Schools targeted by vandals

Brittany Spencer

Several Richmond schools have been targeted by vandals over the summer holidays, leaving principals frustrated at the “acts of stupidity”. Waimea College, Garin College and Salisbury School have been subject to graffiti and attempted arson over the school holidays and the culprits have yet to be caught.

Waimea principal Scott Haines says Waimea College has already been hit three times. “The latest was graffiti on our school gates but we had an attempted arson event some stage between Christmas and New Year’s where a small fire was set up against one of the buildings in the heart of the school, that’s the most concerning of the three.” He says he is really disappointed and frus-

around us. It’s no surprise that the schools aren’t funded at the level they need to be and each of these events just takes money away from students in classrooms and detracts from our ability to make a difference for the kids. “These acts of stupidity end up costing the school but ultimately it ends up costing

Local riders give rodeo a crack There was plenty to yeehah about at Saturday’s Richmond Rodeo at the Richmond A and P Showgrounds with nine of the 10 cowboys in the open bull ride getting unceremoniously dumped and lots of bucking good action in the bareback and saddle bronc events. But there was much more to the rodeo than dusty cowboys and bucking bulls and broncs. There was some finesse and glamour as well, with the barrel racers showing speed and skill and Australian Rodeo Queen Latoya Ward enchanting the crowd of around 1700. “The open bulls were tough,” Richmond Rodeo Club secretary

“We have pretty much stayed around home, haven’t been on holiday at all. We bought them a swimming pool for Christmas so it’s been swimming all the time.”

“We’ve been to Bluff, Queenstown, Te Anau, Milford Sound, you name it we’ve been there. It’s been a South Island road trip.”

“We’ve done lot’s of walks, we’ve been to Lake Rotoiti and the kids have walked to Apple Tree Bay, so we’ve done lots of day trips.”

“Camping at Quinney’s Bush. We went for five or six days, it’s becoming a tradition.”

Local riders give rodeo a crack FROM PAGE 1 Tina Angus-Phyn says. “They were well-rested after the Canterbury Rodeo was cancelled and Ernie Rika was the only rider who could stay on.” A group of greenhorn barrel racers from Nelson fared a lot better, all making slow but steady debuts. “I lost a stirrup before the first barrel but that just made it more interesting,” Angela Cotton says. “I got around alright and all the barrels stayed up.” Jo Rushbrooke also had a clear round although admits she was a little worried when her horse thought he was still in the showjumping ring and lined up the second barrel. “He was going straight at it – I thought he was going to try and jump it,” Jo says. Lynley Wilson was also relieved to have a clear run after her

Linda Cotton, Kim Charles and Felicty Hart also made a successful transition from showjumping to barrel racing. Tina says Latoya, who was a special guest at the rodeo, was a big hit. “Everyone loved her. She

low, five, won the Miss Cowgirl Pre-school and Mr Cowboy Primary School respectively. Unfortunately, there was also some unwanted drama with one cowboy breaking his leg when the bull he was sitting on charged at the gates in the mounting pen. The rider was thrown from the bull as soon as the gates opened and managed to limp to safety. The bull was also injured and had to be put down which Tina says is a rare occurrence at the Richmond Rodeo. James Pinfold won the bare back bronc, Paul Robinson, Graeme Gannon and Ross Dowling were first equal in the saddle bronc, Justine Davis won the barrel racing and Len Mackey and Nye Harborne won the teaming roping. Tina says it was an “brilliant crowd, which stayed “right to the end”.

FROM PAGE 1 students, it’s not cool.” All three incidents were photographed and reported to the police and the school’s insurance company but no one has been found responsible. Staff have considered and dismissed the possibility that the incidents were caused by students. “We don’t believe that these events have been caused by Waimea College students because the events have been quite wide in terms of their distribution,” says Scott. “I understand that a number of schools around the area have suffered this sort of event during the holiday period, Waimea College isn’t being targeted specifically, it’s just a random act of stupidity that is occurring across a number of different campuses.”

Car rolls into river, just misses swimmer Simon Bloomberg

Senior reporter Reporter

simon@waimeaweekly.co.nz

A swimmer in the Roding River in Aniseed Valley had a near miss when a car plunged off a cliff at the White Gates Reserve and into the water just three or four metres from where they were standing. The parked car rolled down a slope and over the six metre cliff into the river at the popular swimming and picnic spot last Thursday afternoon at about 3pm. A swimmer in the river below watched in horror as the car flew through the air and plunged into the river just metres away. Police said it was fortunate that nobody was hurt. The swimmer was lucky the car missed them while the passengers had got out of the car before it started rolling down the slope towards the cliff. The owner and passengers of the car, which had only just been purchased and was uninsured, tried desperately to stop it rolling over the cliff, but it was going too fast. "It started moving and I opened the door and tried to pull up the handbrake, but it

One of the owner's friends also tried to stop the car rolling over the cliff by pushing it back up the slope, but the car had too much momentum. Although the driver said he had put the handbrake on when they parked, police suggested the brake may not have been fully engaged. The car's automatic transmission may also have slipped out of park. Tasman District Council staff were called to help clean up a

small amount of oil which had spilled from the car's sump, which was damaged as it went over the cliff. The council’s reserves and facilities manager Beryl Wilkes says the council may consider installing a barrier across the front of the cliff after Thursday's incident. "I haven't had a chance to talk to the staff member who went out there on Thursday, but it's something we would look at," Beryl says. The owner of the car and his friends towed the damaged car out of the river later that same day.

Kempthorne will stand for mayor again

Tasman district mayor Richard Kempthorne will be seeking a fourth consecutive term as mayor and a sixth term on council at this year’s elections. Richard says he enjoys contributing to the community in his leadership role as mayor and would like to continue for another three years. “I enjoy it and I think I do a good job, so I’ll be standing again. It’s also going to be important to have some Mayor continuity in counRichard cil as it looks at the Kempthorne. big issue of finding an acceptable funding model for water augmentation on the Waimea Plains. “This year and next year will be critical in that decision-making process and I want to be involved in that.” Deputy mayor Tim King says “it’s too early to make a commitment” although he would “probably not” seek the mayoralty. Long serving Richmond councillor Judene Edgar categorically ruled out the possibility that she would stand for mayor.

Chef ready to wow at Sarau Simon Bloomberg Organisers of the Sarau Festival in Upper Moutere are taking the approach that 'if it’s not broken, then don’t fix it,' with this Sunday’s ninth edition featuring all the same “tried-and-true” attractions that have made it one of Nelson’s most popular events. The festival was first held in 2008 as a celebration of the arts, crafts and food of the Moutere Valley. It has always featured a number of popular foodie events that reflect the importance of blackcurrants to the district’s economy and organiser Jenny Leith says this year is no different. “We’ve got Angela Kernohan from Melrose House Cafe doing the Sujon cooking demonstrations this year,” Jenny says. “The cooking demonstrations are always one of the big attractions so there was no point in changing anything. We did have some new ideas but decided it was better and easier to just focus on the tried-and-true formula that has worked in the past.” Angela’s demonstrations are scheduled to start at 3.30pm and 5pm. Also included in Sarau’s

The competition includes categories for desserts, preserves, beverages and innovative creations, as well as a category for children, with the first 80 entries receiving a product from one of the festival’s sponsors, Barkers. Jenny says the competition is free and entries need to be taken to the competition tent by 4pm

on the day. All baking needs to covered and any food that needs to be kept cold should be in suitable containers. New Zealand Hops chief executive Doug Donelan will also hold a seminar in the Grown in Moutere tent at 4pm. The photo competition is another popular event and people attending the fair will be able to win a prize by identifying where a selection of photos from around the Moutere Valley were

taken. There will be over 100 stall holders selling food, drinks, arts and crafts, as well as live entertainment. There will be plenty to keep the children entertained as well, with a range of activities in the Kidszone. The fair will be held at the Moutere Hills Community Centre on the Moutere Highway and starts at 3pm and finishes at about 9pm. Entry is $5 for adults, with children free.

Chemical scare leaves man in hospital Simon Bloomberg A man was taken to Nelson Hospital after being overcome by fumes, and roads were closed in central Richmond on Monday morning after a chemical incident at Richmond School. Emergency services were called to the school on Cambridge St at around 9am after a maintenance worker was overcome by strong chlorine fumes coming from the pool pump shed. Sections of Oxford and Cambridge streets were closed off by police who redirected traffic. Richmond Volunteer Fire Brigade’s senior station officer and incident controller, Blair Hall, says two crews from Richmond, two from Stoke and two from Richmond were called to the school. He says chemicals used for treating the pool, including chlorine, became volatile after being inadvertently mixed up in the pump shed and overpowered the man. Blair says the area was ventilated by firefighters wearing special protective gear. The man was treated at the scene by St John ambulance staff and transported to Nelson Hospital in a stable condition. He was treated and discharged later that week.

Weeds in Stoke stream: Stream edges in parts of Stoke have become “rampant” with weeds, which are so thick that one resident has deemed them to be a flood risk. Marye Miller contacted Nelson Live, concerned about the amount of what she says are “noxious weeds” growing amongst native plants in and around the Orchard Stream Garden, and other parts of the stream along The Ridgeway and further up Marlowe St. She says she has noticed that the weeds have been growing progressively over the last year and, despite contacting Nelson City Council three times about the weeds, she has not been given any answers. Alec Louverdis, Group Manager Infrastructure at the council, says that spraying work has been carried out on the worst of the weeds, and a follow up control has been programmed for after the holiday break.

SKATEBOARD TOUR: Nelson eight-year-old Alex Moreu gets air during the final in Richmond on Saturday. Alex, along with his brother Sam, shredded up the competition throughout the Tasman Skatepark Tour. Alex just edged Sam to win the junior skate section and took home a custom board and a $400 skate shop voucher for winning the competition. Photo: Houst Bryant.

Brittany Spencer Local brothers Alex and Sam Moreu shredded up the competition at the final Tasman Skatepark Tour. The boys have toured the region’s skateparks, competing in every heat of the competition sponsored by Village Cycles and Cheapskates. Younger brother, Alex just edged out big brother Sam to win the junior skate section with style. “It’s awesome I won, it was so much fun and I love skateboarding,” says eight-year-old Alex. Older brother Sam doesn’t mind being beaten but he’s looking for redemption next year. “The competition is great, I can’t wait until the next one!” The boys’ father Mike Moreu says he couldn’t be prouder. “I’m so proud of the boys, they put a lot of effort into it and they just love skateboarding.” Mike says their family spend over 15 hours at the skatepark each week. “It’s really fun watching them develop and it’s also just really fun sharing it with them, going out and skating with them.” “We got into it as a family last year and it’s just been one big great adventure since, you can’t keep them off their boards,” says Mike. Alex and Sam skate everything from penny boards to Popsicle decks, long boards and even surf skateboards. And their collection is still growing, Sam took home a deck while Alex takes home a custom board and a $400 voucher from Cheapskates for winning the comp. As for the bumps, bruises and wipeouts, Mike says it comes with the territory. “They still have the advantage of being small, they’re quite gutsy on their boards but they don’t have far to fall.” The boys are already thinking about the next Skatepark Tour and are trying to convince dad and their older brother Tom to join the competition. “We’ll see how it goes,” says Mike with a smile.

Nelsonians more likely to pitch a tent Nelsonians are more likely to go camping than other kiwis, according to a recent survey. The study was commissioned by a campervan company to look at kiwis’ holiday habits and it showed that Nelsonians have the highest percentage of tent ownership in the country. Sixty-three per cent of Nelsonians own a tent, far more than the national average of 47 per cent. The survey was conducted with over 10,000 respondents across New Zealand. The results come as no surprise to co-owner of MD Outdoors, Mike Smithers. “There’s definitely a camping culture in Nelson,” says Mike. “It’s a passed-down family tradition of just going out and doing it, the parents do it and then the kids get the bug. They’ll go out, grab a two person tent and throw it in the car as teenagers, and tramp

places like Momorangi Bay every summer. “My business partner has an annual family holiday in Totaranui, while best friends of

ours will pick up the canvas tent and pitch it in Totaranui for two weeks almost every holiday.” Kaiteriteri Beach Motor Camp

manager Dennis Petch says the campground is full with locals this summer. “We get a lot of people coming up from Christchurch, but we always get plenty of locals from the Nelson-Tasman area.” Torpedo 7’s stock controller Anne Duboffon says that locals definitely buy a lot of tents. “We’ve sold 571 tents over the last year, 160 of those were in December alone. They’re all different types, but the most popular ones are the small hiking tents and the big canvas tents that people just chuck in their car and pitch up for a week or two,” says Anne. The survey also revealed that Nelson has the highest percentage of travellers, with 65 per cent of people saying they have taken a 10-day trip either overseas or in NZ in the last year. The survey was commissioned by RV Super Centre.

Tug of Peace to raise money for Hospice

It’s time to take the strain for the annual Tug of Peace challenge. Now in its 17th year, the competition raises funds and awareness for the Nelson Tasman Hospice, which relies on community donations and Government funding to operate.

Nelmac have dominated the mens’ event over the past six years and are challenging other teams to take them on next Wednesday, January 27, at 12.30pm in upper Trafalgar St. The teams they have come up against in the past include Talley’s, Sealords, ANZ, the Police and Fire services.

“We really appreciate the support of the companies who take part in the event and allow their staff to participate,” says Hospice fundraising manager Paul McIntyre. “Nelmac have been big supporters but it’s about time someone took them on and claimed bragging rights as the toughest

company in town. “It’s through events like these that we can raise funds so that the hospice can continue to offer such an excellent service to the people of Nelson and Tasman.” ANZ staff will be walking through the crowds with donation buckets.

Playcentre to host anniversary day fair

Jessie Johnston Richmond Playcentre welcomes the public to their annual Washbourn Gardens Fair. For around six years the garden market event has been the major fundraiser for the centre, which uses it for general running costs that aren’t covered by grants. This year the fair will be held on Monday, February 1, Nelson Anniversary Day, and will feature over 80 stalls, from balloon animals and face painting to keep the kids entertained, to plants, clothing and other unique items made by local crafts people. There will also be a range of dance

performances including Irish dancing, jazz, ballet, and demonstrations of Zumba and belly dancing, not to mention a selection of food and drink vendors. Richmond Playcentre will have a stall set up on the day with raffles and a silent auction available for people to enter, plus information for anyone interested in learning more about the centre. Donation buckets will also be floating around and Richmond Playcentre appreciate any donation people can afford. Come along to the garden fair for a fun day in the sun and the chance to support a local organisation. The event will be running from 9am until 2:30pm.

Kite festival success means it could be back

KITE FESTIVAL: Shakana Brooks, 8, with Talia, 4, and Awatea Smith, 7, at the 25th annual Nelson Summer Kite Festival at Neale Park on Sunday. The festival’s organisers said this year could be the last due to lack of members but the success of the weekend’s event may have saved it for another year. Photo: Jessie Johnston.

Jessie Johnston Kites of all shapes and sizes took to the skies over Neale Park on Sunday for the 25th annual Nelson Summer Kite Festival. The event is the longest running provincial kite festival in New Zealand and 2016 was a huge success, says coordinator and member of the Nelson Kite Club, Ted Howard. “It was much bigger than we expected, it was bigger than last year, much bigger. We suspect somewhere round 4000-5000 people came through, it was pretty busy all day.” Around 35-45 people made up the main display of kites in the centre of the park, which included a massive whale and dolphin, a dog, a dragon and a unicorn. Kite-fliers came from around the country as well as from Luxembourg, Singapore, UK, USA, Australia and Holland to attend the festival. Ted says that while the event isn’t promoted as an international festival, it’s getting such a good reputation with international fliers, who have experienced overseas kite festivals featurLast days of ing crowds of around 70,000. Organisers also took the opportunity to seek donations from the public and were overwhelmed with the response.

Airline help boost tourism: Great front page headline: “Airlines help boost tourism”. You didn’t add that airlines also help boost global warming and climate change. George Carr. We think it's great! Looking forward to 2016 and can't wait for the Nelson Airport expansion. Originair. I'm sure business owners and landlords will be thinking "let's increase prices!" Rayon Mackenzie. Lots of tourists, but are they spending money? Brenda Kenny. Certainly noticed an increase in tourists around the district this summer. Great for the local economy. The challenge will be providing facilities to accommodate increasing numbers in the future, as many facilities are at breaking point. John Sauer. I think it's fantastic. I have been able to get around a lot more since the new airlines have come in and our families have been able to visit. Kim Hewitson. I think it's great, but after recently doing a trip of the South Island I have to say that Nelson needs better promotion. I was impressed with Hokitika. We felt like we were wanted there as visitors.

routes set up with all the attractions for day trips. The signage was excellent and lots of places to see and things to do. Upon returning to Nelson, we noticed a real lack of adventure and sightseeing tourism here compared to the rest of the south. Also, Nelson has the worst public toilets by a country mile. If we are going to bring the people here then we need to be super-organised to host them. Nikky Lohmann. It's really good for the local economy but, oh boy, a bit of a struggle to get car parks in Nelson city these days! Philippa Foes-Lamb. It is great but, phew, Nelson airport is way overdue for an upgrade. Packed in like sardines over new year. Louise Raymond. Great to know tourism numbers are up, but we have to be able to look after them and keep them in every way.. Look forward to new airport.... well overdue. Fiona Thompson. Weeds in Stoke creek: I think the councils need to rethink their budget for maintaining streams, and road sides, they are a mess. Nola Timpson. Just look around Nelson, drive up Nayland Rd, there's an empty reserve full of weeds. It's not council land but have they demanded it get cleaned up? I understand residents

rants, c'mon council, maintain this beautiful city! Annie Whall. Orphanage Stream is terrible, too. After the big floods nothing has been maintained! The stream is so overgrown and looks awful. Would love to see it weeded back so you can actually see the water. Toni Brown. I think that the Justice system should get the men and women on PD to clean out all these streams around town as this would give them something that would be good for their community while paying for their crime. PK Bee. That's what they used to do. I lived next to Poorman's Stream and the PD fellas would always be the ones cleaning it up. Hasn't happened for years now. It's a real shame no one takes care of it anymore. I loved playing there when I was a kid. Brendan Price. PD teams or anyone on a benefit should be out in supervised teams clearing this sort of thing, while benefiting from having a structure to their days, a routine, free fitness regime, even a sense of worth.

Swap Meet & Market Sale Saturday 6 February 2016

Held rain or shine, starts 8am at Speedway Assn grounds Lansdowne Rd, Richmond

Nelson Vintage Car Club’s Swap Meet is back for 2016 and it’s the perfect opportunity to uncover some second hand or new gems. The event successfully debuted last year as a fundraiser for their new club rooms at the Nelson Speedway Association track on Lansdowne Rd. The swap meet is also a great platform for those looking to sell their items to a larger audience than they might normally receive at a garage sale. If a clean out of your home or garage is on your to do list, it’s not too late to book a site at the swap meet and re-

home your belongings. Simply email khmercer@xtra.co.nz for a registration form and payment instructions. Originally a swap meet would include buying, selling and swapping vintage car parts, but the event has now evolved into a super-sized rummage sale with all sorts of items turning up, from plants and clothing to antiques, toys and home ware. “When you compare it to a market or something like that, the markets don’t have the same quantity of second hand stuff, and that’s quite often where people find treasures and that’s

The Abbey complex is seeing some changes including local chef Takeshi Nagahama’s new restaurant La Capilla (The Chapel). Takeshi is leasing the old building that owner John Fijn had moved to the Appleby location 20 years ago, after it had been both a church and a library in Stoke. The restaurant showcases Takeshi’s love of Mediterranean-Spanish food, a style of cooking he picked up while studying in Barcelona and during his employment at several Michelin star restaurants in Takeshi Nagahama Spain. La Capilla endeavours to serve fresh, healthy, simple food, as well as work alongside local producers to offer people an excellent standard of cuisine. Together John and Takeshi are working hard to create a fantastic destination, with the complex also including a garden bar, coffee shop and antique shop. Takeshi’s work in New Zealand includes six years at Nelson’s Boatshed café with his last two as their dedicated head chef. Takeshi welcomes people to enjoy a relaxed dining experience at La Capilla, with lunch and dinner menus both created from scratch. To make a reservation, call them today on 544 1910.

One Dental Stoke is proud to introduce Joo Kim as its most recent staff member after she joined the team in September last year. Joo trained as a dentist in Dunedin and graduated in 2012, before spending a year working at Wellington Hospital. She has also spent time volunteering overseas, first in Tanzania while she was still at dental school and later in both the Philippines and Papua New Guinea, her work there included oral health care, as well as assisting in orphanages. As well as helping people with their dental requirements and relieving their pain, Joo says a big part of her decision to become a dentist was to be able to help her clients feel more confident about their teeth. To start the New Year with a smile, make an appointment with One Dental today. Contact the practice on 547 7725 and experience their professional, caring dental service. Scientists are getting excited about NZ Blackcurrants the first supplement that may increase fat burning when exercising. NZ Blackcurrants have one of the highest nutrient and antioxidant densities of any commercially grown fruit in the world. The subject of growing International scientific interest, research is highlighting how NZ Blackcurrant compounds may be effective for enhancing longevity and health, as well as disease prevention. In two studies from the University of Chichester UK, Sujon Blackcurrant Powder delivered impressive fatburning gains for endurance cyclists and improved endurance in runners undertaking maximal sprints. NZ Blackcurrants are the first to be found to contain polyphenol, which can influence fat metabolism and oxidation to such a degree during low and moderate exercise, which may have major performance implications. Studies showed, fat burning increased by 27 per cent at moderate exercising intensities and 15 per cent at low intensity. Helps reduce the rise of lactate by up to 14 per cent at maximum effort. Increased blood flow for faster tissue repair and clearance of lactate. Delays fatigue and enhances running endurance by an average 11 per cent. This year, Karyn White has been given the exciting opportunity to learn a new approach to spine and pelvis mobility from Jean-Pierre Barral, a French osteopath who is well known and respected for his work in visceral mobilisation. This is his first time teaching on this side of the world and Karyn is looking forward to adding these new techniques to her ‘toolbox’ at Happy Hands. Karyn believes that being able to move more freely and feeling easier in your body, greatly increases your sense of wellbeing. Along with therapeutic and deep tissue massage she uses Cranio Sacral therapy and Visceral Manipulation for a wholistic approach to mobility, pain relief and relaxation. Cranio is known for it’s effectiveness with babies, but it is an equally great therapy for grown-ups. Working with the fluids around the nervous system, it is deeply relaxing and relieving. Visceral Manipulation focuses on the attachment points of the organs, how restricted they are in movement, and the impact that has on the body. Whether you use Happy Hands as a part of your wellness management or just come for a massage when you need it, Karyn is passionate about offering a treatment unique to your needs in a private, relaxing space.

Tramper rescued after 10 metre fall A French tramper was airlifted out of Mt Richmond Forest Park, near Nelson, last week after falling some 10 metres off a mountain ridge. The Nelson Marlbourough Rescue Helicopter was called to locate and winch out the injured 43-year-old from near Mt Rintoul in the park. The man had been tramping the alpine route with friends when he stumbled and fell approximately eight to ten metres off a ridgeline – injuring his shoulder. The injured Frenchman was treated at the scene, before he was winched on board the helicopter for transport to Nelson Hospital’s emergency department.

Golfers help provide fresh water in Africa Kate Russell

Golfing legends Sir Bob Charles and Susan Farron will be gracing the Nelson Golf Club this Friday, as special guests for the Water for Prosperity charity golf tournament. The tournament is raising funds for the charity’s upcoming trip to Zimbabwe this June to install clean drinking water for residents in the town of Torwood. It will be the second time Sir Bob Charles has been involved in the tournament, but it is the first time Susan Farron, PGA professional and president of the New Zealand Professional Golfers Association, has come on board. Water for Prosperity spokesman David Barnes says are “delighted” to be hosting both golfers this year, who will also be holding a complementary coaching clinic for entrants at 11:30am before a shotgun start at 12:30pm. “It’s a great opportunity for people to meet Sir Bob – he’s a living legend,” says David. “It’s hard to get anyone better.” David says they are aim-

The bore holes provide clean water for the residents,

who previously had to walk hours to the nearest stream to collect dirty water. “Prior to us going there, much of the town had no electricity or water and children spent 10 hours a day fetching water from streams, which are

highly polluted,” says David. “The people are incredibly unhealthy from it and riddled with water-borne diseases.” Each bore hole costs NZ $7000, taking roughly one day to install. And, according to David, the resident’s reactions are priceless. “They come out in their hundreds and they’re crying and singing when the water comes up,” he says. “They can’t believe it - it’s absolutely life changing. The work we’re doing there is huge. Not only do they have clean water for drinking, but they can use it for irrigation and grow their own crops.” David reckons they’ll need to go back next year to put in another five bore holes, but in the meantime is looking forward to what should be an exciting tournament on Friday. Water for Prosperity charity golf tournament, Friday 29 January, at the Nelson Golf Club. Entry forms are available from the club. Entry fee is $40 per person and entrants must have a handicap of no more than 36 and need to be a registered golfer.

World’s best competes against local shearers

The pace at the annual Tapawera Shearing competition was red hot, with world champion shearer Rowland Smith joining the best shearers from Tasman and Marlborough on Saturday. The Hastings shearer and Feilding’s Aaron Haynes were star performers at the competition which is part of the Top of the South shearing circuit. Rowland has also competed at the Lumsden and Winton competitions and is heading to the Balclutha event next. Rowland also won the Tapawera Hotel Speed Shearer held in the hotel on Saturday night, shearing a lamb in a superfast 24.30 seconds. Aaron was second in 26.38sec with Jotham Rentoul the fastest Tapawera shearer.

Rain contaminates water supply There is a permanent boil water notice in place for the Dovedale Rural Water Scheme. The Tasman District Council issued the notice last Friday after recent heavy rain resulted in an increased sediment load in the Dovedale supply. This has caused the chlorine level in the water to drop as the sediment effectively soaks up the chlorine. Council says the boil water notice is for all drinking water, including water used for food preparation, utensil washing, washing your

teeth, pet’s drinking water and ice making. Council says the sediment level at the source has now dropped back to normal. The chlorinator is operating effectively which means the chlorine level in the system will gradually rise over the next few days allowing the boil water notice to be lifted. There are no other boil water notices in place for the Tasman district. Any queries regarding the notice call the council on 5438400.

Friday night marked the start of the Nelson Weekly Regatta Week and five days of exciting sailing competition in the Tasman Bay. The inaugural Liquorland Top of the South Trailer Yacht and Speed Boat Regatta began with an invitational race on Friday night, offering waterfront diners a sailing spectacle as crews completed three laps of the harbour. The local and visiting boats then went on to compete on both Saturday and Sunday in Tasman Bay, before their regatta came to a close with prize-giving on Sunday evening. Winners of the Trailer Yacht competition, based on a handicap, was Rattle & Hum. Skipper Craig Welsh says he was thrilled with the competition. "The weather was great, the sailing was fair and the club has been really friendly and welcoming," he says. "We'll be back." For winning the competition, the Christchurch-based team won the "Rum Cup", which was donated by Nelson Weekly. The cup came with a bottle of rum for the winners to enjoy from the cup. In second place was Honk n Jack and in third was Nelson-based Eagle. Eagle skipper Mark Howard says he was thrilled to have out-of-town boats to sail against. "We've got a growing trailer yacht fleet and until now we haven't had a regatta, we've had to travel out of town."

Sailors from Rattle & Hum with the Rum Cup. They are from left; Jonathan Ditmer, Matt Hannah, Jacquie Broadhead, Stephen Wright and Craig Welsh. Photo: Andrew Board. He says this event will only get more popular because it is a form of sailing that's "affordable". "It's an entry level to get into sailing, it's not expensive but they're fast. They're fun and responsive and you don't have to store them at the marina. You just take them with you." By introducing the Liquorland Top of the South Trailer Yacht and Speed Boat Regatta to the sailing calendar, hosts Tasman Bay Cruising Club hope to give out-of-town sailors the chance to spend some time cruising and competing around the beautiful Tasman Bay and Abel Tasman National Park. The event then dovetails into the annual Nelson Regatta which has been running since 2009 for local and visiting

keel boats. The annual Wellington to Nelson race left Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club on Friday afternoon, acting as a feeder race for the Nelson Regatta which officially kicked off on Sunday. On Monday, keel boat crews raced their way to Torrent Bay, while on Tuesday they will compete in a short race round Tonga Island before making their way up through the national park and coming to rest in Tarakohe Harbour. A 10am start on Wednesday brings the crews back home to Nelson for the much anticipated prize-giving where accumulated points from all their races will determine a winner for both division 1 (Romeo) and division 2 (Juliet). Results from the keel boat racing will be in next week's Weekly.

Local driver Craig Griffith will be in Motueka next week for the NZDRA “Southern Nationals”.

Top drag racers heading to Nelson The NZDRA ‘Southern Nationals’ New Zealand Championship event rolls into the Nelson region on Saturday, February 6, with visiting racers attending from as far away as Invercargill and Auckland. It’s just a sixteen hour tow, says southern man Bruce Smith, who is looking forward to his first event after a two year rebuild of the car. "The engine is a fuel-injected Aria Fontana 540 cubic inch rear engine ‘Supercharged Outlaw’ car with a 1471 blower on top. Her best time has been a 7.02 sec at 189mph. My first run will be a slow one to make sure every-

thing is working well, then it will be time to put the boot up her and smoke off those Northern invaders." Motueka racer and NZ Champion in 2012, Craig Griffith, will head down to the local Rock FM Dragway at Motueka Airfield, and will be putting up a stiff challenge to Bruce and the key racers from the north, Paul Davison of Upper Hutt and Cameron Patterson of Pukekohe. Craig has run a personal best of 7.04 seconds ET and 192 mph in his 'Fluid Power Solutions’ race car. The Upper Hutt Glass sponsored Supercharged

Outlaws competition is the key feature class for the ‘Southern Nationals’. The Super Stock and Top Street classes will also feature top competition. Super Sedans, Junior Dragsters and two motorcycle classes will also feature. For the Harley fans we should see a good field of competition bikes, and recently at the ‘Summer Nationals’ in Taupo one of the Harley Davidson V-Rod Destroyers ran over 131 mph on the strip.’ Qualifying starts at 10am with racing from noon, adults $15, family $30 and under 12 free. www.ndra.co.nz for details.

There are a few things you can do to regain a sense of control. The key is to know where your money is going each week and prioritize your spending. You can’t change what you don’t know. Sorted.org.nz has an excellent ‘money-planner’ tool to help you work this out.  Sort your bills into an order of priority. Bills for essential things like rent and power should be paid first; high interest debts are the next priority.  Ask for help from family or friends.  Look for ways to increase your income. Can you remind your employer of how valuable you are to the business and ask for a pay rise?  Sell things you no longer need. A garage sale can reduce clutter and generate extra cash. Advertise bigger items on Trade Me or in the paper.  Call your creditors and make repayment arrangements. Creditors are much more likely to be flexible if you talk to them instead of just stopping payments.  If you do not have enough money to go around, talk to a Budget Advisor. They may be able to help you come up with a solution.
