BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD Hornbyâ€™s air quality is about to come under scrutiny. Wigram MP Megan Woods is looking into whether an air quality monitoring station should be installed in Hornby. She said there was a growing concern about air quality in the area and is making a submission on Environment Canterburyâ€™s proposed Air Plan. She is looking into whether an air quality monitoring station should be installed in Hornby. â€œIt does come down to this issue of post-quake developments in the west of our city.â€? Since the earthquakes, more fac-
tories had moved to the area and more people brought more traffic, which were known to pollute the air, she said. â€œItâ€™s a story of rapid development in Hornby.â€? The move comes after Dr Woods attended a meeting with Hornby residents to discuss the effects omissions from the nearby Ravensdown factory were having on those living in the area. ECan is currently taking submissions on its Air Plan which is looking to come up with an effective strategy to ensure the regionâ€™s air quality meets the national environmental standards. â€˘ Turn to page 2

Hornbyâ€™s air quality under scrutiny
ALWAYS remember the first time my mother cooked venison steaks. For our family, it was a new meat to be enjoyed for its flavour, nutritional goodness, low cholesterol and low fat. It came freshly prepared from the Central Otago highlands and long cooking on high heat meant my mother killed it for a second time. It was tough â€” like shoe leather.
Her second attempt was fantastic â€” two minutes each side then taken out to rest and a slosh of wine, mustard and plum jam into the pan to make a quick, tasty sauce.
Farmed venison became available during the 1980s but as much of it was exported, local prices fluctuated wildly. Today farmed venison is common in supermarket meat cabinets and the price is competitive with other red meats. It has a milder flavour than wild venison â€” a perfect introduction for newcomers to the taste. Farmed venison is grass fed, although during the colder months the diet can be
supplemented with hay or silage. However, things evolve. Now wild venison â€” processed and aged at licensed premises â€” is available from supermarkets and butchers. Itâ€™s great to have the choice. The cuts from the legs, saddle and loin are as tender as the farmed variety, and they have excellent flavour. Remove any sinew or membrane before cooking. Because venison is lean,
overcooking will cause t to become dry and tough cook past the medium-ra except when making cas Stewing venison â€” as w stewing beef â€” requires low-temperature cookin all accompaniments rea before cooking commen roasting, cook to an inte temperature of 57C and remove from the oven, c with foil and a towel and rest 5-10 minutes before

WHAT KIND OF INGREDIENT IS NAM PLA, AND WHERE WOULD I BUY IT? Nam pla is another name for fish sauce, one of the basic ingredients in Thai cooking and also popular in Vietnam and Burma. Itâ€™s based on

Halswell teenager Oscar Sergel-Stringer was part of the St John youth cadet squad which won at the national youth competitions recently. The St John National Youth Festival and Competitions were held over the weekend of April 10-13 at Lincoln University and Christchurch. More than 200 St John youth cadets and leaders from around New Zealand attended the festival, which is the premiere event for St John youth. South Island squad manager Mike McLay said there were a number of different tests and competitions. “Cadets compete in a number of different areas, including first aid, CPR, healthcare, drill (marching) and communications,” he said. “They are marked for their clinical skills, but also their ability to problem solve, their leadership skills, and how level-headed and calm they stay.” Mr McLay said the South Island region squad of 24 won a number of key categories, including champion team, champion individual, and overall champion region – the later for the third year in a row.

• From page 1 The Air Plan includes measures to manage air quality through reducing pollution caused by home heating, outdoor burning, industry, odour and dust. Public submissions will close on May 1. Dr Woods said it was an opportune time to raise the issue, with the Air Plan currently being reviewed. She would also be looking to speak to a medical officer of health to see whether there were any concerns with those living in the area breathing in the air. The main question was whether there was a cause to have an air monitoring station in Hornby. “I don’t know whether it can be done, or whether there is a valid cause for doing it.” Neill St resident Harry Brown organised the meeting where the issue was raised and said it went really well. He was happy with the possibility of having the air monitored in the area and would like to make a submission himself. “We’re fighting the good fight.”

Former Black Caps coach school’s new principal BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD Former Black Caps coach Denis Aberhart has stepped up to the crease and taken on the role of principal at Our Lady of Victories School. Mr Aberhart took over from acting principal Helen Singleton and had his first day in the job on Monday. He was welcomed with a powhiri from the school’s kapa haka group. Our Lady of Victories School was put under statutory management in January 2012 after the Ministry of Education dissolved the previous board of trustees. Commissioner Murray Strong stepped in as statutory manager and principal Barbara Perry was suspended in October 2013 for “serious misconduct”. Ms Perry was reinstated in November 2013, but resigned shortly after. Mr Aberhart said going into the school given the circumstances would not be an issue. “The vibes I get from people are positive and people are looking to the future. We can’t do anything about what’s happened in the past so we need to

Options for bus project
Should the Riccarton Rd roundabout stay or go? Public consultation has opened for three options for the bus priority project on Riccarton Rd, and the roundabout could be on the chopping block. Plans include removing the roundabout and replacing it with traffic signals to cope with increasing traffic volumes. The other two options open for consultation will be for central Riccarton from Clarence to Matipo Sts. The first option is pedestrian friendly, which has streetscape improvements to assist pedestrian movements. There would be no bus lanes, minimal on-street parking and restricted turns in and out of Riccarton Rd and Kauri and Division Sts. A median could run up the middle of the road with trees, and there would be onroad cycle lanes. The second option, the hybrid, would have a part-time eastbound bus lane which would assist with the movement of buses at those times. Roadside parking would be available outside of peak traffic times and a widened footpath on the southside would allow for some tree planting. A cycle lane would be incorporated into the bus lanes meaning the buses and cyclists would have to share at peak hour times. There will also be three drop-in sessions at St Teresa’s Church Hall on the corner of Riccarton Rd and Puriri St open to the public: Thursday 3.30-6.30pm, May 6, 4-7pm May 11, 4-7pm Public submissions can be made at www.ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay and are open until May 18.

Anzac Day rekindles The 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings was on Saturday. Frank Hill, 92, served in World War II in the navy on a tank landing ship. Reporter Kyle Knowles spoke to him about his life. Hi Frank, so you were in the navy? Yes. I was an able seaman on board an American ship called the USS LST-369. It was a tank landing ship but we never had to land anywhere to deploy the tanks while I was on the ship. I wasn’t involved in the D-Day landings in Normandy. Why were you on board an American ship? A few of us New Zealnders were on loan to the Royal Navy which was using the American ship in the latter stages of the war. When did you join the navy? I tried to get in while I was 16 but I had an issue with my left eye so I had 14 months in the army before being able to join the navy.
All the training I did in the army and the navy kept me alive. Was it a proud thing for you to serve your country during the war? Yeah, it was, but I actually joined the war for adventure. I wasn’t patriotic really; I just wanted some adventure like most people in the forces. What did you do straight after the war? I went on a troop shop. I got a job on board in the kitchen and doing exercises on deck. That was coming back from England. How come you were stopping over in England? We were supposed to do a boat refit in Newport but we ended up doing a refit in Belfast. The skipper of our boat lived in Belfast so the boat was in there instead. And you met your wife there, didn’t you? Yes, I met my wife in Wales and got married there and came back here but she died 14 years ago. It was so hard for me when she died but I got some help at Princess Margaret Hospital and I got over the depression.
STILL SERVING: New Brighton RSA life member Frank Hill selling poppies in New Brighton. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN
What did you do for a job when you got back to Christchurch? I was an electroplater. I was in a shoe shop in Sydenham and I bumped into a foreman I knew. I was still in uniform and he said to me “do you want a job”? And I said “yeah, absolutely. When can I start?” I started a week later and worked there until I retired but I didn’t retire at the retirement age. I think I worked until I was
70. The boss was a good guy and when he got sick I looked after the firm. They don’t do much electroplating now; we used to make tea sets, which were all the rage after the war. You are a life member of the New Brighton RSA aren’t you? Yes, I’m a life member. I became one when I turned 90. You still do some work for the RSA too, don’t you? Yes, I sold poppies down by the
shops in Brighton. I was quite chuffed to be out there doing that. I think it’s great people wear poppies at this time of year to thank the soldiers. Was this Anzac Day special for you, being the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings? Yes, it is special because I got to go in the parade in New Brighton, which I’m quite proud of. To be marching down the main street in New Brighton is special to me.

memories of WWII Were you born in Christchurch? Yes, I was born in Sydenham and now I live in North Beach where I have two lovely cats, Lucky and Bowie. While I’m still alive I’m not going to go into a home because I want to look after my cats. What school did you go to growing up? I went to Sydenham School. My father had a bike shop in Sydenham across from the school so that was quite good. I didn’t have any secondary school education and started working when I was 13 at the market. I had to lay trays of fruit. I got five shillings a week for that. I had several jobs before the war but couldn’t stick with them for very long. I worked one day in a timber mill but couldn’t stand the noise so left after that one day and didn’t even bother to collect my pay at the end of the day. What about other family? I have two children. A boy and a girl, five years difference between them, my son is the oldest one. He works at the airport and is just about due to retire. He’s done well. He is quite a bright boy. I have two granddaughters too; one lives in Tauranga now because the earthquakes made her nervous. Did you play sport? I used to play soccer and a bit of cricket. I follow the All Blacks and the Crusaders. They haven’t gone very well being beaten by the

Chiefs last week but they’re still in with a chance but they’ll need a lot of luck to make the finals. They are doing the best they can. What are some of your hobbies? I tell you what my hobbies are: gambling and drinking at the New Brighton Club. I like playing the pokies there. I like socialising, especially with women. I like women’s company, I can’t help that. I also have a few tattoos, even before I joined the navy. I got them at one of the places in Chancery Lane. It was called Tiger something, it is demolished now. I had tattoos put on my arm but one time I was getting one on my chest and the bloke said: “You better have a stiff drink because it is going to hurt a lot more than the one on your arm”. So I had double whisky and away I went. What was the most amazing place you have been? Well, I went through the Panama Canal and I jumped ship there with a couple mates but the Yanks picked us up and took us out to sea back to our boat and they said: “We’ve been looking for you.” Back on board, the officer said I was the ring leader so they put me in a cabin right next to the bar, which I wasn’t too worried about. Where is your favourite place to visit? Honolulu, that’s my favourite place for sure. I’d love to go back
but with my cats, I can’t leave them. What about in New Zealand? I don’t know, I just like going to the working men’s club and the RSA. Dunedin is one of my favourite places though. Not Wellington
or Auckland – I have no time for those places. And you have loved living in New Brighton? Hell yeah, I would never move from New Brighton. I’ve been here since 1949. I bought the section for

Big goals set for competition before that we had experienced guys and ended up eighth at nationals but they have moved on and we’ve sort of blooded the new guys in last year.” Boys’ High’s midfield is where their strengths lie. Leuan Edwards, Tom Byrne and Ben Lapslie play across the middle of the park and Hall said it was good to have all the experience controlling the game from the midfield. They had Papanui first up last week and drew 2-2 and this week have Burnside who sport some top young players.
The football season is under way with a new competition for Christchurch’s high schools having started. Reporter Kyle Knowles takes a look around the city to see how each team has shaped over the pre-season and what they are looking to achieve in 2015. The new competition sees 12 teams split up into two pools of six, with teams playing each other once, before the top three in each pool move through to play each other again in five matches before semis and a final. The top three qualify for the national secondary schools football competition. Boys’ High are aiming for the top. Coach Fraser Hall said they want to qualify for the national competition and be a force in the local competition. “Obviously our main goal is to qualify for the national tournament and do as well as we can in the Wednesday competition. We also want to develop the boys further than the boys from last year.” Boy’s High have 10 players returning from last season which Hall said was critical as they lacked some experience last year. “It certainly makes it easier (having CHALLENGE: Christchurch Boys’ Chan Min Park competing those experienced guys). We lacked for the ball against a Papanui opponent. a lot of experience last year. The year PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN
Washington said it was great to have someone with that experience and knowledge to be part of the first 11 and bring that to trainings. Burnside High have a simple game plan to get into the top three and play in the top six section. The key to their success is working together and to play how they have been training. That was the message from coach David Williams who said getting through to the top section was their goal. Williams said he has eight players returning from last year’s first 11 squad including a couple of key players who he is looking at to lead from the front this year. Boon Ozawa, Renta Yamamoto and Sam Maoate-Cox all play senior club football on Saturdays and Williams said they have a lot to offer. “They bring experience and all play Mainland Premier League with the men’s teams and bring a wealth of experience and have got a lot to give to the rest of the kids especially for the big games”. Burnside had a first-up loss 3-4 to Cashmere High and Williams said all sides are going to be strong. Middleton Grange are also part of the competiiton and had a 0-0 draw with Shirley Boys’ last week and are up against Rangiora High this week.
St Thomas have a young squad but are excited about challenging some of the bigger schools. Co-coach Richard Washington has some big goals for his side in 2014. “The first goal is to make the top six then who knows from there we are aiming to put St Thomas on the map.” First up they had Lincoln and went down 1-0. Washington was using that first game as a litmus test to see where his side was at. We’ll know from there what we need to work on. Most of our squad went on a tour to Dubai, England and France together as a team and they are a tight team and play for one another.” Washington said year 11 striker Michael White would be key for his side and was looking a very strong prospect for the first 11. Alongside Washington as the other co-coach will be Jacob Allen who has been part of the Canterbury United setup and is a St Thomas old boy.

Teams prepare for basketball season BY KYLE KNOWLES A new era of high school basketball starts tomorrow with the launch of the McDonald’s Thompson Trophy. The new competition involves 16 of Canterbury’s high schools fighting to be the best basketball school in the region. All games are being played on a Tuesday night over the winter months with Cashmere and Middleton Grange kicking things off with a traditional season-opening fixture. Middleton Grange have a couple of Canterbury Rams players in their midst surrounded by a core group of players who have been together for a number of years now and are aiming for that top section. Jackson Stent and 2.08m Sam Timmins will be the key to Grange’s success but coach Tim Bennetts was coy about whether the duo were likely to turn out much for the school while the Rams are in season. We are likely to have them as long as it doesn’t clash with a Rams fixture. Sam will be in and out half the time though”. However, the rest of the squad is familiar with one another with only two new faces having to come into the squad from 2014. Bennetts said it was good to have the same team year on year. “We have only lost two guys from
FIRST ROUND DRAW All games start at 6pm – (home team first): Middleton Grange v Cashmere High St Andrew’s v CBHS Burnside High v Papanui High Rangiora High v SBHS St Bede’s v Hillmorton High Ashburton v Linwood College Cathedral Cllege v St Thomas Lincoln High v Christ’s last year and other than Jackson and Sam we have all been together for a number of years. It’s good to have some continuity and adding those younger faces too.” Christchurch Boys’ have had a short build-up to the season and have been hit by a number of injuries to key players but are still confident of performing. Coach Thomas Chang said gym availability at the school was another issue the basketball side has been faced with in pre-season too. “Well we’ve just started so its going to be a very rushed game for us and also our gym is unavailable so we have to play away next week.” One of their injured players is Canterbury Rams squad member Quinn Clinton who is a big loss for the team. He is out with Achilles and back issues but Chang was hopeful he would be able to take some part in
the first month of the competition. In spite of the disrupted build-up and the string of injuries Chang is still hopeful of a top-four finish in the Thompson Trophy. Burnside High have set some lofty goals for 2015. They want to win the new competition as well as the South Island championships. Coach Joe Hammond has had his squad training all through summer developing their skills and getting the squad to gel. Burnside have two Rams players in their squad – Shou Nisbett and Toby Gillooly – and Hammond said having them around is a massive boost for the squad. “They’re a huge difference for us. They are used to training with men and when they train with us it’s kind of like men against teenagers. They’ve got a lot better and the coaches are top notch. They’ve done a great job and the improvement from the end of last season has been massive.” Hammond said Shou is unlikely to feature for Burnside much in the early part of the season Toby was expected to play for the school. St Thomas are also starting their season in the competition and are up against Cathedral College in the first round before getting their first READY TO GO: Two of Middleton Grange’s senior players, Jackson Stent taste of home court action against and Sam Lees. Jackson is also a member of the Canterbury Rams squad. PHOTO: KYLE KNOWLES Lincoln High in week two.

Learning to swim offers health benefits for life
wimming is a popular and universal form of exercise that offers a wide range of health benefits, both physical and mental, and is an activity you can enjoy throughout your life. As a low-impact exercise, swimming is an ideal workout because it requires you to move your whole body against the resistance of the water. It improves and maintains cardiovascular fitness, builds muscle strength, helps maintain a healthy weight and improves flexibility, coordination, balance and posture. For those who would like to take up swimming for both health and enjoyment,
the Bromley-based McMillan’s Aquatic Centre (MACs) caters for everyone – from those who enjoy swimming regularly, even competitively, to those people who have never really mastered the skill and don’t feel confident in the water, but would like to learn. The centre, with its 20-metre, five-lane, heated indoor pool, has been owned and operated by Blair and Karen McMillan since 2009. Blair and his team of qualified tutors offer lessons for both children and adults from Monday to Friday, during the school terms.

Blair and his team of qualiﬁed tutors oﬀer lessons for both children and adults from Monday to Friday, during the school terms.
Children’s lessons are from 3pm to 6pm, and adults’ from 1pm to 3pm and 6pm to 8pm. The adults’ lessons have proven to be so popular that the centre has added additional times, 7am to 9.30am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. One of the key aspects of the centre, Karen says, is that they focus on building strong relationships with families. “We take a holistic approach, and our staff get to know the families that come here really well. Many of the staff have been with the centre for quite some time so there’s a continuity of staff for our clients. And they are all committed to the style of teaching we offer.” Lessons are $13.50. Bookings and payments are made at the start of each term, with 10 lessons, one per week, costing $135. Small classes mean that swimmers get a lot of personal attention, Karen says. Lane hire is available for regular swimmers at $5.50 for 45 minutes. The casual rate is $7. A 10 per cent discount is offered for family groups of three or more. There are never more than two swimmers booked per lane. Providing a secure, private environment for swimmers, from beginners to pros, McMillan’s Aquatic Centre is located on the corner of Wickham and Francella streets (off Dyers Road).

NEW LIFE: An artist’s impression of the new school pool by architect Chris Wilson, of Wilson & Hill.
Ali Harper helps raise funds for pool rebuild Ali Harper will perform a show to help raise money for the rebuild of the Fendalton Open-air School pool. Ms Harper (inset), an ex-Fendalton Open-air School pupil, will perform her show Legendary Divas at The Court Theatre on May 3 in support of the rebuild. The tickets will cost $55 each, and $20 of every ticket will go towards the pool rebuild. The pool was irreparably damaged in the earthquakes and the school is trying to raise the $650,000 needed to rebuild it, along with the changing sheds and the surrounds. Both the school’s board of trustees and the Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board wrote to the Ministry of Education asking for funding. But in a letter to the community board, head of education infrastructure service
Kim Shannon said no funding would be provided. “Unfortunately the swimming pool is not considered an essential pool for the network of swimming pools needed to ensure schools can provide the necessary swimming lessons that are a part of the NZ curriculum,” she said. “The ministry is supportive of the school’s board of trustees taking over ownership of the swimming pool provided that it can demonstrate that it has the means and commitment to raise the necessary funds to make the pool usable,” she said. Through insurance, grants, fundraising and business sponsorship the school has raised $250,000 so far and hopes to have the pupils swimming again this summer by raising the remaining $400,000. Tickets can be purchased at http:// www.fendalton.school.nz/pool-updates/
Buying a car privately A man bought a car privately on Trade Me. The seller had said at the time of sale that there was nothing wrong with it and it was a reliable car, but it had a major breakdown after three months and the man wanted to know what he could do. Buying a vehicle privately can often lead to getting a better bargain if you know a lot about cars, but you have to be careful as you have less protection if something goes wrong. When buying privately, you aren’t protected by the Consumer Guarantees Act or Fair Trading Act, so it is wise to have a thorough mechanical check of the vehicle. Many organisations provide a pre-purchase inspection service. You should also check that the car has a current warrant of fitness – vehicles for sale must have a warrant which is less than a month old unless they are being sold ‘as is, where is’. It’s also a good idea to check whether the registration (vehicle licensing) is up-to-date.
Another important thing to check is whether the vehicle is stolen or has money owing on it. You can check the Personal Property Securities Register online to find out if a motor vehicle has any security interest associated with it – you’ll need to provide the registration number and VIN (or chassis number), and the service costs $3 for each vehicle you
check. You can also use the TXTB4UBUY service – text the registration number and VIN (or chassis number) of the car to 3463, and you’ll receive a yes/no answer (depending on whether the vehicle is being used as a security for a debt), along with an SMS report code to enter online at their website. There are many other services available which check a car’s history thoroughly before you buy it. These services can check government and private databases for records of stolen cars, money owing, accident history and odometer history. Buying a car privately is largely a case of “buyer beware”. If something does go wrong when you buy privately and you can prove that you suffered a loss because the seller misrepresented the car then you can take the seller to the Disputes Tribunal to try and recover that loss. •To talk to one of our team about problems with buying a car or to volunteer for Citizens Advice Bureau contact 0800 367 222
