Hats off to Joe’s camera catching jump

Year 13 Cashmere High School student Joe Chamberlain makes a flying leap in the long jump at the school’s athletics day. Students from year 9 to 13 competed in various events and competitions throughout the day.

„„ By Caitlin Miles THREE SCHOOLS which have been campaigning for lower speed limits outside their gates are unlikely to get them. St Anne’s Catholic, Te Waka Unua and Linwood Avenue schools all want the speed reduced from 50km/h to 40km/h during school pick-up and drop-off times along with flashing speed reduction signs. A report to the city council said the schools don’t need the speed reduced because of various reasons. St Anne’s is unlikely to have speed reduced because of the Woolston Village project, which could see speed reduced to 30km/h down part of Ferry Rd, which includes the school. However, the plan has been met with public criticism and has been taken back to the city council. St Anne’s principal Dallas Wichman said it was disappointing, since changes to the Woolston

Village project may include not lowering the speed. “It could take three to five years if ever for something to be done and that’s a lot of time in the meantime for someone to get run over,” he said. The report comes as a 1759-signature petition will be presented to the city council on Thursday, asking for its support in lowering the speed limits. Petition organiser, Port Hills list MP Nuk Korako, said if speed isn’t reduced outside the schools, it would be “really disappointing” because the community wanted it. “People are very passionate about this. This is the community speaking,” Mr Korako said. The current budget for the city council’s school speed zones priority list is $140,000 – which allows for three schools to have speed reduced every year. •Turn to page 5

Tuesday March 7 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

DISAPPOINTING news (see page 1) for three local schools fighting to get the speed limit outside their gates lowered. That 10km/h drop in speed can be critical in stopping when a child unexpectedly runs out onto the road; and if there is an impact the injuries are likely to be far less severe. The Government spent large amounts several years ago on a TV campaign about this very thing – the faster you go the bigger the mess. But a city council reports says lower speed limits outside Linwood Avenue, Te Waka Unua and St Anne’s Catholic schools are not needed. They are looking at other measures. It comes as a petition with more than 1750 signatures for lower speed limits is about to presented to the city council. - Barry Clarke

News Extra lane plan to fix delays „„ By Bridget Rutherford and Caitlin Miles A NEW lane is planned for Ensors Rd to help keep traffic moving. The $500,000 upgrade to the section of Ensors Rd, between Brougham St and Opawa Rd, was proposed after buses recorded big delays there. The Orbiter recorded a 2mins delay northbound and 30secs southbound at peak times. City council head of transport Chris Gregory said it was because of the traffic lights at Brougham St and Ensors Rd were close to the roundabout where Ensors Rd meets Opawa Rd. The delay was made worse by the railway crossing just north of Brougham St, he said. Mr Gregory said the city council had budgeted $501,696 for the project, which will be done in conjunction with the New Zealand Transport Agency. The plan is to add a second northbound lane on Ensors Rd, south of Brougham St, to allow two lanes of straight through traffic to travel north. It will also include cycle lanes to both sides of Ensors Rd through the intersection. The free left-hand

BUSY: Congestion on Ensors Rd, between Brougham St and Opawa Rd, has prompted an upgrade. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN turn lane on Brougham St into Ensors Rd will be removed, and replaced with a give way. The city council hopes another lane will improve bus travel times and bus journey reliability during peak times. Environment Canterbury senior public transport manager Rob Woods said like anyone

who drove, there could often be delays due to roadworks or peak times. He said the Orbiter operated every 10min on weekdays in each direction. More than 180 buses travelled through that section of road every week day, he said. “We are keen to ensure this

work helps reduce delays for the Orbiter for new and existing customers.” Public consultation on the plans closes next month, with final sign off from the city council expected in July. Mr Gregory said construction is due to start in 2018, taking four months to finish.

In Brief SIGN OF THE TAKAHE The Sign of the Takahe’s restoration work will be completed this month, later than expected. The city council aimed to complete the rebuild of the heritage-listed building last month, but there were problems restoring the roof. Work is on going at the site. BELL TOWER REPAIRS The bell tower at the oldest church in Addington needs to be repaired. The Anglican Church of St Mary the Virgin recently celebrated its 150th birthday and, while the church itself is stable, engineers are investigating how much work the bell tower needs to be repaired. The damage is from old age. The church has set up a bell tower restoration fund to start collecting money for the repairs. The cost of the repairs is not yet known.

Your Local Views Kudos to drivers – cyclist Halswell Residents’ Association secretary David Hawke writes about positive changes in the city in regard to the treatment of cyclists I THOUGHT to write a positive piece looking at changes since that time. Strangely, you might think, I want to endorse the city’s driver behaviour – not towards each other, but towards people on bikes. Let me explain. I ride my bike every day, rain or sun, from home in Halswell to my job at the Ara Institute of Canterbury in the central city. Being keen cycle tourists, we take our bikes and ride in many other towns around New Zealand. With remarkably rare exceptions, I find that Christchurch folk driving their cars are at the top of the heap courtesy-wise toward folk on bikes. Being a person who likes to rationalise everything, I think this is because we have such high recreational bike use in

Christchurch. Today’s car or heavy vehicle driver is the weekend’s road or mountain bike rider. My bike route to work takes me along Lincoln Rd to Hagley Park, then east along the new protected cycleway on Tuam St. Returning home, I ride the new cycleway on St Asaph St. While there are certainly issues with details along these cycleways, the difference from pre-earthquake days is totally

beyond imagining. A bunch of us met during the week with city council officers (at their initiative) to identify these concerns from a cyclist perspective, with a real feeling that city council is committed to making necessary changes. And I’m really looking forward to the day when I can join up with the Quarryman’s Trail cycleway that will take me all the way to Halswell. So, in spite of the issues, I think that Christchurch is doing its best to make itself the more liveable city that we all hoped for post-earthquake. As one of those drivers considerate of the folk riding bikes along city streets, take the opportunity to feel good about yourself.

Gary Knight of Hoon Hay writes about an article in last week’s Southern View about school speed limits While the installation of 40km/h speed restriction signs, encompassing Studholme, Somerfield, Bard and Tainui Sts, is encouraging for Somerfield School, many anomalies exist over the installation of these illuminated signs. With Haeata Community Campus, Ouruhia Model School and also Yaldhurst and Marshland schools in limbo; Cashmere High and Christchurch South Intermediate 2018; Aidanfield 2019; St Martins 2020; and Te Waka Unua; Linwood Avenue; and St Anne’s Catholic schools all awaiting notification relating to

40km/h sign installation, it bears testimony to flawed protocol regarding their priority. If the present school speed zone budget is $140,000 yearly to encompass four schools, the criteria of the 2015-2025 longterm city council plan to operate grants as a contributory factor towards community building is surely the obvious catalyst to re-evaluate and upgrade this present budget from a council perspective. It would then be viable to initiate these electronic installations city-wide for the safety of our most precious commodity (our children). It is vital for community boards and council personnel to continually reappraise and concede the necessity of these signs adjacent to schools.

NINa COOk - OpeNINg Nina Cook was born in Whakatane in 1967. She was educated in Wanganui and then at Christchurch Polytechnic School of Art and Design where she received a Bachelor of Design. In 2007 Nina established the studio from which she currently works. Nina’s latest exhibition named ‘Opening’ takes place at Little River Gallery from March 11th until April 5th. Ian Clothier writes about Nina Cook’s new works from the exhibition ‘Opening’. “…Sumptuously indulgent, some of the paintings have sensual cavities accompanied by extravagant displays of form and colour that come close to gorging the eyes. Words such as colour, spectrum and visual feast apply equally to the paintings as they do to the tail of peacocks. Such as the collection of thoughts about feathers, colour and visual luxury that assemble on reflection of Nina Cook’s Opening works.” Nina writes about her own work. “The narrative/impetus for this series of works is deeply personal. Broadly, it is about a cycle of profound hurt to intense release. Opening: to force an opening (to breach) through to Opening: to release and truly open up. The process is integral and is one of concentrated, open-minded patience, requiring me to stay alert to paint (viscosity, brush loading, etc) and compositional characteristics in much the same way as fully abstract works demand. These cannot be rushed, nor the movements/marks allowed to become repetitively mechanical. To do so would be to undermine the intention of the work. The works initially appear highly decorative and orderly – feathers mean birds. But on closer inspection, these are not any birds you’d recognise. Their physiology is different (wrong? altered?). The colours and intensity are emotive, the mark-making intense. These irregularities draw you in, encourage observation and contemplation. But ultimately you are released to once again to simply enjoy the decorative qualities of these jewels. That they are designed to be hung at any angle, allows the image to be changed/refreshed at will. This allows the viewer input into the relationship each work has with its surroundings. The round paintings are very effective in groupings, allowing differences between the works to intensify each other.”

Speed limit changes unlikely for schools

Dame Ngaio House gets $40,000 repair grant NGAIO MARSH House is likely to get a heritage grant of nearly $40,000 to help with earthquake repair work. Ngaio Marsh House and Heritage Trust has applied to the city council for a grant of $39,889 for conservation, strengthening and repair work. The city council’s social and community development committee recommended last week that councillors approve the grant. The building at 37 Valley Rd, Cashmere, is currently a museum, dedicated to the memory of Dame Ngaio Marsh, a world-renowned crime writer and theatre director. Repairs were carried out following the earthquakes, but there are ongoing problems with the roof which the trust wants fixed. The report to the city council said the trust has applied for the grant to repair not only the roof, but also provide fire protection, including fire alarms, security and the replacement of the heating system. The total cost for the current repair of the building is estimated at $79,777.


BOXED IN: To deter graffiti, the Woolston Borough Monument has been encased in a see-through box. PHOTO: ANDREW KING

Monument protected „„ By Caitlin Miles THE WOOLSTON Borough Monument is now kept in a see-through box to deter people from vandalising it. The monument, on the corner of Ferry Rd and Richardson Tce, has often been the target of graffiti, with the city council stepping in to stop it from continuing. It commemorates when Woolston became a borough on July 27, 1893, and is made of Oamaru stone. Woolston Community Association co-ordinator and nearby resident, Carol Brown,

said it “looks lovely” and she was glad to see it protected, improving the look of the area. However, she was concerned that people would still be able to deface it by getting over the walls. “I just hope no one tries to jump over and graffiti it again,” Mrs Brown said. A stonemason sanded down the monument to remove the graffiti to make it ready for the polyglass panels at a cost of $550. However, a small section of graffiti couldn’t be so easily removed – the city council is trialling a slow-acting mixture

to remove the remaining graffiti in the hopes of preserving the stone. The project cost $23,000 to complete. A similar idea is planned for the New Brighton War Memorial to protect it from graffiti. Its panels are currently being finished and are expected to go up later this month. The panels can be removed during ceremonies. HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the protective panels over the monuments? Send you opinion to caitlin.miiles@ starmediakiwi

•From page 1 Mr Korako said the budget for lowering speed limits is “ludicrous” and too low and he wants the city council to put more money into the budget and make children’s safety a “priority.” Te Waka Unua may get a signalised pedestrian crossing, like that currently outside Linwood Ave, because the high traffic volume on Ferry Rd makes it difficult for children to operate the existing school patrol. Linwood Avenue already has a signalised pedestrian crossing and, in a report to councillors, city council staff said “ . . . it is the view of staff that a school speed zone (outside Linwood Avenue) would not only be unnecessary, it would unjustly defer the provision of a school speed zone where there is a greater need.” Cashmere High and Christchurch South Intermediate will get lower speed zones next year, Aidanfield Christian School in 2019, and St Martins School in 2020.

News Sword champ – Japanese style „„ By Gabrielle Stuart A LINWOOD man has become the first person in New Zealand qualified in Nito-ryu Kendo – Japanese double-sword fighting. Eynon Phillips said it was his nerdy side that first attracted him to the sport as a university student 22 years ago. “I had always been interested in swords, as a pretty geeky guy, and was really interested in Japanese things, so it combined all that,” he said. He began to teach himself Nito-ryu, fighting with two swords, about three years ago, when he wanted a new challenge. Two weeks ago he travelled to Auckland to fight for his fourthdan Kendo ranking, where he was the first New Zealander to ever pass the test, fighting with two swords. Reaching first-dan is the rough equivalent of a black belt in other martial arts, so fourthdan level takes years to reach. Phillips said the test had involved two short fights, which only took about one minute. But, although the test was short, he said it was both physi-

cally and mentally exhausting, as he had just two minutes to show his skill against an unknown opponent. “You find out a lot about yourself, and also about how to read other people,” he said. He said there were only about 10 people in Christchurch practising the sport when he started,

but the club now had about 50 members. Phillips works as a city council transport planner, and said the sport was a great way to work out any frustration after spending his day working at a desk. The fighting is done with full traditional armour and blunt

weapons, but he said there were other dangers in the sport. They included the difficulties in carrying his practice swords to training, which had resulted in some awkward situations, he said. “I used to get a few looks from bus drivers who thought I was carrying a rifle,” he said.

Warming winter with

EnviroMaster ArE yoU struggling with the heat of Summer or wanting to get organised for Winter? With the ever changing weather patterns, heat pumps have the flexibility of being able to heat and cool which is an advantage no other appliance can offer. This represents great value for your investment as you can use it all year round. The team at Enviro Master Ltd can help keep you cool this Summer either at home or work. Enviro Master supplies, installs and services all the leading brands including Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means our team can show you which system and brand will best suit your needs. We currently have savings up to $600 off the recommended retail price on selected models. Would you like to maximise the number of days you can use your swimming pool? Heating your pool can do this and one of the most cost effective ways is with a water heat pump. Enviro Master Ltd can supply, install and service you swimming pool heat pump providing you with a comfortable, extended swimming season. Servicing your heat pump is extremely important to ensure that it is working

as effectively and efficiently as possible resulting in a healthy, hygienic heat pump, lower power bills and greater comfort. But beware, not all cleaning companies are equal. We are constantly hearing of people being charged huge amounts for servicing and all they are getting is a heat pump clean. We at Enviro Master, are qualified engineers and therefore are able to fully test and diagnose any problems you may or may not be aware of with your heat pump. Also, as we are associated with all major brands, we are able to repair these under warranty if they are still within the warranty period. It is important to remember, when selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s warranty does not cover the installation and consumers could be responsible for any repair or damage caused to the system due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s five-star installation guarantee ensures correct installation, and a demonstration so customers have an understanding on how it will best meet their needs. For a free in home consultation, call Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd, Waltham, Christchurch.

The facts about home ventilation Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure Under the New Zealand Building Code, all buildings, including residential, need to be suitably ventilated, either with opening windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this provision is to safeguard people from illness or loss of amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are many benefits to forced, or mechanical, ventilation over opening windows, including warmth, security, reduction of outside noises and reduction of condensation. Traditional domestic ventilation systems are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from outside via the roof space and force the stale air out through gaps around windows and doors. The incoming air from these systems has to be heated or cooled to keep the house warm in winter or cool in summer. The Smooth-Air HEX390 is a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It extracts air from the house and at the same time brings in fresh air. These two streams of air pass through a heat exchanger, which warms incoming air in winter and cools in summer if air conditioning is being used. This means that up to 80% of the energy which would be

ced Balan re u Press on lati Venti

wasted using a traditional positive pressure system is recovered, resulting in significant energy savings and therefore lower heating or cooling costs. Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation systems have been considerably more expensive than traditional positive pressure systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390 balanced pressure system can be installed for a similar price as a traditional positive pressure system.

Methyl B-12 B12 is essential for energy production, cell health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and repair and prevention of homocysteine.

Emerging research has shown as many as 50 per cent of older adults and as many as 25 per cent of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and repair and prevention of homocysteine - a serious cardiovascular risk factor that is known to cause damage and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a 34 per

cent decrease risk of vision loss in a study of participants aged 40+ who supplemented with B12. Another study linked a higher risk of hearing loss in subjects in their 60s who were low in B12. The reason so many people lack B12 seems to be due to our body’s inability to absorb it as we age, as the digestive system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux medication and other drugs further reduce B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in the form of

Methylcobalamin sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the mouth and thru bypassing the digestive tract have been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in the body. Further info is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, phone 388 5757. We are always happy to help!

Time Honoured Remedy According to a country Doctor “D.C. Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an important part of a long healthy life. Dr. Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly consumed cider vinegar and honey had excellent health with many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even when well into their eighties. Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar and honey on arthritis can be remarkable with many patients reporting almost total relief after taking a course of the cider vinegar and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted calcium deposits and helped the body control calcium use. As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found regular administration of cider vinegar and honey at the onset of complaints such as the common cold, sinusitis, asthmatic attacks, hay fever, and childhood diseases such as chicken pox and measles, was accompanied by an improvement in the condition with symptoms either disappearing, or the conditions were extremely mild and soon over. Apple cider vinegar contains all the goodness of the apple in a form that is readily accepted by the body. Scientists have found over 90 different substances in ACV, among them 20 important trace elements, minerals, essential enzymes, a number of different acids including malic acid, amino acids and roughage in the form of potash and pectin. A scientific

study at the Shizuka University in Japan has proven ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It can destroy free radicals, which are a major factor in ageing.) and also the ACV can break down cholesterol formations in the blood vessels. ACV and H is a powerful tonic that also promotes digestion, assimilation of nutrients and elimination of waste, and helps neutralize any toxic substances that enter the body. It is important to note not all cider vinegar is made in the traditional way and results are likely to prove disappointing with these other vinegars.
