Police left to babysit drunks

Police say they were left to babysit drunk teenagers who use community events as an excuse to “preload on alcohol” and start fights. Following last month’s Sprig & Fern Summer Fare and the council-run Sundial Jam,

Phillip Rollo Reporter police made at least seven juvenile arrests

due to levels of intoxication and increased disorder while there were also some injuries reported as a result of assault. Sergeant Mal Drummond, who is in charge of community policing in Richmond, says it is a real concern and that parents should

have full responsibility, not the eventorganisers who had “attempted to do the right thing and worked alongside police”. “We’d be naïve to think children don’t go SEE PAGE 2

Redbacks found at port

Three venomous redback spiders have been discovered under a shipping container at Port Nelson after its contents had been emptied at Viridian Glass, in the Wakatu Estate. Redback spiders, commonly referred to as black widow spiders, are listed by the Ministry of Health as one of just three living in New

Zealand that are capable of biting humans and therefore should be avoided. But those fearing a citing of the dangerous eight legged arachnids do not have to worry as all of the redback spiders and a handful of egg sacs were destroyed shortly after the discovery by a quarantine inspector. A spokesperson from the Ministry of Primary Industries says the contents of the River Cruising in Europe Australian imported are extremely popular and container were unbook out exceptionally fast. loaded inside the Call me now to avoid disappointment. glass company’s premises before it Contact Kelly Ogilvie was returned to the Ph: 03 5444 622 E: port.

checked the container and found the spiders, sparking an urgent call to the MPI. Because Viridian Glass is accredited as a transitional facility, it means company staff are trained to be part of the biosecurity system and are authorised to check containers for any biosecurity risks and contact MPI with any concerns. MPI say the inspector took the specimens and egg sacs out to Viridian Glass as an educational exercise to provide staff there with a visual reference for possible future arrivals of this nature, before destroying them. Redback spiders are already established in parts of New Zealand. However, MPI says it has an interest in intercepting and destroying them to prevent further introductions.

Police left to babysit drunk teenagers FROM PAGE 1 away and do things you don’t know about, but if your children have access to alcohol then it’s a problem you should be facing up to,” he says. “We have limited resources and these events do stretch our capabilities to attend other events because we have to babysit kids that should be looked after by their parents.” Mal thanked the parents that arrived at 10pm to pick up their children, but says some young people stayed on until after midnight, well after the event concluded,

giving them no alternative way home other than the late bus or to walk. While the Masked Parade held in Nelson had experienced similar incidents in the past, the problem with drunk youths loitering on the street was really only occurring in Richmond twice a year, coinciding with the two events in Sundial Square and Mal was unsure of the way forward. “We need to work on why they are coming to Richmond, what is their motive and if it’s just to get drunk and fight then we have to do something to limit that attitude.”

Wakefield welcomes new principal Departing Wakefield School principal Peter Ross says a disagreement with upcoming changes to the education system is one of the reasons for stepping down, putting an end to 21 years as head of the school. Although he “is getting older”, Peter says he did not agree with some issues regarding national standards, but would not go into more depth. “The Government just seems to be anti-teacher at the moment. I’m disappointed in that,” he says. “But I’ve been here 21 years, I’m 62, I know the things we need to do and I’ve done those before so it’s time for someone else.” The man given the task of replacing him is Southbridge principal Peter Verstappen. Peter has spent six years at the school in “Daniel Carter’s hometown”, 45km south of Christchurch and will move to Wakefield with his wife Sylvia, before officially starting on May 6. Speaking on the phone just days after attending an official powhiri at Wakefield School, Peter says he saw the move as a step forward in his career. “I think the school suits me, I’ve always liked working in village schools and it’s got a style about it that I think I will work well with,” he says. While he admits that it is “a bit nerve wracking” coming into a new job, Peter says the

Phillip Rollo Reporter welcoming has given him a lot of confidence and excitement. “What I was really impressed by was the tone of the school, the friendliness of the children and the relaxed nature of the school.” When questioned about the mounting pressures on schools in relation to national standards and talk of performance-based pay, Peter agreed that it was a tough time to be a principal, and highlighted Wakefield as a perfect example of everything that is right about a school. “It’s not just national standards, there’s a whole policy environment around education at the moment that a lot of us in the industry feel uncomfortable with. We are really concerned about losing the unique strengths of the New Zealand curriculum which are really evident in schools like Wakefield.” Peter believed tying national standard results to children and teachers was a “very simplistic way of trying to measure a valuable education” because it focussed too much on literacy and numeracy and said it didn’t work overseas. “It’s taking a business model and trying to apply that in an education model. I’ve worked in England and I’ve seen how this leads to a narrowing of the curriculum”.

Wet morning doesn’t dampen popular fair Phillip Rollo The popular Mapua Easter Fair has raised more than $30,000 yet again for the town’s school and playcentre, despite morning rain raising questions whether it would even go ahead. According to the event’s website, organisers said the event would go ahead either way, and the rain stopped shortly after the earlier start of 9am pleasing stall holders and those that had turned up armed with raincoats and umbrellas. Jane Smith, who is one of the organisers and had a stall at the event, says the Mapua Easter Fair is the biggest of its kind in the South Island. She was

pleased with another fantastic effort from the community, acknowledging some people braved the morning rain. “We knew it was going to be wet and clear up so we wanted go ahead regardless. It’s a fantastic fundraiser for the school and the playcentre, they really depend on that money so to have a sunny day in the end was so good.” Jane believed the traffic problems experienced last year had reduced considerably with more people utilising the Great Taste Cycle Trail and cycling from Rabbit Island. “I don’t believe it was as bad and we encouraged people to use that ferry and there is bike hire in the village, so there are plenty of other ways to get here now.”

Editorial: The wrongs and Wrights of the village into a repairs and maintenance fund for the upkeep of the village. Now it’s important to know that one of the real estate reps at the time was in fact John Davies, Michael Wright’s father in-law. This arrangement, although on the outside was workable, was never a huge money maker. The only folk really who made any money were the original owners who leased the sections. Roll on the years and the Steve Page. village kind of just kept going under the management of a likeable character called Rocky. At this stage the “business” of Waimea Village was a bit of a dead duck. What I mean is that you would not buy it as a going concern. That’s why when the Wrights bought it for approximately $400,000, which included the large house and land to the right as you drive in, they got a quite nice wee business and family home capable of pulling them $85,000 a year for basically doing some lawn mowing and changing a few smoke detectors. No one can really argue that a price increase was on the way but also just prior the council had taken over the responsibility for the water mains in the village, a huge potential cost gone, and the electrical responsibility was taken over by Network Tasman. For those two parties it was the most cost effective way to build up the estate being built behind the village. Now all they were responsible for as village owners was a few feet of pipe to each house and some minor roading and fencing. There should be today over $250,000 sitting in the repair and replacement fund, as ordered by an arbitrator last year. The Wrights maintain the money is there but when asked to prove it with even just a complete bank statement, they refuse. Would you not think that to stop all of this grief Wright would comply with that simple request? The

It was three and a half years ago that I sat outside the little office that Michael Wright uses on the village site with Michael and his father in-law John Davies. I was acting on behalf of both of my Christchurch-based parents and I was close to buying one of the charming little homes in the village. In the back of my mind only one thing was worrying me, this “fee” everyone was paying. Both of these men assured me it was really no worry. Davies said it would go up for sure but “only 5 bucks every one or two years and even then only with the approval of the committee”. Wright and Davies continued to use this untruth with future perspective residents over the next two years. So what is the real story here? In a nutshell Waimea Village was a caravan park and it afforded reasonably priced accommodation for folk to live in a high priced town. It was discovered due to bit of a loophole at the council that by leasing the land out, folk could in fact live there on a permanent basis. So the lease was for 999 years which as we speak today, has around 950 years to go. When a new house was built on the site, a deal was struck where the original new house owner paid the village owners at the time a sum of money, a one off payment for the right to be there. In some instances it was around $30,000. Then on an on-going basis a small sum of $50 was agreed on by each homeowner to be paid

Scan here for Nelson open homes

residents are now saying they don’t trust the Wrights or the Davies based on their past dealings. The Wrights have now started legal proceedings to evict those residents refusing to pay the extra charges. Let’s make this very clear, all residents own their own homes here. All houses have paid the lease as a one off payment many years ago so no more is owed. All residents pay rates on an on-going basis to the council even though most of the houses are half the size of a normal home in Richmond. The major expense the Wrights and the Davies are exposed to is the roading and that has been determined by roading experts to have at least another 25 years before any significant repair is due. Most other services have actually been decreased, and there has been no significant maintenance undertaken since the Wrights took over, so what apart from greed is the huge price increase for? So where to from here? Plain and simple residents do not expect an “aha” moment from Wrights. It’s not going to happen. Even if the upcoming court case is won, Wright will come back next year for yet another price increase. The recent offer of approximately $700,000 to the Wrights excluding that valuable house, by the residents for the village was a very generous one that shows the determination of the residents to get rid of these two owners, yet Michael and wife Caroline came back with another million on top required! So that’s $1.7 million (excluding the house) for a business they paid almost nothing for. The solution, if the court case isn’t effective? What would happen if the residents stopped all monies getting paid to the Wrights? Illegal sure, but that would bring things to a head finally. And a message to Caroline and Michael Wright, most folk would have worked something out by now and be back to enjoying our wonderful area. You knew exactly what you were buying; you knew exactly what you were getting into. You made a bad decision, now make it better. And congrats to councillors Kit Maling, Judene Edgar and their team for at least trying. It makes Age Concern, National MP Nick Smith, Labour MP Maryann Street, Mayor Richard Kempthorne, Greypower and other community leaders who had put this in the too hard basket, seem a little insipid. Time to stand up guys, with the rest of us and help ease the anguish of some of our community’s more vulnerable folk.

Wednesday March 13 After 53 years of fixing shoes for local families, Richmond shoe repairer Keith Sanders retired last Wednesday. After an article in the Waimea Weekly broke news of his retirement, he says he was flooded with last minute customers who were rushing to search their homes for faulty shoes and bringing in more than one pair for Keith to fix before his last day. Keith says the many years of helping people has been extremely satisfying but he’s looking forward to getting back to growing succulents, dancing, going to the gym and spending time with his family. Wednesday February 27 A working bee held at the start of March has seen a group of people come forward to indicate their interest as work begins on Richmond’s community garden. The garden is already taking shape at its site behind the Richmond campus of the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology and is ready to move forward with vegetable beds dug out, weeding completed and a garden shed acquired. The Richmond community garden steering group will send out a newsletter soon with a timetable to all those who have said they wish to be involved.

Custom made bike club A new motorbike club has established itself in Nelson, with its focus on custom bikes. The Nelson Custom Motorcycle Club was founded at the start of this year and already has close to 20 members. Founder Miki Djukanovic says custom bikes are growing in popularity and the club was proof of that. A custom motorbike is the twowheeled version of a hot rod, anything that isn’t stock standard. Miki says the club is hoping to do a bit of everything, from hosting workshop

nights, events, riding and just hanging out. “We want to create a social custom scene for girls and guys who want a good time, it’s a hobby and for people who want to enjoy themselves, flash their bikes, share ideas and just have a good time with other like-minded people.” Everyone is welcome says Miki, all makes and models and you don’t even need to own a custom bike, just if you’ve got an interest in it. Anyone keen to find out more about the club can call Miki on 022 046 4549.

A Russian tank made completely out of carved wood will soon be turning heads as it rolls into the Suter Art gallery to be part of its Kaihono Ahua exhibition. The four by two metre almost to scale BDRM-2 Scout Car is part of a series of carved weapons by Auckland artist Brett Graham. He says it took more than six weeks to complete and is made out of MDF, carved with traditional Maori designs. Brett says he is inspired by “transforming the mundane and ordinary into something special” and hopes the public will see that when they visit the piece at the gallery. He says the work is similar to that of Maori who would carve designs into European weapons such as carvings on the butt of a gun. Anna-Marie White, curator

for the Suter Art Gallery says the piece will be a welcome addition to the ambitious exhibition which aspires to be the very best. “Brett is one of the most famous and important sculptors in New Zealand and this will be his first time showing in the South Island.” The tank is living behind one of the many locked doors at local business Storage World until the exhibition begins in April, something that Anna-Marie finds exciting in its self. “You look around at the closed doors and think that if something like this tank is behind this door, then what could be behind all of the rest?” Kaihono Ahua, part of the Suter’s seventh biennale exhibition will run from April 20 through to June 30 with entry free to the public every Saturday.

Thai restaurant expands Round two for Ranzau ride Richmond’s favourite Thai restaurant is expanding, taking its authentic cuisine to a whole new level, along with a new town. Soon even more people will get a taste of local businesswoman Bunga Krataitong’s success when she takes her unique expertise to the Bamboo Garden Restaurant in downtown Blenheim. Bunga, owner of Chai-Yo Richmond and Nelson has bought the popular restaurant and can’t wait to bring to it her flair for all things food. “I am very excited to expand into Blenheim, I’m happy to be taking over from the previous owners who are now retiring.” The restaurant comes with its own history in Bunga’s past, with her

husband being the head chef there a few years ago, the couple kept up their friendship with the owners and Bunga says she was thrilled to be offered the opportunity to buy it when they retired. While Bunga will be out of town setting up her new business, she wants her customers to know Chai-Yo will still remain under her ownership and she will be keeping an eye on things in both the Richmond and Nelson stores where the chefs and staff will remain the same. “After it is up and running I will split my time between all three restaurants. The great menu and staff will remain the same and I look forward to seeing all of my existing customers at Chai Yo when I return.”

Families are being encouraged to get on their bikes and ride from Richmond to Hope this Saturday for a school fundraiser. Ranzau School principal Dave Sampson says the event, which was first held last year, was created to build spirit within the Hope community and to obviously utilise the Great Taste Cycle Trail, which runs past the school grounds. “We want to utilise the community resources and it leads right past the school so we’d be silly not to use it,” he says. Riders will leave the starting point, which is behind the skate park at Jubilee Park, from 4pm to 5pm, with a scavenger hunt along the way to Hope. Ranzau School is hosting its second annual Ride to Entry is by gold coin donation and there will be a barbeque and entertainment at the end. Ranzau cycle event this Saturday.

Railway tunnel unlocked for walk Phillip Rollo

The longest disused railway tunnel in New Zealand was opened up again for walkers on the weekend. Located near the top of the Spooner’s Range, the Spooner’s Railway Tunnel runs in a straight line for 1352m. It has only been used for guided tours and monthly walks over the summer since it closed in 1955 when the entire railway network shutdown in Nelson. Bob Stewart, the man who was in charge of opening the steel door at the beginning of the tunnel on Sunday, says the tunnel is a remarkable structure. “You got to remember this

was built 50 years after the first settlers arrived in Nelson so it’s quite historical and has a lot of significance.” Although it does have a lot of historical significance to some people, Bob admits there will be a lot of Nelson residents that don’t even know it exists. “I remember as a kid coming through on the train, which is an important part Nelson’s history. But people do forget about it. Once this goes you’ll never ever replace it.” The tunnel remains locked as an agreement between the Tapawera Historical Society and Land Information New Zealand. Around 25 people walked through on Sunday.

Neil Simpson of the Nelson Waimea Gun Club will prepare for the duck hunting season by attending an “eye in” hosted by the club this weekend. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

Duck hunters to get their eye in Duck hunters wanting to get their eye in before the season begins are invited to an open day hosted by the Nelson Waimea Gun Club this weekend. The event, sponsored by Stirling Sports, will be held at the club’s facility on Valley Rd in Golden Downs, which is just past Belgrove on the way to St Arnaud, on April 7. Spokesperson Neil Simpson says the day is open to all duck shooters and that there will be more than $3000 worth of prizes to be won, including a used shotgun. “This day is for duck shooters wanting to get their eye in before the season. These are held all over the country, heaps of clubs have them,” he says. “They’re generally run from this month right through to when the season starts. There are always prizes so

people can win decoys, callers and anything related to duck shooting.” Neil believed duck hunting was as popular as ever before acknowledging that the number of ducks had decreased. “There’s not so many in this area, well not as many as we’d like. Possibly it’s because of changing agriculture but there’s still good duck shooting out and about.” Neil says anyone interested should just “turn up at the ground” from 8:30am onwards. “This is good for new and old duck shooters and anyone that is just keen to come out and have a play.”

Gr wing Things

With Robyn Hollis

What a great week we had – just pleasing ourselves and stopping when we liked and where we liked was a real change of pace. It is really good for the soul to be able to get out and explore this wonderful place we are lucky enough to call home. People on the Coast are a rare breed…friendly and great hosts and very proud of their place in the world. The weather was amazing, warm and sunny with not a cloud in the sky and not much wind at all. The break was really good for us both. I did feel for the farmers and was so glad to come back to a couple of days of much needed rain – do hope they got some of that. Cruze and I certainly did not mind getting soaked to the skin on one of our first walks on our return to Nelson!! I wonder why it is that when you are home and waiting for veges to produce you can be looking daily for some fruit, beans or a stray courgette to pop in the pot, and then the week you go away everything (including the weeds) decides to grow at an amazing rate. Thank goodness our lovely neighbours took care of the

extra veges and also picked the blackboy peaches so they did not drop. They are now all bottled and the quince tree is stripped. Easter weekend is usually interrupted with jelly making and this year is no ex- A pale pink Japanese ception. I have been asked anemones - sometimes to give out my recipe for called windflowers. Quince, Apple and Garlic Sauce which has become a bit of a favourite. Here it is: 3 kgs quinces 1 kg apples (granny smith are best) 500 grams brown onions 3-4 whole heads of garlic 1 heaped tsp cayenne pepper 3 Tablespoons salt (common is best) 1 & 1/2 Tablespoons ground cloves 1 Tablespoon ground allspice 2 kgs sugar (1 kg white and 1kg brown) 3 litres malt vinegar Chop the quinces and apples, discarding the cores. You don’t need to peel them. Finely chop onions. Skin all garlic cloves and pop in whole. Combine all ingredients in a large heavy based pan. Bring to the boil slowly, stirring until the sugar is dis-

solved. Simmer approx 3 hours stirring from time to time so as the mixture does not stick to the pan as it thickens. When all is boiled to a pulpy consistency remove from the heat and cool a little – blend with a barmix or transfer to a blender, or sieve, to create a flowing sauce. (I find the barmix or stick blender the easiest way to do this for most sauces – easiest is always best!) Bottle, and seal when cold. Enjoy.

• By now you should be well worn out, as the Easter break is a big weekend in a gardener’s life. Autumn is a great time to plant all manner of things both in the flower and the vege garden. • There is still time to plant broad beans, carrots, cauli, brussel sprouts, winter lettuce (mizuna and mesclun mix should do better in autumn) cabbage and silverbeet. • Plant leeks, and in this weather you should still be able to get in a crop of sugar snap peas. • In areas of the garden that are not in use, plant a cover crop like lupins, mustard or barley. They can be dug in and composted in early spring and provide valuable organic material to the soil as well as protecting the surface from heavy rain damage over the winter – (we live in hope!!) • Autumn is the best season to grow herbs like rocket, coriander and in a sunny spot you should still be able to grow basil (especially if this weather keeps up!). • In the flower garden you can sow alyssum, calendulas (winter marigolds), delphiniums, foxgloves, hollyhocks, lupins, pansies, poppies and viola to name a few. • It is also time to plant strawberries.

None truer than Barry Andrews and his team from Richmond Brake and Clutch. Locally born and raised and the same for his staff, Barry knows and understands how to work well in a small town. “Long ago I figured out the best way was honesty straight up” he says. “From the diagnosis to what it cost to repair. And I stand absolutely on what we advise our customers to do”. Barry and his team only source spare parts that best suit the customer and the

value not the profit margin. And when it comes to all the bits and pieces that get fitted to customers cars and 4WD’s “they are all of a quality that I would use, good value and quality” said Barry Apart from offering full service and repairs to all makes and models, petrol and diesels, he also has the WOF shop right next door so can fix straight away anything that may cause a vehicle to be declined for a warrant. “And with the same honesty” he says.

Fresh water and peace of mind Praise for For more than 10 years the friendly team at Edward Gibbon have been industry leaders here in Nelson. Backed up by the well-known and respected Plumbing Plus reputation, Edward Gibbon is the name you can trust for all of your plumbing needs. Edward Gibbon prides itself on its range of bathroom fittings and plumbing supplies, including New Zealand made and imported product, from sleek and simple to ornate, designer pieces. For domestic or commercial projects, you’ll find what you need here. With a proven history of excellence, the team at Edward Gibbon is able to provide a personalised service to aid with product selection, ensuring both your design requirements and budget are met. Edward Gibbon now supplies Tank Vac, an overflow system suitable for anyone who uses a tank for water supply. Clayton and the team are excit-

ed to be the South Island’s exclusive distributor of this advanced system which prevents water contamination from plant materials, bird droppings and stagnation. When tanks overflow after rainfall, you want to dispose of old water, not the precious fresh water off the top. The Tank Vac vacuums the entire base of your tank using an unrivalled, powerful siphon. This picks up material lying on the tank floor and draws out poor water quality from the bottom of the tank, leaving you with water that is as fresh as possible – and peace of mind. Talk to the plumbing experts at Edward Gibbon Plumbing Plus about looking after your family’s health with a Tank Vac system. Pop into the showroom, talk to Clayton and the team about your requirements and ask about a free, no obligation quote. Find them at 23 McGlashen Ave, Richmond.

Curtain closes on drag racing season Phillip Rollo The Keith Whiting Memorial Trophy is heading back across the Cook Straight after the North Island stunned its southern counterparts 12-3 in the final meet of the Nelson drag racing season. Six drivers from each island entered in the North versus South class with Aidan Crook and Adrian Rivers – both of the North Island – claiming three race victories to win back the trophy previously held by the South Island drivers. Nelson Drag Racing Association president John Gourdie, who was also entered in the North versus South event, did not seem too disappointed in the loss and focused on how strong the season has been locally, saying it has gone from strength to strength. “When we sit back and reflect it’s been a good season that started off with two local events and then finished with two national events. The season has gone extremely well,” he says. While the competition class, which John races in, remains “light” on num-

bers, all of the others have seen substantial increases. “This year we’ve seen competitor numbers growing and there are a lot of new entrants. It’s fantastic. Starting off with the mod-bike and good growth in super street, which is street-car based.” With many meetings across the country affected by weather over the years, John was also pleased that all four local ones went ahead. “Various meetings get affected by weather and it’s hard when you’ve got numerous guys attending from out of town. Obviously the guys from out of town are appreciative of the fact they can come in and the day will definitely be on because we’ve consistently been able to turn on the good weather.” He credits successful events as the reason why more and more people are participating. “It’s well run, well organised and everyone enjoys a great day.” The final race of the season will be the NZDRA New Zealand Nationals which is being held in Taupo at the end of April.

The Waimea College sailing team is from left; Harry Just, Gemma MacIntyre, Harrison Carver, Monique Claus, Adele Walker, Ben Murton, Phoebe King and Josh Edmonds (coach).

College team sail off to NZ regatta The Waimea College sailing team will take plenty of confidence into the New Zealand Secondary School Sailing Regatta later this month after finishing third at the regional competition. A podium spot behind Marlborough Boys’ College and Marlborough Girls’ College in the gold fleet was a creditable performance according to coach Josh Edmonds who says the team was pushing for a top four finish. “The competition at regionals was pretty good. Waimea

were one race from getting second overall but they lost it, which was agonising for me as a coach.” Josh says the team, which will be seeded into the silver fleet in Taupo, has a realistic chance to do well. “A lot of them are Year 13 students and this will be there their last year doing it. It’s the greatest time though, going to team’s sailing nationals was one of my highlights for the year when I was at school.” The national competition will be held on April 28.
