Frame to line up against

Tour De France winner

• By Gordon Findlater

FORMER CASHMERE High

School student Alex Frame will

take on the world’s best cyclist

next month.

The 23-year-old will go up

against current Tour De France

champion Chris Froome, who

will ride for Team Sky at the

Herald Sun Tour in Victoria,

Australia. The strong international

field also includes

Columbia’s Esteban Chaves who

finished second overall in last

year’s Giro d’Italia.

Frame is part of the six man

JLT-Condor team that will compete

in the tour from February

1-5.

Frame will be disappointed

with his 18th place finish at

the national men’s road race

championship in Napier at the

weekend, however, he can now

turn his attention to riding with

some of the world’s best across

the Tasman.

Frame attended Cashmere

between 2007 and 2011 before

pursuing a professional cycling

career.

In 2015 he was part of the

New Zealand team that won

a gold medal in the men’s

4000m team pursuit at the UCI

Track World Championships in

Paris.

Last year Frame won the final

Frame’s JLT-Condor team

features Australian sprinter

Brenton who is regarded as

one of his country’s up and

coming riders with seven wins

to his name already including

the New Zealand Cycle Classic

in 2014. Ian Bibby, Edmund

Bradbury, James Gullen, Steve

Lampier and Alistair Slater all

of Great Britain make up the

team.

The tour will begin with a

Melbourne.

Centre’s

$60,000

target

reached

for new

garage

• By Caitlin Miles

ROWLEY RESOURCE Centre has

finally hit its funding target to get

the garage rebuilt meaning more

activities will be available.

The centre needed between

$50,000-$60,000 to rebuild the garage

to allow for activities to move

out of the main building, which

centre manager Donna McAleer

said is vital.

In November 2015 the centre

shifted to its current site on Rowley

Ave and while the building could

be used, the garage couldn’t due

to earthquake damage. As a result

they had to cut back on the amount

of activities on offer due to the lack

of space.

“We noticed our numbers start

to decline because there wasn’t a lot

of quiet space for people to come

and talk due to the activities having

to be inside,” Ms McAleer said.

Since the move, the centre has

been fundraising to try and get

the garage rebuilt. Grants from

various organisations and groups

have played a part in beating the

$60,000 target.

Sign of the Kiwi cafe returns

• By Caitlin Miles

AFTER NEARLY six years,

the Sign of the Kiwi will reopen

later this month.

The building at the top of

Dyers Pass Rd was closed following

the September 4, 2010,

earthquake. It suffered further

damage on February 22, 2011.

Before it was closed, it had a cafe

and shop.

The cafe will reopen on January

23 after more than $600,000

in strengthening work.

The Sign of the Takahe, another

protected heritage building,

was also closed for repair

work following the February

2011 earthquake. Work on the

building began in 2015 and it is

set to open next month.

City council heritage rebuild

programme manager Richie

Moyle said the Sign of the Kiwi

building was a piece of “old

world heritage.”

“The Sign of the Kiwi is a

treasure of national significance,”

he said.

The Category 1 listed heritage

building was built in 1916 and

1917.

During its restoration and

repair work, contractors found

song lyrics scrawled on the roof

from an Eileen Barton song,

which was released in the 1950s.

The message read: “If we had

of known you were coming we’d

of baked a cake.”

City council heritage adviser

Gareth Wright said it was

likely the message was written

by tradespeople when they battened

the roof of the Sign of the

Kiwi in the 1950s.

Cashmere Ward city councillor

Tim Scandrett said it will be

exciting to have the cafe open

again so locals and visitors can

take in the views.

“It will be great to be able to

sit up there, enjoy an ice cream

and the weather, and just look at

one of the best views in Canterbury,”

Cr Scandrett said.

Kiwi cafe will

A new $1.5 million filtration

system could help clean up the

Heathcote River and reduce

flooding in Woolston. The

filtration device could reduce

dissolved metals by up to 25 per

cent and sediment by 40 to 50 per

cent. The filtration device would

be housed in the planned new

pump station at Richardson Tce,

due to be built in 2017.

ROAD CLOSURE

Sparks Rd will be closed between

Sutherlands Rd and Hendersons

Rd from today due to the installation

of the Southeast Halswell

Waste Water Scheme. The road

will be closed until January 29.

Detours have been set up via Hendersons

The Spreydon Bowling Club

Missing war

medals still

a mystery

• By Andrew King

WELL-KNOWN rugby league

identity Bill Whitehead’s war

medals are still missing in action.

Mr Whitehead, of Bishopdale,

approached Star Media 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.

Church rebuild a fusion

of tradition and technology

• By Caitlin Miles

THE REPAIRED Opawa

Community Church may look

like the old one but is full of new

technology after a $3.5 million

rebuild.

The old brick Methodist

church on the corner of Opawa

Rd and Aynsley Tce was built

in 1907. It suffered significant

damage in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

The church was officially

reopened on Saturday after a

two-year rebuild, with members

of the congregation and the

community able to look at

the new church and hall

facilities.

The roof of the church was

salvaged but the rest of the

building was demolished.

Opawa Community Church

treasurer Bruce Hille said the

new building incorporated the

style of the old church with

modern technology.

The original building’s roof,

timber beams and pillars

were reused, along with the

rose window, which was an

important aspect of the church.

Mr Hille said the rebuild was

undertaken with the future in

mind. Broadband, projectors and

cameras have been designed into

the building

“It’s an absolute thrill to be

back in the church,” Mr Hille

said.

The project took nearly

two years to complete and

cost $3.5 million. The church

congregation took out a $300,000

mortgage from the Methodist

Church of New Zealand to help

cover some of the costs.

To raise the money to cover

the mortgage, members of the

church held several fundraisers

and author Marlene Bennetts

wrote a book titled The Little

Drummer Boy.

She said another church

member asked her to write a

Christmas-inspired children’s

book.

Mr Hille said the congregation

had so far raised $75,000

towards the mortgage with more

fundraisers planned.

Higgs Construction was tasked

with the rebuild. Mr Hille said

the firm was chosen because of

the work it did on Knox Church

in Bealey Ave.

The city council also

contributed towards furniture

for the new hall, which is

frequently used by community

groups.

Crummer looking forward to reunion

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

and Crummer will perform together at Selwyn Sounds, along

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

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

VICTOR CLAUDE was

contracted to create a marketing

campaign for Cholmondeley

Children’s Centre, but that

turned into more than 20 years

working with the trust and

children.

Mr Claude received a Queen’s

Service Medal in the New Year

Honours for his work

The Spreydon resident first became

involved with the trust to

make a professional advertising

campaign and when he thought

about his own three sons he

wanted to get involved.

“I couldn’t help but compare

those boys to some of those kids

and what they had and what they

needed,” Mr Claude said.

He was invited to become a

board member which he did for

21 years, five of which he spent

as president. One of his proudest

achievements was progressing

the trust’s financial status.

“Over the five years we made a

bit of progress which was important,”

he said.

During his time as president

Mr Claude used his own

marketing company to assist

with marketing for the trust,

particularly in the production of

its Care magazine. For his work

his 46 years of service to education.

He was the deputy principal

at Hillmorton High School,

where he had worked for his

entire 46-year career. In 2015 he

retired due to motor neurone

disease. He received his honour

before he passed away aged 73,

on December 22. His award was

approved by the Queen before

his death, so Governor-General

Dame Patsy Reddy announced

his honour was changed to take

effect from December 21 due to

the circumstances.

Mr Leslie mentored hundreds

A NEW mountain bike

track built predominantly by

volunteers has opened on the

Port Hills.

The 3.8km route, currently

track to be built on the hills in

about a decade.

It’s the result of work by

about 40 volunteers, contractors

and city council staff.

“It’s been 75 per cent

volunteer labour, 15 per cent

contracted construction and

about 10 per cent council

oversight, planning and helping

He co-ordinated the team

years.

that’s designed for beginner to

The only access to the track

is from the mid-way point of

the Rapaki Track, but there are

plans to introduce other access

points.

It takes about 25 minutes

to ride, but Mr Allan said the

track provided a lot of variety

and challenges without too

much risk.

“The scenery looking out

over the city is amazing. It

has really filled that niche of

a track that helps people get

from the flat lands up on to the

hills because there are no steep

drop-offs,” Mr Allan said.

“It gives them a bit of a

playground where they can ride

without fear of taking a tumble

because there’s nothing to fall

on but tussock. We’re really

pleased to see it open and being

discovered and enjoyed by a

wide range of riders.”

Mitsubishi upgrades popular Outlander

• By Ross Kiddie

I KNEW the media car

evaluation fleet wouldn’t escape

disruption after the devastating

earthquake which crippled

Kaikoura.

A car which I was scheduled

into was trapped north of the

township, and I guess it is still

sitting there and will remain so

until that road reopens.

That is of little consequence to

the loss of life and the devastation

those in the area are living with

every day, we Cantabrians know

full well what that is like.

All car manufacturers and distributors

are having to re-evaluate

the way they move cars through

the South Island and I’m expecting

more disruption to the media

vehicles I have scheduled.

That aside, Mitsubishi did well

to keep my diary intact, a brand

new Outlander sport utility

vehicle was placed in my care and

it filled the void until such time

as the Mirage I was originally

scheduled into becomes available.

The Outlander has just received

another major makeover; interestingly,

it’s just a year or so since

the last facelift. While the shell in

which it arrives hasn’t changed

a lot, there are a lot more safety

components built into the

vehicle, and it has also had engineering

changes which make it

more capable and better value for

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER: New safety package.

money.

What’s more, the newcomer

is available in seven, seven-seat

variants, two and four-wheeldrive,

and 2-litre, 2.4-litre and

2.3-litre (diesel) variants listing

from $32,990 to $56,990.

The test car was the entry-level

LS, albeit with 4WD capability

and the 2399cc engine.

Even though XLS and VRX

specification vehicles get a huge

technology boost, mostly for

safety, the LS misses out, but

it still has enough safety kit to

qualify for a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment Program

safety rating.

New features on the higher

grade models include lane departure

warning, blind spot warning/

lane change assist and rear cross

traffic alert.

Elsewhere, the LS gets new 18in

alloy wheels (up an inch), keyless

entry and ignition, new centre

console with electronic park

brake, upgraded infotainment

system with Android Auto and

Apple Car Play, the latter aligned

to a new central screen display

which has deep and comprehensive

graphics.

The interior certainly looks

fresher with the new additions,

and it goes a long way towards

keeping the Outlander appealing.

It feels like a new SUV

and, as I’ve mentioned many

times before when I’ve driven

Outlander, it is still a key vehicle

in this very popular part of the

market.

Under the bonnet sits a wellproven

four-cylinder petrol

engine, the twin camshaft unit

is rated by Mitsubishi at 126kW

and 224Nm, that hasn’t changed

from the previous generation

model, nor has its transmission

• Price – Mitsubishi

Outlander LS, $43,990

• Dimensions – Length,

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2360cc, 126kW, 224Nm,

six-speed automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.5sec

• Fuel usage – 7.2l/100km

through a continuously variable

automatic gearbox.

However, what has changed

are the transmission mapping

management protocols which

provide the driver with a more

fluid feel under wide throttle

openings, the acceleration

process is smoother and quieter.

And that has always been a

hallmark of the Outlander, it is

a smooth and responsive vehicle

to drive, and that is part of its

charm, I like CVT, and the system

is now just that much more

intuitive.

The Outlander feels even

more spritely, that’s probably not

reflected in a 10.5sec standstill to

100km/h acceleration time, but

it is no slouch all the same, and

through the mid-range that big

four-potter delivers good torque

and associated strength.

On the subject of figures, the

14km

Outlander is also a fuel thrifty

vehicle. Mitsubishi rate it with a

7.2-litre per 100km/h (39mpg)

combined cycle average, and that

fitted with the comprehensive

trip computer display in the

car, it was constantly registering

around 8.8l/100km (32mpg)

with a 6l/100km (47mpg) instantaneous

reading at 100km/h

(engine speed 1900rpm).

I didn’t venture off-road in the

test car, but I did take to a series

of badly corrugated shingle roads

near Hororata and can report

it has spring and damper rates

which absorb well the big hits,

thus providing the occupants with

a controlled and comfortable ride.

When it comes time to

tackle a quick corner or two the

Outlander feels stable and strong

through the steering. Body movement

is noticeable, but it is well

controlled.

The Outlander has been a huge

success story for Mitsubishi, and

that level of acceptance doesn’t

appear to be waning. I guess

some of its appeal can be attributed

to Mitsubishi’s comprehensive

10-year warranty programme,

but also the fact it is a versatile

seven-seater which is big but not

oversize.

When it comes time to go full

force into another generation

model, Mitsubishi will be well

aware the current Outlander is

going to be a 14km

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
