NEW WORLD LEVIN

Blaze the ‘last straw’

WEDNESDAY JULY 25 2012

INSIDE today

By PETER FRANKLIN

Their world has been turned upside down but brushing away the tears, Rackley family members are determined to pick themselves up and move forward. At 9.30am on Friday fire engines from Levin rushed to Mr Rackley’s State Highway 1 home, after a fire broke out in the ground floor bedroom. Smoke drifted throughout the two storey building contaminating all it came in contact with. While no one was injured, the emotional stress has been huge. ‘‘I really don’t know what else can be thrown at this family,’’ Perry Rackley said as he stood in a fire-damaged bedroom. Mr Rackley said the fire was just about the last straw: he and his sons had been reeling firstly from the death of his stepdaughter, 22-year-old Melanie, then the breakup of his 15-year marriage and now a fire that has severely damaged the family home that was being renovated for a possible sale. Mr Rackley said it was not until he came out to the house the following day to get some clothes for himself and the boys that it really hit him. ‘‘I stood there and just wept, it all came to a head in just a few seconds,’’ he said. Mr Rackley said it is all the little things that you suddenly need and find that you do not have them. ‘‘Toothbrushes, towels and even food, everything has been affected by smoke; the boys’ and my clothes, the bedding, all of the electrical appliances — we have been advised not to use them. ‘‘While the insurance company are paying for us to stay in a motel temporarily, we have got to find somewhere for the animals.’’ The fire started in a boarder’s

She was in the lounge on the computer when she noticed smoke coming from the room; her first reaction was to go upstairs and get Mr Rackley’s older son Julian out of his room.

At the time Mr Rackley was in Levin at the bank; by the time he got back firefighters were at the scene. Heat from the fire was so intense that windows were cracking and melting. He said everything that has

happened over the past 11 months has tested the family’s resolve. Mr Rackley is now in the position of needing the support that he has offered others, working with at-risk youth at Hinemoa House.

Mobility madness

I am hoping that someone may identify a lady who I saw on a mobility scooter last week riding along the railway track which runs across the road parallel with the north and south service lane, waving her hand at the motorists to stop for her. Cars were backed up on both ends of Bath Street which, luckily for the woman, allowed her to get across safely. There is a legal pedestrian crossing just further up the road along Oxford Street — why she didn’t use it is beyond me. At no time do scooter riders cross the road where there is not full visibility from all sides of our vision. I am absolutely shocked at seeing this as there is no way anyone is allowed to ride along the rail tracks. It is an accident waiting to happen in this case — the woman could have been killed without the care taken by the many drivers that day who I sincerely thank for their consideration. I am hoping someone may know or have seen this woman on her scooter, which had no flag or identification, and get in touch with me so I can give her a rule book which she should have got with her scooter. And maybe suggest she comes to our group meetings and learn the do’s and don’ts about owning a mobility scooter. We meet on the fourth Monday of every month at the RSA rooms in Devon Street at 1pm. If anyone reading this knows of this lady please phone Joy, 368 1316, or maybe the lady herself would like to contact me. Take care on the roads whatever transport you use. JOY VANNISTELROOY Levin

Kere Kere ward

Since the news broke in the local print media about the possible demise of the Foxton Community Board, the subject has certainly been well covered with Ngaire Ellwood of the community board being particularly vocal in defence of its continuing role in local governance. As an elected community board member, Ngaire Ellwood has a high profile within the Foxton/Foxton Beach Community with her positive attitude towards local governance and her obvious loyalty to the local community who elected her to the Board. With negative publicity surrounding the elected Kere Kere Ward councillor (Anne Hunt), it is possible that a new councillor could be elected at the 2013 local body elections. With a high profile community board member making herself available, Kere Kere Ward voters would certainly have the opportunity to vote for a change of representation around the Horowhenua District Council table.

In reference to ‘last chance for Board’, Horowhenua Chronicle July 11. Thank you for initiating the debate on the Local Government Representation Review. There does need to be all the information so that ratepayers can make good decisions. ■ The ‘‘power base’’ of the Horowhenua District has always been Levin as that is

Foxton has a District Council Service Centre which has staff who can provide information and accept rate payments. ■ The Foxton Community Board holds its meetings in the service centre and public interest is so poor that comparatively speaking hardly anyone attends. ■ The community board has never championed the sustainable management of the environment which is so important in this area if we want to retain the honour that goes with having a wetland of international significance in the Horowhenua district — the Manawatu Estuary. They ‘‘did not wish to formally object’’ to the Palmerston North wastewater consent which can deliver up to 43,000 cubic metres of effluent into the river in dry weather and frequently dumps over 100,000 cubic metres in a rainfall event. They did not participate as a submitter to the recent Shannon and Feilding wastewater applications. The former chairman of the community board did submit to the Foxton application stating that the effluent could still be discharged to the Manawatu River as long as it was on the outgoing tide. We don’t see that as being a champion for the community. It took a voluntary organisation to get worthwhile conditions for that consent. ■ Cr Allan appears to have been misquoted in his comments about the Foxton Beach Freeholding Fund. At the last representation review held in 2005 the commissioners were led to believe, by the community board, that the community administers that fund. CEO at the time, Greg Boyle, declared to the commissioners that the Reserves and Other Lands Disposal Act, ie statute law, states very clearly that the district council is the administrator — he was ignored. Anyone can make a recommendation to the district council on how to spend that fund — we do not need a salaried board to do that. Further, the commissioners’ minutes of that hearing are incomplete and blatantly misleading on this issue. Those commissioners made a faulty decision. The proof is contained in the district council agenda for July 4, 2012. It is well noted that the district councillors at the meeting of July 4 2012 were wide awake and they did not fall for the error. ■ Noting that the report in the Chronicle July 11 has not mentioned anything about the proposed boundary change for the Kere Kere Ward so that Waitarere and some farmland also on the southern side of the Manawatu River are included to bring up the population number to ensure that the Kere Kere Ward retains the two councillors. This opens up the potential for the Kere Kere Ward councillors to come from Waitarere and/or the adjacent rural area. ■ When future local government amalgamation occurs then Foxton and Foxton Beach may very well move into the Manawatu district which will certainly not tolerate a community board when they have had the advantage since 1989 of community committees working on a voluntary basis. After all, the Foxton Community Board was only established as a pacifier for having to be added to the Horowhenua to make up what was seen then as a reasonable ratepayer base. ■ Finally, ratepayers districtwide pay

for the Foxton Community Board which, unlike our ward councillors, does not work on a districtwide basis. This means that any ratepayer in the district can make a submission on the disestablishment of the board. The Horowhenua District simply cannot afford the board, as indicated in the last financial report to the council wherein the cost of the board is already over its budget.

Fat column falls flat

I’m pretty shocked that the Chronicle would print Bevan Sanson’s hate-filled opinion piece printed on Wednesday, July 18. Obviously he is trying to be controversial and edgy, but to pull that off you at least need to be funny or original. Making fun of overweight people is just juvenile and kind of lazy. Bevan states that ‘‘some (fat people) are a health risk. It’s a fact’’. Bevan, just because you say ‘‘It’s a fact’’ after something doesn’t make it one, by the way. I would argue that playing contact sports is a health risk but we don’t see Bevan making disparaging comments about people who engage in these. Somehow he feels that it is acceptable to single out overweight people for abuse and ridicule, how is this helpful to anyone? Bevan seems to think that the way to encourage overweight people to lose weight is to abuse them — because that has worked so well in the past, right? Oh well at least it is possible for overweight people to lose weight, Bevan you will always be an ignorant idiot. Go back to your cave. KATE PITTUCK Levin

NEWS

Councillor in gun again for speaking out By PETER FRANKLIN Kere Kere ward councillor Anne Hunt has again been taken to task by the Horowhenua District Council over a complaint of misuse of confidential information. A code of conduct committee investigation has upheld the complaint resulting in her being taken off three council committees and publicly reprimanded. Mrs Hunt is reported as calling the code of conduct hearing a ‘kangaroo court’ and said that the whole procedure was simply a way of trying to keep her quiet. Mrs Hunt said the code of conduct committee broke every rule in the book and the matter was now in the hands of the Ombudsman. Mrs Hunt had been the subject of three code of conduct complaints relating to the misuse of confidential information. Horowhenua District Council’s code of conduct committee upheld two complaints of misuse of confidential information out of the three made. At the hearing on July 4, the council resolved that the appropriate action in response to the breaches was a public censure, and her removal from those council committees she serves on, other than full council. The committees she has been removed from are, the strategic grants special committee, the

major events and local events marketing grants subcommittee, the civic honours special judging panel. The requirement to abide by the code of conduct is something all councillors accept when taking office and the council can impose a range of penalties including removal from committees if the code is deemed to be breached. Councillor Hunt’s replacement on the committees on which she currently serves will be discussed at a full meeting of council on August 1. Horowhenua District Mayor Brendan Duffy said, as far as referring the code of conduct committee as a kangaroo court, it was about time Cr Hunt acknowledged that she needs to be aware of her obligations and respect the responsibilities of her elected position. And as far as getting rid of her, the people of the ward elected her, it is not our job to do that, Mr Duffy said. He said Mrs Hunt continues to cost the ratepayer an enormous amount of money annually in challenges. The two complaints upheld by the code of conduct committee relate to a letter sent to the Maori Land Court, the second to a letter sent to the Auditor General and the third relates to a phone call, which she says is hearsay.

Slip poses danger on Gladstone Road

LVN230712abseilers

Geotechnical abseilers have discovered significant cracking in the land surrounding the Gladstone Road slip. Their initial assessments after arriving on Sunday also indicate a large amount of unstable material is still sitting high up on the slip site. Since the slip last Tuesday around 3000 cubic metres of rubble has been removed from the site which has cleared the road area, but the abseilers’ findings reveal the environment is still hazardous with the forecasted rain over the next week expected to make the situation even more dangerous. Horowhenua District Council staff continue to monitor the situation but the road will remain closed until it they are satisfied it is safe for traffic.

ADVICE FOR THOSE AFFECTED ■ Stay away from the affected area ■ Help people who need special assistance — infants, elderly people, those without transportation, families who may need additional help, people with disabilities and the people who care for them ■ Watch for flooding, which may occur after a landslide. ■ Contact the Horowhenua District Council on 06 366 0999 if you have any concern Access for residents remains open through the Denton Road gate and residents unable to use this track should contact the district council or Makahika Outdoor Pursuits Centre for assistance with any needs. Security personnel are managing this access way to ensure the safety of residents using this route and will be on

site 24 hours a day until further notice. One lane may temporarily open later in the week with concrete blocks and fencing protecting traffic from small amounts of falling material, but with the safety of residents paramount it will close if assessments indicate further large falls.

Local men to be part of health study

Horowhenua men are being recruited for a study to discover the best type of exercise to reduce the risk of diabetes and combat obesity-related illness in Maori. The three-year Massey University study is being led by Dr Isaac Warbrick, from the School of Sport and Exercise. It will involve 40

participants from the Manawatu and Horowhenua region. ‘‘They are defined as being aged over 25, inactive, with a body mass index (BMI) over 25 but outwardly healthy,’’ Dr Warbrick said. The men will be split into three groups with each assigned a different mode of exercise: resistance (weight)

training, cardio (swimming, running, cycling) and a mix of both. They will have group exercise sessions with a trainer for periods of 30 minutes, three times a week for 12 weeks. ■ Anyone who would like to be part of the study should contact Dr Warbrick, phone 022 130 1208 or 06 356 9099 ext 4476.

Levin lads shine on stage

Looking forward to Kiwi Christmas By FRANKIE WEBB

Two Levin boys have excelled in the Manawatu Performing Arts Competition Society’s against strong opposition. Declan Leahy, pictured left, came first in the under 13 years ‘restricted own selection verse’ category earning the Mary Brooks Cup and Joshua McCartney came third in the under 11 years ‘light verse’ section. The pair — who are

pupils of Shirley Silvester’s drama and singing school in Levin — then went on to win the under 13 years ‘scene’ category for the second year in a row. The Levin Drama and Singing School is held after school. For more information contact Shirley Silvester, phone 368 1315. ■ The Manawatu Performing Arts Competition Society

holds competitions in dance (ballet, tap, modern, contemporary) speech and drama, vocal, piano and instrumental and Highland dancing every year to foster and promote the practice and appreciation of performing arts. The dance festival is usually held in April, vocal in May, piano and instrumental in June/ July, speech and drama in July with Highland dancing in August.

An international liaison between New Zealand Prime Minister John Key and Japanese visitor Chiyoko Murata which escaped media attention was all above board. Chiyoko, 16, from Ishikawa, Japan is studying in Levin and had a chance meeting with Mr Key shortly after arriving here. ‘‘My host mum works with Nathan Guy (Otaki MP), I met Mr Key through her,’’ Chiyoko said. ‘‘He is a very nice man.’’ And Mr Key isn’t the only thing about New Zealand she approves of. ‘‘I like New Zealand sushi, I don’t eat sushi at home,’’ she said. ‘‘We don’t have chicken or avocado in our sushi, just fish. New Zealand sushi is much nicer — yum.’’ Chiyoko is working on improving her English studying at Horowhenua College. ‘‘I’m studying the same subjects as I was at home; I found it hard working in a group situation as I’m very shy, but I have made nice friends here,’’ she said. Chiyoko will be having Christmas in New Zealand and, despite missing her friends and family, is

Gala charity night at Little Theatre

A gala charity performance will kick off the Foxton Little Theatre’s winter production of A Kiss on the Bottom. ‘‘It has been some years since theatre opening nights were treated as a special social occasion, a time to glam up, socialise and be entertained,’’ said theatre president Carl Terry. ‘‘We think the time is right to bring that back while giving something to the community by making it a charitable night. ‘‘The evening will start at 7pm with an hour of socialising and refreshments followed by the performance.’’ Proceeds from the night will go to the NZ Cancer Society Horowhenua. ‘‘A Kiss on the Bottom’’ by Welsh playwright, Frank Vickery is a bitter sweet comedy centred on three women undergoing cancer treatment. While it might sound an improbable theme for a comedy, their personal secrets, different backgrounds and maddening behaviours give rise to many moments of humour, pathos and joy. Directed by Mr Terry, the play features 2011 Globe Award Best Supporting Female Actor in a Play, Carolyn Allan and two previous Globe Award nominees, Levin’s Pam Hardy and Jenny Fon. The season opens on August 3 and runs each Friday and Saturday until August 18. Tickets for the Gala Charity performance are $30, including

FROM THE BEEHIVE

Great to see building work By NATHAN GUY, Otaki MP During a busy day in the electorate last Friday, I was struck by the number of building projects under way. A new hockey pavilion and changing rooms are being constructed at Mazengarb Park with help from Kapiti District Council, Lottery Grants Board and local fundraising. The state-of-the art facility will be able to host everything from school and club games through to international tournaments. Down the road, a major roofing project is happening at Paraparaumu College. This will fix leaks, improve ventilation and provide more space and light. Otaki College is also looking forward to the completion of its technology unit which I toured. At Coastlands, Farmers is expanding into bigger premises which looks impressive. The new Kapiti council building is taking shape, as is the new aquatic centre. These two new projects have created a lot of work for local contractors and businesses. Both will be finished early next year. The next phase of the Kapiti Airport development is approaching rapidly with many new businesses coming to the business park. In Levin, Te Takere is in full swing. This cultural and community centre will include meeting rooms, areas for children and young people, a local history area, exhibition and performance spaces, and a cafe. I’m sure this will become a central meeting point for locals, and will bring new life to the Levin town centre. Many of these projects will be finished by the end of the year. Next year I’m looking forward to construction starting on the Kapiti expressway, which will be the first major stage in the Wellington to Levin Road of National Significance. I expect this will have significant input from local businesses and workers, and major spinoff benefits for the local economy. It’s pleasing to see so much positive progress and building happening locally, and this is only a quick snapshot.

Get lost at home — the new British craze By BEVAN SANSON

F

irst it was queuing, then it was health and safety messages, now for the latest craze to hit Britain — getting lost. Here in London, as you have probably read, there have been a few problems as the city gears up to host the biggest show on earth. The company in charge of security has failed to deliver and thankfully the army has stepped in to fill the over 3000 places not filled by the contractor, who no doubt will still expect to be paid despite their poor performance. Then there is the transport. This is the nation that once ruled the waves and a quarter of the globe. The British mapped the world. Sadly now they can’t even get around their own nation without getting lost. I was on a bus the other day returning to London after being at the rowing venue. On the way the driver got lost, resulting in a three-hour drive which should have taken

90 minutes. On return a different driver was getting deeper and deeper into trouble. I asked a volunteer if the driver was lost, to which he replied, ‘‘The driver is not lost the SAT NAV is.’’ It was that statement that illustrated the faltering mindset of the nation that gave us Drake, Raleigh and Cook and now can’t read a map. The reliance on the satellite navigation system is so bizarre over here. They programme their intended destination into this computer thing, go out onto the roads of Britain and proceed to get lost. When you inquire as to if they have a book of maps they look at you like

you are from a time that no longer exists. Perhaps I do. It’s a time where maps show you the way as opposed to listening to a machine whilst you ignore road signs as any sense of direction you once had is eroded away. Meanwhile you get lost and blame anything and anyone else rather than yourself for being so foolish as to trust a malfunctioning computer rather than pieces of paper that have served mankind so well for centuries. By the time the games begin I’m sure the drivers will have learnt their routes by repeated trips over the same ground. I hope they also throw their SAT NAVS into the Thames, pop into Waterstones and buy some maps. Gold is the object most desire when they come to the Olympics. For many to see any golden moments it’s going to take bus drivers to be human again. If not then the machines have truly taken over.

Bevin cops Bevan’s opinion flak There’s no connection between Bevin Sanson of Levin, and Bevan Sanson who went to school here and is now a journalist in Auckland. ‘‘People have to remember I sell cars not write columns,’’ says the other Bevin Sanson. Mr Sanson’s comments come after some people took exception to Horowhenua Chronicle’s columnist Bevan Sanson’s thoughts on Waiopehu College two weeks ago. ‘‘I know we have the same name, but it is spelt differently and his

about things, but please direct your comments to the right person, not me or my family,’’ he said.

GREY MATTERS

Forums a chance to have your say By DAVID GREEN Horowhenua Grey Power president There are a few meetings coming up which may be of interest to you. On Friday the Electra Trust holds its annual meeting to keep beneficiaries informed. This will be held in the Salvation Army Centre in Levin at 12pm. This trust ensures that ownership of the lines company is held by the users of the network. Its five-year performance highlights make interesting reading. Since 2008 total revenue has increased by $26,608,000 to $86,442,000 while the sales discount has reduced by $702,000 to $6,736,000. This annual meeting is the only opportunity beneficiaries have to meet the trustees and the directors of Electra. At present Horowhenua District Council is holding a review of representation arrangements for the 2013 local body elections. The district council is recommending that Foxton Community Board be dissolved. A public meeting is to be held on Sunday, August 5 to discuss this at Manawatu Boating Club at 3pm. Submissions must be received by the district council no later than 5pm on Wednesday, August 15. The Otaki time bank is keen to gauge support for a time bank in Levin. A member of the time bank, Ben McHugo, is holding a public meeting on Sunday, August 12 in Levin to promote this concept. It will be held at Horowhenua District Council at 2pm. You can contact Ben, phone 362 6176 if you want to know more about this or go

We have invited the president of the NZ Federation of Grey Power, Roy Reid, to address us. The federation was instructed at the annual meeting in May to implement a modernisation plan. I am sure it will be of interest to members to get an update on this from our national president. Also at this meeting we will hear from Robin Winter about Going Digital as our TV reception changes next year. ■ If you wish to comment on these issues you are welcome to contact me on (06) 367 0559, 022 604 3150 or david@aaaltd.co.nz.

TOP 10 moments NZ Olympic history

Olympics 2012

1 2 3 4 5

Victory of ‘amateurs’ over ‘professionals’ Many regard the eights as the glamour event at any rowing regatta. In 2008 sports writer Joseph Romanos chose the victory of the 1972 rowing eight as the best team performance by New Zealanders at the Olympics. He described the ‘‘emphatic’’ victory

as one of New Zealand’s all-time Olympic highlights. International Olympic Committee president Avery Brundage was so elated by this victory of ‘‘amateurs’’ over ‘‘professionals’’ that he presented the medals himself, and God Defend New Zealand was played at an Olympic medal ceremony for

the first time. The crew was: Trevor Coker, Athol Earl, John Hunter, Tony Hurt, Dick Joyce, Gary Robertson, Wybo Veldman, Lindsay Wilson, Simon Dickie (cox). Many attributed the success to outstanding coach, Rusty Robertson.

Walker wins gold in Montreal The 1500m final at the 1976 Olympic Games was meant to be a confrontation between John Walker and Filbert Bayi of Tanzania. However black African nations boycotted the Games in protest at the All Blacks’ tour of South Africa. With 270m to go, Eamonn Coghlan of Ireland took off, leading Walker to the front of the field. Heading into the top bend, the New Zealander surged into the lead and held on to win gold in a time of 3m 39.17s, 7s slower than Bayi’s Christchurch world record.

Olympic pioneers Distance and lack of money prevented New Zealand from competing at the first three modern Olympic Games: in Athens (1896), Paris (1900) and St Louis (1904). In the 1908 Games in London, New Zealanders competed as part of an Australasian team. New Zealand contributed three athletes

to this team: Henry St Aubyn Murray, who competed in the 110m hurdles (and was the team’s flag bearer), and walkers Arthur Rowland and Harry Kerr. Taranaki-born Kerr became New Zealand’s first Olympic medallist when he finished third in the 3500m walk.

Offside, ref! In 1956 Kiwi football referees Morrie Swain and Reg Lund were selected to officiate at the Melbourne Olympics. Swain impressed enough to earn a linesman’s role in the gold-medal match between the USSR and Yugoslavia. These Olympics began just weeks after the brutal Soviet invasion of Hungary, and the

102,000-strong crowd was hostile towards the Soviet side. The USSR was leading 1-0 late in the match when Yugoslavia appeared to equalise. But Swain had his flag raised for offside and the goal didn’t count. He later recalled how he was ‘‘the least popular man in the stadium’’ as the Soviets went on to claim the gold medal.

Golden day for New Zealand runners in Rome In 1960, New Zealand enjoyed one of its greatest days at an Olympic Games. First, Peter Snell (pictured) won gold in the 800m, and within half an hour Murray Halberg won the 5000m to complete a remarkable track double in Rome’s Olympic Stadium.

Snell had arrived in Rome as a relatively little-known middledistance runner. The 21-year-old was ranked just 26th in the world. The final was run at a red-hot pace. The favourite, world recordholder Roger Moens, of Belgium, took the lead 100m from the finish but Snell surged past him on the

inside, crossing the line with his eyes shut. Just minutes later, Halberg lined up in the 5000m and, drawing inspiration from Snell’s triumph, burst ahead of the field with three laps to go and hung on bravely to the finish, winning in 13m 43.4s. Source: nzhistory.net.nz


Olympics 2012 Violet Walrond was New Zealand’s first woman Olympian. She was only 14 when selected and 15 when she swam at the 1920 Antwerp Games. Standing 1.6m, she weighed just 48.5 kg. Violet was part of New Zealand’s first official Olympic team. Her father, Cecil, who was also her coach, was her chaperone and the unofficial coach of the team. Preparation was not ideal. The sea journey was delayed in Australia and South Africa and the team arrived after nine weeks of travel with

little chance for training. They had no team uniform — the men wore suits and Violet a cream frock. Only the fern leaves on their hatbands identified them as New Zealanders. The race venue was a cold murky canal with no lane ropes. Violet came third in her 100m freestyle heat and fifth in the final. In the 300m she was seventh in the final. Violet was the first Kiwi woman to use the ‘‘crawl’’. She copied the style of the Wellington champion, one of only two New Zealand men to have adopted the stroke.

Back-to-back wins for twins Identical twin sisters Caroline and Georgina Evers-Swindells won gold in the women’s double sculls at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, beating the German pair of Annekatrin Thiele and Christiane Huth by 1/100 of a second. It was the first time the women’s double scull title had successfully been defended, the pair having won in Athens. Following the Beijing Games the EversSwindells announced their retirement from rowing.

Strategic Lovelock in dramatic finish

Jack Lovelock won New Zealand’s first Olympic athletics gold medal before Adolf Hitler and a crowd of 110,000 at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. He led the 1500m field home in a worldrecord time of 3m 47.8s. Lovelock ran strategically, positioning himself inside Glen Cunningham (US). As they came to the final lap Eric Ny (Sweden) was leading.

Lovelock surged up to his shoulder and Cunningham followed. With 300m to go, Lovelock sprinted. His dramatic finish famously caused the BBC commentator, 1924 sprint goldmedallist Harold Abrahams, to forget his broadcasting etiquette: ‘‘My God, he’s done it. Jack, come on . . . He wins. He’s won. Hooray.’’

Yvette leaps for gold at Helsinki

Congratulations Chickie. Wonderful effort. Mighty proud of you.

New Zealand’s first woman Olympic medallist, Yvette Williams, won gold in the long jump with an Olympic-record leap of 6.24m (20ft 5in) at Helsinki in 1952. Thanks to amateur radio operators who were monitoring shortwave broadcasts, New Zealanders were able to stay up through the night and listen as Williams competed. After leading the qualifying round with a jump of 6.16m in the final she

Telegram Williams’ father sent following her win

recorded two no-jumps in a row. With only one more chance to stay in the competition she cleared 5.9m on her third jump to make the top six and earn three extra jumps. Williams’ fourth was perfect. Sir Arthur Porritt, a former New Zealand Olympian and 1924 bronze medallist, presented Williams with her gold medal. Supporters carried Williams shoulder-high from the stadium.

Super Saturday . . . In what became known as Super Saturday, New Zealand enjoyed its greatest day at an Olympics, wining five medals in the space of a few hours in 2008. The rowers started the run with single sculler Mahe Drysdale and the men’s pair of George Bridgewater and Nathan Twaddle winning bronze. Georgina and Caroline Evers-

Swindell showed what they were made of, winning the gold in Beijing by just 0.001 of a second. Cyclist Hayden Roulston bagged silver in the 4000m individual pursuit before Valerie Vili blitzed the field in the shot put, with a throw of 20.56 to win New Zealand’s fifth medal of the day and its first throwing gold medal.

House plants in winter

WEEKEND WORK

Digging in

■ Make haste slowly with gardening in your area just now unless a greenhouse is available to protect seedlings. ■ But preparations may be made for outdoor gardening when the days are longer and the sun grows stronger in August. ■ There is still time to plant bare-root trees, shrubs and hedge plants, and roses in beds prepared for them. ■ Make sure the Liquid Copper sprays are applied to all fruit trees and rose bushes, all deciduous species. ■ Apply lime to vegetable garden plots according to the rotation. But not too much where tomatoes, potatoes or peppers are to grow.

inter time can be a hard time on house plants due to temperature changes and less natural light. Rooms that plants live in may go from a few degrees to more than 20 degrees and back to cold within a 24-hour period as heating is used and turned off. A room that is continually warm or cold suits plants better than wide temperature changes over short periods of time. Watering of house plants in winter is a very difficult thing to explain as many factors are involved. Basically the growing medium (potting mix) should be a little on the dry side most of the time with only small drinks to maintain this. If the mix becomes too wet it will mean the plant will suffer more in the cold times and because the roots are surrounded by water in the mix they lack oxygen so they start to rot. This will appear as stress in the foliage and mistakenly some people will think the pot is too dry and water it, adding more to the problem and likely a loss of the plant. With pot plants that you are able to lift up do there’s a test to do before applying any more water to the mix — if the pot has a good weight to it, then likely the mix is moist or wet even if the top of the mix looks dry. It is surprising how light they are when bone dry. If there is water in the saucer beneath the pot then that is a definite sign of overwatering. After watering wait about half an hour and check the saucers for water. If there is any remove it. If a plant has been in the same pot for a long time then it is likely to be pot bound which means the roots have taken up most of the area in the pot and there is little mix left. A plant in this state will run out of water very quickly and even in winter may need watering every few days. In summer likely a daily watering would be needed. When a plant becomes too pot

TLC: A little bit of TLC will keep houseplants at their best during winter. bound it will die eventually so there is a need every few years to root prune. This is done by removing the plant from its pot, sawing off the bottom third of the roots and then placing fresh mix in the bottom of the pot to the height sufficient to cover the area the roots have been removed. Then pop the plant back into the pot. It will need less watering for a while as it fills up the new mix with roots. The plant will show a new lease of life also. The mix you choose to use is up to you and likely a potting mix is better for indoor plants. If the mix has wetting agents in it that is good for summer but can be deadly for winter if you don’t take extra care in winter watering. Light levels are low in winter due to shorter day light hours and the sun been at a lower ebb which marks a danger for indoor plants. This is especially so with smaller leaf plants, maidenhair ferns for example. They might do well in the summer time with long light hours but in the winter there is insufficient light for the plant. Moving plants closer to a natural light source (window) will be better for the plant. Turning the plant around 180

degrees every week will keep more even growth and reduce the plant stretching for the nearest light source. If your ferns get tatty you can cut off all the foliage just above mix level. Leave any new fronds that are starting to rise, then after giving the plant a drink if need be, place outside in a very sheltered spot where it will get ample natural light. It’s a good idea to tap the plant out of its container, root prune if needed and check for mealy bug in the root system and on the side of the pot. This appears as whispery white patches. If seen then make up a solution of Neem Tree Oil at 15ml per litre in a bucket of warm water and plunge the root mass into the water and leave to soak for about 15 minutes. Then lift; let it drain before returning to the pot which should have been washed clean with hot water. With ferns, this treatment before placing outside as described will be ok. It is not suitable for plants that are not cold hardy. Those plants should be left till summer to treat. A room which you have heating in and you use to dry washing on a clothes horse or similar will provide a better

environment for the plants as they will require less watering because they will get extra moisture though their leaves. Cyclamen are very popular this time of the year as they are a cold loving/flowering plant. They do need good light and are best sitting on a window sill or right in front of a window. If they don’t look perfect then pop them outside for a week or two in a nice sheltered place with good natural light. Outdoors the flowers will likely be pollinated by air movement and you can collect the big round seed pods that form when they are mature, about the time they are ready to drop off. You can germinate the seeds in dark or low light situation on a heat pad. Just keep moist by misting. Once some show of leaves appear move to a better light outside shelter and keep a little moist. Later on when the baby corms have sprouted another leaf or two you can prick them out and pot into small pots to grow on. Use as house plants later or for planting in the garden under trees or shrubs, out of direct sunlight in summer and water to moisten the soil.

You may have purchased a poinsettia for last Christmas with it lovely red leaves; now the same squat plant has likely got a bit leggy and sporting green leaves. Poinsettia when they flower produce very small flowers which look more like berries than flowers, to attract attention to these small flowers the top leaves turn a brilliant red. This takes place in winter or at any time when the plant only receives about eight hours of light a day over a period of weeks. This makes now a great time to get your poinsettia back to red for a few months. Place it where it obtains natural light from a window but no artificial light each day/night. After a few weeks it should redden for you. Be very careful with your watering and keep the plant on the dry side. Later on when it has finished flowering you can prune it back (it will bleed white latex) or in warmer areas they can be grown outdoors in a frost free drier situation such as under the eaves, facing a northerly direction. Outdoors they can grow two to three metres and make a lovely display in winter, alternatively plant into a large container in a conservatory where it will receive no light at night in the winter. ■ For any gardening problems contact me, phone 0800 466 464 (Palmerston North 357 0606), email wallyjr@gardenews.co.nz, website www.gardenews.co.nz.

LIBRARY NOTES

Te Takere is getting closer! with Deborah Macdonald

NEW TITLES

W

e have been listening to the vibrations of the machinery next door for some weeks but in the past few days the builders have broken through with a jackhammer, creating holes where doorways will lead into the new centre. This has resulted in a major reshuffle in the library with the need to dismantle and re-erect shelving and to relocate thousands of books. There will be quite an upheaval over the next few weeks with some noise and disruption, and we do thank you for your patience. It is only temporary and will be worth it in the long run. Time is counting down. We are delighted at the appointment of two of our existing staff to management positions. Ema Jacob is now manager of customer services and Wendy Fraser is library services manager. We know that both Ema and Wendy will be brilliant in their respective positions. Further staff appointments will continue to be made over the next few weeks. There are a number of activities happening this week to celebrate Maori Language Week. Come in to watch the women from Te Kokiri weave their magic. They are here for the rest of the week and will be happy to demonstrate their techniques. There will be stories and songs to entertain school classes and kohanga reo, and on Friday at 1.45pm we will be entertained with a kapa haka performance given by a group from Levin East School. Many of us can relate to husbands who forget things such as wedding anniversaries, picking up the drycleaning, important dates or other events, absent-mindedness which drives us mad. You may feel more

forgiving after reading John O’Farrell’s The Man Who Forgot his Wife. This is a funny, moving and poignant story of a man who has done just that. Vaughan has developed amnesia and has completely forgotten his wife’s name, her face, their history together — in fact everything about her, leaving him with no knowledge she even existed. And now he has rediscovered her, only to find out they are getting divorced. He will do anything to turn back the clock and have one last chance to reclaim his life. This is a light-hearted read by a humorous writer. The Taliban Cricket Club by Timeri N Murari is a riveting novel which takes the reader through the shrouded world of one woman whose only crime is being a woman. Set in modern day Kabul,

Rukhsana is a spirited young journalist who works for the Kabul Daily in Afghanistan. She cares for her ill mother and younger brother. Their life is shattered when Rukhsana is summoned to appear at the infamous Ministry of Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice. It is announced by the Minister, Wahidi, that the Taliban has found a new way to pursue the diplomatic respect it has been denied — cricket. On the world stage of sports, the Taliban will prove it is a fair and just society! Rukhsana is to report that a tournament will be held to determine who will play for Afghanistan. Could this be a way of escape for her family? This is a story of strength, hope and soaring human triumph.

Funds raised go towards 2013 “Relay for Life”

In the past I have been an on and off again gym user, and it wasn’t until I had the right mindset that I could get serious about losing weight and toning up. So after joining Fitstop and having a session with Carol it was all go. With a goal weight in mind and wanting to reach it in a short time frame, Carol gave me the motivation, advice and training I needed. I attended her core classes which I thoroughly enjoyed and noticed a difference in my toning because of this. I also had a personal training session weekly to assist me with reaching my goal weight. She also offers her full attention during training sessions along with different and more challenging exercises. Alongside my eating plan, Carol helped to get me down to my goal weight and maintain it. Losing 8kg in five months

The benefits of pilates have been particularly noted in older adults. Older adults are more likely to suffer from symptoms of arthritis, including stiff and painful joints. Pilates practice has also been lauded for its ability to help prevent injury. Even adults undergoing serious rehabilitation therapy can use Pilates to increase their range of motion and overall muscle strength.

Gold Coast club christens new track

By STEVE GREEN, www.sportsimages.co.nz

The Gold Coast Motocross Club hosted the 2012 Wellington Motocross Championships on their new track at Himatangi Block Road just north of Foxton on Saturday. The track is quite long — I would estimate it as being close to two kilometres — mostly soft sand with a few man-made gravel sections. Many of the numerous bumps and jumps were also the work of men on excavators and loaders. The result is a track that is fast yet challenging with plenty of width for passing. This was the Gold Coast Motocross Club’s new track’s first official race meeting and the day was relatively trouble free with a sore shoulder the only notable injury. The large pit area was packed with cars and families enjoying a day out and there was even the monster energy truck in attendance early in the day which proved to be popular with the huge field of junior riders and their families.

MOTORING

A Jeep for our time ROAD TEST Story: Colin Smith Photos: Joel Ford

I

T’S ONE of the most recognisable of American automotive design signatures but right behind the sevenslot grille of this Jeep Grand Cherokee is hard evidence of the post-GFC linkup between Fiat and the Chrysler Group. Diesel engine versions of the fourth generation Jeep Grand Cherokee use a new 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged diesel developed and built by VM Motori and Fiat Powertrain. The Italian connection supersedes the Mercedes-Benzsourced V6 diesel unit in the previous generation Grand Cherokee and provides a useful performance boost. The new CRD unit develops 177kW at 4000rpm and has 550Nm of torque available from 1800-2800rpm. It is smooth with quiet refinement and also revs eagerly for a diesel while delivering respectable power and fuel efficiency along with its impressive torque. The latest WK2 series Grand Cherokee has been a work in progress since February 2011 when the 3.6-litre V6 and 5.7-litre V8 petrol Limited models launched in New Zealand. The 3.0-litre CRD diesel models followed last year while the more accessibly priced Laredo model was launched in late-2011 and in recent weeks the brawny SRT-8 version with 6.4-litre powerplant and performance brakes and suspension to challenge high-end Euro SUVs has completed the lineup. The latest Grand Cherokee retains its familiar five-seat wagon configuration and rugged Jeep design cues highlighted by the familiar grille and prominent trapezoidal wheel arches while its ground clearance, low-ratio transmission and full-time fourwheel-drive provide the foundation for genuine offroad duty. It’s the Quadra-Trac II fourwheel-drive hardware used in the Laredo with the Selec-Terrain system offering Sport, Snow, Auto, Sand/Mud and Rock modes by twisting a selector knob and push-button low ratio selection. The price-point is among the most appealing attributes. The Laredo is the entry-level specification for the Grand Cherokee — higher grade Limited and Overland grades are also available — and it’s a comfortably

equipped wagon for $64,990 with a 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine and $69,990 for the CRD. It’s a big step up from the Laredo to the Grand Cherokee CRD Limited at $91,990. The advantages of choosing diesel are lower fuel consumption, effortless torque and a big lift in braked towing capacity — from 2268kg to 3500kg — over the V6 petrol version. The transmission is a smooth shifting five-speed automatic with big torque overcoming what might be perceived as the disadvantage of ‘‘only’’ five gears. Cruising at 100km/h in fifth gear the V6 CRD is working in the core of its torque curve at 2000rpm and downshifts into fourth and third equate to 2800rpm and 3700rpm respectively. The auto shifts responsively and completes a nicely timed kickdown from fifth to fourth to keep things on the boil on long highway hills and to provide respectable overtaking response. Combined cycle fuel consumption for the Laredo CRD is rated at 8.3 litres per 100km and my road test averaged 8.9 while a big 93-litre fuel tank assures longdistance range. Plenty of suspension travel is the basis for a comfortable ride on the highway and on bumpy and corrugated

JEEP Grand Cherokee Laredo CRD $69,990

rural roads the Laredo copes well. Although tall and quite compliant in the suspension, the body control remains progressive in tighter corners and when the big wagon is pushed harder. I liked its comfortable ride and feel of substance on the road with wide-tyred adhesion and informative steering feel. Laredo models have fivespoke, 18-inch alloy wheels shod with a mild M+S pattern Kumho Solus KL21 tyre in generous 265/60 R18 dimension. And although wide-bodied it’s not actually as big as it seems — the 4822mm overall length is not much different to a Toyota Camry

for example — and it’s reasonably agile in tight city spaces and carparks. But the open road is where the Grand Cherokee’s comfort, driving dynamics and effortless diesel urge are best suited and the Laredo also has a supportive seat design and the raised eye-level visibility to make it a relaxed long-distance machine. There’s a power adjustable driver’s seat with cushion height/ tilt and slide/recline movements plus a four-way electric lumbar support adjuster. The steering wheel has manual reach and rake adjustment and the cloth trim seats have supportive side bolsters. Five-seat accommodation includes plenty of rear headroom and rear legroom with the added comfort of reclining rear seats. A 60/40 split cushion and backrest allows the rear seat to tumble fold in a single movement and there is 782 litres of load space with the rear seats in use and 1554 litres when the rear seat is folded. There are some pleasant equipment surprises to discover in a vehicle in this price range which add to the Laredo’s appeal. There is a tyre pressure monitor, keyless entry with push-button start, heated front seats and powerful Bi-Xenon headlights with Smartbeam headlight technology which automatically dips the headlights. Other standard features include dual-zone airconditioning, rain-sensor wipers, black woodgrain interior trim, a six-speaker audio system with 6.5-inch touchscreen control and media centre with USB and auxiliary inputs. The list of what you get for a

SAFETY: Dual front airbags Front and side curtain airbags Driver’s knee airbag Front seatbelt pretensioners and load force limiters Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control Hill Descent Control Active front seat head restraints Tyre Pressure Warning System Antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and emergency brake assist Front seatbelt reminder Three-point centre rear seatbelt 2 x ISOFIX child seat anchors 3 x child seat tether points Alarm and immobiliser security system Full size spare wheel CRASH TEST RATING: Overall rating (2011 Australian NCAP test) ★★★★ FUEL ECONOMY: Combined (claimed): 8.3 litres per 100km Road test results: Combined: 8.9 litres per 100km sub-$70K pricetag seems very competitive and in spite of the big price step up to the Limited model the Laredo doesn’t seem to be lacking in specification. A reversing camera and a rear parking sensor are the most obvious specification omissions here. The Grand Cherokee Laredo CRD competes in a market segment where diesel rivals are as diverse as the seven-seat Hyundai Sante Fe CRDi, Kia Sorento R and SsangYong Rexton while there is also the more crossover-like Ford Territory TDCi and Holden Captiva 7 LX diesel. The Jeep recipe of six-cylinder diesel muscle, rugged offroad ability, 3.5-tonne towing capacity and a luxury equipment level combines with the $69,990 pricetag to achieves an SUV sweet spot.
