BAN: Scenes like this could be a thing of the past if the city council approves night-time

restrictions on two Huntsbury Hill roads.

Quiet in sight for residents

• By Andrew King

NIGHT-TIME restrictions in

suburban Huntsbury Hill to

curb excessive noise, drug use

and littering have taken another

step towards becoming a reality.

Residents on Vista Pl and

Roystone Way have been besieged

by young drivers who

park up at the scenic spots to

socialise, listen to loud music

and smoke cannabis.

On Friday, the Spreydon-

Cashmere Community Board

recommended to the city council

that a ban on vehicles under

3500kg be put in place on the

two roads between

10pm and 5am. The

ban would not include

vehicles owned by a

resident or a “bona fide

visitor”.

Those caught parking

there could be fined up

to $750, with the ban

enforced by police.

The city council

will discuss the

recommendation on

November 9.

Board chairwoman Karolin

Potter said the unanimous

Karolin Potter

decision was a great step forward

for the residents. “We

don’t want to say

this will definitely go

ahead, but it is looking

really good,” she told

Southern View on

Friday.

City councillors Tim

Scandrett and Phil

Clearwater were not

at the meeting but Ms

Potter said “they are on

board”.

She said it was not about banning

young people from enjoying

the view and listening to music,

but protecting residents from unwanted

disturbances. “We would

like to think there are places

around the hills to park up, listen

to music and enjoy the view,

just where it is not disrupting

residents,” she said.

The proposal comes after

Southern View reported in June

residents were fed up with youths

congregating in vehicles on the

scenic streets at night, playing

loud music, smoking bongs,

shouting and partying.

Two options were considered

by the board: Install the

restrictions, or do nothing.

Consultation on the proposal

was carried out between August

9-25, and 62 people responded

with 85 per cent in support of the

restrictions.

One person did not support

the idea, saying it would only

move the problem to other parts

of the city. Others said it was

long overdue and applauded the

restrictions.

It will cost about $2000 for the

installation of signage and, if

approved, the money will come

from the city council’s traffic

engineering fund, Ms Potter

said.

THE BUREAUCRATIC wheels

turn very slowly in Christchurch,

highlighted by our page 1 article

today.

In June, we revealed Vista Pl and

Roystone Way residents on Huntsbury

Hill are having to put up with

young drivers blasting loud music,

smoking cannabis and urinating

near their properties.

They had been to the police and

the Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board, desperate to get a

solution.

On Friday, the community board

recommended to the city council

that vehicles under 3500kgs are

banned on Vista Pl and Roystone

Way between 10pm and 5am. The

ban would not apply to a resident or

“bona fide visitor”.

The city council will decide on

November 9 if it agrees.

The hold up: Public consultation.

Get the ban in and give the residents

some peace and quiet, I say.

Yacht club on board over park

Local

News

Now

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

THE MT Pleasant Yacht Club is

happy to work with concerned

parties to make Scott Park

better for everyone.

A new working group met

to discuss issues of water and

park access, safety and general

landscaping.

And yacht club immediate

past commodore Tim Prickett

said following the meeting,

everyone was on

the same page.

“Essentially

there were three

thrusts to the

meeting . . .

accessibility of

Darrell

Latham

park, water and

beautification,” he

said.

Those at the recent meeting

included Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

chairwoman Sally Buck and

members Darrell Latham, Tim

Lindley and Jake McLellan. Also

in attendance was Mt Pleasant

Residents’ Association co-ordinator

Jules Lee; Paul Roperfee

of the Christchurch Coastal

Pathway Group; Dr Prickett

and Duncan Cartwright of the

Mt Pleasant Yacht Club; Russell

Mathieson and Allan Taylor of

Canterbury Wind Sports; and

city council staff member Eric

Banks.

Dr Prickett said a majority of

the issues could be dealt with

simply by adding more signage.

“Accessibility is largely to do

with perception rather than

reality, it just needs to be better

signed,” he said.

Although he did agree the

park was “pretty ugly”.

Dr Prickett said there was

currently a lack of city council

funding available but in the

next financial year more would

become free.

“But the sentiment was that

we’re all going in the same

direction,” he said.

The working party was triggered

after Coastal Pathway

Group chairman Scott Babington

raised concerns about public

access to the foreshore near the

Ferrymead Bridge.

As it stands there is no public

access around the south side of

the yacht club’s new boat shed

as it is currently fenced off, he

said.

But Mr Babington could

not attend the meeting as he is

overseas.

Dr Latham agreed and said

overall the meeting had a positive

tone.

“From my perspective everybody

understood the issues. Yes,

there are concerns that we need

to reach agreement on. However,

we are closer together than

a part on the matters of access

PARK:

Accessibility

and

beautification at

Scott Park have

party.

and landscaping raised during

discussion,” Dr Latham said.

He said the park is still in the

early stages of development.

“Going forward we have the

opportunity to make Scott Park

a wonderful area of recreation

for water sport users and as a

gateway experience for coastal

pathway walkers or families

wishing enjoy a picnic in the

park near the water’s edge.”

The community board is looking

to develop a 10-year master

plan for the park’s future.

Mr Banks is going back to the

city council to discuss the landscaping

problems with an urban

planner. The plan is to engage a

landscape architect to work with

the Scott Park working party.

ASHGROVE RESERVE WORK

The Lower Cashmere Residents’

Association is working with

city council parks staff in a

bid to become involved in

the maintenance of Ashgrove

Reserve. The association formed

Friends of the Ashgrove Reserve

to undertake the work. It has

already held a “weeding bee” in

which most of the invasive weeds

at the top of the reserve were

removed and rubbish was cleared.

FOREST OPEN

The Te Oranga Waikura Urban

Forest and Stormwater Basin in

Woolston was opened last week

at a public ceremony attended by

city councillors and members of

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board. The forest

was planted on a site that was

a part of Linwood College. The

earthquake-damaged land off

Ferry Rd was bought by the city

council to use as a storage basin to

reduce the risk of flooding.

GRANT APPROVED

The former Hoon Hay Children’s

Volunteer Library is now

being leased by the Hoon Hay

Community Association. The

group will operate it as a bookable

community space on Hoon

Hay Rd while the city council

investigates the building’s future.

Victim of drink driving shares his

George Cairney’s life was completely changed

in 2008 when he sat in the back of a car with a

driver who had been drinking. The vehicle crashed

into a brick wall at 135km/h. Mr Cairney, 24, told

his sobering story to students from Christchurch

Boys’ High School and the wider community on

Wednesday. Here’s what he told the students

SOUTHERN VIEW

Watch the video at www.star.kiwi

THANK YOU very much for

having me here this evening, I

think I have a lot of important

information that can

either help, if not save,

your lives.

And you may ask me

what I mean?

I may seem like a

normal guy, just a

regular Joe Blogg, but

I’m sure by the end

of my speech, by the

end of my story, you’ll

think very differently.

At the time of my

accident, I was back at

King’s College. I was in seventh

form in Auckland. I was loving

school, absolutely loving it.

I was in the school’s basketball

team. School sports was a

passion for me and I was loving

school. I got As in English, which

was fantastic. All of these things,

all of these passions I loved, all of

these things can be changed by

George Cairney

one decision, one bad decision.

I would like to tell you about

that now.

I was at a party, it

was about a month

before my final exams.

October 1, 2008. I was

with a bunch of friends,

I was at an 18 th party,

and it was just a regular

night.

But I was drunk, this

was my first mistake

because getting drunk

hinders your ability to

make good decisions. It

makes it really hard to

say ‘hey, I don’t want to do that’.

I asked my friend for a ride

home because I was drunk and I

couldn’t drive.

He said he was sober, he said

he hadn’t had anything to drink

– how was I supposed to know

that? Unless you plan it before or

you keep an eye on it the whole

night.

He told me he was sober, this

was not true. He’d had more

than twice the legal limit to

drive.

We hopped in the car. This was

my next mistake, one of

many – I didn’t put on my seat

belt.

It’s so simple, it takes three

seconds and it saves lives. I may

have been in the back left side of

the car but people still die.

Then he started driving very

fast. Extremely fast and very

badly.

Fire rages, homes at risk

sobering story with students

I should’ve said: ‘Stop. Please

pull over, I’m not comfortable,

will you please let me out.’ It’s

simple.

That was the moment that

changed my life forever.

He was rounding a corner too

fast on Remuera Rd in a 50km/h

zone, going twice the speed

limit-plus.

He hit a power pole exactly

where I was seated.

We went through a garage

door and halfway through a

brick wall.

I was in a coma for a month.

When I woke up, I didn’t

know I was there, I didn’t know

what had happened because I

don’t remember this night. I

don’t remember a year and a

half before this night or a year

and a half after this night.

Three years of my life is gone

and I feel like I’m telling stories

about another person.

But these were my mistakes. It

has affected my life hugely.

I have diabetes, epilepsy,

splenectomy – it took my spleen.

These are the scars from

one, two, three, four, five bad

mistakes in one evening.

I even had to have part of my

skull replaced with titanium

plating.

My left leg was partially

replaced with a titanium rod

and behind this metal front is

the part of my brain that was

most damaged.

Sure, I damaged the left

and right lobe but the frontal

lobe is what makes it hard to

behave correctly, behave socially

correctly and manage my own

life.

I can’t plan. I work with six

carers part time, 24/7.

Every single day of my life is

planned by someone else. That

was not my plan when I was

back at high school, this was not

my plan when I was 17 years of

age.

But I made those mistakes.

Partial loss of sight, partial

loss of hearing, partial loss of

smell.

My left eye I can only see

when I look in one direction.

My right eye, I can’t see my

hand when it’s right there.

My left ear is deaf, which is a

big bummer. I only have eight

per cent taste left, which is a

real bummer – I was a big food

person.

Not so much anymore.

All of these things, all of these

injuries, all of this crap in my

life could’ve been prevented by

just thinking before I did those

things.

Before I finish this speech,

I just have a few questions for

you.

How would you think, how

would you feel if you were in my

position?

How would you feel having all

of this happen to you and you

were in the middle of it?

What would you do to stop it

again? And how would you live?

Because every day I get up, I

feel like I have less motivation.

Every day I get up, it’s hard.

There are three things you

have to remember.

Don’t drink and drive. Come

on, it’s not that hard, is it?

Second thing, (when you) hop

into a car, put your seat belt on.

It’s three seconds of your life.

Put your seat belt on, even

if you’re in the back seat. They

save lives. Millions of lives.

And next, if your friend is

driving dangerously, if he’s

driving fast, if he’s driving

drunk – tell him to pull over, tell

him to stop the car.

You shouldn’t be embarrassed

to ask because they should

be the ones embarrassed for

putting your life in danger.

Thank you.

Call for cycleway to new sports hub

• By Emily O’Connell

HALSWELL Community

Project chairwoman Chrys

Horn wants to see a better

cycling route to the new Nga

Puna Wai Sports Hub in

Wigram.

Dr Horn attended the

Halswell Liaison Group meeting

last week, where the request was

made by members of the community.

Residents also discussed

the final 3D designs of the hub

with city council staff.

The first stage of the hub will

see the athletics track up and

running in March. The hockey

turfs, tennis courts, rugby league

fields and several other facilities

will then be opened on the 32ha

site between autumn next year

and 2019.

Dr Horn said the meeting was

positive and a lot of great ideas

were shared.

“They [the designs] look good,

I’m excited. It was nice to be

able to input into some ideas

around how the public might

use that area. Not just seeing it

as a sporting area, but also as a

place people can go walking and

things,” she said.

Dr Horn said there were suggestions

around the creation of

a cycle route to the new hub that

could go through Canterbury

DESIGNS: An artist’s impression of what the Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub’s boulevard would look

like once completed.

Park, Aidanfield and then link

to Hillmorton High School.

“There is a track there which

could be used already but it

would be nice if it was a bit wider

and a bit more intentional,”

she said.

Dr Horn said traffic was already

a big problem in Halswell,

so she would like to see more accessible

bus, walking and cycling

routes into the hub.

“We need to encourage people

to take the forms of transport

which are less common,” she

said.

City council head of transport

Lynette Ellis said stage one of

the hub has been designed for

cycle access with safety in mind.

“It includes a sealed, shared

path connecting the sports hub

to the nearby cycle network on

Templetons Rd. This is a 2.5m

sealed, shared path on the western

side of Templetons Rd which

runs from the shared path on

State Highway 75 to the boundary

of the site,” she said.

Mrs Ellis said an existing

gravel path would also link

to the Little River major cycle

route, which will be sealed and

lit at a later stage.

“The hub has a minimum

of 146 cycle parks, including a

covered cycle park structure,”

Mrs Ellis said.

City council manager of recreational

services David Bailey

said residents at the meeting

also wanted to know what kind

of impact there might be on

traffic along McMahon Dr and

Augustine Dr.

He said other suggestions

included play and shaded areas,

water fountains and some environmentally-friendly

measures.

“City council staff will continue

to work closely with the

community going forward as

work continues on the project,”

he said.

Watch the

YOU DON’T need to leave the

comfort of your living room to

watch the rebuild of Lyttelton’s

iconic Timeball Tower.

Heritage New Zealand and

Hawkins Construction are

sharing costs for a time lapse

camera that captures progress

of the build every 10min from

6.30am to 5.30pm.

“We encourage people to view

the time lapse camera and watch

the rebuild in real time. The tower

rebuild should begin to become

quite noticeable on Lyttelton’s

skyline in the next few weeks,”

Heritage New Zealand general

manager Nick Chin said.

He said it will be a welcome

reminder for locals of the familiar

landmark that has stood at the site

since 1876 but has been missing

since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

The Timeball Tower will be

finished by the end of April. An

internal concrete shell, which will

house the automated timeball

mechanism, is currently being

constructed on site.

part of a very different way of life

at that time.

Many of them were just basic

huts where fishermen could

spend the night while catching

crayfish or fishing on the morning

“The abundant fishing and the

baches. Children grew up fishing,

boating and roaming the cliffs

However, three of them were

grand Edwardian Cave baches,

including the Pilgrim’s Rest,

which was built by Alfred Osborn

(known as the Pilgrim, who

built the original Pilgrim’s Way

track), The Hermitage and Te

Nui Ana.

The baches were often made

from timber from ships passing

through the area.

Before containers, ships

secured their cargo with planks

of wood, and once clear of the

harbour they would throw

this wood overboard creating

“dunnage” that washed up along

the coast.

Concrete foundations remain

from a few of the baches.

The Pilgrim’s Rest had a

camera obscura and the owner

hosted picnic parties attended

by women who would clamber

down the rough track wearing

ankle-length Edwardian dresses.

The Hermitage was built in

1906 from timber salvaged from

Fuller’s Old Theatre and the

Main Exhibition building from

the New Zealand International

Exhibition which was held in

Christchurch from 1906 to

1907. There was a bunk room for

women and the cave was lit with

kerosene lamps.

Te Nui Ana, built in 1903, had

three rooms, including a women’s

bedroom, a men’s bunkroom and

a staircase.

The décor featured a chandelier

and a grand piano.

Principal’s Report

Kia ora koutou. Talofa.

Kia Orana. Malo e

lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa

atu. Namaste and

Kumusta. Greetings to

our Community.

The content of this

page shows the busy

life of a NZ secondary

school. Education is

about seeing the whole person and how these

developmentally positive experiences enrich our

students’ understanding of whom they are and

broaden their outlook. They nurture students’

classroom focus by contextualising their learning

and sowing the seeds of positive ambition.

Linwood College believes in a ‘pathwayed

curriculum’. This means the school, students and

families knowing:

1. students’ past learning and skills as they come

into LC from our partner primary schools and

building on these successes

2. how the learning at LC connects to what the

students want to do when they leave school.

“What are my post-school pathways and how

does my LC learning help me to achieve these

pathways?”

In this way learning is meaningful to the individual

and strengths-based.

Coast to Coast Update

Article by The Press’ Robert van Royen

– Sept, 2017 (paraphrased)

Six Linwood College pupils are competing in the

Tough Mudder event alongside Richie McCaw

in Auckland in November, thanks to iSport

Foundation and Coast-to-Coast Rangers.

Linwood College’s Mapu Uasi, Moahengi

Ngauamo, Juilan Elia-Lui, Tupito Saofai and

Kyle Amer couldn't contain their excitement

when they heard the news that they would

be competing. They will all do the 20km mud

and obstacle course, which is designed to test

physical strength, stamina and mental grit.

Connected to these student pathways are the

national development of Kāhui Ako-Communities

of Learning. Education, unfortunately, can have

its share of short-term fads, but Kāhui Ako are

not one of them. In fact, effective schools and

communities have taking this approach for

decades. Kāhui Ako are schools collaborating

to ensure that the student is at the centre of all

activity, not just in the individual school that they

are in at the time, but as students progress in

education from early childhood centres through

their schooling to tertiary and the workplace.

Linwood College is in two Kāhui Ako. Tamai is

the schools of Bamford, Bromley, Linwood Ave,

Linwood College, Linwood North, Tamariki,

and Te Waka Unua. Aupaki is Heathcote Valley,

Linwood College, Lyttelton, Our Lady Star of

the Sea, Mt Pleasant, Redcliffs and Sumner.

One practical outcome already of our Kāhui Ako

has been a specific focus on enrichment with

students from our schools getting together

for very successful eight week enrichment

programmes in Maths, Debating, Pasifika and

with Technology to come.

Finally, schools can be complicated places. If

for any reason you would like to talk to me about

anything please contact the office so we can

arrange this. My door is open.

Ngamihinui – best wishes,

Richard Edmundson - Tumuaki (Principal)

McCaw's Foundation contacted Jess De Bont,

who is currently training the pupils for next year's

Coast-to-Coast and suggested the Tough Mudder

event to her.

"It's an amazing

opportunity –

once in a life time

stuff," she said.

“Auckland is a

really good lead

up for the Coastto-Coast,”

said

Jess De Bont.

Planting at Charlesworth Reserve

Linwood College’s Year 7 & 8 students did an awesome job during a day of

planting at Charlesworth Reserve according to Karla Guerin, the Kiwi Can

Coordinator from the Graeme Dingle Foundation.

Karla said that the planting day (late last term) was very hot and windy but

the students all persevered and gave it their best. She said that it was great

to see everyone fully engaged and work alongside each other with great

teamwork.

Cultural Festival

NZ Army Visit

College's Car Club

Linwood College students’ Car Club had a great

time at Ara Institute of Canterbury over Term 3,

learning about all things cars. Under the careful

guidance of Tutor Bernie Blanken, students

learnt how to change tyres, jump-start flat

batteries, strip down and rebuild a small fourstroke

engine, disassemble and reassemble a

gearbox as well as automotive welding.

Students thanked Bernie by buying him a big box

of chocolates at the end of the course.

Drama Review

Year 10’s mini production is going to

be #fairestofthemall. This story is

an adaption of Snow White with an

improvised and modern twist.

Masking Up

Part of the Year 9 Drama curriculum is to focus

on Drama technologies, so last term students

worked on Mask Making.

This is an important technology which has

links to Greek Theatre and Commedia

Del'Arte, both types of Drama which the

students will be researching when they get to

their NCEA studies.

'The Change Over' Review

As a Christchurch resident from the Eastern suburbs, the

movie ‘The Changeover’ is certainly well worth watching,

not just for its plot but for the visually striking scenes of

post-quake Christchurch. Aerial views show the lead

character’s home surrounded by a sea of vacant lots and

low-lying swampy stretches. Looking across to the city,

with randomly plonked containers and road works, these

scenes also tell part of our story. Linwood College is listed

on the credits as many of our students were acting extras.

Linwood College presented three cultural

‘Do it, do it’ siva.

The final item was

a kapa haka and

MICHAEL HANN likes

fixing things.

The 18-year-old always

has. His earliest memory

is helping his dad, Jody,

put an electric motor on

a tricycle. “When I see a

problem, I like to think of

ways to fix or improve it,”

he said.

He saw a problem

he could solve when

medication and hearing

equipment was stolen from

a North New Brighton

home during the tsunami

evacuation after the

Kaikoura earthquake last

November.

“Seeing the looting when

the earthquake happened

inspired me to create this

product,” he said.

So he designed a security

system to be deployed in a

natural disaster when the

power goes out, and now

he’s a finalist in the ASB

Bright Sparks competition.

It’s called TEMS, which

Michael said stands for

“temporary emergency

monitoring system”.

The invention acts

as a battery charger for

devices and a place to keep

belongings locked inside

during a disaster.

It also has an alarm to

keep houses safe when

evacuated. It is triggered

by the rocking caused by

an earthquake and lights

up an exit path.

Michael’s now working

on connecting TEMS to

an app which would send a

text if someone breaks in.

“I really want to get it

connected up to a phone

network so it sends out

a text or notification

through an app,” he

said. Michael will fly to

Auckland on November 7

to attend the Bright Sparks

he said. With him will

inherited the “fix it” gene.

Mr Hann’s job involves

repairing electronics for

the police.

“He doesn’t help me

that much on my projects

anymore,” Michael said.

He spends his free time

on Trade Me, buying

broken items to upgrade.

“Sometimes it’s not even

Clinic offers easy

solution to varicose veins

If varicose veins are a problem for you, the

dedicated, professional team at Transform

Clinic in Mandeville Street Riccarton can

provide the perfect solution.

Firstly, they will give you a free

assessment of your veins, and then suggest

the appropriate method of treatment,

depending on the condition of the veins.

There are two methods available –

endo-venous laser treatment, which is

used for both smaller and larger veins,

and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy.

Both are easy and straightforward, and

you can be fully active immediately

afterwards, without needing to take any

time off work, or curtail your normal

activities. The only requirement is for you

to wear special stockings for two weeks

following treatment, and daily walking is

recommended.

Both these treatments give long-term

relief from the pain and discomfort of

varicose veins, and as Transform Clinic’s

Jenny Little points out, they have become

the treatment method of today, with

surgical removal of varicose veins now

considered obsolete.

Jenny advises having treatment as early

as possible when varicose veins start to

appear, as left untreated they may lead to

venous ulcers and venous eczema, although

if these have developed, Transform Clinic

can treat them as well.

Transform Clinic has an affiliation

with health provider Southern Cross and

relationships with several other health

insurance companies, which means you are

usually covered for treatment, providing it

is included in your policy.

Transform Clinic also offers a full range

of appearance medicine options, including

skin rejuvenation and skin-tightening

treatments designed to improve skin quality

and enhance self-esteem. They remove

superficial veins on the legs and face, and

also provide mole mapping, mole removal

and primary skin cancer removal. Their

website, www.transformclinic.co.nz, has

information on all the various treatments

available.

“We are a ‘one-stop shop’ for all cosmetic

medicine treatments,” says Jenny.

Transform Clinic is discreetly located

at 52a Mandeville Street. Opening hours

are Monday to Friday from 8.30am, with

late nights on Tuesday and Thursday,

and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. Phone

343-2880 to enquire about treatments or

make an appointment.

3 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 1 toilet | 1 living room | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing ID ST7254

Exciting times lie ahead for our owner

meaning this much-loved home will not be

easy to let go, as this is something special.

The result of refurbishment has created

a gorgeous fresh and light ambience

which beautifully enhances the light-filled

floorplan which provides total ease of

living. With the living spaces taking every

advantage of the north-facing position,

summer will almost see you certainly

dining outside more often than in.

Despite being tucked away from the

hustle and bustle, you are mere minutes

from both Fendalton & Elmwood Villages.

Blessed by zoning for superb schools

Fendalton Primary, Cobham & Heaton

Intermediates, Burnside High School,

CBHS and CGHS (2018), its centrality and

proximity to services and amenities will

forever underpin its core value.

Entertainers kitchen is chic and

practical with modern conveniences. 3

double bedrooms and a stunning family

sized bathroom will suit your families’

requirements. Outdoors the idyllic easy

kept landscaped grounds just adds to the

appeal of the home.

This gorgeous home will suit a myriad of

buyers and given the vendors motivation

we recommend you be one of the first to

inspect.

LUCKY? Perhaps more pure talent than luck!

Lana Doublet says she is ‘over the moon’ aer

claiming the NZ Country Music Awards

Songwriter of the Year for the 3rd consecutive

year.

“e song that won my recent title is called

'Together Apart' - inspired aer watching an

Attitude Live documentary of the same name

that told a beautifully sad story about how a

family lived with the struggle of dementia.”

Taking place in Rotorua on Saturday 14th

regional Country Music competitions.

“I've always had a love of music and

able to combine the two,” said Lana. “I have

always been very stage-shy, and still get

extremely nervous, so thankful for the

constant support and encouragement from

family and friends telling me 'I can'.”

And ‘she has’. Over the past few years Lana

has claimed numerous awards, including
