Anti fast-food campaign

calls for Brownlee’s support

District plan

change

may be

an option

• By Tom Doudney

A CAMPAIGN to stop fast

food outlets proliferating

around schools and low income

areas may depend on support

from Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister Gerry

Brownlee.

City council

staff briefed

the Hagley-

Ferrymead

Community

Board last

week ahead of

a deputation by

Linwood community members

and Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson

to the city council on August 11.

The group, which includes

schools and doctors, want the

city council to take action on the

issue.

A petition supporting the call,

organised by Linwood resident

Tracie Charnock, has received

more than 600 signatures.

Possible methods of tackling

the matter include a bylaw, district

plan change or national policy

statement by the Government.

City council solicitor Vivienne

Wilson advised that creating

a bylaw could be difficult and

there were many questions that

would have to be resolved, including

how fast food stores and

low socio-economic areas would

be defined.

“My job is try and keep the

Wilson said.

challenged.”

City council team leader

policy Claire Bryant advised

that the district plan had been

finalised and, due to earthquake

recovery legislation, it would

now be difficult to make changes

before 2021 unless Mr Brownlee

ordered them.

Community board

chairwoman Sara Templeton

said all options sounded

“difficult and time consuming,

which is a real concern” but

the quickest way to get a result

would probably be for the city

council to ask Mr Brownlee to

make the district plan changes.

However, she believed Mr

Brownlee might be unwilling

to do so, given a letter of

expectations he had written

indicating obstacles to

development in the district plan

should be removed.

City councillor Yani Johanson

said he would be in favour of

asking Mr Brownlee to make

changes.

“I can’t see any reasons why

[a plan change] couldn’t happen

quite quickly,” Cr Johanson said.

“We have one of the most

permissive plans in the country

which allows anything to go

anywhere.”

Mr Brownlee did not respond

to a request for comment.

East resigns from

alcohol working party

• By Shelley Robinson

CITY COUNCILLOR David

East has resigned from a

working party negotiating with

opponents to a controversial

alcohol policy.

He did so in a bid to prevent

the 19 appellants to the city

council’s provisional local alcohol

policy using it as grounds for

judicial review, after it emerged

he had made a submission

opposing several points of the

policy in 2013.

It was made before he was

elected.

In October, the LAP will come

under scrutiny at an Alcohol

Regulatory and Licensing Authority

hearing.

The contentious LAP would

force most bars to close at 1am,

except those in a small central

city zone. It would also restrict

off-licence hours from 9am to

9pm.

The working party of five city

councillors, including Cr East,

was formed to negotiate with

the appellants before the hearing.

Cr East who represents the

Burwood-Pegasus ward made a

submission on the policy in 2013

when it was being drafted and

asked the city council whether

it was concerned it could be

used by the appellants due to a

perceived conflict of interest or

predetermination.

City council’s head of strategic

policy Helen Beaumont said

it was satisfied the submission

did not raise “any particular

concerns”.

“There is nothing to suggest

that Cr East has not maintained

an open mind in being a part

of the council’s working party,”

she said.

Cr East said he resigned from

the working party on Monday

“in part” because of inquiries by

The Star newspaper.

He said he had forgotten he

had made a submission but as a

precautionary measure he chose

to resign.

“It is a course of action I

would have taken in any situation.

If there was a potential

conflict it is better to be out of it

and not have a reason for judicial

review or whatever,” he said.

In his 2013 submission he said

licences should be issued on

the merit of the application and

closing times “at the discretion”

of the licensing authority.

He wrote that bars that

close at 1am would impact the

financial viability of some and

that the LAP was restrictive on

trade and did not address the

“real issues of pre-loading” with

alcohol.

In Brief

NEIGHBOURHOOD WEEK

Applications are now open

for a small subsidy from the

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board for activities celebrating

neighbourhood week. The closing

date for applications is August 19

at 5pm. For more information, go

to www.ccc.govt.nz

FUNDING APPROVED

The Shirley-Papanui Community

Board has granted $11,000 from

its discretionary response fund

for three projects. It approved

$2000 to Te Ora Hou Otautahi

Inc for Te Pihi Ora Hou after

school mentoring programme,

$4000 for neighbourhood week,

and $5000 for Canterbury Cook

Island Sports to host more events.

BLOOD DONATIONS

A mobile blood service will be

up and running in New Brighton

from Wednesday next week.

ENSOR RD WORKS

Ensors Rd near the intersection

with Fifield Tce has been reduced

to one lane and will remain so

for about five weeks. Temporary

traffic lights are in place but

expect significant delays during

peak times.

NO STOPPING APPROVED

The Shirley-Papanui Community

Board has approved no stopping

lines on five streets. Sail, Wiremu,

Dalriada Sts and St James Ave,

Brenton Close and Langdons Rd

all had no stopping restrictions

approved at last Wednesday’s

meeting. Wiremu St also had

P120 parking restrictions

proposed for it but the board

decided parking on the street

was not bad enough to warrant

restrictions.

COMMUNITY CENTRE

Plans for the new St Albans

Community Centre will come

back to the Shirley-Papanui

Community Board for sign off

before heading into the detailed

design process. Board chairman

Mike Davidson was pleased with

the momentum of the project

Sarah beats cancer again;

now she’s helping others

• By Bridget Rutherford

SARAH O’KEEFE is used to

facing challenges.

The 32-year-old was diagnosed

with hodgkin’s lymphoma, a

type of cancer, about 10 years ago

and since then has fought off the

disease three times.

Now she faces a different challenge

– going on a road trip with

her mother, Lynne, to the West

Coast on scooters to raise money

for the Cancer Society of New

Zealand.

The pair will be among 250

people to ride the 250km from

Christchurch to Hokitika on

scooters as part of the Tranz Alpine

Scooter Safari on September

10 – and it will be a new experience

for both of them.

“Mum’s never ridden one, and

I only have in Rarotonga,” Sarah

said.

With the help of Aked Mobile

Hose and Fittings, where Sarah’s

partner Matt works, they were

able to buy new scooters, and race

jackets.

Sarah was diagnosed with

hodgkin’s, which originates from

a specific type of white blood

cells, just months after her 21st

birthday. She underwent chemotherapy,

and got the all clear

about 10 months later. But the

following year it was back. After

radiation treatment, Sarah was

given the all clear for a second

time.

But 10 years later, in November,

she began to have stomach pains.

The doctor initially believed it

was gallstones, but it turned

out she had tumours in her

stomach.

“If its going to come back it

generally comes back within a

couple of years, so it’s kind of

unusual its come back 10 years

later.”

Second tunnel plan mooted

• By Tom Doudney

A SECOND

ashion

road tunnel between

Christchurch and Lyttelton will

be needed in about 20 years due

to growth in freight transport,

the port boss says.

Lyttelton Port Company chief

executive Peter Davie said a

“guestimate” from an engineer

had put the cost of a second tunnel

in the region of $500 million,

and funding it would probably

fall to road control authorities.

to say, ‘if we have got this volume

of cargo in 20 years time, how

are we going to handle it’?”

Mr Davie said the logical thing

would be for one tunnel to serve

port traffic, possibly bypassing

Norwich Quay in Lyttelton and

connecting directly to the port.

Member clubs unanimously

accepted the recommendation

of the board to wind up the operations

of the organisation at a

special general meeting in June.

Chairman Rob Smith said

while it’s a regrettable and difficult

decision to make, this was

something that had been looming

for some time.

“This reflects the significant

challenges associated with running

a viable sporting organisation

in the current environment,”

he said.

Mr Smith said there was a

Jim Harland said the tunnel

still had significant capacity to

accommodate further growth in

would be needed. Increasing

use of rail to the port would also

help.

“The second tunnel has been

Study, and was suggested

as a long term option, subject to

a comprehensive business case

analysis at the appropriate time,”

Mr Harland said.

Westminster Sports winds up

number of factors that contributed

to the idea not working.

He said the financial position

of the organisation was such that

operation beyond a two to three

month time frame was not viable

and member clubs were not engaged

to the degree necessary to

ensure or create a viable business

model.

Sport Canterbury chief executive

Julyan Falloon said while

it was a concern for those clubs

involved, plenty survive without

TREES TO BE REMOVED

The Burwood-Pegasus has

approved the removal of 29 street

and park trees to allow the first

stage of the Avon Temporary

Stopbanks reconstruction

works. The board expressed a

wish that the suggested trees

be removed only if absolutely

necessary noting that this was

the first stage of the project. It

has asked city council parks

staff to provide it with a plan to

replace the trees where possible.

They will advise the board if

the replacement trees would be

exotic, native or a combination.

Board member David East

wished his vote against the

removal recorded.

A man was taken to

Christchurch Hospital in a

Cherry blossoms mark quake deaths

• By Annabelle Dick

TWENTY EIGHT young

Japanese language students

lost their lives when the CTV

building collapsed during the

February 22, 2011, quake.

Now eight cherry blossom

trees will be planted in the

Botanic Gardens at a ceremony

tomorrow (August 10) at

2.30pm to honour their memory.

The trees, donated by the

city of Ishinomaki, Japan, will

be planted at the World Peace

Bell garden to honour victims

of New Zealand and Japan’s

earthquakes.

Just weeks after the February

quake, Japan was struck by

a devastating magnitude 9

earthquake and tsunami which

killed about 16,000 people. The

city of Ishinomaki lost more

than 3000 people.

New Zealand World Peace

Bell member David Bolam-

Smith said the commemoration

project came about when he

met Japanese families and

representatives at the five-year

anniversary in February.

Zen Buddhist priest Taigen

Goto was there on behalf of

one of the families when Mr

Bolam-Smith invited him to

ring the peace bell to pray for

the Japanese students lost in the

CTV building.

Mr Bolam-Smith said he was

telling Mr Goto about his plans

to plant cherry trees from the

bell to the river when he offered

some help.

“He pulled out his wallet

and gave me $500 dollars on

the spot and said, ‘please plant

cherry trees here to remember

the people who died in the

Christchurch earthquake

and the tsunami and

quakes in Japan’,” Mr Bolam-

Smith said.

After planting trees in

Christchurch, Mr Bolam-Smith

will travel to Mr Goto’s home

city of Ishinomaki to return

the favour by planting cherry

blossoms.

“We’re building a cherry

blossom bridge between the two

countries,” he said.

Ishinomaki is home to a

training facility being built for

the Rugby World Cup in 2019.

Mr Bolam-Smith will visit the

city in September to plant the

trees outside the stadium in the

presence of Japan Rugby Football

Union representatives and the

city mayor.

He will travel to Japan on

September 1.

He is also urging residents to

attend the public tree-planting

ceremony at the Botanic Gardens’

World Peace Bell.

A BLOSSOMING CONNECTION: David Bolam-Smith will plant cherry blossom trees in both

Christchurch and Ishinomaki, Japan, to honour the lives of earthquake victims who perished in

the CTV building.

Familiar face at the theatre

Pam Lutton first offered to help out with ushering a

show at the Isaac Theatre Royal 35 years ago. Georgia

and celebrities including Dame

Kiri Te Kanawa.

And times have changed since

Mrs Lutton began working at the

Isaac Theatre Royal in 1981.

“Once upon a time it was only

a part-time job. You would have

shows probably once every two

months. Now we have got something

going nearly all the time,”

she said.

Mrs Lutton has spent so much

time at the theatre that one night

about 25 years ago she, along

with several others, camped out

at the theatre to ghost watch.

“My friend Julie McKenzie says

(the theatre) is haunted but I have

never seen the ghosts.”

Mrs Lutton grew up in Cronadun

on the West Coast before

attending St Mary’s School in

Hokitika.

She comes from a sporting

family and one of her daughters

has represented New Zealand at

the Commonwealth Games.

Her daughter Tania came

fourth in shot put at the 1998

Commonwealth Games in Kuala

Lumpur.

Her son Deane works as a professional

rugby coach in Japan,

while another daughter Nina had

a flair for swimming, but gave

up the sport to pursue tertiary

studies.

She is also very proud of her

nephew, Tom Walsh, who will

compete at the Rio Olympics on

August 19.

Mrs Lutton has a passion for

sports herself, having raced

in marathons, including the

Christchurch Marathon.

But in spite of her interest in

sports, Mrs Lutton loved the performing

arts from a young age.

“The nuns used to have us

ballroom dancing in the hall, We

did the dancing but weren’t allowed

to do anything too crude

or sexy.”

She described working

at the theatre as a “luxury

job” and missed it when the

theatre closed after the earthquakes.

William Stedman

Athlete’s first paralympics

Christchurch’s William

Stedman, 16, will debut

at the Rio de Janeiro

Paralympics in September.

He spoke to reporter Caitlin

Miles about how he hasn’t

let cerebral palsy stop him

from competing and what

inspired him to become a

paralympic athlete

Congratulations on getting a

grant from Inspire Foundation.

Thank you. Yeah, it’s really

cool, it’ll help me out a lot to get

things I need before heading to

Rio. I’m really thankful that they

gave me the money. They’re a

great foundation.

How much money did

you receive? What will it go

towards?

I got $1000, so that will go

towards paying for orthotics

and shoes and that kind of stuff.

The New Zealand Paralympics

covers our entry costs and stuff,

which is a big relief because it’s

not cheap. The money I got from

the foundation can be focused on

getting me the things I need for

it, not just pay to compete.

Congratulations, too, on

heading to Rio – are you

excited?

I fly out tomorrow so I’m pretty

excited. I’ve been doing a lot

of training and stuff so it’s still

pretty surreal. The other people

I’ve met in the paralympic team

are really great so it’s going to be

really cool.

How long have you been

training for?

I kind of never stop training. It

gets ramped up and more intense

closer to the time, but I’m always

training. When I went to the

world champs in Doha, I didn’t

know I was going until about two

weeks before. I didn’t think I had

got in so, when I found out I had,

there was a bit more pressure to

train harder. I had been training

constantly anyway, but that

uncertainty was annoying. It was

such a big event and competition

to be a part of so the idea of

missing out was hard, so it was

even better when I found out I

training for events and competitions, such as the paralympics.

had got in.

How did you fund that? It

must have been hard to get

all the money and everything

together in a short amount of

time?

Well my parents were really

good about it. They helped

me out big time with getting

everything together in not much

time. I guess it was such a big

thing for me and a really great

opportunity they didn’t want me

to miss out either.

Is this your first year going to

the paralympics?

Yeah, it is. It’s really exciting to

be going over.

What classifies you as a

paralympian?

I have cerebral palsy so the left

side of my body is a bit slower

and doesn’t react as quickly. I

was classed as T28, which was bit

too hard for me to compete in. I

am now classed at T36 and that

made a big change to how I can

compete. It’s much easier for

me and I compete better and

a little easier, which gives me

a good chance to compete

professionally and go to worlds

and stuff.

Why did you decide to

become an athlete?

I have always been pretty

active. I enjoy sport. It wasn’t

until I saw the 2012 London

Paralympics and I thought, ‘I can

do that, why can’t I do that?’ So

I decided to get serious about it

and see what I can do.

So you’ve been competing for

four years?

No, not at first. I wanted to

get into running and see what it

was like. I joined the Port Hills

Athletics Club and I started

long distance running with the

club. It wasn’t until 2014 when

I started training properly for

competitions.

What events do you compete

in?

I do the 400m, 800m running

events and the long jump.

How often do you train and

what’s involved?

I train roughly seven times a

week. That’s about 10-11 hours.

It might not sound like much

but it’s pretty high intensity stuff.

I do a lot of different exercises

over the week. I’ll do short

distance running, long distance,

endurance stuff, running up

and down stairs and hills, gym

sessions and all of that kind of

stuff. I usually get two days off

a week. Sometimes I’ll train on

Sundays, though.

How does your body cope

with that? Do your muscles

struggle?

No, my muscles handle it

pretty well, but my left side is

just slower and I have less muscle

control over it so it doesn’t move

as well. I started off running long

distances and then I switched

to shorter distances. I think it’s

because my body can handle

shorter distances better. I’m more

NEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf 1 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m.

of a middle distance runner now.

As I get older, I might go back to

doing longer distances.

How do you balance school

and training? Is it your first

year of exams?

Yeah, I’m doing NCEA level 1

this year, so there is a bit going

on. My school is really supportive

of my sport so that’s a big help.

They understand there is a lot

going on so I balance it. I’ve got

to stay really motivated to be able

to do both.

Do you ever worry about

cerebral palsy stopping you

from running and competing?

I never really think about it

to be honest. I make sure I look

after myself. It’s important to me

to compete and be a good athlete,

but I also know to look after

myself. I’m not too worried about

having to stop. Not at this stage

anyway. I have had a couple of

injuries but nothing too serious.

I had a bone stress injury in my

foot when I competed, which

was painful, but nothing that has

made me think about stopping.

Has anyone ever told you

that you shouldn’t be an athlete

because of cerebral palsy?

No. I’m really lucky. I’ve had so

much support from my parents

and my friends and my school.

My coach, George Edwards, is

really great, too. I also think

paralympics are getting more

support and recognition, which

is really cool. It’s not so hidden

anymore. There is a lot more

support for us athletes, which I

think is a really great thing to see.

Do you see yourself as a role

model for other people with

disabilities?

I wouldn’t call myself a role

model. Not at the moment

anyway. I’d like to be a role model

in the future, though. I think it’s

just really cool that paralympics

is becoming a bigger event and

getting more people to celebrate

us. It gets more coverage in the

media, more people recognise us

as athletes that have disabilities

and support us. Not just here, but

around the world, which is really

cool. It’s a big step forward.

Overpasses planned for Brougham St

• By Tom Doudney

REPLACING Brougham St

intersections with overpasses

would solve a lot of traffic

problems, Lyttelton Port

Company chief executive Peter

Davie says.

Overpasses are being considered

as part of a programme

business case for

State Highway 76,

which includes

Brougham St,

led by New Zealand

Transport

Agency.

Key stakeholders

including the port company,

the city council and KiwiRail are

also involved.

Mr Davie said the port company

had some concerns about

congestion on Brougham St – a

major transport route to and

from the port.

JAM PACKED: Traffic congestion on Brougham St could be

eased by putting in overpasses. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

“There is twice the traffic

ACHIEVERS

trying to get across Brougham

St as there is down it. If you

think about why you have got

ACHIEVERS

congestion, you have actually got

a whole lot of crossings where

trucks and cars are stopping the

whole way down,” he said.

“It seems pretty obvious that

you would need to try and do

away with that congestion by

[roads] going over or under

each other.”

NZTA director southern

region Jim Harland said overpasses

would reduce the number

of conflicting movements at

intersections but the pros and

cons of this option compared to

others still needed to be established.

“The cost has not yet been

determined, but would be

significant given the cost of

adjacent land along Brougham

St,” Mr Harland said.

Mr Davie said there were

perhaps three or four major

intersections on Brougham St

and putting overpasses on two

of them would go a long way to

fixing the problem.

“Your only other option really

is to three-lane Brougham St

which means you take all the

parking out,” he said.

Average daily traffic volumes

on Brougham St have risen from

35,019 movements a day in 2006

to 38,525 in 2015.

Mr Davie said that with just

four per cent of the traffic volume

being comprised of vehicles

travelling to or from the port, its

contribution to congestion was

low.

The volume of goods going to

and from the port was expected

to increase steadily in the years

ahead due to growth in Canterbury’s

exports and imports.

However, some of that increase

could be accommodated by

moving goods by rail.

overpasses a good idea on

Shirley Boys’ to face top side in semis

• By Gordon Findlater

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School

will face an in-form Christ’s

College in this weekend’s UC

Championship semi-finals.

Shirley Boys’ finished the

round-robin on Saturday with a

13-19 loss to Christchurch Boys’

High School. It could have been

a different story though, after the

scores were tied at seven a piece

at half-time.

Trailing 13-14 with less than

10min remaining, first-five Taine

Jacobs-Lawson had a chance to

win the game for Shirley Boys’

with a penalty attempt. His

shot at goal missed, CBHS then

wrapped up the game with a try

in the final minute.

The result means they go into

the semis as the fourth qualifier

behind Christ’s, CBHS and

Nelson College.

They will play Christ’s College

in this Saturday’s semi-final.

SPORTS

CLOSE: Shirley came agonizingly close to making it two

consecutive wins over CBHS. A try in the final minute gave

the hosts a 19-13 victory.

The two sides played recently, the July 23 meeting 33-10.

with Christ’s College winning Shirley Boys’ rugby manager

John Fox knows how tough getting

a result against the competition’s

top side will be.

“Playing them on upper is

always a tough task, we will go

into the game with nothing to

lose. We’ve achieved our goal

of making the top four so anything

from here is a bonus,” said

Fox.

Christ’s College wrapped up

top spot in emphatic fashion,

demolishing St Andrew’s 67-19.

The win means that they will

now host their first ever UC

“It will be huge atmosphere

MerrIn BelIeveS that effective

school-home partnerships can enhance

children’s learning. These partnerships are

also welcome within the school to give

students an extra boost through various

programmes which would not be available

examples of these programmes are

our group of Parent reading tutors

whom work alongside 2 students three

times a week and the Perceptual Motor

Programme which helps enhance

our tāmariki’s movement skills and

understanding of language.

Including and encouraging parents to

be active participants within learning

at Merrin.

These opportunities are provided

A game changer in the fight

against Parkinson’s Disease

If you have Parkinson’s disease, you cannot

afford to underestimate the benefits of

exercise. Being sedentary is one of the fastest

ways to see your symptoms get worse. To be

the best you can be, consider a revolutionary

Parkinson’s programme, PD Warrior, run by

Muscle People Physiotherapy.

“Exercise needs to be a front line defence

for people with Parkinson’s disease. PD

Warrior aims to re-wire the brain to allow

everyday movements and activities to be

performed with greater ease. Just like your

muscles benefit from cross- training, your

brain also benefits from being challenged and

surprised.” Melissa McConaghy, co-founder

of PD Warrior and Specialist Neurological

Physiotherapist.

Purposeful movement can combat the loss

of motor control seen in Parkinson’s disease.

PD Warrior combines a high effort, intensive

work-out with a challenging combination

of movements and mental strategy. It is

designed for people with early stage or mild

Parkinson’s disease with the aim of slowing

down the progress of the disease.

“PD Warrior is loads of fun and can get

very loud with plenty of variety to keep

people engaged. you get to connect with

like-minded people who want to fight their

symptoms,” says Laurie Moore, Director of

Muscle People Physiotherapy.

Neil, from Rangiora, has been attending

the PD Warrior programme and says; “The

exaggerated movement keeps the body

moving rather than seizing up”. Neil keeps

up the exercises at home during the week and

says “that’s how you get the most benefit out

of it.” He has been playing more golf and is

able to work a couple of days a week.

Muscle People has helped clients achieve

some significant milestones through PD

Warrior. Those who come to the PD Warrior

circuit style programme at the city clinic each

week report feeling more confident in their

movements and are able to move more freely

and get back into life.

The first step in the PD Warrior

programme is an assessment at Muscle

People Physiotherapy. for more information

or to book your assessment telephone the

friendly team at Muscle People on

360 3606.”

PD Warrior not only re-trains your

brain, it also helps you to get -

• Your life back – get back to doing

the things you love.

• Stronger and healthier, so you feel

better about yourself.

• More comfortable doing several

things at one time.

• Better balance... prevent

dangerous accidents and falls.

• Able to do all the little things that

you have recently abandoned.

Parkinson’s -

• Parkinson’s is a progressive

neurodegenerative condition

which effects the part of the brain

responsible for initiating and coordinating

movement.

• Approximately 1 in 500 people

have the condition.

• Twenty percent of people affected

by Parkinson’s are of working age

(15-64 years).

PD Warrior -

• Uses a unique combination of

physical and cognitive activities to

drive the brain’s natural ability to

re-wire itself.

• PD Warrior retrains the brain

and helps people feel stronger and

fitter.

• Muscle People Physiotherapy run

the PD Warrior each week with a

group of 10 people.

What type of Parkinson’s do you have?

Knowing the answer to this question can slow down your Parkinson’s and

help you to look, move and feel better.
