Mum told Olympic star recognised unpaid job trial is fraud Phillip Rollo Reporter

Work and Income appears to have wrongly accused a Richmond mother of fraud, stating that free work trials are illegal, when they are not. Amber Heyes says she’s been on the Domestic Purposes Benefit for around 18 months and has been unemployed for the past four months. When her youngest child started school recently she decided to find work again and approached several cafes, as she has worked as a barista in the past. She struck a deal with owner of the Sundial Square coffee cart to do an unpaid trial for several hours over two weeks to show her she was capable of the job. After the two week trial Amber says she was offered the part time job and was thrilled. But her case manager at Work and Income, Megan Goodman, wrote to her saying to do a trial without getting paid is illegal and her new employer’s details would be passed to Inland Revenue, for them to investigate. The Ministry of Business, In-

novation and Employment confirmed to Waimea Weekly that unpaid trials are legal, meaning the case manager appears to have got it wrong. After raising the issues with Work and Income, a representative told the Weekly that it will investigate the matter but it could not comment on it in time for this article. Amber says during the trial she saw her case manager, who is based in Richmond, walk past the coffee cart and she waved out to her. “I said to her ‘it looks like a might get a job here, isn’t that great?’” A week later Amber says she told Work and Income that she did get the job but was told they didn’t believe the trial was unpaid. Her case manager wrote: “We do take fraud seriously and if we have a fraud allegation we must follow SEE PAGE 2

Going to the London Olympics was a dream come true for hockey international Anita Punt but she still doesn’t like to talk about the result. While finishing inside the top four in the world would be a welcome result for any New Zealand hockey team, fourth place at an Olympic Games is often considered the worst position to finish, missing out on a medal by just one placing. Although Anita came home empty handed, the experience is something she will never forget and to recognise her efforts, the fastest woman in world hockey was presented with an Olympic pin from Sport Tasman on Friday afternoon. The pin – which is given to every athlete that has represented New Zealand at the Olympics – has her Olympic number engraved on it, and was last presented in Nelson to Golden Bay cyclist Jack Bauer. Anita described the presentation, which was held during the conclusion of the Marie Fry Trophy secondary school tournament, as “pretty special,” before the pin was officially pinned on by former Olympian Jeff Rackley. While Jack’s presentation was SEE PAGE 2

it up with our due process. The Integrity Intervention Unit follow-up with all fraud allegations and with IRD.” Amber says the email from Work and Income was out of order and she was made to feel like a criminal. “I don’t want to be on a benefit and I’ve always worked, other than the past four months. I’m not the kind that tries to get every dollar out of the government. I’ve tried to do it all right and gone out and got a job, even offering to work for free to prove I can do it and now it seems I’m being punished for it. “I’m not worried about the IRD investigation because we haven’t done anything wrong but I think the way they’ve gone about this stinks and I feel sorry for Rebecca, it was a big move for her to take me on. I’m genuine and I try to work hard for my children and do the right thing.”

held following the Games last year, Anita’s busy scheduled was only vacated last week and a fleeting visit back to Nelson doubled as the perfect opportunity, according to Sport Tasman CEO Nigel Muir. “I know she is fast, but we have really struggled over the last two years to catch up with Anita to award her with this pin,” he says. The 122 cap Black Stick, who already has a silver medal from the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, says the Olympic Games was the ultimate honour. “I guess thinking about it now it’s a huge honour and growing up here I never would have thought I’d get to go.

changes your life.” A well known athlete in her own right, Anita admits her inner sports fan came out when walking through the Olympic Village where thousands of other international sporting superstars were based. “You’ll just be strolling along and bump into LeBron James, Usain Bolt and Mo Farrah,” she explains. “I really wanted a picture with Usain Bolt but I actually ate my lunch too quick and he was gone. The other girls got a picture and I was so gutted but you got to remember that they’re there to compete and how annoying it might be, so you try to respect them.” Anita is committed to the Commonwealth Games and the World Cup next year and could return to the Olympics in 2016.

Keeping two cops a ‘relief ’ for town

WEDNESDAY 11 September 2013

Brenda Grant Richmond

Phillip Rollo Reporter

Police have backed down from a proposal that would have seen just one constable based in Wakefield. Currently two policemen are there, officers Marty Tutton and Peter Cobledick, but plans were in place to shift one out to Motueka, as police reviewed the way it serviced rural areas. Allan Wasley, a minister, and also chair of the Wakefield Community Council, spoke out about the proposal and described the u-turn as a “relief ” for the town. “I’m absolutely delighted for the community because it’s the community that really values having the police based here,” says Allan, who believed the move would have also had a negative impact on surrounding areas like Brightwater and Tapawera. “All those communities value having someone they can talk to face-to-face and a lot of it is about relationships with the community.” While police were brief in their announcement, which said the

Two police officers will remain based at the Wakefield Police station after a strong response from the public. decision was made as a result of submissions and feedback, they did say other proposals within the restructure remain under consultation. Allan says the current two constables have a significant relationship with the community and he had worked alongside them on the community council. “All sorts of local groups talk to them and that makes a big difference to the level of policing we get. It also means a lot of preventative work has been done. If other police come in to town it’s generally

for an emergency.” Allan believes that it’s integral for the community to have local constables with strong community knowledge and relationship – something he says outweighs in depth technology. “Sometimes city thinking is a lot different to rural reality.” The Wakefield Community Council held a meeting last night. Labour MP Damien O’Connor, who had also spoken out about the proposal, was to attend, as were police and council representatives.

The Tui Book, which features photographs of tui in local gardens, will be part of the display and is available to purchase and to win. The display will be in the mall from 9am to 5pm on Thursday and Friday. The book winner will be announced in Waimea Weekly.

This year there were more funds available and the committee decided on granting to seven charities: Alzheimers Nelson Tasman; the Hearing Association; Motueka Victim Support; Murchison Theatre; Nelson Tasman Multicultural Council; Richmond Riding for the Disabled and Whakatu Riding for the Disabled. DISAPPEARANCE ‘SUSPICIOUS’: The disappearance three and a half years ago of Nelson teenager Leo Lipp-Neighbours has finally been labelled suspicious by police. Police investigating the disappearance, say information received from the public has led them to the conclusion that Leo’s disappearance may not be an accident. Leo was last seen in Watson St, Nelson on Sunday January 24, 2010.

Peggy Martin wanted to earn her first set of new golf clubs on the course. Having started off with a second hand set that she didn’t know “one end from the other” in 1952, Peggy’s goal was to play to a 16 handicap, which was just two below her own at the time. But of course it just so happened Peggy achieved her goal around the time of her birthday, and was helped by her late husband Richard who went halves with her on a new set. Peggy used those clubs right throughout her amateur playing career, which was highlighted by being the ladies immediate champion at the Totaradale Golf Club, until 2007 when her “aging bones were the boss” and she had to retire, passing them down to a family member. Speaking ahead of Totaradale Golf Club’s 75th anniversary which is being held on October 5 and 6, the club’s life member explains that earning your new golfing equipment was just “what happened back then”. “When the blokes came back from overseas you couldn’t just go out and buy top of the range. We were quite happy with our two clubs and a putter.” Peggy, who didn’t start playing golf until her children were “old enough,” has many stories of when Richard treated her to new golfing equipment. “I said to my husband ‘if I win the championship will you buy me something?’ I came home, he asked how I got on, I said ‘oh, okay’. He asked how much I won by, I said ‘oh by about six or five’. Which is bloody good.” Because Richard was a butcher, Peggy says most of the time on the green happened during the weekends. And one day shortly after her own championship

Property insights What’s important when preparing your home for sale? There are so many important things that you should do to have your home looking the best ever, but one thing that is often overlooked is the local authority property file. Have you done any, or inherited any, un-permitted work? Is your fire place compliant, has your house been built as per the plans? Is there anything recorded on your file that requires an explanation and how will this impact on your price or the ability to sell your property?

Ph 544 2228 A record breaking fair has announced the gala season officially open, after a stellar crowd turned out for Appleby School’s Country Fair. Saturday’s event attracted fair goers into the thousands and is the first gala on the calendar for the Nelson and Tasman regions, with other schools to follow suit in the lead up to summer. Principal Graham Avery says he couldn’t believe the “phenomenal” crowd that attended this year’s fair and says he was “over the moon” with the entire day. “It was full on and chocka for most of the time. It was definitely bigger than last year.” He says part of the fair’s success can be put down to its country charm, with people coming from outside of the Tasman area to attend. “We’ve got that country flavour with the paddocks, the animals, but we’re close enough to town for everyone to be able to attend.” Early counts have confirmed the fair has beaten last year’s takings with a record $42,000, which will more than likely be used in a similar fashion to previous years, going towards paying a salary for another teacher, special education projects and subsidising school activities to spread it evenly. “The highlight for me is that we are a small school, but every year people that have been through or are somehow connected to the school come back to help out and support the fair. It’s always a huge success.” In keeping with tradition, the Appleby School Country Fair has not yet had a rainy day and this year was no different says Graham. “It’s a spring gala, and we had a spring day for it. It was quite stunning really.” The next fair is the Hope School Gala which is being held on September 21.

The Car Company’s September drive for the women’s and children’s refuge has begun, with a street appeal collecting the first thousand dollars last week. The Car Company last year teamed up with the Nelson Women’s and Children’s Refuge to help raise its profile in the community and some much-needed money. It was so successful – raising more than $18,000 – that they’ve decided to do it again this year. This year the Car Company has organised collection days every Wednesday this month from 11am to 2pm and a quiz night at the end of the month. The first of the collection days was held last Wednesday with members of the Tasman Makos rugby team also lending their hand, helping to collect $1142.80. The Car Company’s marketing manager, Belinda Koloamatangi, says it’s was great to be out on the street and seeing the support in the community for the organisation. “Most people were really generous and the Makos were great, they got right in there and people were happy to reach in their pockets to support the cause.”


Collecting for the Women’s and Children’s Refuge is from left; Liam Squire and Shane Christie of the Tasman Makos, Trudi Brand of the refuge, Belinda Koloamatangi and Heath Scott of the Car Company. The collection will also be held on September 11 and 25 outside BNZ on Trafalgar St and on September 18 in Sundial Square in Richmond. Car Company owner Shane Drummond says he’s rapt to be able to support the refuge again this year and is keen to hear from anyone who may want to donate items for the quiz night on September 27. “Last year we had people donate all sorts, even a brand new television, and that helped us raise as much as we did. So anyone with any big ticket items can get in touch with Belinda and hopefully we’ll be able

to get some cash out of it for the refuge,” he says. Refuge manager, Trudi Brand, says the promotion was fantastic for the organisation last year and she’s hoping it will be just as big this September. “We were blown away by the support of the Car Company last year and them doing it again is huge for us. We’re excited and thrilled that they’re at it again.” Donations can also be made at any Car Company yard in the region; there are two in Nelson, one in Tahunanui and one in Richmond.

Richmond Kindy turns 50

Nadia Lourens, Belle Pearce, Chloe Lourens, Seth Jellyman and Jadya Evans at Richmond Kindergarten.

Children used to walk themselves to Richmond Kindergarten when it first opened. There was no fence and they would splash about in a water trough outside. Oh, how things have changed. This Friday the kindergarten will celebrate its 50th birthday, an occasion its head teacher says is special for the community. “It was the first kindergarten building in Richmond,” says Robyn Amos, who has been there for more than 20 years. When asked what had changed the most since the kindergarten’s early

days, Robyn quickly answers “safety”. “Children would walk home by themselves and the fence didn’t have to be a certain height. The ratio of teachers to children has definitely increased,” she explains. The primary focus of a kindergarten, which operates all day now, has changed over the years too, and the teachers say it is more about transitioning children onto primary school. “Now there’s a curriculum that we work towards. We want these children to be successful at school so this is all about

making sure they have all the skills needed so they can succeed when they move on.” Olympian Anita Punt was a former student, and probably the most famous to attend the kindergarten. The schedule for the 50th birthday celebration includes an open day for past students from 8:30am until 12:45pm, a shared lunch with the current families and a dinner with previous staff members. Tracking down former teachers has been “a bit of a mission” but there will be some coming from out of town.

Club members told to pay up Suburban Club members have been told the club is in financial trouble and they each need to pay a $100 donation to help keep it afloat. In a letter dated September 4, the chairman and president of the club wrote to each of its 4800 members advising them that the club is in “substantial arrears” to the Inland Revenue Department and other creditors. Club chairman Ross Strawbridge told Waimea Weekly the situation was “gutting” and that the general manager of the club was no longer in the job. Included in the letter was an invoice for $100 and the plea for cash has also been promoted over the sound system in the club over the past week. But the board says it’s confident of paying off the $300,000 it owes by the end of September and has received a donation of more than $128,000 by one club member. “In light of this, the board has given an undertaking to our bank and major creditors that all of our remaining creditors will be cleared by September 30,” said the letter, signed by Ross Strawbridge and president Jim Reeves. It also said that the board became aware of the arrears in August as the debt had not been disclosed in monthly management reports. They say the club is trading profitably after some cost cutting measures.

Parent and Child Expo this weekend Just a thought... This weekend everything baby to teen and all ages in between will come together at the Nelson Parent and Child Expo. This is the third annual expo that has been held here in Nelson, and the event just keeps getting bigger and better says organiser Prue Fothergill. Due to the growing success of the expo, this year’s event has moved to the Trafal-

gar Centre to allow for more exhibitors says Prue and the public can expect to see a wide variety of products and demonstrations from local small businesses. With a variety of child care, services and product specialists lined up, Prue says the expo is a must for local families.

baby gear and maternity clothing and swap them or sell them. Proceeds from the swap will go to Sands, Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Support Nelson. Items for the swap need to be brought to the Trafalgar Centre - Friday afternoon/ evening along with the form at The expo begins this Saturday at 10am. Entry is by gold coin donation.

Your proven Mayor for Tasman

It is such a joy to see the signs of spring emerge, after a season of living inside, we suddenly burst forth with great plans to knock our gardens, our flowers, and our properties into shape. What happens to the trees, the soil, the flowers and grass etc, is nothing short of miraculous. It’s like the sort of joyful anticipation and expectation a new couple have, when they know they are about to bring a baby into the world. You can’t express the power of God’s work in creation easily, but each spring we know new life surges out of nothing. We didn’t do it, nothing we do can really stop it or recreate it – but it fills our souls with delight. In the same way, faith in God pushes our expectations beyond the mundane, the ordinary, the boring. Remember when people used to stop and have a full body bath, and just soak and delight in it? At times like spring, we could do well to pause and think about life, and why we even exist. Making money seems important, until you compare it to the joy of a new child or grandchild. Money cannot buy happiness. We sometimes rush about so much, we fail to stop and think about the mind behind it all, the reason why we were bought into existence in the first place. As a Christian I believe that God created us, and sent his son Jesus to give us new hope and new life. So when you randomly clear the old garden, load up some new soil and plant little seeds, bulbs, flowers and trees – pause and look up. We are given the seasons to produce practical things like food and crops, but we are also given them simply to enjoy, like the daffodils, and blossom etc. God gives us every good thing to richly enjoy, why not take time to turn our expectation, into saying thanks to God our Maker, who is worthy of our praise. Your local church is a great place to rediscover the power of true worship and thankfulness this spring. - Allan Wasley, Wakefield Anglican Church.

Nek minit ....and who will pay for that? I think home school is going to be the way.... Dwayne Robinson. Kit Maling says he will review the $240,000 the council spends on youth events, if elected mayor: Better to spend money on community projects than on councillor’s pay rises. Tom Booth (via website). Not enough. Ben Van Den Elzen. Way too much. Dwayne Robinson. Far too much I can see who pays rates. Simon Scowen. I just read in Waimea Weekly that Kit Maling is looking to cut back funding on Youth Events. The Tasman Band Tour has had amazing feedback for the whole time it’s been running from the young people involved, the parents and young people who come to watch, it is hardly an over staffed event! The Tasman Skatepark Tour is another successful event, that although aimed at youth, is a whole community event, I have spoken with a 70 year old man in Motueka spectating one of these events who thought it was brilliant and really show cased

the talents and courage of our youth ( I say courage because some of the tricks they pull off would challenge the bravest! BMX back flips anyone!?). It brings the community into the lives of our youth to encourage and appreciate their abilities. At these events, all the youth join in to encourage each other and offer each other advice and support. You just have to spend an afternoon at a Skate park to see how positive it is for everyone involved. Maybe Kit should do that? Are they not our future? Are they not worth just as much funding as cycle ways and roads. I would hope that a ‘review’ of the funding for these events would involve strong community consultation. Rant over. Back to work. Jacinda Nurse. The Tasman Band Tour and Skatepark Tour are great events that are run on a shoestring. I support their continued rollout through the council. Let’s support our young people, rather than just bitch and moan when they fall off the rails. I would have though Kit, as a former police officer, would have appreciated this. Tara Forde. Interesting statement from Kit Maling, I believe pre-school environmental education is too important to drop as this lacks foresight in increasing the next generation’s awareness of the health of our community and environs. Unfortunately once we decided to seal all

the roads in our district we didn’t think ahead about the enormous cost associated with maintaining them in a roadworthy condition. Sue Wilson. Council signs: It annoys me that councillors are allowed to put signs up all over the place at election time yet businesses get fined for having signs on the road side because it is a distraction to drivers. Seems like double standard to me. (Via text). Couple celebrate 70 years of marriage: Lovely story on the Teece’s, lovely couple. (Via text). Beautiful x Tania Morris. Aw they are so cute x. Louise Armstrong. Congratulations! Vicki York. Appleby Fair makes kids happy: Well done to the organisers of the Appleby School Fair. Another great day and my kids have just returned home with big smiles on their faces and plenty of stories to tell their nana.

WANDERERS SPORTS CLUB Thursday 19 to Saturday 21 September

Proud supporters of Wanderer’s Pig Hunt “The best place for trees in the top of the south”

Golden Hills Road (off Moutere Highway) Open: Wed, Fri & Sun 9am - 4pm Ph 544 9987

Jayden Moore clears the obstacle in the Pig Carrying Competition 2012. The Taylors Wanderers Sports Club Pig Hunt Challenge is back, so put away your rugby boots and bring out your hunting gear for one more grand final. This is a chance for your Junior Rugby Club to win some cold hard cash, and what better way to wrap up the rugby season than a bit of friendly rivalry off the field, and in the bush. Now is the time to get your entries in for what is set to be another fantastic weekend of fun. It’s all about facing off against your rugby rivals for one last round, and putting a spotlight on the JAB players to support our up and coming rugby stars. The heaviest combined weight of each rugby club’s three heaviest boars takes home the trophy and a cash prize for their JAB section. Hunting will kick off at 12am Thursday September 19, and weigh in will be held on the Saturday from 2pm That gives you three days to get yourself a monster boar, so try your luck to be in to win some awesome prizes, and support a great local hunting competition. While the event benefits our local JAB players, it is not limited in any way to just rugby players. The event is open to any and all keen hunters; you can simply choose which local rugby club you want to hunt on behalf of when you enter. The hunt is hosted by the Taylors Wanderers Sports Club, who will be defending their title as champions of last year’s event. After last year’s hunt they have been parading the trophy proudly and they won’t be giving up the title without a

battle. Thanks to some extremely generous sponsors, there is a $15,000 prize pool up for grabs so not only can you take home a cash prize for your JAB, but you can also win yourself a prize for taking part. This year the competition is expected to draw huge crowds, since the announcement was made that Hunting Aotearoa will be filming the hunt for their TV programme. This is an awesome opportunity to put our town on the map and to rub shoulders with Matua Parkinson from the programme, so get out there and show him how it’s done in Tasman – but don’t give away all the good hunting spots! Last year’s competition saw more than 100 entries prior to the event, and 31 boars weighed in on the day. Alongside two stags, there was also an awesome amount of rabbits, possums, goats and hares, so the benchmark has been set for this year’s challenge. This year’s sections are Senior, Intermediate, Women and Junior with great cash prizes on the offering. The winner of average weight as usual, will walk away with the biggest prize, $1000 and the winner of the heaviest boar will take home $500. Second heaviest will earn $300, best tusks $100, and heaviest stag will win $250. The womens’ section prize for the heaviest pig will be $200, and second place will take home $100. The intermediate section will feature some great prizes for heaviest pig, second heaviest and third

Paula’s Preschool Paula’s Preschool Richmond welcomes parents and children, one and all, to attend their exciting open day next Saturday, September 21. This is a great opportunity to find out why this preschool, with an outstanding reputation throughout the Tasman region, is so special. Anthony and Stacey Holder are well known in the community for providing quality preschool education in a genuine environment, and they are opening the doors to the public to showcase exactly what Paula’s Preschool is about and why it is such a fantastic place to be a part of. With green grass, plenty of sunshine, shade and spacious grounds, children that attend Paula’s Preschool in Richmond

Ca have plenty of places and spaces to explore. Located centrally at 42 Waverley St, Paula’s Preschool is the perfect place for your child to learn, grow and enjoy their early years, in a safe and caring environment. Supported by warm and friendly staff each and every child is made to feel nurtured at Paula’s Pre-

school. Their focus on family and community means that all members of the family are made to feel welcome from the very first time they come along. Children simply love attending Paula’s Preschool, because they find it stimulating, challenging and enjoy the sense of belonging they have within the centre’s community. A recent ERO report on Paula’s Preschool Rich-

mond found the school was “well placed to promote positive learning outcomes for children” along with fantastic recognition for the great facility they provide. This industry nod is a proud achievement for Anthony, for whom Paula’s Preschool Richmond has been a long time vision and dream. Anthony’s parents first founded Paula’s Preschools 18 years ago, and since taking over

Paula’s Preschool Richmond 10 years ago, Anthony continues to build on their fantastic framework for early childhood teaching.

and literacy, preparing the children for their first years in primary school. Children find the transition to school a lot easier after attending Paula’s Academy and get an ideal head start to their early years in education. Preparation for school life is incredibly important, and the feedback Anthony and Stacey have received from both school teachers and parents has been really posi-

tive. “Teachers say that children that come from Richmond Academy are well equipped to learn, are able to focus, and have well developed self-help skills.” A common response from Parents is that their children are flying through the reading levels. The team have worked closely with local schools and new entrant teachers, to get the programme balance right, and the children who attend simply thrive in the environment. Smooth transitions are so important for both children and parents. From Paula’s Tiny Tots (for children aged under 2) to Paula’s Preschool Richmond and Richmond Academy, then onto Primary Schools, Parents feel comfortable that Paula’s deliver a seamless transition from

Are the Makos the real deal? Phillip Rollo Reporter

brother, Willis Scott made his starting debut for Otago in the loss – a proud night for family and friends with Mitchell coming on to score the final try of the match, already a contender for try of the year. The Makos will travel north to Albany to face a winless North Harbour side this Friday night – a game they should win, before taking on Mike Coman’s Hawke’s Bay in Nelson the following weekend. While all eyes will be on the North Harbour game this weekend, Tasman fans will also be hoping for a Taranaki win against Ranfurly Shield holders Counties Manakau. If Taranaki wins, and can see off Bay of Plenty in the first challenge, Tasman would get the second challenge – plenty of what ifs, but a real possibility.

Say goodbye to e to glasses,


Could this be the year? The Tasman Makos have shot to the top of the ITM Cup Championship standings after thrashing former Shield holders Otago 49-16 in a slick all-round performance at Trafalgar Park on Friday night. Behind a dominant forward pack, which caused the Southerners plenty of trouble at lineout and scrum time, the backs were given an abundance of freedom to run riot with Tom Marshall leading the charge, and powerful winger James Lowe bagging two tries in the rout. It was the second week in a row that Tasman scored 40 points or more, and on current form, there’s nothing to suggest that the team will stop at that, with a number of players already putting their hand up for higher honours – do we need to mention James Lowe again?

Back at the table Excuses of rustiness were acceptable on Thursday night – the first time table tennis had been played at Saxton Stadium since April’s flood. With the entire stadium out of action, Nelson Table Tennis was forced to relocate matches out to Club Waimea in Richmond albeit on a temporary basis. But with the green light given by Nelson City Council to get back in the purposebuilt facility, Thursday night saw big numbers drawn back to play again. Association spokesperson Kay Hazeldine says while the offer to use Club Waimea was appreciated, it wasn’t an ideal situation, having to juggle


their timetable around events being based at the Richmond facility. “We only had eight tables and the lighting was hard. You’d lose sight of the ball. But it was somewhere for us to go,” she explains. The biggest frustration was the fact just a week prior to the flood Nelson Table Tennis had been involved in an expo promoting the sport at Saxton Stadium, and a large number of new players were expected to join. While Kay admits she initially hoped the rebuild wouldn’t take as long as four months, she says it’s awesome being back. “I think a few of us might be a bit rusty, I was anyway,” she laughs.

The school books were left at home and replaced with football boots, kicking tees, hockey sticks and road bikes as Waimea College’s budding sport stars headed across the country while the annual tournament week took place. While Waimea College tasted some success across the codes, it was an overall mixed week results-wise. In Nelson three major tournaments were held, the Lotto Premier Girls New Zealand Secondary School Football Championship, the Marie Fry Hockey Tournament and the AA Zone 4 Secondary School Basketball Premiership – the latter being a South Island competition. In the football, the girls first XI finished a very credible 11th position. A solid defensive line, featuring Junior Football Fern Emily Jensen, leaked only eight goals all tournament, and the side managed to hold eventual winners Mt Albert Grammar School to just 0-1. In the hockey the girls first XI had a tough week but managed to finish on a high note, thrashing Kamo High School 10-0 in the last game to end

the tournament in 15th place and avoid the dreaded 16th spot. Kirsty Heyward and Brittani Harrington both got hat-tricks in the final game. None of the basketball teams managed to qualify for nationals, with local rivals Nayland College taking out the boys section of the South Island tournament. The Waimea College girls team were the top Nelson side, however, finishing ninth place. Other results from around the country included the U15 rugby team which finished second at the co-ed tournament in Christchurch, losing the final to John McGlashen. Waimea qualified through to the final after edging Burnside 19-12 in the semi final. The senior A netball team also had a successful trip, finishing third place at the South Island competition to secure a spot at nationals. The boys first XI couldn’t win back the Jim Wishart football trophy they won last year, ending the second tier tournament in fourth place. The junior boys basketball team, which traveled to Dunedin, had to settle for a minor placing, but won its final game against Kavanagh, completely dominating them 74-24.

Max for Mayor I am locally educated, have lived most of my life in Richmond and I am a Registered Nurse and a paramedic. I have seen our district grow dramatically especially in the last ten years. As a local business owner and Managing Director of MediMax for more than fifteen years I have developed an extensive working network throughout the district and have a strong sense of what the people of Tasman want from their Council. The people of Tasman are saying it is time for a change.  Rates must be affordable and fair – we cannot have another Headingly Lane.  Core services must again become our priority. We need a flexible policy, however, so that funds can be reallocated should we again face circumstances such as the recent flooding of homes and businesses.  The majority of Tasman residents are opposed to amalgamation. It is possible to work co-operatively without amalgamating.  The current Council has borrowed $100 million in the last 6 years. Borrowing currently stands at $159 million and is expected to rise to $311 Million. We must regain control over this excessive spending.  The proposed Lee Valley Dam must not go ahead. The only capacity it has is to financially ruin our district. Other safer and more affordable options for irrigation and water supply are available – let’s investigate them first before spending even more money.  We must balance the growth of our local industries with protecting our unique and beautiful environment.

The people of Tasman must be listened to – I am prepared to listen.

Garin reach final

WEDNESDAY 11 September 2013

TEEN TOO QUICK: A scorching first lap by Waimea College’s Scott Barr put him at the front of the pack, and that’s where he stayed. Competing in the Under-17 catergory, Scott took out the first round of the Nelson Mountain Bike Club’s Cross Country Series, held at Codger’s Mountain Bike Park on Sunday morning. Meg Bichard was the in-form rider of the women’s category, edging out Ingrid Richter by 1 min over the 6 laps they raced. Full results from the race can be found at Round 2 of this series will also be held on October 13 and will incorporate the South Island Masters Games. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

Fishing with

Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club The Dawnbreakers Fishing club held their open day on Sunday at their new venue the Tasman Bay Cruising Club, with a fantastic turnout of keen and interested anglers. There were over 80 members signed up for the new season on the day, with at least 60 per cent of those being new to the club. Being a nice hot sunny day with a BBQ going flat out, new members were able to meet and mingle with previous members to gain an appreciation of what the club is all about. New members had various reasons for joining the club which included how to fish certain areas, learn new techniques from experienced fisherman to increase their hook up rates, be able to socialise on a regular basis, the use of measuring boards, partake in club fishing outings including day trips and weekends away. Everybody who hadn’t been to the Tasman Bay Cruising Club before were very impressed with the buildings well setup interior, its warm inviting atmosphere, to the decks that look out over the boat ramp and marina. With our club days now being on a Sunday afternoon from 3 till 5pm, there will be no better place to enjoy an afternoon drink and talk about fishing. We already have club trips organised to Okiwi Bay, French Pass, and Havelock along with day trips around the Top of The South. Also on our Club Days we will have guest speakers from the likes of MAF, Niwa, Coastguard, and some of our own club members parting with their vast wealth of information gained from years of experience on the water. The only catch to enjoying not only the above information and club venue but the up to date fishing reports on when, where and how the fish are biting, is to join the club. With our large number of members

Gavin Williams with a 10kg plus snapper caught and released at D’urville. which by opening day will be well over 120 members, we will be able to cover a wide area of the ocean, enabling us to put you on the hot spots quicker than ever. Our season starts on October 1 so there are still a few weeks to get signed up and on our email list. Just to let you all know we have it on good authority that the snapper are on the move and coming our way. Our scouts are now out on a weekly basis following the snapper from D’urville Island to Tasman Bay and will keep us informed. D’urville is still producing some large double digit snapper with slow jigs doing the damage. Delaware and Cable Bay are still the best local spots for picking up gurnard, kahawai and small snapper at the moment and will continue to get better as the water temperature starts to rise.

Trophy well within Richmond’s reach Richmond Athletic will look to end the football season on a high note when it challenges FC Nelson Sprig & Fern in the Price Charity Cup final. The last game of the winter season will double as Richmond’s last chance to win a trophy this year, having finished second in the league and then struggling to sixth place in the Top of the South competition. Coach Marc Evans, who took over the reigns at the beginning of the division one season, is well aware of what’s at stake and believes his young side are a good chance to win against the league champions. “We’ve

Phillip Rollo Reporter

got a good bunch of lads and they’re certainly up for it,” he says. “We’re a young bunch but as the season has gone on we’ve done better and better. We lost twice to FC Nelson 3-0, and then drew, and then we beat them in our last encounter, so hopefully we can continue that run of form this weekend.” Richmond players had a week off training last week, with a handful of the youngsters involved at national secondary school tournaments with

Waimea College, but the side was back together last night putting the final touches on their finals preparations. There are two other Richmond sides contesting trophies on the final weekend of football. The Richmond Colts side are into the Glen Stephens Trophy final against Flight Cell Tahunanui first XI, a tournament contested by division two, three and four teams, while Richmond Thistle will take on Golden Bay in the A.R. Hurst Trophy final, a knockout cup just for division three teams. All three finals will be played at Saxton Field from 1:15pm.
