Cyclist hits out at ‘steep’ ramp Phillip Rollo

An elderly user of the new Richmond to Brightwater suspension bridge has hit out at the difficulty it takes to get off it, after he crashed his bike last week. Sixty-six year old Richmond resident Trevor Higgs was cycling home following a visit to Brightwater. The gradient of the ramp on the southern side was low enough

that he could comfortably cycle up it before proceeding across the bridge. When he got to the northern end he decided to cycle down the exit ramp, only to find himself flying head first over the handle bars. Stuart Hughes, the project manager for the 80 metre long suspension bridge, confirmed that early feedback showed some concern over the steepness of the ramp. But he was adamant that cyclists should be

walking their bikes. “Right from the start there has been comment on the steepness of the ramps, etc. If you have it too flat then you’re encouraging them to ride down it,” say Stuart. Trevor, still recovering from some bruising, says there was no signage to indicate that he should have been walking, especially after the ease of getting onto the bridge from the other end. “I was in agony

there for awhile. Luckily for me, being Saturday, there were people around and they came to my aid,” says Trevor. A fellow cyclist offered Trevor a ride home in his ute, before he booked a visit with the duty doctor on Waimea Rd. There was also another accident, when a younger boy was “racing” down the ramp, SEE PAGE 2

Brightwater mural unveiled A new mural depicting the history of Brightwater was officially unveiled on Friday. The mural is situated at the Brightwater Domain and was opened after six months of work by community groups throughout the township. The majority of the painting was done by local artist Marie Greeks, the neighbour of Brightwater community association chairperson Dorothy Rogers. “It’s something great for the kindy kids to look up everyday,” says Dorothy. The wall shows historic icons of Brightwater such as the water wheel that powered the first street lamps. Waimea councillor Brian Ensor and two Brightwater School students unveiled the wall.

“I might drive through after work but to be honest I probably wouldn’t want it. It doesn’t really affect me but that’s only because I don’t go down there at night.”

“I don’t drive at night and I only go walking during the day time, not since I’ve got older.”

“I don’t go out, just because there’s not enough to do. I don’t go out in Richmond at night so I don’t know if it’s unsafe but I don’t think it is.”

“It can’t be too dark, it doesn’t really bother us. There’s always broken bottles but I can’t see how putting lights up will stop that.”

Thirty-two new street lights will be erected on Queen St to enhance safety, security and ambience at night. The LED lights will cost approximately $221,000 and will replace the current 19 light poles. The current lighting along Queen St within the CBD falls short of the standard of lighting required in high pedestrian areas. The new white lighting will look quite different to the current yellow light given off by the high pressure sodium lamps. There is expected to be an overall energy

saving based on a 30 year life of approximately $35,000, says Tasman District Council transportation projects engineer Steve Elkington. The new lights will be installed between Gladstone Rd and Salisbury Rd. They will make the section from Wensley Rd to Cambridge St “quite a bit brighter” and the sections either side to Gladstone Rd and Salisbury Rd also brighter, however the overall effect will be to create better rendition. The new lighting is part of the Queen St upgrade.

says Stuart. The bridge cost $265,000 to build and is situated between Pugh Rd and Bryant Rd. Stuart says there was current works being done to improve the safety of getting onto it. “The biggest critics are probably the bridge designers. We’ve had a review and there’s a few improvements to do. Our market research tells us that yes it is steep, that people must take it cautiously but that it’s great. The whole thing is brilliant.” Trevor says the accident has not put him off using the bridge but he will make sure he walks his bike down next time.

Natural joint care Hoddy’s growers set benchmark was a big step up in terms of what you the industry. These days the companies Phillip Rollo made simple had to do.” and organisations are getting bigger so Ever wondered how to look after your joints naturally? Maintaining comfortable, mobile joints is all about keeping your joint cartilage healthy. Cartilage is the “shock absorber” between your bones that cushions your joints and keeps them mobile. Unfortunately, daily life can gradually wear away at your cartilage, making it thinner and more brittle. Nutra-Life Joint Care is a potent blend of Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondroitin and other essential jointsupport minerals that helps to maintain healthy joint cartilage. It’s a unique combination of nutrients in an easy-to-swallow capsule that Kiwis trust more than any other joint support.*

Hoddy’s Orchard has scooped the New Zealand Young Fruit Grower of the Year award twice in as many years. Jos Bell was announced winner of the national award in Auckland last week, following work-mate Kevin Withington’s win in 2011. “It was a huge thrill to sit there and have my name called out,” says Jos. The national competition was “very similar” to the regional final, which saw contestants being tested on practical and business areas of the industry. “It

Jos also won the Ballance Leadership award. For that section he had to answer questions from the floor in a panel format. That was concluded by a speech to 400 people. Jos has been in the horticulture industry for eight years but still considers himself as a young grower. The official cut off age for the competition is 30 years old. Currently working with quality assurance over the packing season, Jos hopes to one day move into a management role. “I’ve still got a long way to go in

it’s not so much ownership but I’d like to move into management, quality assurance management, that sort of thing.” Because it is an industry award, the title shows he is doing his job well, which was humbling, says Jos. “It’s a huge boost for Hoddy’s. I can’t speak highly enough of my employers and they’ve backed me the whole way.” Kevin had given Jos plenty of encouragement leading up to the final. “It was great having him supporting me.” Jos received $2000 for his win.

Police led on high speed car chases Two high speed police chases in the past week have led to four arrests and no serious injury, say Nelson Police. A 25 year old Nelson woman has been arrested and charged with a range of offences after she was spotted by members of the public driving at high speeds along State Highway 60 near Mapua. A police patrol pursued the woman’s red Toyota Carina briefly about 12.50pm but, because the manner and speed of her driving was so dangerous, the officer abandoned the pursuit a short time later. About 1pm a police patrol spotted the woman on Gladstone Rd in Richmond and a second pursuit was initiated. That pursuit was also abandoned with the woman reaching speeds exceeding 130kmh in a 50kmh zone. The woman then drove along Whakatu Dr and a third officer picked up the pursuit. The vehicle was finally stopped in Nayland Rd where the woman abandoned the vehicle, running into a nearby residential property. Police chased the woman and arrested her a short time later. The woman has been charged with reckless driving, failing to stop, unlawfully being on a property and resisting arrest. Sergeant Jo Managh, of Nelson, says police are requesting that any members of the public who witnessed this incident to come forward with any information they may have to help in the enquiry. Meanwhile two days earlier, three youths were in custody after fleeing from police in a stolen

vehicle. The youths are believed to have then stolen a red Toyota Hilux ute from a property in Hoddy Rd, Appleby. Police located the youths driving the Hilux vehicle south near Kawatiri. They failed to stop for police and a pursuit ensued. Road spikes were laid between Owen River and Murchison and two of the fleeing vehicle’s tyres were deflated. The driver continued on at low speed without tyres. The trio abandoned their vehicle in the Matiri West Bank Rd, where they were caught soon after. Nelson Bays area commander Inspector Steve Greally commended his staff on the way they handled both pursuits.

The issue at Sundial Square is a car problem, not a bus problem. The council needs to do much more than just pay lip service to encouraging public transport. The best transport hubs in the country are located in, or close to, retail areas. Examples are New Lynn and Henderson in Auckland, and there are many more elsewhere. Such a location not only encourages use of buses and trains (I wish!) but also encourages patronage of retail areas.

Ideally the whole parking area at Sundial Square needs to be converted into a transport hub, with a regular flow of public transport not only to and from Nelson City but smaller feeder shuttles bringing travellers from outer reaches into the hub. A less attractive proposition would be conversion of some of the extensive car parking areas (which are paid for by ratepayers) around the malls - the advantage of this could be a “park and drive” option. The council needs to look to the future and ensure that it provides for times when cars are no longer a necessity. Helen Campbell, St Arnaud.

Celebrity chef visits primary The Food Truck’s Michael Van de Elzen flew into Richmond on Friday to teach a small group of students some easy meal ideas. Michael highlighted a change in after school snacks, now that parents have become a lot busier in recent years. Children from the Richmond School GATERS program, for gifted and talented students, participated in the cooking class where they were taught how to make healthy home made chips and baked potatoes with beans. Michelle Simpson, the teacher in charge of the GATERS program, says the idea to bring Michael down came when she was watching the television show at home and

saw the healthy potato chips. The group made their own lollies last year but had decided to make chips this year. The students were delighted with the taste of the healthy chips. “Mike also taught about all the additives in food and how bad they are for you, so it was really good that you can make healthy food that’s better than what you’d by in the shops,” says Michelle. A lot of the students had not done much cooking prior to the visit. Michelle has been able to use some of the skills she learnt at home and her own children made some of the healthy chips for the class.

Ben Nistor was a recipient of the 2011 Energie Fruit Environment for Life Scholarship, giving him $2000 towards his study at the University of Otago.

Applications open for scholarship

Applications are open for the Energie Fruit Environment for Life Scholarship, giving students with a horticultural background a helping hand into tertiary study. The application process will close on September 1 and students must be enrolled in studies towards a degree with an environmental, horticultural or agricultural background. The scholarship is to the value of $2000 so it was no surprise that its first year, in 2011, drew a lot of high quality applications. The scholarship was awarded to Ben Nistor, a former Waimea College student. Ben is currently studying a bachelor of applied science majoring in environmental management at the University of Otago. The initiative is run by the Energie Fruit Charitable Trust, supporting secondary school leavers continuing on to tertiary education. Visit to find the application conditions and process.

Mc Intyre is Hair will operate with a team of apprentices working alongside Cherie and under her close supervision. It will be a dynamic and diverse team to complement her own skills. Workshops and classes will be available to all hairdressers, to provide training on up to the minute techniques and processes. Cherie believes passionately in the need for hairdressers to embrace the science as well as the art of their profession to be at the top of their game. She hopes to instill in her staff and those she trains, a mixture of good business sense, and a powerful understanding of the science of hairdressing. She says it is critical to have a full understanding of the chemical processes involved in the craft as well as developing the creative impulse, understanding shape and form to make the most of each individual client’s best attributes. Cherie has spent 20 years as a hairdressing educator at NMIT and has nurtured the development of hundreds of hairdressers over this time. This experience as an educator has been balanced with thirty years as a working hairdresser, never losing the sight and feel of her profession, with a loyal group of clients who are delighted that she has returned to the salon environment. To top it off, for the last 10 years Cherie has made

Appleby School children are in full rehearsal mode for their upcoming production ‘The History of The World in 65 Minutes’. The show is being performed at the Hope Community Church on August 8 and 9 with performances commencing at 7pm. Following a term’s study on the history of the world, teachers and students are using their creativity to write, perform and direct the school production. The story follows one of the school’s pupils, Grace Baralett, and her travels through history with the timelord Dr Who.

Listening to familiar tunes from artists such as Boney M, David Bowie and Michael Jackson, the two trip their way through history, bumping shoulders with dinosaurs, Rasputin, Gutenberg, Alexander Graham Bell, Neil Armstrong and Egyptian Pharaohs. Deputy principal Ian Lambie says the teachers are impressed at the dedication and enthusiasm all the students are displaying in the lead up to the production, especially with school fair preparation also underway. Tickets are $8 each and can be bought from the school office. There will be door sales also.

Another purr-fect cat show A showcase of the country’s top cats clawed its way back into Hope on Sunday. The annual cat show hosted by the Nelson Cat Club returned to the Hope Community Centre following previous stints at the Trafalgar Centre. Around 149 furry felines were entered in the event with contestants bringing their cats from all over the country. The cats were examined by judges from as far away as Finland. Nelson Cat Club treasurer Barbara Beatson was pleased with the turnout, saying the number of contestants was above recent years, although overall the figures had dropped since the event’s early years. “We were rapt with the turnout we’ve got here. It’s on a par or slightly better than what we’ve had in the past two years,” says Barbara, who won the supreme award for best long hair. Competition cats have to comply with a standard before being accepted into events such as the Nelson Cat Show. The amount of care varies from owner to owner. Barbara says judge’s preference has a lot of bearing on which cat wins. “One judge might like Norwegian forest cats while one judge might like Persians. But of course they have to fit the standard.” Cats were judged in a number of different categories. “For a Persian they’re looking for a short body, very rounded skull, heavy legs and long flowing coat.”

The Tasman Tyre Treads team enjoy their role in providing the community with a quality service in a friendly and involved way. If your car has been feeling slightly off-kilter, the Tasman Tyre Treads team can help diagnose and fix the problem. When a car’s wheels aren’t aligned properly, it can feel like your car is pulling to one side or fighting you as you steer. Not only is this disconcerting, it can pose serious safety risks and cause damage to your vehicle. Your tyres may also wear irregularly, it will lower your fuel efficiency, and it can even create driver fatigue or cause you to steer out of your lane. Your wheel alignment can be thrown out by things such as hitting a curb, driving over a pothole, hitting something as you drive, or even having a new set of wheels fitted incorrectly. One or more unbalanced wheels can have a similar effect. Your treads will wear unevenly, even so much as to cause flat spots, and it can be accompanied by a constant vibration through the vehicle. Thankfully, for the experts at Tasman Tyre Treads, it’s easy to recognise and fix. Having properly balanced wheels reduces motion sickness and fatigue, and increases the life of the tyres, steering and suspension systems of your vehicle. Tasman Tyres has the latest technology and the wealth of expertise amongst the professional team to ensure your wheels are properly aligned and bal-

anced. If you feel your vehicle veering to one direction or vibrating, or you notice that your wheels are wearing inconsistently, come see the team at Tasman Tyre Treads to get back in the right direction. Whether you’re after reliable, traditional tyres for everyday conditions, need hard wearing treads for farming or bush bashing, or are looking to stand out from the crowd with alloy and mag wheels and performance tyres, Tasman Tyre Treads can get the right tyre for the job. Come in and celebrate a year at the new location, 20 McGlashen Ave, during August or September and get your entry into the weekly, monthly and major prize draws! AA and CRT cards welcome.

Family van steals the show in mud Phillip Rollo A family van stole the show at Sunday’s Quail Valley Autocross. Street cars were welcome with open arms for the first autocross event of the Nelson Car Club’s rally calendar and the inclement weather played into their hands. Ethan Curtis took a Toyota Estima van around the course to clock a surprisingly fast 44.960 seconds, taking top spot in Class D and overall, ahead of actual rally cars. His time was more than two seconds ahead of his nearest competitor, his father Adrian Curtis. Adrian finished the farm course in 47.100 seconds in his Honda CRX. Both Ethan and Adrian are top drivers, having won multiple national

autocross titles. But the pair shared roles in the Estima because of its ability on the muddy track. Adrian clocked an unofficial time of 41.600 seconds when he took the wheel of the family van. Colin Harvey, also driving a Honda CRX, was second in Class B and third overall. He clocked 47.800 seconds. Morgan Pritchard won Class C in a time of 53.140 seconds while Nick Sands took out Class A in a time of 1 minute 6.620 seconds. Nick was 12th overall. The track had to be shortened because of boggy conditions. The next event is a gravel hill climb on Tunnel Rd in the Spooners Range. It will be held on August 19. For further information visit

Locals ready to back the Phoenix When All White star Jeremy Brockie strides out for his first home game as a Wellington Phoenix player this October 6, the term “home crowd” will be more relevant for him than most. Jeremy’s dad Paul, along with other Nelson supporters of the Phoenix, have put together a package for Nelson fans to travel to the Phoenix’s first home game this season, which will double as Jeremy’s first home game as a Phoenix player. The package will see a mass group of Nelsonians heading to the capital for a Saturday evening game, all sitting in a block and with matching t-shirts. Paul says he hopes to create a real atmosphere and occasion for Nelson fans.

Murchison player Jack Topping runs the ball after a free kick during a match with Wanderers earlier this season. Photo: Phillip Rollo. Huia in the final round was the killer blow, leaving the side languishing in fifth place and just one point shy of a semi-final. Overall it was a strong season for the young side that will only get better in the next few years. The division two side remains on course to meet Murchison but will take on New World Huia at the Brightwater Domain this weekend. The game is scheduled for Saturday at 1:15pm. The division three side went all season without a loss, amassing an impressive 420 points during the season with a mere 69 scored against them. The championship was sealed with a 26-0 win over Wakatu Marist in the final last weekend. The Waimea Old Boys Women’s side won its fourth final in a row and its seventh in eight years to confirm itself as the dominant force in women’s rugby. A 20-15 win over old foe Accessman Stoke in the rain was the highlight in the Waimea calendar. The result also came just months after the side had been likely to pull out of the com-

petition because of low player numbers. The defending division three champions did not enter a team this year but both the division one and two sides fought bravely throughout the year. Led by an impressive forward pack and a young back line, Waimea, like Wanderers, went into the final round of the division one needing a victory to progress into the semi-finals. It wasn’t to be, however, with Marist edging them in Tahunanui. The division two side finished the season with a win over Takaka, but missed out on a playoff spot. Tapawera only contested the division three championship this year and met a fierce Wanderers side in the semi-finals. Despite playing in wet conditions, Wanderers still managed to put the side to the side, crossing for a number of tries in the 32-0 loss. All of the clubs’ JAB section will continue for another month while Golden Oldies has made a welcome return to the rugby calendar.

Local sledders ready to dog it out in Hanmer A small but passionate group of Nelson dog sled racers are heading to Hanmer Springs this weekend to race against the best in the South Island. Every Saturday and Sunday morning during the winter months a group of around a dozen racers head to Rabbit Island to race husky dogs around a 5km track. But instead of the traditional snow sleds, the Nelson racers use modified bicycles to stand on and work their dogs. Racer Andy Cooke says they hope to form an official club

soon and grow the number of people who race, after starting with just a couple of people. “Quite a few of us are doing it now. If we see people with huskies on the side of the road we will jump out of the car and say ‘Fancy doing something different with your dog?’ That’s where a lot of these people come from.” He says being pulled by dogs is an “adrenaline rush” but most of them enjoy it because it’s something they can do with their dogs and it’s plenty of fun. Andy says the dogs get so excited before a race they howl, bark and jump around but not all of the dogs that race are huskies.

“It doesn’t have to be a husky. If your dog likes to run, likes to pull, wants a bit of exercise and you want to do something different, with your dog, then you should give it a go.” Fourteen racers will head south for this weekend’s event and Andy says he would like to see Nelson host one of its own in the future. “We are on the verge of getting a club together, waiting for some stuff to come through now and eventually we’d like to get an event here. There are events throughout the South Island and we’d like to add Nelson to that.” If you are interested in giving dog sled racing a go give Andy a call on 022 0357 628.

Ph 544 4554

64 Oxford Street, opposite Richmond School • Full on-site x-ray services • Parking and easy access • MNZCA • ACC Registered for spine and extremities

After practicing chiropractic on the international scene, working in Sydney for six years and owning her own practice in Hong Kong for 10 years, Christine Ridal has now settled in sunny Nelson and has joined forces with Corrian Poelsma (NZ Chiropractor of the year, 2011) as Tasman Bay Chiropractic Centre’s newest team member. Christine is enjoying the relaxing lifestyle that the Tasman region has to offer, especially after the hustle and bustle of living and working in Hong Kong. After her initial move to New Zealand, Christine and her husband alternated working on their lifestyle block with regular two-week stints when she returned to Hong Kong and continued seeing patients at her busy chiropractic clinic. Before retiring, husband Tim Brown was a pilot with Cathay Pacific, which made the regular trips less expensive. Another benefit of affordable airfares is that Christine has been able to continue her training on an international level, and has just returned from a workshop in Italy and is already booked in to attend another in Melbourne. After selling her Hong Kong practice, Christine was delighted to be offered the opportunity to join the team at Tasman Bay Chiropractic. Christine uses Network Spinal Analysis (NSA), a chiropractic technique using specific low force touches to the spine to help re-organise and align your spine and body. This gentle technique helps dissipate tension from the muscles, spine and nerves, connecting with your body’s

natural rhythms and alignment. Christine has been practicing NSA for the last 12 years after experiencing the benefits of NSA herself and is astounded at the positive results that both she and many of her patients have experienced. ‘NSA looks at the whole body to see where we have stored stress. Stress is stored as tension and this tension in the muscle can pull the spine out of alignment, causing pain,’ says Christine. ‘NSA helps to relieve that pain, and many patients have found that it has other benefits as well. Our bodies have an intuitive or innate ability to heal ourselves and NSA helps draw on that, so effectively you are fixing yourself.’ This healing work can often lead to beneficial changes in patient’s lifestyles and their behaviours and choices alter as well. Not only do they claim to feel great, with reduced tension or pain, but also their focuses, priorities and outlooks have changed. Christine encourages anyone who is struggling with a busy lifestyle to give it a go. ‘We are all rushing around, trying to do everything and often feel overwhelmed and NSA can help with that.’ If you would like to find out more about how Christine can help, she is now offering FREE initial consultations until Thursday 23rd August. Talk to her today to find out just how great things can be when you have your body in balance and your life in balance.

Skipper Luke Thelin ran in three tries as the Super Liquour Waimea Old Boys capped off the season in style with a close fought 40-34 win over Takaka at Jubilee Park on Saturday. Waimea Old Boys had been ruled out of the semi-finals before the game, finishing fifth on the table. But the side was still eager to finish on a high note. In its wake was a Takaka side that had already qualified for the playoffs. Takaka had beaten Waimea Old Boys the only other time they met this season. Dan Smith, Aiden Mcguire and Mitchell Bateman scored Waimea’s tries Player coach Marc Hunter announced his retirement from the game following the match. Marc ends a ten year stint with Waimea Old Boys, where he played for all of the senior teams. He will continue in a Dave Renwick fires a pass out to the back line coaching capacity for the side, after a season during Saturday’s win. as assistant.

Intermediate 2 White show improvement against Murchison The Waimea Old Boys Intermediate 2 White side went down 31-17 to Murchison/ Tapawera at Jubilee Park on Saturday. The last time the two sides played, Waimea failed to put any points on the board, losing 50-0, so the coaches were pleased with



the turnaround in effort from the side. Bodhi Wardle has been a standout in the side and was again on the weekend. He’s had a hand in scoring most of the points. Ben Amberger and Jade Palmer teamed up well on either side of Bodhi to form a very

strong and unpredictable attacking side. The forward pack have continue to gain strength with the big tackling captain of Cameron Rodrique, assisted by Flynn Green and Bryn Stevenson and great hooking effort from Josh Canton. The af-

ter match was a friendly affair with pizza and chips all round just toping a enjoyable afternoon of junior rugby for both sides. There is still a month of JAB rugby to be played as the winter season draws to a close.

Wanderers Sports Club

Wanderers confident ahead of semi Taylor’s Contracting Wanderers secured a confidence boosting 13-12 win down in Murchison on Saturday. Murchison were the only side Wanderers had not managed to defeat heading into the weekend’s division two clash. Murchison has had a perfect run this season, not dropping a single point. Bearing a major upset, both sides look likely to meet again in two week’s time. But Wanderers may now have the upper hand, knowing it can travel down to Murchison and secure victory. Wanderers started Saturday’s encounter the fiercer of the two teams and raced away to a 13-0 lead. Despite the result having no bearing on final placings, there was no holding back for either side. Fullback Dan Cooper moved from his

regular position into first five-eighth and streak alive, but it went wide, giving Wanthe move worked wonders as the former derers some bragging rights as both sides head into the playoffs. Richmond Athletic goal keepWanderers will host New World er played a starring role in the Huia in a bumper weekend of match. His kicking was also on target, converting an early try to sport at the club. The semifinal follows a Tasman Makos blindside flanker Conrad MaliUnder-20 versus Nelson Bays etoa and adding two penalties match and will be played before to stretch the lead even further. the second Town vs Country Callum Rodgers was having a blinder in the loose forwards Tasman Rugby League match. Wanderers team manager Kyle and was the pick of the forward Paki Paki was hopeful the semi pack. But Murchison were not prefinal, which kicks off at 1:30pm, Kyle Paki Paki, pared to lay down and a strong Wanderers div 2 will draw a big crowd for the knock out clash. “Huia are quite second half performance saw manager. an unpredictable team for us the side come within one point of victory. A shot at goal from 30 metres and they can be a bit of a bogey team. They out could have kept the side’s unbeaten just seem to step up when they come up

against us.” Wanderers have beaten Huia on two occasions this season. Top try scorer Stacey Lines was still at least another week away from playing, following an ankle sprain a couple of weeks ago. “Fingers crossed, he’s not looking likely for this week but he could potentially come right for the following week.” Without looking too far past this weekend, Kyle says the season goal was to defend last year’s championship and the side was on track to do so. The squad has a different make up for 2012 with many younger players involved. “Winning the title is one thing but defending it is even harder. Our goal from the start of the season was to make the final and then obviously we wanted to win the final.”

Garin fall just short against Nelson Garin Senior A were pipped at the post by a fast finishing Nelson College for Girls B in the first game of the Championship Round of Grade 3 played at Saxton Stadium. Both teams were under strength and had to call on lower grade teams to fill their roster. Garin made the better start with Abbie Powick donning the unaccustomed centre bib. While tentative to start Abbie rose to the challenge and put in a solid performance, proving to be an excellent pivotal link through court, she was also effective on the transition play. Garin had a 8-4 lead at the first break with goal attack, Sjaan Hungerford

playing a large part in the proceedings. Nelson lifted in the second quarter when goal attack, Julia Thompsett received an abundance of ball and had her radar well and truly tuned in as she found the net to share the period 9 all. Promoted 10A player, Merekara McGuinnietty made an impact off the bench at goal defence as she toiled to contain Sjaan. Merekara rebounded well to deny the second shot and was a competent ball carrier. Goal keep, Veronika Paulten came back stronger when she sat out the second quarter, she pulled in two well timed intercepts. Alice Hazlett and Tyla Rangi were a nice

mid court pairing for Nelson – they were steady through court and they worked hard to reach the circle edge. Garin’s Phoebe Harris contributed well at wing attack in her minutes on the court, she worked particularly well off the line and put in a number of nice feeds. Although carrying an injury, Makaila Powick entered the game at half time to add punch to the offensive end, while Olivia Nott had an impressive game at goal shoot. Garin’s defensive pairing of Annelise van Zoelan and Emma Greep worked hard as a unit and backed up one another to convert the deflection into possession. Nelson finished strongly to outscore Garin 13-7 to take the game 33-30.

Final Proposal for Representation Arrangements for the 2013 Local Elections

Proposal for a Rates Remission Policy for Land Affected by Natural Disaster

On 19 July 2012 the Tasman District Council considered the submissions received on its initial proposal regarding the representation arrangements for the Council and its constituent community boards to apply for the local elections to be held on 12 October 2013, and in October 2016. The Council received eight submissions on its proposal. Some of these submissions raised matters that Council could not consider under the law. Having considered all of the submissions, Council resolved to adopt its initial proposal as the Council’s final proposal, viz: • Retain the current five wards, their names and boundaries. • Retain the Mayor who will be elected at large, and 13 Councillors to be elected from wards as follows: two councillors for Golden Bay Ward, one for Lakes-Murchison Ward, three councillors for Motueka Ward, three councillors for Moutere-Waimea Ward and four councillors for Richmond Ward. • Retain the current Motueka and Golden Bay Community Boards, their current boundaries, names and membership; The Council rejected the matters raised in the submissions for the following reasons: – Golden Bay and Motueka Community Boards appear to be supported by their communities, as is evidenced by Council only receiving two requests to remove these Boards. – A request to change a ward boundary to move a property into a different ward was rejected as changes to meshblock boundaries would require Statistics NZ approval, redrawing of the plans and certification by the Surveyor-General at Land Information New Zealand, which could have significant financial costs. – Two ward councillors for Lakes-Murchison Ward on the basis of an isolated community was rejected by the Local Government Commission in 2006, who subsequently enlarged the ward area and reduced the representation to one councillor to comply with Section 19V(2) of the Local Electoral Act 2001. Council is therefore reluctant to revisit this. – The two submissions proposing a new Ruby Coast Moutere Hills Ward, along with its own councillors and community board failed to show Council any evidence that the Ward comprised a separate community of interest requiring separate representation from the current Moutere-Waimea Ward. Also this proposal would not have met the councillor/ population ratio under Section 19V(2) of the Local Electoral Act, which would have shown the new ward over-represented and the residual Moutere/Waimea Ward well under represented. Any person who made a submission on the Council’s initial proposal may lodge an appeal against the Council’s decision. An appeal must relate to the matters raised in that person’s submission. Appeals must be made in writing, and received no later than 4.30 pm on Friday 7 September 2012. Appeals are to be forwarded to: Executive Officer – Strategic Development Tasman District Council Private Bag 4 Richmond 7050; Or delivered to: Tasman District Council, 189 Queen Street, Richmond; Or emailed to: Or faxed to: 03 543 8560 Any queries regarding the Council’s decision should be directed to: Sandra Hartley – Executive Officer – Strategic Development Phone 03 543 8554.

Tasman District Council’s Proposal for a Rates Remission Policy for Land Affected by Natural Disaster is now available for public consultation. The proposed Policy is for residential land affected by natural disaster, in order to provide rating relief for ratepayers unable to inhabit their dwellings or buildings as a result of natural disaster. The Council has approved a Summary of Information and a Statement of Proposal for public consultation under section 83 of the Local Government Act 2002. Your views will help guide Council’s decision-making on whether to proceed with developing and adopting a policy. The proposal is contained in two documents: • A Summary of Information, which outlines the detail of the proposal, the reason for a proposal and the period for submissions. • A Statement of Proposal which provides detail on the proposal, options, financial and other considerations. The above documents are available for viewing on Council’s website at and during normal office hours at the following Tasman District Council Service Centres: • Richmond, 189 Queen Street, Richmond • Motueka, 7 Hickmott Place, Motueka • Takaka, 78 Commercial Street, Takaka • Murchison, 92 Fairfax Street, Murchison Libraries: • District Library, Queen Street, Richmond • Motueka Library, Pah Street, Motueka • Takaka Memorial Library, Junction Street, Takaka. The Summary of Information will be printed in the Tasman District Council’s Newsline circular, cover date 27 July 2012. Submissions are invited on the proposal for a Rates Remission Policy for Land Affected by Natural Disaster and must be received by 4.30 pm on 24 August 2012.

Tasman District Council’s roading maintenance contractor is responsible for vegetation control within the road reserve. This includes the use of knock-down, residual and brushweed herbicides to remove vegetation growing in the roadway and around street furniture. The contractor is also responsible for control of pest plants and other noxious weeds such as gorse, fennel, hemlock, blackberry, broom, bracken, purple pampas grass and box thorn. Residents can request that their rural property frontage not be chemically sprayed and instead undertake the vegetation control themselves. On approval Council will mark the no spray area with red marker pegs. Rural residents who choose the “no spray” option must control the vegetation growth along their property frontage to ensure road users are not impeded and all roadside signs and markers are clearly visible. Vegetation height should not exceed 300mm. Any stormwater drainage ditches need to be kept clear of excess vegetation. At intersections vegetation must be kept well clear to ensure good sight lines for traffic using the intersection. If you wish to apply for your property to be added to the “No Spray” list, please contact Robyn Scherer, Engineering Secretary, Tasman District Council, Phone 03 543 8524 or email –
