THEY ARE ruthless, aggressive, and have represented New Zealand at 30 international championships around the world – but you probably haven’t heard of them. Meet Jenny Wilkinson and Shirley Newton, Christchurch’s bridge playing dream-team.

They are now New Zealand’s longest-standing bridge partnership, playing together since 1989. This year they will be off again, flying to South Korea at the end of the month to compete in the Asia Pacific Bridge Federation Championships, then to France in August for the World Bridge Teams Championships. •Turn to page 4

Schools warn about ‘revenge fantasy’ series „„ By Bridget Rutherford CHRISTCHURCH principals are worried about the impact controversial American series 13 Reasons Why will have on students. They have sought advice from school guidance counsellors on how to deal with the impact the series may be having on students. Some have written to parents and staff to make them aware of the R18 show, which can be streamed online, and how they can respond to it. The Netflix series tells the story of Hannah Baker, a high school student who commits suicide. She leaves behind tapes outlining the reasons that lead to her decision. The series, which is based on a 2007 Jay Asher novel, also deals with other highly sensitive issues. Christchurch Boys’ High School’s letter to parents said it was concerned the “revenge fantasy” series could lead to a “suicide contagion” and advised parents to encourage young people not to watch it. Headmaster Nic Hill said he did not think the students should watch it – but it was likely they would. •Turn to page 3


Thursday May 4 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

The highly controversial but very popular Netflix series 13 Reasons Why has principals and parents concerned. And it is no wonder as it deals with some very intense issues. Even though it comes with an R18 censorship rating, it is a streamed series making it highly accessible. Principals have sought advice from counsellors on how to deal with issues that may arise as a result and, hopefully, their advice may assist you. On a much lighter note, tomorrow exactly 100 years ago, The Star reported a very “solemn” event in the city (page 4) – the election of the first woman city councillor. It was described as a “terrible prospect”. It is a bit of a chuckle, the description of the poor lads “gloomily debating” what Mrs Ada Wells should be called. We have two great longreads this week, Aranui’s changing attitude to police (page 13-14) and a look at our new rebuild boss MP Nicky Wagner (page 15). Hei kona, Shelley Robinson

At a Glance THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

ECO-FRIENDLY TRUCK

This week in history saw Canterbury University complete its move from the city to its Ilam campus (right) on May 1, 1975. On May 2, 1872, the new St Michael’s Anglican Church was opened. On May 3, 1851, George Gould opened a shop in Christchurch. The business eventually became part of Pyne Gould Guinness and Co. On May 3, 1985, 6000 people rallied against the All Black tour of South Africa. On May 4, 1932, a strike started at Christchurch Tramway. One of the most bitter in the city’s history, it lasted 16 days. There were many injuries and arrests among the strikers. The tram sheds were barricaded with barbed wire, and trams were fitted with wire mesh screens over their windows to ward off attacks. On May 4, 1981, the southern arterial (Brougham St to Curletts Rd) was opened. On May 5, 1970, Canadian Premier, Pierre Trudeau visited the city.

Christchurch is set to get its first electric rubbish truck later this year, as part of a sustainability trial. The first electric rubbish truck has already arrived in Auckland as part of the trial, run by Waste Management and Countdown. They plan to progressively upgrade trucks from diesel to electric over the next five years.

‘Revenge fantasy’ series warning •From page 1 “The awful thing about this programme is it shows some benefit to suicide. The sad thing about suicide is we don’t get to come back and say I told you so,” Mr Hill said. The letter to parents said as “teenagers will often do the opposite of what we ask”, it was important to talk to young people about some of the themes in an “open discussion.” Christchurch Girls’ High School Nic Hill principal Pauline Duthie said it also sent an email to parents. It urged them to check with their daughters about the show and its important issues, if they had seen it, she said. She said it was harder to monitor, given it could be watched online. But Shirley Boys’ High School headmaster John Laurenson said: “It’s a created issue, not a real issue.” It comes after a recently

released study, Young New Zealanders Viewing Sexual Violence, raised concerns some television shows featuring violence desensitised youth to it. It looked at episodes of Criminal Minds, Orange is the New Black and The Vampire Diaries. START, a Christchurch service for abused children, took part. Manager Maggy Tai Rakena said it was concerning how many explicit scenes were depicted in popular shows. She said it could de-sensitise youth to violence, and many

parents may not even know their kids were watching it. “There is no doubt that pornography and sexually explicit stuff is causing problems for the people we see.” Linwood College principal Richard Edmundson said the school’s guidance counselling team sent an email to all staff about 13 Reasons Why. “My particular concern is that it’s making something which can appear to glamorise and normalise something.” He said the show could not be ignored.

In Brief CAMPAIGNER DIES Disability sector campaigner Alexia Pickering passed away last Thursday, aged 87. She was born with spina bifida, and was a tireless campaigner in the disability sector, including introducing the idea of accessible parking spaces initially trialled in Christchurch. In 1996 she was made a member of the Queen’s Service Order for services to the community, and in 2005, was made a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit for her services to people with disabilities. Her late husband, Neville Pickering was a Labour MP, before being a city councillor, and mayor of Christchurch from 1971-1974. NURSES FIND JOBS More Christchurch nursing students have found jobs this year than anywhere else in the country. Of the 109 Ara Institute of Canterbury nursing students who graduated last year, 95 per cent found work as nurses. The national average nursing graduate employment rate was 73 per cent. WALKING TRACK SAFE Geotechnical engineers and abseilers spent yesterday morning trying to make a rocky bluff above Dyers Pass Rd and the Harry Ell walking track safe. Abseilers used a crowbar to pry loose an unstable boulder. It had come lose because of the water dropped on it during the aerial assault on the Port Hills fire. APPLICATION REVISED 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 days before because the applicant Sarmarth Rajeshkumar Limbachiya wanted to double the size, with shorter opening hours. It has now been publicly notified. Residents are still vowing to fight the application.

News Card duo well travelled •From page 1 Through competing, Mrs Newton said the pair had been able to have some amazing adventures around the world, from riding camels in the desert to exploring markets in Asia. Their usual policy was “what goes on tour stays on tour,” she said. But they had plenty of stories – like one experience while taking a bus through a “dubious” neighbourhood in Tunisia in North Africa. “Someone pinched my bum. I turned around and it was the oldest, wrinkliest old man. I elbowed Jenny, and she turned around and just burst out laughing,” she said. Although they had plenty of fun while on tour, during the tournaments they stayed very focused, she said. The pair first competing together in 1989, when they made the World Championships in Perth. Since then, they have played for New Zealand as partners almost every year, and had steadily improved, she said. Their best performance was a fifth placing in the World Games last year in Poland.

Historic election recognised „„ By Caitlin Miles IT WAS called “solemn” news – the most important item of the week. Though it sounded like someone had died, or there had been a great tragedy to hit the city, it was in fact the announcement of the first woman city councillor in Christchurch. Tomorrow marks the day, 100 years ago, The Star reported that women’s rights campaigner and Labour candidate Ada Wells was elected to the city council. And it appeared that the biggest problem the city had with it, was that lads around the city council tables would have to change their smoking habits and figure out what to call her. The lads, according to the article, “were found gathered in little knots gloomily debating whether a lady member could be a called ‘councillor’ or . . . ‘counciloress’ or ‘councillorine’. Then the worst part. “The council has been a masculine organisation for so long that many of its unwritten rules will have to go by the board now. “For instance, there is that humanitarian rule that members may smoke ‘in committee’ and

after 10.30pm in open council.” Heathcote city councillor Sara Templeton had a bit of laugh when she came upon the article – which was shown to her by a city council staff member’s daughter. “Looking back it seems so silly that they were ‘gloomy’ and confused about what we now take for granted and see as completely normal,” she said. On May 11, Cr Templeton is organising a morning tea and ceremony to recognise and celebrate the historic moment. Mrs Wells didn’t seem phased by the blatant sexism, she was a

Woolston man dies from burns

PUG BOAT. Four-year-old pug Nixon has serious spinal issues and lost the use of his legs. An underwater treadmill helps his recovery. PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER

Water gets Nixon walking again „„ By Ashleigh Monk NIXON IS a remarkable wee dog. The four-year-old pug has had spinal issues for almost two years, and after surgery last month, Nixon lost all sensation in his back legs. Owners Josie and Dan Mathieson were “devastated” when he was given just a 50 per cent chance of walking again.

But, Nixon has been dubbed the “Benjamin Button” of the dog world, after, for the first time in three weeks, he took his first steps and defied the medical odds. “No one really knows how Nixon is actually standing and walking right now,” said animal physiotherapy technician Oliver Gooday. He said Nixon couldn’t go to the toilet on his own, and

needed monitoring to make sure he didn’t twist his spine. Mrs Mathieson said Nixon was “like her child” and she was devastated when he became paralysed. “It was really upsetting. I felt a bit responsible in a way,” she said. “But a few days after [the surgery] he started to get back to himself. I realised that even though he couldn’t walk, it

didn’t seem to bother him too much.” Nixon went to physio about four times a week and even wore a pug-sized life jacket as he walked in the underwater treadmill to strengthen his legs. Nixon would continue to have treatment at the clinic, and Mr Gooday hoped the pug would be “bounding around in no time”. •Watch the video at www.star.kiwi

„„ By Andrew King A MAN who suffered severe burns after an accidental garage fire in Woolston has died. The 50-year-old man was flown to Middlemore Hospital on April 12 but succumbed to his injuries on April 26. Police said he had been living in the garage that caught fire. A neighbour, who did not want to be named, said there were about “10 explosions” before the smoke started billowing into the air. Fire crews extinguished the blaze and then police and fire investigators started to determine a cause. Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Worner said the cause of the fire was accidental. He said the man had been living in the garage, surrounded by his father’s possessions, who had recently died. After the fire the victim left the property and went to a nearby address on Hobson St where an ambulance was called and he was taken to hospital in a critical condition.

Good reason to follow tradition

„„ By Bridget Rutherford EMMA YATES’ grandmother used to paint her initials on the bottom of her crockery collection in nail varnish so she could keep track of it. Lerline Morris lost her battle to breast cancer aged just 57, and now Ms Yates has her collection, and adds new items to it. As a tribute, she will use it in her Pink Ribbon afternoon tea on May 21 to raise money and awareness for the Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand. “The one thing that’s special to me is that the china has her initials on the bottom that she’s done in nail varnish.” Mrs Morris painted her initials so when she took it to her women’s division functions, she would know they were hers, Ms Yates said. Ms Yates, now 39, had two fibroadenoma lumps removed when she was 29 and 31, and goes for a check up every year now. She said it was so important for women of any age to be aware of the breast cancer symptoms and to get checked. “I think a lot of people think it will never happen to them.” She said she was “very lucky”. Last year she hosted a breakfast

with a friend – but this year would be her first individual event. She chose to do an afternoon tea because it was more in line with her business The Traveling Tea Party. “It’s a good idea to get a bunch of girlfriends or colleagues together to have a fun event that also supports a good cause.” Pink Ribbon events will run throughout May. More than 3000 Kiwis are diagnosed with breast cancer a year, with 600 dying of the disease. Proceeds from the events will go towards breast cancer research, and help provide awareness education and support for patients. Last year’s Pink Ribbon events raised $1.7 million. •If you would like to sign up to host a Pink Ribbon event, visit https:// pinkribbonbreakfast.co.nz/ TRIBUTE: Emma Yates will host a Pink Ribbon afternoon tea this month with her late grandmother’s crockery to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.

Treatment could speed breast cancer recovery „„ By Gabrielle Stuart UP TO 251 Christchurch women could benefit from a new breast cancer treatment being considered, a study has found. New technology allows radiotherapy to be done during breast cancer surgery, rather than being drawn out over several weeks. It means patients can be treated and recover faster. It is already being used in a private clinic in Auckland, and several groups have been campaigning to have it publicly funded. The study was commissioned by the Ministry of Health to look at the cost of funding the treatment, and estimate the demand for it. It estimated about 461 women across New Zealand would use the treatment, but it could vary between 80 and 1505. That included between 14 and 251 women in Christchurch. It estimated the cost of investing in the treatment would be between $3.72 million and $4.72 million, but it could also save significant amounts over 10 years by reducing the amount of time it took to treat women.

Pensioners still fighting over fence „„ By Sarla Donovan THE STOUSH over a fence in a Burwood retirement village looks set to continue. Retirees at the Sanctuary Villas, Burwood had been facing off for six years over a humble trellis and wooden fence. Patsy Clegg had the fence built outside her property, upsetting neighbours Kathleen and Glyn Hardy. The fence borders a private access road used by residents and the Hardys claimed it was illegal and dangerous. Mrs Clegg has now agreed to shift the fence back from the road kerbing, but wants the Hardys to sign off on the plan before starting any work. “I don’t want the Hardys having another go at me. I’ve got no faith that they’re not going to.” But Kathleen Hardy told The Star until the fence went back to where it was when they moved into Sanctuary Villas in 2011, they won’t be signing anything. “We can’t properly judge what it will be like (from a drawing).”

Find it

24/7 STILL FIGHTING: Sanctuary Villas retirees Kathleen and Glyn Hardy are refusing to sign off on their neighbour’s plan to shift a fence they say is dangerous.

She had legal advice that if the Hardy’s signed approval for the fence alteration and it didn’t end up going where they thought it would, “we’ve got no comeback.”

Youth ask for police racial bias committee „„ By Gabrielle Stuart A GROUP of Christchurch Pasifika youth are campaigning for a police racial bias committee to be set up to investigate allegations of police discrimination. About 250 young people gathered in Christchurch last week for the Pacific Youth Leadership and Transformation Council, to discuss issues in the community and potential solutions. PYLAT chairman Josiah Tualamali’i said many shared stories of situations where they believed they were unfairly treated or discriminated against by police because of their race. Most did not report it, because they did not feel they would be taken seriously, he said. “Why is it a lot of Maori and Pasifika talk about the police like they have to be fearful of something, when others of different ethnicities don’t seem to have that anxiety?” he said. “I have been pulled over a few times, not for anything I’ve done wrong,

but when I’m driving a car which has five or six Pacific young people in it. We immediately get a bit nervous, we sit up straighter, we are more articulate with what we’re saying, because we’re trying not to give them any reason to detain us.” Pasifika law student Anatea Prince, who helped draw up the recommendations, said a lot of people told stories at the forum about their personal interactions with police. She said many did not know about the Independent Police Conduct Authority or how to make a complaint. Canterbury Maori, Pacific and Ethnic Affairs district manager Inspector Hirone Waretini said he could not comment on specific cases when a com-

plaint had not been made. But he said he was open to speaking with the young people directly to discuss the issues. Valuing diversity was one of the core values of NZ Police, he said. “Our communities are diverse, with an ever-changing population. These changes create a responsibility on police to encourage and grow the diversity and cultural competency of our staff, to ensure we are responsive to the communities we serve,” he said. The police already had liaison officers working with different ethnic communities, an emphasis on diversity in recruitment campaigns, and training for recruits in how to communicate and interact with diverse communities, he

Policing changes PYLAT youth asked for: •Consistent diversity hiring practices to increase Pasifika representation within police •Compulsory cultural awareness and engagement training for all police officers and staff •A racial bias committee established, co-led by the Police, Pasifika, and Māori Leaders, to keep police accountable and transparent, and review arrests and prosecutions

Aranui’s changing attitude to police

Six months ago, the Aranui Neighbourhood Policing Team was set up to try to combat crime and distrust of police in the community. Reporter Gabrielle Stuart visited Aranui to ask residents how the police were doing SITTING ON her front doorstep, Denise sees a lot of what goes on in Aranui. Wrapped in her dressing gown for warmth, coffee beside her, her view on Friday was peaceful – a few children playing in Wainoni Park, workmen busy on the sports field, and neighbours wandering

past heading to the library or community centre. But it wasn’t always like that. She also sees vandalism, fights, and plenty of blue and red flashing lights. She regularly hears young people screaming and fighting late at night in the park. •Turn to page 14

News Building relationships with the people •From page 13 Two weeks ago, a policeman knocked on her door. After 35 years living in the community, she had learnt that usually meant nothing good – a search for someone, a crime committed, or a tragedy in the neighbourhood. But this was different. She said the policeman was friendly, introduced himself and asked about her thoughts on the neighbourhood and what the police could do better in it. She said the relationship with police had been rocky for a long time in Aranui, but she hoped that would change. “It’s good to have them around, for our youth. And they’re doing really well, you’ve got to hand it to them,” she said. The Star spoke to residents around the park, and all but one had spoken directly with someone from the policing team. Almost all the comments were positive. Some had played a community v police rugby game – where the police were apparently thoroughly thrashed, but earnt a lot of respect anyway. The policing team manned the barbecue at local events, and walked local children to school in the mornings. They also patrol differently – they now ride around the community on cycles, instead of in cars, to appear less threatening. Policing team leader Sergeant Toni Carroll said they were trying to do things differently. “We’re trying to get rid of that perception that if they see police it’s a bad thing,” she said. By the numbers, the results are not looking good. The crime rate in Aranui has risen over the months the team has been working. In the first three months of this year, there were 73 crimes in Aranui reported to the police, up from 58 at the same time the year before.

COMMUNITY: A-Town Boxing Gym owner Jamie Roberts, pictured with his boxing “family”, said the new policing team had treated them with respect. Left – Constables Brad Hagerty, Jules Atkinson and Pete Evans patrol the streets of Aranui on cycles, in an effort to be more approachable.

But Sergeant Carroll said this was expected. Because they were building more trust in police, more people would feel confident in reporting crimes, she said. “When we were surveying around Wainoni Park, people were telling us teens were often misusing the park, yelling and screaming at all hours and breaking glass. We said: ‘Did you ring the police?’ None of them had. But the next weekend we got four

calls about disorder at the park,” she said. She said the teenagers had scattered by the time a police car arrived. But the policing team was still able to make sure the glass was cleaned up, and was working with the city council to improve lighting and trim bushes where it was happening, she said. Of the crimes recorded this year, 43 were burglaries, and 10 thefts. Seven were assaults, and

13 were illegal use of a motor vehicle. Rather than decide themselves what issues to focus on, the policing team has been surveying residents, asking what was important to them. Sergeant Carroll said they had visited about 1400 homes so far, about 90 per cent of the houses in the area. Common issues had emerged. Many residents were worried about the young people hanging out in groups at the shops or the park and getting into trouble, and hoped the police could get alongside them, she said. While they are trying to build a positive relationship with the community, she said it would not

stop them coming down hard on crime. But helping someone who had committed a crime turn their life around could be easier when they already had a good relationship with police, she said. “We don’t want to ruin their lives by arresting them. We want to stop them offending, so they have better opportunities as they grow older,” she said. A-Town Boxing Gym owner Jamie Roberts described himself as “a little bit rough around the edges”, with most interactions with police in his past on the wrong side of the law. But he said the police had treated him with respect, even working alongside him on a new project in schools, teaching children control, responsibility and respect through boxing skills. He said people in Aranui were suspicious of newcomers, and it had taken him more than a year to be accepted when he moved to the community about 20 years ago. But the police had already won over many people, he said. “They’re not coming out and asking for our names and date of birth. Instead they’re asking our names and how they can help,” he said. Mr Roberts bumped into one of the officers on the team picking up rubbish in the park one morning. He was also impressed by the reaction he saw police officers receive at Haeata school recently. “The kids were coming up and saying morning officer, and shaking their hands. It was pretty cool,” he said. Sergeant Carroll said the local children had been quiet and reserved around the team at the beginning, but over time they were warming. “There are still some hard core ones who won’t say hi, but you can tell that even they want to, now. We’ll keep going until they say hi,” she said.

Can Wagner rise to the challenge? New rebuild boss Nicky Wagner has been dubbed the “personable politician”. But has she got the goods to finish the job that Gerry Brownlee started? Bridget Rutherford reports IT WOULD be hard to find two more different political personalities. Within minutes of speaking to National Christchurch Central MP Nicky Wagner (right), you know she’s a glass-half-full kind of person. The former schoolteacher turned businesswoman and Environment Canterbury councillor, is popular and personable with her “grass roots” attitude to politics. She clawed her way to win the Christchurch Central seat in 2011, through hard yakka, and pounding the pavements. Christchurch’s future clearly excites her. Former rebuild boss and now Foreign Affairs Minister Gerry Brownlee, on the other hand, was a different type of politician. He’s not afraid to be critical – and then sometimes having to apologise. Infamously, he called former Mayor Bob Parker a “clown.” He later phoned Parker to mend fences. He said in 2012 some landowners after the earthquake were “carping and moaning” about their situation. During his six-year tenure overseeing the city’s rebuild, Gerry he’s been accused of not Brownlee communicating and failing to listen. But many say he had a role too big for one person. It’s been more than a week since Prime Minister Bill English announced Mrs Wagner would take over Mr Brownlee’s role as Minister Supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration. Already she’s copped flak. Critics say at number 22 on National’s list, she will be powerless because she is not a Cabinet

Minister, and therefore the Government was walking away from Christchurch. Former mayor Garry Moore said Mrs Wagner had been given a “poisoned chalice” because everything was in place. “Being outside Cabinet will mean Wagner will have to sit, Lazarus-like, in the hall outside the Cabinet meeting room hoping that she will be able to influence the way things are being managed in Christchurch.

day each week to be in Christchurch, she said. But Canterbury University political science associate professor Bronwyn Hayward said Mrs Wagner would have more resources and support if she was a Cabinet Minister. “I think it is a concern that the Government does not see the need to sustain the focus on Christchurch or why even they

‘Being outside Cabinet will mean Nicky Wagner will have to sit, Lazarus-like, in the hall outside the Cabinet meeting room hoping that she will be able to influence the way things are being managed in Christchurch.’ – Garry Moore, former mayor “Cabinet decisions will be passed out the door to her as a recipient, just like most of us in Christchurch have experienced for years.” By comparison Labour MP Megan Woods, who has the Christchurch issues portfolio, is number five on her party’s list. But Mrs Wagner said whenever a decision about Christchurch was made in Cabinet, she would be there. It also meant she would have an extra

need MPs like Wagner in their inner circle.” She said Mr Brownlee was not the “right personality” for the city and Mrs Wagner had the ability to restore relationships – but it might be too late. “He [Brownlee]. . . tended to work with a fairly narrow community of loyal supporters and similar interests.” She said Mr Brownlee had a large workload, and perhaps was asked to perform the role for too long.

He was a “polarising figure” who exacerbated anger and frustration, she said. In comparison, Mrs Wagner was popular and personable, she said. Mrs Wagner said she wants to keep the ball rolling, and build on the “tough” decisions Mr Brownlee had made and “copped flack” for, including the residential red zone’s future. Labour’s earthquake recovery spokeswoman Megan Woods said she had “grave concerns” that Canterbury was slipping down the Government’s priority agenda. “Canterbury doesn’t have a place at the table when decisions are being made.” Mrs Wagner said the city was in a great position compared to 15 years ago where you could “shoot a gun down Cashel Mall at 11am” some days. “Who would have believed down the track we’re in such a strong position?” She said following the February 22, 2011, earthquake, their original expectations on how quickly the rebuild could happen were not realistic. “That was the biggest challenge. “We’ve got the momentum going in the right direction.”

Canterbury spirit shines THE NATION watched in shock at the events that unfolded in Canterbury in 2010 and 2011, changing the region forever. Hundreds of central city buildings needed to be demolished, regional landmarks were destroyed, thousands of homes suffered earthquake damage, the level of land damage was unprecedented and the future seemed uncertain. For more than six years I’ve held the role of overseeing the region’s earthquake recovery. Rebuilding Christchurch been an enormous undertaking for all those involved but we’ve managed to stave off the gloomy predictions about population flight, high unemployment and the collapse of the regional economy. I’ve been genuinely humbled at the strength and determination of Canterbury – homeowners, business owners, investors, developers, families and communities alike. While I’ve never been a fan of the word ‘resilient’, it does describe the spirit of our beautiful region, which I’m proud to call home. Since late 2010, I’ve worked with countless people from around the country and overseas

Gerry Brownlee

who have all shared the same vision; that Canterbury will build back better than it was before. There’s been the odd disagreement along the way – many of them publicly documented – but that’s par for the course.

I want to thank every single person who has backed Canterbury’s recovery. Every single person who chose to stay and work in the region, every single person who chose to open a new business or build a new building and every single person who chose to study here – you are why our city is more vibrant and prosperous than ever before. Canterbury is in a strong position and I have no doubt my colleague Nicky Wagner will continue the good work that is already happening in and around the city. While my ministerial attention will now have a more global focus in the Foreign Affairs portfolio, I remain committed to the Ilam electorate as their local MP and to Christchurch as my home. •Gerry Brownlee is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

The Lions tour bought lots of money here last time. This time,

none. Plus none from the World Cup either. Cherry Cornelius – We don’t need this waste of ratepayer money. Just now, there are much more important things needed like decent parking at the hospital. Alan Wenmouth – The only “burden to ratepayers” will be if we delay building our new stadium any longer. Green light to go. Chris Farrier – We don’t need this – it’s a total waste of money. We already have a replacement, why do we need another. Get real and grow up.

table who will fight Canterbury’s corner is no big deal. I disagree. I want to know that every time health funding, especially mental health funding, is discussed that someone is thumping the table

and telling Ministers about how bad it is down here. I want someone there who will share the examples of our new entrants starting school with developmental delays and forcefully arguing for much needed additional mental health support down here. The job in Canterbury is nowhere near finished. There’s buildings, roads and infrastructure to complete but also the critical job of ensuring that our people are also recovering and regenerating. The test of leadership for the new Minister is to be a staunch advocate for us on these issues and reminding her colleagues this region is still a priority. Labour is committed seeing the job through with Canterbury. We know the job is far from done and our region will be a priority for a Labour government. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

More to Rarotonga than the beaches „„ By Mike Yardley PLANNING an escape to Rarotonga? Tear yourself away from the beach to dig a little deeper at the roots of the island. Venture along the back road and enter a timeless world of free-range harmony in abundance. On my various forays along the back road, I feasted on freshlyplucked pawpaw, mango, guava, bananas and star-fruit, bursting from the roadside trees. Scenically insatiable, I marvelled at the colourfully-painted hinterland homes and the dense plantations, bracketed by Rarotonga’s serrated peaks which exude a Jurassic Park aura. There are many ways to get a flavour for Rarotonga’s vast green heart, including taking a ride with the recently launched Tik-e Tours. These tropical three-wheeler luxury tuk-tuk limousines are fully electric, so unlike the racket they make on the streets of Bangkok, these beauties will glide you around Rarotonga’s ravishing interior in virtual silence. My driver/guide was a worldly elder called Mata, a natural and charismatic raconteur. Throughout my tour, every passer-by warmly waved out to Mata, or stopped to chat. One chap we talked to was busy cultivating noni fruit by hand. Lauded by locals for centuries for its numerous health benefits, noni juice has taken the world by

storm and is the Cook Islands’ No 1 agricultural export product. My two-hour tour traversed a slew of insights, including stops at ancient marae sites, a rendezvous with Government House, the magnificently carved new war memorial in honour of the 500 local soldiers who fought in World War 1, Tinomana Palace and the sacred Great Migration site of Avana Passage. Operating for just over a year, the people behind Tik-e Tours are Cook Islander Tania Farman and her husband, Karl, who have swapped corporate life in Auckland for the Rarotongan lifestyle, while injecting an innovative and eco-friendly tourism product into the mix. www.tik-etours.com For more heartland hi-jinks I jumped behind the wheel of a Rarotonga Buggy Tour. These grunty off-road vehicles are a

cross between a kart and a beach buggy, highly manoeuvrable and hardy. They’re even kitted out with roll cages if it all goes badly wrong. These wildly popular buggy tours have been making quite a splash for two years. Our conga line of yellow buggies looked like a slithering giant snake. The biggest mud pits awaited us at the site of ill-fated and abandoned Sheraton Hotel development, where the grounds have been reworked as an off-road buggy track, which is where I got utterly splattered in mud, as we ripped up and down the mounds of the track. Our touring route also romped into the hinterland and the Turangi Valley, thickly carpeted with tropical rainforest. Seriously good fun if you like to get down and dirty. www.rarobuggytours. com

Swathed in jungle-like tropical foliage, the environmentallyfriendly embrace of Ikurangi EcoRetreat is a winning new roost in Rarotonga. Established by Luana and Matt Scowcroft last year, this thoughtfully created offering treads a very light footprint. You’ll notice the sustainability elements wherever you turn. The toilets are self-composting, the beautiful toiletries by Ashley & Co are studiously organic, the natural and biodegradable cleaning products, a sustainable waste management system, all materials are sustainably sourced and there’s free use of bicycles to go exploring. Being uber-boutique, the experience is absolutely distinctive, personalised and ultra-attentive. Luana says: “We think of it as a unique combination of the allure of a safari with the romance of the

South Seas, where luxury meets sustainability.” I loved sleeping in my luxury safari tent, stunningly furnished, and perched on a deck to allow airflow. A tropical breakfast was delivered to my deck each morning and I adored the locally-roasted, fair trade plunger coffee. I awoke each morning to the “Tail of the Sky,” Mt Ikurangi, gilded in the glow of the rising Rarotongan sun, and I revelled in the novelty of showering in the open-air bathroom, flanked by swaying palms and bountiful banana trees.

FAST FACTS

•Set amid the bountiful hinterland beauty, but just minutes from the beach, Ikurangi Eco-Resort is a masterclass in sustainable hospitality in paradise. Five per cent of Ikurangi Eco Retreat profits go to local conservation initiatives. www.ikurangi.com I do love how Rarotonga is replete with colourful roadside stalls brimming with freshly picked produce and alluring treats, like organic fruit ice cream. They directly help villagers supplement their incomes. It’s a great way to give back. www.feelraro.co.nz

E WI N LOV I L L FA

„„ By Henri Ham I KNOW it’s easy and not too expensive to buy broad beans at the supermarket, but I enjoy eating them fresh from the garden. They taste great and it’s nice knowing exactly what’s taken place during the growing process. Broad beans are one of my favourite varieties to grow. Like most other vegetables, you can grow broad beans from seed (actually it’s the bean itself). But I recommend growing from seedlings. Doing this shortens the time before harvest (around six less weeks) but, more importantly, takes out a lot of the hard work. Once the root systems are well formed (yet still separate from each other), almost guaranteed they will grow well. Once you’ve got your seedlings, you need to find somewhere to grow them. I like to grow mine in a raised vegetable garden, but they also grow well in

FRESH: Broad beans like full sun or just partial shade.

pots. Make sure it’s full sun or partial shade where you plant. Broad beans are pollinated by bees, so it’s helpful to grow them near a beefriendly plant like lavender, rosemary or cornflowers. It pays to check the pH level of your soil. Broad beans like the soil to be around 5.5 to 6.5pH.

Plant Now & Save!

Blueberries If you love to pick and eat fresh, have you tried growing your own blueberries? We have all heard of blueberries, but what a lot of us do not know is that they are easy to grow. Blueberries are a wonder food and are a fantastic addition to the garden whether you grow them as specimen plants in containers, or as a low hedge. Blueberries like soil which is slightly acidic with plenty of nitrogen. A slow-release fertiliser, such as Oderings Total Replenish in spring before the new growth appears is ideal. You may not realise this, but some blueberry varieties can be killed if there is too much calcium present in the soil, therefore avoid lime fertiliser and gypsum. Water is vital for the full development of your berries, which swell rapidly in the last two weeks of ripening. Lack of water can mean a poor crop and dark, undersized berries. While blueberries are resistant to most diseases, it is prudent to spray to prevent mildew and cover them to protect the ripening berries from birds. The plants are hardy to minus four degrees, although

frost will damage flowers. They can also suffer from iron and magnesium deficiencies. If your plant leaves are a reddish-yellow colour, especially near the edges it is most likely a magnesium deficiency and if the leaves turn yellow with green veins it is most likely an iron deficiency. Knowing how to prune blueberries is important, because fruit is borne on last season’s wood and the most vigorous wood bears the largest fruit. The flower buds that will produce next year’s crop develop on the outer part of this year’s growth in late summer as stems mature. Minimum pruning consists of the removal of dead or damaged wood, any weak growth or twiggy old branches. Remove some of the oldest branches after four to five years to encourage new growth. While light pruning is possible year around, winter is the best time for heavy pruning. To read more, pop in store or online for our copy of the Oderings Gardening Guide Vegetables.

Autumn

Beautiful broad beans Not sure what the pH level of your soil is? Most garden centres sell kits, alternatively there are also companies which will test your soil for a small fee. If the pH level of your soil could go higher, try adding a little bit of lime from your local garden centre. If you’re not sure of the pH level, it wouldn’t hurt to add a little bit of lime anyway. Then simply dig a little hole and plant each seedling around 15cm apart in rows approximately 30cm apart. Once the plants are around 1m you can stake them individually but I prefer to put a stake at either end of the rows and loop a big piece of string around the whole lot to keep them growing together. Your plants will lean against each other and grow across the ground. The seedlings will take around eight to 12 weeks from planting to produce beans ready for harvesting. Harvest the beans when the pods are around 75100mm.

A cappella group on road to stardom

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding CITY COUPLE Malia and Julian Hay have never been afraid to take risks. It was just over a year ago they delved into the unknown, setting up the city’s  first ever vocal academy specialising in contemporary a cappella singing – Voices Co.  The endeavour has proven to be successful for the Linwood pair who have produced more than 20 songs, had about 50 come through their school and have three established squads. So when Television New Zealand began the hunt to find the country’s top a cappella singing group the couple decided to enter their top performance squad in the new show The Naked Choir.  The ensemble made up of Mr and Mrs Hay, Liam Dacombe, Jasmine Salam and Anneliese Veronese was one of eight voice groups to be selected to compete on the reality show hosted by singer Jeff Hunkin. Already the group has made an impact singing their own version of singer-songwriter Sia’s The Greatest, making it past the first stage of the competition on Sunday. “The first week we didn’t know anything about the groups we were competing with . . . we sort of had no idea if we were the only group doing contemporary

against maybe four different choirs,” Mrs Hay said. Expecting to be assigned a specific song for their first challenge, the groups were thrown a “curve ball” having to choose their own song and arrange it in two weeks. Mrs Hay said the first challenge was “agonising” with the group needing to choose a song that showcased their best skills and what contemporary a cappella is all about. Having first met at the

Christchurch Schools’ Music Festival when the couple was 10, Mrs Hay said the city’s music scene has been a huge part on their life. “Earthquakes aside it is very special to be representing our city. But a city that has had a lot of change and really had to pick itself up creatively,” she said. Aiming to take the title for the country’s best a cappella group is not all the Hays have on the go, with plans to take their academy into high schools later this year.

The academy will offer schools master classes and will look to perform at schools to inspire students to study music. Plans are also in the making for the academy to run a workshop conference over the summer holidays for singers and people wanting to start up their own tutor groups.  Mrs Hay said she wants the academy to contribute to the city’s music economy and help singers get paid work. “I certainly don’t think musi-

cians work any less hard than any other profession its just it is hard to get started and that is what we are passionate about,” she said. But she said the academy is also aiming to make contemporary a cappella accessible to everyone who wants to give the style a go. •The Naked Choir airs on Sunday, 8.30pm, TV One. Voices Co appear again on May 14.

Singer bares his soul in musical comedy A CITY-BASED singer, songwriter, entertainer and massage therapist will bare his soul at the upcoming Cavell Leitch International Jazz and Blues Festival. Gary Starlight, also known as Jeff Clark (right) is set to perform a three-night season of musical comedy show as part of the festival to be held at Orange Studios in Woolston. Jeff Clark is a veteran im-

proviser who performs with The Court Jesters and has been involved in The Court Theatre’s Scared Scriptless since 1996. Clark describes his alter ego Gary Starlight as a cross between John Rowles, Elvis, Michael Buble and Pepe Le Pew. As part of the show “Gary Starlight” will recount the worst year of his life and sing the songs he wrote following each event. The one-hour show will be

filled with original songs produced “out of thin air” inspired only by Clark’s interactions with the audience. The character “Gary Starlight “ first emerged as a wedding singer in The Court Jesters’ ensemble improvisation show The Early Early Late Show in 2012. Since then several shows have been created by Clark with The Gary Starlight Christmas Special at The Court Theatre in

THE latest-generation CX-5 sport utility vehicle has been launched by Mazda New Zealand. The CX-5 arrives here in three specification levels and is priced from $39,995 to $57,495. There are also three engine options including one diesel. Mazda New Zealand’s managing director David Hodge said the new CX-5 will further enhance the company’s position as market leader in the SUV segment in New Zealand. “The new CX-5 delivers on so many fronts. From its stunning looks through to ride and performance, it’s the type of vehicle that once you get behind the wheel you just want to keep on driving.” Mazda’s continual focus on enhancing Jinba Ittai – the connection between car and driver – has seen a number of enhancements that will further improve the performance and handling of the new CX-5 while at the same time delivering class-leading safety. The SkyActiv engine lineup of 2-litre and 2.5-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel all deliver responsive performance. All CX-5 models come equipped with SkyActivDrive transmission. For petrol models this means the transmission now incorporates a new shift logic that predicts the driver’s intentions based on vehicle speed, throttle position, engine speed and other factors to achieve smoother vehicle behaviour. In the diesel, the transmission includes a low rigidity lock-up damper to enhance quietness and to deliver improved fuel economy. The CX-5 features G-Vectoring Control as standard across all models. The GVC system, unique to Mazda, provides unified

control over chassis and steering systems that results in improved handling and ride quality. An indication of the commitment Mazda engineers have to delivering superior ride and handling can be seen in the company’s i-Activ AWD system that is standard on 2.5-litre and diesel models. Featuring 27 sensors, it monitors environmental and vehicle conditions at a computation rate of 200 times per second to predict traction requirements before wheel slip occurs. The suspension system on the new CX-5 has been re-tuned to improve ride comfort while the body’s torsional rigidity has increased by approximately 15.5 per cent to boost driving performance. Mr Hodge said while delivering an outstanding driving and ride experience is important, you also need

to give the driver and passengers the peace of mind that they are riding in a vehicle where their safety is paramount. “Mazda prides itself on the investment and time it makes to ensure all its vehicles feature the very latest in safety technology. The new CX-5 is a great example of this with its vast array of i-Activsense technologies and improved passive safety features,’’ Mr Hodge said. Technologies include advanced smart city brake support – forward which is standard across the range, blind spot monitoring and traffic sign recognition on GSX and Limited grades, Limited models also feature lane departure warning and driver attention alert. All models feature secondary collision reduction, which automatically applies the brakes after a primary collision thereby minimising the risk of a secondary collision. Every new CX-5 comes with mazdacare. It comprises a Mazda genuine factory warranty and Mazda on call roadside assistance for a five-year, unlimited kilometre period and genuine Mazda servicing for three years/100,000km (whichever occurs first) at no extra cost.

The biggest range of vehicles in one location

In Brief BASKETBALLERS NAMED Two Canterbury players have been named in the New Zealand under-16 basketball team to play at the Australia Junior Championships. They are Samuel Jenkins (St Andrew’s College) and Okirano Tilaia (Cashmere High School). The New Zealand team will go into a three-day camp later this month before heading to across the Tasman for the tournament which will be played from June 8-15. POWER ON: Matt Summerfield has driven his way into second in the NZRC following his win in Whangerei. PHOTO: GEOFF RIDDER ​

Summerfield set for home rally „„ By Gordon Findlater MATT Summerfield will go into next month’s Canterbury Rally in the hunt for the New Zealand Rally Championship after a spirited drive in Whangarei. Summerfield and sister Nicole (co-driver) now find themselves second in the championship after they stormed to victory in the NZRC at the International Rally of Whangarei. The result comes after he suffered gearbox failure just three kilometres into the opening stage at the opening

round of the championship in Otago last month. “I’m ecstatic. We need to build on it from here but it’s a good feeling going into Canterbury, it feels like we’re back in the fight,” said Summerfield. Saturday saw Summerfield put in a calculated drive. He finished within the top four on each stage, recording just a single stage victory on the power stage to capture an extra five championship points. The drive meant he held an overnight lead of 29.3sec over Dylan Turner in his Audi S1 AP4. Not everything went to plan

for the Summerfield team, with an exhaust manifold requiring replacement in Sunday morning’s 15min service. The job took the team 20min resulting in a 50sec penalty, which saw Turner take the l ead. However, blistering pace from Summerfield saw him win three of the day’s six stages, eventually cruising to victory 1min 6.4sec ahead of Turner. “It sucked to drop 50sec in penalties but we would have lost minutes if we didn’t do it,” said Summerfield. Summerfield is more than overdue for a positive result at

his home event on June 4. He won the Canterbury Rally in 2012 but has had no luck since, failing to finish in his last four attempts. He crashed in 2013, blew an engine in 2014, crashed in 2015 and blew another engine in 2016. “Everyone said last year that is was done because bad things come in threes. I’m well overdue,” he said. NZRC standings: Graham Featherstone 51pts, 1; Matt Summerfield 49pts, 2; Dylan Turner 47pts, 3; Rhys Gardner 46pts, 4; David Holder 41pts, 5; Andrew Hawkeswood 40pts, 6.

League boys come good in rugby „„ By Gordon Findlater A GROUP of league boys playing union are looking to prove they can be the surprise team in the UC Championship. The St Thomas of Canterbury College first XV started the Crusaders region secondary school competition with an emphatic 64-5 win over Burnside High School. The interesting thing about the team is if you asked a large chunk of them which sport they play the answer would be ‘rugby league’. Zinzan Martin and Patrick Elia both scored hat-tricks for St Thomas’ on Saturday. The previous weekend both attended a South Island rugby league camp. More than a half a dozen of the St Thomas’ team have played representative rugby league for Canterbury or the South Island. St Thomas’ have also followed the trend of bringing in a recognised name in the coaching department, former Canterbury and Crusaders flanker Johnny Leo’o. On Saturday, they take on last year’s round-robin winners Christ’s College. The match will

TALENTED: Hornby Panthers junior Zinzan Martin scored a hat-trick for St Thomas’ on Saturday. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

act as a great gauge for what the team is capable of. “I don’t think we’d call it an upset if we get the win. It’s not daunting for us going to Christ’s, we’ve got a lot of talent,’’ defence coach Hamish Barclay said. The league connection at St Thomas’ isn’t just restricted to its players. Canterbury Bulls and Linwood Keas coach Andrew Auimatagi is a teacher at the school. “We want your league boys to have the best opportunity they can and playing first XV rugby

seems to be the pinnacle in Canterbury,” said Auimatagi. The school may also have of the most exciting players in the competition in the form of 17-year-old centre Jordan Riki. The former Christchurch Boys’ High School student was named the under-16 player of the year at the New Zealand Rugby League awards in January and is part of the Brisbane Broncos youth system. St Thomas’ may have been easy beats in the past, but if their core group of talented league

players can adapt their games to the different code expect more than a few upsets this season. Saturday Fixtures (home team first) – Shirley BHS v Timaru BHS, Burnside HS v Christchurch BHS, Lincoln Combined v Nelson College, Roncalli College v St Andrew’s College, St Bede’s College v Marlborough BC, Christ’s College v St Thomas, Rangiora HS v Waimea Combined.

LEADERS TO CLASH Coastal Spirit and Ferrymead Bays will meet in a top-of-thetable clash in the Mainland Premier League at Cuthberts Green on Saturday. Bays lead the competition after eight rounds and are on 21 points, three ahead of Cashmere Technical and four ahead of Coastal. The two teams previously met on March 25, with Bays defeating Coastal 1-0 at Ferrymead Park. TIGERS PLAYERS FOR TEST Papanui Tigers duo Bunty Kuruwaka-Crowe and Corrina Whiley will make their Kiwi Ferns debuts in tomorrow’s Anzac test against Australia in Canberra. Canterbury women’s team coach Michael Linton will also be involved as the assistant coach of the Kiwi Ferns. Kuruwaka-Crowe and Whiley are believed to be the first Canterbury-based Kiwi Ferns reps since another Papanui product, Alisha Moses, who earned her first call-up as a teenager for the 2008 World Cup. DEFENDER HOPEFUL Coastal Spirit defender Shaun Liddicoat is the only Christchurch-based player named in the 30-man New Zealand squad ahead of the Under-20 Football World Cup in Korea later this month. The University of Canterbury engineering student is currently in camp with the team in Auckland with the hope of making the final 21-man squad for the tournament, which is named on Monday. New Zealand will play Vietnam, Honduras and France in their pool. KART OPPORTUNITY Eleven-year-old Jacob Douglas will head to Italy in October to take on the world’s best young kart drivers, representing New Zealand at the International ROK Cup Finals. The Medbury School student booked his spot after winning the Vortex Mini ROK title at the KartSport New Zealand National Sprint Championships in Invercargill last month. In Italy he will drive for the OTK kart group whose previous drivers include seven-time formula one world champion Michael Schumacher.

Mauger vying for top job at Highlanders „„ By Steve Hepburn NEW HIGHLANDERS assistant coach and former Crusader Aaron Mauger will be one of a cast of three all vying for the top job. Mauger, 36, was announced on Monday as the new assistant coach for the Highlanders for the 2018 and 2019 seasons. The 45-test All Black will be the attack coach for the side, re-

placing head coach Tony Brown, who is shifting to Japan to help coach the national team after this season. Mauger has just finished a spell coaching the Leicester Tigers in England and was actively pursued by the Highlanders. Mauger coached the Crusaders under Todd Blackadder for three seasons before heading to the Leicester Tigers where he was

With the appointment of Mauger it means none of the coaching team will have played for Otago. Highlanders chief executive Roger Clark said that never came into the appointment of Mauger as the franchise was simply looking for the best candidate. “They are not many Otago people out there coaching. When we got Jamie Joseph and

However, he was moved into the top job in January when Cockerill left but was then surprisingly sacked in March just after winning some silverware for the club. With Brown leaving, a new head coach is needed but Clark said the franchise would not rush that decision.

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. © 2012 KenKen Puzzle LLC. All rights reserved

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the market, then ask to see listings for properties similar to yours that have sold in the past six months.

PROPOSED WAINONI PARK STORMWATER BASIN EASEMENT ON RESERVE The Aranui catchment is at greater flood risk since the earthquakes due to land damage. To reduce the increased flood risk in the catchment the north east corner of Wainoni Park has been selected as a site for a new flood storage basin. The basin will store flood water in heavy rainfall events and release it back to the stormwater network as soon as there is capacity in the stormwater network, reducing the flood risk to properties in the adjacent areas. This is public notice in accordance with the requirements of Section 48 (2) of the Reserves Act 1977 (Act) that the Council is to be requested to resolve to grant, subject to the consent of the Minister of Conservation, easements in gross for the right to drain water over the land described in Schedule A below. Schedule A Approximately 7,100 square metres of Part Reserve 5208, Section 3 SO 359536 and Lot 2 DP 45894, a recreation reserve of some 57,600 square metres, the control of which is vested in the Christchurch City Council pursuant to the Reserves Act 1977. Wainoni Park is situated at 31 Hampshire Street. To provide the required stormwater storage the north-east section of the park will be dug out by approximately one to one and a half metres. The resulting flood storage basin will then be extensively landscaped to enhance the surrounding park environment. The space will remain fully accessible to the public for recreation purposes at all times other than when temporary ponding occurs during extreme rainfall events or during occasional maintenance periods. To obtain a plan and further details on the proposed easements please contact: Barry Woodland Property Consultant Corporate Services Group Christchurch City Council PO Box 73015 Christchurch 8154 Telephone: DD 941 5952 Email: barry.woodland@ccc.govt.nz Any person or organisation wishing to either make a submission or object to the proposed easements over part of the reserve described in this notice, may do so in writing no later than 5pm on Wednesday, 7 June 2017 to the person whose contact details appear above. Submitters should indicate in their submission if they wish to appear before a Hearings Panel to be heard in support of their submission or objection. Jo Daly COUNCIL SECRETARY www.ccc.govt.nz
