Bid to beat bus lounge problems Call for more police presence „„ By Emily O’Connell MORE SOLUTIONS to the troublesome bus lounge in Riccarton will be thrashed out tonight. The lounge on the corner of Riccarton Rd and Division St has been plagued with youth issues since it opened in December 2015. A working party consisting of board memHelen bers, business and Broughton landowners, police, community groups and residents’ association representatives have made recommendations for the HalswellHornby-Riccarton Community Board to consider. Tonight the community board will again discuss the problem – with a call for more police presence in the area. Community board deputy chairwoman Helen Broughton said the recommendation of continued police presence would solve the problem. “We did that with the bus exchange in the city in about 2003. It’s a standard problem with bus exchanges,” she said.

Constable Aaron Thorn agreed additional police presence would help but said resourcing is the problem. “In a perfect world we would be able to supply an officer there around the clock but we just can’t,” he said.

Constable Thorn said in the past they had tasked certain units to be in the area in high peak times which did make a big difference. His preferred option would be crime prevention through environmental design. That would be the beautification of the street, set-

ting up things to help like maybe a couple extra cafes. Constable Thorn also said the crime around the Riccarton bus lounge hasn’t been so bad this winter but predicts they will see a rise as the nights get warmer. Other recommendations made

by the working party are a bylaw, extending bus lounge closing times and removing the free WiFi. Ms Broughton said she thinks most of the recommendations will be put forward for further consideration.

Don’t compromise on looks.

Tuesday September 12 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

WITH ANY luck a concrete plan will come out of tonight’s Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board meeting over the Riccarton bus lounge. It has been a magnet for trouble since it opened. As we report on page 1, a number of possible solutions will be put to community board members and other interested parties like the police. There has been a call for more police visibility but the reality is the police can’t be everywhere. Also at tonight’s meeting, the fate of silver birch trees in Rempstone Drive, Halswell, is up for decision. Residents have been trying to get rid of them for years and this is almost their final chance. But a city council staff recommendation says they shouldn’t get the chop. A tough one for the community board to make a call on. – Barry Clarke

Veterinary practice

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.

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

A career urban planner, David understands how the physical world fosters and sustains personal and community wellbeing. Relationships with our environment, and connection to the world at large, provide a sense of identity, affiliation,

Martin Frauenstein – Conservative Martin settled in Wellington New Zealand in 1996. Since 2011 he and his wife have lived in the Ilam electorate. He was a solutions architect at the CDHB for four and a half years, and has since reestablished his IT consultancy. Martin holds a strong sense of justice, and the belief that offenders should be held accountable for their actions while being rehabilitated to be

and belonging. As MP for Ilam, David will get Canterbury back onto the government’s agenda. Rebuilding critical infrastructure and services

for a 21st-century city – and beyond, investment in transport networks and clean water are essential for Cantabrians to enjoy the standard of living that all New Zealanders deserve. In central and local government roles David has been responsible for environmental policy and transport planning. He is currently an elected representative, leading climate change, technology, innovation and enterprise – the way forward to address environmental sustainability.

Raf Manji Independent It’s been my privilege to serve you as a local councillor since 2013. Much has been achieved in that time but we are still far from securing the thriving 21st-century city we envisaged back in 2011. It’s been five years since the blueprint and it’s time for a reset and new leadership. You have two votes to cast this election – one for the party you want to lead the next Government

He holds the preservation of life and strong families dear. As a pro-life advocate, supports the 40 Days for Life movement. Voting, is a cornerstone of democracy – the voice of the people. The Conservative Party principle of binding citizens-initiated referenda therefore resonates strongly with him. The Conservative principles of democracy, family and justice offer voters the chance to “hit the reset button” on the future of New Zealand.

Martin Thomas Francis – Independent My name is Martin Francis, I am 75-years-old and live in the ‘red zone’. I stand for the people affected by the earthquakes and who live every day, dealing with the Governments deception by ruling areas of Christchurch to be ‘red zones.’ The Quake Outcast group has now won five court rulings in its favour, at their own cost, the Supreme Court deeming that the red zone zoning is unlawful.

and one for the person you think can best represent Ilam and Christchurch’s interests in Parliament.

As an independent I will be free to focus on local issues, such as water quality, transport, health and housing, as well as continuing to make sure the next Government finishes the rebuild job properly. Christchurch needs a strong, independent voice in Wellington, and someone who can work with the next Government. And that’s why I’m asking you to vote for me as your electorate candidate for Ilam.

The land and those improvements that have been obtained by the Government is by deception and can now

be said to be ‘proceeds of crime’. I stand to fight to right the wrong. In the red zone, all sections and improvements insured or uninsured, to be treated as equal. Gerry Brownlee announced to the media a game to push uninsured off their land, without paying for improvements. I stand to push for repairing the red zone errors the Government has made. Doing it once, doing it right. •More candidates, pages 6, 7, 8 & 10

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

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

greater opportunities for our families 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 highlevel 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.

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.

Eugenie Sage – Green Party We need a healthy environment for people and the economy to thrive. The Green Party wants to make our ‘100% Pure NZ’ image real again. As part of a progressive new government we will clean up our rivers and protect Canterbury’s aquifers, the source of our drinking water. We will use the revenue from a new charge on nitrogen pollution to help farmers change the way they farm to have fewer cows, more forestry, fruit, vegetable and grain crops. We will invest in conservation by doubling the Department of Conservation’s baseline funding to take care of our native plants and wildlife and natural heritage. 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. ​ •More candidates, p8

Tree decision likely tonight „„ 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-HornbyRiccarton 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 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 a nuisance and a health risk. He said he thinks his wife’s allergies are caused by them. He also said during the

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 tak-

ing 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 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.

News Rotary tees up stroke donation SO FAR about 120 people will be swinging for stroke research at this year’s Rotary Club of Avonhead’s annual golf match in November. The match will include the usual festivities of a hole-in-one competition for a car and a barbecue afterwards. Rotary Club of Avonhead president John Byrne-Winty said they will donate this year’s match money to the Rose Centre for Stroke Recovery and Research. “We want to do the best we can for these people,” Mr ByrneWinty said. He said it was difficult deciding where the money should go but they wanted to choose an organisation which wouldn’t otherwise get support. Although the centre is a Canterbury University entity, it largely relies on private donations. Mr Byrne-Winty hopes to raise around $25,000 and said they will also donate next year’s golf match money to the centre. The centre’s director, MaggieLee Huckabee, was delighted. “The Rotary Club has supported us in the past and we were able to do a lot of research because of their gift, and so

this will help us continue our clinical and research work,” Prof Huckabee said. She said the money would go towards buying equipment like precision scales for further testing. She said the centre’s recent research has found a simple test can trigger a certain response to decrease pneumonia rates in stroke patients.

Prof Huckabee said the Rotary Club of Avonhead has been integral to the centre remaining open and active.

Teachers let pupils lead summit „„ By Emily O’Connell

Toby Buckner

Emma McMorran

Riccarton teens join national brass band RICCARTON HIGH School students, Emma McMorran, 18, and Toby Buckner, 16, have been accepted into the national secondary school brass band. Emma will be on the tenor horn and Toby will play the solo cornet. Toby was also offered soprano cornet based on his audition. The national brass band has not included a student on the cornet for several years due to the difficulty of playing the instrument, which is usually operated by an adult. It isn’t Toby’s first time on the national stage, though. Last term he performed in the New Zealand Secondary Schools Orchestra Festival. Emma and Toby will both travel to Napier for a week in the next school holidays with the band.

TEACHERS enjoyed seeing children become the tutors at the first ever pupil-led education summit in Hornby on Wednesday. As part of the Manaiakalani Outreach programme, 120 pupils from six schools, which are part of the Uru Manuka cluster, gathered at Hornby Primary School. The year 4 to 6 pupils from Hornby Primary, St Bernadette’s, South Hornby, Sockburn, Gilberthorpe and Yaldhurst Model schools rotated around six different workshops, each lasting 45min. The focus of the summit was on digital technology and the pupils taught each other about coding, robotics, blogging and other useful online tools. Hornby Primary School principal Simon Scott said the children loved the summit and behaved so much better when teaching one another. He said the best part was that the information came from a child’s perspective. “Often children are the best teachers. And especially with technology these days, they actually probably know more about it than the adults know about it,” he said. Mr Scott hoped to make the summit an annual occasion.

Russley School to turn out in the hundreds for Augustine „„ By Emily O’Connell HUNDREDS OF children aged between five and 13-years-old will take the stage next week as part of Russley School’s production of Augustine. The musical follows the journey of a girl trying to find her identity while being challenged by good, evil and everything in between. Travelling with her throughout the show will be more than 200 singers and dancers. The production was written and directed by Russley School teacher Chris Walker and will feature 450 pupils. “This show’s characters include gun-toting bandits, dancing leprechauns, singing senoritas and, of course, a masked hero,” said Mr Walker. He also wrote and directed the last school-wide production, Pirate Story. Russley School stages a production every three years. Said Mr Walker: “The standards we set may seem ambitious for primary-aged children but Russley kids are so enthusiastic, so dedicated, plus they’re having so much fun.” Year 8 pupil Christine Martin has a lead role as the Duchess. “She’s an intimidating character and a little mean – I’m enjoying playing the role,” Christine

The upside has been the younger students treating us kind of like stars. They run up to us in the playground and say ‘oh, you’re so good at acting’. That’s been super nice,” she said. Russley School principal Greg Lewis said it’s fantastic seeing pupils nail choreography they’ve been struggling with. Mr Lewis said the school could not attempt such a largescale production without com-

munity support. “Russley parents and staff have worked tirelessly building props and sourcing costumes. The success of the show will be in no small part down to them,” Mr Lewis said. •Augustine will be performed on September 20 and 21 at The Aurora Centre.

Tech enthusiast makes tracks for model show

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

„„ 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.

“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

Pride of Cobham Intermediate pupils on show in Disney epic

LION KING: Cobham Intermediate School pupils are busy preparing for their production of Disney’s The Lion King Junior.

„„ By Emily O’Connell COBHAM Intermediate is putting on a production of Disney’s The Lion King Junior. The show, which has a cast of 80 students, is directed by Mandy Roberts, musical directed by Philippa Chilvers and choreographed by Holly Smitheram. Year 8 students Maggie Harris and Lily Barrowcliffe both act in the production and describe it as a “heartwarming, entertaining family show which will blow you away and take you on a journey through the circle of life.” “From a student’s point of view, we personally think this has helped us break out of our shell and has given us a great

confidence boost. From the outstanding performing, to the gorgeous set and costumes, this show is something you should definitely add on to your calendar,” Maggie said. Students are taking part in all aspects of the show – from performing on stage to working in teams on make-up, set painting, sound, lighting and front-of-house. The production is being held at the school hall from September 25-28. •Tickets are $20 per adult and $15 for children under the age of 16. Tickets can be purchased from the school the website – www.cobham.school.nz

Methyl B-12 eye health

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

New hope for patients suffering from MS, strokes or spinal injuries

Special offer for SepTeMBer - if you have suffered a stroke, spinal injury or have MS, then this article is for you.

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury, and other physical and mental health issues, Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of treatment that brings fast, and often immediate results. A graduate of Beijing Medical College, Dr Lan established an acupuncture clinic in Christchurch in 1993. As she continued her research and medical practice, she discovered a reflexology network on the human body, an exciting new discovery that became the foundation of her new treatment – acupuncture without needles. Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt instrument to stimulate the reflexology points on the face or other parts of the body. When the point is stimulated by pressure, a message is sent to the repair centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan explains, the treatment increases energy, which boosts the body’s healing system. The body will heal injuries naturally, she says, but that is a slow process. In addition, many people will start to use their injured part, for example a knee or an ankle, before it is properly healed, therefore prolonging the injury and even causing chronic pain. With her powerful treatment, results are produced very quickly – even instantly. She likens it to the differences between the power of a car – natural healing, of an aeroplane – other types of natural healing, and of a rocket –

reflexology network. It brings fast results because it is a very precise treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses it to treat people of all ages with many different types of pain in all parts of the body, including arthritic pain, MS, and pain from injury, and there are no side-effects. Depression and anxiety, often the result of ongoing low energy, can also be overcome with Dr Lan’s treatment. Dr Lan’s treatment can give amazing, instant improvement for muscle weakness and numbness caused by nerve damage such as MS, stroke and spinal injury. Search You Tube for Dr Lan reflexology to see lots of instant results videos. Dr Lan has published a book, Dr Lan’s Reflexology Network, which introduces the treatment and explains how it works. Her website, www. drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes treatment videos, where people who have had the treatment speak about the fast relief it has brought them. Dr Lan is offering 10 patients of stroke, 10 patients of MS and 10 patients of spinal injury half price for their rehabb. Phone 323 4168, mobile 027 231 8388.

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
