„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A GRIEVING dad is seeking answers after his son was discharged from hospital – only to take his own life 18 days later. Geoff Booth yesterday filed a complaint with the Canterbury District Health Board after his distressed son Liam was taken to Christchurch Hospital by police in September and then later discharged. Liam had threatened to harm himself at the Halswell Quarry Park. Mr Booth is questioning why Liam was discharged from hospital before he could get there to pick him up. On October 2, Liam Harrison Booth’s body was found in Beckenham Park, about 100m from his flat. His death has been referred to the Coroner. On pages 4-5 today Mr Booth shares his story in the hope it will raise awareness and help save others. An angry Mr Booth criticised Liam’s mental health care at his funeral on Friday. The video has been posted on Facebook, which has had more than 10,000 views. •Turn to page 7

Thursday October 12 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THAT’S ONE pretty special house on the front page today. A cool $6 million-plus worth and it sits in the most expensive street in Christchurch, real estate-wise. The house is owned by businessman Graham Beirne and his wife. He was one of the original importers of Japanese cars . . . looks like they’ve done very well for Mr Beirne. A not-so-happy story on page 1, 4 and 5 – a grieving dad who is questioning whether his son got the right care before taking his own life. There’s a great book on the market about one of New Zealand’s most notorious murder cases (see pages 28,29,30). It’s written by John Rosanowski, a top bloke who was one of my teachers at high school. But his talents were not only literary, he was a good sportsman too. He was a top goal-kicker during his days on the rugby league field – Linwood Keas from memory. – Barry Clarke

This week in history saw the opening of the redesigned portion of Victoria Square on October 8, 1989. On October 9, 1962, the Town Hall site was chosen in Kilmore St. On the same day in 1971, Councillor Neville Pickering ousted sitting first-term Mayor Ron Guthrey after an intense and controversial election campaign over the issues of the Hagley Park road and the siting of the pro-

posed Commonwealth Games facilities. This resulted in the scrapping of the park road, the abandonment of the uncompleted Centennial Pool alterations and the building of new athletic and swimming facilities at Queen Elizabeth II Park. On October 10, 1953, the last great air race from London to Christchurch was won by an RAF Canberra bomber (left).

On October 12 to 14, 1981, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the city. On October 12, 1939, battery point guns in Lyttelton Harbour accidentally sunk the Dolphin, a fishing boat, killing one man.

City’s most expensive street

•From page 1 Two lanes in Northwood were second and third highest-priced – Mayfly Lane, where the median value was $2.6 million, and East Stream Lane, $2.2 million. Before the earthquakes, streets around Sumner and Redcliffs often featured on most-expensive lists. Searidge Lane in Sumner was Christchurch’s most ex-

pensive street in 2012, when the median value there was $1.9m. But they were significantly less expensive than the highestpriced streets in Auckland and Queenstown. Auckland’s Cremorne St in Herne Bay had a median value of $6.5 million, while Queenstown’s Hunter Rd had a median value of $4.6 million.

In Brief COUNCIL DRIVERS FINED Thirty-two speeding fines have been issued to city council staff driving the organisation’s vehicles around Christchurch in the past year. The figures, released to The Star under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act, show the tickets were issued for drivers going an average of 5km/h over the speed limit. It could not say exactly where, but none were in the central city. The drivers pay the fines. ‘CLEAN’ AUDIT The city council has received its first “clean” audit since the earthquakes from Audit New Zealand and the Auditor-General for its 2017 Annual Report. Since the quakes, the city council had received modified audit reports due to issues determining the impact of earthquake damage on the value of its assets. But with the city council resolving the last of these issues, a clean report has been given, putting it back on the same footing as other councils.

FAST FACTS: Christchurch’s most expensive streets: •Heathfield Ave, Fendalton – $2.717m •Mayfly Lane, Northwood – $2.639m •East Stream Lane, Northwood – $2.273m •Taunton Green, Papanui – $1.914m •Bradnor Rd, Fendalton – $1.868m

Man who allegedly hurt duck in court today „„ By Emily O’Connell THE MAN who allegedly bashed a duck with a large piece of wood in Halswell Domain will appear in the district court today. And The Star can reveal he was a member of the Halswell Miniature Trains Club, who has now resigned. The club is located at the domain. Club vice president Alex Cowdell said the man was immediately suspended after the incident.

Animal and Bird Hospital manager Nicola Broad said the duck, named Daisy, is doing a lot better but it will be a long recovery for her. “Unfortunately, concussion can take anywhere up to six weeks to subside. I figure we will have her in care for at least another week or two. We will continue to monitor her recovery, and get her released back to her usual possie as soon as possible,” she said. Daisy had a bit of “hiss”

Motorists will have to type in their licence plate number and pay, without having to put the ticket on the dashboard of their vehicles afterwards. Additional parking wardens will be out helping people with the new system.

NO SEX WORKER BYLAW The city council’s regulatory performance committee has recommended against pursuing a bylaw to regulate street-based sex work in the residential part of Manchester St. Instead, the committee yesterday recommended groups involved, work with sex workers encouraging them to move from the residential part of the street.

The unpredictability of mental After his son took his own life, Geoff Booth wants other families dealing with suicide to get the help they need. He spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding GEOFF BOOTH did not feel there was any reason to worry the last time he saw his son Liam. He had driven out to Sumner Beach to meet up with the 21-year-old where they spent the afternoon parked up next to the ocean catching up and talking about his plans for the next day. That was Sunday, October 1. Eighteen days earlier, Liam had threatened to take his life at Halswell Quarry Park. Police were called and he was taken to Christchurch Hospital for assessment before he was discharged – prematurely Mr Booth now believes. Mr Booth had been worried; Liam had been expressing suicidal thoughts for three months. But when he arrived at Sumner he was put at ease by the mood Liam was in. They talked, and talked. Mr Booth gave Liam $20 to pay for petrol and Liam said he was planning to buy some ham for lunch the next day. They gave GRIEF: Geoff Booth holding a photo of his son.

health and its tragic outcome “Suicide is a plague on our young in New Zealand. The plague arrived in our family this week. Whose family is it next,” he said. On September 13, Mr Booth received a call from Liam at Halswell Quarry Park, who said life was too much. He called the police who attended and took him to Christchurch Hospital. “Cops rang me and said they have got him, he is safe and in the back of the car and we are going to take him to the hospital. That was fine and I felt good . . . he is going to be assessed and possibly admitted,” Mr Booth said. Mr Booth said at about 11pm he got a phone call from the hospital to say Liam had been assessed and they did not think he will be a threat to himself and would be discharged. “I said: ‘You can’t send him home’,” Mr Booth said. He told the hospital if Liam was to be discharged, he would come pick him up. By the time he arrived at the hospital Liam had already left. Mr Booth tried to call his son but he didn’t answer. At 6am he finally did.

CHERISHED: Liam Booth, 21, was described as a sensitive soul who would do anything for his friends.

In the weeks leading up to his death, Liam received counselling at the City Mission where he had previously been referred to as a result of being part of the crisis resolution team at Hillmorton Hospital. Liam received drug and alcohol counselling at the City Mission. Mr Booth also took

Liam to a medical centre in a bid to take steps to get him on a sickness benefit to take work pressure off him. But it was a long process and nothing had happened before he died. He said it is a long process to get an appointment at Work and Income.

“They provided him a form, form is done online. But it takes quite a bit of time to get in front of someone at Work and Income. We were still in the throws of getting him an appointment . . . at the time of his death. “We never got him on the sickness benefit. That might have been a benefit to him that he didn’t have to worry about work and concentrate on getting better,” Mr Booth said. Mr Booth said he was angry. There had been many opportunities for the experts to come up with a solution. About five months ago, Mr Booth was first made aware his son was battling mental health issues and Liam was put on antidepressants. Mr Booth wasn’t certain what

had triggered Liam, but said when he had an episode either drugs or alcohol were involved. “That is when he first went on some medication. That had some stigma, he didn’t want to take pills. It was almost admitting his brain wasn’t working right and that was hard,” Mr Booth said. Liam had been to Hillmorton Hospital as an outpatient and had been counselled about 20-30 times both on site and on the phone. “I took him early one morning. We had to sit outside until they open because they don’t open until 8.30am,” Mr Booth said. Mr Booth said while Liam did not tell him a lot about the counselling sessions, he did say after the second City Mission session he was told he was clinically depressed. Liam lived with three flatmates in Beckenham. But he didn’t want other people to know he had issues. About three months ago Mr Booth first became aware his son was potentially suicidal. “He didn’t attempt anything but he was sort of talking about this life wasn’t for him, but you don’t think it is going to happen,” Mr Booth said.

Container mall gets green light „„ By Bridget Rutherford A CONTAINER mall similar to Re:Start has just got the goahead for an empty central city site. The city council has granted resource consent to Sam Hung Hong Ltd to install five shipping containers on the corner of Colombo and Tuam Sts, which will house hospitality and retail tenants. The site is currently used by Wilson Parking. The containers would remain on the site for six years, until a future use for the land is determined. All the containers will face a large courtyard in the middle of the site. There would also be seating available on the roofs of the containers, which would be connected by a gantry walkway. The site is across the road from the new Hoyts development, and Bus Interchange. The development’s resource consent application said it would have a similar “look and feel” to Re:Start, which opened in October 2011. Re:Start received international recognition for the innovative

Earthquake Engineering. She said she wanted to inspire scientists and engineers to fight to make buildings safer and earthquake standards stricter. Many were doing great technical work around earthquake safety, but failing to communicate that to the public and to politicians, she said. “It’s all well and good to make spectacular science, but if you can’t communicate it, what’s the point,” she said. “Science is only half the job. It’s about taking that and using it to make a change in our little

corner of the world, and communicating it in a way that makes Parliament sit up and listen,” she said. She said many scientists shied away from engaging in politics, but she believed it was essential. “If the ultimate goal is a safer society, there’s a lot of politics in that,” she said. “A lot of science and engineering types wrinkle their noses at politics and say ‘oh, it’s so odious’. I say ‘yes, it’s all a game, and everyone lies, and there’s a lot of hypocrisy in it, that’s true. But you still have to play the game’.”

Dr Brower said the journal’s acceptance and revision process took more than a year and it would be a huge honour to finally see it in print. Telling her story and proving that “the little guy can make a change” had been very satisfying, she said. Although she still kept an eye on earthquake strengthening legislation, her main focus had returned to the environmental research she was focused on before the earthquakes, she said. Most of her current work was around things like management of freshwater and conservation land in Canterbury, she said. “If something has the potential to make the world a better place, I think it’s my job to share it,” she said. •Dr Brower’s story in her own words can be found online at www.star.kiwi where the full pre-print text of her paper has been published. The final paper is set to be published in the November edition of international earthquake engineering journal, Earthquake Spectra, which will be available online at www.earthquakespectra.org

Coach cracks whip with students Players must attend class or no basketball

„„ By Andrew King “I WANT to do it my way, all the way, or not at all.” That’s the message Canterbury Rams co-captain Marques Whippy delivered to players when he first arrived to coach the Hillmorton High basketball team in April this year. A big part of his message was that in order to stay in the team, you had to attend class. “I got the boys to sign contracts, which say they have to go to class. If they miss class or are late three times, then they don’t play,” Whippy said. That appears have paid dividends both on the court and off it. The team has just finished their season after finishing second at nationals and winning their local competition and South Islands. Last year Hillmorton finished last at nationals, second in the local competition and third in the South Islands. Joshua Nickel has brought into

the Whippy philosophy and said while the school work may not get easier, the motivation to turn up and give it his best shot has come from the programme. “If we don’t turn up, we can’t play. So that makes us turn up and go hard at our school work,” he said. Joshua, 18, is in his last year at Hillmorton and aims to head to university next year and study science as well as follow in Whippy’s footsteps and play for the Rams.

Hillmorton sports co-ordinator Andrea Kendrew said it is hard to determine what effect the rules are having on the students in the classroom, but most of them will pass this year. “One has really pulled his socks up and is attending every class and that will affect his school work,” she said. She said the students look up to Whippy as he has been in a similar position himself. “In a way, he relates to a lot of the boys, he might see himself

in them. It like ‘I was there once and I can help these guys out’,” she said. Whippy brought an American-styled culture to the team, something he learned in his time at Woods Cross High School, Utah, and Brigham Young University–Hawaii. “I played basketball in high school in the States and it is all about grades as well as the sport. I want to bring that culture here.” One of the team’s losses came

– Marques Whippy

after a couple of players were late to class three times which meant they had to sit out a game, but Whippy had no problem enforcing his rules. “They have not missed class since,” he laughed. To roll out a similar code through other sports in the school would require the coaches coming on board and driving it, much like Whippy does, Ihaia said. “We tried with the girls [basketball] team but it didn’t work out. I would love to get it through all sports in the school,” she said. Canterbury Basketball Association community manager James Lissaman said having Whippy coach at Hillmorton was fantastic for the players. “He is a Polynesian role model and being able to work with kids similar to him is great. The mana he brings on and off the court really resonates with them,” he said.

Bathrooms With Style Heirloom available from Edward Gibbon

Heirloom Mini and Vessel Basins These ultra modern basins are elegantly formed to provide a beautiful design statement. Heirloom's Mini Basins are the ideal answer where space is limited in bathrooms, separate toilets or guest powder rooms. While the new Heirloom Vessel basins add a sophisticated look to compliment any bathroom.

Strata Towel Warmers Strata Towel Warmers for design freedom A ladder towel warmer is a wonderful sculptural focus for the bathroom but Strata towel rails take bathroom design a step further. Being free of frame, individual Strata Towel Rails draw attention to the actual towel rails which will look as if they are floating on the wall and give a more horizontal and linear relationship with the rest of the bathroom. They therefore look more integrated into the overall bathroom design.

Sick Maddie back in hospital „„ By Gabrielle Stuart MADDIE COLLINS, who has been fundraising for a kidney transplant in the United States, is back in hospital fighting a potentially life-threatening infection. The West Melton teenager was taken to hospital on Sunday with peritonitis – an infection of the lining around her abdomen. She has had the condition before, when she was fiveyears-old, and ended up on life support because of it. Maddie’s mother, Sarah Manson Collins, said she was on heavy medication and the doctors believed it was working, but she was likely to stay in Christchurch Hospital for the rest of the week. Treatment for the infection was complicated by the medication and dialysis treatment Maddie needs for kidney failure. Mrs Manson Collins said Maddie had been in a lot of pain, but was staying positive. “Today she said mum, I’m ready to go riding again. But that was after another big dose of medication,” she said. She said the infection made

the need for a transplant more urgent. “She just needs a kidney. We’re just trying to sit tight here and hope it happens,” she said. This week marks five years since Maddie’s father, Adam Collins, donated one of his kidneys to her. Five hours after the operation, her body rejected it. Her family have been fundraising to get Maddie a kidney transplant in the United States, where the treatment offered would make it less likely a donated kidney would be rejected. But the treatment would cost more than $700,000, and is also conditional on Maddie’s brother, Tomas, donating one of his kidneys to an American patient as part of a “paired exchange” programme. Mrs Manson Collins said she hoped Maddie’s story would inspire people to become organ donors. FIGHTER: Maddie Collins, 13, has been in hospital since Sunday fighting a potentially life-threatening infection, which is complicated by her kidney failure treatment.

Medicinal cannabis trial

„„ By Bridget Rutherford LINCOLN University has been approached to help carry out a medicinal cannabis trial. A university spokeswoman said a private New Zealand company asked Lincoln to assist with the technical aspects of a medicinal cannabis project. She said the university needed to gain the appropriate licenses before commencing the commercial contract. “Due to the confidential nature of the contractual arrangements, we are unable to comment further at this stage.” After widespread campaigning to make cannabis-based medication available in New Zealand, former Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne delegated approval for medical marijuana use applications to the Ministry of Health in February. In June, he announced restrictions would be removed on pain relief cannabidiol so doctors could prescribe it without Ministry approval. Ministry Medsafe group manager Chris James confirmed licences had been issued to Lincoln for the trial. It had also provided advice about the legal and regulatory requirements, he said.

HISTORY: Archaeologists inspect one of the hangi pits that was discovered during work on the Northern Corridor near Kā Pūtahi Creek. ​

Motorway construction unearths hangi pits „„ By Bridget Rutherford CONTRACTORS working on the Northern Corridor have unearthed 10 hangi pits – one of which was almost 2m wide. The discovery was made when a Taylors Contracting worker noticed darker patches of soil while digging near Kā Pūtahi Creek. He notified archaeologist Elsa Koenig, who was on site and started the excavation process. They found charcoal, firecracked rocks, bone and shell fragments in the pits, otherwise known as ovens.

Project archaeologist Nick Cable said this was the first discovery of hangi pits in the area. “The largest was two metres across, which is huge.” More work was needed to determine exactly why they were there, how old they were, and what they were used for, he said. But due to their size, the hangi pits could have been umu ti, a large oven used to cook cabbage tree roots to extract carbohydrates and sugar, he said. That would then be mixed with water to create a porridgelike food.

Mr Cable said they were “quietly confident” there would be a discovery, because the work was happening near water, which was usually an indicator. He said up to five archaeologists had been working on the site since the pits were first discovered on September 26. Because the Northern Corridor work would destroy the find, archaeologists were doing all they could to take as many samples and information as possible, he said. “The really interesting thing for us is putting something in

the Belfast area.” A New Zealand Transport Agency spokeswoman said when the hangi pits were discovered, construction work was stopped, and work was moved to another part of the project. The archaeologist investigations would not cause any delay in the work programme, she said. NZTA, the city council, Fulton Hogan, Aurecon and Jacobs are building the Northern Corridor, which will extend the Northern Motorway through QE II Drive and Cranford St.

News Dalziel to meet top cop over bus lounge issues „„ By Emily O’Connell MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel will meet with police district commander John Price to discuss whether more presence would help solve the ongoing issues at the Riccarton bus lounge. 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 members, business and landowners, police, community groups and residents’ association representatives have made 19 recommendations to help solve the issues. These include extending bus lounge closing times, playing music in Division St which would attract more people to the area and changing the current bus lounge Wi-Fi policies. Councillors decided to get Ms Dalziel to meet with Superintendent Price to request additional police presence be allocated during peak times as recommended. They also decided to lobby

central Government to request a review of the Local Government Act bylaw provisions that would allow arrests to be made or instant fines to be issued for breaching a bylaw. Ms Dalziel said she would like to meet with Superintendent Price in early November if its possible. The other 17 recommendations are still being investigated by staff and reports will be presented to the Halswell-Hornby Riccarton Community Board and then to the city council. Community board chairman Mike Mora said he hopes the recommendations will be in place by the end of November. “. . . hopefully, but I’m not putting time lines on it as I haven’t got control over the workload of staff,” he said. •Mayor’s column, p22

Heritage Week event across the city Cycle events are being held across the world this year to mark the anniversary of German aristocrat Karl von Drais’ 1817 invention of the bicycle – which was originally called the ‘dandy horse’. City council heritage team leader Brendan Smyth said it would mark Christchurch’s past and the “renaissance of cycling” expected as the city council’s 13 major cycle routes are progressively opened at a cost of $156 million. The 150th anniversary of the Lyttelton Railway Tunnel opening will also be celebrated as part of Heritage Week, with an exhibition at the Lyttelton Library. Mr Smyth said he hoped the events would encourage people to get into the city. “People think heritage means looking back, but actually acknowledging our heritage is really positive and a really important part of rebuilding our city for the future,” he said. •Biketober, page 36

Red zone trail comes to life on Sunday

„„ By Bridget Rutherford UP TO 5000 people are expected to meet in the middle on Sunday to celebrate the partial opening of the residential red zone’s first major project. The Meet in the Middle event will be held at Kerrs Reach to mark the partial completion of Te Ara Otakaro, a city to sea transitional trail running alongside the Avon River. When complete, the 12km long trail will run from Barbadoes St to Pages Rd, and will be accessible for cyclists, walkers, joggers and wheelchairs. Organised by the Avon-Otakaro Network, Meet in the Middle will see groups meet at either the New Brighton Clock Tower or on the northern bank of the Avon, opposite the Margaret Mahy Family Playground, at 10.30am. Both groups will then walk or cycle to meet at Kerrs Reach at noon for the free WELL KNOWN: Singer Hollie Smith will headline Meet in the Middle on Sunday.

event, which will have live music, food, information stalls and a regatta. New Zealand soul singer Hollie Smith will headline the live music. Folk band The Eastern’s Adam McGrath will also play. Canterbury and Union Rowing Clubs, Arawa Canoe Club, Aoraki Dragons and Te Waka Pounamu crews will all compete in the regatta. Avon-Otakaro Network spokesman Evan Smith said the partial opening was a milestone. “It’s important to get people engaged again in the red zone around the river. For a long time it’s been a scar in the landscape in the east, but it’s time now for that to heal.” He said the trail still needed to be completed from the Avondale Bridge to New Brighton, although many people had already been using the other sections. The date was chosen because it coincided with The Breeze Walking Festival, Biketober, Mental Health Week, school holidays and heritage and conservation weeks. Mayor Lianne Dalziel and Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner will lead the group from the central city, while Christchurch East

MP Poto Williams and network chairman Teoti Jardine will lead those coming from New Brighton. The work to construct the trail is coinciding with the city council’s upgrade of temporary stopbanks next to the river. City Care has done pro bono work on it, alongside a $50,000 grant from the Ministry of Social Development. It is not yet known how long the trail will remain, because the future location of stopbanks has not been decided. •Meet in the Middle will be held on Sunday, from 11am-3pm, with access from Hockey Lane. Those walking will meet at 10.30am. For more information, visit www. middle.nz

WELL USED: Walkers have already been using the Te Ara Otakaro trail along the Avonside section. CONSTRUCTION: When complete, the 12km long trail will run from Barbadoes St to Pages Rd, and will be accessible for cyclists, walkers, joggers and wheelchairs.

Disability car park poachers pay the price „„ By Gabrielle Stuart PEOPLE illegally parking in disability spaces beware: A new app launched last week has already been used to report six abuses of car parks in Christchurch. The app – Access Aware – can be used by anyone to report people parked in disability

spaces without a permit. It instantly sends a notification to the city council’s parking enforcement team. Of the six cases reported by last Friday, five were disability parks on private property, and the owners of the property were notified. One was in a city council park, but the vehicle was gone before

the city council enforcement officer arrived. The app has also been used to map out more than 40 disability parks around the city to make them easier to find. The app was created in a collaboration between CCS Disability Action and the city council, along with Wellington software company

ThunderMaps. They are also working together to trial new bluetooth sensors for mobility spaces, which would automatically detect if a vehicle has a current mobility permit. CCS Disability Action chief executive David Matthews said abuse of disability parks was still “unacceptably high”, in spite of fines and attempts to

build awareness. “Using a mobility parking space without a permit, even for just a minute can block a disabled person’s opportunity to live life freely,” he said. The free app is available on Apple and Android smartphones, and can be found by searching for Access Aware in the app store.

Special vote winner Plans for red zone’s future

IF A week is a long time in politics then the two-week wait for the special votes seemed like a lifetime. With 15 per cent of the vote cast as specials, everyone knew that these votes could substantially alter the make-up of the new Parliament, and they delivered on that potential. Just how much of a difference only time will tell and, at the time of writing this column, this is still an unknown. Call me one-eyed, but I think the results in Christchurch are particularly interesting and pleasing. This election saw the return of Labour in Christchurch. It was fantastic that we held East, Port Hills and Wigram. It was especially gratifying to win back Christchurch Central, but the vote that really matters in terms of whether we are able to form a Government is the party vote. What I was delighted to see was a rebounding of the party vote across the city. In 2014, Labour did not win the party vote in any of the Christchurch seats. In fact, our vote in Christchurch

LAST week Regenerate Christchurch released 10 possible land use combinations for the future use of the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor – the residential red zone. Regenerate Christchurch has the responsibility for developing regeneration plans for this area; and this release of information is the next step in what has to date been a very collaborative and engaged process. People have already had the opportunity to contribute their ideas and these ideas have been considered by Regenerate Christchurch in the context of what the land can support.

The idea that houses might be built in the residential red zone has sparked a significant

was lower than the nationwide vote for Labour. We turned that around this election and scored party vote wins in Christchurch Central, Christchurch East and Wigram. Across the city, we were ahead of the nationwide Labour vote with around 40 per centplus in the metro seats. But this swing was not confined to the city seats. In Selwyn we more than doubled our proportion of the party vote and made good gains in Waimakariri. This return to faith of Labour is not something we will ever take for granted. The local MPs will continue to work hard for their communities and neighbourhoods, making sure local voices are heard. But more than that, whether we are in Government or opposition, we will continue to articulate and promote a clear and positive alternative vision for our city and our region. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

conversation – this is good. The thought of seeing any housing built in any part of the red zone is challenging for some people, especially some of those who accepted the Crown offer. I used to live there too, and I always understood that

home town’s situation that this Christchurch expat has read since the quakes. I sure hope it’s true.

A new car yard in Aranui will give its profits directly to community groups Stefan Mortimer – Car yard is not what we need. I live here and that yard should be used to build units to house the struggling. Emma Healey – That old supermarket building (right) would be perfect for Aldi (Australian discount supermarket). Affordable, highquality groceries, well-paid jobs with career progression and it would bring in customers from all over the city. The sooner Aldi come to NZ the better. Deb Brennan – Risky and could have been something more beneficial to those in need than a car yard.

although the land was badly damaged by the earthquakes, there would be options for areawide mitigation if the land was effectively cleared. It wasn’t considered cost-effective at the time of red zoning and that may still be the case. Perhaps it actually gives us an opportunity to think about trialling new residential options – houses that sit lightly on the land, which can be easily re-levelled, moved or relocated if necessary – and options for getting people into home ownership without necessarily owning the land. We have until the November 6 to give feedback to Regenerate Christchurch and I think it’s important that you do. Thinking about the future use of this vast area of land – nearly four times the size of Hagley Park – represents the best regeneration opportunity our city will ever have.  And you can be part of that. •If you want to ask Ms Dalziel a question, email mayor@ccc.govt.nz.

Katrina Criglington – Still not sure how safe it is to bike up Memorial Ave and Fendalton Rd. There may be bike lanes but it is still very busy and they are hardly separate from the road.

If the cycleway infrastructure is providing safety to help new or less confident people riding bikes then that is a success. •Biketober, page 36

Yumi Zouma come home for new album George Fenwick catches up with globe trotting Christchurch band Yumi Zouma YUMI ZOUMA have always been a fragmented band, spread between New York, Paris and Christchurch. While all four members are Kiwi, their 2016 debut album Yoncalla carried a sense of global nomadism – it was recorded in New York, named for a small town in Oregon, and its success saw them tour extensively around the world. But for their new album Willowbank, Yumi Zouma came home. Recorded over last December and January in Christchurch, New Zealand lives and breathes on the new record – right down to its title, which reaches far into the band’s past. “Willowbank’s where Charlie [Ryder] nearly drowned in as a seven-year old,” says Josh Burgess, one of the founding members of Yumi Zouma. “He thought the moss was grass and walked onto it. “We’re quite a nostalgic band,” he adds. While Yoncalla was made in

HIT: Yumi Zouma’s Josh Burgess (left) said recording their new album in Christchurch gave it a “relaxing feel”.

Burgess’ New York apartment, where recordings were taken in a closet and street sirens often interfered with takes, Willowbank saw Yumi Zouma able to bring their ideas to life at Christchurch’s Sawtooth studios. Burgess describes the recording process as surprisingly easy; indicative of New Zealand’s summertime, and our relative

isolation to the world. “It kind of felt like we were a band that all lived in the same place,” said Burgess. “We would go round to each other’s houses, and we’d go out to dinner together. It was very different to Yoncalla, which was very much in my apartment in New York, go, go, go, as quickly as you can – [Willowbank] just had a really

relaxing feel. “New Zealand’s a super unique place. Whenever I get off the plane and I get back into Auckland, you’re at the bottom of the world . . . Maybe it’s all in my head, but I definitely think that this record captures that kind of ‘the world is going on somewhere else’ kind of thing. We were able to shut off and just

make this record.” Willowbank may be rooted in New Zealand, but the world wants Yumi Zouma back. The morning I speak to Burgess, the four-piece have been hurriedly trying to sort out visas just hours before they fly out – on the world’s longest flight no less, travelling from Auckland to Doha as they head off on a European tour. The four of them are together now – but in the long term, Burgess says they may always be separated. “We write in isolation and then bring ideas when we record and we’re together,” he said. “I think if we all really tried to do it all together all the time, I’m not sure it would have the same sort of brush strokes. “I really think that Yumi Zouma is a sum of all our parts put together,” he said. Willowbank is out now via Cascine.

„„ By Bridget Rutherford FEARS PASSENGERS will injure themselves while getting on and off the ferry at Diamond Harbour Wharf has prompted staff to look into what improvements can be made. Black Cat Cruises told the Banks Peninsula Community Board about the difficulty of passengers boarding and disembarking the ferry from the Diamond Harbour side. Chief executive Paul Milligan said there was no ramp leading onto the ferry, so the passengers had to climb down steps. There was a risk of passengers falling between the wharf and ferry into the water, he said. “We’ve just identified with the number of people we’re carrying across there, getting on and off the boat at the Diamond Harbour side is not quite as easy as we would have liked.” Mr Milligan said they carried about 2000 passengers a week. He said they wanted a floating pontoon, like on the Lyttelton side, but he understood it wasn’t a quick fix. The board asked city council staff to look into whether any maintenance could improve safety and access.

TRAP: The Burgess gang (clockwise from top) – Joseph Sullivan, Thomas Kelly, Philip Levy and Richard Burgess. PHOTO: ALEXANDER TURNBULL LIBRARY

ON A winter’s afternoon, Felix Mathieu and his three companions were ambushed on a steep hill track by men pointing guns and knives at them. Richard Burgess and his gang lay in wait at a trap they had prepared at a big rock beside the track about 2km from the summit. They forced their victims up a creek and on to a hillside where they were tied up and variously strangled, stabbed and shot. The gang killed the travellers’ packhorse and made for Nelson with their victims’ gold and cash, where they were barbered and bathed and spent freely - and made plans to rob a bank. This was the case of the Maungatapu murders, by New Zealand’s most

ABOUT THE AUTHOR John Rosanowski was a schoolteacher for nearly 20 years and is well known in education circles. After he finished teaching he became chief examiner for school certificate history, among other roles. Over that time he has researched and written novels such as Bottled Lightning: The Story of the Reefton Electric Light and A History of the West Coast of the Southern Alps. He is primarily a factual historian, and tends to write about the West Coast having grown up in Reefton.

and heard of Mathieu’s plans to go to the West Coast to set up a new store, so would have known the businessman would be carrying a substantial amount of money. Mathieu set out with storekeepers John Kempthorne and James Dudley, and gold miner James de Pontius. With a packhorse, they were walking over the Maungatapu Track, then a rough route between Marlborough and Nelson and now a shingle road

popular with mountainbikers. The gang, who had been staying at Canvastown, left ahead of the Mathieu party. On their way to their trap at what is now called Murderers Rock, they caught up with solo traveller James Battle, 54, a labourer and former whaler. Near the Pelorus River, they partially strangled Battle, robbed him of his 3 pounds 17 shillings, and left him to die in a shallow grave. Only gradually did the Nelson

police become convinced that Mathieu’s group was missing, after a friend who had been following them at a distance became concerned and made his own inquiries. Eventually a massive search got going and one by one the gang were arrested after the first, Philip Levy, was recognised in the Wakatu Hotel by a Deep Creek gold miner. But the victims weren’t found until Sullivan confessed, taking

the police offer of a pardon to any informer other than the actual murderers. Incensed, Burgess penned a 50,000-word counter confession, in which he stated he and Sullivan were the killers and sought to clear Levy and Thomas Kelly. Other authors have pointed to the unreliability of parts of Sullivan’s story, but Rosanowski says his research of British and Australian convict records found Sullivan was even more of a liar than had been thought. He added that the Sullivan’s bloodied shirt, found under a log beside the Maungatapu Track, was “proof positive” of his involvement. “The blood-stained shirt and the fact he hid it should have destroyed his credibility as a witness.” Wayne Martin, author of Murder on the Maungatapu, a narrative history of the Burgess gang and their greatest crime, says it is more than likely Sullivan was a direct participant in all five murders and the killing of the surveyor-engineer George Dobson on the West Coast in May 1866. •Turn to page 30

Burgess, Thomas Kelly and Philip Levy were convicted and hanged in Nelson. Joseph Sullivan turned against his gang, giving evidence against them, and in return was not charged. He was subsequently convicted of a separate murder committed one day earlier but escaped the noose because of the authorities’ need to protect police informers, and the sentence was commuted to life imprisonment. Now author John Rosanowski controversially says his research indicates the Supreme Court jury got it wrong. “It seems clear that two innocent men were executed,” said Rosanowski, who has published his historical novel on the case, Treachery Road. “Kelly and Levy arrived back in Nelson unaware of the murders. Kelly thought robbery had taken place. Even on the gallows, Kelly said he was being executed for the murder of people he hadn’t even seen.

teenagers on the train. Police said it was a “completely unprovoked attack”. A 31-year-old Waikato painter and decorator was also charged and will be sentenced for indecent exposure in the Hamilton District Court on December 4. A 35-year-old teacher from Papamoa, near Tauranga, will appear tomorrow in the Auckland District Court charged with assault with intent to injure. The mother of one of the teens said her daughter and friend were travelling home on the train when they were confronted by five drunk men in costumes. – NZ Herald

Controversial look at murders •From page 29 Martin has no doubt Kelly was an active participant in most of the murders but says Levy probably wasn’t, being “more a bit player”. Their claims to have gone ahead while the other two were back down the track doing the murders were not credible. “They were in fact identified on the track after Battle’s murder with the other two by the Havelock Magistrate Pilliet as he rode past. Their journey to Nelson would have taken five hours or so at the most, but some 27 hours or so later they still hadn’t made it, as they allege the other two came upon them on their night journey back to Nelson after committing the main murders. “Kelly’s excuse that it took so long because he . . . ‘drank too much water’ is laughable. At trial he continually tried to get witnesses who were on the track to say that they had seen evidence of their camp etc., but no witness out of the several who were on the track over the relevant period corroborated their claim.’’ The execution was covered at length in newspapers. Nelsonians perched themselves on Church Hill and other high points for a glimpse of the grim proceedings, which ran late owing to long speeches by Kelly and Levy, who proclaimed their innocence to the last. Burgess, seemingly calm, shook hands with a host of officials, including the police Inspector Robert Shallcrass, before ascending the gallows and kissing his rope. Plaster casts were made from moulds of the men’s skulls, allowing their study for “phrenology”, now considered a pseudoscience, in which it was thought personal characteristics could be determined from the shape of the head. The provincial superintendent, Alfred Saunders, kept the men’s preserved skulls and brains and later gave them to the Nelson Phrenological Society. The five Maungatapu victims were buried at the Wakapuaka cemetery and a memorial was erected. A plaque marks the location of Murderers Rock on Maungatapu Track. Sullivan was despised, both in prison and in the community. He was transferred to Dunedin, then to Mt Eden jail, before being deported to England in 1874. He returned to Australia, where he was arrested. Victoria tried to deport him to New Zealand, but New Zealand refused.

Summer veges can be safely planted AS OUR recent weather has served to prove October is sometimes an unsettled month, but by the end of the month, temperatures have usually risen and the growth in the garden abounds. There are a million tasks to do in the garden; all enjoyable, especially the planting of the summer vegetable garden. It’s probably the most active month of the year in the vegetable garden. Prepare the area well by adding in new compost in significant quantities. All summer vegetables can now be safely planted, including courgettes/zucchini, cucumbers, beans, beetroot, carrots, celery, corn, leeks, lettuce, melons, onions, radish, pumpkin and tomato. To avoid vegetables all maturing at one time, stagger your plantings as continuous cropping and supply is much preferable. As plants become established, apply light side dressings of vegetable fertiliser to help develop strong healthy plants. Water young plants regularly and deeply to encourage a strong root system. The last of winter flowing annuals can now be removed and the soil prepared for new plantings. As with the vegetable plot, add plenty of compost to the soil and dig it over well to create a fine tilth (breadcrumb like texture) ready for planting. Summer flowering annuals can include alyssum, asters, cornflowers, californian poppy, cosmos, livingstone daisy, lobelia, marigolds, nemesia, petunias, portulaca, phlox, salvias, sweet peas and zinnias. In warmer areas, harvest seminole tangelo (which will finally be ripening) and grapefruit. The first application of fruit tree

Mow your lawn regularly to encourage vigorous growth. Classical winter flowering shrubs such as rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas are now coming to the end of flowering. They may require some minor pruning before they break into spring growth. Apply fertiliser to these plants in late October and apply mulch all around your shrubs. Now is a great time to plant containers and pots with summer flowering annuals such as petunias which are a favourite to provide colour throughout summer months. Start your new seasons display by removing existing potting mix, thoroughly cleaning the container before refilling with new container mix and planting. In the herb garden, remove any old plants from the previous season herb garden. Plant out new seasons herbs, including those that are frost tender such as basil. Clip your herb plants frequently for culinary use and to encourage fresh young growth.

Trim growth where it is not required. Mulch trees with crushed bark as the soil warms up to prevent weed growth and aid water retention during the hot, dry summer months. Early varieties of strawberries will begin to ripen towards the end of October. Check plants for any signs of grey mould (botrytis). Remove any infected leaves and ensure there is enough pea straw, mulch or hay around plants to keep developing berries clean and healthy It’s a busy time for lawn lovers. The first application of lawn fertiliser can now be made; hopefully at the same time as spring rain, otherwise water it thoroughly after applying.

Heralding the new wave of hydrangea The hydrangea is one of the easiest and most charming shrubs to grow, and its making a major comeback says Rachel Vogan SOME GOOD old-fashioned shrubs are climbing their way back up the popularity ladder, and hydrangeas are making that comeback quickly and in epic proportions. Suddenly they don’t seem to be old and fuddy-duddy anymore. The value of having a reliable plant that blooms for months on end and is easy-care appeals to the time-poor. Being adaptable to sun and shade simply boosts their appeal. Planting drifts of hydrangeas is an easy way of having a lowmaintenance, colourful garden display for months on end. These hardy shrubs can be grown all over the country, from the hot and humid north right down to the cold and chilly south. With foliage and form, these gap-filling shrubs need more recognition. Hydrangeas can be used in numerous ways: •  Planted under large trees. •  Blended into shrub borders. •  Planted along the shady cold side of the house. •  As patio and entranceway focal points. •  In pots and containers, and even hanging baskets if you can find one big enough. New dwarf hybrids are appearing every season, many of which are bred to cope with full sun as well as shade. This expands the areas in which they can be used in the garden. And it makes them ideal for growing in planters and large tubs. WHERE AND HOW TO PLANT Soil is the main thing to get right. Make sure it is well dug over before planting, blend on

MYSTIC: Hydrangea flower colours can change with different soil fertility.

half a bucket of compost or manure and sprinkle in some general fertiliser. Nestle in the plant, firm the soil around it, then add a layer of mulch around the base to keep the soil cooler and weeds away. Dwarf varieties are perfect pot-plant specimens, and hanging baskets options. If you can find one big enough, in most areas you will have foliage for nine to 10 months of the year and flowers for about half of that. PRUNING Prune hydrangeas each season after flowering in June, July or August. Remove about 50% of the stem, down to a set of fat plump green buds, which will develop into next season’s flowers. PROPAGATING HYDRANGEAS At pruning time, select some straight stems for cuttings. In a pot filled in potting mix or loose soil, insert these sticks until at least 50 per cent is underground. In three to four months roots will begin to appear through the bottom of the pot.

BLUE AND PINK HYDRANGEAS Hydrangea flower colours can change with different soil fertility. Many gardeners have been mystified by this as they may purchase a pink or red hydrangea in flower from the garden centre and find a year later, once it’s been in the garden a season, that the flowers have changed colour to a shade of mauve or blue. This is because flower colour is affected by the soil’s pH level. Flower colour can be changed easily by adding either lime to enhance red and pinks, or using aluminium sulphate to change to blue. TYPES Mop head. These are the big frilly-head hydrangeas, and probably the ones you associate with your grandparents’ garden. The heads can easily reach 30cm in diameter on older varieties. Lace cap.

These forms are loved for their unfussy habit and unlike some other hydrangeas they prefer full sun. ‘Limelight’ is the top seller over recent years, but, in 2017, two new ones will appear, both of which will have pinkbased blooms – ‘Sundae Fraise’ and ‘Diamond Rouge’. ‘Levana’ is a delightful cream one with exceptionally large petals.

ONES TO SEEK Saxon ‘Red Dawn’. This stunning smaller-growing type has masses of rich dark-pink, almost red flowers, which don’t seem to fade. It flowers for long periods and, due to its dwarf nature, is perfect for pots and containers on the patio or in your borders. It’s also a good option for attracting bees to the garden. Mai-ko range.

INDOOR HYDRANGEAS Yes, many of the newer hydrangeas have been bred to thrive indoors. Try to keep them away from the full sun inside; they are better in a slightly darker area.

QUESTION

My passionfruit plant had over 90 fruit this year, do we need to prune it and what fertiliser does it need? Would really appreciate your help.

Today’s winning question came from Robyn. Congratulations!

ANSWER

Firstly, well done - that is a fantastic crop of fruit! Before pruning your passionfruit vine, wait until there is absolutely no possibility of late frosts. Reduce the growth by approximately 1/3, tying the main leaders to a fence or wires. The growth that emerges from these leaders is where your next season’s passionfruit will appear.

Homegrown, juicy tomatoes are a summer favourite. There are many varieties to choose from in different shapes, colours, sizes and tastes. We have Daltons Tomato Packs to give away with everything you need to grow your own tasty tomatoes. Each pack is valued at over $60 and contains: • • • •

2 x Daltons Garden Time Tomato Mix Daltons Goldcote Vegetable & Herb Fertiliser Daltons Organic Bio-Fungicide Granules PLUS a pair of comfortable, versatile Red Back gardening gloves from Omni Products (www.omniproducts.co.nz)

BE IN TO WIN!

$60

PRIZE PACK!

Ensure the soil around your passionfruit is well drained – they do not like wet soil. Add Daltons 7in1 Boosted Compost as the soil warms in spring, and apply a light side dressing of Daltons Goldcote Landscape & Garden Fertiliser in late October.

z

Remember, passionfruit plants generally last about three to five years, therefore consider planting new specimens every two to three years to provide continuous fruiting. For more information and expert advice, check out our How to Grow guides: www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides

The price is pretty attractive too, but only for a limited number - Christchurch Mitsubishi have a selection or pre-reg Triton GLX-R available to driveaway now.

Might and glory of Kimberley’s Ord River „„ By Mike Yardley A PLETHORA of lifeproviding waterways carve their way across the wondrously ethereal landscape of the Kimberley, but the might and glory of the Ord River is the grandest of them all. Once the fastest flowing river in Australia, it was harnessed by the construction of two dams over 40 years ago to develop the agricultural industry in the verdant Ord Valley. The damming of the Ord created two spectacular storage reservoirs – Lake Kununurra and Lake Argyle. The latter is the southern hemisphere’s largest man-made lake, with mind-blowing dimensions. Its average water volume is the equivalent of 21 Sydney Harbours, while its maximum capacity equates to over 40 Sydney Harbours. This “inner sea” is so humongous, it sports bays, inlets and a multitude of islands, including Crocodile Island – which is freakily shaped in the spirit of its name. Our AAT Kings guided journey called into the Lake Argyle Resort for lunch, a stupendous holiday playground, complete with camping facilities, boutique studios and excellent dining options. Formerly it was the camp site for the dam construction workers, but in its reincarnation as a holiday resort, the star turn is the hillside infinity pool, high above Lake Argyle. Ingeniously designed, it’s showered with accolades as being Australia’s best infinity pool. We also stopped by a vestige of legendary Australian heritage at the Argyle Downs Homestead Museum. Originally located in the

Ord Valley, the historic 1890s homestead, was the family home of the pioneering Durack family. Following reports about Kimberley’s Ord Valley being favourable for pastoral land use, Patrick Durack organised the droving of 7250 head of breeding cattle and 200 horses on a 4828km trek from Queensland to the East Kimberley. It took them nearly two and half years to reach the Ord River, with the loss of half of their cattle. The beautifully graceful homestead, with its wide verandas and handcrafted limestone blocks, was relocated from its original site prior to the dam project, to safeguard it from being flooded and to serve as a monument to the guts and glory of those early pioneering cattle farmers. Patrick’s grandson, Kimberley Durack, was highly instrumental in bringing about the hugely ambitious irrigation scheme, transforming the Ord River region into a highly productive agriculture and horticulture area.

A runaway highlight of my time in East Kimberley was to drink in the river views, aboard an epic cruise traversing 55km on the water, from the Ord’s Top Dam to Lake Kununurra. Flush with flora and wildlife, the scenic medley serves up more vividly coloured rock formations in red earthy hues, torched by sunlight. Gliding into Lake Kununurra, the sinking sun kissed the lake like a starburst. The following morning, I was up with the jabirus to join a sunrise flight with Aviar across the East Kimberley from Kununurra. My scenic flight was piloted by a young and chirpy Kiwi, Sam from Tauranga, who expertly guided us on a gob-smacking aerial spectacle. Being aloft graphically illustrated the immensity of the Ord River. The irresistible showstopper was our flying foray with the fabled Bungle Bungle Range. This spectacular landform of tiger-stripped, beehive-dome shaped sandstone towers is nature at its theatrical best.

IMPRESSIVE: (Clockwise) – The valley from the Ord River dam, Argyle Downs homestead and flying above a fertile valley near Kununurra.

The Star

Driven „„ By Ross Kiddie I’VE BEEN in an out of the Honda dealer’s showroom frequently in the past few weeks, picking up and dropping off evaluation cars. There’s a certain feeling you get when a business is busy, it feels vibrant and, for lack of better words, somewhat exciting. It doesn’t surprise me that Honda are drawing in the public at the moment, several new models have launched close to each other and that generally lures in new buyers, and also those who are just curious. Importantly for Honda, a new CRV has just landed and the popular sport utility vehicle arrives hard on the heels of the new Civic hatchback and Civic Type R, the latter an eagerlyawaited hot-hatch. The reason why I mention Civic in this evaluation of the CRV sport utility vehicle, is because some Civic models share the same engine; yes, the fourcylinder, 1.5-litre turbocharged unit which powers Civic RS and RS Sport is the same mechanical element that powers the CRV, albeit the latter gets a crank up in power, it is rated with 141kW and 240Nm against the Civic’s 127kW and 220Nm. Before there’s any thought that a 1498cc engine in an SUV just doesn’t cut it, think again, recent generation CRVs have always had an engine with power outputs of around 148kW, the new unit is far from distant. It also uses a lot less fuel than ever before. Honda rates it with a 7.4-litre per 100km (38mpg) combined cycle average, which is a lot better than the previous generation model at 8.7l/100km (32mpg). During my testing time the new CRV was constantly providing an 8.8l/100km display along with a 6l/100km (47mpg) instantaneous figure at 100km/h on the highway, the new engine just loping over at 2000rpm. Therein lies another secret, the turbocharged unit provides maximum torque all of the way from 2000rpm to 5000rpm, that’s a broad spread and allows for solid response to throttle request no matter the speed.

HONDA CRV: Two and four-wheel-drive options.

If you also add into the equation the seamless supply of gearing you get from a continuously variable automatic transmission, you have a driveline that is remarkably responsive and cohesive. There are four new CRV variants, they start at $32,900 for an entry-level two-wheel-drive model, topping out at $47,900 for the four-wheel-drive Sport Sensing, the car this evaluation focuses on. • Price – Honda CRV Sport, $47,900 • Dimensions – Length, 4596mm; width, 1855mm; height, 1689mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, four-wheel-drive, 1498cc, 141kW, 240Nm, continuously variable automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 8.5sec • Fuel usage – 7.4l/100km

As its name suggests, Sensing incorporates a raft of safety systems which use crash avoidance sensors and features to remind the driver of traffic or objects which surround the vehicle. While the CRV is generally known as a capable four-wheel-drive vehicle in loose surface environments, it must be remembered it can’t conquer everything. The test car was showing just 300km on the odometer when I picked it up, for fear of getting it dirty I didn’t put it to the test away from the seal. However, on the media launch for the model I was set loose on roads south of Auckland, and together with a large section of rutted roadworks and getting lost on some shingle back roads, I can report the CRV has

suspension which absorbs well hits from uneven surfaces, and the driveline is engineered so that the tyres maintain their tenure on the road surface. The spring and damper settings are also structured for comfort and that is a compromise not all car engineers get right, especially in an SUV. However, the CRV cocoons all occupants, and having grown into an SUV that is definitely medium-size there is a wealth of onboard space which adds to that feel. In terms of on-road handling, the big Michelin tyres (235/60 x 18in) have a wide contact with the road surface and provide purposeful information back to the driver. On-road grip is high, and even though the CRV sits tall at almost 1.7m there is little body lurch over the suspension. The CRV’s handling manners are exquisite for an SUV. Add to that a solid response from under the bonnet and you have a vehicle which feels feisty and capable when the high country back roads beckon. Honda has a special way in which it does its interiors. The CRV is plush with leather trim and there is a cockpit layout that is complex yet intuitive. Even at almost $48k the new CRV can be described as a value purchase, it gets a high level of kit, and as I’ve eluded to many times in the past, the way Honda’s designers can squeeze space out of its interiors is just amazing, the CRV has cargo carrying capacity to burn, along with a practical, functional occupant area. The new CRV builds on success and epitomises Honda’s focus on familyfriendly vehicles. Nothing has been left to chance.

Astle top wicket-taker in India tie

„„ By Gordon Findlater CANTERBURY left-arm spinner Todd Astle produced the best bowling figures in New Zealand A’s exhilarating final delivery tie against India A in Visakhapatnam on Tuesday. Astle, 31, took four wickets and went for just 22 runs from his nine overs. The Canterbury cricketer of the year took two wickets in the space of three deliveries to have India A struggling at 84-5 chasing 269. However, a 126-run stand between Shreyas Iyer and Ankit Bawne saw them eventually tie the game on the final delivery of the match. Astle made his debut for Canterbury in 2005 but has made just two test appearances for New Zealand. Astle’s wicket-taking ability in domestic cricket is undoubtable. He has taken 312 first-class wickets at an average of 31.69. New Zealand A have three oneday matches remaining against India A. Then six players from the squad will be selected for New Zealand’s three-match ODI series against India.

Blokart racing pensioner speeds up

„„ By Gordon Findlater JIM GORDON can be found lying on a hammock most weekends – but it’s supported by three wheels and being blown along at more than 60km/h. Gordon, 86, is the country’s oldest blokart racer and has refused to slow down as he lines up for the New Zealand Open today at the Canterbury Blokart Club. In any sport, competing against someone half your age is impressive. But Gordon regularly competes with racers less than a quarter his age. Old age isn’t slowing him down either. You would forgive him for moving into a slower kart. However, Gordon’s done the opposite – he will race in the speedy lightweight performance class at the New Zealand Open, which takes place on the Air Force Museum of New Zealand’s tarmac. “When I was in the more basic kart I used to win races. Now that I’m racing in the elite crowd, I’m usually at the back,” said Gordon. Like any kind of racing, there are risks. Gordon has seen his fair share of incidents, including wheels flying high into the

air. He’s been involved in a few crashes himself but hasn’t been put off. “It’s a dangerous sport. I’ve had my fair share of incidents. The last big one I ended up in hospital,” said Gordon. Blokarting is still a young sport. Gordon has been around almost five times longer than

his craft has been. In 1999, the blokart was invented by Paul Beckett in the Bay of Plenty. Gordon was one of the first in Christchurch to sail a blokart when he first gave it a go on Waimairi Beach in 2004. It’s fair to say he caught the bug and since then has regularly competed at local club events

and national competitions. “In those days, it was just a small handful that started it off. Now there are more than 60 of us in Christchurch that race regularly,” said Gordon. As for when he thinks it’s time to pull the plug, Gordon says “I reckon I might be getting a wee bit tired by the time I’m 100.”

Rotorua, October 10-13 2017

The Christchurch Girls’ High School Senior A Netball team has qualified for the New Zealand Secondary Schools’ Netball Championships to be held in Rotorua 10 – 13 October. This is the first time since 2013 the team has qualified and came about after placing fifth at the South Island’s in September. Over the 2017 season the team has had some mixed results however, in the past two months they have made huge improvements in the consistency and intensity of their game. This has resulted in a fifth placing in the Wednesday Supernet competition, a very satisfying win in the Senior 1

Championship club final and qualifying for the NZ Secondary Schools’ event. The team, coached by Andrea Cousins, are excited by this opportunity to participate at the Nationals with 15 other teams from throughout New Zealand. Their first game is against Palmerston North Girls’ and then they come up against last year’s winners St Kentigern College from Auckland; a huge first day but the team are looking forward to the challenge! The players and management are most grateful to the businesses who have supported them through their generous sponsorship.

APPRENTICE: Jack Milligan is quickly building his CV after a podium finish in the Toyota 86 series at Bathurst. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Milligan lays the foundation „„ By Gordon Findlater JACK MILLIGAN is back on the building site after laying a solid foundation for his motorsport career across the ditch. The Prebbleton 21-year-old had a near perfect Bathurst debut last week which saw him make his way onto the podium at Mount Panorama in race two of the Aussie Toyota 86 series. Milligan has just over six months left to finish a building apprenticeship, but the plan is to be a national champion before he’s a qualified builder. “The next goal is to win the New Zealand 86 championship here,” said Milligan.

Jet skier top of world

The chances of that look good after his showing at Bathurst. “The objective going over there was to get into the top 10 at some stage. We realised that was going to be doable by the practice session and then to go and get a podium was awesome,” said Milligan. He had a good getaway in race two of the Toyota 86 series to slot into third around the outside of turn one and into second by turn two. He very nearly won the race after diving around the outside of leader and ultimate winner, Dylan Gulson. But the move didn’t come off and cost him second to Jimmy Vernon. Milligan also set the fastest lap time, 1/10th-second slower than

the Toyota 86 lap record. At Bathurst Milligan took on some of Australia’s up-andcoming motorsport stars, as well as stalwarts like Leanne Tander and David Brabham. The undulating track was also a chance for Milligan to tackle a track unlike anything he’d driven before. “We walked the track on Wednesday and I was amazed by how steep it was. It’s a massive drop coming down the hill, the television pictures don’t do it justice,” said Milligan. His attention now turns to the NZ Toyota 86 Championship, which begins with the opening round at Pukekohe on November 3.

CHRISTCHURCH jet ski racer Ben Morris has been crowned world champion at the IJSBA world finals in Arizona, United States. Morris, 14, became New Zealand’s youngest rider to win a world championship and is only in his second year of racing. He took out the junior ski 13-15-year lites class at the International Jet Sports Boating Association event at Lake Havasu City last week. He was dominant in the class, winning both of his races which count towards his overall position. He also finished second in the classic ski two-stroke class, finishing race one in second and race two in third. Morris follows a growing

list of Christchurch riders who have achieved world champion status in the sport of jet ski racing. He joined the junior racing development class run by Canterbury Jet Sports Club last year and has progressed quickly through the sport with top results. A number of other Christchurch riders also had success at the world finals. Corban Farnley, 12, finished second in both the junior 10-12year ski lites and the junior ski challenge. Mitchell Farnley, 15, finished sixth in the junior 13-15year ski lites. Marshall Brown, 59, finished third in the amateur ski lites and sixth in the amateur ski gp. Robbie Sutton, 25, finished third in the pro-am ski lites.

CHECKLIST FOR SELLING YOUR HOME … MAKE SMALL FIXES Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes, and correct the flaws that are most egregious (if affordable) or can be relatively easily fixed—from repairing cracks in the walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling creaky hinges.

… CLEAN & DECLUTTER Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks, and “stuff”—toss it, donate it, give it away, sell it at a yard sale, or put it into storage— so the house seems more spacious and buyers can imagine themselves in it.

… SET A PRICE A real estate agent will give you a market analysis free of charge or commitment. Ask a few to get a broader picture of the market, then ask to see listings for properties similar to yours that have sold in the past six months. Check out comparable listings yourself in the real estate section of your newspaper or on websites. Then decide whether you want a quick, easy sale or the highest possible price.

… STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT MAINTENANCE From the moment you start showing your house, keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens weeded, rooms spotless and clutter-free.
