customers who had issues with volume control. “I remember one little fella that used to yell, he didn’t really yell at me he just yelled when he was ordering things, I guess he did annoy me but I didn’t say anything because he was a customer and then I thought at home he probably had to yell to make himself heard, so that gave me a different perspective.” Alister has served thousands of netball players and their families over the years and he says it is this, the interaction with the community, that he will miss the most.

diary

• The Santa Regina resumed her regular calls, six container vessels, a car carrier, two log ships, a bulk carrier to anchor, a tanker, nine large fishing vessels, a fruit ship, all kept the port busy during the week. • Where some of the local rules come from: Maritime Rules Part 91. (Google Search and you shall soon find them). Part 91 continues the basic navigation safety rules contained in the Water Recreation Regulations, 1974, with some modifications and additions to bring the requirements up-to-date with modern boating conditions and safety expectations. • Part 91 also modifies and carries over some provisions from the General Harbour (Nautical and Miscellaneous) Regulations 1968 in respect of anchoring and mooring, give way rules, wakes, and proximity to oil tankers and ships carrying dangerous goods. • Part 91 sets basic national navigation standards. These standards may be enforced locally by Regional Councils through consistent bylaws made under the Local Government Act 1974. Regional variation is permitted in the navigation safety bylaws through mechanisms prescribed in Part 91. Please read the whole rule if there is any doubt. If in doubt – don’t go out Dave Duncan, Harbour Master/Marine Operations Manager.

The city’s Riverside Pool is closed due to a significant electrical fault and is unlikely to open before Wednesday. The Riverside Pool and Fitness Centre on Riverside Drive, operates seven days a week and is owned by the Nelson City Council but managed under contract by Community Leisure Management. Council’s executive manager network services, Alec Louverdis, says the fault was identified on Saturday afternoon but the pool temperature and chlorine levels were sufficient to allow the pool to

stay open until the normal closing time. “The fault was caused by the failure of the three phase switch that supplies the facility and may have been contributed to by the recent storms. The parts necessary to repair the system are on their way from Christchurch but it’s unlikely all repairs will be completed, and water temperature sufficient to open the pool before Wednesday morning.” Council apologises to those customers who may have been inconvenienced by this unexpected closure.

SPORT 14 year-old scores on Chatham Cup debut Phillip Rollo He may be a small boy, but Ross McPhie’s goalscoring debut shows he certainly has a big future ahead. The creative midfielder continues his rapid rise in local football as he netted for AMI Nelson Suburbs in its 4-1 Chatham Cup victory over FC Nelson, a special moment for the 14 yearold debutant who continues to prove size is no barrier in football. With four players unavailable, Nelson Suburbs coach, John Slotemaker, put his faith in the youngest members of the club, meaning the Nelson Pine Industries first division standout received his first call up alongside the Mainland Premier League squad. Ross was substituted on in the 70th minute and showed his class from the get-go, linking well with fellow debutant Cory Brown, 15. He receives applause nearly every time he plays, but Ross received the biggest applause of his career ten minutes later. Some quick jinks at the left post beat his man before smashing the ball in to the right hand corner. “It was big experience for me being named in the team and then coming on as well. Just before I came on I was really nervous but then you kind of just get in to it and it’s alright.” Ross says. “But to put away the goal was pretty good.” Even at his tender age, John says there is “no doubt” Ross is the next star to come out of Nelson football, comparing him to former All White Keith MacKay, due to his stature. “He’s very small but technically he’s very good. He’s going to be a very good footballer. I think he showed, the way he put away his goal, that he certainly has the ability.” Ross is “lightyears” ahead of footballers his own age according to his coach, but the Nelson College year ten student says it has been a “tough challenge” stepping up to first division and then Chatham Cup in the same year. “But it feels pretty amazing. The guys are really supportive and help you along.” Ross is an obvious choice for Dave Shaw’s Nelson College first XI when national secondary school qualifying begins later in the month, although he played down his cards of selection. His next target will be making his Mainland Premier League debut for the side. “I’m trying hard but I’m having fun.” Nelson Suburbs will face rivals Richmond AthLETS CELEBRATE: Nelson Suburbs veteran Matt Ayloff carries 14 yearletic, who beat Marlborough Mariners 5-2, in old Ross McPhie back to half way after the youngester scored for Suburbs the next round of the 84th year of the Chatham in its Chatham Cup win over FC Nelson on Saturday.

IN BRIEF BASkETBAll: Fico Finance Nelson Giants couldn’t hold on to a late comeback against the Manawatu Jets on Friday night, going down 95-94. The entertaining clash went right down to the wire after some clutch Phill Jones three pointers gave the Giants the lead for the first time, late in the fourth quarter. But Darryl Dora’s missed free throws were a giant slip up, with Phill and birthday boy Mika Vukona unable to save them at the death. The Giants take on the Saints in Wellington on Thursday. RUgBY: Nayland College first XV put in a strong first half performance against St Thomas College of Canterbury on Saturday, despite their eventual 60-3 defeat. Nayland College was trailing 14-3 at halftime, still well in the contest. Patrick TafiliReid came close to scoring its first try of the Press Cup only to be brought down inches away from the line.

Nayland College A scores crucial win Carol Cook

HOCKEY’S A HIT: Enner Glynn School hockey players Jake Banks, Oliver Merritt, Cadin Stroud, Zion Nicoll, Harrison Trowbridge, Jordan Newsome, George Palmer, Ben Metcalfe, Thomas Gregory, Leon NicolsCruso Jones, Josiah Lander, Brodie Morrison, Olivia Daniel, Mitchell Bridge, Fiona Brady, Emily Rushbrooke, Jake Hall, Cameron Maye and James Barron are ready to compete against Nelson’s top primary schools at Saxton Field hockey turf today. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

After a slow start and down by 9 – 14 at the major break, Nayland College A came alive in the third quarter to outscore Richmond Wakatu Hotel B 10-5 and level the score at 19 all. Nayland’s Olivia Clarke swapped her goal defence bib of last week to goal attack and did a fine job of complementing shooter Deanna Hunt. Wing defence, Ashley Snape toiled to apply pressure on the outside of the circle while young circle defender, Sarah Reidie scrapped for everything while pulling in numerous rebounds to deny the second opportunity. A couple of unforced errors by the less experienced college girls gave Richmond the crucial turnovers which were converted to take the game 28–25. In the Collegiate 1 game Nelson College 9A had a tough assignment when they met the well polished Waimea College 9A side. Nelson had limited preparation and the new combinations took time to settle, however coach Penny Sue Franklin said her girls tried hard against the tight defence of Waimea. Nelson created turnovers however the attacks needed to have more confidence to let the ball go.

Goal attack, Abbey Franklin took on a hefty load of court work and shot well given her limited opportunities. Merekara McGuinnietty was a demon in the mid court while Mikaela Collier had her work cut out as she worked to contain the classy Waimea shooters. Waimea recorded a 38–14 win. Waimea Intermediate 8A was too strong for Nelson Prep Gold in the Junior 1 grade, running out winners 41–11. The Waimea team has the benefit of having the majority of last year’s 7A while Nelson Prep are still working on their combinations. Abbey Munro put in a “player of the day” performance, firstly at goal attack and in the final quarter in the unaccustomed position of wing attack which she handled with aplomb. Goal defence, Olivia Denis put in a fine performance in the first half before racing off to play her hockey game while centre, Emily Mills proved to be an effective link through court. UMPIRING APPOINTMENTS Four Nelson Centre umpires - Mary Ellis, Kate Smith, Marie Smith and Deb Vincent have been appointed to umpire at the New Zealand Age Group Tournament to be held in Nelson in July.

The great escape A pulsating finish capped off one of the greatest matches in Press Cup history. The fairytale script couldn’t have been written any better as Nelson College first XV stole the match at the death to win 20-16 against fierce rivals Waimea College first XV, although Waimea College will feel robbed with a dubious second half try awarded to Kasi Sami despite suggestions of a knock-on over the chalk.

Nelson may have used their get out of jail free card, it was a comeback for the ages, coming from 13-5 down in the final eight minutes to snatch glory. Mitchell Drummond, who had left his kicking boots at home, went from zero to hero as he sped in between the two posts to deny Waimea of a famous victory and kept the home side’s 2011 unbeaten record intact.

Stoke Reds go for gold with first win of the season Stoke Reds were the toast of the club on Saturday, picking up their innaugral win of the year. Two early tries paved the way for Tahunanui Super Liqour Stoke Reds as they held on 3812 against Moteuka United at Greenmeadows. Nathan Gibson was a standout on the park as Stoke Reds played some enterprising rugby in much better conditions than last weekend’s downpour at Jubilee Park. A wee lull in concentration part way through the game saw Motueka come back with a couple of good tries, but a strong Stoke Reds forward pack saw then ease to victory. Stoke Reds play Marist at the Tahunanui Playing Fields this Saturday. Accesman Stoke didn’t fair to well on the scoreboard going down 40-10 to championship leaders Wakatu Marist. Stoke shuffled the starting XV hoping to knock over the high flying greens. But even with quarter of the game played against 14

men, Stoke struggled to score points. Jack Umaga, playing in the playmaker role, was a standout alongside the hardworking lock, Stu Tunncliff, and flanker Tevita Koloamatangi. An early try to Marist’s number eight Mark Bright gave the away side plenty of momentum early, but it was a second half flourish that saw them home. Stoke midfielder Sione Holani scored a consilation try in the final minutes, but it was too little too late. Shaun Begg scored a penalty before the halftime break. Stoke’s Divison 2 side will be hoping their home crowd advantage will see them home this week after two defeats on the run have left the injury depleted side in a rut. Stoke made the long trip to Murchison on the weekend with only two reserves, but it wasn’t long before they were called upon through injury. They lost 41-0. The team’s three MVP points for the weekend went to hooker Max Glossop. Brett Dickens and James Mason were second and third.
