Mega season ahead for yacht club

HELPING HAND: Ferrymead Mitre 10 Mega’s Tony Franc with the new mainsails.

• By Sarla Donovan

THE RAIN cleared to sunny

skies and warm north-east

winds, perfect conditions for

Christchurch Yacht Club’s

season opener on Saturday

afternoon.

The formal launch got under

way at noon with an update on

recent developments at the club,

the raising of the club flag, a

glass of champagne and a light

lunch.

Competition followed at 1pm

with about 40 boats racing on

the day.

Six bright orange mainsail sets

donated by Ferrymead Mitre 10

Mega could be spied bobbing out

on the water.

The sails on the club’s optimist

boats, used for learn to sail

classes, were old and worn out so

Mitre 10 offered to replace them,

said club commodore Richard

Ineson.

“These new ones are nice and

bright, good for training. When

the boats go out, they’re easy to

distinguish.”

Numbers at the opening event

were excellent, he said.

After a fall-off in membership

following the earthquakes,

numbers had stabilised and were

now in a growth pattern.

Learn to sail classes start next

week and were full.

The recent success of Team

New Zealand’s campaign had

helped to bring the sport of

yachting back to the forefront.

SOLUTIONS TO ongoing

problems at the Riccarton bus

lounge will drag on for some time

yet.

The lounge, on the corner of

Riccarton Rd and Division St, has

been plagued with youth issues

since it opened in December 2015.

It was revealed last week that

a number of recommendations

from a working party were to be

discussed at the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

meeting on Tuesday night –

including more police presence in

the area.

The working party consisting

of board members, business and

landowners, police, community

groups and residents’ association

representatives have made recommendations,

which the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board received at its meeting last

week.

Three recommendations were

approved by the community

board and will go to the city

council for further discussion.

These are an additional police

presence, a bylaw which would

allow arrests and instant fines to be

issued and continued assistance for

business owners when removing

graffiti. •Turn to page 5

WHAT AN election it’s going to be

on Saturday night.

The best and potentially the closest

in many years, and one which

will shape the country’s future for

sometime.

Star Media, publisher of the

Southern View, will be following

the election on our website www.

star.kiwi and we’ll have reporters

out on the street and bringing

you latest updates through the

afternoon and into the night.

The Star on Thursday will also

have an in-depth election preview.

The polls clearly show people

have shifted to voting for either National

and Labour and this could

spell doom for many smaller party

politicians who have made it into

Parliament on the back of MMP.

Indications are voter turnout

will be high and which ever party

mobilises its supporters best on

Saturday will win.

Lights ease congestion

Fashion

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NEW TRAFFIC lights Halswell Junction Rd have

been given the thumbs up by

Prebbleton residents who now

say getting into work is quicker.

The signals designed to ease

the congestion at the Halswell

Junction and Springs Rds

roundabout were switched on

last Thursday morning.

Resident Karen Webb said the

lights have cut down her commute

by about half the time.

“It is certainly an improvement

Another Prebbleton resident

A Prebbleton resident herself,

Ms Wright said she left work

15min later than usual and got

Until now traffic has been

backed up from the roundabout

to close to the Prebbleton shops.

Prebbleton Community Association

Committee chairman

Peter Hunter said anything to

improve traffic time through the

intersection is a bonus.

The $150,000 project was

designed to reduce delays for

people and bus passengers

on Springs Rd heading to

Christchurch by about 8min,

while the Christchurch Southern

Motorway Stage 2 is under

construction.

Often traffic is backed up for

more than 2km while people

THE HISTORY of Calder Green

Reserve is now on display for all

to see.

A new sign explaining the significance

of the lower Heathcote

reserve was unveiled recently.

Formerly known as ‘Devils

Elbow,’ Calder Green Reserve is

a salt marsh and riparian area

lying between Ferry and Tunnel

Rds.

Forest and Bird maintains the

area with input from the city

council and community groups.

Heathcote ward city councillor

Sara Templeton was at the

official opening of the project.

Her daughter has been

involved through her local

guide group, which has planted

swathes of ngaio over the past

few years.

She complimented Forest and

Bird on the work done so far.

“I’m looking forward to all

the groups working together on

a range of challenges including

educating dog owners and the

wider public about the native

wildlife present in the area and

how to protect it.”

Mick Ingram the volunteer

manager of the Calder Green

Reserve project is designing

habitat to suit all the wildlife

of the area and has a particular

He’s hopeful that as people

visit the reserve and learn more

about the area, “they will come

to love its quiet serenity as I do.”

“The hope is more people will

become kaitiaki (caretakers) of

this stretch of river and help its

wildlife thrive into the future,”

Mr Ingram said.

The teen said seeing the

to keep chasing her creative

dreams.

“Now is the moment we’ve been

waiting for. It’s time. This is our

opportunity to build a better, fairer

future for New Zealand. To fix our

healthcare, grow our economy,

respect our environment and to look

after our towns as much as our cities.

It’s time to change things for the

better. I’m ready. We’re ready.”

Jacinda Ardern, Labour Leader

Ruth

Dyson

for Port Hills

As your local Member of Parliament, I listen to

people, work hard and get things done. We need

affordable housing, better mental health services

and truly swimmable rivers and lakes. I want to

be part of a Labour-led government that delivers

these things for all New Zealanders.

Don’t fight fire unless

you’re sure to succeed

ashion

• By Mark Thomas – specialist fire

investigator

I WENT to the fire on Clifton

Hill, in Sumner, which recently

destroyed most of a home.

There were a few things there

Gardening

that are worth mentioning.

Firstly, the occupants were in

an unfamiliar house and once

smoke began to restrict visibility

it was fortunate that one of the

group had familiarised himself

with the route to the back door

and was able to herd most of his

family in the right direction.

Secondly, and knowing hu-

otoring

man nature, understandably, the

group leader tried to put the fire

out.

It was too advanced at this

stage and all he managed was to

receive very painful burns.

He only evacuated the house

when the smoke was too thick to

breathe.

He very nearly didn’t make it.

asty Bites

I was asked later by media how

the fire grew so large so quickly.

There was nothing unusual

about the fire growth here.

GUTTED: This three-storey house will have to be demolished

after a fire ripped through it. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

Modern furniture, made

of plastics, foams and nylon,

provides a huge reserve of fuel,

allowing much faster fire growth

than was normal 50 years ago.

Using the word fuel is very

appropriate because all of those

materials originate in oil. And

burn accordingly.

Anywhere you stay, home, motel,

cabin or hotel room, ensure

there is smoke detection.

If there’s heavy smoke the

cleanest air will be at the lowest

point.

Get down, get low and get out.

Don’t try to fight the fire unless

you’re absolutely sure you will

succeed.

Get out, get your family out,

shut doors as you leave and

phone 111 from a safe place.

SUPERSTAR: Congratulations to Pieta, Kip McGrath

Barrington’s star student for August. Said owner and teacher

Ashleigh Probert: “It is always such a pleasure to tutor Pieta

at Kip McGrath. She unfailingly arrives with a smile and a

positive attitude. She always asks for help when necessary

which means she achieves the very best outcome each

week. Pieta is making good progress and will undoubtedly

succeed in the future.”

WE ALL know that

Halswell, towns and suburbs around

Christchurch’s west will keep growing.

So, we have to work out how to get people

from where they live to where they work.

I’ve recently done some counting at

the Lincoln Rd and Whiteleigh Ave

intersection in the morning rush hour.

People on bicycles make up nine per cent

of the traffic entering Addington village,

Gardening commutes. Doubling the frequency of the

and 11 per cent are on the bus. The rest of buses from 15 minutes to seven to eight

us are in cars, and 80 per cent have just

the driver.

There are two ways of approaching this

problem. First, the big solution. Forget

the new motorway; people I know in

Rolleston are eagerly awaiting it so they

can zoom

otoring

into the central city, so the motorway

won’t help. How about light rail

would enhance their community.

Alternatively, there could be lots of little

solutions. Did you know that secondary

school principals will no longer take

out of zone students? This will cut down

the hauling that happens every school

day. Then, there is continuing to grow

the city’s cycleway network, and e-bikes

may get to be really important for longer

minutes would help too, but this starts to

look like a convoy.

What about car sharing? Sadly, people

these days often don’t know their neighbours

so they are hardly likely to share

a car with a person living blocks away.

Applying a levy on sole occupancy cars

at rush hour might encourage this sort of

chumminess, but does city council have

the political will?

So, we are left with politically difficult

alternatives. Pay for light rail, or charge

single occupancy vehicles. Personally, I

Spreydon fighter takes out

national title, memorial belt

• By Andrew King

SUNNY TEKI-CLARK from

Bells Boxing Gym was crowned

New Zealand champion in the

under-81kg elite category last

week and took home The George

Bush Memorial belt.

The New Zealand Boxing

Championships were held in

Rotorua from Monday to Friday

last week and attracted the best

the country had to offer.

Teki-Clark, who fights out of

the Spreydon club, said he was

pleased with his win, but said

there is always room for improvement.

“You can always improve, I

could have kept my hands up in

the third round. It’s great to be

able to put on the red and black

and fight for Canterbury,” he

said.

Woolston Boxing Club’s Hamuera

Tainui received a silver

medal in the under-57kg category

in an all-Canterbury affair

against Daniel Meehan, 14, of the

Smiling Tigers Boxing Club.

It was a split decision loss for

Tainui​who landed some great

shots, according to his coach and

Canterbury Boxing Association

team manager Holly Sullivan.

“He has a few things to work on

but great first time at nationals

against a tough competitor,” she

said. Tainui​ said he was pretty

sore after the bout.

“I left everything out there so I

feel good,” he said.

Sullivan said it was one of the

“greenest” teams they have taken

to the national championships, in

spite of being awarded the Malcolm

Treston Shield for the most

wins at the competition.

The game is an annual fixture

A school spokesperson said

Cashmere High seniors

too strong in final hit-out

there was “more pre-match chat

and hype than an All Blacks

too strong for their departing

“It was great to see quite a few

for both teams.

“Well done to all players

Firstly crumb the eggplant. Dip

into seasoned egg, then roll into

the breadcrumbs and parsley

combined in another bowl. Set

Directions

Season schnitzel with salt

and pepper and lay on a work

surface. Arrange two slices of

mozzarella on one half of each

schnitzel and top each with a

heaped teaspoon of pesto.

Fold the empty side of each

schnitzel over to cover the filling

and secure by threading

two toothpicks through each

schnitzel parcel. Heat a non-stick

frying pan, add a film of oil and

place schnitzel parcels in the

pan. Cook over a medium heat

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times, new

research has shown that neurons can grow

back with the right conditions and that a

special extract of Gingko Biloba (EGb-761

or TEBONIN) has been clinically found to

assist in this. The implications for stroke

recovery are obvious, but researchers also

know many of us suffer from undetected

“micro-strokes” that over a period of time

slowly reduce our cognitive function.

TEBONIN is prescribed worldwide as a

natural supportive agent for a healthy brain

and cognitive function. It supports healthy

mental performance, concentration, focus,

alertness, motor function and to help

with many conditions including tinnitus

(ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo

and normal balance. TEBONIN improves

TEBONIN is the No 1 Ginkgo Biloba extract in the World with more than 8 million tablets

being consumed every day. It is also the most researched herbal extract with more than 60

controlled clinical studies & over 400 scientific studies. It has been shown to have excellent

efficacy, safety & tolerability. Millions of consumers have trusted TEBONIN for over 30

ONLY GO OMEGA-PC retains the natural Phospholipids that have been shown to be so beneficial for Good

Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL!

Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally

contain Omega-3 in a triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process. GO OMEGA-PC is produced using a new more natural cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. Studies show GO OMEGA-PC offers superior absorption with

increased omega-3 fatty acids in organs giving the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC OFFERS:

• Superior absorption of vital Omega-3, as

shown in research

• Advanced new cold extraction better

preserves the natural nutrient profile

Fish oil can help reduce inflammation

by providing essential fatty acids required

by the body to heal itself and maintain

good health. Until now most fish oil

only contained omega-3 fatty acids in

triglyceride form. Fish, however, naturally

contain omega-3 in triglyceride and

phospholipid form but until recently the

phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC sets new

standards in fish oil as it contains

omega-3 attached to both triglycerides

and phospholipids. Studies have shown

GO-Advanced Omega-PC to be far better

absorbed, leading to increased levels of

vital omega-3 fatty acids in the organs

through giving the potential for more

health benefits.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC is produced

from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish

using a new advanced and more natural

cold extraction process that better preserves

the natural nutrient profile found in fish. It

is manufactured to high GMP standards

and is molecularly distilled to remove any

containments, toxins and heavy metals.

Further info on this revolutionary new

fish oil and its benefits is available from

Kids love CASPA!

A child who’s ‘a

little different’

Children who are just ‘a little different’ – perhaps they’re

clumsy, have difficulty writing or tying shoelaces, or

prone to ‘meltdowns’, and struggle to fit in.

To interpret and function in the world

we need to accurately process information

from our environment.

Some children’s nervous systems

may receive, sort and use information

inaccurately (sensory processing) causing

them to either under or over reaction to

a sensation, or actively seek or avoid a

sensation.

This may cause distress for the

child, family and teachers,

as coping with everyday

experiences like

noisy classrooms,

the feel of fabric,

or moving in a

coordinated way

may present huge

challenges. It can

influence behaviour

and interfere with

learning, doing

everyday activities or

simply fitting in.

No child is the

same, each have

their own individual

difficulties.

Therapy Professionals Therapists

may be able to help improve the life

of these children and those around

them. Contact us at 3775280 or

www.therapyprofessionals.co.nz.

CASPA (Creative After School

Programmed Activities) incorporating

PAPA JACKS offers children the

opportunity to be creative, make new

friends and try new experiences all within a

safe, nurturing environment. CASPA offers

working parents an affordable after school

and school holiday programme that their

kids just love!

CASPA attributes its success to the

variety of activities on offer as well as the

convenience and affordability for parents.

CASPA kids enjoy an exciting range of

activities including sports, music, games,

drama, arts and craft as well as fun trips.

Previous themes and activities have included

a Karaoke Dance Party, CASPA Fear Factor,

Healthy Art, Out of Africa and hundreds of

other amazing themes/activities!

CASPA parents enjoy peace of mind,

knowing their kids are safe and enjoying

the benefits of a quality after school

programme. Some parents and caregivers

also enjoy government subsidies for

CASPA. CASPA is Child Youth and Family

approved for the OSCAR Subsidy and in

some circumstances, the full CASPA fee

will be covered by the subsidy.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

Magical moments in music

LOCAL entertainers Tony Gregory-Hunt and Brian Skinner

are amongst the stellar lineup of performers taking part in a

special fund raising show at the Hornby WMC next Saturday

30th September.

Presented by the Rotary Club of Avonhead, ‘Another Great

Variety Tribute Show’ supports Polio Plus. Rotary, along with

its partners, has reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent

worldwide since the international organisation’s first project

to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.

A stunning programme is taking shape for next Saturday’s

charity show featuring Kevin Kearns (John Rowles); Tony

Gregory-Hunt (Roy Orbison); Brian Skinner (Elvis); Barry

Cro (Neil Diamond); George Tanner (Barry Gibb); Chrissi

Williams (Patsy Cline) and Ray Harris (e Shadows).

Expert backing will be provided by Neville Wilkins & the

Viscounts with special guest band e Pistons.

Tickets are $15 on sale now at the Hornby WMC office,

Carmen Road, phone 349 9026.
