Probe into hospital work reveals fire safety issues „„ By Gabrielle Stuart AN INVESTIGATION has found potential issues with fire protection walls and floors in Canterbury District Health Board hospitals. As part of its earthquake repair work, the CDHB has investigated its passive fire protection walls and floors, which are designed to keep a fire from spreading. CDHB acting chief executive Mary Gordon said the investigation found “a number of potential compliance issues.” The CDHB wouldn’t say what the specific issues were or what buildings were affected. But CDHB board member Aaron Keown said the problems were mostly around holes drilled through the firewalls or floors to fit new services, like gas pipes and IT system wiring. The cost of the repair was currently unknown, but was likely to be “quite massive,” he said. Fire Service specialist investigator Mark Thomas said that would be a particular concern in a hospital, because in a fire patients would be moved to another part of the building, rather than evacuated outside. If there was even a small hole in a firewall, they could be at risk, he said. •Turn to page 3

Thursday July 6 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THEY SAY a picture is worth a thousand words. Our page 1 photo today is simply that. Another Martin Hunter (the photographer) special. He captures Maree Smolenski and her son Jonty perfectly. Jonty is five and has a very rare recessive genetic disorder called trichothiodystrophy. If he gets sick even from a common cold he could die. It’s that serious. When he was a baby, hospital was his second home. On pages 6-7 today, we detail Jonty’s journey and a very grateful family who are having a fundraiser to give something back to the organisations which have helped them with their son’s mountainous medical hurdles. That’s pretty special. And if you’re wondering what ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ means, here it is: It refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image or that an image of a subject conveys its meaning or essence more effectively than a description does. – Barry Clarke

At a Glance THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

SMILE UNTIL IT HURTS

This week in history saw the formation of the New Zealand Boxing Assn on July 4, 1902. On the same date in 1977, hundreds of people were evacuated as serious flooding affected the city. On July 6, 1887, heavy floods inundated the city, three young men drowned in the Avon River as a result of a boating mishap. On July 7, 1908, widespread flooding affected the province. On the same day in 1986, heavy rain flooded the northern suburbs. On July 8, 1880, the Canterbury Society of Arts was formed. On July 9, 1863, civic tree planting began. Part of the day’s planting was a commemorative tree, generally regarded as the beginning of the Botanic Gardens.

A campaign to get strangers smiling at each other could be on the cards for Papanui. Papanui-Innes Community Board members have suggested it explore a “smile campaign” for the area. It is looking at including local school students as photographers, designers, videographers to run posts on its Facebook page. The idea was inspired by the campaign successfully run by the Ashburton District Council last year. The board would consider costs and how to implement it.

News Cathedral letter ‘wishy-washy’ „„ By Bridget Rutherford WINSTON PETERS has refused to sign a letter supporting the restoration deal for the Christ Church Cathedral. Leaders of National, Labour, Act, Green, Maori and United Future signed a letter to Bishop Victoria Matthews on Tuesday saying the offer represented a clear and agreed way forward. “We agree in principle to support legislation that will enable the reinstatement of the Christ Church Cathedral should the synod vote in its favour, to be commenced once a new Government has formed,” it said. But the New Zealand First leader said he did not sign because it was “wishy-washy.” “We agree in principle. What does that mean?” said Mr Peters. “You’re either going to do it or you’re not going to do it.” Mr Peters said he was in favour of the restoration of the Cathedral, but the Government should be offering more money. “It’s not just a building, it’s something far more important.” Mr Peters visited Christch-

urch in May calling for the restoration of the Cathedral, and slated the Anglican Church for not acting sooner. On Tuesday, Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner and Mayor Lianne Dalziel tabled a new restoration deal for the Anglican Church to consider. The new offer included a $10 million pledge from the city council – subject to consultation – with a Government pledge of $10 million, and a $15 million loan that would not need to be paid back if restoration was done within budget, and in a reasonable time. The deal also involved setting up an independent

Fundraising Trust, new legislation to streamline project consenting and approval processes, and a joint venture between the Church Property Trustees and the trust to govern and manage the restoration project. The Great Christchurch Buildings Trust would also pledge $13.7 million. The offer will be considered by the

diocese’s synod – a governing body made up of more than 200 parishioners and priests – before it votes on the Cathedral’s future on September 9. Labour MP and Christchurch issues spokeswoman Megan Woods said the letter signalled if there was a change in Government in the September 23 election, the offer still stood. Green MP Eugenie Sage said it gave certainty to the synod. “I think the offer is a really good one. I hope the synod will look on it favourably.” •Nicky Wagner, p26

Probe reveals hospital fire safety issues •From page 1 Said Mr Thomas: “You don’t take a sick person and put them outside at three in the morning, so in a fire they initially do a horizontal evacuation, past smoke and fire stop doors. So if they’ve gone past it, to what they perceive is safety, but the wall is compromised, it is possible it (the fire) could come past to where they are,” he said. Fire Fighting Pacific Canterbury service manager Charlie Loughnan said he believed working firewalls could have prevented the fire in London’s Grenfell Tower last month from spreading.

“My opinion is that the cladding burnt the building down, but didn’t kill anyone. It was the lack of fire separations inside the building which was the cause of the deaths: The fire getting from the apartment into the lobby, from the lobby into a stairwell,

then blocking the stairwell.” He said a lack of firewalls was also what allowed the 1947 Ballantynes fire to spread so fast, killing 41 people. He said world-leading regulations around firewalls were brought in after the tragedy, but

they depended on the firewalls not being compromised. Ms Gordon said work was being done to investigate and rectify the issues. She said all hospital buildings had fire detection and suppression systems, and the safety of staff, patients and visitors was her top priority. “We don’t have any immediate concerns,” she said. She said the work was a “proactive investigation done on our own initiative,” not a requirement. She said the Ministry of Health was aware of the work, and was “reviewing the systems” as part of its planning process.

In Brief CTV SITE PLAN Families and friends of those killed in the CTV building collapse will be shown a final design of how the site will be landscaped next month. An Otakaro spokesman said the area would be a “peaceful place” made up of grass, greenery and seating. The CTV building, on the corner of Madras and Cashel Sts, collapsed in the February 22, 2011, earthquake, killing 115 people. A survey of the site and ground conditions would be done in the next few weeks to see what plants are best suited. BUSINESS LEADER RESIGNS Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce chief executive Peter Townsend has resigned after 21 years in the role. His final day will be on November 30. Mr Townsend said he would have stood down earlier, had it not been for the September 4, 2010, and February 22, 2011, earthquakes, which were the most challenging years of his career. Mr Townsend still serves on a number of boards, including Otakaro. $18K ON RED ZONE SIGNS More than $18,000 has been spent on manufacturing and installing new street signs in the residential red zone. The city council, in conjunction with the Avon Otakaro Network, installed 94 street signs and 26 wayfinding signs using special brackets so they can’t be removed without a special tool. Many of the original signs were taken by people as souvenirs. NEW COURT SECURITY The new Justice and Emergency Services Precinct will have permanent security screening stations for all visitors to the courts. Ministry of Justice health, safety and security general manager Melissa Gill said an operational security working group had been formed to develop consistent and appropriate security measures across the whole facility.

News Elderly man fights with attacker

„„ By Andrew King THE ELDERLY man who was robbed in broad daylight at a Bryndwr ATM on Monday tried to fight off his attacker. The victim, in his 80s, was withdrawing a sum of money from a machine at the intersection of Wairakei and Greers Rds at about 11am. The offender, described as a Maori or Pacific Islander man in his 30s to 40s, solid build, of average height and a short beard, wearing a beanie, a black puffer jacket, dark-coloured long pants and white sneakers, approached him from behind. He hovered over his shoulder at the ATM until the man had the money in his hand, that’s when he went for it. A short struggle ensued and the offender then fled in a vehicle, believed to be a white station wagon, similar to a Subaru Impreza, and travelled along Wairakei Rd, east, towards the city. The victim was not injured, but understandably shaken up, a police spokeswoman said.

Asthma claims coach’s son

„„ By Bridget Rutherford THE nine-year-old son of former Canterbury Rugby Union coach educator Wayne Marsters has died suddenly in China. Taylor Marsters passed away on June 26 after suffering an asthma attack while playing with his friends at his school, Wellington College International Shanghai. His funeral will be held on Monday at Christ the King Catholic Church, Burnside. Family spokesman Wayne Stack said Taylor lived in Shanghai with his mother Michelle Kolossy, where she taught at the school he attended. But he spent a lot of his time in Christchurch with his father in school holidays while he was working for the Canterbury Rugby Union, he said. “He considered New Zealand home, he would come home for all his holidays. Christchurch was always his base.” Mr Stack said Taylor had a history of asthma, but nothing that bad. Mr Marsters, originally from Westport, is now based in Wellington working for the New Zealand Rugby Union as a coach

development manager for the central region. On Monday, Taylor was meant to come on holiday to Wellington. But he died a week before the trip. He was planning on moving permanently to live in Wellington with his father at the end of the year, Mr Stack said. “It’s a tragic situation.” Mr Stack said Taylor was a great rugby and football player, and was also a very good poet. “He was a happy little fella. He was quite mature for his age as he had been around the world a bit.” He was a Crusaders and All Blacks fan and was always going along to work with his dad to rugby trainings, Mr Stack said. Mr Marsters met Ms Kolossy when he was working as coach and rugby manager at United Arab Emirates Rugby Federation. She was working in Dubai as a teacher and played rugby for the United Arab Emirates women’s team. Mr Marsters moved to Christchurch in 2014 before moving to Wellington. Mr Stack said Taylor’s family was “absolutely devastated,” but grateful for all the support they had received.

SUDDEN DEATH: Taylor Marsters was a “happy little fella” who was a talented rugby and football player. Inset – Wayne Marsters.

Lions boost for terror victim „„ By Timothy Brown A FRIEND of the Christchurch man stabbed in the London terror attack has gone to extraordinary lengths to bring him some comfort. Oliver Dowling and his French girlfriend, Marie Bondeville, were among victims of the Borough Market terrorist attack in London on June 3, in which eight people were killed and 48 others injured. Mr Dowling met William McKee while at high school in Christchurch. Mr McKee, of Dunedin, said he was shocked to hear of Mr Dowling’s injuries – which included multiple stab wounds – and hatched a plan to show him how much he meant to those on the other side of the world. Knowing Mr Dowling supported the Scottish rugby team and that three Scottish players would be visiting Dunedin on June 11 with the British and Irish Lions, he took his video camera to Dunedin Airport to see if they would send a message to his injured friend. Scottish captain Greig Laidlaw was among the first to step off

the plane and was more than willing to help. He was also able to rope injured fullback Stuart Hogg into sending Mr Dowling a message of support. The Otago rugby team also got in on the act, as did Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull and Prime Minister Bill English.

Mr Dowling attended the University of Otago in 2003, prompting Mr Cull to describe him as an “asset” to the city in the mayor’s message of support. “The whole thing has come about because you feel a bit useless over here and you want him to know he’s supported,” Mr McKee said.

“When you are so far away from these tragic events you want to do something . . . these sort of things affect everyone and shock us equally. “You want to try and offer your support. I thought he’s going to have a long road to recovery, as is his girlfriend, so why not try and put a smile on his face and let him know that everyone is thinking of him way over here?” Mr Dowling and Miss Bondeville were out in London having dinner at the time the attacks unfolded, Mr McKee said. “What a horrific experience to go through.” Both required surgery for their wounds and were slowly recovering physically. The video had come as a huge morale boost to Mr Dowling. “He’s got personally in contact a couple of times and said ‘thank you very much’. His sister saw it . . . she was thrilled. He messaged and said ‘thanks very much’. He was chuffed, but probably a little embarrassed,” Mr McKee said. Those involved in the video were more than willing to help, which was heartening, he said. – Otago Daily Times

Lancaster still able to pull in the crowds „„ By Bridget Rutherford EVERYONE WANTS a piece of Lancaster Park. The city council put the call out last month to see if there were any groups that wanted to register their interest for items salvaged from the earthquakedamaged stadium. Project director Lee Butcher said there had been interest from across the country – from Ashburton to Waiheke Island. He said there were requests for 20,000 seats. “In addition, there’s been requests for coolers, tables, toilets, doors, signage and other sporting memorabilia.” Mr Butcher said the interest had come from a wide range of clubs and individuals, from scout and motor speedway clubs, to farmers in South Canterbury. “We are currently reviewing all the submissions, and will continue to keep people informed of progress and the next steps.”

One of a kind battler’s parents give Family organises thank you for helping little Jonty „„ By Gabrielle Stuart JONTY WAS just 10-weeks-old when his parents had to watch him being prepared for surgery for the first time. That was five years ago, and Sam and Maree Smolenski have since become very familiar with the hospital. For the first 96 days of his life, Jonty was kept in neonatal intensive care. He had problems seeing, hearing and eating, and seemed to be hit far harder by colds and flus than other children. Yet the doctors could not understand what was causing Jonty’s problems – and it was three years before they had an answer, Mrs Smolenski said. That came almost by chance, she said. Jonty has trichothiodystrophy

it came with bad news – it was untreatable, and many children with the condition died young, she said. “It was quite a shock. We don’t know how long we’ll have with Jonty. Every winter there’s a risk he might get an illness he doesn’t recover from,” she said. Spending so much time in hospital away from their two other children, Lachie, 7, and Ruby, 3, made it harder, she said. But that was when the community rallied. Mr Smolenski is a harness racing trainer and driver, and comes from a racing family – his grandfather was driving and training legend Jack Smolenski. The racing community rallied last year to raise more than $75,000 for the family, with even world driving champion Dexter Dunn wearing special racing colours in Jonty’s honour as a fundraiser. That meant the whole family could go to international conferences in the United States last year and again this year to meet with specialists and with other people who have the condition, Mrs Smolenski said.

DETECTIVES are investigating whether an alleged attack on a police officer at his home was a case of mistaken identity or something more sinister. Two men and a woman were arrested on Monday night and appeared in the district court on Tuesday after the incident in Charteris Bay. It’s alleged Ngarie Maree Sadlier, 38, approached the property impersonating a police officer at 10.28pm while Norton Lindsay Adams, 26, and Matthew Winara Webber, 28, waited outside. When the officer came outside to see what was going on he placed Sadlier under arrest for trespassing. A scuffle then ensued, with Adams and Sadlier allegedly attacking him. They escaped in a vehicle driven by Adams, but were arrested a short time later. A shotgun was found concealed in a guitar case in the boot – ammunition had allegedly been thrown from the vehicle during the chase. Police have alleged all three

have gang affiliations. Police have not ruled out the attack could be targeted and have launched an investigation, Canterbury Metro Commander Superintendent Lane Todd said. He confirmed to The Star they are exploring the gang angle and if it was mistaken identity or a targeted attack. District Commander Superintendent John Price said he hoped it was random rather than targeted. “I have spoken to the officer involved and he is obviously shaken up,” he said. Adams was remanded in custody charged with failure to stop, reckless driving, aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a firearm. Sadlier, whose occupation is listed as a scientist, was released on bail charged with aggravated assault, trespass, escapes custody, impersonating police, and unlawful possession of a firearm. Webber, a construction worker, was charged with wilful damage and unlawful possession of a firearm. All three will reappear on July 25 in the district court.

News Fundraiser pays for vet bills „„ By Gabrielle Stuart AFTER BEING attacked by a knife-wielding man in her home two years ago, Pip Clark felt she had seen the worst of humanity. But last week, she said she saw the best. People have donated more than $6500 to help pay her vet bills for her five-year-old standard poodle, Charlie, who needed an expensive operation on his intestines. Ms Clark credited Charlie for saving her life when she was attacked by the intruder two years ago. She was getting ready for work in November, 2015, when she came across the intruder. He started punching her, then went at her with a knife, slicing her forearm, she said. That was when Charlie arrived and ran at the attacker, scaring him off. Police were called, but the man has not been found. Ms Clark said Charlie was her hero, not only during the attack but in the months afterward when she felt unsafe at home. Last month, Charlie became very sick. The vet found his intestines were blocked, and he

part-time herself because of her own medical problems, so she was struggling financially.

But after an article in The Star last week, she said donations had poured in – just one day after it ran she said she had more than enough to pay for the operation, and she asked Givealittle to close the page. “Some people donated $500, which shocked me, and others said I don’t have much but here’s $10. I know that’s a huge deal when you don’t have much,” she said. She said all the care and well-wishes from strangers had meant a lot. “I was so stressed and so overwhelmed by it all, and this, all the donations and the messages, has meant such a lot,” she said. “In my life I’ve seen mostly the worst of humanity, unfortunately, so this has restored my faith, I suppose.” She said Charlie had to go back to the vet several times after the operation because of complications, but he was now recovering. “I thought he was going to die three times, and after going through that I’m so exhausted but I’m so thankful. I don’t know what I would have done without him,” she said.

Dirty tunnel cops criticism „„ By Caitlin Miles THE CLEANLINESS of the Lyttelton Tunnel is in the spotlight. Lyttelton Community Association chairman Ken Maynard said the state of the tunnel has “been a problem for a while.” “There are black streaks down the walls. It needs a general spring clean,” Mr Maynard said. New Zealand Transport Agency is in charge of the tunnel’s maintenance ­– it receives about one complaint every month. NZTA maintenance contract manager Barry Stratton said since the February 22, 2011, earthquake things had got worse. “There are a number of reasons why the tunnel is currently, and since the earthquakes, a much dirtier environment than it used to be,” Mr Stratton said. After the tunnel was reopened following the earthquake, up to eight tonnes of dirt and dust was cleared every month. As a result, last year NZTA made the Covered Loads bylaw to stop loose material flying off trucks and settling in the tunnel. Since then the most recent dust count has more than halved. The tunnel walls are washed every three weeks, but Mr Maynard said it needs to be done more often.

Sideline abuse is a problem in New Zealand, but in the Solomon Islands it can escalate into attempted murder – as a Christchurch policeman found out first-hand. Nicholas Jones reports

RISK: New Zealand cop Darren Folau has been in the Solomon Islands as part of the Ramsi operation. PHOTO: NICHOLAS JONES

DETECTIVE Sergeant Darren Folau has been in the Solomons for various stretches since 2002. He saw first-hand the lawlessness and violence that took the country to the brink and saw an Australian-led peacekeeping effort that finished last week after 14 years. Detective Sergeant Folau’s closest scrape came not when on patrol, but at a weekend rugby game. Like other Kiwi police officers working in the country, he’s helped build up the sport, particularly

by mentoring referees. That’s what he was doing at a game between two village-based teams during the height of the often deadly conflict between ethnic groups, known as “the tensions”. “Somebody knocked the ref out for awarding a dodgy try, the ref was a wantok [kin member] of the other team, so they started chasing this player around the field. It was like the Benny Hill Show, really – people chasing each other with bush knives and

machetes.” Detective Sergeant Folau went to the referee’s aid when he heard a pop. “And I looked up and there was bloke from less than 5m shooting at us with a .45 pistol. I heard the pops go past my ears. It was a former policeman who was a militant. “He wasn’t a good shot, that’s for sure, otherwise I wouldn’t be here telling the story. That’s the volatility – it can just escalate within seconds.”

peace and rugby through Solomons

Said Detective Sergeant Folau: “He wasn’t a good shot, that’s for sure, otherwise I wouldn’t be here telling the story. That’s the volatility – it can just escalate within seconds.” The Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands cost New Zealand $150 million, with more than 1000 Defence Force personnel and 800 police serving over the 14 years. Australia led Ramsi at a cost of almost $3 billion, answering the plea for help from the Solomons Government in 2003. Detective Sergeant Folau’s work included a leading role in the operation against warlord Harold Keke, who was jailed for life for murdering a Cabinet minister in the first of the socalled tension trials. He said the change over Ramsi’s 14 years had been dramatic. “When we first got here it was complete lawlessness, it was ruled by gun. The police were corrupt and they were ruling by gun. The infrastructure had fallen over, the government had collapsed with finances, the hospital was almost non-existent. “Now infrastructure is really good, the Government finances

Kiwi cops in the Solomon Islands •The Solomon Islands was on the brink of collapse during civil and ethnic conflict between 1998 and 2003 that saw more than 100 people killed and around 40,000 driven from their homes. •After the Solomons Government asked for help, the Ramsi was established and an initial force of about 2200 military and police officers, primarily from Australia and New Zealand along with representatives from several Pacific Island states, restored security. •The last NZDF platoon left in November 2012. Last week marked the official end of Ramsi, and most of the 16 Kiwi police officers in the country flew home.

are being tracked really well and the police force in particular it is two-thirds new police force from 2002.” In spite of that widelyacknowledged success, there is significant unease locally about whether security can be maintained once the foreign police leave. Corruption is widespread,

thousands of illegal firearms have not been surrendered in official amnesties, and tensions over land remain. During her three-day visit recently, Deputy Prime Minister Paula Bennett signed an agreement that will keep eight New Zealand Police advisers in the country. Folau will return to polic-

ing in Christchurch at the end of the year after helping with the changeover. He wanted to acknowledge the six Ramsi personnel who lost their lives, and the countless Solomon Island victims of the ethnic violence. An unusual number of Crusaders supporters around Honiara will be just part of Folau’s legacy here. “They are just amazing people. I put my hand on my heart and say that I get more co-operation and genuine support and thanks and good mornings than I would back in New Zealand,” Detective Sergeant Folau said of the experience. •Preventing crime, pgs 18-19

Cup to honour football great FOOTBALL great Steve Sumner will be remembered at the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018, with teams to play for a trophy in his name. The inaugural Steve Sumner Cup will be unveiled at the week-long Golden Oldies World Football Festival, as part of the overall event that will run throughout April. Golden Oldies Football manager for the event and former All Whites captain, Earle Thomas, said it was a privilege to be the first event to honour Sumner’s contribution to football. “We are extremely grateful to Steve’s family for allowing us to name the cup for the first division competition at Golden Oldies World Football Festival in his honour.” Sumner captained the All Whites to their first ever world cup finals appearance in Spain in 1982, and was synonymous with Christchurch United in the 1970s and 80s. He died in February after a long battle with prostate cancer. “The Sumner family want to keep Steve’s legacy alive and are happy for the Golden Oldies event to name the cup in his

Mr Thomas said the cup would be contested at the biennial Golden Oldies World Football Festival and at a local tournament in Christchurch in alternate years. The Golden Oldies World Football Festival will be played from April 15-22 at Hagley Park. It is one of 10 sports – rugby, hockey, netball, basketball, cricket, squash, golf, lawns bowls and football – which make up

The event, which is expected to bring about 10,000 people to the city, would combine 10 sports over April. Event director Peter McDermott said they were calling for volunteers to help run the event and boost the visitor experience for both national and international guests. Roles will include umpiring, refereeing, scoring, or setting up equipment, among others. Volunteers must be over 18, available for a minimum of three shifts in April, able to attend three training sessions, subject to police vetting and be able to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.

Toby’s trunk load of memories „„ By Gabrielle Stuart

Firefighter’s helmet found EXCAVATORS demolishing a Canterbury District Health Board building have made a strange discovery – an 80-year-old firefighter’s helmet. The helmet was discovered encased in mud below the former sexual health clinic on St Asaph St, which is earmarked to be the site of the new energy centre. It was spotted by excavators who were digging out the fill at the bottom of the lift shaft. The helmet is made from layers of cork, covered with cotton canvas and painted. Fire helmet expert Andy Turnham told the CDHB the find was an old Cromwell 2240 Telbon fire helmet made by Helmets Ltd of Wheathampstead, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom. He said the lining dates it between 1934 and 1948 and it could have been an officer’s helmet, but was not valuable, he said.

THANKS TO the generosity of the community, 10-year-old Toby Matthews has had his dream trip to Africa – and he may get a ride in a firetruck and a chance to see a tiger, too. Toby is deaf and learned last year he is also going blind, because of an incurable genetic condition. After Toby’s story was published in The Star, more than $16,000 was donated online to help his family give him experiences before he loses his vision. It meant he was able to travel to Africa last month with his father, builder Logan Matthews, where they helped to build a school in Zimbabwe. Mr Matthews said Toby had loved the animals most of all. “We saw an elephant riding expert on the side of the road, and I knew that was us. So he rode an elephant for an hour, and then he got to interact and play with it. I think that was his highlight,” he said. He said the goal of the trip was both to give Toby visual experiences he could remember, and to help other people. As well as building classrooms at the school, he said they built

shelves for the children’s books, which had previously had to sit on the ground, and brought a lot of school supplies with them. Because Toby’s condition, Usher syndrome, is so rare, he said the family did not know how long Toby’s vision might last. He was born deaf, but his vision was slowly tunnelling, with the area he could see growing progressively smaller, and there was no known way to reverse it. He said the family planned to head to Auckland next month for thorough testing to see how it was progressing. Mr Matthews said Toby had

It was a real morale boost,” he said. And Toby has had more dreams made possible since he returned.

China Gives New Shine to BRICS of Gold On June 19, 2017, Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the five BRICS countries met in Beijing. And with just 100 days until the Ninth BRICS Summit in China in September, the world is keen to know if the summit can put a new shine on emerging markets amid a sluggish global economic recovery and setbacks in globalization.

And the inclusion of South Africa gave the group more political weight when speaking up for the emerging world on the international stage. With its five major members hailing from different continents, BRICS has a very significant voice for inclusive and multi-polar development. Joint Efforts to Tackle Challenges The past decade was not without challenges for the five nations. Economic slowdown, rising trade protectionism and a volatile international security situation were common problems facing the whole world, but the BRICS countries have shown remarkable resilience with its abundant resources, vast markets, huge growth potential and enhanced cooperation.

Under the theme “BRICS: Stronger Partnership for a Brighter Future”, the summit will gather leaders from countries representing 40 percent of the world population and 25 percent of global GDP. Formation of “BRICS” Coined by former Goldman Sachs economist Jim O’Neill in 2001, the term “BRIC” refers to Brazil, Russia, India and China, four emerging markets with fast growth and great potential. In 2006, foreign ministers from those countries met in New York, formally starting the BRIC grouping. South Africa joined the group in 2010, the acronym changing to BRICS.

It is fair to say that China has always pinned high hopes on BRICS for emerging markets with which it finds natural common ground. While the English acronym is catchy, the Chinese translation -- four characters that bear the literal meaning “gold bricks countries” -- conveys confidence in the future. That sense of confidence is backed by concrete growth. And it has truly been a “golden decade.”

Economic growth marks one of the key merits of the group. Originating at the height of the global financial crisis, the group has managed to exceed even the bullish expectations of O’Neill. Together, the five countries have contributed to more than half of global growth in the past ten years, and their share in global GDP increased from about 12 percent to 23 percent. According to the International Monetary Fund, the BRICS and other developing countries were responsible for 80 percent of global growth in 2016.

Economic cooperation has been a major theme of BRICS development. To help finance infrastructure and sustainable development projects in BRICS and other emerging economies and developing countries, China co-founded the BRICS New Development Bank (NDB) in 2014 with its headquarters in Shanghai.

Fully operational in 2016, the bank approved loans involving financial assistance of over 1.5 billion U.S. dollars for projects in green and renewable energy, and transport that year. The newly established institutions will increasingly serve as a bridge between developing and developed countries, becoming instrumental in pushing global economic growth, and more importantly furthering SouthSouth cooperation at various levels. As an important manifestation of multiplicity and multilateralism in the age of global interdependence, the BRICS and its New Development Bank represent the aspirations of the largest developing economies to have their due seats at the table of international systems of governance.

All parties agreed that the BRICS countries should push forward the unity and cooperation between emerging market economies, safeguard and enhance the overall interests and welfares of the vast developing countries, continuously commit to maintaining international fairness and justice and promoting world peace and stability, maintain the UN’s core role in international affairs, advance the political settlement of hotspot issues, jointly cope with global challenges, and make efforts to establish a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation. While meeting with the five Foreign Ministers, Chinese President Xi Jinping stressed that BRICS members have grasped the development as mainline, which not only benefits the people in the five countries but also offers a recipe for the world to address food and security problems. All heads of delegations expressed gratitude to China for the great efforts in promoting BRICS cooperation as the BRICS rotating presidency. Expansion for Broader Cooperation Building on the success of the past ten years, the BRICS now eyes starting a new decade with a more expansive partnership to seek inclusive growth. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that China would explore a BRICS expansion, known as “BRICS Plus”, and build a wider partnership with other major developing countries and organizations, so as to turn BRICS into the most-influential platform for SouthSouth cooperation in the world. Meanwhile, China does not only aim for development within BRICS, but for all nations, with its Belt and Road Initiative. The initiative seeks to link the developing countries with the developed ones, the East and the West, so it can become one of the key chains in terms of megaprojects linking the North, South, West and East. In line with progress on the Belt and Road Initiative, BRICS countries have much potential for cooperation in infrastructure, trade and investment, and financial markets.

Consolidated Consensus among BRICS Members During the Foreign Ministers meeting on June 19, they reviewed the outcomes and experience gained from the cooperation in the past decade, and conducted in-depth discussion on the further development of BRICS cooperation, current international situation and hotspot issues. So far, the Belt and Road Initiative has received a warm welcome from BRICS countries. With such inclusive platforms as the Belt and Road and NDB, China will no doubt help add glitter to the BRICS of gold. With growing global uncertainties, the next decade might not be a smooth journey but the BRICS countries will sail through and even enlighten the rest of the world as long as they can stick to a strong and expansive partnership.

Making medication process safer Vests a way to avoid interruptions and prevent mistakes at hospital

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart FOR MOST people, distractions and interruptions while they’re working are inevitable – but for nurses handling medications, being distracted at the wrong time could prove deadly for their patients. Canterbury District Health Board staff are holding a series of workshops and studies looking at hospital medication processes, and things that cause problems or lead to mistakes. They plan to use what they learn in the rebuild and redesign of hospital buildings in Christchurch, in an effort to make them safer and run more effectively. CDHB projects nurse coordinator Yvonne Williams said distractions and interruptions were one of the biggest problems nurses had pointed out in the workshops last month. An Australian study found nurses preparing or administering medication were about 12 per cent more likely to make a mistake if they were interrupted during the process – and after multiple interruptions, the risk of making a major error doubled.

“Our nurses doing medications get interrupted a lot, and we know every interruption can lead to an error,” Ms Willams said. “So we’re looking at ways we can work with staff to make things better for them and safer, and reduce the number of errors that occur,” she said. She said some of the suggestions being looked at were simple, like “do not disturb” vests that nurses could wear while working with medicines, or making sure all equipment needed was stored in the same place. Others involved the design of the new wards, around where medication rooms were placed and how they were laid out. The new electronic systems being rolled out throughout the hospital could help in some ways – like sending alarms and alerts when things were missed – but it threw up its own challenges, she said. Ms Williams said workshops were held last month with about 30 staff from the child health department, and staff from other areas would be involved progressively over the next several months.

Dead birds a mystery „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding MYSTERY surrounds hundreds of birds found dead in a Leeston cemetery. But authorities will not be investigating what caused the birds to die. Resident Myles White was out walking his dog when he found rings of dead european greenfinches around the trees at the Ellesmere Public Cemetery. “They were in the process of dying, squeaking and stuff. It was bloody gross,” he said. Environment Canterbury, the district council, the Department of Conservation, Forest and Bird and Green Party MP Eugenie Sage were contacted by Mr White. But because the birds are an unprotected species, the incident has been deemed a forgotten case. The district council referred the matter to DOC. A DOC spokeswoman said it was not appropriate for it to investigate because it did not involve public conservation land or protected species. Mr White suspected the birds had died from poison to protect crops in the area.

Bridget Rutherford reports on road policing SENIOR Constables Aniwa MacKenzie and Robyn Pewhairangi know all too well the effects of a crash. Both have been involved in serious crashes while off duty – one caused by a drink driver, and the other by a woman who should not have been driving unsupervised. That’s why making the region’s roads safer is so important to them. They, along with Senior Constable Stephanie De Vere, run programmes to help get people the appropriate licences, under the guidance of Senior Sergeant Kelly Larsen. On September 8, 2007, Senior Constable MacKenzie was driving home from the movies with her husband Dayle.

sister’s home. She regained consciousness to her sister’s voice, who had heard the commotion and ran outside. She said the young man tried

to walk away. He was later disqualified from driving, put on home detention and had to pay reparation costs. She realised that kind of thing happened on a daily basis. “The consequences after that, which I’ve been a victim of, can be catastrophic depending on the severity of the accident.” A decade later, she is the police project lead for the Limited Service Volunteers programme at Burnham Military Camp, which helps vulnerable and unemployed youths get their learner licence. The free six-week programme, run by the New Zealand Defence Force on behalf of Work and Income, aims to boost their confidence and help people improve their job prospects. “A lot of these kids have slipped through the cracks,” she said. “They’re there because life has been a bit tough for them. We’re just trying to make it a bit easier.” One participant who finished the last course said having a licence would boost his job prospects. He said he had been trying to get it for three years, but could not afford to do it.

straight and narrow with a licence Senior Constable MacKenzie said a lot of them say they would rather get pulled over without a licence, than sit the test and risk failing. “They get caught, then they get disqualified, and they caught, and they get disqualified again and it just snowballs,” Senior Constable Pewhairangi said. She has only just passed her physical competency test allowing her to go back to front line work after having her spine fused last year. Part of the cause was a motorcycle crash she had while riding to work along Manchester St in 2011. A woman driving in the opposite direction didn’t see her and turned in front of her into Gloucester St, causing the crash. The driver was on her restricted licence, with the proviso she was supervised while driving. She wasn’t. Senior Constable Pewhairangi said police were thinking differently – they were providing the ambulance at the top of the cliff, rather than at the bottom. “She could have killed herself. It could have had worse consequences. If we can stop that

happening I think that’s what we need to focus on.” She is about to start a five-week programme to help people gain their learner licence. Next week, the first of three courses will start, which sees mentors help participants learn the road rules, and prepare them for their test.

It is similar to the Community Driver Mentor Programme, a collaboration between New Zealand Transport Agency, AA, Salvation Army and police, helping people aged 16-24 progress from their learner licence through to their restricted. Senior Constable Pewhairangi said helping people gain their

licence meant they could get employment, stopping them from going on the benefit. That could have spin-offs in other areas, such as domestic violence, she said. Youth drivers were a particular focus for police. Police data shows between 2012-2016, of the young drivers who caused accidents in Canterbury, 81 did not have a licence. Speed and alcohol were both “over represented” as contributing factors. A lot of those happened between midnight and 3am. There were 255 crashes caused by drivers on their learners – speed and alcohol often a factor – and 491 on their restricted. Thirty-seven crashes were

caused by disqualified drivers. In more than half, alcohol was a contributing factor. Another programme Senior Constable Pewhairangi runs is the driving while forbidden compliance scheme. If someone without a licence – say theirs has expired – is pulled over, police give them 28 days to become compliant. Of those, 42 per cent actually do. Nearly 1000 forbidden drivers are caught in Canterbury each year. Both Senior Constable MacKenzie and Senior Constable Pewhairangi said they joined the police because they wanted to help people. And in spite of what many people thought, they didn’t enjoy giving out tickets. “I stopped one last week, no registration, no warrant, learner driver, carrying unauthorised passengers, the car seat in the back I didn’t even want to look at with the wee baby, no L plates, no driver’s licence. There’s seven. Where do you start? Where do you stop?” Senior Constable MacKenzie said. She issued the woman with two tickets and walked away “feeling rubbish.” But she knew it had to be done.

Housing plan upsets iwi Relief in sight for

„„ By Julia Evans A HOUSING development proposal set for the rim of the Cranford basin does not provide for the cultural well-being of iwi, says Ngai Tahu. The iwi’s Ngai Tūāhuriri is unhappy with stormwater from the development being diverted into Horseshoe Lake, which is 4km away. The significance of the site comes from pre-European times when Waikākāriki/Horseshoe Lake was the site of a significant Maori settlement called Te Oranga. The development is a city council plan to regenerate about 50ha of former farmland in Papanui between Winters and McFaddens Rds. Up to 420 homes would be built on the rim of the development, with the rest of the basin used for wetlands, cycle and walkways. In a bid to stop the likelihood of flooding in the area, the plan includes significant flood prevention methods. In its submission to the city council, Ngai Tūāhuriri said the plan does not provide for the cultural well-being of the iwi and

controversial intersection

„„ By Caitlin Miles

REGENERATE: Part of the rural area west of Cranford St could be redeveloped for housing. ​ its relationship with Horseshoe Lake. But there are currently no other practical options for the disposal of the water, city council staff said. “However, there have been preliminary investigations into whether an alternative outfall can be found as part of the regeneration plan for the Avon River Corridor,” staff said. City council head of planning and strategic transport Richard Osborne said the city council understands the cultural significance of Horseshoe Lake to Ngai Tūāhuriri. “It is committed to working closely with the runanga to try and find an acceptable alternative solution. Decisions

on potential solutions need to be considered as part of wider work streams,” Mr Osborne said. Ngai Tūāhuriri could not be contacted by The Star. The city council opened the regeneration plan for public feedback in May. More than 120 responses were submitted, with 64 in general support, 45 against and 11 neutral. The draft plan will be put back to the city council so it can decide whether to submit to Regenerate Christchurch. From there, Regenerate Christchurch will make a recommendation to Minister supporting Great Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner to sign off the plan. 

TRAFFIC LIGHTS at the controversial St Andrews Hill intersection, in Ferrymead, will be reprogrammed to try and ease confusion for motorists. The left arrow light at the Main Rd traffic lights will be reprogrammed to allow for vehicles wanting to turn right off St Andrews Hill Rd onto Bridle Path Rd a better chance to get across a lane. Heathcote Ward city councillor Sara Templeton said: “This will allow St Andrews Hill to clear without worrying about unseen traffic coming around the corner.” Lights on Main and Bridle Path Rds will communicate and allow traffic to flow better. Residents in the area have complained about the layout and design of the intersection suggesting that it would not work even before it was built. Three options were presented for public consultation last year –

640 submissions were received. Option one proposed to leave the intersection as is, option two would see new traffic signals on St Andrews Hill Rd and new pre-signals on Bridle Path Rd and option three is to ban right turns from Bridle Path Rd onto Main Rd. None of these options were given the green light by Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board. They have decided to change the light phasing which will be trialled for three months. When it starts is yet to be determined.

Vehicle for free things to do in city A REPURPOSED parking meter in the middle of Cathedral Square has started issuing tickets of a very different kind. Said Gap Filler Co-Founder Coralie Winn: “The Open City parking meter delivers you your own Christchurch secret to explore. It might be a good climbing tree in the Botanic Gardens, an interesting courtyard within a new building, or a great place to feed the ducks.” “THese little secrets and more have been suggested by locals as well as visitors. Each adventure helps you get to know your city better through someone else’s eyes.” She said Open City is all about celebrating the undervalued, sweet, free things to do in Christchurch. Open City is a collaboration between Gap Filler and the All Right? campaign. Sue Turner, All Right? manager, said Open City will help Cantabrians reconnect with their city. Ms Turner said each activity aligns with one of the Five Ways to Wellbeing – connect, take notice, give, be active and keep learning. These actions are

scientifically-proven to improve wellbeing. A key part of the Open City project is encouraging Christchurch people to contribute their own ideas of sweet, free things they love about Christchurch. “The Open City website allows anyone to upload their favourite sweet, free things to do. If it’s an activity within the four avenues it could be issued by the parking meter,” says Ms Turner. “We really want to encourage people to add their Christchurch secret gems to the website. The key thing is they must be free.” Ms Turner is expecting the Open City parking meter to be very popular with families during the school holidays. “It’s a great, free family activity for the holidays. There are already 50 great secrets to explore, none of them cost a cent, and they all help you get your family outside and out of the house.” Ms Winn said Gap Filler projects are no longer just about vacant sites and empty buildings. “They’re about bringing new ideas and creative projects to life in the city to keep it fun, interesting and accessible.”

Inventor’s pursuit

SMOOTH: ICEcycles co-founder Steve Muir shows off one of his many inventions: His latest cycle-powered blender.

ICEcycles volunteers have given away more than 1100 bikes and repaired hundreds more. Steve Muir, one of its founders, spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about his bicycle inventions, the cycling church and the car park v cycleway debate

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

So tell me how ICEcycles works? We started in 2009 and the aim is to help people to access bikes. Often they’ll need a repair but have been to a bike shop and couldn’t afford the price quoted to fix it, but we’ll do it for free or for a donation, whatever they can afford. We hold about five workshops a year helping to fix people’s bikes, and a couple of meetings a month, where we restore donated bikes to give away. We have a good group of about 60 or 70 volunteers, and a really good sense of community. It’s really fun to be involved with, because people are so appreciative. After eight years, are you starting to run out of people needing bikes? No – it’s the opposite. Demand has gone up exponentially, so we’ve had to restrict the area we work in to just the east of the city, otherwise we would have had an 18-month

waiting list for bikes – we try to keep it to a month at the most. Who do the bikes go to? All sorts. We do a lot of kids bikes, lots of them donated through the community trusts and schools around Phillipstown and Aranui. But we have the most demand for large men’s bikes, because lots of men want bikes but not a lot are donated. At the workshops, it’s a real variety, too. We get a lot of people on low incomes, but we also get people on high wages who just don’t know how to fix their bikes or don’t have the tools for it. You must have bikes of all shapes and sizes donated – is it difficult to find the right person for a bike? Not usually, but we do get the odd one. One which was quite weird was a unicycle with a sort of skateboard outrigger. We sold that on Trade Me, in the end. But we’re trying to help as many people as pos-

sible get on bikes, so we always try to help. We’ve had a lot of people who want to ride but have balancing problems on a standard bike. You can buy adult tricycles, but most of them are more than $1000, and a lot of people can’t afford that. So I’ve invented an adult tricycle prototype for them. I saw you’ve invested all kinds of things in the past, too – like snow chains for bicycles? Yes. That was a few years ago, and the weather’s been so warm lately, I haven’t had much opportunity to use them. My bike trailers are my most popular creation, but one of my more recent was a bike with a blender jug, which makes a nice fruit smoothie as you cycle. That’s amazing – so you can cycle to work and have a smoothie ready once you get there? Well, the latest is more of a stationary one.

to bring bicycles to the people This is my third now. The first one you could bike down the road on, which was fun, but the problem was the blender was fixed in place, so you had to tip the whole bike upside-down to pour your smoothie out. Then I built one with the blender on the back, but then you couldn’t see when your smoothie was ready. This one has a removable blender on the front. And you create these around your day job at Christchurch Hospital. Your job title is medical physicist – what does that actually mean? I do a lot of work with x-ray machines, and 3D imaging and 3D printing. It’s a lot of technical problem-solving and work on development of new products, finding new solutions to medical problems. Things like 3D printing can making treatment better and more successful and also save money so it’s easier for people on low incomes to access. Where did your inventing start – were you constantly pulling things apart as a child? Definitely. A few clocks and a

lot of old electronics. It’s often the best way to learn, though. If we have a new volunteer at ICEcycles, we’ll often get them stripping the bikes apart first, so they learn to use the tools and get familiar with all the components. Do you remember your first bike?

Definitely. It was a little blue single speed. I remember riding to kindy on my bike by myself in Gore, where I grew up. I loved the sense of freedom. It was so good to be able to go where I wanted, whenever I wanted. You were at a fairly fiery city council meeting last week, where a lot of business owners

The roadways are definitely the biggest thing I hear is holding people back from cycling because people don’t feel safe enough to battle with cars. So, I think the impact separated cycleways will have on getting people cycling is huge and worthwhile. Christchurch used to have more people cycling than Copenhagen and Amsterdam, but while they built cycleways in the 70s, we built roadways. You’ve started a cycling church. Could you tell me about that? It started years ago, when I was discussing with a few friends from Ilam Baptist Church why we sit in church in a darkened room, pulling the curtains even on a beautiful day, when we often feel more spiritually alive biking around in nature. So I suppose it was a mindfulness exercise – when you’re in a beautiful place you should be appreciating it, but it was also very tongue-in-cheek. At one point, it was about 20 people, but I tend to just do small rides with a few friends now.

Viewpoint A way forward for Cathedral CHRIST CHURCH Cathedral sits at the very heart of Christchurch – it’s the city’s namesake, an icon, a place of worship, a community facility, a tourist attraction and a beloved heritage building. But, for more than six years, New Zealand’s most well-known church has sat in ruins – a sad and constant reminder of all that we’ve been through. It’s a divisive issue and everyone has an opinion but, one way or another, a decision must be made. That’s why this week I presented a Government offer of reinstatement to Bishop Victoria Matthews. The offer includes a Crown cash contribution of $10 million and an interest free suspensory loan of $15 million, as well as $10 million from the city council and $13.7 million from the Great Christchurch Buildings Trust. It also includes an independent fundraising trust, legislation to streamline the process and a joint venture to govern and manage the project. The church would remain, by far, the biggest contributor with its insurance payment of $42 million. Together, we have more than

Nicky Wagner $90 million — enough to complete the Cathedral and ancillary buildings. The offer is not about favouring reinstatement over restoration or a contemporary new-build. It’s about finding a way forward that doesn’t leave everyone tied up in court for five to 10 years. The Bishop and the Synod now have a clear and detailed option for consideration, with added se-

curity and certainty, particularly around funding. In putting forward this offer, the Government, city council and heritage groups are attempting to break the current stalemate by balancing the property rights of the Church with the historical value of the building and its economic potential. This issue effects everyone in Christchurch. By reinstating the Cathedral we can finally unlock the city centre and once again have a bustling and vibrant core that attracts tourists, appeals to developers and makes Cantabrians — and New Zealanders — proud. •Nicky Wagner is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

do so. The decision to access and wear arms is made based on the officers first hand information or direction from a more senior officer/NCO in a control position. The officers with rapid access are also trained and required to confirm their understanding of the rules around the use of those firearms every time they access them. I would hate to see New Zealand move to armed police as a matter of routine like so many other countries do, France, United States, as a couple of examples. We do have gun issues here for sure and arming or not of the police isn’t going to change that, it may deter some one from using a firearm improperly but most of those who do so now will continue to do so regardless of the police being armed or not. This is not a simple problem and I don’t know the answer. The US demonstrates how gun control doesn’t work.

Students want to bring change Ann Carey – I understand your views and I agree with many of them but unfortunately I feel the time has come for our police to be taken far more seriously. Police are armed in Australia, they wear side arms and they are taken very seriously. Kim Rose Powers – One side of me says yes. They need to defend themselves but on the other side I say no because like in the States the police are to quick with their guns and don’t use them fairly. Pam Wilson – While I understand the need pointed out in this article, one of the things that has most impressed me about New Zealand over the years is that the police have had no real need to carry weapons. The method in which conflict is resolved is done in a less threatening and non-violent fashion than what is seen elsewhere, especially in the US. The shoot first, ask questions later ideology does not

sit well with me. However, when the lives of the police are threatened by weaponry, then their safety must also be considered. It’s a catch-22 situation and I’m sorry that it has come to this in NZ. Vicki-Anne Parker – Police need to feel safe and protected on the streets. Being a former partner of an officer who has been assaulted and knowing of others who have been assaulted on the job it is just another way for partners knowing they’re going to be safe in a very dangerous situation at last resort. A gun is only ever used as a last resort when all other options haven’t worked. I know that if a stranger was walking around shooting everywhere, and if police shot them in the leg to stop it I would support it for public safety. Bryan Flanagan – Sadly, it is necessary. Some bad will come of it, but in balance it is necessary. •More Rise Up, p28

LAST WEEK my hopes for the future were boosted by two very special events in Christchurch. One was the remarkable launch of the 2017 Youth Custody Index by students at St Thomas of Canterbury College and other was attending the community awards for people in the Riccarton, Hornby and Halswell areas. Here I saw people who were committed to making our neighbourhoods, their city and their country a better place. This is something that we should take time out to celebrate. THis year was the fourth that students from St Thomas have released their index which uses the Official Information Act to compile a snapshot of how well the justice system is dealing with young people. THe impressive young men who worked on the project are confronting head-on the important issue of how our young people in custody are to have a voice. Impressively, they also managed to bring together all the country’s watchdogs onto one stage for the launch. This was the first time that

CONCERN: St Thomas of Canterbury College students have compiled a snapshot of how well the justice system is dealing with young people.

Chief Ombudsman Judge Peter Boshier, Children’s Commissioner, Judge Andrew Becroft and Chief Human Rights Commissioner, David Rutherford had shared the public stage. These young men are not the leaders of tomorrow – they’re already leading. What struck me the most about these young men was how much they cared about

their world and wanted to bring about change that world for the better. THis was a sentiment I was also struck by at the HalswellHornby-Riccarton Community Board Community Awards. Here, local people were honoured for their work in residents associations, for delivering meals on wheels, for advising at citizens advice bureaus and much more. As the citations were read I was doing the mental arithmetic totting up the thousands of hours that these individuals had spent helping others and their communities and, most importantly and even harder to calculate, making a difference. We are indeed fortunate to have all of these people in our neighbourhoods and in our city. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman •Lianne Dalziel, p28

Viewpoint

Making city 21-century resilient still some way off YOU PROBABLY saw the announcement of SCIRT coming to an end. THis generated howls of protest – because of course there’s still a lot of work to be done. If, like me before I became the mayor, you thought the Government had agreed to contribute to fixing every bit of what we call the horizontal infrastructure (roads and pipes) damaged by the earthquakes, you may well be disappointed by that. But that’s what has happened.

Lianne Dalziel The Cost Sharing Agreement only covered ‘eligible’ roading and three-waters (water, stormwater and wastewater) infrastructure. And not everything was eligible. I was surprised to find out footpaths

Ballantine's Finest Scotch Whisky

weren’t covered at all. It would make sense to get everything done at once, but the model didn’t allow for that The truth is that the end of the SCIRT contracting alliance does not mean everything is now ‘as good as new’ – far from it. Although the new pipes that have been laid are now made of much better materials capable of withstanding future earthquakes, there is still more to be done, so the promise of a 21st-century resilient city is still some way off.

The good news about SCIRT is that we now have really great information about the state of our infrastructure. For example, we now have CCTV surveys of approximately 43 per cent of our wastewater network. Having data like this provides the tools to develop the best asset management system in the country. The SCIRT alliance pays for any defects we find in the next 12 months, but funding now reverts to the usual local government arrangements. This means NZTA funds half the costs of approved roading projects. But for the pipes and pump stations, we are back to funding these on our own. We have set up a Three Waters Capital Programme Directorate to better manage the city’s water, stormwater and wastewater systems. And we are developing an integrated asset management system. SCIRT may have finished and there may still be more to do. But with improved data, delivery, and your ideas feeding into the Long Term Plan, we can deliver that 21st-century resilient city we were promised – it’s just going to take more time. •To ask Ms Dalziel a question, email mayor@ccc.govt.nz.

Helen Baker – This decision is worrying, another large quake could put everyone in the building at risk as it will not meet the new building codes. Plus it is a horrible unsuitable building for patients and staff. Just hope I never become a patient. Stephen Leitch – The old Riverside block was opened by Rob Muldoon back in 1978 according to the plaque on the wall and is way past its use by date as I was advised before the quakes working the site in security. Jean Gardiner – Working in the Riverside block with the windows that don’t shut properly, the heating that doesn’t go on half the heaters and won’t go off on the other half, and the freezing draughts throughout the building in the middle of the night is horrible and demoralising. The building itself is disgusting. Where is the money going to come from to repair this and to maintain it in the future? Let’s get real and use money for treating patients and not paying for glue and tape to keep holding the building together. Sarah O’Keefe – I’ve spent time as a patient in two wards of the Riverside building, it needs to be pulled down. It’s disgusting.

GARDENING ADVICE

33

Nothing tastes better than home grown, juicy fruit. Adding fruit trees to your garden offers you everything an ornamental tree does, but with the added bonus of fruit crops. You don’t need to start a large orchard; it’s easy to incorporate a few fruit trees into your garden planting or even grow them in pots.

with

We have a Daltons Premium Fruit Tree Care pack to give away which includes everything you need to plant and care for fruit trees. Valued at over $70, it contains:

We have three flowering cherry trees in our section. They appear to be sending out roots which are coming up in other parts of the garden. What is the best way to stop this happening? I cut them back as soon they appear but the little devils grow so fast. Will they cause any damage to our new drive? And does cutting them back have any effect on the trees?

QUESTION

• • • •

Today’s winning question came from Patrick Duggan. Congratulations!

2 x Garden Time Planting Mix Daltons Premium Planter Tabs 2 x Daltons Mulch & Grow PLUS a pair of comfortable, versatile Red Back gardening gloves from Omni Products (www.omniproducts.co.nz)

BE IN TO WIN!

It is quite common for some cherry trees (depending on the root stock they are grafted on), to have suckers or vegetative growth emerging from near ground level and sometimes from the roots of the cherry tree.

ANSWER

$70

PRIZE PACK!

This growth should be cut back when it becomes apparent, otherwise it will grow quite quickly and consume energy that would otherwise be available to the flowering cherry. In some instances, this suckering growth only occurs when trees are quite juvenile, and other times it may continue for a number of years. There is no danger to the cherry tree in cutting this growth back, in fact quite the opposite. Do not be concerned for your driveway; while the growth you outline is a nuisance, as long as it’s controlled quite quickly and regularly, there should be little or no chance of actual physical damage to surrounding pathways or driveways.

More than one way to grow strawberries EDIBLE GARDENS have never been more popular and one of the easiest of fruits to cultivate is the strawberry. Because of their compact habit, strawberries can be grown in hanging baskets, containers or the aptlynamed strawberry pots, as well as the usual raised-up garden beds. They can begin cropping in a matter of weeks and will go on producing for much of the year, especially in warmer areas. •Strawberries in the garden – Choose a sunny position that hasn’t grown strawberries for a number of years and dig in

some organic compost. Plant strawberry runners or seedlings into raised-up mounds, and apply a layer of mulch. It important it is to mulch the plants, both to retain moisture and to keep the fruit cleanly above the soil. Pea straw or lucerne hay make a good a mulch. Remove runners, unless you want to use them to propagate some new plants (which should be done every three years or so). •Strawberries in pots – Start by choosing a suitable container. Fill with a top quality potting mix and plant the strawberries.

Water in well. Feed occasionally with plant food and watch out for snails and slugs. •Strawberries in hanging baskets – This is a fun way to grow strawberries, but the main challenge with growing any plant in a hanging basket is that it’s much more vulnerable to drying out. Line moss baskets with plastic sheet and poke holes for drainage. Fill with a hanging basket mix which contains added soil wetters and water-storing crystals. Ripe berries look particularly decorative dangling from a basket (right).

New Brighton furniture store owners bring a different retailing strategy

Owners Kim Booth and Bob Butterfield

The Best Furniture Shop hasn’t had a SALE in 8 years and the owners could not be prouder. That’s because the prices are at their lowest 365 days a year. They have assembled ‘top of the line’ ranges, often sourced from exactly the same suppliers as the big name stores, but without the high overheads loaded on. They don’t have 20 staff hovering about - you’ll be served by owners Kim or Bob, or perhaps Ian. The Best Furniture’s low prices are achieved by an approach

immediately obvious in winter by the lack of heating - just keep your jacket on and reap the benefits of a great, honest deal. A new shipment of oak and white painted furniture means the store is now bulging with stock. Easy parking right outside the door, a huge range of stock, and a cheery, down to earth approach, is helping Best Furniture excel by truly putting the customer first. They are open 7 days and online at www.bestfurniture.co.nz

Opera singer on path to greatness „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding AN EMERGING opera singer is one step closer to achieving her ultimate dream of one day performing at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. From the moment Elisabeth Harris, 30, scored a free ticket to see Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly in her early teens, she knew the dramatic life of opera was for her. “Opera is ridiculous. The things that happen in three hours, it is just over the top, but I love that, I can’t get enough,” she said. Nearly 20 years later, the mezzo soprano, who grew up in Opawa, will travel to the United States in September to train under former leading New York City Opera company singer Ruth Golden at the Manhattan School of Music. Harris is currently based in Wellington where she runs her own music teaching business. She will hold a special farewell concert in Christchurch on August 20, featuring some of her favourite opera pieces, including music from Carmen and composers Benjamin Britten and Wolfgang Mozart. The show will feature performances from singer Ingrid Fomison-Nurse, pianist Anna Maksymova, 13-year-old violinist Justin Hodges and soprano singer Jayden Walker.

mer’s disease and died just before his 55th birthday in December. “I am sure he would be happy I am following my dreams . . . it was a bit of a problem for him initially having a daughter on the stage but he got his head around it,” she said. While Harris said she inherited her father’s sense of humour, he was quite shy and didn’t like to be the centre of attention, which made for an interesting combination when his daughter first wanted to be on the stage. But she has fond memories of the last recital she performed for her father at The Piano last year. “He still remembered me and was so happy for me and what I was doing – it was really exciting,” she said. She said it would be fabulous to be up on stage at the Metropolitan Opera House, and her main goals are to become a professional opera singer, keep teaching and possibly start her own young artist programme.

UPCOMING: Elisabeth Harris at the New Zealand Aria competition in Rotorua with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.

With a love of fashion and picking up quirky pieces online and at op-shops, Harris does not look like your typical traditional opera singer. “There are so many opera singers trying to make it, you have

got to have a point of difference, and if I am remembered as the girl with the crazy hair, so be it,” she said. Harris’ endeavour to complete her Masters of Music overseas has been nearly two years in the

making after she deferred her acceptance to the Manhattan School of Music to raise further funds and be with her terminally ill father. Her father Geoff was diagnosed with early-onset Alzhei-

•Mezzo to Manhattan will be held from 2pm on Sunday, August 20, at Knox Church. Door sales cost $30. To book, phone Lynne Havenaar on 960 4090 or email info@operafoundation. co.nz To support Harris on her trip go to givealittle.co.nz/ cause/mezzotomanhattan

Ali Harper delights audience with her Songs For Nobodies Songs For Nobodies by Joanna Murray-Smith, directed by Ross Gumbley, The Court Theatre. Reviewed by Barry Southam IT TAKES a class performer to stand alone on a stage for an hour and a half and keep an audience captivated. Ali Harper does just that with

Songs For Nobodies. Her rendition of Edith Piaf, the little sparrow, was top drawer. Although Piaf ’s rough edge was not quite there, it was still a very recognisable version of her famous forebear. Again, a full-throated Come Rain Or Shine brought back memories of that gutsy singer Judy Garland, who could always belt out a number.

Billie Holiday’s Strange Fruit, was a good contrast to Ain’t Nobody’s Business If I Do and Patsy Kline’s performance at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall in 1962 was well reproduced, providing the largest selection of the night, including the classic Stand By Your Man. To complete the quintet of famous singers, there was

the challenging Vissi d’arte from Puccini’s Tosca by Maria Callas on board the Christina somewhere in the Mediterranean on August 3, 1957. It was given the full volume treatment, no easy task. The range of styles is formidable but Harper handled the transitions with apparent ease, seeming just as comfortable with jazz as

with opera or country and western. Musical director Richard Marrett should be well pleased with the results of their collaboration, as should writer, Australian Joanna Murray-Smith, who only gave permission for the rights for the play to be performed in New Zealand if Harper undertook the demanding role.

BUSY: The crowds of Shibuya are a warm-up to the throbbing entertainment mecca of Shinjuku (centre). Try the Robot Restaurant.

Explore Tokyo’s entertainment mecca „„ By Mike Yardley LIKE MUCH of Tokyo, the once war-torn moonscape of Shibuya is a glitzy, buzzing district of skyscrapers, shops and entertainment. Outside the railway station, I ventured to Shibuya Crossing, nicknamed The Scramble, which lays claim to being the world’s busiest pedestrian crossing. I’ll take their word for it. Beneath the dancing blaze of giant video screens, watching the sea of humanity cross the street, from all quarters, is a stunningly engrossing spectacle, like massmovement ballet. By the time the next light phase rolls round, each street corner has been fully reloaded with a fresh stock of humanity, like a seamless video loop. Braving the crowds of Shibuya is a warm-up for the throbbing, pulsating entertainment mecca of Shinjuku. Over 3 million people pass through the world’s busiest train station each day, and Shinjuku’s entertainment excesses sprawl to the east, in a head-spinning spangle of neon-drenched lighting and LED screens. Strip-clubs, pachinko parlours, jazz bars, love hotels, fetish bars and cabarets all jostle for attention in notorious Kabukicho, Tokyo’s notorious red-light district. Don’t flash your wallet too openly in these parts – and males on their own can expect plenty of attention from big-talking touts. Adjoining Kabukicho are the evocative alleyways of Golden Gai, a throwback to Tokyo’s earlier days, home to a time-warped tumble of tiny drinking dens, many who hook punters in with trademark gimmicks, whether it’s a signature drink, off-the-wall décor or outlandish staff costumes, like troll toys or hospital uniforms. Champion and Albatross are two of the tourist favourites, but aside from these larger bars, gawp up a few staircases to see what takes your fancy. Shinjuku is also home to the mesmerising and glittery escapism of the Robot Restaurant.

BEAUTY: Andaz Tokyo is a lifestyle hotel revolution. The bathrooms are a wooden haven while the guestrooms exude purity of form.

This mind-boggling sci-fi cabaret show and its garishly illuminated interior represents a mash-up of the crazy, tacky and raunchy. Three metre robots dance and gyrate like gigantic electronic puppets with bikiniclad singers, alongside raging aliens, mechanical sharks, heavily-armed mermaids, demonic taiko drummers and futuristic ninjas in this laser-lit, neon-gushing extravaganza. From spectacular battle scenes to bizarre romantic ballads, this eye-popping orgy of wacky live entertainment pulls in the crowds. For a complete change of scenery, be sure to peruse Tokyo’s catwalk cool district Harajuku, where fashionistas, high-end divas and teenage girls in particular come to flaunt their latest looks. You’ll also find the Rockabilly guys strutting their stuff here – like Asian Elvis Presleys. Nearby, Takeshita-dori and Cat St are where to head if you want to check out the style tribes of teenage girls, strutting their latest

subculture statements. Grab a sweet crepe and stroll through the pageant. The whole Gothic meets glamrock aesthetic is still huge, giving rise to the name goth-loli girls. Other costume styles I spotted spanned the frilly French maid kit, nurses uniforms splattered with blood, and a multitude of superheroes. Sunday apparently is the prime day for this exuberant exhibition of teenage costume play. Is there not something a bit dodgy about 14-year-old girls dolled up like French maids? Perched on the top floors of the 52-storey Toranomon Hills skyscraper, Andaz Tokyo embodies the best of the lifestyle hotel revolution. The hotel’s ultraspacious guestrooms, with lavish living quarters, faithfully showcase Japan’s cultural emphasis on beauty and purity of form. The floor-to-ceiling windows serve up show-stopping skyline vistas that sweep across to Tokyo Bay and as far as Mt Fuji.

SOCIAL: Cocktails on the rooftop bar of Andaz Tokyo.

My bathroom was a beautifully wooden haven, fitted out with a deep Japanese soaking tub, fabulous rain shower, and all the contemporary creature comforts. Additional frills include fluffy slippers, robes and customary cotton pyjamas, yukata. In trademark Andaz fashion, you’ll enjoy a sweep of treats. The sociability factor is to the fore in the Andaz Lounge, where complimentary Happy Hour drinks and snacks heighten the hotel’s convivial atmosphere. I particularly loved the Rooftop Bar’s terrace, an unrivalled perch for cocktails at sundown. The setting is also heavily in-demand for lavish weddings, which you may well sneak a peek at. The terrace features Tokyo’s highest stand-alone chapel. However you choose to immerse yourself in the Andaz Tokyo offerings, this seductively stylish and sociable hotel is a class act. •For best rates and seasonal specials, head to https:// tokyo.andaz.hyatt.com/

FAST FACTS •I arrived into Tokyo from Osaka, at Shinbashi Station, a stone’s throw from centrallylocated Andaz Tokyo. Whether it’s riding the rails of the storied Yamanote Line, which lassoes central Tokyo, or purring through the countryside on a Shinkansen bullet train, the to-the-minute timetabling doesn’t miss a beat. Before travelling to Japan, purchase a Japan Rail Pass, which delivers excellent value for money, total flexibility and travel convenience. Contact Rail Plus, the experts in rail, to secure a pass to suit. www.railplus.co.nz •Add a Queensland stopover to a Japan getaway. After flying direct from Christchurch to the Gold Coast, Jetstar’s 787 Dreamliner services deliver added comfort at unbeatable value, as you wing your way to Tokyo. For extra-comfort, upgrade to the best-value Business Class experience to Japan. Wide leather reclining seats with a 96cmin seat pitch allowed me to get a decent in-flight sleep, although it is not a fully lie-flat affair.

„„ By Ross Kiddie I’M OFTEN asked if I would like to take a long road trip to form a media vehicle evaluation. That was the case when I eagerly accepted an opportunity to drive the new Subaru Impreza XV back to Auckland after last week’s media launch in Napier. I’m so pleased I did, for it was a fabulous drive and one which really proved how capable the XV is on the highway. I can also report it is a competent vehicle off the seal - the launch provided the opportunity to tackle some shingle roads - and on the long haul back to Auckland I stopped at a friend’s home south of Hamilton who has a driveway that is steep and muddy, the XV was in its element with 220mm of ground clearance and fourwheel-drive. The new XV was a long time coming, it’s roughly been a five-year life cycle and that’s about as long as you would expect a manufacturer to produce a variant in today’s market. Nevertheless, the newcomer was worth the wait, it arrives here in two levels – Sport and Premium – both are keenly priced at $34,990 and $39,990 respectively, which by my reckoning are the bargains of the mid-size crossover/ sport utility vehicle market. The XV is a compact SUV, it’s not a big car but there is adequate room for five, and given increased underhatch proportions there’s enough room to pack the tent and camping gear for the high-country fishing trip. The XV certainly hasn’t lost any of its X-factor, it is a stunning looker with chunky, bold and almost aggressive styling. It has an in-your-face wheel design which promotes a can-do look, and it has a wilful driving feel. Under the bonnet sits a 2-litre, horizontallyopposed, four-cylinder engine, both models drive through a continuously variable automatic transmission with a seven-step, paddle-shift function. The XV’s engine is rated with 115kW of power (6000rpm) and 196Nm of torque available at 4000rpm. The way the engine works through CVT

is uninhibited, and it is dynamic in the respect that it pulls happily no matter what point the engine revolutions are operating at. Response to throttle request is decisive. I kept at a steady pace which meant several highway overtakes, and the power comes in freely without strain nor much sound in total. • Price – Subaru Impreza XV, $34,990 • Dimensions – Length, 4465mm; width, 1800mm; height, 1615mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, four-wheel-drive, 1995cc, 115kW, 196Nm, continuously variable automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 9.6.sec • Fuel usage – 7l/100km

If you listen hard you can detect the harmonics which accompany the boxer engine design, but it is well isolated and far from intrusive. The engine is free-revving and responsive, but the beauty of the flat-four engine is its ability to work low down, and with the inclusion of CVT it quickly settles into a low revving pattern. Against the stopwatch the XV will launch to 100km/h from a standstill in 9.6sec and will make 120km/h from 80km/h in 5.8sec. These are satisfactory figures which will give peace of mind. Subaru claims a sevenlitre per 100km (40mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average, development work on the boxer engine to keep it fuel-friendly has been ongoing and that certainly showed during my long highway haul. At 100km/h it sips fuel at the rate of just 5l/100km

(56mpg) with the engine turning over slowly at just 1550rpm. My entire Napier to Auckland average was 7.7l/100km (37mpg) which I thought was most impressive. Through lack of familiarity and the threat of ice, I didn’t push the XV too hard into the tight and twisty sections of the Central Plateau, but I can report that it steers with precision and has accuracy and balance which seems quite unnatural for a vehicle which is over 1.6m tall. Even though it sits high, the centre of gravity is still low, that’s a by-product of the flat-four engine, the weight sits low in the engine bay and that has a beneficial affect against the force of gravity. Subaru has upspecced the new generation model. There’s a raft of new gear including Eyesight – a computer-guided safety technology – Apple Car Play and Android Auto are fitted, along with the clever X-mode drive system which improves driver control on rough roads, steep terrain and slippery surfaces through integrated control of the engine. On the downhill slope at my friend’s home, hill descent control kept the XV at slow, steady speed. All of these inclusions sit over and above the normal features you would expect in today’s modern car and, of course, the XV gets a five-star Australasian New Car Assessment Program safety rating. The new model will be in showroom floors later this month which is just in time for the winter ski season. I know it’s been a popular car on the skifield access roads since its inception, and with Subaru sales buoyant in the South Island I can see its value and capability tempting to a large cross-section of buyers.

Nate Myles to make Melbourne Storm debut off bench VETERAN PROP Nate Myles is set to make his Melbourne Storm debut after being named on the bench to face the Parramatta Eels on Saturday night. The 230-game former Queensland forward made a mid-season move to Melbourne from Manly and has been recovering from a dislocated elbow. But a strong showing in the Queensland Cup last weekend,

plus the loss of six Storm players to Queensland’s State of Origin side, has led to Myles being added to the Storm’s starting 17 this round, The Sydney Morning Herald reported. The Storm won’t confirm their final side until game day but Myles’ leadership and experience is seen as an asset with captain Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk, Billy Slater, Tim Glasby, Will Chambers and Cameron Munster all missing

the game due to State of Origin preparations. The Eels have lost no players to Origin so have stars such as Michael Jennings, Corey Norman and Semi Radradra in their starting side. Another mid-season Storm signing, former South Sydney forward Robbie Rochow, has made the 21 outside the game day side, but could still come into the team later in the week.

Emerging hooker Slade Griffin will have a big job replacing Cameron Smith and is set for bigger minutes in the No 9 jumper as fellow hooker Brandon Smith, who previously shared that role with Griffin, is out injured. The Storm have named Kenny Bromwich, Joe Stimson, Mark Nicholls and Myles on the interchange bench, while Jahrome Hughes is back at fullback after deputising

Referee’s millennial milestone „„ By Gordon Findlater ONE OF the country’s most experienced whistle-blowers has celebrated 25 years in the craft by officiating in his 1000th game. Marc Anderson, 55, began refereeing football in 1992 after a stint playing the game in the 80s and early 90s. “I played to an extremely average level. I was one of those players who thought he was a lot better than he actually was and I had the attitude to match that as well,” said Anderson. His decision to take up refereeing came on the back of multiple concussions in 1991, the last of which caused him to end up in hospital. Faced with potentially not being able to play the game, he took a refereeing test, which he passed with flying colours. “My first game was at Lower Linwood Fields in April, 1992. I remember it vividly – it was absolutely bucketing down and it was an under-18 match,” said Anderson. “I was mentored in the early stages by our late patron Ivan Billcliff. If it wasn’t for him, I probably wouldn’t have stayed in the game as long as I have.” From there, Anderson moved to Ashburton and spent a number of years refereeing in Mid-Canterbury. “I got into it pretty full-on down there. It would be nothing on a Saturday to do four to five games. You’d start in the morning with a 15th grade, then a 17th and a 19th, and you would end up doing a senior game later on,” he said. “By the time Saturday evening rolled around, you were pretty

OFFICIAL: Marc Anderson has become just the second Mainland referee to officiate 1000 games.

knackered.” Anderson’s most memorable tournament also came during his time in Mid-Canterbury when Ashburton hosted the

1994 Japan Cup. The tournament was a 12th grade competition played over a week. It featured two teams from Japan and around 20 teams from

the South Island. Just a couple of days before it was due to begin, the fields were covered in 15cm of snow. “We had six fields which had the snow graded off them and pushed up along the side line, so they looked like six little bowls. I’ve never refereed in colder conditions,” said Anderson. His 1000th match came last month in a Canterbury Championship League game between Selwyn UFC and Christchurch United. He became just the second Mainland Football referee to bring up the milestone. “I got a round of applause from both teams, which was a nice touch.” Believe it or not, in his 25 years in charge of games Anderson has only ever had hands laid on him once. “I’ve had plenty of people yell and scream at me, but people usually only do that once because they generally get to warm their car up or see if the showers are working,” said Anderson. Following this season, Anderson plans on hanging up his boots and spending more time coaching and mentoring young referees. When asked what has changed most over his 25-year career, he had this to say: “It’s basically the same, there’s just less hair and more weight than when I started,” Anderson joked. “After 25 years, you become a bit like a good No 8 in rugby. He knows how to cover the ground smartly and you get a sense of where the ball is going to be before it gets there,” said Anderson. “I just love everything about the game – 99 per cent of the time it’s been an absolute joy.”

Nel continues to dominate metro competition „„ By Gordon Findlater SOUTH AFRICAN Dylan Nel continues to dominant the MVP race in the metro club competition. The Sumner No 8 scored two tries and set up another during Sumner’s 28-9 win over High School Old Boys at the weekend. The 24-year-old now has 11 tries for Sumner this season to lead all scorers in the metro competition. In the MVP medal standings, he has 19 points this season, six more than his nearest rival. “He’s got an ability to break tackles because he’s so big and strong, but then he also has a lot of speed for a big guy,” said Sumner coach Martin Dodgson. Nel made the move to Sumner from South Africa to further develop his game and is currently in

his third season with the club. He led the team with 10 tries last season – a feat he has already eclipsed in 2017. It’s no secret that Nel is highly thought of by many in higher ranks. Earlier this year, he was rushed to South Africa as injury cover for the Crusaders when Kieran Read broke his thumb. Nel has also been given a handful of opportunities for Canterbury, including their recent Ranfurly Shield defence over Wanganui. It’s expected he will play a big role for the provincial side later this year. “Who knows where his ceiling is. He is just so single-minded in his desire to get better,” said Dodgson.

Crusaders v Highlanders ‘friendly’ before finals THE CRUSADERS will play the Highlanders for the third time this season in a warm-up game in Timaru today. The game is in preparation for the final round of Super Rugby’s regular season next week, followed by the start of the finals series in which both teams are guaranteed a spot. The team will be captained by No 8 Jordan Taufua, with fellow loose-forward Heiden Bedwell-

Curtis and reserve halfback Bryn Hall as his vice-captains. The ‘friendly’ will be an opportunity for a number of players to return to play for the Crusaders following injuries earlier in the season, including Tim Perry, who will start at loose-head prop; Mitchell Dunshea, who will start at lock; and outside backs Jone Macilai and Digby Ioane, who will come off the bench.

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.

The Best Kept Secrets

Mike Fulham P 364 7406 E mike@christchurchstar.co.nz

to Selling Your Home

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the only impression No matter how good the interior of your home looks, buyers have already judged your home before they walk through the door. You never have a second chance to make a first impression. It’s important to make people feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry ways are also important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by putting in a small bench or a vase of fresh-cut flowers. Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show Your house needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you never know when your buyer is going to walk through the door. You have to be available whenever they want to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little inconvenient, but it will get your house sold. Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part of it is that you’ll probably get 85% of your money back. It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start envisioning their own style. If you have a little money to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why one? Because when people see one high-end appliance they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates the kitchen. Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house One of the most important things to do when selling your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your stuff – put it in storage. This includes family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes. Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space. Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth

THE MARKET

Linwood: 1a Clive St

DOING A REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION IN WINTER

Yes, everyone is saying sales have slowed down with solicitors saying that contracts coming in are noticeably fewer and the Christchurch City Council LIMS taking only a couple of days. In fact today as I write this there are only 39 LIM applications showing. Cashmere: 75 Valley Road Stunning City Views: Brand new executive home. But there are definitely buyers out there, a lot of them pre-approved and just waiting Collapsed sale, back on the market, be quick! 4 bdrms, 2 bthrms, single gge. Extra parking. to find their new home. It is an excellent See it, love it, get it! Enquiry over $850,000. time to do real estate business if you are buying and selling on the same market. Sunday 2.15 – 2.45pm

Come to an open home or make a time to view.

makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your money back if you do a huge improvement project before you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles, cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.

Affordable, Sizable & Practical: Very tidy 3 dble bdrm home. Modern kitchen, new paint, carpet. Off street parking. Great value for money.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters

It’s not for everyone, but it is an excellent time to sell. There are always buyers in the North New Brighton: 12 Saltaire Street market and winter buyers are usually very Selling $20,000 Below R.V: Reduced to sell now. serious and motivated to be out in all 2/3 bdrms.

Enquiry is usually less which gives you an advantage over $355,000 (RV $375,000). over those who may decide to sell in Spring. Sunday 1 – 1.30pm Viewing a house in winter will give a buyer the opportunity to see how it performs in terms of winter sun, heating and insulation. Some buyers prefer to buy in winter. Presentation is always important inside and out, so do you best to show your home in its very best light. Ensure you have done any small maintenance jobs such as cleaning the guttering or chimney.

Sunday 12 – 12.30pm

You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts of potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody is a dog- or cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the impression that your house is not clean. If you’re planning an open home don’t leave your pets around. Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong real estate agent. Make sure you have an agent who is totally informed. They must constantly monitor the multiple listing service (MLS), know what properties are going on the market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find an agent who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one has many tools to get your house sold.

Do you know what the current value of your home is? Find out, call Trish now for a free appraisal.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up Maximize the light in your home. After location, good light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable.

Trish Lawrence ph 0800 874 745

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets

"Successfully selling real estate city-wide since 1993"

Storage is something every buyer is looking for and can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and cabinets clean and tidy.

Did you know the average time recruiters spend analysing a CV is: 5 to 7 seconds? There are too many myths and false ideas about what your CV should include. Ensure those precious seconds allow you to stand apart from the rest. Make sure your CV is top-notch by avoiding these top 10 CV mistakes. 1. Too focused on Job Duties One of the most common CV mistakes is to turn your CV into a dull list of job duties and responsibilities. Instead you should: • Demonstrate how you made a difference at each company • Provide specific examples of how the company benefited from your performance 2. Objective Statement that is Too General • Many candidates lose their readers from the very beginning of the CV with their objective statement • Consider using a tagline which is a statement of what you do or what your specialty is

5. Listing Personal or Irrelevant Information • Only include your hobbies and interests if they relate to the job • Personal information such as date of birth and marital status don’t need to be included 6. The Layout One of the most effective CV formats is the modified chronological type. Here is the basic layout: • Header (name, address, email address, phone number) • Objective Statement or Tagline • A strong profile section (detailing your experience and skills) • Reverse chronological employment history (nothing past 10-15 years ago) • Education • Only list hobbies/community activities/ memberships if its relevant to the job 7. Not Including a Profile Summary • A profile summary should demonstrate the skill level and experiences directly related to the position • To create a high-impact summary statement, read numerous job adverts to determine what features are important to employers • Write a list of your matching skills, experience, and education. These selling points should be incorporated into the summary.

3. Too Short or Too Long • Don’t try and squeeze everything onto one page because you’ve heard that a CV should never be longer than one page. That’s a myth! • Don’t ramble either, your reader will get bored and give up • Only include information about yourself that Curious to find out the last 3 crucial CV will get you an interview mistakes? Drake Christchurch wants to share the answers with you and help you 4. Use of “I” and “Me” get your next job! • CVs should be concise Call the Team today on (03)-381-3670. • Don’t refer to yourself in first person

Caroline Kellaway with Ian Brook (new President) and Gordon Reid (life member)

RECENT Club Elections has seen long term Club President Caroline Kellaway step down after an impressive 25 years in office. Working Men’s Clubs were traditionally male domains that women were not allowed to join. It was not until the late 80's that rules changed and women were allowed to join Clubs and permitted access to the main drinking bars. Women as Board Members , in particular Club President, was unheard of. That was until 1992 when Caroline Kellaway was appointed President of the Woolston WMC, making her NZ’s first ever female president of a Chartered Club. During her extensive time in office Caroline has worked tirelessly to get the Club to the where it is now. “Keeping the Club spirit alive has always been my main goal, especially following the earthquakes,” said Caroline. “We’re community minded and lost many members through red zoning.

We still contend with bad roads. I’ve worked long and hard to make sure we get things upgraded for our members. I’m pleased to step down with the Club refurbished and a new restaurant.” Aside from decades of devoted involvement with the Woolston Club, Caroline’s resume includes VicePresident of Clubs NZ; Chairperson of Clubs NZ Sports Council; a member of the Burwood-Pegasus Community Board; and is a Justice of the Peace. She has also held roles as a judicial bench JP and NZ Prison Visiting Justice. In 2008 she was awarded an ONZM for services in the community. Caroline says she will remain strongly involved with the Club and has already started her next project compiling and recording the Woolston Club’s history. Former Vice President Ian Brook has been appointed new Club Present. The Woolston Club 43 Hargood Street, Woolston Phone 03 389 7039 www.woolstonclub.co.nz
