Quake money response frustrates

• By Sarla Donovan

THE SOUTH Brighton

Residents’ Association is not

satisfied with the city council

response as to where earthquake

donations and insurance

proceeds for the eastern suburbs

went.

Last month, the association

asked the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board where donations

from the February 22, 2011,

earthquake have gone, as well as

the city council insurance settlement.

But the response from the city

council has left the residents’ association

frustrated.

The city council said it was not

responsible for the administration

of the Canterbury Earthquake

Appeal Trust, which holds

$5 million donated by an anonymous

source to the “children of

the eastern suburbs.”

“Therefore, your association

would need to contact (the trust)

directly for information,” the city

council report said.

Association chairman Hugo

Kristinsson said the response

was not good enough as they had

asked the city council to investigate

what had happened to the $5

million donation.

Mr Kristinsson told Pegasus

Post he would not be contacting

the trust.

The city council said it was

still investigating a $1.5 million

donation from the Auckland

Council to restore green spaces

in the eastern suburbs, of which

only $15,000 has been spent in

New Brighton.

The association also wanted

to know where the insurance

claim for the South Brighton

Community Centre, which was

insured for $1.1 million, had

gone.

The city council said that it had

negotiated a global settlement in

2015 for all city council property

claims and, as a result, no money

had been allocated to individual

assets.

Mr Kristinsson said this

response was unsatisfactory.

He said other suburbs had new

community centres, while South

Brighton was still stuck with a

temporary building.

“We are treated like a

secondhand suburb,” he

said.

He said they would continue

to pursue the matter to “get

clarity on why there is so little

investment in this suburb.”

He said it was the community

board’s responsibility to put

pressure on city council for a

proper audit into spending of the

earthquake donations.

THERE IS no doubt at all that the

eastern suburbs was the place to

be at the weekend.

The National Surf Life Saving

Championships, plus the Duke

Festival of Surfing, had the beach

suburb humming.

We have a great yarn from

67-year-old surfer Ron Carter,

who is also a judge at the festival,

about what it was like surfing

back in the day. I particularly

enjoyed his response to whether

there were any wetsuits back in

the 60s (page 7).

Speaking of New Brighton,

there is a new but familiar face at

the helm of the business sector.

Reporter Sarla Donovan had a

chat to New Brighton Business

and Landowners Association head

Paul Lonsdale, formerly of the city

council table. Apparently he was

part of a “new-wave punk band”

(pages 4-5).

Surfing culture celebrated

Display of

boards part

of festival

• By Sarla Donovan

THERE’S A lifetime of surfing

on display at New Brighton

Mall.

A collection of 151 surfboards

from the 1930s to the present

day have been brought together

as part of the week-long Ray

White New Brighton Duke Festival

of Surfing, which started at

the weekend.

Display organiser Simon

Allard said he thought it was

one of the biggest mixture of

surfboards ever displayed in

New Zealand.

It includes a hollow wooden

board from the 1930s and a

perspex board, “which didn’t

actually float.”

The boards all had individual

owners and had been lent for the

exhibition.

Mr Allard said it had taken 10

months to organise.

About 700 people attended the

exhibition over the weekend.

Mr Allard said it was amazing

TRENDS: Some of the 151 surfboards currently on display in

New Brighton Mall.

to watch people’s reactions to the

boards. “For some people it can

be quite emotional, it can trigger

a flood of ‘I remembers’.”

Now in its second year, the

festival marks the introduction

of surfing to New Zealand by the

legendary Hawaiian Duke Kahanamoku,

who rode a wooden

surfboard in front of a crowded

New Brighton beach in 1915.

From Friday, there will be

three days of surfing competitions,

with the best age group

surfers in New Zealand competing

as well as some of the top

longboarders.

Entries are expected to exceed

200, with surfers travelling from

Australia and the North Island.

New Brighton surfer Ron

Carter, who turns 68 this year,

will be amongst the mix and will

also be helping to judge sections

of the event.

In Brief

FUTURE OF TINY HUTS

Voting on the future of the tiny huts

at New Brighton closed yesterday.

The community was asked to give

feedback on what to do with the

popular huts. The options included

keeping the huts where they are,

removing them to a new location in

New Brighton, storing them for the

winter, or auctioning all of the huts,

with the exception of the Wharau

Tiny Hut, and giving the money

raised to the Coastal-Burwood Community

Board to spend on another

community initiative. The board will

make a decision once all the results

have been collected and counted.

JETTY REBUILD

Work will start shortly on the

earthquake-damaged South Brighton

jetty. It’s expected to take 14 weeks

to deconstruct the existing jetty and

rebuild it to a more robust standard.

The project will cost nearly $380,000.

Coastal-Burwood Community Board

chairperson Kim Money said she

didn’t have an exact date for when

work would start.

COASTAL CONFERENCE

New Brighton will host the National

Coastal Restoration Conference this

week. Attendees will look at the challenges

faced in coastal restoration.

The conference will start tomorrow

at the New Brighton Club. Four

Coastal-Burwood Community Board

members will attend the event.

good bones. It obviously suffered

when Saturday shopping was

opened up to the rest of the

city. New Brighton used to be

the only place I think in the

country that you could shop

on a Saturday and, of course,

when Saturday shopping came

in, New Brighton, and the

central city to a degree, didn’t do

anything about trying to change

or consolidate their model. So

when the malls came to power,

the traffic in New Brighton got

less and less. Some shops would

open up and some wouldn’t

and it’s that inconsistency that

started to lead to its demise.

There was a lack of investment

by the landowners and business

owners and, of course, we see the

outcome today.

When do you date that

decline from?

I think Saturday shopping

came in around 1984, so we’re

looking at 30-plus years of

decline. We saw the same

thing in the central city, but

post-earthquake they got a

regeneration plan and I think

there’s a couple of billion dollars

worth of anchor projects given

to it to help lever the rebuild and

reinvestment. New Brighton

needs a smaller version of

that.

plans to rejuvenate New Brighton

You were the manager of Merivale

Mall from 1999 to 2004 and

instrumental in setting up the Re:Start

mall. What skills have you picked up

that you might see yourself using in

this role?

My management style at Merivale was

quite different, I got heavily involved

with the businesses. I created a lot of

activity, promotions and over a fourand-a-half-year

period I doubled the

centre’s turnover and I increased the

foot traffic by 32 per cent. They thought

I’d be the right person to manage the

centre because I was a retailer myself.

Just getting down on the ground,

working with the retailers. They’d

developed a very negative view of the

world and that was self-fulfilling so their

turnovers weren’t increasing, so it was

about working with them to change

their thinking, change the message that

they were putting across the counter

and working just as hard as they were

to try and boost the business. Over the

four-and-a-half-years, we grew to be like

a big family.

Do you see yourself as quite a handson

person?

Absolutely, and same with Re:Start,

that was very grassroots. Hard work

to get that project off the ground, even

harder to make it successful. Most

people think it was successful straight

away, but it was very hard to get the

confidence back of people here in

Christchurch to come back into the city.

You must be very proud of that

achievement?

Very proud, but you don’t do it alone,

there was a group of us that set out to do

the project. I came up with the idea but

the idea’s only one thing – unless you’ve

got people to help you realise it, it’s just

an idea.

So, do you have any special links to

New Brighton?

I lived here for a couple of years about

12 years ago. As a kid, we used to come

out here to the beach. My brothers and

I used to have a routine on hot days:

We’d go to Jellie Park in the morning,

swim there till about 11am, bus out to

Brighton, go for a swim then back to

Jellie Park. And, of course, as a family

we used to come out here on a Saturday.

I see you’re a former Burnside High

School student. Are you Christchurch

born and bred?

Not quite. I was born in Gore and

moved to Invercargill with my family

when I was four, then moved here when

I was 11. We came up in 1974, when the

Commonwealth Games were on.

Were you at school with John Key?

Not in the same class but the same

year. Don’t remember him at all. I did

play at school assemblies in the band

back then, though, and when we got the

cheque from John Key for Re:Start, I said

we were at the same school, same year.

He said he thought the name rang a

bell. He remembered me from the band

playing.

Small world. So where do you call

home now and who does the cooking?

Just out of central Christchurch. I’ve

been there 10 years and live there with

my wife Denise. It’s a second marriage

so she has a couple of kids (they’ve

left home) and I’ve a got a 17-year-old

daughter at Christchurch Girls’ High.

We share the cooking, I usually do the

meat and my wife does the veges – divvy

up the responsibilities.

You’ve held quite a few communitybased

roles and currently serve on

boards and trusts around the city.

Where does this interest in community

come from?

A friend of mine once said: ‘You just

like getting involved,’ and he’s probably

right.

Must have been a heck of a shock

when you weren’t re-elected to the city

council?

Yes and no. I could have stood in

central and would have won that

without any problem at all. I chose to

stand in that (Heathcote) Ward. I have

my own personal reasons for why I did

that and I knew it would be a trickier job

getting re-elected, but I was willing to

take that risk. I’d done a lot of work out

there you see, and I don’t shy away from

challenges. I’d make the same decision

again.

Do you see yourself standing for

council in the future?

Look, I never say never. You never

know in this life.

Duke Festival judge still surfing

the New Brighton waves at 67

• By Sarla Donovan

CAMARADERIE and humour.

That’s what keeps 67-year-old

New Brighton surfer Ron Carter

out in the waves.

That, and the thrill of it.

Mr Carter started as a

seven-year-old with an oldfashioned

bodyboard. At 10, he

got his first surfboard made of

plywood.

“It filled up with water and

had to have a bung.”

Any wetsuits back in the 60s?

“God, no. We wore our high

school jerseys with the sleeves

cut out.”

Although his 68th birthday is

coming up this year, after more

than half a century riding a

board, Mr Carter’s not giving it

up any time soon.

He’s lucky. Long-time surfing

buddy Kiery Bennett’s knees

have packed up with arthritis.

They’ve known each other

since kindergarten, went to

Brighton Primary School then

Aranui High together and had a

lot of fun over the years.

“I’m pretty good; got a stiff

back but that’s pretty common

for surfers. Surfing keeps me fit,

but I keep fit for surfing. Do a lot

of stretching, do gym two days a

HANG LOOSE: New Brighton jeweller and surfing stalwart Ron

week and go out when the surf’s

good.”

He has surfed the Pacific

Islands and Indonesia, with

Lombok a favourite.

“It’s similar to Uluwatu but

there’s no end to the waves at

Lombok. You’ve got to get out at

the right time or you end up on

the reef.”

Having a supportive wife is a

big help, he said.

“She eggs me on, keeps me

going. She comes out stand-up

paddling. My boys surf, the

grandkids have taken it up –

we’re beach people. When we

go on holiday, it’s to a beach –

surfing, fishing.”

His advice for new surfers is to

just go and do it, maybe take a

lesson to “get you up and going.”

For Mr Carter, surfing is a way

of life.

“Everything revolves around

it. I love the thrill. I get it the

same as I did when I was a kid.”

Mr Carter will be both a

competitor and a judge in the

Duke Festival of Surfing’s threeday

surf competition starting

this Friday.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Need more vitality?

The nutrient balance of the body is critical

for optimum aging. Research has shown

the body performs much better if all the

required nutrients are available in sufficient

quantities. The problem is it is very hard

to obtain enough if any of some of these

nutrients from a normal diet. Boron is one

of the many nutrients with amazing benefits

that is lacking in our diet. A 2014 double

blind placebo controlled human clinical

study of a patented form of the mineral

boron delivered significant reduction in

pain, stiffness and joint comfort with 80%

stopping or reducing medication and 87.5%

saying they had less or no stiffness in just 4

weeks. Boron also helps balance hormones

in both men and woman and can increase

fertility. It helps promote healthy muscle

mass, fights diabetes, strengthens the bones

and increases concentration and brain

function.

Pure Vitality are based on the West

Coast of the South Island. They aim to

manufacture life changing supplements

Help for

Arthritis and

circulation

problems

When an Otaki woman devised a means

of relieving her husband’s arthritic pain,

stiff joints and swollen ankles, she did not

anticipate the demand that would ensue

for her Aircycle. The inflatable exerciser,

allowed her husband to exercise his finger,

ankle, knee and hip joints while sitting

down. So effective was it that an arthritis

educator requested they be made for others.

A hospital registered it with Medsafe to

use in podiatry and diabetes clinics.

Physiotherapists and rest homes

applauded the results. The gentle exercise

results in improved circulation in hands

and feet. People report swelling in ankles

and night cramps are gone. Leg muscles are

strengthened and, with improved balance,

many advise they are able to walk further.

Joint, lower back and sciatic pain is eased.

People use the Aircycle while watching

TV or having a cup of tea. It assists in

combatting OOS and DVT and ideal for

using while sitting in the office and in a car

or plane. It’s so easy!

See Aircycle’s ad on this page for contact

Natural Joint Support

Just Got BETTER!

As we grow older we want to maintain

our health as much as possible.

Unfortunately for many of us our joints start

to let us down becoming stiff, sore, swollen,

reducing mobility and quality of life. Most

of these joints problems are caused by a

lack of cartilage or damage to the cartilage

which is the soft spongy material in all

joints between the moving bones. The body

continually produces cartilage but various

factors like digestive and health issues, a

lack of enough of the right nutrients in the

diet slow the production of this. If cartilage

wears away quicker than it is replaced

the bone ends can start rubbing together

causing reduced joint movement, pain,

swelling and inflammation of the joint.

PURE Vitality are a small company on

the West Coast of the South Island. They are

committed to producing the most effective

natural life changing health supplements

available.

They therefor have put a tremendous

amount of research into their new JOINT

VITALITY product which contains an

exclusive selection of best scientifically

researched high potency natural ingredients

to provide a multipronged approach to

joint health. As well as a full therapeutic

dose of the more common Glucosamine

and Chondroitin, Joint Vitality contains a

concentrated Deer Antler Velvet Extract

from PURE Vitality’s own Deer farm.

Deer antler velvet extract has astounded

scientists and health professionals with

its health restoring properties. Its natural

growth factors help stimulate the healing

of the body. Another unique ingredient in

JOINT VITALITY is Joint Fluid or megapotent

hyaluronic acid. This has been

shown in clinical trials to be more effective

than glucosamine and chondroitin.

Joint Vitality contains enhanced

absorption Turmeric extract as well as

the highest potency extract of Boswellia

available to reduce inflammation, swelling

and pain which speeds joint recovery and

formation of new cartilage.

The formula also provides antioxidants

from Grape Seed extract to support cellular

joint health as well as effective doses of

Vitamin D3, Zinc, Boron, Manganese,

Copper & Selenium that have all be shown

to be critical to optimum joint health.

This heavy duty comprehensive formula is

designed with the most researched highest

potency extracts available for maximum

fast lasting results. It is recommended

to take 3 capsules daily with food for the

first box or two to obtain the maximum

benefits. One box or 60 capsules is $49.90

with a Free joint cream while stocks last.

The facts about

home ventilation

Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need to

be suitably ventilated, either with opening

windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1

states: “The objective of this provision is

to safeguard people from illness or loss of

amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are

many benefits to forced, or mechanical,

ventilation over opening windows, including

warmth, security, reduction of outside noises

and reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from

outside via the roof space and force the stale air

out through gaps around windows and doors.

The incoming air from these

systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm

in winter or cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is

a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It

extracts air from the house and

at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air

pass through a heat exchanger,

which warms incoming air in

winter and cools in summer if

air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of

the energy which would be

wasted using a traditional positive pressure

system is recovered, resulting in significant

energy savings and therefore lower heating or

cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation

systems have been considerably more

expensive than traditional positive pressure

systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique

manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390

balanced pressure system can be installed for

a similar price as a traditional positive pressure

system.

Warming winter with

EnviroMaster

Are you struggling with the heat of Summer

or wanting to get organised for Winter? With

the ever changing weather patterns, heat

pumps have the flexibility of being able to

value for your investment as you can use it all

and services all the leading brands including

Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin.

We currently have savings up to $600

off the recommended retail price on

Would you like to maximise the number

of days you can use your swimming pool?

Heating your pool can do this and one of the

most cost effective ways is with a water heat

pump. Enviro Master Ltd can supply, install

and service you swimming pool heat pump

providing you with a comfortable, extended

swimming season.

Servicing your heat pump is extremely

important to ensure that it is working as

effectively and efficiently as possible resulting

in a healthy, hygienic heat pump, lower power

bills and greater comfort. But beware, not

all cleaning companies are equal. We are

constantly hearing of people being charged

huge amounts for servicing and all they are

getting is a heat pump clean. We at Enviro

Master, are qualified engineers and therefore

are able to fully test and diagnose any problems

you may or may not be aware of with your

heat pump. Also, as we are associated with all

major brands, we are able to repair these under

warranty if they are still within the warranty

period.

It is important to remember, when selecting

an installer, the manufacturer’s warranty does

not cover the installation and consumers could

be responsible for any repair or damage caused

to the system due to poor installation. Enviro

Master’s five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration so

customers have an understanding on how it

will best meet their needs.

RSI, OOS or Gradual process

Injury can be treated!

What causes OOS? The Department

of Labour states: “One of the

favourable explanations for OOS is

that it is caused by muscles being

held tense or tight for too long.’’

These conditions may be caused

by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions,

vibrations, mechanical compression, or

sustained or awkward positions.

The shorter and tenser the muscle, the

harder it pulls on the places it attaches to

(e.g. the bone). When this happens in the

forearm the pull at those attachments and

tendons causes irritation and inflammation

of those areas. This will be noticed as pain in

the elbow and wrist. When this happens in

the neck and shoulder area, it will be noticed

as local pain, stiffness and sometimes

headaches. The nerves run right through

the muscles. Tension on the muscles causes

pressure on the nerves. As the muscles

shorten, the nerves running through them

have a tendency to both shorten and slide

less well. This causes the nerves to radiate

pain throughout the arm.

Triggerpoints are areas in your muscles,

where a few muscle fibres have contracted

in a knot. These knots (the hard and painful

areas in your muscles felt during massage)

weaken and shorten your muscles and can

cause referred pain.

This drawing is an example of pain areas

(the red area), caused by triggerpoints (the

black X).

This is your muscle’s reaction to continuous


irritation. In most cases, there are multiple

causes for this irritation. These could be:

repeated actions without breaks; constant

static posture resulting in constant muscle

contraction; lack of healthy blood flow; bad

posture resulting in continuous high loading

of some muscles, etc.

As you can see, your thumb pain can

originate in your neck. Pain in your little























finger or forearm

can originate in

your chest. This

is the reason that

your therapist

may treat an

area, other than


where you are

experiencing


pain.

In the following

drawing you can

see the painful

areas in the head

caused by the

triggerpoint in the neck. This is often the

result of poor posture.

Physical Sense has been treating

this condition for the last 25 years.


Their experience is:


• Most of the patients who have had their


pain for less than a year leave this clinic free

of pain (but they have to be very careful to

avoid relapses).

• When the OOS pain has been there

for more than a year, that percentage drops

to 60%.

• The other 40% will leave the clinic with

relief of pain and with knowledge about

numerous strategies to relieve and handle

the remaining pain.























Physical Sense has published the “OOS

Client Information Booklet”. It is full of

handy tips on how to self treat and avoid

this condition.

Rise in

number of

motorists

running

red lights

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CHRISTCHURCH’S growing

red light-running problem is

leaving dozens of injuries in its

wake.

In the past year, there were 65

crashes which left people

injured after drivers ran

red lights, up from 42 the

year before.

At the city’s top 10

worst intersections this

month, almost 5400

drivers ran red lights in a

single day.

That was up 31 per cent from

last year, and 64 per cent more

than in 2014.

They do not include people

turning right across an intersection

on a red light.

The worst for red light-runners

was the intersection of Blenheim

Rd and Mandeville St, where 652

were detected on a single day on

Thursday, December 1.

Police figures have also grown.

In the last year, 1491 people

were ticketed for running red

lights in Christchurch, up from

1316 the year before and 1266 in

2014.

Canterbury road policing

manager Inspector Al Stewart

(left) said he was disappointed to

see the rise.

“It puts people at risk. They

may get away with it 99

out of 100 times, but it is

that one time which could

leave someone injured or

killed,” he said.

He said police had a

focus last year on bad

driving at intersections,

which included red

light-running, and that would

continue until the numbers

improved.

People often had different

excuses when ticketed for running

red lights, but there was no

acceptable reason, he said.

“A lot of people are simply

focused on other things and

don’t see it, but that is just as

unacceptable as running a light

deliberately, because when driving

you should be focused on the

task at hand,” he said.

FUEL TAX IDEA
