Easter trading up for discussion

• By Tom Doudney

SELWYN residents and

businesses will be asked to weigh

in on whether trading on Easter

Sunday should be allowed in the

district and if so where.

The community’s views will

inform a report to be provided to

the district council in September

setting out Easter trading options

for it to consider.

A district council report

to tomorrow’s meeting said

“a representative survey of

residents and engagement with

stakeholder groups is considered

appropriate to consult and

involve the community at this

stage of the process.”

The Shop Trading Hours

Amendment Act 2016 has given

councils the power to adopt a

policy enabling shops to trade

within all or parts of their districts

on Easter Sunday.

Since the amendment act

was passed the district council

has received two letters, both

requesting that Easter Sunday

trading not be allowed.

The act already allows dairies,

service centres, pharmacies, take

away food sellers, restaurants,

cafes, souvenir stores, duty free

shops and garden centres to

trade on Easter Sunday.

For those businesses not permitted

to trade, doing so comes

with a fine of up to $1000.

The district council report

said it was unlikely a significant

number of Selwyn retailers not

currently permitted to open on

Easter Sunday would want to, as

many were not open on Sundays

anyway.

“Generally only the major

chain stores (including supermarkets,

The Warehouse and

Hammer Hardware), are open on

Sundays. These stores may wish

to have the option of trading on

Easter Sundays,” the report said.

A region-wide approach with a

single consistent policy covering

Canterbury or the South Island

would be “desirable” but it was

“highly improbable” that all

councils would share the same

view on Easter trading hours.

Leeston Hammer Hardware

owners Jeff and Bronwen Quigley

said they were not sure if they

would open on Easter Sunday if

given the choice and would have

to think about it.

An owner operator of the

Selwyn branch of one major

chain store, who declined to be

identified, said he would be keen

to open on Easter Sunday.

“I think there is demand, I

think people are keen to shop on

days like that,” he said.

SELWYN TIMES

News.......................................3-8

THAT’S ONE very lucky young

guy on page 5 today.

The 19-year-old hit or glanced

off a pole at a speed police estimate

could have been 150 km/h –

and he walked away from it.

He was driving like a madman

just before the crash – and all

because he was late for work.

Slow down son.

We reveal today on page 1 that

the district council is looking at

Easter trading.

It’s an issue which raises its

head every Easter, and there are

good arguments for and against

it.

A major issue is from a tourism

perspective; people who arrive

here from overseas lament the fact

“there’s nothing open.”

The district council will do the

decent thing and go to the public

for feedback with a view for an

outcome for Easter 2018.

Selwyn has got very strong

said.

“We have also seen the

development of more

Urlich returns to the stage

• By Tom Doudney

IT’S BEEN a quiet 18 years for

Margaret Urlich – and that’s

just the way she likes it.

The New Zealand Music and

Aria award-winning singer

hasn’t released new music since

Second Nature in 1999.

Next month, she will perform

with her former When The

Cat’s Away bandmates Annie

Crummer, Debbie Harwood

and another longtime collaborator,

Sharon O’Neill, at Lincoln’s

Selwyn Sounds concert.

They will be part of a starstudded

line up also featuring

Dragon, Mi-Sex, The Jordan

Luck Band and Jason Kerrison.

These days Urlich lives on a

rural property in Australia’s

New South Wales southern

highlands, halfway between

Sydney and Canberra.

Although she never made

a decision to stop recording,

she has been busy over the

last two decades raising two

children, Ava, 18, and Carlos,

15, with husband George

Gorga, and teaching singing in

high schools. She often mentors

young singers before they

sit their university entrance

exams.

Urlich said she didn’t miss

the limelight.

“I quite like being normal.

I only ever started singing

because I just love it. The whole

fame side of it, I didn’t think

about that much and it always

felt a little bit uncomfortable for

me,” she said.

“I don’t need to have a high

profile to be happy. In fact, I

think the opposite is true for

me.”

Although she has been living

across the ditch since the early

1990s, she comes back to play

in New Zealand about five or

six times a year, usually with

Crummer, Harwood, O’Neill

and Shona Laing.

“It’s always very satisfying

going on stage with these

women,” Urlich said.

“I have known Annie and

Debbie for 30 years now and we

are still very good friends and

we love singing together.”

In spite of her long absence

from the recording studio,

Urlich does not rule out new

music in the future, especially

now her children are coming

to the end of their high school

years.

However, the music would

have to meet her own high

standards.

“I still love singing and performing,

but I guess with the

recording side of it, I haven’t felt

that I have the energy to make

it as amazing as I would like to

make it,” she said.

“I am never saying never but

it does take a lot of energy. I just

can’t put out anything that I

think is mediocre.”

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

a return bus ride

between pick up points in

Christchurch or Rolleston

and Lincoln Domain.

OUTSIDE THE SPOTLIGHT:

Margaret Urlich says she

doesn’t miss fame after her

18 year absence from the

recording studio but still

enjoys performing on stage. ​

Driver uninjured in

high-speed crash

Wildlife fire risk

under scrutiny

• By Tom Doudney

A MOTORIST can count

himself lucky to be alive after

crashing into a power pole at

what could have been nearly

150km/h.

The crash happened when the

19-year-old from Christchurch

tried to pass a ute and tractor in

quick succession while driving

along Jones Rd, near the Alston

Rd intersection in Weedons.

When questioned by police the

man said he had been speeding

because he was late for work in

Rolleston. He believed he would

have been going between 130

and 150km/h when he crashed.

Police are now waiting on an

official speed estimation before

deciding whether the charges

laid against him should be for

careless driving or the more

serious dangerous driving.

Sergeant Grant Stewart said

it was miraculous that the

man had walked away without

injuries.

“If he wasn’t wearing a seat

belt I’d say we would be dealing

with a fatality,” Sergeant Stewart

said.

LUCKY: The driver of this car has his seat belt to thank for

say. ​

He said the man had acted

with “total disregard for the

safety of other road users.”

He appeared to have lost control

after hitting the shingle on

the side of the road.

Sergeant Stewart said a court

date in March was likely.

THE ATTITUDES and

behaviours of Selwyn and

Waimakariri lifestyle block

owners in managing wildfire

risk is the focus of new research

for the New Zealand Fire

Service Commission.

Christchurch manager rural

fire Tim Mitchell said feedback

from firefighters around the

country suggested that crews

were having difficulty accessing

properties to put out fires.

This was particularly true for

lifestyle block owners.

“Their entrance ways are

often overgrown or they are too

narrow to get our fire appliances

in. When the truck finally

arrives at the property they

have got firewood stacked up to

their front doorstep, the lawns

at times can be overgrown,” Mr

Mitchell said.

“It makes it very hard for

the Fire Service to do the job

they have been tasked which is

trying to extinguish the fire or

limit the damage.”

People were not picking up

on or putting into practise the

key fire mitigation measures

communicated by authorities

and he had asked the Institute

of Environmental Science and

Research (ESR) to find out why.

“The focus has been on Selwyn

and Waimakariri because

they have quite a high percentage

of lifestyle blocks compared

to other areas around the country

and with ESR being based

in Christchurch it’s handy for

them,” Mr Mitchell said.

Rolleston Fire Chief Nigel

Lilley said access to properties

in particular was a big issue.

“It’s pretty simple, if we can’t

get to the fire, we can’t put it

out,” Mr Lilley said.

Mr Mitchell said if people

wanted to know more about

fire risk and what they could do

to reduce it on their properties

they should contact their local

rural fire authority.

• The research team is

inviting Selwyn residents to

complete an online survey,

open until Monday, or take

part in an interview or focus

group. See www.selwyn.

WORKING TOGETHER: Selwyn Youth Council members and Mayor Sam

Broughton went zip-lining at Christchurch Adventure Park as a team building

exercise. ​

New youth council

ready to roll

Tasty Bites

SELWYN’S NEW youth council has

been appointed and its members are

looking forward to advocating and

working on behalf of the district’s young

people.

The new youth council includes four

returning members from last year – Kusal

Ekanayake (20, Springs Ward), Paige

Money

Sullivan (16, Selwyn Central Ward),

Harrison Crossley (16, Springs Ward) and

Ella McClure (17, Ellesmere Ward).

New members are Georgia Watson (17,

Malvern), Michelle Bruce (15, Malvern),

Harry Mayo (16, Selwyn Central), Olivia

Duder (14, Selwyn Central), Gabriel

Clarke (16, Selwyn Central), Maria

Mendoza-Nieto (15, Springs), Maisie

Wood (16, Springs) and Katelyn Twiss (14,

Ellesmere).

Youth council members had a team

building exercise when they visited

Christchurch Adventure Park with Mayor

Sam Broughton last week and took part

in a zip-lining challenge.

Next month they will visit the YMCA

Wainui Park camp on Banks Peninsula

for an orientation weekend.

A chair for the youth council will be

appointed by the group mid-year, with

Kusal Ekanayake and Paige Sullivan

acting as co-chairs until that time.

New member Gabriel Clarke said it

would be a privilege to help make Selwyn

a community where youth could thrive

and flourish.

“New Zealand values its young people,

and makes wonderful investments in

youth. It’s up to us to respond pro-actively

to the opportunities our community

provides for us,” she said.

“The voice of youth has so much to

offer, and it’s my privilege to channel

those ideas and energy.”

Mr Broughton said the youth council

was a reminder that Selwyn is full of great

young people who are keen to contribute

to the community.

“I look forward to working with them

and seeing them develop over the year,”

Mr Broughton said.

Wilton Atkins

Developing young talent and

Tennis player and coach Wilton Atkins of Rolleston,

spoke to Tom Doudney about working with promising

young players, competing on the university tennis circuit

in the United States and his career in real estate

ON A ROLL: Wilton Atkins has won the Ellesmere

singles championships title three times in a row.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

Before you became a real estate

agent had you had anything else in

the way of a career?

I spent four and a half years in

America playing tennis and going

to university over there in my early

20s. I studied kinesiology (study of

body movement) in sports medicine

and was there playing university

tennis throughout the US.

That must have been pretty cool?

It was a really great experience

and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment

of it.

Did you get over there on a tennis

scholarship?

Yes, that was over in New Mexico

and we travelled all over the state.

I take it you must have been a

pretty promising junior to get

picked up for that?

Yeah, I was okay. I wasn’t a superstar,

but I was good enough to

get a scholarship at a pretty decent

university.

Before that, had you done

anything like winning a title or

anything like that?

I was ranked in the top 10 for

New Zealand under-18s and we sent

YOUNG GUN: Promising

13-year-old Nathan McKenzie is

coached by Wilton Atkins.

video footage of me playing a match

to the coaches in the US and that got

me the scholarship. But no, I didn’t

win any national titles or anything

like that.

Did you have ambitions to play at

a really high level in New Zealand

tennis?

I did, definitely. That was the goal,

but it just didn’t quite get to that

level. It’s a very competitive sport.

The highest I got was division two

tennis over in the US. I came back

and just do some coaching these

days. I’ve got a couple of young fellows

in Ellesmere (Nathan McKenzie,

of Southbridge, and Ben Smith,

of Irwell) that I coach and mentor

who are playing a lot better at that

level than I did at their age. So they

are on a pathway that is ahead of

what mine was. So at the moment, I

am just trying to give them the opportunities

that they might want to

take in the future.

So you reckon that these guys

could be even more promising than

you were?

Yes – at their age they are a lot

further ahead than what I was technically

and skill-wise.

How far do you think they could

go?

They could get a division one

scholarship in US, if that’s what

they want to do. It depends how

they develop, but you never

know, they could have a crack at

professional tennis, but it’s too early

to tell, they’re just 12 and 13 at the

moment.

In terms of your own game,

where do you play your tennis

these days?

I don’t play much at all but I do

go out and do the Ellesmere singles

championships once a year, just to

defend the title.

Congratulations to the

Establishment Board of Trustees

and staff on the opening of

Lemonwood Grove Primary School.

We thank you and your community for the valuable contribution

you have made supporting this development.

Welcome to the Canterbury Education Network.

selling real estate

I won that the last three years

in a row. I play a bit of social

doubles in Selwyn as well on

Tuesday nights. So I just play for

fun now which is great.

Will you just keep playing

the Ellesmere singles

championships until someone

beats you for the title?

Yes, I think it’s a good

tournament to play just for the

fact that it has been going since

pre-World War 2 so you have got

to honour those sort of trophies.

But I would like to keep playing,

I’m definitely not going to keep

winning it, there are a lot of good

kids that will come up and take

me out.

I know Nathan McKenzie

has been going well playing

guys much older than him and

beating them. Have you ever

met him in a match?

I have never met him. I

actually played doubles with

him in the Ellesmere doubles

championships this year and

we made it to the final, which

we lost to a Springston and

Rolleston pair.

How did you get into

coaching McKenzie and Smith?

I was writing an article about

tennis tips and then they called

me up.

How long have you been in

the real estate business?

Three years.

What type of properties do

you sell?

It’s not really the type of properties,

it’s more the location. I

focus on the Selwyn district and

I can market anything through

from a house, lifestyle block, to

a farm.

How did you get into the real

estate business?

I actually got offered a scholarship

with PGG Wrightson three

years ago and I’ve been with

them ever since. The reason I

chose it was that I enjoy helping

people and I think my skills

align well with that. In real

estate, they need someone who

can talk to people straight and

that’s how I operate and what I

try to do.

So is developing that trust

and being straight up with

people important for you?

Yes it is, definitely in an area

like Selwyn. The people aren’t

going to respond to a salesy

salesman and a lot of my clients

really like the fact that it’s not

like talking to a salesman, it’s

more like an open discussion

and that’s why I enjoy doing it

and it seems to be paying off.

COMPETITION: Wilton Atkins played university tennis in the US

for four and a half years. Valu Fa was his doubles partner.

How did you get the scholarship

with PGG Wrightson?

It was a nationwide scholarship

and I saw it advertised so

I thought I’d give it a shot and

went through an interview

process.

What were you doing when

you applied for the scholarship?

I was a farmer working on our

family dairy and sheep and beef

farm in Palmerston North and

I was also a tennis coach on the

side as well.

Has it been an easy or hard

transition to make?

It’s a slow burn. You need

to build your reputation and

it doesn’t happen over night. I

wouldn’t say it’s easy, but I would

say it’s going well. You need to be

patient.

Do you know how many people

applied for the scholarship

you got?

There would have been about

100 nationwide and four people

across the country got one.

Do you have a wife and kids?

I have a wife, Merryn, and we

just had a baby, Thatcher, who is

three-months-old.

What inspired you to call him

Thatcher?

We both just liked it and it’s

a little bit different and we both

have slightly different names

ourselves.

Apart from tennis, do you

have any other hobbies or

interests you are into at the

moment?

Actually, Merryn and I have

an online TV channel that we

do. It’s called Selwyn TV. We

have a website – www.selwyntv.

co.nz – and it’s got a Facebook

page. What we do is we talk to

people about community interest

stories in the Selwyn district. We

are speaking to people like nonprofit

charities, non-sporting

people that are doing really cool

stuff in Selwyn. So that’s a bit of

a hobby for us. We get some of

our content from your articles.

How long has that been going

and how did it start?

It has only been going for

two or three weeks and the idea

behind that was that we want

to raise Thatcher in a close knit

community, where people know

what is going on because we are

both from small towns ourselves.

We are interested in the people

we are talking to and we want to

help promote them.

Your Local Views

Focused on individual

learning ews needs

Lemonwood

Grove School

principal Sean

Bailey writes

about the

importance

ashion

of

making sure

each pupil’s

unique learning needs are

met and what his school

will do to achieve this.

OUR VISION at Lemonwood

Grove School can be described as

‘the best of you as you.’

Gardening

Our intention is that all

learners our community

including teachers and parents

will strive to be the best they

possibly can be through being

engaged and included in the

learning experiences that take

place at Lemonwood Grove.

The establishment board and

staff have used a model called

the Golden

otoring

Circle, widely used

in education, determine key

curriculum decisions. Every

decision we have made and

will continue to make around

our teaching and learning

programmes will start with

the question ‘why?’ which

determines our purpose, cause

and beliefs.

One of the key areas we will

continue to focus on is student structures and strategies we will

looked closely at research and

observed settings in New Zealand

and overseas where learners

are engaged and motivated and

as a result are achieving personal

success.

A number of the programmes,

asty Bites

engagement, motivation and put into place will focus on iden-

enjoyment for learning. Too

often we see examples of pupils

who don’t like school and what

they are learning. We as educators

need to stop and ask the big

question why this is. Research

tells us that

oney

a lot of the time it is

because the learning does not fit

the learner and his or her needs.

Our leadership team have

tifying individual learning styles

and interests and then pitching

our programmes around what

works best for each pupil.

One of the messages we want

to get across to our students

is that learning and life can

be challenging at times, it can

also be messy and uncertain.

Through our four values we will

focus on skills around persistence

and not giving up, taking

responsibility for what we say

and do, acting with integrity and

using a number of thinking skills

and tools to help us learn.

We are introducing a number

of approaches that will ensure

our learners make the very

best of the time they spend at

Lemonwood Grove each day.

These include shortened learning

sessions with regular breaks,

opportunities to explore passions

and interests, exposure to experiences

that encourage creation,

problem solving and allowing

new knowledge to be created. We

will also be blending ICT across

all learning areas.

We have employed an amazing

team of teachers who have experience

in collaborative environments

and can work with all age

groups.

Our spaces have been designed

to cater for individual and

group needs. Each day pupils

and teachers will move around

their learning landscape and

take part in workshops related

to what they need to be learning

at any given time. Their progress

and achievement will be closely

monitored and reported to

parents.

Ian H Duff, of Lansdowne

– It is pleasing to note that

2016 ended with local good

news that Central Plains Water

had repaid nearly $7 million

principal and some interest

on the unsecured loan funded

by Selwyn ratepayers (Selwyn

Times, December 20).

However, the self

congratulatory spin from the

district council chose to omit

the bad news. In November

2015 the stated interest rate

was 10 per cent, reflecting

the absence of tangible asset

security on the loan but it

appears that actual interest

paid was only about one third

of that.

The bigger bad news is of

course that the risky loan

appears to have been replaced

or repaid by the taxpayers of

NZ as a whole in a smoke and

mirrors job using a Crown

entity known as the Irrigation

Acceleration Fund. The

announcement by Minister

Nathan Guy on May 18 last

year was “through the MPI

Irrigation Acceleration Fund,

up to $6.64 million has been

allocated to CPW to support

completion of stage 2 of its

scheme’s development as well

as $898,000 for the Sheffield

Irrigation Scheme (a subscheme

of CPW).” In other

words, a handout of $7.538

million to the shareholders of a

company.

IAF was one of the entities

established using $400 million

of spoils from the sale of hydro

dams etc. that we thought we

already owned and had paid for

over many decades.

Government spin keeps

telling the world, and us,

that we have clean, green,

unsubsidised agriculture in

New Zealand. Clean and green

have been bunkum for years but

this payment in excess of $7.5

million to CPW shareholders

is inescapably a subsidy to

agriculture and is typical of the

neo-liberal way of doing things.

Privatise what was in the public

domain for private privilege

and profit; socialise debt, risk

and loss.

A borrowed theme still

sums up this loan. Never in

the history of inappropriate

corporate welfare by a local

authority has the burden of risk

and loss been borne by so many,

for the benefit of so few.

District council chief

executive David Ward

responds – Following an

appropriate consultation

process, the district council

advanced funds to CPW to

assist with the design phase of

its stage 2 development.

The sums of money advanced

were over short periods of time

during 2016. An interest rate

of 10 per cent per annum was

charged on the sums advanced,

however the loan sums were

only drawn down for a short

period before being repaid.

CPW fully repaid the sum

advanced, including the legal

and professional costs related

to evaluating the loan proposal

(not including the audit fee) and

interest of 10 per cent prior to

Christmas.

Central Plains Water chief

executive Derek Crombie

responds – CPW borrowed

the money from the district

council to complete the design

of the stage 2 and Sheffield

components of the scheme

and as part of that process to

secure funding to construct and

operate those stages and it was

always intended to repay the

loan from the future funding

raise.

The district council loan was

repaid in full in December

from shareholder equity

so there is no Government

funding involved in the

repayment.

The reason that the interest

is less than 10 per cent of the

sum borrowed is twofold. The

10 per cent interest was the rate

per annum based on the sum

actually borrowed and we did

not borrow all of the funds for

the full year. District council

borrowing was drawn to match

the expenditure on the project

so the average sum borrowed

was less than half the total and

it was not for a full year.

I hope this clarifies the issue.

John Summers, of Southbridge –

Mayor Sam Broughton’s assertion that

Central Plains Water repayment of its loan

proves that the district council’s decision

to lend was well founded is total tosh!

If I borrow from ratepayers for a day at

the race track and come out on top I could

make the same ridiculous claim.

District council chief executive David

Ward described the loan as high risk

and having dire repercussions if it wasn’t

repaid – that is to say higher rates and/or

reduced services.

My understanding is that the scheme

has been reduced to irrigate 8000 fewer

hectares than originally proposed ostensibly

to make the scheme more profitable

but it’s common knowledge that the water

at $900 is too expensive and take up of

shares poor.

Why should we mugs of ratepayers be

lending to what is a private enterprise

(that’s what banks are for) especially as we

already subsidise it through our taxes –

that is the Crown Irrigation Fund.

As he introduced himself to the district

the newly elected mayor said he believed

in justice. Where lies the justice in

stretched ratepayers often on fixed incomes

having their rate money put at risk

to enrich landowners?

Rather than trotting out clichés about

benefits let the mayor identify a specific

advantage that will derive to this or other

fixed low income ratepayers in Selwyn.

Mayor Sam Broughton responds –

Thank you John Summers for your letter

to this paper about the district council’s

loan to CPW for design work.

It is my belief that the benefits to the

district go beyond the boundaries of

shareholders’ gates.

We will see fruit in terms of job creation

and the flow on effect this has on activity

in our towns and service sector. Bringing

alpine water onto the plains and replacing

deep ground water extraction has

environmental gains as identified in the

Selwyn Waihora Zone Implementation

Plan.

If council were to receive an application

in the future with benefits of a similar size

and scale then we would look at it based

on the information received as we do with

all community aspirations through our

annual planning process under way over

the next month.

I would be happy to meet with you

if you would like to discuss the matter

further. I can be contacted at sam.

Ultra-Fast

Broadband

network to expand

Five areas in Selwyn will receive Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) under stage two of the government’s

Ultra-Fast Broadband programme. West Melton, Darfield, Leeston, Southbridge and the Lincoln

fringe/Springston area are among 151 towns across New Zealand that will receive ultra-fast

broadband as part of the next stage of the programme. Ultra-fast broadband is already available

in Rolleston, much of Lincoln and is currently being rolled out in Prebbleton.

“We’re pleased that government has responded to requests from local communities to increase its

investment in these areas,” says Mayor Sam Broughton. “Fast broadband access is now essential

tool for many businesses to operate, as well as giving residents better access to a wide range of

services and enabling them to keep in touch with friends and family.”

The new areas were determined by government after Councils were invited to identify priority

areas for improving broadband access. After consulting with local communities in 2015, the

Council requested broadband to be rolled out to Darfield/Kirwee and Leeston/Southbridge and

ultra-fast broadband extended to all of Lincoln and Tai Tapu.

Broadband providers are expected to roll-out coverage to the new areas announced as part of stage

two between 2020 and 2023. More information on the project is available at www.broadband.govt.nz

The Council has also made submissions on improving rural broadband coverage in areas where

existing coverage is poor and for mobile phone coverage to be increased along State Highway 73

and at tourism locations such as ski fields. The government has called for tenders for broadband

providers to undertake rural broadband improvements with tenders closing in April 2017.

Funding supports promising

students

Six senior students from Selwyn have received a tertiary

scholarship from the Council to help fund their studies.

Hannah Long and Duncan Finalyson from Lincoln High School,

Cassian Duthie and Brionne Fleming from Ellesmere College and

Emily De Rooy and Kathryn Barnhill from Darfield High School

were all awarded the 2016 Selwyn District Council Tertiary

Scholarship Award.

Four of the six students are going to Otago University in 2017 to

study Health Science. One of these, Cassian Duthie, hopes to go

on to study oncology and pursue research in cancer treatment.

Darfield High School graduate Kathryn Barnhill is also studying

Health Sciences at Otago and says receiving this scholarship will

help her a lot. “Receiving this scholarship felt like a huge surprise

and honour given the number of deserving applicants there were,

and I hope to be able to study hard to come away with a degree

that will allow me to give back to our community,” she says.

Hannah Long from Lincoln High School is spending a month

travelling through Europe and America with the UN Youth

Organisation before returning to Christchurch to study a Bachelor

of Arts in International Relations and Sociology. Emily De Rooy,

also from Darfield High School will study Human Services at

Canterbury University this year.

Applicants were judged on their contribution to their school and

community, their attitude and academic ability, with decisions

made by a panel including school and Council representatives. The

awards are co-funded by Orion.

On the roads this week

Road repairs will occur on Coaltrack, Hororata, Downs, Leaches, Curve and Waimakariri Roads with

traffic controls operating. Road resurfacing work is planned on Crozier Drive, Windsor Drive and

Thorndon Close in Kiwee. Stop/go traffic controls will operate at all sites. Footpath reconstruction work

is also planned on Kidson Lane and James Street in Lincoln.

The roundabout construction continues at the intersection of Kidman Street, Byron Street and Tennyson

Street. The islands have been poured with the pavement being formed ready for sealing and the

islands infilled. Temporary traffic management controls in place but there will be delays including partial

closures at some times during the remaining construction. People are encouraged to use an alternative

route if possible.

East Maddisons Road is closed from Ellington Mews to Goulds Road until approximately 11 February

for sewer installation work, after this time this section of road will be open to traffic one way. Road

reconstruction continues on Gerald Street (between Springs Road and Vernon Drive), with traffic

controls operating. Stormwater and roading upgrade work continues on Manse Road, Leeston, with

temporary traffic controls operating.

Partial road closure - Christchurch Southern Motorway extension

On Weedons Road there is no access to Main South Road from Levi Road as a one way system is in place

to allow the NZ Transport Agency to complete work for the Christchurch Southern Motorway extension.

fastest growing sectors in New

Zealand, it is essential that Kiwi

students are prepared to learn

and work in a modern, hightech

world.

We want our schools ready

and able to support young

people to develop skills,

confidence, and an interest in

digital technologies to set them

up for successful futures. To

help achieve this, in 2018 digital

technology will be formally

integrated into the New Zealand

curriculum.

This change to the school

curriculum reflects the

Government’s commitment

to championing 21st century

practice in teaching and

learning.

Delivering better education

services, which meet the needs

of every child, is a top priority

for the Government. That is why

last year’s Budget provided a

$15.3 million funding increase

to ensure students with a range

of learning difficulties can

receive support tailored to their

individual learning needs. As

a result, an extra 1250 Kiwi

children will receive help from

teacher aides.

This funding increase,

combined with the increased

funding from Budget 2015,

mean that the Government is

now funding an extra 550,000

hours of classroom support

for students with additional

learning needs.

All parents want to see

their children lead happy, successful

lives and we believe

that giving every child the best

education possible will help

achieve that.

The league, which is entering its

Premiership.

Most of Mainland’s beko netball

games are played back to back with ANZ

Premiership games at Horncastle Arena

in Christchurch, however, the opening

round will be a stand alone game.

Milan is known for its food and often

mooted as the cuisine capital of Italy.

Locally, Milanese Restaurant in Prebbleton

is the king of Italian dining.

Figo Liu is passionate about preparing

authentic Italian food. Figo is into his fifth

year of owning and operating Milanese

Restaurant and word has been spreading

about its superb food and warm friendly

service.

Figo and his staff love seeing their regulars

as well as welcoming new diners who have

come to try their northern style Italian

cooking.

There is plenty of Italian cuisine on the

menu. It includes chicken, pork, beef,

lamb and seafood pasta mains cooked in

delectable sauces, produced on the premises

from fresh ingredients; dishes such as the

ever popular Spaghetti Carbonara and

Seafood Pasta. There is also a wide range

of pizzas with favourites being Chicken

Cranberry and Lamb.

For those preferring a steak, the ribeye

and T-bone meals are served with a choice

of fresh sauce: garlic herb, pepper brandy,

blue cheese or mushroom. You might also

try the bacon wrapped rich beef fillet that

is freshly cooked in the Italian sweet wine

Marsala sauce then served with chicken

pate.

Start the meal with a fresh crisp

prawn or calamari salad entrée,

some smooth brandy and bacon

chicken liver pate, or a serving of

pizza bread. For total satisfaction,

finish off with one of the really

special desserts like the egg-free

Tiramisu or Panna Cotta pudding.

Figo emphasises natural cooking

methods where recipes are prepared

in a traditional manner, where

flavours come from the cooking of

fresh ingredients and sugar content is

low, ensuring that diners have a truly

authentic Italian food experience.

Functions and large groups of up to

eighty people are easily catered for at

Milanese Restaurant. There is always

room for individuals and groups who

might be celebrating a birthday or

other special occasion with antipasto

dishes available, and special dietary

needs catered for (especially if

advance notification is provided).

With a central air conditioning

system keeping diners cool over

summer, Milanese Restaurant is a really

pleasant place for an evening meal.

The restaurant is open from 4.30pm

until 10pm; every Tuesday through to

Sunday. If wanting to experience the taste

Gardening

You can’t beat some beetroot

Motoring

know

AS FAR as crops go, beetroot is a

bit of a super hero in my book.

It is one of the few vegetables

that I can eat raw, boiled,

steamed, roasted, pickled or

added into a juice.

Tasty

The leaves also regularly

Bites

feature in my salads, slaws and

sammies. Even better, it happily

grows all year round, so I am

never without it in the garden.

It’s a good-looking vegetable,

too; the leaves look attractive no

matter what time of year, and you

can’t say that of many veges.

I call it ‘Mr Versatility’.

Want to grow great beets? Rachel Vogan tells what you need to

Money

WHEN AND WHERE

A sunny spot is best, although

beetroot will cope with a couple

of hours of shade. Soil-wise,

all root crops like beetroot,

carrot, parsnip, radish and

salsify require a loose, open soil

(‘friable’ is the technical term),

so dig it over until the texture

looks like breadcrumbs. If you

are planting into containers, use

vegetable potting mix. This stuff

is great, as it is loose and easy for

the roots to wriggle and anchor

themselves into.

TOP CROP FOR POTS

Beetroot grows happily in pots

and containers. The trick to

getting the best results is to use

the best potting mix to start

with. As a crop, they take about

three months to mature, and

the soil needs to have plenty of

nutrients for it to perform. Tubs

should be 20-30cm deep, and

avoid cramming too many plants

into the pot – all this will do is

force more top growth, and limit

the size of the root.

SEED VERSUS SEEDLINGS

The choice is yours, especially at

this time of year. The seeds are

a good size and easy to handle

in your fingers; sow in rows of

finely-cultivated soil about 1cm

deep. The seedlings will appear

in a few weeks, and once they

are finger-length, thin them out

to allow 5-10cm between each

plant.

Seeds can be sown in spring,

summer and autumn. Avoid

winter sowing as they take a

long time to germinate when the

ground is cold.

Seedlings can be planted out all

year round. Look for the smaller

seedlings, as these are less likely

to have as much root disturbance

when you tease them apart.

Remember beetroot is a root

crop, and most root crops do not

handle transplanting that well.

Soak the punnets in a bucket of

seaweed tonic before planting

out, as this will allow the roots

to easily tease themselves apart.

Using a stick or dibber, poke

holes into the ground to allow

the entire root to go straight into

the soil – avoid curling the roots

into smaller holes.

GROWING AND

HARVESTING

Start harvesting by pulling

alternate roots, this spreads the

harvest, and remaining plants

left in the soil have room to get

bigger in size. The roots develop

slightly above ground level, so

avoid covering them with soil if

you are cultivating between rows.

WHICH ONES TO GROW

• ‘Globe’, true to its name, is

round, dark-red in colour, and

is popular for bottling when

small.

• ‘Burpees Golden Globe’ is

a pretty pale-yellow, goldencoloured

beetroot, best eaten

when between golf-ball and

tennis-ball size.

• ‘Baby Beet’ is a small variety

with good colour and flavour.

It matures quickly and pulling

can commence six to seven

weeks after sowing.

• ‘Monorubra’ has a tapered

long root ideal for slicing, and

is quick-growing.

• ‘Cylindra’, as its name

suggests, has a cylindrical

shape that makes it excellent

for slicing.

• ‘Chioggia’, notable for its

pretty red and white concentric

markings, is a sweet, round

beet. Pickle and slice thinly, or

eat raw.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

I have just come back from holiday and my veggie plants are

a bit of a mess, and so are my strawberries. What should I do

to tidy these up?

If your veggie plants haven’t dried out

Answer: and gone to seed, they should have a

fair bit of produce ready now, or will do

in the coming days. Keep checking them regularly, as you will want

to harvest them as soon as they are ready. Make sure you keep up

with the watering, and add some more fertiliser and compost to

keep the beds nice and fresh, with a good supply of nutrients for

your plant to use. If you have a couple of plants that have gone to

seed, these can be removed as they are no good now.

Your strawberries will be ripening thick and fast soon (if they haven’t

been already). A good tip is to only pick them when you are close

to wanting to eat them. This way they are at their best taste-wise,

and in freshness. Trim any of the long runners back, and add some

strawberry fertiliser to keep the plants in good health. If you have

noticed that the soil is looking a bit sad, don’t be afraid to add some

more organic compost or potting mix to the existing mix to freshen

it up and get a wee bit more out of your plants. The healthier the

plant, the better the fruit!

New questions received by

Tuesday 14th February.

Why should I use fertiliser?

Fertiliser helps plants to be able to produce fruit,

flowers, and foliage. With vegetables that are

“gross feeders” (need a lot of nutrients to make

their produce) you will want to make sure they

have a good supply of fertiliser through the

growing season. It helps to create a healthier plant

that gives you a bigger yield and larger produce.

Gift for illustrating the latest trends

Gardening

Instagram is a

treasure-trove of

undiscovered talent. Amy

Parsons-King talked to

fashion illustrator Renuka

Malik, of @nukaillustrations,

about her love of fashion,

technology and design

otoring

What’s your name and how

old are you?

My name is Renuka-Maria

Malik and I am 23-years-old. I

was born in Germany and lived

there for the first six years of

my life, I then moved to India

for two years before residing in

Christchurch, New Zealand. (My

asty Bites

mother is German and my father

is Indian. I also speak fluent

German).

Did you study? If so what?

I studied fashion, technology

and design straight out of high

school, as I’ve wanted to be part

of the fashion industry for as

long as I can remember.

How do you spend your days

oney

at the moment?

I currently work full-time

at Plume, surrounded by my

favourite New Zealand and

international labels. As well as

TALENTED: Renuka Malik finds her inspiration from fashion

websites and the latest runway looks.

illustrating, another huge passion

of mine is make-up artistry.

I think I enjoy make-up as much

as illustrating because, to me, it’s

like drawing but on a face. I love

anything art-based!

How’d you get into fashion

illustration?

Mum loves to tell the story

of how she had to confiscate

all pens off me as a toddler,

because as soon as I could

hold a pen, I used to draw on

anything and everything. She

then replaced it with a pencil

and numerous books with

empty pages, which didn’t take

me long to fill (apparently). As a

tween, I insisted my mother buy

me Vogue magazines, she finally

agreed as long as I sketched what

I saw inside the magazine. I had

no qualms. This furthered my

love for fashion illustrating.

Why’d you decide to start?

As I mentioned, I’ve always

drawn a lot, especially bodies,

faces and clothes. I draw digitally

on my iPad with a stylus and

have developed an individual

style. A wee while ago, a friend

suggested I post a couple of my

illustrations on Instagram. I’ve

had a really good response so far!

Are you a self-taught

illustrator?

Yes! I went to an alternative

learning school (Rudolf Steiner)

and we were encouraged to paint

and draw from a very young age.

Do you want a career as

a fashion illustrator? If so,

how does it work, like are you

commissioned by designers to

sketch their collections?

Ideally, I would love to work

as a freelance illustrator and do

various jobs for fashion/music

magazines, as well as designers

and photographers, or anyone to

be honest! I love seeing drawing

incorporated into photo shoots

e.g the latest MissFQ cover is

super-cute!

Where do you get inspiration

for your drawings from?

At the moment, most of the

illustrations on my page are

all of runway/campaign looks

that I personally like. I source

the majority of my research

from Style.com (now Vogue.com).

I love looking through the latest

shows and I find a lot of new

designers that way too!

Do you think there’s a market

for fashion illustrating?

I think there is a market for

it as not everyone has the gift

of drawing. I once believed that

everyone is born with it but

turns out that’s not true and,

surprisingly, people do come to

you because of the skill set you

have. I would love to work with

anyone in the fashion industry.

There are some pretty

incredible fashion illustrators

around, is there anyone who

particularly inspires your work?

There are so many amazing

fashion illustrators that are

very talented and I love viewing

other people’s work. I would say

that the person who originally

inspired me the most is the

fabulous and French Garance

Doré, I used to, and still do,

think her little sketches are

so adorable. Linear, chic and

simple.

Mustang brings back memories

asty Bites

• By Ross Kiddie

EVEN THOUGH my first Ford

Mustang drive was 45 years ago,

it was an experience I’ll never

forget, and it reinforced my

enthusiasm and desire for the

quintessential North American

muscle car.

That Mustang was a 1970

Boss 302,

oney

and it belonged to my

sister’s boyfriend, who was based

in Christchurch as part of the

United States’ Operation Deep

Freeze programme. It was lefthand-drive,

and I was fortunate

enough to take it south for a few

miles and return to my rural

home near Rolleston.

I’ve had a few Mustang drives

since, all courtesy of Ford New

Zealand, as right-hand-drive

cars have become available

on the local market. My latest

experience was in the sixthgeneration

model just launched

here, and it was as if nothing

has changed, the newcomer

epitomises the early cars wearing

that badge – design, concept, and

performance.

When you study the new pony

car in depth, it has all of the

characteristics of the past; it has

been deliberately designed to

encapsulate retrospective looks,

FORD MUSTANG: Capable high country

charger.

and the detailing is most certainly

traditional.

Mechanically, it carries

familiarity as well, although the

engineering is most definitely

state-of-the-art. There is just a

little bit of a raw, aggressive edge,

which, as a driver, makes you

relate to its predecessors.

The newcomer even has a

5-litre (302 cubic inch) V8

engine. However, it can also be

purchased with a turbocharged,

2.3-litre unit, which, from my

experience with the Ecoboost

four-cylinder series, would

certainly be up to the task with its

233kW and 432Nm outputs.

Nevertheless, it’s the V8 that

appeals to me, and I wasn’t

disappointed. It pumps out a

hefty 306kW along with 530Nm

of torque. In true V8 fashion,

The Automotive Lamp Specialists

it works away

with a tantalising

growl and bark

out the exhaust

pipes.

There is the

choice of a sixspeed

automatic

transmission

or six-speed

manual through

to the rear wheels,

and there are

no surprises there, but what

the Mustang does deliver is an

involving driving experience.

It is responsive and eager, and

has electronic modes which

the driver can set to personal

preference, and there’s even

a track mode if you want to

go drifting at Ruapuna in the

weekend.

Therein lies a little secret; the

Mustang in this form is quite

lively at the rear, it’s easy to test

tyre grip with power on, and

although the traction control

systems are there to intervene

they are non-invasive, you can

initiate oversteer to a certain

level. It’s easy to see why that is

obtainable. With those healthy

power outputs, the ingredients

are in place for adventure.

And the newcomer handles

expertly; there is a lot of rubber

on the road with its 19in Pirelli

tyres and grip is adequate, unless

vigorous throttle application is

requested. Up front the turn-in is

decisive.

I took the test car on a State

Highway 72 run from Loburn to

the Malvern Hills it is directional

and controllable in the tricky

corners, there is just enough

mechanical sophistication within

the suspension and chassis design

so that the driver can push hard

with confidence. Incidentally, the

suspension is a fully independent

set-up, long gone is the Mustang’s

live rear axle.

The combination of power and

handling is enticing. I left the

normal drive setting active for

most of my time in the test car;

I didn’t feel it needed anything

more spirited.

Fuel usage is far from excessive,

I took the test car back showing a

14l/100km (20mpg) average. That

fits well with Ford’s 12.6l100km

(22mpg) claim. At 100km/h it

sips away at around 8l/100km

(35mpg) with the rev counter

showing just 1800rpm in sixth

gear.

The new range starts here at

$59,880 for the 2.3-litre, bearing

in mind there is also a convertible

option that adds around $5000

for each engine variant. The V8

GT fastback lands at $77,880 for

both the manual and automatic

gearbox options. It is fully

specced with Ford’s most up-todate

technology.

Even though it has a good

specification, it’s a car only

two occupants can enjoy. Ford

market the Mustang as a 2+2,

and effectively that is what it is;

two youngsters could be seated

comfortably in the rear, but it is

not an area in which adults would

enjoy being in.

Up front, though, it’s a different

story. The seats are glorious and

the suspension absorbent even

over Christchurch’s broken roads.

However, it’s on the highway

where the Mustang excels; it is

a purposeful and capable highcountry

charger, and it has just so

much appeal it captures attention

everywhere.

Ford in the United States

is on a campaign to relaunch

retrospective concepts. With the

SELWYN TIMES

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Factor in your storage needs

Storage requirements for any home are

dependent on the number of people living there,

their lifestyles and individual personalities.

While some prefer a minimalistic

environment, others may be collectors

with interests and recreational pursuits

presenting the need for space for bikes,

fishing gear, wet suits, surfboards and

more.

Outdoors, a boat, caravan or

motorhome may need to be housed.

Some sub-divisions have covenants

relating to where these may be parked

so check this out before selecting a

house design for a new build and

choosing how to site the house on your

section, to ensure these can be parked

up in a compliant manner.

Indoors, a home is tidier if

possessions can be stored effectively.

Organising the garage with cupboards

and places for bikes, kayaks and the

like, by perhaps hanging them on a wall

or from the ceiling, will allow more

space, as will locating the lawnmower

and gardening tools in an outdoor shed.

Attic trusses are another economic

way to gain more space in a home.

Usually sited in the roof of the garage,

they offer a place where less used

items can be tucked away. Install an

attic ladder and you have a place for

possessions that might be needed more

regularly. The roof shape and pitch will

influence whether trusses can be fitted;

attic trusses may not be possible with a

low pitched roof.

Hall cupboards and storage rooms

are a place for linen, blankets, the

vacuum cleaner and a myriad of other

miscellanea. If the hot water cylinder

is sited in the roof cavity this will

also increase the cupboard space.

Alternatively, gas hot water means there

is no cylinder.

Wardrobe sizes vary. When looking

at house designs: consider the size of

these; what furniture will be needed for

extra storage in a room; and whether

there will be sufficient space given the

floor area.

In the kitchen, pantries are now

desirable features. Have a mix of

cabinetry with shelves, drawers and

cupboards for storing breakables or

items you do not want on view. Plenty

of bench space will allow regularly

used kitchen appliances like the

toaster, electric jug, cake mixer or food

processor to be left by a power point for

quick and easy use. Consider too, an

appliance cupboard, which can assist

fast preparation especially with the first

meal of the day. Where there are corner

cupboards, a Lazy Susan might be fitted

for better access to items stored within.

Economics may determine whether

you have a separate laundry or site this

in the garage. In either case, if space

allows, include a bin for dirty laundry

and cupboards for storing soap powder,

cleaning products, brooms and mops.

Visiting show homes will help you

gain an idea of space, storage options

and how they fit within particular

house designs.

Wardrobe sizes vary between

house designs.

Hall cupboards offer

extra storage capacity.

Have a mix of shelves and

cupboards in the pantry.

In the laundry area, include a bin laundry and storage cupboards.

COMPUTING FOR FREE

Free qualification builds digital confidence

The New Zealand Certificate in Computing Level 3

(Intermediate User) has been developed to equip

students with the digital skills expected in today’s

workforce.

Ara Computing for Free Academic Team Leader Des

Hoogervorst says that learning how to use digital

technology and operate online is now a necessity.

“Technology, the workforce and education are

evolving. Through this new programme, we work

with students to build their confidence with

technology step-by-step. Then we show them how

they can use it to discover information and come up

with solutions.”

The certificate introduces students to the types of

tools commonly used in a business environment.

Students can then apply this knowledge to the

specific tools used in their workplace and adapt to

new ones as technology advances.

One of the advantages about studying through

Computing for Free is the community that students

become part of. The Level 3 certificate includes an

online forum where students can share their insights

as they progress through the course.

“This experience will enable students to have

confident conversations in a digital work

environment. By interacting with people from

different industries and backgrounds, students will

also learn more about the digital business world.”

The qualification covers fundamental digital skills,

such as the use of different mobile devices and how

to connect these to WiFi and Bluetooth.

Students will explore the privacy and security

implications of different types of filing systems and

file sharing software, including cloud-based storage.

Experiencing tools such as Microsoft Office, online

presentations, basic HTML editing suites and social

media will give students a wide understanding of

the digital activities carried out in most businesses.

The programme has no fees, is self-paced and

flexible. Students can start at any time of the year

and can choose to study from home or at one of the

Ara Computing for Free locations in Christchurch or

Timaru. Enrolments are open now.

Computing for Free focuses on digital skills

Ara Institute of Canterbury is preparing students

to operate in the digital workplace through

Computing for Free. New qualifications are being

introduced this year, with a focus on digital literacy.

Computing for Free Manager Peter Nock says that

the new qualifications reflect today’s digital business

environment. They are delivered primarily online and

encourage digital collaboration and problem solving.

The New Zealand Certificate in Computing Level 3

(Intermediate User) is open for enrolment now and

equips students with the knowledge to use a broad

range of technology to their advantage.

“Rather than just teaching students to use specific

software well, this qualification encourages them to

become independent thinkers. They will learn to use

technology to problem solve and come up with their

own solutions, instead of relying on a textbook or

their tutor.”

While some familiarity with computing is needed

to get started, beginners can complete some of

Computing for Free’s non-assessed courses as

a stepping-stone to build their basic skills and

confidence first.

“It doesn’t matter what level of knowledge you have,

just come in and talk to us and we can come up with

a pathway to suit you. We’re here to support you to

fill in the gaps.”

With 90% of the course content delivered online,

the Level 3 qualification is highly flexible. Students

can fit study in around their work and family

commitments, and progress at their own pace.

They can choose to study from home, the office,

or at one of our Computing for Free locations in

Christchurch or Timaru.

A Level 4 qualification will also be introduced in

2017 for people who want to further their skills.

The New Zealand Certificate in Computing Level 4

(Advanced User) will give students the expertise

to analyse more complex data and become more

efficient at doing business using technology.

We’re here to help make your enrolment easy. Please call, email or visit our website for more information.

KNOWLEDGE AT WORK

CHRISTCHURCH | ASHBURTON | TIMARU | OAMARU | ONLINE


COMPUTING FOR FREE

5 essential skills for the digital workplace

The skill-set for anyone who works in an office environment has changed dramatically in the past 10 years and it continues to

change at a rapid pace. Ara Head of Computing Dr Nathan Rountree identifies the essential skills people need to thrive in the

digital workplace.

ESSENTIAL SKILL #1:

ADAPTABILITY TO A RANGE

OF DIGITAL TOOLS

General digital confidence and competence is now

essential for employment and career progression.

Gone are the days of just training to use select

computer programs, instead people need to be able

to find and use the right digital tools to complete a

variety of tasks.

ESSENTIAL SKILL #2:

IT COMMUNICATION

People need to understand enough about IT to

communicate effectively with IT support in their

organisation, or as part of running their own

small business. An increased knowledge of the IT

environment results in better communication, better

functioning of teams and better business results.

ESSENTIAL SKILL #3:

ELECTRONIC FILING CAPABILITY

It is now an expectation that all staff in an

organisation, from business administrators to

managers, can make decisions about file storage.

Everyone needs to have the ability to organise an

electronic filing system that many other people are

going to use, with differing levels of access.

ESSENTIAL SKILL #4:

UNDERSTANDING TECHNOLOGY

FOR BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT

There are now endless digital tools that can help us do

better, faster and more efficient business. It’s important

that people are aware of how new technologies can be

used to benefit them and their organisation.

ESSENTIAL SKILL #5:

KNOWING HOW TO MAKE SENSE

OF DATA

Today almost all organisations are using data

to make better decisions and there is a strong

expectation that everyone in a business can look at,

process and understand data. The most common

way data is presented is in a spreadsheet and these

have to be read by people who understand both

data and spreadsheets.

Computing For Free can help support you in acquiring these skills so you can be more effective in the workplace.

This property must go. Located on the outskirts of West Melton you will find this 1940’s Art Deco home sitting on a

sought after 2.1562 hectare block. The home is true to its era from the arched doorways through to the wood paneling

glazing and diesel fire will ensure you don’t feel the cold. There are two large bedrooms inside, outside you will find a

partially finished sleep out for extra guests or teenagers. The block itself is surrounded by a mature shelter belt and

subdivided into fenced paddocks. Those who are into horses will certainly appreciate the five stables complete with

tack & feed rooms along with a wash down area. There is also the bonus of a four bay hay barn and utility sheds. Our

vendors are extremely motivated to sell and want this property gone at Auction on 24th February 2017, unless sold

prior.
