BP does the good thing Trees will cover up eyesore; stop glare FINALLY a good result for the little guy in society. After a campaign by Nor’West News and The Star and intervention from Mayor Lianne Dalziel, BP has planted trees to minimise the eyesore it has left St Albans resident Kazu Kano and his family with. Mr Kano (left) now has an almost 5mhigh, 20m-long back end of the new BP Edgeware shop along his boundary, badly reflecting light off the walls onto his windows, as well as towering over his backyard. Residents had opposed the BP expansion. But resource consent was granted on the basis that the impact on residents would be minimal – how that could have been determined beggars belief. The residents who opposed the application had no chance of winning. They were completely overpowered by BP’s suite of experts and lawyers. The residents didn’t have that kind of a war chest to hire experts to fight an even battle. And, when BP initially said it would only comply with landscaping as per the resource consent, that was another big blow.

But now the oil giant has changed its tune, and today we show readers the outcome – see photos on the page. Last week, 3.5m magnolia grandiflora Blanchards were planted. They will grow to twice that size. They are mixed with pittosporum tenuifolium, which will be maintained at 3.5m in height. Mr Kano is thrilled. “You moved mountains. Thank you very much for your sympathy,” Mr Kano said of Nor’West News and The Star. He was also grateful to Ms Dalziel for her intervention. Said Star Media (publisher of Nor’West News and The Star) editor in chief Barry Clarke: “This has been a good outcome. But the problem could have been avoided with some commonsense. “BP deserves credit for changing its stance, and also Lianne Dalziel for taking up the issue when others didn’t. “It also shows that the resource consent process needs to be addressed so society’s little guys like Mr Kano and the other residents at least have an equal chance of stating their cases.”

RELIEF: The trees that will eventually cover the back end of the Edgeware BP shop which runs along Kazu Kano’s boundary. Below: What they look like from his side, and right, the new BP shop.

Tuesday December 20 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

GREAT NEWS for Kazu Kano and his family today (see page 1). BP has planted shrubs and trees that should negate the glare and eyesore he would have been left with as the result of the oil giant’s Edgeware expansion. Nor’West News and The Star have fought hard to get a good outcome for the Kanos. So it’s been very gratifying the family has some good news. But as I say on our front page today commonsense should have prevailed in the first place. I suspect someone up the BP ladder had to make a call or continue to face the adverse publicity they were deservedly getting. So while it took a while, a bouquet for BP for finally seeing sense. Why they were granted resource consent in the first place is another matter all together. – Barry Clarke

News Sex worker fix long way off „„ By Andrew King THE PROBLEM of sex workers in a St Albans neighbourhood may not be solved for some time. Residents, police and city council staff met last month to discuss what can be done to move prostitutes off the residential end of Manchester St to a more appropriate spot away from homes. Two security cameras were installed by the city council in July on the corner of Purchas and Manchester Sts to deter customers and document antisocial behaviour. However, residents say they have failed, as more often than not there is a sex worker on every corner under the cameras’ watch. City council head of strategic policy Helen Beaumont said it will consider what amendments can be made to the Public Places Bylaw – including the possibility of controlling streetbased sex workers. A review is scheduled for next year. She said amendments had been considered in the past. “The concern here is around establishing a legally valid bylaw

In Brief SHOPPING SPREE WINNERS The winners of Shop Scan & Win will each receive a $1000 shopping spree at participating retailers. The winners are: Marlene Dobson, who shopped at Pataka, Gordon Milne (Quick Stop Liquor) and Ben Cloake (Sushi Lane). CYCLEWAY APPROVED The Northern Line Cycleway was approved by the major cycleway routes committee last week so construction can start next year. The decision follows community feedback on the routes. It is one of 13 major cycleways to be built over the next seven years. Construction is already under way on Papanui Parallel.

clause that would withstand appeal and enable effective enforcement,” she said. Resident Matt Bonis said it was time the police and city council acknowledged the problem and started to do something about it. “We [the residents] have been terrified about the situation for more than five years, but that is now starting to lift with this progress,” he said.

Solicitor and Labour candidate for Christchurch Central, Duncan Webb, was hired by Mr Bonis to represent the residents. “He has helped us cut through some of the red tape and get our point across,” Mr Bonis said. Papanui-Innes Community Board chairwoman Ali Jones has been working with the city council and residents for a number of years to find a

solution to the issue and said it was fantastic news to hear there could be progress. “The big question now is why it has taken so long to come to this solution. That is what I will be asking,” she said. HAVE YOUR SAY: Should sex workers be allowed to operate in residential areas? Share your thoughts with us. Email andrew.king@ starmedia.kiwi

NO-PASSING LINES Traffic issues on Blighs Rd are being looked at by the PapanuiInnes Community Board, which resolved to paint a no-passing line from 181 Blighs Rd to the intersection with Papanui Rd. It has also asked for a video audit of the road approaching Papanui Rd before Christmas and in February when schools’ return. Residents have complained in the past to the board about the build up of traffic and vehicles crossing the centre line to avoid other vehicles turning left onto Papanui Rd.

Caring for TurTles

Foot injury needing veterinary attention. Turtle Facts: Turtles are not your average pets. They are fascinating creatures that aren’t particularly complicated to care for as long as you invest a little time and have the right equipment, you can enjoy them for a possible 25 to 40 years! Pet turtles in NZ are usually red-eared sliders or snake necks. Turtles are cold blooded so regulate their temperature from their environment, moving between sunning area and the layers of warm and cool water. Turtles have hard shells made up of around 60 bones covered by plates called scutes. Scutes are shed once or twice a year and can be easily scratched by minor trauma or softened by prolonged immersion in warm water. When they bask in the sun, their scutes dry and firm back up. The shell is part of its skeleton which is attached to the spine and the rib cage so they can’t crawl out of it. They can feel pressure and pain through their shells, just as you can feel pressure through your fingernails. Enviroment Turtles can grow to be 13-28cm in length so they will need a relatively large enclosure. An outdoor enclosure is the best place for your turtles – one with water to swim, rocks to sunbathe on and some shelter under which to keep cool. If you are going to keep your turtle in an aquarium, it is very important to keep it clean. Turtles are messy eaters so the water needs to be changed regularly & good filter is essential. Plenty of natural light is good, but they also need special UV bulbs and a heat lamp. A full spectrum UVA/ UVB reptile light is necessary for the production of calcium and maintenance of the hardness of their shells. The ideal temperature in an aquarium should be carefully monitored and in the correct range. Gravel is not necessary, and very small gravel can be ingested by your turtle and this can cause blockage problems. Use stones that are large enough not to be swallowed or river rocks.

Diet A healthy, balanced diet for turtles consists of a wide variety of foods, from snails to alfalfa. Red-eared turtles are omnivores, eating mostly meat when young and becoming vegetarian as they age and need less protein. Juveniles turtles (up to 1yr old) should be fed twice a day and adults every second day. They can only feed in water. Turtles like to eat worms, snails, insects, fish and boiled chicken. The plants they prefer include most varieties found in tropical fish tanks, plus lettuce, cabbage, alfalfa, and berries. Turtle food bought from a pet shop contains essential vitamins and minerals including calcium, which is needed for the development of the shell. A poor diet results in a soft shell and a lethargic pet. Do not feed - Red meat or processed meat. Cat or dog food, avocado, spinach, silverbeet, peas, corn, cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, fruits, raw chicken, rhubarb, beetroot, tomato, celery Turtle Problems If your Turtle has the correct diet and environment it is unlikely to get ill or have problems but there are a few things to look out for. These include: Soft shell syndrome (Metabolic Bone Disease): a result of poor diet and/or insufficient lighting. Fungal infections: a cotton-like layer on the shell, eyes or mouth. Respiratory infections: Wheezing, lethargy, a runny nose and loss of appetite, all due to an environment that is too cold. If you see any of these symptoms in your pet, make sure you take them to us for assessment and treatment. I really enjoy looking after the turtles that come through our vet clinic. They are beautiful, amazing and resilient creatures. There is never a dull moment at work and you never know what creatures we will treat next!

This week’s opinion piece was written by retiring City Missioner Michael Gorman about not losing sight of what Christmas really means For most of us Christmas is a time of great happiness. Children are excited as they receive gifts and we use the time to get together as families and with friends to celebrate. For some people, this time of year also has great religious significance as we recall the birth of Jesus. Whatever our belief, it is a time to get together with those we love and enjoy ourselves. Not everyone has good reason to celebrate. For some people, Christmas reminds them of happier days long gone. Days when, for example, they were not fighting addiction, had not suffered loss and separation and were not unemployed and

living in poverty. Christmas can be a time of great loneliness if there has been death or family separation. Many old people are forgotten in the busy Christmas rush. Christmas can also be a time of over spending. We all want to give as much as we can to our children and to those we love. We are often seduced by advertising and easy credit into buying goods that we cannot afford and we are then in debt for much of the next year. While not wanting to be the Grinch who stole

Christmas, maybe we should cut back our spending to what we can afford. Homemade gifts or offers to help out during the year are just as acceptable as expensive presents and still tell people we love them. Remembering the lonely and being aware of the need to include them in our celebrations and giving people our time may be the very best gift. And, if it is safe to do so, then Christmas may be the time for family reconciliation. Even if Christmas has no religious meaning for us we can still give love – the greatest gift of all.

Liquor store opposition grows Petition launched to stop licence application „„ By Andrew King CAMPAIGNERS against the proposed Trafford St liquor store want their strategy to be a blueprint for stopping other booze outlets across the city. Samarth Rajeshkumar Limbachiya has applied for a liquor licence in the Harewood street, which has been met with big opposition from residents and community board members. More than 1100 people have signed a petition to stop the liquor store. Petition co-organiser Bruce Tulloch said he believed the community response would be the same in other residential areas. “It will not just be our neighbourhood that doesn’t want another liquor store,” Mr Tulloch said. Fendalton-Waimairi-

TAKING A STAND: Bruce Tulloch (left) and Colin Fussell say their community is the same as many others throughout the city and adding alcohol into the mix is a bad idea. PHOTO: ANDREW KING

Harewood Community Board member Linda Chen will attend the licence hearing, thought to be scheduled for late January, to represent the community’s view. “The residents approached me to help and I stuck my hand up when the board wanted a representative,” she said. Mrs Chen, who lives in the area, said it was great to see a community standing up for what it wants. “It’s not about who is right and who is wrong, it is about

what is best for the community,” she said. Mr Tulloch said the location was unsuitable and would attract an unwanted element. He said there were plenty of options around for buying alcohol. “They are making a profit from public harm and it has to stop,” he said. Colin Fussell has lived in the area for more than 30 years and is no stranger to getting behind a community cause. He collected more than

12,000 signatures himself in the mid-1950s to stop the level of Lake Manapouri in Fiordland National Park from rising for power generation. “You have to be brave to stick your neck out . . . but it is important to set a precedent and reduce antisocial behaviour in residential areas,” he said. City council regulatory compliance head Tracey Weston said, so far, 38 public objections had been submitted, as well as the petition against the licence application.

New site for toy library „„ By Andrew King MORE SPACE, a front lawn and cows nearby to entertain the children – Papanui Toy Library believes it has relocated to an almost perfect spot. The well-used library was facing a bleak future after news that its premises at 472 Cranford St was to be demolished by the end of the year due to earthquake damage. But it has now moved into its new home at 185 Cavendish Rd, a place which ticks nearly all the boxes, according to secretary Natalie Sisson. “It is almost the perfect place. (It) could be a bit bigger – with the 1000 plus toys we have, we need a lot of room,” she said. Even with the move, Ms Sisson said people are still coming through the door and remarking about how lucky they are. “There is a big grass area out the front, some cows that the kids love and diggers over the fence. [The children] love it,” she said. The service is used by about 100 members and has been in operation since 1993. It is open to parents Wednesday evening and Saturday morning. The library is planning an open day on February 25 to let people know they have moved into the neighbourhood.

Tasman Gillies

Environmentalist follows in the Tasman Gillies, 27 of Ngāi Tahu (Ngāti Wheke), is a third generation tāngata tiaki and guardian of Lyttelton Harbour. Annabelle Dick talked to him about his work and how he almost followed a completely different career path You work for Ngāi Tahu, can you tell me about what you do? I’m an environmental advisor – mahinga kai monitoring and enhancement for Ngāi Tahu. You’re also tāngata tiaki – what does that mean and what do you do in that role? Tāngata tiaki are guardians responsible for managing fisheries resources. In regards to my role as tāngata tiaki, it’s an ongoing thing. It’s the legislative side so it’s a ministerial appointment. Effectively we manage the mātaitai (an identified traditional fishing ground with special status) and issue customary fishing permits for the ngāti wheke area. In the harbour, ngāti wheke is a representative on the Whakaraupo/Lyttelton Catchment Management Plan so I’m the science advisor for that. You’re a third generation tāngata tiaki, can you tell me about your family and their involvement? My pōua was involved in the establishment of the first

mataitai reserve at Rapaki. The whole purpose is a recognition of rangatiratanga and the relationship with the traditional fishing grounds and customary fishing management within the mataitai. They were made the first ever tāngata tiaki. Did having the family connection prompt you to follow it as a career? It definitely influenced it, but I didn’t go to university intending to study it or come out involved in this area. My Dad’s a GP so I went down to study medicine and in the first year I knew it wasn’t for me. I’m not sure if I would’ve got into my second year, but regardless, I didn’t want to do it. Funnily enough, I told my dad and he laughed and said “good, because I didn’t think you wanted to do it, but I didn’t want to influence your decision.” I laugh at that because I could’ve saved myself a year but, at the same time, I had to realise it. I changed course and ended up gravitating towards marine

science and work associated with mahinga kai. Did you learn a lot about your family in the process? Yes. You start to run into people that used to know my pōua and talk to them. The people I work with now at Ngāi Tahu worked with him when

he was alive and, being an iwi, some of them are related to him as well so you hear stories. You definitely learn the technical things like dates and specific legislative parts and what mātaitai is and taiapure. Considering the involvement your pōua had, do you feel any

pressure to live up to his name? Not at all – if anything it’s more understanding about what he wanted. The process that him and Henry Couch were involved with, and what they did to get the mātaitai in place, it was a lengthy process. For me, it’s about understanding what he wanted to achieve because Ngāi Tahu always uses the saying “Mō tātou, ā, mō kā uri, ā muri ake ne,” which means “for us and our children after us.” It’s a pretty straightforward concept. Knowing my pōua was involved in that whole process, and being third generation tāngata tiaki, it’s quite a literal thing for me. In his mind, he wanted to sustain the fisheries and have management over it so our generation could too. It comes back to the concept of kaitiakitanga, or kaitiaki, which means guardianship or stewardship over the environment. Ngāti Wheke is my hapu, so that’s Rāpaki. Our area is Lyttelton Harbour or Whakaraupo and because I whakapapa back to there, kaitiaki or guardianship is also a responsibility – so our world view is we have a responsibility to take care of it as well.

footsteps of his ancestors Being tāngata tiaki is not so much about continuing his legacy – it’s more what I should be doing anyway. The kaitiaki concept isn’t exclusive to Maori, I think people should have a responsibility towards the environment and take care of it because we’re being trusted to take care of it while we’re here for future generations. Did you grow up at Rāpaki? We moved to Rāpaki when I was nine. I was born in Australia and lived in a little town called Alstonville near Byron Bay. Both of my parents are Kiwi and I have two older sisters. We kind of grew up in the bush – we lived in a big valley and the next neighbour was a kilometre away so we had all the room to play around but we had to be careful because it was Aussie. We knew we were Maori but, in Australia, we were absent from the culture in a sense. When I moved here, it was a big learning curve. I think that was why our parents wanted us to move back to see those things. What does your family do? My mum and dad still live in Rāpaki – he’s a doctor. My sister works for the Ministry of Education, but she was previ-

ously a Maori teacher at Lincoln High School. My other sister is a dentist in Masterton. What was it like moving to Rāpaki? It was a shock initially. You can know you’re Maori but then someone goes “oh you’re Maori, do you want to be in the Kapa Haka group?” I didn’t even know what that was. People look at you funny because they know

things about your culture that you don’t. But in saying that, my sister became a Maori teacher. It’s been a massive learning curve but also a really good one. It’s more than the acknowledgement I’m Maori now. Now I’m part of it. Where did you go to school? I went to Lyttelton West then Cashmere High School. I heard you were head boy,

too? You kept that one quiet. Yeah I was . . . that was a laugh. Do you have any hidden talents? I won the dance competition at the work Christmas function out of like 300 people. I don’t know what kind of dancing I was doing and when and where I picked it up . . . I just free-styled. I think I picked it up from those Step Up films from years ago. I

was dressed as The Wiggles with a few of the guys from work. What do you do for fun? I love surfing and skiing and I used to do waka ama, too, which is outrigger canoeing. Have you travelled overseas? In 2014, after I had submitted my masters thesis, I went to Canada. I lived in Whistler for a year working at the bar and on the mountain and just skied and had fun. I had a good time and, by the end of the year, I came back wanting to make use of my degree and be more involved in something besides living paycheck to paycheck. Were there any bear encounters? Yeah, walking through the village early morning and I was still quite tired and went through the forest section in the valley. I looked up and there’s a beer standing just in front of me. He didn’t really care so I just turned around cause I didn’t want to deal with it. You get them everywhere. They’re quite clever so a lot of the door handles are knobs because they know how to open the levers. Stuff like that I wasn’t used to.

Stream clean-up

SIXTY-FIVE TONNES of accumulated silt has been blasted out of an Ilam stream in an effort to entice trout back to breed and improve the habitat for other aquatic life. Recently North Canterbury Fish & Game staff spent two weeks co-ordinating the removal of sediment from the Wairarapa Stream, one of the Avon River’s most important tributaries. The operation removed silt which had accumulated over the years from stormwater drains flowing into the stream, with about 540 sq m of stream bed near the Jellie Park Recreation and Sports Centre cleaned. It equated to 120kg of silt per sq m cleaned. Fish & Game officer Emily Arthur-Moore said the goal was to make the stream suitable for trout to spawn in and habitable for other aquatic life. “Silt layers on top of the stream gravels had smothered the invertebrates that live in the stream bed and, by removing the sediment, aquatic life has the chance to prosper again,” she said. “Various techniques were used during the two weeks, including water jet blasters, diggers and a specialised piece of equipment

called a sand wand,” Ms ArthurMoore said. Support was given to the project by the city council, Environment Canterbury and Nelson-based dredging and water treatment consultants, Southwater, which also provided various pumps and hoses. The stream bed was agitated using either the water jet blasters or the sand wand and the disturbed silt was captured and then re-

moved to a de-watering site. After a process to remove the silt, the clean water was returned to the stream and the sediment remaining was taken to a landfill for disposal. Monitoring was carried out throughout the project to assess levels of sediment going downstream. “Large amounts of rubbish were also removed during the process, mainly broken glass and crockery, but also items of footwear, batteries and plastic.” One volunteer, Tony Findlay, grew up in the area 50 years ago and recalled being able to drink the stream water from the three springs that once fed the stream bed that he was working in. “Not that you would do that now,” he said. The stream will be monitored over the coming years to see if the improved habitat increases the diversity of invertebrates, which trout predate on. Also of interest is the degree that silt may return to cover the stream bed. Ms Arthur-Moore said it’s hoped the techniques and knowledge gained from the project can be applied to other enhancement projects around the region.

FreshChoice, SuperValue give back to community THIS Christmas, FreshChoice and SuperValue supermarkets are encouraging customers to give back to their local community. Give Local allows customers to donate non-perishable food items and health products to those in need. Specially-marked food collection trolleys are in place now at every FreshChoice and SuperValue store throughout New Zealand until New Year’s Day. All items collected are destined to support local charities, such as the Salvation Army, community food banks and

community-led food collections from organisations like the Lions Club. Christchurch-based FreshChoice and SuperValue brands manager Liz de Lange said: “We encourage customers to look at what they are able to afford and pop a few extra items in their trolley to give to the local charity.” The supermarkets are also collecting for the Red Cross’s earthquake appeal at all checkouts. Collections have been started by a $5000 donation from the supermarket group.

Food business focuses on

healthy choices Their experiences on New Zealand reality TV show MKR was the catalyst for two Christchurch women, Ricki and Jessie, to start their own food business – with the focus firmly on healthy eating. The pair spent many hours spent tasting, testing and developing a series of healthy, nutritionally balanced salads before launching Healthkicks in April 2015. “We wanted to provide healthy options for everyday people,” says Ricki. “Everyone’s busy these days and as a result they sometimes find it quicker and easier to get fast foods, which are often unhealthy. We wanted to change that culture and offer healthier options.” Their selection of fresh, tasty salads can be purchased in takeaway containers, which hold a generous portion of up to 500 grams for $10. The salads can also be vacuum-packed, so they will last longer in the fridge. Those without lettuce can be served hot or cold. They are also available as platters to serve at parties and barbeques, and with

Christmas Day and other festive occasions coming up, these would be ideal, Ricki says. They are delivered in vacuum packs for easy storage. And as a healthy sweet treat for ‘afters’, Healthkicks has the delicious snickers slice. Items are ordered through the website, healthkicks.nz, with free delivery available throughout the Christchurch area – minimum purchase $30. Orders placed by 6pm will be delivered the following day, Monday to Friday. “We are finding that customers are ordering a week’s worth of salads on a Monday so they are set up for the week,” says Ricki. “Our food speaks for itself. As well as vegetables and proteins it contains healthy carbs, so it keeps you full.” Healthkicks also has a shop in Avonhead, at 104 Staveley Street, phone 342 9541, where customers can purchase items or pick up their orders. Business hours are Monday 9am-1.30pm, Tuesday to Friday, 6.30am-1.30pm.

Ph 359 4988

Christmas – a time for celebration & worship Christmas Day is a holy day for Christians who mark the 25 December as the birth of Christ. They come together in prayer and song, heralding the coming of Jesus, the son of God. Leading up to Christmas day is the period of advent. It begins on the Sunday closest to the 30 November, with the advent calendar counting down the days to Christmas while the advent wreath contains five candles representing the Sundays before the special day and one for Christmas Day. Joseph, a carpenter and Mary had been travelling 90 miles from Nazareth to Bethlehem; as Joseph was required to participate in a Census where the Roman rulers counted the number of Jewish people for tax purposes.

Heavily pregnant Mary had been riding on a donkey. She gave birth in a cave stable where they slept with the animals due to there being no room at the inn. The nativity scene shows Jesus lying in a manger in the stable; often re-enacted by children as part of church services leading up to Christmas Day with some churches even having live animals as part of this service. A bright Star signalled the coming of Christ and guided wise men who took gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the new born while shepherds were led there by an angel. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services are a time for rejoicing the birth of Christ when carols are sung and there is much happiness.

We wish everyone a very merry Christmas and happy hoildays Cafe open from 11am
