Hornby woman’s lucky escape So it was time to buy Lotto tickets „„ By Andrew King A WOMAN who walked away from serious car crash without an injury bought $100 of Lotto and Instant Kiwi scratch tickets to ride her good luck. Graphic designer Nicole Martin’s Toyota Hilux was badly damaged when it rolled five times and ended up on a railway line at the intersection of Barters and Waterloo Rds, Nicole Templeton, about Martin 4pm on Thursday. The 25-yearold from Hornby said she was broadsided by another vehicle driven by a young man. She claims the vehicle went through a stop sign. Miss Martin said she only saw the car briefly before the collision. “There is a big hedge [on the corner] so I saw it at the last second and there was nothing I could do about it,” she said. She believes staying calm saved her. “I think that’s what saved me,” she said.

THE APPROACH: The car that hit Nicole Martin’s vehicle came from the left on Waterloo Rd.

LUCKY: Nicole Martin and the Hilux she walked away from on Thursday. 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. The Instant Kiwi tickets have not been winners, and the Lotto tickets from Saturday night’s draw?: Not lucky either. She would have bought a Ford Ranger (right). “It has a five-star safety rating,” she laughed.

Tuesday August 22 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

SOME PEOPLE are very lucky in life – we have one on our front page today. Hornby’s Nicole Martin could have had a very different outcome when she was struck broadside in Templeton last week. She rolled a few times and her vehicle was a wreck. But she walked away with hardly a scratch. Emergency services were staggered she didn’t even need to go to hospital to be checked over. So when good fortune strikes, it often pays to roll the dice again. Nicole bought herself Lotto and scratchies but alas they haven’t come up trumps. But she’s one lucky girl, nevertheless! Great story on page 3 today. St Thomas rugby forward Caius Faatili scored a last minute try to seal his team’s crucial win. But it could have been a disaster. –Barry Clarke

News St Thomas’ lock zero to hero

Fashion

„„ By Andrew King ST THOMAS’ lock Caius Faatili went from zero to hero when he scored the match-winning try against Rangiora High just minutes after missing a penalty on Saturday. With about three minutes to go and trailing 20-21, St Thomas’ were awarded a penalty almost in front in the UC Championship plate semi-final. Co-coach Paul Burton told Western News yesterday you could have “almost thrown it over”, but Faatili, who came off the bench in the 50th minute, missed. St Thomas’ held on to the ball after the restart, and in the final play of the game, Faatili found himself one-on-one just metres out, crossing the line by the uprights to take the match – and make up for his earlier missed attempt. So the big question: Did he convert his own try? No, he passed that honour to prop Malyche Tafili who duly obliged to give the side their 27-21 win. Burton said Faatili, who reminds him of Australia rugby legend John Eales, did well to bounce back after the missed penalty. St Thomas will host Waimea Combined in the final at 11am, Saturday. Burton said a win there would cap off one of their most successful campaigns to date. “We beat St Bede’s for the first time in 29 years and no team has given us a thrashing this year. I think our biggest defeat has been by about 11 points, including when we faced the top four teams,” he said.

News Young artist gets big opportunity Fashion „„ By Julia Evans IMAGINE SEEING your sculpture on display in the city alongside the likes of Antony Gormley and Ronnie van Hout. That’s about to become a reality for 16-year-old Villa Maria student Ruby Williams. Ruby won the senior section of the Re:ACTIVATE project organised by SCAPE Public Art and will soon see her sketches come to life as a sculpture in Hagley Park. Although the honour doesn’t come with the same $800,000 pay check that Gormley received. Ruby’s design relates to the concept of memory and will involve recreating a tree’s lost limb out of metal mesh. The sculpture will be on display in September for six weeks. The design was of a live tree with its branch previously sawn off due to damage or disease, Ruby said. “Replacing that branch with a wire mesh copy resembling the memory of the limb that used to be there. The city is similar in some regards – it fell during the earthquake and was completely changed, parts of it were gone but not forgotten.”

Engineers from Lewis and Bradford have been tasked with taking Ruby’s idea and making it a reality. She met with the engineers, SCAPE art staff and Botanic Gardens staff to choose the perfect tree.

Your Local Views Western News readers share their thoughts on Denton Park being chosen as the preferred site for the Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure Centre by the Halswell-HornbyRiccarton Community Board

shoppers – not the sports as would be intended for.   Think of the future generations – particularly the youth. Keep them fit – keep them occupied – enable them to have like-minded friends.  The devil finds work for idle hands. Nothing is cheaper than today – long term investment.

Gary Knight – As the official playing ground of Hornby Rugby Football Club, Hornby Cricket Club and featuring various playing fields, the velodrome oval synonymous with the 1974 Commonwealth Games cycling events and close proximity to five schools bears testimony to the ideal siting and much used characteristics of Denton Park. Within this context therefore the siting of the south west pool complex would complement this sporting focused venue. In sheer contrast however, the siting of the Hornby library and service centre here lacks integrity and would totally demean the very nature of Denton Park. Both the service centre and library attracting large attendance would be better suited ideally within or in conjunction to The Hub

Dick Osborne – Definitely not Denton Park!! The city council can spend a bit more money on Hornby (it is needed) and develop Kyle Park properly as there is already too much congestion around The Hub at Hornby!

Colleen Fuller – Can’t believe Denton Park is the preferred option for the “new venue” plus destroying a well used and important venue used by a number of sports clubs in the area. Ridiculous.

The preferred venue, Kyle Park, would allow more car parking and at the same time provide safer walking to and from the sports fields. The longer the asbestos is left in the grounds, the more expensive it will be to remove – as it will have to be one day. Does asbestos ‘leech’ unwanted chemicals into the ground? The only advantage of retaining Denton Park would be to The Hub – more shoppers and maybe some more parking. The parking would be taken up by the

Smoke alarms need to stay on the ceilings „„ 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

fires last week. At two of the four events, people ended up needing ambulance attention for smoke inhalation. 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.

Speed gets checkout operators to nationals

Money MOST PEOPLE are still hunting to find their Onecard by the time Jacinta Dempster and Leia White have finished scanning and packing their groceries. Ms Dempster from Countdown Hornby and Ms White from Countdown Moorhouse will compete at nationals in Auckland at the end of the month. The duo’s sensational service saw them take out the Christchurch North

and South Canterbury group titles. Countdown general manager operations, Brett Ashley, says recognising top checkout operators like Ms Dempster is a crucial part of encouraging great customer service. “We’re serving 2.8 million customers every week and our checkout operators fulfil a very demanding role. Often they are the lasting impression our customers have of their trip to

Countdown,” Mr Ashley said. Competitors were tested using mystery shoppers to assess their friendliness, presentation, speed, accuracy and overall customer service. Twenty other finalists will join them at the national competition, which Mr Ashley believes is designed to support and motivate team members while helping to grow their careers with Countdown.

St Thomas look to score first title in Connetics final SPORTS TREBLE: Christchurch Girls’ High have pulled off the three-peat, winning the UC Cup for the third time on Wednesday by beating Burnside-Rangi 36-7.

Girls’ High pull off three-peat „„ By Andrew King CHRISTCHURCH Girls’ High are the undisputed champions of girls rugby in the city after clinching their third consecutive UC Cup title on Wednesday. They made short work of Burnside-Rangi 36-7, running in six tries at the Ilam Fields to record their second consecutive undefeated season in the UC Cup. Their last loss was against Motueka Girls’ High in the Crusader regional play-off last year. Coach Jaime Livingstone said it was rewarding to see them enjoying their success, especially for the year 13s who have been part of all three title victories.

“The girls deserved the win having dominated the roundrobin,” he said. During their nine regular season games, they scored 533 points and only conceded 126. They will now look to add a national title to the cabinet. The girls take on Southland Girls’ High on Saturday for the South Island title. A win against them will qualify them for the national top four tournament in Palmerston North. “The girls are looking forward to the challenge and this game will give us a good indication where girls rugby in Canterbury sits on a national scale,” Livingstone said.

„„ By Andrew King ST THOMAS will be chasing their maiden title in the Connetics first XI football competition when they take on St Andrew’s in the final. Some excellent finishing saw them get past Burnside High, known as ‘the beasts’, 5-3 in last week’s semi-final at English Park. Now they will play the team, known as ‘the thistles’, on August 30 at English Park. St Thomas’ coach Richard Washington said they were pleased with the result but know there are areas to work on before the final. “We have a few areas we will tidy up in the next few weeks and aren’t happy how we conceded some goals but rapt with the reply and overall grit and determination of the boys as Burnside is a very capable team. And to be fair, some of their goals were top shelf,” he said. Burnside coach David Williams said he was proud of his team and the way they played in the semi. “We knew the winner would be the team who defended the best due to both teams having a very good attack and, unfortunately, we missed out,” he said.

BUSINESSES

OPPORTUNITY: St Thomas will win their maiden title if they get past St Andrew’s College on August 30 at English Park.

Washington said St Andrew’s have a lot to play for and St Thomas are wary of that. “It will be a great game I’m sure, with incredible youth talent across the park,” he said. The saints beat the thistles 1-0 in round 11 to take the top of the table position from them, which they did not relinquish for the remainder of the season. “They will be ready for the final and fully aware of the

enormous task ahead of them. . . round-robin play counts for nothing,” Washington said. St Andrew’s coach Matt Jansen said it was an awesome feeling to make the final and the boys were really keen to bring it home. “They [St Thomas] have been a really competitive team this year. They beat us in the regional finals in futsal, then beat us 1-0 to win the league, so now it’s spoiling time,” he said.​​

Commitment, Achievement, Resilience, Respect

Ensuring Market a sell-out success inclusive education Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste. Kumusta. Haere mai ki Te Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka. Warm greetings to the Hornby High School community. What an extraordinary and diverse community we have at Hornby High School. Regardless of race, gender preference, religion, culture, or academic and sporting ability, there is a place for everyone. We are proud of the work we do to include all learners regardless of background or ability, and to create personalised learning pathways. There will always be some degree of discomfort with such diversity for some members of any community, and we work hard to promote a positive environment in which we support individual students to be the best they can be. At this year’s School Trustees Association conference in July it was reassuring to hear Human Rights Commissioner Mr David Rutherford talking about school bullying, citing the KiVa programme as an example of a programme that is proven to reduce bullying behaviour. This is one of the four initiatives we use to build and maintain strong positive relationships in our kura. Further work continues to ensure we have a kura that welcomes and accepts everyone. At a meeting last term, the Board of Trustees decided to remove gender labels from our uniform items to meet the gender identity needs of all students. The promotion of human rights for the LGBT community is a common thread when our students identify positive community action projects with which they would like to be involved, reflecting their underlying sense of fairness and equity. Our students have great heart. The Manaiakalani initiative continues to accelerate achievement for our tamariki. Latest research at Hornby High School and across our cluster shows students are making one and a half to two years gain in their learning in the course of one year – exceptional stuff. The Manaiakalani programme uses a common pedagogy across the whole cluster, called “Learn Create Share”, and uses the benefits of digital devices to support these three cornerstones to effective education. Some of the work coming from our students is of extraordinary depth and quality. This is why we ask all whanau to invest in a Chromebook for every child. Remember that we are often able to help if this proves to be too difficult. Our Hornby schools cluster is forming a charitable trust to support the Manaiakalani programme and the provision of devices for our students. These are exciting times. Please follow my thinking on issues that are both specific to Hornby High School and also of more general educational interest, on my Principal’s blog “Whakatauki: He waka eke noa”, after all, we are all in this together – whakataukihewakaekenoa.blogspot.co.nz/. Ngā mihi nui Robin Sutton Principal

Term 2 ended on an exciting note with market day held at school. Students from Years 7, 8 and 9 had worked throughout the term on designing products to market and sell. They learnt many skills related to running a business and made their products to sell on their stalls. On market day there was a huge support from parents and whanau, and local primary schools as well as the staff and students at Hornby High. Many of the businesses sold all of their products and measured their success with generous profits.

Construction milestone marked with sod lifting ceremony A sod lifting ceremony took place recently to acknowledge the construction of the new Hornby High School buildings. Members from the Te Taumutu Rūnanga blessed the site and the Associate Minister of Education, Tim Macindoe, lifted the sod, which will be kept until the opening ceremony when construction is complete. Landmark event: from left; Maddison Hickford (Head Girl), Jaleel Arataura Collins, Tim Macindoe (Associate Minister of Education), Tanaya Pullen, Kaye Banks (Board of Trustees Chair), Robin Sutton (Principal), and Billy Roper (Head Boy).

Mai Biz winners take up Students take the Next Steps to Leadership Te Wero Pakihi challenge Four Hornby High students were part of a group of 50 students from around the country who met in Auckland to participate in Te Wero Pakihi – The Business Challenge. The students were members of the winning Mai Biz team. Te Wero Pakihi is all about challenging and expanding the students’ horizons and inspiring them to be the leaders of tomorrow. While in Auckland they worked on a campaign for Air New Zealand and how they could improve areas of their business.

Sixty one Year 11 and 12 students have just returned from a threeday Next Steps Leadership Camp at Kaiapoi. The students took part in activities including rogaining, abseiling and workshops with a focus on leadership. This year’s prefects also talked about their experiences as school leaders. Pictured at right are students taking part in the Hornby Pride activity, at back: Cameron Orlowski McWhinnie, Rylu Dequita, Guy Cooper, Pisarl Ouk, Carl Santos and Mark Bandiala.

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

15

break down cholesterol formations in the blood vessels. ACV and H is a powerful tonic that also promotes digestion, assimilation of nutrients and elimination of waste, and helps neutralize any toxic substances that enter the body. It is important to note not all cider vinegar is made in the traditional way and results are likely to prove disappointing with some other vinegars. 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!

McKenzie Lifestyle Village McKenzie Lifestyle Village is in the final stages of completion. There are still great sites available and we also have a number of affordable villas ready for immediate occupation. Our beautiful Leisure Centre is available and the pools, gymnasium and library and lounge area are in use daily. Outside, the bowling green is very popular along with Petanque, Mini-golf and Table Bowls. The residents enjoy an enviable resort style lifestyle. It is also surprisingly affordable. A former Christchurch resident, Judith, says “We couldn’t have all this for what we are paying if we were still in Christchurch.” Another resident, David, says “my wife and

I have never been so well off as we are now we moved to McKenzie Lifestyle Village.” There are fuller testimonials on the village homepage at mlv.co.nz. Geraldine is a great little town with a very pleasant microclimate. There is plenty to do in and around the town with art galleries, theatre and cinema, interesting shops and boutiques, two museums and a wide range of good places to eat. For the more adventurous there are river and forest walks nearby, opportunities for biking and a choice of two local golf clubs.

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

REAL ESTATE Live an exceptional lifestyle 84 Harts Creek Lane, Clearwater, Harewood

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | Listing # PI48268

Elegant and intelligent design marks this as a home for an exceptional contemporary lifestyle. Designed by Architects Plus and built in 2013, it offers the peace of mind that comes with post-earthquake construction, including RibRaft foundation and Celcrete cladding. Occupying a prime setting, with lake and golf course views, this tranquil retreat is just minutes from amenities and a short stroll from coffee at Clearwater Resort. Extensive glazing pulls light and views into the home, and sliders in the openplan living ensure seamless flow to a choice of enticing outdoor entertaining spaces. Equipped with a six-burner gas cooktop, butler’s pantry and island bench, the kitchen will satisfy the most exacting requirements, while a spacious dining and casual sitting area, plus additional separate lounge (with gas fire), offer comfort and flexibility. Sumptuous fittings in the master

bedroom, ensuite and WIR add everyday luxury, while an additional downstairs bedroom with ensuite is ideal for guests. Three more double bedrooms (or an office/ den option with glorious views to the mountains) share a smart family bathroom with under-tile heating. Double internalaccess garaging plus a generous storage bay, beautifully landscaped grounds and a suite of high-spec fittings complete this impeccable home. Presented in immaculate condition, this property invites you to enjoy exceptional living. The owners have committed to a new building project and must sell their muchloved home - don’t miss the opportunity to make it yours. To arrange a private viewing, give me a call today Deb Harvey of Harcourts Gold Papanui (Licensed Agent REAA 2008) on 352 6166 or mobile 027 220 6565

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.
