HAVING A BALL: Sean Powick makes a catch during Friday’s first ever G-Ball final at Garin College, which was won by Aubert 4. Throughout the term each whanau class has been competing weekly in the inter house competition, trying to earn their place in the top eight which competed off in the finals day on Thursday. G-Ball is a mix between rounders and tee ball and has become the unofficial house sports day at Garin College. Captains of sport, Paul O’Regan and Sjaan Hungerford, say the day was a huge success and the house and school spirit shown by the students was a huge reward to see. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

It’s nice to experience one side of the spectrum and then another. A lot of those people are really, really poor but they’re the happiest people you’ll meet so it’s quite a humbling experience.

Schools support strict dress codes

Phillip Rollo Reporter

editorial@waimeaweekly.co.nz

Principals from Garin and Waimea College have thrown their support behind strict dress codes after the parent of a Nayland College student questioned the policing of unnatural hair colours. Maxine Hornell says there is double standards at Nayland College because junior students have to abide by a dress code while senior students are allowed to wear mufti and are encouraged to express themselves. Her comments came after her daughter Dayna McElhinney had dyed her hair with “blue tips” and was refusing to revert back despite phone calls from the school. Maxine says she did not think blue tips would be an issue because some senior students had bright pink hair. “There are other students with more hair colour than what is on the end of hers. It’s not that she’s done it to be rebellious, it’s a fashion statement,” she says. Maxine believed there would be more leeway if Dayna was

Plant box thief will return, says manager The person who bizarrely stole a 300kg planter box from the Revive Reuse Shop is yet to be caught, although the manager of the shop says it’s just a matter of time before the offender attempts to steal again. “They will come back, they just can’t help themselves,” says Saul U-ren, who claims the store has been hit by theft every day for the past 15 years. “We know who they are but we don’t know their names or where they live and they haven’t been back.” The Revive Reuse Shop, which is operated by the Kahurangi Trust, sells second hand items which have been dropped off on site. Last month Saul told the Waimea Weekly that

regular customers were getting away with theft because the amount of money they spent outweighed the cost of the items that were stolen. He says he has not reported the thefts to police because without a lead, “it’s just pie in the sky to them”. “It’s a hard thing to follow up and I know their resources and time are both very limited.” His comments came after someone was spotted on a surveillance camera emptying dirt from the planter box outside the shop and then driving off with it, after hours. Saul says talks were still ongoing with the Tasman District Council in relation to getting street lights installed, which he says will make a “huge difference”.

If you vote to change ‘marriage’ we will vote to change you

AN ENFORCED CULTURAL CHANGE

In response, we are inviting you and your family to make an important pledge to yourself – to withdraw your vote from any politician and party who is willing to be part of this enforced cultural change.

Marriage, in the process, will become meaningless. We will be using the word to describe something else – not naturally or traditionally created, but conceived by politics and political correctness.

If you want politicians to get the message, go online and sign the Marriage Pledge:

THE PROCESS HAS BEEN SHAMEFUL

2 3

HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO

In less than a month, it’s highly likely that a majority of politicians will commit one of the worst acts of cultural vandalism by redefining one of our oldest and most fundamental institutions - marriage.

• The politicians have ignored thousands of your submissions. • They have ignored calls for a referendum on this massive cultural change - at the same time as demanding a referendum on state asset sales. • They have demanded their right for a conscience vote, yet have voted to ignore the consciences of celebrants, registrars, churches hosting weddings, and others in the wedding industry. • They are ramming this bill through without giving it the due consideration and debate it deserves.

R “I will not use my electorate vote to vote for an electorate MP who supports changing the definition of marriage” R “I will not use my party vote to vote for a political party whose leader supports changing the definition of marriage”

IT TAKES LESS THAN 2 MINUTES Just tick the boxes and fill in your details. We’ll send each electorate MP a list of voters in their electorate who have committed to holding them to account. To make your pledge, go to the website address below. It’s a tangible way to make politicians listen to you.

Hundreds ride to Ranzau Ranzau School principal Dave Sampson says Saturday’s Ride to Ranzau was an “awesome” community event, participated by hundreds of people. Event-participants cycled from Jubilee Park through to Ranzau School before enjoying food and entertainment at the end. Dave says the event grew considerably

since its inception last year and that the atmosphere was awesome. “It was really well supported and the kids put in a lot of effort to decorate themselves and their bikes,” he says. “There was a lot of creativity and it was definitely bigger than last year.” The event was created because the school wanted to utilise the Great Taste Cycle Trail which ran right past its premises. “The opportunity for family and friends to do an activity and get them to spend time together was really cool.” The money raised from the event will go towards completing the fitness track and the developmental area.

Local man wins Aussie mural competition A Tapawera artist now living in Melbourne has scooped an international mural painting competition earning himself a prize of $12,500 cash. Kristopher Thomas, who moved to Melbourne three months ago, hoping to cash in on its arts culture, took out

the Tasmania-based International Mural Fest for his mural titled “The Other Side”. He says the aim of the mural is to give viewers the opportunity to step through a demolished urban wall and discover natures wide open spaces on the other side. “Thirty people entered internationally and I was lucky enough to make the top nine. I never expected a win, but was of course hopeful,” he says. It was inspired by artist Chris Finlayson of Takaka, who is the designer and We should get out more. producer of the Rocks Rd mural titled Aotearoa. What’s on at Club Waimea?

The International Mural Fest is held annually in the township of Sheffield during the Easter weekend. Each artist must complete a 2100mm x 4800mm mural using the same poem as their mural’s central theme and inspiration. Each year a new poem is selected. Kristopher says he has only ever painted three murals in his six year career, one of which is currently on the public toilets in Tapawera. Putting the paint brushes down and standing back to view the masterpiece is key during the long process, he says. “But once the initial sketch is complete it’s just bigger brushes and strokes.” Kristopher, says he will use the money to travel and to put into future business plans.

Calling all Bedfords

The Bedford Bar is hosting an “everything Bedford” swap meet on April 13 and 14 at the Hope Domain after a growing number of enquiries. Maureen Steffert, who has been the owner of the Bedford Bar for the past three years, says customers are always coming in and asking for help on where to source parts. “So that’s why I thought everyone can just come to the domain, bring their Bedford on a trailer if they need to, bring their parts,” she says. Maureen says there are a lot of Bedfords around the region, although the majority are just laying around on back yards. “Hopefully we get a few buses but it’ll mainly be trucks,” she says. “But the people we want are the people with the knowledge who can help.” Bill Hohepa of television show Talking Trucks will attend the event, which Maureen says is a huge coup. The swap meet will run from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Volunteers sought for Vietnam build

Paul Shutte and Andy Farmer are on the search for people to join a Habitat for Humanity trip.

Habitat for Humanity is like a bug and once you’ve got it, you can’t stop. That’s the words coming from Andy Farmer and Paul Shutte, who are preparing for another overseas journey to help build homes for those in need. Andy and Paul are searching for 15 open-minded, willing Nelson volunteers

to join them and 150 Kiwis in Vietnam in August. The location for the build will be in Tien Giang, an area prone to flooding. Residents in the area cannot afford to constantly repair their homes and it is hoped the 25 new homes will transform the community. The pair first got involved in Habitat for Humanity during

a trip to Nepal and say it has been a real eye opener. “For me I would’ve never gone to these places unless I was on a Habitat-type build. It’s a different way to visit a country and you get involved within the local community,” says Andy. For more information contact Andy on 547 3109 or Paul on 542 4555.

Nelson’s model trains have been given the once over ahead of this weekend’s night time train rides and train driver Noel Dyer says he is looking forward to the crowds of families set to climb aboard. The annual event is put on by the Nelson Society of Modellers members on the first weekend of daylight savings as a fun event for the community. Each year the event attracts more than 1000 people, most of whom head down in their pyjamas to experience “the thrill of the trains at night time” says Noel. “We do it for the sheer enjoyment of playing with the trains at night time, seeing the little kids smiling. We are big kids ourselves really.” You can catch a ride on one of the model trains this Saturday down at the Nelson Society of Modellers at Tahunanui Beach between 6pm and 9pm, $1 per person.

Fair coincides with anniversary The Nelson branch of Save the Children is holding its annual fair on April 13. This year will be the 50th anniversary of the local sector and organisers are hoping for another successful fair as it will be the perfect way to celebrate the

milestone. The fair is a major fundraiser for Save the Children and runs by selling donated goods including kitchenware, linen, toys, jewellery, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables, jams, pickles and home baking. Some of the profits this year will be

used to help fund educational projects in the Solomon Islands, enabling children to develop better literacy and numeracy skills. The fair is held at the Stoke Memorial Hall this Saturday and will run from 9am until 12noon.

Just a thought... Currently our political leaders have, under the guise of 'rights', chosen to act undemocratically and irresponsibly by ignoring thousands of submissions to the 'same-sex marriage' bill and are pursuing legislation that is contrary to God's design for marriage and society and also contrary to the wishes of a high percentage of New Zealanders. No one has the right to redefine marriage which is a natural institution found in all religions, cultures and societies and is in no way the monopoly of just the Christian and Judeo-Christian traditions. Of even greater concern is that they have chosen to ignore the 'higher law' that exists for the benefit of society, which is defined as ‘a principle of divine or

moral law that is considered to be superior to constitutions and enacted legislation.’ History has shown that when a ‘higher law’ is violated there are consequences for that society, but it seems that lesson has not yet been learned! Throughout history there have been those who have tried to isolate and legislate Jesus Christ and his influence out of society and even the authorities of his day thought they had succeeded when they had him killed, accusing him of blasphemy and treason. The apostle Paul said "that if the rulers of the day had known God’s plan, in hindsight they would not have crucified the Lord of glory." It was Sir Winston Churchill

who said: “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” The prophet Isaiah says God's ways are so much higher than our ways and his thoughts so much greater than our thoughts, so I ask: “who are we to think we know better?” Elsewhere it states God's ways are perfect and his wisdom is profound and precious. History and hindsight can be great teachers, but God has provided us with insight as well as foresight, or the ability to see beyond the ‘seen.’ Jesus said he who has ears to hear should listen and understand, so it is my prayer and plea that our democratically elected leaders will listen to the voice of reason and act responsibly by stopping this unnecessary piece of legislation! - Ross Ferguson, Richmond Community Church.

• Long term, predominantly elderly, residents and ratepayers are currently being rated off their properties and out of their homes by the Tasman District Council (TDC). • In September 2009 TDC “at the stroke of a pen” landbanked our properties for the next 50 years to meet the Council’s proposed requirement for business development. • We had repeatedly been assured by Mayor Kempthorne and Councillors since 2007 that our rates would not increase with the new zoning (Mixed Business) until the roading and infrastructure was in place and commercial development had commenced. • At the next valuation in September 2011, Quotable Value Ltd valued our properties on the basis of “potential commercial use” rather than as existing use. • The outcome is that rates have increased dramatically. For example, rates of $3,370 in 2011/12 have increased to nearly $12,000 in 2012/13 ($225 per week) • Since 2009, nothing has changed for the residents in the affected properties. We still have no footpaths, we are on septic tanks and provide our own stormwater systems. We are on the same street as the Tasman District Council and less than 2km from their offices. • Other Councils throughout New Zealand have a Remission of Rates Policy – Land Affected by Plan Changes. Nelson City Council has and so too does Gisborne District Council where the current CEO of TDC previously worked. Why do we not have such a policy in Tasman? It is our belief that Council is revenue gathering to service their debts of $156million, increasing by another $18million this year and expected to rise to $310million within 10 years. We are first on their list – beware all Tasman residents and ratepayers – you may be next!

Lower Queen Street and Headingly Lane

The Council has asked for submissions on this issue but has included two separate policies to be commented on – thus creating confusion as to what is exactly being proposed. Council has emphasised that if our rates are remitted, there will either be a substantial rate loss or the amount will have to be added to rates of others. The total amount we are talking about is less than $40,000 over all the affected properties – a large amount when shared between only a handful of houses but approximately $1.80 if shared between all Tasman’s ratepayers. The Council does not mention these amounts in their document. If the rezoning had not occurred then the rates collected would have remained the same as in previous years so there is no actual loss of rates at all. There are extensive terms and conditions in the two proposals which essentially exclude almost all the affected ratepayers. It appears the Council have deliberately sent out a document for public consultation that will have little or no bearing on their decisions. Statements such as “ (4) shall be at the sole discretion of the Council” and “(5) The Council may refuse to remit rates even where the conditions set out in this policy are met by a Ratepayer.” are unbelievable. Why go to the expense of producing such a document when, regardless of the opinion of the ratepayers, those affected may be excluded at the whim of the Council? The current culture within the Council is to attack anyone who has had the willingness to stand up and bring to the Council’s attention any genuine concern that does not equate to the Council view. This needs to stop and the voices of the ratepayers must be heard. We need the help of all Tasman ratepayers – please take the time to have your say and make a strong submission to the Tasman District Council. Authorised by M. Clark 544 1484

Crippling Rates?

Please send your submission as outlined below. We ask the Tasman District Council to adopt the following policy under Section 102(3) Rate Remission Policy of the Local Government Act 2002. Rates Remission for Existing Land Use – Land Affected by Plan Changes Objective: To observe existing use of land affected by zoning changes where there is a plan change which reclassifies that land into a different rating bracket by way of a valuation. Criteria: • It applies to all ratepayers and properties in that zone (Northern side)

of Lower Queen Street/Headingly Lane, Richmond, in the 36.36Hc Mixed Business zone of Richmond. • It applies until the property is sold or developed and utilised for commercial purposes. • That ratepayers and property owners pay rates at the level of 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2012 rates and that they also pay any increases or decreases that apply on a percentage basis of other properties in a similar location (rural) on a yearly basis. • Rate remission shall apply to the current financial year. • Form a working party of four persons to set the criteria.

Please send your submission to: TDC Draft Annual Plan 2013/14, Private bag 4, Richmond 7050 or email to annualplan@tasman.govt.nz

Teen drinking in Richmond: Kids have, for quite some years now, learnt every trick in the book, they’ve probably rewritten this book, as to how to manipulate their parents into believing they’re angels...so to speak. Don’t get me wrong not all teenage kids are like this, kids will follow the majority. Most parents are mushrooms, I was when my kids were teens, but they turned out great, ‘cos I decided very early I wasn’t going to be “that” parent. Sharon May Patterson.

ined it for the rest. Young underages spewing on the roads and picking fights. Hope Stephens. If the parents are going to buy it for them they can take responsibility for their actions!! Amazing the pressure some parents will put on liquor outlets to sell them alcohol for their underage teenagers, who are often standing right beside them at the counter and tell lies and say they will be drinking at home with their parents supervision. I see it every weekend and they sell it to them knowing it will be consumed by a minor. Come on the age is 18, sales to parents to supply underage teens should be banned!! Parents need to wake up and stop being manipulated by their teens and learn to say no, same goes for liquor outlets! Louise Armstrong. A lot of parents are irresponsible and useless which shows in their off-spring why were they allowed to breed? Common sense and courtesy ain’t common. Chileab Gray. So the original question was: “Should parents take responsibility for preloading/fighting after events like Summer Fare?” (to paraphrase). Yes and no. It’s too broad a question. Were they 12? Or 17? Did the parents supply the alcohol or not? One of the hardest parts of parenting is trying to give (and teach) the balance

between freedom and responsibility and independence. Sometimes we get it wrong. Sometimes kids get it wrong. I know when I was a teen (say, 14) our group ranged in age from 12-18 all it takes is one 18 yearold to buy everyone’s alcohol. I don’t know what the solution is, I agree the behaviour (from what I’ve heard) is not acceptable. Beth Rogers. Lets remember also, the article was referring to a minority as is usually the case in the press, not all young teens there were drunk, nor were did their parents leave them there until 12 o’clock. I droppped off my sober 15 year old son and friends at 6pm and picked them up at 10pm still sober. However even they noticed the others who were drunk and were not impressed, I agree it’s slack parenting to allow your kids to behave like that knowingly. I find it hard, I want to give him leeway to show he can be a responsible member of the public, and then stuff like this taints all teenagers. My personal mantra is be trustworthy and responsible and I will trust you and allow you responsibilities, obviously a small number of parents don’t care (or more likely don’t know) what their kids are up to because as others have pointed out teens are smart! Hey we have all been there too!! It’s a tough one, because it sucks if a minority group destroy a family event for others. Susan Tonks.

Fishing with

Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club The first dusting of snow has hit Mount Arthur and the air temperature has dropped a few degrees along with the sea temperature. This means the fish will be thinking about moving out slowly into deeper water. Fortunately the Easter weather was pretty good and a lot of people got out fishing. We found that rod fishing for snapper was a bit slow and decided on the second day to deploy the longline, which is a great help to see if there are in fact any fish about. For those of you not familiar with how long lines work I will run you through the process. Snapper generally feed while the tide is running. When long lining from boats or kayaks, sets over clear bottom parallel to rocky outcrops or coastline can yield good fish even when the water is clear. Normally, for small boats and kayaks, a 25 hook recreational longline requires just a 25cm hand spool which is compact and very easily handled. On larger boats a 3:1 ratio geared beach reel can be fitted with an aluminium pipe around half a metre long to fit into a rod holder. The first clip on the reel is clipped to a marker buoy with a flag or a large brightly coloured float and dropped over the back of the boat. Motoring along at between 500 and 800 revs, or about 4 or 5 knots, the dropper line peels off the reel or hand spool. At the bottom end of the dropper line is a cord connecting the dropper line to the pre-stoppered hook section. In the centre of this cord a small loop is tied and provides for the placement of the first grapple. The baited traces are removed from the rack and clipped over the mainline one at a time. Two stoppers are let to pass before the next trace is clipped on. Be careful to maintain your boat speed. Speeding up

When the 25 traces have been connected to the mainline another grapple is attached to the second cord and the back dropper unwinds from the reel or hand spool. At the very end of the dropper another clips secures the line top the reel. Unclip it from the spool and attach the second float and then toss it over the back of the boat and leave the line to fish for an hour or so. To retrieve the longline simply motor back up to your first flag or float. As each trace is removed from the mainline they should be stored back on the trace rack ready for the next set. From our set we landed six 40cm brim which we otherwise wouldn’t have caught on the rods. The spat farm has been fished hard over the last few months and it would appear that the big kingfish have been a bit shy and only rats have been sighted. The odd big snapper is still about but it seems that the fish might be slowly heading up the coastline. The fringes of the marine reserve in the Abel Tasman have also been fishing well with some nice tarakihi, brim and up to 40cm blue cod being taken. Large schools of kahawai have been sighted underneath working birds and have been up to 3 kilos in size.

Wakefield were given a tough introduction to life in division one, sinking to a 6-1 home defeat against Nelson College on Saturday. But despite the loss, manager Richard Malcom says the side is just happy to be competing in Nelson’s top competition for the first time in the club’s 30 year history. “I have to take my hat off to the guys at Nelson College, they were very well organised as a team,” he says. “It was a lot quicker than what we were used to but from our perspective, with a team that has only been training together for a couple of weeks, against a team with guys in the Nelson Falcons, they certainly deserved the result.” Richard says the club’s goals for this season were to reach the top four in its first ever season in the Nelson Pine Industries division one competition, while also hoping to push into the second round of the ASB

Waimea Old Boys and Wanderers have recorded big wins to kick off the 2013 club rugby season. Both playing at home, Star & Garter Waimea and Taylor’s Contracting Wanderers blew their respective opponents off the park with Wanderers beating defending champions Galbraith Nelson 39-19 at Brightwater and Waimea beating arch-rivals Accessman Stoke 30-19 at Jubilee Park. Waimea got off to a cracking start, with fullback James Lowe scoring twice and setting up another try for winger Michael Bates. Billy Guyton, playing his

first game for Waimea in three years, kicked an early penalty and a conversion to give the hosts a 20-0 lead after just 20 minutes. Assistant coach Nick Marquet says they were thrilled with the start. “We played with a bit of confidence and are pretty happy to have won our first game of the year, we haven’t done that for a while.” Waimea didn’t start the second half well, allowing Stoke to come back into the match but a third try to James sealed the result. This weekend Waimea travel to Motueka to take on the Kahurangi Hawks, a

combination of Huia and Riwaka. Meanwhile, Nelson coach Peter Grigg says he expects Wanderers to be the team everyone is chasing following his side’s opening round loss in Brightwater. “They seem to be well organised as a club and as a team, they were well prepared,” the coach of the side that went unbeaten last year says. Wanderers have been boosted by the arrivals of Nelson College stars Steve Soper and Kerehama Barrett while Ryan Setephano, Alex Ainley and substitute Ben Douglas all impressed on the weekend. They face Stoke away this Saturday.

Having a ball and keeping independent Richmond based Oakwoods’ resident Helen Cook, has found the key to staying “forever young”! Helen, along with her husband Alan, have recently left their farm in Mahana, where, until recently, they were both very active; raising sheep and cattle. Helen had a large garden and has a very active family with a number of grandchildren. Despite always being quite active, Helen has become aware of some of life’s inevitable changes in the last few years: with a few more aches and pains and the first signs of being a bit slower to do jobs at home. Concerned that moving from a farm life into a retirement village might curtail her independence and her fitness, Helen saw a flyer for an exercise class at Richmond Physiotherapy Centre. Once a week, Helen has been attending a strengthening and balance class in the bright sunny gym at Richmond Physiotherapy’s clinic in Lower Queen Street Health. “It is so handy to pop over the fence to this class where I am having lots of fun and working hard for an hour and noticing the improvements”, says Helen. Physiotherapist, Sharon Bailey, who supervises the class, says there is good scientific evidence that an exercise pro-

gramme that includes specific strengthening exercises benefits an older person quite significantly. In particular, bone density loss is slowed which helps protect from bone fractures if there is an accidental fall. Muscle tone is preserved, which helps an older person stay independent by building the larger muscles in the legs and arms so sitting to standing is easier and general mobility is improved. Balance exercises along with strengthening can also help prevent falls and the overall benefits for an older person might make the difference so you can stay in your own home longer or be active and independent in a retirement village. Sharon’s exercises involve using light hand weights and rubber tubing for improving arm strength. Leg strength exercises use body weight as the resistance and in some cases weights and tubing are added to increase the difficulty. Maria Fiatarone Singh, a professor at the University of Sydney School of Medicine was recently quoted as saying, “If I had to do only one thing for the frail older person, it would clearly be weightlifting exercises, and not any other form of exercise.” Even people over 85 years of age show marked improvement and can safely

Helen Cook enjoying her weekly strengthening sessions at Richmond Physiotherapy. manage a strengthening programme. If you are planning to stay fit and independent you can be confident that the physiotherapists at Richmond Physiotherapy Centre understand the requirements to maximise your improvement while providing a safe environment to exercise in and test the boundaries. Ulti-

mately this is a way to have some fun and to improve your ability to stay “forever young”. Sharon’s class is on Wednesday afternoon at 1pm in the gym upstairs at Lower Queen Street Health. You can ask for more details by honing 544 0327 for more details. Business Update. Adv.

Triathlete takes out Nelson round

Full time triathlete Tom Davison had his best road racing result winning the second round of Benchmark Homes Elite Cycling Series in Nelson over the weekend with an impressive display of climbing in the last 500 metres. Tom won the 132 kilometre race in three hours and twenty four minutes, making his winning move at the top of a tough 20 percent final climb that led to the finishing line, leaving Tom Hubbard, Tim Rush and Scott Thomas unable to match his climbing over the final 200 metres. “We were all looking after Robin [Reid], who was clearly our team leader, but his legs were pretty stuffed after his solo effort in winning the GrapeRide yesterday,” he says. The 23 year triathlete joked he probably ‘wouldn’t go for a run’ after today’s race, as he now looks towards heading to the United States in two weeks to start his American triathlon campaign.

SHOWERS SHOWERS SHOWERS SHOWERS

The course had several tough climbs, including the four kilometre long Spooners saddle, and this was where the first significant breaks occurred which saw a group of six riders get away to be chased by another bunch of 14 riders which included the series elite leader Brad Evans. Tom Hubbard finished second and took the Under 23 series leaders jersey and Tim was third. Two teams members of the New Zealand team’s pursuit squad that finished fifth in London, Jamie Nielsen and Lauren Ellis, combined to escape from the field early Hope cyclist Karen Fulton climbs the Spooners Range in the second on, establishing a lead of over seven round of the Benchmark Homes, Tasman Classic Cycling Series.
