Booms back to catch river rubbish

RIVER CARE groups responsible for the annual Mother of All Clean Up events on the Heathcote River are applauding the city council for reinstating rubbish booms in Woolston. The three groups – AvonHeathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, Ōpāwaho Heathcote River Network and Avon-Ōtākaro Network – lobbied the city council to reintroduce the booms following successful river clean up events in which tonnes of rubbish was collected. The booms will also be placed in the Avon River at Dallington. The booms gather floating debris as it travels downstream from the city. It is then harvested by City Care and sent to landfill. Rubbish booms were previously deployed in this way but were removed following the earthquakes. “Reintroducing the booms will greatly reduce the amount of rubbish ending up along the edges of the rivers and estuary,” said AvonHeathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust co-ordinator Tanya Jenkins. •Turn to page 7

North Avon club dominates BMX

ANYTHING THAT helps the water quality of our rivers has to be applauded. That’s why it’s great news that – finally – booms are back in the Heathcote (and Avon, too) as our page 1 article reveals. The Heathcote boom in Woolston is designed to catch, contain and hold debris that pollutes our waterways until the boys and girls from City Care get there. The reintroduction of the booms post-quake has been because of lobbying from three very worthwhile groups – Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, Ōpāwaho Heathcote River Network and Avon-Ōtākaro Network. itionTheir datE]bid to restore and develop the city’s waterways cannot be underestimated. The people in these groups are tireless workers, who fight tooth and nail for the city’s future. All power to them. - Barry Clarke

The North Avon Christchurch BMX Club had a strong showing with eight top three finishes at the South Island championships in Kyle Park, Hornby.

Cancer survivor cycles with pros By Sarla Donovan AT 73, Rob Dally is looking forward to riding with top New Zealand cycling pros like Jack Bauer and George Bennett. The cancer survivor and keen cyclist is taking part in the Bupa Challenge Tour on Friday – Santos Tour Down Under’s annual mass-participation ride in Adelaide. At the event, recreational cyclists get to ride on the same stage as the world’s top riders on a Union Cycliste Internationale world tour route. The competitors also raise money to help fund cancer research. Mr Dally was diagnosed with prostate cancer seven years ago and had a radical prostatectomy. But he fought through it and has been cancer-free since the early diagnosis operation. He now rides to celebrate this achievement. “I’m keen to ride a stage of the tour that the elites do straight after me and I’m keen to support a good charity,” Mr Dally said. The Halswell resident flew to Adelaide yesterday with his wife Jan as his support crew. He said he was looking forward to meeting other passionate cyclists. Clocking up about

He says cycling is more exciting: “You’re going faster on two wheels – around corners, down hills.” In 2011, he was preparing for a 130km road race and was as fit as he’d ever been, when his surgeon called him in and said he had cancer. “It was pretty awful really . . . pretty sobering.” But he counts himself as one of the lucky ones and credits the experience with changing his thinking. “Do what you want to do today, don’t leave it till tomorrow. Don’t take things or anybody for granted.” Mrs Dally also took up cycling about same time as the cancer diagnosis PARTNERS: Keen cyclists Rob and Jan Dally are heading to an event and now the couple ride and race together. in Adelaide next week where cancer survivor Rob will cycle on the Last year, they same course as some of the world’s best.

Pet dog: I’m not a burglar By Andrew King A FAMILY feared they were in the midst of a potential burglary when they heard a tapping sound on the front door of their Sydenham home at about 4am. The police were called to the Seddon St property on Thursday – but the source of the noise was not as sinister as first feared. The family’s dog was outside wanting to get back in and was tapping on the front door. The family quickly called police back, who were on-route flashing lights and all, to let them know it was their dog. “They were stood down before they got there as she relayed it was her other dog (she has two) doing the tapping,” a police communications spokeswoman said. “The dog was not ‘K9d’ (arrested).” About 5mm of rain fell between 2am and 4am in the city, which could have been a contributing factor to the dog wanting to come inside. It is unclear what the other dog’s involvement in the incident was.

Red zone rabbits spared . . . for now By Bridget Rutherford

Former Linwood league player makes another big splash By Julia Evans FORMER TOP Linwood rugby league player Mike Brown and his daughters found a way to cool off over the holidays. Mr Brown, along with Jaz and Montana (left), 14, were spotted by the Pegasus Post near the

Christchurch Yacht Club and duly played ball for a photo. But Mr Brown said it wouldn’t be a proper summer without loading two of his daughters, a few towels and some food into the car to head off to Moncks Bay. The afternoon out was one last hurrah on his holiday

RABBITS THAT gained quite the audience for living in the middle of busy roundabouts in the red zone have been spared for now. More than 20 rabbits, some of which are black in colour, have been spotted on the roundabout at Anzac Drive, Travis and Frosts Rd, and the junction of Anzac Drive and New Brighton Rd. But they caused traffic concerns, with motorists driving slowly to look at them and others parking and crossing Anzac Drive to get to the roundabout. In November, the New Zealand Transport Agency said the highway maintenance team was looking to put a rabbit control

operation in place to deal with the safety issue. That may have included culling the rabbits, or catching and releasing them elsewhere. The idea sparked outrage, with many saying to leave the bunnies alone. But it appears the bunnies will likely be able to live out their days on their roundabouts. “At this stage the transport agency is not proposing to do anything about the rabbits which are sometimes seen on the state highway roundabouts through Brighton/Burwood,” an NZTA spokeswoman told the Pegasus Post. “We continue to advise people not to be distracted while driving and to put their own and other road users’ safety first.”

New Brighton ANZ to close By Andrew King NEW BRIGHTON residents have been dealt another blow as a second bank announces it will be permanently closing its doors. ANZ on Seaview Rd will amalgamate with The Palms branch in Shirley on January 26, meaning the area will only have one bank left - New Brighton NZ Post & Kiwibank in the Brighton Mall. It comes after Westpac announced last year it will be closing its doors in New Brighton, mid-February. An ANZ spokesman told Star Media a 20 per cent decline in transactions over the past two years at the New Brighton site was the main reason the two branches will join. Christchurch East MP Poto Williams posted the news on her Facebook page, which gained a swift and angry response. One person replied to her post saying: “What can we do as a community do to stop all this, everything is being done behind closed doors, no thoughts to the community at all.” Bin Inn New Brighton owner Nikki Griffin said: “As a business owner that uses ANZ not impressed will look at my

options and haven’t been told by them (sic).” Mrs Williams said it was a blow to a community working hard to get back on its feet. “I have completely lost faith in corporates because they lost faith in us,” she said. “We are all working so hard to get the area back on its feet but this is out of line of where

we are heading and a complete lack of faith in the suburb of New Brighton.” New Brighton Business and Landowners Association manager Paul Lonsdale said it was a sad decision. “On one hand, you can understand it but you have to look at the demographics of the area. There are a lot of elderly people out here


and some of them are not that mobile,” he said. An ANZ spokesman said most New Brighton customers already use other branches. It will install a SmartATM where customers can make deposits, withdrawals and do account transfers. “Our staff, the equivalent of 2.5 full-time staff, have all

Rehoming unwanted and With the SPCA and other organisations rehoming hundreds of animals this summer, reporter Emily O’Connell checks out some of the potential pets desperately in need of some love and attention PASCAL THE cat is looking for a new home. And if she gets one, the nineyear-old will become one of hundreds of cats rehomed by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Canterbury this summer. Pascal is an affectionate and loving animal, according to SPCA southern region general manager Barry Helem. But the furry feline has been without a home for two months. Mr Helem said Pascal was found lost in Ashburton and was taken to a vet clinic as she had an injured tongue and some dental

issues. She was collected by the SPCA ambulance and had a few teeth removed as well as other treatments to help her heal. Pascal then went to a foster home where her foster parents said she loved “rolling around, chilling out in front of the fan

and sleeping on the pillows.” Mr Helem said the perfect home for Pascal would be one with no young children, “so she can live out her golden years calmly being the centre of attention.” “She has two disclaimers – one regarding the teeth which

she had removed and another regarding a historic soft tissue injury to her right hip,” he said. Mr Helem said SPCA Canterbury has had a very high adoption rate during summer but also a very high influx of animals coming into its care. “Our adoptions for the

This total is an 11 per cent increase over the same period last year,” he said. Pascal is one of about 20 cats SPCA Canterbury is currently trying to rehome. The organisation has 321 animals on-site at present and 139 animals in foster homes. Adoption fees for an adult cat like Pascal are $150, kittens $250, adult dogs $250, puppies $350 and rabbits $50. In a bid to continue rehoming animals, SPCA Canterbury has a Facebook page which profiles different animals in their care. The page has more than 22,000 followers. SPCA is a charity which helps protect animals that are sick, injured, lost, abused or simply abandoned. Every year, the 40 SPCA centres across the country receive more than 45,000 animals through their doors and 14,000 animal welfare complaints. •Visit https://www.

Booms back to collect Heathcote River trash HOME NEEDED: Three-week-olds Arnold (above) and Andrea both need permanent homes. PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER

•From page 1 Said Ms Jenkins: “Of course the best solution would be if members of the public didn’t discard rubbish into streets and gutters in the first place, as much of it ends up in the rivers.” Said Helene Mautner of the Ōpāwaho Heathcote River Network: “The rivers and estuary are real assets of the city, we need to look after them so we can enjoy them locally and showcase them to our visitors.”

Another Mother of All Clean Up event is being planned for May 18 with the continuing support of City Care. “Hopefully, with the booms back on the river, we will now see a significant reduction in rubbish downstream,” says Ms Jenkins. Spokesman for AvonŌtākaro Network Evan Smith said: “Floating rubbish presents a real navigation hazard to recreational users on the river and the rubbish along the banks is a real eyesore that

diminishes the amenity value of riverside trails. The booms are placed in bends of the rivers in such a way that they don’t impede navigation, a win-win for all.” The initiative has the support of the Christchurch West Melton Zone Committee, Environment Canterbury and Department of Conservation. Conservation service volunteers will also be involved from next year. •Jenkins’ birds nest, page 8 BIG HELP: River care groups responsible for the annual Mother of All Clean Up events are applauding the city council for reinstating rubbish booms along the Heathcote River.

News Bird’s candy wrapper nest By Sarla Donovan MOST PEOPLE expect bird nests to be made of twigs, leaves, moss and grass. Not snickers bar and peppermint sweet wrappers – or fibreglass pink batts. But that’s exactly what Clydesdale St, Woolston, resident Tanya Jenkins found in her garden last week. A blackbird’s nest came down in the wind and to Ms Jenkins’ surprise, it was Tanya Jenkins mostly made of plastic. She said when she pulled the nest apart she could distinctly see the different types of plastic used. The Avon Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust co-ordinator has been “pulling nests” for years. “It’s a strange hobby I know, but I’m just so impressed with the building and design technique of birds. The time they spend and skills they have is amazing. But this particular nest

amazed me as the natural building material used was reduced to only about 15 per cent, with the rest being plastic and pink and wool batts materials.”

Birds seemed to be adapting nest-building to use more rubbish and litter, she said, but wasn’t sure what the explanation was.

“Bird life adjusting to city life? Birds being awesome recyclers? Birds getting lazy? I have no answers, but it is interesting to see.”

Burnside-based preschool and nursery, The Enchanted Garden, was handed over to new owner-operator Debbie Taylor in October.

Co-Q10 reduces all Centuries old folk remedy causes of mortality supports good health! by 50% Researchers were amazed with the results of how beneficial a natural nutrient Coenzyme- Q10 (CoQ10) is to the human body. Co-Q10 is a natural enzyme in the body’s cells that is essential for cell function, energy and survival. The Heart, Liver, Kidneys and Pancreas require large amounts of Co-Q10 to function well. In a recent multi country double blind trial on the possible benefits of CoQ10 to protect against heart failure, 420 patients with severe heart failure were given CoQ10 or a placebo and then followed for two years. It was found to the amazement of the researchers the patients who received the Co-Q10 had a 50% reduction in an adverse cardiovascular event or death compared to the placebo patients. Not only this but the patients on the CoQ10 had a 50% reduction in death not only from cardiovascular events but from all causes. According to lead study author Professor Mortensen this study is the first in over a decade to show a natural nutrient can reduce heart failure mortality and CoQ10 should be added as a standard treatment for anyone with cardiovascular complaints. It is known that CoQ10 levels decrease in the heart muscle of patients with heart failure as severity worsens. Statin drugs

are used to treat many patients with cardiovascular problems but these drugs also reduce CoQ10 levels further in the body. Symptoms of low CoQ10 in the body can be low energy and endurance, muscle pain, poor memory and concentration and poor heart function or heart failure. CoQ10 levels are known to decrease as we age and many researchers believe keeping our levels up of this vital nutrient may help prevent many chronic diseases including cancer. Co-Q10 is available as a natural supplement to support good health. Further information is available from the Natural Health Advisers, and Medical Herbalists at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: (03) 388-5757.

Co-Q10 Vital for Good Health SUPERIoR ADVANCED NEW FoRMULA

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an array of powerful health benefits. It is none other than the popular apple cider vinegar or ACV. Since the time of Hippocrates – the “Father of Medicine” – ACV has been renowned for its curative properties. In his popular book “ARTHRITIS and FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis reports how he found that Vermonters who regularly consumed ACV and Honey had excellent health with many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even when well into their eighties. He also noted the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be remarkable with many patients reporting almost total relief after taking a course of the mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted calcium deposits and helped the body control calcium use. He also noted that Vermonters who consumed ACV and H around meal time had excellent blood pressure and circulation. The reason he found was that protein foods thickened the blood and vinegar thinned it. As the blood thickens it cannot pass as easily and quickly through the blood vessels and capillaries. This poor blood flow would reduce cellular health by limiting nutrients to the cells as well as waste elimination from the cells. To prevent cell damage the body naturally increases blood pressure but this puts more stress on the blood vessels, organs and heart. Having ACV and H with meals will help prevent protein raising the blood

Co-Q10 is a nutrient that is absolutely vital to every cell to perform its function & live. It is essential for energy production, muscle function & required in sufficient amounts for the heart to keep beating. A deficiency will affect all organs & sufficient Co-Q10 is considered an important factor in reducing the chances of chronic disease & reduced life expectancy. Co-Q10 is a fat soluble nutrient & its absorption is enhanced when it is in a base of fatty acids. Our advanced new formula contains 300mg of naturally fermented Co-Q10 in a base of fish oil & Bioperine (Black Pepper Extract) for added benefits & to enhance absorption.

pressure. It also contributes to a feeling of greater well-being because the thinner blood circulates quickly and more easily through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found regular consumption of CV and H to be an excellent health tonic with numerous health attributes. ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all the goodness of the apple in a form that is readily accepted by the body. Good health starts with good digestion and assimilation of nutrients. ACV taken before food will stimulate and promote healthy digestion and assimilation of vital nutrients for good health. A well-functioning digestive system helps prevent disease by neutralising any toxic substances that enter the body.

Christchurch Girls

2018 Pathways at Linwood College Education is about the well-being of the whole person and how developmentally positive experiences enrich our students’ understanding of who they are and broaden their outlook. They nurture students’ classroom focus by contextualising their learning and sowing the seeds of positive ambition. Linwood College believes in a ‘pathwayed curriculum’. This means the school, students and families knowing:

Last year our school was 140 years old and in that 140 year history we have never doubted what we stand for. We know what we are. From our beginnings in 1877 we have only ever been a purpose built school for girls. When our school first opened on that September day in 1877 who could have envisaged 140 years later: three site moves, a number of earthquakes, 13 principals and a fabulous new building? In that time we have seen the move from ink pens to ball points, from blackboards to whiteboards to laptops. It makes you wonder what the future holds in store and how can you prepare for what may or may not be? At Christchurch Girls’ High School we work hard to build capacity in our students so that they are able to embrace the future with confidence. Students strive to pursue personal excellence on the sporting field, in cultural activities, through community service and

academically. They do so with energy and enthusiasm, supported by an experienced, professional and caring staff. We are traditional in aspects such as uniform, courtesy and the high expectations we have of our students but innovative in the wide range of opportunities we provide both inside and outside the classroom. Hence our vision: Embrace Tradition, Embrace Innovation, Embrace Excellence. Education takes us from darkness into light.

It will also include our learning commons, Whare, student cafe and wellness resources, staffroom, and administration. We all know of course that a school is much more than its buildings, and a huge amount of work has gone into adapting how we cause learning. The Manaiakalani pedagogy (Learn Create Share), and the use of digital devices (Chromebooks) is having a huge effect on student achievement, with achievement surpassing growth and improvement nationally by a significant margin. We ask all students to come to school equipped with a Chromebook, apart from your time, there is little better you can invest in your child’s education than the purchase of that Chromebook. Junior students are increasingly approaching their learning via real world contexts (whether it’s the arts or business, or project based learning designed to improve our community in real ways). This is contributing to improved engagement and improved learning. We are a very values based school, and our students repeatedly show that they have a heart for our values, for their community, and for what is right. What an amazing year we are going to have.

Tony visited the school to share the process of making a movie from developing the idea, writing the script, casting the actors and adding the special effects. The children were in awe listening to him and asked some fantastic questions about the journey of making the movie. The children from the Ruru and Kuaka teams then got to sit inside the sleigh that was used in the actual movie. Even Principal John Bockett got in on the action by sitting inside the sleigh and making it go faster than the speed of light by pressing the red button on the dashboard of the sleigh! The children had so much fun and loved enjoying the magic of a ‘Kiwi Christmas’.

Shirley Intermediate When Shirley Intermediate School’s two swimming pools were earthquake damaged the SIS Board of Trustees, having found no likely help sources, undertook costly repairs. Now, after six summers their pupils continue to reap the benefits. In addition to swimming almost daily, pupils can also join the endurance club. As few SIS pupils attend swim clubs, It is significant whenever the 1km continuous swimming certificate is awarded. In addition to hosting Banks Avenue and Shirley Primary schools (who can use the

15m pool), and Shirley Boys High School sports groups, the school has hosted the St Albans Swimming Club – formerly based at the now-closed Edgeware Pool for several years. Principal, Geoff Siave said the pools provide achievement opportunities and fun - for pupils, local schools, and the community. “Learning to swim is achievable, and we’’re also building community connections.” Children need to see connections between school and real life.

your way back to it As we return to our normal daily routines after the holidays you may begin to find the odd ache or pain creeping in.


his is a good indicator from our bodies, that the holiday routine was somewhat different. Perhaps you sit a lot for work and you were on the go or, you are normally more active and the holiday break was more sedentary. Either way the sooner you pay attention to these signals the easier it will be to deal with it. So what can you do to ward off pain and stiffness and boost your energy and alertness? 10 simple stretching exercises at your desk that will release tension from head to toe. They take only a few minutes. Set the alarm on your cell phone or computer to go off every hour to remind you it’s time to get up and stretch. Just stand up and sit down - no hands If you stand up and sit down (over and over) without using your hands it can be a challenge, do it while you’re on the phone; no one will know. Shrug your shoulders - to release the neck and shoulders Inhale deeply and shrug your shoulders, lifting them high up to your ears. Hold. Release and drop. Repeat three times. Loosen the hands with air circles Clench both fists, stretching both hands


out in front of you. Make circles in the air, first in one direction, to the count of ten. Then reverse the circles. Shake out the hands. Point your fingers - good for hands, wrist, and forearms

Stretch your left hand out in front of you, pointing fingers toward the floor. Use your right hand to increase the stretch, pushing your fingers down and toward the body. Be gentle do the same with the other hand. Now stretch your left hand out straight in front, wrist bent, with fingers pointing skyward. Use your right hand to increase the stretch, pulling the fingers back toward your body. Do the same on the other side. Release the upper body with a torso twist Inhale and as you exhale, turn to the right and grab the back of your chair with your right hand, and grab the arm of the chair with your left. With eyes level, use your grasp on the chair to help twist your torso around as far to the back of the room as possible. Hold the twist and let your eyes continue the stretch see how far around the room you can peer. Slowly come back to facing forward. Repeat on the other side. Do leg extensions Grab the seat of your chair to brace yourself
