Homes raided for dog trackers Three homes were raided for illegal dog tracking collars last week, but a Nelson pig hunter says even that won’t deter him from using them. The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment confirmed to Waimea Weekly that it had issued three search warrants in Nelson-Tasman to obtain evidence related to the US-imported dog tracking devices, which it says have never been legal in New

Zealand. Although the MBIE confirmed the search, it refused to comment in much detail on the seizure saying it was not appropriate as the evidence may be used in prosecution. Some tracking devices are illegal because they operate on the same radio frequencies as people travelling and working in rural areas, such as forestry workers, Department of Conservation rangers, and search

Phillip Rollo Reporter and rescue crews. It is illegal for anyone else, including pig hunters, to use the frequencies due to the possibility of interference and the fact that other people are paying to use them.

But a Nelson man, who imported a collar and unit valued at $1400, says the illegal tracking collars were still being used by many fellow hunters because of the indepth GPS which shows where you are, and where the dogs are, in detail. “Pretty much everyone hunting uses these, even randoms I’ve met in the bush, they’ve had SEE PAGE 2

A big mini celebration

One of the world’s most famous small cars enjoyed a big celebration over the weekend, and fanatics from all over Nelson turned up to join in the festivities. Minis in Nelson Inc. honoured the birthday of their namesake on Sunday, marking the car’s 54th anniversary since its release to the public in 1959. Members of the 30 member strong club parked up at the

World of Wearable Arts and Classic Cars Museum to show off their rides. Decades of different versions of the pint sized car were showcased, and fans spent the day celebrating the “easy to fix” “great to drive” and “cheap to run” vehicle. The club is also busy organising the 19th Mini Car Club National Convention which it will host in October.

“It’s probably is a bit high. They’ll run out. Maybe like six would be reasonable or even five.”

“I think they should lower it slightly. We tend to over fish and if you catch six well that’s plenty, go out again.”

Motels to reopen, four months after flood

A Richmond motel is yet to reopen after April’s flood caused significant internal damage to most of its units, and its manager is worried the reputation has been suffered during the closure. Louis Hornell, who manages the familyowned Oxford Court motel, was helping guests evacuate on the night of the flood, with water rising as high as car bonnets. “It was a full house with a lot of overseas tourists who had never seen anything like this before. But we spent most of the night trying to evacuate guests, we kind of had to give up on caring about what was going to happen to the place,” he says. “Most of the guests couldn’t get their cars out and we had some guests we couldn’t get a hold of and their rooms had flooded and all their gear was flooded.” A good relationship with the motel association meant that guests were able to find other places to stay at short notice,

Photo: Phillip Rollo. but once the night was over and all of the guests had been accounted for, focus turned to the clean up and getting the business back on its feet. Louis is still amazed that four months have passed since the flood, considering the motel is yet to reopen. “The next day when everything was calmed down we

had a look at the place and just realized that our business was basically gone.” He says the insurance company certainly didn’t help during the process, stumping up little financial support to compensate for “business interruption,” and forcing the motel to stay open and take online bookings, despite there being no accommodation for guests. “The insurance company weren’t going to pay us a cent until we physically had someone come to the place and then for us to tell them we can’t take them. Most people were okay but some were annoyed.” The motel is likely to reopen in the next few days but Louis says its reputation has been hit. With a lot of sports teams and groups using Oxford Court on a regular basis, Louis is now worried that sending them somewhere else might not bring them back. “It’s been so long and we turned so many people away.”

Homes raided for dog trackers FROM PAGE 1 them too,” he says. “It shows all the ridges, the contour lines, extra roads that you can go down to get closer.” And when asked if news of the seizures would stop him from using him, the man says he would instead find other ways to get around it. “I’m never going to stop using them. They’re just way too valuable.” Just last month, pig hunter Conrad Adams told Waimea Weekly that Radio Spectrum, who control the licensing of radio frequencies, needed to change its attitude towards pig hunters and come up with a positive solution instead of criminalising “good guys” who simply want to hunt. A spokesperson from the MBIE says the frequencies can be used for emergency calls and has been designated for use by landmobile radiotelephone users for the last 30 years.

Are the snapper happy fishermen too greedy? There’s plenty more fish in the sea for now at least, but will a quota rise deplete the stock? Prime Minister John Key argues that the snapper quota debate is more talked about than the controversial GCSB Bill, as many condemn the idea of being restricted to a three snapper maximum catch off the North Island’s East Coast. But one Nelson fisherman thinks our recreational quota is too generous, and it’s about to become even more so. The Snapper 1 fishery zone currently allows for a daily catch of ten snapper tops in the Challenger Area. In the Marlborough Sounds, however, it only allows for three. But with an apparent abundance of snapper in those historically vacant waters, the Ministry of Primary Industries is proposing to lift that quota to five, which has rocked the boat of the president of the Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club. Doug McKay wrote a personal submission after reading the proposal and says many more of his club members did the same. While those opinions may have differed, Doug remains certain that anyone seeking more than the current

Power bills ‘just too much’ NEWS Andrew Board

in brief

GOOD VIBES: 773 jumps were made above Motueka during Skydive Abel Tasman’s Good Vibes Festival. While two days were canned due to wet weather, including a family fun day, organisers are still labelling it a success. Good Vibes started 12 years ago and is the largest skydiving event in New Zealand and features international skydivers, including one from China. “It’s an event for skydiving to promote skydiving,” an event spokesperson says. It was attended by a mixture of instructors and hobbyists. OOPS: In last week’s Waimea Weekly we incorrectly named Footie Signs’ website in a feature on the Brightwater business.

Waimea Villagers ready for court battle Residents of Waimea Village left a confidential meeting with their lawyer on Sunday stating they were upping the pressure in their battle with the owners of the village, Michael and Carolyn Wright. The meeting was held to discuss the residents’ court action against the Wrights over a repair and replacement fund that should have around $330,000 in it. Residents believe the money, which they have paid from their levy payments, is not in the account and the Wrights have refused to release documents to prove otherwise. The residents are going to court to have the

fund managed by a board of trustees and say the Wrights can’t be trusted with it. Another issue that is on-going at the village is the massive levy increases. In 2010 the monthly levy fee was $80 per month. That has been upped to $125 and then $186.76. The Wrights are after another increase, this time to $304.52. That is likely to end up in arbitration with the residents rejecting the proposed increase. Several aspects of the levy proposal have caused concern among the residents, including the addition of one-off court and arbitration costs, which once added can never been taken out due to a ratchet cause

Steak thief dressed like a cow A male wearing a cow “onesie” was spotted stealing porterhouse steak from Raeward Fresh last week. The incident, confirmed by Nelson Police and the store manager, occured at 4:10pm on Friday. A male, wearing the onesie, entered the store with two other people, stealing the porterhouse steak from the meat section. The trio left in a red car, although witnesses were unable to catch the registration in time. The store manager, who did not want to comment in much detail until owner Justin Blackler was back from annual leave, says staff were alerted by a customer who spotted the shoplifter in action. Because onesies are not an uncommon item of clothing, police say the allegded offender was “probably not intending to look like the beef they were stealing”.

He declined to say what was talked about but did say it was in relation to the court case. “I can say the residents are more united and more in tune with each other now than ever before.” The latest meeting comes after residents have complained of more “strange” behaviour from Michael Wright. Some residents told the Weekly he refused them entry to the village’s hall – owned by the residents committee – unless they signed a piece of paper. Michael has also called the police numerous times on residents and those connected with them, although not one charge has been laid due to the complaints.

Appleby readies for popular school fair The final touches are underway to ready Appleby School for the most popular school fair in the region. Set to be held on Saturday September 7, the first fair of the gala season looks likely to be another successful one – if tradition has anything to go by anyway. The Appleby School fair made a record $41,000 last year, which was put towards partially paying for one teacher’s salary and subsidising out-of-class trips. Principal Graham Avery acknowledges the fair’s success but says there were many factors that contributed to it, including the timing and the unique country flavour.

“Being the first fair into spring is part of the equation but the main reason is it has developed a reputation of being a goodie,” says Graham. “There’s a fantastic range of attractions for kids and adults.” But because of the success Graham says there is a bit of pressure to always go one better each year. “But we try to keep it relaxed. The organising committee like to have a bit of fun with it and that’s why people come back year after year.” This year’s fair will include all of the favourite games and activities from previous years, with the addition of a ride on a digger, and shoot the hoops with the Nelson Giants.

More retailers join Appleby coolstores come down Gibbons development A cafe, a sushi shop and a green grocer will be joining the new Gibbons Holdings retail complex in Richmond and they should all be open before Christmas. While most people will recognise the site, situated across from the Richmond Mall, as being a future home to The Warehouse, Kmart and a new Couplands store, Waimea Weekly can confirm that Aki Sushi, Benge & Co Green Grocers and Columbus Coffee will also open there, with Gibbons Property’s Louise Devine labelling it as a “one stop shop”. The collection of smaller retailers range in size from 50m2 to 320m2 and will be located along the front of the boulevard in front of the main building, she says. A smaller 400m2 two-storey build-

ing will be based on the Queen St frontage but is without a tenant at this stage. Louise says a mixture of businesses has been paramount to achieve the vision for the site, and it was certainly not a first in, first serve basis. “Retailers are really keen to be a part of this project because it provides a one stop shop,” she says. “The complex will be fresh and new, stylish design, provide value for money and conveniently located within the Richmond CBD. “ While The Warehouse is not due to open for another 11 months, Kmart is nearing completion and will be handed over for a fit out by Kmart. There are currently 60 men working on the site at present and only local contractors have been employed.

New Zealand Hops in Appleby has taken down a set of five coolstores from its premises, and will build bigger and better ones before the next hop season. The coolstores, which were visible from Main Rd Appleby, were not conducive to forklift use, and operations manager Warren Amos says they had passed their used by date. “The main coolstores were probably from the 50s or 60s. With the growing crop we need additional space,” he says. And while a number of buildings are being brought down across the district because they are earthquake prone, it was not

Police review service Dale’s beer goes from home Nelson Police are currently in dicussions regarding a proposal that could change the way it deploys staff. It is hoped the review will result in faster responses to calls for service in rural areas, such as Wakefield. Communications manager Barbara Dunn says there has been some confusion from the public regarding the

proposal, which could see one less Wakefield constable based outside of the current two-man station. “With mobility devices there is less requirement for staff to return to the station, however our current deployment model has police officers in the Richmond area 24/7,” she says.

brew to commercial gold In 2009 Monaco computer programmer Dale Holland thought he’d have a go at making his own home brew. His extraordinary journey from a novice to winning a gold medal at the recent NZ Beer Awards in just four years has surprised him as much as anyone. Dale quickly found a passion for making his own beer and in 2010 he made 15 litres of what he thought may be Belgian Pale Ale. He had never tried one before so decided to enter it into the New Zealand Home Brew Awards to find out from judges if it was or not. What happened next came completely out of the blue and set him onto a path as a commercial brewer. Dale’s drop was not only a Belgian Pale Ale but it was so good he won the overall prize for best beer at the awards. After the win his beer featured as a special brew at Sprig & Fern taverns as he had a strong relationship with its owners Dave Barrett and Tracy Banner. After its success he decided to launch his own label and start making commercial beer. He called it Dale’s Brewing Co. He has since managed to get his four brews into supermarkets (and as luck would have it,

Earlier this month he won a gold medal for that very same beer at the beer awards, an incredible achievement considering his brief stint in the industry and the fact that only 41 beers out of the 541 entered, won gold. He says it’s been unbelievable. “It’s been a whirlwind, from brewing 15 litres of it at home to now brewing 4000 litres of it each time is crazy.” Dale was far from the only local to win at the awards with

This Week

Just a thought... Recently my wife and I found ourselves waiting on the side of the road for a little over an hour while work was carried out to repair it. Slowly one by one being joined by other cars and a couple of trucks, we had no idea whether it was going to take five or 15 minutes, but as time went on and checking my watch a few times, concern slowly turned to the meeting we needed to attend that was getting closer. Why do we have to wait? What is going on? Why can’t they just open the road and let us through? Concern for being late to our meeting disappeared when we got into roadside conversation with others who were also being held up, in fact what could have been a frustrating time turned into a time of a bunch of strangers having pleasant conversations together in the sunshine on the side of a beautiful Gold-

en Bay road. We were all going somewhere but all stranded together until the road was reopened a little over an hour later. A similar event just a week or so earlier after the mishap of falling down some stairs we found ourselves sitting in the very busy A&E at the hospital, sitting with four others who all had injured their left ankles or legs, waiting to be seen by a doctor. As we waited at first feeling sorry for ourselves, soon to sharing stories of how we each obtained our injuries, even feeling like best friends we hobbled out together on crutches again sharing our stories – quite a contrast to waiting for the traffic to clear and some clown in a car behind blasting on his horn to hurry you up. In today’s world where everything almost seems instant, instant puddings,

instant food, instant photos, instant replies to texts or emails, so often we expect things to happen instantly as we live life to the max. I wonder how many opportunities we miss because we are always in a rush? How many conversations could we enjoy instead of rushing past each other? While we ask the question, what are we waiting for, we also need to ask what the rush is, and for that matter do we even know where we are going. The Bible tells us Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no one goes to the Father but by Him, Jesus is our hope, have you stopped to get to know Him. Life is important, life should be enjoyed but do you know where you are going because your eternity matters too, so why not stop by your local church and find out who Jesus really is?

Brightwater Community Association Andy McQueen - chairperson The BMX track at Lord Rutherford Park has recently had an additional coating of clay. We had a visit this month from Damian Stones who is a track designer and keen BMXer and runs a design firm called Bikeworks. Damian is going to prepare a concept plan for us to look at, when this is available we will hold a meeting on site with bikers and park us to see what is available and affordable. We wish to thank all of you who submitted ideas and concepts for the Village Green and especially those of you who volunteered to

help in its construction. These proposals are now been looked at. The whole area is being tidied up and vehicle access to the rear of the shops will soon come off Starveal Street instead of Ellis Street. Did you feel the earthquakes last week ? It is a good reminder to be prepared and our sympathy goes out to our fellow Kiwis in Seddon and surrounding districts. If you have any ideas on how we can support them you could come along to the next meeting of the Brightwater Community Association on Tuesday 3rd September at 7.30 pm at Brightwater School. All residents of Brightwater are most welcome.

DON’T BE SUCKED IN Are you sick of telemarketers and pushy salesmen endless harassing you at all hours to put in a heat recovery system? Don’t be fooled, flashy adds and celebrity spokesman doesn’t mean you are getting the best for your dollar, in fact you could be spending thousands more than you have to. Breaking the Myth, what is a heat recover system? Positive Pressure ventilation systems draw fresher, drier air into your home from either the roof cavity or outside. This air is then passed through a high efficiency filter and introduced into your home. This introduced air forces out the moist, stale air that causes condensation, mould and mildew. This dryer air makes is then easier to heat, making your existing heating more efficient. There are a range of options when choosing a system, from basic to elaborate systems that include heat transfer systems or even intergrated heat pumps. This Spring why not talk to Rowan Dron Electrical first. Rowan and the team have been installing positive ventilation systems for years and will give you straight up, honest advice about what will suit your house best. Ask about their hypo allergenic filters that reduce pollen in the air.

Talk to Current Generation about installing a solar system that will keep your money in your pocket. Current Generation is an alternative energy business locally owned and operated by Arny and Michelle who have been in the energy business for 8 years. They have lived off the grid on Jackett Island

for 10 years and Arny has over 30 years engineering and electrical experience. A grid tie or grid connected solar system is an alternative power system designed for homes, where they are still connected to mains power (or grid). The system provides a way for you to produce your own electricity that can be used directly in your home to power lights and appliances thereby reducing your electricity bill. During the day when your system is creating power, you use free power, saving what you

would have normally paid to your power company and reducing or eliminating your electricity bill. At night when your panels can’t produce electricity, you draw your power from the electricity network in the normal way. When the system is generating more electricity than is needed, for example during the day when no one is home, your power company pays you for the surplus. Each electricity retailer has their own terms and conditions for PASCOE buying excessSTREET, 129 electricity and the price that they offer per kilowatt hour

Flashman If you are building or renovating, then start as you mean to go on and say no to a leaky home or building. For strong, durable cladding and flashing systems and the peace of mind that comes with them, talk to Flashman, the kiwi owned business built on years of weathertightness experience repairing and correcting the effects of bad building practice and the use of inferior materials and flashing practices, that together have caused billions of dollars damage to as many as 80-100 thousand homes throughout the country. Flashman is a fully NZ owned nationwide team of industry veterans who specialise in the design and installation of premium quality, durable, highly innovative, weathertight Cladding and Flashing Systems that have been BRANZ Appraised and tested to hurricane conditions of 232Kph. Flashman offer high performance weather tight systems for homes across the Nelson, Tasman, Marlborough and Buller regions. Their cladding and flashing systems are based on sound building and scientific principles which have proven reliable and trustworthy over many centuries in buildings all over the world. Their low maintenance exterior alu-

minium and flashing systems offer timeless weatherboard cladding that won’t rust, rot, crack, twist or warp. With no need to paint and unlimited colour options in both bright and dark colours, the opportunities are endless and the low maintenance products save you a fortune in scaffold and regular painting costs. Flashman offer Bevelboard and Dualboard cladding systems (Dualboard can be fixed horizontally or vertically hence the name). Both of which offer either an architectural or traditional, classic look without the repetitive and costly maintenance care required of weatherboard, ply, fibre cement or plaster finishes. With a 100 Year serviceable life, both systems lend themselves to residential and commercial buildings and result in a strong, clean, modern look with seamless joints for extreme weather tightness. A whopping 50% of leaks found in leaky homes occur at the window or door cladding junctions. The owners and inventors of the patented Flashman Flashing System have traced many of these leaks to the widespread use of sealant as a means of flashing. Many homes constructed today are still using sealants as the main method of flashing.

Before an installation by Flashman... Flashings are basically steel, aluminium or other metal or durable materials that prevent water ingress at a junction or join in the roof or exterior walls. Windows and door openings are the most vulnerable aspect of any building. If water can’t get into these joints, the structure will be weathertight. Sealant is not a long term flashing alternative. Billions of dollars in home repairs and rebuilds bear this out. Homes and other structures without

...and after. robust flashings of sound design and durability have an exponentially higher chance of “Best Practice” flashing design and installation. Their cladding and flashing systems are sealant-free, resulting in a robust, good looking, long-term, complete exterior cladding and flashing systems that simply won’t let you down. While the Flashman reputation is nationwide their values are still local and that is why so many Nelsonians trust Flash-

man when it comes to building or renovating their homes. Their Nelson team (backed up by a national head office) provide Nelson, Tasman, Marlborough and Buller regions with expert design, fabrication, installation expertise and advice in all areas of exterior cladding and flashing, providing peace of mind through avoidance of future leaks and structural damage. Visit for more information.

Low maintenance exterior aluminium cladding system Timeless weatherboard cladding that won’t rust, rot, crack, twist or warp BevelBord is a COMPLETE cladding & flashing SYSTEM which combines unsurpassed weather tightness with classic, ageless design. The BevelBord cladding system is designed, fabricated, installed and warranted (only) by Flashman. What are the benefits of Aluminium cladding over timber and fibre cement weatherboards? • Won’t rot, twist, crack, warp or suffer from resin bleed. • Doesn’t need painting. • Low maintenance – clean with a hose. • Low life cycle cost compared to other claddings - not just the initial cost but the ongoing cost of painting every 7-10 years. • Lower scaffolding costs than with painted claddings. Because the cladding is prepainted with durable powdercoating, the scaffold is removed immediately after the cladding is installed. • No extra time spent painting and re-scaffolding in order to repaint every 7-10 years. • Traditional, classic look but with none of the repetitive and costly maintenance care required of weatherboard, ply, fibre cement or plaster finishes. • Lends itself to residential and commercial buildings.

• Strong clean modern look with seamless joints for extreme weathertightness conditions. • 50 year minimum durability. • 15 year Product Warranty. • 10 year Installation Warranty. • Aluminium is available in a huge abundance of supply and is easily produced and recycled. The choice of aluminum is a responsible environmental decision. • No reliance on sealants. When Flashman Products are used you enter a Sealant Free Zone. • Permanent material. • The life of the cladding will outlast the building in most cases.

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

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

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

How does double glazing work

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

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

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

14 Gladstone Road, Richmond & 34 Street Vincent St, Nelson

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

You’ve heard they’re all the rage, but what exactly are the benefits of L.E.D lighting? • Highly energy efficient - Use around one tenth of the power of a normal light bulb • Long life - can last in excess of ten years • No heat loss - sealed unit, doesn’t get hot causing energy loss or fire risk • Easier to fit fittings for each room in your home, taking into consideration the way you want each room of your house to function, from the garage all the way through to the kitchen. With so many options on the market, it can be hard to pin point exactly what lighting you need in order to get the best results, so ask Steve about the different styles available, including L.E.D lighting, a popular, energy efficient method of lighting your home. While Steve Burton Electrical continues to thrive, Steve’s son Chris Burton has joined the family business after several years in the workforce.

A strong, resilient community Rev. Martin Harrison

Think of those suffering from the Seddon earthquakes. Who will we call when things get rough? The biggest asset we have is our community. By getting involved in one of the many groups active in the community; the community association, Church, School, sports groups, Scouts, Fire Force, and many

others we can help create relationships and teams of people with skills which can achieve far more than individuals. Not only is a strong resilient community great to live in but it also helps us to look after each other in the present but also prepares us for the event of a disaster and how we can respond and rebuild the community and people’s lives.

Fishing with

Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club The 2013/14 Dawnbreakers Fishing Club season gets ready to kick off on October 1. Some big changes to the club over the last two years has seen membership steadily growing and it looks like it’s not going to slow down for the next 12 months. A change in venue for the Tasman Bay Cruising Club will see our once a month club day Sunday afternoon socials, in the heart of the Nelson Marina. The club season extends eight months from October through to May, with prizegiving in June. Boat fishers, kayakers, jetskiers, land based anglers, divers and fresh water fisher folk are all welcome with senior men, ladies and junior sections to enter. While there is a certain amount of competition between members within the club, you are more than welcome to join us, just for the social side of the club. We hope to encourage more families into the club by having our club day starting time at 3pm and going until 5pm. There will be a sausage sizzle, raffle and our usual fish of the month awards along with a “bugger” award. The club has had some excellent speakers in previous seasons and social events that gave talks on things like boating education, MFish (now MPI), commercial fishing, the rescue helicopter as well as club members giving informative talks on different fishing techniques, what gear to use and how to set it up. These proved to be very popular and will continue for this season. The other big change for the club is a shift from weight per kg for club points to length based. This is in line with the club’s efforts to promote catch and release fishing as well as only taking enough for a feed. It has always been a concern of the club having its members taking breeding size snapper so they

can weigh them in for club points when many of the members said they would have preferred to release them. We took this on board and have changed to a length based system where a member can catch a 9kg snapper, take a picture of it on an official measure board then release the fish. Photos would then be emailed into the weigh master and a point per centimetre system will decide who has the biggest fish and most points. The club calendar last year included trips away to Okiwi Bay, French Pass and Havelock and will be repeated again this year all going well with the weather. Last season also used local charter boat operator Seabird charters for those club members that don’t have boats big enough to get up to D’urville Island so they can have a taste of some of the hot action the area offers. We have found Barry and Lynley Bird excellent operators that have given our club members some great fishing experiences. This season we will also be having some club outings targeting areas closer to home like Rabbit Island, Abel Tasman and Cable Bay, for those in smaller boats wanting to learn the ropes with other members. Also another benefit of belonging to a club is that some weekends guys go out and find a certain bait or area is working better than others and as a club we can share that information to members, so everyone benefits. But you need to be a member to get this up to date information. • The club will be holding an Open Day on September 8 at the Tasman Bay Cruising Club starting at 3pm. The DBFC invites all existing members and anyone interested to come along and join the club on open day. Contact club president – Doug McKay - 027 243 0110.

If you’re spending less than you earn, use your budget to work out how much you can put aside each pay to improve your financial position. We call this ‘paying yourself first’. If you’re spending more than you earn, use your budget to see where your money is going. Then see if there are any ways you can cut your spending or increase your income. Your budget needs to be accurate or it won’t work. Give yourself time to get all the information you’ll need, including: • A record of your day-to-day spending. Keep receipts from your shopping, and gather up bank statements and bills from the last three months. These will show regular expenses like rent, mortgage, hire purchase, credit cards, phone, power and insurance. • A list of annual costs. Think about things you pay for less regularly like vehicle licensing, medical expenses, gifts and holidays. • Your income details. A list of any money you get such as your pay, benefits or allowances, NZ Super or interest

earned on savings. • Savings. Details of any regular savings you make. • Budgeting isn’t just about watching your spending. How much you earn also affects whether you have money left over for saving or paying off debt. • Why you need to grow your income • If your income doesn't grow you’ll effectively earn less each year just because of inflation. So when you're planning your finances, don't forget to include goals for growing your income. • Know what you’re worth • Do you know what someone in your position with your experience and skills should be earning? Does your employer? • To find out what you're worth, read the situations vacant in your local paper or check out the online job sites. You could even contact some recruitment agencies to find out what a similar job to yours is currently paying. If you need help making a budget, or if you are having trouble making ends meet, contact a budget adviser. Biz Rescue Ltd There are myriad reasons why businesses struggle or fail. The effects of such struggles are not limited to the business environment but impact on the emotional health of the owners, their relationships and families. So if your business is in this worrying situation one thing is clear – it’s time to get your “head out of the sand” and face reality. This will involve asking help from your accountant. If their contribution has been limited to annual accounts it’s time to get them more involved with diagnosing the problems and brainstorming solutions with the aid of cash flow forecasting etc. “Where there’s a will there’s a way” - if both the energy and strategies are present there is a future for your business.

Bank’s customer first focus brings better banking to Nelson TSB Bank was set up in 1850 on the principals of self-reliance and independence. And 160 years on, those principals are still true today. It has grown into New Zealand’s largest and strongest independent bank. It’s been a great success story, but not one without its challenges. Back in 1985 the government proposed to merge all of New Zealand’s twelve independent banks into one big one. They delivered an ultimatum – get in line or be doomed. TSB Bank decided they didn’t want to throw away 130 years of independence. They knew it wouldn’t be in the best interests of their customers. The pressure to merge was intense – from the other banks, and the government. TSB Bank stood firm. The merger went ahead without them. But within a few years it faltered and was sold off to a big Aussie bank. How did it work out for TSB Bank? They went from strength to strength – with customers from Cape Reinga to Bluff, to all corners of the world. They’re still making their own decisions. Still giving customers the kind of care and attention they’ve always been known for. Putting customers first is as important to them today as it was nearly 28 years ago. As far as they’re concerned, it’s just a better way to bank.

100% New Zealand owned Not having overseas owners means that they can make decisions based on what’s best for their customers. So if they want to NOT charge you cheque, ATM1 or EFTPOS transaction fees, it’s up to them. Having real people on the other end of the phone when you call? That’s their choice too.

Customer first philosopy TSB Bank has been rated highest for customer satisfaction in the banking category over and over again. Most recenty they were awarded Canstar Blue’s 2013 ‘Most Satisfied Customers in Banking’ award which questions Kiwi’s on their satisfaction with their Bank across seven categories. It’s hardly surprising when you consider their amazing customer service record. So what’s their secret?

Their friendly staff can answer all your queries in person Monday to Friday, 8.30am until 7pm. They’re so helpful in fact, they won the 2010 CRM Contact Centre Award.

Fees? What fees?

“We are guided by one key thought: what would we expect if we were the customer?”

TSB Bank have a philosophy of low or no fees. There are no cheque, EFTPOS or bank owned ATM* fees, on any of their accounts. So how exactly do TSB Bank make their money? The oldfashioned way – they earn it.

Strong financial performance

Where does your money go?

TSB Bank’s Managing Director/CEO Kevin Murphy says:

TSB Bank has just reported an impressive 10.6% increase in pre-tax profit for the last financial year. Their Capital Adequacy Ratio (an industry measure of financial strength), at 14.56% continues to be one of the strongest of all banks in New Zealand. Kevin says “We’re totally New Zealand owned and all of our funding is obtained from within New Zealand – we rely wholly on the deposit support of our customers.”

Convenient banking Wherever you are in New Zealand, or the world, banking with TSB Bank is easy. There’s an office right here in Nelson, on the corner of Bridge and Trafalgar Streets. If you can’t make it to TSB Bank’s offices, HomeBank is their Internet, phone and text banking service – you can access your accounts, make payments, review transactions and transfer money. [my]bank2, the Bank’s mobile banking

TSB Bank’s investment strategy has always been somewhat conservative, and largely home loan focused. As Kevin Murphy explains: “Most of our investments, up to 70% of our assets in fact, go into providing home loans for everyday New Zealand families. This has been our investment mainstay for over 100 years now, and it will continue to be so.”

Full range of accounts on offer TSB Bank offers a rewarding range of personal cheque, transactional, savings and investment accounts. Whatever you want to do with your savings, TSB Bank has an option to suit.

Taking care of all your banking needs It’s not just savings that TSB Bank does well. If you’re in the market for a home loan, TSB Bank takes a flexible approach - you can mix and match from a range of options to suit your finances and lifestyle.

Richmond book final spot

Nicky Rampton throws another accurate shot during Saturday’s semi final. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

The slate has been wiped clean as the finalists have been found for the 2013 Premier Final. Jacks OPD booked their direct route to Thursday’s final by coming through the third round unbeaten. The second placed team Waimea College and third placed Richmond Robbie’s Bar & Bistro battled out the semi final on Saturday night. Richmond had been crushed 73–43 by Jacks OPD in a deferred game played last Sunday night. To say Richmond was disappointed in the result would be an understatement. It was not one of Richmond’s better games however to give Jacks their dues, they did play extremely well. The huge loss provided Richmond with some “fire in their bellies” when they met Waimea to decide the second berth for the final. Richmond took the court with intensity from the first whistle and their desire for the coveted finals berth was evident. Richmond played a strong defensive game, with each and every one of the players contributing. Contrary to their usual team rotation policy, Richmond stuck with their starting line

Carol Cook

Netball Reporter up for the entire game. Richmond played with patience and control, and the numerous tips were often converted. It was the third period when the game went Richmond’s way, as Lisa Book and Nicky Rampton were on fire, shifting out to a nine goal lead. To their credit, Waimea dug deep to finish well and although they won the final quarter they were 45–53 in arrears at the final whistle. Now all eyes are on Jacks OPD and Richmond for Thursday’s final. Jacks will go into the game as odds on favourites, therefore all the pressure will be on them. Richmond on the other hand have played some mediocre netball in the first two rounds. Jacks coach, Robyn Leonard would never say they will be fine, however she concedes her players have peaked at the right time. They have been building consist-

ently, and knew in advance that they wanted the direct route to the final as they had a number of players unavailable if they had to play a semi. She knows she has three accurate shooters in Ani Waitai, Leanne Cook and Chelsea Brooks, and there are numerous options in the mid court. The defensive end has recently added a formidable defender in Janita Numa. Jacks plan will be a simple one – stop the ball before it gets to Richmond’s circle. Jacks play a tight defence through court, and any ball won needs to be converted. The key to Richmond’s performance will be that of Nicky Rampton at goal attack. Nicky has been supplied an abundance of stress free ball from Hilary Jones and Lisa Book, while goal shot Kathleen Thornalley has put in sound performances of late. Here’s hoping for a spectacular finale to the 2013 season – game begins at 7pm at the Alison McAlpine Health & Fitness Centre.

Pines go for two in a row The kings of the court, Solly’s Nelson Pine are off to Auckland to regain the national volleyball club championship it won in a thrilling five setter at the Trafalgar Centre last year. With the bulk of the squad returning for another season, including three New Zealand players – one being 2012 tournament MVP Patrick Shone – and being coached by Nelson’s coach of the year Colin Redpath, there is an air of confidence in the Nelson Pine camp that title number two could be claimed in Auckland this weekend. But where exactly that Nelson Pine camp has been based during the competition build up is one of the unique scenarios faced by the South Island’s top team. With ten of the 12 players calling themselves Nelsonians, it’d be easy to overlook the fact that most of them are situated in different corners of the country, including four based in Wellington. But the lure of the blue jersey and the goal of a second championship have been strong enough for them to return for another season. “The logis-

tics are always a challenge but we develop all these fantastic players and in the past other countries in the past have benefited from that. Now that we’ve managed to fundraise some money and get some good local support we can put a Nelson team together with the best of the best,” says coach Colin. “It’s a juggling act but it works and having Patrick who is the best setter in New Zealand and Ben Glue who has just returned from playing professionally in Jordan means we have a core group of players to play around.” Colin believes 2011 champions Sparta, who were beaten by Nelson Pine in the final last year, are likely to be there or thereabouts again this year, while another three Auckland sides pose enough fire power to make them all contenders. “Standard is a bit higher but we’ve had a good season.” Molten Nelson Women will be competing in the women’s division while the Nelson Pine Saplings will compete in the second division, the latter having narrowly missed out on the top 12.

Murchison has won back-to-back division two rugby championships, successfully beating Waimea Old Boys in Saturday’s tight division two rugby final 12-11. Murchison scored two tries to one in the match, but also went the entire second half without scoring a point. Murchison’s tries came courtesy of centre Bruce Andrews and halfback Sam Bradley, the latter being converted by David Gill. Despite going the entire second 40 minutes without a point, Murchison’s resolute defence was enough to hold out Waimea Old Boys, who were gunning for a club treble with its division one side and women’s team both winning championships. Mike Huxford, who along with co-coach D’Arcy Grooby will be stepping down, says there was not much between the sides. “Both teams wanted to win it and both teams were well prepared before the game,” says Mike. “I didn’t think the win was in the bag until the fi-

nal whistle. But I thought we were the better side at the end of the day.” Having beaten Wanderers in last year’s final as well, Mike says title number two is the sweeter. “To get two in a row is a big feat but the fact it was just so much closer and it was more competitive, so it meant more to win by just one point.” And the result also means a lot to the community. “It’s huge for the town. There had to have been 500 people on the sidelines watching and out of that 500, 400 would have been from Murchison.” But whether Murchison has the squad to go for three championship wins in a row is another question, as a lot of its players move in and out of town due to employment, and although he is stepping down, Mike was adamant that the core would stay together and push for another winning season. “The boys were talking about going for three in a row. But I’m stepping down. We sort of made that decision last year but got dragged back into it. But this is definitely it.”
