Rain a blessing for local farmers Holiday makers might frown at the persistent rain, but the region’s crop growers are loving it. Waimea will have no water restrictions before Christmas for the first time in two years and some crop growers are saying they are having the best growing season in a number of years, because of heavy December rain.

Water restrictions have been implemented in seven of the past eight years, with 2009 being the only exception. In 2010 water was rationed from December 6, but a Tasman District Council hydrologist estimates December 2011’s rainfall statistics to “double” the December average. Close to 130mm of rain fell at the TDC nursery over the past 30 days, while

120mm fell at the TDC office. While 60mm of rain has fallen at the TDC offices already in December, where the December average is 90mm. But it is expected to spike with 280mm of rain predicted by Nelson Tasman Civil Defence Emergency Management over the next two days. “We’re two thirds of the way there but only

halfway through the month and in another two days I imagine we will be well over that total,” says TDC hydrologist Matt McLarin. “We’ve got a lot of heavy rain coming.” Water restrictions force urban residents to restrict water on odd or even days depending on their letterbox number.

Finishing off the school year means a lot more for year 6 students, it spells the end of primary school and another step towards becoming an old person. Hope School, Richmond School, Henley School, Ranzau School, Brightwater School, Appleby School and Wakefield School all finish this week, with most of them closing on Friday. Jense Noteboom, 11, will be heading to Waimea Intermediate School next year and says while he will miss the “fun” at Hope School, he was looking forward to modules, hard technology and meeting new people. Shiloh Bell, 11, will also be going to Waimea Intermediate School and says Hope School was everything she could have asked for. “It was such a cool school. The teachers are the best and so is the principal.” Jense wasn’t worried about going to a bigger school, but did like all the things that Hope had to offer. “We were so lucky with some of the things we get. It’s a small school with a big playground and everything.”

Pavilion sources cups and saucers More than 2000 people will hit Saxton Oval when the South Island Colgate Games reaches town in the middle of January next year, but the organisers are in need of cups and plates to help feed them. With 120 officials coming from all over the country, the pavilion has discovered a bare cupboard for kitchenware and are seeking donations of old cups and plates that can be used for the games and to be kept in the pavilion for future events. “Anybody that has got spare ones that want to get rid of them, we’ll gladly take them and we’ll keep them in the pavilion,” says Nelson-based president of New Zealand Children’s Athletics Association, Jan Cockeram. “It’ll help out cricket as well, they’ll just be in the kitchen. You know

when people say ‘oh what do we have these old cups for?’ Well that’s what we are after.” Jan says she doesn’t mind if they have chips in them, as long as they are a plate, she will take them. “They are 60c a day to hire them. I couldn’t believe it.” The Saxton Oval pavilion is jointly funded by both councils and was opened last month. You can call Jan at the Richmond Dental Centre, or at home on 544 4704. The Colgate Games features athletes between ages 7 and 14. Nelson officials, which have often doubled as parents of the athletes, will use the competition as a chance to learn more skills and knowledge. President of the New Zealand Children’s Athletics Association Jan Cockeram says Saxton Oval pavilion is in need of plate and cup donations as they prepare to host 2000 people for the South Island Colgate Games in January.

Burning desire leads Robbie to fire service Phillip Rollo

Richmond Fire Service recruit Robbie Reihana is loving life in his new job. Afterall, it’s all he’s ever wanted to do. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

Peering over the window sill as a child and watching the fire engines race past, Robbie Reihana always knew he was going to be a fire fighter. With only some final paperwork left, Robbie, 22, is nearly qualified to be a volunteer, but he has already had his fair share of action. In fact, his first fire was one of his biggest jobs he’s had to tackle so far when a house near McDonald’s Richmond became engulfed. “That was probably my first good fire. I was really nervous,” he says. He admitted that his mind went blank as soon as the siren rung. “I was actually here doing checks on trucks and the siren went off, I looked out the window and seen some ash go past. Everyone arrived and ripped into it.” That exact moment was why Robbie signed up to be a volunteer fire fighter, for the adrenaline rush and to save lives. “I was amazed to see the fire at the start because it was the first good fire I had seen.” The dangers of the job are always playing on the back of his mind, but saving someone’s life is a much bigger draw card. “Knowing when it’s safe and when it’s not is just part of the learning curve.”

Originally from Brightwater, Robbie says he “grew up hearing the fire siren go off ” and would look out waiting for the fire trucks to go past. He moved to Richmond and eventually joined in December of last year. Now that he lives down the road from the Richmond Volunteer Fire Station, he’s usually the first there in case of emergency. The recruit course gave him basic training to become a fire fighter, from running out hoses, first aid, risk management, breathing apparatus and much more. The course was completed at the Nelson Fire Station, while all his on-work training was done in Richmond. The current recruit training course is of 12 weeks duration comprising both theory and practical training. Regular theory and practical assessments are conducted during the course to ensure that trainees are meeting the required competency levels at the various stages of the course. Once Robbie is qualified, he will be able to move up the ladder in command from qualified fire fighter to senior fire fighter. He says the majority of the call-outs so far have been scrub fires, but he will be ready in case of another big disaster.

Rain a blessing for local farmers FROM PAGE 1

Market gardener John Ewers says he is “very happy” not to be faced with water restrictions in what has been the best growing season for a number of years. “There seems to be an abundance of produce around.” John put it straight down to the rain. “We started to get a wee bit dry and some bad winds, but since then it has been relatively warm and moist, so that’s good. Obviously rain means there will be more production.” While he says the growing season has been particularly good, he says it probably isn’t the “best

ever.” He says the rain may yet take its toll on some crops. “If we get a lot of rain this week, it could possibly go against it and that would be worse than having none at all.” Acting TDC chief executive Dennis Bush-King says the river flow is in a good position for this time of the year. Only in the past four years has water restrictions come in before Christmas. Although, as the heat intensifies and irrigation increases, he expects the rivers to drop. But while things can change, the amount of consistent rain means it will be a lengthier process to dry up, he says.

Shop ‘n’ Win ‘biggest ever’ Shop ‘n’ Win 2011 has now officially reached the largest amount of entries in any competition we have run. According to Waimea Weekly publisher Steve Page it will hit 50,000 by weeks end. “Our last record was 40,000 so it goes to show just how well read the Waimea Weekly is and how well our advertisers promote and get into the spirit when it comes to a successful Christmas promotion like this,” he says. While there is still time to enter, entries do close end of next week and then we will draw a lucky winner. The competition simplicity is one of its best selling points with any customer that visits any of the participating shops, able to enter. For a list of shops involved see page 15. Lynley Tainui of Westmeat says the response has easily been the biggest since its inception.

Students dog it out at pet day The saying “every man and his dog” might need changed to every kid and their dog, following the Waimea Intermediate School pet day. Students were encouraged to bring their pets along to school for a number of challenging activties and, of course, a bit of fun. Activities included dog agility and obedience courses, which was difficult for one British bulldog in particular. His legs weren’t quite big enough to jump onto beams and through hoops. But there were also fun games for those without pets. There was a strong man competition on the field, seeing which students could push a car the furtherest. A gumboot toss kept some of the other kids busy.

Scholarship a real fillip for Peasants star

Andrew McGlashen hands a $1000 scholarship to The Peasants’ Abbey Phillips. Photo: Phillip Rollo.


SHINING ON CAROLS EVENT: St Barnabas Church will be rocking to the sounds of the 2011 Smokefreerockquest winners The Peasants on Friday night, part of an expanded annual Carols on the Lawn event called Shine. The concert will be held on the front lawn of St Barnabas Church. As well as music, there is plenty of kids enter-

Abbey Phillips has had plenty to sing about recently. The Peasants’ backing vocalist and keyboarder was the recipient of the McGlashen Pharmacy scholarship for 2011. The Garin College student will get $1000, which she says will go towards vocal and piano tuition, something she’s never had despite her obvious talent. “I’ve always wanted to do piano lessons and singing lessons just to further my skills I guess. This way I can add more to the band,” says Abbey. Abbey says she can’t remember when she first started singing, but it’s always been a major part of her life thanks to her parent’s influence. “My parents are pretty musical. My dad is actually a music teacher so I’ve always been singing since quite a young age.” But it was only when she was singing in a church band, alongside her brother Chris

Phillips, and other members of the group, that they decided to form The Peasants of Eden and enter Smokefreerockquest. The Peasants of Eden finished second in New Zealand in 2010, and then went one better as the The Peasants, taking out the national title for 2011. Abbey says it has been a whirlwind year with a music video set to be filmed in January before their debut single Let It Go, which was recorded at York St Recording Studio, is released on the New Zealand market. “It’s pretty amazing when you sit down and think about it. Just to see how far we’ve come and how far we can go.” The Peasants will be playing at the 2012 New Years Countdown on Upper Trafalgar St, the Kaikoura Roots Festival and many other local concerts. “I suppose that’s where we have to start but we’re hoping to progress.”

Gr wing Things

With Robyn Hollis

Where has the year gone? I am sure this is the catch cry for so many of us, as this is the last column before Christmas. I thought I would talk a bit about roses this time as several neighbours have been asking questions regarding deadheading, feeding etc. The photo this week is of my bed of Margaret Merrill floribunda roses (with the odd Iceberg and Avalanche popped in as fillers). This was of course taken before the latest round of strong winds and rain got to them – always seems to happen just as they are at their blooming best! My advice on how to keep them looking good is quite simple… feed, water (not a problem lately!) mulch and spray. Also, when deadheading, don’t just snip off the dead flowers at the top. For hybrid tea roses cut back to the first set of 5 leaves and angle the cut as in pruning. For floribunda roses you can take out the oldest rose in

St Arnard’s Lakers our top team It was the best of the best, the top four teams from each of the Bowater Motor Group Top Team heats going head-to-head for the championship. But once again the might of St Arnard couldn’t be stopped. The Lakers, of St Arnard, won their second Top Team event after taking home the title in the inaugural event in 2009. Top Team is based on the television Top Town

concept and brings teams from all over the region out for a fun event with plenty of challenging events. Organiser Hayden Bryant, of Sport Tasman, says he is thrilled with the event this year with numbers up on previous years and all the teams reporting plenty of fun.

Lighting up Christmas in Brightwater Phillip Rollo It may take 36,000 LED lights to do so, but Bob Peters has a Christmas brighter than most. The Brightwater resident has decked his River Terrace Rd home for the past 11 years, but hopes his latest decoration will

help him win his second Harcourts Light Up Nelson title, his last coming in 2004. Bob has also won the runner-up prize and was voted most impressed last year. Bob became obsessed with Christmas lights following a trip to the Unites States of America around December. He was stunned at the effort that everyone put

into decorating their homes with Christmas lights. “I brought a couple of crates back with me and it all built up from there. It eventually got a bit more sophisticated and it got a bit cheaper too,” he says. “It gave me the bug. All of the houses are done up. Not many are done up complete-

ly, but a lot have them here and there.” He noted the US had plenty of nativity scenes in their gardens. Every year Bob has added to his decoration, which took him six weeks, on and off, to put up. He says he has spent around $7000 on the lights.

Carols draw hundreds to gardens Gardens of the World was blooming with merriness as around 500 people came together to sing in the festive season and spread some Christmas spirit and cheer. The good people from the top of the South also made a gesture of good will to the people of Christchurch with all the proceeds from the event being gifted to the youth of Christchurch. Francis and Paddy Day, along with their team from Gardens of the World and Marsden House were on hand to make sure Carols was an enjoyable success. “We are very pleased we got such a beautiful day after last week’s disappointment,” says Francis, as the car parks were filling up. After a week’s postponement due to weather, there were adjustments in the entertainment line-up but all agreed it was Members of the Nelson Civic Choir sing to the Carols in the well worth the wait. “It’s such a beautiful setting. We got here Gardens crowd at Gardens of the World in Hope on Sunday. early and got the best spot in the whole gardens I think,” says Judy Ross of Richmond. Photo: Jonathan McKeown.

CHANGES TO THE COMMERCIAL TERMS FOR CONNECTION OF NEW LOADS TO NETWORK TASMAN’S DISTRIBUTION NETWORK Effective 1 January 2012 Network Tasman Limited has revised the commercial terms for connecting new loads to its distribution network. The revised policy focuses on the impact new loads have on the network, given their size and location. In general the policy seeks to recover the incremental costs associated with specific customer connection assets and network extensions from new loads while in most instances Network Tasman Limited will supply the transformer. Additionally in uneconomic zones of the network (mostly rural), customers with new loads will be required to make additional contributions towards current and future network augmentation expenditure in these areas so further growth in cross subsidies within the region is limited. The revised policy applies from 1 January 2012. A copy of the policy is available on

KEEP ON CALLING: The phone was running hot for BAM’s Ben Alder. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

BAM business booming Ben Alder’s phone didn’t stop ringing last week, thanks to an article in the Waimea Weekly. Ben, a Nayland College leaver, set up a labouring specialist business, along with Alex Davies, to help find their friend, Richmond’s Mitchell Ross, some summer work. The company picks up common everyday jobs for $10, and following an article in last week’s Waimea Weekly, Ben had received 25 jobs in just four days, making demand so high they are giving work to other school leavers in a similar predicament. Mitchell had applied for various jobs since leaving school, but says they were all after someone with experience, something no school leaver had. But Ben was thankful to the people in the community that have been able to find little jobs here and there for them and their friends.” “The paper really helped out. Everybody is talking about it. I’ve even been stopped on the street and stopped in shops from people that have recognised me,” says Ben. Ben, who works as a builder for Bruce Build and Design and is BAM’s administrator, says the majority of the jobs have been gardening and weeding, with a few car washes in the mix, but they were ready to tackle a summer full of work. Although he works full-time, the main target of the business was to find work for Mitchell who was struggling to find employment in Nelson.

Tap boy turns it on at nationals Phillip Rollo Chris Brake has leaped with New Zealand’s best to claim two bronze medals at the New Zealand Secondary School Athletics Championship in Wellington over the weekend. The 16 year-old Tapawera Area School student jumped a massive 1.94m to finish third on count back in the high jump, 13.75m in triple jump and finished in the top eight in long jump, even more impressive considering it was his first year in the senior grade. “I was over the moon with my two bronze medals,” says Chris. “To be honest my goals were just to get personal bests and anything more was just unexpected.” Chris started the weekend in Newtown with the triple jump, hoping, skipping and jumping out to 13.75m, a personal best by half a metre. The distance put Chris right in medal contention from the get-go, he spent the majority of the competition in second place. “It came out of nowhere. I was stunned that I actually got that far. I wasn’t expecting to get that much of a personal best.” Next on the schedule was Chris’ favoured event, high jump. He entered at 1.80m, his personal best from last season, which really shows how far he has developed in a year. He kept getting over the required height, even surpassing his personal best of 1.90m, until he hit a snag going for 1.97m. “I didn’t quite make it.” On count back from the 1.94m height,

Chris was handed the bronze medal. Jesse Bryant, who had also cleared the height, had done so on his third attempt, while Chris managed it on his second. Chris stands at 1.80m, meaning he is jumping a whopping 17cm over his own height. Following two outstanding medal winning jumps, Chris had high hopes in the long jump. With uncharacteristic humid Wellington weather creating problems for tired bodies, Chris says he was up against it. He landed 6.26m in his first jump and didn’t better it throughout his next attempts. In previous years, Chris had also entered in the sprint events. But this year he was put off by the 11.3 second qualifying standard. Chris says plenty of core work has been the major difference for 2011, but is expecting to come back even better in 2012 and 2013. “I wasn’t really thinking about it at the time, but afterwards I realized that I still have two years at this. I might be able to get the record in the high jump. I’ve gone up 10cm each year, so I might be close to it.” He wants to build more overall body strength before club nationals. In other results, Wakefield’s Mike Lowe claimed silver in the Senior Boys 3000m, Garin College student Jeff Lautenslager got second in the junior boys 3000m, while New Zealand age group record holder Brendon Barnett injured his hamstring in a run-through prior to the long jump, and another Waimea College hopeful, Tom Stringer, pulled out of the 1500m after limping the first two laps with a reoccurrence of a foot injury.

Choose Richmond Glass to double glaze your existing windows Retro-fit double glazing lets you enjoy the warmth and comfort of your existing home by replacing your single glass with the latest ThermaTech double glazing. Richmond Glass has been carrying out this straightforward process in many different kinds of homes, mainly around the Top of the South Island but also as far south as Arthurs Pass, for several years, giving homeowners warm results while also lowering their energy costs. Whether you have timber or aluminium framed windows, Richmond Glass has a double glazing solution to suit your needs. If you have aluminium-framed windows, a retro-fit could not be more simple. Richmond Glass replaces the existing exterior glazing beads with the manufacturer’s double glazing beads. Where that’s not possible, Richmond Glass uses its own multi-fit double glazing retaining beads, and where necessary, its new opening sashes. The new beads are powder coated or anodised to closely match the colour of your existing window frames. If you have timber-framed win-

dows, Richmond Glass uses the patented ‘Retro Fit NZ’ drainage adaptor energy saving system which allows all existing timber windows to be retained. With a retro-fit you have the best of both worlds; your home is virtually unchanged plus you gain all the benefits of double glazing. The work is quick and unobtrusive. Richmond Glass experts will measure your windows, the new units will be made locally in Nelson and a date set for your double glazing to be installed. Richmond Glass advises you every step of

the way. One of the company’s home improvement representatives will call on you and outline your options. A quotation is supplied without cost or obligation. Richmond Glass also checks that the task can be done within the building’s structure and that all technical specs and measurements are correct. Dealing with Richmond Glass you know that your home is entrusted to a leader in the glazing industry in New Zealand. Whatever the size or shape of your windows, Richmond Glass will handle it.

How does double glazing work

The two sheets of glass are line bonded by computer control to precisetolerances with a special dual seal around an aluminium spacer. Individual windows up to 3.15 by 2.4 metres can be produced.

mer months, ensuring improved warmth and cooling in your home and also reducing energy costs by significant amounts.

Planitherm total low E glass for maximum effect Planitherm Total Low E Glass is a high performance Low E coated glass, made of clear float glass on which a thin, transparent coating has been deposited by magnetron technology. This coating drastically reduces the heat transfer between inside and outside. Planitherm Total Low E Glass thermally performs approximately 10 percent better than standard

hard coat Low E glass commonly used in New Zealand. On top of this it does not suffer from the haze effect of standard hard coat Low E. The finished product has a near crystal clear appearance that will not interfere with your views.

Stay warm without condensation As a building’s interior is warmed, there is an increased prospect of condensation, mould and mildew. Condensation forms when warm air containing moisture meets a cold window surface. If the conditions are right “dew point” is

reached and condensation forms. As the inner pane of ThermaTech glazing remains substantially warmer than single glazing, condensation is dramatically reduced. Nothing can completely eliminate condensation but ThermaTech double glazing comes close. In many cases moisture problems disappear forever, while in other situations just a small amount of condensation forms at the bottom of a window or frame. This is caused by factors such as ventilation rather than glazing. If you’re building new or have an existing home that needs warming then call Richmond Glass.

Richmond Glass uses ThermaTech double glazing which consists of two or more panes of glass separated by an aluminium spacer, bonded together to form a completely sealed unit called an Insulating Glass Unit or IGU. Heat and cold pass through single glass, whereas ThermaTech units trap a layer of air or Argon gas between two panes, creating a kind of blanket that protects the warmth of your interior. This reduces heat transfer from inside to outside during winter and outside to inside in the sum-

There are not many people that can hit a golf ball further than Nathan Smith. In fact, there’s only three. The Greenacres Golf Club golfer finished fourth place at the 2011 REMAX Long Drive Championship of New Zealand, held at the The Clearwater Resort Driving Range during the three-day BMW New Zealand Open. After breezing through the qualification rounds, Nathan’s 295m distance out-blasted Auckland’s Marco Deen’s 240m effort in the quarter final, to book himself a spot in the semi-final. “I just wanted to qualify just to see how I would go in my first year in the professional level, so to qualify in the top eight was just amazing,” says Nathan. In the semi-final Nathan was hitting the ball out to 320m, but was unable to keep it on the grid. Eventual winner Cameron Grant landed 250m, but it was enough to see him through to the final at Nathan’s expense. “When you’ve got television cameras there and 50, 60 people watching you hit a ball, it’s a pretty nerve wracking.” Nathan picked up the long drive sport because he noticed a continued gain in his drive, playing regular golf. “I was over in Canada and got training with a guy who hit the ball a long way and he kind of wanted a driving partner for gage but I was kind of keeping up with him.” Following a return from Canada, Nathan was

ready to give it a good crack, until he popped three discs in his lower back, laying him off for around six months. Nathan always had a passion for long drive, because as he puts it: “Who doesn’t want to hit the ball and just smash it. It’s a good buzz.” But post-injury, the powerhouse form of the sport was put on the backburner. Until some sponsors came calling. Mal Lowrie of Accessman and Peter Havill of NBS both encouraged Nathan to get back into the sport and stumped up some much needed funds to help him carry on his dream. Nathan hit the gym in April, under the guidance of Marcus Rose, and had his mind solely focussed on the REMAX Long Drive Championship of New Zealand. A solid team built around Nathan, including Craig Vercoe and Jonti Phillipson of Sharpies Nelson and Sharpies Blenheim. Craig did repair work on all his clubs while Jonti acted as a mentor. But Nathan admits it was the physiotherapist and biomechanic technician Andy Cornelius, along with professional golfer Alistair Palmer, that had a revolutionary impact. “When I first started I had a swing speed of around 126mph and after I finished with them I got up to 137mph. At the end of the day when you are doing long drive, that’s what counts. You can have all the equipment in the world and all the training but you gotta hit that ball hard and fast.” Nathan’s personal best is 340m, and he hopes to hit that consistently next year.

The other not to be missed meeting is the ENZED New Zealand Super Saloon Championships being run from Thursday January 12 till Saturday January 14.

They run predominately V8 engines, have full fibreglass bodies resembling road cars such as corvettes and camaros, falcons and monaros and reach speeds of about 85km/hr around the tight 354metre track. Just the speed and sheer size of the cars adds an element of excitement that is totally different from any other class currently racing here in Nelson.

Qualifying on Friday evening is expected to be hard fought with approximately 35-40 cars trying to make it through to the 20 car finals on Saturday.

Captain Panzer heading to final Phillip Rollo If Canterbury United wins the ASB Youth League final this weekend, Erik Panzer will be the first person to hold aloft the trophy. The Garin College leaver will lead Canterbury United against Waitakere United in Auckland on Saturday, following a 9-8 win on penalties against Auckland City in the semi-final. Erik scored one of the penalties and was the center of a controversial penalty decision in regular time. The referee deemed he was fouled in the box during a corner kick, resulting in a 3-all equaliser. The finals berth comes eight weeks after a shock 0-2 opening round loss to YoungHeart Manawatu, Erik says the team has come on

leaps and bounds in the space of two months. “We’ve been playing a lot more as a team now instead of being so individualised,” he says. Erik has only been able to spend brief stints down in Christchurch training with the team, due to school, but he still makes his voice heard on the pitch. This will be the first time the team faces Waitakere this season, but it is the fourth time in five years that the two sides have met in the ASB Youth League final. Erik says finals football is a different kettle of fish to a regular league fixture, and that could play in Canterbury’s favour away from home. “Whatever happens on the day happens. I’m sure our team will be absolutely pumped for it. We know what we need to do to win.”

Rabbits squad gathers pace The latest Tasman Rugby League franchise has based itself in Richmond and it’s on the lookout for some local blood to join the Rabbit hunt. The Richmond Rabbits have already had three pre-season trainings, the latest on Monday night at Ben Cooper Park, and despite already building the foundation of a core group of players, chairman Ryan Charles is putting the call out for some Richmond residents to give the team a more local feel. “We’ve always had a group of about 13, 14. But we want a squad of around 20. This is a Richmond-based club so we’re really hoping to see some local guys turn up in the next few weeks,” says Ryan. Ryan says a team culture has quickly been established. “We’re trying to build a club of guys that enjoy playing but also enjoy the social aspect. We want it to be a real family culture.” RABBIT RUN: Yane Teinakore runs a play at the Richmond Rabbits training A large rugby contingent has now been able to play their preferred code, thanks to the TRL. at Ben Cooper Park on Monday night. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

The club has been boosted this week by the addition of Nelson based supplement store, Powerhouse Supplements, as a sponsor for 2012. Ryan says the TRL was in a good position and is clearly increasing in popularity, exposure and skill. “TRL have had a really successful year. Now these guys have a pathway with the [Tasman] Titans, that is a bit of a carrot. I’m hoping half of this team will be playing for the Titans at the end of the year.” The side is looking to be based at Ben Cooper Park or alternatively at the Avery. The rest of 2011 will be spent continuing skills trainings, establishing positions and teaching some of the players the basic skills of rugby league. Anyone interested in joining the team can visit the Richmond Rabbits Rugby League Club Facebook page or you can contact Ryan on 021 0264 6592

Top of the table Tigers to tackle two-day final Anything more than a loss will guarantee Waimea Toi Toi United victory in this weekend’s Car Company two-day final. But don’t tell WTTU skipper Jon Routhan to play for a draw, he wants his side to go out there and smash Motueka. Robbie’s Bar & Bistro WTTU lost to Hot Mama’s Motueka over the weekend, but only needing to take innings to cement top spot, Jon says it was job done and dusted quite early on in the piece. “To be honest our job was done by lunch time. The boys bowled together really well,” he says. With Stephen Binnie on form with the bat, Jon is confident the side has the right mix to win the final. WTTU have often been the second qualifier going into the two-day final. The ruling states that the top qualifier takes the title if the match is drawn or if rain ends play short, but Jon wants to go out there and win. If he wins the toss this Saturday, he expects to bat first on a slow Saxton Oval wicket.

Legend back on the diamond The United Titans hadn’t won a game in two years – cue three time world champion and Black Sox pitching legend Marty Grant. Now the Senior Men’s softball side are on a three-game winning streak. Marty retired from international competition in 2009 but kept his hand in New Zealand softball through coaching and mentoring. This year he dusted off the glove to play in the Nelson competition with his brother for the first time since their days at Waimea College 30 years ago. “I came to this team just wanting to be a part of it, the guys accepted me and without expecting too much, we’ve been able to learn and have some fun,” says Marty. Marty’s career with the Black Sox was exceptional; at the world championship 2000 in South Africa he pitched a nohitter in the final to win a second world title. But the humble champion, widely

regarded as one the best pitchers we have produced, says he started out as a pretty average athlete. “It’s interesting because I was just an average athlete, but I trained a lot harder than anyone. So there are a whole bunch of kids out there that have a chance to play for New Zealand if they are willing to put the work in,” he says. Marty believes he has a responsibility to the players of the future to stay involved with softball and be enthusiastic, and he hopes some of that will rub off on the current crop of players coming through the game. “I’ve had some of the best coaches in the world help me and I’ve got to be able to pass that on, it would be unfair not to.” At the start of the month Marty was in Christchurch at the South Island’s Jefferies Cup scouting for players to fill slots in the Southern Pride representative side he coaches.

Submissions Open on Draft Joint Waste Management and Minimisation Plan

Tasman District Council – Valuation Rolls

The Draft Joint Waste Management and Minimisation Plan is now available for public consultation. Everyone is welcome to make a submission. Purpose The Nelson City Council and the Tasman District Council (the Councils) have a statutory responsibility to “promote effective and efficient waste minimisation” and, for this purpose, to “adopt a waste management and minimisation plan”. As required by the Waste Minimisation Act 2008 (WMA), the Councils carried out a waste assessment. The Councils each made a decision that a Joint Waste Management Plan be developed. View the Proposals The proposals are contained in two documents: • A summary of Information - published on this website and circulated to all households in the Tasman District via Newsline and in Nelson City via Live Nelson. • The full document, which outlines in greater detail the draft plan the Councils have developed. Draft Joint Waste Management and Minimisation Plan The above documents are also available for viewing during normal office hours at the following Tasman District Council and Nelson City Council offices and Libraries: Tasman District Council • Richmond Office, 189 Queen Street, Richmond • Motueka Office, 7 Hickmott Place, Motueka • Takaka Office, 78 Commercial Street, Takaka • Murchison Office, 92 Fairfax Street, Murchison • Richmond Library, 280 Queen Street, Richmond • Motueka Library, Pah Street, Motueka • Takaka Memorial Library, Junction Street, Takaka • Murchison Library, 92 Fairfax Street, Murchison Nelson City Council • Nelson City Council, 110 Trafalgar Street, Nelson • Elma Turner Library, 27 Halifax Street, Nelson • Nightingale Library Memorial, 2 Beach Road, Tahunanui • Stoke Library, Neale Avenue, Stoke

Local people with local knowledge Founded in 1996 by the McKeown family, Trends Kitchens takes pride in bringing quality kitchens and joinery to South Island homes. Unlike franchise owned companies with a limited product range, Trends Kitchens can provide you a custom made kitchen produced by our own certified tradesmen, in our own factory. As the demand for this style of designer kitchen service spread around the South Island, so have Trends Kitchens showrooms and branches. Not long after we opened a branch in Nelson, we found people were coming all the way from Blenheim to see us. We were happy to create a site to accommodate our Blenheim clients, and our Renwick showroom was born. Today, you can walk into a Trends Kitchens showroom in Nelson, Blenheim, Cromwell or Christchurch, and meet with a local designer who can offer you a free measure and quote for the perfect kitchen to accompany your new home or renovation.

When you confirm your purchase with Trends Kitchens, you’re eligible for a no obligation interior design consultation from the team at ColourPlus, to compliment your new kitchen. Ask our friendly staff for details.
