Drugs, boozing splits residents „„ By Gabrielle Stuart TENANTS AT a social housing complex are living in fear of other residents, who they say are menacing, have threatened to shoot their pets, and party almost every night. Some have been recently released from prison. But the tenants say the

trust in charge has ignored their concerns. The Ōtautahi Community Housing Trust took over management of the city council’s 2300 social houses in October last year. Since then, residents at the 25-unit Pickering Courts social housing complex in Bristol St, St Albans, say prison parolees, drugaddicts and drunks have been

moved into the complex. Police are regularly called. Resident Lynda McKenzie distributed 1000 copies of a flyer outlining their concerns around the neighbourhood last month. In a recording supplied to The Star, two tenants make threats. “I’ve got my rifle back, bro . . . their f***ing dog s**t, their

cat s**t, they gonna drop dead, motherf***ers . . . I’ve got a gun . . . if I see it around my f***ing number they’re dead, shot f***ing dead,” a male voice said on the recording. The recording was made by a former tenant, who told The Star he left the complex in April because he and his wife were afraid for their safety.

He said the trust promised to investigate, but the tenants were still allowed to live there. Trust chief executive Cate Kearney said yesterday said two “substantial complaints” had been made to the trust about issues at the complex, and said both had been investigated thoroughly. •Story, pages 4-5

WHO IS Glenn Delaney? The new Canterbury rugby coach, of course. And on pages 13 and 14 reporter Bridget Rutherford talks to him in our regular Our People environment. A former newspaper colleague of mine Jimmy Doyle thought Bridget did a pretty good job profiling Razor Robertson a few months ago. Bridget was put on the case again this week to profile Robertson’s successor, and I’m sure Doyley will agree she’s done another top job. Delaney had a close run thing with the Ranfurly Shield against Otago but in true Canterbury style he was never that worried the shield was going south. For us Cantabrians it’s all about planning and having a never say die attitude. Delaney has good rugby roots – he cut his teeth for Linwood, probably at Linfield Park, a complex I helped raise money for as a kid with runathons during my not so stunning time in a green and black jersey. So Doyley, I hope you enjoy Bridget’s read. – Barry Clarke

At a Glance THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

WALKIES ON WHEELS

This week in history saw the formation of the Canterbury Automobile Association on September 4, 1903. On September 5, 1985, French agent Dominique Prieur, convicted over the bombing of the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior, was transferred from Mt Eden Jail to Christchurch Women’s Prison. On September 5, 1988, Stanley Reid, New Zealand’s longest serving prisoner (43 years) died in Christchurch. On September 6, 1878, the railway to Dunedin was opened. On September 7, 1850, the first Canterbury Association settlers sailed from Plymouth, England, on the Charlotte Jane, Randolph and Cressy. On September 7, 1863, Christchurch’s first murder trial took place. G. Lumley was convicted. On September 8, 1850, the Sir George Seymour leaves Plymouth with settlers.

A little dog in a pram is capturing hearts everywhere she goes in Rolleston. Gemma the cairn terrier loves her daily walks and hates to be left at home. When she was diagnosed with immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, which makes her tire easily, her owner Sue Smit decided to take her for walks in a pram instead. Each morning they walk along Goulds Rd. •Most popular dogs, page 9

From blockbusters to city theatre The Hobbit, Avatar and now Sister Act „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding FROM DESIGNING costumes to fit Orlando Bloom to helping create blockbuster film sets – John Harding and Lesley Burkes-Harding know how to transform a show into a full visual experience. Audiences will get to see an endless stream of costumes embedded with sequins and neoGothic style sets designed by the Akaroa couple in Showbiz Christchurch’s latest production of Sister Act. Hundreds of costumes were designed by Burkes-Harding for the show, while her husband created the set which has toured all over the country. Between them, they have 65 years of experience working in television, consortium productions and major films including Avatar, King Kong and The Lord of the Rings. While working on The Hob-

bit, Burkes-Harding designed the costumes for Bloom in his role as the elf Legolas. Like most of the productions the couple have worked on, the design for Sister Act has been a large undertaking. “It is always a big job . . . there are many hundreds of sequin fabrics that I bought for that show,” Burkes-Harding said. She said in theatre, costumes need to be sturdy and well

designed to suit the different people who wear them. It is similar for Harding, who said every set he designs needs to be “elastic” to adapt to each venue on which it is staged. “One of the first things was solving how to do multiple scene changes, so I came up with the idea of a double conveyor belt,” he said. Other key elements in the set include the use of LED lighting

to recreate the “exquisite” quality of the stained-glass church windows, and a narthex that he found in a recycling yard near Rangiora, which came from church rubble after the February 22, 2011, earthquake. For the couple’s next project, they will recreate the landing of the first French settlers in Akaroa as part of its three-day French Festival. “We can work together, we work separately. It doesn’t really matter, it is always fun,” BurkesHarding said.

In Brief CATHEDRAL DECISION The future of the Christ Church Cathedral will be decided on Saturday. The Anglican Diocese’s synod will vote on three options for the building’s future – restore it, knock it down and build a new Cathedral, or gift the building to the Government. Funding to restore the building is on the table, including city council’s $10 million pledge, a $10 million Crown injection, a $13.7 million pledge from the Great Christchurch Buildings Trust and a $15 million Government loan that would not have to be paid back if certain conditions are met. ELECTRIC VEHICLE HIRE An electric car sharing scheme launched yesterday aims to eventually make 100 cars available at 10 hubs around the city. Twelve Christchurch businesses, including the city council and Environment Canterbury, will be part of the scheme, implemented by vehicle management company, Yoogo. The public will be able to hire an electric vehicle from November at three hubs around the city. •Lianne Dalziel’s column, page 28 BETTER REDCLIFFS TOILETS The lack of public toilets in Redcliffs village is in the spotlight. The Linwood-Coastal-Burwood Community Board has asked city council staff to investigate after concerns from businesses about the public using their facilities. The original toilet block in the park close to Main Rd was damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. NEW BUSINESS MANAGER Paul Lonsdale has taken on the role as the Central City Business Association manager. The role is a part time position which will still allow Mr Lonsdale to be New Brighton Business and Landowners Association manager.

ARTISTIC: John Harding was a costume designer on James Cameron’s blockbuster film Avatar. Lesley Burkes-Harding designed costumes for actor Orlando Bloom in his role as Legalos in The Hobbit films.

Anger leads to war at suburban „„ By Gabrielle Stuart A “LITTLE community of misfits” – that’s how the residents at St Albans’ Pickering Courts social housing block describe themselves. The 25 units are tucked away down a long driveway on Bristol St, surrounded by fashionable homes and leafy yards. If you didn’t know it was there, you wouldn’t find it. For years, the Pickering Courts residents have lived there just as unobtrusively. They created a garden in their courtyard, held regular barbecues, and even started their own service awards, given to residents like the elderly man who put out everyone’s bins. But that changed last year after the Ōtautahi Community Housing Trust took over management. They now say they’re at war. In the past year, several people paroled from prison have been moved in. The other residents say the newcomers drink and party almost every night. Some say they have been threatened, and most say they no longer feel safe at night.

ANGRY: Pickering Courts residents Lee Taylor, Dawn Sutherly and Margaret Ashby. (Right) – Lynda McKenzie has delivered flyers outlining safety fears at the complex. In the past few months, the police have been called multiple times to the units. Last week two non-resident males were seen wandering the complex in their underwear. Two weeks ago, a row of units were vandalised with spray paint. One older resident had his garden hose cut up into little pieces. He had a history with the other

residents: Initially, he hadn’t got along with them, but he had begun helping out by watering the public garden and had become a “pillar of the community”, they said. Having his hose cut up was something they all took personally. Resident Lynda McKenzie was the first who decided to fight back. She has lived in the block for about 10 years and took great pride in her little unit, which

smelled of lavender, had ivy growing over the balcony, and was decorated with floral wallpaper and fairy ornaments. She took even more pride in the community, planting trees there, maintaining the garden, and organising events for the residents. The change made her furious. “I don’t think I’ll ever forgive the trust for destroying this,” she said.

She said she had contacted the trust many times to talk about the problems, but believed she was being ignored. So she wrote and printed 1000 copies of a flyer to drop at homes around the neighbourhood last month. Written in bold, the headline was: “Do you want a ghetto in the bottom of your garden?” “It appears the tenant of choice of the trust is male, parolee, with a drug/alcohol addiction,” the flyer read. “We no longer feel safe. We’ve been threatened, our pets have been threatened, and our gardens and homes have been vandalised. Anything not nailed down is stolen,” it continued. “Are you and your family safe? Are your pets at risk? Is your property safe and will this virtual change of purpose of Pickering Courts affect the VALUE of your property?” It finished by listing the contact numbers of the trust chief executive Cate Kearney, and city councillor Vicki Buck, who is one of the trustees. That got a reaction from the trust.

I’m up there trying to keep him settled, with the rest of his drunken friends trying to help but getting in the way,” he said. He called the police at least six times while living there, and complained many times to the trust, he said. Trust chief executive Cate Kearney said yesterday she could not discuss the specific incidents, because it could compromise the privacy of tenants. But she said two “substantial complaints” had been made to the trust about issues at the complex, and said both had been investigated thoroughly. She said the trust did not have any contract with Department of Corrections to place parolees. She said the Pickering Courts tenancy manager visited regularly. “Over the past week, because we were made aware of tenant

communications, we have attempted to visit every single tenant within Pickering Court and during those visits we received no significant complaints,” she said. Lee Taylor, one of the residents the others described as a troublemaker, was home when The Star visited. He admitted he had been in trouble with police, saying they had given him a pair of “silver bracelets” a few weeks ago. But one of his neighbours, 80-year-old Dawn Sutherly, stood up for him staunchly. “Lee’s my right-hand man,” she said affectionately. She had lived at Pickering Courts for 20 years. “When I first moved here it was

lovely. All you had to do was call and someone would give you a hand,” she said. That had changed when the new residents arrived, she said. Another of their neighbours, Margaret Ashby, made her way slowly down the path to see them. Lee gently took her arm and helped her across the uneven grass so she could sit in the sunshine with them. Hers was one of the houses which was vandalised, which had upset her. But she was more upset by the fact her neighbours were fighting, she said. “It shouldn’t be like this. We should be living in peace and harmony,” she said.

Ailing Anderton honoured „„ By Bridget Rutherford AN AILING Jim Anderton was presented with an insignia for his services to Parliament at a special investiture ceremony on Sunday. The long-standing politician was awarded the insignia of a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit by GovernorGeneral Dame Patsy Reddy, after being named on the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in June. A small group of family and friends, former prime minister and Labour Party leader Helen Clark, and Mayor Lianne Dalziel, were at the ceremony. Mr Anderton, 79, is frail and was in a wheelchair at the ceremony. It was held at Nazareth House, where he is now living. Since the February 22, 2011, earthquake, Mr Anderton and former National MP Philip Burdon have been campaigning for the restoration of the Christ Church Cathedral. The Anglican Diocese’s synod will vote on the Cathedral’s future on Saturday. Mr Burdon said Mr Anderton was “particularly frail” due to old age. “He was really very frail and there was no way he could go to

Wellington for the ceremony,” Mr Burdon said. “It was a very nice and moving ceremony for someone the community has great respect for.” Ms Clark said it was a privilege to be at the ceremony and she could not think of a more deserving recipient. “Jim’s contribution to New Zealand has been massive for decades.”

Mr Anderton was MP for Sydenham, now Wigram, from 1984 to 2011. The seat is now held by his hand-picked successor Labour MP Megan Woods. Dr Woods said she could not attend the ceremony, but was thrilled his contribution had been recognised. “I had a scheduled street corner meeting and Jim would not

tolerate me missing a street corner meeting or my campaign,” she said. “Jim’s been a huge part of south-west Christchurch and gave everyone hope and the belief that politicians can make a difference.” Mr Anderton and his wife Carole could not be reached for comment. After splitting from Labour in 1989, Mr Anderton formed two new political parties. He held a number of portfolios and became deputy prime minister.

Homicide victim named

A CHRISTCHURCH man whose body was found at the Waimakiriri River bed was a motorcycle gang member. Police are treating the death of Bradley Alan Lomax, 24, as a homicide. It was reported yesterday Mr Lomax was a member of the Rebels Motorcycle Club. There was a suggestion he recently left the gang. Mr Lomax’s body was found on the banks of the river near Harrs Rd at 10pm on Monday. The day before, the heavily tattooed Lomax posted on his Facebook page: “Peace out people. The Brad shows [sic] over.” A friend asked what he meant and Lomax replied: “It means ima lay some bodys in the ground an make sure i make it count [sic].” Detective Inspector Greg Murton said Lomax’s death was clearly a homicide but he would not comment on his injuries or if a weapon was involved. A post-mortem examination was held yesterday. One friend described him on his Facebook page as a “hearty solid young man” who will be missed.

City dog owners love labradors „„ By Bridget Rutherford WILLIAM BORRIE loves his family’s chocolate labrador Meg – and he’s not the only one. Meg is one of 109 labradors registered living in Fendalton – the most popular breed in the suburb, and about 67 per cent of the city. Mr Borrie said the family chose a labrador because a lot of friends had them, and they were “loyal and affectionate.” “She was very easy to train and easily fitted into the family lifestyle – she’s very tolerant.” Aged 13, Meg is now a retiree, but still loves slow walks at the beach and Fendalton Park. “She has since retired but was a clever duck retriever for many seasons,” Mr Borrie said. City council figures show St Albans residents love labradors the most, with 231 registered, followed by 160 in Hornby, 152 in Papanui, 149 in Belfast and Spreydon’s 148. When it comes to the eastern suburbs, staffordshire bull terriers are the most popular breed. There are 128 registered in Linwood, 118 in Wainoni, 109 in Aranui, and 108 in New

News Body cameras for animal control staff

„„ By Bridget Rutherford ANIMAL management officers will get body cameras to wear when called out to isolated areas and volatile situations. City council principal adviser of regulatory compliance Claire Le Grice said the primary reason for introducing the cameras was for health and safety. “The animal management staff do encounter aggressive and agitated people from time to time.” She said there had been two reported incidents this year. Once the necessary IT support systems were in place, staff would start using the three cameras, she said. Staff could activate the cameras if they think their safety is at risk. They will be similar to those the city’s parking wardens have been wearing since April last year to try and deter verbal abuse and assaults. The city council says the cameras encouraged more parking wardens to report incidents of abuse, threats and assaults, because the footage provided reliable evidence. New Plymouth, Dunedin and Wellington animal control officers and parking wardens also use body cameras, as do SPCA staff in Wellington.

Mandu’s mountaineering mate „„ By Sarla Donovan THERE ARE no prizes for guessing what name residents of Edith Cavell Lifecare in Sumner have given this cat – Mandu. That’s because the man holding it in the photo above is one of New Zealand’s best known mountaineers. Mandu’s name refers to Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. Ninety-year-old Ed Cotter was part of the first New Zealand expedition to the Himalayas in 1951, along with George Lowe, Earle Riddiford and Ed Hillary. The inset photo above shows him in his climbing days. His adventures were recounted in the 2016 book, Only Two for Everest, written by Lyn McKinnon. Mr Cotter has made friends with the handsome tomcat who seems to have a penchant for pensioners. Mandu has been visiting residents for the past six weeks and Mr Cotter is one of his favourites. Another is Denise Brown, who lives in a town house at the retirement village. The ginger fur-ball pops in to see her and her cat Penta.

“Cute as a bug’s ear” is how she describes him. Edith Cavell Lifecare manager Mary van der Veldt said there was already a house cat in the rest home,

which was probably enough. She wasn’t keen on adopting and feeding any old cat, but didn’t mind if Mandu visited. However, Mrs Brown wants to

Glenn Delaney

Canty coach: All red and black Glenn Delaney is three rounds into the Mitre 10 Cup as Canterbury’s new coach. Bridget Rutherford spoke to him about the nailbiting Ranfurly Shield defence against Otago, his nickname, and sharing coaching tips with his sister When did you start playing rugby? At about age four I started playing for Linwood. I’ve been in the game ever since then. I went to St Andrew’s College and played right through there, I played for the first XV, it was pretty decent. Did you play any representative rugby through school? Yes, I played through Canterbury 18s, the schoolboys South Island team, and the Canterbury Colts. Then I went overseas pretty early on to Japan at 19. I ended up staying there for threeand-a-half years. They wanted a young lock and just got in touch with me. I love the culture, the food’s brilliant and I learned to speak the language. I’m pretty rusty now. Where did you head from there? I came back and had a year in Christchurch and played club rugby in 1997 before I went over to the United Kingdom. My wife, Claire is, English. I met her in Japan, and so I went and played for Nottingham for a couple of seasons. How did you two meet? She was up there teaching English to Japanese school kids. We met at a party one night, the ex-pat community wasn’t that big there and I fortunately ran into her. Where to from Nottingham? After that I went to London Irish (Rugby Football Club),

down to the bright lights of London. I had three years playing there, which was great, and I enjoyed playing in the premiership in England. It was a big challenge. Then I went to France and had my last year playing in the top 16 there. But I got injured and had to stop playing. I smashed my ankle. It was in a line-out and came down and landed on someone’s foot. I had to have my ankle fused and it was impossible to play on it again. Was that how you came into coaching? I went back to Nottingham as a player/coach, but when I couldn’t play, the coaching side just took over really. I had started training to be a teacher before I went to Japan, so that was always part of the plan, which is similar to coaching. Then I went into working in

commercial recruitment so all of a sudden things changed. I did the Nottingham coaching part-time for a year-and-a-half, and they asked if I’d like to do it full-time. I did eight years there, which was a decent amount of time and a lot of fun. I went to London Irish, where I had played, for four years after that, and finished up there a year ago, when this job materialised. Why did you want to take up the Canterbury coaching job? Well, it’s the ultimate challenge, it’s one of those things I’d just love to do. Scott [Robertson] got the Crusaders job, and I had always kept in touch while I was overseas so I knew what was going on here. Speaking of Scott Robertson, he is well-known for his break dancing. Do you have a party trick like that? No (laughs). You’ve just got to

leave some things to the professionals, and I genuinely think he’s a professional break dancer. I could never even consider competing with him as a break dancer. Do you have any nicknames? Yeah, Glaxo. I got it when I was a kid. At the time, the company Glaxo was making baby food, and the suggestion was that this formula built massive babies, and I was a big baby. It’s stuck ever since. Pretty much everyone calls me that. Canterbury is a relatively young and inexperienced team this season. How do you make sure the young players are up to it? The kids have been coming through the structures here, and you often wonder who’s ever going to replace the guys who’ve left, but Canterbury has done that for 20 years. It’s about

making sure when those players get the opportunity to push in there, they’re ready. We have lost experienced guys this year, but young ones like Brett Cameron, Josh McKay, Caleb Makene and Braydon Ennor really showed they could step up. They showed that in the Ranfurly Shield match against Otago, even with a couple of players struck down with illness. They did. The way you get through is you have to have a good squad. So when we got to that point, everyone was ready. The best moment was Jed Brown scoring the winning try. Initially he wasn’t even named in the team, but he went on, and he turned up at the right time and scored that try. What went through your mind when he scored in the 76th minute? There’s a couple of fortuitous things. But at times Otago scored off errors from our side. I always knew we had it in us to win and we had to dig pretty deep. And it showed the resilience the team had, with some of our players ruled out. You have another shield defence tomorrow against the Southland Stags. Is there more pressure in a shield match? There’s always pressure on a shield game, any coach would be telling fibs if they say otherwise. It affects people in different ways, it’s great people feel the hope. It creates a competition within a competition and everyone wants to win the shield. It’s that powerful impact of the log of wood. What do you want to achieve this season? We’ve got to make sure we’re giving ourselves the best opportunity to win the competition. We’ve got to make small steps each week to make sure we get better, and so it allows us to keep moving forward. You’ve got to take care of the here and now, and what we’re doing today and tomorrow. •Continued on page 14

Coach all red and black •From page 13 You’re not the only one in your family who has a coaching role, with your sister Marianne DelaneyHoshek coaching the Tactix. Do you share tips? We talk a lot about coaching, I haven’t got a clue how to coach netball. She’s a really good coach and we have lot’s of good conversations on how to get the best out of our players. Who’s older? I am, if you saw the both of us, you’d say I’m older (laughs). Do you have any other siblings? We have another older sister Megan, she’s the junior club captain of Linwood Rugby Club. She’s done more of the admin side of sport. What do you do in the off-season when you’re not coaching? We go and learn about coaching to just try and get better. You’re dealing with players at the top of their game who are thirsty for knowledge. Did you play any other sports growing up? I played cricket until

rugby became my job. I still play a little social stuff, I love my cricket. I get stuck in, the old man on dodgy wickets (laughs). And I play the guitar, music has always been a big part of my life. I even took part in the Rockquest at high school at the Isaac Theatre Royal. I can’t remember the name of our band but I was the bass guitar player at the back, and we played Guns N’ Roses. We were second or third and we were happy enough with that. Tell me a bit about your kids.

I have four kids, Alex who is 16, Hannah is 14, Josh is 12 and Charlotte is nine. The boys play rugby, football and tennis, and the girls do gymnastics, netball, hockey – you name it. Hannah even wanted to be in the circus. They ski as well, so we had a good winter at Mt Hutt. If I can get to their sport I’ll go and watch. You must be pretty well-known at Linwood Rugby Club, are there any old team photos of you at the clubrooms from your playing days? There’s nothing of me, which is great. Dad [John] is a life member, I’m not. I’m from Linwood through and through. But there’s no bias, I haven’t even got a place to park the car when I turn up (laughs). Mum [Anne] and dad have been involved in the club for years. Dad’s still involved with committee stuff, it keeps him on the straight and narrow. Do you have a favourite ground? I like being on AMI. I like my little club grounds if I’m being honest, they’ve got a bit more personality.

Lifelong study offers quake insights

Completely by chance, a long-running University of Otago study into the lives of 1265 Cantabrians has become an earthquake researcher’s dream. Study director John Horwood spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about the latest findings IN THE early 1970s, paediatrics professor Fred Shannon noticed something odd: An unusually high number of sick children in Christchurch Hospital wards were from single-parent families. That led to a bigger question: How big an impact does a person’s social environment have on their health later in life? He initially looked to undertake a study of 200 children – but that would not be big enough to control all the variables in people’s lives. To do that, a massive, long-term study would be needed. In 1977, he won John Horwood funding for the study from the New Zealand Medical Research Council. He then worked to get permission from 1251 sets of parents to study babies born in Christchurch that year. This year, those babies turn 40. And again this year, for the 23rd time, they are sitting down with strangers to discuss the most intimate details of their lives. They have been asked about

their deepest fears and struggles, physical or sexual abuse they have suffered, their drug or alcohol abuse, their health, their relationships and their finances. By this time next year, the researchers hope the information they have gathered will answer big questions around how people have been affected by the earthquakes. Has experiencing the earthquakes helped or harmed people’s jobs and careers? Do people in Christchurch have worse physical health now than people living elsewhere? What makes some people “naturally resilient” – those who have dealt with huge stress or challenges, yet seem to escape the expected health and wellbeing struggles? Have people been able to get help when they need it, and who has missed out? And in the future, what impact will the earthquake stress have on people’s relationships? On their long-term finances? On when they die? Those long-term impacts of a disaster had historically been very difficult to measure, Mr Horwood said. That was partly

STILL HERE: More than six years on from the earthquakes, researchers are still discovering the toll it has taken on Cantabrians, mentally and physically.

because people tended to scatter after a disaster, moving to or away from the area, he said. But when they contacted the participants after the earthquakes, in 2012, they discovered 543 of them – at that point, just over half the participants – had experienced the earthquakes. The rest had been living somewhere else and they became a perfect control group. The first thing the researchers did was create a measure of the impact of the earthquakes on people. Firstly, the immediate impact during the earthquakes: The damage to the building the person was in, whether objects were falling down around them, and how afraid they felt at the time. Then the aftermath: The housing

repairs or insurance they dealt with, and the disruption to their work, family, community and routines. For people classed as having a high level of exposure to the earthquakes – those who were hit hardest – the initial 2012 interview found they were 1.4 times more likely to be dealing with a mental disorder than people living outside Christchurch. Over the past 40 years, the participants had helped them understand a huge amount, he said. In the first years alone, it proved smoking while pregnant or around babies left them less healthy and more prone to respiratory illnesses; found ties between learning difficulties and exposure to lead; and helped shape Government policies helping disadvantaged children. Many of the questions asked as the children became adults were deeply personal. They found about 30 per ON THE BRINK: Abandoned cent of women and six per cent homes at Redcliffs after the of men had been exposed to cliff face collapsed in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. some kind of sexual abuse as PHOTO: BRETT PHIBBS a child.

measurable impact on people’s relationships and mental health as adults. Sometimes the people involved in the study said they had never talked to anyone before about what they were facing, he said. That could be difficult at times for the interviewers, he said. “The study is designed to be non-interventive, so we go out and gather information. We would never intervene unless an individual asks for help. We are an independent observer in their life,” he said. He hoped the study would continue for as long as it could – although as the participants got older it would one day reach a point where too few were still around, he said. And Prof Shannon’s initial theory about single parents? One of the first things the study did was prove that wrong, Mr Horwood said. “To single out single parents as being the problem is utterly ridiculous. But it is indicative of other problems and difficulties those families might be experiencing.”

Cancer treatment may be linked to fitness The Star is running a series on the work of University of Otago researchers based at Christchurch Hospital ahead of a public health showcase next month. This week we feature a study aimed at improving cancer treatments BREAST CANCER patients are wearing Fitbits to record their activity in a University of Otago, Christchurch, study exploring the impact of exercise on responses to chemotherapy. The pilot study of 40 Canterbury women is being done by Pathology post-graduate student Rebekah Crake. She is doing her PhD at the campus’ Mackenzie Cancer Research Group, which includes oncologists, geneticists and laboratory scientists. Miss Crake said the Canterbury women’s physical activity will be tracked during their chemotherapy treatment. Data from the Fitbits will be compared to the women’s response to chemotherapy to see if any trends emerge. “The basic idea behind the study is that inflammation can decrease activity of the liver. Exercise can GROUND-BREAKING: Rebekah Crake is doing research using Fitbits into the impact of exercise on reduce inflammation in the liver, and cancer treatments. the liver needs to be working well to PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER metabolize chemotherapy drugs.”

PEOPLE LOVE YOUR CARING SIDE allright.org.nz/ManlyAs

Miss Crake said overseas research suggested people who were physically active had a better quality of life, were less likely to have their cancer return after treatment and were more likely to survive the disease. She began recruiting patients from the Canterbury District Health Board’s oncology service in March this year. She hopes to have results from the study by the end of 2019. “If we can show a trend in data that the women who exercised more had better response to chemotherapy, it could warrant a larger study, with more people and women doing different levels of exercise, to understand in greater detail the physical activity needed to make a difference. It’s pretty exciting to be involved in a project that could potentially help people improve their outcomes.” Miss Crake’s pilot trial includes women of normal weight and those

who are obese. Mackenzie Cancer Research Group’s Margaret Currie said there is a growing body of international evidence linking obesity with poorer outcomes for cancer patients. “Obese patients seem to fare worse in terms of both their survival rates and response to treatment.’’ For this reason, Dr Currie and her colleagues are running several laboratory and clinical studies on the interaction between fat and cancer cells to uncover the connection. •Find out more about cancer research at the University of Otago, Christchurch, at its Health Showcase on Sunday, October 1, from 1 – 5pm.

Family’s house in midst of shoddy Monday marked seven years since the first earthquake hit Canterbury. Since then, thousands of homes have been razed and tens of thousands more repaired. Or have they? Lawyers and experts believe Christchurch is sitting on a multi-billion dollar ticking time bomb. Kurt Bayer reports KEN AND Lucy Palepoi felt like they’d won Lotto. Owning their own home before they’d even turned 30. Two kids, a third on the way. As soon as they moved in in 2015, they hung a picture. “Being able to put a nail in the wall, in your own wall. That felt pretty good,” Ken says. The 1940s character home, with its stucco cladding and rounded edges, was perfect for the young family who’d just moved to Christchurch from Dunedin for work opportunities. And it was paying off. The Woolston home needed

GRIM: Lucy and Ken Palepoi with their children (from left), Liliana, 2, Leilani, 8, and Tai’moana, 4. PHOTO: KURT BAYER

some attention, but they were happy to chip away, when they could afford it. “Everything pointed to this house having really good bones,”

Lucy says. They paid above market value. Earthquake repairs were already organised – some were already done, they were told. Exterior

plasterwork cracking, minor cosmetic stuff. To be on the safe side, the Palepois got the Earthquake Commission deed of assignment.

But months went on and nobody came. Lucy, stay-athome mum, chased up EQC. Finally, an assessor arrived. It was deemed a $30,000 patch-up job. EQC passed over the money and the Palepois got plasterers to size up the job. One quoted $42,000 but wouldn’t guarantee his work until the 70-year old foundations were looked at. Cracks there were dismissed as minor by EQC assessors. Pre-1970s foundations were suddenly a major issue for Christchurch homeowners. The 2016 Valentine’s Day quake “reopened a spider’s web of cracks”, Lucy says. Windows wouldn’t shut properly. It was clear the damage was more than cosmetic. “I hounded EQC,” Lucy says. “I’d phone them and play nice. I’d phone them and cry. I’d phone them and yell.” Last December, they finally got another EQC assessment. It returned grim findings. One corner of the house is sinking. The property needs lifting up, so workers can dig 4m deep to find solid ground to build new foundations.

earthquake repair debacle The repairs will soar past the EQC repair cap of $100,000. After that, it goes to their insurance company. But the insurer’s policy in such situations is to pay the indemnity value of repairs because of the home’s wear and tear. The rest falls with the Palepois. And now, their lawyers. “We were so naive,” Lucy says. “We just thought we’d done everything right. Being vigilant by getting the deed of assignment. Nothing pointed to repairs even remotely going over cap. “Anyone buying a house in Christchurch needs to know. Even if the repairs have been signed off, if it’s a shoddy repair job, then they’re left with a massive bill or a house worth nothing.” And this is just the tip of the iceberg. After the earthquakes, Bevan Craig spent hours wandering through the cracked and twisted residential red zone. Entire eastern subdivisions were wrecked.

Many Christchurch houses built before the 1970s had rubble foundations – stone in different grades of concrete, aggregate and plaster. The rest of New Zealand

Out of a total of 26,879 domestic over-cap claims, 384 are unresolved. Insurers have paid out $20.1 billion on the staggeringly high 142,346 domestic claims and 26,248 commercial claims in Canterbury as of June 30 this year. Through his independent house insurance assessment firm

stopped using the method in the 1920s. Mr Craig became concerned the cracks seen in these foundations were being too quickly repaired by EQC. Epoxy resin or waterproof filler was used to patch them up. Often the damage was assessed as being old, pre-quakes. The problem never went away.

Underfoot Services, Mr Craig has worked with 9000 homeowners over the past six years. He estimates as many as 60,000 pre-1970s houses may have been incorrectly assessed and repaired. “The majority of people who have these homes are sitting on ticking time bombs,” he says. •Continued, pages 22 & 23

‘There are hundreds, if not thousands, Documents released in June under the Official Information Act revealed EQC accepted there were around 11,500 claims relating to botched repairs. Many were minor, others land and drainage claims. As of June 30, EQC says it was down to managing 2764 call-back repairs, as well as 1011 underfloor repairs. EQC stresses it’s important that in the wider context, it received more than 469,000 claims for the 2010 and Tim Grafton 2011 quakes. “Our policy is to ensure that all customers receive their full entitlement for any loss or damage that was directly caused by a natural disaster,” an EQC spokesman says. “This has been our approach since the Canterbury earthquakes and any homeowner who believes that their foundations may have earthquake-related damage can discuss their situation with EQC. “Many homes in Canterbury were built before 1970 and had foundation damage or structural weakness that was there before

the earthquakes. It is not uncommon for their foundations to be damaged due to causes other than an earthquake, such as cracking caused by natural drying shrinkage, weathering, as well as corrosion of reinforcing materials. “There are repair solutions available for repairing houses and foundations and each is assessed individually. Once a decision is made to undertake a repair, then the work must meet the requirements of all of the relevant

legislation, including the EQC Act.” But Andrew Hooker of Shine Lawyers believes there are “hundreds, if not thousands, of seriously botched repairs.” “When I say seriously botched, I mean repairs that were EQC patched-up cracks in foundations and a proper assessment reveals the entire foundation is stuffed, so you’re talking $300,000$500,000 repair jobs. The scale is massive. There are potentially billions of dollars at stake.”

Mr Hooker has more than 50 clients in situations similar to the Palepois. But with time – or indeed more shaking like last year’s magnitude 5.7 Valentine’s Day jolt – homeowners notice that “things aren’t quite as they should be.” “So EQC admits: ‘Yep we stuffed your repairs up, here’s $100,000, which is our limited liability under the EQC Act (Earthquake Commission Act 1993).’ And I say: ‘No, you stuffed up these people’s houses, you

need to pay the lot’,” Mr Hooker says. And that will fall back on the taxpayer. Dozens of claims from people in situations similar to the Palepois have been filed in the High Court in the last week. More will come in the following weeks. The Insurance Council of New Zealand has previously told Cantabrians the main residential private insurers would not rely on the Limitations Act before September 4, 2017 – the seven-year anniversary of the magnitude 7.1 tremor that sparked the devastating 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence. There are different interpretations of how the Act applies, and individual insurers and EQC, have taken a range of positions. ICNZ chief executive Tim Grafton says there is no need for homeowners to rush to court and incur costs to protect their legal position. “You can simply make a call to your insurer to understand its position on its Limitation Act rights in relation to your claim.” Lawyers, insurance advocates, and homeowners interviewed are worried, however, they’ll be left to foot the bill of quake-damaged homes if they don’t act now.

of seriously botched repairs’ “We’re filing proceedings in court saying that the insurer and/ or EQC have not repaired the house to policy standards, and/or that the repairs are defective . . . and to get a ruling on whether EQC has to pay the lot,” says Hooker, whose firm filed “about 50” proceedings in the past few days. In the next few months, he expects “possibly two to three times that amount.” “Time is ticking on and EQC and insurers will be able to rely on things like the Limitation Period if people aren’t careful. By then it’s too late and they can’t sue anyone. “It has been seven years, so imagine how many homes that have had botched repairs have since been sold and people moved on and changed their lives. “People in the rest of New Zealand have no idea how big the problem is.” Law firm Anthony Harper has filed two proceedings where insurance companies have refused to defer reliance on a Limitation Act defence after today. Both the claims are with the insurer, not EQC. “However, we are drafting many more proceedings, for clients who only have extensions from their insurer to October 2,

2017. A number of these claims are still with EQC and have not yet been passed to the insurer,” says Lisa Taylor, senior associate at Anthony Harper. Labour has pledged to commit to a Royal Commission of Inquiry into EQC to “get to the bottom of many issues Cantabrians have faced in recent years” – a call supported by Hooker and Bourke. Labour also promised to establish an arbitration tribunal with an inquisitorial focus as an alternative pathway for claimants, EQC and insurers to resolve disputes. ICNZ rubbished the arbitration

service proposal as a “misconceived, poorly thought through seat-of-the-pants policy that runs roughshod over natural justice”, claiming the existing system, including the legal system, does enough to resolve insurance claims. Labour’s Christchurch Central candidate Duncan Webb questioned why ICNZ would be “so defensive and negative” towards something that looks to be a way to resolve “nightmarish situations for so many people.” Former Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee has repeatedly backed the work of EQC. During an elec-

tion debate last week he provoked a chorus of boos when he labelled it a “roaring success.” Mel Bourke, of earthquake claimant advocacy group EQC Fix, bought a repaired St Albans rental property in February last year only to find the repairs were sub-standard. Grasping for solutions and trying to understand her rights, she was stunned there was no group to represent the homeowners and help with key decisions. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a surgeon or a solo mum, when you ride through a [magnitude] 7 or 6 earthquake and your home is destroyed, you know nothing about insurance and you know nothing about insurance law. “You’re emotionally devastated and you’re vulnerable. There is so much you need to know to make sure your claim is not mishandled.

“Your home is your one place where you want to feel safe from the world, and the insurance companies and the Government are taking the fight into your living room and you have no escape.” In April last year, a group of 98 homeowners won a landmark High Court settlement that confirmed EQC is obliged to repair homes to a “when new” standard. But more people are coming forward all the time. “There are so many people here, as homes change hands, as people delve into things a bit more, who are finding failed EQC repairs and they just don’t know where to start. We’re contacted with people like that every month and it’s heartbreaking,” Bourke says. “For every home that EQC has cash settled, every home they’ve touched, every home they’ve forced under the cap, then the New Zealand Government should be accountable or liable to put right. “If a volcano hits Auckland, they’re just as vulnerable as us. People don’t understand that it’s one thing to have an insurance policy, it’s completely different for an insurer to pay a claim.”

Viewpoint No place for dinosaur-style politics YOU CAN feel it on the doorsteps and at the street corner meetings. Excitement is growing about this election. I haven’t seen people so engaged with an election for a very long time. Jacinda’s name is never far from the conversation along with a twinkle in the eye and a prediction that Labour’s going to do this. Labour is putting up a clear alternative for New Zealand and people are deciding which vision and policies they think are best for our future. This is what makes Steven Joyce’s false claim about Labour’s budget this week so disappointing. Hoping to derail Monday night’s debate, Joyce came out and said Labour’s budget numbers didn’t add up and there was a hole. Turns out the only hole was the one Joyce was digging for himself. One after another, New Zealand’s leading experts came out and said this was plain wrong. The only people backing up Steven Joyce were Steven Joyce and Bill English.

I don’t buy that our Minster of Finance can’t make his way around a set of numbers. This was a political hit, not based on facts, but aimed at creating confusion with voters. I have no respect for this kind of politics. Caught in the middle of a childish chorus of “he said, she said” people inevitably reach for the political mute button. This is the kind of bickering that is causing people to turn off politics and has no place in New Zealand. The people I am talking to all over Wigram are impressed by Jacinda and Labour’s positive vision for Christchurch and New Zealand. They want to discuss health, the environment, education and housing. We’re out there trying to inspire voters, not turn them off. The dinosaur-style of politics on display from Joyce and National this week that seeks to confuse and to stop this conversation has no place in this election.

The Save PMH group fighting to protect The Princess Margaret Hospital from possible demolition has taken the battle right to the top – writing to Queen Elizabeth to ask for her support Scotty Wilson – Why? Replace it with a modern first-world facility that the people of Canterbury actually deserve. Pamela Neil – A hospital is needed there. Just get started with a (renovation) or a rebuild. Looks like another Cathedral debacle. Rebecca Hitchcock – I’ve said this to friends but with there being such a baby boom at the moment, why isn’t part of this hospital used as postnatal care? Especially with Burwood no longer having birthing or aftercare available. Being a larger space it could be set up quite nicely and mums could find a lot of support from each other as well as nurses. Just a thought. Cheryll Eddy – What have those in the building industry had to say about the structural state of the build-

ing? If it’s not worth keeping but better off rebuilding, can’t part of it be kept as a symbol of what was there? I’m all for preserving what we can of our old buildings but we do have to be practical. At the end of the day it is brick an mortar and can be replaced. Remove sentiment from the equation and look at what is going to last. Why patch-up patch-ups and spend millions on that when it would be more cost-effective long term to rebuild?

Helen Baker – PMH is a beautiful building, it would be a crime to demolish it. Going into the future, we may need it with the population growing and the main hospital with its parking woes. If PMH was earthquake strengthened it could be used for apartments with the lower ground floor a medical centre and a few shops. Owen McCaffrey – Doesn’t look much like a heritage building but would be keen to have a new owner do repairs and make it look even more heritage. Like a hotel, conference centre or Government building. Jon Mitchell – Please. It is a complete liability. Just take it down and replace it with something safe, attractive and functional. •More Viewpoint, p28

Viewpoint Nicky Wagner

Stadium needs to cater for more than rugby THERE’S NO doubt about it, Cantabrians are passionate rugby supporters, particularly when it comes to the mighty Crusaders. And for many, when thinking about our new stadium, that’s what comes to mind — Super Rugby and All Blacks test matches. But the reason this anchor project is being described as a multi-use arena is because it needs to be so much more than a rugby union ground. While the ultimate configuration is up to the city council and the community, the Government’s preferred option is a 30,000 capacity arena with a fully closed roof and retractable pitch. This type of facility will be capable of attracting a wide range of sports, entertainment and hosting events. Other sporting codes are already seeing its potential. Just last week the Manly Sea Eagles committed to playing at least two national rugby league home games in Christchurch over the next couple of years. But it gets even better, Manly chief executive Neil Bare says he

sees the club being a real partner in the city’s redevelopment and rebuild, with the relationship lasting “10-years-plus.” Manly games will be a welcome addition to our sporting calendar and will highlight the city’s willingness and enthusiasm for hosting such events. A multi-use arena is designed to be a central hub capable of bringing the community together and invigorating the wider region. The more flexible the venue is, the more opportunities we’ll have. This facility must be an asset for Christchurch, Canterbury and New Zealand. That means generating revenue, but it also means embracing innovative trends and new technologies. Internationally, there are some great examples of venues that are so much more than stadiums. These facilities can be patronised seven days a week in exciting new ways. And, if we think about it creatively, we can do something spectacular here too. •Nicky Wagner is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Leading the way with car sharing YESTERDAY, we announced a world-leading electric car sharing scheme for Christchurch, which will be under way in November. Initiated by the city council, it has brought together the public sector, private businesses and our city’s residents as well, to share in the new technologies which will become standard in the future. A few months ago, after a competitive tender, the city council selected vehicle management company, Yoogo, as our partner to develop an electric car sharing scheme and together we have turned a dream into a reality. But the partnership has delivered more than we had even dreamed. The fact that the scheme includes residents takes this scheme to the next level before it’s even off the ground. Christchurch is demonstrating strong leadership in innovation and carbon emission reduction by being the first city in New Zealand, and one of the few cities internationally, that has a 100 per cent battery electric car sharing service. When you think about this in the context of the autonomous e-shuttle being trialled at Christchurch International Airport and other initiatives that are coming our way, you can see what an important role Christchurch is

playing in trialling emerging technologies. The airport trial, for example, will assist central government write the regulatory framework for using autonomous vehicles on New Zealand roads. In terms of the electric car sharing scheme, city council researched and developed a citywide hub concept and worked with key stakeholders to make the car sharing service accessible across the city. These hubs are essential to the success of this scheme as this is where the

charging infrastructure and vehicles will be located. With city council working on setting up the battery electric off-street hub model, there was a significant amount of work required on assessing power supply availability for charging infrastructure for each potential car sharing hub in the city. I would like to thank Orion for working with city council, and now with Yoogo, on this important aspect of the scheme. I would like to give special thanks to Yoogo for coming onboard with our shared vision for an innovative 100 per cent battery electric car sharing service for Christchurch. And I would like to acknowledge Cr Vicki Buck, who chairs the Innovation and Sustainable Development Committee for her vision, passion and leadership. This is the way of the future.

News $1m prize for Golden Oldies hole-in-one TWENTY GOLFERS will have the chance to play for $1 million in a hole-in-one shootout on the final day of next year’s Golden Oldies World Golf Festival week.

Fire rage s, homes

Sparkies take award for casino lights „„ By Gabrielle Stuart AFTER MONTHS of work, it took just the flick of a switch to bring the Christchurch Casino alive. Lights hidden in the walls washed the building in colour, the entrance lit up and lights on the roulette wheel on top of the building began to spin. Last week, Aotea Electric Canterbury won the national Lighting Council NZ lighting award for the project, which it created and installed at Robbie Christchurch Venrooy Casino last year. Servicing manager Robbie Venrooy said seeing the building light up for the first time was a spectacular moment – but a nervous one too. “It was all tested beforehand, because the managers were all there watching, so it had to work,” he said. “To see it all turned on was pretty spectacular. It was amazing to see the colour change from red, to blue, to orange. It’s come alive.”

LIT UP: Aotea Electric Canterbury has won a national Lighting Council NZ award for the light show it created at Christchurch Casino.

He said it was one of the more challenging projects the Christchurch team had taken on. Movement of the building during the earthquakes meant the walls were no longer straight, so the lighting had to be custom built and fitted. Some of the lighting had to be installed by an abseiler. The plan also included a 2min light show, programmed to play every half hour, and lighting

colours which could be changed and customised for different events. To make it more difficult, it all had to be done over two months while the casino was still operating. “A lot of the work was done at night and in all weather. The boys were out working even in the rain,” Mr Venrooy said. The project was designed by Kevin Cawley Lighting, and created by Aotea Electric liaison

Tim Kennedy, supervisors Darran Hinfelaar and Steve Millar, and electricians Matt Garnett and Aaron Robbins. Mr Venrooy said LED technology was developing fast and becoming much cheaper and more accessible. As the central city was being rebuilt, he believed it could also become a city of lights. “It’s the way of the future,” he said.

Gardening Take time out to plant popular lettuce harvest the whole lettuce when it was ready. Those were the days when iceberg was all the rage. But now, as most of us know, with many of the types of lettuce you can just pick off the leaves you need at the time and leave the plant growing. Probably the hardest part about growing lettuce is deciding which type to plant. That’s why I’m a big fan of growing a couple of several varieties. Once you’ve got your lettuce seedlings look for somewhere

„„ By Henri Ham SPRING IS officially here. It’s the busiest time of the year in the garden and one plant to get in now is lettuce. It’s not surprising lettuce is a popular plant to grow at this time of year. They grow well in these conditions and, in my opinion, there’s just something about the warmer weather that makes you want to enjoy salad. It’s funny now to think that back in the day we used to

well-drained and sheltered to plant them. If you don’t have much space, try growing them in pots or even hanging baskets. The great thing about growing them in containers is you can make them easily accessible to your kitchen. When you’ve found the right spot to plant, dig a little hole and plant each seedling around 20cm apart. Try not to overcrowd your seedlings to prevent fungal diseases. Watch out for slugs.

SALAD: Pick off a leaf or two and your lettuce plant will keep growing.

Durable magnolias make a statement MAGNOLIAS AND michelia are in full flurry now, laden with delicate-looking waxy blooms that are a lot more durable than you would think. Both of these species cope easily with frost, wind and rain. These are real statement

trees and shrubs, and ideal choices to plant in areas where you want a focal point. Soil-wise they cope with just about anything but pure sand or thick clay. As long as they can anchor themselves into some heavy

ground they seem to thrive. Pruning is best done after flowering and only if required. Give them a side-dressing of general garden fertiliser this month and mulch the root zones to keep the roots cool over summer.

A Greek tragedy for the new age „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A VIOLENT Greek tragedy and dark music will be combined to create a “feast for the eyes” in a bid to get younger audiences interested in ancient culture and opera music. The Oresteia Experience, an opera with music by late Russian composer, Sergei Taneyev, is set to premiere in New Zealand for the first time on Sunday. It will be presented by Canterbury University’s school of music. The man behind getting the opera off the ground is musical director and conductor Mark Menzies. It is the second time the 49-year-old will conduct the show after first doing so in Los Angeles in 2011 with the California Institute of the Arts. “To a young audience member, it is not going to be like a normal opera of the 19th-century or even 20th-century music,” he said. The Sumner resident describes the show as provocative, dramatic and, at times, painful and frightening, with a lot of implied violence. He believes young people would be more affected by implied violence.

•Check out The Oresteia Experience on Sunday, 6.30pm, at the Christchurch Arts Centre’s Great Hall. To book tickets, visit www.artsfestival.co.nz The opera is a trilogy of Greek tragedies set in the aftermath of the invasion of Troy. It is based on the murder of Agamemnon by Clytemnestra, the murder of Clytemnestra by Orestes, the trial of Orestes, and the interference of Athena, goddess of wisdom, to stop the cycle of killing. The show will feature a choir made up of both Canterbury University students and performers from the community, as well as music from the Christchurch

Symphony Orchestra. While Menzies is now based at Canterbury University as head of performance at the school of music, his career as a chamber musician, pianist, conductor, viola and violinist has seen him perform all over the world. Some of his highlights included performing at Carnegie Hall in New York City nine times. The hall is considered one of the most prestigious venues in the world for classical music. Having grown up in Hawkes Bay before studying music at Canterbury University in the 1980s, Menzies said living in a small city helped him succeed at his music. Following his studies, he travelled to England where he lived for four years, before moving to the United States, where he became a permanent resident. But Menzies does not see returning to Christchurch as a step back. “When I was a kid, New Zealand was the place to leave if you were in the arts . . . it doesn’t have to be that way,” he said. He said the key is making the city a destination for people to stay, which he see’s as his task.

Steve had just started the excavation work for Bindi’s dream treehouse, when he passed away. But the showpiece attraction is Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors, which roars into life at noon in the Crocoseum. It begins with the free-flight birds of prey that wheel and swoop around the arena before the jaw-snapping drama of the ginormous saltwater crocodiles steal the show. It’s instructive, enlightening and utterly enthralling. Just like Steve himself, whose spirit seems to live on loudly and proudly throughout this wondrous celebration of wildlife. www.australiazoo. com.au Treat your kids to the delights of Yandina, a charming subtropical town and home to The Ginger Factory.

Hop-scotch your way around the compact region’s assortment of sights on a self-drive family roadie. The legacy of Steve Irwin palpably lives on at Australia Zoo, where his wife Terri and children, Bindi and Robert, live and work. I had the pleasure of interviewing Steve and Terri several times on Newstalk ZB before tragedy struck a decade ago. His largerthan-life TV persona wasn’t a case of playing for the cameras. In person, that exuberant charm and passion was just as infectiously electric. From humble beginnings in the 1990s, the Irwin family have worked hard to make Australia Zoo a world class conservation facility, in addition to its magnetic appeal as a tourist attraction. It’s the intimacy of the animal encounters which makes Australia Zoo such a novel wildlife experience. Like all good Aussie wildlife parks, you can hand-feed kangaroos and cuddle a koala. Then there’s the up-close experiences with red pandas, otters, wombats, giraffes and spiky echidnas. The Australia Zoo roving wildlife team also serves up spontaneous photo-posing opportunities, with a veritable menagerie of wildlife, including dingoes, bluetongue lizards, skinks, pythons, alligators, macaws and cockatoos. You can be a zoo keeper for a day and go behind-the-scenes to get up close with the animals. But the ultimate walk on the wild side would have to be the opportunity to take a cheetah or a tiger for a walk. Seriously.

Parker leads CBHS to first schools title Sights set on under-19 championship

YOUNG GUN: Tom Parker is currently competing for the under-19 title at the New Zealand age group championships after guiding CBHS to their first ever national secondary school title.

„„ By Gordon Findlater CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High School have won their maiden New Zealand secondary schools golf title on the back of a great final round from rising star Tom Parker. Burnside High School finished the tournament in second. Parker, 17, is now in the hunt for his first national under-19 title at the New Zealand age group championships, which finish tomorrow at the Hastings Golf Club. The Christchurch Golf Club player is the favourite for the three-round tournament, which was first played in 1962. Names on the New Zealand under-19 trophy include Greg Turner (1981), Michael Campbell (1987), Michael Long (1988), Adam Scott (1996) and Jason Day (2004). Earlier this year, Parker finished third at the Australian boys’ amateur tournament and was part of the New Zealand team which finished sixth at the Junior Gold World Cup in Japan in June.

CHAMPIONS: Jack Ryder, Ben Baker, Dave Bone (coach), Tom Parker and Dominic Brettkelly with their national secondary schools golf title.

He recently became a member of the New Zealand Golf highperformance squad. In the women’s national under-19 tournament, Burnside’s Amelia Garvey is among the favourites in the field, which includes Korea’s Ayean Cho, the 38th-ranked amateur in the world. The women also finish tomorrow. CBHS’s team of Tom Parker, Ben Baker, Dominic Brettkelly and Jack Ryder dominated the national secondary schools title on Monday winning by eight strokes over defending champions Burnside. Parker fired a 66 in the second and final round at the Hawkes Bay Golf Club to finish nine under (individually), three shots ahead of Baker in second. CBHS led by one shot after

the first round before the pair of Parker and Baker went bogey-free in the second round to widen the gap on the field and lead CBHS to their first national secondary schools golf title. Defending champions Burnside couldn’t get things going in the final round but finished a comfortable second ahead of Auckland’s St Kentigern College in third. Each team consisted of four players, with the best three scores after each round counting towards the school’s overall score. New Zealand secondary schools golf championship team results (top five): CBHS, 421, 1; Burnside, 429, 2; St Kentigern, 439, 3; Nelson College, 439, 4; Hamilton Boys’ High School, 446, 5.

City car park will be home to cycle sprint event THE INNOVATION Precinct car park building in Lichfield St is set to become New Zealand’s most unique sporting stadium in late November. “Two riders, eights floors and a wall of sound; its urban life meeting urban bike riders. It’s a bike event but not as you know it,” said event organiser John McKenzie The Urology Associates Car Park Cannon Ball will be eight floors of speed and excitement as cyclists will go head to head,

two at a time from the bottom to top of the eight-storey building. “Early interest has been amazing,” said McKenzie. The event will be a first for New Zealand and is part of a global series backed by Dutch based beverage company à bloc. “It’s such a cool, unique event and will be so good for the inner-city and we’re looking forward to raising the profile of men’s health as the event will

be a key Movember fundraiser as well.” Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s suicide. The event is expected to bring together graded club racers and those who just love riding their bikes and will be held on the evening of November 26.

GEARED UP: The Innovation Precinct car park building will be turned into a race track on November 26. ​

ST THOMAS Of CANTeRBuRy COlleGe yeAR 7/8 fOOTBAll 2017 AIMS GAMeS - TAuRANGA 10-15 SePTeMBeR 2017

This year is extremely special for the St Thomas of Canterbury College year 7 and 8 team. For the first time in the colleges history a team will travel to Tauranga and compete against 58 other teams from around New Zealand. The team is coached by Old Boy Jacob Allen and Head of Football Richard Washington. The team is not sure what to expect and know it will be extremely hard, pools of 10 and the top 2 go through to the next round. We are playing some intermediates who are bigger than our whole school. Most of the St Thomas’s squad, is in a representative team so have the potential to perform on the national stage. The team live and breathe football at school and always have a ball at their feet. The preparation has been mixed due to the weather on Tuesday sport were

they went undefeated in the games they played. They have dominated a Catholic school tournament scoring over 50 goals and conceding only 1 in a tournament. The Juniors have been watching the First X1 during most games and several of the boys have said they love watching and supporting, there big aim was to wear the First X1 jersey one day. Ryan Nelsen I am sure would be proud with the development of football at the college. Captain George Campbell said is so excited about heading away and being part of a great team. The team has received generous sponsorship from KSI Architectural Cladding and each boy has had to find a sponsor for the paper which we really appreciate. Jacob Allen states that football has come a long way since he was the captain of the first X1 in 2009 and said how lucky all the players are today to experience Football in New Zealand.

Pair will be first women to officiate NRL finals match NRL REFEREES Kasey Badger and Belinda Sleeman will create history this weekend when the pair become the first female officials involved in a rugby league finals match. In another move closer to having the code’s first female whistleblower, Badger and Sleeman have been selected as touch judges in the opening week of the finals series, The Sydney Morning Herald

reported. Badger has been handed the flag for tomorrow night’s Roosters v Broncos match at Allianz Stadium, Sydney, while Sleeman will run the line on Belinda Saturday night for Sleeman the sudden-death final between Manly and Penrith.

“Both Kasey and Belinda developed out of our Women In League Officiating Programme,” NRL referees boss Tony Archer said. “And they have both been progressing extremely well. They were both touch judges in this year’s representative round. Kasey officiated in the final Country-City match at Mudgee, while Belinda became the first female to officiate in a test match

when she was touch judge for the Tonga-Fiji match. “They have both refereed in the Holden Cup competition as well as the State Cup competitions, and they conKasey tinue to develop. Badger I understand the significance of this and that there is some interest in

TIPPING COMPETITION

both Kasey and Belinda because of their achievements. “But, importantly for us, they have earned their selection based solely on their performance as touch judges this season. “They are not part of a women’s programme – they are simply part of our overall emerging referees squad. Their development is on track with what we would expect from our emerging referees and officials.”

Quality vehicles at competitive pricing MERCEDES-BENZ GLA180: Impressive crossover model.

broad spread, immediate acceleration is vivid, the engine is kept lively until the tall ratios take over and moderate engine speed kicks in for the long highway haul. I like nimble sports cars, and I believe you could draw the GLA180 into that category. It feels lithe and energetic and I certainly see why it is popular. • Price – MercedesBenz GLA180, $60,900 • Dimensions – Length, 4424mm; width, 1804mm; height, 1494mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, front-wheeldrive, 1595cc, 90kW, 200Nm, seven-speed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 9.2sec • Fuel usage – 5.7l/100km

On my usual test run between the two major river gorges, the evaluation car cruised quietly and effortlessly. It has solid mid-range power for overtaking and will lunge through a highway overtake (80km/h to 120km/h) in 5.8sec. The gearbox is a direct-shift type which means instant kick-down and fast changes. Something MercedesBenz does very well is to offer the driver optional chassis and engine management protocols to suit different driving styles. Personally, I preferred the standard comfort mode, but there are several dynamic settings to enhance engine behaviour and steering feel. The GLA180 rides on sport specification Dunlop tyres which measure 235/50 x 18in. I’m a big fan of German rubber, and while they aren’t low in profile they promote solid

feel through the steering as well as direct, accurate corner turn-in. The suspension is a fully independent type, and the spring and damper rates are just firmed slightly away from the soft zone. Not that there’s a ride quality compromise, far from it, the GLA180 pampers those on board yet it has the balance so that when quick corners are presented the car stays composed and controlled. Unlike it’s 250 and AMG stablemates which get the Mercedes-Benz 4Matic system, drive in the 180 is through the front wheels only. However, you can push the latter hard into a corner and it will respond with decisive handling manners almost unrealistic for a vehicle which sits tall at 1.5m, yet it isn’t bothered by gravitational force. As much as I enjoyed my high country run in the GLA180, it must be remembered it is a practical station wagon-type vehicle and it has all of the kit to cater for the role it is most likely to face day-to-day. As you would expect from Mercedes-Benz, it has a high level of specification and, as I mentioned, nothing has been changed in terms of familiarity. The gearshift lever is still mounted right on the steering column, the electric seat adjustments are still found on the door and the central display is controlled by a dial mounted between the two front seats. The test car only had a few extra inclusions even though the list of options is extensive. In terms of value the GLA180 is a fine piece of kit for a reasonable price. All that aside, I eagerly returned the 180 because the AMG45 was waiting for me at changeover. Look for an evaluation on that wild child soon.

Mercedes GLA180 forms its own market „„ By Ross Kiddie MERCEDES-Benz’s popular GLA range has just been through a substantial generation change. Even though the midsize crossover/sport utility vehicle retains its original concept, the shape is a little more rounded and curvy, and it gets bold frontal treatment characterised by an aggressive new grille. The newcomer also gets a specification upgrade and a cosmetic tidy-up inside. Four models sit in the GLA range, there’s the entry-level 180 this evaluation focuses on at $60,900, a 220d at $67,900, a 250 4Matic at $80,000 and the car popular with the young generation and sport-minded drivers – the AMG45 at $109,700. I’m due to drive the latter soon, but in the interim the GLA180 is still an impressive hatchback/estate which, in respect to its design, is a car that really forms its own part of the market. At just under 4.5m it isn’t big, although its liftback rear exposes a healthy load space and the rear seat compartment offers comfortable room for three. At the other end sits a 1.6-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, it is rated at 90kW and 200Nm. Like most manufacturers these days, Mercedes-Benz utilise its turbocharging techniques not only as a method of boosting power outputs to healthy levels, but also as a way of moderating fuel usage. Nevertheless, in GLA180 form it is still a feisty unit, and considering it’s only moving a comparatively lightweight at around 1500kg it’s not working overly hard to achieve solid performance and economy. Mercedes-Benz claim a standstill to 100km/h time of 9.2sec, a 200km/h top speed and a combined cycle fuel usage average of 5.7-litres per 100km (50mpg). These are all acceptable figures, the latter correlates well with the 7.6l/100km (37mpg) average showing on the evaluation car’s trip computer. Drive is channelled through a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. Just by the sheer number of ratios, power flow is smooth and the GLA has been engineered for a dynamic drive, consequently the ratios reach a

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the only impression No matter how good the interior of your home looks, buyers have already judged your home before they walk through the door. You never have a second chance to make a first impression. It’s important to make people feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry ways are also important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by putting in a small bench or a vase of fresh-cut flowers.

M Is now a good time to Buy or Sell?

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show

M How is the housing

Your house needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you never know when your buyer is going to walk through the door. You have to be available whenever they want to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little inconvenient, but it will get your house sold.

market right now in my area?

M What are the steps involved in selling my house? M How do you determine how much my home is worth?

777m2. $339,500. Next door to Aidanfield Christian School. Ref: RMI10525

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part of it is that you’ll probably get 85% of your money back. It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start envisioning their own style. If you have a little money to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why one? Because when people see one high-end appliance they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates the kitchen.

M What price can I expect to get in the current market?

Marshlands: 9 Queenswood Gardens 2,000m2, rear section, $399,000, exclusive Kingsgate subdivision. Ref: RMI10524

M Does choosing the

right agent really make a difference?

Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house One of the most important things to do when selling your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your stuff – put it in storage. This includes family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes. Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.

Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth

makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your money back if you do a huge improvement project before you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles, cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets and clean the grout. Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts of potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody is a dog- or cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the impression that your house is not clean. If you’re planning an open home don’t leave your pets around. Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong real estate agent. Make sure you have an agent who is totally informed. They must constantly monitor the multiple listing service (MLS), know what properties are going on the market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find an agent who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one has many tools to get your house sold. Selling Secret #8: Light it up Maximize the light in your home. After location, good light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable. Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets Storage is something every buyer is looking for and can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and cabinets clean and tidy.
