Story and photo by Cathie Bell Australian company TimberLink is to invest $10 million over the next three years into its Blenheim sawmill. The investment will increase the amount of logs it processes by 40 per cent and lift staff numbers by about 40, from 86 now to between 120 and 130, Timberlink general manager Romon Spiers says.

Sawmill ‘bigger, better’ Continued from page 1 Chief executive Ian Tyson visited to show Marlborough mayor Alistair Sowman, Marlborough District Council chief executive Mark Wheeler and other council staff what the company plans to do with its 4.5 hectare sawmill site in Waters Ave to make it more efficient, profitable, and environmentally sustainable. More than $4 million will be spent this financial year, mostly on converting the mill’s kilns into two Contra Flow
Kilns, which would deliver a step-change improvement in the site’s manufacturing capacity and efficiency, and remove current drying bottlenecks, as well as reducing electricity and heat consumption per unit of production. Ian says this new equipment will move the Blenheim plant to using the most modern kiln drying technology in the world. “From September last year, when the business became Timberlink, a whole lot of
planning happened, and now people are going to see the outcomes of that planning. “Construction has started, it’s becoming a reality, it gets people excited because they can see what’s happening. That’s why we asked the council to come so they can see the transformation and modernisation of the site.” Not only will this programme modernise the mill, it will also have a positive effect on the local community, with more employment created,
Ian says. Blenheim mill staff will benefit from significant upskilling, he says, and local contractors and suppliers will also benefit from additional work and services required at the site. A l l t h is loca l i nvestment is good news for the Marlborough economy. “We are focussed on being a sustainable business operating in the Marlborough region, with the support and endorsement of the local community.”
Transformers dangerous for native falcons Story and photo by Angela Crompton More than half of all the falcons that die in Marlborough die from electrocution on a power transformer, and lines company Marlborough Lines is moving to try to stop this. Picton-based biologist and falcon expert Dr Nick Fox says accidental electrocution of the endangered birds was common all over New Zealand. “Over 50 per cent of the deaths of radio-tracked falcons in Marlborough have been through electrocution.” With a 90 centimetre wingspan, falcons have little chance of surviving if they tried to land on a transformer and Nick labels the poles “bird-zappers”. Falcons are predatory birds and seek high vantage points where they can look for prey. When trees are cut down for vineyards or other developments, the birds will fly on to transformers. Marlborough Lines operations manager Brian Tapp says that of the 3500 transformers in Marlborough, 750 were in areas where falcons fly
and just over 50 had been covered. Insulating transformers’ live electrical bushings costs more than $500, Brian says, so the work can only be done when someone is willing to pay. Marlborough Lines works closely with the Marlborough Conservation Falcon Trust which requires vineyard owners to ensure existing transformers are covered before falcons are released near their properties. New transformers installed by Marlborough Lines are all designed to keep birds safe and the company has shared that design with other electrical suppliers in New Zealand, he says. Nick says bird electrocution was not just a New Zealand problem. Last month the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, of which New Zealand is a member, was presented with a formal multinational motion, calling on member state governments, suppliers and funders of electrical installations to make all new infrastructure safe and retrofit insulation on existing structures.

Buildings sell faster and new tenants found Story and photos by Les Whiteside The commercial building market in Blenheim has been very active in the past month or two with widespread enquiries. “Probably the best for seven years,” says Grant Baxter from Bayleys Real Estate. This week a second building on Main St was auctioned. The building of Dominos and NZ Home Loans was sold this week for $794,000.00 to a Nelson bidder. With the Burger King building selling two weeks ago for a six per cent cap rate, this weeks sale was a similar cap rate of six and a half per cent. Twelve months ago cap rates were in the eight per cent vicinity, but with low interest rates and deposit rates investors are grabbing sight unseen proper-
About 60 people in the aquaculture industry have met in Blenheim to consider forming a ‘smart&connected’ industry group. Security of tenure, innovation, and a lack of useful information are the industry’s top issues, and another meeting is to be held in a fortnight’s time to form a group to develop a strategy to boost the industry in the top of the South Island.

The Former Corys Electrical site on the corner of 29 Main St and Opawa St was sold recently without a tenant, close to eight per cent based on previous rents. The buyer is a local investor and Grant already has interest from prospective tenants.
Internal Affair Minister Peter Dunne has appointed Larry Ching and reappointed Alison McAlpine, Viveyan TuhimataWeke, and Michael Pugh to the Lottery West Coast/Nelson-Marlborough Community Committee.

New owner for Blenheim Chimney Cleaning Story and photo by Celeste Alexander Cleaning chimneys and fireplaces is a whole new venture for local man Patrick Burdon. Pa t r ick p u r ch a s e d t h e Blenheim Chimney Cleaning business on April 1. Previously Patrick worked for 23 years at the salt works and says he was looking for something ‘new’, so when he saw the business for sale he felt it was a great opportunity. “It’s great to be working outdoors and I enjoy going to the different areas of Marlborough and meeting new people. “Every day is different and it’s great to be my own boss,”

A hot new business venture By Celeste Alexander Local man Doug Powell has handed his chimney sweep brush over to a new owner, and started up his own business installing fires. He has sold Blenheim Chimney Cleaning business to Patrick Burdon and started Marlborough Fire Installations. With his building background and five years spent in his chimney cleaning business, Doug says he was ready to go out on his own as an independent installer. “Basically, I will be doing everything but supplying the fire place. “I can do Council permits if needed, free appraisals and because I’m independent I’m not biased and work with all makes and models of fires,” he says. Inquiries are already coming in which is great news for Doug and he is willing to travel anywhere in Marlborough.

he says. Currently Patrick is being assisted by previous owner Doug Powell and together they are working through the ‘backlog’ of jobs. “It’s the busiest time of year for the business and we are working hard to keep up. “The main thing I want people to know is that if I don’t pick up straight away it’s because I may be up on a roof. So leave a message and I will get back to you,” he says.

Principals of the new firm created by the merger of Gilbert Haymes and Associates and Ensurv, from left, Tony Hawke, Phil Morton, and Perry Gilbert.
Land surveyors merge Story and photo by Cathie Bell Survey firms Ensurv and Gilbert Haymes and Associates have merged. The firms are to operate under the Gilbert Haymes and Associates name, but all is ‘business as usual’, they say. The directors of Gilbert Haymes and Associates will be Tony Hawke, Phil Morton and Perry Gilbert. Phil Norton, a previous director of Ensurv, will continue to work at the firm. Perry says all staff and equipment have moved to the new firm, so clients will continue to deal with the same people they are used to working with.

“The biggest change for Ensurv is the change of location and the name.” The firm is operating upstairs at 14 Queen Street, and continuing the Gilbert Haymes and Associates name, with this practice operating under various names since the 1920’s. “We didn’t want to lose that connectivity,” Tony says. In the short term, Perry says, the merged firm will operate from the Gilbert Haymes office on Queen Street. In the long term, the firm is considering building on the Ensurv site in High Street and moving there, but that is still being worked through, he says.

Energy efficient lighting Pest of the Month – Velvetleaf One infestation only has been confirmed in Marlborough for our fountain but we don’t want to take any chances of the invasive weed Velvetleaf (Abutilon theophrasti) getting established here. Velvetleaf is recognised as one of the world’s worst cropping weeds, affecting many arable crops. It was initially detected in the Waikato region in 2011 but more recently it has been found throughout New Zealand, probably arriving as a contaminant in imported fodder beet seed. Our Council Biosecurity staff are currently assisting field teams in Canterbury to search at-risk fodder beet crops to

try and quickly determine the scale of spread of the contaminated seed lines. • If you suspect you have seen this invasive plant, please phone the MPI Hotline: 0800 80 99 66.
Giving away annuals from Seymour Square Twice each year, the Council gardeners plant out thousands of annuals in the flower beds of Seymour Square. With autumn here, the time has come for the annuals to be removed and the garden beds prepared for the spring planting. So next week, the beds will be dug over and the Geraniums, Petunias, Salvias and Begonias removed.
This is a chance for local gardeners to take home annuals for their own gardens. Our gardeners will be on site to give direction and ask that people bring their own garden fork and containers. Gardeners will be removing the annuals from Seymour Square on Monday 11th April from 8.30 – 10am.
Positive ageing - Eating the right food is a key to good health for older people Inadequate nutrition can have a serious effect on the health of people as they age. Poor nutrition, even malnutrition, can create the symptoms of ill health; feeling lethargic or light headed, losing appetite or kilos. The sense of smell and of taste can deteriorate with age so it’s all too easy to lose interest in food. Medication may also affect taste and poor dental health or trouble with dentures can discourage good eating. For people living alone it can seem too much bother to cook for

one, especially when loneliness or depression comes into play. And if poor health or mobility is already an issue, the effort required to prepare a meal can be just too much for some older people. • For those who are not eating as much as they need, it’s particularly important the food they do consume is as nutritious as possible, and includes • High quality protein found in eggs, lean meat, fish and poultry. • Iron and Zinc and Calcium found variously in lean red meat,

poultry, fish, breakfast cereals and dairy products. Other healthy food includes: fats (nut butters, nuts, seeds and olive oil), whole grains (brown rice, whole wheat bread, oats and whole grain cereals), fresh fruit and vegetables (canned and frozen are also good), and protein-rich beans and legumes. It’s also important to drink enough water. The water content of the body diminishes with age. In older people it’s very easy to dehydrate quickly, without even noticing a thirst.

This is a massive shout-out to Katherine. You went over and above to help me out with my mixer. Exceptional customer service! Thank you so much.
The Sun Too young Yes, absolutely, too young for a one year old to be having chocolate. Glad there are people with this opinion. Sweet stuff like that should not be introduced so young as it’s training those taste buds and does them no favours in life. Then they take preference to sweet over savoury. It does ones child a huge favour to keep them off sugar for as long as possible, for teeth & all health.
Dangerous driving Silver car number plate EEExxx driving to airport 7pm Friday night in the rain. You’re lucky I didn’t report you lady - driving far too fast and aggressively and then when I saw you park at the airport and pull a toddler out of your car I felt sick. Think about it!
ASB Theatre World class theatre, world class show. Wow! celebration ShowTime what an awesome experience. Loved the entertainment, loved the decor of the auditorium. Congratulations to absolutely everyone involved. What a fabulous asset for Marlborough. Those who continue to be critics go buy a ticket for a show, see for yourself then you qualify to make comment. LD & EK
Take a bow Wow Marlborough, stand up and take a bow! We have some amazing talent here, having just been to the Celebration Showcase, I can’t believe how lucky we are to have people with the foresight and vision ( and extremely broad shoulders!) to take on building a theatre that will make us the envy once again of many other provinces. Well done also to the myriad of volunteers who put those shows together, it must have been chaotic out the back! I’m really looking forward to attending more shows and eagerly await the finished complex.
Big thanks A big thanks to the courteous broad shouldered driver of the AirNZ van on Monday who helped me clean my car windscreen of what appeared to be an enormous pterodactyl pooh. I didn’t catch your name but appreciate the help.
Good business? Would it not make good business sense to have all the local markets in one place on one day at A&P Park? It would increase the customers for all involved. Farmers Market could still “circle the wagons” as they do now. The artisans market is a natural compliment, the car boot sale could continue to charge $5 a site and there is an opportunity for another fundraising group to run a fee paying off road car park.

Going crackers.. Ok my turn to vent... Every week I shop at my local supermarket in Springlands and buy crackers as hey this is Marlborough the region of wine and cheese crackers, but sadly my supermarket is not on board - selling box after box of broken crackers every week. Handle with care be the logic I say, as a consumer we should be able to open all boxes until we find a good one if any at all, this is becoming a joke, sort it out please!!!
Illegal trailers Why, around the local roads, are there all these unregistered tractor trailers at all hours of day and night travelling not just a few but many miles! Oops, apparently that blind eye is okay for grapes, without lawful compliance. Just look for speeders, that’s the ‘ticket’ good lads. Drink to that!
Chicken takeaways.. I can only think you may be referring to KFC and if so I totally agree. They do the best they can in their situation. I can see both sides here. You have customers going to a ‘fast food’ takeaways because it’s fast...or supposedly and they become frustrated when it’s, often, very slow but those of you do need to think that they are doing the best they can. If there’s not enough workers to cover demand then there’s not much that can be done. It’s not their fault. The way you treat others can have an impact on them...you treat them badly they end up having a bad day now multiply that by the amount of people treating them badly. Have some empathy.
Check your till receipts For the second time in a week at my local supermarket in Springlands. My shopping was over charged nearly two dollars first and four dollars this time. And check the dates, I saw the eggs were a week out of date on Saturday.

Beavertown airport Cheap flights are here, yahoo. BUT get caught parking over 15 minutes by the fence and airport parking will now clamp you- $$$$. More than the flight cost.

Perfect!

What meal do you never get sick of eating? Anything my wife Philippa cooks. She’s doing vintage cooking currently for a couple of wineries so we are all eating well. One of my best holidays was... A friend’s house on a gorgeous beach at her village in Lotofaga, Samoa. I’d recommend Samoa in our winter to anyone. My guilty TV pleasure is... We like to watch series like House of Cards – and sometimes will watch several episodes in an evening.

What would you change about the world? The obscene imbalance which sees the world’s 85 richest people own as much as the poorest 50 per cent of humanity. What’s one thing that you’ll never throw away? Just about anything – other than recycling (even then I sometimes return with another treasure). Who would you love to have a meal with? Peter Fraser and Sir Winston Churchill (both brilliant Prime Ministers through WW2), Sir Ed Hillary, and more currently, Helen Clark and Nigella Lawson.

About 15 years ago at the house where I was living I wanted to increase my vegetable growing area after having given my chickens free range of the back yard. The house was down a long drive in a commercial area so no problem setting up an area for growing except the area was a turning bay with heavy gravel. The only way to have a garden would be to have a raised garden well above the gravel. I also wanted a raised garden that could be worked without bending down and the cheapest way for that would be to use roofing iron. Take three sheets of galvanized iron 1.8 metres long and two 100 x 100 fence posts 1.6 metres long. Cut the fence posts in half. The fence posts are treated with chemicals so a couple of coats of acrylic paint are applied all over. The whole raised bed will sit on the ground. Construction is simple; lay two painted fence posts on the ground and place one
sheet of iron over cover the posts. Check to make sure its square fitting and then drill holes of suitable diameter to take the roofing screws. The same is done on the other long length of iron. The final sheet of iron is cut in half making it 90cm long, a nice width to work. It is best to assemble where it’s going to sit which ideally one long side should be facing in a northerly direction.. One very important aspect is place as far away as possible from trees & shrubs. This is to prevent robber feeder roots taking all the goodness out of the raised garden. If your raised garden is sitting on concrete good, but if near to trees etc, then sit the garden on a thick black plastic sheet to prevent roots invading. Now have the raised garden ready to fill. Place any trimmings of trees and shrubs into the bottom along with any rubbish, organic material which can be grass clippings, sawdust,
newspaper, old compost, old potting mixes and even some top soil, filling the raised garden to about half the depth. Over this you put several layers of newspaper. Cover this with purchased compost to about 35cm from top. Now you spread some goodies such as sheep manure pellets, Neem Tree Granules, Rock Solid, Ocean Solids, chicken manure and the cover these with another layer of purchased compost about 5cm deep. Now it’s ready to sow seeds or plant seedlings. The gap between the mix and the top creates a wind break and so you have your own special micro-climate and plants will grow twice as fast compared to if they were in open ground. When a crop is harvested just place more goodies into the bed and cover with more compost. Any problems ring me at 0800 466464 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Train ride to Kekerengu
Dunedin Railways, the operators of Taieri Gorge Railway, is bringing a train load of 89 passengers to Blenheim as part of a rail tour of the East Coast of the South Island early next month. The train tour, which is operated using the Silver Fern rail car, begins in Dunedin on 30 April and travels through to Christchurch with a side trip to Hanmer Springs and then onto Malborough. The tour arrives in Blenheim on 2nd May and is here for three nights. While in Blenheim, the Silver Fern rail car has a free day on 3 May and will be available for Marlburians to take a trip and experience something special. The train will be departing from Picton at 1.45pm and Blenheim at 2.20pm and travelling South to
Kekerengu and The Store. The Silver Fern is expected to arrive at The Store in Kekerengu at approximately 3.40pm. It will be a relaxing trip down with a couple of stops on route to let freight trains through. It is only about a two minute walk down the coastal path from the train to The Store. The Store is the ultimate coastal experience. Passengers can relax with a glass of wine or stroll through the gardens to the beach. There will be croquet and kubb games for you to enjoy and if the weather doesn’t play ball the huge indoor fires will be roaring. A substantial afternoon tea is included in the cost of the trip you could even call it a late lunch or early tea. On the menu will be seafood
Diabetes research update Diabetes expert Dr Jim Faed is to speak at a Lions Club function on Saturday afternoon. From the Otago Medical School, he is doing research into the use of stem cells for the control of Type 1 Diabetes. Lions Clubs around New Zealand are fundraising to buy equipment to help in this research. The talk, for Lions Club members and any interested members of the public, is to be held in Blenheim on Saturday at 2.15pm at the Wesley Centre in Henry Street.
Happy travellers on a Dunedin Railways excursion.
r e p ¢ 6 Save * e r t i l Local Government seminar tomorrow Saturday’s Local Government Seminar is about more than just listening for those present, says Colin King. The seminar will be held at the Blenheim Club from 10am and will feature speakers Simon Lusk, Liz Evans, Jamie Arbuckle, Brian Dawson, former Christchurch mayor Gary Moore and Colin King. “Attendees are required to do some serious planning before they attend. “One piece of work they are required to bring along is a

they are standing, what they stand for, and what they have to offer their community,” he says. There are two very important features of the resume. It must tell voters why they should vote for them, plus it will provide the foundation for all speeches, brochures and opinion pieces. While Local Government 2016 election day is some months away, those considering standing can use the time they have remaining in a positive way, by being fully informed about what
will be required of them when the election starts, Colin says. “I decided to run the Local Government Seminar for two reasons, firstly I have witnessed very capable people standing for the first time and being at a loss as to how they can get their message across to the community. “The other point is, it can be a long and lonely journey during an election so it is encouraging to have others to talk to,” he says. Candidate nominations open on July 15 and close noon August 12.

Can-Am Defender test drive By Terry Stevenson Can-Am have rolled out an all-new model line-up to jump on the growing farm Side by Side utility bandwagon, offering four models in the Australasian market. The 2016 Defender is easy to use, has superior vision for the driver, and it’s easier than others to get in and out of. What struck me most on the Defender is how well the suspension worked after putting it under pressure. The quality front and rear Sachs shocks kept each Defender’s wheels pointed exactly where I wanted them to go regardless of speed or terrain. This is by far the smoothest driving farm SxS I’ve tested since they first came onto the market, hands-down! The big feature farmers need to pay attention to is the torque output of the 4-valve Rotax V-twin engines. The HD-8 series Defenders use the 800cc V-twin powerplant producing 37.3Kw (50hp) but more importantly, almost 68Nm of torque for great pulling power. That’s more torque than horsepower! The HD-10 series Defenders incorporate a 1000cc V-twin motor producing 53.7Kw (72hp) with a stump-pulling 83Nm of torque. Drive one and you WILL notice the difference! I could keep the Defender in High ratio no matter what
terrain I came across. I tested the motors at all rev ranges and like the Can-Am Commander the engine has an extremely smooth and linear power delivery - all the way to redline. Maximum towing capacity is 907kg, while you can cram in up to 454kg in the manually lifted tipping tray. For sustained low speed hill work though, you’d be better putting the CVT transmission into low ratio for long-term reliability. Don’t forget, when going downhill you need to be in low ratio for the effective transmission braking to kick in. There are plenty of other features that really matter, such as the huge 40 litre fuel tank which means you can be out all day and not worry about returning early for a top-up. The HD-10 XT comes standard with a number of extras including a 2014kg Can-Am winch, an adjustable driver’s seat, larger diameter tyres to handle the bumps better, more comprehensive instrumentation, and a full hard roof. At day’s end when you’re done with all those farming chores, the Defender is a perfect vehicle for your hunting adventures or fast recreational riding. You name it, the Defender can do it, so if you are considering a new or replacement Side x Side utility you should make the effort to take a Can-Am Defender for a test drive. PBA.

MRSA are pleased to advise that Poppy Day will be held on Friday 15 April with our Poppies which have been sourced from Christchurch. The poppy reminds us of sacrifices made – both past and present. Poppies were the first flowers that grew in the battlefields of Flanders in Belgium during World War One and are a symbol of remembrance and hope. Poppy Day has been a part of the New Zealand calendar since 1922, making it one of the oldest nationwide appeals. We remember those 646 Marlborough men and women who gave their lives in service over the last century as well as the veterans of more recent conflicts and those currently serving in New Zealand and overseas. As we remember them, we show we care by donating to the RSA support services through the Poppy Appeal. MRSA appeal collectors will be on Marlborough streets from 9:00 AM on Friday 15 April. The Poppy collection goes to the Marlborough RSA Welfare and Poppy Trust to cater for the needs of Marlborough Returned, Ex Service, Serving members, Widows and Widowers and their families who are in need, whether or not they are members of RSA. There are other ways you can make a donation too by posting a donation to MRSA, 42 Alfred Street, Blenheim OR dropping it at Clubs reception OR donate via internet banking, make your deposit to account number 01-0598-00019901-003. Use your surname and the code Poppy as a reference. If you’d like a receipt, email MRSA@clubsofmarlborough.co.nz with the subject line “Internet banking donation”, making sure to add your name, date and the amount of your donation. A receipt will be emailed to you. John. L. Forrest President

Artisan Market’s winter shift Story and photo by Cathie Bell The Marlborough Artisan Market has moved into winter mode, and will be open every six weeks at different places, starting this weekend with an afternoon session in Seymour Street. Organiser Debbie Carter said mornings were often cold in winter, and people had commitments with sport, so the market was going to open at 12.30pm until 3.30pm to give people a different experience.
The market is setting up in the carpark outside Roger’s Kitchen, and restaurant owner Roger Raizada will be doing a demonstration at about 1.30pm. “I’m just going to show people how easy it is to cook Indian food.” The market will be held in different places every six weeks or so through the winter months, Debbie says.

Minister sells TPPA to locals
JONES, Gail Jennifer: April 5, 2016
By Cathie Bell The bill to bring the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement into force in New Zealand will be tabled shortly, and would be open for public and Parliamentary scrutiny for the rest of the year, Trade Minister Todd McClay says. About 15 people gathered at the Blenheim Club yesterday to hear the minister talk about how the TPPA would benefit Marlborough, especially the wine industry. He says Marlborough’s 140 wineries will be significant winners under the agreement with almost a billion dollars’ worth of wine already sold into TPPA countries. “The United States is New Zealand’s biggest wine exporting destination and it, alone, is worth almost half a billion dollars each year. We have never achieved duty-free access, but now, under TPPA, that is exactly what we get – and almost all of those tariffs are eliminated on entry into force.” The seven new duty-free markets for wine are the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Peru, Malaysia and Vietnam. “New Zealand winegrowers have been subject to heavy tariffs, particularly in emerging markets. Mexico currently has a 20 per cent tariff and Vietnam has a 50 per cent tariff. “The reduction and eventual elimination of these tariffs will encourage our winegrowers into new markets.” There has been a lot of misinformation
JOWERS, Leslie Brian (Les): March 29, 2016 MACGREGOR, Ian Craig: April 2, 2016
Does food taste the same if you can’t smell it? Up to seventy-five percent of what we perceive as taste actually comes from our sense of smell. Taste buds allow us to perceive only bitter, salty, sweet, and sour flavours. It’s the odour molecules from food that give us most of our taste sensation.
Trade Minister Todd McClay speaks at the Blenheim Club
about the trade agreement, Todd says. Involving 16 countries, the TTPA was extremely large and complex and until negotiations were completed, it was difficult to talk about it. The law to bring it into force in New Zealand will be available very soon, he

Farewell ‘Hairy Javelin’
The retirement of Grant Elliott from one day international cricket is sadder than it would have been two years ago. The 36-year-old called time last week following New Zealand’s limp semifinal loss to England at the World Twenty20 Championships but has yet to make a decision on the shortest form of the game yet. However, he called stumps after proving a point that New Zealand Cricket had ignored for many years - players over 30 can still contribute in a major way in international sport. The South African-born allrounder’s seemingly forlorn career was revived last year when New Zealand needed a No 5 batsman for the 50-over World Cup on home soil. What transpired was him being
the most unlikely of heroes in the semifinal at Eden Park against fellow big stage chokers South Africa when he hit Dale Steyn for six when five runs were needed off the final two balls. He also scored a gritty half century in the final that was eventually lost to those foul mouthed Aussies. His heroic feats made him the country’s most favourite ex-pat South African since Andrew Mehrtens. A revolving door of players had been the policy of cricket in this country since the late 1980s. A lack of depth and constant coaching changes were the likely cause but Elliott’s selection was one out of the box. While his place in the squad was bemoaned by the Kiwi sports public (myself included) as a
clear weakness in the team, the selectors backed his good form in domestic cricket to give him a go. The public wanted talented bad boy batsman Jesse Ryder but the selectors stuck to their guns. How right they were and how wrong we were (the public). Elliott is proof that just because you fail early in your career doesn’t mean you’re cast to the scrap heap forever. Leg spinner Ish Sodhi is going through a second chance renaissance himself in the team. Sport is littered with remarkable individual sport comebacks and while Elliott’s won’t be remembered globally, it was a key component in one of the greatest six week periods of New Zealand sporting history. The Black Caps dared us to dream and we all did.

Sport sports talk With ... Jacob Page
Bateman says he is happy to be seeded in the top 20 but is well aware that there is a lot of fast drivers both in front of them and also behind, so they will have to be right on their game to finish in the position they started or indeed further up the field. He intends to complete in both days of the iconic Otago Rally. The Mainland Series drivers only collect points from day 1 of the rally, and father and son duo of Dave and Liam Gee are looking for maximum points from the weekend to stay leading the Class E (pre 96 4wd) of the Mainland Series. The Gee duo will be 33rd on the road and hope to take advantage of the more swept roads for another great result in their Subaru WRX. Car 51 is piloted by Havelock’s

Cyclist recovers from heart attack A cyclist suffering health problems was helped out by fellow competitors. Out of town cyclist Shane Scott was taking part in the Forrest GrapeRide last weekend when he suffered a serious heart attack. Riders and members of Richmond Volunteer Fire Brigade, Jeremy Talbot and Tracey Parks came across him and were able to assist until St Johns Ambulance arrived. Shane has since come out of an induced coma and is making a steady recovery.
Team Yealands Family Wines have won GODZone Chapter Five after racing 530km through epic top of the South countryside for 3 days, 13 hours and 44 minutes.

Drivers have high hopes for rally By Cathie Bell Three Marlborough rally teams are heading to Dunedin this week for the Otago Rally. This rally is the first round of the New Zealand Rally Championship and the second round of the Mainland South Island Series.

Rugby is in full swing in Marlborough again. The local premier club competition is already three games old.

Local Marlborough Junior rugby is in full swing from May 7th when all grades from under 6’s to under 18’s start. Also this season Tasman Rugby will be running a number of additional events and tournaments for young people of various ages. The RM Transport Youth 7’s is first up on Sunday May 1st for teenagers aged 14 to 18 who want to give sevens rugby a crack.
