Escape, Indulge & Explore at this girls’ day out - for every woman Take time away from the daily duties of life, grab your girlfriends, and head to the Women’s Lifestyle Expo this weekend to spoil yourself, explore what’s on offer and indulge your senses at this girls’ day our for every women. The popular Women’s Lifestyle Expo returns to Wellington this weekend at the TSB Arena, Queens Wharf. Renee Murray from Peacock Promotions, organisers of the Expo, is looking forward to the expo this year and showing women so many great companies from both Wellington and around NZ in one place, under one roof for one weekend. “As busy women, we all have the day to day pressures of balancing our home and work lives or being a busy stay at home mum. Rarely is there any ‘me time’. The Expo allows you to shop, learn and laugh all while having fun with friends! Many women also visit the Expo

alone as they find it can be relaxing to browse at their own pace in their own time” Renee says there really is something there fo r eve r y woman and all ages too. “From handbags and jewellery to organic tea and gourmet food, health and fitness, and so much more, visitors won’t be disappointed at what they find. We expect thousands of visitors to the expo over the two days, with many then heading into town to continue their girls day out. This is a great event for the region. With everything to see and do, it’s no surprise the expo is now one of the largest in Wellington.”

New Companies Exhibit in 2014 Held annually for over fourteen years in Wellington the Women’s Lifestyle Expo continues to bring in new products for visitors to see and new companies to discover. There will be many new exhibitors at the 2014 Expo as well as some favourite exhibitors that visitors enjoy seeing every year like the always popular and famous Belgian truffle man. Goodness Me Gluten Free are a new exhibitor to the Expo who will travel from Tauranga to feature in the Expo Taste Zone promoting their cookbooks and doing live pasta making demos on their stand. Owners Mary & Vanessa Hudson are a mother and daughter team whose family first encountered the need to eat gluten free because of a Coeliac diagnosis more than 12 years ago. Being foodies at heart who loved baking they were not content to simply give up eating the things they had once enjoyed so they embarked on a quest to create delicious, satisfying, gluten free baked goods that are as much of a joy to cook as they are to eat. They decided that writing a cookbook was

the best way to share their secret blends and favourite recipes and the Goodness Me it’s Gluten Free Cookbook is the result. The newly released Goodness Me it’s Gluten Free PASTA cookbook will also be available for sale at a show. Another new exhibitor is entrepreneur Catherine Hunt from CatherineH Cosmetics who has recently created New Zealand’s only Makeup Sealant Spray. Having been passionate about makeup products for years Catherine thought one thing that needed to be improved was how long products would last as she was sick of having to touch up her makeup halfway through the day. Her research led her to create a unique miracle sealant spray which allows users to have a flawless face from morning to night. This amazing product works similar to how hairspray works for your hair, just a few sprays of this makeup sealant and your makeup won’t be going anywhere for at least ten hours. Catherine will have some great expo only deals on site so make sure you visit and see this miracle product for yourself.

Chiropractors from around Wellington are joining together to help promote spinal health. At the Wellington Womens Lifestyle Expo Chiropractors from Paraparaumu, Mana, Johnsonville, Miramar, Upper Hutt and the CBD are helping to educate women about what it is they do and how they can help people have healthier spines. Most people think that Chiropractors help people with back pain, neck pain and headaches. It is true that thousands of people across wellington are helped each week to have less back pain, move their neck better and/or reduce their

headaches. However, there are many other benefits to a healthier spine. The Chiropractors all believe that a large part of the population are unaware of the role they can play in improving their spinal health, so performing a public duty like this can help more people understand chiropractic. For many this may lead to them experiencing chiropractic themselves. If you want to talk to a chiropractor or have your neck checked by a Chiropractor, look out for them at the expo.

Come home, Rainbow By Sam Duff Flying the skies of the eastern suburbs, chilling out at Lyall Bay beach, or a potential sighting in Berhampore – where in the world is Rainbow Star? Miramar kids Griffin and Sylvie A’Court are sad that their pet cockatiel Rainbow has been missing for almost three months without returning home. Griffin, 6, says Rainbow, who lives in a garden Avery, is a lovely

bird that talks, sings and even snuggles. “My favourite thing that he does is sing ‘If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands’,” Griffin says. “I think he went above the clouds.” Sylvie, 8, says she would be very happy if Rainbow returned home. “I would probably have a welcome home party,” she says.

whenever they are held,” she says. Bobbi says the church is a great building which needs to be preserved. “It has got beautiful wood and lovely stain glass windows which are worth saving,” she says. “We often find people in there who don’t belong to the church but just want some quiet time.” Anybody can pay $25 to attend the event and bring pieces of nice clothing that they would like to swap for somebody else’s, Bobbi says. Any clothes that are not swapped on the day will be donated to Dress for Success, a charity that provides women with appropriate outfits for job interviews. Rosie’s Clothes Swap will be held at the Roseneath School/community hall on Saturday August 9 from 2pm till 5. Contact Bobbi on 9723464 for more information.

Come home, Rainbow By Sam Duff Sylvie says Rainbow would say hello and even mimic electrical noises such as phones. “For the first few days we missed our little echo,” she says. “He was very funny. “He used to stand on our heads.” Rebecca A’Court says her children really miss the grey cockatiel. “We’re surprised he hasn’t come back because he is really friendly,” she says. Rebecca says she and her children were away when her husband was feeding Rainbow and he decided to go on his little adventure. “He felt pretty bad about it.” The family had another cockatiel, Scott, who went missing for a similar amount of time before being found in Houghton Bay.

“When he came back he was so thin that I think his organs failed. “That’s why the kids are getting so panicky about Rainbow because it has been a similar amount of time.” Rebecca says that anybody who may have spotted Rainbow on his adventure should contact her on 0273863659.

FLYING HIGH: Griffin and Sylvie A’Court say their pet cockatiel Rainbow would talk and snuggle with them.

‘Sick and tired’ of poison’s use By Sam Duff A Brooklyn man says countless numbers of native birds such as tui, wax eyes and yellow hammers are being killed by a poison aimed at pests. Colin Tofts, who has spent many years arguing against the use of brodifacoum, says he has had enough of watching native animals suffer so is planning a move back to Marlborough later this year. The possum-catcher and pig hunter has lived near the Brooklyn wind turbine in an area known as Kerry’s Gully for 19 years. “At the end of the year I am packing up because I have had enough,” Colin says. “I just can’t be bothered anymore. I’m sick of seeing what this stuff is doing. I have had a gutsful.”

Colin says the Wellington Regional Council has used brodifacoum in the area since 2009 and few native birds are left because of its use. “It’s just sad what they’re doing,” he says. “Before all this hearing the birds singing on a nice day was lovely.” “Now they scream, bleed from the nose and their eyes water. Hearing them gasping for air is horrible.” Wel l i ng t on Reg ion a l Council biodiversity manager Davor Bejakovich says brodifacoum is just one of many tools it uses in pest management. “It is particularly suited to certain situations and is used in bait stations and around urban centres due to the relatively low risk it poses to domestic pets and the general public,” Davor

Winter boosts call numbers

says. “Brodifacoum is available to the public and widely used in rodent control products available in the supermarket chains under a variety of brand names. “It is worth mentioning that GWRC has a long history of sustainable and responsible past animal control in urban and suburban Wellington, which is widely supported by the public of the region.” Colin says the council do not pick up dead possums which means they rot when they could be sold for around $20 each. Colin says his working dog Tan died in 2010 after eating a possum, which had wandered on to his property and had rodenticide in its system. Tan had to be euthanised, Colin says. “It still upsets me to this day.”

Wellington Free Ambulance is being kept busy with an increase in call numbers during the winter months. Service delivery manager Rob Ives says paramedics attended 4,226 incidents around Greater Wellington and Wairarapa in June compared to 3,673 in February. “June through to August are typically our busiest months,” he says. We’ve taken on eight new staff in recent months.”

A group of students from South Wellington Intermediate School will be under the microscope when their every move is photographed for a research project. Researchers from Otago University are interested in learning about children’s safety and their surroundings for the Kid’s Cam project. Around 12 students from SWIS will wear lanyards with a small camera on them for four days with the cameras taking a photo every 10 seconds. Deputy principal Michael Stewart says he does not have any concerns about privacy. “We’re not going to use the photos, they will never be pub-

lished,” Michael says. “When they’re going to the toilet or having a shower they can turn it off. “The student is first to see all the photos and goes through every single photo and can delete any if they want to.” The project has been approved by the University of Otago Human Ethics Committee. “For the kids it’s a little bit of an enjoyable task,” Michael says. He says his class were involved in a trial run and those who could not take part were a little disappointed. “It’s quite exciting. It’s good for the kids.” The cameras will be cheap, small and disposable, Michael says.

Evan finishes July on top By Sam Duff A Mount Victoria resident has raised the largest amount of cash throughout New Zealand for Dry July. Evan took part in the fundraiser, which raises money for adults living with cancer, with the goal of raising $5000. “I had my moments, it wasn’t too bad really,” he says. “There were certainly times when I felt like a drink.” After a month staying off the booze, Evan, who runs a web company, raised almost $5,500. That is more than the 961 others taking part in Dry July throughout New Zealand. “It has been great to have had the support of friends and family,” he says. “It’s not about coming number one, it’s about raising as much money as possible.” Evan had his first drink with biking buddies on Friday evening when he says it was his shout. “I would encourage everybody to do

it. It’s an excellent cause.” Evan, whose daughter first suggested the idea to him, says his son helped him with a good social media campaign. Friends undergoing cancer treatment were part of the reason he took part in the challenge.

“Unfortunately I have lost friends to cancer, I have friends with it, and I have lost family members,” he says.  Visit www.nz.dryjuly.com for more information and find out how to donate.

Group reports back on cycle lanes A group of Wellingtonians have told the council there should be two cycle routes through Berhampore and Newtown. The citizens’ panel set-up by the council to share their thoughts on the proposed cycle-lanes has reported back. The 16-member panel toured the proposed routes and heard feedback from locals before submitting their report to council last week. The report says the panel favoured the two cycle-lanes because they complement each other. Routes via the Berhampore Golf Course and the outskirts of Martin Luckie Park were rejected because they were not direct enough. Concerns were raised about a route via the northern end of Rintoul Street because of bus safety. The panel also proposed several design features for the cycle-lanes and a possible third route. These included creating a two-way cycle path on flat sections, dual cycle lanes on both sides of the road on hills and reducing vehicle speed limits in some places. Councillor Andy Foster says council are determined to make the city more cycle friendly. “Doing that through neighbourhoods with busy, narrow roads is a challenging task,” he says. “The panel has done a great job of grappling with the transport, social and safety issues and suggesting the solutions they think are best.” Patrick Morgan from the Cycling Advocates Network has welcomed the report and says the cycle-lanes will be a historic step forward. “It's great to see the panel engaged with what all people need out of the route," he says. “They balanced connectivity, safety, convenience, and impact on the wider community.” The Wellington City Council Transport and Urban Development Committee will vote on the citizens’ report on August 21.

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: Where is the most exciting place you have travelled to and why?

“Rotorua in February with family and friends. I liked the skyline and bungee jump.”

“I would say the Phillipines. My wife comes from there. It’s a big vibrant Asian city.”

“Sri Lanka. The people are really friendly and it’s quite amazing.”

“Jamaica. I lived amongst Jamaicans and they were just lovely people. They were just so happy.”

“Barcelona because it’s quite different to New Zealand culture. Different language, different food.”

LETTERS to the editor Flyover decision a mistake

Dear Ed, The declining of the Basin flyover consent is a big mistake which Wellington will regret in years to come. Once again the vocal minority win. I have been a Wellingtonian for over 70 years. I really feel for those who have to come South at certain times of the day, for example to the airport and hospital. Neil Bognuda, Miramar (abridged)

Critical infrastructure for the capital

Dear Ed, It beggars belief that a quartet of old men can decline consent to this critically important part of the region's transport infrastructure at the behest of a handful of self-interested nimbys. That a solution to the future of traffic flow through this historical bottleneck would be required was known over 40 years ago to my certain knowledge! Preparations made for this contingency started with the demolition of St Pat's College and more recently the Prince of Wales Tavern. Ironically that

is the site of the Grandstand Apartments where many of the objectors appear to live! It also seems strange to me that the objection seems to be spearheaded by a community association which is likely funded by city council grants, as such associations generally are. For the majority of the commissioners to say that they are protecting a significant historical site, when historical buildings have long ago been demolished, defies logic! That they also believe that they are protecting a boulevard entranceway (Cambridge Terrace) is staggering in the extreme. That they were paid nearly three million bucks is insane! Tony Sutcliffe, Strathmore

Flyover call a disaster

Dear Ed, the decision is a disaster. The Basin Reserve is great and should be preserved but to decide it on heritage value rather than the effect on rapid transport and the second tunnel is hard to understand. Ron Stewart, Miramar

Flyover will be built

Dear Ed, withholding consent for the Basin

Reserve flyover is nonsense. It will be built. It may not be within the next two years. It might be built within the next five years but it will definitely be built within the next ten years. As long as population growth and economic growth is encouraged, as it is now, we will need new roads. Whether we are riding on bicycles, in motorcars, in buses or in carts driven by horses we will need new roads. Even pedestrians need roads. The board of inquiry should have been driven from the airport to the Terrace tunnel every day at 4.30pm during the enquiry so they could see the reality of the traffic congestion caused by the Basin Reserve every day of the week. The decision is nonsense. Ken Mulholland, Miramar

doubtful about what I'd written, I'd meanwhile contacted a friend who had done Latin up to Stage One at Otago University, and who also has a good dictionary of Roman antiquities. He supplied almost the same information as from Mr Slater; so perhaps the latter has another copy of that same reference book. Otherwise, I cannot accept his defence of how, seemingly, regardless of its derivation, any word must be accepted to mean just what anyone wants it to mean - the Humpty Dumpty principle! Whether or not they know it, the two gentlemen who had a go at me are advocates of chaotic anarchy for English usage. For all I know, the figurative use of the word cohort(s) may have always been derogatory in ancient Rome; but Mr Beck deliberately misses my point that the word cohort(s) now gets used with a great many wrong meanings, some derogatory and some not, and usually by people who haven't the faintest notion of its origins, literal or metaphorical. Maybe even wrong answers in kids' arithmetic will soon be treated as correct! I'll soon be dead, but feel very anxious about what will happen to my young kinsfolk and friends within a few years. H. Westfold, Miramar (abridged)

Fighting back the cohorts

Dear Ed, Re the two July 28 letters attacking my letter of July 21, I'll first say I'm grateful that Mr Slater set right my misremembered notions of the units and number of men that a Roman legion comprised. In fact, as I was

Walk down memory lane in Berhampore By Sam Duff Berhampore School are on the search for local tales as they put together a book to celebrate their centenary. The original Berhampore School burnt down in 1905 and was replaced by South Wellington Intermediate School on the current Waripori Street sight, says parent Kerryn Pollock. Modern day Berhampore School on Britomart Street was built in 1915 to accommodate an overflow of students from SWIS. Kerryn says there is not much published

material about the school or about the suburb of Berhampore, which was named after a Baharampur in Bengal, India. “It’s not just a place on your way to Newtown or to Island Bay,” she says. Principal Mark Potter, who has been in charge at the school for 17 years, says the book is a good chance to celebrate the school and the wider suburb of Berhampore. “It’s not just about having a big hoolie, it’s about celebrating what has happened in the past,” Mark says. “It’s something people will be able to have and to hold about the school.

“We want people to have something that has their history in it.” Parent Sadie Coe says the school believe it is important to be part of the community. Well-known Berhampore students of the past include writer Robin Hyde and sports commentator Keith Quinn, while playwright Roger Hall was a teacher there. The book will be sold during centennial celebrations on Labour Weekend 2015.  Anyone interested in being interviewed for the book should contact Sadie Coe on 9722270 or berhampore100@gmail. com

inbriefnews Call to arms in Mt Vic Anti-social behaviour such as vomiting, speeding, tagging and petty vandalism has led to Mount Victoria residents wanting to take back their suburb. A public meeting will be held on Saturday August 9 to discuss the issue in the suburb. Councillor Iona Pannett says the meeting will be held in conjunction council, local police and the Mount Victoria Residents Association. The meeting will be held at the Crossways Community Centre on Roxburgh Street from 3pm till 4.30pm.

Petrol prices should drop – AA The AA thinks petrol prices should drop despite a falling exchange rate. According to AA PetrolWatch, petrol prices rose a total of 1 cent per litre during July. AA PetrolWatch spokesperson Mark Stockdale says the AA often gets complaints about the high cost of fuels.

The story of a line in the sand

Dear Ed, in answer to previous July letters. Antiochus IV of Syria had been conquering bits of Egyptian territory after his sister, the first Cleopatra to rule Egypt, died in 176 BC. BY 168, her children were old enough to unite against their uncle. Lacking real power they appealed to Rome. On the beach at Eleusis, the Roman mission leader, Laenas, handed Antiochus a written ultimatum which recommended his army should leave Egypt immediately. Expecting diplomatic protocol to prevail, Antiochus intended to take the ultimatum to his commanders for consultation. Laenas suddenly changed the rules. He walked around Antiochus, drawing a line in the sand as he went, until the King stood in the middle of a circle. Laenas ordered Antiochus to decide whether to leave, yes or no, before crossing the line. Impressed by such boldness, Antiochus gave in. He stepped out of the circle, the Syrians left Egypt. Atticula (nom de plume), Hataitai

which one enters at their peril. 2. A demarcation line, beyond which there is no going back. 3. Loosely, "this far and no further, or else." History is punctuated with examples of its application and just to mention a few: In 168 B.C when the Roman consul Gaius Laenas drew a curved line around King Antiochus IV of Greece demanding his pledge to withdraw his army from Egypt before he moved out of the line of encirclement in the sand, or face a declaration of war from Rome. In the bible, Johns 8:6 records Jesus drew a line in the sand to defend an adulterous woman from a stoning to death, saying "Let him who has not sinned cast the first stone etc." In 1807 at the battle of Te Kai a te Karoro during the early musket wars in NZ at Morenui, chief Taoho of the victorious Ngati Whatua drew a line in the sand with his spear to indicate that no more Ngapuhi would be killed beyond this mark. Whichever way you slice this hackneyed idiom I don't think it lends itself to the warbling of Pat Boone or the gladiatorial combats of Circus Maximus, and the true origins of this expression will never be claimed. George Scott Slater, Berhampore (abridged)

The debate continues Down with the pokies Dear Ed, H. Westfold of Miramar seeks

clarification for the meaning and origins of this dusty old metaphor, and my best definitions are: 1. A symbolic barrier of limitation beyond

MINUTES WITH: Celeste Hastings

Holy Cross School Principal

What is your favourite food?

What’s next on your wish list?

Thai food, especially when it is ‘Thai hot’.

To continue the development of our community hub at Holy Cross and at a personal level to walk the Tongariro Crossing.

What is your pet hate?

What makes you smile?

Seriously, injustice in any way, shape or form. Semi-seriously, when people don’t pronounce word endings correctly. For example when they say communidy instead of community!

What is one thing Cook Strait News readers would be surprised to know about you?

Your favourite holiday destination?

Who would you invite to dinner?

Nelson, for the walks, the art, food and coffee.

The twelve people I flatted with in London in 1986!

I have completed over one hundred half marathons!

The innocent, yet profound, comments made by our children. I try to get into a classroom or spend time in the playground each day and I always hear or see something special.

What’s your favourite music? I love to hear our Holy Cross students singing, I am just so proud of them. I also enjoy the music of the Canadian group, Cowboy Junkies and their best album, the Trinity Session Revisited.

Spruced-up pharmacy for Brooklyn

KID’S CLUB: Youngsters take part in the new Wellington Zoo early childhood programme.

Wild start for kiddies Roaring lions, lanky giraffes and tiny wee tots are not normally a good mix. But Wellington Zoo early childhood programme Wild Start kicked off with a roar last week. Designed for children aged 18 months to three years, it is exclusively available to Wellington Zoo Crew members.

Wellington Zoo learning manager Lynn Allan says the zoo is very proud of its new programme. “It’s important to connect kids with animals from an early age, and this programme is all about encouraging young children to explore the natural world around them,” Lynn says. Led by Zoo educators, each

Wild Start session is a unique interactive learning session designed to help toddlers celebrate the wonder of animals, she says. Activities in term three include meeting and touching some of Wellington Zoo’s residents, helping to prepare meals, and participating in story-telling, music and dancing.

One stop shop launched

Calling the history buffs

A new website was launched last week to simplify interactions with Government agencies. General Manager of government information services Tina Sutton says the new site is based on real New Zealanders’ experience and feedback. “It’s written in plain language and content is grouped by topic, rather than by government department,” she says. The new site can be found at www.govt.nz.

History buffs are welcome to attend an upcoming meeting of the Wellington Southern Bays Historical Society. The speaker is Jo Carter on photo preservation and digital restoration. The meeting will be held at the Wellington South Baptist Church in Island Bay on August 18, starting at 8pm.

Cake was how Brooklyn Pharmacy celebrated their new look store last week. Owner Graeme Blanchard says the store has rebranded to the pharmacy brand Unichem. “Our customers will notice we now stock a wider range of pharmacy products,” he says. “Both the inside and outside of the pharmacy have been upgraded.” Graeme says the pharmacy will be offering new services in the future including vaccinations. They celebrated all week with hundreds of spot prizes, including a $150 dinner for two at Dockside. CAKE SMILES: The team at Brooklyn Pharmacy celebrated their newly refurbished store last week.

Paint the town Orange On Friday more than 1,200 children, representing over half of Wellington's primary schools, marched through the city as part of the annual Orange Day street parade. The march celebrates the great work done by school patrols to improve road safety around their schools. The schools patrollers marched from Parliament along Lambton Quay and Willis Street to Civic Square. The Council then hosted a celebration in the Michael Fowler Centre. Wellington School Community Officer Constable Duncan Ashton, who trains school patrols, says patrollers do a vitally important job for their schools and communities by improving safety during the busiest times on the roads. “These children are out there volunteering their time to help make Wellington’s roads safer for school children – so this parade is about giving them a reward. Hopefully the parade will also help remind Wellingtonians that they should be extra alert when driving near schools,” he says.

The Electoral Commission has confirmed that telephone dictation voting will be in place before this year’s election. The new service has been developed with testing and input from the Blind Foundation and Blind Citizens New Zealand.  More information is available at www.elections.org.nz or by calling 0800 36 76 56.

Regular visitors to the Kilbirnie Drop-in Centre have an opinion on everything from roads to politicians and enjoy solving the world’s problems. On the day the Cook Strait News visited a hot discussion was the Basin Reserve Flyover decision and the upcoming general election. Co-ordinator of the drop-in

centre Gill Price says she enjoys meeting and getting to know the different characters that pop-in for a chat, a coffee and sometimes even a sneaky cake. “I like helping people,” Gill says. “It’s for people who want to meet others for a cup of coffee.” The centre needs more locals to help out during the week as several longstanding volunteers are retiring, Gill says. She says the centre gives locals

a sense of belonging along with a nice hot drink. “They talk to each other and often make new friends. A lot of people come every day.” The centre, which is open weekdays from 10am till 1.45pm, is part of the Kilbirnie Community Centre on Bay Road.  Those interested in volunteering at the drop-in centre should contact Gill on 387 7867.

Old photos bring suburbs to life... Chatting to an old mate led to the discovery of a collection of old Wellington pictures for a Miramar man. Ian Carmichael says he was

given the almost 200 picture a few years ago in Porirua. “I couldn’t believe it,” he says. Ian, who has lived in Wellington since 1965, says the photos

show how much the city and eastern suburbs have changed during the years. “I find them quite interesting. It’s totally different now.”

Columbus Coffee in Newtown is celebrating a great first few months in business. Owner operator Sam Allison says the busy café, located at the entrance to the new Countdown, is steadily growing. “It is a really nice relaxed place to come and have a coffee and some food,” he says. Sam says he sources all ingredients locally himself and everything is made onsite – from his favourite, the warm chicken and bacon salad to the infamous Columbus breakfast. “We’re driving the standards really high,” he says. “I stand by everything that we make. Our chef has 25 years experience.” Sam says he loves coming to work every day and meeting the friendly Newtown locals. “I love the mix of cultures in Newtown,” he says. “It’s a great place to work.”

“It’s really nice getting to know the regulars.” Head barista Vicky Rothwell who previously worked at Midnight Espresso on Cuba Street has more than five years experience brewing the perfect cup, he says. Sam says Columbus enjoys helping out the Wellington Samaritans and took part in Clean-up Newtown. Columbus’ text a coffee or $6 coffee and muffin/scone deal is a real hit with locals. Customers are welcome to text their order between 7am and 9am weekdays to 021 024 29074. Reward cards are available which give customers points for coffee and food purchases. Columbus Coffee has 62 stores throughout New Zealand which are all locally owned and operated.

By Sam Duff Yellow, blue and red were just some of the many colours covering the hands of kids in Kilbirnie last week. PORSE Wellington is fundraising for the Child Cancer Foundation by covering a painting canvas in hand prints. Kiriana Rawiri, 3, and Callum Carnegie, 5, were just two of the many children who got their hands dirty for the canvas. The finished canvas will be gifted to the Child Cancer Foundation.  Donations can be made on the PORSE website at porse.everydayhero.com/nz/porse-centralwellington.

David keeps an eye on the coast By Sam Duff Patrolling the rugged coastline of Wellington’s South Coast means every day is different for ranger David Moss. The DOC ranger, who has been with the department for almost 18 years, looks after biosecurity threats for the Wellington region but spends a lot of time at the Taputeranga Marine Reserve on the South Coast. An average day for David, who lives in Wilton, can vary from catching rodents on the Kapiti Coast to educating visitors to the reserve in Owhiro Bay. “I am passionate about natural resources,” says David, who used to be a teacher and chef. “When the Marine Reserve was announced there were mixed feelings in the community and now it’s excepted by most people that it’s been a good thing.” David says a highlight of his job is working with little blue penguins, which he says are amazing.

“They’re very nosey,” he says. “There’s nothing quite like having penguins live under your house.” “The biggest issue we have with penguins is penguin dog interaction on the South Coast.” David says he sees about 15 to 20 dog attacks on penguins each year. “The best thing people can do is keep their dogs on a leash.” David says DOC and the Friends of Taputeranga Marine Reserve are hoping to put together a community coast watch group at some stage. “The community are our eyes and ears,” he says. “We need to know when things are happening so we can get down here and talk to the people involved.” Last Friday was World Ranger Day and DOC celebrated a number of their rangers throughout the country. David says locals are the key to protecting the reserve and if they have concerns they should contact DOC on 0800 362 468.

Cooking up treats in the kitchen By Sam Duff

STEWING UP: Neil Carey gets a lesson in cooking from chef Elizabeth Marshall at the Kilbirnie Community Centre healthy cooking on a budget workshop.

Fry, boil, bake and grill – locals attending a healthy cooking workshop in Kilbirnie can now add a few new dishes to their repertoire of recipes. Moroccan couscous with chicken was the dish of the day for the 13 locals who took part in the Kilbirnie Community Centre’s healthy cooking workshop. Rowena Bonne from the centre says the workshop was a big success with great feedback from participants. “It went really well,” she says. “It was very involved.” Another popular dish was pasta with kumara, Rowena says.

“People were able to eat everything they cook at the end,” she says. “The food turned out really well. They had some great flavours.” Rowena says participants were from a cross-section of society from retirees to single parents. Neil Carey says he enjoyed the session. “I learnt some basics like how to crack an egg without the shell going in,” he says.  Rowena says the community centre will hold more healthy cooking workshops in the future and anybody interested in taking part for a small fee should contact the centre on 387 7867.

A mint condition Beatles the White Album vinyl is the first thing sold in Wellington’s biggest book fair – before the fair has even opened. Downtown Community Ministry tweeted that it had the item for sale, and it was quickly snapped up, says book fair co-coordinator Matthew Mawkes. More than 90,000 books, plus CDs, DVDs, vinyl, puzzles and games await buyers at the annual DCM book fair. Organisers expect more than 5000 people at the event. “There is definitely something for everyone,” Matthew says. The event runs on Saturday, August 16, 9am-5pm and Sunday, August 17, 10am-4pm at TSB Bank Arena, admission is free. Proceeds go towards helping the homeless in Wellington through Downtown Community Ministry. “Best of all every single cent of funds raised goes directly toward

DCM’s work helping the most vulnerable people in Wellington,” Matthew says. Since beginning the book fair in 1995, DCM has taken $1.5 million in proceeds, consistently raising about $100,000 each year. Without the help of an enormous pool of volunteers, DCM would not be able to run the book fair, he says. This year, a team of 44 volunteers have worked twice a week for a number of months, at the storage unit in Shelly Bay sorting the books and pricing each one. Prices range from 50c to around $100, depending on the type, value and condition of the item, with the standard price of an item being $2, unless otherwise specified. The 90,000 books have been collected throughout the past year, after being donated by members of the public. Donations have been collected in book bins at 16 separate locations throughout Wellington and also at the DCM office at 2 Lukes Lanes in Te Aro.

Stacking his way to America By Sam Duff Do you know a 3-3-3 stack from a 3-6-3 stack, or how about a cycle stack? Wellington College student Nathan Carter, 13, certainly does after recently being named in the Black Stacks New Zealand team. The sport of stacking involves stacking specially made plastic cups in a specific order in as quick a time as possible. It can be a team or an individual sport. “It’s really fun,” Nathan says. “It’s just the speed of it.” “You get into the zone. The great thing is it can be a good party trick.” Nathan, who has been taking part in the sport since 2010, will head to America next year for the Stacking World Championships. “I have never been out of New Zealand before so it will be a great experience,” he says. “Going to the world tournament is quite a privilege.

“I will be able to meet all the other guys who are the fastest stackers in the world.” Nathan, who practices for about 30 minutes a day, says he got involved in stacking when a girl in his class bought in her cups. “When she showed us I liked the idea of it,” he says. Having competed at the National Tournament in April Nathan took out second place in his age group for the 3-6-3 stack. Jo, Nathan’s Mother, says her son seems to be getting better and better at stacking. “I can’t do it, that’s for sure,” she says. Nathan says stacking will always be a hobby while he would like to have a career in art, music or architecture. The year nine student will be fundraising for his trip to America by busking. Nathan recently set a new personal record for a stack he completed in 6 seconds, the video can be found on YouTube.

Island Bay out of Chatham cup

REDS GO DOWN: Marist St Pats faced a loss against Wainuiomata last week. PHOTO CREDIT: Dan Whitfield.

Marist St Pats miss out on cup final By Dan Whitfield Marist St Pats put up a good fight but came up short against a dominant Wainuiomata side recently. The two teams came face-to-face with each other in the semi-final of the Jubilee Cup competition, with Wainuiomata claiming victory with a 26-13 win. MSP and the visiting Hutt Valley team were both seeking a spot in the final. The well-deserved victory for Wainuiomata came after a strong and smart second half, with locals coming out to support the team at William Jones Park. Saturday’s action started off

with a 6-3 lead for Wainuiomata, after the team’s winger Tyler Tane placed two penalties through the uprights. Up three points, it seemed Wainuiomata slacked off a bit; with MSP scoring the first try of the game. The 10-6 lead was secured by second five Isaia Petelo, however, this was the final time MSP would lead, with Wainuiomata scoring shortly after. Wainuiomata had a 13-10 lead at half time. The second half belonged to Wainuiomata, showing dominant pressure over MSP – simply by

playing smart and keeping the side stuck down in its half. Despite the strong series of play, Wainuiomata only had a three point lead with the clock rounding out the 80 minutes fast. Wainuiomata managed to create another opportunity for one of its players to score following an attacking push. A last minute drop goal took the Wainuiomata lead to 26-13, with the referee calling time after a stoppage in play. The Jubilee Cup final was held between Wainuiomata and Hutt Old Boys Marist on Sunday. The result was not known when the Cook Strait News went to print.

The Island Bay United premier football side is out of the ASB Chatham Cup after a loss to the Napier City Rovers at Wakefield Park last week. The central league quarter final match, watched by more than 500 supporters, started out with attacking flurries from both sides. IBU’s Callum Holmes scored the home-sides only goal after getting past Napier’s Jonty Underhill. After a slow start for Napier the visitors fought back just before the half hour mark. T he score boa rd wa s evened out by former NZ

U20s rep Andy Bevin when Napier was given a free kick on the edge of the IBU box. With a score of 1 all at halftime both sides were looking for a convincing win. It was not until an hour into the match that Napier started to break away from the home side with a goal from Josh Stevenson for a 2-1 lead. With 15 minutes to go on the clock a penalty to Napier was not well received by IBU who claimed an offside. Napier player Ryan Tinsley doubled his side’s lead taking Napier to a 4-1 win and a spot in the semi-finals.

Marist farewell life member Marist St Pats were saddened to announce the death of life member John Gordon last week. John completed his college years at St Patrick's College Silverstream and became a squad member of the St Pat’s old boy’s side that won the 1949 Jubilee Cup. John took on many roles at the club throughout the years including president, chairman, committee member, club captain, clubroom manager and Old Timers Day organiser. His funeral was held on Friday in Karori.
