LINCOLN RD RAMPAGE Businesses, vehicles vandalised by man in a rage „„ By Andrew King A MAN went berserk smashing cars, restaurant and bar windows, pot plants and a bus in Addington yesterday. Police arrested the offender on Lincoln Rd after he smashed a number of car and business windows, using anything he could get his hands on at 1.26pm. He also threw a sugar bowl through the Addington Coffee Coop’s front window and used a large piece of concrete to attack Maxine’s Palace Chinese Restaurant. Witnesses said it lasted about 10min and “extreme violence” and “a lot of swearing” before police arrived. The arrested man is a regular sight and usually sits on the footpath in Lincoln Rd. No-one was injured. Sullivans Irish Pub was one of the worst affected, with a sign thrown through a window and several others smashed in. •Turn to page 4

CAUGHT: Police arrest the alleged offender without incident on Lincoln Rd at 1.35pm. Inset: Sullivans Irish Pub’s window was smashed with its own sign.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK LIFE CAN be unpredictable and that was the case for Addington businesses yesterday. A ho-hum early Monday afternoon became mad Monday when a man went berserk, smashing windows and anything else in his path on Lincoln Rd and with anything he could get his hands on. We have the article and photos on pages 1 and 4. Police got there fairly quickly as did our photographer and reporter. The ferocity and speed of the attack took business owners and onlookers by surprise. On page 3 we reveal a possible solution to the traffic congestion that the Halswell Junction Rd and Springs Rd roundabout causes. And in sport (page 11) Cashmere High are one game away from their first Thompson Trophy basketball title. They play Christ’s College in tonight’s final. Go Cashmere. – Barry Clarke

Halswell Junction Rd congestion fix RELIEF IS in sight for commuters at the congested roundabout of Halswell Junction and Springs Rds. A traffic signal will be installed before the roundabout on Halswell Junction Rd to combat the 2km line of traffic which builds up daily. New Zealand Transport Agency journey manager Lee Wright said people have significant delays at the roundabout during the morning peak – from 6-10am. “Some mornings it Malcolm Lyall can take more than 12min for people to travel along Springs Rd and enter the roundabout because of the constant flow of traffic travelling north-west along Halswell Junction Rd,” Ms Wright said. She said there are often lines of traffic backed up for more than 2km while people wait for a safe gap to enter the roundabout. The new signal will relieve the delay by several minutes and improve safety during the morning rush.

“It is frustrating for drivers and also risky as some motorists try to enter the roundabout when it is not safe to do so,” Ms Wright said. The signal will be installed 80m before the roundabout on the Halswell side of Halswell Junction Rd. Two sensors will also be installed – one 200m before the new traffic signals, and another on Springs Rd, 50m before the roundabout. The signal will only be used to manage traffic during the

morning peak. Ms Wright said the two sensors will ensure traffic is not stopped unnecessarily and the majority of people travelling on Halswell Junction Rd will not notice any delays. Give way rules will still apply at the roundabout, even if cars have got a green light. “The green light will give drivers permission to approach the roundabout, but they will still need to obey the road rules and give way to oncoming traffic once they are at the

Businesses plan mass trespass of shoplifters „„ By Sophie Cornish FED UP business owners are hoping to take matters into their own hands by mass trespassing shoplifters and troublemakers from New Brighton Mall stores. The plan works on the same principle as a trespass notice from a shopping mall, except those caught stealing will be banned from every business that signs up to it. Paul Lonsdale New Brighton Business and Landowners Association manager Paul Lonsdale is behind the idea. “It sends a clear message that we’re not going to tolerate this sort of behaviour out in New Brighton,” he said. “If one member wants to trespass someone from their business, then they are trespassed from all the businesses,” Mr Lonsdale said. He set up a similar scheme in the central city in 2007 when he was involved with the Central City Business Association. Mr Lonsdale claims the programme was very successful.

Man goes on rampage •From page 1 Owner Mark Sullivan said it was a real pain to have to shut down while the damage was being repaired. “He was in the middle of the road throwing things at cars and attacked a bus,” he said. Sergeant Mike Jackson said it would appear the man had mental health issues and has done “a lot of damage.” The man was arrested without a struggle, but swore at officers as they put him in the police vehicle. Mosaic by Simo manager Sumeet Misra said they occasionally gave the offender food. It appeared he had just snapped, he said. The man had tried to throw a pot plant through the restaurant window and when he couldn’t he just smashed it on the floor before continuing to smash things in the car park.

News Fast food outlet angers residents „„ By Gabrielle Stuart A NEW McDonald’s on Ferry Rd has been given the tick of approval by the city council – but not by the community. Many residents are angry they were not given a chance to have a say on the plan, which has been approved by the city council without any community consultation. The site chosen for the new restaurant, on the corner of Ferry Rd and Heathcote St, is less than 1km from two primary schools, and two early childhood centres. It is 2.4km from the fast food outlets around Eastgate Shopping Centre, which include another McDonald’s, a KFC, Burger King and Dominos Pizza. St Anne’s School principal Dallas Wichman said having fast food so close would be very tempting for children walking to or from school. “When schools are trying to teach healthy eating and those smells are constantly wafting over the fence it’s pretty hard to get the message across, and I expect we’ll have similar issues,” he said. A petition was organised by Linwood community members last year asking the city council to put restrictions on where fast food

had heard a lot of concern from parents about the plan. She said it was unfair they were not given a chance to have a say, or to talk about conditions set for the restaurant. The restaurant has been approved to open 24 hours, seven days a week, which she believed would cause problems. “There’s enough trouble around here without people hanging around at all hours,” she said. A McDonald’s Restaurants NZ spokesman said it had worked through the proper resource consent process. “Our local franchisees are celebrating 30 years in Christchurch this year, and as with any new restaurant development, we are sensitive to the communities in which we operate,” he said.

News Superstar Adams comes to Chch „„ By Gordon Findlater HUNDREDS OF aspiring basketball players flocked to Cowles Stadium and the Celebration Stadium to see NBA star Steven Adams. The Oklahoma City Thunder centre was joined by teammate Andre Roberson and the team’s coach Billy Donovan. Other than getting the chance to interact with the NBA star, one of the highlights of the day was being introduced to MVP Russell Westbrook who talked via facetime (video cellphone call) with Roberson. Tickets for the first ever Steven Adams Camp held in Christchurch sold out in under an hour. The camp was the first of three run around the country by Sports Pathways. The objective of the camps is to provide an opportunity for youth players to train with him and expert coaches. While in Christchurch, Adams also visited the Nga Hau E Wha National Marae.

Keep your dog on a leash as lambing begins

DOGS MUST now be kept on a leash as lambing season gets under way. There will soon be hundreds of lambs around Halswell Quarry, Mt Vernon, Sugarloaf, Scarborough Hill, Greenwood Reserve, Godley Head Reserve, Castle Hill Reserve and Montgomery Spur Reserve. Matt Rose, a city council ranger based at Victoria Park, said signs have been put up on Port Hills tracks alerting visitors to the lambs, but he has noticed people are still walking and biking in the area with their dogs roaming free. There have been cases in the past where dogs have chased

crucial time for lambing and it’s important that dogs are kept on a lead,” said Mr Rose. City council reserves are used for sheep grazing by farmers who hold a licence. The grazing is an important management tool for the grassland/tussock areas of the Port Hills and helps to reduce fire risk by keeping grass short and reducing the spread of woody weeds. Mr Rose said, if someone comes across a lamb that seems abandoned, it is usually best to leave it there, write down the location and call the city council’s call centre. In many cases the ewe has

She asked people using Port Hills tracks to keep their distance from stock, leave gates as they found them and keep their dogs under control. Fines of $300 can be issued to owners of dogs not kept under effective control and if a dog attacks stock the owner could face prosecution by the city council.

Bold vision for once-proud hospital

Mega-facility work to start next year at Denton Park

„„ By Julia Evans WORK ON the new $38 million mega-facility at Denton Park is scheduled to start in late next year. The Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure Centre will be sited at the park after months of debate and controversy. The facility is still in the planning stage and it will go into design at the end of this year. But south-west residents shouldn’t expect to be using the facility until the middle of 2020. Although at this stage, these are only indicative dates. Sports clubs which have been protesting the mega-facility’s construction at Denton Park said they will fight to the bitter end. A petition, started by Hornby resident Mark Peters, has received 1500 signatures – including nine from the original Denton family. Mr Peters said it was started to save the “green heart” of the suburb. “Denton Park is the Hagley Park of Hornby. We really feel passionately about that open space. It’s been there for generations,” he said. He said he is trying to get the voice of the community out there.

The Princess Margaret Hospital was once the jewel in the crown of the Christchurch District Health Board writes Cashmere Community Board member Lee Sampson A lack of investment over time along with the arrival of the new facilities at Burwood have left The Princess Margaret Hospital teetering on the edge of demolition. Admittedly conditions for patients at TPMH are poor to say the least, and these structures are not easily modernised, nevertheless, these iconic buildings still stand proud, almost oblivious to what the natural environment has thrown at them in recent years. So why demolition? TPMH is nestled at the foot of the Port Hills in Cashmere on a parcel of land valued at around $30$35 million. Conceivably, if the CDHB could demolish these buildings ‘cheaply’ they’d make a ‘quick buck’ to help balance the books. In reality, demolition costs alone will stretch to several million, which this CDHB doesn’t have either with

their ongoing stand-off with the Ministry. So the make-do health services and tired facilities have an agonising short term reprieve as this frustrating state of limbo continuous, equally untenable to all concerned parties. However, there is one key missing piece to this puzzle, that’s the broader logic as to why the CDHB are seeking to demolish TPMH at all? No due diligence has been provided to support this tact, besides a somewhat related high level business case for Burwood. Moreover, the engineering assessments generally indicate TPMH structures to be pretty sound at around 35 per cent to 67 per cent NBS with ‘minor to moderate’ earthquake

damage, engineers further note the main buildings could be ’significantly stronger’ than the current CDHB modelling suggests. What’s more TPMH’s vast 40,000m2 of floor space would cost taxpayers about $300-$400 million to re-construct in today’s money – so potentially the remaining value of the structures could seriously eclipse that of any land sale. Now the predicament, Burwood is indeed built so we frankly don’t require this capacity at TPMH. So, what are the options? Well the CDHB seemingly favour demolition, then cramming most other services (including mental health) into Hillmorton Hospital amongst others. Personally, I prefer a slightly bolder vision; this would

involve upgrading and consolidating existing services and others, along with introducing a community-orientated suite of services at TPMH – ie an integrated health facility; together with re-purposing redundant spaces through partnerships with the market, possibly Ngai Tahu. An obvious synergy is the aged healthcare or the retirement sector to assist our continued wave of ‘baby boomers’ – this would certainly help the CDHB to balance the books to a greater extent that the pocket change and lessor community outcomes demolition offers. Finally, we must acknowledge the fact these are exceptionally challenging times for the CDHB, and staff work tremendously hard to maintain service levels but I can only hope that a newlyformed government on September 23 can rapidly rebuild the relationship between the Ministry and CDHB to allow room for considered thought and vision – before all of our crown jewels are sold off. Regardless, health services should continue to be provided from TPMH site to support the ‘day to day’ needs of our growing communities. •If you would like to share your own opinion email lee. sampson.CBM@ccc.govt.nz

New trails for Adventure park when it reopens THE Christchurch Adventure Park is set to reopen before the end of the year – but it will look very different. About two thirds of the trees in the park have had to be removed because of fire damage, and the 18 mountain bike tracks are being redesigned. The $25 million park has been closed since the tracks, chairlift and zip lines were badly damaged in February’s Port Hills fire, which hit three months after it opened. Christchurch Adventure Park spokeswoman Maree Wilson said there was a huge amount of damage across the park.

She said the whole shape of the hill had changed since the fire. “It’s the logging operation that has caused a lot of damage, with the removal of the trees. So because of that there’s a huge job ahead to get the trails up and running,” she said. A replacement haul rope for the chairlift recently arrived from Austria, and new zip lines also needed to be installed, she said. She said about 30 of the adventure park staff had stayed on, and those who were not busy with the repairs had spent their time volunteering in the community.

That included teaching cycle skills at schools, cooking for Ronald McDonald House, helping with classes at the Christchurch City Mission and taking children at Cholmondeley Children’s Centre for bike rides. The park is set to reopen before Christmas, but Ms Wilson said they could not set a date yet because there was still so much work to be done. The recent rain had turned the park into “a big mud pie”, and that made the job harder, she said. She said regular updates would GONE: Two thirds of the trees at the Christchurch Adventure be posted on the Christchurch Park have been removed because of fire damage. Adventure Park Facebook page.

Keeping great vision Can you see everything clearly in each eye when you have glasses on? If the answer is ‘no’ then do not delay a full eye test says Dr Antony Bedggood, a local specialist eye surgeon. A serious eye problem often goes undetected because people do not realise that they could be seen straight away. Cataracts are a very common eye problem and modern surgery makes them very safe and easy to fix explains Dr Bedggood. People who have needed strong glasses most of their lives are able to see well without them almost overnight, colours are bright and near vision is so much easier. Dr Bedggood explains that he uses a state-of the art micro keyhole technique, a tiny incision to the side of your pupil which heals straight away without stitches, and high tech lens implants that are tailored to your specific needs. If crystal clear vision, especially for driving is crucial to you, then surgery is really not that expensive - approximately $4000 per eye

according to Dr Bedggood. Health insurance covers these costs. If a complex implant is required, or if patients prefer to also have clearer reading vision without glasses this often costs a further $800 or more to allow a premium implant to be used, which is not covered by

insurance. There are now so many options that it is worth talking to an experienced cataract surgeon such as Dr Bedggood. He is happy to provide free assessment in one of his regular clinics at Longhurst medical centre in Halswell if you simply want to find out what

the options are. Public hospital surgery is accessible for anyone once cataracts begin to make driving, reading and daily tasks more difficult. If you could have macular degeneration or glaucoma Dr Bedggood states that he offers experienced assessment and treatment right here in Halswell. Both are crucial to diagnose early and treat actively to avoid permanently loosing sight. Macular degeneration should be suspected when anyone over 60 notes their vision has recently changed in 1 eye, particularly if the middle of the vision is obscured or distorted. Sudden changes in vision occur when a network of tiny blood vessels begin to grow on the very inside of your eye, these leak fluid or bleed, which blurs vision. Assessment and treatment should be done as soon as possible, within the week if you have known macular degeneration or have lost central vision in one eye already. Dr Bedggood can

REVERSE LAYUP: Nic Wenmoth’s double-double for Cashmere was part of a balanced team performance.

MID-AIR: Cashmere’s Connor McLaughlin rises above the defence.

Cashmere in Thompson Trophy final „„ By Andrew King CASHMERE HIGH are one game away from their first McDonald’s Thompson Trophy division one basketball title. All that stands in their way is Christ’s College. Since grinding out a 7752 win over Shirley Boys’ High at home last week to book their spot in the final, they’ve been building up to the 7.30pm game at Cowles Stadium today. A win would see them

crowned Canterbury champs and will give them a confidence boost heading into the South Island tournament in Dunedin (September 6-9). Cashmere’s last title was in 2011, when the competition was not yet known as the Thompson Trophy. The key to victory, according to coach Ben Sheat, will be shutting down Christ’s playmakers and sticking to their game plan. “The boys are just focused on going through our

processes and sticking to our rules throughout the game,” Sheat said. “Limiting Max de Geest and Max Darling is important. However, that is much easier said than done. They have some other great players like Tom Crutchley, which makes Darling and De Geest even tougher.” Last week’s game was tied 30-30 at half-time before Cashmere pulled away, scoring 47 points to Shirley’s 22 in the last two quarters. Nic Wenmoth chipped in

with a 12-point, 10-rebound double-double, while Connor McLaughlin contributed 18 points, seven assists and five rebounds backed up by Mitch Mahon with 12 points and six rebounds. Sheat called the performance a “balanced team effort.” Christ’s beat Rangiora High last week 105-70 at Cashmere High. In the division two final, Hillmorton High will take on Papanui High at Cowles Stadium today at 4pm.

The Wedding Singer heads to Halswell THE HALSWELL Drama Group is gearing up to perform another stage production. The group will present The Wedding Singer based on the movie of the same name starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. The show goes back to 1985 – a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room.

Vice-president Tim Gunther said the musical promises to get you up dancing faster than your dad at a wedding. He said the drama group are a small, but passionate group of south-western locals who have been performing for the benefit of their local community for more than 50 years. The cast is made up of members from places including Halswell, Rolleston, Lincoln and Tai Tapu.

The show is to be held September 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23 at the Halswell Community Hall, 450 Halswell Rd. To book tickets go to  www.iTicket.co.nz A pre-show dining offer is also available at The Old Vicarage Café, Bar and Restaurant which has sponsored the show. •For more information email Halswelldramagroup@ outlook.com

Hot tips to prevent stove top fires „„ By Mark Thomas – specialist fire investigator I SEEM to spend some time every week complaining about the number of kitchen fires we’re going to. Not that we are moaning about having to go to them, but we know the inconvenience to anyone who has such a fire. People who suffer them, regularly end up being treated for smoke inhalation after trying to control what happened. Last week was quite a busy one in the kitchen fire department, and a couple of the call-outs triggered messages we all should be aware of.

The first was at Breezes Rd, Aranui, on Thursday and was a perfect example of the danger of leaving something combustible on a stove top. In this case, a plastic coffee grinder was cooked up because the element it was sitting on was turned on by mistake. I’ve seen bread boards,

toasters and tea towels all cause a fire because an element was mistakenly activated. If you persist in storing these things on the stove top, it’s almost inevitable that eventually the obvious will happen. They’re not storage areas. If you’re tempted to use them as such, then quite simply, don’t. The second fire was at Ferry Rd on Friday where a pot of burning oil was carried through the house in an effort to get it outside. Inevitably it was dropped as the flames increased. A fire on the stove top should be handled right there. If it can’t, get out and shut the door. Don’t spread the fire.

Little River Gallery will be presenting works by two artists, Emma Milburn and Jacqueline Morren in their new exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ from this Saturday September 2nd. They are bringing together different geographical cultures, using different media and materials, both with a strong environmental focus from the manmade and natural world. Their work is fabricated by using old traditional techniques yet with a contemporary edge. Emma Milburn’s paintings depict elements that are influenced by the natural environment of remote and isolated South Island wilderness areas and her interaction within this. As a Wilderness Search Dog handler and Visual Tracker, Emma is acutely tuned in to analyse detail along with the ‘big picture’. Colour, shape, shine, shadow, contours,movement and texture influence Emma’s abstract painting style. ”The juxtaposition between my experiences of wilderness, and an urban environment of playing and writing music also bring an awareness of the interaction between space, time and repetition.”

‘Monowai’ original painting by Emma Milburn from the exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ at Little River Gallery from September 2nd

Jacqueline Morren’s fine silver and Pounamu jug ‘Punctuated Equilibrium’ from the exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ at Little River Gallery from September 2nd

For Jacqueline Morren this body of work is a new direction. She sets herself a big challenge to sculpt without training or access to technical tools. At times this has resulted in her having to create her own implements, to aid the stretching & curving of the silver out of one piece, without the use of soldering.

“Maker’s marks are left intentionally; I have no inclination towards smooth perfection. I love discovering the magical combination of metals & Jade until it feels right, usually after a long process. This enables the wonderful greenstone to come to life, to its fullest potential.” The artwork is layered with era’s bygone, present and anticipated future innovation.

The exhibition is running from 2nd until 27th September. For more information, please visit www.littlerivergallery.com

Denture specialists expert at problem solving for patients Ryan Carlton and his team of expert technicians at Dentures Plus in Innes Road are highly skilled in the design and manufacture of flexible partial dentures. “We also use industry-leading injection moulding equipment for all our dentures, Ryan says, “and we provide dentures not only for our own patients, but also for dentists throughout New Zealand.” For anyone experiencing problems with their teeth or gums Dentures Plus offers a free consultation to assess their oral health and possible treatment plans, Ryan says. “People needing first-time dentures or immediate dentures can come directly to us and we will work with their regular dentist or if necessary arrange with another dentist for the extraction of their teeth in preparation for getting dentures fitted,” he says. “Our team are excellent at problem solving for our patients and providing them with a comfortable, functional, natural-looking solution.” Ryan emphasises the importance of keeping dentures clean and healthy to avoid the damage that can occur from wearing them. Dentures Plus offers a full

True

range of products for keeping dentures in tip-top condition, including denture cleaners, brushes and denture baths for soaking the dentures. He particularly recommends Caldent denture cleaner, as it is non-abrasive and effectively removes stains, calculus and plaque. All the products can be purchased at the clinic, or through the Dentures Plus website, www.denturesplus.co.nz. While Christmas is still a few months away, for those people wanting to have new dentures in time for the festive season, now is the time to get the process underway, Ryan says. “By talking to us now, and getting started, the new dentures will be settled in and comfortable by Christmas, so you can enjoy all the festivities without any denture problems.” Dentures Plus is located at 396 Innes Road. To make an appointment to discuss your needs, phone 385 55127.
