Breakfast boosts building fund

p This week has seen the Kaipara region, and especially the west coast treated to the sight of some spectacular sunsets. According to meteorologists, these have been caused by particles of smoke and ash in the high atmosphere, blown across the Tasman from the bushfires, which have ravaged parts of Australia in recent weeks. The remnant of ‘flammagenitus’ or ‘pyrocumulus’ cloud formations, which can form over large fires or volcanoes. This mix of water vapour and smoke particles catches the rays of the setting sun, causing a dramatic red display. Ironically, particles such as these can become the ‘seeds’ of rain clouds, causing thunderstorms far from the fire that created them, even as firefighters wish for rain where they are battling the blaze.

Mayor backs Northport proposal

Council changes ‘streamline’ governance u by Paul Campbell

Kaipara District Council has adopted a new committee structure, with a focus on collaboration and using the skills of elected members coupled with community representation from the four council wards. At the same time remuneration for the mayor, deputy mayor and councillors have been confirmed.

p An aerial view of Northport at present

“The announcement of the Royal NZ Navy proposing relocating its dry dock to Northport, plus the idea of relocating the port freight terminal from Auckland, is a once-in-150-year shift in New Zealand. It’s all to Kaipara’s benefit,” said Dr Smith. “I welcome the news the port relocation is being considered seriously and support the intention to relocate industrial port facilities from Auckland to Northport. A glance at any map shows Kaipara is in the ‘sweet spot’ and we need to leverage this advantage to make the mighty Kaipara really hum.” Dr Smith added that government is already committing $95 million investment in rail between Auckland and Whangarei, with most of that going through Kaipara District. “If industrial port activities were to be at Northport, then we should reasonably expect a four-lane road connecting that port with other regions via Auckland. We may also see an improvement in coastal shipping and possibly passenger sea transport too. “Removing the geographic bottleneck of Auckland from the transport of people and goods between Northland and the rest of New Zealand would be a

considerable advancement for Kaipara people. Kaipara District Council has already started preparing for significant population growth with its current spatial planning project, which will help inform the next District Plan. Many from the community are having their say on this work at present, so KDC is actively working on growth strategies. “When I was elected mayor in 2018 I talked about the need to get right our development potential, the four-lane road, the rail, Kaipara’s place in ‘the golden diamond’ of fast-growing regions around Auckland. I’ve established a new committee at KDC called the Kaipara Horizons Committee, which has a single focus on large subjects, which are ‘on the horizon’ but may currently appear small because they are some way away. “That committee will keep a watching brief on Northport proposals and share them with the community as we prepare for the future.” Nor thland Regional Council’s new chair, and Kaipara constituency councillor, Penny Smart, will host the December 9 meeting and says a port relocation would bring strong economic benefit for the region. ¢

Dargaville Businesses Network Meeting Kaipara District Council extends an invite to the business owners of Dargaville to come along and join fellow business owners, Council staff and elected members of Council to network and share information. Where: Northern Wairoa Hotel Restaurant Date: Thursday, 12 December 2019 Time: 3pm - 4:30pm Finger food will be provided. Please RSVP by 29 November 2019 for catering and seating purposes. Please advise if you have any dietary requirements.

Mayor Jason Smith, says each of the wards should be represented on the major committees, particularly for the district’s three priority parks. “We have a representative range of views from people across the district,” says Dr Smith. “Community representation has also been cemented in the committees to make sure we include the perspectives of iwi partners, other councils and other groups within the community. We want to draw on the strengths, talents and experience that sits within these groups and focus on making good decisions. “Long term issues and planning will be considered by the newly established Kaipara Horizons Committee. “Some of these issues can appear distant and small at first, but these can be things that will likely become significant as they draw nearer. They would cover things like the Kaipara

Moana Treaty Settlement, climate change ideas, future sea-level risks, and so on. This committee will bring these matters together and refer them to the full council for decisions.” Several grants and awards committees have been amalgamated to help streamline governance efforts. The whole council will continue to work on regulatory matters and make decisions. At the same meeting, remuneration was discussed for elected members. The mayor’s salary is established by the Remuneration Authority at $119,000. The deputy mayor will receive a base annual payment of $55,000, for leadership and assisting with the duties and responsibilities of the mayor. Councillors will all receive a flat $43,489, reflecting the evenly shared committee workload. The full list of committee appointments is at kaipara.govt.nz.

Police appeal Dargaville Police is renewing appeals to the public for information following an investigation into an aggravated robbery incident in September last year. On Wednesday, September 18 2018, a male victim was injured in an unprovoked attack, which took place around 10.30pm in the middle of a local road. The exact location is unknown, but the assault took place between Plunket Street and Awakino Street in Dargaville. The victim was driving his vehicle, a distinctive orange/copper metallic coloured Lexus IS200 saloon, this style of vehicle is also badged as a Toyota Altezza, between these two locations when he had stopped his car to remove a stereo that was located in the middle of the road. A male offender had approached the vehicle, yelled at the victim, reached into the car and removed the keys. The victim was then dragged out of the car and was hit on the head and knocked unconscious. Another person (a female) was believed to be with the male offender. The offenders stole the vehicle, and it was subsequently

crashed at the eastern end of Victoria Street, Dargaville a short time later. The offenders then fled the scene. The police have followed lines of enquiry in relation to this matter, but unfortunately the identity of those involved remains unknown, says Detective Andrew Bailey. He adds that police urge those with information about this matter to come forward. “We know that there are people out there with information about this cowardly attack. Relationships and allegiances change over time, and our message to anyone with information about the identity of those involved is that you need to do the right thing and come forward to police.” Anyone who has information about this incident is asked to contact Detective Andrew Bailey from Dargaville Police on 021 191 5765 or Detective Kyle Dalbeth on 021 191 2075. You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Whanau day a tradition of thanks u by Andy Bryenton

This weekend hundreds of families will gather in Dargaville’s Selwyn Park to take part in Saturday’s Silver Fern Farms Community Whanau Day. This year’s event promises to be the biggest ever, but it’s an evolution of an idea, which has been years in the making.

p Family fun and a way to engage with the community come together at Silver Fern Farms’ Community Whanau Day, a free event this Saturday in Dargaville

Silver Fern Farms’ plant manager Lance Warmington explains that the concept for the very first community whanau day came from a wish to express some gratitude to a close-knit and hard-working team. “It really came from the company wanting to appreciate our most valued asset, our people,” he says. “Our staff and their whanau are integral to our operations, and we wanted to say thanks not just to those who work on-site with us, but to their families too.” What began as a simple barbecue celebration at the end of the year grew through the early 2010s, with the assistance of Sport Northland, who added games and sports to the day, then the addition of music and entertainment. In late 2018 Lance says Silver Fern Farms was pleased to get involved

with the Tamariki Collective, a group of like-minded civic, governmental and business organisations aiming to provide family fun and bonding experiences for locals. The partnership between Silver Fern Farms and the community is extremely important, so the decision was made to open up the Silver Fern Farms Community Whanau Day as a fully inclusive day of celebration. “It’s a big day, with so many things to organise,” says Lance. “We simply couldn’t do it on this scale without the assistance of everyone involved.” With the Tamariki Collective’s skills and resources assisting Silver Fern Farms, this Saturday’s event, which begins at noon in Selwyn Park, takes a gesture of gratitude and extends it to the whole community. ¢

Double blow for school u by Paul Campbell

Paparoa Primary School’s equipment shed has been burgled for the second time this year, with thieves making off with essential maintenance gear that had been bought to replace what was taken in the first break-in. “It was devastating news to receive when staff arrived on Monday morning, that for the second time this year we have had our lawnmower, weed eater and this time our new chainsaw stolen,” says school principal, Simon Schuster. The first raid was carried out in March, and the latest burglary was on the weekend of November 23–24. “Schools are underfunded as it is, and finding the money for the insurance excess is a significant chunk of our annual property maintenance budget,” said Mr Schuster. “It was our athletics day that Monday and children were p Disappointed burglary victims Paparoa Primary School pupils (left to right) Kaden Naylor, Solomon Schuster saddened to see staff yet again and Billy Holcroft with principal Simon Schuster recording what was stolen, finding new ways to secure the shed facilities such as the school pool, bike and then having the police coming in to track, scooter track, cooking facilities, inspect the site.” vegetable gardens and school orchard.

Healthy Northpower distribution u by Andy Bryenton

Northpower electricity consumers will receive a discount, which could well be in the hundreds of dollars this December, a healthy increase of the distribution to consumers offered in 2018. This year’s distribution totals around $10.2 million, thanks to Northpower and the Northpower Trust. According to their calculations, most residential and business electricity customers connected to Northpower’s network will benefit from a discount of $220.80 (including GST) in December 2019. The only exception to this will be those using less than 2,000 kWh a year, who will receive a discount of $63.25 inc GST. “We’ve lifted the amount and locked it in earlier this year so that our customers know what to expect. It’s all part of work underway to make things simple, and lift our contribution locally,” says Northpower chief executive Andrew McLeod, a point backed by Northpower trustees. The discount will be shown as a credit on customers’ December electricity bills. However, some retailers paid earlier than expected, so customers should check their November bill as well. “Northpower is planning to spend over $200m building, maintaining

p As well as distributing more than $10 million in discounts to consumers this year, Northpower has committed a further $200 million to network upgrades and maintenance

and upgrading the Northpower electricity network during the next 10 years. There are currently more than 60,000 electricity connections on the Northpower network,” says Mr McLeod.

Honouring a high-flying hero

New plan

u by Andy Bryenton

Kaipara commercial and recreational fishers say they are being bombarded by government red tape as Fisheries New Zealand begins public consultation on a new Draft National Inshore Finfish Fisheries Plan, which will guide management of the resource for the next five years. The fishers point out that the Threat Management Plan review to protect Hector’s and Maui dolphins was only launched on June 17 this year and submissions closed on August 19 after public meetings were held to discuss the plan from Dargaville in the north to Invercargill in the south. Options within the consultation included increasing the boundaries of marine mammal sanctuaries, extending restrictions on trawling and set netting in areas where the dolphins live. After 13,000 submissions, a ministerial decision on recommendations to protect dolphins is now awaited. A Ruawaibased fisher says he’s “speaking for the locals when I say too much legislation is making this job no fun at all. We are waiting for a decision on dolphins, and now more red tape is coming.” The fisher asked his name to be kept confidential.

“I don’t need the official attention,” he said. In regards to that threat management plan, Fisheries communications advisor Paul Duffin says: “Fisheries New Zealand has provided advice to the Minister of Fisheries. This is under consideration, and final decisions will be announced by ministers in due course.” Director of Fisheries Management, Stuart Anderson says the latest draft plan aims to transform and improve how inshore finfish fisheries are managed, driving innovation and advancing ecosystem-based fisheries management. The consultation documents and information on the process, including deadlines for submissions, can be found on Fisheries New Zealand’s website at fisheries.govt.nz/newsand-resources/consultations/ draft-national-inshore-finfishfisheries-plan/.

Breakfast boosts building fund

Pouto lighthouse erosion threat

u by Paul Campbell

Vehicles including quad bikes are being blamed for sand erosion around the iconic North Head lighthouse at Pouto and visitors to the site are being asked to keep their distance as remedial work is being planned.

Hunger pangs were sated with flair in Maungaturoto last Friday morning, all in the name of dementia unit fundraising, as townsfolk and visitors alike tucked into breakfast fare takeaways and sit-down meals.

p The Rapid Relief Team served more than 500 meals

At the centre of the event was the Rapid Relief Team, formed originally to provide food for workers in the event of a local emergency, which used the fundraising event for the town’s Riverside Rest Home dementia unit to hone its culinary skills. “The Rapid Relief Team was simply magnificent, and served around 450 takeaway breakfast burgers and 80odd sit-down meals, which has boosted the dementia coffers by $8,500,” said fundraising organiser Albie Paton. “There’s more money to come from a

raffle, with tickets still on sale, with some great prizes.” Mr Paton noted that work on the dementia unit build of 14 beds units is now underway, but that fundraising needs to continue into the future to repay bank loans. “We are in the planning stages to take the breakfast event to Mangawhai, and there are other plans too, including a Dahlias for Dementia comprehensive Kaipara gardens tour in February. In the meantime, I have raffle tickets available so give me a call at 027 494 9448.” ¢

Hospital volunteers honoured Historic wharf plans in action

u by Andy Bryenton

Volunteers who give freely of their time to help hospital patients in Dargaville were honoured by the medical administration and the Order of St John last week for their efforts in 2019.

A trust formed in Mangawhai to bring about the construction of a wharf in the seaside town has reached the halfway point in its campaign to raise funds for resource consent.

p The combined volunteer team who serve Dargaville Hospital were honoured with an end-of-year function and praise from administrators and managers

The Dargaville Hospital put on a special function for members of the St John Friends of the Hospital team along with those engaged in chaplaincy services, the non-denominational group who offer spiritual comfort and advice to patients who request it. Hospital spokesperson Jen Thomas praised their dedication and compassion. “We’d like to acknowledge the amazing work that you do in our hospital and our community,” she said, addressing the combined group. “Volunteering is often a difficult task, but it can also be very rewarding. You

are making a positive change for our patients, and we would like to say thank you, and express the greatest gratitude for what you do.” St John instigated Friends of the Hospital approximately a decade ago, while the chaplaincy service evolved from the practice of having a Christian minister on call and went permanent 20 years ago. Further thanks came from the nursing staff, hospital administrators and the team at Dargaville’s drug and alcohol addiction treatment facility, all of whom acknowledged the input of the hospital volunteers. ¢

The Mangawhai historic wharf would be a modern recreation of the structure, which facilitated transport and commerce from colonial times through until the post-war era. Public desire for a new wharf is strong, and supported by many local institutions, clubs and groups, says Mangawhai Historic Wharf Trust chairman Colin Leach. “It’s been discussed by many sectors of the community what a wonderful addition to the town it would be to restore the historic wharf,” he says. “The beginning of the idea came out of the Mangawhai Harbour Restoration Society, who have as one of their aims ‘to restore the historic nature of the harbour’. The original wharf was a big part of early Mangawhai life, and only went out of service at the end of World War ll.” The concept for a new wharf, to be constructed near the historic Mangawhai

Tavern in the village end of town, has been easier to conceive thanks to the existence of detailed hand-drawn plans from the 1920s, outlining a refurbishment of the original wharf from the 1880s. Completed the wharf will stretch 12 metres out into the channel to allow access for tourist boats and anglers. A shelter structure will replicate the old cargo shed, which graced the original wharf, and of course, modern, longer-lasting materials will be used in its manufacture. “We’re rebuilding it for the public to enjoy and use, as well as in its role as a historic landmark,” says Mr Leach. “It will be for kids to swim off, people to fish from, and to promote tourism.” Currently, the trust is raising funds to meet resource consent costs, in preparation for the build.

… Have little fleas upon their backs and so on ad infinitum- or so wrote John Simpson in 1733. While fleas are neither big nor found on the backs of other fleas, they are certainly a BIG problem, feeding voraciously on the blood of cats, dogs and yes, humans. They cause intense scratching and itching. In very young or debilitated animals they cause anaemia that can be life threatening. They can transmit parasites including tapeworms. And they’re hard to get rid of. Adult fleas represent only 5% of the flea population- 95% are present in the environment as eggs (50%), larvae (35%), and pupae (10%). So, by the time the problem becomes apparent, it is invariably already well established in the pets surroundings. Help is at hand. New products not only are easier to administer but are more effective, faster and longer acting and broader spectrum (some cover ticks and worms too). Dargaville Veterinary Centre stocks a complete range of these products and provides the advice to make them even more effective at surprisingly competitive prices. Fleas upon your pets (or even your!) back? Come and see the DVC team and we’ll get it sorted!

Mangawhai traffic and parking changes

Art for the festive season

u by Andy Bryenton

Art and a little music are on the Christmas menu at the White Rock Gallery, based in an annexe of The Kauri Museum at Matakohe, on December 15.

The Kaipara District Council has instigated a number of changes to the traffic and parking infrastructure of Mangawhai. The changes were designed collaboratively with the Mangawhai Business Association and residents at two council-led workshops. Councillor Peter Wethey said businesses were “keen to get the ball rolling”. “The trial isn’t setting anything in concrete. If it doesn’t work, we have a chance to change it next year,” says Peter. Five core improvements are being put in place for Mangawhai. These include additional temporar y parking, traffic management p Navigating Mangawhai will become easier with the addition of a new, free shuttle bus and revised parking for the strategies, including the summer season temporary conversion of part of Wood Street to one-way, a free from 10am through to 5.30pm from shuttle bus connecting the village, December 27 until January 12. Then heads and surf club, better pedestrian on weekends and public holidays up access in the Wood Street area and a to February 9. Boat ramp congestion is also being time restriction of 60 minutes for Wood addressed, and temporary toilet Street’s angled parking. These changes are the first step in facilities erected at this popular spot the Wood Street revitalisation project, in anticipation of busy days ahead. a plan set to be instigated from next The council will collect feedback during year. The free Heads-Hop bus service, summer to rate the effectiveness of all part of this summertime plan, will run aspects of their plan. ¢

Lynn has just moved to Tinopai.” An interesting, varied and eclectic collection of creative work from Kaipara artists and craftworkers will make up the exhibition, with a wide choice of Christmas gift ideas. The exhibition will

continue during the holidays and “all are welcome between 1pm and 4pm, and there will be beverages and nibbles as well. “The wide range of work for sale includes oil paintings, watercolours, sculpture and lots more.” The gallery is also celebrating its first birthday at Matakohe, after it was initially housed in the former Otamatea County Council chambers at Paparoa, now home to the town’s medical centre and library. ¢

Northpower embarks on off-grid power trial

Award for Excellence in Technology

Northpower is teaming up with Hubands Energy and the Friends of MatakoheLimestone Island Society to install an off-grid power solution to the Ranger’s house on the Island.

Congratulations to Troy Panapa-Thurlby, Taz Snelling and Irimana van der Mei of MUDTech (pictured with Young Enterprise Scheme CEO Terry Shubkin) for winning the Northpower Award for Excellence in Technology.

The $51,000 project will replace the existing small-scale solar PV/battery system – which is supported by a petrol generator – and it could be completed before Christmas! Northpower Network General Manager Josie Boyd says the project is the perfect opportunity for the company to test and learn about off grid technology.

Troy, Taz and Irimana (a combined team from Kaitaia College and Kaitaia Abundant Life School who have been doing YES through Papa Taiao) have built an underwater remotely operated vehicle to help with inspections of boats for the identification and control of marine pests that may have attached themselves to the hull below the water line.

“It enables Northpower to gain technical experience with an off-grid system using the latest technology as these systems are becoming more viable as alternative for uneconomic parts of the distribution network,” says Mrs Boyd. “It also gives us the chance to work alongside Friends of Matakohe-Limestone Island Society and support their ongoing environmental activities on this historic island, while also gaining an understanding of consumer interactions with off-grid solutions.” Mrs Boyd says supporting the development of alternative electricity solutions could help minimise costs to consumers in the long term.

There is significant interest from a number of parties – the Northland Regional Council included - as it could remove the need for specialist divers to inspect boats and/or expensive lifting of boats for inspection.

Northpower consumers to receive over $10m Most Northpower consumers are receiving a $220 (including GST) discount on their November or December electricity bills, an increase from the $120 distribution paid last year. That’s because we are giving you a Northpower Pricing Discount – thanks to Northpower and the Northpower Trust. You will see a credit on your November or December electricity bill. Those who don’t receive $220 (including GST) will receive $63 (including GST) – you can learn more here https://northpower.com/electricity/pricing

Are we low-hanging fruit? u by Matt King, Member of Parliament for Northland

Recently National’s spokesperson for climate change biosecurity and agriculture Todd Muller and I held a series of public meetings throughout the Northland electorate. Our intent was to listen to what you have to say about the state of politics in our nation and the issues that concern you. Our electorate has many diverse communities, but it quickly became clear to Todd and to me that there is a ground-swell of deep concern as to where this government is taking us — the track the government is taking us down. That track, you told us, is taking us too often to the farm gate. You told us that those in the rural communities feel they are being singled out by this government. Measures such as the Zero Carbon Bill and Water Quality Consultation are unfairly skewed toward the rural community as if we are the chief pollution culprits. We are not; cities are. On the water quality issue, this government has come up with a totally unworkable one standard fits all, that does not take into account the unique characteristics of our rural communities — yet does virtually nothing to address big city polluters. Carbon emissions seem to be the sole domain of cows, according

to the government. Their solution? Get rid of the cows and plant trees. Thank goodness for Todd Muller, who was able to address these real concerns and to give clear concise solutions. Unfortunately, none of these solutions can be enacted while we remain in opposition, and we can only hope that not too much damage is done in the meantime. The most prevalent question at those meetings remains unanswered — why is this government picking on rural communities? I don’t have an answer to that, but I have a view. First, I don’t think they understand the farming sector. That, I guess, is a given. Second, and far more insidious, is that they find us an easy target. Low-hanging fruit. No votes to be gained here. Well, let me tell this government that if they persist on taking us down the track they are, this particular fruit will come back to bite them.

Two decades of fishing fun u by Andy Bryenton

Tinopai school’s annual fishing contest is only a month away, and tickets are already selling fast as school administrators, and local anglers predict a big turnout on January 11, 2020. The school, who utilise this 20-year-old tradition as a major fundraiser toward the education of local kids, are calling it “a great day out for the entire family. It continues to be one of the biggest events for one of the smallest schools on the Kaipara Harbour!” As well as the beautiful backdrop of Tinopai itself, and the chance to drop a line into a harbour, which is traditionally teeming with fish in the summer months, the attraction may come down to the swag of prizes assembled for this, the 20th year of the contest’s history. As such, 2020’s tournament has been branded an ‘anniversary celebration’ by organisers, who have outdone themselves in mustering a prize pool. “There are prizes galore to be won, including inner harbour and outer harbour prizes, an entertainment bundle for the kids’ sprat competition, loads of spot prizes and a $1,000 cash prize for the lucky ticket draw.” This last big bonus could p Tinopai’s annual fishing contest is going extra-large for its 20th birthday, but many of the anglers will still be small go to anyone present on the day, regardless of their luck with the bait from 2019 is indicative, there will be and hook.

Resource management conference success The recognition of Willie Wright’s long-time dedication to the protection of the Kaipara Harbour was one of several highlights at the New Zealand Association of Resource Management’s 66th conference.

Willie, who is of Te Uri o Hau, was one of three Northlanders recognised during the conference, and says he was honoured to receive the award. “The acknowledgement of the mahi being undertaken around the Kaipara Harbour and within her catchment is testimony to the tremendous work and dedication by many to improve water quality and biodiversity,” says Willie. “Restoring the harbour’s health requires all of us to stand together and take action to make a difference now.” For his outstanding contribution to catchment and community, Willie received a Taonga carved by Korotangi Kapa Kingi. Fittingly, the Taonga is made from swamp kauri that has come from the Kaipara. Landowner Geoff Cookson was also recognised at the conference, for his family’s work to combine strong financial returns and sustainable management practices on their bull beef finishing and forestry property at Kawakawa.

Award winner Willie Wright (right) with NRC Land Programme Manager Duncan Kervell.

Northland Regional Council Land Programme Manager Duncan Kervell also received an award, for his outstanding contribution to resource management in New Zealand. The conference brought together around 180 delegates from across New Zealand, mainly working in land management, and earned high praise from attendees says Duncan. “As our council was the lead organiser for this year’s conference, we were really thrilled to get amazing feedback from those that came,” says Duncan. “Likewise, it was great to have the opportunity to showcase our unique region and the opportunities and challenges we have ahead in Northland managing our land and water for future generations.”

Congratulations to HeadsUp Adventures, which took out the Northland Regional Council Environmental Excellence Award at this year’s Westpac Northland Business Excellence Awards.

The Thirsty Tui Paparoa Hotel is celebrating three years in business and proud to be selected as one of the best classic pubs in Northland in the guide to New Zealand Pubs — 175 Classic Pubs to Visit. We are offering a great Christmas menu for all of December, and there is a beautiful garden bar, and vintage-style dining room perfect for group bookings. Chef Stephen Harrison and owner Pam Goode highlight local produce and seafood and serving meals full of surprising flavours and fresh ingredients. Now open daily from 10.30am; it’s a great place for brunch, lunch or dinner and the kids are just loving the Classic American Pancakes with real Canadian maple syrup. It’s family-friendly with petanque, quoits and colouring-in. For those into finger-licking goodness, the Kaipara Fried Chicken (KFC!) Wings and its secret recipe dipping sauce are perfect to share with some delicious new cocktails on a summer’s evening. We’re getting some amazing reviews. Mark from Southern California said: “very creative menu, in the best sense — fresh ingredients, including local seafood, friendly service and generous servings.” Robert V wrote: ’The interior is furnished and decorated in 1950s style and looks

superb… the food is excellent too as is the coffee.’ Simone F, a proud local, said: “The Thirsty Tui is a ‘must stop’ for those travelling through! It’s arguably some of the best fare in the Kaipara.” Foodies will love the creative burgers! Whole Hog Burger with Bacon and Pork Belly and the Oyster and Bacon Burger. The Kaipara Flounder, freshly caught just down the road, is popular with tourists

and locals and the fresh salads get rave reviews as does the home-made Lamb Pie. All made fresh on the premises with quality ingredients. Great vegetarian options too with the California Dreaming Burger, a Zucchini Pesto Pine nut Pizza and Sicilian White Bean Risotto with fresh basil, cherry tomato and a drizzle of locally produced Lemon Olive Oil.

Christmas Messages Hot December changes Santa’s plans u by our North Pole Correspondent

The ice and snow are all around us here at the North Pole, as an army of logistical elves finalises plans for their boss to deliver an expected five billion presents in less than a month’s time. However, the heat set to hit the southern hemisphere this summer has prompted some changes, both to Saint Nick’s attire and to his new sleigh. “It was time for a change in the transport department, especially seeing as the reindeer really feel the hot summer nights down in New Zealand and Australia,” says Mr Claus. For some added boost, Santa has had his traditional big red sleigh overhauled, using a body kit inspired by drift racing cars and new engines, which harness the power of the ‘naughty and nice’ list

When asked about a top speed, Santa just gave a wink and said: “We won’t be lending it to Mr Clarkson to find out, but let’s just say it makes Elon’s new toys look like a wooden train set.” “We all know that knowledge is power, and this list contains literally billions of hours of real-time knowledge about who has been on their best behaviour coming up to Christmas.

The call is out for kids and parents to leave a cool, refreshing drink out for Santa this year. While Mrs Claus has cautioned him not to overindulge in cake, he says that he can be forgiven a few calories, considering he’s going to climb up and down a total of 89,000 kilometres worth of chimneys in 12 hours. ¢

Hospice Kaipara staff, volunteers and board members gathered with family and close friends on November 29 to honour the commitment of those who give their time to this vital service, and to acknowledge those leaving and those joining important roles. Dargaville’s Rapid Relief Team, another voluntary group, dedicated to providing care, relief and compassion in times of need, offered to cater an extensive festive lunch, with further contributions coming in from Countdown Supermarkets. Before enjoying this feast, Hospice volunteers were thanked profusely by those who manage and administrate the organisation locally. “We wish to thank you all, for all you have done for Hospice Kaipara, in all your roles. We’re extremely grateful,” said the team’s family support coordinator, before long service medals were awarded to volunteering veterans. Also revealed were the identity of the new chair of the hospice’s governing board, prominent Dargaville businessperson Joanna Ewenson, and the new manager of the town’s hospice shop, Jeni Gorrie. Previous store manager Jane Walker, leaving after an 11-year tenure, was personally thanked by many of the staff she has worked alongside. Things have

Christmas Messages A gift from the Kaipara u by Andy Bryenton

Dargaville’s Muddy Waters Gallery has recently opened a new exhibition with a difference, leading into the festive season. The selection of artworks and jewellery are priced to be gifted to friends and loved ones, giving them a unique piece of the Kaipara for Christmas.

We are open every day over the Christmas Holidays! Short term (from one week) memberships available.

The Affordable Arts exhibition is the work of a long list of local talents, across a vast array of media. With nothing on the walls priced at more than $150, it’s also a great way to give something out of the ordinary for those relatives who are hard to buy for. As one of the exhibiting artists puts it: “These works are inspired by our surroundings, made by locals, and can’t be bought anywhere else.” That makes a contemporary painting or handcrafted piece of jewellery a different option from the fare found in the season’s retail catalogues from big box stores. It’s also a way of giving a very personal gift, which reflects this part of the world for relatives and friends visiting for the holidays. Relatives halfway around the world or even just in another part of New Zealand can receive a window on Kaipara life. Though, of course, it’s also a fine opportunity to invest in some unique artwork for your p One of the Muddy Waters Gallery’s curators puts the finishing touches on this year’s Affordable Arts exhibition, just in time for the holidays

Enjoy the best of both u by Andy Bryenton

Summer’s here at last, and the big questions of the season have come around again. Should I get my motorcycle licence? What’s the best way to start out? The answer could come from an unexpected quarter. Honda’s CRF-R range of track-only motocross bikes are dominant in their field, but almost certainly too powerful to appeal to novices. They’re also precision-engineered to accelerate and turn with nimble speed on dirt, not asphalt. However, Honda has seen the gap, and they also deliver a CRF of a different character, which ticks all the boxes for new riders. The CRF-L series tops out with the mighty Africa Twin, a bike, which is designed to cross continents and endure adventures. However, its baby brothers, in the 150 to 250cc displacement range, maybe close to a ‘jack of all trades’ as a motorcycle can get. Their robust construction comes from decades of Honda making reliable farm bikes, their power and handling stem from that CRF-R lineage on the track. With the addition of lights and indicators, they’re ready for the road as well. Many rural riders who don’t possess a road licence have had a go on a twowheeler or quad out in the fields. For them, the riding position of the CRF will be natural; not the hunched-over stance of the hardcore racer nor the easy-chair stretch of the ape-hanger chopper. The controls are simple.

The engine is economical but punchy, with good solid four-stroke torque available with a twist of the throttle to take riders from the road to the trails. A cheap commuter, a companion for adventures or a stepping stone to bigger bikes above the learner’s grade? It does all three. With many riders opting for ‘adventure bike’ configurations as their weapon of choice, the ‘junior’ version makes sense as a versatile, fun way to learn. The CRF-L is a bit of a global sensation, which says a lot. In nations

where the roads are worse than ours, where the infrastructure is patchier, and where the network of repair agents, service stations and motor mechanics is rudimentary, people aspire to own one of these machines. So, when the desire to try something new strikes this summer, there’s no need to compromise. The CRF-L series is such a popular learner that you’re even likely to recoup good resale value when you step up to a bigger bike in future. ¢
