Damage from hill run-off big issue BY GABRIELLE STUART

Traffic safety, river pollution and erosion problems were some of the issues St Martins residents raised during a community clinic last week. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board has planned a series of monthly sessions across the ward, where members will be available to talk about any issues or concerns. The first was held at New World St Martins last Tuesday. The next session will be held in Addington. Community board chairman Paul McMahon said it was a good way to see what issues were important to the community. “We didn’t get a lot of engagement with the long-term plan, but we do know people are concerned that council cannot afford the anchor projects.”

“There’s been damage to properties on the hill where they’ve become waterlogged because of water coming from above.” PAUL MCMAHON He said that locally, damage from stormwater run-off was a big issue. “There’s been damage to properties on the hill where they’ve become waterlogged because of water coming from above. The stormwater systems need to be repaired in the hills, because if water runs down the roads it undermines the integrity of the road.” • Turn to page 2

They will paint and decorate a 1.3m giraffe sculpture this month, which will be placed in See public parks and streets over Inside: the summer. The sculptures will then be auctioned, and most of the money they raise will go to charities. Spreydon School’s giraffe has been named Patch – short for People Attached to Christchurch. Over the school holidays, pupils at the school have been collecting favourite pictures of Christchurch, both past and present, which will be used to collage the giraffe. Deputy principal Andrea Stewart said the whole school was taking part. “We’ve already painted his base colour, which is matched to the school uniform colour – so he is wearing the uniform.” The sculpture will be finished and ready to be picked up at the end of the month.

Mrs Stewart said Patch had already become a favourite with the pupils. “At the moment he’s sitting in our office area, and the kids come in and give him cuddles.” She said the project had sparked a lot of interest in giraffes, and the school was planning a trip to Orana Park to visit the giraffes there this term. Christchurch Stands Tall is organised by Wild in Art, which has organised similar

animal-themed arts trails in 25 other cities across the world. This will be the first in New Zealand. As well as the schools’ sculptures, there are also 46 giraffes being created, which are sponsored by businesses and decorated by Christchurch artists. The trail will close in February next year, and 75 per cent of the proceeds will be donated to the Child Cancer Foundation and Life Education Trust.

Hill run-off big issue • From page 1 He said that issue would need to be addressed by the city council, but there were also small issues raised which could be fixed through an email or phone call. The next community clinic will be held in Addington on November 18. Board members also plan to attend events in the area to talk with residents about issues they would like to see addressed in the city council long-term plan. Those include the Cracroft Garage Sale Trail and the Hoon Hay Fiesta.

Mural cost stirs up debate BY GABRIELLE STUART

An artist has been caught up in a dispute over whether a $30,000 mural in the New Brighton mall should have gone ahead. Artist and graphic designer Marie Ockleford created the design for the mural free of charge, because she wanted to do something special for her own community. The city council paid Auckland company Rockbind $30,000 to create the mural. The company has worked on several Christchurch street art works, including the mural near the Bridge of Remembrance. But the mural cost the city council more than $30,000, and the community reaction to it has not been positive. Miss Ockleford said it had been discouraging to hear of a lot of negative feedback about the mural, particularly on social media. “The reaction has been mixed, and there are quite a lot of negative comments. But I suppose you’re always going to get that with public art.” She said most of the comments were about the cost of the mural. Members of the BurwoodPegasus Community Board said they had also heard negative feedback from the community about the cost of the mural. Board member Tim Sintes said he wasn’t against the mural itself, but the money could have been used to solve more urgent prob-

lems in the area. “It’s good, it’s fantastic to have anything done here, but funds are obviously tight right now and there are so many issues we need to deal with.” In February, the city council allocated $30,000 from its Suburban Centres Transitional Budget, for temporary improvements to


Brighton Mall. City council urban design regeneration unit manager Carolyn Ingles said just over $30,000 was paid to the contractor for the materials and installation of the mural. She said the community board was updated on the progress of the plans in July and September, and gave positive feedback.

But chairwoman Andrea Cummings said the community board was briefed about designs for the mural, but not how much it would cost. She tried over several months to find out that information. She said she had been told only a portion of the money would be used for the mural, with the rest paying for wider improvements to the mall. Miss Ockleford said the contractors flew down from Auckland to paint the mural, which took about two weeks. She said that the business was the only one of its kind in the country. “Because (the mural) has to be so hard-wearing to be able to survive the traffic, they use quite specialised materials.” She believed the mural could last about five years before it began to wear away. Although the feedback from the community had not all been positive, she said she was still happy with the way the mural turned out. “The really cool thing is seeing the scale of it. It’s pretty amazing to see something I took from my journal and just drew with a pen – and now it’s huge and I can stand on it.” She said the concept of the design was “sea meets land”. “And the big, bright geometric shapes represent the people, because people in New Brighton are a really bright, eclectic bunch, and they come in all sorts of shapes!”


Neighbour helps catch ‘burglars’ BY GABRIELLE STUART

Three men were caught while trying to burgle a house in Cracroft, thanks to the quick actions of a neighbour. The neighbour noticed people acting suspiciously at the property next door on Tuesday afternoon, and phoned the police. The police went to the house and caught three men, two inside the property and one in a vehicle parked in the driveway.  The house appeared to have been ransacked, and a large amount of property was stacked up near the doorway. “Without the neighbour’s input the men may not have been caught as quickly as they were,” Detective Senior Sergeant Scott Anderson said. “It’s really good to see members of the community looking out for each other and taking quick positive action by alerting police to anything that is out of the ordinary or suspicious.” Cracroft Residents Association secretary Rick Bolch said there was a close knit community in the area, and people looked out for each other. The three men, aged 26, 24 and 23 appeared in the district court last week in relation to the burglary. The investigation into the burglary is still on-going.

Bar owner

Chris ‘Ted’ Casserly, owner of the former Ted’s Bar & Grill in Halswell which was destroyed by fire a year ago, will be boxing in the upcoming Fight for Christchurch 2014 against Winnie Bagoes owner Geoff Cavell to raise money for Cure Kids. Reporter Grace Cabell spoke with him about what has motivated him to fight and how he made the career switch from Pentecostal minister to publican . . . So Chris, I have seen a nickname around, ‘Father Ted’ – what’s the story behind this? Well, before I was a publican, I was a minister for 15 years, a Pentecostal minister. All my mates used to call me Father Chris, till one day I was having a beer with my mate down in Rakaia and someone called me Father Ted, and it has stuck ever since. How did you get into the restaurant game? Is Ted’s the only bar you’ve owned? Yeah, it is. I’ve been involved in the industry for about 15 years. I used to be the manager at The Fitz, Toast Bar at Sol Square, and then my last sort of gig before I bought Ted’s Bar and Grill was as the general manager at Aikmans. How long had you owned Ted’s Bar and Grill before the fire? Just about 12 months. So, you unfortunately lost the bar in a fire, right? Yeah. It was determined as spontaneous combustion, a freak accident. I was pretty gutted when I lost it. I bought out the receivers. We were losing money for the first six months. I refurbished it and put GAME ON: Chris ‘Ted’ Casserly has been putting in the hard yards to come out on about $600,000 into doing that. We were doing very, very well and had turned the top in the Fight for Christchurch 2014.​

whole place around. Then the fire happened, just as we were coming into summer. The landlord was selling the land so I did look at buying it, but I just can’t. Do you live in Halswell? Yeah, I do at the moment. Have you always lived in Christchurch? Did you grow up here? I was brought up on the mean streets of Aranui. Yeah, I loved it. I went to Aranui High School. I started off at St James Primary School, then Chisnallwood Intermediate then Aranui High School. I see you have some pretty personal motivations for opting into the fight? Yep. I did it for my youngest daughter Courtney, who is 14 now. At the age of two, she was diagnosed with Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome, which is basically a cardio jack of the heart. A normal child’s heartbeat turns at 110 beats per minute and hers was at 280. So she was at very high risk of going into cardiac arrest. At the age of five, she had her first heart surgery at Starship in Auckland. They weren’t able to fix the issue because if they did, she would have had a pacemaker.


Monday October 20 2014

prepares for battle We think her life would have been considerably reduced having that at such a young age. So a new procedure was developed and at seven years of age she had her second heart surgery and they fixed it. How does she feel about you stepping into the ring? She doesn’t want me to fight! But she’s excited about raising the funds for Cure Kids. It’s very dear to her own heart as well. So have you done much boxing before? When I was 13 I used to box out at a working men’s club but that was a long, long time ago! I’m guessing you’ve been training pretty hard, what have you had to do to prepare? Well, I’m doing six training sessions a week, as well as now I’ve started to do extra swimming and things like that for fitness. I do three personal training sessions and three two-and-a-half hour boxing circuits of sparring each week. How long have you been training? About two months now. So, Chris, are you nervous? Nope! Nah, look, I’m feeling more and more confident each day. My fitness has improved so much, it’s incredible. I was more than 120kg when I started this journey and I’m down to 108kg now. It’s great – I can actually see my toes now!

So do you have a game plan, or is that a secret? Survive! I just want to get out of the ring without Geoff having done too much damage to my pretty face. Once you step foot in that ring there is nowhere to hide. Neither one of us are going to take a step backwards. What do you think about your opponent, what are your chances? I don’t plan on losing. Yeah, I’ll beat him. Geoff ’s a good mate so it makes this whole challenge just that much different. So it’s a bit of a war then, is it? Geoff and I are calling it the battle of the century. Last week Geoff turned 51 and in November I turn 49. So there is a 100 years between us. So what’s your favourite meal? I shouldn’t say pizza, should I? No, my favourite meal would have to be lasagna. I’d like to say I make the best lasagna in the world, but ‘mumma’ at Venuti does. You really can’t beat her lasagna, it’s the best I’ve ever had. Do you have any other children? I’ve got three kids: my son Alex, who is 21, and I think he’s going to be the next New Zealand barista champion. He placed fifth at the nationals this year. Then there is Kimberley, who is 19, and she is doing a degree in medical imaging at CPIT, and then there

How do the kids feel about you fighting? Well, Courtney doesn’t want me to, Kimberley is a bit unsure but my son Alex, well, he just wants to see me get my head knocked off! Do you have anyone in your life that has really inspired you? Inspiration wise, probably for me it would be Nelson Mandela. I think his ability to succeed out of adversity, and no matter what pushed him down he stood up and succeeded. As the saying goes, what does not kill you makes you stronger, and the only time you ever fail is when you refuse to get up. Bit like you will be in the fight

then? Yeah! You won’t keep me down. So Chris, what’s the first thing you would do if you win? First thing I’m going do when I win (is) I am going to have a beer; I have not had a drink in four

weeks. No drinks for me until after the fight. Hopefully I’m going to have that beer with Geoff if he still loves me. Well good luck, Chris, and thanks for speaking with me today.

FIGHT FOR CHRISTCHURCH FACTS n The Fight for Christchurch will take place on Friday November 22, at Horncastle Arena. n One of the top-drawer clashes is expected to be the restaurant war between Geoff Cavell, owner of Winnie Bagoes, and Chris “Ted” Casserly, of Ted’s Bar & Grill. n The duo aims to raise $100,000 for Cure Kids and has raised more than $20,000 already.

Rugby stalwart passes on BY KYLE KNOWLES A life-long player, coach and patron of the Linwood rugby club was farewelled last week. Ken Jane first laced up his boots for Linwood’s senior side in the 1940s and for the next 70 years gave his heart and soul to the club only giving up coaching in 1995. ‘Jano’ to many, passed away peacefully just short of his 93rd birthday on October 9. The funeral was held at the rugby club he gave so much of his time to last Monday. A hearse took Mr Jane for one final lap of the Linfield rugby ground he spent so many cold winters giving to the club and game of rugby itself. He was born in Christchurch and a life member of the club and was patron of the club for around 24 years. Club president Tane Norton said Mr Jane would have watched the most games involving Linwood teams “by miles”. He would be there watching every team right from the juniors in the morning through to colts, division 2 and the senior side in the afternoon. Mr Norton said Mr Jane coached every team at the club and was the coach that gave him his first spot in Linwood’s top side. For more than three decades Mr Norton said every week Mr Jane would go to his house to talk about the weekend’s action.

LEGENDS: Two legends of the game Ken Jane and Dan Carter meet at a rugby function.

he management team at Onyx Homes are arguably unrivaled in the home building sector. With years of experience and having previously built one of NZ’s largest nationwide building companies, at which time had won more Master Build Awards than any other company in the country, home building has become second nature.


Richard Freeman director of Onyx Homes says “people need to be very careful and it’s a real concern with a lot of these new “so called” building companies entering the market with management at the helm with no clue on how a building company actually runs. We are seeing plumbers and electricians starting up building companies here in

With the client and their best intentions at the forefront of their company philosophy and a driven passion to get it right every-time has been the success of Onyx Homes. From concept design through to handing you the keys of your new home we guarantee you only the best experience. Our sole goal is to deliver a superior product on time with the best price that sets the benchmark for the building industry, and continue to raise the bar.

Sixteen-year-old cancer survivor Aimee-Chantelle Gough has been given the opportunity to take the trip of a lifetime – and she would like to bring her mum. The Aranui High School student hosted a German exchange student, Seike Gruning last year. Seike lived with the family for eight months, and was there when Aimee-Chantelle was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma, a tissue cancer. The girls were the same age, and Aimee-Chantelle said the foreign student became “one of my besties”. She was there when AimeeChantelle was diagnosed and supported her through the series of tests, but had to leave last year just before Aimee-Chantelle started her chemotherapy treatment. Two months ago, AimeeChantelle got a message from Germany. Seike and her family had raised enough for return tickets for the Aranui student to visit them. “I was really excited, I couldn’t believe it,” Aimee-Chantelle said. “It will be a chance in a lifetime.”

LOVE: Cancer survivor AimeeChantelle Gough, 16, is trying to raise enough to bring her mother, Maria Kahukura, with her on a trip to Europe. She plans to travel to Germany in May next year, visiting several cities in Europe, and stopping over in several countries along the way. But she wants to bring her mother along, who she said had been through a lot and would “love it”. To do that, she’s taken on the challenge of raising $4500, which would cover the cost of tickets and expenses for her

mother. She has planned two fundraising concerts at the school, roping in musicians from across the city to play over two nights this week. The concerts will feature musicians from all sorts of genres, including an acoustic reggae band, an orchestral band, a boy band and contemporary jazz musician. The concerts will be held on

Wednesday and Thursday this week, from 6pm at the Aranui High School hall. The evenings will start with a meal at 6pm, and the shows will start at 7pm. Tickets cost $20 including the cost of the meal, and are available at the door on the nights. For more information or to make a donation, phone AimeeChantelle on 021 0241 5606 or email

Diminished hearing has a major impact on


quality of life

earing Technology is fully independent and locally owned since its inception 23 years ago, with clinics in Timaru, Christchurch, Auckland and Whangarei. The benefit of this is that they fit clients with hearing devices best for them, not best for the company. What differentiates Hearing Technology from other audiology clinics is the customerfocused service offered. Clients feel safe and supported through diagnosis to make an informed choice. “Our average clientele is 65 years plus. Their visit to the clinic may be their only visit all week,” says John Robertson. “We try and make it special.” Hearing Technology will even pick patients up if they are unable to drive themselves to the clinic, if they live close by. Hearing Technology utilises the latest wax removal technology. Microsuction is less invasive, removing wax by gentle suction as opposed to the traditional method of syringing out with water, which can be very risky. While Hearing Technology offer free hearing checks. They promote full diagnostic checks which are more in-depth, recommended by doctors and ear, nose and throat specialists. This investigates the entire hearing system all the way to the brain, to

determine where hearing loss has occurred and what the best treatment options are. Good funding is available in New Zealand for hearing aids. People with a history of occupational noise exposure can apply to ACC for funding. MOH subsidies of over $1000 are available for everyone else (if fitting both ears). Tinnitus is a traumatic condition for some people. An extremely specialised area most effectively treated by Auckland University in the north, and now Hearing Technology in the South since one of their audiologists extended their training at the University of Auckland clinic last year. Although there is no cure for tinnitus, there are extremely effective methods of managing the condition. The Shirley branch has extended opening hours to late night Tuesday and Saturday. Phone 0800 142 132. Take advantage of Hearing Technology’s promotional offers: Free wax removal for a year or 12 months’ free batteries (for patients who are already aided); save up to $3000 off a set of hearing aids if purchased before Christmas. Conditions apply for these offers. Contact Hearing Technology for details.

Because it’s not just your eyes that capture beauty.


* Terms & conditions apply. Selected hearing aids purchased before 30th November 2014

Audiologist Katrin Wendel in the Shirley sound-proof booth with one of her patients.

At the age of about 40, I developed pulsatile tinnitus in my right ear. About three months ago I developed pulsatile tinnitus in my left ear and the background tinnitus, which I have had since I was 19, also grew significantly louder. This made me deeply depressed. The high pitched pulsatile tinnitus invaded every aspect of my day and intruded into my sleep. Life was hell. I’ve been using Neuromonics now for

about two months. It still causes me some anxiety from time to time but this is usually momentary. Before, my whole focus was on the sound of the tinnitus. Over time this focus hardwires the brain to “hear” the sound. Neuromonics allows the brain to focus on beautiful, soothing sounds; Neuromonics breaks the circuit so that you’re no longer hardwired to hear the tinnitus. - Brett Clark

s in most bustling cities, the fastest and freshest food to be found in Bangkok is right on the street. These bustling street cafés are world-famous for delicious yet inexpensive meals cooked right in front of their hungry customers. Tuk Tuk Thai Takeaway in Hei Hei is bringing the concept of Bangkok street food to the heart of Christchurch. Chef Joy learnt her trade in this busy, historic city, running her own street café catering for locals and tourists. Now she is bringing her mouth-watering recipes to her very own restaurant/takeaway in Christchurch. If you ask Joy what she likes about having her own shop, she will tell you she loves to cook for other people. “It makes me happy that other people like the food I cook, I like to see their smiles,” she will tell you. She is a foodie at heart. Her focus is on good quality food prepared with fresh ingredients, resulting in a menu full of favourites, such as curries and dishes cooked in the wok like pad thai, spicy drunken noodles and chilli and basil stir-fry. The quality of the ingredients shows through with the choice of succulent tiger prawns and crunchy chef-selected vegetables.

French flavours in a new bakery and cafe A slice of Parisian-style, fresh-baked flavour has come to Woolston with the opening of Terra Viva Bake in early September.


his delightful bakery and café is located in the back section of the premises formerly occupied by Holy Smoke restaurant, a charming old brick building that provides the perfect setting for a food place with a French flair about it. Terra Viva Bake is the “little sister” of the popular Terra Viva Garden Centre café in

Wairakei Road, where talented baker Jeremy Jaeger spent six years before bringing his passion and skills to the new café. “I have always wanted to have a bakery,” Jeremy says, “and this is an ideal situation because there is plenty of space for baking. It was much more limited at Wairakei Rd.” The open-plan design allows customers to see Jeremy and his assistant baker Anna

Tempting: Delicious cakes and pastries make special treats.

Dedicated: Jeanine Lester, left, Vanessa Bell, Anna Black and Jeremy Jaeger of Terra Viva Bake display a selection of breads and pastries.

Black at work, while the delicious aromas wafting through the café will set tastebuds alight as customers fervently scan the baskets and cabinets to decide what tasty items they will choose. The selection is extensive. It includes a wide range of sourdough breads (made from a culture from France), 15 different slices, cakes, bricoches, croissants, muffins, bagels, cheesecakes, patisserie pastries, gourmet pies and deli items, such as quiche and filled rolls. Everything is handmade on the premises. Hot and cold drinks include herbal teas, supreme coffee, spritzers and juices. Customers can enjoy their selection in the café, which provides a quiet spot away from the bustle of Ferry Rd, or take items home. Front of house manager Jeanine Lester says people are often buying special treats to take away and enjoy at their leisure.

Crusty: Some of the wide selection of breads available at Terra Viva Bake.

The entrance to Terra Viva Bake is located in Catherine Street, with off-street parking available. It opens at 7am, Tuesday to Friday, so is the ideal spot to grab a croissant or pastry and coffee on the way to work. It closes at 3pm, Tuesday to Friday, and is open from 9am to 3pm on Saturday.

Trend Alert!!

Curls are making a comeback



nautical waves are the new look for beachy blondes this year. Both clean and wet-look textures work and a centreparting look current.

SLEPT-IN TEXTURE RETRO CURLS - The 70s are major for Spring/Summer and the way to tackle the trend is with retro curls. The look has a modern twist with low side partings and they’re completely frizz-free.

TNA – New Products Tec Ni Art have added 4 new products to their styling range to reflect the changing season and hair trends. They are:

Beach Wave Spray - a texturizing salt spray to be used all over the hair, enhances the “beachy” style and helps set the waves.

Crystal Gloss - A new-generation brilliantine spray, more visible and longer-lasting shine. A formula that doesn’t weigh down the hair, make it wet or leave it oily. Soft Curls - Curls are left looking lightweight and fullbodied. Gives control and shine with a natural feel.

Volume Constructor - Heat Protective Spray. Texturized, supple hair with essential movement, amplified volume, flexible fixing and an ultra convertible style.

Lived-in locks are huge. From beachy waves to soft and sleepy. The key is making this look undone, but well done.

Pureology Curl Complete

Curl Complete’s unique de-stressing formulas with coconut oil and an exclusive AntiFade Complex erase frizz, reduce breakage, revive shape and illuminate shine. The coconut oil-enriched formula with the exclusive AntiFade Complex envelops individual hair strands to: • Re-substance the hair fiber and resurface its stress points • Reduce breakage, replenish moisture and help erase frizz • Protect haircolour and illuminate shine • Revive shape and extend the life of curls and waves

Volunteers Needed The Red Cross recovery team couldn’t function without wonderful volunteers who give their time to help people in Christchurch.


olunteers make a difference every day – from driving a van to simply knocking on doors to see how people are doing. Volunteering is a great way to boost your own wellbeing at the same time as helping your community. Volunteering includes all of the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’: it helps us to connect, be active, take notice, give and keep learning. Red Cross’ Cross Town Shuttle is a volunteer-run service providing transport for people in Christchurch without transport of their own and unable to use public transport. Volunteer drivers and assistants take people to medical appointments and leisure activities, helping to combat social isolation and allow people to continue to lead full lives, regardless of the impact imposed by road works and post-earthquake infrastructure repairs. With plans to expand the service, Red

Cross needs more volunteer drivers and more volunteers to help with community outreach and door-knocking. Red Cross volunteers are a diverse bunch of people who come from a wide range of backgrounds. Before Anthony Seumanutafa was a volunteer on the Cross Town Shuttle, he used the service to help him get across the city. “I find it to be a good way to help and socialise with people, and a way to say thank you to all those for their help – three for the price of one.” This desire to help is what unites volunteers, says Christine Williams, outreach volunteer. “We are able to give time, empathy, a listening ear and often some contact numbers for further assistance to enable the person we visit to continue to move forward.” If you have a little spare time you could give, why not get in touch with New Zealand Red Cross now to find out how you could help make a difference too?

hromium is an essential trace mineral with some surprising health benefits and may have the ability to reduce some of the common health concerns as we age and increase lifespan. Chromium helps regulate blood sugar levels and keep them in the normal range. Chromium appears to improve the insulinresponsiveness of the body and enhance the effectiveness of insulin. Chromium deficiency may be an underlying cause or factor in diabetes. Chromium has been shown to reduce major risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Men with the highest chromium levels were found to be 41 per cent less likely to experience a heart attack. Chromium helps stimulate muscle growth,

Ingredients 4 Chicken breasts 1 Tbsp Fresh ginger 2 tsp Fresh rosemary 3 Tbsp Honey 1 Tbsp Soy sauce 1 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar 2 Garlic cloves 1 Tbsp Oil 1 Onion 2 Capsicums 2 tsp Chilli powder 400g Chopped tomatoes 410g Chickpeas ¾ cup Stock Directions Take skinless, boneless chicken breasts and score chicken and put in a dish. Combine grated ginger, rosemary, honey, vinegar, soy sauce and garlic. Pour over chicken. Chill 4 hours. Preheat oven to 180 deg C. Heat the oil in a casserole dish or frying pan over a medium heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and fry until golden. Set aside. Add the sliced onion, sliced capsicum and chilli to the dish and cook for 5 minutes, then add the leftover marinade and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, chickpeas (drained and rinsed) and stock (use vegetable or chicken stock). Bring to the boil. Put the chicken on top, cover and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.

muscle strength and supports fat reduction. A controlled study has shown chromium picolinate to increase brain activity and activate specific regions of the brain improving learning, recall and memory. In another controlled study, laboratory rats that fed chromium picolinate increased their lifespan by 33 per cent. Some studies have shown chromium picolinate to be more beneficial than other types of chromium. It therefore appears that supplementation with chromium picolinate may be a highly beneficial way to improve our health and possibly even lifespan.

Herbal cancer support


hile working as head nurse of Sisters of Providence Hospital in northern Ontario, Rene Caisse was told by a patient how she had cured herself of advanced breast cancer by using a herbal formula given to her by a very old Ojibway Indian medicine man. Rene noted the formula down. A short time later Rene heard her mother’s sister had cancer of the stomach and liver with a maximum of six months to live. Rene made up the herbal formula she had noted down and gave this to her aunt who fully recovered from the cancer and lived for another 21 years. Her aunt’s doctor was so impressed he asked Rene if she could use her herbal remedy with some of his hopeless cancer cases. She did, with some exceptional results reported.

In 1922 at age 33, Rene left the hospital and went to Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada, where she began administering the herbal formula, she now called “Essiac TM” (her surname spelt backwards), to all who needed it. Most of her patients were referred by their physicians certifying they had terminal cancers. In many cases, her patients were at the end stage of cancer and many died, but generally they lived longer than predicted, with much less pain and other symptoms. Many however fully recovered with no reoccurrence of the cancer. After Rene Caisse died in 1978, her formula has become available again. Cancer is a serious condition. Natural herbal and nutrition therapy may be highly beneficial. Further information is available at Marshall’s Health and Natural Therapy. Phone 388 5757.


Chromium is an essential trace mineral that appears to be below optimum levels in most people, but researchers believe may be vitally important in maintaining good health. Chromium picolinate is highly absorbable as well as generally more beneficial than other types of chromium. Chromium Picolinate Supports: - Stabilised blood sugar levels helping prevent & control diabetes - Insulin responsiveness & activity - Good blood circulation, cholesterol & cardiovascular health (Has been shown to reduce major risk factors for cardiovascular disease.) - Brain performance, helps activate specific regions of the brain connected with learning, recall & memory - Lifespan, shown in a controlled rat study to dramatically increase lifespan by 33%

Cancer Support Formula POWERFUL NATURAL DETOX & IMMUNE SUPPORT Nature’s Sunshine “E-TEA” is formulated according to nurse Rene Caisse’s famous herbal formula that she used to provide nutritional support to cancer patients.

Do you have a good garden plan? An attractive garden is a dream which requires proper planning and careful nurturing. To create a beautiful landscape around your dream home you need basic garden plans to begin with. These garden plans are generally provided by a professional garden planner or landscape designer. The garden plans can be of many types. You can plan for more than just beautifying your garden, your garden plans can also be made to decide the theme of the garden. Some of the popular garden plans are: •Garden for full sun •Garden for shade •Corner of grasses •Corner of shrubs •Corner of perennials •Island bed •Privacy garden •Fragrant garden •Vegetable garden Garden plans give an aesthetic dimension to the garden along with its basic theme. Colour schemes, quality and variety of plants, height of the plants, border and flooring are done to give the garden its uniqueness.

TRANQUIL: A gazebo in the garden is a great place to unwind. The colour scheme of the garden is created blending the different coloured and textured plants. The plants are also selected according to their height which creates the contour of the garden and the skyline of the garden. Garden plans also include the kind of plants to be used according to the theme chosen. It is very important that the garden plans are both beautiful and emotionally restorative. A garden can provide a visual, perfumed, sound and tactile, sensory experience. The garden design needs to complement the home and connect the interiors with the exter-

nal environment, making the most of the available usable areas. Master planners know that the selection of plants is of equal importance along with their strategic placement on the landscape. Garden plans also include the planning of the garden arborsor gazebo as well as entertaining areas and garden art and furniture. Modular design and a unique frame layout can make a simple garden gazebo. The garden gazebo is the perfect place to relax or to hold family dinners, and other special events. A gazebo in the garden plan ensures a favourite spot to unwind.

WATER FEATURE: If your garden includes a pond why not make an island for plants?

Arborists specialise in the care of individual trees. They are knowledgeable about the needs of trees, and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Hiring an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees. Services an Arborist can Provide: • Pruning: An arborist can determine the type of pruning necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance, and safety of trees. • Tree Removal: Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it is necessary. An arborist can help decide whether a tree should be removed. • Emergency Tree Care: An arborist can assist in performing emergency tree care in a safe manner, while reducing further risk of damage to property. • Planting: Some arborists plant trees, and most can recommend species that are appropriate for a particular location. • Plant Health Care: Preventive maintenance helps keep trees in good health while reducing any insect, disease, or site problems.

• Many other services: Consulting services, tree risk assessment, cabling and bracing trees, etc Tips for choosing an arborist Get more than one quote unless you know, and are comfortable with the arborist. Don’t always accept the lowest bid, it pays to check credentials to ensure that you get what you pay for Be wary of cold calling individuals and those who go door to door offering bargains for performing tree work. Most reputable companies are usually too busy to solicit work in this manner For more information or a free no obligation quote contact Michael on 021 0831 7293/ 03 3602962.

The Sawmill Workers Service aims to help people stay healthy by supporting the early detection of diseases, promoting healthy lifestyles and reducing modifiable risk factors. The Sawmill Workers Service is based on a free annual health check delivered by a primary healthcare team in a general-practice setting.
