The Heroesin our communityby Franklin Mayor Mark BallMy awareness of what is donein our community by volunteersreally focused with the nationalcelebration of Volunteers Day.When we began looking locallyat all the volunteering sections,individually, each of those peopledid a little bit, but collectively, theydid a huge amount. When we didour sums, based just on the basic wage, it ran into billions ofdollars worth of time and effort given freely to help others. Thecontribution of our volunteers is massive and we can never repaythat.Volunteers are our heroes and to me, the heroes of ourcommunity are the mums and dads. They are the ones helpingtheir schools and supporting kids’ sport. Decades later, whenthe kids have grown, many continue to serve. I look back to mychildhood and my parents set a great example.Franklin is disproportionately represented on the positiveside with our volunteers. We can still field sports teams and stillfill our positions on boards of trustees, while in larger centreslike Auckland, they are really struggling. Parents who take aninterest in their kids, encourage them in sport and have someonethere for them when they get home from school, support familyand community values. If you have a look at the professionalsports around the globe, many are struggling because they arerun just as businesses. Sure the business model is important,but we must never forget or let go of the social component. Itis about finding that balance. In the main, amateur sport inNew Zealand continues to thrive because their backbone is thevolunteer, the parent.I am in awe of those people. We have a huge number ofvolunteers in Franklin compared to other communities – outthere day and night, making Franklin ‘tick.’ We have theminvolved in community activities like PTAs and Plunket, serviceclubs like Lions and Rotary, support groups like Hospice andCamp Quality and those making the place safer like FireFighters and Night Patrols. It is so obvious that they all play avital role in the overall health and wellbeing of our community.We all need a focus, a single day to reflect on what it means tobe a New Zealander. Previous governments considered it may beWaitangi Day, so they changed the name to New Zealand Daybut it didn’t provide the impetus, the pride in our nationhoodthat New Zealand was looking for. It’s not about politics orthrowing mud at politicians. What has evolved over the pastfew years is Anzac Day. We’ve seen unprecedented numbersturn out across New Zealand, and certainly in Franklin, withsome 2,000 at the Dawn Parade in Pukekohe this year. It hasreally given us that single day on our calendar where we canacknowledge our heroes of war, but we can also acknowledge theboy scouts, the girl guides, the territorialists, the navy reservists,our volunteer fire fighters, police, and all the women who workbehind the scenes - those who represent us at our Anzac paradeswho, on a daily basis put their lives at risk or quietly support ourcommunity. Anzac Day is an opportunity for us to acknowledgethem, while we acknowledge our war heroes. It’s our real HeroesDay, to celebrate something very special – our caring community.Why Franklin Is Such AnIncredible Community!by Dr Paul Hutchison,MP for HunuaCommunity spirit in Franklin is thestrongest of anywhere I have comeacross in New Zealand, or, for thatmatter, anywhere in the world!The fact that over five hundredpeople packed the Pukekohe TownHall at short notice and with almostno advertising, to express theirstrong view that Franklin should remain separate from the so-called ‘SuperCity’ speaks volumes. By far the majority were there to demonstrate howmuch they cared about the values and community spirit of Franklin!They see it as unique, quite different from urban Auckland, andsomething to be very proud of. The hundreds of letters and emails I havereceived personally, and those published in our local papers overwhelminglyexpress that there is something very special about our community.Franklin is rich in both unsung as well as acknowledged heroes andheroines. From the ranks of the unsung are thousands of selfless peoplewho dedicate their time and energies to helping others in the community.They come out of the woodwork to help in their thousands whenthe call is make. From the huge attendance supporting cancer researchthrough ‘Relay For Life’, to the incredible work done by Franklin Hospice,The Christian Community Centre, Riding for the Disabled, Habitatfor Humanity and countless clubs and organizations like Lions, Rotary,Probus, RSA and church groups.Having spent much of my former life as a surgeon living close to big cityhospitals, I was bemused when first seeking selection to become Memberof Parliament for Port Waikato, to be told I must go to the calf club days.Calf club days epitomize the classic Kiwi school community celebratingthe land. Everyone goes; from the babe in arms to the oldest granny. Insome schools, there is fierce competition for the ‘dad’ who can bake the bestcake. I could hardly believe the elaborate details of the cakes from PollockSchool where rival men, seven foot tall, would set aside their tractors andmilk sheds to spend days designing the winning masterpiece – only to haveit auctioned, and eaten, all for the common good.Franklin has the whole spectrum of activities supported by a vast rangeof organizations – historical societies, Waiuku Woodturners, AwhituLandcare, the Kariaotahi Surf Life Saving Club, the Tahuna Marae gym,Plunket, Playcentre, the Matakawau Fair… and the list goes on.A year ago I brought the Hon Chris Finlayson into Franklin to talkto people involved with Arts and Culture. He was stunned and amazedby the vast number of people involved. He heard about the annual ArtsFestival, the Pukekohe Light Opera Company and was inspired by thededication of those involved with the new Onewhero Performing ArtsCentre. Underpinning each of these organizations are committed peoplepassionate about our area. Every type of sports organization in the bookfrom horse and motor racing to hang gliding, from rugby to netball, soccer,cricket and clay pigeon shooting are represented. Counties ManukauSports does an amazing job!At every A & P Show the Lions are always there and Rotary gives hugeservice to our community.On ANZAC Day, at every little hamlet and town, people gather ingreater numbers, year by year, to remember the sacrifices of those who havegiven us the freedom we now enjoy.Franklin has extraordinary national beauty and diversity, but what makesit truly incredible is expressed by that well known Maori sayinghe aha te mea nui he tangata he tangataWhat is the most important thingIt is people, it is people.Advertising sales 09 239 1699, sales@elocal.co.nz www.elocal.co.nz 9

It’s very exciting to behere and share my design knowledge with you!Just a little intro:Having completed my training with Sylvia Sanford and discoveringI had an addiction to houses and design, I set about finding a positionin the work force to satisfy this. I took on a position at Levenes as acurtain consultant to broaden my knowledge and to indulge in mylove of fabrics.An opportunity then arose to join Resene Paints Ltd. This leadto a long partnership with the company as a consultant and in amanagement role. Needing more time to devote to PicturebookInteriors, I joined the team at Midas Tiles on a part time basis.This gave me the time I needed and the opportunity to broaden myproduct knowledge in another field.A little villa attached to the church at 12 Wesley Street inPukekohe became available for rent at the same time as I was lookingfor a permanent home for Picturebook Interiors. I instantly fell in lovewith it, rented it, and was astounded to find it was in near originalcondition. Slowly but surely the renovations are proceeding.I am very fortunate to be sharing the villa with two wonderfulladies, Barbara and Maxine. Barbara has been creating andmanufacturing curtains and blinds for a considerable number ofyears, both in the UK and New Zealand. Each commission she takeson is treated with the utmost care and attention and the look of thefinished product is the main driving force behind her passion. MaxineMcCort, a massage therapist, sub rents the original parson’s study.The ambiance of the villa drew her to it, and she and her clients agree,there is something very special about 12 Wesley Street.My passion is colour, fabric and texture and making something wonderfulout of nothing. This has lead to presenting seminars for Resene at theAuckland Home Shows on colour and design for the past two years.I am also a consultant to the Property Profilers. They gave me aninteresting consultancy at a Kohimaramara home which was to besold at auction and was in desperate need of a little TLC. This lead toan item on TV One’s close up programme which showed the housein its very raw state and again after its ‘makeover’, highlighting whatto do when marketing properties for sale. I had my knowledge of TVbroadened. We filmed for several hours for it to be squeezed into two5 minute segments!Each month I will be covering a different design topic. We willalso have the ‘Tip of the Month’ and a ‘Tricks of the Trade’ section.I would love readers to send questions to me via email - all questionsand answers will be personally answered and posted in the blogsection of my web site. I will then select one question a month to befeatured in eLocal.Till next month, take those fur throw rugs out of storage, investin a new minkie blanket and curl up with a great magazine, one onbeautiful homes of course, and a box of delicious chocolates.Enjoy!

Jackie with Megan, aged two monthsFamily’s life ruined bynightmare birth“I watched it happen.That’s what they did tomy wife and daughter”week scan, she was still saying it was a 6lb baby.”Mike: “The midwife told us we could have another scan justbefore the due date, but that it was bad for the baby to get scanafter scan and repeated that it was just fluid. We were first timeparents. She was very confident so we thought it was all good. Wedidn’t look at the paper work until later – with six weeks to gobefore she was due, the child was then about 6lb. It doesn’t take arocket scientist to tell that the child was going to gain weight overthe final weeks and would not be 6lb at birth.”On March 26 2005, Jackie went into labour at 3 o’clock in themorning. The midwife arrived just before 8am and the couple wentto Pukekohe Maternity Unit, where a water birth was planned.Jackie was assessed and told to “get pushing”. The midwife decidedto “speed things up” by breaking Jackie’s waters. The result was atiny trickle – there was hardly any fluid. Jackie was right - it wasall baby. The midwife ignored the warning sign and told Jackieto push. She said Jackie was fully dilated. “She got a colleague tocheck how my baby was positioned.” At 1pm, an ambulance tookJackie to Middlemore. In the ambulance the midwife told thecouple: “physically the baby will not fit – it looks like it’s going tobe a caesarian.” At Middlemore Hospital, the examining doctortold Jackie she was not fully dilated.Mike: “At the hospital the doctor spoke about an epidural.Jackie was in a lot of pain. The doctor looked at her briefly, thenwas called away. This happened ½ a dozen times. He would startto examine her and be interrupted by his pager. At one stage hewas holding his pager while he was examining her. I believe henever had a decent time to properly examine Jackie. He couldn’tconcentrate and overlooked the severity of the situation. Thehospital later sent us an ‘advocate’ email to apologise for this actionand the lack of communication by the doctor, but he subsequentlydenied the incident with the pager had ever happened, to theHealth and Disability enquiry. I was there. I witnessed all of it. ”At 6pm, Jackie was told about what to expect for a caesarian andwas prepped. An hour later the plan was abandoned without tellingthe Feltons what was going on. Jackie was told to continue pushing.“The midwife told me that if I didn’t push, I might get a caesarian,and I would regret it.”Mike was by this stage becoming extremely agitated. “I thought,how urgent is our case? Now we are on the backburner. A seniormidwife examined Jackie and mentioned an “asian pelvis” and thatJackie was extremely dry. We later found there had been a study ofmixed race births out for two years, because of the difficulties withthe size of asian pelvises. They should have known about that at thehospital. The senior midwife did.”“The doctor came back at 9pm and said “let’s have a baby.”He unpacked the vontuce equipment, with suction cap, to pullthe child out. The head appeared, but soon the doctor was very“We were expecting our first child and were delightedwhen the scan showed it was a little girl. But at the laterstages of pregnancy, we were both uneasy. Jackie washuge. People asked if we were having twins. We wentback to the midwife several times and asked her aboutthe size of the baby. She kept assuring us it was a 6lbbaby, with a lot of fluid.”Mike and Jackie Felton of Pukekohe continued to beconcerned. Jackie, who is Chinese, could feel the babywas big. “I was packed. The baby filled me. I asked if Iwas eating too much, I was so concerned. We asked themidwife more than 10 times about its size, but at the 3214Megan in Intensive Care at Middlemore


nervous, he was sweating. I noticed that there was nothingregistering on the monitoring screen. The child was jammed.People pressed down on Jackie’s stomach. They had her push atall bizarre angles. Others pulled at the child. Hospital records sayit took five minutes to get the child fully out. It was a total messup.Our midwife was dry retching in the corner. ICU peoplewere hovering just outside the door and worked for 20 minutes toresuscitate Megan.’Megan’s birth weight was 10lb. She was whisked to ICU, withMike by her side. “At ICU the care was completely different. Onedoctor broke off his holidays to come in and keep Megan alive. Ifonly the care had been that good for the delivery.”The day after Megan’s birth, the delivering doctor and a seniordoctor came to Jackie’s room to try to smooth over the trauma.They told her that it had been a “textbook delivery” and to “getover it.” Jackie was in a room where other mothers had theirbabies and Mike asked if she could be moved to a room on herown. She was taken to a room that was infested with fleas, withceiling tiles missing; a room they found out later was in line forfumigation. Meanwhile, Megan remained in intensive care for amonth, with tubes to keep her alive. When she came home, thenightmare was not over. A tube stayed in Megan’s nose to feedher intravenously. She was a very sick little girl. The Feltons’ longbattle had just begun.Mike and Jackie had been assured at several meetingswith hospital management that they would be given everyassistance to obtain help for Megan through ACC. But it wasjust the opposite. It took a year for the Health and Disabilitycommissioner to release his findings. He found that “the midwifedid a satisfactory job and there was no breach.” The doctor wasfound to be in breach of Right 4(1) of the Code, “in failing toexercise reasonable care and skill in this aspect of his obstetricmanagement.” He was found to have failed to read the CTGmonitor correctly, that he should have done other tests forthe wellbeing of the child but didn’t and that he should haveconsulted with a superior about the length and difficulty of thelabour. He was asked to apologise to the Feltons. Instead, he leftthe country during the investigation. An apology followed later,through his lawyer in Australia.One doctor advised ACC that “the child’s wellbeing was upand down all the way. At the hospital Jackie was given drugs thatwere not appropriate for the situation, with the non reassuringCTG. ..there was significant delay in the delivery of babyMegan, especially during the late first stage and second stageof labour.” They heard also that ante natal scans on November3 and February 8 both showed above average in foetal growth.Astonishingly, the commissioner’s verdict was that Megan’s braininjuries were due to “unforeseen circumstances, not an accident.”ACC followed that finding by denying the Feltons help forMegan, stating that Megan was brain damaged because hershoulders got stuck during delivery. “I know it’s not right,” saysMike. “There were too many indicators before the delivery thatMegan was too big to be born without a caesarian.”An independent world leader in the field of brain damage inutero, paediatric scientist Professor Peter Gluckman, reviewedthe case for the Feltons. He concluded that Megan’s injuries werecaused by ”medical mishap.” He questioned why the ethnicityof the mother and the size of the baby were not picked up. Hesaid there was “early compromise of the foetal brain…that CTGevedence suggested foetal tachycardia and loss of heart ratevariability from the initial recording”. “Properly given treatmentwould not be expected to result in birth injuries as serious asthose suffered by Megan.” (see footnote 1)HDC countered thisJoinThe Questpage 16Advertising sales 09 239 1699, sales@elocal.co.nzTo Help Support Those In NeedElocal Will Donate $25 To A CharityOf Your Choice With Every BookPurchased $49.95LIMITED EDITION“We at elocal consider this June ‘FranklinHeroes’ edition a vital publication to our uniqueFranklin area. elocal are proud to be part of astrong, healthy community who really do rollup the sleeves and ‘muck-in’.

Mike and Jackie Felton with Enya (left) and Meganby refusing to recognise the professor’s qualifications. (ProfessorGluckman has just been appointed Chief Science Advisor toPrime Minister John Key). The Feltons were on their own, with aseverely brain damaged child.A year later, a second daughter, Enya was born. This time, thecouple sought specialist care and delivered at Auckland Hospital– by caesarean. “I was crying during the delivery. The doctor askedme what was wrong. I said –it’s because it is so easy. Why didn’tthey do this for my Megan?” says Jackie.Before Megan’s birth, Mike worked as an engineer and Jackiewas a bank officer. The couple had everything to look forward toas they started their family. When they took Megan home, theirlives changed forever. Jackie realised that if Megan continuedto be fed through her nose, she would lose all sensation in hermouth. Jackie removed the tube and began a painstaking labourof love – to feed Megan for hours each day, constantly monitoringto ensure the helpless child received enough nourishment.Authorities who visited gave the impression that Megan wouldbe taken and placed in care if the tube was not replaced, but thecouple stuck to their conviction that Megan would improve, withtime and effort.That effort is enormous. Megan’s care is 24/7. Two hours ofsleep a night is the norm. “We sometimes meet in the hall atmidnight,” says Mike. “With so little sleep, it was impossible tokeep my job. I’m a fulltime caregiver, helping Jackie look afterEnya and Megan. After four years, it’s taken its toll. Our healthis bad, but we won’t give up on Megan or give her away. We liveon a sickness benefit, with a disability allowance for Megan.That doesn’t nearly cover our expenses. It costs $300 a week justto meet Megan’s needs. She is at the doctor’s all the time withthroat infections. Jackie takes her to conductive education threetimes a week in Auckland – that costs $150 in fuel and diesel tax.She should go everyday, but we can’t afford it. We are paying amortgage and use the credit card to get basics like food. WINZhas given us emergency allowances for food. I hate asking for helplike that, but we’ve tried all appropriate avenues and we can’t doanymore. Our house is a shell, we’ve sold almost everything. Atrip to Pak n Save is our only family outing. Enya suffers, becauseMegan takes so much of our attention. We have no life at all, but wehave to keep going.”When Megan was 2 ½ the Feltons used all their savings totake Megan to China to receive a mix of traditional and moderntreatments over 1 ½ years. Megan responded well, but with moneyrunning out and Enya needing an urgent eye operation, the familyreturned to New Zealand. “Megan has improved so much withJackie’s perseverance. The intensive rehabilitation in China helped,but we learnt that the outcome would have been better if we hadtaken her there between 6 and 18 months of age. She can crawl tothe door and can feed, suck and drink.”When asked what, of all their needs, was the most important,Mike replied. “We want to take Megan to Germany for stem celltreatment while her brain is still developing. Bone marrow wouldbe taken from her hip, sent to England to be purified, then injectedback into her spine. There have been good results for cerebralpalsy with the treatment. We believe those two simple operationsare what is needed to bring her to the next level of improving herquality of life. We will never stop fighting for that.” Mike andJackie are prepared to sell their home to pay for the two week trip toDusseldorf, treatment and accommodation – estimated at $25,000.Megan is a beautiful child. As Jackie finishes feeding her, Mikelifts Megan from her chair and lies her on the floor, where she graspsa toy and rolls around. She listens to the music on the TV, dances,jigging on her knees and smiles with pleasure. Enya clamoursfor her parents’ attention, while Mike moves quickly from one tothe other. He never relaxes, driven by anger and frustration at hispowerlessness to protect his wife and daughter that fateful day fouryears ago.Jackie: “I know that my lovely daughter is trapped in there, andwon’t ever stop helping her find her way out.”Footnote1 - Professor Gluckman’s quote was supplied by Dr. Paul Hutchison,MP for Hunua.Editor: Mike and Jackie would like to personally thank Dr PaulHutchison and Barbara Knowles of the Hunua Electorate Office for theirconstant support over three years, Stuart Keven who donated a loungesuite and single bed and everyone who is getting behind them.

Men from all walks oflife often ignore health symptoms and delay seeing thedoctor when if seen earlier, preventative treatment couldhave been taken.Cardiovascular disease is still the highest cause of death inNew Zealand men. Often simple measures like controllingblood pressure, cholesterol and testing for diabetes have notbeen done, basically because men have been apparentlytoo busy to have a check up.A ‘Well Man’s Check’ at your doctor would also check manyother things. This check would include checking for weight,alcohol and smoking status, your family history, a skin cancercheck, exercise levels, stress/mood as well as blood and urinetests.Cancer is the second biggest killer. Lung cancer still has thehighest cancer death rate in New Zealand. Ask your medicalprofessional about smoking cessation support. Medicationslike nicotine replacement therapy can increase your chanceof success by 50%, especially if given as part of a supportivestop smoking programme which can even be web based.Bowel cancer is the second leading cause of cancer. It isimportant to report any rectal bleeding or a change in theway your bowel works to your doctor. A family history ofbowel cancer substantially increases your risk. Bowel cancerscreening is undertaken overseas and soon to be trialed inNew Zealand.Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer(other than skin cancer) and is the 3rd largest cause ofcancer death. In New Zealand around 2 500 men arediagnosed with prostate cancer each year and around 600men will die from it. Although screening men who don’t havesymptoms is controversial, many men choose to have aprostate check as part of a ‘Well Man’s Check’. This isespecially important if there is a family history of prostatecancer. This would involve a PSA blood test and sometimes aphysical examination.TuakauDr. Lightbody ReserveSunday 7th June10am-12pmPukekoheBledisloe ParkSunday 14th June1am-3pm18Port WaikatoMarae Fields, Stack RdSunday 21st June1pm-3pmWaiukuHamilton Estate FieldsSunday 28th June1pm-3pm


“I thought they were mountains – but theywere rubbish heaps as big as the Bombay Hills.People were living there...”Boyd’s trips with Tear Fund were life changingWhen Boyd Maxwell of Pukekohe joined Tear Fund as anAdvocate three years ago, he wasn’t prepared for the impact ofseeing thousands of people living on rubbish dumps in India, orthe same struggle for survival in the Philippines.“I had seen the images on TV and believed in what Tear Fund wasdoing, but to actually experience it has meant I will never be thesame again,” says Boyd. “Two years ago I went to India with TearFund for three weeks, to New Delhi, Mumbai and Hydrebad. WhatI experienced was both humbling and inspiring. It was my first timein slums, and despite a preparatory DVD before our group of peoplefrom all over New Zealand left, to be honest, I wasn’t prepared forit.”123“We were welcomed in Delhi by a group of beautifully dressedchildren, singing and dancing – they were just delightful. Thenwe walked across the road to the slums where they lived. Tenthousand people were living there, on one big rubbish dump.Homes were made from bits of tin for the roof with bags hangingover the sides – up to eight people would live there. There’s asmell that’s hard to explain – no electricity, no water, no sewerage.We found out that the pigs around the place were what cleanedup the sewerage. There are always fires burning – that’s for thebodies of those who have died the day before. These people areconsidered the ‘Untouchables,’ they are born there and die there,with no one keeping any records – that’s hard to understand in ourorganised society. Anyone can end up there, by going out of work,for example.And yet, in those appalling conditions, there are the mostinspiring people working. One amazing doctor has trained over80 women who can’t read or write to be midwives and to take careof minor medical things. This doctor works like that in over 16slums.My role as an Advocate was to observe what is being doneby Tear Fund and Compassion and to come back to report onthe work. Sometimes people say that the problem is too big,that nothing can change it – but the difference in the lives offamilies who are helped and for the children who are sponsored isenormous. People in Tear Fund centres are bright with hope; theyare receiving something that gives them not just survival, but a reallife and future.I’ve just come back from the Philippines – the same slums, thesame situation.

4a thing’ she was living in cost her 750 pesos a month and she wasfour months behind with the rent. They were all about to be putout onto the streets. This is not uncommon, but because the babywas funded by Compassion, Tear Fund and Compassion were awareof the situation and someonewould go in to help. Althoughit is an understandable reactionto want to give money for rent,Tear Fund is very careful thatfunds are used for long termbenefits. There is a move torelocate people from the slumsinto the country, where theyare helped and absorbed intorural communities. People therehave no money either, but fruitlike coconut and pineapples isgrowing all around and there isa chance for a better life.In the Philippines, we sawwhere villagers were helped toharness a spring to bring waterinto the village. They had tomake a financial contributionand provide labour – then they‘owned’ the project and wouldtake care of it.In Manila, we looked at a Kaibegon shelter for slum dwellers.Some of those helped had been hard core criminals – in gangs,drug users and pushers. They now work to help other slumdwellers. Their transformation makes them ideal to understandthe problems facing people living like this, and their example giveshope that people’s lives can be changed.”Helping people start small business is an integral part of thework by Tear Fund. Called micro enterprise, people are given smallloans which they pay back into the loan fund once their businessis making a profit. The idea has been a huge success worldwide,giving people who have nothing but their skills and imaginationa chance to provide for themselves and their families – oftenproviding employment for others.David Bussau was a New Zealand entrepreneur who decidedthat if people like himself could make a fortune, then people givena chance to start their own businesses in Third World countriescould become self sufficient. He wanted to give something back.David was abandoned as a child and raised in orphanages andboys’ homes, so he could relate to those who come from toughcircumstances. He was a builder who went to Indonesia in 1975to help rebuild a village destroyed by an earthquake. Under hisguidance, the villagers also built a small dam to provide water.New businesses Bussau loaned money to in Bali becameprosperous and since then, his idea of economic empowermentthrough Tear Fund has spread across the world – a new jobis created every 30 seconds somewhere in the Third World.Commercial solutions to social problems have now touched 20million people world-wide. David Bussau proved that even a smallamount of help could make a huge difference and turn the tide ofpoverty and suffering. He called the aftermath of the Boxing Daytsunami ‘the worst natural disaster I’ve ever seen,’ but was soonengaged in showing people how to recycle the shattered buildingmaterials left behind and to start again.Boyd: “My two trips with Tear Fund have left me with somevivid impressions. One was of two little plastic toys, still in theirplastic wrapping, stuck to the wall in a family home. They wouldhave cost about $2 here, but they were there for the five kids tolook at. I went to a house in New Zealand, where there was ahuge heap of soft toys piled against a wall. Some people have somuch, and some so little. I am sure the children in the slums of22

airway management. Our vehicle is packed in separate sections withspecialist equipment for the role that we do. Everyone who is qualifiedin the ambulance service will tell you it’s mainly first aid that sees youthrough, along with being calm and having a lot of common sense. Ihave had some bizarre calls – even for a stubbed toe. But there are alsothe little old ladies who finally call after suffering severe chest pain forhours, but didn’t want to bother anyone. It’s better to call for help if youcan’t cope, that’s what we are here for.What is the procedure followed for callouts?We first assess and stabilise the patient, calling for an ambulance if oneis necessary and when we are called for backup, we assist the paramedics.Sometimes an ambulance isn’t necessary and patients can go to hospitalby car. We aren’t doctors but are specialists in what we do, dealing withpre-hospital situations and ensuring patients receive the care they need.INTERVIEWRAPID RESPONSEadvanced paramedicsready to answer the callMike van de Westerlo is an Advanced Paramedic, one of four in theSpecialist Emergency Response Team (SERT), with the Order of StJohn, in its busy Northern Region. The team cover a large area fromSilverdale in the north to Mercer/Meremere in the south and providevital backup for ambulance services in Pukekohe and Waiuku, aswell as working closely with the police and the fire service.What is the role of the St John Ambulance Specialist EmergencyResponse Team?We have four fulltime staff, who provide a 24/7 cover, working two dayand two night shifts to ensure one advanced paramedic is available allthe time. We are all advanced paramedics who are employed as rapidresponse if no ambulance is immediately available or if an ambulancecrew calls for backup. We also support the Police Armed OffendersSquad, Police Search and Rescue and the Fire Service, we have been asfar south as Rotorua and Te Kuiti in that role.What kind of callouts do you receive?The majority of our calls are medical, with trauma – road or workaccidents – comprising around 10-15% of the work. Our workload hasincreased significantly in recent years from one or two callouts a day tosometimes 12-14 a day if not more. We never know what will comeup, every day and every job is different. We can be sent anywhere andeverywhere. I call what we do ‘Advanced First Aid with Toys,’ referringto such things as defibrillator, cardiac drugs, IV access and advancedHow much call is there for Armed Offenders backup?We are called to an Armed Offenders situation at least once or twice aweek, sometimes more – that frequency is just a fact of life. Our primaryrole is to provide close tactical medical support to the police, victims,bystanders and the offender. SERT was officially set up in 2001 afterthe Schlaepfer shootings which occurred at Paerata about 17 years ago,where there were multiple casualties and a huge turnout by the ArmedOffenders Squad. It was realised that some form of permanent tacticalmedical response was needed.How risky is your role as a SERT paramedic?Every job we attend in the service carries a risk - if at any stage we feelthreatened, we leave and call the police. Yet when working with thepolice, our level of response is dictated by the level of threat.How is the Order of St John Ambulance Service funded?The bulk is funded by donations, bequests, Ministry of Health, ACCand District Health Boards and patient-part charges. There are just twoambulances, one based at Pukekohe, the other at Waiuku, to cover theFranklin area, usually with a single paramedic attending callouts, so morevolunteers are immensely important.What decided you to become a paramedic?I had gone as far as I could in my previous job and wanted somethingmore challenging. I joined the Ambulance Service at the bottom as avolunteer at Pukekohe, then while working fulltime as a paramedic allthrough South Auckland, Pukekohe, Papakura, Manukau, Howick andOtara, I enrolled at university and studied part time for 3 ½ years.I qualified as an Advanced Paramedic in 2006 and completed my degreeas well as the selection course for SERT in 2007.My wife Amanda is also a paramedic, so we often swap work stories as aform of stress relief.The service will train you to paramedic level; the next stage is to enrolin university and train to be an Advanced Paramedic. Others push onto obtain a Bachelor of Health Science (Paramedics) degree. The otheroption is to go straight to university for three years and on completion todo a 2-3 year internship with St John.If you want a career in the ambulance service, I would advise joining as avolunteer. The internal training will put you on the right path. Some ofour volunteers go into the city and work with crews to gain more clinicalexposure. It’s definitely an exciting job, interspersed with periods ofboredom, but quiet days are few and far between. Pukekohe and Waiukuare no longer the sleepy hollows they used to be.26Support your local business www.elocal.co.nz

Gardeningwith ShannonLOOKS LIKE WINTER HAS DEFINITELY HIT US!Cold winds, heavy rain and a lot of mud everywhere. Are you sickof muddy shoes and dirt getting trampled inside? I bet if it’s not thekids, it’s the cat bringing little muddy footprints into the house andas a result you’ve been thinking about getting the carpet cleaned?Forget about that; why not fix the problem once and for all:Concrete or hot mix your driveway: maybe you have built andmade do with a gravel drive and mud is showing through in placesand gravel is getting washed off. Now might be a good time to lookat concreting or hot mix, which might be a cheaper option.Install a soak pit to get rid of those nasty puddles.Lay a pathway: maybe you have a narrow strip beside your houseand boundary that has more mud then grass? How about makingit low maintenance with a concrete pebble or aggregate pathway orjust simply with stepping-stones and pebbles.Create a patio area: patio areas can be made with pavers or concretewith ornamental cuts and grouted between to look like pavers. Thisalso is maintenance free, with no gaps for weeds to grow in.There are all sorts of solutions to prevent the mud problem; youjust need to think creative.Sometimes it’s handy to have a useable outdoor living area,somewhere to relax and put your feet up. Maybe you’re thinkingyou can’t enjoy the outdoors during winter, but how about anoutdoor sheltered area such asA covered-in spa pool areaAn outdoor room or hutClosing in your patio areaSo what needs to be done in the garden?Bare areas in the veggie garden can be sown in a cover crop ofmustard.Remove moss from your lawn by using ‘Sulphate of Iron’. Thiswill adjust any deficiencies in your lawn and you’ll find your lawnturning a dark green.As soon as lemons are close to being ripe they should be pickedbecause the frosts will make them bitter and dry.Do you want new fruit or citrus trees? Now is a good time to plantthem.Any existing deciduous trees in your garden can be trimmed assoon as their leaves have dropped.If you have dahlias in your garden remove the tubers as soon as thetops die back or cover with a layer of mulch to protect from frosts.Love roses? Prepare beds where they will receive full sun for themajority of the day and add compost and organic fertiliser.Planting can be done right through winter, just remember to raisethe garden beds so the plants root ball is higher then the originalsoil levels. This will help with the soil temperature and preventthem from getting wet feet.Remember those solutions for eradicating and preventing mud!Happy Gardening, Shannon28Support your local community www.elocal.co.nz


The Police– Looking afterour CommunityA HealthierWay of Lifeby Community ConstableNoel SurreyIn about 1970 the New Zealand Police became more mobile viathe introduction of Incident Patrol cars manned by 2 constables.Prior to that a shift driver (not a constable) would pick up a beatconstable and transport him to any incident that was reported. Allpatrolling was done on foot and enquiries were made on bicycles.When I came to Pukekohe in 1978 there were two police carshere and night shift was officially an Incident Patrol with twomembers (one from Papakura) but between 7am and 11pm thepatrols were officially for enquiries because there was only oneconstable on each shift. There were usually 2 constables on patrolfrom 3pm till 11pm but the extra one was from the spare shift orrelieving roster. There were 15 police officers, about seven trafficofficers, a receptionist and a typist covering Franklin County andthe Pukekohe, Waiuku and Tuakau Boroughs. So, 24 people doingpolice work for a population of about 25 - 30,000. I am guessing atthat number but I know that Pukekohe Borough had 9,000.Now each shift has five staff and the total number of policeemployees is about 80 for approximately 60,000 people in FranklinDistrict. Many other things have changed; such as who answersthe telephone when you ring the police. There used to be a redtelephone in the old station for 111 calls and if it was in use no oneelse could get through unless the Telecom operator interrupted thecall. There was no police computer in Franklin until the middle1980s. We had no communications apart from car radio and landline telephone. The list of equipment we have now but didn’t thenis long. Working conditions have changed for both better andworse. In 1978 there was cannabis but no methamphetamine.However, here are many things that have stayed the same inpolicing Franklin District. We still deal with the same sorts ofissues:• Burglaries, thefts and assaults.• Speeding cars, vehicle crashes, inconsiderate driving and badparking.• Court cases, family violence and neighbour disputes.• Looking for offenders and escaped prisoners.• Dealing with disorderly, drunken, drugged and mentally disturbedpeople.• Executing search warrants for drugs and stolen property.• Lost children, lost and found property.• Informing children and adults about safety and crime prevention.• Being seen just patrolling on foot and in vehicles.There is one more thing that remains the same; police and thepopulation at large depend on each other. Police are trained andequipped to attend and investigate all the things listed above but wecan’t achieve much alone. Every citizen can and must contributewhat they have to make our society a better, safer place to live in.Franklin has always been a great place to live and work. Let’s alldo our best to make it even better, whatever else might change inthe future.Direct any questions arising from this article to editorial@elocal.co.nz.by Cees HekelaarWinter Defence ……..Bacteria And Virus ProtectionIn the winter we are more susceptible to invasions of bacteria andviruses. The elderly and children can have a more severe reactionto the flu virus and these population groups may choose to protectthemselves with a flu vaccination.For other people there are great natural ways to protect and ‘winterprepare’ their bodies to withstand the winter threats by boostingthe immune system. Certainly important when new strains of flumanifest yearly.A very well known herb to help fight against bacteria and virusesis Echinacea Purpurea.This plant has properties that increase your levels of white bloodcells and interferon, which inhibits viruses to reproduce andthat activate your macrophages, antibodies that kill bacteria andparasites. It also inhibits the enzyme hyaluronidase, that pathogenicorganisms produce to penetrate tissues and cause infection.This plant extract or juice can be used throughout the winter inblocks of 8 weeks followed by a pause of 2 weeks. When an acutesituation is eminent a couple of days of high dosage may help.Everybody knows the use of olive oil, but did you know what theleaves of the olive tree can do for you?Olive leaves contain the active compound, oleuropein. This haspowerful anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. It alsocontains vauqueline. This has been seen to lower fevers associatedwith infections.Astragalus root is a general immune booster and can strengthenthe respiratory tract.Zinc is a mineral with over 5000 functions, mainly in ourimmune system and helps to restore damage to the mucusmembranes (loss of taste, smell).Propolis, a natural substance that bees make to protect their hivesfrom viruses, bacteria and fungi.Homeopathic remedies are another safe alternative:Flu strains from past years can be made into homeopathic remediesto assist the body’s immune response.Allium Cepa, Euphrasia, luffa, Sabadilla are homeopathic plantremedies for running noses.Eupatorium, Pulsatilla, Aconite are for colds and flu-like symptoms.And there is more homeopathy, but you need to visit yourhomeopath or specialist to determine which choice is the best foryou personally.Other important measures to keep your immune system strong:Eat regularly with sensible amounts of fruit and veggies. Take extravitamin C (1000 mg per day). Get enough sleep. Dress warmly toprevent temperature shocks.I hope this may lead you through a healthy, happy winter season.If you have anymore questions on this subject feel free to callme on 09 2387806 or see me at Way of Life Health Shop, 68Edinburgh Street, Pukekohe.29
