Drug use fuels a surge in burglaries

THERAPEUTIC: Eliza Kennelly, 8, named her teddy Izzie.

Cuddly teddies bring smiles to children in hospital „„ By Sam Pickering ELIZA KENNELLY has a new buddy to cuddle while she waits to hear whether she will need to have her appendix removed. The eight-year-old was one of many sick children in Christchurch Hospital to receive

a new friend to provide comfort while they are in hospital for surgery. Two hundred and fifty teddies were handed out yesterday as part of the joint venture between the Surgical Research Trust and children’s products company, phil&teds. Eliza said the initiative was

“really cool” and she named her teddy Izzie. A panda helped present the children with their new friends, and also gave them adoption papers so they could take their teddy home. “He’s very fun and nice and cuddly,” Eliza said. •Turn to page 4

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart RISING DRUG use is fuelling a surge in burglaries across the city. Latest police figures show there were 6407 burglaries reported over the last 12 months, 13 per cent up from the 5659 reported the year before. A second report shows methamphetamine, synthetic cannabis, ecstasy and opiod use in Christchurch are all on the rise. Police say the two are usually linked, and they are targeting drug use and supply to try to reduce burglaries and thefts. There has been a particular spike in burglaries in the southwest, with numbers in Wigram up from 95 to 109, in Hornby up from 77 to 113, and in Sockburn up from 96 to 136. Canterbury District Commander John Price said that as well as working to catch burglars, police were targeting receivers of stolen goods and drug suppliers to try to “break the cycle.” “We are focusing on drugs

THE NUMBERS •6407 burglaries were reported in Christchurch in the last 12 months •The figures are up 13 per cent on last year, when there were 5659 reported •Burglaries were most common on Mondays •2-3pm was the most common time for burglaries because they are a causation of crime. People commit burglaries to steal goods to sell, to buy drugs,” he said. He said Christchurch police had also adopted a national policy of visiting every home where there was a break-in, to show police were taking burglaries seriously. Halswell Community Project chairwoman Chrys Horn said a lot of people in the area had reported burglaries around September, but they seemed to have dropped off as the people believed to be responsible had been caught. •Turn to page 4

Thursday December 1 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

A BIG spread today on one of Canterbury’s favourite sons – Scott Robertson (pages 24-25). Robertson is coaching the Crusaders next season, and if his tenure with Canterbury and the style they have played under his guidance is anything to go by, the Crusaders will be very, very tough to beat in 2017. But reporter Bridget Rutherford gets much more out of ‘Razor’ than just rugby. He’s a good talker and communicator (no wonder he’s a good sports coach) and he reveals a number of interesting tidbits, including that famous or infamous breakdancing thing of his, and how he got his nickname. Also today we have the latest burglary statistics in Christchurch. And if you live in the west the news isn’t good. Burglaries there are increasing; not surprising with the amount of new subdivisions springing up. In sport (page 45), Gordon Findlater has a great yarn on 18-year-old Jessie Anderson, who is the youngest player named in the Black Sticks. – Barry Clarke

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

KEAS MOVE CONES

This week in history saw women vote for the first time in parliamentary elections on November 28, 1893. On the same day in 1908 work began on the Summit Rd. In 1964 Cashin Quay, in Lyttelton Harbour was opened. The engineering techniques used in reclaiming this area were unique in the world. On December 1, 1975, the Rolleston satellite town project was scrapped. On December 3, 1867, Canterbury Museum opened to the public in an upstairs room in the Canterbury Provincial Government Buildings. The collection had been assembled by Julius Von Haast. On December 3, 1972, the first Boeing 747 jumbo jet lands at Christchurch Airport, a Qantas flight from Sydney.

A mystery as to who has been moving road cones onto the road near the entrance of Homer Tunnel in Milford Sound has been solved. A group of kea were caught on CCTV footage moving the road cones that were sitting beside the entrance to the tunnel in case of it having to be closed. New Zealand Transport Agency staff couldn’t work out how it was happening until seeing the footage. It was looking at getting heavier road cones so kea could not move them.

Controversial flag removed from float „„ By Bridget Rutherford A CONFEDERATE flag that flies on the Santa Parade’s Dukes of Hazzard float will be removed after a complaint it had ties to white supremacy. Christchurch Santa Parade Trust received an email yesterday from a couple who said the flag was “highly inappropriate” and “culturally insensitive.” They wanted the float to be removed entirely. However, trust chairwoman Anne Jamieson said the float would remain, but it would not

fly the flag in Sunday’s parade. The couple’s email said the flag still represented the white supremacy movement, and it had no business being in a public parade. The confederate flag was one of three that represented the Confederate States of America, which were slave states, during the American Civil War. It later featured in The Dukes of Hazzard television show, as it was painted on the roof of the car, General Lee. Ms Jamieson said the trust

had responded to the couple’s concerns and said it did not bring politics into the Santa Parade. “It’s a kids’ Christmas parade.” She said the trust had forwarded the email onto police, who said they had taken note of it in case there were any protests. The flag was flown on the same float in last year’s Santa Parade, however, Ms Jamieson said they were not aware of it at the time. The same couple later contacted the trust to complain.

WEKA PASS RAILWAY

„„ By Bridget Rutherford MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel has given an undertaking that the Santa Parade will not “fall over” after the city council cut the event’s funding by $25,000. Last week The Star revealed the parade, which attracts more than 100,000 people each year, was in jeopardy because it received $60,000 from the city council this year, compared to $85,000 last year. Organisers were worried it would get into strife in the future if it could not find funding elsewhere. Ms Dalziel said she was looking at including the parade in the city council’s budget from next year. That way money would be allocated to the parade each year and the trust would not have to apply for funding from the Events and Festivals Fund. “The Santa Parade is in a competitive fund whereby it competes with other events looking for funding assistance,” Ms Dalziel said. “We are not abandoning the Santa Parade and we will

In Brief NURSES AWARDED A team of mental health nurses have been given a police award for their work with prisoners at the Christchurch Central Police Station watch house. The team of six work 24-hours to monitor and help people dealing with mental health, alcohol or drug issues while they are being held in the cells, and have been credited with saving lives through the work. They were awarded the District Commander’s Commendations award by Canterbury Superintendent John Price. IMPROVING NEW BRIGHTON A fund has been set up as part of New Brighton’s regeneration plan. Development Christchurch Ltd set up the Creating Momentum Regeneration Fund, which would see $100,000 made available to fund projects, initiatives, events and business ventures that contribute to the regeneration of the seaside suburb. It comes as Development Christchurch is going through feedback it received on developing a hot salt water pool facility. KINDY BATTLE LOST McCormacks Bay residents are unlikely to appeal a decision to rebuild a kindergarten in front of their homes because it would cost $50,000. Residents tried to stop Kidsfirst setting up a 248 sq m kindergarten next to Mt Pleasant Community Centre. They said the new kindergarten, which would be built in a different spot than the previous earthquake-damaged one, would block their views of the estuary. Resident Diane Keats said an appeal to Environment Canterbury against the decision couldn’t proceed because of the cost. GROYNES MASTER PLAN A master plan will be made for The Groynes and nearby Roto Kohatu Reserve to decide how they will be used in the future. The city council is asking for ideas on what people would like to see in those reserves. Consultation will close on December 12.

•From page 1 Her mother Amanda said Eliza had been really unwell for a couple of days and when she got her teddy was the best she had seen her. “It’s really wonderful because the kids are so scared and something like this, it brings it back down to ground level.” Eliza has appendicitis, and is waiting to see if she

will need to have surgery to remove her appendix. She said the nurses and doctors were very kind. Surgeons can also use the teddies as a prop when explaining procedures to the children before they undergo their operation.

who came in for care. phil&teds chief executive Campbell Gower said it was great to be able to help the children, as well as supporting the Surgical Research Trust. Trust chairman Grant Kiddle said not only did the teddies cheer the children up, but that also had a flow-on effect for families and staff facing surgery.

Burglaries on the increase •From page 1 The new figures also showed the worst day for burglaries in Christchurch was Monday. They were more common during the day than night, with early afternoon between 2-3pm

the most common time. Superintendent Price said about half of burglaries happened at properties where doors or windows were left open, so he asked people to make sure their homes were secure.

“We need to make sure everyone is playing their part, because we can’t be on every corner and outside every house, so we would rather be preventing burglaries than have to respond to them,” he said.

Streaker manages to sidestep conviction A DUNEDIN man who dodged security while streaking at an All Black game in Christchurch is also set to sidestep a conviction for the nude run. Warren Blair Fitzgerald appeared in court

yesterday having admitted a charge of disorderly behaviour last month. The 30 year-old was originally charged with going onto the playing surface at a major sporting event, but the All Blacks clash against

the Springboks at AMI stadium in Christchurch on September 17 did not meet the criteria of a major event, the court heard. Yesterday he was granted a conditional discharge without conviction by Judge Michael Turner.

Dalziel steps into BP row „„ By Gabrielle Stuart MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel has stepped in to advocate for Edgeware residents who have been battling against a BP expansion. They spent more than six months trying to fight the expansion of the service station, but the plan was approved after a commissioner said the effect on neighbours would be “less than minor.” But now the expansion has been built, neighbours say that has been proven wrong. Where there used to be a row of established trees, neighbour Kazu Kano’s view from his home is now of a 20m long, almost 5m high white wall just behind the boundary fence. They told The Star last week the city council had abandoned them in their battle after they were told nothing more could be done. The expansion breached resource consent rules because the land was zoned residential, but the city council supported it anyway. Ms Dalziel personally approached BP this week, asking

HOPE: BP neighbour Kazu Kano (below) is happy the mayor has stepped in to advocate for residents battling the oil company. WALLED IN: Established trees which used to line the fence were ripped out to make way for the new BP building, as part of the expansion.

for a representative to get in touch with her to discuss the situation, particularly around the landscaping. The residents met with BP representatives two weeks ago and asked them to do extra planting along the back wall of the building and to paint it a different colour to reduce the glare. But that request was refused. A BP spokeswoman said BP staff had spoken with Ms Dalziel.

“We intend on having further discussions with her around the landscaping plans that were outlined in the resource consent,” she said. Mr Kano said the fact Ms Dalziel had stepped in was good news for the residents. “It is very good news for us. I much appreciate support from neighbours and Mayor Lianne Dalziel’s involvement,” he said. The Star emailed photos of

the new BP to Mr Mountfort and asked if he still believed the effects on neighbours were “quite benign.” He said he would not comment on decisions he had issued.

Lotto profits go to quake relief fund KAIKOURA AND Hurunui will receive all the profits from next Saturday’s Lotto draw, just as Christchurch did in the aftermath of the February 2011 earthquake. All profits from the Lotto, Powerball and Strike draw on December 10 will be donated to the Kaikoura/Hurunui earthquake relief fund. The Christchurch earthquake relief received $8 million when the last special purpose lottery was held in March 2011. “Our Lotto staff and retailers around the country really want to do something for the people of Kaikoura and we are really pleased to be able to help,” chief executive Wayne Pickup said. “Kiwis love playing Lotto to help support our communities, and the Kaikoura community is in need of help right now.” He said under the strict laws that governed the game it was not possible to donate the Powerball jackpot to the relief effort. The charity donation is permissible under the Gambling Act 2003, the Ministry of Internal Affairs said.

Time to get ready for Chch’s iconic fun run

THOUSANDS OF Cantabrians from all walks of life are starting their preparations for The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero on Sunday, March 19. Entries are now open for the 43rd running of the event. In the past, the 14km event (starting at Centennial Park) has been seen as for runners only, but with the introduction of the very popular Sport Canterbury 6km event (starting at Hansen Park), this fun run is really about movement, whether it be running, jogging or walking. Both events finish at Ferrymead playing fields which will be full of family entertainment and prizes. The fun run is also free to participants under 10 years old. Next year’s The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero is proudly supporting Aviva family services. Looking to inspire others to put

The family began its journey to a healthy lifestyle through a Facebook page Hungry4Hauora. It highlights the family’s journey of ups and downs on the way to a healthy lifestyle. Normally very camera shy, Rudolph and wife Telena want to inspire others, especially the Maori and Pacific community. After just two months of regular exercise and nutritious eating, Mr Diaz says he has already noticed a difference in his energy levels and skin health.

Working as a health and well-being adviser at He Waka Tapu, Mr Diaz is urging others who are looking to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle, to use The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero as a vehicle for change. He Waka Tapu had 600 participants in the 2016 event and is aiming to reach 1000 participants in 2017. The family has already set about getting active, regularly attending training circuits with the Hale Compound Conditioning organisation. “A big part of the fitness group we are in is to set goals throughout the year. City2Surf is the main goal for a lot of people in our group,” Mr Diaz said. Getting fit for the 6km or 14km event will be just the start for the family who are looking to get to their goal weights by next October. Mr Diaz is hoping to get from 140kg, which he weighed two months ago, down to 95kg.

Immigrant’s emotional tale of Adem Ferkatovich fled war-torn Yugoslavia and moved to New Zealand for a better life more than 60 years ago. Bridget Rutherford reports SIXTY YEARS ago today, Adem Ferkatovich married the girl he spotted across the room at a Christchurch dance hall. But if Mr Ferkatovich had not been able to overcome his shyness, it may never have happened. Because it was a nervous young Adem who simply couldn’t ask Elizabeth, 16, to dance when he saw her at Kilmore St’s Caledonian Dance Hall. But as she and her friend put on their coats to leave, he plucked up the courage to say: “Can I help you ladies?” “And he’s been helping me ever since,” Elizabeth said. It was a milestone Mr Ferkatovich, now 86, didn’t think he’d reach. He has just written a book that explains why. More than five years earlier, he escaped the Croatian Communist Army and fled to Greece. His father, Ibrahim, was killed in World War 2. His brother, Salko, was murdered by the

resistance army. And his mother, Majrem, died shortly after from a “broken heart.” He never saw his older sisters, Aica and Zuleyha, again after he was forced to join the army in 1951. He doesn’t know if they are still alive. Mr Ferkatovich was born in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Yugoslavia, in a little village called Kazits. His parents wanted him to become a Muslim priest, but when he was 10, World War 2 broke out. The Germans did not invade Yugoslavia until 1941, however, there were two resistance movements – the Communist Partisan Army and the Chetniks. “They were all just like butchers, they would kill each other,” he said. School was closed and it was too dangerous to stay in their home during the night, so they had to sleep in the bushes. Mr Ferkatovich’s older brother Salko carried a gun and protected the family.

ANNIVERSARY: Sixty years ago today, Adem and Elizabeth Ferkatovich got married at St John’s in Latimer Square.

But one night the 17-year-old was captured. Three days later a parcel arrived at their home. “No one should have to see what was in that parcel,” Mr Ferkatovich said. It was Salko’s head. He still had his red scarf tied around his neck. It broke his mother.

love, loss and war put in print Mr Ferkatovich’s uncle looked after him and his sisters after the rest of the family died. In 1949, Mr Ferkatovich joined the army at 17, where he was to remain for three years. But 13 months later he fled. He wanted to escape communism and felt he was a puppet of Communist Partisan Army leader Josip Broz Tito. His army unit was based at Bitola, Macedonia, 15km from the Greek border. He was second in charge and did guard duties and went out on training exercises. That gave him the chance to plot his escape. “It took me months to find out if I could get out.” At 8.30pm the last guard changed. He had only 30min to get away before roll call. He ran towards Greece, initially along the road, then across the more discrete plough fields. When daylight came, he lay on the ground with his machine gun on his chest and covered himself with soil. Army officers came looking for him and, at one stage, were about 4m from where he lay. He would rather have shot himself than be caught. “I didn’t know how much a

village where he stayed in a cell for 22 days. Then he was driven to Salonik and a refugee camp for immigrants. For 33 days, he was questioned to make sure he was not a spy. From there, he was taken to a refugee camp in Lavrio, near Athens, for 14 months. He feared he’d be sent back to Yugoslavia, until he was handed some brochures advertising Brazil, Canada, America, Australia and New Zealand. Because he was a soldier, he was allowed to choose where he could immigrate. New Zealand was the farthest away from his troubles.

He boarded the Goya in Naples, Italy, with 900 others. They sailed for 45 days before arriving in Wellington. “I said to myself, just paradise.” He was sent to help build Roxburgh hydro scheme for 16 months and eventually got a job at Christchurch’s Firestone Rubber Company where he made tyres. They were supposed to build 36 tyres a day – but he built 120 in seven hours and 15 minutes – a record he says still stands today. “I tried my best to put it [the war] behind me to start my new life and start a family.” •Turn to page 10

Refugee’s harrowing story •From page 9 He and Elizabeth married in St John’s in Latimer Square on December 1, 1956, and they later put a deposit on a poultry farm on Woolridge Rd. After selling the farm, they bought a coffee lounge on High St in 1958. They transformed it into a popular restaurant and nightclub known as The Copper Cat. However, when the 10pm closing policy was introduced nine years later, they thought it would impact business so sold it. Hotel Russley was Mr Ferkatovich’s next job, where he worked as a bartender for 25 years. A year after retiring, Lion Breweries decided to sell the hotel and the Ferkatovichs bought it. Nowadays Mr Ferkatovich likes spending time in their award-winning garden and playing golf at Russley. He has written a book, Adem’s Escape, so his three children and five grandchildren know where he came from. They ordered 100 copies and were selling them at Russley Golf Club, but the majority have sold out. Mr Ferkatovich doesn’t want

to go back to his homeland. New Zealand is his home now. “There’s nothing there for me now.” If anyone asks, Adem jokes he was “born in Whakatane and educated in Rotorua,” although his accent gives it away. He’s a Canterbury and Crusaders fan – he used to serve former All Black and Canterbury coach Alex Wyllie at Hotel Russley. He returned to Europe for

the first time in 2006, but the closest they got to his home was Dubrovnik, Croatia. He doesn’t even like seeing it on the news. “It always will be war.” The Ferkatovichs will go to Chateau on the Park today to celebrate the couple’s anniversary. “Where I come from family is everything.” •Adem’s Escape is being sold at Valentino’s Hair Design, Bishopdale.

Health board may get fluoride hospital pass „„ By Gabrielle Stuart CANTERBURY District Health Board members may have the power to put fluoride in the city’s water within a year – but they are worried about the debate it is likely to spark. Government has taken the first step to put the fluoridation decision in the hands of district health Jo Kane boards, rather than councils, in a new bill put to Parliament this month. Health board member Jo Kane said she was open Murray to adding fluoride Cleverley to Christchurch’s water, but said it was the wrong time and wrong way to have the debate. She said CDHB was already facing the rebuild of its facilities, dealing with the latest earthquake response, trying to improve community health systems and dealing with budget shortages. “When you’re going out to the

N EW ST OR E

community and trying to bring in important health changes, this kind of sideshow takes over and it could just derail it completely,” she said. If science backed up that putting extra fluoride in the water was the best way to supplement people’s diet, it should be done nationally not by region, she said. “The Government hasn’t had the guts to make this decision themselves,” she said. She was also concerned about the costs a decision to add fluoride would put on councils. Health board chairman Murray Cleverley said giving the power to health boards was still far from a done deal. The new bill will need to go through the normal Parliamentary process and through public consultation before it can be approved.

Crutches no barrier to top fitness award

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart WHEN CATE Grace went up on stage to collect her NZ Register of Exercise Professionals Industry Award, one of the top honours a personal trainer can be given, it was on crutches. While she works to help others overcome their physical battles, she is fighting one of her own. She was diagnosed with arthritis in her 20s, given a Zimmer frame, and told she would probably be in a wheelchair by the time she was 40. Now 42, although she still battles with pain, she runs her own growing personal training business, has helped hundreds of clients, and is still active herself. But she said her life was far from a perfect success story. For a long time after the diagnosis she said she let it overwhelm her, and stayed at home getting more and more overweight and unfit. “Everyone was saying to me you need to exercise, Cate. So I made a conscious effort and went around heaps of gyms trying to sign up, but they looked at me and turned me away,” she said. That was what drove her to start her own personal training business eight years ago – helping people struggling with

“Tutuman on Tour”. She recently rebranded the business as Grace Training, formerly Leap Fitness and Motivation, and is in the process of developing a new Whānau Ora programme. In presenting the award, the NZ Register of Exercise Professionals said her work was “part business, part humanitarian”, and created a safe and inclusive space which was accepting of people as they come. The award is not given out every year, and only awarded to people the board decides contribute something exceptional to the industry. She said winning it was completely unexpected. “When someone called my name I actually wasn’t even listening, and I had to be elbowed,” she said. She said getting up on stage to accept it in front of hundreds ebratin Cel ear g s 25 y

ebratin Cel ear g s 25 y

of other trainers and people in the industry was both scary and very emotional. “I’m very thankful for waterproof mascara,” she said. She said one of the hardest parts for herself and for many of her clients was when their condition meant they had to give up hobbies. For herself it was playing sport, including netball, softball and touch rugby. It could feel like losing your identity, she said. “I will never play competitive netball again. I probably wouldn’t have now anyway, because I’m in my 40s, but sometimes you still sit there and you miss it,” she said. But in spite of the challenges, she said she had reached the point where she looked at her health conditions as a positive thing. “Without the arthritis I wouldn’t have had opportunity, so I can actually say this is the best thing that has happened to me, because it has led to all this. You have to keep your head above water and think there’s an opportunity here, look for the opportunity not at the pain. So I don’t want the challenges to stop.” ebratin Cel ear g s 5 2 y

Stressed hospital staff fed up „„ By Gabrielle Stuart THERE ARE warnings patients at Christchurch hospitals could be at risk, as a growing number of hospital staff say they face an excessive workload and do not feel valued. The Star has obtained the results of the Canterbury District Health Board’s latest staff well-being survey, which showed more than 90 per cent of staff felt stressed because of pressures at work. Those pressures included excessive workloads, poor physical work conditions, poor communication, increased administration or compliance duties and not feeling valued. NZ Nurses Organisation industrial adviser Lesley Harry said staff had gone the extra mile to keep providing the same care to patients since the earthquakes, but that was taking a toll. “They do that by not taking their breaks, by not taking leave when they should, by coming into work when they’re unwell,” she said. “People are starting to crack, and working under pressure, particularly now with the latest earthquake, will become

PRESSURE: More than 90 per cent of Christchurch Hospital staff surveyed said they felt stressed because of pressures at work.

unbearable for some.” She was worried about the impact it would have on patient care and the higher risk of accidents. “The effects of this stress on patients is really well documented. There is absolutely a link. If you’ve got a stressed workforce it does lead to poorer patient outcomes,” she said. It comes at a time when junior doctors have been striking over their work hours, as some work up to 12 days in a row under the current contracts. A nationwide strike had been

planned last week, but that was cancelled because of the earthquake response. CDHB chief executive David Meates said staff were facing “unprecedented pressures” at work, at home, and in the health system. “The impact of 14,000 damaged hospital rooms and 44 demolished buildings should not be underestimated,” he said. He said the CDHB was working with the unions to develop a well-being strategy for staff, focused on building leadership, developing a

supportive culture and improving people management. Since 2011, he said the investment in counselling support programmes for staff had been raised 40 per cent, advice on things ranging from financial issues to sleep had been available and there had been a lot of demand for staff “well-being workshops.” Although 89 per cent said they felt they made a contribution to the success of the CDHB, only 44 per cent felt valued as a CDHB employee. But things they said they valued at work included support from managers and colleagues, communication from management, training opportunities and flexibility around their work. But Ms Harry said it was good to see more staff participating in the survey, as it showed they were engaged. This year, 4042 staff took part, compared with 2308 in 2014. “We appreciate, actually, that the CDHB do survey their staff well-being. I think it takes a certain amount of courage, particularly when the results are likely to be negative, so good on them,” she said.

Lavish golf resort plans on hold „„ By Bridget Rutherford THE DEVELOPMENT of a new $160 million golf resort in Spencerville appears to have stalled. South Korean businessman Thomas Na was to develop Whisper Creek Golf Resort on 157ha of land next to the Styx River. Earthworks were due to begin on the site early last year, with the golf course opened by the end of 2015 – however, the development is on hold. Real estate agent Chris Jones, who was originally selling the sections, told The Star he did not know if the project would go ahead. “They haven’t committed to it either way.” He said they had been taking down names and numbers for people interested in buying residential sections at the resort. The development was to include an 18-hole golf course designed by English golfing great Nick Faldo, a golfing academy, an indoor sports complex, 141 sections and 113 resort apartments. Mr Na bought the land more than 10 years ago and spent $17 million trying to get the development going. He had said it would provide more than 100 jobs. Sections went on sale in August, 2013, costing about $700,000.

Gallery ‘forgotten’ – grandson „„ By Bridget Rutherford THE CITY council would rather build onto the Christchurch Art Gallery, than use the repaired Robert McDougall Art Gallery as an exhibition space. Robert McDougall’s grandson Tim Seay wants the historic gallery in the Botanic Gardens named after his grandfather to house some of the city’s art collection, currently displayed at Christchurch Art Gallery. However, Christchurch Art Gallery director Jenny Harper said it would prefer to build onto the gallery, than have its collection on two sites. The Robert McDougall Art Gallery was the city’s main art exhibition space until Christchurch Art Gallery opened in 2003. Strengthening to bring it up to standard has begun, and the city council is negotiating a lease with Canterbury Museum to use the building once it reopens.

HISTORIC: Robert McDougall’s grandson, Tim Seay, says the Robert McDougall Art Gallery should be used to showcase the city’s art collection, alongside Christchurch Art Gallery. ​ Mr Seay said Christchurch Art Gallery was running out of space to house the whole collection, and it would be cheaper to utilise a space that was already built. Ms Harper said the gallery would need to think about more storage at “some point in the fu-

ture”, which would be proposed in the next planning round. One possibility was to build on the former Gallery Apartments site, that the city council owned. It could be used by the gallery’s administration, other activities with storage and exhibition space, she said.

“This is preferable and would be more cost-effective than running a two-site gallery.’’ It could involve a publicprivate partnership, she said. Mr Seay said his grandfather donated the money for the Robert McDougall Art Gallery’s construction in 1928 so it would be used as an art gallery, not for museum items. When Christchurch Art Gallery was opened the gallery was deemed surplus to requirements, and the city council changed its act so it could be used for museum activities, he said. “The council can legally lease the building to the museum, but they can only do that if they break the 1928 agreement with my grandfather. That agreement should be honoured by the council of 2016.” He wanted the city council to honour his grandfather’s gift. “It’s the forgotten building of Christchurch, completely forgotten.”

Bid to beat new freedom camping rules FREEDOM CAMPERS have been forging stickers that show whether a vehicle is properly certified as being self-contained. City council head of regulatory compliance Tracey Weston said staff would be out in force patrolling this summer, paying particular attention to the stickers that show whether a vehicle is properly certified as being self-contained by the New Zealand Motor Caravan Association. “We’ve seen instances where people have tried to forge these stickers in an attempt to flout the rules, but staff are aware of this and know what to look out for,” she said. The new rules, which come into effect today, ban all freedom camping vehicles without toilets in them. The changes also see freedom camping at five hot spots, Addington Park, Lower Styx River car park, Windsport Park, Wainui and French Farm completely banned. Certified vehicles with on-board wastewater facilities that have been approved by the association will be allowed to camp without a time restriction in rural zones.

*Direct material costs apply

Construction courses at SIT A call for more experienced builders throughout the Canterbury region is being answered in the form of two construction courses at the Southern Institute of Technology (SIT). The Level 2 National Certificate in Building, Construction and Applied Trade Skills, and the Level 3 Certificate in Construction were formed to equip students with the necessary skills to start a successful career in the construction industry. The 10-week Level two certificate focuses on giving students practical

skills for construction for a headstart in the industry, while the 40week full time National Certificate covers carpentry theory, elementary construction skills, health and safety, drawing and practical construction skills. The majority of each certificate is practical, so students who enjoy working with their hands will have the opportunity to design and build from scratch, with the Level 3 certificate offering the opportunity to participate in house building in Christchurch

News Electric car charging stations planned for city

„„ By Bridget Rutherford SEVEN MORE electric car charging stations will be installed across the city after Little River received the first last week. City council resource efficiency manager Kevin Crutchley said five more stations would be installed in conjunction with Orion, while the city council would fund two extra on its own. He said the standard electric vehicle chargers have two sockets to charge two vehicles, so there would be 30 standard charging sockets and one fast charger across the city once they were all installed. Little River received a fast charger and a standard charger last week, he said, while Akaroa is going to get two standard chargers. Sumner, New Brighton, Parklands and the Botanic Gardens car park would also get a standard charger each, he said. These would all be installed before February. The city council is also planning on installing five standard chargers at the new Lichfield St car park being built, and QE II Recreation and Sport Centre, which it would fund itself, he said.

Rescue effort to relocate eels „„ By Tom Doudney SOCIAL MEDIA has been used to mobilise a rescue effort to relocate eels trapped in dried up stretches of the Selwyn/ Waikirikiri River. Volunteers, Department of Conservation and Environment Canterbury staff and Fish and Game officers spent several days last week finding and relocating eels trapped in a stretch of the river which extended both upstream and downstream from the State Highway 1 bridge. A post by Will Clayton in the Rolleston Community Page on Facebook was widely shared and more than 60 people commented with a number of people offering advice or reporting that they were heading down to help. However, reports suggested many eels and other species such as trout had already died by the time they were found. One person had found “78 dead eels, lots of dead small trout, and four very big live eels.” Te Ara Kakariki Greenway

SAD SIGHT: Photos of eels trapped in the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River, and others which were relocated, were shared to the Rolleston Community Page on Facebook.

Trust chairman Craig Pauling (left), also a former member of Ngāi Tahu’s Te Waihora Management Board, said the situation was pretty sad. He believed that the endangered longfin eels would be most affected as they tended to live upstream and would be trying to come down to Te Waihora/ Lake Ellesmere to migrate. “It’s about the right time of year for them to come down,” Mr Pauling said. “They could be very old, perhaps at least 70 and they

only go down to the lake once to migrate.” Mr Pauling, who camped on the Waikirikiri/Selwyn River as a child, said the flow of the river was not what it once was. Environment Canterbury team leader hydrological science Helen Shaw said the river was dry because of an extended period of drought which had resulted in very low groundwater levels. Drying reaches were likely to have a major impact on eel (called ‘tuna’ in Maori), particu-

larly the longfin species which penetrated many kilometres inland. “If tuna cannot return to sea, they cannot breed,” she said. “Unseasonably low flows will have an impact on fish populations and increase the likelihood of getting caught in a drying reach.” Department of Conservation biodiversity ranger Anita Spencer said the situation was concerning because longfin eels only bred at the end of their life and there had been few opportunities for them to make it from the top of the river down to the ocean, via the lake, over the last two years due to dry conditions. She believed the latest migration attempt might have happened when a period of rainfall briefly filled some dried out parts of the river before the water quickly receded again. “That was the problem, it rained quite a lot but not enough to keep it flowing,” she said. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Send your views on the drying up of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River to tom.doudney@starmedia.kiwi

Our People

Seaside environment keeps Scott Robertson is gearing up for his first season coaching his old team, the Crusaders. Bridget Rutherford spoke to him about his goals for the season, where he learned to breakdance and whether he is a true Cantabrian yet So what have you been doing in the lead up to pre-season training? I recovered after the week of the Mitre 10 Cup final physically, mentally and I detoxed as well (laughs), it was a good celebration. But it was a great way to finish a number of years of Canterbury rugby. Then in the second week I went over to the Roosters in the NRL to do a bit of professional development and leadership, and work around defence so I could up-skill myself coming into the season. New Zealand Rugby Union has a great relationship with clubs around Australasia, and Sydney had some good surf. It was a great way to transition from Mitre 10 Cup to Super Rugby and start our planning phase. What do you think will be the toughest part of your new role at the Crusaders next season? Probably knowing myself, I’ll bring a lot of energy and creative new ideas. So I’ve got to make sure I get the balance right and bring what I need, and keep it to the critical few things that will make the difference. The Crusaders have a proud and successful history, does that add any pressure? Expectations are great, I love it. I had it with Canterbury that we’d go and be successful, and with that comes high standards and brings a bit of pressure you can use to create an edge. If there were no expectations I just wouldn’t feel the same. What are your goals for the season? My philosophy is to make people better on and off the field. I just want the team to perform and make sure when we’re under pressure in these

critical moments we win those. It’s something we haven’t nailed, and we’ve had opportunities but haven’t taken them. That excites me. And you played for the Crusaders and Canterbury back in the day, did you ever see yourself coaching them? Yes. Back in 1996 and 97 I would walk in with a playbook and try and create new plays and see new ways of doing things. It’s the way it is now, it’s just a natural progression. It’s been a pathway; it’s taken a considerable amount of time to get here from retiring nine years ago. I’ve done a lot of hours. Is this a stepping stone to coach the All Blacks? The All Blacks is a totally different level and experience is critical. A lot of the coaches have been overseas and had a lot of different experiences with different cultures and competitions. With the All Blacks you play international teams and you need to understand that environment. Coaching overseas gives you a chance to experience that. I’m in no rush, I’d love to do that but I could see myself coaching afar first. Being a former Crusader, does it make you a bit more patriotic while coaching? Of course – I shed a lot of blood, cartilage and meniscus with the Crusaders. It was successful, I loved it and it made me a better person. Some of my best mates and memories were with that team, it sounds pretty cliche, but it’s a dream. And you come from up north don’t you? I’m from the Mount (Maunganui). It’s a bottle top question – who was the first

person to be drafted for a Super Team. I made New Zealand Colts, and Vance Stewart picked me out and I was drafted and came to Canterbury. So are you a Cantabrian now? People ask me that all the time. I had a great up-bringing and my home is the Mount in regards to childhood friends and things. But I made my adult connections down here. My wife’s from down here and I had my children here. But I’m really fortunate to have red and black in my veins. And you spent a fair bit of time coaching NZ under-20s. Is part of that role to groom upand-coming players?

The object is to develop players, on and off the field, because they’re young men and they’ve got to make some big decisions. The other was win. If you’re in the black jersey going to a tournament, you’re playing for silverware. I managed to do it one of the two times. For me, my biggest learning was our loss to Ireland – which some other teams have had too recently – but it’s a different style and the preparation is different for different teams, weather, and the mindset. I’m a better coach because I understand that. Over the years, who is a young player that you’ve

watched and thought they had a big future? The most gifted player I’ve ever seen is Jordie Barrett. He’s going to the Hurricanes which is the second toughest thing for me outside the Ireland loss. He’s an extreme talent, and a great kid with great work ethic. Better than his brother Beauden? I don’t like to compare them. They’ve got similar skill-sets. For us it’s a wait and see. I think what sets Jordie apart is his mind-set – he’s the ultimate professional and has an incredible knack of performing under pressure. That sets the greats apart.

Viewpoint

Govt assures support WHEN FACED with extraordinary circumstances, Parliament must ensure the law is adaptable and best able to respond. This was the case after the Canterbury earthquakes and it is the case again now, following the November 14 earthquake which has affected the upper South Island and Wellington. This week I introduced three new Bills into the House, the first of which passed through all stages under urgency on Tuesday. The Civil Defence Emergency Management Amendment Act 2016 was passed just four days before the November 14 earthquake but was not due to come into force until next year. The CDEMAA Amendment Bill has brought forward most of the Act’s provisions and will enable a smoother and more effective transition from the response phase to recovery after an emergency. It provides powers to those carrying out recovery work that would previously only be available under a state of emergency, such as the ability to limit access to public spaces

and remove or secure dangerous structures. It also provides that a Civil Defence controller or a recovery manager may require a building owner to undertake earthquake assessments of their properties. While I have yet to hear of a building owner refusing to undertake assessments, there is no room for complacency. If required, authorities now have the ability to ensure buildings are assessed if there is reason to believe a building could pose a public risk. Recovering from the magnitude 7.8 earthquake will

take some time but getting affected communities back on their feet is our priority. This new legislation will empower local authorities to get on with the job while still respecting rightful process. A cross-party group of all Parliamentary representation worked together on the Bills to strike this balance so affected communities can be assured of support across all elected representatives. The lessons learnt from the Canterbury earthquakes have been included in the new legislation and the wider Government response. As a Government, we’re committed to enabling local authorities and communities to be able to turn their minds to rebuilding. Gerry Brownlee is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Cheryl Robbins – Something that makes thousands of people happy loses funds, yet you pay for

something that makes a few people happy. And you wonder why people are sick of your antics. Louis Robinson – Yes, this is tragic given the recent earthquakes it would have been nice for the families to have something like this too look forward too.

THE DOOMED state housing sell-off touched down in Christchurch at the end of last week. We’ve now learned that the Government plans to sell off 2500 state houses around our city in Bryndwr, Shirley and Riccarton. As the local Wigram MP, I’ve spent some time in the Riccarton development. These new built units are a great example of intensive housing and offer a wonderful warm dry home for many families. This sale of state houses only serves as a distraction from the housing crisis and homelessness we’re seeing nationwide. It’s good old fashioned National Party privatisation and it’s doing nothing to address the real issue. Distractions aside, there are real questions about whether the Government even has the ability to sell the properties. We’ve seen instances in Horowhenua and Invercargill where the sale has fallen over altogether, and the Government backed down when complications were identified. Social agencies like the Salvation Army and the Methodist Mission that they were counting on have ruled out being part of the process entirely. Instead,

National has courted overseas investors and companies to buy our state houses. I fail to see how protections that ensure these houses are kept in social housing will ever be put in place. Bill English has told us that the sell-off is about more diverse ownership. We’ve already got this in Christchurch with the Ōtautahi Community Housing Trust, a significant non-government provider. Most New Zealanders believe that state houses are there to provide a roof over the head of those that require that help the most, and it’s a core role of Gov-

ernment to provide that service. The profits from Housing New Zealand alone could have built over 1500 state houses for families in need. Labour doesn’t believe that Housing New Zealand should be a state-owned enterprise used as a cash cow by the Government. We’ve made the commitment to make it a public service with one job – to house people in need. The Government wants to take the state out of state housing. Labour will stand with those who need our help the most. Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

‘Razor’ happy

Did you try and get him to stay down here? I spent a lot of time, but his family was first for him. And he’ll get to play outside his brother, his best mate. It was a really hard and emotional decision for him and it meant a lot to him to play for us. When you were a rookie, who was a senior player that you looked up to? I made a lot of really good mates and everyone brought a lot of different things. That group of players that we had is unlike any group that’s been together for a long time. If you look at the coaches, we had Robbie Deans, Steve Hansen, Wayne Smith and they also had success postCrusaders. I heard a great quote – truly inspiring coaches, or the great coaches, coach a player to become great coaches, and their players become coaches. It’s a generational thing. And from that group we had myself, Leon MacDonald, Tabai Matson, Todd Blackadder, Dave Hewett, Mark Hammett, Daryl Gibson and Aaron Mauger. I think the whole environment helped shape us. It didn’t just teach us how to play, but it taught us the game, and that’s what we’re doing now. It was that era where the Crusaders were on the Meadow Fresh milk cartons – did you make it onto one of those? No, I’ve broken my nose too many times (laughs). You went and played in France and Japan following your time with the AB’s, what did you learn from your stints there? The first year in France I struggled. I missed the structure of the Crusaders and I kept asking why do the French do it this way? But once I figured that out I ended up really loving and enjoying it. I learned French and the French way. I learned a lot of what I do now as a coach. It was the same in Japan, I learned a lot of their traditions. It made me appreciate what we’ve got here in New Zealand, and New Zealand rugby now. There’s a lot of benefits of

going away and coming back. Maybe I’ll coach over there one day. How’s your Japanese? My wife’s pretty handy at it, but I can do the basics. And the most important question, where did you learn to breakdance? My mum’s got a bit of rhythm. I never expected to be dancing, it came from my playing days when the hoo hay razor ray song was pulled out. I was put on the spot and got called out and had to front up. If we win I’m more than happy to dance. Where does the nickname Razor come from? It’s a bit of self-promotion, probably a bit like the dancing. We used to give ourselves a couple of nicknames. We’d say I used to cut people in half and my shoulders were razor blades.

I created a bit of an alias as Razor Ray and it’s taken its own little storylines. So I named myself (laughs). And you settled in Sumner when you came down, why did you choose to live there by the beach? I’m a surfer, I love the sea and I enjoy the drive to Sumner. It’s a safe environment and it makes me happy. I’m involved with the great community and it reminds me of the Mount. The kids enjoy it too. Speaking of family, how did you meet your wife? I met my wife, Jane, at Lincoln. I’ve said this before, but my wife got a double degree – hers and mine. I met her when I first arrived in town and she’s been through all the highs and lows with me.

to the field. We’ve been through a lot. What does she do? She works at the local school and does extra-curricular sport for the kids and runs sporting competitions and that sort of thing. She’s the sports coordinator. Is she a bit of a rugby widow? I was away over 100 days this year with the NZ under-20s. But we understand it and she makes it work. We’ve got family support at Sumner. I’m lucky to have my role but we make sure we get away as a family. Sumner was hit quite hard in the earthquakes, did you have any issues with insurance or damage to your home? Yeah, we had a red zone section up on the hill. We had five years in court with the Government, but we got a great result. We can look back and the right thing was done and we’ve moved on with that. We’ve learned patience and a lot about the law. What was the most rewarding moment of your rugby career so far? My first test for the All Blacks. We played Australia in Christchurch and my family came down. I fulfilled a huge goal for myself. Did you win that test? Don’t ask! (In 1998 Australia beat the All Blacks 27-23). We had better move on then, what was your most embarrass-

ing moment? When I played for Canterbury I was a reserve and came on, and I unzipped my tracksuit and ran on the field and I wasn’t wearing my playing jersey, I still had my warm-up T-shirt on. I was in the huddle before I realised – everyone was pointing at me as I ran on and I kept running. I had to run back and swap it at the next break. Some coaches lose their fitness after they finish playing, that doesn’t seem the case for you? I do a bit of stand-up paddle boarding. It’s great for me and for my strength in my core and legs. I get to the gym and I swim a lot. I have to do it most days otherwise I get a bit edgy. What do you like to do in your spare time? I spent a lot of time with the kids, and going to their sport and enjoying what they’re doing as a family so I connect with them. In the afternoon or the evenings we are either playing tennis, passing a ball, or playing touch. I’ve got three boys, aged 12, 10 and eight. They play rugby, touch, tennis and they surf. They’ve got a really good balance. You’re well-qualified to give them some tips. I just try to be a dad not a coach. I do coach one of their teams, and I give them tips and help out, but away from everyone’s eyes so there’s no pressure on them.

C GRADE WHITEWARE

INSTORE NOW!

HURRY! STOCKS ARE LIMITED!

’Tis the season FOR SOME, the Christmas season is their most favourite time of year, filled with plenty of fun, frivolity and happy times. However, for others it can be a challenging and exhausting experience. For me, it’s a good mix of both. While I absolutely love the festive season and am grateful to be part of such an inclusive community, it can also be a tricky, juggling act for our young family. After a challenging and busy school year, it’s easy for end-of-term-itis to set in and for the kids to be tired, grumpy and hard to work with. And yet there’s still so much ahead of us before Father Christmas finally struts his stuff. Our usually empty calendar is now peppered with school events, dance recitals, Christmas concerts, carols, drinks, work functions, and dates with friends before the summer holidays.

Basically, lots of busy days and late nights ahead. But with the twins having only just turned three, they still need a regular bedtime, otherwise, they simply won’t cope. And my five and seven-year-old Big Girls also need plenty of downtime and sleep, otherwise, they will get scratchy and impatient. So it’s important that I try and find a good balance. Yet it’s hard. Although I am trying to maintain our 7pm bedtime curfew, it’s near impossible to settle my girls when the sun is still shining and inviting them out to play. They wolf down their dinner so to get back outside to run around and enjoy their games. I love this after-dinner play too, and often get out for a quick game of bat-down too, so it’s no wonder they protest when I call it quits just because the clock says so. But over the years, I have come to know my girls’ limits. I know how much they can, or rather can-

not, cope with. And there’s nothing worse than having the wheels fall off when we are gearing up to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year. That’s no good for anyone. Me included. So in the lead up to the 25th, I am going to try and front-foot any sign of exhaustion by scheduling rest into their day, and wherever I can, push for an early dinner and bedtime. Although I know you can’t bank sleep, I’m definitely going to try! However, all said we are very much looking forward to the pending month of Christmas celebrations and excited about catching up with Santa, cutting down the Christmas tree, singing carols and having festive fun. And with four girls between the ages of three and seven, I have a feeling that this Christmas will be simply magical. After all, as Thomas Oliphant once famously wrote: “’Tis the season to be jolly . . .”, so let the festivities begin!

Gardening Guide Insects in the Garden Knowing your enemy is the key to beating any insect pests, but equally important for edible plants is crop rotation. This is important for the uptake of nutrients in the soil, but more importantly rotating is also important as pests can build up an immunity to some types of insecticides.

NATURE’S BOUNTY: Fruit trees should be in full growth mode.

Gardens should now be looking their best YOUR GARDEN should be looking lovely, with flowers and foliage adding colour, scent and depth to your garden, not to mention the start of some summer crops such as strawberries, beans and lettuce. For a healthy garden, and in particular vegetable, always try to have good garden practices. This includes garden hygiene such as cleaning up any dead leaves or foliage and regular weeding, which helps discourage pests and diseases. Fruit trees are in full growth mode now and it’s worthwhile applying a side dressing of fruit tree fertiliser, especially with young trees. Water deeply when required to help establish strong root systems. Mulch around trees to reduce water loss and suppress weeds. As gardens reduce in size, containers on decks and balconies assume greater importance and can be used for growing

herbs, mini-vegetables or providing a splash of colour when planted with summer annuals. Being in a confined space, potted plants do deplete the soil more quickly of nutrients, so feed them approximately every 2-3 weeks with fertiliser, and keep them well watered. Summer flowering annuals should be in vigorous growth now and look stunning in the garden. They include alyssum, ageratum, aster, candytuft, cornflower, cosmos, marigold, nemesia, phlox, portulacas, petunias, salvias, strawflower and zinnias. Keep deadheading (removal of finished flowers) to promote continuous flowering. For ornamental trees and shrubs, fertilise them regularly and mulch to reduce water loss over hot dry summer months and to aid weed growth. Give them a summer prune; especially ornamental trees to help a

strong framework for later growth. Don’t forget to mulch your garden if you haven’t already. Here in the South Island try and have this done by the end of the month now that the soil has warmed up. Mulching is the process of covering the soil with organic matter to reduce water loss, add nutrients and help with weed control. Even if you are the most hands-off gardener this is the most important task to do, especially during the summer months. It’s vital in maintaining a healthy garden, helps protect plants from drying out and regulates soil temperatures. Apply a layer of mulch around plants, trees, and especially pots. As organic mulch breaks down over time it improves soil quality and structure by encouraging microorganisms and worm activity. •More gardening, p34

Garden insects can be divided into two groups: chewing insects and sap-sucking insects. Chewing insects eat plant tissue, which includes leaves, stems, roots, buds, flowers and fruit. They are controlled with a contact insecticide. Sap-sucking insects suck the sap from stems, young shoots, flower buds and leaves. To control these pests either a contact insecticide or a systemic insecticide can be used. If you grow edible crops you should use only contact insecticides. To help you identify which spray to use, you will need to identify the insect. Once you know what insect your plant has, we can point you to the right options. What’s the difference between systemic and contact insecticides? Systemic insecticides are absorbed by the plant’s leaves and travels through the sap of the plant; therefore, when an insect eats or sucks on the plant, the toxin is

in the plant and kills the insect. Contact insecticides work by contact only; therefore, it is essential to get full coverage including spraying the underside of the leaves. Generally a systemic spray is reapplied every 14–21 days and contact sprays should be reapplied every three to 10 days depending on the insect issue. Save the Bees! Where possible always use sprays that are safe for bees. Systemic sprays are not safe for bees because they stay in the plant for so long; therefore, if your plants are in flower avoid spraying with a systemic insecticide. Apply insecticides in late evening, night or early morning while bees are not foraging. Bees generally forage between an hour after sunrise right until an hour before sunset, and the sprays need to be dry before bees arrive, so allow some drying time (generally one hour). A great way to identify what you insect have is to bring in a plant sample in to our helpful staff, or to have a look in store or online at the Oderings Gardening Guide ‘Insect Pests’.

Manage daisies to bloom all year round

„„ By Rachel Vogan I CAN’T quite recall the exact moment my affair with daisies began. It could have been at primary school where I began making daisy-chain bracelets, or it could have been when I used to help Nana pick flowers for posies. Maybe it was when I started working as an apprentice at Bayliss Nurseries in the mid 1980s. It doesn’t really matter, what I do know is that it will be a life sentence, and that’s not a bad thing. I am rather nostalgic about these generous and giving blooms. These flowers just make me happy from the inside out. In my garden, I have daisies in bloom all year round, even over winter. A few bright blue flowers of the Kingfisher daisy, Felicia amelloides, sprinkle themselves over the domes of green, along with the bright sunny-yellow petals of Euryops pectinatus. Now summer is here it is all about the Marguerite daisy, Argyranthemum sp. and African daisies, Osteospermum sp. As soon as the temperatures warm up, the flowers buds are triggered into action and the plants will not be without blooms until the end of May, and in some cases, the end of June. Yes, I have a daisy addiction, and I have no intention of trying to curb it. Each season when new ones arrive in the shops, I swoop on a few and extend my collection. As my garden is quite full, the new

additions end up in pots and tubs, which work well as I use them to punctuate and decorate the patio and outdoor areas, and then when the weather turns I can move them to somewhere closer to the house, which is more sheltered in winter. This in turn, gives them a head start in the spring

when they bounce back into life quicker than the ones in the garden, which get no special care. Not all are hardy, so if you are in an area where frost carpets your garden in winter, plant them in pots or closer to the house.

As a cut flower, they last a good week in fresh water. Remove any foliage that will be below the water line and try not to squash too many into a vase at once. Pick them once the flower is fully open, as the buds do not tend to open once picked.

1 to taste Salt and freshly ground black pepper Directions Heat a grill, ridged grill-pan or frying pan. Use a sharp knife to make several cuts through the fat and slightly into the meat as this will stop it curling as it cooks. Lightly oil the steaks before putting them onto the heat. For juicy and medium rare steaks, cook them for about 7 minutes per side, turning once and seasoning with salt and pepper once you have done so. Remove from the heat, wrap loosely in foil and leave them to rest for 5 minutes. Mix the mustard and mayonnaise, then spread across the upper side of the meat. Salad: Cook the broccoli in boiling salted water for about 4 minutes, then drain and set aside in a warm bowl. Chop and seed the tomatoes, then add to the broccoli. Chop the garlic and tarragon finely, then chop the chives into 2cm lengths. Mix the herbs with the oil, lemon juice and almonds, then gently toss through the broccoli and season with salt and pepper.

Find the fur seals in Palliser Bay

„„ By Mike Yardley THERE IS a savage, raw-edged beauty to Cape Palliser, where the land and sea can come to serious blows on the southernmost tip of the North Island. But the summer months offer a more benign big blue sky experience, which I sampled with Stuart Edwards from Green Jersey Explorer Tours. Heading out from Martinborough’s mannered streets of tidy houses, the bucolic drive to the coast shuffled from pastoral plains to undulating countryside. I soon realised why the car rally crowd and two-wheeling weekend warriors swoon over these country roads, interspersed with photogenic little villages, like Pirinoa. Our first stop was at the Putangirua Pinnacles Scenic Reserve, for the 90min return walk to this bewitching rock formation, that made a starring appearance in Lord of the Rings. Steadily climbing through the steeply beechforested flanks of the hillside, the endurance test was made all the more cathartic by the elevated perspective across Palliser Bay. Arriving at the viewing platform, soak up the cinematic panorama of these hoodoo formations. Largely composed of greywacke gravels exposed by rain and floodwaters, harder layers of rock cap these fluted stone pillars, or hoodoos, which protects the underlying soil from the rain and prevents the soft gravels from eroding. In spite of being slammed by some of the fiercest weather in the nation, the gritty little fishing village of Ngawi is not deterred from launching their boats into the wild sea in search of a catch. Conspicuously lacking a sheltered harbour, fishing boats are hauled in and out of the sea by an astonishing battalion of bulldozers and tractors, which are as widely varied as the boats they pull. From the stony shoreline, I marvelled at this rustic eye-ball

PICTURESQUE: Palliser Bay from the lighthouse, the seal colony is the North Island’s largest breeding area. Left: A rustic eye-ball feast of workhorses. Right: Lipsmacking fish and chips at the Lake Ferry Hotel.

feast of workhorses, standing at attention like dutiful ocean sentinels. It would have to rate as one of the most novel and unusual coastal curiosities in New Zealand. It’s like a rendering of industrial-chic shoreline art. You may well have seen Ngawi on the TV recently, without even realising. The much-loved Lotto ad, featuring the father on a fishing boat and his son on a pirate ship, was shot at Ngawi. Further along the magnificent cliff-hugging coastline, the candy-striped Cape Palliser Lighthouse is a riveting landmark, beckoning you up the formidable flight of 258 wooden steps. The lung-busting ascent felt like hell,

but trust me, it’s the stairway to heaven, because the trippy coastal panorama to reward you at the top is utterly rhapsodic, serrated by the Kaikoura Ranges across the water. Below the lighthouse, lap up the North Island’s largest fur seal breeding colony, who contentedly spread themselves across the Cape Palliser’s nooks and crannies. During my November visit, our blubbery friends were out in force, with mothers teaching their pups acrobatic lessons in the rock pool, while the big bull seals loll about on the rocks, snorting and hollering like pickled members of an old boys’ club after a few too many gins.

History lessons seem to lurk around every corner. James Cook named Cape Palliser in honour of one of his naval mates and the name extends across the sweeping bay. Early European sheep farmers drove their flocks around the coast from the Wainuiomata Valley, with the bay serving as their gateway to the sprawling pastoral quilt of the Wairarapa Plains. Well-endowed with kai moana, Palliser Bay is one of the oldest inhabited regions for Maori, with archaeological sites indicating iwi first settled here in the 14th century. Close to Ngawai, Stuart pointed out the ancient stone walls early Maori built in the ridge lines to protect their kumara gardens. With hunger levels rising, it was over a lip-smacking lunch of the freshest fish and chips at the historic Lake Ferry Hotel, that I gleaned more insights into the region’s indigenous history. A fantastic way to immerse yourself in the rich heritage of Palliser Bay.

FAST FACTS •Since 2011, Green Jersey have been the go-to guys for hire bikes and cycling excursions through the Martinborough vineyards and beyond. They were on the frontlines of the development of the Rimutaka Cycle Trail. Stuart is now also offering year-round fully guided day excursions in the Wairarapa, including the new Palliser Bay Coastal Explorer. www.greenjersey. co.nz •While in the Wairarapa, I stayed at another heritage blockbuster, the Martinborough Hotel. This landmark property overlooking the town square hasn’t forgotten its past, its sense of place nor its reputation for elegance and paddock-to-plate culinary verve. www. martinboroughhotel.co.nz

Fashion

All hands pitching in to make On Saturday evening, Ara Institute of Canterbury’s fashion students showcased their end of year collections in the PITCH Fashion Show. Annabelle Dick went along for the day and took a look behind the scenes PITCH is one of the most highly-anticipated fashion events on Christchurch’s social calendar. It showcases emerging designers looking to create a name for themselves in the industry, and gives top designers a chance to scout them. While it’s a tertiary fashion show, PITCH is nothing to be scoffed at – it was where one of New Zealand’s most coveted designers, Georgia Alice, started her fashion career. So I went along to see how PITCH comes together. It’s 8am and in walked 97 models and 51 fashion students into Ara’s Whareora building. In 12 hours, these models will be dressed to the nines and students will be anxiously waiting backstage to see these models showcase their end of year collections. Clean-faced models flood the corridors looking for their

pre-selected designers. Soon they’re ushered into make-up to get their faces painted and hair done. The two make up artists, Janna and Cyrilla, have a belt of brushes strapped to their waists and MAC cosmetics scattered along their work bench. I’m in make-up heaven. In a matter of hours, these two magicians manage to transform nearly 100 ordinary-looking individuals into modern-day goddesses. If you ever feel like lowering your self-esteem, hang out backstage at a fashion show. While the models were busy looking pretty, the third year fashion students were running around the auditorium getting their collections together for judging. Three judges from Sunday Magazine, Ballantynes and Kathmandu were selected to award the Industry Design Award to a graduating student. Just over a dozen frantic

designers were armed with snips and lint rollers making last-minute touch-ups to their collection. For nearly three hours, judges critiqued and analysed their garments. During those hours, the students weren’t allowed access to their collections so sat waiting nervously. Having the opportunity to sit in and see these collections up close gave me a whole new

appreciation for fashion students. Their pieces were so wellconstructed and thought out that you could expect to see them at New Zealand Fashion Week. Luckily, these pieces were for sale – I could picture my wallet getting skinnier by the minute. As the day panned out, there was still a lot more to be done. Models ran through runway routines like a broken record to

perfect timing and choreography; students made last-minute adjustments to garments; and an endless supply of models needed their make-up touched up. Throughout the day, designers and models were also pulled aside for a shoot with photographer Dave Richards. A bit of panic broke loose when the realisation hit that one of the models had a bleach-blonde ‘T’ on the back of his head – the result of a bet he lost after the United States presidency election. This was soon rectified with a bit of Kiwi ingenuity and a sharpie.

Another model made a late appearance after spending the evening in the emergency department. He was concussed after a game of Friday night footy and split his head. “I’m fine,” he ensured the designers. The day was long and consisted of many coffee runs, nervous cigarettes and a lot of back and forth. I envied the designers’ skill, motivation and talent, but I did not want to be in their shoes. Come 8pm, it was show time. I sat front-row watching models walk the runway in these stu-

dent-made garments. The third year showcase was the ultimate finale. Designers created 12 looks as part of a cohesive collection. From 80s Miami to punk-rock inspired wear and modernised depression-era work wear – nearly all bases were covered. PITCH never ceases to impress me and this year was no exception. While their collections were innovative and out of the box, their was still a commercial element to them. I’m dying get my hands on quite a few of the pieces. The

How many words of three or more letters can you make, using each letter only once? Plurals are allowed, but no foreign words or words beginning with a capital. There’s at least one five-letter word. Good 14 Very Good 19 Excellent 23

HOW TO PLAY 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. © KenKen Puzzle LLC.

Black Sticks call up for Villa girl „„ By Gordon Findlater REPRESENTING YOUR school at the national secondary school athletics champs and making a Black Sticks debut in the space of 10 days may sound like a busy task. But that’s the reality for Jessie Anderson, 18, who is the youngest player named in Mark Hager’s squad to play Malaysia in a five-game series this month. The year 13 Villa Maria College student got the news while at a training camp with the Junior Black Sticks, who are currently competing at the Junior World Cup in Chile. The mid-fielder missed out on the trip to South America after being named as a reserve in the junior team. However, the news of a Black Sticks call up more than made up for the disappointment. “We got an email and I didn’t actually realise I’d made it until a couple of the girls came up to me to say congratulations, and I asked what for? Then mum rang me, I was really excited but pretty shocked,” said Anderson. “I haven’t had a great season

with injury and sickness, so it’s nice having this to finish the season on a high.” First, though, she will be running for a national title. She will

compete in the 4x400m relay at this weekend’s New Zealand Secondary Schools Track, Field and Road Race Championships in Auckland.

The team will go away with high hopes after winning the Canterbury schools championship in record time earlier this year. “Running and hockey complement each other so well. I don’t think I would be where I am with hockey without athletics. It’s always helped because I’d finish the running season and go into the hockey season fit,” said Anderson. There will be no rest for Anderson who will arrive in Auckland with her athletics’ team on Friday. She will train with some of her new Black Sticks teammates that evening before competing on the track over the weekend. Next week she will begin a Black Sticks training camp in Stratford ahead of the Malaysia series. Anderson will be joined by fellow Cantabrians Catherine Tinning, Phoebe Steele, Rachel McCann and Jenny Storey in the Black Sticks squad. The series will see the Black Sticks play five tests against the Malaysians in Stratford from December 12-18.

Superstocks hit Woodford Glen on Saturday THE SKY at Woodford Glen Speedway will be lit up on Saturday night when it hosts the Vertex Super Saloon Cup and superstock teams’ racing. The Vertex Super Saloon Cup will be the feature event of the night. More than 20 drivers from across the South Island will compete in their purpose-built 700 plus horsepower super saloons as they race to stand on the winners podium. If superstock action is more your thing, then make sure you are trackside to witness Canterbury’s Glen Eagles superstock team take on the might of the Nelson Tigers and Gisborne Giants. Superstock team racing is nothing short of exhilarating as each team races around in a battle of the strongest that often sees just one car finishing the race. The night will be finished off in style with a fireworks extravaganza. With Christmas just around the corner, Santa is also believed to be making an appearance.

Vintage motor-cycles race in Southern Classic VETERAN motor-cycle racer Mike Pero will compete at this weekend’s Southern Classic at Levels Raceway near Timaru – an event sponsored by his real estate company. Organised by the Classic Action Motorcycle Sports club, the event will be one of the largest classic races of its kind in the South Island. The definition of classic includes motor-cycles from the

1920s through to the mid-90s, with a variety of these machines racing at the weekend. Classic and post-classic racing is one of the fastest-growing sectors in world motor-cycling, as retired racers dust off their old machines and renew battles with former rivals. Beyond Australia, there will also be Irish, American and British riders attending the event. Co-ordinator Sue van den Heu-

vel said Mike Pero was an obvious sponsor for the event. “Mike competed in the 70s and 80s, and it took only an email to get his company’s backing,” said van den Heuvel. Pero, who is now the patron of Motorcycling New Zealand, started his working career as a motor-cycle mechanic and had six New Zealand championships and countless grand prix wins under his belt by the time he

was 23-years-old. He will ride a Yamaha TZ250W from the late 1980s in the event. Classes for the event include vintage, pre-war, classic, classic sidecar and post-classics from 1972-1996, plus parade races of past masters.

Upgrade further enhances Mazda6 „„ By Ross Kiddie AT THE media launch for the CX-9, Mazda New Zealand was upbeat about its product range and its position in New Zealand’s difficult, but buoyant, new car market. Deservedly so, the Mazda-branded product which is landing here now is comprehensive, desirable and downright pleasant to drive in. However, at the media conference I noticed one small glitch, the Mazda6 diesel is performing below the company’s expectation in terms of sales. That really surprised me, but I put it down to a small total market backtrack on diesel powered cars and Mazda, too, are feeling it. However, Mazda can look at the six diesel with a bit more optimism, the entire six range has just had an upgrade and it is a case of making a good car just that much better. I was fortunate enough to get behind the wheel of my favourite Mazda6, the diesel Limited station wagon. As you would expect from a mid-life enhancement, the new Mazda6 is quieter than before, it is been refreshed through the interior and is fitted with a raft of new kit – most of it for safety. Some of it includes advances to the brake support function, sensing pedestrians and vehicles at increased speed; there’s also the inclusion of traffic sign recognition which will warn the driver of approaching stop and speed signs, and G-vectoring control which operates in conjunction with steering wheel input to produce predictable vehicle handling behaviour. While these advances are mostly unseen, the reality is that the Mazda6 is a more involving and safer car, that along with a dynamic driving experience. Under the bonnet sits a 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine. It, too, has had some tweaks to make it quieter and more responsive. Mazda rate it with 129kW and 420Nm, both outputs delivered at usable points in the rev band at 2000rpm and 4500rpm respectively. Consequently, it is a spirited performer and delivers solid power through the mid-range

MAZDA6 WAGON: Upgraded with a wealth of new features for comfort, convenience and safety.

which is why I’ve always been smitten with diesel power, the surge is quite delightful. The acceleration figures are quite entertaining as well, the diesel variant will lunge to 100km/h from a standstill in 8.7sec, and will cut out a highway overtake in 4.7sec. On the subject of figures, when I’m picking up a test car I’m always smitten when it shows in excess of 800km before needing a refuel. • Price – Mazda6 wagon Ltd, $58,245 • Dimensions – Length, 4800mm; width, 1840mm; height, 1480mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive, 2191cc, 129kW, 420Nm, sixspeed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 8.7sec • Fuel usage – 5.4l/100km

The modern diesel is so fuel effective, Mazda claims a 5.4l/100km (54mpg) combined cycle rating for the twin-camshaft, 2191cc unit. That correlates well with the 6.3l/100km (45mpg) figure constantly showing during evaluation, it will also sip fuel at the rate of 5l/100km (56mpg) at a steady 100km/h, the engine turning over at just 1750rpm. Drive is channelled to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. Interaction between the two is fluid, the gears change quickly and are smooth, if the driver wants to take control over that process, steering wheel-mounted paddles allow him/her to do that. I had a photographic assignment to undertake at Whitecliffs in the Canterbury high country so I took the test car on a route which then backtracked through

Windwhistle and Hororata. The efforts Mazda has made to dull sound in the six have certainly worked, it is whisper quiet on the long straights, and even with large and low profile Bridgestone Turanza tyres (225/45 x 19in) there is little road noise. When it comes time to tackle the quick corners in that part of the country the Mazda6 is well balanced and it has directional accuracy well presented for vehicle type. I particularly like the way it feels through the steering, it is sharp and loaded with feedback as to how the tyres are behaving in a corner. I guess a lot of that comes back to the G-vectoring control system which learns and works with the driving style to produce a dynamic yet natural motion. The advancement Mazda has made with the new six doesn’t come at a cost, the entire range is priced much the same as the previous generation model which, to my way of thinking, represents good value. The diesel wagon sits tall in the range at $58,245, but with a starting point of $43,795, I can’t help but think the Mazda6 is one of the bargain sedan/wagon purchases in the market. It is also functional with its load space of 506-litres to 1648-litres. The final process of my daughter moving back home for the summer, from her student flat in Riccarton, involved dismantling her queen size bed and transporting it back to the Kiddie dwelling. I used the Mazda6 for that purpose, and although the bed head was problematic, the task was completed, reinforcing my enthusiasm for the modern station wagon.

an expansive garden and perhaps a home-run business but they require work so are not for everyone and a compact section might be more sensible if a tight budget or busy lifestyle.

; Bathrooms – Second and third bathrooms are great in homes with teenagers and a wet shower room is ideal for young children. A bath might be fashionable though is often not used and its absence could mean a more spacious bathroom.

; Storage – How much storage do you need? Weigh up what can truly be stored in the garage once vehicles are in, a preference in winter. Garages vary in size so check the size to ensure your vehicles will fit. Look also at where else the house offers storage capacity such as in hall cupboards, a large hot water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes (check their width and depth), walk-in robe, attic storage trusses, as well as the potential for hooks and shelving in the garage for bikes, tools, garden equipment and even kayaks. ; Off-street parking – How many vehicles can be parked on the driveway? Will this space be sufficient? ; Garden - Is there sufficient space for your children to play or for entertaining?

; Bedroom sizes – What are optimum sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate to slightly lower building costs while extra space can be useful. When looking at existing homes, consider whether the size of each bedroom is sufficient.

View by appointment.

Looking for a Property? What really counts You are in the market for a new property, scrolling the Internet, examining properties for sale and zeroing in on those with potential. They might be in locations that offer cheaper land, larger houses, or convenience to work or school. You may have visited show homes and open homes becoming confused, overwhelmed or swept away with emotional factors like having everything new, or extra features such as three car garaging.
