FUEL TAX IDEA

You’ve got to be

joking – motorists

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

• By Bridget Rutherford

MOTORISTS HAVE slammed

an idea to introduce a regional

fuel tax in Canterbury to fix

earthquake-damaged roads.

Last week, The Star revealed

city councillors Aaron Keown

and Phil Clearwater were pushing

for a fuel tax.

But The Star has received

numerous readers’ responses –

with all but one saying they did

not want a regional fuel tax (see

pages 16-18).

They said petrol was already

expensive including the fuel

excise, and the city council

should find money within its

budget to repair the roads.

It comes as Energy Minister

Judith Collins signals an inquiry

into rising petrol margins.

Petrol was currently about 30c

more in the South Island and

Wellington compared to places

such as Levin and Masterton.

Cr Keown said he expected

opposition to the idea – but in

paying extra on fuel tax to fix

the roads, it would save money

in the future.

“Rather than pay a little bit

more on fuel, they’d rather

damage their cars and take more

time travelling.

They are assuming the council

can just juggle the numbers

around and fix the roads.”

Motorist Helen Logan (left)

Aaron Keown Phil Clearwater

said she would be “very disappointed”

if a fuel tax was introduced.

“We’re paying more for fuel

here in Christchurch. I feel like

there’s so many other ways to

contribute to the roads.

“A lot of people can’t afford to

run cars as it is.”

Auckland Mayor Phil Goff

asked for a 10c per litre fuel tax

for Auckland to plug the $4

million funding gap it has for a

list of transport projects over the

next decade.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said she

would be interested to see what

happened there before making

any decisions on asking the Government

to look at Canterbury.

Canterbury University transport

expert Simon Kingham said

the idea was feasible because it

was user-based.

He said if the city council was

to find money in the budget for

repairs, it would have to up rates,

or take it from another project.

NO SURPRISES to the reaction

to city councillors Aaron Keown

and Phil Clearwater’s idea of a

fuel tax on Canterbury motorists

we reported last week.

Readers have responded en

masse and we have published

those responses on pages 16-18

today. One says they can stick

the idea where the sun doesn’t

shine . . . so it seems Keown and

Clearwater are lucky they haven’t

suggested the idea in election

year.

But then they’re probably too

clever for that. I suspect the two

have no chance of getting the tax

idea across the line.

On page 3, we report on a

dust up between local body

politicians over Donald Trump.

Community board member John

Stringer has taken exception to

Facebook posts from Vicki Buck

and the matter has turned to

custard from there. Let’s hope

Trump doesn’t find out. . . no

knowing what his reaction might

be.

BURNSIDE HIGH 57 TODAY

ON FEBRUARY 2, 1960, Burnside High School

opened. On that day in 1974, what was known

as the “greatest middle distance race of all time”

was run, with Tanzanian Filbert Bay beating

John Walker in the 1500m at the Commonwealth

Games. They both beat the existing record. On

February 2, 1982, the Central Public Library in

Gloucester St opened. On February 3, 1915, the

Canterbury Battalion sustained New Zealand’s

City’s politicians go

toe-to-toe over Trump

• By Bridget Rutherford

DONALD Trump is

fuelling political dust-ups in

Christchurch.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member John Stringer

has hit out against city

councillor Vicki Buck for

posting “anti-Trump” messages

on her Facebook page.

Mr Stringer, the former

Conservative Party chairman,

said in spite of whether people

liked Mr Trump or not, he

should be respected in his role as

president of the United States.

But Cr Buck said what she

posted on her Facebook page

was up to her to decide.

The former mayor last week

posted a photo of a pair of “heinous”

socks with Mr Trump’s

face on them that she had been

given asking if anyone had a

good cause for them.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel had

been given the socks and passed

them on to Cr Buck.

Someone had suggested

she get the image and print

it on condoms, to which Cr

Buck called an “interesting

possibility”.

Mr Stringer said a senior

councillor should not be posting

those sorts of messages, especially

with the good relationship

New Zealand had with the US.

“I’m not sure suggesting the

US president should be pictured

on condoms screwing the

west is the kind of strategic

direction-making I want from

Christchurch city councillors.”

But Cr Buck told The Star she

did not want to get into a debate

about it because there were far

more important things to worry

about.

“Most Americans in Christchurch

are deeply offended by

CONFLICT: The pair of

socks Cr Buck offered to

give away for a good cause. ​

Donald Trump’s actions,” Cr

Buck said.

“I think the actions Donald

Trump makes undermines

pretty much everything we

had hoped the President of the

United States might do.”

She said it was up to her what

she posted on Facebook.

Meanwhile, city councillor

Glenn Livingstone was not

happy with columnist

Mike Yardley’s opinion

piece in The Press about

the Women’s March

on Washington across

the world and in

Christchurch.

In it, Mr Yardley said

the march showed little

respect for the democratic

process.

There is something

nauseously disturbing

about the far left’s duplicitous

affection for

John Stringer

Vicki Buck

the voice of democracy and free

expression,” he wrote.

Cr Livingstone posted

on his Facebook

page in response

to the piece.

“You still

want us to

give Trump a

chance, Mike

Yardley NZ?

My wife and

I marched in

Washington

DC and we

damn well

knew what

we were doing,

along with the other

thousands there

and here in New

Zealand.

You

really still think it’s just a ‘leftie’

thing? Surely you were only

winding us up . . . ”

Meanwhile, Mr Stringer

reached a confidential out-ofcourt

settlement in his High

Court defamation case with

former Conservative Party

leader Colin Craig on Tuesday.

Mr Craig alleged Mr Stringer

defamed him in 2015. Mr

Stringer would pay

Mr Craig an

undisclosed

sum, as

well as

providing a

retraction

and

apology.

In Brief

SHIP BERTH REPORT

The city council will receive a

report within the next month

about a plan to rebuild the

cruise ship berth in Lyttelton.

Christchurch City Holdings Ltd

chief executive Paul Munro said

he could not discuss the details,

but he could confirm it would

report to council on aspects of the

proposed berth within the month.

The Lyttelton cruise ship berth

was destroyed in the February

2011 earthquake. Akaroa has been

hosting cruise ships since.

COCKPIT IN THE GARDENS

An Air New Zealand Boeing 737

cockpit nose has been installed

outside Canterbury Museum next

to the Botanic Gardens as part

of the airline’s 75 th anniversary

exhibition. Visitors will be able

to sit behind the plane’s controls

in the pilot and co-pilot seats,

entering the flight deck in small

groups from steps in the Botanic

Gardens. The cockpit nose will

be open to the public from

Friday, 10am-5pm daily, weather

permitting, until March 26.

HAEATA CAMPUS OPENS

Aranui’s new Haeata Community

Campus will officially open

tomorrow. The new super school,

made up of Aranui, Avondale and

Wainoni primary schools, as well

as Aranui High, has been built on

the site of Aranui High. Pupils,

parents and staff will be welcomed

with a powhiri.

MEETING POSTPONED

AFTER DEATH

A water zone committee meeting

had to be postponed last week

due to an unexpected death

in Environment Canterbury’s

building. The Christchurch West

Melton Water Management

Zone Committee meeting was

scheduled for Thursday. However,

an ECan spokesman said due to

a staff member suffering a heart

attack and later passing away, the

meeting did not go ahead as the

building had to be blessed by local

runanga.

Fuel tax idea

From Super Rugby to City2Surf

• From page 1

But there would be issues with

the boundary, as people could

drive to fill up their vehicles outside

of the fuel tax area, he said.

Currently, motorists pay about

67c per litre in fuel excise to the

Government, with GST on top of

that.

Cr Clearwater said this week he

wanted the tax motorists already

paid on fuel to be channelled into

fixing the region’s earthquakedamaged

roads so there was no

extra cost to motorists.

In Brief

A nationwide bike challenge is

encouraging organisations to

get staff on their bikes, with the

winners receiving prizes. The

Aotearoa Bike Challenge, run

by the New Zealand Transport

Agency, began yesterday and

will run throughout February. It

aims to get more people on their

bikes. Organisations, such as the

city council, sign up and earn

points for riding and recruiting

new members, with an eBike,

Panasonic Smart TV, cycling gear,

movie vouchers and more to be

won.

• By Gordon Findlater

AT THIS time of the year former

Super Rugby player Ged Robinson is

normally getting towards peak fitness

ahead of a busy season.

This year he’s all about keeping

Christchurch well fed with what he

calls a Kiwi take on Italian style pizza.

Fed by Ged will be

one of many tasty and

nutritious options

available for those

needing refuelling

following The Star

City2Surf. The former

Crusader, whose mobile

wood fire pizza oven is

regularly based outside

Il Magro espresso bar in

Papanui, will be awaiting runners at

the finish area of next month’s event.

Outside of rugby Robinson has always

had a love for food. After recently

hanging up the boots he’s now had

more time to concentrate on that love.

“I’m a front rower so I love food. I

moved to Melbourne and played over

there for three years. My wife and I

spent a lot of time checking out the city

and enjoying the food, that probably

fired up the taste buds even more,” said

Robinson.

His first experiments with pizza

came during his time while playing for

the Melbourne Rebels, regularly feeding

teammates on his own creations.

His passion for fuelling a squad has

grown ever since.

After spending a decade as a professional

rugby player Robinson knows all

about nutrition, something he’s taken

to the oven.

“Italian style pizza has really high

quality meat and really low in sugar

and salt. I do make brown flour pizza

dough as well as the traditional

white. It’s all really

good quality, non-processed

food,” said Robinson.

Robinson is continually

working on new creations

and by the time March 19

rolls around he may just

have a new recipe to unveil.

Cleverley steps aside

CANTERBURY District

Health Board chairman

Murray Cleverley has stepped

aside from the role, while he is

investigated for allegations of

private commercial property

deals while he was employed

by the now defunct Canterbury

Earthquake Recovery

Authority.

Mr Cleverley said he has

stepped aside “to allow for a

review of matters relating to the

management of perceived and/

or conflicts of interest”.

It was reported at the weekend

that Mr Cleverley and two

other CERA staff employed

to facilitate investment in the

city’s rebuild, tried to arrange

property deals through their

own company for a finder’s fee.

In one case a $300,000 fee it

was reported.

The two other former CERA

employees now work with

Government agency Otakaro

Ltd which was set up to

continue part of the rebuild

work of CERA.

Otakaro Ltd chief executive

Albert Brantley said those two

people had been stood down

while the investigation was

conducted.

Mr Cleverley said in

a statement yesterday

he was confident that

he carried out his

responsibilities while

he was with CERA in a

proper manner.

Mr Cleverley, will

also step aside as an

elected member and

chairman of South

Canterbury District

Health Board, while the investigation

is ongoing.

Murray Cleverley

Said Mr Cleverley:

“I have made the

decision that the right

thing to do is to step

aside from these roles

for a period of time to

allow for a review of

matters relating to the

management of perceived

and/or actual

conflicts of interest,”

he said.

“I have informed the Crown

that any review of this matter

would have my full support and

co- operation and that a review

is necessary to ensure ongoing

faith and confidence.

“It is important to me as a

professional director and as

chair that the minister and the

communities which we serve

have full faith and confidence

in me and my governance

leadership.

“I am also confident that as

an employee of CERA in the

role of GM Investment Strategy

Greater Christchurch that I

carried out my responsibilities

in a proper manner. It would

not be appropriate for me to

comment on employees who at

the time reported to me until I

left that role around two years

ago.

Because of my decision to

step aside during these review

processes, it would not be appropriate

for me to debate any

inaccuracies and assumptions

in quotes and content of some

media articles as that would

potentially compromise any

independent review.

I will of course provide any

and all information and background

that is required as part

of this process.

Opposition to

school move

grows

• Noah Graham

OPPOSITION TO Redcliffs

School’s move to Redcliffs Park is

continuing to snowball.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member Darrell

Latham knows the relocation

of the school is a difficult decision

but says it is the wrong one.

“From my perspective, Hekia

Parata (Education Minister) has in

many ways dealt the Redcliffs community

a poisoned chalice.”

From his perspective, the Main

Rd site was the best location for the

school and expert advice provided

to Ms Parata proved it was safe, he

said.

The community was thrilled

Redcliffs School would stay open,

but it would come at a “tricky cost,”

Mr Latham said.

However, Friends of Redcliffs

Park chairwoman Simi Desor said

there was nothing wrong with the

original school site.

The old school site is perfectly

safe and perfectly fine to keep,” she

said.

“If the school is the heart of the

community, that particular park is

really the soul of the community

and we would like to preserve the

park.”

Election date gets the tick

• By Tom Doudney

MPS AND candidates from

both major parties have

reacted with enthusiasm to the

announcement of a September

23 election date.

Labour’s Wigram MP Megan

Woods said the date came as no

surprise and the party was ready

to fight.

“We are really in a good place

in terms of where our campaign

machine is, we know what the

things we need to go and talk to

New Zealanders and people in

Canterbury about are.”

The housing crisis, making

sure people had access to healthcare

and world-class education

and getting on top of issues that

had been going on in Christchurch

since the earthquakes

would be priorities for Labour,

she said.

Christchurch MP Nicky Wagner,

who has held the former

Labour safe seat since 2011, said

she would continue working

hard for constituents as she

sought to win it for a third term.

“I am deeply indebted to the

community in my electorate, I

really like working with them

and I will continue to do that,”

she said.

She wanted to help build on

Megan Woods Nicky Wagner Duncan Webb

the opportunities that were

already available for people in

Christchurch and ensure they

were available for everyone.

Labour’s Christchurch Central

candidate Duncan Webb said he

was looking forward to winning

the seat back for the party.

“I think it’s just a real aberration

that it has being held by

National. Last election the tide

was out for Labour but we’re

back, I’m here, we’re coming,”

Mr Webb said.

“My campaign is going to be

focusing on Christchurch and

the fact that this Government

has let it down.”

Back to the drawing board for

controversial intersection

• By Noah Graham

THE PUBLIC will get a big say

on what changes will be made

to the controversial St Andrews

Hill, Bridle Path and Main Rds

intersection.

The city council is looking to

change the layout and residents

have received a brochure in

their letterboxes outlining three

options.

The first option is to leave the

intersection as it is. The second

option is to install new traffic

signals on St Andrews Hill Rd,

alongside new pre-signals on

Bridle Path Rd.

The third option is to

introduce a ‘no right turn’ for

Bridle Path Rd traffic onto Main

Rd.

However, Heathcote Valley

residents believe the third

option will be detrimental to the

community.

Heathcote Valley Community

Association administrator Jackie

Foulkes said at its recent meeting

residents said they were worried

about the inconvenience the

third option would cause.

OPTIONS: A photo-shopped image of what the St Andrews Hill, Bridle Path and Main Rds

intersection will become if option two is the final decision.

“People are unhappy about

the potential loss of a right-hand

turn heading to Sumner and

Redcliffs.”

A drop-in consultation

meeting was held last night with

the final consultation meeting

taking place at the Heathcote

Community Centre on February

9. Mrs Foulkes said if residents

did not speak up, the wrong

option might be chosen.

Radio host

in hospital

following

heart attack

BROADCASTER JASON Gunn

was admitted to hospital after

suffering a heart attack.

The More FM host, 48, was

at the gym

on Tuesday

morning when

he became

ill. He was

absent from his

afternoon show

later that day.

He’s since had a stent put in

and is expected to make a full

recovery.

He spoke to co-host Lana

Seale in Christchurch Hospital.

Gunn said he had thought he

was “quite healthy”.

“It’s a lesson for all of us that

you never take your health for

granted,” he said.

“When I went in to get an operation,

isn’t it amazing that all

your troubles just disappear.

“All I could think of were my

kids and wife Janine and my

family. That’s just the biggest

Decision

looms over

heritage grant

• By Bridget Rutherford

DISCUSSIONS ON whether to

approve a heritage grant for the

Public Trust building will take

place behind closed doors today.

The category 2 historic building

on Oxford Tce was damaged in

the February 2011 earthquake,

however, Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Authority deemed it

repairable.

City councillors were to discuss

the approval for a central city landmark

heritage grant for the building

in the public excluded section

of their meeting today.

But they would not talk about

what was to be discussed when

asked by The Star.

Ben Gough’s business Tailorspace

owns the 1920s art-deco

building and had applied to CERA

twice to demolish it. Both were

denied.

Last year, it successfully applied

to have the building’s heritage status

removed in the Christchurch

Replacement District Plan.

Chief executive Brett Gamble

said it was still reviewing its options

for the building and site.

“This is an ongoing process

and no conclusions have yet been

reached.”

Women’s rights stalwart dies

• By Bridget Rutherford

DAME LAURIE Salas, who

dedicated her life to both the

peace and women’s rights

movements, has died.

She passed away last Thursday

and is to be farewelled in Wellington

today.

After being born in Wellington,

Dame Laurie moved to

Christchurch where she went

to Rangi Ruru Girls’ School,

before studying at Canterbury

University.

She was the daughter of

Christchurch philanthropist,

and former mayor of Christchurch

Sir James Hay.

Dame Laurie was married to

the late Dr Jack Salas and they

had six children.

She was national secretary of

the National Council of Women

of New Zealand, before moving

into the role of national vicepresident.

She was once the president of

the United Nations Association

of New Zealand and in 1982,

was the only non-Government

representative from New

Zealand at the United Nations

session on disarmament, as well

as at the New York conference of

Women of the World Working

for Peace.

PASSIONATE: Dame Laurie Salas was part of the National Council of Women of New Zealand

at a time when protests for women’s rights were held.

Dame Laurie was involved

in the Women’s International

League for Peace and Freedom

and the National Society for Alcoholism

and Drug Addiction.

In 1982, she was made a Companion

of the Queen’s Service

Order for community service.

Six years later she was made a

Dame Commander of the Order

of the British Empire.

She also received the Queen

Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Medal

in 1977, and the New Zealand

1990 Commemoration Medal.

Dame Laurie’s brother, Sir

Hamish Hay, like his father was

also mayor of Christchurch,

serving five terms from 1974

until to 1989. He passed away in

2008.

His twin, Sir David Hay, was

a prominent cardiologist, and a

long-time campaigner against

smoking and the tobacco

industry as a medical director

of Heart Foundation New

Zealand.

He died last month.

NCWNZ national president

Rae Duff said she gave years of

distinguished service.

“Dame Laurie quietly mentored

younger women to encourage

learning and enhance

the lives of women.”

Community boards

go high-tech

• By Caitlin Miles

THE CITY’S community board

members are about to go hi-tech.

As part of the city council’s

decision to go paperless to save

money, the 37 community board

members will receive 12-inch

iPad Pros and keyboard to keep

record of meeting times, reports

access agendas, information and

book appointments electronically.

The iPads’ and keyboard cases

for all the board members cost

$51,171 – a saving of $38,829

on what the city council

spent last year on production,

delivery and

disposal costs of agendas

and other information.

The city council decided

to go paperless in

the hopes of saving money, city

councillors started the trend late

last year when they were given

electronic devices.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

was set to be the first community

board to follow suit at its meeting

on Monday, but the devices

weren’t ready.

City council governance

process lead, Matt Boult, said the

community boards will start going

paperless in March.

Councillor Yani Johanson

(left) said it’s a much more

efficient way to run the meetings

and spend less money

printing and sending the

agendas to community board

members.

The city council is offering full

training and ongoing support

to the board members to learn

how to use the iPads and how

to access information and

meetings.

However, Cr Johanson said the

city council needs to be mindful

of community groups and the

pubic who do not have access

to the agendas and information

online.

Mr Boult said paper copies of

agendas will still be produced for

members of the public attending

meetings who request one and

copies will be available in libraries.

He said board members can

use the device for personal use,

as long as it isn’t “excessive”, at a

cost to the city council or used

by family and friends.

When city council

representatives leave Mr Boult

said they will have to return the

device, which will then be reused

by either their replacement

or within the city council.

Truck driver death

Logging truck driver Robin Vivian Drummond died when

his vehicle ploughed into the back of another truck on

Main South Rd, Templeton, yesterday. The 63-year-old

was from Tapanui, West Otago. Police said the accident,

which happened at 7.30am, was a “nose to tail” crash. The

driver of the second truck, from Hilton Haulage, was not

injured. The accident happened near the Cookie Time

factory. The road was reopened at about 1pm.

Married life is great

for wedding winner

TAMMY Akuhata-Brown is “still

absolutely buzzing” after getting

married – and what’s more, it was

free.

She and her now husband,

Tristan, won their $30,000 wedding

through the Bridal Show’s

Win a Wedding Promo, put

together by The Wedding Industry

Network.

The couple was chosen by the

network through an interview

process, which included a video,

and written and live presentation.

Ms Akuhata-Brown (above)

said she felt blessed to win,

which saw the couple married at

Harewood’s Omarino Wine Park

on December 11.

“Sometimes it’s still hard to

believe that I’m actually married.

“But with the beautiful rock on

my finger, it’s quite hard to miss

that I’m married because that ring

is stunning.”

Her ring was gifted by Storm

Baker Luxury Jewellers and was

part of their wedding prize package.

The couple celebrated with a

reception of 50 family members

and friends, including their

six-year-old son Bryce and oneyear-old

twins, Maddison and

Connor.

Ms Akuhata-Brown said

thinking back to the wedding, she

remembers when Bryce, who was

usually a shy kid, surprised her

and was brave enough to give a

speech in front of everyone.

Bryce said he hoped the now

happily married couple “will stay

married forever.”

Yacht club to build $1.17m shed

earthquake.

The Moncks Bay-based club

wants to build a new $1.17

further seaward means higher

costs.

REDCLIFFS residents have lost

a battle to have “prison-style”

fencing changed. But they have

received an apology for the

confusing consultation process.

The city council installed 2mhigh

safety fences along the cliff

side of Main Rd to keep people

out of the dangerous rock-fall

area.

However, Redcliffs Residents’

Association thought the

fencing was too tall and had

contribute $327,595 towards

the extra costs associated with

providing for the Coastal Pathway,

along with an additional

$239,713 because the public will

have use of the shed’s decks and

ramps.

The club has raised $607,000

so far, and has carried out soil

testing. It has met with both

“prison-style” spikes on the top.

It wrote to the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board, requesting it ask the

city council to include funding

in the Annual Plan to revise

the fence. It also criticised the

consultation process.

But in a Sumner Lyttelton

Corridor newsletter, city services

general manager Dave

Adamson apologised for the

confusion around the consultation

and justified why that fencing

was installed.

Builders leave as rebuild ebbs

• By Bridget Rutherford

CONSTRUCTION workers

who headed north for the

Christchurch rebuild are

returning south as the industry

booms.

But they are expected to return

when work picks up again.

Construction

work at the University

of Otago’s campuses

this year was

expected to provide

Peter

Townsend

more than 1000 jobs.

Meanwhile, Otago

Polytechnic had

work and construction was

booming in Queenstown.

Dunedin construction companies

said the flow of workers

had reversed as the earthquakerebuild

work slowed.

Cook Brothers Construction

Otago and Southern Lakes

regional manager Blair McGill

said it was seeing more resources

coming out of Christchurch.

He said that was down to them

either wanting a change of scenery

or the work slowing.

Arrow International southern

director Nick Hamlin said the

company had noticed some staff

who had shifted to Christchurch

were now moving back.

SLOWING: Construction workers are heading south as the

rebuild slows in Christchurch. But they are expected to return

when work picks up again.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

“Some of the big projects aren’t

coming through as fast as what

was hoped.”

Higgs Construction construction

manager Dave Freeman said

although his staff had not been

leaving, he had heard of others

heading south.

He said construction workers

went where the work was.

“Most people that did come for

the rebuild are the people who

would do that. That’s just what

they don’t mind doing.”

Canterbury Employers’ Chamber

of Commerce chief executive

Peter Townsend said the construction

sector was fluid.

There’s a lot going on further

south, but there’s also a lot going

on up north. You’re going to get

people moving around. It’s not a

surprise.”

However, he said the construction

workers would head back

when the opportunities manifested

themselves in Christchurch

again.

Mr Townsend said what had

been done in the central city

over the past two years was

“impressive.”

“Of course, we could have

done things faster, but you can

never do things fast enough.”

By the end of this year, people

would get a good view of what

the central city would look like

in the future, he said.

2017 will be the year, in my

opinion, physical manifestation

of the rebuild of the central city

will overwhelm the negative

sentiment about how long it’s

taken.”

Youth will be

questioned

over attack

• By Andrew King

DETECTIVES WILL question a

youth in connection with a vicious

beating under the Moorhouse Ave

overbridge.

A member of the public gave

police the name of a man after

CCTV footage was released on

Tuesday of four youths near where

the attack occurred.

A 53-year-old man is recovering

in Christchurch Hospital after he

was thrown to the ground and

kicked in the head by a man who

was with the group.

He sustained serious – but not

life threatening – head injuries.

“I am confident I now know who

that male we are looking for is and

we will be speaking with him as

soon as possible,” Detective Brad

Greenstreet said yesterday.

Police briefly spoke to the victim

but have not conducted a full

interview.

“At this stage, we are still piecing

together just what happened in the

lead up to the attack,” he said.

He said there was a minor

confrontation before the attack,

but could not comment on exactly

what was said.

City councillors Aaron

Keown and Phil Clearwater

have mooted the idea of

implementing a regional

fuel tax for Canterbury

to fix the earthquakedamaged

roads. Readers

react

Craig Austin – First time to

comment on a council idea. Why

are the taxpayers always getting

hit in the pocket?

We pay rates for things like

this or is it another way to give

councillors a pay rise? Tax the

tourists for the road use.

John Stone, of Harewood

– It’s a definite “no” for the

Canterbury fuel tax idea.

I don’t recall Mayor Dalziel

and Cr Keown mentioning this

idea in their election campaigns

for the last council elections, so

its a case of keeping it quiet until

safely re-elected.

Sorry guys – lack of

transparency from you means

lack of support from us.

Wayne Hawker - Totally

opposed to this proposal

especially when the Government

is slowly bailing out on their

share of costs towards the

rebuild of Christchurch.

agreement on the repair

of the existing stadium not just

the building of a new stadium in

central city that majority of ratepayers

don’t want, between $150

million and $200 million could

be saved for ratepayers and taxpayers

which could then target

other areas such as roading.

Before Christmas, the company

that re-mediated the land

under the Arts Centre stated

they could do the same at AMI

for a fixed price of $30 million

which then gives all parties a

starting point for a project expected

to cost about $375 million

which is still nearly $200 million

cheaper than the new proposed

stadium which at this stage does

not even have a business case

study attached to the proposal.

Inn reality, most likely the costs

will continue to rise as the

proposed site will also need land

remediation.

The new central library is

another example which has lead

to an explosion of costs that now

fall on a cash-strapped council.

Dick Osborne – How can

two-bit politicians moot an

idea to impose a fuel tax on

Canterbury customers?

We are already being rippedoff

by the petrol companies,

compared to the rest of the

country we are paying far too

much now!

Check out the prices in

Tauranga (a port city also) published

in Bay of Plenty Times on

January 24. Over a dozen outlets

selling 91 octane from $1.717 to

$1.909.

It sounds a great idea if you

can bum around in a city council

car all day!

Michael J. Brathwaite,

of Spreydon – While Aaron

Keown sometimes comes up

with suggestions I support, the

idea of a fuel tax to repair the

roads is not one of them.

Since “repairing” streets these

days means narrowing them,

replacing the parking spaces

with yellow lines, cycle lanes and

trees, putting in the new type

of gutters that flood every time

it rains, and reducing the speed

limits, along with adding judder

bars and median strips.

I would rather put up with the

roads the way they are.

Motorists get a very raw deal

in Christchurch these days. Perhaps

they could levy a toll from

cyclists rather than motorists.

Joy Priest, of Addington

The price of petrol is barely

affordable for many people

now, adding another 10c a litre

will only make it even more

expensive.

The council appears to have

millions to spend digging up

perfectly good roads and buying

people’s homes to demolish, to

build cycleways and yet they

have no money for repairing

damaged roads?

Ratepayers want our money

spent to repair our city to benefit

us all, not spent on cycleways

for so few to use, people who

seem to think they are saving the

world, instead of that they are

robbing our city of progress for

us all.

Trevor Hemsley – No, no,

no.

We are already paying way

over the top for fuel and many

are struggling. While I’m at

it I would also say that the

Government has no right to give

the decision on fluoridating our

water to the DHB which is very

pro the idea.

In effect the Government is

saying yes to fluoridation. It is up

to the people of Christchurch to

decide through the city council.

Martin Barnes – No way

should the council (Aaron

Keown) implement a fuel tax to

fund road repairs.

Christchurch people are already

doing it tough just keeping

a roof over their heads and paying

bills, we don’t need another

$20- $30 a week added to our

already high fuel costs. There are

already enough taxes on fuel.

And what will be the cost of

collecting this tax – admin fees.

In closing I bet not all the money

would go to roading repairs.

Maurice Burrows – I

support a small charge but the

difficulties in implementing the

charge would be untenable.

How will the tax be geographically

defined? A short trip to

Darfield or Leeston to fill up

would probably pay off.

What about electric/hybrid

The state of Michigan in the

Graeme Wilce – I am really

on to top of the ever increasing

amount of petrol that we face

each day, week, or month.

Just to get the bloody roads

fixed, this comes out of the

“rates” that constantly go up each

year. Why don’t those council

people get all these people in

rented houses to contribute to the

“rates” would be more appropriate.

Me and my wife are both

retired now and it’s quite hard

on our budget just to fill-up the

car, and we live on the east side

of Christchurch and I notice

quite a lot of people having to

cart their groceries, walking past

our home, and most of them are

elderly folks to.

Obviously they are trying their

best to conserve gas in their

vehicles.

IDEA: A

regional

fuel tax for

Canterbury

could pay

for the

repair of its

earthquake

damaged

roads, such

as New

Brighton

Rd, city

councillors

say.

It’s all okay for those councillors

to come up with these crazy

ideas, dollars for this and dollars

for that, they have a big income,

and it just wouldn’t worry them.

They can “bloody well pull

their heads in” and go and do

some work for a change, instead

of trying to squeeze every last

dollar from the motorists in Canterbury

and Christchurch.

Lynn Rodway – No way to a

local body fuel tax.

The price of fuel is already too

high in this low wage/high prices

economy. The city council needs

to adjust its budget so it is not

forever loading up the ratepayer

with more tax.

Stan Wilkins, of Richmond

– From what Cr Keown

requested and Cr Clearwater

suggested begs the question:

What happened to the money

supposedly budgeted for over the

years in the first instance?

I would have thought that it

would have been the first question

to be asked by the “councillor”.

The quake was back in 2011!

Secondly, it is obvious that

those in charge of the budgets

have not got a clue.

In the same issue of The Star,

an article is quoted as saying the

council would consider a grant

to repair a building (historical or

not) to the tune of $900,000 or

how about the $1 million going

toward a parking lot.

Strange why they needed to

buy the properties to support an

application for consent for a the

Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre?

While here, can he explain

what the rate increase last year

will fund?

It’s a joke. There is nothing

mentioned about a strategy for

repairing the roads outside of

charging a tax.

Is this what his supporters

signed up for, “Smooth roads that

really work”, did he bother to tell

them of his intentions at the time

of his campaign?

Maybe he would like to explain

why they keep digging up newly

surfaced roads while he is at it?

To use Phil Goff and Auckland

as a reference is pathetic. To even

consider such an option is distasteful.

Does he honestly think

it will not have an effect on the

cost of living?

Maybe he should consider

asking his fellow councillors to

donate their annual salaries to

his efforts to fix the roads, after

all they are in office to work for

the benefit of the public are they

not. No, he would rather increase

the cost of living, take the food

out of children’s mouths, ask the

pensioners to suffer even more

hardship and push others over

the edge of the breadline.

This is precisely what a Donald

Trump attitude council would

adopt. Why stop at fuel tax? Why

not introduce a tourist tax, a

student tax, a tenant tax, or any

other method you can think of to

extort money from the public.

I am sure it would all be welcomed

with open arms.

Natalie Whales – I live in

Christchurch and was in the east

side when the major earthquakes

were happening and I personally

think that all of Christchurch

have gone through enough

without having a fuel tax added

as well.

I know that the city council

has some big bills to deal with

in regards to repair of roads and

buildings in Christchurch but we

have already been hit with quite

significant rate increases.

Our rates have increased by

at least $200 a quarter since the

earthquakes and our wages have

not increased to meet that, but

we still have to pay them.

I also object to the city council

having an “art fund” and using

that to put statues in the Avon

River that we didn’t get asked

if wanted them in the first

place and these statues have

also cost major amounts of money

that I feel personally should be

spent on getting our roads back

up to a better state, especially in

the east side!

Let’s get the roads up to standard

first and then worry about

art and pretty things!

Also, could they have less city

councillors or pay them less so

that, that money can be spent on

our roads!

I personally think Christchurch

people have had enough

to deal with without more costs

such as a fuel tax.

John Logue – Absolutely

not. We are currently paying

close to 70c per litre in fuel excise

tax and then are slugged another

15 per cent on top.

I have just topped up my car

and paid over $12 in tax!

The fuel excise tax already has

provision to be spent on roading.

Tell Crs Keown and Clearwater

to stick their tax right up where

the sun don’t shine!

Chris Buckley – According

to the AA about 60c a litre is tax

to fix our roads and yet as many

people have pointed out our

roads are in a shocking state in

general. Never mind being compensated

for tyres and shocks,

what about loosened fillings.

It’s not about the amount of

money, it’s about the waste of

money at all levels of Government.

Our leaders pontificate and

make promises but ultimately

the implementation is left in

the hands of tinpot bureaucrats

whose agendas don’t necessarily

align with what is best for

our communities. It’s not just

the roads that are suffering. All

infrastructure is underfunded at

the expense of social spending.

If you asked the average Kiwi

if they would rather have good

roads, safe drinking water,

genuine high speed broadband or

flowers in the roundabouts and

pretty flags hanging from the

lamp posts. What do you think

they would say?

Karla Mccreath – If they

would fix it properly the first

time there wouldn’t be an issue.

Maybe cut back on the billion

dollar new library or the stuff we

don’t actually need. People are

finding it hard to live financially

now.

Leonie Rich – I think our

petrol is already climbing in

price. Cut back on other projects.

I am a community caregiver and

don’t get enough money to cover

running my car.

Graeme Brown – Quote:

“You’d pay a bit extra for your

fuel to have really smooth roads

that work.” What a joke – even

the roads that have been fixed

still are not smooth and if they

are, they are dug up again within

two to three months. Just look at

the new bridge that was put in at

Wigram Rd, had such a big drop

in it that was a joke and this is

brand new.

Plus fuel in some places in the

North Island can be up to 50c

cheaper than down here.

Linda Dimmock – We’ve

recently been to Christchurch.

Petrol was dearer, we presumed

it was because of the earthquake.

As we drove back to Auckland,

the petrol got cheaper. Seems

Christchurch is already paying

more.

Ryan Jared – NO! Because

we are already paying more than

we should . . . so what are they

doing with all that extra money?

Taxing fuel, taxing cigarettes

might as well start taxing all

food including fruit and vegetables.

Oh yeah, and alcohol

too! This country is becoming

pathetic.

Samantha Samiyah-jade

Stephens – Aren’t we charged

and taxed enough? Petrol is

already so high in Christchurch

compared to further up. We have

a perfectly good port it can come

into but instead it comes down

from Auckland so we already get

charged more. Don’t be so awful

on Christchurch people. Rates

went up to fix infrastructure –

the Government will lose Chch

people to other cities the more

they penalise them. We shouldn’t

be suffering further.

Plans for a better NZ

Developers confident

ONE OF the best parts of being

a Member of Parliament is that

I often have a lot to be proud of,

from the people of Christchurch

that I meet daily across our

many communities to my

Parliamentary colleagues who

go to Wellington to speak on

behalf of New Zealanders who

need our help.

I was especially proud on

Sunday of Andrew Little,

when he spoke about Labour’s

commitment to change the

Government in 2017.

Along with the Green Party,

Labour has set out our plan to

build a better New Zealand,

and that means a future for

everyone. There will be homes

for our young people, a fully

funded public health system and

the best education that can be

provided for our young. We’ll

grow the economy, back our

businesses and we’ll pay down

the Government debt that has

hit a record high under Bill

English. We have a history of

delivering for New Zealanders

in the past and that’s going to

continue when Andrew is prime

minister.

Labour will be a government

that creates opportunity, ensures

our freedom and lets us all have

a fair share.

National won’t do any of

this. Under their watch, the

dream of homeownership has

slipped away for too many.

People seeking the healthcare

and treatment they require have

been turned away or forced to

wait. They’re all too eager to

push issues that urgently need

addressing under the carpet,

Megan Woods

instead of working to find

solutions to long-term problems,

like climate change. National is

tired, and they’re out of ideas.

On Sunday, Andrew outlined

Labour’s vision for a New

Zealand that is fair, inclusive,

and works for everyone. This

week on Tuesday, he shared

this vision with more than 200

Cantabrians gathered at the Blue

Smoke in Woolston. It was great

to have Adam from The Eastern

along as well, and there was a

buzz in the room as Andrew

spelled out Labour’s plan to

change the Government.

Andrew stands for a better

New Zealand and I’m proud to

stand with him. Later this year,

we are heading to the polls.

If you want better housing,

better health and better schools;

if you share our vision, join

our movement to change the

Government.

Megan Woods is Labour’s

Canterbury spokeswoman

THROUGHOUT Christchurch’s

recovery, I’ve been heartened

by the number of investors and

developers willing to put their

money where their mouth is and

back the city’s future.

Announcements of new

developments – whether office

or retail blocks, new cafes

and restaurants or large-scale

projects like the Christchurch

Adventure Park – send a clear

signal that Christchurch will

bounce back, better and stronger

than before.

This week brought the news of

exciting progress on Moorhouse

Ave and is another example

of the strong momentum

continuing in and around the

city.

Consent has been lodged

for a new complex to be built

on the southeast corner of the

Moorhouse Ave and Colombo St

intersection.

The complex will offer retail

and office space and will replace

what’s currently there, which is a

car park and signage lot.

The south side of the central

city has great possibilities and

the industrial feel of the area

should be taken advantage of.

That’s how cities like London

and Melbourne have come to

Gerry Brownlee

thrive, by transforming areas

that have long been neglected.

Parts of this transformation

are already happening, with

another retail complex under

way on the neighbouring site,

which used to be home to

Science Alive! and Hoyts.

These are substantial projects

showing the confidence

developers have in the city’s

future.

On another note, the

Yard Project, a Corrections

and Housing New Zealand

programme involving prisoners

refurbishing some red zone

properties, is onto its 50th house.

Once finished, these houses

will go back into Christchurch’s

social housing stock, providing

homes for those who need them

most.

Christchurch’s population is

growing because people see the

city as a place to work and play

and this Government is ensuring

both can happen.

Fashion

Gift for illustrating the latest trends

Instagram is a

treasure-trove of

undiscovered talent. Amy

Parsons-King talked to

Christchurch-based fashion

illustrator Renuka Malik, of

@nukaillustrations, about

her love of fashion,

technology and design

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

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

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 is a Christchurch-based fashion

illustrator.

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.

Gardening Advice

with

Be in to win a

PRIZE

$100 PACK!

QUESTION: My gardening question is

regarding citrus. The leaves on my 2-yearold

lemon tree appear to have a yellow hue

and subsequently dropped off. It doesn’t appear to be dire straits yet as

there are lemons still blossoming but I’m concerned about how to promote the

growth of future leaves.

Like Daltons Ltd

on Facebook

Congratulations! Today’s winning question came from Rebecca McNaughton

ANSWER: Usually, yellowing leaves on citrus plants indicates a nutrient defi ciency, especially a lack

of nitrogen. However, this does not always lead to leaf fall, therefore there are other possible reasons

why your plant is being defoliated. The two-year-old tree may have become excessively dry over the

hot summer months or been exposed to strong winds which can cause defoliation.

At this time of the year, mulch with Daltons Compost or pea straw, and water deeply 2-3 times a week.

Citrus are known as ‘heavy feeders’ so apply Daltons incredible edibles ® Citrus Fertiliser just

outside the branch ‘drip line’ at 4-6 weekly intervals from late February/early March through to early

April and add a good side dressing of compost. Recommence applications from late October to early

December. Ensure you water your fertiliser in well to wash nutrients into the root zone.

Remove any fruit or fl owers as they appear for the next 6 months to 1 year. Tempting as it may be to

leave them on, removing during the early years helps the tree establish a strong framework, without all

its energy and nutrients going into fruit. Your tree will last longer and be much healthier if you do this.

For more advice, read How to Grow guides at www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides

Even if you’re the most

hands off gardener, the

most important task to do

during the summer months

is apply mulch around

plants, especially those

in pots. Mulching is vital

in maintaining a healthy

garden and hinders water

evaporation - keeping

moisture in the soil. This is

particularly important on

exceptionally hot or windy

days and helps prevent

plants from wilting. Always

create a clean slate and

remove all weeds before

applying your mulch.

Travel

Chill out in the thermal springs

• By Mike Yardley

STEEPED IN Roman heritage

and swooned over as Britain’s

premier spa destination, Bath’s

architectural flourishes can’t fail

to impress.

Boasting Britain’s only natural

thermal springs, immerse yourself

in the warm, mineral-rich waters,

just as the Celts and Romans did,

over 2000 years ago. The Thermae

Spa is where to head for the ultimate

immersion experience.

I always enjoy taking a sizzling

soak after admiring the World

Heritage-listed Roman Baths, a

stirring monument of engineering

prowess where natural hot water

still flows through this extraordinary

temple and its cavernous

labyrinth of bathing rooms.

Lording over the thermal baths

is Bath Abbey, the last of the

great English medieval churches

which was built in 1499. Following

dissolution in 1539, the abbey

was sold into private ownership,

before being returned to

the city’s purview in 1572. But

it’s the Georgian architecture

that looms large as Bath’s calling

card; a living, breathing museum

of graciously curved buildings,

principally designed by masterly

town planners, Ralph Allen and

the two John Woods’ – the elder

and the younger.

Throughout the 1700s, the

streets of Bath were flanked in the

fashionable Palladian style and

Georgian-style townhouses. Size

up the splendour of John Wood’s

Queen Square, the gold-standard

of Palladian design, built to provide

visitors to the city the same

sense of grandeur that they were

accustomed to in their country

estates.

The Circus and the Royal

Crescent are both masterpiece

triumphs of urban living, with the

artful curvature of these multistorey

stone buildings. And the

grand stone Pulteney Bridge is the

only historic bridge, apart from

Florence’s Ponte Vecchio, that was

built with shops incorporated into

it. Take a boat ride on the River

Avon to intimately size up the

ANCIENT: Pulteney Bridge (left) incorporates

shops. (Right) – Take a sizzling soak in the

World Heritage-listed Roman Baths.

sheer splendour of the bridge.

Catering to the social needs of

the ever growing city, John Wood

the younger built Bath’s Assembly

Rooms in 1769. This gracious

complex comprising the Ball

Room, Tea Room, Card Room

and Octagon were the nerve-centre

of 18th century society life.

A wondrous collection of

contemporary and period dress is

showcased on-site, in the Fashion

Museum, which rekindles a sense

of the high-life and formal balls

that the Assembly Rooms bore

witness to.

If you want to add some tinglefactor

to your Bath escape, book

into the charming family-run

boutique property, Three Abbey

Green. Situated in a deliciously

tucked away cobbled square, all

of Bath’s banner draws are just a

stone’s throw away.

Irrepressibly Georgian in

wood panelled walls and original

fireplaces, the house is blended

with harmonious contemporary

comforts.

This dream B&B experience

is run by Nici and Alan who are

faultlessly delightful hosts and

will ensure your Bath break is

simply unforgettable. Head to

www.threeabbeygreen.com

If you’re a Jane Austen fan, don’t

miss the eponymously named

centre, that showcases Bath’s

most famous resident. The centre

provides a snapshot of life during

Regency times and how living in

Bath influenced Jane Austen’s life

and her writing.

Costumed guides, film footage

and authentic period exhibits

make this attraction a winner,

topped off with a pot of real leaf

tea in the upstairs Regency Tea

Room, where Jane once slept.

It’s also a great perch for a

sublime rooftop panorama over

the city centre. Afternoon tea is a

seriously big business in Bath and

another great venue is the Bath

Priory, built in 1835 as a private

residence.

Discreetly situated on a treelined

road, this Gothic confection

makes for a picturesque setting.

Their full afternoon tea service

includes a selection of freshly cut

sandwiches, scrumptious homemade

cakes and warm scones

served with clotted-cream and a

local preserve.

For extra decadence, enjoy a

glass of Perrier Jouët Champagne.

Indulgence Café and Patisserie is

another stand-out option, located

by the luscious Sydney Gardens.

The creative precision that goes

into every dessert has made

Indulgence a truly exemplary

Crowe reunites with old car

• By Gordon Findlater

TREVOR CROWE has been

reunited with the same BMW

635 he drove to success in New

Zealand more than 30 years ago.

That’s an awfully long time

ago.

However, when you ask

Crowe about his age, all he will

give away is that he’s not as old

as New Zealand single-seater

racing legend Ken Smith who

is 74.

Crowe and his former BMW,

now owned by V8 and touring

car legend Jim Richards, will

compete in the Archibalds

historic touring cars event at the

weekend’s Skope Classic at Mike

Pero Motorsport Park.

Crowe drove the exact same

car with two-time Bathurst

champion Tony Longhurst in

the mid 1980s. The pair won the

North Island endurance series

and were leading the Wellington

500 street race before the vehicle

broke a strut.

victory in the super cup event

will be current South Island

champions Lionel Green and

Shane Breach.

There will also be a B final to

give the next tier of competitors

a chance to gain the last final

spot.

The second round of the super

cup will then be held at Invercargill’s

In Brief

TRIATHLETE’S THIRD WIN

Ari Graham has continued to

dominate the junior triathlon

circuit with her third win of the

national series at Takapuna Beach,

Auckland, at the weekend. The

Southshore athlete was crowned

winner at both the House of

Travel and Future ChampioNZ

festivals in Christchurch and

Taupo respectively in December.

The final two races of the series

will take place in Wanaka this

month and Wellington in March.

Graham has her eyes set on the

remainder of the series and, with

a gap year ahead of her to work

part-time and focus on training,

the youngster will be one to watch

out for this year.

GOLF TEEN WINS IN OTAGO

Canterbury juniors led the

way in the Otago men’s golf

championship at the weekend.

Hiroki Miya, of Russley, won

the event and Tom Parker, of

Christchurch, finished second.

Miya, 16, was impressive from tee

to green at the Otago Golf Club,

finishing on a par 284 for the

four rounds to win the title and

beat Parker, 17, by seven shots.

Canterbury’s success continued in

the women’s three-round event,

with Juliana Hung, of Russley,

finishing 10 shots ahead of

Otago’s Annabel Evans.

LESLIE’S BIG LUGE SEASON

Jack Leslie has finished third

overall in an international luging

series. Leslie, 19, who lives in

Christchurch and is coached in

Naseby, won the 2016/17 Natural

Track Junior World Cup series.

His third placing in the final race

last week in Unterammergau,

Germany, was not enough to

clinch the title. In the season’s

four races, Leslie finished first,

second and third twice. Fifty

athletes from 17 countries

competed in the series. Leslie

has now returned to the senior

circuit for the final two races of

the season. He is currently racing

at the senior world championships

in Romania this week.

How many words of three or more letters can you

make, using each letter only once? Plurals are

allowed, but no foreign words or words beginning

SUDOKU

Fill the grid so that every row,

every column and every 3x3

box contains the digits 1 to 9.

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.

OVER 1000 VEHICLES

Motorbuys

TM

• 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, 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 left-hand-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

sixth-generation 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, 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 fourcylinder

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,

it works away with a

tantalising growl and bark

out the exhaust pipes.

There is the choice of

a six-speed 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

FORD MUSTANG: Capable high country charger.

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.

• Price – Ford

Mustang, $77,880

• Dimensions –

Length, 4784mm;

width, 1916mm;

height, 1391mm

• Configuration – V8,

rear-wheel-drive,

4951cc, 306kW,

530Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6sec

• Fuel usage –

12.6l/100km

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-to-date 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

high-country 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

new Mustang being so

incredibly successful,

it’s only a matter of time

before other icons of the

muscle car age roll off the

production line.

Extending

outdoor living

Rain and wind-proofing an outdoor space adds value to a

property. With a roof or clear vinyl sides, your buyers can

see an area where rain doesn’t stop play.

Thanks to blitz advertising,

most Kiwis have heard the name

Archgola. The company and

others like it can add canopies

to decks, enclosing the space for

year-round use.

Undercover verandas, pergolas

and gazebos can be turned into

living space by adding side

panels, which effectively create a

conservatory. Restaurants often

use these spaces, so there’s no

reason why home owners can’t as

well.

Roll-down clear vinyl blinds are

a popular choice, which, if you’re

lucky, can be bought ready made from

hardware stores such as Bunnings

and Mitre10. If not, there are plenty

of companies that will custom

manufacture to fit. Usually these blinds

zip into place and are stored using a

rope-and-pulley system.

Mounting your blinds is very simple.

Typically it involves screwing the

mountings into wood or installing a

track then fitting the blind.

Other options include roll-up shade

cloths or other gazebo or veranda

sides, such as canvas. These aren’t as

windproof as the vinyl blinds, meaning

they’re not a 12-month solution.

If you don’t already have an outdoor

living space, building a pergola doesn’t

generally need planning permission..

Provided the pergola is less than 10

sq m in size, it is usually okay to add

a roof. But a quick call to the council

is a good idea; never risk building an

unpermitted structure.

Another option for quick and easy

rain and windproof outdoor living

is a pop-up gazebo. These can be

turned into dining areas to give buyers

a glimpse of what they could do

themselves.

It’s important to dress them so it

doesn’t look like you’ve just plonked

a gazebo on the lawn. Lights, plants,

furniture and even place settings

can really give a gazebo the Pinterest

touch and bring it to life as an outdoor

entertaining hub for the home.

The more you pay for pop-up

gazebos, the better UV protection of

the fabric and powder coating of the

steel you get.

Heating the outdoor space also

makes it more usable. The cheap option

is a patio heater. Permanent gas, wood

or pellet fireplaces and fire pits are

easier on the eye and can make a

design statement, all-important

when selling a home.

For wind protection, it’s

reasonably simple to erect trellis

and staple brush sides to it or the

existing fence.

Bamboo is particularly good

for this purpose, especially if

you have access to a free source -

although you could also buy it at

all good hardware stores.
