Huge cost to clean up lake, waterways RARE: Sharon the mutant sheep with AgResearch scientists David Scobie and Jeff Plowman. ​

Sharon at the cutting edge of hair research LOOK CLOSELY, there is something unusual about Sharon the sheep - and it could help us understand what makes human hair curly or straight. Far from being just one of the flock, the Dunsandel Merino Corriedale cross is one of about five or six ‘mutant’ Felting Lustre sheep around the country which have been identified for study by AgResearch. Research into mutant sheep has AgResearch scientists hoping for a greater understanding

of curly and straight hair in humans, and the potential for innovative new wool products. While it is not known how many Felting Lustre sheep there are, they are rare and share the naturally occurring trait of straight wool, instead of the usual crimped wool. “With these mutant sheep, we can for example look at twin lambs where one has straight wool and another crimped wool – or one animal that transforms from straight to crimped wool

over time - and study the key differences,” scientist Jeff Plowman said. “This can then be applied to our understanding of the differences in human hair. It’s an opportunity we would never have been able to get with human subjects.” The work began in 2011, when an Otago lamb with an unusual coat was brought to the attention of AgResearch staff involved in wool research. • Turn to page 4

„„ By Tom Doudney THE SECOND phase of a programme to clean up Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere is expected to involve a substantially larger financial investment. Environment Canterbury briefed Christchurch City councillors on the Whakaora Te Waihora programme at a public meeting on Thursday. A document initially included in the agenda for that briefing indicated that the second phase, to be carried out over the next 10 years, would cost a total of $95 million. This would complement a “community contribution” to cleaning up the wider Selwyn Waihora catchment of $774.6 million over the same period. After the Selwyn Times inquired about the figures, the document was pulled from the agenda and no mention was made of the costs at the briefing.

The first phase of Whakaora Te Waihora, from 2012 to 2016, involved an $11 million work programme over three years, jointly funded by central Government, ECan, Fonterra and Ngai Tahu. ECan and Ngai Tahu have been exploring options to fund the second phase, including co-funding arrangements with central Government, private investment, and alternative regional council funding models. ECan chairman David Bedford confirmed that about $95 million in resources would be required to progress lake restoration actions over the next 10 years. “The Te Waihora CoGovernance Group is currently progressing the draft investment approach. No further detail can be given on investment in Te Waihora restoration until that is finalised,” he said. • Turn to page 4

Inside

LAKE ELLESMERE and surrounding waterways are a disgrace, and today we reveal on page 1 the huge cost to clean it all up. We’re talking hundreds of millions of dollars, and that is simply eye watering. And it seems the cost - and who will bear it - are very sensitive issues for Environment Canterbury. You’ll need to read reporter Tom Doudney’s article for that, but it is fairly clear that the public will be picking up the tab for some if not most of the clean up bill. Sharon the mutant sheep also features on page 1 today - she’s involved in cutting edge research that will give scientists a greater understanding of curly and straight hair in humans. Cutting edge; yep, I know it’s not a good one... – Barry Clarke

Some businesses affected by stricter quake rules nine bands.

„„ By Tom Doudney A “SMALL number” of Selwyn building owners will be affected by stricter new time frames for strengthening or demolishing buildings identified as earthquake prone. The Government’s Building (Earthquake-prone Buildings) Amendment Act will come into effect from July. As Selwyn has been identified as an area of high seismic risk, the district council will have five years to identify earthquake prone buildings, or two and a

half years for ‘priority buildings.’ Once identified, owners will have 15 years to strengthen or demolish their buildings, or seven and a half years for priority buildings. Priority buildings include those used for education or which have unreinforced masonry that could fall onto a public footpath or road as well as some other categories of buildings. The district council already had its own policy on earthquake prone buildings, imple-

mented in 2011, under which 50 buildings had been identified. Those owners had been given between 15 and 30 years to strengthen or demolish their buildings. The new Government legislation, introduced to provide national consistency, replaces the district council policy. In a statement, the district council said the new legislation would “affect a small number of buildings in Selwyn.” It plans to review its list of 50 buildings and make sure it is up to date. The buildings

have already had engineering assessments completed but it is expected that about eight of these will need to be redone due to new methodology requirements. About five or six buildings in Selwyn are expected to be ‘priority’ buildings. District council building manager Vanessa Beavon declined to identify which buildings were on the list, but said it would be published in the form of an online register when the legislation came into force.

Lincoln University recreation centre staff collecting bras to send to women in the Pacific Islands have had more than 500 donated. They were taking part in Uplift Project, which takes collections in New Zealand, Australia and Singapore. Staff promoted the project around the university and on Facebook, with bras sent from as far as the North Island. The bras were donated by other university staff and members of the community and have been delivered to a project co-ordinator in Christchurch.

GOOSE COOKED A single goose is thought to have been responsible for three small fires and a power outage which affected about 145 homes in Leeston, Brookside, Irwell, Springston and the surrounding areas on Tuesday last week. Firefighters found a dead goose near downed power lines on Selwyn Rd. It is thought the goose flew into the wires, which snapped and set fire to grass and gorse. The outage lasted up to three and a half hours for some residents. LINCOLN QUAKE Lincoln residents may have been jolted awake in the early hours of Saturday morning by a 2.9 magnitude quake centred 1km west of town. The quake struck at 2.40am at a depth of 5km.

SPOT THE DIFFERENCE: Sharon’s straight wool, on the right, alongside a sheep with standard crimped wool.

Sheep may hold key to genetic mystery •From page 1 Its appearance was so unusual that the lamb was initially thought to be a cross between a sheep and a goat. Part of this was because the lamb’s straight lustrous coat was reminiscent of an Angora goat. Genetic testing showed it was 100 per cent sheep and its coat was the result of natural mutation. “As a result, we started trying to locate more of these rare sheep, so we could study what makes them

different and how proteins in the wool affect the fibres,” Dr Plowman said. “Thanks to the assistance of farmers who came forward with these sheep, we were able to do that. We have found they show a radical change in wool structure and properties that can be tied into specific protein changes.” Sharon was bought by AgResearch from a North Canterbury farmer and now lives on a farm in Dunsandel.

•From page 1 Mr Bedford said the Te Waihora Co-Governance Group, comprised of ECan, Ngai Tahu, the district council and Christchurch City Council, also recognised the commitment made by the community and several agencies in managing water in the Selwyn Waihora catchment. “This contribution has been estimated at $774.6 million over a 10-year period – an estimate made considering a number of variables and current community and agency involvement, including ongoing work on farms, the Central Plains Water scheme, restoration work undertaken by the community, volunteer hours and in-kind contributions.” ECan declined to comment on how much of that figure represented actual financial investment as opposed to the value of work done voluntarily. Work to be completed in Whakaora Te Waihora’s second phase includes reducing phosphorous and sediment in the

It is expected to take about another 35 years to restore the health of the ecologically significant lake. During an unrelated debate at Wednesday’s district council meeting, councillor Pat McEvedy said discussions

were underway on whether the Central Plains Water scheme could be used to augment flows in the stressed Selwyn River. The river, which flows into the lake, has just recorded its sixth consecutive month of record low flows. After the meeting, Cr McEvedy told the Selwyn Times he couldn’t go into further details at this stage.

News Darfield, Kirwee sewer scheme „„ By Tom Doudney DARFIELD AND Kirwee residents will be asked whether the towns should get a reticulated sewer scheme. Initial public feedback will be sought during public consultation on the district council’s 2017-2018 Annual Plan in April. Any proposal to progress the scheme would be subject to full public consultation in April next year as part of the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan process. Dwellings in Darfield and Kirwee currently rely on septic tanks and other onsite treatment systems. With about 2000 residents, Darfield is the largest town in New Zealand without reticulated sewerage. Canterbury medical officer of health Alistair Humphrey said in 2012 that the lack of reticulated sewerage was an ongoing contamination risk. However, a 2014 Ministry of Health assessment found it was unlikely that septic tanks in the area contributed to illnesses through drinking water contamination. The Darfield and Kirwee Wastewater Working Party, established in 2014, did not

believe the existing situation was having a detrimental effect on the environment or public health. However, it recommended public consultation be undertaken as a reticulated scheme would encourage commercial and industrial development as well as more intensive residential development such as retirement villages in Darfield. A reticulated sewer system is thought to be more efficient for high intensity developments. Darfield Community

Committee chairman and Malvern Butchery owner Paddy McKay said it was good the district council was consulting people on the matter. Reticulated sewerage was “one of those things that’s going to have to happen somewhere along the line if we keep expanding,” he said. “I think people are coming to accept that.” A draft 2016 report by consulting firm MWH found the cost of installing a wastewater system in Darfield would be $23,700 per household.

It is not yet known whether residents outside the Darfield and Kirwee area would contribute to the cost of any potential scheme through district-wide rating. Mr McKay said the cost per household was similar to what it would cost to install a septic tank for a newly-built house. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do Darfield and Kirwee need a reticulated sewer scheme, and if so, who should pay for it?

In Brief LUCKY ESCAPE A Christchurch man suffered serious injuries but it could have been worse after a spectacular crash at about 1am on Saturday which blocked traffic on State Highway 1 between Rolleston and Burnham for more than an hour and a half. Sergeant Grant Stewart said the man, 23, was travelling north when he lost control of his car and hit a power pole snapping it off at the base. The car had spun and rolled, coming to rest on its roof in the middle of the road. Sergeant Stewart said the road had been strewn with debris from the crash for about 150m and the man was very lucky to be alive. TRAILER ACCIDENT A trailer loaded with furniture came lose from a car towing it along Lincoln-Rolleston Rd on Saturday afternoon. The trailer hit a power pole, going through a fence and causing a fire in a paddock near the Nobeline Dr intersection. Sergeant Grant Stewart said a motorist had used a fire extinguisher they had with them to put out the fire, which had been caused by power lines arcing after the trailer struck the pole. The trailer detached after the car’s tow ball snapped off.

Burglary suspects in high-vis nabbed „„ By Tom Doudney A MAN and woman alleged to have burgled a Prebbleton house wearing high visibility vests were caught after the woman was spotted outside a nearby shop the next day. And police believe the pair may been planning to target a string of other properties in the area. Prebbleton resident Anthony Dylan Miller 32, and North New Brighton resident Erin Jane

McMurdo, 27, were arrested on Friday after McMurdo was spotted outside a dairy in Prebbleton just down the road from the Kintyre Pl property they allegedly burgled the previous day. A neighbour to the owners of the property which was burgled had seen them leaving the property and recognised McMurdo when she saw her outside the dairy the next day. She immediately called police who arrived to find McMurdo

in a red Honda which had been stolen from North New Brighton on January 2. She was found to have items taken from the Kintyre Pl property in her possession. Police located Miller later in the day. The pair are alleged to have stolen ammunition, camping and fishing equipment, electronic devices and jewellery from the Prebbleton property. McMurdo has been charged

with burglary, theft of a car and driving while forbidden, while Miller has been charged with burglary. Both will appear in court in April. Sergeant Grant Stewart said the pair had a list of other properties in the Prebbleton area which police believed could relate to plans for further burglaries. Police were also investigating whether they were linked to another recent burglary in the area.

“We got them at a good time,” he said. Sergeant Stewart said residents shouldn’t assume anyone wearing a high visibility vest was legitimate, especially in an unofficial vehicle. “If you are suspicious of activity in the area, phone police immediately,” he said. “Police urge homeowners to ensure their houses are locked and secure and keep an eye on neighbouring properties.”

Tania Roxborogh

Author motivated by historical Award-winning author and Lincoln High School english teacher Tania Roxborogh is launching her latest children’s novel My New Zealand Story: Bastion Point on Thursday. She spoke to Tom Doudney about the book, creating plays for her students and how a hard childhood shaped her and her writing How many books have you written? I think 30. Tell me about this latest one. A couple of years ago I was doing my degree in Maori at Otago University and I did a paper on politics and persuasion – the Maori political movement from 1836 to 1997. The lecturer talked about the Bastion Point story which I remembered from when I was about 11 and lived up in Whangarei. I had been aware that my parents had sort of been involved but I didn’t know much about it. I began to do some research and found that there wasn’t really a definitive book about it so I contacted Scholastic and asked if they would be interested in me writing a children’s book for the My New Zealand Stories series which takes real events and tells them through the eyes of a fictional character in diary form. They said they would really like this so I spent all of 2015 researching and writing. STILL CREATING: When she is not teaching English at Lincoln What age group is it for?

What led you to do the degree in Maori? I started learning Maori six years ago and in 2014 I was awarded a Teach NZ scholarship to go to university for a year and then two of my novels sold internationally so I got quite a good advance and I also got a grant to write the Bastion Point story, so I resigned from my teaching position in Dunedin to concentrate on finishing my degree and doing that writing. Do you have Maori in your family background? I cannot definitively identify my whakapapa except to say that somebody slept with somebody and nobody is talking about it. I’m also as much Scottish and Irish and German and English, so like most New Zealanders I’m a mongrel. When did you first start writing? I wrote very bad poetry at university in the 1980s but it wasn’t really until I became a drama teacher and I found the plays were very male centric and I was teaching at an all girls school that

I began to write my own plays and got the attention of a publisher. I began writing a novel in 1996 while I was on maternity leave, my first novel was published in 1997. Does writing a less male centric play just mean adding more female characters or is there more to it? I thought I was asking too much of my senior girls to try and be a 45-year-old man who had suicidal thoughts. I wrote plays that were current and I wrote a couple of books of plays where it didn’t matter what sex you were, it was really about the action and those have always been really popular in the classroom because you can change the ethnicity and the gender of the character. Did you just start teaching again this year? Yes, I had two years off but I missed teaching very much. We moved from Dunedin to Lincoln a year ago and I had remembered visiting Lincoln High School as a writer a few years ago. I really liked the feel of the place, a job came up and I got it.

events and difficult upbringing What is the earliest thing you can remember writing? The Purple Spotted People Eater. I wrote that when I was 10-yearsold. It was a rhyming poem and it was hilarious to myself. I remember my mother reading it out at parties and then it got lost so I don’t know what happened to it but it was about a monster who ate people. My first significant piece of writing that I remember was a piece that I did when I was in year 12 at Hurunui College and my English teacher entered it in a competition and it won and that was the moment when I thought I could be a real writer – it was a wonderful affirming thing. Where do you get most of your ideas from these days? Things that I see, things that I read, conversations that I overhear, a lot of my stories come about from a desire to rewrite life and make it how I want it to be or how I think it should go. Ideas don’t come from me, they stalk me, they hide in my shower or creep into my bedroom in the middle of the night just when I am about to fall asleep. Some people are good at sport or singing, my brain seems to be a never-ending pool of story and characters and possibility. Writers are consumers of life and because we do that it triggers stuff in our heads and

then we go ‘I wonder what would happen if . . ?’ This new book I am writing at the moment starts with the question ‘what would you do if you found a mermaid washed up on a beach?’ It’s called Charlie Tangaroa and the Creature From the Sea and it’s about a one-legged 13-year-old Maori boy who is the only one able to stop everything being destroyed by a warring family of Maori gods. You had a difficult childhood, with your father having alcohol problems and moving around a lot with your mum and stepfather. How has that influenced your writing?

I think it’s one of the motivators as to why I write. When I first started writing it was to tell people what it was like because I felt as a child I was never listened to and our needs and priorities as children were always at the bottom of the heap. There was a lot of suffering, poverty and abuse. I didn’t have anything to do with my dad after he left when I was three, I met him a bit when I was a teenager which was disastrous. But I think the way it shaped me is that I have been given this talent of using words to make a difference in the world and also I had amazing teachers who looked past my bad behaviour

and hung in there with me. Because of them I was able to finish my schooling, get a degree, go on and do what I am doing now. I wanted to be a teacher since primary school because I wanted to be that person for other kids that my teachers were for me. It would have been nice not to have a life like that but it has made me perhaps more sympathetic, more determined, maybe stronger. By 1980, when you would have been about 14 or 15, you had lived in 12 different houses and gone to seven different schools. Why was the family moving around so much and how did you find that?

I hated it. Now that I look back on it I can just see a lot of really bad decisions made. Is it true you put yourself into foster care? I had moved down to live with my dad which lasted about a month, so at 15, while staying with my uncle and aunt, I rang Social Welfare and I said: ‘My dad has kicked me out of home, I don’t want to go back to Whangarei, is there anything you can do to help me finish school? I really love my new school.’ They said: ‘Yes, if you can find someone to take care of you, we will pay for everything.’ So for the first time in my life, I got a uniform, I got to go on school trips, I got stationery, I got fed, I got all the things that normal kids could have because the state paid for it, so I have never worried about paying my taxes because somebody’s taxes helped me finish school and get to be where I am today. In 2002 you sat the bursary English exam after a challenge from your students because you hadn’t done it before. What was that experience like? It was hard, because I really had to study. One of the girls in my class got a better mark in an essay than me which I was most distressed about!

News Mentor gets top award

Fashion A ROLLESTON man has been named New Zealand Defence Force Volunteer of the Year for his charitable work in Canterbury and Vanuatu. Recently retired army Major Chris Allan and wife Pam founded the Joshua Foundation in 2005. The Christian-based organisation aims to help young people around Canterbury address self-destructive behaviour and negative attitudes, build self esteem and achieve their dreams. Last year, Mr Allan mentored several young people to achieve gold, silver and bronze Duke of Edinburgh Awards including working with the Youth Offenders Unit at Paparua Prison. Over the last four years, the Allan family has travelled to Vanuatu to work with villagers. Mr Allan was recently in Vanuatu setting up donated computers, painting local schools and developing a library for one of the local villages. After having his award presented at a ceremony at Burnham Military Camp last week, Mr Allan said it was humbling to be recognised. “I look around me within the Defence Force and observe my fellow officers and soldiers

Defence director of public affairs Trudy Warrender said many Defence Force personnel joined out of a strong sense of service and social responsibility and the award recognised the community work they undertook in their own time.

Alexander slams Govt Easter trading policy „„ By Tom Doudney DISTRICT COUNCILLOR Mark Alexander has slammed the Government for throwing local authorities a “hospital pass” when it allowed them to come up with their own Easter trading policy. The Government opted not to make any national changes to Easter trading laws, instead opting to give councils the power to make their own policies with its Shop Trading Hours Amendment Act 2016. Cr Alexander (right) said the Government had set councils up to fail because whatever policy was put forward was bound to be appealed which would cost “a lot of money.” On Wednesday, the district council voted unanimously to approve consulting the community on whether to allow trading on Easter Sunday, and if so in which locations. The views of people and businesses will inform a report setting out options for the district council to consider in September. Cr Alexander said his informal discussions with businesses and members of the public in his

Selwyn Central ward had indicated that both groups were split about 50/50 between those who wanted the rules around Easter trading relaxed and those who didn’t. He compared it to when the Government had tasked councils with drawing up their own Local Alcohol policies. In that case, he said, the district council had produced a policy which reflected calls for more restrictions on trading hours and locations but it had been appealed by businesses selling alcohol. “All I can guarantee out of this is we are going to annoy about half the community with whatever decision we make and therefore I think we are on a hiding to nothing,” Cr Alexander said. “Thanks government, you’ve given us a hospital pass again, we are going to get a hammering whichever way we go, it will be appealed, it’s going to cost us a lot of money.”

Your Local Views Peter Hill, of Dunsandel, writes in response to recent criticism from Selwyn residents over the $6.26 million district council loan to the Central Plains Water scheme, which was recently paid back. Mr Hill previously opposed the loan as a district councillor.

News

Fashion I too am pleased that Central Plains Water Ltd has paid back the Selwyn District Council loan. However, the moral justification for a large unsecured loan of ratepayers’ money to a private company is not possible, even based on the unproven trickledown theory and supposed environmental benefits. The whole ethical dilemma of using a public resource (water) for private gain is vexed, let alone when our own council uses our money to enable huge escalation

of that use. So far the largest beneficiary of our water has been the dairy industry and we have been repaid for allowing that with depleted and polluted aquifers, rivers and lakes. This looks set to increase with little sign that the offending industry will, even if it were able, pick up the tab for fixing these problems. The taking of alpine water is no panacea as it will just lead to that resource being further depleted with the pollution issues continuing and escalating unabated. As with the loan repayment, I will be very pleased when community-wide financial benefits from this irrigation scheme are shown to occur and environmental harm is remedied. I fear that the nature of the beast is such that it would be folly to wait for that particular bus. Until (and if) that occurs this industry and its supporters remain the private beneficiaries as the community keeps paying.

District council chief executive David Ward – THe In Brief item printed in the Selwyn Times on January 24 (page 9, Subdivision application) has unfortunately created some confusion amongst local residents about the nature of the application which we would like to take the opportunity to

clarify. The district council has received a proposal relating to a property on Hudsons Rd, near Lincoln, where the applicant is seeking to create three lots, which are 4-5ha in area with associated open space consent notices on adjoining properties to retain rural density. It is not a residential or large

scale subdivision proposal. The application will be heard on February 23 and a decision on the application released some time after that date. HAVE YOUR SAY: If you have a view on a local issue you would like to express, email tom.doudney@ starmedia.kiwi

Ellesmere College’s head students introduce themselves Head boy Freddie Gash

SCHOOLS Head girl Jessica Dunlop I have been part of the Ellesmere College family since 2011 when I started as a wide-eyed year 7 student. Before this I spent my early childhood on a small farm in Oxford but moved to Leeston in 2008 where I attended Leeston Consolidated School. I like to spend my time hanging out with friends or going to the gym. I also enjoy playing the piano and I’m passionate about science – something I want to pursue when I leave school. I am really honoured to be head girl at Ellesmere College, it is an achievement I am really proud of, along with being awarded top academic prize for year 12 last year. This year I want to make the most of any opportunities that come my way and also create more opportunities for aspiring leaders in our community. I always believe that in a world where you can be anything, the most important thing is to be kind.

Ellesmere College has been a great place for me to learn, and this year I am excited about being able to give back to the school in my role of head boy. I moved to New Zealand from the United Kingdom seven years ago, and since I arrived at the college as a wide-eyed little year 9 student I wanted to get the most out of school. I am proud of my achievements last year, including achieving level 2 NCEA with excellence and getting a gold service award. I am especially proud of our experiences with our band, The Wednesday Effect, and my experiences with kapa haka. Out of school, I have enjoyed mountain biking, riding my horse, sailing and photography.  This year I look forward to getting involved in as much as possible both in and out of school. I look forward to developing emphasis on the arts, and building on the great work of previous head students. After school I plan to study music, possibly with the endeavour of teaching. I hope to make the most of my final year at school – “life is like a sewer – what you get out of it depends on what you put into it!” (Tom Lehrer)

Deputy head girl Ella McClure

Deputy head boy Jack Dudley

From starting at Leeston Consolidated School to embarking on my final year at Ellesmere College, it has been an unforgettable journey. The opportunities on offer at school have been a big part of this journey. Last year I joined the stage challenge crew where we performed at Horncastle Arena, signed up to a rather gruelling early morning character-building programme known as Cactus, helped raise money for Syrian refugees by organising the 40-Hour Famine and was able to spend time with younger students during peer tutoring sessions. I am currently the St John Youth national cadet of the year, and am looking forward to starting my third term as a councillor on the Selwyn Youth Council. In 2017 I am going to focus on increasing positive youth participation within the school, to make sure students’ voices are not only heard, but acted on. In the future I would like to pursue a career in health, and am looking at heading down to Otago University next year. Remember what you get out of school depends on what you put into it, so be involved, aim high, get outside of your comfort zone and most importantly have fun.

I was born in Christchurch and have lived all my 17 years in Lakeside on a small lifestyle property. I attended Leeston Consolidated School and then went on to Ellesmere College. I have so many interests. I like to design and create. I enjoy sports, and play first XV rugby for the school, I also enjoy sailing and anything relating to the sea, camping and being with my mates. I have achieved everything I set out to achieve in my time at school. Being top in mechanical engineering technology for the past two years, top in design and visual communication in level 2, Silver Service Award and our senior drama class performed at The Court Theatre for the Shakespeare festival. My dreams for 2017 are to finish the year having achieved to my highest potential, while having fun and making the most of my final year as a deputy head student at Ellesmere College. Beyond school, I am hoping to be accepted into the Royal New Zealand Navy as a marine engineer officer and am currently going through the application process for 2018. I would say to anyone now coming up through the school system, to stick with what you enjoy and are good at, develop it further, and back yourself.

The Mistletoe Track is a DOC scenic walk nestled in the Craigieburn Valley. This peaceful spot offers opportunities to spot native birds like rifleman, bellbird, tomtit and grey warbler and enjoy views of the mountains. The track begins with a sheltered, flat walk through forest land crossing Cave stream before beginning a gradual climb to grassy terraces and Mountain beech forest. The peak of the track meets up with Lyndon Saddle, but you can choose to climb higher to get a clearer view of the mountains for a great photo opportunity. This track is used by mountain bikes for the first 5 minutes to the junction with Sidle 73 Track. The main part of Mistletoe Track is not suitable for mountain bikes. After your walk, you can enjoy lunch or a snack at the scenic Craigieburn Picnic area, where toilets are also provided. Watch out for wasps in the summer months.

Time/Distance: 3 hours return Difficulty: Medium. Not suitable for buggies. Dogs are permitted if on leash. How to get there: The track starts at the Craigieburn picnic shelter which is signposted from SH73. It is located about 1 hour twenty minutes from Rolleston or around an hour from Darfield.

Patterson’s century puts Lincoln in the box seat AN UNBEATEN 121 from Arthur Patterson has put Lincoln firmly in the box seat in their two-day match against Oxford, which began at Lincoln Domain on Saturday. Lincoln declared at 232/4 after 55 overs, with Patterson ably supported by his brother, Hugh, who hit 56. The two spent more than an hour together in the middle before Hugh Patterson was removed. Oxford’s best bowler was Luke Waghorn, taking 2/70. In response, Oxford limped to 84/7 before declaring still 148 runs behind, in the hopes of taking some quick wickets late in the day. Hugh Patterson starred with the ball, taking 4/12. Lincoln batted for seven further overs and were 7/1 in their second innings at the close of play. •South Malvern were firmly on the back foot after batting first against Sefton and being bundled out for 121 in 35.3 overs. Sefton bowler Barry Cross ripped the top order apart taking five of the top six batsmen, finishing with 5/24 from eight overs. A club record partnership of 186 for the second wicket between Tim Harrison

and Lance Taylor, eclipsing the 148 of Cory James and Nigel Granger in 2004, helped Sefton reply with a monstrous total. Taylor and Harrison both posted centuries. Sefton declared at the end of the day’s play at 347/5, after just 55 overs, leaving South Malvern 226 runs in arrears. •At Weedons, visitors Southbrook won the toss and chose to bat first on a flat track. But plans of a big score were soon erased as they were shot out for a measly 80. In reply, Weedons racked up 250, with Kane Meyerhoff cracking a tonne, to put them in the box seat for an outright victory. At stumps, Southbrook were 74/2, with Tom Rodden on 37 not out and Darryn Boyle unbeaten on 15. •Greendale and Leeston-Southbridge are locked in a tight tussle, with the combined side sneaking first innings points. Greendale batted first and were all out for 148, with Blair Chapman again topscoring with 77. An unbeaten 65 by Tim Field helped Leeston-Southbridge steal first innings spoils, all out for 149.

Keegan leading as Ruapuna race looms FEW PUNDITS would be totally surprised that former national modified champion Luke Keegan is among the pacesetters in this Hydraulink War of the Wings Sprintcar Series. But the 36-year-old from Christchurch is slightly surprised that he goes into the last three rounds as the series points leader in spite of having not yet won a feature race. He is keen notch up his first win at Ruapuna Speedway this Saturday night when the fifth round is contested. “Winning a feature is the aim of the game but I’m not focusing on that too hard,” Keegan said. “We’re putting more energy into getting some more speed out of the car. I’ve still got a bit to learn but we’re getting there.” Keegan, who is in his first season of racing sprintcars started his career at Ruapuna in the late 1990s and went on to racing V8 modifieds at Woodford Glen, where he was one of their most successful racers on the national stage.

Halswell keep top sport on cricket table

THE HALSWELL cricket side have dismantled Merivale-Papanui, winning their two-day match by an innings and five runs to retain first place in the competition. Merivale-Papanui, who came into the match sitting third on the table, had won the toss and elected to bat first at Edgar MacIntosh Park. However, the Halswell opening bowlers dominated from the start, dismissing Merivale-Papanui for just 85, with Matt Parr, Dayle Eathorne and Leighton Johnston all taking three wickets each. In reply, Halswell batted with far more discipline before declaring at 184/9. James Pearson top scored with 55, while Eathorne got 39 and Matt McLintock 38. Merivale-Papanui survived 15 minutes to be 13 without loss at stumps on the first day. However, day two, played on Saturday, saw more superb bowling from the Halswell bowlers. Although Merivale-Papanui were 40 without loss at one stage, it was only a brief reprieve.

Bowls champion of champions „„ By Karolyn Boon DUNSANDEL’S Chris Dalzell and Leeston’s Anne Chapman have gone from champions to champions of champions. To earn a Champion of Champions title in the Ellesmere bowls sub centre you have to win your club championship and then take on the winners from other clubs in the area. For the juniors, this is often the first real test for them and, although there are only seven clubs in Ellesmere, there have often been many games played and won at club level to get to be a champion. You are a junior bowler for the first five years in a club. It was a cracker of a day for the juniors’ event, held at Southbridge, which will host all Champion of Champions events this year. In the men’s competition, there were four club champions which entered and in the first game, Southbridge’s Jo Smith played Keith Hanham from Akaroa. It was a slow start for Smith who was down 1-10 and 4-15 before relaxing and settling into the game only to go down 19-21. In the other game, Dalzell had a comfortable win over first-year bowler Ken Chapman, of Leeston, 21-8.

The final was then between Dalzell and Hanham, a second year bowler. Dalzell, a finalist in last year’s championships, displayed his four years’ experience on the green. That didn’t stop Hanham from pushing him, as the shot changed four times with excellent draw bowls, but it was Dalzell’s driving ability that won that end. Dalzell won 21-6. This may have been the first year that two families played each other in the men’s and women’s competitions, which featured the Dalzell siblings and husband and wife Anne and Ken Chapman. Alana Dalzell, of Dunsandel, was a contender in the women’s match coming up against Chapman, of Leeston. Dalzell was slow to start in what was to be a spectacle of a game. Dalzell clawed her way into the game and, like Smith in the men’s, settled into things. However, it was Chapman with a year’s experience over Dalzell that managed to win it, 21-20. Chapman played Lincoln’s Pam Greenside in the final, which was a little one-sided one a stage, at 11-4 to Chapman. Greenside just kept drawing to pick up a four and bring it to 12-10, but two ends later, Chapman picked up a four and then a three to close the game out and win 21-13.

HOCKEY OPEN DAY The new Waikirikiri Sports Club will hold an open day at Rolleston’s Foster Park on Sunday. It has been set up to foster hockey in eastern Selwyn, but the intention is for the club to eventually include other sports which are currently not widely available in Selwyn. Junior hockey teams up to under-13 level are expected to be entered into this year’s Canterbury Hockey winter competition.

ON TOP: Anne Chapman and Chris Dalzell won the Ellesmere juniors’ Champion of Champions titles.

Gardening You can’t beat the taste of beetroot Want to grow great beets? Rachel Vogan tells what you need to know AS FAR as crops go, beetroot is a bit of a super hero in my book. It is one of the few vegetables that I can eat raw, boiled, steamed, roasted, pickled or added into a juice. The leaves also regularly feature in my salads, slaws and sammies. Even better, it happily grows all year round, so I am never without it in the garden. It’s a good-looking vegetable, too; the leaves look attractive no matter what time of year, and you can’t say that of many veges. I call it ‘Mr Versatility’. WHEN AND WHERE A sunny spot is best, although beetroot will cope with a couple of hours of shade. Soil-wise, all root crops like beetroot, carrot, parsnip, radish and salsify require a loose, open soil (‘friable’ is the technical term), so dig it over until the texture looks like breadcrumbs. If you are planting into containers, use vegetable potting mix. This stuff is great, as it is loose and easy for the roots to wriggle and anchor themselves into. TOP CROP FOR POTS Beetroot grows happily in pots and containers. The trick to getting the best results is to use the best potting

mix to start with. As a crop, they take about three months to mature, and the soil needs to have plenty of nutrients for it to perform. Tubs should be 2030cm deep, and avoid cramming too many plants into the pot – all this will do is force more top growth, and limit the size of the root. SEED VERSUS SEEDLINGS The choice is yours, especially at this time of year. The seeds are a good size and easy to handle in your fingers; sow in rows of finely-cultivated soil about 1cm deep. The seedlings will appear in a few weeks, and once they are fingerlength, thin them out to allow 5-10cm between each plant. Seeds can be sown in spring, summer and autumn. Avoid winter sowing as they take a long time to germinate when the ground is cold. Seedlings can be planted all year round. Look for the smaller seedlings, as these are less likely to have as much root disturbance when you tease them apart. Remember beetroot is a root crop, and most root crops do not handle transplanting that well. Soak the punnets in a bucket of seaweed tonic before planting out, as this will allow the roots to easily tease themselves apart.

Using a stick or dibber, poke holes into the ground to allow the entire root to go straight into the soil. GROWING AND HARVESTING Start harvesting by pulling alternate roots, this spreads the harvest, and remaining plants left in the soil have room to get bigger in size. The roots develop slightly above ground level, so avoid covering them with soil. WHICH ONES TO GROW •  ‘Globe’, true to its name, is round, dark-red in colour, and is popular for bottling when small. •  ‘Burpees Golden Globe’ is a pretty pale-yellow, golden-coloured beetroot, best eaten when between golf-ball and tennis-ball size. •  ‘Baby Beet’ is a small variety with good colour and flavour. It matures quickly and pulling can commence six to seven weeks after sowing. •  ‘Monorubra’ has a tapered long root ideal for slicing, and is quickgrowing. •  ‘Cylindra’, as its name suggests, has a cylindrical shape that makes it excellent for slicing. •  ‘Chioggia’, notable for its pretty red and white concentric markings, is a sweet, round beet.

Look after roses during hot weather DEADHEADING Deadheading is an easy job. By doing it on a regular basis, it speeds up the repeat flowering and makes for a tidier plant. Either remove the dead flower head or cut the stem down to the first or second set of leaves. When you are doing this, also consider the overall shape of the plant and trim longer branches back to encourage a bushier plant and to even up the growth habit.

It’s hot out there! Rachel Vogan has tips to keep your roses performing at their best in summer conditions ROSES JUST say: “Look at me!”, and why wouldn’t you look at them? Coming in a tapestry of shapes, colours and sizes, it shouldn’t be any surprise they are the world’s most popular flower. One of the best things about roses is they have a very generous spirit and, even better, a forgiving nature. They just want to please, so if you don’t have the time or inclination to do anything with your roses at the moment, don’t panic, they are still going to grow – but if you do spend some time and energy on them, the rewards will speak for themselves. WATERING To keep roses at their best water deeply and avoid getting any water on the flowers or foliage. I know this sounds pedantic, but if you want a flawless flower that’s the best tip I can give you. Drop the hose nozzle down onto the ground and enjoy the plant’s

Plunge them straight into a bucket of beauty for 10 or 20 seconds, then MULCHING & FEEDING drench of seaweed tonic or liquid water to the neck of the bloom. move on to the next plant.

Expert to run dogtraining workshop Participants attending the dog-training workshop being held in Darfield this Friday will be taught how to train their sheepdogs by an expert in the field – top New Zealand dog triallist Lloyd Smith. Organised by Beef+Lamb New Zealand and designed to train farmers to train their dogs, these workshops are part of a suite of workshops held throughout New Zealand, and are run whenever and wherever there is a demand. Mr Smith has been providing the training for around eight years, and says he took it up to help young shepherds and farmers by offering the type of training he didn’t have when he started out in the farming sector. “I didn’t have much idea when I started but I was keen to learn how to work around sheep,” he says. Having mastered the skill of dog handling, and gone on to become a highly successful dog trial competitor, Mr Smith is passing on the benefit of his experience and expertise. “There’s not a lot of resources out there to teach people how to train their dogs, but it’s much better for the dogs’ welfare to be trained. There are a lot of potentially great dogs that get ruined and unfortunately even

dogs, as they all have different characteristics. As there is a lot of information to take in over one afternoon, Lloyd Smith’s book and DVD, Pup Pen to Paddock, will be available for purchase so participants can have them to refer to and continue their training on their farm. The workshop is being held at Shelterdale Farm, 1207 Rockwood Road, Darfield on Friday, February 17 starting at 1.30pm and finishing at 6pm with a light barbecue. Tea and coffee will be supplied.

will take participants through a step-by-step demonstration process, changing the dogs accordingly. He says it is important to get bad habits out of a dog right from the start, but that it is also important for owners to be flexible with their

New protein ingredient boosts company’s sports nutrition market In what is believed to be a world first, Fonterra’s dairy ingredients business NZMP has developed a new protein ingredient that delivers at least 10 per cent more protein than other standard whey protein offerings. Fonterra lead technologist, Neil Fraser says while some protein ingredients have traditionally been formulated from cheese whey, NZMP has used lactic casein whey to make the protein ingredient. Designed for use in sports drinks and energy bars, the new protein ingredient is faster acting, and lower in fat, sugar and carbohydrates than other similar protein products. “People are taking more interest in their diet and health, which means as the awareness of the benefits of protein goes more mainstream, sports nutrition is no longer just for exercise fanatics,” Mr Fraser says.

Protein is an important part in everyone’s diet. It is needed for growth and maintenance of all cells in the body, especially muscles.

“The NZMP protein has been developed and introduced to market in less than a year through the collaboration of Fonterra’s Research and Development Centre and Operations teams. It is a good example of getting more value out of our farmers’ milk by producing higher-value products,” Mr Fraser says. The United States leads the way in the protein boom in sports nutrition and the launch of the NZMP SureProtein™ ingredient has been quickly followed by orders from one of the biggest producers of sports nutrition drinks in the US. The Japanese are also keen. Trials of the new product there are resulting in customers looking to the innovative ingredient to provide them with the protein benefits and competitive edge they are seeking in their fast-growing sports nutrition market.

“Protein is an important part in everyone’s diet. It is needed for growth and maintenance of all cells in the body, especially muscles. Proteins are believed to support athletic performance, but are also important for healthy ageing, especially when it comes to maintaining muscle strength and function as we get older.” NZMP’s range of dairy protein ingredients are marketed under the NZMP SureProtein™ brand.

Presenting Your Home For Sale? Street Appeal The exterior of your home is the first thing buyers will see, so the property needs to look well kept and inviting. Take a look at your place from the street and see it through a buyer’s eyes! So… cut the lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add some garden lights and place a nice pot or plant by the front door. Ensure the house exterior is cleaned or freshened with new paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths and fences, put stylish new numbers on the house and perhaps buy a funky new letterbox! Make an Entrance Even if your entrance or hallway is small you can still give it some wow! A large mirror adds light and makes an entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers, candles or a stylish piece of art create an inviting first impression. Ensure floors are clean whether timber, tiles or carpet. Create Space Light, air and space are 3 key factors in presenting a home to best advantage. Open up curtains and windows and use lamps and light fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange furniture to maximize space and remove items that make the room appear cramped. Fresh Feel Freshen rooms with new paint if necessary but aim for neutral tones which are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or bedspread and always make the bed!

Clean Clean Clean Cleaning is a mandatory part of selling your home: have carpets, rugs and upholstery commercially cleaned and sanitized, clean drapes and blinds to look like new, polish glass and furniture, wash down all surfaces and fittings in bathroom and kitchen, clean all light fittings, wash windows inside and out, deodorize your home to eliminate any odours from pets, cooking or smoke. Outdoor Spaces Even a small patio, deck or terrace can be enhanced with a café table and chairs. Add some colourful accessories – placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants and you have an extra living area. If space is not limited, hang a hammock, string some outdoor lights, position a garden sculpture or create a water feature that buyers will love. Hire a Handyman Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or appliances that don’t work are a turn-off for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace things yourself, then hire a handyman to make sure everything in your home works as it should. Finish it First! Buyers want to see a finished home, not one that’s still being fixed! So finish everything before you list your home for sale then launch it onto the market when it looks its absolute best – you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Clear out Clutter Storage space sells but clutter complicates! Clean out your cupboards, shelves and garage and get rid of unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up and reduce the number of photos, books, nic-nacs on display, they distract buyers too! Beautify the Bathroom Replace or re-surface fittings if necessary, but otherwise you can simply beautify your bathroom with thorough and fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels, a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush green plants. Invest in a new shower curtain or laundry hamper and maybe a sleek modern towel rail.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District

The little town that grew Twelve years ago, Matson and Allan set up a base in the small rural town of Leeston. At that time, few people moved into the area with it noted that it was mostly locals who were buying and selling properties there. This situation changed almost overnight, after the Christchurch earthquakes struck and the town began to grow. Leeston was established as a rural service town in 1864. Agriculture was significant in the area with the Southbridge branch railway line running through the town and the Selwyn District Council’s headquarters based there until they were relocated to Rolleston. The 2006 census recorded Leeston’s population at 1,299. This figure increased by 15.9% to 1,506 by the 2013 census. At the beginning of July last year, the Selwyn District Council estimated the population to be 2,250. Local real estate agent, Stephan Knowler estimates that 300 new

dwellings have been added to Leeston’s housing stock over the last decade with a good flow of people moving there from as far away as Auckland, with timely property development assisting Leeston’s growth. At the time of the earthquakes, two sub-divisions by two separate developers, already had consent and the sections were snapped up by dislocated Christchurch people. The Lim family who had developed the completed Ambrose Estate had purchased another ten hectares on the outskirts of Leeston. Sections in stage one of this new Monticello sub-division priced at $85,000 had moved fairly slowly. “When the September 2010 earthquake struck, the developers were

Leeston has grown substantially in the last decade.

Monticello sub-division moved slowly until the September 2010 earthquake.

in the envious position of having a subdivision with sections available. It went from paddock to all 100 sections sold and almost completely built on within a few years,” explains Stephan. At the time, Horncastle Homes also owned the land for the Millbridge estate, on the edge of Leeston. This already had consent so they instantly opened it up with immediate sales. This sub-division too is now completely sold out and developed. There were also two rural residential developments, such as Ellesmere Country Park that had 5,000 square metre lots (zoned living two). These have all sold. Last year, Matson and Allan sold all forty sections in just eight months, in Horncastle Homes’ Birdlings Crossing, which runs off Millbridge. Many of the old families still live in the area, however the town is now more cosmopolitan and its facilities have been increasing with a larger supermarket constructed and a new hotel soon to be completed. “People bring change and change brings people,” adds Stephan and it will indeed be interesting to see how the town changes in the future. Stephan says there are currently no more sections to sell with little developer interest at the present time. It is therefore unlikely that Leeston will

It’s a good place to live,” says Stephan Knowler who believes that with no sections available, the town’s property values may well strengthen.
