Violent patients told to leave hospital „„ By Gabrielle Stuart PATIENTS ARE being told to leave hospitals in Canterbury because of the risk they pose to nurses and other staff. The revelation comes in data released under the Official Information Act about the number of attacks on Canterbury District Health Board staff. The figures show that the number of attacks on staff have dropped dramatically last year - and forcing violent patients to leave is given as one of the reasons. The number of assaults on health board staff skyrocketed after the earthquakes, but dropped last year by almost two thirds. They dropped from 1052 reported assaults in 2014, to 383 last year. Elected health board member Aaron Keown has backed the

tactic of removing violent patients. He said removing violent patients from a hospital was no different to refusing to serve an abusive customer in retail. “If you’re a drunken idiot and you cut your arm off and then continue being an idiot, then dude, you’re going to lose half your arm. We’re offering to fix it for you if you’re going to play along by our rules, but if you’re going to abuse staff and try to punch staff or spit on them see you later, you can lose your arm,” said Mr Keown. He said the district board had been given regular updates on efforts to reduce the high numbers of assaults. He said the problem areas were usually either in mental health, or around alcohol - and they should be treated differently. •Turn to page 7


150 reasons to go to the rugby „„ By Tom Doudney IF YOU need a good reason to get down to the Crusaders game tomorrow night, look no further than the little guy on the left. Halfback Andy Ellis, who announced his retirement earlier this week, will become the third Crusader to notch up 150 games when he runs out on to AMI Stadium, joining prop Wyatt Crockett (right), and retired hooker Corey Flynn. For Crockett, it will be his


164th game for the team, equaling retired Blues hooker Kevin Mealamu’s record as the most games for a single New Zealand Super Rugby franchise. The Crusaders are part of a three-way tie for top spot in the New Zealand conference with the Chiefs and Highlanders and will be hoping to bounce back from last weekend’s loss against the latter when they take on the Australian conference-leading Waratahs. Both Ellis and Crockett said


their minds would be firmly on the task at hand rather than the milestones come game time. “All I really want is for the team to perform, to try not to get too overwhelmed by the occasion, go out and do my job for the team and try and make that my focus,” Ellis said. “If we can put in a really good performance and have a win then we’ll go and celebrate afterwards.” By noon yesterday about 10,000 tickets had been sold. Kick off is at 7.35pm tomorrow.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK YOU SHOULDN’T need 150 reasons to go to watch the Crusaders (our page 1 pic story) but it is a heck of an excuse to get out of the house tomorrow night. Yep, Andy Ellis, that fiery – but very likeable – No 9 is marking his 150th appearance for the Crusaders – so get along to AMI folks and show that it’s just not the leaguies who can sell out the ground! On pages 4 and 5, reporter Gabrielle Stuart examines the city’s most violent suburbs and areas – and also looks at the safest parts of town. Jim Doyle might have had his beer fridge raided by a thief but he still lives in one of the safest areas in town. Cheers to that! We also look at regional media and the future of stations like CTV on pages 8-9. New Zealand On Air says it is rosy. We report on the winds of change that are blowing in how regional and local news and information is delivered. Barry Clarke

The 23-year-old was bitten by the shark on her forearm – and it refused to release, even as it was dying. The shark was removed in hospital, and the woman was reportedly in a stable condition. Medical personnel said they had “never seen anything like it.”

IS HEALTHY FOOD REALLY BETTER FOR YOU? If you’ve been grazing on ‘healthy’ snacks but the weight still won’t budge, scientists may have an explanation – but you might not want to hear it. A study, published by the International Journal of Research in Marketing, says eating light snacks and drinks can give you 13 per cent more calories than the full fat versions. Scientists says people find it easier to justify overindulging when the food is labelled as healthier.

News Remembering Renee „„ Chelsea Daniels and Andrew King FRIENDS AND family of Renee Duckmanton whose burnt body was found on Main Rakaia Rd on Sunday night – want to remember who she was, not what she did as a job. Ms Duckmanton, 22, was named as the victim by police on Tuesday night, two days after her body was found by a member of the public just 500m from State Highway 1. Police yesterday said Ms Duckmanton was last seen Manchester St near Peterborough St between 8-10pm. Police believe her work in the sex industry may have been a factor in her death. A close family friend told The Star, Ms Duckmanton was a survivor and a strong young woman, and will be remembered for this, not the job she did. She said that Ms Duckmanton turned to sex work because she wanted to prove she could do anything because she had cerebral palsy, which affects movement and posture. She is the fourth woman, who has had links to the city’s sex industry, to be killed since 2005. It is the second homicide in three weeks after the burnt body of Marcus Tucker was found on Drain Rd near Lake Ellesmere on April 25. Peter John Carroll, 51, was charged with the alleged murder. A woman, 31, with interim name suppression, has also been charged. The pair are set to appear in district court tomorrow. Ms Duckmanton’s mother, Tracy, said Renee would be remembered as a “kind, sweet and trusting person.” New Zealand Prostitutes Collective regional director Anna Reed said sex work “was just a small part of her (Ms Duckmanton’s) life.’’ “You’ve got to remember,

she was somebody. She was someone’s daughter, someone’s deeply loved friend and she had her whole life ahead of her.” “Women that are doing this sort of work are considered beneath their acceptance level of what a woman should be doing,” she said.

she was a person who wanted to help those who were “broken”. “She was the kind of person that would always try to help people,” she said. When Hassan first met the then 18-year-old, she said Ms Duckmanton was caught up battling darker demons. “She suffered from a lot of depression. So, it was a slightly better job choice for her because she could choose her hours.”

• December 19, 2008, Mellory Manning was killed over a drug debt she had with a Mongrel Mob member. Her partly naked body was also found in the Avon River just metres from where Waihape’s victim was found. Mauha Huataki Fawcett, who was 26 at the time, was convicted of her killing in 2014 and sentenced to life with a minimum non-parole period of 20 years. Ms Duckmanton moved around a lot, between the streets and brothels – not long enough to build any close relationships with the other women, she said. They talked about work and also what “cover stories” Ms Duckmanton could use to hide what she was doing from her family.

In Brief MONA VALE CAFE LIKELY A plan to turn the Mona Vale Gatehouse into a cafe could come to fruition within a year, with the Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board putting it to the city council at its annual plan hearing last weekend. The plan could see the historic council-owned building, usually used as a rental accommodation, converted into a coffee house. CENTRAL CITY APARTMENT PLAN Two empty central city sites could be developed into 33 apartments and with 748.5m2 of commercial and retail space. The city council has granted a land use consent to Pinnacle Corporate Trustee to develop the properties at 130 Peterborough St and 135 Kilmore St which back onto one another, into three blocks. Two of the blocks would have both retail shops and apartments, while the third would include a storage area and apartments. There would be 33 car parks. REBUILD FOR CANCER SOCIETY BUILDING Cancer Society New Zealand is planning on rebuilding its premises on Manchester St. It has been granted a consent from the city council to rebuild on its original site at 246 Manchester St and the adjoining site at 162 Kilmore St. The original building was damaged in the February 2011 earthquake.

News The city’s dangerous spots

Several central city spots, including Cathedral Square and Hagley Park, are proving hotspots for violent crime. But what is to blame – the rebuild? The authorities? Or Christchurch’s booze culture? Gabrielle Stuart reports MORE THAN 300 people were assaulted in Cathedral Square area last year. That put it fifth on the list of most dangerous places nationwide. And it wasn’t the only central Christchurch location to feature, with Hagley Park, the Avon Loop and Sydenham all high on the list. The list comes from police figures recording the numbers of assaults, sexual assaults and Jim Doyle has been living in Westmorland, one of Christchurch’s least violent places, for 28 years. During that time, he has been a victim of one crime: All the beer was stolen out of his garage beer fridge one day after the door was left open. He believed the thieves also attempted to hot-wire his wife’s car, but he said they appeared to be amateurs and didn’t manage it.

“No, it’s pretty good here. We’ve had the letter box smashed a couple of times, but that’s about it. I definitely haven’t heard of any violent crime here.” He said the area had changed a lot, especially over the past decade. Where their living room windows once looked out over paddocks of cows, his view is now over rows of new homes. But he said the

violent robberies in each area. Per 10,000 residents the area around Cathedral Square had the highest violent crime rate, more than 100 times above average – although that was skewed because only about 500 people live in that part of the central city. Central city business owners spokesman Ernest Duval said the empty spaces and disrepair around Cathedral Square made it an uninviting and intimidating place to walk.

neighbourhood was still peaceful and friendly. There is an active Westmorland Residents’ Association, which holds regular community events, there wasn’t much traffic, and the area was largely undamaged in the earthquakes. “I’d be very happy to live here forever. We’re tucked away off the main drag, and it’s nice and sunny but private.”

– and the safest “If you don’t have an inviting, safe, bright, tidy built environment then you attract social problems, and this is what we’re seeing in Christchurch. These are the negative social side effects of not getting on with the rebuild.” Over the 30 years he had worked in the central city he said violence had been an ongoing issue, particularly on Friday or Saturday nights. But he said the disrepair after the earthquakes had made the problem worse. While bars are reopening in the central city, many public projects around them have been delayed. “The city is getting a reputation for being a bit down and out. It’s not going to be a good look for Christchurch if visitors are confronted with all those elements in the central city.” Superintendent Lane Todd said a lot of the violence in the central city was alcohol-related. “What tends to happen in the early hours of the morning is that as people pre-load and they come into the bars there’s issues with them gaining entry, because obviously if they’re half intoxicated they won’t gain entry, and then that flows to the fact they cause disorder or assaults as a result of that.”

But citywide, he said public place violence had dropped in the year to April by 14 per cent. He said the figures covered different levels of violence, so something recorded as a violent assault could range from someone pushing someone else to threatening them with a weapon. The same was true of robberies, which could range from someone holding up a shop, to someone taking something like a phone from someone else. But he said the empty spaces within the central city were an issue. He said police officers regularly patrolled the central city, and increased the patrols around “at risk times” on weekends and between midnight and 4am. They were also working with the city council on its crime prevention through environmental design plan, which looks at using things like lighting and building design to make cities more open and safe. Those plans have recently been used in the design of bus lounges like the Riccarton hub. About one in five areas around the country recorded no violent crimes at all, many in rural or suburban areas.

Doc Ross has a good view over Sydenham from his second storey windows on Colombo St, but the worst violence he saw was a “drunken lovers tiff ” every now and then. He and his wife, Liz Taylor, have been living in Sydenham for 18 years. He said things were different before the earthquakes, when a legal highs shop drew a lot of “dodgy” people to the area. “There was lots of violence then. A guy got stabbed once and went staggering around with blood all over him. But since everything’s gone, it’s been pretty peaceful.” But even then, he said

he wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. “It’s just a great place to live, really. We hardly ever drive our car because you’ve just got to walk over the bridge and there’s everything there. That’s why we’ve chosen to stay in spite of all this.” “All this” includes the weeks after the earthquakes when they had to climb through a neighbour’s window to get into their house, because the front entrance from Colombo St was blocked off. The amount of space and central location also made it a perfect place for his photography studio, Gallery 464, he said.

EQC’s approach to its repair obligations There has been some discussion about how the Earthquake Commission meets its obligations under the Earthquake Commission Act (EQC Act) following the release of the Joint Statement agreed with a group of Canterbury homeowners, the EQC Action Group. Information on what the joint statement means for customers and how customers can request a review of their claim can be found at www.eqc.govt.nz

Land settlements update

EQC is now working on the remaining eleven percent of green zone properties and red zone properties (not owned by the Crown), which still need their land claims resolved. “From a total of 73,000 such properties which had land claims, there are now around 8,000 where the land claims still need to be settled by EQC,” says EQC Head of Canterbury Land Settlement, Keith Land. This year EQC is aiming to complete these remaining land damage settlements, with the majority of work focusing on claims for Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) and Increased Flooding Vulnerability (IFV) land damage.

2. in reinstating the building to a condition substantially the same as but not better or more extensive than its condition when new

ILV land damage settlements on the basis of repair cost

Some of the commentary following the Joint Statement focused on the concept of “when new”, which refers to when the house was new. While “when new” is one element, EQC needs to take into account each of the three main elements, when meeting its obligations under the Act. For instance, the concept of when new needs to be seen in light of complying with any applicable laws.

“We are planning to start contacting customers in early June who, based on the information we have to date, have the opportunity to complete a ground repair on their property to address the ILV land damage,” says Mr Land. Before the repair cost settlements can be made, EQC will be working closely with these customers to understand their plans for rebuilding on the site and whether the plans include any ground repair.

Together with resolving remaining IFV claims, the priority now is on settlements for the around 4,400 ILV customers. Some properties have both ILV and IFV land damage. “We’re on track to start making the first payments to ILV customers from late June,” says Mr Land. Settlements for ILV land damage will be made by cash payment, in line with how IFV and other types of land damage from the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes have been settled to date. ILV settlements will be based on one of two approaches: repair cost, or reduction in market value of the property due to ILV land damage – also called Diminution of Value (DOV). Information on ILV, and details of these settlement approaches, including answers to a number of questions, can be found on the EQC website at www.eqc.govt.nz/ILV

ILV land damage settlements on the basis of DOV EQC expects that most ILV properties will be settled solely on the basis of DOV. This is because, where the house has remained in place after the earthquakes (as many have), there will not generally be repair methods available to repair ILV damage on the property. The first payments made in late June will be to those customers with ILV land damage whose settlements are based on DOV. “The ILV DOV approach and settlement amounts will be similar to how we’ve been handling IFV claims,” says Mr Land.

Claim deadline looming

The deadline for lodging a claim is 30 May 2016.

Christchurch residents whose homes suffered damage in the 29 February 2016 earthquake still have time to lodge a claim with EQC.

EQC encourages anyone whose home suffered damage in this event to make a claim even if the damage appears minor.

This deadline does not stop you from lodging a new claim with EQC if your dwelling incurs new damage as part of recent or future quakes.

3. modified as necessary to comply with any applicable laws.

“We will have a dedicated team case managing these customers to ensure EQC has a good understanding of their situation and they are kept up-to-date with their claim’s status,” says Mr Land.

Land assessments and settlements in general “We have identified different types of land damage – visible land damage, IFV and ILV. For each type of land damage, we use a range of assessment processes that allow the appropriate settlement for each customer and are consistent with the legislation in place. “Each property is different and is assessed on a case-by-case basis, so one customer’s settlement is not indicative of another’s,” says Mr Land.

As of early May, 60 percent of potential Increased Flooding Vulnerability (IFV) customers (9,600) have had their IFV claims resolved. This also includes any outstanding visible land damage settlements these customers may have.

1. the costs which would be reasonably incurred

“We’ve been working closely with customer advocates groups to make sure the settlement communications our customers receive is clear and helps them understand our decision.”

Work is underway to determine the settlements for ILV customers whose payments can be based on repair cost.

Keith Land, EQC Head of Canterbury Land Settlement

EQC acknowledges that every homeowner affected by earthquake damage faces a set of circumstances specific to their property and that a different repair strategy is likely to be applied in each case. That said, EQC uses some general principles when making its decisions. EQC insures an earthquake-damaged house for its replacement value up to a certain cap, usually $115,000 including GST, according to the EQC Act. Given there has been some confusion about what “replacement value” means, it’s worth having a close look at the definition in the EQC Act, which includes three main elements:

How ‘replacement value’ may apply in practice Example 1

For more information on the approach to land claims and their settlement, visit www.eqc.govt.nz/land.

Following an earthquake, a brick chimney falls through the corrugated iron roof of a 1900s-era villa.

“We also have an open and robust review process in place for those customers who want us to review our decisions on whether their insured land has damage and/or the settlement amount paid,” says Mr Land.

The falling chimney smashes through the ceiling, shattering a ceramic light fitting that was already badly deteriorated prior to the earthquake.

Check out www.eqc.govt.nz/landreview for more information on land settlement review.

Land settlements for red zone properties EQC is assessing all residential land claims across Canterbury in a consistent way – whether they are green zone properties or red zone properties. The Government’s decisions related to the red zone are separate from EQC’s decisions related to the assessment and settlement of land damage claims. As agreed with CERA and now Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), EQC’s priority continues to be to resolve land damage claims for properties in the green zone and those in the red zone, whose owners did not accept a Crown offer. “However, we continue to work with LINZ, which has taken over management of the around 7,000 Crown owned red zone properties. We expect to agree a settlement approach with LINZ in the second half of 2016, applying the same policies EQC has used to settle green zone claims,” says Mr Land.

EQC has so far received just over 10,500 building, contents and land claims since the first quake on Valentine’s Day. People can lodge claims with EQC online at www.eqc. govt.nz/claims via email on info@eqc.govt.nz or by calling 0800 DAMAGE (0800 326 243). The EQC call centre is open 7am to 9pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 6pm on Saturdays.

To repair the roof, the corrugated iron in the area where the chimney fell would be replaced with new corrugated iron. If corrugated iron of the same type as the damaged iron is not available because it is no longer manufactured, the new corrugated iron would be a modern product, which matches as closely as possible the profile of the damaged corrugated iron. In some situations, the new corrugated iron may be coloured steel or the corrugated iron may need to be repainted to match the colour of the existing roof. EQC may also need to reinstate or replace non-damaged parts of the roof that need to be removed in order to repair the earthquake damage, such as the iron ridging on the roof peak. The repair work to the roof would be carried out to ensure the work meets applicable laws such as the performance standards in the Building Code. The light fitting would be replaced. If the existing wiring couldn’t be safely reconnected to the light fitting then an Electrical Safety Inspection would be required. The wiring would need replacing to a point where the electrician determines it can safely be reconnected, and to meet any legal requirements for that work. Example 2 An earthquake damages the so-called ‘rubble foundations’ a home is built on. If the foundation can be repaired so that the foundation is in a condition substantially the same as when it was new and the repair work complies with applicable laws, the foundation repair will meet the “replacement value” standard. In other cases, to meet the standard of applicable laws, part or all of the foundation may need to be replaced. EQC considers each repair strategy based on the facts specific to each home. Individual foundation repairs are dependent on the nature of the foundation, the type of earthquake damage suffered and the make-up of the concrete. Customers can request a review If any customer believes EQC has missed earthquake damage to their home, disagrees with the repair strategy EQC has proposed, or believes their settlement amount is not correct, they can use EQC’s standard processes to request a review of their individual claim on 0800 DAMAGE (0800 326 243) or email info@eqc.govt.nz

Family violence in police focus

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart REDUCING FAMILY violence in Christchurch is one of the police’s major targets for the next several years. That will mean closer work with both victims and perpetrators. The focus will involve successful North Canterbury family violence programme ReachOut, which has just won a major policing award. It works with the perpetrators of violence, as well as people who are believed to be at risk of becoming violent. None of the men who engaged with the ReachOut programme in its first year, 2012, reoffended, and the re-offending rate over the following two years stayed around 1.2 per cent. District Superintendent Lane Todd said family violence was likely to remain a major focus for more than two years. “In a practical sense we want to be working a lot more closely with our repeat victims and also repeat offenders as well.” He said that could involve changing focus or structures within police, but would also involve much closer work with partner agencies. Aviva, formerly Christchurch

VIOLENCE: The police have made reducing family violence a major focus, using a programme developed in North Canterbury.

Women’s Refuge, worked with police to develop the ReachOut programme, and has three staff working across Canterbury. Aviva chief executive Nicola Woodward said more staff and funding would be needed in order to fully roll out the programme across Christchurch. Senior Constable Chris Hurring, the North Canterbury family violence co-ordinator, said the programme didn’t need big resources or a lot of manpower from a policing perspective.

He said it was a matter of switching focus to the right places. “Very simply, when you think about police attending a domestic, it was us referring a woman to refuge and us looking after children through Child, Youth and Family, but not necessarily doing anything at all with the man. Therefore, his behaviour, the majority of the time, will stay the same.” He said the goal was also to intervene early on.

“Only 22 per cent of the time is a person prosecuted as a result of a domestic, so the other 78 per cent of the time nothing happens. If you can engage with men in 100 per cent of those occurrences then you’re hopefully going to change behaviour before they are arrested and charged. That’s true prevention.” Information on ReachOut or other family violence services can be found online at www. avivafamilies.org.nz or through 0800 AVIVA NOW.


Patients told to leave hospital •From page 1 “If a patient is dangerous or abusive, if they’re a mental health patient they should be going straight into the mental health system, where you have teams dealing with them who are specially trained for that so they can deal with anything straight away. But as far as anyone else goes, they should be refused service.” Physical assaults could be anything from being spat on to being badly beaten, said Mr Keown. New Zealand Nurses Association organiser Christin Watson said the main reason for the drop in the number of attacks on staff was the way they were now recorded. District health boards around the South Island changed their reporting system last year, moving from paper forms to an online system. “We believe there is significantly less reporting, especially of lower level assaults, and a lower level of incident reporting across all incidents. So the information coming out we don’t believe is accurate and is potentially misleading.”

Changing face of media catches NZ On Air has announced major funding boosts for regional television – including CTV, the most successful of its kind in New Zealand – to keep up with changing viewer habits. Emma-Jane McLennan looks into the future of regional media

REGIONAL TV REACH: This graph from New Zealand On Air’s regional television audience report shows the footprint, compared to viewers, regional TV has in New Zealand (excluding Auckland).

REGIONAL TELEVISION viewers make up more than onethird of the population. That is 1,594,089 people in New Zealand tuning in to their local channel at least once a month. But the increasingly competitive media world is changing the way we watch, read and listen – something NZ On Air is responding to with funding changes rolled out across the country. The changes have seen the combined CTV/Star Media newsroom backed with $400,000 in funding. “This is an exciting step forward for regional media. As the funding agency we see audience behaviour changing and so how and what we fund is also changing,” NZOA chief executive Jane Wrightson said. It is “specifically seeking innovation” and sees StarMedia as a prime example of the modern multi-media business, Ms Wrightson said. “CTV has always been a leader

in regional television and so wasn’t challenged to quite the same extent [as other regional TV channels]. That said, CTV too can grow its audience and experiment with new ways of providing content to a regional audience, through the new collaboration with Star Media. This is an exciting time for a company that has built a strong base, has come through adversity, and continues to face the future with optimism.” Star Media publishes The Star and community papers Bay Harbour News, Selwyn Times, Nor’West News, Southern View, Western News and the Pegasus Post. It also publishes magazines Rugby News, Style Magazine, Weekend Gardener and With This Ring. It has the hugely popular Facebook page Rise Up Christchurch and organises the iconic City2Surf, The Star Home and Leisure Show and the With This Ring Bridal Show. It added CTV to its stable last year.

the eye of viewers and funders Latest Nielsen research shows that 79 per cent of New Zealanders read a newspaper across a week. Of those, 62 per cent read a community paper and 56 per cent read a paid daily paper. Audiences are going online in droves, meaning a good digital media presence is “essential,” media commentator Tony Simons, head of the Christchurch-based New Zealand Broadcasting School, said. “Online is relatively inexpensive to run, but it’s very competitive.” Audiences in seven regions across New Zealand will be served a new range of multimedia regional news and information, with $1.3 million in funding from NZOA. This comes after the government broadcast funding agency commissioned an independent report into regional TV audiences in 2014. The report was followed by an independent review of regional TV funding last year. The Star Media TV channel was the most successful of the incumbent regional TV channels surveyed by NZOA, Ms Wrightson said.

Charlotte Smulders

“We all know about Canterbury parochialism, and CTV seems to embody the best of this, but also has striven to provide quality journalism.” It has the second-highest proportion of population watching the local channel, with 47 per cent of Cantabrians tuning in to CTV. That is compared with the highest proportion (Invercargill at 59 per cent) and lowest (Whangarei, 15 per cent). NZOA has responded to the

report findings with its new funding model, which backs four multi-media businesses in New Zealand - Star Media, Very Nice Productions, Allied Press and Te Reo Irirangi O Te Hiku O Te Ika. Each has developed its own multi-media plan, tailored to its audience, Ms Wrightson said. “In changing the funding model we have specifically sought innovation. We hope to see the line between broadcast television and digital viewing crossed, so that audiences can choose how and when to consume the content.” The new regional media fund is the first in a number of changes being rolled out in coming months, to ensure NZOA is keeping up with changing audience habits. CTV’s $400,000 in funding for 2016/17 is up $160,000 on its 2014/15 funding allocation. The recent integration of CTV into Star Media’s newsroom means it has multi-platform distribution abilities for news and information, providing coverage from Kaikoura to South Canterbury, and west to Arthur’s Pass. Star Media director and general manager of CTV, Charlotte


Smulders, said there are a lot of pluses that come with integrating print and TV which will work well for audiences. “A fully integrated newsroom means we can really expand on the news. We know people want local news, so we’re looking at having a news presence throughout the day. We’ve also got Style TV and Style Magazine and synergies across the whole business.” Mrs Smulders also said it was about engaging with a younger audience. Mr Simons agreed this was key: “ TV channels need to be online, they need to be on social media and using all the possible ways of getting their messages out there. It needs to be cooler and younger.” Funding from NZOA means the business can now invest further to have a well-resourced multimedia team to provide news and information across all platforms, Star Media Group chief executive Pier Smulders said. “Whether it’s by broadcast, radio, print, website or social media channels, we need to make sure we reach people. We are absolutely thrilled that we can now put our plans into action.”

Gay marriage blessing on hold

Edmonds gate found

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart

„„ By Emma-Jane McLennan THE ‘SURE to Rise’ Edmonds gate has been recovered in an unlikely series of events, more than a year after it was stolen. Melanie Edmond, of Nelson, has finally put an end to recurring ‘not guilty’ pleas in relation to the theft of the gate after it was recovered, Friends of the Edmonds Factory Garden spokesman John Hoskin said. “I had a call last Friday that the gate had been found . . . and would you believe it, she’s pleaded guilty.” The gate was stolen in March last year. A few weeks ago, IT was spotted by a young couple and their two-year-old son, on the side of the road while travelling over Takaka Hill, near Nelson. “They had to stop for their son for a moment, and the wife peered over the side of the hill because she spotted something unusual. It was the gate,” Mr Hoskin said. The gate was picked up by Nelson Police, and is being sent back to Christchurch. Edmond, 43, pleaded guilty in the Nelson District Court on Tuesday, and has been sentenced to 100 hours of community work.

AN ANGLICAN gay marriage blessing ceremony has been put on hold for at least two years because of opposition from several dioceses, including Christchurch. The new ceremony would allow Anglican churches to bless same sex marriages, although they could still not be formally married or have their marriages recognised by the church. The plan split the Anglican synod last week, with the Maori and Polynesia arms supporting it but the Pakeha arm divided. After a week of discussion they decided to postpone a decision until the next synod in 2018. But Anglican Bishop of Christchurch Victoria Matthews (above) said the decision to oppose the plan was not about opposition to same-sex marriage.

“The Diocese of Christchurch was actually more concerned about church unity than sexual ethics. “While many in this diocese would welcome and still others not object to the blessing of same gender unions, there are a significant number who are deeply concerned, based on their Biblical interpretation of certain texts.” Parishes in Hamilton and Auckland split from the church in 2014 after the plan was proposed, and there were fears more parishes would leave if it was approved. Rainbow Wellington chairman Rawa Karetai (left), who

managed the marriage equality campaign, said many people within the church were very disappointed by the decision. “People have lobbied very hard, and it is likely some will turn away from their choice of church because of this, so it is disappointing.” For same-sex couples whose faith was a major part of their lives, being supported and accepted within their church was very important, he said. But he said the goal of the marriage equality campaign was giving people choice, and that meant churches could choose not to perform same-sex marriages.

“We acknowledge and respect that other organisations have their own ideology,” he said. The issue is not the first time same-sex marriage has split the Anglican church. In 2008, seven Christchurch diocese representatives joined the Global Anglican Future Conference in Jerusalem, which criticised Anglican leaders, including the then Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, for supporting a “false gospel” allowing homosexual ministers to serve in the church. Bishop Matthews resigned last year from the working group appointed to look at the same sex blessings plan. But she said it was a matter of maintaining her integrity, not a judgement on the work it was doing. “I decided I would be unable to minister effectively in this diocese and also have membership on the Way Forward Working Group as time progressed,” she said in a letter to the diocese.

News SITE SEARCH WIDENS Warren Park is the latest venue being investigated for a megafacility in Hornby. The Oakley Cres site has been mentioned in a city council report as a possible replacement for sports clubs that currently use Denton Park. It has been reported that Denton Park is the preferred location for the mega facility, which would primarily cater for sports clubs, and possibly other community groups. DUMPING CAMERA ON SITE A camera that was previously used to catch taggers has been installed in Bexley to catch anyone dumping rubbish in the residential red zone. The 5m, 2000kg security camera was installed on the corner of Wetlands Grove and Morganwood St last Tuesday. NO CAR PARK EXPANSION Jellie Park Recreation and Sports Centre will not expand its car park after a vote against the proposal at a hearing on Friday. There was strong public opposition to the plan with 65 out of 130 saying no to a car park expansion. City councillor David East and Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board member Faimeh Burke voted against the plan to expand the car park. Shirley-Papanui Community Board member Emma Norrish voted to expand the car park.

Bid to beat obesity in kids „„ By Bridget Rutherford STAFF TRAINING, healthy living programmes and early identification of obese children are ways the district health board aims to meet new obesity targets. In October, the Government announced it would implement a new plan which aims to prevent and manage obesity in children and youth up to 18 years old. It focuses on identifying children as overweight or obese through B4 School checks at the age of four, and referring the children and their family to the appropriate services. It rolls out on July 1. About 15 per cent of Canterbury children at the age of four are considered obese. That is 400, out of 6000. Canterbury District Health Board team leader Greg Hamilton said an implementation group with representatives from across the health sector had been developing a project plan over the past year. He said it consisted of a ‘five point’ approach. The first focus was preventing the children from becoming overweight or obese, through

INTERVENTION: Dr Greg Hamilton said the new plan focuses on activity, healthy eating, and early detection.

physical activity and healthy lifestyle programmes. That included Sport Canterbury’s Green Prescription, Active Families and parenting programmes. The second was making sure overweight children were appropriately identified and referred to get the help they needed, which included staff being trained to do that. Making sure those identified were managed appropriately, ways of measuring success, and integrating well with appropriate



organisations were other focuses being worked through. But district health board member Aaron Keown said he was sceptical as to whether the new programme would work. He said the Government needed to implement something like Jamie Oliver’s food in schools programme, where the celebrity chef visited British schools and taught pupils about healthy eating. “Food is as important as math,” he said. “Make food part of the curriculum, it is that simple.”

Child obesity is measured through Body Mass Index from their height and weight, and factors in growth tables. Dr Hamilton said while meeting the expectations of the new health target achievement was important, the scope of the district health board’s plan extended beyond it. “Our ambition is to develop a systemic change in the way that we identify and offer support to all children and their families who are overweight or too heavy to enjoy good health.”

Lonsdale hits back at spending criticism A CITY councillor has fired back after delays in the city council’s capital programme have been criticised by a business group, which says it has created a “critical” confidence gap in the rebuild. The Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce have attacked the city council’s plan to spend less on its capital programme, reduce planned rates increases and asset sales, saying the moves are “not justified.” ‘The delays in the spending on transitional and permanent rebuild...are affecting both citizen and business sector confidence,” chamber chief executive Peter Townsend said in a submission to the city council’s draft annual plan and long term plan. But city councillor Paul Lonsdale has responded, saying the city council will be criticised “no matter what” it does. “Our capital expenditure

is always underspent, we are always taking millions [of dollars] forward. It’s going to happen because we don’t have the resources to get this much work done.” He said the city council is working at changing its reputation of over promising and under delivering. “This time we’re looking at what we can actually deliver on. That’s why its cut back.” Proposals in the city council’s draft plan include increasing rates by 5 per cent instead of the expected 7.18 per cent, reducing the amount of money it needs from asset sales from $750 million to $600 million, and spending $166 million less on its capital programme in the coming year. Mr Townsend’s criticism has been backed by central city business owners’ spokesman Ernest Duval. “Any delays are going to retard confidence in the

inner city. You’ve got the capital programme then the biggest handbrake on the central city – the delayed anchor projects,” Mr Duval said. He added that with all the delays you would have to be a “very brave developer” to jump in at this stage of the rebuild. “There has been so much sidelined because of these types of delays.” But BNZ Centre developer Nick Hunt said when he “took his developer hat off, and put on his ratepayer hat” the slower timelines make sense. “As a ratepayer, I’m happy with the city council taking time to make the right decisions.” He said he drew parallels between Christchurch’s quake rebuild and the aftermath of the London bombings. “It took 15 years for London to get back on its feet. Money is hard to come by, and easy to spend.”

Incomprehensible that killer alone was responsible Blessie Gotingco’s murder TONY ROBERTSON is a stone-cold killer and rapist who has never taken responsibility. After he murdered Blessie Gotingco (right), he worked hard to avoid responsibility. When the calls for the inquiry came, the question turned. It effectively asked: “Did somebody else enable Robertson to murder and rape through inaction or incompetence?” A Government-ordered inquiry found “Robertson, and only Robertson, can be held responsible for what happened to Mrs Gotingco”. Corrections and police staff did their jobs when it came to Robertson. There were programmes (in prison) Robertson (right) could have participated in. He didn’t because he refused to admit he had abducted and indecently assaulted a fiveyear-old in 2005. Offenders must admit they have an issue before it can be dealt with. On the single occasion Robertson said he might take part in the sex offenders’ programme, it was because it “might help” with the parole board. “I don’t even need to do it,” he said. “I’m not like that.” The inquiry found Corrections didn’t capitalise on this possible opportunity, asking: “Was this a genuinely missed opportunity? or merely the words of someone intent on saying what the questioner wanted to hear?” What could have been done? There were issues. Public Protection Orders keep the truly, extremely dangerous away from us for longer. PPOs did not come into being until seven months after Mrs Gotingco was killed. Corrections could have brought rehabilitative efforts to bear on Robertson earlier in his

You said: sentence. That is the approach now. The Gotingco family, supported by former Sensible Sentencing Trust dismissed the report hours after it had been issued. Mr Gotingco said Corrections did not have the ability to manage high-risk criminals like Robertson. Ms Money wanted to know why Robertson was allowed a car, and why he wasn’t followed by someone every time he left his house. The report noted the “criminal justice is complex and demanding”. “It can be extremely stressful on those who work within it.” When people like Robertson are released into the community, we all shoulder that stress. But they will be released. Few stay locked up forever. The one outcome the Gotingco family want is impossible – Blessie Gotingco is gone forever. In this light, it is understandable the report is unsatisfactory. Against the scale of such loss, it seems incomprehensible that an insignificance like Tony Robertson is alone responsible for her death. • Edited version of the New Zealand Herald senior reporter David Fisher’s comment piece on the Blessie Gotingco murder.

Be great to plant natives, make nice picnic groves and orchards in the space!

Choose wisely for your future Christchurch. But don’t take too long!

Liz Morrison – I feel that Gerry Brownlee’s Viewpoint article (May 12) titled Clearing up confusion is misleading. The example of an asbestos roof being completely replaced is given. The example of a roof being patched with a piece of iron matching as closely as possible to the damaged iron, and possibly painted to match the undamaged portion of the roof is not given. (EQC’s approach to its repair obligations May 11, 2016) The example of replacing wiring if it is unsafe back to a safe point is given. This is different from the following from Reid Stiven: EQC Canterbury Home Repair manager Reid Stiven confirmed they would now only fix earthquake-damaged wiring. The policy change came after EQC was hit by wiring bills of up to $50,000. “For this reason, our policy is to cash settle the claim where it is evident a repair to non-code compliant wiring is required as part of the earthquake repair,” Stiven said. “If the owner is prepared to make the property’s wiring compliant before the repair begins, we will be happy to repair rather than cash settle.” (Stuff.co.nz 12/08/2013) Why do homeowners need to seek a review by the “numerous robust avenues” available, for such work to be carried out as required by the EQC Act. It should be carried out that way in the first place. As EQC and the EQC Action group have signed a statement saying there is no material disagreement in the EQC policy then it seems that EQC have not been following the EQC policy.

We had to be confident our choices would strengthen the economy’s engine room, at the same time as we address social need. The economic outlook is for solid, sustained growth over the next few years.

Canterbury continues to make a significant contribution to our growing economy, with the lowest unemployment rate in New Zealand at just 3 per cent. While New Zealand’s economy is outperforming many others, and while our public finances are significantly stronger than many others, the National-led Government is committed to a prudent fiscal management approach. As we transition from a phase of recovery to regeneration here in

Christchurch, there is no question about our ongoing commitment to the people and communities of this city and this region. New Zealand needs Christchurch and Canterbury to be doing well and we’re committed to continue working constructively with local councils, the business community and other groups to ensure we sustain and grow the region into the future. Gerry Brownlee is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Budget must support Cantabrians THERE ARE a lot of things that Cantabrians will be looking for in the Budget next week. We’ll be looking for investment in the recovery, so that our city will continue to grow and flourish. We’ll be looking for the Government to take real action to sort out the mess at EQC so that people can rebuild, repair and get on with their lives. And thousands of us will be looking for the Government to increase funding for the health and wellbeing of Cantabrians, because right now the Government isn’t doing enough to support a vulnerable region. Documents obtained by Labour’s health spokesperson Annette King ahead of next week’s Budget show that the Canterbury District Health Board will be facing a cut of $35 million in the year ahead. While the Government has earmarked $1.303 billion for the CDHB, an increase of $26 million, a population growth of 2.98 per cent and inflation hasn’t been accounted for. Once you adjust the numbers to accommodate those factors,

Canterbury’s health system comes up $35 million short. This is unacceptable for a system that we know to be suffering. The CDHB has done a fantastic job of leading Canterbury following the earthquake and it’s time that the Government provided them with the extra support they’re asking for. The sharp end of these cuts is that over 22,000 people in the past five years were refused the operations they need. We’ve heard time and again about how it is universally proven that demand for mental health services increases in regions following a disaster. We’ve heard about how the numbers of people seeking out that support are climbing, but the services are limited because of funding. The Government’s out of touch on this one – their response continues to be that it’s just ‘business as usual’ but they haven’t stopped there – they’ve made Canterbury the most underfunded DHB in the country. In next week’s Budget all eyes will be on if they can finally deliver the support our health system needs to keep local people.

The Big Question

Last week Finance Minister Bill English ruled out offering tax cuts in this year’s Budget. However, Prime Minister John Key has signalled National will campaign in 2017 on a $3 billion package of tax cuts. We asked Christchurch residents if they would vote for National on the back of those cuts or if they saw the move as an election bribe.

Kathleen Coster, retired. I would still vote for him. I don’t see it as an election bribe. I think he has done a great job with the country and I will definitely vote for him again.

Liam Boardman, student. I wouldn’t vote for John Key either way. Campaigning on tax cuts is really bad policy, purely because while money is important there are more things that the government does than take our money and then give it back to us.

Bill Milne, retired. I wouldn’t vote for him [John Key] because he is a backwards flipper, he goes back on most of what he says. He is always saying something else has come up so we can’t do that. He would say there are tax cuts coming but they would never happen. And I am an old National voter, but no more.

Would you vote for National if they gave tax cuts? Email editor@starmedia.kiwi

James Kerr, labourer. I understand where he is coming from but we are living in the now. Instead of looking at our problems now and saying some tax cuts could help now, we are looking too far ahead. I wouldn’t vote for him just to get a tax cut in the future. Don’t get me wrong I think tax cuts are a good thing but we need to address the here and now and what will help people out the most.

Prajesh Chhamabhai, University of Otago. I think it is an election bribe. There have been many mentions of tax cuts but we never really see them, or they favour the really wealthy. I think it is just election propaganda. If they don’t win then what happens then. The whole country is not in great shape money wise. Just look at Christchurch and what it has to go through.

Robert Logan, semi-retired. I would vote for him on the back of that. I mean they can change that figure can’t they. If the budget is not quite right with the cuts later on down the track they can change it. I think John Key has shown pretty good judgement with the country’s books and we are not looking too bad at the moment. He has had some tough things to work through with the earthquakes and all that.

Tamara Kirwan, university lecturer. Well it does look like an election bribe. He will need to pull out lots of things to encourage people to continue to vote for him. He has had some issues that the public have challenged him on, the flag is one that comes to mind. You think why can’t at least half of that cut now. How about they take the tax off fresh fruit and vegetables? That will benefit the people and give New Zealanders a real reason to vote for John Key.



Fred Bull, retired farmer. I don’t see it as an election bride. In the economic circumstances now if the country is not in a position to give cuts then we can’t give them. It is very difficult to forecast anything at this time. If you can tell me when the dairy sector, our biggest exporter, is going to come right then it will be easier to know when we can afford tax cuts.

“I really did feel like a part of me had been taken,” Mr Jones said. Footage from an overseas trip with Youth With A Mission, which Mr Jones went on last year, was stored on the equipment. He spent four months in the United States at a training school, before travelling to Nepal to work in the field for three months.

„„ By Emma-Jane McLennan A CHRISTCHURCH man is pleading for “priceless” interviews with overseas trafficking victims to be returned, after burglars broke into his car, stealing camera gear and his laptop. Videographer Dylan Jones (left) was often moved to tears while interviewing trafficking victims in Nepal. But now he’s facing a challenge of a different kind: All of his raw footage has been taken, and he’d give anything to have it back. “Seriously, they can keep all the camera gear. I don’t care about that one bit, compared to keeping irreplaceable memories and stories. I’d just be the happiest person if I got that back,” he said. Mr Jones’ car was broken into just over a week ago, in a brightly-lit car park outside Grace Vineyard Church. The car window was smashed and the gear – only in the car because he was working on a project – was stolen.

Song for sister after cancer death „„ By Emma-Jane McLennan ELLA TODD lost her “best friend” turned-adoptive-sister, Jamie-Lee Sullivan, to cancer six months ago. Now the teenager has written an emotional song about the loss, and has taken it to the world stage. “I thought it would be too painful, but I’m so honoured to be able to sing about my sister. The song is all about hope,” she said. Miss Todd, 19, first met Miss Sullivan at Majestic Church when the two were in their early teens. They struck up a friendship straight away: “She was so funny, she was lovely, she was my biggest encourager,” she said. Soon afterwards, Miss Sullivan mentioned she had left “yet another” foster home, and was couch-surfing at a friends’ place. That’s when Miss Todd’s large, blended family took her in: “She fit in straight away. She’s always called me her ‘sis’ and then she was just like to my mum ‘you are my mum now.’ It just felt right.” Miss Sullivan was succeeding at school and looking to join the army at the end of year 13, when

she took a medical assessment last March. She told her GP she had been feeling tired a lot. They checked for glandular fever, but results came back much worse: She had leukaemia. She went through three rounds of intensive chemotherapy, and the “absolute fighter” looked like she’d pull through. But then Miss Sullivan got an infection from a blood transfer. She died on October 25. The weeks prior to her death


were “very real” for the family, Miss Todd said. “She was the one we were worried about, but of course she was trying to look after everyone else. The time we spent with her before she died was so peaceful.” The last few months have been “up and down” but Miss Todd says she and her family are getting through with the help of their friends, faith and church family. Just a few weeks ago, Miss Todd - who says she has “always

And she did write the song “through many tears.” She debuted it at church, then was selected to perform it in Brisbane, Australia, with her performing arts ‘SWARM’ crew. On what would have been Miss Sullivan’s 19th birthday this week, Miss Todd entered the song into the

Our People

Mel Parsons

Singer/songwriter playing her Mel Parsons, talked to Caitlin Miles about her success at the Music Managers Awards last week, her South Island Wool Shed tour finishing and her upcoming tour to Germany So how did the Music Managers Awards go last week? It went well, it was a great night and I won the best independent tour so that was very cool to win something and be acknowledged for the hard work that goes into it, behind the scenes and everything. Those things are a lot of fun and great way to catch up with other people in the industry I haven’t seen in a while. Congratulations, what are the award shows like? It’s still insane, the awards shows are a completely different world. But on the other side of that I’ve been doing it for a long time so while it’s insane I feel comfortable being round it all and I’m pretty lucky being surrounded by the music industry here because they’re great people. A good chunk of the events is getting to catch up with people, it’s not all business, there has to be some play. The industry is small so everyone knows everyone which is what makes it great. You have been very busy touring, what’s the Wool Shed Tour been

like? It’s been really fun, we’ve just finished the South Island part of the tour, what I love about the tour is going out to the rural areas. Wool sheds have big spaces and they have their own vibe when I perform in them. They are quite nostalgic places for rural communities. Getting to tour as part of a comedy gig just gets everyone in good spirits. What’s it been like touring with the Sons of a Bitch? We travelled by horse truck for the first time, that was a different experience, really nice though, no complaints at all. Again it’s been so fun they’re great to tour with. We’re all very great friends, which helps so it’s just very fun and silly being on the road with them. You’ve got a show in Germany coming up, is this the first time you’ve gone? No I did a show when I was out there about three years ago. It’s a great place to do shows, I had a great time when I was there last, the people are really cool so I always enjoy performing and being there.

You’re also touring in Australia soon? I go over in June for some shows and then again in July. It’s another place I really enjoy going to tour actually, I think it’s because it’s similar to New Zealand, just a lot bigger. I’m also mildly obsessed with the animals. The wombats and kangaroos are cool. Unfortunately, I’ve probably seen more of them sleeping on the side of the road than actually in real life. What other places have you been to? Let me think, I’ve been to Canada, the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland and some other places too that I just can’t think of. Has one place stuck out? That’s a tough one. Everywhere you go there’s something cool and different, each place has its own interesting bits. Ireland was incredible, the place and people were just awesome. But every place has its great things and experiences. The style of my music really suits North America so I really love being there because of the audience.

music to a global audience How did you develop your style? Being a singer/songwriter I just want to tell stories. I don’t think I made a conscience choice in style, but what I do is a product of what I listen to and what I enjoy listening to. I didn’t set out to make a certain sound it kind of just worked. Who is your idol and why? Mark Knopfler. I’ve just loved his music ever since I was a kid. When you were growing up did you want to be a musician? I think when I was growing up I changed my mind nearly every week, I wanted to be a lawyer one week then I’d change my mind and want to be something else the next. I always loved music and I learnt to play instruments from when I was little, so it became the natural path. What instruments do you play? I learnt to play the piano when I was five and kept playing right through high school and when I was about 14 I picked up a guitar and that’s when I started writing songs and singing other peoples. I also played the drums for a while when I was 16. I’d only have a bash around for fun now though, I couldn’t do it professionally.

FRIENDS: Mel Parsons has been touring with Sons of a Bitch comedy duo Emma Newborn and Amelia Dunbar.

Have you got a musical family? My mum can play piano, I have three siblings, most of them could probably play chopsticks if pushed, and everyone enjoys music, but no one else in the family was mad enough to choose it as a career though. What made you ‘mad enough’ to pursue music as a career? It was always a passion, I studied a music degree at Auckland University, and then travelled around North America for a bit performing and writing and stuff and when I came back I realised if I was going to do this I needed to knuckle down. So that

was in 2007 when I decided to work on my first album. How do you go about writing a song, do you have a special spot where you write? No, I don’t have a special spot, for me it’s more about finding and setting aside time. I’m on the road a lot and being selfmanaged there is a lot of paper work and admin, so whenever I have a bit of time I try and write. What’s the journey been like so far? It’s great and it’s been really rewarding. Being self-employed you have to stay motivated, which can been hard at times but I have a wonderful audiences

and support base. I get a lot of enjoyment from the hard work I put it, so I feel really lucky. Are you creative with things other than music? I used to love painting when I was younger, and I like making cards and writing letters when I have time. But most of my creative energy these days gets channelled into my music. What do you think when you sit back and look at all the things you’ve done? I haven’t really sat back and thought about it, I never really have time too. When I look at my air points though I realise how much I’ve travelled and how

lucky I’ve been. So Mel did you grow up in Selwyn? I didn’t actually, I grew up on a sheep farm just out of Westport. Where in Selwyn did you move to? I moved to Springfield about six years ago. Why did you move there? It’s a great community, lovely people, and we have an awesome local gym. The big appeal geographically is being so close to the mountains, we have some amazing skiing right on our doorstep. It’s also nice to come home to somewhere quiet and peaceful in between all the chaotic touring and travel. Your lifestyle is pretty hectic. Do you get any down time? It’s a fairly busy schedule but I do book some down time, I love skiing, I’m a mad keen skier so I carve out time in the season round August and September so I can go up there. Living close to the mountains is ideal for that. That’s what I do in my down time. What are the plans for the future? As of right now I just plan to keep touring and writing music and performing well down the track. Advertorial



ith Europe leading the world in the wave of electric bikes, New Zealand is only just waking up to this new dawn and two Christchurch business partners are at the forefront of the competition. Riki Foulsham and Rhonda Wicksteed are behind Christchurch’s very own electric bicycle company, iCycle Electric. Although the seed was planted some eight years ago when Riki first experimented with retrofitting an electric hand cycle with a lithium battery pack with explosive results, they had to wait for technology to catch up. Opening their modest showroom on Cashel Street just before Christmas last year, they have put in the hard yards to ensure a quality product they are proud to put their name to. RIKONDA, an amalgamation of their first names, the pair traveled far and wide to find the experts to bring their vision to fruition.

With Riki’s background in engineering and Rhonda’s in assistive technologies, they developed the concept for a range of e-bike styles in a range of colours alongside an e-scooter and an e-drift trike in close collaboration with their team of engineers who are constantly refining their range for optimal efficiency and economy. Serious savings on fuel can be had with one bike battery charge only costing 8-12 cents, which takes you 50-70kms traveling at speeds of around 30kms. Popular with commuters to the inner city who are keen on saving money on gas and parking can still get some form of exercise with five power-assist modes. Visit Riki and Rhonda at the iCycle Electric showroom at 285 Cashel Street where you can learn more about the different styles on offer and test ride one, or go online to www.icycleelectric.co. nz for an overview of their products.

Big sister in the firing line THERE’S NOTHING quite like shooting small children with a paintball gun. That’s a joke. But it is what I found myself doing at the weekend, when I was dragged in as super-sub for my little sister’s birthday. Bella was turning 12, and we were celebrating. In not-so-typical girls’ birthday party style, she had planned a paintball party, commissioned a Star Wars cake and was given a mix of LEGO, sports gear and Bear Grylls’ latest book. She’s a cool kid, and I was happy to play taxi for the afternoon, shuttling a carload of giggly girls to play paintball out McLeans Island way. But there was one thing I was certain of – I was not to be involved in the paintball. “I’d rather not make little girls cry, thanks.” I was adamant. That is, until one of the girls turned on the tears and pulled out – before the briefing had even started – and I was called in to “even up the numbers”. The girls were thrilled. “I’m going to shoot you,” Bella said, as I pulled on the camo gear. “Just you try,” I taunted her. This will be easy I thought. I’ll be nice to them, they’re just little. The whistle blew, I snuck into a ‘great’ hiding spot, and next

thing – BAM – a paintball burst onto my visor like a birdsplat. I heard a cheeky laugh from the bushes. “Got ya already!” It was Bella. At that point, I realised it was war. And that small children liked to shoot me. And that I had no chance. One drew blood on my leg. Another shot me in the butt, which was apparently quite funny. The little ninjas snuck in and out of bushes while I stood

out (literally) like a big target. I got a couple shots in, but the wee ratbags had almost full protection from their anklelength capes. Mine only reached my knees. At one point, my other little sis, Jessica, 13, and I were talking. We were on the same team, so I was safe. Or so I thought… “My gun is out of paintballs,” she said. “See.” BANG – she demonstrated,

shooting me in the hand. “Ouch! You’ve definitely still got paintballs,” I said, wringing my hand, a red welt already showing. “Oops.” Finally I determined to find the birthday girl, and get myself one back. I tracked her down, stealthy, silent. I crept up, hiding behind forts and barricades, until I finally had a clear shot. I yelled out, pulled the trigger … and my gun really was out of paintballs. The girls had a great time, and I think they all agreed: There’s nothing quite like shooting the big sister with a paintball gun. – Emma-Jane McLennan, emma-jane.mclennan@ starmedia.kiwi

Escalators sharpen up firefighters for challenge IT CAN be difficult for firefighters to find places with enough stairs to train for the gruelling Sky Tower Stair Challenge. But Lyttelton firefighters came up with an interesting way to train for this month’s event walking and running up the escalators at Westfield Riccarton in their gear after closing time. The team spent hours walking and running up the escalators, which were turned on and going down, last Tuesday, until they tired themselves out. Mall staff were happy to let the crew train there. The annual challenge sees firefighters from all over the country race up the 1103 steps of Auckland Sky Tower in full kit and breathing apparatus to raise money for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand. This year’s challenge will be on May 28 with eight firefighters representing Lyttelton, as well as a Canterbury team, Governors Bay team, and four Selwyn teams. - To donate to the brigades’ efforts for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer NZ, visit http://firefightersclimb.org.nz/

You don’t have to take it anYmore


Disclaimer: The views, opinions & assumptions expressed in this advertising feature article are solely of the author, Bryan Staples, Earthquake Services.

If you ever doubted what I and others have been saying about EQC and insurers, then the last few weeks has seen them laid bare. • EQC says it is still less than one third of its way through the 6000+ botched repair jobs it has accepted, as new requests continue to pile up. • The High Court ordered a major insurer, which signed a contract for a couple’s rebuild and then baulked, to pay the settlement in full. • EQC wants to turn off the tap on second time repairs. • Insurers cry crocodile tears over the time EQC has taken to put properties over cap. • A landmark agreement saw EQC confirm that repairs must be to ‘when new’. • As a result, EQC and insurers will now face a surge of new claims, possibly as many as existing claims • This may include previous, unfair settlements It’s now 6 winters of discontent. You should not still have to be battling EQC or your insurer. You should not be fighting to get shoddy repairs assessed properly and repaired to what your insurance policy promised. Earthquake Services is New Zealand’s leading advocacy service and litigation funder on behalf of people like yuou who don’t have the resources to fight injustice. We take all the risks and charge you nothing until we settle your claim.* • Are you someone who gave in and cash-settled only to now realise you can’t afford to repair your house to ‘when new” condition. • Does your house still shake after the repairs have been done? • Do you live in a multi-unit dwelling where you are told to accept what other residents are accepting when your insurance policy offers more? • Not happy with our repairs? Or just want them checked to make sure they comply with building standards. • Have you ever looked under your house? We will. Earthquake Services is there to fight for you and we take all the risk. Here’s what some of our clients have to say: “We have been mistreated by our insurance company, bullied by their lawyers and pushed to breaking point. Bryan has helped us every step of the way... He is always available and always willing to help. He calmly talks us through our concerns and sends us on our way feeling confident and supported. Thanks again,” Jerry & Aimee, New Brighton “To Bryan Staples and crew - a big thank you for believing in the fact that New Zealanders like myself were to be really tested beyond reason returning to NZ to set up a business … You surrounded yourself with people who stood for justice, and positive accurate reporting, something quite rare in today’s world…” Business owner, Christchurch.

“We went to Bryan and Earthquake Services because we didn’t have energy, the resources, mental or physical, to try and sort this out. We had nowhere else to turn to. We have put our faith and gone through step by step with Bryan. He has calmed us down and taken this on for us. We want our home repaired or replaced – that’s what our policy says.” Gavin, Mairehau Whether you live in Mairehau, Marshlands or Merivale we will fight for you. Even EQC is now saying if you feel short-changed, you should commission your own engineering reports, builders’ estimates, legal advice and other expert findings, then bring these to EQC and request a reBryan Staples, CEO, Earthquake Services. examination. Of course EQC knows many people won’t know how to start this process, let alone be able to afford to do it. And when you do start, more often than not they say ‘We don’t agree and’ you are back to square one. We don’t take take ‘No’ for an answer We get the evidence and you pay nothing to us until settlement* • If your home is damaged, awaiting repair or demolition, come & talk to us. • If you are living in a home with shoddy repairs, we will get the More Dodgy Repai repairs your policy provides for. rs • Please don’t blame builders for dodgy repairs; blame the poor assessments by EQC and insurers who refused to budge even when builders told them the repairs wouldn’t work. We will be there for you throughout – providing advice and support. We won’t promise overnight success. Our courts have at least another five years of earthquake-related claims to resolve. Don’t be the last one through the door. I do advise you to act now to ensure EQC & your insurer repair your home to “when new” condition. Dr Michael Naylor, senior lecturer in finance and insurance at Massey University gives this warning. “Treasury will have to rapidly rework its estimates. They must be hoping that most Canterbury quake claimants do not realise the implications of EQC’s statement… because EQC has chosen to refuse to admit it was wrong, it has decided to phrase the agreement as merely reaffirming what it is already doing. This means that the concession is unlimited, as all prior claimants can ask for a review. This expands its liability hugely… The only way EQC can restrict the fall out is to play hard-ball with any claimants who ask for a review.” My team at Earthquake Services is ready to fight for you. You don’t have to take it anymore. The time to act is now. Bryan Staples CEO Earthquake Services

Taking gourmet duck to the next level

„„ Bridget Rutherford HUNTERS WERE not the only ones who had been looking forward to duck shooting season. Chefs from an Akaroa and three Christchurch restaurants have been working to come up with signature duck dishes to perfectly complement the 2013 Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir. It is part of the sixth Cloudy Bay Pinot and Duck Tasting Trail, which launched in Christchurch on May 6 to tie in with the beginning of duck hunting season. The specialist dishes will be served until the end of May. Chefs from Empire and Baretta, on St Asaph St, Merivale’s JDV and The Little Bistro in Akaroa have each experimented and come up with dishes to perfectly complement the pinot noir. Baretta will serve an entrée of confit duck leg, herb spatzle, duck liver parfait, compressed pear, orange and cress for $33. Empire will have the option of saikyo miso duck breast, candied kumara, braised daikon, goji berries and yuzu pinot sauce for $35. The Little Bistro has gone for a French style dish of braised duck leg crepes, anise poached blueberries, and parfait jus for $30,

PERFECT MATCH: Empire will be serving up a saikyo miso duck breast dish, matched with a glass of Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir throughout May. ON OFFER: Empire head chef Tadayuki Kuroiwa plating up the confit duck leg, herb spätzle, duck liver parfait, compressed pear, orange and cress, which will be served at Baretta with Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir. PHOTOS: JOSEPH JOHNSON

while JDV will serve confit duck leg, quince, celeriac, white bean cassoulet and orange jus for $55. All dishes have a glass of 2013 Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir included in the price. Restaurants from across the country are taking part in this year’s trail.

Cloudy Bay senior brand manager Ali Campbell the idea was all about eating seasonally which paired well with the beginning of duck hunting season. The trail allowed people to go along to any of the four Christchurch restaurants to try duck, which they may not have tried

before, and the wine together, she said. Cloudy Bay Estate director Ian Morden said the grapes for the pinot noir were grown in the Southern Valleys in Marlborough, in clay based soil, and paired perfectly with duck. “With meat as gamey as duck, it is important to have a wine that has a soft touch of acid to cut through the richness and strong enough flavours that do

not get lost in its earthy gusto.” • As part of the trail, people are invited to share their experience on Facebook to be in to win a restaurant voucher to the value of $200 for any participating restaurant in their region. They can upload a photo of their favourite duck dish to Facebook and tag it with #pinotandducknz and #cloudybaynz to go in the draw.

Winter woollies essential for Saturday morning sport DO YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT DIABETES? Melissa McDonnell

IT DOESN’T feel all that long ago that I was packed into the car, complete with Thermos of Milo and a bag full of jackets, hats and gloves as our family headed out to Saturday sport. I can vividly remember the icy courts and frosty fields as we would head to Hagley Park to play either my netball game or my brother’s rugby match in the early hours of Saturday morning. And now I find myself doing the same again. Although my eldest two children (aged 5 and 6) have been involved in various sporting activities over the past few years now, this is the first time they have been part of a “team” sport and it has extended to an official Saturday commitment. Two weeks in, and all seems to be going well. With a civilised 9am start, it’s a great way to kick off the weekend and with such mild weather of late, it’s been a pleasant way to spend the morning. With many in their team also being schoolmates, my girls love the chance to catch up outside of the classroom, and it’s also an

Key message from the WHO’s recent World Health Day was that diabetes in its many forms is treatable.

opportunity for us parents to natter about all that gets lost amidst the madness of school drop-off and pickup (plus it’s a great way to connect with other families in the community). Win-win all around and, so far, so good. Looking back on my childhood, sport played a huge part in my everyday life and taught me so many valuable lessons that I hold to this day. It showed me the importance of respecting not just the rules, but also your team-mates, opposition, coaches and the value of being part of something that is bigger than just yourself – and I want my children to learn and understand this too.

The only thing about Saturday sport that I am not so keen on, however, is the weather that usually comes with it. I detest being cold. It can literally stop me in my tracks and I can do nothing but be miserable (think Raynauds syndrome and poor circulation). Although we’ve had a good run to date, once Jack Frost starts making a regular appearance, I’ll have to mentally prepare myself, pack my Thermos, layer up, and just do it (or otherwise, send my husband). Yet seeing how much the girls have enjoyed themselves in only two sessions to date, and with another 15 years on the sidelines to go, I know I’m in for the long haul. My parents did it for me, and I am so grateful they did. Now it’s my turn. With that in mind, I’d better check out the sales and stock up on my winter woollies.

Diabetes can be controlled and managed to prevent complications. increasing access to diagnosis, selfmanagement education and affordable treatments are vital components of the response to the diabetes epidemic. Diabetes christchurch in collaboration with the canterbury Diabetes consumer Group is seizing this opportunity to educate their members and other interested parties by way of a Diabetes symposium that coincides with the 60th anniversary of the society’s formation. The society, the first diabetes society in new Zealand, came about through Professor Don beaven’s initiative in May, 1956. The cDcG provides a diabetes consumer link to the cDHb canterbury initiative programme. This will be a great opportunity for all people with diabetes to hear some renowned speakers on a broad range of diabetes topics. Pharmaceutical providers Pharmaco, PHaRMac, nZMs, Medi’Ray, Medtronic, novo nordisk, and sanofi, will have tables displaying their latest diabetes information and management tools. The symposium begins on saturday,

May 28th at 9.00am with Dr Helen Lunt taking us through some of the newer diabetes technologies, treatments and research, followed by steve Percival talking about High Risk Feet and preventing foot complications. nurse Prescriber, Lupe tu’ulua, follows then we have a cooking demonstration by Jax Hamilton. after lunch we have Janet McKay from Pharmac, then from brisbane we have elissa Renouf and two of her four sons all with type 1 diabetes, sam and billy talking about their life with diabetes. Mc for the day is renowned Paediatric endocrinologist Professor Paul Hofman who will present a talk on “How to optimize diabetes management for improved quality of life including coping with burnout and managing expectations.” at night you can put your glad rags on and join us for a scrumptious three course meal, a trip down memory lane and good time at the society’s 60th Diamond anniversary.

Great place for mural

Exercise could help ward off cancer

A NEW mural believed to be the longest in New Zealand, will be visible both to locals and train passengers as they enter and depart Christchurch. An official opening for the 205m long artwork, painted on the PlaceMakers Riccarton fence, will be held today. As its title suggests, Rachael Dewhirst’s work Bon Voyage is a positive ‘well-wish’ for a journey. It was created using 200 litres of paint, 266 spray cans and 23 colours as well as countless hours of painting. Its inspiration came from Ms Dewhirst’s reflections on her journeys through France. “I believe it was right for the work to convey a sense of life, hope and vibrancy for the future,” she said. “The title of the work is just that, Bon Voyage, a hope for a safe and enjoyable journey whatever and wherever that might be.” The river which weaves its way through the design and ties the different pieces together was a reference to the Avon River. Figurative silhouettes and block forms can be seen, some distinguishable as animals,

ACCORDING TO a recent study, pounding the pavements could help to ward off more than a dozen different types of cancer. The major study, carried out by the National Cancer Institute in Maryland, United States, analysed 1.4 million people, and the results fell firmly in favour of exercisers. Those who did more physical activity were 42 per cent less likely to develop oesophageal cancer, and 27 per cent less likely to develop tumours in the liver. Exercises were also had 26 per cent less risk of lung cancer and were 23 per cent less likely to suffer from kidney cancer. In spite of exercise having a range of proven health benefits, 31 per cent of us aren’t active enough and scientists say inactivity is all too common, with 31 per cent of people worldwide not meeting the recommended levels of exercise. Dr Steven Moore, of the National Cancer Institute, said if working out decreases the risk of cancer this should be relevant to public health officials and anyone involved in prevention of the disease. While exercising had a particular impact on certain types

boats, landscapes and parts of architectural forms. Other elements are more abstract with the intention of leaving the work open to interpretation and imagination of individual viewers. SCAPE public art director Deborah McCormick said the mural would transform another blank canvas into an attractive

work of art for locals and visitors to enjoy. “It will also provide much needed vibrancy and a sense of optimism to a traditionally industrial area.” PlaceMakers Riccarton owner operator Grant Close said he hoped it would be a legacy public artwork in the city’s revival.

of cancer, overall, exercising reduced the risk of any type of cancer by seven per cent. As part of the research, scientists looked at data from 12 US and European studies carried out between 1987 and 2004, and compared levels of physical activity with the incidence of various different types of cancer. During an average of 11 years of follow-up 186,932 cancers were identified among the 1.4 million people in the study. “These findings support promoting physical activity as a key component of population-wide cancer prevention and control efforts,” Dr Moore told the Daily Mail. A previous study from University College London found only two-and-a-half hours of moderate exercise per week can suppress the inflammation in the body believed to be linked to cancer. While the results in the most recent cancer study showed promising evidence of the importance of exercise, Dr Moore told the Daily Mail that he could not fully exclude the possibility that diet, smoking and other factors may affect the results.

Career in headwear at a peak

„„ By Emma-Jane McLennan “I’VE JUST got to seize every opportunity I can.” That’s the mantra driving Adrien Taylor, who left a highprofile broadcast career to travel overseas, film a climate change documentary and start two different businesses – in one year. The 26-year-old Christchurch man has found his latest success with Offcut Caps, a business creating limited-edition caps out of fabric scraps destined for the dump. “It’s just taken off, our first lot sold out really quickly and we just couldn’t keep up with it.” The business started soon after Mr Taylor left his role as environmental reporter at TV3 – now Newshub – last year. “I had no plans, I just wanted to start my own business and take the opportunities as the come,” he said. Soon after he was offered a contract to film a climate change documentary in Bangladesh for the United Nations. While he was there, he got the news his custom-made furniture ordering

business, Bamtino, had been accepted into a Lightning Labs accelerator programme. That business was barely off the ground before the second one started. The idea for Offcut Caps was sparked when Mr Taylor visited his father’s wholesale curtain business, and spotted a heap of fabric offcuts ready to go to landfill. “I said: ‘Can I buy them?’ He said no, you can’t buy them, but you can have them.” That’s when Mr Taylor Skypecalled his best mate Matt Purcell, currently living in Dubai, and they hatched the plan to start making the caps. Five months ago they launched, with a manufacturer in Auckland creating the highquality five-panel caps in limited edition drops.

The Offcut site is updated every three to five weeks with a fresh batch of one-off styles, which is a real point of difference, Mr Taylor said. “You don’t want to be walking down the street and someone else is rocking the same cap. That’s not cool for anyone.” The majority of sales are online, with stockists also in Auckland and Christchurch (The Collective at The Colombo and Encompass at The Tannery). And now they’re focusing on more of an international market, Mr Taylor said. “We’ve got interest in the United Kingdom, Sweden and the United States – which is the big one for us.” And the environmental conscience goes past the use of fabric offcuts. Every time you buy a cap, a tree is planted through Trees for the Future. It is part of Mr Taylor’s ongoing commitment to the environment. His mother drilled it into him as a kid and he’s lived it ever since, he said. “We need to really appreciate our resources for what they are.”

Protea is the king of colour if necessary, raise the planting area up above the surrounding level to increase water runoff. Another key to survival is to find the most open and windy spot in the garden as they love plenty of air movement around the foliage, making them ideal for coastal gardens. Because they are such a prized plant in the garden and also not fast growing, when they look healthy it can feel like a real accomplishment. After a couple of years getting them established, proteas will need regular pruning to keep the plant dense and garden-worthy. The alternative is they begin to look too leggy, and lose all the lower foliage. The easiest way of combatting this is to cut flowers for the vase each year, giving you a wonderful display inside while also keeping your plant reduced. Do not just break off the old flower buds, however, as this will simply cause new shoots to appear behind the old flower, eventually making a straggly plant.

Dylan Norfield looks at protea and the importance of pruning IF YOU ever wanted a flower to stand out in the crowd then the protea is the flower for you. The Latin name is equally grand, being named after the Greek God Proteus, who was known to change his form at will, and chosen for the genus due to the wide variety of forms it and its larger family can take. Protea has also been adopted as the common name, unless you are in South Africa, where they are known as the ‘sugar bushes’ or in native Afrikaans: suikerbos. It really is the royalty of the plant kingdom, with some species surprisingly easy to grow and a must for the flower arrangement. However, protea do require some specific soil, light and environmental conditions to thrive. The key to growing most species is avoiding wet roots. This is the principle reason behind many failures. The fleshy roots are susceptible to root rot and so plants will yellow and go downhill rapidly. With this in mind, add plenty of drainage – in the form of grit and sand – to the soil when planting, and,

Pruning 1. Cut flower stems back when ready for the vase, leaving 10cm of healthy leaves on this year’s stem underneath your cut. (Alternatively, cut stems back

immediately after flowers are spent, again to 10cm of healthy leaves.) 2. Leave any shoots that have not flowered as these are next year’s potential buds. 3. Remove any weak stems close to the ground as these will produce inferior flowers and use up vital plant energy. 4. Any longer shoots can be cut to shape up the plant, but remember the loss of next year’s flowers. 5. Never remove more than 30 per cent of all the foliage on a bush as this will have a very detrimental effect on the plant’s strength. This method of pruning is a general rule for all species of protea, but some species can be pruned harder. This will require some research on the species and a classic example of this is the king protea, Protea cynaroides. As it comes from an area of South Africa that experiences fires it has evolved to have what is called a ligno tuber under the ground. This, in effect, is a fat root that stores energy for the plant and has the potential to shoot away if all the foliage is lost, as in a fire. This gives us a great advantage when pruning as it shoots away regularly from the base keeping foliage to the ground throughout its life.

This rich, sweet onion soup is just one mouth watering dish from Vegetable Perfection by Kiwi chef, Mat Follas. INGREDIENTS 2 litres vegetable stock 100 g butter 1 kg large onions, peeled and thinly sliced 6 garlic cloves, crushed 250 ml red wine 50 ml sherry vinegar 50 g plain flour 8 slices French baguette 250 g grated strong Cheddar cheese table salt and freshly ground black pepper, to season STEP 1 Pour the stock into a saucepan and set over a high heat. Simmer until it is reduced by half to intensify the flavour. STEP 2 Melt the butter in a separate large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onions, sprinkling 2 teaspoons of table salt over them and stirring to combine. Cook until the onions become glassy and are just starting to caramelize and catch on the bottom of the pan. STEP 3 Add the crushed garlic, then the wine and vinegar, and continue to cook on a low heat, stirring occasionally, until

they are reduced and the bottom remains clean when the stirring spoon is dragged across it. STEP 4 Sprinkle the flour over the cooked onions and garlic and stir to combine. STEP 5 Add the stock and bring to a low simmer. Leave to simmer on a very low heat for about 30 minutes before tasting; add a pinch or two of table salt, if needed and preheat the oven to 180°C. STEP 6 Lay the baguette slices on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes until they are starting to crisp and brown. Sprinkle about 150 g of the cheese over them and return to the oven for another 5 minutes to melt the cheese to a golden colour. STEP 7 Put a little cheese in the base of four large serving bowls, then ladle the onion soup over the top. Place two cheesy toasts on top of each portion straight from the oven and serve sprinkled with black pepper.

In their quest for the quiet pleasures of country life, antique dealers Caroline Verschoor and her husband Jon Paul Saunier found everything they hoped for, and much more. “We wanted an old house, with some land and preferably a working barn that we could use to store our shipments of furniture from Europe,” Caroline says. “We had been looking for years when a friend urged me to take a look at a property - a prosperous dairy farm back in the 1800s - near Hamilton, Virginia. Not only was the farmhouse a perfect Colonial with a symmetrical centre-hall and four nicely sized rooms on each floor, but it also came with a huge barn, a spring house, a corn crib, a little pond and ten acres of the most stunning rolling hills.” Though Caroline did not study interior design, it has always been a passion of hers. “I read a lot of books and magazines on the subject and ten years ago I took the leap of faith and opened a shop,” she says. “But we closed it when me moved here because the barn is the idyllic location for that purpose.

COLOUR CONFIDENCE Growing older means embracing change and learning how to work with what we have to look and feel just as confident at 50, 60, 70 and beyond. As we grow older there are plenty of aspects of our bodies that change. Our metabolism slows down and we can’t get away with eating what we use to without it ending up on our tummy, hips and thighs. We can exercise and adopt a healthy diet to keep our figure looking the best that it can be, but there are other aspects we simply must accept and work with them, not against them. Not only can our body shape change, but also our skin tone and hair colour, and we find that many of the colours we once looked fabulous on us, seem to make us look washed out or just plain awful. If you’re choosing to “age gracefully” and allow your natural grey hair to shine through, then colours you once turned to again and again, will need to be revisited. With age our skin tone tends to become less even and more pigmentation appears as capillaries If you’re current go-to colour palette seems to be letting you down, the face is the best place to start to guide you. New York style consultant, Carol Davidson suggests women do indeed need to change the colours - especially those worn close to their face - as we grow older, or more “seasoned” as she puts it. As our personal colouring becomes more “delicate”, or soft and muted as we age, very bright colours can begin to overwhelm us rather than flatter us as they once did. “Because our pigmentation softens and

COSMETIC COLOUR TIPS FOR THE SEASONED WOMAN • As we age the bold, bright colours we favoured in our younger days ought to be replaced with a softer palette. • As our skin tone begins to become paler with age, try giving your complexion a youthful glow with a natural looking bronzer. • Nude lip stick on older women tends to disappear, so enliven your skin tone with a burst of pink or coral on your lips. • Bring out your eye colour by choosing a different colour from your eyes, like copper with blue eyes and mauve with brown eyes. • While black eyeliner looks stunning on younger women this can be too harsh on older women. Instead go for a softer colour like a dark chocolate, a striking sapphire blue or a deep purple.

we appear to lose colour (through the greying process),” Carol explains, “adding a bit of colour back into the clothing we wear helps us look more well-rested, vibrant and younger.” Carol advises that the changes needed aren’t radical and suggests that a watered down version of shades that once flattered us is the answer. “If you once looked fabulous in cherry red, then opt for a deep pink instead,” advises Carol. Discovering hues that bring out the best in what nature has given you there are a few helpful tests you can do. Look to the colour of your veins. Are they green, blue or purple? Whatever that colour is will be a high impact colour for you. Look to your eye colour to identify the darkest and lightest hues, and to determine the most flattering black, look to the exact shade around the rim of you iris. One thing stylists all seem to agree on is that women over 45 ought to avoid basic black as it’s generally too severe, and to opt for navy, charcoal, or a dark taupe, and shades that are more muted like warm pinks, teal, soft white (not stark white), and medium greys are universally flattering colours for older women. For women with grey hair stylists advise looking to the colour temperature of your hair. Look closely in the mirror to identify your hair’s different tones and highlights. A pewter grey, for example, will have a greenish tone, which will suit warmer colours, while a silver grey suits cooler tones.

A Wartime Evader Kiwi wireless operator Sergeant Eddie Worsdale found himself in enemy-occupied France when his Wellington bomber was shot down in flames on one night in October 1942. Having survived the crash landing, Eddie and a fellow crew member quickly set off in the direction of Switzerland, using the map and compass from their escape kits. They covered up to 30km a day on foot, receiving some food and shelter from French villagers along the way. They crossed the Swiss border after 18 days ‘on the run’, becoming only the 8th and 9th Allied evaders/escapers to do so. Eddie was given a job as a cipher clerk at the British consulate in Geneva, receiving and decoding messages, many of them top secret. On 5 June 1944, Eddie, together with LieutenantCommander William Stephens (an escapee from Colditz Castle), left the safety of neutral territory. Disguised as Frenchmen, the two evaders were guided by members of the Resistance to Toulouse. From here, they crossed over the Pyrenees, unaided, to neutral Spain. Eddie finally returned to England on 11 July 1944. To discover more about the people behind the planes, contact the Public Programmes Team on 03 343 9504 or email programmes@ airforcemuseum.co.nz.

Pump Legs For Healthy Hearts Whilst walking makes for a healthy heart there is another way to use your legs to boost circulation particularly if mobility is a problem. Keeping blood pumping to your heart without strenuous exercise is now possible with a new invention made here in New Zealand. Designed to work the calf muscles using a “treadle” action, just like the old sewing machines, Aircycle assists the calf pump mechanism to increase circulation, providing a range of other health benefits. “Those on diuretics who experience fluid retention and anyone sitting with legs down for any length of time can reduce swollen ankles with these simple exercises,” says Dr Matthew Parsons. Patients like Alex Simmonds have experienced the benefits first hand “I no

longer have swollen ankles and now sleep without pain or night cramps,” he says. Heart disease that is often caused by untreated diabetes and diabetic foot problems can be reduced with these exercises. “My diabetic ulcer has healed and all the pain gone,” says Richard Leighton. “My toes have stopped tingling and getting sore.” Aircycle exercises strengthen leg muscles, improve balance and relieve arthritic pain. Keeping your legs moving is not just good for your heart. It will help you remain mobile and independent too. Aircycles are available from pharmacies and Diabetes Christchurch.

Evergreen Gardens As our gardens move into winter it’s a great time to step back and evaluate if our gardens are visually working as well for us as we wish them to. The cooler months reveal the bones of our garden, as deciduous plants drop there foliage leaving the bare structural form of trees and shrubs evident. During the winter months its our evergreens that will create the majority of texture and structure. If you’ve noticed your garden is lacking interest once winters taken hold, a few well placed plants and reshuffle of your garden beds could give those ‘dull’ areas a new lease of life and enjoyment for you through the cooler months. You may consider the following plants to inject some evergreen interest to your garden. Michelias are the smaller growing ‘cousins’ to the well known evergreen Magnolias. With a similar brown ‘felty’ underleaf as a Magnolia, Michelias are famous for the profusion of white and pink flowers that bloom in spring - many of which are highly scented. Michelias can be used as a stand alone specimen or also hedged for a structural element in the garden that can be used to cleverly screen a blank wall or an unsightly view. Some varieties are smaller growing still and are well suited to reduced gardens where space is at a premium. The ‘standard’ range of plants - ones that have been trained or grafted onto a

standard plant - is huge and offers great options for all gardeners. Many species that have been ‘standardised’ are flowering and produce great displays. These can include Camellias, Kowhais, Viburnums, and Teucrium. Edible options are also available with standardised Cranberrys, Citrus , Blueberries, Olives and the well known bay tree used in cooking as a herb. Standards will not take up a lot of space in your garden, and with elevated foliage will not require a lot of bending down to maintain. Hegdes: An evergreen hedge can provide great winter structure with year round foliage. The key to a successful hedge is in the right selection of species. Some commonly used hedge varieties can require a huge effort to keep in a neat clipped form. Some species like corokia and portugese laurel will form a dense beautiful hedge that will only require trimming 2-3 times a year for a neat effect. Evergreen groundcover shrubs: Correctly spaced evergreen perennials and shrubs can provide year round interest while also providing a continuous carpet of planting that can out compete weeds, reducing maintenance. The range of colour and texture is only limited by your plant knowledge. A great example of this is Heuchera, which has been bred to provide

Power of Attorney The Protection of Personal and Property Rights Act 1988 allows you to appoint people you trust to manage your affairs under Enduring Powers of Attorney. These documents come in two forms, one for personal care and welfare matters and a second for property matters. In relation to your personal care and welfare, you can only appoint one person, (known as an Attorney) at any given time. In relation to your property matters, you can appoint one or more Attorneys and the Donor (the person making the Enduring Powers) can specify how these people will act on their behalf. An Enduring Power of Attorney in relation to Property can be drafted so that your Attorney(s) can act while you have mental capacity or only if you lose mental capacity. However, an Enduring Power of Attorney in relation to Personal Care and Welfare can only be activated when you have lost mental capacity. In September 2008 significant changes were made with the passing of the Protection of Personal and Property Rights Amendment Act 2007. There are wider options in the new forms. A Donor can specify that: • provision be made for Successor Attorneys to be appointed • the Attorneys be restricted from acting in certain circumstances • the Attorneys must consult with others, such as family members • the Attorneys must provide information

to others if those people should request it • the Attorneys are able to ask the Court to make or amend your Will for you. If you have Enduring Powers of Attorney which pre-date the Amendment Act, they remain in force. If you wish to do give instructions for new Enduring Powers of Attorney, the Donor must now be independently advised and their signature must be witnessed by either a lawyer, a registered legal executive or a trust officer from a trustee company like the Public Trust. We are often asked how to minimise the legal costs in completing Enduring Powers of Attorney. One answer is to give instructions for Enduring Powers of Attorney while you are able to do so. If you lose mental capacity and you do not have Enduring Powers of Attorney in place, your family or friends must make an application to the Family Court for someone to be appointed as your Welfare Guardian and / or your Property Manager. This is a much more expensive process, both in time and cost. Enduring Powers of Attorney are very important estate planning tools and we recommend that everyone should have these valuable documents in place, regardless of age. You should also ensure that you have a current and up to date Will. When making a decision on your Enduring Powers of Attorney or Will it is important to seek good advice from a team who understand how your decisions now may impact on you and your legal requirements.

SUZUKI VITARA ALL GRIP Price $36,790 Dimensions Length 4175mm; width 1775mm; height1610mm Configuration Four-cylinder, four-wheel-drive, 1586cc, 86kW, 156Nm, six-speed automatic. Performance 0-100km/h, 10.7sec

SUZUKI GRAND’S STABLEMATE Motoring Editor Ross Kiddie discovers secrets behind the wheel of the new Suzuki Vitara and the value it holds against its big brother. As the sport utility market constantly expands, so are more manufacturers adding versatility into that segment. The Suzuki Motor Corporation in Japan weren’t going to let an opportunity slip by, and have developed a stablemate to the ever-popular Grand Vitara. Simply called Vitara, the newcomer is significantly smaller than the Grand but, nevertheless, it does represent the values a buyer would expect from an SUV. And the Vitara has been designed to capture the imagination of buyers, it is trendy, funky and has bold, vivid colours which can be mixed in a multitude of two-tone variations. The Vitara lands here in five variants, if you take into account an entry-level manual model. Interestingly, there’s a choice of two (front) and two four-wheeldrive models, all powered by a 1.6-litre, petrol-fuelled, four-cylinder engine. The test car was the range-topping All-Grip

model Limited. In four-wheel-drive form the Vitara Ltd lands at $35,990, or $36,990 if you want two-tone paint. However, bear in mind that the range starts at $27,990, and there are a host of colour options and choices within the range. For that money the Ltd buyer gets a healthy range of specification; major items include panoramic roof, paddleshifters, satellite navigation, cruise control with speed limiter, smartphone connectivity, and reversing camera. The latter is part of the kit which earns the Vitara a five-star safety rating. As mentioned, the Vitara is powered by a 1586cc engine which is rated by Suzuki at 86kW with 156Nm of torque available at 4400rpm. It is a twin-camshaft type with 16-valves, and it works tirelessly. Even though it has the ability to rev freely, in the interests of fuel economy it is managed so that it works low down,

AWAITING COPY Ad Number: FG8164 Artwork: FG8164 Size: 9x4 Description: PACIFIC VISION INTERNATIONAL Account: Colour: F $ Filename: FG8164

the gearing arranged accordingly. Suzuki claims a 6.3-litre per 100km (45mpg) combined cycle fuel usage rating for the four-wheel-drive Vitara. Suzuki has departed from the continuously variable automatic which still sits in other Suzuki product such as the S-Cross which loans the Vitara its platform, and both have very similar engines. Instead, the Vitara gets a traditional six-speed automatic gearbox, and it stands out for its decisive shifts and ratios which allow for respectable acceleration and open road speed economy. The Vitara will reach 100km/h from a standstill in 10.8sec, and can complete an overtaking manoeuvre in 7.3sec (80km/h to 120km/h). While these figures aren’t electric, they are adequate for this type of vehicle. The Vitara feels natural through the steering, while the high quality

Continental tyres (215/55 x 17in) have quiet-riding properties along with high grip levels. Interestingly, the Vitara lands here from the Northern Hemisphere. It was developed in Europe and is built in Hungary. That matters little, it is engineered with the quality standards we have come to expect from Suzuki’s Japanese factories. The concept is interesting, and I really like the deliberate effort Suzuki has gone too to make the Vitara appealing in terms of bright colours and eye-catching design. If I was a Vitara buyer it would be the two-wheel-drive model well below $30k, it takes in all of the value-for-money aspects Suzuki have earned such a high reputation for over the years. And if you buy locally, there are many other advantages through the local dealer’s cost-free maintenance programme.

WORLD’S LONGEST RAIL BIKE JOURNEY World champions in rugby and rowing, New Zealand can add cycling as another notch on its belt. Home to the longest rail bike tour on the planet, Taumarunui is where the fun begins. Although rail bike tours exist in other countries around world, including our neighbours in Australia, futher afield in Korea and the US, Forgotten World Adventures general manager Paul Chaplow says none come close to the 40km length of the rail bike journey between Taumarunui and Stratford. Since 2011 this stretch of rail road has been used for a range of self-drive RailCart tours and their latest tour they have coined “RailBikes” is attracting high numbers of locals and travellers seeking a mix of history, nature and activity. Attracting over 6000 passengers each season (October - May), the company’s latest venture has hit the spot with those who have already had a taste of rail trails in Otago and are looking for a similar experience in the North Island. With it’s instant popularity with Kiwi cyclists who Paul says are a “hardy breed”, the company is considering offering bike enthusiasts the Ultimate RailBike tour that runs the full 142km line over two days. Custom designed and built in Hamilton each rail bike features a big comfy tractor seat and costs around $9000 each. The vision belonged to farmer,

former Waikato Regional Councillor, keen outdoorsman and dedicated entrepreneur, Ian Balme, who recognised the gem that the rail line was. Traveling along ancient Maori pathways and built on colonial bridle paths formed late in the 19th century, these modern

day rail adventures will take you through steep, winding rail roads across farmland and sheep flocks, through tunnels and along lush native bush gorges. Taumarunui makes a great base from which to explore the surrounding Ruapehu district where there are a

number of diverse outdoor activities in the area to make a real action packed adventure holiday. Close to the Ruapehu ski fields, acclaimed mountain bike tracks, World Heritage hiking tracks and hunting and fishing in the Tongariro National Park and the Whanganui River, there is something to satisfy every outdoor lover. Forgotten World Adventures has their own motel at their base in Taumarunui (from where all the tours commence) and for bigger groups their newly renovated Whanga Bridge House in the heart of Whangamomona can sleep a maximum of seven people. The quaint bungalow has three bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen a cosy wood burner and an outdoor barbeque area. Tours operate rain or shine and in the winter months their rail carts have plastic side curtains and rooves to protect against the elements for you to enjoy the dense bush and majestic rural landscape in comfort. To book your Forgotten World Adventure visit www. forgottenworldadventures.co.nz or call Paul Chaplow on 021 192 4620 or 0800 724 522 78.

All about the journey If group travel conjures up hordes of tourists following a guide waving a flag, think again, says World Journey’s Director and Tour Host, Chris Lyons. Group travel today can be the ultimate way to experience some of the world’s most exciting, challenging and exotic countries. For those who don’t have friends who share your particular ‘bucket list’ of travel desires, the idea of travelling alone or tackling a foreign language is too daunting, or you simply don’t have the energy to organise it all yourself, booking a small group tour solves all these problems. Group tours take care of all the nitty gritty travel details, offer company with whom you can share your experiences and a host to smooth the way should any problems arise. World Journeys creates and operates around 20 small group tours each year, selecting popular destinations such as the culture and landscapes of Japan, the exotic bazaars of the Silk Road, and the epic ports of

the Mediterranean. While some of these journeys are based around a cruise, others are land based, taking roads less traveled. New journeys for 2017 take you to India Burma and Bhutan to see the Royal Bengal Tigers at the Ranthambore National Park, the famed lemurs in Madagascar, and an exciting trip through Ethiopia and Kenya. With a maximum group size of 18, all tours are guaranteed to depart so you can book with confidence. World Journeys offer much more than just ticking off the sights on the well-trodden tourist trail. New cultures are yet to be discovered, local cuisine is to be savoured, and fascinating people are around each corner. Most of all, there is the conviviality of travelling in a small group. There’s always company if you want it and time to do your own thing. Every person brings something unique to the mix - there may be a keen photographer in the group who can give you some valuable tips, or an seasoned

shopper who has mastered the art of haggling in the markets. Life-long friendships have been forged on World Journeys’ tours, and many return to travel with them again and again. Many lifelong friendships have been

Warm up your winter in Dunedin

„„ By Mike Yardley WE KNOW winter is on its way, even though it’s been reluctant to flash its fangs. But when it does, take the plunge into the hot-tub of hearty southern hospitality, in delightful Dunedin. You’d struggle to find a comparably sized city that serves up such a spoil of fabulously distinctive visitor experiences. Richly blessed with flippered possibilities, the wildlife charms of Otago Peninsula are a must, although I also love heading to Portobello and Port Chalmers to embrace the elements, soaking up the panoramas on a coastal walk. However, if the weather confines you to the indoors, Dunedin’s stash of heritage draws always sets my heart aflutter. Savour one of New Zealand’s finest “old house” experiences, Olveston, vividly brought to life by an artfully narrated guided tour. The 35-room historic home, completed in 1906, was commissioned by a Jewish immigrant, David Theomin. The landmark Jacobean-style manor is clad in Moeraki gravel and Oamaru stone. Bequeathed to the city of Dunedin in 1966, the magic about Olveston is that it crystallises the sense of highsociety living, from a century ago. Larnach Castle, built in 1871 by the gold-rush-flush Australian banker, William Larnach, is always alluring, whether it be for the property or gardens. Dripping in drama and a myriad of stories, the sprawling property was purchased by the Barker family nearly fifty years ago, restoring the castle and grounds to their majestic glory. Celebrate the shortest day and the longest night by listening to Victorian ghost stories around the fire in the Castle Music Room. Explore the Castle by torch light, and end the night with a light supper. The Winter Ball at Larnach Castle, a highlight of the Dunedin events calendar, returns on

July 22. Soak up the historic castle atmosphere in the stunningly restored ballroom as you dance the night away in Victorian period evening attire. Founded in 1860, the Otago Museum is a perennial peoplemagnet, free to enter and absolutely brimming with treasures, with superbly presented Maori, Pacific and Classical collections. And I love the Sir Edmund Hillary Collection, featuring many of his personal items that he ascended Everest with, including his passport and camera. Soaking up the beach vibe isn’t normally something you’d associate with winter, but just as Dunedin has revelled in the annual polar plunge for over eighty years, beautiful St. Clair beach is a holiday favourite. The elegant Hydro, is a gorgeous beachside eatery serving tasty southern fare, great coffee and excellent milkshakes. At the southern end of the St Clair Beach promenade, under the shadow of Forbury Hill, the St Clair Hot Salt Water Pool is nestled among the rocks on the ocean edge. Dunedin has fostered a red-hot reputation for its ebullient festivities in winter. For over 20 years, the city’s Midwinter Carnival has fired up the Octagon and it’s back on June 18. The highlight of the event is the Carnival Procession which includes more than 1000 people, giant lanterns, costumed stilt walkers, dancers and musicians. Many months of preparation goes into the event to celebrate the winter solstice. For a complete change of scenery in the heart of winter, get your chocolate fix by following the hordes to Cadbury World. Chocolate Carnival will run from July 16 to 22.

GRANDEUR: Olveston House is a must-see for visitors. Bequeathed to the city of Dunedin in 1966, the magic about Olveston is that it crystallises the sense of highsociety living, from a century ago.

FAST FACTS •I booked my Dunedin accommodation through Hotels.com, which was effortless, efficient and packed with great deals. Whether you’re after a hotel or motel in Dunedin, you’ll find a rate that suits. Hotels.com Rewards gives you one free night after 10 nights booked – which can be banked for future holidays. Rewards members and mobile app users also have exclusive access to Secret Prices. I found the Hotels.com mobile app to be a simple, fast and secure way to book your perfect stay, on the go. www.hotels.com GLAMOUR: Dunedin’s mid-winter carnival is a highlight for any visit.

Whirlwind of social issues

A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams Directed by Dan Bain Review by Georgia O’Connor-Harding IF CANTERBURY Repertory Theatre’s first production of the year is anything to go by, they have set the stage for a brilliant season. The ending of A Streetcar Named Desire was one of the most sad and thought-provoking finishes to a play I have seen for a long time. If you are looking for a spirited evening filled with laughter A Streetcar Named Desire is not it. Intellectually challenging, the show is a slap in the face to those oblivious to the domestic violence still prevalent in our society today – in spite of the 1940s setting. As an audience member I was presented with a whirlwind of social issues including dependence women had on men in the 1940s, the affect of alcohol and the need for escapism. Written by Tennessee Williams, the play received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1948 and from the vast themes the play covers, you understand why.

POWERFUL: Margot Gray (left) as Stella Kowalski and Naomi Ferguson as Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire staged by the Canterbury Repertory Theatre. ​ The show begins when a vulnerable Blanche DuBois arrives at her sister’s apartment (Stella Kowalski) in New Orleans after losing the family’s home and business. From there, the show is based around the challenging relationship Blanche has with her sister’s husband Stanley Kowalski. In time, Stanley and Stella’s strained marriage is revealed when an alcohol-fuelled Stanley beats her for sticking up for her

sister making the audience gasp. And this violent outburst is just one of many yet to come. Stanley’s violence leaves the audience shocked, particularly when to everyone’s horror Stella re-embraces Stanley passionately following the abuse she received. The leading roles were the strong contributors to making the show as reflective as it was. All leading roles were well-cast and equally compelling in the

contrasting personalities they are portraying. Stanley played by Sebastian Boyle was every marriage’s worst nightmare. Boyle’s menacing persona was impressive making him one of the most unpredictable characters that you both feared and hated. Stella, played by Margot Gray, conveyed tenderness and was a sad portrayal of a women in denial of the abusive relationship she was in. And Naomi Ferguson as Blanche was a stand-out. Blanche is a complex character-sensitive, clever, manipulating and slowly becoming insane in a bid to forget her past. In spite of the challenge of playing such a complex character, Ferguson came across as executing her role with ease. I cannot begin to imagine how emotionally demanding this show must have been for the cast. And as for that sad and thought provoking end.

Centre Stage Survivor host named TVNZ IS sticking with a recent tradition of choosing existing reporters and presenters to host their lifestyle and entertainment shows, selecting Seven Sharp reporter Matt Chisholm to front Survivor NZ. With Miriama Kamo hosting Kiwi Living and Peter Williams at the helm of Mastermind NZ, Spy can exclusively reveal Chisholm will host the upcoming New Zealand version of the Survivor franchise, which will begin filming later this year. With his enthusiasm for being up for just about anything on Seven Sharp, Chisholm is a good fit for the Survivor brand. The forever cheerful reporter has been on several adventures since joining TVNZ – he was even happy to get nude on camera for a story about a new naturist camp earlier this year. The 38-year-old has settled down somewhat of late, having married his partner Ellen Cairns in a beautiful ceremony at The Homestead in Omakau in January.  The couple have since confirmed they are expecting their first child later in the

Presumably, Chisholm will be finished up with Survivor NZ filming duties on a deserted island somewhere by the time the baby’s due date rolls around. Ever since TVNZ announced they were making a local version of Survivor, speculation has been rife over who the host will be. Former Bachelor NZ star

Chrystal Chenery made a play for the role when she falsely announced she was the show’s new face. And just last week, Clarke Gayford told Spy that Survivor NZ would be a dream gig he’d “totally be into”.  No doubt both will be disappointed to hear the job has gone elsewhere.

But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9.

Clubs show interest in Jarryd Hayne return to the 13-man game, the Roosters have firmed as favourites for the former Eels No 1, particularly with the Eels closing in on re-signing Corey Norman. But Gold Coast, St George Illawarra and the Wests Tigers made no attempt to hide their interest on Tuesday, joining Newcastle in the race for the recently retired San Francisco 49er, AAP reported yesterday. Coincidentally, all clubs are

currently financially backed by the governing body. Dragons coach Paul McGregor made no bones of their want for the former Eels No.1. “He’s an exceptional talent. I’ve had a little bit to do with him through Fiji and NSW and we’re always after quality players and he is at the top level of that,” McGregor told reporters in Wollongong. “If he was on the market we would like to be in the mix.”

Wests Tigers boss Justin Pascoe told AAP the club is “always interested in talent”, while Gold Coast counterpart Graham Annesley is “open to discussions” with Hayne. “Any NRL club would jump at the chance,” Annesley said. The three clubs voiced their interest in Hayne one day after Knights CEO Matt Gidley said he would book a date with Hayne’s manager Wayne Beavis.

“We’ll definitely meet with his management and have a discussion,” he told the Newcastle Herald. “We can and will look at bringing in a marquee player, if we feel that’s going to help our squad.” Hayne, who sensationally quit the NFL in an attempt to play rugby sevens with Fiji in Rio later this year, has previously said he would only return to Parramatta.

Watch a tight encounter on CTV „„ By Gordon Findlater THIS WEEKEND’S feature match has all the making’s of a tight encounter when Timaru Boy’s High travel to Christchurch to take on St Bede’s. Timaru got their season off to the perfect start with three bonus point wins leaving them at the top of the competition after as many rounds. The team will be looking to make amends though after suffering a 58-0 thumping at the hands of Christchurch Boy’s High School on Tuesday. Meanwhile, St Bede’s find themselves in an unfamiliar situation having suffered defeats to Christ College and Nelson College. However, they scored in the last play to narrowly beat Waimea Combined 12-10 last weekend. The broadcasting of Canterbury secondary school rugby is nothing new. CTV has been filming the South Island’s elite first 15 rugby competition for over 10 years. This year’s coverage of the UC Championship will go to a new frontier, with live coverage on CTV for the first time thanks to

live streaming technology. Not only are games now live on the

regional television station, but can also be viewed from around

the country and even the globe, live streaming on ctv.co.nz.

The growth of the competition isn’t just evident in CTV’s live coverage, Sky Sports College rugby programme which, in the past has predominantly featured North Island matches, are committed to screening at least half a dozen UC Championship games this season.   Commentator Pete Smith has been calling the first 15 competition since 2000 and believes the competition’s new exposure, available with live streaming, will open new doors, especially for supporters outside of Christchurch. “With schools in this competition stretching from Timaru up to Takaka, there’s now the opportunity for supporters of those schools to watch their away games,” Smith said. Coverage of Saturday’s match begins on CTV at 11.45am with kick-off at St Bede’s scheduled for noon.

Warratahs opt for inexperience against Crusaders THE VOID of Kurtley Beale is something the Waratahs have repeatedly said cannot be filled, but David Horwitz will be given the duty of replacing him at inside centre in Christchurch against the Crusaders on Friday. Horwitz was the favourite to take over Beale’s mantle at No 12 and it is understood coach Daryl Gibson will stick with the 21-year-old, who has started in four of the Waratahs’ 10 games this year, the Sydney Morning

Herald reported Gibson joked – and confirmed it was just to see if reporters were “awake” – about the idea of starting Israel Folau at inside centre, but there have been discussions within the NSW camp about bringing Matt Carraro from the bench into the No 12 spot. Instead Gibson will keep the faith with Horwitz at inside centre, a young player backed by winger Rob Horne, who himself has also spent time

at second receiver during his career. “He [Horwitz] went well coming off on the bench on the weekend having limited preparation, so I thought he played well and he’ll be better for the run,” Horne said. “Whenever you get out there you definitely go better for that.” Even by his own admission, Horwitz will need to be more clinical come Friday night if he is to help the Waratahs do what

Horne has never done at NSW – win in Christchurch. “They’re such an attacking outfit that you have to be on to give yourself a chance and if you’re slightly off you’re going to have a long day,” Horne said. Horne deflected questions about his own form on the wing in spite of Gibson’s comments after the Bulls win that, “Every time he gets the ball he looks dangerous and I want him to play for Australia”. “I’m feeling

good,” Horne said. “It’s good to get a number of games under my belt now and I think as a side we’re starting to get a bit of momentum and doing the little things that are important to us well. You have to play at your best to give yourself a chance.” In other selection news, Jed Holloway looks likely to come back into the starting XV at No. 8, replacing Wycliff Palu who will drop back to the bench.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class with oomph

„„ By Ross Kiddie I REMEMBER well when Mercedes-Benz first launched the A-Class away back it 1997, it was deemed to be an affordable footstep into the luxury car brand. I drove the A-Class at that time and suggested it was a bit of a departure for Mercedes-Benz, but it was certainly a funky, trendy model which would suit those whose budget wouldn’t stretch to something more grandiose. Over the ensuing years the A-Class has grown into something far more complex as a series, and its price has crept up to a point where it must be considered an integral part of Mercedes-Benz’s psyche. The test car this evaluation focuses on is the A250 Sport, as its nomenclature suggests, it is a bit of a rip-snorter, far removed from the ideology of the first A-Class. In fact, I describe the A250 Sport as an A-Class on steroids. It’s not so much the exterior dimensions that have grown, the 250 is still quite compact at just 4.4m, but under the bonnet sits a 2-litre, turbocharged, fourcylinder engine which pumps out an impressive 160kW and

• Price – MercedesBenz A250, $67,900 • Dimensions – Length, 4433mm; width, 1780mm; height, 1433mm • Configuration: Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive, 1991cc, 160kW, 350Nm, seven-speed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 7.2sec • Fuel usage – 6.7l/100km

MERCEDES-BENZ A250: Performance hatchback.

350Nm, both outputs achieved in accessible parts of the rev band at 5500rpm and 1200rpm respectively. The 1991cc unit is not unfamiliar to me, it has sat in many of the Mercedes-Benz models I’ve driven in the last couple of years, and if you take into account the body shell of the A250 is a lot lighter than in other models at 1445kg, the result is a high power-to-weight ratio and swift performance. Take, for example, a 7.2sec standstill to 100kmh time along with a 224km/h top speed. By my stopwatch the A250 will also haul to 120km/h from 80km/h in 5sec which all combine to easily place it in the performance

car category. As quick as it is in a straight line, the A250 also handles like a hot hatchback should. It rides on huge sport specification Continental tyres (235/35 x 19in), by the sheer nature of their profile they are there to promote grip when pushed hard into a corner. I took the test car on part of the Scenic Route – State Highway 72 into the Rakaia Gorge bypassing Methven on my return to the city. It was a good run for the A250, it relished the challenge of those tricky gorge corners both up and downhill. Grip is phenomenal and body balance is well maintained. The A250’s suspension is a fully inde-

pendent set-up, and it carries drive to all four wheels courtesy of Mercedes-Benz’s 4Matic system. Prestige cars have this way of exuding feel through the chassis and you can actually feel grip from the rear when blasting out of a corner. I’m not saying the A250 needs four-wheel-drive to retain composure, but what I am saying is that it is nice feel when you get that sensation of drive from the rear. The spring and damper rates are such that ride comfort has been given priority, but that doesn’t negate the A250’s composure in a corner, body movement doesn’t override the quality of the suspension, and with so much grip on offer there’s never

a point where you feel you aren’t in control. Because the A250’s engine isn’t working overly hard most of the time, and with its light weight, there are constantly respectable fuel usage returns on offer. During my long highway test the engine was sipping fuel at the rate of seven-litre per 100km (40mpg) at a constant 100km/h, the engine spinning slowly at just 1600rpm at that speed. That resulted in an 8.6l/100km (33mpg) average when I took the car back to the dealership, those figures correlated well with Mercedes-Benz’s 6.7l/100km (42mpg) combined cycle claim. The A250 Sport lands here at $67,900, bearing in mind that other A-Class models list from $48,600. I knew I was going to enjoy my time in the A250 Sport. Not only was it good to be reacquainted with the A-Class after all those years, but I enjoyed its sophistication, it has grown into a performance car which easily competes with other European hot hatchbacks. But if that’s not what you want, there are other models which still relate to the ideology of the original, or with even higher performance, such as the A45.
