Nelsonians live longer

A new report has found that Nelsonians have a higher life expectancy, are more active and less likely to smoke than the average Kiwi. The Nelson Marlborough District Health Board has released a profile of the region’s health and well-being ahead of a series of community engagement meetings which start today. The figures show people in the region have

a life expectancy of 82.2 years - a year longer than the average New Zealander. The top of the south population is also older than the national average with eight per cent being over 75 years, compared with six per cent across the country. It also shows that 67.1 percent of Nelson and Marlborough residents are physically active compared to the national 52.4 per cent, and that 12.8 per cent of us are daily

smokers compared to 13.7 per cent of Kiwis. The report discovered that the leading cause of preventable death in the region is coronary disease, and that youth aged 15 to 24 years in the region are at higher risk of injury and emergency department attendance than their national counterparts. There will be five community engagement

meetings across the region throughout October, and members of the public are invited to attend. The Board Chair Jenny Black and Chief Executive Chris Fleming will present on the findings and the strategic planning for the region’s services. Information on dates and times can be found at communityengagement.aspx

Support for Red Peak, but mayor wants silver fern Andrew Board Atawhai’s Paul Willis likes it so much he flies it above his house. City councillor Matt Lawrey thinks it’s so great he is planning a community event in support of it. But the “red peak” flag hasn’t won support from the city’s mayor who says she’d like to see

a silver fern on our national flag. “If I think about what we do with the flag, how we use it, if I’m going to stand at a rugby game and I’m going to wave a flag, I know what I’d feel more passionate about waving.” There are now five options for a new flag that will go to a national referendum next month.

“I think its a combination of things - a stress-free lifestyle, plenty of fresh fruit and veges and lots of outdoor activities.”

“I think people are more conscious of their health and Nelson has so much to offer for a healthy lifestyle.”

“Perhaps it’s because we have a higher concentration of wealthy retired people who look after themselves.”

“We’re a clean city and we promote healthy living in Nelson through our schools and sports.”

Support for Red Peak, but mayor wants silver fern FROM PAGE 1 The winner will then go head-tohead with the current flag in another referendum early next year. Of the five options, three have a silver fern, one has a koru while the fifth option, that was only

added after a petition to the government, is known as red peak. Rachel says if she was judging a graphic design competition red peak would win, but she says she “doesn’t get it”. “Do I think Red Peak is the answer? No, I don’t actually. I just go, what is it about? I can see the symbolism around it but is it memorable in identifying New Zealand? Will it be memorable? Will it have that longevity as something that I identify with New Zealand and I don’t think it will.” Rachel’s view isn’t shared by all of her council

above his home. The former diplomat says he served under the current flag around the world for decades. But he feels it’s time to move on and pick a new flag. “I think the current flag has served us well but I do support a new one. I didn’t think the first four flags would capture the spirit of the nation and when I saw the Red Peak flag I though it suits where were are at in the 21st century and is a good, modern alternative.” The first postal referendum of the flag debate is at the end of November.

A truck carrying 63 gas cylinders was destroyed by fire on Quarantine Rd early Monday morning.

The incident happened at around 4am and was captured on CCTV in Montgomery car park. The 23 year old was kicking windows, but then collapsed after suffering a major cut to his leg. Another man arrived on the scene and more damage was done to a nearby car.A passerby saw the collapsed man and called the police and ambulance.

Window smasher pleads guilty: A 23 year old man pleaded guilty to two charges of wilful damage at his first appearance in the Nelson District Court on Friday. Jayge David Thornicroft suffered a gash to his leg while allegedly kicking windows in the city centre early this morning.

Tool thefts: Nelson Bays Police are investigating three thefts that occurred overnight on 30 September targeting tools. Tools were stolen from a carport in Motueka. A tool box and fuel cans were stolen from a secure yard in

Richmond and a lawnmower was stolen from a shed in Redwood Valley. Senior Sergeant John Price says anyone with information about who might be responsible should contact Nelson Police. He says that while police did not have evidence to show the incidents were linked, the offending followed a similar pattern and all occurred on the same night. “It is timely to remind the public to take all reasonable precautions to keep their property safe. Unfortunately, there are dishonest people in our community who will take advantage of an opportunity such as an open or unlocked shed or vehicle. “If anyone has information about this we’d be very keen to have a chat. Also, if anyone has been offered goods they think might be stolen they should give us a call.” House prices up: House prices in Nelson and Tasman have risen around 3 per cent in the past year, according to the QV House Prince Index. In Nelson the average house price is $417,934, a 3 per cent increase on the same time last year. The average price is higher in Tasman, up 2.7 per cent to $426,852. Nationally, the residential property values for September have increased 12.6 per cent over the past year which is the fastest rate since April 2006. Values rose 4.2 per cent over the past three months and are now 30.9 per cent above the previous market peak of late 2007.

More locals choosing to study in Nelson

Nelson students have traditionally left home to gain a tertiary qualification by studying at universities around the country but the tide may be turning. An increasing number of students are preferring the cheaper option of studying closer to home, says Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology. Instead of graduating from university with a basic degree and a $60,000 student loan, NMIT director of marketing and international development, Virginia Watson, says students are realising they can get the same degree at NMIT and end up with “virtually no debt”. Virginia says there are numerous examples of Nelson students returning home from universities to continue their studies at NMIT. Laura Duquemin, 21, who left Otago University, where she was studying for a teaching degree, to do a Bachelor of Commerce at NMIT, says she came back to Nelson

It’s definitely better being home and having your friends and family around. - Laura Duquemin on studying in Nelson.

because she was more comfortable here. “I felt that university wasn’t for me.” She prefers the smaller NMIT classes and tutors that “take the time to work with you.” “Also, it’s definitely better being home and having your friends and family around,” she says. Abbey Paterson, 24, was at Canterbury University before the earthquakes and, afterwards, decided to switch to a commerce degree at NMIT. “Coming to NMIT showed me there was a better way to study,” she says. “It’s quite a different feel when tutors actually know my name.”

TRASH AND TREASURE: Coral Haussmann and Anne Williams of Nelson Musical Theatre were amongst 13 stallholders at the second annual Trash and Treasure sale. The event was established by the Soroptimist Club of Nelson as a way of raising funds to be put back into the community. Organisers from the Soroptimist Club of Nelson say they were able to raise around $2000. The use of the proceeds is still to be decided. Photo: Jessie Johnston.

A century since death of Nelson’s ‘grand old man’ Kate Russell Reporter

Bay, he supplied miners equipment to the area. It was not until his retirement in 1884 that he looked for ways to use his fortune to benefit the Nelson community. He lent 700 pounds to the Nelson Institute Library and Museum for alterations and additions to its Hardy Street building, and when the old building burned down in 1906, he gifted 500 pounds in 1911 to complete its replacement. He also helped to finance extensions and additions to Nelson hospital, and fund a new nurse’s home. In 1912 he donated 5000 pounds to the Nelson School of Music, and a loan of 2000 pounds. He also bought and installed the pipe organ that is still used there today. In the same year he paid for the continuation of the posts and chains on Rocks Rd, and gifted 1,000ha near Dun Mountain to the Nelson City Council as a public scenic and recreation reserve, known as Cawthron Park. The Nelson cathedral steps – correctly called the Cawthron Steps - were also financed entirely by Cawthron.

The best-known memorial to Cawthron is the Cawthron Institute, which his will provided for. It opened in 1921 and remains a world-class science research centre. Trust Board Secretary at the Cawthron Institute, Judene Edgar, says that he made the greatest philanthropic contribution to Nelson city. “In his day, he was known as a shrewd businessman and people didn’t understand his generosity,” she says. “There are lots of heartwarming things he did, and there were so many other sides to him.” For example, the reason he installed the chains and posts on Rocks Rd wasn’t because it looked good – it was for safety. “He did it because a man fell and was seriously injured, and he financially helped his wife, too,” says Judene. “That’s the part of Thomas we often don’t get to hear.” He was also known for helping anyone in genuine distress paying the medical bills of poor families, and supporting disaster relief funds. “He saw the future and understood the potential of the Nelson province,” says Judene. “There was no commercial gain for him - he was protecting the environmental aspect of our region.”

One of Nelson’s most prolific figures is being remembered for his contributions to the city this week, 100 years on from his death. Once described as “Nelson’s grand old man,” philanthropist Thomas Cawthron is now local household name, and without him some of the city’s most iconic landmarks and institutions would not be here today. Born 1833 in England, Thomas moved to New Zealand at the age of 15 and worked various jobs in Nelson and Wellington before moving to the Australian gold fields where he contracted to carry supplies to the miners. He returned to Nelson, where he stayed and built his fortune. He started contracting on the Dun Mountain and began lending money, at ‘appropriate interest rates,’ to his ‘less thrifty’ workmates. He also began a thriving business at Port Nelson as a shipping agent. As his investments grew, so did his profits - and he was always one to make the most of new business opportunities. When the arrival of steam ships brought an increased demand for coal, he became involved in the development of the Enner Glynn Coal Mine, and when gold was discovered in Golden

Wedding show ‘bigger and better’ Jessie Johnston

The Nelson Wedding Show was once again full to the brim with inspiration for brides and grooms-to-be. This year the event was held at Saxton Stadium and organiser Sharron Page-Moreton says she was extremely happy with the venue and how it was laid out. “It was a new venue, we were at the NMIT last year, mainly because the Trafalgar Centre was still not up and going,

so we chose to go to a bigger venue to see how it would work and it worked really well. The space was amazing, the lay out worked really well and the exhibitors were all very happy.” With over 60 exhibitors on hand for advice and the ability to help create anyone’s dream wedding, it’s no wonder the event managed to attract hundreds of people. Organisers are still to reach a final tally but they say public numbers were greater than last

year. As well as a range of exhibits including equipment hire, photographers, wedding stationery and cakes, the Nelson Wedding Show also incorporated a fashion show featuring bridal designs from New Zealand designer Sophie Voon. Organisers wish to say “a very big thank you to all the exhibitors who participated - the standard was high and feedback fantastic.” SP

Brook Sanctuary gets $100,000 boost to project

BLOOD PRESSURE CHECK: President of Rotary of Nelson, Roger Sanson, gets his blood pressure checked by St John’s Marie Albertson. Rotary and St John partnered up last Saturday to offer the public free blood pressure checks as part of the Stroke Foundation of New Zealand’s Down with Blood Pressure programme. Nelson New World saw around 150 members of the public tested between 10am and 2pm on the day, which was an increase on last year's numbers. Roger says there were also several people who were referred on for more medical assistance. Photo: Jessie Johnston.

The Brook Sanctuary Trust has received a boost of $127,000 to help complete the next stages of its development. Associate Conservation Minister Nicky Wagner yesterday announced Community Conservation Partnership Fund grants for projects in the Nelson and Marlborough regions, with support for conservation of long-tailed bats and native birds, and restoration of local wetlands. The funding will allow the trust to eradicate pests within the site, initiate pest monitoring and prepare native species for reintroduction. “The Brook Waimarama Sanctuary will allow native birds, including the New Zealand falcon, yellow-crowned parakeet, weka and robins, to flourish along with 250 species of native plants,” says Nicky. “The 715 hectare sanctuary is expected to transform the surrounding area over time as young native birds disperse from the protected site.” The fund will also provide $113,000 to help conservation efforts for the New Zealand longtailed bat in the Upper South Island, and the Grovetown Lagoon restoration project has also received funding. Nicky says she is thrilled to see a range of community conservation projects – from birds to bats to wetlands – supported in the Nelson and Marlborough regions and she looks forward to hearing about the good results in years to come.

Paula Nicholas and Cherrill Cooper believe it’s time to celebrate this wonderful nation and they’re doing it through song. Their aim, in a nutshell, is to see Kiwis come together at gathering points throughout New Zealand at 12 noon on Sunday, October 25, and sing the country’s national anthem. The event was created by the two Richmond ladies who both wished to unite the country through the words of our national anthem, and for the last few weeks preparations have been all go. “About 14 months ago I felt that people weren’t very patriotic, and when you see other countries they are very patriotic when they sing their national anthem, so I decided to download our national anthem,” says Cherrill. “I felt that we needed to get it so people could read it and understand it. I back-tobacked it by putting English on one side and Maori on the other, then I sat there and I folded it and it came to the size of a credit card, [it’s printed on paper that doesn’t rip] and it fits in your wallet.” After the idea for using them on Anzac Day failed to eventuate, Paula and Cherrill joined

Already their Facebook page has reached 60,000 people and not just within New Zealand. Many Kiwis currently living overseas have shown their love for the idea, as well as the mayor’s of Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough, and both local MPs. Set to be held on Labour Day, the event requires people to register a gathering point on the Facebook page so people can then see places where they can congregate to sing the national anthem. While a complete list of the gathering points can be found on the page at NZ Anthem

One Voice, some of the local areas include Richmond Mall, Washbourn Gardens, Richmond Baptist Church and Anzac Park in Nelson. Gathering points have also been registered in Blenheim, Picton, Christchurch and even one in Redding, USA. There is still plenty of time to register a gathering point, instructions can be found on the Facebook page, and if you are unable to attend one of the registered points. Cherrill and Paula encourage people to sing the national anthem wherever they may be. Words can also be downloaded off the events Facebook page. For more information about registering a gathering point or the event in general, email Paula and Cherrill at

Roadside car sales brings council warning

KINDY HOLIDAY FUN: Violet Duncan, 4, has fun jumping onto the zoom slide at the Grove St Kindergarten holiday programme, while Benjamin Haydock, 3, Zack Aden, 2, and Harry Robinson, 2, wait for their turn. The holiday programme runs at three kindergartens in Nelson, Richmond and Motueka and has proved to be very popular, with full sessions every day. Kids get to participate in “themed” days, teddy bears picnics, baking days, and sports sessions with Lee Corlett. Photo: Kate Russell.

Kate Russell Although it’s one of the easiest ways to sell your car, parking it on the side of a busy road with a ‘for sale’ sign in the window could actually land you with a fine. There has been an increase in cars for sale on some of Nelson’s busiest roads, which has prompted the Nelson City Council to give a “friendly reminder” to residents that there is a bylaw in place that makes it an offence. Mandy Bishop, Manager Consents and Compliance at the council, says it is happening more frequently in the weekends and the main problem areas are Waimea Rd, Main Rd Stoke, and Nayland Rd, or specific areas next to the State Highway. “The potential danger is when drivers become distracted by these vehicles or slow down to look,” she says. “Vehicles for sale on the side of the road can also reduce parks for other people and negatively impact on the look of a neighbourhood - if they start to accumulate in specific areas, the street can start to look a bit like a car yard.” “This has been an on-going issue, however from time to time this activity does increase. It often starts with one car, then others follow suit.” The council can issue infringement notices for those who breach the bylaw, which is a $40 fine, but sellers usually get a warning first. “Generally we contact the owner of the vehicle, who then removes the vehicle once they are told it is an offence,” she says. Mandy says there is no issue with a vehicle being used or driven with a ‘for sale’ sign in the window - it is only an offence if it is parked on the road or on council land, principally for the purpose of selling or storing.

Merger should be public: It is disappointing that Nelson city councillors voted to move discussion about the level of funding for regional development to be 'public excluded.' Especially because NCC commits over $1 million a year to economic and tourism service delivery. The merger of the Nelson Regional Economic Development Agency and Nelson Tasman Tourism may result in all funding going to tourism. Ratepayers have a right to open discussion of such matters. This was a key issue in the last election, but councillors have conveniently forgotten that because of vested interests. Council must be above such nonsense. Open government is the only way to discuss matters that have relevance to the levies imposed on ratepayers. Dan McGuire.

this year’s rate increases, NCC stated publicly that we had an average rate increase of 3.6 per cent. My investigation so far indicate that residential rates have actually increase between 5.2 per cent and 5.4 per cent. I further believe that NCC have tried to cover this up by adding the $198.90 water line charge on this year's rates. Also, I have found that many central city commercial properties have had rate increases of over 9 per cent, so how NCC can arrive at a 3.6 per cent average I do not know?

Fashion show to raise awareness of climate change

Entries for a "twisted fashion show" are being sought by the organisers of a climate change campaign group. ‘Hot Fashion for a Hot Planet’ is a community project run by Nelson-based campaign group 'Clean Energy Action'. It will culminate in a twisted fashion show held at the Boathouse in Nelson on 24 November 2015.

Organisers are putting out an open call to artists and climate defenders of all ages to create a piece of wearable art that expresses their feelings about climate change. This fashion show is a platform to showcase entrants' creative response to the unsettling prospect of climate change, using wearable art as a language to engage people, inspire them to take positive action and get com-

munities across the Top of the South to work together to find future-proofed solutions. Entrants can choose to model their creations on the night, or get other models to show them off. “Hot Fashion for a Hot Planet aims at mobilizing our collective creativity to deliver the most important political message of

our times and have a blast doing it with a twisted fashion party,” says one of the organisers, Verena Maeder. Depending on the quality of entries, an exhibition at the Refinery Art Space will follow, to take the message to the wider public. For more information and to enter: www.

The Stonewood Homes Nelson team is proud to unveil their latest show home, which can aptly be described as a piece of architectural genius. From their brand new ‘Your Style’ designer range, Stonewood Homes is extremely proud of what this home showcases and what the range has to offer their clients -that being an architecturally designed building, capable of meeting a number of client requirements both in size and it’s fit-out. The show home measures 239 metres square, however, if your budget, lifestyle, section or fam-

ily requirements mean you don’t need a home that size, Stonewood Homes have three other options, all mirroring the same architectural design. There are also a number of standard levels of fit-out that you can choose from, depending on your lifestyle, requirements and your budget. These options start with their first choice specification featuring more economical solutions regarding fit-out material, floor coverings and front of wall bathroom ware etc. The ‘Essential’ range goes a step up in terms of quality, style and

price. The ‘Classic’ range, which you can view first hand in their show room, is their high-spec model featuring over height doors and ceilings that create grandeur and spaciousness and premium quality fit-out materials. Add to this the ‘Eco Sure’ range and the ability to create your own spec by mixing and matching, and you have the entire spectrum covered. Clients can base their fit-out on their preferred range before selecting key areas of their home that they would like to upgrade, whether it’s the carpet, kitchen, bathroom or any other aspects of their home. Stonewood Homes Nelson is thrilled to open the

doors of their show home to the public, and while the grand opening won’t be until this weekend, there are plenty of things you can look forward to admiring. The home features the latest coloured laminex kitchen ware, stone bench tops, with a feature kitchen bulkhead, high quality tiling throughout, feature fire place, a double shower in the ensuite and in the main bathroom people will be interested in the stand alone, raised bath. The entire house has been upgraded with high spec carpet, a ducted heat pump system, the usual double glazing and, being architecturally designed, it also has quite a presence from the street.

Finding peace, energy, movement and connection, are some of the many reasons why people are seeking a Holistic Therapy in this day and age. Sarah McGuire from Gaia Journeys is NZQA-qualified in Holistic Therapies, Trigger Pointing, Hawaiian Healing Massage and Bowen Techniques.

For a full list of treatments and pricing, see With one in three women being diagnosed with cancer, it is up to companies like Curves and the community to help reduce the impact of cancer on our society. One of the key ways for women to reduce their cancer risk is through regular physical activity, which along with maintaining a healthy weight and eating a healthy diet can reduce the risk of many common cancers. This is where Curves can help! We offer a highly effective workout that takes only 30 minutes! Our Tessa Cochrane healthy eating plan is unparalleled in research and success. We will teach you how to lose weight and keep it off. The Curves community is very strong within the club and a powerful force behind helping women achieve their personal health and well-being goals. Curves and our members are proud to help Look Good Feel Better provide support services to improve the quality of life for women affected by cancer. The women of Curves can help the Look Good Feel Better charity provide practical support to women undergoing treatment for cancer. A workshop participant shared her experience of the support she received, “Being in a room with a group of people going through the same experience as you is empowering. It was a day filled with light, sunshine and Bridgette Pretty, Director Pretty Accounting Ltd, was called a “trailblazer” in the Certified Practising Accountant global InPractice magazine, after setting up one of the first New Zealand CPA-branded public practices. Bridgette says she wouldn’t use this wording for herself, but has heard it used about her parent’s Pat and Christine Pretty and grandparents Jack and Pearl Pretty. Both sets of family members are well-known in Nelson. Between them they were in the hospitality industry for a combined 60 years, 10 of which Bridgette worked with her parents. “I have inherited hard-working genes,” she says; genes that have given her an unreserved respect for people, a great sense of humour and a zest for life. When she established her accountancy practice three years ago, Bridgette chose the name “Pretty Accounting” as a nod to her heritage. Bridgette’s mother Christine is practice manager, which is quite a role reversal for the pair. The practice, recently relocated to 181 Bridge Street in Nelson and with a Motueka base, is non-corporate and friendly, complementing Bridgette and Christine’s warm, engaging personalities and personalised, plain speaking approach to accountancy. Contact Bridgette today for professional advice and services to support your business. According to local hair removal expert Anne Michelle, the only long-term, permanent solution to unwanted hair is Electrolysis, and in the hands of a trained person it is pain-reduced and permanent. With over 30 years of treating women, Anne Michelle has seen the number of men getting treatment increase as well. “Most of the guys removal is from ears, nose, upper cheeks and neck, whereas the ladies get bikini line, chin, lip, eyebrows, underarms and even toes.” While technology has significantly reduced the amount of discomfort, Anne Michelle has a variety of numbing sprays and gels on hand. “When you come into my business you get a lovely comfy chair, aromatherapy, and some soothing music to help you relax, along with some great conversations and a little bit of humour. All while I treat the hairs. I also am very aware that hair removal is a serious business for a lot of people, in particular teens and the mentally-challenged, so I work very hard to make sure my clients are happy with the results.” Anne Michelle is one of the most experienced electrologists and backs this up by specialising only in this field. Open two days a week in Richmond and one day in Nelson, she welcomes any enquiry. “If I can see it, I can take it……..permanently!”

Nelson motorbike dealer impresses world’s best Kaka new home It’s been a long time since Triumph have held anywhere near their current market share, but thanks to dealers like Filco Farm and Sport they are now leading the New Zealand sales of larger bikes. Triumph specialise in 660 cc right up to the largest production bike, the Triumph Rocket, at 2300 cc. Regional export manager for Asia Pacific Triumphs, Mark McConnell, has visited the local Triumph dealer with a view to helping owner Dave Filer establish a “one world” showroom. Common around the world for major franchises but not so much motorcycles, it’s where the manufacturer picks strategic dealerships and makes them all the same, no matter where in the world you are. The benefits are huge to the customers and it makes delivering the perfect sale and service much more streamlined. Also, the range of Triumph product and accessories is extremely vast.

Four kaka have been introduced to their new home in the Abel Tasman National Park. The four female kaka are the first to be returned to the Abel Tasman National Park as part of the work of DOC and environmental trust Project Janszoon. The birds left DOC’s Te Anau Wildlife Centre by road early last week en route to Invercargill and an Air New Zealand flight to Christchurch. They then flew by charter flight to Takaka for the blessing at the Golden Bay Marae. The final leg of their journey involved a helicopter flight to a purpose-built aviary at Wainui Hut in the upper reaches of the Abel Tasman National Park. The kaka come from existing captive populations and have been raised in Te Anau, Dunedin and Invercargill. Kaka are very vulnerable to predators, and while there are historic accounts of large numbers in the Park in the late 1800s, only a handful remain and it is thought these are all male birds. Pest control undertaken by Project Janszoon means the relocated birds will have a good chance of re-establishing a kaka population in the area.

There has been a great deal of coverage in the recent media concerning Methamphetamine (P) and, while it may seem like this is a new problem for New Zealand, its manufacture and use has been a significant problem over the past 15 years. Many people ask what effect Meth has on their lives as they have never had any interaction with drugs before and consequently don’t see the Meth problem as a hazard. Unfortunately, as many people have come to experience, both manufacturing Meth and smoking it for personal use leaves extremely harmful contamination in a property. If you purchase or live in a home carrying harmful residue, you will also become a victim of the Meth problem. Meth Screen provides a professional and discreet Meth residue screening service to help ensure you have peace of mind over your home or property purchase. Owner Kev Taylor dedicates a great deal of time delivering free presentations to various property professionals and anyone else who is interested in learning more about the problem which is present here in the Nelson region. Anyone purchasing a property should undertake a check for Methamphetamine contamination, so give Meth Screen a call today.

Play a true story about loss ject Butterfly. “I took it to Project Butterfly because it seemed to have the same objectives,” says Darryl. “Eight years after my son died I wrote a story, it was entered in a short story competition and was placed in that. “Then I thought I could do better than that, because neither my wife or I felt there was much use for a gravestone or plaque. But this play shows that people to whom this happens, are not alone.” Darryl wrote the play five years ago and says the audience will need tissues. The show will be performed over three nights and proceeds will go to Project Butterfly for their cuddle cots. It opens at 7.30pm on Thursday, October 8, and runs until Saturday night.

Forty years of pain won’t be eased, but for Nelson man Darryl Ware it will hopefully let other parents who have lost a young child know that they are not alone. Darryl and his wife lost their son when he was a toddler. Darryl says it is something you never get over but writing about his experiences is a positive way to remember his boy. “It happened to our family nearly 40 years ago. It’s a circumstance that you don’t get over, you just learn to place it in the rest of your life and if you can get on with it well and good, but a lot of people don’t get on with it,” he says.

SPORT Stoke athlete competes in a dozen events at Masters Games Locally Owned and Operated

Stoke's Jacinda Beyer-Rieger only intended competing in three events at the NZCT South Island Masters Games which ended after nine days of competition in Nelson on Sunday. But that soon changed with Jacinda entering "11 or 12" events as she got carried away in the excitement of the games. The 48-year-old was one of 2200 athletes who participated in the games and, like Jacinda, many of them competed in more than one of the 42 sports. "I started with three events, but then I

thought I'd try athletics as well," Jacinda says. "I hadn't done it since school but it was so much fun." "I started with the 200m and got a bronze in that, and then thought I'll try the 3000m and I won gold Then I tried the javelin - I'd never thrown a javelin in my life and had to get someone to show me how to do it and I won a silver." "Each day I'd go to the registration and say 'what am I going to do today.' I just kept putting the entry fee on my husband's credit card."

"I think I ended up doing 11 or 12 events. It was an absolutely amazing week. " Sport Tasman's event organiser Rita Merriman says Jacinda was one of the many competitors who "got caught up in the fun of the games and entered in more events." Nelson's Lyn Smith, 52, was another enthusiastic athlete, competing in 10 different sports, while Upper Moutere 81-yearold Arthur Dunkley entered in a number of track and field events, winning the 5km cross-country run in a respectable 34 minutes 49 seconds. "Things like cycling and

athletics have a lot of events that are similar so people tend to enter two or three events in those sports, but a lot of people just give everything a go," she says. Rita says the games were a big success with the three new sports, Waka Ama, standup paddle boarding and indoor triathlon, proving especially popular. She says all the events were well run thanks to the hard work of sports coordinators and an army of 250 volunteers. Nelson will be hosting the South Island Masters Games again in 2017.

Inline hockey team wins national champs Nelson Waimea gun club results

Andrew Board

Nelson’s Inline Hockey team are national champions after an overtime win in Hamilton last week. Nelson Whalers won the senior men’s grade at nationals, the first time in the club’s history. Goalie Sean McShea won MVP goalie of the tournament, while Vinnie Fuller won MVP player of the grade. The Whalers got off to a tough start, playing the first nine minutes of their first pool match without their star goalie, who was late due to a flight delay. The score was 2-2 when Sean arrived, but once he went in goal the Nelson side ran out 11-7 winners. Nelson then beat New Plymouth Ravens 9-1, Manawatu 8-2 and Rimutaka Renegades 5-2 to remain undefeated heading into the semi-final. There, the Whalers beat the Hamilton Devils 4-2. In the final Nelson played Mount Wellington Panthers,
