War memorial protection panels cop criticism „„ By Sarla Donovan PANELS DESIGNED to protect New Brighton’s iconic war memorial from graffiti have been criticised by locals as “horribly ugly.” However, the New Brighton RSA says they are needed to safeguard the monument for future generations. The $25,000 panels were given the okay by the RSA and installed by the city council just over a week ago. RSA executive manager Garry House said people needed to understand that the clear panels have a film over top of them, which can be replaced if they are defaced, keeping the monuments clean. They could also be easily removed for ceremonial purposes such as Anzac Day. “It’s not a perfect solution but it’s a lot better than having graffiti all over the cenotaph, which does lasting damage to the sandstone.” He said he wanted to give the panels a chance and “if it turns into a disaster” then they’d need to look at other options. New Brighton Project coordinator Martha Baxendell said they reinforced the idea that New Brighton was not a safe or good place to be and detracted from the area.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the panels around the memorial are a good idea? Are there better alternatives? Email sarla.

“They are just horribly ugly. We did a photo shoot with Rockabilly Show and Shine and wanted to do an Anzac shoot but we had to relocate to the Bur-

wood War Memorial.” She said the memorial had only been tagged once in the last two years and there wasn’t really a need for it to be protected.

Coastal-Burwood Community Board member Tim Sintes said he didn’t know how else they could protect the memorial “apart from a barbed wire fence.”

Coastal Ward city councillor David East said the panels weren’t ideal but he was happy to trial them. “Aesthetically it doesn’t look that great.” He said the decision was pretty much set in stone by the time it came to the board. •Turn to page 4

Tuesday June 6 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

OPINION WILL no doubt be polarised on the panels put in to protect the Brighton war memorial from that scourge of neighbourhoods – taggers. The panels are designed to stop taggers, and hopefully that happens. The Pegasus Post has canvassed Brighton people for their views (see page 1) and not surprising most are beating the same drum: Necessary but ugly. “Horribly ugly” in some cases. Brighton RSA boss Garry House thinks the panels are okay, but understandably the main concern is to get the memorial protected. At the end of the day, stopping the taggers is the key. Easier said than done. Another problem that is not easy to solve is Bromley’s midges (see page 3). City council people are meeting with residents tomorrow. Good luck. – Barry Clarke

News Bid to solve midge problem „„ By Sarla Donovan MIDGE-PLAGUED Bromley residents will meet with staff from the nearby wastewater treatment plant, the city council and the Coastal-Burwood Community Board tomorrow in hopes of working out a solution to a problem they say is getting worse every year. Board chairwoman Kim Money (left) said the meeting would allow affected residents the chance to air their feelings. “We want the residents to feel comfortable to say what they want to say to staff. All of us want to sit down and have a really open and good discussion.” In spite of an $800,000 spend over the past two years, locals say their properties are inundated with swarms of the non-biting insects over summer, forcing them indoors and making life a misery. They say the current methods of control aren’t working, and want the city council to look at alternatives.

In Brief PIER REPAIRS ON TRACK Repairs to New Brighton Pier are on track to be finished by February next year. The first column is finished and work is under way on the second, third and fourth columns. Crack repairs are also taking place on the access ramp. The pier will continue to be open to the public while the earthquake repairs take place. FLYING FOX DECISION Prestons North sub-division residents will get a say on whether a flying fox in the Muka Park playground should be reinstated or removed permanently. Complaints led to the flying fox being removed last year for breaching city plan noise standards. Dozens of phone calls and letters protesting the removal followed, leading the city council to investigate options for its return.

INUNDATED: Bromley residents tired of midges swarming their properties will attend a meeting in New Brighton tomorrow to look at new ways of solving the problem.

Shortland St resident Janet Profit said she and others were “over it,” and wanted the problem sorted before next summer. “We can’t have another year of it. Ms Money said she wanted to get all the relevant parties

News Retired teacher gets Queen’s honour Memorial „„ By Sarla Donovan RETIRED TEACHER Alan Parris has been made a Member of the Order of New Zealand for services to maths education. Mr Parris, who lives in Wainoni, taught maths at Linwood College for more than 40 years and was head of department for more than a decade. “I’m honoured. It’s great that maths has been recognised in this way.” He was one of three people in the city’s east named in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List. Kerry Bensemann, also of Wainoni, was made a Member of the Order of New Zealand for services to the community. In 2001, Mr Bensemann established the 0800 Hungry Ministries Trust, a charitable organisation providing food bank services in the Canterbury region. The trust sources surplus food from businesses and distributes packages to the poor and needy. Also honoured for services to the community was Dick Johns, of Waitikiri, who has volunteered for nearly 60 years as a Boys’ Brigade leader. He was

a volunteer at the police kiosk in Cathedral Square and since early 2016 has been a weekly volunteer at Burwood Hospital to assist staff and patients. Mr Parris said although he

is now officially retired, he still keeps “busy as hell,” helping set tests and competitions in Australia and New Zealand. Mr Parris represented New Zealand internationally as the

director of the New Zealand Mathematics Olympiad residential camps for more than 30 years, and has written and moderated for the Australian Mathematics Competition for more than 24 years. Within Canterbury, he has contributed to the Cantamath regional competition, and was founder in 1995 of the Literacy and Numeracy Empowerment Project. He produced and co-ordinated the online National Mathematics Week programme for more than 15 years and served on the National Association of Mathematics Teachers for more than 25 years. Mr Parris and his wife have just finished building a new house on their Cuffs Rd property and are busy subdividing and building two more houses on their section. “We’re busy fighting the council over permits, plans, consents and so on.” As president of both the Canterbury and New Zealand Snooker and Billiards Association, and a vintage car enthusiast, he’s finding plenty to keep him busy.

panels cop criticism

•From page 1 Binn Inn New Brighton owner Nikki Griffin thought the panels were “hideous.” She said there must be a better way to protect the memorial than the “fish bowl they’ve come up with.” Blair Hughes, owner of Paper Plus New Brighton, said he could understand why they’d been put up but didn’t like the look of them. “Aesthetically, it doesn’t work. I would have thought there’d be a better option.” Burwood Ward city councillor Glenn Livingstone said he hadn’t seen the memorial since the panels had been installed. Similar panels around the Woolston Borough Monument were covered in graffiti less than three weeks after they were installed.

Call for council to own Southshore land „„ By Sarla Donovan LOCAL CITY councillor David East wants to see ownership of red-zoned Southshore land return to the city. Clearance of 150 red zone properties bordering Southshore estuary has left the area open to erosion and flooding from storms and high tide. Coastal-ward city councillor David East told the Pegasus Post it was “untenable” to ask residents David East to wait another 18 months for Regenerate Christchurch to come up with a plan when there was no obligation for anybody to implement it. “The Government could just sit on it for years and years. There’s no guarantee they will fix it.” He thinks the quicker option is for the city council to take ownership of the land and assess the feasibility of a plan commissioned by the Southshore Residents Association. The plan, prepared pro-bono by coastal engineering firm OCEL Consultants, proposes constructing a berm to protect the area from inundation on the

estuary side. The berm would form an elevated walk/cycle way along the Estuary shoreline, with beaches at some points providing access for kayaks and paddle boards at high tide. The estimated cost was $7.5 million, excluding a paved walkway, landscaping or beach features.

Cr East said Government was at a stage where further funding for projects in Christchurch would meet with opposition from other parts of the country. He said it didn’t seem like an “insurmountable” problem to get that sum into the city council’s budget next year. “People down there are looking for some action,” Cr East said.

All red zone land is currently in Crown ownership and Regenerate Christchurch is leading community consultation on the red zone but Cr East said because the SSRA had already commissioned a detailed plan, it was a “slap in the face” for residents to be told they had to wait for the consultation process to finish in July next year.

Christchurch Central MP and Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner said she and Mayor Lianne Dalziel met with the regenerate board earlier this month to discuss planning for Southshore and South New Brighton. “I understand Regenerate Christchurch presented to the Southshore Residents’ Association two weeks ago on the intended approach, and emphasised the need for pace and certainty.” “All relevant information will be considered in the planning process, and the community will have the opportunity to provide input.” Cr East said the Government should sit down with the city council and assess the feasibility of the OCEL plan, rather than inflict further consultation on a community that was “sick to death” of it, It was “inevitable” that all red zone land in Christchurch would return to council ownership, he said. “It’s not a matter of if, but when.” SSRA chairman Bill Simpson said residents in the area had an immediate problem which needed to be fixed. “We don’t care how it’s done.”

What have you been up to today? My daughter needed me to babysit so I thought I’ll have her for a couple of hours and do some emails at the same time. Well, a 10-month-old and emails didn’t quite work! Then I popped over to see my mum, she’s in a rest home and I’ve had a lot of issues with her over the years especially in the six months since I’ve been in this job unfortunately. She’s had strokes, been in and out of hospital, that sort of stuff happening. After that, I had a staff meeting and now I’m seeing you. Do you have just the one grandchild? I’ve got two daughters, 30 and 27. One has a baby girl who I was looking after this morning and the other has a boy who is two-and-ahalf, and another little girl, she’s eight months. They’re all living in North Beach. We’re here at Salt on the Pier – is this a favourite cafe? There’s a few here. I think

because I live in North Beach, my favourite would be the Coffee Shed. A friend of mine’s daughter started that up 18 months ago and it’s a wee community hub she’s created. We all swarm down there like bees, and it’s not just the people you get to know, it’s the dogs as well. A lot of mums go there with their babies and I’ve recently been able to talk the kite man, Jim, into flying his kites down at North Beach so he does that every now and again too. Switch Espresso is good too, one of my favourites. It was a bit grey and chilly earlier on. Are you one of these people who get excited about winter? I used to when I skied, before children, but now, winter’s different. It’s a cosy time, a time to take stock, do a bit of spring cleaning or organising. But I love being outdoors so any sunny day it’s out on the beach, that’s why I live there. Anyway, we always get four seasons in one day.

with empathy and positivity A bit like Dunedin. I was actually born there, in 1960. My parents emigrated from England with my sister, who’s seven years older than me. They first went to Dunedin, then after about six months we shifted to Sumner. I grew up there, went to Sumner School. Then I met my husband, (who I’m separated from) when I was 16 and he lived in North Beach. So I’ve been associated with this area since then. We met at a church camp; he was jumping on a trampoline and my best friend broke her leg so I thought he might like to go and visit her in hospital, that’s how it started. Plus, he was a surfer, which appealed. Do you surf yourself? I’ve got a surfboard and a wetsuit but all the youth around the place, they all use it. Anybody that wants to use my board uses it. My daughter and I designed the pattern, it’s a Barron board. But no, I’m a beach whale. We’ve been a surfing family though, in the surfing community for years and my daughter surfs, my son-in-laws surf and I love that lifestyle, being on the beach, going up and finding the surf in Kaikoura. Do you a have a bolt-hole, somewhere you escape to for

ELECTION TIME: Kim Money out and about on the campaign trail last year.

weekends/holidays? When I was married, we used to go to Bali every year. That was somewhere that we found which worked for both of us. The surf was always fantastic, the weather

was always fine, the shopping and food was cheap, you didn’t have to cook or clean so we’d go for 2-3 weeks every year. Otherwise, in New Zealand, Dunedin and Kaikoura were our favourite

spots, again, because of the surf. I do love the beach, otherwise I feel claustrophobic. Where I grew up in Sumner, our house was on The Esplanade, right opposite Cave Rock. I heard the house we had just sold after about 30 years for $1.4 million. And apparently they’re going to pull it down. I haven’t lived there for a long time of course, but I was there 21 years. How are you enjoying your job as chairwoman? It’s a real privilege. It was really exciting when I first heard I got in because as I said my mother was really sick and I found it difficult to campaign. I wanted to door knock a lot but mum was out at Oxford Hospital for respite and she was there for virtually the entire campaign. I was travelling out there a lot and found it difficult to run the campaign I wanted so I didn’t know how it would end up going. I did the best I could so when I got in it was really exciting and then that turned into, ‘oh my goodness, I’m now chair.’ Is that something you were pushed into? Not at all. I said I’d consider being chair (thinking it was parttime – it’s not). It turned out I had the backing of the entire

board, it was unanimous and that in itself was a privilege, to think that these members who’d been there six to nine years were happy for me as a new person to come and not just be part of the team, but lead the team. It was a double privilege really. I take it very seriously and I love the board, all of them. We all respect each other. We’ve recently just done a ‘StrengthsFinder’ course. They really enjoyed that and it was so useful in finding out what we bring to the board and how we can use that and it just brings an understanding of how we’re made up. For example, empathy and positivity are two really strong traits of mine. I’ve noticed you’re quite efficient at meetings, is that something you’re conscious of? It’s just being respectful of people who have come to present and also (city council) staff that are there. We have to get on with the job and be mindful that people who are presenting have taken time out of their day. I’ve chaired groups at other organisations and I do like to start on time and try and stick to the rules. But then, we’re community so there needs to be discretion and ability to go with the flow sometimes.

Eastern schools will be well represented at the regional finals, with Shirley Boys’ High School groups Cipher, Judah And The Lazers and 2016 Canterbury Region winners FUZHUN also making the cut.

They were among 70 bands who battled it out for 12 spots in the regional finals. Lead vocalist, Evile Jireh Sisiso Laloata, thinks their stage presence and ability to get the crowd engaged contributed to their success. “There was not much space but we actually figured out, like, how to use the whole space and be creative and add in moves to it. There was also a specific part in our song where we tell the crowd to clap but then they all started clapping to the beat and we were like: ‘Oh yes, this is what we wanted’.” The group, coached by Vai Punavai, will now compete in the regionals at The Foundry on June 23 where they’ll be hunting

Migraine relief Your headache or migraine may literally be a pain in the neck

It’s not very well known that almost 13 percent of people – including childrensuffer from headaches and migraines. It is the 3rd most prevalent illness in the world and causes 91 percent of the people it affects to miss work or reduce their functional capacity. In the past 10 years, the understanding of what causes headaches and migraines has significantly changed. The research now shows that the sensitisation of the brain stem in

your neck is what causes this pain; and the specially trained physiotherapists at Muscle People are well versed in how to treat it. Krissy Winter, a patient of Muscle People, had this to say about her experience: “My migraines were debilitating and they’d often come without warning. Sometimes once a week, but generally about once a month. I’d moved up from Dunedin where I’d managed them

with my Osteopath, yoga and Pilates. In Christchurch I was so reluctant to let anyone near my neck. I read the article and I must admit I wasn’t convinced and I went to the first appointment with a page of all the concerns I had. The first time I met Laurie I remember walking out and feeling more in control. After about four treatments with Laurie and perfecting the technique she taught me I truly began to reap the benefits. Now I’m fantastic. If I feel a migraine coming on I now have the control to manage it myself, even stopping them from taking over, without needing someone to drive me in to the osteopath or the hospital for an injection to relieve the pain. With the technique Laurie taught me I’m armed and dangerous!” Laurie, Clare and Naomi were trained in Australia in the award winning and ground breaking Watson Approach to dealing with headaches and migraines. This proven method examines and treats the movements of the first three segments of the neck, which when sensitised cause headaches and migraines. “In our clinics we see people from as far away as Invercargill who come to us specially to seek treatment” says Laurie Moore, Director of Muscle People Physiotherapy. She says “The symposium in Australia we went to just recently reaffirmed the effectiveness of what we

How’s your sleep? Sleep is as important to the human body as food and water, but most of us don’t get enough quality sleep. Insufficient sleep, or disruptions to the sleep-wake cycle, may cause you to feel stressed, moody, unhappy, depressed, frustrated, fatigued, as well as cause poor concentration, memory, weight gain, skin conditions and even be a factor in faster aging and degenerative diseases. Melatonin is your sleep hormone. It is secreted by your brain’s pineal gland at the day’s end to help you relax and prepare for sleep. As you drift into sleep more melatonin is released to put you into a deep restorative sleep. Unfortunately many of us do not produce enough melatonin to achieve a quality sleep, and to sleep continuously through until morning. If you have trouble going to sleep, and/or wake often throughout the night you could be low in melatonin. Montmorency Tart Cherries are an excellent source of naturally occurring phyto-melatonin. Tru2U Sleep Support contains 100% pure tart cherry concentrate. It is an excellent natural way to increase your melatonin levels and improve your sleep. It is ideal for the whole family Melatonin is only produced at significant levels by the pineal gland when it is dark. It is imperative to sleep in a dark room with no lights for your body’s natural production of melatonin. Research conducted at Michigan State University found Montmorency Tart Cherries to contain some of the highest concentrations known of antioxidants including potent anthocyanins. These

potent antioxidants help keep the body healthy. According to Dr. Lester Packer, PhD, world renowned cell biologist, “There is overwhelming scientific evidence demonstrating that people who eat a diet rich in antioxidants will live longer, healthier lives.” Tart cherry juice has been found to support joint health, mobility, flexibility and muscle recovery. It contains an enzyme called “uricase” that helps break down uric acid in the joints, which can lead to joint pain and gout. Montmorency tart cherry juice has also been shown to significantly reduce high blood pressure at levels comparable to that achieved by medication but without the side effects of medication according to new research from Northumbria University, Newcastle. Participants with the highest blood pressure saw the most benefit. Tru2U Sleep Support is 100% pure tart cherry concentrate. It is a great product to support healthy sleep and general good health.

How’s your blood pressure? There are many tell-tale signs our health isn’t what it should be. Finding out we have higher than normal blood pressure is an important one. According to Julian Marshall, owner of Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy in New Brighton, making a few life changes can help you keep on top of it. “Our body is really amazing. It has the ability to heal itself of just about any disease if we make the effort to do the right things! Often there are signs that things are not right and this is the time to find out why. Disease doesn’t happen for no reason. Cardiovascular disease, one of the leading causes of death is generally very preventable. The secret is to make the changes before things get too bad!” Some symptoms of high blood pressure include, headaches, migraines, not noticing the cold, the feeling of pressure in the head and nose bleeds, but often the first sign that something is wrong comes in a more life threatening manner. “The kidneys don’t handle high blood pressure very well, and can become seriously damaged as a result. Or, worsecase scenario, you can suddenly have a stroke or aneurysm, or even a heart attack.” To have good cardiovascular health, the systolic reading – the blood pressure in the arteries when the heart pumps – should be 120 (or less) and the diastolic reading – which is the pressure in the arteries between beats or while the heart

is resting should be between 60 & 70. It is common when talking about blood pressure to say the systolic reading over the diastolic reading, i.e. 120/60. Blood pressure can vary considerably over a relatively short period of time. It is also best to check your blood pressure when you are relaxed at home. For this reason I recommend it is a good idea to purchase your own digital blood pressure unit and check your blood pressure regularly. They are easy to use and can give you a good indication of what may be effecting your blood pressure especially if it is high. A moderate increase in blood pressure can be caused by many things including stress & worry. Blood pressure over

140/70 is often caused by poor circulation. Poor circulation again can be caused by various factors especially plaque build-up in the blood vessels but also if the blood vessels are not supple enough or in poor condition. Calcium is an important mineral for good health. However it often builds up in the arteries as calcium plaque restricting blood flow. Researchers have found Vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 can allow this calcium to be pulled out of the arteries and absorbed into the bones and tissues where it belongs. It can therefore help prevent osteoporosis also. Montmorency tart cherry juice has been shown to significantly reduce high blood pressure at levels comparable

to that achieved by medication but without the side effects according to new research from Northumbria University, Newcastle. Participants with the highest blood pressure saw the most benefit. Recommended dosage is 30ml, two or three times daily away from food. Not only will tart cherry juice help your B/P but its powerful antioxidants and concentrated nutrients can support good health, joint function, help clear up gout and give you a much more restful deep sleep. Drinking delicious Hibiscus tea has been shown to lower elevated blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels, reduce muscle cramps as well as support the central nervous system. Try to drink at least 2-3 cups daily. The lack of magnesium can be a major contributor too, with most people having less than optimum levels. “Sure signs of being low in magnesium include having an irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, migraines, muscle cramps, twitches and night time teeth grinding are just a few.” These are just a few supplements we highly recommend to help you support your good health and blood pressure.

Get rid of dampness in your house

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

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

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

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