Adult ‘bullies’ lead the way

Phillip Rollo

Cyber bullying is rife, according to a local internet safety expert, but most of it is coming from adults who then “demonise” kids for doing the same thing. Nelson-based John Parsons held an online safety seminar at Wakefield School last week where he said parents need to take responsibility for their children’s behaviour online and that starts with education. He says the easiest way to eliminate cyber bullying has nothing to do with technol-

ogy, it is about how people treat each other socially, and that includes parents. John says his biggest goal is allowing children to use technology, labelling it a “human right”. John is used as an expert by schools and local police to help educate families and children on how to safely navigate social networking websites. “I think that anyone that wants to impede that opportunity is making a big mistake, we need to support them and let them use this properly,” says John. John has held modules at a number of Nel-

son schools for several years now. Those include Murchison Area School, Enner Glynn School, Victory School, Nelson College for Girls and others outside of the region. The main points covered in the module included identity theft while also debating if schools should be responsible for cyber bullying. All of the environments linked to cyber bullying occur outside of the school, says John. “A lot of their behaviour is picked up at home and brought into school yet there is

a big focus on schools changing that, but they can’t. It has to be raised as a bigger topic. Everyone must take ownership of cyber bullying for the problem to stop.” John says there are also many double standards related to cyber bullying that allow parents to pass judgement on their child’s action but not their own. He used an example of Belarusian shot putter Nadzeya Ostapchuck’s recent treatment within social media. SEE PAGE 3

Kapa haka a first for Appleby

Appleby School children say they are excited about getting involved in their newly established kapa haka group, run by Ngati Kuia tangata whenua Madsen Elkington. School principal Graham Avery says all of the school’s 120 children participate in the group, which extends current in-class lessons and complements the range of extra-curricula activities offered by the school. “This is a great way for the children to be actively involved as they learn more about tikanga and te reo Maori. They really enjoyed the first session and are looking forward to demonstrating their new skills to family and whanau at some stage in the future,” he says. The school had recognised the benefits of a cultural group for some time, and parents were requesting the formation of a group, but it was a matter of finding the right person to teach the children, he says. “We are very fortunate to have Madsen. It’s fantastic to have someone with his skill set to SEE PAGE 2 wheelchairs mobility scooters walker/canes electric beds ands hoists lift assist chairs bathroom solutions incontinence products daily living aids/products

“Nah I don’t. I don’t like the taste and I don’t like the texture. It’s just not my thing.”

“Yeah I like it, probably because it’s something you don’t get all of the time.”

“I do if I can afford it, haha. It’s just got a nice different flavour to other fish and maybe it’s because you don’t have it very often.”

“I like that I have it once a year to remind me of this lovely unique flavour. I never mind the price.”

Kids back home after accident Two Tapawera children who were seriously injured during a farm related accident are safely home after they were discharged from hospital this week. The accident occurred on Thursday evening when the father of the two children’s ute rolled with

the children still inside. It is believed the father brought the two children out to feed hay when the accident occurred. The boy is age three years old and the girl four. The children were airlifted to Nelson Hospital with their father by the Nelson Marl-

borough Rescue Helicopter following the accident. Police spokesperson Barbara Dunn says police completed an investigation last week before handing the case over to the Business, Innovation and Employment Ministry to investigate.

Large market gardens were also planted in Appleby and evidence of kumara pits can still be seen in the area. “Kapa haka is an excellent opportunity for the Appleby Schoool children and their whanau to acknowledge and celebrate our cultural history and diversity,” Graham says.

Whitebait at 30 year low Phillip Rollo Whitebait could be hard to come by this season with numbers at a 30 year low, says Simon Bailey of the Department of Conservation. The season officially opened on August 15, however, Simon expects the banks of the local riverbeds to remain empty for the coming weeks as poor whether and declining whitebait numbers delay what would usually be peak times. “I’ve been doing patrols for seven years and speaking to whitebaiters who have been there for 30 years they say there has been an overall decline,” Simon says. “There are not many people around at the moment because things haven’t kicked off that quickly. That is understandable if you get a wet end to winter. People would’ve gone out, checked the conditions and decided to wait awhile.” Richmond’s Larry Sutherland, who has been whitebaiting in the Waimea River for 50 years, says he will wait another few weeks before he starts fishing so was unsure how many fish would be in the river.

He confirmed that whitebait had been in decline for a number of years, however in 2010, the Waimea River had its best run in 30 years. The low numbers of whitebait in the NelsonTasman rivers are because of changing habitat caused by land development, says Simon. There are fewer wetlands than in previous years and more stock are situated near creeks. Whitebait breed in the mouths of rivers and if stock are allowed to graze to the river’s edge, then the whitebait eggs are left vulnerable. DOC has been looking into how the rivers can be better managed, although those discussions are still ongoing with Tasman District Council. Despite low numbers of whitebait, the number of people fishing for them has remained at a constant figure throughout the past decade. The Motueka River has been the most popular spot in the Tasman region while the Waimea River and the Wakapuaka River are known to have had good runs in the past. The whitebait season closes again on November 30. For full details and rules around whitebaiting visit

Ultra fast broadband coming to Tasman Work to bring ultra fast broadband to homes, schools and businesses in Tasman was officially launched last week. Last Thursday Chorus, along with the government, announced its roll out of ultrafast broadband to the region. A network of fibre cable is already available for businesses in the Richmond CBD but the latest announcement will see it go into new schools, businesses and homes around the region. Tasman District mayor Richard Kempthorne was at the launch and says the announcement is exciting for the region. “This is an exciting occasion for us to cel-

Red Hot Special! Fresh Hellers NZ Pork Shoulder Roast Avanti Plus Richmond owners Mike and Jo Anderson give Jared Cummings a new bike.

A Richmond boy that had his bike stolen from the school bike stands has had it replaced by the town’s newest cycle store. Avanti Plus Richmond opened its doors last week and one of its first tasks was finding a replacement bike for Waimea Intermediate Student Jared Cummings. As reported in the Waimea Weekly two months ago, Jared’s BMX bike was stolen when the alleged thief came onto school grounds to take his bike. Jared did not have his bike locked up at the bike stands, which is more than 100m down the school’s main driveway and only accessible to students, staff and school visitors. Jared’s mother Sandra Cummings says the offer was “very generous”. “I thought ‘wow, there are obviously people left in this world that are human’. I couldn’t believe it.” Jared had been walking to school since his bike was stolen and was equally happy. “I was so excited,” says Jared, who rode his new bike home from Avanti Plus. Store owners Mike and Jo Anderson also donated a free bike lock to Jared to make sure his new bike could not be stolen. The idea of giving him a bike came about when they read his story in the Waimea Weekly. “You feel sorry for kids that that sort of thing happens to, especially when his mum says that was his pride and joy,” says Jo. “We’re obviously locals and Avanti were happy to help out as well. It was so satisfying giving them the phone call because they were absolutely stoked.”

Mini speeds to world record

Phillip Rollo

A Nelson Mini has clocked an average speed of 235.9 kilometers per hour to etch its name into the world record books for a new land speed record in its class. Dubbed Project ‘64, the 1964 Mini Cooper S driven by Nelson Hartley, the brother of former Red Bull Formula 1 prodigy Brendon Hartley, reached a top speed of 151.087mph through a three mile short course on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah last week. It beats the previous record of 210kmh held by the Hudson Boys.

To break the record, the 1964 Mini had to beat the previous time through the second and third mile of a three mile course. It then went into “impound” for four hours, giving the crew enough time to correct any faults before taking to the salt flats for a second time. The Mini had to beat its previous speed in the second attempt and both speeds were then accumulated and calculated into an average over the mile. The Mini was competing in the I/BGCC class, which is determined by engine size, in this case up to 1000cc, supercharged and competition coupe.

The entire crew included driver Nelson, who helped build the engine with his father Bryan, Nelson based race car and classic restorers Guy Griffith and Garry Orton, who work out of Victory R at the World of Wearable Arts and Classic Cars Museum, Alltrax NZ’s Garry Grant and Christchurch based Mini guru Larry Mullholland of Swift Automotive. In addition to the team, 25 supporters were in Bonneville for the record attempt. Most of those supporters came from Nelson but there were a handful from Canada and other parts of New Zealand. Project spokesperson Mike Wilson says the group was “very happy” to have broken the land speed record, despite acknowledging that the Mini had potential to go faster. The crew celebrated with cheers, hugs, a nice dinner and champagne all round,

the latter two courtesy of sponsor Peter Talley. “It feels very special, especially since we achieved it with a car that really shouldn’t have been able to do it. Minis have always been known for their cornering ability but never for their straight line speed,” says Mike, speaking from Utah. “On the morning of our first qualifying run the Bonneville Speedway radio station was playing some archive tapes of Burt Munro speaking and he was talking of the fact the anyone could buy a new bike and go fast, but to break records with an old bike was a much more interesting challenge.” Burt’s grandson Rob Henderson and his wife Tracy are two of the project’s staunchest supporters and sent a message saying “Burt would have been proud of you all.” Next on the agenda will be plenty of sleep and spending time with their families, says Mike. There has been talk of other events such as Pikes Peak, but there could also been another return to Bonneville next year.

Father’s Day is just around the corner on 2 September and Fashion Island would like to help spoil your dad. So with this in mind, I am up for a browse to find some great ideas and gifts. On Hardy St I stroll first into Rodd and Gunn. The new range of polo shirts is a great idea and the leather accessories are made in NZ. The luggage is exquisite. Even for the fisherman in the family there is a leather/ sheepskin fly wallet. Just along the road is Barkers. Adoring the new shirts that have just been unpacked, and also their selection of canvas bags. Heading back around to The Rock Box, and not focusing on what I could buy - but the guys have great choice in jeans, shirts and jackets in awesome brands. With George Clooney peering at me from the windows of Sunglass Style, the range of driving, sport and casual sunglasses is another option. The range of men’s soaps moisturisers and gift packs from The Body Shop and Lush also make an easy choice for dad’s gifts. Next stop Living and Giving, and if your dad is a genius in the kitchen, or on the BBQ, there is plenty to choose from. Just Jeans have a fantastic range of jeans like Levi, Calvin Klein, check out Jay Jays for tees, and for dad’s desk at the office-contemporary pens and pads can be found at Smiggles.

Band drums up support A local high school band is in the running to open at the national Smokefreerockquest final, but it needs the public’s support to get them there. Fire Without Permit, consisting of twins Rigel and Bowyne Blanchet from Nelson College as well as Hana Tava, Jordan Harvey and Jacob King of Waimea College, was chosen as the Skinny People’s Choice band when the Nelson final was held at the Theatre Royal in May. All of the regional winners in this category, who have not reached the final, are now be eligible to open for the eight finalists at the national final in Hamilton on

September 22. The winning band will also get its flights and accommodation paid for. The voting process will remain the same for the nation-wide competition with members of the public able to text the name of the band they would like to see reach the final. You can vote for each act by sending the band name with no spaces to 5678. Texts cost 20 cents. Voting closes on September 14 at 2pm. Meanwhile, Nelson winner New Vinyl will hear tonight whether it has made the top eight for the national final, which was won by the Peasants in 2011.

Patients get Marmite fix

It may not be an advisable way to get your Marmite fix, but waking up in Nelson Hospital is one way to get your hands on the scarce spread. Patients at the hospital are still being offered Marmite for their breakfast despite the spread not be produced for the past five months as its manufacturer, Sanitarium, repairs its earthquake damaged plant. Production is expected to resume in October but jars of Marmite have been selling for hundreds of dollars on Trade Me as desperate foodies seek out the few remaining jars in the country. For Nelson woman Solveig Sheed all she had to do to get her hands on it was tick the right box at Nelson Hospital when ordering her breakfast. Maria Chhina, food manager for Compass Group which supplies the food to Nelson Hospital, says the region got lucky with its supplier Bidvest having a higher than usual stock of the small Marmite portions when the plant closed down. She says some patients have been very appreciative and that the hospital will have enough stock to last until production starts again in two months.

Just a thought Lifeguard named NZ’s best It can be really frustrating being sick can’t it? Especially if you are one of those disgustingly healthy people who don’t even get a cold. Recently I called on our emergency health team. They did a fantastic job. Without exception, all the staff were kindly and very proficient in their work. Since then I’ve become part of the medical system. I’m not very patient waiting my turn in the medical procedure line. I find myself grumbling about the slow progress. I should be thanking God that I live in a country where emergency medical services are provided free of charge. At least here the necessary follow-up does happen. It takes time but it does happen. Across the world, people die because they can’t receive the right treatment. Why doesn’t God preSusan Gill, vent their deaths? I wish I could Holy Trinity answer that. All I know is that we Church. humans could do a lot more to prevent death than we do. Recently I sat with a relative across the other side of the world. He was dying. God was with him, as he was with me – the peace was tangible. Is God with all who are dying? I believe so – but that doesn’t take away our obligation to prevent unnecessary deaths. Many die when they could be well and healthy with the right treatment. We are responsible for our neighbour – wherever they live.

Richmond’s Rachel Pike has been named lifeguard of the year at a national aquatics conference last week. She says the award is great payback for the effort she has put into the industry over the years. “A lot of people put in extra effort and it’s not always recognised. Everyone does their day job but sometimes it’s those extra things and I think this is probably an acknowledgement of that,” says Rachel. Each lifeguard is nominated before being interviewed and judged. Rachel reached the top seven two years ago, the first time she was nominated. Rachel grew up in the Nelson region, before going onto study in Dunedin. She then travelled overseas before returning home. “I

went to Waimea College, so I’m a true Nelson girl. I grew up here so I thought it’d be a great place for my children to grow up too.” Having trained to be a teacher, Rachel first took the job at the ASB Aquatic Centre thinking it would “look good” on her CV when she applied for teaching jobs. Five and a half years later and only one in pool rescue and she has not looked back. Rachel started off as the swimming school instructor before training as a lifeguard and picking up further roles at the complex. She is now the aquatics coordinator. “I enjoy it here. There are challenges day to day. Out on pool deck there are long hours standing around but it’s what ASB Aquatic Centre’s aquatics coordinator you make of it. There are customers Rachel Pike has been named NZ Lifeguard of there to talk to all day.” the Year. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

Bridget Budget answers your questions

Q: I have got behind in my power bill, and now owe a lot of money. The power company is going to disconnect my power if I don’t pay all the arrears. They won’t let me pay the debt off weekly. What shall I do? Shall I change to another power company? A: You will have to pay your power arrears to keep your power connected. If you try to change to another power company they will check your credit history and probably refuse you. This means you may have to get your power on in a family member’s or friend’s name. Here are some suggestions to avoid getting into this situation again:  Get budget advice to see if you can prioritise your spending  Increase weekly payments if they are not covering your power usage  Look at ways to lower your power usage  If the meter is not getting read monthly, read it yourself and phone the info to the power company so they they can send you a bill  For a new account make sure you put enough money aside for the first power bill We offer free, confidential advice for everyone.

Seven years ago the Nelson Women’s Centre threw out its remaining sewing machines after they kept breaking down, but last week it hosted its first sewing workshop since then, thanks to a local group. Patches of Tasman held a successful patchwork and quilting symposium in April and used the funds it raised to donate sewing machines to Nelson Women’s Centre and the Victory Community Centre. Carrie Mozena, of the women’s centre, says the machines mean the centre can host sewing classes giving local women practical skills. The class, called ‘from op shop to

top shop’ began last Tuesday and will see eight women take part. Sponsorship from local and national businesses and organisations, donations of locally made goods and complementary exhibitions at local galleries all contributed to the success of the symposium. That led the Patches of Tasman organising committee, with the on-going support from Bernina NZ, to acknowledge their appreciation by donating new sewing machines and notions to the Nelson Women’s Centre and to the Victory Community Centre to assist these groups to learn and develop sewing and creative skills.

Honey makers on golden run Phillip Rollo

A Wakefield couple’s honey business is on a golden run, collecting its third first placing in as many years at an awards section of the National Beekeeper’s Association conference. Mountain Valley Honey owners Murray and Nicky Elwood claimed a first placing

for their manuka honey in 2010, their bee pollen in 2011 and their autumn gold recently won first place in the liquid honey dark section. The Elwoods decided to enter their honey two years after taking over the business, which its previous owners had ran for 15 years. “We’re making this honey, it’s nice, we’re selling it, so we wanted to see how it

would go against everyone else,” says Murray. “When you get the odd placing you know you must be doing alright. It shows that it’s world class honey.” The secret to supplying great tasting honey is doing “as little as possible”, he says. “It’s as natural as can be. A lot of big companies micro-filter it and they heat it up.”

The majority of Mountain Valley’s 1200 bee hives are situated in the Marlborough Sounds with some at the base of the Whangamoa. “You work out what sort of crop you want to get. Predominantly in the Sounds it’s just manuka whereas in the Whangamoa if we put them in early it’ll be kamahi and then a bit of manuka and the native plants coming on.” Nicky says her passion behind making honey is the variety and the challenges that each year offers. “There’s always that anticipation of what flavours are going to be there,” she says. “At the beginning of the season just tasting it and wondering what the mix is. It’s an exciting industry to be in.” Murray starts each morning with two slices of toast covered in manuka honey, which has always been his favourite. Mountain Valley honey is sold throughout the country at whole food Murray Elwood with his award winning honey. stores as well as at the Saturday Market. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

Karenne Mines, the Richmond Early Learning Centre’s Office Manager, has recently been promoted to the position of Centre Manager. Karenne’s transition to the role of manager will be seamless, as she already has strong relationships with staff, children and parents. Her promotion will provide continuity, security and stability for the centre’s families and their children. Karenne will be supported by Jo Bates, the centre’s Curriculum Leader, and a strong team of teachers. Karenne says “Our Centre has continued to progress in leaps in bounds; this is evident by the Karenne Mines feeling of warmth and belonging when you walk through the door. Choosing care for your child is never an easy decision. You will be impressed by their nurturing, caring atmosphere, created by their dedicated, qualified staff; this is what attracts families to their Centre. Instinct is a parents’ best guide – “if it feels right for you then it probably is”.

Waimea College bowl over Shirley for title Phillip Rollo

The Waimea College first XV finished the season off in style to claim the Press Cup Bowl as the best section two side. It seemed fitting that first five-eight Luca Roden’s monster 50 metre penalty capped off what was arguably the side’s strongest performance of the year, to brush off Shirley Boys’ High School 32-14 at Waimea College on Saturday. Waimea’s unbeaten run in the section two playoffs gave the side plenty of confidence heading into the fixture, showing it probably deserved to be contesting higher spots. Prop Hamish Le Comte got the side off to the best possible start, crashing over in the opening minutes of the match before Kurt Malietoa charged down a clearing kick to score the second try. Luca also landed an early penalty as Waimea College held a 17-7 lead at the break. Outstanding fullback Fletcher Matthews pushed the home side into a more commanding lead when he scored just minutes into the second spell. Sean Clementson then made it four tries when he raced down the left wing to put the match beyond doubt.

Premier teams to contest semi final Fifteen games each in the regular season count for nothing now as the slate is wiped clean for the semi finals of the 2012 Premier Championship which will be played at Saxton Stadium on Thursday. Jacks OPD and Richmond Robbie’s Bar & Bistro will meet in the 1 v 2 playoff with the winner booking it’s place in the final, the loser will play the winner of the 3 v 4 semi between Waimea College and Stoke NBS on Saturday. Jacks OPD have gone through the regular unbeaten however they did not go unscathed as Stoke NBS grabbed a hard earned bonus point (finishing within five goals) in the third round and Richmond claimed a draw last week in a preverbal nail biter. Jacks coach, Robyn Leonard admitted her charges have had a number of good wins with some convincing score lines and have not really been under pressure until the game against Stoke. To their credit, Jacks knuckled down and “sorted it out” to take the win. The Richmond encounter was a tight one, with Richmond holding the lead until late in the third period. Jacks moved up a gear with powerful performances by mid courters Jodi Hikuroa and Moana Forbes who ensured that prolific shooters Ani Waitai and Leanne Cook had an abundance of quality ball. Come Thursday night though, the repeat of last week’s game will have a different look about it, due to the fact that New Zealand Women’s Basketball finals are being played In Dunedin. Jacks will be without playmaker Jodi Hikuroa however Richmond will be a whole lot “worse off ” with Nicky Rampton, Kat Jones and Lisa Book on basketball duty. Jacks have a few options to replace Jodi at centre – there’s Moana or Tineil Stevenson and Kirsten Powick could also pull on the C bib. Jacks treasure their record to date and do not want to crumble and fall at the final hurdle. Their aim is to take the game and the direct

route to the final but to do so will be looking at a team effort. If their full court defence fires and the shooters continue in the same vein as they have all season it is difficult to see them being beaten. For Richmond on the other hand, have more of a headache in filling the key goal attack position. Nicky Rampton is without a doubt the top goal attack in the competition and leaves big shoes to fill – both literally and figuratively! Nicky has been Richmond’s “go–to–girl” throughout the season, she shoulders a hefty load through court and is the predominant shooter, returning commendable statistics week in, week out. Without the basketball trio, Richmond still have seven regulars on their roster, add to the mix coach Amanda Springer who adds to the defensive end and they do have players in their Grade 1 and 2 teams who have premier experience and could fit into the groove quite nicely. At the back of their minds Richmond know they will have their full roster available for the final on 30 August however they have to win one more game before they can reach the final... be it against Jacks on Thursday or by facing Waimea or Stoke on Saturday. Waimea College and Stoke NBS have had some great battles throughout the regular season – Stoke won the first by a solitary goal, Waimea the second by three goals and claimed the third by one in the absolute final second. Waimea’s stand in coach Lynne Olsen believes it will need to be a consistent four quarters and the least amount of errors that will pave the way for the win. Waimea have an abundance of talent within their ranks with Ella Marwick and Ashley Laing providing the experience through the mid court. Shaun Aindow has proved to be the revelation at goal shoot and takes everything in her stride returning good statistics while goal attack, Kayla Cross works hard in support of Shaun. It would be reasonable to say Stoke’s season has resembled a game of snakes and ladders – some ups, some downs however they appear to be improving at the right end of the season. They have versatility within their roster, however coach, Priyani De SilvaCurrie has had a reasonably settled line up in the championship round and is unlikely to experiment with untested combinations. Stoke manage to create a fair amount of turnover ball however they are guilty of not always converting the hard won ball. Goal keep, Aleisha Cederman has turned in a number of tidy performances of late, while evergreen Melissa Edmonds-Whale can be relied upon to apply pressure on the circle edge. Hilary Jones is the energetic link through court while Abbie Cook gets through a power of work to deliver quality ball to her shooters, Megan Thomson and Kelsey Whiting. Waimea and Stoke have taken it to one another during the season and Thursday’s game is another that is more than likely to go right down to the wire.

This summary is made to fulfil the purposes of Sections 83(1)(a)(ii) and 89 of the Local Government Act 2002. The summary contains details of the Statement of Proposal to replace the existing Tasman District Council Consolidated Bylaw Chapter 3 Control of Liquor in Public Places Bylaw 2007 (existing Bylaw). A. Changes from the existing Bylaw in general terms relate to the areas covered by the liquor ban in Brightwater and environs, Collingwood, Kaiteriteri and environs, Mapua and environs, Motueka and environs, Murchison, Pohara and environs, Richmond and environs, Riwaka and environs, Takaka and environs, Tapawera and Wakefield and environs. Changes are also intended to the times that the existing Bylaw is in force. Those time changes include a 24 hour liquor ban for the CBDs in Motueka, Richmond and Takaka, and for part of the year in Riwaka. The earlier start applied to the Kaiteriteri liquor ban area is extended to cover a wider period of the holiday season. Remaining areas have liquor bans commencing at 7.00 pm, compared with 9.00 pm in the existing bylaw. Change to the definition of “Public Place” is included to align with the definition in the Local Government Act 2002. Full detail of these proposed changes are contained in the draft Tasman District Council Consolidated Bylaw Chapter 3 Control of Liquor in Public Places Bylaw 2012 (the draft Bylaw). B.
