Horowhenua has huge talent and isn’t afraid to show it. On May 10 and 11 Horowhenua artists will be on show to an estimated 2000 visitors. Horowhenua Arts Trail may only be three years old but it has already achieved a high profile. ‘‘This is a fantastic win, win situation,’’ Arts Horowhenua Inc president and trail coorganiser Joan Keogh said. ‘‘Our artists get to showcase and sell their work, Horowhenua has an influx of visitors spending time and money in Horowhenua.’’ There is no charge to visitors, artists pay to be included on the trail should their work pass the Arts Horowhenua Inc selection process. ‘‘We want to ensure only the very best is offered,’’ Joan said. ‘‘Horowhenua has earned a reputation for producing exceptional quality artwork, confirmed by the last two trails.’’ The variety of work is enormous. New and previous artists on board this year offer

BUSY TRAIL: Horowhenua Arts Trail is expected to bring 2000 people to Horowhenua and Horowhenua Arts Inc president Joan Keogh is determined to make sure the visit will be worthwhile for visitors, artists and Horowhenua as a whole. PICTURE: FRANKIE WEBB quilting, photography, glass blowing, leadlighting, sculpture, painting, drawing, heirloom rocking horses and more. Art Horowhenua is still accepting nominations. ‘‘We will consider anything of real artistic merit,’’ Joan said. ‘‘Shannon and Foxton artists are a little elusive, we would welcome more work from these areas to compliment

the Levin, Waitarere and Manakau entries.’’ Last year visitors came from Queenstown to Gisborne. ‘‘Sunday was the busier day,’’ Joan said. ‘‘It was Mother’s Day, and will be again this year, that may have an effect.’’ While the trail opens at 10am and closes at 4pm each day, visitors can start

whenever, and wherever on the map, they like. ‘‘Maps will be made available a few weeks before the trail opens,’’ Joan said. ‘‘There’s no charge to go on the trail so if you don’t get around everything on Saturday there’s always the next day.’’ ■ For information contact Joan Keogh, ph367-0104 or jandb_ keogh@xtra.co.nz

New year, new challenges with COLLEEN SHELDON Happy New Year. Welcome to my fortnightly column. It’s been a while so I’ll recap on some of the things that have happened since I last wrote, back in July. This column had to come to an end as I entered a three-month election period from July 12 to Election Day on October 12. There was a ban on councillors being seen to have exclusive opportunities to entice constituents to vote for them. Fortunately, in HorowhenuaKairanga ward, there were only two candidates nominated, so Lindsay Burnell and I were elected unopposed. It would be simple to surmise that it is because we have done a great job (I think we have) or that no one wanted to step up to the plate and write a column every fortnight, but it could very well be that the Horowhenua District Council had a lot of councillors stepping down which opened the door for budding politicians. Horizons Regional Council got five new councillors. Two councillors from Palmerston North and one from

Wanganui had stood down at the end of last term, while the other Wanganui councillor as well as the Ruapehu councillor had election defeats. The new councillors are Rachel Keedwell and Pat Kelly (Palmerston North), David Cotton and Rod Pearce (Wanganui) and Bruce Rollinson (Ruapehu). All councillors have undergone induction, learning the business of regional council along with the legislative and regulatory requirements. In my first term, I remember being absolutely wiped out by the time Christmas rolled around and I expect it is the same for the new councillors. It is not just a matter of reading agendas but understanding the history and debate behind some of the decisions. Last term I was on the Environment

Committee and Public Transport Committee, and a member of Zone 3 Committee and the Manawatu River Users Group. I also helped administer the Linklater Bursary Scholarship. This term I am the chairwoman of the Environment Committee and a committee member on Public Transport, Audit, Risk and Investment, Catchment Operations, and Zone 3. I look forward to the challenge of my new role in the Environment Committee as we strive as a council towards a sustainable future. I will have a watchful eye on the implementation of the One Plan to ensure it is fulfilling its intention. I say this carefully because the original intention has somewhat got skewed in number crunching and we need to be looking towards sustainable outcomes. ■ If you have any comments or feedback, email me at colleensheldon@xtra.co.nz; phone 06 329-6989 or 021 264-2301; or post, c/o Freepost 217922, Private Bag 11025, Manawatu Mail Centre, Palmerston North 4442.

FURRY FRIENDS: Walking along Waitarere Beach with owner Luca Cockrell, who took this picture, dog Shay discovered a small visitor. This baby seal was as curious about Shay as Shay was about him. It is likely the visitor from the sea was resting following stormy weather, returning to the sea later in the evening. ■ Have you snapped a good pic lately of someone or something in Horowhenua? Or maybe you’ve taken a picture of Horowhenua people doing something somewhere else. If you have and you want to share it with our readers email it to us at news@chronicle.co.nz. Put Scene in Horowhenua in the subject line and give us some details about who or what is in the picture.

I read that Horowhenua District Council is to offer job application forms in the Maori language. Human resources manager Meredith Blackler claims that no other council offers this service. I wonder if it has occurred to her that maybe they have more common sense? Less than half of 1 per cent of our population can read or write in Maori so the service has a very restricted field of play. There are fewer fluent speakers of Maori now than when the [Maori language’s promotion] scheme started. Maybe Ms Blackler thinks that HDC is going to make the big breakthrough. We do have a third official language called sign. As many people use sign language as can speak Maori but somehow it does not have the feel good factor. Council should consider employing a team of people competent in sign language to sign at all council meetings, public meetings and anywhere where a councillor speaks on behalf of council. So much time and money is poured into the Maori language but very little into sign. This is grossly unfair as those who speak Maori have the option of speaking English whereas people who need sign language do not choose to be deaf. (abridged) REG FOWLES Shannon

Commercial premises hit with GRAEME JARVIS, Community Constable

SNOW SHOW: David snapped this shot in hometown Shannon during a surprise snowfall in 2011.

Talented Shannon artist a winner with camera By FRANKIE WEBB

Police have also noticed an upturn in commercial burglaries in the past few weeks, with areas in the south west and south east hardest hit. Cash, computers, tools and in one instance a number of heavy duty truck batteries have been stolen. If anyone has any information it can be phoned direct to Levin police on 06 366-0500, or anonymously on Crimestoppers, 0800 555 111. The benefit of the crime prevention camera’s throughout the commercial areas of Levin have once again proven their worth, with offenders for committing some wilful damage witnessed, then located and identified, confirmed using this technology. Levin is well serviced by the 13 strategically placed cameras and the dedicated volunteer staff that man them from the police station. I look forward to reporting throughout the remainder of the year, and hope you all have a happy, healthy and prosperous 2014.

TOP SHOT: Shannon’s David Knight and his internationally awardwinning photograph of a bumble bee dusted in pollen. Mr Knight has also created jewellery from paua shell and other locally sourced materials. ‘‘I gave most of it away,’’ he said. ‘‘People have taken my pieces overseas for gifts.’’ The designs, almost Maori

inspired, feature on his mother’s fence at the southern entrance to Shannon. Moving into photography was a natural progression. ‘‘I love design and colour in nature. You see amazing things through the lens of a camera.’’

Shannon’s David Knight is known for his prowess on the bowling green, his works of art adorning the fence of his mum Shirley Hicks’ Shannon house and as a survivor of the 1968 Wahine tragedy. What he is less known for in his home town is his ability behind the lens of a camera. The Horowhenua Chronicle has featured a number of Mr Knight’s scenic photographs. He doesn’t ask for a credit in the caption, a simple acknowledgement in the photo number is sufficient. He is now an international award-winning photographer but is almost embarrassed by the accolade. ‘‘I don’t really exhibit my photos. I entered this competition online,’’ Mr Knight said. ‘‘I didn’t expect to hear back from them really.’’ He submitted the study of a bee, covered in pollen, going on its daily business. It captured the judges’ imagination. ‘‘I got an email from London saying I’d won, I thought that was pretty good,’’ he said in his usual humble way. A self-taught photographer, Mr Knight has immense artistic talent so it’s no surprise his dabble into the photographic scene has resulted in such success. His equipment is basic, a Panasonic Lumix SLR camera with a couple of lenses. It is his talent which produces the amazing results. ‘‘I just play around with the settings until I get what I’m after.’’

This report heralds my first week back at work, and the beginning of the new year. Local police have been busy over the holiday period so far, with all the usual complaints and offences featuring, however several things in particular have caught my eye. An empty house in Rugby Street was burnt to the ground this week, and is being treated as a suspicious fire by detectives and fire investigators. Of particular note has been the number of traffic-related incidents attended, with a number of visitors from out of town involved or others travelling through the district. Sadly drink driving features all too often, along with other villains such as loss of traction, driving while a non-operation order is in force, driving while suspended and careless driving. A number of vehicles stolen from other districts have also been recovered locally with offenders located and arrested. One motor cycle stolen from Levin over the weekend is still outstanding. The offenders have gone to great lengths to remove a Honda Shadow 1100cc from a carport in Rimu Street, negotiating parked vehicles to move the large and heavy machine. The registration number is 64RPS and any sightings can be reported to any police station.

Historic mill replica to go on display By TANYA WOOD A replica 1850s waterdriven flour mill, housing some of the oldest surviving European artefacts in the region, will be officially opened to the public as part of the Horowhenua Vintage Car Club open day this month. Two large metal cogs from the mill, the largest measuring 1.3m in diameter, were discovered buried in sand 30 years ago, and given to the club by the landowner, the late Jim Stewart, in 2008 with

and used to grind locally grown wheat. No photo exists of the mill, presumed to have perished in the earthquake that struck the region in the mid 1850s. The show grounds was chosen as the most suitable site to locate the replica mill, where it could be enjoyed by more people, after no suitable site could be found at Poroutawhao. A team of about eight men worked on the 4m high replica over six weeks, using sketches of a

the specific request that the cogs be restored. Club member and chair of the restoration and building committee, Tom Hayes, said the cogs were too valuable to end up as scrap metal. ‘‘I’m convinced after doing some research that they are the oldest surviving European artefacts in Horowhenua,’’ he said. The original flour mill on Paeroa Rd was constructed by local Maori under the guidance of a French Catholic priest,

similar mill built at Otaki by the same Catholic priest. Grinding wheels and a water wheel built and added by the team will show how the mill would have worked. Mr Hayes and team member Peter Nightingale will give a talk at Te

Takere on Wednesday, January 22 at 7pm on the history of the flour mill and building project, ahead of the mill’s official opening by Mr Stewart’s wife, Gae, at the Horowhenua Vintage Car Club Open Day on Sunday, January 26 at 1pm.

The open day at 14 Tiro Tiro Rd will run from 10am to 3pm and include a large display of cars, trucks and motorbikes. Vintage car rides will be available, and there will be a sausage sizzle and refreshments on sale during the day.

International travel has been added to services offered at the Levin Visitor Information Centre, Te Takere. Manager Colleen Tyree is working in conjunction with NZ Travel Brokers to offer a comprehensive service which will make Te Takere a one-stop-spot for everyone’s travel needs. Colleen is an experienced travel agent who is looking forward to adding international travel to the national services already offered by the information centre. ‘‘We will be able to make bookings through websites like Expedia and Booking.com so we can get the best deals for our customers.’’ All aspects of an overseas trip, from air tickets to car rentals, coach and train reservations, accommodation and activities can be handled by Colleen. Te Takere chief executive Joann Ransom said Te Takere must generate new revenue streams to enable it to become more self-sufficient and continue to offer the free amenities and services it does now. ‘‘This extension to visitor information services of brokering international travel should help achieve this,’’ she said. ‘‘The initiative has been approved by Te Horowhenua Trust and is supported by both Horowhenua mayor Brendan Duffy and district council chief executive David Clapperton.’’ Te Horowhenua Trust will be a member of the Travel Agents’ Association of New Zealand (TAANZ) and will offer competitive pricing as well as all the benefits and protection TAANZ provides. The new service will begin on Tuesday.

WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE Travel is Colleen Tyree’s passion. Colleen has been involved in the travel industry for more than 15 years and has the knowledge and experience to help customers plan their dream holidays. Originally an AA customer service representative in Palmerston North, Colleen moved into travel, first as a processor and then in a sales role. After a break to raise a family, she returned to travel sales working in the Hawkes Bay and Palmerston North and later at both United Travel and the Flight Centre in Levin. For the past year she has managed the Visitor Information Centre at Te Takere, which specialises in local information for tourists and bookings for buses, trains and ferries. Colleen has travelled all over the world. ‘‘I particularly enjoy travelling to Europe as my grandmother is Italian and I still have family there to visit, but I also enjoy taking smaller trips to Australia and the South Pacific where I can enjoy time with my children,’’ she said. ‘‘I love to make people’s dreams a reality and when I’m talking about travel I feel as if I’m taking the journey with my client.’’ One of Colleen’s opening promotions is a free travel club, with members in with the chance to win a $200 travel voucher. Phone 366-0848 or 027 341 8678 to make an appointment with Colleen.

Lifeguards remain vigilant By TANYA WOOD Despite an increase in the number of rips and holes along the coast, Foxton and Waitarere Beach lifeguards had nothing more serious than a few cuts and jellyfish stings to deal with. Foxton Beach Surf Life Saving Club captain Hellen Windley said the team of more than 20 volunteer lifeguards spent much of their time keeping people informed about the ‘‘significant’’ number of rips and holes in front of the car park this year. ‘‘People tend to hop out of their cars and head straight down to the beach in front of the car park thinking it’s a good place to swim, but at the moment this is the most dangerous area on the beach.’’ Ms Windley said normally that area was okay but they’d had to move the flags further up the beach. It had been pretty quiet so far with just the odd bit of first aid required, she said, but a large influx of blue bottle jellyfish this week could see a few stings for unwary swimmers. Waitarere Beach Surf Life Saving club captain Brian Forth said his team were also busy making sure people understood why they had to swim between the flags.

WEEKLY CHECKS Horizons Regional Council takes weekly water samples from the district’s swimming spots during summer, testing for bacteria, and colour coding the results green (should be safe for swimming), amber (should be satisfactory for swimming) and red (could be a health risk for swimming). To date, the region’s beaches and streams have been predominantly green. For further information go to ‘water’ at www.horizons.govt.nz/ managingenvironment/ resource management LVN110114TWsurf

ON PATROL: Volunteer surf lifesaving guards Victoria McTavish, 14, Danielle Mackay, 18, and Rebecca Jones, 14, are part of a 45-member team that patrols Waitarere Beach at the weekends during summer. ‘‘The beach is accepted as pretty safe for swimming because it’s shallow a long way out but that’s what makes it deceptive. Trenches and hollows, known as holes, sit behind the sand bars. We had some pretty big swells with the westerlies and anyone caught at waist deep behind one of these waves can

suddenly find themselves down over their head.’’ He said they were constantly reminding people, especially children on boogie boards, to not go too far out. Brown foamy seas on some days, confirmed as a naturally occurring algae or sea scum by Horizons Regional Council, had

people a little concerned, he said. ‘‘People obviously wanted to know what it was but it didn’t put them off going in the sea.’’ Volunteer lifeguards patrol the beaches every weekend from 1pm to 5pm until the end of March. Paid surf lifeguards patrol during the week from 11am to 6pm until Friday, January 24. Horowhenua District Council contributes $40,000 annually to cover the six weeks of paid lifeguarding.

Fishing improves but not the weather Waitarere Beach Fishing Club have had a good jump-start to the summer season with a successful club Christmas dinner and fishing leading up to Christmas improving dramatically. Boaties, longliners and surfcasters have all been reporting good catches. The only drawback has been the changeable weather, high winds, high tides and rough seas challenging keen anglers. The beach also had some good holiday media coverage as one of the top spots for holiday makers and for good fishing. Fish of the month for

KEEPING WATCH Constable Doug Patrick has been a welcome addition to the beach and it is timely to remind everyone that to ensure the beach is a family friendly area, that hoonish behaviour will not be tolerated. The beach is a designated road and unregistered bikes, especially offroad trail bikes which often attract unfavourable attention, will not be permitted. It is an offence to ride over the sand dunes, and to this end the local police and the beach wardens, will be assisting in the prosecution of illegal behaviour.

November was a 3.74kg kahawai caught by Graham Moore, in December Richard Hutchby caught a 1.4kg gurnard. This month snapper should be running. Our next meeting is on

Thursday 13 February 2014, 7pm at the Scout Hall. Marine Biologist Wayne Seymour who will speak on the marine and coastal environment as it relates to Waitarere beach. Get ready for the surfcasting

competition on Saturday February 8, starting at 6am to 3.30pm, with the prizegiving at the Scout Hall at 4pm. This is an open competition; you do not have to be a club member. Adults Entry fee $20 per rod. Prizes 1st $1000, 2nd $5000, 3rd $250. Children Entry fee $5 per rod, (under 14) Prizes 1st $ 250, 2nd $125, 3rd $65. The competition is kahawai only. Tickets available from - Tackle Tactics, Foxton, Levin Sports World, Beachcomber Cafe´, Waitarere. A reminder subs and tractor fees are due, ring Colin Webber on 368-1912.

Boaties urged to carry multiple survival aids Lifejackets save lives, it’s that simple, Maritime New Zealand deputy director Lindsay Sturt said. But lifejackets can’t call for help and that’s why the organisation recommends boaties

also carry at least two means of communication that will work when wet. This could include an emergency distress beacon, waterproof VHF radio or distress flares.

Mr Sturt said people often rely on cellphones but coverage can be limited and they should always be carried in a waterproof bag. Preparation can also go a long way towards preventing

trouble occurring. Skippers should ensure their boats are s e a w or t h y a n d c h e c k t h e weather forecast and water conditions before heading out. Alcohol should also be avoided.

SPORT IN BRIEF RSA triples The Monday triples played at the RSA Bowling Club proved to be a tough competition as it was played in strong gusty winds. The winners were Woody Woodmass, Colleen Fuller, Lynette Metcalfe with four wins, 20 ends and 30 points. Second Garry Burns, Jon Graumans and Bryce Nairn with three wins, 23 ends and 44 points. In third place the team of John Cole, Joe Wynek and Anne Shearan with three wins, 18 ends and 37 points. Monday triples will continue as normal on Anniversary Day January 20. The finals of the women’s singles championship was played last Saturday between Jean McLeese and Heather Pratt, both from Shannon. Defending champion Heather Pratt retained her championship title with a 21-13 win.

Walker's compact size and maneuverability allow mowing and trimming to small landscaped areas whilst reducing labour - places where other rider mowers simply won't fit and walk-behind mowers or trimmers are used instead. These rugged mid-size machines are built for the rigours of daily commercial operation and are designed to mow virtually any property; places with rolling contours, irregular shapes, tight corners and open spaces. Walker Mowers are not just assembled, they're engineered. Every detail has been proven in the field. Every design element has been tested and refined. We believe that in the power equipment industry these days, many people are buying zero-turn "Z" riding mowers based on some factors which are just not fundamentally sound. Is your next riding mower purchase being determined by empty points like ground speed, price or overkill of horsepower? We think there are a few things you need to know before signing on the bottom line. Come and talk to us today to find out more about these amazing machines. Here are some comments from very satisfied customers..... • I really appreciate the beautiful manicured finish and the high dump catcher system as health issues have restricted me from lifting grass bags onto the trailer. Mike & Marg Olsen, Paraparaumu • I enjoy driving my mower so much that I mow seven other roadside verges in my cul-de-sac as well as doing the edges with his Stevens lawn edger which clips onto the side of my Walker. Maurice & Ann Spiers, Waikanae • I love the reliability, ease of use and quality of performance. Tim & Lyn O’Connor, Waikanae

• Motivation. There are varying opinions about leveraging the power of the allowance, but you don’t always have to motivate your children with money. What do your kids love to do? Depending on their age, think of what would really motivate your kids to get off their behinds and help out. More time playing video games? A sleepover with friends? A sweet treat? • Consistency. Once your kids are motivated to help out, there needs to be a level of consistency over time in order to set expectations for your children. It’s not feasible to buy your kids a brand new video game every time he/she takes out the trash, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be consistent with what you present as motivation. Confused? Let us explain. Let’s say for every new chore your kids become responsible for i.e. taking out the trash or emptying the dishwasher, they get a larger motivational item i.e. new game, a night at the movies, sleepover, etc. and for every time they maintain responsibilty for that chore, you reward them with a small treat. One of our fellow Molly Maid moms created a “treat basket” that her daughters get to choose from every Sunday after they’ve completed their chores for the week. • Music. Singing and playing music during chores is a great motivator. Young kids might like to sing the beloved Barney Clean-Up Song or jam out to their own tunes on their iPods. Have your kids pitch in around the house during their many hours of free time. Don’t ask them to vacuum or do the laundry. Instead, pick fun chores that they won’t moan about and pay them with rewards such as a trip to the ice cream shop or an extra hour of video game time. Washing the car and walking the dog make excellent chores for kids during summer, and they also teach responsibility.

SERVICE DIRECTORY

Beautiful properties using best brands In a world of throw-away gadgetry and cheap and nasty products KC Motors has a proud history of service, experience and a top quality range for the district since 1956. Offering solutions, not salesmen, KC Motors aims to help its customers keep their properties beautiful using the best brands and the best backup. This is based on its team’s extensive product knowledge, KC Motors history in the business, as well as great parts and service backup loan equipment for breakdowns and pickup and

delivery. The KC Motors team has a great blend of older staff with a wealth of knowledge, along with younger staff that provides the energy and drive to make things happen. KC Motors staff sees it well placed to deal with new trends in the outdoor equipment industry: including the growing lifestyle block market which is only getting stronger around the region. Another trend in the market is the move away from cheap, buy on impulse, one year and throw it away the next type of products. There has been a noticeable increase at KC Motors in customer’s spending money on products, especially generators and water blasters, which are built on quality and strength, rather than on price. It is not unusual for staff to see customers who have bought a water blaster from a big box store or online and have it rapidly breakdown, something that strengthens KC Motors obligation to sell on quality, not price. A case in point is KC’s line of Walker Mowers; rugged machines built for the

rigors of daily commercial operation and designed to mow virtually any property. Every detail of the Walker design has been tested in the field and as a result every Walker is reliable, designed to perfection and manufactured to give top performance. Nothing shows the reliability of the Walker more than the satisfaction of customers such as Repi Wright from Levin Holiday Park. Proud owner of a Walker MCGHS, Repi mows almost two hectares of land at the park property. He says: I used to spend six to seven hours on my old rideon, but have now reduced this to between three and a quarter and four hours of mowing time. Repi says a strong selling point of the mowers is the service and after-sales support received from KC Motors. KC Motors is really accommodating and happy to help when you need assistance. The quality range of top gear continues with some of the best brands such as Stihl, Honda, Bearcat, BIllygoat and Hustler mowers and an excellent region wide service including picking up and delivering

MAKING A DIFFERENCE: Horowhenua vet Simon Clark.

Cut-price clinics helping prevent parvo virus The dog-killing canine parvo virus is taking a hammering in Horowhenua. ‘‘In 2013 we tested 37 dogs for Parvo,’’ Simon Clark BVSc, head small animal veterinarian at Levin and Horowhenua Veterinary Centre told Horowhenua Chronicle. ‘‘Of those tested, three came back positive.’’ Catching the virus early is key in chances of patient survival. ‘‘The three dogs which were caught and treated early are well and thriving,’’ Dr Clark said. Instances of parvo presenting at the clinic have declined since Dr Clark started the initiative of holding a monthly ‘budget’ vaccination clinic. ‘‘Last year vastly fewer dogs were diagonised with Parvo than in the years when the vaccine clinic did not exist,’’ he said. This will be the third year the clinic has been operating. Qualified vet nurses conduct the one-hour clinics on the third Saturday of the month at Levin and Horowhenua Veterinary Centre carpark on the corner of Queen and Cambridge streets. ‘‘We charge $40 to cover costs, no booking is required and no previous history is necessary,’’ Dr Clark said. Tomorrow will be the first clinic for 2014.
