It’s mainly the sentimental things, my computer has all my photos and stuff on it, I may never see them again

Over the edge By Nikki Papatsoumas Some Kingston residents are coming to terms with the fact they may never be able to enter their home again. On Saturday June 2 residents were evacuated from their homes on Priscilla Crescent in Kingston, after

a slip came away from underneath their houses. The worst affected house, at 37 Priscilla Street, is now hanging on the edge of a cliff. The house which is three stories high had nine tenants living inside. Continued on page 2. PHOTO CREDIT: Bryan Pepperell

Landslide has lasting effect Continued from page 1. By Nikki Papatsoumas Alysha Akula was a tenant at the house and says she was awoken early in the morning and told to evacuate immediately. “I had no time to process anything or feel scared, auto pilot had kicked in. My realization was this is serious and I have to leave now.” Alysha, who is a university student, is about to start exams, but her notes and text books, along with the rest of her belongings, are trapped inside the house. “The reality is with the rain the house it still coming away and more of the house is exposed, we will probably never be allowed back in.” Alysha says now she wants to focus on remaining positive and says she is grateful of the support she has.

I had no time to process anything or feel scared, auto pilot had kicked in. My realization was this is serious and I have to leave now

“The sentimental stuff is upsetting but the best thing to do is focus on the good stuff because that’s what gets you through.” No one was hurt and everyone got out. You can’t put a price on people’s lives, everyone is safe and stuff is replaceable.” Quentin Maloney had only been living in the Priscilla Crescent home for five weeks when the landslide hit. Like Alysha, apart from a change of clothes, his wallet, and cellphone all of his possessions remain trapped within the house. “It’s mainly the sentimental things, my computer has all my photos and stuff on it.” Quentin is currently staying with his family in Island Bay, however council have offered him an apartment in town. Southern Ward Councillor Paul Eagle

says rights now it is about making sure the residents are well looked after. “I think we will see a lot of them move away from a shock, and I am expecting them to get upset now. “I am going to call a public meeting at some stage, and hope to get as many residents there as possible, and discuss how this will affect the community.” Southern Ward Councillor Bryan Pepperell says there are many unanswered questions as to what caused the land to slip. “There will need to be an independent factual investigation. The issue of slop stability has been raised and also how stable is the fill that these houses were built on. “There was a very long summer without rain and much of Wellington is without storm water.”

Airport runway a cause for concern? By Nikki Papatsoumas Last week the Hataitai Residents Association discussed Wellington City Council’s proposal to extend the airport runway into Evans Bay harbour. The meeting was attended by Eastern Ward Councillors Leonie Gill and Simon Marsh, as well as around 15 members of the community. Hataitai Resident Richard Randerson put forward the issue at the meeting, and says he believes they need to assess the extent of concern in the community surrounding the proposal. “That’s the first step, there’s no point in mounting a huge opposition if there isn’t one. I would like to hear from people who have a concern about it. “It’s a bit like running the flag up the

Richard Randerson

flag pole and seeing who else out there is concerned about this.” Mr Randerson put forward issues for consideration, including impact on the marine environment, and impact on residential properties in Hataitai, Miramar, Kilbirnie, Rongotai and Maupuia. He also raised the idea of extending the runway south, into the Cook Strait. Mr Randerson says the Hataitai Residents Association will not be taking a

position on the issue, but will continue to facilitate discussion within the community. Councillors assured the community there would be an opportunity for public consultation, and reminded them the project was still in very early stages. Anyone with similar concerns is welcome to contact Richard on randersonj@ paradise.net.nz

Helping babies for over 10 years By Nikki Papatsoumas Mrs Raewyn McLaren and her husband Ian McLaren have both received a Queen’s Service Medal for their services to foster care. Since 2001 the Island Bay residents have fostered 82 newborn babies for Child, Youth and Family. Mrs McLaren says she is glad they can finally tell family and friends about the honor. “It’s very exciting and I feel very honored. But we don’t like to receive these kinds of things.” Mrs McLaren says she decided to begin fostering babies after her eldest son finished school and began work. “I needed something to do after being a stay at home mum for 30 years, and I have always had a

inbriefnews

passion for little ones. “I have been able to offer my time and affection to little ones that have been less fortunate than my children.” She says her husband and four sons all were very supportive from the beginning, and have continued to help over the years. Mr and Mrs McLaren foster babies that are premature, or have health issues, as well as those who are up for adoption. They have fostered babies from as young as four hours old. Mr McLaren says the babies they fostered instantly become a Mrs Raewyn McLaren and her husband Ian McLaren part of the family. “When the time comes that “It’s part and parcel, we treat rest of their lives. them like ours and give them as Mrs McLaren says she will I am not able anymore I will much TLC as we can. I think it continue to foster babies in the know.” puts them in good stead for the immediate future.

Underground fibre optic cables for ultra-fast broadband (UFB) are being installed by Chorus in Thorndon and the central city, and that means there could be several worksites around town at any time. The work of installing UFB, by necessity, causes some inconvenience. Large holes on footpaths or in the road close to the kerb are required, and there will be some noise at times. The UFB programme is also under way in the northern suburbs. For more information go to call 0800 MY FIBRE.

Samoan Ambulance staff keep dry Ambulance staff in Samoa will no longer get drenched in storms thanks to a special donation of much-needed wet weather jackets. Two Wellington Free Ambulance paramedics and a Wellington doctor are heading to Samoa today to help equip and train paramedics there. They are also sending several hundred high visibility wet weather Wellington Free Ambulance jackets that the organisation no longer needs. Paramedics Byron Williams, Celeita Chippindale and Dr Rosy Fenwicke are all trustees in the Vivere Trust which they set up to help establish an ambulance service in Samoa. Mr Williams says Vivere is helping the Fire Authority in Samoa, who also run the ambulance service. “We are sending bandages, medical equipment and the special jackets donated by WFA. We are also going to spend a week training staff in some basic paramedic skills." Byron and Celeita, who are also partners, launched the Vivere charity after seeing the poor standards of pre-hospital care while holidaying in Samoa in 2011.

Byron says Vivere is the first Pacific charity devoted specifically to ambulance care rather than hospital aid. “Samoa has just two ambulances and a few fire trucks. The lack of medical training and basic equipment like stethoscopes is shocking. “It is all stuff we take for granted here in New Zealand. We spend about 20 to 40 hours a week on the charity and we are paying our own way to Samoa to train people." "When we were last in Samoa we realised that the Fire Authority staff weren't able to carry out some basic assessments like blood sugar levels.” “In Cyclone Evan at Christmas time the paramedics got drenched as they had limited wet weather gear. “They were working dressed in anything they could grab to keep the rain out such as a ten dollar yellow plastic poncho." The team will stay in Samoa for six days. Pictured Left: Wellington Free Ambulance paramedics Celeita Chippindale and Byron Williams. Byron wears one of the soon-to-be donated jackets.

By Nikki Papatsoumas Newtown is one step closer towards having its very own Cityhop car. Earlier this year the Cook Strait News spoke to Liz Springford from Berhampore, who was keen to see Newtown locals have access to a Cityhop car. Cityhop is a car share scheme that allows people to have access to a car when they need one, without the hassle of owning their own vehicle. The council is now consulting with the Newtown Residents’ Association and Newtown Business Group, after being asked to donate a car park to the pilot project. President of the Newtown Residents’ Association Martin Hanley says they are very keen to see Newtown be the very first suburb with its own Cityhop car. “It will lower congestion on the road, and make our streets safer. People will want to start cycling, and kids can start walking to school.” Council has offered a car parking

space in the Wilson Street car park, and Martin says they would perhaps like to see the car in a more prominent space, to help raise public awareness.

Both organisations have until June 15 to make to give feedback on the proposal. The council will then give a recommend a car parking space, to enable the project to go ahead.

Baby on a budget Congratulations you are having a baby. Excitement builds, plans start racing through your thoughts and before you know it your baby budget is exhausted. It’s true when people say that babies cost money, but it’s also true that they don’t need to cost too much. With careful planning and preparation it’s possible to have a baby on a budget, it’s just a matter of ‘thinking outside the square’. - Baby equipment: Yes, babies do need specific things when setting up a nursery but remember that you only need the essentials. Essentials include somewhere safe for your baby to sleep (bassinette or cot), some quality wraps for keeping your baby snug, a safety capsule for your car (an essential for leaving the hospital!), a pram or baby carrier to make getting around easier and a purpose built change table. Items such as nursery decals and other decorative additions are things you can add to your baby shower list for gift ideas! - Baby clothes: Shopping for babies is often more fun than shopping for yourself. So many cute things to buy.

Mostly babies only need the basics, so a staple supply of singlets, all-in-one suits, socks and a warm jacket and beanie and some back up changes for ‘accidents’ are all you really need. - Nutrition: The World Health Organisation recommends that babies are breast fed exclusively for the first six months of their lives. While the choice to breastfeed is a personal one, and is not easy for all mothers, on a purely budget-friendly basis breast is also best. Newborn babies feed approximately every three or four hours. That’s six or seven feeds a day. With formula costing between $20 40 per tin, and each tin anecdotally lasting around a week, you could be spending around $100 a month. Of course, that doesn’t take into consideration the upfront cost of bottles, teats, and sterilisers. The best tip for having a baby on a budget is to do your research. Put some time into finding out what you really need – and what you don’t – and you’ll find your dollar stretches much further.

MINUTES WITH: The Reverend Simon Winn All Saints Church Hataitai

Q A Q A Q A

What is your favourite food? I love seafood, but unfortunately my wife doesn’t.

What makes you smile? ‘Against the odds’ scenarios and witnessing the God of surprises at work in people’s lives.

What’s your pet hate? Passive aggressive behaviour and people not being direct and straight with me.

Q A Q A Q A

Your favoured holiday destination? For a decade our family holidayed in Perranuthnoe, a village in Cornwall, UK. We have great memories - it provided somewhere interesting to explore, sunshine and a beach on which cricket could be played.

What’s your favourite music? I love good music, but my preference is more at the ‘classical’ end: choral music down the centuries, be it Victoria, Purcell, Handel, Howells, Durufle or Eric Whitacre, inspires me.

What is one thing Cook Strait News readers would be surprised to know about you? I was once thrown out of a press conference with UK Prime Minister John Major.

Q A Q A Q A

Who would you invite to dinner? A mixed bunch for a stimulating evening: St Paul, Lawrence of Arabia, Harold Larwood, Richard Reynolds (my 16th century ancestor who was Sheriff of London), Oladuah Equiano, Barack Obama, and to add some glamour and brains, Queen Rania of Jordan.

What’s next on your wish list? A tidy study, and tickets to the 2013-14 Ashes series would be rather nice.

A saying you like to live by? Two quotes I have on my wall are by Joyce Rupp, “Every day is an adventure daring us to be more fully alive” and ‘I have come that you might have life, and have it to the full’ (Jesus in John 10:10)

Ray of light at the end of the tunnel “ It is something a little bit more

finite, we would rather have a date confirmed we consider achievable.

By Nikki Papatsoumas A firm date of August 9 has been set for the completion of the Bay Road Upgrade. Last week Mayor of Wellington Celia Wade Brown and Eastern Ward councillors Simon Marsh and Leonie Gill visited Bay Road businesses to deliver the news. A firm date was set after discussions with contractors and an agreement was signed. Councillor Simon Marsh says he can understand the stress felt by business owners. "I know what it feels like to wake up in the morning knowing that if you sell nothing you earn nothing, basi-

cally you eat what you kill.” He says he is thrilled to see a ray of light at the end of the tunnel. “It is something a little bit more finite, we would rather have a date confirmed we consider achievable.” He says council’s next focus is to look at ways they can promote

New classroom for Houghton Valley School By Nikki Papatsoumas Houghton Valley School students are pleased to have opened the doors to their brand new classroom. Ti Kouka, or room 6, has been open since the beginning of the term after two years in the pipeline. Classroom teacher Monica Mercury says it is great to be out of a much smaller classroom and into the brand new one. “Our roll has been growing so we have had a lot of junior

kids in the hall, and those extra classes have meant the hall has been out of action.” Ms Mercury has been one of the school’s longest serving teachers at the school having spent 16 years there. “It’s fantastic, I feel really honored to get the new room. It has been a really collaborative effort, everyone was amazing to work with. Principal Raewyn Watson says they are extremely happy to have the additional classroom.

“The school has previously resorted to using the precious assembly hall as a classroom when the roll numbers increased over a school year. “I've been really thrilled to be involved in the completion of this project knowing I don't have to take that action!” Ms Watson also says previous principal Barry Schon, worked tirelessly to get the approval for the classroom and thanks him for all his forethought and planning.

Young Champion

Wanaka Noanoa with Wellington City Councillor Paul Eagle

By Nikki Papatsoumas A local girl has been given the opportunity to take part in the Young Champions Programme. The programme is driven by Te Awe Maori Business Network, and sees Maori youth around Wellington placed with a mentor. The Ministry of Maori Development and the Port Nicholson Block Settlement trust are also involved in the initiative. Fifteen year old Wanaka Noanoa, who attends Wellington East Girls College, will be mentored by Wellington City Councillor Paul Eagle over the next seven months.

She will spend one Friday a month with him in the workplace where she will have the opportunity to see what it is like in a working environment. “It was a great opportunity to gain a realistic perspective of the work area. I get to be in an unfamiliar situation and environment that will pose new challenges. “It is giving me the chance to learn new skills and attributes I can take away and apply in normal life after school.” Last Friday was her first day spent on the programme, and alongside Mr Eagle Wanaka had the chance to meet with the

Wellington City Council Treaty Relations Team and Iwi members. Mr Eagle says he thinks the programme is a brilliant idea and a great opportunity for young Maori people. “I am really proud that I can help young Maori woman make connections and get ahead in life. I only wish I had something similar in my day. “I am looking forward to giving her a look at the different aspects of being a city councillor. I want her to see it’s not just about sitting around a table, it’s about meeting people and dealing with serious issues.”

Conjunctivitis is a common condition which can be encountered all year round. It is not just associated with spring and the hay fever season, but can also be seen in the colder winter months accompanying head colds and infections. The symptoms of conjunctivitis include red irritated eyes that may feel gritty, sore and uncomfortable. They can also be itchy, sticky and weepy. Conjunctivitis is caused by an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin membrane that protects the white of the eye and inside the eyelids. When you visit your pharmacy with these symptoms your Self Care pharmacist will ask questions to determine the cause of the conjunctivitis and will give you advice about which eye drops are most suitable for you. Causes of conjunctivitis can be divided into 3 groups as follows: 1) infection 2) allergy 3) irritant. 1) Infections can be caused by bacteria or viruses. These infections can be very contagious. Special care needs to be taken not to spread the infection to the other eye and to other people. The infection should clear within a week when left untreated. However the need for antibiotics for bacterial infections should be considered in certain circumstances, to prevent complications or to prevent the spread of infection to other people. The antibiotic Chloramphenicol is available from your Self Care Pharmacist and they can advise if this would be the most appropriate treatment for you.

Speak to us for your Self-care needs

2) Allergic conjunctivitis may be due to seasonal triggers such as pollens or may be from other elements that are around all year round such as house dust or pet fur. Antihistamine eye drops are useful in the treatment of allergic conjunctivitis for itchy and irritated red eyes as are oral antihistamines. It is a good idea to try to avoid the cause of an allergy as much as possible. 3) Irritant or chemical conjunctivitis can have a mechanical or chemical cause, such as foreign objects or chlorine from the swimming pool. This type of conjunctivitis usually clears when the cause is removed. If there is pain in your eye, or if your vision is affected, or your eyes are more sensitive to light than usual then your optometrist or doctor needs to be consulted. Other situations where your optometrist or doctor need to be consulted are for children under two years of age, contact lens wearers who have a greater risk of serious eye infections and if symptoms do not improve with treatment or worsen after a few days. Tips for general eye care for conjunctivitis include: Wash your hands before using eye drops and after touching your eyes Apply a warm flannel to the eye to clean away any discharge before instilling eye drops Apply normal saline to wash and soothe the eye/s twice daily Use lubricant eye drops 4 to 8 times daily to soothe eye/s Prevent the spread to other people by NOT

sharing face cloths, towels, make-up Do not share eye drops with other people Use the eye drops as directed and instil only the number of drops recommended Discard eye drops one month after opening the bottle Your Self Care pharmacist will be able to assist you to identify if you have conjunctivitis and recommend appropriate treatment.

Dojo joins the good fight for men's health

“Men are notoriously bad at looking after themselves.” Many of the dojo's members fall into the over-35 age bracket, when men are are advised to go for health check ups. The dojo encourages community members to come along tonight and Wednesday night to listen to doctors and personal trainers give helpful informative talks in a supportive environment. “Guys, come along and hear what we've got to say because we could make a difference,” says Alex. He says the dojo aims to grow the event next year and involve the local community much more. Come along tonight or Wednesday night at 6.15pm to Poneke Dojo, Prince of Wales Park, Salisbury Tce.

Lichtwark opts to play in Men’s grade By Charlene McKay Former Pulse captain Cushla Lichtwark has taken on a new challenge this year, playing goal keeper in the Men’s football league. Lichtwark, of Brooklyn, played for the Pulse from 2008 until 2011 and captained the team in 2009. Having retired from netball professionally she is now putting time into other sporting activities and when it comes to football, she has set the bar high. Last season Lichtwark represented the Capital side in the ASB National Women’s League. The team qualified for finals, but lost in the semis against Northern United, who went on to win the league. Before the season started this year she approached Capital Football to play in the men’s club league. She says this was so she could develop her game in a harder competition prior to the commencement of the Women’s National League. She started this season playing for Wellington United’s third team in Capital 2, but has recently made the move to Upper Hutt club to make the most of their one-on-one goalkeeper coaching. Last week she played a half game for Upper Hutt’s third team in Capital 4 and saved a penalty against Island Bay to help the team draw the game. She cannot guarantee she will play in the men’s grade every week, but she is in there with the other

keepers competing for game time. Lichtwark says she has found many differences playing in the men’s league. “The game is faster and the ball is coming at you harder. The men play more aggressively and also use more of an aerial game” She says there are skillful and good quality players in the women’s Central League, but the level across the grade is not the same as in a men’s grade. The 2013/2014 ASB Women’s National League will kick off later in the year. Lichtwark will be putting her hand up for the Capital side again, and will be sure to use her experiences from the men’s league come game time.

By Lydia Anderson Kyokushin Poneke Dojo members are speaking out on men's health to the Mt Cook and Newtown communities. The dojo is hosting two public seminar evenings this week with guest speakers as part of Men's Halth Week and hope to grow it as an annual event. Dojo president and shihan Alex Terris says he decided it was important for the dojo to partake in the national awareness week because it fits in with their focus on physical health. For Alex, who has been doing karate for more than 40 years, the importance of spreading the men's health message has really hit home. He says he has lost a few friends in the 50+ age group to early, preventable deaths.
