Safer school journeys Fernridge’s walking school bus takes top award
Emily Ireland Cars reaching speeds of up to 85kmh past Solway Primary School last month shocked the community. So, what makes a posted speed limit of 80kmh past Fernridge School acceptable? Fernridge, a rural school just ﬁve minutes away from Solway Primary is making waves in road safety, recently winning
an award at a national level for their Walking School Bus initiative. But with a speed limit of 80kmh past the school, there’s only so much that can be done to keep their students safe. Principal Janine Devonport said she often raised her hands with despair while out on crossing duty. “How we have not had a fatality or at least a major
pile up due to impatience is beyond me,” she said. “It is just ridiculous.” Masterton District Council rural roading engineer Alec Birch agreed with the frustrated principal and said a permanently lowered speed limit at the school would be safer, “but a tricky one”. There is a bright yellow sign at each end indicating people go 40kmh when children are present. But Birch said the best way to ensure drivers did slow down was to
“squeeze the speed out of them” with road features like kea crossings. Kea crossings are manned crossing points which run before and after school hours and involve school patrol stop signs which swing out onto the road. “When the school is ﬁnished with its various ongoing construction, we will have a sit down to discuss safety options,” Birch said. “But we have to have a consistent policy across all the rural schools.”
He said a speed limit review was underway nationally which would evaluate speed limits on rural roads and limits around schools. For the time being, Fernridge will focus on celebrating their latest achievement in road safety. They were presented with a Golden Foot award in Parliament at the end of last month for their Walking School Bus initiative. The initiative, which kicked oﬀ a few years ago
was launched to combat “parents’ fears” of their little ones walking to school. It is a “safety in numbers” approach to young people learning to get to school independently and involves a group of new entry pupils meeting at a designated point on Upper Plain road and walking 1.2km to school together. The pupils, supervised by a parent or teacher, follow a path that runs alongside the 80kmh road. Continued on page 3

Smoke alarm proves to be a life-saver Hayley Gastmeier
A rude awakening at midnight on Saturday saved the lives of Greytown’s Kaye Patterson and her 10-year-old daughter, Ella. The high-pitched squeal of smoke alarms alerted her to the fact that the 100-year-old Horton St villa she rents was in ﬂames. The blaze completely gutted her kitchen and dining room, with the heat of the ﬁre destroying all possessions, and claiming two goldﬁsh in the process. “Just before midnight I woke up to hear the smoke alarms going, so I thought it was just the batteries going ﬂat. “But when I opened my eyes I saw a big haze in my bedroom and then I ran down to the kitchen where the ﬁre was.” Fireﬁghters believe the blaze started in a hot water cupboard, housing
the hot water cylinder, between the kitchen and bathroom. Patterson said adrenalin and past Navy training kicked in immediately. She yelled to wake her daughter, as the ﬁre spread at an alarming speed. “I grabbed my cell phone and the car keys for some reason and the house phone and called out to Ella to get outside. “I was calling 111 as I was running down the hallway and shut the hall door behind me, which [ﬁreﬁghters] say saved the bedrooms, so the ﬁre was contained to the living area. “The heat pump on the lounge just melted to the wall – the heat was that extreme.” The “close call” was surreal for Patterson and her daughter, who are shaken but relieved to be alive, along with their pet cat. Emergency services
Quick fire facts Wairarapa’s five major fire stations attended 90 structure fires last year, down from 118 the year before.
Structure fires attended Carterton 11 (2017), 20 (2016) Featherston 6 (2017), 10 (2016) Greytown 3 (2017), 3 (2016) Martinborough 14 (2017), 6 (2016) Masterton 56 (2017), 59 (2016) were “awesome”, responding within minutes of her call and treating her for smoke inhalation. Patterson is now urging
people to ensure they have working smoke detectors. “The smoke alarms deﬁnitely saved us, and I just changed the batteries. “If we didn’t have them, they reckon we would’ve been goners.” Greytown ﬁre station oﬃcer Harry Howard said ﬁve ﬁre engines were at the scene around midnight, with ﬁreﬁghters departing about 3.30pm. Windows were blown out aside from the “extensive damage” caused to the living area, and the rest of the house was smoke damaged. He said the ﬁre was thought to have been the result of an electrical fault. Howard said the smoke alarm not only saved two lives, it saved their home. “Because they were out on the road when we arrived and they were safe, it meant my crew could focus on putting out the ﬁre and saving the house.”

Walking to school engages kids’ senses Continued from page 1 Holly Hullena from the Wairarapa Road Safety Council said what stood out about the school’s nomination for the Golden Foot Award was that they had used a model of walking school buses which had been “predominantly used in an urban environment”. “I think that is a fantastic eﬀort for little feet. “Hayley Inder the teacher and mother at Fernridge School wanted to allow her students to walk to school and engage in the senses of doing so.
“What could they see, hear, smell, tasting the fresh country air. “She also wanted to encourage conversation on the way to school and allow a relaxing way to get their brains ready for a day of learning.” Hullena said as a result Fernridge was doing something “diﬀerent than other rural schools, and they are setting a precedence in Wairarapa for what is going to become a reality for more and more schools down the track”. She said the initiative had also eased congestion outside the school gate.
Devonport said she was not aware the school had even been nominated for the Golden Foot award until she received a nomination acceptance email. “I thought it was spam mail or that it had been sent to the wrong school. She said actually winning the award was “very overwhelming”. “It’s a massive partnership with the community and council, and it’s a whole lot of work that you just keep doing because it needs to be done – you don’t do it for the awards or recognition”.

Looking at life through the lens There’s so much more to the photography process than taking a pretty picture, and the latest exhibition at ConArt in Masterton is a testament to that. EMILY IRELAND stopped in to hear from three of the featured artists as they talked about their journey into photography.
When Wendy Brandon thinks about her early photographic influences, she thinks of her grandfather. “My grandfather was a keen photographer and had a beautiful camera. “I was always around my grandfather – I think he was my favourite person in the world.” Before Brandon was school-aged her grandfather bought her a Box Brownie camera as a birthday present and taught her how to use it. “The whole process of photography fascinates me. “Actually taking the photograph is kind of like the end of a much more interesting process.” Brandon worked as a lawyer for most of her life, but when she fell ill and took time off work, her passion for photography blossomed. She enrolled in a few photography courses in Italy and while staying in Europe ended up doing a workshop in London and attending an international photography festival. “I ended up spending eight weeks in Europe on my own, just immersed in photography. “After I finished the workshops in Tuscany and
walked out the gates, I felt as though I had been cast out of paradise.” Upon returning to New Zealand, a friend of hers suggested that she do a Master of Fine Arts. She gained entry to the programme on the basis of a portfolio and graduated this year. She is in the process of going back to do her doctorate. Brandon said her inspiration came from taking a break from the mundane to appreciate the beauty around us. “We all have days where we are just consumed by minute details: going to the supermarket, picking up children, all of this. “But sometimes, you’ll be in the midst of a busy day and you’ll just lift your eyes off what you are doing and you’ll see beautiful light, or a colour, or an object.” One of her photographs, which captured the reflection of trees and autumn leaves in a pond, was a finalist in the New Zealand Geographic Landscape section of Photographer of the Year. Brandon is also interested in places that are “about to disappear” due to roading projects or land development.
Dave Wood, of Featherston has been immersed in the world of photography for about 50 years. He remembers when, at the age of 21, his parents gave him a camera. “I was rapt and I’ve been hooked ever since”. In Wood’s first year of photography, he alternated between slide film and black and white film. One of his pictures exhibited at ConArt was taken in 1969. “I scanned this one from the original slide about six years ago and that’s the result. “I’ve spent thousands of hours in my spare time in between other work scanning my old slides and scanning my black and white negatives. “It’s quite timeconsuming – you can automate it and get rubbish results or you can take your time and get much better results.” Wood said he has scanned about 5000 of his slides, and about 6000 of his black and white negatives. One of Wood’s favourite parts of the photography process was working the dark room. “Working in the
dark room was always something that gave me a real thrill. “It was a magical experience – not only developing film, but developing the prints in the tray and watching the image slowly appear.” Wood recalls spending “ages” analysing the slides and working out filtration, “and you couldn’t assess the photograph until it was properly dried which was 10 hours after you’d done it, and then you realise, bugger, I should have had a bit more yellow in there, so you start again”. “These days of course, you can print it and immediately see you’ve done it wrong, so you do it again straight away. “Things have changed so much.” When asked whether the instant process took the fun out of photography, Wood laughed and said, “no”. “It’s just a different kind of magic – a more convenient magic to be able to do it in such a quick time.” Next year will mark 50 years since he got his first camera. Dave Wood’s work can be viewed at www. davewood.nz.

Lian Hathaway works fulltime as a designer. She started dabbling in photography because it was something she had “a bit of control over” – “I wasn’t working to someone else’s brief”. As she pursued her photography, she began to build up quite a portfolio of images, but wasn’t sure what she would do with them. “I started showing my photos to a few friends to get some feedback. “The feedback I got was, Wairarapa photographers all take photos of the same things; that same Greytown shed, that same old house on the hill . . . so I tried to look for things that were just ordinary that could be anywhere and I took photos of them.” Then, Hathaway started to think how she could frame the images, “so they weren’t just a photograph on the wall”. “I found a couple of these old mirrored frames that people used to frame photographs and pictures in, and they fascinated me. “When I started taking these frames apart I discovered that the stuff behind the pictures was

just as interesting. “I found old advertising material, old newspaper articles.” Hathaway collected more and more of the old mirrored frames from second hand stores and would remove the mirroring and and frame her own photographs in them. “You feel bad when you go to an op shop and buy someone’s wedding photo because you know someone has spent hours creating this to make it special and you pull it apart. “I had a lot of guilt about the fact I was taking apart someone’s life.” Hathaway’s guilt has led to keeping the old photograph, and a range of papers that were used to back them in the frame. One piece of paper used as a backing was a clipping from the Wanganui Herald of a scantily-clad woman with the headline ‘Keen gardener’. Hathaway said her framing process of her photographs was a point of interest about her work “because we’re all a bit sick of the Warehouse stuff”. “If you can reuse something and repurpose, it’s good.”

Long service recognised When it comes to long service, two stalwarts of the Masterton branch of the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services Association take some beating. Last week Joan O’Neill, 95, received a RNZRSA Merit Award and certificate marking 50 years of service in the district – though she has been a RSA member for 64 years in total. Her record includes being a committee member in the women’s section from 1964-1980, president from 1980-87, treasurer from 1993-2006. She remains a committee
member. Not that awards are anything new for her – she received a certificate of service in 1990, life membership in 1995, life membership from the women’s section of the RSA in 2000. In 2006 she received civic award from Masterton District Council for her work which, outside the RSA, also includes work with Kindergarten Wairarapa, Lansdowne School PTA, and providing flowers in hospital. Bob ‘Bukit’ Hill, a relative youngster at 75, is national vice president
and received a RNZRSA Gold Star and Certificate marking his work. Hill is a veteran of campaigns in Malaya – Bukit is Malay for Hill — Borneo, and Vietnam, and joined the RSA in 1972 in Hawera. Moving to Masterton, he joined the local branch in 2005, became president in 2009, serving in that role until last year. He was elected to the national council in 2012, and became national vicepresident 2013. He remains a committee member for the Wairarapa branch.

Hadlow farewells its principal Elisa Vorster Hadlow School students, teachers and parents joined together last week to farewell its principal of 22 years, Michael Mercer. There were plenty of smiles coming from the well-respected principal during the assembly, saying the students’ special farewell was “lovely”. “I’m prepared, I’m ready to go,” he said. Mercer announced his intention to retire last year and had plenty of time to prepare for his farewell, joking yesterday that his handkerchief was for his runny nose and not his tears. The assembly was a mixture of amusing anecdotes and poems about Mercer’s online spending, his love of fine wine, his arguably fat cat named Pinot, and his incredibly large collection of shirts and shoes. There were several musical acts from the
students as well as former secretary, Yvonne Rhodes, writing her own rhyme about Mercer called ‘the ancient educator’. In it, she joked about Mercer’s side job of unblocking drains and climbing up ladders to retrieve stray balls from trees. He was also referred to by one of the students as “a little quirky at times” as she spoke of the row of motion activated toys in the window of his office – a challenge the students took upon to regularly try and set off. Mercer joined the school when someone told him in passing they thought the school would close within two years, and he could not resist the challenge. He stepped into the role of deputy headmaster in 1987 and would later become principal in 1996. He took the school through the integration process and catapulted it into the limelight when it

teachers from around the country visit to get a glimpse of the modern retrofitted spaces. Hadlow board member
“He has moved Hadlow forward in terms of classrooms, Hadlow are way ahead of the game,” she said. Mercer had lived on the school grounds throughout his career at the school, although it wasn’t required, and would be retiring to his first home which he built in Masterton. Register referred to Mercer as “dedicated and passionate”, and was always involved with the students’ activities, even on his days off. “He attends all the kids sports at the weekend and goes down to Clareville and Colombo to watch them.” To commemorate his time at the school, a brick wall with a plaque was unveiled at the school sports field. The school’s new principal, Andrew Osmond, will begin at the start of next term.
160 council workshops we know little about Elisa Vorster In the past 18 months, district councillors across the region have met 160 times behind closed doors at workshops – but there is no public record of what they said or did. The number of workshops since the start of 2017 far exceeds the number of ordinary council meetings in that time, with Masterton District Council holding 48 workshops, South Wairarapa District Council 43, Tararua District Council 35, and Carterton District Council 34. Full council meetings are generally held on a sixweek cycle, meaning there would have been about 12 full council meetings each. Mayors and officials are adamant that no decisions are made at workshops, but former Masterton
mayor Bob Francis believes councillors should be aiming for maximum transparency. Carterton Mayor John Booth insists his council had “no secrets” and workshops were merely a tool for councillors to clear up any confusion, in order to make the correct decisions. Masterton Mayor Lyn Patterson is similarly clear that workshops were “not secret squirrel stuff”. Tararua Mayor Tracey Collis said her council had used more workshops in the leadup to its Long Term Plan due to the level of information and education required for the councillors to make informed decisions. “I’m happy to take that slowly so we have all the background and a good understanding,” she said. Collis said workshops
were very helpful but the need for a council to be transparent was key to building confidence amongst ratepayers. “Debate needs to happen in a public forum, so people know councillors are asking the right questions.” The Office of the Ombudsman warns against excessive use of workshops which may make people “suspicious and unhappy” and create the perception of a predetermined decision when it is brought to a formal meeting. Current legislation does not define rules for conduct of workshops. Councils are not required to record minutes, provide agendas or make them open to the public or media. Local Government New Zealand confirmed it was
unlawful to make decisions at workshops or to even agree on a course of action to be voted into effect at a following council meeting without debate. Masterton District Council [MDC] acting chief executive, David Hopman, said workshops had been helpful to ensure councillors received all the information they required, especially in preparation of an LTP. He emphasised that “none of the Long-Term Plan decisions were made during workshops”. However, MDC had last month excluded the public from deliberations on its LTP submissions which meant key changes to the plan were not immediately available to the public. At the time, Patterson said the process would be improved, but the matter had not arisen in the past
as “no public wanted to attend”. However, Taxpayers’ Union executive director Jordan Williams said this was not an acceptable excuse. Such practices were “extraordinarily secretive”. “We’re very concerned – we have come across decisions not being properly minuted which would otherwise be subject to public scrutiny,” he said. Patterson said along with LTP information, workshops were used to provide newly-elected members with training and induction. Councillors also required briefings on policy changes coming from central government. “There is a lot stuff coming from central government – the three waters review, the roading review,” she said.
“There is a lot of heavy policy stuff — councillors need to know about that, and they need to understand that.” Francis said while he agreed workshops were useful for strategic development, councillors should be pushing for work to be done in public. “I’ve been a great advocate all my life of open meetings and doing as little as possible in public excluded.” Wairarapa Voice representative, Ron Shaw, said he had noticed the use of workshops had become commonplace. “They use it to make sure the hard stuff is taken out of public view. “Council meetings are more of a rubber stamp.”

A hot dilemma for scientists PHOTO/GETTY IMAGES
The immediate aftermath of 911 created a change in the physical environment in North America. All planes, about 4,000 odd, were grounded for three days. In Wisconsin, climate scientist Dr David Travis had been researching whether vapour trails made a signiﬁcant eﬀect on the climate. Travis noticed that the sky seemed unusually clear. Was this an opportunity to see if there was an eﬀect? Fifty years earlier, Dr Gerald Stanhill was in Israel measuring solar radiation for their national irrigation system. The volume of water
Mike Osborne required was aﬀected by solar radiation. Twenty years later he went back to validate his measurements but was shocked to ﬁnd a huge drop of 22 per cent in solar radiation. The sun hadn’t changed, something else had. When he published these results, they were considered implausible and ignored by the scientiﬁc community. In Germany, Dr Beate
Liepert was ﬁnding a similar phenomenon over the Bavarian Alps but was sceptical about her ﬁndings as they appeared to contradict global warming research. In Australia, Professor Graham Farquhar and Dr Michael Roderick were studying pan evaporation rate. Standard sized pans were ﬁlled with water around the world every day and topped up the following day to the same
level; the top up amount measured evaporation. Despite global warming and the expectation that increased temperature would bring increased evaporation, the reverse was happening. Pan evaporation rate has been in decline worldwide. Farquhar and Roderick studied this and came up with a surprising result. Temperature was less important for evaporation than humidity, wind and sunlight. Of those, the amount of sunlight was the most important. They discovered research papers on the reduction in solar radiation and wondered if
VRX 7 SEATER 4WD
there was a link. Some calculations later, they found the reduction in solar radiation levels at ground levels correlated to the observed reduction in pan evaporation levels. It was starting to make sense. Further research indicated that high altitude particulates from burning fossil fuels changed the composition of clouds so they become more reﬂective – hence less solar radiation reached the ground. This phenomenon was named “global dimming”. Back in Wisconsin, Travis was measuring the eﬀect that the complete absence of air traﬃc might make in a three-day
hiatus. Expecting there to be a minimal change or no detectable change at all he was shocked to ﬁnd a rise of over one-degree C in such a short time. What does it all mean? If the combustion of fossil fuels is eliminated the temperature goes up. If not eliminated, the temperature still goes up. It’s a dilemma for scientists and policymakers and it can’t just be dropped into the too hard basket. • To keep up to date with Mike Osborne, visit his Facebook page, Mike Osborne – Wairarapa Midweek.

Plant Your Own Healthy Orchard Now
It’s an exciting time of year here at GardenBarn – our new season Fruit Trees are here!
Winter is the best time to plant your fruit trees. Partly because the best selection is available now at GardenBarn, but also because planting now gives your tree a few months to “ground” itself before summer kicks in. A strong root system enables the plant to fight pest & disease & absorb moisture & nutrients efficiently - it’s basically the plants lifeline.
Home grown fruit will make it more enticing for the little people to eat fresh.

WHAT FRUIT TREES TO PLANT?
MOON PLANTING TIPS THIS WEEK
PEACHES & NECTARINES: These are truly the essence of a long hot summer day and all varieties of peaches and nectarines are self fertile. The trees don’t tend to live as long as apples or pears, but they can last for 10-20 years. Peaches & Nectarines come into fruit three years from grafting, so plants purchased from GardenBarn may only need a year in the garden before they start providing fruit. DID YOU KNOW: genetically there’s not much difference between peaches and nectarines; nectarines have just had the “fuzziness” bred out of them!
PLUMS: Great for the home garden as they are very tolerant of most soils. The choice can be overwhelming sometimes but if you want to make jams or sauces the acidity & intense flavour of Damson is ideal; or for an eating/all purpose plum try Black Doris. Many plums need pollinators although there are a few self fertile varieties.
NASHIS/ASIAN PEAR: They seem like a cross between an apple and a pear, but the true Asian Pears are actually a species of their own. Nashi are heavy croppers that can grow into quite tall trees. They need to be cross pollinated and for the true flavour need to be tree ripened.
July 11 – 14: Increasing vitality, time to prepare soil for high growth period ahead. Do not sow or plant yet. July 15 – 25: 11 days of prolific growth for above ground crops (avoid sowing root crops). Liquid feed with ican Fast Food. Sow flowers. Divide & repot houseplants.

They’re self fertile but produce better when a pollinator is nearby.

All aboard restored Tram 17
Ten thousand hours over four-and-a-half-years has seen the completion of Gladstone couple Greg and Ali Lang’s biggest restoration project yet – the last surviving tram from Wellington’s original 1904 electric tram fleet. The Langs run The Wheelwright Shop and said the project had been “a big part of our lives”. Tram 17 entered service when electric trams were introduced in Wellington in 1904, and used on various routes around Wellington, including Oriental Parade, Island Bay and Karori. It was withdrawn in the mid-1940s, and then served as a holiday bach in Jeep Rd, Raumati South. But was in a dilapidated state when it was donated to the Wellington Tramway Museum, based in Kapiti’s Queen Elizabeth Park, in 1986. It was stored undercover in the museum until 2014, before a conservation plan was created in recent years which led to The Wheelwright Shop winning a tender for its restoration. Greg, who is a Carterton District councillor, said it was “totally satisfying” to see the tram being removed from the work shed. The biggest challenge was due to the fact most of the tram had degraded, and pieces were missing. “Back in the day there were only grainy photos taken of the outside and none of the inside,” he said, making accurate restoration a challenge. There was a lot of fabrication of the tram with help from a couple of contractors. The tram was a catalyst in the change of tram seating after a conductor on Tram 17 died in 1913 after he fell out of the tram as

it travelled along Oriental Parade. In those days, there were no aisles in trams preventing internal movement by passengers or the conductor. An act was then passed through Parliament that required all trams to have aisles. Tram 17 committee chairman Keith McGavin said it was a mammoth project because there was so much to do. New parts had to be made, old parts restored, and identical parts from

restoration projects. Early last year, one of their creations was at the forefront of the latest Whittaker’s toffee chocolate promotion videos. The cart was a replica of the cart Whittaker used in the early 1900s. Another highlight was the restoration of the Wellington Cable Car “Grip Car No. 3” which is now in the Wellington Cable Car Museum. The Tram 17 was trucked from Gladstone back to Kapiti last week, before cranes lifted and lowered it

onto a support base at the park, and it was pushed into the museum. The tram will be a static display at Wellington Tramway Museum for a while until it becomes operational again. The restoration cost about $350,000, with funding coming from Lotteries, various community trusts, and donations from the public.

12 Wairarapa Midweek Opinion Wednesday, July 11, 2018 EDITORIAL
Walking school bus impresses Piece of mind
Emily Ireland Fernridge School’s walking school bus should be a leading example for all schools. A handful of their students are involved in the initiative, and another portion of students travel independently to school. As well as grabbing an opportunity to get a bit of exercise in before and after school, the kids are basically set up for a productive day of learning. And it turns out independent school travel is almost a normality for many other students, with a Midweek poll on Facebook showing that only 68 per cent of parents drop their kids off to school by car or bus. The remaining parents say their kids get to school by walking, biking, or by other independent means.
Unfortunately, as a kid, I was on the car drop-off side of the spectrum. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure my mum would have loved it if I had walked to school – we did only live 10 minutes away, but I was just not a fan of walking places – it scared me! It also didn’t help that I had (and still have) a terrible sense of direction. The thing is, parents are busy people. Some hardly have time to drop their kids off at school, let alone walk their kids to school each morning and walk all the way home just to do it all again in the afternoon. So, the idea of having a supervised walking school bus is something that really appeals to me, and something that would have probably been

the motivator to get me walking to school each day. You’ve got a parent or teacher supervising, and a whole group of kids to hang out with on the way. There’s also safety in numbers, which would have made the trip a lot less daunting for my younger self. And while there may be walking school buses running in many schools in Wairarapa and around New Zealand, it is Fernridge School’s that impresses me the most. It’s a rural school, and the trek up the path isn’t next to an easy-breezy road. The speed limit is 80kmh in parts. But nevertheless, the school persevered and with the help of the community it has made the journey as safe as possible for its students. The years of work have paid off, and I am excited to see what initiatives are yet to come from the school.

Did this bacon advertisement cross the line? This ad for a Carterton bacon company was recently dumped after it was criticised for making light of statutory rape. Advertising firm Contagion
created it as part of a campaign with a “wake up and smell the bacon” tagline. Others included, “My kids do swimming, French, piano, ballet and
tennis. But we’re not competitive”; “The boys will love a vegan fry up”; and “There’s an innocent reason he deletes his browser history”.
alright as 16 and 27, but 15 is just carny.

Lisa Laursen Distasteful of the age difference. Different if it was not 15. Colleen Elle Amy Parker I get the joke, and I don’t think the age difference is an issue but the fact that it’s 15 and 27 is a bit yuck. My partner and I are 10 years apart – 22 and 32 sounds fine, but 12 and 22 doesn’t. Cath O’Driscoll Would have sounded semi
a big miss. Jo Waitoa-Hall Pretty terrible campaign. Might need to hire a better advertising agency. How did no one notice the glaring issue here. Beth Copland There is ‘edgy’ and then there is poor taste. The ad is in very poor taste. I trust that the bacon tastes okay . . . not that I will ever know as I am vegetarian. But I know
that one way the company could make recompense would be by improving their employees’ terms and conditions in recognition of their contribution to the profitability of the organisation. After all, their employees don’t go to work simply for the pleasure of handling dead animal carcasses; they do it so they can ‘carry home the bacon’ for their whanau!
Do you really think you are a good driver? With reference to your article on ‘Concern as crash rate rises’ (July 4) and in particular the poll of 83 Facebook users of which 94 per cent consider themselves a good driver. My experience of driving in the Wairarapa area would indicate that a number of those polled do not actually understand what a ‘good driver’ is.
So, if you: Speed up when you get to a passing lane preventing others from passing; Do not use ‘Stopping Bays’ on the Remutuka hill to allow faster moving traffic to pass; Apply your brakes before your indicator when you know you are about to turn;
Do not indicate at roundabouts; Use a mobile phone when driving (ever, even just once or twice); Sit on someone’s rear bumper because you want to go faster than they are going; Think that going faster than the speed limit is actually going to be of significant benefit to you;
Generally show a lack of consideration for other road users. Then, next time you are asked ‘Would you consider yourself a good driver?’, you should consider your answer more carefully. Phil Ashworth Featherston

Wall and Wall These two portraits of John Francis Wall and Lillian Margaret Wall were painted in England in 1934 by John Mansbridge (1901-1981), an established portrait painter and later an official war artist. ‘Frank’ Wall of Mahaki Farm near Martinborough was well-known for his flax milling factory and his assistance with the establishment of tramping tracks in the Tararua Ranges. He is the Wall after whom Wall’s Whare, west of Carterton, was
named. Frank had been on an extended visit to Europe and Britain, and after his wife died in Paris, he met and married Lillian before returning home. These oil on canvas paintings were gifted by the Wall Family via the Wairarapa Archive and are currently on display in the show ‘Face Time’, at Aratoi, until August 12. • Each week, Aratoi Museum of Art and History in Masterton showcases an item from its public collection.
New Zealand’s rivers Can we learn from history? That is the question environmental historian Dr Catherine Knight will address in Masterton next Wednesday in a talk about rivers. She said many New Zealanders feel a sense of urgency about the state of our fresh water. “Last year the issue of ‘swimmability’ attracted controversy. “It became an election issue, and the new government made big policy promises.” Dr Knight is visiting Wairarapa to provide context to the fresh water debate. “I shall explore the complex and often conflicted history that humans have had with rivers since they first settled in Aotearoa New Zealand. “If we want to improve our environment and our socio-economic wellbeing, we need to know our history.” She said New Zealand has strong institutions and legislation dedicated to managing our environment. “Over the last 30 years New Zealanders’

awareness of environmental issues has increased, and our ability to participate in environmental decisionmaking has grown. “But the latest reports on our environment show that our biodiversity is in decline, our greenhouse gas emissions keep climbing and our waterways are still deteriorating.” Dr Knight’s book New Zealand’s Rivers: An environmental history was long-listed for the Ockham New Zealand Book Awards and selected as one of the Listener’s Best Books for 2016. Her book Ravaged Beauty: An environmental history of the Manawatu (2014) also won awards; and her third book,
Beyond Manapouri: 50 years of environmental politics in New Zealand, was released in May. Dr Knight works as a policy and communications consultant and lives with her family on a small farmlet in the Pohangina Valley, in the Manawatu. She has a passion for the environmental history of New Zealand and has also published extensively on Japan, where she lived for six years. She gained her first degree in Japan and her Masters and PhD degrees at Canterbury University. Catherine Knight will present her illustrated talk, ‘New Zealand’s rivers’, to a meeting of Science Wairarapa at 7.00 pm (note early start time) on Wednesday 18 July at the Education Centre, 22 Dixon St, Masterton. All are welcome; a door charge of $4 will apply. New Zealand’s Rivers: An environmental history (RRP $49.99) and Beyond Manapouri: 50 years of environmental politics in New Zealand (RRP $39.99) will be available for sale (cash only).
Benjamin Apricat is a little cat with a big purr. With his close-set eyes, he sometimes looks like an old man – so we named him after Benjamin Button, the man in the movie of the same name who ages in reverse. It’s pretty obvious why he’s called Apricat! He also has a very fetching bushy tail. Benjamin is about six months old and was rescued in Carterton from living the desperate life of a feral kitty by his very kind foster carers. Benjamin is a little timid and his new owner will need to be patient until he gets to know them. He likes other kitties, is gentle with kids and likes babies – as you can see from the picture. He is also feisty with Lego! Master Apricat has been desexed, vaccinated, and is up-to-date with flea/worm treatment. His adoption fee is $140. If you’re interested in Benjamin call Lee at KittyCat Rehoming Wairarapa on 021 0843 8935 or email kittycatrehoming@ gmail.com

A memorable part of the day was the burial of South End School’s first “Waka Huia” (time capsule). This was as a result of a Year 5 Reading Group (BETA), who read an article on a Hawera School who also did this at a previous Matariki celebration. The Waka Huia will be lifted in 2043 and holds memories of students from South End School past and present. Special recognition to Whaea Tina (our South End Taonga) and Mario (our school caretaker) who ensured the Waka Huia was placed with aroha and dignity. Additionally, as part of South End’s Matariki tradition, a fruit tree was

planted. This was planted by the school’s eldest and youngest students, Oceana and Moon. In the evening, a special celebration with parents and whanau was held. Following Kapa Haka
performances, they were joined by the South End Kindergarten and went on their hikoi with our Matariki Lanterns. Following the hikoi, whanau enjoyed hot soup and bread to complete a lovely day.

The moon threatens Venus Sky Watch
Nick Sault This week is a good chance to see the first and second rocks from the sun in the same part of the sky. Mercury joins the brilliant Venus in the north-west just after dark. Mercury hits maximum elongation tomorrow night. It means that you are viewing the planet at its maximum separation from the sun. This naturally means that tomorrow it will spend its maximum time in the sky before setting, and so it is a good opportunity to catch the elusive planet. Normally it is so close by the sun in the sky that it is washed out by the evening and morning twilight glows. Like Venus, Mercury is a morning and evening “star”, depending on which
side of the sun it is on from our viewpoint. But it hasn’t got the presence of Venus. Also, Venus has a greater elongation because it is the second rock and has a much wider orbit than Mercury. This week will be a good opportunity with both up there after dark for you to get a mind picture of the fact that Mercury is swishing around the sun on the inside track of Venus. And, of course, they are both swishing around on the inside of the third rock (us). Also, keep fingers crossed for a clear night Monday the July 16. A very new moon will be sitting right by Venus. In a clear sky, it should be a spectacular view. Mercury will still be

there, but between Venus and Mercury, the bright star Regulus will join the band of highly visible objects. On these nights, do not confuse Regulus and Mercury – they are similar brightness. Mercury will be much nearer the horizon than the star and will be the first to set just after 7pm. If you are viewing close to the ranges, Mercury will disappear sooner
than that. Finally, the piece de resistance – all five visible planets at once – well, six if you count the one underfoot. Get somewhere in which you can see the whole horizon and between 6.30pm and 7pm, look in the south-east. Mars is rising and has been getting brighter by the week. Turn you head a little towards north and you’ll
gaze past Saturn. Further north still, and nearly overhead, you cannot miss brilliant Jupiter. Then of course, you have Venus and Mercury at the north-west, as mentioned. Five planets at once. It doesn’t get better than that, except when we get a comet passing by. So, next week let’s check where our Christmas comet is at present.

A meaningful life at Kandahar Home
Row your way to fitness Midweek Musings
Tim Nelson Lakeview School principal Tim Nelson endeavours to learn something new every day by reading books, listening to podcasts, and engaging with a wide range of other content. 30,000 Days
Drew Houston is the founder of Dropbox, one of the world’s most used online storage systems. When giving a commencement speech at MIT he shared the number 30,000 as being one to always consider and be conscious of. The relevance of the number is that, on average, we have 30,000 days in our lives, not a huge amount as a number, so it’s important to make the most if every single one of them, as opposed to letting them slip by as we wish our lives away in anticipation of an event or experience. As Goethe has stated ‘nothing is worth more than this day’.
Things can be fixed
Great advice from business mentor Marie Forleo who believes that everything can be fixed – she has a saying ‘everything is figure-out-able’. By this she means that, regardless of what has happened, things can be rectified. This puts her in a position of power – instead of dwelling when things go wrong she will immediately set about putting a plan in place to make things right. Almost all things can be fixed, we just need the will and drive to make this so.
Adopt a school
Marc Benioff is one of the
most successful software developers of all time, right up there with Bill Gates and Larry Ellison. When asked what he would like to promote to others his suggestion is to adopt a school, any school. The process for doing this is very simple . . . go to your nearest school, walk into the office, ask to see the principal, then ask the principal how you can help. There are so many ways in which a school can benefit from volunteers; coaching a sports team, listening to children read, helping in a fundraiser . . . the opportunities are endless, and your contribution will be hugely appreciated. My door at Lakeview School is always open for such visitors and I know the same will apply to principals of any other school.
Row your way to fitness
Aisha Tyler is a successful actress, director and presenter, a person who doesn’t have a lot of spare time on her hands. While this idea may not be for everyone, it certainly works for her, the idea being to row her way to fitness. In 2001 she purchased a rowing machine that she is still using 17 years later. She uses this to do her workouts without having to leave the house, using her workout time to binge watch TV series, so is able to justify her TV watching habit by doing something that is healthy and life enhancing. This is an example how fitness can be achieved and maintained in a way that is effective, enjoyable, and time efficient.
Don’t follow the pattern of becoming dumber Fast Company recently published an article that highlights the fact that the average IQ has started to decline for the first time. I understand that IQ isn’t everything in terms of
what we can do, but it is an objective measure of what we know. I, for one, value the acquisition of knowledge and strive to learn new things every day, as opposed to knowing how to simply find things out (a skill I also value). It doesn’t have to be one or the other, as I have previously shared, we need to do both; acquire knowledge and know how to go about doing so. Let’s start trying to raise the average IQ, starting with ourselves.
Clean up your mess and others will follow
Recently, Japan became the very first team from Asia to beat a South American team in the World Cup Finals, with a hard earned 2-1 victory over Columbia. Equally impressive was the behaviour of the Japanese fans after the game, they cleaned up theirs mess in the stadium! Columbia’s fans who saw this followed the example of the Japanese and also started picking up their rubbish. This shows the power of setting a good example and the influence it has over others to also make positive choices.
Don’t always do what everyone else is doing
I watched a YouTube presentation from photographer Sean Tucker, posted after he had just got to 100,000 subscribers (he has since added a further 25,000 in a relatively short time). The thing about Sean Tucker is that he has achieved his success pretty much doing the opposite to what many consider to be essentials for YouTube success; he doesn’t post often, he doesn’t share ideas about the tech surrounding the subject he is primarily passionate about (photography), and his clips aren’t enhanced by the sort of editing and music that is seen in the work of so many other successful content creators; he simply does his own thing in his own way, not compromising on his beliefs and values, to create fabulous content that is enjoyed by a growing audience.
Kandahar Home recreational team member Nicole Parkinson makes Maori bread with resident Heather Maranui. Enliven’s Kandahar Home prides itself on helping elders stay connected to the things which matter most to them. For Kandahar Home’s Heather Maranui, that means keeping her ties with Maori culture. “I grew up on a marae and I was also the kaikaranga [female caller] at my local marae for many years, so it’s been a big part of me,” she explains. For Matariki last month, staff helped Heather make Maori bread for the other residents to enjoy, something she used to do often as a child. They also decorated the home to mark the occasion. Among Heather’s assistants was recreational team member Nicole Parkinson, who says helping Heather was a great opportunity to learn more about her early life. “It was a great chance to just talk to Heather about what she used to do when she was young and get to know her. “The other residents were also interested in learning more about Matariki and trying some Maori bread, so it became something everyone could enjoy together,” she says. Home Manager Peter Newman says the home’s emphasis on finding out what makes each resident tick stems from its commitment to Enliven’s elder-centred philosophy.
“The Enliven philosophy is all about giving residents a voice. Whenever a new resident comes in, we sit down with the elders and their families to learn about how we can support them. “We also emphasise to new residents that they’re in control and that we’ll do everything we can to help them find their feet here.” In recent months, Kandahar Home residents have been sighted heading out on van tours around the Wairarapa region together, enjoying drinks at the local pub, and having a boogie with dance students from nearby Makoura College. “It’s wonderful when we see residents making the most of every day and just enjoying life. “At the end of the day, when it comes to providing great care, that’s the only measure which truly counts,” says Peter. Enliven’s Kandahar Home, located on Roberts Road, Masterton offers rest home and hospital care, respite and health recovery care, and a day programme.

It is especially suitable for hard to reach places as it has a very small width and tracks that are adjustable to get into even tighter corners, for instance between buildings and boundary fences.

PINEHAVEN KEEPS GREYTOWN’S FRUIT GROWING TRADITION ALIVE When you buy apples – and many other fruits – at Pinehaven’s shop just north of Greytown you can be certain they were home-grown. Pinehaven Orchards marked its 104th anniversary this year and is still owned and operated by the Meyrick family. It grows and sells many Kiwi classic varieties including Gala which was ﬁrst discovered in one of its orchards, along with 11 other varieties of apples. Pinehaven Orchards grows six varieties of pears, stone fruit including nectarines, plums and peaches, berries, and some vegetables. There’s always a wide selection of other fresh fruit and vegetables in store, as well as some gourmet foods, and basic groceries like eggs and soft drinks.

It’s what’s underneath that matters When buying clothes, most woman shop for what’s on top. But Shalari owner Tina Dunlop knows it is what’s underneath that counts. Which is why she can comfortably claim to offer “the world’s fastest makeover.” Wearing lingerie that fits your individual body shape, makes a huge difference to how the outfit on top looks, she points out. “You can wear a $5 dress and still look like a million dollars if you are wearing the right lingerie underneath.” Tina provides a personal fitting for all her customers and keeps their details on a “fitting card” so when they come back “they don’t have to go back to square one every time.” This allows customers to go for a fresh look, knowing it will be a good fit.

Planning for the end
Temporary Fencing Wairarapa for all construction and demolition projects PHOTO/GETTY IMAGES
If you need temporary fencing - short or long term Temporary Fencing Wairarapa can help. David Lyttle can supply temporary fencing for all construction and demolition work, or anywhere else where pedestrian access needs to be restricted. He can also provide crowd control fencing for events.
Some recent examples of Temporary Fencing Wairarapa’s work are Countdown supermarket and Salvation Army op shop in Masterton, and Carterton School, with another big project about to start at Wairarapa College. David grew up in Masterton and was among the first pupils at Makoura College before heading off to Australia where he worked in the mining and construction industries for many years. When he moved back to Masterton, David couldn’t help but notice the difference between construction sites in Wellington and the Wairarapa. “I’d go to Wellington and they all have temporary fencing around them. When I came home I would see building going on and no fences.” This inspired David to start Temporary Fencing Wairarapa 18 months ago as the region’s only dedicated temporary fencing specialist. Any construction work involving potential hazards to pedestrians are likely to require temporary fencing by law, David says, “whether it is a hole in the ground, sharp objects or the danger of things falling down from above.”
What is advance care planning?
The regulations are outlined in Compliance Document 4 of New Zealand Building Code Clause F5 Construction and Demolition, but if anyone is uncertain David is happy to clarify the situation for them.

This gives everyone including you a chance to think about what’s important. It helps you understand what the future might hold and to say what healthcare you would, or would not, want. Advance care planning helps you, the important people in your life, and your health care team plan for your end-of-life care. This makes it much easier for everyone to know what you want – especially if you can no longer speak for yourself.
Steps to Get Started:
1. Think about what is important to you and what gives your life meaning. Are there any treatments / types of care that you would or would not want? Who would you want to make decisions on your behalf if you were unable to – do you have an Enduring Power of Attorney set up? If there was a choice, how and where would you like to spend your last days? Talk about who you would share your thoughts with. Would you share your thoughts with family/whanau, friends and loved ones, your GP, practice nurse, hospital specialists and healthcare team, spiritual adviser or your Enduring Power of Attorney? 2. Write Down what’s important to you,
preferred treatments, and anything else you want others to be clear about. Having your wishes in writing can save a lot of worry and concern for the important people in your life and healthcare team if they have to make a decision on your behalf. There’s a guide you can use to write these wishes down – go to the internet on www.advancecareplanning.org.nz/tools and there’s your template to save or print. If you don’t have a computer, we have copies at the Citizen’s Advice Bureau so please ring and we shall send the guide out for you. 3. Now you have written it down, you need to share it – you may like to give a copy to key family members/whanau, your GP practice, healthcare team, and your Enduring Power of Attorney if you have one. Review the plan regularly to ensure nothing has changed for you. This information is provided by the Health Quality & Safety Commission NZ and more is available on www. advancecareplanning.org.nz. We have their very good pamphlet at the bureau so please ask for a copy.

DENTAL CARE FOR YOUR DOG AND CAT
Carter Court volunteer Leny Hudepohl, left, with diversional therapist Faye Leveridge.
A decade of TLC Emily Ireland It’s coming on 10 years since Leny Hudepohl first began volunteering at Carter Court rest home. And now with a volunteering award under her belt and quite a few cherished friendships developed with the residents, she has secured a casual paid role with the organisation. Leny, the recent recipient of the Charles Rooking Carter Carterton Lions Voluntary Community Services Award, said it has been almost 10 years she first tried her hand at volunteering at the rest home. “I was made redundant when I was 61 or so,” she said. “My husband was already on a pension, but I thought, I can’t do nothing, so I thought I would volunteer for five years, put some good work back into the community – and I’m still here.” She said she had approached the rest home after seeing an ad in the “local rag” that they needed staff.
“So, I wrote to the manager at the time to ask whether they needed a volunteer and they asked, are you sure you want to come in to do this for nothing?” Leny works alongside diversional therapist Faye Leveridge, who nominated her for the Carterton award. “Because Carter Court is growing all the time, we have more residents and more day activity people – we just rely on Leny so much,” Faye said. When submitting Leny’s nomination, Faye went around the rest home to ask for feedback from the residents about Leny’s work. “They said Leny is always smiling and they know they can trust her if they need anything.” Leny chimed in saying she likes to do word games with the residents and enjoys seeing the smiles on their faces. “I also like to tease them a bit and they give it right back,” she said. Carter Court has now employed Leny on a casual basis, Faye said.

“I have a recreation assistant who has been off for five weeks on holiday so Leny was my recreation assistant during that time which is great. “She is doing something she really loves, and she’s getting paid for it.” Soon, Faye will be going on conference at which time Leny will be doing her job. “It’s great because I know I can trust her with everything and I don’t have to worry at all. “Having a good friendship with each resident is a plus. “Leny knows them all and it is very special. “My job and Leny’s job is to give people quality of life, instead of just sitting around. “Life isn’t about that.” There is a network of about 20 volunteers who help out at Carter Court, and about 40 residents. One resident, Dorrie Bolland, celebrated her 105th birthday on Sunday. She is the oldest resident Carter Court has ever had, according to Faye.
It is essential for your pet to have healthy, clean teeth free from plaque and tartar. The build up of plaque and tartar lead to periodontal disease which can lead to serious health issues for your pet. Plaque occurs when bacteria stick to the surface of the teeth and form a white to brownish film or layer called plaque. This layer hardens and form a brown, rough crust on teeth which is difficult to remove. Over time the bacteria and irritation of the tartar and plaque lead to raw, bleeding, painful and damaged gums. Structures that support the teeth are affected and in turn lead to loosening and then loss of teeth. To spot dental issues or gum disease regular checks of your pet’s mouth and teeth should be made at home. A daily check is not a bad idea. Some examples of what to look out for are: • Bad breath in your pet is not normal and can point to an underlying dental or gum disease. • Bleeding gums and blood stained saliva are a sure sign of gum disease. • You pet chewing with difficulty, not to keen on biscuits, but will eat soft/tinned food,.
• Your pet’s mouth and nose painful to touch. • Swollen face especially under the eye. These type of changes could indicate dental problems and a good idea would be to ask your vet to do an oral heath exam on your pet and to advise on any treatment necessary. A scale and polish may be the only treatment required to remove plaque and tartar, but in more serious cases dental surgery may be necessary. At home care is very important to help keep teeth and gums healthy. • Check mouth and teeth regularly • Train your puppy to get used to their teeth being brushed. (Use doggy tooth brushes and toothpaste.) You can do this daily. • Give your dog food and toys that are formulated and designed to help keep teeth clean. Some toys can damage teeth and gums. Care for your pet’s teeth as you would your own.

40 years to be celebrated A significant Chanel College milestone will be celebrated at its Jubilee this September. The College, which was founded in 1978, is set to host a full weekend of activities for former students and their families and friends from September 14-16 to celebrate the school’s 40year history. Organised by the Jubilee Sub-Committee of the Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA), former students will be given the opportunity to catch up with former classmates, teachers, family and friends. They will also be able to meet a new generation of students and teachers at Chanel College and discover the many changes that have occurred at the college and in Wairarapa since they left. One of Chanel College’s long-serving teachers Claire Hills describes the events scheduled for the reunion weekend. “The celebrations will begin with registration at Copthorne Solway Park on Friday night from 6pm, which will give those in attendance a chance to reacquaint themselves with former classroom friends and teachers,” she said.
Where are they now?

Then on the Saturday morning, visitors will be able to enjoy guided tours running alongside the Chanel Cultural and Food Festival where food from different ethnicities will be available for sale and students will present musical performances. This will be from 10.30am. Photographs taken over the years will be displayed in the assembly hall and the library.
“Many former students will not have seen the new gymnasium which was but a distant dream during their time at the College or met the new Principal, Mrs Debi Marshall Lobb,” Dr Hills said. “On Saturday afternoon the official reunion photographs will be taken and the ceremony to recognise the restoration of the wharenui and the carvings will be celebrated followed by afternoon tea.”
On Saturday night the Jubilee Reunion dinner, the cutting of the Jubilee cake, and dance will be held at Copthorne Solway Park beginning at 7pm. Member of Parliament and former Chanel College Head Boy, Kieran McAnulty will be the guest speaker. On the Sunday morning, a Mass will be held at 9am at St Patrick’s Church, followed by morning tea.
The Jubilee Committee would be very grateful if friends and relatives of former Chanel students would contact the college on the website or by letter, phone or email with the names, current addresses, and contact details of the people they know. School reunions are significant cultural milestones in the life of any college and of the community. Catholic secondary education has been part of the Wairarapa for 120 years. Chanel College, named after St Peter Chanel, was established to cater for Catholic families throughout the Wairarapa region when St Bride’s College (established in 1898) and St Joseph’s College (established in 1945) merged in 1978. In 1995 the St Joseph’s Chanel College 50th Reunion was held to celebrate 50 years since St Joseph’s College was founded in 1945. In 1998 St Bride’s celebrated its centennial reunion. The last Chanel College Reunion was in 2003 when the college celebrated its Silver Jubilee.
Public meeting The End of Life Choice Bill
Euthanasia is one of the most controversial issues being discussed by communities across New Zealand and within Wairarapa. It is a complex issue. I am hosting a debate to help bring forward a range of views and look at options.
Monday 23rd July, 6pm Carterton Events Centre Listen to ACT party Leader David Seymour MP, who brought the End of Life Choice Bill to Parliament, and Maggie Barry MP, who opposes the bill. Please come along to listen and share your views.

Ka pu te ruha, ka hao te rangatahi. As an old net withers a new net goes ﬁshing. This is a whakatauki about the place of rangatahi or younger people taking the place of older generations. When we’ve got our Prime Minister leading the country with the nurturing arm of a mother who is currently rocking the cradle, we realise that the new net extends to the very top. After many years of trouble at Waitangi, a then pregnant Prime Minister stood for a country with indigenous peoples. It cost her ﬁve days. She did more at that event than other prime ministers and a host of other politicians had done over the previous 20 years. A word we as a country have come away with from this year’s Waitangi celebration is manaaki. It is associated with hosting people. When we break this compound word into two words mana, or honour, and aki, or inﬂuence, we can
When we’ve got our Prime Minister leading the country with the nurturing arm of a mother who is currently rocking the cradle, we realise that the new net extends to the very top. think more deeply about manaaki as hosting people by inﬂuential honouring. The mana we honour is always the guest’s mana. In succession planning, the old net is always seeking to honour the rangatahi, the rising generation. Maori relationships between siblings promotes each person to what they can achieve within themselves. This concept is known as tuakana teina or oldest youngest. Two ﬁne examples we have in Carterton are Anaru Te Rangi and his brother Dallas Te Rangi. They have partly developed through the Rangatahi to Rangatira

or young person to a leader programme. They have also developed leadership skills through their own family, the quest to learn as they have travelled throughout New Zealand and learnt from other rangatahi. Recently both brothers represented Maori soldiers who lost their lives in war at ANZAC day celebrations in Carterton. The Te Rangi brothers are leaders now. In a recent Masterton District Council meeting we discussed how we might think about succession planning. We can of course look to Rebecca Vergunst, a Carterton District Councillor. Rebecca is also a part of Rangatahi to Rangatira and her development to Council means she is a leader now, but I would argue that she has been a leader throughout her life. Sometimes we say our youth are leaders of tomorrow we need to realise that our youth are leaders now. Strong leaders don’t feel challenged by other leaders because our place can be stronger with community champions and champion communities.

English Oak log seat installed The ROAR from Zone 4 Wairarapa Lions
Activities for June 2018 While celebrations at the Lions International Convention have been going on in Las Vegas to end 100 years of service since it began in 1917, more than 46,000 Lions Clubs throughout the world in over 200 countries will embark on the second century of service to mankind. Humanitarian projects are varied and focus on sight – help to restore sight and prevent blindness by improving eye care; disaster relief – with immediate and long-term assistance; and programmes to improve health, fight hunger, fight measles and provide aid to the disabled and hearing impaired. Child Cancer is one of the Youth programmes internationally. Finally, five years after a wind storm (Oct 2013) the
English Oak log seat has been installed in Memorial Square by the Carterton Lions Club. The log butt was crafted by Dan and Peter King into a seat after the tree fell in Mrs Lawrence’s section in Armstrong Ave. Mrs Lawrence requested Peter to make some garden furniture from the tree, however Peter thought it would make a better seat! Recently, Lions Harry Gray, Jim Reynolds, John Rose, Pres. John McNamara, and Allan Renall held a working Bee to arrange the installation. The official unveiling was held recently with Carterton Mayor John Booth. Carterton Central Lions Club recently held their change of officers evening and are already underway with the new team. Our first meeting we installed a new member. Club members have been attending changeover evenings at other clubs. Members are now preparing to host medical students for a day in August to convey medical life in the community. Greytown Lions Club “Cycling Without Age” committee is now in serious fund-raising mode. A Givealittle page,

Masterton Holdsworth Lions Club member continued to assist Mr Foureyes with vision screening at Greytown School along with members of the Greytown
Lioness Club. Two members spent an afternoon preparing biscuits for baking at Wairarapa Community Centre and these will go to the local Foodbank for inclusion in the food parcels. Greytown Lioness Club recently made donations to several local community groups. Others to benefit included Maths Wairarapa, Ronald McDonald House and the NZ Deaf
Foundation. The Club is also supporting Greytown Lions project “Cycling without Age” with their fundraising efforts to purchase the new Trishaw Bike. Four members assisted Ravi (Mr Foureyes) with vision screening at Greytown School. Helen Gray is the incoming president for the next year. Wairarapa Ruamahanga Lions
Club members recently spent an awesome afternoon at ANZAC bridge planting flax and making a start on weeding the native plantings south of the bridge. The club’s enthusiastic team would welcome assistance from public volunteers. The next work day will be announced shortly via our public Facebook page. Featherston Lioness Club members are looking forward to assisting Mr Foureyes with vision screening in Featherston Schools later this year. Members have catered for several activities, visited other Clubs change of officers functions. Six members are planning to travel to Tauranga to this year’s Lioness Forum. The club has decided on a plan for a shelter at the Featherston cemetery. This is for the club project for a rest area in memory of Lost Babies. Donations have been sent many local organisations to assist persons in the Wairarapa community. • For information about joining a Lions Club, go to www.lionsclubs. org.nz

A place to turn to in crisis Elisa Vorster If you’re pregnant and panic ensues, and you feel as though you have no options, you can be thankful Sunny Martin will be there to help. The former practice nurse and Masterton mother of three opened a Wairarapa branch of the Crisis Pregnancy Support service last month, which provides free and confidential support for women faced with an unplanned pregnancy. “As a practice nurse myself, I saw a need with women with unexpected pregnancies and thought there’s something more we could help them with,” Martin said. “I had something in my heart saying we need to get something like this going. “At the time there wasn’t anything I could do about it, but my own pregnancy loss was the catalyst.” All the support coordinators are health professionals, from practice nurses, to midwives and counsellors, providing the women access to expert advice without the constraints of time and money. “The time a GP has is so limited,” Martin said. “So much could be explored but they just

don’t have that time.” Cushla Hassan, clinical nurse manager and co-founder of Crisis Pregnancy Support in Nelson, said the service provided a safe and confidential environment to prevent women in crisis from feeling alone or isolated. The service was started by Hassan and her husband, a GP, in response to seeing an increased number of women at
the medical centre seeking alternatives to termination. The Nelson branch has been successfully running for 16 years now and saw nine of its first 10 clients continue with an unexpected pregnancy after receiving ongoing emotional support. “We can help a woman meet her unmet needs and link her to other community support she may not know about,”
Hassan said. “Sometimes it’s just about making sure she has food and petrol vouchers.” Martin said the service is by no means a “one stop shop” but instead can connect the women to community groups who can provide baby clothes, meals, and anything else they need. The service also provides counselling after a termination or pregnancy loss, and women are able
to continue using the free service for as long as they need. “It’s so important that every experience with a child is met,” Martin said. “With abortion and pregnancy loss, there is a lot of hurt bottled up and if people want to talk about it, we’re here for them. “And we’re here for the men too – they get a bit forgotten about sometimes.” Medical adviser and acting chair, Dr Andreas Leinfellner, had seen first-hand the need for this type of service in the region through his work at Wairarapa Hospital. He said yes to volunteering “wholeheartedly” when he heard the concept was based on helping find one stepping stone which will help the women make another step until they find a way to journey forward. “The first thing we offer is safe place and time — time to listen and hear what her reality is,” he said. “We can help make an informed decision and explore all the possibilities that are there.” Women can be referred to the service via the health system or can arrange appointments themselves via the website.

New entrants at Masterton Primary School have a brand-new woodworking bench, thanks to the eﬀorts of 10-year-old fellow student Jazaiyah Nootai, who has been working at the Henley Men’s Shed this term. Jazaiyah doesn’t ﬁt comfortably into regular classes, but under the tutelage and supervision of Men’s Shed volunteer Mike Purcell he is developing woodworking skills that will stand him in good stead in the future. He did all the sanding, jigsawing and drilling etc on the kid-sized workbench. He also did the majority of the assembly and ﬁnishing work. Jazaiuah attends the shed on Fridays, as do a small group of students from nearby Lakeview School.

We sometimes receive feedback from patients who have concerns about not being able to have a long term GP. While continuity of care definitely has benefits, the changing GP workforce means that this is one of the biggest challenges faced by General Practice today. The GP who stayed in one place for 40 years is being replaced by a younger workforce who don’t want to commit long term and in fact take the opportunity to travel the country and the world. While we continually strive to recruit GP’s for permanent placements, they have the same option to give notice and move on as any other employee. To meet this challenge we are always looking for smarter ways to work and deliver healthcare. For example: • GP phone triage, where the patient gets to speak directly with a Doctor who can organise any required pre work and make the most appropriate appointment for the patient. • We have divided the practice into 4 smaller GP teams with 3-4 GP’s and nurses in each team. If a patient can’t see their own GP they can see a GP or Nurse in the same team. It is hoped that this will encourage better relationships with patients getting know a smaller group of clinical staff.

Property developers and builders in Wairapapa are keen to be involved in KiwiBuild after seeing details released by Housing Minister Phil Tywford last week. However, the Government is yet to say how many KiwiBuild homes will be in Wairarapa. “We are looking into it to see if we can get some KiwiBuild homes built,” said Steve Pilbrow of Westwood Developments. It could happen within either existing or new developments by the company, he said. Based on the information released so far, Pilbrow believes the KiwiBuild homes would be “up to scratch” and ﬁt into developments here. Gareth Norris, managing director of Jennian Homes Wairarapa, said his company had “dialogue happening” with Kiwibuild. “The Wairarapa is proving at the moment it has good capacity to cope with a larger volume of construction,” he said. “It cements what we are currently doing and hopefully allows us to continue doing it for many years.” He said there would be some subdivisions that would be a struggle for KiwiBuild buyers because of the land costs. “But we are building a lot of houses between $400,000 and

$500,000, including land,” Norris said. To be eligible to go into the ballot to buy a KiwiBuild home, people must be New Zealand citizens buying their ﬁrst home and earn less than $120,000 a year as a sole purchaser, or $180,000 as a couple. The most they can spend in Wairarapa is $500,000, and they must intend to own and live in the house for three years. Norris said the income thresholds and maximum house price were “good for Wairarapa”.
He said KiwiBuild gave people a clean passage to purchase without competition. KiwiBuild was also good because it allowed people to focus on the stock numbers of houses, which was the solution to the housing shortage. Developer Roger Southey said the announced KiwiBuild cap would meet requirements for parts of the Cashmere Oaks subdivision his company was developing in Masterton. For KiwiBuild, the government buys houses from developers at an agreed advance underwrite price, as if it were a private purchaser, and then on-sells them to eligible KiwiBuild purchasers. This gives developers certainty and makes it easier for them to obtain ﬁnance. KiwiBuild is seeking to build 100,000 aﬀordable homes during the next 10 years.

Cattle disease As the threat of Mycoplasma bovis lingers in the region, many Wairarapa farmers know from past experience all about the stress of eradicating a cattle disease. BECKIE WILSON looks back nearly 30 years with farmers who lived through bovine tuberculosis (TB) eradication.
FOR CHAINSAW SEASON AT LANGLANDS HONDA GREYTOWN If you are whipping out your chainsaw for firewood, a yard tidy up or work on the farm, Langlands Honda Greytown has some great deals till the end of winter. They run right across the spectrum of both two and four stroke Husqvarna models, starting with a low priced quality model, the 236e, which normally sells retail at $449 but is $329 till spring arrives. As an added bonus, a number of the specials include a free safety gear kit, normally valued at $330, of chaps, ear muffs and a cap. Finance is available with 500 days to pay and no interest. If you already have a satisfactory
chainsaw of any brand the shop at the north entrance to Greytown, they can supply parts such as bars and chains along with a range of oils for two and four strokes and chains. They will sharpen your chain for just $15 to $20 or you can buy a sharpening kit and do it yourself. Langlands Honda Greytown has experienced technicians in their workshop who can repair all makes and models
For cattle farmers, the threat of bovine tuberculosis (TB), and now Mycoplasma bovis, is no doubt one of the biggest stresses in their farming lives. The two diseases are devastating to herds, the cost of eradication is high, and the impact on farmers’ profitability and wellbeing is severe. These days, Wairarapa is considered a “low risk” area for TB, according to the TB Free programme, but that has not always been the case. TB is most commonly found in cattle and deer as small lesions in the lymph nodes of the chest, and is spread by possums and ferrets. While the disease was likely brought into the country in the late 1800s it was not known that possums were spreading
the disease to cattle until the early 1970s. By then, all cattle herds across the country were under regular TB testing, and by the 1980s the disease had been effectively eradicated from many cattle herds across the country. But it was a different story for Wairarapa, where the test and slaughter approach was not working and it had become a major cause of livestock infection. Masterton district councillor John Dalziell wore two hats during the TB eradication programme: as chair of the Animal Health Board (AHB) when elected in 2001, and as a sheep and beef farmer from Tinui. While effects of the two diseases vary, the impact on farmers is much the same, he said.
You can visit the showroom to check out the models and also buy chainsaw accessories like chaps, helmets and ear muffs.
The TB eradication process was a “massive programme” involving high costs from farmers through levies, council rates and the government, he said. The Animal Health Board was formed in 1993 and was charged with the eradication of TB. Effective disease management has led to a drop in infected herd numbers from 1700 nationally in the mid-1990s to 43 in 2016. A key difference between the two diseases is the ability to identify the source. “If you look at TB, once you killed the possums you killed the disease because you stopped the cycle, but M.bovis, you have got to kill all cattle to stop it, so that’s a really distinct difference,” Dalziell said. With TB, only animals that test positive must be killed. But Dalziell said at the height of TB, the culling of animals, coupled with the regulations set by the AHB to stop the spread, meant Wairarapa farmer’s profitability took a hit. Selling restrictions were put in place for farmers who had infected herds. There were various testing programmes depending on the level of

risk for each area. “Like in Wairarapa, which was a high-risk area, everyone would have been on annual tests, but infected herds were twice yearly.” Just as with M.bovis, some sceptics argued against the costly eradication programme that began in the early 1990s, he said. While it took a couple of years to see a positive
outcome from the process, many farmers were soon on board with what was being done. In another similarity with M.bovis, there was peer pressure between farmers whose cattle had TB, and those whose stock did not, he said But Dalziell said the nature of the disease meant that if a herd did not have it one year, it was likely to have it the next.
As a stud breeder, every time we came up for our test we were on tenterhooks. even worse.” During the intense TB eradication programme, farmers had the certainty of knowing where it came from and how it was spread as they tackled the disease, he said. Wairarapa Department of Conservation (DOC) ranger Jim Flack said the past 25 years of intensive possum control had been “fantastic” for Wairarapa’s bush and birds. “Possums had been munching their way through Wairarapa’s bush and birds unchecked for decades,” he said. Now, there is a “network of healthy native bush” for native birds to flourish in, Flack said.
John Dalziell on his Tinui farm, not long before he stood down as chairperson of the Animal Health Board.
While TB had not been fully eradicated yet, to have the region considered a low-risk was “fantastic”, he said. The TB Free eradication programme, which involves testing and pest poisoning, aims to have the all livestock rid of the disease by 2026, and from possums by 2040, and finally for the country to be TB free by 2055. Rural Masterton stud breeder, and former Masterton district councillor David Holmes, said TB eradication was a very “frightening process” for Wairarapa farmers. “As a stud breeder, every time we came up for our test we were on tenterhooks,” he said. While Holmes never had any TB infected cattle, the stress was likely as intense for him as it was for farmers who had infected cattle. A similar feeling was felt by farmers across the country with M.bovisinfected herds, he said. TB had been in the country for “donkey’s years”, but the uncertainty surrounding the entry of M.bovis “bewilders” Holmes. “The reality is we haven’t been told how it got here, perhaps it was bought in illegally, which makes it

The Taiaha and the Axe TERRI TE TAU
An extract from Wanted: The search for the modernist murals of E. Mervyn Taylor, edited by Bronwyn Holloway-Smith and published by Massey University Press. On the corner of Lincoln Road and Queen Street in Masterton is a mural hidden behind a carefully constructed wall. The wall was built to protect the mural, but also to hide it from view. Created by E. Mervyn Taylor in time for the building’s opening in 1962, the mural has a name, Early Settlers, but does this name do the image full justice? One man stares out across the landscape from under his wide-brim hat. Smoke billows out across the sky and jagged tree stumps line the hills. There’s an air of accomplishment in his pose; the trees are felled, the buildings erected, and people gather together around the post office. Both the man and his axe are at rest, their work for the moment complete. The other man stands closely behind him holding a taiaha. This man is not a settler and neither he nor his

taiaha are at rest. Directly behind the man is a stand of trees – not yet felled by the axe or by fire – perhaps this is why the man’s taiaha is raised, he has the remains of a forest to protect. During the period that Early Settlers depicts – the mid-to late 1800s – the clearing of bush was a highly celebrated activity and those who undertook it were considered heroes. It’s hard to imagine, in our time of climate consciousness, that such little regard would be had for conservation. Maori, having witnessed the loss of bird species over time,
had established systems of rahui that gave both species and soil periods of rest for rejuvenation. Our European ancestors, on the other hand, saw the forest as a beast that needed to be beaten into submission, ‘a wilderness that needed to be tamed, ordered, legally defined, made economically viable, and “civilised” through European settlement’. Later, when many of the forests were gone, concerns were raised about how this might affect the process of transpiration, which could lead to a much drier climate in
the Wairarapa. A contemporary reading of Early Settlers, however, needs to encompass a wider narrative, especially in light of recent Rangitane and Ngati Kahungunu ki Wairarapa tribunal settlements. The struggle of settlers is one small part of a much larger story. For me, the significance of this mural lies in the placement of the lone man and his taiaha within the shadow of the axe-wielding settler, highlighting the struggle of Maori to retain visibility and mana in the wake of their land being taken. Wairarapa whanau and hapu were rendered virtually landless as a result of the rapid acquisition of land by the Crown. In the Wairarapa, the loss of land meant not being able to support ourselves in an area where agriculture had become the primary mode of survival. We became a minority very quickly within a society that had little regard for Maori values, language and culture. It is important that we don’t hide our history – we need it to help us understand our present, while also guiding us into the future.
Looking at Early Settlers through a contemporary lens, with its global concerns for climate change and race relations, the imagery can be seen as a significant illustration of these issues on a local level. If we imagine that the stand of forest with birds swooping above is the Pukaha Mount Bruce bird reserve, then Early Settlers could be indicative of the partnerships needed to navigate these issues. Given this context, Early Settlers remains a relevant and important part of Wairarapa history, which warrants the removal of that carefully built wall. • Readers are invited to meet Bronwyn HollowaySmith for an illustrated talk and a guided walk to Masterton’s two murals on Saturday July 14, 2-4pm, starting and ending at Aratoi.

Waicol team smash Porirua COLLEGE SPORT Jake Beleski
The Wairarapa College First XV will enjoy the school holidays a little bit more after Friday’s emphatic win over Porirua College. Waicol proved far too strong for the only winless team in the College Sport Wellington premiership grade, winning 41-0 at home. The result means Waicol are in fifth place and only five points outside the top four, but there are only two rounds left to play until the semifinals. Waicol’s final two matches – after the school holidays – will be against Hutt International Boys’ School [home] and Scots College [away]. They will most likely have to win both to have any hope of sneaking into the semifinals, but that will be no easy task. They will be confident of getting the job done against Hutt International Boys’ School, who are sitting in ninth place with two wins from their seven matches. But Scots College away from home is a tough task at the best of times, and this year they are in second place with six wins from their seven matches. Wellington College are in fourth spot and they are the only team Waicol can overtake with two rounds left to play, but they will need them to slip up against an unfancied opponent to have any chance.

Wellington College will take on Porirua College and Rongotai College in the final two rounds, with both teams sitting below them on the points table. If Waicol do narrowly miss out on the top four, they will look back at a couple of key matches in the season which could have made all the difference to the final standings. Their 24-22 loss to Rongotai in round one is one they would love to have over again. They also pushed Wellington College to the limit in a 15-7 loss but were unable to capitalise
on the opportunities they created. Waicol’s First XI football team endured another tough outing against Wellington College on Saturday, eventually going down 5-0. They are stuck at the bottom of the premiership table with one win from their five matches to date and have two matches to come – against Tawa College and Hutt International Boys’ School – before the competition splits into top four and bottom four.

Dalefield navigates win HOCKEY
The Farriers Dalefield premier women’s hockey team navigated their way past a tricky opponent on Saturday and put themselves in prime position to secure top spot heading into the playoffs. Dalefield hosted Victoria University at Clareville and secured a 2-0 win on the back of an impressive defensive performance. Morgan Percy scored Dalefield’s first from a deflection off a penalty corner, and Katherine van Woerkom added another in the third quarter to give them some breathing space. Coach Michael O’Connor said it was a pleasing result against an opponent they had always found tough in the past. “It was always going to be a tough game and it was pretty tough all the way through, but we did well. “We talked before the game about not wanting to concede a goal and I thought we did really well not to do that.” Loren Hartnell was called into the squad in the absence of both regular goalkeepers and produced an assured display at the back. “She did great, especially

in the last 10 minutes when they pressed us really hard,” O’Connor said. “They got into our circle a bit and she dived around all over the place and played her heart out.” Dalefield made a couple of positional changes from their regular line-up, with van Woerkom moving back into a defender role and O’Connor’s daughter, Michael O’Connor, moving forward into centre half.

He said the changes had worked well for the team. “Along with Morgan in the midfield, I think they tidied up a few things that had been a bit of a problem for us in the last few weeks. “The game looked a lot tidier with those three in those roles. “That was really pleasing, and our attackers played really well.” O’Connor said van Woerkom organised things
expertly from the back, and that leadership would be vital moving towards the playoffs. “They kept things nice and tight for us. “We can’t be leaking goals when we get to the playoffs.” Jenna Anderson was Dalefield’s player of the match. They will now have a week off before heading into a tough double header on July 20 and 21
– the final weekend of the regular season. On the Friday night they will play secondplaced Harbour City in Wellington, and then on the Saturday they will host third-placed Hutt United at Clareville. One win from those two matches should be enough to secure top spot heading into the playoffs. “We’re going okay – we can always be better but we need to keep tracking along,” O’Connor said. The Farriers Dalefield premier men’s team kept their narrow lead at the top of the standings with a 4-1 win over Naenae at Clareville on Saturday. Dalefield have a onepoint lead over Hutt United, but could lose that lead this weekend as they have a weekend off. The two teams will then meet in the final round of regular season matches on July 21, with the winner likely to finish at the top of the standings. The top two teams get two lives once the playoffs start, so finishing in top position isn’t vital, but it may mean the game is played at Clareville, rather than Wellington, and that is an advantage Dalefield will be keen to make the most of.

Top four teams confirmed RUGBY
Gladstone 58 Carterton 51 Martinborough 42 Greytown 41 Marist 35 East Coast 21 Eketahuna 14 Red Star 1

points scored in Carterton’s clash with Greytown on Saturday, but that didn’t mean the game was any less exciting. Carterton came away with a narrow 8-6 win, and in the process guaranteed themselves a home semi-final. Both matches could potentially have been previews of the semi-final match-ups in a couple of weeks, but that will depend on next weekend’s
results. Eketahuna were able to celebrate just their second win of the season of Saturday, as they beat winless Masterton Red Star 26-5 at Colombo Rd. Both teams have struggled to make much of an impact throughout the season, but the result means Red Star are unlikely to secure a win this season, with their last match an away trip to Gladstone. Marist knew they had
to beat East Coast on Saturday to keep their faint playoff hopes alive, but unfortunately for them, their fate was not in their own hands. They got the job done with a convincing 31-7 win at Memorial Park, but they are destined to finish agonisingly short of a top four spot. The most important match of next weekend’s final round will be Greytown against Martinborough, at
Greytown. The winner will go on to play Carterton in one semi-final a week later, while the loser will travel to Gladstone for the other playoff match. Both match-ups present their own challenges, with Gladstone proving unbeatable at home so far this season while Carterton have hit their straps at the right time. In next weekend’s other matches, Gladstone will host Red Star, East Coast will play Carterton and Eketahuna will look to finish the regular season on a high against Marist. Premier results: Martinborough 20 Gladstone 15; Marist 31 East Coast 7; Carterton 8 Greytown 6; Eketahuna 26 Red Star 5. Senior reserves: Tuhirangi 45 Puketoi 21; Pioneer 22 Carterton 12; Pioneer OB 38 Featherston 29; Marist 29 Greytown 29; Gladstone 15 Martinborough 5; Eketahuna 55 East Coast 5.
It took a few weeks longer than expected, but the semi-finalists in the Wairarapa-Bush Tui Cup rugby competition have been confirmed. Marist continued their impressive late season charge with another win on Saturday, but Martinborough’s upset win over previously unbeaten Gladstone ensured Marist can no longer sneak into a playoff spot. Gladstone and Carterton are guaranteed to finish first and second on the ladder respectively and will host semi-finals on July 21. They will be up against Martinborough and Greytown, but teams will not know who they are playing until after next weekend’s final regular season matches. Martinborough may have felt like their season was slipping away, with the indifferent form they have shown over the last few weeks, but they stepped up when it mattered most to claim an impressive 20-15 win over Gladstone on Saturday. Gladstone may find they can relax a little, now that their unbeaten streak has come to an end, but they will be keen to bounce back quickly next weekend and ensure they head into the playoffs in the same confident frame of mind they have played with all season. There weren’t many
Rutene inspires Wairarapa United FOOTBALL
Jake Beleski A Kelsi Rutene double helped propel the Wairarapa United women’s team to a convincing 4-0 win in their W-League match against Western Suburbs in Masterton on Saturday.
It took United a while to get anything to show from their dominance, however, and it wasn’t until the last five minutes of the first half that they made it count on the scoreboard. It was Rutene who struck the first blow to put United up 1-0, and then just before halftime
Meisha Boone got on the end of a beautiful cross from Anna McPhie to double United’s lead. Both teams had chances to score early in the second half, but neither team could quite manage to find the right finishing touches. But United weren’t about to let Western
Suburbs back into the match, and two further goals to Rutene and Rosie Aitkenhead secured a comfortable win. The result means that with four matches to play in the W-League, United still sit in second, five points adrift of leaders Wellington United.
The two teams will play each other once more in W-League action – as well as this weekend in a Kate Sheppard Cup knockout match – and United will most likely need to beat them in both matches to have a chance of winning either competition.
