Schools told of child sex offender „„ By Andrew King SCHOOLS IN south Christchurch have been told a convicted child sex offender will soon be living near them. They were notified on Tuesday by the Department of Corrections which assured them that there will be 24/7 monitoring, exclusion zones to prevent contact with children, and the offender will be housed more than 500m from schools. Letters were sent to schools,

including Somerfield School, St Peter’s School and Cashmere High School. ABC Somerfield Childcare was also told. Corrections staff were also going door-to-door in Somerfield yesterday letting the community know. Detective Sergeant Brad Grainger of the police child protection team said they were working closely with Corrections. He would not reveal the offender’s identity or past crimes, and referred The

Star to Corrections for further comment. Corrections said they were not able to respond to The Star late yesterday. Somerfield principal Denise Torrey said while they are not thrilled they will have a sex offender living amongst them, it was about reinforcing good safety policies. “There are multiple schools in this area so they are always going to be close. But we have to just make sure we are pushing those

safety messages to keep our children safe,” she said. St Peter’s principal Pamela Arthurs said it is out of their control and she has full faith in Corrections to keep the person monitored and children safe. “We accept people need to be reintegrated and have a chance to make it right,” she said. Both principals said they had notified parents about the sex offender’s arrival. Ms Torrey said there had been a little bit of negative feedback.

“I have been asked for a name and address, which I don’t have and couldn’t give out even if I did,” Ms Torrey said. ABC Somerfield’s manager said she could not comment. Somerfield Residents Association chairwoman Julie Tobbell said it was better to be warned than be in the dark about the situation. “It is a concern as a parent, but it allows us to prepare our kids for these situations by explaining stranger danger,” she said.

Baxter returns home after 14 months „„ By Gabrielle Stuart WHERE BAXTER has been for more than a year is a mystery – and the things the little dog may have seen he will never be able to tell. The 10-year-old bichon frise has been compared to Wilson the Lotto Dog – finding his way home after a long adventure. He was found wandering in Hornby on Sunday about 6km away from the Avonhead home where he went missing 14 months ago. •Turn to page 5

Thursday June 1 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

A NICE warm fuzzy canine story on the front page today – a 14-month reunion between owner and dog. Baxter the bichon frise is back with his owner after disappearing in early March last year. Clearly, somebody has had Baxter. He’s microchipped and has a collar and he has been fairly well looked after. So it doesn’t take much detective work to work out that whoever was caring for Baxter didn’t alert the city council, which would then have been able to track down owner Mackenzie Kane and send him home. Baxter must have done a runner in recent days, which as it turns out was a good thing. Someone else found him, did the right thing and Baxter was reunited with Mackenzie. A lovely story and what a cracker pic from photographer Martin Hunter. On another note, probably worrying times for parents in south Christchurch.

At a Glance THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST This week in history saw the first trotting meeting held at Lancaster Park on May 29, 1886. On the same day in 1926 a broadcast from a rugby match at Lancaster Park was New Zealand’s first. Commentator Allan Allardyce was soon to pioneer broadcasts of racing, cricket and hockey for station 3YA. He also gave live coverage of Kingsford-Smith’s landing at Wigram in 1928. In 1967 the new Bank of New Zealand building in Cathedral Square was opened. On June 1, 1862, Christchurch Hospital was opened on site in Hagley Park. But only after the first vigorous Hands off Hagley protests by irate citizens. On June 1, 1961, television transmission began on CHTV 3. On June 2, 1874, The Press started publishing an evening paper, The Globe, to compete with The Star. It became The Telegraph, then The Truth then Evening News. Publication ceased in May 1917. On June 4, 1864, a fire in Colombo St destroyed buildings between Hereford and Cashel Sts.

WANTED MAN’S PHOTO COPS EARFUL A man wanted for arrest in Canterbury has become an online hit. Police have issued a warrant to arrest 29-year-old Lucas William Vincent. But a Facebook post, which includes a mug shot of him, on the Canterbury Police page has been inundated with people commenting on Vincent’s left ear, which appears to have been damaged somehow. “He’s going to get an earful when his mother finds out about this,” one man said. “I’ll let you know if I ear anything.” “Noted for having a fight with Mike Tyson once,” another offered.

More problems for Maddie Teenager determined to beat illness „„ By Gabrielle Stuart MADDIE COLLINS has spent most of her life battling kidney failure – now the 13-year-old has been dealt another lifethreatening blow. She was told last week while at Starship Hospital for kidney treatment that her heart is also failing. If Maddie had a successful kidney transplant, her heart could recover, but without one, she would be at risk of a heart attack, her mother Sarah Manson Collins said. The news had hit Maddie and the whole family hard, she said. “She was in the room when they told us and she said, ‘okay, how many months have I got to live?’ We said, ‘no, it’s not like that, you’re going to be okay,’” she said. Kidney problems can force the heart to pump harder, putting a lot of strain on it. An American study has found children on dialysis for kidney problems were 1000 times more likely to have a fatal heart attack. The family has been fundraising to take Maddie to The John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, United States, next month where more advanced treatment may make it easier to match a donated kidney. In 2012, her father, Adam Collins, donated one of his kidneys to Maddie, but her body rejected it. “We know we’re fighting uphill to find a match for Maddie, but you’ve got to believe in miracles,” Mrs Manson Collins said. The treatment offered in the

United States would make it less likely Maddie’s body would reject a donated kidney. However, it comes at a price – the full treatment is expected to cost about $350,000. Givealittle pages have already raised more than $80,000 for Maddie, and people in the community had also been incredibly generous, Mrs Manson Collins said. Many people, from family members to total strangers, had also volunteered to be tested to see if their kidneys might be a match for Maddie. She had no idea how many, as the family were not allowed to know unless a match was found. But even though none so far had matched Maddie, Mrs Man-

son Collins said every person willing to donate an organ had helped someone. “It’s not just about Maddie. We don’t have enough organ donors and that’s what this is about, so if I can make more people talk about organ donations I’ll have succeeded,” she said. She said Maddie had been finding things tough, as her treatment meant she missed a lot at her school, St Margaret’s College, and couldn’t do many things with her friends. “People say she looks so well, she looks so healthy, but you don’t see kidney failure until you lift up her shirt and see all those lines in her body,” she said.

But she said Maddie’s love for animals, the people around her and her passion for life kept her strong. “Maddie is incredible. When she gets on her pony everything is right for her, even though I know how much energy it takes her to ride. Her inner strength puts some of us to shame sometimes,” she said. •Regular updates on Maddie’s condition will be posted on her Facebook page – www.facebook. com/groups/maddiecollins •Maddie’s givealittle page is www. givealittle.co.nz/cause/ givethegiftoflifetomaddie •More information about becoming an organ donor or being tested to see if you would be a match can be found at www. cdhb.health.nz/HospitalsServices/Specialist-Care/ Nephrology/kidneydonation

In Brief CRASH VICTIM NAMED The man who died when the car he was a passenger in crashed into a Mairehau house last week has been named. He was 26-yearold Bjorn Jabez James Mokoraka Waiti. The crash happened on Friday just after 10pm. The driver was taken to hospital with serious injuries. The investigation into the crash is ongoing. Meanwhile, a 24-year-old killed when his vehicle crashed into a tree on Easterbrook Rd, Fernside, on Tuesday morning has been named as Ethan Crone. RISK OF MYRTLE RUST Myrtle rust disease which can kill native trees could reach Christchurch. City council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said the disease, recently discovered in New Zealand, was likely to reach Christchurch “at some point”. Myrtle rust is an invasive fungus that attacks members of the myrtle family of plants, such as manuka, rata, kanuka and pohutukawa, feijoa and eucalyptus. SHOPLIFTER DETAINED Customers held onto a shoplifter who tried to steal tobacco at a Riccarton dairy until police arrived on Tuesday night. A 23-year-old woman allegedly grabbed a packet of tobacco and attempted to run from the Naresh Foodstore on Riccarton Rd at about 7.45pm. Police said the offender had been charged with assault and will appear in the district court tomorrow. RYMAN RESIDENT STUDY Residents and staff at Ryman Healthcare’s retirement villages have raised $330,000 to fund a heart research project. The money will fund the Heart Foundation Clinical Fellowship, a three-year study into cardiovascular disease, run by the Christchurch Heart Institute. The study will begin in Christchurch this year and look into cardiovascular disease in residents of Ryman Healthcare facilities.

Gang member jailed for $1m drug bust „„ By Sam Hurley GANG INVOLVEMENT in the methamphetamine supply into Christchurch has been played out at the High Court at Auckland. Rebels Outlaw motor-cycle gang member Daryn Bruce Catley, 31, has been jailed this week for nine years for his role in smuggling more than $1 million of the highly addictive drug. Catley, 31, was arrested in September 2015 as part of Operation Tea, an investigation in to large amounts of methamphetamine that were being sourced in Auckland by organised criminal groups and transported to Christchurch by air and vehicles. In Auckland, late on September 13, 2015, Catley gave his co-offender, Stephen Hames Harland, a black Nike bag full of meth and instructed him to drive a rental car to Christchurch, court documents show. Catley was to travel to Christchurch separately and meet Harland to secure the drugs. The following morning Harland drove to Wellington to board the Interislander ferry to Picton at 8.30pm. But at midnight, as Harland drove off the ferry and on to the Picton wharf, armed police swooped. Inside the Nike bag was 1.15kg of meth, worth $1.15m on the street, a further $2930 and three cellphones. But the Interislander bust was just the start of a joint police

operation and 60min later police stormed Catley’s Christchurch home, known to be the Rebels club rooms. A sawn-off .22 rifle was found, along with a small amount of meth, more than $5200, and Rebels paraphernalia. Later that morning another home in Greenlane, Auckland, also listed to Catley, was raided and 12.5g of meth was found, some in plastic lock bags; along with several glass “P” pipes, scales, $152,100 of cash in a wardrobe safe, $6790 strewn across the lounge, and $4000 in a Subaru. Catley was also found to be in possession of a Taser. In court, defence counsel Mathew Goodwin disputed the

Crown’s calculation for the value of the meth in the Nike bag. He said estimates from 2015 show that, per gram, meth was $600 to $700. However, Goodwin and the Crown accepted there was a level of sophistication to the drug trade. But the court heard that the kingpin of the operation has escaped prosecution for the trade because of a lack of evidence linking him to the crimes. “The person that rented the car for Mr Harland, both parties

agree, is at the top level of the chain. He’s in charge of everything,” Mr Goodwin said. He added Catley was a “raging” meth addict and was brought into the drug operation “late in the piece.” “He dipped his paws into it and [that’s why] his fingerprints are on the packages.” Justice Mark Woolford said although Catley wasn’t the top dog in the trade he was “certainly involved in the logistical chain.” “You had some leadership role in the gang. Either way I’m satis-

fied that you played a meaningful role.” Judge Woolford said Catley was the “treasurer” for the Rebels and trusted with significant amounts of money. “Even if higher members were involved, senior members imposed significant trust and responsibility in you.” However, when sentencing Catley, Judge Woolford said there were genuine elements of remorse and noted Catley’s addiction motivated him to offend. “You can relate to what your drug customers are going through given your own use. Methamphetamine offending has an enormous impact on society.” He said Catley’s family, of whom his mum, dad and aunt were in court, wanted to see him “change in the future and head down a different course.” Goodwin said his client had kicked his drug habit after time in custody, in spite of the “temptations in the prison system.” After Catley was sentenced on his three drugs and one weapons-related charges, he was led away to the cells, past his tearful family in the public gallery. Woolford asked the young man’s emotional mother to offer her son “continuing support.” Harland is due to be sentenced next week. – NZ Herald

Bypass takes shape THIS IS what the Western Belfast Bypass looks like two years after work started. The New Zealand Transport Agency released drone footage this week of the $122 million project which will see a new four-lane, 5km stretch of highway constructed. Bypassing Belfast, it will extend the Christchurch Northern Motorway (SH1) and connect into State Highway 1/ Johns Rd, west of The Groynes entrance. The bypass is part of the Government’s Christchurch Roads of National Significance programme, a multi-million dollar plan to make it easier and safer to travel throughout Christchurch and the Canterbury region. NZTA Christchurch highways manager Colin Knaggs said the project, which got under way two years ago this month, is about 80 per cent complete. “Over 375,000 hours have been worked on this project so far and it is progressing well as this drone footage shows,” Mr Knaggs said. “The Fulton Hogan construction team are currently focusing on three new bridges which will carry the Western Belfast Bypass above Groynes Dr and

Dickeys Rd, and over a new onramp that will link Main North Rd to the Northern Motorway.” These three structures are a major part of the project and are now close to being finished which is a great milestone for the project team. Mr Knaggs said a lot of the work that went into these bridges is underground, hidden from view. “Before the project team could start building they had to carry out ground improvement work, constructing around 2400 columns of gravel and stone into the ground to make it denser,” he said. “This reduces the effects of liquefaction and ensures the

WEKA PASS RAILWAY

bridge embankments remain stable, preventing damage to the bridge structures during an earthquake.” In addition, more than 30 steel encased reinforced concrete piles support each structure and extend 18 to 20m below ground level. The drone footage shows the 2km long mid-section of the project which has been out of public view during construction. “Aside from some road marking and other minor finishing touches, this section of the project is also close to being finished,” Mr Knaggs said. The bypass is expected to be complete by early 2018.

Baxter returns home •Form page 1 Mackenzie Kane had given up on ever seeing her little dog again. Baxter escaped one evening in March last year, after someone left their garage door open. She had done everything she could to try to find him – walked the streets, posted on Facebook groups, and called the pound and the city council so many times they knew her by name. Every few weeks she would get another call about a bichon frise someone had found, and every time she would again be hopeful it might be Baxter – but each time her hopes would be dashed. “I gave up hope by the end of it. It’s kind of heart-breaking. Every time I saw a bichon on the street I’d wonder, is it him?” she said. On Monday, she got the call she had been waiting more than a year for. Baxter had been found. Mackenzie’s mother, Christine Kane, picked Baxter up. He looked a little scruffy, but well fed. As soon as Mackenzie finished work she drove straight to see him. She said it was an emotional reunion, with a lot of wet kisses. “I was worried after 14 months he wouldn’t recognise me, but he did. He did his party trick, which

was dancing on his back legs, and he was doing his excited whimper,” she said. Baxter was microchipped and wearing a collar with his dog registration number on it, which he was still wearing when found in Hornby. Mackenzie said someone must have been feeding him over the past year and she was grateful for that, but if they had taken him to any vet or called the city council, they could have easily found the family and saved a lot of heartbreak. She was just glad to have him back, she said. “We’ll never know where he’s been. Baxter must have some stories, but he can’t tell us,” she said.

Brownlee put on spot over knowledge „„ By David Fisher TENSION OVER the rules governing the release of Government-held information to the public have led to questions over Gerry Brownlee’s knowledge of the Official Information Act. Mr Brownlee the Minister of Foreign Affairs, told the New Zealand Herald he had experienced “frustration” over uncertainty about when information could be released to the public and when it could be properly withheld. In an effort to get more details, Mr Brownlee, the former Minister supporting Christchurch Regenertion, sent the Office of the Ombudsman an Official Information Act request. The problem? A basic principle of the OIA is that offices of Parliament – including the Office of the Ombudsman – are not covered by the legislation. Documents released to the Herald show Mr Brownlee’s request failed to result in the documents he asked for and instead led to a meeting with Chief Ombudsman Judge Peter Boshier – who he called “Mr Boshier” throughout an interview on the

issue with the Herald. Herald: “It’s Judge Boshier isn’t it?” Mr Brownlee: “I don’t think so.” Herald: “He’s still a judge.” Mr Brownlee: “You can call him what you want. I don’t believe he has a warrant.” Judge Boshier – and, yes, he retains his title – would not be interviewed for this story but documents released through the Official Information Act show reflected tensions inside the Government. He wrote that after meeting Mr Brownlee he was “genuinely worried” the Government be-

lieved the rules had changed and the Office of the Ombudsman wanted “everything released”. The Official Information Act is designed to make Ministers and officials accountable, and to allow the public greater involvement in the creation and operation of laws and policies. But it has come under pressure in recent years with changes in Government structure, practice and changes in technology. As a result, a 2015 review by the Office of the Ombudsman found “ministerial officials pressured agencies to alter their responses” and mixed advice on how to respond to requests.

It followed a State Services Commission survey which found just 24 per cent of public servants were familiar with the Ombudsman’s Official Information Act guidelines. And it came after criticism over the Government’s handling of OIA requests, including former Prime Minister John Key’s admission the Government deliberately delayed releasing information if it suited its purposes to do so. Mr Brownlee told the Herald: “Of course I know the Office [of the Ombudsman] is not subject to the OIA. “I was trying to make the point that if you want to have a truly

free and open society . . . the Ombudsman’s office is not a Star Chamber or an inquisitor. It’s a body that’s designed to treat all New Zealanders fairly and that means us [government] too.” He said he had “discussions with Mr Boshier that left me with questions” and he hoped the OIA request would provide answers. The paper trail between Mr Brownlee’s office and the Office of the Ombudsman showed he made his OIA request after learning Judge Boshier had overturned a decision by the Earthquake Commission to withhold information being sought under the OIA. Mr Brownlee is Minister Responsible for the EQC. Mr Brownlee referred to a statement that the Office of the Ombudsman intended to carry out a series of “proactive investigations” into OIA practices by those subject to the Act. He stated that he sought “under the provisions of the OIA” any “memos, emails, phone records, meeting agendas, dates on which this matters was discussed and any other material relating to proactive ongoing investigations.”

of Official Information Act In response, Judge Boshier said: “I am heartened by your interest in this area.” While he added that he would “greatly appreciate the opportunity to discuss this with you in person”, none of the information Mr Brownlee sought was supplied. Instead, Judge Boshier and Mr Brownlee met on September 8 in a conversation that left the Chief Ombudsman with a feeling of “unease”. The comment is revealed in an email from Judge Boshier to Andrew Kibblewhite, chief executive of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, who had a staff member at the meeting. Judge Boshier wrote: “Unless I am mistaken, there is a perception that our Office wants everything released. The Minister approached this meeting in quite a businesslike fashion, and I think the reason for that was a genuine perception that the rules have changed and that we are pushing for a wider range of ministerial advice and briefings to be released. “I am genuinely worried about this perception.” He told Mr Kibblewhite he hoped the briefing he got from his staffer showed “the rules have

not changed at all”. Judge Boshier took over the role in December 2015 and has been regarded by some as overseeing a sea-change in the Office of the Ombudsman, which was struggling under the burden of a massive workload and investigations which were long-delayed. But his approach has caused nervousness in some parts of government after the office’s support for the release of information traditionally believed to be safe from scrutiny. That has included advice from officials, legal advice and other closely held material. Mr Brownlee told the Her-

ald he felt “frustration,” rejecting any suggestion his ill-aimed OIA request was placing pressure on the Office of the Ombudsman. “I appreciate the importance of the OIA in a democracy,” he said. He said there was a lack of certainty around when information should be withheld from public release in cases of “free and frank advice” from officials - withheld so as to promote open advice to ministers – or commercial information, which was also considered sensitive. He said he accepted everything that was done in government would be made public eventually - but some informa-

tion needed to operate under a cloak to be most effective for citizens. Auckland University of Technology lecturer Greg Treadwell, who has carried out doctoral research on the OIA, viewed Mr Brownlee’s letter to the Office of the Ombudsman and asked: “What’s he doing?” At first glance, he said it appeared Mr Brownlee didn’t know basic OIA principles even though he was approaching the end of a third term as Cabinet minister. “This is why I think it is a deliberate shot across the bows. He appears to be angry with the Ombudsman’s [EQC] decision and that seems almost inappropriate to start demanding voluminous amounts of information. That’s not quite ministerial behaviour.” Labour’s Megan Woods, who speaks on Canterbury issues, said during Mr Brownlee’s period as Minister for the EQC, people in Christchurch had resorted to using the OIA to get updates on their claims over earthquake damage. “The ability to do that was hugely important to people.”​ – NZ Herald

CCTV cameras for Woolston „„ By Noah Graham STREET surveillance cameras have gone up on Ferry Rd in an attempt to thwart robberies in the Woolston Village. Last week, city council installed two sets of CCTV cameras on traffic lights outside Cycle Around Again and the Woolston Tavern to help monitor the road and protect Woolston Village shops. The Woolston Discounter has been a frequent target over the past year with nine robberies taking place in seven months. It was hit again on Sunday when a man armed with a pistol attempted to take cigarettes and lollies but dropped most of the items on the way out of the store. Store owner Sujan Barra said he had not been told of the surveillance cameras but hoped they would prevent his shop from being a frequent target. The Ferry Rd Night ‘n Day store has also been a target, having been robbed 10 times in the past nine months. Owner of the convenience store David Lee said with the cameras installed he “certainly feels safer.”

Missing man: Police still tight-lipped „„ By Kurt Bayer POLICE ARE remaining tightlipped over their investigation into the out-of-character disappearance of builder Michael Craig McGrath. Mr McGrath, 49, was last seen at his Checketts Ave home, Halswell, on May 21. A large police investigation is under way to find him. Yesterday morning, detectives showed Mr McGrath’s Michael family, includMcGrath ing his mother, Adrienne, and brother Simon, through his deserted home. Police have spent several days examining the property, but by yesterday an army-style tent used to store evidence had been removed. The house remained taped off, with a mobile police base, a security guard and two unmarked police cars parked on the street. Police started knocking his neighbours’ doors last Thursday and remained in the area yesterday. Approached for an update into

MYSTERY: Police at Mr McGrath’s Halswell property.

the probe, a police spokeswoman would only say: “The missing person investigation continues. No further updates at this stage.” His brother Simon says while there will “obviously going to be all sorts of theories” about the disappearance, the family is focusing on any sightings of him or his blue 1994 Subaru Legacy station wagon. In a Facebook plea for information, Simon said: “Very unlike him to go walking – has never done so before and he has been in good spirits.”

He also wrote that the family was “up and down.” “At this stage, all we can mainly do is hope.” Simon McGrath referred other inquiries to police. Detective Inspector Darryl Sweeney, who is leading the investigation, said police “have concerns for his welfare”. It remains a missing persons investigation, police say. Missing person posters have been placed around the area. On Friday, police cordoned off his well-kept red brick property

where he lived alone. Locals say there has been a lot of police activity over the past four days. One neighbour said police came to her last Thursday wanting to eliminate her silver car from their inquiries. “It’s really strange. It has us all worried,” she said. Mr McGrath’s blue station wagon was taken away from his property – just a few doors down from where “Black Widow” Helen Milner fatally poisoned Phil Nisbet in May 2009 – at the weekend.

Detective Inspector Sweeney is appealing for sightings of the Subaru over the weekend of May 20-22 in the Halswell area. Neighbours have described Mr McGrath as a quiet man who rarely had visitors. “We hardly see him,” one neighbour said. “My kids say ‘hi’ to him when he’s out gardening and when he was out biking which he did a lot.” She said everyone was “really worried”, especially at the mounting police activity. A local shopkeeper said Mr McGrath came in occasionally – but again said he was a very quiet, solitary figure. She also had concerns for his welfare. “It’s just fingers crossed really,” she said. •Anyone who has information about Mr McGrath or has employed him in the past few weeks is asked to phone Christchurch police on 03 363 7400 and cite file number 170523/6008. Information can also be provided anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. - NZ Herald

Thou shall not steal

„„ By Andrew King PEOPLE ATTENDING church during the evening have been coming out to find their cars broken into, with one parishioner losing $5000. Cars parked at St Teresa of Lisieux Parish on Puriri St, Riccarton, and Our Lady of Victories Parish on Main South Rd, Sockburn, have been targeted on Saturday and Sunday nights in recent weeks while the owners attended mass. St Teresa priest Father Antoine Thomas said little things like passports and bags had been taken from cars. A woman returned to her car a few months ago to find it had been broken into and $5000 missing. Father Antoine said he did not know why the woman had $5000 in her vehicle. “There must be a really wellorganised gang getting around. We have installed more lighting, spoken with community watch and asked for volunteers to patrol the car park,” he said. Sixty-four cars were broken into last week in the Riccarton, Upper Riccarton and Sockburn areas. Two cars were stolen and another four attempts had been made to steal other cars after the owners

discovered the ignition barrels had been forced, police said. Majority of the cars were targeted on Centennial Ave, Rattray St, Matipo St, Mandeville St and Brockworth Pl, with 20 broken into on Saturday night alone.​ It comes after about 12 vehicles were broken into around the Three Elements Chinese Restaurant and the New Zealand Institute of Sport’s Christchurch campus car park on Wharenui Rd, Upper Riccarton, a week

earlier. Said Senior Sergeant Pete Stills: “These thefts are a pain in the proverbial to the owners as there is very little taken normally, but the clean-up cost is often timeconsuming and costly.’’ •Anyone with information about the thefts can phone 363 7400. Alternatively, information can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Pensioner waits to hear if he will be charged „„ By Gabrielle Stuart POLICE WILL not say if they plan to charge a pensioner over the crash near Sumner which tragically killed his wife, 73-year-old Maureen Imrie. Bruce Imrie was driving home with his wife in the afternoon on March 25 when he crashed. Witnesses saw the car drive straight off the road, crashing through a barrier and down a bank into the sea. They were able to pull Mr Imrie out of the car, but the car was swept away to sea by an undertow before they were able to rescue Mrs Imrie. A police spokeswoman said the investigation into the crash was still ongoing. She would not say if police were considering laying charges. It comes as West Coast man Michael Saunders is facing charges over the death of his two-year-old daughter, Emily,

who was swept from the sport utility vehicle he was driving across a flooded river, and the death of Barry Petrie, 66, who died while trying to save her. Last year Christchurch man Tula Ram Chhetri was charged and convicted of dangerous driving causing death over the crash which killed his wife, Mon Chhetri, and baby son, Aaron Chhetri. He had been driving the family home to Christchurch, and pulled out in front of another car at an intersection. Mr Imrie said he was not worried by the investigation, but just hoped it would be completed soon. He said he had told police all he could, but said he had “blanked out” before the crash. He was still struggling with the loss of his wife of 55 years, but was being supported by his family, he said.

Manson family Canty’s best kept secret Pioneers overcome adversity

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart SHIPWRECKS, AN armed robbery, and a baby born at sea – they were just some of the challenges one of Christchurch’s first pioneering families faced, yet their names are barely remembered. Samuel and Jean Manson and their children arrived in Lyttelton with the Deans brothers in 1843, years before the First Four Ships arrived in 1850. But while the Deans family is widely honoured for their pioneering work, the Manson family, and the other settlers with them, the Gebbie family, are not well known. Yesterday, descendants of the Manson family gathered at Deans Bush to honour them, placing a memorial plaque and planting an oak tree dedicated to them. A great-grandaughter of Mr and Mrs Manson, Janet O’Loughlin, has gathered a lot of the family’s history in a book. She said they had some incredible adventures. Mr Manson, a carpenter, made the four-month journey from Scotland to work for the Deans, travelling with his heavily pregnant wife and two young children. Their baby was born two weeks into the voyage, delivered by the ship doctor – and meanwhile their three-year-old daughter caught measles and their twoyear-old son had to be treated for a bad cough. While wealthier families such as the Deans stayed in cabins, the Mason family were in cramped berths below deck, Mrs O’Loughlin said. “The migrant sailing ships were set low in the water, their decks constantly being swept by heavy seas which leaked onto the berths below deck, making

them damp and unpleasant and causing hordes of cockroaches to emerge from their hiding places,” she said in the book, Mindful of My Origin. According to the ship records, there were 40 cases of measles and some of whooping cough during the 150-day voyage, and two children died during the journey. But the Manson family survived and made it safely to Nelson. From there they travelled with the Deans brothers and Gebbie family to Wellington, and then to a whalers’ settlement at Port Levy. They travelled by boat up the Avon River to Riccarton, where Mr Manson built two homes for the families, using wooden pegs because their nails had been left behind. While in Scotland the Manson and Gebbie families would have

been classed servants of the Deans, in the new settlement they lived and worked together, Mrs O’Loughlin said. “They all pitched in together, I don’t think there was any hierarchy there. The Deans, being lawyers, were very helpful when the Mansons and Gebbies were buying their own land. So they had to rely on one another to survive,” she said. After helping to build and establish the Deans settlement, Mr Manson and Mr Gebbie negotiated with local Maori to lease land on the other side of the hills between Governors Bay and Charteris Bay, and they also brought 14 cows each from the Deans brothers. They set off to their new home in 1845 in canoes, but halfway there a storm came up and capsized the boat. The families survived, but lost a lot of their provisions and spent a cold night

sheltering in a cave. Mrs Manson was again heavily pregnant at the time, and gave birth to their fifth child later that month, while the family were living in a tent. After a year’s work establishing their farm, they had stored up 700 pounds of butter and 300 pounds of cheese ready to sell. But they were hit by another disaster at sea. The ship taking all their produce to sell at the port sunk during the journey, and they lost everything. After the disaster Mr Manson began working for other settlers to make money, leaving Mrs Manson alone to manage the milking, the running of the farm and their five children, all under six-years-old. Later the same year, three men from the Blue Cap Gang arrived at the settlement claiming to be shipwrecked sailors.

Mrs Manson gave them food and beds for the night, and directed them to the nearby Greenwood mill to find work. The Greenwood family also took the men in and gave them work, but when everyone was gathered for the evening meal that night the gang held up the household at gunpoint, stealing their money, guns and matches. The men were later arrested, but after the experience several Maori men stayed on the farm with Mrs Manson to protect the family while Mr Manson was away for work. The family’s luck eventually turned, and they went on to buy and farm more than 30 land plots in Banks Peninsula. They had 17 children over 24 years, and their descendents made a huge contribution to the developing colony, Mrs O’Loughlin said. The family’s stone cottage at Orton Bradley Park is now the oldest surviving stone building in Canterbury. It was badly damaged in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes but is being rebuilt, and is set to open as a museum and information centre. Three oak trees were originally planted in August 1994 commemorating the Deans, Gebbie and Manson families’ work, but the Manson tree had to be cut down in April. The new tree was planted in its place.

Darfield water judged the best in New Zealand „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding DARFIELD HAS the best-tasting drinking water in New Zealand. A blind taste test at the New Zealand Water Industry Operators Group conference decided the township has the tastiest water. It comes after a major upgrade to the Darfield water supply in 2014 with the installation of two deep ground

bores, a 1000m3 concrete reservoir and a booster pumping station. A district council spokeswoman said the bores source the artesian water from deep underground meaning the water is naturally filtered providing a safe supply. Mayor Sam Broughton, who lives in Darfield, said it was nice to celebrate some good news after the improvements were made.

He said the two bores provide an increase in reliability over the summer and if work needed to be done on either of the bores the supply will still be continuous. “I do enjoy the taste of water. It’s fresh,” Mr Broughton said.  Darfield Community Committee chairman and Malvern Butchery owner Paddy McKay said the water quality speaks for itself and it is pretty good.  The judging panel made up

of representatives from the WIOG, chemical company IXOM and Altitude Brewing decided Darfield had the besttasting water based on how it looks, smells and tastes. The improved quality is a large turn-around in the township’s water supply. In 2012, animal effluent in Darfield’s water supply was the cause of a gastroenteritis outbreak affecting more than 110 people.

Doing their bit for the rebuild The Brown family has been in the grocery industry for 145 years – and in August they will open their newest supermarket, FreshChoice City Market. Bridget Rutherford reports

FOR THE Browns, the grocery industry is a family business. They have been providing Cantabrians with fresh produce, food and bakery supplies for 145 years. And come August, they will open their newest store, FreshChoice City Market, in The Crossing on Lichfield St. It wasn’t a decision Neville and Heather Brown made lightly. The city was suffering following the devastating February 22, 2011, earthquake. Heather said they wanted to do their part in its regeneration. “For us it was about the CBD and what we could do to contribute to the rebuild with what we know how to do. “We understand that supermarkets are part of essential services and are important in building communities. They are pivotal points for people to meet and feel comfortable. We want people to feel at home and they are part of our business. Everything we do, we do with them at the top of our mind.” She said their family was committed to Christchurch. “A supermarket in the CBD was a way Neville and I thought we could help the city regenerate and bring back a sense of normality.” It hasn’t been a quick process. Heather said they first approached the Carter Group in 2012 about including a supermarket in the CBD, and it had been a huge job trying to bring it to fruition. Although FreshChoice City

Market has taken about five years to develop, the family journey began in 1872. It was then when Neville’s great, great, great grandparents Charlie and Annie Chivers opened the Otipua General Store near Timaru. In the 1930s, his great uncle, John Renfrew Brown, owned a bakery and delivery truck in Dunedin. Neville bought his first supermarket at the age of 22 in 1972. In total, the Browns have owned seven supermarkets across South Canterbury and Canterbury. They have owned FreshChoice Barrington since 1993. But the tradition doesn’t stop there. The Brown’s three sons grew up

working in their supermarkets during school holidays and spent a lot of time in them. After going overseas and taking different career paths, they all decided to come back and go into the same business. Their eldest, Julian and his wife Kirsty, bought FreshChoice Parklands in 2005. Their middle son, Nick, owns

SuperValue Sumner and The Bottle-O Sumner, and is supported by his wife Anna. And their youngest, Scot and wife Jenna, own private beer and wine labels, including Black Thistle Wines and Boss Brewing Craft Beers. Scot also works in his parents’ businesses. Neville and Heather are

pleased to have all of their sons in the industry. “It’s a very exciting business to be in, it’s constantly changing and challenging,” Heather said. Neville has been in the business for 51 years, while Heather had marked just under 30. But they say they could not continue to do it without their customers and loyal, hardworking and skilled staff. “The attention to detail that’s required to get everything right, every day, is probably the biggest challenge.” Heather said they had a great team of people around them. “Over the years you built loyalty, you build skill and you build a culture. You couldn’t do it without the expertise, the loyalty and the hard work of a lot of people. They are why this business is so stimulating and rewarding.” Although the family has been in the industry for more than a century – they are moving with the times. Heather said they spent a lot of time overseas looking at what they could do differently with FreshChoice City Market, and what was required in the new era with the rebuild. “That’s why we wanted to do something slightly different than the traditional format. FreshChoice City Market would expand on the fresh, artisan, locally-produced and grown products highlighting and showcasing some of Canterbury’s finest food specialists,” she said. “The supermarket will also be providing a full range of everyday groceries.” It would also have a convenient espresso bar at the entrance to the store for people wanting a quick caffeine shot on the run, she said. “We will be providing a onestop full service range of the best products at the best prices for busy people working in the city, for shoppers, and tourists. “FreshChoice City Market will be part of your day, every day.”

Cathedral solution sought Budget falls short CHRIST CHURCH Cathedral is once again at the centre of much — often heated — debate. Its future is a heritage issue, a community issue and a church issue but it is not a political issue. With that in mind, I hosted a meeting of Christchurch Members of Parliament late last week to seek cross-party support for the Government’s commitment to brokering a solution. I firmly believe we need an agreed solution and we need it sooner rather than later. Agreement is vital because any decision that ties everyone up in court for five to 10 years is no decision at all. Immediately after the meeting I released the Cathedral Working Group Recommendation Report, which recommends reinstatement. It estimates the cost at $105 million — to be funded by philanthropic and public donations, the church’s insurance proceeds and support from central and local government. About half of Christchurch wants to see the Cathedral reinstated, the other half wants something new and more modern, but everyone believes

Nicky Wagner

we need a decision as soon as possible. As a resident of Christchurch, I share the community’s frustration, and as Regeneration Minister, I’m committed to helping break the current deadlock. I will continue to work closely with the Anglican Church, the city council and other key stakeholders to discuss all possible solutions.

Also late last week, Mayor Lianne Dalziel and I released the terms of reference for a pre-feasibility study into a new multi-use arena. The pre-feasibility study will consider the size, cost and viability of an arena, as well as opportunities for a wider ‘Arena Precinct’. The terms of reference include a number of important considerations, particularly around the operational and financial viability of the arena model. Any potential development will likely need to be a multiuse sports and entertainment venue to maximise opportunities for regional, national and international events. Christchurch Stadium Trust, which is undertaking the prefeasibility study, will report back by the end of July. •Nicky Wagner is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

BUDGET 2017 was a let-down. National squandered the chance to rebuild our battered health and education systems and to address the housing crisis. Instead, they’ve gone for an election year Budget with an eye for the upcoming election, not the 21st century. It doesn’t have new thinking in it, it doesn’t show how our economy is going to create decent work with higher wages, and it doesn’t support Kiwis to get the knowledge and training opportunities to participate in the new economy. Instead, what we saw were the classic election sweeteners of tax cuts. In spite of the rhetoric, the reality is National’s package does not deliver for those most in need. While I’ll get a tax cut of around $20 per week, the person who cleans my Wellington office receives around $1 per week. This is neither right nor fair. Labour can’t support an approach that increases inequality. I know that for people in Wigram, any extra money gained through these tax cuts is an illusion. The extra money will be eaten up with the increased cost of visiting the GP that doctors warned about following Thurs-

day’s Budget. They will also have to continue to dip deeper into their pockets to help out the local school as there is an $80m shortfall in education funding. Tragically, there was nothing to release the pressure on our cash-strapped Canterbury District Health Board, which is struggling to balance the broader health needs of the city with the specific mental health crisis. Currently, the CBHB is operating on a deficit of $45.27 million – and this funding increase of $39.68 million doesn’t cover it. What we need are some fresh ideas to make sure all New Zealanders receive their fair share of the prosperity. A Labour Government will invest in a health system that meets the need of our growing population. We will invest in an education system that prepares people for the 21st century. We will clean up our rivers and make the Kiwi dream of home-ownership a reality again.

Last week The Star reported three of the city’s power brokers, Mayor Lianne Dalziel, Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner and CDHB acting chief executive Mary Gordon had not talked about the possibility of turning part of Hagley Park into temporary car parking for the hospital Readers respond to the hospital car parking debacle Alan Hane – Build a large underground car park beneath Hagley Park fully security camera monitored, with an underground tunnel to the hospital basement floor. Could

Cheryl Hanham – Actually stop allowing Wilsons car park to monopolies empty grounds. Get them back and put a couple of car park buildings up instead. Have look at the app ParkMate, it’s unbelievable how many Wilsons there are. Rohanne Compton – Have the people who support this thought about the logistics of getting in and out of this part of the park? Then getting across to the hospital if you’re disabled? Also bet the support disappears once they realise it won’t be free parking. Rohanne Compton – Maybe they need to reintroduce parking charges at the hospital. I’ve seen people parking at the hospital using the disabled parking and have noticed that many are actually very able

bodied people accompanying a disabled/elderly person and wondered why they don’t drop off the patient then use the park ’n’ ride or the nearby Wilsons parks and leave the disabled parking for the unaccompanied patients/visitors who really do need to park close. Is it because the disabled parking is free? Elizabeth Lubbers – Build one beside the outpatients building in the park if there is enough room, no one uses that area. And when or if the outpatients building goes turn it into car parks for the disabled and expecting mums that are coming in to give birth. Michael Adams – Just stop pretending, and rename it Wilsontown. Then demolish the Cathedral and put a Wilsons on the site. This city is crazy. Deb Flanagan – No way. It’s a park leave it alone, where is the

vision. New Yorkers don’t suggest turning its precious green space Central Park into a car park. And let’s be honest temporary would end up being permanent – once lost gone forever. Sally Bowring – After the earthquakes there was something put in place so people could park along Riccarton Ave on the grass. Were emergency powers called upon for this? And , if so, could they be again until a permanent solution is found. Sadly, and actually very sadly the various bodies involved can’t seem to be able to work together. Is this a case for a Mediator?

The Star

Beverley Murray – Just do it. How many people will struggle to the doors until there is a permanent remedy. Ridiculous state of affairs. Nic Davies – Yes 100 per cent agree let’s get something done and built. Tina Bailey – Absolutely not. Sort out a permanent solution asap. Car parking building should be rebuilt on previous site opposite the new outpatients site. Where has the insurance money gone from the old parking and oral health buildings that have been demolished?

HEAT YOUR WORLD Design statement Fireplaces are a key architectural design element to the home and are often the focal point of a room. Gone are the decorative mantels and in their place are bold design statements with angular corners and modern shapes. We love The Hanging Fireplace – a sculptural piece that is as much an investment in art as a solution to warmth during the winter months.

Whether it’s lighting the fire or flicking a switch, you’ll never regret installing the right interior heating solutions.

Store with style A new way to store firewood inside the home, the Redondo firewood holder by OtraForma in Christchurch becomes an instant feature in the room and is a definite favourite this season. www.otraforma.co.nz

Well-known tailor Mark van Roosmalen’s building was destroyed in the February 22, 2011, earthquake and moved his business into a house on a Fendalton street – but his neighbours want him gone

Latest Christchurch news at www.

Erina Parks – Far out, it’s a tailoring business, for goodness sake! You people have got no show of making him leave – after all Manchester St residents can’t get the city council to act on the prostitutes leaving their rubbish in residents’ front gardens. You neighbours should be ashamed of yourselves – you’re surrounded by commercial activity. This smells of personal vendetta.

Dani Cooper – What is wrong with these people? He’s in a business area anyway and he’s a tailor! I also think the fuss over the funeral home [Rochdale St] is disrespectful selfish and rude. Seriously, I would much rather live in my rented home in North Beach than be a stuck up self-absorbed homeowner from Fendalton. All they do is complain.

Val Proffitt – As I was trying to say . . . Fendalton people, how about starting to live in the real world. Good on you Mark van Roosmalen, I hope your business remains very successful.

Allan John Fidler – I fully sympathise with the residents of Hamilton Ave and Otara St. Fancy having to live with the deafening sound of scissors and the screeching of needle and thread going through cloth. Back in the 1960s Fendaltonians were reputed to be NZ’s worst snobs and obviously nothing has changed.

Stella Wyn – I wonder what is wrong with Hamilton Ave area. Two to three years back houses were hot in auction, but past few months, they are not popular. I’m puzzled. Fendalton Village is always too crowded with cars. Anyway, it is probably better to have him than student rental next door.

Owen Duffy – I don’t know what is worse, these people trying to close a business down. Or them buying a property in Ilam and trying to say they are in Fendalton. Snobbery at its worst.

Josie White – I operate an interior design business from home in St Martins with legal street signage. Not once has anyone complained. Give Mark a break please Fendalton and be thankful you have an amazing tailor in your vicinity.

Corey Humm – Typical Fendalton. Guess they asked him what school he went to and didn’t like the answer.

Helen Baker – The people of Fendalton are lucky to have such a

.kiwi

service in the area. It doesn’t set a precedence at all under the terms of the quakes effect on business in the city. It was a unique situation that enabled this. How precious people can be. Cherry Cornelius – I find it almost as offensive that this rubbish is reported. Residents of any area need to we welcoming stop any kind of abuse at its roots and it seems in Christchurch. It may have a deep seating in Fendalton. Cherie Trotter – Nearly every suburb in NZ has a dressmaker/ alterations person working out of their spare bedroom of their home. Come on neighbours, get on with your life. Janys Rebecca Harrison – Get over yourselves! Just be glad that he’s a tailor, instead of someone dodgy. Carolyn Fraser – What a bunch of snobs. Who do they think they are? They would look down their noses at any one. Keep up the good work Mark van Roosemalen. Francesca De Angelis – Mark is by far the best – and only true tailor in Christchurch. These people have clearly too much time in their hands to complain for the sake of complaining. Don’t buy a house in front of a mall if parking overflow irritates you.

From life with the Royals to healthcare „„ By Simon Collins WHEN SHE was caught in the grip of the February 22, 2011, earthquake, Alex Steele was shocked into thinking about what she had done with her life. She decided to become a nurse. She had already done far more than most people dream of. She had managed several hundred staff at Buckingham Palace, and later forged a career in insurance. But as she ran down the stillshaking stairs of the cracked AMI Building six years ago, her life perspective changed. “The buildings to the side of us had fallen over,” she said. “I immediately looked over to where my husband’s building was. The CTV building was between us. It was on fire, all I could see was smoke and dust and I immediately thought it was his building.” It wasn’t, and the couple found each other in the chaos of Latimer Square before her husband realised that his scooter could be useful and started ferrying rescue workers where they needed to go. Alex took a long walk home to Ilam. “All the way home there was liquefaction and power lines coming down. There was

nowhere to run. I was thinking, ‘This could be it,’” she said. Life could be over. “I had a colleague who was a volunteer ambulance officer. As soon as we came out of the building, he took off to the CTV building and worked till 3am pulling people out of the rubble. “I thought, I would have liked to help people in a better way than dealing with their insurance claims. “I thought, healthcare is really what I wanted to do, and that could have been my time, and how upset I would have been had I spent my life not pursuing what I wanted to be doing.” It is her second degree. Her

first, from Canterbury University, was in English and history, and she walked straight out of that into her “first grown-up job” at Buckingham Palace. She was 22, freshly arrived on her OE. “I saw it advertised and applied. I thought even if I don’t get it, just going for the interview will be an amazing experience,” she said. She was hired as one of four people managing 450 to 500 tour guides, wardens and other staff for Royal Collection Enterprises – the palace’s “business arm.” The job involved recruiting and training staff and organising events such as charity fundraisers, often attended by the royals.

“I’ve met all the royal family. If there were charities that they were patrons of they would be there, or sometimes you would meet the more junior royals in passing,” she said. “To meet the Queen, you would be invited to a reception or a cocktail party – they take really good care of their staff. “You got to go to the Queen’s box at the Royal Albert Hall, and tickets to Wimbledon, cocktail evenings with the Lord Chamberlain, all sorts of wonderful things.” But Alex had left her husband – then still her fiance – back in Christchurch, doing his doctorate. After three years at the palace, she came home. She got a job at AMI, rising to be its training and development

manager. She and her husband both transferred within their companies to Auckland six months after the quake, and Alex kept working for AMI part-time right through her three-year nursing course. She is now working night shifts in a general surgical ward at Mercy Ascot Hospital at Greenlane. “I did have that nagging doubt about what if I get to my first clinical placement and find it’s not for me,” she said. “After my first day I thought, this is what I’m supposed to be doing. I was really relieved. I felt very strongly that this is what I should be doing with my life, and I kind of haven’t looked back from there.” – NZ Herald

Our People Pursuing a love of learning

Christine O’Neill

St Thomas of Canterbury College principal Christine O’Neill announced last week she would be stepping down at the end of the year, after 15 years at the school. She spoke with Gabrielle Stuart Before you, no other woman had ever become a principal of a New Zealand Catholic boys’ school. Did you think back when you first applied for the job that you would get it? Well, it was really bizarre, actually. I’m from family of four sisters, I have three daughters, and before this I had taught for 10 years at Villa Maria, a girls’ school. I had taught a few St Thomas’ boys while I was at Villa, which is why I applied for it, but I don’t think I seriously thought I’d get it. But I got offered the job in December. So I spent the holidays stressing about it, thinking what do I know about boys? Was it as challenging as you expected? No, since I started here, I’ve never regretted it. There have been challenges. There were plenty of male candidates that applied for the job, and most of the teachers here are male. But I found very quickly that you proved yourself in your performance. The men here were very fair and very loyal. I imagine it’s been a pretty emotional few weeks since you made the announcement you would be stepping down – what has it been like? Well, we had another lovely assembly this morning, with the boys all singing, and after that I thought what have I done? I don’t regret it, but leaving is going to be really hard. For me been a really hard decision because this is such a great community and I have dedicated a good part of my life to working here. But you know how people say you’re ready to go. The job is very complex and challenging and energy-draining. It’s like John Key said – not that I’m comparing myself to him, but I think the motivation is similar. The school is absolutely humming right now, and it’s time for another leader to step up. What have been some of the highlights? I’m really proud of the increased diversity in the school. When I started it was about two per cent Maori and Pasifika students, but now it’s about 40 per cent, with a rapidly growing Filipino community. Another real highlight is that this year 39 of our 41 staff have either completed or are com-

pleted post-grad study. It’s a big commitment and I don’t know of any other school in the country that has that happening. We’ve also put a lot of work into creating a restorative culture, working with young men when they make mistakes, to take the fear and blame out of it, and keep them accountable but work in a problem-solving way. It’s about being accountable as a school beyond the school gate, rather than just kicking boys out. Without fail, every boy who has gone himself into a tricky situation here has been honest and willing to take responsibility for it, and that’s right to even the boys who have been in and out of jail. To see boys like that turn around and graduate year 13 is incredibly satisfying, just as satisfying as seeing boys reach the pinnacle of academic achievement. What have been the biggest challenges for you? Last year there was the big battle around racism (When a Christ’s College under-14 rugby player was accused of racially abusing a St Thomas’ student at a game). It’s hard to take those stands, but I think that’s one particular incident where you’ve got to honour your community. It would be easy to let it slide, but that would be wrong. And we’re richer for standing up to it. You’ve faced personal challenges while principal – like your battle with cancer. How did you handle that while doing such a demanding job?

It was a really hard time, but there were two things that got me through. I’m lucky to have really supportive husband and really rich family life, and without that it would be a really lonely existence. I also have a very strong leadership team, four men who work with me at the core of what we do here. We go through both our personal and professional journeys together, so that doesn’t mean we always agree, but that’s been a massive support. I don’t do my job alone. And if I’m ever feeling a bit down, because it can be a highly political job and you deal with all sorts of issues, but if I’m ever overwhelmed by that I just do something with the kids. They are so uplifting to be around. You do see negative stuff about teenagers in the news, but I have so much hope for the future because they are such a good group of kids. What were your own school days like? I attended St Dominic’s in Dunedin, where we were taught by Dominican nuns. It was such a paradox, because it was a semienclosed order but yet many of the nuns had doctorates or masters degrees. So they were giving lectures at the university, then zipping back to teach at the school. On the one hand nuns, but also highly educated, empowered, professional women. So I was given a very liberal education, taught to ask questions and challenge things, with no sense of constraint or having to obey religious rules.

It was very different to most schools then, and in many ways closer to how we teach now. Did you get sent to the principal much yourself, as a child? I was a good girl at school. I was head girl and dux. But I can remember one nun, the music teacher in the priory, whose window looked out at the side entrance gate. Sometimes we’d try to slip out and get caught. Some girls snuck out for a smoke, and I didn’t smoke, but I did try to sneak out to get lunch. Why did you become a teacher? Well, I loved ancient language and classics. I really wanted to go into teaching because I loved learning. My first job was at Avonside Girls’, then I spent a year at Hillmorton High. Strangely enough, a lot of principals spent time teaching at Hillmorton, I don’t know what it is but the school seems to be a great place to learn leadership. Then I got pregnant with my first daughter, so I spent eight years out of the workforce until my girls were school age. Then I taught at Villa Maria. Did you ever teach your own girls in class? Were they allowed to call you mum? Oh, yes, that was hilarious. One used to call me mum, one used to call me Christine, and one used to awkwardly go “you there” she didn’t know what to say. So they each navigated it in their own way. But I taught them classics, so the three of us share a common

love for classics and art, so that’s a really special connection. One now lives in Auckland, one in New York and one just back from London, in Melbourne, but we all talk regularly every week. My biggest achievement is not being principal, it’s my girls. Do you have any advice for other women going into maledominated roles? Well, I do think men underestimate how challenging it can be as a female leader or CEO going into a male-dominated workplace. They tend to use very male ways to connect, like discussing sports or rubbing shoulders in a rugby game. But I think it’s about being yourself, building your competence and expertise, and building authentic relationships. So what is the next step for you? You aren’t leaving Christchurch? No, I’ll be in Christchurch at least for the immediate future. My husband manages Community Law Canterbury and he does some really interesting work there, and we have a new house in inner-city so we’re committed to see the regeneration of the city. I’m open to whatever comes my way, and this gives me six months do some exploration. I would love to still be engaged in the teaching world, but equally there may be opportunities in another field. I’m passionate about youth justice, and working with Maori and Pasifika students. So I’m open to whatever. I’ve got another career in me yet.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY... BROCCOLI, WALNUT AND COTTAGE CHEESE PIES Ingredients 12 slices Bread 1/2 cup (8 Tbsp) Butter, melted, or olive oil, for brushing 2 Eggs 6 Tbsp Cottage cheese 3 Tbsp Walnuts, chopped ½ cup Cheddar cheese, grated 1 cup Broccoli, in small florets, steamed ½ tsp Salt Directions Make bread cases by brushing one side of each slice of bread with some melted butter or oil and pressing. Buttered side down, put in to muffin pans (if using thick bread flatten the bread out a little with your hand or a rolling pin first). Bake at 170 deg C for 20 minutes or until brown and very crisp. Take them out straight away and leave to cool on a cake rake to avoid going soggy. You can keep the bread cases in an airtight container for a few days if you are not making the pies straight away. Beat the eggs and mix through

the walnuts, cheddar, steamed broccoli, salt and a good grind of pepper. Fold in the cottage cheese. You want to keep blobs of cottage cheese through the mix. Place the bread cases back in to the muffin pans and spoon in the mixture. Bake in a 180 deg C oven for 15 minutes or until set through.

Ingredients

Put all the cream, caster sugar and the very finely grated zest and juice of the lemon in a mixing bowl and whisk until mixed. Taste and add more lemon juice or sugar if needed.

Cut some small waxy potatoes into discs (leave the skin on), brush them with oil and space them out on an oven tray. Roast them until they are just soft and nicely golden coloured. Drain the swedes (keep the poaching liquid) and puree them with the roasted garlic. Add enough of the poaching liquid to achieve a firm but smooth puree. Mound up a generous teaspoon of the mash on to each disc, season well with salt and pepper and top with parsley.

Timing bulb flowering not an exact science „„ By Paul Hoek CAN BULB flowering be timed for special occasions? More often than not, this question is asked in relation to a wedding. And I can understand why – growing your own tulips, lilies or other bulbs would save money and look fantastic in bouquets or in the background of photos. Unfortunately, the timing of bulbs flowering is heavily reliant on nature. And, as Cyclones Cook and Debbie have recently reminded us, nature and weather can be fickle and hard to predict. So, the question of timing flowering for special occasions is one that is pretty well impossible for us to answer accurately. What I can do, is give you a bit more information about spring and summer flowering bulbs to help you decide whether or not it’s doable for your particular situation and region. Spring flowering bulbs In a nutshell, spring flowering bulbs (like tulips, hyacinths and daffodils) can’t just be planted later to make them flower later. Without any artificial chilling, these bulbs have to be planted in autumn (makes no difference at which point in autumn) as they require all the chilling that comes

Tulips can’t be how much rain there is, and how chilled until late March because Summer flowering bulbs early or late spring comes. the immature buds inside the Summer flowering bulbs (like The only way to make spring bulbs need to reach a certain gladioli and lilies) are a little bulbs flower later than normal is development stage before they’re easier to manipulate into flowerto plant them in pots and hold ready.

For potted daffodils or later from July right up to take them from the chiller two and hyacinths you can start chill- Christmas – but only if you keep to three weeks before you want ing earlier, in early March, and the bulbs in a good condition. them in full flower. This approach have flowers in early July. The eventual difference in won’t work with unplanted bulbs. You can also get unplanted flowering time will not be as great To make potted spring bulbs bulbs to flower earlier. But instead as the variation in planting time flower earlier, you can use the of putting them in at 9 deg C, you from July to December. This is chilling method above and simply can put them straight in at 4 deg because the soil and growing take them out early rather than C. Do this in late March and then conditions are cold in July to Seplate. plant them out in late May, they’ll tember, and bulbs planted at that

time will progress much slower than bulbs planted in October or November. Likewise, bulbs planted in December will flower much quicker as they are doing all their growing in warm soil and summer temperatures. Nevertheless, planting from July to December will see a spread of flowering times over around two to three months. So, as you can see – forcing bulbs to flower for a set time or a special occasion is by no means an exact science. But if it’s still something you’re interested in, I leave you two questions to think about. Firstly, will it ruin the big day if the bulbs haven’t flowered yet, or are already past their best? And secondly, is it worth the risk? – NZ Bulbs

SNUG: Have an ale at the Green Dragon Inn.

Hobbiton casts you under a spell „„ By Mike Yardley MATAMATA’S lush emerald pastures and roly-poly hills are happily home to Hobbiton, the ultimate cinematic shrine for set-jetters in New Zealand. Like a third of all visitors, I have never watched or read an entire story or movie, from either trilogy. But for starry-eyed Tolkien junkies, a journey here has acquired the stature of a pilgrimage. To reach the movie set entails a short drive by bus across the Alexander family’s farmland on a private sealed road, which was built by the New Zealand Army to service the convoy of crew production vehicles and equipment. Sir Peter Jackson sweet-talked the then Prime Minister, Helen Clark, to approve the road’s construction. Alighting from the bus, the bright green grass is long and lush as we trundle down the muddy track to the first hobbit house, where ‘the Hobbiton effect” suddenly washes over me. Unlike so many movie locations, Hobbiton casts you under its spell because it’s exactly the same as it appears on screen. It’s all so sweet and tender, with washing hanging on a line near a chimney poking out of a grassy mound. Baskets are plump with pumpkins, while flowers and herbs have been hung up to dry by a round yellow door. As we walked down a gravelled path, some members of my group frothed with delight, recognising it as the

REALISTIC: Hobbiton is exactly the same as it appears on screen.

spot where Frodo Baggins greeted Gandalf at the start of The Fellowship of the Ring. And these tingly movie moments just kept on coming, as we strolled around the 44 hobbit houses that are strung around the hillsides, fizzing with excitement being photographed outside Bag End or sitting on the see-saw beneath The Party Tree, where Bilbo held his eleventy-first birthday. I was fully submerged in the fantasy-meets-reality world of Middle Earth. It’s little wonder that 450,000 visitors toured the movie set, last year alone. Winding our way around the hills, the panoramic views reach right across the lake to the stone bridge, the watermill and the Green Dragon Inn, which looked like a life-sized thatched cottage from my grandmother’s

Lilliput Lane collection. Sir Peter Jackson’s art director, Brian Massey, ensured everything down to the mugs maintained complete faith with how The Green Dragon Inn was depicted onscreen. A triumph of expert craftsmanship, it’s a charmingly snug and toasty timbered environment, and the crackling open fire was an extra thrill to warm the cockles, on a chilly April day. All the brews are exclusively created by Good George Brewing, in Frankton. Maybe it was the ale, but as I re-boarded the bus to depart, I felt like I was stepping out of a movie. It really doesn’t matter whether you’re a film fanatic or not. The movie set sits on 4.8ha of land and my charming guide,

Kate, shared a constant flow of fascinating bite-sized nuggets about Hobbiton. An over-riding theme is the meticulous attention to detail that Jackson demanded. All of the farm’s livestock had to be removed when shooting took place, because they didn’t look English enough. Suffolk sheep, notable for their black faces and legs, were hauled up from the South Island during shooting. Real apple and pear trees were stripped of their and replaced with plastic leaves and plums, even though they only featured for three seconds in the movie. A fake oak tree, created from silicon, was dressed with 200,000 fake leaves. Jackson didn’t like the colour of the leaves, so they

were all re-painted by hand, even though the tree was only in shot for 10 seconds. Kate also revealed that moss and lichen was liberally deployed to give the movie-set’s fences a weathered, old look. They created fake moss and lichen by blending woodchips, yoghurt and paint together. As they were during filming, the vegetable patches are still filled with super-sized plants so as the hobbits would look smaller. Technically, it is still an “active set,” and a team from Weta visit every six months to give it a touch up. The hanging clothes were deliberately made to hang on the line for up to two years, before being replaced. A full-time gardening team work daily on maintaining the picturesque appearance of the trees, flowers and lawn.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY Experience plus The degree that offers so degree gets Ara many career opportunities graduate key role at Kraft Heinz Ara Institute of Canterbury graduate Danielle Street has secured her dream job at Kraft Heinz Company, just a year after graduating with a Bachelor of Applied Management in Sales and Marketing. Danielle thought it would take her years to become a Territory Manager, but she believes her unique experience and degree made her stand out above the rest. “A degree is the thing that puts you on top. It shows you’ve got the latest knowledge and with that you’ll be able to adapt quickly to changes and new challenges,” she says. Working with well-known global brands like Wattie’s has always been the goal for Danielle. She knew she needed relevant experience to get a foot in the door and she got started by setting up her own snow cone business while still at high school. “Not only did this give me experience on my CV that not many people my age have, it also helped me understand what I wanted to study.” The range of subjects covered by the Ara Bachelor of Applied Management was a drawcard for Danielle. She was able to pursue her passion for marketing and event management, plus explore essential foundation subjects like economics. She says that everything she’s learned has been hugely relevant in her new role. “My marketing knowledge is something I use everyday – particularly price, product,

promotion and placement – and my understanding of economics means I can use big-picture information like graphs to inform what I do.” A key part of Danielle’s degree was a a sixmonth internship, which she undertook at Frucor to gain an insight into the world of fast-moving consumer goods. She says this gave her a distinct advantage when applying for her new role in the industry. Danielle also believes that her extracurricular experience on the Student Events Team at Ara helped her prepare for her role, by exposing her to working on projects with different teams and people from different backgrounds. “Being a Territory Manager is mostly about relationship building. I need to be able to manage lots of different relationships.” Her advice to other young people wanting to enter the industry is to take advantage of any practical opportunities to get experience and to get a relevant degree.

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Physical Activity and Health Promotion offers students the chance to change lives. Recent graduate Abby Wilson is working as a physical health advisor for Sport Canterbury, supporting patients with a range of conditions to become more active to benefit their health and wellbeing. She says that connecting with people in the community and seeing them create change in their lives is very fulfilling. “It’s great when you meet people who want to change and you know that you have the ability to help them transform their approach to being active. Seeing them become independently active and continue with a healthier lifestyle is amazing.” During her degree, Abby completed placements with Falls Prevention and the Canterbury District Health Board. She says that the opportunity to work in the local community and build networks was invaluable. “The placements are the best part of the degree. You spend about 130 hours working in the second and third years and you definitely feel ready to go out and get a job when you finish. I use the majority of what I learned in my degree every single day.” In their first year,

students explore foundation topics and then focus on the physical activity and health promotion specialisation for the remainder of their study. This prepares graduates to enter a wide range of roles in the sports, health and wellness sectors. Abby says that the degree has given her options. She’s already experienced the diversity the industry has to offer, including working in Abu Dhabi immediately after graduating. “The degree offers so many career opportunities, which means you get to go out and do different things throughout your career.” The Bachelor of Applied Science (Physical Activity and Health Promotion) is a three year, full time programme. Part time options are also available.

Simplicity of music makes show „„ By Gabrielle Stuart SO MANY performances these days seem to be getting bigger, flashier, more colourful, more dramatic, more incredible. If that’s what your after, The Showbiz Evening of Rodgers and Hammerstein Classics would not be for you. Yet there is something magical about going back to the simplicity of music. And this was music beautifully presented and flawlessly performed, with a full orchestra, incredible soloists and a chorus of 120 voices. It was an old fashioned style performance – the full orchestra dominated the stage, conductor front and centre in immaculately shined shoes. The chorus stood in rows, 120 white faces, while the soloists came and went in suit jackets and fairytale gowns. The soloists were incredible, each bringing strong voices and powerful performances. When surrounded by a chorus of 120 other voices, stealing the stage cannot be easy – but soloist Greta CaseySoley managed it, bringing huge energy and fun to June

is Bustin’ Out All Over from Carousel. The chorus pieces, I Whistle a Happy Tune from The King and I and My Favourite Things from The Sound of Music, got so many heads nodding and toes tapping in the audience it added an extra layer of percussion. Conductor and musical director Richard Marrett brought incredible energy to the stage throughout. Each

piece flowed together so well it was easy to get lost in the music, and the show seemed over far too soon. Even after the curtain fell and the audience spilled onto the street, the excitement was infectious. People lingered, heading down New Regent St for coffee or gelato, or gathered in laughing, chattering groups on the footpath. One tall young orchestra

member stood leaning on his instrument case on the street, listening solemnly as two beaming white-haired women exclaimed over how much they loved the show. One couldn’t contain herself and bounced up and down on the spot joyfully. And that said it all – more than 70 years after some of these pieces first hit the stage, they have lost none of their magic.

MX-5 an example of advanced engineering „„ By Ross Kiddie “SAVE UP your money,’’ was the advice from Masaya Kodama, CX-5 project manager, Mazda Motor Corporation, Japan. I had asked Mr Kodama if a new Mazda RX was likely given the concept drawings of a new sports car have been on show. Mr Kodama said rotary engine development was ongoing, and from those comments I would say a new RX is inevitable. I’ve long considered Mazda’s development of its rotary engine to be one of the company’s finest engineering achievements. Although I’ve never had the good fortune to own a rotary, my son has a RX7 turbo and occasionally I get to experience the feel and performance of that amazing sport coupe. As history has served to prove, Mazda has advanced engineering techniques right through its passenger vehicle line-up, and just recently one of its other sport models, the MX-5, was launched in a new variation – that with a folding convertible roof – made of metal. Of course, the soft-top MX-5, is still available in four variants, and the concept of a folding metal roof isn’t new; targa tops, as they have become commonly known, have been around for many decades. However, the point I’m making is that the mechanism which transforms this popular sports car is another example of Mazda’s engineering prowess. The 13sec electric operation is just sheer genius, it can also be open and closed at speeds of up to 10km/h and, for interest’s sake, boot space remains the same for all models. The concept for which we like MX-5 hasn’t been compromised, it is still the cheeky, two-seater which thrills with its chassis balance and associated handling prowess. Whereas the soft-top is available in both 1.5-litre and 2-litre variants, the hard-top RF (retractable fastback) is a 2-litre car only, but there’s also a choice of specification and gearbox. The GSX sits at $48,495, a Limited variant adds $3000 and $4500 (auto), while the test car was a special launch edition model with automatic

transmission, it tops the range at $54,995. Before you jump to the conclusion that the hardtop needs the 2-litre engine because of the metal structure’s increase in weight, bear in mind that that adds just 47kg into the car and performance is far from compromised. The acceleration times between the two models are much the same – 0-100km/h in 6.6sec and 7.2sec respectively. • Price – Mazda MX-5 RFS, $54,995 • Dimensions – Length, 3915mm; width, 1735mm; height, 1235mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, rearwheel-drive, 1998cc, 118kW, 200Nm, sixspeed manual • Performance – 0-100km/h, 7.4sec • Fuel usage – 7l/100km

Even though the 1998cc, twin-camshaft unit is built to Mazda’s SkyActive efficiency and emissionfriendly parameters, it is still a high performing engine with its 118kW and 200Nm ratings. It works freely through the six-speed automatic thanks to low early gearing and a broad top end gear to promote highway economy. Mazda claims a sevenlitre per 100km (40mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average, which sat well with the 8l/100km (35mpg) figure showing on the test car’s trip computer when I took it back to the dealership. I’ve often been a bit critical of the MX-5 and the sound that is generated within the cockpit, history has it that it has always been a bit noisy. I guess performance car buyers like that and they may be disappointed in the hardtop as it is far quieter and

far more to my liking; there is an angry engine sound when it’s working hard, but under normal conditions the hard-top promotes a quiet in-cabin environment and I relate to that. Not only is the engine a delight in terms of flexibility and honesty, the MX-5’s greatest virtue is that of its feel-good factor. The suspension and chassis engineering is a marvel. Of course, drive is sent to the rear wheels and that promotes a pure handling sensation, add in the fully involving feel from the steering wheel and the compliance within the spring and damper rates and you have a true sports car, one which delivers the fun factor along with the ability to conquer the most challenging of corners. Take into account, too, that the tyres aren’t huge (205/45 x 17in), there isn’t a lot of load put on them, and with a height of just 1235mm there is little gravitational force working against the convertible in a quick corner, it handles flat and controlled. There’s some flexibility built into the traction control system, you can make it a little tail-happy before the electronic devices counteract oversteer, but that doesn’t interrupt the fun. The MX-5 in this form has lost none of its playful character and that is why it has been such a popular car, it has been built with character in mind and it doesn’t disappoint. For someone whose old joints don’t work quite as well as they once did, I didn’t find entry and exit into the test car onerous, in fact I was finding excuses to get in the vehicle and go for a drive. There’s a raft of amazing product coming out of the Mazda factories these days, it’s no surprise then that the MX-5 in this form is so desirable. I’m so envious of those who get to own one.

Lawson, Clinton changes tack: California-bound Bruce take out bowls awards „„ By Gordon Findlater

„„ By Gordon Findlater GARY LAWSON and Tayla Bruce took out Bowls Canterbury’s top awards on Saturday night. Lawson was name sportsman of the year, and Bruce sportswoman of the year. There have been many highlights for Lawson over the past 12 months, including winning the men’s pairs at the Bowls New Zealand Gary Lawson national championships in New Plymouth in January. The victory was Lawson’s 11th national title, making him the most successful Kiwi bowlers of all time. Tayla Bruce “To win my 11th New Zealand title was something I’ve been trying to do for a while,” he said. Lawson, who plays for the Sumner club, then went on to win the national inter-centre title with the Canterbury men’s team, which he described as the icing on the cake. The Canterbury men’s intercentre team won the team of the year award. “The spirit the boys had was the winner there. The seven other guys that I played with made it a thrill to be part of the Canterbury team,” said Lawson. Canterbury men’s team coach Darryl Hawker praised Lawson.  “He was a great team member and mentor to not only the senior men’s teams this year, but also to the development men’s and women’s teams,” said Hawker. Lawson was part of the Sumner team which won the national sevens title. Bruce from the Burnside club is currently competing at the Broadbeach Bowls Club, Gold Coast, with the New Zealand squad. Alex Wilkinson, 15, also of Burnside, won the most improved and most consistent trophies at the Bowls Canterbury awards. •A full list of award winners can be found at www. bowlscanterbury.co.nz/

QUINN CLINTON will follow in the footsteps of two of Australasia’s best guards when he joins St Mary’s College of California next year. Australian NBA champions Matthew Dellavedova and Patty Mills both played college basketball at SMC. The college has now had at least one Australian in their team each year since 2001. The Australian contingent haven’t been there to make up the numbers. Dellavedova is SMC’s all-time leader in scoring, assists, games played, free throw percentage, and three-point shots made. Clinton, who is seen as one of the best young shooters and passers to ever come out of New Zealand, will soon add some Kiwi flavour to the team. “I think there’s currently about half a dozen Aussies there. They’ve had guys that play quite a similar game to me who have had a lot of success at college and have gone on to bigger things. That’s something that stood out to me” said Clinton. Clinton is currently taking a gap year after finishing his final year at Christchurch Boys’ High School. He will continue to work

on his game full-time with former Tall Blacks and Canterbury Rams coach Mark Dickel. If the hard work pays off, there’s every chance SMC’s

record books could see a Kiwi out-do the Aussies. The last few months have been a roller-coaster for the talented 18-year-old guard. In January,

he committed to the University of New Mexico and had planned on joining the team this year until their now former coach Craig Neal was fired in March. University of New Mexico’s new coach Paul Weir talked with Clinton. However, he envisioned bringing a new style of play to the team that wouldn’t complement Clinton’s attributes. “They want to go with a really fast tempo and play full court press on defence,” said Clinton. Finding a new scholarship wasn’t an issue – he is seen as one of the top college prospects from Australasia. In December, he captained the Junior Tall Blacks to the Oceania under-18 title where he drained two three-pointers in the final 90 seconds to guide his side to a 57-51 win over Australia in the final. Last month, he met with SMC coach Randy Bennett while on an official visit to the college. “I really liked it there. They play a really structured game and look to create open shots which will suit my game,” said Clinton. Before joining SMC, Clinton will play for the Junior Tall Blacks at the FIBA under-19 World Cup in Egypt next month.

Young driver hopes to break rally drought „„ By Gordon Findlater ARI PETTIGREW is hoping to turn his luck around at this weekend’s Canterbury Rally after a series of misfortunes in Otago and Whangarei. Pettigrew, 18, has failed to finish in the opening two rounds of the New Zealand Rally Championship but is hopeful of beginning his push in the twowheel-drive championship at home this weekend. “It hasn’t been the start to the first national championship we would have liked. We’re hopeful of a good result this weekend and knowing parts of the roads in the forest will certainly help,” said Pettigrew. At the opening round of the championship in Otago, he showed the kind of pace that has seen him earn a reputation as New Zealand’s next big thing in the sport. Over two of the stages, Pettigrew and co-driver David Calder went faster than the current NZRC 2WD record in their Ford Fiesta, and won their class on three stages before retiring with a blown engine on stage four. He didn’t have better luck in the second round of the championship in Whangarei, running into power steering issues. Pettigrew broke onto the scene last year when he finished fourth overall in just his second ever event at the Catlins Coast

YOUNG GUN: Ari Pettigrew has shown plenty of pace in his new Ford Fiesta but is yet to finish a NZRC round this year.

Rally. Driving a rear-wheeldrive BMW 318Ti, he put the skills learnt through years of grass karting to use in snowy conditions. This year, he has made the switch to not only front-wheeldrive but also left-hand-drive. The move comes with an eye towards the future. Hayden Paddon had to make the same adjustment to left-hand-drive before making it into the World

Rally Championship. “It hasn’t been as difficult as I thought it was going to be. We’ve known the shift to driving on the left side would have to come at some stage so we thought it was best to do it sooner rather than later,” said Pettigrew. There is also a strong local hope in the open championship. Rangiora’s Matt Summerfield is currently second in the NZRC

after a win in Whangarei. He will be looking to end a string of bad luck at the Canterbury Rally – he has not finished the event in the last three years. The rally has 78 entries and begins with a ceremony at Lone Star on Manchester St on Saturday night. The rally comprises of 10 special stages raced over 195km around Ashley Forest on Sunday.

The mystery of Tui Lolohea’s exit from the Warriors „„ By Michael Burgess

THE REASONS behind Tui Lolohea’s fall from grace at the Warriors this season will remain a mystery. Lolohea, who was granted a release from the club last week, began this year as one of the club’s first choice wings. He started the first two matches on the flank, then had games at fullback and fiveeighth, deputising for Roger

Tuivasa-Sheck and Kieran Foran. At that point he slid down the pecking order, behind Blake Ayshford and rookie Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad among the outside backs. However, when asked by the NZ Herald, Warriors coach Stephen Kearney wouldn’t be drawn on the specifics of Lolohea’s demise. “It’s a matter for myself and Tui. What I will say is that we gave him the opportunity. I saw

him as a specialist right winger, he had that opportunity and as sometimes things happen, it didn’t quite work out for him. The opportunity for him now is with the Tigers and, personally I do wish him all the best,” said Kearney. However, Kearney admitted the two had disagreed over Lolohea’s best position and where his future lay. “I saw him as a specialist winger to begin with and Tui

Carpet piCk of the week

saw himself more as a half or fullback,” said Kearney. “The last thing I want to do is stop a young man from trying to achieve his potential, so I thought it was fair to both parties to let him go and chase the position he wants to play.” Lolohea will make his Tigers debut on Saturday against St George. Centre Solomone Kata returns for the Warriors round 13

clash with the Eels in Sydney tomorrow night after missing the last two games with a calf injury. Kata has had a mixed season so far – with only one try from nine games – but deserves another opportunity given his performances over the past two years. Kata’s inclusion results in David Fusitu’a moving back to the right wing, replacing NicollKlokstad.

Crusaders v Highlanders a grudge match to look forward to „„ By Patrick McKendry RUGBY FANS rejoice – Saturday’s first British and Irish Lions match of their tour has necessitated the scheduling of two rare afternoon Super Rugby matches for three Kiwi sides. And the first, the Crusaders v the Highlanders, could be a classic. The New Zealand Provincial Barbarians play the Lions in Whangarei at 7.35pm, a significant match in itself, and one with

a perfect entree. The Crusaders meet the Highlanders at AMI Stadium at 2.35pm, while the Chiefs host the Waratahs in Hamilton at 5.05pm. The New Zealand derby will probably attract the most attention, according to the NZ Herald, given the Crusaders have won all of their 13 matches this season, while the Highlanders are on a nine-match streak. The Crusaders, with two round-robin matches remaining

Talk to us if you are serious about selling your “As is Where is” home.

Buying a property at auction If you’re keen on a property that’s going to auction, preparation is everything. A successful bid means you are immediately committed to buy the property; you cannot seek legal advice, arrange finance or even get the property valued or inspected when the auction is over. That means you need to do all your due diligence in advance of auction day. Before the auction (usually after you’ve viewed the property), the real estate agent working for the seller should provide you with a copy of the terms and Contract of Sale, which sets out what chattels will be included with the property. This document will also tell you the amount of the deposit to be paid by the successful bidder, and when the balance of the payment must be made. These documents should be checked by your lawyer. You should consider having the property checked (preferably by a qualified inspector who has professional indemnity insurance and carries out their work in accordance with the New Zealand Property Inspection Standards and obtain an up-to-date Land Information Memorandum (LIM) from the local council. It’s a good idea to get a valuation of the property, especially as you are likely to require one if you need a loan. Some websites provide free estimated market values that may be useful. There’s a lot to take in at an auction and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. If you can, go along to one as an observer to see how the process works before you actually want to buy. Remember that the auctioneer is working for the seller and they want to get the highest price possible for the property. At an auction, the auctioneer will read the terms and conditions of the sale aloud and announce if a reserve price has been set. They must also state whether the seller has reserved the right to bid during the auction. This is called ‘vendor bidding’ and it is only allowed under strict circumstances, such as when the property being auctioned has a reserve price; when the

reserve price has not yet been met; and the auctioneer has made it clear that the bid being made is a vendor bid. They must do this by saying, ‘this is a vendor bid’ rather than using any jargon. Auctioneers sometimes use vendor bids as a way to start off the bidding, or to move the bidding towards the reserve price. Vendor bids can be made by the auctioneer, or another person working on behalf of the seller, such as a real estate agent. An auctioneer can also use a pre-auction offer to start the bidding. The auction continues until there is only one bidder left. At that stage, if the reserve price is reached or beaten, the highest bidder will be the successful buyer. If the reserve price isn’t reached, the seller can tell the auctioneer to stop the auction without selling the property. If the auction is stopped without a sale, the highest bidder may have the opportunity to negotiate with the seller (via their agent) after the auction. If this happens, the terms and conditions of the auction no longer apply and you can negotiate new ones. For independent advice on buying property, check out www. buyingahome.reaa.govt.nz.

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT ACT 1991 Applicant:

Lyttelton Port Company Limited

Address for service:

C/- Jared Pettersson, Lyttelton Port Company Limited, Private bag 501, Lyttelton 8841; or email: Jared.Pettersson@lpc.co.nz

Environment Canterbury has received an application from Lyttelton Port Company (LPC) for resource consents in respect of its proposed Te Awaparahi Bay Reclamation Project (Project). The Project involves the proposed construction of a reclamation and a piled wharf totalling approximately 24 hectares in size. The Project is to be undertaken in Te Awaparahi Bay, Lyttelton Harbour/Whakaraupō. LPC proposes to undertake the Project in two stages: • Stage 1 will involve the construction of approximately 5 hectares of reclamation via end tipping; and • Stage 2 will involve the construction of approximately 16 hectares of reclamation, by: – creating a perimeter bund around the remaining area to be reclaimed; and – the bulk filling of the area behind the bund. A piled wharf will be constructed in stages along the southern edge of the proposed reclamation footprint. Part of Cashin Quay breakwater will also be removed, during either Stage 1 or Stage 2 of the reclamation construction. The applicant has applied for the following resource consents in relation to the proposed Project: 1. CRC175507 – Coastal permit to reclaim seabed and construct a wharf, and associated disturbance of the seabed, and deposition onto or into the seabed in the Coastal Marine Area. 2. CRC176030 – Coastal permit to discharge contaminants (seabed material and water) into water in the Coastal Marine Area associated with construction of the reclamation and wharf described in CRC175507. 3. CRC175508 – Coastal permit to discharge any water or any contaminants into water or into or onto land, and associated deposition in the Coastal Marine Area. 4. CRC175509 – Coastal permit to discharge stormwater (water and contaminants) into water, or onto or into land, and associated deposition in the Coastal Marine Area. 5. CRC175510 – Discharge permit and a coastal permit to discharge dust into air from the site. A diagram outlining the location of the Project, the site boundary and details of its approximate staging is included as Figure 1.

CHRISTCHURCH Rally & March to stop the sale of Christchurch state houses Speakers include: Naenae Higgs

State House Tenant

at

500M from Westfield

Bishop Victoria Mathews Anglican Church Megan Woods Labour MP Eugenie Sage Green MP Paul Watson First Union

Join the fightback


DEFEND and PROTECT STATE HOUSING

Christchurch will not stand idly by while National asset strips the city of state houses. Since the 1930s Christchurch families have been helped by state houses built by our parents, grandparents. But this year, in the middle of a housing crisis, the National government is trying to sell 2,500 of our state houses. They say state house tenants can be looked after by social housing providers. However only the government has the resources and capacity to build the huge number of homes desperately needed by low-income families. If they have their way our children and grandchildren who need state housing in the future won’t be able to get it. More people and families will be left to live in cars, under bridges or doubled up in small homes.

Come on

Christchurch! Let’s join together and stop this social vandalism!
