„„ By Emily O’Connell MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel and the city’s top police officer will meet over the ongoing problems at the Riccarton bus lounge. Ms Dalziel hopes to meet with Superintendent John Price early next month, as finding solutions to anti-social behaviour at the bus lounge linger. 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 Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board members, business and landowners, police, community groups and residents’ association representatives,

has made 19 recommendations to help solve the issues. They 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. City councillors 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 instant fines can be effective but not if you don’t have the money to pay them, which a lot of children and their parents do not. •Turn to page 7

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK IF LIANNE Dalziel and police chief John Price can’t get any action on solving problems at the Riccarton bus lounge, then the war is lost (see page 1). That’s the latest twist on this long drawn out saga that is now nearly two years in the making. The problem: Teenagers and others causing problems for bus users and businesses in the area. The solution: Good, strong policing. But the police can’t be everywhere and disorder issues at the lower end of the scale get a low priority. However, people using the bus lounge should be able to do so without being hassled and made to feel intimidated. Police initially thought a bylaw would do the trick but that has gone by the wayside. A cynic might say resourcing. So it’s up to Dalziel and Price. – Barry Clarke

Objection over medical centre plan „„ By Bridget Rutherford and Andrew King SOCIAL ANXIETY, security risks and fears someone will report her dogs to the authorities are the reasons one neighbour has objected to a new medical centre in Hillmorton. But a few tweaks and she would be happy to let the development proceed. The Martin Family Trust applied to the city council in February 2016 for a consent to build an ‘integrated family health centre’ on 30-36 Lincoln Rd and 121 Domain Tce. The facility would include a pharmacy and will be split into six different tenancies. Ellyn Taawera-Patterson, whose property borders the proposed site, submitted against it saying the new development would raise security concerns and have a negative impact on her animals. A resource management act hearing panel met last Tuesday to hear her concerns. She said the previous neighbours, a Muslim church and Deerstalkers Association, had a high gate that was locked when they were not on site. “My understanding is the car park [for the medical centre]

the 90s because I knew it was all residential,” she said. “I don’t want to block it [the medical centre] entirely, I need to look after me though.” She has included in her submission a few suggestions to solve her concerns, including soundproofing her home and installing a high, locked gate and security lighting for the evenings and weekends. City council head of resource consents John Gibson said the hearing has not yet been closed by the commissioner and a decision is not likely for at least 15 days. “A hearing was required be-

won’t be locked [at night and on the weekends] which will give easier access to my property than previously,” she said in her submission. The increased vehicle activity in the car park, she said, could cause her dogs to bark, annoying the neighbours who then may report the noise, putting her responsible pet owner status at risk. Ms Taawera-Patterson said she has a phobia of people and the increased amount of people coming and going from the site could increase her anxiety and “ability to deal with life in general”. “I moved into this place in

cause when the application was notified there was a submission in opposition,” he said.​ Meanwhile, a resource management act hearing will be held today to discuss Foodstuffs South Island’s plan to establish a New World on 92-108 Lincoln Rd. It has applied for resource consent from the city council for the supermarket, which includes car parking, vehicle access, landscaping, signage and stormwater treatment. The supermarket would be built on the former SuperValue site, along with neighbouring properties.

In Brief INTERSECTION PROGRESS Public consultation on the proposed Cashmere, Hoon Hay and Worsleys Rds intersection improvement has finished. City council staff are currently working on a report which will go to the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board at its meeting on November 7 after analysing and collating the feedback. CEMETERY CLEAN-UP More than 25 residents and city council staff worked to clear 270kg of rubbish and greenwaste from the historic Addington Cemetery. The annual clean-up of the cemetery was supported by a Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board off the ground fund grant, which went towards a barbecue and drinks for the volunteers. NO PEDESTRIAN ISLAND A pedestrian island is not likely to be constructed on Tennyson St in Beckenham. City council staff investigated the possibility of a fifth refuge island on the street after the community raised safety concerns. However, after its assessment as a low to medium accident risk area, city council staff considered the street unlikely to be a priority for any available funding.

Veterinary practice

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A VET NURSE AT McMASTER & HEAP Its early morning and the HOSPITAL nurse is already hard at work, caring for her sometimes numerous & varied hospital patients who have stayed the night. She cuddles & chats away to them reassuringly as if they were her own! Some soiled patients are sponge bathed, while other patients are syringe fed. She checks, untwists and flushes IV catheters, administers morning medications, fresh food & clean bedding is lovingly placed! All observations are recorded ready for the “Vet rounds”, just as in a hospital! The Vets at McMaster & Heap rely heavily on the expertise and thoroughness of our nurses to inform us with regards to the patients in her care. The vets check over their patients, authorize blood tests or radiographs, change medication or nutrition plans and update the owners. Then its back to the hospital nurse to care for the needs of these patients over the course of the day, updating the vet, speaking to the family members involved and organizing visiting times. Excellent time management skills are required to triage the sick arrivals through the day and care for the already sick and injured. Note taking and recording of medications given is of utmost importance. Meanwhile the doors have opened & the RECEPTION nurse is cheerfully assisting the receptionist, greeting a continuous stream of pets and their owners arriving for today’s appointments & procedures!

She expertly multi tasks while answering the relentlessly ringing phones-today she will take a huge number of calls with a wide variety of questions. She must use her problem solving skills to know when it is OK for a patient to come in later in the day, or if in fact it may require a much more urgent consult time. The SURGICAL nurse gets ready for her busy day ahead. Patients start arriving at 8am for admittance and some days we have 4 vets operating and a list of over 15 surgical procedures to work through. Every nurse has a vet assigned to them to allow continuity of care. She will talk kindly & soothingly to each patient while efficiently placing IV catheters & obtain blood and urine samples to run diagnostic tests for the vet. She then calculates and administers her patients pre anaesthetic medications as instructed. Anaesthetic machines must then be checked & the surgical room fully equipped for the variety of today’s procedures! Once everything is ready, she will assist the vet in the patients induction and intubation, before swiftly attaching all monitoring equipment, as well as manual checks. Once happy the patient is stable, she sterile preps the

patients surgical site. She closely monitors the patient through the entire procedure, alerting the vet to any subtle changes in the patients anaesthetic depth, blood pressure and more. She carefully moves the patient over to a cosy recovery bed, where the hospital nurse is waiting to continue the post operative care. Evening consults are arriving & reception is a hype of activity. Phones are ringing constantly & owners are arriving to pick up their animals from surgery & hospital. The reception nurse expertly talks to owners experiencing a wide range of emotions, from extreme sadness, stress, anxiety, to those who are excited or just plain relieved to be able to see their furry friend once more. She goes over the large variety of discharge information that the vets & nurses have carefully put aside for their patients. The hospital nurse kindly talks to worried owners who are visiting their pets and updates them on the vets plan for overnight care. She carries out her final rounds and ensures everyone gets a cuddle goodnight! She assists the vet in preparing any extremely unwell patients that require transfer to the after hours clinic. At 7pm the last consult has finished, and the doors are closed! The nurses may still be buzzing around for another hour or so, depending on today’s work load. Although sometimes they are totally exhausted (& covered in various unidentified stains & smells!) they go home to their own pets with a big smile on their face. They know each day they assist the vets in making a huge difference to animals lives by putting 100% of time, love, care & knowledge to ensure each furry patient and it’s owner has had the best veterinary service and care possible!!

McMaster & Heap

City councillor Anne Galloway talks about car sharing, its benefits and why you should start doing it If cycling and taking the bus are not options for you, car pooling is another way to cut costs, chat with fellow travellers and potentially to speed up travel. Traffic, particularly on Halswell and Lincoln Rds, banks up regularly at rush hour at both ends of each day. It’s especially bad on rainy days when regular bus users or cyclists take to their cars to stay dry. Car pooling, as little as once a week or even once a fortnight will make a significant difference to traffic congestion. Wherever you are in the city, car pooling can help. Car pooling helps you save money, by dividing up the petrol costs among your car pool passengers. Car pooling also helps you

save on the cost of vehicle repairs and maintenance if you rotate vehicle use between the members of your car pool team. Additionally, you and everyone else can save some money on road fees because with more car pooling there are fewer cars on the road and therefore less wear and damage to the roads that need to be repaired each year using ratepayers money. Car pooling helps the environment. Car pooling cuts down on the number of cars and vehicles on the road. Fewer cars means there’s less carbon and other gasses and pollution getting into the air. This protects the environment by keeping the air, water, and land cleaner. Car pooling is good for your health. According to numerous health reports and research, air pollution

caused by auto emissions can significantly increase the likelihood of health issues such as asthma, allergies, lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Research data has also suggested that car pooling can be far less stressful than simply commuting on your own. Car pooling is a very convenient option which can give you great flexibility. Whatever your needs are, you can look for people who need that same schedule or who can add you to their route. The flexibility makes it a very convenient option for any long commute. Car pooling is also a wonderful way to meet interesting people, get to know the people you work with or go to school with, and to make new friends.

News Coach cracks whip with students Local News Now

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

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.

PRESENTATION: Pleasant Point Yacht Club commodore Alastair Burgess addressing the audience of more than 400 people with the members of Team New Zealand on stage.

Team NZ gives boost

GREAT NIGHT: Pleasant Point Yacht Club life member Bob Scott, 97, got his hands on the America’s Cup with Team New Zealand crewman Joe Sullivan during an event on Saturday night to raise money for the club’s rebuild.

„„ By Sophie Cornish ABOUT $25,000 was raised for the rebuild of Pleasant Point Yacht Club on Saturday night. The event called An Evening with Emirates Team New Zealand ran smoothly, said Pleasant Point Yacht Club spokesman Nigel Humphreys. The club rebuild is planned for South New Brighton Park. Life member of the club, Bob Scott, 97, was given to a lot of attention by Team New Zealand member Joe Sullivan. The for-

merly “very competitive” yachtie joined the club in 1936 and is the oldest living member. He was club commodore in the 1950s and club captain for many years. Mr Scott’s daughter, Carol Scott, said they had a fantastic evening and her father particularly enjoyed the team’s presentation which included footage on the water. Ms Scott said Mr Sullivan made a fuss of her father. The two men have mutual friends

including New Zealand sailor and broadcaster Peter Lester’s father, who Mr Scott went to school with. Mr Sullivan organised members of the Team New Zealand to sign a plaque commemorating Canterbury’s only challenge in the Little America’s Cup challenge in the 1974, which Mr Scott brought along on the night. The Little Americas Cup, now known as the International Catamaran Challenge Trophy, is a race between C class catamarans.

•From page 1 Senior Sergeant Stephan McDaniel said police are aware of the ongoing issues with youths congregating at the bus lounge. He said the problem is mostly during the late afternoon, weekends and school holidays. “To address the issue police are working with retailers in the area, local youth workers, the city council, mall and bus exchange security,” Senior Sergeant McDaniel said. He said as a result of the multiorganisation approach, police have seen a decrease in reports of anti-social behaviour. The other 17 recommendations are still being investigated by staff and reports will be presented to the 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.

Culture and hygiene mix at Sacred Heart SACRED HEART School pupils in Addington were among the first Christchurch children to get their hands on innovative posters that use humour to promote Te Reo Maori. Designed by commercial cleaning company CrestClean, the posters also contain important health and hygiene messages. Depicting cartoon characters, the four unique designs immediately struck a chord with the school. Principal Frank McManus believes good resources in Te Reo Maori are scarce and the posters will be a big hit at the school. The posters would also double as a teaching aid in the school’s Te Reo programme. “Health and hygiene is huge. We don’t always have the right messages up around the school,” said Mr McManus. “These bold posters are fantastic for that. If one child is doing it right then they are likely to pass it on to others and that’s great,” he said.

Sets of the posters are available free to all schools. The poster initiative has been hailed by the president of the Te Akatea New Zealand Maori Principals’ Association, Hoana Pearson. “For years, many of us in Maori education have been hand drawing and photocopying our resources,” she said. “To see things that are beautiful and produced in colour for our kids and our communities really validates the beauty of Te Reo and of them.”

POSTERS: Sacred Heart School principal Frank McManus receives the posters from CrestClean regional manager Gina Holland. Looking on are pupils Rachel Flutey, Sean Ferrer, Angelo Bancale, and Te Haeata Noble-Gray.

LEARNING: A free basketball clinic was run by Youthtown and the Canterbury Rams for school children during the holidays.

The free camps for seven to 18-year-olds took place over three days and at Linwood College and Hillmorton High School. Four camps were delivered to 120 primary, intermediate and high school students.

The camps were designed to give young basketballers an opportunity to sharpen their skills and make new friends while being mentored by Canterbury Rams players Lessons such as the importance of dedication and discipline, being a team player and a positive contributor were all a part of the programme.

Hazel Cain – About time our animals had a great park with plenty of different smells to find. Lisa Peters – How fantastic our dogs love it there. Nice and safe. Great place on a warm day.

Jenny Bradley – Can’t help thinking this will attract people

THE TE Oranga Waikura urban forest and stormwater basin was scheduled to officially open last night. The urban forest has been planted in Woolston on land that was previously part of Linwood College’s lower fields. The earthquake-damaged land was bought by city council to use as a stormwater basin to reduce the risk of flooding for properties in the surrounding area during severe weather. The city council has turned the flood mitigation measure into a forested reserve that will also bring ecological and community benefits. The reserve features a loop walkway and more than 16,000 naive trees and plants. It was opened last night with a formal blessing ceremony which was attended by city councillors, Linwood Central Heathcote Community Board members, the Te Waka Una School Kapa Haka, city council general manager of city services David Adamson and members of the public. Community board chairwoman Sally Buck said the board is very excited about the opening of the reserve. “While some of us might not see the full benefits in our lifetime, this is a true legacy project and will be enjoyed for generations to come. It will create a green space in a part of the city that really needs it while also reducing the risk of flooding for local residents, which is very important.” Council landscape architect and ecologist Dr Antony Shadbolt said the reserve will seem forest-like within a decade. It is strategically located to provide both a core habitat and a stepping stone for native bush bird movement across the city.

Urban forest opens in Woolston

Cherry Daly – Regarding the proposed dedicated dog park at Ferrymead. I agree that the eastern suburbs are in dire need of a dedicated dog park. This site is central to the region and would be absolutely perfect. Many thanks to city councillor Yani Johanson for making this proposal and hoping that the notoriously anti-dog city council will see their way clear to approving this as soon as possible. Michael Wilson – This is a brilliant idea. I live in the area and frequently take my dogs to this area for exercise. I’m sure this will go some way to controlling the rabbits and stopping the dirt bike guys being annoying early evening. Bravo to the person who thought of this.

Gapper takes Canty rugby award SPORTS TERAUORIWA Gapper was named women’s sevens player of the year at the recent Canterbury rugby awards evening. From Heathcote Valley, she was one of the players who received awards at The Piano Centre for Music and the Arts. Gapper’s fitness, speed and physicality make her an ideal sevens player.

LEADER: TeRauoriwa Gapper won the women’s sevens player of the year award after leading the team to a South Island title. PHOTOS: CHARLIE ROSE CREATIVE ​

Gapper also possesses a high work rate, aptitude on defence and the ability to beat defenders one-on-one. As captain, Gapper led the Canterbury women’s sevens team to the South Island regional title, as well as the national tournament. She always features prominently whenever she wears the red and black jersey.

HARD WORKER: Canterbury University’s Sam Godwin won the Canterbury development player of the year award for his “unquenchable thirst for work”.

A number of other players from around Canterbury picked up awards

PEOPLE’S CHOICE: Former Linwood player Richie Mo’unga won the Canterbury rugby supporters club player of the year award.

•Marist Albion’s Daniel Fransen was named men’s sevens player of the year after an outstanding club spring sevens series, and season with the Canterbury sevens team which earned him selection in the New Zealand development team. He scored 12 tries during the campaign and showed adept goal-kicking abilities to finish with 118 points for the season; 44 of which were scored at nationals. •Christchurch’s William Tucker took home the men’s under-19 player of the year award. The young lock was recognised for his diverse skill set, aerial abilities and important set-piece contribution. He also has a significant role off the playing field as a leader within the group. Tucker accumulated

an impressive amount of time on the paddock this year, having played every minute of every game throughout the representative season. •Christchurch’s Lucy Anderson and Lincoln’s Rebecca Todd were joint winners of the women’s player of the year award. Anderson pairs solid defence with an intelligent attacking mindset and strong ball carrying skills. She exhibits great leadership in the Canterbury backline. Todd, who is equally as prominent on defence and attack, has played at both No 8 and hooker already this season. The Lincoln University player inspires others with her consistently high work rate, on-field organisation and ability to read the game. •Canterbury University’s

TOP TALENT: Christchurch’s Lucy Anderson and Lincoln University’s Rebecca Todd were joint winners of the women’s player of the year award.

Sam Godwin was named Canterbury development player of the year. Godwin’s unquenchable thirst for work sees him regularly feature at the high end of individual tackle counts. •Lincoln’s Nick Werahiko was named Maori player of the year. He was recently awarded his blazer for playing 100 division one games for his

club and was named Waitaha captain for the second year. He featured in the Canterbury A side on a number of occasions this year. •Former Linwood player Richie Mo’unga was named Canterbury rugby supporters club player of the year. The first five-eighth has had an outstanding success rate with the boot this season and is one of the leading point scorers in the Mitre 10 Cup competition for Canterbury. Mo’unga shows composure and maturity beyond his 23 years as he directs play from the cutter. •Prebbleton life member Tony Grimwood was named volunteer of the year for his 38-year commitment to the club. There is no job too big or small for Grimwood, who said he didn’t do it for an award. “It’s a great club . . . So it is quite easy to see why the years have flown by,” he said.

Fighter overcomes poor start „„ By Tania Butterfield WHEN 16-YEAR-OLD Cashmere High School student Kai Edwards stared down his opponent in the final of the men’s junior dan kendo competition, he had one thing on his mind. “I have to squish this spider. But if I get cocky, he can bite me back.” Kai was one of nine members of the Sei Tou Ken Yu Kai Canterbury Kendo Club to participate in the Rembuden Taikai competition in Wellington. About 60 of New Zealand’s top competitors attended the event. Kendo is the Japanese martial art of sword fighting, known as ‘the way of the samurai.’ Competitors use their shinai (bamboo sword) to hit their opponent on the hand, head or torso to score points.   Kai is one of four New Zealanders who fight in the jodan (sword above the head) position. “The biggest challenge of the competition was the continuous thought of “What if I lose this fight?,” Kai said. “I wanted to show the judges my full potential and that they had made right decision choosing me to be the New Zealand team apprentice for next year’s world championships.”

[Edition datE] Kai Edwards is one of four New Zealanders who fight in the jodan (sword above the head) position.

Losing his first fight of the day was difficult, but Kai credits the support of his coach Blake Bennett and fellow teammates to get him through to the final. “They gave me the encouragement to get back up onto my feet and push through, remembering what my best result is,” Kai said. “Blake had told me that kendo isn’t all about winning, getting a medal is only a bonus. This taught me to think not just about the winning but to focus on doing the best of my ability and to have no regrets.”


BOW WOW: These pooches got a ride on the tram at Ferrymead Heritage Park.

Cr Johanson said the site would be suited to a dog park. “There is a shortage of dog exercise areas in the bay harbour area. You’ve got the beaches but there have been restrictions put on around what time of year (you can take dogs) and there’s often stock grazing up at John Britten Reserve.”

“A local team for local people”

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit, most homes include at least one heat pump, if not a whole heating solution. They can provide cheap, clean heat and are much more convenient than a log burner as you just need to press a button. But how do you decide what is best? Choosing the right sized heat pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore important to get professional advice from heat pump experts. The range varies from wall mounted high walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems, ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted central heating systems allowing you to have a very discreet way of heating your whole home to a constant temperature throughout. Firstly, you must select a heat pump that is suitable for the size of the space you wish to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area taken into consideration but also, insulation, building orientation, windows and ceiling space. There are a wide range of heat pumps available with different heating outputs so it is important to select the correct size for your requirements that will handle the job but not be unnecessarily overpowered. Secondly, the location of your heat pump is also extremely important. The cheapest installation is a back to back where the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind the indoor unit however this is not necessarily always the best option. It is vital that the indoor unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is the location of the outdoor unit. Most people do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly in their outdoor entertaining area or right outside their bedroom window. Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands have come and gone over the years but there are a number of manufacturers who provide reputable and reliable products. All brands vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems and price, so it depends on your application as to which will be most suitable. Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands backed up by good technical after sales service. Ensure your heat pump is installed by an accredited installer. This will not only ensure correct installation of your heat pump, but also validate the manufacturers warranty. Other things to consider when choosing a heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi capabilities. Heating is a major investment in your home and it is vital to get the right advice. Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply, installation and servicing of all major brands of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as to which system will suit your application the best.
