Oli back home after

a year on

the prowl

• By Sarla Donovan

OLI THE cat is back.

Well, owner Lyn

Gottermeyer is 99 per cent sure

it’s Oli.

The big maine coon lookalike

went missing in June last

year and Mrs Gottermeyer,

who lives in Marshland, said

after months and months of

searching, she’d given up any

hopes of finding him when

her daughter noticed a post

on the Lost Cats Christchurch

Facebook page last month.

“ ‘Mum, I think that’s Oli,’

she said. I took a look and he

had the same markings. It was

a lady in Spreydon who’d found

him, he’d been hanging around

her place and then took up

residence in her garden.”

Jeanette O’Connor, who

posted his photo on the

Facebook page, has a labrador

and three cats of her own and

Oli had been going in and

stealing food from them.

“She cried when I went and

picked him up,” said Mrs

Gottermeyer.

So how did he end up

travelling from Marshland to

Spreydon?

“I think either someone

took him because of the way

he looks, or he’s got into

someone’s vehicle. We

had contractors around

the day he went missing

and he’s very inquisitive.

He might have climbed

into their van.”

Mrs Gottermeyer kept

him inside for a week

after he returned, just

to make sure he didn’t

disappear again.

She thinks he must have

eaten well as he’s “a bit

broader” than when he left.

“I’ve noticed he doesn’t like

my husband as much, but

I’ve got three fox terriers and

they always got on well. One

of them went and laid down

in front of him. He likes to

be outside; he always used to

sleep on the back porch but

now he goes down to the creek

somewhere and gets soaking

wet. He’s one of a kind, Oli.”

MEOW: Pet Oli is back with

owner Lyn Gottermeyer after

disappearing for a year.

MEASURES TO improve the

safety of school children crossing

Ferry Rd may be brought

forward.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

will ask the city council to fast

track time frames for speed

reduction measures outside

Te Waka Unua and St Anne’s

Catholic schools.

The move comes after the city

council’s Ferry Rd Masterplan,

which was meant to solve the

safety problems by reducing speed

limits along sections of Ferry Rd,

was pushed back.

Board member Alexandra Davids

said safety needed to

come “before masterplan time

frames.”

The two schools want the speed

reduced from 50km/h to 40km/h

during school pick-up and dropoff

times along with flashing

speed reduction signs.

Verbal clips and kicks, I must

On page 1 today we reveal the

Ferry Rd is one heck of a busy

Home, Sea & Between

JoSH BaSHford

The imagery in Josh Bashford’s new body of work was inspired by last summer’s

early morning and late evening fishing adventures. Adventures such as heading

40km offshore to fish for Groper off Banks Peninsula, or ducking down to

Birdlings Flat for a relaxing evening surf casting on the beach, fishing the Rakaia

River or Hurunui river mouth early morning for the elusive Chinook salmon.

These places are of great significance for Josh Bashford. They provide him with

not only a harvest of fresh kai for friends and family, but also the visual material

for his art making.

This visual material is sometimes captured on

a GoPro camera, but more often it’s caught by

simply being physically present in these very

special places. It’s the way a bird may move

through the air, a sudden glimpse of a fish

breaching, or the excitement of hundreds of birds

and kahawai chasing after small bait fish along

the beach. All this strong imagery settles itself

in Josh’s mind and has allowed him to produce

this new body of limited edition woodcut prints

on canvas.

Josh’s latest exhibition named ‘Home, Sea &

Between’ takes place at Little River Gallery from

July 8th until August 2nd.

Council’s $25m property buy-up

• By Bridget Rutherford

MORE THAN $25 million has

been spent on buying properties

for cycleways, roading projects

and flood remediation in the last

two years.

Figures released under the

Local Government Official

Information and Meetings Act

show since November 2015,

the city council has bought 42

properties and pieces of land,

costing $25.1 million.

Two of the latest purchases,

finalised last month, were

properties in Somerfield that

needed to be bought to make

way for the Quarryman’s Trail

cycleway.

The $915,000 purchase of

the properties, on Roker and

Barrington Sts, was contentious

as the owners were not keen to

sell.

It spent just over $2 million

buying land parcels and properties

as part of the Northern Arterial

project.

They included some on

Winters Rd, and others on

Cranford St and Innes Rd to

make room for Cranford St to

become four-laned as part of the

work.

Some properties were bought

for flood remediation plans for

the upper Heathcote storage

project, the Styx stormwater

management plan, and Bells

Creek.

On top of that 13 houses

and properties were bought in

Flockton Basin at a cost of

$3 million. Some were bought

so the property could be used

for the Dudley Creek Flood

Remediation Scheme.

Seven were properties the city

council had to buy because they

could not be protected from

flooding, even after the $48

Two street frontages along Lincoln

Rd were bought last month

for its road widening project,

costing $24,240. From 2011 to

November 2015, the city council

spent $65.1 million on property

purchases.

In Brief

GRANT FOR CENTRE

The Pūkeko Centre development

has been awarded a $400,000

grant from the lottery community

facilities fund. The joint venture

between two sports clubs has seen

the relocation of two buildings

from the now closed Freeville

School on to the Parklands

Bowling Club site. The money will

go towards setting up the former

school hall to provide a venue for

indoor sports, performances and

events.

FUMES CAUSE INJURY

A man was taken to Christchurch

Hospital after fumes from a

generator filled the building he

was in. St John were called to the

scene on Travis Country Drive,

Burwood, at about 7.40am last

Wednesday and found a man

feeling dizzy from the fumes.

Firefighters were called to assist

ambulance staff and he was taken

to hospital with moderate injuries.

QEII DRIVE EXPANSION

Steel safety barriers are being

installed on QE II Drive this

week, from Grimseys to Innes Rd.

There will also be site clearance

work involving tree felling and

vegetation removal along QE II

Drive, allowing work to start on

building two new traffic lanes.

Work is due to finish on July 24.

Rescuing animals

all part of the job

• By Mark Thomas – specialist fire

investigator

I’M NOT sure what got into the

pets of Halswell last week but

over just two days our crews

were called to three animal

rescues in the suburb.

First a dog chased a rabbit

underneath a childcare centre –

and stayed there.

It was retrieved. Second, a

horse was stuck down a bank at

Kennedy’s Bush. With local help

and a vet on-site it was winched

up.

Finally, an old fashioned catup-a-tree

event in Arkwright Pl

shows no record of just what was

done in the radio message log.

It might still be there. But I

doubt it.

To complete this animal report

a mama duck from Bromley,

who is a bit out of season with

her troop of ducklings, fell into

a drain only to be rescued by the

good lads of the Woolston Fire

Station.

A bit early in the year you’d

think. I hope they all survive.

There were fires of course.

A very elderly lady wielding a

walking stick actively prevented

neighbours evacuating her from

her home in Sockburn after a

kitchen fire on June 24.

Consequently, she was treated

for smoke inhalation at the

scene.

Someone in Redwood used a

toaster as a cigarette lighter by

lying it on its side on June 23.

Not too surprisingly the

toaster caught fire.

There’s a thousand ways your

house can catch fire.

But there are many hundreds

of thousands of houses.

Most will never burn.

A bit of common sense makes

it much less likely.

Just how common that common

sense is, I sometimes

wonder.

We said:

Linwood College is on

the move to the former

Avonside Girls’ High School

site while the school is

being rebuilt

You said:

Laura McIntosh – Lots of

chopping and changing and

moving of sites to create this

Avonside Girls’ High School/

Shirley Boys’ High School super

school. Seems like they should

be staying where they are. Is

Linwood going to adopt this new

student-led learning policy like

Haeata?

Lisa Armstrong – This has

made me so mad. I have had

several chats with the principal

and others and they all said that

they won’t be moving, as they

didn’t want it to interfere with

the students and thought moving

sites would do more harm

than good. The original plan

was to do one block that was not

being used at the time, i.e build

a new gym on site, then remove

the old building.

Sounds like saving dollars

became the first priority.

Stephan Lance Gardiner

– Fact of the day, the grounds

were used as the morge for the

influenza pandemic during the

war before the school was built.

Lower speed zones may be brought forward

•From page 1

But St Anne’s was facing the

prospect of a three to five-year

wait after the Linwood Village

project was met with public criticism

and was taken back by the

city council.

Principal Dallas Wichman

said that was “a lot of time in the

meantime for someone to get run

over.”

He was pleased to hear that

the city council may look at

prioritising the speed zones.

“There’s a lot of schools higher

up the order (for getting speed

zones) which are in quiet roads,

compared to us. In terms of the

volume of cars, we must be one of

the highest in the city.”

Traffic figures from April last

year showed along Ferry Rd

between Osborne St and Aldwins

Rd an average of 24,600 vehicles

per day used the road with 1810

during peak traffic from 8am-

9am and the same figures for the

school peak between 3pm and

4pm.

A 1759-signature petition was

presented to the city council in

March, asking for its support in

lowering speed limits outside the

schools.

Meanwhile, Linwood Avenue

Principal Blair Dravitski said

it would hopefully deter drivers

from using the slipway as a

lights.

He said the school was not

eligible for an official, flashing

already had a level crossing.

Gym club stumbles

over QE II Park build

• By Sarla Donovan

IT’S BACK to the drawing

board for the Christchurch

School of Gymnastics after its

proposed new building site was

rejected by residents.

The club has been in its

current spot at QE II Park for

21 years, but says the cost of

repairing the building is high

and it wants to relocate closer to

the new QE II Recreation and

Sports Centre.

However, Dan O’Sullivan,

who lives near Ascot Ave,

said he and at least 25 nearby

residents aren’t happy about the

spot that has been chosen, and

they’ve made their voices heard

in two recent meetings at the

proposed site.

Coastal-Ward city councillor

David East said a “co-operative”

discussion was held on

Thursday between the CSG,

city council staff, Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

members and residents.

As a result, a new consultation

document will now be

drawn up and delivered to the

local community within the

next few weeks. It will present

several options which may include

the original QE II site.

Mr O’Sullivan said he was

pleased there would be other

options put on the table as the

current proposal was in the

middle of the sports grounds

and partially covered one of the

rugby fields.

“It’s going to be an eyesore,

built on a prime position in the

middle of the park. That rugby

field is well-used. They’ve already

covered up a playing field

for the schools (Shirley Boys

and Avonside Girls’ High).”

“It seems like there’s a land

grab. We don’t mind the

schools, but the gym school,

which is a private company,

doesn’t need to be there. It’s an

ugly, tilt-slab, single-use building,

a private facility in the middle

of a public park.”

“They’re trying to piggy-back

on the pool but we can’t see

their point (about wanting to be

closer to the recreation centre).”

The club has said it wants to

remain close to the recreation

centre “so members could

potentially use both facilities in

one visit.”

Following further public

consultation, the community

board will make a final

recommendation on a site to

the city council.

HELP: City council ranger Kenny Rose helped Isla Cook to place her penguin

nesting box at Harris Bay. ​

Nine-year-old’s bid to

help save the penguins

HILLVIEW Christian

School pupil Isla Cook is

doing her part to protect

endangered penguins.

The nine-year-old turned

her school project into a

conservation reality this

month, placing her homemade

penguin nesting box

on site at Harris Bay, near

Taylors Mistake.

Isla has been doing an

endangered species topic

at school and chose to do

her project on the whiteflippered

penguin – which

involved making an action

plan on how to save it.

“I chose the white-flippered

penguin because it

lives close to us so I could

actually do something. We

found out you could sponsor

a penguin nesting box

on Quail Island, but that

cost $500, so I persuaded

dad to help me build one,”

Isla said.

After some home handywork,

the box was ready

to go and Isla emailed the

Department of Conservation

to get advice on where

she could put it.

DOC put her in touch

with city council ranger

Kenny Rose and the pair

worked together to put the

nesting box in place by the

pine trees at Harris Bay.

“We dug out a bit of the

hill and had to lever out

all sorts of rocks. Then we

put the box in place and

chose a nice view for the

penguin and then covered

the box with big stones and

rocks and earth to keep the

penguin safe and make it

look like part of the hill,”

Isla said.

The Harris Bay colony

has around 65 breeding

pairs which produce between

80 to 90 chicks each

season.

Mr Rose said Isla’s

project was a fantastic

initiative for someone

so young, and he looked

forward to seeing the

nesting box become home

to a penguin.

“It’s so great to see kids

taking the initiative to do

conservation and wildlife

projects. As rangers, that

is so wonderful to see, so

we were more than happy

to help Isla complete

her project and get the

penguin nesting box

installed,” Mr Rose said.

Isla plans to revisit the

nesting box site in the

future and hopefully plant

some Ngaio on it to make

it look nice.

Council makes peace

with RSA over Brighton memorial panels

• By Sarla Donovan

AN APOLOGY has been

extended to the New Brighton

RSA after it copped some of

the blame for the “ugly” panels

installed around the war

memorial by the city council.

The $25,000 panels were

intended to protect the New

Brighton War Memorial from

vandalism.

But after their installation

in May, they received almost

universal condemnation from

the community. The panels were

called “hideous”, “horrible” and

compared to the Berlin Wall.

City council staff apologised

for their poor communication on

the issue at a meeting with New

Brighton RSA executive manager

Garry House on Friday.

Mr House said although they’d

agreed to the panels, they had

never seen an image of what they

would look like.

He said the city council

had failed to communicate

directly with the New Brighton

RSA, instead directing

their correspondence to the

Christchurch RSA, a completely

separate group.

Mr House said he was keen to

move on and was working cooperatively

with the city council

to resolve the issue.

Andrew Rutledge, city

council head of parks, said the

city council would continue to

“monitor the situation and liaise

with the community to ascertain

if and when it might be prudent

to remove the barriers.”

Mr House said the city council

had asked him to consult New

Brighton RSA members about

different options for protecting

the memorial.

One option could involve

removing the panels but making

the area more visible through

increased lighting, signage and

cameras.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board chairwoman Kim Money,

who was also at Friday’s meeting,

said it was good to get everybody

around the table.

“We want to look forward

rather than back.”

Mr House said he hoped to

meet with the city council again

this week after speaking to RSA

members.

Rescuing animals all part of the job

• By Mark Thomas –

specialist fire investigator

I’M NOT sure what got into

the pets of Halswell last week

but over just two days our

crews were called to three

animal rescues in the suburb.

First a dog chased a rabbit

underneath a childcare centre

– and stayed there.

It was retrieved. Second, a

horse was stuck down a bank

at Kennedy’s Bush. With

local help and a vet on-site it

was winched up.

Finally, an old fashioned

cat-up-a-tree event in Arkwright

Pl shows no record

of just what was done in the

radio message log.

It might still be there. But I

doubt it.

To complete this animal

report a mama duck from

Bromley, who is a bit out

of season with her troop of

ducklings, fell into a drain

only to be rescued by the

good lads of the Woolston

Fire Station.

A bit early in the year

you’d think. I hope they all

survive.

There were fires of course.

A very elderly lady wielding

a walking stick actively

prevented neighbours evacuating

her from her home in

Sockburn after a kitchen fire

on June 24.

Consequently, she was

treated for smoke inhalation

at the scene.

Someone in Redwood used

a toaster as a cigarette lighter

by lying it on its side on June

23.

Not too surprisingly the

toaster caught fire.

There’s a thousand ways

your house can catch fire.

But there are many hundreds

of thousands of houses.

Most will never burn.

A bit of common sense

makes it much less likely.

Just how common that

common sense is, I sometimes

wonder.

Golden anniversary for jewellers

• By Sarla Donovan

ANDREW KELSO is fascinated

by jewellery.

The 45-year-old took over

Westende Jewellers from his

father Roger in 2013, but he’s

worked in the business for 30

years, starting as a youngster doing

engraving work after school.

He loves seeing the hallmarks

on a ring or bracelet, telling

where and when it was made.

Vintage and antique pieces

have become an increasingly

important part of the business, a

way to differentiate from massproduced

chain stores.

Westende celebrate their 50th

anniversary this year and Mr

Kelso says helping customers is

still one of the most fulfilling

parts of the business.

“A lady we helped recently had

developed arthritis in her hands

and had to cut her rings off but

they meant a lot to her, so we

made a bangle and set her stones

into it,” he said.

“There’s nothing more satisfying

than a remake; (it might

be) helping a couple with their

engagement or wedding bands,

sourcing stones – just seeing a

client’s dream become a reality.”

BLING: Andrew Kelso celebrates the 50th anniversary of the family-owned Westende jewellery

store.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Mr Kelso’s father was a police

detective in 1967 when he

decided to buy a pawn shop and

costume jeweller, also called

Westende Jewellers, at 207 Manchester

St.

He’d married Margaret a year

earlier and the couple, who were

in their early 20s, weren’t keen

on a possible transfer out of

Christchurch.

Roger already knew a bit about

the business having visited

regularly during policing work,

so they took the plunge and

worked long hours over the

next few years to transform the

pawnbrokers into a fine jewellery

business.

They shifted to the corner of

Manchester and Worcester Sts in

the 1980s.

But, after the September 4,

2010, earthquake, the business

settled in Colombo St, Sydenham.

Dealing in vintage goods

means they have to take precautions,

always ask for identification

and hold the pieces for a

period of time.

“If there’s any reason staff

are suspicious, they’ll let police

know. Once we made a specific

time for a guy selling jewellery to

come back and the police were

here waiting for him – took him

away for a wee chat.”

Fashions come and go in

jewellery, but Mr Kelso assures

me diamonds are still a girl’s best

friend.

“If it’s an engagement ring, it’s

generally a diamond. They still

far outsell any other gemstone.

Sapphires would be second and

rubies are also popular at the

moment.”

Cross-country athletes make NZ team

• By Andrew King

CASHMERE HIGH students

Connor Melton and Liliana

Braun have been selected for the

New Zealand secondary schools

cross-country team to compete

in Hobart in August.

Melton and Braun competed

in the New Zealand secondary

schools cross-country championships,

held in Christchurch

on June 17-18, and will now test

their skills against international

competition.

Both Braun and Melton said

it was their goal to be chosen to

A NERVOUS wait has given way

to jubilation for Cashmere High’s

first XI football players as they

found out yesterday

they will be heading

to nationals.

Cashmere, along

with Lincoln High,

St Andrew’s College

and St Thomas, will

compete against the

best 32 teams in the

country at the national

tournament in

Napier in September.

It was touch and go

for Cashmere, who were pushed

out of the top four last week after

a 3-2 loss to St Thomas, but the

school was told on Monday that

in spite of that, they have qualified.

am interested to see how I will go

against a larger field, as I’ve only

ever raced against New Zealanders

before.”

Said Melton: “After missing

out in previous years, making

this team in my last year of high

school is a big achievement for

me.”

Cashmere High sports director

Michael Jones said the school is

proud of their students selection.

“Connor has been a great

representative of the school at

running events throughout his

time at Cashmere and it is great

to see his hard work rewarded.

Liliana has been shining since

she arrived in year 9 and continues

to do great things with her

running. She is a truly dedicated

and talented athlete,” he said.

Melton said for the past four

months he has been training and

racing six times a week, specifically

to peak for nationals, where

the national team gets selected

from.

Braun said she has also been

putting in the hard yards with

five runs a week and a day dedicated

to biking.

“I was pleased that all the

training has paid off,” Braun

said.​

Coach Craig Squire said the

players were distraught after the

loss, but that has all changed now

they know they have made it.

“This means a lot to this team.

We have been to the

past six national tournaments

in a row and

getting there again was

a definite goal for us,”

he said.

He said it will take a

bit of pressure off his

side and hopefully let

them concentrate on the

football.

“Now we need to get

back on the horse. I was

proud of the effort the boys made

to stay in the game last week.

However, we need to show more

desire and be hungry for the ball

with more passion,” he said.

Burnside High will be disappointed,

Squire said. They now

have to apply for a wildcard position,

in spite of being in fourth

spot while Cashmere are in fifth.

Cashmere takes on Papanui at

the Christchurch Football Centre

tomorrow afternoon at 4pm in

round 10 of the Connetics first XI

football competition.

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the right heat

pump for your home

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,

most homes include at least one heat pump,

if not a whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more

convenient than a log burner as you just need

to press a button. But how do you decide

what is best? Choosing the right sized heat

pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort

levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore

important to get professional advice from heat

pump experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it

is important to select the correct size for your

requirements that will handle the job but not

be unnecessarily overpowered.

Secondly, the location of your heat pump

is also extremely important. The cheapest

installation is a back to back where the outdoor

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor

unit however this is not necessarily always

the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of

systems and price, so it depends on your

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.

Supporting your bowel and digestive

function helps prevent disease

It is most important to keep the

whole digestive and elimination

systems of the body working efficiently.

Otherwise toxins that have not been

eliminated set the stage for disease.

Many diseases have been linked with

micro-organisms (virus) or a bacterial

component. Generally these microorganisms

or bacteria can only survive

due to the fact that the environment

they are in is suitable for their survival.

Non eliminated toxins are probably

one of the main causative factors for

their survival. We know that when the

digestive system and bowel function

are poor we have many more health

problems. These include arthritis, digestive

problems like reflux and stomach pain,

bladder infections, chronic skin conditions

such as eczema, psoriasis and rashes, poor

eyesight, pain and inflammation, tumors

and a weakened immune system just to

name a few.

Nature’s Sunshine LBS II contains a

highly effective blend of natural herbs to

support the whole digestive system and it

is especially effective at cleansing the lower

bowel and intestinal tract. It is commonly

used for arthritis, constipation, diarrhea,

digestive problems, dry stool, fever, colds

and influenza, flatulence, gallstones, gout,

skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis,

urinary infections, liver dysfunction,

Candida, weakened immune function and

for people who want to keep their health as

good as possible.

The herbs in LBS II help stimulate the

production of digestive fluids and bile

for efficient digestion. This alone may

help prevent many diseases as a properly

working digestive system will itself

neutralise many disease causing organisms

before they have a chance to cause any

problems. LBS II also stimulates peristaltic

action of the colon effectively cleansing

the colon of any accumulated build-ups of

waste material. It also relaxes abdominal

cramping and spasms, enhances liver

function, purifies the blood, neutralizes

acidic conditions, helps destroy intestinal

parasites and worms, and fights infection.

Keeping your digestive system and

bowels functioning efficiently is definitely

an important step in obtaining and

maintaining good long term health.

Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New

Osteoporosis is a serious condition

...but research shows it can be reversed!

Osteoporosis is not taken as a serious

condition by most people! Most people

don’t realise they have osteoporosis until

a fracture happens, as there are usually

no signs or symptoms. Fractures can

commonly be debilitating with chronic

pain and can lead to early mortality.

Fractures kill more women than all

gynaecological cancers put together and

one in six women taken to hospital with

a hip fracture, will not come out alive and

men fare even worse. Around one in three

women and one in twelve men are affected

with osteoporosis.

The most common osteoporotic fractures

are of the wrist, spine, shoulder and hip.

Vertebral collapse is a compression fracture

and causes back pain often with shooting

pains due to compression of the nerves.

Multiple vertebral fractures lead to a

stooped posture, loss of height and chronic

pain with reduced mobility. Hip fractures,

in particular, usually require prompt

surgery, as there is a serious risk associated

with it of deep vein thrombosis and

pulmonary embolism leading to increased

mortality.

Osteoporosis literally means “bones with

holes”. It occurs when bones lose minerals

such as calcium more quickly than the

body can replace them. Although calcium

is essential for bone health other minerals

like magnesium, zinc and trace minerals

like silica, boron, manganese, copper are

essential also. Vitamin’s D3 and K2 have

been shown to be essential in a bone

support program.

A less well known mineral strontium,

that is naturally found in your bones

has been researched and found in

four landmark studies to actually

reverse bone loss when sufficient other

nutrients are present. One study of 1,649

postmenopausal women with osteoporosis

who had had at least one fracture were

divided into two groups. Both groups

took vitamin D and calcium supplements.

One group were also given 680mg/day

of strontium. After the three year study

the strontium group showed an unheard

of average bone growth of 8.1%. This

study shows that osteoporosis can not

only be halted but may even be reversed

and without the side effects of common

osteoporosis drugs.

Further information on how to

support your bone density and overall

health is available from the natural

health specialists at Marshall’s Health

& Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road,

New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are

Always Happy to Help!

BREAKTHROUGH AGAINST OSTEOPOROSIS

Osteoporosis, the weakening of the bone is a serious health threat

that often leads to severe pain, fractures & early mortality. Research

has found the bones can be re-mineralised & strengthened when

the required nutrients are present. Minerals calcium, magnesium &

vitamins D3 & K2 are essential but are not enough in many cases.

A missing link appears to be the mineral strontium.

Research shows strontium to positively affect bone density.

- Supports strong healthy bones, teeth & nails

- Is a naturally occurring mineral often lacking in the

modern diet

- Found in healthy bones & teeth but lacking in people

with osteoporosis

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Journey to a smile

continued...

“Over the last few years Smile Concepts has

helped my extreme fear of the dentist, treating

me as a person not a dental guinea pig.”

Visiting the dentist can be a daunting proposition for many

people, who fear they may have to endure a painful process

when having their teeth treated. That’s where the caring team

of experienced dentists team at Smile Concepts can help, by

providing painless treatment. Plus, the personal touch they

offer by taking time to go over all the treatment options and

associated costs means those who fear a dental surgery will be

immediately put at ease.

One patient who is very happy with their service tells her

story…

“My name is Jacinta. I am a 27-year-old wife and mum from

Christchurch. I have enamel hypoplasia, which is a lack in

enamel formation. In most cases, the enamel on people’s teeth is

low or thin, but I have no enamel on all my teeth, resulting in a

dark-yellow colouring.

After a life of struggling with everything from bullying to

failed ‘fixes’, I decided to once again pursue my smile dreams.

After ringing around Christchurch dentists, Smile Concepts was

the first ‘off the bat’ to know about hypoplasia. Natalie happily

booked me in for a consultation.

Over the last few years Smile Concepts has helped my

extreme fear of the dentist, treating me as a person not a dental

guinea pig. Natalie always did what she knew would work

instead of trying things that might.

In January 2017 I contacted Dr Dee from Vogue Dental

Studios in Melbourne. He is kindly donating his time, skills

and expertise to give me my dream smile. Financially, this is

something I would have never been able to do without Dr Dee.

And Natalie has been fabulous in helping prepping me for my

trip to Australia with photos, bite guards, moulds and cleaning”.

On June 2, Jacinta had the opportunity to tell her story on

Seven Sharp, just one week before she flew to Melbourne to

begin her journey. Before she left, Jacinta had her final hygienist

clean at Smile Concepts where the team wished her well in

Melbourne, and now look forward to helping her maintain her

beautiful new smile in the near future.

Smile Concepts is proud to help patients like

Jacinta with any dental problems they may have.

Their knowledgeable staff members use safe and

proven procedures, the latest technology, materials

and philosophies to enhance your teeth and smile.

Trees and Power Lines

The responsibilities of tree owners and Orion under the

Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003

Orion New Zealand owns and operates the electricity distribution network in central

Canterbury between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers and from the Canterbury coast

to Arthur’s Pass. Trees touching power lines account for 10-20% of all unplanned power

outages on our network. If you see a tree touching a power line, or any other hazardous

tree condition, please contact us immediately on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

This advertisement provides a general notice of the Electricity (Hazards from Trees)

Regulations 2003 and the dangers of trees near power lines. More detail on these issues

can be found on our website www.oriongroup.co.nz or by phoning us on 03 363 9898.

The Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003

The regulations set out the responsibilities of electricity line companies and tree owners.

The purpose of the regulations is to protect the safety of the public and help to ensure a

secure supply of electricity. The regulations:

• define safe separation distances between trees and power lines

• specifies who is responsible for ensuring clearances are maintained

• places potential liability on the tree owner if any damage or accident occurs due to

trees touching power lines. (Note that the word “trees” includes all types of vegetation,

including shrubs, hedges and climbing vines.)

What are the dangers?

Trees near power lines need to be trimmed or removed for the following reasons:

• children like to climb trees and when trees are close to power lines there is a risk of

serious injury or death

• in severe weather conditions, vegetation can become electrically “live” and may

electrocute anyone or anything that touches it

• while a tree may not touch a power line in fine weather, branches can bend or break in

wind or snow storms, causing serious damage and possibly prolonged power outages

• in dry conditions, electrical sparking caused by branches or windblown debris on lines

may cause fires.

Minimum distances required between trees and power lines

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees and power lines, defined in

the regulations, are outlined in the diagram to the right. A common sense approach, by tree

owners trimming trees early, will generally prevent trees touching power lines.

To maintain a safe distance from power lines some trees require cutting or trimming

more frequently than other trees, but if it is determined that cutting or trimming cannot

satisfactorily meet the requirement then removing the tree is recommended. Other

situations may require trees to be felled because they are at a distance that is considered

to be a hazard due to falling during storms or being diseased.

Orion’s tree management programme

Orion’s tree management programme is largely governed by the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003. Our programme involves education, monitoring and the cut/trim

or removal of trees that threaten to come into contact with power lines. Through this

programme we work with tree owners to minimise the risk of their trees touching power lines.

We currently undertake periodic cutting or trimming of vegetation within the notice zone.

The intent of this cutting or trimming is to support safety and reduce the risk of power

outages. This periodic cutting or trimming by us does not remove the tree owner’s

responsibilities and in the case of fast growing species may not be sufficient to ensure

that trees remain outside of the growth limit zone. You will be notified prior to any periodic

trimming being carried out and the work will be completed by arborists carrying Orion

identification.

If Orion becomes aware of a tree which is within the ‘Notice zone’ (see Tree “A” in the diagram

below) then we are required to issue the tree owner with a Hazard Warning notice. For trees

within the ‘Growth limit zone’ (see Tree “B” in the diagram below) we are required to issue the

tree owner with a Cut or Trim notice.

What is a hazard warning notice?

If a tree is within the “Notice zone” (see Tree “A” in the diagram), we are required to issue a

hazard warning notice to the tree owner.

Tree “A”

Notice

zone

Growth

limit

zone

Tree “B”

Power line Notice zone Growth limit zone

66kV (high voltage) 5.0 metres 4.0 metres

33kV (high voltage) 3.5 metres 2.5 metres

11kV (high voltage) 2.6 metres 1.6 metres

400V/230V (low voltage) 1.5 metres 0.5 metres

Note:

V = Volts; kV = kilo Volts ie 1,000 Volts

1) These distances are from the power line, not the power pole

2) These distances are a minimum and apply in all conditions including high wind or snow

3) In most instances the power lines that go to a house or building are low voltage power

lines. Power lines that go down a street may be low or high voltage.

Trimming trees near power lines

Trimming trees near power lines can be extremely hazardous and the dangers should not

be underestimated. Contact with a power line can cause:

• injury or death to yourself, family or passers by

• injury or death to livestock

• damage to property and other trees

• damage to electrical appliances

• damage to power supply facilities

• damage to third parties.

We recognise that the public is not always experienced in tree trimming, so we are happy

to advise you on this. We can arrange for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your

cost. If, however, you prefer to arrange your own tree trimming, we recommend you hire

professionals with the necessary expertise and safety procedures to competently carry out

this work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within 4 metres of power lines, a close

approach consent is required from Orion before you start. As a tree owner you may be liable

for any damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

A hazard warning notice alerts the tree owner that the tree has encroached the notice zone

and that if it encroaches the “Growth limit zone” (see Tree “B” in the diagram) a cut or trim

notice may be immediately given to the tree owner (see above).

The growth limit zone is the area around a power line which trees must not encroach even

in windy or snow conditions. The notice zone is a distance one metre beyond the growth

limit zone.

What is a cut or trim notice?

If we become aware that a tree has encroached on the “Growth limit zone”, we will give

notice in writing to the tree owner that the tree must be cut or timed to maintain the

distances prescribed in the regulations, and the timeframes for action.

If no action is taken Orion may then trim the tree and seek to recover costs.

Who pays for the cut or trim?

Orion is responsible for the first cut of trees near power lines, where the first cut is on a

property basis, not owner basis. We have already met this obligation by completing a first cut

of vegetation on all our lines.

The tree owner will need to organise and pay for any subsequent and future cuts or trims.

We are happy to provide tree owners with a list of approved arborists who can carry out this

work, and also advise the best solution given the circumstances.

What fines can be imposed?

A tree owner commits an offence where a cut or trim notice is given, and without reasonable

excuse, the tree owner fails to have the tree cut or trimmed and/or fails to advise us of the

time and location of the cut or trim.

A person who commits such an offence is liable on summary conviction to a fine not

exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues, that person is also liable for a further fine of

not more than $500 for every day or part day during which the offence continues.

Contact us if in any doubt about your tree

We aim to work with tree owners to ensure safety is maintained and power outages are

minimised. We will actively work with tree owners to see trees are trimmed or cut before

regulatory powers are applied. However, as we wish to ensure the safety and security of the

public, we will use the regulations where necessary.

Please contact us or an approved Orion tree trimming contractor to help with your trees,

or to discuss your options.
