Gideon’s big moment

Halswell tree decision likely tonight

„„ By Sophie Cornish INFLUENCES SUCH as Frank Sinatra, The Beatles and Bruno Mars have helped Bromley’s Gideon Valavala to top of the pops at Smokefreerockquest. The year 13 Shirley Boys’ High School student was judged best vocal performance at the competition; an accolade he hopes could help springboard a career in music. Gideon’s Shirley BHS band Fuzhun also came up trumps at Rockquest, winning the Pacific Beats category best song award for their original track Champion Sound. Singer/songwriter Gideon, 17, has been passionate about singing since he first began singing at his church, Assemblies of God in Bromley, as a child. “I grew up in church and every chance I had when they would sing songs, I would sing along,” he said. The band was started when music teacher Brad Bates suggested the boys work together to gain music credits for NCEA. “They came up with the idea of bringing together a band and I thought okay I’ll join and have some fun and then people really started to like our sound,” said Mr Bates. When asked about the songwriting process, Gideon said it’s sometimes a group effort but a lot of the lyrics are written by himself. •Turn to page 3

„„ By Emily O’Connell JOHN AND Gillian Gartly’s bureaucratic nightmare is set to end as they wait to hear if the 19 silver birch trees on their Halswell street will stay. The 10-year process of seeking approval to cut them down may be made at a Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board meeting tonight. But Mr Gartly isn’t hopeful the trees will be cut down as the recommendation is for the community board to decline the request to remove them. Mr Gartly described the whole situation as a “typical city council SEPTEMBER 2017 SUPE farcical, giving people the concept they have some say, when they really don’t, because the decision is already made.” Mr Gartly who has lived on Rempstone Drive for nearly two decades, said the trees cause two problems for the residents – they’re KAHULA 700 ML VODKA 1 LTR a health aSMIRNOFF nuisance and risk.

Tuesday September 12 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

DECISION TIME is almost upon us and on Saturday week the country will know if we have a National or Labour-led government. Today on pages 4,5,6,7 we publish who is standing in the electorates in the Southern View area. This election is the most unpredictable in years. Will National hold on for another term; will Labour produce a whirlwind finish and take power when four weeks ago the party was falling apart, and which parties will be the glue that allows National or Labour to reign? That’s one big boy on page 1 today with a big voice to boot. Gideon Valvala, who lives in Bromley, won at the Smokefreerockquest, and his Shirley Boys’ High School band also did very well in the Pacifica Beats section. – Barry Clarke

News Midge plan will take time to work „„ By Sophie Cornish A PLAN has been created to help solve the midge problem affecting Aranui and Bromley residents living near the wastewater treatment plant. The plan was presented at a meeting between residents, city councillors and Coastal-Burwood Community Board members. City council engineer Adam Twose proposed two David East solutions which he believes will be effective in reducing the number of midges. The first part of the plan, set to begin in October, involves methoprene spraying, which will prevent the larvae from developing into adults and breeding. Methoprene is commonly found in flea treatments for animals. It does not impact significantly on bird or water life. This solution has been used in the past. However, further scientific data is needed to accurately determine how much is required to reduce the large numbers. Another part of the plan, which is more long-term, will be the planting of native trees near

SWARM: The city council has proposed a plan to deal with the common sight of midges in Aranui and Bromley.

the edges of the oxidation ponds. The plants will attract midges and be treated with contact pesticide. Other options previously discussed were UV protection to sterilise the water and draining the ponds. They were deemed too expensive by the city council and are no longer viable. Installing UV protection was going to come with a price tag of $225 million with an annual upkeep cost of roughly $1.5 million. Mr Twose said the city

council could simply not afford to do this. Residents are still unhappy with the slow action and are facing another summer of midge-related issues. Janet Profit, of Aranui, was disappointed by the time it has taken to find a solution. “Personally, I think it’s been a waste of time, I’ve been fighting this for 10 years,” she said. Aranui resident Heather Porter said the spraying needs to start immediately.

“They said there wasn’t going to be spraying until the first couple of weeks of October, which is far too late, because they are already out there. Another couple of weeks and they will be swarming,” she said. Councillor David East is aware of the strain the lengthy process is having on residents. “Again, it’s not offering a huge amount of relief to people right here and now,” he said. Making summer as pleasant as possible for residents is what Cr East hopes to achieve. “I think my objective this year is to see if we can substantially reduce the problem from previous years,” he said. Establishing a monitoring programme will be key to figuring out the extent of the infestation. “If we can get on top of a well organised spray regime, then maybe we will curb the worst of the problem and move towards a solution that’s going to effectively deal with the issue when it arises, before it gets to epidemic proportions,” Cr East said. Both residents spoken to by Pegasus Post feel the number of midges in summer has already reached epidemic proportions.

Gideon’s big moment •From page 1 The winning song champion sound was written by Gideon in a day, right before the heats for the regional Smokefreerockquest in Canterbury. Gideon hopes to pursue with singing in the future, whether it be becoming a solo artist, progressing as a band with Fuzhun after high school or travelling around with his church band. Inspiration for his songs is gained from a variety of artists and music he listens to. “I listen to all sorts of artists, it doesn’t faze me what I listen to, it gives me a lot of ideas for what I can use for our band. It could be anything from old school music like James Brown, Queen, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra or new school people like Bruno Mars and hip-hop artists like Kendrick Lamar and J.Cole,” he said.

“Now is the moment we’ve been waiting for. It’s time. This is our opportunity to build a better, fairer future for New Zealand. To fix our healthcare, grow our economy, respect our environment and to look after our towns as much as our cities. It’s time to change things for the better. I’m ready. We’re ready.” Jacinda Ardern, Labour Leader

Ruth Dyson for Port Hills

As your local Member of Parliament, I listen to people, work hard and get things done. We need affordable housing, better mental health services and truly swimmable rivers and lakes. I want to be part of a Labour-led government that delivers these things for all New Zealanders.

EMERGENCY EYE SURGERY FOR JESS Meet “Jess” an 8 year old black and white moggy with real attitude, who recently flew down from Nelson to see Dr Steve Heap for emergency surgery on her left eye. Her primary vet at Alabama Vets, had seen her a week earlier for a painful superficial ulcer ( probably from a cat scratch injury). Jess was very hard to examine so was started on topical eye ointment and anti-inflammatory medication. Jess was otherwise well. She returned 2 days later as her owners couldn’t medicate the eye either. By this stage her left eye was producing a bloody infected discharge, had swelled up and the ulcer had grown in size. Her vet added in antibiotic tablets and more medication for inflammation, swelling and pain but the next day the ulcer looked no better. Jess needed to be sedated as the vet couldn’t examine this eye with her awake. Her eye was stained with fluorosein( as can be seen in the attached photo) and had become non healing and so given the difficulty in medicating Jess it was thought a better way to go was surgery in Christchurch with DrSteve Heap. So Jess flew to Steve and was operated on immediately to prevent the eye collapsing and impaired vision. Steve performed a lamellar keratectomy to remove the dead, soft, spongy tissue on edges of the deep stromal corneal ulcer. A conjunctival flap was sutured over the large defect to allow the perfect environment for healing, meaning a good blood supply and protection from environmental allergens. Due to the difficulty in checking the healing progress of Jess’s eye it was thought a good idea to board her at McMaster & Heap vets until Steve was happy that the ulcer was healing. As we were still unable to get near

her eye to apply drops, long acting injections were given for ease and for her comfort. Needless to say she needs a head collar worn to stop her irritating her eye, undoing all Steve’s good work. So far so good 4 days out from her surgery. She is eating up a storm and feisty again which means she’s back to her happy self. Steve has given the all clear and she flies home on Friday to her eagerly awaiting, doting parents. Steve sees at least 10 eye referrals daily and many of these patients end up needing surgery. Eye injuries can’t wait if the end result is to save the eye and Steve will often come into the clinic on his days off to see emergency cases. The take home message here is don’t wait with eye problems – get them looked at early by your vet, as two eyes are always better than one!! Dr Michele McMaster

Six years after the earthquakes, our people and our city are still floundering; that’s scandalous. The job is not finished.

Investing in the city also means investing in health. Labour will properly fund health, especially mental health. A strong city is one where people can get the help – whether that is surgery, or counselling – they need, especially our children. Let’s get this fixed. I’m proud to be part of a Labour team that has the vision to help make Christchurch the great place we know it can be for the future.

Nuk Korako – National As a born and bred Cantabrian, it’s been a real privilege to serve as a National List MP based in the Port Hills and spend the past three years connecting with communities and becoming immersed in the issues, opportunities and challenges you all face. I’ve established strong links across Christchurch and remain as passionate as ever about representing the electorate and working hard to provide a better life with greater opportunities for our fami-

lies and communities. My team and I have handled more than 500 constituent cases and inquiries and have hosted more than 100 Ministerial and MP visits to bring high-level attention to local issues. Before getting involved in politics, I owned and operated businesses in the tourism industry and was active in community leadership roles. My family have lived in the Port Hills for more than six generations, and my wife Chris and I, and our four sons, continue that legacy today.

Ruth Dyson – Labour I am an energetic and passionate person who listens, works hard and gets things done. I have a track record of advocating for my constituents and our communities and supporting people in difficult times. We have a strong economy in New Zealand but we have a social deficit. We need a government with priorities to invest in health, housing, education and the environment. Those are my priorities. We have the highest suicide rate in the country but we not seen the investment in mental health that

our residents deserve. We have seen degrading rivers and lakes – and a “wadeable” water quality target set by National. We can do better. We can have investment which makes a real difference in people’s lives – so they can have a warm, dry home, a high quality education in their local school, health services when they need them and swimmable rivers and lakes. That’s the sort of country I want to leave for our children and grandchildren.

These are all issues I have worked hard on in parliament. Giving your party vote to the Greens is a vote for a kinder, fairer society. To protect our environment and our economy and for real action on climate change, I would welcome your party vote. ​

Gary Gribben – Democrats for Social Credit The housing in our country is in a horrible state largely because the National government have been asleep at the wheel. A DSC Government would use Reserve Bank credit, low interest and suspensory loans for people starting out. We are very concerned at the way the present Government has abandoned our families. DSC would stamp out poverty to give our

children a future with real tax reforms, including replacing GST with a tiny financial transaction tax.

We will also bring in a universal basic income which will take a lot of pressure off us all, helping put food on the table and a roof over our heads, and create better opportunities. Health funding including mental health together with education (no student loans) should be needs based. Local authorities, rail and shipping, environmental matters (climate change, cleaning up rivers, vermin eradication) will be funded by our own bank.

Where to cast your vote Denis O’Rourke, New Zealand First National’s legacy is economic stagnation, poverty and a housing crisis. NZ First will increase the minimum wage over three years to at least $20/hour and provide compensation for businesses through the taxation system. We will raise benefits to a living income level and build thousands of modest homes on smaller sections, for first home buyers to purchase over 25 years without needing a deposit.

Housing NZ will be fully funded. We will fully fund health services, improve mental health provision, and revise ACC.

Tertiary education will be free (with conditions,) and we will set up workforce planning to match skills with demand, have career support services for both student and adults to find jobs. We will invest in economic development in the regions – beyond just road improvements – rebuild our neglected railways, and genuinely tackle climate change through innovation and large scale reafforestation. And we will clean up our lakes and rivers without water taxes.

Parallels between sport and working in Corrections NEW CORRECTIONS recruit Charmaine Shaw is using her skills as the manager of the South Island Scorpions rugby league team in her new career as a frontline officer. She is working at Christchurch Women’s Prison after completing her 12-week Corrections officer development pathway course. She was presented with the minister’s excellence award acknowledging the leadership, passion and professionalism she displayed throughout her training. Mrs Shaw, of Halswell, says there are parallels between the skills she has honed through her involvement with the Scorpions and the approach she takes every day working in the prison. “You have to be dedicated and loyal to the task at hand,” she says. “Just like training for rugby league, you have to be committed whether it’s in the sunshine or in the pouring rain. You learn to take the not so good days with the really good days and recognise that’s just the way life rolls sometimes. You can’t get hung up on the negatives. “It’s like losing a game where you learn from what didn’t work well, accept the loss and maybe try a different strategy next time. “In the Scorpions, we want to encourage the young players to

be good young men who will grow up to be good husbands and fathers. You want them to be positive contributors to society and get them to take all the opportunities given to them. “We look for talent and skill on the field, but the players’ attitude is their most important attribute. In a split second a person’s attitude can take them to a good place or a bad place – I’m looking for the same thing with the women in prison I work with.” Mrs Shaw says her work in

education, with youth and with people with mental health issues has helped with her understanding of her new role. Her knowledge of Te Reo Maori will also be put to great use in the prison’s programmes. “I am proud to be Maori, the statistics for Maori in prisons are not very good and I want to be a positive Maori role model to the people I work with daily,” she said. “I feel very humbled to be in a role where I can influence others

and utilise my people skills to assist and guide others to want to be better people and change their lives so that they never return to prison.” The Corrections officer development pathway is a new training package for custodial officers that blends on-the-job and classroom-based learning for Corrections officers and offender employment instructors. Each learner’s development is led and managed by their home prison and experienced prison

staff have a key role in progressing learners along the pathway. “I absolutely loved college and the experiences we had,” said Mrs Shaw. “Our facilitators were engaging, supportive and passionate in giving us the foundation tools we needed to start in our new roles on the frontline. “The camaraderie of both my Christchurch-based colleagues and also my wider training cohort was a huge driving force behind my learning,” she says. “I am loving being at Christchurch Women’s Prison. It is a great place to start my career and there are plenty of opportunities to continue learning.” Christchurch Women’s Prison director Wayne McKnight says although Mrs Shaw is new to Corrections she is already making her mark. “The skills she already learnt leading to her career change to Corrections have put her in a good place for this role. Working in a prison can be extremely challenging but also rewarding.” “Much like sports management, it is all about people, mentoring and looking for that opportunity to influence change. You need to be patient, supportive and constantly watching for that opportunity.”

Tech enthusiast makes tracks for model show „„ By Roy Sinclair AVONHEAD teenager Celyn Bennet is an unrepentant railway devotee. He best expresses his interest by creating model railway layouts. Owing to space limitations, two of his projects are set up outdoors. Both layouts are based on the popular HO scale or a ratio of 1:87. One of his layouts is ‘Boggy Creek’, which Celyn exhibited at last year’s BIG Model Train Show in Christchurch. It represents a one-time bush tramway associated with a pioneer New Zealand sawmill. He said he “liked the look of” the layout’s integrated sawmill building and rustic steam shovel. The second layout is ‘Tussock Flats’, a work in progress for this year’s show. It represents a typical 1950s New Zealand country railway station with sidings and a main line.    Celyn is involved with the Canterbury Railway Society at Ferrymead and the Mainline PHOTO: ROY SINCLAIR Steam Trust at Sockburn.

STOKED: Celyn Bennet with his Boggy Creek model train layout.

Pastor to lead new school board „„ By Emily O’Connell SOUTH WEST Baptist Church pastor Warren Read has been appointed board of trustees chairman for the new primary school which will open in Halswell. Pastor Read, Sarah Lowe (deputy chairwoman), Amanda Wall, Giarne Harrison and Rodney King make up the board for the school, which will be sited in Knights Stream Park. The school will open in January 2019. The school, which has not yet been given a name, will cater for up to 450 pupils from year 1-8. Mrs Lowe is a preparatory music director at The Cathedral Grammar School, Mrs Wall is a senior adviser at Regenerate

Christchurch, Mrs Harrison is a mother of two children with a background in education, advocacy, community service and administration and Mr King is a guidance counsellor at Oxford Area School. Mr Read said he’s “excited to be part of a great team who have been appointed to set up the new school. I look forward to meeting the community in the days to come.” Mr Read said his family built their house in the area three years ago and they love being part of the Halswell community. He said he has had significant experience serving on a school board and a number of other trusts.

Tree decision likely tonight •From page 1 “The trees are now quite mature silver birch trees, they’re about 15 to 16m tall. They’re really an unsuitable tree for a residential street,” Mr Gartly said. Mr Gartly feels as if the problem is going around in circles. “The issue is, the city council will only entertain the idea of taking the trees away if people can actually provide them with a registered, medical practitioner’s certificate that said whatever they have is a direct cause of the silver birch trees and that is a bar that is too difficult to reach,” Mr Gartly said. “The medical practitioners would always diagnosis on

Hagley Senior College

the basis of what the patient tells them and then they’ll qualify that by saying this is in accordance with what the patient said.” Mr Gartly said there are two separate issues to be considered. The first is whether the trees should be removed and the second is if they should be replaced and if so, by who? “The city council would look more favourably on the residents replacing the trees. But let’s face it, they are city council trees. We can’t go out there and cut the things down and because of their height now the city council have to issue themselves a resource consent to cut the trees down,” Mr Gartly said.

“The catalyst for modelling was from watching James May’s Toy Stories television programme, where he talked about his fascination with well-known model train brands, such as Hornby,” Celyn said. He utilises technology when designing and building rolling stock or line side structures. He will compile items on his computer and send them as a 3D model to his 3D printer. The printer then builds the solid item in fine layers of plastic. Celyn sources plans from the NZ Model Railway journal and compiles his computer model utilising AutoCAD Fusion 360 software, which is free for students. The Tussock Flats layout will be operated by Hornby elink from his PC or an app on his smart phone. •Meet Celyn and his Tussock Flats layout at the BIG Model Train Show on October 7 and 8 at Pioneer Leisure Centre, 75 Lyttelton St, Somerfield. The theme at this year’s show will be youth and technology

Methyl B-12 eye health

Research supports

Emerging research has shown as many as 50 per cent of older adults and as many as 25 per cent of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and repair and prevention of homocysteine - a serious cardiovascular risk factor that is known to cause damage and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a 34 per cent decrease risk of vision loss in a study of participants aged 40+ who supplemented with B12. Another study linked a higher risk of hearing loss in subjects in their 60s who were low in B12. The reason so many people lack B12 seems to be due to our body’s inability

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Anxiety and breathing – are they related?

When good breathing goes bad Have you experienced any of these breathing difficulty symptoms? • Disturbed sleep • Erratic heartbeats* • Feeling anxious and uptight • Upset gut/nausea • Chest pains* • Shattered confidence • Tired all the time • Achy muscles and joints • Dizzy spells* or feeling spaced out • Irritability or hypervigilance • Frequent yawning and sighing • Breathing discomfort* • Pins and needles • Feelings of ‘air hunger’ *Check with your doctor if you experience these symptoms. These questions are asked on the website www.BradCliff.com. BradCliff was started by North Island physiotherapists Dinah Bradley and Tania Cliffton Smith, who specialise in hyperventilation and anxiety treatment. Their website notes one in 10 people experience some form of breathing pattern

disorder or chronic over breathing at some time in their lives, resulting in a range of disturbing or frightening symptoms puzzling to you and your doctor. You feel unwell because of overbreathing, and overbreathing makes you feel unwell. A vicious cycle is established, which is a major stress all by itself. This is experienced currently by many Cantabrians, says Ietje

van Stolk of Physical Sense Gym & Physio. As she explains, it is normal to breathe fast and in the upper chest when we are in danger and fight or flight is needed. We know all about that here, due to the earthquakes. Normally, once the danger is gone, our breathing should restore itself within a couple of days. We would then be using the diaphragm for our normal nonstressed breathing. We have been having a hard time restoring our breathing pattern here in Canterbury because every time our body tried to achieve that, the next aftershock came rolling in. Even though the aftershocks have significantly diminished, some people’s fight or flight mode breathing has become chronic, or habitual, Ietje says. And, as she points out, using the wrong muscles for breathing means these overworked muscles cause headaches, neck

pain and jaw pain. With fast upper chest breathing, sighing and yawning, the resulting disturbance of our oxygen and carbon dioxide levels can give us the feeling we are not able to control our own body. One moment you are feeling fine, next moment your chest feels tight, you feel out of breath, your heart beats erratically and you may even experience dizziness and/or tingling. Very scary if you do not understand what is happening. No wonder this causes anxiety. Not being the boss over our own body makes us anxious, anxiety feeds the faulty breathing pattern, and so it goes on. The BradCliff physiotherapists have established a national network of practitioners that regularly train together and can help you overcome this problem. Physical Sense is part of that network.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz
