Frantic mum hunts for ashes „„ By Julia Evans THE DESPERATE mum searching for her son’s stolen ashes has been going to pawn shops in a bid to find clues as to who took them. Raewyn Wahnig went to The Pawn Shop on Ferry Rd yesterday in case the person who burgled their house on Thursday had tried to sell jewellery which was also taken. Stillborn son Thomas James’ ashes were stolen in the burglary in Buckleys Rd, Linwood, Raewyn at 3.50pm on Wahnig Thursday. She is desperate to get them back, and is hoping the offender may have the heart to let her or someone else know where they have discarded them – or even return the ashes. Mrs Wahnig said the burglar probably thought the ashes were drugs. Police don’t appear to have any leads. • Turn to page 4 •Editor’s plea to burglar, page 2

Thursday March 2 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

IF YOU are the person who broke into a Buckleys Rd house in Linwood last week, please read on. The box you took had ashes in it – not drugs as you would have now realised. There’s a good chance you’ve thrown it away. The contents of that box are irreplaceable – they’re Raewyn and Edgar Wahnig’s stillborn son. The jewellery that was taken has probably paid off a debt or been fenced somewhere. So be it. Over the years, I’ve known a lot of people on the wrong side of the law. Many of them are pretty good people underneath. They could have forged useful lives in sport, art or business if it wasn’t for a few weaknesses or two, if you get my drift. So if you’ve heard or know where the ashes are, give me a call on 021 359 426 and I’ll get the ashes back to the family. – Barry Clarke

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the Lyttelton road tunnel opened, the longest in the country, on February 27, 1964. On February 28, 1853, the provincial boundary of Westland (then called West Canterbury) was included as part of Canterbury. On February 28, 1967, the Canterbury cricket team defeated the visiting Australians, the first time any New Zealand team had done so. On February 28, 1981, President of the European Parliament Simone Veil visited the city. On February 28, 1986, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the city. On March 1, 1865, Godley Head lighthouse began operating. On March 1, 1930, the Majestic Theatre opened – the city’s first steel frame building. On March 2, 1970, amid mounting controversy, the city council began construction of a road deviation through Hagley Park. The work was stopped by March 7 for legal reasons, and the project was eventually scrapped. March 3, 1862, marked the first meeting of the Christchurch Municipal Council, which later became the city council.

News Police have clues over horse attack case „„ By Andrew King POLICE MAY be closer to identifying the people responsible for a horrific attack on three horses in Burwood. Gus, a seven-year-old standardbred, had to be shot by a police officer after he was found badly wounded at about 5am on February 18. Passersby called police to report two men were chasing

Gus and two other horses in the paddock. But police believe there could have been a larger group responsible for the death of Gus and the injuries to the two other horses, Charlie and Steve. The two men seen in the paddock were spoken to, but told police they were trying to help the badly wounded animal after walking home from a nearby party.

Owner Karina Romeyn said police had indicated to her a larger group was involved. “I think there was a few of them walking back who started to chase them around. But when it turned bad only two stayed behind to help Gus,” she said. Anyone with information can phone 363 7400 or report anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

FRIENDS: Karina Romeyn and Gus.

Gemma takes on City2Surf knee injury sustained after taking part in the Coast to Coast run may “slow her down a little bit.” Gemma said it will be her first time running in the iconic event and she welcomed others to join her. “You won’t regret it. That sense of achievement afterwards and that community feel is the perfect opportunity and a great way to spend a Sunday.” Aviva marketing and funding manager Julie McCloy said the City2Surf was part of a 12-week wellness challenge staff were doing to promote physical wellbeing. “For us working in family and sexual violence, we want to help people achieve well-being.” City2Surf event manager Vanessa Fleming said they were expecting more than 12,000 people to take part this year. “It’s amazing for Aviva to have someone like Gemma. She’s just an ordinary Kiwi girl supporting the charity and raising awareness for Aviva, which helps families live free of violence.” She said the 43rd event was all about giving it a go, whether it be walking, jogging or running.

In Brief STATE OF EMERGENCY EXPIRES The state of emergency which gave extra powers to those fighting the fires last month expired yesterday. Mayor Lianne Dalziel said 99 per cent of the fire perimeter was contained and controlled, so the focus would turn to recovery. The authorities involved will still have transitional powers for 28 days, which allows them to manage things like access to the remaining hot spots, and make quick decisions if there is a flare-up. SANTA STAYS PUT A campaign to try and return a giant Santa to its former home has been shelved. Last year, actor Jason Reekers was trying to get the 6m tall, fibreglass Santa – which used to sit on Armagh St’s Hay’s building and later Farmers – back to Christchurch. It had been in Levin for about 15 years after Farmers rebuilt its premises in 1996. But Mr Reekers said the campaign became complicated because Santa had become wellloved in his new home. He said he may look at starting a campaign to built a new Santa for the city in the future instead. FIREFIGHTER DONATION A donation of $25,000 has been made to Canterbury firefighters following their efforts to bring the Port Hills fire under control. The money, which has been donated by Smiths City, will fund an annual family day event for both Selwyn and Christchurch rural and urban firefighters.

„„ By Bridget Rutherford GEMMA MCCAW has taken on the Coast to Coast run, endurance races and played more than 200 internationals for the Black Sticks. And, of course, after her much publicised recent wedding, she and husband, rugby great Richie McCaw, kick-started their Central Otago honeymoon with a 20km run. But on March 19, she will be running for fun and charity in The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate. The former Black Sticks star and about 25 Aviva staff will run and walk the 6km and 14km events to raise awareness and money for the charity. City2Surf has chosen Aviva as its benefiting charity for this year’s event. Aviva provides family violence support. Gemma said Aviva, formerly known as Christchurch Women’s Refuge, was deserving,and the City2Surf was a great way to help. “To have those conversations about where people can go for help is important for any community.” She would not be racing to win in the 14km event because, for her, it was more about enjoying it.

For the past 18 months, Spark has been running a pilot programme with 36 bicycles across six stations, which proved popular.

MISSING: The empty box where Raewyn and Edgar Wahnig kept their stillborn son Thomas’ ashes.

Frantic mum searches for ashes • From page 1 Mrs Wahnig says police appear to have no leads. She doesn’t care about the jewellery, she just wants Thomas back. The Pawn Shop branch manager John Steenhart said it is doing all it can to help Mrs Wahnig and is working with the police. Mrs Wahnig and her husband Edgar couldn’t sleep at night, wondering where Thomas was. It feels like they were endlessly searching for a missing person.

Their biggest fear is Thomas has been dumped somewhere, and will never return home. “I know he’s just been thrown out but I keep telling myself that’s not what’s happened,” she said. Police are examining fingerprints taken from the house. A set that thought might lead to a suspect had been eliminated. Mrs Wahnig said she broke down in tears when the police told her.

Luck ready to rock Selwyn Sounds „„ By Bridget Rutherford IT IS two days out from the inaugural Selwyn Sounds concert, and Kiwi music heavyweight Jordan Luck says it’s going to be “stonking”. The Jordan Luck Band will feature in Saturday’s concert alongside Mi-Sex, Dragon, Jason Kerrison, Annie Crummer, Margaret Urlich, Debbie Harwood and Sharon O’Neill. It is expected to bring up to 10,000 people to Lincoln Domain. Luck, who was the front man of The Dance Exponents and The Exponents, said his band was really looking forward to playing, and listening to the other acts. “What a line-up, it’s going to be stonking.” Luck has been living in Little River, “drinking their coffee and eating their pies”. And it won’t be the first time he has performed in Lincoln. He said with The Exponents, he had played at about 10 university orientations.

Those heading along could expect to hear some originals such as Victoria and Why Does Love Do This To Me, as well as songs from his new album Not Only . . . But Also. “It won’t matter what the weather’s like, just give me hot music.” For tickets visit Ticketek website. • More on Selwyn Sounds, page 17

Givealittle recipient appeals court ruling „„ By Gabrielle Stuart NATALIE MARIE Green, 35, was given more than $10,000 in a public Givealittle campaign after her house burnt down two years ago. Two days later, she started a police chase from Hornby through the city, before crashing her car into a home on Centaurus Rd causing almost $70,000 of damage. On Tuesday she was in the High Court appealing an order to pay damages to her victims, on the grounds of family hardship. Her lawyer, Nick Rout, told the court she was unable to pay that amount. Both Green (above) and her husband are unemployed and on benefits, which add up to $729 per week, he said. “Her husband is the only one who can drive the family around, so there is no ability of either to work,” he said. He said the money from the Givealittle campaign had been spent replacing things damaged in the fire. He asked for the reparation amount to be reduced to $45 per week, which would add up to close to $12,000 over five years. Judge David Gendall reserved his decision. On February 4 last year, Green’s home in Hornby was damaged in a minor fire,

then completely burnt down after a suspected arson two days later. A Givealittle fundraising page was set up by a friend to help the family, who were not insured. Green was pregnant at the time with her third child. Her oldest child, who was nine at the time, has cerebral palsy. On February 8, the police were called after reports she was driving erratically and crashing her car into other vehicles in Hornby. The police chased her car for about 15min but abandoned the pursuit because of her erratic driving, shortly before she crashed in Hillsborough. Witnesses said she drove at more than 100km/h through residential streets and came close to hitting several children playing on the footpath. The damage she caused was estimated at $68,130. The Givealittle page was shut down shortly after the news came to light, but not before about $10,390 had been donated. About half of the money was refunded to donors, but the rest, about $5000, was given to Green. She was sentenced in court to seven and a half months home detention, and ordered to pay $150 per week in damages to the victims, which would add up to almost $40,000 over five years.

News Health performance: The real story „„ By Gabrielle Stuart CANTABRIANS’ access to non-emergency surgery is now the worst in the country – but health authorities appear to be trying to whitewash the falling numbers. The Canterbury District Health Board has failed to reach three out of six Government health targets, which are designed to track how well health boards are performing in crucial areas. Canterbury and South Canterbury DHBs were ranked worst in the country for elective surgeries – which includes everything but emergency surgery. But in statements after the figures were released last week, both Minister of Health Jonathan Coleman and the CDHB tried to paint the numbers as positive. Dr Coleman said the CDHB “continues to perform well” against the targets, and praised it for improvements in other areas. In a separate statement, CDHB chief executive David Meates said its performance had “remained strong”. He did not mention any of the three areas where the CDHB

Jonathan Coleman

David Meates

had failed to meet the targets, but praised the performance in the Emergency Department, cancer treatment and immunisations, where it met the targets. The Star asked Mr Meates

if he stood by his statement the CDHB’s performance had “remained strong”, given the failure to meet half the targets. He did not respond, but a CDHB spokeswoman instead sent a response from planning and funding general manager Carolyn Gullery. She said the doctors’ strikes and the disruption from the North Canterbury earthquake in November had “impacted our ability to meet elective health targets” last year. The CDHB planned to outsource some surgery because of

the shortfall, she said. “We have a plan in place, which includes outsourcing a number of procedures, therefore utilising the capacity that’s available in the private sector to support reaching target by the end of the financial year.” The CDHB hospital advisory committee is scheduled to get a report on the health targets – but not until April. The Star also asked Dr Coleman if he was taking the CDHB’s elective surgery issues seriously, and what discussions he had with the CDHB about the problem. But a spokeswoman for Dr Coleman said he would not answer the questions as he had “nothing further to add”. The elective surgery targets are set for each health board, based on their capacity. Canterbury’s target for the final six months of last year was 10,297 elective surgeries, but it had performed just 9782 by December – 515 fewer than planned. In the 2015/16 financial year the CDHB performed 21,039 elective surgeries – 565 more than its 20,474 target.

Donkeys safe and well after Port Hills fire SUE HALEY thought her donkeys, Stormy and Patchy, had perished in the Port Hills fire. When the fire roared towards her 11ha property at the top of Marley Hill she opened the paddock gates and had to leave the donkeys to fend for themselves after evacuating. For 10 days she did not know whether they had survived. But when she was allowed to return to her property of 20 years this week, the pair were on her front lawn. “I couldn’t believe my eyes,’’ she said. “Their hooves looked a bit blackened but they haven’t been injured in any way.  I thought they would be pretty distressed but they are looking good.’’ Tony Groome, who has been working for the Selwyn District Council helping landowners affected by the fires, was the first to find the donkeys and said they were chomping on dandelions and lavender when they were initially spotted. “They seemed very happy to see humans,’’ he said.

Plan to delay restorations

„„ By Bridget Rutherford WORK TO restore two of the city’s historic buildings could be pushed back. As part of its draft annual plan, the city council is proposing to defer the earthquake repairs of the Canterbury Provincial Council Chambers and the old Municipal Chambers. It wants to do so until there is greater certainty around restoration for both. City council capital delivery major facilities manager Alistair Pearson (right) said the city council currently spends between $20,000-$30,000 each year on maintenance and security for both. There was also an emergency repair budget of between $200,000 and $300,000 that had been set aside should an urgent need arise, he said. The first of five stages of repairs on the provincial chambers – restoring the timber buildings, the Durham St Safes and the Armagh St Tower – was due to begin this month.

HISTORY: The city council wants to delay repairs to the old Municipal Chambers (above) and Canterbury Provincial Council Chambers until there is greater certainty of their restoration. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

But Mr Pearson said the $8.6 million set aside to go towards that had been deferred. He said it was not known when work would begin on either chambers, or the cost for each. The deferral was a proposal at this stage, with the draft annual plan going out for public consultation on March 20, and

a final decision to be made in June, he said. The provincial chambers, on Durham St North, date back to the 1850s and are the only purpose-built provincial government buildings left in the country. The Municipal Chambers, also known as Our City – Otautahi, on the corner of

Enrolled nursing study fasttracks entry into career Aspiring nurses can fast-track their entry into the profession with Ara Institute of Canterbury’s Diploma in Enrolled Nursing. Graduate Sam O’Malley recently completed the 18 month programme and is now working as an Enrolled Nurse at Pukeko Blue. He previously worked at the mental health organisation as a support worker, but wanted to upskill. “I wanted to take on more responsibility and saw that I could help people more as a nurse. Enrolled nursing at Ara appealed because it was very hands on and took a short time to complete,” he says. Sam says that the best parts of the programme were the practical placements. He worked in five different organisations, ranging from retirement homes to hospitals, over the course of his study. “The placements were fantastic and covered a lot. Everything was really hands on.” The diploma also included theory classes during the week, which Sam says were a highlight because of the excellent tutors. “The tutors were fantastic. You could come to them with anything you felt uncomfortable with and they would help. I feel really well informed.” Sam was able to transition into his nursing role at Pukeko Blue as soon as he completed his study. He now contributes to care plans for many

Oxford Tce and Worcester Boulevard, is the first Queen Anne Arts and Craft style building in the country. Parts of it needs to be reconstructed, while other elements needed additional concrete and steel work. Christchurch Heritage Trust chairwoman Anna Crighton said the delay should be no longer than a year. Those buildings were the “jewels”, she said. “We are the last European settled country in the world and our early history is really, really important.” Dr Crighton said it would be better to use the maintenance money to put towards starting the restoration of both chambers. In September the city council told The Star a feasibility study for the Municipal Chambers repairs had been prepared. The project team had been asked to pursue further options to secure a more “cost effective” solution. Mr Pearson said city councillors were expected to receive a report in April which would include that level of detail.

High interest in new marina berths „„ By Bridget Rutherford THE NUMBER of berths in Lyttelton’s new marina has been increased due to high demand. Lyttelton Port of Christchurch carried out a registration of interest process for berths in its yet to be built Te Ana Marina and received too many registrations. Chief executive Peter Davie (right)said it had since increased the number of berths delivered in stage one to 170 – close to the number of registrations it received. The original stage one plans included about 130 berths. “We are close to finalising negotiations with our contractor and work will commence on the final design within a few months, starting with the fabrication of pontoons off site,” Mr Davie said. Te Ana would be a walk-on floating marina. Construction of stage one would begin this year. The plans include a promenade linking the marina to Lyttelton’s centre and with a walkway from Voelas Rd.

of the organisation’s residents. “I’m really glad I did the diploma. It’s been really beneficial for my career.” He says that being a mental health nurse is fulfilling and he never gets bored. “Every day is different, with different situations coming up and I like being the person that can help to solve those issues for people.” Sam believes that more young men should get into nursing careers and that the Diploma in Enrolled Nursing is a great way to enter the profession. “It’s a job that’s always going to be needed and it’s really rewarding. There is a huge need for more male nurses, particularly in mental health.” The Diploma in Enrolled Nursing at Ara is open for enrolment now, for a March start.

HERO: Squadron leader Johnny Checketts in a spitfire cockpit during World War 2 on October 20, 1943.

Ace fighter pilot’s spitfire engine lands at museum „„ By Tom Doudney AN AIRCRAFT engine, which lay buried in northern France for more than 70 years, has come halfway around the world to be delivered to the homeland of its pilot. The Rolls Royce Merlin engine, which belonged to an Mk.IXB spitfire flown by renowned Invercargill-born fighter ace Johnny Checketts, arrived at its new home at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand in Wigram last week. Checketts son, Chris Checketts, was Johnny Checketts with museum staff to meet it. The engine has a remarkable story to tell, stretching back to the height of World War 2. On September 6, 1943, Checketts and his fellow spitfire pilots of No. 485 (NZ) Squadron RAF took off on a mission to escort 72 RAF bombers to their target in France. They were intercepted and attacked by 20 German FW 190 fighters and, in the ensuing dogfight, Checketts’ spitfire was hit. There was an explosion and the cockpit filled with flames. Checketts was badly burned but managed to bail out, landing safely in a field, while his spitfire ploughed into the ground. He was safely hidden with a French family and his wounds treated. With help from the French Resistance, Checketts evaded capture for nearly two months and safely made it back to England. He passed away in Christchurch in 2006 after serving as a volunteer guide at the Air Force Museum for a number of years. In March 2015, French aviation enthusiast group Somme Aviation 39-45 uncovered the remains of Checketts’ spitfire, aided by the accurate memories of local man André Bonvarlet who, as a teenager, had witnessed the spitfire crash and had seen him bail out. The complete Merlin engine, together with numerous other aircraft parts, was excavated from beneath 3.5m of soil. Pierre Ben and his team then began the process of cleaning and restoring the engine, which was encrusted with clay and dirt. Mr Ben contacted Chris in Christchurch about the possibility of sending the engine to New Zealand. Thanks to support from Mainfreight, the engine was shipped here. Chris then donated it to the museum. Through the efforts of Mr Ben and his team, the museum now has an enduring tribute to one of the most famous Kiwi fighter aces of World War 2. Visitors will be able to view the engine when it goes on public display in late March. Chris said he felt “quite emotional” at encountering such a tangible link to his late father.

Drum beats over policing All is not well between Lyttelton residents and their local police. Residents want after hours and weekend local police on patrol and are taking matters into their own hands with satisfaction surveys. Even a former detective has laid a complaint about their performance. Gabrielle Stuart reports ON PAPER, Lyttelton’s policing situation looks very good. Just 122 crimes were reported in Lyttelton last year, only a fraction – 0.5 per cent – of the 20,625 crimes reported across Christchurch. Five police officers and a supervisor are assigned to the Lyttelton Police Station, and with crime dropping each year, that should be more than enough. But it is after dark the issues begin. The station is only staffed between 8am-5pm – after that, any calls are taken by police in Christchurch. Yet almost two thirds of the crimes recorded in Lyttelton over the past two years were committed after hours or on the weekends, when the police station was closed. That has left residents feeling increasingly unsafe. A number of vehicles that were broken into in Lyttelton and Diamond Harbour earlier last month has prompted the Banks Peninsula Community Board to ask for an update. Last month, about 100 Lyttelton residents were surveyed about the local policing. Two thirds of the people who responded said they believed

Crime in Lyttelton: 2016: 122 crimes reported • 48 thefts • 44 burglaries • 24 illegal uses of a motor vehicle • six assaults

the police response to crime was inadequate. The survey was organised by Candice Milner and Paul Dietche. Mr Dietche said people did not feel safe. “People know that they can run amuck when the police are off hours,” he said. Ms Milner says she has “had enough”. Sixty-six per cent, believed police response to crime is inadequate. Ms Milner said the statistics show people want something done about the issue and there are two options – permanent police or CCTV cameras. She said nobody wants cameras in their area but if the crime continues, something has to be done. Former detective Peter Newsome, who lives in Lyttelton, has laid an official complaint with the Minister of Police Paula Bennett saying police “fobbed off” two requests for help. The complaint is now with the Police Commissioner’s office. Mr Newsome wants a formal

review of Lyttelton’s after-hours policing policy. He said residents were losing confidence in the local police. Mr Newsome said neither of his complaints had been serious, but he was concerned by how “dismissive” Lyttelton police had been. He complained because he was seriously concerned about the way confidence in the police was dropping. Canterbury area prevention manager Acting Inspector Paul Reeves said he was aware of the discussion in the community, and it was a concern. “We need to make sure people do feel safe, and get good service from the police,” he said. He said serious incidents would always be responded to, even after the station was closed – but he could not say if there would be any change to the hours the station was manned. He said police resources had to be assigned where there was demand, and the number of calls to police from Lyttelton had not increased at all. National list MP Nuk Korako

has been campaigning for several months to get more police presence after hours in the area, but has so far been unsuccessful. He said an after hours police presence was particularly needed in the Lyttelton area because the bays were “the city’s playground”, and attracted a lot of visitors in the evenings and weekends. One of Bill English’s first promises as Prime Minister was to have 880 extra police officers on the beat around the country by November. The decision about where they are assigned will be made by police, but Mr Korako said he would “push hard” to have some of them placed in Lyttelton. Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson said she believed police there were doing the best job they could, but they needed more resources. “When the budgets are cut they can’t ask police to work as volunteers,” she said. Banks Peninsula city councillor and deputy mayor Andrew Turner said the issue had been raised with the local community

board, and they were concerned. “The scale of crime people are talking about seems to be greatly increased from what it was in the past. There have always been a few burglaries, vandalism, fighting and petty crime, but this quite unprecedented in the way it is being discussed,” he said. Although the numbers of reported crimes have dropped, he was concerned crimes might be going unreported. “If the lack of reporting is reflective of a community lack of confidence in the police, then that’s certainly a problem,” he said. But he said keeping the community safe went both ways, and there were also things residents could be doing to prevent crime. “In Lyttelton we have lived in a community where people look after each other, so people haven’t been as security conscious as they could be, making sure homes are locked and cars are locked securely,” he said. Since the issue was raised, about a dozen people in the community have volunteered to join the community watch – which may mean they are able to run more frequent patrols. • Additional reporting Noah Graham

Lincoln Uni’s Mrs O farewelled

Illegally sold dog back with family „„ By Kurt Bayer A LOST pet dog sold online just hours after it went missing has been reunited with its family. Tiny Trinnie went walkabouts from her Burwood home on the morning of February 19. The bichon mixed with longhaired chihuahua was allegedly picked up further down Bassett St, photographed, and offered for sale on a popular local buysell online page. Meanwhile, a distraught Muriwai family were out searching the neighbourhood, calling Trinnie’s name, phoning nearby vets, and on Monday morning, the city council. By Tuesday, they were becoming concerned for the cheeky, friendly dog’s welfare. “She’s so cute and so innocent, it’s obvious that she belongs to a loving home so we thought someone would’ve come forward with her,” said 21-year-old Eleanor Muriwai. “We never once thought that someone would find her and sell her.” Eleanor then plastered missing notices across social media sites in Christchurch, pleading for help in getting the beloved family dog home.

Last Wednesday, the unsuspecting family gave Trinnie back to her rightful owners. “We were so happy to get her back . . . she wouldn’t stop licking mum’s face on the drive home,” Eleanor said. “But it was sad for the other family. The wife is pregnant and the husband had bought her Trinnie as a gift, and in those few days they had Trinnie, the children had got quite attached.” Eleanor says the innocent

She left such a mark, the university’s cafe and bar was named after her when it opened in 2001. Mrs O’s has been an institution ever since. Mrs O’Loughlin (right) died on February 17, and was farewelled on Saturday. She was 89. Starting at the university in 1966, Mrs O’Loughlin was a cleaner and tea attendant largely in Hudson Hall. But in turn, she became a second mother to many students living on campus. One of those students was Paul Bolger – son of then Prime Minister Jim Bolger. “Mrs Bolger used to ring quite a lot to see how he was getting on, but he was generally quiet and studious,” Mrs O’Loughlin said in Lincoln’s Alumni News after retiring in 1998.

The theft was reported to police last Wednesday. “However, the owners later advised police the dog had been returned and no further police action was required and thus the matter has been filed,” a police spokeswoman said. Eleanor said the whole incident has left her family shaken. “We just can’t believe that someone would sell a dog that they found, and that wasn’t theirs to sell,” she said. “Trinnie means much more to us than money.

Water scheme plan to help dry river Central Plains project to help Selwyn River „„ By Tom Doudney THE PROPOSED use of Central Plains Water Scheme water to increase flows in the Selwyn River is likely to go ahead. However, one of the remaining questions is how the project would be funded. Last Wednesday, the zone committee led a workshop at the Lincoln Event Centre to progress its campaign on making Coes Ford swimmable again. About 80 people, including farmers and environmentalists turned up. The zone committee has agreed in principle to look into augmenting the Selwyn River’s flow with CPW water. Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee chairman Allen Lim said most people at the workshop had been positive about the idea. “One of the pipes essentially has to cross the Selwyn River anyway so we thought we would just take an off-take from there,” he said.

“It’s yet to be totally confirmed but given the level of interest, the likelihood of that project going ahead is much higher.” There were several parties which would have to come together and reach agreement to make it happen but he declined to comment further on who that would involve. “It’s about funding and who pays for what,” Mr Lim said. “This Swimmable Selwyn initiative has actually gone past Environment Canterbury and I think even central Government is probably talking about it.” It comes at a time when the river at Coes Ford has dried up apart from a couple of algae covered pools. Mr Lim acknowledged that augmenting the flow alone would not be enough to improve the river’s health. Cleaning up the Silverstream catchment, a major contributor of nutrients causing high E. coli levels at Coes Ford, would be another priority. The zone committee was aware there was a strong desire in the community to see Coes Ford swimmable again. Higher flows would help flush nutrients through instead of

concentrating them at Coes Ford. CPW water would likely be used to augment the river between later autumn and early spring. The water would top up groundwater first before flowing

into the river. “It could take a year to fill up, we just don’t know,” Mr Lim said. Fish and Game general manager and ECan councillor Rod Cullinane said the augmentation

plan could be a positive move but it would depend on what effect taking water which would otherwise flow elsewhere would have. “If we can get some water back in there without robbing Peter to pay Paul, so to speak, we would support that,” he said. Springston South artist and water quality campaigner Mike Glover said he wanted to know who would pay for the augmentation. “Does that mean the ratepayers will be paying a private company money for this water?” He was also concerned that increasing the flow of the Selwyn would also simply flush the nutrients down to Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere and the sea where they would also cause problems. A CPW spokeswoman said the augmentation plan was a council-led process. “CPW is here to help and to try and be a part of that,” she said. Last week the Government announced a target of 90 per cent of the country’s rivers and lakes being swimmable by 2040. •Megan Woods, page 22

Spring Festival Celebrations, Symbol of Multi-Cultural Diversity The Chinese communities have just welcomed the lunar new year of the Rooster. As a symbol of multi-cultural diversity and prosperity, the Spring Festival celebrations have been enjoyed by people of all cultural backgrounds in New Zealand. As the festival season coming to an end, we will have a review of this year’s celebrations in Christchurch and elsewhere. Spring Festival Gala and Reception hosted by the Chinese Consulate On January 16, the Chinese Consulate in Christchurch hosted the 2017 Spring Festival Gala and Reception in Issac Theatre Royal in Christchurch. More than 800 people including Consul General Jin Zhijian and wife, Minister Nicky Wagner of Custom and Disability Affairs, Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel, MP Dr. Jian Yang, MP Maureen Pugh, several other mayors of South Island Districts, and friends from all walks of life attended the celebration. Art Troupe from Wuhan performed a spectacular acrobatic, singing and dancing show for the guests. Consul General Jin in his remarks sent his greeting of the Chinese New Year. He said the show was the first performance from China in the Issac Theatre Royal since its reopening after the earthquake. It was regarded as the wrap-up of the series of celebrations in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of sister city relationship between Christchurch and Wuhan. He said in the new year symbolizing vitality and industry, the Consulate General would like to make joint efforts with all the friends to push forward the continuous development of friendly cooperative relationship between China and the South Island.

Minister Wagner, Mayor Dalziel and MP Jian Yang delivered remarks with warm feelings respectively wishing a joyful Spring Festival for all. They spoke positively of the remarkable progress of the China-New Zealand friendly cooperation, highly commended the important contributions of the Chinese community in promoting the economic and social development and multicultural integration of New Zealand, and expected China-New Zealand relationship and exchanges between China and the South Island to keep entering new stages.

“Cultures of China, Festival of Spring” Performance On February 7, the “Cultures of China, Festival of Spring” performance was held in the Royal Issac Theatre in Christchurch. Consul General Jin Zhijian and wife, MP Megan Woods, several mayors of South Island districts, Christchurch City Councilor Jimmy Chen and other guests were invited to attend, and nearly one thousand people watched the show. Consul General Jin in his remarks expressed warm welcome to the art troupe from China. He said culture serves as spiritual bonds among Chinese worldwide and also as the bridge of understanding and friendship linking different countries and ethnicities. Dr. Woods in her remarks appreciated the harmony among multiethnicities in Christchurch and the important contributions by the Chinese communities to the cultural diversity of the city. She also conveyed the New Year greeting by Labor Party Leader Andrew Little to the audience.

During the two and half hour performance, more than 20 programs have been presented. The “Face Changing” of Sichuan Opera, and the acrobatic act “Balancing on Pipes” have aroused waves of laughing and acclamation from audience.

Spring Festival Parade On February 8, a Spring Festival Gala Parade was held in Christchurch. The parade marched from the bridge of remembrance, crossed the CBD and arrived at the Cathedral Square. Over 150 local Chinese participated in the event and presented traditional cultural performances including waist drum, lion dancing, and Ethnic Gaoshan dancing.

The Royal Theatre was fully packed, filled with lively atmosphere, and the show has received bursts of applause from the audience throughout the process. The one and a half hour performance made a perfect ending in cheers and exclaiming.

Lantern Festival in Hagley Park On February 19, the Christchurch Lantern Festival returned bigger than before this year, providing visitors an experience of Chinese culture through hundreds of vibrantly coloured lanterns. The Chinese Consulate General in Christchurch donated two lanterns to the Festival, and also set up its own display tent in the park, giving out free cultural souvenirs. The city of Shenzhen, a sister city of Christchurch in China, also donated a lantern, and set up a tent to display intangible cultural heritage of China. During the celebrations, artists from China and local Chinese communities performed folk music, dancing and martial arts. They were well received by the audience.

Grant Pearce Our People The science of predicting For 25 years, Grant Pearce has been trying to predict how one of the most unpredictable forces moves – fire. Bridget Rutherford spoke to him about the other side of firefighting, and his role in the battle against the Port Hills fires So you are a fire research scientist, can you tell me what that entails?

There’s been a rural fire research programme in New Zealand for 25 years, and I’ve been with it for that time. We research most

aspects of vegetation fires with a focus on understanding fire behaviour, the way fires burn in different vegetation types and we develop tools for fire managers to use and better control wildfires or rural fires. The research programme is based at Scion, at Canterbury University. We’re trying to take that unpredictability out of these fire events. Part of our work is coming up with equations that predict how fast a fire will spread based on wind, humidity, and fuel. Then they get built into these software packages that can be used to calculate and estimate where the fire might spread. It’s a tool they can use on their laptop or phone. Where do you do your work? It’s a mix of office and field base research. Our office work is about

looking at new initiatives that are coming out internationally around wildfires and determining what’s relevant to New Zealand and how to adapt that. We also analyse the data that we collect from field work, and prepare models for predicting wildfire. In the field work we’re out looking at what the fuel types are and collecting information on how much biomass there is in different fuel types. We carry out experimental burns, which are controlled burns done specifically for research to collect data and make those models of how fast and how much fuel they burn. We also get involved in wildfires like the Port Hills fires. There are two reasons for that. One is to collect data to validate these models we’ve developed under the conditions wildfires are occurring. The second is to act as operational support to assist the people who are managing those wildfires. What was your role in the Port Hills fires? We’d been called in to support the incident management team in Rolleston. I was on the fire ground on Wednesday when the fire blew up. I was up on Worsleys Spur and Kennedys Bush as the fire was approaching the houses. I saw it first-hand and we were reporting the location of the fire and the properties under threat back to the fire managers. When we were up on Worsleys Spur, there were other resources working there. But once we got up to Kennedys Bush we were the only ones there so we called in the helicopters that helped to suppress the fire. When were you first called in? We first got asked to provide support on the behaviour associated with the fires and help predict the spread on

Tuesday morning. I spent six days straight supporting, and one of my colleagues is still working with them. It’s certainly exhausting work for the crews. Not just being on the fire ground, but being involved in operations and predicting what’s happening. I was working from 7am-11pm most days. Was it scary seeing how quickly it spread? I guess I wouldn’t necessarily say it was scary because I’ve been doing this for 25 years. I’ve been around a lot of fires both here and in Australia. But it still has an impact when you do see those severe fires and how they spread. How did the Port Hills fires stack up against others you’ve dealt with? For New Zealand these aren’t the largest fires, but they are the most severe in terms of the impact on properties with the number of houses burned and the people evacuated. It was larger than the 2000 Blenheim fires and the 1999 Alexandra fires. It’s probably been 100 years since we’ve had fires with that impact. Were you actually able to predict anything about the way it spread? For the most part once it had done its big run on Wednesday, it was more predictable. From our point of view, when the two fires came together and blew up and ran back down the hill, that was unusual. I say that because normally fires spread up-slope. In this case it was these northeasterly winds that pushed it down-hill. When the fire went just over Summit Rd and spread down towards Governors Bay, that was unusual. Why were you sent over to Australia to help out in the bush fires? New Zealand has a relationship with Australia around firefighter exchanges, and that’s the same with the United States.

In previous Victoria bush fires I would sit in the incident control centre alongside other personnel and we would collect weather information and make predictions on where they were likely to go, and communities that would need to be warned. We did post-fire investigations and inquiries and that involved reconstruction of what happened. A similar thing will happen after these Port Hills fires. We will provide technical advice on how the fires spread. We’ve already started work on collecting that data and starting to look at reconstruction. It will probably take several months. How did you get into this sort of work? There’s no formal qualification

pathway to get you into it. I’m an environmental scientist, I studied that through university. Rural fires require an understanding and application of a whole range of factors including weather, vegetation and terrain influences. I basically got into it by chance – there was a job advertised when the new programme was being set up. I was straight out of university after doing a masters degree, I would have been about 25. It’s not what I expected to be doing. But I’ve been lucky to have travelled to different countries to learn about fire management and research. How many are in your team? I’m one of a team of five researchers. A couple of us work in fire behaviour space, we’ve got another researcher for atmospheric science, a fourth person that does firefighter

safety, methods and tools/ technology. Then we have a social scientist who looks at the community aspect of rural fires. We are the only team in New Zealand working specifically on rural fires, but we work closely with other universities and organisations. What do you do with your spare time? I have family time. I have two teenage daughters, aged 15 and 17, so being a taxi service and running them around (laughs). I’ve been giving them driving lessons. Did you grow up in Christchurch? I’m originally from Ashburton and I studied in Dunedin. Then I moved to Rotorua when I got this job and spent six years there before the fire programme was moved to Christchurch. Throughout my childhood I spent time tramping in the hills with my father, so that was my experience to New Zealand outdoors. I always knew I wanted a career in something to do with that side of things. If I wasn’t doing what I am now, I probably would have been a Department of Conservation ranger or something. Throughout your career, what situations have stuck with you the most? My very first research fire was a small burn which managed to jump the fire break. It didn’t cause any damage but it was a very early lesson on the unpredictability of fires. In the operational side I was involved in the 1999 Alexandra fires where a State of Emergency was declared and the fires were threatening the township. That was a real eye opener for me. It was a grass fire spreading from north of the township and was moving about 3km an hour. I would also say the Black Saturday fires in Victoria where 120-odd people

were killed and thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed. It does have an emotional impact. Have you ever been a firefighter yourself? No, I’ve always been on the research or management support side of things. Two of my colleagues are volunteer firefighters though. Has it been a busy year for your team? Yes, we went up to Whitianga where houses were burned down last month. A colleague of mine went up to the Hawke’s Bay fires as well. This year has been a particularly bad year for New Zealand fires. In 25 years there hasn’t been another season like it in terms of impacts on properties. Some people said helicopters should have been called in sooner during the Port Hills fires. Is there anything more the crews could have done? We’re not involved in that debate. But I would say being

up there on the hill and seeing the sort of fire behaviour that was occurring, it wouldn’t have mattered what suppression or resources there were. How fast was the fire moving? When I was up on Kennedys Bush Rd, it was moving roughly 5-10km/h. They came down the hill a considerable distance when we were standing there. What sort of vegetation was it burning through? It was a real mix, we had cured grass (all dead), there was a lot of gorse scrub, and some had been sprayed so it was a more volatile fuel mix. And then there was a mix of regenerating native bush up around Kennedys Bush and that did slow the fire for a period. The second fire at Marley Hill was a lot of pine forest and mix scrub. Over the hill on the Governors Bay side it was native and exotic scrub and grass. It was a complicated mix of fuel types and didn’t provide a lot of opportunity for the fire to slow.

UNPREDICTABLE: Experimental burns are carried out to watch the fire’s behaviour.

Pamela Neil – Very impractical. The timber look with look like crap that close to the sea. Anything metal will also deteriorate . . . yuk. Rebekah Madgwick – My only worry, is that if that’s what it’s going to cost to build it, how much are they going to expect people to pay to live there? Yes, houses are needed, but not at a cost where people can’t afford them, cause that’s about as useful as tits on a bull. • Continued, page 22

Viewpoint • From page 21 Pauley Laird – Why don’t people stop worrying so much about the “look” of it and focus on the fact that Christchurch needs more housing. I personally don’t care how it looks or where it is as long as it offers people a roof over their heads and being on the east I’m sure it won’t be too badly priced rent-wise. Mike Smith – The prices for the apartments were very expensive for the area. That was the reason it fizzled. Prices were from $330,000 for a onebedroom studio to $640,000. Jake Ranginui – Shame they didn’t learn from the

apartments in Ferrymead, let’s hope they don’t allow this monstrosity to be built.

We said: City councillor Aaron Keown lost his first bid to get traffic signals installed at the Gardiners, Breens and Harewood Rds intersection – and he was not happy about it. First he voted against the entire plan, because he said his ward was not represented. Then he took to Facebook, posting a copy of the official

Jacque Skinner – Unbelievable! I can’t believe they voted against this intersection getting lights! Obviously never had to deal with it – I have to continuously go out of my way to avoid it as it’s so dangerous! And yet they are putting lights in on Sawyers Arms Rd by Northlands which is completely unnecessary! Andrew Johnson – If only Keown was as worried about the state of the roads over in the east.

Fast one on waterways LIKE MANY who grew up in the Canterbury region, I have sun-drenched childhood memories of summers heading to Coes Ford with my family for a day out. It seemed a magical place to me. It was the perfect place to spend hot summer days with siblings and friends secure in the knowledge that there was always a cool river to splash about in when it got too hot. Fast forward to 2017 and those days are long gone. Just last week, Fish and Game announced Coes Ford had dried up. With no water flowing and a couple of algae covered ponds, for all practical purposes the river has gone. This is not an unfamiliar situation for a number of historically popular swimming spots around the country – and it’s about to get worse. The National Government announced last week that it’s looking to improve the number of swimmable rivers in New Zealand. The announcement that, by 2040, it wants 90 per cent of New Zealand’s lakes and rivers to be “swimmable” in the sense that swimmers could dip their head in the water and not get sick. On the surface this sounds like

something I would wholeheartedly support. However, this was not actually about cleaning up our waterways; it was about the Government pulling a fast one and pretending it is addressing the problem. There was no cleaning up of our waterways, no improvement in water management. Instead, they’ve moved the goalposts by doubling the level of faeces, slime and general run-off that can be in a river before it’s considered unswimmable. That Nick Smith is willing to risk the well-being of Kiwi children shows just how out of touch he is. What we saw last week is just another mark on this Government’s shameful record on the environment. It’s overseen increasing pollution of our rivers these past eight years and this latest scam is denying New Zealanders their birthright to be able to swim in clean rivers, by saying that we should just swim in dirtier ones. Labour won’t put up with that and we’ll reverse the damage they’ve done after September 23.

Heat oven to 200 deg C fanbake. Prepare cauliflower into nice little florets by trimming leaves off at base, cut in half, then cut the thick stalky bits away from inside the head. Use fingers to break into small pieces, each about the size of a large grape. Toss the cauliflower florets in a bowl with the salt, turmeric and cumin seeds. Smear an oven dish with the canola oil then add the cauliflower and bake for 15 minutes until slightly charred and softened, then remove and place in a large bowl to cool a little. Place the peas in a bowl and pour boiling water over. After 30 seconds, drain and rinse in cold water (this will keep them bright green) then add to cauliflower. Slice the fennel very thinly (on a mandoline if you have one), and chop about ⅓ cup of the fronds. Add to the salad with the silverbeet and cashew pieces, then toss well to combine. Place all the dressing ingredients in a blender and blend until super-smooth. Spoon a little on top of the salad and finish with a few whole cashews to garnish.

GARDENING ADVICE

with

Q

My apple tree is growing but has insects inside the fruit. I found a black spot outside and after cutting, found an insect-like tunnel inside. Also, last year, my peach tree grew very nicely and gave juicy fruit. Unfortunately, this year there is little growth. Now the leaves have small holes and fruit is not growing. I’ve already cut down two peach trees due to this problem. I sprayed both trees with copper spray in winter but this did not stop the insects in my apple tree.

$85

PRIZE PACK! Bulbs are a superb way to add springtime fragrance and colour to your garden after a long winter. Plant different varieties to give variations in height and colour. Always label where the bulbs are in the garden so they are not damaged or accidently dug up when dormant over winter.

Today’s winning question came from Suraj Narang. Congratulations!

A

All fruit trees are prone to various disease and insect attack. With careful care, it is possible to keep these problems to a minimum. Continue winter spraying of a copper compound and install an insect trap into your apple tree to help control what sounds like Codling Moth. Its larva burrows into the fruit and feeds. As trees get older they are invariably more robust and less prone to insect and fungal infection. It is usually around three to five years before fruit trees are well established and commence fruiting regularly. They should be planted in well-drained soil to which compost is added at planting time, in a sheltered position that receives full sun throughout the year.

BE IN TO WIN!

Trees should be fertilised in spring/early summer and then again in early autumn with Daltons incredible edibles ® Fruit Tree & Berry Fertiliser. Mulching over summer months helps conserve water in the soil and reduce weed growth around trees. The holes in leaves of your peach tree are of little or no consequence to the overall health of the tree. However, it is a good idea to continue winter spraying with a copper compound. This adds a protective layer and works as a preventative for a variety of fungal diseases. For more advice and tips, read How to Grow Fruit Trees and Berries Guide at www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides

After a trying summer, it’s time to AS WE head towards autumn, we can reflect upon an extremely difficult summer in the garden. Right throughout New Zealand, there have been incredible variations of temperatures, rainfall, wind velocity and cloud coverage. A very trying summer for all! Now is the time for final harvesting of summer fruit and vegetables and the planting of your winter vegetable garden. Hopefully, early autumn rains will bring relief to the droughtstricken parts of New Zealand. Vegetables to be harvested in

March include beans, beetroot, cabbage, carrots, celery, corn, cucumbers, eggplants, jerusalem artichokes, lettuce, melons, onions, potatoes, pumpkins, radish, silverbeet, tomatoes and

yams. You may wish to save seed for next summer’s garden. Simply clean and dry the seed, then store them in a dry part of your garden shed. Don’t forget to clearly label them! Prepare areas for your winter vegetable garden by thorough digging, adding fresh Daltons Compost and ensuring there is adequate drainage. Winter veggies you can plant up now (either seed or young seedlings). This includes beetroot,

broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, lettuce, onions, radish, silverbeet, spinach, swedes and turnip. Always try and stagger your plantings to encourage continuous harvesting throughout the season, rather than having all the vegetables mature at the same time. Summer flowering annuals are nearing the end of their flowering season. Time to remove old plants and prepare the areas for your winter displays. Winter flowering

annuals to plant now include alyssum, calendulas, cineraria, cornflower, lobelia, nemesia, pansy, primulas, snapdragons, stock and wallflowers. Winter flowering annuals are an excellent means of brightening up dull parts of the garden, either planted in containers or especially in rose gardens where planted roses appear very bare. For example, a mass planting of Primula malacoides looks amazing in the winter garden. We are nearing the end of bulb planting season in the colder parts of New Zealand.

It’s all about autumn in the garden. Here’s what you need to prioritise this month Words & Photos Rachel Vogan

Welcome to autumn. For the next three months, it is all about picking ripe produce, preserving any excess and replenishing the hard-working soil in preparation for the next lot of planting in the edible garden. With soil being the engine room of the garden, it’s vital you refuel the earth with organic matter and nutrients before planting out autumn and winter crops. Homemade compost is an easy and economical way to do this and digging it in is always good exercise. Well-rotted animal manures do the job, too, giving the soil a boost and acting like a moisture-retentive sponge. The bonus is that it feeds the worms at the same time. My garden gets both of these and a good sprinkle of general fertiliser before the next crops go in.

Hedges Autumn is a good time to get on top of hedge trimming, especially before the growth slows down in another couple of months. Use the sharpest tools you have – blunt tools make the job so much harder and often cause scraggy edges that can result in dieback and dead patches. Use string lines to help keep your lines straight or try using a can of Dazzle to mark out your lines. Aim to have the bottom of the hedge slightly wider than the top to allow more light to get to the lower leaves.

Fruit Apples, pears, medlars and quinces are all plumping up. If trees are heavily laden with fruit, thin out excess clusters to allow the fruit to mature to a larger size. If you don’t get around to doing this, trees may abort the excess fruit that they cannot sustain. This isn’t a problem, but it does sap more energy out of the plant, so by doing it for the tree, you will get a better result. Evergreen fruits such a feijoa, Chilean guava and citrus would all enjoy a side-dressing of fertiliser now. Sprinkle it around the drip line and water in deeply.

Vegetables Numerous crops are ripe for the picking now; sweet corn, beans, tomatoes, chillies, eggplants, courgettes and cucumbers are all in season. The best time of day to harvest is first thing in the morning or early evening, try to leave the stalk on anything that has one. Leave sweet corn in its husk too, as this extends the shelf life for a good week or two. Before planting out any new seedlings or sowing seeds, replenish the soil with nutrients and organic matter. All brassica seedlings can be planted out now, remember to allow plenty of room between each plant, 50cm at least. Sow new rows of root crops like carrots, radish and beetroot.

Bulbs Start sourcing new season bulbs now. The shops are fully stocked with the new season’s varieties and offering very good specials for large quantities. In the home garden, now is the time to be lifting and digging clumps of existing bulbs. Gently ease the fork under the area and tease away the bulbs carefully. If need be, bulbs can be left above ground, in a cool dry spot away from direct sunlight, for a number of weeks. Aim to have them in the ground by the end of April.

begin autumn gardening As with all plants, thorough preparation of the soil prior to planting the bulbs will produce a better display in spring. Bulbs to plant in March include anemone, daffodil, hyacinth, ixia, lachenalia, freesia, ranunculus, sparaxis, tritonia, tulip and watsonias. The last of the peaches, golden queen, matures in March. Numerous apple and pear varieties are now ripening and eating grapes are now at their sweetest. Cover with netting if birds are a problem. In

warmer parts of New Zealand passionfruit will be ripening. Harvest as they ripen on the vine or pick up off the ground. Peach and nectarine trees that have cropped can now be pruned removing old wood and retaining enough new seasons growth for next season’s fruit. It’s always a good idea to maintain tree height at two to three metres to allow for easier picking and for netting if birds become a problem next season. When autumn rains ar-

rive, the renovation of existing lawns or the laying of new lawns can begin. When preparing your site for a new lawn, it is advisable to have a slight slope to allow water to run off, thereby avoiding puddling. A handy tip is to sow a mixture of grass seed as this provides a better all-yearround lawn. With existing lawns, fertiliser can be applied and watered in well. When irrigating your lawn, carry out this in the cooler part of the day to maximise water usage.

Container gardens are a very simple and effective approach to adding colour and interest to your property throughout the year. Containers can be replanted at regular intervals with flowering annuals. In larger containers, bulbs can be planted to emerge through flowering annuals in spring for maximum impact. •Visit Daltons on Facebook (Daltons Ltd) or for more gardening advice visit: www.daltons.co.nz/ home-gardening

Roses It’s all about deadheading, watering and feeding for these hard-working shrubs at the moment. Trim back spent flower heads to a new set of leaves, as removing the dead flowers speeds up the re-flowering process. An application of rose food now will give the plants a welcome feed leading into the cooler months. This not only nourishes the plant, but helps keep it healthy, which lowers the risks of it succumbing to pest attack and disease. If the autumn rains haven’t arrived, keep the fluids up to your plants; a deep soaking once or twice a week will keep them in top form.

Waimairi Beach: City’s best links course The Waimairi Beach Golf Club says why you should have a hit at their magnificent new course RORY MCILROY can hit his three wood more than 300 metres. That’s great . . . for McIlroy. But it’s not so great for the average club golfer when someone on the committee with delusions of golfing grandeur decides to turn their local golf club into a championship course. Here’s the thing. The average club golfer – that’s you and me – wants to have fun playing golf. The average club golfer wants to play on a golf course that extends them and, every now and again, we can walk off the course with a score that is a few shots under our handicap without having to use a bazooka to reach the fairways. The earthquakes played a big part in making the Waimairi Beach course ideal for the average club golfer. The first big earthquake on September 4, 2010, destroyed the back nine holes. It took five months to repair the damage and make the holes better than they were before the earthquake. February 22, 2011, the next big one, undid all of this work and

then some. All of the repaired back nine holes were destroyed. And the clubhouse was broken in so many places it was too dangerous to use. That’s when the committee made a brave decision to not just fix the clubhouse and repair the course, but to build a new clubhouse and build a new links golf course that was ideally suited for all golfers.

The Waimairi Beach Golf Club committee has done just that. They employed Kura Designs Ltd to design a links golf course so the average club golfer is tested without being exhausted. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a test for the better golfer. The first 13 holes and the new clubhouse were completed in May 2013. After 75 years as a tree-lined park land golf course, the Wai-

mairi Beach course had been reinvented as the “best links golf course” in Christchurch. One of the professional golfers who played in our pro-am last year stated that “the greens and fairways were the best I have played on anywhere in New Zealand.” The first of the unchanged five holes has been completed and was officially opened for play on January 28. The first hole is

a stunning par five with a small elevated green surrounded by bunkers. The long-hitters will be able to reach it with two shots but beware of the bunkers to the left of the green. If you have reached the stage in your golfing life where golf doesn’t feel like fun anymore, the course seems to be getting longer and longer, and your drives are getting shorter and shorter, it’s time to try something different. Come and play the “best links course in Christchurch.” You’ll be glad you did. It may even extend your golfing life and you’ll meet a lot of new friends as well. We are so confident you will love the course, we will give you an unconditional money back guarantee if you decide to become a full member. Plus, we’ll give you 12 free games at other Christchurch golf courses. That alone has a value of more than $400. We will also give you two vouchers so you can invite a couple of friends to play without having to pay green fees. Every Thursday, we have an open golf day with a $10 entry fee and good prizes.

Inside Milan – architecture and

„„ By Mike Yardley MILAN CAN be a tough nut to crack and first impressions aren’t always flattering. Extensively bombed during World War 2, the central city skyline resembles an architectural lasagne, a mish-mash of the venerable and the hastily built brutalist. But give this Italian powerhouse of finance and fashion a chance to reveal her finery and you’ll be amply rewarded. The banner attractions are headlined by the Duomo, Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, and what is arguably the most elegant shopping centre in Europe, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Fancy a new way to commune with this glass domed goliath? Head up to the roofline of the Galleria, which has only been open to the public since May. Costing €12, Highline Galleria serves up giddy perspectives of the building, across to the

MAJESTIC: Clockwise from left, the Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.

Duomo, and on a clear day, expansive views of the Alps. The far end archway leading out of the galleria adjoins the pretty Piazza della Scala, adorned with a statue of Leonardo Da Vinci overlooking Teatro La Scala.

First built in 1778, this legendary opera house was all but destroyed during World War 2, but was rapidly rebuilt and reopened in 1946. La Scala’s façade is rather austere, but like much of Milan, the real beauty lies within.

Its majestic six-tiered and chandeliered interior, bursting with gilded arches and scarlet-silk furnishings are sublime. Trying to score tickets to an opera is not easy, nor cheap, so if you want to grab a glimpse of the auditorium’s lavish interior, just head next door to Scala Museum where for €6 you get to gaze down inside

this stupendous theatre. One of Milan’s favourite sons, Guiseppe Verdi, premiered 10 of his 26 operas at La Scala and on nearby Via Manzoni, take note of the imposing Grand Hotel, an old-school Milanese establishment, where many glittery guests, including Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fontein didn’t just stay a few nights, but moved in. The most famous resident was Verdi himself, who shifted in 1872 and died in Room 105, in 1901. Horses outside the hotel had their hooves muffled, and the street was draped in carpet to cushion the sound of the carriages, so as not to disturb the dying composer in his last days. The hotel is actually a time-capsule, to the point that you can book the Verdi Suite, the very room where he died, which has been preserved as a memorial. An assortment of his property remains including the desk where he composed the music for Othello, and rather morbidly, the bed in which he died.

While soaking up the fashion houses in the Golden Quad, enjoy coffee and cake at Caffe Cova. Situated on my favourite street, via Montenapoleone, where the pavement looks more like a catwalk due to the fine threads flaunted by the passers-by, the café has been in business since 1817 and was a second home to all the A-list composers. Order up an espresso and a slice of Cova Panettone, Verdi’s personal favourite – but stay standing at the bar. Sit down and you’ll pay 10 times more.

lan’s famous umbrella company. In a city where it rains more regularly than Auckland, the trending must-have object of Milanese desire is a tailored umbrella. You choose the wood, the metal, the insets, the fabrics – even the handle. It’s great fun watching the bespoke brolly browsers in action at Maglia Francesco, on via Ripamonti. One of Milan’s most adored treasures is also one of the most elusive: Da Vinci’s depiction of The Last Supper. Miraculously surviving the allied bombings, the revered wall mural graces

the refectory of the Dominican monastery at Santa Maria delle Grazie. Da Vinci’s evocative work was applied directly onto dry wall, which is the reason for its fragility, and the limited viewing time. The painstaking restoration carried out in recent years is cause for celebration, albeit in a hushed reverential kind of way.

Classic kid’s tale finally coming

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding FROM THE moment The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show was brought to life on stage, Australian producer Michael Sieders (right) had his heart set on bringing the show across the ditch. After two years of touring Australia, the timeless children’s story will finally come to the city in July. Star Media has partnered the Isaac Theatre Royal to bring the successful show to Christchurch audiences. “It has been a long time coming. I have been planning this since its inception in 2015. Glad we can finally get it over there,” Sieders said. The show is to be presented by JWR Productions Australia and Michael Sieders Presents. Seventy-five hand-made puppets controlled by just four cast members will take Eric

MAGICAL SHOW: The giant butterfly is one of 75 hand-made puppets to feature in The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show.

Carle’s classic tale from the page to the Isaac Theatre Royal’s stage. But to stay true to what is only a short 22-page book, audiences will get to see another three of Carle’s children’s book adapted, bulking the show out to nearly an hour. The show is to begin with The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse,

Mister Seahorse, The Very Lonely Firefly before finishing with The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The stage is to be transformed into a giant library with a 3.5m high book prop enabling the cast to create the different setting for each story. A team of about five puppetmakers from Puppet Kitchen Productions in New York City

spent four months full-time creating the puppets before they were shipped off to Sydney. “We have puppets that range in size from the little tiny lightup firefly which is probably about the size of someone’s hand, ranging right up to the butterfly which has a wing span of nearly 4m,” Sieders said. He said the giant butterfly puppet will literally fly off a page and head straight towards the audience.

“Even though you only get to see those puppets for sometimes a very brief moment on stage, you can tell so much work has gone into them and the detail is just breath-taking”. Sieders said this is his first work he has done for children and it has been the most satisfying experience he has had as a producer.

TIP OF THE WEEK If your feet are sore and aching roll your feet over a frozen drink bottle after your run, it can do wonders. If your shoes are worn this is the time to replace them so you can still “run them in”. If the shoes feel good stick to the same brand and model. Most specialised sport shoe shops have personnel trained in advising people on the right shoe wear. You can also ask a podiatrist. SportsMed have a great team of experienced podiatrists who can help. On behalf of the team at Sportsmed (www.sportsmed.co.nz) Dr John Hellemans, Sportsmedicine Practitioner/Coach This programme and accompanying information are written as a guide only.

Fill the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 to 9.

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 6 Very Good 8 Excellent

10

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. © 2017 KenKen Puzzle LLC. All rights reserved

Rise in number of motorists running red lights „ By Gabrielle Stuart CHRISTCHURCH’S growing red light-running problem is leaving dozens of injuries in its wake. In the past year, there were 65 crashes which left people injured after drivers ran red lights, up from 42 the year before. At the city’s top 10 worst intersections this month, almost 5400 drivers ran red lights in a single day. That was up 31 per cent from last year, and 64 per cent more than in 2014. They do not include people turning right across an intersection on a red light. The worst for red light-runners was the intersection of Blenheim Rd and Mandeville St, where 652 were detected on a single day on Thursday, December 1. Police figures have also grown. In the last year, 1491 people were ticketed for running red lights in Christchurch, up from

1316 the year before and 1266 in 2014. Canterbury road policing manager Inspector Al Stewart (left) said he was disappointed to see the rise. “It puts people at risk. They may get away with it 99 out of 100 times, but it is that one time which could leave someone injured or killed,” he said. He said police had a focus last year on bad driving at intersections, which included red light-running, and that would continue until the numbers improved. People often had different excuses when ticketed for running red lights, but there was no acceptable reason, he said. “A lot of people are simply focused on other things and don’t see it, but that is just as unacceptable as running a light deliberately, because when driving you should be focused on the task at hand,” he said. •Turn to page 4

Sport In Brief TACTIX HIT THE ROAD The Mainland Tactix will begin their preseason this weekend with two games against the Southern Steel in Dunedin. The two teams will meet in a match on Saturday and again on Sunday ahead of the ANZ Premiership netball season, which begins on March 26. The Tactix travel south tomorrow and will stop in Geraldine, Temuka and Waimate to run coaching seminars in local netball centres. BLACK STICKS WOMEN IN RANGIORA The Black Sticks women’s side is set to play two tests against the United States on the brand new turf at the Waimakariri Hockey Stadium in Rangiora next month. The games, on March 25 and 26, will be the first time a New Zealand senior international team of any sport has played in North Canterbury. The Rangiora Hockey Club started in 1898. GARVEY WINS IN DUNEDIN Amelia Garvey recorded a dominant victory at the South Island Stroke-Play Championship at Dunedin’s St Clair Golf Club. A final round five over par didn’t dent her title chances after three rounds of 68 left her well ahead of the field, eventually winning by 12 shots. It’s a promising sign for the Burnside High School student ahead of the first event on the national Charles Tour next month.

Tight contest expected in school rowing champs „„ By Gordon Findlater THE BATTLE for supremacy in the boys’ eight is expected to be a three-horse race at this month’s South Island Secondary School Championships. Christchurch Boys’ High School, St Andrew’s College and Christ’s College all made the final of last year’s Maadi Cup (national regatta) at Lake Ruataniwha in Twizel. The three will meet again at the same venue from March 19-20 for the South Island championships. Christ’s took the spoils at last year’s Maadi Cup winning their first title in the eight since 2012. They also did the double, winning the Springbok Shield (under-18 four), making it the first time they had won both titles since 1998. Just two members of the winning eight have retuned for this year. However, they aren’t slowing down, winning at the Canterbury Junior Regatta on Ashburton’s Lake Hood at the weekend. While he was happy with the crew’s performance, Christ’s head coach Henry Smith says not much can be taken from the regatta with the absence of

the top CBHS and St Andrew’s crews. “CBHS have looked like the early team to beat. We’re happy with how we went at the weekend but it won’t mean anything when we get to South Island (championships),” said Smith. CBHS finished third in the Maadi Cup last year, their second best result ever. The school has never won the cup before. “It will be the first time since

late last year the three crews have lined up against each other, and will act as a good gauge ahead of the Maadi Cup” said CBHS head of rowing Richard Taylor. “We didn’t compete at last weekend’s regatta because we’ve just got a new boat and the boys needed time to train in it rather than go straight into racing,” said Taylor. The under-18 girls’ eight will be just at hotly contested at the

South Island Secondary School Championships. St Margaret’s College, Rangi Ruru Girls’ School and Christchurch Girls’ High School occupied the top three spots at last weekend’s Canterbury champs. St Margaret’s have recorded podium finishes in the Jubilee Cup race for the past five years, winning the national under-18 schools’ title in 2015 and 2013. The crew of Ella Wells, Alice Elworthy, Emma Roberts, Gaby McKellar, Olivia Hutton, Olivia Hughes, Harriet Kitchingman, Ilaria Earl and Lucy Davidson (cox) will be the team to beat at this month’s South Island event after taking out last weekend’s race. However, they’ll face stiff competition with just five seconds separating the top three teams. January’s South Island club champs was an even tighter encounter with Rangi Ruru edging St Margaret’s by just 0.08 seconds. This month’s regatta at Lake Ruataniwha will be followed by the Maadi Cup regatta at Lake Karapiro in Cambridge from March 27 to April 1.

Six Cantabrians in Black Sticks line up to play Pakistan SIX CANTERBURY players have been named in new Black Sticks men’s coach Darren Smith’s team to take on Pakistan this month. Canterbury striker Cam Hayde is one of four players in the squad who are set to earn their first international cap. He currently lives in Auckland but plays representative hockey for the Canterbury Cavaliers and has played for Christchurch Boys’ High School and

Harewood. Hayde, 25, joins David Bryson (six caps), George Enerson (19 caps), Nick Haig (200 caps), Sam Lane (three caps) and Dominic Newman (three caps), as the Cantabrians in what is predominately a young and exciting team. The series serves as the Black Sticks’ first competition for 2017. Three tests will be played in Wellington (March 17, 18, 20) followed by two games in

the

Clareville, Wairarapa (March 22 and 23). Smith said he was looking forward to the series and setting a benchmark ahead of an important year, which will see World Cup qualification on the line at the FIH World League semi-final in South Africa. “This is a very exciting side including some great young talent who have a good opportunity to test themselves against a hardnosed opponent in Pakistan.”

Richie Mo’unga injury improves odds for Highlanders THE REALITY of Super Rugby has quickly hit for rivals Scott Robertson and Tony Brown in their first seasons as head coaches. Both have lost a key back after round one, with Richie Mo’unga and Ben Smith injured, and of the two teams who face each other in Dunedin on Saturday, it is perhaps the Crusaders who are worst off. First-five Mo’unga, who fractured a hand in his team’s victory

over the Brumbies, started every match for the Crusaders last season and has been ruled out for up to eight weeks following surgery. All Blacks fullback Smith suffered concussion in the Highlanders’ loss to the Chiefs and will miss the next two matches at least. The Crusaders will back their depth to cover the absence of 22-year-old Mo’unga – specifically Marty McKenzie and Mitchell Hunt, with the latter

make something from nothing on attack. The injuries to Mo’unga and Smith over the weekend were by far the most serious suffered by the five New Zealand teams. Another potential blow for Robertson is Seta Tamanivalu’s hamstring niggle which forced him to leave the field against the Brumbies. But Robertson should welcome back flanker Matt Todd, a late withdrawal against the Brumbies due to a leg infection.

He is a young man who knows what he wants and how to get it – as a 14-year-old he seized the opportunity provided by his parents’ holiday in Australia to get his first Samoan and Tongan tattoos – so confidence and decisiveness clearly aren’t issues for him.

for when those fourwheel-drive tracks beckon. You can guarantee the mechanical elements have been engineered to stand the test of time, after all Mitsubishi offer a 10-year driveline warranty.

Yellow Pencil

„„ By Ross Kiddie WHEN Mitsubishi Motors New Zealand recently launched its Pajero Sport I was a little surprised that the company ditched the nameplate of its predecessor – the Challenger. I’m picking there’s some conflict with other manufacturers regarding the use of that name, but the reality is the fundamentals which made Challenger such a popular competitor in the large sport utility vehicle market have been carried over to the Pajero off-shoot. The Pajero Sport joins a host of other ute-based, four-wheel-drive sport utility vehicles. Mitsubishi almost pioneered that part of the market in 1996 with the Triton-based Challenger. Today’s Pajero Sport shares a lot of componentry with Triton such as the driveline, but it is distanced from it in the respect that it is a lot more sophisticated. It is more car-like than ute-like, even though it is still built around a ladder chassis, live rear axle and suspension elements which are engineered for the serious off-road journey. The Pajero Sport is also styled appealingly and is most definitely built to SUV design parameters. It arrives with diesel power only, it is a 2.5-litre four-cylinder unit and is rated by Mitsubishi with 135kW and 437Nm. It is a real powerhouse and drives through the sophistication of an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The engine/ gearbox combination is rather special, especially so with the number of ratios, there is almost seamless gearing offering the best structures for both off-road challenges and smooth momentum for the everyday commute. Of course, the Pajero Sport also gets a seriously low ratio transfer system

The Best Kept Secrets to Selling Your Home Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the only impression No matter how good the interior of your home looks, buyers have already judged your home before they walk through the door. You never have a second chance to make a first impression. It’s important to make people feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry ways are also important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by putting in a small bench or a vase of freshcut flowers. Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show Your house needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you never know when your buyer is going to walk through the door. You have to be available whenever they want to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little inconvenient, but it will get your house sold. Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part of it is that you’ll probably get 85% of your money back. It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start envisioning their own style. If you have a little money to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why one? Because when people see one highend appliance they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates the kitchen. Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house One of the most important things to do when selling your house is to depersonalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your stuff – put it in storage.

The Star

This includes family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes. Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space. Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your money back if you do a huge improvement project before you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles, cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets and clean the grout. Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts of potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody is a dog- or catlover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the impression that your house is not clean. If you’re planning an open home don’t leave your pets around. Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong real estate agent. Make sure you have an agent who is totally informed. They must constantly monitor the multiple listing service (MLS), know what properties are going on the market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find an agent who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one has many tools to get your house sold. Selling Secret #8: Light it up Maximize the light in your home. After location, good light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable. Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets Storage is something every buyer is looking for and can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and cabinets clean and tidy.
