A berry good start A mild winter, warm sunny spring and early summer have given berry growers around the Tasman district a perfect start to the season. “We are just starting but it’s looking really good,” Wai-West Horticulture operations general manger Alan Dobbie said last week. “The fruit is big and the brix (sugar levels) are high.” Wai-West grows 40 hectares of boysenberries on the Waimea Plains and Alan says they expect to be harvesting through until January 15.

Farm trespassers a ‘big worry’ Fear of retribution, shot stock and damaged property is an issue for rural landowners, who are being troubled by poachers and trespassers. While the message from police this summer is to report it, one local man feels there is nothing he can do to stop it. The Dovedale man, who did not want to be named, says that all of his neighbours wheelchairs mobility scooters walkers/canes electric bed/hoists lift assist chairs bathroom solutions incontinence products daily living aids/products

are aware of one particular man, who frequently trespasses on forestry land and crosses the boundary onto private property while pig hunting. He says while he hasn’t damaged anything yet, security was a “big worry” and the fact of the matter is he shouldn’t be hunting there in the first place. “There is forestry all around the boundary

Reporter to my property. Occasionally pig hunters and their dogs will end up on my property and they are usually all right. But this one particular guy, all the neighbours are

moaning about him. He comes at all hours of the day and we see him at least a few times a week. I’ve confronted him about it but he just says he can do what he likes.” Unfortunately, this is a problem that is getting worse every year says rural sergeant Rob Crawford.

“I don’t usually have presents for myself, we just buy for our children. But maybe an overseas holiday, that’d be awesome.”

Farm trespassers a ‘big worry’ A berry good start FROM PAGE 1 “It is very common, the rural sector is complaining about it all the time. Particularly at this time of year when there are a lot of hunters around.” He says while police are prosecuting at least a dozen people for unlawful hunting and trespass type offences annually, he’s amazed at just how often it is happening and going unreported. “People are seeing them, catching them on their property and we are not being told. We need people to stand up and say I’ve had enough of this and follow through. “It’s not just poaching either. These poachers cross people’s property, there is a lot of theft, gates are damaged, locks are cut. Forestry

owners and security also have issues.” Gavin O’Donnell, Federated Farmers provincial president says the fear of retribution is what’s keeping locals from coming forward and he thinks it’s brilliant that police are so approachable on the matter. “People feel exposed in a rural area, there is a natural reluctance to put their hand up and come forward. Farms aren’t easy things to lock up like a building and there is that fear there. But people should report it because they might not realise how important it is in the bigger picture.” Rory Cobb, technical manager for Action Forests Management says poaching and trespassing is “a pain in the backside for forest owners and for those who earn

their living in the forest, as they are for all those who make their living from the land. Access is frequently attempted by those wishing to hunt illegally or grow cannabis and poaching is particularly frustrating.” With poachers determined to go wherever they please, Rob says landowners are turning to security cameras to deter people from crossing the boundary. “Up Baton Valley near Motueka, locals got together and organised a security camera. That apprehended one person and word has got round. Since then there have been no issues.” Rob says local hunters who are poaching on private property will have their firearms licence revoked, as well as being charged.

FROM PAGE 1 Berrylands’ Peter and Steph Kristofski are also enjoying a flying start to the season which Peter says started about ten days earlier than usual. “We had a mild winter and spring temperatures were up so we kicked off really early,” Peter says. “We have had a bit of rain but it hasn’t been torrential so it hasn’t been a problem - it’s actually helped size the fruit nicely.” The good start to the season has also been good news for students around the district with Berrylands employing 30 to 50 casual staff to pick and pack the berries. “We always like to support and

look after the local students and give them jobs,” Steph says. Berrylands grows two hectares of boysenberries, one hectare of raspberries and 0.5 hectares of strawberries. “We export about half and sell the other half here at the shop,” Peter says. “It’s been really busy, as long as there’s sunshine people come in pick berries and buy icecreams.” However, both Alan and Peter say there is a long way to go before the season ends and they are hoping the sun keeps shining. “You can’t count your berries until they are in the box,” Alan says.

Trafalgar Centre closes, now what? A damning engineering report could spell the end for Nelson’s only major indoor events centre, but the city’s mayor is adamant if it does go it will be replaced. Nelson City Council announced on Friday that the Trafalgar Centre would close immediately after a report it commissioned stated the loss of life in the centre would be “high” if there was a moderate earthquake. Nelson mayor Rachel Reese says that left the council with little option but to close the centre. “The risk of loss of life is high. The only appropriate response to managing this risk is to close the centre to public use immediately.” Now the immediate focus for the community is: where to from here? A decision on the future of the centre, which was built in the early 1970s, and received a $7 million upgrade in 2009, will be made early next year with the council to discuss it as early as this Thursday at an urgent meeting. The options are to strengthen the centre at varying costs depending on the strength, or pulling it down and rebuilding a new centre at a new location. Rachel confirmed it would be

Nelson’s Trafalgar Centre is now closed due to a risk to human life in an earthquake. highly unlikely for a new centre to be built on the existing land if they made the call for the Trafalgar Centre to come down. That is because if it did come down part of the reason would be due to the land being more prone to liquefaction in the event of an earthquake. But she said there is still a long way to go before any decisions about the centre’s future will be made. “There’s been a significant investment in the building over the past ten years so to walk away from that would be a pretty hard call. We’d have to have some sound engineering reasons to do that and another location [to build on] because we have to have an events centre in central Nelson in my

view, it’s essential.” The cost to strengthen the Trafalgar Centre could range from $2 million to $30 million. The centre over the past year has hosted music concerts, basketball, netball and volleyball games, expos, dinners, trade shows and conferences. It is the only venue in Nelson able to accommodate many of those activities. Rachel says the decision means event organisers have some certainty and the council will work with groups who have booked the centre to help them find another venue. The Nelson Giants say they will relocate to Saxton Stadium for the 2014 season, which will need to set up some temporary seating.

Snooper McLaren’s Austin back to life confronted by elderly woman Police are investigating after a Waimea Village resident caught a man trying to break into her home late Saturday evening. The elderly woman was up at around midnight when a man with a hoodie over his head walked around her house looking through the windows with a torch. The lady, who didn’t want to be named, says she was frightened and yelled to him, asking what he was doing there. The man quickly ran back to his small red hatch/station wagon car and drove away. The lady says she only caught a glimse of his number plate which started with “GAR”. Waimea Village manager Kit Maling says the village has security cameras in place and he was looking through the footage when the Weekly called. “This would have to be one of the safest places in Richmond, with all the people here and the security cameras. I’d say it was just an opportunist,” he says. Sergeant Nick Kempthorne says police have dusted for finger prints but it’s too early to say if there is a positive match. Anyone with any information on the car or the man can contact police.

A “little piece of New Zealand’s history” is currently being restored in a Richmond garage. The 1929 Austin 7 motorsport icon Bruce McLaren is believed to have learnt to drive in has been at Richard Anderson’s place since July 2011, where it is being transformed from a rust bucket back to mint condition. A member of the local Austin 7 group, Richard took on the job no one else seemed to want after the Bruce McLaren Trust sought Nelson engineers to get it going again in the hope it could go on display in a museum. “They sent the car here to Nelson because we are like the mecca for Austin 7s but it was mostly rejected because it was in a terrible, terrible state. It had been left on the beach and had rotted out,” says Richard. “It was put out to various commercial guys but it was excessive, like $30,000 to $100,000 to do it. I said ‘come on guys lets get it going’ and the car ended up here.” Bruce McLaren, who died in 1970, is one of New Zealand motorsport’s most famous sons, having won four Formula 1 races. His legacy lives on with the current Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team – one of the most successful in the championship’s history. Richard had only agreed to do the chassis, front end, back end, the diff and the wheels initially. But no one else “came to the party” to help with the body – mainly because it was an unpaid project – so he ended up with the rest of the work

Richard says the fact the car belonged to the McLaren family had no significance to him, it was just a way to “give back” in his retirement as it’s likely to be used at displays for crippled children – Bruce McLaren was diagnosed with a degenerative disease of the hip joint when he was 10 years old. “I’m no good at singing carols, so I decided this was something I could do to give back to the community.” There are no photos of Bruce driving the Austin 7, which was described as a

“workshop hack”, but his sister Jan had told Richard it was owned by their father Les and that Bruce definitely learnt to drive in it, which is why they had hoped to get it running again and be part of the family collection. The final stage of the restoration project will be putting the motor back in and Richard believes it should only take a month to do so. Once completed, he will drive it around before a trader comes to take it back to the family trust in Auckland where it will sit alongside some of his former racecars.

Drunk driver had baby on board Fifteen people were caught driving above the legal breath alcohol limit on the weekend, but police are concerned that a “large number” more were above the reduced limit to be implemented next year. Police across the region, and Marlborough, West Coast, breath tested close to 7000 drivers on Friday and Saturday nights. One of the 15 drivers that were above the legal breath alcohol level was driving a 15 month old baby, while another was double the legal limit and had driven from Christchurch to Kaikoura. Operation commander inspector Jenni

Richardson says it is concerning to note that a large number of people were detected driving in excess of 250 mcg, which is the new breath alcohol level proposed to be introduced next year. Those drivers were all warned of the consequences when the law change comes into effect. The Australasian Operation Unite was combined in Tasman with another road policing operation focussed on country roads. Operation Unite targeted all alcohol-related offending and police paid particular attention to licensed premises. Across the

In total about 140 police were out on the streets and roads over the two nights. Jenni says the focus for police over the coming weeks would remain on road policing and alcohol related issues. Nelson Bays area commander Inspector Steve Greally says close to 20 people were arrested for disorder, fighting or low level assaults. He said early intervention in Nelson also prevented things escalating further. Police are investigating one assault at Malbas bar. He says breaches of the liquor ban were now well down on where they were two years ago.

Three generations of freezing workers Simon Bloomberg

Senior reporter Reporter The Nelson freezing works has had a long tradition of families working at the plant with the Hart family, John, Allan, Wally, Ian and Murray, leading the way accumulating 125 years of service. William Scowen and his sons Doug, Warwick and Graham and daughter Lorraine were another prominent freezing works family while Phil Lusty, one of the carpenters who helped build the original works in 1908, was followed by his son Phil in 1941 and grandson, Tony Dyer, who still works at the plant today. But when Richmond's Sean Gill joined his father Shane and grandfather Norm at the Alliance Group's Nelson freezing works last month it created history with the Gills being the first family to have three generations working at the plant at the same time. "I've been here 42 years and I can't remember any families having three generations at the same time," Norm says. "There's been a lot of families with fathers, grandfathers, sons and uncles all working here but I think our situation is unique." Norm, who started as a labourer in the old plant before moving to the beef house and then into the cutting room where he is a leading hand and trainer today, says he's stayed there all these years because it's been "a steady job that pays well". He has also enjoyed the challenges of

Photo: Simon Bloomberg. adapting to changes in the industry including learning how to run the computercontrolled weighing and labelling technology. "When I started we all worked in black woollen singlets and processed whole sheep carcasses. Now we're all wearing white gear and hairnets and we're processing all the sheep into cuts. "So much has changed since I started. If someone had told me I would have to

wear a hairnet 40 years ago I would have laughed at them." Although Norm has been one of the plant's longest serving workers, he says he didn't plan on becoming a freezing worker when he left school. "I'd got a new job doing shift work at the chip mill so I had to tell my rugby coach Lin Beloe I couldn't play anymore because of my hours. But that Friday night I got a phone call from Lin saying I had a new job

starting at the freezing works on Monday he jacked it all up so I could keep playing rugby." Shane, who has been at the plant for 27 years, also received a little inside help getting his first job after leaving school at 15. Norm already had a family foot in the door at the freezing works while Norm's brother-in-law Ian Savage just happened to be the plant's employment officer. A leading hand on the slaughterboard, Shane says he has stayed at the freezing works because it's been a good steady job during times when work has not always been easy to find. The pay is also an attraction although he says "it's not as good as it was when he started". "It's still good money but you have to work harder for it these days. I suppose that's the same in most jobs though - it's a sign of the times." Although Sean, 16, is only be a student working there during his school holidays he's likely to become a more permanent fixture once he leaves Waimea College. "I'll be going back to school next year but I'll probably come and work here full-time when I leave," Sean says. "It's hard work but I'm enjoying it." And that's made Norm very proud because not everyone can handle the long hours and physically demanding work. "We get a lot of young guys through here and they don't stay on. Sean's working six days a week in the freezer so he's doing very well to stick it out - it's hard work in there."

Police report with Area Commander

Steve Greally

With Christmas almost upon us I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the people of Nelson Bays for the support they have shown their local police over the last year. I always say that police cannot do an effective job without your support - after all we simply can’t be everywhere all of the time and we rely on responsible members of the community let us know when things are going on. Our operating model over the past year and a half has been focussed on prevention - preventing crimes, crashes and most of all victimisation. If we can stop crime before it happens and we can teach people some simple ways to help keep themselves and their property safe then we will reduce the number of people who become victims. At this time of year a lot of people are out socialising and I can’t stress enough the need to take care of yourself and your mates. People who are intoxicated become easy targets for the criminally minded. It always pays to make a plan before you got out partying and that plan should be all about having fun and living to tell a good story the next day. If you decide in advance how much you are going to drink and how you are going to get home you’re much more likely to have a safe outcome than if you leave those important decisions to chance. While you’re all relaxing and enjoying the summer break remember that my staff will still be working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. From all of the Nelson Bays Police I’d like to wish you a very happy Christmas and a safe new year.

down on previous years. “It is a local Brighwater community thing and apart from what happens at the school there’s nothing like this. It’s really good that the community can come together right before Christmas time.”

Midwife retires after 47 years Most midwives have seen it all before, but after 47 years on the job, Norma Affleck has seen it all and then some. Her baby catching days have seen her work in Papua New Guinea, Saudi Arabia and spend thirty years at Nelson Hospital. She’s delivered thousands of babies but despite her longevity in the field she says she gets just as excited about a birth today as she did when she first started. “What can I say, every baby is different and time goes fast when you’re having fun. I come from a family of ten, so maternal and child health, going on my mother’s example, was always going to be what I would enjoy doing.“ Norma graduated from midwifery in 1966 in Christchurch and in her time in the profession has seen a bit of a contrast in the way things are done. “The most dramatic change I’ve seen was in the first twenty years, husbands weren’t allowed anywhere near during delivery. Now of course we want to know why they aren’t there if not. It’s a complete turnaround.” She says while “babies still come in exactly the same way”, the change she has seen in mothers has been significant. “They

They don’t walk, they drive to the supermarket, buy readymade food and are eating and drinking the wrong foods. “Today a lot of the solo parents see it as a career and see having another child as a rise in pay. There have been plenty of occasions where I have feared for the child because of the lack of maternal care and maturity I’ve seen. And that doesn’t mean because the mother is young I’ve seen wonderful 14, 15 and

16 year olds mothers who are prepared to put their children first. And so many adults who don’t.” Norma says she’s never taken for granted the privilege of attending a birth and says she will miss it dearly. “I will miss it but with friends and colleagues I plan to wean myself off it.” As for her retirement, after years of shift work Norma plans to take some time out and get her body clock back to normal.

New Beginnings Advertorial

We are very proud to be the only care facility in the whole of Nelson to have attained a 4 year certification in the Ministry of Health Certification Audit.

An old face but new beginnings in local care home. Flaxmore Care Home, formally known as Naomi Courts Rest Home, has been caring for the Nelson community since 1992. Historically rest home level care, the home is now a specialist dementia care service. To celebrate our wonderful achievement of being the only home in Nelson to achieve a four year ministry of health certification audit, the home invited residents, relatives and the staff team to put forward their ideas for a new name that better represented the area and the home. The name Flaxmore got the community vote! “Our home is an integral part of the Nelson community so we believed it was important to have them decide on the name”, says Jackie MackenzieHowe, Care Home Manager. “Attaining our four year certification present-

Property insights Do buyers view property over the holiday period? If your home is for sale then you should be prepared to have buyers viewing your home over the holiday period, but past sales records indicate that the volume of sales over this time is very low. Real Estate agent offices and solicitors practices are usually closed for two or three weeks, making buying a little more complicated.

Agents will only work with genuine and serious buyers and they know how to qualify buyers, so if you receive a call from your agent asking for permission to show a buyer over the holiday period then you should take it seriously. Buyers do understand that there are always extra things happening in households over the holiday period and they know that you may ask for some prior notice of a visit.

Lydia Heyward Licensed Real Estate Agent (REAA 2008)

If you are away or if you have someone staying in your home while you are away then be sure to tell your agent. They will ask for your holiday contact details just in case the perfect buyer comes along. Our office will close on Friday 20 December 2013 and reopen on Monday 6 January 2014, however all of our sales team will be available to talk with you over that period.

Summer in Wakefield Before you head out on holiday this summer, make sure you take the time to explore what is on offer right on your back doorstep. The village of Wakefield is full of things to see and do, from shopping destinations, recreation opportunities, sightseeing, dining out and more. Just a few minutes drive from Richmond and the perfect stepping stone on your way further south, Wakefield is one pit stop you should take before venturing further afield. With gift shops, a Four Square supermarket, tea-

rooms, a restaurant, hair salons and a local bar, you’ll find everything you need to either enjoy a holiday or get ready for one. River swimming holes are just around the corner and recreational reserve Faulkner’s Bush is the perfect place to relax.With the last service stations for 122km and a 24 hour fuel pump, you won’t be caught short either. Take a drive out to Wakefield, or stop by for a visit before heading down south. You’ll be plesantly suprised.

Merry Christmas - See you here!

many ase foretold hundreds was born, that valiy and suation of ne Jewish there are ssages in that give

details of his family tree, his miraculous birth, his birthplace of Bethlehem, his miracles, details of his sufferings and crucifixion and his resurrection. Many who heard him speak were astonished and asked, “Where did this man get his wisdom?” An officer who was sent to arrest him said, “No man ever spoke like this man!” Pilate who tried him said, “I find no fault in him!” A Roman soldier who supervised his crucifixion said, “Truly this was the Son of God!” The apostle Paul who, prior to writing most of the New Testament was a former persecutor of Christians and hater of Jesus, had a dramatic

life changing encounter and declared “He is indeed the Son of God!” In fact he said, “Yes everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.” Jesus himself said “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me!” Research polls reveal a wide range of responses when people are asked their thoughts about who Jesus is. Some say he was an ancient philosopher, others a great religious leader, an influential social reformer, a good man, a prophet or ‘the Son of God.’ Jesus also loved asking searching questions, not because he didn’t know the an-

swers, but because he wanted us to discover how to live lives with meaning and purpose. He also asked people the same question. “Who do people say I am?” He then followed it up with, “But who do you say I am?” This is a question that still challenges us and demands an honest response as it is undoubtedly the most important question you can ask yourself as you discover the true reason for why we celebrate Christmas and the birth of Christ. He more than any other gives credibility in dealing with the real questions of life: questions of origin, meaning, morality, and destiny. Think about it!

It doesn’t have too many traditional Christmas colours and there’s no sign of any tinsel but the Christmas display in the Richmond Salvation Army Store’s front window is certainly making a big impression on shoppers on Queen St. Store manager Paula Taplin has designed and created Christmas trees and decorations mostly out of driftwood she and her mother Anne Taplin collected from the Marlborough Sounds and the result is eye-catching. The display is also designed to send the message that Christmas doesn’t have to be about buying expensive presents. “The only things we had to buy for it was some popcorn and nylon string,” Paula says. “We wanted to say you don’t have to spend a lot of money at Christmas to enjoy it.” Paula says she and Anne started collecting driftwood a couple of months ago and then her father John helped out with making the trees. Paula put the finishing touches to the display which occupies most of the store’s front window. “My mother always get roped into helping me out with things so she and I started collecting the driftwood. We had so much dad started complaining about all this wood lying around the place, he was pleased when we started making decorations.” The popcorn and paper has been sued to make snowflakes while a constellation of stars have been made from paper from old books. The Salvation Army’s decorations were entered into Richmond Unlimited’s Decorate 2 Win competition for Christmas shop window displays. The winners were to be announced later this week.

Oakwoods’ craft queen

Seventy nine year old Jeanne Taylor is what you’d call a bit of a craft queen. A well known crochet master at Oakwoods resthome where she is a resident, she is always making something and staff say her work is admired. A refurbishment happening in the resthome has required Jeanne to move to another room, so her belongings had to be packed up including an extensive collection of craftwork. Diversional therapist Bev Inwood says staff saw it as the perfect opportunity to show off a “very talented lady’s craft” and her work was showcased at the front entrance to the resthome. Jeanne has entered garments in the World of Wearable Arts competition in its early days and she has entered many competitions across different countries when she and her husband travelled to England, Europe, America and Australia. She has also had exhibitions of her work in those countries. Bev describes Jeanne’s creativity as astounding. “She is always making something, be it fairies, scarves or showing the residents how to felt, there is always a project on the go. Just a few weeks ago she completed a crocheted garment that was sent to a competition in England. We just found out it was judged best in show.” Jeanne says she doesn’t think she’ll ever stop being creative and she enjoys seeJeanne Taylor is known as Oakwood’s “craft queen”. ing a finished product that she’s created JInc-Ad-xmas-2013-Waimea-Weekly-180x260-AD3.pdf 10/12/13 11:26:57 PM at the end.

Well known for their service, the day to day compliments that Trudi, Ian come as a welcome surprise says Trudi. laughter and above all else great coffee, Columbus Coffee owners Trudi and Ian Brassfield have proven that they have the recipe for success when it comes to local hospitality. It’s an exciting time for the duo, who have jumped at the opportunity to open up a new café in Richmond. The doors to their new business based out of the Kmart complex are now open and they are looking forward to building on the fantastic name they have made for themselves around town. Their new café is modern, spacious and is unique while in keeping with the character of Columbus Coffee. Based in the hub of Richmond’s CBD, they are open from 7am to 5.30pm for breakfast, brunch, lunch and a wide variety of cabinet food.

in town, they make a true effort to get to know their customers. “We really love our regulars and each of us has formed great relationships with them. We know exactly what their favourite drink is, before they’ve even reached the counter.” A great example of that was a Christmas card the team recently received, which was from a regular who sang their praises. It was signed ‘Julie - single-shot mocha, takeaway cup, extra hot – “that was special because she knew we would know exactly who she was just by the name of her drink.” “We and our staff treat customers as though they have just walked into our home and we’ve sat them down onto the couch. We serve consistently good coffee and great food because that is what people want.” With the new store right in the heart of a huge growth area, Ian knows they are onto a good thing. “We recognise that Richmond is getting busier and busier. The whole place is just buzzing at the moment so we are really excited to be a part of that.” With polished concrete floors, a living wall of plants, modern interior and plenty of outdoor seating, Columbus Coffee Richmond is going to be a place everyone will want to experience. And with the added bonus of free parking, customers will find visiting so convenient. The café is also on Richmond’s shopping ‘golden mile’ Queen St, with the mall just a stone’s throw away across the car park. The style of the café is a bit different from the one in Morrison Square, but all of the values and service standards that Trudi and Ian are known for will stay, and the ‘Columbus’ style of doing things will be a focal point. They’ve had trainers down to work with all of the new staff, teaching them the Columbus Coffee way of doing things, so expect to be impressed when you visit. The doors are open now to the brand new Columbus Coffee in Richmond. Trudi, Ian and the team welcome locals to head in, check out their new space and try their fantastic coffee. Visit them for breakfast, grab a quick coffee or rest your feet after a hard day of Christmas shopping for some afternoon tea.

Thank you: I wanted to write and thank you personally for an outstanding article regarding our gridiron. You definitely have an expertise for writing interesting news, and we are very grateful for your time! I wish you a very peaceful holidays! Mark Rais

On behalf of the Nelson Bays Tennis Association, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and to thank you for your support this year reporting on tennis events in our lovely region. Media support at a local level is invaluable in developing tennis in the Tasman area. Ali McQullian, regional coordinator NBTA.

Mall car parking: I enjoy shopping at the Richmond Mall, but surely this is a case of ‘privatising the profits, while socialising the costs’. Increasing mall profits by getting retailers/employees to park on the surrounding street thereby increasing customer numbers. But imposing a parking problem on the Richmond Kindergarten 200-300 metres away. Isn’t it Richmond Mall’s obligation to provide sufficient carparking at their place of business? anon Lot more cars parked down Elizabeth St than usual. Tania Wastney. That means theirs a time limit on people at houses they visit there maybe the home owners should protest at the kindy instead off been onesided. Terry Beach. Well they should take off the time limit in the shopping mall

Polluted slipways: I’m totally gobsmacked that the problem with antifouling at the region’s slipways has only just been noticed the pollution didn’t just happen overnight. Surely routine monitoring is carried out, if not, why not?

Come on Mr Bryant, chair for the Environment and Planning committee, fess up, why wasn’t this addressed when it was detected earlier in the year in the preliminary study? This time of year when people are anti-fouling their boats means the gross pollution - 100 times higher than national guidelines is likely to be a significant underestimate of the true problem but worse, to leave it until next year before acting is totally irresponsible. A collaborative approach with facility users and council needs to be addressed immediately, even if this means council initially pays for the clean-up recouping costs from users later. Sue Wilson.

Cricket girls off to Christchurch A season playing against the boys is sure to make the Nelson-Otago secondary school girls team battled-hardened ahead of this week’s tournament in Christchurch. Five players from the Nelson Ladies rep team, which competes in the local boys college grade, have formed the Nelson-Otago side for the Canterbury Secondary School Regional Tournament this week, with a handful of girls coming up from Otago to help with the numbers. The team went to the same competition last year, losing all four games, and coach Warren Brown admits it will be a tough assignment yet again. “It’s the wider Canterbury region and the team we’re playing with is made up of half Otago girls and half Nelson girls just due to the other commitments of our girls,” says Warren. “A lot of the Otago girls that have come up are really young because there’s also an under 21 tournament on

at the same time.” Canterbury will field two Metro sides, while Canterbury Country, Mid Canterbury and South Canterbury will also take part. Warren, who also coaches the Nelson Ladies side, admits numbers in the region were low but says Nelson Cricket has been hugely supportive towards women’s cricket. “It’s hard work to be honest but we do have two or three girls who are really good and some of them have played men’s senior cricket which isn’t bad for 15 year old girls.” Because of the low numbers, the girls are a regular fixture in the local boys college grade, but Warren believes that has made them better players. “It’s great playing the guys because it’s either do-or-die. We’re coming down here and we know none of the girls can bowl as fast as the college boys and they can’t hit the ball as hard. So if you can compete with them you’ll do quite well.”

Fishing with

Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club December has generally been a month of a few missed fishing weekends due to windy weather which is typical for this time of year. The weekend just gone was a stunner and hopefully the weather will start to generally improve as Christmas fast approaches and looking at the long range forecast for this weekend, fine with light winds, boat ramps around the region should see plenty of action. The water temperature is on the rise in Tasman Bay with some snapper spawning now and on the increase over the next few weeks. There have been good snapper caught in the middle of the bay and once more fish spawn the slightly bigger fish will move in closer to shore, just in time for the holidays. There are heaps of pannies about down both the Boulder Bank and Rabbit Island. Large schools of kahawai have been seen in the cut this week, and it would be well worth while to start trolling the Boulder Bank for kingfish from now on. Kenepuru has produced some large snapper in the last two weeks but fishing is still quite patchy. The Marlborough Sounds Area opens this month for blue cod on December 20. Below are rules pertaining to this area that everyone should be aware of when fishing there. Marlborough Sounds Area > This area will be closed to blue cod fishing from 1 September until 19 December (inclusive) each year to protect the core spawning season. > Within this area, fishers can only take or possess 2 blue cod per fisher at any one time. This applies even if you caught the fish over more than

Any blue cod eaten form part of your daily limit. > You must not use more than 2 hooks per fishing line when fishing for any finfish species (excluding longlines). > Fishers staying in baches or living aboard vessels are not exempt from these regulations and may only land or transport by sea 2 whole or gutted blue cod on any one day.

Power Angels shine at Commonwealths Celia McMillan and Aimee Hayes are used to lifting heavy objects, but they still noticed the extra weight when posing for a photo with their championship multiple medals on Monday. The two Richmond women, who refer to themselves as the Power Angels, tasted success at their first ever international powerlifting competition, with Celia breaking Commonwealth records en route to her gold medal performance at the Commonwealth Powerlifting Championship in Manukau. Celia, who was entered in the under 52kg weight class, lifted a combined total of 385kg to take out the championship ahead of international opponents. Her 385kg was made up of 137.5kg squat, 95kg benchpress and 152.5kg deadlift. Aimee was second in the under 63kg weight class and lifted 167.5kg for squat, 67.5kg for bench and 142.5kg for deadlift making a combined total of 377.5kg. Overall there were 500 competitors at the competition, with some lifting until 2:30am.

Bridget Budget answers your questions

Q: My partner and I are always

fighting about money. My partner hates the idea of having a budget, but I think it is a good way to plan for bills. What are some other good reasons for having a budget? A: Having a budget is just about knowing how you are going to spend your money. Here are some reasons why having a plan for your money is a good idea:  Agreeing on a spending plan together will significantly reduce the financial stress in your relationship  Bills are not stressful. There will be money set aside for the things that you have to pay for: (rent/ mortgage, power, food, utilities, loans etc)  You will become more aware of the things you are spending your money on- Is it what you really want?  You will be more likely to achieve your financial goals (saving for a house deposit, buying car, going on holiday, going to study etc) You will have some money set aside for entertainment / hobbies You will be more financially prepared for the unexpected (redundancy, illness, accidents etc.) You will be more likely to become debt free and avoid bad debt

A budget is different for each person because everyone has different priorities and different incomes. Make a unique plan that suits your needs at; or call us to arrange an appointment with a non-judgemental budget advisor. It’s free and confidential. Send any questions to

ODI close to sell-out Phillip Rollo

West Indies stars Chris Gayle and Kieran Pollard have been ruled out of the ODI series, but cricket fans have still been quick to snap up tickets to Nelson’s first ever cricket international match. The Black Caps will host West Indies on January 4 – the first time both teams have ever played an international here. The significance of the match, played at the peak of the summer holidays and featuring the highest profile New Zealand sports team to ever play in Nelson, has made it the hottest ticket in town and already “72 per cent” of them have been sold, according to New Zealand Cricket. Temporary seating has increased the capacity of Saxton Oval to 5500 and match manager Neville Male says the stands are selling well. “And


certainly the general admission ticket sales are also indicating there is sufficient interest and what we’re hoping for is a sell-out,” he says. “As much as we’ve had Super Rugby games, this would have to be the most important sporting occasion we’ve had in Nelson and that’s significant in its own right.” New Zealand and West Indies are currently two tests through their ANZ International Series and the Nelson match will be the fourth of five one day internationals. Saxton Oval was granted international accreditation just months ago, following the announcement it would be a host venue for the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2015.

Tickets went on sale early last week at an affordable price, and not too dissimilar to first class domestic prices. Nelson Cricket Association chairman David Leonard says he will be surprised if it’s anything short of a sell out as this is the biggest sporting event to ever be played in our sunny city. “With the capacity we’ve got we’d be confident this will sell-out. This is massive. It’s the beginning of a new era for Nelson Cricket.” Ticket prices range from $13 for a child, $23 for a senior or student, and $43 for an adult, but there are family options available too, including two adults and two children for $85 or one adult and two children for $55. Tickets for the Black Caps versus West Indies match can be purchased on All Blacks prop Ben Franks with Liam Peters, 8, of Stoke and Jeen Salton, 11, of Richmond, at Franks Brothers Crossfit on Friday evening.

Dragons survive comeback to seal title The United Dragons comprise of mainly Broadgreen Intermediate School students with two from Tapawera Area School. By winning Saturday’s final, United now qualify for a South Island tournament min Christchurch which they won last season.

The unbeaten Eagles have gone down 7-5 to the United Dragons in Saturday’s Under-13 softball final, and the match wasn’t short of drama. A score complication eventually saw United awarded the victory, although the Eagles had claims for a 5-all draw. The Dragons, who had lost to the Eagles in round three, started the better of the two finalists in the Rookie Sox League for Year 7 and 8s, but a Ben Adlington home run with loaded bases saw the Marty Grant-coached Eagles swoop back into contention late in the game. Dragons coach Dave Morel says the first two innings were definitely going his team’s way, but admits things got intense in the third. “They ended up scoring the five runs and then we went into the fourth innings before we ran out of time so it converted back to the third innings score of 7-5.” Dave says the boys were “absolutely rapt” with the win. “Our other junior team the Rangers won their very first game yesterday and that means they came third, so it was a United victory all around on Saturday.”
