LINCOLN RD RAMPAGE

Businesses,

vehicles

vandalised

by man

in a rage

• By Andrew King

A MAN went berserk smashing

cars, restaurant and bar windows,

pot plants and a bus in Addington

yesterday.

Police arrested the offender

on Lincoln Rd after he smashed

a number of car and business

windows, using anything he could

get his hands on at 1.26pm.

He also threw a sugar bowl

through the Addington Coffee Coop’s

front window and used a large

piece of concrete to attack Maxine’s

Palace Chinese Restaurant.

Witnesses said it lasted about

10min and “extreme violence” and

“a lot of swearing” before police

arrived.

The arrested man is a regular sight

and usually sits on the footpath in

Lincoln Rd.

No-one was injured.

Sullivans Irish Pub was one of the

worst affected, with a sign thrown

through a window and several others

smashed in.

•Turn to page 4

CAUGHT: Police arrest the alleged offender without incident on Lincoln Rd at 1.35pm.

Inset: Sullivans Irish Pub’s window was smashed with its own sign.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

LIFE CAN be unpredictable and

that was the case for Addington

businesses yesterday.

A ho-hum early Monday afternoon

became mad Monday when a

man went berserk, smashing windows

and anything else in his path

on Lincoln Rd and with anything

he could get his hands on.

We have the article and photos

on pages 1 and 4.

Police got there fairly quickly as

did our photographer and reporter.

The ferocity and speed of the

attack took business owners and

onlookers by surprise.

On page 3 we reveal a possible

solution to the traffic congestion

that the Halswell Junction Rd and

Springs Rd roundabout causes.

And in sport (page 11) Cashmere

High are one game away from their

first Thompson Trophy basketball

title. They play Christ’s College in

tonight’s final. Go Cashmere.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Halswell Junction Rd congestion fix

RELIEF IS in sight for

commuters at the congested

roundabout of Halswell

Junction and Springs Rds.

A traffic signal will be

installed before the roundabout

on Halswell Junction Rd to

combat the 2km line of traffic

which builds up daily.

New Zealand Transport

Agency journey manager

Lee Wright said people have

significant

delays at the

roundabout

during the

morning peak –

from 6-10am.

“Some

mornings it

Malcolm Lyall

can take more

than 12min for

people to travel along Springs

Rd and enter the roundabout

because of the constant flow

of traffic travelling north-west

along Halswell Junction Rd,”

Ms Wright said.

She said there are often

lines of traffic backed up for

more than 2km while people

wait for a safe gap to enter the

roundabout.

The new signal will relieve

the delay by several minutes

and improve safety during the

morning rush.

“It is frustrating for drivers

and also risky as some motorists

try to enter the roundabout

when it is not safe to do so,” Ms

Wright said.

The signal will be installed

80m before the roundabout on

the Halswell side of Halswell

Junction Rd.

Two sensors will also be

installed – one 200m before the

new traffic signals, and another

on Springs Rd, 50m before the

roundabout.

The signal will only be used

to manage traffic during the

morning peak.

Ms Wright said the two

sensors will ensure traffic is not

stopped unnecessarily and the

majority of people travelling on

Halswell Junction Rd will not

notice any delays.

Give way rules will still apply

at the roundabout, even if cars

have got a green light.

“The green light will give

drivers permission to approach

the roundabout, but they will

still need to obey the road rules

and give way to oncoming

traffic once they are at the

Junction Rd will

roundabout,” Ms Wright said.

Prebbleton resident and

Selwyn Deputy Mayor Malcolm

Lyall said he was delighted

that the intersection will be

improved.

“I’m pleased for our

community that the transport

agency is pro-actively providing

a solution to what has become

a frustrating intersection on

our local roading network.

This change will make a real

difference to commuters.”

around $150,000.

Businesses plan

mass trespass

of shoplifters

• By Sophie Cornish

FED UP business owners are

hoping to take matters into their

own hands by mass trespassing

shoplifters and troublemakers

from New Brighton Mall stores.

The plan works on the same

principle as a trespass notice from

a shopping mall,

except those

caught stealing

will be banned

from every business

that signs up

Paul Lonsdale

to it.

New Brighton

Business and Landowners Association

manager Paul Lonsdale is

behind the idea.

“It sends a clear message that

we’re not going to tolerate this sort

of behaviour out in New Brighton,”

he said.

“If one member wants to trespass

someone from their business, then

they are trespassed from all the

businesses,” Mr Lonsdale said.

He set up a similar scheme in

the central city in 2007 when he

was involved with the Central City

Business Association.

Mr Lonsdale claims the programme

was very successful.

Twelve New Brighton businesses

have so far shown interest.

Man goes on rampage

•From page 1

Owner Mark Sullivan said it was a

real pain to have to shut down while

the damage was being repaired.

“He was in the middle of the road

throwing things at cars and attacked

a bus,” he said.

Sergeant Mike Jackson said it

would appear the man had mental

health issues and has done “a lot of

damage.”

The man was arrested without a

struggle, but swore at officers as they

put him in the police vehicle.

Mosaic by Simo manager Sumeet

Misra said they occasionally gave

the offender food. It appeared he had

just snapped, he said.

The man had tried to throw a

pot plant through the restaurant

window and when he couldn’t he

just smashed it on the floor before

continuing to smash things in the

car park.

Fast food outlet angers residents

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A NEW McDonald’s on Ferry

Rd has been given the tick of

approval by the city council – but

not by the community.

Many residents are angry

they were not given a chance to

have a say on the plan, which

has been approved by the city

council without any community

consultation.

The site chosen for the new restaurant,

on the corner of Ferry

Rd and Heathcote St, is less than

1km from two primary schools,

and two early childhood centres.

It is 2.4km from the fast food

outlets around Eastgate Shopping

Centre, which include

another McDonald’s, a KFC,

Burger King and Dominos Pizza.

St Anne’s School principal

Dallas Wichman said having

fast food so close would be very

tempting for children walking to

or from school.

“When schools are trying to

teach healthy eating and those

smells are constantly wafting

over the fence it’s pretty hard

to get the message across, and I

expect we’ll have similar issues,”

he said.

A petition was organised by

Linwood community members

last year asking the city council to

put restrictions on where fast food

outlets were allowed to open.

But the city council decided it

did not have the legal power to

do that.

Linwood city councillor Yani

Johanson said that was “totally

unfair” on local communities.

“The city council decided it

was too difficult. I just think it’s

a shame because this kind of

case is what we were trying to

prevent,” he said.

The community was not allowed

a say because “food and

beverage activities” were already

allowed in the zone, and the

Government’s Christchurch

District Plan set guidelines

minimising the amount of consultation.

Woolston Residents Association

chairwoman Jackie Simons

said she believed a lot of people

would have made submissions on

the plan if they could.

“We’re always disappointed

when the public aren’t consulted,”

she said.

Kindercare Woolston centre

manager Melissa Fisk said she

had heard a lot of concern from

parents about the plan.

She said it was unfair they were

not given a chance to have a say,

or to talk about conditions set for

the restaurant.

The restaurant has been approved

to open 24 hours, seven

days a week, which she believed

would cause problems.

“There’s enough trouble

around here without people

hanging around at all hours,” she

said.

A McDonald’s Restaurants NZ

spokesman said it had worked

through the proper resource

consent process.

“Our local franchisees are

celebrating 30 years in Christchurch

this year, and as with any

new restaurant development, we

are sensitive to the communities

in which we operate,” he said.

Mega-facility work

to start next year

at Denton Park

• By Julia Evans

WORK ON the new $38 million

mega-facility at Denton Park is

scheduled to start in late next

year.

The Hornby Library, Customer

Services and South West Leisure

Centre will be sited at the park

after months of debate and

controversy.

The facility is still in the

planning stage and it will go into

design at the end of this year.

But south-west residents

shouldn’t expect to be using the

facility until the middle of 2020.

Although at this stage, these are

only indicative dates.

Sports clubs which have been

protesting the mega-facility’s

construction at Denton Park said

they will fight to the bitter end.

A petition, started by Hornby

resident Mark Peters, has received

1500 signatures – including nine

from the original Denton family.

Mr Peters said it was started

to save the “green heart” of the

suburb.

“Denton Park is the Hagley

Park of Hornby. We really feel

passionately about that open

space. It’s been there for generations,”

he said.

He said he is trying to get the

voice of the community out there.

THE Christchurch Adventure

Park is set to reopen before the

end of the year – but it will look

very different.

About two thirds of the trees

in the park have had to be

removed because of fire damage,

and the 18 mountain bike tracks

are being redesigned.

The $25 million park has

been closed since the tracks,

chairlift and zip lines were badly

damaged in February’s Port Hills

fire, which hit three months after

it opened.

Christchurch Adventure Park

spokeswoman Maree Wilson

said there was a huge amount of

damage across the park.

District Health

Board writes Cashmere

Community Board member

Lee Sampson

A lack of investment over

time along with the arrival of

the new facilities at Burwood

have left The Princess Margaret

Hospital teetering on the edge

of demolition.

Admittedly conditions for patients

at TPMH are poor to say

the least, and these structures

are not easily modernised, nevertheless,

these iconic buildings

still stand proud, almost oblivious

to what the natural environment

has thrown at them in

recent years.

So why demolition? TPMH

is nestled at the foot of the Port

Hills in Cashmere on a parcel

of land valued at around $30-

$35 million. Conceivably, if the

CDHB could demolish these

buildings ‘cheaply’ they’d make

a ‘quick buck’ to help balance

the books. In reality, demolition

costs alone will stretch

to several million, which this

CDHB doesn’t have either with

She said the whole shape of the

hill had changed since the fire.

“It’s the logging operation

that has caused a lot of damage,

with the removal of the trees.

So because of that there’s a huge

job ahead to get the trails up and

running,” she said.

A replacement haul rope for

the chairlift recently arrived

from Austria, and new zip lines

also needed to be installed, she

said.

She said about 30 of the

adventure park staff had stayed

on, and those who were not

busy with the repairs had spent

their time volunteering in the

community.

their ongoing stand-off with the

Ministry.

So the make-do health services

and tired facilities have an

agonising short term reprieve

as this frustrating state of limbo

continuous, equally untenable to

all concerned parties. However,

there is one key missing piece

to this puzzle, that’s the broader

logic as to why the CDHB are

seeking to demolish TPMH at

all?

No due diligence has been

provided to support this tact,

besides a somewhat related high

level business case for Burwood.

Moreover, the engineering assessments

generally indicate

TPMH structures to be pretty

sound at around 35 per cent

to 67 per cent NBS with ‘minor

to moderate’ earthquake

That included teaching cycle

skills at schools, cooking for

Ronald McDonald House,

helping with classes at the

Christchurch City Mission and

taking children at Cholmondeley

Children’s Centre for bike rides.

The park is set to reopen before

Christmas, but Ms Wilson said

they could not set a date yet

because there was still so much

work to be done.

The recent rain had turned the

park into “a big mud pie”, and

that made the job harder, she

said.

She said regular updates would

be posted on the Christchurch

Adventure Park Facebook page.

damage, engineers further note

the main buildings could be

’significantly stronger’ than the

current CDHB modelling suggests.

What’s more TPMH’s vast

40,000m2 of floor space would

cost taxpayers about $300-$400

million to re-construct in today’s

money – so potentially the remaining

value of the structures

could seriously eclipse that of

any land sale.

Now the predicament, Burwood

is indeed built so we

frankly don’t require this capacity

at TPMH. So, what are the

options? Well the CDHB seemingly

favour demolition, then

cramming most other services

(including mental health) into

Hillmorton Hospital amongst

others. Personally, I prefer a

slightly bolder vision; this would

involve upgrading and consolidating

existing services and

others, along with introducing a

community-orientated suite of

services at TPMH – ie an integrated

health facility; together

with re-purposing redundant

spaces through partnerships

with the market, possibly Ngai

Tahu. An obvious synergy is the

aged healthcare or the retirement

sector to assist our continued

wave of ‘baby boomers’

– this would certainly help the

CDHB to balance the books to

a greater extent that the pocket

change and lessor community

outcomes demolition offers.

Finally, we must acknowledge

the fact these are exceptionally

challenging times for the CDHB,

and staff work tremendously

hard to maintain service levels

but I can only hope that a newlyformed

government on September

23 can rapidly rebuild the

relationship between the Ministry

and CDHB to allow room for

considered thought and vision

– before all of our crown jewels

are sold off. Regardless, health

services should continue to be

provided from TPMH site to

support the ‘day to day’ needs of

our growing communities.

Southern View Keep

Keeping great vision

Can you see everything clearly

in each eye when you have glasses

on? If the answer is ‘no’ then do not

delay a full eye test says Dr Antony

Bedggood, a local specialist eye

surgeon. A serious eye problem

often goes undetected because

people do not realise that they

could be seen straight away.

Cataracts are a very common

eye problem and modern surgery

makes them very safe and easy

to fix explains Dr Bedggood.

People who have needed strong

glasses most of their lives are able

to see well without them almost

overnight, colours are bright and

near vision is so much easier. Dr

Bedggood explains that he uses

a state-of the art micro keyhole

technique, a tiny incision to the

side of your pupil which heals

straight away without stitches,

and high tech lens implants that

are tailored to your specific needs.

If crystal clear vision, especially

for driving is crucial to you, then

surgery is really not that expensive

- approximately $4000 per eye

according to Dr Bedggood. Health

insurance covers these costs. If a

complex implant is required, or if

patients prefer to also have clearer

reading vision without glasses this

often costs a further $800 or more

to allow a premium implant to

be used, which is not covered by

insurance. There are now so many

options that it is worth talking to

an experienced cataract surgeon

such as Dr Bedggood. He is happy

to provide free assessment in one

of his regular clinics at Longhurst

medical centre in Halswell if you

simply want to find out what

Cataract surgery is a highly sophisticated operation performed

under local anaesthesia - Courtesy of Carl Zeiss Meditec

the options are. Public hospital

surgery is accessible for anyone

once cataracts begin to make

driving, reading and daily tasks

more difficult.

If you could have macular

degeneration or glaucoma Dr

Bedggood states that he offers

experienced assessment and

treatment right here in Halswell.

Both are crucial to diagnose

early and treat actively to avoid

permanently loosing sight.

Macular degeneration should be

suspected when anyone over 60

notes their vision has recently

changed in 1 eye, particularly if the

middle of the vision is obscured

or distorted. Sudden changes in

vision occur when a network of

tiny blood vessels begin to grow

on the very inside of your eye,

these leak fluid or bleed, which

blurs vision. Assessment and

treatment should be done as soon

as possible, within the week if you

have known macular degeneration

or have lost central vision in one

eye already. Dr Bedggood can

provide urgent treatment in these

situations, please don’t hesitate to

call!

A specialist eye test once a year is

the minimum requirement if you

have either macular degeneration

or glaucoma. Dr Bedggood was

born in Christchurch, studied

medicine in Otago, and trained

as an eye surgeon in Wellington,

Christchurch and Brisbane. He

works as a senior specialist in the

public hospital 75% of his time

and according to Dr Bedggood 15

years treating all the common eye

conditions that affect both adults

and children gives him a huge

amount of experience to be able to

help you with your eye problems.

A full eye assessment at Halswell

costs $180, and we can perform

the vast majority of minor

surgeries or procedures here for

eyelid problems, small growths,

laser, macular degeneration and

diabetes states Dr Bedggood.

REVERSE LAYUP: Nic Wenmoth’s double-double for Cashmere

was part of a balanced team performance.

Cashmere in Thompson Trophy final

• By Andrew King

CASHMERE HIGH are

one game away from their

first McDonald’s Thompson

Trophy division one

basketball title. All that

stands in their way is Christ’s

College.

Since grinding out a 77-

52 win over Shirley Boys’

High at home last week to

book their spot in the final,

they’ve been building up to

the 7.30pm game at Cowles

Stadium today.

A win would see them

crowned Canterbury

champs and will give them

a confidence boost heading

into the South Island

tournament in Dunedin

(September 6-9).

Cashmere’s last title was in

2011, when the competition

was not yet known as the

Thompson Trophy.

The key to victory,

according to coach Ben Sheat,

will be shutting down Christ’s

playmakers and sticking to

their game plan.

“The boys are just focused

on going through our

MID-AIR: Cashmere’s Connor McLaughlin rises

above the defence.

processes and sticking to our

rules throughout the game,”

Sheat said.

“Limiting Max de

Geest and Max Darling is

important. However, that is

much easier said than done.

They have some other great

players like Tom Crutchley,

which makes Darling and De

Geest even tougher.”

Last week’s game was tied

30-30 at half-time before

Cashmere pulled away,

scoring 47 points to Shirley’s

22 in the last two quarters.

Nic Wenmoth chipped in

SPORTS

with a 12-point, 10-rebound

double-double, while Connor

McLaughlin contributed 18

points, seven assists and five

rebounds backed up by Mitch

Mahon with 12 points and six

rebounds.

Sheat called the

performance a “balanced

team effort.”

Christ’s beat Rangiora High

last week 105-70 at Cashmere

High.

In the division two final,

Hillmorton High will take

on Papanui High at Cowles

Stadium today at 4pm.

Halswell win

netball title

at primary

tournament

• By Andrew King

HALSWELL SCHOOL won the junior

B netball title at the Primary Sports

Canterbury winter tournament on

Thursday.

More than 1700 pupils making up

171 teams from 87 schools across Canterbury

came together to play netball,

hockey, football and rugby at South

Hagley and English parks.

Halswell beat Paparoa Street School in

the final to lift the title.

Halswell coach Leigh Hurford said it

was a fabulous, well-organised day.

“We were thrilled that all of the hard

work we put into practicing paid off and

we were elated to come away with the

victory.”

Thorrington School came third in

the junior B netball. In other results,

Hillview Christian School were second

in the senior rugby section after being

beaten in the final by Rolleston Primary.

Cashmere Primary and Tai Tapu

School were third equal in the senior

hockey, which was won by St Andrew’s

College.

In the junior hockey, St Martins

School were third. Hoon Hay School

were third in the junior A netball

All schools had to qualify through

their school zone to be eligible for one

of the biggest primary school sporting

events of the year.

The Wedding Singer

heads to Halswell

Group is gearing up to

perform another stage

production.

The group will present

The Wedding Singer based

on the movie of the same

name starring Adam

The show goes back to

1985 – a time when hair

was big, greed was good,

collars were up and a

FLAME FILES

Hot tips to prevent

stove top fires

• By Mark Thomas –

specialist fire investigator

I SEEM to spend

some time every week

complaining about the

number of kitchen fires

we’re going to.

Not that we are moaning

about having to go to

them, but we know the

inconvenience to anyone

who has such a fire. People

who suffer them, regularly

end up being treated for

smoke inhalation after

trying to control what happened.

Last week was quite a

busy one in the kitchen fire

department, and a couple

of the call-outs triggered

messages we all should be

aware of.

Vice-president Tim

Gunther said the musical

promises to get you up

dancing faster than your

dad at a wedding.

He said the drama group

are a small, but passionate

group of south-western

locals who have been performing

for the benefit of

their local community for

more than 50 years.

The cast is made up

of members from places

including Halswell,

Rolleston, Lincoln and Tai

Tapu.

The first was at Breezes

Rd, Aranui, on Thursday

and was a perfect example

of the danger of leaving

something combustible on

a stove top.

In this case, a plastic coffee

grinder was cooked up

because the element it was

sitting on was turned on by

mistake.

I’ve seen bread boards,

The show is to be held

September 14, 15, 16, 21,

22 and 23 at the Halswell

Community Hall, 450

Halswell Rd.

and Restaurant which has

toasters and tea towels all

cause a fire because an

element was mistakenly

activated.

If you persist in storing

these things on the stove

top, it’s almost inevitable

that eventually the obvious

will happen.

They’re not storage areas.

If you’re tempted to use

them as such, then quite

simply, don’t.

The second fire was at

Ferry Rd on Friday where a

pot of burning oil was carried

through the house in

an effort to get it outside.

Inevitably it was dropped

as the flames increased. A

fire on the stove top should

be handled right there. If it

can’t, get out and shut the

door. Don’t spread the fire.

Mixed Two

Emma milburn & JacquElinE morrEn

Breaking news,

delivered to

your pocket.

Visit www.star.kiwi

anytime, anywhere!

Little River Gallery will be presenting works by two artists, Emma Milburn and Jacqueline

Morren in their new exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ from this Saturday September 2nd. They are

bringing together different geographical cultures, using different media and materials,

both with a strong environmental focus from the manmade and natural world. Their work

is fabricated by using old traditional techniques yet with a contemporary edge.

Emma Milburn’s paintings depict elements that are influenced by the natural environment

of remote and isolated South Island wilderness areas and her interaction within this. As a

Wilderness Search Dog handler and Visual Tracker, Emma is acutely tuned in to analyse

detail along with the ‘big picture’.

Colour, shape, shine, shadow, contours,movement and

texture influence Emma’s abstract painting style.

”The juxtaposition between my experiences of wilderness,

and an urban environment of playing and writing music also

bring an awareness of the interaction between space, time

and repetition.”

‘Monowai’ original painting

by Emma Milburn from

the exhibition ‘Mixed Two’

at Little River Gallery from

September 2nd

For Jacqueline Morren this body of work is a new direction.

She sets herself a big challenge to sculpt without training or

access to technical tools. At times this has resulted in her

having to create her own implements, to aid the stretching &

curving of the silver out of one piece, without the use of soldering.

Jacqueline Morren’s fine

silver and Pounamu jug

‘Punctuated Equilibrium’

from the exhibition ‘Mixed

Two’ at Little River Gallery

from September 2nd

“Maker’s marks are left intentionally; I have no inclination towards smooth perfection. I

love discovering the magical combination of metals & Jade until it feels right, usually after a

long process. This enables the wonderful greenstone to come to life, to its fullest potential.”

The artwork is layered with era’s bygone, present and anticipated future innovation.

The exhibition is running from 2nd until 27th September. For more information, please visit www.littlerivergallery.com

Different outlook

and fresh approach

THE Cashmere Club has appointed a

new Club Manager, Donna Hughes.

“After a very thorough recruitment

process I am pleased to advise that the

Board of the Cashmere Club has

approved the appointment of Donna

Hughes as our new General Manager,”

said Pete Winchester, Board Chairman.

“Donna comes to the Club with an

extensive background in hospitality,

with experience in senior management

positions in Customer Services and

most recently at the executive level in

Marketing and Loyalty management.

As far as I am aware this is the first

time we have ever had a woman take up

the role of General Manager of our

club. It will no doubt provide a different

outlook and fresh approach to what we

want to achieve in the future.”

\

Donna said she has been warmly

welcomed by members and staff at

the Cashmere Club and that it is

great to see the diversity of the

services the club already offers its

members, their families and the

community.
