High rates halt ‘vibrant’ CBD entrance A plan to revamp the entrances of the Richmond shopping district has been put on the back burner by Tasman District Council. The work has been deferred by TDC in its draft annual plan in a bid to reduce the finanical burdon on ratepayers. In last week’s Waimea Weekly it was revealed the proposed rate increase for ratepayers will be around seven percent. For Richmond Unlimited, the marketing arm of the Richmond business community, the news is another setback in its attempts to bring more business into town. “We’ve been pushing for the gateways for some time and we’ll continue to push for it,” says Richmond Unlimited chairman Andrew McGlashen. Council had planned to undertake a project to improve the entrance to Richmond and the central business area in the next financial year. The cost of the project was estimated at around $412,720. Coun-

cil is now proposing to defer the work until the 2012/2013 year. Having significant gateways into communities is important according to Andrew, and vital for retailers. “Unfortunately with the road layout if you’re not knowledgeable of the area a lot of tourists do end up bypassing us.” When you look at the money initially budgeted for the upgrade, Andrew says Richmond Unlimited can see why council would need to make cuts to spending and why it would need to be planned for. “As I see with the health budget, it’s not a bottomless pit.” Tasman mayor Richard Kempthorne says council needed to identify spending areas that could be cut to keep the rate increase down.“It would have been nice to do it but we needed to cut discretionary spending.” Richard says council intend to keep the project on the list and it will get done in the future.

ALL SET: Vern Powell and Bill Wheeler are hoping they can do battle at the Oakwoods Village Scooterkana today. Photo: Teresa Hattan.

Ready, set, go... scooterkana takes off The fists aren’t likely to come out in this battle, but you never can tell. Today, if the weather permits, Oakwoods Village will be hosting their annual Scooterkana. The event is based along the “streets” of the village and is aimed at those in the care facility and the villas. Vern Powell has been a resident at Oakwoods since 1989 and he says he loves participating in the Scooterkana. But this year his daughter is visiting, so Vern isn’t sure if he will be able to make it but he has decorated his mobility scooter just in case. The afternoon, as well as being skill based, also provides a lot of fun for the residents. Often a lot of preparation goes into creating the colourful

speed demons. Residents find they are able to dress their mobility scooters up with all sorts of things. Bright balloons and soft toys feature heavily, with the odd noise maker thrown in for good measure. Today the Scooterkana will feature a relay, a rally, an obstacle course, a slalom and a skills section. This provides variety for the residents, who are able to experience the rush of racing and also the ability to learn new things. These skills help the residents when they are moving about the facility and when they are out visiting. The day will finish with a “celebrity race” which sees staff race each other.

“The courses are a good idea. It’s not about the age you start driving, it’s about making sure they have the skills so they can drive well.”

“If they live in the country and need it that age [15] is alright, otherwise no. Courses would help but they’ve got to be taken out and taught, they can’t just jump in a car and go.”

“16 would be a more appropriate age. You’re more experienced when you’re that age. Doing a course would be a good idea.”

“Driver safety courses are a good idea and 15 is too young. Getting your license is something you need to achieve, it can’t be a given.”

NEWS IN BRIEF

Eat, drink and be merry at summer fare

* Tasman District Council’s Draft Annual Plan is now available for public consultation and feedback, prior to Council making any changes, as a result of the consultation, and adopting the final Annual Plan in June 2011. This can be done via the website at tasman.govt.nz or by calling into any of the Council offices. * Thirty-five firefighters battled a forest fire that burned about five hectares in the Moutere hills on Sunday night. The fire, reported just after 11pm, was deep in a 20-year-old pine plantation belonging to Hancock Forestry Management. Staff from the forestry company joined crews from Upper Moutere, Mapua and Motueka volunteer fire brigades, as well as Appleby and Tasman rural fire forces.

READY TO GO: Murchison Playcentre children Jay Thomson, 4, Ryan Elliott, 4, Caelan Siobhan, 3, and Ortwin Struve, 4, prepare the 4WDs for their trip up the Glenroy Valley. The Playcentre was able to raise $650 on the day and would like to thank Guillym and Donna Thurlow who gave permission to use their property.

At least two Tasman District councillors and other notables are fronting up to be pilloried - and they say it’s all for a good cause. Proceeds from games at the Last of the Summer Fare, on this Friday, will go to the Red Cross Earthquake appeal, and since the theme of the food and drink festival this year is medieval, the “games” will include a set of stocks. Plenty of laughs will be on hand as those who have put their hand up to be padlocked in and pelted with wet sponges include Tasman District councillors Kit Maling and Judene Edgar, Richmond Mall manager David Hill, Andrew McGlashen of Richmond Unlimited, and Waimea Week-

ly's very own Steve Page. For the price of a gold-coin donation, fare patrons can also take part in apple bobbing, horseshoe throwing, skittles and other games. The Richmond event also features a Lords and Ladies fashion parade, and prizes are up for grabs for best medieval costumes. All those attended are encouraged to drag out their wimples, ruffs or old sack cloths and be in with a chance to win. Well-known band Cutty Wren are set to provide the music this year. The fare, made famous for its fantastic food, drink and entertainment, starts at 5.30pm in Sundial Square, Richmond. The event caters for all the family so make sure to get along early to catch all the action.

Letters to the editor I was interested to read your story containing quotes implying that Nelson City Council’s rates rises were due to cuts in core spending. Nothing could be further from the truth – as even the quickest examination of our draft annual plan will show. The reduced capital expenditure reported was simply that our Long Term Plan had projected the construction of the proposed performing arts centre (and which was under formal consideration at the time of putting the plan together two years ago) proceeding in this coming financial year, which obviously it isn’t. Clearly the two Councils have quite different ways of reporting their rates levels which leads to some common misunderstandings over comparisons between the two. Some basic (unarguable) facts might aid a better understanding. A good way for readers to think about this is that on a per capita basis, actually, there really isn’t very much difference at all between the two Councils in terms of the level of rates being paid; ratepayers in both Council areas are paying around the national average. There is, though, a considerable difference in the debt owed by the two Councils: as at 31st December 2010, Nelson City Council debt levels stood at $42m compared to the Tasman District Council debt at $118m. I hope this goes some way toward helping to understand any comparisons drawn between the two Councils. Quite simply, for the record, Nelson City Council is currently proposing the lowest rates and charges rise in 20 years in Nelson and that arises mainly from an array of ongoing savings in interest rates and other operational efficiencies. Keith Marshall, Chief Executive, Nelson City Council

DANCE MAD: Two Nelson dance crews, as part of Onset Hip Hop, won awards at the recent SDNZ Wellington/ South Island Championships. Both Origin and Fuzion crews, which included from back, Abbey, Ashleigh, Georgina, Hannah, Kendall, Abi, Lisa, Tyler, Bridie-Rose, Mikaela, Hayley, Courtney, Meila, Jordana, CJ, Lucy and Kayla, came back from the competition with placings.

Dance crew secures a ticket to nationals Two Nelson dance crews have proved they can boogie with the best of them. Origin and Fuzion, two crews from Onset Hip Hop based at Fargher Academy of Dance, placed in the top three at the Street Dance New Zealand South Island and Wellington championships earlier this month. Lisa Dalziel, 17, is a member of Origin dance crew and says their result was a huge achievement. Origin missed out on first place by 0.01 points in the hotly contested varsity section (13-17 years) with a score of 7.29. The Wellington team that took out the varsity section, Emerge, represented New Zealand at the World Hip Hop Championships last year and are currently ranked ninth in

the world. Origin has been together for two and a half years and train around three times a week. Lisa says being involved in hip hop is a lot of fun, but it isn’t easy. “We train hard but play hard. It’s always good going to a competition knowing you’ve worked hard and you can get the rewards from working hard.” The team will now be working towards the nationals held in Auckland early next month and their fundraiser concert on April 6. This concert is being held in the Broadgreen Intermediate Hall from 7.30pm. Children and students tickets are $5 and adults are $8. Tickets are available from info@origincrew.com.

Gliding club season has a soaring start Nelson Lakes Gliding Club is having a soaring season, starting with 'Flying Week' in mid February where pilots from all over join the local boys to fly the great mountains of Nelson Lakes National Park. On February 27 club pilots Jerry O'Neill and Frank Saxton ran a concentrated six day training course at St Arnaud for six new people - four of whom went solo by the end of the course. This was followed by a 'Gliding Open Day' coinciding with the Classic Boat Show at Rotoiti. Twenty five trial flights were made that day giving the public a taste of the thrill of gliding. The winch-launch is pretty exciting as it takes the glider to 1700ft above the strip in under a minute. Two more open days are to be held at Motueka Airport on April 30 and May 1 and will give more locals a chance for a glider flight. Club President Jeremy Glasgow and April Rumsey assisted at the training course which included safety briefings, flying training and lectures and videos. Course participants completed approximately 20 flights and were able to log about five hours flying time. Each student was given at least a one hour soaring flight in the mountains to show what the sport is about. These courses dramatically reduce the time required to go solo and reduce the cost by approximately one third.

Got NEWS?

Jerry ONeill also runs two cross country flying courses. One is a basic course generally run at Hororata that is aimed at people who have yet to do a Silver C 50km flight. This course teaches the basic safety skills like flight preparation and planning, out landing techniques and how to choose suitable landing paddocks from the air. The other is an advanced course and is run from Omarama. This is a combined mountain flying and cross country course and is aimed at people who want to do a 300km Gold C flight. The main thrust of the course is to teach people READY TO GO: Nelson Lakes Gliding Club chief instructor Rob Corlett, how to fly gliders safely in the mountains. from Mapua, gets ready to go flying.

Express lane a hit with customers The aromatic smell of coffee now wafts through Richmond Fresh Choice. The new coffee cart, Express Lane, has been well received by customers according to owner Gary Watson. “It’s a good thing because of the convenience for customers. It also provides another experience while they’re shopping in the mall,” says Gary. Barista Stefan Miller says he can provide customers with nice simple coffees and espressos. Gary says the cart is going well so far and management have decided to bring in special deals for their customers. “If they spend $100 in the shop, they will get a free small coffee as a thank-you.” Stefan will also be the smiling face customers see when the walk in the doors. “He doesn’t make too bad a coffee either,” says Gary.

Retirement isn’t in sight just yet Teresa Hattan Most people retire at 65, but not Athalie Gill. The Richmond resident has spent the past 40 years working in the same nursery. Athalie began her time at what is now Vibrant Earth under Cam and Doug Simpson on their Beach Rd property. She says she got the job after Cam looked down the row of houses backing on to the nursery and asked her because she seemed the only one who enjoyed working outside. “I just started by doing a bit of part time weeding but it wasn’t very long and I was in to taking cuttings and getting out orders.” Mary Duncan then took over at Beach Rd and before long was looking for a new property. This was found on Main Rd Hope. Athalie has since gone back to part time work. She says the best part about the job over the years is the variety. “I’ve done most things and I’ve really liked it all but now I mainly do dispatches.” Athalie says she would never have thought she would stay in the one job for so long. “I was thinking when I was approaching 65 ‘do I want to retire?’. It keeps me motivated, it gives me exercise and I enjoy it.” And it doesn’t look like Athalie will be retiring any time soon. The major change over the past 40 years for Athalie has been the upgrades with technolLONG SERVICE: Richmond’s Athalie Gill has been working at the same ogy. “When I started we used to do the potting nursery for 40 years and says she doesn’t see herself stopping any time soon. into the planter bags with a bin of mix and a fire shovel and then plant the plant, but now Photo: Teresa Hattan.

they’ve got a potting machine.” In those days there weren’t computers either and Athalie says these have made the world of difference. Mary says it’s wonderful to have someone like Athalie around. “Having the reassurance of having someone like Athalie there has been a really stabilizing and reliable thing for me.” Mary says with Athalie there she knows things will be okay. “One of the things that has always struck me about Athalie is that things are never a problem. She can immediately see the benefits. To have that beside you when you’re running a business is very valuable. I’ve got huge respect for the loyalty she’s given the company.” Mary says her committed employee is quite remarkable. “She’s a bit of an icon with various people within the industry who know her. There are a lot of qualities about Athalie that I think we can be quite envious of.”

Waimea Old Boys 2011

www.wobrfc.co.nz

Derby win against Nelson slips through WOB’s fingers at Neale Park Phillip Rollo One moment can make or break a game and unfortunately for Stables Waimea Old Boys it signaled a defeat against Galbraith Group Nelson in the opening round of the Car Company Senior A rugby competition. Down 17-15 with only seven minutes left on the clock, a James Lowe pass was intercepted with an awaiting overlap and the try line begging. Nelson's speedster Kim Bateman cruelly made Waimea pay, sprinting 70 meters to score, although James desperately tried to hunt him down after letting the game slip away. Andrew Goodman then put the icing on the cake with a 50 meter penalty on fulltime to seal the 27-15 victory. But Waimea captain Ben Coman says they can take plenty of positives out of the loss against the perennial favourites. “We’ve got a few new faces so for them to come together like that, I'm pretty happy. Although it wasn't ideal to come away without a win,” he says. Tasman Makos halfback Kaide Whiting was the star for Waimea and despite

picking up an early injury to his ankle he soldiered on for the majority of the game. His trademark sniping runs created plenty of opportunities for the away side and his try in the opening five minutes of the game put plenty of pressure on a Nelson side full of expectation. But a heavy tackle punishing his right ankle sent him to the sidelines early. He could be a huge loss for the opening rounds of the competition. James, Trael Joass, Andrew Leatham and Phil Gibson all impressed on debut in the backline and there were no signs of the missing experience provided by the departed duo of Blair Cook and James Kamana, the latter on Super 15 duties with the Lions in South Africa. A huge fight broke out midway through the second spell with number eight Lealoha Musika sent to the bin for punching. Ben says it's just boys taking out their frustration. “We don't condone it but we're not going to stand there and take it either.” Despite a defeat, Waimea can take confidence out of their first clash of the season with capitalizing on opportunities and a crooked lineout being the major concern.

THERE’S THE GAP: Ben Coman tries to slot through two Nelson players on his way up the field. Photo: Phillip Rollo. When Nelson's ever present openside flanker Mitchell Thwaites was yellow carded in the first half, Waimea were camped on the try line but failed to score. One moment that will play in the minds of Waimea overnight. “There was probably a few opportunities. We created the chances so we'll put some polish on it and come back at home against Stoke next week.” Half time score: 17-8.

Waimea Senior B’s

OFF THE BACK: Waimea Old Boys halfback Kaide Whiting picks the ball off the back of the scrum in Waimea’s season opener on Saturday. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

The Super Liquor Waimea Senior B’s had more luck than their fellow club men with a win over the weekend. Lead by prop Tim Hikuroa, Waimea dominated the match and staked an early claim to win back the division 2 title they lost to Marist in last years final. Nelson was unable to get on the board with a white-wash going all Waimea’s way and several players were able to cross the line twice. Try scorers were J Vailauv, 2, Ben Jeffrey, 2,

Mike Bates, 2, Callum Hart and Brad Crisp. Joe Higgins, Brad Crisp and Jaime Galloway successfully slotted the conversions. Unfortunatly for Nelson, they were really only able to get into their opposition’s 22 twice. The final score was 49-0.

Coming up for Waimea * This weekend sees the club’s first home game - Stables Waimea Thirds have a preseason game against Waimea College 1st XV starting at 12 noon. Following this are the Super Liquor Senior B’s at 1.15pm and the Stables Senior A’s at 3pm - some good rugby action at Jubilee Park this weekend. * Plenty of new players have registered for JAB, with the majority of last year’s coaches returning to coach - this all kicking off on May 7. Women and Thirds start the week before this, on April 30.

Always someone you know

Jelena now focuses on off season after knock-out

GETTING COURT TIME: Louisiana Techster and former Waimea College student Jelena Vucinic runs the floor in the NCAA tournament first round against Rutgers..

Phillip Rollo Jelena Vucinic made three steals in just two minutes court time as the Louisiana Tech University Lady Techsters crashed out of the NCAA tournament recently. Louisiana Tech were defeated 76-51 in the opening round of the tournament by Rutgers, and while the former Waimea College student will be pleased with her sniping efforts she was disappointed to be knocked out. “Mainly because we know how much better we were and we were disappointed because we couldn’t perform on the day. We might have not won but we knew that we could at least make it a much closer game than it was,” says Jelena. Jelena played 11 games throughout the season, an impressive tally in her freshman year. All told, Jelena made four steals and 1.3 points per game in the regular season.

19

The three steals against Rutgers was her season best. The NCAA tournament game was shown live on national television in the United States. The Lady Techsters program hit the 1000 wins milestone this season - only the second women’s basketball program to reach that mark after their Western Athletic Conference semi final victory over Nevada in Las Vegas and Jelena says that history making victory was her highlight of the year. She also marked Nevada’s top player Tahnee Robinson during the game. Jelena will be returning to New Zealand during the winter but she will now be finishing up her school year before getting back on the court for offseason training. “Now that I know what is needed to play at this level I feel I can come back ready to get into it.”
