Teen robber strikes twice Call to ‘teach him a lesson’

FRUSTRATED: Challenge Opawa staff member Ged Hilliard, who was held up last Thursday. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

„„ By Andrew King A YOUNG teenager arrested for robbing a service station last week had been through the youth justice system after holding up the same place last year. Last Thursday night, masked, hammer-wielding robbers struck Challenge Opawa, taking more than $6000 of cash and tobacco. Police have arrested two of the four suspects, aged 14 and 15, and are seeking two others. The two that were caught have been charged with aggravated robbery. The Star has learned one of the group took part in the robbery of the service station in October. Police said yesterday they could not comment on that aspect of the case. The teenager participated in a community justice panel late last year. Hammers and a screwdriver were used as weapons in the October hold-up. A community justice panel puts offenders and victims in the same room to find a suitable punishment and help the offender make amends for the crime they have committed instead of putting young people through the court system. •Turn to page 4

Thursday June 22 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

SOCIETY DOES its best to rehabilitate young offenders and get them back on the rails. But for some, there is no hope and no matter what plans and initiatives are put in, their lives spiral out of control. Many years ago a detective told me a young burglar he had arrested would go on to kill. He did. He was involved in one of the most vicious murders the city has seen. A totally random murder of an innocent young woman. Another detective told me a young boy he was dealing with at the time had the propensity to become a very serious sex offender. How right he was. Like the killer, he is now serving a lengthy jail term for terrible crimes. So what hope is there for the young teenager who has been arrested for the Challenge Opawa service station robbery last week? (See page 1). We’re told its the same offender who robbed it in October. Chances are the justice system will see more of this fellow. – Barry Clarke

At a Glance THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

BID TO GET NATIVE BIRDS BACK Native birds could return to the city as part of a new project to get people growing mistletoe in their gardens. The city council project provides instructions and the seed to plant the native at home. Mistletoe used to be a common sight, but the plant’s popularity had dropped because native birds were rare in the city and seed wasn’t being spread naturally. Mistletoe is a favourite food of the bellbird, and by encouraging more people to grow it, it is hoped the birds will return. You can register to take part before the weekend, on the city council website.

This week in history saw the first trial of electric lighting at the Lyttelton wharves on June 19, 1882. On June 20, 1928, the Canterbury Aero Club was formed. The first pilot trained by the club was a woman, Aroha Clifford. On June 21, 1851, the Christchurch Cricket Club was formed. On the same day in 1897 there were huge celebrations for Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee which included the opening of Victoria Park on the Port Hills and the transformation of Market (Victoria) Square. In 1909 the city’s high pressure water supply began operation. On June 22, 1954, Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme (right) murder Parker’s mother in Victoria Park. Their subsequent trial was one of the most sensational in the city’s history. On June 23, 1854, Pioneer John Deans dies at Riccarton. The preservation of Deans Bush was one of his dying wishes.

News Drinking driver dobbed in by fellow motorist „„ By Andrew King A DRIVER four times the legal drink-drive limit was seen weaving all over a road before crashing into a parked vehicle in Redwood on Monday. The driver recorded 1080mcg/L. The legal limit is 250mcg/L. A member of the public driving behind the vehicle phoned

police after they saw the motorist driving erratically on Sawyers Arms Rd at about 1.30pm. They then followed the vehicle to Queen Elizabeth II Dr. The vehicle then clipped a van parked on the side of the road near St Bede’s College before coming to a stop about 200m up the road at about 1.45pm. Police arrived shortly after the crash and arrested the

driver, who is in his 40s. He was not injured in the crash. Senior Sergeant Stephan McDaniel said it was concerning that someone could be that intoxicated at that time of day and thought it was okay to drive. “This is why we have checkpoints at all different times of the day and this reinforces that need. We want to thank the

person for reporting this to us and taking the time to follow the vehicle so we could catch up with it quickly,” he said. The driver has been charged with excess breath alcohol and will appear in the district court on July 18. The incident comes days after The Star revealed last week that drink-driving statistics in Canterbury had almost halved over the last decade.

Santa parade stays afloat

POPULAR: City council funding means the annual Christchurch Santa Parade will go ahead this year. PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

“If it wasn’t for The Star, we would never have got this far,” she said. The Star has run a series of articles highlighting the parade funding problems, which began when the city council cut the parade funding at short notice last year from $97,750 to $69,000. Until the funding cut, the cost of the parade – about $200,000 per year – had been split between corporate and private sponsorship and the

city council. In December, Ms Dalziel promised the city council would not let the parade fall over and said the city council would look at including the funding in this year’s Annual Plan. But in January, the parade trustees were told in an email that there had been “no commitment so far” to set aside funding for the parade, so it would have to compete with other events for funding. The trust then turned to

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart THIS YEAR’S Santa Parade has been saved after Mayor Lianne Dalziel and city councillors approved funding for it. The parade organisers had just one month left before they ran out of money, as a funding cut last year forced them to dip into their reserves to pay for the parade. They made a passionate plea to the city counPam Morris cil last month for $100,000 to save the parade. On Tuesday, city councillors approved a $35,000 grant for this year’s parade, which would be topped up by a $65,000 grant from the city council major events fund. Christchurch Children’s Christmas Parade Trust organiser Pam Morris said it was a great relief to know the parade would not have to shut down. “It’s a victory, because it means we can actually get on with organising the parade,” she said. The parade has been run in Christchurch for more than 70 years, and she said she had been very worried it would have to be cancelled permanently.

crowd-funding on Givealittle and fundraising to pay their bills, but they could not raise enough to cover the shortfall. But after the appeal to Ms Dalziel and city councillors last month, the Annual Plan was changed to include funding for the parade. The parade costs include rent, insurance, maintenance of floats and costumes, traffic management and running costs on the day of the parade and a wage for one paid organiser.

In Brief MURDERER TO STAY IN JAIL High-profile murderer Ziggy Stardust Buckeridge, who killed a 14-year-old girl in North Canterbury 25 years ago, will stay behind bars. Buckeridge, 55, was declined parole after his latest hearing. He was deemed to pose a medium to high risk of sexual and violent reoffending. Buckeridge is serving a life sentence for murdering Rangiora teenager Julie Sands on Anzac Day, April 25, 1992. ACCIDENT VICTIM NAMED The man killed in a Rolleston workplace accident was 59-yearold Dayal Parbhu Patel. Mr Patel was killed after becoming trapped under a beam at about 12.30pm at Pegasus Engineering in the Rolleston Izone Business Hub on June 9. He died at the scene. WorkSafe have been notified. BID FOR STATE HOUSES Three community housing providers have been short-listed to take over up to 2500 Housing New Zealand properties and tenancies in Shirley, Bryndwr and Riccarton. The providers are Community Futures Christchurch, Otautahi Community Housing Consortium and a third consortium comprising Compass Housing Services Co (NZ) Ltd, AMP Capital Investors Ltd, and Brookfield Financial Australia Securities Ltd. Housing New Zealand will continue to own and manage up to 3300 properties in Christchurch. FUTURE OF EMPTY CHAIRS The city council is investigating options for where the 185 Empty Chairs on the corner of Madras and Cashel Sts could be moved to. Artist Peter Majendie spoke to city council’s social and community development committee on Monday about relocating the installation, which commemorates the people who died in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. Committee members voted to look into other sites. The current site is earmarked for the new multi-purpose arena. •Our People, page 22-23

Cameraman Ron Madden’s colourful „„ By Gabrielle Stuart RON MADDEN, a colourful TVNZ cameraman who worked for more than 40 years covering stories from conflicts in South Africa to the Canterbury earthquakes, died last week after a battle with cancer. Mr Madden, 64, began writing his own eulogy soon after he was diagnosed with cancer early last year, saying: “I would rather tell my own lies”. He began it with a paraphrase of comedian Spike Mulligan’s infamous epitaph: “See, I told you I was bloody sick!” Friends and workmates of Mr Madden said that described his attitude to life – fun, witty, forthright and irreverent. But they also described him as someone who was dependable, a great friend, and gave a huge amount of time and passion to helping others. He grew up in Christchurch and went to St Bede’s College. In his eulogy, which he worked on for months while receiving treatment, Mr Madden said the highlight was starting a gun club at school, and the worst day was getting “six of the best” for

As a cameraman he was able to do a lot of travelling, including to Antarctica, which he described as “the most boring place in the world”, and to South Africa, where he remembered riding with armed soldiers,

filming young boys playing in a rubbish dump. TVNZ South Island news operations manager Mike Fitzgerald said he had worked with Mr Madden since the early 80s. He said Mr Madden was a fantastic cameraman, with a passion for the job, a wonderful eye for a frame and an ability to engage with people.

life behind the lens remembered He captured many important moments in history, including a lot of the central city footage immediately after the February 22, 2011, earthquake, which is still used today. Mr Fitzgerald said one of Mr Madden’s biggest strengths was his ability to help people open up on camera. “I’ll always remember some of his whitebaiting pieces filmed on the Coast, where he really loved what he was doing. The colours, the sunrises and sunsets, the water, the older people’s faces, he just made it sparkle,” he said. Although Mr Madden was not impressed with Antarctica, he loved the West Coast, and also took any opportunity to get in a helicopter or four-wheeldrive. “He loved the outdoors but you wouldn’t get him hiking up a hill, he preferred to drive or fly. He had his own 4WD and he loved it, arm out the window, Ray Bans on,” Mr Fitzgerald said. He said Mr Madden had “underneath his gruff exterior, a lot of kindness,” and took the time to take many young people under his wing and train them

“before they were cool.” Outside work, Mr Madden was a passionate clay shooter, and represented New Zealand at several international championships. Former South Island Clay

Shooters president Neil Winsloe said Mr Madden was instrumental in setting up and running the club. “If there were things to be done, Ron would do them. He was a great organiser, whether it was organising accommodation for a trip or fundraising for the club. He was a lot of fun. And he was a good drinker, always had a lot of stories. Without his assistance and backing, the club would not be what it is in the South Island today, that’s for sure,” he said. Mr Madden finished his eulogy with a message to his wife, Deanne Harvey: “Thank you, thank you, Deanne, for everything.” Mr Fitzgerald said Mr Madden had to finish at work early last year because of his cancer, after barely taking a day sick in his life – he had 280 sick days owing when he left. “All in all, he was a really good person, a really decent bloke, and a bit of a legend in his own lifetime,” he said. A service to remember Mr Madden’s life will be held next month where his eulogy will be handed out..

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart TEARS, CHEERS and telling offs – Anna Wilding has had a front row view of Barack and Michelle Obama’s personal moments in the White House. The Cantabrian spent two years working in there as an independent correspondent, one of more than 200 people from across the world who make up the White House press corps. She recently moved back to Christchurch for family reasons, but said she kept her press credentials and planned to return to Washington DC later this year. She began working there in 2015, representing Herald de Paris, an online news site. She often photographed the Obamas, attended many of their meetings, and followed their political ups and downs. She said both President Obama and the then First Lady were “very emotive” people, and fascinating to watch. “I’ve seen Obama look jaded and exhausted, and I’ve seen him cheer and laugh when sports teams came in. I’ve seen him hug his staff. I’ve seen Michelle tell people off. She interacted with children, and she worked in the

White House Port Hills fire cost $4.5m The Oval Office, where she was invited to photograph President Obama sign important documents, was smaller than she had always imagined, she said. The amount of security checks and clearances she had to go through to first be approved and then to enter the White House grounds were also something she had never experienced before, she said. She was working there when Donald Trump became president, and said the atmosphere completely changed as he replaced most staff, right from the security to the interns. “I think the new administration coming in weren’t fully prepared, they didn’t have the same political background. Everyone was polite but it was chaotic.

They’re obviously still finding their feet,” she said. Ms Wilding’s background is in the film industry, and she spent some time living in LA before moving to Washington DC – but she said Hollywood was “child’s play” compared with work in the White House. She said many correspondents there had worked in the White House for 20 or 30 years, and breaking in as a New Zealander was very difficult. “You do feel like a minority, and realise we are from a very small country that doesn’t make much difference. They’d rather answer a question from someone from Korea, because of the importance of the relations there, or from one of the five major American networks,” she said. DOWN TO EARTH: Anna Wilding said Michelle Obama was never afraid to get her hands dirty, even in the White House garden.

FIGHTING THE Port Hills fires cost the Department of Conservation more than $4.5 million. Two fires, several kilometres apart, started in early February this year; two days later they had combined. Helicopter pilot and ex-SAS soldier Steve Askin died when his chopper crashed trying to fight the fires. Nine houses were destroyed and two were significantly damaged. Hundreds of people were evacuated. DOC spokesman Andy Roberts said the department contributed more than $3.5 million in operational costs and $1 million in staff and other internal costs. This amounted to about half of last year’s firefighting costs of $8.7 million. “The department supplied more than 130 fully trained rural firefighters, including fire behaviour experts, air attack managers and sector leaders during the fires, which started in February and burned for two months. “If we add in time spent on aerial mapping, incident planning and other background support roles, that would come to more than 11,000 hours of

staff time, some of whom were on duty for up to 15 hours a day. This all amounts to about 50 per cent of the total costs incurred on the Port Hills fires, which destroyed some 1660ha.” DOC has to respond to fires within a 1km margin of protected areas. No public conservation land was burned in the Port Hills fire. DOC had also helped

fight major fires at Broken River, Hawkes Bay, Hanmer and Queenstown during last summer’s fire season. More than 460 staff are fully trained to fight fires on or near conservation land. “DOC will always have an interest in rural fire and the threat it poses to the natural and heritage values that DOC is charged with protecting.

Doctors warn of wait times „„ By Gabrielle Stuart

Street lights set to go LED „„ By Bridget Rutherford THE CITY’S street lights could be replaced with LED technology in a bid to save $1.6 million each year in electricity costs. The city council is preparing an application to the New Zealand Transport Agency to apply for funding to do the work. City council planning and delivery transport manager Lynette Ellis said it would cost about $25.5 million to replace the city’s 38,000 street lights, excluding parks. If the city council’s application is approved, NZTA would pay for about $21.6 million of the total cost. Twelve per cent of the street lights on roads already have LED lights. For 2017, electricity to run the street lights was expected to cost $4.6 million, Ms Ellis said. Dunedin City Council will begin replacing its 15,000 street lights with LED technology soon, at a total cost of $14 million.

YOU MAY face a wait to see a doctor this winter, as both GPs and hospitals warn they are at capacity. The Canterbury District Health Board, which has expressed concern that beds at Christchurch Hospital will be full this winter, has asked people to call their community Kate doctor first if they Baddock are sick. But the city’s GPs have said they are also worried about numbers, and are already struggling to fit people in for appointments. CDHB planning and funding general manager Carolyn Gullery said a number of strategies were in place to manage the situation, including an “acute demand programme” that could treat people at home. She was concerned about bed numbers, especially at Christchurch Hospital, she said. “It will be a challenging winter and we recommend that

the people who have health conditions that can become worse in winter connect with their general practice team and develop a plan about what to do

if they become unwell,” she said. New Zealand Medical Association chairwoman Kate Baddock told The Star doctors had reported being too busy to

see more patients. That was because funding constraints meant some medical centres could not afford enough doctors, Dr Baddock said. But Christchurch doctors say they will not turn people away. Hornby Medical Centre practice manager Rosie Kennedy said appointments were kept free for urgent cases, David and people with Jones illnesses like the flu would be seen. She said funding was a problem, as they would build an extra room and bring in an extra doctor if they had more money. David Jones, a director of Better Health practices, which includes the Linwood, Moorhouse and Barrington medical centres, said they were under a lot of pressure. As well as the cost of extra patients, he said GPs had also faced extra technological and health and safety requirements, and the funding had not kept up.

However, he said he was simply frustrated with the prioritisation of the arches over projects residents of the city’s east have been waiting for. “I was trying to make a point over priority. Some would argue both are a priority, and the intersection (at Memorial Ave) did need addressing. It’s just frustration at different viewpoints and seeing other priorities leapfrogging what our local

„„ By Julia Evans and Sarla Donovan CITY COUNCILLOR Glenn Livingstone has lashed out over spending on the new airport Gateway Bridge arches on social media. On Saturday, fellow councillor Vicki Buck posted a picture of the bridge’s arches at the Memorial Ave/Russley Rd intersection to her Facebook page. Cr Livingstone kicked back replying: “What a waste of money.” The arches have attracted a lot of criticism from the public due to their $4 million price tag.

He also admitted all elected city council members are guilty of “letting fly” on social media from time to time. Cr Buck responded to his comment by posting a breakdown of how much funding the city council was putting into each ward. The arches are funded by the National Land Transport Fund not the city council.

A 24-YEAR-OLD shot in the face by police is a convicted sex offender, it can now be revealed. Murray James Allan (right) pleaded guilty to a variety of charges in the district court on Friday after the incident in Woolston earlier this year. Police fired on Allan after he aimed a blank firing pistol at officers when a patrol went to search the parked vehicle he was in. Records show in January 2013, the then 19-year-old was jailed for three years and two months for having non-consensual sex with a 14-year-old in what was described as “very close to rape”. The court was told the girl was emotionally traumatised, and had tried to commit suicide twice following it. At the time, Allan’s presentence report said he could cause a “high level of harm” if he

offended again. Allan was released on parole on December 3, 2015, with conditions he would not have any unsupervised contact with under-16s, or with the victim. Allan has been remanded in custody, and will be sentenced for the February incident on August 10. Police had been on an unrelated call out at 2am when they stopped to question Allan and another man in the parked car. When officers thought they saw a cannabis pipe in the vehicle they said they were going to search it and called for back up. Allan then produced the pistol and aimed it at one of the officers, prompting police to shoot him in the side of the face. He was given first aid, before being taken to hospital in an ambulance with minor injuries.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER VALUES: Architect Carsten Auer, who will redesign Linwood College, stands in the recreation area. Right – The award-winning St Andrew’s College chapel.

Linwood College design in hands of award-winner „„ By Bridget Rutherford AN award-winning company that designed the St Andrew’s College chapel and the bus interchange will do the architecture for Linwood College’s redevelopment. Architectus has been awarded the contract for the full-school rebuild and redevelopment. The company’s other projects include the bus interchange, St Andrew’s chapel, the central city’s new Knowledge Centre, and more than 30 school projects across the country. Company director Carsten Auer will be the lead architect. His previous work includes Lyttelton Primary School’s master plan, the city’s Innovation Precinct spatial framework, St Cuthbert’s College performing arts centre and Auckland Grammar School’s sports complex.

He said schools were more than places to learn – they helped shape the identity of the community. So any design had to reflect that and the values and culture of the community. “This project is special not only for its scale but in particular for the strong pedagogical vision developed by the college and the leadership role it is looking to undertake in the revitalisation of the eastern suburbs of Christchurch.” He said the project was personal for him as he lived in Redcliffs, which was part of Linwood’s catchment, and he wanted to contribute to shaping the future of the school. “I believe the current college leadership is working successfully to rebuild the confidence of all of their community in what Linwood College has to, and can, offer.” Principal Richard

Edmundson said the awarding of the contract was a step forward in the redevelopment. The school’s buildings have reached the end of their lifespan, and it has carried out significant consultation with the community on how it could look and feel better. It wants to become the school of choice for students living in its catchment, including Sumner, Redcliffs, Mt Pleasant, and Lyttelton, many of whom travel to schools on the other side of town. The redevelopment comes after a limited statutory manager was asked to step into the school in 2014 to resolve issues between staff and management. Principal Margaret Paiti resigned in June 2015 after five years in the role. Physical building work was expected to begin on site next year.

Police seize weapons; name fire victim „„ By Andrew King POLICE SEIZED a rifle and knife from a vehicle they pulled over in the early hours of Wednesday. The suspicious vehicle was stopped on Holland St in Avonside at 3.33am. A police spokeswoman could not determine if the car was reported to police, or if it was stopped after being noticed by the patrolling officers.

They searched the vehicle and found a rifle in the boot and a knife. A 34-year-old man was arrested and charged with possession of an offensive weapon and unlawful possession of a firearm. He will appear in the district court on June 27. •The Australian man who died after a central city motel fire on June 14 was 44-year-old Jason Edward

Sillick. Mr Sillick suffered critical injuries in the blaze at the City Central Motel Apartments, on the corner of Barbadoes and Hereford Sts, at about 6.50am. Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Worner would not be drawn on what had caused the fire but said it was “not accidental.” Police have examined CCTV footage from the motel, and are not looking for anyone else connected.

Fake Lions gear bust at stadium FAKE LIONS tour gear was seized at AMI Stadium before the match against the Crusaders. Government officials are cracking down on the sale of fake merchandise during the tour. A Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment spokeswoman confirmed fake Lions tour gear had been seized before games in Christchurch, Dunedin and Rotorua. “A group of individuals

have been selling items with unauthorised association with the Lions series.” MBIE tourism, sectors, regions and cities general manager Iain Cossar said it is “currently investigating a small number of incidents involving the sale of merchandise” and “three to four individuals” have been responsible for it. The spokeswoman said MBIE has served “a

number” of breach notices under the Major Events Management Act 2007, and “continues to gather evidence should the ministry decide to prosecute.” MBIE has not encountered any people selling fake All Blacks merchandise before games. The series status as a major event under the Act means it has protection for specific words and emblems closely associated with the tour.

Retirees bid to revive Garden City image „„ By Gabrielle Stuart A GROUP of gardeners are cultivating a plan to put Christchurch back on the map as the Garden City – a public garden the size of nine rugby fields, created by retirees. The plan has been designed by Christchurch Beautifying Association members, who are working with private developers to create it. Their plan is to create a 50-60 unit retirement village, where residents would all be gardeners. Each unit would have its own garden, maintained by the owner – but the gardens would all be connected and open to the public, forming a giant public park. On Monday, association president Ron Andrew and former president Brian Briggs put the plan to the city council’s social and community development committee.

Committee chairman Phil Clearwater said staff had been asked to look at ways the city council could be involved and support the project. That could include building a community hall or facility in the park, or helping the group through the consenting process to speed it up. Mr Briggs said he already had a list of people interested in buying units in the village, and had met with developers willing to build it. “I often talk to people about going into a retirement home, and they say, ‘no, I definitely won’t do that, because I won’t have a garden’,” he said. The plan would allow people to downsize into a supported living environment, while still giving them space to be creative and contribute to the community, he said. “It would be a real dream come true for a lot of peo-

ple,” he said. The group is currently working with building company G.J Gardner Homes, and are looking at creating the village on a 9.5ha piece of land near Papanui. Mr Briggs said each unit would be designed to look like a little cottage, but would have a fully modern interior. The estimated cost of each unit title would be about $350,000, he said. Once set up, the village would be run by a body corporate. Mr Andrew said he believed the village could be a huge asset for the city. After Christchurch won the Garden City of the World title in 1997, thousands of people travelled from as far as the United States and Japan to visit, he said. He hoped the village could become a similar attraction. •Gardening, page 37

Importing makeup proves a success for Walk to prevent suicide determined couple

„„ By Bridget Rutherford MORE THAN 500 people are expected to gather in Hagley Park this weekend to raise awareness for suicide prevention. HopeWalk Christchurch will take place from 8-9am on Saturday, starting at the Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre. HopeWalk Suicide Prevention Trust founder Joseph Fa’afiu said the walk would bring people together to show people are not alone. They would be wearing yellow – the colour of hope. The trust aims to break the stigma, shame and silence around suicide. A coroner’s report said Canterbury had the highest number of suicides in the country from July 2015 to July 2016, with 78. In the last decade, there were 599 suicides in Canterbury. Mr Fa’afiu said trauma and anxiety, which could lead to depression, was a high contributor to the high suicide rate in Christchurch. “If we look at the

ongoing earthquakes in Christchurch this can also act as more external pressure. I’m not saying it’s the only contributor, but it has added weight to a lot of people’s lives, weight that some may not be able to carry.” Other HopeWalks will take place across the country and Australia and Canada. •For more information, visit the HopeWalk Christchurch 2017 Facebook page.

Top brands in makeup, skin care and fragrance are offered at significantly lower prices than normal retail at The Makeup Sale in the Bush Inn Centre, Christchurch and George Street, Dunedin. “Our mission is that we want our customers to save money – that’s what the business is designed for,” says owner Palak Harry. Palak and husband Alex arrived in Christchurch from India in 2012 with just $700, wanting to settle here and start a business. Palak had previous business experience, and decided that for their New Zealand business venture she would import cosmetics and sell them here. Reaching their goal hasn’t been an easy road, however. “We had a very rough start,” she says. “After working and saving the money to start the business we ordered our first stock, but it didn’t arrive. So, we saved up again and ordered stock from the United States. It arrived, but it was all expired so we had to get rid of it all.”

Despite these setbacks, Palak was determined to carry on with her plans. “In my heart, I believed there would be a good supplier, and eventually, after a few more attempts I found one.” The couple bought a small quantity from the US supplier and sold the products from their home. When this proved successful, they started selling at the Sunday market, with Alex still working full-time and all their extra money going back into the business. The next step was opening pop-up stores on four days a week – Wednesday to Saturday.

Owners: Alex & Palak Harry

“We opened them as an ‘event’, in different towns around the South Island –Timaru, Dunedin, Nelson and Blenheim. We were all over the South Island for a couple of years and also in Christchurch at The Palms, Hornby, Northlands Mall and the Bush Inn. These proved a great financial success and continued to grow, but with Palak now pregnant with their first child, they decided it was time to settle down. So in January 2016 they opened their first store, The Makeup Sale, in the Bush Inn Centre, with a second store opening in Dunedin in September 2016. Palak now employs nine staff over the two stores. “We will still have the pop-up stores in Northlands Mall starting in August/September,” Palak says, “and we are looking at opening another permanent store in Rangiora.” The Makeup Sale stocks a wide selection of top brands including Revlon, Almay, L’Oreal, Maybelline, Rimmel of London, New York Colors and Cover Girl. They are also the exclusive New Zealand stockists of the UK brand Technic. “An example of the savings for customers is more than 50 per cent on foundations – they are never more than $20,” Palak says. “We also have a huge range of fragrances. We buy products at lower prices and pass these low prices on to our customers.”

Ensuring collaboration ON Monday afternoon about 300 people gathered at The Piano on Armagh St for the first City Leaders’ Forum. When I was appointed Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration just over seven weeks ago, I committed to keeping the community as up-to-date as possible and working alongside Mayor Lianne Dalziel, the city council, Regenerate Christchurch and Otakaro, as well as other agencies and community groups. I did this because I firmly believe that by working together we can create something really special. The forum, hosted by the mayor and I, was the first in a series of events to ensure greater collaboration and cooperation among our city’s leadership. It was an opportunity to communicate our successes, our challenges and the milestones we’ve achieved since the quakes. It was also an opportunity for open and honest discussion on key rebuild and regeneration issues. The mayor and I are united in our commitment to making

Nicky Wagner Christchurch the best possible place to live, work and raise a family. We see a city full of opportunity. Accompanied by a panel of local business leaders, community group representatives and regeneration partners, we discussed concepts such as maintaining momentum and effective collaboration, as well as specific regeneration projects like the metro sports facility, performing arts precinct and residential red zone. Christchurch is lucky to have so many leaders of such a high calibre — all of whom want what’s best for their city. I’m a naturally optimistic and positive person but that doesn’t mean ignoring the challenges we’re facing or the work that still needs to be done. By working together, by more actively engaging with the community and staying focused on the task at hand, we can and will be successful. I look forward to the next forum at the end of next month.

Health funding ‘botch-up’ hurts Canterbury patients

•From page 17 Hamish Wilson – But she’s happy out there, sailing on the Waitemata Harbour. Hugh Jonathan McGuire – That’s disappointing. The artist behind the 185 Empty Chairs tribute is working to make it permanent – and creators of The Lord of the Rings movies may help to make it happen Juliet Dalley – I love this memorial as it helps to visualise each person no longer with us. As the article says – “the missing chair at the table”. I appreciate not all people will share my sentiments, but for me this makes a much greater statement than the new memorial. Good luck to the artist (Mr Peter Majendie) and I do hope the city council seriously considers the proposal. It will be sad to lose this significant tribute to all those that we lost. Julie Foster – I think it’s a very visual and powerful memorial to those we lost on a day that changed our lives forever, I personally think the 185 chairs have a place in our city and in our hearts.

Jan Wikaira – I love this memorial. It came first and from the heart and I would love to see it find a permanent place. Bronwyn Hendry – This is one of the most powerful installations I’ve seen in my life. I really hope it stays. It is an important part of history now.

Stephen Graham – We have our permanent memorial now. The chairs memorial served its purpose well. Time to move on. On the other hand, there’s nothing to stop the artist from displaying it on his own private property.

Ali Greening – This a place I go when I’m grieving the loss of people, lifestyle and opportunity. There is something here that recognises that sometimes life sucks, and we are forever affected by the loss of someone or something. Something that I do not find at the other memorial. Yes, it came from the earthquakes, but it is about so much more. •Our People, p22 & 23

What’s being done about Canterbury’s water quality?

JUST WHEN we thought things couldn’t get any more difficult for our underfunded Canterbury District Health Board they have been dealt a proverbial kick in the guts. A botch-up with the numbers in the National Government’s budget has resulted in an error in funding allocations nationally, meaning 14 district health boards were given too much money and would have to give up some of their funding to even out six DHBs that were short-changed. After initially being told how much money they’d receive, DHB leaders were then summoned to Wellington and told their Budget allocations will be changed. Canterbury is on the losing end of this maths and loses $2.69m in funding. To my mind, Minister of Health Jonathan Coleman has to front up and answer serious questions about how this gross error occurred. It’s fair to say Mr Coleman has egg on his face after a Budget that he’d rather forget. There is no doubt that staff made an error but I am old-fashioned when it comes to these matters

– the buck stops fair and square with the minister. While this is embarrassing for the minister, the bigger impact is that some DHBs will have to make sharper cuts than expected. This affects patients directly. It means if you are waiting for a hip or a knee consultation or surgery, the uncertainty will continue. Critically, it also means that there is no much-needed additional funding here in Canterbury for our mental health services which are at crisis point. This mess adds insult to injury after a Budget that offered nothing new on mental health, failed to fund primary care adequately and allowed the funding shortfall under this Government’s watch to stretch out to a cumulative $2.3 billion. It’s clear that due to his mismanagement of health funding, there will be real losers across the country. After nine years, New Zealanders deserve better. It’s time for a fresh approach. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

Look a little deeper at the action being taken to improve our precious water. This year, there are new requirements on farmers to limit the effects of farming on water quality. The majority of farmers are already doing the right thing, but more needs to be done to truly improve our precious water. We are working with farmers so that they know exactly what they need to do. It will take time for these improvements to have an effect on our water quality and quantity, but we’re off to a good start. Look a little deeper at

Peter Majendie

Artist makes bid to find new home Peter Majendie is trying to find a permanent location for his 185 Empty Chairs. Bridget Rutherford spoke to him about creating a place for people to remember their loved ones and his stand-up comedy career So Peter, I see you are looking for a new home for your 185 Empty Chairs. How is that going? Well, at the moment on our website you can vote for where you’d like to see the 185 chairs move to, like the CTV building site, the Botanic Gardens or Latimer Square. Latimer Square seems to be the most favoured place. We’ve been told it’s not moving to the CTV site. So I’m talking to the city council to see if there is somewhere they can go and what the future is for it. How long have you been looking for a new site? Our proposal to make it permanent was with CERA a good two years ago, because where it is now is earmarked for the new stadium. We’re there

for as long as the church meets on that site. It’s always been a temporary site. When we set it up, it was going to be up for three weeks. We did it for the first anniversary of the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Why do you think they have remained for five years? When we put it up, I was pretty sure it would work. I think immediately it was pretty popular. It’s very open-ended and people could engage with it. Whenever

we thought about taking it away, I’d get a lot of emails. As far as the chairs go, I can remember in the first few months meeting a young guy, he would have been about 12, and he’d bike to the chairs and he would sit there and

chat to his mum. He needed a memorial then – not six years later. I think one of the things the chairs have done is transcended the earthquake. Where do the chairs come from? My closest friend lost a sonin-law in the earthquake, and I asked him if I could paint a chair. We bought chairs on Trade Me and a few places have donated chairs. Over the years, we’ve had working bees and people have brought chairs along to paint. I still get them from the Salvation Army and the EcoShop, I’m painting about 10 at the moment. We’ve had very few thefts, the wheelchair was stolen, and we’ve had a little bit of damage through vandalism, but not much at all. It’s really the weather that breaks them down so we need to replace some. And speaking of the weather, I hear you have been chatting to Weta Workshop about making the chairs more permanent? We have cast one in aluminium to see how it would work. We went to Weta to get options of how we could make them more permanent, or make new ones. We could 3D print them.

for his 185 Empty Chairs memorial Where did you take your inspiration from? The 1995 Oklahoma bombing memorial is made up of chairs. I do speak on Vincent van Gogh – he painted chairs depicting personality – I think that was the strongest influence. I know some people have said they don’t want a chair to represent their loved one but the empty chair speaks of the absence of the person. And you mentioned your friend’s son-in-law died in the quake, did you know anyone else? Not well. I’d done quite a bit of art around town and I had been interviewed by CTV a number of times, so I did know people who worked there. Did that make the 185 Empty Chairs more personal for you? It was, especially my friend’s son-in-law. It’s been a privilege, I’ve met some wonderful people with amazing stories. People who help maintain the chairs feel they are actually doing something, because they are all hand-painted. One guy suffered serious injuries in the earthquake and it took him two hours to paint the wheelchair, and I think he found it quite

therapeutic. No-one who was in a wheelchair was killed, but I know three people did finish up in wheelchairs. There were a few people who came along and it was their first time coming into town since the day of the quake. You must meet a lot of affected people there? Yes, because it’s so open-ended and an everyday object people can engage. Someone told me he

remembered his son from the little baby carrier, through to the high chair, school chair, the swivel chair at work. And some people connect with just one chair. What other art work have you done in Christchurch? We used to do large-scale peace labyrinths in Latimer Square. They were very interactive. We also wrapped the

orange tree for the launch of the Canterbury Community Trust’s $25 million earthquake fund. It was on the corner of Manchester St and Oxford Tce. We used hundreds of metres of fabric for that. And can you tell me a bit about Sidedoor Arts Trust, and what it’s all about? Sidedoor has run for about 14 years. It came from a contemplative space that my wife Joyce and I created for people going out the back door of church to help connection and reflection. As for the chairs, a friend of mine has done his masters thesis around community homelessness. He interviewed a lot of homeless people in Christchurch and they were telling him the chairs for them are a sacred place. They would sit there and smoke and drink, and I have no problem with that, but they would never sleep there, it’s a set-apart space. In some sense, the Margaret Mahy Family Playground is a sacred space. It’s an absolute joy – I take my grandkids there. Those are the sort of things the city needs to give it some soul. That was one of the reasons we decided to push ahead with making the chairs permanent.

On another note, I hear you’re also a bit of a stand-up comedian. Can you tell me about that? I did it on the tram and I’ve done stand-up in Auckland and overseas in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia. It revolves around the fact I’m deaf, my parents were deaf. I’ve had a couple of operations and have the most powerful hearing aids you can get and a pretty good phone. My parents went deaf in their 20s so I knew what it was like. I think in some ways that was quite influential on my art. We are so dependent on words, so through art I’m trying to say things visually. And what do you like to do in your spare time? I like my mountain biking. I’ve had some pretty spectacular crashes. And I have six grandkids who are a constant joy and I am quite involved with. Joyce and I are about to go with our youngest son, his wife and three kids to Paris and the UK. Sounds exciting, and did you grow up in Christchurch? I grew up in Brighton and I’ve always lived here. We’re in Heathcote now.

TRAVEL I 2

meet mE at merivale coogee, potts point, paddington, newport... sydney’s a foodies paradise!

Sydney needs little introduction. Chances are if you’ve visited Sydney a few times, you would have stuck mainly to the beaten track; shopping in the CBD, Bondi Junction and down Oxford Street; lunching in and around the harbour and at Wooloomooloo Wharf, maybe a surfing lesson on Bondi Beach or a day trip to Manly and the Northen beaches on the Ferry. While I’d happily spend every trip doing just this, there are unsurprisingly some pockets of amazingness to be found not too far away from these favourite haunts. A great way to venture in to some new Sydney neighbourhoods is to use the Merivale Group as a starting point. The hospitality superweights, established by the Hemmes family has a growing portfolio of more than 65 restaurants, bars, pubs, hotels and function spaces that are all spectacularly unique. It appears that they have the hospitality midas touch with all their venues, opening to steller reviews for both food and

ambience. On the eastern side of Sydney, Merivale’s Coogee Pavilion is somewhere you can easily spend a day. Complete with petanque, giant magnetic scrabble, ping pong and an in-house theatrette, it’s a venue that ticks the boxes for every age. A market style food court concept inhabits the ground level, offering oysters to wood-fire pizza. On the rooftop the four indoor and outdoor bars, have huge balconies that boast wraparound views of the Coogee shoreline. Coogee is really Bondis little unappreciated sister. You’ll find a swim at the pictureque Whylie’s or McIver’s Baths, one of the few remaining womens only ocean pools, located on the rocks next to Coogee Beach, is right up there with Bondi’s Icebergs pool. Coogee carries a less pretentious air than its Bondi neighbours and has the added bonus of being either the start or finish of the popular Bondi to Coogee coastal walk.

Another infamous place many people visit in Sydney is Kings Cross. But step sideways a few metres and you’ll end up in Potts Point. Worlds apart in terms of sophistication and grandeur, here you’ll find the home to a growing number of Merivale’s restaurants. Behind a door bathed in pink neon on Victoria Street, you’ll find Ms G’s which is ‘modern Asian’ and will be ‘unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before’. The graffiticovered walls, uber stylish lighting and jam jar decorated ceiling are hipster cool. The menu is exceptional too and mashes together the very best combination of Chinese to Vietnamamese, to Korean. While you’re in Potts Point if you’re interested in architecture, you may want to visit Elizabeth Bay House to appreciate the grand old architecture of yesteryear or visit Macleay St which has plenty of clothing boutiques. Potts Point is often referred to as the little France of Sydney, with beautiful tree-lined streets, art deco terrace houses and european styled cafes, you’re bound to spot plenty of expensive sports cars and lap dogs sitting pretty amongst the euro styled locals. You couldn’t mention Merivale without covering the Ivy complex in the CBD. Home to award-winning restaurants, Sydney’s only rooftop pool bar, numerous event spaces and leading fashion and lifestyle retailers, the Ivy ensures the perfect CBD outing starts in George street. While many of us won’t be wanting to don a bikini and head to the super glitzy pool club on the top floor, The Ivy’s Felix and Ash St. Cellar in comparison offer an oasis of relative

maturity. Fred’s and Charlie’s Parkers, Merivale’s highly-anticipated Paddington venues, which opened towards the end of last year, are both venues worth visiting if you hit the Oxford Street shopping strip. 31 kms north of the CBD on the stunning shores of Pittwater, another of Justin Hemme’s renovations, The Newport makes a great pitstop if you’re heading north on a day-trip to the stunning northern beaches of Avalon or Palm Beach. Boasting Australia’s largest outdoor waterfront beer garden, The Newport like all of the Merivale Groups ventures has multiple, eclectic, themed spaces to drink and dine in. With live music often playing and a ‘vintage gymnasium’ with badminton, exercise bikes that can charge mobile phones, ping pong tables, outdoor petanque and concrete table tennis courts, there’s no shortage of entertainment. Like the Coogee Pavilion, the Newport menu is based on a community market concept, where different food stalls feature everything from a grass-fed beef burger and fresh shucked oysters, to spit-roasted pork, fresh pastries and a pizzeria and salad bar too. As a word of warning, if you visit one of Merivale’s venues you’re sure to get hooked. And as you should always be prepared to pack an extra bag to fill with shopping on a trip to Sydney, once you’ve discovered the Merivale venus, also prepare to pack on a couple of kgs from sampling the incredible assortment of mouthwatering restaurants.

art for everyone

The Christchurch Art Show held it’s fourth consecutive show at The Events Centre, Wigram Air Force Museum of New Zealand in Christchurch from June 15 - 18. Described as a show with “art for everyone”, the Christchurch Art Show, over four days showcases works by New Zealand artists. At only $10 for entry in to the show it’s an inexpensive way to peruse artworks in a gallery meets tradeshow style setting. All artworks are for sale. A feature of this years event was the “biggest ever wall of art” measuring 21 metres long. The wall held a signature work of the top ten artists that the public voted they wanted to see return from the 2016 show. The 2017 top ten artists were; Joel Hart: Joel creates multi-dimensional, pop-culture inspired urban works, often incorporating women. Marie Kjestrup Adams: Marie uses bold brush strokes, line, colour and layering to create expressive, free flowing works capturing movement, flair and the excitement of every day life. Liz Turnbull: Liz’s works explore our landscape. She has a fascination with light, water and the outdoors and how our landscape’s mood can be changed by light alone. Odelle Morshuis: Recent pieces are paintings of figures framed with layers of engraved glass. Joe McMenamin: Joe’s flowing organic patterns that ripple through his works have won him a following throughout New Zealand. Jane Riley: Jane’s artworks depict the beauty she sees and interprets with tremendous energy, passion and flair, often incorporating textures of sand, gemstones, shells and other natural materials. Janyne Fletcher: Jayne is an Otago-based photographer who clearly knows the nuances of the region’s weather and land. Megan Huffadine: The objects and forms in her work are derived from the Central Otago locale. Seeds, remnants and discards are sketched from memory, scale is altered and then these are developed into new forms. Susan Hurrel Fieldes: Susan’s printmaking works are abstract and often focus on the solarplate, collagraph and drypoint methods. John Burns: John’s artwork is bold. Some have stories, some are crazy, gentle, mad, kind, thoughtful, different and thats a word I hear a lot about my art, and a word I like... to be different. If you haven’t been to the Art Show, you should definitely add it on to your 2018 ‘to-do’ list.

If you’re looking for a new breakfast, lunch or dinner spot, The Little High Eatery is it. The newest addition to High Street is calling the old Mackenzie Willis building home. With an upmarket foodcourt/foodtruck concept, you can choose from eight different eateries; Bacon Brothers, A Mouse Called Bean, Eight Grains, Noodle Monk, Base Pizza, El Fogon Grill, Caribe Latin Kitchen and Sushi Soldier. Far from the standard mall-style foodcourt, the attention to detail at Little High is impeccable. Each of the eatery zones has it’s own distinctive decor, adding to the market feel. Caribe Latin Kitchen has a brightly tiled bar and eclectic mix of prints on the wall and Bacon Bros has the front of an old truck at the counter. The lighting is impressive with each eatery decked out with an ambience to match. Over at El Fogon the chunky rustic pendants are turned down low creating a very authentic Latin American grill feel, where in stark contrast over at Eight Grains the lights are up high, illuminating the minimilist Japanese kitchen. With over 40 craft beers from all around the world to choose from and sake, sangria and margaritas, you’ll be forgiven for popping back here time and time again to make your way through the drinks lists. The menus won’t disappoint either. Handed a buzzer upon ordering at each of the eatery counters, there are no rules as to how many diferent options your group samples. Many of the menu items are designed to be shared, making a perfect opportunity to sample a variety of the the mouthwatering dishes on offer. A spicy serving of Quesidillas at the Caribe Latin Kitchen washed down with a Dos Equis Lager was my pick. To be honest i’d be happy making this my go-to choice, was it not for the fact that evey plate that past my eyeline looked incredible. I’ve added the dumplings at Eight Grains and a bowl from Noodle Monk to my next visit wish-list, but I know that i’ll keep going back to make my way around the venue. For those still working in the CBD, a coffee from A Mouse Called Bean which used to be housed in the Re:Start Mall and a breakfast burger from Bacon Brothers would be a great pick. It’s so good that i’d even suggest heading in for a mid-afternoon snack. Maybe opt for somethig slightly left-field with a Japanese green tea ice cream or churros. It’s proving to be sublimly popular so finding a seat on the weekend can be a gamble, but with long opening hours (from 7am-10pm Sunday-Wednesday and open until midnight Thursday-Saturday) you’re not restricted to head for just lunch or dinner. Being able to park in the Wilsons carpark right outside the front door adds to the appeal too. At this stage until the new venue buzz dies down a little I wouldn’t suggest turning up with a big group. It’s easier to jump on the end of one of the longer shared tables or bar leaners than secure a table or booth during peak feeding times. www.littlehigh.co.nz

LAW / BEAUTY I 6

what is important to you? It is interesting what people perceive as important beauty/appearance items when asked to name the three items they couldn’t do without if told they were going to a desert island indefinitely. A cross section of males and females ranging from 52 to 95 years old were asked the question. Oddly only one person asked if they would be there on their own. Their replies follow:

Elizabeth - 68 Coconut oil - It can be used internally and externally, hair brush, nail scissors.

Francis - 73 Sunglasses, hairbrush, nail file.

Susie - 63 Moisturiser with sunscreen, mouthwash and lip gloss (Chanel Exotique no 12)

Jo - 75 Magnifying mirror, tweezers and sunscreen.

Go ask your friends. It can lead to an interesting discussion!

JoAN - 95 Dior foundation, Oil of Olay moisturiser and a ‘good’ lipstick.

ANNA - 59 & SARA - 62 Oddly two sisters Anna and Sara both chose identical items: moisturiser with sunscreen particularly for the lips, smudgy charcoal eye pencil and mouth wash.

Philip - 69 A huge cake of soap, piksters for cleaning my teeth and an endless supply of mouth wash.

Pene - 52 Scissors, mirror, scrubbing brush.

Mike - 66 A toothbrush so my teeth aren’t caked in raw fish, moisturiser to keep sun and salted skin from going wrinkly and a comfy pillow so I get my beauty sleep.

JOHN - 82 The biggest, thickest supply of loo paper, Laphroaig mouth wash, (for those in the dark, this is actually single malt whiskey and a hairbrush.)

CAPACITY

WORDS FLEUR MCDONALD As lawyers, we are required to meet with our clients and take their instructions in order to help them complete the particular legal task(s) they are planning. Sometimes when we do this, we need to take a little extra time to consider our clients legal or mental capacity to make decisions. Mental or legal capacity is a client’s capacity to make a decision. Decision making requires that a client: • understands the decision they are having to make • can discuss with us the possible options available to them in a way that shows they appreciate the risk and or benefit of those options • understands the impact that a decision, or the lack of a decision, may have on them or their loved ones • is able to articulate and discuss all of the above with us. It is important to note that the level of capacity required isn’t the same in every situation. For example, to make a Will the test is whether the client knows they are making a Will and the effect of doing so, whether they understand the extent of the assets they are dealing with and finally, whether they comprehend the moral claims which they ought to give effect to. However, when giving instructions to complete Enduring Powers of Attorney the test is whether the client understands the consequences of granting a power of attorney and the nature and effect of the power they are giving. This is the test even in a situation where the client is no longer capable of managing their own affairs. Having these discussions with our clients

is difficult. It can be very confronting, both for our clients and for us. In a worst case scenario, our clients can be very offended by us questioning their capacity. This is not our intention. Our intention is to ensure that the legal outcome our clients have set out to achieve, has the best possible opportunity to succeed. We are aware however that if there is a likelihood that our client’s decision might be challenged, one of the first questions that may be raised is whether our client had the capacity required to make the decision in the first place. The best way of mitigating this risk may be for our clients to undertake a capacity assessment prior to completing their legal work. It is best that the assessment be scheduled as close as possible to the appointment to complete the legal work they are contemplated. It is important for us to write to our client’s doctor to explain to them the background of the situation, the legal test that is at issue and to request a detailed report regarding our client’s capacity to make the decision in question. For the reasons discussed above, if you have concerns about your capacity or the capacity of a loved one, it is critical that you obtain advice from a team well versed in dealing with these matters. At Harmans we have a specialist seniors team to help you with any queries you may have. Contact Fleur McDonald on 352-2293 to arrange an appointment to discuss your situation. 1. 2. 3.

Twelfth Night comes to Fortune! Twelfth Night is sure to be a raucous, wild production and a great night out for all.

bangin brows show some brow love. treat yourself to a specialised brow treatment. As we age the hair on our bodies becomes lighter and sparser, making it even more important to maintain our brows. A well-shaped brow gives a look of confidence and really balances the face and frames the eyes. It’s also said that eyebrows play the most important role in creating the facial symmetry that makes a person look attractive. There have been many trends with eyebrow shapes and colour, but natural and full eyebrows will never go out of style. If you haven’t got a naturally full brow or you’ve had a long history of tweezering, there’s still hope. There are a few products that actually help to repair damaged eyebrows or create an illusion of thicker brows and in recent years specialty eyebrow bars have popped up, offering expert advice and techniques. To get the low-down on what we should be doing with our brows, Kim Mchugh, Brow Artist and Founder of The Eyebrow Bar on Colombo Street gave us the answers; 1> I’ve tweezed my eyebrows to death over the years, is there anything that can be done? Firstly (and most importantly), step away from the tweezers! A daunting concept but totally necessary to give yourself the best chance of rekindling the ‘Brow Love’. Secondly, book an appointment with me and I can recommend a plan to get your brows back on track. It’s advised to not remove any hairs for at least 4 - 8 weeks prior to your appointment, that way I can see what growth is coming back and which areas need TLC. A ‘Custom Colour Brow Tint’ can be a real savior. It can reveal a fuller, more defined brow literally in a matter of seconds in some cases. It’s also great for giving the brows more depth and helps to disguise the greys. There are some fantastic results-based, growth enhancing serums that are especially formulated to encourage the growth in patchy areas. Come and see me to have a chat as they’re not suitable for everyone... if the damage has been done and the follicle is dead, it won’t encourage any more growth but it may help to prevent

future hair loss. If you’re not keen on a chemical based product then I also recommend trying Castor Oil or Organic Coconut oil. In my experience, applying this to the brow area can also help stimulate new growth and give a lovely glossy finish to the hairs. Time is also key - be patient. In my experience, it can take anywhere from 4 months - 18 months for the completion of your new ‘Bangin’ Brows’. If you’ve tried all of the above but to no avail, then Microblading is for you. Be very careful when you choose your Microblading technician, it’s paramount that you do your research and always choose a qualified and experienced practitioner who has a solid background in brows. I can’t stress that point enough! 2> Can you tell us what your eyebrow revolution treatment entails? The Eyebrow Revolution is my most popular treatment. It starts with a consultation - we have a chat about your concerns and see what we can do to achieve your brow goals. A brow tint and shape is then performed and brow cosmetics are applied to give them a flattering finish. 3> Who do you consider to have perfect brows? I absolutely adore Cara Delevingne’s brows. They’re naturally amazing and have that untouched look which is my favourite. 4> What are we aiming for with our brows.....there seem to be a lot of full browed girls around at the moment? I’m a fan of natural looking brows. My advice to the readers is this; embrace your natural shape as natural never goes out of fashion. Also, invest in a specialised brow treatment, it’s well worth it. www.theeyebrowbar.co.nz

LIFESTYLE / FITNESS I 8

On pointe want a ballerina style pyhsique like natalie portman in the black swan....then give barre fitness a twirl. Has anyone asked you to try barre fitness? While barre has origins in dance, the rhythmically challenged shouldn’t worry. Most barre classes follow the same basic structure. You’ll most likely start with a warm-up, then move in to some planking and push-ups, do a series of arm exercises (sometimes with hand weights), and then continue at the bar with a lower-body section to work your bigger muscles like the quads, glutes and calves. You’ll also put your core to action with a series of either bar or mat based exercises. A class will finish off with some relaxation and stretching. The isometric contractions that make up the bulk of a barre class occur when the muscle tenses without changing length. Isometric exercise is a great way to maintain muscle strength. If you’re wanting to sculpt a leaner longerlooking and more graceful physique aka Natalie Portman in Black Swan then here we breakdown the different types of Barre THE KEY BENEFITS ARE: training for you. • toned arms and back • sculpted thighs and lifted seat TYPES OF BARRE: • strong, flat abdomen BARRE3 • firm elongated muscles Ballet meets yoga and pilates • improvement in your coordination Using a yoga mat, ball and ballet barre. • increased flexibility and posture including improvement in your overall postural PURE BARRE alignment Similar to Barre3 but with a cardio kick. • strength and endurance Ball, ballet barre and hand weights. • increase in energy and body awareness BOOTY BARRE Created by celebrity fitness instructor Tracey Mallett. Ball, ballet barre and resistance bar.

Lyndal Woodham brought Bootybarre to New Zealand, back in 2013 and in 2015 she had the honour of becoming the NZ Master Trainer for Bootybarre, enabling her to grow the brand in New Zealand. Created by celebrity trainer Tracey Mallett in 2009, it’s now taught in 25 different countries. Lyndal has since set up the On Pointe Studio where she teaches classes for all ages and fitness levels. Barre fitness stems from the exercises ballet dancers use to keep fit and trim. Can you tell us how your bootybarre differs? What are the key health/ mind benefits of attending your classes? Bootybarre is a fusion fitness of Pilates,Yoga and Dance, you don’t have to be an expert or have any previous experience. We use the barre for support and resistance and it helps with our balance. Its about coming and moving your body and creating long lean muscles. In our classes we focus on small muscles groups, creating awareness of these areas and how to engage and contract them efficiently to get the best benefit from the class. Its all done to fun upbeat music, boutique class sizes and in a comfortable inviting environment. For the over 50’s (and those who don’t lean towards being ballerina-like) is On Pointe still a good place to head? And what would be the best class to start with? Age is only a number and this workout is for anyone, both male and female. We have a beginner barre class on Saturday mornings 8am which is always a great place to start so you can get a feel for the class and the flow of it. From there you’ll go one of two way - realise you love our little cardio blasts or not! So we have Bootybarre Plus which incorporates cardio blasts to get the heart rate up or we have our flex & flow / Sculpt classes where we have therabands attached to the barre and we use these throughout, ditch the cardio and enjoy a nice long stretch at the end. You don’t have to have been a ballerina in a previous life to come and enjoy the class, we encourage you to take things as hard as you want, we give plenty of modifications and variations so each individual can take the workout to their desired level. Its not about comparing yourself to the the person next to you. Its about you getting the most of your own workout and walking out of the room feeling a little taller, toner and sore in all the right places. Lyndal Woodham - Owner and Instructor

CAN WE let the bath do the running? Research published in the Journal of Temperature found that an hour-long soak in hot water produced similar anti-inflammatory and blood sugar responses as 60 minutes of moderate physical activity. “It seems that activities that increase heat shock proteins may help to improve blood sugar control and offer an alternative to exercise,” lead study author Steve Faulkner from Loughborough University wrote. “These activities -such as soaking in a hot tub or taking a sauna - may have health benefits for people who are unable to exercise regularly.” It’s critical to point out a few limitations of the study. For starters, the experiment only monitored men, so it’s difficult to say if the same effect would happen in women. It also only included 14 volunteers, which is an extremely small sample size. More research

needs to be conducted before scientists can come to any official conclusion. And, of course, you should still continue to exercise regularly. That being said, the study does offer some more promising insight into the healing effects of hot water. The science of hot baths is seemingly only delivering good news!

Why should you get back on your bike as you get older? 1. It’s easy on the joints. When you sit on a bike, you put your weight on a pair of bones in the pelvis called the ischial tuberosities, unlike walking, when you put your weight on your legs. 2. It’s a great aerobic workout. Aerobic exercise also triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s feel-good chemicals— which may make you feel young at heart. 3.You’ll build up muscle. As you get older, you lose muscle mass. Keeping your body fit starts with simply riding your bike often, While your buttocks and legs are the obvious muscles being put to work, you’ll also use abdominal muscles to balance and stay upright and to a smaller degree your arms by holding on. 4. Pedaling builds bone. Resistance activities, such as pushing pedals, pull on the muscles, and then the muscles pull on the bone, which increases bone density. 5. It’s great for your wellbeing. Even half an hour of daily exercise has been observed to improve people’s subjective mood and well-being!

The Christchurch Heart Institute is working alongside the Heart Foundation as part of an innovative approach to cardiovascular disease (CVD) research, following a significant donation of $330,000 from Ryman Healthcare received on the 31 May 2017. The 2016-17 charity partnership between Ryman Healthcare and the Heart Foundation, which has funded the Heart Foundation Clinical Fellowship, will support a clinical research study, looking into the scope and make-up of cardiovascular disease in residents of Ryman Healthcare facilities. Associate Professor, Chris Pemberton, of the Christchurch Heart Institute, based at the University of Otago, Christchurch, is behind the idea to run the study which will provide a clearer picture about the CVD risk in New Zealand’s retirement healthcare sector. “It is exciting to be working with the Heart Foundation, who have informed residents of Ryman Healthcare facilities about the study, laying the foundation for the project to proceed. Ryman residents who volunteer to take part in the study, will benefit from increased awareness of their overall health and any cardiovascular risk. The information we gather at the Christchurch villages and others around the country will be used to raise the standard of cardiovascular care in New Zealand,” he said. The study will begin at Ryman retirement villages in Christchurch, and gradually roll-out across the country, which is something Pemberton is looking forward to. “We want to get going in 2017, firstly putting systems in place, with a view to starting the first of the studies later this year.” The Christchurch Heart Institute, a

University of Otago Research Centre, is renowned globally for their contribution to CVD research. In particular, the discoveries of blood hormones associated with heart disease which have led to specific blood tests for heart issues, now being used routinely in clinics all around the world. “This project is aimed at taking what we know in a hospital setting and applying that knowledge in the primary health sector. Leading to better management of cardiovascular disease, before hospital admission becomes necessary.” Heart Foundation Chief Executive, Tony Duncan, is delighted to have been part of the Ryman Healthcare charity partnership for 2016-17. He believes Ryman’s donation will undoubtedly support many people in the aged care sector who are impacted by heart disease, which is New Zealand’s biggest killer. “Given the high incidences of heart disease in the aged care sector, this will make a significant contribution to the management of heart disease among the aged.” Ryman Managing Director Simon Challies said heart health had been a popular cause. Over the past 12 months the Ryman family has been busy with knitting, barbecues, art shows, raffles and head shaves to raise as much as possible for the Heart Foundation. “We all know what a great job the Heart Foundation does and it has been a popular charity with residents. We’ve had a record year for fundraising with residents and staff participating in a whole lot of fundraisers. They’re big-hearted people – if you’ll excuse the pun – and we are delighted to match their fund-raising dollar-for-dollar. The $330,000 raised is a new record for Ryman.’’

coffee table books to add to your collection what do your coffee table books say about you?

In the Company of Women Available from Collected

Let’s face it: the coffee table book is not just a book; it’s an item designed to showcase a little snapshot in to the owners interests. It’s always intriguing to see what kind of books people put out on their coffee table. Are they arty books or travel based? Do they look like they’ve been well read or are they just there for show? Coffee table books are now often used by interior stylists to instantly transform a surface by adding some pops of colour and a little sophistication to your home. The 1970s cookbook that surrealist painter Salvador Dalí created with his wife Gala is unsurprisingly bonkers, featuring 136 recipes with dreamlike illustrations by the artist, and including a chapter specifically dedicated to aphrodisiacs. In the Company of Women features profiles of a broad cross-section of more than 100 inspiring, creative, successful women – from Rookie editor Tavi Gevinson to Thelma Golden, director and chief curator of New York’s The Studio Museum. Another slightly odd, definitely intriguing choice, Women in Trees is edited by a woman named Jochen Raiss, who has been collecting amateur photographs of women in trees from flea markets for around a quarter of a century. Weird and wonderful, this strangely touching book has captured moments of pure happiness enjoyed by unknown women from the 1920s to the 1950s. The Sharks coffee book would be one to add to the table for pure shock factor, the large scale images taken by Michael Muller literally jump off the pages!

tears we cannot stop: A SERMON TO WHITE AMERICA In his 2016 New York Times op-ed piece “Death in Black and White,” Michael Eric Dyson moved a nation. Now he continues to share his views in Tears We Cannot Stop. Dyson makes it clear to readers that he wants more than guilt, he wants action and change. He wants readers to wake up to “what it means to be black in America”, and actually do something about racism. Like any book dealing with deep issues such as race, this book is sure to ruffle some feathers, make more than a few wince and really anger others. Nothing is sugar coated. At just 228 pages, it’s anything but a quick read.Yes, there’s controversy in Dyson’s views but it will also open a lot of eyes. AN EXCERPT: On the invention of Whiteness: “Beloved, let me start by telling you an ugly secret: there is no such thing as white people. And yet so many of them, so many of you, exist. Please hear me out. I know you’re flesh and blood. I know that you use language and forks and knives. I’m not talking about your bodies or your garages or your grocery stores. I’m talking about the politics of whiteness. I’m talking about an identity that exists apart from the skin you’re born in. I’m talking about a meaning of race that supersedes the features you inherit when you come out of the womb. You don’t get whiteness from your genes. It is a social inheritance that is passed on to you as a member of a particular group. And it’s killing us, and, quiet as it’s kept, it’s killing you too. Race has no meaning outside of the cultures we live in and the worlds we fashion out of its force and energy. Whiteness is an advantage and privilege because you have made it so, not

“One of the most frank and searing discussions on race ... a deeply serious, urgent book, which should take its place in the tradition of Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time and King’s Why We Can’t Wait.” -The New York Times Book Review “Readers will find searing moments in Tears We Cannot Stop, when Dyson’s words proves unforgettable...But more than education, Dyson wants a reckoning.” —The Washington Post “Here’s a sermon that’s as fierce as it is lucid. It shook me up, but in a good way. This is how it works if you’re black in America, this is what happens, and this is how it feels. If you’re black, you’ll feel a spark of recognition in every paragraph. If you’re white, Dyson tells you what you need to know— what this white man needed to know, at least. This is a major achievement. I read it and said amen.” —Stephen King “Impassioned.” —Library Journal because the universe demands it. So I want to tell you right off the bat that whiteness is made up, and that white history disguised as American history is a fantasy, as much a fantasy as white superiority and white purity. Those are all myths. They’re intellectual rubbish, cultural garbage. The quicker you accept that, the better off you’ll be, and so will the rest of us. My friends, I know reading this frightens many of you. It may even anger you. Please bear with me. Until you make whiteness give up its secrets none of us will get very far. Whiteness has privilege and power connected to it, no matter how poor you are. Of course the paradox is that even though whiteness is not real it is still true. I mean true as a force to be reckoned with. It is true because it has the power to make us believe it is real and to punish those who doubt its magic. Whiteness is slick and endlessly inventive. It is most effective when it makes itself invisible, when it appears neutral, human, American.”

THE SPECS PRICE Suzuki Ignis Limited, $22,500 DIMENSIONS Length, 3700mm; width, 1660mm; height, 1595mm CONFIGURATION Four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive, 1242cc, 66kW, 120Nm, continuously variable automatic PERFORMANCE 0-100km/h, 12sec FUEL USAGE 4.9l/100km

SMALL & SPORTY WORDS ROSS KIDDIE

It’s not easy making a small car look stylish. However, Suzuki is the master at it, take their recent models – Celerio, Baleno and just recently, the Ignis, they are all trendy, funky models which relate to a large cross-section of car buyers. The Ignis is brand-spanking new and is dubbed by Suzuki as a small sport utility vehicle. That sums it up well, it has the looks of a SUV, but at just 3700mm it is squat and will appeal to those who like easy entry and exit along with a tallish driving position and, of course, a budget price. The newcomer starts at just $18,990, automatic transmission will add $1510, while the Limited variant, as tested, sits at $22,500, although if you want two-tone paint that’s an additional $490. Interestingly, the Ignis in Limited form is just a four-seater, there are only two seat-belts in the rear and the configuration lends itself

more to adaptable load carrying options. However, there are Isofix child seat tethers for those who have young ones in tow. If you want to seat three across the rear, the entrylevel GLX is a five-seater, albeit it would be tight widthwise for adults. The Ignis is also a car which lends itself to sporty appeal. Sure, it’s not a rocket ship, but with the way it can be dressed and optioned it has specification and features which will make it stand out even more amongst others. Under the bonnet is a 1.2-litre, fourcylinder engine and it is engineered for economy along with respectable power outputs. Suzuki rate it with a 66kW and 120Nm outputs, even though torque peaks tallish in the rev band (4400rpm), the engine works freely thanks to the matching of it to a continuously variable automatic transmission. According to Suzuki’s advertising material,

the Ignis will return a 4.9-litre per 100km (57mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average. In my opinion that would be quite achievable, during evaluation time the trip computer was constantly showing 6.9l/100km (41mpg) with a 5l/100km (56mpg) figure cruising quietly at 100km/h, the engine turning over slowly at just 2000rpm in the tallest part of the gearing. It has taken me a long time to warm to CVT transmissions, but today’s units are so normal, the Ignis works through the gearing much like a traditional automatic. There’s even a sport mode which will hasten engine revolutions should the driver decide a little bit of extra oomph is needed, say for a highway overtake. In terms of performance, that can be achieved in around 7.5sec, while a standstill to 100km/h time of 10.9sec is not to be sneezed at. The engine is a willing worker and charms with its quiet operating manner and lively response – that’s another bonus of CVT, the engine works unimpeded through the transmission. The Ignis sits on a new platform and, although it isn’t sophisticated, it has been designed as a weight-saving structure along with a suspension set-up that will allow for controlled balance when the corners arrive. Even though rear wheel freedom is hampered a little by a torsion beam tube axle, there is just enough movement so that mid-corner bumps and ruts don’t upset body balance nor directional stability.

At almost 1.5m, the Ignis is quite tall, and body movement over softish spring and damper settings is noticeable. However, steerage is unaffected and directional accuracy is quite sharp. I’d like to have a little more steering feel through the wheel, but in this modern age of electric power steering systems most mainstream cars get a light, as opposed to a firm feel. Providing the grip are high quality 16in Bridgestone tyres, even though their footprint is small at 175/60, there is an underlying feeling of grip and control, and for that reason the Ignis feels quite athletic, which considering its simplicity underneath, is commendable. In Limited form the Ignis is comprehensively equipped. All models represent value for price, but there are a few goodies in the Limited which you may not expect in a car for this price such as satellite navigation, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, keyless entry and ignition, cruise control with speed limiter, and digitally controlled air conditioning, just to name some of the major items. It also has a high safety specification. Even though it is marketed as a sport utility vehicle, it must be remembered the Ignis is two-wheel-drive (front) only and it isn’t engineered for life off-road. However, if you are after a car which is just a little out of the ordinary with interesting internal shapes and colours, and an exterior look which is standalone, then the Ignis is the car for you.

GARDENING ADVICE

$80

PRIZE PACK!

with

In March last year I planted Escallonia Apple Blossom shrubs which are growing nicely into a compact and pretty hedge. Recently we’ve been advised that due to the quakes, our sewer pipes will have to be dug up and replaced. This means either having the shrubs trampled or removing them. Can I uproot the shrubs and place them elsewhere, perhaps in tubs while the repairs are carried out, and then replant them? They are just gaining strength and coming away nicely and I’m reluctant to disturb their growth.

37

QUESTION

Today’s winning question came from Sue Barker. Congratulations! Escallonia can be transplanted quite easily compared to many other shrubs. We would suggest cutting back any new growth before transplanting, and carrying out the process during the winter months. The plants can either be placed in large containers or into your veggie garden temporarily. Ensure plants are kept moist throughout the process but do not over water as this can rot young roots. With this species, it is better to be a little drier than over wet.

ANSWER

When you are ready to replant them back into their original spot, add plenty of Daltons Compost to give them the best start and add a layer of mulch on top. After replanting, allow time for the plants to settle (up to two weeks) before applying a side dressing of Daltons Premium Tree & Shrub Fertiliser in spring.

We have a Daltons Premium Rose pack to give away which includes everything you will need to plant and grow healthy roses. Valued at over $80, it contains:

Clever comedy but no side-splitter The Pickle King Produced by Indian Ink Written by Jacob Rajan and Justin Lewis Reviewed by Georgia O’Connor-Harding YOU COULD be easily fooled for thinking The Pickle King is a bit of a tragedy, theming around a girl who believes she is cursed and everyone she loves dies. But with a captivating set, vivacious characters and just a touch of neat choreography, Indian Ink’s original show brought a touch of warmth into the city’s cold wintry night. The show staged at the Isaac Theatre Royal last week, is part of the company’s 20th-anniversary national tour. Covering the themes of love, death and adversity immigrants face when moving to New Zealand, The Pickle King is about a blind receptionist who falls in love with another employee at a run-down hotel in Wellington. At the same time the blind receptionist, who believes she is cursed, falls in love with another employee, a mysterious guest checks into the hotel who she believes is the Grim Reaper. The show was a highly-anticipated comedy, having won an

award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards. It is easy to see why it is award-winning in the way it is professionally executed, but the storyline was not life-changing and it didn’t make me howl with laughter like I thought it would.

It was lovely the show’s original performance 15 years ago had been adapted to feature a love story around two women rather than a man and woman. The same-sex love story between the leading characters Sasha (Kalyani Nagarajan) and Jeena (Vanessa Kumar) was ex-

tremely natural, and was a credit to how far New Zealanders have come to accepting gay relationships. With the company always featuring performers of Indian descent in the show, I loved the way the setting was designedthe walls were covered in

brightly coloured Indian-inspired paintings creating a mystique atmosphere. But you were soon reminded the show was actually set in Wellington, as every time a door or window opened gusty sound effects and the odd flying prop would blast across the stage. A non-speaking pianist is the cherry-on-top to the hotel-esque atmosphere but some of the music played although beautiful, was slightly depressing. But bright costumes with a broad spectrum of masks ranging from covering the actor’s full face to just partially made for a visual treat balancing joy with darkness. Andrew Ford mastered his role of the scary-death-inducing George Reaper, his voice was particularly creepy and one could not help but watch with thrilling fear. But, to be honest, I didn’t get why his character had such a fascination with pickles, which the entire show is supposedly based around. The pickles didn’t seem to have any relevance to the overall storyline. But there is a bit of a twist to the end of the story that makes the death-like George Reaper not what he seems. You will have to catch up with the show to find out.

Flanagan comes back from injury for World University Games MIDDLE DISTANCE runner Rosa Flanagan has qualified for the 5000m at the World University Games in Taiwan in August.

Qualifying for the event has been one of Flanagan’s major goals this year after a bad run of injuries. Last year, she suffered a stress fracture in her tibia, which meant she had to resort to aqua jogging, swimming, biking and cross training while she recovered. She then suffered labral

CBHS TO HOST NELSON Christchurch Boys’ High School will host Nelson College in a top of the table UC Championship clash on Saturday. Both Christchurch Boys’ and Nelson have just one defeat to their name in this campaign. The home side come into the game on the back of a nail-biting 25-23 final minute win over St Andrew’s College. Christchurch Boys’ trailed St Andrew’s by five points with just two minutes remaining. Rico Syme was the hero, coming off the bench to make his first XV debut with 20min remaining and scoring a breakaway try in the dying stages, before Alex Harford’s kick sealed the win.

ADVICE FROM TOPAI-AVEAI Last year’s UC Championship most valuable player Cruz Topai-Aveai returned to Shirley Boys’ High on Tuesday to pass on words of wisdom to the school’s junior rugby players. Topai-Aveai led Shirley BHS to consecutive UC Championship grand-final appearances in 2015 and 2016 before moving to Sydney to join the South Sydney Rabbitohs. After a handful of games for the South Sydney under-20 side he was offered a first grade contract with the Cronulla Sharks. He will return to Sydney later this week and is expected to return from injury for the Sharks under-20 side next month.

Falck tests out European clay

In Brief KNOCKOUT FOOTBALL Both the Chatham Cup and Women’s Knockout Cup fields will be narrowed down in round three this weekend. In the Chatham Cup, Cashmere Technical will host Nomads United on Saturday at Garrick Park, while Coastal Spirit will travel to Nelson Suburbs on Sunday in the other encounter. Just one Canterbury team will remain in the women’s cup with premier league leader Coastal hosting Cashmere on Saturday at Cuthberts Green.

„„ By Gordon Findlater PROMISING YOUNG tennis talent Reece Falck is spending the next eight weeks developing his game on the clay courts of Europe. Falck, 15, is currently in Amsterdam as part of Tennis New Zealand’s targeted athlete programme. He will compete in two grade four junior International Tennis Federation events in the Netherlands, a grade two event in Germany, and another event in Fiji on his way home. The Shirley Boys’ High School student is coached by his father Andrew, who is head coach at the Burwood Park club. Andrew believes the eight weeks of clay court play will benefit his son’s game. “Playing on clay is a great way for young players to develop their game and it’s a surface we don’t have easy access to here,” said Andrew. Falck is the only Canterbury tennis player in the targeted athlete programme. He won the 14 and under national title earlier this year

DEVILS FACE THUNDER Canterbury Red Devils will be hoping home ice can help turn their fortunes around in this year’s New Zealand Ice Hockey League. The Red Devils, last year’s finalists, are currently at the bottom of the table after six games and only one win to their name. They will host the Dunedin Thunder in two games this weekend, with the first on Saturday and another on Sunday. The Thunder also have only one win this season. However, they defeated the Red Devils 6-3 and 5-4 in two pre-season games.

Warriors name Foran for Bulldogs clash WARRIORS COACH Stephen Kearney will give five-eighth Kieran Foran until the last minute to prove his fitness ahead of tomorrow’s game against the Bulldogs at Mt Smart Stadium. Foran hurt his quad muscle in the side’s win over the Titans 11 days ago and is showing signs of improvement. The extra rest thanks to last weekend’s bye has helped him have a chance of be-

ing fit to face the side he will play for in 2018. Kearney has named the Kiwis international in the No 6 jumper in a side that has a familiar look to it. The one glaring omission is centre Solomone Kata, who is unavailable for the game due to the death of his brother back in Tonga. “Sol has had a tragic event

happen – his brother has passed away in Tonga,” Kearney told Radio Sport. “He will be flying out late tonight to attend his brother’s funeral,” Kearney said. “He was only a young guy and it was a tragic event – the club’s best wishes and thoughts are with Sol and his family.” Rookie Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad comes onto the wing with

David Fusitua moving into the centres to replace Kata. Kearney refused the temptation to include the club’s all-time leading try-scorer Manu Vatuvei, who is working his way back from injury. Vatuvei has been included on an extended bench. Also named on an extended bench is prop James Gavet, who missed the game against the Titans with a hamstring strain, and

Ata Hingano, who came on to replace Foran when the five-eighth got injured. The Warriors have confirmed they will not be bringing in a replacement for the nowdeparted assistant coach Steve McNamara, who this week took up the vacant head coaching job at the Catalan Dragons in the United Kingdom’s Super League.

It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2017 KenKen Puzzle LLC. All rights reserved

Outstanding fuel economy in Outlander „„ By Ross Kiddie WHEN Mitsubishi launched its popular Outlander sport utility vehicle in hybrid form, it was almost deemed revolutionary. That was in 2014, and since then the PHEV (plugin electric vehicle) has sold well in New Zealand – globally too for that matter – and is about to become even more appealing for it has just had a fairly hefty makeover. The concept, shape and ease of use hasn’t changed one bit, but the new Outlander PHEV is fitted out with a lot of new kit, most of it is electronic thereby enhancing the infotainment and communication systems, along with the inclusion of an ultra fast charge mechanism, higher priority for electric operation-only and the inclusion of advanced safety protocols. Column space doesn’t allow comprehensive detailing of the new features but I can say the Outlander in this form is engineered with a greater emphasis towards propulsion through the electric motors. For that matter, the new fast charge connection will fit well with a comprehensive project nationwide to install fast charge stations. Of course, the PHEV can also be charged through a household supply using a separate connection. However, there’s more to PHEV than just plugging in, charging and then driving off, the hybrid system is true hybrid. Under the bonnet sits a four-cylinder, 2-litre engine which is rated at 88kW. It’s there to charge the batteries when they run low, as well as providing drive if there is no charge available. On the subject of drive, the PHEV is true to the Outlander concept, it gets four-wheeldrive courtesy of a second electric motor at the rear. Amidst the complexity of the hybrid system the

REAA - Disclosure rules when selling a home

We have sold over 100 “As is Where is” homes and we have a huge database of qualified buyers.

Real estate advertisements are designed to make every property look like a dream buy. That’s why they gloss over the negative aspects and linger on the good points, wanting you to be drawn in by the sun-drenched location rather than be put off by lack of garaging. It’s no crime to gloss over a property’s quirks, but lying by omission or design about more serious matters is not allowed. If you do this when selling your property you may be at risk of being sued by the purchaser. When you’re ready to sell your property it’s a good idea to get legal advice about your obligations before you sign an agency agreement. Most of these agreements, which set out the terms and conditions of your contract with the real estate agent, require you to confirm that you are unaware of any undisclosed defects in the property and that you haven’t withheld any information about it. As a seller, you must also confirm that your property has all the necessary consents and code compliance certificates for any building work. Any outstanding consents, including ones that involve any works at a neighbour’s property, should be disclosed to the agent. This is important for several reasons. Licensed real estate agents have clear obligations when it comes to disclosure. They must not mislead a seller or a potential buyer, or withhold any information. While it’s not up to the agent to uncover any hidden defects in a property, they must tell any prospective buyers what they know. Under the Real Estate Agents Act 2008, if licensed real estate agents suspect that a property may have a defect then they are obliged to ask the seller about it, or advise potential buyers of any risks. For example, if a property is next door to a proposed new development, or if it’s in an area that’s been subject to flooding, the agent must tell prospective buyers rather than turning a blind eye. If your property may be prone to weathertightness issues thanks to its age or cladding, then the agent may have to disclose this potential risk to

prospective buyers. If it doesn’t have any weathertightness problems it may be worth getting this confirmed in an expert report by a qualified building inspector who has professional indemnity insurance, understands the strict legal requirements of their role and carries out their work in accordance with the New Zealand Property Inspection Standard. This will help make the sale process as efficient as possible.

Licensed (REAA 2008) Results Realty Ltd

www.firsthomes.nz chchsales@firsthomes.nz 3 Bed, 2 Bathroom Double Garage $285,000

If you know there are issues with the property, whether it’s something small like a garage door not working properly, or a bigger deal like an unconsented deck, it’s best to discuss them with the agent you are working with. They can help you decide how to manage the problem, whether that means fixing it, or disclosing it to potential buyers. However, a licensed real estate agent must not disclose any problems with your property to buyers without getting your consent first. If a seller doesn’t agree on a disclosure, the agent is required to stop working for them rather than disclose any defects without consent. These rules offer more protection to buyers than the traditional attitude of ‘caveat emptor’ (buyer beware), which assumed that the seller would always know more than the buyer and any sale was at the buyer’s risk. However, buyers should always do their own research about a property before signing a sale and purchase agreement. Buyers should also ask the agent about anything they are concerned about, no matter how trivial it may seem. It’s far better to get an answer upfront than find out when it’s too late.
