a-half-year separation from Husain Abbas, Batool’s husband and father of the couple’s children, five-year-old Aqeela and Tahera, three.

From his confinement in a Bahraini prison, the father of recently arrived Whakatane woman, Batool AlKhawaja, bid his daughter farewell, his life sentence not dimming the happiness he felt for his daughter and her family.

Familiar with the Christchurch mosque attacks, the internationally prominent human rights activist, imprisoned since 2011 under Bahrain’s widely criticised anti-terror laws for his involvement in supposed anti-government organisations, was impressed with New Zealand’s leader and her handling of the attacks. “He has much praise for Jacinda Ardern,” says Batool. “He said to me ‘it seems like you are going to a good place’.”

Fleeing threats to his safety and the security of his family, Husain had boarded a plane in Bahrain in 2016, flying to New Zealand on a quest for legal recognition as a political refuge. The two-and-a-half-year journey that would begin on his arrival, his search for somewhere to stay, for an immigration lawyer that could help him, ended earlier this year when he gained New Zealand residency for both himself, and his family. “I had ticked all the boxes for status as a political refugee,” says Husain, but nevertheless, the process has been scary, and long. Husain’s story began in 2011 with his own imprisonment in Bahrain. The small but strategically important island in the Persian Gulf with its population of nearly two million, of which only an estimated 600,000

are Bahraini, has a long history of unrest between the Sunni ruling family and its Shia Muslim population. Sunni Muslims represent the minority of Bahraini Muslims (an estimated 38 percent) and include Bahrain’s ruling royal family and associates. Shia Muslims constitute more than 60 percent of Bahraini Muslims. The island state has a long history of human rights violations with its ruling class having frequently come under fire on charges of carrying out unjust imprisonments, systematic torture, suppression of dissent and repression of freedom of speech. The Bahraini Uprising of 2011 – a series of wide-scale protests aimed at bringing equality and greater political freedom to Bahrain’s people – took place during a background of considerable unrest in the Middle East. Anti-government and prodemocracy protests in Egypt and Tunisia (since referred to as The Arab Spring) were also targeting what were viewed as oppressive regimes and policies in their own countries. The unrest in Bahrain saw a swift return of actions by authorities that had long been under the watch of international human rights groups. A Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry report estimated that 2929 people were imprisoned during February and

Bahrain NOTE FROM THE EDITOR

March of 2011, with at least 700 remaining in prison at the end of that year.

says Batool, who was present, along with her mother and sisters.

Other estimates, however, indicate the number of prisoners being held (at any one time) in the years since 2011 to be around 4000. Many of the prisoners were tortured and not all who were imprisoned, survived.

“They were Bahraini Special Forces and members of the National Security Agency who are known for operating outside of the law.

Husain was arrested in 2011 alongside his father-in-law and brother-in-law in a late-night raid on the family’s apartment. “About 20 armed and masked men arrived,�

“They attacked my father. They beat him so badly he was unconscious. They dragged him down the stairs by his neck. And they took Husain and my brother-in-law, too�. She says another of her brothers-in-law

present in the apartment at the time was beaten, but left behind, while the women were locked in a room in the apartment and prevented from leaving.

Reading a story like that of recent arrivals to Whakatane, Bahraini couple Batool AlKhawaja and Husain Abbas, made us at Eastern Bay Life realise how fortunate we are to live in a country where we can’t be imprisoned and tortured for expressing our political opinions. It is good to be reminded occasionally of the freedoms we take for granted. I hope our readers find this story as eye-opening as we did. We also wish to remind readers that today is Daffodil Day. The Cancer Society needs all the help it can get supporting the one in three New Zealanders affected by cancer. Car enthusiasts in the Eastern Bay held a very successful fundraiser for the society last weekend. We have photos of the event on pages 8 and 9. Enjoy.

It would be a “terrible� month before the family received any word of the whereabouts or condition of their men. It first came through a lawyer, Batool says. Continued: Page 4

finding safety Continued from page 3 “We heard that my father was in a very bad way. He had survived, but he had been severely tortured. He’d been hospitalised in a heavily-guarded hospital and then taken to a military prison.” She says according to a later report by the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry, referring to her father as Case Number 8, her father had received a blow to the side of the face that broke his jaw and four other bones in his face. She says the family later found out he had needed 36 screws and 18 metal plates surgically inserted to repair the damage.

Then came word from Husain. Handed a phone, he had been strictly instructed to say three words to his family only. “Bring me clothes.” He was being detained at the same location as his brother-in-law. Both men had been tortured. On reflection, Husain considers he was lucky. He was sentenced to six months imprisonment and later released. “They probably would have imprisoned me for longer, but I think they couldn’t make any of the charges with longer prison sentences stick.” Nevertheless, Husain suffered systematic torturing and beatings. He endured time “under-

ground”, the location of solitary confinement where he says he was forced to stand for days and nights on end, being beaten whenever he could no longer do so. “People died down there,” he says. “They would use waterboarding and electrocution and other horrific things to try to get people to confess to things that they’d never ever done. They would force you to sign things but by then you wouldn’t even know what you were signing.” Husain says while in underground isolation, Batool’s brother-in-law was brought down and held nearby. “It was a tactic they used. Putting

members of the same family in the same area and torturing them. I could hear my brother-in-law screaming.” “The prisons in Bahrain are full,” he says. “But if you go into them, you don’t find criminals. You don’t find murderers and rapists and violent people. You find doctors and lawyers and academics and anyone the government thinks is working against them, including juveniles. The whole system is so very corrupt. It’s barbaric. And they spend millions and millions of dollars on blinding the rest of the world to what they really do.” It was a further six months after Husain’s release that Batool’s brother-in-law was freed, but Batool’s father, was not.

IT'S TIME

As a former president and co-founder of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights who also held positions within several prominent international human rights organisations, Batool’s father was charged with “attempting to overthrow the government” (amongst other such charges), all linked to his leadership or involvement with the 2011 protests. He was sentenced to life in prison. Leaving Bahrain for New Zealand to reunite with her husband, and reunite their children with their father was, Batool says, difficult. “Of course, I am where I should be, and my father understood the need for us to leave. But it was hard to say goodbye to him and also to leave my mother and sister.”

in a new land Batool has three sisters, two of them vocal activists now living outside of Bahrain. “Unlike me and my other sister who remains in Bahrain. We are quieter,” she laughs. Today, the Shia Muslim family is busy making a new life together in Whakatane. Husain has had time to settle here. An engineer, he successfully applied for a job at a Kawerau mill in the months following his arrival in New Zealand – prior to which he did “any work he could get” to remain self-reliant. The “green” of the country that had struck him on his arrival continues to bring him joy. “I have very good friends here and they’ve taught me to hunt and fish and I just love it here. I feel so lucky to have worked where I do and to be living in this town in this country. I’m very happy here.” For both he and Batool, it is the friendliness of people in Whakatane that they constantly mention. “I have even been waved to by a policeman,” Husain says, amazed at experiencing such a thing. As a Shia Muslim in Bahrain, he says the police force (largely made up of people from other countries, “mercenaries,” he calls them) would typically treat him with disdain, at the very least. “If you stop at a checkpoint and hand them your ID, they might look at it and return it by throwing it at your face. And if you so much as look back at them, you’ll likely get slapped, or even arrested. Checkpoints are places to be feared.” He says it took a long time to realise he didn’t need to fear every person in a posi-

tion of authority in New Zealand. “It is a different world.”

very happy here which makes us very happy as well.”

For Batool, the level of friendliness directed at her as a newcomer is something she says she had not expected. “Coming to a Western country, a Muslim woman wearing a headscarf, I expected racism and to be isolated, but so far, I have experienced nothing of the sort apart from a boy calling ‘Allahu akbar’ as he rode by on his bike with his friends. And he was obviously just trying to be funny.”

Asked whether his months in prison, his torture, have left him with scars he cannot heal, Husain puts it this way. “I don’t feel I have any right to dwell on my experiences when other people are still coping with so much more. Yes, I have some issues, but I can manage them. I have learned to move past was has happened. As Muslims, we believe that every wrong will be righted in the end. I know that ultimately it will be paid for”.

For Batool, and her father’s continued incarceration, she says she remains hopeful that justice will find its way and that he will be freed. It is the hope that her father carries himself, and with considerable faith, she says. “He is a man who always puts others before himself, is always concerned about how everyone else is doing. He remains optimistic. He is always optimistic. About everything.”

What she has experienced so far, is, she says, acceptance and curiosity. And with the girls’ new school and pre-school, an open willingness and sensitivity to things that, as Muslims, are important to her family. Not naturally an outdoors person, Batool says she is finding her way in her new country. An avid reader and top scholar, she completed a nursing degree in Bahrain – and, Husain adds, achieved the highest marks in her batch – before having her career blocked by Bahrain’s Ministry of the Interior due to her father’s human rights activity. “They prevented me from doing the hospital work I needed to become fully registered so I could not work as a nurse.” For Aqeela and Tahera, transition to their new lifestyle is coming easily and there is much to enjoy. “They absolutely love the outdoor playgrounds,” Batool says. With less public space in Bahrain and it often being “too hot to do things outdoors,” the ability to play outdoors so often is a novelty, and greatly enjoyed. She says the girls are doing well. “Their English is coming fast. They’re

clocking up guarding hours It’s hard to work out how Matthew Reihana-Asquith fits commitments to the Whakatane Surf Life Saving Club into his already busy sporting schedule. He joined the surf club three years ago, and last year, successfully qualified as a lifeguard.

by Lorraine Wilson

Matthew sees surf lifesaving as complementary to his primary sport as a competitive kayaker, building on many of the same skills and contributing considerably to his fitness level.

The Whakatane Surf Life Saving Club is preparing to turn out a new batch of lifeguards with its annual Lifeguard Award training to get under way next week.

“And I really enjoy it,” he says. “I spent two years as a rookie helping out where I could and just doing my part. Everyone needs to play a role at surf club. And last year, I sat my lifeguard award.”

But for the first time this year, the training will include an option for people who don’t really enjoy getting wet.

“I was playing rugby at the time it all started,” he says. “And I’ve stayed involved with fundraising for the trip ever since”. Bobby calves, haymaking, marshalling at motocross events and delivering firewood are some of his fundraising activities.“I’m still going on the trip on a play-if-needed basis.” Matthew spent his first summer as a qualified lifeguard patroller last year, and by the end of the summer, had

His involvement with the surf club and, specifically, with his lifeguard training, has brought a number of personal benefits. “It’s not just the physical skills. I learnt a lot about leadership and working as a team, about working with people who are very different to myself.” “It’s also provided me with opportunities to meet a lot of people and do things I would never have got to do, or had the confidence to do, otherwise.” Matthew will undertake a short lifeguard refresher course this year, an annual requirement of all trained lifeguards.

Instructor and committee member Michelle Cossey says the training for the new initiative, Patrol Support, is designed for those who may not like being in the sea, but who wish to support the club by assisting with its lifeguard patrols. She says qualifying to be part of Patrol Support will require the same training process as that of a lifeguard, but “minus the water component”. “Lifeguard patrols involve people carrying out various roles and trained Patrol Support members will be able to carry out all of these tasks except the actual water rescues.” “There’ve been calls for such a role to be available,” Michelle says. “Sometimes that’s from an individual

What better summer job could you have? And you learn a lot about yourself in the process too. It’s a good confidence builder.”

She says the upcoming course, which begins on September 4, will cater for both options. Offered each year by the club, the 12-session programme, which typically runs over runs over an eight-week period, covers all facets of lifeguarding, with successful participants leaving the course fully qualified as a surf lifeguard or, this year, a patrol supporter.

While some training sessions are held at the town pools, Michelle says the majority of the course,which includes both practical and theory components, takes place at the surf club at Ohope. High school students are able to earn NCEA credits for the course’s first aid component.

Components of the course include first aid – two days of training in skills specific to beach lifeguarding – rescues, identifying rips, signals and communication, health and safety, and various aspects of beach and surf environments. The course also includes fitness, Michelle says, with participants required to swim 400 metres in under nine minutes, and to complete a 600-metre run-swimrun exercise in under eight minutes, to pass. “People discover pretty early on whether they’re fit enough to do that, and that’s good, because if they’re not, they’ll have time to work on it”. “It’s a fantastic course,” she says. “I think it sets people

“I wasn’t in the water,” Alice says. “I was doing communications, radioing information through to the emergency services.” But it was a chance to test her newly acquired rescue skills and knowledge and she says her training definitely paid off. “The lifeguard award training was excellent,” she says. “You learn so much and it’s also social and fun.” But she says you need to be ready for it. “You have to be prepared and committed, but once you’ve got that sorted it’s not too hard.” Alice had spent the previous two years in the club as a rookie, the surf club programme designed for 12- and 13-year-olds who are heading toward their lifeguard award training. Rookies learn many of the components of the training, though are not yet qualified to perform rescues. Alice says it provides a strong foundation. “I was pretty well prepared for the training, but some people also come and do it without having been in surf club at all. We get all kinds of people doing it, lots of different ages.” For Alice, the progression to becoming a trained lifeguard was something of a foregone conclusion.

It was just a matter of time.” Alice also took on a new role in the club last season, becoming a coach of the Sand Crabs (the Surf Life Saving club’s youngest recruits) and taking full responsibility for the five-year-olds. Her ability to do so, she says, is an example of the skills she has gathered through her surf club involvement, physical and practical skills, and more personal ones. “Surf club has taught me a lot of things and I’ve gained a lot from it. A lot of confidence, a lot of knowledge of how I work best. I feel proud to wear the uniform and be on patrol because I know I’ve worked hard for it. And aside from that, it’s just nice to be at the beach watching families having fun and being part of keeping them safe.”

cars for cancer Whether they were Ford fanatics, hot rod hounds or connoisseurs of fine vintage vehicles, people who love their cars turned out in force for the Daffodil Day Rally for Cancer in Whakatane last weekend. The rally was part of a nationwide event to raise funds ahead the New Zealand Cancer Society’s Daffodil Day annual fundraiser. Whakatane Vintage Car Club captain Barry Keene says 74 cars turned up at The Hub on Sunday to enter the rally. Car enthusiasts brought their cherished vehicles

from Tauranga and Opotiki amongst other places. Together with the owners’ $10 entry fees and a collection by volunteers from people coming to view the cars, a total of $1128 was made from the event. The cars and drivers assembled at 1pm and were given yellow and blue ribbons to attach to their vehicles before heading off for a parade through Whakatane, ending up back at The Hub where people were able to admire the cars close up.

tough guys and gals More than 100 students from two Eastern Bay primary schools got wet and dirty last week when they took part in the annual Tough Guy and Gal challenge in Rotorua. Whakatane’s Allandale School took 73 ”tough” year 3 to 6 children to the event while Edgecumbe Primary School had 54 students competing. Held at Lakes Ranch, near Hell’s Gate, more than 1000 children took part in the event, which is in its sixth year for juniors.

Year 3 and 4 students competed on a 1.5 kilometre course, while years 5, 6, 7 and 8 took on a three kilometre course. The competition involved scaling a hillside using rope as an aid, climbing obstacles, crawling under tunnels and through a spider maze, not to mention the rivers of mud that were a highlight for most children. Allandale School sees great benefit from participation in this challenging event and takes carloads of students over to Rotorua each year. This year it had a record number of

students involved. “We feel it is growing a culture of perseverance and resilience, as well as the huge satisfaction and success our tamariki gain from finishing,” says teacher Janene Giordano. “Our children wore their medals with pride for days afterward.” Edgecumbe Primary teacher Matt Hata says the weather was expected to be thunderstorms and heavy rain, but the sun shone for the event.

“However, there was heaps of mud and water. The kids absolutely had a ball, which you could see all over their faces.” “They got covered in mud and couldn’t stop talking about it. There were a few tired children on the way home.” Hata says all the children received a medal, a certificate and a Hell’s Pizza coupon for their efforts.

THE ECR PLUS IS AT THE HEART OF YOUR MILKING AUTOMATION SYSTEM.

Craig Savage WHAT’S UP WITH THE GLOBAL ECONOMY? Here in New Zealand we all know that what happens overseas impacts us here. Lately this has been brought into sharper focus with concerns around the global economy being a big part of our own Reserve Bank’s decision to cut the OCR by 50 basis points to an all time low of 1%.

It combines the most advanced ACR/ Detacher functions with the ability to collect and display information on how well your herd is performing at milking time. Each dairy farm needs a milking system to suit its own unique conditions and the ECR Plus has been developed with this in mind.

Adrian Orr was at pains to point out that the New Zealand economy was going well, and that we should all be out shopping and spending, but it is clear there is real concern about a global slowdown on the way. More recently Mr Orr has expressed frustration that Central Government are not ‘doing their bit’ to support the economy by releasing the purse strings a bit.

It not only works as a powerful ACR/ Detacher but also allows the operator to add other automation options to collect milking information. ,|8» ŒO†ÀXa´ X8»8 Œ Éa†XV pÇ rates, milking time, pulsation control and measuring milk conductivity for udder health issues.

Most people and businesses looking to plan will be trying to determine what a slowdown or even recession would mean for them. As the prospect of a downturn becomes more likely, businesses will think twice about taking on more staff, be more cautious with expansion plans and look to hold lower stock levels.

If you’re looking for yield data, simply plug in a milk meter or yield indicator. Plug in other options like SmartSPRAY and SmartD-TECT at a time that suits or when the budget allows.

In New Zealand we have many thousands of very small businesses run by ‘mum and dad’ operators. Often any business lending is secured against equity in their own home. This has allowed a lot of business growth over the last decade or so as house prices have risen, however any sign that property prices may be affected will have a huge impact on business owners with housing backed debt, or those who would have otherwise used home equity to start or expand their businesses. It is always hard in business to make risky decisions. Should the clouds darken over the global economy, businesses are much more likely to become very conservative with their plans.

It is a common misconception that windows produce condensation. This is not true; windows cannot produce condensation. Condensation is formed when moisture in the air comes into contact with a cooler surface such as a window. The main cause of condensation is your family’s activity within your home.

NZWindows have a range of passive ventilation options available that are built into the window frame, such as the Sashvent and Aerovent system, to the sophisticated Ventient system.

The ECR Plus can connect to a Bail Display, which shows alerts and presents milking data in realtime.

Double glazing can also help keep the surface of the inside glass warmer to reduce the likelihood of condensation forming. Though, you must remember that moisture is still present within the home.

The ECR Plus also integrates with our NaviGate Dairy Management System, to manage and sort your animals automatically. It presents data from the ECR Plus suite of products so you can make better management decisions for your herd.

Time to downsize? The decision to downsize is often driven by the desire for a simpler lifestyle with less maintenance and lower costs. While downsizing can be daunting, especially when confronted with a lifetime of possessions to sort, it can also be a liberating experience, here’s some thoughts‌ 1) Be proactive – While the thought of leaving the family home can be uncomfortable, you will have less control over the move if the likes of a VLJQLĂ€FDQWKHDOWKLVVXHDULVHV'RQ¡W wait until it’s too late, do it when you can make choices. 2) Assess your ‘stuff’ – After years of accumulating, it’s time to seriously consider what you truly need and what to quit. Make some extra cash by selling higher value items or derive pleasure by giving them a new lease on life by donating or gifting. 3) Amenities – If you are going to make the effort to downsize, try to future proof. Consider the convenience to the people and places you visit most, such as family & friends, shops, medical professionals, etc. 4) Research the market - Most people assume a smaller home means a smaller price, while generally true, it can in some cases mean paying as much for your new buy as where you have come from. Finding the right property may take some time and we would recommend working with an agent to keep informed of the latest listings. You can go to the market VXEMHFWWR\RXUĂ€QGLQJVRPHWKLQJ suitable.

new laws for transporting animals nant cows, or treatable, and as such none of those animals should be put on the truck until they’re treated or can be euthanised on the farm if they’re untreatable”.

animal welfare by Carey Conn

The new legislation allows the ministry to issue fines to farmers and transport providers for low-level offending instead of a full prosecution process.

If you’ve got farm animals to transport, make sure they aren’t sick, injured, lame or heavily pregnant. If they are, you could be in breach of new animal welfare regulations that came into force last year.

The Fit For Transport app is available as a free download from iTunes or Google Play. The app is designed to work on smartphones and tablets while offline.

To help people become familiar with the new legislation, the Ministry for Primary Industries has developed a free phone app called Fit For Transport that details travel requirements for different categories of animals: cows, calves, sheep, deer and pigs.

If there is any doubt about whether any animal is fit to be transported, a vet should be consulted. If your animals are too tall for a standard truck, or have horns or antlers, tell your stock agent and transport provider so the journey can be planned appropriately.

The purpose of the app is to provide guidance for transporters, farmers and everyone across the supply chain when determining if livestock is fit for transport. Topics covered include injuries during transport, back rub, lameness, mastitis and udders, late pregnancy, eyes, horns, injuries and defects, poor body condition, antlers and velvetting, and young bobby calves. Restrictions on the use of prodders are detailed, as well as advice for standing animals off green feed and preventing downer cows.

Members of the public who have concerns about the welfare of farm animals can call the ministry’s animal welfare line, 0800 008333. Ministry veterinarian and director of animal health and welfare Dr Chris Rodwell says, “Don’t take the risk with unfit stock – it’s not good for the animal and if they don’t arrive in acceptable condition you could end up with no return and a fine of $500.” In June this year, Radio New Zealand reported that vets at meat works had spotted 431

offences over the preceeding eight months. They included lameness, mastitis, cows giving birth in slaughter house pens, cows with cancer in their eyes and sheep with ingrowing horns digging into their faces. According to the ministry’s acting compliance manager Gary Orr, “All of these things are either preventable, as in the case with preg-

is a blue line too much to ask? It’s that time again. Local body elections are on the horizon and campaigning has begun in earnest. There are huge pressures on local bodies and I admire people prepared to stand and get to grips with such issues as the effect of climate change on our housing and infrastructure. In our disaster-prone part of the country we need confidence in the priorities they set if we are to sleep soundly in our beds at night. Sadly I suspect that lower rates might not cut the mustard if we crave safety for our communities in the uncertain decades to come.

grey matters by Ruth Gerzon A fortnightly series for seniors by Ruth Gerzon from Eastern Bay Villages. Ruth can be contacted by phoning 027 4308149 or email easternbayvillages@gmail.com. Over time we have found ways for the Blue Line Project to solve issues facing other community groups.

Many readers will want to hear candidates speak, so we are collaborating with Grey Power on two meetings to enable them to woo voters. We will also hold a meeting in Edgecumbe for mayoral candidates and those standing for the Rangitaiki plains. Details are at the bottom of this column.

School children’s safety is a major concern for parents. Reluctant to let their children walk to school, they clog our roads with cars as the school day begins and ends. Yet a blue line on the footpath between key places – schools, Kopeopeo, town – could show the safest way for children to travel, routes with good kerbs and safe crossings.

Meanwhile, I will highlight one project of importance to our members: the Blue Line Project. You may never have heard of it, because this wonderful, cost-effective solution to many woes has been ignored and buried by Whakatane District Council for the past 15 months.

A break in the line at driveways could remind children to check for cars backing out. Parents can teach their children to follow the blue line, even if it is just for the last kilometre before school, alleviating congestion around school entrances.

At the original Ki Mua consultation two years ago, a group of disabled people and seniors spoke of their frustration at having their needs ignored by council and businesses. From this arose Inclusion Whakatane, a coalition of disability groups and seniors, two groups who make up 27 percent of the population.

Then there are tourists and newcomers needing an easy way to orient themselves in our town. It would make life easier for them if we can say (and put on the web), “Follow the blue line,” between key places: the information centre, wharf, Mataatua marae, museum, Warren Cole Walkway, Kopeopeo. People who have walked between the domestic

To highlight the problem, they persuaded some brave councillors to try navigating our streets in mobility scooters. Badly designed kerbs, a lack of safe crossings and potholes put users in danger and leave mobility scooters needing constant repair, their users shaken and bruised. Subsequently a few kerbs were improved. Knowing the council could not afford to make all streets safe soon, Inclusion Whakatane asked for key routes to be fixed first, along with a couple of new pedestrian crossings. A blue line painted on the footpath could alert mobility scooter users to safe passage.

and international terminals at Auckland Airport will know how useful such lines can be. This clever, cost effective solution to so many issues was quietly dropped when it was subsumed under the Active Whakatane banner, the new, developing, strategy focused on cycling routes and getting people walking. Some initiatives have begun but not the Blue Line Project. Well over a year after this project was proposed we have yet to see a concrete plan, timeline or trial in place. Better recreation and alternatives to car use are admirable goals but should not take precedence over the basic rights of disabled people to safely access their doctor or buy a loaf of bread. Both councillors and council staff need a whole dollop more empathy for their plight. Retired baby boomers are an assertive lot and I can envision mobility scooter blockades of key roads. That just might give able-bodied people a real sense of the frustration felt by others who cannot safely access shops, parks or our beloved library.

I suggest local body candidates prepare for some searching questions on this issue, and others of interest to seniors. Blockades might not be needed if we can vote in councillors willing to listen to all sectors of their community. Most seniors vote so candidates would be well advised to listen to our voices. Voters are invited to three meetings organised for candidates to present their ideas:

Whakatane Grey Power and Eastern Bay Villages have organised two meetings at Knox Presbyterian Church in Domain Road: Councillor candidates: Thursday, September 5, 1.30pm to 3.30pm Mayoral candidates: Tuesday, September 10, 10am - 12.30pm

Edgecumbe Mayoral and Rangitaiki ward candidates: Tuesday, September 24, 10.30am cup of tea, 11am to 12.30pm at St David’s Church hall in College Road. Please RSVP to Ruth Gerzon if you would like to stay on for lunch.

To view all our animals check out our Facebook page and website: www.kawerauspca.org.nz Simple? Cost effective? Yes. Understood? No. One council staff member later told me there was no need for a blue line as scooter users would soon find the best way to travel. Seriously? After facing the danger of being stuck on the road several times, their bodies and scooters battered and bruised, eventually each new mobility scooter user – and there are plenty of new ones each year – will find the best route. Clearly anyone who thinks like that has never experienced problems with accessibility.

It will be a meeting of minds and talent when indigenous Taiwanese weavers collaborate with Maori weavers in a oneday exhibition in Kawerau next week.

Anastazja says the exhibition is a demonstration and sharing of cultural weaving knowledge between indigenous Taiwanese weavers and The Weavers of Kawerau. She says the two Taiwanese weavers have been travelling around New Zealand primary schools teaching children how to weave bookmarks with traditional Taiwanese methods.

doco focuses on food waste Liesel says the documentary highlights the volumes of edible but imperfect food that is being thrown out before reaching consumers.

by James Sandbrook Opotiki’s Deluxe Theatre is screening a documentary that it hopes will raise people’s appetite for conservation this weekend.

“I find that people in the Eastern Bay and Opotiki are always really on board with food waste,” she says. The issue also comes up in retail, where slightly damaged goods are deemed unfit for sale, or stocked foods that are past their use-by dates are taken to landfills which results in methane gas being released into the atmosphere.

In conjunction with Envirohub Bay of Plenty the theatre will show the Eastern Bay-first screening of Just Eat It. The documentary film focuses on food waste, showcasing how much food is wasted around the world on a large, and small, scale.

“Sometimes we need to do the right thing, rather than the most affordable thing,” Liesel says.

Envirohub project manager Liesel Carnie is expecting a good turnout given the local support for conservation.

While methane gas is not as plentiful as carbon dioxide, Liesel says it is more potent. Envirohub Predator Free Bay of Plenty co-ordinator Emma Woods says the docu-

“The Eastern Bay has a massive appetite for these kinds of events,” she says. “The film shows how big the issue really is.”

unrealities of modern movie making book review by Diane McCarthy Nailing Down the Saint Craig Cliff Penguin Random House $38

“Smart, funny and thought-provoking” is how this novel by Kiwi author Craig Cliff is billed. The smart and funny part I get, but the thoughtprovoking part – or where Cliff was going with this hunt for levitating saints – went a little over my head. The novel follows a location-scouting road trip through Italy by a Hollywood-based Kiwi film director. After some short-lived success in Tinsel-town, Duncan Blake has been given a couple of bum steers that have toppled him from the stairway to stardom. He now works as a head waiter in an unfashionable Los Angeles chain restaurant. When he gets the chance to scout locations for an eminent director’s passion project, a biopic about Saint Joseph of Copertino, he jumps at the chance to get his career back on track, despite having to

be separated from his wife and their young son, who is showing signs of regressive autism. As he sets off around Italy, Duncan is joined by childhood friend Mack, a former shut-in who has become a big gun in the gaming world. Mack sways Duncan away from his assigned task to research a film about a levitation cult based in Italy, led by a Kiwi man. Among a string of hilarious mishaps that include a porn-related technological faux pars, hair-raising Italian driving failures and murderous nuns, Duncan must confront his own materialist worldview to re-evaluate the dreams he has been chasing. Where Cliff loses me is how any of this relates to Duncan having to let go of rationalism to allow himself to believe people can fly. There is a sticky area here where rationalism and materialism become confused. However, the novel is smart and full of surprises. Cliff ’s take on life in Hollywood had me convinced he must have experienced this world first-hand and I was surprised to read his bio to find he hasn’t. His research on the little-known saint that is the focus of this story and the snappy dialogue give this story a fly-on-the-wall documentary realism with a satirical edge that is hugely enjoyable.

FULL OF SURPRISES: Kiwi author Craig Cliff takes on Hollywood, saints and Italian drivers in Nailing Down the Saint.

rules of making book review by Whakatane library staff Every Tool’s a Hammer Adam Savage

You name it, Adam Savage has probably made it or has plans to and also blown some of it up as well.

Friday, August 30, 2019

Every Tool’s a Hammer also features learnings from incredible makers and creators, including special effects maestro Jamie Hynemann, actor Nick Offerman, Pixar director Andrew Stanton, Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro, artist Tom Sachs and chef Traci des Jardins.

Now the star of television show Mythbusters and one of the most beloved figures in science and tech, he has made another amazing thing – a very cool book about creativity.

Adam Savage has created some great words that are bound to inspire you to build, make, invent, explore and enjoy the thrills of being a creator.

Every Tool’s a Hammer comes with the subtitle Life Is What You Make It and is a treasure-trove of creative inspiration and practical tips.

“Making is more than the physical act of building. It’s dancing, sewing. It’s cooking. It’s writing songs. It’s breaking new trails both literally and figuratively. Making … is simply a new name for one of the oldest human endeavours: creation,” he says in the introduction.

The master myth buster shares his golden rules of creativity and, importantly, how to follow through and successfully make your ideas into reality.

EBLIFE |

The book is Savage’s lively chronicle of his life as a maker. Through stories from 40 plus years of making, moulding, building and breaking, as well as lessons he has learned along the way, he serves up a toolbox of problem solving. This is complete with a shop’s worth of notes on the tools, techniques and materials he uses most often.

Make your way to the HEG Whakatane Library and track down Every Tool’s a Hammer with the call number 680 SAV.

voice of power sound advice music review by Chris Casey The New Adventures of PP Arnold PP Arnold Immediate Records

As the saying goes, it’s been a long time between drinks – 51 years to be more accurate. PP Arnold’s last release in 1968 saw her break out from being an Ikette, a backing singer for Ike and Tina Turner. Gigging with and being mentored by Tina allowed her the confidence to pursue a new solo career. While touring with The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger and manager Andrew Oldham convinced PP to sign to Immediate Records. The experience of being a woman of colour in the United States, but travelling with “white” Englishmen was a revelation.

The level of artistic acceptance and madcap fun drew her to England. Her breakthrough hit was recording Cat Stevens’ The First Cut is the Deepest. The song became an anthem for break-ups and heartbreakers, hardly used though for weddings and funerals. Psychedelic rhythm and blues collaborations followed, with The Small Faces on (If You Think You’re) Groovy and a defining vocal on Poor Boy by folkie Nick Drake. Her impact on northern soul is immense. Her range could be similar to Dusty Springfield and Petula Clark, with soaring vocals on beds of strings and brass. Then she’d switch to a Phil Spector “Wall of Sound”. Tours with multiple artists, including Pink Floyd, saw PP keep up the pace. As trends, fashion, labels and writers changed, PP’s career waned and she retired to Spain. She was pursued years later and co-produced by Paul Weller (The Jam, Style Council) and Steve Cradock ( Ocean Colour Scene). Now in her 70s her voice is still a marvellous gift of power and control. Swooping from gospel soul on I Believe, she drops in covers by Linda Ronstadt-Mike

Nesmith on Different Drum, a 60s Ronettes style on Baby Blue and a moving fuzzy funereal organ on her tribute to her dead daughter, I’ll Always Remember You..(Debbie’s Song). The powerful Last Thoughts of Woody Guthrie, a Bob Dylan spoken work masterpiece, muscles up with the ethic of protest. It grows and grows in tempo, to funky guitars and percussion, and a brass section that James Brown would groove to. This is a perfect example of PP Arnold’s versatility and truth to power. She had a long documented tough early life, where her soul is broken, mended and protected by her love of music and people, and by people who love and support her. She’s comfortable in any style and in her 70s skin. A double bill of PP Arnold and Mavis Staples would be the dream “guess who’s coming for dinner”.

celebration of famiglia The best of Italian cinema will be showcased at the 2019 Cinema Italiano Festival when it comes to Whakatane next week.

Of course, the festival also celebrates the best of Italian comedy. Put Nonna in the Freezer should have everyone in stitches, as will the closing night film, My Big Gay Italian Wedding.

The Studio Italia festival is on a seven-month, 15-venue, nationwide tour and will feature at Whakamax from September 3-8. Festival director and curator Paolo Rotondo says he has selected a line-up of great comedies, dramas, documentaries and classics that all have family at their core, infused with myriad forms of how “famiglia” shapes everything in Italian culture.

It is a beautiful, hilarious comedy. For Italians it is really funny because one of the two lead men in it is on TV as one of the most ruthless crime bosses in a Mafia series, and then you see him in this film doing a hugely comic role, like someone totally different, is really satisfying.

CLASSIC: Fellini’s remastered classic 8½ is not to be missed.

Paolo says this is the third time the festival has come to Whakatane.

Girl in the Fog is a thriller set in the Italian Alps and the lead actor is Tony Servillo, who audiences will know from his Oscar-winning role in The Great Beauty.

‘It is building up a really beautiful audience and following, so this year we have got even more films than we had last year,” he says.

“He is awesome, and the film is doing really well. It has been one of those sleeper hits around the country, people are loving it.”

Fourteen films will be shown over the six days, and a highlight will be Federico Fellini’s remastered classic 8½. “The film is probably in the top three films of all time. It is a crazy masterpiece. It is awesome.

There are many other not-to-be-missed films, including Gabriele Muccino’s impressive ensemble piece A Casa Tutti Bene, There’s No Place Like Home and Dogman from one of Italy’s most exciting film-makers Matteo Garrone.

“The opening night film is There’s No Place Like Home, which kind of encapsulates the theme of the festival, which is family this year. “Family is at the centre of Italian society and values and social structure, with all the

beauty, comedy, fun, madness and drama it brings. “I believe that the attitudes and values around family remain one of the great cultural assets of Italian society. The curation this year is a wonderful exploration of famiglia in

so many ways.” The festival will also feature Happy as Lazzaro, winner of the Palm d’Or at Cannes. “It is from a beautiful, female, Italian director, Alice Rohrwacher, and she is doing great things internationally.”

Paolo says there is a big hunger for culture now, especially in smaller towns. “We are loving it.”
