Thursday July 13 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THE AMERICA’S Cup parade yesterday was as Kiwi as it gets. About 6000 people braved the savage weather and amongst them was an old fella called Ron Mackie. We’ve got a great pic of Ron meeting Team NZ crew member Joe Sullivan (see page 4). Ron taught Joe how to sail many years ago on the Waimak River. They kept in contact during the regatta in Bermuda via text and yesterday Sullivan spotted Ron in the crowd on Colombo St. When he and the other crew members got of the bus to walk alongside the fans, Sullivan went over and met up with Ron. Ron’s smile says it all. He looks very proud. On pages 6-7, we look at the police district command centre. It’s part of a series we are doing on policing in Canterbury. The DCC is the nerve centre of policing in the region, where incidents and reports are assessed, prioritised and dealt with. Interesting stuff. - Barry Clarke

On the same day in 1971, a record crowd of over 57,000 watched the All Blacks play the Lions at Lancaster Park. On July 11, 1879, the Post Office building in Cathedral Square was completed. On the same day in 1951, the waterfront strike ended. On July 13, 1905, construction of King Edward Barracks began. The building was completed in 25 days. In the absence of a true town hall, it was often the venue for large concerts and civic occasions. On the same day in 1945, severe gales with gusts to 145km/h were recorded in Canterbury. The following day saw a record snowfall of 280mm cover most of city (right). On July 15 to 21, 1979, the D’oyly Carte Opera Company gave performances in the city.

According to EliteSingles’ latest analysis, the average cost of going on a date in the city, which included a mid-range dinner for two, a bottle of wine, two movie tickets and an 8km taxi ride, is $130. Queenstown took the top spot, costing $26 more than the average, at $158. In Auckland, the average cost was $142, while Hamilton was $140. The cheapest was Rotorua and Palmerston North, costing $119. Wellington was $127, and Dunedin’s average was $129.

Rapper’s WW1 tribute Song about conscription with opera singer „„ By Gabrielle Stuart A RAPPER and an opera singer may sound like an unlikely combination, but honouring soldiers who fought in World War 1 has brought them together. Christchurch rapper Solomona Ifopo, aka MC Oblique, and opera singer Madison Nonoa have worked together to write and record a song, Luck of the Draw, about World War 1 conscription. It is part of a World War 1 Centenary project, which asked young artists, musicians and performers to create works inspired by war footage. After submitting a sample, Mr Ifopo said he was asked by the organisers to do a collaboration with Ms Nonoa. He said it came as a surprise at first, but he said she had an incredible voice and had “nailed it” when they met in Wellington last month to record the song with producer Rhombus. “I was really star struck, to be honest, to be working with an opera singer who had performed all over the world. Walking in I thought damn, what am I doing here, I’m so out of my league,” he said. He said he had been very touched by watching footage of the monthly conscription ballot, where between 1916 and 1918 the names of 134,393 New Zealand men were drawn. “I found the process of conscription quite disturbing, because in essence they were handing out death sentences,” he said. Mr Ifopo writes and performs in the evenings and weekends around his day job as a builder. He also organises regular red zone rap battles to promote

Break in weather predicted for weekend „„ By Gabrielle Stuart ALTHOUGH RAIN, wind and even snow are expected today and tomorrow, relief is coming – the forecast is for a sunny weekend. MetService meteorologist Tom Adams said the weather was expected to be patchy today and tomorrow, but on the whole would stay wet, cold and sleety. An 8 deg C high is predicted in Christchurch today and tomorrow, with temperatures expected to drop to 3 deg C tonight and 0 deg C tomorrow night. “In short, I wouldn’t get too excited by patches of sunshine,” he said. But he said the weekend was set to clear up, with sunshine, northerlies and a bit of light cloud predicted. Then more rain was expected late on Sunday or on Monday. He said the cold weather this week was caused by a low which settled over the country.

In Brief PEDESTRIAN KILLED A man has died after being hit by a car on Tuesday night. The crash happened on Huxley St, between Colombo and Burlington Sts, Sydenham, around 9.40pm.

emerging Christchurch hip-hop artists, which have drawn interest from rappers and producers across the world. He said this project became personal, as he dug into his own family history as he was researching for the song. While talking to his grandfather about it, he discovered

his own great-grandfather, Neil McGill, had his name drawn in the ballot – but narrowly escaped having to fight. “He had three kids at the time, but when he was about to get conscripted he had another child. If they had newborns, they could get out of it. So my great-aunty they used to call

“Dad’s war effort”, because she got him out,” he said. The song, which was released on Tuesday, was something he planned to share even with his grandfather, he said. “He’s old as, he doesn’t understand hip-hop. I try not to let him hear it because underground hip-hop can be pretty raw. But I will be showing him this,” he said. •The song, as well as other artistic pieces created as part of the project, can be found at

America’s Cup parade

The Star

Rain, sleet but a very warm welcome About 6000 people braved the freezing rain and sleet to celebrate Emirates Team New Zealand’s America’s Cup win yesterday. Reporter Bridget Rutherford and photographer Martin Hunter went along to capture the action RON MACKIE always knew Joe Sullivan would be a good sailor. He taught the Emirates Team New Zealand cyclist how to sail on the Waimakariri River as a child. And yesterday, the pair reunited during the America’s Cup victory parade through the central city. The 84-year-old travelled from Rangiora, and got the chance to chat with his old student, and get a close look at the Auld Mug. He, along with about 6000 others, braved the freezing conditions and sleet to welcome the team to Christchurch. Mr Mackie, a Waimakariri Sailing Club member who still gets out on the water, said he took Sullivan and his older brother Brayden on a four-day sailing course. “They were quite good little sailors. I have a photo of them at home when they won a club trophy.” During the America’s Cup campaign in Bermuda, the pair had stayed in contact. “He sent a very nice text from Bermuda at the start, and I think it said: ‘We’re a young team, but we

have the right people, in the right place, at the right time, and I think we will improve’,” Mr Mackie said. Emirates Team New Zealand went on to beat Oracle 7-1. Sullivan, a former Olympic gold medal rower, grew up in Christchurch before moving to Picton. He said the reunion with his old coach was “emotional” and “fantastic.” He said Mr Mackie taught him well. “It’s great to see Ron, he’s 84 and still out sailing.” Redwood man Patrick Bennett got to kiss the America’s Cup as it went past and in spite of the chilly conditions, it was “pretty warm.” “I’ve been waiting a long time to see that.” Siblings Angel, 5, and Dustin Shaw, 7, were both excited they got to touch the trophy when helmsman Peter Burling passed through with it. Their mother, Erica Salazar said it was an “amazing experience” for them. Burling said they had received an “amazing reception” but he was finding the weather a bit cold.

Central information hub crucial The Star continues its series on the work police in Canterbury are doing on crime prevention. It runs weekly covering a wide range of topics as police head off trouble before it starts. Gabrielle Stuart reports on the district command centre ALREADY THERE has been a death, a robbery, burglaries, family violence and a breach of a protection order – and it’s only 9am. Outside, it’s still cold, and the city is still sleepy: Footpaths empty, shopkeepers just putting out their open signs. But step through the double doors into the Christchurch Central police station, and the place is abuzz with activity. The Canterbury District Command Centre sits at the back of the station, past the ringing phones in the call centre, past the network of desks and departments, past the officers heading out or returning from patrol. There, Senior Sergeant Roy

where it is happening, and who is responding. Each screen is constantly changing and updating. If the command centre resembles a spaceship, Senior Sergeant Appley is in the captain’s chair. Some of the officers working in the DCC are in jeans and sneakers, but he is fully uniformed: Both with crisp police blues and a serious attitude. He makes the time to talk, but is constantly aware of what is happening around him, and several times takes time out to check on his screens. There are two parts to the job, he said: Prioritising calls, and getting as much information as possible to the officers on the ground. “It’s quite demanding in here, because there’s a lot you have to know and keep your head over. Often you’re in here all day, because it’s so fast-paced you can’t leave. If you drop the ball, someone could be harmed,” he said. This morning there are 164 police “units” available across Canterbury, and it is his job to direct them. By about 9.30am, there have already been 51 active events.

to co-ordinated crime fighting That includes the death – a body found, but not believed to be suspicious. There are officers at crashes, knocking on doors after burglaries or family harm episodes, and tracking down people who haven’t turned up in court. Covering everything was more challenging that morning, he said, as about 20 staff were busy searching the Kate Valley Landfill for clues to the disappearance of Halswell builder Michael McGrath. The computers pinged as events – each call or crime – arrived on the list. Each was labelled from one, most urgent, to four. With each, Senior Sergeant Appley, or one of his officers, would scan the details to see if there was anything useful they could provide from cameras in the area or police files. Last week, they were notified that someone had been robbed by a group of people at the Washington Way Skate Park on Moorhouse Ave. Instantly they were able to bring up and rewind the camera recording from the area, and saw

the robbers getting into a fairly distinctive silver European car. With a description of the car and the direction it was heading, police in the area were able to pull it over and arrest the suspects within minutes. Midway through the morning, Senior Constable Craig Newman stopped by. He spent nine months working in the district command centre, before going back to the beat. He said the information the DCC was able to give was in-

valuable. It had made car chases safer, he said, as police were able to watch through traffic cameras where criminals were heading and circle ahead to intercept them, rather than having to always give chase. Even during more routine work, like a door knock after a burglary, it made a huge difference, Senior Constable Newman said. “That person may have been a victim of three burglaries, or their husband may have died in a

car crash recently. That information can now be given instantly to the police officer who is going to be knocking on their door,” Senior Constable Newman said. On Friday and Saturday nights, a lot of problems started outside bars. “Along St Asaph St, where the road is narrow, there is limited space and taxis often double or triple-parked. It’s a recipe for disaster when intoxicated people are around,” Senior Sergeant Appley said. By regularly checking the cameras, police could see where lines were starting to form outside bars, or where people were starting to gather. They could then send a patrol there before anything escalated and prevent problems before they started. He said many countries in the world were installing police cameras and using them to

monitor and watch suspects to gather evidence of crimes. Although there was a lot of potential to do that, he said New Zealand police were instead focused on helping victims and preventing crime, and the cameras were just another tool. “The most rewarding thing is when you make a difference for someone, and that happens almost daily here,” Senior Sergeant Appley said. That is something which had held true through all the changes he had seen over 32 years as a police officer. He doesn’t mention it, but four years ago he was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for his work in New Brighton after the February 22, 2011, earthquake. “No matter how flash the technology gets, it all comes down to our interactions with people,” he said. “High trust and confidence doesn’t come because you look good in the uniform when you’re out and about. It comes when you handle every dealing well and treat people with respect.”

Woods,Wagner clash over rebuild projects The election is less than three months away and the battle is heating up. Bridget Rutherford reports TWO OF the city’s political heavyweights have squared off, with one accusing the other of not knowing enough about the anchor projects. Labour Wigram MP Megan Woods caught the Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner out during question time in Parliament. Ms Wagner, who is the MP for Christchurch Central, was asked how many anchor projects the Crown was responsible for, and how many had been completed. But she did not give specific numbers. After Dr Woods’ asked her several times for an answer, Ms Wagner listed some of the projects. She said they were progressing well but some were the Crown’s responsibility, and others were not. “The oval was not the Crown’s responsibility but that’s completed, the bus exchange was the Crown’s responsibility and that’s

completed. The Avon Otakaro Corridor is partially completed, the Margaret Mahy Playground is completed,” she said. “The Convention Centre is on track, to be announced recently, and the Metro Sports is under way. The only anchor project that is not completed, not on the way at this stage, is the multi-use stadium, which is the responsibility of the city council.” The stoush happened in Parliament last week. Ms Wagner believes Dr Woods had been

mischievous about how the questions were put to her. Under parliamentary rules, the first question put by an MP to another must be sent in advance so a response can be prepared when the matter is raised during formal question time. Any supplementary questions that might be raised have to relate to the original question. Ms Wagner said the original question put to her by Dr Woods was about the postponement of the Canterbury Earthquake,

Learn, Prepare, Act Symposium. During question time, Dr Woods put a supplementary question, asking Ms Wagner how many anchor projects the Crown has responsibility for and how many had been completed. “I don’t know why the member (Dr Woods) chose to stray from the primary question but I saw it as an opportunity to provide the House with an update on the progress of the anchor projects.” But Dr Woods told The Star yesterday that was “simply untrue” and given the question line, Ms Wagner should have been prepared. Dr Woods said one of the reasons the symposium was postponed was because of the lack of progress on the anchor projects and central city, so it did relate. “The answer should have been two numbers. And the fact she couldn’t answer that, in spite of being asked three times, is concerning to me,” she said. “Frankly, I’m gobsmacked the minister doesn’t carry around that information in her head – how many anchor projects the Crown has responsibility for and how many they’ve completed.” During the stoush in Parliament, Dr Woods asked: “Is it the

And for the record, it’s 10 and only two completed.” Replied Ms Wagner: “Absolutely not, what we were concerned about was that we could effectively reflect on the whole process of recovery, rebuild and regeneration.” •Columns, pages 18 & 19

Dad’s punt wins Crusader visit „„ By Julia Evans MICHAEL STIRLING is officially the coolest parent. At least in the eyes of the pupils from St Joseph’s School in Papanui who received a visit from Crusaders players. Mr Stirling won a special visit from players David Havili, Pete Samu and Seta Tamanivalu as part of the Placemakers Punt for Prizes competition. During round eight of the Super Rugby competition, he correctly picked all seven of the games and was put into a final draw – which he won. “It was a bit of sharp shooting,” he said. So he nominated his daughter Taylor’s school to receive the visit. “The younger ones appreciate the players, they look up to them as heroes,” Mr Stirling said. The Crusaders hosted a mini coaching session as well as dishing out a few autographs and a selfie or two. Which more than paid off. “I’ve been told she’s pretty good at tackling now,” Mr Stirling said.

TACKLE: Crusaders fullback David Havili is tackled by St Joseph’s School pupils.

Placemakers Canterbury marketing manager James Munro said the company is thrilled to be able to offer such unique and memorable prizes to rugby fans. “To see the excitement on the kids’ faces at St Joseph’s was really special and I know they will be talking about the visit to their mates for a very long time,” Mr Munro said. • To enter head to

Social media used to dispel crash rumour „„ By Andrew King POLICE HAVE used social media to quash rumours a serious crash between Barrys Bay and the Hilltop Tavern on Sunday was caused by a foreign driver. Senior Constable Anita Osborne posted on the Akaroa Buy Sell and Exchange and Community Notice Board Facebook page: “Before there is any speculation about tourist drivers and bad motorbikes, not that I expect anyone would jump to conclusions would they, the driver of the car admits driver error and was very cooperative – and he lives in Canterbury.” A 31-year-old motorcyclist suffered lifethreatening injuries when he collided with a car on the Christchurch Akaroa Rd at about 4pm. He suffered an “open

book pelvis fracture” intensive care paramedic for Westpac Rescue Mike McLintock said. The driver of the car was uninjured. Akaroa-based Senior Constable Osborne said yesterday she put the post up to let the locals know what was going on, but worded it the way she has to stop people from jumping to conclusions. The road was closed for about three hours after the crash. Senior Constable Osborne thanked emergency services in her post. “It was full on for a while there and everyone was amazing,” she posted.​ There have been a spate of crashes recently in the Akaroa area. “There have been two drink driver related crashes and three driver error crashes,” she said.

Maddie home but no health answers yet „„ By Gabrielle Stuart MADDIE COLLINS is home again, after a two-week trip to a United States hospital to explore potential treatment. But many questions still remain unanswered over the health of the 13-year-old from West Melton. Maddie and her family travelled to the The John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, hoping the treatment offered there would make it easier to find a replacement kidney. Maddie has been on dialysis for kidney failure most of her life, but learnt last month that the dialysis was putting so much strain on her heart, she was at risk of a heart attack. That made finding a replacement kidney more urgent. In 2012, her father, Adam Collins, donated one of his kidneys to Maddie, but her body rejected it. Maddie’s bother, Tom, and sister, Georgia, were both tested while in the US to see if they might be a match for Maddie. In an online update, Maddie’s mother, Sarah Manson Collins, said the family was now waiting for test results before they could

She said the doctors believed there were several treatment options, but it came at a cost – she said the cost of the treatment, which they initially estimated at $350,000, could almost double. Givealittle pages have already raised more than $90,000 for Maddie, and tickets for a fundraising night later this month have already sold out.

Cops Facebook page: Be nice


WARNING: Canterbury Police have reminded people bullying comments on its Facebook page will not be tolerated. ​

IN SPITE of many using the Canterbury Police Facebook page to make bullying remarks, at times it can also be a place for police to show their sense of humour. On Friday, police posted a photo of a booze bus, saying officers would be out and about ensuring people did not drink and drive. One man commented: “What streets will you be setting up on in case people want to stop by and say gidday?” Canterbury Police responded: “We’ll be starting at Nicetry Street and then we’ll be moving to Betterlucknexttime Avenue. Hope to see you there!” In 2014, Samuel Lake went viral when he taunted Canterbury Police under his own wanted mugshot on its Facebook page. Lake’s comment said: “I need to get a new mugshot.” Police responded: “Come see us and will arrange at no cost”. In June, police posted a photo of vintage-looking skis which had been recovered in the hope of returning them to their owner. “Think Ernest Shackleton may have lost them on his mission to the South Pole,” one cheeky poster said.

should “try Eastgate KFC” to find a woman who had warrants out for arrest, another described a man as appearing “straight from the Planet of the Apes movie”. Another comment said one man showed a resemblance to Voldemort. Another man whose photo was posted on the page drew a wave of comments and puns relating to his left ear, because half of it had been removed somehow. “He’s going to get an ear full when his mother finds out about this,’’ one comment said. Canterbury University associate professor and social media expert, Ekant Veer, said it was great police had deemed the behaviour unacceptable. Hopefully people would see the page was not there for public humiliation, he said. “It’s not new, by any means – we used to have public floggings and criminals put in stocks so people can throw rotten food at them. This is the modern day equivalent.” But Dr Veer said he worried having more moderation could take up too much police time and resource.

It comes after complaints police Facebook pages had become hubs for bullying and trolling, sparking calls for better moderation. Last week, Canterbury Police wrote on its Facebook page that it would not tolerate bullying, abuse, harassment or trolling on the page. “If you do post comments like this they will be deleted – and you may be blocked if you do it repeatedly,” the post said. The post was well received, with many commending police for issuing the warning. Senior Sergeant Stewart Munro said, given the large number of comments across all police pages, it was not always possible to monitor and moderate every post. He said the police public affairs team helped moderate them and hide anything racist, sexist or discriminatory. There was also a moderation filter. But

Stopping Chch from becoming a Chinese traffic engineer Ming Bai has spent three years in Christchurch studying how far people commute and what authorities should invest if they want to get people out of their cars. He spoke to Gabrielle Stuart MORE THAN 21 million people live in Beijing – about 36 times the population of Canterbury packed into an area a third of the size. It is unofficially known as the capital of traffic jams, and has had 50-lane-wide superhighways in gridlock. Vehicles are believed to be responsible for about 30 per cent of the city’s smog and air pollution, which a United States study estimated kills about 4000 people in China a day. Traffic engineer Ming Bai’s task was finding a solution to the problem. The Chinese Government had committed to reducing emissions, and Mr Bai was in a team of people trying to figure out how to do it: How to get people out of their vehicles. That was three years ago. In 2014, he moved to Christchurch to undertake a PhD at

Canterbury University. His goal was to create a formula to show what kind of transport investment would be most effective in getting people to use cycleways or public transport. While working on the Beijing project, he had been frustrated by the lack of information, he said. City planners had to decide where to place things like train systems, cycleways or bus routes, and where they would be most effective. But they were often based on the population of each area, or used surveys which were unreliable and expensive. “If you want to build a cycleway or public transport system, you need to know the travel amounts and that has nothing to do with the city population. It’s about how many people would have to travel short distance amounts, or long travel distance

gridlock city A database is also kept with information from each vehicle’s warrant of fitness, recording the odometer readings and the owner addresses. They can be averaged to show how far vehicles in the area have travelled. Using that data, he developed a formula to calculate approximately how far the average resident in suburbs across Christchurch travel. Overall, he found Christchurch was an ideal cycling city, he said, as almost 70 per cent of people lived within 5-10km of their work. A shorter travel distance meant investment in cycle lanes was likely to be more worthwhile, while a longer distance meant buses or trains would be a better investment, he said. Going suburb to suburb, he found people in the east of the city were likely to travel a lot further than people in the west. He found the average person in Lyttelton travelled further than people in Yaldhurst – 16km compared with 10km respectively – in spite of the fact Lyttelton was closer to the central city – 12km away compared to 14km. He hoped local authorities would be able to use his tool to help shape

decisions like where to prioritise bus stop locations or cycleways. His research is almost finished, and he originally planned to take what he learned back to Beijing. But, although he still hoped his work could be used to improve transport there, he said he had grown to love Christchurch and would like to stay longer-term. “Christchurch is quiet and beautiful, and people are very nice and friendly. The only thing is the transport system is a bit slow compared to other cities, so I hope I could find a good opportunity to help,” he said.

Viewpoint Setting new goals WE’RE officially past the mid-way point of 2017 and the school holidays are here again — this year is flying by. Many families will be taking a break from their regular routine with travel, holiday programmes or perhaps some quality time at home. For me, mid-year is an opportunity to reflect, access and set some new goals. So the Monitoring Greater Christchurch Regeneration June 2017 report, released late last week, was perfectly timed. It summarises regeneration progress by collating and analysing data in six key areas — demographics, the economy, infrastructure, well-being, housing and tourism. When I took on the role as Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration, I made a commitment to keeping the community as up-to-date as possible by regularly and proactively releasing information. This report is part of that commitment and provides a clear and comprehensive overview of our regeneration to date. Monitoring our progress in this way ensures all critical issues are noted and addressed by

Nicky Wagner the relevant agencies in a timely manner. It also lets us know if we’re heading in the right direction and helps us plan ahead or make any necessary changes. As a city and a region we’ve faced many challenges over the last six-and-half-years but much of the data shows we’re making progress. We’re taking advantage of opportunities to develop and grow with new, innovative ideas. As I wrote last week, we’re also making some progress on the future of Christ Church Cathedral, with a Government offer of reinstatement. It’s by no means in the bag, but it’s a strong offer with crossparty support for legislation. The next six months will be very important for Christchurch. We have a lot on the go and there are more exciting projects to come. If you are taking a break these school holidays, I wish you a safe and enjoyable time. •Nicky Wagner is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

The cleanliness of the Lyttelton Tunnel is being questioned, with Lyttelton residents wanting more done to keep it clean Jane McCulla – The tunnel is a disgrace. I have used it regularly over the past seven years, and I remember it being much cleaner before the quakes. It has got really dirty and unkempt, I honestly think it needs to be cleaned more often. The ceiling is made of yellow tiles but it is just black now. A real shame. I say fix the cleaning machine or buy a new one. It’s not good for drivers going through breathing in the dust and grime . . . probably carcinogenic, never mind the look of it . . . not very inviting coming in to Lyttelton. Tony Carrabes – I think it’s the best maintained tunnel in the world because every weekday night the tunnel is completely closed to traffic for maintenance.  Peter Thompson – Well, for those that don’t remember, they used to have cleaning crews for the tunnel way back in time. I believe they used to have trucks with brushes on going through every few days to keep the tiles clean.

Tracy Journée – I’ve lived in Lyttelton for 23 years. Of course I have noticed how dirty the tunnel walls have been since the February and June 2011 earthquakes, who hasn’t. Clearly there has been a breach in the tunnel lining in places that has not been properly addressed yet, maybe never will be. Perhaps if cleaning was more frequent it would have a better chance of keeping up with the grime. However, if extra cleaning schedules went ahead at this point in time, this would also mean more tunnel delays. This would be just unbearable as we currently share the tunnel with so many port tankers and other dangerous goods vehicles that cannot do their original

route around through Evans Pass to Sumner. The regular and constant delays that these vehicles have caused over the years have worn me out. Just recently there was a half-hour delay with the breakdown of a logging truck in the tunnel. I believe it has been poor form and poor planning from the port company and our city council to have not fast tracked this important alternate route out of Lyttelton through Evans Pass. So, while I couldn’t agree more that our once shiny and white Lyttelton Tunnel looks more like the armpit of a gorilla on steroids most days, I would also like to plead, please, no more delays in our tunnel until Evans Pass is safe for traffic again.

Clear choice this election

A new parking meter in Cathedral Square issues a different kind of ticket - a Christchurch secret to explore Melanie Whitworth – That’s so funny to watch people’s reactions. I’ll have to check it out. Jacinta Roosing – Might have to look at this in the school holidays if the weather is great. Karen Thomas – Superb idea – all cities should do this! Judy Tacón – Brilliant. In her column last week, Mayor Lianne Dalziel said not all roads were ‘eligible’ to be fixed under the cost sharing agreement and the SCIRT programme.

FUN: Abigail Neave and her Beca workmate Lisa Mace test out the different parking meter in Cathedral Square. ​

Priorities council. Fix the roads first then put in all your fancy wish list stuff!

Tania Salm – Pavements aren’t eligible? Thanks, Government. That’s just peachy for those with mobility issues. I’d hate to think how someone in a wheelchair, on crutches, or with a vision impairment navigates the uneven pavements in our city. I’m guessing often they don’t. How to exclude whole parts of the population from public life!

Melissa McCutchan – I find this frustrating as some roads have been ripped up several times. If it was only ripped up once and everything put in at the same time then more work could have been done around the city.

Kelly Monk – So some roads are not eligible. Could be because the stupid council is wasting money on fancy cycle lanes that hardly anyone uses.

Aileen Kimber – Money spent on the stupid statue in the river should have gone on roads and footpaths. •More Rise Up, p21

THERE ARE various ways that political parties make new policy and come up with fresh ideas. Sometimes it is looking to research and to good examples from overseas, but sometimes it is from what we politicians see on the ground. For me, policies that respond to what I am hearing in my electorate office, on doorsteps and out and about are really important. It’s this view from the ground which has driven Labour’s families and winter heating packages this week. When we saw the measures that the National Government put up in the Budget we knew that these were not what were most needed. THey may have been dressed up as helping low and middle income families but the reality is that these tax cuts will benefit those on the highest incomes the most. We’ve come up with an alternative package that delivers real change and assistance where it is most needed. Under Labour’s targeted families package more than 70 per cent of families with children will receive more than they would under National’s

tax cuts. We are also putting in place measures to make sure that people can afford to heat their homes and keep warm in winter. THe winter energy payment will be $700 for couples receiving superannuation or a main benefit (this will be $450 for single people). Around one million people will benefit. THis election there’s a clear choice. By not adopting National’s tax cuts we have freed up funding for a targeted package that delivers more to families with kids and people in need, and costs less than $900 million a year. Labour’s priority is investing in services and boosting the incomes of low and middle income families, not an election tax bribe aimed at those at the top. We’ve got to address mental health and housing and make a real difference in the lives of Kiwis, and now is not the time for tax cuts. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

David Lloyd – The present council administration is out of control trying to manage citizens’ rights. It is way over the top. Stick to your core responsibilities council. Fix the roads, footpaths, sewerage and waster water systems, tidy parks and gardens. When you have achieved success at these core issues perhaps then you can think about social engineering.

I SPENT most of my late teens and 20s living inside the four avenues and, since becoming mayor, I have dreamed of moving back. I love inner-city living. Everything is so close at hand. I love Hagley Park and the Botanic Gardens. I love being able to walk down to a movie theatre or to see a show. I love the restaurants and cafes that have sprung up and some of my old favourites too. I love to be able to dash down to the shops you don’t get in the malls to buy something special for a birthday present. I miss being in the heart of the city. More than 2700 people responded to the city council’s Life in Christchurch survey, which was commissioned to gauge people’s views on the central city. The majority of respondents reported that they had visited the central city in the past 12 months, with more than half visiting for non-work purposes. Overall, the results indicated people are feeling reasonably positive about progress and value the contribution the central city makes to life in Christchurch.

Lianne Dalziel

But for me there was a standout set of statistics – all to do with living in the central city. For me this is what will bring life and vitality to the city. With only six per cent of respondents actually living in the central city now and only another two per cent actively looking to move into the area, we still have a long way to go. Close to 30 per cent were considering moving in the future, but the majority of those indicated they would wait for the rebuild to finish. One of the main concerns people had about a move to the central city was the lack of affordable housing options. We have already exempted inner-city residential developments from development contributions, but I think we need to do more and I’ll be working with the Development Forum to do just that. •To ask Ms Dalziel a question, email mayor@ Put Reader’s Question in the subject line.

Freshly roasted coffee draws customers to city cafe Many of Christchurch’s discerning coffee drinkers will by now have discovered the Magnitude Café & Roastery in Tuam Street. Established in June 2016, Magnitude offers excellent coffee freshly roasted on the premises and brewed by their three expert baristas, as well as a choice selection of delicious café-style food, made on the premises, for lunch and morning and afternoon teas. In addition to freshly made sandwiches, wraps and sweet treats, the menu features delicious hot potatoes, which are baked in a King Edward original potato baker and served with a choice of herbs. The café itself has an interesting pedigree. It was the brainchild of David Humphrey, the previous owner of Dunedin’s iconic coffee house, Stewarts, which was

~ Come in for a coffee ~ ~ Stay for the food ~ ~ Enjoy the atmosphere ~

established by the late Tom Stewart in 1956. An RAF Pilot, Tom flew Lancaster bombers in the famous Dam Buster Squadron 617. Having been shot down over Germany and taken prisoner of war, he was repatriated back to Dunedin where, with friends and his English-born bride, talked about the wonderful coffee houses, commonly called the ‘penny universities’, which they had frequently visited in England. The suggestion arose that Tom should open one here in New Zealand, and so in 1956 Stewarts Coffee House in Dunedin was born. It was the first of many. In 1975, Tom retired and sold the coffee house to David, who continued the established tradition of roasting coffee beans on the premises. David also saw the opportunity to supply top-quality, freshly

roasted coffee to other establishments, and soon had a large clientele of discerning cafes and restaurants buying his coffee. After selling the business in 2008, he found he had time on his hands and he missed the people he had been dealing with. So he bought a building in Tuam St, Christchurch, fitted it out as a roastery and cafe, found a suitable name, Magnitude, and established what today is a destination cafe providing what many agree is the best and freshest coffee available. David's son-in-law, Gerard van Rooy, learnt to roast coffee whilst working for Stewarts and is an expert in obtaining perfection. Apart from enjoying a cup on the premises, many customers buy a coffee to take away and enjoy at home or in the office.

Tim McInnes

Film festival brings the heavy subject of Christchurch film director Tim McInnes’ documentary will feature in next month’s New Zealand International Film Festival. He spoke to Bridget Rutherford about filming alternative education youths over the course of the year and seeing them grow up Tim, can you tell me about your new documentary, One Island of Good? It’s a big one. It’s not a lighthearted film. It’s a documentary about a heavy subject. Nobody knows what alternative education is. When we’ve asked people in the past they give us a glazed-over look and say: ‘Yeah I think so’ which means they have no idea. It’s a place for young people to go once they’ve been expelled, they are under the age of 16, which makes them a ward of the state. Legally, they have to be supervised and they go to alternative education. YMCA chief executive Josie Ogden Schroeder approached me about a project that involved the street art at the YMCA. But as we kept talking I think she realised there was an opportunity to go a bit bigger than giving kids some street art lessons – to tell more of the story. Alternative education providers

are funded to a level, and they deal with some of the most time-consuming students in the education system. They haven’t succeeded in mainstream schools. The Ministry of Education doesn’t really have any interest in doing that much with them. So long story short, it turned into a documentary where we would follow them for 12 months, and part of that was a trip to Nepal so we could share their experience where they could relate to another culture that had a similar experience with earthquakes. And we thought hopefully down the track, we could see whether there was any positive change. The YMCA funded it and got in behind it. When did the filming take place? We filmed from December 2015, to December 2016. We did a year of filming and six months of post production. We were filming every week.

It was a massive commitment. We needed that in order to gain the trust of the people we were filming. On the trip, we

gave them a camera because we wanted them to be able to tell their own stories. Some of those were pretty colourful, so

an awful lot of footage never made the cut because there aren’t enough bleep buttons to fill what they said.

alternative education to the screen It’s not like a normal school, where they would all turn up. Here, you could turn up and there was literally one person in the class that day. Other days the class would be full but nobody was prepared to talk to you, while other days everybody wanted to talk to you. The staff were very accommodating. Do you think you saw a positive change for them over the year? I’m not a psychologist, so I can’t make any meaningful comment on if they had any positive long term outcomes. But over the course of 18 months they’ve just grown up. Some started as 14-year-olds and now they’re 16. There are massive changes on a monthly basis. At the time we finished, there were a couple of students we didn’t know their whereabouts. Others have gone back to mainstream school or gained employment. Did you get to know them quite well? Yes and no, they only have to stay until they are 16. If a student was there for three months and turned 16, they were off. That’s one of the issues, people coming and going all the time. It ain’t easy.

JOURNEY: One Island of Good filmed alternative education students over a year, including during a trip to Nepal.

Why did you think it was so important to showcase alternative education? We were approached to make the project by the YMCA. Josie had been making a lot of noise about it and getting nowhere. It was up to me to put it into a format where it was going to be picked up by the film festival. And we were really lucky. About four months in I had no idea whether we were going to get a film out of it or not. I think the cause was worthy. Some of

the old ways of thinking is to kick their arses and tell them to sort it out. This film tries really hard to not be left or right. It tries to say if you don’t look after everyone you’re going to have problems down the track. Four or five months in, that was the point you don’t just give up because it’s a bit hard. That’s part of the ethos of the film. Did you always expect to have it screened at the film festival? That was goal number one. It was a pretty ambitious goal.

There’s no point in making something like this if no one’s going to see it. It’s never going to be Spiderman. It’s got to be a film which is worth watching. Where will it will be screened? It will premier at the Isaac Theatre Royal. So it will screen in Christchurch, then in Wellington, and it may go to Dunedin, depending on their schedule. And after that, who knows? Would you say this is the hardest project Ruffell Productions has done? I would say it’s probably the hardest. Harley, my business partner, said it was probably the most worthwhile thing we’ve done. The Children’s Commissioner Andrew Beescroft, who features in it, said this work isn’t for the faint-hearted. And this would have consumed your life for the last 18 months, but what do you like to do in your spare time? I don’t have spare time, I really don’t. My down time is very much for me and my family. I just try and unplug. We’ve had two documentaries in two festivals this year, One Island of Good, and Delaney Davidson: Devil In The Parlour,

which was at the Edge Festival. How did you get into the industry? I started filming in 2001. I was behind the camera living in Nelson for a couple of years. I was working filming on fishing boats down in South Westland on 42ft boats and on 1000 footers with helicopters on them. I was filming for Rough Fishing, it was a bit like The Deadliest Catch but the New Zealand version of it. I ended up picking up a job literally wrapping cables and getting lunch for the crew in Christchurch back in 2003. Then in 2004 I came back to Christchurch and managed to get work for Ruffell Productions. I didn’t think I would buy the business how many years later. I also worked in the UK producing and directing reality, factual based TV documentaries. Then in 2009 I came back and two days before the first earthquake I bought a house. In 2012 bought the business. •The New Zealand International Film Festival will run from August 3-20. For more information and screenings, visit https://www.nziff.

News Lost seal pup faces off morning motorists

„„ By Andrew King COMMUTERS ON Fitzgerald Ave had a surprise on Wednesday morning – a seal pup sitting in the middle of the road. A motorist phoned emergency services and Woolston firefighters came and ushered it back into the nearby Avon River at 7.15am. According to people on Facebook, it caused a bit of a distraction. “All the cars around me had to swerve and brake to avoid it. Be careful if driving that way,” one person said. A fire communications spokesman said it would have been “one hell of a sight” first thing in the morning. “We were not expecting to get that call like that,” he said. The Department of Conservation was notified, a police spokesman said. Police would monitor the situation in case the pup returns.

City firm’s nuclear waste link

„„ By Dane Ambler CHRISTCHURCH technology company ARANZ Geo is helping with the global challenge of safely disposing of nuclear waste. ARANZ Geo’s Leapfrog 3D geological modelling software has been used by Finnish spent nuclear fuel disposal company Posiva to understand and manage geological risk for the construction of a final disposal facility for spent nuclear fuel. The software enables geologists to model geology at the nuclear repository site by using “CAT scan-like” interactive 3D modelling, said chief executive Shaun Maloney (right). “Our technology allows them to identify natural hazards. You need a deep understanding of the geology using IT and algorithms. We are using medical-grade 3D modelling which is remarkably detailed,” Mr Maloney said. “It’s one of the biggest challenges of our time. The safe disposal of radioactive waste is so important to solving a global problem. Our technology can readily tackle the magnitude and complexity of geological modelling to identify and man-

age geology that is suitable for long-term storage.” The complex mapping requires accurate geological understanding based on the latest informa-

tion, used in a very transparent way and shared across all project stakeholders, said Posiva’s research manager, structural geologist Jussi Mattila.

“Leapfrog allows our geology team to handle numerous inputs of disparate data types, and comprehend the impact in dynamic 3D models to gain an accurate picture of the geology.” Finland is leading the way with their project for a high-level geological repository. There are now 449 nuclear power plants in more than 30 countries, which generate more than 10 per cent of the world’s electricity production. ARANZ Geo is contributing globally to a wide variety of other mining, civil, environmental and energy industry projects, including geothermal energy, hydro dams, transport tunnels, mining, water quality and resource management projects. From a small Christchurchbased research company that employed 20 people in 2010, ARANZ’s revenue was increasing by 25 per cent every year, Mr Maloney said. “We’re taking on dozens of challenging projects in over 30 countries from our global headquarters in New Zealand, and 13 other offices around the world; that’s what gets our 184 people out of bed every morning.” – NZ Herald

Flowers brighten the gloom of winter NOW IN the depth of winter, we are experiencing regular, heavy frosts. Soils are wet and cold, winds are chilly and we’ve even had snow. However, the gloom of winter is brightened by the appearance of blooming azaleas, camellias, early flowering rhododendrons and early flowering cherries. It’s an excellent time to plan your summer garden as spring is just around the corner. It’s harvest time for those winter maturing vegetables that were planted in late summer/autumn. Veges to harvest in July include artichoke (Jerusalem), broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbages, cauliflowers, carrots, celery, leeks, lettuce, parsnips, silver beet, spinach and swedes. Continue to spread compost around maturing vegetables to help with excess water and improve the soil. Inspect your vegetable plants regularly for snails – they appear to become more cold-hardy every year. Where possible, prepare the soil for spring plantings, digging to a depth of 200mm and adding compost as you go. Ensure it is mixed in well. Winter flowering annuals should now be providing masses of colour in your gardens and containers. Remove dead flowers to encourage

continuous blooming throughout winter. Flowering winter annuals include; ageratum, calendulas, cineraria, cornflower, nemesia, pansies, poppies, primulas, snapdragon, stock and sweet pea. Top up existing plantings with ‘potted colour’ annuals that have been grown to the flowering stage. Complete pruning of deciduous fruit trees and spray with copper oxychloride to prevent fungal diseases reappearing in spring. Grapes and kiwifruit can also be pruned. Garden centres and nurseries now have new season fruit trees in stock. Plan your purchase carefully. Part of your fruit tree selection should be to ensure you have a year-round supply of fresh fruit. You can easily do this by planting a few varieties that crop at different times of the year. In warmer areas, a variety of citrus are now ripening, including mandarins, lemons, limes, grapefruit and early oranges. Last plantings of strawberries should be completed this month. Garden centres are bursting with new stock of a wide range of ornamental trees and shrubs. July is a very safe month for planting. Ensure your planting sites are well prepared with the addition of compost and have adequate drainage. Pop in a planting tab when

planting your trees/shrubs to give them the best start. Plan out what and where you will plant. Check the heights that plants will grow to avoid overcrowding in future years. July is probably the main month for pruning roses throughout the country as the plants are now dormant. Don’t be afraid to prune your roses quite hard as rose bushes are increasingly resilient. Spread fresh compost around the base of the bushes. One week after pruning, spray with lime sulphur or a copper compound such as copper oxychloride to ward off fungal diseases (do not mix these sprays together), then three or four days later, apply a horticultural spray to kill off any overwintering pests (again do not mix with copper). Garden hygiene is very important with roses so remove any dead leaves or diseased wood from the ground. Remove these from the property as they can harbour overwintering fungal diseases and re-infect your plants come spring. Don’t forget about your houseplants in winter. Try not to overwater them. Many only require water once a week or fortnight. A light misting of foliage with warm water stops leaves from drying in warm HARVEST: It’s time to eat those winter vegetables. indoor conditions.

BRIGHT: Flowering rhododendrons should now be in full bloom.

Theatre/Arts Teacher joins former students’ cast „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding WHEN JULIET ReynoldsMidgley first heard her former students were creating their own theatre company, she jumped on board to help out right away. Having taught theatre entrepreneurs Sophie Petersen and Keeneth Love at the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art, she thought it would be great to take part in their new company’s first production. Reynolds-Midgley, 44, will star in So Keen Productions’ debut show Songs for a New World. She continues to teach at the NASDA. She described Petersen and Love’s new company as bringing a youthful energy to the arts scene. “They are making a splash,” she said. The spectrum of music which the show challenges its performers to sing – from gospel-style to jazz – and the fact Songs for a New World is rarely-staged in the city, is what drew her in to the part. “I have loved the songs for a very long time . . . each song is so beautifully crafted. It really is a snapshot of someone’s life,”

FIRST SHOW: Juliet Reynolds-Midgley (second from left) with fellow cast members Sophie Petersen, Nick Hollamby and Ben Robertson from So Keen Productions.

Reynolds-Midgley said. The abstract musical is a collection of songs themed around “the moment of decision”. “It is the human condition – how we deal with relationships, adversity, and how we just laugh at things and bring humour to it,” she said. In her role as Woman 2, Reynolds-Midgley will sing four solos designed to be sung by four different women of the same age but from different time periods in history. “It could be the same woman in a variety of different situations,” she said. Born in Surrey, England, Reynolds-Midgley moved to New Zealand to study jazz at Music Arts – based at the former Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology – in 1999 after her parents decided to retire in the area. It was there she met her husband Gwyn Reynolds, who is now head of the Music Arts school at Ara Institute of Canterbury. Growing up, she had no escape from the musical realm. Her father Vernon Midgley was a broadcaster and singer at the

BBC, performing in many fulllength operas on its Radio 3 station. Reynolds-Midgley’s aunty, Maryetta Midgley, broadcasted regularly on BBC’s Radio 2 and appeared frequently in The Good Old Days on BBC television. Reynolds-Midgley’s mother and grandfather were also opera singers, while her grandmother was a pianist. She was cast into the limelight at a young age first performing in the CBS recording of South Pacific with Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Mandy Patinkin and Sarah Vaughan. She appeared as a soloist in her early 20s with the BBC Concert Orchestra for Radio 2 in a celebration of her father broadcasting for 25 years. “Just being put in front of people in a high-stake situation at that age, you soon learn some really good skills,” she said. •Songs for a New World, originally written and composed on Broadway by Jason Robert Brown, will run until Sunday at The Great Hall: The Arts Centre of Christchurch.

Fire-breather’s journey from warming up Crusaders fans to the stage „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding LEARNING TO breath fire could be seen as a daunting way to get into the city’s theatre scene. But that’s how Woolston’s Aaron Boyce, 48, debuted on the stage, blowing fire for the former Christchurch Drama Centre’s show Linnaeus Prince of Flowers. “Somebody said to me ‘do you want to be a fire breather?’ And I said I am willing to learn,” he said. Nearly 20 years down the track, Boyce may not be breathing flames in his latest show but he will play a key role in Top

Dog Theatre’s latest show Up ‘N’ Under by John Godber. Set in England, the show is based around an ex-professional rugby league player called Arthur (Tom Trevella), who bets his life savings he can train a team to beat the undefeated Cobblers Arm. Boyce has two roles in the show. He plays Reg Welsh, a member of the Cobblers Arm, and amateur league player Steve, who helps form the team to take down the Cobblers Arm side. He described Steve as “flamboyant” and a “bit of a lad” while Reg Welsh is mature and


well-to-do, with a bit of coin behind him. He said Steve is basically the comic relief in the

show. Taking part in the show was a reunion for Boyce who first performed with fellow actors Tom Trevella and Dan Crossen in the Top Dog Theatre production The Merchant of Venice in 2005. Since his debut as a fire breather, Boyce has performed with a variety of theatre companies, including Showbiz

Christchurch and Riccarton Players. In spite of burning himself the odd time, Boyce still enjoys breathing fire on occasion. In 1996, when Boyce was fireblowing at a Crusaders game, he suffered minor burns and loss of hair and eyebrows. “I blew straight into a nor’wester and the flames just came straight back at me,” he said. •Up ‘N’ Under runs at the Lyttelton Arts Factory until July 22.

Showcasing culture and cuisine

beds of ice like necklaces or woven baskets brimming with fresh chestnuts, the culinary offerings are a triumph of food art. All of the fresh fish is packaged, so it doesn’t smell. Grilled squid, tempura, rice balls… even the most humble of items are royally displayed like treasures. The signage left

me completely baffled, but most shops are only too happy to let you graze on free samplings. Tatsuya’s advice? Try everything — it won’t kill you. Some of the market shops are old-timers, like Uchida, which has been selling pickled vegetables here, like eggplants, radish and pumpkin, for 80 years. Miki Keiran is famed for its fluffy dashi maki (omelette) made with kelp stock. We snacked our way through the market with hearty, voracious intent, sampling hamo (daggertooth conger eel), fried fish cakes, yuba sashimi and omusubi (high-quality rice balls) and peanut rice crackerballs! We sampled sake in a shop run by the same family across 18 generations! And then

there’s the green tea, iconic of Kyoto. Matcha powder is used to make the tea and Matcha mania has transformed Kyoto’s confectionary, with a stunning array of Matcha-laden sweets, including mochi and jellies. Tatsuya also ushered us into Nishiki Tenmangu Shrine, a gorgeous little shrine that is dedicated to the Shinto god of learning. We noticed students popping in, to ring bells, clap hands and pray for good grades or to pass a test. The shrine is more than a thousand years old! With more than 1600 Buddhist temples and 400 Shinto shrines, Kyoto’s cultural reverence runs deep. A superb accommodation option is the Kyoto Tokyu Hotel (above), which embodies the refined charm and traditional design qualities of Kyoto throughout its property. Centrally located in the old city, the hotel upholds the spirit of miyabi, an aesthetic ideal akin to isolated elegance. There’s a restful, serene ambience throughout the hotel, accentuated by a glorious waterfall garden in the central courtyard. The staff, as you’d expect, are incredibly gracious, warm and attentive. Featuring sleek, sophisticated décor inspired by nature, Kyoto Tokyu Hotel offers an authentic flavour of Japanese hospitality, with all of the creature comforts and luxuries you’d expected from an upscale hotel. Be sure to dine at Kazahana,

which exudes a nostalgic ambience with its classic Kyoto specialities. Offering all day dining, including a sterling buffet breakfast, Kazahana features an open kitchen with chefs cooking before your eyes. Kyoto Tokyu is a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts.

„„ By Mike Yardley IN STARK contrast to Tokyo’s big-city bling and buzz, Kyoto is where to head if you want to draw deeply from Japan’s cultural well and its commanding showcase of traditional cuisine. A sure-fire way to immerse yourself in the sheer magnificence of Kyoto’s foodie scene is to join an expertly guided tour. I enlisted the specialists at Japan Wonder Travel and joined their Nishiki FooDrink Tour. My three hour exploratory began in the heart of Kyoto’s shopping district on Shijo-dori, lined with luxury boutiques and elegant department stores, where immaculately coiffured women are attired in kimonos. Running parallel with Shijodori, a block back, is the showstopping foodie mecca of Nishiki St, home to the 400-year-old Nishiki Market. This vast and venerable covered emporium, which stretches for 400-long metres, is understandably acclaimed as the kitchen of Kyoto. Before we plunged head-first into this market frenzy, bursting at the seams with 130 specialist stores, our guide Tatsuya (right) led us to a stunning doughnut shop, adjacent to the entrance. Mai Doughnuts has a fostered cult following amongst Kyotoites, who flock to munch on their soy milk doughnuts, which are much lighter and fluffier parcels of deliciousness, compared to their Western contemporaries. And they’re not saccharine-sweet. Tatsuya then led us into the head-spinning trading throng of Nishiki’s cavernous wonderland, which was teeming with the collision of wide-eyed cameratoting tourists and seasoned locals, concertedly going about their shopping. They know the place inside-out, as if it was their own pantry. From the eels arranged on

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.

Fitting send-off planned for Vatuvei DEPARTING Warriors wing Manu Vatuvei has been named in the No 5 jersey one last time although he won’t feature in Friday’s NRL clash against Penrith. The 31-year-old is an honorary selection only in an extended 24man squad with Ken Maumalo confirmed to start against the Panthers on the left wing in jersey No 21.

The tribute is part of the club’s comprehensive plans to farewell ‘The Beast’ in style, before he leaves New Zealand on Saturday to join UK Super League side Salford. The club’s Penrose home ground is being renamed ‘Manu Vatuvei Stadium’ for the night and the 226-game veteran will be introduced to the crowd when he leads the side out

before kick-off. Warriors players will also have his name, signature and club number embroidered in their playing jerseys and will warm-up in special T-shirts emblazoned with Vatuvei #115 on the back. “While Manu isn’t contractually able to play for us on Friday night, I really wanted to honour him by including him in our

team list,” said Warriors coach Stephen Kearney. “He’s one of the club’s greatest players and we are really looking forward to giving him a fitting send-off on Friday night. “He won’t play but he’ll certainly run down the tunnel before kick-off one last time.” While Vatuvei will be reduced to a spectator role, the 10thranked Warriors welcome back

More Havilis poised for Crusaders „„ By Gordon Findlater DAVID HAVILI has made a name for himself in the Crusaders this season and soon enough he may not be the only Havili in red and black. We’ve seen plenty of Whitelocks run out for Canterbury and the Crusaders, and two of the three Barretts have also graced AMI Stadium. Could the Havilis be the next family to dominate Super Rugby? After slowly making a name for himself with Tasman and the Crusaders, David has experienced a breakout season for the Crusaders in 2017. It may not be long until his younger brother William Havili is knocking on the Super Rugby door. The first-five was a standout for Nelson College during his final year in 2016. He notched up 134 points in last year’s UC Championship and is expected to feature alongside his older brother in this year’s NPC. “It would be awesome to run on with (William), but he’s got to perform in club rugby and the warm-up games going into the season,” David said. Another Havili is also making

a name for himself in the UC Championship with Nelson College. Caleb Havili is the cousin of David and William. The lock is currently in Christchurch after attending the Junior Knights development camp which is run by the Crusaders. The camp brings together top secondary school players in the Crusaders region. Yesterday, Caleb was chosen in the 25-man squad to play the Hurricanes under-18s in a curtain-raiser to the Crusaders v Hurricanes Super Rugby match in Wellington on Saturday. “I try not to let people know that I’m a Havili. When they find out, they always ask if I’m related to William and David,” said Caleb. The two older Havilis play in the backs, whereas Caleb is one of the biggest locks around at secondary school level. All come from strong rugby backgrounds. David and William’s father played for Nelson Bays, while Caleb’s father was a lock for Tonga. “My Dad is a bit bigger than their Dad, so I guess we got the bigger genes,” said Caleb. Off the field, the Havilis like to

take a hands-on approach. Before joining the Crusaders, David was working towards a building apprenticeship, something William is also currently undertaking. Meanwhile, Caleb

plans on becoming a mechanic after his time at school. “If I’ve got someone to fix up the house and someone to fix up the car that sounds pretty handy,” said David.

While making the transition from secondary school rugby to Super Rugby is a difficult task, the prospect of three Havilis running onto AMI Stadium in the future isn’t off the cards.

Dunn stable being probed for positive caffeine tests „„ By Gordon Findlater THE ROBERT Dunn Racing Stable is under investigation after returning positive swabs for a banned substance. The Racing Integrity Unit is investigating positive swabs containing caffeine which were taken at the Nelson Winter Cup twoday meeting on June 9 and 11. Integrity unit chief investigator Neil Grimstone refused to give details of the investigation, other than to confirm a number of horses from the Dunn stable produced Robert Dunn positive tests. The stable had four wins at the meeting. Billy Badger won twice, including the Winter Cup. Dream to Reality and Hayden’s Meddle also won races. Mr Grimstone would not say how many horses had returned positive tests but The Star understands it could be as

many as five. Harness Racing New Zealand chief executive Edward Rennell says the case is an unusual one because everyone in the racing industry knows that caffeine is easy to test for. Robert Dunn told The Star yesterday he was mystified by the positive swabs. “It’s just one of those things. Somehow it’s got into our test. It could have been contamination but we don’t know at this stage,” he said. Dunn has three previous convictions for breaches of the Neil Grimstone prohibited substance rule. The first was in Australia in 1992, which resulted in a six-month suspension of his trainer’s licence. The second was in New Zealand in 2004 and resulted in a $500 fine. The most recent was in June last year and resulted in a $4000 fine.

Big decisions remain over workload of All Blacks FROM ALLIES to enemies, the Crusaders and Hurricanes will put their All Blacks friendships on hold this week for their final Super Rugby round-robin match and Steve Hansen will be watching closely to see who of his senior players will be selected after such a torrid Lions series. The All Blacks coach hinted a day after the 15-15 draw at Eden Park, which tied the series, that he would like to think some of his Crusaders players might be

rested from Saturday’s match at Westpac Stadium ahead of their quarter-final a week later. Skipper Kieran Read is an obvious player who needs to be carefully managed over the next few weeks, and his Crusaders teammate Sam Whitelock is another.

season against the Hurricanes in Wellington, and the Lions beat the Sharks at Kings Park on Sunday morning, then the Crusaders face the prospect of travelling to Ellis Park for the final. The Hurricanes are currently fifth, one point above the Chiefs, and would like to stay there in order to play a potential quarterfinal against the Brumbies in Canberra rather than having to travel all the way to Cape Town to play the Stormers. Reinforc-

ing the need for care from both Robertson and his opposite Chris Boyd is the fact that the Crusaders’ 20-12 victory over the Hurricanes in round 12 in May was one of the matches of the season in terms of its intensity. No 10 Beauden Barrett will have to be looked after by Boyd, but the Hurricanes are lucky in that their forwards haven’t had the battering that the Crusaders’ pack have had in the series. –NZ Herald

Popular Barina springs a surprise „„ By Ross Kiddie THE LAUNCH of Holden’s latest generation Barina presented a few surprises. Gone is the sporty RS model, and gone, too, is the delightful 1.4-litre turbocharged engine. The new range has a 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated engine only and is available in just two specifications LS and LT; the LS at $22,490 gets a manual gearbox or an automatic for an extra $1500 while the LS as tested is automatic only and sits at $25,990. It doesn’t surprise me that the Barina range has been rationalised a little, the small hatchback segment is a tough market to conquer, and efficiencies within a line-up are crucial to models being competitive. All that aside, the new Barina hasn’t lost any of the concept which has made it a popular model here, the cheeky five-door punches above its weight with high in-cabin comfort, a good level of specification, and performance and economy you would expect from a vibrant 1598cc engine. Holden rate the 16-valve unit with an 85kW power output and 155Nm of torque. It is an engine which likes to work hard, but the designers haven’t lost sight of the fact that a car like the Barina is destined for a life working at a slower pace and hauling in acceleration at city speeds. Even in these conditions the engine works tirelessly and has a torque structure which doesn’t struggle against a free-revving nature. It is coupled to a six-speed automatic and the low and close ratios provide an almost seamless flow of power. There’s a manual sequential shifting control function at the main shifter itself which can be manipulated by the driver’s thumb, it is quite intuitive and doesn’t necessitate movement of the gearshift lever. Together the transmission and engine work in harmony, the engine is refined as well as having the necessary power outputs to glean lively acceleration along with the efficiencies needed to lure the fuel-conscious buyer. The important figures are a 11.2sec time to make

HOLDEN BARINA: Fuel-efficient engine.

100km/h from a standstill, and a combined cycle claim of 7.2-litres per 100km (39mpg). I worked the engine quite hard during testing time but it still returned an 8/100km (35mpg) figure. That along with a 6.2l/100km (46mpg) instantaneous figure at 100km/h, the engine is unstressed at that speed turning over at just 2250rpm. • Price – Holden Barina LT, $25,990 • Dimensions – Length, 4039mm; width, 1735mm; height, 1517mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive, 1598cc, 85kW, 155Nm, sixspeed automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 11.2.sec • Fuel usage – 7.2l/100km

For that highway overtake the engine works well through the midrange, a kick-down, or manual shift to third or fourth gear will initiate a 6.8sec, 80-120km/h time. The Barina is also an agile, nimble model when asked to tackle a quick corner or two. It rides on high-quality Continental tyres (205/50 x 17in), they command grip and force under load doesn’t have them complaining. There is positive directional accuracy and precise turn-in, the steering isn’t overly quick but it is sharp enough to exude a sporty feel. In saying that, you have to take into account the Barina’s suspension isn’t sophisticated, a tube beam rear axle doesn’t allow a lot of suspension freedom but, that aside, its handling must be described as well above satisfactory. The spring and damper

rates are also set up for a comfortable in-cabin ride, they accept the big hits from Christchurch’s uneven road surfaces without too much shock entering the cabin. That is an area Holden have done well with; even though the Barina is sourced from Korea, it has been engineered for Australian and New Zealand conditions through development work at Holden’s Melbourne testing facility. The result is a quiet-riding, good handling and comfortable car which does little wrong in terms of performance and handling. It is also specced well, even in low grade form. The higher grade LS gets an artificial leather trim while the front are seats heated for those frosty Christchurch mornings. My Link infotainment, keyless entry and ignition, cruise control, height adjustable driver’s seat and advanced trip computer settings are all fitted. It must be mentioned too, the new Barina qualifies for a five-star Australasian New Car Assessment Program safety rating. As history has served to prove, Holden is the past master at introducing new variants in a model’s life-cycle and I’m sure the Barina won’t be any different. I know Holden on both sides of the Tasman are concentrating hard on having an entire line-up compatible with New Zealand’s demands when Australian manufacture finishes at the end of this year, so it may be some time before Barina evolves. In the interim, I wouldn’t let that prevent me from a purchase if I was a small, five-door hatchback buyer.

Are two real estate agencies better than one when it comes to selling your house? It has become less common to see properties festooned with a variety of ‘for sale’ signs, but whether you choose to work with one agency or several is all a matter of personal choice. Either way, there are a few important things to bear in mind. Both options require the signing of a legal contract between you and the agency involved. These contracts, known as agency or ‘listing’ agreements, are legally binding so it’s a good idea to get advice from your lawyer before you sign. As the name suggests, a general agency agreement gives more than one agency the right to market your property. You will be asked to sign a general agency agreement with each agency. Each one will work with you to arrange open homes, and they will all market the property differently. “If you opt for a sole or ‘exclusive’ agency agreement, you are giving one agent or agency the exclusive right to market and sell your property,” explains Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the Real Estate Agents Authority (REAA). “If you sign a sole agency agreement you should not sign another agency agreement with any other agent until you have cancelled the first agreement. If you don’t, you may have to pay all agents a commission, regardless of which one arranged the sale.” Make sure you check what happens when the sole agency agreement is cancelled. Some sole agency agreements become general agency agreements when cancelled – this means that you will also have to cancel the general agency agreement if you no longer want to work with the agency. If you change your mind after signing a sole agency agreement you can cancel it by 5pm on the first working day after you have been given a copy. This must be done in writing (such as letter, email or fax). “Whether you choose one agency or take the general agency approach, the Real Estate Agents Authority recommends using agencies that

choose to use specific clauses that we have designed to reduce the risk to you of paying two commissions,” LampenSmith says. “These clauses help protect you by making it clear when the agreement ends and when you need to pay a commission.” If you don’t use these agencies, your sole agency agreement for a residential property may be for a term longer than 90 days. You should note though that you or the agent can cancel the agreement at any time after those 90 days. “However, if an agent carries out any work before the agreement is cancelled and that work results in the sale of the property after the agreement is cancelled, the agency agreement will be legally binding and you may have to pay the agent commission,” LampenSmith says. When a general or sole agency agreement is cancelled your agent must give you a list of people they have introduced to the property. If you subsequently sell to one of these people through a new agent, the first agent may still be entitled to a commission. In theory, multiple representation means the property will be seen by a larger number of potential buyers, so it has a greater chance of selling at a higher price. However, the risk in this arrangement is that because no one agent is solely responsible for marketing the property, they may be less committed to selling it. By contrast, a sole agency listing means the agent is obligated to do their best to sell the property. To learn more about the standard clauses, and a list of agencies that use them, visit

Grateful for others’ generosity Quite literally life-changing is how former Brooklands resident Kathryn Jackson describes the Red Cross hardship and storage grants they received after the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch earthquakes. Kathryn, her husband Andy, and their son Cam were living in the now red-zoned northern Christchurch suburb and had just received approval to extend their “dream home” when the September 2010 earthquake hit. As the weeks of chaos with no running water or amenities progressed and their land was declared red-zoned, the Jacksons received a storage grant that paid for a shipping container to be placed on land they bought near Amberley. They then built a small sleep-out – “an escape bolt-hole” – that they lived in while their future home was constructed nearby. Now happily settled in the Hurunui, the Jacksons will eternally be grateful for the small financial difference New Zealand Red Cross made to their lives, made possible by the generous donations Red Cross received through its 2011 Canterbury Earthquake Appeal. The Jacksons’ story is one that rings true with thousands of families who faced loss, hardship and life-altering circumstances after the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes. Immediately after the quakes struck, New Zealand Red Cross established the Appeal and received more than $131 million in donations from people, businesses and Red Cross societies around the world. Through those donations New Zealand Red Cross has helped one in five Cantabrians with their recovery from the earthquakes. As well as a wide range of grants to target specific needs in the community, Red Cross regularly knocked on doors across the city, provided well-being workshops and messaging and worked closely with a range of specialist community organisations to improve the lives of those who might have otherwise gone unnoticed. In collaboration with Star Media, Red Cross has launched a suite of videos called “10 Good Stories” that highlights the good work done through the greater Christchurch Earthquake Recovery Programme between 2011 and 2016.

Using coffee to promote preparedness Think preparing for a disaster is boring? Having a cup of coffee with the neighbours could be just as important as storing water and food for three days. With Red Cross providing free, barista-made coffee around Christchurch suburbs, it’s easier than ever to connect with your neighbours.

Knowing your neighbours and being socially connected is just as important as having an up-to-date emergency kit, New Zealand Red Cross Recovery Manager Michael Donoghue explains.

“Those around you are more likely to provide practical help or a listening ear during, and immediately after, an emergency. Communities where people are better connected socially recover more quickly from an event, and Red Cross wants to help build and strengthen that social connectedness.” To help neighbours break the ice, Red Cross is touring the suburbs with a coffee cart dubbed ‘Buzz’ and a barbecue trailer. The cart and trailer are two of many Red Cross projects under the ‘Here For Good’ banner designed to enhance the city’s social connections and resilience.

Red Cross helping regions recover from Nov EQ Seven months after the massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake on 14 November 2016, New Zealand Red Cross is working closely with the people affected and assisting their recovery.

“It’s important that we identify and address these needs effectively instead of applying a one-sizefits-all approach,” Red Cross Secretary General Niamh Lawless says.

The $3.5 million raised through the Red Cross 2016 November Earthquake Appeal will all be spent helping affected residents recover from the disaster.

“For example, we are running drop-in centres in Kaikoura for young parents and earthquakeaffected residents, but found in places like Seddon that providing free well-being workshops, psychological first aid courses, and children’s books with strong preparedness and anxiety messaging is more relevant.”

With help from the Rural Support Trust, Red Cross staff and volunteers conducted a comprehensive outreach programme across the earthquake-hit regions of Marlborough, Kaikoura and Hurunui, visiting every home to see how people were getting on. Findings from this door-knocking initiative have helped shape the direction of the Red Cross November 2016 Recovery programme.

This is a complex recovery. Our teams discovered that different communities face their own unique issues.

The $1,000 Damaged Home Grants Red Cross launched in December saw Red Cross receive 400 applications and distribute $341,000 to affected residents. During March Red Cross conducted a series of recovery workshops with renowned Australian disaster psychologist Dr Rob Gordon across the regions. An estimated 200 people attended the six community sessions where Dr Gordon to explain the recovery process and provide practical tips to aid each person’s recovery.
