MPs: Air NZ prices too high Air New Zealand’s fares to fly to and from Nelson are too high and should be looked at, say Nelsonbased MPs Nick Smith and Maryan Street. In April, Nelson Weekly reported on the hundreds of angry locals fed up with paying domestic airfares that were often higher than international fares. Since then, Air New Zealand has announced a record $262 million

Access Mobility takes pride in providing quality service and a wide variety of helpful products, to ensure you maintain your independance.

Zealand needs to look at its business model. “Even the short trip from Wellington to Nelson is eyewateringly expensive at times. I think something is wrong with their business model if they can make that much profit and not return some of it via lower prices.” National’s Nick Smith says having a profitable airline is a good thing for the country but prices, especially those at short notice,

need to be addressed and he’s personally spoken with Air New Zealand about the issue. “I’ve discussed the issue both with the Prime Minister and Air New Zealand. My biggest concern is about the price of Air New Zealand’s air fares for last minute bookings around New Zealand.” He says he’d much rather have the national carrier making a profit for reinvestment and more

If people get a Grab-a-seat ticket for $80 or $90 they’re actually pretty happy, but the ones where they’re paying $300 or $400 – as much as it would cost to get them to Australia – are the problem.”

Free food in hot demand Andrew Board

When Martin Reading committed to renting a space at the Victory Community Centre a year ago to cook hot meals for the community, he had no idea if anyone would turn up. Twelve months on and he’s expanded to Tahuna – with plans to take on the whole region. Martin’s Food for Families started as an idea to get left over produce from market gardeners and

use it to cook healthy, hot food. He started in Victory and now has around 50 people turning up every Friday night to feed themselves and their families for free. A month ago he started in Tahuna and already has more than 20 people turning up each Tuesday night. He says support from the community and businesses has seen his vision grow much quicker than he ever thought possible. And just last week he was contacted by Abon Wastney of the

Seventh Day Adventist Church, who had a caravan fully converted into a kitchen that the church’s charity group, Adra Care, use to help in emergencies, like the Christchurch earthquake. Martin says with the caravan he can take his Food for Families all over the top of the south. “I have a vision which I call the community kitchen, which I hope will be run by volunteers, with businesses paying our rent and with all the produce donated. So we’ll be able to cook in the one place and then we can go to the different community centres in the caravan. We’ll be able to go to Stoke, Tahuna, Motueka, Richmond.” The ambitious plan is com-

ing together with the YMCA offering their commercial kitchen to Martin, rent free, for another year. “The support from people has been amazing and it’s great that we can provide this kind of service to people in need, with the help from other Nelsonians.’ Martin says the people come down for various reasons. Some are there every week, while many others are there for a few weeks before their situation improves and they move on. He says there are no free-loaders but plenty of good people, and along with his wife and daughter and the other volunteers, he’s happy to be able to help. “There’s is definitely a need and it feels good to help.”

The Nelson School of Music followed a few weeks later for similar reasons and the announcement yesterday, that

Nelson mayor Rachel Reese has welcomed the appointments. “We’ve pledged to do all we can to find workable, affordable solutions to reopen both these highly valued community facilities. Opus is aware of the need for urgency and has committed to delivering to a tight time-frame.” The project managers will begin work within the week in order to keep things moving, she says. “We understand what an important role both venues play in the artistic, sporting and recreational lives of many people in our community.”

The funeral for Nelson teenager Wynter Emerson will be held at the Nayland College Hall this Saturday, after an overwhelming response to an appeal is helping to bring Wynter home to Nelson. Wynter’s body was found in Lake Union in Seattle on September 8, after the 18-year-old former Nayland College student was reported missing since attending a music festival in Seattle that ended on September 1. Wynter had been travelling in Canada and the United States for about two months and was expected to return to New Zealand in December. A PayPal fund was set up to help the family bring their son home, and this week Wynter’s parents, Shon and Ally, and his brothers, Tyler and Seth, issued a statement saying “we have been completely overwhelmed with the support from the local community, our friends,

Wynter Emerson with his father Shon. family and Wynter’s employers, Benge and Co Stoke and Hangar 58”. “The ‘Bring Wynter Home’ fund continues to receive donations from wonderful, caring people from all over the world, some of whom we do not even know. People from all across New Zealand and as far away as Norway, UK,

Canada and America have made donations, both large and small. “At present you have donated just over $32,000, which is going to be an enormous help to us in getting our Wynter back home. We want to sincerely thank those who have taken the time to donate, visit, and send messages of support, flowers and food. Thank you does not seem to be enough. “Although it is a very difficult time, we are so comforted by the knowledge that Wynter has touched so many lives. What parent wouldn’t be proud that their son made such an impression on the people who he has met.” Donations to bring Wynter back home can be made to, Bring or by making a deposit in Bring Wynter Home, Kiwi Bank account number 38 9013 000 98 73 00, reference, Wynter.

School bus caught speeding Locally Owned and Operated

A speeding school bus carrying primary school-aged children was caught in a police sting, aimed at keeping the roads around schools safe. Police discovered the speeding school bus during the first day of a road policing operation targeting speed around schools, but won’t say which school the children on board attended. Acting Senior Sergeant Mike Wardle says it was disappointing to start the operation by detecting a speeding school bus. “These drivers are entrusted with the safety of other people’s children and I would expect they would be more aware than other road users of the risks they face.” The operation, which will run for the next two months, also focuses on young drivers and risk factors such as cell phone use and breaches of graduated driver licences. Police stopped 121 vehicles over

a 12 hour period, with a focus on areas around schools at the beginning and end of the day. Infringement notices were issued to 101 drivers. Thirty-two tickets were issued for speeding and a further 18 tickets were issued for exceeding 20kmh past a school bus which had stopped to pick up or drop off children. Thirteen drivers were found to be breaching the conditions of their graduated driver licence and three were found using mobile phones. Mike says the operation would continue to target high risk areas over the coming weeks. “It’s timely to remind drivers that traffic travelling in either direction on the road is required to slow down to 20kmh for a stopped school bus. Many people seem to be unaware of their responsibility when they are on the opposite side of the road,” he says.

Tahuna teacher to say goodbye after 30 years

After 30 years of teaching at the one school it was inevitable that Carol Climo would start to run into parents who were also former students, but she’s decided to call it a day before she runs into the next generation. Carol started at Tahunanui School in 1979 and has been there ever since – apart from a two year stint in Auckland and another four years in Maruia. She often has parents of current students come up to her saying she taught them as well. “At the last gala, one of the boys who I taught when I first started at Tahunanui came up to talk to me and he’s now 47. There’s been heaps of children of parents who I’ve also taught. I’ve been waiting for the third generation, but I’m outta here before that happens,” she joked. Carol says she’s stayed at Tahunanui for so long because of the friendly community, teaching staff and kids. She’s taught new entrants since 1990, so has often been the first person to give hundreds of kids their first official lessons in reading and writing. She says that’s been made easier by the families. “I love that fact that mums come along and we develop a relationship. They develop trust to leave their babies with me and I think that’s so important.

Andrew Board Editor If the whole family is happy and the child is happy then the child is made to learn. They’ve had a wonderful start to school.” She says calling a day on her long career will be tough, but she will be joining her husband Kevin in retirement and says she’ll be treating it “like my next job”. “I think I’ll miss it hugely. It will be a new challenge but it will be exciting. We’re a hunting and gathering type of family so we’ll be caravanning, fishing, we’ve got a boat, we’ll do some shooting.” Tahunanui principal Paul Drummond says Carol will be a big loss. “Lifelong attitude to learning is hugely influenced by a child’s first start to schooling. I know that every child and their family at Tahunanui gets that positive beginning with Carol. “She creates that positive first impression that lasts. She is a wonderful teacher who has also inspired the practice of her colleagues. She shaped and affected the future of so many people, both young and old.”

Grant helps peninsula fight pests Bishop Peninsula is set for a $40,000 boost to its fight against pests. Environment minister Nick Smith says the peninsula, also called Uri O Te Wai, in the Wakapuaka Estuary is a “stunning” remnant of native forest and the money will be used to partner with its owners, local iwi, to help protect native birdlife. “It’s native birdlife takes a hammering from pests like rats, mice, stoats and possums. This grant will enable a network of traps to be laid to knock back pest numbers and enable the birdlife to recover and flourish. The benefits will not just be on the peninsula, but will provide increased native birdlife to the wider

Church sells pews, Tuesday, September 2: The Stoke Methodist Church were thrilled with how their garage sale went, selling all of their 20 pews and, with such high demand for them, they could have sold 20 more. There were also plenty of chairs and other furniture items that were sold, making way for upgrades to the church that will better benefit the community. The money raised by the sale of the pews and furniture items will be going towards new chairs and furnishings for their new building. Poppy makers, Tuesday, September 9: There has already been a keen interest in the poppy display to be created for next year’s ANZAC day. Although no poppies have been sent in, Susan Holland of the Nelson Creative Fibre Group, says that she has received phone calls from those interested in being part of the commemoration display. A lot more people are needed to make the display, so if anyone is keen to be involved contact Susan on 547 4329 or email group. USA Camp, Tuesday, September 9: With only ten people expected to turn up to the USA camp info meeting at NMIT, organisers were very satisfied with the 21 enthusiastic young people who did come to hear the presentation, and are sure they will get several definite bookings from the successful evening.

Political party wants 1080 ban A Nelson-based political party is hoping to reignite the debate around 1080 poison and one of its candidates, Nelson jeweller Glen James, says the government should ban it. The Ban 1080 party doesn't mince words when describing its main political issue and Glen, who is seventh on the party list and standing in the Kaikouria electorate, says the government should be smarter when trying to deal with pests. "The world has a natural way of finding a balance. Sure there will be rats and stoats that eat birds eggs, but that's balance."

1080 poison is used by the Department of Conservation to control pests like rats, stoats and possums. The bright pellets are dropped from a plane over an area where the pests are, which are then eaten. But Glen says it's not just the pests that are dying as a result of the poison. "There's a lot of by-kill. It kills a huge percentage of birds. It's killing a lot of kea and other animals as well like dogs and deer." The party has dozens of hoardings around Nelson and Glen is hoping to use the election to highlight the issue. "We should be using people, not poisons, because they

are species specific. At the moment it's just drop 1080 on the bush and hope." But environment minister Nick Smith says it would be a disaster if 1080 drops stopped. "I accept that the 1080 issue is a complex one and that there are lots of people who are poorly informed. "Our rats, stoats and possums kill 25 million native birds a year. Our grandchildren will not see kiwi in the wild unless we use the best tools available to knock back those pest numbers. The issue is particularly acute this year because we had a beech mast event. That is where our native for-

ests drop their seed, it happens every seven years and it creates about 50 million tonne of seed and an explosion of firstly, mice, then rats, then stoats. Then when the seeds germinate in spring the massive – and we're talking about plague proportions of rats – have no food. The population of rats collapse and that causes starvation for the stoats and our native birds become the target and they just get obliterated." He says there's no way the pests can be trapped. "If you think you can control pests in our massive forests by trapping, you're dreaming."

New liquor store opens

A new liquor store on Gloucester St has got off to a roaring start, says its owner. Ranbir Singh and his wife Sukhraj moved to Nelson from Palmerston North to open The Bottle Store. When they applied for consent from Nelson City Council there was significant push back from residents, saying there were already enough liquor outlets in the region. But Ranbir says he’s here to be a good community citizen and he’s had a great start in the city. “We really love Nelson. We were here for not even two days and it felt like home. “And the people have been really great, too. We had a really good response from our ad in the Nelson Weekly last week and every day we’re getting more and more customers.” Ranbir says the layout of the store and his wide range and craft beer on tap are his big assets. “We also have a big push on our customers drinking responsibly.”

TUESDAY 16 September 2014

Road works started on Waimea Rd on Monday, meaning motorists should expect delays. The ongoing work programme on Waimea Rd has now entered a new stage as the section between Hampden St and The Ridgeway are resealed. Two traffic lanes will be kept open during the day to reduce the disruption to motorists. The area between Rutherford St and Hampden St will also be undergoing resealing in stage 2 of the project, after the upgrade of Little Go Stream to increase storm water capacity in Van Dieman St. Photo: Jessie Johnston.

Whether you want to get rid of your end-of-year paperwork, old personal records, or you’re a professional with client documents, Hills Cleaning can provide an easy, secure and confidential solution. Documents never leave Nelson, and once they are shredded and bagged, customers have two options. If there is the demand, local potters or other craft businesses often take away the remains of the documents for packaging, or if it’s preferred, the documents can be taken and dumped loosely at the refuse station. If some of the material sent for destruction is considered gender sensitive, Tracy or another female staff member will do the job. Hills Cleaning are also the people to call on when it comes to getting your home or rental up to scratch. Their services include window cleaning, specialised hard floor cleaning and polishing, carpet, upholstery, mats and rug cleaning, walls and ceilings, ovens and almost any dirt and grime removal. They carry out their services in both domestic and commercial spaces, and are definitely a handy team to call to get your home up to showroom standard for selling or inspection, a general spruce up, regular office and window cleaning. They also help with deceased estates where the house is cleaned and the contents of the home are cleared, cleaned and passed on to other agencies for re-selling.

N e l s o N b AY s U 1 8 R U g b Y First up, big thanks to our major sponsors Taylors Contracting and The Car Company and also all the below sponsors, without them, the campaign would be a lot more difficult, we really appreciate their support. The boys have come from all over, from Murchison, Motueka, Golden Bay, Collingwood and of course Nelson giving us lots of choice and this has required lots of dedication, the guys have really made a special effort to come from far and wide, we have had a team building day and they boys have really gelled.

This is reflected in the results so far with a pre season game against Buller Development, won 62-10 in Murchison, followed by the next game which was our 1st competition game against Marlborough which they won 72-7 at Jubilee park. The next game is against Canterbury Country on the 20th september at Jubilee park at 12.15pm, followed by Canterbury Metro on 27th september in Christchurch. On the 2nd October we travel to Christchurch for 3 games in 3 days, 1st game against Canterbury Metro development and from the results of all these games we will be pooled

for a semi final and a final. The games are on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of October. Special mention to Quinten Strange who has made the New Zealand secondary school squad and he will be unavailable for the squad due to this selection. The team is ably coached by Bill Coventry and Don McLean who have a very successful pedigree in coaching Nelson teams over the years. Once again thanks to all the sponsors who without them this would be impossible. You are all welcome to come and watch these fixtures.

SPORT former makos' manager Locally Owned and Operated


takes charge of NZ 7s team Andrew Board Editor

As far as first weeks at a new job go, Jenelle Strickland isn't complaining. The former Tasman Makos' team manager had just been appointed as the manager for the New Zealand women's sevens rugby team when she was put on a plane to Glasgow, to get a feel of life at the Commonwealth Games. "Best first week ever,” she says. “I had a bruised arm by the time I left Glasgow, from me pinching myself at how lucky I am." After five years as the first woman to manage a professional rugby team in New Zealand, Jenelle quit her job at the end of last season's successful run and took a job at Tasman Rugby Union headquarters. Soon after that she was shoulder-tapped to apply for the sevens job and, after going through the interview process, was appointed this winter. Janelle will still be based in Nelson and will fly to training camps in Tauranga, and to tournaments around the world when necessary. She is expecting to be away from home for around four months of the year. As well as travelling to places like Dubai, Holland, the United States and China on the women’s sevens world circuit, the big carrot is the Olympic Games in Brazil in 2016. She says having the opportunity to work in that environment will be "amazing". “For me, this is a dream job in terms of getting to manage a national team and taking that

College cleans up football titles Nelson College's 1st XI football team has had a dream week, winning the Nelson Bays Football first division on Thursday and the Price Charity Cup on Saturday. The school team won the Price Charity Cup final at Jubilee Park after beating FC Nelson 2-1.

Nelson's Jenelle strickland is the new manager of the New Zealand women's sevens rugby team. Photo: Andrew Board. team to the Olympics. Everyone who loves sports will know it’s a huge opportunity just to go to the Olympics and watch it, let alone be a part of a team that’s competing in it.” The women’s sevens team is new, created after the sport was granted Olympic status, but expectation on it to win gold at the Olympics will still be massive. “They’ve won the world series twice so they will be one of the favourites and women’s sevens is the first team sport to finish at the Olympics, so they could potentially be the first team to win a gold medal at the games,” says Jenelle. As team manager, it’s Jenelle’s job to organise flights, accommodation, make sure the players are getting the right

physiotherapy treatment, help develop team culture, set team protocols and she will also be the team’s main media contact. She says being able to manage a national team, while based in Nelson, is the best of both worlds. “I’m stoked about being able to be based in Nelson. I love it here and didn’t really want to have to move to pursue my career, but I thought I may have had to. So the fact I don’t is awesome, because I can be around my friends and family and my support network when I am home.” Jenelle’s first tournament in charge is a pre-season tournament in Noosa at the start of October, before the World Series tournament starts in Dubai at the beginning of December.


GENERATIONS OF NELSON Brought to you by Marsden House

Home to refugees The Taranaki Land War which broke out on March 17, 1860, actually helped shape the look of Nelson. Four days later, a crowded public meeting in the town agreed to offer asylum to Taranaki women

and children fleeing the violence. In the next six months, 1250 refugees were taken into private Nelson homes and the “Taranaki Cottages” sprang up as accommodation. Some can still be seen today in Nelson’s historic South Street.

Spring is in the air, days are getting longer and the weather has been pretty settled. The winter fish are on the 'chew' in the deeper waters of the region, as spring starts and their pre spawning conditioning season starts to kick in. Get your boat in for a service early, so as to avoid the mad rush when Nelson hears of early season 3-8 lb snapper getting caught close in around the bay. Give it another few weeks and the set-netters and long-liners will start scoring the odd big Moocher who will be closer in the bay chasing those elusive whitebait and smelts, although probably along with plenty of greyboy school sharks as well. The Dawnbreakers Fishing Club is pleased to annouce that, first social day coming up on Saturday, October 11, at 5pm our guest speaker will be a representative from Ministry for Primary Industries (old MAF). All new members, and any other fishers who maybe considering joining our club, are more than welcome to come along to the Tasman Bay Cruising club venue on the marina side just south of the Nelson launching ramp (the children are more than welcome along also). Attend and see what local info our club has to offer and meet others

The Dawnbreakers will be having some great speakers at their social days this season along with speeches and demonstrations on longlines, knots, rigs, jigging and many other things fishing related. Come along and to learn local knowledge and techniques alike. Contact the club by emailing,, www. or contact Gavin after hours on 027 445 4603. Lastly, the Dawnbreakers Fishing Club would like to express our sincere condolences and commiseration to our previous club family, the Emersons.

Richmond wins netball final Carol Cook

Netball Reporter

The Premier 1 netball final lived up to all expectations, when a tightly-contested game was played between top seed Richmond and defending champions Jacks OPD. In the four clashes this season the spoils had been shared with two wins apiece, however the slate was wiped clean and the winner took the title. Jacks were without their ace goal shooter Ani Waitai, due to a coaching commitment with the Tasman Men at their New Zealand Championships. But Hannah Mead handled the GS bib with aplomb to defeat Stoke NBS 52-51 in the semi, just two days earlier. It was mooted in netball circles that the competition had been such this year that any one of the top four could take the title. And going into the final there were a whole lot of “netball experts” sitting on the fence when it came down to predicting a winner. Jacks began well by converting a turnover to open the score and then scored on their centre pass to be 2-0 up, however Richmond did exactly the same to even the ledger. Richmond soon found their rhythm and scored eight out of nine goals to take a commanding lead, while Jacks looked to be trou-
