Frame to line up against<br />

Tour De France winner<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

FORMER CASHMERE High<br />

School student Alex Frame will<br />

take on the world’s best cyclist<br />

next month.<br />

The 23-year-old will go up<br />

against current Tour De France<br />

champion Chris Froome, who<br />

will ride for Team Sky at the<br />

Herald Sun Tour in Victoria,<br />

Australia. The strong international<br />

field also includes<br />

Columbia’s Esteban Chaves who<br />

finished second overall in last<br />

year’s Giro d’Italia.<br />

Frame is part of the six man<br />

JLT-Condor team that will compete<br />

in the tour from February<br />

1-5.<br />

Frame will be disappointed<br />

with his 18th place finish at<br />

the national men’s road race<br />

championship in Napier at the<br />

weekend, however, he can now<br />

turn his attention to riding with<br />

some of the world’s best across<br />

the Tasman.<br />

Frame attended Cashmere<br />

between 2007 and 2011 before<br />

pursuing a professional cycling<br />

career.<br />

In 2015 he was part of the<br />

New Zealand team that won<br />

a gold medal in the men’s<br />

4000m team pursuit at the UCI<br />

Track World Championships in<br />

Paris.<br />

Last year Frame won the final<br />

BIG CHALLENGE: Alex Frame will go up against current Tour de France champion Chris<br />

Froome at next month’s Herald Sun Tour in Australia. Inset: Chris Froome.<br />

stage of the tour of Southland<br />

and finished runner-up on two<br />

other stages.<br />

Frame’s JLT-Condor team<br />

features Australian sprinter<br />

Brenton who is regarded as<br />

one of his country’s up and<br />

coming riders with seven wins<br />

to his name already including<br />

the New Zealand Cycle Classic<br />

in 2014. Ian Bibby, Edmund<br />

Bradbury, James Gullen, Steve<br />

Lampier and Alistair Slater all<br />

of Great Britain make up the<br />

team.<br />

The tour will begin with a<br />

2.1km prologue time trial in<br />

Melbourne.<br />

Centre’s<br />

$60,000<br />

target<br />

reached<br />

for new<br />

garage<br />

• By Caitlin Miles<br />

ROWLEY RESOURCE Centre has<br />

finally hit its funding target to get<br />

the garage rebuilt meaning more<br />

activities will be available.<br />

The centre needed between<br />

$50,000-$60,000 to rebuild the garage<br />

to allow for activities to move<br />

out of the main building, which<br />

centre manager Donna McAleer<br />

said is vital.<br />

In November 2015 the centre<br />

shifted to its current site on Rowley<br />

Ave and while the building could<br />

be used, the garage couldn’t due<br />

to earthquake damage. As a result<br />

they had to cut back on the amount<br />

of activities on offer due to the lack<br />

of space.<br />

“We noticed our numbers start<br />

to decline because there wasn’t a lot<br />

of quiet space for people to come<br />

and talk due to the activities having<br />

to be inside,” Ms McAleer said.<br />

Since the move, the centre has<br />

been fundraising to try and get<br />

the garage rebuilt. Grants from<br />

various organisations and groups<br />

have played a part in beating the<br />

$60,000 target.<br />

THE WORLD is your oyster if you<br />

are a young sporting talent, and<br />

former Cashmere High School<br />

student Alex Frame is making the<br />

most of his.<br />

The 23-year-old will go up<br />

against current Tour De France<br />

next month (see page 1).<br />

Frame is part of the six man JLT-<br />

the tour from February 1-5, while<br />

Froome will ride for Team Sky.<br />

Also on page 1 today we have<br />

some more good news – the<br />

Rowley Resource Centre has raised<br />

enough money to get its garage<br />

rebuilt.<br />

This is a big deal for the Hillmorton<br />

area; the centre is a well<br />

patronised organisation and the<br />

garage has been the focal point of<br />

its activities.<br />

So well done all for a great fundraisng<br />

effort!<br />

Sign of the Kiwi cafe returns<br />

• By Caitlin Miles<br />

AFTER NEARLY six years,<br />

the Sign of the Kiwi will reopen<br />

later this month.<br />

The building at the top of<br />

Dyers Pass Rd was closed following<br />

the September 4, 20<strong>10</strong>,<br />

earthquake. It suffered further<br />

damage on February 22, 2011.<br />

Before it was closed, it had a cafe<br />

and shop.<br />

The cafe will reopen on <strong>January</strong><br />

23 after more than $600,000<br />

in strengthening work.<br />

The Sign of the Takahe, another<br />

protected heritage building,<br />

was also closed for repair<br />

work following the February<br />

2011 earthquake. Work on the<br />

building began in 2015 and it is<br />

set to open next month.<br />

City council heritage rebuild<br />

programme manager Richie<br />

Moyle said the Sign of the Kiwi<br />

building was a piece of “old<br />

world heritage.”<br />

“The Sign of the Kiwi is a<br />

treasure of national significance,”<br />

he said.<br />

The Category 1 listed heritage<br />

building was built in 1916 and<br />

1917.<br />

During its restoration and<br />

repair work, contractors found<br />

song lyrics scrawled on the roof<br />

from an Eileen Barton song,<br />

which was released in the 1950s.<br />

The message read: “If we had<br />

of known you were coming we’d<br />

of baked a cake.”<br />

City council heritage adviser<br />

Gareth Wright said it was<br />

likely the message was written<br />

by tradespeople when they battened<br />

the roof of the Sign of the<br />

Kiwi in the 1950s.<br />

Cashmere Ward city councillor<br />

Tim Scandrett said it will be<br />

exciting to have the cafe open<br />

again so locals and visitors can<br />

take in the views.<br />

“It will be great to be able to<br />

sit up there, enjoy an ice cream<br />

and the weather, and just look at<br />

one of the best views in Canterbury,”<br />

Cr Scandrett said.<br />

OPENING: The<br />

Sign of the<br />

Kiwi cafe will<br />

reopen this<br />

month after<br />

being closed<br />

for nearly six<br />

years. <strong>View</strong>s<br />

RIVER FILTER<br />

A new $1.5 million filtration<br />

system could help clean up the<br />

Heathcote River and reduce<br />

flooding in Woolston. The<br />

filtration device could reduce<br />

dissolved metals by up to 25 per<br />

cent and sediment by 40 to 50 per<br />

cent. The filtration device would<br />

be housed in the planned new<br />

pump station at Richardson Tce,<br />

due to be built in <strong>2017</strong>.<br />

ROAD CLOSURE<br />

Sparks Rd will be closed between<br />

Sutherlands Rd and Hendersons<br />

Rd from today due to the installation<br />

of the Southeast Halswell<br />

Waste Water Scheme. The road<br />

will be closed until <strong>January</strong> 29.<br />

Detours have been set up via Hendersons<br />

and Halswell Rds, and via<br />

Cashmere Rd.<br />

BOWLING CLUB SAVED<br />

The Spreydon Bowling Club<br />

won’t close down now that the<br />

Kereru Sports and Cultural Club<br />

has taken over its premises at 71<br />

Domain Tce. The Kereru club<br />

needed a new home after the<br />

building it used at Coronation<br />

Hall burnt down. The Kereru<br />

club has taken over the lease of<br />

the bowling club grounds and<br />

will maintain the bowling lawn<br />

for at least the next five years. The<br />

lawn will be available for use by<br />

bowling club members.<br />

Missing war<br />

medals still<br />

a mystery<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

WELL-KNOWN rugby league<br />

identity Bill Whitehead’s war<br />

medals are still missing in action.<br />

Mr Whitehead, of Bishopdale,<br />

approached Star Media about 12<br />

months ago to try and locate his<br />

Queen’s Service Medal and Defence<br />

Service Medal.<br />

But he is yet to hear anything<br />

about them. He gave them to a<br />

friend, but cannot remember who.<br />

They had planned to combine the<br />

medals together.<br />

The friend noticed the medals<br />

sitting on the top of Mr Whitehead’s<br />

cabinet, and said they knew “a place<br />

that could connect those together.”<br />

“I can’t for the life of me remember<br />

who it was,” Mr Whitehead said.<br />

He said he wanted to hand them<br />

on to his “heirs” and is asking<br />

anyone who may know something<br />

about the medals to get in contact.<br />

War historian Alan Polaschek<br />

said he does most of the work<br />

on medals in Canterbury, but had<br />

not seen Mr Whitehead’s medals.<br />

His QSM was presented in 1987<br />

and he was awarded his DSM for his<br />

army service from 1950-1952.<br />

If you can help Mr Whitehead<br />

recover his medals, email andrew.<br />

to raise $70,000, which Ms<br />

Church rebuild a fusion<br />

of tradition and technology<br />

• By Caitlin Miles<br />

THE REPAIRED Opawa<br />

Community Church may look<br />

like the old one but is full of new<br />

technology after a $3.5 million<br />

rebuild.<br />

The old brick Methodist<br />

church on the corner of Opawa<br />

Rd and Aynsley Tce was built<br />

in 1907. It suffered significant<br />

damage in the February 22, 2011,<br />

earthquake.<br />

The church was officially<br />

reopened on Saturday after a<br />

two-year rebuild, with members<br />

of the congregation and the<br />

community able to look at<br />

the new church and hall<br />

facilities.<br />

The roof of the church was<br />

salvaged but the rest of the<br />

building was demolished.<br />

Opawa Community Church<br />

treasurer Bruce Hille said the<br />

new building incorporated the<br />

style of the old church with<br />

modern technology.<br />

The original building’s roof,<br />

timber beams and pillars<br />

were reused, along with the<br />

rose window, which was an<br />

important aspect of the church.<br />

Mr Hille said the rebuild was<br />

undertaken with the future in<br />

mind. Broadband, projectors and<br />

cameras have been designed into<br />

the building<br />

“It’s an absolute thrill to be<br />

back in the church,” Mr Hille<br />

said.<br />

The project took nearly<br />

two years to complete and<br />

cost $3.5 million. The church<br />

congregation took out a $300,000<br />

mortgage from the Methodist<br />

Church of New Zealand to help<br />

cover some of the costs.<br />

To raise the money to cover<br />

the mortgage, members of the<br />

church held several fundraisers<br />

and author Marlene Bennetts<br />

wrote a book titled The Little<br />

Drummer Boy.<br />

She said another church<br />

member asked her to write a<br />

Christmas-inspired children’s<br />

book.<br />

Mr Hille said the congregation<br />

had so far raised $75,000<br />

towards the mortgage with more<br />

fundraisers planned.<br />

Higgs Construction was tasked<br />

with the rebuild. Mr Hille said<br />

the firm was chosen because of<br />

the work it did on Knox Church<br />

in Bealey Ave.<br />

The city council also<br />

contributed towards furniture<br />

for the new hall, which is<br />

frequently used by community<br />

groups.<br />

with Debbie Harwood,<br />

Margaret Urlich and<br />

Sharon O’Neill at<br />

Lincoln’s Selwyn Sounds<br />

concert in March<br />

IT HAS been a long time since<br />

we’ve heard anything new from<br />

Annie Crummer but the singer<br />

is hopeful her fans won’t have to<br />

wait too much longer.<br />

Crummer hasn’t released a full<br />

album of original material since<br />

1996’s Seventh Wave. Since then<br />

fans have had to make do with<br />

a best of collection in 2002 and<br />

three songs released in 20<strong>10</strong> as<br />

singles only.<br />

While she is reluctant to talk<br />

about release dates, she has been<br />

working on songs for an album<br />

which has a working title of Project<br />

Annie C.<br />

“I have got a bunch of songs<br />

that I am dying to get out of the<br />

demo situation and get into the<br />

studio and smash that stuff out,<br />

I’m the only one stopping me,”<br />

she said.<br />

“I’ve got a lot more to say musically,<br />

I will just have to get over<br />

myself and get on with it.”<br />

Crummer said that while she<br />

was known more as a singer than<br />

a songwriter, she had become<br />

more confident dabbling in song<br />

writing.<br />

“Melodies come really good to<br />

me but the way I write lyrics is<br />

quite odd because I am fully dyslexic<br />

so the way I explain things,<br />

I don’t think it’s the same as a<br />

non-dyslexic song writer.”<br />

Crummer only discovered she<br />

was dyslexic well into her adult<br />

years but the revelation came as a<br />

big relief.<br />

“When I look back I think: ‘Oh,<br />

I have been blessed with dyslexia,<br />

that’s all.’ I just learn things differently,”<br />

she said.<br />

“I forgave myself for feeling<br />

so dumb all these years because<br />

I left school really early and<br />

now when I look back at all the<br />

subjects I took it had nothing to<br />

do with anything technical, it all<br />

had to do with creative stuff.”<br />

Those subjects included<br />

classes on art, Maori culture and,<br />

perhaps surprisingly, typing –<br />

because she could just copy the<br />

patterns without thinking about<br />

the words.<br />

That ability to recognise patterns<br />

helped her land a leading<br />

role in the Australian version of<br />

Ben Elton’s hit musical-theatre<br />

production We Will Rock You,<br />

based on the songs of British rock<br />

band Queen, in 2003. To get the<br />

part of Killer Queen, Crummer<br />

had to audition in front of Queen<br />

guitarist Brian May and drummer<br />

Roger Taylor.<br />

“I had to learn the English phonetically<br />

and that is actually how<br />

I learn music too, I listen to where<br />

heart is needed and where anger is<br />

needed and all the emotions, I just<br />

Crummer has been working<br />

on material for her first album<br />

of original material in two<br />

decades.<br />

emulate those inflections without<br />

really knowing what I am talking<br />

about, but I have just fooled everyone,”<br />

she said.<br />

“I can’t believe I got that role, if<br />

only they knew how I did it. But<br />

it did catch up on me a couple of<br />

times on stage where I’d fumble<br />

with Sharon O’Neill (not pictured).<br />

over a word because I didn’t fully<br />

understand it and I had to dig my<br />

way out of it, live.”<br />

She said that while the way<br />

dyslexic people figured things out<br />

might be different, the outcome<br />

could be incredible.<br />

Crummer, who lives in<br />

Auckland, said she loved that<br />

performing enabled her to travel.<br />

She always looked forward to<br />

playing with Harwood, Urlich<br />

and O’Neill, sometimes joined<br />

by Shona Laing, with the singers<br />

typically doing about three or<br />

four shows together a year.<br />

She was looking forward to<br />

reuniting with them for Selwyn<br />

Sounds.<br />

“I’m a huge fan of theirs and we<br />

have the utmost respect for each<br />

other so it’s a joy all round, a real<br />

buzz.”<br />

The concert will also feature<br />

Kiwi rock heavyweights Mi-Sex,<br />

Dragon, The Jordan Luck Band<br />

and Jason Kerrison.<br />

When she was not performing<br />

with Harwood and co or<br />

going solo, she often joined her<br />

father’s band, Will Crummer<br />

and the Rarotongans, playing<br />

songs which mostly sung in Cook<br />

Island Maori. Crummer took a<br />

more low key role in the band,<br />

playing the pahu and putting in<br />

some occasional backing vocals.<br />

She didn’t mind stepping back<br />

from the spotlight and credited<br />

her father with setting her on the<br />

path to stardom.<br />

“He gave me the gift of music,”<br />

she said.<br />

“I do count my blessings, that’s<br />

a daily ritual for me, the fact that<br />

I can do music and have never<br />

had a job.”<br />

•Selwyn Sounds will be held<br />

on March 4, from 11.30am-<br />

8.30pm. Tickets can be<br />

purchased via Ticketek and<br />

buyers will be able to prepurchase<br />

Long-term services to community<br />

VICTOR CLAUDE was<br />

contracted to create a marketing<br />

campaign for Cholmondeley<br />

Children’s Centre, but that<br />

turned into more than 20 years<br />

working with the trust and<br />

children.<br />

Mr Claude received a Queen’s<br />

Service Medal in the New Year<br />

Honours for his work<br />

The Spreydon resident first became<br />

involved with the trust to<br />

make a professional advertising<br />

campaign and when he thought<br />

about his own three sons he<br />

wanted to get involved.<br />

“I couldn’t help but compare<br />

those boys to some of those kids<br />

and what they had and what they<br />

needed,” Mr Claude said.<br />

He was invited to become a<br />

board member which he did for<br />

21 years, five of which he spent<br />

as president. One of his proudest<br />

achievements was progressing<br />

the trust’s financial status.<br />

“Over the five years we made a<br />

bit of progress which was important,”<br />

he said.<br />

During his time as president<br />

Mr Claude used his own<br />

marketing company to assist<br />

with marketing for the trust,<br />

particularly in the production of<br />

its Care magazine. For his work<br />

he became a life member of the<br />

trust.<br />

He said he “had an idea”<br />

HONOURED: Victor Claude spent 21 years<br />

working with Cholmondely Children’s Trust.<br />

that he was being nominated.<br />

A childhood friend of his wife<br />

spent time in Cholmondely<br />

and when he found out that Mr<br />

Claude was involved with the<br />

trust he wanted to nominate<br />

him.<br />

“He asked if I would be okay<br />

with it and I said ‘yes’ and<br />

thought nothing of it. Then this<br />

fancy envelope turned up, it was<br />

quite a thrill,” he said.<br />

Mr Claude was required to<br />

ACCOMPLISHED: The late Graham Leslie<br />

received a Queen’s Service Medal before he<br />

passed away last month.<br />

make an advertising campaign<br />

for the Christchurch Children’s<br />

Holiday Camps Trust as well.<br />

Which is what let him to more<br />

than 30 years of work with it.<br />

The aim of the trust is to raise<br />

money to send at risk kids to<br />

camps around Christchurch.<br />

Graham Leslie also received<br />

the Queen’s Service Medal for<br />

his 46 years of service to education.<br />

He was the deputy principal<br />

at Hillmorton High School,<br />

where he had worked for his<br />

entire 46-year career. In 2015 he<br />

retired due to motor neurone<br />

disease. He received his honour<br />

before he passed away aged 73,<br />

on December 22. His award was<br />

approved by the Queen before<br />

his death, so Governor-General<br />

Dame Patsy Reddy announced<br />

his honour was changed to take<br />

effect from December 21 due to<br />

the circumstances.<br />

Mr Leslie mentored hundreds<br />

of young teachers and generations<br />

of students over his career.<br />

He was also a coach of the senior<br />

boys basketball team, running<br />

7.30am practices and Friday<br />

evening games. He introduced<br />

the computer studies department<br />

and ran community classes to<br />

help the wider community into<br />

the digital age.<br />

More than 250 former students<br />

and staff paid tribute to<br />

Mr Leslie in a function held<br />

at Hillmorton High School in<br />

December 2015 to celebrate his<br />

years of service.<br />

Hillsborough resident Geoffrey<br />

Harrow received a Queen’s<br />

Service Medal for his services to<br />

mountaineering and conservation<br />

work. He is a longstanding<br />

Forest and Bird Society member<br />

and was responsible for the<br />

rediscovery of the endangered<br />

colony of Hutton’s Shearwaters<br />

on the Kaikoura Range in 1965.<br />

Mr Harrow has worked<br />

closely with the Department of<br />

Conservation and Te Runanga<br />

o Kaikoura to create a colony<br />

for Hutton’s Shearwater on the<br />

Kaikoura Peninsula to protect<br />

this species from predation.<br />

He established the Hutton’s<br />

Shearwater Charitable Trust in<br />

2008 to raise funds to construct<br />

a predator proof fence at the<br />

colony.<br />

A NEW mountain bike<br />

track built predominantly by<br />

volunteers has opened on the<br />

Port Hills.<br />

The 3.8km route, currently<br />

called the Montgomery Spur<br />

Loop Track until it is formally<br />

named, is the first new public<br />

track to be built on the hills in<br />

about a decade.<br />

It’s the result of work by<br />

about 40 volunteers, contractors<br />

and city council staff.<br />

“It’s been 75 per cent<br />

volunteer labour, 15 per cent<br />

contracted construction and<br />

about <strong>10</strong> per cent council<br />

oversight, planning and helping<br />

to transport gear up there,”<br />

Christchurch Singletrack Club<br />

Port Hills track liaison and<br />

development officer Graham<br />

Allan said.<br />

He co-ordinated the team<br />

of volunteers who worked on<br />

the project over the past 18<br />

months. He’s been a regular<br />

volunteer, helping the city<br />

council with track maintenance<br />

on the Port Hills for <strong>10</strong><br />

years.<br />

The new track sits within<br />

Montgomery Spur Reserve<br />

on land that was mandated<br />

in 20<strong>10</strong> for a mountain bike<br />

track.<br />

It’s close to the Rapaki Track<br />

NEW: The Montgomery Spur Loop Track is the first public<br />

track to be built on the hills in about <strong>10</strong> years.<br />

but provides an additional loop<br />

that’s designed for beginner to<br />

intermediate riders.<br />

The only access to the track<br />

is from the mid-way point of<br />

the Rapaki Track, but there are<br />

plans to introduce other access<br />

points.<br />

It takes about 25 minutes<br />

to ride, but Mr Allan said the<br />

track provided a lot of variety<br />

and challenges without too<br />

much risk.<br />

“The scenery looking out<br />

over the city is amazing. It<br />

has really filled that niche of<br />

a track that helps people get<br />

from the flat lands up on to the<br />

hills because there are no steep<br />

drop-offs,” Mr Allan said.<br />

“It gives them a bit of a<br />

playground where they can ride<br />

without fear of taking a tumble<br />

because there’s nothing to fall<br />

on but tussock. We’re really<br />

pleased to see it open and being<br />

discovered and enjoyed by a<br />

wide range of riders.”

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

Mitsubishi upgrades popular Outlander<br />

• By Ross Kiddie<br />

I KNEW the media car<br />

evaluation fleet wouldn’t escape<br />

disruption after the devastating<br />

earthquake which crippled<br />

Kaikoura.<br />

A car which I was scheduled<br />

into was trapped north of the<br />

township, and I guess it is still<br />

sitting there and will remain so<br />

until that road reopens.<br />

That is of little consequence to<br />

the loss of life and the devastation<br />

those in the area are living with<br />

every day, we Cantabrians know<br />

full well what that is like.<br />

All car manufacturers and distributors<br />

are having to re-evaluate<br />

the way they move cars through<br />

the South Island and I’m expecting<br />

more disruption to the media<br />

vehicles I have scheduled.<br />

That aside, Mitsubishi did well<br />

to keep my diary intact, a brand<br />

new Outlander sport utility<br />

vehicle was placed in my care and<br />

it filled the void until such time<br />

as the Mirage I was originally<br />

scheduled into becomes available.<br />

The Outlander has just received<br />

another major makeover; interestingly,<br />

it’s just a year or so since<br />

the last facelift. While the shell in<br />

which it arrives hasn’t changed<br />

a lot, there are a lot more safety<br />

components built into the<br />

vehicle, and it has also had engineering<br />

changes which make it<br />

more capable and better value for<br />

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER: New safety package.<br />

money.<br />

What’s more, the newcomer<br />

is available in seven, seven-seat<br />

variants, two and four-wheeldrive,<br />

and 2-litre, 2.4-litre and<br />

2.3-litre (diesel) variants listing<br />

from $32,990 to $56,990.<br />

The test car was the entry-level<br />

LS, albeit with 4WD capability<br />

and the 2399cc engine.<br />

Even though XLS and VRX<br />

specification vehicles get a huge<br />

technology boost, mostly for<br />

safety, the LS misses out, but<br />

it still has enough safety kit to<br />

qualify for a five-star Australasian<br />

New Car Assessment Program<br />

safety rating.<br />

New features on the higher<br />

grade models include lane departure<br />

warning, blind spot warning/<br />

lane change assist and rear cross<br />

traffic alert.<br />

Elsewhere, the LS gets new 18in<br />

alloy wheels (up an inch), keyless<br />

entry and ignition, new centre<br />

console with electronic park<br />

brake, upgraded infotainment<br />

system with Android Auto and<br />

Apple Car Play, the latter aligned<br />

to a new central screen display<br />

which has deep and comprehensive<br />

graphics.<br />

The interior certainly looks<br />

fresher with the new additions,<br />

and it goes a long way towards<br />

keeping the Outlander appealing.<br />

It feels like a new SUV<br />

and, as I’ve mentioned many<br />

times before when I’ve driven<br />

Outlander, it is still a key vehicle<br />

in this very popular part of the<br />

market.<br />

Under the bonnet sits a wellproven<br />

four-cylinder petrol<br />

engine, the twin camshaft unit<br />

is rated by Mitsubishi at 126kW<br />

and 224Nm, that hasn’t changed<br />

from the previous generation<br />

model, nor has its transmission<br />

• Price – Mitsubishi<br />

Outlander LS, $43,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4695mm; width, 18<strong>10</strong>mm;<br />

height, 17<strong>10</strong>mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

0-<strong>10</strong>0km/h, <strong>10</strong>.5sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 7.2l/<strong>10</strong>0km<br />

through a continuously variable<br />

automatic gearbox.<br />

However, what has changed<br />

are the transmission mapping<br />

management protocols which<br />

provide the driver with a more<br />

fluid feel under wide throttle<br />

openings, the acceleration<br />

process is smoother and quieter.<br />

And that has always been a<br />

hallmark of the Outlander, it is<br />

a smooth and responsive vehicle<br />

to drive, and that is part of its<br />

charm, I like CVT, and the system<br />

is now just that much more<br />

intuitive.<br />

The Outlander feels even<br />

more spritely, that’s probably not<br />

reflected in a <strong>10</strong>.5sec standstill to<br />

<strong>10</strong>0km/h acceleration time, but<br />

it is no slouch all the same, and<br />

through the mid-range that big<br />

four-potter delivers good torque<br />

and associated strength.<br />

On the subject of figures, the<br />

14km<br />

Outlander is also a fuel thrifty<br />

vehicle. Mitsubishi rate it with a<br />

7.2-litre per <strong>10</strong>0km/h (39mpg)<br />

combined cycle average, and that<br />

fitted with the comprehensive<br />

trip computer display in the<br />

car, it was constantly registering<br />

around 8.8l/<strong>10</strong>0km (32mpg)<br />

with a 6l/<strong>10</strong>0km (47mpg) instantaneous<br />

reading at <strong>10</strong>0km/h<br />

(engine speed 1900rpm).<br />

I didn’t venture off-road in the<br />

test car, but I did take to a series<br />

of badly corrugated shingle roads<br />

near Hororata and can report<br />

it has spring and damper rates<br />

which absorb well the big hits,<br />

thus providing the occupants with<br />

a controlled and comfortable ride.<br />

When it comes time to<br />

tackle a quick corner or two the<br />

Outlander feels stable and strong<br />

through the steering. Body movement<br />

is noticeable, but it is well<br />

controlled.<br />

The Outlander has been a huge<br />

success story for Mitsubishi, and<br />

that level of acceptance doesn’t<br />

appear to be waning. I guess<br />

some of its appeal can be attributed<br />

to Mitsubishi’s comprehensive<br />

<strong>10</strong>-year warranty programme,<br />

but also the fact it is a versatile<br />

seven-seater which is big but not<br />

oversize.<br />

When it comes time to go full<br />

force into another generation<br />

model, Mitsubishi will be well<br />

aware the current Outlander is<br />

Pine bark may support<br />

brain function<br />

Recent news from Auckland University<br />

of Technology has people excited about a<br />

pine bark extract called Enzogenol. AUT<br />

reported that patients suffering memory<br />

loss and other brain problems after a<br />

traumatic brain injury recovered better<br />

when taking Enzogenol compared to a<br />

control group.<br />

Enzogenol is not a new product, though.<br />

In fact, it was developed at Canterbury<br />

University and has been in our health<br />

food shops for over <strong>10</strong> years. According to<br />

ENZO Nutraceuticals, the company that<br />

produces the product, a number of research<br />

studies have shown how Enzogenol can<br />

help improve brain function and support<br />

healthy blood circulation.<br />

The amazing thing is, it is made from<br />

the bark of New Zealand Pinus Radiata<br />

with an extraction method that uses only<br />

purified water. Apparently, the pine bark<br />

is full of healthy plant compounds that<br />

are naturally part of our diet when we eat<br />

fruits and vegetables. Yet, the pine bark is<br />

loaded with these natural antioxidant and<br />

anti-inflammatory compounds and makes<br />

a great starting material for this health<br />

product. Keen on a chewing a bit of pine<br />

bark?<br />

All the benefits of<br />

double glazing<br />

Amazing Glazing has been going from<br />

strength to strength since it’s inception in<br />

2004. Max Dorfliger who established the<br />

business that offers specially run mouldings<br />

of Peninsula macrocarpa to secure a second<br />

pane of 4mm glass onto existing wooden<br />

frames, has recently brought Gunter Dehne<br />

into the business. Gunter, a Cabinetmaker<br />

by trade and a technology teacher for many<br />

years, was keen to be back on the tools and<br />

excited to be adding such value to people’s<br />

lives. Existing timber joinery is preserved<br />

while a home is effectively double ‐glazed.<br />

All the benefits of double ‐glazing like<br />

insulation, reduced heating cost and<br />

noise reduction are obtained, without the<br />

prohibitive cost of complete replacement.<br />

The insulation of Amazing Glazing is<br />

better than many standard double glazing<br />

solutions due to the increased air space<br />

between the panes.<br />

The dryer conditions during the summer<br />

months make this the best time to install<br />

Amazing Glazing.<br />

Frames can be oiled for a natural wood<br />

finish, or painted in the colour of your<br />

choice, to blend in with the existing look.<br />

Life is better with clearer thinking, sharper mind, healthier brain and body.<br />

Enzogenol, is a potent natural antioxidant & anti-inflammatory, produced<br />

from an extract of the New Zealand pine bark. In one study researchers<br />

concluded it can reduce the average age of the brain by 12 years in as<br />

little as 5 weeks. Studies show it can improve response time as well as<br />

long & short term memory, concentration & brain performance. Enzogenol<br />

also helps protect the body from the aging process, including supporting<br />

the cardiovascular, nervous system & improving recovery after illness.<br />

ENZO:PROFESSIONAL contains 240mg of Enzogenol + 30mg Vitamin C.<br />

It is the most potent Enzogenol formula available.<br />

The importance of<br />

good blood<br />

pressure!<br />

Aspire<br />

Canterbury<br />

Blood Pressure is an indicator of<br />

cardiovascular as well as overall health.<br />

Healthy blood flow is vital for a healthy<br />

body as the blood plasma transports<br />

nutrients, hormones, metabolic waste,<br />

oxygen and CO2 throughout the body. An<br />

area in the brain keeps check on blood flow<br />

to ensure health of all cells and the organs<br />

they make up. If blood flow is reduced the<br />

brain will try to normalise blood flow by<br />

adjusting the heart strength, frequency<br />

(Pulse Rate) as well as the width of blood<br />

vessels all via the nervous system. Over<br />

a period of time the blood pressure may<br />

keep increasing due to the deterioration<br />

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

and is considered a major risk factor for<br />

strokes, aneurysm, organ failure and heart<br />

failure. Even moderate elevation of B/P is<br />

considered a major reason for shorter life<br />

expectancy. If we can maintain our B/P in<br />

the normal range our overall health will be<br />

improved. Systolic B/P (The upper figure)<br />

is when the heart contracts and pushes<br />

blood around the body. Ideally at rest this<br />

should be between <strong>10</strong>0 to 120. The diastolic<br />

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

arteries between beats and ideally at rest<br />

this should be between 60 to 70.<br />

It has been found in around 90% of<br />

cases high blood pressure is caused by<br />

an increase in the resistance to blood<br />

flow in the blood vessels. It is believed<br />

inflammation and stiffness of the blood<br />

vessels are major reasons for this increased<br />

resistance. Checking our blood pressure on<br />

a regular basis allows us to adjust our diet<br />

and lifestyle and see the benefits in our B/P<br />

readings.<br />

Blood Pressure monitors and further<br />

information on how to improve your<br />

overall health and B/P naturally is<br />
