Dear  Editor, I  would  like  to  express  my   disgust  and  concern  about  an   incident   that   happened   last   Friday   around   4pm   at   the   Kopua  skate  bowl. During   clean   up   works   at   the   bmx   track,   Hayden   and   :D\QH 5REEV IURP 5DJODQ Earthmovers   were   suddenly   verbally  abused  by  a  group  of   20   young   people   between   8   and  16  years  old. Hayden   and   Wayne   were   called   all   sorts   of   names,   even   threatened,   apparently   because  of  the  dust  created  by   the  clean  up  works. Most   concerning   about   this   incident   is   that   a   couple   of  these  youngsters  were  seen   drinking  alcoholic  drinks. Also   not   a   single   adult  

was  present  at  the  time  of  the   incident. I  believe  this  is  completely   unacceptable   and   that   these   youngsters  responsible  for  this   incident  should  come  forward   and  sincerely  apologize. Also   in   return   they   could   KHOS ZLWK ¿QLVKLQJ RII WKH bmx   track   by   putting   the   mulch  on  the  sides  of    the  start   hill  and  jumps.   This   whole   project   has   been   completed   without   any   SUR¿W DW DOO VR LWœV UHDOO\ VDG to   see   the   disrespect   from   those   ones   who   the   track   has   been  made  for. 3ROLFH KDYH EHHQ QRWL¿HG of  this  incident.

Course offers comprehensive insight Asphalt now laid on Bow street into â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;world of Maoriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; A  comprehensive   course   or  wananga  embracing  the   world   of   Maori   tradition   and   protocol   is   set   to   be   held   in   Raglan   under   the   tutelage  of  prominent  local   kaumatua  Russell  Riki  who   says   the   time   has   come   to   tell  the  stories  of  his  people. Working   with   the   newly   established   Wahangaoterangi   Trust,   Russell   will   hand   down   generations   of   oral   tradition   including   Maori   faith,   te   reo   or   Maori   language,   waiata   or   singing   and   Maori   history   gleaned   from   his   life   as   a   spiritual   leader   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   a   role   for   which   he   was   groomed   from   birth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My   grandparents   took   me   from   my   mother   when   I   was   less   than   two   hours   old   and   raised   me,â&#x20AC;?   Russell   said   of   his   upbringing   in   the   tradition   of   a   chieftain.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;And   I   was   never   allowed   to   speak   English   at   home  until  I  was  14.â&#x20AC;? Marae   protocol,   tangi   and   blessings   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   which   are   now   part   of   Russellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   daily   work   in   support  of  iwi  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  will  be  covered   on   the   Pupuru   te   ao   Maori   course,   as   will   the   importance   of   Papatuanuku   or   gardening   DQGKLLNDRUÂżVKLQJWRWKH0DRUL way  of  life.     Russell   and   course   co-­

ordinator  Louise   Middlemiss   expect  the  six-­week  wananga  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   which  is  being  offered  to  Raglan   ÂżUVW Âą WR DSSHDO WR D ÂłEURDG´ range   of   people   from   tourists   to  locals,  Maori  and  non-­Maori   alike.   They   have   structured   the   weekly   evening   sessions   at   5DJODQ 7RZQ +DOO WR ³¿W LQWR peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   lifestylesâ&#x20AC;?,   though   exact  dates  have  yet  to  be  set.     Louise   says   the   course   is   an   opportunity   for   people   who   want   to   feel   more   comfortable   with  Maori  protocol. The   course   is   entitled   Pupuru  te  ao  Maori  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  translated   as  Embrace  the  world  of  Maori   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   and   Louise   says   it   will   see   Maori   beliefs   taught   by   the   well-­respected  kaumatua  whose   ancestry   connects   him   to   the   wider   Tainui   region   and   other   waka  throughout  the  country. Russellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   west   coast   iwi,   Ngati   Tahinga   and   Ngati   Mahanga,   means   he   liaises   comfortably   with   both   tribes.     Recently,   for   instance,   he   conducted   a   blessing   at   Raglan   Museum   where   the   two   shared   common  ground.   The   blessing   of   items   destined  for  display  was  part  of   a   welcome   to   the   Bird   family   who  farmed  for  years  across  the   harbour  at  Te  Akau  and  donated   WKHLUÂżQDOFROOHFWLRQRIDUWHIDFWV including  historically  important   moa  bones,  to  the  museum.  

Raglanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  main  street,  Bow  Street,  has  had     asphalt  laid  in  time  for  the  busy  Christmas   and  New  Year  holiday  season. Bow  Street  was  recently  resealed,  and  while   the   contractor   carried   out   the   job   as   required,   a   new   surface   was   laid   for   the   holiday   period   after  requests  from  the  Raglan  community,    and   pressure   from   Ward   Councillor   Clint   Baddeley   and  the  Raglan  Community  Board.

Kaumatua Russell Riki (foreground) with members of the Bird family during a blessing outside Raglan Museum Russell,  who   was   schooled   at   Waikaretu   north   of   Te   Akau,   found   it   an   honour   to   see   the   taonga   or   treasures   laid   in   their   last  resting  place.

Raglan businesses overwhelmingly oppose seabed mining proposals The  Raglan   Chamber   of   Commerce   last   week   announced   its   support   for   KASM,   after   its   members   responded   to   an   email   survey.   An   overwhelming   majority,   88%   were   against  seabed  mining,  4%   in   favour   and   8%   had   no   ÂżUPRSLQLRQ   Chair   of   the   Chamber,   Stephanie  Philp  stated  recently,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;A   major   component   of   our   WRXULVPPDUNHWLVVXUÂżQJZLWK an   expanding   environmental/ eco   tourism   element.   If   our   seabed  or  foreshore  is  damaged   it  will  ruin  that  market.â&#x20AC;?  â&#x20AC;&#x153;In  Raglan,  business  and  the   environment   are   inextricably   linked.  Our  full  board  supports   KASMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   aims   and   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   passive   protest  of  the  matters  at  hand.â&#x20AC;?   She   added,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   already   have   major   erosion   around   our   coastline.   Where   mining   has   occurred   in   New   Zealand   and   overseas,   it   has   adversely   affected   the   surf   breaks   and   caused   further   erosion.   This   would   be   disastrous   for   our   community   and   would   undoubtedly   impact   on   business.â&#x20AC;?   It   wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   all   about   the

years,  running   his   own   successful   business,   and   from   his   experience   on   the   board   of   SurfAid,   the   world   leading   NGO,   founded   by   Kiwi   doctor   Dave  Jenkins.  His  approach  involves  two   separate   questionnaires,   one   for   local   business   and   another   for   visitors   to   the   town.   He   has   been   consulting   with   Chad   Nelson,   a   Californian   surfer   who  has  done  similar  studies  in   UHJDUGV WR VXUÂżQJ LQ Orange  County.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   are   using   VLPLODU ÂżHOGV RI enquiry   to   make   the   end  data  comparable,   and  if  his  results  from   Trestles   are   anything   to   go   by,   I   think   we   are  going  to  be  quite   surprised   about   the   size  of  the  numbers,â&#x20AC;?   he  says.   Mr   Hill   is   not   a   KASM   member,   but   is   â&#x20AC;&#x153;very   interested   in   the   discussion   going   on,â&#x20AC;?   and   stated   that   he   wanted   to   wait   DQG VHH ÂżJXUHV IURP both   parties   before   making   up   his   mind   conclusively.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  be  surprised

Te Akau School : Doors opened in 1913

A  major   celebration   is   approaching   for   the   Te   Akau   community   with   its   one   and   only   school   about   to   turn   100-­years  old. When   Te   Akau   School   opened   its  doors  in  1913,  pupils  walked  or   rode   to   school   on   horseback   and   were  taught  in  a  classroom  built  of   cabbage   tree   slabs   and   lined   with   sacks. Now   with   three   teachers   and   37   students,   the   school   has   much   bigger   and   better   facilities   and   is   still  the  heart  of  the  community.       Being   located   in   what   many   would   consider   a   remote   location   has   at   times   left   the   school   facing   dwindling   pupil   numbers,   low   JRYHUQPHQW IXQGLQJ GLIÂżFXOWLHV attracting   teachers,   and   ultimately,   the  threat  of  closure.   Reaching   100-­years   old   is   a   major   achievement   for   any   rural   New   Zealand   school   these   days,   says  John  Jackson,  chairman  of  the   Centenary  Committee.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   think   any   time   you   can   get   an   institution   like   this   through   to

100  years,  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  certainly  well  worth   celebrating.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Especially   when   you   look   around   and   see   the   desolate   schoolyards   in   a   lot   of   rural   areas   these  days.â&#x20AC;? Part   of   organising   the   event   has   involved   spreading   the   word   to   former   staff   and   pupils,   many   of   whom   have   long   since   left   the   district.   Money   has   needed   to   be   raised   for  the  celebrations,  some  of  which   has  come  from  a  local  â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stock  driveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,   where   local   farmers   sell   sheep   and   cattle  and  donate  the  proceeds.   The   Centenary   Committee   has   also   set   its   sights   on   restoring   the   community  hall,  which  stands  next   to   and   is   used   by   the   school   on   a   regular  basis.     Vested  to  the  community  in  the   1920s,   the   building   has   lost   some   of   its   former   glory   and   giving   it   a   makeover   has   become   part   of   the   centenary   celebrations,   Jackson   says.     â&#x20AC;&#x153;It   was   a   suggestion   right   from   the   start   that   we   should   use   this   as   an   opportunity   to   bring   some  

outside  money  in  to  help  restore  the   community  hall.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Otherwise   the   thing   will   become  an  eyesore  and  a  health  and   safety  issue.  So  we  decided  to  save   it  while  we  can.â&#x20AC;? The  hall  has  already  been  given   a   new   roof,   thanks   to   a   generous   $10,000   grant   from   the   Sir   John   Logan  Campbell  Trust.     The  Te  Akau   School   Centenary   Committee   is   warmly   welcoming   all   who   have   had   an   association   with   the   school   over   the   years   to   come  and  celebrate  on  2nd  March.   The   day   will   commence   with   a   powhiri   at   the   school   entrance   at   10:00am,   before   a   jam-­packed   schedule  of  activities  such  as  decade   photos,  a  performance  from  current   pupils,   school   tour,   sausage   sizzle,   music  jam  session,  and  games. Celebrations   will   later   move   on   to   the   Te   Akau/Waingaro   Community   Complex   where   an   evening   dinner   and   dance   will   see   the  party  out.          Ben  Chapman-­Smith Those   looking   to   register   can   go   to:   www.schoolground.co.nz/ teakau

Animal Health Column Club very much part of Raglan For Raglan people + their pets

Pets on holiday: The holiday season is rapidly approaching, and for those of us with pets there are a few extra things to consider to decrease the likelihood of misadventure for locals and tourists during the summer holidays. Vaccinations: Most boarding kennels and catteries require pets to be fully vaccinated and boosted annually. For cats WKLVLVDLQYDFFLQHWRSURWHFWDJDLQVW´FDWĂ XÂľDQGGRJV get vaccinated against parvo, distemper, hepatitis and lepto as part of the core vaccine, and a kennel cough vaccine is required for boarding kennels. Taking your pets on holiday increases their risk of exposure to potentially lethal viruses so vaccinations should always be kept up-to-date. 6ZDOORZHG RU HPEHGGHG Ă&#x20AC;VK KRRNV This is a common SUREOHPLQSHWVZKRVHRZQHUVHQMR\UHFUHDWLRQDOĂ&#x20AC;VKLQJEXW sometimes pets will pick them up while exploring. Pets can swallow them while scavenging bait or get them embedded in the face or skin while at beaches or wharves, particularly at low tide. If this happens we recommend a trip to the local vet clinic, because if the barb is embedded they are very GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWWRUHPRYHZLWKRXWVRPHIRUPRIDQDHVWKHWLFDQGWKH FRUUHFWWHFKQLTXH6ZDOORZHGĂ&#x20AC;VKKRRNVKDYHDIDUJUHDWHU risk factor, and should always be seen by a vet. Overheating: With summer comes the peril of hot cars and abandoned animals. All animals are prone to heat stress if left unattended in hot cars, and this also applies to dogs tied on the back of utes. Signs of hyperthermia (overheating) in dogs are hyperventilation (excessive panting), bright pink gums and increased rectal temperature. Care must be taken not to overcool these animals, and a trip to the vet clinic for a check up is recommended. NEVER leave animals in hot cars! 'RJĂ&#x20AC;JKWV Over the holidays we treat an increased number RIGRJVLQMXUHGLQĂ&#x20AC;JKWVPRVWRIZKLFKRFFXURQWKHEHDFK These range from major, life threatening injuries, to less serious wounds requiring pain relief and antibiotics. Deep puncture wounds will often not be very visible or bleed much, but will commonly result in infection and should be treated as soon as possible. As a precaution, dogs should be kept on leads in public places or when other dogs are around.

Making Waikato’s waterways safe There are more than 70,000 people who go boating in the region each year and Waikato Regional Council is responsible for setting and enforcing some of the boating rules to make sure our waterways are safe for everybody. We’ve been reviewing these rules for the Waikato and from Monday 17 December until Friday 22 February we’ll be seeking public submissions on the proposed Navigation Safety Bylaw 2013. We are particularly keen to get feedback on a proposed rule change which will make it compulsory for lifejackets to be worn on vessels of six metres or less in length while the vessel is underway.

REDUCE THE RISK The Waikato region has the highest number of fatal and serious road crashes in New Zealand and the tragedy is that over the holiday season this toll is likely to increase.

Even one drink makes you three times more likely to crash. Reduce the risk – don’t drink and drive. And if you’re heading away on a summer holiday road trip, consider the safety of you and your family by making sure your car is roadworthy.

Waikato Regional Council leads the regional road safety education group, working in conjunction with the NZTA, NZ Police, ACC and local councils.

To get to your destination safely:

We recommend following these tips if you’re hosting a Christmas party to ensure your friends and family return home safely:

The purpose of the bylaw is to provide for safe use within all navigable waters of the Waikato region, excluding Lake Taupō which is under the Department of Internal Affairs jurisdiction.

• serve substantial food and have nonalcoholic drinks available

The bylaw impacts recreational activities, including power boating, kayaking, yachting, jetskiing and swimming.

• keep an eye on everyone, especially young people

Visit our website for more information on the bylaw review and to complete the online submission form.

• arrange transport, ensure they have a sober driver or let them stay overnight.

• prepare your vehicle – check your tyre pressure and condition, fluid levels, lights, and clean your windscreen • prepare yourself – be rested before a long drive, plan the trip so you share the driving and take regular breaks to minimise fatigue • ensure children are correctly restrained in an approved car seat • check your load security and trailer coupling locks when towing a boat, trailer or caravan.

COUNCIL HOLIDAY HOURS

Life’s a beach in Raglan!

Waikato Regional Council offices will be closed from 5 pm on Friday 21 December 2012 and will reopen at 8 am on Thursday 3 January 2013. While our offices will be closed over this period, you can call our freephone 0800 800 401 any time to: • report air or water pollution • report unsafe water activities in or on a river, lake or harbour • make a general enquiry or information request.

Special summer Sunday services between Manu Bay, Raglan and Hamilton began operating on the weekend and will continue until 3 February*. On Saturdays until Easter, a service also operates between Raglan and Manu Bay. A separate fare is charged each way for adults ($1.00) and children (50 cents) travelling between Raglan township and Manu Bay only.

Meanwhile for those wanting to travel between Hamilton, Raglan and Manu Bay over the holiday season, extra public bus services will also operate for the New Year holidays, Anniversary Weekend and Waitangi Day.

Latest info online Waikato Regional Council is encouraging public transport users to check bus timetables online for temporary service changes being introduced for the festive season.

In Raglan, a Saturday timetable will operate on 27, 28, 29 and 31 December and 3, 4 and 5 January. A special timetable will operate on 30 December and 6 January. And if you’re heading to Mercury Bay over summer, go online for details of our special shuttle service operating between Ferry Landing and Hot Water Beach.

Sign of the times in Raglan Signs designed by students from Te Uku primary school have just been erected near the dune at Te Kopua in Raglan and urge beachgoers to protect new plantings by using the provided access ways.

developed by the Waikato District Council and Waikato Regional Council’s Beachcare programme to remove the exotic trees and replace them with more appropriate native plant species that would help support local biodiversity and improve the natural character of the area.

The students planted 300 native trees and 1700 native dune plants in September to help restore the dune ecosystem at Raglan’s Te Kopua domain.

Tree species planted in the back dune area include pohutukawa, karaka and karo, while native dune plants pingao, pohuehue and wiwi have been planted seaward of these trees.

Following their planting day, the students decided to create educational signage for beach users. Council staff were so impressed by the artwork and messages that four were picked and made into official signs that have now been installed around the plantings.

The plants will help to build the dunes seaward and reduce the risk of coastal flooding and erosion.

This dune system had been highly modified in the past and planted with exotic poplar trees that were starting to die. A plan was

Top and right: Two of the four drawings selected to appear on signs near Raglan dunes to educate beachgoers. Left: Students from Te Uku primary school planted natives at Te Kopua domain which will reduce the risk of coastal flooding and erosion.

BLOOMING HOT The forecasters reckon this summer will be hot and dry. These are the perfect conditions for triggering outbreaks of blue-green algae, making it unsafe for people to drink untreated water and to swim, boat or jetski. Waikato Regional Council will again increase water testing over summer, looking for signs of the potentially toxic algae in our waterways. And the results will be available online so you can keep up to date with the latest information. We also have handy water saving hints, so you can help to preserve this valuable natural resource.

One stop effluent shop An expo being held next March will provide a one stop shop for dairy farmers wanting to bring their effluent system up to code. Waikato Regional Council, supported by DairyNZ, will hold its third annual Dairy Effluent Expo at Mystery Creek Events Centre between 9 am and 3.30 pm on Tuesday 26 March.

www.waikatoregion.govt.nz/algalbloom www.waikatoregion.govt.nz/smartwateruse

SAVE THIS DATE In March Waikato Regional Council will be calling for submissions on the Draft Annual Plan 2013/14. A special edition of Your Waikato will be arriving in your letterbox about the same time with a summary of the key issues for you to consider. Don’t miss out! Register to receive Your Waikato via email.

www.waikatoregion.govt.nz/your-waikato

Many dairy farmers are making significant investments in their effluent management systems to protect the environment and to get the best value from the nutrients in their effluent. The expo offers an opportunity to talk to the suppliers of all the products and services farmers need to ensure their investment provides them with the best result for their farm. Already about 30 exhibitors are locked in for the day-long event, providing farmers with a good opportunity to get all the information needed to bring their effluent system up to code. Environmental farming systems manager Alan Campbell said council staff will be available to advise on the rules and compliance requirements and seminars will run all day on a wide range of hot topics for effluent management. “Farmers need peace of mind that their effluent system can comply with the rules 365 days a year and the Effluent Expo is a must for anyone who isn’t sure.”
