Arrest in serial arson case PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER DISAPPOINTED: Animal-lover Maddie Collins, with her pony, Trig, and mother, Sarah Manson Collins, has been left feeling shattered after a bogus $1.5m donation pledge, which would have paid for the kidney treatment she needs.

Cruel blow to sick teenager after bogus $1.5m pledge „„ By Gabrielle Stuart THE FAMILY of Maddie Collins is devastated a $1.5 million pledge that could save the teenager’s life appears to be bogus. A middle-aged woman told the family she would donate the money from a $42 million inheritance, enough to pay for Maddie’s treatment for kidney failure. The woman visited the family’s home to discuss the donation and continually phones and

Facebook messages them. But Maddie’s mother Sarah Manson Collins now believes the offer is false. It has distressed the family considerably. “It’s that utter sense of false hope. When we met her we thought all our stresses and worries were gone,” Mrs Manson Collins told The Star. “We thought we’ll get the transplant, and by next year Maddie will be fighting fit and able to get on with life,” she said.

Maddie, 13, has kidney failure with potentially life-threatening complications. Her family has been involved in a high profile fundraising campaign to get her a kidney transplant and follow up treatment in the United States. They visited the Baltimore hospital where the operation will take place last month and were told the cost had jumped from $350,000 to more than $700,000. About $170,000 has so far

been raised for the St Margaret’s College year 9 student. The family was approached by the woman via Facebook early last month who asked to meet in person at their West Melton home to give them a cheque. The woman spent an hour at their home but didn’t have the cheque, saying she needed to organise it with the bank. Since then the woman has made many more promises to pay, which haven’t eventuated. • Turn to page 4

hello “SUMMER ”FUN

„„ By Andrew King A MAN in his 30s has been arrested for a spate of arsons that struck fear into residents in the Burnside and Ilam areas. Police charged the man late yesterday with seven counts of arson relating to wheelie bin fires dating back to May. He had been apprehended by a police patrol at the weekend after a wheelie bin was allegedly set alight near the intersection of Memorial Ave and Greers Rd, and charged with one count of arson. Detectives have been making further inquiries, which led to yesterday’s charges. He is scheduled to appear in the district court today. He will also face charges relating to the Misuse of Drugs Act. Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Worner said it was possible more charges will be laid. More than 10 wheelie bins were set on fire, with some that were close to houses causing damage to the dwellings.

Thursday July 20 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

LIFE HAS a habit of serving up lots of surprises, good ones at times, but unfortunately bad ones too. Sarah Manson Collins and her family are used to dealing with the bad news. Their daughter Maddie, 13, has a rare kidney condition and it will cost more than $700,000 to sort out. There have been a number of high profile fundraising activities and, so far, about $170,000 is in the kitty. But $700k is a Mt Everest they will struggle to climb. When a woman called them last month after hearing of Maddie’s plight and offered $1.5 million out of a huge inheritance, they thought good luck at last. As we reveal on page 1 today, the woman visited the family home, but failed to bring the cheque she had promised. She gave an excuse so not all was lost. But those excuses have been almost daily, and now the family has given up hope. That’s a cruel blow. – Barry Clarke

BORROW A TRAP

This week in history saw the Government Life Building opened in Cathedral Sq. It was the city’s first “high rise glass box” but was demolished following the earthquakes. On July 19, 1880, Lincoln College opened, which was the first agricultural college in the Southern Hemisphere. On the same date in 1988, Jock Orr, nicknamed ‘The Birdman’ after befriending birds in Cathedral Sq, died. Canterbury defeated North Otago 88-0 in a record Ranfurly Shield match score at Lancaster Park. On July 23, 1851, Pioneer William Deans was among 28 lost in the wreck of the Maria in Cook Strait. John Godley had tried to deprive the Deans and Hay families of their farms because he wanted only Anglicans to own land in the new settlement. The Deans’ brothers sold sheep to pay the legal costs of fighting Godley’s high-handed action, and William Deans was travelling to Sydney to buy replacement stock.

News Former policeman on cannabis charge „„ By Andrew King A FORMER police officer and his son have been charged with cultivation of cannabis.

Craig Paul Richardson, 51, and Joel Tobias Richardson, 24, will appear in the district court on July 27. Their arrests came after police

raided a New Brighton property earlier this month and allegedly found about 50 plants of varying maturity and a further 32 which had been recently harvested.

Craig Richardson was a police officer in Christchurch in the 1980s and 90s. Court documents listed his son’s occupation as a chef.

In Brief VEHICLE BREAK-INS Twelve vehicles were broken into with loose coins and electronics stolen earlier this week. Police said seven vehicles were broken into in Bryndwr and Fendalton on Monday night and Tuesday morning, and five in Waltham. Many were parked in driveways. Senior Sergeant Vaughn Lapslie said while police were focusing on vehicle crime, owners still needed to ensure they did not leave valuables in their vehicles. FREEDOM CAMPING REPORT A report on whether further changes should be made to the Freedom Camping Bylaw will be presented to city councillors in September. City council head of strategic policy Helen Beaumont said once the report has been received, it would decide whether to make further changes to the bylaw, or retain the current rules. The city council was forced to amend the rules in December after the city was inundated with freedom campers, resulting in overcrowding, unsanitary conditions and complaints. GREEN CENTRAL CANDIDATE The Green Party has selected lawyer Peter Richardson as its Christchurch Central candidate. The Mairehau resident, who is a partner at Linwood Law, will run against National MP Nicky Wagner and lawyer Duncan Webb, who is standing for Labour. Mr Richardson said he is deeply committed to protecting the city’s water, environment and families. The general election will be held on September 23.

president Stuart Boon, who initially received the complaint before sending it on to the CRFU, could not discuss details while the investigation was under way. No complaints had been laid about the behaviour of the player, but that would also be looked at as part of the investigation. Lincoln Rugby Club junior

A JUNIOR female rugby coach has been stood down after she allegedly verbally and physically abused a young player and grabbed him by the collar during a match. West Melton under-14.5s coach Amanda Tomlinson has been sidelined while the Canterbury Rugby Football Union investigates the matter. The incident happened during her team’s match against Lincoln under-14.5s on July 8. A complaint was laid against Tomlinson by the Lincoln Rugby Club. Speaking to The Star yesterday, Tomlinson said she grabbed the Lincoln player by his collar after he kicked a player from her team in the mouth during the match. “I didn’t physically assault him, I didn’t. I grabbed him by the collar of his shirt so he would look me in the eye,” she said. The West Melton player needed dental surgery, she said. “His teeth were facing his tonsils, basically. That doesn’t happen in a game of rugby,” she said. Tomlinson regretted what happened, but said she had to intervene before the boy’s “behaviour escalates”. She said she talked with the boy again after the match and made peace with him. “We’ve talked, we’ve hugged each other,” she said. Tomlinson said she was upset a complaint had been laid. “I spend so much of my time with these young teams,

Cruel blow to sick teenager after bogus $1.5m pledge •From page 1 The latest was yesterday morning when the woman said on Facebook Messenger she had arranged the bank transfer on Monday, but could not check it as she said she was on holiday in Dunedin. In the message she told Mrs Manson Collins: “A transfer did go out but not too sure where. “Sorry about this mucking around it would be stressful time for you all. Not just Maddie but the whole family.” The constant hope of the donation was cruel. “That could mean my daughter’s life,” said Mrs Manson Collins. She said the woman seemed genuine when she visited the house. She was aged in her 50s. She was completely bewildered about why the woman would do that to them, or what she was trying to achieve. The family are looking to get a kidney transplant at the John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, as there is more chance of getting a donated kidney, and the treatment offered there would make it more likely Maddie’s body would accept it, even if it was not

a perfect match. Maddie’s father, Adam Collins, donated one of his kidneys to her in 2012, but her body rejected it. This year Maddie was told the daily dialysis treatment she is on has put so much strain on her heart, she was at risk of a heart attack. That made the need for a kidney transplant more urgent. Attempts by The Star to contact the woman, whom we have decided not to name, have been futile. But a family member tracked down said she had been known to have “told some whoppers” in the past. He was unaware of the $42 million inheritance.

Seeing double: Facebook reacts to a Todd lookalike „„ By Gordon Findlater and Andrew King LOOK FAMILIAR? According to social media comments, Crusaders flanker Matt Todd could be the man police are looking to speak to about a car theft in Timaru. But it’s obviously not. Canterbury Police posted the picture of the Matt Todd lookalike on its Facebook page last week and since then a number of people have commented about the uncanny resemblance to the Crusader. “Unless Matt Todd has been stealing cars, I would suggest it is not him. He can probably afford his own cars,” said Inspector Dave Gaskin. The image on the left is surveillance footage taken from a Z Energy Station in Ashburton at 5am on July 12. The stolen Nissan Skyline was seen heading north and was involved in a petrol drive-off at about 5am from the station. The suspect’s choice of attire is perhaps a nod to his doppelganger’s somewhat shock omission from the All Blacks squad

Red light runners in the frame „„ By Bridget Rutherford CAMERAS and video technology are being investigated to accurately count the number of red light runners in the city. The city council has hired a consultancy firm to look into ways to measure how bad the problem is. It would then use that information to decide how to combat it. In March, The Star reported the city council was looking at altering the amber traffic signal by up to 1sec, and the “all-red” phase by between 0.5sec-1sec to curb the problem. But Christchurch Transport Operations Centre manager Ryan Cooney said more accurate data on red light runners was needed before any trials took place. He said they had considered measuring red light running using the underground traffic signal detection loops, doing manual counts, or with CCTV technology. Due to cost, accuracy and small sample sizes, they had discounted using manual counts or signal loops, he said.

BY THE NUMBERS

PROBLEM: The worst intersection for red light running last year was the corner of Blenheim Rd and Mandeville St. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN “We are now looking into use of video technology using either existing or new CCTV cameras along with video analytic software to count the number of red light runners across the city.” Mr Cooney said it was yet to be decided how long it would take to measure red light running, or when. The goal was to “accurately count” not enforce, he said. “Once we have a means to confidently count the number of red light runners across the city, we will move into trialling solutions to improve safety at

intersections.” A red light running count carried out on one day last year using the data from the underground detection loops showed at the worst 13 intersections, 6580 vehicles ran red lights. That increased from 3974 in 2014 and 4960 in 2015. The worst intersection last year was the corner of Blenheim Rd and Mandeville St. There are currently no red light cameras in the city, Mr Cooney said.

Progress on the city’s “dirty 30” list has been made, with eight buildings under “active improvement”. In May, the city council came up with a three-step approach to deal with derelict buildings, and put together a list of those hampering the central city’s regeneration. It included 30 buildings, plus the adjoined Duncan’s Buildings from 129-167 High St. Since then, the former Trinity Congregational Church and Shands Emporium have been removed because they were being actively restored. Eight of the buildings on the list are now actively being worked on, and the city council has had “positive dialogue” with owners of another eight of the buildings, who have given their commitment to action. The other 19 buildings, including the Christ Church Cathedral, remained problem sites. City councillor Jamie Gough said they were happy with the

News Park history board too costly

„„ By Bridget Rutherford A PLAN to install an information board at Little Hagley Park is in limbo after the discovery it would cost nearly $5000 for Ngai Tahu to provide the content. In 2015, the FendaltonWaimairi Community Board asked city council staff to look at the cost of an information panel, to record the history of the park and neighbouring Carlton Mill Bridge. But in March, city council staff said it would cost $4960 for Ngai Tahu’s consultancy firm, Matapopore, to confirm the content, design and images with the runanga, and another $2000 to build and install. Matapopore general manager Debbie Tikao said the $4960 figure included the cost of hiring a Maori designer. “It wasn’t just providing the words, it was sourcing images and getting approvals and providing some Maori design work as well.” Board chairman David Cartwright said the board was still keen to do it. “It just needs a little more work and a few more conversations.”

New safety barriers after serious But they won’t be finished until next year „„ By Sarla Donovan NEW SAFETY barriers will be put up on Main Rd, Redcliffs, after two serious crashes within a year – one which claimed a life. But they won’t be completed until February next year. In March, Mt Pleasant resident Maureen Imrie, 73, died when the vehicle her husband was driving slammed through a rickety wooden barrier near Shag Rock and plunged into the sea. Witnesses were able to pull Sarah Jane Arrow Bruce Imrie, 77, out of the vehicle, but it was swept away by an undertow before they were able to rescue Mrs Imrie. The incident came a year to

FATAL: The scene of the crash which claimed the life of Mt Pleasant woman Maureen Imrie. PHOTO: ANDREW KING

the day after repeat drink-driver Sarah Arrow crashed through a nearby barrier in Moncks Bay, badly injuring several pedestrians. Mr Imrie said he was pleased at news of the safety measures. “If there had been a proper metal safety barrier in place, there would (still) have been an accident, but it probably wouldn’t have been fatal. It was going into the estuary

that killed my wife.” Police are still investigating the fatal crash. It’s been a tough year for the pensioner, whose daughter died suddenly of leukaemia just two months after his wife’s death. A new safety barrier will be installed at the bend by Shag Rock by February next year. There will also be a new 100m section of barrier constructed south of the Shag Rock bend.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board member Darrell Latham said the measures were long overdue. “That is a problematic corner with a long history of accidents. We need to ensure not only that vehicles are safe from going off the road at the corner, but also the safety of people walking from the Christchurch Yacht Club to Shag Rock.”

Trampoline stolen to ‘feed kids’

crashes After Mrs Imrie’s death, Dr Latham met with city council staff and police, and sought urgent action on both sites. While he was pleased to hear measures were being put in place, Dr Latham was disappointed at the lack of communication from the city council. Dr Latham was unaware of the plans Darrell to install a Latham new section of barrier south of the bend. “It would have been good if the community board was updated and advised accordingly. We haven’t had an update regarding the latest measures and that would have been nice.” Aaron Haymes, city council transport operations manager, said the barriers will be in place by February 2018. “We will then consider continuing the (southern barrier) a further 160m, which will require additional approval and funding,” he said.

​LUCKY: The aftermath of Sunday’s serious crash on the Christchurch Akaroa Rd.

Pair lucky to survive horror smash „„ By Andrew King TWO PEOPLE are lucky to be alive after a horror smash saw their vehicle leave the road and end up in a nearby property early on Sunday. The vehicle the man and woman were in smashed through a wooden power pole and a tree before flying over a 2m wall, narrowly missing a house in Robinsons Bay about midnight. Residents who heard the crash raced to the scene and found the vehicle in a neighbour-

ing property after leaving the Christchurch Akaroa Rd. Akaroa Senior Constable Anita Osborne said she could not believe how lucky the two occupants were when she first arrived. “If you looked at the scene you wouldn’t think anyone could have survived,” she said. Emergency services arrived and firefighters cut free a 27-year-old woman who was then airlifted to Christchurch Hospital with head injuries. The driver, who suffered a broken back and ribs, was taken

Winter Coats Dress up or down

to hospital by ambulance. The power pole was snapped off at the base and found in the paddock a number of metres away, while debris from the tree was littered around the property – there was a big piece of wood protruding from the windscreen. The woman involved in the crash said she could not remember anything about the crash or the ride in the helicopter. That was probably a good thing, she said.

„„ By Andrew King A MAN was caught allegedly stealing a trampoline in Halswell to sell for scrap metal to feed his children. The 26-year-old appeared in the district court yesterday charged with burglary and was remanded on bail to reappear on August 10. Senior Sergeant Stephan McDaniel said when questioned by police the man said he was “grabbing it [the trampoline] for scrap metal to feed his kids”. It’s alleged the offender was seen at a property on Cashmere Rd at about 2pm on Tuesday by Community Watch Christchurch South as they went past to patrol a nearby subdivision. When the patrol came back the owner of the property was speaking with the man so they pulled over behind his vehicle. He had the deconstructed trampoline and other items in the back of his vehicle. Police were called to the scene and the 26-year-old was arrested for the alleged burglary. Senior Sergeant McDaniel said it was a good catch for the community patrol.

Southern rugby army about to invade city gold scarves. The Highlanders and Crusaders last met in a friendly match in Timaru on July 6, where the Highlanders won 33-12. Prior to that, the Crusaders came out victorious after Mitch Hunt nailed a drop goal in the 83rd minute of their June 3 round robin clash to win 25-22. As of yesterday afternoon, tickets were still available for Saturday’s match. The Hurricanes prevented the Crusaders from completing an unbeaten round-robin season, defeating them 3122 at Wellington’s Westpac Stadium on Saturday.

AT FIRST glance, it looks like a parking ticket, but when you take a second look, it’s something much better. The tickets are being handed out on vehicles in Christchurch for “failing to display a sufficiently satisfied stomach”. The ticket, issued by Burger Fuel City Council, entitles the user to a serving of free fries and aioli “anytime, as long as we’re open”. Aaron Gardiner shared the image on Facebook, and said: “This is quite clever... Burger Fuel is giving out parking ticket style vouchers.” But not everyone has been impressed with the Burger Fuel promotion. “A few years ago, I got one of these and only saw it when I started driving, I thought I had a ticket and went on a rant the whole ride home,” wrote Gary Dooley on Facebook. –NZ Herald •Pay by plate system soon, pg 15

New concept for retirement village A RETIREMENT village being built in Addington will have a public cafe, creche, community centre, health hub and even animals. Park Lane Retirement Village will feature Living Well – a new concept designed to create community connections and empower retirees. Arvida Group chief executive Bill McDonald said Living Well would be a public community precinct. “Living Well Park Lane will include a community centre for both the public and residents, complete with a café that sources produce from the village’s communal gardens, a community crèche, a health club and animals including

chickens and lambs. Traditionally retirement villages are a gated community – here the community is warmly welcomed to be part of life at Park Lane.” Mr McDonald said Christchurch was the perfect place to launch Living Well because of the innovative developments happening with the rebuild. He hoped to roll it out across other Arvida retirement villages, he said. Park Lane would use solar energy to power the main buildings, and would also offer electric cars for residents to use. Apartments at the new Park Lane Retirement Village go on sale today, with the majority expected to be completed and ready for tenants in March.

Pay by plate system soon „„ By Bridget Rutherford GONE ARE the days of pay and display. The city council is upgrading its 228 parking meters to a new system which would prevent the need to print out a ticket, return to your vehicle and put it on your dashboard. Instead, the new pay by plate system would see motorists type their licence plate number into the machine, choose the time they would like to stay, before paying and walking away. Parking wardens will then be able to use the data to check it against the licence plates of parked vehicles. City council transport operations manager Aaron Haymes said the upgrade would begin in October, and would take about four to six weeks. He said it would cost $900,000, but would save $50,000 annually in operation costs. “Of significance, eliminating paper tapes saves 1.5 million paper tickets or 800kg of paper annually from entering the Christchurch waste stream and littering city streets.” Mr Haymes said currently,

END OF AN ERA: Hamish Kember uses a city council parking meter to get his pay and display ticket – something that will be a thing of the past soon.

the city council had 228 parking metres servicing 2292 pay and display spaces, and another 31 machines in stock. All of them are about 10 years old and need to be upgraded to meet international security standards, he said. While the main structure would remain the same, the front panel and terminal component would be replaced. He said last year, the city

council collected $4.9 million in revenue through on-street parking machines. “Customers will be able to pay by credit card including the no-contact method and will still be able to pay with coins and use the text-to-park option.” Hamish Kember, who uses the parking meters, said the new system would be a lot more convenient for motorists

Mr Haymes said while the machines were upgraded, the city council would have extra staff out on the streets to help people learn to use them.

Sewage testing shows less meth users „„ By Gabrielle Stuart POLICE BELIEVE drug-takers in Christchurch may be using less meth and more synthetic cannabis after testing the city’s sewage. Christchurch’s wastewater networks were tested for drugs between December to February as part of a police study. The testing found between 458g and 798g of methamphetamine was being used in the city each week. Christchurch Intelligence district manager Trevor Dickinson-Mclachlan said that was less than police expected to find based on the amount of meth use they had seen or had reported. He said the symptoms of meth addiction were similar to some synthetic cannabis addictions, so believed they could have been mis-reported. They could not test for synthetic cannabis in the study, because the chemicals used in different batches were so different, he said. “I would suspect it could be as big or bigger than meth use here,” he said. Police were also surprised by the amount of ecstasy found in the study – between 120g and 261g per week. He said that could be because users tended to stay “under the radar” unless they overdosed or had complications. • Police intel, p20

News Man assaulted at boy racer meet needs surgery

„„ By Andrew King A MAN needs a steel plate put in his head after he was assaulted at a boy racer meet near McLean’s Island on Sunday morning. He and his cousin, who is 23 weeks pregnant, had gone to find some friends at about 3am on Pound Rd, but when they arrived they were immediately involved in an altercation. A family member of the assaulted man told The Star that he was attacked by an offender wearing “knuckle dusters” who also smashed out windows in his cousin’s car. He and his cousin had driven in separate vehicles to the meet. She fled and hid in her vehicle when the assault took place. The victim’s eye socket is so badly damaged, he needs surgery to put a steel plate in. “They will never go cruising again. I hope my nephew will be okay,” the family member said. Police have confirmed they have received a complaint about the assault and are following “strong lines of inquiry”.

Sir Graham linked to another trophy HE COACHED the All Blacks to their second World Cup victory, and now a trophy in his name will be up for grabs at next year’s Golden Oldies World Rugby Festival. The Sir Graham Henry Trophy will be contested in the newlycreated president’s grade division of the festival. The festival will be held in Christchurch in April, as part of the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018. Event organiser Peter McDermott said it was appropriate one of New Zealand’s legendary rugby names will be on the trophy awarded to the winner of the new division. “Rugby was the first ever Golden Oldies sport dating back to 1979, and we are excited to be able to now cater for players who want to add a competitive element on-field while still enjoying the off-field social aspect, which is what Golden Oldies sport is all about.” Sir Graham said Golden Oldies rugby brought likeminded people together to share a sense of camaraderie with fellow rugby players from around the world.

He said it was an honour to have his name on a trophy that represents those old traditions. “For me personally, it is also an honour to have the trophy awarded for the first time in my hometown where my rugby playing days began as a schoolboy.” The new president’s grade division will be played under the full World Rugby laws and is expected to attract a new group of players to the popular Golden

Oldies rugby programme. Rugby is expected to be the largest sport at next year’s event with more than 110 teams entered so far from across the world. The Golden Oldies World Rugby Festival will be played from April 22-29 at Hagley Park. It is one of 10 sports which make up the month-long Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018. The event is expected to bring about 10,000 people to the city.

Quake, medical innovations reward varsity researcher

WALKING the 78km of the Heaphy Track is no mean feat. But what about walking it bare feet? Teenager Bo Hofmans (right) plans to do just that in an effort to raise money for disadvantaged children who don’t have shoes to wear to school. The 15-year-old Cashmere High School student has been walking the gravelly Rapaki Track to prepare for his barefoot hike in October. “I was thinking doing [the walk] barefoot might be a good idea just as an experience, and then my mate mentioned ‘why don’t you do it for a charity?’” Bo did some research and found out KidsCan had a “Shoes for Kids” programme that had seen 128,000 pairs of shoes donated to underprivileged children who went to school barefoot. Bo said he would soon start carrying a 15kg pack and rub methylated spirits on his feet to prepare for the Heaphy Track. “I’m hoping for a nice inch

A CANTERBURY researcher has received a national innovator award for his work, which has been used both to protect buildings from earthquakes and to improve patient hip replacements. Dr Geoff Rodgers, a mechanical engineer at Canterbury University, took the Norman FB Barry Foundation Emerging Innovator Award at the recent KiwiNet Research Commercialisation Awards. Mechanical seismic dampers he developed to dissipate kinetic energy of seismic waves penetrating a building structure are in use in a low-damage hospital complex in Christchurch. Dr Rodgers was also developing a new method for early detection of wear and tear of hip joint implants that monitored the sound vibrations transmitted from a patient’s hip replacement implants. The acoustic emission monitoring system was a non-invasive sensing technique that recorded low-level vibrations emitted from the implant during patient motion that make it through tissue to the skin’s surface. By listening to the ultrasonic

of callouses,” he said. “It would be great if I didn’t feel anything while I’m walking.” Bo has set up a Givealittle page called Barefoot for KidsCan, and hopes to raise about $15,000 before his hike on October 9.

INNOVATIVE: Canterbury University’s Dr Geoff Rodgers with mechanical seismic dampers. vibrations of the implant, it was possible to relate them to the condition of the implant, to help orthopaedic surgeons predict impending failures and manage revision surgery. Early detection of wear and tear could offer opportunities for proactive intervention, reducing the severity of surgery and providing improved patient outcomes.

Lead awards judge Dr Andrew Kelly, an executive director at BioPacific Partners said the applicants were demonstrating how commercially savvy they were. “Yet again, we’re seeing the benefit of previous research commercialisation success stories, and some failures, and people are learning from those,” he said.

News Intel work vital for crime prevention The Star continues its series on the work police in Canterbury are doing on crime prevention, heading off trouble before it starts. Gabrielle Stuart reports on the police intel unit THE PROBLEM with writing about police intelligence is that people working in intelligence don’t like to talk about what they do. When they heard a journalist was due to arrive last week, many in the Christchurch intel team made themselves scarce. Christchurch intelligence district manager Trevor Dickinson-Mclachlan said it was nothing personal: Most of his team liked to stay out of the spotlight. Their job is to monitor, watch, and report. To stay in the background. Their greatest victories are when criminals are stopped or crimes are prevented before anything happens – and nothing happening doesn’t make a very good story. Often the public won’t hear anything about what they do, unless something goes wrong. Yet they do a huge amount. The Canterbury team is about 30-strong, and deeply involved in all kinds of policing work from preventing drug crime to keeping people safe at community events. The majority of them are civilian, non-sworn staff, from all kinds of backgrounds – from people trained in the army to data analysts fresh from university. When I ask Mr DickinsonMclachlan about his own background, he says that’s tricky to answer. He has been a non-sworn officer for Auckland and Canterbury police for about 16

How intel works in the field LATE LAST year, a Christchurch analyst noticed something strange. In several recent crimes, the stolen getaway vehicle used had been a Mazda Demio – traditionally seen as a “nana car” and definitely not known for its speed. Until 2015, the number of Demios stolen had been in the single figures. But, in the 12 months between February 2016 and February this year, 55 had been stolen. Many of the thieves were young – 17 or younger. Intelligence analyst Olivia

years and has spent his career in intelligence. But aside from mentioning a stint working with the army, he can’t tell me the details of who he has worked for. He can talk about why he chose to work in the field, and he is quietly passionate as he talks about it. When he started with the police, intelligence was known, slightly disparagingly, as “the news and the weather” – seen as somewhat removed from frontline policing work, he said. But looking ahead was vital to preventing crime, he said. “Years ago, staff came into the station and got their keys and drove out, and it was effectively up to them where they headed.”

By using intelligence information to assess where and at what times crime was most likely to happen, patrols were much more effective, he said. On Friday and Saturday nights, they saw people walking between bars on Victoria St and on St Asaph St, and taking shortcuts through empty car parks and construction sites. Those areas were often dark and quite isolated. But they were also open, so by patrolling regularly there, police could see what was going on and make sure people were safe. As the city was being rebuilt, they could see potential problems and work to prevent them. He said crime had been “virtu-

ally eliminated” at the central city Bus Interchange through good design: Eliminating dark corners, spreading waiting areas out, and using architectural tricks like high and low ceilings to psychologically guide people out into open spaces. Unregistered or unwarranted cars in the eastern suburbs was another problem they saw regularly. “I could send people out to issue tickets to people with no warrants or driver’s licences. Would it work? Yes, we’d issue lots of tickets. But would it be effective? No, probably not: It would be just another ticket they couldn’t afford to pay,” he said. By helping people get into driver training, get drug or alcohol addiction help, or get a job, the root cause of many problems could be solved, he said. They also regularly did undercover work. Plain-clothes officers from his team had been planted in the crowd during World Cup cricket matches at Hagley Oval, and had been able to catch several people involved in illegal overseas betting rings – as well as the odd streaker. For something more routine,

Cleaver said that may have been because they were seen as an easy target, without the immobilisers or security features of newer vehicles. She said they had also been featured in the video game, Grand Theft Auto, which could mean they were perceived as “cool nana cars”. Once they identified the problem, police could work to prevent it. They helped owners of Demios find ways to make them more secure, warned other agencies about it, and looked out for any being driven suspiciously. like a burglary, his team were often asked for help. They kept lists of potential suspects who had been through the court system or were known to be in the area, and could quickly come up with a list of doors to knock on if a crime had happened. People from his team also regularly spent time scanning public social media and sites online, looking for stolen goods or anything suspicious. Mr Dickinson-Mclachlan said big data and technology was quickly changing the way that worked. Programmes were being developed which were able to do that online scanning for them, and ping anything potentially suspicious. As the number of cameras in the city grew, they were also becoming a more useful tool. But he believed the most important part of the job would always stay the same: Preventing crimes, and doing everything possible behind the scenes to keep people safe. “I almost take it personally. For every victim of a burglary, I think how did we fail here?” he said.

Police prepped for everything and anything during Lions tour THREE MONTHS before any Lions fans arrived in Christchurch for the Crusaders v Lions match, police had already mapped out everything that could go wrong. They detailed potential problems – like extra tourists and campervan convoys travelling on the damaged roads between Picton and Christchurch, alcohol-related problems around the stadium or fan zones, and the increased risk of vehicle break-ins as tourists were seen as “an easy target”. The impact of anything

going wrong could be serious, intelligence district manager Trevor Dickinson-Mclachlan said. “If you had one Lions fan killed in a fatality on our roads, it would go around the world, and you think about the impact it could have on New Zealand’s reputation,” he said. So they detailed ways to prevent problems before they happened. For potential problems on the roads, they worked with the NZ Transport Agency to have extra signage put up between Picton

and Christchurch, worked with Lions tour operators and rental car companies to get

information out to drivers, and posted extra police on the roads that week.

In the end, there was only one serious incident – a family of Lions fans who had their campervan broken into and valuables stolen, including their tickets and passports. It was impossible to say if more might have gone wrong if they hadn’t been prepared, Mr Dickinson-Mclachlan said. But it did mean they had everything on hand to help the family of Lions fans, including after-hours numbers they called to get the family new tickets to the match and replace their stolen documents.

CDHB ‘hatchet job’ THE SILENCE has been deafening. Not a strong word written, let alone a murmur on the airwaves, or even a squeak on social media. After last week’s Treasury report slamming our Canterbury District Heath Board, not one local National Party member of parliament has stood up to defend them or the remarkable men and women who are struggling to meet our health needs in the region. Senior Canterbury doctors have labelled the report a “Pearl Harbour-style attack”, David Clark, Labour’s health spokesman has called it a “hatchet job”. All we have seen from Government-elected members is a failure to stand up for us. It is a failure of leadership. The report claimed that the CDHB was using tactics to leverage more public funds. It completely ignored the reality of the ongoing health fallouts from the Canterbury earthquakes and the lack of funding to support their population. The National Government has treated our health system as if it was business as usual when it

comes to funding, when we can all plainly see around us that, when it comes to health, it is far from business as usual down here. Our pleas to Wellington have been ignored. The Ministry of Health simply will not listen. And Nicky Wagner, as minister supporting greater Christchurch regeneration and associate minister of health, has failed to make our case. Rather than silence, the minister should have been shouting from the rooftops about our un-met health needs and the need for assistance. I think the CDHB has been a star performer over the last seven years. Dedicated and exceptional men and women have continued to care for us through the most trying of conditions. As Cantabrians, we need to get in behind our board and all the health professionals who are working for us and defend them against this “hatchet job”. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

There is going to be more of this and they cannot get away with it. People mention mental health? Stopping this at the source will help. Emirates Team New Zealand cyclist Joe Sullivan was reunited with his childhood sailing coach, Ron Mackie, at last week’s victory parade

Aaron Krahagen – Well done Ron, you have been an exceptional coach and role model at the Waimakariri Sailing and Power Boat Club and brought many great memories to many young sailors. Jacqui Hutchinson – Oh, Mr Mackie, I remember you at Rangiora High School.  You were always so kind and encouraging way back then, too. Michelle Maiava – Ron Mackie is a legend.

Strategy aims to build on post-quake economic growth SINCE THE first big quake in 2010, the Government has invested more than $14 billion in the rebuild and recovery of Christchurch and greater Canterbury. Today, Canterbury’s population has topped its pre-earthquake numbers, the economy is growing faster than in many other parts of the country and its unemployment rate is below the national average. Even so, we still have work to do to ensure we continue to grow and thrive. That’s why, late last month, the Government launched an action plan to drive economic growth.

Nicky Wagner The Canterbury Regional Economic Development Strategy includes a series of targeted initiatives to increase jobs, income and investment throughout the region. As rebuild activity levels off, the strategy sets challenging targets to promote regional transport planning and

infrastructure, improve digital connectivity, manage the region’s fresh waterways and provide support around education, immigration, production and tourism. Two of these seven priority areas are particularly close to my heart – education and training for a skilled workforce, and

tourism. In the past year, 16,500 jobs were created in Canterbury. To keep that momentum going, the strategy includes $170,000 to connect secondary students with businesses that can transition them into further education, employment or training. We need to keep our young people in the region and ensure they have the knowledge and skills to get ahead. This not only benefits the individual, but the whole community. Data shows greater Christchurch is back on the itinerary for many international visitors but, overall, tourism has

not yet reached pre-quake levels. Funding of $160,000 – on top of the $2 million awarded through a regional tourism facilities grant – will help grow a sustainable industry and ensure Canterbury becomes the gateway to the south. This strategy is all about enabling Christchurch and greater Canterbury to leverage recovery and rebuild opportunities, and drive economic growth into the regeneration phase. •Nicky Wagner is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration •Lianne Dalziel column, pg 26

I’M REALLY proud of the fact that on Tuesday this week, the city council became the first organisation in New Zealand to be awarded the Energy-Mark Gold certification. This is the highest level of certification and demonstrates a real commitment to energy management. Our civic office is among the greenest office buildings in New Zealand and we want other community facilities to be based on the same sustainability principles. We have implemented a resource efficiency and greenhouse gas emission management programme for our activities, which not only includes management of energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, but also management of solid waste generation and water use. We offer free sustainability advisory services and incentives to businesses and to homeowners to improve water and energy efficiencies. We have also gained the certified emissions measurement and reduction scheme certification. This ensures accurate measurement of the organisation’s carbon footprint and having a strategy in place for managing and reducing its emissions. So why is this important? In my view, cities have to lead the way and Governments need to meet their commitments under the Paris Agreement, the fulfilment of which is critical to the future of the planet. It’s the ‘think globally, act locally’ principle in action. Christchurch has been asked to join the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy. Before we do that, I want our commitment to be real. Signing up isn’t enough – it’s actually making it happen that will make a difference. The city council can show leadership, but we need businesses and communities to do so too. Our target sustainability business services is a good example of the city council’s efforts to help Christchurch businesses with their resource efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The former president of the United States made a statement that really resonated with me when he said we could not “condemn our children to a planet beyond their capacity to repair”. I hope our efforts in Christchurch contribute to ensuring that doesn’t happen. •If you want to ask Ms Dalziel a question, email mayor@ccc.govt.nz. Put Reader’s Question in the subject line.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

500g Frozen broad beans 100g Snow peas 2 Avocados 250g Cherry tomatoes

CHICKEN BREAST WITH MUSHROOM STUFFING AND MARSALA GLAZE Ingredients 1 Garlic clove 1 Shallot, or small onion, diced 15g Butter 50g White Button mushrooms 2 slices Bread, stale and diced 1 Tbsp Parsley, finely chopped 1 Lemon, zest 2 Chicken breasts 1 Tbsp Oil 3 Tbsp Marsala, or sherry 2 Tbsp Cream Directions Stuffing In a small frying pan, fry the garlic and shallot in the butter until translucent. Add the mushrooms and fry for 2-3min until cooked. Add the breadcrumbs, cooking until the butter has been absorbed. Take off the heat, add the parsley and lemon zest and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. To cook the chicken Heat the oven to 180 deg C.

Dressing ½ cup Avocado oil ¼ cup Cider vinegar 1 tsp Sugar 1 tsp Mustard 1 tsp Salt 1 to taste Cracked black pepper Directions Stuff the chicken breast by lifting the tenderloin up (if there is no tenderloin, ignore this). Press half of the stuffing on to the breast meat. Cover the stuffing with the tenderloin. Wrap the breast with kitchen string to secure the stuffing in place and tie. Repeat with second breast. Heat a frying pan and add oil. Add the breasts skin side down and season with salt. When browned on one side, turn and season again. After 3min, place the pan in the hot oven for a further 10-12min or until cooked. Remove from the oven and cover with foil to rest for 5min. To serve, place the chicken on a chopping board and remove the string.

Slice in half and place on a warmed plate. Cover with foil while you make the sauce. Return the pan of chicken juices to the hob. Add the marsala or sherry and let it reduce for 2-3min (this is called de-glazing). Add the cream and taste for seasoning. Pour the sauce over the chicken. You may need to pour over through a sieve to remove any burnt pan leftovers. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Serve with potatoes and greens.

Thaw beans. Peel grey skin off beans. Wash snow peas and cut in half lengthways. Cut avocado in half, then remove stones and peel. Chop avocado roughly. Wash tomatoes and cut in half. Toss beans, snow peas, avocado and tomatoes with dressing. Dressing: Combine avocado oil, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper.

GARDENING ADVICE

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.

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:

QUESTION

What is the best way of propagating Tree Peony seeds? And how do you move one that has grown too big for its position?

• • • •

Today’s winning question came from Natalie Heaven.

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)

Tree Peonies are typically propagated by grafting onto Herbaceous Peony roots (normal peonies that you can acquire from nurseries). Therefore, you may want to do some experimenting with the timing of seed collection and sowing techniques, as the more traditional peonies are propagated by root division. To transplant a Tree Peony, try carrying out the process in mid-winter when the plant is not in active growth. Being very careful, dig out as much of the roots as possible. Prepare the new planting site thoroughly with ample amounts of Daltons Compost, as all peonies thrive on organic matter. Shift the plant carefully, providing support if necessary, and firm into position. Ensure it is planted at the same depth that it was previously growing, then add more compost around the base of the plant. Water well after shifting to help reduce possible transplant shock.

Check the undersides of leaves for scale insects, and leaf sheaths and stems for mealybug and scale. Look for silvering of leaves on evergreen shrubs and trees including rhododendrons, camellias and pieris. This silvering indicates the presence of thrips. Spray oil to clean these up and reduce their numbers for spring. Collect diseased fallen leaves and place in the rubbish bin (not the organics bin). Spray the ground around infected

plants with copper spray to help kill disease spores. Winter-hardy weeds can overrun the garden, making control in spring a nightmare. Spray with fast-acting glyphosate or dig out hard-to-kill weeds such as dock. Once weeding is done, fork compost through soil and mulch with a 10cm layer of fine bark or pea straw.

ANSWER

THE BEST antidote to a pest and disease-ridden spring garden is thorough winter spraying. Nothing toxic is required — simply give plants a good dowsing of copper spray, followed a week later by an application of spraying oil. Both of these are regarded as organic. Repeat three times over the winter months to kill both overwintering insect eggs and disease spores. It’s especially important to spray fruit trees (including citrus), roses and other deciduous plants, as well as any plants badly infested with insect pests or disease last summer. In fact, you should spray the entire

Hiroshima’s haunting memories „„ By Mike Yardley

IT’S THE sight of the charred, mangled child’s tricycle, inside the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, that really ripped at my heart. The scorched tricycle was donated by Nobuo Tetsutani, his three-year-old son, Shin, died hours after the atomic bombing of their city. Nobuo found the barely alive Shin clinging onto the trike’s handlebars, trapped under the rubble of their destroyed home, before dying later in the evening. Like millions of fellow visitors every year, I too was drawn to the city where so many people were wiped out in one instant of apocalyptic destruction. The biggest surprise is the irrepressible beauty of Hiroshima, an instantly agreeable city, soothingly swathed in vast green spaces, lush and leafy streets and eye-catching rivers. Rather than replicate the prewar cityscape, the new Hiroshima was built as a city of great appeal. But it’s the raw and poignant atomic legacy that dominated my exploration. The most haunting reminder of the bombing is the A-Bomb Dome. Adjacent to the Peace Memorial Park, this landmark was formerly the Industrial Exhibition Hall, situated at ground zero of the bombing. When the first bomb was dropped, it exploded 500m above the building, killing its occupants instantly. Now preserved as a World Heritage site, its twisted girders, gaping holes, piles of rubble and shell-like appearance is shockingly evocative, bracketed in verdant trees. Inside the Peace Memorial Park, I rang the Peace Bell, which visitors are encouraged to do. Nearby is the Memorial Mound, a monument containing the ashes of tens of thousands of bombing victims. The saddest memorial is the Children’s Peace Monument, which depicts a girl with outstretched hands, while a crane bird, the Japanese symbol for longevity, flutters above. The monument refers to a child who believed that if she made

Across the road is the curved beauty of the cenotaph, which artfully frames the A-Bomb Dome and the Flame of Peace, which will only be extinguished when all nuclear weapons in the world have been decommissioned, completes the memorial walk. From there, I ventured inside the Peace Memorial Museum, which graphically showcases the sobering consequences of the atomic bombing, with photos, videos and personal exhibits, like that scorched trike. I was struck by the watch on display, that stopped

ticking at 8.15am, when the bomb exploded, worn at the time by Akito Kawagoe; there are various school uniforms, ripped and burnt, worn by children at the time of the bombing; mangled lunch boxes and deformed glass bottles, melted by the horrendous heat. There are searing first-hand accounts from survivors of the bombing, who later died from their horrific burns, radiation disorders and cancers. Beyond the emotional intensity of the war legacy, it helps to dispel the gloom by soaking up Hiroshima’s post-war renaissance. I love how the city has developed so many urban gardens, studded with ponds, miniature bridges and magnificent sculptures. Hiroshima Castle seemingly floats on its moat. Destroyed by the

bomb, it has been faithfully reconstructed and the main courtyard also includes trees sporting scorch marks from that fateful day. It is the Christ Church Cathedral of Hiroshima. Regardless of the politics of war and whether you think the bomb should have been dropped or not, there is no denying the profound and insightful impact a visit to Hiroshima serves up. The darkest of days, a people’s resilience, and a city rebuilt with its arms wide open to the world. Hiroshima is an easy train ride away from Tokyo, which I flew to from Christchurch via the Gold Coast. Jetstar’s 787 Dreamliner service is a great-value way to fly to Japan. For extra-comfort, upgrade

to the best-value business class experience to Japan. Wide leather reclining seats with a 38-inch seat pitch allowed me to get a decent in-flight sleep, although it is not a fully lie-flat seat that you’ll get with premium carriers. You’ll enjoy a generous 30kg checked-in baggage allowance; in-seat power; an excellent range of on-demand entertainment; a dedicated check-in area and priority boarding; blanket, pillow and amenities kit; deluxe meals, gourmet snacks on demand and premium drinks. Flying to Tokyo, for lunch, I noshed heartily on wushi pork with a gorgeous caramel cheesecake for dessert. Prior to landing, the crispy battered fish fillet and mushy peas, followed by a chocolate and raspberry brownie, fuelled me up to hit Japan at full speed.

It’s all about the journey

tant

Our last night together at El Nacional restaurant The Wonders of South America group at Machu Pichu.

By Chris Lyons, Director and Tour Host, World Journeys If group travel conjures up image of hordes of tourists following a guide with a megaphone, think again! Small group travel today can be the ultimate way to travel to some of the world’s most exciting, challenging and exotic countries. I am in the enviable position of hosting small groups of Kiwi travellers each year to the likes of South America and Africa, and can honestly say it’s the way to go! You may not have friends who share your particular ‘bucket list’ of travel desires, but you don’t like travelling alone. Perhaps tackling a foreign language is too daunting, or you simply don’t have the energy to do it all yourself. Booking a small group tour takes care of all of that. There is company to share the experiences with, all the nitty gritty details are taken care of by someone else, and your host is there to smooth the way should anything unexpected happen. World Journeys creates and operates a range of small group tours each year, selecting our most-loved destinations such as the game parks of Southern Africa, the beauty and traditions of Japan, and the epic ports of the Mediterranean. Some of these journeys include a cruise – whether that be Holland America Line in the Med, or a small ship in the Galapagos Islands. Other journeys take roads less travelled, such as our itinerary in still-developing Madagascar (perfect for avid travellers!).

SMALL GROUP HOSTED JOURNEYS

New for 2018 is a ‘Croatia & Slovenia’ journey, which has a little taste of Venice and Mostar thrown in. There is so much to savour – the karst caves of Postojna, the castles of Predjama and Bled, picturesque open-air markets, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, historic churches, palaces and bridges as well as the spectacular Plitvice Lakes National Park. A highlight for many will be the small ship cruise along the Adriatic Coast, visiting some of the most beautiful Croatian Islands. Wine and food tasting along the way gives you a true glimpse of local life. In fact, food and wine is always a highlight of our travel, and we often include a farewell dinner at a ‘hidden gem’ favourite restaurant enjoyed only by those ‘in the know’. Most of all, I love the conviviality of travelling in, and hosting, a small group. There’s always company if you want it, or time to do your own thing every now and then. And every person brings something to the mix. There may be a keen photographer in the group, who you can follow to get the best shots, or a fashionista, who will call upon my haggling skills to buy jewellery or textiles in the markets. Many lifelong friendships have been forged on tour, and many return again to travel with us in subsequent years. Travel is all about the journey, but it’s also about sharing the experience, and that’s the beauty of travelling with a group.

Travel in comfort and style to explore new cultures, cuisines and landscapes, with a host to smooth the way and flights included!

UC CHRISTCHURCH YOUTH ORCHESTRA CONCERT

Angels and Goblins Under the baton of conductor, Helen Renaud, the UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra is excited to present its second concert for 2017, “Angels and Goblins” at the Charles Luney Auditorium in Winchester St on 29 July at 7.30pm. This Christchurch School of Music concert will feature the exciting El Salon Mexico by Copland, the UCCYO concert band playing Angels in the Architecture by Tichelli, the UCCYO string orchestra playing the beautiful Adagio by Barber and the full orchestra performing Faure’s Sicilienne and Fileuse from “Pelleas and Milisande” and Dvorak’s “Water Goblin” Symphonic Poem. CSM’s Music Director, Celia Stewart, wants to encourage Cantabrians to come along and enjoy this exciting programme: “It will be a wonderful opportunity to hear Christchurch’s top young orchestral musicians in concert.” In May of this year the orchestra presented its first concert, “Origins” in the beautiful Oamaru Opera House – travelling together and sharing its music with other communities is an important focus for the orchestra. The UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra was founded in the 1970s and offers talented students in the Christchurch area the opportunity to play challenging and exciting orchestral repertoire. Each year the orchestra performs 3-4 concerts and is often called on to perform at

Young diva takes on Sister Act „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding TAKING ON the role of the one and only ‘Lady Fabulous’, Deloris Van Cartier, could just be what Monique Clementson was born to do. Straight out of the city’s performing arts school and already Clementson, 21, has been chosen to play the lead role in the musical Sister Act in both Invercargill and Christchurch. She was head-hunted for the role and, on the same day the Avonhead resident auditioned for Invercargill Musical Theatre’s version of the show, she got a call to go audition for Showbiz Christchurch, which will stage the show in September. Having grown up watching Whoopi Goldberg in the 1992 film on which the musical is based, Clementson’s first big role out of the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art is a dream come true. “I am so incredibly grateful . . . it was just such a blessing to have the opportunity to even audition for the role,” she said. Describing her character as

DIVA WITH A FEVER: Monique Clementson performing in the Invercargill Musical Theatre’s version of Sister Act.

“sassy”, “straight-up” and “spontaneous”, Clementson said she has a connection with Deloris Van Cartier’s love of performing. Like her character, Clementson is also a fan of the nightlife, saying there is nothing like Mama Hooch on a Friday night. “That is my favourite thing to do in the weekend, to go out and pretend I am the best dancer

there,” she said. While she describes her dancing as “gamy”, she thinks it will work for her role. The past year has already been a whirl-wind for Clementson, who has also secured two professional gigs with The Court Theatre in its production of Legally Blonde and the children’s show Cinderella in Space.

Having a passion to make people laugh, she has even been made an apprentice Court Jester – the team behind the country’s longest running comedy show Scared Scriptless. “If someone was, like, what is your dream goal? I would full-on say, I would love to have my own television show like Ellen or The Oprah Winfrey Show . . . and

just give away heaps of stuff,” she said. Yet like a lot of artists in the city under pressure to find full-time work, Clementson has had times when she worried she made the wrong decision to study performing arts. “Between the time of finishing Legally Blonde and before I did a kids show . . . I had nothing and I was freaking out thinking I made the wrong decision,” she said. But Clementson said she opted to study at NASDA because she had never been particularly good at anything else. While studying, she was presented with a number of “serious” stage roles which she said were a huge challenge and developed her as a person. “All the things I went through during studying like relationships and break-ups and all that gross stuff helped,” she said. •Sister Act will run at the Isaac Theatre Royal from September 8-23.

Play evokes emotion of watching your favourite sports team Up ‘n’ Under Produced by Top Dog Theatre Written by John Godber Reviewed by Georgia O’Connor-Harding IF YOU have never been to a live rugby league game before, going to see Top Dog Theatre tackle playwright John Godber’s uplifting show is a good start. A lively atmosphere created by a small, but vivacious, cast will fast take you on the emotional rollercoaster you ride when watching a nail-bitingly close game. The fact you’re in a theatre is quickly forgotten as this hilarious show has you cheering for the underdog team to take the

win against its unfair rival. It all starts with a dumb bet. Ex-professional rugby league player Arthur, played by Tom Trevella, puts his life savings on the line against rival Reg Welsh, Aaron Boyce, betting he can train an amateur team to take down the unbeaten Cobblers Arms. If you are wondering, Wheatsheaf Arms, the team to take on these champions, are no Melbourne Storm, in fact they are almost beyond inept, needing a bit of convincing to get off their backsides. But a combination of ambition and, arguably, stupidity changes a bunch of everyday English lads who enjoys a good drink at the pub into a physically strong team

that could actually have a chance of winning. This show was chuckle-inducing from start to finish. There may only be six actors,

but each of them made their characters relatable and brought a humour to the stage that took you to the sports grounds of the show’s setting – Kingston upon Hull, England. Each performer had their merits, but Trevella was a star in his own right, in that he had such a natural stage presence which once again made it easy to forget you were at a stage show. He nailed the Yorkshire accent, and the rugged persona he gave off sang a stereotypical, aged former sportsman.

Apart from a tense rugby game creating the show’s climax, my favourite scene is when the Wheatsheaf Arms side are put through their paces by the nononsense athlete Hazel, Miriam van Voorthuizen. The 1980s music, and the physical pain each of the performers convey as they attempt to navigate their way through the scary looking gym machinery, was an entertaining treat to watch. Whether Wheatsheaf Arms win or not, the show is triumphant, sending a message that anything can happen if you work hard. •Up ‘n’ Under runs at the Lyttelton Arts Factory until Saturday.

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.

Cheeky C-HR new entry for Toyota „„ By Ross Kiddie THE LAST time I drove a 1.2-litre Toyota was the day I sold my wife’s old Starlet – that was 10 years ago. How times have changed, if you had told me then that Toyota would now be marketing a 1.2-litre sport utility vehicle I would have said you were joking. Well, the joke’s on me because that’s exactly what has just landed on the market, a 1197cc SUV/ crossover which Toyota have simply badged C-HR – an acronym for coupe high-rider. The C-HR is a smart piece of kit; of course it’s not overly big but it is bold, it has edgy styling which polarises people, most who I spoke to liked the shape, but a couple of others felt it was too weird. Personally, I grew to like it, the sharp angles mixed with flowing curves create a lot of attention and, judging by global demand, it is being well accepted. I particularly like the position of the rear door handles, they are situated just beneath the roof line and blend into the design almost invisibly. In terms of functionality, the C-HR is quite purposeful, the interior makes good use of its compact proportions, it’s a definite five-seater, and for three in the rear it’s cosy but not tight. In contrast the interior is a lot more conservative than the outside appearance, but it is fresh and built to the Toyota quality process. The fit and finish is perfect with high grade trim materials. The C-HR lands here in just one specification, well you do have the choice of either front-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive. It is listed at $37,990 with the 4WD option adding an extra $2000. The evaluation car was without drive to the rear, and that would be my choice by far. The C-HR is not an off-roader, so for the odd occasion when you need that extra grip aside, I don’t know that I’d be spending the extra. However, it’s the mechanicals which make the C-HR rather special. Under the bonnet sits the wee fourpotter, it’s a twin-camshaft, 16-valve design, but instead of being naturally aspirated, it has a turbocharger to boost power outputs. Toyota rate the engine with

TOYOTA C-HR: Edgy styling.

healthy figures for its size at 85kW and 185Nm; but the big secret is the area where those outputs are developed – 5200rpm for power and 1500rpm for torque. Consequently, they are low in the rev band and, that being the case, the engine works solidly and strongly right through to the top end, it is a smooth, whisper-quiet engine and I guess when you don’t have a lot of reciprocating mass you could expect that. The C-HR isn’t fast but it • Price – Toyota C-HR, $37,990 • Dimensions – Length, 4360mm; width, 1795mm; height, 1565mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, front-wheeldrive, 1197cc, 85kW, 185Nm, continuously variable automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 10.5sec • Fuel usage –6.4l/100km

will cut out a standstill to 100km/h time of 10.5sec. Drive is channelled through a continuously variable transmission and it, too, helps enhance the levels of smoothness and refinement. There’s a steady transition of drive and the ratio changes don’t load the engine, that feel of pull from engine and associated turbo boost is constant, the engine feels a lot more powerful than its figures suggest. Also, it responds willingly to throttle pressure, the beauty of turbocharging is the instant response but without the once heavy fuel use. Instead, the C-HR is rated with a 6.4-litre per 100km (44mpg) combined cycle average. That fits well with the 8l/100km (35mpg) average figure showing on the trip computer, along

with a 5l/100km (56mpg) instantaneous figure sitting at a steady 100km/h (engine speed 2750rpm). I took the test car west to Hororata and presented it with some short but challenging corners into the Malvern Hills. The C-HR has dynamic handling, and you’d expect that from a car which looks like it wants to move quickly. The suspension is quality through and through, it’s a fully independent strut/wishbone system and it hasn’t been dampened overly firm; instead there are high levels of comfort. Suspension control and the way it arrests body movement is a credit to the engineering teams. The ride is perfect, yet you can also force the C-HR into a corner and it will respond like a sports car with direct steering and plenty of steering feel. Riding on high quality Michelin tyres (225/50 x 18in) there is a lot of rubber on the road and that, too, contributes to the strong feeling of stability. In one of my Lexus evaluations last year I remarked that I couldn’t wait to drive other vehicles with the new 2-litre turbocharged engine that is finding its way through those premium vehicles. I thought that engine would also trickle its way through Toyota product as well, that hasn’t happened yet, but Toyota did surprise me when the C-HR was lunched, I didn’t expect its re-entry into turbocharging would be in an engine with such small capacity. The fact remains, though, that it works well and serves to prove that you don’t need cubic capacity to glean good performance. Add all that with those sharp styling elements and the C-HR is certainly a standout SUV.

Lino surprise call up to replace Johnson in Warriors MASON LINO’S out-of-the-blue call up to the Warriors is both a blessing and a curse. Lino has been named to replace the injured Shaun Johnson in the line-up to face North Queensland on Saturday night. He was preferred ahead of Ata Hingano for the clash at 1300smiles Stadium, Townsville. It will be his first NRL appearance in almost two years, since he played three games during the awful end to the 2015 sea-

son, when the Warriors lost six straight after Johnson suffered an ankle injury. While Lino, who is the only change to the Warriors, will be thrilled at the opportunity, it’s another “deep end” scenario. He comes into a team that has lost two consecutive matches, and needs a victory to keep their season alive on the toughest road trip in the NRL at a ground where the Warriors have won once in 11 attempts.

Lino has yet to win an NRL match. But the 23-year-old has been rewarded for two consistent seasons in the Warriors Intrust Super Premiership team, which he led to the finals last year and currently sit second after 19 rounds in this year’s competition. Lino is a solid player and his organisational skills must have been judged as superior to those of Hingano, who is on the bench as cover for both halves and hooker.

It will leave supporters of Hingano scratching their heads, though, especially as the Tongan has been earmarked – at this stage – to wear the No 6 jersey next year after Kieran Foran’s departure. “We know Mason will do a good job for us. He has been really consistent for our ISP side. At the same time, we have Ata on the bench, with his ability to cover the halves and hooker,” said coach Stephen Kearney.

Spoilt for choice: League or rugby

„„ By Gordon Findlater TEENAGER PATRICK Elia is a new breed of young footballer who has both the rugby union and league codes at his feet. The 17-year-old, who has starred in this year’s UC Championship, has a lucrative option to switch codes and play NRL in the future, or stick with rugby. Elia, who is the full-back for St Thomas’ of Canterbury College, has signed a contract with the Warriors and plans to move to Auckland in November. However, he is also being sought after by the Crusaders, who recently selected him in their under-18 side. Elia is not the first to be in this situation. Cruz Topai-Aveai – last year’s UC Championship MVP – switched codes to join the South Sydney Rabbitohs and is now with the Cronulla Sharks under-20 side. If Elia goes to the Warriors, he will join one of his first XV teammates. St Thomas’ No 8 Seth Tauamiti has joined the Warriors on a three-year contract. The two would also become housemates at Warriors House – a home away from home for the club’s most promising junior players. St Thomas’ connection with the NRL club doesn’t end there. Warriors South Island talent scout Andrew Auimatagi is a teacher and coach at the school.

Although Elia has signed with the Warriors, due to an under-18 rule in the NRL, he could potentially pull the pin if a more desirable offer comes up. “Playing any kind of professional rugby is a dream. It could still go either way depending on what’s going to be best for me,” said Elia. NRL player agent and former Kiwis coach Frank Endacott says it’s no surprise that NRL clubs are targeting Christchurch union players. “The Canberra Raiders actually rang me last night suggesting that they’re coming across and they’ll be looking at rugby union players,” said Endacott. Both codes have their pros and cons at the developmental level straight out of secondary school. However, it’s understood the Warriors have been able to offer more of an immediately beneficial package money-wise than the Crusaders. “It seems like, in rugby league, they reward you first and then you train hard. With rugby (union), you have to train hard and then you’ll get the reward,” said Elia. After cracking St Thomas’ first XV as a year 9, he has progressed in leaps and bounds. At the weekend, Elia was part of the Crusaders Junior Knights team which lost 10-25 to the Hurricanes under-18 team.

The money factor The gap in pay scale between the top NRL and Super Rugby stars isn’t massive. However, earlier this year Kieran Read was reported to become the first All Black to secure a $1 million a year contract. In the NRL there are five players believed to be earning in excess of that figure. Highest paid NRL players •Daly Cherry-Evans (Sea Eagles) – $1.3 million. •Johnathan Thurston (Cowboys) – $1.2 million. •Billy Slater (Storm) – $1.2 million. •Jarryd Hayne (Titans) – $1.2 million. •Cameron Smith (Storm) – $1.1 million. DECISION: Patrick Elia has both codes chasing his services. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

He also has from strong family links to union. His three older brothers all played for St Thomas’ first XV. His brother Elia Elia has since gone on to play for Manu Samoa and English club Harlequins. Last year, Elia got his first taste of rugby league when he played for St Thomas at the national secondary schools tournament in Auckland. “That was my first ever game of league. I was just a fill-in because they were short of num-

bers,” said Elia. Once he was there, it didn’t take long for the scouts to take notice. “I played pretty well up there and from that tournament I got two offers, one from the Warriors and one from the Cowboys,” said Elia. From there, he signed the deal with the Warriors. However, the Crusaders Academy are also after his talents and are hopeful he may decide to stick with the 15-man code.

It’s believed the deadline for Elia to make a final decision is before the New Zealand Secondary Schools rugby squad is selected later in the year. As it stands, Elia says he is leaning in the direction of the Warriors. However, if he does so, he says the option of returning to union in the future isn’t off the cards. The Warriors also recently secured the services of another local youngster. Linwood Keas player Graeme Patu-Vaega’au will join the Warriors in November.

Junior Commonwealth Games medal hopeful lands in a moon boot „„ By Gordon Findlater and Andrew King TALENTED MIDDLE distance runner Nick Moulai should be lining up for a 1500m race in the Bahamas today – but instead he’ll be playing video games in his new moon boot. Moulai, 17, was selected to run for New Zealand in the 1500m and 3000m events at the Junior Commonwealth Games. However, his dreams of

competing in the Bahamas were left in tatters when he partially tore his plantaris tendon while competing in a 3000m race in Hamilton earlier this month. “I got almost 2km in and then it kind of just popped. It was obviously very frustrating. I’m staying positive, though, and I like to think that there will be bigger and better things to come in the future,” said Moulai. He won’t just be playing video

games. While Moulai has been in the moon boot, he’s been doing aqua jogging to keep up his cardio fitness. “It’s so boring,” he jokes. “It’s just lap after lap, so you end up finding people to go with so you can talk through it.” The St Bede’s College student was a medal hope in the 3000m at the Junior Commonwealth Games. In December, he won the 3000m with a time of 8min

16.77sec, shattering a nine-yearold age group national record at the national secondary schools track and field championships in Auckland. That same event is what Moulai’s attention will turn to after he has recovered from his injury. •Another Christchurch medal hope at the Junior Commonwealth Games, Hannah Bates, begins her campaign in the pool today.

Key moments will decide quarter-final – Jeff Wilson „„ By Steve Hepburn FORMER ALL Black and Highlander Jeff Wilson believes the Highlanders should go into Saturday’s quarter-final against the Crusaders with plenty of confidence. Wilson said there were many emotions heading into the game for the Highlanders and they would be sure to harness that. “A couple of the coaches who are there, who were instrumental

in turning the team around and carrying on when Jamie [Joseph] left, are looking to move on,’’ Wilson said. “They [Highlanders] seem to be one of those teams that do not lack for motivation and can use that emotion to their advantage.’’ Highlanders head coach Tony Brown will become assistant coach of Japan after the season, while defence coach Scott McLeod is linking up with the All Blacks.

WOF ALL CAR SERVICING

then you have to go through Christchurch so the way Tony has approached it you might as well play them in the quarterfinal early on. “And looking at the play-offs, the quarter-finals, every other game is away. So we’ve got the benefit of a local derby in Christchurch.’’ The Highlanders made a slow start to the season, losing three of their first four games, but have lost just once since then, going

down to the Crusaders in early June. Wilson said the Crusaders obviously had a quality and experienced forward pack but the Highlanders had a lot of talent in the backline. He said both sides had the ability to play for the entire 80 minutes and had incredibly strong defences so it was bound to come down to a few key moments. –Otago Daily Times

Wilson said it was an interesting time for the Crusaders. “But now they have lost a couple on the bounce and know they will have to be on their game.’’ Wilson said the fact Brown said before the quarter-final line-up had been decided that he wanted to go to Christchurch and play the Crusaders was a huge advantage. “He wanted the Crusaders, did not want to deal with the travel.

Kiwi homes contain hidden health dangers. Yet first aid for unhealthy homes needn’t cost a fortune. It can make a home more saleable as well as a healthier place to live. Many older homes are cold and damp and sometimes have other hazards such as lead-based paint and asbestos. There are a number of steps to take to make your home more healthy.

If you’re out a lot, but want to increase natural ventilation buy some security window stays or locks that allow you to leave windows slightly open when you’re out. This can be a lot cheaper to buy and run than high-tech systems.

Celine’s back with Sam and the Doctor THE sensational Celine Toner returns to the Hornby WMC this Saturday. Last at the club in April performing ‘Full Circle’ with her sisters, Celine’s next show features her daughter Samantha and long time guitarist Ian ‘e Doctor’ Jeffries. Born in Glasgow, Scotland into a musical family, it was inevitable that Celine would follow the same path. As a teenager, her family emigrated to NZ and there began a wonderful and ful lling musical career. At 13 she was winning talent quests and Country Music Awards all around the country and it wasn’t long before she was venturing internationally with performances across the globe. She has graced such stages as e Grand Ole Opry, e Melbourne Concert Hall, e Sydney Opera House, e Bob Hope Centre in the US and the Chinese National eatre in Beijing. She has toured Australia twice with e Royal Scots Dragoon Guards as well as Tours of New Zealand and the USA.

THE HORNBY CLUB Celine has worked with NZ superstars such as Jodi Vaughan, Brendan Dugan, Patsy Rigger, Suzanne Prentcie, Gray Bartlett, Midge Masden, Larry Morris, Ray Columbus, Tina Cross and many more. Celine, Sam & the Doctor : ‘e Ultimate Party Band’ promise to deliver an exciting repertoire of material - from rock, funk, rock n roll, through to country and pop, covering artists from Beatles to Bruno Mars. One only Christchurch show at the Hornby WMC on Saturday 22nd July. 8pm start. Tickets $20.
