Residents angry at proposed Mangawhai land sales u by Colin Patterson
Mangawhai residents say they will fight proposals from the Kaipara District Council to sell a number of blocks of land in their town.
Global bank to open Dargaville branch
It is the world’s leading specialist bank and one of New Zealand’s largest rural financial institutions …
The council’s draft Annual plan says it has ‘identified a number of nonstrategic council owned properties that could be sold. By non-strategic we mean property that has no current or future plans for public use. This would free up money to repay the debt and invest in community infrastructure’.
The document says most of the sites are in the Mangawhai Heads area and includes residential land in Eveline St, Robert St, Fagan Pl and Almar Cres. But local residents say these sites are used by the public and if they are sold access to the foreshore could be threatened.
Some of the sites are near the Mangawhai Fishing and Boating Club. President Buck Buchanan says the club opposes the sale of land close to the fishing club and above the boat ramp. “It is used by the public. Go down there at Easter. continued on page 5 …
“It’s all about their call out service for us, and it’s faultless. Along with competitive prices we find the staff friendly, efficient and great people to deal with which in turn helps our company to run more profitably. Thanks!” Scott Taylor, TSH Agricultural Contracting TANGITERORIA.

p Pahi Regatta Club stalwart Justin Healey was among the successful anglers at the club’s newly introduced fishing contest last weekend. The event attracted some 50 fishers from around the Kaipara, with some good catches weighed in. Justin’s 5.3kg snapper took out second prize for the species. Fine weather saw boats range over a wide area of the harbour as well as the Graveyard off Pouto.
Teens Walk for Life
The Monuments Men
The biblical epic comes to life in this gritty interpretation of Noah’s story - the holy man who built an ark to survive God’s punishment of a sinful world. Though the subject material is familiar to almost all who have ever opened a Bible, this retelling adds a new dimension through its sometimes controversial portrayal of the ancient Jewish patriarch and his family.
A World War Two action romp with a twist of comedy, in the style of Hogan’s Heroes, following a crack team of... art historians? Yes, that’s right - the men who are sent in to reclaim the stolen art treasures of Hitler’s Third Reich, portrayed by the best actors of their generation, and supplied with a script that’s weapons-grade clever and funny.
Feisty parrot Blu goes from the streets of Rio to the deepest jungles of the Amazon on a mission to face his fears... and meet his inlaws! Join Blu, Jewel and their three kids on an epic adventure into the wilderness, with plenty of laughs and excitement for young and old.
Futuristic sci-fi action in the same vein as the best-selling Hunger Games series another adaptation of a trilogy of novels set in a dystopian future, where the overthrow of a corrupt ruling order falls to some specially talented, tough and resourceful young freedom fighters.
Muppets Most Wanted
The Selfish Giant
When a wicked Kermit the Frog lookalike perpetrates a big jewel heist, the real Kermit and his troupe of entertainers are dragged into a madcap chase across Europe. Will the famous green entertainer, Miss Piggy, Animal, Gonzo and the gang unmask the real criminals and save the day?
Two teenage boys who have been excluded from school team up to collect scrap metal for an eccentric local, using his horse and cart to help turn trash into cash. But their friendship is fraught with tension, and events culminate in a tragedy which changes the lives of all three forever.
The Lego Movie
A story with blocks that rocks! When an evil super-genius plans to super-glue the lego universe into permanent stasis, it’s up to an ordinary construction worker to save the day. Featuring a cast of oneinch superheroes and enough plastic bricks to build an entire city, this is great fun for anyone who has ever owned the iconic Danish construction set.
This much-awaited film is the first fully Saudi Arabian feature film ever, and surprisingly for this very orthodox nation it has been directed by a woman, the talented Haifaa Al Monsour. See what the international cinema establishment is raving about as this beautiful and artistically composed tale unfolds.
p A group of 20 Otamatea High School students raised more than $2,000 for the Cancer Society by walking for a whole day. They walked around the Maungaturoto Country Club from 5pm on Friday April 4 to 5pm on Saturday. Parents, staff and fellow students came along to support them through the wee small hours. Around midnight the walkers put on pyjamas, even though there were no warm beds for them to climb into. By 5pm there were lots of blisters and sore feet. But the result made all the pain worth it.
Cody’s a winner! The winner of our big hamper draw this year is Cody Preston, who visited all of the stores featured, in person to collect the words needed to enter. With a vast array of prizes in the hamper, we’re sure Cody is happy to share some of them (like the sparkling wine pictured here) with his parents and siblings. The young winner was most impressed with the Fox branded cap donated to our hamper by Dargaville Honda — he’s a big fan of extreme MX who now looks the part! Congratulations!

A Gallipoli journey in store

p Heidi Holden (right) was the inspiration behind Small Poppies dress-up fundraiser for the Child Cancer Foundation. She is pictured here with her twin, Bella
In a show of support for Heidi Holden, who was diagnosed with cancer in March last year, the Early Childhood Education Centre got in touch with Kaiwaka Primary School and Kaiwaka Playcentre and arranged a special fundraising day. “The Small Poppies children got dressed up and, with the help of parents, we walked up to Kaiwaka Primary School
and all the children paraded their costumes. Everyone made a gold coin donation and we had a coin trail and sausage sizzle,” said Small Poppies director, Natasha Lee. “Afterwards, two volunteers and Small Poppies’ John Lee, sold the leftover sausages outside the Four Square and all up, we raised $1,085.95 for the Child Cancer Foundation.” ¢
Annual Plan hearings u by Colin Patterson
Kaipara District Council’s draft Annual Plan has attracted more than 530 submissions. Many of the submissions come from Mangawhai residents opposing plans to sell surplus land in their town and questioning the council’s focus on debt reduction. The three Kaipara commissioners are holding public hearings, giving submitters who request it a chance to present their views in person.
Hearings have been scheduled for Maungaturoto on April 28, Dargaville on April 29 and Mangawhai on April 30. The commissioners will meet on May 27 to consider all submissions and make decisions. The Annual Plan will be formally adopted before the end of the financial year on June 30.

Dalmatian Day at Dargaville Museum u by Colin Patterson
Dargaville’s Dalmatian Social Club has joined forces with the local museum in a fundraiser for the two organisations. They are combining to hold a Dalmatian Day at the Dargaville Museum on Saturday April 26. The day celebrates the heritage and culture of families from Slavic nations and their contribution to the Northern Wairoa. Social club secretary Lyn Curac says the day includes spit roast lambs, and lunch. There will also be gum scraping and a billy of tea. The Auckland Dalmatian Dancers will perform along with an orchestra. Ms Curac says the museum will be running a sausage sizzle during the event. “We’re aiming for a picnic atmosphere. We also encourage people to bring their own sustenance, especially for children.” She says this the third year the two groups have combined for the event. ‘We’re hoping for visitors from Kaitaia, Whangarei and other places.” Funds raised for the social club will go to its roof replacement project. Its headquarters on Normanby Street needs a new roof, which Ms Curac says could cost the club up to $20,000. The event runs from 9.30am to 4pm. Admission is $5 for adults, with children free.
Academy teaches building and life skills u by Colin Patterson
An academy at Dargaville High School has helped more than 20 youngsters gain jobs in the building industry since it was set up three years ago. The building academy at Dargaville High School is led by Tim Pratt, a registered builder who now spends his time imparting his skills and knowledge to the high school’s senior students who are looking for a career in the building industry. He says the academy was an initiative of principal David Bargh. “He wanted to give guys an alternative, especially students who were not academically included but are hands on.” Its students are all year 12 and 13. They obtain NZQA credits and do unit standards. Mr Pratt says the academy has proved a big success in getting p Dargaville High Building Academy student Quinn Faulkner operates a compound mitre saw school leavers into jobs. “In the first three years the academy had 25 half the theory for the Building and Construction ITO students.

Residents angry at proposed Mangawhai land sales “Even on an average day there are quite a few boat trailers. If those sections are sold there is nowhere for boat trailers to park. It’ll be real bad over summer for general parking.” Mangawhai Ratepayers and Residents Association chairman Bruce Rogan says if the council proceeds with its plans ‘there’ll be something close to a revolution’. He says the council is punishing the Mangawhai community for its legal challenge to rates set to pay for the EcoCare sewerage scheme. “They’re trying to sell the foreshore and part of the camping ground. But it’s not the council’s land. It belongs p Signs like this one opposing the proposed land sell off have gone up to the community.” in Mangawhai Mr Rogan says the council should wait for the High Court’s decision before making any decisions on selling land. Chief commissioner John Robertson says the commissioners will take close note of submissions before making final decisions. “At the moment we are consulting on the principle of selling non-strategic land. I don’t think we are going to move in any extreme way on this.” Mr Robertson says selling land could benefit the Mangawhai community. “If we can apply public funds to something that is of public benefit, I think that’s a good thing. There is demand for more community facilities in Mangawhai.” ¢
Global bank to open Dargaville branch u by Joanne Speechly
It is the world’s leading specialist food and agribusiness bank and one of New Zealand’s largest rural financial institutions and now Rabobank is establishing its second branch north of Auckland in Dargaville.
p An artists impression of Rabobank Dargaville
Whangarei branch manager, Tessa Sutherland, will manage both Northland branches following the opening of the Dargaville site and anticipates that Rabobank will take over the lease of their new, purpose-built premises in September this year. “The move to open a second branch in Dargaville has been a little while in the making because we wanted to find the appropriate location,” says Tessa of the new Rabobank site, which is located opposite the veterinary clinic on Normanby Street. “Ultimately however, it comes on the back of our substantial growth in Northland — a large proportion of which, is coming out of the greater Kaipara region. As a bank with a rural focus, we want to show our support for rural clients by going into their towns and this supports our long term view of remaining a leader in the rural sector.”
Rabobank is among the world’s 30 largest financial institutions and one of Australasia’s largest rural lenders. It plays an integral part in and is a significant provider of corporate financial services to the food and agribusiness sectors in New Zealand and Australia. The global leader began as a rural credit cooperative in the Netherlands in 1898 and began to expand its international activities in 1980. In October of 1994, Rabobank purchased the New Zealand and Australian operations of Primary Industry Bank of Australia (PIBA) and in 1997, it purchased Wrightson Farmers Finance Limited. Rabobank’s Dargaville branch will initially employ five full-time staff. The opening of the branch will take Rabobank branch numbers to 33 nationwide. ¢

Hunters prepare for waterfowl season
Mangawhai’s big Easter fishing competition
The 2014 game bird hunting season is just around the corner with opening weekend on May 3 and 4.
Mangawhai Boating and Fishing Club are busy organising their big Easter Fishing Competition for Saturday, April 19.
There is a combined limit with mallard, grey duck, and shoveler (no more than three shoveler) of 15 ducks, with the season ending on June 29. Paradise shelduck and black swan seasons continue until the August 3. Paradise shelduck daily bag limit is 20 birds. The cock pheasant and quail season, north of the Maungataniwha Range also known as the Maungamukas continues until the August 3 with a daily bag limit of three birds. For both brown and Californian quail north of the Maungamukas the season has been shortened by one month and will also close on August 3. South of these ranges to the regional boundary near Wellsford the season continues for the upland game species for a further three weeks until August 31. The daily bag limit is five cock pheasants and 10 Californian quail and 10 brown quail. The pukeko season for the whole of the region will go through to August 31. Remember that when hunting waterfowl, non-toxic shot is required (except sub gauges) when shooting over open water.

The generous prize package means that there will be
wife/husband and one son or daughter to hunt on their property without a hunting licence. Many landowners do not realise that the act only allows for these three people to hunt without a licence and all other family members are required to hold a game bird hunting licence.

Winter Warm Up Some like it hot
One thing you really need to maintain a happy and healthy home is a good supply of hot water.
do six people want to shower in the morning? How much are you paying now? Your hot water may be detailed separately on your bill. Information is the key to efficient energy use. A 21st century option for domestic water heating is the sun. Solar water heating uses the sun’s rays collected by photo-voltaic panels mounted on the roof, or in such a location to face the maximum sunlight, to heat water, which is then stored in an insulated hot water tank. On a less sunny day, the system may need back-up heating, usually provided by electricity or gas. Well-designed and installed solar water heating systems
will meet 50–75% of your hot water needs using the sun’s free energy. Keep in mind that the upfront cost is high compared to other hot water systems. Not all properties are suitable for solar water heating — check with your supplier to find out. If you intend to use an electric backup, check with your electricity retailer to see if a cheaper night-rate electricity tariff is available. If you are going to use night rate electric back-up make sure you get a large enough storage tank. As energy concerns become more evident, the use of ‘green power’, either solar or wind, is catching on. ¢
SEASONS ARE CHANGING, TEMPERATURES ARE DROPPING
Your hot water system needs to be able to provide for your entire household, but that doesn’t have to mean compromising on efficiency. There’s a range of options available to suit every household’s needs. Water heating systems tend to either be the traditional hot water cylinder or continuous flow systems which heat water directly as it runs through it, rather than storing the water. Some methods are more efficient than others.
Winter is coming!
Knowing how your household uses hot water will help you make better choices about getting the best energy efficiency, value for money, and experience — ask yourself the following questions when you’re looking at a new hot water system. How big is your household? How many people live in your house now, and how many might there be in the future? How and when you use hot water? Do you need a lot at once? For example,

on internal walls for these reasons. And all — no matter how the tubing was run — produced some residue of mouldinducing dampness in the laundry room. Condenser dryers tackle the problem by collecting this moisture internally, in a reservoir which can be easily emptied later, even into potted plants or onto the garden. This safe condensate is pure water, after all. Heat pump condenser dryers perform the same trick, but instead of using costly heating elements, they utilise the same more efficient technology as an air conditioning heat pump, slashing power costs. Dryer safety tips The leading cause of home clothes dryer and washer fires is failure to clean them. Have your dryer installed and serviced by a professional. Do not use the dryer without a lint filter. Make sure you clean the lint filter before or after each load of laundry.
But when winter comes knocking it’s often technology which comes to the rescue, in the form of the family clothes dryer. These machines have been around for over three quarters of a century now, and improvements have stacked up over the years, from initial crude, supersized ‘trouser ovens’ (as one American wit dubbed them) to the streamlined modern machines of today. Now one of the last issues most householders have with the indoor clothes dryer has been whisked away — with new condenser dryers and heat pump condenser dryers there is no plume of steam to contend with. Older dryers had to be ducted manually through a window via a large tube, or required expensive in-roof ducting to be installed. Some could never be situated

Classic status well deserved u by Andy Bryenton
The 2014 Hilux is well and truly here, and many fans of the evergreen utility favourite may be wondering where the bells, whistles, smoke and mirrors are going to pop out from.
Precautionary recall rolls out Toyota New Zealand have reaffirmed their commitment to customers as their staff work through an international precautionary recall affecting a small selection of their 2004–2013 model range. The global auto giant has confirmed that this recall, which includes such popular New Zealand favourites as the Yaris and the RAV4, is purely precautionary in nature, as none of the issues raised has led to a single incident or accident, anywhere in the world. The replacement of parts due to the recall will be undertaken by Toyota free of charge, enabling their customers to continue enjoying their vehicles with full confidence. Affected models are the RAV4, Prado and Hilux
produced between June 2004 and December 2010, the Yaris produced between January 2005 and August 2010, and imported Vitz, Ist, Belta and Ractis vehicles from a similar time period. Toyota New Zealand are taking exemplary measures to contact all affected customers and make arrangements for a remedy. However, anyone concerned about their vehicle can contact Toyota New Zealand on 0800 TOYOTA for further information.

p The 2014 Toyota Hilux — a family car/workman’s mate crossover
Toyota aren’t here to reinvent the wheel this year, however — the Hilux for today is a fettled and sharpened version of the Hilux of ’13, not the game changer which Toyota’s skunk-works engineers are currently still working on for two years down the track. So, like an ageing rocker, the ute which still commands a hefty slice of both market share and genuine Kiwi affection takes to the stage with an artful facelift, a bit of new technology, and — most importantly — the chops to put newcomers in their place. The Hilux is ageing better than many of its contemporaries in the ute world — it rides with aplomb, pulls off the family car/workman’s mate crossover with consummate skill, and at the top of the utility tree it’s still going head to head with the phenomenon which is the Ford Ranger. What this new look 2014 package really offers (apart from a useful reversing camera, which is a handy addition) is a look at just how far ahead of the curve the Toyota was when it was an all-new model. Jump behind the wheel today and you’ll find it comfortable and competent, a proper contender with the pricier VW Amarok and the aforementioned Ranger. There’s plenty of power from that three litre turbo diesel, even if it isn’t a new unit, and a level of ride and refinement which should satisfy the modern demand for a vehicle that carts

fence posts Monday to Friday and can take the family to church on Sunday. There’s even the welcome return of Toyota’s 6-cylinder petrol 4-litre to the lineup, the perfect mate for a new five-speed manual box if you want chop-down passing power and towing grunt. A good time then, to reflect on how the Kiwi ute has changed over the years. And the Hilux is the perfect place from which to do so, because — and this is the important part — nearly every one of us has driven, owned or at least been a passenger in something with the Hilux badge at some point. Take that memory, and recall it as you try out 2014’s iteration. The Toyota’s new, grown-up sensibilities won’t be growing old with the New Zealand public any time soon. ¢

Last year’s inaugural Aratapu Arts Festival was a great success, with artists and patrons travelling from all over the Kaipara to check out the cultural smorgasbord on offer — as well as the noteworthy hospitality of the little tavern at the gateway to the Pouto peninsula. Mixed media is once again the order of the day as Donice and Richard gear up for the second yearly Arts Fest — because this is not just a show for painters and sculptors. The day promises
a veritable feast for the senses with everything from traditional canvases to poetry, music, crafts and song. Meanwhile, there’s more artistry going on in the kitchen, as the Aratapu

With the weather turning colder, many restaurants are re-inventing their menus for winter, bringing out warming and comforting dishes to ease into the chilly months of the year. (as well as Chinese turnip and soft rice noodles). Entree #2 — Vietnamese spring rolls In lieu of dessert after the meal, we opted for another snack-sized addition to the menu — Vietnamese style spring rolls. Anyone who has never had these before should definitely give them a try. Wrapped in rice ‘tortillas’ which are so thin as to be transparent, these little bundles of meat and crunchy fresh vegetables are the south-east Asian equivalent of sushi. Less carbs, too — and with the option of either the clean, crisp taste of bean sprouts and seafood or spicy chicken,

But the changes afoot at Dargaville’s Raan A Haan Thai Aroi Dee restaurant are a little different from most, and hinge upon new ingredients and spices, sourced during the proprietors’ recent trip to Auckland for Thai new year celebrations. We tried a selection of dishes from their winter selection. Entree — Rice noodle soup with chicken and vegetables. This arrived piping hot and absolutely stuffed full of fresh green veg and a generous helping of tender chicken pieces. The soup itself is not like a thick, European-style broth — it is light yet flavourful, taking up the essence of the chicken and all those exotic greens

Reserve Management Plan for Northern Wairoa Memorial Park, Dargaville Kaipara District Council intends to develop a Reserve Management Plan for the Northern Wairoa Memorial Park, Dargaville. This Park was established in 1919 as a memorial to the many athletic young men of this area who were killed in the Great War. Development of the Plan is a requirement under section 41 of the Reserves Act 1977. It is also considered necessary due to the significance of the Park as a ‘Key’ reserve in Kaipara’s Reserves and Open Spaces Strategy. Council would appreciate your views on the Reserve Management Plan. The Plan will outline how the Northern Wairoa Memorial Park is managed and what kinds of activities are allowed there. Council will consider your views when drafting the Reserve Management Plan. Once the draft Reserve Management Plan is ready, it will be made available for the public to review and there will be an opportunity for submissions to be made, including hearings, before a final Reserve Management Plan is adopted. Please submit any comments you may have on the Northern Wairoa Memorial Park Reserve Management Plan to Council via Council’s website www.kaipara.govt.nz or post to:
