THAT’S ODD A WARTIME hand grenade was discovered on an English beach when an off-duty military explosives expert saw it being thrown for a dog to chase. The unsuspecting walker picked up the barnacle-encrusted “stone” for his pet to chase along a beach without realising it was a deadly explosive. A passing bomb specialist spotted the danger and alerted the police and coastguard, who set up a 30m cordon around the grenade. It was later taken away by explosive ordnance disposal officers. The device was discovered washed up on the Essex shoreline – the fifth in as many weeks. Inspector Paul Butcher said: ‘‘It would appear that the grenades might have been in a crate that ended up in the sea during World War 2. Dredging in the port has resulted in these five devices being washed ashore along the same stretch of beach.’’

Drug-smuggling couple face jail in Chch and Peru By Max Towle A SOUTH African drug-smuggling couple are expected to be jailed in Christchurch and Peru. Laura Cilliers, 32, was caught at Christchurch Airport with $1.2 million worth of heroin on June 15. She will be sentenced in the district court today after admitting a charge of importing the class A drug. In a new twist, The Star has learned her newly-married husband, Sydney Cilliers, was caught smuggling drugs in a Peruvian airport a month before her arrest. A May 19 release from the Peruvian National Police said Sydney Cilliers, 32, had been arrested at Jorge Chavez Airport, Lima, trying to smuggle cocaine onto a flight to Amsterdam. The class A drug was found concealed inside his luggage. He faces up to 15 years imprisonment in a squalid Peruvian prison. South African media has reported the couple, who were homeless and depended on handouts, married in Middelburg, South Africa in December. The prison in which Sydney Cilliers is currently held has been called “harsh” and a place where inmates have to pay for things like toothpaste, bedding, food, and clothing. Reports said he had nothing except the clothes on his back and no help from the outside world. In Christchurch, Customs has wrapped up its investigation into Laura Cilliers. A Customs spokeswoman said Cilliers’ motive for smuggling heroin was money, but said there was no evidence to suggest which country the drugs were destined for. She would not say if Sydney

Police say the quad bikes were stolen from a Dunsandel farm in the early hours of the morning on August 11. Three unemployed men in their early 20s were arrested at a Christchurch address later that day. One of the men was believed to have previously worked at another farm near the one from which the

But a judgement released by the Supreme Court yesterday dismissed the appeal. “It has not been shown that there was any error of principle in the Court of Appeal’s approach and no miscarriage of justice arises,” the judgement said. • Bodybuilder jailed, page 4

Sergeant Chris Jones said one of the bikes had been left in a ditch halfway between Dunsandel and Lincoln, while the other two had been abandoned on the side of the road on the outskirts of Lincoln after the men came into contact with a Lincoln University security guard. “When the security guard came across these boys he gave them a fright and they took off,” Sergeant Jones said. The men had their first court appearance last week and were remanded on bail.

Bodybuilder jailed for masterminding steroid dealing ring

$1.5 billion in building consents approved By Emma-Jane McLennan

MORE THAN $1.5 billion in building consents has been approved by the city council so far this year. One hundred and ninety-seven of those consents were worth more than $1 million each. There were also 2305 consents of under $150,000 granted, 1588 between $150,000 and $500,000 and 453 between $500,000 and $1 million. The average value of approved building consents is $339,835. The speed in which they were granted has been steadily rising since February, but took a downturn last month. It was at its highest this year in June,

A FORMER Christchurch bodybuilder has been jailed for nearly four and a half years for masterminding a million-dollar steroid dealing ring. Phillip Musson, 44, admitted to 182 Medicines Act charges dating back to 2011, including importing anabolic steroids, anti-oestrogens, and synthetic growth hormones from Hong Kong and China. Musson and his co-offender, Rodney Bailey, sold much of the steroids to other bodybuilders. Banned medicines worth around $300,000 were seized in a police raid in 2012. Musson also imported ingredients used to make party pills. The court heard Musson and his co-offenders made up to $55,000 per week from the sale of party pills alone. In yesterday’s sentencing before the Auckland District Court, Judge Philippa Cunningham took into account Musson being left depressed and financially hurt following the earthquakes.

with 82 per cent processed within 20 working days, then dropped to 75 per cent in July. The city council contracts 18 external building consent authorities, with eight actively processing building consents. Of the building consent authorities that have received training, there is a potential capacity to assist the city council with 172 consents per week. However, only 60 consents a week average was outsourced last month, down from 95 per week at the end of June. All building consent types are taking an average around double the time they are ‘not to exceed.’

Compliance review By Tom Doudney

HIGHER PUBLIC expectations and more intense land use in the postearthquake environment are key reasons why the city council is reviewing its resource consent monitoring and compliance. Staff are in the early stages of the review and have identified some broad areas to focus on. There are currently around 1700 monitored resource consents. Each year around 700 new consents are monitored. The duration of the consents, which require ongoing monitoring, can be up to 30 years. There are also 750 temporary ac-

commodation permits, issued under the Resource Management Act, which will require monitoring until they expire in April 2016. Regulations and consents committee chairman, city councillor David East, said it was important to be mindful that the environment and circumstances in the city were constantly changing. “A consent that was appropriate 10 years ago and is still current in its lifespan may need to be amended in light of current circumstances so this is where the enforcement team are continually looking at the operation of consents.”

REBECCA’S TOP SIX COLOUR TIPS:

1

2

Put together a scrapbook of colours you like and take this when you are visiting stores. Decide on the surfaces with the least choices available first – such as carpet, flooring and benchtop.

Colours will appear lighter when they are painted onto a large indoor area. If you think the colour that you are looking at on the colour chart may be too light, choose a darker colour.

3

4

Colour can have a huge impact on how a room feels. Warm up a cool room by using warm colours such as creams and reds. Or cool down a hot room by painting it soothing blues and greens.

If you’re opting for a neutral colour scheme, choose a colour family and then vary the tones from full to half, quarter and double strength. This will help to add extra interest to the colour scheme.

5

6

Light will affect your paint colours so it’s important to plan your lighting at the same time. Paint a piece of A2 card with two coats of your test pot and move it around the room to see how the colour changes.

The same colour on a ceiling looks much darker than on a wall. If you want your ceiling to look the same (or lighter than) your walls, opt for half or quarter the strength of your wall colour.

Your CEOs – what they earn City council company bosses’ pay packets By Tom Doudney

THEY’RE EARNING hundreds of thousands of dollars but some of Christchurch’s top public sector chief executives are refusing to say how much exactly. In the aftermath of recent controversy over the bonus paid to Orion chief executive Rob Jamieson, The Star made inquiries about the salary and bonuses paid to the chief executives of the other six companies where the city council’s investment arm Christchurch City Holdings Ltd is the majority shareholder. The Star asked for figures for the 2013/2014 financial year, which ended on June 30. Three of those companies – Lyttelton Port Company Ltd, Enable Services Ltd and Christchurch International Airport Ltd – refused to release those figures this week, saying they would be available later this year when their annual reports were published. Mr Jamieson’s earnings of between $720,000 and $730,000 in the last financial year have been criticised by a number of sources, including Mayor Lianne Dalziel, as being out of touch. Those earnings

included partial payment of a bonus for good performance, equivalent to 15 per cent of his salary over the last three years. CCHL chief executive Bob Lineham said that in the last few weeks, CCHL and the companies had agreed on a policy of only releasing the chief executives’ remuneration in its annual reports. “[These companies] are publicly owned, they are very transparent in the release of their information but they are entitled to decide the time they release that information.” Mr Lineham said the policy was nothing to do with not making the information available but rather it was about putting the figures into context with other information contained in the annual reports. Ms Dalziel said she had been advised it was standard procedure for this salary information to be released as part of the annual report process.

• Remuneration for chief executives of companies where CCHL is the majority shareholder (reporting periods vary) Lyttelton Port Company Ltd chief executive Peter Davie The company wouldn’t say what Mr Davie earned in the 2013/2014 financial year, however, its annual report shows he earned $1.05 million for the year to June 30, 2013. That figure included a fixed remuneration of $474,000, a shortterm incentive of $160,000 and a long-term incentive of $413,000. Enable Services Ltd chief executive Steve Fuller The company wouldn’t say what Mr Fuller earned for the 2013/2014 financial year. However, its 2013 annual report shows the chief executive’s total remuneration was between $590,000 and $600,000 for the year to June 30, 2013. A company spokesman said this figure had included both short-

term and long-term incentives, tied to the company’s performance. “Assuming appropriate performance levels, over 50 per cent of total CEO remuneration comes from these incentives,” the spokesman said. Christchurch International Airport Ltd chief executive Malcolm Johns The company would not reveal Mr Johns’ remuneration but its 2013 annual report shows that previous chief executive Jim Boult earned $590,000 to $600,000 for the year to June 30, 2013. He received no bonuses.

Red Bus Ltd chief executive Paul McNoe Mr NcNoe earned $320,000 to $330,000, including a bonus, for the most recent financial year, which ended on June 30. Mr McNoe said his projected salary for the current year was $230,000 to $300,000. The bonus for this year had been incorporated into his base salary and there would be no bonus in future. EcoCentral Ltd chief executive Judi Sefton Ms Sefton earned a salary of $224,000 in the 2013/2014 financial year and is line for a $50,000 bonus, depending on the company’s performance. That bonus is to be considered by the board of directors at the end of the next financial year. A review of the appropriate level of remuneration was undertaken in December by an independent consulting firm at the request of the board. EcoCentral Ltd board chairman Dr David Kerr said Ms Sefton had been recruited from a position in the industry where she was very highly regarded. “She has performed at a very high level and has earned the respect of both the staff she employs and the board who employ her,” he said. “We would anticipate a very high level of achievement for her to be in receipt of the at risk component.”

The Big Question

Are we scum?

Nicky Hager’s controversial book Dirty Politics reveals Auckland blogger Cameron Slater called the city’s earthquake victims scum, and the Government should “just board [Christchurch] up and close it down.” We ask what Cantabrians think of the comments. Christchurch Central national MP Nicky Wagner: • Cameron Slater’s views are his own and I don’t condone them. People living in Canterbury are great as we all know.

Labour list MP Clayton Cosgrove: • No one deserves to be called scum, least of all the people of Canterbury who have been through hell and back. I call for John Key to denounce Mr Slater for the comments he has made. A prime minister worth his salt would have already condemned him. This is an outrage. We don’t want

this sort of stuff in our politics. We can debate till the cows come home Mr Hager’s interpretations of the emails, but they don’t lie. Mr Slater’s comments are fact. Who knows what effect this will have on the election, but this does go to the question of character. Senior political science lecturer Bronwyn Hayward: • The comments from Mr Slater are abhorrent and make me really sad. Unless the prime minister and the Government roundly condemn them, we’re beginning a very serious shift in the tone of

language we use in public debate. It is fundamental in small countries that we check our language and speak civilly, otherwise it becomes very difficult to govern. I have read the book and have to say it was a depressing read. It is damaging for National because it’s the first time I’ve had my National Party students ask me what the party actually stands for? In a community such as Christchurch where people feel they are suffering and out of step with the wider country, this can galvanise their indignation and swell the voter turnout.

Canterbury cricket all-rounder Andrew Ellis: • The comments said a lot about the individual himself. Being a sportsman, I’m used to having criticism from different angles, but looking at this it’s just completely not justified. I think most of the country understand the issues Christchurch is going through and sympathise. He offended Canterbury’s pride, but I don’t think his views represent the National Party’s views of Christchurch.

Former Wigram MP Jim Anderton: • Slater’s comments are appalling but no surprise. I was a victim of him quoting me saying something I never did during a past election. He’s not capable of an apology. His blog is aimed at making life miserable for people, rather than any kind of elucidation of fact. If Slater is on a particular side of politics, which he seems to be, that’s not the side I’m on. I do believe this

book will change the way people vote. I know how these things work and the more you listen to the prime minister, the more you have to conclude that he’s not telling us everything he should.

What the book revealed Cameron Slater: • “[Christchurch] is f****d, they should just board it up and close it down.”

• Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee wouldn’t comment on the book.

• “What I can’t believe . . . is how we have to bail out those useless pricks in the sth island, again.”

• “Those suburbs are hard core Labour . . . the owners will be Nat voters though and the voters tenants, so the houses are gone and the scum are gone too, and they should get nothing.”

What the people say We asked people on the street what they thought of the Christchurch earthquake scum comments attributed to Cameron Slater, and if Nicky Hager’s book Dirty Politics would change their vote in next month’s election.

John Jensen, delivery driver, of Papanui: “Someone has to supply the money for the rebuild. Ratepayers and the city council can’t afford to. No [it won’t change my vote], not at all.”

Sarah Shea, mother, of Lincoln: “I haven’t read the book and don’t intend to. I always knew it was going to be an attention-seeking sort of thing. Nothing in the book will change my political point of view.”

Isobel Drabble, retiree, of Redwood: “The book is nothing new. What people should take from this is Hager is just trying to make money out of people. This is definitely not going to change my vote. I’m voting National or for Winston Peters.”

Trixie Woodall, costume designer, of St Albans: “Everybody has opinions about us, but why say that? What’s going on? If Auckland or Wellington has a disaster, they’re going to need as much help as us. No, it won’t change my vote. I’ve already formed my opinion on most things.”

Chris Noble, artist, of Beckenham: “I don’t think in terms of politics, I think of things in terms of basic human rights and a human being has the right to help another irrespective of the motives. Slater’s abusing his power as a blogger. I’m going to vote Labour at any rate.”

The Christchurch Wizard, wizard, of central city: “Those in power should have good fundamental values, but people in this country are being rolled over by greedy bureaucrats. People don’t think about the future of beautiful Christchurch. The comments are just typical politics. I can’t vote as I’m not a real person, I’m a living work of art.”

TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT: IAGCANTERBURY.CO.NZ *Figures accurate as at 15 August 2014

David Burton, retiree, of Yaldhurst: “Cameron Slater is obviously someone who is a massive attention-seeker and is highly opinionated to the point of being arrogant and beyond. He should have very little notice taken of him, really. He should be shut down. Rubbish like that is an insult to Christchurch and its people. No, it’s not going to change my voting habits.”

Rhonda Ross, grandmother, of Bishopdale: “I didn’t see those comments but I would have been annoyed. I was not personally affected by the earthquakes but the comments still really annoy me. He can say what he wants about us, but it’s like they always say, you have to walk the walk before you can talk the talk. No, it won’t change my vote. I think this particular political campaign has become very nasty and everyone’s acting like a pack of kids in a schoolyard.”

“TOPO”

BURN-BACK PROTECTION RIKA pellet heaters have a special safety feature: the backlog sensor. This prevents any blockage of pellets in the feed - ensuring optimum burn-back protection. REMOVABLE ASH DRAWER Most RIKA pellet heaters have a removable ash drawer for particularly easy and neat cleaning.

Whether you are a home owner, a builder, or an architect give us a call or come to the E Energy showroom to view the Rika fires.

COMPLETELY AUTOMATIC OPERATION Choose thermostat or timer-controlled heating - this means you can set and forget.

We can save our city

EVERY NOW and then I’ll come across a doom and gloom merchant who will tell me there’s nothing to do in Christchurch. I’m always confused by those sorts of comments because it could not be further from the truth. There are many people in this city and across the country who are committed to making it a better place. We’re often led to believe that a convention centre is one answer to cure boredom in the city and that it could solve a lot of economic woes. It’s not the so-called anchor projects that will save our city, it’s ourselves from an already thriving entertainment sector. This past weekend highlighted the wonderful arts and entertainment culture our city has with an industry that does a stunning job supporting itself. I’m not exactly a massive theatre goer, but I was fortunate enough to go to the Court Theatre’s latest and brilliant production of Plum, based on English humourist Sir P G Wodehouse. The theatre was sold out, the script was fantastic, the cast was amazing, the set design was realistic and it’s fair to say the production was warmly received with plenty of laugh out loud moments. Without sounding like a tryhard cultured resident, I felt lucky watching some of the country’s best actors performing just metres from me. Our city has been fortunate to be directly involved in the New Zealand International Film Festival, screening some of the world’s

No sign of ‘cash-strapped Christchurch’ there. The production values were impressive, including a flying Peter Pan, ice skating lions and stunning synchronised lighting Disneyland night parades are famous for. Earlier that day I took a stroll around Re:Start container mall, and posted several photos to my Facebook page. I felt proud to be among a transitional area which has been described as a must-see attraction by international travel guides. Still, there were a handful of ‘glass half empty people,’ criticising the food and beverage outlets for being “too expensive.” However a takeaway coffee is no more expensive than what you’d pay for at Westfield Riccarton. Guess some complainers don’t shop there either. One man largely responsible for getting the Re:Start mall off the ground is Christchurch businessman and developer Antony Gough. I can’t but help admire his tenacious attitude. It could have been so easy for him to pack up

He told me on my television show on CTV that “Christchurch is a fantastic city to be in.” You can tell he means it. “This is a chance of a lifetime to help create a new city. Nobody, normally would get this opportunity, why wouldn’t you want to be here.” Those words must ring true for Auckland investors partly responsible for Strange’s Lane, a new entertainment and dining precinct in High St. It’s a lane-way with several restaurants coming off it and areas within the lane for people to sit and dine. So next time someone tells you there’s nothing to do in the city, send then on a one-way ticket out of Christchurch.

QUEST: Christchurch police are trying to track down the owners of these medals.

medals turn up in pawn shop

Did they belong to our fallen heroes? By Max Towle

MORE THAN 140,000 Kiwis fought overseas during World War 2, and nearly 12,000 never made it home. Almost 70 years after the war ended, Christchurch police are trying to reunite a set of war medals with an unknown soldier. The medals were recovered from a central city pawn shop where a 35-year-old Addington woman had traded them in last month. Police were quickly alerted to the sale.

SERVICE: Soldiers of New Zealand’s 20th Armoured Regiment transporting a Sherman tank over the Po River, Italy, during World War 2. Detective Sergeant Don Fisher “We’d love to find the medals’ said police were sceptical of the rightful owner. I’m sure these medwoman’s explanation that the als are very important to a Kiwi medals belonged to her deceased family,” he said. grandmother. Detective Sergeant Fisher said

the woman had been arrested but not charged as police were still trying to ascertain if the medals had been stolen. The medals are the 1939-1945 Star, the Africa Star, the Defence Medal, the War Medal 1939-1945, and the New Zealand War Service Medal. They are unnamed, which has so far made it difficult for police to track down their owners. If you have any information please phone Detective Sergeant Don Fisher on 363 7400. • In May, The Star spoke to David Bell, who was trying to track down his uncle, Major Jock McGruther’s five war medals. However, that collection included the Italy Star. Mr Bell said plenty of people had offered their help trying to recover

the medals, but had so far been unsuccessful. The missing medals The 1939-45 Star – For operational service in World War 2. The Africa Star – For service in an operational area of North Africa between June 10, 1940 and May 12, 1943.

The Defence Medal – For service in World War 2. The War Medal 1939-45 – For service in the Armed Forces or Merchant Navy full-time for at least 28 days in World War 2. The New Zealand War Service Medal – For service in World War 2 by members of the New Zealand Armed Forces.

Substandard REPAIR WORK We are receiving a growing number of complaints from homeowners about substandard repairs to their earthquake damaged homes by the nominated repairer. One homeowner has shown us where chair legs have been used to pack her piles in the infamous jack n pack process. We have plenty of examples where windows and doors have been planed to fit rather than fix the wall frame or foundation. In another case untreated timber has been used to prop up bearers and even bearers being notched to allow the floor to return to a reasonable level state. We have evidence of bricks going up without the use of building paper which in time will allow moisture to egress into the home.

None of the above repairs comply with Insurance policies nor with the Earthquake Act nor any industry standard. If you feel you have had substandard repairs or repairs that have failed, don’t let anyone tell you that you are outside the 90 day complaint period. You have rights and both EQC and Insurance companies have obligations. Most insurance policies require repairs to be carried out to an “as new” standard, NOT “substandard”. If you have concerns over the repairs to your home we suggest these 4 steps: • Get a licensed builder or building assessor to check the repairs against the scope of works.

• If there are issues email both EQC and your Insurer immediately and lodge a We have seen ring foundations complaint. with numerous cracks that • Keep complaining until the have had epoxy resin squirted issues are addressed properly. in to fill up the gap above the ground, then painted over. • If they refuse or ignore you, Some homes that have had then get some legal advice. cracks in GIB walls painted To most people their home is over in the repair process and their most valuable asset, and those same cracks open up no one wants to see a leaky again. homes on steroids situation in There are houses that still Canterbury in years to come. shake when trucks go past because the foundations were not repaired properly.

ENCOURAGING: Canterbury University commerce and law student Hannah Duder, shows her new app, Candidate and website encouraging young people to get involved with the upcoming election. PHOTO: DUNCAN SHAW-BROWN

New voting app to turn on young A MOBILE app designed to aid young voters will be launched today. The app, Candidate, was created by Canterbury University commerce and law student, Hannah Duder. Earlier this year, Ms Duder received $10,000 from the Handley Foundation as part of the Shoulder Tap national recruitment campaign. She was granted the money after pitching the idea, and has used the money to develop the app. Ms Duder said she was interested in developing the app after realising only a third of young people were expected to vote in this year’s General Election. “Our aim is to get at least another 18,000 young people to vote otherwise the views of old people will be the ones that will win this election and that would really suck.” The web-based app can be used on any cellphone, computer or tablet with an internet browser. Ms Duder said she had been in touch with all major parties while developing the app. “They have provided policy topics following a survey I put out to young people to see

which topics were important to them.” ACT, NZ First, Mana/Internet, National, Labour, Green the Maori parties have all responded, Ms Duder said. Ms Duder previously worked with Shoulder Tap community and businessman Derek Handley to set up the Virgin Voter Collective, a website to help young voters. “Our Virgin Voter team has gathered some surprising data which shows youth voter decline is a much bigger issue than most people think,” she said. “A lot of young people feel that politics and voting is quite boring and not relevant to their lives.” Electorates where there was a critically low number of enrolled voters such as Auckland Central, Dunedin North and Wellington Central were concentrated on, she said. Three Christchurch red zone affected electorates were also on the list. “A lot of people are out there trying to get people my age get excited about voting in this year’s election and we recognise that if we pool all the brains, numbers and activities then we can have a bigger impact.”

Ninja beats the odds and starts a new life By Max Towle

A ONCE neglected dog that featured in The Star has finally found a new home. Two-year-old collie cross Ninja was rescued by the SPCA seven months ago after being neglected and left severely underweight by his owner. Three weeks ago, The Star featured Ninja in an article about dog owners having trouble finding pet-friendly rental accommodation. Ninja was adopted by Burnham soldier Private Hamish Blake and his partner Danielle Chalmers last week. The two adopted Ninja to give their other dog, a shar pei/staffy cross named Bonnie, some company. “Bonnie and Ninja have been playing together and are getting on very well,” said Private Blake. “Ninja’s still getting used to the new house, but he’s not caused us too much trouble.” Christchurch SPCA marketing manager Raina Roberts said she was delighted to find Ninja a new home. “When you have a dog for so long you really want it to go to a good home, and that’s the case,” she said. The SPCA found Ninja after responding to

He had been neglected by his owner and was around 9kg underweight. Private Blake said he would rather adopt a dog in need than buy a new puppy. He has had overseas deployments to Timor and Afghanistan.

Concern over wasted road repair money BY GABRIELLE STUART

Work on an Avonside road has stopped while city officials scrap over who plans earthquake repair work. Public money is being wasted on repairing roads which will need to be ripped up and changed by the city council, according to the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board. They want to see all earthquakedamaged road repair plans put to community boards for approval before work starts. But at a recent city council meeting, Mayor Lianne Dalziel told the board that would be impossible. Community board chairwoman Sara Templeton said there had been several cases where the Stronger Christchuch

Infrastructure Rebuild Team repaired roads as they were, when the city council planned to change the road layout. “It seems a silly waste of money to go ahead and replace like for like when there are new plans going ahead for the streets.” The community board raised their concerns about SCIRT plans for part of Avonside Drive, which would have been closed to vehicles without community consultation. Work has stopped on the road until a city council consultation process has been completed. At a recent Earthquake Recovery Committee meeting, Hagley-Ferrymead Ward city councillor Yani Johanson said he wanted detailed designs of every project done in the ward put to the board for approval. That way he said the board could identify any issues before work started. The city community boards are already notified by SCIRT when projects in each ward are about to start. But Cr Johanson said that the board usually only received about three days notice. “By the time we get the start work notice, it’s too late to have any meaningful influence over the design.” The mayor said at the meeting that the city council would need to look at the way it worked with SCIRT.

Work starts on new child cancer building

After months of working from car boots and public libraries, staff at the Child Cancer Foundation was excited to see work start on their new building last week. The building will be constructed on the foundation’s original Cashel St site, and is expected to open early next year. Since their building was destroyed in the February 2011 earthquake, the Christchurch team have worked across the city from their own homes, the boots of their cars, the Westpac Community and Business Hub, bedrooms at YMCA Christchurch, cafes and libraries.

For the last two years staff have used a building provided by the Christchurch International Airport as a base. The original family place was visited by an average of 25 families per month as well as staff, volunteers and health professionals. A short walk from the hospital, the foundation offered a place for families to meet other families, volunteers and staff. Child Cancer Foundation chief executive Robyn Kiddle said that being close to the hospital would be a bonus for the team.

Neighbourhood cops curb crime in suburb BY MAX TOWLE

Drug and alcohol-fuelled crime in Phillipstown has plummeted since a neighbourhood policing team started walking the beat. In late-2011, a neighbourhood policing team was created to tackle rising crime in the suburb.

In the two years prior, four people were murdered, two police officers shot and a police dog killed. In its first few weeks, the team executed more than 20 search warrants and arrested around 25 offenders. Drug houses were raided and gang members moved on. Christchurch Police last week re-

leased figures that showed the team had reduced crime by 28 per cent in the area. Police had saved around $5.5 million in crime reduction costs. A 2013 survey showed 90 per cent of Phillipstown residents felt safe. Team leader Sergeant Todd Webley said people were no longer

reaping the rewards. “I am always being told by parents – and I can see it in the children as well – that Phillipstown has become a safer area,” he said. Last week, Canterbury district commander Gary Knowles said police were looking at setting up a NPT in Aranui.

Drivers of vehicles caught on a Hornby street at night without a legitimate reason to be there can now be fined. Sir James Wattie Drive has been added to the city council Prohibited Times on Roads bylaw, which already covers about 50 streets across the city. Between the hours of 10pm and 5am, only “legitimate users” can use the streets. The street was included recently at the request of the Riccarton-Wigram Community Board. Community board deputy chairwoman Helen Broughton believed it was a positive move for the community. The streets put forward to be added have been highlighted by police due to high numbers of complaints about dangerous or nuisance behaviour, or persistent problems which have remained over a long period of time. Ms Broughton said the street had been highlighted by the police as a problem area.

Call for youth funding changes

Managers of businesses on Sir James Wattie Drive spoken to by the Western News said they supported the law, but had not noticed significant problems themselves. Maxwell Contract Warehousing logistics manager Jeff Knowles said the warehouse was only open during the day, so staff generally didn’t notice any problems on the road. “I’m not aware of too many problems but I do support it, I think it’s a great idea.”

Young people most in need of funding could have missed out, because the criteria has been aimed at funding those already at the top. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board has asked for their Youth Achievement Scheme criteria to be changed. The current minimum requirements for funding

include Canterbury representation or a “competitive results record”. Community board chairman Paul McMahon said he was concerned people from “modest means” would be excluded. “If a young person has really worked hard and wants to do something at a national or international level, we want to make sure they’re not excluded from the criteria because they

haven’t had the resources to compete before.” He said he did not believe any applications had been turned down for those reasons, but believed it could have put students off applying. He said the aim of the funding was to help youth to become the leaders of the future, and while achieving excellence was important, it wasn’t the only factor.

Keep night shifts to a minimum and keep off drugs, says expert NIGHT WORKERS who have trouble sleeping after their shifts shouldn’t rely on sleeping pills, a German psychologist warns. Hiltraut Paridon says there’s a real danger of becoming psychologically dependent on the little chemical helpers. A relaxing routine can be a healthy alternative. “Whether it’s drinking a cup of tea, reading the newspaper for a while or taking a shower, they’ve got to find out for themselves” what works best, says Paridon. Quiet surroundings and dark curtains are important in getting a good day’s sleep. She warns that: “shift work is never really healthy” and that “our bodies aren’t meant to work nights”. Although some people cope with the night shift better than others, no one should work nights for long periods, she says. Many bodily functions follow a 24-hour rhythm. The “sleep hormone” melatonin is released at night, with peak sleepiness occurring between 2am and 4am and alertness picking up again around dawn.

The circadian rhythm of people who work nights is disrupted. “Many (night-shift workers) suffer from sleep disorders. They have trouble falling asleep after their shift or are unable to stay asleep,” says Paridon, noting that a number of medical conditions, including cardiovascular diseases and digestive problems, were associated with shift work. “Shift workers generally have a less healthy diet, smoke more and get less exercise” than people who work during the day, Paridon says. The deleterious effects of working nights are not only physical. “Shift work impacts social contacts,” said Friedhelm Nachreiner, a psychology professor. At worst, night work can lead to social isolation because a shift-worker’s morning bedtime is when most other people get up. Shift workers should try to keep up with friends and family but they shouldn’t overload the days they need to rest with work, such as building an extension of their house or running all of their errands. “That’s not only strenuous, but the risk of an accident increases ANTISOCIAL HOURS: Workers must be wary of adjusting their body clock through chemical means. enormously,” Paridon says.

Put aside your preconceptions of pink and check out this hot hue for spring. Pink is everywhere at the moment — from flamingos on men’s shirts to pink hair colour. It need not be pretty and girly. Though there are pretty, flouncy dresses, items like this hot pink Ruby diamonds jumper are a lot edgier. With so many different shades of pink there is one to suit everyone. People with cooler skin colours often find pinks that have blue undertones are the most flattering. Those with warmer skin tones can veer into corals. For work, a pink silk shirt looks great under a blazer. Or pack a cute pink mini like this one from Ruby for your next weekend away. Embrace pink in your makeup as well. Spring is a great time to experiment with a dash of pink blush, and a pink lip is less in-your-face than red but can be just as eye-catching. Experiment with a few vivid pinks can be great for a night out, while a slick of pink gloss will give understated polish

school activities throughout the day too. Our four key values, learning, aroha, connected and faith, reflect the importance of our traditions as well as give us a focus on the future as we continue to offer a wide range of academic, cultural, sport and spiritual opportunities. What has endured over the last 163 years is the sense of family, setting us apart from other schools. We work hard to make everyone in our community – children, parents and staff – feel welcomed and accepted. Learning is easier that way! If your area has a past pupil of the school and would like to reconnect with us in preparation for our 165th year celebrations in 2016, please email us at 165years@saintmichaels.co.nz.

S

t Michael’s Church School was founded in 1851 as Christchurch’s first Church Day School, beginning in a small wooden cottage on the banks of the Avon River and continues to operate on the Durham Street corner site in the inner city. Historical records note during Rev Thomas Jackson’s speech before the sailing of the first four ships: “...The Canterbury Association...propose the foundation of schools for primary and secondary education”. Of these first schools erected, St Michael’s remains the only one still operating today – a testament to the tenacity of the parish and wider community to ensure an affordable religious education has always been available to the families of Christchurch. St Michael’s maintains its historical connections in many ways, such as through the naming conventions of the school houses: Mathias, Harper, Averil and Perry all vicars of the St Michael’s parish. Today, St Michael’s no zoning policy allows us to accept enrolments from the greater Christchurch area. To fit in with the lives of busy working parents, we welcome students to arrive at school from 8am daily, and provide an on-site homework and after-school care facility until 5.30pm. An added bonus for central city workers and those involved in the rebuild is that our central location allows the daily school run and work run to merge into one journey. We’re close by for you to pop in to join us for morning assembly, church and other

Wednesday August 20 2014

t’s an exciting time to enrol at Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery. We’ve completed a successful merger of Discovery 1 and Unlimited Paenga Tawhiti, and are moving towards building our innovative new space back in the central city. We currently have new entrant places available for whanau that enjoy taking an active role in the children’s education. Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery delivers diverse and flexible individual learning pathways for students from years 1 to 15. For new entrant children, this means that they are encouraged to explore literacy and numeracy concepts while engaging with the community in a safe, supportive environment. We value the many pathways to success and encourage energetic and powerful learning for all our students. Our students are courageous as they push the boundaries of their own learning by taking risks and developing their own path. Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery actively strives to celebrate the uniqueness of individuals, while unifying the community. We share our successes and work through our difficulties with compassion, care and tolerance. The transition to school can be an emotional time for the whole family. When a child is enrolled, parents are encouraged to support their new student through this by spending as much time in the homebase as the child needs. This is a time for whanau to get to know the learning advisors, children, parents and other staff. We consider all members of our

community to be both learners and teachers, and we welcome family members to actively participate in the learning experience.

It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2014 KenKen Puzzle LLC. All rights reserved

Race against time to prepare car

A team of students from Canterbury University are competing in the Formula SAE race car design competition. Andrew Voerman paid a visit to their workshop last Friday to see how they’re going AT ONE end of Canterbury University’s mechanical engineering building, a group of students in red coats are hard at work building a race car. They’ve been at it since February, and at the moment, they’re nearly a month behind schedule. Their car was supposed to be ready to drive at the end of July. Now it’s the middle of August, and they haven’t yet got it on wheels. A whiteboard at the front of their main room lays out the situation. Under a big red heading – “due Friday 15th” – is a list of around two dozen items, all supposed to be completed today. While there is still a bit of the day left to go, the majority of them remain unfinished. Even so, no one seems to be panicking. Team principal Tim White explains the situation to me. While he’s concerned by the delays, he says there’s no point getting on peoples’ backs and making the project less fun. The team’s biggest problem is that every day they’re still working on putting the car together, they’re eating into their development time, which is where the competition is won and lost. That means they have less time to try different approaches, less time to get drivers up to speed, and less time to iron out any kinks. Another member of the team, Jeremy Daines, pops his head in from the room next door. He’s been on the hunt for a certain design of wheel nut, with a

He tells me it’s been pulled apart ATTENTION TO so they could install a new sensor, DETAIL: Team and quickly puts all the pieces principal Tim White and second- together so I can see what it’s supyear student Ben posed to look like. Geayley inspect Outside, team member Dan the underside of Pugh is busy grinding away on last year’s car. what appears to be a big block of PHOTO: ANDREW cheese. VOERMAN​ It’s actually the mould for the round hole rather than an angular one. He’s tried every potential supplier in New Zealand, and those suppliers have been on to their suppliers on his behalf, to no avail. The only place he’s been able to find them is on a website based in the United States, and he wants the go-ahead to make the order. White says yes. I ask if they ever have any issues with customs. Nothing major, he says, but they’re always holding on to stuff more than they need to. It’s a small room, but there’s plenty going on. Benches and shelves covered in equipment run down both sides, and in the middle sit the skeleton

frames of two cars, this year’s and last year’s. I hadn’t expected the old car to still be around, but it quickly becomes clear how important it is. With the delays in getting the new car up and running, they’ve been using the old one quite a lot, in order to get their drivers time behind the wheel. Second-year student Ben Geayley is standing over it, and wants to ask White about something that he thinks needs fixing. The two start inspecting the underside of the car, and I wander down to the other end of the room to the new machine. Final-year student Adam Waterhouse is fiddling away with its engine.

car’s radiator shroud. It started as a big lump of polystyrene and he’s been slowly crafting it into the shape he wants. He says he’s been at it for two days, and still has another two days in front of him. I leave him to it. Next door to the workshop is a smaller room, filled with computers. Sitting at one of them, White calls up a file that contains the design for the car. It’s slightly out of date, he warns, but it does the job. A 3D model of a race car pops up on the screen, and White pulls up a list of its many components. He selects one of them, and up pops a brake disc. They were one of the items on the to-do list, and the team has

just heard that they have finished being cut. Team member Michael Furness has been dispatched to pick them up. Above the row of computers, stuck to the wall, is a timeline for the project. It includes the various deadlines they have to meet as per the Formula SAE rules, as well as their own self-imposed ones, arranged in three columns. Halfway down the second one, a date jumps out. Monday, July 28. The day they were supposed to start testing. It’s been and gone. They were supposed to be coming to the end of their second test by now, but are still playing catch-up. Around the corner from the computer room is another big workshop, where a pair of students are hard at work putting the finishing touches on the mould for the driver’s seat. Back in the main room, another engineer-in-training, Brooke Mitchell, is busy working on the car’s wheels. He lets me in on an interesting fact – this is the second set of wheels they’ve received this year. The first lot weren’t made according to the design they sent away – they were too narrow inside. Another of the many little delays that conspire to keep things off track. Furness arrives with the brake discs, which quickly get passed around. They’re somewhat smaller than I imagined. Waterhouse is still tinkering away with the engine, and gets into a conversation with Mitchell. They’re looking forward to firing up the engine for the first time, one of the project’s big milestones. You can tell by the smiles on their faces that it’s something they’re really looking forward to, and they’re hoping to do it by the end of the weekend. They may be under the pump, but there’s still plenty of excitement to be had.

Golden Oldies The Star continues to look back at its sporting past. This week in 1990, two Cantabrian athletes were involved in unusual events. John Hellemans had to battle jellyfish in the All Japan Triathlon, while Russell and Vivian Prince took part in a halfmarathon that involved climbing 2000m up a mountain. Much was made of how the All Blacks’ draw with Australia on Saturday put an end to their 17-game winning streak. The same weekend in 1990, Australia ended another streak, of 22 tests unbeaten, with a win at Wellington’s Athletic Park. It seems we took it more gracefully back then.

Boost for young athletes By Andrew Voerman

CANTERBURY’S NEXT generation of athletes are receiving more help on their way to success, after the launch of the Pathway to Podium programme. As the name suggests, its aim is to produce athletes capable of winning medals at Olympics and world championships. The programme’s initial intake has 17 athletes, involved in sports such as athletics, swimming, and rowing, as well as several others. They were selected by their national sporting bodies earlier this year, after being identified as being one to three years away from qualifying for support from High Performance Sport New Zealand. Around 350 athletes are involved across the country, with the hope they will be winning medals eight to 10 years down the line. In Canterbury, the programme is co-ordinated by cricketer Andrew Ellis. He approached Sport Canterbury when he saw the job advertised, as he was looking to gain experience in the fields of high performance sport and athlete management. Now he’s responsible for managing some of the region’s emerging talent. They had a series of workshops and seminars during July, where

they were given advice on subjects such as nutrition, psychology, and life management. They’ve also been given access to strength and conditioning sessions at HPSNZ’s Apollo Projects Centre in Jellie Park. Amy Mills, a rower, believes the programme is doing a great job of bridging the gap that currently exists in athlete support. “As a young athlete, it’s catching me now, and it’s making me take (rowing) more seriously.” It has also helped her realise that there are other people doing the same things she is. “It’s not a totally out of this world

goal to want to go the Olympics,” she said, as an example of something she’s figured. “Everyone else in the room has that goal too.” Rachael Kennedy, 23, an up-andcoming rower, is one of the chosen 17. She first got into the sport during high school, then dropped it when she started university, before picking it up again several years ago. She was recently selected for Rowing New Zealand’s southern regional performance centre. Matt Phillips, a swimmer, is finding it hard to achieve balance between his study and his sport.

“They’re both very demanding, but I love them both at the same time, and I don’t want to give either of them up.” He said one of the big lessons he’d learnt was the importance of training smartly. “If you’re sore and not getting enough sleep, there’s no point training,” he said, as an example. “I use to never warm down or do any stretches or cold ice baths afterwards. Now I’ve got into a habit of doing that.” At the moment he’s doing eight to nine sessions a week, for up to two hours at a time. All three athletes have their

sights set on the Olympics as the ultimate goal, with Tokyo in 2020 the event where they’ll be hoping to first make their mark. For now, they’re all looking for a chance to represent their country. Being part of the programme involves spending one-on-one time with Ellis. Mills said she’s really enjoyed working with him. “He knows what we’re going through. He totally understands where we’re coming from and he’ll do anything to help us.” “He knows a lot about elite sport and how much it takes to get where you want to be,” said Kennedy. “He’s been really helpful.” Ellis said being involved with the programme had been a big learning curve for him. “I don’t even attempt to try and tell them what to do in their specific sport. I do more learning in that regard, but there are a number of things around the life skills and work ethics that transcend all sports, that I can give advice about.” He wants Canterbury’s programme to be regarded as the best in the country. “It’s a programme that we will look to expand into the future and we’re always looking for new partners and new ways to reach more and more athletes.”

Another Richie steps up for Canty By Andrew Voerman

MIDWAY THROUGH the first half of Canterbury’s 48-9 thrashing of Auckland last Saturday, Richie Mo’unga showed a touch of brilliance. Ten metres inside his own half, with two men available outside him, he opted for a grubber kick. It was scooped up by wing Patrick Osborne, who Mo’unga followed down the field, in anticipation of the offload which duly followed. He then dragged Auckland’s defenders inside, before making a pass to Adam Whitelock who scored a try, the second of Canterbury’s six on the day. Mo’unga said the team’s attacking display was a testament to the forwards working hard and all the players nailing their individual roles. “It’s easy for me to be on the end of it and do what I can.” He started the game at fullback, with the experienced Tyler Bleyendaal in his preferred first-five role. Switching between the two positions was tough, but worth it, he said. “Having two positions – 10 and 15 – you’re more valuable, and you can play at the back and in the front and you learn more skills and

stuff, so it’s good.” It was less than a year ago that Mo’unga burst onto the scene, scoring 27 points during a 72-7 demolition of Manawatu in his starting debut. He got the call-up on that occasion when Dan Carter, Tom Taylor, Colin Slade and Bleyendaal were all unavailable, due to a mixture of international commitments and injuries. It’s a list of players that shows

Canterbury has a penchant for producing quality first-five eighths. Mo’unga is the latest off the production line, and feeling increasingly comfortable as his second season in the red and black gets under way, “It’s awesome. I’m learning heaps. I’m a bit more relaxed, and with a couple of games last year, and some experience under my belt, I sort of know what it takes in terms of preparation and training –

where I have to be at physically and mentally.” He only turned 20 in May, and while he’s in the middle of his busiest season yet, he said he wasn’t feeling any worse for wear. “I’m not even really thinking about my body. I just want to get out there and play. I guess that’s what your mindset is when you’re young.’’ Mo’unga was a member of the New Zealand side that finished

third at the under-20 world cup in June, alongside Canterbury teammates Mitchell Drummond and Tom Sanders. He said it was everything he’d ever dreamed of. “It was a great opportunity to get in with guys (my) own age that are the best in the country in rugby.” His Canterbury coach, Scott Robertson, was an assistant with the under-20 team, and is well aware of Mo’unga’s potential. Asked whether he was a first-five who can play fullback, or a fullback who can play first-five, Robertson said he can be whatever they need him to be. “We’re really fortunate that he can play both.” “His positional play is outstanding, (he has the) ability to beat a player, and he’s brave.” Mo’unga’s still a young lad with a long career ahead of him, grateful for all the support he receives. “I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for my mum, my dad, and family support, and friends.” He said his parents always get along to games when they can. “It’s huge. They’re always supporting me whether I have a good game or a bad game,” he said. Hopefully, there are more good times than bad ones ahead.
