Local’s Sandy experience

Coast report disputed David Haxton

A controversial Kapiti coastal hazard report came under fire at a public meeting which attracted 200 people. Guest speaker at the Coastal Ratepayers United-organised meeting, at the Senior Citizens Hall, Paraparaumu Beach, on Saturday, was Dr Jeff Ashby, who took issue with a number of aspects of the Roger Shandauthored report, which has seen 50- and 100-year coastal hazard mapping lines affect 1800 Kapiti beach properties. ‘‘In particular its failure to take into account any accretion,’’ Coastal Ratepayers United chairman Christopher Ruthe said. ‘‘Accretion is when sand builds up. ‘‘This coast is an accreting coast. ‘‘Dr Ashby pointed out that the Horowhenua, which has a

similar coastline to Kapiti, is exactly the same classical cuspate sealine — and they [Horowhenua District Council] aren’t putting in hazard lines because they acknowledge the coast is accreting. ‘‘So we have the absurd situation of people on one side of fence saying the coast is accreting and on this side saying it’s eroding. ‘‘Dr Ashby emphasised the accretion along this coastline has been happening despite the fact there has been searise pretty constantly over the last century. ‘‘He said because of the nature of this coast, the chances of what is happening in the Shand report are a very worstcase scenario — it’s not likely to happen.’’ Mr Ruthe said the report’s figures, retrospectively, weren’t right ‘‘so if his [Shand] predictions were correct most of

the beach and properties dozens of metres away would no longer be here’’. And comments by council senior manager Gael Ferguson, reported in last week’s Kapiti News, who said affected property owners unhappy about their mapping lines could engage with an expert and the lines potentially altered after discussion with Dr Shand or council’s technical experts, were also taken to task. ‘‘We have obtained information from appropriate scientists who say each of those reports will cost each person something in the order of $17,000 to $22,000 per property,’’ Mr Ruthe said. ‘‘Dr Shand has already said he will not, and cannot, take into account accretion. ‘‘So he won’t be able to take into account those expert reports because they take into account accretion.

‘‘So the matter is clearly predetermined.’’ He said people were also annoyed at the council deferring decisions until all the evidence was gathered because timeframes, whether short or long, ‘‘wouldn’t make an iota of difference to the risk for the council’’. Mr Ruthe said ratepayers were being ‘‘exposed to absurd costs and expenses for something that should be resolved properly in terms of the Local Government Act which says people should have been consulted’’. ‘‘None were consulted.’’ And Mr Ruthe said under the draft District Plan affected property owners would face ‘‘extreme constraints’’ to alter their homes under the Building Act. ‘‘They [council] don’t want a Nature Coast — they want a Derelict Coast.’’

A touch of class Fashion in the Lounge was well supported when Midlands Gardens Retirement Village celebrated Melbourne Cup Day. In what has become a popular tradition, residents of the Village met in the hall mid-afternoon for drinks and refreshments and settled around the big television screen to cheer on the horses they had drawn in their local sweepstakes. With prizes for best dressed lady, gentleman and the best hat, many ladies had become very creative and there was a splash of colour and glamour to accompany the fun and gaiety. Winner of Best Dressed Man was Frank Torrance who came equipped with hat and binoculars. Best Dressed Lady was Pauline Irwin and Bev Ferrier took out the Best Hat with her hand-made creation topped with a fluffy bird.

IN BRIEF HEARINGS ON

The Mackays to Peka Peka Expressway hearings are under way at Southward Car Museum. The first day was on Monday. The hearings are expected to last nine weeks and finish on January 29. To find out more go to www.epa.govt.nz.

CHANGE OF VENUE

Relay For Life Kapiti’s official launch tomorrow will now be held at the Kapiti Boating Club, instead of The Jolly Bar, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

FARMERS REFIT

Farmers, in Coastlands, will be celebrating its refurbishment with a four-day event, tomorrow through Sunday. Farmers’ floor area has increased from 3500sq m to 5800sq m. Store manager Jo Hyndman said customers could expect discounts as well as events including promotional in-store demonstrations.

HELP IS AT HAND

An addictions and compulsive behaviour awareness day will be held in the Coastlands garden court on Friday, November 16. The initiative is being organised by Te Nikau Training Centre, Paraparaumu. ‘‘We’ve pulled together as many resources as we can and it will be a good opportunity to show individuals and families what help is available,’’ co-organiser Diana Marsh said. ‘‘It should be a very informative day.’’

LAUNCH SUCCESS

Raumati South Memorial Hall was almost filled to the brim on Sunday with parents and children celebrating the launch of Book Island’s first three children’s titles, Sammy and the Skyscraper Sandwich, Bernie and Flora and Sir Mouse to the Rescue. There were lots of exciting activities based on the books, including sword- and princess hat-making, colouring-in competitions, and — what was undoubtedly the highlight of the launch — the construction of a skyscraper sandwich out of recyclable materials. For children’s book publisher and owner of Book Island, Greet Pauwelijn, the launch couldn’t have been more successful. ‘‘We were absolutely blown away by the amount of people who turned up to support us. ‘‘Our concept of turning reading into a multi-dimensional experience has worked out really well. ‘‘Luckily we had the help of 17 volunteers — without them this launch just wouldn’t have been possible.’’

‘Cheapest and best option’ ■

David Haxton

Council has copped a lot of flak about its decision to install residential water meters. But not everyone is unhappy, including Gerry Cole of Otaki Beach, who reckons water meters are a good thing, especially as they will target water loss. Water meters were a small price to pay to stop the loss by leakage/wastage of clean, treated potable water, he said. ‘‘The saving will certainly reduce the load on our current infrastructure and probably avoid the need to spend on more infrastructure for some long time.’’ Moreover the council had to make a decision because the price of water was going up. ‘‘And I want the cheapest and best option.’’ Mr Cole says he has had 25 years business experience in providing water supplies to domestic and commercial properties in Kapiti in the mid 1950s to late 1970s via pumps and bores, creeks, dams and rainwater tanks. He says the maintenance left him in no doubt about the magnitude of water loss in private reticulation systems. ‘‘I commonly found substantial leaks that were often not realised by the owners. ‘‘These leaks were only found

SCHOOL GALA

Raumati South School’s gala is on Saturday from 10am to 2pm. Activities include 4WD and sidecar rides, bouncy castle and slide, dunny throw, marble race and sponge throw. There will be hot food, cafe, bake sale, sweets, live entertainment, quickfire raffle, service auction and a treasure map to win a weekend away; second hand clothes, bric a brac, books, toys, a Christmas craft stall and Santa’s grotto.

because pumps were running unnecessarily, alerting us to locate and repair. ‘‘A leak underground of five litres per minute equals 7200 litres per day but still not enough pressure drop in the house to alert the owner.’’ He says the same properties are being dealt with today but with higher water pressure, and moreover, there was no incentive to locate and repair leaks. Some typical leakage rates, he calculates, include a dripping tap which equates to 32 litres

A trickling garden hose could lose about 1500 litres per day. And a leaking toilet cistern 1000 litres per day. Mr Cole said there had been ‘‘so much animosity and bad information out there about water meters’’. He was astonished at people condemning water meters ‘‘out of hand and without justification’’. The common belief was water meters were about money

gathering and water privatisation, yet there ‘‘wasn’t a single thought for why the meters are needed or the consequences if they are not’’. ‘‘I think the council need a bit of help here. ‘‘I’m confident that as the water meters are progressively installed, and the magnitude of water loss/wastage becomes clear, those passionate objectors will quietly come to accept that council have on this occasion made the right decision.’’

Meters highlight number of leaks

Water leaks of up to 31,000 litres (31 tonnes) a day are being found on private property as a result of the roll-out of water meters across the Kapiti district. ‘‘I’m informed by council officers that when a meter was installed at one double property recently, the owners were very surprised to find they had a leak of up to 31,000 litres a day,’’ mayor Jenny Rowan said. ‘‘That is equal to two large tankers of water a day going to waste. ‘‘New water meters installed at other private addresses have shown up water leaks of 26,000 litres [26 tonnes] a day, 19,500 litres [19.5 tones] a day and numerous leaks in the 4000 to 9000 litre range. ‘‘This is only the start.

‘‘As more and more meters are installed and property owners check the readings against household use, more leaks will be discovered,’’ the mayor said. Councillor Mike Cardiff recently challenged several of his friends and associates to have meters installed and were surprised by the outcome. ‘‘I discovered I had a leak of up to 600 litres a day on my property but a friend, who will remain nameless, found his system leaking up to 20,000 litres over a two day span. ‘‘Suffice to say he now has a different appreciation of water meters.’’ When council staff phoned the owner of JB’s Environmental Ltd, seeking a

water tanker to illustrate how much 31,000 litres would look like, the owner John Matangi laughed, saying they had just discovered a water leak at their fish shop outlet in Te Roto Drive. ‘‘The meter was only recently installed and we wondered where all the water was going and discovered we had a leak of around 13,000 to 14,000 litres a day, equal to one of our large water tankers [which carry 16,000 litres]. ‘‘It came as a surprise and we were on to it pretty quick last week as the water comes at a cost.’’ Council group manager infrastructure Sean Mallon said information on how to read the new meters and the obligations

for council and individual property owners were clearly laid out in a new brochure titled Important Information About Your Water Meters. The brochure was being delivered to properties where meters had been installed. The brochure was also available on the council website on www.kapiticoast.govt.nz/ water-meters. ‘‘The meters are very easy to read. ‘‘Once a meter is installed, I would urge the resident to turn off all the appliances on their property and then check the meter to see whether the counter needle on the meter is still turning. ‘‘If it is, then you probably have a leak.’’

‘Like a war zone’ ■

Your best swimwear

Last week I updated you on the latest in swimwear trends for Summer 2012. Fashion is fun; the latest trends offer you fresh new ideas for expressing your own unique personality. No matter what your body shape is, there is a swimsuit style out there for you. For those adorable apples choose swimsuits with a high cut leg to show off those sexy pins of yours. V necklines are best to lengthen the torso, and dark solid colours will have a slimming effect. Invest in a swimsuit with good bust support and lots of lycra/spandex to give you a smooth silhouette. Heavenly hourglasses waist detailing should be your goal when purchasing. This could even be a graphic design at the waistline. Vertical stripes give a lengthening effect. Babelicious bananas might want to add extra curve, patterned fabrics will help to achieve this. Ruffles on bust and hip area will also add shape. Strapless styles will broaden the shoulders and belted bottoms will give you curvier hips. Contoured or padding in the top piece will enhance the bust area. For you pear shaped beauties, remember to keep the attention on the top half, with a patterned or brighter coloured top piece. Aim to buy contoured or padded styles to enhance that upper body. Racer back or boat necks will emphasise the shoulders giving balance. ■ Andie Dunne and Anita McGonigle are Wellington-based stylists, offering a range of packages to help you look and feel fabulous. www.colourwithstyle.co.nz

‘‘It was like a war zone,’’ is how Peter O’Keeffe describes what it was like being in the Frankenstorm that hammered parts of the United States. Mr O’Keeffe, of Raumati South, was on holiday visiting his son, who attends a university in Fairfield, Connecticut. Also on the trip was daughter Louisa. They were in Connecticut when the brunt of Hurricane Sandy struck. Power was cut, severe winds forced traffic lights to swing wildly, trees snapped like matchsticks, debris flew everywhere, and rain was extra heavy and constant. It lasted about 24 hours. ‘‘It was just staggering,’’ Mr O’Keeffe said. ‘‘It was a behemoth of a hurricane. It really just thumped in.’’ He didn’t fear for his life but was a bit apprehensive, especially in Fairfield, as the area had a lot of large trees. ‘‘There were truckloads coming down across the roads. ‘‘You could see them crushing cars. They would come down, crush a car, and blow it apart – phenomenal.’’ A scary moment was when a power generator blew outside Fairfield University. ‘‘We were trying to get out,

all the lights were out, and the power lines came down on the top of us. Luckily we could back out.’’ At a place called Milford, there were beachfront homes a long way from the sea, but now they had sea lapping at their piles. And streets had become rivers. ‘‘People were out in boats rowing along.’’ There were long queues at gas stations. ‘‘A lot of people were sleeping in their cars overnight waiting for petrol stations to open.’’ With power out, one restaurant was doing a roaring trade. ‘‘We were wandering around Fairfield one day trying to find a feed. And there was one pizza place open as they had brought a generator in. The pizzas were great, maybe because we couldn’t see them.’’ Mr O’Keeffe said the worst thing was what he didn’t see. ‘‘And that was the Americans with a 1000-yard stare. You could see they had Hurricane Irene last year and then this one. Mentally they were pretty whacked.’’ He said the whole experience was surreal. ‘‘As I keep saying to people — when I booked the flights, my travel agent didn’t say I would get a free storm out of it.’’

Fresh police training views ■

Kapiti Mana Area Commander Inspector John Price is the new national training and development manager. Mr Price will be based at the Royal New Zealand Police College, Porirua. ‘‘I’ll be the training commander for the New Zealand Police. ‘‘It involves managing the training for the police and also includes the initial training and senior courses.’’ Mr Price said the main attraction was the ability to ‘‘have influence and impact on policing throughout the country and the ability to embed the operating strategy into

training’’, he says. ‘‘I have a training background. It’s very exciting. ‘‘ It’s a great role at the college because you get the ability to influence positive change around policing and policing culture,’’ he said. He’s got some change ideas but needs to discuss them with the police executive committee before doing anything. ‘‘But one of the first things I’ll be doing is seeing what’s working well and what we need to improve on and then base my planning on that.’’ Mr Price said he had absolutely enjoyed being in charge of policing in Kapiti Mana. ‘‘It’s a great place to police

and there are fantastic communities and policing teams. ‘‘I’m sure whoever takes over will continue the good work. ‘‘I’m pleased we’ve had a reduction in reported crime under my watch. ‘‘And also I’m hoping we’ve increased our visibility as police. Mr Price became Kapiti Mana Area Commander in March this year. Since late 2004 he was based in Christchurch initially as Policing Development Inspector and then for the past six months as Acting District Commander. Mr Price has been in the force for 25 years, based mainly in the Wellington region.

War won against Kapiti stoats Kapiti Island is now stoatfree, following an extensive trapping and monitoring campaign, according to the Conservation Department. A statement says the campaign has cost DOC more than $600,000 and a lot of time and effort since the first sighting of a stoat in 2010. Biosecurity monitoring and response methods have been permanently upgraded, and a team of stoat-detection dogs will be spending another week on the island later this month. ‘‘“Kapiti Island is one of New Zealand’s most important nature reserves,’’ DOC’s Kapiti Wellington area manager Rob Stone said. ‘‘We now know stoats can get there, and keeping it pestfree is a top priority for us. ‘‘Most people never get an opportunity to visit nature reserves but Kapiti is relatively accessible, providing opportunity to observe birds that are either very rare or absent from the mainland.’’ Kapiti Island is home to rare native birds including stitchbird, kokako, takahe, brown teal and saddleback. The little spotted kiwi thrives on Kapiti Island but is now extinct on the mainland. Mr Stone said DOC is in the process of making Kapiti

even more accessible, by working with new concessions to offer more streamlined, one-stop-shop packages for visitors, and increasing the number of people permitted to the island. Looking ahead five years, DOC is also developing plans that will review and improve visitor facilities, including establishing new tracks and board walks, and a better sewerage management system. ‘‘We want visitors to have a world-class tourism experience on the island, where they can see fully protected endangered species and hear fascinating stories in a stunning location.’’ Mr Stone says DOC is looking forward to working closely with iwi in the protection and management of the island. DOC is engaging with Kapiti Coast District Council, iwi and businesses on a ‘departure lounge’ concept to further improve biosecurity and add to the visitor experience. DOC has also signed a three-year sponsorship partnership with OMV, an international energy resource company, which will fund Kapiti Island’s biosecurity and stoat trapping programme.

Closer ties for colleges ■

Ann Reading

In an initiative as iconic as the Otaki Shield Scholarship, Otaki College is launching a reciprocal scholarship sponsored by Sander Ties of Otaki. On November 28, the Sander Scholarship will be officially recognised as the counterpart of the Otaki Scholarship which has been in existence since 1937. That Scottish-based scholarship, in memory of the steamship Otaki and her captain, is awarded to the head boy of Robert Gordons College in Aberdeen — rewarding an outstanding pupil with a sevenweek trip to travel through New Zealand and a visit to Otaki. Sponsored by Sander Ties of Otaki, the Sander Scholarship will finance a trip to Scotland for the selected student from Otaki College. Vice-principal of Otaki College Andy Fraser said students from Year 13 can apply. ‘‘Students will be able to work towards this from Year 7 on,’’ he said. ‘‘The student selected will have to be able to display scholarly endeavour, have a knowledge and understanding of the history not only of Otaki but also of the SS Otaki and Otaki College. They will have to be confident in oratory in both English and Te Reo, they should be able to demonstrate waiata and kapa haka plus be outstanding in leadership and community involvement, showing service to the school in sport and culture.’’ Shelly McRae of Sander Apparel said they are very happy to be offering this scholarship. ‘‘I believe that education is the most important thing you can give a child,’’ she said. The idea developed after each Otaki Scholar coming to new Zealand made a visit to the Sander factory for a New Zealand All Blacks tie. ‘‘The student preceding them always told the next one that they had to visit Sander Apparel for an All Blacks tie — and it grew from there.’’ Ms McRae said she and the company have established a trust to ensure the scholarship remains in perpetuity.

This finance deal is offered for a limited time only on selected spa pool models. Finance terms and acceptance are subject to our normal lending criteria and terms.

Follow the lead of Otorohanga? As a member of the Mayors’ Taskforce for Jobs, last week’s news that our national unemployment statistics had risen to a 13-year high certainly gave me a few more grey hairs. I was even more concerned that the number of young people aged 15 to 24 not in employment, education or training (NEET), had risen to 13.4 per cent. That we now have 294,900 people out of work and 113,300 under-employed is sobering indeed. Even more worrying is that this is the third quarter in a row where we’ve seen a rise in unemployment. In light of this gloom, it was really helpful to have Otorohanga mayor Dale Williams visit Kapiti last week as guest speaker to 50 local employers at two Youth Employment Forums, one in Paraparaumu and the other at the new Clean Technology Centre in Otaki. Back in 2004, the now legendary Dale Williams, who also chairs the national Mayors’ Taskforce for Jobs, set an ambitious target of zero youth unemployment for his small King Country town (population 9500). Otorohanga has maintained zero registered unemployment of people under age 25 since November 2006. Even better, thanks to a unique apprentice support system and 10 other youth initiatives, it also claimed a 75 per cent reduction in youth crime in the two years after the new initiatives began. Central to the success of the Otorohanga initiatives has been the establishment of trade training centre, run by the Waikato Institute of

Technology and driven by the district’s employers. The only courses they run are designed and supported by local industry to meet local needs. Effectively the town has done a brilliant job in understanding the supply and demand issues between business and young workers. One of the most important was the creation of a half-time job of apprentice support co-ordinator, who brings about 50 apprentices from around the district together for about two hours each week to help with their workbooks. He also visits them regularly and provides help with practical work and pastoral care. A lot of positive ideas and suggestions came out of these forums. In particular, the idea of knowing your community and what’s happening in business and what it needs, a stocktake of jobs available in the area, and a look at the advice/ guidance young school leavers are currently receiving. I’d like to hope Kapiti can move in the same direction as Otorohanga. With support from the community and some of our very positive employers, I’m sure we can. Watch this space.

Jill’s Column

Campaigners set for battle

JILL’S TEN POINT CHECK LIST FOR HOME BUYERS Property Address:

It was Edmund Burke who made this great observation about representative democracy: ‘‘Your representative owes you not his industry only, but his judgement; and he betrays instead of serving you if he sacrifices it to your opinion.’’ This famous dictum comes to mind as the KCDC engages with a significant section of its coastal community adversely affected by the proposed new coastal hazard lines. Every councillor and staff member is committed to keeping our community safe from the looming impact of sea level rises. There is no question about this. What’s contestable is the information that feeds councillors’ ability to make good judgements. This is why I appreciate the publicly stated motivation of Coastal Ratepayers United, the group set up to represent the majority of the 1800 affected properties. The group

says they. . .‘‘will be motivated by good science, good law, good engineering and good economics’’. I can understand that many of the 1800 property owners feel shafted that council has put the hazard lines information into their property LIM reports without the affected having a chance to contest the veracity of that information. Despite the personal angst over the immediate loss of property values, the group has chosen to engage council in a civilised manner. This is in sharp contrast to elements within the anti-water meter campaign. Mayor Jenny Rowan and councillors were subjected to personal attacks,

name calling and even sexually filthy posters. The election of Jackie Elliot to the Otaki Community Board is a clear indication of that success. But that right to opposition cannot justify the use of unethical tactics. One should not accuse council of putting out false information on water meters on the one hand and then indulge in a blatant manipulation of information. Ms Elliot has done the opposition no favours when it was exposed that she had manipulated Cr Penny Gaylor’s public statement on the privatisation of water services. When you are facing a ratepayerfunded Goliath-of-a-machine like the KCDC, any protagonist championing the public interest needs to assure the public that the slingshot is armed with the pebble of rock-hard truth. The unfolding battle between council and the Coastal Ratepayers United is going to be an interesting one for a number

of reasons. Firstly, it’s not, like some have attempted to portray, an opposition organised ‘‘by rich pricks’’ trying to protect their own speculative interests. Coastal property owners include people who have lived there for 30 years or more with many on fixed incomes. Secondly, in a democracy even ‘‘rich pricks’’ have a right to due process and natural justice. Thirdly, this battle involving 1800 properties is shaping up to be a test case and is being watched with interest nationally. Fourthly, the battle has already created run-away ramifications, including a possible defamation case against the mayor and a test of how council has been responding to an avalanche of Official Information Act requests. Lastly, even before any case goes to the Environment Court, questions over due process could see KCDC facing a judicial review at the High Court.

TEN POINT CHECK LIST FOR HOME BUYERS It is said that many home buyers decide on a property within the first 15 seconds of entering it! It may be the first property you see, it may be the hundredth, but a quick check list of your own personal “property priorities” could save you time, stress and money. My “Ten Point Check List for Home Buyers” is a simple way to get a clear and sensible comparison of the properties in your price range,as you view them. If the property is the best you have seen in your price range – BUY IT!

Sometimes it’s a wonder our kids can even summon up a smile - after thirteen years of school, they emerge into a world where 25.5% of 15 to 19 year olds and 13% of 20 to 24 year olds are unemployed. Tertiary education? There’s just the small matter of 5 to 10 thousand dollars a year in fees to find, 100 dollars a week for a flat and maybe another 100 a week for some very basic living costs. Even finding a part time job to help pay their own way and reduce the reliance on a student loan is tough - the latest Statistics New Zealand figures show that not only are there 175,00 people unemployed in New Zealand, there are 113,000 who are looking for more hours. It’s easy to look at our kids when they’re out wandering the streets at 2 o’clock on a Wednesday afternoon and think ‘lazy so and so, get a job’, but the reality is, it just isn’t that easy. At KYS we help young people develop their own pathways to employment. We provide a ‘wrap around’ service which helps them in coping with study stress, establishing career paths, identifying training opportunities, preparing CV’s and getting ready for interviews. Unconditional support for our young people - it’s what we do. We are extremely grateful to Peter Jackson Plumbing for funding the publication of this ad.

Promoting racing

The Melbourne Cup last week was a lot of fun for punters and a good reminder of how important the racing industry is to New Zealand’s economy. While there were no New Zealand-owned horses in the race, there were four bred here, all sired by champion stallion Zabeel. I recently I went on a regional tour in my role as Minister for Racing with Alan Jackson, new Chairman of the Racing Board, and the new Chief Executive Chris Baylis. We held three very worthwhile meetings with people involved at all levels of the industry, including people from Horowhenua who came to the Palmerston North function. Overall the racing industry contributes around $1.6 billion to the New Zealand economy and

Both men were farmers with strong community links and values. My deepest sympathies go to both their families. They were good men who will be greatly missed. employs around 17,000 people. The challenge for the new racing board and wider industry now is to implement a new strategy, lift returns back to the three codes and continue to build public appeal in racing. There is a lot of competition now for people’s discretionary spending, with lots of different entertainment options. Finally, I want to pay tribute to two pioneers from the Horowhenua district who have recently passed away: Collis Blake and Callum MacLean.

From my diary

■ Cabinet sat on Monday and Parliament is sitting this week. ■ Yesterday afternoon I attended the funeral of Levin farmer and philanthropist Collis Blake. ■ Tonight I am giving a speech in Wellington to a forestry industry group. ■ Tomorrow I’m hosting the Levin Junior Neighbourhood Support group on a visit to Parliament. ■ Friday is a busy day of electorate meetings in Kapiti and Horowhenua, and on the weekend I’m hoping to pop into the National Rose Show in Levin.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Flawed logic

I refer to the article ‘‘Guy defends expressway’’ (Nov 7). Nathan Guy is quoted as saying ‘‘. . . we finally have a decision on building the government-funded expressway . . .’’ I was not aware the Board of Inquiry had released its decision on the expressway. It does make me wonder about the independence of the board when Mr Guy makes statements like this. . Mr Guy is also quoted as saying ‘‘Locals want the Kapiti Expressway to start as soon as possible’’. Some locals do feel this way, but there are also many who do not. Mr Guy is also quoted as saying that the expressway has strong local support. He bases this statement on the fact that at the last election he campaigned strongly on the issue of the expressway and was re-elected. There are two flaws with this

logic. First, it does not necessarily follow that because Mr Guy was reelected his constituents support the expressway. Secondly, not all ‘‘locals’’ are in Mr Guy’s electorate. I live in the Mana electorate and Mr Guy is not my MP. The Summary of Submissions Report on the Environmental Protection Authority website (http:/ /www.epa.govt.nz/Publications/ M2PP Summary of Submissions Report — Sept 2012.pdf) states that of the 725 submissions it received, 56.3 per cent opposed the expressway in full or in part, and 41.7 per cent supported the expressway in full or in part. KATH SAINT Raumati Beach

Local opposition

I refer to Nathan Guy’s comments on the motorway through Kapiti (Kapiti News, Nov 7).

Mr Guy is misleading the public in presenting this as a done deal. The Board of Inquiry process begins on November 12 and a decision won’t be made until April next year. Many locals do not want the motorway ‘‘to start as soon as possible’’. The majority of submissions for the Board of Inquiry are opposed to the road. Mr Guy’s ‘‘traffic jams’’ between Paraparaumu and Waikanae have eased since the Waikanae rail station opened. There is no evidence for reduced congestion and quicker journeys Mr Guy refers to. Projects elsewhere indicate that congested areas remain and air quality continues to decline. A huge motorway would not be quicker; it’s a longer road than the existing highway. A benefit/cost ratio of a mere 0.2 means little economic benefit from a motorway, and declining traffic flows make it even less viable.

I strongly feel that Kapiti Coasters deserve better in the shape of a new road for Kapiti, not through Kapiti — perhaps similar to the Western Link Road, another road that Mr Guy used to support wholeheartedly. GRAHAM BATHGATE Raumati

Get basic facts right

It’s reassuring to see some things never change and Nathan Guy is still spouting forth a tirade of untruths regarding the expressway (KN 7/11). Nevertheless he should at least get the basic facts right. Ahead of the board of inquiry process, no decision has been made and Mr Guy is deliberately misleading the public in presenting this as a done deal. Locals do not want the expressway to start as soon as possible. The majority of

submissions received at the board of inquiry are still opposed to the road. The traffic jam Mr Guy talks of between Paraparaumu and Waikanae has largely disappeared since the Waikanae rail station was electrified. How often does Mr Guy make it home these days? There is no evidence for the reduced congestion and quicker journeys Mr Guy refers to in relation to the expressway. Other projects indicate that congested areas remain and air quality continues to decline. The new road would not be quicker and is actually longer than the existing highway. With a BCR of .2 there is no economic benefit from this road. When we asked about job creation we were told they counted people selling extra pies and ice creams to road workers as job creation.

VALERIE – Valerie Adams with Phil Gifford

Gifford and New Zealand’s golden girl, Valerie Adams thought they had the perfect ending to this autobiography but a drugs cheat almost ruined it. As it is, the saga around Valerie finally winning gold is just another remarkable story in a young life filled with many of them. Val pulls no punches when she talks of her relationships with her family, her coaches and her husband and she

doesn’t hold back either when it comes to her disdain for the management of the Olympic team. It’s not a moan or a grizzle - she’s just calling it like she sees it and you’d expect nothing less from this remarkable New Zealander. In a market that is saturated with bland airbrushed biographies of famous Kiwis, this one stands out for its honesty. Recommended.

STANDING IN ANOTHER MAN’S GRAVE – Ian Rankin

Five years after Ian Rankin retired his iconic, anachronistic detective, Rebus is back, working as a civilian in a cold case unit. He’s approached by the mother of a young woman who’s been missing since the Millennium Eve and she believes her daughter was just the first victim of a serial killer. She begs Rebus to help her find her daughter and the killer but Rebus is up against it. The

new police force has no time for Rebus’ old school detecting and he has Internal Affairs on his back who see danger in his odd relationship with mob boss Big Ger Rafferty. Rebus is a terrific character and the plot as always is strong but the ending lacked the punch I was hoping for. Still loved it though.

MRS QUEEN TAKES THE TRAIN – William Kuhn

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth is bored, restless and a little depressed. Even the yoga she has begun practising isn’t working its calming magic. She wonders if she’s getting too old for this ruling lark. One day, while visiting her favourite horse, a stable girl lends her a hoodie to protect her against the cold. The Queen realises she’s become anonymous and decides to go AWOL and head up to

TWO BROTHERS – Ben Elton

It’s inter-war Berlin and a new mother has just been told that although one of her twin boys was stillborn, there’s an orphaned baby boy who needs a mother. Frieda takes the baby into her arms and the boys from moment are brothers. The two boys, twins in all but blood, find their bond is stretched when they both fall in love with Dagmar, a spoiled Jewish princess, and then the Nazi Party takes

Her courtiers, the stable girl and a young man called Raj set off in pursuit of Her Majesty, desperate to bring her home before her walkabout becomes a national scandal.

Be positive about exercise

Often we have a negative view of exercise. If we constantly repeat those negative thoughts and comments about exercise we can almost hypnotise ourselves into believing that exercise is difficult or unenjoyable. This simply isn’t the case, and we need to change that view to positive thinking (the glass is half full, not half empty). Try this simple technique: when you have a negative thought about exercise, change that thought to a positive one and say it out loud, e.g. Negative thought — it’s too cold to exercise today, positive thought — that hot shower after I’ve worked out will be great! Or Negative thought — I hate my feeling my bits wobbling on the treadmill, Positive thought — that wobbling will help me get into that summer dress and I really want to look good in that summer dress! Say it out loud summer dress!

summer dress! summer dress! Continue to do this every time you have a negative thought about exercise and soon enough you will start to believe that exercise leads to positive experiences. Keeping hold of positive thoughts about exercise will help to motivate you, lead to an improved experience in the short term, and make it easier for you to maintain your exercise regime in the long term. Remember exercise is for life, not just for Christmas! Reinforce the message that you really enjoy exercise, you enjoy the feeling you get from from the physical and mental release, and before you know it exercise will be an integral part of you life.

My hubby hates it how I have to “touch everything” when I go clothes shopping

Mine’s the same! He just stands at the door and looks – if he can’t see it, it doesn’t exist!

WE WANT YOU: Local motorcyclists are encouraged to join the White Ribbon Motorcycle Ride when it comes to Kapiti. Photo: CCN081112SPLriders

Men called to join ride

Kapiti anti-violence organisations are calling for local men to ‘‘leather up’’ and ride with the annual White Ribbon Motorcycle Ride when it rolls into Paraparaumu on Tuesday, November 20. The ride, organised by the Families Commission, forms part of the November White Ribbon Campaign to raise awareness of, and support for, local anti-violence initiatives, specifically ending violence towards women. ‘‘This is a fantastic opportunity for Kapiti men to stand up and show they’re man enough to stop violence towards women,’’ says community social worker Ross McCracken. ‘‘We want attitudes to change and our local men to lead this charge. ‘‘The ride is an opportunity to start conversations and to hear from men who are passionate about ending violence. We can’t wait to hear their stories.’’ The riders are led by the Patriots Defence Force Motorcycle Club (made up of former and current members of the armed services) and Te Ahi Kikoha, (a Maori organisation of anti-violence campaigners). The ride began in 2009 and now reaches more than 80 communities during November. It will pass through Kapiti on a ride that covers some 5000 kilometres from Bluff to Whangarei.

E: info@courtenayhearing.co.nz www.courtenayhearing.co.nz

Families Commission White Ribbon campaign manager Rob McCann said the organisation wanted men to take action. ‘‘That can be as simple as men listening and taking seriously, stories of violence. ‘‘But we also need to influence the men around us by making it known that we will not condone or remain silent about violent behaviour. ‘‘An easy way to do that is to wear a White Ribbon. ‘‘The White Ribbon Campaign and the ride are a chance to hear from men who have rejected violence, and want to share their messages of love and respect. ‘‘It’s a very powerful combination when delivered by tough-looking guys who have served New Zealand, often in dangerous situations as peacekeepers in war zones. Now these men want to bring peace to our own back yard.’’ Anyone can join the ride providing they have a current licence, a warranted bike with a minimum engine size of 250cc and are willing to make the pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence towards women. Local riders can join the ride or escort the riders into and out of Kapiti.

Pupils prepare for Ellerslie show ■

David Haxton

Design work for Raumati South School’s garden entry in next year’s Ellerslie International Garden Show is underway. For example, Room 17 students have been creating a number of recyclable water sculpture designs mainly using plastic. ‘‘We’re going to take the best parts and build a really cool one,’’ 9-year-old Josh Tristram said. Josh has created an Ellerslie blog regarding the school’s planning which can be read via www.raumatisouth.school.nz Meanwhile plant sale proceeds from the school’s gala on Saturday from 10am to 2pm will go towards the fundraising effort needed for the flower show. ‘‘We would really like to thank Harrisons Garden World, Livingstone Gardens, Lynwood Nursery, Kapiti Nursery, Palmers Gardenworld and Gus Evans for our natives and other plants,’’ teacher Michael Stewart said.

‘‘And special thanks to Carolyn Tristram who has sold over $400 worth of tomato and chilli plants. ‘‘These plants are still for sale at the gala — five for $10.’’ Mr Stewart said the school also needed low growing succulents for the garden’s green roof. People can donate any succulents at the gala. And people can sponsor a brick which will help create a keyhole garden which is part of the wider garden design. Each sponsored brick will have the sponsor’s name inscribed on it. ‘‘We already have the bricks donated in Christchurch,’’ Mr Stewart said. And proceeds from a sausage sizzle at Mitre 10 MEGA on Saturday, December 15, will go into the fundraising account.

Fireworks fun

The weather was chilly but that didn’t stop 2000 people attending the Kenakena Fireworks Fantasia on Saturday. The crowd enjoyed performances from local bands, musical theatre and kapa haka, face painting, rides, an army-style assault course, pedal boats and food before the spectacular firework display at 9pm. Organisers say the alcohol-free event went smoothly, thanks to the volunteer army of security staff from the school, community and Kapiti Pak ‘n Save. The Fireworks Fantasia is Kenakena School’s main fundraiser each year.

Otaki College catering teacher Benita de Kock says owing to the kitchens being out of operation for 12 weeks, she was left with about 20 assessments to do by the end of term, so she combined cooking and service in this treat for the staff. ‘‘I had to assess service to the table, service in the kitchen, plating up and presentation, as well as some cooking elements,’’ she says. ‘‘They completed their written assessments yesterday. ‘‘In addition they had to know how to serve non-alcoholic drinks as well as tea and coffee, and know how to confirm orders from the customers for the kitchen and make sure the right order gets to the right person.’’ The menu offered mussels au gratin followed by pork schnitzel and salad with a choice of orange or cranberry juices, and tea or plunger coffee. The waitresses served three guests each and were very professional and attended to

even small details. Dishes were attractively presented and the food beautifully cooked — some guests opting to save part of their main course to take home for supper. Perhaps it was fortunate for the staff that the units for cooking pork and seafood had been delayed, as it made a great end-ofterm repast.

If you’re a young person who needs a bit of help with career planning, then have a chat to Briar Gallagher. Briar is a social worker/youth coach at Kapiti Youth Support (KYS). She’s been working there for five years. Her role as a social worker involves connecting young people with services at KYS as well as other organisations and people within the community. However, her key focus is youth coaching — especially for young people not involved in education, employment and training. ‘‘My role now is really about helping these young people find what their dream in life is, helping set some goals, some future planning and then creating a pathway towards that.’’ She loves finding what the young person’s big dream is and then helping create a realistic plan and connecting them with the education/training options and opportunities available in the community. She really enjoys helping young people broaden their horizons, especially careerwise. ‘‘There are some amazing resources out there to help young people find out what is available to them. ‘‘If you have a bigger dream then sometimes it makes the other stuff easier.’’ She said a big challenge for young people in the community was to find work. ‘‘I would love to put the call out there to employers to take a risk on a young person and that I’m here to help the young person work through the challenges as well. ‘‘It’s a risk for employers, especially in these financially tight times, but young people are our future and we need to support them to grow.’’ Briar, who is in the final stages of completing a masters degree in social work, loves working at KYS.

Sara is a 49 year old lady who has suffered from chronic pain for many years. When I first reviewed her several years ago she was unable to walk without significant pain. A diagnosis of hip impingement syndrome and she had an arthroscopic hip operation which relieved her right hip pain significantly. She had similar symptoms on the left hip and an operation helped her symptoms on the left side. She was able to walk and over the next year noticed the pain around her hip joints had decreased but she started experiencing pain in the lower back.

and advice can be given to protect the disc and prevent any further narrowing of this disc. Repeat X- rays can also be taken at intervals to ensure the vertebra does not slip further. The value of comparing new X-rays to old X- rays is priceless in making a diagnosis.

Sara noticed activities such as bending, lifting and twisting aggravated her symptoms. Examination revealed some tenderness over the low back with pain on movement of the lower back. An X-ray was ordered to exclude the low back as a source of her current symptoms. An X-ray of the low back was taken in 2012, it is shown here. Fortunately an X-ray was also available from 2005 for comparison. The X-ray on the right shows that there has been a forward shift of the L4 vertebra on the L5 vertebra as well as disc narrowing between both of these vertebrae. The L4 disc is usually the tallest disc and has narrowed approximately 20%. A disc often narrows once it has been damaged but the process of disc narrowing often takes several years once it has been damaged and does not show on early X rays.

Vitamin C: The Collagen Builder O John Arts Most households will have vitamin C in their medicine cupboards. Vitamin C is the body’s great general purpose antioxidant. It is the foot soldiers that help the elite special antioxidant forces to function properly. Like all antioxidants, vitamin C is able to switch between its oxidised form, where it loses an electron, to its reduced form where it gains an electron. This ability to add and lose electrons makes vitamin C play a critical role in the body. Its main role is to help the formation and structure of collagen. This is a protein widely distributed in connective tissue. Collagen is extremely important in forming the collagen webbing that gives structure to blood vessels. A low level of vitamin C is disastrous for those with circulatory disease and is often the cause of premature skin aging. The recommended daily intake (RDI) for vitamin C is a ridiculously low 60mg. This may prevent scurvy but is totally inadequate for optimum health. Collagen can only be properly formed with plenty of vitamin C. The result is strong yet supple blood vessels that allow unhindered blood flow causing less stress to heart muscle and the smooth muscle that lines our blood vessels and glands. Vitamin C’s ability to share electrons maintains the stability of other antioxidants especially our in-built antioxidant enzymes. Insufficient vitamin C not only removes one vital cell protector it also disables these

enzymes which are arguably the most important defences against free radical damage. The big debate is whether vitamin C can help colds and flu. The answer is we really don’t know but white blood cells called neutrophils have a high requirement for vitamin C possibly to aid in fighting infections. I normally suggest doubling daily doses during illness. Vitamin C is needed to absorb non-meat iron and should always be taken with iron supplements.

TOP CHEFS: Cameron Scott, Renee Lawton and Mardi Golding are this year’s top cooks in the Home Economics groups at Paraparaumu College. On Thursday they were presented with their aprons, certificates and cookbooks at the Year 10 Photo: Ann Reading / CCN091112ARcooks assembly.

A diet high in vitamin C rich fruits, berries and vegetables should provide 200-500mg of vitamin C daily. To this I recommend another 500-1000mg daily. When supplementing, I prefer the soluble powders combined with bioflavonoids so you can make up a drink then sip it during the day thus spreading the dose. While my daily multi has enough vitamin C to prevent deficiency I always recommend a little extra. This is one nutrient where a little more is always better than a little less. Give me a call if you need help.

College cookings

Creme de la creme For their final assessment of the year, all Paraparaumu College Year 10 Home Economics cooking students, in groups of 3-5, had to prepare a three-course meal and present it in MasterChef style. Kapiti News reporter Ann Reading was an invited judge. Her verdict was that, for choice, presentation and taste, it was very hard to choose among the top three. Cameron Scott’s group menu was garlic prawns, baconwrapped stuffed chicken breast and roast vegetables, followed by panna cotta with strawberry and blueberry sauce. Renee Lawton’s group went for cream of pumpkin soup accompanied by home-made bread rolls (an artistic twist), stuffed chicken breast with spinach sauce and trifle, which was presented in a glass, showing the deconstructed elements. Madi Golding’s group had made a plaited breadstick to accompany a salsa, home-made chicken fettuccine with salad and a trifle in a sundae glass. The top cooks were assessed on leadership, organisation, attendance and cooking ability, as well as for the dish they created. Madi, in particular, was ‘‘involved in a bit of everything on the menu’’ as she did not always have a full group in the lead-up sessions.

Close to home formula a sellout A book of children’s stories set in Kapiti has almost sold out, a week after it was launched. Shortz, a collection of children’s stories, produced by Kapiti writers has proved so popular, the publishers are considering another print run. The book was self-published by the Kapiti Children’s Writers Group, a collective of six local writers. Group spokeswoman Anne Ingram says they’re ‘‘absolutely stunned’’ at the demand. ‘‘We had 500 copies printed, which we thought was quite ambitious, but almost our entire stock has sold. ‘‘The popularity of the book has far exceeded our expectations.’’ Shortz is a collection of 21 stories by local authors, selected from 50 submissions received. The book was published with the help of a Creative Communities grant and was the group’s first project. Mrs Ingram says Shortz is aimed at 8 to 12-year-olds and features stories that will appeal to both boys and girls. ‘‘Children love reading stories set in places they know and our beaches, as well as iconic Kapiti locations, feature widely. ‘‘There are stories about a mermaid, a taniwha, a sea rescue, bikes and helicopters and a prank that goes badly wrong.’’ Shortz showcases the work of a talented illustrator, 15-year-old Celeste Fontein. The book is being sold through Paper Plus, Access Radio and Take Note in Waikanae. Mrs Ingram says copies are still available but orders will be taken if stocks run out as the group considers whether to do another print run.

The Dressing Room A fresh look in fashion has arrived on the Kapiti Coast with fashion retailer Judy Newman who moved “lock, stock and barrel” from Marlborough. Judy has opened her fashion store, The Dressing Room, on street level in the Pier Apartments complex on Marine Parade. She settled on the upmarket site after scouting round the North Island for a suitable place to bring her business – stock, elegant shop fittings and her personal experience in catering to her fashion-buying clientele. “The search was about finding the right location in the right time. And because I was introducing brands I had to find a place where the majority of those brands were not already being sold.” Many of those brands are New Zealand designed and made – an important factor in Judy’s buying choices because they are of good quality and designed for the New Zealand body type. She also has her own label, which she is expanding, and which offers a basic range, complimentary to the brands she stocks. The Dressing Room caters for the dressy casual part of the fashion spectrum with dresses, tops, skirts and pants, and if you are shopping for a special occasion, put together an outfit,

add a little bit of clever accessorising and enjoy the result. Judy suggest you take your special occasion shoes when you go to try on fashions as it will make all the difference to your appearance. Judy has a love of colour, demonstrated in the colourful window displays and on the racks. By mixing and matching and teaming the fashions with your own wardrobe basics, you can create a new look for the new season while freshening up your existing wardrobe.

the prospect of meeting her new customers, who are already intoducing themselves to The Dressing Room shopping experience. The shop opens seven days so customers from the local area, weekday commuters to Wellington and out-of-town visitors will all have the opportunity to visit. “Come on in and take a look and try on some of the fashions. I’m sure you’ll find something to please, and I am just here to advise – not to pressure you.”

She has a preference for natural fabrics such as linen,but appreciates that not everyone enjoys the ironing associated with linen so has included easy-care fabrics in the range

Judy Newman

There is fashion for all ages in sizes eight through to 20 depending on the brands. Judy says since many of the designs are New Zealandmade, Kiwi girls often find they can go down a dress size. She has been a women’s fashion retailer for five years and finds it exciting to be part of the fashion industry. Just as exciting is

The Dressing Room is on the Marine Parade side of the Pier Apartments, right next to 180 Degrees Restaurant.

Roadshow rolls in Back by popular demand, Curiosity Roadshow showcases weird and wonderful curios in Wellington’s version of the Antiques Roadshow. Dust off that vase that’s been sitting on your shelf for an age. Pull that unusual painting off the wall or grab that old, slightly creepy-looking china doll and bring it to the Museum of Wellington City & Sea on Saturday, November 17. From 1.30 to 3.30pm experts Simon Manchester, Peter Wedde, and Warren Feeney will appraise your curio. Is it worth something? Does it tell a story? Is it just fabulously unique? Book in your object for an appraisal — or come along to see what significant artefacts are uncovered. ‘‘This is the third time we have run Curiosity Roadshow and it’s proved so popular that we have put a booking system in place. We enjoy hearing the personal stories behind the objects and discovering our capital city’s hidden treasures,’’ says Museums Wellington director Brett Mason. The expert appraisal event runs from 1.30 to 3.30pm, however there are more events on the day that are well worth a visit. Marvel at the Wellington Classic Motorcycle Club’s display of machinery.

Author Linda Chamberlain-Gill will be promoting her book Lifestyle Block at the Manakau School gala in Mokena Kohere St, Manakau Village, on Sunday, November 18. ‘‘I will be there from 11am until 2pm. I will perform two readings from the book at approx 11.30am and 1pm. I will also be personally signing books on request.’’ The Lifestyle Block is a children’s reader suitable for age eight and upwards. It has eight chapters and 22 colour illustrations, and also contains educational facts relating to the story. It is based on the lifestyle of Ms Gill’s three dogs on their 10-acre block. ‘‘So join them on their zany adventures as they meet up with some of the most unlikely of characters, much to Gally’s delight and Bruno’s dismay, while Sanchez tries his best to hold down the fort.’’

THE DOGGIES: Relaxed and listening.

Intouchables depicts an unlikely camaraderie rooted in honesty and humour between two individuals who, on the surface, would seem to have nothing in common. Directed by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, the film was nominated for a total of nine 2012 Cesar Awards, France’s equivalent to the Oscars — including Best Picture. It won Best Actor for breakout star Omar Sy, and won the Grand Prize at the 2011 Tokyo International Film Festival.

Joys of Christmas

8945974AA

Supported by the

A Christmas family reunion in an English home, complete with log fire, provides the background for the Kapiti playhouse production of Season’s Greetings, starting on Thursday, November 15. Sir Alan Ayckbourn’s play is regarded a Christmas classic and, by coincidence, director of this production Mary-Anne Kindell met the playwright while attending a theatrical performance in the UK. She describes him as a humble but talented man which is quite an accolade for a person who is thought to be the most performed living playwright in the world. For this play, Ayckbourn wanted to write about log fires, Christmas trees, excited children’s faces, candlelight, the holly and the mistletoe. The play has all of those things. However, the little children are never seen. Instead it’s the older kids, between 20 and 70, who are depicted fighting over the toys, clamouring for attention, bullying, sneaking, crying, kissing and making up and getting

overexcited. His plays are regarded as great depictions of slices of real life and many in the audiences either identify directly with one of the characters or have relatives or friends who do. The cast comprises some well-seasoned performers joined by some newcomers to theatre in Kapiti. This is the first production to be directed by Mary-Anne Kindell but she is a long-time theatre person with virtually all the other roles under her belt. She made her acting debut for Kapiti Players (later renamed Kapiti Playhouse) in 1986. ■ WHEN: Thursday to Saturday, November 15 to 24 at 8pm. WHERE: Kapiti Playhouse Ruahine St, Paraparaumu. BOOKINGS: via the Internet www.kapitiplayouse.org, nz/bookings or by phone to 0508-Iticket. Further information from Ron Wilkinson (04) 902 8097

FILM REVIEW DELICACY

Cast: Audrey Tautou, Francois Damiens Director: David and Stephane Foenkinos Running time: 110 mins Rating: M (Contains offensive language) Reviewed by Francesca Rudkin A simple and sweet story of love lost and found, Delicacy has all the charm you’d expect from a French romantic comedy staring Audrey Tautou. Based on the novel by David Foenkinos, who also codirected with his brother Stephane, it’s a gentle story with a kooky sense of humour, based on the observation that you can’t always control who you fall in love with. Tautou is the perfect French woman; beautiful, petite and smart, it’s easy to see why all the men in this film swoon over her. Francois (Pio Marmai), her

equally beautiful husband, is the first, but is quickly dispatched in a tragic accident — there’s no room for perfect Parisian couples here. Drowning in her grief, Natalie retreats from the world, pouring all her energy into her job. Her smitten boss (Bruno Todeschini) tries hard to seduce her, but she rejects his advances.

Then, in the film’s one and only unpredictable act, a gangly, plain, Swedish giant with a lovely sense of humour and a heart of gold catches her eye. Much to the amazement of their colleagues and friends the two strike up a friendship, and Natalie gradually begins to live her life again. Tautou is adorable, alluring and a touch dreamy, but it’s Francois Damiens as Markus the Swede who makes this comedy interesting. It’s an unlikely romance, and Damiens does a lovely job of convincing both Natalie and us that Markus isn’t out of her league. Though Delicacy has some moments of great sadness and genuine sweetness, it offers few surprises. It delivers the familiar whimsical tone of French romantic comedy and the considerable charm of its leading lady. For many of us that will be just enough. ★★★

CRIME Working Together To Keep

• By Kate Spencer

Communities

SAFE

The Kapiti Neighbourhood Support is an organisation that helps keep our homes, our streets and our communities safer and more caring places in which to live.

“We are all part of making our homes places where we feel connected and secure. Kapiti Neighbourhood Support and Community Patrols work with our Police to help keep our communities safe.” A strong Neighbourhood Support group encourages neighbours to talk to each other and share information that will help reduce the risk and fear of crime. The group helps to foster a sense of community spirit, where everyone is respected and everyone is valued. “The idea is very simple. If we help each other we will be safer,” explains Community Sergeant Jackie Muir. “A community with a Neighbourhood Support Group is statistically less likely to have crime and is more prepared for

a civil emergency.”

safe.

In the event of a Civil Defence emergency the Neighbourhood Support network will be working with Civil Defence to get help to those who need it as quickly as possible. It will also help provide support for your community to be prepared and work together in an emergency.

“We find the community patrols extremely valuable, and they have been instrumental in making arrests,” says Jackie. “We give them information of where incidents are happening in the area and they send patrols to those areas. The volunteers act as extra eyes and ears for the police and patrol the streets at night, aiming to detect, deter and deny any unlawful activity and assist people in trouble. We cannot do this alone.”

“If an emergency happens at your home the first person on the scene is very likely to be your neighbour,” says Monica Steele, Kapiti Neighbourhood Support Coordinator. “Whether it is a fire, burglary, flood or any number of unfortunate things that can happen to our homes the nearest support is just next door. If you don’t know your neighbour there was never a better time to start to get to know them than now.” Community Patrols of New Zealand are a dedicated group of volunteers who work in partnership with the New Zealand Police and Neighbourhood Support to keep our community

If you would like to have a Neighbourhood Support Group in your street then please get in touch with Monica at nskapiti@ safercommunity.org.nz or phone 04 298 7435.

To be part of a Community Patrol, contact Kapiti Community Constable: 04-2966800 or Waikanae Community Constable: 04-2961590, weekdays between 10am and 4pm.

New product fundraiser for charity

8966981AA

Whittaker’s presented a cheque for $70,816.80 to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation — almost triple the amount it pledged to raise, with Whittaker’s new white raspberry chocolate becoming its most successful new product ever launched. Whittaker’s developed white raspberry chocolate especially for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and, as a community sponsor, pledged to raise at least $25,000 by donating 20 cents from every block sold during the month. Whittaker’s brand manager Holly Whittaker said the company was excited to be making the much

larger than expected donation to such a worthy cause. She put the initiative’s success down to loyal customers keen to play their part in donating to the charity, a quality product, and a great idea by five school students. ‘‘The idea came from five Samuel Marsden School students participating in the Young Enterprise Scheme as the company Pink, who approached Whittaker’s to see if it was possible to do something pink with chocolate to raise money for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation. ‘‘It’s been a delight to work with the students, and we’re very pleased

House move ‘amazing job’

Residents in Paekakariki have witnessed the challenging and detailed art of house moving. House removal company Brittens moved a house, owned by Shane and Sophie Willis, onto a section in Tilley Rd. Local resident Sue Sparks said the move was very interesting. She said the bottom storey of the two-storey house was moved onto site using tracks to get up the drive. And then the top storey was moved in two pieces by a very large crane,. ‘‘It had to be lifted from the road and up over some big trees to sit on top of the lower storey. ‘‘It was amazing to watch how precisely all the pieces matched. ‘‘Amazing job by all concerned.’’

Now it’s a tui who needs Molly

They say that lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place — but for Molly Marshall, it does. Only in her case it is damaged birds. Here is the story in her own words.

Here is an extension to the story published in Kapiti News last week, Molly Goes to birds’ rescue. I got to see Harley again when for a third week in a row, I rescued a bird from the road. On Thursday it was a tui. I’m very spiritual so three times to me is an omen. I still had the cage in my car (now permanently living in my boot). As I drove my daughter to school that morning, early to perform powhiri at Kena Kena primary, I noticed on the side of the road a tui sitting, just sitting. It looked out of place and I thought to myself, ‘‘If it’s still there when I return I’ll check out if it’s ok.’’ So on my return, sure enough it was still sitting there. It was near where the tragic fatalities have occurred by the Otaihanga turn off from SH1. I parked the car with hazard lights, on terrified I was going to scare the poor thing into the line of traffic, but as I approached the tui, I noticed its eyes were closed, that was until I reached down and

picked it up. The tui was startled but other than getting his claws getting a bit tangled in my long hair, it was relatively easy to put into the cage and transport it to the loving and knowledgeable care of

the Waikanae SPCA. The tui received such wonderful care from Kapiti SPCA manager Peter McCallum. He put the bird in a larger cage and created a perch for it from a twig he found outside, then again

outside he found green food which he picked for the tui then left it to rest after showing me. He told me he’d checked the tui over, no broken bones or wings, he’d probably been clipped by a car. He would give the bird some rest, food and sugar water and then release it back where I told him I’d found it. While I was there, Tracey Jong showed me Harley and his new cage mate. She informed me that now that he was somewhat older, he is in fact a blackbird baby not a thrush baby like his cage mate as she had first thought, the difference being in leg colour. Anyway, I thought this was really funny. I went back down a few hours later with my camera to get photos of Harley (I’m a student photographer — birds are my specialty) and hoped to get photos of the tui as well, but I was told Peter had already released him. Happy end. I drove away from the SPCA with a sense of great comfort, aware of the wonderful work that they do .

Anna Barry has been named Kapiti College dux for 2012. She was first in French and chemistry as well as achieving distinction in calculus and biology. She won the W B Campbell award for senior science and the Jared Martin trophy for dux. Anna was offered scholarships by Victoria Canterbury and Otago, but is off to Otago next year, taking up a scholarship worth $30,000 over three years. Sally Brady, who excels in drama and singing, was named Arts Person of the Year. She was part of the Jazz Choir which went to the World Choir Games in Cincinnati Ohio this year and secured two silver medals. She is in the Girls’ Chorus barbershop, which placed third at the secondary school barbershop nationals this year. She directed a piece for the Shakespeare in Schools competition which won the regional competition and was selected for nationals. At the nationals, she was selected among the top group of actors to a weeklong training and selection process last holidays and has been chosen to travel to the Globe in London next year. Charles Salmon was the top Year 12 student. He has already completed the requirements for Level 3 and qualified for university and is entered for two Scholarship subjects this year. He has sat two university papers in mathematics during the year. Katie Smith received Elli’s Trophy for her outstanding humanitarian service. She was the key organiser in the World Vision Famine campaign this year, raising $4000 of the $22,000 total. Last Christmas, she went to Mali as one of three World Vision Youth Ambassadors and came back fired up to make a difference. Georgia Groen was Sportsperson of the Year. She is World Junior Barefoot Waterski Champion and took bronze in the Open Women, setting records along the way.

Know your property investment goals Investing in property is a big step for many, dealing with tenants, taking on extra debt, what to buy, where to buy, when to buy, what loan structures to have and what ownership identity to buy with. If you are a potential property investor, have you addressed these challenges? Some people become ‘‘accidental landlords’’ because they cannot sell their existing home and want to buy somewhere else. They forget that their current home may not stack up as a good rental investment. So try to become a property investor by choice rather than

necessity if you can. Knowing what your longterm goals are is a good place to start. Do you want to keep growing an investment property portfolio and be doing it fulltime one day, or just have one or two rental properties as a side investment? Your borrowing power with the bank could influence this goal, but this goal affects the type of properties

you buy and how you buy so it’s the first thing to consider. Do you want to buy in good locations for capital gain, but possibly lower return? Or do you buy in less desirable locations where capital gain is normally slower but rental return is usually higher, thus giving a better cashflow? For example, you might pay $285,000 for a two-bedroom semidetached property in Johnsonville where capital growth over the years has been good but rental income may only be $280 per week. Alternatively you could pay $285,000 for a three-bedroom

property in Paraparaumu where growth has been conservative and pull in maybe $360 per week in rent, thus providing better cashflow and return. This is one of the dilemmas that every property investor faces on a daily basis. Personally I like to try to get a combination of both (easier said than done!). If good cashflow and higher return is the key factor for you rather than location, will you consider buying outside where you live as part of your property goals? For example, I have Australian clients with properties in Whanganui, Rotorua, Whakatane

and Kawerau because returns are high compared with purchase costs. You may also have goals relating to size and type of property, for example it must be three-bedroom, must be close to transport, fullyfenced and near good schools. Next time we will work out how to calculate the return on your rental property. ■ For a free copy of our First Home Buyer Guide contact our team seven days on 0800 000 517 or email craig@craigpope.co.nz for all your mortgage and insurance needs.

Four Kapiti basketballers are on Basketball New Zealand’s radar. Amy Parker and Emily Teono are reserves for the Basketball New Zealand Koru tour for U16 girls. Jack Hughes-Richards, while not making the BBNZ U16 boys’ Koru team due to being ill at the time of the trials, impressed the coaching selection panel enough to invite him to be part of the squad and attend all koru training camps. Jacinta Beckley, 17, was invited to attend the BBNZ U20s women’s national team trials which were held in Auckland on October 27-28. Jacinta is now waiting to hear if she has been selected for the team. ‘‘We are all extremely proud of these players and know that the hard work and commitment these athletes are putting in is starting to paying off,’’ Kapiti Basketball Association director Angelo Robinson said. ‘‘They still have a long way to go and a lot to learn but with continued dedication and effort they will be able to achieve and fulfil their basketball goals and dreams.’’

SUNSHINE LAWNMOWING It’s a classic Kiwi competition - to have a lawn looking better than the neighbours. But let’s be honest, these days its’ becoming harder to find the time or even the energy to do more than just a quick run over the lawn on a Saturday. That’s where Sunshine Lawns come in. Sunshine Lawns are a local company who take as much pride in making your lawns look stunning as you do. The company has been around for 6 years now and in that time has truly built up a reputation for doing the job properly and at the right price. They cover the greater Kapiti Coast region from Paekakariki to Otaki. Chris took over the business from his brother and is keen to carry on the family tradition of quality personal service. That’s because they are a family run business, not a franchise. Chris has certainly taken the business by the horns though, using technology as well as hard work. Sunshine Lawns have upgraded their

systems to include a computerised accounts system. That means all jobs are computer scheduled and therefore can’t be overlooked or missed out. Chris prides himself on completing all jobs as they are scheduled – providing the weather cooperates. Check out the new website at www.sunshinelawnmowing.co.nz. Not only does it provide all the details of the services they offer but you can even pay for your lawns using your credit card – right there on their site! Sunshine Lawns will mow your pride and joy on a regular schedule to suit you. It can be weekly, fortnightly, three weekly or monthly. Or you can call Sunshine Lawns anytime to have them done casually.

pensioners and all quotes are free. The job done by Sunshine Lawns is completed on every occasion from start to finish. Chris will weed-eat the sections prior to mowing to make sure all edges are straight, mow with a catcher and then use a blower to make sure your drive and paths are left clean and clear. He will trim the trees and bushes if you want and take away all the clippings. So if you want your lawns to be the envy of the neighbours then give Sunshine Lawns a call, and keep an eye out for the bright red trailer with the sun on the sides. That’s Chris.

The ‘refer a friend’ discount with Sunshine Lawns means any new customers that come from a recommendation of an existing customer is entitled to a free mow! Conditions apply. Plus there’s discounts for

Otaki College lauds touch stars ■

53

Ann Reading

Otaki College punches above its weight in sport, with viceprincipal Andy Fraser singing his students’ praises. Morehu Connor-Phillips and Alana Fraser were nominated for Touch Player of the year, and won individual awards in the recent College Sport Wellington awards. ‘‘Morehu has been a talented player right through and had an incredibly successful touch season.’’ Mr Fraser said. ‘‘He plays touch locally for Nga Hapu Otaki, and more recently for Raukawa Te Runga. He was talent scouted at the recent Maori Touch Nationals as the most outstanding Maori athlete playing touch.’’ Morehu is a regular for Touch Kapiti-Horowhenua, and for the U17 mixed; was selected at the last NZ Youth Touch Nationals for the NZ U19 squad, also playing at open level for Touch KapitiHorowhenua mixed which took out the New Zealand title, ‘‘which is a pretty big thing given that we are probably the second to smallest province in terms of touch for the whole of New Zealand’’. Mr Fraser said, in his opinion, Morehu ‘‘is absolutely deserving of the Touch Player of the Year

title’’. He said it was disappointing that owing to injury and a buildup of fixtures in rugby, Morehu couldn’t make the trials in Auckland to cement his place in the U19s NZ Trans-Tasman team, ‘‘But he will certainly be a New Zealand touch player, we are quite certain of that.’’ Morehu has been spotted in rugby too, talent identified through the Hurricanes programme. He was noted in terms of New Zealand secondary schools and Barbarians teams and, though he didn’t make either of them, he was in the final group of players despite being in competition with players in first XV rugby in first divisions from big colleges all over New Zealand ‘‘while coming from a small college in about third division rugby so for him to stand out and get to that level is amazing’’. Mr Fraser described Alana

and was the selected MVP (most valuable player) for that tournament. Alana also came through the Nga Hapu Touch system and went to Maori nationals. In the past three years, she was named in the U15s tournament teams and last year was named in the U17s tournament team and talent identified through Maori touch. Locally, Alana plays for Touch Kapiti-Horowhenua, consistently representing them through all the age grades. She was captain of U15s and co-captain with Morehu Connor -Phillips of the U17s mixed. She also played for KapitiHorowhenua open women’s side at the nationals. She also plays netball for Kapiti

Fraser from year 11 as ‘‘another home-grown touch player’’ who was just 11 years old when she played her first nationals in the touch Kapiti-Horowhenua U21s side, so she ‘‘had a baptism of fire from a very early age’’. Over the past three years Alana has played for the New Zealand U15s; the following season captaining the NZ U15s. This year she made the NZ U17s. She cocaptained the side, went to the Australian nationals, played in the U19s nationals with that team

and for Horowhenua, is captain of Horowhenua U5s rep side and is captain of Otaki College senior netball team, which contested Lower North Island championships coming fourth in B division where she and four other girls from the team were named in the tournament team. She plays premier netball for Rahui in the team that took out the Manawatu first division championships. Mr Fraser said Alana ‘‘mixes it up with her academic work and has just completed her NCEA level 2 in her level 1 year’’. Alana was awarded Sportsperson of the Year at the college’s senior prizegiving for the third year running.

Marae visit helps kapa haka performance Te Horo School has created their first Kapa Haka Club which performed for the first time at the Kapiti Schools Kapa Haka Festival last week. Kylie Morete from Te Horo School committee said, ‘‘To help the children learn more about Maori culture and customs, a Marae Sleepover Experience was organised. ‘‘Matua Rangi Halbert who has been teaching kapa haka over the last few months took them through what was expected with the powhiri and how to correctly give each other a hongi before they went for their stay. ‘‘Thanks to parent Dion Hakaraia, the club was invited to spend the night at Dion’s marae, Tainui Marae on Convent Rd, Otaki. ‘‘The children, parents and teachers were formally welcomed then got to work practising their kapa haka. ‘‘One of the marae’s leaders, Rawiri, arrived later to to talk about the marae and its history. They then spent more time practising that night and the next morning before it was back to school.’’
