Migrants

drive

down

pay rates

• By Gabrielle Stuart

PAINTER BEN Creagh used to

earn $43 an hour.

Now he can’t get a full-time job

unless he accepts the minimum

wage of $15.25 – and he isn’t

prepared to do it.

Mr Creagh’s situation is similar

to many others in Christchurch,

trade unionists say, where overseas

workers coming into the city

for the rebuild are prepared to

work for much less.

Latest statistics show that

1564 foreign workers came to

Christchurch last year, more than

a quarter of them unskilled under

the Government rebuild worker

scheme.

Employers have told Mr

Creagh, 36, there are so many

foreign workers willing to work

cheaply, they won’t pay more.

“It’s embarrassing. But basically,

people aren’t willing to pay

what tradies are worth,” he said.

Mr Creagh (left) said he lost his

job about six months ago when

work at the company which employed

him dried up.

Since then he had been getting

by on short contract jobs, but

with three children, he said that

was a struggle.

In the past three years, 6292

foreign workers have been

brought in to Christchurch to

help with the rebuild.

But the number of Cantabrians

on Jobseeker benefits has grown

over that time, with about 1000

extra people signed up each year

for the past three years.

There were 10,357 Cantabrians

on Jobseeker benefits in December,

with 4565 of those classed as

“work-ready.”

E tu construction union organiser

Ron Angel agreed many

locals were struggling to compete

against foreign workers for jobs.

“Employers don’t have to pay

Kiwisaver or retirement contributions,

so that’s a three per cent

saving right there. They can pay

foreign workers less, because

Kiwis want more and won’t

work for minimum wage. And

they don’t need to pay overtime,

because overseas workers want

as much work as they can get, so

they will accept more hours without

overtime pay,” he said.

YOU HAVE to sympathise

with Ben Creagh (see page 1).

He is caught up in a

dilemma many tradies and

others are currently facing –

work for a lot less than they are

used to.

Work is drying up in the

city, particularly for painters,

but the Government still has

a relaxed policy for migrant

workers coming for the

rebuild.

Many of them are unskilled.

They will work for the

minimum wage of $15.25 with

no extra benefits on top, and

they will work on call.

Ben is refusing to accept

those pay rates and, as a result,

he can’t get a full-time job.

Is that fair?

No luck so far I’m afraid in

the hunt for Raewyn Wahnig’s

stillborn son’s ashes (see page

4), stolen when her house was

broken into.

If you know where they are,

drop them at a police station or

phone me (021 359 426), and

we’ll get them home.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw Riccarton Racecourse established on

March 6, 1856. On the same day in 1914 the first point-to-point

flight from Christchurch to Timaru took place. The pilot was J.W.

H. Scotland. In the same year, Scotland had the dubious privilege

of becoming the first pilot to crash in New Zealand. On March

7, 1925, the Cholmondeley Home for children (a gift by Hugh

Heber Cholmondeley) opened at Governors Bay. On March 8,

1958, Christchurch athlete Marise Chamberlain (right) broke

the world record for running 440 yards. On March 9, 1880, the

first steam trams began operation from Cathedral Square to the

railway station. On the same day in 1963 jazz trumpeter Louis

Armstrong performed in Christchurch. On March 12-15, 1927,

the Duke of York (later King George VI) visited the city.

IT’S THAT time of the year again.

GirlGuiding New Zealand’s 2017 biscuit

selling season is under way. The biscuits

have been sold for 60 years – with the

was developed and sold in large square

tins in 1957. Stalls will pop up all over

the country, and door-to-door sales from

pippins, brownies, guides and rangers

will take place over the next four weeks.

Although the newer chocolate and mini

biscuits are popular, the old favourites are

still original.

Sick bed to City2Surf

• By Gabrielle Stuart

TURNAROUND: Leanne Crawford has put poor health behind her and is looking

forward to the City2Surf.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

JUST A year ago, Leanne Crawford could barely walk, had lost 30kg,

was constantly sick, and had to put both her work and her wedding

on hold – and she had no idea what was going wrong.

This month, she will take on the 14km The Star City2Surf with

Mike Pero Real Estate event, which she will walk, and she won’t

be doing it alone.

Her partner, friends and many of the nurses who helped her

get on her feet again plan to do the walk beside her – 41 people

in total – raising money to help others with the same condition

get treatment.

The 30-year-old began feeling sick in 2014, but initially

doctors did not know what was wrong.

It took almost two years for her to be diagnosed and find

a treatment, because she was facing a complex mix of parasites

in her intestines, crohn’s disease and endometriosis.

For much of that time she couldn’t work, and she had to

postpone her wedding three times.

“It was like my life was turned upside down. It was

really, really frightening just not knowing what was

going on,” she said.

After a Christchurch gastroenterology specialist,

Steven Ding, diagnosed her problems, she has made

a gradual recovery.

But she said it was only possible because of

the help she received, and the diagnosis tools

provided by the Canterbury Bowel and Liver

Trust.

The things that finally got me well cost a lot

of money, so I wanted to give something back,”

she said.

She has already raised almost $1500 through

people sponsoring her run.

She said she had never done anything like the

City2Surf before, and after being sick for so long

being able to cross the finish line would feel like

a giant victory.

“I’m sure there will be tears,” she said.

“I finally feel like I’ve got my life back. I can’t

go for drinks or dinner like normal, but I am

still able to work, which is amazing.”

She works for Bupa as an activity organiser,

and said they held her job for her, in spite of the

fact she was off work for three months.

She has also rescheduled her wedding, and

plans to marry her partner of eight years, Craig

Corboy, this December.

“I’m determined I’m going to get down the

aisle this time,” she said.

$1000 REWARD

Police are speaking to a witness

who said he saw a vehicle in a

Burwood paddock where a horse

was attacked and needed to be

destroyed. Gus, a seven-year-old

standardbred, had to be shot

by a police officer after he was

found badly injured at about

5am on February 18. Owner

Karina Romeyn said she has

passed on the details of a man

who came forward and said he

saw a vehicle chasing the horse

on the morning Gus was found

hurt. She has offered $1000 on

top of $278 raised on a Givealittle

page to be given to anyone who

has information that leads to

a conviction. Information can

JELLYFISH WARNING

Blue bottle jellyfish have been

washing up on the city’s beaches

over the last week. The jellyfish

make a regular appearance during

summer, and the city council’s

coastal park rangers are warning

people to stay away from them to

avoid being stung. Head ranger

Kelly Hansen said they had

received reports of them from

Sumner to North Beach. Blue

bottles have venomous tentacles

which sting, and leave red welts

on the skin.

BID TO REPLANT RESERVE

Fear that son’s ashes

may be gone for good

• By Julia Evans

SHATTERED Raewyn

Wahnig is resigned to the

fact she may never get her

stillborn son’s ashes back.

The ashes were taken

during a burglary of her

Linwood house two weeks

ago.

Police appear to have a

few clues to finding the culprit.

But desperate public

appeals for help have not

brought any leads.

Mrs Wahnig just wants

someone to tell her where

they are.

“Even if we just got a note

that says he’s in the bin,

give up hope. They can’t

just say nothing, someone

must know something,” she

said.

Their biggest fear was

that Thomas had been

dumped somewhere, but

now they only want to find

out the truth.

Mrs Wahnig said she

knows he’s been thrown

out and has been kept up at

night telling herself that’s

not the case.

MISSING: Raewyn Wahnig is worried she may

never again see the stolen box with her stillborn son

Thomas’ ashes in it.

She went to The Pawn

Shop on Ferry Rd last week

in case the person who

burgled their house had

tried to sell the $20,000 in

jewellery which was also

taken.

Detective Sergeant Damon

Wells said the priority

is returning the ashes, but

the police want to find the

person responsible.

“If the offender gets a

conscience and wants to

anonymously drop them

at a police station, we’d

be more than happy with

that,” he said.

Brownlee staffer involved in Treasury report

• By Gabrielle Stuart

GERRY BROWNLEE’S private

secretary wrote to Treasury

about what to include in a report

on the anchor projects, it has

been revealed.

But Mr Brownlee, the Minister

supporting Greater Christchurch

Regeneration, later slammed the

same report, saying it was written

by people who “fluff about

the place pontificating.”

The Treasury Major Projects

Performance Report, which was

released in September, flagged

several concerns about Christchurch

anchor projects, including

the Metro Sports Facility and

Convention Centre.

But emails obtained by The

Star show Mr Brownlee’s private

secretary Mike Shatford wrote

to Treasury staff several times

before the report was released,

asking them to change project

rankings, remove information

and delay the release of the

report.

The changes he requested

appear to have been made. But

when The Star asked Mr Brownlee

for his views on the report after

it was released in September,

he said he had little respect for it.

The first change Mr Shatford,

the former Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Authority communications

general manager,

requested was an improvement

to the ranking of the Metro

Sports Facility.

At that point Treasury rated it

amber, which means the project

appeared feasible but significant

issues existed.

Mr Shatford said in an email

to Treasury senior adviser Liz

Innes on August 15 that Otakaro

Ltd had provided an update on

the project, which showed the

“project cost uncertainty had

been sorted” and another issue,

which was blanked out in the

copy of the email provided to

The Star, had been resolved.

“Having received this report,

the Minister (and Otakaro)

felt that this project was more

[amber/green] than amber,” he

wrote.

Ms Innes wrote back later that

day to say the ranking had been

changed to amber/green, which

means successful delivery of the

project is probable.

Three days later, on August 18,

he responded to an email about

a Canterbury Public Sector

CHANGES: Gerry

Brownlee’s

private secretary

Mike Shatford

(left) asked

Treasury to

change a report

warning about

potential issues

with the Metro

Sports Facility.

Rebuild “dashboard” prepared

by Treasury and Ministry of

Business, Innovation and Employment,

which made up part of

the major projects performance

report.

“Minister Brownlee is not yet

happy with the indicators being

presented for public release,” he

said in an email to representatives

of each agency.

Later that day, MBIE government

procurement general manager

John Ivil wrote back to Mr

Shatford about the construction

expenditure graph, which was

part of that “dashboard.”

“We could look to remove the

baseline detail and just show

actual and forecast, which is all

in the right direction,” he said.

That information was cut from

the report before it was released.

Later that month, on August

30, Mr Shatford wrote again to

Ms Innes, asking for the public

release of the document to be

deferred.

His email was titled: “Minister

didn’t agree to public reporting

data being released in its current

format – more work to be done.”

The report was not released to

the public until September 21,

three weeks later.

When asked if the involvement

of Mr Brownlee’s office reduced

the credibility of the report, a

spokesman for Treasury said

that was not the case.

He said Treasury made the final

decisions on what to include

in the reports, but Ministers and

their office staff often had more

up-to-date information than

Treasury did, which had to be

considered.

He said the emails were

written after “frequent conversations”

with Mr Brownlee’s office.

A spokeswoman said Mr

Brownlee stood by his comments

about the Treasury reports.

Thursday March 9 2017

•From page 1

He said many jobs offered also

did not have guaranteed hours,

which left people who had families

struggling.

The Government scheme has

made it easier for foreigners to

move to Canterbury to help with

the rebuild, by “streamlining”

the application process, allowing

workers to stay longer and letting

them change employers while in

Canterbury without having to

reapply for a visa.

Canterbury Employers’ Chamber

of Commerce chief executive

Peter Townsend said he didn’t

think foreign workers were driving

down pay rates.

“A lot of work is going on, and

there is still a high demand for

workers in our city,” he said.

He believed the rebuild winddown

was still at least a year

away, and at that point he said

a lot of effort would be made

to transition people into other

industries, like tourism.

Immigration Minister Michael

Woodhouse said yesterday he

was committed to ensuring

“Kiwis are at the front of the

queue for jobs.”

He said employers who looked

for workers overseas had to first

advertise the job and engage with

Work and Income to see if they

could hire locals first.

“We are constantly monitoring

our immigration settings to

ensure they are fit for purpose

and I’m confident we have those

settings right,” he said.

Bashing victim regains

voice, speaks to police

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE VICTIM of a horror attack

following a Christchurch music

festival was interviewed by police

yesterday after regaining her

voice.

Amelia Rayner, 29, was

punched in the throat when

she and her boyfriend were leaving

Electric Avenue at Hagley

Park just after 11pm on February

25.

She had an operation to have

a metal plate inserted into her

throat to help her breathe.

Her family was worried about

how it could affect her voice.

But her mother, Barbara

Rayner, told The Star yesterday

that Amelia was talking and

doing “really well.”

She said hearing her daughter

speak for the first time

following the incident was “just

wonderful.”

“We’ve been very, very lucky.

She’s just got a bit of healing to

do.”

It is alleged Ms Rayner and

her boyfriend were leaving the

festival when they got into an

altercation with four men.

RECOVERING: Amelia Rayner has regained her voice after she

and her boyfriend were assaulted while leaving the Electric

Avenue music festival. ​

The men allegedly assaulted

her boyfriend, and when she

stepped in to help, she was

punched in the throat crushing

her trachea.

It has been reported that police

interviewed a man believed to

have caused her injury, but no

charges have been laid.

Detective Senior Sergeant

Mark Worner said police

interviewed Ms Rayner on

Wednesday morning.

But he would not give

any details about how it

went.

“Inquiries are ongoing.”

Barbara Rayner said her

daughter did not remember

much of what happened.

Sex attack after

woman leaves

Lincoln concert

A 48-YEAR-OLD woman was

sexually assaulted as she walked

home from the Selwyn Sounds

concert in Lincoln on Saturday.

The woman had left the concert

before it finished and police are

hoping members of the public

saw her.

They also hope someone might

have found a fine gold chain

bracelet with a heart-shaped gold

locket which belonged to the

woman.

The locket has a small diamond

on one side and a keyhole on the

other.

Said Detective Sergeant Phil

Sparks: “She left the concert on

her own at approximately 6.30pm

and walked along Meijer Dr onto

North Belt. It is in this vicinity

that she was grabbed from behind

and pushed a short distance off

the road to where she was attacked.”

Detective Sergeant Sparks said

the attack occurred between

6.30pm and 8pm. The concert

ended just after 8.30pm.

“It was still daylight and

members of the public may have

seen something that can assist in

identifying the attacker,” he said.

Police would like to hear

from anyone who may have

seen the victim leaving the concert.

She is of thin build with a dark

bob haircut, and was wearing a

black straw hat, light grey dress,

brown leather boots, denim jacket

and carrying two small backpacks

when she left the concert.

Police want to hear from

anyone who saw an interaction

between a man and a woman

fitting the victim’s description

within the vicinity of the Lincoln

Event Centre, North Belt and the

surrounding area. They also want

to hear from anyone who finds

a bracelet in the vicinity of the

attack.

Anyone with information

should call police on 363

Peace Of Mind Over Earthquake Claims Is Within Your Grasp -

Let Us Offer You A Helping Hand

Earthquake Services

As a community we have just marked the sixth anniversary of the February 22

earthquake with the opening of the Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial. Our

hearts ached to recall the loss that came about that day. But as we look back let’s

not forget that for some in Canterbury the consequences of the earthquakes are still

very real, and completely unresolved.

We are determined to help settle those claims still unresolved from the 2010 and

2011 earthquakes and allow our clients to move on with their lives. Here’s how we

can help you.

EQC Still Assessing You?

If you are still dealing with EQC to get your claim recognised or to get them to accept

you should be put over cap, we can help get this done. We have had hundreds of

our clients put over cap, and paid out by EQC, over the last 5 years. Many of these

clients had hit a brick wall before they came to us, and did not have the money or

skills to push EQC beyond their cap limit. Our process ensures EQC takes a realistic

view of the actual damage to your home, and the costs to repair it, which very often

means the claim goes over cap.

Getting Nowhere with Your Insurer?

Many homeowners have come to an impasse with their Insurer, and simply don’t

know what to do next. We can get your insurer back on to a path to settle your

claim. Once we get involved, the insurers know they have to justify their position, and

come up with a realistic repair strategy and costing of that strategy. We will advocate

for the repair strategy that we believe is going to fully repair your property to your

policy standard, and ensure you get your full entitlement under your insurance policy.

Concerned Your Damage Was Under Scoped?

Other homeowners know the damage to their foundations was never properly

scoped or was completely ignored by EQC or their insurer, but are unable to get

any action on this. We know what it takes to get EQC or the insurer to accept these

claims, and have the resources to deliver the information and the pressure needed

before they will pay out on these claims.

REPAIR

Worrying about the quality of earthquake repairs by EQC or insurance companies can

be a real headache for some homeowners. If that’s you, we can inspect your property for

free * and advise you on the state of your repairs. We’re here to help everyday Cantabrians

move on with their lives. We are Earthquake Services, claim advocates specialising in

helping people like you sort out your claims and achieve the results you deserve.

Contact us today. We’re here to help.

Worried About Your Repairs?

For many homeowners, doubts also linger about the quality of the earthquake repairs

done by Fletcher EQR or their insurer’s contractors. It’s a known fact that many

earthquake repairs have been sub-standard or inadequate. Foundation repairs such

as epoxying foundation cracks and jacking and packing piles to relevel floors, are not

what the insurers agreed to when they sold their insurance policies with terms like

“AS NEW” as the repair standard. We will inspect your repairs for free*, and give you

an honest opinion on whether you have major damage that has not been repaired.

At best, you will have peace of mind that your repairs are sound. If they are not up to

standard, we will engage with the relevant parties for you to get you your entitlement.

Limitation Act

At some time in the near future, EQC and the insurers will apply the Limitation Act,

which will mean a complete stop to any more payments for earthquake damage from

2010 and 2011. This means thousands of homeowners may be left with a damaged

house that they cannot get repaired without paying for the repairs themselves. To

avoid being one of those people, you need to take action now. Don’t wait until you

know when the deadline is, as you will then be competing with thousands of other

homeowners to get your claim established.

How We Can Help

We carry out a free* inspection of your property for our clients and either give you

peace of mind that all of your earthquake damage has been identified, scoped,

and repaired to the required standard, or give you certainty that it has not. We will

even lift your carpets for free* to check your floor slab is not cracked. If we identify

major damage that has not been repaired, we take on the claim for you and get

you your policy entitlement. You pay nothing until your claim is settled. We cover all

the expert’s reports that are needed, and any legal fees if we need to resort to legal

action to get you your full claim entitlement.

We can help take the pressure off and work with you, and for you, to reach a positive

outcome, or give you peace of mind that your home is fully repaired to the required

standard.

Let us give you a hand

the earthquakes, but we know many have been left behind. For

Red zone

planning day

open to all

A COMMUNITY day will be held

to get input on how to shape the

future of the residential red zone.

Regenerate Christchurch chief

executive Ivan Iafeta said this year

will see a plan prepared for the

regeneration of former red zone

land from Avonside to Bexley and

Richmond to New Brighton.

The Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor

Community Day will be

held on March 25 from 10am-3pm

at Haeata Community Campus,

Wainoni. Everyone is welcome.

“We’re inviting everyone to journey

through an interactive experience

to learn about the land and

river, and then share their thoughts

on how this area could shape an

exciting future for Christchurch,”

Mr Iafeta said.

He said Regenerate Christchurch

wanted to find out what the city

needed and how this parcel of land

could help meet those needs. It also

wanted input from children.

Free guided bus tours of the

red zone are on offer, as well as

fun, family activities including a

sausage sizzle, face-painting and a

bouncy castle.

Role of women in spotlight

• By Bridget Rutherford

ROCHELLE TOURELL has

worked in the construction

industry for a decade and

reckons she can do her job just

as well, if not better, than any

man.

The L.J. Kidd painter is one of

the 14 per cent of women who

work in the industry across the

country.

Yesterday, it was the annual

International Women’s Day,

which calls for equality.

But Ms Tourell said she feels

equal in her line of work, in

spite of being the only female at

most building sites.

“I’ve found every job I’ve

been on I’ve been accepted. I’m

just one of the team and I don’t

expect any more than that.”

She said women could be

more meticulous and could do

the job as well as their male

counterparts.

She first got into the trade

because her partner was a construction

worker. Having always

enjoyed painting, she decided to

give it a go.

It was intimidating initially

with it being a male-dominated

industry. But she doesn’t feel

that way now.

METICULOUS: Painter Rochelle Tourell says she feels equal

to her male counterparts, in spite of working in an industry

dominated by men.

“I think there’s more and

more acceptance of women in

the trade.”

Yesterday, 120 women went

along to a Women in Construction

forum, organised by

Safe/Rebuild and Canterbury

Rebuild Safety Charter, at

By the numbers:

•Women make up 51.3 per

cent of New Zealand’s

population, according to

the latest census

•Nationally, 14 per cent

of those working in the

construction industry are

women

•International Women’s

Day was first held in the

United Nations in 1975

Christchurch Bridge Club.

It was so popular, another

would be held later this month,

which Ms Tourell would attend.

Roofer, TJ Kereru-Daly – one

of three key guest speakers

– said working in a maledominated

industry meant

she had to earn her colleagues’

support, but sometimes it was

harder to do.

Sometimes she was not taken

seriously because of her gender,

she said.

Safe/Rebuild spokeswoman

Jo Duffy said International

Women’s Day was perfect timing

for the forum.

“It seems a very obvious day

to run this forum. We want to

celebrate women in the business

and the timing is perfect.”

Pastor issues challenge to congregation

• By Gordon Findlater

FIJIAN Seventh-Day Adventist

Pastor Jesel Royokada is

challenging his congregation to

step up and enter this month’s

The Star City2Surf with Mike

Pero Real Estate.

Pastor Royokada was inspired

by the Tongan SDA Church’s efforts

at the Summer Starter late

last year, and is being supported

by Healthy Families Christchurch.

“I thought ‘we can do that’.

I’d love to see our church

leading the way, taking exercise

seriously too,” said Pastor

Royokada.

“So when I was talking to

Healthy Families Christchurch

they said ‘if that’s what you want

to do, why don’t you just give it a

try and see what happens?”

Not to be outdone, the Tongan

church matched their entry

numbers, and together they’re

throwing the challenge out even

wider, hoping to inspire other

community and faith-based

organisations.

“It would be great to see

other churches and community

groups taking part,” said Pastor

Royokada.

“It was a great idea, it’s a great

step to combine together and

then maybe we might inspire

the Samoans or other ethnicities,”

said Teuila Saafi, Tongan

SDA youth leader.

The two Pacific churches have

already started preparations for

the March 19 event by exercising

together on Sunday mornings at

Hagley Park – combining prayer

and walking.

“It was good, because we

talked about it before, I said to

Jesel next time bring the Fijians

and now they’ve joined us. It’s

great,” said Ms Saafi.

“I found the Sunday morning

walk fulfilling, by building up

my faith, while also building my

body,” said Pastor Royokada.

Both agreed that physical

health and spiritual health

are linked, but all too often

other things can get in the

way. Combining the two was

healthy lives.

As part of challenging other

churches to enter the City2Surf,

the duo have opened the door

for anyone to join them in their

prayer walks.

“We meet at 6.30am at the car

park in the south end of Hagley

Park and we’d love to have anyone

join us, it would be great to

see some new faces.”

Move to restrict water take

• By Tom Doudney

MEASURES TO restrict,

suspend or revoke water

take consents in a catchment

which feeds the ailing Selwyn/

Waikirikiri River will be

investigated.

The river has had record low

flows this summer and has dried

up along large stretches, including

at once popular swimming

spots such as Coes Ford.

Environment Canterbury will

look into two possible options

to help address the situation

and report back to the Selwyn

Waihora Zone Committee.

One option is that ECan

could issue a temporary water

shortage direction allowing it to

restrict or suspend taking water

from the catchment feeding

the river. Under the RMA, a

water shortage direction can be

applied when there is “a serious

temporary shortage of water”

which could not have been predicted.

It would expire after 14

days but could be renewed.

ECan chief operating officer

Don Rule said this could potentially

affect up to 63 consents in

an area south of Rolleston, of

which about 46 were thought

to have a strong connection to

the river. It was not known how

many of these consents were

March 11-12

already on restrictions.

The other option which

will be looked at is a potential

ratepayer-funded review of “at

the very least” several hundred

water take consents in the vicinity

of the river but Mr Rule said

this would be a longer process.

Such a review would enable

ECan to look at whether any

consents should be altered or

revoked.

The focus would be on surface

and shallow ground water

takes initially,” Mr Rule said.

“Based on my experience,

consent reviews would certainly

not affect this irrigation season,

Both options would be open

Zone committee chairman Allen

Lim supported ECan investigating

the measures but said it needed to

be remembered that climate was

the main factor affecting the current

state of the river.

“If you have to attribute the

28 staff. On top of that it spent

$6447 on flight travel costs for

those who went.

Nineteen Callaghan Innovation

economic development and trade

promotion agency, New Zealand

Trade and Enterprise, attended

costing $4184.

The American conference, held

on November 14-16 at Horncastle

Arena, looked into fast-growing

technologies and how they were

likely to change the economy,

society and the job market.

It was organised by Ministry

of Awesome co-founder Kaila

Emergency alerts on

your mobile phone

THIS week I

announced a new

emergency alerting

system that broadcasts

to mobile phones is

on track to be up and

running by the end of

the year.

Launching a cell broadcast

alerting system is a priority for

the National Government and will

help New Zealanders respond to

the natural disasters we experience

all too often.

Cell broadcast alerting is a

new way of sending information

to mobile phones in a defined

geographical area without people

needing to download an app or

subscribe to a service.

The alerts will look similar to

text messages and are received automatically

– for free – by all cell

broadcast-enabled mobile phones

in the area.

Discussions with New Zealand’s

major telecommunications companies

are progressing well and we

expect to have contracts signed in

the coming weeks.

As no technology is 100 per cent

fail-safe or able to reach everyone

in all circumstances, multiple

channels will continue to be used

to send alerts when emergencies

Gerry Brownlee

happen. These channels include

radio, television, websites, various

social media, smartphone apps, sirens

and others. In Christchurch,

we have warning sirens along the

coast from Brooklands to Taylors

Mistake and the other channels

are used as local authorities determine

appropriate.

It is important to remember

cell broadcast alerts don’t replace

the need for people to pay attention

to natural warnings. This

is particularly important in the

case of earthquakes and potential

tsunamis.

Cell broadcasting will get

information about an emergency

to people faster and more reliably

than ever before. Additionally,

cell broadcast technology works

separately from text messages, so

even when the networks get busy

after a disaster, alerts can still be

sent quickly.

The system is already well established

elsewhere in the world,

in countries such as the United

States, Japan, Israel and Chile.

We said:

Cantabrians’ access to

non-emergency surgery

is now the worst in the

country. The Canterbury

and South Canterbury

district health boards were

ranked worst for elective

surgeries – which includes

everything but emergency

surgery

You said:

Simone Kuhlmann –

Maybe that has something to do

with the fact that they overwork

and underpay their new young

doctors? I mean I wouldn’t want

to work 17-hour days either . .

. let alone operate on someone!

Besides they’re on strike at the

moment anyway aren’t they? My

mother needs surgery on her

ankle again after it was broken

an operated on 1.5 years ago

and it’s been impossible to get

in.

Graeme Palmer – Just as

well I have made the decision

to stay in Dunedin with the

great specialist team that I have

around me rather than move

home to Christchurch.

Amy Kennedy – Only took

six months to get surgery on my

badly broken ankle.

Albert Read – This needs to

be fixed now.

We said:

All is not well between

Lyttelton residents

and their local police.

Residents want local

police on patrol after

hours and on weekends,

and are taking matters

into their own hands with

satisfaction surveys. Even

a former detective has laid

a complaint about police

performance

You said:

Marianne Allison – We

have the same in New Brighton,

I feel so sad for so many people

here getting their cars broken

into and having to pay a $500

excess on insurance.

Sally King – And it’s a

similar story in many small

New Zealand towns. Too many

cut backs and lack of funding

and misguided use of current

precious funding. Small towns

matter too.

Amy Coursey – Nah. They

know, the little town police

officers are quite stretched. We

live in a small town where the

police have a huge area to cover

and can’t get to everything.

Jake Ranginui – It’s election

year, we need to change the

Government. Police are far too

underfunded!

Deborah Kavanagh –

. . . and if the crims didn’t

know before . . . they do now.

Young scapegoats

We said:

The city’s most

dangerous intersections

have been revealed after

city councillor Aaron

Keown hit out at his

council colleagues for not

putting aside $800,000

to fix the contentious

intersection of Harewood,

Breens and Gardiners Rds

in Bishopdale

Lynley Jenkins – A lot of it

would be solved if lights stayed

green for longer, and there were

more right-turning arrows.

Also hefty penalties for red light

runners. People have forgotten

orange means prepare to stop.

Simon Rutherford – This is

just a list of intersections! Where

is the journalism that tells us why

newly upgraded intersections are

considered dangerous like QE II

and Marshland Rd.

We said:

Selwyn Sounds had

Lincoln rocking at the

weekend, with more

than 7500 people at

the concert. The bands

included Mi-Sex, the

Jordan Luck Band and

Dragon

You said:

Maree Reveley – Awesome

bands and great venue. Same

complaints as above though.

Took far too long to get in and

queues for ladies toilets were

absolutely ridiculous. Men’s

urinals ended up overflowing

onto the ground.

Paula Fisher – Great day

and music, but yes more toilets

required and entry queue a bit

long but expected when allowed

to bring food an drink in.

Alan Hane – Great day,

big toilet queues, though, need

more toilets and men’s urinals.

Jackie Ryan – Was

absolutely awesome day

fantastic music and delicious

food, bring on next year.

Tania Adams – hope they

have more loos next year, the

queues where ridiculously long.

BILL English’s

comments last week

that local workers and

particularly the young

fail drug tests, and

this was the reason we

were having to bring in overseas

workers for these roles, made

my blood boil for a number of

reasons.

First, it’s simply not true on the

scale alleged. The Government’s

own figures show that just 150

people a year either failed or

refused to take a drug test out of

the 30,000 people a year who were

tested.

Our prime minister cynically

scapegoated a group of people who

need the Government’s backing

rather than being thrown under

the bus like this in response to

the reporting of all-time high

migration figures.

Instead of an intelligent debate

about employment, he decided to

use anecdotes that had not been

fact checked. But facts matter,

and in this country we expect

our prime minister to use them.

A country’s young people are

one its best resources, so for him

to marginalise and blame them

unfairly is shameful.

While the prime minister and

his party are busy taking pot shots

at our young people, Labour has

been forming plans to make sure

all our young people are ready for

work. Currently, there are 74,000

young people not in education,

employment or training and, last

year, Andrew Little announced

policy to fix this problem.

Andrew did not shy away from

the fact that there are some young

people who occasionally need a

kick up the backside to get them

out the front door, but he also

laid out a plan to help them into

work. For a period of six months,

young people would be offered

employment on community and

environmental projects and paid

the minimum wage.

Mentors will help them

make the most out of this time

and make sure that they learn

important skills like punctuality.

This further adds to our intention

to pay the equivalent of the

dole to employers who take on

apprentices.

Labour is not prepared to throw

our young onto the scrap heap,

we want a future where our young

people have hope and opportunity,

not a prime minister ready to use

them as political fodder.

Rise in

number of

motorists

running

red lights

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CHRISTCHURCH’S growing

red light-running problem is

leaving dozens of injuries in its

wake.

In the past year, there were 65

crashes which left people

injured after drivers ran

red lights, up from 42 the

year before.

At the city’s top 10

worst intersections this

month, almost 5400

drivers ran red lights in a

single day.

That was up 31 per cent from

last year, and 64 per cent more

than in 2014.

They do not include people

turning right across an intersection

on a red light.

The worst for red light-runners

was the intersection of Blenheim

Rd and Mandeville St, where 652

were detected on a single day on

Thursday, December 1.

Police figures have also grown.

In the last year, 1491 people

were ticketed for running red

lights in Christchurch, up from

1316 the year before and 1266 in

2014.

Canterbury road policing

manager Inspector Al Stewart

(left) said he was disappointed to

see the rise.

“It puts people at risk. They

may get away with it 99

out of 100 times, but it is

that one time which could

leave someone injured or

killed,” he said.

He said police had a

focus last year on bad

driving at intersections,

which included red

light-running, and that would

continue until the numbers

improved.

People often had different

excuses when ticketed for running

red lights, but there was no

acceptable reason, he said.

“A lot of people are simply

focused on other things and

don’t see it, but that is just as

unacceptable as running a light

deliberately, because when driving

you should be focused on the

task at hand,” he said.

Cor Vink

Canterbury Museum’s spider-man

Behind the public

displays at Canterbury

Museum is a hidden lab,

with boxes filled with

hundreds of preserved

spiders in vials. It’s

the office of Natural

History curator and

arachnologist Cor Vink.

He spoke to Gabrielle

Stuart

So have you always liked

spiders?

I did. When I was a kid, my

parents loved tramping, so we often

came across spiders. I always

liked predators – anything that

had to kill something the same

size or larger than it to survive I

found fascinating. And they’re so

different to us, so alien, from the

way they feed to their biology.

New Zealand is a very interesting

place to live if you’re

interested in spiders. About 95

per cent of spiders here are found

nowhere else in the world. It is

estimated we have 2000 different

kinds of spiders in New Zealand,

and only about 1200 have names.

The others haven’t been named

STUDY: Canterbury Museum Natural History curator Cor Vink is passionate about discovering and

understanding New Zealand’s spiders.

or studied. And the ones we

know most about are the most

uninteresting ones, the most

common household spiders.

So what does your job

involve?

It’s about half maintaining collections,

and 25 per cent public

interaction, giving talks and that

kind of thing. The other quarter

is research, or supervising students.

And you were involved in

catching the huntsman spider

found recently at Lululemon?

Yes, I was. It’s not the only

huntsman we’ve had here,

though. One was found in

Hillmorton in 2006, and others

popped up regularly in the

same area over a couple of years

afterward – although I haven’t

heard of any there recently. There

were two species often found up

in Auckland. And a chap on our

Facebook page recently posted a

picture of a huntsman and said

he found them regularly at his

work, but he hasn’t replied to my

messages, so I’m not sure where.

Huntsman spiders are not dangerous

to humans, but they are a

predator, so we don’t want them

here because they would eat our

native insects.

What about New Zealand spiders?

Do we have big ones here?

Yes – the Nelson cave spiders

have a leg span of up to 13cm,

and bodies about 3cm in length.

But they vary a lot. Our smallest

would be smaller than a full stop

on a page.

So what is spider-hunting like

when you’re out in the field?

Well, they’re usually active at

night after the sun goes down, so

you need a good head torch. But

it depends what you’re looking at

and where you want to go.

busts the myths about arachnids

Trapdoor spiders are an interesting

one to catch, because they

like to stay inside their burrow

behind the trapdoor. So to catch

them, one researcher – Vikki

Smith – invented a technique

they call “beetling”, where they

tie a leash around a beetle and

walk it up and down outside the

trap to lure the spider out. When

the spider comes out to catch the

beetle they block the door so it

can’t get back in

I wouldn’t like to be the

beetle.

No, but the beetle usually

survives it. Vikki had one beetle

she called Pete, who she kept for

a long time, although I believe he

recently died.

RIP Pete. And when you’re

working in the lab, what kind

of discoveries do you find most

interesting?

I think the most exciting thing

is just to look down a microscope

and realise you’re looking at a

unique species that has never

been seen before.

Have you been able to name

any new species?

Yes, about 30. There are rules

about what you can name them

– they can be about where it is

found or what it looks like, or the

MYTH: Cor Vink said many people believed white tail spider

bites could be deadly, but that was a myth.

people who found them.

Have you given any particularly

interesting names?

Not myself, although there

are some interesting names for

spiders in New Zealand. There

is a genus of tiny spider called

beelzebub, named for the Jewish

‘lord of the flies’. But you can do

some damage if you choose the

wrong name. There is a kind of

cave beetle, which was discovered

by a Nazi supporter, and he

named it hitleri, after Hitler. It is

nothing special, but because of

the name, it is now endangered,

because a lot of crazy neo-Nazis

want it in their collections, so

they hunt them down.

Obviously spiders aren’t popular

with everyone – does that

make it hard to get research or

conservation funding?

Well, they’re not pretty, fluffy

birds, that’s for sure. I don’t need

much research funding because

most of my work is collectionbased.

I have done things like

molecular research, but not a lot

of it, so funding isn’t something

that keeps me up at night.

Are there any spiders that

scare you?

Not really, because I know

they’re not going to go after

you. Some, like the white tails,

are quite creepy and they have

a painful bite. But I’ve worked

with spiders for more than 20

years, and I’ve never been bitten.

What do your children think

of your work?

They’re fine with it. They’re

12 and 10, and they know the

names of a lot of species and

they’re quite good at finding

them, too. They’ve come on

several trips with me, helping me

collect them.

There are a lot of myths

people believe about spiders

– which do you run into most

often?

One of the most common is

that white tail venom is deadly.

It’s not deadly. People will show

you dramatic wounds which,

they say, came from a white tail

bite, but often they didn’t see it

happen. It’s likely just a secondary

infection, which is more likely

to have come from a mosquito

than a white tail. The other one

is that cellar spiders, which most

people call daddy-long-legs, have

highly potent venom. The reality

is, it’s not potent at all. You

would need about 50 bites on a

mouse to kill it. And there’s the

myth about swallowing spiders

in your sleep. It’s true they like

dark places, but not somewhere

wet like your mouth. So I don’t

know where that came from.

Fashion

Runway show for Ronald McDonald House

KIWI FASHION celebrities and

some special models will hit

the catwalk next month to raise

money for Ronald McDonald

House.

The M Factor Fashion Show

for Ronald McDonald House

will bring together New Zealand

designers to raise money for the

charity.

It will take place at The

Foundry on April 1 at 7pm.

Ronald McDonald House provides

a place where families can

stay for free while their children

receive medical treatment.

The family-friendly fashion

show will see collections from

the likes of Andrea Moore,

Augustine, Annah Stretton

and more, including children’s

clothing labels.

It is not just your average

fashion show, as the models

include families who stay at

Ronald McDonald House.

Last year, Tasja and Pyper

Murphy, of Greymouth,

modelled in the fashion show.

Tasja was diagnosed with a

brain tumour in 2013, and the

Murphy family have stayed

at Ronald McDonald House

since then when she receives

treatment.

After the success of last year’s

show, Maree Harris, owner and

events organiser at M Factor

Events, is looking forward to

bringing more glitz, glamour

and fashion to this year’s runway.

It is a charity close to Ms

Harris’ heart, as her twin nieces

and family spent two months

staying at Ronald McDonald

House.

“It’s a really special charity to

me, which is why I am so excited

to use my passion to support

such an incredible cause.”

Ronald McDonald House

South Island chief executive

Matthew Mark said it always

amazed him how Kiwis rallied

to support other families during

what was often described as

the toughest period of their

lives.

“Last year, over 627 families

from across the South Island

stayed at Ronald McDonald

House South Island, and because

we receive no direct Government

funding we rely on community

support.”

GOOD CAUSE: Tasja

(left) and Pyper

Murphy modelling in

last year’s M Factor

Fashion Show. ​

Tickets are available at

ticketmaster.co.nz and are priced

at $75 for VIP, $55 for general

admission and $30 for children

and students.

Funds raised from this event

will go towards taking care of the

Kiwi families who walk through

the doors of a Ronald McDonald

House each year.

Travel

Be seduced by the Spanish city of Cordoba

• By Mike Yardley

IN THE eyes of visitors,

Andalucía’s enduring allure is

legendary, but the textured,

atmospheric appeal of Southern

Spain is spectacularly illustrated

in effortlessly explorable

Cordoba.

I based myself in the heart of

the old city, at a cheap and cheerful

two-star establishment, Hotel

Boston, from where I lapped up

the sights like a perky cub-scout.

Cordoba is the sort of place

that seduces you, from the

moment you arrive. To get an

absorbing overview, jump onboard

a City Sightseeing Hop-on

Hop-off Bus. www.city-ss.com

A thousand years ago, Cordoba

formed the heart of the

Western Islamic Empire, as

capital of the Moorish kingdom

of Al-Andulus. At its peak,

Cordoba was home to half a

million residents, making it

Western Europe’s biggest city.

That’s what really surprised me,

because even though it’s still got

plenty of bustle, Cordoba exudes

a human-scale mystique.

The star attraction is unquestionably

the storied Mezquita,

not dissimilar to Istanbul’s Hagia

Sophia, whereby you’re rewarded

by a two-in-one mosque and

cathedral combo. Built in 783AD

ORNATE: The two-in-one Mezquita is a mosque and cathedral combo. Its interior is a vast forest of pillars and horse shoe-shaped

arches.

by the Moorish conquerors on

the site of a very early Christian

church, they demolished the

church to create this artistic treasure,

which they wanted to rival

the world’s great mosques.

Entering its cavernous expanse,

I was transfixed by its

vast forest of pillars and horse

shoe arches, which look a bit like

candy canes, with a two toned

ochre and cream colour scheme.

When the Spanish Catholics reconquered

Cordoba, mercifully,

they didn’t destroy the building,

opting instead to hide the minaret

within a new bell tower, and

plonking a church within the

mosque’s existing fabric.

Fast forward 1000 years and

a major sticking point today is

that Muslims cannot pray in the

Mezquita, given it’s a practising

Catholic church. They’ve

appealed to the Vatican to grant

them a prayer room, without

success. Several years ago, a

group of Muslim tourists started

mass-praying within the building,

causing a huge stink, which

resulted in several security

guards being stabbed.

How sad that such an incredible

masterpiece of world heritage

is racked with resentment, which

underscores Spain’s inner-turmoil

about its contested sense of

identity and shared history.

If you want to marvel at this

building, before the ravenous

hordes of tourists swamp it,

jump up early and enjoy the

early morning free admission,

between 8.30am and 10am. Beyond

the Mezquita, lose yourself

in the time-honoured Juderia,

the Old Jewish quarter.

This labyrinthine neighbourhood

of twisting laneways is

not overtly touristy or commercialised.

You can also see the

13th-century synagogue which

was converted into a church,

when the Spanish monarchy

expelled the Jews from Spain.

It’s the perfect place to wander

aimlessly, in the maze of cobbled

lanes with shady flower-filled

courtyards. It’s peaceful, timeless

and quintessential Cordoba.

Another reason to rise early,

is to hot-foot it down Puente

Romano.

Walk the maze of cobbled lanes and courtyards

•From page 29

Spanning the Guadalquivir River,

this grand old Roman Bridge turns

on a celestial light show (below). In

a scene straight out of a fairytale, as

the rays of the rising sun caresses

the honey-hued limestone bridge,

the resulting mirror reflection on

the water, produces a sensational

“river of gold” mirage.

Much of Cordoba’s medieval

architecture is constructed in the

honey-coloured stone, so the magic

hours of the rising and setting sun

create a photogenic feast.

Central to the local way of life

is the cherished – even revered –

patio. Throughout most of May the

annual Festival of the Patios

is a source of incredible local

pride, and a monumental tourist

draw.

Even back in the days of the Romans,

Cordoba homes were built

with a central patio or courtyard, as

a trusty refuge from the scorching

heat.

The tradition was enhanced by

the Moors, with stone mosaics,

ceramic tiles and water features,

vividly accentuating the decorative

touches to the patios.

May is a magical month to

plan a visit to the city, when over

50 patios, tucked away behind

heavy doors and iron gates, are

thrown open for public viewing,

for free.

It’s a tantalising encounter with

authentic Cordoba living and you’ll

notice that patio decoration is not

only a big business, but powered

by plenty of “keeping up with the

Joneses” rivalry.

Gardening

Pretty nemophila for pots or planting

• By Henri Ham

STRONG: Water black penny regularly

for a good show.

For more

gardening

inspiration,

pick up the

latest issue of

kiwigardener

NEMOPHILA IS a lovely annual

that produces masses of tiny, pretty

flowers.

The individual flowers are small

and delightful, but planted on

mass, nemophila looks stunning

and striking. Google nemophila

at Hitachi Seaside Park in Japan

for a glimpse of how spectacular

nemophila can look.

Some of my favourites are snow

storm which has white flowers

with fine pencil markings, black

penny flowers are dark purple with

white edges and blue chip flowers

are blue with white centres. Blue

chip grows to a height of 20cm and

the other two to a height of 10cm.

Try growing a mix of all three or

just one variety to create a strong

statement.

In addition to mass planting,

they look lovely in pots, containers,

borders, baskets and rock gardens.

Once you’ve got your seedlings

simply plant each one around 25cm

from the next in a spot that has full

sun or part shade and moist soil.

In around four weeks you can

expect to see your nemophila

put on their show. Water them

regularly and you’ll help keep the

flower show going longer.

PLENTIFUL: Snow storm in a pot produces masses of individual flowers.

An apple a day

Rachel Vogan says apples are easy to grow and

wonderful to eat – so why not grow your own?

REFERRED TO as the

world’s most popular fruit,

apples are one of the easiest

crops to grow.

They are often classified

as eating or dessert/

cooking apples. If room

isn’t an issue try to plant a

range of apples that mature

at different times, so you

can have a long harvest

period.

POLLINATION

Apples are pollinated by

bees, which move around

apple and crab apple

trees (which are useful

pollinators for apple trees

due to their abundance of

pollen and long flowering

period). If you only have

room for one, make sure

it’s self-fertile, or if your

neighbour has a tree or

two, the bees will move

from garden to garden to

aid in fertilisation.

MAINTENANCE

Young apple trees need

little pruning other than

to train to shape until

the plants have multiple

branches or when they

are starting to take up too

much space. Prune to aid

air and light movement

once established after

harvesting in winter.

Fertilise in spring with

a general-purpose fruit

fertiliser; avoid anything

that is exceptionally high in

nitrogen.

MULTI-GRAFTED

VARIETIES

The expert

horticulturalists, who grow

the trees, graft the apple

variety onto a vigorous

rootstock. These rootstocks

cope with a variety of

soil types and govern the

READY TO PICK: The flavour of home-grown is

best.

eventual height of the

tree. Grafting is nothing

new, it has been done for

centuries, and it allows

for more than one variety

to be grafted onto each

rootstock. Multi-grafted

apple trees are popular

and readily available; some

even come in triple grafts,

ie three varieties of apple

on one tree.

ONES TO TRY

The list of apple trees

available is fairly long, with

well over 100 different

varieties from new hybrids

through to those which

came out with the first

settlers. Here are a few

favourites:

• ‘Golden Delicious’, ‘Red

Delicious’ both produce

large, smooth-skinned

fruit.

• ‘Braeburn’, ‘Gala’,

‘Monty’s Surprise’ and

‘Fuji’ are all reliable, tasty,

flavoursome, crunchy

fruit with good red

colours and tones.

• ‘Granny Smith’,

‘Bramley’s Seedling’ and

‘Baujade’ are all green

cooking-apple types.

• Big is better? ‘Peasgood

Nonsuch’ offers monstersized

fruit.

• Low-maintenance and

tasty varieties include

‘Initial’, ‘Adore’, ‘Ariane’

and ‘Divine’, which all

produce wonderful

apples, and what is even

better is that they are

disease resistant and do

not need spraying.

WHAT YOU NEED TO

KNOW

• Full sun is mandatory.

• For clay-based and heavy

soils, work in grit and

gypsum before planting

to help drain the soil, or

build the site up so water

will not pool around the

base of the trees.

• In light, loose, even

sandy soils, be generous

and load up with

compost and well-rotted

manure. This must be

worked through the soil

to ensure the roots have

something solid to latch

on to.

day routine so it is familiar to you on the

day. You won’t know what the weather

will be like until a couple of days before

so don’t worry about that now, just be

prepared for every weather condition.

This is Christchurch autumn with all its

unpredictable weather patterns from

a warm nor’west day, to snow! So find

some gloves, a hat, a polypropylene top

and a jacket in case you need these. And

don’t forget the sunscreen.

Your training this week is still solid with

the last long run on the Wednesday as

the taper to freshen up the legs starts in

the weekend. If you feel a bit underdone

don’t fall into the trap of doing “catch

up training”. That is putting in some

extra sessions or going a bit longer and

harder than indicated. You take a risk of

injury or excessive tiredness and it is too

late to have much of an effect anyway,

so relax and stick to your plan!

TIP OF THE WEEK

A normal breakfast

before you take part in

an endurance event is

taken 2-3 hours before

the event. It should

consist mainly of slow

release carbohydrates,

also called foods with a

low glycaemic index.

Low GI foods include oatmeal (rolled

oats), skim milk, most fruits (except grapes,

watermelon and banana’s), nuts and whole

meal bread. In the 2 hours before the event you

don’t need much. You can sip on a sports drink

or have a banana if you feel hungry but you

don’t want to start with a full tummy and the

right breakfast will keep you going till the finish.

The nutritionists at SportsMed can assist with

your nutrition if necessary.

Firepower for Crusaders ahead of Reds clash

AN EXPECTED call-up for

former Wallaby Digby Ioane

will add extra firepower to the

Crusaders side that stirs more

nightmares in the Reds ranks

than any other team.

The Crusaders have averaged

six tries and 47 points, when

demolishing the Reds four times

since they met in the 2013 finals

series.

They meet the Reds on Saturday

night in Brisbane.

Harewood amateur in

New Zealand Open

• By Gordon Findlater

MATT MCLEAN has claimed

one of only six spots out of

172 players who attempted to

qualify for the New Zealand

Open.

McLean, 21, will be one of

only four amateurs to tee off

in today’s New Zealand Open

being played at The Hills

and Millbrook golf clubs in

Queenstown. The open finishes

on Sunday.

To qualify, the Harewood

club amateur finished

second in the regional

qualifying tournament at the

Christchurch Golf Club. Then

McLean sealed his spot in the

open by finishing tied for first

in the last stage of qualifying

in Cromwell on Monday.

“I’ve tried to qualify a few

times in the past and haven’t

made it past the first stage in

Christchurch. I was quietly

confident going into Cromwell

because I’ve played there quite

a few times, so I was pretty

proud of myself to get it done,”

said McLean.

He will not only get to play

“I got to see some of them

The amateur is in his fourth

year at Lincoln University on

a golfing scholarship. He also

works part time in the pro

McLean’s aim at the open is

to make the cut for the final

Strike bowler’s 10-wicket bag

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER’S groundsman rolled

the pitch at St Leonards Square

on Saturday morning before

rolling New Brighton’s batting

line-up in the afternoon.

It was the perfect day at the

office for Brendon Wellington

who picked up a 10-wicket haul

in the first day of a two-day

match in the Metro senior A

competition.

Sumner were asked to bat and

scored a first innings total of

294/8 before it became the Wellington

show. The groundsman

come left-arm strike bowler had

career best figures of 7-30 as

New Brighton were dismissed

for 151 in just the 22nd over.

“It helps knowing where the

juicy parts in the pitch are,” said

Wellington.

The home side then enforced

the follow on, allowing Wellington

to complete his 10-wicket

haul before the day was done as

he picked up 3-28 prior to the

close of play.

“I did some pretty good celebratory

moves . . . I even pulled

out a special celebration, the

chainsaw.”

New Brighton will resume on

88/4 in the second day of the

match on Saturday, still 55 runs

behind Sumner.

Warriors contract not out of the question for Kahu

KIWI international Jordan

Kahu says he is open to a

return to New Zealand and

possible contract with the

Warriors.

THe skilful Broncos star has

been gaining local attention

in the Brisbane media with

speculation he may quit the

Wayne Bennett-coached club at

the end of this season.

Kahu told Brisbane’s Courier-

Mail that he will do what’s best

for his young family when it

comes to securing his future

beyond 2017.

THe Kiwi international is offcontract

at the end of this season,

along with a number of his

Brisbane teammates.

While players like Australian

reps Anthony Milford and

Darius Boyd are expected to be

among the first re-signed by the

the air.

young family, but did not go as

far as Milford to say he was only

considering the Broncos.

With his partner Jess Kent due

to give birth to their second child

next month, Kahu said he would

keep all options open.

“I am doing everything for

them right now,” he told the

Courier-Mail.

“I have to make sure I’m

looking after them first and

foremost. I have to see what the

best offer is and make sure I’m

doing the best for my family.

“I haven’t spoken to my

manager about anything yet

but I will be open to anything.

(But) it would be a lot easier if we

stayed here.”

Kahu is yet to speak to his

manager about his contract

negotiations.

THe Kiwi back, whose family

lives in Wellington, was linked to

a possible move to the Warriors

last year but denied the rumours

Thursday March 9 2017

at the time.

However, now that he was

off-contract, he did not rule out

returning to his home country.

“I’ve always thought about going

home,” Kahu said.

“Auckland (Warriors’ base)

is pretty far from Wellington

though and that’s where both of

our families are. But I’m open to

anything.”

Major makeover for

BMW’s versatile X1

Here’s a

selection

of our great

deals!

OVER 1000 VEHICLES

FOR SALE

Best

Motorbuys

TM

• By Ross Kiddie

GIVEN THE importance

of the SUV market,

especially the mainstream/

affordable section,

BMW wasn’t going to let

development wane on its

popular X1.

Recently, it received a

fairly hefty makeover, so

much so that BMW is

calling it a new generation

model.

While the concept has

been retained, the new

X1 has a more chunky,

muscular appearance

providing an aggressive

stance. The interior has also

been revised to offer more

space, and it carries more

kit in terms of innovation.

However, most

importantly, BMW have

revised the engine lineup

in the X1 to include

two brand new engines

– petrol and diesel. All

four powertrains are

more efficient and more

powerful than the previous

generation units.

The test car was

the xDrive20d, as its

nomenclature suggests it

is a four-cylinder, 2-litre,

turbocharged diesel model.

It is rated by BMW at

140kW and 400Nm, and

lays claim to an amazing

4.9-litre per 100km

(57mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage rating.

I wouldn’t dispute

that figure. During my

testing time the fuel usage

readout was constantly

listing around 6.5l/100km

(43mpg) with a stunning

4l/100km (70mpg)

available instantaneously

at 100km/h in eighth gear

(engine speed 1500rpm).

Yes, the engine drives

through a fabulous eightspeed

traditional gearbox.

There are steering wheelmounted

paddles if you

want to take control over

the gear-shifting process,

and if you want to force

sporty performance, sport

mode engine management

protocols are available

through a central consolemounted

switch. It also

offers eco pro mode for

BMW X1: Useful four-wheel-drive system.

economical motoring, or

normal mode; the latter I

far prefer and as you can

ascertain, it still provides

fuel consumption figures

to envy.

• Price – BMW X1,

$80,600

• Dimensions – Length,

4439mm; width,

1821mm; height,

1612mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheeldrive,

1995cc, 140kW,

400Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.6sec

• Fuel usage –

4.9l/100km

And the economy

doesn’t come at the cost

of performance. The

X1 in this form is quick

with a 7.6sec standstill

to 100km/h time. It feels

constantly feisty beneath

the accelerator, and when

the turbo boost really kicks

in through the mid-range

the diesel X1 takes on a

sporty persona.

That is matched by a

well-tuned chassis and

suspension set-up. The

fully-independent set-up is

only moderately firmed so

that ride comfort has a high

priority. Yet the X1 can be

driven like a sports sedan,

it has decisive handling

manners and accuracy is

precise, while body balance

is well controlled.

XDrive simply means

four-wheel-drive, and that

adds in the grip factor.

CLEAN LINES: The X1 is fresh and stylish.

Even when conditions don’t

necessitate full involvement

of four-wheel-drive, the

X1 feels strongly attached

to the road all of the time,

and that imparts a secure

sensation underneath.

I like the way the X1

handles, it is almost

unnatural for an SUV and

takes on the characteristics

of BMW’s desirable sports

sedans; its pedigree shows

up in its performance.

Maximum torque is spread

strongly throughout the

rev range, which means

the slightest throttle

provocation will result in

eager response.

The X1 has also been

refreshed so that occupants

get a comfortable ride. It

can be classed as a true

five-seater, although at just

under 4.5m it isn’t a big

vehicle, but for the smaller

family, it is an SUV which

competes fairly in that

segment. And it has a load

space on par for vehicle

type.

The test car was carrying

a few optional extras,

but even at $80,600 the

xDrive20d represents value

for a premium vehicle,

and bear in mind that the

four-model range starts

at $59,900 for the petrolfuelled

two-wheel-drive

sDrive18d.

For the $80k you get

a host of kit including

satellite navigation, central

display screen, i-Drive

infotainment controller,

dual-zone climate control,

idle stop-start, and

ConnectedDrive, a driver

emergency assistance

platform and concierge

service, just to list a few of

the items.

The specification level is

something BMW does well,

you can option up through

a long list of accessories.

For that reason, the X1

is an important car for

BMW. It is priced so that

buyers can reach the brand

and enjoy the benefits

of a European buying

experience.

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.

ADVICE for maintaining

your home

Trish donates to

Camp Quality

better to hire a tradesperson and get the job

done properly than to make costly mistakes.

By law, some jobs need to be done by

a professional, such as gas, plumbing,

drainage and some electrical work. Major

maintenance matters.

MOISTURE

Damp homes are unhealthy and harder to

heat. Combat persistent damp in your home

by:

• Insulating (under the floor, in the ceiling

and walls).

• Ventilating (including extractor fans in

bathrooms and kitchens, opening

windows, using a dehumidifier or

forced ventilation system and

keeping vents clear).

• Heating (aim to keep the indoor

temperature at a minimum of 16C).

• Replacing unflued gas heaters with

electric or flued gas heaters.

NOTICE OF LOCAL TRANSITION PERIOD

We, the Mayors of Christchurch and Selwyn, give notice that we have agreed to

invoke a period of transition to recovery as outlined in the Civil Defence Emergency

Management Act 2002.

We believe this to be in the public interest and desirable to ensure a timely and

effective recovery.

The transition period is effective from when the state of local emergency expires at

6.00pm on Wednesday 1 March 2017 and is effective for 28 days, ending at 6.00pm on

Wednesday 29 March 2017.

The decision to introduce a transition period under the Act is based in part on the

following:

• Rural fire estimates that firefighters may be on the fire ground for another 3-4

weeks managing the residual fire risk from the Port Hills fire

• Significant rainfall to reduce fire risk is likely some time away

• Residents in the affected areas that have suffered loss, or have been evacuated,

are still feeling vulnerable

• Ongoing psychosocial and general welfare assistance will be required for impacted

residents in Selwyn District and Christchurch City

There will be an ongoing need for cordon/access management to keep

“rubberneckers” out of impacted communities, and also to restrict public access

to some recreational areas due to residual fire risk

• Heightened public information and media interest is likely for some time.

Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel and Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton

Public Notices

The Ministry of Social Development (MSD)

in Papanui is moving to new offices.

Work and Income and Child Youth and Family will now be

located at 56 Langdons Road with the new site opening

at 1:00pm on Monday 13 March.

It’s an important part of our security that we know who

is coming into our sites. Our security guards will have a

quick conversation with people before they come into our

offices to discuss why a person is there, and help make

sure we don’t admit anyone who might represent a risk

to the safety of other clients or our staff.

If the person doesn’t have an appointment, they’ll be

asked for ID, but not having ID won’t mean people can’t

come into our offices.

Our clients now also have access to a wide range of our

services on the phone and online. This includes help with

urgent costs, like food or emergency dental treatment,

using our online service MyMSD.

Thank you from the local MSD team.

Paddy’s Day

While many of us take part in

celebrating St Patrick's Day,

there are probably few

New Zealand's who know much

about the Patron Saint of Ireland

KNOWN as the ‘Apostle of Ireland’, St

Patrick is one of the world’s most popular

saints.

Enslaved as a young teen by pagans and

Druids, he turned to God while in captivity.

Escaping at age 20, he returned to his

family and began studying for the

priesthood.

He preached throughout Ireland

converting many for 40 years. During his

teachings he often used shamrocks to

explain the Holy Trinity - Father, Son, Holy

Spirit.

He died at Saul, the site of the first

church he built, on March 17.

St Patrick’s Day commemorates his

death.
