Tsunami traffic chaos

Many would not

have escaped

if big wave hit

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE FIRST big test of tsunami

evacuation along the New

Brighton coastline has failed.

Hundreds of residents were

stuck in long queues trying to

get across bridges that cross the

Avon River to get inland after

the big quake struck just after

midnight on Sunday.

The 7.5 magnitude quake was

upgraded yesterday to a 7.8.

They said the traffic was chaos.

Traffic control was poor, and

they fear what would now happen

if a tsunami did strike.

They say there was confusion

over tsunami warnings on radio

and online.

Residents have contacted

Mayor Lianne Dalziel to air their

anger and concerns over the

difficulty in evacuating from the

coastal areas.

Ms Dalziel said coastal communities

needed to devise their

own evacuation plans, with city

council support.

“We need to test not just the

sirens, but also the plans: How

we make sure deaf people can

be alerted or vulnerable people

assisted. There is much to be

done. And I want us to learn as

much from this experience as we

possibly can,” she said.

Civil Defence was not available

to talk to The Star yesterday

about the shambles in the early

hours of Monday morning.

A spokesman said they too

busy with the relief effort in

Kaikoura.

But city council customer and

community general manager

Mary Richardson said she

anticipated the traffic problems

during the evacuation would

be part of a review of what had

happened, although the terms

of the review had not yet been set.

Marine Pde resident Jason Mill

was angry about how the evacuation

had been managed, and said

it left people in a more vulnerable

position, trapped in their cars on

bridges and by the estuary, than

they would have been if they

stayed home.

“Civil Defence took the worst

possible scenario action, way too

late, and left us in a really vulnerable

position,” he said.

He said there was no clear

communication about where to

go or what was happening, even

after the sirens sounded.

“I was down on the street

with elderly neighbours in their

nightgowns coming and saying

what do I do, what do I do,” he

said.

Amanda White said it took her

family 40min to drive 2km from

Leaver Tce in North New Brighton

to the QEII Drive roundabout

after the sirens sounded, because

the roads were so chaotic.

There was nobody directing

traffic and there were people

driving on the other side of

the road. Emergency vehicles

couldn’t get through because

people were blocking the roundabouts,”

she said.

Southshore resident Bill

Simpson said it took him 40min

to get from his Rocking Horse

Rd home to Bridge St 3.4km

away after the sirens sounded, a

journey which usually took about

five minutes.

He was concerned Southshore

residents would not have been

able to get out in time if a tsunami

had hit. •Turn to page 7 Juliet Dickson Bill Simpson Amanda White

Inside

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

I THOUGHT I’d been woken by

firecrackers going off somewhere

in the neighbourhood just after

midnight on Sunday.

“Who’d be letting off crackers

this time of the night,” I

remember thinking in my semiconscious

mind, as I started to

wake from a deep sleep.

Then I realised the sharp small

cracking sounds were coming

from the house – as it responded

to the immense energy released

by the quake.

Fairly quickly, I was fully

awake and aware I wasn’t dreaming,

the house was swaying like a

pendulum. And it was an eerily

odd feeling quake.

So like many Cantabrians it

was a case of grabbing the cellphone,

car keys and out the door,

just in case.

But for thousands living along

the coast it was a nightmare,

they are in tsunami territory.

We reveal today on page 1 the

congestion and delays many had

getting inland, and that is a real

concern.

And on pages 8-9, assistant

editor Shelley Robinson gives a

first person account of having to

get out and get to high ground.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the first performance by

the Canterbury Repertory Theatre Society in a

production of Milestones on November 15, 1959.

On November 17, 1895, Mark Twain (Samuel L.

Clemens) visits. He described Christchurch as

a town where half the people rode bicycles and

the other half were kept busy dodging them. On

November 18, 1874, the Addington saleyards were

opened. On November 18, 1947, the Ballantynes

department store was destroyed by fire. Forty-one

lives were lost in New Zealand’s worst fire tragedy.

The fire led to drastic revisions of fire safety codes

throughout the country.

More eating out

Another

restaurant

hits the city

• By Annabelle Dick

FROM SELLING transistor

radios at the market to

cooking for Prime Minister

John Key, Nattachai

Changrattanachaichok has

come a long way.

Now the Thai Chef owner,

known as Chang, is scheduled

to open his eatery on Riccarton

Rd today.

Chang also runs franchises

in Auckland, Whangarei, New

Plymouth, Napier and Wellington.

This is his first South Island

restaurant and also his biggest,

with a capacity of 200 people.

It’s one of several new

restaurants setting up shop in

Christchurch, with Carl’s Jr

opening a second branch earlier

this year and acclaimed Malaysian

restaurant Madam Woo

confirming an eatery for the city

centre next February.

“I see growth in Christchurch

and I think the city has been

missing good Thai restaurants

since the earthquakes. We’ve

been aiming to open a restaurant

in Christchurch for a long

time,” he said.

Chang moved from Bangkok

to Napier in the late 1990s to

start his own restaurant.

But after his Thai currency

was converted, he only had

$600 New Zealand dollars to his

name.

Chang then took to the local

markets to sell miniature radios

and watches to fund his dream.

“I only had limited resources

and that’s all I could come up

with,” he said.

When he had enough money,

Thai Chef was born and he

bought a caravan to sell his food

at markets in 2000.

He also parked his truck

outside his house, but the local

council kept shutting him down

for running his food business

on the street-side.

“A lot of my neighbours supported

me and signed a petition

and the council saw how many

people were backing me so they

gave me special consideration,”

he said.

He did that for 18 months

until he had enough money

to open his first restaurant in

Napier.

TASTE EXPLOSION: Carl’s Jr and Madam Woo (below).

Thai Chef’s success boomed

and Chang opened a restaurant

in the small Northland town

Mangonui soon after.

“I had a loyal customer who

was retiring up north and he

said, ‘hey, I need your food

here!,’ and I said, ‘no, that’s too

far I’m not going there’,”

Chang eventually gave in and

set up a second Thai Chef restaurant.

Sixteen years later, he

now has six restaurants up and

down the country.

Thai Chef is based at the

former Running Bull site at 1

Riccarton Rd.

In Brief

LINCOLN UNI JOBS AT RISK

Lincoln University has

foreshadowed job losses in its Te

Waihora and Telford campuses,

with administration positions

particularly vulnerable. Senior

managers at the cash-strapped

university have issued a series of

change proposals to improve the

financial performance of their

areas. Some staffing reductions

could arise through retirements,

natural attrition, and the

completion of fixed-term contracts.

Consultation with affected staff

and the Tertiary Education Union

will take place over the next

month.

RAPAKI RD PARKING MAY GO

Finding a place to park in order to

use the popular Port Hills Rapaki

Track may be more difficult.

The city council is investigating

putting in yellow no stopping lines

for most of Rapaki Rd and part

of Montgomery Tce. Residents

support the move, saying track

users parking on the road made it

difficult and dangerous. The plan

is out for public consultation and

closes on Wednesday.

PARK UPGRADE

A $3 million planned upgrade of

South New Brighton Park could see

an eroding estuary edge protected

and the crumbling boardwalk

removed. A city council report

will go to the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board on December

5 for its recommendations.

But residents said the budget

is insufficient when compared

to the $25 million spent on the

Christchurch Coastal Pathway

from Ferrymead to Sumner. They

are lobbying city council for equal

funding.

HOME OWNERSHIP RATES

Data released by the city council

recently showed Riccarton has

a 43.9 per cent home ownership

rate, above the Central Ward at 32

per cent and below Linwood at 55

per cent. Halswell has the highest

home ownership rate in the city at

81.3 per cent, beating Cashmere

at 78 per cent and Harewood at 77

per cent.

EQC should pay for accommodation

Woods says

case by case

approach is

‘unacceptable’

• By Tom Doudney

THE EARTHQUAKE

Commission’s ‘case by case’

approach to deciding whether it

will cover accommodation costs

for residents forced out of their

homes by remedial repair work

has been labelled unacceptable.

Some homeowners who have

had to move out of their home

to have shoddy

earthquake

repair work

redone have had

to pay their own

accommodation

costs.

Private insurers

will only pay accommodation

costs for initial repairs and

have referred home owners to

the Earthquake Commission

when work needed to be

redone. However, EQC has only

promised to consider covering

accommodation costs on a case

by case basis.

Labour’s Canterbury issues

spokeswoman Megan Woods

(left) said with more than 10,000

people having put in remedial

repair requests, EQC’s stance

was unacceptable and it needed

to take responsibility.

“People are having to move

out of their homes to get their

homes re-repaired and we have

Government agencies ducking

who is going to pay for their

accommodation,” Ms Woods

said.

“THese people are having to

move out of their homes through

no fault of their own and we

cannot realistically think that

the thousands of people who

have to go through the EQC

re-repair programme are all

NOT ON:

Homeowners

who have to

move out of

their homes

while shoddy

earthquake

repair jobs are

redone may find

they have to pay

for their own

accommodation.

going to be able to pay their

mortgage and pay for alternative

accommodation.”

EQC general manager

customer and claims Trish Keith

said the majority of remedial

repairs could be carried out

without people having to move

out of their homes.

“In some cases the Earthquake

Commission may make

payments for temporary

accommodation at its

discretion,” she said.

Ms Woods said EQC didn’t

appear to have any specific

criteria for how it decided on

whether to cover these costs.

She also said EQC had

changed its stance on the issue

after initially leading some

claimants to believe it would pick

up the costs.

Ms Keith said EQC had been

reviewing its approach to ensure

it was acting consistently.

“We regret that our approach

may not have been clearly

communicated to customers,

which may have led to some

confusion,” she said.

Ms Woods said a number

of people had approached her

office and other MPs after EQC

refused to cover their repairs.

THe matter was raised

yesterday at a financial and

expenditure select committee

meeting to discuss a petition,

presented by insurance lawyer

Duncan Webb, calling for a

royal commission of inquiry

into shoddy earthquake repairs.

Both Ms Woods and EQC board

chairman Maartin Wevers were

in attendance.

Relief in sight for build

• By Bridget Rutherford

HOPE: Work on Bill McDaniel’s New Brighton home has stalled.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

THERE MAY be relief in sight

for an elderly man who has been

waiting more than a year for

progress on his earthquakedamaged

home.

Bill McDaniel, 83, has been

living at his daughter’s New

Brighton house while he waits for

his earthquake-damaged Sinclair

St home to be rebuilt.

The Star reported last week that

Platinum Homes Christchurch

and Mass Construction began

rebuilding his home in August

last year. However, work had since

stalled.

Mr McDaniel was originally

getting his accommodation and

storage costs covered by insurance,

however, that ceased in

June.

Mass Construction managing

director Jason Strange told The

Star last week it was looking at

handing the home over this week.

However, that has not happened.

But since his story was published,

the companies involved

have organised meetings with the

family to discuss what happened.

A meeting was held on Tuesday

with representatives from the

insurance companies and builders

involved, and Mr Strange

planned to travel to Christchurch

personally to meet with the Mr

McDaniel tomorrow.

The community has also rallied

in support.

Nine people have offered to take

an elderly man to visit his wife

each day to save him from paying

taxi fares.

He spends $40 most days taxiing

to visit his wife Paula, who

has motor neuron disease, in her

Harewood rest home.

South New Brighton resident

Michele McCormack saw Mr

McDaniel’s story on Star Media’s

Facebook page, Rise Up Christchurch,

last week and shared it to

another page.

From that, a group of about

nine people had responded saying

they were keen to set up a roster

to take him across town each day.

The McDaniel family was considering

whether to take up their

offer.

Residents angry over

tsunami evacuation

•From page 1

“It needs to be investigated

and streamlined. If sirens are

going to be sounded, they need

to be sounded quicker, because

there was so much confusion,”

he said.

Fellow Rocking Horse Rd

resident Juliet Dickson said she

and her family had gone back to

sleep after the earthquakes, and

were woken by the sirens.

She said they were forced to

travel north up Marine Parade

and New Brighton Rd along

the estuary edge because the

bridges were so banked up with

traffic, and they were terrified

that a tsunami could arrive at

any minute.

“I kept thinking how ridiculous

is it that we are waiting in a

queue for a tidal wave to come.

It’s nuts, and really scary as

well,” she said.

It had made her seriously

reconsider living in Southshore,

she said.

Many residents left their

homes soon after the quake

struck just after midnight on

Sunday, fearing a tsunami.

Although some evacuated immediately

after the quake, many

had gone back to sleep and their

first warning of the tsunami

risk was the sirens activated at

about 2am, two hours after the

earthquake.

The tsunami sirens are

designed to warn of a tsunami

generated by earthquakes a long

way away, not from a local one.

The official advice from the

city council and civil defence

is to evacuate immediately and

not to wait for the sirens if there

is risk from a local earthquake.

A tsunami generated off the

coast of New Zealand could

arrive about 15min after an

earthquake, according to

NIWA, so it warns if people feel

a long earthquake of more than

a minute or one strong enough

to make it hard to stand, they

should evacuate without waiting

for a warning.

It has records of tsunami

waves more than 10m high

generated by earthquakes in

Gisborne in 1947 and in Wairarapa

in 1855, and historical

and geological evidence of very

big tsunamis hitting across

Canterbury.

The quake

Better to be safe than sorry

The Star’s assistant editor Shelley Robinson was

one of the thousands who had to evacuate to higher

ground in the early hours of Monday morning

CONFUSION: Mixed messages received on official websites and

social media on tsunami evacuations.

IF YOU excuse the indelicate

phrasing, in Christchurch we

are used to seeing our next door

neighbours in their undies.

Yes, during the first

initial stages of the Canterbury

earthquake sequence, we all

stumbled from our houses, too

shocked to notice that not everyone

was appropriately clad.

It became quite normal chatting

to your neighbour in the

driveway during night-time

aftershocks, while he is in a

threadbare T-shirt and Y-fronts,

yarning about whether the

aftershock was a 5.5 or a 5.8

magnitude.

However, I have to say, it

was quite another thing to see

everyone up on hills, some in

bathrobes trailing in a state of

confusion, after the tsunami

sirens sounded early Monday

morning. We were all bloody

confused and frightened.

It started soon after 12.02am,

it became quite clear that someone

was not talking to someone

I ran out the door to ensure my

spooky.

It was a long night with people

sleeping in cars, sirens blaring

for, and I’m guessing, half an

hour. Then they would stop for

five to 10 minutes. Then start up

again. That continued until 9am.

There was confusion. If it

stopped, could we go home?

What was the signal for all clear?

Would anyone come tell us when

we could go home? How long

are we going to be here? Where is

that wall of water? Were we high

enough?

More importantly did anyone

have any coffee?

That was the only question

that got answered that night.

The lovely family at house no 9,

dubbed Hotel Tsunami, did have

coffee.

I went through three cellphones

that night, draining

power from two and using up the

credit on another, trying to find

answers until I got them from a

telly at Hotel Tsunami.

The consensus on the hill is we

should have all headed inland,

or at the very least found a road

that took us into the city and

not a dead-end street. But when

the sirens went we thought the

tsunami was imminent and there

was no time for that.

With morning came light, and

we could see the ocean and it

gave us comfort.

I told our car load we were

returning home, they had 10

minutes to get some stuff, while

I threw on clothes to get to work.

“Events such as Monday’s,

where the earthquake likely

triggered a submarine landslide,

make it even harder to quickly

The first lesson to learn from

this is that tsunamis can often

strike the coast with very little

warning, and people in high-risk

an earthquake occurs and not

SEVERAL CARS drove past an

unwell and elderly quake victim

dressed in her pyjamas as she

struggled to higher ground with

her walking stick in the dark.

When no one came to her

aid after the quake, Kaikoura

resident Pat Vincent, 79, had to

head uphill on foot at about 5am

on Sunday.

Mrs Vincent climbed over

a wire fence and continuously

crossed the road to avoid cracked

footpaths, as several cars drove

past on South Bay Parade.

“Once I realised there might be

a tsunami, I thought I’ve got to

walk,” she said.

Mrs Vincent who was recently

in hospital for three weeks said

the walk took her about an hour.

“I just had to walk. I thought

I’m going to get up there and find

help.”

Vincent was relieved to see a

friend and his wife at the top of

the hill, who took her to where

they were staying on Churchill St

in South Bay.

She was in bed at her home on

Moa Rd, South Bay, when the 7.5

magnitude earthquake struck,

sending everything crashing

around her.

LONG WALK: Pat Vincent was left to walk uphill alone in the

dark as cars drove past her in the early hours of Sunday morning

after the earthquake.

“I felt for my torch by the bed,

but the bedside cabinet had

fallen,” said Mrs Vincent.

She slowly made her way from

her bedroom to the lounge in the

dark, where she found a small

torch on the floor.

Mrs Vincent is now safe with

her family in Christchurch.

“I am very relieved . . . and very

tired,” she said.

Daughter Robin Phillips said

she tried contacting her mother

after the earthquake. However,

she did not hear her mother was

safe until 6am from the couple

who had taken her in.

“It’s horrible to think of her out

there by herself.”

Mrs Phillips said her mother

arrived in Christchurch in her

pyjamas, with a coat someone

had given her and a small bag

of belongings she packed in the

dark.

School pleas

for chopper

• By Caitlin Miles

IF ANYONE has a spare helicopter

could they let Cashmere High

School know?

This is its plea as the school collects

supplies for people stranded in

Kaikoura following the 7.5 earthquake

on Monday night. Due to

the limited access in and out of the

area because of road closures and

slips, the school want a helicopter

to get the supplies to where they are

needed.

On Tuesday the school sent an

email to the community asking for

donations of non-perishable food,

dry animal food and baby items to

be dropped off at the office by the

end of tomorrow to give to people in

Kaikoura.

Principal Mark Wilson said the

school wanted to do this because of

the support Christchurch received

following the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

“People in North Canterbury supported

us so we want to do the same

for them,” Mr Wilson said.

If anyone has a helicopter or

knows of someone who may be able

to help, phone the school office, 332

9129. If you have items for distribution,

drop them off to the school,

172 Rose St, Somerfield.

Waiau gets supplies

• By Kurt Bayer

TONNES OF food, water and

supplies are being driven into

earthquake-hit Waiau by bighearted

Cantabrians.

The urgent deliveries are

flooding in from all parts of the

quake-experience province.

There have been collections

for essential supplies across the

city, including at schools and

workplaces.

Cars, trailers, and vans

brought in boxes and cases

of water, food, baking, toilet

paper, baby essentials, pet food,

clothes, toys, and cleaning

products.

Thirty vanloads of donated

goods have been picked up

from the three Rangiora supermarkets

alone, bound for both

Waiau and Kaikoura.

Planes from Rangiora Airport

are flying supplies directly

to cut-off Kaikoura.

It’s believed at least 15 houses

and buildings need to be

demolished in the town whose

population is less than 400

people.

Power was restored to the

township yesterday. It has water

but it’s not for drinking.

An army of volunteers in

SUPPLIES: Donations of food, water and other essential

supplies have been flooding into quake-stricken Waiau.

four-wheel-drive vehicles are

also in town to help wherever

needed, including checking

on remote farms, shoring up

dodgy chimneys or rooftops,

and moving the donated food

into a classroom in the school

which is acting as a Civil Defence

base and shelter.

“Our hearts go out to these

communities so badly hit, so

this is the least we can do,” said

Mary Gill, helping with the

food runs.

However, Civil Defence

Emergency Management Canterbury

is asking people not to

donate goods to Kaikoura just

yet.

Instead, it asks for people

to donate to the Red Cross or

other relief appeals.

Gastro fear

for Kaikoura

CANTERBURY medical officer

of health Dr Alistair Humphrey

says the biggest health risk in

Kaikoura is the possible outbreak

of a gastro bug.

“My personal view is that

people aren’t being vigilant

enough about hand washing and

ensuring drinking water is safe to

drink,” Dr Humphrey says.

“While water supplies are

gradually being fixed, it remains

crucial people continue to boil

their drinking water or treat it

with bleach. The water is not safe

to drink.

“Unless it’s bottled water, don’t

assume it’s safe to drink. Even

water people are getting from the

back of trucks needs to be boiled

or treated.

“People should also not eat

anything gathered from oceans

and rivers due to possible contamination.”

Dr Humphrey says

increasing numbers of people

are presenting at Kaikoura

Hospital with anxiety-related

problems

“It’s important that people

do what they can to look after

themselves and connect with

those around them. Nobody is in

this alone.”

The quake

Kaikoura seabed rises by 1m

• By Jamie Morton

and Belinda Feek

MONDAY MORNING’S

quake has lifted the seabed

around Kaikoura by at least 1m,

scientists have confirmed.

Although a scientific rarity, it’s

a phenomenon that those in the

tourism industry are saying will

spell doom for them and their

jobs.

Local boat skipper Dean Kennedy

said he’d never seen anything

like it in his 50-odd years.

He was at South Bay wharf today

about 90 minutes before low

tide making sure he was seeing

correctly.

He said the explanation was

simple – and it wasn’t good.

“Our summer is buggered.

We’re all out of a job pretty

much.”

Kaikoura was dependent on

tourists and fish, including crayfish,

and there wouldn’t be any of

them around for a few months,

he said.

“Normally it’s busy, flat out.

There are four whale watching

boats, three charter fishing boats

and three dolphin-watching

boats, and long weekends and

Christmas we get recreational

2-2.5m, north of Kaikoura.

fishing boats from Christchurch.”

But now, instead of diving for

paua, the seafood beds had been

left exposed by the rise in the sea

floor.

All the kaimoana that’s in that

zone is going to die, probably,

and even the stuff that moves

down that’s not the environment

it likes to live in.

“Normally where we go diving

people are walking out and picking

them up.

“All the kaimoana that’s in that

zone is going to die, probably

and even the stuff that moves

down that’s not the environment

it likes to live in.”

Mayor Winston Gray admits

the seabed rising will be a challenge

for the harbour and the

local tourism industry.

“It’s changed the landscape.

It appears that our ground has

lifted, some say, up to a metre, we

will find out later but it’s distinct,

you can see it from the shore.

Dr Joshu Mountjoy

“So it’s a millennial change, I

guess.”

The tourism industry was vital

to the region and they had to

work out a way to “just get on”.

This summer had been looking

like their busiest yet.

“We were looking at our best

season ever. Had this happened

any time between Christmas and

May we would have had double

the amount of people in town,

and some.”

Civil Defence controller James

Mackie described the seismic

shift as “staggering”.

There was a half metre uplift

on the hills around Christchurch

during the quakes, he said, leaving

the city “tilted.”

Dr Joshu Mountjoy, a marine

geologist at the National Institute

of Water and Atmospheric

Research said it appeared that

the Hundalee Fault, running out

from Oaro, was responsible for

uplifting large stretches of the

coastline.

“Some faults go side-to-side

and that was very clear with the

Kekerengu Fault – we’ve seen

offsets of about 10m horizontally

– but some faults move vertically,

and in this case, the fault has

pushed the land up into the air,

and it appears to be by about a

metre,” he said.

This effect was normally seen

all along the east coast of the

South Island and of the North

Island – albeit across a much

longer timescale.

“A lot of coastal terraces reflect

that long-term uplift and some of

these are on a deep-seated subduction

zone and sometimes it can be

on a local fault that’s not far off the

shore,” Dr Mountjoy said.

There are indications that

both of these things happen in

New Zealand, and in this case, I

wouldn’t like to be specific about

what’s causing it at the moment.”

Survivor says Pike River plan

On Sunday, it will be six years since

29 miners died on the West Coast

• By Susan Strongman

THERE IS no doubt in Daniel

Rockhouse’s mind that he and

Russell Smith were not the only

two who survived the first Pike

River mine explosion.

Mr Rockhouse, who now lives

in Christchurch, made his way

out of the mine after a methane

blast on November 19, 2010,

dragging Mr Smith with him.

The friends were the only two

men who came out alive after

the explosion ripped through the

West Coast coal mine, leaving

29 trapped inside – where they

remain today.

He calls Solid Energy’s plans to

permanently plug the mine with

concrete “disgusting.”

After protests last week at its

gates – which were led by Mr

Rockhouse’s mother Sonya, who

lost her son Benjamin, 21, and

Anna Osborne, whose husband

Milton, 54, died in the disaster

– Environment Minister Nick

Smith announced the work

would be delayed.

The protest was put on hold

because of the North Canterbury

earthquake.

Sonya Rockhouse said Mr Key

made a commitment to get the

29 out in 2014.

A spokesman for the prime

minister said the Government

had done everything it could to

allow the recovery of the bodies,

but ultimately the decision

whether to re-enter the mine was

Solid Energy’s.

The expert advice remains

that the mine is unsafe to enter

and we cannot risk further lives

by allowing entry when it is not

safe to do so.”

Labour leader Andrew Little

said independent, objective

advice from mines experts

had shown the drift near the

entrance of the mine was safe to

re-enter.

“If the advice that they

now seem to be receiving is

accurate . . . then what possible

impediment is there to go and

check that out. Why wouldn’t

you give it a go?”

The Government could not say

it had fulfilled its promise to do

“everything it could” unless it

took this step, he said.

Nick Smith’s announcement

to delay the final closure of the

mine was bittersweet for Mr

Rockhouse.

“I think they’ve just tried to

ease us into it by delaying it and

pushing it back and back year

after year. They’re just kicking us

in the guts once more.”

He believed evidence of what

caused the series of explosions

could still be gathered from

equipment in the mine. So could

the remains of some of his mates.

“Without a doubt in my mind,

there are people in that mine

that survived that first explosion,

just like I did.

“I believe that some of them

survived and made an attempt

to escape the mine. They could

have fallen unconscious like I

did.

There could be a couple of

bodies sitting in that drift right

now on this side of the fall.”

At the time of the explosion,

Mr Rockhouse was slammed

Daniel

Rockhouse with

Rockhouse.

against the side of the mine. He

lost consciousness, but woke up

and was able to make his way

out. He came across Smith on his

way, and dragged him to safety.

Mr Rockhouse said the

fight for answers had been

traumatising, stressful and

emotional – to the point where

he had stepped away. But his

mother continued to battle.

“Mum’s so determined that

she’s not going to give up until

the bitter end,” he said.

‘disgusting’

“[The families] have tried everything

they can to get everyone

out. What more can they do?

They’re all so passionate about

wanting to find out what exactly

happened down there – even

after everyone’s telling them to

get over it and move on, they’ve

just refused to.

“I think that’s a great thing.

“If I was allowed to, I would

walk up that mine right now just

to find some answers.”

Nearly six years on, Mr

Rockhouse’s life has changed immeasurably.

He’s worked in mines underground

in Australia and Canada.

His marriage has ended and a

new one is about to begin. He

and his fiancee live in Christchurch

with his five-year-old

daughter whom his then wife

was carrying at the time of the

disaster.

He thinks about Pike River on

go to bed at night – my partner

wakes up to find me shaking.

Ethnic wealth gap grows

• By Gabrielle Stuart

NEW FIGURES show a huge

wealth gap between Cantabrians

of different ethnicities, with

Europeans more than twice as

likely to own their own home

than their Pasifika neighbours.

It also showed the gap was

growing.

The figures have been collected

over 30 years and showed fewer

people owned their own homes

across the board, but home ownership

had dropped particularly

for Pasifika people.

Christchurch Budget Service

chairman Don Johnson said the

figures came as no surprise.

He said the gap between the

rich and the poor of all ethnicities

was growing, driven in part

by low wages.

He believed there was an extra

stigma on clients with Maori and

Pasifika heritage, which made it

harder for them.

“Maori and Pasifika clients

often seem to be embarrassed

about being in debt, so they are

less likely to come to us for help,”

he said.

​When statistics were first collected

in the 1986 census, three

out of four Christchurch families

owned their own home – 79 per

cent.

By the 2013 census, that had

dropped to 64 per cent.

Within that time, home

ownership for European families

dropped 17 per cent – from

eight in 10 families owning their

home to seven in 10.

Home ownership for Maori

dropped 19 per cent from five in

10 to four in 10.

The rate for Pasifika families

dropped the most, falling 39 per

cent over that time from more

than half of families owning a

home to just three in 10.

“Most young people we work

379-3589

379-3589

with don’t believe they ever

could buy a home. It’s a real concern

because it’s getting worse,

and it’s hard to see how it could

get better,” Mr Johnson said.

“We often sit around as counsellors

and chat about it, but

it’s hard to know what we can

do, aside from helping our own

clients as best we can, because

there’s no easy solution.”

The statistics took age into

account and showed most young

people started out with a low net

worth, no matter their ethnicity.

But the wealth gap grew as

they aged, and some bought

houses.

The average net worth for a

European New Zealander was

$62,000 in the 25-45 age bracket,

and rose to $266,000 in the 45-

64 age bracket.

In comparison, the average for

Māori was $20,000 in the 25-45

age bracket, and $61,000 in the

45-64 bracket.

It also showed Asian New

Zealanders had the highest average

amount tied up in their own

homes or other properties. The

average Māori or European person

had less invested in property,

but more in things like shares,

bonds or retirement funds.

Fundraising bid

• By Gabrielle Stuart

NINE MONTHS after an

infection left 19-year-old

Josh Caldwell McCausland

paralysed, his friends are

working to buy him a

mobility van to help him

regain his independence.

They have planned a

market day at Mairehau

High School this Saturday

as a fundraiser.

Josh was left paralysed

in March after an inflammation

of the spinal cord,

called transverse myelitis.

Within a week he

progressed from having

a slight tingling in his

fingers, to waking up in

the hospital after three

days in a coma, unable to

move or speak.

After months of

treatment he has

managed to regain a lot of

movement, but his doctors

have warned he may never

walk again.

Because he was

paralysed through an

illness not an injury, he

does not qualify for ACC

programmes which might

ACTIVE: Before the spinal inflammation which left him paralysed, Josh loved

getting outdoors, hiking, skiing and kayaking.

An accessibility van

would allow him to spend

more time with his family,

do more volunteering and

potentially return to work.

A Christchurch family

have offered to sell him

their second-hand accessibility

van cheaply, and his

friends hope the market

and other fundraisers can

draw in the $4500 they

need to buy it.

A friend, Leasa Anderson,

has worked for several

months to organise the

event, and said she did it

because she wanted to help

Josh, who she described

as a friend who “stuck like

glue.”

She said he was a role

model for a lot of children

in the community, and

many people had rallied to

help.

“So many people are

donating their time. There

are a good 100 people involved,

and a lot don’t even

know Josh directly, so it is

really humbling,” she said.

Josh said it was “absolutely

amazing” to see how

many people were willing

to help.

“It’s incredible to see how

much compassion people

put into these things. It’s

almost overwhelming,” he

said.

The market will be

held at Mairehau High

School from 9am-4pm

on Saturday, and will

feature everything from

mediums to massage,

as well as a bouncy

castle for children.

Lifesavers prepare for duty

• By Bridget Rutherford

ABOUT 100 surf lifesavers

will be out in force on Saturday

for the first day of the summer

patrol season.

Volunteers will be at Taylors

Mistake, Sumner, South

Brighton, New Brighton,

North Beach and Waimairi,

as well as Spencer Park and

Waikuku.

Surf Life Saving New Zealand

Christchurch lifesaving manager

Henry Lawson said being

the first day of the season, most

club members would be at the

different beaches.

“We’re pretty excited to get

started.”

Mr Lawson said already, there

had been 40 new lifeguards who

had passed their exams to patrol

this summer, with 40 more

sitting exams this month and

next.

He said all up last year there

were 70 new volunteers across

the city.

“We’re definitely on track for

growth.”

On average there would be

about six volunteers per patrol,

he said.

Across the eight patrolled

beaches last summer, there were

90 incidents that surf lifesavers

and volunteers were called to,

he said.

There were 42 rescues, 50 first

aids and six searches.

For the months leading up

until this weekend, volunteers

had been training with their

clubs and sitting refreshment

courses to get them ready for

patrol season.

“It’s a very busy off season.”

Following Monday morning’s

7.5 magnitude earthquake,

Mr Lawson said as far as he

was aware there had been no

damage to lifesaving equipment.

He said Taylors Mistake Surf

Life Saving Club was already

operating out of Portacoms, due

to damage from the Valentine’s

Day earthquake, while Sumner

had new premises which stood

up well.

North Beach did not sustain

damage, while New Brighton

said.

South Brighton Surf Life Saving

Club was to get an engineering

assessment this week before

it would reopen, he said.

Beach Education courses

were also due to start this week,

which taught school children

about being safe at the beach

and in the water.

The patrol season will run

until March 13.

Honey trial

to cure

cold sores

IF YOU have a cold sore, don’t

rush to the pharmacy just yet.

Free treatment is available as

part of a massive study, which

will test whether honey might be

able to treat the sores.

The study, involving 950 people,

is one of the largest undertaken in

New Zealand.

It is being co-ordinated

through pharmacies, with 10 taking

part in Christchurch.

It is being led by Medical Research

Institute investigator Alex

Semprini, who has already run a

smaller pilot trial comparing the

results of treating cold sores with

kanuka honey, against treatment

with the most common pharmaceutical

cream, aciclovir.

People taking part in the trial

will either be given aciclovir or

kanuka honey to treat their cold

sore, and then document the

results in a daily diary.

The treatment is provided

free for people taking part, and

they will also be given $25 as a

reimbursement for their time.

For more information or to

apply to take part in the trial,

Luck to play familiar tunes at Lincoln

Jordan Luck has written some of New Zealand’s

most iconic rock anthems. He spoke to Tom

Doudney about life after The Exponents and the

inspiration behind his latest material, ahead of

The Jordan Luck Band’s performance at Lincoln’s

Selwyn Sounds concert in March

MORE THAN 30 years after

their debut single Victoria

established The Exponents as

Kiwi rock heavyweights, singer

Jordan Luck’s songwriting is

again in the spotlight.

His new outfit, The Jordan

Luck Band, have been nominated

for best rock album in tonight’s

New Zealand Music Awards.

Luck said it was phenomenal

to have the album, Not Only…

But Also, getting such a positive

reaction.

While his songwriting hadn’t

changed much over the years

he worked harder on the lyrics

these days than he did in the

early years of The Exponents

(originally known as The Dance

Exponents).

“I find the tunes are still coming

out of the air for me but it

takes a lot longer to do lyrics

than it did,” Luck said.

“I was pretty spontaneous back

in the day, whereas now I am

a wee bit conscious of the fact

I might be singing these in 20

years again, so I really want to be

singing something that I want to

be singing.

“That has been the case since

about 1990 when Victoria was

about 10 years old and I was

thinking ‘wow, people still really

like this song, I wonder what

is going to happen to the new

stuff?’ And here we are nearly 20

years later and people are still

singing ‘Why does love do this to

me?’ and I’m going ‘flipping hell,

I better make the next one really

good’.”

However, Luck said this process

had resulted in his best lyrics

yet on Not Only … But Also.

“Even if you didn’t hear the

music, it’s a good read,” he said

The songs, written over the last

three years, cover some very New

Zealand territory, often with an

interesting twist. There is one

about a murder in Lake Tekapo,

another about selling paintings

on holiday in Southland and “a

ROCKING ON: The Jordan Luck Band will play Lincoln’s Selwyn

Sounds concert in March.

beautiful one” inspired by his

memories of getting lost near the

Wanganui River while on a road

trip with original Dance Exponents

guitarist Steve Cowen.

He and Cowen, who died in

1986, had been on their way to

record Victoria at the time, when

Luck, who was behind the wheel

of their Bedford van, decided

to take an alternative route.

The Exponents’ induction into

the New Zealand Music Hall

of Fame last year, with Cowen

also recognised, had brought the

memories back.

The song is really about missing

him in a way that is pretty

strong.”

Luck said starting a new band

after the success of The Exponents

had been tough in some

ways.

The Exponents turn up all the

time, there is no getting away

from that – we got into the hall

of fame last year and now there is

a TV film that they are doing on

The Dance Exponents.”

However, he still enjoyed playing

the old songs and said the

band’s performance at Selwyn

Sounds was likely to be about 75

per cent Exponents material.

Unlike many of the line-up, it

will not be Luck’s first time playing

in Lincoln as The Exponents

played a number of gigs at the

university over the years.

•Selwyn Sounds will be held

on March 4, from 11.30am-

8.30pm. Tickets can be

purchased via Ticketek and

buyers will be able to prepurchase

Our People

Keeping an important part

Sharyn Ley has been good at art for as long

as she can remember. She began drawing

and painting Christchurch’s heritage buildings

before the February 2011 earthquake, but now

that many are gone, her work has become a lot

more popular. Bridget Rutherford spoke to her

about documenting the city’s history

So when did you first get into

art?

I’ve always loved drawing, I’ve

always been good at art. From

about age three, I just started

drawing and couldn’t stop. I did

art right through school. At high

school, you could do seventh

form double art, so eight hours

a week.

Was it something you

studied?

I’ve got a graphic design degree,

but I always really struggled with

the computer side of things. I

was always very good at drawing.

I majored in illustration, it’s

always been my strength. I used

to do a lot in colour pencil. But

my illustrations are mainly pen,

ink and water colour. I’m more

of a drawer than a painter.

And you specialise in drawing

and painting Christchurch’s

heritage buildings. How did

that come about?

When I was at Christchurch

Polytechnic, which is now Ara

Institute of Canterbury, I did a

project in my third year on the

New Zealand villa. And ever

since then, I just loved heritage

buildings. I’d taken hundreds

of photos of old buildings

in Christchurch before the

earthquakes. In 2002, I started

to do a lot more drawings of

old buildings. I started having

exhibitions and selling my prints

and originals at markets. They

were quite popular then, and

after the earthquakes, my work

became very popular.

I hear your work was sold in

Paper Plus stores across the city

following the February 2011

earthquake. Can you tell me a

bit about that?

Back in 2012, I went into Paper

Plus in Northlands and started

talking to Jeff Raines, he’s quite

a well-known photographer. He

owned Northlands Paper Plus

and I was telling him about what

I did. He asked me to bring my

work in, so I did. He got me to do

a whole lot of buildings and they

were sold through all the Paper

Plus stores in Christchurch.

These were prints, greeting

cards and a calendar. I was

also a tourism artist for Christ

Church Cathedral. I did pen and

ink drawings of the Cathedral

and water colour paintings of

buildings and icons. That was in

2007. My work was then sold in

the Cathedral from 2007 until

the earthquake in 2011.

Wow, you must have a

bit of an attachment to the

Cathedral?

work there. Just greeting people

just really love the building.

of the city alive through art

Many of the buildings in your

drawings were damaged or are

no longer there. Do you feel like

you are documenting history

when you draw or paint them?

Definitely.

How do you go about drawing

or painting them?

I use photos. I’ve got hundreds

of photos of buildings from

about 2002, when I started

drawing Christchurch buildings.

I like doing villas the most.

A few years ago, I did a lot of

commissions of private homes.

I also drew the Transitional

Cathedral, which is being sold

inside.

I hear you went along to the

Culverden Christmas Fete to

sell your work, do you have any

other fairs or fetes coming up?

Yes. I’ll be at the Mt Pleasant

Market on November 19, and

also the Twilight Fete, which

is in West Eyreton. That’s on

November 25, between 5pm and

8pm. Then I’ll be at the Love

Light Christmas Market on

December 3 in Yaldhurst.

And when you’re not painting

or drawing, what else do you

like doing?

I like spending time with my

family, going walking and

keeping fit. I had been doing

a lot of new paintings and

tried painting flowers just for a

change. I’m not very good at it

but it’s different.

Do you see something and

get inspired and just want to go

and recreate it?

Especially with old buildings I

do. I haven’t done any drawings

for about a month and I’m going

crazy.

What is the secret to a good

painting or drawing?

I don’t know I’m sorry. People

always tell me I’m good, but

I don’t think anything of it

because I’ve always done it. At

school, the other kids always

wanted me to do artwork for

them, but I didn’t think much

of it.

Do you remember what your

first drawing was?

I used to draw little girls and

make up fashion books. I’ve still

got them now.

Will you look at drawing

or painting the new, modern

buildings in Christchurch when

a lot of them are rebuilt?

No, I don’t think so, I’ll

probably stick with the heritage

ones.

What would be your most

popular work?

The Cathedral. I’ve done that

five times in both pen and ink.

Lately, lots of people have asked

me to do the Memorial Rotunda

in the Botanic Gardens where

the daffodil lawn is. I think I’ll

do that next.

Viewpoint

Responding to quake

MONDAY morning’s

earthquake brought back

memories for all of us.

Quakes of this magnitude are

difficult for everyone and raise

fears of uncertainty.

As the reports came in from

the worst affected areas, our

thoughts went out to the people

around the country who were

scared, forced out of their homes

and often cut off from the rest

of the country. For us here in

Christchurch, we know all too

well the feelings that come after

a major disaster like this.

The two deaths are a terrible

tragedy. We can be thankful

that there has not been more

widespread loss of life. Partly,

this is because of the exemplary

response by Civil Defence personnel

and the public. Unlike

many disasters elsewhere

around the world, people paid

attention to the warning systems

and followed instructions.

Our picture of the situation

has progressively cleared up as

we re-established communications

with the North Canterbury

communities cut off from both

the road and telecommunications

networks. Extensive

damage to water and sewerage

systems are another feature of

major earthquakes all too familiar

to us here in Christchurch.

Kaikoura, in particular,

has faced these systems being

compromised, the pronounced

isolation from help and a major

storm bearing down on the region

on Monday afternoon. The

storm was a particularly cruel

blow, given the long drought

in the North Canterbury and

Marlborough regions.

Evacuations from Kaikoura

and other effected areas began

on Tuesday via RNZAF NH90

helicopters, and the HMNZS

Canterbury arrived in Kaikoura

on Wednesday. Offers of assistance

from the United States,

Australia, Canada, Japan and

Singapore has been accepted

and their militaries are also

heading south to Kaikoura.

In Wellington, the CBD shut

down for checking buildings

and train networks. More

building checks are needed and

some buildings are not in good

Gerry Brownlee

shape. Many people have been

able to come back to the CBD,

however, as we attempt to return

to normal.

From initial checks, it looks

like Christchurch has come

through the shakes quite well.

New standards for buildings

and horizontal infrastructure

were supposed to make

Christchurch’s infrastructure

more resilient in shakes like this.

This is still early days – but it

appears that the designers and

contractors have done their job

remarkably well.

In the days and months

ahead, many communities will

need the same kind of support

that Christchurch has been the

benefactor of. The Government

is completely committed to

providing the response and

rebuild needed to restore these

communities.

Readers respond to a

for his Sinclair St, New

Julie Beadel – This seems

very cruel. It doesn’t seem like

there is a huge amount of work

left to do so surely the builders,

Vero and Platinum homes could

finish it off and make a huge difference

to an elderly couple.

Anita Takau – I wish I was in

Christchurch I’d drive that lovely

man to see his wife every day

no charge! How can a pensioner

afford that every day – fix his

home! Sounds like he’s already

got enough stress to deal with.

Jackie Wallace – So sad.

So many similar cases in Christchurch.

Just because they are elderly

they still need a home. The

elderly should have been sorted

years ago. He is lucky he has a

daughter he can live with untill

it’s sorted. Vero get this sorted.

Maybe the family need to have

a lawyer involved. Hope this

doesn’t drag out much longer.

Ann Dark Poor – Dear old

Bill is just one of so many people

his age and older who are being

denied the right to live in the

home they own, by insurers with

no morals. This is way more than

a scandal – it is a serious breach

of human rights.

Petrea Barker – How can

humans do this to each other.

For goodness sake . . . face up

and give this man and his wife

their home back. It’s disgusting

to leave them like this. Vero and

Platinum Homes shape up.

Fiona Chesney – Totally

disgusting. While our Government

sits and does nothing. It’s

just not good enough. Feel for

this proud man and so many

others like him constantly battling.

Makes my blood boil.

Jan Johnson – Sometimes

we just have to accept our lot in

life or rely on family help. The

earthquake was a freak of nature.

It surprises me that it was not

How do you think it went?

Tsunami systems will be

after Monday morning’s

evacuation processes were

widely criticised.

Mrs Frog Stokes – The sirens

do not work for deaf people

like myself! I have repeatedly

said this to Civil Defence, city

council and anyone else that will

not listen – you need to have

a different system for deaf and

hard of hearing people. There are

plenty of us who live close to the

coast and you have done nothing

to make it accessible for deaf

people. A text-based warning

system needs to be established

– similar to the text 111 system

for deaf people. I do not want

to drown or be a statistic in the

next tsunami because you did

not have a system in place.

Cara Negus – Different websites/pages

had different advice

on who should evacuate. Some

said if you live within 1km of sea

to evacuate, some said 3km and

some said 5km.

THIS WEEK’S earthquakes

in Kaikoura have been a stark

reminder that earthquakes in

New Zealand are a fact of life and

the threat of them won’t be going

away anytime soon.

For those of us in Christchurch,

watching news and footage

of the damage in Wellington

and Kaikoura on the news or

on social media, it brought back

painful memories of our own

earthquake experiences. If you’re

anything like me there was also

a racing heart and a slightly sick

feeling in your stomach.

However, as a well as a reminder

of the initial trauma and uncertainty

that comes with a natural

disaster, we also saw examples

of people coming together and

rising to the challenge. Reports of

businesses opening their doors to

people who had nowhere to go

and offering to serve as temporary

accommodation, reports of neighbours

checking on elderly residents,

stories of the lengths people

went to contact their friends and

loved ones are all reminders of the

way our own community looked

out for each other.

It’s also been amazing to see

communities all around Canterbury

queuing up to aid those hit

by the latest earthquakes.

As Cantabrians, we have firsthand

experience not just of what

people in Kaikoura and the worst

hit areas are going through now,

but of what is ahead of them

– the long march through the

EQC and insurance process, the

mental health impacts.

Something I have often heard

from local people is their strong

desire that the lessons of the

Canterbury quakes be learned

for the future – and in the case

of this earthquake the future

has come much faster than we

were expecting. People want to

know that what they have been

through over the last few years

will lead to things being done

better in the future.

This new earthquake event

gives us a real opportunity to put

some of these lessons into practice.

For me, that needs to start

with ensuring EQC does a better

job with the thousands of claims

likely to come from this event. As

we’ve seen in Christchurch with

the 10,000 remedial requests and

second time repairs, we need to

do a much better job ensuring

qualified people do the initial

scope of works.

We also need to ensure there

is adequate mental health support

available. We’ve learned

the hard way that it isn’t just the

ground and buildings that can be

impacted for years by the trauma

of earthquakes. This should especially

include support for mental

health nurses in schools to help

children impacted by the quakes.

We live in one of the most

beautiful countries in the world

but we do sit on a fault line and

we can’t assume we won’t have

more earthquakes in the future.

We have a responsibility to be

prepared and to ensure people

have the support they need

and to make sure the hard won

lessons from Christchurch are

learned for the future.

True Grit Hair wins best salon

CENTRAL CITY salon True

Grit Hair can claim to be a cut

above the rest after winning a

top award on Sunday.

The business was named

Salon of the Year at the

Kitomba New Zealand

Association of Registered

Hairdressers’ Business

Awards.

Owner Jacqui Victor

celebrated with her team as

they took out the national

award and collected another

three titles along the way –

the Grand Salon of the Year,

Excellence in Marketing and

Best Salon Design.

Looking back over the past

six years, Mrs Victor and

her team have endured eight

moves to different salons after

experiencing devastating

damage to their salons in the

2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

Since then, her strength and

determination, combined with

her team’s commitment and

love for True Grit and their

clients, has meant they are

now in an amazing new salon

and making a huge mark in

the industry.

“We’re so honoured to be

New Zealand Salon of the Year

and winners of three business

awards,” Mrs Victor said.

“It was totally unexpected

because the calibre of the

other entrants was so high.

We’re extremely proud of

our amazing True Grit team.

Without them, we wouldn’t be

where we are today, and we’re

so happy to have shared it with

them last night.”

Kitomba chief executive

Tom Murphy commented on

True Grit’s success: “A huge

congratulations to True Grit

and especially Jacqui. I have

huge admiration for Jacqui –

she is the consummate leader,

the consummate professional.

Seeing Jacqui lead her team

and business out from

under the devastation of the

earthquakes to rebuild and

take the award for the best

New Zealand salon business is

really inspiring,” he said.

“This award is part of an

ongoing demonstration of

excellence from True Grit.

We’ve seen True Grit win the

(Hair and Beauty Industry

Training Organisation)

Training Salon of the Year

award two years in a row and

they’ve been strong contenders

in the business awards and

other competitions both here

and in Australia. This award is

a great achievement and well

deserved,” Mr Murphy said.

More than 300 hairdressers,

barbers and beauty therapists

celebrated at Sunday’s industry

awards.

The annual awards are

a collaboration between

Kitomba Salon Software,

NZARH and HITO.

Founded in 2006, the

Kitomba NZARH Business

Awards were created to build

a culture of recognising

and celebrating business

excellence in the New Zealand

hairdressing industry.

Since 2010, the awards have

been celebrated together with

the HITO Training Awards.

EVEN THOUGH it has

been a wet finish to spring

there are plenty of tasks to

do in the garden.

All summer vegetables

should now have been

planted. This includes

beans, beetroot, cabbage,

celery, corn, cucumber,

lettuce, courgettes, spring

onions, peas, pumpkin,

radish, spinach, tomatoes,

silverbeet and kumara.

Make sure your developing

vegetables are well

watered – without over

watering them. Continue

to ‘lateral’ (nip out shoots

that appear between the

junction of a leaf and the

stem) tomatoes and tie

them to stakes for support.

Keep staggering your

vegetable plantings for

continuous cropping over

New season herbs

important with newly

planted hedges.

Mulching is incredibly

important over the

summer months to keep

your garden healthy. The

best mulch is a form of

organic matter that is applied

as a layer on top of

your soil in your garden,

around plants, trees, and

especially in your pots, to

help protect them against

the elements and retain

moisture.

Timing the application

of mulch is very important

and it’s better to wait

until soil temperatures

have risen. In the colder

areas of New Zealand;

such as parts of the South

Island, apply mulch now.

In warmer regions, mulch

can be applied from late

October/early November.

This is the last month to

sow or patch large parts of

your existing lawn before

it becomes too dry. For a

lush green lawn, fertilise

regularly with fertiliser

and water it in well.

Guide

Beans

Whether you have a large plot or you

grow your vegetables in pots and

containers, beans are a ‘must have’.

I think there is nothing better than going

out to pick and eat fresh beans right off

the vine. You can sow bean seeds right

into February and most will germinate

with-in 7-10 days of sowing and will

mature between 60-90 days, some will

mature even faster. We have four varieties

available already started in packs, or

choose from our massive seed range with

over 10 different beans to choose from.

Dwarf

There are three great dwarf varieties of

beans, the smallest of which is ‘Dwarf Baby

Bush’, the plant grows to only 300mm

tall but still produces 100mm pods -

amazing. ‘Dwarf Yellow Butter’ is one of my

favourites because it produces an amazingly

delicious yellow beans which have a melt

in the mouth sensation. Finally ‘Dwarf

Tendergreen’ is stringless and very tender -

a real winner in my book.

Climbing

The climbing varieties produce massive

crops on vigorous plants. Beans come in a

range of colours, green, yellow, red and even

purple. Whether you plant in the garden

or containers, try using an obelisk, a very

attractive yet practical feature.

Growing

The best advice I can give you for growing

these is to prepare the soil well and

provide good support for the plants. Before

sowing or planting dig in a good amount

of ‘Oderings Shrub & Tub’ and set up the

frame-work for the plant to grow on. All

climbing beans will naturally wrap around

and climb up your structure, but make

sure it is low enough to get them started.

Once they are hooked on they will do their

own thing with little assistance from you.

Halfway through the growing season feed

your beans with ‘Oderings Total Replenish’

or a good general fertiliser to extend their

production.

Children enjoy growing peas and beans

because you can see results and reap the

rewards relatively quickly.

range, or visit our online shop for seeds at

deals, you often pay a price. The devil was

in the detail, and upon closer inspection

of our itinerary, I winced. We knew that

we were to fly to Napier via Auckland,

however, didn’t quite factor in the two-hour

layover at the airport. With four kids in

tow, this was a rookie mistake.

As the revelation sunk in, my optimist

hubby whispered: “It’ll be an adventure –

fun times, a good challenge for the kids; the

airport will be great!” Yeah right.

So last Monday we set off. We were

laden with snacks, books, toys, electronic

goods and buckets of positivity – we were

set for anything. This was going to be an

adventure alright.

The first leg saw us divided into two

rows of three seats. The two Big Girls sat

with their Dad, the twins with me. As a

veteran flier, I paraded a fistful of lollipops

and advised they would be handed out at

the end of the journey to those kids who

remained buckled in and listening (plus, it’s

a handy tool for equalising ears on descent).

Lollipops are awesome in that way.

The first leg flew by as they happily rifled

through colouring-in books, food and

reading supplies, and finally the lollipop. We

disembarked, collected our luggage and rechecked

for the Napier leg. Part one, done.

We filled the next two hours eating dinner,

reading more books, and making origami.

Hubby monitored the twins as they broke

away to do laps around the terminal. The

craziness of boredom had kicked in, as did

the maniacal sense of being cooped up in

such a confined, yet public place. Lots of

space, people and stares.

In the final 15min before boarding, they

got such a burst of energy that they had

morphed into mini WWF wrestlers and

started tackling each other.

It seemed to amuse fellow commuters

and burned up some energy. So far, so good

and we soon boarded for our second leg.

Within minutes of take off, my eldest

daughter demanded a sick bag. Her sister

looked on nervously, fearing the potential

splash-back should we hit turbulence.

Luckily, she’s a seasoned pro when it comes

to travel sickness, and vomited into her

bag with minimal fuss. I carefully handed a

very full parcel to an anxious-looking flight

attendant, who double, then triple-bagged

it for good measure.

The next 30min dragged as boredom

set in. I moved into negotiation mode and

reached for the lollipops. I knew I was

dancing a sugar-high tightrope, but I was

tired and desperate for calm.

When we landed, the kids excitedly

streaked across the tarmac to the open

arms of their grandparents. We were

almost there. A final 30min car ride saw the

girls full of chatter as dusk settled and the

realisation hit that we were on holiday.

Home by 9pm and a military operation

saw them in bed within 15min. Exhaustion

set in and everyone was soon fast asleep

after an eight-hour, door to door journey.

A week later, I’m nervous just thinking

about the trip home. This time, we have

a three-hour layover at Auckland airport.

I have a good stash of supplies, and have

plans to go to “Butterfly Creek” – an

attraction near Auckland airport that has

a playground, cafe, animal park, butterfly

house and other activities. I’m all over it.

Moreover, I’m reminding myself of the

savings we made in booking these tickets.

Surely it’s worth it. Besides, how bad can it

be?

Ara students

prepare for

runway show

ARA INSTITUTE of Canterbury

fashion students are putting the

final touches on their end of year

collections in preparation for the

annual PITCH show.

From first to third year, all

the students will showcase work

created throughout the year in a

runway show. The PITCH fashion

show is a part of the Bachelor of

Design degree at Ara.

Third year student Liz

Commons said it’s been a fullon

year and she can’t wait to

showcase her work.

“We’ve worked endless

hours, day and night, to get our

collections to the point they are

now. All of it will pay off, though,

once we see our pieces on the

runway,” she said.

WORLD designer Francis

as a guest judge, said the show is

‘just cool.’

It will be held on Saturday,

Versatility of the white T-shirt

LAST WEEK it was the white

sneaker, this week it’s the white

T-shirt.

Ranking right up there with

your trusty little black dress and

that perfect-fitting pair of jeans

is the white T-shirt.

There’s a reason why wardrobe

classics are often touted as the

saving grace for any outfit dilemma.

They provide versatility

in a busy world when you can’t

decide what to wear.

Very few clothing items elicit

such reliability and versatility

than the white T-shirt.

They work with almost anything

from worn-out denim

jeans to a flouncy summer skirt.

They also fit a tailored pant suit

or even underneath a sheer 90sstyle

slip.

How to wear one for summer?

For starters, make sure you keep

your whites bright and light by

washing in hot water and using

a fabric whitener or the more

environmentally-friendly lemon

juice and distilled vinegar.

Start with a basic white

T-shirt, preferably one in 100

per cent cotton, like the option

shown from Ruby’s Liam label.

Cotton breathes better than

oil-based synthetic fabrics like

polyester, so it’s the perfect fabric

to wear when you’re on the go.

Cotton doesn’t pill (collect

balls of tangled fibers) either.

That happens when the fabric

rubs against itself or another

material. Once nylon, polyester

and blends pill, it’s permanent,

while cotton sheds any pills in

the wash.

There’s nothing humdrum

about a white T-shirt either. The

best way to wear a white T-shirt

is with a sense of fun and plenty

of attitude.

How to get more mileage

out of a white T-shirt this

summer

•Layer underneath a

summer dress

•Keep it classic with

lightweight knit and blue

jeans for the weekend

•Dress it up with a lace

camisole and dinner pants

or skirt in a special fabric

•Add a point of interest

with contrasting bottoms

in a graphic print and flats

•Summer work wear is

made easy with a T-shirt

worn under relaxed

tailoring

History unfolds in the ruins of Athens

• By Mike Yardley

HISTORY SLAPS you in the face

at every turn in Athens, with so

many ancient landmarks and

dramatic ruins dominating the

cityscape.

How extraordinary the Parthenon

must have looked 2400 years

ago, when it was adorned with

gold, ivory and precious stones.

A sense of ageless drama

extends right across the Acropolis,

and I still think the sweetest

heart-stealer is the Erechtheion,

graced by six flamboyant maiden

sculptures, the Caryatids.

If you’re heading up to the hilltop

treasure, to walk in make an

early start to beat the stampede

of coach groups, and be here at

8am, when the gates swing open.

After descending from the

Acropolis, follow the tree-lined

pedestrian promenade around

the base of the Rock, for more

grand echoes of the Golden

Age, notably the classical arenas,

Dionysus Theatre and the Odeon

of Herodes Atticus. He was an

Athenian Roman senator who

built the theatre in memory of

his wife. How very Taj Mahal.

I then made my first visit to

the compelling and ultra-modern

Acropolis Museum, which

opened six years ago.

This light and airy museum

is absolutely superb, brimming

with thoughtfully-presented

sculptures and artworks safeguarded

from the hill-top

temples. Unobstructed views of

the Acropolis ensure the context

is always felt.

On the top-floor, the glass-encased

Parthenon Gallery mimics

the dimensions of the original

building, with a wrap-around

marble frieze, replicating its layout

to give you a sense of being

inside the temple shortly after its

construction.

About half of the pieces are

originals, while the rest are white

plaster copies, highlighting their

absence and subtly making the

case for their rightful return

from the British Museum, aka

Elgin’s Marbles.

Other instagrammble highlights

include Hadrian’s Library,

the Tower of the Winds, and the

beautiful Byzantine churches.

Close to Plaka and Syntagma

Square, tick-off Hadrian’s Arch,

the ruins of the Temple of Zeus

and the Panathinaic Stadium. I

adore this venue. It is the only

stadium in the world built entirely

in marble, housing 50,000

spectators and built in 144 AD

by Herodes Atticus. After being

excavated and refurbished, it was

the main venue for the first modern

Olympics in 1896 and was

again used for the 2004 Games.

Finish your landmark-hopping

back at Syntagma Square, which

is home to the Greek Parliament

DRAMATIC: The Panathinaic

Stadium (left) and the

Acropolis are landmarks

which dominate the Athens

cityscape.

– a familiar sight on our TV

screens in recent years.

Fancy a hotel with a view to lift

the spirits? At the Hilton Athens,

on swanky Vassilissis Sofias

Avenue, the Galaxy Bar is the

cherry on top.

With unobstructed views of

the floodlit Acropolis rising

above the city, this see-andbe-seen

bar serves inventive

cocktails saluting the stars, such

as Jupiter (gin, Champagne,

cucumber and mint.)

Galaxy’s spacious open-air

terrace is fittingly edged with

potted olive trees, and the festive

bar stays open late into the early

hours of the morning.

Just a few steps away from the

Athens Metro, this ultra-modern

and stylish hotel boasts a variety

of restaurants, generously-sized

accommodations, marble bathrooms

and every contemporary

creature comfort you could hope

for.

Milos Restaurant is swooned

on for its fresh fish dishes, while

Byzantino serves a broader

Mediterranean menu, offering

buffet and a la carte dining.

Hilton Athens also features

one of the city’s biggest pools, so

stupendously sized, it deserves

its own post code, fringed by the

equally restorative Oasis Pool

Grill & Bar. www.hiltonathens.gr

The Star

Travel

Sun, sea and surf on Hainan

Kate Preece heads to Hainan Island to experience a luxury resort

holiday, Chinese-style

FIVE STAR: One of the many luxury resorts in Hainan Island,

MGM Grand Sanya was formerly Hotel Gloria Resort, the first

resort in China.

Getting there:

•Christchurch to Guangzhou flights operate Sunday,

Wednesday and Friday. (From December, Mondays and

Thursdays, as well.) Flights to Sanya include transfer at

Guangzhou/Baiyun International Airport. Contact your local

travel agent or visit www.csair.co.nz to book.

•Unless you are in China for transit only (less than 72 hours),

a tourist or business visa is required. It will take three to

five working days to be processed and must be applied

for in person at the Chinese consulate office (106 Hansons

Lane, Upper Riccarton), open Monday to Friday, 9am-noon.

Applications online: christchurch.chineseconsulate.org,

under ‘Public Forms’. Single entry is $140.

A THREE-course meal, a few

movies and a glass or two of red

later, a small travel group touched

down in Guangzhou, 12 hours

after leaving Christchurch.

The flight was courtesy of

China Southern Airlines, the

service was enjoyable, and after

a quick transfer at Guangzhou/

Baiyun International Airport, we

were a mere 90min from sun, sea

and surf.

Flying into Hainan Island, the

references to the ‘Hawaii of China’

are believable. Mountainous green

hills give way to deep valleys, with

ribbon-like rivers glistening down

below.

Around the island we circled,

getting closer to the more

inhabited eastern edge, where the

popular city of Sanya unfurled

before us. It is here that the luxury

– and only – resorts in China are

found, and where we were to rest

our heads for four nights – in two

of the area’s prestigious resorts.

The island’s assets seem to be

spaced evenly about a 30min

drive from one another, therefore,

it took such a time before we

arrived at the MGM Grand –

originally the Hotel Gloria

Resort, the very first resort in

China.

Greeted with lei-like flowers

and a glass of the best coconut

milk I have ever tasted, we were

quick to immerse ourselves

into resort life – swimming,

sunbathing and ordering from the

bar in a swimsuit.

After tourism, agriculture

is the second biggest industry

on Hainan Island, with trucks

transporting produce to ships,

which carry on to mainland

China.

Crops include pineapple,

coconuts, bananas, mango, which

flourish in the year-round average

temperature of 25 deg C.

Rice, too, is a common

commodity, which is why paddy

fields are still in plain view when

travelling between Yalong and

Haitang bays. The endemic

mountain rice is a short, fat grain

known as shanlan and gives rice

wine a purplish hue.

It is, however, most favoured by

the Li people, as a trip to Ganza

Li Village – or the Areca Valley

Tourist Resort of Hainan Ganza

Ridge Primitive Culture – is quick

to show.

Akin to our own Maori

cultural experiences, the village

provides insights into a time

gone by. Based on a village built

400 years ago, a theatrical show

with a troupe of performers, fire,

goats and ducks, showcased the

traditions of the Li people.

From the courting ritual, which

involved the woman pinching

the man-of-interest’s ear – the

harder the pinch, the deeper the

love – to the intricate weaving

techniques that led to Huang

Daopo (1245-1330) to popularise

cotton planting in Shanghai, and

improve the textile industry, it

was a high-energy show that

entertained young and old.

You can also try their

traditional bamboo pole dance

– a fast-paced skipping act

reminiscent of Elastics, yet with

bamboo poles threatening to clap

together on your legs should your

rhythm be off.

The joyous dance formed part

of rice harvest celebrations.

The food in Sanya is worthy of a

long lunch.

Island – the ‘Hawaii of China’

Juice comes straight from

gigantic green coconuts, is extracted

from corn (served hot)

or squeezed fresh from a cactus.

Meat is served whole – fish, in

particular, and the dumplings

couldn’t be better.

By the end of our trip, the menu

du jour was sweet and sour pork,

fried rice, pan-fried dumplings,

and moreish vegetables. Spice

fiends will also be satisfied, with

the hot stuff part of the everyday

menu.

To experience something offthe-beaten

track, take a trip to a

fishing village. We arrived at one

not long before sunset, joining

a raft of boats making their way

inland or heading back out, fully

equipped with rows of squid

lights hanging high above the

cabins.

The waterway was lined with

restaurants. Those workers who

don’t own a restaurant will take

their hauls directly to the fish

markets, but the rest are waiting

for restaurant-goers to choose

their menu.

For us, it was swallow fish,

which melted in the mouth after

being boiled in stock on a burner

atop our table.

This form of ‘steamboat’ or

‘hot pot’ is classic Chinese fare,

REAL LIFE: Fishing villages offer holiday-makers a glimpse of a

more rugged lifestyle.

and the go-to option if you are to

experience any Chinese barbecue

buffet.

With four days in Sanya, we experienced

little more than a taste

for this tropical oasis. A short trip

through one of the shopping areas

brought us head-to-head with the

locals, which was what the Kiwis

craved (especially those after a

bargain or two), yet for those

wishing for a resort-style retreat,

choose from 43 international

brands and there’s no doubt you

will find solace.

TROPICAL RICHES: With its ideal

climate, fruit is a key part of the

island’s agriculture industry.

Nantian Hot Spring

The biggest open-air hot spring in China, with mineral

water of an average 57 deg C.

Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone

A Tang Dynasty-styled Buddhism theme park, at the

foot of Nashan Mountain. Touted as the ideal ecotourism

and spiritual site for Buddhist and non-Buddhists

alike.

Areca Valley Tourist Resort of Hainan Ganza Ridge

Primitive Culture

More than just a cultural experience, zip-lining

through the forest would get the adrenaline pumping.

Wuzhizhou Island

For water sports, diving and snorkelling and sunbathing,

a visit to this popular island off the coast of

Haitang Bay is worth a look.

Orchid World

Described as the world’s largest tropical orchid

theme park, visitors can expect to see more than

3000 species of orchid, 300 of which are extraordinarily

rare.

Buxingjie shopping street

A great place to fill up your suitcases. Expect Chinese

trinkets from outdoor stalls, plus floors shops dedicated

to different shopping areas – from clothing to

toys. A good place to master your bartering, with at

least 20 per cent expected to be taken off the first

price offered.

Experience a Dreamliner flight

HAVING experienced

Asia’s third largest city,

as well as China’s resort

capital, a group of local

travel agents has returned

with a fresh perspective of

Guangzhou.

The tour – supported by

China Southern Airlines

and Sanya Tourism Board

– began by highlighting the

ease at which travellers can

transfer from Guangzhou/

Baiyun Airport to Sanya,

Hainan Island, where

China’s first resort was

built.

An hour-and-a-half

flight connects the busy

metropolis of Guangzhou

with the white-sand

beaches and luxury resorts

of Sanya. Four and fivestar

international brands

(including MGM Grand,

Wyndham and Sofitel) offer

top-quality service, and

many make the most of

Sanya’s Yalong Bay, voted

among the top 25 beaches

of 2016 (Trip Advisor

Travellers’ Choice Awards).

Next year will see the

opening of Atlantis Hotel

– with 1314 rooms, a water

park and shopping mall,

on the 62ha site.

Sanya’s Vice Mayor Li

Baiqing addressed the Kiwi

contingent and confirmed

China tourists. The Russian

influence already sees

some Cyrillic script dotted

around city centres, but the

level of English – spoken

and written – is very low.

The appeal of Sanya [to

Christchurch travellers]

is providing a traditional

white-sand beach holiday

experience, and immersion

into Chinese culture.

For the intrepid traveller,

they would feel quite

empowered by the experience,”

managing director

of House of Travel Upper

Riccarton Dalwyn Sinclair

said.

The gateway to Hainan

Island – Guangzhou/

Baiyun International

Airport – is also in expansion

mode. Situated at the

northern end of the city, it

offers access to 80 international

destinations and,

by December, is expecting

passenger numbers

through the terminal to

reach a record-breaking

60 million for the year. To

ensure capacity continues

this upward trend, the

addition of a 531,000 sq m

terminal is under way, with

a completion date set for

February 2018.

In regards to the service

between Christchurch

and Guangzhou, Dalwyn

Sinclair said: “The modern

Dreamliner [Boeing 787]

experience provides the

great health and well-being

experience for passengers

on board. And the product

and onboard service is exceptional

value for money.”

China Southern Airlines’

direct route from Christchurch

not only provides

an alternative gateway to

multiple international destinations,

but with Guangzhou’s

72-hour visa-free

period, enables travellers to

enjoy a rich taste of China

en route, or before a beachside

retreat.

directly to China

and the World.

Theatre/Arts

Concert to honour iconic rock event

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PERFORMING IN a concert

to commemorate legendary

Canadian-American roots rock

group The Band will be a trip

down memory lane for musical

artist Paul Ubana Jones.

Jones, along with city musicians

Delaney Davidson and

Adam McGrath have been

hand-picked by original musical

director and producer of The

Band, John Simon, to perform in

the 40th anniversary concert.

It will honour The Band’s final

concert at San Francisco’s Winterland

Ballroom on Thanksgiving

Day in 1976.

The tour travelling around

New Zealand will perform its

first show at the Isaac Theatre

Royal next week starring The

Band’s original keyboardist

Garth Hudson and John Simon.

Jones, now based in Southbridge,

first saw The Band

at The Royal Albert Hall in

London in 1966 backing up Bob

Dylan at his infamous “Judas”

show where he switched from

playing folk music to rocking out

on an electric guitar.

He then saw The Band made

up of Rick Danko, Garth Hudson,

Richard Manuel, Robbie

Robertson and Levon Helm in

Costumes highlight of production

“BEAUTIFUL costumes and a

dreamlike interpretation.”

That’s how the director of

Theatre Arts at Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School describes the

upcoming junior school production.

Theatre arts director Peter

Rutherford said this fresh

adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s

familiar classic incorporates

dance, a mixture of live and

recorded music and beautiful

costumes.

“With the performing arts

building which includes specialist

staff and music, dance

and acting spaces, we are

fortunate at Rangi Ruru to be

able to produce a show of this

Adam McGrath Delaney Davidson Paul Ubana Jones

what he described “in their full

strength” at the Wembley Stadium

in 1975.

He said the music The Band

played was extremely diverse,

heartfelt music which influenced

his own career of creating soulful,

contemporary music.

“It was a different era. Let’s be

honest you know if you didn’t

smoke grass or hashish well too

bad because these joints were

being passed around . . . that was

the era it was in,” he said.

Born in London in 1952, Jones

moved to Southbridge about 22

years ago and played his first

concert in the city in 1988.

In his time in the country,

Jones has won three New

Zealand Music awards and has

continued to perform internationally.

He said he is touched to

be chosen by John Simon to

perform in The Last Waltz and

will perform an array of songs

including Forever Young by Bob

Dylan, and It Makes No Difference

by Rick Danko.

Davidson, of Lyttelton, said it

is amazing to be performing in

such a concert with legends such

as Simon and Hudson.

The range of music is huge . . .

it was almost the end of an era,”

DREAMY SHOW: Rangi Ruru Girls’ School’s production of

Alice in Wonderland will be “dreamlike interpretation” of

standard,” he said.

Mr Rutherford said Rangi

Ruru’s production focuses on

the dreamlike nature of the

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

story.

he said.

Davidson has made a career of

touring his music in Europe and

the United States and has been

the winner of the winner of the

APRA New Zealand Country

Music Song of the Year three

years in a row.

His latest achievement was

being awarded The Arts Foundation’s

The Laureate Award last

year, receiving $50,000 for excellence

across a range of art forms.

Arthur’s Pass based musician

Adam McGrath said he is most

excited about playing with some

of his local heroes and watching

Garth Hudson play.

The cast includes more than

70 students in year 9 and 10.

The lead role of Alice will

be performed by four students

– year 9 Amelie Spinks and

year 10s Rachel McSweeney,

Sarah Liddell and Sarah Lawrence.

•Rangi Ruru Girls’

production of Alice in

Wonderland will run from

November 23-26 at various

again that pops up and keeps

you going. I am really glad I decided

McGrath said.

McGrath made his career in

It’s like sudoku: each

line has to contain

the numbers 1-6, and

the numbers can’t be

repeated in any row or

column.

But it’s sudoku with a

twist: The numbers in

each heavily outlined

set of squares, called

cages, must produce the

number in the top corner.

For example, 5+ means

the numbers add up to 5,

9x means the numbers

multiply to equal 9.

TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the

same line or row.

Exciting career ahead in the automotive trade

Southern Institute of

Technology (SIT) graduate Janaka

Liyanapathirana’s childhood love of

cars has seen him excel to an exciting

career in Automotive.

Janaka completed the Certificate

in Automotive Engineering in

Christchurch in October and, after

being recognised for his overall

outstanding efforts throughout the

course, has graduated with a prized

welding helmet gifted by BOC.

“I was really surprised about the

award, it was so unexpected,” he said.

Coming to New Zealand to

pursue his dream of becoming

a mechanic, Janaka said he tried

different automotive courses around

the country but only found the right

course for him at SIT.

“I was so lucky to find the right

place, the right course and the right

tutors [at SIT], from all of the other

places where I tried within NZ,”

The best opportunity the course

gave me was the live practical

experience and institutions with

proper techniques from the tutors

who are qualified and have long term

experience in the same trade.”

Janaka said he has already received

an opportunity to enter the workforce

and start his career.

“I think I have followed the right

track, by the time I finished I got a job

offer from the biggest car company

in Christchurch, so I have already

planned to join them and enjoy

working with what I have studied.”

Haig to lead Black Sticks

• By Gordon Findlater

NEW CAPTAIN: Canterbury Cavaliers player Nick Haig will

captain the Black Sticks against Australia tonight.

NICK HAIG will captain the

Black Sticks against Australia

tonight – a month after being

omitted from the squad for the

Rio Olympics.

It’s been a tough 12 months for

the Canterbury defender. Haig

suffered a broken leg at the beginning

of the year, leaving him

a tough task to prepare for the

Olympics. But, after returning

to fitness in time, he was understandably

disappointed when he

missed out on representing New

Zealand at what would have been

his second Olympic Games.

The 29-year-old returned to

play for Canterbury in the recent

National Hockey League and did

enough to be named in coach

Colin Batch’s 20-man team to

take on Australia in this week’s

Trans-Tasman Trophy.

“I found out last week. Batchy

(Batch) told me at the start of

training and then announced it

to the team at the end of training,

which was pretty awesome

for that to happen in front of the

guys,” said Haig.

Regular captain Simon Child

has taken a break from international

hockey, elevating Haig to

the top role after previously holding

a place in the senior leadership

team. Haig’s 193 caps for the

Black Sticks make him the most

experienced player in the current

squad.

Haig has previously captained

the Black Sticks on one occasion

in 2014 against Japan. However,

he believes tonight will be a

whole new experience, taking on

rivals Australia on home soil.

They’re a world class side,

number one in the world. To be

able to lead the guys out against

Australia will be an awesome

experience,” said Haig.

Tonight will also be one to

remember for a number of other

Canterbury players. Striker Sam

Lane, defender David Brydon

and striker Dominic Newman

are all set to make their international

debuts.

“I’m stoked for those boys,

they’ve been playing really well

over the past two NHL seasons.

Hopefully, I can make it a comfortable

experience for them so

they’re not too nervous come

tonight,” said Haig.

Tonight’s game is the first of

the three-match trans-Tasman

series. The Black Sticks women

play Australia at 6.30pm before

the men take on Australia at

8pm.

Both games will be played at

Lloyd Elsmore Hockey Stadium

in Auckland.

Mountain-biker gets

chance to perform

CASHMERE HIGH School

downhill mountain-bike

rider Billy Meaclem has been

selected for a high performance

programme in Rotorua.

Cycling New Zealand has

announced an initial 13 riders

to be selected for the newlyformed

Mountain Bike National

Performance Hub in Rotorua.

The Hub, that was announced

last month, is one of a potential

eight hubs that underpin Cycling

New Zealand’s strategy to

foster and grow young cycling

talent, and increase the quantity

and quality of riders feeding

into the national high performance

programme.

The initial intake has been

selected following a training

camp at the campus of major

hub sponsor, Toi Ohomai

(formerly Waiariki/BOP Polytechnic)

last month.

Hub coach Sam Thompson

said this initial group will come

into Rotorua on a regular basis

for training camps and also receive

training programmes for

both on and off the bike, sports

science and nutrition.

The initial squad is:

Cross-country, under 23 – Ben

Scholarship chance drives Summerfield

• By Gordon Findlater

MATT SUMMERFIELD is on

the brink of an opportunity that

could help take his talent behind

the wheel to the next level.

The Rangiora rally driver is

one of five who have been shortlisted

for the inaugural Hyundai

NZ Young Driver Shootout and

Scholarship, created by World

Rally Championship driver

Hayden Paddon.

“It’s not just about the fastest

driver. We’re looking for the

whole package – personality,

motivation and ability to

learn and improve, as well as

outright performance during the

shootout. The winner may not

necessarily be competing in the

New Zealand Rally Championship

at this stage – we are looking

for someone that stands out and

has the X factor,” said Paddon.

Hawkes Bay’s Max Bayley,

Rotorua’s Sloan Cox, Waiuku’s

Dylan Thomson and Ashburton’s

Job Quantock will join Summerfield

in Auckland for the

shootout weekend in December.

“Sloan and I probably have

the most experience but I don’t

think that’s going to count for a

lot. Any of the five can do the job,

that’s why we’ve been selected.

DOWN TO FIVE: Rangiora’s Matt Summerfield will look to the

Hyundai NZ Young Driver Shootout and Scholarship to his list

of accomplishments in 2016 which include winning the Ashley

Forest Rallysprint title and Tauranga Clubmans Rally. ​

It’s going to be an interesting

weekend but I’ll just give it my

all and see what happens,” said

Summerfield.

Being an aspiring young rally

driver has come with plenty of

ups and downs for the 24-yearold.

Summerfield won his first

ever round of the New Zealand

Rally Championship at the

Daybreaker Rally in Wairarapa

last October and still has a dream

driving on the world stage.

“That’s always been the objective.

Some days it seems close and

other days impossible but this

programme is a great boost for

any New Zealand rally driver,”

said Summerfield.

The prize for the winner will

certainly act as a great stepping

stone for someone looking to

further their driving career. It

includes the opportunity to drive

the Hyundai NZ AP4 i20 rally

car in two rounds of the 2017

NEXT GENERATION: Kiwi World Rally

Championship driver Hayden Paddon has teamed

up with Hyundai to help unearth the country’s next

star.

New Zealand Rally Championship

being operated and run by

Paddon Rallysport, testing and

training with Paddon, plus the

potential for an expanded programme

in 2018.

The drivers will be tested on

a range of skills required to

become one of the world’s top

drivers. This will include assessments

on fitness, how to identify

and look after sponsors, nutrition,

media presence, writing

pace notes and car set-up. The

drivers will also get a day behind

the wheel in a Hyundai AP4,

gunning for the quickest time

driving to their own pace notes.

When it comes to pace notes,

the weekend will be a family

affair for Summerfield, with

sister Nicole joining him in the

co-driver seat.

“That’s something we’ve

worked really hard on over the

last couple of years. You can’t

even begin to go fast without

good pace notes and if you’re

trying to go fast without good

pace notes it usually doesn’t end

up going very well,” said Summerfield.

The five finalists were selected

from more than 180 applicants

and will participate in the

shootout from December 9-10.

TOYOTA LAND CRUISER 70: Packed with features to earn it a five-star ANCAP

safety rating.

Safer Land Cruiser 70

• By Ross Kiddie

TOYOTA’S Land Cruiser

70 series arrives fully

loaded for 2017 with

revisions to the line-up

and sizeable expansions in

safety equipment.

The Land Cruiser

single cab models achieve

a maximum five-star

Australasian New Car

Assessment Program safety

rating.

The exterior remains

relatively consistent with

only slight remodelling

seen in the bonnet which

adopts a higher, more

pronounced budge

providing more clearance

above the engine and

intercooler.

As the first significant

round of changes the

Land Cruiser 70 Series

has seen in two years, the

2017 model adopts vehicle

stability control, active

traction control, electronic

brake force distribution,

hill-start assist control,

brake assist and reversing

camera across the five

variant line-up.

The re-engineering of

the Land Cruiser 70 series

enables us to continue to

offer this iconic model to

customers who require

a vehicle that can handle

New Zealand’s challenging

environment,” said Spencer

Morris, Toyota New

Zealand’s general manager

of product.

“This unapologetically

rugged vehicle has an

unrivalled reputation for

class-leading mechanical

reliability and serious

towing, load carrying and

off-road performance.”

Starting from $75,780,

the Land Cruiser 70 Series

has both single and double

cab variants available in LT

and LX grades.

Land Cruiser 70 series

continues with a 151kW,

430Nm 4.5-litre V8

turbo diesel engine. Fuel

consumption reductions

result in an 8-10 per cent

decrease from the outgoing

model.

Single cab models enjoy

a 44 per cent increase in

fuel capacity from 90 to

13-litres, making trips to

even the remotest back

country a small feat, while

the LT wagon continues

with two 90-litre fuel tanks.

Inside the iconic Land

Cruiser 70 Series, a suite of

technology makes it equally

compatible in the digital

age with cruise control as

standard, a 6.1in display

audio unit with Bluetooth

connectivity, CD player

and USB port. The display

also performs as a monitor

for the reversing camera.

Single cab variants

receive additional

enhancements to improve

the structural integrity of

the cabin and a chassis

that is larger and stiffer.

Side curtain air bags and

a driver’s knee air bag,

adjustable seat belt anchors

with pre-tensioners and

an emergency stop signal

complete the single cab’s

safety feature overhaul.

The Land Cruiser 70

is priced at: LT single

cab, $75,780; LT double

cab, $79,380; LX single

cab, $81,980; LX double

cab, $85,580; LT wagon,

$84,980.

Holden Colorado a versatile load carrier

• By Ross Kiddie

WHEN MY daughter left home

and went flatting she bought a

new bed and mattress from a

store in Blenheim Rd.

Her flat was only one block

distant in Riccarton so we transported

the mattress on the roof

of her trusty Toyota Celica –

transport problem solved.

But it was a different story

when she opted to return home

a few months later, our home

is several kilomoteres from the

flat and we had the mattress to

transport.

I thought I was being clever

when I arranged to evaluate a

Holden Colorado crewcab ute

during the time the shift was in

progress, I anticipated the mattress

sitting neatly in the tray.

Well, when the ute arrived it

had a big aluminium sports bar

across the deck and that prevented

the mattress sitting neatly. But

with a bit of Kiwi ingenuity and

several ropes the mattress was

secured and transported back to

the Kiddie dwelling, but it was

with much anxiety.

Nevertheless, what the exercise

did serve to prove is how adaptable

the modern ute has become,

it’s a genuine five-seater and has

deck space which lends itself to

multiple uses.

The Colorado has just had a

major upgrade from Holden, so

much so that it could be considered

a new model. Yes, the

engine and driveline is pretty

much a carryover, but the interior

has had a major refresh, and

the exterior gets a few cosmetic

enhancements.

As before, the Colorado lands

in a multitude of two and fourwheel-drive

variations – 24 in

total – consisting of crewcab,

single-cab/chassis and spacecab.

The evaluation vehicle was a

mid-spec LTZ with cab proper

and it lists at $62,990, the range

starting from $39,990.

Under the bonnet sits a 2.8-

litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged

diesel engine. Most Colorados

will sell with automatic transmission,

as in the test car’s case,

COLORADO: Major upgrade for Holden’s tough ute. Its four-wheel-drive system is engineered for serious off-road work.

TECHNOLOGY: MyLink infotainment system is home to

Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

but a six-speed manual is still

an option. As before, the engine

has mammoth power outputs

– 147kW and 500Nm (440Nm

manual), the latter available at

just 2000rpm with solid turboboost

to the red line.

Other favourable figures are

those of its fuel usage. Holden

claims an 8.7-litre per 100km

(32mpg) combined cycle average.

In terms of driveability, the

Colorado is civilised and refreshing

to be behind the wheel of,

it drives easily with clean shifts.

Unladen it feels quite spirited, it

will easily claim an 11sec time to

make 100km/h from a standstill

and will lunge through an overtaking

manoeuvre of 5.8sec.

Not that acceleration is important

to the Colorado’s role, but it

isn’t a slouch and is comfortable

at highway speed.

The same can be said of its

handling manners, utes are

never the best in a corner thanks

to the load-bearing suspension

engineering, but the Colorado

behaves itself reasonably well if

a quick corner sneaks up, it is

receptive to steering input and

directional change.

Up front the suspension is by

way of double wishbones, while

• Price – Holden Colorado,

$62,990

• Dimensions – Length,

5361mm; width, 1872mm;

height, 1800mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheeldrive,

2776cc, 147kW,

500Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11sec

• Fuel usage – 8.7l/100km

a leaf spring located live rear axle

props up the rear. The spring

and damper rates are set far

from firm, all the new age utes

are compliant in the suspension

and the ride in the Colorado is

even, controlled and well cushioned

from ruts and bumps.

With 215mm ground clearance

the Colorado is a bit of a master

off sealed surfaces. The media

launch for the new model incorporated

a long drive through

North Canterbury’s Lees Valley

and an off-road excursion to a

plateau high in the hills.

The off-road section was challenging

in terms of grip, rain

had turned much of the track to

mud. It was a good test of the

Colorado’s ability to put power

to ground as grip in the soft,

slushy stuff never appeared compromised.

Holden has done well with

exterior and new interior design,

it looks dynamic from the

moment of first glance, and the

in-cabin environment is tasteful

and functional. It also gets all the

trick gear that Holden is building

into its entire range these

days. Items of note include the

MyLink infotainment platform

which incorporates Android

Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity,

and all the safety kit to

earn it an Australasian New Car

Assessment Program five-star

safety rating.

Holden still rates the Colorado

with a 3.5-tonne tow and

1-tonne payload figures, the

deck area measures 1484mm

x 1534mm which is about the

industry standard for a doublecab

wellside. That being the case,

it is a serious load carrier and it

does so with finesse. The changes

Holden has made to the range

bring it closer to car-like rather

than ute-like. That combination

of ability and occupant-friendly

in-cabin aesthetics is remarkable.

And for those awkward loads

like I experienced, it is a case of

being downright versatile.

a look at your place from the street and

see it through a buyer’s eyes. So, cut the

lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add

some garden lights and place a nice pot

or plant by the front door. Ensure the

house exterior is cleaned or freshened

with new paint if necessary, hose down

drives, paths and fences, put stylish new

numbers on the house and perhaps buy a

funky new letter box!

Make an entrance

Even if your entrance or hallway is

small, you can still give it some wow! A

large mirror adds light and makes an entrance

look twice the size. Fresh flowers,

candles or a stylish piece of art create an

inviting first impression. Ensure floors

are clean whether timber, tiles or carpet.

Create space

Light, air and space are three key

factors in presenting a home to the best

advantage. Open up curtains and windows

and use lamps and light fittings for

mood and ambience. Arrange furniture

to maximise space and remove items that

make the room appear cramped.

Fresh feel

Freshen rooms with new paint if necessary,

but aim for neutral tones which are

more versatile for buyers. Add a splash of

colour in cushions, throws, artwork or a

vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or

bedspread and always make the bed!

Clear out clutter

Storage space sells but clutter complicates!

Clean out your cupboards, shelves

and garage, and get rid of unnecessary

clutter. Buyers inspect wardrobes and

Presenting your

home for sale?

The way you present your home not only makes selling it easier, but it

may sell faster and increase the price a buyer is prepared to pay.

cupboards so tidy them up and reduce

the number of photos, books, nicknacks

on display – they distract buyers, too!

Beautify the bathroom

Replace or resurface fittings if necessary,

but otherwise you can simply

beautify your bathroom with thorough

and fastidious cleaning, thick opulent

towels, a tray of beautiful soaps and some

lush, green plants. Invest in a new shower

curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a

sleek, modern towel rail.

Clean clean clean

Cleaning is a mandatory part of selling

your home: have carpets, rugs and upholstery

commercially cleaned and sanitised,

clean drapes and blinds to look like new,

polish glass and furniture, wash down

all surfaces and fittings in the bathroom

and kitchen, clean all light fittings, wash

windows inside and out, deodorise your

home to eliminate any odours from pets,

cooking or smoke.

Outdoor spaces

Even a small patio, deck or terrace can

be enhanced with a café table and chairs.

Add some colourful accessories – placemats,

candle lamps, pots and plants, and

there you have an extra living area. If

space is not limited, hang a hammock,

string some outdoor lights, position a

garden sculpture or create a water feature

that buyers will love.

Hire a handyman

Squeaking doors, dripping taps,

cracked tiles, broken fences, leaking

toilets or appliances that don’t work are a

turn-off for buyers. If you can’t repair or

replace things yourself, then hire a handyman

to make sure everything in your

home works as it should.

Finish it first

Buyers want to see a finished home,

not one that’s still being fixed! So finish

everything before you list your home for

sale, then launch it onto the market when

it looks its absolute best – you have nothing

to lose and everything to gain!

Door sales $40 or @Dash

THE Cashmere Club is situated at

the southern end of the city between

Colombo Street and the meandering

Heathcoat/Ōpāwaho River.

Riverview Restaurant provies a

cheerful and family-friendly

atmosphere with the option of al

fresco dining on the spacious

covered deck. The local community

club is also home to a sports bar,

beer gardens and a conference room

that caters to weddings and

corporate functions.

The a la carte menu includes a

range of hearty traditional fare, from

lamb shanks to chicken stacks. We

took advantage of the diverse range

of meat options and chose to create

our own surf and turf meal -

beginning with green-lipped

mussels, followed by ribeye and

salmon fillet for the mains. The

dozen or so mussels were perfect for

sharing being half-shell topped with

tomato salsa and finished with a

parmesan crust. Shortly after we

tucked into the main courses:

chargrilled ribeye steak, and panseared

salmon fillet served with

mash and a side of vegetables.

I’ve always been delighted at the

prospect of combining land and sea

in a meal. Living in New Zealand,

it’s easy to take for granted the

abundance of fresh and delicious

produce available at our fingertips.

We are so fortunate to have an

extensive range of meat and seafood

in the South Island. While you can

find surf and turf at just about any

mid-range restaurant in North

America, nothing compares to

Canterbury’s beef and lamb,

Marlborough’s mussels and thick

salmon steaks. It’s comforting to see

a menu that echoes the bountiful

offerings of this region. Whenever
