Dear Editor, I  am  writing  this  letter  on  the  Raglan  West  bridge  Burgershack. Takeaway. 35a Bow Street.................................................................... 825 8439 alongside  two  hundred  other  concerned  coastal  people  who are waiting to silently usher Mr Andrew Summerville  who represents the TTR mining company ­ who seek to  mine for iron ore off the west coast of New Zealand. !"#$%&'()'*'+$,%&)%-"./'%0"1'23,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,456%4789 Myself and two other members of our group ‘Surfers  For  Cetaceans’,  Lauren  Hill  and  Chadd  Konig  were  invited  to  Raglan  to  attend  the  annual  Maui/Popoto  Dolphin Day event. :';<23%='>)%?%@;2<<,%023)%23,%A3%BC)%DC';>,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,%456%EE9E Like  most  people  from  all  over  the  world,  we  have  come to Raglan because of the beauty, power and spirit  that permeates this place.  I  was  born  in  New  Zealand  but  moved  to Australia  F'1'$B)%-2BGC)3,%H'B%23%";%B'()'*'+,%I9%J"*%KB;))B,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,456%EIEE when I was six years old.  We moved to Burleigh Heads  on the Gold Coast. This is a wave once revered and visited by surfers from  around the world.  Around 2001  a sand dredging project began twelve miles  down the coast at Snapper Rocks.  We were told the project would not affect  Nannies Takeaways. 35 Bow Street............................................................................. 825 8842 the  rest  of  the  coastline  and  that  the  impacts  would  be  contained  around  Snapper.  Within months of the sand being moved two of the most famous  !"#$%&'(&)*$&!+,-.&!$,$&.$%),+/$.&0/&)*$&.'%,12)'+(&+3&%"(.&4+!5&&6$')*$,& Burleigh  or  Kirra  have  hosted  the  annual  Quiksilver  pro  since  the  dredge  L'M<'3%D)$B%KB";),%&'()'*'+$,N6%D'23/2%LO,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,456%45PI began.   Admittedly, the hydrology and coastlines of the Gold Coast and Raglan  differ, but what is similar is the importance of wave quality to the people and  &C)%KC'G(,%023)%23%";%&'()'*'+,%9P%J"*%KB;))B,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,456%EE57 their future.

It seems there are so many unknown components to the practice of sea  bed mining.  Is it worth sea bed mining here and risking the extinction of an  S';'M"T'%,%L)$B'/;'3B,%='>),%023)%23%?%&'()'*'+,%5I%J"*%KB,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,456%E5E5 entire species?  Is it worth risking the entire future of Raglan’s ecology and  $9+(+:/&)+&0$($7)&3+,$'8(&9+:2"('$%; I come from a place where we were told the manipulation of sand was not  going to negatively affect our greater region,  yet it did just that!   Any  person  who  lives  near  water  of  any  kind  knows  that  every  action  ripples out and affects the space around it 360 degrees.  So, as we stand on this bridge in solidarity to send TTR a strong message  WeatherMap - New Zealand weather forecasts http://www.weathermap.co.nz/?p=ragla that sand mining will not happen here, I can’t help but feel optimistic that the  people will stop them.  It is not too late to get involved and respect all that  makes this place special.  Abridged Dave Rastovich, pro surfer, NSW, Australia.

giveaways. 

Fifteen  rafts  went  head  to  head  in  what  turned  out  to  be  another  tough  competition  with  a  variety  of  prizes  up  for  grabs.  Last  yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner Sean Oliver was once again the  !"#$%$&%'"&##%$()%!*+#(%,+*)%")',-+.+*/%(+#%$+$,)% for another year.

Maryann  Tuao  and  Karin  Bettley  were  the  winners  for  the  water  conservation  competition.  Mason  Swann  won  our  kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  water tip competition, with his creative water  tip published in this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chronicle. 

Ironically,  the  day  after  the  Mauiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Dolphin Day was held, Waikato Times  feature  writer  Tracey  Cooper  had  an  extraordinary encounter with four Maui  Dolphins about a kilometre offshore of  Whale Bay.

Throughout  the  day,  marine  enthusiast  Peggy  Oki  collected  hundreds  of  photos  of  people posing with DOCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life­sized Mauiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Dolphin for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Face Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; visual petition.  Meanwhile,  the  kiddies  enjoyed  coloring  in  their own visual petitions over in the kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art  tent. 

Mauiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Dolphin  expert  and  associate  professor  Liz  Slooten  of  Otago  University,  said  most  Mauiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  dolphin  sightings  occurred  between  Manukau  Harbour  and  Port  Waikato  and  described  the  run­in  as  a  â&#x20AC;&#x153;really  luckyâ&#x20AC;? event.

The day wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just about who was fastest  however,  with  Whatawhata  School  entry  â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Shogunsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; scooping the big prize for best  raft sponsored by Ray White Real Estate.

Celebrity  guest  judge  and  pro­surfer,  Dave  Rastovitch    was  impressed  by  their  The  Sustainable  Coastlines  Education  message  of  â&#x20AC;&#x153;You  Drill,  You  Kill  â&#x20AC;&#x153;  and  the  effort that had clearly gone into creating the  Station  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  a  converted  shipping  container  ­  raft  to  highlight  the  local  issue  of  seabed  provided  a  central  hub  for  organisations  to  engage with people from the community and  mining.  However  he  said,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;it  was  a  really  tough  #(&='-#)%)10'-$+&*-,%.-$)"+-,%-*1%!,.#> choice with so many great entriesâ&#x20AC;?. Runners  up were Fonterra and KASM, both of which  were  close  seconds  for  â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Best  Raftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.  â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Best  Juniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  went  to  Naumai  Kereopa  Lloyd  racing  on  a  Raglan  Bill  creation,  closely  followed by Jo and Corina Tweedie.  As  for  the  most  number  of  people  on  one raft, well that was no contest, Waitetuna  Schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  raft  was  a  clear  winner  with  21  #$01)*$#%'"-..)1%&*$&%&*)%"-2$%-*1%!*+#(+*/% an  impressive  5th  place  on  such  a  big  and  weighty raft.

Rental concerns as wharf building rises from ashes As  steel  framing  rises  steadily  from  the  ashes  Waikato  District  Council  is  now  talking  early  July  for  completion  of the replacement Raglan Wharf “shed”, but some locals  closely  following  the  $1.7  million  project  fear  it  may  take  quite a lot longer to fully tenant the building and have the  precinct buzzing again. Council water & facilities general manager Richard Bax told the  Raglan Community Board this week that a lease had now been drafted  for Raglan Seafoods – which with Tony Sly Pottery was proving a big  visitor magnet before the old shed was razed in a spectacular early  morning blaze – and that there had been “a number of enquiries” for  other wharf space. But  some  locals  with  business  interests  in  the  area  say  they  understand  the  council  has  been  chasing  “Auckland  rents”  for  premises in the new shed and that it could be a long time before any  house full sign goes up.    They believe the council in at least one case has been asking for  $300 per square metre in rent, but that this has been negotiated down  to around the $200 mark. It  is  also  believed Tony  Sly  Pottery  is  unlikely  to  go  back  into  the rebuilt shed, preferring instead to stay on in its premises in the  boat­building factory alongside.  That northwest corner of the wharf’s  been enhanced in recent weeks with the opening of a coffee bar by  longtime local Stephen Sandwell.  Meantime  the  council  is  upbeat  on  the  replacement  building  project itself, saying work is “progressing well” and that – besides the  *99,*)*&5,(10(62,(/6,,$(91)6*$(0)*;#&'(<(*(51&5),6,(!$15=(.),4*$$(#/( now also partially complete.

The council’s 3D impression of the new wharf drawn by Beca

Shane Ardern MP

Richard  Bax  concedes  there  have  been  a  few  minor  delays  but  says that “barring any storms or events we are expecting to complete  the building by the beginning of July”.  One delay was the result of  a late internal design change to one premises, and is expected to add  slightly to the project cost. The council last week supplied the Chronicle with a 3D image,  drawn by Beca, of the new wharf building and this gives the clearest  idea yet of how the area should look by mid­year. Richard  says  the  appearance  of  the  building  has  not  changed  /#'&#.5*&6$-(0)1;(62,(9)1.$,/(9"6(1"6($*/6(-,*)>(((?&,(;#&1)(52*&',(#/( that an opening in the northeast corner will now have a roller rather  than conventional door.

Raglan says NO to seabed mining  Last Sunday 11th March over 200 Raglan residents  and  their  supporters  came  together  to  stand  in  opposition against proposals for an iron sand mining  operation off the west coast of the North Island.  The silent protest saw the group march up Bow Street and  continue towards the one­way bridge to peacefully await iron­ mining company executive Andy Sommerville, children and  adults alike bearing signs that clearly conveyed their position  on the issue. Represented by community­based awareness and advocacy  group Kiwi’s Against Seabed Mining (KASM), the protesters  lined  the  bridge  as  Mr.  Sommerville  approached.  Marching  in silence, the intensity of the message was abundantly clear;  “We  love  our  coastal  marine  environment. We  are  here. We  are strong. You will not take our sand.” The message was conveyed to Mr. Sommerville of Trans  Tasman Resources on his return from meetings with local iwi  about possible plans to explore iron sand deposits off Raglan’s  coast. Spoksperson  for  KASM  Phil  McCabe  said,  “We’ve  all  grown  up  experiencing  the  great  things  our  coastal  environment  can  offer.  We  all  have  some  connection  to  the  environment  but  there’s  no  guarantee  that  it’s  going  to  be  here when they’re done. We’re here today in a silent peaceful  expression of our love for the marine environment.” New  Zealand­based  iron­ore  company  Trans  Tasman  Resources (TTR) currently holds a Crown Minerals Prospecting  Permit,  which  grants  them  exclusive  mineral  rights  over  9633km2 of seabed off the west coast of the North Island.  This  permit  covers  three  plots  of  land,  one  off  the  coast  of southern Taranaki and the other two covering the coastline  north and south of Kawhia, including the coast off Raglan.  Mr. Sommerville’s visit follows announcements in August  last year that minerals (iron) located in the southern Taranaki  zone could be almost double what TTR had originally estimated  in March 2011, projecting resource estimates to be around 200  million tons in that area alone. The  NZ  Crown  Minerals  website  now  shows  three  exploration permit applications from TTR which were received 

Seabed mining protestors silently make their way across Wainui Bridge only a day after the protest was held.    An  article  published  in  industry  publication  Mining  Magazine  during  September  last  year  states,  “TTR  aims  to  begin production by the December quarter of 2014, providing  Asian markets with, initially, 10 million tons/year … with the  potential to increase to 50 million tons/year,”  TTR further claim in the article that, “the risks associated  with  environmental  approvals  are  limited  because  the  target  mining areas are located offshore and in very barren areas.” !"#$%&%'(!)*+,!-'#./01!1#!211%314#3!1021!#&%'!5&%!1#36! of  seabed  sand  would  be  shifted  for  every  ton  of  iron­ore  concentrate they extract, Furthermore  the  targeted  area  directly  overlaps  with  the  habitat  of  the  critically  endangered  Maui’s  Dolphin.  An  unpublished Department of Conservation report estimates the  Maui’s  dolphin  population  to  currently  be  less  than  80  with 

fewer than 25 breeding females. Dave Rastovich, pro­surfer and representative of Surfers for  Cetaceans, related his experiences in a letter to the Chronicle  of living in Burleigh Heads and the effects sand dredging has  had on his own community. “I come from a place where we  were told the manipulation of sand was not going to negatively  affect our greater region, yet it did just that.”   “ It seems there are so many unknown components to the  practice of seabed mining. Is it worth seabed mining here and  risking the extinction of an entire species? Is it worth risking  10%!%314'%!7.1.'%!#7!82/923:6!%;#9#/<!23=!%;#3#><!1#!-%3%51!2! company?” said Dave. KASM  urged  the  wider  community  to  get  involved  with  this issue and invites members of the community to attend a  meeting, which will be held at the Town Hall on Tuesday 20th  March.       Maki Nishiyama

At  heart  of  the  decision  to  close  TV  7  is  the  government’s  requirement  for  a  9%  return on its investment from the commercial  free  to  air  channels.  In  other  words  every  aspect  of  life  is  now  about  making  money.  The  idea  that  it  might  be  worth  spending  a  modest amount of money to have an educated  and informed view of the world available is  obviously too advanced for the money men.  In  my  more  paranoid  moments  I  wonder  if  an intelligent populace is the last thing those  in power want. Our job is to be hardworking  consumers  watching  mindless  television,  frequently exposed to many ads that increase  our desire to spend, spend. I wonder how one goes about starting a  revolution?

ARBORIST
