Brownlee scoffs at Treasury report „„ By Shelley Robinson and Gabrielle Stuart TREASURY HAS painted an improving picture of the beleaguered convention centre project. Yesterday it released a performance report on major Government projects throughout New Zealand, including four of the city’s anchor projects. The convention centre has moved from a red rating to a much-improved amber delivery confidence rating from its previous report. But Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Gerry Brownlee was yesterday scathing of the Treasury analysis, in spite of the improved report, saying it was done by people who “fluff about the place pontificating”. He said he had little respect for the reports or their analysis. “It is a rating system Treasury do for themselves,” he said. Mr Brownlee has blasted pre-


vious Treasury reports as “disrespectful”, calling a November report on anchor projects “utter tripe”. The latest Treasury report said the improved mark was because “early design and master planning stages” had been completed. But the Avon River Precinct project had no improvement from the amber rating. The Metro Sports Facility rates amber/green, the same as it was in the last Treasury report. The East Frame Residential project has been evaluated for the first time by Treasury and has also received an amber/green. The convention centre’s amber rating means that successful delivery “appears feasible” but significant issues exist that could be resolved. It comes after Plenary Conventions New Zealand, made up of Carter Group and Ngai Tahu Property, pulled out of the project in June. •Turn to page 5

Rise Up Christchurch


Thursday September 22 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

GOOD NEWS all round in today’s paper. A Treasury report on the big ticket rebuild projects has given a promising outlook over their completion dates. That is a major relief and big confidence booster to the city and all of the tourism, sports and business threads that will run off them and keep Canterbury’s economic wheels turning. Gerry Brownlee will have rightly had a smile on his face yesterday. On pages 10-11, we look at another Christchurch icon – Orana Wildlife Park. On Sunday it celebrates its 40th birthday. And in sport, Gordon Findlater reveals the new centre court for Wilding Park is not far off from being completed (page 45). It’s a huge step forward for the very historic Wilding Park, which has survived the earthquakes. It’s a shame the old green grandstands are gone. It was an incredible venue to watch tennis But that’s the legacy of February 22, 2011. Barry Clarke

Tour will commemorate heroic Canty soldier’s WW1 deeds THE BELGIUM village where a Canterbury soldier was awarded the Victoria Cross for gallantry in 1917 will be commemorated by a party of New Zealanders taking part in the 100th commemorative tour of the Western Front next year. Private Henry James Nicholas (right), of Lincoln, received the VC for outstanding bravery during an attack on Polderhoek Chateau on December 3, 1917. Professor of war studies at Massey University, Glyn Harper, said the “on tour historian” accompanying the commemorative tour, will describe the action that took place there following the Battle of Passchendaele. The tour party will commemorate the heroism of Private Nicholas and lay a wreath at a monument to the Kiwis who lost their lives at La Basse-Ville, a village close to Messines, where another New Zealand soldier, Corporal Leslie Andrew, was also awarded the VC. The 10 day centenary tour which commemorates the Battle for Passchendaele, where the New Zealand Division suffered 2700 casualties including 845 fatalities, is being organised by Stephen Parsons House of Travel. It starts in Paris on October 7, 2017, and departs from Brussels on October 16. The tour visits a number of battlefields and memorials, attends the official Battle of Passchendaele Commemoration and visits the grave of 1905 All Back Captain, Dave Gallaher. Private Nicholas was the first Cantabrian to receive the VC. A member of the 1st Battalion of the Canterbury Regiment, he attacked a German machine gun post single-handedly, shooting the officer in command and

overcoming the remainder of the 16 man garrison with bombs and bayonets, capturing four wounded prisoners and the machine gun. He received the VC from King George V “for most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty in attack.” As Sergeant Nicholas, he was killed in a minor skirmish only 19 days before the end of World War 1. Leslie Andrew survived World War 1 as a second lieutenant and remained in the military until being appointed commander of 22nd Battalion in 1940. His battalion saw limited action during the Battle of Greece but was involved in the defence of Maleme airfield in Crete which was eventually overrun by German forces. He relinquished command of the 22nd Battalion in February 3, 1942 and returned home to command the Wellington Fortress Area. He died in Palmerston North on January 8, 1969. • The tour is open to the public. Contact Stephen Parsons, House of Travel (06 350 7366) or stephenp@hot.co.nz

In Brief EQC CUTS DOWN ON STAFF The Earthquake Commission has confirmed it will slash staff numbers from 868 to 458 positions in January as its work in Canterbury enters its final phase. The confirmed structure includes 75 more positions than the original proposal in August. That will mean about 75 fewer roles in Hamilton, about 185 fewer in Wellington and about 150 fewer in Canterbury. The changes will affect staff on fixed term employment agreements to December, or on contracts for service. ALLEGED CON MAN DENIES CHARGES A man who allegedly conned an 82-year-old pensioner out of more than $90,000 made a short appearance in the district court this week. Kim Barwell, 55, denies all 66 charges. Barwell became frustrated when told his review would be postponed. In custody since his arrest in March, he said he is just “sitting in there rotting” while his fate is decided. Barwell will re-appear on November 28.​ ALLEGED DRINK-DRIVER NAMED A Lincoln man who claimed his car was stolen when, police allege, he had actually crashed it himself while drink-driving has been named as Kane Jarod Jordan. Jordan, 23, appeared in the district court on Friday charged with driving with excess breath alcohol, careless driving, failing to accompany police and making a false complaint. He entered no plea and was bailed to reappear on October 3.

News Uber drivers warned not to „„ By Gabrielle Stuart ALMOST 700 Christchurch drivers have been given warnings for illegally driving or planning to drive for Uber. The taxi service company has been locked in a dispute with the New Zealand Transport Agency after it ignored the rules requiring its drivers to get a passenger endorsement licence. The NZTA has sent warning letters to 693 Christchurch drivers, saying they could face court action, or up to $10,000 in fines, if they carried passengers without getting a license. If they ignore the warning and keep driving, the NZTA can also issue them a prohibition notice banning them from driving. Since April, Uber has allowed drivers without a license to ignore the laws and drive passengers anyway. But because the drivers work as self-employed contractors, they would individually be responsible for paying fines, not the company. Tickets were handed out to 129 drivers during a police crackdown on “small passenger service vehicles”, including both taxis

and Uber cars, in Auckland this month. Eighteen of the drivers caught in the sting were forbidden to operate and three cars were impounded. Christchurch police have not said if they are planning any similar stings here, but police spokesman Ross Henderson said the Police Commercial Vehicle Investigation Unit was working with NZTA to ensure taxi and Uber drivers were “operating within the law”. Although the service has only been running in Christchurch since March, local drivers make up more than a third of the 1934 Uber drivers across the country the NZTA believes are working illegally. Uber argues that it is a “ride sharing service” not a taxi service, so should not be subject to the same regulations. Uber spokesman Caspar Nixon said ride-sharing was not currently regulated in New Zealand, so Uber had its own “fast and affordable screening process”. “We have a screening process that we implemented when we launched in Christchurch, which includes background and driving history checks, but we are

currently working with the Government on how we can make it better, because the P Endorsement isn’t a great process to work with,” he said. The P endorsement costs $161.70 for a year or $458.90 for five years, and it can take months as drivers need to complete a course and get a medical certificate. But NZTA has said Uber driv-

ers are operating illegally without the licence. “This is illegal, as the law requires anyone carrying passengers for hire or reward to hold a passenger endorsement,” group manager for access and use Celia Patrick said. She said Uber’s screening process did not cover things the P endorsement checked, like complaints made to police about the

person, or charges laid that had not been to court, past transport service complaints or overseas criminal convictions. “As a safety regulator, we have no interest in standing in the way of innovation, but we have a responsibility to ensure that people carrying passengers for a living have been properly vetted and understand their responsibilities under the law,” she said.

Treasury rebuild report •From page 1 The convention centre has been shrouded in controversy, with the Government deciding it would do the $284 million project alone, after the relationship with Plenary broke down. The Star revealed recently that the project, which is set to open by the end of 2019, had already cost $74 million. An assessment of schedule risk is expected to go to Cabinet in November. Labour spokeswoman for Canterbury Issues Dr Megan Woods said it was a “pat on the head” for the Government but there was “still room for improvement”. She said it showed since the April exit of the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority there had been improvements. “It shows that a locally-led recovery is better than a centrally-led recovery,” she said. Mr Brownlee said Dr Woods’ comment showed how out of touch she was. Otakaro Ltd took over the anchor project from CERA. “Otakaro is a Governmentowned entity,” he said.

Ōtākaro Ltd chief executive Albert Brantley said the report showed Ōtākaro had “hit the ground running”. He said work on the Metro Sports Facility and the East Frame sites would be underway before the end of the year, and work on the Avon River Precinct was progressing well. The budget for the Avon River precinct, which includes the Margaret Mahy Family Playground, The Terraces, Victoria Square redevelopment and the North Frame community spaces and garden, is $116 million. The remaining projects are set to be complete in stages next year. The $800 million East Frame Residential project is set to include almost 1000 townhouses and apartments, to be built in stages completed between 2018 and 2026. The $300 million Metro Sports Facility was originally scheduled to be finished this year, but is now set to be complete by 2020. The Christchurch Schools Rebuild Programme, to repair and rebuild 115 earthquake damaged schools by 2022, improved with a top rating of “green”.

Drug dog plan for airports

„„ By Andrew King and Shelley Robinson DRUG DETECTION dogs patrolling domestic terminals are a step closer. Minister of Police Judith Collins received options about general screening for illicit drugs at domestic ports on August 11 as part of a plan to prevent and disrupt drug trafficking within New Zealand and between the North and South Islands. Canterbury Inspector Bryan Buck said it requires a change of law to allow drug-detection dogs out of the customs-controlled international areas into the domestic terminals. “From a policing point, we want to deploy drug dogs in those domestic areas . . . We know illicit drugs are moving about the country and that it is largely unchecked,” he said. Both Christchurch and Dunedin airports are known gateways for drug trafficking of methamphetamine from the North Island. In November 2014, Kylie Puna was arrested on Yaldhurst Rd after a drug-run ended with a police chase and a crash. She was found to be conceal-

ing 18.2g of methamphetamine, with an estimated street value of $18,200. Puna brought the drugs in through the airport. A woman in August 2014 was convicted to 12 months homedetention after she concealed $50,000 in cash and 56g of methamphetamine on her person before boarding a flight from

Auckland to Christchurch. On September 9, two men with gang connections were arrested at Dunedin Airport with a quantity of methamphetamine. Sociologist and gang expert Jarrod Gilbert said it would have a significant expense to roll out across the country, so a pilot programme would be the way to go. “When you are dealing with

hundreds of people and their luggage that will take time and money so the question is, will it achieve bang for buck?” he said. Inspector Buck said if it was just a matter of having the dogs there, it could be done tomorrow. “Finding the balance between protecting people’s rights and allowing the police to do their job is the key to its success,” he said.

News Poppi’s owner gets to say thank you „„ By Gabrielle Stuart A CHANCE encounter meant Coral Luscombe had another wish granted this week – a chance to thank the kind stranger who paid $1000 toward her dog’s vet bill. The woman helped Ms Luscombe after her papillon, Poppi, was hit by a car, and later anonymously paid most of the bill. But, by the time Ms Luscombe found out, the stranger was long gone. On Tuesday, Ms Luscombe was on the street putting out her bins when the stranger passed by, on her way to visit a friend living further down the street. “I just said, you’re her, and ran down and gave her the biggest hug,” she said. The stranger wanted to stay anonymous. But she asked how Poppi was recovering and stopped to give her a pat. “She acted like it was all in a days work, so maybe she does it all the time, but it meant so much to me,” Ms Luscombe said. “It was just one of those moments that makes you think, yes, there is good in the world,” she said. •Letters page 18

Key managers leave SCIRT „„ By Gabrielle Stuart AN EXODUS of workers is becoming a problem for major infrastructure projects, with less than three months until SCIRT alliance work wraps up. December is the deadline for about 130 infrastructure projects still to be completed by the alliance, which is made up of the city council, Government and five contracting companies. But, with the deadline looming, many key people involved in the projects are leaving Christchurch or finding other jobs. SCIRT executive general manager Ian Campbell said the number of senior staff and project managers leaving was particularly a problem, as they were often difficult to replace. But it was an issue SCIRT had expected and planned for, he said. “We can’t chain people to the desk and say they can’t leave,” he said. He said the board discussed giving retention bonuses to staff who worked until the end to encourage them to stay. But that idea was rejected. “It would be an extra cost to the programme and it is a dan-

gerous precedent to set,” he said. Senior staff were also being moved from incomplete SCIRT projects to work on private ones within the five contracting companies, he said. But he said the companies had agreed not to do that unless they could provide a suitable replacement. As of August, SCIRT had spent $2.08 billion of its total $2.2 billion budget for almost 700 infrastructure projects. Of the spend, 70 per cent was on wastewater system repairs, with just 10 per cent spent on roads.

As each project is finished, all the files and information is handed over to the city council, which plans to continue repairs and upgrade roads gradually. It is expected to take at least 20 years to return the roads to the state they were in before the earthquakes. The city council has budgeted $4.6 billion over the next 10 years for capital works. Of that, each year about $150 million would be put into transport budgets and $150 million into “Three Waters” infrastructure, city services general manager David Adamson said.

That would pay for the remaining earthquake repairs to roads, footpaths and underground networks, as well as the normal replacements and upgrades. City council Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee chairman Phil Clearwater said the city councillors were due to get a behind closed doors briefing on the situation at the council meeting today. They would have a better understanding of how much work the city council would have to do after that, he said.

News Where the wild things are: Orana Wildlife Park at McLeans Island turned 40 on Sunday. Bridget Rutherford looks back on the park’s history IT WAS September 25, 1976. The All Blacks toured South Africa, defying a sporting embargo, John Walker won Olympic gold in the 1500m and Australasia’s first drive-through lion enclosure opened. Mum, dad and the kids could jump in the car and drive through Orana Wildlife Park’s lion enclosure to get an up close and personal look at the big cats and watch them being fed. But the experience was scrapped in 1995 due to health and safety reasons. The big cats developed a taste for wing mirrors and bumpers, and some liked jumping on the roofs of cars. Visitors began tempting fate, leaning out of their car windows to take photos, with one family stopping their car and attempting to have a picnic on the grass in the enclosure. Fast-forward 40 years, however, and Orana Wildlife Park still offers an up close and personal lion experience in the safety of a lion-proof cage on the back of a 4WD vehicle. A lot has changed over the years and staff will look back on that as they mark the park’s 40th birthday on Sunday. The park was the dream of the South Island Zoological Society, formed with the intention of building a major wildlife park in Christchurch. However, it took six years to plan, fundraise and build it. What started as a stony riverbed was transformed by volunteers, initially with hand tools before they could buy secondhand equipment, into a wildlife park. On September 10, 1976, the

park’s first animals arrived from Australia. They included 18 lions, six of which were cubs, two tiger cubs, two donkeys, two camels, two water buffalo and two Shetland ponies. Nowadays the park, which sits on 80ha of McLeans Island land, has about 400 animals representing 70 species. Visitors can go and see Kidogo, the 23-year-old porcupine, Stumpy the rhino, or Jane the cockatoo – the park’s longest resident. Records show she came from Adelaide Zoo in 1978 and is about 40 years old. Orana Park – its original name – officially opened its gates to the public on September 25, 1976, at 10am. By 2pm, a queue of cars stretched 7km along McLeans Island Rd waiting to get in – that’s how popular it was. Two years later, in 1978, the spider monkey island was built – they were the park’s first primates. However, last year it welcomed a different, larger primate species – the country’s first gorillas. Western lowland gorillas Fataki, Fuzu and Mahali arrived at Orana last July from their birth place of Taronga Zoo in Sydney. Chief executive Lynn Anderson said the park raised 100 per cent of the funds needed to build the $6 million centre and bring the primates to the park. “There is no doubt the Giant Ape Centre is the most ambitious and greatest development in the park’s history, ever,” she said. The centre was built with the intention of a second species

of primate to come to the park, which will become reality next year when an orangutan arrives. Ms Anderson has been working at the park for 20 years. She arrived about nine months after the original drive-through lion encounter closed, but she remembers it fondly. She introduced the current 4WD caged lion encounter in 1999. “The idea came from being a child and sitting in the back seat with mum and dad and looking at the keeper in the cage feeding the lions and I thought, it would be so cool and exciting to be inside that cage with the keeper.” It is one of the most popular experiences at the park, along with feeding the three giraffes, she said. The park has two houses on site with staff living in them to supervise at night time, she said.

The story of Orana Park But sometimes, it is the visitors they need to look out for. “I once looked out the window across the office and saw someone jumping in the otter pool inside the enclosure – this was many years ago – he had also taken off most of his clothes. He was requested to get out immediately and he did get out. I couldn’t quite believe my eyes.” But when it comes to health and safety for the 45 staff working at the park, for dangerous animals, there is a “hands-off” policy, she said. “We actually promote natural behaviour. We want our gorillas to behave as gorillas would in the wild. It’s same for our lions.” The park is owned and operated by Orana Wildlife Trust, which is a charitable trust. It is not cheap to run and it relies on grants, community support and donations to keep running, Ms Anderson said. The revenue from entry fees goes straight back into the park’s day-to-day running and maintenance, while anything extra goes into new developments. A notable supporter of the park was philanthropist and Mainfreight founder Neil Graham, who passed away last year. “Neil was very committed to funding things that people don’t like to fund. He wanted to help us improve our roads, signage and toilets.” Ms Anderson said bringing a giraffe over from Australia costs about $50,000 just for transport. And each year it costs $225,000 to feed all of the animals. The meat for the lions is provided by three different companies, while nearby Raeward Fresh supplies the fruit and vegetables for the other animals. It costs $40,000 a year to feed the three gorillas – $800 a week in fresh produce. Eggs are also delivered weekly, Ms Anderson said. “Meerkats are very partial to a

hard boiled egg.” Ms Anderson said a difficult time was when the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes hit, although it did not cause significant damage. After that the park was battered by two floods and three snow storms. It had to close for about 40 days on nine separate occasions. “In an earthquake, the lions would jump up and the primates would call and get upset. But within a short period it got to the point that a lion would carry on sleeping without batting an eyelid.” Native fauna manager Alyssa Salton has worked at the park for 13 years, starting as a volunteer. Now she is part of the team that carries out Orana’s conservation work. A breed-for-release programme started at the park in

2000. The team breeds native New Zealand birds to be released into the wild, including kiwi, the blue duck and brown teal. Over her time at the park, Ms Salton said there had been a lot of change, but one of the largest for her was the introduction of the kea enclosure, which opened in 2009. Ms Salton said her favourite part of the job is seeing the kiwi eggs hatch. The kiwi will have an even better home in the future as the park begins building its New Zealand Kiwi Centre, which will showcase the work the park does in breeding our national bird. Ms Anderson said Orana Wildlife Park aimed to continue being a “world class zoo” over the next 40 years, which entertained and educated. “It’s like a canvas we keep adding to.”

Wagner’s Paralympic tear-jerker „„ By Gabrielle Stuart CHEERING ON Paralympic torch-bearer Marcia Malsa as she slipped, fell, then got up again and continued was one of the most moving experiences of Minister for Disability Issues Nicky Wagner’s life. The Christchurch Central MP returned last week from the Paralympics in Rio, where she was the first New Zealand Government minister ever to officially attend the event. She said she was left with tears streaming down her face as she sat in the stands amid an audience of about 80,000 people, watching the drama unfold during the opening ceremony. She said Ms Malsa, a Brazilian former gold-medallist, was unsteady on her feet and obviously struggling to walk as she carried the Olympic torch. “Three quarters of the way she fell. But someone rushed to pick her up again, and I have never heard a crowd come in with so much support. The whole audience, about 80,000 people, was willing her forward. There wouldn’t have been a dry eye in the house,” she said. Her four-day trip to Rio was Government-funded, and her

goal was to raise awareness of how much people with disabilities could achieve. With 21 Paralympic medals, including nine gold, the 31 athletes on the New Zealand team finished with the best per-capita medal haul in the world. As well as hosting an event for the Paralympians’ families and opening a new classroom built in Rio, Ms Wagner attended many of the Paralympic events, where she waved a New Zealand flag and “everything else I could” as she cheered the athletes on. She said she particularly loved watching the swimmers, who she said were “masters in the water”. “The difference between what they were like on the land and on the water was very noticeable. They often had to be lifted in and out of the pool, but they were so capable in the water and took great joy in it,” she said. Other highlights included watching Liam Malone take silver in the 100m, and seeing Sophie Pascoe’s family out cheering her on in ‘Sophie Pascoe Fan Club’ t-shirts, she said. She said the families of the Paralympians were everywhere at Rio.

CHAMPION: Nicky Wagner with three-time Paralympic swimmer Cam Leslie in Rio, where he broke his own world record to win gold in the 150m individual medley. ​

She said their importance was summed up in one of her favourite quotes from Sophie Pascoe’s autobiography: “I’m very grateful for the way my

The farm’s owners have agreed to sell the land, between Mt Vernon Park and Castle Rock Reserve, to the Summit Road Society for $1.8 million. Society president Bill Woods will put in $600,000 of his own money to cover a shortfall in available funds for the purchase. Mr Woods said a “substantial” legacy payment from the late Jack Hutchinson and some accumulated funds of the society were also involved in the purchase. Mr Woods’ contribution comes with the proviso that the park will be named after his late wife Linda who enjoyed walking in the Port Hills. The deal took five years to negotiate with the owners. Mr Woods said the proposed park was the largest remaining parcel of land in the Christchurch-facing section of the Port Hills. The society has about 300ha of land already in the form of Ohinetahi Bush Reserve, Omahu Bush and Gibraltar Rock.

Front row campaign gets a mauling „„ By Gabrielle Stuart A JOINT campaign by city councillors Jamie Gough and Raf Manji and council candidate Rod S Cameron has come under fire from their opponents claiming it puts their independence in question.

Cr Manji is running as an independent for Waimairi against The People’s Choice candidate Anthony Rimell, Cr Gough has been elected unopposed in Fendalton, and Mr Cameron is a first-time candidate running against four other independent candidates in the Harewood ward. Faimeh Burke, who is running against Mr Cameron, said what

you’re independent when you’re not. It is wrong to try to appear to be something you are not,” she said. Cr Manji said they were still independent, because joining to campaign would not affect their policies or how they voted after the election. He said they campaigned together in order to support Mr Cameron, a Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team manager, because they believed his experience and expertise would be valuable to the city council. But candidate Aaron Keown, who is also running for Harewood, agreed that compromised their independence as candidates. “I have been asked to endorse candidates but I won’t, because I think a candidate should stand for the people not for a group,” he said.

The CTV mayoral debate – why Lianne Dalziel and John Minto went head to head last week in the first mayoral debate televised on CTV. Star assistant editor Shelley Robinson took a look from the sideline THE VERY different lives of the city’s two mayoral candidates was apparent from the moment they walked into the New Zealand Broadcasting School television studio. John Minto brought his wife Bronwen Summers, who quietly knitted for one of her 10 grandchildren in the back of the studio audience, while current Mayor Lianne Dalziel brought her campaign manager who was glued to his cellphone updating his Facebook page with photos of his candidate. Standing at the lecterns, where the duo would discuss issues facing the city for the next half hour, Lianne, appearing nervous, fidgeted and pulled at her black tailored jacket, reassuringly touching her necklace. John, in a brown jacket reminiscent of a eccentric professor, stood pensive, hands clasped behind his back.

The campaign manager lurked close to Lianne, while Bronwen clicked away with her knitting needles, chatting warmly about the support John had at Hornby High School where he teaches. “I’ll put away my knitting before it starts. I don’t want to be on telly knitting,” she whispered. For the sound-check, the apparent gulf widened – the school teacher v the seasoned politican. “It was a fabulous day at Hornby High School today. We studied the architecture plans for the new buildings to make sure the rebuild goes smoothly,” said John. Sound check Lianne: “Today has been very busy. I greeted the cast and crew of The Changeover including actor Tim Spall and I must admit I am a bit of fan of him.” But it became clear during the debate that Lianne and John, could be great pals. If they joined

forces – by crikey Gerry Brownlee and his cronies would have their work cut out for them. They agree on more things than they disagree on. While you pick yourself up off the floor and dust yourself off I’ll explain why. They come from very similar backgrounds of social justice and unions. Right off the bat, they agreed with one another on the socalled ‘rock star economy’.

“Absolute myth” said John. “If you go through the east of Christchurch through Linwood, Aranui, New Brighton or west of the city to Hornby . . . you will find unemployment is high and families are absolutely struggling . . . we have an economy propped up by Government funding.” This was the moment, where I wondered why the heck Sir Bob Jones labelled him the “screaming skull” – he is a man

of the people and makes his points calmly. Lianne said: “I do agree that the rock star economy is nonsense”. Well okay then. They are just doing a few knee bends and squats – getting warmed up. Asset sales will surely get them fired up. John, standing for Keep Our Assets, was very clear that nothing should be sold and savings could be made by renegotiating the time frames for the anchor projects. And while we are at it, he mused, do you think the city council could maybe stop giving rich-lister property developers $300,000 of ratepayers’ money to put in energy efficient systems for their $150 million developments? Ah, nice one John, we enjoyed that immensely. He was, of course, referring to the city council giving the money to property developer Antony Gough earlier this year for The Terrace rebuild project. Lianne, deftly tap danced her way around replying to that – no way was she going to touch that particular bomb.

Lianne and John could be mates But she took the wind squarely out of John’s KOA sails. Showing some fire, reminiscent of the Lianne that 72,000 people voted for in 2013, she said, not only had the city council increased its asset base, in fact it did not need to sell anything anymore. “In terms of asset sales going forward there [is] nothing we need to be doing in order to balance the books,” she said. Erm John? “I’m delighted to hear it – it’s a big change from where the mayor has been leading the programme to sell . . .” Right then – what about those anchor projects then and that pesky cost-share agreement? A feisty Lianne was not going to take the blame for that particular balls up. The previous council tied her hands binding her to an agreement that it had to abide to even if the city council didn’t get its insurance payout. What rotters. But, said John, you are renegotiating it right now, surely you have some influence? What do you reckon Lianne, could we change the Convention

Centre then as it’s likely to suck the bone marrow from the taxpayers’ coffers? “I have as much influences as the viewer sitting at home – as much influence,” said Lianne throwing up her hands. “For some reason the previous council decided to leave the entire Convention Centre to the Government,” she said. Free buses then John? He has copped flak for his free

public transport – mostly because the city council can’t make that call. Oops. But he was prepared. Take $20 million from the New Zealand Transport Agency’s $950 million for roading upgrades and put it into the free buses – it’s feasible, surely the mayor has influence? Lianne wasn’t having a bar of it – you can’t change the bus routes because it is Environment Canter-

bury’s patch and if you do it means city ratepayers will be stumping up the cash for the Waimakariri and Selwyn residents to come in and out of the city. John was quick to spot a weakness. “I think that is very small minded comment which gives local government a bad name . . . we have to work with people.” (Dalziel interrupts) “Why shouldn’t they contribute to the cost,” she demanded. “Of course they should and that is a negotiation the new mayor will have to do,” said John. “Which is what I am trying to do,” said Lianne, almost under her breath. That was it. That was the only moment in the night where the two candidates really sparred. There was no moment more clear that both candidates are similarly aligned on social justice and empowering communities as when they discussed housing and its effect on mental health. Both want the city council to get involved in rent-to-own schemes. But when it came to insurance companies and their treatment

of residents, John had Lianne in a corner. “Being a nice guy has failed . . . the mayor should be saying [to insurance companies] this is not good enough, you get down and make decent offers to these people,” he said. It’s complex, said Lianne diplomatically, her top priority was getting the city council’s insurance settled so it could begin to rebuild the city. Cue credits. Well, after three years of carefully chosen, media managed written comments, it was a welcome relief to see Lianne once again in fine form, showing fire in her belly. And Sir Bob Jones shame on you, you big bully, John is certainly no screaming skull – he has quiet intelligence and is supreme under pressure. But to be honest, I like my candidates to really fight for my vote. In spite of that, I’ve had to steam open the letter containing my ballot form. Based on the debate I’ve changed my vote. I was not expecting that. • Watch the debate on CTV ONDEMAND www.ctv.co.nz

Well-being survey shows quality of life increasing THE LATEST well-being survey shows Cantabrians’ quality of life continues to rise, with fewer people still feeling the effects of the earthquakes. Minister of Health Jonathan Coleman and Associate Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner this week released the findings of the 2016 Canterbury Wellbeing Survey and Index. The survey is the first since the Canterbury District Health Board and Ministry of Health assumed responsibility for monitoring the psychosocial recovery of Cantabrians from Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority in March this year. It’s heartening to see 82 per cent of Cantabrians reporting their quality of life is either good or extremely good – up from 77 per cent last year. But we know residents continue to face challenges and need support. This year’s survey results found more people reporting anxiety about aftershocks. This is no surprise following

Gerry Brownlee the Valentine’s Day aftershock, which undoubtedly put people on edge again. While there are many signs of progress, the impacts of the quakes are still being felt by some. EQC and private insurers are working hard to resolve outstanding insurance claims, made up largely of the most complex cases, including multi-unit buildings where more than one insurer and one type of policy is involved. In September 2012, 37 per cent of survey respondents said dealing with EQC and their insurer was having a strong negative impact on their lives. This fell to 13 per cent last year and is now sitting at just 10 per cent. I’m looking forward to more positive progress in the Garden City over the spring and summer months. Gerry Brownlee is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Believe you me Coral has the heart of an angel as well and goes to the ends of the earth to help others in need. Shelley Sims: Nice to be amazed and not disgusted by the news today. Beautiful story thank you and speedy recovery to that cute dog. We said: This week marked the day New Zealand became the first nation in the world to grant women the right to vote – to mark the occasion, some of the region’s women in politics and leadership gathered

to award the younger generation in their efforts to promote equality. You said: Yvette Searle: Ladies don’t waste your votes – get out there and vote at next election – you know what you care about so do the right thing. Tania Young: Great to see that this was covered in the media as this was an amazing achievement for not just women of our nation but for our nation to be the first to identify that women are of as significant importance as men.

You said: Robyn Rodgers: No different to after the earthquake if you had stored water, seriously. Diane Gibbs: They can’t do this!! Laura-Lee Webb: It’s already happening. Very strong smelling and tasting! Raewyn Adams: Yuck, looks like we will be drinking bottled water.

Jill Ruthven: New Zealand led the way in the fight for women’s right to vote. For me, to not vote is a sign of disrespect for those who struggled for a right many of us now take for granted.

Former city councillor returning for a cause A former city councillor during the Sir Hamish Hay era is making a bid to return to local politics. Gabrielle Stuart reports DURING HIS nine years as a city councillor, John Burn served on dozens of committees, led the city council as acting mayor and had a say in many big projects which shaped Christchurch – but his proudest achievement was a humble footbridge. After 27 years away from local politics he is campaigning once again for a seat on both the Canterbury District Health Board and on the Fendalton-WaimairiHarewood Community Board, hoping to do the “small things that make a big difference to the community”. The Park Terrace footbridge, which runs between Salisbury St and Hagley Park, was one of those things. “I was the only one of the 21 councillors that wanted it. I said people have nowhere else to cross, it’s ridiculous, so I moaned on and moaned on for more than a year, until we got

our bridge.” Some of those “silly things” were where a community board member could make the biggest difference to the community, he said. He served as a city councillor until 1989, the same year the late Sir Hamish stepped down as mayor, and he said he enjoyed the lively debates in the council chambers over those years. He was involved in the council amalgamation being worked through during that time, and

he earned a public profile when he supported the Wizard in his “Telephone Box War” in 1988 in repainting blue Telecom telephone boxes around Christchurch red. A retired barrister, Mr Burn spent 23 years practising law in Sydney, only returning two years ago after the death of his wife, Wendy Glasson. She died after 12 years battling terminal lymphoma, which was what motivated him to run for a place on the health board, he said. “I spent an awful lot of time in there with her, and, quite genuinely, I enjoy hospitals,” he said. He said the doctors and staff at the hospital had always made him feel like “part of the crew” even during the most difficult times, and he hoped to be able to pay that back through work on the health board. He was also concerned about health board’s low performance in areas like elective surgery and cancer treatment, its financial situation and the amount of decisions that it was making behind closed doors, he said.


Major fundraiser to top up food bank „„ By Bridget Rutherford ABOUT 270 people will fill Christ’s College’s dining hall on Sunday to raise money to help top up the city’s food bank. The Jonny Schwass Sunday Lunch began in 2008 to raise money for the Christchurch City Mission food bank. Mr Schwass, a chef who owns Harlequin Public House, approached the City Mission asking to do the fundraiser lunch. He, along with a team of other people from the hospitality industry, cook up a three course meal for the visitors. The food is donated for the cause. City missioner Michael Gorman said it was one of the largest fundraisers on the mission’s calendar. Last year’s event raised $25,000 for the food bank, and Mr Gorman said he expected the same amount to be raised again. “It’s great fun, it’s quite casual.” New Zealand actor and comedian Mark Hadlow (right) will MC the lunch, and a $5 note signed by Sir Edmund Hillary will be

SUPPORTIVE: About $25,000 was raised through last year’s event. ​ auctioned off, along with other items. All the proceeds from ticket sales and the auction go straight to the food bank. Mr Gorman said the very first Sunday lunch was held at the Caledonian Hall on Kilmore St, before one was held at the Isaac Theatre Royal. “We’ve now had them at the dining hall at Christ’s College. It’s rather like Hogwarts from Harry Potter,” he said. “We’ve had people who still come who went to the very first one.” Tickets cost $80, and can be bought at http://www.eventfinda.co.nz/2016/city-missionsunday-lunch/christchurch

Pensioner stole $110,000 to play poker machines

„„ By Kurt Bayer A CANTERBURY woman who stole $110,000 from an intellectually disabled woman to fund her pokies gambling habit displayed an “astonishingly and reprehensible” breach of trust, a judge said this week in sentencing her to five months of home detention. The 66-year-old problem gambler, who was granted permanent name suppression, had enduring power of attorney over the woman with the mental age of about 10 from 1997 to February last year, the district court was told. But between May 2009 and February 18 last year, she made 450 fraudulent transactions from the victim’s bank accounts. The majority of the transactions were made at bars, taverns, and gaming establishments around Christchurch, the West Coast of the South Island and Auckland. Police say that she stole more than $110,000 in total. When police caught up with her, she admitted having a

“problem with the pokie machines, which she wants to seek help for”. Defence counsel Simon Shamy told the court the woman had been diagnosed with a brain tumour around the time the offending started. She was extremely remorseful, had repaid some money, and had vowed to repay the rest by selling her home to come up with the remaining amount, Mr Shamy said. “She’s at something of a loss to explain why, in her 60s, she’d started stealing from [the woman] who she was close to,”

Mr Shamy said. The victim went without sufficient and adequate clothing and accommodation because her money had been taken, Judge David Strettell noted. It was not clear whether the woman stopped stealing the money “because enough was enough”, or because a member of the victim’s family had started making inquiries about her poor circumstances. “It can only be seen to be a astonishingly and reprehensible act of breach of trust,” Judge Strettell said. “She was a person in a very

unfortunate circumstance herself and one who relied, in no doubt a very trusting manner, in you looking after her, caring for her needs and caring for her funds.” There was some suggestion that the woman may have been led by others who could have benefited from her stealing, the judge said, but found there was no way to say if that was true. He accepted she had shown true remorse and said it was “highly unlikely” that she will come before the courts again. Judge Strettell sentenced the woman to five months of home detention. As the woman had already repaid some money, he ordered her to pay $61,000 of reparation – including $30,000 this week and the remaining $31,000 within nine months. Judge Strettell also made a final suppression order of the woman’s name, along with the victim’s name and place that she lives, on the grounds that publication of their details would put undue stress on the victim.

„„ By Tom Doudney POOR VISIBILITY and an unfortunate choice of clothing are thought to be factors in the death of a man hit by a car west of Templeton last month. Todd Jackson, 48, was visiting from Queensland where he had been living for the last 10 years, when he died on August 26. Mr Jackson was walking along Newtons Rd when he was struck by a car driven by an 18-year-old man who lived in the Rolleston area. Police will not decide on whether charges will be laid until a serious crash investigation has been completed. Sergeant Grant Stewart said visibility had been poor when Mr Jackson was struck, as it was about 6.50am. This along with where he was and his “unfortunate” choice of clothing – a camouflage top and dark pants – were thought to be contributing factors. Alcohol was not a factor and speed was not suspected to be either, but the investigation was yet to formally reach that conclusion.

Our People

Malcolm Whalley

Making a difference – building Habitat for Humanity’s Malcolm Whalley is looking for volunteers to join him in building homes in Samoa before typhoon season hits. He spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about his experiences helping people after disasters overseas, discovering similar needs here in Christchurch, and the dangers of contracting “habitat-itis”

So how did these trips start for you? After the tsunami in Thailand in 2004 I and my wife, Jennie, wanted to help, and we didn’t want to just donate because with some funds two thirds will go into admin before it gets there. We collected a team of about 12 people from our church who wanted to go, and we kept nagging, because the squeaky wheel gets the oil, until they agreed to let us in. So we went for five weeks. And what was it like? It was quite shocking. There were still a lot of dead bodies there, so you could smell that death smell everywhere you went. We were building block toilets mostly, and as you were digging in the washed up sand you would find people’s wallets, or children’s toys. It was very

emotionally draining. And of course, we spoke no Thai language, so you were having to sign to communicate. We stayed in the top level of a resort there, but the entire bottom level had been wiped out and there was no power and no luxuries. Coming home after that must have been a shock too? Yes, we were asking why do we have so much stuff? We had a debrief afterward, which is important, because you do get a kind of culture shock. But after coming back we got involved in a Habitat for Humanity project in Ilam, and then we both got co-opted on to the board. After that trip we both had what we call in the industry habitat-itis: Once you do one project you don’t want to stop. Just making a difference in people’s lives, that’s what does it. We’ve done six trips now.

HELPING HANDS: Malcolm Whalley is trying to find about 30 volunteers willing to travel to Samoa to help build homes there before typhoon season hits in November. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Tell me about this trip? The wider goal is to build 300 homes in Fiji, Samoa and Tonga, where a lot of homes were devastated by Cyclone Winstone, but we have 42 homes we want

to build by November, before the typhoon season hits. It’s a challenge, but we can build them fast, because they are traditional style homes with no walls, and most of the components have

been already constructed at the resource centre there – we call it Bunnings. The cost for the volunteers is $2995, which covers flights, accommodation, meals and medical insurance.

homes in disaster prone areas And on some of our trips we have slept communally on mattresses on the floor, but this is in a house with hot water, so it’s luxury. With no walls on the homes, wouldn’t the wind just whip straight through when typhoons hit? It is actually better, because you don’t have a solid wall for the wind to hit, and they don’t have a whole lot of furniture. Usually everyone goes to the village hall until it passes. In one village in Nepal, the 68 Habitat homes we built were the only ones left standing in the village after the disaster there. And what are you looking for in terms of volunteers? The most important thing is just a willingness to help. We took a 75-year-old bricklayer to Thailand, and we’ve had everyone from electricians to lawyers. All you need is willing hands and to be physically able. But I don’t know if it’s just the time of year, but it’s been very difficult to find volunteers and put teams together. We’re also about to open our second Restore in Christchurch in October, so we will be needing more local volunteers too, even

just for a few hours a week. And tell me about the work you do through Habitat in Christchurch? Locally we’ve just finished 21 houses, which means there are 42 kids in that community who have been living either in substandard housing or shocking rental housing, who are now in homes. Of those 21, 19 families had children with health issues, and since they have moved into their new homes they have had no hospital visits, so that shows what a difference it makes. But we had a list of 47 families, and had to chose from them the 21 for the homes. That was very hard. It makes you realise there is so much need here, so much terrible housing, and the amount of poverty in Christchurch is unbelievable. So what do you do for work here? I’m an aircraft engineer for Air New Zealand, so in layman’s terms I’m essentially a mechanical breakdown help desk. And they don’t mind you leaving for these trips at short notice? No! I’m in a good position, because I’ve been there a few

years now, and have too much leave built up, so they don’t mind when I take it. But it is sometimes short notice, especially for disaster relief, or we have trips cancelled without much notice. And it doesn’t sound like you’d get a lot of time outside all this work, but when you do,

what do you do with it? We have a holiday house in Mt Somers, so we spend a bit of time there. Not much in winter, because there is no electricity, but a lot of time in summer. I met with a friend recently who asked do you still do four-wheel driving, because I used to do a lot

of that. But I said no, because it was an interest that was all about me and now I’d much rather do something for someone else. When you’re passionate about something you make the time to do it, and it doesn’t feel like work. And how did you meet your wife? We met through my sister, when she and Jennie did nursing together – and we’ve just celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary. And what is it that keeps you so passionate about this work? It’s just the fact we are making a difference in people’s lives. It’s not only a life-changing experience for the families we help, but for the volunteers too. When we have handover days it really brings tears to your eyes to see what it means to them. And we don’t just give houses away, it’s a hand up not a handout. The Habitat model is that families put in 450 “sweat hours” into their own homes, even if that just means picking up a paintbrush, so they are often upskilling too. So seeing the difference we are making in families’ lives is really special, although it’s just a speck compared with what is needed.

Alpine high over scenic South Island „„ By Mike Yardley EVERY KIWI should take this trip at least once. It’s truly the flight of a lifetime – and rightly billed as the Grand Traverse. A one-hour romp with New Zealand’s highest mountains, ice and snow fields. Short of being a mountain Thar, it’s the easiest way to enjoy an astonishingly intimate encounter with the summit of Aoraki/Mt Cook and the jagged peaks of more than 140 mountains that soar above 2000m within Mount Cook National Park. Like a rolling photo-shoot, you’ll stare down the snout of 12 major glaciers, the beautiful, turquoise glacier-fed lakes in the east, and the serpentine ice fields spilling down through the West Coast’s ancient rainforests. For more than 45 years, Air Safaris, a family-owned business headed up by Richard and Tim Rayward, have exhilarated visitors with their pioneering sightseeing flight, the Grand Traverse. On a crisp blue sky morning, I lapped up some majestic mountain ogling within the toasty confines of a Gippsland GA8 plane, where Richard joined our pilot, Leon Hunter, in the cock-pit. It’s pitch-perfect for this celestial pocket of the world, because it is so quiet and unobtrusive. Taking-off from their Tekapo base, I admire the sculpted landmark of Mt John and the shimmering turquoise magnificence of the lake which looks even

better, aloft. Tracking north, the crisp palette of blue and gold Mackenzie colours soon gave way to the jagged alpine terrain of snow and ice. Leon pointed out some of the vast high country sheep stations like Godley Peaks and Glenmore, home to the famous Merino breed of sheep, as we traced the braided channels of the Godley River all the way up to the first cluster of glaciers. We then had our first tantalisingly intimate encounter with the face of a monster mountain, the 3170m-high Malte Brun. This imposing range separates Murchison Glacier from the nation’s longest ice flow, the mighty

Tasman Glacier, which slithers down into Tasman Valley for 29km. The ice base is over 600m thick, replenished with 50m of annual snow fall. Heading west and crossing the Southern Alps, the relatively calm flight suddenly took on the sensation of being in a tumble dryer, as the plane was buffeted and bounced by a southwester’ updraft, as we threaded our way through the fortress-like mountains. It was nervously exhilarating. What struck me the most is the sheer expanse of the Southern Alps, a snow-capped wonderland that stretches wide and long in search of the horizon, like the alpine world’s equivalent of an infinity pool. Suddenly, the vast rainforest of Westland National Park loomed large, a great bosom of verdant green rising up the slopes, juxtaposed by the snowfield at the head of Franz Josef Glacier. From above, we marvelled at how this “river of ice” plummets steeply, almost touching the shoreline of the Tasman Sea. After a quick stop in Franz Josef, where the mercury was starkly higher than on the eastern side of the Alps, we lifted

off again, gasping in awe at Fox Glacier and Lake Matheson before veering east for a close inspection with more vaulted peaks, notably the bridesmaid to Aoraki, glorious Mt Tasman. But nothing compares to the ultimate frisson, a close encounter with New Zealand’s mountain monarch, Aoraki/Mt Cook. Leon flew a perfect circle adjacent to its summit to ensure all of us could savour the majesty of its cloud-piercing supremacy. Standing supreme with its snow and icefields tumbling down to the glaciers below, I gazed in awe at the summit, seemingly so close I could nearly reach out and touch it. The final romp back to home base gave us an encore viewing of the sublime Tasman Glacier and its braided receptacle, the Tasman River, which glaciallyfeeds the luminous turquoise brilliance of Lake Pukaki. I spotted some big bulky icebergs floating in the terminal lake. Finally, the burnt-pancake sprawl of the Mackenzie Basin monopolises the sweeping panorama, where clearly visible glacial deposits pepper-pot the golden tussocks and desert-like grasslands.

Everyone alighted from the plane in a sweet state of ecstasy, eye-poppingly overdosed by the extravagant visual symphony that is the Grand Traverse. After wallowing in such a head-swirl of achingly gorgeous untamed scenery, the adrenaline rush lingered long into the day. The biggest dilemma you’ll face is whether to try and photograph and video the rolling kaleidoscope of alpine wonders – or put the camera down and just drink it all in. Whatever impulse wins the day, it is unquestionably the flight of a lifetime. FACT FILE •Surrender to alpine theatre in excelsis with Air Safaris’ Grand Traverse.

Gardening Good day, Mister Tom It’s time to focus on tomatoes. Seeds sown now will produce delicious results. Don’t forget to branch out and try a few different varieties WORDS/PHOTOS: RACHEL VOGAN

GROWTH: You need the right tools to secure a top crop this season.

NOT ALL things in life need to be hard. For some, the challenge of growing your own ‘anything’ seems insurmountable; for others, it is as natural as riding a bike. The truth is that growing tomatoes is easier than it seems. All over the world, in the most barren of soils (think Africa), tomatoes are a staple crop grown every year. And yet, somehow, with extreme temperatures and little or no water they seem to produce a crop. So, how hard can it be? Not that hard at all. Like humans, most plants have a few simple requirements to flourish and thrive; the more you put into something the more you will get out of it. So if you fancy a crop of Olympic proportions, roll up your sleeves now and get to work, arm yourself with the best plants, soil, and fertiliser and put aside some time and, in a few months, you will be picking fresh, sweet, tasty tomatoes. Start with the best foundation. After all, you wouldn’t build a house on a flimsy base and expect good results, would you? For the best results tomatoes need full sun, and loads of it. It isn’t an option to plant them anywhere shady, or in an area with limited air movement. Sunlight is required to initiate the flower buds, aid in fruit formation and development, improve the plant’s ability to photosynthesise, and, of course, it helps ripen the fruit. So, no room for compromise here. The engine room of the tomato is the root zone. Healthy roots is where the plant finds its power to grow. Not only do the roots anchor the plant into the soil, they are the main way in which the plant absorbs nutrients – a poor root

RED: ‘Campari’ is one of the best varieties you can look at growing.

system is often the main reason a crop will fail. For a good, robust root system, prepare the soil as much as you can. A simple dig over with the fork is all that’s needed in the garden – don’t go crazy adding layers and layers of manure or compost. Yes, these are good for the soil, but they’re also laden with nitrogen, which encourages the plant to produce more foliage than flowers, e.g. more leaves than fruit. Add in a little organic matter to help the soil hold onto moisture, but don’t go overboard, it’s all about balance. While tomatoes will grow on the smell of an oily rag in third world countries, for the best results it’s best to feed them what they love. Healthy, well-nourished

plants will reward you with a sweeter, juicy harvest. I could get all technical about NPK and trace-element nutrients, but that turns most people off, so all you really need to know about is tomato fertiliser. This does what yeast does to bread – it makes it grow. Dig in a good amount of tomato fertiliser, which is everywhere in the

shops and pays dividends every time. Avoid using lime or anything with a highnitrogen content, like lawn fertiliser or super phosphate. The trick to getting more out of your tomato fertiliser is working it into the soil before you plant, rather than sprinkling it on top of the soil where it takes longer for the roots to absorb it.

Gardening Guide Hanging Baskets If you have no room left in your garden or you live in an apartment and miss having a garden, then hanging baskets are the perfect solution. Hanging baskets offer a seasonal burst of colour that you can plant to reflect garden trends or your favourite colour combinations. But don’t limit yourself to flowers; consider incorporating herbs or veggies for an edible sensation.

PESTS: Look out for whitefly, which can be a real problem for tomatoes.

If you want to have the sides planted, now is the time to cut some cross or diamond shapes into the liner. Alternatively, you can just plant the top of the basket and use cascading plants around the edges.

Now it is the time to plant the top of the basket. Pick a larger, more upright plant for the centre piece, then evenly space the cascading or smaller-growing plants around the edges. To view this full article and information on what plants to use when creating a hanging basket, visit us online at www.oderings.co.nz.

Select a quality potting mix. For our hanging baskets we use Oderings Potting & Basket Mix. This is a mix that Oderings specifically designed with baskets in mind. To avoid baskets drying out too quickly you can also incorporate sphagnum moss in the soil when planting.

Easy ways to introduce colour to your home Having colour that drips from the eaves of your house, balcony or deck is easy with these hanging baskets. But don’t limit yourself to flowers – herbs and veggies work great too! $


significantly aid in the development of your crop. If greenfly or white fly appear on your plants, deal with them straight away; they suck the life out of plants. A good strong blast with the hose may work, but it is risky. Soapy water will knock them back a bit, too. For a sure-fire method, I use Beat A Bug, a natural bug spray that comes in a ready-to-use trigger bottle. This was off the market for a while, but it’s now back in the shops, so hunt it down. My bottle sits in the garden under my seat and I blast anything I see – slugs and snails too – this stuff works every time, so any unwanted livestock in my garden gets the heave-ho quick smart.

Look out for the latest Kiwi Gardener – available Monday, September 26. twice that size is ideal. When it comes to watering, less is more. Now, this will sound nuts, but a good drench twice a week is all that is needed for the majority of the growing season. Frequent watering encourages the roots to sit near the surface to get moisture, whereas you want them to wriggle deeply into the soil to anchor themselves well into the soil to where the temperatures are cool. Surface roots burn easily and do compromise the crop if the soil gets too hot too often. If diamonds are a girl’s best friend then seaweed brews have to be that of the tomato.

If you don’t have time to prevent the shock of transplanting your seedlings, skip this section. However, if kindness is more your style, invest in some seaweed tonic to soak your plants in prior to planting. This is great stuff. Seaweed is packed full of goodies and nutrients that prevent the plant stressing too much at planting time. Simply half-fill a bucket or put a few inches of water in the wheelbarrow, add in some Seasol or seaweed tonic and let the seedlings soak in there for a few minutes, then they are ready to plant. Next, simply plant the tomato. If the plant is grafted, make sure the graft piece is above the soil to avoid it rotting off or being damaged. Otherwise, as long as the hole is bigger than the root ball, there is nothing to it. Water after planting. (If you have any rootdrenching seaweed liquid left over, water, then in with that.) Being such vigorous plants, tomatoes do need to be staked or supported in some way. It helps keep the fruit off the ground and also to support the branches, which become heavy as the crop develops. In windy areas it also helps prevent the plant from snapping off or getting damages. The bigger the stake the better. Bamboo canes are okay at a push – if using them, put in two or three around each plant. If, for some reason, you can’t plant in the soil, tubs and containers are good options for tomatoes. The bigger the pot, bag or container the better, each plant needs to have a root area of at least 10 litres – the size of an average kitchen bucket, though

Getting Started You will need a hanging basket, potting mix and plants, but you may also want to consider sphagnum moss and Oderings Total Replenish.

Fill the basket with soil to just below the first layer of cuts you have made in the sides of the liner, then firm the soil. You are ready to put in the first layer of plants. An easy way to get your plants through these cut holes without damaging their roots is to wrap the roots in newspaper and push it through. Remove the paper and then fill the soil up to the next layer of cuts and repeat the process until you are 5cm from the top of the basket. I always leave this 5cm so the basket is easier to water.

Striking a balance WITHOUT DOUBT, parenting four young children is a challenge. There’s chaos, high energy, and frequent stress but we’ve somehow stumbled into a familiar routine to make it work. It’s a mad juggle, but it’s now our norm and we wouldn’t have it any other way. But the most challenging aspect of having a large family is finding quality time with each of our girls. The demands of (almost) three-year-old twin toddlers are high. They constantly seek out our love and support and it’s a sure task to meet their roundthe-clock needs (not to mention, exhausting). While I accept this goes with the territory of having small children, my conscience is pushing me to not only meet their basic needs, but try and offer up some quality time with them both (as well as their two older sisters). Our five-year-old is fairly independent with dressing, eating and sorting herself out but is currently in a very gushy phase – constantly writing notes and drawing pictures declaring her undying love for her family. She still possesses a very toddler-like innocence, with her chipmunk tones and chubby cheeks and adores climbing onto my lap for a cuddle. Knowing this gesture has a definite shelf life, I cherish

a true, two-way discussion about interpreting her feelings and what to make of them. This was a parenting milestone for me. It felt as if there was a real shift in our relationship, where it was more about the two of us discussing an issue, rather than a mother teaching/preaching to her listening/learning daughter. It made me feel as if we are transitioning from the stage of my kids “wanting me” to be with them, as opposed to just “needing me”. And while I have no idea how this will play out in reality, what I do know is that this phase will also have a shelf life, and I embrace it wholeheartedly. In saying that, I won’t try and be my daughters’ BFF. But what I want to do is forge a trusting relationship in which they understand I am always there for them, and that I will value their thoughts, answer their questions and create an environment where they can express themselves freely. In order to foster that, I aim to try and spend at least 15 solid minutes of alone time with each of my daughters, every day. Yes, this will be hard, and quite possibly, I am being overly ambitious. But I also hope that as time goes on and their independence grows, this will result in more quality time with each of them. Well, I’m hoping so anyway.

these precious moments and pretty much drop everything to squeeze her tight. Our eldest, (almost) sevenyear-old daughter is well on her way to full independence. No longer does she need me to tend to her every whim, and she’s confident to make decisions, take action and report back on her many adventures. But she still

wants/needs me close by, and climbs into my bed every morning for a cuddle and quick chat to start the day. Her emotions run close to the surface and she’s working hard to understand them.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY... LEG OF LAMB WITH PRESERVED LEMON, THYME AND POTATOES Ingredients 1 Preserved lemon, skin only, flesh discarded 1 Leg of lamb ½ cup Lemon thyme, freshly picked leaves 4 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil 1 kg Waxy potato, red, scrubbed 1 tsp Sea salt flakes 1 Garlic bulb 1 Tbsp Flour 1 cup Vegetable stock, or light chicken stock 1 Lemon, cut into wedges Directions Preheat the oven to 200 deg C. Trim the lamb of any excess lumps of fat, and make four or five shallow scores across the surface of the skin on each side. Cut the preserved lemon into tiny dice, and roughly chop the thyme leaves, discarding any stalks. Press the lemon and thyme with two tablespoons of the oil over the skin of the lamb, making sure some is rubbed into the scored surface. Grind a generous amount of black

pepper over the whole leg. Slice the potatoes thickly (about 2-3cm slices), then place them in the bottom of a heavy roasting pan and toss with the remaining oil and the salt. Separate the garlic cloves but leave the skin on and scatter them among the potatoes. Place the leg in the centre of the dish, with some potatoes directly underneath, and the rest sitting around the lamb. Pour in the stock and place the dish in the oven. After 15 minutes, reduce the heat to 175 deg C and cook for 1½ hours. Adjust the time to suit the size of the leg – if it’s more than 2kg, it may need an extra 15-30 minutes. If you like your lamb well cooked, take a little longer. Remove the dish from the oven and place the leg and potatoes and most of the garlic on a warmed serving dish. Cover lightly with foil. You may like to turn the oven off and return the lamb there to keep warm while it rests. Place the roasting dish over a heated element on the stove top, and stir the flour into the pan drippings, stirring constantly and adding a little water to make a sauce or gravy. When it is thick and bubbling, it is ready. Carve

Rural girl to be face of fashion week „„ By Annabelle Dick FROM FARM girl to the face of fashion week, Zara Graham is a rural girl aiming for international supermodel stardom. The 17-year-old from Lincoln, has been selected as the face of the upcoming Canterbury Fashion Beauty Week 2016 after winning Canterbury Model of the Year last year. “It’s such an amazing honour,” she said. Miss Graham has been modelling for four years with the Canterbury Fashion Beauty Week founders modelling agency DS Model Management. Miss Graham grew up in Lincoln on a farm surrounded by four brothers. While she confesses she’s a “bit of a tom-boy” who loves the farm life and animals, she’s always been passionate about the fashion industry. “I love how it makes me feel. I love dressing up, having my make up done, wearing amazing clothes and definitely the confidence that comes with it,” she said. Miss Graham is studying at the National School of Aesthetics and plans on following the modelling circuit overseas.

Her ultimate goal is to become a Victoria’s Secret angel. Next month, Miss Graham will strut her stuff at the Canterbury Fashion Beauty Week summer collections show at the Lincoln Event Centre. More than 20 fashion houses will show their collections ranging from Cup Day fashion and resort wear to plus size clothing. Canterbury Fashion Beauty Week founder and organiser Denyse Saunders said this year is the first time the show will feature plus size models and clothing. “It’s had a huge response and it’s going to be really unique. I think women are sick of seeing young size six girls on the catwalk that don’t smile or have personality. We’ll see real women who

people can relate to showing real clothes that they can go and buy,” Ms Saunders said. She said the major show will feature lots of colour and men’s and women’s wear to cater to all people. Fashion week will also include an SPCA Op Shop fashion parade on Sunday, October 9 to support the SPCA and a hats and high tea event on Tuesday, October 11. The summer collections show will take place on Thursday, October 13 at the Lincoln Event Centre and Canterbury Fashion Beauty Week runs from October 9-14.

Theatre/Arts Evita production world class

Evita Produced by Showbiz Christchurch Lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Llyod Webber Reviewed by Georgia O’Connor-Harding EVITA IS the most beautifully poignant production I have seen in a long time. Showbiz Christchurch had big shoes to fill, producing a highly acclaimed musical about a fascinating woman – the second wife of Argentine president, Eva Peron.  I have adored Andrew Llyod Webber’s music from a young age and was excited as well as had high expectations for the show.  To say Showbiz Christchurch succeeded is an understatement – you could have been fooled for thinking you were at a show overseas. Or even better, audiences were transported to the steamy hot land of Argentina. The production was world class. From the moment the curtain lifts, the stage roars into life with the haunting opening number of Requiem For Evita involving the whole cast.  The Latin chant lamenting Eva’s death powered through the auditorium sending chills down the spine. The show then races back in time where a 15-year-old Eva moves to Buenos Aires after her first love affair with tango singer Agustin Magaldi. I did not know much about Eva before but from the portrayal in this show I saw she was an ambitious woman of the people that rose to fame before dying at age 33. Emily Burns’ impersonation of Eva was glorious and she is without a doubt on her way to stardom. She illuminated the show with poise and worldly professionalism. Her voice blazed through the audience with regal power. It does not take a rocketscientist to work out the role of Eva is extremely ambitious. But Burns conquered the role with elegance. Along with Burns, Jack Fraser as the role of Che was a powerhouse narrating the show, while criticising Eva on her morals as she rose to the top. He lit up the stage from the moment he entered with a Book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. Music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Based on characters created by Charles Addams.

BEAUTIFUL TRAGEDY: Jack Fraser as Che with Emily Burns as Eva Peron starring in Showbiz Christchurch’s latest production of Evita.

golden rendition of Oh What A Circus. The show is predominantly musical with rarely any speech at all. I can only imagine the strenuous difficulty of the music the orchestra led by Richard Marrett was required to play. The orchestra gave the show the magic it needed and I think as a city we are lucky to have such talented musicians. One of many highlights of the show was Burns’ performance of Don’t Cry For Me Argentina. Burns rose to the challenge and excelled in her own way rather than shadowing previous interpretations of the song. But Eva’s Final Broadcast where Burns sings a far more tender version of Don’t Cry for Me Argentina due to Eva’s fast approaching death is so heart-breaking it brings a tear to the eye. Eva Peron need not fear to be forgotten with this magnificent interpretation of in my opinion one of the most musically challenging shows ever created. Evita will be running at the Isaac Theatre Royal through to October 1. To book tickets go to http://premier.ticketek.co.nz

It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2016 KenKen Puzzle LLC. All rights reserved

The most annoying man in the NRL EVEN IF Michael Ennis’ NRL career ends without a 2016 premiership ring, North Queensland’s Jason Taumalolo reckons the Cronulla rake is already guaranteed one title – the league’s most irritating player. But Taumalolo did not warm to the prospect of finally silencing Ennis by bringing an abrupt halt to his playing days this week. Retiring Sharks No 9 Ennis is expected to be at his niggling

best in Friday night’s preliminary final against North Queensland at Allianz Stadium. Few would argue after Ennis copped plenty of criticism for taunting Raiders fans with his own “Viking clap” following the Sharks’ opening finals win in Canberra. For the record, Taumalolo reckoned he could see the funny side of Ennis’ dig at Canberra fans.

“It was pretty funny seeing him after the Raiders game, I couldn’t stop laughing at that moment,” he said. “But that is him to a tee. “He will be just as much of a pest on Friday night – it should be quite the battle in the middle.” But Taumalolo could not argue when asked if Ennis was on the “all time” most annoying players list. “I think he would be up there,

carpet pick of the week

but I don’t think you have to ask me about that,” he smiled. “I speak for most of the NRL that Mick is definitely up there as one of the most annoying players in the comp.” Taumalolo now has the chance to have the final say against Ennis. Taumalolo’s extraordinary 263m effort inspired North Queensland’s extra-time semifinal win over Brisbane last week.

It also helped end Broncos captain Corey Parker’s NRL career. One week later he can do the same for Ennis – not that he looked forward to it. “He is one of the best players in that position in the modern day era,” Taumalolo said of Ennis. “If he retires on Friday night it would be a pretty tragic way to end a career. “He handles himself well for a small body, he definitely puts his body on the line (in defence).”

New era for city’s home of tennis

„„ By Gordon Findlater AFTER MORE than five years in the doldrums, Wilding Park’s centre court is set to begin a new era in just over a month. The tennis centre has been without a showpiece court since the February 2011 earthquake. The new centre court will feature the existing concrete grandstand on the tennis centre side of the court. The old historic stand that surrounded the other side of the court has been demolished due to earthquake damage and will be replaced with a grass embankment. The previous court became an iconic venue in New Zealand tennis history. It was known as the country’s home of the Davis Cup for three decades. Christchurch has recently hosted three Davis Cup ties in as many years, utilising the indoor centre at Wilding Park. New Zealand Tennis had previously stated that Christchurch would act as home for winter ties and Auckland for summer ties. However, Canterbury Tennis general manager Hamish Cain

NEW SHOWPIECE: Canterbury Tennis general manager Hamish Cain believes Wilding Park will host more high profile events with a new centre court. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​ believes that will change with a new outdoor centre court. “We are really focused on making this the venue for Davis Cup regardless of summer or winter,” said Cain. The new centre court redevelopment is part of a six court rebuild. This will take the number of courts to 18 outdoor and six indoor. “Once we have the new courts finished and some development work at the front of the building, we will be back to our former glory and again be viewed as the


premier regional facility in New Zealand,” said Cain. Canterbury Tennis also plans to be part of the Nga Puna Wai sports hub, with its 12 tennis courts expected to be built by September 2018. Meanwhile, Wilding Park’s new centre is on track to be officially opened in early November. The first major tournament on the new courts will be the Canterbury Open. A number of New Zealand Davis Cup players are expected to play.

Brydon named MVP „„ By Gordon Findlater DAVID BRYDON was recognised as the standout player in this year’s National Hockey League, receiving the MVP award. The award was bittersweet for Brydon after his Canterbury Cavaliers were defeated 1-3 by Midlands in the grandfinal on Saturday. “The one we wanted was the national title, but it’s a pretty cool accolade to have and was unexpected,” said Brydon. The 20-year-old was instrumental in Canterbury’s run to the final. In just his second season with the Cavaliers, Brydon was promoted to centre-midfield after playing at left back last year. Coach Andrew Hastie was more than happy with Brydon’s display. “He’s got a super future ahead of him. He was the engine room of the team, with his tireless running. He’s also a great distributor and provided plenty of go forward for us,” said Hastie. Brydon will now turn his attention to international duties. He is all but assured of being named in the New Zealand under-21 team to play at the Junior World Cup in India this

FUTURE STAR: David Brydon, 20, was named MVP of this year’s National Hockey League. ​ December. There is also a strong chance he could find himself in the national Black Sticks team sooner rather than later. The squad to take on Australia in a transTasman series this November will be named in the coming weeks. It was a successful campaign for Canterbury at the tournament in Whangarei. The Canterbury Cats women’s side defeated North Harbour 3-2 to bring home the K Cup. Canterbury also took home the Ramesh Patel Shield, awarded to the best overall performing province.

QUITE OFTEN a total stranger will comment on a new car I’m driving. However, I wasn’t prepared for the lengthy conversation I had when I stopped outside my local pharmacy to have a prescription filled. I was driving Honda’s brand new Civic, and a man who had sighted the car from the other side of the street rushed over to talk about the vehicle. He was a Civic owner and was very enthusiastic about the newcomer. He knew all about its technology and design, and was delighted with its looks and appeal. It’s fair to say he was probably a buyer at some point, and he wanted me to tell him all about the car. At the time we met, the car had not long been in my care so I could only tell him the basics, but one thing we both did agree on was that the 10th-generation Civic is something rather special, especially in its design, its sleek and dramatic styling is quite simply stunning. Bear in mind that at this stage the Civic is only available as a sedan, the hatchback version will land next year. In the interim, the sedan is sensational in terms of visual appeal, even the basic-spec S version looks great, the RS with its sporty, add on elements really do give the car some stature. On the inside, the newcomer isn’t quite so dramatic, it is more conservative and typically Honda – functional and practical. I’m not saying it is plain, its design is meant for a user-friendly approach to use, and that it does well. The dash panel and display graphics do suggest that Honda, as a design company, is branching out a little, the digital elements are deep and vivid. In RS form, the Civic comes with a high amount of spec, major features include full leather trim, heated front seats (also electrically adjustable on driver’s side), cruise control (active on range-topper), dual-zone climate control, electric sunroof and comprehensive multimedia infotainment system, the latter projected through a mid-dash 7in touch screen. It also links to Apple CarPlay.

HONDA CIVIC: Sporty styling for RS sedan.

The items for comfort and convenience go a long way towards an inviting in-cabin environment. However, there is also a wealth of unseen items which are there for safety. Honda has an extensive advanced active safety suite, some features are available on the top-of-therange NT only, but on the RS I particularly like the lane watch camera which provides the driver with an on-screen view of what is rearwards of the car when the left-side indicator is activated. • Price – Honda Civic RS, $39,900 • Dimensions – Length, 4644mm; width, 1799mm; height, 1416mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, front-wheeldrive, 1496cc, 127kW, 220Nm, seven-speed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 8.2sec • Fuel usage – 6l/100km

That’s a healthy list for a car which comes in at $39,900. Take into account, too, that the range starts at $29,900 for the base model and ends at $42,900 for the all bells and whistles NT. And the excitement doesn’t finish there. Under the bonnet sits a. 1.5-litre turbocharged engine, there is a more traditional naturally-aspirated 1.8-litre unit as a lower grade option, but the turbo engine would be the one for me. It is rated with a healthy 127kW of power with 220Nm of torque listing all of the way from 1750rpm to 5500rpm. If you take into account that the area of peak power sits at just 5500rpm, there is little fluctuation of power anywhere in the rev band. That is helped by a seamless flow of gearing through the inclusion of a continuously

variable automatic transmission, the turbo Civic has dynamism not often associated with mainstream vehicles. While an 8.2sec to 100kmh from a standstill isn’t overly exciting it’s still no slouch, and the mere fact that the flow of power is so cohesive means there is always a feeling there is more on offer than the figures suggest. Turbocharging is the modern way of boosting power outputs from small displacement engines, along with providing respectable fuel usage figures. Honda claims a six-litre per 100km (47mpg) combined cycle, which I suspect would be quite realistic given the 6.8l/100km (41mpg) figure showing on the fuel usage readout during evaluation time. At 100km/h the engine is working over quite relaxed at just rpm, providing a 5l/100km (56mpg) figure. I took the test car inland to State Highway 72 and enjoyed its quiet motion and smooth ride. I like fully independent suspension systems, and the front-strut/rear multiple link system in the Civic has spring and damper rates biased towards ride comfort, yet they are set just firm enough to control body movement when a fast corner is presented. In RS form the Civic gets sticky Bridgestone rubber (215/50 x 17in) and they contribute to a dynamic handling experience. The Civic in its latest iteration is a class act; it had to be, Civic has a huge reputation worldwide for quality and practicality. Undoubtedly, Honda will continue to add to the series in body shape and specification upgrades. I simply can’t wait to find myself behind the wheel of another as it progresses through its lifecycle.

customers have real peace of mind


Building companies build show homes to demonstrate their workmanship, display innovative design ideas and present a snapshot into a new and luxurious lifestyle featuring all the latest in materials, fittings and fixtures. A show home can inspire you in a way nothing else can. You can absorb the ambiance they present, admire the innovative techniques, new materials and technology all in one place, under a roof that you may just select for your new home. At a show home you can ask questions, take notes and compare them to other builders’ presentations. You don’t have to visualise or imagine full scale from a photo in a glossy, you can simply see at a glance, often instinctively, features you like, things you would avoid and clever innovation that you never would have thought of. Best of all you will see the building


do for you.
