Still missing in action

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CIVIL DEFENCE has still not

made contact with residents’

groups more than three weeks

after people were forced to flee

from a possible tsunami along

the New Brighton coast.

Motorists were stuck in long

queues trying to evacuate from

the Marine Pde area across

three bridges to safety after the

November 14 Kaikoura 7.8 magnitude

earthquake.

Residents’ groups are angry

Civil Defence has not returned

phone calls and emails, and

what the plan is in the event of

another tsunami scare.

Christchurch East MP Poto

Williams also says she has tried

without luck to contact Civil

Defence.

And confusion increased

yesterday when Canterbury Civil

Defence group controller Neville

Reilly told The Star he had no

information on the situation

and did not know who was coordinating

it.

He said the matter was being

handled by the city council

branch of Civil Defence.

A city council spokeswoman

said she could not contact those

staff yesterday, because they were

still co-ordinating the response

in Kaikoura.

Two weeks ago, the city council

referred The Star’s inquiries

to Mr Reilly but he was out of

DANGER: The Southshore spit looking north, where residents

struggled to evacuate.

contact in Kaikoura.

But Civil Defence has responded

to a group of Sumner

residents, and has promised to

send someone to speak at a community

meeting there next week.

A Sumner Residents Community

Association spokesperson

said the meeting there had

been initiated by the Sumner

Volunteer Fire Brigade, but Civil

Defence had agreed to send a

representative when they were

contacted.

South Brighton Residents

Association chairman Hugo

Kristinsson said the New

Brighton situation was not good

enough.

“Given the situation here and

what we are actually facing, and

the amount of money that has

been put into research, I would

think they would have pinpoint

accurate information and a coordinated

response, but that does

not seem to be the case,” he said.

He said he had tried repeatedly

to get information from Civil

Defence, particularly around

traffic control.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the Cathedral spire damaged by

an earthquake on December 5, 1881. On the same day in

1987 Reverend Margaret Wood was elected the first female

Archdeacon in the Christchurch Anglican Diocese. On

December 8, 1843, the Greenwood brothers (James and

Joseph) settled at Purau, Lyttelton Harbour. On December

9, 1867, the Lyttelton railway tunnel opened (right), it was

the first in the world to be drilled through a volcano rim.

On December 10, 1981, the Government announced its

intention to preserve the Chief Post Office in Cathedral

Square. On the same day in 1989 Sunday trading began

in Christchurch. On December 11, 1979, stage one of the

international airport arrivals terminal was completed.

In Brief

MAIN RD CONTAINERS GO

The last of the shipping containers

along Main Rd are expected to

be removed on Monday. The

containers were placed on several

roads around Sumner following

the February 22, 2011, earthquake

to protect road users from rock

fall and landslides. However,

$3 million footbridge

‘Bureaucratic

exercise of

stupidity’

• By Bridget Rutherford

FOR $3 million, a six-bedroom,

six-bathroom home with a

swimming pool, orchard, olive

grove and vineyard could be

yours – or it could get you an art

bridge.

That is the amount Crown

owned company Otakaro Ltd

has budgeted for its new North

Frame Art Bridge, due to be

completed in 2018.

The 50m bridge, to be used

by pedestrians and cyclists, will

cross the Avon River and link

Oxford and Cambridge Tces, as

part of the Avon River Precinct.

Otakaro has just issued a

Request for Proposal for a

designer or artist, an architect

and structural engineer to

design a concept for the bridge.

But artist Andrew

Drummond said $3 million for

the North Frame Art Bridge

was “pretty expensive” for

something that was not needed.

SIMILAR PRICE: Clearview Lodge, a six-bedroom,

six-bathroom home that doubles as luxury accommodation

is up for sale with an asking price of $3.2 million. It sits on

3.49ha of Harewood land and has a swimming pool, orchard,

olive grove and small vineyard. ​

He designed a footbridge to

go across a different part of

the Avon in 2000. But it was

scrapped partly because of its

$500,000 price tag.

“If they are going to spend $3

million on a bridge when there

really is no need for one, and

call it art, it is an insult to A:

Art, and B: The function of a

bridge,” he said.

“It’s a bureaucratic exercise of

stupidity.”

An Otakaro spokesman said

the $3 million could not be

broken down.

“How this will be apportioned

will be determined by the

design, site conditions and

engineering design of the

chosen RFP design concept,” he

said.

The budget is based on

professional assessments of what

it will cost to deliver a bridge

that is both functional and

distinctive.”

Businessman Alasdair Cassels

is building a footbridge across

the Heathcote River next to The

Tannery, but said their budget

was about $500,000.

“Ours is a little bit like that

but I’m hoping it doesn’t cost $3

million.”

He said it seemed expensive.

In comparison, Clearview

Lodge in Harewood is for sale

for more than $3 million. It has

six bedrooms and bathrooms,

and has a swimming pool,

orchard, olive grove and small

vineyard. It doubles as luxury

accommodation and sits on

3.49ha of land.

Earlier this year, Otakaro

called for ideas to guide the

design of the bridge, with 14

people responding. In June, The

Star requested under the Official

Information Act what the

budget for the bridge would be.

However, chief executive Albert

Brantley declined to release it

to “prevent the disclosure of the

information for improper gain

or advantage”.

TENNIS COURT LIGHTS

The Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board will decide

at its meeting tomorrow whether

to support the Cashmere Tennis

Club’s application to install

10 8m-high lighting poles on

four of its courts. The plan has

been contentious as a number

of residents were concerned

the lights would spill over their

properties and players would

generate noise while playing

under the lights until 8.30pm.

The former Spreydon-Heathcote

Community Board had previously

been expected to make its

recommendation several months

ago, but asked for the residents

and tennis club to discuss the

concerns before making a

recommendation. Seven residents

will make deputations on the plan

at tomorrow’s meeting. The final

decision will be made by the city

council’s head of parks.

SPORTS CENTRE REPAIRS

Work will begin next year

on earthquake repairs and

maintenance to the Pioneer

and Jellie Park Recreation and

Sport Centres. City council head

of recreation and sport John

Filsell said both facilities needed

earthquake repairs, planned

maintenance and upgrades. He

said the work would be staged

over two years and a plan would

be developed with the need to

maintain levels of services across

both facilities and manage costs.

The final scope of the work

and the staging would not be

confirmed until early next year.

Concerns over

Civil Defence

response

•From page 1

People needed to know things

like whether traffic should use both

sides of the road when evacuating,

Mr Kristinsson said.

“We had incidents last time where

people were trying to get in to get

medicine or help older people out,

so while the idea was to have two

lanes going out, it didn’t work,” he

said.

He is now organising a group of

local volunteers to manage traffic if

there is another tsunami warning,

because he said he was not confident

Civil Defence would respond.

SURF New Brighton chairwoman

Lesley Fulton said she had also had

a lot of questions from residents,

but had not heard back from Civil

Defence. The tsunami sirens were

not activated until about two hours

after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake

struck.

Responding to messages from

residents after the evacuation,

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said there

would be a full review of the

response.

“Not only do we need to ensure

that tsunami sirens are deployed in

a timely fashion, we need coastal

communities to be aware of what

they should do after an earthquake.”

Speaking out may have cost job

• By Gabrielle Stuart

SPEAKING OUT against the

health system may have cost

another Canterbury District

Health Board member his job.

Chartered accountant Steve

Wakefield was one of three

CDHB board members appointed

by Health Minister

Jonathan Coleman in 2013, who

were told last week they would

be replaced.

Mr Wakefield has spoken

publicly about the troubled

relationship between the CDHB

and Ministry of Health, and

criticised the ministry’s funding

process.

But his removal came as a

shock to other health board

members, who said his financial

expertise had been invaluable

when dealing with their current

financial crisis, and he was still

needed.

He is a partner at Deloitte.

It comes after both former

health board chairman Bruce

Matheson and deputy Peter

Ballantyne were removed from

appointed positions in 2013.

The Canterbury Hospital

Medical Staff Association

believed that was because the

two had challenged the then

Minister of Health Tony Ryall

on local issues.

Association president Ruth

Spearing said it looked like the

same thing had happened to Mr

Wakefield, because he had stood

up to talk about local issues.

“It seems to be that if you

speak out you don’t get reappointed,”

she said.

Mr Wakefield told media in

October the relationship between

the CDHB and Ministry

of Health suffered because of

“branch office showing up head

office” syndrome, and that “pioneers

are always the ones with

the arrows in their backs.”

He has also spoken out about

the CHDB’s funding, saying

there had been a shortfall in

funding from the Ministry of

Health because of flaws in its

system.

He told The Star yesterday he

knew he was risking his seat on

the health board when he spoke

out.

“That’s is always a risk, but

I’ve felt it is my responsibility

as a board member to say what

the issues are and call a spade a

spade,” he said.

Dr Coleman refused to answer

questions from The Star yesterday

about whether Mr Wakefield’s

comments played a part in

the decision to remove him.

A spokeswoman for Dr

Coleman said he had “nothing

further to add,” and pointed The

Star back to the press release announcing

who the new members

were.

Former board members Edie

Moke and Susan Wallace also

lost their seats, but Ms Moke

was appointed instead to both

Murray

Cleverley

Steve

Wakefield

the West Coast and South Canterbury

DHBs, and Ms Wallace

had moved into a bigger role

with Ngāi Tahu.

They were replaced by outgoing

Ngāi Tahu kaiwhakahaere

Sir Mark Solomon, Ngāi Tahu

Property chairman Barry Bragg,

and Chambers PR director

Tracey Chambers.

Health board member Murray

Cleverley, who has always

supported Ministry of Health

decisions when asked by The

Star, was the only one of the four

reappointed.

He said he did not believe the

public comments were the reason

Mr Wakefield had not been

reappointed.

“I don’t think the Government

are that shallow I certainly have

felt they have respected my

opinion and I can speak fully

and frankly to the minister and

ministry,” he said.

Sugary drinks not for council

• By Bridget Rutherford

SUGARY DRINKS and

unhealthy food being served

at recreation centres, libraries

and city council-run events will

likely be phased out to promote

health and well-being.

The changes would come as

part of a Healthy Food Policy

being developed by the city

council, with a draft to be presented

to councillors in May.

Head of strategic

policy Helen

Beaumont said

the policy would

likely include the

phasing out of

sugar-sweetened

Boyd

Swinburn

drinks in all city

council owned

facilities or

events it runs.

She said unsweetened drinks

were likely to remain.

More unhealthy foods defined

in the Canterbury District

Health Board guidelines would

be reduced or phased out, she

said.

“Council is taking the opportunity

to lead by example in developing

a Healthy Food Policy

for its facilities and events,” she

said.

“Through this policy, the

council is aiming to provide a

healthy eating environment for

its staff and the public to promote

health and well being.”

Ms Beaumont said it was

hoped the public would be able

to experience a fuller range of

healthy eating options at its

facilities and events.

She said the policy would

likely include a phased in timeframe

for healthy food and

beverages, and that would be

determined in the draft policy.

Once the draft was presented

to councillors it would likely

go out for public consultation

before being implemented, she

said.

In July, Auckland Council

dropped sugary drinks from

vending machines across its 21

leisure centres, while Nelson

City Council did it in 2014.

Professor Boyd Swinburn,

whose research is centred on

community and policy actions

to prevent obesity, said the move

showed “excellent leadership,”

which would be applauded by

the public.

“Having Christchurch events

build a reputation for serving

great, healthy foods will also

create a very visible demonstration

to New Zealand and overseas

visitors that these changes

can be successfully made.”

He said if all national Government

agencies became exemplars

for healthy food service, it

would create institutional role

modelling for other organisations

to follow.

The city council also plans on

mapping all of Christchurch’s

available fruit and nut trees,

local food markets, community

gardens and look into a joint

healthy food procurement

network.

Another year;

no progress

• By Caitlin Miles

ANOTHER YEAR has rolled by

and the rubble that was once the

Sydenham Heritage Church still

hasn’t moved – and won’t before

Christmas.

The remains of the church on the

corner of Colombo and Brougham

Sts has been there for nearly six

years since the building was pulled

down two days after the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

Previously, the Sydenham Heritage

Trust has said the rubble would

be shifted before the end of the year.

When asked trust chairwoman

Dorothy Haywood would not say if

the rubble would be gone by the end

of the year.

She said to call her after Christmas

to ask the question then.

Meanwhile, artefacts buried in

the rubble have not been recovered.

Last year, the former Spreydon-

Heathcote Community Board

obtained a container for the trust to

store the recovered artefacts in.

Mrs Haywood said there were

items they wanted to recover.

“We do know there are some

plaques in the front vestibule of the

church commemorating various

people and there was another big

marble plaque commemorating

people. We are hoping for those,”

Mrs Haywood said.

Prioritising what needs to

After more than a year as Canterbury District

Commander, John Price sat down with Gabrielle

Stuart to discuss how the job has been going

IN MORE than an hour spent

with Superintendent John Price,

he can’t have stayed in his seat

longer than five minutes at a

time.

The door was always open and

people regularly popped in –

asking about important issues,

or just to let him know about

their latest achievement.

Then the phone would call.

First an area commander about

something discussed in an earlier

meeting. Then a media query:

Was the closure of Arthur’s Pass

station being considered again in

light of the earthquakes?

Even without outside interruptions,

he was constantly up

and down. First to pick up a copy

of the Constable’s Oath, which

always sat behind his desk lined

up beside his collection of police

hats and pictures of his family.

Then pointing out principles of

policing from the list developed

by Sir Robert Peel in 1829, which

he had hung on his wall: “The

police are the public, and the

public are the police,” he quoted.

There was an email he wanted

to show from a woman saying

thank you after an officer had

gone the extra mile to help her

during a family violence call out.

“I know we’ve got the best police

officers and the best police team

in the country,” he said.

The Canterbury district he is

responsible for runs north almost

to Kaikoura and south past

Waimate – that’s 39 police stations

in total. Today, he planned

to be on the road visiting the

stations in North Canterbury,

something he tries to do regularly

so he can stay in face-to-face

contact with them.

Across the district, there are

872 sworn police officers and 105

other staff – numbers he knows

by heart.

He said his role was as a

guardian, of both his staff and

the community.

The call about Arthur’s Pass

was an example of one of the

toughest aspects of his role

– deciding what to fund and

prioritise.

SERVE AND PROTECT: Superintendent John Price is in charge

of 872 sworn police officers and 105 other staff.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

He said the number of

incidents at the Arthur’s Pass

station over the past year were

single digits, compared with

stations like Darfield, where he

had two staff dealing with more

than 200 incidents. The one

officer who manned the station

travelled a lot and was very

rarely there anyway.

But when he visited to talk to

locals about a leaked proposal

to withdraw it, he said they had

pleaded for it to stay.

“One lady told me she had a

spiritual connection to it,” he

said.

For now, he said the station

was safe, although that could

change in the future.

Thank-you for helping.

Tackling family violence was

one of his highest priorities,

he said. There were about 200

family harm incidents reported

in Christchurch each week,

adding up to more than 11,000

a year – and those were just the

ones reported.

“It is an area where we know

if we can break the cycle, we can

make a difference. The one place

where as a human you should be

safe is at home, with people who

love you,” he said.

Rising mental health issues

in Canterbury since the

earthquakes were also a big

focus.

He said 20 per cent of police

work was related to mental

illness – in the last year,

Canterbury police dealt with

more than 2000 emergency calls

after attempted suicides.

A lot of his work was in

building relationships with other

agencies, which meant dozens of

meetings every week.

The proof of that was in

colour-coded folders lined up

on his desk, which outlined his

schedule for each day.

The blue “Monday” folder was

packed full.

be done all in a day’s work

His morning had started with

a district command meeting at

eight, followed by a meeting with

the leadership team discussing

everything from budgets to

events coming up.

Then there was a meeting to

discuss health and safety and the

welfare of staff.

Then a finance meeting,

a meeting with Canterbury

District Health Board chief executive

David Meates, a meeting

about mobility and another to

discuss the Christmas party for

children of staff this weekend.

After our interview, he had

another with other emergency

services like St John and the

Fire Service. In the evening, he

was booked to speak at a Zonta

community meeting until about

7pm.

Perhaps it was a result of his

work teaching, which included

two years as a national manager

at the Royal NZ Police College,

but he could relate almost every

subject to some mantra or acronym.

Even his last name, Price, he

had turned into a personal mantra:

Professionalism, Respect,

Integrity, Commitment to Maori

and the treaty, Empathy.

“Is that cheesy?” he asked.

Next year will mark 30 years of

service as a police officer.

He’s worked on many highprofile

cases during his years

in the Criminal Investigation

Branch, including the murder of

Coral Burrows and the Louise

Nicholas case.

One which stuck with him was

a case in Porirua, where the victim

had been brutally murdered

with a 4x2, and he had to deal

with the murderer.

“When I arrived he was abusive

and spat at me, but at the

end of the interview he shook my

hand. Not for putting him away,

but for the way I had dealt with

him.”

Other times it was the victims

he remembered, like one case

where 40 children had been

abused by one man, and he saw

the impacts on each child’s family.

He was deployed to Phuket

after the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami,

where he was responsible

for managing the identification

of more than 5000 bodies at a

mortuary.

But dealing with the February

HARD CHOICE: One of the toughest decisions Superintendent

John Price has ever made was whether to send staff back

into the former police building after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

22, 2011, earthquake response

was easily his toughest day on

the job, he said.

That was before he officially

started in the role, but he was

acting district commander that

day as then Superintendant Dave

Cliff was away.

“We were worried about the

safety of our own families, as

well as staff and the community,”

he said.

On an average day, he said his

staff would deal with about 50

urgent 111 calls but, immediately

after the earthquake, there were

more than 2000.

One of the toughest decisions

he had to make was whether to

send staff back into the 13-storey

former police building. A lot of

the information and equipment

they needed for a fast response

was in the building, but he also

had the safety of his staff on his

shoulders.

But the experience did not put

him off accepting the role when

it was offered in June last year.

“This is my hometown, so

you’ve got skin in the game. You

often think in the years to come

what will your legacy be, what

difference have you made? And I

think it’s right to come back to a

place that has given you so much

and to be able to give back,” he

said.

Although most of his work was

off the beat, he still made arrests

and gave out tickets regularly –

even when he was off the clock,

which he said frustrated his wife

at times.

“But I would rather stop someone

and get them to put their

seat belt on and make sure they

will get to where they’re going

safely, even if it means I am late

myself,” he said.

Our interview went a good 20

minutes longer than scheduled,

giving him only a few minutes to

prepare for his next meeting, but

he still took the time to escort

me out personally.

As we passed through the

foyer, he noticed a couple waiting

in line at the front desk. They

were the only ones in line, so

wouldn’t have had long to wait,

but he stopped anyway.

“Can I help?” he asked.

When I left he was standing

with them still, head bent over

their paperwork as he listened.

LANCASTER PARK REPORT

A report on Lancaster Park

will go to city councillors next

Thursday. However, a city

council spokeswoman said no

decision about the future of

the stadium would be made at

next week’s meeting. It is not

yet known what will be in the

report. The stadium was damaged

in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake. Plans for a new central

city multi-purpose stadium

are on hold until it is decided

whether Lancaster Park could

be repaired cost-effectively.

OUTDOOR CINEMA

The Arts Centre’s restored

North Quad will be transformed

into an outdoor movie theatre

tomorrow night for the first of

the Leighs Construction Summer

Cinema series. The series

will get under way with two

Christmas movies – The Muppet

Christmas Carol at 5.30pm, followed

by Love Actually at 8pm.

PLAYGROUND UPGRADE

Scarborough Park’s playground

in Sumner will get a $150,000

upgrade. The current playground

is too old and will be

rebuilt. The city council is asking

people to visit its website

to submit their ideas on what

they want included in the new

playground.

Sharing the story

of shedding kilograms

• By Gabrielle Stuart

SHRINKING VIOLET blogger

Elora Harre has returned to

Christchurch, hoping to use her

growing international success to

help people in her home town.

She lost more than 55kg

through healthy diet and exercise,

and made international

news when she talked publicly

about her battle to get 2.5kg of

excess skin surgically removed.

She has spent the last year

living in Perth, developing her

business and releasing a book

last month.

Although she said living in a

big city had helped to push her

out of her comfort zone, she

always planned to return.

“New Zealand will always be

home,” she said.

Her Shrinking Violet blog now

has more than 45,000 followers,

most from New Zealand, and

she said she wanted to be based

nearer to them.

She has also been developing

her 10-Week Challenge, which

more than 800 people have now

completed.

Until this year she developed

her businesses around a full-time

job, but she decided early in the

ACHIEVEMENT: Elora Harre has lost more than 55kg.

year to devote herself to her businesses

full-time.

That meant she had time to

write her book, The Shrinking

Violet, which details her own

journey and gives tips and recipes

for others.

It took about three months to

write, she said.

“It was hard work, but most

rewarding work is. Saying I’m a

published author at 22, for me

that’s such a huge accomplishment.

There’s not a huge amount

of money in books, so that’s not

the big draw, but having another

avenue to inspire people is so

cool.”

Her next goal was starting a

healthy cooking video series,

which she plans to start filming

in Wellington this weekend.

Since she returned last week,

she said the strangest thing was

how many people recognised her

on the street.

“It happens in the oddest

places. I got recognised in Perth

a couple of times, and in the

middle of LAX, and a few times

in Nelson, or when I’m out in

bars with friends for a night out.

I love meeting people, but I never

know what to say. I don’t think

I’ll ever get used to it.”

The Shrinking Violet is

available in most bookshops,

or can be ordered directly

through New Holland

No new high school

for city’s south-west

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HALSWELL AND Wigram

will not get a high school in the

next 20 years in spite of a boom

in the population.

The Ministry of Education

said it has no plans for a high

school in spite of economic development

agency Infometrics

saying one is needed.

Statistics released by Infometrics

showed the population in

the south-west of the city was

expected to increase by 85 per

cent over the next seven years.

Due to the population explosion,

it said a high school was

needed in the area at some stage

over the next seven years.

But the MoE has masterplanned

for an extra 1950 high

school spaces at existing schools

in the Halswell and Wigram

areas for the next 20 years.

MoE’s sector enablement and

support Kim Shannon said the

plan allows for Hillmorton and

Hornby High schools to meet

predicted growth in this area.

She said the south-west area

in the report includes parts of

the Selwyn district which are

served by Darfield High School,

The Star

Lincoln High School and the

soon to open Rolleston College.

Hillmorton High, which is

currently sitting at 717 students,

has been master-planned for

2000 students in the future.

Redevelopment at the school

will allow for 1000 students.

Hillmorton High principal

Ann Brokenshire said she did

not agree with Infometrics that

a new high school was needed.

She said while a master plan is

a long way off in the future, the

school will be very different if it

reaches 2000 students.

“I know there are some

negative perceptions in the

Halswell area and we have got

to really work so that those

people are involved in this,” she

said.

Meanwhile Hornby High’s

rebuild is master-planned for

the school to grow to 1300

students in the future. Current

redevelopment at the school will

allow for 800 students.

The Infometrics report also

said growth in the Halswell area

was undeserved in a range of

services including retail, social

and community amenities.

Airport rates highly

CHRISTCHURCH

International Airport has

rated highly in an online

research poll.

New research from

Cheapflights.co.nz found

the airport was best for

speed and ease of passing

through security, waiting

at baggage claim and Wi-Fi

access.

The research found Kiwis

looked for cleanliness,

decent toilets and a good

range of bars and restaurants

in airports — with

Queenstown International

• By Kurt Bayer

A Christchurch nursing

assistant accused of having

unprotected sex with three

men without disclosing

his HIV-positive status has

denied the charges.

Johnny Lachlan Benjamin

Lumsden, 26, was

arrested last month and

appeared in the district

court on Tuesday on a

criminal nuisance charge

that he had unprotected

sex without telling a man

he was HIV-positive in

Christchurch on October

19.

Airport rated the best in

the country.

However, the domestic

airports Auckland and

Wellington didn’t rate so

highly.

Auckland Domestic Airport

was left in last place,

with Wellington Domestic

Airport not far behind.

Now, he has been

charged with two more

alleged encounters in

Christchurch, with two

other men, on August 15

and September 9 this year.

He also faces a new

charge that between

October 9 and November

2, he supplied a class A

controlled drug, namely

methamphetamine, which

carries a maximum sentence

of life imprisonment.

Lumsden, whose address

on charging documents

state he is living in the

Whangarei district.

While Dunedin Airport’s

toilets were ranked

the best, those travelling

through the terminal were

the least likely to enjoy the

experience. Flight delays

were also the most likely

to affect Dunedin Airport

flyers, with 83 per cent

reporting this.

Nathan Graham, Regional

Sales Manager at

Cheapflights ANZ, said

New Zealanders were

generally content with the

big terminals across the

country.

Man on HIV unprotected sex charges

Defence counsel

Elizabeth Bulger asked for

Lumsden’s attendance to

be excused.

She asked for not guilty

pleas to be entered and that

the matter proceed to jury

trial.

Judge Paul Kellar

remanded Lumsden on

continued bail to a case

review hearing on March

6, on conditions that he

does not use any form of

social media, not leave the

country, surrender any

passport, and to not apply

for any travel documents.

If your house was

repaired to Government

quake repair guidelines

not the ‘as new’ of most

policies, you may have a

claim against EQC and/

or your insurer.

City supported by Key

THIS PAST week was marked

by John Key’s unexpected

announcement he was resigning

as Prime Minister and would not

seek re-election in Helensville for

the 2017 election.

For the past eight years, he has

been an extremely effective leader

for New Zealand.

There will be much written

about his tenure as Prime Minister

in the years ahead and I’m

confident the historical analysis of

his time on the ninth floor of the

Beehive will see him heralded as

one of the great prime ministers

of New Zealand.

Of course, you would expect

me to say that but I think it’s

worth reflecting on the condition

John Key found the country in

upon assuming office compared

to the state he leaves it in.

In 2008, the Global Financial

Crisis crippled the world and

tipped New Zealand into recessions

before most other countries.

Projected surpluses and Government

funds were quickly reversed

to very substantial deficits

with little light on the horizon.

Conventional economic wisdom

would have said: “Slash and

burn expenditure,” but John Key

said no. He said doing so would

hurt too many people.

He led the Government boldly

into a borrowing programme

based upon strength of the national

balance sheet.

We did not have mass unemployment.

We did not have economic

decline and, while nobody

is happy that there are still too

many people who live in difficult

circumstances, we did not see the

social degradation that can occur

when the Government closes its

chequebook.

It was his care and concern

for people and ability to instill

unwavering confidence that has

seen the New Zealand economy

Gerry Brownlee

grow and prosper over the past

years.

This has happened in spite of

the challenges of the Christchurch

earthquakes and the bottom falling

out of the dairy commodity

market.

New Zealand’s economy is far

more robust and diverse today

than in the past.

John Key’s optimism and common

sense approach was evident

in response to the Christchurch

earthquakes from the

wage subsidy, accommodation

payments, red zone buyout, education

and health rebuilds to the

east and south frames, John Key

was unstinting in his support for

the city he grew up in.

It’s been a great privilege to

work with him and serve alongside

him. I hope he enjoys the

next phase of his life, which may

be just as successful.

Gerry Brownlee is

Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

We said:

A Confederate flag that

flew on the Santa Parade’s

Dukes of Hazzard float was

removed after a complaint

it had ties to white

supremacy. Christchurch

Santa Parade Trust

received an email from a

couple who said the flag

was ‘highly inappropriate’

and ‘culturally insensitive.’

You said:

Lee Nicholls – What’s the

difference between that flag and

the Maori tino rangatiratanga

flag? Both are based on racially

prejudiced ethnocentric views.

Susan Lightbown – For

heaven’s sake people . . . stop

looking for fault in everything.

We have a neighbour who flies

that flag, it doesn’t worry us . . .

and I have seen a lot of different

flags being flown in gardens.

For example, is the Japanese flag

not to be flown because of the

war? You really should get a life,

then you won’t even have time to

think of these stupid racist ideas.

Racism will never die as long as

there are people like you in the

world.

Heather Knox – Good point,

that flag is a symbol of white

supremacism and should not be

flown. And the fact that this is an

event for children makes it even

more important that the flag is

not flown – why would we raise

a new generation of people with

the idea that white supremacism

is normal and natural?

Maria Mann – Only one

couple complains and you listen,

wow wish the ccc was like that.

Greg Sutherland – This is

just ridiculous, the confederate

flag is The Dukes of Hazzard so it

kind of ruins the float but at least

the trust was at least gracious

enough to let the float go on

just without the flag. The people

who complained could’ve just

not gone to the parade but no,

they have to ruin it for everyone,

specifically people involved with

the float.

Ricky Brett – The flag is part

of history, our kids get taught all

about it, the flag should be there

as a representation of how much

the world has changed.

Alan Dawson – By you making

a big deal out of this you are

now bringing politics into it. Just

because one couple send through

a email people buckle like butter

We said:

There are warnings

patients at Christchurch

hospitals could be at risk,

as a growing number of

hospital staff say they face

an excessive workload and

do not feel valued. The Star

has obtained the results

of the Canterbury District

Health Board’s latest staff

wellbeing survey, which

showed more than 90 per

cent of staff felt stressed

because of pressures at

work.

You said:

Nelson Yorke – I guess this

is what happens when funding

gets cut from essential services.

I wonder how this will be sorted

out?

Mandy Stace – This is so

shameful how Nurses continue to

be undervalued, under-resourced

and unsupported by Government.

It breaks my heart to hear

this and to know how hard these

amazing people work. To care for

others can be incredibly stressful

even in perfect conditions let

alone in an environment that is

damaged and continues to be

rocked by earthquakes. I don’t

know how they do it. Amazing,

incredible people.

Dinah Jane Geda – This is

not good. The whole healthcare

team on any ward is an essential

engine which must be nourished.

Nurses, you are doing an incredible

job under stressful conditions

and I’m sure most patients realise

this. It’s the people sitting behind

the desks that have to get behind

you! To them: be proactive and

help out! Christchurch needs an

energised and positive healthcare

workforce not a depleted, exhausted

one.

Dedication acknowledged

JOHN KEY’S resignation on

Monday is the kind of event that

proves the tired old cliché that a

week is a long time in politics.

No one saw it coming and

it has earned acres of column

space speculating on why

and what happens next. Well

the short answer to that is on

Monday, the National MPs will

hold a special caucus meeting

and they will elect a new Prime

Minister.

I wish John Key well with the

next chapter in his life. Politics

is a tough life and is even

tougher on politicians’ families.

I do not think it will come as a

shock to any regular readers of

my column to hear that I don’t

agree with many of John Key’s

political positions, but I do

acknowledge the dedication he

brought to the role.

With at least three contenders

slugging it out at the time of

writing, the only thing that is

certain is that by Monday evening

we will have a new Prime

Minister.

While this is a massive

change, the issues in this country

won’t change at all. New

Zealanders will still be facing a

crisis in housing, and a health

system with $1.7 billion stripped

out of it that is failing many and

particularly our elderly. Parents

are increasingly being asked to

dig into their already stretched

pockets to prop up a public education

system that is woefully

under-resourced.

Add to that too many New

Zealanders are unable to find

decent work, and crime rates

are rising. And of course here in

Canterbury, thousands of people

are still waiting more than six

years on to put their lives back

together and finally have their

earthquake repairs carried out.

This is a Government that has

focused on the short term. They

are more concerned about the

immediate news cycle and have

failed to put together a plan for

the future.

Labour has taken the opposite

approach – we have put together

a plan to build houses, fund

health and education, put more

police on the beat and finally fix

Cantabrians’ homes.

We are ready to govern. We

are ready to win in 2017. We

proved that last Saturday with

a colossal win in the Mt Roskill

by-election.

Course to boost survival

chances in an earthquake

• By Bridget Rutherford

A FREE course to help

people respond mentally

and physically after an

earthquake is being

offered in Christchurch.

Ben Logan and Dr Greg

Emerson, who run wilderness

survival courses

through their Wanaka

company New Age Primal

will take three, two-hour

sessions on Saturday.

The free course, which

will run at Bottle Lake

Forest, will cover emergency

first aid, mental

and physical resilience

training, survival mindset

strategies, developing an

earthquake action plan

and situational awareness.

Mr Logan said they

decided to run the free

course to help Cantabrians

following the 7.8 magnitude

earthquake that hit

Kaikoura and North Canterbury

on November 14.

He said there were still

some spaces available,

however, there would be a

maximum of 50 people in

each session.

He was not impacted

WHAT TO DO: Wilderness survival company New

Age Primal is running a free earthquake survival

course in Christchurch on Saturday. ​

by that earthquake, or the

September 2010 and February

2011 earthquakes,

however, he knew people

who were.

“I wasn’t directly impacted,

but I’ve got a lot of

friends who were deeply.”

He said originally, they

had planned on doing one

free course, but there was so

much interest, they decided

to do three shorter ones.

Both he and Dr Emerson

run survival courses near

Wanaka, and have trained

emergency services personnel

and the Australian

Special Air Service.

But a lot of what they do

relates to an earthquake

situation, he said.

Mr Logan said the whole

idea of the free course was

to make sure people know

what do in a earthquake,

and how to react.

They will also be taking

donations on the

day, to go towards New

Zealand Women’s Refuge’s

Christchurch offices.

O Christmas tree

Melissa McDonnell

SELECTION:

The perfect

tree now sits

decorated in

the corner of

the lounge.

AS HAS been our family

tradition for a number

of years now, December

1 marked the first day

of the festive season and

the cutting down of our

Christmas tree.

We met up with a couple

of other families late

afternoon and headed to

the local Christmas tree

park. The kids excitedly

disappeared into the forest

and scrimmaged through

the branches, moving from

tree to tree so to find the

perfect one. After much

talk of shape, height and

bushiness, we tied a ribbon

around our favourite tree

and called in the cutter.

Soon enough we were

home and our new project

was hauled into the house.

After bucketing, stabilising

and weighing it down,

we let our four girls get

to work. I ceremoniously

dumped decorations at the

foot of the tree, turned up

the Christmas carols and

watched the carnage unfold.

Although it would be

nice to have one of those

perfectly shaped, colour coordinated

and symmetrical

trees you see in the movies,

that just doesn't happen in

our household. Especially

given the exuberance of

four creative kids who each

have their own unique approach

as to how it should

be done.

There was no planning

whatsoever as each piece

was excitedly attached/

twisted/hurled onto the

tree with reckless, decorative

abandon. They worked

their little hands into,

around, under and behind

each branch to beautifully

transition the tree into it's

now twinkling, brilliant

glory.

Yet with a good mixture

of stock-standard silver

and red baubles, stars and

angels, and a plethora of bespoke

pieces that have been

lovingly hand-crafted over

years, our perfectly imperfect

tree now sits pride and

place in the corner of our

lounge.

And so the countdown

to Christmas is officially

on. We're now well into

our 24 days of advent

calendars, Christmas

Elf antics, Santa Clause

and sleigh apps, present

shopping, visiting the Big

Man himself, and generally

juggling the downward

slide until the end of the

school term.

Wishing you and yours

lots of fun, health and

happiness in the lead up

to Christmas, in whatever

way, shape or form that this

may take.

Byron Coll

Our People

Meet Richie and Dan’s little mate

Actor Byron Coll, best known as All Black

super-fan Tim in the Mastercard ads, is a

Cantabrian who once played rep rugby as a

schoolboy. He talks to Jennifer Dann

Making those Mastercard

ads, did you find it hard to be

a total dick in front of your

childhood heroes?

No, Tim might be annoying

as hell but he’s such a positive

character. And to make someone

like Richie McCaw laugh at

you is pretty awesome. After we

made the first ad, Dan Carter

phoned me and said: “Some of

the guys have been giving me

s**t about being your roommate.

Could you help me get them

back by busting into our team

meeting and embarrassing the

crap out of them?” I couldn’t

turn Dan Carter down so I

turned up at the Heritage Hotel

where a huge security guard took

me through all these corridors

and then pushed me into a room

and shut the door. I found myself

staring at all the All Blacks, the

coaches, the medical staff. I s**t

myself. I had no idea what to do

so I just yelled “fellas!” at the

top of my voice. They all turned

round and gave this massive

cheer. I went round hugging

everyone.

Did you manage to embarrass

any All Blacks?

Dan told me to ask for

Shag, which is apparently the

nickname for Steve Hansen.

I don’t know why, I think it’s

a little bit dodgy because not

many people are allowed to call

him that so I yelled out “where’s

Shag?” He stands up at the back

of the room and goes, “I’m Shag.”

I sprinted up and jumped on

him from about 2m away. He

gave me a huge bear hug, carried

me on stage and thanked me for

supporting the team. Everyone

was going nuts. They gave me

a signed World Cup jersey and

pint of beer to skull. I couldn’t

stick around because the joke

wouldn’t last so I pretended I

was drunk and staggered off.

The whole thing took about

15 minutes. It was such a great

feeling.

Do you think the All Blacks

liked your character?

“FELLAS”: Byron Coll appeared in several Mastercard ads with Richie McCaw and Dan Carter.

They did on the first ad. By

the third and fourth he probably

got a bit annoying. Too upbeat, a

little bit crazy. It’s such fast work,

it’s hard to pick at the time. It’s

not until it’s up and running and

people are responding that you

think “maybe that was a bit too

full on.”

Have you ever played rugby?

Yes, I went to a very rugbyorientated

school, St Bede’s.

I actually played for the

Canterbury under-13s as a

hooker. I was small then too.

Then I shifted to halfback until it

got too dangerous. I loved music

and drama but you couldn’t take

them as a subject at St Bede’s.

I had to do 7th form music by

correspondence. The Sheilah

Winn Shakespeare Festival in

Otago changed my path in life. I

found out about it and, with no

formal training, somehow got

selected to go to The Globe in

London.

You’re 32 and have worked

full-time as an actor since

graduating. Has it been hard?

At times. I’ve found more work

since shifting up to Auckland.

There’s more TV being made

here than Wellington. I do a lot

of commercials.

Actor’s super-fan stardom

•From page 27

What has being short

taught you?

I survived childhood by

being the cheeky bugger that

avoids conflict. I had a complex

about my strawberry blonde

hair as well, but then I started

going bald at 20. I didn’t suit

a lot of roles because I looked

either too old or too young.

Do you often find yourself

typecast as the funny guy?

Luckily no. The last three

TV shows I’ve done were dead

serious. I was a conscientious

objector in Field Punishment

No 1, an engineer on Bombshell

The Sinking of the Rainbow

Warrior and a petro-chemical

mogul in Jean, the story of Jean

Batten. I love character roles

because I enjoy exploring the

flaws in people.

You appeared naked

and covered in paint to

play a penguin in the play

Heat. Why didn’t you

at least wear some

underpants?

I questioned that as well

but the director said: “You’re

playing an animal and when

you see a horse or a dog or

whatever, you see the bits.” I

went: “Okay that scares me,

JOKING: Byron Coll appeared naked but body-painted

as a penguin in Heat at the Dunedin Fringe Festival in

2010. PHOTO: ODT

but I’ll see it as a challenge.”

We performed it to a couple of

schools, just drama students,

and there were sniggers at

first but a lot of people told me

that within 10 minutes they

completely forgot I was naked.

They saw me as a penguin,

which was awesome because

it’s hard to play an animal

convincingly.

Did it take long to apply all

that body paint?

I got it down to 1.5 hours.

The stage manager did my

back and I did the rest. I had to

crouch over a hair dryer to dry

my genital area because what

would happen as I warmed

up was the sweat would wipe

the paint off so when I turned

around the audience would

see this big white line between

my cheeks. Getting it all off

again took half an hour. It gets

into every nook and cranny,

inside your ears, under your

fingernails. My girlfriend Kate

Prior, who was in the play too,

helped me remove the paint in

the shower sometimes because

I literally couldn’t get to some

bits.

Did you have a moment of

thinking – “What the hell am

I doing?”

There were many times.

It was the most physically

demanding role I’ve played.

I had to move like a penguin

so I spent the entire time

waddling on my knees. The

only thing I wore were knee

pads and socks to stop the tops

of my feet getting callused.

There was a lot of falling down

but penguins can’t put their

hands out to stop a fall so I was

covered in bruises. By the end

of the seven-month tour I was

down to 64kg and absolutely

stuffed.

You’re about to appear in

NZ Opera’s The Mikado. Have

you done opera before?

No, this will be my first. I

can hold a note, but I probably

can’t sing real opera. Luckily,

it’s a Gilbert and Sullivan

operetta which is a lot easier.

I’ve done a couple of musicals

lately. A Little Shop of Horrors

was a heck of a lot of fun. We

had the old 1960s film up on

screen, muted, while four of us

played an original score live on

stage and did the dialogue at

the same time. My girlfriend

and I both got best actor

nominations for our roles in

Midsummer: A Play with Songs

in Wellington, but I won which

was a bit sad for her.

IT’S A

Summer

Celebration

TOLERANT: Portulaca likes heat and drought so plant it in full sun.

Put on a summer

show with portulaca

• By Henri Ham

IF YOU want to make a

bit of a statement in your

garden this summer, you

can’t go past portulaca.

This striking plant grows

to around 10cm high and

produces beautiful flowers

with layers of fabric-like

petals. It’s perfect for planting

in borders, bedding,

edging, rock gardens, pots

and hanging baskets. And,

if you get some in the

ground soon, it will keep

the show in your garden

running all through summer.

For those wanting to

show off colour in their

garden, you can purchase

mixed bundles but a

BEING IN the fortunate

position of having a neverending

supply of plants at

my disposal, means that

my list of must-have herbs

for the garden is actually

quite long. But if I had

to narrow it down mint

would be right near the top

of the list.

It’s great in summer

drinks and salads, mint

sauce on a roast, dips and

more. But just, if not more,

importantly it’s very easy

to grow and maintain. In

fact, sometimes it can be

too easy to grow and take

over your garden. Which is

why I always recommend

growing it in a pot – even

if you’re planting in a garden

bed.

If you’re only after one

mint plant, which is often

couple of the favourites

are tequila cherry, which

is bright pink, and tequila

yellow.

Because portulaca tolerates

heat and drought so

well, it pays to plant it

in full sun. It grows very

nicely next to livingstone

daisies or gazania as they

are all fans of the sun and

they all grow to similar

heights.

Plant each seedling

around 25cm apart from

the next.

Portulaca looks lovely

when grown in a basket

with petunia – particularly

varieties like red crystal

and primetime violet star.

And the great thing about

using hanging baskets or

FRESH: Mint is easy

to grow and maintain.

Planting in pots is best.

the case when buying

herbs, try a mixed bundle

like italian flat leaf parsley

or a mint and marjoram

bundle.

planters like the paradise

planter is you can move

the show of colour around

wherever and whenever

you want.

Once everything is

planted you can expect to

see flowers in around four

to five weeks. You won’t

need to water portulaca

very often, but just keep

an eye on the soil. If you

stick your finger in the soil

to about your first knuckle

and it’s dry, it pays to give

them a bit of a drink.

Lastly, if you want the

show to continue all summer,

pick off the deadheads.

This will encourage

your plants to keep flowering

– and it will make your

plant look better.

Mint is a must-have

• By Henri Ham

If you’re going to take

the risk and plant directly

into your garden bed, it’s a

good idea to apply a general

fertiliser to the garden

before planting. If you’re

going to grow your mint

in a pot, simply use a good

quality potting mix. Dig a

small hole, pop your mint

seedling in and cover the

roots with soil.

If you’re putting a pot

in your garden, dig a hole

large enough for the lip of

the pot to be even with the

ground. Pop your pot in

and fill in around the pot

with soil. This will keep

the roots of your mint

contained and stop it from

taking over the garden.

Once planted, keep the

soil moist. In just a few

weeks you should be able

to start picking mint leaves

as you require them.

Saffron

Saffron is the gold of cuisine, this exotic

and expensive spice is both captivating

and intriguing, and now you can grow

your own.

Preparation

Dig beds to a depth of 15-20cm and

incorporate Oderings Compost. Fertilise

beds after planting the bulb with Tui

Bulb fertiliser, but if you want to get more

specific, a magic combination can be found

in our gardening guide online.

Planting

Corms are planted 10cm deep, 10cm apart.

Water in with a liquid fertiliser containing

seaweed, fish emulsion and Trichoderma,

‘Fish & Seaweed Growth Booster’ by

Egmont’s Commercial has all three of these

ingredients. This product is an essential part

of your saffron maintenance.

Harvesting

Flowers and leaves can appear from the

last week of March into May over a four

week period, this is brought on by the first

rains towards the end of March. Flowers

need to be picked every morning as early

as possible. Flowers that are proud of the

ground and showing a part off the stem can

be picked. Use your thumb and first finger

and slightly twist. Each corm can produce

up to six flowers over the flowering period.

The amount of flowers increases each

season for a number of years and then

decreases as the corms get overcrowded and

compete for nutrition. Dig corms up every

three to four years and re-plant.

Flower Processing

The flower has three parts; the petals which

are purple, the stamen which is yellow and

the stigma which is orange to maroon (and

has three prongs). The stigmas are removed

a variety of ways. Generally, it’s easiest to

hold the stigma with the fingers of your left

hand and pinch the bottom of the flower

with the finger nails of your right hand,

(and the flower falls to pieces) leaving the

stigma in the left hand which is then placed

on a drying tray in a straight position.

Stigmas are dried for 2 hours at 65 °C in

a dehydrator. Remove from the dehydrator

and store in an airtight container.

Gardening Advice

with

QUESTION

I wondered if you could give me some advice on a lilac bush. I would

really like one in my garden but do not know much about them. I would

like a bush, not a big tree as I don’t have the room. What soil do they

like and would one grow here in Aranui? My soil is not sandy at all.

I love the garden questions and answers as they are a great help.

Congratulations!

Today’s winning

question came from

Bev McIntosh

ANSWER

There should be no problems growing lilacs in your part of Christchurch. They prefer a position in full

sun with a free draining soil. If your soil is heavy, then add in Daltons Compost and mix well with

existing soil. This will help with drainage and give the plant the best start. Rather unusually, lilacs

prefer an alkaline soil which is not that common in New Zealand and therefore respond to an annual

side dressing of lime. Mulch during the summer months and water at regular intervals until the plant

becomes well established.

While lilacs can grow to a considerable size, they can be easily pruned to maintain an optimum height

of around 2.5 metres. They should be pruned immediately after flowering. Lilacs flower in spring with

a superb fragrance and they can usually be purchased from garden centres in winter. The ‘classic

lilac’ is coloured as the name suggests, however with various hybrid varieties now available, you can

get ones with red, purple, white or pink flowers.

FOLLOWING A ‘tumultuous’

November of rain, gale winds,

frosts, high temperatures and

scary earthquakes in some

parts of the country, hopefully

December will bring a more

settled summer month in the

garden.

Summer salad vegetables

should all be making rapid

growth by now. Apply side dressings

of fertiliser to help maintain

development of these plants.

With quick maturing crops, continue

succession planting.

Try to avoid crops maturing at

the same time and in the early

January period when many of us

are away on holiday.

As soil begins to dry, plan

your irrigation program that will

encourage strong plant growth,

while avoiding wasting water,

and dont forget to mulch!

Hopefully, early planted

potatoes can be harvested for

Christmas Day. Remember to

mound up around plants as they

mature.

The first beans planted should

also now be ready for harvesting.

With tomato plants, continue to

which are vigorous growers.

This is probably the prime

month for harvesting strawberries

in home gardens.

Cover plants with bird netting

to avoid sharing the crops with

feathered friends. Place pea

straw or crushed bark around

plants to provide a clean bed for

ripening strawberries and keep

a close watch for Botrytis (grey

mould).

If spotted, remove fruit or

leaves immediately. To help the

prevention of pathogens such

as grey mould, apply fungicide

granules or powder. If looked

after well, you should be picking

strawberries well into January.

Early stone fruit will start to

ripen toward the end of December

with some fruit trees needing

a little fruit thinning and

removal of some new growth to

help promote heavy cropping.

Newly planted fruit trees

require regular watering to help

promote strong vigorous growth.

HARVEST:

The

vegetable

garden

should now

be producing

bounty.

Keep flowers

moist in the

morning to

produce full

blooms.

All fruit trees should be mulched

to reduce water loss as soils

begin to dry.

Boysenberries, black currants,

gooseberries and raspberries

should be ready for harvesting by

mid-December. These plants will

also be developing new canes that

should be tied down or removed

when there are too many.

It is important to continue

‘dead heading’ roses (removal

of finished flowers). This will

encourage continuous flowering.

Side dressings of fertiliser should

be applied at regular intervals

to help maintain strong healthy

growth. Some summer pruning

may be necessary, especially with

some varieties where growth is

excessive and can lead to wind

damage.

Check your rose bushes regularly

for outbreaks of blackspot

and rust, and instigate a regular

spraying programme to control

these diseases.

Lawns will begin drying out

and require some irrigation

to maintain full ‘health’. Avoid

mowing lawns too low over the

summer months and avoid applying

lawn fertiliser during this

time. Where bare patches may

develop, they should be re-sown

in the cooler autumn months.

As most herbs grow very rapidly

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

CHRISTMAS HAM

Ingredients

1 whole bone-in ham

About 70 whole cloves

Brown sugar glaze

1/2 cup soft brown sugar

1/4 cup maple syrup or golden

syrup

1/4 cup rum, pineapple juice or

apple juice

Directions

Preheat oven to 150 deg C.

Place ham on a large oven tray

until skin starts to peel away.

While the ham is warming, mix

together ingredients required for

the brown sugar glaze.

Remove ham from oven and

increase temperature to 180 deg

C. Gently remove skin from

ham, leaving the fat to remain.

Discard skin.

Lightly score the fat into

diagonal crosshatches. Insert

cloves at point of intersection.

Brush ham with brown sugar

glaze and bake until golden. This

should take roughly an hour,

basting with remaining glaze if

desired. Serve.

PAN-FRIED TARAKIHI,

JERSEY BENNES AND

WARM CHIVE BUTTER

Ingredients

2 cups Potatoes, Jersey Benne

variety, scrubbed

75g Unsalted butter, chilled, cut

into 1cm cubes

40ml Olive oil

2 Tarakihi fillets, 180-200g each,

preferably with skin on

¼ cup Chives, finely chopped

1 Lemon, cut into wedges,

optional

1 to serve Salad greens

Directions

Place potatoes in a small

pot. Cover with cold water and

simmer until tender. Remove

from heat and leave potatoes

in their cooking water to keep

warm.

Place a tablespoon of water

into a small pot and bring to the

boil. Turn off the heat and whisk

in butter, a couple of cubes at a

time. The heat remaining in the

pot will allow you to be able to

emulsify the butter into a sauce

without it splitting. Place sauce

to one side.

Heat olive oil in a large, heavybased

frying pan over a high

heat. Lightly season tarakihi and

cook, skin-side down, for three

to four minutes until skin is

nicely coloured and fish is twothirds

cooked through. Turn

fish over and cook for a further

minute before turning off the

heat and resting in the pan for a

further two minutes.

Drain potatoes well and

divide between two bowls. Stir

chives into the butter sauce and

spoon half of the sauce over the

potatoes.

Place fish on top of the

potatoes and finish with

remaining chive butter and a

wedge of lemon if desired. Serve

immediately with a side of salad

greens.

Theatre/Arts

Channelling voice into a different direction

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

GOING through adolescence

can be a challenging time for

many, but for Liam Dacombe it

meant he could no longer sing.

“My voice was breaking so I

couldn’t sing. My voice cracked

too much so I was like ‘I want to

do something musical with my

voice that wasn’t singing,’ ” he

said.

But it wasn’t long until the

Burnside High School student

found a silver lining.

Determined to keep up his

musical abilities but unsure

where to turn, the 16-year-old

discovered the art of beat boxing

through American a cappella

group Penatonix.

Three years on, the self-taught

beat boxer is teaching others

the art of vocal percussion,

performing on stage and will

soon release his own electronic

album.

And in his next performance

Dacombe, of Addington, will

beat box for Voices Co – the

city’s only academy specialising

in a cappella.

After training with the

a cappella academy since it

launched in February, Dacombe

PERFORMANCE: Liam Dacombe performing with the city’s only academy specialising in a cappella - Voices Co. He wants to

will beat box for most of the

company’s first Christmas

concert.

The concert will showcase

the academy’s work for the

year featuring a cappella

arrangements of songs including

Silent Night and The Greatest by

Australian singer Sia.

But for Dacombe, his

main goal at the concert is to

encourage others in the city to

pursue beat boxing.

• By Georgia O’Connor-

LIVING WITH a learning

disability, Russell Falcome-

Price, 41, has always struggled

to communicate with other

people.

Tomorrow he will be facing

his biggest fear as he talks in

front of a live audience, as well

as attempting to make them

laugh in his first stand-up

comedy show.

Falcome-Price was diagnosed

with a learning disability

at the age of five and

anxiety and depression three

years ago.

But a year ago, he discovered

comedy, helping him

through his depression and he

soon began to build up a collection

of jokes on Facebook.

He said he soon

received positive

feedback from the

public including from

Harewood councillor

Aaron Keown which

motivated him to get

up in front of a live

audience.

“It is hard to

express myself in a way that

other people can understand

me so I thought if I do a bit of

comedy it will help me get my

words out,” he said.

“I don’t feel like there is a lot

of beat boxers. But definitely

after this show I feel like it will

open up a lot more eyes to realise

it is not just the hip hop or rap

thing,” he said.

He said while he thinks there

is an interest, people are too shy

or get discouraged from making

bad sounds.

“Don’t be afraid to embarrass

yourself when it comes to that

sort of thing. Because everyone

Falcome-Price will now

debut as a comedian under

his new stage name “Rusty”

telling the tales of his first ever

overseas trip to

Australia.

He has been

mentored for the

past few months

by Isaac Theatre

Royal’s business

and artistic development

manager

Andrea Brigden

for the show.

“My best advice to people

who have got depression is

don’t let it get to you, get out

there, even if you do what I do

always gets discouraged when

they start because it sounds bad

. . . I have made some really

dumb sounds but they get

refined over time,” he said.

When Dacombe leaves

school, his goal is to become an

electronic music producer and

digitalise beat boxing into music.

He said he spends most of his

spare time sitting on a computer

making music, which has led to

the creation of his three-track EP

Life turned around through comedy

which is comedy . . . it is recommended

because it takes

away all that stress,” he said.

Up until last year he could

not afford to travel overseas

because he struggled to get

a job due to his learning disability.

After going through several

different jobs Falcome-Price

finally landed a role as a

casual security officer at

year.

Travel

Footloose in the old and new

• By Mike Yardley

FOR MANY Kiwis, Frankfurt is

more likely to be a gateway into

Europe, rather than a banner

destination.

But it absolutely warrants

an exploratory for a couple of

nights, while you shake off the

jet lag.

In spite of being almost completely

decimated during World

War 2, somehow the Dom,

the cathedral, avoided being

bombed. And it’s unquestionably

the most historically significant

landmark in this regal city of old.

The Dom’s official name is

St Bartholomew’s Cathedral, a

heaving pink sandstone Gothic

behemoth, which is where 52

Holy Roman Emperors were

crowned from 1356 onwards.

What I particularly like about

Frankfurt is the harmonious

mingling of old and new, the

ultra-contemporary and the

venerable, co-existing as happy

bed pals.

Medieval structures line the

riverbanks of the Main, backdropped

by glinting skyscrapers

reaching ever higher to the heavens,

giving rise to Frankfurt’s

nickname, “Mainhattan.” (The

city has the biggest concentration

of skyscrapers in continental

Western Europe.)

It was Deutsche Bank that

kicked off the skyscraper craze,

your head as to whether civic heritage, and the city

the gabled roofs and timbered council continues to hold its

meetings here.

Frankfurt’s legacy as a trading

mecca is also steeped in centuries

of tradition. Exhibit A:

The Frankfurt Book Fair. If you

happen to be visiting in mid-

October, take a stroll through

this world-beating extravaganza,

which has been held annually

here ever since the printing press

was designed.

It is quite simply the publication

industry’s biggest event in

the world. The city’s first fairs

and markets were staged over

1000 years ago inside the town

hall and across the cobblestones

of the plaza.

Right now, the Romerberg will

be twinkling with the magic of

fairy lights and wooden chalets,

as the annual Christmas Market

sends spirits soaring.

Like many European cities,

Frankfurt’s downtown shopping

district is heavily pedestrianised.

The Zeil is a 2km-long vehiclefree

promenade that snakes its

way through the heart of city.

I first visited Frankfurt in

2009, and My Zeil, a futuristic

shopping mall had just opened.

Seven years on, it still looks

ultra-modern and currently undergoing

an expansion. Not only

does it have Europe’s longest

escalator, transporting you up

five floors non-stop, but the edgy

interior design is enthralling.

White Heron

Colony - Whataroa

Whataroa is the departure point for

the White Heron Sanctuary Tour. For

over 29 years the Arnold family has been

delighting visitors by sharing this world

class attraction with them.

The tour consists of a short minibus ride

to connect with the company’s jetboat for

a gentle 20 minute scenic cruise into the

Waitangiroto Nature Reserve, (the only

access to this area is by boat).

In the reserve you will disembark from

the boat for a short walk through ancient

Kahikatea rainforest to the purpose-built

viewing hide to observe the magnificent

White Heron (Kotuku) in their natural

nesting environment. The Royal Spoonbill

and the Little Shag also share this special

area and all can be easily seen from the

hide.

The White Heron only use this area

for breeding, so they can be seen during

the spring and summer months, usually

between mid September and early March.

Over the autumn and winter months they

disperse widely throughout New Zealand

and are generally seen as a solitary bird.

The population of White Heron in

New Zealand is approximately 200, so

to see one of these splendid birds is a

rare and special sight and to visit their

only breeding ground is a truly unique

experience.

“White Heron Sanctuary Tours” is the

original and only tour to visit the White

Heron nesting site. Tours operate with a

Department of Conservation concession

and entry is by permit only. Friendly

experienced guides with local knowledge,

so don’t miss this exceptional tour.

improves your arithmetic

HOW TO PLAY

It’s like sudoku: each

vertical and horizontal

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.

Pride prepare for final

• By Gordon Findlater

HOSTING THE National

Women’s League final against

Capital on Sunday is something

the Canterbury United Pride

could only dream about a

fortnight ago.

Going into the final day

of round-robin fixtures on

November 27, the Pride were just

an outside chance of finishing

the regular season in top spot.

They needed to defeat Central

Football and hope that WaiBop

could hold defending champion

Northern Football to at least a

draw.

After being held to a 1-1 draw

by Central, the Pride’s hopes of

hosting a home final were all

but over. It was with little hope

that the team then turned their

attention to the Northern v

WaiBop game.

“We were following it on

Twitter and we saw that

Northern went up by two goals

so we thought it was game over.

We looked later on in the match

and it was 1-0, 2-2, then 3-2 to

WaiBop,” said Pride captain

Annalie Longo.

The massive upset meant the

Pride would not only host a

home final, but get a weekend

off while WaiBop and Capitol

played for the second final spot

last weekend.

better than 2015. After winning

back-to-back titles in 2013 and

2014, the Canterbury team were

defeated by Northern Football in

last year’s final 3-4.

Sunday’s opposition, Capital,

booked their spot in the final

in dramatic fashion defeating

WaiBop 4-2 on penalties last

weekend. The Pride met Capital

on one occasion this year

winning 3-1.

“That result is a big confidence

boost going into the final, but

they’ve improved hugely since

Longo.

stint coaching in England.

Endacott coached Wigan Warriors

from 1999-2001 and was

named Super League’s Coach of

the Year after leading Wigan to a

grand-final appearance.

Clarke was a Kiwi scrum-half

in the late 1960s and made his

mark later as a coach, leading the

young core of players. At 25,

Longo is easily one of the oldest

Pride players. Many in the squad

are still at school, including

14-year-old midfielder Macey

Fraser who scored her first

National Women’s League goal

three weeks ago.

The girls are incredibly young

and it will be the biggest game

that a lot of them have played

in. For me, it’s just about being

composed and relaxed and

ensuring we play our own style

of football. Hopefully, they can

go out there with confidence

and enjoy the occasion,” said

Longo.

recently was the Lexus

LX450d, a large, luxury

four-wheel-drive SUV

based on the Land Cruiser

platform. And realistically,

it is a Land Cruiser 200 in

disguise, it gets all the trick

four-wheel-drive gear along

with all the grandeur that

embodies the Lexus spirit

of luxury, refinement and

sophistication.

The LX has always been

powered by a 5.7-litre V8

petrol engine, but just

recently it has been joined

by a 4.5-litre V8 diesel

which, incidentally, is the

first Lexus diesel offering.

The LX570 lists at

$179,900, and I guess if

you have that amount of

money to spend on a vehicle,

filling regularly with

petrol probably isn’t a disadvantage,

but at $159,900

the diesel variant probably

makes just that little

bit more sense, and it is

still the epitome of luxury

transport off-road, or any

road as the case may be.

Ironically, it was just a

few weeks back that I drove

the Land Cruiser 200 with

exactly the same engine

and driveline. I remarked

then that even though it is

a huge and bulky vehicle,

it doesn’t feel big to drive;

the same can be said for

the LX450d, and it is an

off-road champion like no

other.

The four-wheel-drive

mechanicals and the

electronic systems which

override it are comparable

to the world’s best fourwheel-drive

platforms –

even Range Rover and Jeep

product.

The LX450d has a multitude

of options available at

the driver’s command for

when road (or track) surfaces

vary, they are all dial

or button operated, mostly

from an extensive array on

the centre console, they

are intuitive to use quickly

when grip and traction settings

need altering. There

LEXUS LX450D: Diesel engine is the first for Lexus.

are also comfort, normal

and sport suspension settings.

Lexus rate the 4461cc,

quad-camshaft, 32-valve

V8 at 200kW, with an

amazing 650Nm of torque

available all of the way

from 1600rpm to 2800rpm.

It is a true powerhouse

with an unfaltering flow

of power right through to

the 4500rpm redline. Well,

it needs to be strong, the

450d weighs heavy at over

2500kg, and rated with a

3500kg towing figure there

is a lot of weight to haul

constantly.

• Price – Lexus LX450d,

$159,900

• Dimensions – Length,

5080mm; width,

1980mm; height,

1865mm

• Configuration – V8,

four-wheel-drive,

4661cc, 200kW,

650Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.5sec

• Fuel usage –

9.5l/100km

That aside, the 450d feels

sprightly, it will cut out a

standstill to 100km/h time

of 8.6sec, and will lunge

through a highway overtake

in 5sec; both these

figures I would suggest are

quick for vehicle type.

Drive is transferred

through a six-speed automatic

gearbox, interestingly,

the petrol V8 gets a

flash eight-speeder, but that

matters little, the diesel unit

flows smoothly through

the transmission and it has

quick, fluid shifts which

work well with the power

characteristics.

A stiff southerly

was blowing through

Canterbury during my day

of rural testing, and as big

as the LX450d is, it wasn’t

bothered by the wind gusts,

there’s a lot of sheet metal

down the side of the vehicle

(almost 5.1m) but it

feels firmly planted on the

road and has remarkable

stability.

There is little sensation

in a corner, there is body

roll, but that’s no surprise,

it’s how I would expect it to

be. The LX450d gets a fabulous

ride through a complex

air suspension system,

bearing in mind that it has

to disguise a live rear axle.

Up front the suspension is

more traditional through

a double wishbone system,

but the engineers have created

a plush ride, and that

is something we have come

to expect with Lexus.

The mechanicals are

engineered for life crosscountry.

I didn’t take the

vehicle off-road for fear

of damage, although I did

take it on a long shingle

loop near Hororata, crossing

the Hororata River

through legitimate fords.

The river was barely a

trickle, but it was a good

opportunity to test the

varying four-wheel-drive

options.

As a series, the LX has

just had a major makeover,

it’s a lot more than cosmetic

facelift, the only carryover

panels are the doors.

The interior, too, has had

a major refresh, and all of

the trim elements are true

Lexus with enough cockpit

dials and switches to keep a

Boeing pilot happy.

Column space doesn’t

allow comprehensive

detailing of equipment, but

to say the LX450d misses

out on little. I would have

liked to have seen the rear

passenger compartment

entertainment screens that

are offered on Cruiser VX,

which I can report certainly

keep youngsters entertained

on a long journey.

Nevertheless, the LX

series is a quality piece of

kit all round. It is expensive,

but you certainly

get a lot of vehicle for the

money. It is most certainly

the machine to get you to

the skifield in style.

Lead guests to the front door with adequate lighting to illuminate stairs or other potential

hazards. The simplest and cheapest lighting option is solar-powered landscape lights

which require no wiring, and therefore use no electricity.

Simply place them in a sunny

spot, and when dusk arrives, they

automatically light up. A string of

low-voltage LED lighting is the

perfect solution for brightening a shady bend

along a walkway. It’s a low-cost, easy DIY

solution for illuminating a path.

Use motion-sensing lights to increase

security at night. Install them in key spots

like the garage and side doors where it’s

useful to have light for short periods.

Add drama to the front of your property

by spotlighting a tree or other focal

point in your garden like a flowerbed

or water feature. Uplighting provided

by spotlights accentuates the texture of

tree trunks and creates a beautiful glow

on foliage. Inexpensive rope lighting creates

a great uplighting effect when placed on the

back of landscape bed edging. Roll out the

tube lighting and pin it in place with landscape

staples for a hidden glow. Make sure you

position spotlights away from windows or

your neighbours.

Wall-mount downlights cast a warm, gentle

light on outdoor living spaces. Use them to

enhance texture on stone walls. Plan ahead

when incorporating a light into a wall, leaving

access to wiring for maintenance or repairs.

Enjoy your deck after dark with well-planned

landscape lighting. Set the scene with strings

of fairy lights draped over a pergola or bundled

NEW LISTINGS

into a ball beneath glass domes to make a

luminous table feature. Hang tea lights in glass

jars from tree branches to create a magical

atmosphere while entertaining outdoors in

the evening.

There’s nothing quite like taking a dip in the

pool after the sun goes down. Add spotlights

in and around your pool for safety and enjoy

making the most of swimming not just during

the day.

Make your pond come alive at night with

submerged lighting to illuminate fish and

plants after dark.

We have the pleasure to

invite you to this extensively

renovated three bedroom

house, with north facing

lounge and spacious bedroom.

Well-care, time-matured garden

with wonderful suburban view.

Close to amenities and schools.

IS THERE a lady in

the city who would like

to be spoiled. A lady

that is single, maybe

lonely,maybe on your

own, and would like a

partner to do things with. A

lady who is spontaneous,

well presented, available,

and enjoys the nice things

of life. Perhaps shy and

has never replied to a

newspaper ad before..

Take a chance..write to

Andy P.O. Box 1919,

Christchurch..photo would

be appreciated. All replies

will be answered.

MAN is on a mission to

find a hungry lady (50-
