Bringing the beat back to Papanui „„ By Julia Evans A NEW music recording programme will fill a vacuum left since the earthquakes. Developed with the modern music industry in mind, BeatONE is a new programme for students run by the Papanui Youth Development Trust. Trust manager Hamish Flynn said there’s been a real need for a programme like this ever since the February 22, 2011, earthquake. “Pre-quake you had places like Zebedees, White Elephant and Fuse, but they’re pretty much all gone now,” RISING STARS: Budding musicians Asher Flynn, 13, and Gavin McGill, 19, mix songs in the new music recording programme, he said.

Bottle store plan doubles in size „„ By Julia Evans A REVISED application for a controversial bottle store on Trafford St has now been submitted to the city council. A hearing was set for the end of March, for a bottle store at 2a Trafford St, but it was withdrawn just days beforehand because the applicant wanted to double the size of the shop.

Now, the applicant Sarmarth Rajeshkumar Limbachiya, has publicly notified the updated details, confirming that it will be twice the size but opening hours would be shorter. The site has been controversial, with residents vowing to fight the application in spite of their frustrations.

“We’re still encouraging people to participate. There’s rock solid support,” Trafford St resident Colin Fussell (left) said. Mr Fussell alongside another resident Bruce Tulloch have organised a petition with more than 1100 signatures and counting. “The expansion has just given

They do not want to encourage anti-social behaviour and think there are more options for buying alcohol in the area already. “They are making a profit from public harm and it has to stop,” Mr Tulloch said.

FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK THE CITY’S north-west has certainly been busy this week. The controversial liquor store set for Trafford St has reached yet another milestone as the new application made it back to the city council. Hopefully there are no more speed bumps in that saga – residents just want to find out whether the bottle store gets the green light or not. If anyone out there has a spinal injury, please reach out and contact Cindy Allison. She’s a woman with an amazing story to tell. Cindy has made it through her own battles and there have been many, including cancer. But she is now giving back and helping people regain movement after their spinal injuries through her doctoral studies. Read more about Cindy on page 3. –Julia Evans

PhD student never gave up

In Brief VANDAL UPDATE

The city council has confirmed complaints of vandals at Lake Roto Kohatu and said around $15,000 has been spent this summer alone cleaning up. Kay Holder, city council operations manager for regional parks, said there is ongoing work for redesigning facilities and an upgrade to the entrance is planned. Signage has been installed to provide appropriate behaviour guidelines.

Fashion „„ By Julia Evans TWO TYPES of cancer, a head injury, losing a home – you could have forgiven doctoral student Cindy Allison if she had decided to throw in the towel. But instead, the 56-year-old Canterbury University student has never given up trying to get her PhD in health science. She first enrolled for her course three days before the September 4, 2010, earthquake, which immediately put her studies on hold. Then she managed to get a head injury. “In my second year of study, I fell and hit my head on some rocks and got a head injury,” she said. She was then displaced from her home after the February 22, 2011, earthquake. And finally, if that was not enough, cancer struck. Not once but twice. First it was breast cancer, then melanoma. It was a week before the first class was set to begin last year when a regular mole check provided Ms Allison’s second diagnosis of cancer. “It was only early stages – I didn’t have to have radiotherapy or chemotherapy. But the

Currently seeking people to participate with spinal cord injuries, Ms Allison hopes to recruit people to take part in the course she’s developed based on the Feldenkrais method.

Larger liquor store bid riles resident

  FLAME FILES

Keep calm and patient to help kids locked in car „„ Mark Thomas, fire risk management officer A COUPLE of instances this week of young children locked in cars with the keys in with them. Generally when this occurs mum gets more and more anxious as time goes by. This in turn causes the kids to become agitated and of course the level of distress then ramps further upwards.  Every now and then with children who are either not restrained or are old enough to free themselves, a patient and cool parent can get them to unlock the vehicle from inside.  This happened at the antarctic centre last week after the mum phoned AA, which phoned the Fire Service, which responded.  She then persuaded an obviously bright wee soul to flick the locking mechanism.  They then left and the fire truck turned up to an empty park.  To be fair to mum she apparently phoned AA back so no job turned out to be a good job for our Fire Service friends at the airport. 

Trafford St resident and protestor Bruce Tulloch writes about an application to increase the size of a controversial bottle store proposed for the street LAST October a liquor licence was requested for a store on the corner of Trafford St and Harewood Rd, which would be open until 10pm, seven days a week. In the middle of suburban homes, with other alcohol outlets accessible, there was strong opposition. A petition collected more than 1100 signatures and 36 individual objections were lodged, with support from the local community board, the Anglican, Catholic, Presbyterian and Salvation Army churches and the YMCA. The majority of objectors were prepared to attend the district licensing committee’s hearing on March 29, but a week before this, the applicant applied to double the store size. This required a new application, and the hearing had to be

PROTEST: Residents are opposing an application to open a bottle store on Trafford St.

put off. This revised application was published on Anzac Day, with the hearing date to come.

Doubling the size will only increase the reasons for rejection. While existing objections are carried forward, new objections can be made, provided they are received by Tuesday, May 16. The Sale and Supply of Liquor Act states that sale, supply and consumption of alcohol should be undertaken safely and responsibly, and harm directly or indirectly caused, including any to society generally or the community, should be minimised. Canterbury University research has found close proximity to alcohol outlets is associated with increased serious violent crime, and other ill

effects are well-documented. There has been opposition country-wide to the rash of new suburban liquor stores for good reason. It is very important that the city council listens to the wishes of the community. We have seen the damage caused in Christchurch when the public are ignored, as in the proposed changes to Victoria Square or the fiasco with Redcliffs and other schools. The chaos in the United States, I believe, shows the massive damage when trust and collaboration break down. This case will indicate whether that lesson is understood.

BEN SELBY An artistic slice of New Zealand culture is being served up in the town of Little River. From May 6, Little River Gallery will be exhibiting works by artists Robin Slow and Brian Flintoff. Titled ‘Whare Huruhuru Manu,’ the exhibition of Slow’s lyrical paintings show the cultural stories of Maori past and present with luscious depth using symbols and motifs in precious oxides. Flintoff’s delicately carved instruments in bone and native timbers add to breadth of the exhibition. There is a further dimension to the exhibition, music composed and played by Bob Bickerton, inspired by Robin’s paintings and using Brian’s instruments. CD’s and DVD’s featuring all three artists work are available. Little River Gallery is located in Little River on State Highway 75 between Christchurch and Akaroa.

Anger over maintenance contracts Residents look at doing the work themselves „„ By Charlotte Carter RESIDENTS FRUSTRATED at the lack of maintenance carried out by the city council have decided to take matters into their own hands. The Northwood Residents’ Association says their suburb is suffering from a “maintenance deficit” since the earthquakes and have started a voluntary group to tidy up the area. However, the city council says it has not dropped maintenance levels in the suburb. Association president Clive Smith said the problem started after the February 22, 2011, earthquake. “The standard of maintenance really has dropped in the past few years . . . and we understand the council has had excess expenditure in other places, but now we’ve had enough, we’re over it,” he said. Mr Smith attributes the lapse in maintenance to the system of

using different sub-contractors in the area. But city council acting operations manager neighbourhood and sports parks Jane Lodge said: “The level of service in the local and sports parks maintenance contract has not dropped since the Christchurch earthquakes.” Mr Smith said the association has started recruiting through a Facebook post.

It has asked for people “willing to give some time to improving areas around here.” “You may feel that we shouldn’t need to do this as we pay high enough rates. But city council only have limited budgets for this kind of thing,” the post said. Mr Smith said the association was only trying to raise the idea that they think the standard isn’t as high as it could be, and

that parts of the suburb really do look a bit shabby. Ms Lodge said the city council is willing to work with the residents to help facilitate and assist with park clean up initiatives. • To find out more about the association’s clean up effort, visit www. facebook.com/ NorthwoodResidents Association/

Student music recording programme •From page 1 These music programmes fell by the wayside due to a lack of funding and leaders of the groups involved moving on, Mr Flynn said. “It was a direct result of the earthquake,” he said. But with its funding secured, BeatONE is the first of its kind aimed at getting younger students into learning the art of music production early. “Our programme focuses on the essential elements involved in the writing, recording and production of music,” said course co-ordinator Tom Linklater. It will cover the basics from how to use a microphone properly, right through to producing a professional sounding band or electronic recording. “The intention of the programme is to give the young people of Christchurch the opportunity to learn about the topics we cover, meet others who are interested in exploring these areas, and build a community for creative collaboration,” Mr Linklater said. •Workshops will be run on Mondays after school and on Saturdays.

Cotswold to join cycle programme „„ By Julia Evans COTSWOLD Primary School is raising funds to install new tracks and provide bicycles for pupils. The bikes in schools programme is run across the country to get more children cycling in a safe environment on school grounds. If successful in its fundraising, Cotswold will only be the second school in the city to run the programme. Last year Rawhiti School in North New Brighton installed

three tracks and bought more than 50 bicycles, which associate principal Paula Fleming Connell said is what Cotswold wants as well. She said the school is looking to raise more than $100,000 to complete the project but is well on the way with a $15,000 grant from the New Zealand Transport Agency and $5000 from the Southern Trust. Christchurch bikes in schools project manager Anouk Minnaar said due to the demand for construction work in Christchurch, the quotes have

Maadi Cup winning duo named CBHS beat Waimea, set sights on Burnside in national junior rowing team „„ By Andrew King THE OPENING round of the UC Championship has begun with a number of north-west schools looking to stamp their mark on the competition. Solid work before and after the halftime break allowed Christchurch Boys’ to grab a bonus point victory over Waimea Combined in the opening round of the UC Championship. The defending champions recorded a 52-21 victory at home on Saturday, with coach Rob Smith saying the 15-minute period before and after the break was crucial. “We scored about four or five tries in that period,” Smith said. Now CBHS look towards their upcoming match against close rivals Burnside High. Burnside lost their opening round match against St Thomas 64-5. Burnside first XV manager Matt White said while they started well, they left too much space out wide and were punished for it. Looking ahead, White said CBHS will be tough. “You are playing one of the top schools in the country so you know it will be tough,” he said. St Andrew’s had a bye in the opening round. They will be on

the road for the next three games, the first of which will be against Roncalli-Aoraki in Timaru. Meanwhile, St Bede’s were beaten by “a better team” in their opening match, losing 15-10 to Lincoln High on Saturday. St Bede’s coach Gerry Davidson said Lincoln played the better game. St Bede’s will face Marlborough in Christchurch on Saturday.

„„ By Andrew King THEY TOOK on the best in New Zealand, now rowers Ben Taylor and Thomas Russel will take on the world. The duo have been named in the national junior rowing team. The two 17-year-old St Andrew’s College students were a part of the winning Maadi Cup squad which not only brought back the top prize for the first time in the college’s history, but the Springbok Shield as well. They will row in the four coxless at the junior world rowing championships in Trakai, Lithuania, from August 2-6. Rowing is in Taylor’s blood, the last time the school raised the shield was when his father, Andrew, was in the boat 34 years ago. Now he has been named in the national squad, he said he has one up on his father. “He is really supportive, really interested and completely stoked that I have made the team,” he said. Russel made the team last year and said he was nervous going into the trials, but once he got on the water he just got stuck into his work. “I was more shocked about making it the year before, but I

am still extremely happy to back that up,” he said. Taylor and Russel have been in the boat together for the past four years and both agree having each other there really pushes them to perform better. “You see each other on the water but then spend a bit more time together out of it as well, and that means we really want to push for each other,” Russel said.

Taylor said he has to give credit to coach Dale Maher, who has been the “perfect finishing” coach. “He won seven jubilee cups in his eight years while coaching the Rangi Ruru Girls’ eight, so he knows his stuff,” Taylor said. Both said they are incredibly proud to be able to represent their country in a sport they love.

Get rid of dampness in your house

Now wITH the colder and wetter weather on its way, home owners are focusing on ways to make their homes comfortable, warm and healthy for their families throughout winter. RISING dAmp is an issue that affects many of our older properties which suffer from poor, or no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many people have relocated to homes that suffer from rising damp which can be associated with health problems. Independent tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the ground and enter a house every day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation and musty smells. moulds can produce various allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and very young are especially vulnerable. Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising damp and are there to help. They will come to your damp home and pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete under your timber floored home. Specially adapted for our New Zealand conditions and applications it provides a layer of protection against rising moisture. An unexpected benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed recently, is that many owners of properties which had underfloor foam concrete installed, reported that it also provided protection against liquefaction after the earthquakes. Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote and complimentary appraisal of your underfloor ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or 0508 362626 for more information.

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 n a l a B ure Press on lati i t n e V

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.

Herbs & natural ingredients give powerful

GO-Advanced Omega-PC Fish Oil support for your immune system!

It is well known how important omega-3 fatty acids are to good health. It is estimated most people don’t even get a third of the recommended omega-3 fatty acids on a weekly basis. Countries with a higher amounts of omega-3 in their diet are known to have lower cardiovascular disease and, in many cases, better overall health. Recent research has shown inflammation to be a big part of disease and the ageing process.

Fish oil can help reduce inflammation by providing essential fatty acids required by the body to heal itself and maintain good health. Until now most fish oil only contained omega-3 fatty acids in triglyceride form. Fish, however, naturally contain omega-3 in triglyceride and phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the manufacturing process. GO-Advanced Omega-PC sets new standards in fish oil as it contains omega-3 attached to both triglycerides and phospholipids. Studies have shown GO-Advanced Omega-PC to be far better absorbed, leading to increased levels of vital omega-3 fatty acids in the organs thru giving the potential for more health benefits. GO-Advanced Omega-PC is produced from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish using a new advanced and more natural cold extraction process that better preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. It is manufactured to high GMP standards and is molecularly distilled to remove any containments, toxins and heavy metals. Further info on this revolutionary new fish oil and its benefits is available from the Natural Health Advisers, Naturopath and Medical Herbalist at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy in New Brighton, phone 388 5757. We are always happy to help!

Researchers have shown that certain herbs and natural ingredients can dramatically reduce your chances of succumbing to colds and flu. Formulas like Go Healthy “Go VirDefence” has been based on the latest research and has already proved itself too many. Due to the high potency extracts used in this formula most will find only one or two capsule daily sufficient to keep our immune system at optimum, however at the first sign of any immune attack, e.g. headaches, sore throat, aches etc the dose should be increased to one or two capsules up to three times daily. Most will then find the symptoms will disappear quickly without getting worse. Go Vir-Defence contains the following powerful ingredients: Olive Leaf Extract has become one of the most popular ingredients used in the treatment of immune attacks as it has strong anti-microbial properties that help slow the growth of bacteria and prevent the

replication of viruses. Garlic Extract is effective in combating bacteria, viruses and fungi and supporting the immune system. In general it may be used as a preventative for most infectious conditions, digestive as well as respiratory. The anti-microbial action makes it suitable for treatment of respiratory infections, influenza, recurrent colds and respiratory catarrh. Andrographis Extract has powerful immune enhancing properties and has been shown to help prevent the common cold as well as reduce the duration and severity of the symptoms of the common cold. Echinacea Extract is a natural antibiotic and infection fighter. It helps kill bacteria, viruses and fungi and provides powerful immune support. Pau D’ Arco Extract assists in enhancing the body’s immune system. Citrus Bioflavonoids work with Vitamin C and support the immune system as well as strengthening capillaries and reducing inflammation. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and helps counteract many types of bacteria and viral infections. Elderberry Extract provides nutrients for immune support. Zinc is an essential mineral for the immune system and general health. It is required by every cell in the body. It is common to have sub-optimal levels of Zinc. Zinc possesses anti-viral activity. Generally this all-natural formula is very safe and highly effective without any side effects but due to the high potency extracts used please check with us first if you are on any prescription medication. This formula is also not suitable during pregnancy or lactation. Vir-Defence and further information available from: Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

NOT all FISH OIl IS CreaTed eQUal! ONLY GO OMEGA-PC retains the natural Phospholipids that have been shown to be so beneficial for Good Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL! Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally contain Omega-3 in a triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the manufacturing process. GO OMEGA-PC is produced using a new more natural cold extraction process that better preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. Studies show GO OMEGA-PC offers superior absorption with increased omega-3 fatty acids in organs giving the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC OFFERS: • Superior absorption of vital Omega-3, as shown in research • Advanced new cold extraction better preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish • Naturally contains phospholipids to support cellular health • Contains vitamin D3 to support immune, bone & cardiovascular health

• Supports cardiovascular health - Countries with a higher Omega-3 intake have much lower rates of heart disease • Supports blood circulation, healthy cholesterol & healthy blood pressure • Supports joint health, joint mobility & repair • Supports overall health & wellbeing • Natural anti-inflammatory - can help reduce pain

Device to prevent Take a trip with

snoring Why put up with broken sleep, when help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and dry and raw throats. Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth for comfort, and a follow up service is provided. Denise Lim has been involved with Snores for 22 years and has had a 98% success rate with people using the appliance. Snoring can be a health hazard, causing sleep apnoea, where the person actually stops breathing for short periods. It can cause short-term memory loss, tiredness and contribute to high blood pressure. The Snorex device does not feel restrictive, is noninvasive and carries

a money-back guarantee. Many people are referred by ear, nose and throat specialists, however, anyone can phone for an appointment. For an information pack or to discuss the Snorex further, phone Denise Lim on 377 4318 or check out the website www.snorex.co.nz

Third Aged Tours Taking people aged over 50 on trips around New Zealand and the world for nearly 20 years has earned Third Age Tours a brag book that Director Brenda CorbyYarrall says “businesses would give their eye teeth for.’’ “Taking small groups of 10 – 24 people means I can operate the tour in a relaxed, companionable manner. We have an absolute blast when we’re away. It’s all about having fun”. “Most of my trips are run annually because they’re so popular, but I’m always adding new destinations - like “Sicily, South Italy & Vatican” + “Cuba”, as people ask for them.’’ Brenda checks out all accommodation before booking it, and ensures the party spends at least a few nights at each place. “That way you don’t feel like you’re living out of a suitcase.’’ Many clients now have made over 20 tours with us, one has completed a whopping 27 tours. “My clients tell me they keep coming back

because of the size of the groups and our relaxed manner. My motto is ‘There are no strangers, only friends waiting to meet.’ We gather together for breakfast at 8.30am which sets us up for the day and everybody thinks is a very civilised hour.’’ “I organise incredible trips at incredible prices. Look around, you can’t find better for all we include”. For more information, phone 03 379 3799 or 03 312 7050 or email her on sunshineone@xtra.co.nz.

Denture technicians keep abreast of industry developments As registered members of the New Zealand Dental Council, Ryan Carlton and his fellow technicians at Dentures Plus in Innes Road are required to undertake verified training at various courses every year, to upskill and keep abreast of new developments in the industry. “For example, our technicians Thomas Gu and Nicole Yee will be attending a two-day course later this year on the fitting of first-time dentures,” Ryan says. In addition, Nicole has recently spent four weeks in India as part of a course she is undertaking on maxilo facial work, which deals with artificial eyes, ears and noses. “This is a service we may potentially offer in the future,” Ryan says. Ryan himself has recently returned from the International Dental Show, which was held in Cologne, Germany. “It’s the largest trade show in the world for the industry, with manufacturers and suppliers from all over the world showcasing their products. There were over 2300 stands – it was really eyeopening.” Ryan says he was particularly interested in how digital technology is being incorporated into dentistry, for example 3D printing being used at different stages of denture manufacture such as the crown and bridge.

“It’s still in the very early stages, and it needs more development, but that’s where it’s heading,” Ryan says. He believes that in the future, people that make and fit dentures will be seen as architects rather than technicians, with patients being able to download the pattern for their dentures the architect has designed on computer, and print them on a 3D machine. In the meantime, he emphasises the importance of keeping dentures clean. Dentures Plus offers a full range of products for denture cleaning including denture cleaners, brushes and denture baths for soaking the dentures. Ryan particularly recommends Caldent denture cleaner, as it is non-abrasive and effectively removes stains, calculus and plaque. “It works wonders,” he says. “Years of stains and plaque can be removed with this product.” It can be purchased through the Dentures Plus website, www. denturesplus.co.nz, for delivery anywhere in Christchurch and throughout the country. Dentures Plus, 396 Innes Road, is open Monday to Thursday 8am-5pm and Friday 8am-2pm. To make an appointment for a consultation on denture fitting or repair, phone 385 5517.

Hear the blues, feel the emotion FOLLOWING on from the success of his ‘e Story of the Blues’ Show & Supper in March, modern day Blues guitarist, Ryan Neville is set to do it all again next weekend before heading off to gigs in USA. Nashville Tennessee, Las Vegas and Austin Texas are amongst the places Ryan has performed over the years. His love of blues inspired him to assemble his current show, ‘e Story of the Blues’. A masterful and colourful stage show incorporating live musicians, video, light, and sound, ‘e Story of the Blues’ takes you on a journey from the famous Robert Johnson Crossroads to the backwaters of the Mississippi Delta. “We share the stories of the famous Chicago Blues men and woman that time will not erase!” says Ryan. Four seasoned local musicians complete Ryan’s band, e Midnight Blues Band’ Emmalene Rose Sparey (vocals); Chantelle Marie Rakich (piano, keys, vocals); Chris Farmer (drums, percussion, vocals); Steve Hill (bass guitar). “Together we weave the tapestry through the decades of the greatest musical entertainers of our time,” says Ryan. “Hear the blues, feel the
