No solution yet for midge problem „„ By Sophie Cornish A SOLUTION has still not been found to eradicate Bromley’s midge plague. A meeting was held on August 7 between city council staff and Coastal-Burwood Community Board members aimed at finding a solution. The city council has spent $800,000 over two years unsuccessfully trying to fix the midge problem from the wastewater plant. Nearby residents say they have had enough of putting up with midges over the years. But a veil of silence remains from the city council about what has emerged from the August 7 meeting. Community board member Linda Stewart said her solution – adding UV protection – was discussed but won’t elaborate on other possibilities.

City councillor Glenn Livingstone refused to discuss the matter with Pegasus Post, saying: “It’s a complex matter and not easily resolved and it’s better if we assemble as much information as possible before putting it out there.” Ms Stewart (left) said her solution would work. “This should’ve been put in place 20 years ago.” She said in the late 1990s, the South New Brighton Residents’ Association fought hard for UV protection. But city council staff said it would only be added if needed. The cost has now increased from less than $5 million in the late 1990s to an estimated $23 million, she said. But Ms Stewart said UV protection takes time, time residents don’t have with warmer weather around the corner.

Tuesday August 22 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

YOU’VE GOT to feel for those people living near the wastewater plant in Bromley. There doesn’t seem to be a solution in sight to sort the midges out (see page 1). Nearby residents have been plagued with them for years and attempts by te city council to eradicate them have not worked. There was a meeting between community board members and city council staff earlier this month to discuss solutions. But, as usual, they aren’t saying anything publicly. The meeting was held behind closed doors. A board member Linda Stewart suggested UV treatment. That looks seriously costly now and it’s a slow burner sort of treatment. With the warmer weather about to hit, the midges will soon be back in force. But what residents and the public need to know is what’s going on. –Barry Clarke

Residents get personal apology from KiwiRail Fashion „„ By Sarla Donovan KIWIRAIL HAS met and apologised in person to Heathcote Valley property owners with fences and structures on the rail corridor. It’s also going to visit each owner in person, to ascertain how they are using the land. About 50 Heathcote residents were shocked earlier this year when they received a letter from KiwiRail saying they needed a “licence to occupy” the company’s land at an annual rate of $350 a year with a yearly increase of two per cent. The alternative was to remove any private structures on the land. David Gordon, on behalf of KiwiRail, apologised in person at a meeting organised by Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson. He told affected residents that even though KiwiRail wanted to formalise the fact that their land was being used by people, they were not going to have the “licence to occupy” requirement or the $350 per annum cost. Ms Dyson said the residents accepted the apology was given in good faith.

Mr Gordon acknowledged the “overwhelming majority” of residents did an excellent job of keeping the grass tidy, and also protected against fires “which KiwiRail didn’t do on their side of the tracks.” The company was determined to do a better job in the future, Mr Gordon said, particularly in light of the number of fires in the area over the last 12 months. Each individual property

would be visited to “get a better understanding of what the residents are doing in regard to their use of the property and in order to keep the land tidy,” he said. Ms Dyson said she was really pleased at the outcome. “It shows a willingness from KiwiRail to remedy what was an unacceptable situation, front with an apology and work on a satisfactory outcome for the future.”

„„ Sophie Cornish A CALL is being made for the New Brighton Police Station to be open on Saturdays. The Coastal-Burwood Communtiy Board has asked police chiefs to open the Seaview Rd station on Saturday morning. The move is being backed by New Brighton Business and Landowners Association’s Paul Lonsdale. “There are concerns by businesses that there has been an increase of shop theft lately and we have been in talks with police on how to mitigate those issues

and find solutions,” he said. Community board member and city councillor David East said police also needed to consider opening longer on weekdays than its current 9am-4pm. City councillor Glenn Livingstone said with the new beachside playground and salt water hot pools, increased police presence in the area would be beneficial. “Having them on site would make a lot more sense.” Currently police are required to come from Papanui for callouts to eastern suburbs during the weekends.

Miss Martin turned the ignition off and climbed out of the window. “I yelled at the young fella and then the emergency services turned up.” She then looked at her vehicle and realised she how fortunate she was. “I am lucky to be here,” she said. Emergency services staff could not believe she was the driver of the rolled vehicle.

Reducing food waste and feeding Kiwis A SUPERMARKET chain’s efforts to minimise its landfill waste are also helping reduce hunger. Since 2011, Countdown stores have partnered with food banks and food rescue organisations to donate food that would otherwise go to landfill. Ferrymead Countdown store manager Amy Campbell says her store, like others around the country, partners with The Salvation Army and local food banks like 0800 Hungry which collect unsold perishable food such as fruit, vegetables and bread. “For food that isn’t edible, we partner with local farmers who use the food scraps for their animals.” Ms Campbell said her store tries to reduce the amount of

waste as possible away from landfill. We have one of the most comprehensive food rescue programmes running in our stores, and we’re improving this all the time.” Each year this equates to around $3.5 million of food to food banks, plus an additional $1.2 million of food to farmers as food scraps for their animals. “This is part of our goal towards zero food waste in our supermarkets, and it also

directly helps those New Zealanders who might otherwise go hungry,” says Countdown spokeswoman Kate Porter. Customers can donate too, through specially marked food donation bins in-store which are collected by The Salvation Army and other local food banks. Her Ferrymead customers are very generous, Ms Campbell says. “I think we all need a little reminder sometimes though, so we hope that the new, larger, purple collection box at the front of the stores will help prompt our customers.” People can also donate online through The Foodbank Project. It’s a simple way for everyone to help make sure Kiwis don’t go hungry.

News Smoke alarms need to stay on the ceilings

Call for nominations for road trauma awards

„„ By Mark Thomas - Specialist fire investigator WE HAD a fatal fire in Christchurch last week. So it was not the best week in our office.  Part of what we do is to constantly strive to prevent such things happening by ensuring people have smoke alarms and escape plans.  In the tragic loss in Cashel St (right) there were some smoke alarms. They were correctly installed but we don’t know if they had been maintained. The last one, still sounding when firefighters entered, was in the bedroom where the occupant was found. But this one wasn’t on the ceiling where the backing plate remained.  It had been brought down too low to give adequate warning. Had the alarm just been left on the ceiling, at the highest point in the room, there’s a chance the victim would have had time to escape. Such a little thing!  As always there were kitchen

ORGANISATIONS and people who deal with road accidents will be recognised for their work. The Canterbury Road Trauma Awards will be held at the Road Accident Remembrance Day at North Hagley Park on Saturday, November 4. Nominations for the awards are now being called for. Road Traffic Accident Trauma Charitable Trust spokeswoman, Sarah Dean, said the effects of road trauma extends far beyond the victims involved in the initial incident. The awards are seen as recognition and acknowledgement of this, she said. There are three award categories, Canterbury road trauma award for public service, trauma prevention and community service. The public service award will be for outstanding individuals, teams or organisations, who will receive recognition for their service and contribution to the duty of care for those affected by road trauma.

Nearly always this is because they have left the kitchen and the cooking unattended and returned to fire and smoke. Then they desperately try to fix a situation that is beyond them. Stay in the kitchen!  Most cooking fires will be controllable but only if you’re there when they start. There was a slightly odd fire cause in Woolston on August 12 where a low sun through the window reflected off a magnifying mirror causing curtains to start smoking. This happens occasionally. However, it’s one of those things that most of us would never consider.

Your Local Views Cycling benefits in big ways

News Cycleways are an important part of the bigger transport picture, writes Heathcote Ward city councillor Sara Templeton

Fashion IN THE first dark, cold week of winter this year people braved the morning traffic and headed to work on their bicycles. They were treated to free coffee and doughnuts from the Action Bicycle Club on the corner of St Asaph and Madras Sts and I joined them. I had been told by many nay-sayers that no-one cycles in winter in Christchurch – but the numbers spoke volumes. Between 7am and 8.30am, 275 people cycled through that one intersection. The next morning (also only 4 deg C) more than 600 people were counted cycling through Hospital Corner between 7am and 9am. While these may not seem like large numbers – they do make a real difference. Imagine that each of these

Gardening commuters had chosen to drive into town. Where would they park their cars for starters? The new Lichfield St car-parking building will be our largest and will hold 803 cars when it opens next month.

Motoring

It cost ratepayers more than $30 million to build – that’s more than $30,000 per park. We would need another one just for this small group of winter cyclists! Currently around 31,000 people work in the central city, but by 2018 we are due to have more than 40,000. It is simply impossible for us to build enough parking spaces to cater for them and the only option is to encourage what the experts call ‘mode shift’. Getting people out of

single occupancy cars (which account for 83 per cent of Christchurch commutes) and into carpooling and buses and onto their bicycles is not just ‘good for us’ but the only financially sustainable way for the city to move forward. In October, Christchurch will be hosting the Asia Pacific Cycling Congress, as well as the first National Bike Expo. The local cycling advocacy groups are organising a series of events around them and have dubbed the month ‘Biketober’ (hunt it out on Facebook.) A relatively recent convert to two wheels, I currently commute by ebike to the city council around three times a week, carpooling or busing on other days. I do occasionally drive and know that many people need to and that currently the buses don’t serve our communities well – but having options makes it easier for everyone. Numbers of people using the completed cycleway on the other side of town are steadily increasing and once we’ve got some finished over here we’ll all be reaping the benefits.

Connor Melton crosses in second at Hobart race „„ By Andrew King CASHMERE High’s Connor Melton finished second in his event at the Australian secondary schools cross-country championships. He competed in the 8km under-20 category, which was held on August 13 in Hobart, Tasmania, and finished with a time of 25min flat. “Right before the race, I just focused on being relaxed and was looking forward to running for New Zealand for the first time, which has been a goal of mine for a number of years. However, it was quite daunting eyeing up the competition in the warm-up zone before the race,” Melton, 18, said. He was sitting between third and seventh for most of the race but showed a burst of speed in the final kilometre to edge into second place, 59sec behind Australian winner Joshua Torley. “I was happy to be representing New Zealand for the first time, and meddling while doing so, it made it even more special,” he said. It was a big improvement on his showing at the New Zealand secondary schools cross-country championships in Christchurch from June 17-18, where he finished eighth in the men’s 6km.

However, they played well in a very tight game with not many chances for both teams,” he said. On the school’s Twitter account, they gave thanks to all the supporters at the game on Wednesday and throughout the season. “Without parents, friends and colleagues, these games would never be the same. Thank you very much from the players and coaches.”​ St Andrew’s, also known as ‘the thistles’, will take on St Thomas in the final on August

urch but this team is pushing the 2009 team who were the most successful boys team ever from Cashmere,” Sheat said. With all but one player returning from last year and most returning next year, Sheat hoped the boys can keep the momentum going for a few years. “This has definitely been one of the most enjoyable groups to coach in terms of their dedication and commitment,” he said. Shirley coach Scott Howell said the round three loss means they have the underdog status. Good decisions and limiting mistakes will be key factors in beating Cashmere, Howell said.

What causes OOS? The Department of Labour states: “One of the favourable explanations for OOS is that it is caused by muscles being held tense or tight for too long.’’

These conditions may be caused by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, mechanical compression, or sustained or awkward positions. The shorter and tenser the muscle, the harder it pulls on the places it attaches to (e.g. the bone). When this happens in the forearm the pull at those attachments and tendons causes irritation and inflammation of those areas. This will be noticed as pain in the elbow and wrist. When this happens in the neck and shoulder area, it will be noticed as local pain, stiffness and sometimes headaches. The nerves run right through the muscles. Tension on the muscles causes pressure on the nerves. As the muscles shorten, the nerves running through them have a tendency to both shorten and slide less well. This causes the nerves to radiate pain throughout the arm. Triggerpoints are areas in your muscles, where a few muscle fibres have contracted

FOCUS ON HEALTH Supporting Your Time Honoured Remedy Bowel & Digestive Function Helps Prevent Disease

Keeping your digestive system and bowels functioning efficiently is definitely an important step in obtaining and maintaining good long term health. It is most important to keep the whole digestive and elimination systems of the body working efficiently. Many diseases have been linked with micro-organisms (virus) or a bacterial component. We know that when the digestive system and bowel function are poor we have many more health problems. These include arthritis, digestive problems like reflux and stomach pain, bladder infections, chronic skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rashes, poor eyesight, pain and inflammation, tumors and a weakened immune system just to name a few. Nature’s Sunshine LBS II contains a highly effective blend of natural herbs to support the whole digestive system and it is especially effective at cleansing the lower bowel and intestinal tract. It is commonly used for arthritis, constipation, diarrhea, digestive problems, dry stool, fever, colds and influenza, flatulence, gallstones, gout, skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, urinary infections, liver dysfunction, Candida, weakened immune function and for people who want to keep their health as good as possible. The herbs in LBS II help stimulate the production of digestive fluids and bile for efficient digestion. This alone may help prevent many diseases as a properly working digestive system will itself neutralise many disease causing organisms. LBS II also stimulates peristaltic action of the colon effectively cleansing the colon of any accumulated build-ups of waste material. It also relaxes abdominal cramping and spasms, enhances liver function, purifies the blood, neutralizes acidic conditions, helps destroy intestinal parasites and worms, and fights infection. Keeping your digestive system and bowels functioning efficiently is definitely an important step in obtaining and maintaining good long term health. LBS II and further information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

According to a country Doctor “D.C. Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an important part of a long healthy life. Dr. Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly consumed cider vinegar and honey had excellent health with many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even when well into their eighties. Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar and honey on arthritis can be remarkable with many patients reporting almost total relief after taking a course. As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found regular administration of cider vinegar and honey at the onset of complaints such as the common cold, sinusitis, asthmatic attacks, hay fever, and childhood diseases such as

chicken pox and measles, was accompanied by an improvement in the condition with symptoms either disappearing, or the conditions were extremely mild and soon over. Apple cider vinegar contains all the goodness of the apple in a form that is readily accepted by the body. Scientists have found over 90 different substances in ACV, among them 20 important trace elements, minerals, essential enzymes, a number of different acids including malic acid, amino acids and roughage in the form of potash and pectin. A scientific study at the Shizuka University in Japan has proven ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It can destroy free radicals, which are a major factor in ageing.) and also the ACV can

Emma’s back! THAT’S right folks, Emma Palaamo has returned to the Richmond Club Bistro, and this time she is running it! Emma last worked at the Club when her parents Bev and Steve Palaamo were running the Bistro and Restaurant pre-EQ. Unsure of what she wanted to do when she left school Emma decided to attend university where she earned a degree in English and Psychology. “I’ve wondered if I’d ever use my degree, but I love being in the kitchen. Cooking’s in my blood. It’s what I’m used to,” said Emma. Largely trained by her father, Emma said she was nervous when she was initially offered running the Bistro. “My parents have such a good reputation and I don’t want to let Dad down. The reaction to my menu and cooking has been great, and regular members are very happy to see me back.” With her first few weeks spent gauging what diners wanted, Emma is confident she has streamlined the menu to provide a selection to satisfy everyone. “I’ve listened to what they want and have taken heed. by bringing back the old with new. I’m also doing blackboard specials and two course specials, as well as introducing a Kids’ menu.” The Club Bistro is open for LUNCH Tuesday to Sunday (Brunch), for DINNER Wednesday to Sunday and is also available for private functions.

PERSONALISED PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS

Enrolling now for 2018 Principal’s Report Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste and Kumusta. Greetings to our Community. Last year Linwood College and a group based on the East Christchurch community centres undertook a major community consultation about our school. This opportunity to be involved in the vision for the redevelopment of Linwood College was whole-heartedly embraced by the community. Over 1300 people responded with many of these responses being face-to-face conversations. A variety of themes arose out of these conversations with the dominant being that: Linwood College should nurture personal excellence by providing varied opportunities to meet individual needs. The school should foster a ‘love to learn’ culture that creates high levels of achievement and success in ways that are accessible for all. This theme drives everything that we do and at present it is being applied to how our students select their senior

National Fagasa Speech Competition subjects. Our own LC experience, that Last month the Samoan National Fagasa speech of our families and whãnau and formal competition was held in Woolston at the EFKS church. Congratulations to Vai Mariner - 1st equal research, all agree that for many for Year 13, Titi Ma Sun - 4th for Year 13 and Gloria teenagers the process of selecting Su'a - 2nd for Year 11. This was an outstanding subjects becomes more personally result especially considering that they were up important and meaningful when part against students from the Auckland and Wellington of considering wider career pathways. regions! This is why LC now calls our Years 7-10 Vai Mariner- 1st equal for Year 13 curriculum the ‘Learning Pathway’ and Photo provided by Ana Mulipola Years 11-13 the ‘Career Pathway’. Yes, education is full of jargon but in this Gateway to our Future case, there actually are some helpful phrases that enhance understanding. Two such terms are Backward This year in ‘Gateway’ Linwood College students have work experience in a wide Mapping and UBD, Understanding range of industries and have been gaining some valuable skills. by Design. A useful overall summary sentence is, “Start with the end in mind and work backwards.” To support this way of thinking we have redesigned the Career Pathways booklet and subsequent processes to link school subject choices with pathwayunderstanding. It is about positioning teenagers to be future-focussed: thinking ahead, playing to their First Aid Health and Fitness strengths and accepting challenges. Ngã mihi nui to our community as the positive activity of the year continues. I am always keen to meet people if any member of the community wishes to talk to me about anything. My door is open.

Emerging Leaders

As the newly appointed Performing Arts teacher, when I first came to Linwood College I was quick to see the wonderful talent that our school had and sought a musical which our students and families would enjoy. Settling on a Maverick Musical called, ‘Wolfstock’ (written by Mary McMahan with music by Donald Woodward), this was the perfect challenge for our students.

With time and practice the students thrived in this environment and the end product was exciting, funny and dynamic. I am exceptionally proud of my students and the effort that they put in. To all the parents who transported, waited, got up super early and gathered costumes - thank you so much! We could not have done this without your support. I can't wait for the next one. Mrs Boyce-Da Cruz

In early July, selected students were given the opportunity to attend the annual Christ’s College Emerging Leaders’ Conference, along with representatives from many Canterbury schools. At this conference many inspirational speakers told their own unique stories and passed on quintessential advice for

aspiring young leaders. Callum Lawson, said that the day was an inspiration. His favourite message was from the speaker Joel Bouzaid, that leadership is something that you can own, something that you can bend and mould to suit your traits and strengths, so that you can be the leader you hope to be.

Callum Lawson (Year 13)

Communities of Learning Linwood College belongs to two Communities of Learning. Tamai is the schools of Bamford, Bromley, Linwood Avenue, Linwood College, Linwood North, Tamariki and Te Waka Unua. The other is Aupaki: Heathcote Valley, Linwood College, Mount Pleasant, Our Lady Star of the Sea, Redcliffs and Sumner. We are very excited about the rich opportunities that lay ahead for our tamariki within these learning communities or kãhui ako from early childhood through to secondary school and beyond for many years to come.
