Fatal corner to be roundabout Phillip Rollo

A fatal intersection on the Moutere Highway will be turned into a roundabout next year, pleasing a neighbouring resident that petitioned to get it altered 18 months ago. The intersection on Russ’s corner has been labelled “confusing” by Redwood Valley resident David Vanstone – the man that managed to find 264 signatures for his petition after witnessing five accidents during the past eight years. David started the petition after he drove

past the corner at the same time that it was being visited by relatives of Richard Nicholas MacKay, a Foxhill resident who died as a result of injuries suffered in a car accident on the corner last May. Tasman District Council communications manager Chris Choat says it was labelled as a black spot and will be worked on simultaneously with other roading projects in the region. “We’ve got to make some minor alterations to the initial design but at this stage it’s all looking very positive.” David uses the corner when he is travel-

ling to Brightwater via Waimea West. He says there is confusion as to who should give way. “You’re sitting out on the middle of the road with cars coming behind you. Most people indicate David right even though you’re Vanstone. going straight ahead,” he says. “There’s a 35km/h turn on a main highway, it doesn’t make sense.”

David’s opinion was that the corner should become a “Y intersection” because it would be cheaper than a roundabout but he was happy that council listened to the public’s concerns after it was originally sitting at number 11 on a priority list. “Six months ago it had been brought up to number five in the Tasman region. I have to commend councillor Trevor Norriss and his team for prioritising this project,” he says. Construction will begin before the end of the year.

Horses and ponies take centre stage

Close to 70 of the region’s finest ponies and horses took centre stage on Sunday for the Nelson Horse & Pony Breeders’ Association Spring Show. The show is one of three major competitions held by the club each year. This particular event was held at Richmond Park. Club secretary Amber Johnson says the judges looked at how well the rider can handle their horse in the ring. “It’s a combination of how well the horse is walking as well but it is more towards the rider.” The spring show also debuted the starter class for an inexperienced horse, pony or beginner rider in their first show season. Amber says it is a great way to build confidence and gives the young riders some experience. wheelchairs mobility scooters walker/canes electric beds ands hoists lift assist chairs bathroom solutions incontinence products daily living aids/products

Rates remission policy still likely A rates remission policy could still prevent some Richmond West residents from paying skyrocketing rates after their land was rezoned to mixed business. Headingly Lane residents affected by the land rezoning met with Tasman District mayor Richard Kempthorne, other representatives from the Tasman District Council and Quotable Value on Thursday to discuss the options available. And it appears the residents’ first choice of a rates remission policy is not dead in the water, despite council recommending a rates postponement policy. “It is

very easy to get into a standoff with the residents saying they only want remission,” says Richard. “The conclusion is lets look at both options and see what we can come up with.” The TDC looked at a remissions policy just a few months ago but decided not to pursue that option as it was not fair to other ratepayers. But it has now backtracked and will look at the policy again. Richard says the meeting enabled Quotable Value to answer questions on how the valuation process worked and the next steps would be discussed at a full council meeting this week.

Police to search cars for valuables Andrew Board

A spike in robbery from cars has forced police to walk the streets and check car doors, knocking on the homes of owners who haven’t locked their vehicles. Over the past month Nelson Police have seen a rise in the number of robberies from vehicles, including in Richmond. But senior sergeant John Price says the majority of those vehicles burgled were unlocked. “People seem to think they can leave their cars unlocked and they will be fine, unfor-

though, some were not happy with the idea. “Do I have the right to not lock my car door?” wrote Facebook user Richid Whiting. Another, Regan Woodford, posted: “What a waste of time. Why not do something productive with their time instead of worrying about people not locking doors. Idiotic management.” Many of the comments were supportive of police efforts though with Richard Pollard responding to Richid’s post: “Sure you have Richid, just like you have the right

not to call the cops when it gets nicked. Or claim on insurance.” John says the idea will be beneficial if it gets people to lock their cars more often and rejected any notion that it was a waste of police time. “It’s about prevention, not attending crime. We are much better to spend our time trying to reduce opportunities for crime, that’s a lot more productive. The simple message is people need to care for their property, they shouldn’t leave anything of value in their vehicles and they should lock them.”

Car thrown rubbish is the worst

The Tasman Bay Big Beach Clean-Up is being held next month and organisers says most rubbish comes from cars.

Rubbish thrown from cars around Nelson has made up the majority of trash found on our shoreline during the past two Big Beach Clean Up’s and organisers don’t expect that to change this year. The Tasman Bay Big Beach Cleanup is to be held on November 10 and organisers are looking for more community groups to claim a stretch of shoreline in Nelson or Tasman and clean it up. The first clean-up netted more than 10 tonnes, with more than six tonnes collected last year by hundreds of volunteers over the 295

kilometres of shore from Cable Bay to Golden Bay. Coordinator for the clean-up, Janice Gravett from the Department of Conservation, says the most affected areas are in the inner haven near Atawhai, the Nelson marina and other coastline near roads. She says plastic bottles and other rubbish make up the lion’s share of litter. The clean-up – a joint intuitive between DOC, Nelson City Council, Tasman District Council and Nelmac – is primarily to protect sea life that may become tangled in plastic

or eat something they shouldn’t. A secondary benefit, says Janice, is making the region the country’s cleanest shoreline as no other region does a similar clean-up. Janice says the call is now going out for community groups to sign up to clean one of 50 sections of beaches. Around half those coastal sections have already been taken up by groups who took part in previous beach clean-ups. Groups can find out more about the beach clean-up and register to take part on the DOC website www.doc.

SECOND ENTRANCE TO OPEN: Motorists driving north will have easier access to Saxton Field in two week’s time when a second entrance is officially completed. The new entrance will allow better traffic flow into, through and out of Saxton Field. At peak times on a Saturday, Saxton Field can become an extremely busy facility. By opening another entrance, it is hoped all users will benefit during those busy periods. The cost of the new entrance is $850,000 and is joint funding by both councils.

The team, which won the grade the previous year, included Brittany Stewart, Jess Martin, Claire Erasmus, Sami Jordan and Michelle Schurmann. They finished the 39.49km course in a time of three hours, one minute and 41 seconds. BUILDING LEVY MEETING: Tasman District Council will discuss the future of the Building Consent Levies at a full council meeting on Thursday. The change to the levies was first reported by Waimea Weekly and has raised concerns by the building and real estate industry labelling the changes as “unfair”.

Police on dope hunt Top jazz band returns Police across Tasman District are targeting cannabis growing and need the public’s help. Detective Sergeant Brett Greer says police were out gathering intelligence on growers and had already stymied one grower’s plans in Marlborough. Brett says police were asking rural property owners and those who were out tramping, hunting or fishing to keep an eye out and report any suspicious activity. “We know the growers are now heading out to get their crops established so we’re asking for the public to assist by letting us know if they see anything. “If there are vehicles parked in remote locations, or you see people heading out with garden imple-

ments, take down the details and let us know. Brett says a lot of the police success in tracking drug growers stemmed from information coming from members of the community. “People who live in rural areas know who should be hanging around and who looks a bit out of place. We know from past experience that the types of people out putting in cannabis plots will have no qualms taking a sift through your farm sheds as well. “You don’t want your neighbourhood to be the preferred growing location, so don’t make it easy for these people.” People with information can contact the police on 546 3840.

TDC office blessed

Sinead Ogilvie

The upgraded Tasman District Council building was unveiled on Thursday morning, with a blessing from council kaumatua Archdeacon Andy Joseph. TDC staff gathered with mayor Richard Kempthorne to witness the blessing and walk through their new premises. The new building is part of a $2.75 million plan to renovate the Richmond offices, and means council staff can all be under one roof and continue plans to renovate the rest of the building up to earthquake standard. The development was about having a proper place for the council to serve the public says Richard, with

employees that have been working offsite now able to be in the building. Richard says they will now get on with earthquake proofing the older parts which has been an issue for council. An overhaul and improvement of the entrance area is now underway and will be well received by staff and the public says customer service manager Suzanne Westley. “It’s friendlier, more open and will provide a bright and cheerful welcome.” Property development manager Jim Frater says the building plans “are on track with the budget” and they hope to see the rest of the work completed by Christmas.

your questions

Here are some tips for a successful boarding agreement:  Get your landlords approval  Check out your boarders references to ensure they will be safe with your children  Work out a reasonable rate for room, power, water, internet, phone and food. I suggest between $160 and $220 per week  Write up an agreement between you and your boarder. Check the tenancy tribunal website: for a copy of a flat/house sharing agreement. Include cost of board, frequency of payment (weekly or fortnightly), bond required, what they will get for their money  Take a bond of at least two week’s board and deposit it with the Tenancy Tribunal We offer free, confidential advice for everyone.

Bridget Budget answers Q: My friend suggested I get a boarder, because I am struggling to pay my rent and bills as a single parent. Is it a good idea or will it cost me more? A: If you have a room available, a boarder can better your financial situation, because they will share the costs of rental, power, food, phone and water. You can have two boarders paying less than $247 per week each, without their income affecting your benefit, tax or family assistance.

Car Company raise money for refuge

From My Desk The school holidays have been fantastic at Fashion Island but now we return to normal and look forward to Christmas which will be here in just 10 weeks! In the heart of Fashion Island you will find Columbus Café, owned by Trudi and Ian Brassfield. I feel very lucky to have Columbus at Fashion Island. And it’s even better in the summer months, like a big summer house with its doors and windows open as there is the choice to sit indoors or outside and soak up the sun. Columbus has a wonderful selection of savoury and sweet options like paninis, wraps, quiches, pastries, cakes and slices enticing you from the glass display unit or choose from the menu for the kitchen to prepare. What a perfect way to relax and unwind after a shop at Fashion Island. At Columbus Café, they ensure that the coffees are always freshly roasted, freshly ground and freshly brewed, and you can ensure that you will be served by experienced, friendly and knowledgeable staff who enjoy sharing the enjoyment of great coffee and food in a relaxing environment. So have a fantastic week, and I look forward to seeing you at our Fashion Island.

Hey, thanks for reading

Staff from the Car Company were joined by two Makos and volunteers from Nelson Women’s and Children’s Refuge last week in raising more than $1000 for the non-profit organisation and tomorrow they will be in Richmond. During the month of October the Car Company is doing everything it can to raise money and profile for the women’s refuge and the work it does in the Nelson community. That pledge went to the streets last week as staff rounded up a couple of Tasman Makos and took to the streets with buckets. Organiser Tracey Black says she was “astounded” with the response. “The people of Nelson just blew me away. I couldn’t believe how giving they were. One lady said to me that she’d gladly donate because she wished the women’s refuge had been around for her mum.” The Car Company has also organised a quiz night, other street collections

including on Queen St this Thursday. They are also giving $50 from each car they sell in the month to the women’s refuge, an expected $5000 in total. It has also roped in other companies to join in with the Money Company and Protecta insurance each chipping in $20 each for each car insurance sold through the Car Company during the month. Tracey says the Car Company is known

Tasman Makos Vernon Fredericks, left, and Bryce Heem with Italy. All joined the Car Company staff to raise money for Nelson Women’s Refuge on the streets of Nelson last week. for its support of sport but wanted to show it does much more in the community than just sport sponsorship.“We are passionate about sport but for a long time Shane [Drummond, Car Company owner] has also supported all of these other groups and doesn’t really tell any-

one about it. So we wanted to work with one organisation and really make a difference for them. The women’s refuge operates on a shoestring budget and being ex-police I’ve seen first-hand what they do and I really think, sadly, it’s an organisation that works with so many in our community and in every suburb pretty much.” She says Vernon Fredericks and Bryce Heem from the Tasman Makos were fantastic and even went into shops to seek donations. “We were blown away by how great they were, we even had shop managers tell us that.” Trudie Brand from the Nelson Women’s and Children’s Refuge Service says the support from the Car Company is fantastic. “I was pretty gobsmacked actually when I heard the total raised. It is awesome that people were so generous and that the Car Company has got behind us.”

Readers push for Weekly puzzles This week we’ve launched a new feature to our newspaper – puzzles. In the past few years we at the Waimea Weekly have fielded dozens of requests for a crossword and sudoku and while we’re far too busy for such fun we’ve yielded to reader demand and included a new puzzle section (on page 26). We understand that most of you like to take your time reading Waimea Weekly and that you see the time reading us as quality time. So we think the addition of a crossword and sudoku will enhance that experience.

We would also like your feedback on our puzzles. Do you like them, would you prefer another puzzle and what you would change? Adding these puzzles to your local newspaper is about reacting to reader demand so we want to make sure you actually like them. Don’t blame us if you can’t finish them though. It is intended that there will be a quick crossword each week and sudokus will rotate from easy, medium and hard every three weeks. Any feedback would be appreciated and can be sent to Thanks, good luck and have fun. - Editor.

Coupland’s moves to Queen St Coupland’s Bakeries has relocated into the heart of Richmond and store manager Jolene Preston says the decision to move is already paying off. Coupland’s had been based at its previous site off Salisbury Rd for around ten years, but Jolene admits it was more of a destination store and is confident that the new location almost behind the Police Station on Queen St is a smart move to continue the growth of the brand. “Before, people had to make a special trip to see us. Our new location on Queen St means that people can visit us easily without having to travel out of their way. With heaps of car parking too, it really is the best of both worlds in

terms of convenience for our customers. We do have a lot of loyal customers that will track us down no matter what and it’s great to see them still coming in, alongside new regulars coming in off Queen St to grab their lunch,” she says. The rise in lunch trade has also seen a boost in catering facilities, with savouries, sandwiches, cakes and other sweet treats a popular choice for work shouts and parties. “Even at late notice we can do catering and it’s great to see word getting around nearby offices about the range of tasty options we can provide.” The annual Christmas stock was also about to be released. Favourites such as tarts,

truffles and Christmas cakes will soon be available on the shelves alongside a great new range of gift tins and hampers. Jolene says the store remains true to its motto of being the “home of good baking”, but that Coupland’s now offer a huge range of delicious food, the variety of which often surprised people. With a delicious new 100 per cent Yum premium slice range recently released (in flavours like Zesty Citrus, Gooey Caramel and Dreamy Coconut)and a selection of freshly baked specialty breads also now available it’s clear that Coupland’s has been busy making sure they continue to exceed cus-

tomers’ expectations. “People come to us because our food tastes great, is fantastic value and staff go the extra mile to make sure our customers are well looked after.” The new building is situated in the old Flooring First/ First National Real Estatecomplex, with access from the Richmond Mall car park or off the street beside the police station.

Cooking on a budget Sinead Ogilvie

The daily grind of cooking on a budget doesn’t have to be a strain on you and your family says Karen Bidmead. Karen and her husband David will teach the Richmond community how to cook healthy and creative meals during a course that they say will open the eyes of families who struggle to put something on the table at night that pleases everyone, and comes in under budget. Karen says the idea behind the cooking classes comes from wanting to educate the wider community who may not have the knowledge to feed the family on a budget, and says the

course is really helpful to those who need educating on how to use fresh ingredients in an affordable way. The program is open to anyone from the community and those that attend will learn to cook cheap yet nutritious meals for their families out of the day to day contents of their pantry, and is so doable that Karen says they struggle to fit it all in during the short course. “We can show people so many options on how to cook meals at home for less.” Karen says participants of the

five week program will walk away feeling inspired to prepare fun and tasty meals for their families. “People are really surprised at what you can do, people don’t believe us when we say you can make these amazing meals and stay on a good budget.” The ‘Let’s get cooking’ classes will be held in the commercial kitchen at the Richmond Church of Christ and costs $5 a class. Cooking will begin on Mondays from 10.30am till 1pm beginning on the October 29.

Each week photos from the Nelson Provincial Museum’s “glass plate” collection will run in Nelson Weekly and Waimea Weekly.

Just a thought - Labour Day isn’t just another holiday For most people Labour Day is just another holiday, but how many of us are aware of the origin of Labour Day which was first officially celebrated in New Zealand in October 1900, following the early efforts in 1840 of Samuel Parnell to promote an ‘eight-hour working day.’ The slogan, ‘Eight hours work, eight hours recreation, eight hours rest’ was first coined in 1817 by social reformers during the Industrial Revolution in Britain when workers had to endure long hours and poor working conditions. New Zealand was in fact the first country in the world to adopt the eight-hour working day. The whole topic of work and employment

is hugely challenging and controversial as work as fun and despite the fact that he we face issues of work stress, worked eighteen hours a day he job opportunities, ‘starting out said: “I never did a day’s work wage’, increasing unemployin my life!” ment, job losses and redundanI have discovered that the key to finding true job satisfaction is cies. having a biblical understanding It is a sad fact that apart from those who can’t find work, of work. many feel imprisoned in work God himself establishes right that they hate, or work in jobs from the very beginning the that give no satisfaction or are principle of a healthy balance demanding and stressful.

T&T Richmond store manager Donna and her team would like to thank all of the people who have supported them during their relocation and say they look forward to seeing their customers in the new shop soon.

No.1 Newspaper

est men on earth concluded that without knowing God, life is meaningless, wealth doesn’t satisfy and work is futile! Jesus spoke often on the importance of using our talents, checking our motives as well as on how to find rest in times of difficulty and stress. He said: “Come to me all you who labour and are heavy-laden and I will give you rest.” In conclusion when you are using your gifts and strengths and when what you do is useful, then you will discover that work is no longer work, it is an antidote to boredom, it is enjoyable and is an expression of who you are. That’s something worth thinking about.

A letter of thanks A big thank you to Club Waimea, The New Zealand Historical Postcard Society Inc had a fantastic venue experience for their Annual Convention Weekend at Club Waimea on 6 and 7 October 2012. We cannot say enough about the support from the administration and management team at Club Waimea, from our tentative first inquiries to booking our event. Such professionalism, no details missed, nothing was a bother as we needed to keep in touch numerous times as situations developed or changed. Club Waimea were able to provide a cost effective, top class, centrally located venue with that all important plenty of

parking, which more than met all we could wish for. The extra bonus of a café/restaurant on site, was just supreme and the service from both was so enjoyable, and the awesome food was just the best. There was no bother for our evening buffet meal, where special dietary requirements were required for some of our members. We had not one complaint about any aspect of the weekend catering or the venue from any of those attending, now that does say it all! Congratulations also to the Club Waimea members who featured as part of this event: Kelvin Trower with “Life in a shoe box”, and Doug South with “Murchison and surrounding environs.”

My First Visit To Rainbow Ski Area ‘Weee’……. What a cracking experience skiing down a cold snowy slope, like sitting on a bicycle going down the road! Suddenly, when I reach the bottom, an icy blizzard like ‘thing’ rocketed into my face and blacked out my sense of vision. These same sort of things happened quite a few times on the snowy slopes of Rainbow Ski Field. This is my experience of heading to Rainbow Ski Area. Skiing on that day was so great because it was snowing, and the mountain air was chilly, while the sun was trying to shine brightly behind the clouds of evaporated water. I was so excited I couldn’t hold it in any long-

er. Just going constantly up and down, up and down on the beginners slope was fun. While I was there, running about, were a whole bunch of green and orange friendly keas. Eventually after five whole hours of fun skiing, we had to go home. We travelled off the mountain by two big shuttle buses. On the way back out of Rainbow we counted Fords (Fords are concrete slabs that you drive over to make it easier to cross a small river). We remembered that they were in this order on the way down: Woolshed, Rough, Chinaman, No Catchum and Merry. Going to Rainbow Ski Field was an awesome experience! I can’t wait to go again…..

WEDNESDAY 17 October 2012


Ready to play ball Phillip Rollo The Stoke Eagles will look to fly high at the NBS Labour Weekend Men’s Fastpitch Open while the competition’s only other home-town softball team will have different objectives as it looks to upset its neighbours in the opening fixture. The tournament kicks off on Friday evening with the Eagles and the United Titans set to clash in the first round robin game. The fastpitch tournament has been hosted by the Eagles for the past three years and draws a number of the country’s top clubs to Saxton Ballpark. There are expected to be around 15 current Black Sox playing over the four days. Nelson Softball chief executive Derryn French, who is also in the Eagles’ squad, says his youthful side should hold its own against teams featuring some New Zealand representatives. He was targeting five wins as a gauge of success. “We’ve got a very young side and I expect in some instances we will struggle while in others we should do pretty well,” he says. “A lot of it comes down to the pitching and how Brandon Peck, who is in from Vancouver, will go. If he steps up and starts to dominate then certainly we will be in the mix.” The Titans are a little more “unknown,” according to Derryn. “Part of their agenda will be the fact they are competing and they’re getting

amongst it.” Jeremy McIlroy and Giuseppe Lagrutta add some quality to the squad and if the team’s pitching can be consistent they should not be taken lightly. The all-Nelson clash is currently scheduled for 5:30pm on Friday night. The travelling teams will begin their campaigns on Saturday morning. Poneke Kilbernie will be one of the favourites to take the top honours, having been in the top four of the New Zealand club national championship in as many years. PK have five Black Sox in its roster. Parklands Christchurch United will have Regan Manly on the mound, strong hitter Gareth Cook and Daniel Milne – all three are part of the New Zealand set-up. Sunday night will also feature a home run derby where two players from each team will slog it out. That is scheduled for 5pm. Derryn is hoping to entice local softball fans to check out what is the top annual tournament to hit the town. “The calibre you’re going to see is definitely up there and it’s a pretty good tournament.” The final will be held on Monday at 2pm. Nelson Softball was also able to confirm that it would be hosting a Black Sox internal tour on November 14 and 15, prior to the world championship in Auckland in March.

Jeremy McIlroy and Brandon Peck will go head-to-head when the United Titans face the Stoke Eagles in the first match of the NBS Labour Weekend Men’s Fastpitch Open. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

Arthritis sufferer a gym junkie

In her 50s, after decades of smoking and with two hip replacements Robyn Scherer doesn’t have the kind of credentials you would expect for a gym junkie, but she reckons she doesn’t use a normal gym. The office worker says she was in trouble, her health was poor and mobility in between hip operations was tough going, but Robyn’s found her ticket to good health and says it comes in a piece of equipment that is only found in one other place in all of Australasia. TRX sounds like a spaceship or a dinosaur more than the jungle gym Robyn describes, but the mix of boxing and working the suspension system where you use your own body weight to do a range of exercises, and keeping a good diet, has worked wonders for her. “I’m relatively young to have both hips replaced but I had severe arthritis and I was given the opportunity to have the operations fairly quickly via the Public Health system. After the first operation, and then the sudden death of both my mother and father, I made the big decision to change my lifestyle and joined the gym. I also gave up smoking after the second hip operation – after 40 years of being a pack a day smoker.” Not only did she join the gym but Robyn took on a personal trainer, Jason Hulena. After three years working out with Jason, she says she is fitter, more mobile and healthier than she’s ever

Robyn Scherer says the “jungle gym” at Wairua Body Coaching Systems keeps her fit after two hip replacements. With her are the gym’s owners and trainers Jason Hulena and Greg Witika. Photo: Andrew Board. been. She is currently doing the Fat Attack Challenge at the Wairua Body Coaching Systems, which is a mix of boxing and working out on a TRX. Jason and his brother-in-law Greg set up Wairua about 8 months ago and they have just installed the Synrgy System. It’s one of only two of its kind in Australasia and Greg says he and Jason are excited about the equipment and the results they are getting. “We get people from all backgrounds, all shapes, all sizes and everyone can use it. It’s a great workout.” Robyn certainly agrees. “It’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I feel fitter than I ever have.”

Fishing with

Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club Unfortunately the weather for this last week or so has been typical for this time of year with a lot of wind and rain, but fortunately there have been a few fine opportunities to sneak out and land some fish. Boating will be somewhat hazardous with a lot of floating debris, so take extra care especially form partially submerged objects. Fishing in Tasman Bay was beginning to show some early snapper being caught but the subsequent rain and dirty water has cooled the water temperature and has delayed the arrival of good numbers of spring snapper. It would seem though that the carpet sharks don’t mind these conditions as one angler found out last week, with his setline producing an excellent hook up rate. Those who fish the Kenepuru this time of year will also find the snapper somewhat elusive, as the rather large seven gill sharks invade the sound in plague like numbers and cause havoc. Apparently over the last few days or so a fisher reported they only caught one snapper for lots of hours on the water, which possibly means that with all the fresh dirty water it may also be a few weeks before the Kenepuru starts to improve. The DBFC kayaking fraternity have also been enjoying some excellent fishing in Delaware Bay, landing some fine gurnard, small brim and kahawai. We have included some tips on where, when and how to target kahawai. The DBFC has several boat based trips coming up in the very near future. If you are thinking of joining the club, now is the time. These opportunities enable you to fish alongside and learn from very experienced club members. Be-

cause we keep in regular contact with each other during the day’s fishing, you will not be left wondering where the fish are biting and what the flavour of the day is. Between us we cover a lot of ground and we do find the fish. Areas: Can be caught almost anywhere around Nelson and Marlborough. Targeting: During October large schools can be found feeding on whitebait close to river mouths and along the Boulder Bank and inner harbour. Fish early morning or later

Jeff Holden with a 10 kilo plus snapper caught off Cable Bay in his kayak. in the day to produce best results but can be caught all day long. Surfcasting at Tahuna beach can produce some excellent fish. Equipment: Light spinning gear with small metal lures like a trout silver toby make ideal kahawai catchers. Find a work up and cast along the edges of it and retrieve the lure as fast as possible. Flasher rigs with small baits work well. Any red and green colours do well. Tips: Bleed your fish as soon as you catch it by cutting its throat and a cut across the tail works as well. Get it on the ice and smoke it when at home, enjoy.

Waimea riders win big at season opener There were no signs of winter cobwebs as a 70-strong group of local show jumpers took to Marchwood Park in Motueka with plenty of speed, style and accuracy on Sunday. Participation-wise, this was the largest opening competition in a number of years for the Nelson Area Show Jumping Group with numbers high in all 17 classes. Classes were spread between horses and ponies and then separated by the height of the obstacles. The best of the local registered riders were youngster Emily Hamer of Hope in the registered pony classes riding She’s Spot On and Moonwalker the Grey; Pamela Milliken of Brightwater largely dominated the show hunter classes on Z Final Straw and Viking SL, placing in each class she competed in; Danielle Guiver performed well and earned herself a second placing on My Sassy Cat in

the 115-120cm class; Lynley Wilson riding Zec Tac Indian Brave got second in the speed class and won her 110cm class and Helen Palmer of Tapawera placed in most classes riding a total of four horses. Nelson Area Show Jumping Ground spokesperson Linda Cotton, who also won two classes on Sunday, says she was stoked with the turnout, with competition running until 6pm to cater for the large amount of entries. “There are heaps of good riders in Nelson but yesterday they all came out of the woodwork,” she says. “Six o’clock is probably too long but we just had such good numbers.” The next local show jumping event will not be held until February 2 so riders will venture out of town for South Island competitions, while also being active at the Nelson A&P Show.
