Mega season ahead for yacht club

HELPING HAND: Ferrymead Mitre 10 Mega’s Tony Franc with the new mainsails.

„„ By Sarla Donovan THE RAIN cleared to sunny skies and warm north-east winds, perfect conditions for Christchurch Yacht Club’s season opener on Saturday afternoon. The formal launch got under way at noon with an update on recent developments at the club,

the raising of the club flag, a glass of champagne and a light lunch. Competition followed at 1pm with about 40 boats racing on the day. Six bright orange mainsail sets donated by Ferrymead Mitre 10 Mega could be spied bobbing out on the water. The sails on the club’s optimist

boats, used for learn to sail classes, were old and worn out so Mitre 10 offered to replace them, said club commodore Richard Ineson. “These new ones are nice and bright, good for training. When the boats go out, they’re easy to distinguish.” Numbers at the opening event were excellent, he said.

Riccarton bus lounge solution a work in progress „„ By Emily O’Connell SOLUTIONS TO ongoing problems at the Riccarton bus lounge will drag on for some time yet. The lounge, on the corner of Riccarton Rd and Division St, has been plagued with youth issues since it opened in December 2015. It was revealed last week that a number of recommendations from a working party were to be discussed at the Halswell-HornbyRiccarton Community Board meeting on Tuesday night – including more police presence in the area. The working party consisting of board members, business and landowners, police, community groups and residents’ association representatives have made recommendations, which the HalswellHornby-Riccarton Community Board received at its meeting last week. Three recommendations were approved by the community board and will go to the city council for further discussion. These are an additional police presence, a bylaw which would allow arrests and instant fines to be issued and continued assistance for business owners when removing graffiti. •Turn to page 5

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK WHAT AN election it’s going to be on Saturday night. The best and potentially the closest in many years, and one which will shape the country’s future for sometime. Star Media, publisher of the Southern View, will be following the election on our website www. star.kiwi and we’ll have reporters out on the street and bringing you latest updates through the afternoon and into the night. The Star on Thursday will also have an in-depth election preview. The polls clearly show people have shifted to voting for either National and Labour and this could spell doom for many smaller party politicians who have made it into Parliament on the back of MMP. Indications are voter turnout will be high and which ever party mobilises its supporters best on Saturday will win. – Barry Clarke

Lights ease congestion

Fashion „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding NEW TRAFFIC lights on Halswell Junction Rd have been given the thumbs up by Prebbleton residents who now say getting into work is quicker. The signals designed to ease the congestion at the Halswell Junction and Springs Rds roundabout were switched on last Thursday morning. Resident Karen Webb said the lights have cut down her commute by about half the time. “It is certainly an improvement until Rolleston traffic finds out about it and stops using Shands Rd and it will be back to normal,” she said. Another Prebbleton resident Graham Pye said the new traffic signals have improved traffic congestion considerably. “Funny enough there seems to be more traffic coming across Springs Rd. That seems to be holding up Halswell Junction Rd traffic . . . they might need to tweak timings on Halswell Junction Rd,” he said.

ENVIRONMENT: Soroptimists and Girl Guides planted new native shrubs in Cashmere’s Farnley Reserve following the recent floods. ​

Soroptimists join Guides Gardening to clean-up park land ARMED WITH spades, wheelbarrows and rubbish bags, Girl Guides and Soroptimists joined forces to clean up a Cashmere reserve. Seven members of Soroptimist International of Christchurch and 10 Girl Guides with their leaders carried out four hours’ “Saturday of Service” at Farnley Reserve on Centaurus Rd. The ladies cleaned up the reserve and planted new native trees and shrubs following the recent flooding of the Heathcote River. City council park ranger Karen Smith co-ordinated the clean-up and planting and supplied the tools, wheelbarrows

and rubbish bags, while the Soroptimists supplied a picnic lunch. “Everyone worked very hard and at the end of the day 60 bags of rubbish were collected along with a large pile of tree branches and debris,” Soroptimist president Yvonne Flitcroft said. She said it was very satisfying to see the end result as the area is frequently used by walkers, joggers, dog walkers and cyclists. “Residents behind the reserve were very appreciative of the effort made and one resident, Mark, assisted us with the rubbish collection for a couple of hours,” Mrs Flitcroft said.

Calder reserve open THE HISTORY of Calder Green Reserve is now on display for all to see. A new sign explaining the significance of the lower Heathcote reserve was unveiled recently. Formerly known as ‘Devils Elbow,’ Calder Green Reserve is a salt marsh and riparian area lying between Ferry and Tunnel Rds. Forest and Bird maintains the area with input from the city council and community groups. Heathcote ward city councillor Sara Templeton was at the official opening of the project. Her daughter has been

involved through her local guide group, which has planted swathes of ngaio over the past few years. She complimented Forest and Bird on the work done so far. “I’m looking forward to all the groups working together on a range of challenges including educating dog owners and the wider public about the native wildlife present in the area and how to protect it.” Mick Ingram the volunteer manager of the Calder Green Reserve project is designing habitat to suit all the wildlife of the area and has a particular

soft-spot for lizards. He’s hopeful that as people visit the reserve and learn more about the area, “they will come to love its quiet serenity as I do.” “The hope is more people will become kaitiaki (caretakers) of this stretch of river and help its wildlife thrive into the future,” Mr Ingram said. If you want to know more about this project – maybe get involved in helping yourself – phone Mick Ingram 021 816633 or check out the North Canterbury branch website www.forestandbird.org. nz/north-canterbury

New traps and bait to help Bus lounge problems pupils step up conservation

TRAPS AND bait worth about $8000 will help reduce rat, possum and stoat populations on Banks Peninsula. The Little River Trap Library and Lyttleton Primary School have been given more than 50 traps by the Department of Conservation. Conservation Minister Maggie Barry and Associate Conservation Minister Nicky Wagner presented the traps at a Predator Free 2050 event last week. Lyttelton Primary School received 15 traps, including five possum traps from the Lyttelton Port Company. The school plans to start trapping on land above the township that’s owned by LPC. Said Ms Barry: “The easyto-use traps will enable the school children to take their conservation work to the next level.” The Little River Trap Library was the first of its kind in New Zealand and lends traps for free to people wanting to protect wildlife on their properties It was given 40 traps and bait,

•From page 1 The other 16 recommendations will come back to the community board for discussion in a month’s time. Local businesses have declined to comment on the issue but community board deputy chairwoman Helen Broughton said the situation is not ideal. “It’s quite hard to pass a lot of recommendations at a board meeting. My guess is we will have a workshop on them first,” Mrs Broughton said. Community board chairman Mike Mora said he thinks the community board is doing its best. “We’re going as quick as we can. There are laws in place now if somebody breaches trespass orders the police are contacted,” Mr Mora said. No police were at the community board meeting but Constable Aaron Thorn said “the city council talks about trespassing, they seem to think we have the power to trespass anyone from anywhere but we can only trespass people from a private area.” “They seem to think we have powers in the Summary Offences Act. And there is one but the problem is we have to prove the person is about to commit an offence which can be quite dif-

The community board has taken away the word ‘removing’ and replaced it with ‘using’ in the WiFi recommendation. The amended recommendation reads – The Halswell-HornbyRiccarton Community Board request staff to report back to the board on the viability and implications of using the free WiFi from the Riccarton bus lounge. City councillor Vicki Buck said the wording needed to be changed because the city council is trying to extend WiFi connections in central city. “Installing WiFi along Riccarton Rd is a good idea. WiFi is a basic thing now. It should be on buses. I’m not in favour of removing access to the internet,” Cr Vicki Buck said.

News Yacht club has wind under its sails again

Woofing down burgers for charity

Fashion •From page 1 “It’s not an automatic effect but there are things happening. Grant Dalton and some of the Team New Zealand crew are coming down for a fundraising event next month,” Mr Ineson said. “They are supporting the Pleasant Point Yacht Club rebuild. It’s all part and parcel of promoting yachting and we hope it will have ongoing benefits.” Sailing from Moncks Bay since 1891, Christchurch Yacht Club is one of the oldest in the country. It famously produced New Zealand’s first Olympic sailing gold medallists, Peter Mander and Jack Cropp, in Melbourne in 1956, and in 1992 Lesley Egnot won a silver in Barcelona. A new $1.17 million boatshed is set to be completed by Christmas, replacing the one demolished in June, 2011.

„„ By Sophie Cornish A FITNESS manager is eating burgers to save dogs without homes. Marce ‘The Tongan Tornado’ Taulango will defend his title against five other contestants in the Lower 9th Diner’s burger eating contest on Saturday. Mr Taulango has raised money for charities in the past two annual events, in spite of the contest not being for charity. Competitors will get 5min to eat as many burgers as possible. Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue is the charity chosen by Mr Taulango this year. It provides food, shelter and re-homing for abandoned and rescued bullbreed dogs. In 2015, his charity was the Second Chance Dog Rescue, and Cure Kids in 2016, where more than $1200 was raised. Those making donations can either pledge money per burger eaten or make a contribution. For each burger Mr Taulango eats, he will raise $104. “The more I eat, the more I can help out the charity,” said Mr Taulango. Lower 9th Diner is now getting involved in the charitable act,

expect,” he said. Mr Taulango is hoping to demolish 10 burgers this year. Last year, he managed to devour eight and a half burgers and six in 2015. No preparation has been done, other than training at the gym – a strategy which has worked for Mr Taulango in the past. “I happen to be up against professional eaters and I just try to copy their techniques,” he said. The charity is close to home for Mr Taulango, who owns a bullbreed dog himself. Abbey Vanderplas, founder of Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue, started the charity in her own home and expanded it with the help of volunteers. Mr Taulango’s wife Rebecca also helps out at the centre and walks the dogs.

WWE superfans meet wrestling idol on „„ By Julia Evans ZEINAT ALEBEL almost broke down in tears when she met her WWE professional wrestling idol, Dean Ambrose. The 18-year-old Sockburn resident would describe herself as a wrestling super fan. Which was proved after she and her sister Sofiya, 14, lined up from 7am at The Hub Hornby for the chance to meet Raw tag team champion, Ambrose. “My heart is racing,” she said. Zeinat got Ambrose to sign her cellphone, which she said was now one of her favourite possessions. After the 3pm meet and greet, the teens went to WWE Live at Horncastle Arena – the only live wrestling event in the country. Zeinat said seeing WWE Live was seven years in the making. “Last time we saw them I was 11 and Sofiya was 7.” But she said they’d both been watching it on television for as long as they can remember, if not longer. “I’ve been watching since 1999 and I was born in 1999,”

„„ By Julia Evans ARTIST RUBY Williams stood on the workshop floor of ENI Engineering in Halswell’s industrial outskirts. It might not seem like a place for creating art but the 15-yearold Villa Maria College student couldn’t wipe the smile off her face. Ruby saw the sculpture she designed as part of the SCAPE Public Art season for the first time. “It’s perfect. It’s exactly what I had in mind. Absolutely perfect,” she said. The mammoth steel branch, which will be fixed to a tree in Hagley Park, was shaped by ENI engineer Paul Bacon. It’s not something he gets to do very often. Ruby picked out the “pinkypurple” shade it will be painted,

saying it represented her personality. Ruby’s mum Breda said her “budding artist” had been waiting eagerly to see the sculpture all day. She was “so, so proud” of her daughter. Ruby won the chance to see her sketches come to life after winning the senior section of the Re:ACTIVATE project. “I don’t know how to explain how it feels. It’s just really, really cool to finally see it,” Ruby said. The branch will be on display for six weeks during the public art season from October 7. It will even feature as a stop on the public walk, which takes people on a tour of all the public art in the city. The teen said seeing the branch had given her the drive to keep chasing her creative dreams.

“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

Don’t fight fire unless you’re sure to succeed Fashion „„ By Mark Thomas – specialist fire investigator I WENT to the fire on Clifton Hill, in Sumner, which recently destroyed most of a home. There were a few things there that are worth mentioning. Firstly, the occupants were in an unfamiliar house and once smoke began to restrict visibility it was fortunate that one of the group had familiarised himself with the route to the back door and was able to herd most of his family in the right direction. Secondly, and knowing human nature, understandably, the group leader tried to put the fire out. It was too advanced at this stage and all he managed was to receive very painful burns. He only evacuated the house when the smoke was too thick to breathe. He very nearly didn’t make it. I was asked later by media how the fire grew so large so quickly. There was nothing unusual about the fire growth here.

Then, there is continuing to grow the city’s cycleway network, and e-bikes may get to be really important for longer commutes. Doubling the frequency of the buses from 15 minutes to seven to eight minutes would help too, but this starts to look like a convoy. What about car sharing? Sadly, people these days often don’t know their neighbours so they are hardly likely to share a car with a person living blocks away. Applying a levy on sole occupancy cars at rush hour might encourage this sort of chumminess, but does city council have the political will? So, we are left with politically difficult alternatives. Pay for light rail, or charge single occupancy vehicles. Personally, I

WE ALL know that Halswell, towns and suburbs around Christchurch’s west will keep growing. So, we have to work out how to get people from where they live to where they work. I’ve recently done some counting at the Lincoln Rd and Whiteleigh Ave intersection in the morning rush hour. People on bicycles make up nine per cent of the traffic entering Addington village, and 11 per cent are on the bus. The rest of us are in cars, and 80 per cent have just the driver. There are two ways of approaching this problem. First, the big solution. Forget the new motorway; people I know in Rolleston are eagerly awaiting it so they can zoom into the central city, so the motorway won’t help. How about light rail (i.e. a modern-day tram) along Halswell and Lincoln Rds? Addington folks I’ve spoken to are enthusiastic because it would enhance their community. Alternatively, there could be lots of lit-

Spreydon fighter takes out national title, memorial belt „„ By Andrew King SUNNY TEKI-CLARK from Bells Boxing Gym was crowned New Zealand champion in the under-81kg elite category last week and took home The George Bush Memorial belt. The New Zealand Boxing Championships were held in Rotorua from Monday to Friday last week and attracted the best the country had to offer. Teki-Clark, who fights out of the Spreydon club, said he was pleased with his win, but said there is always room for improvement. “You can always improve, I could have kept my hands up in the third round. It’s great to be able to put on the red and black and fight for Canterbury,” he said. Woolston Boxing Club’s Hamuera Tainui received a silver medal in the under-57kg category in an all-Canterbury affair against Daniel Meehan, 14, of the Smiling Tigers Boxing Club. It was a split decision loss for Tainui​who landed some great shots, according to his coach and Canterbury Boxing Association team manager Holly Sullivan. “He has a few things to work on but great first time at nationals against a tough competitor,” she

said. Tainui​said he was pretty sore after the bout. “I left everything out there so I feel good,” he said. Sullivan said it was one of the “greenest” teams they have taken to the national championships, in spite of being awarded the Malcolm Treston Shield for the most wins at the competition. Other Canterbury fighters who won titles: Leon Gibson, 13, Waikuku

FOCUS ON HEALTH

The Tree of LIFE GO-Advanced New research on Gingko Biloba excites researchers! For decades scientists believed brain damage with age, after a stroke or injury was irreversible and brain neurons could not be repaired. In more recent times, new research has shown that neurons can grow back with the right conditions and that a special extract of Gingko Biloba (EGb-761 or TEBONIN) has been clinically found to assist in this. The implications for stroke recovery are obvious, but researchers also know many of us suffer from undetected “micro-strokes” that over a period of time slowly reduce our cognitive function. TEBONIN is prescribed worldwide as a natural supportive agent for a healthy brain and cognitive function. It supports healthy mental performance, concentration, focus, alertness, motor function and to help with many conditions including tinnitus (ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo and normal balance. TEBONIN improves

micro-circulation and helps the blood flow reach those critical places it needs to get to. It is a potent anti-oxidant and makes the red blood cells more pliable and capillary walls more flexible. TEBONIN is one of the most widely studied and researched herbal products in the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba extract manufactured via a patented multistep extraction process. Each small tablet contains a highly concentrated 50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic clinical dose without having to take a large amount of the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba products on the market, and tested by a major medical journal, only TEBONIN passed all five of the test requirements. Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements and the rest didn’t pass more than three out of five requirements. TEBONIN is the only Gingko biloba extract shown to activate all areas of the brain and is considered the gold standard in Gingko. TEBONIN has been trusted by millions of consumers worldwide for over 30 years with more than 8,000,000 tablets consumed each day. TEBONIN and further information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy in New Brighton. PH: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

Omega-PC

It is well known how important omega-3 fatty acids are to good health. It is estimated most people don’t even get a third of the recommended omega-3 fatty acids on a weekly basis. Countries with a higher amounts of omega-3 in their diet are known to have lower cardiovascular disease and, in many cases, better overall health. Recent research has shown inflammation to be a big part of disease and the ageing process.

BOOST BRAIN PERFORMANCE UP TO 30% TEBONIN is the No 1 Ginkgo Biloba extract in the World with more than 8 million tablets being consumed every day. It is also the most researched herbal extract with more than 60 controlled clinical studies & over 400 scientific studies. It has been shown to have excellent efficacy, safety & tolerability. Millions of consumers have trusted TEBONIN for over 30 years to support blood flow, capillary health, brain health & performance. Studies on TEBONIN Show: - Improved Brain Performance & Function up to 30%. This includes improvement in mental sharpness, focus, attention, concentration, understanding, memory & recall. - Reduces errors made & mental stress. - The only Ginkgo shown to increase activity in all areas of the brain.

Fish oil can help reduce inflammation by providing essential fatty acids required by the body to heal itself and maintain good health. Until now most fish oil only contained omega-3 fatty acids in triglyceride form. Fish, however, naturally contain omega-3 in triglyceride and phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the manufacturing process. GO-Advanced Omega-PC sets new standards in fish oil as it contains omega-3 attached to both triglycerides and phospholipids. Studies have shown GO-Advanced Omega-PC to be far better absorbed, leading to increased levels of vital omega-3 fatty acids in the organs through giving the potential for more health benefits. GO-Advanced Omega-PC is produced from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish using a new advanced and more natural cold extraction process that better preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. It is manufactured to high GMP standards and is molecularly distilled to remove any containments, toxins and heavy metals. Further info on this revolutionary new fish oil and its benefits is available from the Natural Health Advisers, Naturopath and Medical Herbalist at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy in New Brighton, phone 388 5757.

A child who’s ‘a little different’ Children who are just ‘a little different’ – perhaps they’re clumsy, have difficulty writing or tying shoelaces, or prone to ‘meltdowns’, and struggle to fit in. To interpret and function in the world we need to accurately process information from our environment. Some children’s nervous systems may receive, sort and use information inaccurately (sensory processing) causing them to either under or over reaction to a sensation, or actively seek or avoid a sensation. This may cause distress for the child, family and teachers, as coping with everyday experiences like noisy classrooms, the feel of fabric, or moving in a coordinated way may present huge challenges. It can influence behaviour and interfere with learning, doing everyday activities or simply fitting in. No child is the same, each have their own individual difficulties.

Therapy Professionals Therapists may be able to help improve the life of these children and those around them. Contact us at 3775280 or www.therapyprofessionals.co.nz.

USE THE RED CROSS ADVANTAGE - COMPREHENSIVE FIRST AID, ESSENTIAL FIRST AID, REVALIDATION OR TAILORED TRAINING TO SUIT yOU AT yOUR PLACE OR OURS.

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

The call to be closer to family is very strong. Be quick to view this immaculate and appealing modern 211.95m2 home, built in 2005. It has been carefully maintained to offer a relaxed lifestyle in a superb location. Situated in a quiet, noexit street, across the road from walking trails in leafy Styx Mill Reserve, a close walk to supermarket and shops, and a short drive to Northlands or the CBD. Manicured gardens and timeless brick construction offer an elegant first impression and a skylight over the entrance creates a light and bright welcome. A northwest aspect ensures the open-plan living and dining is sunny and warm, and French doors opening to decking on two sides make the most of the magical outdoor living. A breakfast bar separates a well-appointed kitchen, which boasts a double wall oven, two dish-drawers and gas cooktop. The separate lounge adds further flexibility,

and is an elegant and tranquil space with leafy views through the feature windows and a gas fire for cosy ambience. Light and inviting, the master bedroom includes an ensuite, while two more double bedrooms and an office (or 4th bedroom) share a family bathroom. A double internalaccess garage is a practical plus, while the fully fenced and landscaped gardens include irrigation and a choice of outdoor living. Beautifully presented and loaded with extras, including solar water heating (with gas boost) and attic storage in the ceiling, it’s clear that this is a much-loved home, but the vendor is determined to move closer to family and has committed to selling.
