Reasonably clear skies in Christchurch over Wednesday night and early Thursday morning allowed people to see a rare total lunar eclipse or ‘blood moon’, which occurs when the moon passes into the earth’s shadow. For this to happen, the sun, earth and moon need to be aligned with the earth directly in the middle. The next total eclipse of the moon to be seen from New Zealand will not be until January 31, 2018. There will be partial eclipses in April and September next year. PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER

LABOUR LEADERSHIP contender Grant Robertson’s strong support from Christchurch MPs doesn’t appear to have suffered from the entry of list MP Andrew Little into the race. Wigram MP Megan Woods and Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson yesterday reaffirmed their support for Mr Robertson. Christchurch East MP Poto Williams remained non-committal, saying she would wait to see if anyone else entered the race and consult fellow MPs and local Labour Party members before making her decision. List MP Clayton Cosgrove was not available for comment yesterday. Former leader David Cunliffe resigned following the party’s heavy defeat in last month’s election but immediately declared his intention to stand for the leadership again. Mr Robertson was the first to announce he would challenge for the position. Mr Little, a former Labour Party president and head of its largest affiliated union EPMU, announced his intentions yesterday, ending several days of speculation. He scraped into Parliament after special votes were counted and the result was confirmed on Saturday. Any other leadership contenders have until Tuesday to throw their hat in the ring. The leader will be declared on November 18.

THAT’S ODD A MAN desperate to sell his three-bedroom house in Detroit has said he’d be willing to swap it for an iPhone 6. For months the detached two-storey, three-bedroom building has been on the market but he has been unable to shift the building in the bankrupt Michigan city. Now the owner, who lives in Austria and has never visited the house, has told his estate agent he is willing to exchange the property for the new Apple phone or iPad. He bought the property four years ago hoping to cash in with a quick resale. However, as the city’s fortunes spiralled downwards house values crashed. The home has stood empty since 2010 accruing taxes which will need to be paid by the new owner.

​Closing time for

After more than 40 years of running Christchurch and Kaikoura hotels, Meredith Wilson will pull his last pint on Monday. The popular publican talked with Max Towle about a life behind the bar.

MEREDITH WILSON got to work the other morning and saw a pair of crutches resting behind his bar. “I walked in and said: ‘It’s a miracle!’ Someone’s come in here last night on crutches, had a few drinks, and walked out on their own,” he said. “That’s the power of our grog.” In Wilsons Sports Bar & TAB at noon, Meredith banters with a few locals and reads the paper. A few yards away, a handful of punters watch the races and play the pokies. His upstairs office, found up a claustrophobic winding staircase, is full of boxes and packaged memories. The 69-year-old is moving out. “I’ll miss the place. It’s got everything I want. It’s sporting, it’s got a nice bit of grog, and no druggies,” he says. The hotel, found near the train tracks close to the Hagley Park end of Riccarton Rd, used to be a restaurant. With the TAB’s backing, Meredith took over in 2000. “I can remember as a kid the building was a dress shop. There used to be beautiful ball gowns and dresses in the windows,” he says. “It’s a beautiful old building.” A beautiful old wooden building

publican “That was the end of the surfie problem.” Meredith still owns the site, but left the Blue Pacific that year. In the early-80s, he ran the Prince of Wales Hotel on the corner of Colombo and St Asaph Sts. “The manager was having a bit of trouble with bikies at the time, so I asked if there were any deals going,” says Meredith. “He said I could have the place if I cleaned it up. The day before I arrived, it was firebombed through the dining room window. “Those days things were pretty rugged, but we toughed it out.” He says there’s no real trick to dealing with difficult patrons. “You can’t strong arm people, you’ve just got to talk to them . . . sort of say ‘how’s it going?’ I never had to resort to violence.” After more than 40 years in the business, Meredith says he’s mastered the art of first impressions. “You have to make a quick decision when someone walks in the place. You’ve only got a couple of seconds to decide whether to serve them. Once they’re in here, they’re much harder to turf out.” From the Prince of Wales, Meredith ran the Grenadier Cafe and Bar with John Harrington of Harrington breweries in 198687. He sold up just before the ’87 stock market crash. In the 90s, he ran The Swamp (the Islington Tavern) and the Occidental Hotel in Hereford St. “I’m Canterbury born and bred – I’ve got red and black in my blood,” he says. At Wilsons, Meredith has tried to build “a sort of Cheers-type place.” “The good thing about the hotel industry is that when you have a bar, your mates and people you know come in and say ‘hey’.” But he believes he’s seen the best years of hotel-keeping. “Over time you see the buses going past getting fuller and fuller and fuller. Everyone is pre-loading these days,” he says. Wilsons was robbed in July and

5 minutes with Donald McCaw’s great Donald McCaw doesn’t buy into the pushy parent cliche. He and his wife raised a daughter who represented the Canterbury Tactix in netball, and a son who last weekend became the most capped All Black of all time, but plays down his part for their successes. The proud father spoke to Max Towle about farming, sporting genes, and trips to the big games.

about 26 years farming on my own account. Me and my wife Margaret had two children, Joanna and Richard, who were born in Oamaru and brought up in the valley. What is it about the country life? We just love the life. I guess it’s about the freedom to run your own business. It was always a challenge. It was tough times in the 1980s with the subsidies being removed and Rogernomics, but we survived and I

G’day Don, can you start by telling me a bit about your background? I come from the Hakataramea Valley, on the Waitaki River. I did all my primary schooling locally, then went to secondary school at St Andrew’s College. I then did a diploma in agriculture at Lincoln University. I eventually ended up farming in the valley and I spent

was always proud of the work. Were you a bit of a sportsman in your formative years? I did play at school. I was a very average rugby player. But I tried to do other things as well. I did a few outdoor things

GIFTED: Donald McCaw believes his son and daughter’s sporting genes may come from his wife’s side of the family.

like shooting, hunting, and skiing. But there were always other things to do like jobs. There’s nothing like trying to make a living. Where would you say your kids’ sporting genes come from? Well, Margaret took part in bits and pieces. She played a lot of hockey at school. But her brothers, John and Peter McLay, were both good rugby players and Mid Canterbury reps. Bigsy (John) played more than 100 games for the province. Peter played against the British and Irish Lions. I’ve always been keen on rugby, and watching it. As a youngster in the valley, we had no television and so didn’t have much to do with the game. I do remember my father listening to the 1956 Springboks game on the South Africa tour. That was my first real experience of excitement with sport. I’ve just seen so much rugby now, but I always enjoyed the old Super 10. Then, of course, we found ourselves involved when Richard started playing. After all the games and nailbiting, are you still keen on rugby? I wouldn’t jump up in the middle of the night to watch

a game between other sides like Argentina v South Africa. I am interested, but there are other things to do. Where did you watch the All Blacks’ loss in South Africa? Margaret and I watched it in the living room. Oh well, it’s just one of those things that happens in sport. But we’ve done so well over the years. Did you push the kids into sport? We certainly didn’t push them, they took off by themselves. Joanna and Richard went to primary school in the district, then Otago for their secondary schooling. Richard went to Otago Boys’ High School. We sort of stood in the background and were amazed at their drive and how well they did. We always took them to swimming sports and whatever else was on. As parents, our job was dropping them off somewhere then doing something else. How have your nerves improved over the years? Once I got over the very high heart rates at the start, you just sit back and take it as it comes. But you do get quite anxious when they first run out for a game.

We are lucky as All Blacks parents to get a ticket to go to the game, but they’re not special tickets. If the game is in Canterbury, we’re on the 22. But if the game’s in Australia, we’re up in the far corner as far as you can be from the field. Overseas we meet up with friends and people who we network with. Like in Wales or Scotland, we’ve got people who we know who we can stay with. Do you talk much rugby with the families of other players? There’s not a lot of conversation about the game itself. We wouldn’t talk about who’s doing well or who might be dropped, for instance. We’ve certainly met a lot of parents, but the conversation is more about ourselves and what we do. We’ve made some really great friends from it. You don’t really see them before the game, except at the odd social function. It’s hard to single out anyone who we’re really close with because we’re all a big group. Richie’s private life is often splashed across the tabloids. How do you reckon he copes with the attention? He probably looks to be coping. We’re always concerned with his

privacy. Whenever he goes out for meals, the public want to be a part of him. It worries us a little bit. He can never be able to live a normal life. But he is bright enough to cope with it most of the time. He enjoys his flying when he can get away from it all. He loves mixing with people with other interests, like golf. It’s good to get away from people who just see him as a rugby player. He’s got a lot of old school friends and mates from the early days when he played for the Otago Colts. What do you do now? I work as a farm liaison officer for Central Plains irrigation. I go out there and get all the land deals sorted. Margaret and I are based in West Melton. It’s a 4ha plot so there’s a bit of maintenance in our spare time – there’s always plenty to do over the weekend. My wife has just retired as a part-time teacher. Joanna is married and is a dairy farmer’s wife. She’s got a beautiful little child. What hobbies do you have? I’m into gliding and flying, generally. I’m a pilot and have been one for many years. I still have a little fiddle in a helicopter now and again. I’m also keen on my gardening.

Clean bill of health By Max Towle

CHRISTCHURCH restaurants, cafes, and takeaways passed food hygiene inspections with flying colours last year, with only one closure notice, which was later lifted, being issued. Out of the 1842 food premises registered with the city council, a takeaway was the only one issued a closure notice between July 1, 2013 and June 30 this year, after it failed cleanliness regulations. It reopened days later when it passed a further inspection. Unlike other local authorities, the city council does not have the power to close premises. That lies with Christchurch-based Ministry for Primary Industries food act officers. Information released to The Star by the MPI showed a total of five closure notices have been issued in the city since June 2011. There were nine closure notices issued in Wellington in the year ending June 30. The city has around 1300 food premises. Hospitality New Zealand Canterbury president Peter Morrison said Christchurch premises were simply cleaner. “[The officers] are so strict down here and try to keep to such a high standard,” he said. “I think a lot of the buildings are newer, and the new bars and restaurants are being opened by experienced people who have been in the industry for awhile.”

Campaign to lower family violence over Christmas By Gabrielle Stuart

POLICE HAVE launched a twomonth Canterbury-wide campaign aiming to prevent a spike in family violence over Christmas. It is the first campaign of its kind in the country. Nicola Woodward, chief executive of AVIVA, formerly Christchurch Women’s Refuge, said cases of violence became worse over the Christmas period, because of extra stress on families. “Christchurch and the surrounding communities continue to carry the effects socially of the earthquakes. And when we combine those with the additional stresses of Christmas, the extra expenses and, for some, excessive alcohol consumption, it exache management team at erbates Onyx Homes are arguably Christchur the problems. ” unrivaled in the home building sector.

REAL ESTATE agents are among our least respected occupations, consistently ranking in the bottom four of UMR’s annual Mood of the Nation survey, alongside politicians, share brokers and investment bankers. This negative public perception is one of the reasons why it has been mandatory for agents to be licensed since 2008. Licensing means they are legally required to follow rules and provide a certain level of service. The licensing regime is run by the Real Estate Agents Authority which responds to complaints against agents. Consumer NZ says professional-

Sue Chetwin conduct and client-care rules oblige agents to act in the best interests of their clients. Agents are also obliged not to mislead or withhold information from buyers or sellers, put them under unfair pressure, and to act in good faith. Consumer NZ chief executive Sue Chetwin said the negative perception of agents was not unreasonable. She said probably the biggest pitfall faced by people dealing with an agent was simply believing everything they said. “If you have any doubts, raise them,” Ms Chetwin said. “The agent is obliged to disclose everything they know about a

You trust them to buy, sell or rent perhaps your most important asset – your home. So how do you find the right real estate agent and what can you do when they don’t meet your expectations? Tom Doudney reports

Real estate agents

or selling property Over the past three years, REAA has received 2204 complaints, nationwide, of which it resolved 1120 (51 per cent) directly and referred the other 1084 to Complaints Assessment Committees. While most were made by buyers and sellers, other agents and potential buyers were also among the complainants. CACs are made up of three people with expertise in law, real estate and consumer affairs. At least one member must be a lawyer with at least seven years experience. They have the ability to impose fines and award limited compensation in cases of unsatisfactory conduct. If the case is more serious, it is ruled as misconduct and referred to the Real Estate Agents Disciplinary Tribunal, appointed by the Ministry of Justice. For unsatisfactory conduct, CACs can order agents to put right their errors, including by payment, however, they do not have the power to award compensation for damages which must instead be sought through other legal means. Of the 1084 cases heard by a CAC, 392 were eventually found to be cases of unsatisfactory conduct and 50 were found to be misconduct.

TALKING THE TALK: Buyers and sellers are advised to engage a lawyer rather than relying on the real estate agent’s word alone.

New Zealand’s 13,300 licensed agents generate an average of 735 complaints a year of which, based on past experience, 147 are upheld as either unsatisfactory conduct or misconduct. However, Consumer NZ says these upheld complaints are the tip of the iceberg as many dissatisfied clients don’t make a complaint. “Many people won’t complain,” Ms Chetwin said.

Before buying the property, the complainants asked whether repair work had been carried out under EQC claims. They were assured by Ms Sladen that it hadn’t and that anything connected with EQC claims would be handed over to the purchaser. Ms Sladen had accepted the assurances of the vendors, who did not tell her they had been paid out for the 2010 claim. The CAC found that the information provided by the licensee was both incomplete, and incorrect; and that the complainants were misled by the licensee. The complainants said they had incurred expenses of $16,454.25 rectifying the work which the vendors received the EQC payment for but did not undertake. The complainants had previously received a Dispute Tribunal decision in their favour for $15,000, the maximum available under that jurisdiction. However, that had still left them with a shortfall of $1455.25.

“They will accept they have had a rum deal, or the real estate business will sort it out so it never becomes public.” CASE STUDY Earlier this year, Harcourts agent Sandra Sladen was found guilty of unsatisfactory conduct and slapped with a $2500 fine after failing to disclose that EQC had already paid out $8123.98 for a Christchurch property she was selling.

FACT BOX Consumer NZ has the following advice for anyone looking to hire a real estate agent.

1000 Table + 4 Chairs in Victorian Oak

• Before you hire an agent read the REAA’s Get Smart Guide (available on line at www.reaa. govt.nz). • Make sure you’re hiring a licensed real estate agent – ask to see evidence of their licence and check the REAA’s online register of licensed agents. • Check the REAA’s website to see if an agent (or their firm) has had complaints against them. • Insist that your agency contract include the standard clauses recommended by the REAA and the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand. • Read the agency agreement closely and suggest changes if you think the terms are unfair. • Raise any complaint against an agent with them or their firm first. Then if you’re not satisfied, take your complaint to the REAA. • If you believe you have good grounds for doing so, use the REAA’s licensing procedures to object to an agent’s application for a licence or for licence renewal.

JURY’S OUT : Pomeroy’s patron Rolf Holmsen admires Chris Cairns’ Black Caps shirt. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Cairns shirt will go if court case lost By Max Towle

A POPULAR Christchurch pub will take down a shirt worn by Chris Cairns from its wall if the under fire former cricketer is found guilty of perjury. The shirt, worn by Cairns (right), in a Chappell Hadlee Trophy match in 2004, is one of two pieces of sporting memorabilia displayed in the Pomeroy’s Old Brewery Inn on Kilmore St. The other is a Christchurch Football Club jersey worn by Richie McCaw in 2004. Pub owner Steve Pomeroy said a few customers had mentioned taking Cairns’ shirt down since he was reported for allegedly match fixing and charged over perjury claims. Cairns faces a full trial next year. He has denied any involvement in corruption.

Mr Pomeroy said he had not followed Cairns’ appearances in the London courts. “Has he been proven guilty? I don’t know. If there were more complaints, we’d think about taking it down. If he is found guilty, I think we certainly will,” he said. “But he’s always been a controversial guy.” The shirt was bought by Mr Pomeroy about five years ago at a fundraising auction for a friend with cerebral palsy, the proceeds of which went towards building wheelchair ramps in his house. Mr Pomeroy said he was not the biggest cricket fan in the world, but said: “The local cricket team comes into the pub and we sponsor their shirts. I like the game.” He said the pub owned other sporting memorabilia should the Cairns shirt need to be replaced.

IS IT OKAY TO FREEZE MILK IN ITS ORIGINAL CONTAINER? Yes, but you need to allow for expansion, so tip off a cup or so from a full container before resealing and freezing. Milk is safest thawed in the fridge, but you can hold the container under cold water or defrost in the microwave so long as you use the milk immediately. Thawed milk is best used for cooking, as quality may be impaired. Otherwise consider UHT milk, canned milk or milk powder.

Inquiry into pier lights outage By Gabrielle Stuart

CITY COUNCIL staff are looking into why lights at New Brighton Pier were not fixed faster. More than 20 panes of glass were broken by vandals at the pier last month, causing about $40,000 worth of damage. The lights in the area were not working, in spite of several requests to have them fixed, The Star revealed on Wednesday. That meant security cameras were not able to pick up anything when the vandalism happened.

The city council received a complaint about the broken lights about six months ago. But city council parks unit manager Andrew Rutledge said outages reported in May and June had been repaired. He said a different outage was reported on September 16, less than a week before the vandalism happened. But Salt on the Pier owner John Ktenidis said the lights had been broken for months. He asked for the lights to be fixed more than two months before the incident, and did not

hear anything back. “It’s pure negligence. It was clearly a job that needed to be done, whether it was days or weeks or months, and arguing over that isn’t going to help.” City councillor David East said the response from the city council had not been good enough. “You would think that a tenant of the council should be able to ring in and get some action.” The Burwood-Pegasus Community Board plan to raise the issue of general maintenance in the area with the city council in a deputation.

Mr Rutledge said the New Brighton Library and the New Brighton Pier had separate maintenance contractors for repairs. “This was reviewed and it was shown that some public reports of outages and requests for repairs sometimes get miscoded due to confusion when describing the two facilities. This  can sometimes lead to a delay in their transfer to the correct contractor.” He said the situation had been reviewed to “ensure more clarity” between the contractors.

VANDALISM: An inquiry is under way to find out why security lights were not working when damage was caused to the pier. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Post-mortem on foetus A POST-MORTEM has been completed on the foetus found in the Bromley wastewater treatment plant on October 1. The gestation of the foetus is estimated to have been about 18-20 weeks, a period that would be incompatible with the ability to sustain life, police said yesterday. The matter has been referred to the coroner. There are still no indications that anything suspicious has occurred but police would like to identify the mother to ensure that she has received the appropriate support and medical care. Police are appealing for the mother or any members of the public, medical profession or support groups that may have been in contact with her to please phone police on 363 7400.

Lights add security to property Property lighting is practical. Lights on a pathway will help you and your friends find their way to your front door in the dead of night, and will help deter unwanted guests. But it doesn’t have to stop there. Lights can also be fun, dramatic and creative. When you add lighting to your property, follow the philosophy ‘‘less-is-more’’ and you will add a new dimension. Place a light behind a pot or statue, this will create interesting silhouettes. Add a submersible light to your water ponds or water feature. Place down lights in a tree to create pools of light on featured plants or ornaments. Lights will let you enjoy the garden at night throughout the year. The first step to lighting up your property is understanding bulb basics. LEDs are more energy efficient than halogens and can last for 15 years plus — that’s up to 100 times longer than other types of globes. You can mix LED and halogen fittings on a single transformer line. Globe conversion kits are available to switch a variety of halogen lights to LED. To install low-voltage lights, gather lighting (pre-packed kit or parts, including transformer, cable

Then lay out your cable around the desired area from the point where it will connect to the transformer. When the cable runs over exposed areas, you should fix it in place with a cable clamp or a few cable nails. Low-voltage cable doesn’t need to be deeply buried in trenches as mains voltage lines do. Lay out the cable along the desired line and, using a spade, cut a line to spade blade depth. With each cut, lean the blade back to create a slightly V-shaped trench.

Push the cable into the trench and stand on the side of the trench to close it back up. To attach lights to the cable, undo clips on the end of the short cable attached to the light. These clips vary in appearance, but they all tap into power in the same way (conductive metal spikes concealed in the clip pierce the cable). Put cable inside the clip and close it up. This causes the spikes to bite into the wire and pick up current. Connect the cable to the transformer, ensuring you follow any directions on the transformer and its packaging. Plug transformer into a weatherPRACTICAL: Lighting up your house provides an element of security. proof and switch on.

established they self-sow readily. Cape gooseberries prefer a position in full sun. They will grow in a wide range of soils, but, usefully, do well in poor, drought-prone soils, too. They are less tolerant of too much moisture, which can cause fungal problems, pockmarking the leaves and rotting roots and stems. Prune the plants hard in spring and pinch out the new shoots to encourage bushy growth. Cape gooseberries are a native of South America. They made their way to Australia (then New Zealand) via Cape Town in South Africa, hence the “cape” in their name. They are also known as ground cherries, poha and sometimes physalis, from their botanical name Physalis peruviana – a name that doesn’t do the berries or their lanterns justice, since Physalis means bladder. The ripe berries are high in vitamins A, B and C, and contain iron, calcium and potassium. Don’t eat unripe, green berries, because they are poisonous. Cape gooseberries also contain high levels of pectin, making them popular for jam making. An excellent setting agent, pectin’s presence also means you must be careful not to boil the jam too long or it will become too dark and thick. Two plants should provide enough berries to make a reasonable batch of jam – provided you don’t eat too many of the berries beforehand!

3 TOP MIXed PeTuNIAS

APE gooseberries are not the most attractive plants in my garden. They grow to an open, sprawling, 1m height, with fleshy, grey-brown stems jutting out at all angles. Their sparse, heart-shaped, furry leaves start off light grey-green, then develop a yellow-brown tinge as they age. Their bell-shaped, yellow flowers with brown centres are a step up, but the fruit is the high point. Each fruit develops inside a lantern that starts off green and changes to a papery-textured pale brown as the fruit inside ripens to a golden orange orb, about the size of a cherry tomato. With the husks peeled back (but left attached) and the bottom of the sweettasting fruit dipped in chocolate, they make a treat fit for the finest gourmet table. Cape gooseberry plants are easily grown from seed, sown in spring, after all danger of frost has passed. Although the plants are perennials, they are frost tender, so need to be treated as annuals in colder areas. The seed should be sown as early as possible to allow the three to four months needed from sowing until the fruit is ready for harvest. In warmer climates, late sowing means the plant won’t set fruit until its second season. Seed is available from specialist seed suppliers, and plants are sometimes available from garden centres.

Save seed for next season Place the ripe berries in a jar, add a small amount of water, and gently mash them. Top up the jar with warm water, cover it with a piece of cling film, with ventilation holes poked in it, and place the jar on a warm window ledge. Leave it for a couple of days, then add more water to the jar and stir the contents vigorously. This causes the pulp to float, while the viable seed falls to the bottom of the jar. The pulp can be poured off, leaving the seed in the jar. Remove the cape gooseberry seed, spread it on a tray covered with greaseproof paper, and place in a warm, airy place to dry. Seed can be stored for up to a year in a light-proof paper packet inside an airtight container, placed in a cool, dry position. The same process can be used for any similar berries.

Avoid eating the green, unripe berries, as they are poisonous.

2kg ripe cape gooseberries 1 1/3 cup water 2kg sugar

Boil the fruit and water for around 20 minutes, then use a potato masher or blender stick to break up the pulp. Bring the mixture back to the boil and add the sugar. Continue to stir for up to 20 minutes. Drop a small amount of the mixture on to the back of a cold saucer and when this forms a skin it’s ready. Pour jam into sterilised jars and cover.

The Alphabet House – an exceptional thriller I’ve read a number of Jussi’s books and this one is exceptional and very different from the Scandinavian-based thrillers that I have read previously. The setting is (initially) during World War 2, involving James and Bryan, best mates since childhood, and now together on a mission above Germany in 1944. Their plane is attacked but they manage to parachute out of it, although James is wounded. They’re as deep as you can get in enemy territory, so they resort to a risky but ultimately successful ruse by chambering aboard a hospital train taking injured and traumatised Nazi troops to a hospital. In so doing, they kill two Germans and assume their identities. While this works, they end up in a special unit for mentally impaired soldiers. As a result, they’re subjected to shock treatment, radical

He hasn’t been back to Germany since his escape but on a whim, decides to see if he can find out anything about his friend, who he had to leave behind because of the state that he was in. The next chapters are charged with electricity and plot twists that make The Alphabet House a really special read.

A thriller from the crook’s perspective

The Wolf Written by Lorenzo Carcaterra Reviewed by Tony Nielsen

The Wolf was my first read on Kindle as I set out on a fiveweek journey around Europe. I enjoyed the experience more than I thought I would, although nothing will ever replace the real thing. The Wolf is an excellent read and Lorenzo Carcaterra writes a crisp, well-paced thriller. What struck me in particular is that we don’t get to read many thrillers written from the crook’s perspective, which is a point of

difference here and which works well. The main character is a high level crime boss and very likeable. His comrades in arms are other operators in the same business, out to make a buck or a billion at others’ expense. His world is turned upside down when his wife and two daughters are killed by terrorists on a plane. He then realises that targeting them for revenge will be good for business, as their activities are also enemies to both his legit businesses as well as his criminal ones.

Mankell at his best

Italian Shoes Written by Henning Mankell Reviewed by Tony Nielsen

As anyone who knows me will be aware I am a huge Henning Mankell fan and I am pretty sure that this was the last book of his that I hadn’t read. This is not a Kurt Wallander story but a stand-alone dramatic novel with a heavy emphasis on aging, death, grief and taking responsibility (or not) for one’s

actions. Mankell drills deeply into these concepts, and while that means the going can be heavy, the writing is superb. It’s about a 60-something guy who has chosen isolation as his reaction to a catastrophic mistake he made as a surgeon. He has dealt with his isolation stoically but then a woman he abandoned decades earlier appears to visit, and ultimately to make him aware that he has a daughter.

Yaris up for challenge By Ross Kiddie

THE BATTLE in New Zealand’s small car market has just intensified. Two of the major challengers in that segment have recently released newgeneration models. First it was Honda with the Jazz, now Toyota has landed the latest Yaris. The Jazz has been the subject of a recent evaluation in these columns, the Yaris is a worthy challenger. While sales in the small car segment have suffered a little in recent years thanks to a desire for small SUVs, it is still a key area for nearly all manufacturers. Toyota has slugged it out for years achieving volume sales with Starlet, Echo and latterly Yaris. And if you take into account preowned and imported sales of Vitz then Toyota here is looking pretty comfortable. The new Yaris hatchback hasn’t lost sight of its design concept, it is small at just under 4m yet it allows for cabin space which is generous for a small car. The Yaris is also functional and trendy, with a stylish, cheeky shape. The newcomer lands much as before with two

In ZR form the Yaris sits at $28,990 with automatic transmission, the range starting at $22,990 for the 1.3-litre manual, and $26,990 for the first of the 1.5-litre models. The engine is rated at 80kW with 141Nm of torque. It is coupled to a four-speed gearbox which has ratios that doesn’t restrict engine performance.

W

hile we like to think that our homes are our castles, they may not be as secure as we believe. If you want to know how safe your home is, experts have a simple suggestion – try to burgle yourself. If you can break in easily, so can anyone else, and it may be time to revisit how to keep your possessions, your home and your family safe. Some common sense advice simply means making it as difficult as possible for the opportunist thief. For instance, never leave your home unlocked, even for a short time. Don’t leave messages for family or tradespeople taped to the front door – it’s like advertising that the house is empty and there could be a key under the mat. If you really need to leave a spare key outside, make sure it is well hidden and well away from the front door. One option is to place it in a waterproof container and bury it or hide under rocks; others are to purchase a lock box with a code or leave it to trusted neighbours. If you’re going on a holiday, don’t tell the whole world you will be away on social media. Make your home appear lived in – timer switches will turn lights and TVs on and off so it appears as if someone is there. Let the neighbours know when you are away and ask them to keep an eye on your property. They may even empty your mailbox and open and close your curtains. Join the local Neighbourhood Support scheme – they have plenty of tips on how to be safe. It’s also important to look at the hardware in your home. Sensor lighting is an excellent deterrent, and check your locks. If you lose your keys or move into a new home, have them changed and make sure you include a deadbolt which can’t be opened with a credit card. Consider having an alarm installed – there are plenty of excellent choices. The same attitude to vehicles will help reduce the risk of having items stolen from your car or having it stolen. An effective alarm system, always keeping it locked,

hiding valuables from sight and making sure you have lockable fuel cap and wheel nuts are great ways to deter thieves. Across the board, the NZ Police’s advice is to mark property clearly and record serial numbers, whether it is a small electronic device or a boat. If the worst happens, you will at least be able to claim insurance.

Looking to buy your first home? Looking to buy your first home? Congratulations! There’s is a lot to take in when you start out, so here is an overview of some key things to consider when you’re buying property.  Your deposit. Have you got enough?  Now’s the time to think about how much you want to spend and start a savings plan to reach the deposit you need. The ultimate goal is to save 20% of the property value. It’s ok to feel like that’s out of reach, it’s a daunting figure. But don’t be put off, some banks will lend up to 90% of the property value, meaning you might only need to save 10% for the deposit.  Your borrowing capacity. How much can you borrow?

Appears EVERY WEEK in

 The maximum amount you can borrow is called your borrowing capacity. You can maximise the amount you borrow by paying off debt, reducing your expenditure and staying on top of your finances.  Are you maximising your KiwiSaver?

We’re for Christchurch

Especially if you have already been paid out by your insurance company. I have a large number of buyers keen to buy now, “as is, where is”.

 KiwiSaver is a voluntary work-based savings scheme designed to utilise the existing PAYE (pay as you earn) tax system. KiwiSaver includes a first home deposit subsidy which, after three years of saving, provides a first home deposit subsidy of $1,000 per year, up to a maximum of $5,000.

 Get pre-approved and get shopping  Ready to start house hunting? A formal pre-approval from a broker takes into account your income, debts and credit history as well as any mortgage insurance you’ll need to pay if you’re borrowing more than 80% of the value of the property. Your pre-approval generally lasts three to six months, assuming your financials stay the same. You can shop confidently knowing your limit and having a green light when you find the one.

Are you selling your property privately? The Star has some fantastic cost effective packages available for people selling their property themselves.

2: OPEN SEASON BY DAVE WITHEROW Lyrical and erudite, Dave Witherow has always captured for his readers a New Zealand that only few get to experience, and in Open Season, his waggish and charming new collection of stories, the pursuit of the trout is richly interwoven with meditations and digressions on life in general — and not just those peculiar to fishing. Throughout the penetrating, concise mind of the hunter, the grace of the fly-caster, and the cool-headed approach to a river crossing are brilliantly balanced with the antics and utter joy of the author and his fishing mates. Open Season is the perfect read for the keen angler, the armchair traveller and the many tourists who venture to New Zealand just for the season. And those who appreciate a master story teller. We have three copies of this book to give away.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to become a rockstar of the rebuild then get in touch! (previous applicants welcome)

Woodford Glen is special. It has an atmosphere that has evolved from a long history and tradition with third generation fans and competitors continually showing support. The bullring surroundings of the Glen bring a vitality and excitement to the entertainment it provides – the thunder and vibrations of the engines and the colour and spectacle of highly polished race cars as they race under the lights of the oval. With eighteen shows scheduled to run from October 25th through to Easter weekend fans will be treated to one of the Glen’s biggest seasons in its long and proud 40 year history. It is fitting that the iconic Kaiapoi club recently won a number of awards at the New Zealand Speedway awards held at Te Papa museum in Wellington. The highlight of the evening was at the end when the club was awarded the prestigious ‘Speedway of the Year’ award. Other awards won include ‘website of the year’ and ‘race programme’ of the year.

OPEN 7 DAYS

Five first-fives too many THIS CANTERBURY season has gone from one extreme to the other. Lose to Taranaki in New Plymouth on Sunday, and it will be four defeats in a row, making this their worst – equal season since their purple patch began in 2008, tied with 2011. If there’s a good omen, it’s that they also won the competition that year, but four losses in a row and four spread throughout a season are two very different scenarios. This isn’t what they promised in their early outings – the 48-9 win over Auckland, the 58-27 win over Waikato, and the 48-3 win over Northland – and a look at what’s happened to their No 10 jersey helps tell the story as to why. The Waikato game would turn out to be first-choice first-five Tyler Bleyendaal’s last, as he suffered a prolapsed disc in his neck. Colin Slade was the first replacement, against Northland, but was only available for one week around his All Blacks duties, so 19-year-old Richie Mo’unga was forced to assume the position. He only started one game – the narrow win over Otago – but that was because Tom Taylor had recovered from a facial injury in the meantime.

From there, it should have been smooth sailing, but alas. Aaron Cruden’s night out in September may have proved to be the undoing of this year’s Canterbury side. If he doesn’t miss his flight to Argentina with the All Blacks, Taylor is never called up. Instead, he would have played the last five games at first-five, giv-

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ing the team some much-needed continuity. (Let us assume, for the sake of this argument, that he wouldn’t have been otherwise injured) Mo’unga took his second game in charge – the loss against North Harbour – before Scott Robertson called up his fifth first-five of the season.

HAVE YOUR SAY

How would you rate Canterbury’s ITM Cup campaign? Where do you think things have gone wrong? Let me know by emailing andrew. voerman@christchurchstar.co.nz

for someone to wear No 10, an All Black legend like Dan Carter isn’t the worst you could do. But when he’s limited to 40 minutes, and takes a knock to his shin early on, he’s a far cry from his best. That knock saw him ruled out of last Saturday’s game, and so Mo’unga ran the cutter once again. Carter has also been ruled out this weekend, but both Slade and Taylor are back, with the All Blacks having a week off, and so the merry-go-round continues. If they slot in quickly, and some of the injured outside backs return, Canterbury might still have a shot. In this crazy season, you wouldn’t put it past them.

YES, we are OPEN as usual throughout our expansion

▌READERS’ ▌ LETTERS Last weekend, Richie McCaw passed Colin Meads as the All Black who has played the most games, sparking a debate as to is the best ever. These were your views: Allan Scammell – My number one pick is Andrew Mehrtens. Andrew could organise and run the back line where the exciting plays were generated, score tries, and amassed a record number of points at the time through conversion of tries and penalties. He also gave the finger salute to a South African crowd, brilliant. My second choice is Richie McCaw, his record number of tests are testament to his greatness, as a captain and leader of the All Blacks he’s outstanding, but what puts him just behind Andrew is his lack of points from conversions and penalties. My third choice is the great Colin Meads, there is no doubt about his place in All Black folklore, but his record number of games were not all test matches. Mark Shields – McCaw might have more caps than Meads but to say he is better is just ludicrous. He is not even the best No 7 to play for the All Blacks – that honour goes to the great Michael Jones. Even Zinzan Brooke and Josh Kronfeld were better players. •Donald McCaw, p4, p5

Bulls’ mission impossible By Andrew Voerman THE CANTERBURY Bulls know their chances of making the national premiership final are slim, but they’re keeping the focus on getting a win tomorrow. If their season is to continue past their game against the Northern Swords at Denton Oval, they will likely need to win it by more than 90 points. Assuming the Bulls, the Counties Manukau Stingrays and the Akarana Falcons all win their games this weekend, the two teams to contest the final on October 18 will be decided on points difference. If that turns out to be the case, the Stingrays, with an unassailable differential of 180, will be in, and it’s the Falcons, not the Bulls, who are best-placed to join them. Heading into this weekend, the Falcons sit on plus-126, while the Bulls are on plus-34, meaning they need to beat the Swords by 92 points, plus whatever the Falcons win their game over the Central Vipers by. It’s so difficult as to be near-impossible, but there is a faint glimmer of hope. The bottom-placed Swords have been the whipping boys of the competition, and in their last game, against the Falcons, they shipped 58 unanswered points in the second half alone. If the Bulls can manage that tomorrow, and do it in the first half as well,

they’ll be well on their way to pulling off a miracle. Coach Darrell Coad said the team was full of hope. “Funnier things have happened in sport – it is a big task ahead of us, and we’ve got to score a lot of points.” He said it would be a shame if they missed out on the final on points difference. “To finish so to speak at the top of the table, and to not the make the final, I suppose that’s something they might like to look into in the future. “We beat (Akarana), and weren’t that far behind Counties, so to finish third would be fairly unfair way of us finishing our season,” Coad said the team had been in good spirits at training this week. “They want to go out and play well at home in their last game and put on a good display . . . for everyone that’s been there for us this campaign.” He felt the loss against Counties would prove instructive for the Bulls in the future. “It was a bit of a learning curve. We need tor realise that against these bigger sides, we need to make our one-on-one tackles.” Team: Ken Tofilau, Vinnie Paul, Erwin Sauni, Bruce Havea, Cyrus Timo-Latu, Toi Sepuloni, Izic Placid, JJ Smith, Manu Weepu, Chris Bamford (c), Will Tafua, Corey Lawrie, Agaese Fiso.
