Teen thought he would drown during attack

Battered to death and burned

„„ By Georgia O’Connor Harding and Andrew King A GROUP of youths chanted “drown him” as they held the head of a 15-year-old under water on Saturday night. The teenager was brutally beaten up in Rolleston before being dragged to a water race and pushed under. Police are following strong leads in identifying the attackers. Said Senior Sergeant Pete Stills: “He has received a real pasting. His eyes were swollen shut and he needed stitches for a pretty serious gash underneath his chin,” he said. “It was a harrowing attack by a group on a lone individual, “completely unprovoked and cowardly”. The attack appears to have been robbery-motivated. Four youths approached the 15-year-old on Tennyson St, Rolleston, at about 10.30pm and demanded his cap, Senior Sergeant Stills said. He had earlier been at a nearby fireworks event in Foster Park. When he refused to hand over the cap, the group repeatedly punched him and kicked him on the ground. They dragged him to a nearby water drain and held his head under the water. •Turn to page 9

Thursday November 9 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

DRUGS ARE a terrible thing and they can lead to promising, talented people going on a tangent that ultimately leads to tragedy. On pages 4 and 5, we look at one of those individuals – Marcus Tucker. Tucker was murdered in April, 2016, and last week his killer was jailed for life. He leaves behind three children who will go through their lives without their dad, and with many questions as to why. Tucker’s case is a tragic one. He was no angel. He got in with the wrong people and did a reasonable amount of time in jail. Getting in with the wrong people has its upside if you are of that ilk, but it also brings with it constant danger. Some people play for keeps and getting killed or a severe beating can come with even the most minor of indiscretion. But the sad thing about Tucker’s case is that he may have been the victim of mistaken identity. - Barry Clarke

E. coli found in Lyttelton pump station E. COLI bacteria has been found in a pump station used to supply water to homes and businesses in the Lyttleton area. The city council is chlorinating the water supply and warns people in Lyttleton, Governors Bay and Diamond Harbour may notice an odour and taste in their water for a “few days”.

It was detected during routine testing of the water at the Scruttons pump station in the Heathcote Valley, said the city council. The pump station feeds water through to the Lyttelton Harbour basin via the Somes Reservoir in Lyttelton. Lyttelton Community

Assocation chairman Ken Maynard said his property was serviced by the pump station but he hadn’t yet noticed any change in smell or taste due to the chlorination. Several Lyttelton residents said they had been experiencing sore tummies on and off over the past few weeks.

Canterbury District medical officer of health Alistair Humphrey said the e. coli had been picked up early and there was not expected to be any health concerns. Upset stomachs were common, he said. People should go to their doctor if they had any concerns.

Council’s cheaper car park prices ruffle feathers „„ By Bridget Rutherford PRIVATE CAR parking operators in the central city are concerned cheaper charges in the new Lichfield St Car Park will take away their business. It will cost $2.80 an hour to use the new city council Lichfield St Car Park, which opens tomorrow, more than $1 cheaper than other privatelyowned buildings. Central City Business Association manager Paul Lonsdale said there was some concern among private operators the new car park would take their business because it was significantly cheaper. “If the council’s wanting developers to develop car parks, they can’t come along and undercut the prices.” The car park’s opening also marks the beginning of the trial of an hour’s free parking in all city council-owned off-street car parks in the central city. It will cost motorists $2.80 an hour to park in the Lichfield St Car Park from 6am-6pm every day. All day parking would be $10, while the night-time hourly rate would be $2.50. In comparison, it costs $2 to park in The Crossing and Hereford St car parks for up to half an hour, $4 from 31min to an hour, with an extra $2 every half hour

In Brief ECO-BURIAL A new eco-burial site will open within the Diamond Harbour Memorial Gardens Cemetery next week. This will be the first eco-burial site to open in Christchurch or Banks Peninsula. A more environmentally friendly process than what is usual in New Zealand, eco-burials involve a shallower plot. The body is not embalmed, is dressed in natural, biodegradable materials, and the coffin or shroud is also biodegradable and non-toxic. QE II MAORI NAMES The Coastal-Burwood Community Board will participate in a closed workshop at the end of the month to discuss whether the new QE II site will receive some Maori names. The workshop will be with the city council. There may be a Maori name added on to the name of the park or some streets may receive Maori names. Discussions and approval from the Queen’s office will be required before anything can be added to the park’s original name. NEW COUNCIL VIDEO GEAR The video equipment used to live stream city council meetings has been upgraded. City council chief information officer Vicki Taylor said it was a planned upgrade to replace technology that was more than seven-years-old. She said the improvements had utilised technology changes over that time. “There has been no change in our video streaming provider.”

thereafter. City councillor Jamie Gough said the Lichfield St Car Park and the free parking trial would bring more people into the central city and, in turn, benefit private operators. He said people also liked convenience and, if they wanted to park closely to a particular place, they would pay more to

do so. The city council was not looking to undercut private operators, but it had to do what was best for the public, he said. “We have the public’s interest at heart.” Cr Gough said the private car parking buildings leased spaces to corporate vehicles and fleets, so short term parking was not their only

GATEWAY OPENING The new Memorial Avenue Gateway Bridge will open to traffic next week.

The lively young boy who grew Small-time criminal Marcus Tucker was brutally murdered over a possible mistaken identity. Two weeks before his death, his mother and brother pleaded with him to sort himself out. Andrew King reports FLIRTY, LOYAL, protective and a troublemaker were words family and friends used to describe the man who was brutally killed after he was wrongly accused of ripping off a drug dealer. Marcus Luke Tucker’s badly bashed and burnt body was found by fishermen on Anzac Day, 2016, in a drain on a country road near Doyleston on the way to Leeston. Last week, Peter John Carroll, 53, was sentenced in the High Court at Christchurch to life imprisonment with a minimum non-parole period of 17 years for Mr Tucker’s murder. A post-mortem showed he had a fractured skull, and broken nose, eye socket and shoulder blade, as well as missing teeth.

It was later discovered the injuries were caused by a sustained and brutal attack by Carroll with a metal steering lock. Marcus was born on May 21, 1979, at Burwood Hospital, weighing 2.9kg (6lb 9oz). He was the oldest of three Tucker children. His mother Robyn and stepfather, Murray Tucker, who was in the military, spent a handful of years in Christchurch before they were transferred to Hobsonville, Auckland, in 1982 “He [Marcus] was a busy boy who never stopped. He was always into lots of little mischievous things,” Mrs Tucker told The Star this week. She recalls Marcus and a friend, when they were about 4, getting onto a nearby airfield on their trikes while the family searched for them. A low flying helicopter hovering over the airfield spotted them and let the family know where they were. “He just smiled about the whole situation,” Mrs Tucker said.

BROTHERS: Matt Tucker said no one was closer to Marcus than him. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

In 1983, the family moved to Waiouru, in the central North Island, where Marcus started school the following year. Not an academic, Marcus soon showed a skilled hand with art and had a keen ear for music – two passions he kept close right up until the end. In 1985, the family returned to Burnham and Marcus attended Weedons School. He played sports, made friends and was a normal kid, his mother said. His father left the army in 1990 and the family moved to Fairlie. Marcus attended Fairlie Primary and Mackenzie College. It was in Fairlie where the wheels started to fall off. His brother, Matt Tucker, told The Star Marcus had a falling out with his parents. It is something Mrs Tucker doesn’t want to discuss. When Marcus was about 16, he spent time with a foster family in Timaru for about eight months. It was here where the trouble started.

up to meet a terrible end He was involved in robbing Russian seamen and was sent to the Whakapakari facility on Great Barrier Island, a Government-funded and supervised wilderness boot camp. Matt said it was just like his brother to go along with something like that. “It wasn’t like he would be the one who would say, ‘let’s go do this or that’ but he would be the first one to get involved if some else had the idea.” “He would have the two parrots on his shoulder, good and bad, and he would just listen to the bad one every time.” In Timaru, he gave himself the fateful name ‘Ruckus’, a combination of his first and last names, Mrs Tucker thinks. During the court case, the Crown alleged Carroll had believed Marcus, because of his nickname, was involved in a gunpoint robbery of a drug dealer in March, resulting in $10,000 drugs being taken. Carroll was tasked to teach him a lesson. But the Crown said it was a case of mistaken identity. Marcus had been using fake $100 notes to pay for methamphetamine but was not related to

the March robbery. Mrs Tucker said when he was about 15 or 16, he started to drink. But she believes he hadn’t started to use harder drugs like methamphetamine. In 1996, after his stint on Great Barrier Island, he rejoined the family, which had moved back to Christchurch and were living in Sydenham. But the downward spiral was already happening. Said his sister Belinda Ross:

“He just started hanging out with the wrong crowd. He was looking for a connection with other, like-minded people who had things in common.” He was in and out of jail numerous times, usually for drug and dishonesty offences, including breaching hire purchase rules, cheque fraud and drink-driving while his licence was suspended. He would use methamphetamine and synthetic drugs.

“There were times I would tell him to settle down, that caused a few arguments, sometimes in the middle of the street,” said Matt. In 2015, Marcus wrote to Matt from jail, saying he was remorseful for the times he had lashed out at Matt for telling him to slow down on the drugs. In the weeks leading up to his death, Matt had confronted his brother about his use of synthetic cannabis, a habit he had developed while in prison during 2013. “He would get quite spaced out by it. I told him to stop taking that f*****g s**t, it’s pathetic,” he said. Matt said Marcus would sometimes forget he had purchased drugs after a serious head injury he sustained in Dunedin at the hands of a gang member. Marcus was dancing with the man’s girlfriend, which he took exception to and smashed him in the eye with a large rock from behind. Marcus underwent facial reconstructive surgery. Matt last saw his brother about a week before he was battered to death at a Bishopdale property. Matt said: “See you later bro. Watch out, there is something

happening in Christchurch at the moment.” Two detectives arrived on his doorstep to give him the bad news. He then called his parents, his mother who lives in Blenheim, and father in Christchurch. Said Mrs Tucker: “He (Matt) called me saying ‘mum it’s Marcus, mum it’s Marcus, mum it’s Marcus, and it is not good’. I said ‘it’s okay, I am on my way’.” The following day they went to the morgue. At the morgue, Matt said: “I just said ‘rest in peace bro, those that did this to you will live in hell’.” Until she saw his body, she did not believe he was dead, said Mrs Tucker. “I was begging him two weeks before his murder to sort his s**t out for his kids . . . he just said ‘yeah, yeah, yeah. It’s all good mum’.” Marcus had three children to three different women. The first, Caleb, was born on his 18th birthday. “I told him ‘you don’t know what you are in for’, but he was excited about his son,” said Mrs Tucker.

Pero’s former company after $2.2m „„ By Hamish Fletcher

MIKE PERO Mortgages has been given the green light to pursue its founder and namesake for $2.2 million that he overpaid himself at their jointly-owned real estate business. The move is the latest in a long-running legal dispute between Mike Pero (right) and the mortgage broking firm that still bears his name, the NZ Herald reported this week. While the Christchurch-based entrepreneur no longer has a stake in that business, both are shareholders of Mike Pero Real Estate. Mr Pero is the chief executive of that nationwide real estate network and last year was found by a High Court judge to have given himself a pay rise without his co-owner’s approval. The real estate boss, according to the judge, increased his salary from $200,000 to $340,000 a year and also authorised an additional “brand ambassador” payment to himself of $125,000 per annum. Mr Pero and another company he controls was ordered to pay back all money they received in excess of $200,000 a year. That was later calculated as

being $2.179 million. As of last month, none of it has been paid back. Mike Pero Mortgages recently applied to the High Court to bring legal action on behalf of the real estate business to recover the funds. Mr Pero’s lawyer told Justice Sarah Katz, at a hearing last month, that the mortgages business was likely contemplating bankruptcy moves against his client and liquidation proceedings against his company. However, Mike Pero Mortgages’ lawyer said that enforcement action could also include charging orders and sales orders against Mr Pero’s assets. Liquidation or bankruptcy proceedings were only two of many available options, he said. Mr Pero’s lawyer said that any bankruptcy action that the real estate business took against his client would bring considerable negative publicity and damage to its brand. Mike Pero Mortgages director Sherman Ma said in an affidavit to the court that he believed the real estate business could still thrive without its namesake. “In Mr Ma’s view, MPRE has reached a level of development such that it could continue to be

successful, and could transcend its connection with Mr Pero, should that become necessary,” Justice Katz said. The judge said the costs of enforcement action would be low – relative to the amount at stake – and that the real estate business was not in a position to pursue proceedings itself because Pero was a director

and opposed such a course. Granting Mike Pero Mortgages’ application would restore the usual creditor/debtor dynamic that would exist if Pero was not on the real estate firm’s board. “Any discussions regarding recovery of the judgment sum can take place against the background that if a reasonable

resolution cannot be reached, MPRE is in a position to take or continue with enforcement action. It is in MPRE’s interests that the full range of recovery options are available to it, including enforcement action against Mr Pero and [his company],” Justice Katz said. She gave Mike Pero Mortgages leave to take enforcement action on behalf of the real estate business against Pero and his firm. Mr Pero in a statement to the NZ Herald said: “This is an issue between the two shareholders of Mike Pero Real Estate Ltd – Sherman Ma and me, and relates primarily to historical issues. “It has nothing to do with the company’s (MPRE) trading, which remains strong nor the company’s day-to-day activities, which continue to go from strength to strength. “We currently have our own Shareholder’s Dispute Resolution process in play to prevent future litigation and I remain hopeful that this issue will be resolved to the satisfaction of both parties,” he said. A spokesperson for Mike Pero Mortgages said: “The Mike Pero Group looks forward to quickly resolving this matter and to continue providing exceptional service to its valued customers.”

‘Hey, just move your house’

„„ By Bridget Rutherford MOVING A Spreydon woman’s house after five two-storey townhouses started being built next door is one of the options suggested to make her home more liveable. In an email to Bolton Ave homeowner Kim Mehlhopt, city council head of resource consents John Higgins said one option could be to “re-site” the house on her property as part of her EQC repairs. Her home may need to be lifted and a new foundation put down as part of those repairs. “They expect, hey, just move your house,” Ms Mehlhopt said. In September, The Star revealed JSJ Investments was building townhouses next door to Ms Mehlhopt’s home of 15 years – the garage less than a metre away. She said the development will devalue her home, cost her privacy, and the street’s family orientated appeal. But under the District Plan, zoning for the development is compliant. The city council has met with JSJ Investments director Nick Johnston to discuss how the development could be altered to

Attacked teen thought he would drown •From page 1 Then in an appalling move, some in the group urged the others to drown him. “We are unsure how long he was underwater for,” said Senior Sergeant Stills. “At one stage and he believed he was going to be drowned.” The teenager eventually broke Pete Stills free and attempted to run home. The teenager’s mother, who did not want to be named, said he collapsed near their house and caught the attention of the neighbour’s who brought him home. “I didn’t recognise him, I thought ‘who the hell are you’,” she said. “He couldn’t talk and his mouth was full of blood.” They called 111 and he was taken to Christchurch Hospital. The teenager was discharged from hospital on Sunday. Anyone with information can call the police on 363 7400 or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

to be granted and her backyard garden shed would need to be removed to build the fence. “How can they grant nonnotifiable consent when we have to do things on your neighbour’s property?” Ms Mehlhopt said. “At this point, I continue to allow no access to my property.” Mr Higgins said in the email the city council had also discussed compensation or a possible buy out with the developer. But the email said the developer did not feel the need to pay compensation because the development was complaint, and he wanted to see how the units sold before offering to buy her out. Ms Mehlhopt said she kept being told little could be done because the development was too advanced. She contacted a lawyer this week. “There’s no benefit to me at this point.” The discussions came after city council staff, Wigram MP Megan Woods and city councillor Phil Clearwater visited Ms Mehlhopt to discuss her concerns following stories in The Star. The issue has been referred to the District Plan team to consider any future changes to it.

beats inner city living in Chch The research said the planning practices and policies in force to encourage mixed-use development may “reduce the attractiveness” of inner-suburban properties. But it said the findings should not hinder efforts to encourage mixed-use development living, and more research needed to be done on how to make highdensity living more attractive. Central Ward city councillor Deon Swiggs, who lives in the inner-city, said in foreign countries, they only went home to sleep. “We need to make our city centre the living room for people who want to live in the central city.” He said the offer of living in the central city was not as appealing as it used to be. But with new apartment blocks and the East Frame being built, it was improving, he said. But Christchurch needed to cater for everyone and, for some families, the inner-city was not appropriate, he said. In July, a city council survey found a lot of people did not feel safe in the central city. To make it safer, it needed to be more

populated, Cr Swiggs said. Central City Business Association manager Paul Lonsdale said housing in the inner city needed to be affordable. “I know the council has had a wish to have a lot of people living back in the central city by a certain time,” he said. “If the council’s really keen on making that happen, they have to do something to assist that momentum, otherwise it won’t

happen to the degree they want.” Mr Lonsdale said businesses would thrive if more people lived closer, and some could stay open for longer to cater for that. With more people, came increased safety at night, he said. He said Christchurch had amenities, such as parks and open spaces in the central city, which lessened the need to own a larger property and backyard. “Having a quarter acre section

is a life of work.” Dr Kusumastuti said it would be difficult to make inner-city living more attractive, because it was Christchurch culture to own homes with backyards. But she said culture could be changed Paul Lonsdale because the current outwards spread of housing was not sustainable. That had happened in Auckland, with many people deciding to compromise on size because of a lack of affordability, she said. Ways to make inner-city, mixed-use living more attractive should be investigated, she said, which included the design of the buildings to try and reduce noise. The research was supported by the Building Research Association of New Zealand through the Building Research Levy. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What are your views on high density living?

East Frame unsuitable for dog park plan „„ By Bridget Rutherford THE CENTRAL city’s East Frame will not get a dog park after it was considered an unsuitable location. It came after the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board asked Fletcher Living, which is building the residential development, if there was provision for a dog park. The board said it would cater for people and their pets living in the central city. But Otakaro chief executive Albert Brantley has since written back saying after speaking with the city council’s parks and animal management team, the East Frame was considered unsuitable. “The team commented that due to the long, linear nature of the East Frame reserves, and their proximity to high density housing, the area is not considered appropriate for the siting of a dog park.” Otakaro is the Government agency overseeing anchor projects like the East Frame. Mr Brantley said Otakaro acknowledged a dog park was needed for the central city, but a careful site selection process would need to be done.

Woods, Dalziel talk rebuild, mental health MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel met with new Minister for Greater Christchurch Regeneration Megan Woods on Friday to discuss priorities for the city. Ms Dalziel said the meeting was the first of many to come. She said Dr Woods had a clear understanding of the issues Christchurch is facing. “Most importantly, it was a great start to forming a successful working partnership between the new Government and the city.” Ms Dalziel said the new Government had “synergies” with the city council’s strategic directions, including accelerating elements of the post-earthquake recovery not fully funded previously. She said the city council was pleased the Government made a commitment to hold an inquiry into the Earthquake Commission, and to work with the Canterbury District Health Board and other agencies to address mental health. “I also want to pay tribute to Hon Nicky Wagner, who stepped into the role just months before the election. She achieved a lot in a short time and I wish her well,” Ms Dalziel said. •Megan Woods’ column, p23

Crack down on roading contractors „„ By Bridget Rutherford STRICTER ROAD maintenance standards and GPS tracking of contractors are now being used to improve the quality of the city’s roads and footpaths. The city council has implemented a new system to monitor the work of three new contractors which cover the 1600km of road around the city. The contractors, City Care, Higgins and HEB, took over last month. City council road maintenance manager Mark Pinner said the new system meant there were stricter standards for contractors, the quality of their work, and how quickly it was done. For example, a pothole reported on a high volume road would need to be fixed within a day, while one on a lower volume route would be within two days, he said. If the contractor continued to fail to meet the time restrictions imposed across all maintenance tasks, they would be paid less, he said. “If they fail any one item on any given month, when they do it the next month, the deduction occurs.”

POOR: Roading contractors now have to meet stricter standards for maintenance in a bid to improve the condition of the city’s roads. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

The changes come after city councillors raised the issue of falling maintenance levels across the city earlier this year, saying it was “failing spectacularly” to keep the city maintained and the number of complaints down. At the time, they said there

was not enough data to show what was being done and what was not. Mr Pinner said the new system was about making sure the city council got the best value for money, and it provided better services for ratepayers.

He said the new system also meant the city council could track contractor movements. “All vehicles have GPS trackers plotting where they are, and we can see how quickly they’ve responded. We’ll be upping our game in terms of auditing,” he said. “We’re going to be out in the field a lot more, supervising this work.” When ratepayers called the city council to report something that needed fixing, the request would also go Aaron Keown directly to the contractor, he said. “It’s a big step and, more importantly, it has improved focus on our key performance indicators and performance targets we set the contractor.” City councillor Aaron Keown said the new system was a way of being “proactive, rather than reactive”. He said a similar system was being developed for parks maintenance as well. The current contract for Banks Peninsula is due to expire in 2020.

From Thursday 9 November Airways New Zealand, the Board of Airline Representatives New Zealand (BARNZ), Christchurch Airport and New Southern Sky will run a 12-month flight paths trial, which will involve approximately 25% of arrivals (landings) into Christchurch. The trial will gather data to be used in the progressive upgrade from procedures based on radars to a network guided by satellites. The new navigation procedures are more accurate and allow for shorter, more direct routes, as well as more efficient take-offs and landings. Collectively, they reduce fuel burn, airport and airspace congestion, aircraft emissions and noise impacts on communities.

I’m sowwy Mr Wabbit „„ By Sophie Cornish RABBITS ON the Anzac Drive, New Brighton and Travis Rds roundabouts could be culled or caught and released elsewhere. The New Zealand Transport Agency is yet to make a decision on their future. However, an NZTA spokeswoman said the highway maintenance team is putting in place a rabbit control operation over the coming weeks. “In the meantime, we encourage people to take their safety responsibilities and that of the other drivers on this busy road seriously and concentrate on the road and safe driving,” she said. “People should not be venturing on to the traffic island for their own safety and the safety of other drivers.” About 20 black rabbits have been spotted at the busy roundabouts. Some motorists posted their concerns on the People’s Independent Republic of New Brighton Facebook page about people wanting to view the rabbits. The concerns raised were about motorists driving slowly to look at them and others parking up and crossing the road with children to get to the roundabouts.

BUNNIES: Several options are being considered to deal with the rabbits on some of the city’s roundabouts.

Transport for Christchurch posted a video on its Facebook page of the rabbits with a safety message. “It is not a good idea to take (children) across the road onto the roundabout,” the post said. “We all know how unpredictable young children can be when over-excited, this could also

now being made in bright new premises Whichever way you can imagine glass being used creatively in your home, AJ Creative Glass can make it happen.

For the team, it is more fun than work, and all say they love seeing the end results, along with the clients’ reactions.

From splash-backs in your kitchen to kitchen bench tops, showers, bath surrounds, mirrors and fire hearths or walls – in plain colours to harmonise with your décor, or with any design you would like – the creative team at AJ Creative Glass, have the skills and experience to produce stunning and unique results.

Six weeks ago, the business shifted from Fitzgerald Avenue to 413 Tuam Street, (on the corner of Saxon St) where many of their glass works are displayed in a ‘real life’ setting in the new showroom that has been set up like a home.

Now in its eighth year, the family-run AJ Creative Glass, now also known as AS Design, is owned and operated by Andrew and Alona Skelton. Their company is made up of family, all experienced in their own areas – painter Jay, installer Nat, sandblaster Josh, and Trina front line in the office/ showroom, and all trained in other areas as well.

You can browse round the showroom and get ideas, and at the same time, watch the glass and work being crafted in the workshop. “The possibilities for incorporating glass into the home are endless,” Alona says. “Clients can have imagery such as photos put on to the glass. This is printed on, so it’s permanent. Or they can come up with any design they desire, and we will produce it for them. For painted glass we use Resene paints, which are mixed by Resene in the client’s choice of colour. AJ Creative Glass and Resene both give a 10-year warranty on their products. “Clients have control of their design

from start to finish,” Alona says, “and we encourage that, as it is their home and you should love what you live with.” The glass items can be shipped anywhere across New Zealand, with the company also having facilities in Auckland for measure and installation. “We are now looking at more avenues for using glass in the home. For example, we are upcycling furniture by adding painted and sandblasted glass to items and bringing them back to life.” To see many of the ways glass can be used creatively, call into their new showroom at 413 Tuam St, with plenty of off-street parking, phone 338 3733. Check out their website, www.ajcreativeglass. co.nz or ‘like’ them on Facebook. Every now and then you can also catch the AJ Creative team at the Christchurch Home Show where they display samples of their glass creations.

News Stopping fire on the ice

„„ By Andrew King SPECIALIST FIRE investigator Mark Thomas has always wanted to go to Antarctica. Now, three months before he retires, he will step foot on the frozen continent to evaluate fire protection, suppression and emergency evacuation plans at Scott Base. Antarctica New Zealand has requested the inspection to make sure it is up to the same standard as regulations in New Zealand, Mr Thomas said. The Christchurch investigator, along with Fire and Emergency New Zealand senior fire engineer Paul Richards and a representative from the fire protection industry, will spend seven days on the ice looking at ways to improve evacuation plans and how fires are dealt with. “It is an interesting place with some unique challenges. Depending on the time of the year, you can’t just have people running outside. Sometimes the weather out there is more dangerous than the fire,” Mr Thomas said.

Punch costs Canty prop $10,000 „„ By Rob Kidd A PROMISING Canterbury rugby player and former weightlifting world champion has been ordered to pay a student $10,000 after a brawl. Joel Nikoli Hintz, 21, pleaded guilty to a charge of injuring by unlawful act when he appeared before the Dunedin District Court yesterday. In August, the big front-rower was named in the Canterbury squad which successfully defended the Ranfurly Shield in two pre-season games against Wanganui and Mid-Canterbury. He played for the champion Hawkins Trophy Lincoln University side. But hanging over him during those matches was the prospect of a conviction that could limit his future sporting endeavours. On April 4, Hintz and friends went to Dunedin as part of their course at Lincoln University. They were socialising at a student party in Queen St. The defendant saw two men wrestling in the backyard of the property. ‘’Without warning he punched the victim once in the mouth with a closed fist,’’ a police summary said.

IN COURT: Canterbury prop Joel Hintz has been ordered to pay $10,000 after injuring a man at a student party. ​

Counsel Anne Stevens said her client had not attacked the man completely out of the blue, as court documents suggested. ‘’He genuinely thought he was helping someone, but he misread the situation,’’ she said. Hintz told police he thought the men were fighting, and as he tried to separate them, the victim threw a punch at him to which he reacted. However, the injured man denied that was the case.

The victim – an Australian man who was in the country studying, and also played rugby – suffered damage to an incisor tooth, which caused the tooth to die. He required a titanium implant and a false tooth to be fitted, Sergeant Chris George said. The estimated cost of the dental work was $12,000. The figure surprised Mrs Stevens, who had previously

been informed of a smaller sum. A final cost would only be known in March next year, the court heard. Judge John Macdonald first indicated the sentencing should be adjourned for the issue to be clarified but was later persuaded to continue. Mrs Stevens said Hintz had $5000 available for the victim but could borrow more. He would suffer significantly with a conviction on his record, she said, through the inevitable hurdles it would place for overseas travel. As well as rugby, Hintz had also tasted success in weightlifting when he went to the world championships in Johannesburg in 2014 as a teenager. He blitzed the competition and set a record in his weight class, according to reports at the time. Judge Macdonald acknowledged the defendant was ‘’a man of promise’’ and the conviction was the first blemish on his record. Hintz was ordered to pay the victim $10,000 (half now, half in a month) as well as court costs of $130. - Otago Daily Times

It could be rugby’s version of mate v mate „„ By Andrew King TWO FORMER New Brighton players could face each other on the international rugby stage. Phil Burleigh has been named in the wider Scotland squad while his good mate Ryan Crotty has made the All Black centre position his own. The duo spent plenty of time together growing up, playing through the grades at New Brighton and in the same first XV side at Shirley Boys’ High during the 2004 and 2005 seasons.

Now there is a chance they could line up against each other during the end of year tour when the All Blacks play Scotland on November 18 at Murrayfield. In another New Brighton connection, Kieron Fonotia has been selected at centre for Manu Samoa for the test against Scotland on Saturday at Murrayfield. Coincidentally, Fonotia was also in the same Shirley first XV team in 2005 with Burleigh and Crotty. The Scottish team has not yet been named but Burleigh is unlikely to face Fonotia, his father Wayne Burleigh told The Star yesterday. Mr Burleigh said if you told him five years ago a Crotty and Burleigh match-up would happen, he would have said ‘you’re crazy.’ “We are pinching ourselves about the fact it could happen. It would be a dream come true if he could play Ryan,” he said. Both have played each other at Super Rugby and provincial level. “They are really good mates. After one game, they were still on the field after half an hour chatting away,” Mr Burleigh

said. Crotty’s father Steve Crotty and Mr Burleigh have been mates for years and even flatted together “many years ago” on Marine Pde and also played rugby in the same New Brighton team during the 80s. “It is a special occasion for both families,” Mr Crotty said. “We know exactly what they are going through after hearing about the selection. We have been through it and we know how proud they will be,” he said. Burleigh joined Edinburgh Rugby on a two-year deal in the summer of 2014 from the Highlanders and extended his contract in 2016 for another two. His time spent playing rugby in Scotland saw him eligible for selection in the national side. He does have Scottish heritage with his great-grandmother born in Aberdeen, but the requirement for entry into the national side cuts off at the grandparents. Shirley head of rugby John Fox said they were all incredibly talented, but they had to work for it. “They all put in the hard work to get to where they are. They are great examples to the up-and-coming kids in rugby,” he said. •More sport, pages 46-47

Our People Green voice in Government Eugenie Sage

Eugenie Sage is one of four Green Party MPs to hold ministerial portfolios in the new Government.​ Bridget Rutherford spoke to her about politics and living in Diamond Harbour So you’re the new minister of conservation, minister of land information and associate minister for the environment. How does that feel? I’m really delighted and humbled to have all three. The election campaign and aftermath had been quite noisy – there was a lot we found out at the same time as the rest of New Zealand when the Rt. Hon Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters announced it. Then, 10min later, we had a party teleconference to actually agree to go into Government. I was very pleasantly surprised. Being involved in negotiations, I was incredibly proud of the way the Green Party organised to have that massive teleconference with delegates to make the decision we’d be part of the new Government. There were a lot of discussions considering it is historic; it’s the first time the Greens have been in Parliament in our 21 years. It was an intensive effort by all three parties to examine each other’s policies, look at where common ground was, and prioritise. Did you expect Mr Peters to make the decision he did? No, I didn’t know which way it would go. What will your new ministerial positions consist of? We’ve got a biodiversity crisis in New Zealand. About 3000 species are at risk of extinction. We need to do much better in protecting native plants and animals and the places they live so these species can thrive. We’ve got an international responsibility to do that because so many are only here in New Zealand. Our natural landscapes, wildlife and special places around Aotearoa are vitally important to tourism – they are what bring tourists here and market our

product overseas. The Green Party campaigned for a change of Government to make that ‘100% Pure’ image real – to give it some integrity. We’ve got a real responsibility to deliver on that promise. Does that bring pressure? Yes, but it is exciting, though, because voters have given us a mandate. What’s your favourite animal? The bellbird I hear at home because of their call, the kea and the robust grasshopper in the Mackenzie Basin. It’s grey so it’s difficult to see. We’ve got an amazing insect fauna in New Zealand that people tend to overlook. I like the longfin eel because they’ve got an incredible life story. They can live to 80-years-old. They live in Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere then they migrate and swim offshore to Tonga where they spawn and die. Then the glass eels drift back through the current and come back to New Zealand. It is an astonishing life cycle. We’ve got a responsibility to protect them, and that’s another of the priorities, particularly making sure the Treaty of Waitangi is properly implemented through the management of things like forestry, fisheries and waterways. What do you like to do in your spare time? I like walking, I do a bit of mountain biking on back roads, and even just going from home in Diamond Harbour around to Lyttelton, then catching the ferry back across. I like going up onto the Port Hills. I used to do a lot of tramping, which I haven’t had much time for recently. I love the high country in the South Island like the upper Rakaia, Ashburton Lakes, Arthur’s Pass and Mt White. They are extraordinary

spaces – that’s what makes my heart sing. For many, it’s walking along the beach looking out to sea. Making sure all kids get the opportunity to grow up with nature, that’s what inspired me. I grew up in Auckland, with three siblings, and we used to play a lot in the outdoors. I think back to summer holidays at Rotorua Lakes and we were able to go off early and play and wouldn’t come back until dinner at night. For families that can afford it, there’s still that opportunity. But there are kids who haven’t been to the beach in New Zealand, and that’s a tragedy. What brought you to Christchurch? Family commitments – my partner Richard was down here. I also studied at Canterbury University and in Auckland.

When did you first get into politics? I was involved in student politics at university. I edited Craccum, the student magazine, at the University of Auckland. I got into environmental protesting; I protested against the first McDonald’s in New Zealand on Queen St. I did some work for the precursor to the Department of Conservation on the West Coast. I was exposed to the destruction of native forest for logging – these magnificent rimu forests near Hokitika. I was just in tears wandering through these areas, seeing nature’s cathedral being utterly trashed. I worked for Forest and Bird between the mid-1990s through to 2010 at the time of the Timberlands beech logging scheme. A Labour Gov-

ernment stopped the scheme and transferred the land to DOC and it has been invaluable since. It just showed the power of public mobilisation to protect our rain forest. What are you most proud of? That and the work for Forest and Bird using the Resource Management Act to have stronger controls on indigenous vegetation clearance and the work on tenure reviews. What were you doing before you got into politics? I did a law and history degree at Auckland, and then studied journalism at Canterbury University. The law degree has been really useful in not being scared of legislation. What do you think of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern? Jacinda Ardern will be an outstanding prime minister through her leadership skills, analytical skills and her empathy. It’s totally genuine. Why did you move to Diamond Harbour? When I stood for Environment Canterbury, I said I would move in if elected. In 2010, as it was coming up to elections, the former Minister for the Environment Nick Smith and Local Government Minister Rodney Hide decided to axe 14 elected councillors and installed commissioners. The only time I have felt welcome in ECan since then was when the people occupied the building in September. That’s a priority, restoring democracy. What do you like about living there? It’s on the base of Mt Herbert, and being in the harbour you’re basically looking across to dramatic cliffs. It’s our volcanic heritage. And it’s the people in the community, they support each other. It’s the same in Lyttelton. Do you have any pets? I used to have two cats, but that was about 10 years ago. Living in a place with bellbirds and kereru, I appreciate seeing and hearing them.

CPC-led China Offers Compass for Bridging Global Governance Deficit The Communist Party of China (CPC) has held its most important meeting in five years to chart the future course of the country at a time when the world is beset with challenges and disorder. Globalization has been facing hurdles while protectionism and populism are rising. Nearly a decade after the 2008 global financial crisis, the world economy is still grappling with uncertain long-term outlooks. Global confidence in a strong future growth has yet to find a solid foundation.

of any target to double GDP will ensure the country can focus on implementing its new development concepts of innovation, coordination, greening, opening up and inclusiveness. To restructure its economy for better quality growth, China has introduced a series of supply-side structural reform measures. They are reducing excess inventories, cutting overcapacity, deleveraging, lowering costs for businesses, and streamlining bureaucracy.

capacity of nations so that they have the fundamentals to grow their economies. Most of the countries along the Belt and Road have significant development need -- electricity and power, transport infrastructure, IT connectivity, etc. -- which China can contribute greatly to fulfilling. The Belt and Road Initiative also helps safeguard regional peace. It is one of China’s tools to help eradicate the root causes of terrorism and other extremist elements and build a safer world. As Xi has reiterated, development holds the master key to solving all problems. One should be counting all the benefits of stability, with less tension, less crises and less terrorism. Improving the post-war global financial system is critical to promoting global justice and balanced development. In this regard, China has played a pioneering role, pushing for quota reforms in the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

Against the backdrop of violence in Iraq and Syria, although Islamic State militants are losing, lone-wolf attacks have emerged as the new face of terrorism. The age of pervasive social media has made it unprecedentedly convenient for extremist groups to recruit, plot and strike. These symptoms all point to a graver crisis -- the ever widening global deficit in peace, governance and development. A Contrasting Map In contrast, China, under the leadership of the CPC, is trying to map out a road leading to a better world by promoting not only its own development but also that of other countries. The commitment has been reiterated in the report Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered at the opening of the 19th CPC National Congress in Beijing. For Xi, one of the top priorities is to ensure a robust growth of the Chinese economy, which matters to the rest of the world as well. Since the reform and opening up, the Chinese economy has expanded much faster than the rest of the world, partly due to China’s three-step development strategy aiming to quadruple the 1980 gross national output by the end of the 20th century. China’s economy grew at an average annual rate of 9.8 percent between 1979 and 2012, dwarfing the global growth of 2.8 percent in the same period. Over the past decade, China has been widely regarded as a leading economic locomotive that has, along with other economic powerhouses, pulled a lackluster global economy up a steep hill. According to data released by China’s National Bureau of Statistics, China’s average contribution to global growth from 2013 to 2016 was about 30 percent, the largest among all countries. Since 2012, the country has shown greater tolerance of lower growth rates in the pursuit of a better structure, quality and efficiency. It lowered the annual GDP growth target from 7.5 percent for 2012-2014 to 6.5 percent this year. Average annual growth between 2013 and 2016 slowed to 7.2 percent, still much higher than 2.6 percent average global growth and the 4 percent growth of developing economies.

China’s socialist modernization will be “basically realized” from 2020 to 2035. As Xi mentioned, from 2035 to the middle of the century, China will become a modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious and beautiful. With more focus on quality and efficiency than on speed, China will march toward those goals and bring about happiness to the people, and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation. The past five years have also witnessed China’s persistent drive to promote social justice and equality by reducing poverty. China has lifted an average of 13 million people out of poverty every year since 2012, according to official data. And over the past four decades, more than 700 million Chinese have been freed from poverty, accounting for 70 percent of the global efforts in the same period. Overseas, China has reached out to the international community with a set of proposals on how to better maintain global security and peace and spur development. Community of Shared Future In such a highly interdependent world, where the fates of all nations, big or small, rich or poor, are tightly intertwined, Xi has proposed that all nations come together to build a community of shared future for mankind. The world has seen China significantly increase its contributions in global economic governance, international peacekeeping, climate change, global health, energy security and reshaping multilateral institutions. Even though its per capita income is not as high as those of advanced nations, China is already providing the world with public goods such as sending peacekeepers, fighting piracy, and sending medical missions to really poor countries to take care of the people who cannot afford to have good medical treatment. China’s active participation in global economic cooperation and support for open and free global trade has benefited itself and all other countries. Xi’s report called for efforts to make economic globalization more open, inclusive and balanced so that its benefits are shared by all. Against the backdrop of rising protectionism, China remains committed to promoting global sustainable development, coming up with benefit-sharing initiatives and offering more public goods to the world.

China’s economy has been transitioning from a phase of rapid growth to a stage of high-quality development. This shows that China will prioritize the quality of development rather than fast economic expansion. The attitude is in line with the central leadership’s judgment in 2014 that China’s economy had entered a “new normal”, featuring medium-high growth rather than fast growth, upgrading of economic structure and innovation. Stepping into the new era, China’s principal contradiction is between unbalanced and inadequate development and the people’s ever-growing needs for a better life, according to Xi’s report. Although economic growth at certain level will still be necessary, freeing itself from any speed constraint will make it easier for China to balance its development goals. No mention

In the past five years, China has also steadfastly promoted peaceful and diplomatic means to solve many of the global crises like the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue. China is a staunch supporter of the United Nations (UN) peacekeeping missions and a provider of international humanitarian relief. It is the top contributor of UN peacekeepers and the secondlargest contributor to peacekeeping funds.

Xi’s vision led to the Belt and Road Initiative, which aims to better connect countries and regions that account for more than 60 percent of the world’s population and 30 percent of the global gross domestic product, and to strengthen the industrial

The world has also witnessed China’s important leadership role in climate change. China was one of the first to sign the Paris Agreement, and has reaffirmed its commitment to fighting global warming after the United States announced its decision in June to withdraw from the accord. President Xi said in his report that China has taken a driver’s seat in international cooperation on climate change and become an important participant, contributor, and torchbearer in the global endeavor for ecological civilization. The country more than met its carbon emission reduction goals last year, and pledged a package of 3.1 billion U.S. dollars to the South-South Cooperation Fund on Climate Change for developing countries. China, sticking with this path, makes it more likely that eventually even the United States will come back to the consensus on climate change. Xi once said China’s ongoing reforms have sailed into uncharted “deep waters” where what is left is mostly the hard nuts to crack. The situation is the same with the rest of the world, if not worse. Yet that should not be an excuse to turn back or turn against each other. Rather, it should be the reason for all nations to join hands and eliminate the deficit in global governance. As many foreign leaders and observers have pointed out, China has set an instructive example in this regard. In these turbulent times, the 19th National Congress of the CPC gives a strong message of unity, cohesion and determination to fight for peace, sustainable development and the creation of harmonious world societies. If a world of shared and sustainable prosperity, fair growth and balanced power is to ever exist, China will have a leading and indispensable role in it.

New minster builds regeneration relationships IT’S BEEN great to have hit the ground running with my new ministerial portfolios in Christchurch. Last week I met with Mayor Lianne Dalziel and Government officials working in the regeneration effort, which is helping build a good picture of where the work is at and what we can do to get things moving. The relationship with the mayors and councils is very important to me, as it’s crucial we are working in the same direction for the good of the city, and the region. Briefings from the officials

working in the regeneration space have helped give me a better sense of where the individual projects are at. I’m very keen to look at how we can make more progress in the central city and in other key areas like the red zone. That includes how we can

help those still struggling with insurance claims several years after the earthquakes, and relooking at anchor projects that have stalled like the Convention Centre precinct and the Metro Sports Facility.    It was also great to see my colleagues, Prime Minister

Jacinda Ardern and Health Minister David Clark visiting Christchurch last week. Our Government has got the backs of the people of Christchurch. While the previous Government took its eye off the ball when it came to the city, the regeneration will be a true priority for the Labour-led Government I am part of. Jacinda gave some great support to the pupils at Hornby High School during their exams, while David visited the Canterbury District Health Board to start to rebuild a relationship that has suffered

Guide to racing, agriculture and fashion With Cup and Show Week just days away, Sarla Donovan outlines what’s ahead

IT’S THE week where the country comes to town – and it all starts this weekend. The annual New Zealand Cup and Show Week returns to Christchurch on Saturday, with a week of racing, agriculture and fashion. The event attracts about 200,000 people every year, and injects $30 million into the local economy. New Zealand Cup and Show Week begins with Guineas Day at Riccarton Park on Saturday. The Al Basti Equiworld New Zealand 2000 Guineas Day will see the best three-year-olds race in the first of two two guineas races over the carnival. That’s followed on Tuesday by the Christchurch Casino New Zealand Trotting Cup Day at Addington – a spectacle of fashion, food and racing. Musician Mitch James will be playing on the Lindauer Lawn Rooftop, while fashionistas compete for the coveted Best Dressed Man and Woman titles.

The three-day Canterbury A & P Show also opens its gates from 8am on Wednesday, delighting young and old with annual rituals like wood-chopping, dog trials, sheep shearing and the fabulous grand parade on Friday. The annual agricultural show has been held every year since 1862; the first ever show took place in a paddock near Latimer Square.

Friday, November 17, is the province’s Anniversary Day when thousands of Cantabrians take the opportunity to attend the A & P Show or pack a picnic and relax under the trees at Addington’s Show Day races.

Big Saturday of Highland Games „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE HORORATA Highland Games will be held on one of the most important days commemorated in modern history – Armistice Day. The games, known as one of the largest Scottish festivals to take place in the Southern Hemisphere, will be held at the Hororata Domain on Saturday. Event manager Cindy Driscoll said the Hororata Community Trust felt strongly about acknowledging Armistice Day. She said a lot of people do not know about its importance and the games offer a good platform for people to learn more about it. “In New Zealand, we put a lot of focus on Anzac Day and the other significant events all get wrapped into that,” Mrs Driscoll said. Armistice Day is commemorated each year to mark the end of World War 1. After four years, the war came to an end with the signing of the armistice between Germany and the Allied Powers on November 11, 1918. On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the guns fell silent. The opening of the Hororata

PHOTO: MURRAY IRWIN ​ Highland Games has been brought forward with a remembrance of the day to be held before the chieftain’s welcoming ceremony. It is to be led by the HororataMalvern branch of the Christchurch RSA with a bugler playing the Last Post. More than 60 children from Hororata, Glentunnel, Sheffield, Springfield and Kirwee primary schools will perform a kapa haka as part of the ceremony.

Selwyn MP Amy Adams has been named chieftain for the games. Ms Adams will be the first woman chieftain. The event was created in 2011 from the community’s desire to take charge of its own future following the devastation suffered during the Canterbury earthquakes. This year marks the seventh annual running of the event. It attracts more than 500

competitors who will compete in highland dancing, piping and drumming, tug of war, highland spin, small bore shooting, amateur heavy athletics and the Oceania heavyweight championship. Mrs Driscoll said pre-sales for the games are well up on previous years, competition numbers are at capacity and more than 200 volunteers will be involved. A record crowd of 10,000 attended the games last year.

11am – Armistice Day Remembrance 11.10am – Chieftain welcome ceremony 1.30pm – The Hororata pie eating competition. Enter at pie cart by 12.30pm 2.30pm – The Selwyn Times kilted mile - register by 1:30pm at the Selwyn Times stand 3pm – Closing ceremony 4pm – Massed bands march past and prize-giving Mrs Driscoll said this event would not be able to take place without support from the community. The Hororata Highland Games is a huge day out, with something to do right from the time the gates open at 9am until the closing ceremony at 4pm. •There is free parking on-site.

QUESTION My garden has a hedge of olive trees. Last year I harvested some of the olive fruits and processed them. They were tasty but very small. What can I do to make the olive fruit fleshier?

Today’s winning question came from Maree. Congratulations!

ANSWER

z

In a perfect olive season (e.g early rainfall followed by a hot, dry, late summer then an early autumn), it is possible your olives may be marginally larger. But the answer to the size of olives lies in the selection of a particular variety. If your olives fruit heavily and regularly, then do retain the existing trees regardless of the size of the fruit. Not all olive varieties crop well in differing parts of New Zealand. Therefore, there is no guarantee that known larger fruiting olive varieties will produce heavy crops in your area anyway. Talk to other olive growers in your local area and/or experiment with a few additional trees of other varieties. Remember, fertilising your trees will not produce larger fruit, rather an enormous amount of vegetative growth.

Hedging your bets „„ By Sue Witteman I HAVE many favourite things, but near the top of my list would be the hedge. It is one of the most useful horticultural things you can plant for not only does it divide your garden neatly, it also provides sanctuary for bird and beast, acts as a windbreak, provides privacy, produces fruit, flower or foliage for floral work, and adds a colour dollop of green, red, grey or purple to your landscape. I have, however, often noticed an initial reluctance to the idea of having hedges as there is the belief

they are a huge amount of work. True you have to plant them, and true you have to look after them, as you do with any plant, but they give back so much more than they ask of you. Apart from trees, they are the most important structural element you can have in your garden and they just grow better with time, adding an elegance that is hard to achieve any other way. Begin with ground preparation. As is often the case with gardening, it’s the effort you put into the ‘unseen’ that can make all the difference to the final outcome. To avoid losing money on a sad little

hedge that never got going, set aside a realistic amount of time to do it – then double how long you think it will take. By doing this you minimise the taking of short cuts and the building of possible resentment. Sort out where the hedge is going to go – use string lines or dazzle to get this right – and spray the area if needed (you may have to do this more than once). It really pays to get the soil as weed-free as possible, particularly in the case of perennial weeds, as the hedge is going to be there for a long time and it INTRICATE: Layers of escallonia and buxus hedging add structure to a formal area. The cones are variegated gets progressively harder to weed amongst it. And then start digging. buxus.

ASPARAGUS WITH AVOCADO SALSA

HOW TO COOK BARBECUE GRILLED BUTTERFLIED WHOLE CHICKEN

Directions

Ingredients

Ingredients

2 bunches Asparagus 1 Avocado 1 Lemon 1 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil 1 Pepper 1⅓ cups Dried cranberries ½ cup Walnuts ¼ cup Parsley 1 to taste Salt & freshly ground pepper

1 whole butterflied chicken 1 to taste salt & freshly ground pepper Barbecue sauce Directions Preheat grill to medium. Get surface temperature to about 200 deg C. Clean and oil well. Clean the chicken if you desire and pat dry. Cut the backbone out of the chicken with sharp kitchen scissors. You could use a knife, but the scissors are much safer and work great. With a large knife, give the breastbone a large nick in the front of the chicken to help the bird lay flat. Rinse the inside of the bird out, trim any loose fat and extra skin. Pat dry again. Give the bird a good sprinkle of salt and pepper. You could use any seasoning you want here. Place skin down on the grill. Flip after you get a nice browning on the skin after about 12-15min.

Give the chicken a good brushing of barbecue sauce. Grill another 3-4min until the sauce is browning well.

Strawberries 250g Asparagus Vine Sweet Capsicums Classic Temptations Tomatoes 500g NZ Tangelos

To make the salsa, combine avocado, juice of the lemon, oil, diced pepper (yellow), dried cranberries, walnuts (toasted) and parsley. Season with salt and pepper and toss well. Cook asparagus in plenty of boiling, salted water for 2min or until just tender to the bite. Drain asparagus and arrange on a serving plate. Scatter salsa over asparagus to serve.

Total grilling on the second side should take 20-25min. Let set for 5 minutes then cut and serve.

Cirkopolis more than just a circus „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding CIRKOPOLIS, the theatrical circus show taking the world by storm, is to make its New Zealand debut at the Isaac Theatre Royal next week. Canadian-based troupe Cirque Éloize has stepped away from its traditional roots of pure circus to blend a dazzling mixture of theatre and dance into its highlyacclaimed show. Set in a dull metropolis-themed factory, small glimpses of colour slowly begin to seep through as artists break away from monotony before the show bursts into a sparkling party. The first artist to expose a flash of colour is Rosita Hendry when she removes her grey coat revealing a red dress. “Gradually. we see a glimpse of colour and by the end of the show everybody is completely broken out of this structured world . . . it is quite fun to have that transition,” she said. Audiences will see Hendry, 27, perform one of her specialities – the cyr wheel. The only Kiwi artist to perform in the show, she grew up in Auckland and is the eldest of seven children. Hendry describes the cast as

DAZZLING: The magic of Cirkopolis will be brought to life at the Isaac Theatre Royal from Tuesday to Sunday.

“like a little family”; a multicultural one with performers from countries including Canada, England and Japan. “We have a common language and we all know circus,” she said. Hendry said she had not come across a lot of Kiwis in her time travelling overseas and she is fortunate to have made it where she is. The tour of Cirkopolis has already taken her around the world to Paris, London, Australia and Germany. Training to become a performer has been a lifelong process for Hendry who first started gymnastics when she was four before moving into dance and music. Following her schooling, she moved to Australia to train at

the National Institute of Circus Arts where she graduated with a Diploma in Circus Arts. She then moved to Canada to train at Ecole Nationale de Cirque where she graduated earlier this year as a specialist in aerial rope with a minor in cyr wheel. Hendry said she is excited to travel to Christchurch, having only been here a few times for gymnastics competitions. She said she is hoping to run workshops for the circus community while she is here as a way of giving back to the friends she had made in the city. •Cirkopolis will run from Tuesday to Sunday at the Isaac Theatre Royal.

Actress opens up about eating disorder „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding JANE LEONARD was 13-yearsold when she first started comparing her body weight to girls her own age. Trained in ballet from a young age, she was startled to notice her body maturing earlier than the other dancers in her class. “Ballet, as you know, you want to be slim and tiny . . . I was always struggling with the fact I was a lot bigger than the other girls. I think that may have triggered something in my mind,” she said. The Riccarton resident, now 24, would often find herself looking in the mirror only to see a magnified, large version staring back. Before long, Leonard’s body dysmorphia escalated and she found herself diagnosed with bulimia – a serious eating disorder characterised by binge eating followed by purging. A long journey of intuitive eating saw Leonard clinically overcome her battle by the age of 16. But now Leonard, an emerging performer in the city’s theatre scene, is sharing her story in a bid to make others aware they are not alone in their struggle

with eating disorders. Leonard’s blog, Haere Mai Apple Pie, details her journey and how she overcame her eating disorder. In a metaphoric style, Leonard describes her own mind as a busy household filled with characters including depression – Dee-Dee for short – Happy Happiness, and Evelyn Eating Disorder. In Leonard’s story, Evelyn appears as a beautiful and perfect individual looking to rent. But following her move into the metaphoric household, she negatively changes its character before Leonard kicks her out. Leonard said there needs to

be a platform where it was okay to talk about mental health, particularly for performing artists. “All mental disorders are really common among performing artists, but especially in musical theatre . . . that kind of cookiecutter, fairy tale image, that is often what an audience member wants to see. They want to see perfection,” she said. Leonard feels strongly about letting young girls know it is okay to be a performer and have curves and muscles. Since posting her blog, Leonard said she’s had a positive response and has inspired others to share their own mental health journeys. While her career in the arts has been emotionally and financially stressful, Leonard said she has been blessed with the

opportunities she’s had. “I am grateful for all the stuff I have been through because I wouldn’t be the same if it hadn’t been for my experiences,” she said. Leonard will star in the alternating role of Elphaba in Showbiz Christchurch’s production of Wicked in March. She will also feature in the ensemble and play the understudy role of Velma Kelly in The Court Theatre’s production of Chicago. For the past year, Leonard has featured as the face of the promo images for the show. “That is also a bit like body confidence – I am on a poster in lingerie,” she said. •To read Leonard’s blog, go to https://haeremaiapplepie. wordpress.com

O Canada – taking in the capital city „„ By Mike Yardley I’VE JUST enjoyed my first foray to Ottawa, Canada, which like all great capitals, is a weddingcake city, studded with trafficstopping statement architecture and grand patriotic confections. But don’t assume Ottawa groans under the stuffy weight of bureaucracy. She’s incredibly photogenic, carpeted in green spaces, with a gregarious spirit. Interestingly, Queen Victoria chose Ottawa to be the national capital, a geographic compromise to neutralise the competing rivalries of Montreal and Toronto for top-dog status. The inner-core of Ottawa boasts some strikingly distinctive neighbourhoods, like Wellington West, a foodie favourite crammed with cafes, bakeries and specialty stores like Emulsify, where you’ll find more olive oils and balsamic vinegars than you can throw a salad at. The Glebe is another extra-lively pocket of Ottawa with some signature specialty stores, like the 24 Hour Bagel Shop. But your first port of call should be Justin Trudeau’s joint, Parliament Hill. The centrepiece is the gargantuan gothic-revival building called Centre Block. This 1865 masterpiece is a show-

stopper, with gargoyles, coppertopped turrets and sweeping archways. The interior is equally lavish in a Harry Potter kind of way. At the heart of the building is the soaring Peace Tower. You can see Canada’s prime minister in action every day when Parliament is sitting in the House of Commons at question time. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, as are the free guided tours. You’ll need a ticket for the tours, which are distributed across the street from the Hill Centre daily from 9am. Plus after dark, the sprawling façade of Centre Block transforms into a trippy canvas for the nightly sound-and-light show, trumpeting pure Canadian pride. Like all good capitals, Ottawa is awash with museums, many of which are free to enter in birthday year. If you’re an Arctic buff, don’t miss the new Canada Goose Arctic Gallery at the Museum of Nature. Two cores of real permafrost are included in this substantial showcase of the Arctic region, its diversity and undeniable global importance. Shop and nosh at Byward Market, the city’s venerable mercantile mecca, founded in the early 19th century. Hello maple syrup!

HISTORIC HOTEL: Chateau Laurier is the toast of Ottawa, built in French-gothic style by the Grand Trunk Railway Company. GETTING THERE:

The market also boasts some old-school cafes and bakeries, including Boulangerie Moulin de Provence. Groaning with sugary and savoury delights, the bakery was a hit with President Obama when he popped in several years ago. In his honour, an entire bay is dedicated to the Obama cookies, which are a perennial hot-seller. But, when in Ottawa, sweet treats don’t get any better than downing a Beaver Tail. This signature dish is a sizzling slab of fried dough, slathered in decadent toppings like gooey chocolate and cinnamon. They’re sinfully good. I’m a walkover for historic hotels and Ottawa boasts a star specimen. The Chateau Laurier is the toast of the town, built in French-gothic chateau style by the Grand Trunk Railway Company at the dawn of rail’s golden age more than a century ago. The hotel was scheduled to open to much fanfare in late April, 1912, but the railway boss, Charles Melville, died on the Titanic en-route to the grand

opening. He never got to see the completed masterpiece he had commissioned. Chateau Laurier overlooks the Ottawa Locks, a sequence of steep, step-like locks that mark the northern end of the 200km-long Rideau Canal. Completed in 1832, it’s the oldest continuously used canal in North America. Today, it’s a watery recreational paradise, which also doubles as the world’s largest ice-skating rink. Come winter, 8km of the canal is transformed into a groomed ice rink, roughly the size of nearly 100 Olympicsized ice hockey rinks. A quirky Ottawa diversion is the vast underground nuclear bunker. Built during the Cold War, this subterranean chamber, spanning four floors, was designed to house the government brass in the event of an attack. It could accommodate 300 people, alongside a fully functional radio studio and the Bank of Canada vault. Now transformed into a Cold War museum, you can wander through the facility, which is packed with chilling insights into just how grave the risk of apocalypse was perceived by Canadian officials. Wherever you choose to stay in Ottawa, I locked in my accommodation through Hotels.com, which was fast, efficient and packed with great deals. Hotels.com Rewards

•I booked my domestic flights in Canada through an award-winning travel search engine, Skyscanner New Zealand (skyscanner.co.nz). It’s a fast and trustworthy way to find cheap flights. The more than 60 million global travellers using Skyscanner each month can’t be wrong. It compares hundreds of airlines across millions of routes and is an excellent way to score the best available deals, no matter where you want to go. Skyscanner also has price-saving features like ‘Price Alerts’ which notify you when the airfares increase or decrease. What I particularly like about Skyscanner is that when I found the flights I wanted and clicked to book, Skyscanner links you directly to the airline or travel agent so there’s no hidden charges or fees. In addition to sharppriced flights, Skyscanner also offers accommodation and vehicle hire deals too. www. skyscanner.co.nz

gives you one free night after 10 nights booked – which you can bank for future holidays. Rewards members and mobile app users also enjoy exclusive access to secret prices. I found the Hotels.com mobile app to be a simple, fast and secure way to book your perfect hotel, on the go.

Diabetes and World Arthritis aid Diabetes gets amazing Day feedback! Tuesday, 14 November Since using the Aircycle the swelling in my legs and feet have decreased dramatically, my ulcerated toe has started to heal and all the pain from my toe has gone. The toes on my other foot have stopped tingling and getting sore on the tips and they are back to a healthy pink colour. I am now able to walk much further without pain.”- Richard UK. • “My daughter works in a diabetes clinic and she recommends the Air Cycle to prevent or alleviate varicose veins in the leg” -Harry, Auckland • “ Within 2 weeks of using the Aircycle my ulcer was starting to heal and in 6 weeks it was completely healed. My physio said it was because I was exercising more. It’s good to be able to do something whilst sitting, especially when it’s so easy yet effective.”- Jane, Toowomba • “The Aircycle is even better than the information says. The pain in my knees has gone and although I use a walker I don’t need it around the house anymore. I can move more freely and have much less pain in both my hands and feet.

Diabetes is the largest and fastest growing chronic condition in New Zealand.1 Over 240,000 people have been diagnosed with diabetes in New Zealand and it is thought there are another 100,000 people with diabetes who are unaware they have the disease.1 These figures along with this year’s World Diabetes Day focus on women provide a timely reminder for healthcare professionals to come together and ensure all patients especially women at risk of diabetes or living with diabetes have access to the necessary medicines and technologies, education and information to improve their outcomes in treatment. Proper injection technique is an often-forgotten part of the overall care for people needing to inject their diabetes medication. To further support healthcare professionals to work more

closely with their local networks and improve the management of diabetes with women, BD has developed a range of materials detailing the Golden Rules of Injection Technique to facilitate discussions with patients on correct injection technique, including the use of short 4mm (or 5mm) pen needles.2 This World Diabetes Day, BD is urging all healthcare professionals to keep up-todate with their knowledge and training in order to provide the best possible care to those living with diabetes. References 1. Ministry of Health, Diabetes, http:// www.health.govt.nz/your-health/conditionsandtreatments/diseases-and-illnesses/ diabetes (accessed 26 October 2017) 2. World Health Organisation, Diabetes Fact Sheet, http://www.who.int/ mediacentre/ factsheets/fs312/en/ (accessed 20 October 2017).

The 5 Golden Rules of injection technique for people with diabetes Findings from a worldwide survey on injection technique reveal that a vast majority of people reliant on injectable diabetes medication are not injecting their medication correctly.1 The survey was conducted among 13,289 self-injecting people participating from 42 countries.1 The results were reviewed and analysed by over 180 diabetes experts from 54 countries, resulting in the ‘Golden Rules of Injection Technique’ being published. These Golden Rules have been developed to help people better manage their diabetes, in consultation with their healthcare professional.1 This Diabetes Awareness Month, BD - a global medical technology company that is advancing the world of health by improving medical discovery, diagnostics and the delivery of care - is highlighting correct injection technique is just as critical in diabetes care as a person’s diabetes medication, nutrition and physical activity.

Here are the 5 Golden Rules developed by health care professionals to help people better manage their diabetes and improve their treatment outcomes:1 1. Always inject medication into the healthy fatty layer under your skin, avoiding the muscle1 2. 4mm pen needles, inserted at 90 degrees are recommended for all adults and children1 3. Inject diabetes medication into areas on the abdomen, thighs and buttocks1 4. Check injection sites for lumps and bumps, and avoid using these areas as injection sites1 5. Rotate injection sites correctly.2 Always consult your healthcare professional regarding treatment of your Diabetes. References 1. Frid AH, Kreugel G, Grassi G et al. Mayo Clin Proc.

Lipid & Diabetes Research Group Established in the mid-1980’s, the Lipid and Diabetes Research Group is involved in both Academic Projects and Pharmaceutical Research Trials. Research participants attend our purpose-built modern unit (free-parking provided on-site), near the main hospital campus. Clinical Professor of Medicine, Russell Scott, an internationallyrenowned Diabetes and Cholesterol Specialist leads our team of 12 research-trained Doctors, Nurses, Coordinators, Laboratory, and Administrative staff. Our research focuses primarily on medicines that are being developed. Traditionally our emphasis has been cholesterol and diabetic health, however our extensive experience has enabled us to expand into other areas of health which are also of current National and International importance. These include: obesity, heart failure, elderly health, coronary artery disease, kidney failure, and vaccines. Although early-stage studies are often less than 3 months, the larger global studies can run for 5-8 years, providing valuable information about long-term health effects and safety. Study participants undergo health check-ups before entering a study, and are monitored throughout their participation. We communicate with other health providers about their patient’s involvement in our studies. We are always open to hearing from new people who have an interest in knowing more, or participating in research. All questions welcome! Our contact details are in the accompanying advert.

Wool it for

vulnerable feet The Wool-it story began in 2012 when the prospect of a reasonably impromptu 680km walk across the Camino in Spain was looking like it had potential to be a month long ‘blister-fest’ for the feet. Determined to avoid the fate of so many whose experience is ruined by painful blisters , Katey Lane discovered that natural wool wrapped around hotspots and vulnerable areas would offer the protection needed to avoid damaged feet. The benefits of Wool-it became apparent very quickly as day after day Katey and her walking partner encountered Camino pilgrims with ‘broken feet’ - painful blisters, open sores and pressure areas, while they carried on without a blister between them. Noticing a growing interest in blister prevention from a number of different sectors, Katey took her brand ‘Wool-it’ to the market. The first sales trip started in Queenstown where two retailers purchased the entire stock on Day 1. Within two weeks there were 50 South Island retailers on board as pharmacies, sports shops, outdoor centres, trekking guides and podiatrists started to embrace the simplicity and effectiveness of Wool-it. The healthcare market is steadily

growing with particular interest from those whose feet are most at risk such as diabetics, EB sufferers and the elderly. A lot of pain and suffering can be avoided by placing Wool-it in strategic locations where you know you are likely to have a problem. In a number of instances, Woolit has enabled clients to participate in sports and activities that would otherwise have risked damage to feet. Podiatrists like the concept of 100% natural wool being so light, providing a cushion from pressure on already injured feet/toes and the means to prevent further damage. Wool-it also breathes around the skin while absorbing moisture. Wool-it doesn’t need scissors or adhesives. Simply aerate the wool and place around the hotspot or pack Wool-it in-between toes, once it felts into your sock, it stays there until you remove it! Clients are delighted to tell us how Wool-it has saved the day on long walks, playing sport or breaking in new shoes. “I purchased some wool back in March as I was taking part in the Oxfam Trail Walker NZ (I did the 100km walk). Your wool was a life/foot saver. I used it for about 90% of the walk and I couldn’t

During at the end of the walk I only had one blister (where there was no wool on my feet) and my feet were in pretty good condition.

Two Kennel NZ Cup Heat Domination It was the Dave and Jean Fahey plus Craig Roberts show at the Addington Raceway on Thursday evening, as between them they trained four of the five Christchurch Casino New Zealand Cup heat winners. They also had a liberal sprinkling of heat minor placings. It was a mixed bag of heat results, which with a couple of notable exceptions, saw the bulk of the favoured contenders making it through to the next Wednesday’s semiTAB Favourite for the Christchurch Casino New final rounds. Actually Zealand Cup Avenger Bale with trainer Craig Roberts owing to a couple of the NZ Cup prelude qualifiers The leading trio was followed in by Hard filling qualifying positions, plus the stand Questions (Gary Cleeve), Opawa Cheviot down of a qualifier, meant the first six (Steve and Bonnie Evans) and Epic greyhounds in each heat (one is a reserve) Dream (Ray Adcock).

in after him was Sader Nation (Cleeve), Penalty Bale (Roberts) and Opawa Norris (Robin Wales). The Fahey’s struck again in the third heat when they produced the multiple Group race winner Opawa Shackley fresh up to deliver a spectacular freewheeling 30.46s victory after jumping from trap five. It sure was great to see her back on the track doing what she does best – winning races. It was also great see the bold return to the races by Tom Tee for Adcock. He has had his recent issues and he would have derived immense benefit from his outing when finishing 3.5 lengths behind Opawa Shackley. Rover Bale (Roberts) was next home, three quarters of length behind although unfortunately he won’t return after he copped a stand down. Filling the remaining qualifying positions from this heat was Cactus Jack (Fahey’s), Nozzno Fear (Ashley Bradshaw) and Runway Bono (Fahey’s). Robin Wales broke up the two kennel domination when he produced Opawa Jimbo to deliver a bold pace making 30.26s win in the fourth NZ Cup heat. The $36.20 shot jumped smartly from trap eight which set up his victory. Closing stylishly on him late was Allen Hadrian for Roberts and he was gallant when going under by a three quarter length margin. Boldly stalking the leading pair throughout was Crotty for Ashley Bradshaw and he was rewarded with his third placing a further six lengths back. Arriving in behind them was Quistis Bale (Roberts) then Must Be Rusty (John

McInerney) and sixth placed Mazu (Fahey’s). There was a real sensation in this heat where the defending NZ Cup title holder American Warrior (Fahey’s) was severely checked on numerous occasions, which unfortunately saw him exiting from this year’s edition. The fireworks really ignited in the fifth and final NZ Cup heat. Ride Ain’t Over (Roberts) and Shantui (Fahey’s) drew the inside two traps – both have shown a preference for racing wider out on the track. So much for that theory - this pair of classy chasers came away from the traps fairly humming and they dictated terms to their heat rivals with a display of sheer power chasing. It was all about Ride Ain’t Over as he drew clear to deliver his potent 29.95s heat win. Shantui maintained his strong gallop arriving home five lengths behind while it was his kennelmate Opawa Timo who extended nicely during the run home to wind up just three quarters of a length back in third. Filling the remaining qualifying positions from the final heat was Harry Fields (Adcock), Panel Beater (Fahey’s) and Helski Bale (Roberts). Joining all of those qualifiers from the heats in the semis are another four greyhounds who were exempted from the heats owing to their recent NZ Cup Prelude placings. Dirk Bale (Roberts), Cosmic Odette (McInerney), Nature’s Gent (Angela Turnwald) and Cristiane Cyborg (Hayley Mullane) will be lining up in those semis on Wednesday.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Experienced team committed to customer service

If experience counts in motor vehicle servicing and repairs, then Beach Road Tyre & Auto must be a top choice for motorists needing work done on their vehicle. Owner of the business, Nick Coultas, has 27 years’ experience at Beach Road and he has a staff of 10, all of whom are highly experienced with a wealth of knowledge. They repair and service all types of vehicle, including those under warranty. “If your vehicle is still under warranty and needs something done, you don’t need

to take it to the dealer – you can bring it in to us. We have the latest equipment to service all late-model vehicles, including five computerised scanners,” Nick says. These days they are servicing hybrid and even full electric vehicles as well, he says. Servicing and re-gassing air-conditioning systems is a specialty at Beach Road Tyre & Auto Centre, while, as the name suggests, tyres are a key part of the business. They carry a huge range of tyres for all makes and models of cars, including four-wheel

drives, and also do wheel alignments, which ensure tyres last longer and save fuel. “If you want it right, see us,” Nick says. Now that later-model vehicles require a WOF once every 12 months rather than every six months, it is important for drivers to keep an eye on their tyres for wear in between warrants and have them replaced if they are getting worn, Nick says. “We are seeing a lot of very dangerous tyres, so if you’re unsure how to check them call in and see us.”

From WOFs to full servicing, and everything in between, the experienced team at Beach Road Tyre & Auto does it all. And as Nick says: “If you’re happy with our service tell others. If you’re not tell us. We want to look after our customers.” Beach Road Tyre & Auto, 91 Beach Road, North Beach, phone 383 2870. Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 8am-5pm and Saturday 8am-12 noon.

Mazda CX-3 refresh adds to appeal „„ By Ross Kiddie WHEN MAZDA launched its small sport utility vehicle in New Zealand in 2015, a fellow motoring writer and I agreed the CX-3 was one of the most significant cars to enter the market here. We also both agreed it was of the most enjoyable drives of the time. As history as served to prove, the CX-3 hasn’t won the New Zealand Motoring Writers’ Car of the Year Award, but to my way of thinking I can’t understand why not. The CX-3 is a seriously good piece of kit, it stands out in every area, all combining to produce a pleasurable driving experience. Bang on cue, Mazda has given it a facelift and upgrade, and the new model has got an even greater grasp on me, I simply in love the CX-3. Sure, it isn’t big, but it is an adequate five-seater and it is functional. The rear load space allows for up to 231-litres of cargo (1141-litres with the rear seats folded flat), and even though the rear seating area has copped some criticism for lack of space, I firmly believe if you are a young family with a couple of youngsters in tow, it is still vastly capable. The CX-3 has just undergone a fairly major cosmetic refresh, most of the changes are incorporated into the interior and that makes you even more at ease once you are in the driver’s seat. There is also the addition of more functions in the i-Activesense suite of safety gear, G-Vectoring control has been included which monitors the driver’s steering and throttle inputs to promote a safer ride and greater handling benefits. It also incorporates emergency avoidance functions. The CX-3 also gets a re-calibration of the power steering system and improvements in noise, vibration and harshness within the ride. Together, the changes make the CX-3 an even better car without disturbing the concept which appeals so much to me, and my colleague. There’s also been a realignment of models; sadly the fabulous 2-litre diesel has been dropped, so all models now are petrol powered. There’s a GLX,

MAZDA CX-3: Facelift and upgrade for popular SUV.

GSX and GSX with leather and, as in the test car’s case, a Limited model which tops the range at $40,195. The entry-level model is listed and $31,395 while, interestingly, there’s a GSX model with four-wheeldrive which comes in at $37,295. The range-topper wouldn’t be the car for me but I would be tempted by the non-leather GSX, and it doesn’t miss out on much in terms of specification. • Price – Mazda CX-3 Ltd, $40,195 • Dimensions – Length, 4275mm; width, 1765mm; height, 1535mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive, 1998cc, 109kW, 192Nm, sixspeed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 9sec • Fuel usage – 6.1l/100km

However, the Limited is there for those who like leather and all the bells and whistles, and the CX-3 in this form is a pampered drive with its heated seats, electric everything and all the safety gear you would find on the modern SUV. Part of what makes the CX-3, and its stablemates, so special that they have a traditional driveline, the engine is a naturallyaspirated 2-litre unit and it drives through a conventional six-speed automatic gearbox. The point I’m making is that there are no surprises, you just get in and a drive it, there are no quirks or anything that needs to become familiar, it is very orthodox. Mazda claim 109kW and 192Nm from the twincamshaft, 16-valve engine. Even though peak power is delivered high in the rev band at 6000rpm, the point of maximum torque is low at 2800rpm. Mazda is a

sheer genius at engineering engine management protocols so that the engine is far from flighty, yet working solidly the torque curve which not only initiates keen acceleration (0-100km/h in 9sec) but also miserly fuel usage. The engine is also rated with a 6.1-litre per 100km (46mpg) combined cycle economy figure which sits well with the 8l/100km (36mpg) dash panel readout during my time with the car. It also sits at 4.5l/100km (63mpg) at 100km/h on the highway, the engine working over very relaxed at just 2050rpm. I took the test car west to Windwhistle and Terrace Downs. It cruises quietly on the highway and there is solid engine response when highway overtakes need to be completed, along with a satisfying feel beneath the accelerator. The CX-3 also handles purposefully thanks to the new power steering tuning. Pushed quickly into a corner, then CX-3 stays balanced with minimal body roll and direct turn-in. The suspension is a fully independent type (front struts/ rear multiple link), that allows freedom of movement for the wheels, while firmish spring and damper rates provide a sporty, involving sensation. Not that the suspension compromises interior comfort, the CX-3 has all the attributes which buyers demand from the modern SUV. As I’ve alluded to, I’m greatly taken with the CX-3, not just because it is a car which does little wrong, but I’m buoyed by the build quality Mazda in recent years has been engineering into its entire model line up. The company has shifted the goal posts in terms of value and driving feel, the line-up is most certainly going from strength to strength.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY Making it easier to learn how to teach English anywhere in the world From 2018, Ara will offer the internationally recognised University of Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) full-time, part time and through blended delivery. It will be the only centre in New Zealand offering the programme in all three options. Julie van Dyk, CELTA tutor and programme leader says graduates of the Ara course have a high rate of employment in English language teaching. “Eighty three percent of students who completed the course at Ara last year are now working in the industry, in China, France, New Zealand, Japan and Hong Kong.” Van Dyk says CELTA students develop an understanding of the key principles and practices of effective English language teaching. “You’ll teach two different classes for your assessed teaching practice, with students from a wide range of language backgrounds.” With the choice of three delivery modes, students can choose the option that best suits their needs. The fulltime option is a four-week intensive course, held Monday to Friday from 9am to 5.30pm, and will be offered in March and September 2018. “This option is ideal for people who want to complete the qualification in the shortest possible time and move into employment or go overseas afterwards,” van Dyk says. The part-time course takes 11 weeks and

comprises 12-15 hours’ face-to-face study and a minimum of 10 hours’ independent study each week. It’s held on Saturdays from 9am to 4.30pm, and Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5.30pm to 9pm. Van Dyk says this option is popular with people who have family or work commitments and who want to study over a longer period of time. The blended option combines online selfdirected study with face-to-face teaching practice and observations, over 15 weeks. “This option is ideal if you prefer more flexible learning, or if you’re based outside Christchurch,” van Dyk says. “You can study this course from anywhere in New Zealand, as you only need to attend on-site classes at Ara for a part of the course.” For more information on course dates and the application process, visit ara.ac.nz.

Sport CONTENDERS: Tom Alexander in front of Jack Milligan in race two at Pukekohe on Saturday.

Old friends battle it out on the race track „„ By Gordon Findlater EIGHT years ago Tom Alexander sold Jack Milligan a kart which got him into motor racing Now the two longtime friends are set to battle for the Toyota 86 Championship. Alexander, 23, and Milligan, 21, found themselves duelling at the front of the Tom pack in the Alexander opening round at Pukekohe at the weekend. Racing against each other competitively Jack is somewhat Milligan new to them. However, their history together stretches back to their early teens. Both drivers began their racing careers in karts with Matthew Hamilton at the Kartsport Canterbury race track on Carrs Rd. Milligan, who was 13 at the time, was looking to purchase his first kart.

Alexander had been racing for a few years already and was looking to move up a class. This led to Mulligan buying Alexander’s 100cc Yamaha kart. Although the two grew up racing in different classes, they developed a relationship which saw Mulligan go on to be part of Alexander’s mechanical crew during his first season in the Toyota 86 Championship. “Jack was still racing karts at the time and we needed an extra set of hands to work on the car,” said Alexander. Now the pair will go wheel to wheel for this year’s 86 championship title. “Before round one, I knew that Tom was going to be the guy to beat. He’s won it before and he’s always been a good driver,” said Mulligan. “It’s going to be a good battle throughout the season.” Alexander – who won the 86 championship in 2014-15 and is now based in Auckland – claimed

two wins at the weekend to leave Pukekohe with the championship lead. Milligan is second overall after a win in the opening race and a podium finish. Milligan won the 12-lap opening race on Saturday with Alexander in third. In race two, it was Alexander’s turn to swarm through to the lead in light rain. He was followed home by Milligan who had a strong start to move up the grid after starting in eighth. In race three, Alexander again held off a challenge from Mulligan. On the back straight, Milligan made a bold move to go around the outside of Alexander, who held his line and his lead as Milligan slid onto the grass and ended the race in eighth. The pair will now head to Taupo for the next round in early December where both are expected to feature at the front. “Jack proved last year that he’s got speed. I’d love it if it turns out to be a battle between myself and Jack,” said Alexander.

Record sprint car field at Ruapuna SPEEDWAY FANS are in for a treat on Saturday night at Ruapuna with a record 30 entries in the opening round of the Hydraulink War of the Wings Sprintcar Series. Defending series champion Jamie Duff of Christchurch will go in as favourite. However, last week at Ruapuna’s season opener, he had to play second fiddle to Te Anau’s Daniel Anderson. Ruapuna club president Allan Daly says the prospects of an outstanding race

on Saturday are high, particularly given the talent on offer and the calibre of equipment. “It’s as good as you will see anywhere and it’s amazing that, 10 years ago, there were just six entrants for the South Island championship. The attraction of the series is the $100,000 prize and travel pool,” said Daly. Another local driver who will fancy his chances will be three-time New Zealand modified champion Luke Keegan. He’s in his second season

of sprint car racing and possesses a great race temperament. Keegan is prepared to wait for opportunities and, in the frenetic action which comes with sprint car racing, that is a huge asset. Last Saturday, Keegan timed his run to perfection coming in second behind Anderson in the feature. “The pits will be jam packed and we have had to put in an extra heat race to accommodate the entries. The time trials, which start at 6pm, will sort the heat race groups,” said Daly.

Cricketers choose their school over Canterbury „„ By Gordon Findlater CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High’s top cricketers have been forced to choose between their school or Canterbury due to a calendar logjam caused by next year’s under-19 Cricket World Cup. CBHS will aim to defend their national First XI Cup title in Palmerston North from December 4-8. In recent years, the tournament has been held at Lincoln University, but a change in venue was needed with the under-19 regional tournament being held there from December 4-12. Traditionally, the regional tournament is held a week after the First XI Cup tournament, but its move forward has forced some students from around the country to choose between representing their school or their province. CBHS coach Matt Parr says it was a no-brainer for his students to quickly decide their priorities lay with representing school. Following the regional tournament, New Zealand Cricket will select the national team to play in the under-19 Cricket World Cup. The ICC requires nations

to name their squads by midDecember, which is one reason why the regional tournament was moved forward. Due to the double-up, New Zealand Cricket will now have selectors at both tournaments, ensuring no player is disadvantaged by their choice to represent their school or region. CBHS students Louie Chapman and Mitchell Hay will join up the with the Canterbury team following the tournament in Palmerston North. However, it’s likely several other CBHS students would have made the team as well and their absence will

leave Canterbury under strength. “We’re probably missing out on two players that would have been involved but, at the same time, it’s a great opportunity to give an opportunity to a couple of younger guys,” said Canterbury Cricket performance squad coach Dion Ebrahim. This year’s First XI Cup title will be contested by CBHS, HIBS, Palmerston North Boys’ High, Otago Boys’ High, Tauranga Boys’ College, and Auckland’s Rosmini College. The under-19 Cricket World Cup takes place around New Zealand from January 12 to February 8.

Mates meet on course „„ By Gordon Findlater AFTER LOSING to one of his best mates in the New Zealand amateur golf championship final on Sunday, Tom Parker was quick to get the last laugh on the pool table. Parker, 17, took on Wellington’s Daniel Hiller, 19, in the 36-hole championship final at Russley. Although it was the first time they had been paired up on the golf course over the five-day championship, they were housemates all week. Since 2015, their friendship has seen Hillier stay with Parker when he’s playing in Christchurch while Parker does the same in Wellington. Hillier made a fast start on Sunday as their friendship was put aside on the course. He recorded seven birdies and an eagle through the first 14 holes to jump to an early seven up lead. He eventually went on to win 10 holes up with nine to play. “It was played in really good spirits. There could be worse people to see win it I’m sure,” said Parker. Their competitive streak didn’t end there, though. Pool and table tennis occupy their time off the course and Parker recorded a bitter-sweet victory in his garage before Hiller left for Malaysia to

compete in the Nomura Cup. “We’re normally pretty even on the pool table, but I got him that evening. Maybe he was sympathetic and gave it to me,” Parker joked. After a scratchy start to the tournament, Parker nailed two 6m-plus putts on the 17th and 18th holes in the final round of stroke play to finish 32nd, just allowing him to advance to the final 32 match play elimination round. On his way to the final, Parker defeated Scott Hellier, James Hydes, Oscar Cadenhead and Hayato Miya in match play.

The Best Kept Secrets to Selling Your Home Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the only impression No matter how good the interior of your home looks, buyers have already judged your home before they walk through the door. You never have a second chance to make a first impression. It’s important to make people feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry ways are also important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by putting in a small bench or a vase of freshcut flowers. Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show Your house needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you never know when your buyer is going to walk through the door. You have to be available whenever they want to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little inconvenient, but it will get your house sold. Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part of it is that you’ll probably get 85% of your money back. It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start envisioning their own style. If you have a little money to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why one? Because when people see one highend appliance they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates the kitchen. Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house One of the most important things to do when selling your house is to depersonalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your stuff – put it in storage.

This includes family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes. Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space. Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your money back if you do a huge improvement project before you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles, cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets and clean the grout. Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts of potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody is a dog- or catlover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the impression that your house is not clean. If you’re planning an open home don’t leave your pets around. Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong real estate agent. Make sure you have an agent who is totally informed. They must constantly monitor the multiple listing service (MLS), know what properties are going on the market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find an agent who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one has many tools to get your house sold. Selling Secret #8: Light it up Maximize the light in your home. After location, good light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable. Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets Storage is something every buyer is looking for and can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and cabinets clean and tidy.
