Local Coastguard voted TOPCUT BUTCHERY tops in region TRADING HOURS: Mon -­ Friday 7am -­ 5pm Saturday 7am -­ 2pm.

The   Raglan   Coastguard   may   be   called   out   to  fewer  rescues  these  days  but  that  hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   stopped   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   and   in   fact   probably   helped   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   it   being  named  last  week  the  northern  region   Unit  of  the  Year. Local   Coastguard   president   Wally   Hawken,   who  was  clearly  delighted  at  the  accolade  when  the   Chronicle  called  him  at  the  weekend,  reckoned  the   award  had  come  about    because  members    â&#x20AC;&#x153;got  off   their  butts  and  stepped  up  to  the  markâ&#x20AC;?. And  a  central  part  of  that  effort  are  the  two  or   three   bar   safety   days   which   the   Raglan   voluntary   organisation  runs  between  November  and  April.     Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   the   only   northern   region   Coastguard   unit   other  than  Manukau  to  run  bar  days  and  Wally  said   the  boating  education  message  â&#x20AC;&#x153;was  really  getting   out   thereâ&#x20AC;?   locally   and   in   that   sense   making   the   Raglan  Coastguard  a  victim  of  its  own  success. The   small   Raglan   unit   had   really   got   itself   sorted  in  recent  times,  Wally  said.  That  meant  being   HIÂżFLHQWHIIHFWLYHKDYLQJLWVÂżQDQFHVLQRUGHUDQG all  vessel  assets  â&#x20AC;&#x153;up  to  speedâ&#x20AC;?. The  vessel  assets  are  its  two  new  jetskis  and  the   Gallagher  Rescue  boat,  now  up  on  the  slip  getting   its  annual  overhaul  to  the  tune  of  $17,000  while  a   replacement  boat  has  been  brought  in  from  Marsden   Point  up  north  and  is  on  call  24/7.     But  Raglan  Coastguard  could  not  have  achieved   the   award   without   the   huge   community   support   it   had   attracted   over   the   last   couple   of   years,   Wally   insisted.   Sponsorship  and  support  from  local  organisations  

such  as  the  Chamber  of  Commerce,  Raglan  Real   Estate,   Westpac,   Kopua   Holiday   Park,   Raglan   Club  and  the  bowling  club  showed  the  town  had  a   ORWRIFRQÂżGHQFHLQWKHXQLWKHVDLG Wally  was  also  grateful  to  Coastguard  Raglanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   two   main   sponsors   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   Gallagher   Group,   after   which  the  rescue  boat  is  named,  and  Ecolab  in  Te   Rapa.  Wel  Energy,  the  Lion  Foundation  and  Trust   Waikato  are  other  important  sponsors.   He  said  while  the  number  of  rescues  was  falling   the  Raglan  Coastguardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  35  volunteers,  including   WZRZRPHQDQGÂżYHVNLSSHUVZHUHSXWWLQJLQDQ â&#x20AC;&#x153;amazingâ&#x20AC;?   number   of   hours   to   keep   everything   about  the  local  unit  ship-­shape  and  ready  to  go. Another   pointer   to   the   unitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   health   was   a   successful  recruitment  evening  run  last  week,  with   several  young  adults  keen  to  get  involved.   Meanwhile   the   existing   band   of   volunteers,   Wally   added,   were   looking   forward   to   moving   into   their   new   premises   at   the   wharf.        Continued  on  page  4..................................

Inventive muso plays with home-­ made instruments Self-­described   resonance   man   Marten  ten  Broek  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  just  make   great  music  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  he  also  makes  his  own   instruments   that,   while   they   might   produce   familiar   sounds,   can   have   a   rustic   â&#x20AC;&#x153;down   homeâ&#x20AC;?   look   all   their   own. The   37-­year-­old   Raglan   musicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   been   enjoying   lately   the   â&#x20AC;&#x153;deep,   sonorous   soundsâ&#x20AC;?   of   the   cello,   so   it   was   inevitable   heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d  start  stockpiling  the  right  bits  of  wood   and   ponder   how   much   he   needed   to   stick   WRWUDGLWLRQDOFRQÂżJXUDWLRQVDVKHVHWDERXW making  his  own.   Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  liking  the  violin  at  the  moment,  too   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   particularly   the   chance   to   hear   what   he   calls  â&#x20AC;&#x153;offsâ&#x20AC;?,  when  the  sound  is  not  quite  on   the  note  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  and  that  has  spurred  the  creation   of   another   of   his   rough-­hewn   stringed   instruments. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   also   particularly   interested   in   sympathetic   strings,   having   been   busy   of   late  looking  at  a  lot  of  Indian  music  like  that   of  the  age-­old  sitar. Sympathetic   or   auxiliary   strings   found   on  many  Indian  musical  instruments  are  not   played  directly,  Marten  explains  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  they  just   happen  to  â&#x20AC;&#x153;humâ&#x20AC;?  at  the  same  resonance  as   the  strings  above  them. The   sometime   barista   at   Boboâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   Raglanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   popular   hole-­in-­the-­wall   cafe   downtown   in   Volcom   Lane   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   has   another   project  on  the  go  too.  Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  making  another   lapslide  guitar.   Like   most   of   his   self-­built   musical   instruments  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  crafted  from  the  mahogany   of   old   furniture   picked   up   at   secondhand   shops   like   Xtreme   Wasteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s,   and   for   this   â&#x20AC;&#x153;experimentalâ&#x20AC;?   one   heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   changed   the   FRQÂżJXUDWLRQWRPD[LPLVHWKHYROXPH â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  get  bored  if  I  have  to  do  the  same  thing   all  the  time,â&#x20AC;?  Marten  told  the  Chronicle  last   week   before   his   â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Broken   Neck   Howling   Propellersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   gig   at   the   Yot   Club.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;And   if   I   get  bored  I  get  a  little  bit  morose.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not  much  chance  of  that,  judging   by   Martenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   juggling   of   his   innovative   instrument-­making   with   songwriting,   singing   and   performing,   making   good   coffees   and   occasionally   working   for   ORFDOO\RZQHG1H[W/HYHO5RRÂżQJ â&#x20AC;&#x153;Better   to   vary   your   diet,â&#x20AC;?   is   Martenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   philosophy. He   reckons   heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   one   of   those   people   who   run   around   with   a   song   in   their   head   most   of   the   time   and,   with   a   debut   album   behind  him,  last  weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  performance  at  the   Yottie   gave   him   a   chance   to   air   a   â&#x20AC;&#x153;pile   of   new  stuffâ&#x20AC;?.

  None   of   it   rehearsed   to   death,   he   hastens   to   add.  Spontaneous  is  more   his   style.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   nice   to   come   up   with   a   set   list   on  the  day  and  have  a  go   ...   it   keeps   it   (the   music)   fresh.â&#x20AC;? Martenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  played  music   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;    mainly  guitar  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  for  26   years  now  but  it  was  only   a   few   years   ago   that   his   FXULRVLW\ DQG ³¿QDQFLDOO\ challengedâ&#x20AC;?   situation   compelled   him   to   make   his  own  instruments  from   recycled  materials.   It   couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   be   rocket   science,   he   told   himself   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   and   besides   his   father,   now   in   France,   was   an   â&#x20AC;&#x153;amazing  woodworkerâ&#x20AC;?. So   Marten   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   a   left-­ hander   who   improvised   by  playing  a  right-­handed   classical   guitar   upside-­ GRZQ RU Ă&#x20AC;LFNHG WKH strings   so   he   could   play   either   way   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   foraged   around  and  came  up  with   his   own   purpose-­built   left-­handed  guitar.   Then  it  was  a  hollow-­ neck   lapslide   guitar,   like   Ben  Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  but  built  to   KLV RZQ VSHFLÂżFDWLRQV followed   by   the   construction   of   a   three-­ DIY guitar: Marten ten Broek with the hollow-neck string  slide  guitar.   lapslide guitar he describes as like Ben Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s but After   that   came   built to his own specifications.

Two teachers charged for unlawful entry onto local natural landmark Two  teachers  were  prosecuted  in  the   Hamilton   District   Court   last   week   for   unlawfully   erecting   abseiling   apparatus   on   the   Waireinga/Bridal   Veil   Falls   Scenic   Reserve   near   Raglan. The   teachers   from   Howick   College   in   Auckland  led  a  group  of  outdoor  education   students   over   barricade   fences   to   go   abseiling  and  had  purposely  covered  a  sign   that  clearly  stated  abseiling  was  prohibited   due  to  the  presence  of  threatened  plants. The   senior   teacher   was   also   convicted  

of   unlawfully   interfering   with   a   sign   on   the   reserve   and   ordered   to   pay   $500   in   costs  to  DOC.    The  junior  teacher  who  was   acting   on   instructions   from   his   colleague   was   discharged   without   conviction,   but   ordered   to   pay   $500   in   costs   to   DOC   and   also  offered  to  make  a  $500  donation  to  the   Waikato  Botanical  Society. DOC   Waikatoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Community   Support   Manager,   Rachel   Kelleher,   said   â&#x20AC;&#x153;DOC   is   very  pleased  with  the  judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  decision  and   the  penalties  handed  down.â&#x20AC;?   â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   case   highlights   the   importance   RI SURWHFWLQJ 1=ÂśV LQGLJHQRXV Ă&#x20AC;RUD DQG
