„„ 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. Western News revealed last week that a number of recommendations from a working party were to be discussed at the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton 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. The other 16 recommendations will come back to the community board for discussion in a month’s time. • Turn to page 5

Tuesday September 19 2017 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 Western News, 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

News New principal ready to lead

Fashion „„ By Emily O’Connell ST THOMAS of Canterbury College’s new principal is looking forward to his big move down the hallway. Deputy principal and head of sport, Steve Hart, will be principal starting at the beginning of next year. Mr Hart has been deputy principal for 10 years and has been with the school for 13 years. He will be taking over from the current principal Christine O’Neill – who announced her resignation earlier this year. Mr Hart said he feels really grateful to be leading the school. “It’s an amazing place here. We produce top quality young men and I feel privileged to lead them and the school,” Mr Hart said. He is looking forward to working with the staff and helping develop them as leaders. Mr Hart said his favourite part of his role as deputy principal was working with the students. “I love coming to work each day. The students are honest and enthusiastic and they always put a smile on my face,” Mr Hart said.

Your Local Views Improving ways to get people from home to work Halswell Residents’ Association secretary David Hawke writes about Halswell, recent changes and its future 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

Readers respond to the article about a proposal by Fendalton residents to make Rochdale St ‘residents only’ to stop drivers using it as a shortcut, which was declined by the city council Megan Bowie – I think I’ll make a point of driving down there now, every chance I get. The arrogance is strong with this street.

Halswell and Lincoln Rds? Addington folks I’ve spoken to are enthusiastic because it would enhance their community. Alternatively, there could be lots of little solutions. Did you know that secondary school principals will no longer take out of zone students? This will cut down the hauling that happens every school day. 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 oc-

Janine Hale – How is it a ‘shortcut’ when it is a legal public road . . . surely it’s just one of many routes to get to a destination? Jennie Moreton – Every nasty comment reflects the bias of the posters who have made judgements about the people living in Rochdale St – probably without meeting any of them. For the record, I don’t live there, I have taken the shortcut down that street in the past and I don’t think any public road should be closed to non-residents. cupancy 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 think city council will go with the light rail.

Hagley Senior College

Daniel Thompson – How would they police that? They’d have needed to ask for checkpoints at both ends of the street. Then are the enforcers there on rotating shifts 24/7 or would it be accessed via some kind of swipe card?

INFORMATION EVENING Thursday, September 21st | 5:00-7:00pm Principal’s Presentations are at 5:00 and 6:00pm

www.hagley.school.nz

Stephanie Hagerty – It’s a street not a private road. You knew that when you bought there. John Bartlett – Head out to east Christchurch and look at the state of the roads there. Shocking and they moan about a bit of traffic. Clarissa Douglas – This street and its residents have a lot of issues . . . If you don’t like it move, I’m sure there’s people out there who would love to live there and not moan. Jennie Moreton – What a lot of nasty comments. If you don’t ask, you don’t get, so why shouldn’t they try? Didn’t work but what’s the harm? Chelcie Tamaira – I just find this hilarious. Sorry. Do they want to be like a Hollywood gated community? It’s so funny.

Bus lounge problems

TRAFFIC: Rat-runners on Harakeke and Rochdale St are frustrating residents. PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS ​ Tatia Buckingham – Fendalton insanity gone awry . . . it’s a public road maintained by the city council like all the rest with people’s taxes. And, as has been already pointed out, how would they police it and who would be responsible for enforcing it? Chrissi Tukaki – If you don’t like we commoners go and build a commune out in the country. Don’t want a funeral home, don’t want cars. Spare me. Carolyn Fraser – Don’t want a funeral home built down their street and now want the road solely to themselves. At least that’s not going to happen. Pamela Neil – These people just keep trying to change the

world. I lived in Glandovey Rd when the neighbours were normal people. Hans Steinz – So why not close the street at both ends? Okay, “residents” would have to park around the corner, but it would be very quiet. Jonathan Scott – It’s a public road. Everyone has the legal right to drive on it. Helen Young – Who the hell do they think they are? We are ratepayers too and should be able to use all streets in Christchurch any time we want to. Maraea Cracknell – I’d love that to happen to my street too. But it will never happen.

• From page 1 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 difficult,” Constable Thorn said. Removing WiFi is not going to be solution to the anti-social behaviour. 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 WWE superfans meet wrestling idol „„ 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.

Said KIX Taekwondo Christchurch instructor, Jupiter Bignotea: “Basically what was taken was the gear that we use every day. We are a not-for-profit club so all our funding is in the fees of the students. When time accumulates we will be able to buy some more gear but getting all this gear will take time,” he said. The shed was broken into early last Monday morning. Forty-eight interlocking red and blue mats, seven kick shields, eight paddle target pads, 16 focus punch pads, two medicine balls, a first aid kit, one boxing punch bag, two agility ladders, two sets of elastic bands, skipping ropes, personalised screens and a novelty gong were stolen. Landlord, Tracey Buunk, said Mr Bignotea is doing such a good job with the club and it is disappointing someone would do this. She said they have three sheds and a container – which people

He has a good turnout of local people, a lot walk to the venue so this has really hit us hard,” Mrs Buunk said. Mrs Buunk said the estimated $3500 of equipment was not insured by the club. And because she didn’t know that, it wasn’t listed separately under her insurance which means if she made a claim, the excess would be $5000. “We decided to try monitor

„„ By Emily O’Connell NINETEEN silver birch trees in Halswell residents have campaigned to be cut down will not face the axe. John and Gillian Gartly along with neighbours down Rempstone Drive have been seeking approval to cut the trees down for 10 years. Last week the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board agreed with the staff recommendation to leave the trees. 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 thinks his wife’s allergies are caused by them. Community board deputy chairwoman, Helen Broughton, said: “If people come back as a group, I’m happy to open it up again. They have put a lot of effort in to getting it this far. We

can come back to this if we need to.” Community board member Debbie Mora questioned the health risks of leaving the trees on the residential street but was reassured by city council arborist Jonathan Hansen. “Someone needs to prove that the trees are the sole cause,” Mr Hansen said. Mr Hansen said they received advise from the Canterbury District Health Board and this is the best they can do given the circumstances. Mr Gartly said they will determine their next step once they receive a copy of the community board resolution.

“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.

Villa girls’ touching gesture to charities SCHOOL „„ By Emily O’Connell VILLA MARIA College Year 7 students are helping Christchurch keep its Garden City image. Isabel Vane and Bridget O’Dea have made the city a little greener, by taking part in the Year 7 and 8 ‘Take a Stand’ project. The students wrote letters to nurseries asking for particular plants which they had carefully chosen for durability, colour and scent. They then wrote notes of love and encouragement on red hearts and tucked them inside each plant. The students delivered the plants to City Mission where they were split between the women’s balcony and men’s outdoor garden. They also gave plants to Te Whare Hauora – Otautahi Women’s Refuge. Te Whare Hauora’s manager Maania said they are humbled by the donation as with any donation they receive. “What we’re most proud of is that the young women have an opportunity to raise not only their awareness but others around them about the impact of violence,” Maania said. Maania said they have seen a

She said they are planning on planting half of the plants in their safe house and the other half in their office. “We’re just very grateful and would like to acknowledge the young women and the school for the initiative,” Maania said.

St Thomas’ league talent on trial „„ By Andrew King ST THOMAS’ Seth Tauamiti and Jordan Riki have been named in the New Zealand Resident 18s team. The team will compete in a trial against Taurahere – which is made up of New Zealand-born players currently plying their trade in Australia – on Saturday in Auckland. A New Zealand 18s team will be selected from the match to take on the Australian Schoolboys later this month. The last time a New Zealand 18s fixture took place was in 2015. St Thomas’ league coach Andrew Auimatagi said both lads have a heap of potential and it is great to see it being recognised. “They thoroughly deserve it and have done really well. It is great to see two young guys able to start to make a career out of it [league],” he said. Tauamiti plays second row in league and No 8 in union, while Riki is a utility back in both codes. Both play for the St Thomas’ league team and featured heavily in the school’s first XV. Celebration Lions second row/centre Daniel Sakisi was also included in the side. He also played in the Shirley Boys’ High first XV team this year.

„„ By Andrew King ST THOMAS’ first XV prop Tommy Taualai was given the last opportunity of the season to put points on the board with a conversion attempt on Tuesday against Oamaru’s St Kevin’s College. In the dying seconds of the game, the year 13 student lined up a kick from near the lefthand touchline, as St Thomas’ supporters ramped up the volume in an attempt to will the kick over. St Thomas’ won the game 38-12, running in six tries in their final hit-out of the season, reclaiming the G. Airey Cup in the process. The two schools have been competing for the cup since

1961 in what has been a pretty even tussle. Theo Fowler, Sione Afemui, Seth Tauamiti, Elisara Vaifale, Cormack Tarrant and Patrick Elia all grabbed five-pointers in the win. St Thomas’ attack coach Paul Burton said it would appear Taualai “really enjoyed the opportunity” to try slot the conversion from the sideline. “It is not a normal thing, you know, if there was a lot riding on the points our regular kicker would have taken it,” he laughed. In case you were wondering, Taualai’s kick only just missed. It was a great effort though, said St Thomas’ deputy principal Brendan Biggs.

New branding, new products for family-run health food co

The family-owned and locally operated New Zealand Health Food Company (NZHF) has seen steady growth since its launch in 1988. The company was founded by Rob Haines as a way to introduce indigenous products and nutritious ingredients to New Zealand and the rest of the world. He began creating product lines that took advantage of New Zealand’s diverse landscape and pristine ocean waters, including two collections of natural supplements, Kiwi Natural Health and New Zealand Health Food. These were followed by KNH, another natural supplement line, along with Manuka South, which includes products that focus on the healing powers of honey. Now NZHF is introducing some new products – including a long-awaited new line of Manuka honey – and also rebranding itself to reaffirm its place

as one of the country’s most popular providers of supplements, super foods and skincare. The rebranding is designed to reflect the growth NZHF has experienced since its inception, with the company’s mission

being to continue providing a one-stop shop for health-focused, high-quality products including supplements, super foods, skincare products, sports nutrition and weight management, as well as essential oils. Many are produced using locally sourced ingredients, with the company’s exports helping to introduce the rest of the world to the health benefits offered by

The centrepiece of NZHF’s rebranding efforts is a new logo, which is an updated, more contemporary version of the company’s original lotus flower. The rebranding also includes an updated, easier to navigate website that will not only include current tools such as a chat box and links to social media, but also new features and a design that will make it easier for customers to find the right products to reach their optimum health goals. Over the three decades that NZHF has been in operation, it has remained privately owned and locally operated. Rob Haines, along with his son, two daughters and son-in-law, are all an integral part

of the business and strive to provide quality products at an affordable price, so that health and wellness are available to everyone.

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!

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.

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.
