Pressure kept on young crims

• By Andrew King

A POLICE crackdown on the

top 10 youth offenders in northwest

suburbs recovered stolen

property in a raid on Friday.

A search warrant was issued to

look for stolen property at a

Bryndwr address from two

burglaries in Papanui and the

theft of a mountain bike from a

school.

A 13-year-old suspect has been

identified, and $3550 worth of

property recovered.

Inquiries into his involvement

are on-going, no charges have

been laid so far.

It is part of an operation,

code named Piper, that targets

the top 10 youth believed to

be responsible for burglaries,

thefts, vandalism and graffiti,

intimidation and other

offending.

All 10 have been spoken to

since the operation started in

September.

Acting Sergeant Nick Adcock

said the raid on Friday shows

the initiative is working and it is

making a few young criminals

think twice before they act.

“This is an excellent result as

we are continuing to identify

and deal with offences caused by

our local youth. With focus on

our most prolific youth offenders

we are preventing further

offending,” he said.

He said seven of the 10 top

offenders have been dealt with

for offending with various

degrees of seriousness.

He said he couldn’t comment

on the specifics but the offences

ranged from burglary, aggravated

robbery and trespasses.

“We currently have two in

youth custody, one has moved

to be with family in Wellington,

one has been removed from

the list as there has been no

offending for some time,” he

said.

Operation Piper is based from

the Papanui police station and is

aimed at giving opportunities to

break a cycle of crime.

It’s part of a wider focus

throughout northern and

eastern suburbs to reduce youth

crime and as part of the national

goal to reduce it 25 per cent by

June.

Basketballer

heads for

new heights

Former Burnside High School student Toby

Gillooly has secured a four-year basketball

scholarship at New Mexico Highlands University

in Las Vegas. The 18-year-old, who recently

finished his final year of secondary school,

has been a standout player for Burnside and

Canterbury age group teams in recent years.

Gillooly was also part of the Canterbury Rams

team that finished at the top of the round-robin in

last year’s National Basketball League. He leaves

for the United States next week and will compete

for New Mexico in the NCAA Rocky Mountain

Athletic Conference. He hopes to secure a

professional contract in the Australian Basketball

League following his four years at college.

Garden in danger of closing

• By Andrew King

A GARDEN that feeds and

entertains families in Bryndwr

could be a thing of the past if

they do not find a fresh crop of

volunteers.

The garden was the brainchild

of Bryndwr residents in 2010

and created in spring 2012 as a

way to get to know who is in the

community and grow healthy,

organic food.

But now they need “as many

volunteers” as they can get to

keep the garden, and all the

events that have been associated

with it.

Currently there is about

nine volunteers but some are

moving away and if they don’t

find more, it will not be able to

continue.

“Heaps of families from

around the community use this

garden and come to the events,

but without more help, we will

have to stop running them,” said

Bryndwr Community Garden

events co-ordinator Martin Rule.

For the past few years the

garden has hosted a Christmas

party where kids can go along

and get a present, have some

food and learn a bit about their

neighbourhood as well as a Halloween

party and family day –

all alcohol and smoke-free.

COMMUNITY HUB: (Left to right) – Dean Leigh, Denise Duncan, Jackie Todd holding baby Te-

Uru Tawhero, Martin Rule, Gabby Parker, Nae Nae Higgs and Dvontae (front) all pitch in at the

garden but more volunteers are needed to keep the project going.

Mr Rule said they do not want

to start charging for the events

as it would defeat the purpose of

a community garden.

“It is bigger than a garden,” he

said.

He said people know each

other better, the kids are safer

because everybody knows

each other and it provides a

valuable service to the community.

“Vegetables are so expensive

these days so if we can help out

families that don’t have a lot

then that is a good thing,” he

said.

If others want to start up

gardens in their own communities,

Mr Rule said they would be

happy to help out.

If you would like to help out

with the garden email bryndwr.

community.garden@gmail.com

In Brief

REPAIRS NEEDED

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board has requested city council

staff arrange for the Redwood

Plunket rooms, located in Redwood

Park, to be repaired for community

use. It recently funded a community

worker through the Belfast

Community Network who needs to

be based in the area in a building.

COMMUNITY SPACE

A building used as the St Albans

transitional community centre will

be relocated to MacFarlane Park

after the new St Albans facility is

built. It has been gifted from the

Lions International Foundation

to the Papanui-Innes Community

Board.

FUNDING GRANTED

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

has approved funding for five

north-west students to attend

competitions and camps overseas.

Daniel Chiplin was granted $400

towards participating in the Peewee

International Ice Hockey Friendship

Tournament in Minnesota

in March. Amy Weaver, Grace

Northern and Paige Bowman were

granted $350 each towards their

gymnastics development tour to

Texas, in February. Laura Duncan

was granted $500 towards a

Missing war

medals still

a mystery

• By Andrew King

Tuesday January 10 2017

WELL-KNOWN rugby league

identity Bill Whitehead’s war

medals are still missing in action.

Mr Whitehead, of Bishopdale,

approached Nor’West News about

12 months ago to try and locate his

Queen’s Service Medal and Defence

Service Medal.

But he is yet to hear anything

about them. He gave them to a

friend, but cannot remember who.

They had planned to combine the

medals together.

The friend noticed the medals

sitting on the top of Mr Whitehead’s

cabinet, and said they knew “a place

that could connect those together.”

“I can’t for the life of me remember

who it was,” Mr Whitehead said.

He said he wanted to hand them

on to his “heirs” and is asking

anyone who may know something

about the medals to get in contact.

War historian Alan Polaschek

said he does most of the work

on medals in Canterbury, but had

not seen Mr Whitehead’s medals.

His QSM was presented in 1987

and he was awarded his DSM for his

army service from 1950-1952.

If you can help Mr Whitehead

recover his medals, email andrew.

“LEAVE US alone, we have

been through enough.”

That is the message Bryndwr

residents want to send the Government

about selling off state

houses.

In November, minister

responsible for Housing New

Zealand Bill English said the

Government would look to

sell up to 2500 state houses in

Christchurch as part of its selloff

programme.

A petition has been started by

Housing New Zealand tenant

Gail Scott and other Bryndwr

residents Marney Ainsworth,

Paul Pink and Nae Nae Higgs to

try and block the sale.

A meeting discussing the

up-coming sale will be held at

St Aidan’s Anglican Church on

Wednesday at 7.30pm.

“We don’t want another landlord,”

Ms Scott said.

The houses are in Bryndwr,

Shirley and Riccarton.

She hoped people living in the

affected houses would speak up

and try to stop the sell-off.

“There is a fear of being

evicted if they speak up, but it

Coupland’s Bakeries managing director

Lance Coupland presented the keys to a

new Volkswagen Polo to Louisa Sinclair,

the winner of a Coupland’s competition.

While Mrs Sinclair, 34, described the win

as an “amazing Christmas present,” she will

be trading in the car valued at $25,000 to

support a trip to her homeland, Northern

Ireland, next April. Living in Dunedin for the

past seven years, Mrs Sinclair, her husband

and two daughters will travel to Bangor

for the first time since she moved to New

Zealand. Mrs Sinclair won the competition

through Coupland’s Bakeries at Andersons

Bay, South Dunedin. She said the bakery is

a regular stop for milk and thick sliced white

bread, while her favourite bakery item are

the citrus truffles.

Plea to stop state housing sell-off

is freedom of speech, they can’t

be kicked out for that,” Ms Scott

said.

Former Social Housing

Minister Paula Bennett said the

Government’s expectation in an

ownership transfer is that any

community housing provider

must show it can improve the

quality of services to tenants.

“As we have said of other

transfers, our bottom line is that

tenant rights will remain the

same and tenants will continue

to be housed for the duration of

their need,” she said.

She said any successful bidder

will enter a 25-year contract

with the Ministry of Social Development

to provide housing

places.

Housing New Zealand

owns 358 properties in the

Bryndwr area, including the

house that was once home to

former prime minister John Key.

The petition will run “as long

as necessary,” according to Ms

Scott.

been released to potential providers

and those interested will

be invited to a market sounding

Retired coroner gets new year honour

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

TWENTY-ONE YEARS of

investigating deaths has led to

retired coroner Richard McElrea

being recognised on the New

Year Honours List.

Mr McElrea, 72, of Fendalton,

who was instrumental in

establishing the Coroners’

Council in 1998, was awarded

the Companion of the Queen’s

Service Order.

He said it was a privilege to

work as a coroner, and he was

lucky enough to have worked in

both the old and the new coroner

system which was established in

2007.

Born in Dunedin, Mr McElrea

attended Otago Boys’ High

School before going on to gain

a Bachelor of Arts at Otago

University and a law degree at

Canterbury University.

He became a partner at law

firm Duncan Cotterill in 1970

before being appointed a coroner

for the Canterbury region in

1994.

“It wasn’t something I always

thought I would go into but it is

just an opportunity that arose

and I have had the privilege of

having two careers in the law,”

he said.

In 1998, Mr McElrea helped

Year Honours List for his work as a coroner and the work he

found and chaired the Coroners’

Council which, he said, was an

important part of the coroner

support system.

“We started having meetings .

. . we worked together to try and

bring about change which would

mean more resources for corners

and that all occurred,” he said.

After the establishment, the

council began liaising with the

Ministry of Justice and other

coroners from overseas, setting

up a best practice.

As well as his services as a

coroner, Mr McElrea was recognised

for his former role as chair

of the Antarctic Heritage Trust,

which is responsible for the care

of the original explorer bases in

the Ross Dependency region of

the Antarctica.

Before he became a lawyer, he

worked as a New Zealand Antarctic

volunteer in the 1970s.

He continued his interest by

interviewing survivors from

Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton’s

Trans-Antarctica expedition of

1914-1917 and co-authored a

book Polar Castaways.

In the mid-1980s as president

of the New Zealand Antarctic

Society, he became involved in

the formation of the Antarctic

Heritage Trust which ensures

expedition bases and thousands

of artefacts are preserved.

“It is as if I have been there

yesterday, such are the sharpness

of the images one experiences

down there,” he said.

He was one of four residents

from the north-west of the city to

be named on the honours list.

John Harrington, of Burnside,

was recognised for services to

youth, while Charles Shadbolt, of

Mairehau, was honoured for his

work in the New Zealand Fishing

Industry and philanthropy.

Alison Wilkie, of Merivale,

was honoured for services to

health and education. Mrs

Wilkie set up the Canterbury

Former Burnside basketball

guard makes jump to US

• By Gordon Findlater

TOBY GILLOOLY is the latest

Canterbury basketballer to

secure a United States college

scholarship after a standout

secondary school spell with

Burnside High School.

In 2016, Gillooly averaged 14

points, nine rebounds and three

assists per game, while shooting

57 per cent from the field for

his school. The 18-year-old will

head to New Mexico Highlands

University next week to begin a

four-year scholarship.

Gillooly made the decision to

join the university after visiting

New Mexico late last year.

“The coach was it for me, he

seemed like a really enthusiastic

and smart coach. I really like

where the basketball programme

is heading and I feel like I’ll be

able to fit in well straight away,”

said Gillooly.

The 193cm guard is the second

Christchurch basketballer in a

week to announce he has a college

scholarship.

Last week, Christchurch Boys’

High School’s Quinn Clinton

revealed he will play for the University

of New Mexico.

Clinton was the standout

player in last year’s local secondary

school competition, with

many viewing Gillooly as the

competition’s second most valuable

player.

RISING HIGH: Toby Gillooly (left) played for Canterbury in the

under-19 national basketball championships last year.

Only 90 minutes on the road

will separate the two, with

Gillooly based in Las Vegas,

New Mexico, and Clinton in

Albuquerque, New Mexico.

“We’re really good mates off

the court. We will actually play

each other in pre-season and

it will be really cool having

(Clinton) just down the road,”

Gillooly said.

He has been part of the Mainland

Eagles Academy for the

past two years and played for the

Canterbury Rams under coach

Mark Dickel in 2016.

“(Gillooly) has earned this opportunity.

His new coach Craig

Snow is getting a player who can

play right away. Toby is a winner,”

said Dickel.

New Mexico Highlands University

competes in the NCAA

Rocky Mountain Athletic

Conference. Last season, they

finished with a 12-8 record in the

conference and a 14-14 record

overall.

A number of current Australian

National Basketball League

players have competed in the

Rocky Mountain Athletic

Conference, including Mark

Worthington, David Barlow,

Jesse Wagstaff, Mitch McCarron

and Nicholas Kay.

Gillooly leaves for New Mexico

on Sunday.

DYLAN HEAP will go into

next week’s Christchurch

International Tennis Federation

tournament on a high.

The 16-year-old has done the

double, capturing his second

straight age group national

tennis title in a marathon final at

Wilding Park last week.

Heap, who plays his club

tennis for Waimairi, was made

to go the distance in the 16 and

under New Zealand Junior

Championships final, which

lasted two and a half hours on

Friday.

Heap took the first set against

Hutt Valley’s George Stoupe in

comfortable fashion 6-2. The

second set was a different story

with Stoupe fighting back to take

it 6-4.

The third and final set went

the distance with a tie-breaker

required after the scores were

locked at six a piece. Not even

the tie-breaker could be decided

easily as Heap won it narrowly

9-7 to complete a 6-2, 4-6, 7-6 (7)

victory.

Later in the tournament, Heap

teamed up with his Junior Davis

Cup teammate Macsen Sisam to

also win the doubles title with

a 6-3, 6-4 win over William

Brownlie and Stoupe.

Heap has perfect build up

to Chch ITF tournament

BACK TO BACK: Dylan Heap

has won the under-16 national

tennis championships ahead

of next week’s Christchurch

ITF tournament. ​

Heap will now turn his

attention to gaining valuable

junior world ranking points at

Zealand over the next month.

Crummer looking

Annie Crummer found fame

with hits such as Language and

See What Love Can Do. She

spoke to Tom Doudney about

working on new material and

seeing dyslexia as a blessing,

ahead of her performance with

Debbie Harwood, Margaret

Urlich and Sharon O’Neill

at Lincoln’s Selwyn Sounds

concert in March

IT HAS been a long time

since we’ve heard anything

new from Annie Crummer

but the singer is hopeful

her fans won’t have to wait

too much longer.

Crummer hasn’t released

a full album of original material

since 1996’s Seventh

Wave. Since then fans have

had to make do with a best

of collection in 2002 and

three songs released in 2010

as singles only.

While she is reluctant to

talk about release dates, she

has been working on songs

for an album which has

a working title of Project

Annie C.

“I have got a bunch of

songs that I am dying to get

out of the demo situation

and get into the studio and

smash that stuff out, I’m

the only one stopping me,”

she said.

“I’ve got a lot more to say

musically, I will just have to

get over myself and get on

with it.”

Crummer said that while

she was known more as a

singer than a songwriter,

she had become more

confident dabbling in song

writing.

“Melodies come really

good to me but the way I

write lyrics is quite odd because

I am fully dyslexic so

the way I explain things, I

don’t think it’s the same as

a non-dyslexic song writer.”

Crummer only discovered

she was dyslexic well

into her adult years but the

revelation came as a big

relief.

“When I look back I

think: ‘Oh, I have been

blessed with dyslexia, that’s

all.’ I just learn things differently,”

she said.

“I forgave myself for

feeling so dumb all these

years because I left school

really early and now when I

look back at all the subjects

I took it had nothing to do

with anything technical, it

all had to do with creative

stuff.”

Those subjects included classes

on art, Maori culture and,

perhaps surprisingly, typing –

because she could just copy the

patterns without thinking about

the words.

That ability to recognise

patterns helped her land a leading

role in the Australian version of

Ben Elton’s hit musical-theatre

production We Will Rock You,

based on the songs of British rock

band Queen, in 2003. To get the

part of Killer Queen, Crummer

had to audition in front of

Queen guitarist Brian May and

drummer Roger Taylor.

“I had to learn the English

phonetically and that is actually

how I learn music too, I listen

to where heart is needed and

where anger is needed and all the

emotions, I just emulate those

inflections without really knowing

what I am talking about, but I

have just fooled everyone,” she

said.

“I can’t believe I got that role, if

only they knew how I did it. But

it did catch up on me a couple of

times on stage where I’d fumble

over a word because I didn’t fully

understand it and I had to dig my

way out of it, live.”

She said that while the way

dyslexic people figured things out

BEST OF FRIENDS: From left, Margaret Urlich, Debbie Harwood and Annie Crummer will

might be different, the outcome

could be incredible.

Crummer, who lives in

Auckland, said she loved that

performing enabled her to travel.

She always looked forward to

playing with Harwood, Urlich

and O’Neill, sometimes joined

by Shona Laing, with the singers

typically doing about three or

four shows together a year.

She was looking forward to

reuniting with them for Selwyn

Sounds.

“I’m a huge fan of theirs and we

have the utmost respect for each

other so it’s a joy all round, a real

buzz.”

The concert will also feature

Kiwi rock heavyweights Mi-Sex,

Dragon, The Jordan Luck Band

and Jason Kerrison.

When she was not performing

with Harwood and co or going

solo, she often joined her father’s

band, Will Crummer and the

Rarotongans, playing songs

which mostly sung in Cook

Island Maori. Crummer took a

more low key role in the band,

playing the pahu and putting in

some occasional backing vocals.

She didn’t mind stepping back

from the spotlight and credited

her father with setting her on the

path to stardom.

“He gave me the gift of music,”

she said.

“I do count my blessings, that’s

a daily ritual for me, the fact that

I can do music and have never

had a job.”

•Selwyn Sounds will be held

on March 4, from 11.30am-

8.30pm. Tickets can be

purchased via Ticketek and

buyers will be able to prepurchase

a return bus ride

between pick-up points in

Christchurch or Rolleston

and Lincoln Domain.

Pine bark may support

brain function

Recent news from Auckland University

of Technology has people excited about a

pine bark extract called Enzogenol. AUT

reported that patients suffering memory

loss and other brain problems after a

traumatic brain injury recovered better

when taking Enzogenol compared to a

control group.

Enzogenol is not a new product, though.

In fact, it was developed at Canterbury

University and has been in our health

food shops for over 10 years. According to

ENZO Nutraceuticals, the company that

produces the product, a number of research

studies have shown how Enzogenol can

help improve brain function and support

healthy blood circulation.

The amazing thing is, it is made from

the bark of New Zealand Pinus Radiata

with an extraction method that uses only

purified water. Apparently, the pine bark

is full of healthy plant compounds that

are naturally part of our diet when we eat

fruits and vegetables. Yet, the pine bark is

loaded with these natural antioxidant and

anti-inflammatory compounds and makes

a great starting material for this health

product. Keen on a chewing a bit of pine

bark?

All the benefits of

double glazing

Amazing Glazing has been going from

strength to strength since it’s inception in

2004. Max Dorfliger who established the

business that offers specially run mouldings

of Peninsula macrocarpa to secure a second

pane of 4mm glass onto existing wooden

frames, has recently brought Gunter Dehne

into the business. Gunter, a Cabinetmaker

by trade and a technology teacher for many

years, was keen to be back on the tools and

excited to be adding such value to people’s

lives. Existing timber joinery is preserved

while a home is effectively double ‐glazed.

All the benefits of double ‐glazing like

insulation, reduced heating cost and

noise reduction are obtained, without the

prohibitive cost of complete replacement.

The insulation of Amazing Glazing is

better than many standard double glazing

solutions due to the increased air space

between the panes.

The dryer conditions during the summer

months make this the best time to install

Amazing Glazing.

Frames can be oiled for a natural wood

finish, or painted in the colour of your

choice, to blend in with the existing look.

The importance of

good blood

pressure!

Aspire

Canterbury

Blood Pressure is an indicator of

cardiovascular as well as overall health.

Healthy blood flow is vital for a healthy

body as the blood plasma transports

nutrients, hormones, metabolic waste,

oxygen and CO2 throughout the body. An

area in the brain keeps check on blood flow

to ensure health of all cells and the organs

they make up. If blood flow is reduced the

brain will try to normalise blood flow by

adjusting the heart strength, frequency

(Pulse Rate) as well as the width of blood

vessels all via the nervous system. Over

a period of time the blood pressure may

keep increasing due to the deterioration

of blood flow. A higher B/P is not ideal

and is considered a major risk factor for

strokes, aneurysm, organ failure and heart

failure. Even moderate elevation of B/P is

considered a major reason for shorter life

expectancy. If we can maintain our B/P in

the normal range our overall health will be

improved. Systolic B/P (The upper figure)

is when the heart contracts and pushes

blood around the body. Ideally at rest this

should be between 100 to 120. The diastolic

B/P (The lower figure) is the pressure in the

arteries between beats and ideally at rest

this should be between 60 to 70.

It has been found in around 90% of

cases high blood pressure is caused by

an increase in the resistance to blood

flow in the blood vessels. It is believed

inflammation and stiffness of the blood

vessels are major reasons for this increased

resistance. Checking our blood pressure on

a regular basis allows us to adjust our diet

and lifestyle and see the benefits in our B/P

readings.

Blood Pressure monitors and further

information on how to improve your

overall health and B/P naturally is

available from the natural health advisers

at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy,

city who would like to

be spoiled. A lady that

is single, maybe lonely,

maybe on your own, and

would like a partner to

do things with. A lady

who is spontaneous, well

presented, available, and

enjoys the nice things

of life. Perhaps shy and

has never replied to a

newspaper ad before..
