A SOLUTION has still not been

found to eradicate Bromley’s

midge plague.

A meeting was held on August

7 between city council staff and

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board members

aimed at finding a solution.

The city council has

spent $800,000 over two

years unsuccessfully

trying to fix the midge problem

from the wastewater plant.

Nearby residents say they have

had enough of putting up with

midges over the years.

But a veil of silence remains

from the city council about what

has emerged from the August 7

meeting.

Community board member

Linda Stewart said her solution

– adding UV protection – was

discussed but won’t elaborate on

other possibilities.

Accredited installers 10yr workmanship guarantee 6 yr warranty

City councillor Glenn

Livingstone refused to discuss

the matter with Pegasus Post,

saying:

“It’s a complex matter and not

easily resolved and it’s better

if we assemble as much

information as possible

before putting it out there.”

Ms Stewart (left) said her

solution would work.

“This should’ve been put

in place 20 years ago.”

She said in the late 1990s, the

South New Brighton Residents’

Association fought hard for UV

protection. But city council staff

said it would only be added if

needed.

The cost has now increased

from less than $5 million in the

late 1990s to an estimated $23

million, she said.

But Ms Stewart said UV

protection takes time, time

residents don’t have with warmer

weather around the corner.

SOUTHERN VIEW

News......................................3-6

YOU’VE GOT to feel for those

people living near the wastewater

plant in Bromley.

There doesn’t seem to be a solution

in sight to sort the midges out

(see page 1).

Nearby residents have been

plagued with them for years and attempts

by te city council to eradicate

them have not worked.

There was a meeting between

community board members and

city council staff earlier this month

to discuss solutions.

But, as usual, they aren’t saying

anything publicly. The meeting was

held behind closed doors.

A board member Linda Stewart

suggested UV treatment. That looks

seriously costly now and it’s a slow

burner sort of treatment. With the

warmer weather about to hit, the

midges will soon be back in force.

But what residents and the public

need to know is what’s going on.

Residents get personal

apology from KiwiRail

Fashion


• By Sarla Donovan

KIWIRAIL HAS met and

apologised in person to

Heathcote Valley property

owners with fences and

structures on the rail corridor.

It’s also going to visit each

owner in person, to ascertain

Gardening

how they are using the land.

About 50 Heathcote residents

were shocked earlier this year

when they received a letter from

KiwiRail saying they needed a

“licence to occupy” the company’s

land at an annual rate of

$350 a year with a yearly increase

of two per cent. The alternative

was to remove any private struc-

Motoring

tures on the land.

David Gordon, on behalf of

KiwiRail, apologised in person

at a meeting organised by Port

Hills MP Ruth Dyson.

He told affected residents that

even though KiwiRail wanted

to formalise the fact that their

land was being used by people,

they were not going to have the

Tasty Bites

“licence to occupy” requirement

or the $350 per annum cost.

Ms Dyson said the residents

Mr Gordon acknowledged

the “overwhelming majority” of

residents did an excellent job of

keeping the grass tidy, and also

protected against fires “which

KiwiRail didn’t do on their side

of the tracks.”

The company was determined

to do a better job in the future,

Mr Gordon said, particularly in

light of the number of fires in the

area over the last 12 months.

Each individual property

would be visited to “get a better

understanding of what the residents

are doing in regard to their

use of the property and in order

to keep the land tidy,” he said.

Ms Dyson said she was really

pleased at the outcome.

“It shows a willingness from

KiwiRail to remedy what was

an unacceptable situation, front

with an apology and work on

a satisfactory outcome for the

future.”

Call for police station

to stay open longer

• Sophie Cornish

A CALL is being made for the

New Brighton Police Station to

be open on Saturdays.

The Coastal-Burwood

Communtiy Board has asked

police chiefs to open the Seaview

Rd station on Saturday morning.

The move is being backed by

New Brighton Business and

Landowners Association’s Paul

Lonsdale.

“There are concerns by businesses

that there has been an

increase of shop theft lately and

we have been in talks with police

on how to mitigate those issues

and find solutions,” he said.

Community board member

and city councillor David East

said police also needed to consider

opening longer on weekdays

than its current 9am-4pm.

City councillor Glenn Livingstone

said with the new

beachside playground and salt

water hot pools, increased police

presence in the area would be

beneficial.

“Having them on site would

make a lot more sense.”

Currently police are required

to come from Papanui for callouts

to eastern suburbs during

the weekends.

Smoke alarms need

to stay on the ceilings

ashion


• By Mark Thomas - Specialist fire

investigator

WE HAD a fatal fire in

Christchurch last week.

So it was not the best week in

our office.

Part of what we do is to

constantly strive to prevent such

Gardening

things happening by ensuring

people have smoke alarms and

escape plans.

In the tragic loss in Cashel St

(right) there were some smoke

alarms.

They were correctly installed

but we don’t know if they had

been maintained.

The last one, still sounding

otoring

when firefighters entered, was the bedroom where the occupant

was found.

But this one wasn’t on the

ceiling where the backing plate

remained.

It had been brought down too

low to give adequate warning.

Had the alarm just been left on

fires last week.

At two of the four events,

people ended up needing

ambulance attention for smoke

inhalation.

Nearly always this is because

they have left the kitchen and

the cooking unattended and

returned to fire and smoke.

Then they desperately try to fix

a situation that is beyond them.

Stay in the kitchen!

Most cooking fires will be controllable

but only if you’re there

when they start.

There was a slightly odd fire

cause in Woolston on August

12 where a low sun through

the window reflected off a

magnifying mirror causing

curtains to start smoking.

This happens occasionally.

However, it’s one of those

things that most of us would

never consider.

Call for nominations

for road trauma awards

ORGANISATIONS and people

who deal with road accidents

will be recognised for their

work.

The Canterbury Road Trauma

Awards will be held at the Road

Accident Remembrance Day at

North Hagley Park on Saturday,

November 4.

Nominations for the awards

are now being called for.

Road Traffic Accident Trauma

Charitable Trust spokeswoman,

Sarah Dean, said the effects of

road trauma extends far beyond

the victims involved in the

initial incident.

The awards are seen as recognition

and acknowledgement of

this, she said.

There are three award

categories, Canterbury road

trauma award for public

service, trauma prevention and

community service.

The public service award will

be for outstanding individuals,

teams or organisations, who

will receive recognition for their

service and contribution to the

duty of care for those affected by

road trauma. This award is open

to first responders, industry

professionals from non-profit

organisations and private and

public organisations.

The award for trauma

prevention aims to recognise

winners for their contribution

to road safety, public education,

road trauma prevention

initiatives and duty of care in

Canterbury.

Those members of the community

who have provided care

or support to a road trauma victim

throughout their treatment,

recovery or rehabilitation will

also be recognised through the

community service award.

Connor Melton crosses

in second at Hobart race

CASHMERE High’s Connor

Melton finished second in

his event at the Australian

secondary schools cross-country

championships.

He competed in the 8km

under-20 category, which was

held on August 13 in Hobart,

Tasmania, and finished with a

time of 25min flat.

“Right before the race, I just

focused on being relaxed and was

looking forward to running for

New Zealand for the first time,

which has been a goal of mine

for a number of years. However,

it was quite daunting eyeing up

the competition in the warm-up

zone before the race,” Melton, 18,

said.

He was sitting between third

and seventh for most of the race

but showed a burst of speed

in the final kilometre to edge

into second place, 59sec behind

Australian winner Joshua Torley.

“I was happy to be representing

New Zealand for the first time,

and meddling while doing so, it

made it even more special,” he

said.

It was a big improvement on

his showing at the New Zealand

secondary schools cross-country

championships in Christchurch

from June 17-18, where he

finished eighth in the men’s 6km.

GREAT EFFORT: Connor Melton

made his move with about

a kilometre to go, finishing

second in the Australian

secondary schools cross-country

championships.

Melton will now focus on the

upcoming track season and

putting in a solid effort in what

will be his final high school event

at the national secondary schools

athletics champs in December.

Cashmere’s Liliana Braun was

also in Hobart to compete in the

under-18 6km race and came

21st.

was proud of the way his team

performed this season.

“It was disappointing that the

boys did not get the result they

wanted. However, they played

well in a very tight game with

not many chances for both

teams,” he said.

On the school’s Twitter

Wednesday and throughout the

season.

“Without parents, friends and

he said.

They will meet either Christ’s

College or Rangiora High who

will play-off in the other semifinal.

That game will also be at

Cashmere High at 7pm.

“We have traditionally been

there or thereabouts in Christchurch

but this team is pushing the

2009 team who were the most

successful boys team ever from

Cashmere,” Sheat said.

With all but one player returning

from last year and most

returning next year, Sheat hoped

the boys can keep the momentum

going for a few years.

“This has definitely been one

of the most enjoyable groups to

coach in terms of their dedication

and commitment,” he said.

Shirley coach Scott Howell said

the round three loss means they

have the underdog status.

Good decisions and limiting

mistakes will be key factors in

beating Cashmere, Howell said.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

RSI, OOS or Gradual Process Injury

can be treated!

What causes OOS? The Department

of Labour states: “One of the

favourable explanations for OOS is

that it is caused by muscles being

held tense or tight for too long.’’

These conditions may be caused

by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions,

vibrations, mechanical compression, or

sustained or awkward positions.

The shorter and tenser the muscle, the

harder it pulls on the places it attaches to

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

forearm the pull at those attachments and

tendons causes irritation and inflammation

of those areas. This will be noticed as pain in

the elbow and wrist. When this happens in

the neck and shoulder area, it will be noticed

as local pain, stiffness and sometimes

headaches. The nerves run right through

the muscles. Tension on the muscles causes

pressure on the nerves. As the muscles

shorten, the nerves running through them

have a tendency to both shorten and slide

less well. This causes the nerves to radiate

pain throughout the arm.

Triggerpoints are areas in your muscles,

where a few muscle fibres have contracted


















in a knot. These knots (the hard and painful originate in your

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Time Honoured Remedy

Supporting Your

Bowel & Digestive

Function Helps

Prevent Disease

Keeping your digestive system

and bowels functioning efficiently

is definitely an important step in

obtaining and maintaining good

long term health.

It is most important to keep the whole

digestive and elimination systems of the

body working efficiently. Many diseases

have been linked with micro-organisms

(virus) or a bacterial component. 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. 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.

According to a country Doctor “D.C.

Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider

vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an

important part of a long healthy life. Dr.

Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly

consumed cider vinegar and honey had

excellent health with many putting in a

vigorous day’s work on the farm even when

well into their eighties.

Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider

vinegar and honey on arthritis can be

remarkable with many patients reporting

almost total relief after taking a course.

As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found

regular administration of cider vinegar and

honey at the onset of complaints such as the

Apple cider vinegar contains all the

acid, amino acids and roughage in the form

of potash and pectin. A scientific study at

ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It

REAL ESTATE

Live an exceptional lifestyle

84 Harts Creek Lane, Clearwater, Harewood

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | Listing # PI48268

Elegant and intelligent design marks this

as a home for an exceptional contemporary

lifestyle. Designed by Architects Plus and

built in 2013, it offers the peace of mind that

comes with post-earthquake construction,

including RibRaft foundation and Celcrete

cladding. Occupying a prime setting, with

lake and golf course views, this tranquil

retreat is just minutes from amenities and

a short stroll from coffee at Clearwater

Resort.

Extensive glazing pulls light and views

into the home, and sliders in the openplan

living ensure seamless flow to a

choice of enticing outdoor entertaining

spaces. Equipped with a six-burner gas

cooktop, butler’s pantry and island bench,

the kitchen will satisfy the most exacting

requirements, while a spacious dining and

casual sitting area, plus additional separate

lounge (with gas fire), offer comfort and

flexibility. Sumptuous fittings in the master

bedroom, ensuite and WIR add everyday

luxury, while an additional downstairs

bedroom with ensuite is ideal for guests.

Three more double bedrooms (or an office/

den option with glorious views to the

mountains) share a smart family bathroom

with under-tile heating. Double internalaccess

garaging plus a generous storage

bay, beautifully landscaped grounds and

a suite of high-spec fittings complete this

impeccable home.

Presented in immaculate condition, this

property invites you to enjoy exceptional

living. The owners have committed to a new

building project and must sell their muchloved

home - don’t miss the opportunity to

make it yours.

Emma’s back!

THAT’S right folks, Emma Palaamo has returned to

the Richmond Club Bistro, and this time she is

running it!

Emma last worked at the Club when her parents

Bev and Steve Palaamo were running the Bistro and

Restaurant pre-EQ.

Unsure of what she wanted to do when she left

school Emma decided to attend university where she

earned a degree in English and Psychology.

“I’ve wondered if I’d ever use my degree, but I love

being in the kitchen. Cooking’s in my blood. It’s what

I’m used to,” said Emma.

Largely trained by her father, Emma said she was

nervous when she was initially offered running the

Bistro.

“My parents have such a good reputation and I don’t

want to let Dad down. The reaction to my menu and

cooking has been great, and regular members are very

happy to see me back.”

With her first few weeks spent gauging what diners

wanted, Emma is confident she has streamlined the

menu to provide a selection to satisfy everyone.

“I’ve listened to what they want and have taken

heed. by bringing back the old with new. I’m also

doing blackboard specials and two course specials, as

well as introducing a Kids’ menu.”

The Club Bistro is open for LUNCH Tuesday to

Sunday (Brunch), for DINNER Wednesday to Sunday

and is also available for private functions.

National Fagasa Speech Competition

Kia ora koutou.

and Kumusta.

Greetings to our

Community.

Last year Linwood

College and a

group based on the East Christchurch

community centres undertook a major

community consultation about our

school. This opportunity to be involved

in the vision for the redevelopment of

Linwood College was whole-heartedly

embraced by the community. Over

1300 people responded with many of

these responses being face-to-face

conversations.

A variety of themes arose out of these

conversations with the dominant being

that:

Linwood College should nurture

personal excellence by providing

varied opportunities to meet

individual needs. The school should

foster a ‘love to learn’ culture that

creates high levels of achievement

and success in ways that are

accessible for all.

This theme drives everything that we

do and at present it is being applied to

how our students select their senior

subjects. Our own LC experience, that

of our families and whãnau and formal

research, all agree that for many

teenagers the process of selecting

subjects becomes more personally

important and meaningful when part

of considering wider career pathways.

This is why LC now calls our Years 7-10

curriculum the ‘Learning Pathway’ and

Years 11-13 the ‘Career Pathway’.

Yes, education is full of jargon but in this

case, there actually are some helpful

phrases that enhance understanding.

Two such terms are Backward

Mapping and UBD, Understanding

by Design. A useful overall summary

sentence is, “Start with the end in mind

and work backwards.” To support this

way of thinking we have redesigned

the Career Pathways booklet and

subsequent processes to link school

subject choices with pathwayunderstanding.

It is about positioning

teenagers to be future-focussed:

thinking ahead, playing to their

strengths and accepting challenges.

Ngã mihi nui to our community as the

positive activity of the year continues. I

am always keen to meet people if any

member of the community wishes to

talk to me about anything. My door is

open.

Gateway to our Future

Emerging Leaders

Last month the Samoan National Fagasa speech

competition was held in Woolston at the EFKS

church. Congratulations to Vai Mariner - 1st equal

for Year 13, Titi Ma Sun - 4th for Year 13 and Gloria

Su'a - 2nd for Year 11. This was an outstanding

result especially considering that they were up

against students from the Auckland and Wellington

regions!

Vai Mariner- 1st equal for Year 13

This year in ‘Gateway’ Linwood College students have work experience in a wide

range of industries and have been gaining some valuable skills.

First Aid

Hospitality

Health and Fitness

Year 13 students, Vanessa Franklin, Amber Taylor-

Jones and Tayla Spence receive certificates for

Advanced Customer Services, achieved through the

Gateway programme.

As the newly appointed Performing

Arts teacher, when I first came to

Linwood College I was quick to see

the wonderful talent that our school

had and sought a musical which our

students and families would enjoy.

Settling on a Maverick Musical called,

‘Wolfstock’ (written by Mary McMahan

with music by Donald Woodward),

this was the perfect challenge for our

students.

With time and practice the students

thrived in this environment and the

end product was exciting, funny and

dynamic. I am exceptionally proud of

my students and the effort that they put

in. To all the parents who transported,

waited, got up super early and gathered

costumes - thank you so much! We

could not have done this without your

support. I can't wait for the next one.

Mrs Boyce-Da Cruz

In early July, selected students

were given the opportunity

to attend the annual Christ’s

College Emerging Leaders’

Conference, along with

representatives from many

Canterbury schools. At this

conference many inspirational

speakers told their own

unique stories and passed

on quintessential advice for

Communities of Learning

aspiring young leaders.

Callum Lawson, said that the

day was an inspiration. His

favourite message was from

the speaker Joel Bouzaid, that

leadership is something that

you can own, something that

you can bend and mould to suit

your traits and strengths, so

that you can be the leader you

hope to be.

Callum Lawson

(Year 13)

Linwood College belongs to two Communities of Learning. Tamai is the schools

of Bamford, Bromley, Linwood Avenue, Linwood College, Linwood North,

Tamariki and Te Waka Unua. The other is Aupaki: Heathcote Valley, Linwood

College, Mount Pleasant, Our Lady Star of the Sea, Redcliffs and Sumner.

We are very excited about the rich opportunities that lay ahead for our tamariki

within these learning communities or kãhui ako from early childhood through to

secondary school and beyond for many years to come.
