CONCERNS: Elizabeth Fry met with David Cartwright, Jamie Gough and Gerry Brownlee to discuss the proposed removal of car parking at the shops on the corner of Holmwood Rd and Rossall St. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

Anger over parking proposal Meeting draws support from politicians „„ By Julia Evans BUSINESSES IN Fendalton fear for their future after being presented with a city council plan that would reduce parking outside their shops. Elizabeth Fry, owner of The

Cook Shop, organised a petition of 336 signatures, which prompted an on-site meeting between Ilam MP Gerry Brownlee, city councillor Jamie Gough and Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board chairman David Cartwright. The concern for Mrs Fry and the other shops on the corner of Holmwood Rd and Rossall St, including Le Panier, Holmwood Dairy, Flowers on Holmwood and The Preservatory Café and

Delicatessen, is that they would lose their walk-in customer base. “It’ll kill us . . . the reality is it’s putting all these businesses in real danger of having to close their doors,” Mrs Fry said. She said she regularly hears from customers that the only reason they stopped was because there was a park free. Gilles Thébault, owner of the adjacent shop Le Panier, said he would have to shut up because it would create another “dead

corner” in the city. The proposal includes a pedestrian island and curb expansion on Rossall St and no stopping restrictions around the corner on to Holmwood Rd. The purpose is to address speeding drivers and pedestrian safety. Mr Brownlee said he, Cr Gough and Mr Cartwright were “all on the same page.” After the meeting, Cr Gough said he was confident that “common sense” would prevail.

Mr Cartwright said it was good to get on the ground and see for themselves how it would affect the shops and help come up with a remedy. But he said they needed to be sensible and realistic. “It’s a busy corner, but it’s not broken so we don’t need to fix it. There are examples in the city that are much worse,” he said. Mr Cartwright and Cr Gough will take the businesses concerns back to the community board.

THERE’S AN amazing sports story on page 20 today. Cotswold Primary School pupil Matthew Growcott has become the top squash player for his age group in Oceania. Seeded fifth, he beat the more fancied contenders including the top seed 3-0 at the championships in Auckland and if he continues to progress he’ll be one of our top squash players of the future. You have to sympathise with business owners when Big Brother decides to cut car parking outside their premises. That’s the situation currently facing business on the corner of Holmwood Rd and Rossall St, Fendalton (see page 1). The businesses have got a 336-signature petition and brought in heavyweights Gerry Brownlee and senior city councillor Jamie Gough to try and stop the plan to restrict off-street car parking. – Barry Clarke

Bid to trespass lake vandals „„ By Julia Evans THE CITY council is looking into ways of preventing vandalism at a Harewood reserve. City council staff and the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board want to trespass the vandals, who have been using angle grinders, winches and bolt cutters to gain entry to the area around Lake Roto Kohatu. David After costing Cartwright ratepayers more than $15,000 over three months, the community board does not want to spend more money cleaning up around the lake. Chairman David Cartwright said after receiving a memo from city council staff, the community board is now working on preventative measures, considering the serious nature and cost of the vandalism. “Are park rangers trained or skilled enough to deal with this? And if not, there must be a skill

set or training programme they can use,” he said. City council operations manager regional parks Kay Holder said city council staff will be working with the board on improving security at the access ways. She said that if it were appropriate, park rangers could trespass vandals from the reserve. Mr Cartwright said that the park rangers and members

of the public know who the offending vandals were so they should be trespassed at least. “If these people are vandalising, we need to trespass (them) and . . . we do know who they are,” he said. Ms Holder confirmed that at least $15,000 had been spent in the summer season. She said that included the repair and replacement of damaged facilities as a result of people driving vehicles on

In Brief BOOKARAMA SUCCESS Sales from the Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside’s Bookarama made 16 per cent more than the previous year, but the club would not disclose the exact figure, member Lindsay Crossen said. He said the event’s success was a result of donations of good quality books from people in the north-west. Over the next 12 months, the money will be used to support the community. NEW YOUTH MANAGER A new manager has been appointed to 24-7 YouthWork, based at Burnside High School. The organisation aims to connect young people with mentors and role models. Josh Olds has taken over from previous manager Paul Holmes. A luncheon was held recently to farewell Mr Holmes. GREEN OPEN HOMES Homes at 94 Hills Rd, St Albans, and 28a Holmwood Rd, Merivale, will be open to the public from 11am-4pm every weekend in May. These two homes are part of a project aimed at giving people an idea of what it would be like to live in one of the city’s greenest houses.

Veterinary practice

OUR VISIT TO UC DAVIS, CALIFORNIA Steve, Isaac and myself recently spent time at UC Davis, the #1 Veterinary school in the world. For 2 years running it has received this huge accolade and when you are there you can see why. It operates and is the size of a mini CHCH Public hospital. They are a teaching hospital as well as seeing referral patients and first opinion clients. Their specialities include 24/7 emergency and critical care, cardiology, neurology, ophthalmology, oncology and surgery. They were originally set up to see 5500 patients per year, last year they saw 50,000 patients. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and enthusiastic about being part of this college. It had a wonderful vibe... Isaac was hooked. Approximately 140 students get accepted yearly in to Davis, with around 10% being male. It cost about US$45,000 for tuition( $64000 NZL) and then there is living costs on top of that. Vet students on average come out owing US $135,000. These students have spent the previous 4 years obtaining an excellent undergraduate degree just to get accepted, majoring in science and maths. There are 30 colleges of Veterinary Medicine in the US and each year about 3000 students get accepted. About 40% of students who apply get accepted somewhere. In your 3rd year you start to branch off in your area of interest – either companion animal, equine, mixed practice or production animals. After their 4 year degree at Davis, most will apply for 1-2 year internship at another Veterinary College to further their skills in an area they are interested in. Davis don’t offer internships. Our freshman (first year) guide loves dentistry so her plans are to become a specialist in this field. After her internship, she then needs to apply for a residency at one of the 30 colleges, which could be anything from 3-5 years more study!! These are hard to come by, and you have to be the best of the bunch, although a Vet degree from UC Davis stands you in good steed. So to be a specialist in your field in the US takes between 13-15 years, and the debt these students accrue is massive, a few get scholarships, but most have to pay. I met a vet in her 40’s who still has a student loan. Steve spent 2 days tagging along with ophthalmology specialists, residents and students on rotation. First and second year students get at least 2 weeks of ophthalmology per year ( 27 years ago when I studied at Massey, 1 day was dedicated to “eyes”). He really enjoyed the collegial discussions on cases, sussing out all the latest equipment, chatting to the students and doing rounds with them. Steve came away pleased with his skills

RECORD HOLDERS: Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village residents Jenny Duncan, Alice Mueller and Val Muirhead at the record exercise class with leader Nicki Brown. ​

Ngaio Marsh village retirees part of record fitness attempt and expertise in ophthalmology, although a few pieces of equipment caught his eye. Isaac and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hour tour of the entire faculty. Isaac loved the exotics hospital where they house and treat the reptiles, birds, rabbits, turtles etc. We also visited their raptor centre, home to rescued birds of prey that can no longer see or fly. He also enjoyed watching elbow arthroscopy on a Golden Retriever from a viewing room. He could see them cutting and sucking out torn cartilage from the video screen. What amazed me was the amount of people in theatre – 9 in all, including the chief surgeon, 2 residents, 3 anesthetists and 4th year students. There were so many people milling around keenly observing. They do MRI and CT here and even have a massive MRI machine that can fit a horse into. The most expensive patient to date was a spoodle who underwent dialysis for 18 months, visiting the hospital twice weekly to have all the toxins removed from her blood. Her final account was US$140,000! The most expensive piece of equipment is a linear accelerator used for radiation treatment for cancer patients costing a little over 1 million. Apparently one of the only surgical procedures NOT performed here at Davis is renal transplants as when attempted on cats over 10 years ago, the survival rate was poor. A handful of colleges perform renal transplants in cats including the Pennsylvania and Georgia College of Vet medicine. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at Davis and I thought how amazing, fun and expensive it would be to be a student now studying vet medicine at UC Davis. The students we met were just so absorbed, very happy and grateful to be at this world class faculty. I came out thinking I am so in the right profession. -Dr Michele McMaster

AN AUSTRALASIAN record has been set by more than 3000 retirees who took part in a synchronised fitness class hosted by a retirement village in Papanui. Across Australia and New Zealand, 31 Ryman Healthcare retirement villages were linked via YouTube to set a record for Australasia’s biggest synchronised fitness class involving elderly people. Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village hosted the record attempt, with fitness guru Nicki Brown leading the session. Black Fern Kendra Cocksedge and Ry-

man managing director Simon Challies were at the Papanui event. Mr Challies said the aim was to preserve residents’ independence, reduce the risks of falls and get them to try new things. However, he had no idea the classes would be so popular. “It was a bit off the wall, introducing circuit classes with swiss balls, weights and bands, to a group of people it was a bit foreign to. It was like Les Mills meets Ryman,” he said

View from above the traffic A SERIES of photos show views of the Russley Rd and Memorial Ave intersection. The New Zealand Transport Agency took the photos from the top of a 27m gateway arch on State Highway 1. The structure will be made up of 30 different sections and weigh 400 tonne. The arches are set to be completed halfway through this year as part of the $112 million SH1 upgrade project. The arches will cost about $4

million. They have attracted criticism due to the cost, which is being funded through the National Land Transport Fund. The money comes from petrol tax, road-user charges and vehicle registration fees. The arches, designed by Warren and Mahoney, are said to symbolise the crossing of paths, namely the Southern Alps and the braided rivers of the Canterbury Plains, and the excitement of travel.

Dealing with loss and grief Canterbury University student Heather McMillan talks about her experiences dealing with grief at a young age When I was 16 my Mum passed away from cancer – this is a sentence that I still get anxious saying or typing even four years later. It’s the point in a conversation that will cut all upbeat to the ground. I generally just tell people and then reassure them that not knowing what to say is normal. From the age of 16 I’ve had to teach myself how to cope with

dealing with grief. With the sadness of it, the spontaneity of it and the knowing it’s something I have to face every day. Dealing with grief at any age is horrible, but as a teenager and young person it has been especially hard. Thankfully, though, along the way I’ve gained the help from CanTeen through their offspring group and youth workers.

MEMORY LANE: Heather McMillan is raising money for CanTeen after losing her mother to cancer. She is pictured here as a child with her mother.

  FLAME FILES

Keep cooking under control in the kitchen

I have been given so many opportunities to meet other youth who are affected by cancer. To most people CanTeen is seen as a resource to patients but it is so much more then that and I am so lucky to have them. They have been the introducer of so many other young people who are going through the same or similar situations with cancer. Having the release of having people who can relate to what you are going through as a young person is more then incredible. It can make the most overwhelming of days feel better by having people who actually understand what you are going through. CanTeen has become such a big part of my life that I am shaving my head to raise funds and give back to the Canterbury branch. My main purpose for this head shave is to raise awareness about what CanTeen do and to be able to open up about my own experiences dealing with grief.

„„ Mark Thomas, fire risk management officer I KNOW I’ve repeated the advice about looking when cooking dozens of times over the years and it looks very much like it’s never going to cease completely. But every now and then I despair a bit.  Like on Wednesday when within three-and-a-half-hours fire trucks responded to three different cooking incidents.  A house completely filled with smoke from a forgotten pie in the microwave in Sockburn was followed by a pot on the stove, again filling the house in Kotare St and a further incident in Bryndwr where smoke inhalation was the result for the elderly occupants.  Any of these could have been much worse.  A life or a house gone.  But all of them were preventable.  Stay in the kitchen. The smell of burning in your home can be frightening for anyone.  More so if you’re blind.

MATT DOOCEY

Proudly NZ owned and operated by cost caring women

The occupant of a house in Addington thankfully did the exact right thing, again on Wednesday, by phoning 111 and having the local crew there within minutes. Turned out to be a tea towel smouldering on an element.  The potential here was a bit frightening. I’ve not mentioned arson here for a long time.  It’s still occurring but the removal of most of the empty houses in the red zone has made it less visible or newsworthy.  A drum of diesel spread along the road in the early hours last Sunday in Wigram was lit and left by whatever morons thought it was clever.  They’re still out there. As stupid and dangerous as ever.

WE SERVICE WHAT WE SELL

MP FOR WAIMAKARIRI CHAT WITH MATT This Thursday, 18 May, I hope to meet you at my Keeping Connected Evening Meeting at the Belfast Rugby Club from 7.30pm to 8.30pm. I am holding these meetings all over the electorate to be accessible outside business hours. Nothing beats connecting face to face and I’m enjoying these lively discussions. Papanui High School students impressed me with their innovative product ideas during their school’s recent BP Business Challenge. I enjoyed being part of the judging panel. Students are mentored by business leaders and then present their ideas. Well done to Papanui High for fostering our young business leaders of the future.

A $2 billion package to deliver pay increases to those working in aged and disability residential care, and home and community support services is good news for local families. I visit all our rest homes around the electorate and I know the value of what these workers do in helping the most vulnerable in our communities. Increased investment in policing will deliver 70 more police staff for Canterbury. We’ve seen our regional population grow and can expect further growth. I meet regularly with our local hardworking police men and women and this investment will also equip them with new resources and tools.

Triathlete in NZ squad

NOR’WEST NEWS

SPORTS

„„ By Gordon Findlater FORMER ST Andrew’s College triathlete Ari Graham will test herself against the world’s best after being named in the New Zealand team to compete at the ITU world championships in the Netherlands. Graham, 18, is the only Canterbury athlete in the team of six juniors (under-19) who will compete in September. The Southshore resident will be joined by Hannah Knighton, Waikato/Tauranga, Ainsley Thorpe, Trent Dodds, Dan Hoy, Auckland, and Janus Staufenberg, Wanaka. Mark Elliott, Triathlon New Zealand’s high performance director, is excited by the talent being demonstrated in this team. “The selected athletes span across the country from the top of Auckland to the deep south in Wanaka,” said Elliott. “It’s exciting to see the depth of the athletes coming from different parts of the country, as well as the coaches who are guiding our current and future champions.” Over the summer, Graham competed in the national junior series, which is contested between the top under-19-year-olds in the country over five events. Graham not only won the series, she took out all five events. She is also a former age group middle distance and cross country champion. After competing in a couple of school triathlons, she made the decision late last year to dedicate her time to triathlon. She is currently training fulltime after finishing school.

UNBEATEN: CBHS halfback Louie Chapman surveys his options during Saturday’s 46-8 win over Burnside.

CBHS at top of table

SQUAD: Ari Graham (middle) will be joined by Ainsley Thorpe and Hannah Knighton in the New Zealand junior triathlon team. ​

The junior squad is the first of three New Zealand teams to be announced with the under-23s and elite squad selections to be

made in early August. The world championships will take place in Rotterdam from September 14-17.

„„ By Gordon Findlater DEFENDING champions Christchurch Boys’ High School have gone to the top of the UC Championship following their 44-8 bonus point win over Burnside High School. After two rounds of competition, CBHS is one of only three teams with two wins since Timaru Boys’ High School and Nelson College also recorded victories. CBHS and Timaru will meet next Tuesday in what could give an early gauge of who the competition favourites will be. “They had a good young side last year and they’ve had a great start to this season, so I think it’s going to be a really competitive match,” said CBHS assistant coach Rob Smith. Meanwhile, St Bede’s College bounced back after their opening round shock loss to Lincoln Combined, accounting for Marl-

borough Boys’ College 38-14. After an opening round bye, St Andrew’s College got their campaign off to the perfect start with a 52-19 bonus point win over Roncalli Combined. St Andrew’s face a tough task next weekend when they make the journey north to take on Marlborough BC. “Especially at home they’re always going to be tough. They have it tough most weeks having to travel south,” said St Andrew’s assistant coach Mike Johnston. UC Championship round two results Christ’s College 26 - 18 St Thomas; Timaru BHS 43 - 17 Shirley BHS; Nelson College 50 - 6 Lincoln Combined; St Bede’s College 38 - 14 Marlborough BC; St Andrew’s College 52 - 19 Roncalli Combined; CBHS 46 - 8 Burnside HS; Rangiora HS 27 - 17 Waimea Combined.

„„ By Gordon Findlater MEDBURY School pupil Jacob Douglas will take on the world’s best in October when he takes the next step towards his dream of driving in formula one. Jacob, 11, started racing three years ago and has now secured his spot at the International Rok Cup finals in Italy by dominating at the KartSport NZ national sprint championships in Invercargill. He won the vortex mini rok class, taking out his heat races before going on to win the final by more than four seconds. “The competition was pretty stiff down there with a lot of good drivers,” said Jacob. He previously raced motorbikes but after spending a day at the track with his father in 2014, decided it was time to sell the bike after finding his passion for driving on four wheels. Trained by Matthew Hamilton of WKS Kartstore and Tiffany Chittenden, Jacob is a boy who wants to go places. He lives and breathes motor racing and is passionate about making his mark on the world stage.

WORLD STAGE: Jacob Douglas has raced his way to Italy after claiming a national title last month. PHOTO: RICHARD DIMMOCK ​

Jacob trains at the KartSport Canterbury track on the corner of Carrs and Wigram Rds up to four times a week. His dedication to chasing the formula one dream even involves occasionally taking time out of school. “I don’t think they particularly like that, but

they’re quite supportive of my racing,” said Jacob. In Italy, he will drive for the OTK Kart Group. The group’s former drivers include seven-time formula one world champion Michael Schumacher. The International Rok Cup finals take place from October 11-14.

Cotswold’s squash sensation COTSWOLD PRIMARY School pupil Matthew Growcott has continued his winning ways, taking gold in the under-11 section of the Oceania Squash Championships recently. The tournament was held at the Henderson Squash Club, Auckland, and attracted more than 200 entries across the age groups, with players from Australia, China, French Polynesia, Hong Kong, New Caledonia and Singapore making it a truly international event. Matthew, who was seeded fifth in the tournament, had to play his first match in the main draw against top seed, Oliver Dunbar, of Wellington, who he beat 3-0. His next match was against fourth seed Australian, Aryan Madan, where his fitness showed over the Australian, winning 3-1. In the final, he played sixth seed Reece Holmes, of Hawera, where he was more focused and consistent than his opponent, winning the title 3-0. An exciting prospect for the young Cantabrian is that he is still eligible for next year’s under-11 Oceania Squash Championships in Australia. It is the second squash tournament he has won this year, after winning the Squashways junior grade in March. He is coached by John Brown weekly on a one-on-one basis and is also part of Brown’s high-

New and quality used tyres for most makes & models If you need new tyres for your vehicle, JCM Direct is the place to go.

This family-run, independent tyre business in Birmingham Drive specialises in new and quality second-hand tyres. The business is owned by husband and wife Athol and Julie Hurst, with Julie being the one who runs the day-to-day operation and fits the tyres for customers, which is unusual in the male-dominated industry, she says. They stock a large selection of new tyres from a wide range of suppliers to suit your wheelbarrow, car, van, 4wd or trailer. “There are very few brands we can’t do,” Julie says. “We also have an excellent selection of quality second-hand 4WD tyres. Other services JCM Direct offers include puncture repairs, supply and fitting of new and second-hand alloy wheels, wheel alignments, replacement factory steel rims, rim repairs and lights. “We also specialise in old rims, from the 1930s to the 1970s, which people purchase for caravans and old trailers. The modern rims won’t fit those,” Julie says. “JCM Direct also do a lot of matching rims and tyres, so customers don’t have to buy a complete new set if only one needs

Three great danceworks. One great show.

Episode 31 • Tuplet • Cacti Isaac Theatre Royal 9 – 10 June CHOREOGRAPHY BY ALEXANDER EKMAN

BOOK NOW rnzb.org.nz


Prepare yourself for an electrifying night out as the RNZB presents not one, but three razor-sharp works by Alexander Ekman, performed together for the first time. A highlight of the RNZB’s 2016 Speed of Light programme; don’t miss this opportunity to experience Ekman’s exuberant, complex rhythms and witty, stylish staging.

Tuplet Tuplet, for just six dancers, is the most intimate of the three works, riffing off the split-second precision of contemporary ballet dancers at the top of their game. Created for Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, it premiered in New York in 2012. Video and set design / Alexander Ekman Costume design / Nancy Haeyung Bae Lighting design / Amith Chandrashaker Music / Mikael Karlsson, Victor Feldman, Bart Howard Image: Tuplet, photograph by Rhys Cozens, courtesy of National Dance Company Wales

Episode 31 Episode 31 is larger in scale, a torrent of youthful vigour harnessing the energy of New York City. Made for the Senior Graduation Class at The Juilliard School, it premiered in New York in 2011. Video and set design / Alexander Ekman Costume design / Luke Simcock Lighting design / Nicole Pearce Music / Mikael Karlsson, Erik Satie, Ane Brun Image: Episode 31, photograph by Cheryl Mann, dancers Derrick Agnoletti and Aaron Rogers, courtesy of The Joffrey Ballet

“From the very first moment I started learning the Ekman repertoire, I fell in love with it! It’s like nothing I’ve ever danced before in my 15 year career. What I love most about the Ekman style is the rhythms we get to make, with both our bodies and our voices. All three works are to such ‘feel good’ music and have a quirky sense of humour, so you can’t help but enjoy yourself while you’re dancing. Performing in my hometown always brings a bag of mixed emotions. On the one hand I get extremely excited to be performing in the stunningly beautiful Isaac Theatre Royal, which feels so normal, so right, and is almost comforting to me. But on the other hand I know the majority of the dance world in Christchurch, which makes me nervous, because I want to perform perfectly for them and make them proud. When you know that certain people are in the audience, it brings a nervous tension to your dancing – which can often make for a better show! I can’t wait to be back in Christchurch with the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s Three By Ekman. Make sure you book your tickets for a night of fist pumping, high energy fun!”

Cacti (2010) brings it all together, combining hilarious insights into the dancers’ innermost thoughts with a mesmerising musicality. Once again, the RNZB will be joined by the New Zealand String Quartet onstage for all performances.

Prepare yourself for an electrifying night out as the RNZB presents not one, but three razor-sharp works by Alexander Ekman, performed together for the first time. A highlight of the RNZB’s 2016 Speed of Light programme; don’t miss this opportunity to experience Ekman’s exuberant, complex rhythms and witty, stylish staging.

Tuplet Tuplet, for just six dancers, is the most intimate of the three works, riffing off the split-second precision of contemporary ballet dancers at the top of their game. Created for Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, it premiered in New York in 2012.

“From the very first moment I started learning the Ekman repertoire, I fell in love with it! It’s like nothing I’ve ever danced before in my 15 year career. What I love most about the Ekman style is the rhythms we get to make, with both our bodies and our voices. All three works are to such ‘feel good’ music and have a quirky sense of humour, so you can’t help but enjoy yourself while you’re dancing. Performing in my hometown always brings a bag of mixed emotions. On the one hand I get extremely excited to be performing in the stunningly beautiful Isaac Theatre Royal, which feels so normal, so right, and is almost comforting to me. But on the other hand I know the majority of the dance world in Christchurch, which makes me nervous, because I want to perform perfectly for them and make them proud. When you know that certain people are in the audience, it brings a nervous tension to your dancing – which can often make for a better show! I can’t wait to be back in Christchurch with the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s Three By Ekman. Make sure you book your tickets for a night of fist pumping, high energy fun!”
