THEY ARE ruthless, aggressive,<br />

and have represented New<br />

Zealand at 30 international<br />

championships around the world<br />

– but you probably haven’t heard<br />

of them.<br />

Meet Jenny Wilkinson and<br />

Shirley Newton, Christchurch’s<br />

bridge playing dream-team.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y are now New Zealand’s<br />

longest-standing bridge partnership,<br />

playing together since 1989.<br />

This year they will be off again,<br />

flying to South Korea at the end<br />

of the month to compete in the<br />

Asia Pacific Bridge Federation<br />

Championships, then to France<br />

in August for the World Bridge<br />

Teams Championships.<br />

CHRISTCHURCH principals<br />

are worried about the impact<br />

controversial American series<br />

13 Reasons Why will have on<br />

students.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y have sought advice from<br />

school guidance counsellors on<br />

how to deal with the impact the<br />

series may be having on students.<br />

Some have written to parents<br />

and staff to make them aware<br />

of the R18 show, which can be<br />

streamed online, and how they<br />

can respond to it.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Netflix series tells the story<br />

of Hannah Baker, a high school<br />

student who commits suicide. She<br />

leaves behind tapes outlining the<br />

reasons that lead to her decision.<br />

<strong>The</strong> series, which is based on a<br />

2007 Jay Asher novel, also deals<br />

with other highly sensitive issues.<br />

Christchurch Boys’ High<br />

School’s letter to parents said it<br />

was concerned the “revenge fantasy”<br />

series could lead to a “suicide<br />

contagion” and advised parents<br />

to encourage young people not to<br />

watch it.<br />

Headmaster Nic Hill said he<br />

did not think the students should<br />

watch it – but it was likely they<br />

would.<br />

EDITOR’S<br />

DESK<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

News.................................... 3-15<br />

<strong>The</strong> highly controversial but<br />

very popular Netflix series 13<br />

Reasons Why has principals<br />

and parents concerned. And it<br />

is no wonder as it deals with<br />

some very intense issues.<br />

Even though it comes with<br />

an R18 censorship rating, it<br />

is a streamed series making it<br />

highly accessible. Principals<br />

have sought advice from counsellors<br />

on how to deal with<br />

issues that may arise as a result<br />

and, hopefully, their advice<br />

may assist you.<br />

On a much lighter note, tomorrow<br />

exactly 100 years ago,<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> reported a very “solemn”<br />

event in the city (page<br />

4) – the election of the first<br />

woman city councillor. It was<br />

described as a “terrible prospect”.<br />

It is a bit of a chuckle, the<br />

description of the poor lads<br />

“gloomily debating” what Mrs<br />

Ada Wells should be called.<br />

We have two great longreads<br />

this week, Aranui’s<br />

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST<br />

This week in history saw Canterbury University complete its<br />

move from the city to its Ilam campus (right) on <strong>May</strong> 1, 1975.<br />

On <strong>May</strong> 2, 1872, the new St Michael’s Anglican Church was<br />

opened. On <strong>May</strong> 3, 1851, George Gould opened a shop in<br />

Christchurch. <strong>The</strong> business eventually became part of Pyne<br />

Gould Guinness and Co. On <strong>May</strong> 3, 1985, 6000 people rallied<br />

against the All Black tour of South Africa. On <strong>May</strong> 4, 1932, a<br />

strike started at Christchurch Tramway. One of the most bitter<br />

in the city’s history, it lasted 16 days. <strong>The</strong>re were many injuries<br />

and arrests among the strikers. <strong>The</strong> tram sheds were barricaded<br />

with barbed wire, and trams were fitted with wire mesh screens<br />

over their windows to ward off attacks. On <strong>May</strong> 4, 1981, the<br />

southern arterial (Brougham St to Curletts Rd) was opened. On<br />

<strong>May</strong> 5, 1970, Canadian Premier, Pierre Trudeau visited the city.<br />

All you need to know about the Lions tour<br />

A MONTH out from the British<br />

and Irish Lions’ first game, <strong>Star</strong><br />

Media has launched its allnew<br />

Rugby News guide to the<br />

punishing five-week tour of New<br />

Zealand.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Lions Tour Special<br />

Collectors’ Edition is crammed<br />

with match guides, everything you<br />

need to know about the tourists<br />

(and probably a fair bit you didn’t<br />

need to know, too), as well as<br />

expert analysis from former All<br />

Blacks Justin Marshall, Ian Jones<br />

and Craig Dowd.<br />

It’s packed with attitude from<br />

trusted voices.<br />

•From page 1<br />

“<strong>The</strong> awful thing about this<br />

programme is it shows some<br />

benefit to suicide. <strong>The</strong> sad thing<br />

about suicide is we don’t get to<br />

come back and say I told you so,”<br />

Mr Hill said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> letter to parents said as<br />

“teenagers will often do the<br />

opposite of what we ask”, it was<br />

important to<br />

talk to young<br />

people about<br />

some of the<br />

themes in an<br />

“open discussion.”<br />

Christchurch<br />

Girls’<br />

High School<br />

principal<br />

Pauline Duthie said it also sent<br />

an email to parents.<br />

It urged them to check with<br />

their daughters about the show<br />

and its important issues, if they<br />

had seen it, she said.<br />

She said it was harder to monitor,<br />

given it could be watched<br />

online.<br />

But Shirley Boys’ High School<br />

headmaster John Laurenson said:<br />

“It’s a created issue, not a real<br />

issue.”<br />

It comes after a recently<br />

When Phil Gifford asks Colin<br />

Meads for the secrets to the All<br />

Blacks’ success against the tourists<br />

– they’ve lost only one series<br />

– the great man whispers the<br />

name of the Lions captain they<br />

always viewed as a weakness on<br />

the field.<br />

Discover why World Cupwinning<br />

coach Sir Graham<br />

Henry reckons he was not the<br />

right choice to coach the Lions<br />

in 2001, while Steve Hansen is<br />

preparing his side to face what<br />

he considers to be the strongest<br />

Lions side sent down under.<br />

And there’s just enough space<br />

released study, Young New Zealanders<br />

Viewing Sexual Violence,<br />

raised concerns some television<br />

shows featuring violence desensitised<br />

youth to it. It looked<br />

at episodes of Criminal Minds,<br />

Orange is the New Black and <strong>The</strong><br />

Vampire Diaries.<br />

START, a Christchurch<br />

service for abused children, took<br />

part.<br />

Manager Maggy Tai Rakena<br />

said it was concerning how many<br />

explicit scenes were depicted in<br />

popular shows.<br />

She said it could de-sensitise<br />

youth to violence, and many<br />

for England’s “Aussie Eddie”<br />

Jones to have a rant about the<br />

Kiwis pulling all the strings in<br />

world rugby. With seven NZ<br />

coaches at the past World Cup,<br />

he’s probably not far off the mark.<br />

We’ve even got one experienced<br />

New Zealand sportswriter<br />

tipping the Lions to win the<br />

series.<br />

All this wrapped up in 148<br />

pages that honours a man who<br />

played against the touring British<br />

Isles in 1959 and helped shaped<br />

us as a nation – Footrot Flats’<br />

creator Murray Ball.<br />

•More information, page 30<br />

parents may not even know their<br />

kids were watching it.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re is no doubt that pornography<br />

and sexually explicit stuff is<br />

causing problems for the people<br />

we see.”<br />

Linwood College principal<br />

Richard Edmundson said the<br />

school’s guidance counselling<br />

team sent an email to all staff<br />

about 13 Reasons Why.<br />

“My particular concern is that<br />

it’s making something which can<br />

appear to glamorise and normalise<br />

something.”<br />

He said the show could not be<br />

ignored.<br />

CAMPAIGNER DIES<br />

Disability sector campaigner<br />

Alexia Pickering passed away<br />

last Thursday, aged 87. She was<br />

born with spina bifida, and<br />

was a tireless campaigner in<br />

the disability sector, including<br />

introducing the idea of accessible<br />

parking spaces initially trialled<br />

in Christchurch. In 1996 she was<br />

made a member of the Queen’s<br />

Service Order for services to<br />

the community, and in 2005,<br />

was made a Companion of the<br />

New Zealand Order of Merit<br />

for her services to people with<br />

disabilities. Her late husband,<br />

Neville Pickering was a Labour<br />

MP, before being a city councillor,<br />

and mayor of Christchurch from<br />

1971-1974.<br />

NURSES FIND JOBS<br />

More Christchurch nursing<br />

students have found jobs this<br />

year than anywhere else in the<br />

country. Of the 109 Ara Institute<br />

of Canterbury nursing students<br />

who graduated last year, 95 per<br />

cent found work as nurses. <strong>The</strong><br />

national average nursing graduate<br />

employment rate was 73 per cent.<br />

WALKING TRACK SAFE<br />

Geotechnical engineers and<br />

abseilers spent yesterday morning<br />

trying to make a rocky bluff above<br />

Dyers Pass Rd and the Harry Ell<br />

walking track safe. Abseilers used<br />

a crowbar to pry loose an unstable<br />

boulder. It had come lose because<br />

of the water dropped on it during<br />

the aerial assault on the Port Hills<br />

fire.<br />

APPLICATION REVISED<br />

A revised application for a<br />

controversial bottle store on<br />

Trafford St has now been<br />

submitted to the city council. A<br />

hearing was set for the end of<br />

March, for a bottle store at 2A<br />

Trafford St, but it was withdrawn<br />

days before because the applicant<br />

Sarmarth Rajeshkumar<br />

Limbachiya wanted to double the<br />

size, with shorter opening hours.<br />

It has now been publicly notified.<br />

Residents are still vowing to fight<br />

the application.

well travelled<br />

Through competing, Mrs Newton<br />

<strong>The</strong>ir usual policy was “what<br />

they stayed very focused,<br />

IT WAS called “solemn” news –<br />

the most important item of the<br />

Though it sounded like someone<br />

a great tragedy to hit the city, it<br />

was in fact the announcement of<br />

the first woman city councillor<br />

women’s rights campaigner and<br />

Labour candidate Ada Wells was<br />

elected to the city council.<br />

And it appeared that the biggest<br />

problem the city had with<br />

it, was that lads around the city<br />

council tables would have to<br />

change their smoking habits and<br />

figure out what to call her.<br />

<strong>The</strong> lads, according to the article,<br />

“were found gathered in little<br />

a lady member could be a called<br />

‘councillor’ or . . . ‘counciloress’<br />

or ‘councillorine’.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> council has been a masculine<br />

organisation for so long<br />

PUG BOAT. Four-year-old pug Nixon has serious spinal issues and lost the use of his legs. An underwater treadmill helps his<br />

recovery.<br />

Water gets Nixon walking again<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

NIXON IS a remarkable wee<br />

dog.<br />

<strong>The</strong> four-year-old pug has<br />

had spinal issues for almost<br />

two years, and after surgery last<br />

month, Nixon lost all sensation<br />

in his back legs.<br />

Owners Josie and Dan<br />

Mathieson were “devastated”<br />

when he was given just a 50 per<br />

cent chance of walking again.<br />

But, Nixon has been dubbed<br />

the “Benjamin Button” of the<br />

dog world, after, for the first<br />

time in three weeks, he took his<br />

first steps and defied the medical<br />

odds.<br />

“No one really knows how<br />

Nixon is actually standing and<br />

walking right now,” said animal<br />

physiotherapy technician Oliver<br />

Gooday.<br />

He said Nixon couldn’t go<br />

to the toilet on his own, and<br />

needed monitoring to make sure<br />

he didn’t twist his spine.<br />

Mrs Mathieson said Nixon<br />

was “like her child” and she<br />

was devastated when he became<br />

paralysed.<br />

“It was really upsetting. I felt<br />

a bit responsible in a way,” she<br />

said.<br />

“But a few days after [the<br />

surgery] he started to get back<br />

to himself. I realised that even<br />

though he couldn’t walk, it<br />

didn’t seem to bother him too<br />

much.”<br />

Nixon went to physio about<br />

four times a week and even<br />

wore a pug-sized life jacket as he<br />

walked in the underwater treadmill<br />

to strengthen his legs.<br />

Nixon would continue to have<br />

treatment at the clinic, and Mr<br />

Gooday hoped the pug would be<br />

“bounding around in no time”.<br />

A MAN who suffered severe<br />

burns after an accidental garage<br />

fire in Woolston has died.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 50-year-old man was flown<br />

to Middlemore Hospital on April<br />

12 but succumbed to his injuries<br />

on April 26.<br />

Police said he had been living in<br />

the garage that caught fire.<br />

A neighbour, who did not want<br />

to be named, said there were<br />

about “10 explosions” before the<br />

smoke started billowing into the<br />

air.<br />

Fire crews extinguished the<br />

blaze and then police and fire<br />

investigators started to determine<br />

a cause.<br />

Detective Senior Sergeant Mark<br />

Worner said the cause of the fire<br />

was accidental.<br />

He said the man had been living<br />

in the garage, surrounded by<br />

his father’s possessions, who had<br />

recently died.<br />

After the fire the victim left the<br />

property and went to a nearby<br />

address on Hobson St where an<br />

ambulance was called and he<br />

was taken to hospital in a critical<br />

condition.

Good reason to follow tradition<br />

• By Bridget Rutherford<br />

EMMA YATES’ grandmother<br />

used to paint her initials on the<br />

bottom of her crockery collection<br />

in nail varnish so she could keep<br />

track of it.<br />

Lerline Morris lost her battle<br />

to breast cancer aged just 57, and<br />

now Ms Yates has her collection,<br />

and adds new items to it.<br />

As a tribute, she will use it in<br />

her Pink Ribbon afternoon tea<br />

on <strong>May</strong> 21 to raise money and<br />

awareness for the Breast Cancer<br />

Foundation New Zealand.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> one thing that’s special<br />

to me is that the china has her<br />

initials on the bottom that she’s<br />

done in nail varnish.”<br />

Mrs Morris painted her initials<br />

so when she took it to her<br />

women’s division functions, she<br />

would know they were hers, Ms<br />

Yates said.<br />

Ms Yates, now 39, had two<br />

fibroadenoma lumps removed<br />

when she was 29 and 31, and goes<br />

for a check up every year now.<br />

She said it was so important for<br />

women of any age to be aware of<br />

the breast cancer symptoms and<br />

to get checked.<br />

“I think a lot of people think it<br />

will never happen to them.”<br />

She said she was “very lucky”.<br />

Last year she hosted a breakfast<br />

with a friend – but this year<br />

would be her first individual<br />

event.<br />

She chose to do an afternoon<br />

tea because it was more in line<br />

with her business <strong>The</strong> Traveling<br />

Tea Party.<br />

“It’s a good idea to get a bunch<br />

of girlfriends or colleagues<br />

together to have a fun event that<br />

also supports a good cause.”<br />

Pink Ribbon events will run<br />

throughout <strong>May</strong>.<br />

More than 3000 Kiwis are<br />

diagnosed with breast cancer<br />

a year, with 600 dying of the<br />

disease.<br />

Proceeds from the events<br />

will go towards breast cancer<br />

research, and help provide<br />

awareness education and support<br />

for patients.<br />

Last year’s Pink Ribbon events<br />

raised $1.7 million.<br />

TRIBUTE: Emma Yates will<br />

Treatment<br />

could speed<br />

breast cancer<br />

recovery<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

UP TO 251 Christchurch women<br />

could benefit from a new breast<br />

cancer treatment being considered,<br />

a study has found.<br />

New technology allows radiotherapy<br />

to be done during breast<br />

cancer surgery, rather than being<br />

drawn out over several weeks.<br />

It means patients can be treated<br />

and recover faster.<br />

It is already being used in a private<br />

clinic in Auckland, and several<br />

groups have been campaigning<br />

to have it publicly funded.<br />

<strong>The</strong> study was commissioned by<br />

the Ministry of Health to look at<br />

the cost of funding the treatment,<br />

and estimate the demand for it.<br />

It estimated about 461 women<br />

across New Zealand would use<br />

the treatment, but it could vary<br />

between 80 and 1505.<br />

That included between 14 and<br />

251 women in Christchurch.<br />

It estimated the cost of investing<br />

in the treatment would be between<br />

$3.72 million and $4.72 million,<br />

but it could also save significant<br />

amounts over 10 years by reducing<br />

the amount of time it took to treat<br />

women.<br />

Pensioners still fighting over fence<br />

.kiwi<br />

Thursday <strong>May</strong> 4 <strong>2017</strong><br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

THE STOUSH over a fence in<br />

a Burwood retirement village<br />

looks set to continue.<br />

Retirees at the Sanctuary<br />

Villas, Burwood had been<br />

facing off for six years over a<br />

humble trellis and wooden<br />

fence.<br />

Patsy Clegg had the fence<br />

built outside her property,<br />

upsetting neighbours Kathleen<br />

and Glyn Hardy.<br />

<strong>The</strong> fence borders a private<br />

access road used by residents<br />

and the Hardys claimed it was<br />

illegal and dangerous.<br />

Mrs Clegg has now agreed<br />

to shift the fence back from<br />

the road kerbing, but wants<br />

the Hardys to sign off on the<br />

plan before starting any<br />

work.<br />

“I don’t want the Hardys<br />

having another go at me. I’ve<br />

got no faith that they’re not<br />

going to.”<br />

But Kathleen Hardy told<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> until the fence went<br />

back to where it was when they<br />

moved into Sanctuary Villas<br />

in 2011, they won’t be signing<br />

anything.<br />

“We can’t properly judge<br />

what it will be like (from a<br />

drawing).”<br />

STILL FIGHTING: Sanctuary<br />

Villas retirees Kathleen and<br />

Glyn Hardy are refusing to<br />

sign off on their neighbour’s<br />

plan to shift a fence they say<br />

is dangerous.<br />

She had legal advice that if<br />

the Hardy’s signed approval<br />

for the fence alteration and it<br />

didn’t end up going where they<br />

thought it would, “we’ve got no<br />

comeback.”<br />

Youth ask for<br />

police racial<br />

bias committee<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

A GROUP of Christchurch<br />

Pasifika youth are<br />

campaigning for a police<br />

racial bias committee to<br />

be set up to investigate<br />

allegations of police<br />

discrimination.<br />

About 250 young people<br />

gathered in Christchurch<br />

last week for the Pacific<br />

Youth Leadership and<br />

Transformation Council,<br />

to discuss issues in the<br />

community and potential<br />

solutions.<br />

PYLAT chairman Josiah<br />

Tualamali’i said many<br />

shared stories of situations<br />

where they believed they<br />

were unfairly treated or<br />

discriminated against by<br />

police because of their<br />

race.<br />

Most did not report it,<br />

because they did not feel<br />

they would be taken seriously,<br />

he said.<br />

“Why is it a lot of Maori<br />

and Pasifika talk about the<br />

police like they have to be<br />

fearful of something, when<br />

others of different ethnicities<br />

don’t seem to have that<br />

anxiety?” he said.<br />

“I have been pulled<br />

over a few times, not for<br />

anything I’ve done wrong,<br />

but when I’m driving a car<br />

which has five or six Pacific<br />

young people in it. We<br />

immediately get a bit nervous,<br />

we sit up straighter,<br />

we are more articulate<br />

with what we’re saying,<br />

because we’re trying not<br />

to give them any reason to<br />

detain us.”<br />

Pasifika law student<br />

Anatea Prince, who helped<br />

draw up the recommendations,<br />

said a lot of people<br />

told stories at the forum<br />

about their personal interactions<br />

with police.<br />

She said many did not<br />

know about the Independent<br />

Police Conduct<br />

Authority or how to make<br />

a complaint.<br />

Canterbury Maori,<br />

Pacific and Ethnic Affairs<br />

district manager Inspector<br />

Hirone Waretini said he<br />

could not comment on<br />

specific cases when a complaint<br />

had not been made.<br />

But he said he was open<br />

to speaking with the<br />

young people directly to<br />

discuss the issues.<br />

Valuing diversity was<br />

one of the core values of<br />

NZ Police, he said.<br />

“Our communities<br />

are diverse, with an<br />

ever-changing population.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se changes create a<br />

responsibility on police<br />

to encourage and grow<br />

the diversity and cultural<br />

competency of our staff, to<br />

ensure we are responsive<br />

to the communities we<br />

serve,” he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> police already had<br />

liaison officers working<br />

with different ethnic communities,<br />

an emphasis on<br />

diversity in recruitment<br />

campaigns, and training<br />

for recruits in how to communicate<br />

and interact with<br />

diverse communities, he<br />

Policing changes PYLAT youth asked for:<br />

•Consistent diversity hiring practices to increase<br />

Pasifika representation within police<br />

•Compulsory cultural awareness and<br />

engagement training for all police officers and<br />

staff<br />

•A racial bias committee established, co-led by<br />

the Police, Pasifika, and Māori Leaders, to keep<br />

police accountable and transparent, and review<br />

arrests and prosecutions

Aranui’s changing<br />

attitude to police<br />

Six months ago, the Aranui Neighbourhood Policing<br />

Team was set up to try to combat crime and distrust of<br />

police in the community. Reporter Gabrielle Stuart visited<br />

Aranui to ask residents how the police were doing<br />

SITTING ON her front doorstep,<br />

Denise sees a lot of what goes on in<br />

Aranui.<br />

Wrapped in her dressing gown<br />

for warmth, coffee beside her, her<br />

view on Friday was peaceful – a<br />

few children playing in Wainoni<br />

Park, workmen busy on the sports<br />

field, and neighbours wandering<br />

past heading to the library or community<br />

centre.<br />

But it wasn’t always like that.<br />

She also sees vandalism, fights,<br />

and plenty of blue and red flashing<br />

lights. She regularly hears young<br />

people screaming and fighting late<br />

at night in the park.<br />

LOOKING UP: Levi Sutton, 22, shoots baskets at Wainoni Park - by day the<br />

heart of the community, but by night, it is plagued with vandalism and fights.<br />

Building relationships with the people<br />

•From page 13<br />

Two weeks ago, a policeman<br />

knocked on her door.<br />

After 35 years living in the<br />

community, she had learnt that<br />

usually meant nothing good – a<br />

search for someone, a crime<br />

committed, or a tragedy in the<br />

neighbourhood.<br />

But this was different. She<br />

said the policeman was friendly,<br />

introduced himself and asked<br />

about her thoughts on the neighbourhood<br />

and what the police<br />

could do better in it.<br />

She said the relationship with<br />

police had been rocky for a long<br />

time in Aranui, but she hoped<br />

that would change.<br />

“It’s good to have them around,<br />

for our youth. And they’re doing<br />

really well, you’ve got to hand it<br />

to them,” she said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> spoke to residents<br />

around the park, and all but<br />

one had spoken directly with<br />

someone from the policing team.<br />

Almost all the comments were<br />

positive.<br />

Some had played a community<br />

v police rugby game – where<br />

the police were apparently thoroughly<br />

thrashed, but earnt a lot<br />

of respect anyway.<br />

<strong>The</strong> policing team manned<br />

the barbecue at local events, and<br />

walked local children to school in<br />

the mornings.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y also patrol differently –<br />

they now ride around the community<br />

on cycles, instead of in<br />

cars, to appear less threatening.<br />

Policing team leader Sergeant<br />

Toni Carroll said they were trying<br />

to do things differently.<br />

“We’re trying to get rid of that<br />

perception that if they see police<br />

it’s a bad thing,” she said.<br />

By the numbers, the results are<br />

not looking good.<br />

<strong>The</strong> crime rate in Aranui has<br />

risen over the months the team<br />

has been working.<br />

In the first three months of<br />

this year, there were 73 crimes in<br />

Aranui reported to the police, up<br />

from 58 at the same time the year<br />

before.<br />

But Sergeant Carroll said this<br />

was expected.<br />

Because they were building<br />

more trust in police, more people<br />

would feel confident in reporting<br />

crimes, she said.<br />

“When we were surveying<br />

around Wainoni Park, people<br />

were telling us teens were often<br />

misusing the park, yelling and<br />

screaming at all hours and breaking<br />

glass. We said: ‘Did you ring<br />

the police?’ None of them had.<br />

But the next weekend we got four<br />

calls about disorder at the park,”<br />

she said.<br />

She said the teenagers had<br />

scattered by the time a police car<br />

arrived.<br />

But the policing team was still<br />

able to make sure the glass was<br />

cleaned up, and was working<br />

with the city council to improve<br />

lighting and trim bushes where it<br />

was happening, she said.<br />

Of the crimes recorded this<br />

year, 43 were burglaries, and 10<br />

thefts. Seven were assaults, and<br />

Gym owner Jamie Roberts,<br />

pictured with his boxing<br />

“family”, said the new policing<br />

team had treated them with<br />

respect. Left – Constables<br />

Brad Hagerty, Jules Atkinson<br />

and Pete Evans patrol the<br />

streets of Aranui on cycles,<br />

in an effort to be more<br />

approachable.<br />

13 were illegal use of a motor<br />

vehicle.<br />

Rather than decide themselves<br />

what issues to focus on, the policing<br />

team has been surveying residents,<br />

asking what was important<br />

to them.<br />

Sergeant Carroll said they had<br />

visited about 1400 homes so far,<br />

about 90 per cent of the houses in<br />

the area.<br />

Common issues had emerged.<br />

Many residents were worried<br />

about the young people hanging<br />

out in groups at the shops or the<br />

park and getting into trouble,<br />

and hoped the police could get<br />

alongside them, she said.<br />

While they are trying to build<br />

a positive relationship with the<br />

community, she said it would not<br />

stop them coming down hard on<br />

crime.<br />

But helping someone who had<br />

committed a crime turn their life<br />

around could be easier when they<br />

already had a good relationship<br />

with police, she said.<br />

“We don’t want to ruin their<br />

lives by arresting them. We want<br />

to stop them offending, so they<br />

have better opportunities as they<br />

grow older,” she said.<br />

A-Town Boxing Gym owner<br />

Jamie Roberts described himself<br />

as “a little bit rough around the<br />

edges”, with most interactions<br />

with police in his past on the<br />

wrong side of the law.<br />

But he said the police had<br />

treated him with respect, even<br />

working alongside him on a new<br />

project in schools, teaching children<br />

control, responsibility and<br />

respect through boxing skills.<br />

He said people in Aranui were<br />

suspicious of newcomers, and it<br />

had taken him more than a year<br />

to be accepted when he moved to<br />

the community about 20 years<br />

ago.<br />

But the police had already won<br />

over many people, he said.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y’re not coming out and<br />

asking for our names and date of<br />

birth. Instead they’re asking our<br />

names and how they can help,”<br />

he said.<br />

Mr Roberts bumped into one<br />

of the officers on the team picking<br />

up rubbish in the park one<br />

morning.<br />

He was also impressed by the<br />

reaction he saw police officers<br />

receive at Haeata school recently.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> kids were coming up<br />

and saying morning officer, and<br />

shaking their hands. It was pretty<br />

cool,” he said.<br />

Sergeant Carroll said the local<br />

children had been quiet and<br />

reserved around the team at the<br />

beginning, but over time they<br />

were warming.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re are still some hard core<br />

ones who won’t say hi, but you<br />

can tell that even they want to,<br />

now. We’ll keep going until they<br />

say hi,” she said.

Can Wagner rise to<br />

the challenge?<br />

.kiwi<br />

Thursday <strong>May</strong> 4 <strong>2017</strong><br />

New rebuild boss Nicky<br />

Wagner has been dubbed<br />

the “personable politician”.<br />

But has she got the goods<br />

to finish the job that Gerry<br />

Brownlee started? Bridget<br />

Rutherford reports<br />

IT WOULD be hard to find two more<br />

different political personalities.<br />

Within minutes of speaking to<br />

National Christchurch Central MP<br />

Nicky Wagner (right), you know she’s a<br />

glass-half-full kind of person.<br />

<strong>The</strong> former schoolteacher turned<br />

businesswoman and Environment<br />

Canterbury councillor, is popular<br />

and personable with her “grass roots”<br />

attitude to politics.<br />

She clawed her way to win the<br />

Christchurch Central seat in 2011,<br />

through hard yakka, and pounding the<br />

pavements.<br />

Christchurch’s future clearly excites her.<br />

Former rebuild boss and now Foreign<br />

Affairs Minister Gerry Brownlee, on<br />

the other hand, was a different type of<br />

politician.<br />

He’s not afraid to be critical – and then<br />

sometimes having to apologise.<br />

Infamously, he called former <strong>May</strong>or Bob<br />

Parker a “clown.” He later phoned Parker<br />

to mend fences.<br />

He said in 2012 some landowners<br />

after the earthquake<br />

were “carping and moaning”<br />

about their situation.<br />

During his six-year tenure<br />

Gerry<br />

Brownlee<br />

overseeing the city’s rebuild,<br />

he’s been accused of not<br />

communicating and failing<br />

to listen. But many say he had a role too<br />

big for one person.<br />

It’s been more than a week since Prime<br />

Minister Bill English announced Mrs<br />

Wagner would take over Mr Brownlee’s<br />

role as Minister Supporting Greater<br />

Christchurch Regeneration.<br />

Already she’s copped flak. Critics say<br />

at number 22 on National’s list, she will<br />

be powerless because she is not a Cabinet<br />

Minister, and therefore the Government<br />

was walking away from Christchurch.<br />

Former mayor Garry Moore said Mrs<br />

Wagner had been given a “poisoned chalice”<br />

because everything was in place.<br />

“Being outside Cabinet will mean Wagner<br />

will have to sit, Lazarus-like, in the hall<br />

outside the Cabinet meeting room hoping<br />

that she will be able to influence the way<br />

things are being managed in Christchurch.<br />

“Cabinet decisions will be passed out the<br />

door to her as a recipient, just like most of<br />

us in Christchurch have experienced for<br />

years.”<br />

By comparison Labour MP Megan<br />

Woods, who has the Christchurch issues<br />

portfolio, is number five on her party’s list.<br />

But Mrs Wagner said whenever a decision<br />

about Christchurch was made in<br />

Cabinet, she would be there.<br />

It also meant she would have an extra<br />

day each week to be in Christchurch, she<br />

said.<br />

But Canterbury University political science<br />

associate professor Bronwyn Hayward<br />

said Mrs Wagner would have more<br />

resources and support if she was a Cabinet<br />

Minister.<br />

“I think it is a concern that the Government<br />

does not see the need to sustain the<br />

focus on Christchurch or why even they<br />

‘Being outside Cabinet will mean Nicky Wagner will have to<br />

sit, Lazarus-like, in the hall outside the Cabinet meeting room<br />

hoping that she will be able to influence the way things are<br />

being managed in Christchurch.’ – Garry Moore, former mayor<br />

need MPs like Wagner in their inner circle.”<br />

She said Mr Brownlee was not the “right<br />

personality” for the city and Mrs Wagner<br />

had the ability to restore relationships –<br />

but it might be too late.<br />

“He [Brownlee]. . . tended to work with<br />

a fairly narrow community of loyal supporters<br />

and similar interests.”<br />

She said Mr Brownlee had a large workload,<br />

and perhaps was asked to perform<br />

the role for too long.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

He was a “polarising figure” who exacerbated<br />

anger and frustration, she said.<br />

In comparison, Mrs Wagner was popular<br />

and personable, she said.<br />

Mrs Wagner said she wants to keep the<br />

ball rolling, and build on the “tough” decisions<br />

Mr Brownlee had made and “copped<br />

flack” for, including the residential red<br />

zone’s future.<br />

Labour’s earthquake recovery spokeswoman<br />

Megan Woods said she had “grave<br />

concerns” that Canterbury was slipping<br />

down the Government’s priority agenda.<br />

“Canterbury doesn’t have a place at the<br />

table when decisions are being made.”<br />

Mrs Wagner said the city was in a great<br />

position compared to 15 years ago where<br />

you could “shoot a gun down Cashel Mall<br />

at 11am” some days.<br />

“Who would have believed down the track<br />

we’re in such a strong position?”<br />

She said following the February 22,<br />

2011, earthquake, their original expectations<br />

on how quickly the rebuild could<br />

happen were not realistic.<br />

“That was the biggest challenge.<br />

“We’ve got the momentum going in the<br />

right direction.”

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

Viewpoint<br />

Canterbury spirit shines<br />

THE NATION watched in shock<br />

at the events that unfolded in<br />

Canterbury in 2010 and 2011,<br />

changing the region forever.<br />

Hundreds of central city<br />

buildings needed to be demolished,<br />

regional landmarks were<br />

destroyed, thousands of homes<br />

suffered earthquake damage, the<br />

level of land damage was unprecedented<br />

and the future seemed<br />

uncertain.<br />

For more than six years I’ve<br />

held the role of overseeing the<br />

region’s earthquake recovery.<br />

Rebuilding Christchurch been<br />

an enormous undertaking for all<br />

those involved but we’ve managed<br />

to stave off the gloomy predictions<br />

about population flight,<br />

high unemployment and the<br />

collapse of the regional economy.<br />

I’ve been genuinely humbled at<br />

the strength and determination<br />

of Canterbury – homeowners,<br />

business owners, investors, developers,<br />

families and communities<br />

alike.<br />

While I’ve never been a fan<br />

of the word ‘resilient’, it does<br />

describe the spirit of our beautiful<br />

region, which I’m proud to<br />

call home.<br />

Since late 2010, I’ve worked<br />

with countless people from<br />

around the country and overseas<br />

who have all shared the same<br />

vision; that Canterbury will build<br />

back better than it was before.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re’s been the odd disagreement<br />

along the way – many of<br />

them publicly documented – but<br />

that’s par for the course.<br />

Gerry Brownlee<br />

I want to thank every single<br />

person who has backed Canterbury’s<br />

recovery. Every single person<br />

who chose to stay and work<br />

in the region, every single person<br />

who chose to open a new business<br />

or build a new building and<br />

every single person who chose to<br />

study here – you are why our city<br />

is more vibrant and prosperous<br />

than ever before.<br />

Canterbury is in a strong<br />

position and I have no doubt<br />

my colleague Nicky Wagner will<br />

continue the good work that is<br />

already happening in and around<br />

the city.<br />

While my ministerial attention<br />

will now have a more global<br />

focus in the Foreign Affairs portfolio,<br />

I remain committed to the<br />

Ilam electorate as their local MP<br />

and to Christchurch as my home.<br />

In his last act as Minister<br />

for supporting Greater<br />

Christchurch Regeneration<br />

Gerry Brownlee said the<br />

Crown will fund a prefeasibility<br />

You said:<br />

Stephanie Hagerty – If we<br />

had a stadium with a roof like<br />

Dunedin, it can be used for so<br />

much more such as concerts.<br />

That damn thing we have now is<br />

no good for international games.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Lions tour bought lots of<br />

money here last time. This time,<br />

none. Plus none from the World<br />

Cup either.<br />

Cherry Cornelius – We<br />

don’t need this waste of ratepayer<br />

money. Just now, there are<br />

much more important things<br />

needed like decent parking at<br />

the hospital.<br />

Alan Wenmouth – <strong>The</strong><br />

only “burden to ratepayers” will<br />

be if we delay building our new<br />

stadium any longer. Green light<br />

to go.<br />

Chris Farrier – We don’t<br />

need this – it’s a total waste<br />

of money. We already have a<br />

replacement, why do we need<br />

another. Get real and grow up.<br />

Kim Henry – Christchurch<br />

needs a covered stadium. If you<br />

want to bring money into the city<br />

then get it built already.<br />

Mike Allfrey – Vbase was $45<br />

million in the red at the time of<br />

February 22, 2011, earthquake.<br />

Tell me again how this white elephant<br />

will make the city council<br />

money? Stadiums don’t make<br />

money nor do convention centres.<br />

We said:<br />

Two segments of the<br />

Berlin Wall, gifted to New<br />

Zealand, arrived in Christchurch<br />

and have been put in<br />

storage until a decision on<br />

where they should go has<br />

been made.<br />

You said:<br />

Graeme Brown – Wow. <strong>The</strong>re<br />

are people saying get rid of it.<br />

Learn your history. By having this<br />

piece of the wall here, people/children<br />

may ask what it was all about.<br />

If we don’t teach history we are<br />

doomed to repeat it.<br />

Sean Mortell – Personally,<br />

depending on their integrity, I’d<br />

like to see them adopted/enveloped<br />

into a new structure. <strong>May</strong>be<br />

bridge abutments for the new<br />

east/west footbridge going over<br />

the Avon River near the town hall.<br />

Down by the river it would be<br />

hard to tag.<br />

Lorraine Isaacs – I would<br />

not want to see something that<br />

caused so much suffering. <strong>The</strong><br />

Kate Valley landfill would be a<br />

good place to put it.<br />

Aroha Jackson – Put it with<br />

the rest of the rubble being used<br />

to extend around our port.<br />

Des Wesley – Canterbury<br />

Museum, where they will be<br />

looked after and safe from vandalism<br />

and graffiti.<br />

Melanie Whitworth – It<br />

should be displayed somewhere<br />

very safe. Away from taggers.<br />

Andrea Haylings – Inside<br />

a building so uneducated troglodytes<br />

who think horrible parts<br />

of history should be ignored and<br />

people can’t deface them.<br />

Job not finished in city<br />

THIS WEEK, Canterbury has<br />

a new Minister responsible for<br />

overseeing the regeneration and<br />

recovery of our city. I wish Nicky<br />

Wagner well in this important<br />

role.<br />

Although it is fair to say Gerry<br />

Brownlee and I have not always<br />

seen eye to eye, I would like<br />

to acknowledge his service to<br />

Christchurch at one of the hardest<br />

points in our history, and wish<br />

him well for the new challenges as<br />

Minister of Foreign Affairs.<br />

Coming up to seven years on<br />

there is still so much to be done<br />

in our city. <strong>The</strong> anchor projects<br />

continue to be slow and messy.<br />

Timelines around completion of<br />

the convention centre and the<br />

fully completed East Frame are<br />

about as clear as mud. Instead of<br />

providing certainty to stimulate<br />

activity in the CBD, these projects<br />

are weighing down the city.<br />

My concern is that in allocating<br />

the portfolio to a Minister outside<br />

Cabinet is a sure sign that Canterbury<br />

is slipping down the list<br />

of priorities for National. We’ve<br />

seen this attitude developing for<br />

some time now but last week’s<br />

announcement is confirmation of<br />

a downgrading.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Government argues that<br />

the absence of a Minister at<br />

the decision-making Cabinet<br />

table who will fight Canterbury’s<br />

corner is no big deal. I disagree.<br />

I want to know that every time<br />

health funding, especially mental<br />

health funding, is discussed that<br />

someone is thumping the table<br />

and telling Ministers about how<br />

bad it is down here.<br />

I want someone there who will<br />

share the examples of our new<br />

entrants starting school with<br />

developmental delays and forcefully<br />

arguing for much needed<br />

additional mental health support<br />

down here.<br />

<strong>The</strong> job in Canterbury is<br />

nowhere near finished. <strong>The</strong>re’s<br />

buildings, roads and infrastructure<br />

to complete but also the<br />

critical job of ensuring that our<br />

people are also recovering and<br />

regenerating.<br />

<strong>The</strong> test of leadership for the<br />

new Minister is to be a staunch<br />

advocate for us on these issues<br />

and reminding her colleagues<br />

this region is still a priority.<br />

Labour is committed seeing the<br />

job through with Canterbury. We<br />

know the job is far from done and<br />

our region will be a priority for a<br />

Labour government.<br />

More to Rarotonga than the beaches<br />

.kiwi<br />

Thursday <strong>May</strong> 4 <strong>2017</strong><br />

• By Mike Yardley<br />

PLANNING an escape to<br />

Rarotonga?<br />

Tear yourself away from the<br />

beach to dig a little deeper at the<br />

roots of the island. Venture along<br />

the back road and enter a timeless<br />

world of free-range harmony in<br />

abundance.<br />

On my various forays along the<br />

back road, I feasted on freshlyplucked<br />

pawpaw, mango, guava,<br />

bananas and star-fruit, bursting<br />

from the roadside trees.<br />

Scenically insatiable, I marvelled<br />

at the colourfully-painted<br />

hinterland homes and the dense<br />

plantations, bracketed by Rarotonga’s<br />

serrated peaks which<br />

exude a Jurassic Park aura.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are many ways to get<br />

a flavour for Rarotonga’s vast<br />

green heart, including taking a<br />

ride with the recently launched<br />

Tik-e Tours. <strong>The</strong>se tropical<br />

three-wheeler luxury tuk-tuk<br />

limousines are fully electric, so<br />

unlike the racket they make on<br />

the streets of Bangkok, these<br />

beauties will glide you around<br />

Rarotonga’s ravishing interior in<br />

virtual silence.<br />

My driver/guide was a worldly<br />

elder called Mata, a natural and<br />

charismatic raconteur. Throughout<br />

my tour, every passer-by<br />

warmly waved out to Mata, or<br />

stopped to chat. One chap we<br />

talked to was busy cultivating<br />

noni fruit by hand.<br />

Lauded by locals for centuries<br />

for its numerous health benefits,<br />

noni juice has taken the world by<br />

TROPICAL: Ikurangi’s foliage is typical of the Rarotongan hinterland. Right – Shower in the open air at the Ikurangi Eco-Retreat.<br />

storm and is the Cook Islands’<br />

No 1 agricultural export product.<br />

My two-hour tour traversed a<br />

slew of insights, including stops<br />

at ancient marae sites, a rendezvous<br />

with Government House,<br />

the magnificently carved new<br />

war memorial in honour of the<br />

500 local soldiers who fought in<br />

World War 1, Tinomana Palace<br />

and the sacred Great Migration<br />

site of Avana Passage.<br />

Operating for just over a year,<br />

the people behind Tik-e Tours<br />

are Cook Islander Tania Farman<br />

and her husband, Karl, who<br />

have swapped corporate life in<br />

Auckland for the Rarotongan<br />

lifestyle, while injecting an<br />

innovative and eco-friendly<br />

tourism product into the mix.<br />

www.tik-etours.com<br />

For more heartland hi-jinks<br />

I jumped behind the wheel of a<br />

Rarotonga Buggy Tour. <strong>The</strong>se<br />

grunty off-road vehicles are a<br />

REFRESHING: Stop for an ice-cream on a buggy tour of Rarotonga’s green heart.<br />

cross between a kart and a beach<br />

buggy, highly manoeuvrable and<br />

hardy.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y’re even kitted out with roll<br />

cages if it all goes badly wrong.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se wildly popular buggy<br />

tours have been making quite a<br />

splash for two years. Our conga<br />

line of yellow buggies looked<br />

like a slithering giant snake. <strong>The</strong><br />

biggest mud pits awaited us at the<br />

site of ill-fated and abandoned<br />

Sheraton Hotel development,<br />

where the grounds have been<br />

reworked as an off-road buggy<br />

track, which is where I got utterly<br />

splattered in mud, as we ripped<br />

up and down the mounds of the<br />

track.<br />

Our touring route also romped<br />

into the hinterland and the<br />

Turangi Valley, thickly carpeted<br />

with tropical rainforest. Seriously<br />

good fun if you like to get down<br />

and dirty. www.rarobuggytours.<br />

com<br />

Swathed in jungle-like tropical<br />

foliage, the environmentallyfriendly<br />

embrace of Ikurangi Eco-<br />

Retreat is a winning new roost in<br />

Rarotonga.<br />

Established by Luana and Matt<br />

Scowcroft last year, this thoughtfully<br />

created offering treads a very<br />

light footprint. You’ll notice the<br />

sustainability elements wherever<br />

you turn.<br />

<strong>The</strong> toilets are self-composting,<br />

the beautiful toiletries by Ashley<br />

& Co are studiously organic, the<br />

natural and biodegradable cleaning<br />

products, a sustainable waste<br />

management system, all materials<br />

are sustainably sourced and<br />

there’s free use of bicycles to go<br />

exploring.<br />

Being uber-boutique, the experience<br />

is absolutely distinctive,<br />

personalised and ultra-attentive.<br />

Luana says: “We think of it as a<br />

unique combination of the allure<br />

of a safari with the romance of the<br />

RESPECT: Rarotonga’s new war memorial in<br />

honour of soldiers who fought in World War 1.<br />

South Seas, where luxury meets<br />

sustainability.”<br />

I loved sleeping in my luxury<br />

safari tent, stunningly furnished,<br />

and perched on a deck to allow<br />

airflow.<br />

A tropical breakfast was<br />

delivered to my deck each<br />

morning and I adored the<br />

locally-roasted, fair trade plunger<br />

coffee.<br />

I awoke each morning to the<br />

“Tail of the Sky,” Mt Ikurangi,<br />

gilded in the glow of the rising<br />

Rarotongan sun, and I revelled<br />

in the novelty of showering in<br />

the open-air bathroom, flanked<br />

by swaying palms and bountiful<br />

banana trees.<br />

FAST FACTS<br />

•Set amid the bountiful<br />

hinterland beauty, but just<br />

minutes from the beach,<br />

Ikurangi Eco-Resort is a<br />

masterclass in sustainable<br />

hospitality in paradise. Five<br />

per cent of Ikurangi Eco<br />

Retreat profits go to local<br />

conservation initiatives.<br />

www.ikurangi.com<br />

I do love how Rarotonga<br />

is replete with colourful<br />

roadside stalls brimming<br />

with freshly picked produce<br />

and alluring treats, like<br />

organic fruit ice cream.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y directly help villagers<br />

supplement their incomes.<br />

It’s a great way to give back.<br />

Gardening<br />

Beautiful broad beans<br />

• By Henri Ham<br />

I KNOW it’s easy and not<br />

too expensive to buy broad<br />

beans at the supermarket,<br />

but I enjoy eating them<br />

fresh from the garden.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y taste great and it’s<br />

nice knowing exactly what’s<br />

taken place during the<br />

growing process.<br />

Broad beans are one of<br />

my favourite varieties to<br />

grow.<br />

Like most other vegetables,<br />

you can grow broad<br />

beans from seed (actually<br />

it’s the bean itself). But I<br />

recommend growing from<br />

seedlings.<br />

Doing this shortens the<br />

time before harvest (around<br />

six less weeks) but, more<br />

importantly, takes out a<br />

lot of the hard work. Once<br />

the root systems are well<br />

formed (yet still separate<br />

from each other), almost<br />

guaranteed they will grow<br />

well.<br />

Once you’ve got your<br />

seedlings, you need to find<br />

somewhere to grow them.<br />

I like to grow mine in a<br />

raised vegetable garden,<br />

but they also grow well in<br />

FRESH: Broad beans like<br />

full sun or just partial<br />

shade.<br />

pots. Make sure it’s full sun<br />

or partial shade where you<br />

plant.<br />

Broad beans are pollinated<br />

by bees, so it’s helpful<br />

to grow them near a beefriendly<br />

plant like lavender,<br />

rosemary or cornflowers.<br />

It pays to check the pH<br />

level of your soil. Broad<br />

beans like the soil to be<br />

around 5.5 to 6.5pH.<br />

Not sure what the pH<br />

level of your soil is? Most<br />

garden centres sell kits,<br />

alternatively there are also<br />

companies which will test<br />

your soil for a small fee.<br />

If the pH level of your soil<br />

could go higher, try adding<br />

a little bit of lime from<br />

your local garden centre. If<br />

you’re not sure of the pH<br />

level, it wouldn’t hurt to add<br />

a little bit of lime anyway.<br />

<strong>The</strong>n simply dig a little<br />

hole and plant each seedling<br />

around 15cm apart in<br />

rows approximately 30cm<br />

apart.<br />

Once the plants are<br />

around 1m you can stake<br />

them individually but I prefer<br />

to put a stake at either<br />

end of the rows and loop a<br />

big piece of string around<br />

the whole lot to keep them<br />

growing together. Your<br />

plants will lean against each<br />

other and grow across the<br />

ground.<br />

<strong>The</strong> seedlings will take<br />

around eight to 12 weeks<br />

from planting to produce<br />

beans ready for harvesting.<br />

Harvest the beans when<br />

the pods are around 75-<br />

100mm.<br />

Blueberries<br />

If you love to pick and eat fresh,<br />

have you tried growing your own<br />

blueberries? We have all heard of<br />

blueberries, but what a lot of us do<br />

not know is that they are easy to grow.<br />

Blueberries are a wonder food and<br />

are a fantastic addition to the garden<br />

whether you grow them as specimen<br />

plants in containers, or as a low hedge.<br />

Blueberries like soil which is slightly acidic<br />

with plenty of nitrogen. A slow-release<br />

fertiliser, such as Oderings Total Replenish<br />

in spring before the new growth appears<br />

is ideal. You may not realise this, but some<br />

blueberry varieties can be killed if there<br />

is too much calcium present in the soil,<br />

therefore avoid lime fertiliser and gypsum.<br />

Water is vital for the full development of<br />

your berries, which swell rapidly in the<br />

last two weeks of ripening. Lack of<br />

water can mean a poor crop and dark,<br />

undersized berries.<br />

While blueberries are resistant to most<br />

diseases, it is prudent to spray to prevent<br />

mildew and cover them to protect the<br />

ripening berries from birds. <strong>The</strong> plants<br />

are hardy to minus four degrees, although<br />

FALL IN LOVE WITH<br />

Autumn<br />

Plant Now & Save!<br />

frost will damage flowers. <strong>The</strong>y can<br />

also suffer from iron and magnesium<br />

deficiencies. If your plant leaves are<br />

a reddish-yellow colour, especially near<br />

the edges it is most likely a magnesium<br />

deficiency and if the leaves turn yellow<br />

with green veins it is most likely an<br />

iron deficiency.<br />

Knowing how to prune blueberries is<br />

important, because fruit is borne on last<br />

season’s wood and the most vigorous<br />

wood bears the largest fruit. <strong>The</strong> flower<br />

buds that will produce next year’s crop<br />

develop on the outer part of this year’s<br />

growth in late summer as stems mature.<br />

Minimum pruning consists of the removal<br />

of dead or damaged wood, any weak<br />

growth or twiggy old branches. Remove<br />

some of the oldest branches after four to<br />

five years to encourage new growth. While<br />

light pruning is possible year around,<br />

winter is the best time for heavy pruning.<br />

<strong>The</strong>atre/Arts<br />

A cappella group on road to stardom<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

CITY COUPLE Malia and Julian<br />

Hay have never been afraid to<br />

take risks.<br />

It was just over a year ago<br />

they delved into the unknown,<br />

setting up the city’s first ever<br />

vocal academy specialising in<br />

contemporary a cappella singing<br />

– Voices Co.<br />

<strong>The</strong> endeavour has proven to<br />

be successful for the Linwood<br />

pair who have produced more<br />

than 20 songs, had about 50<br />

come through their school and<br />

have three established squads.<br />

So when Television New<br />

Zealand began the hunt to find<br />

the country’s top a cappella<br />

singing group the couple decided<br />

to enter their top performance<br />

squad in the new show <strong>The</strong><br />

Naked Choir.<br />

<strong>The</strong> ensemble made up of Mr<br />

and Mrs Hay, Liam Dacombe,<br />

Jasmine Salam and Anneliese<br />

Veronese was one of eight voice<br />

groups to be selected to compete<br />

on the reality show hosted by<br />

singer Jeff Hunkin.<br />

Already the group has made<br />

an impact singing their own<br />

version of singer-songwriter Sia’s<br />

<strong>The</strong> Greatest, making it past the<br />

first stage of the competition on<br />

Sunday.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> first week we didn’t know<br />

anything about the groups we<br />

were competing with . . . we sort<br />

of had no idea if we were the<br />

only group doing contemporary<br />

against maybe four different<br />

choirs,” Mrs Hay said.<br />

Expecting to be assigned<br />

a specific song for their first<br />

challenge, the groups were<br />

thrown a “curve ball” having<br />

to choose their own song and<br />

arrange it in two weeks.<br />

Mrs Hay said the first challenge<br />

was “agonising” with the<br />

group needing to choose a song<br />

that showcased their best skills<br />

and what contemporary a cappella<br />

is all about.<br />

Having first met at the<br />

Christchurch Schools’ Music<br />

Festival when the couple was 10,<br />

Mrs Hay said the city’s music<br />

scene has been a huge part on<br />

their life.<br />

“Earthquakes aside it is very<br />

special to be representing our<br />

city. But a city that has had a lot<br />

of change and really had to pick<br />

itself up creatively,” she said.<br />

Aiming to take the title for the<br />

country’s best a cappella group is<br />

not all the Hays have on the go,<br />

with plans to take their academy<br />

into high schools later this year.<br />

ON THE TELLY:<br />

Voices Co have<br />

successfully<br />

entered their top<br />

performance<br />

squad in<br />

the national<br />

television show<br />

<strong>The</strong> Naked<br />

Choir. (From<br />

left) - Julian Hay,<br />

Jasmine Salam,<br />

Liam Dacombe,<br />

Anneliese<br />

Veronese and<br />

Malia Hay. ​<br />

<strong>The</strong> academy will offer schools<br />

master classes and will look to<br />

perform at schools to inspire<br />

students to study music.<br />

Plans are also in the making<br />

for the academy to run a<br />

workshop conference over the<br />

summer holidays for singers and<br />

people wanting to start up their<br />

own tutor groups.<br />

Mrs Hay said she wants the<br />

academy to contribute to the<br />

city’s music economy and help<br />

singers get paid work.<br />

“I certainly don’t think musicians<br />

work any less hard than<br />

any other profession its just it<br />

is hard to get started and that is<br />

what we are passionate about,”<br />

she said.<br />

But she said the academy is<br />

also aiming to make contemporary<br />

a cappella accessible to<br />

everyone who wants to give the<br />

style a go.<br />

Sunday, 8.30pm, TV One.<br />

Singer bares his soul in musical comedy<br />

A CITY-BASED singer,<br />

songwriter, entertainer and<br />

massage therapist will bare his<br />

soul at the upcoming Cavell<br />

Leitch International Jazz and<br />

Blues Festival.<br />

Gary <strong>Star</strong>light, also known as<br />

Jeff Clark (right) is set to perform<br />

a three-night season of musical<br />

comedy show as part of the festival<br />

to be held at Orange Studios<br />

Clark describes his alter ego<br />

Gary <strong>Star</strong>light as a cross between<br />

John Rowles, Elvis, Michael<br />

Buble and Pepe Le Pew.<br />

As part of the show “Gary<br />

<strong>Star</strong>light” will recount the worst<br />

year of his life and sing the songs<br />

he wrote following each event.<br />

<strong>The</strong> one-hour show will be<br />

filled with original songs produced<br />

“out of thin air” inspired<br />

only by Clark’s interactions with<br />

the audience.<br />

<strong>The</strong> character “Gary <strong>Star</strong>light “<br />

first emerged as a wedding singer<br />

in <strong>The</strong> Court Jesters’ ensemble<br />

improvisation show <strong>The</strong> Early<br />

Early Late Show in 2012.<br />

Mazda NZ launches<br />

new-generation CX-5<br />

• By Ross Kiddie<br />

THE latest-generation<br />

CX-5 sport utility vehicle<br />

has been launched by<br />

Mazda New Zealand.<br />

<strong>The</strong> CX-5 arrives here in<br />

three specification levels<br />

and is priced from $39,995<br />

to $57,495. <strong>The</strong>re are also<br />

three engine options including<br />

one diesel.<br />

Mazda New Zealand’s<br />

managing director David<br />

Hodge said the new CX-5<br />

will further enhance the<br />

company’s position as<br />

market leader in the SUV<br />

segment in New Zealand.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> new CX-5 delivers<br />

on so many fronts. From its<br />

stunning looks through to<br />

ride and performance, it’s<br />

the type of vehicle that once<br />

you get behind the wheel<br />

you just want to keep on<br />

driving.”<br />

Mazda’s continual focus<br />

on enhancing Jinba Ittai<br />

– the connection between<br />

car and driver – has seen a<br />

number of enhancements<br />

that will further improve<br />

the performance and<br />

handling of the new CX-5<br />

while at the same time delivering<br />

class-leading safety.<br />

<strong>The</strong> SkyActiv engine lineup<br />

of 2-litre and 2.5-litre<br />

petrol and 2.2-litre diesel all<br />

deliver responsive performance.<br />

All CX-5 models come<br />

equipped with SkyActiv-<br />

Drive transmission. For<br />

petrol models this means<br />

the transmission now incorporates<br />

a new shift logic<br />

that predicts the driver’s<br />

intentions based on vehicle<br />

speed, throttle position,<br />

engine speed and other<br />

factors to achieve smoother<br />

vehicle behaviour.<br />

In the diesel, the transmission<br />

includes a low<br />

rigidity lock-up damper<br />

to enhance quietness and<br />

to deliver improved fuel<br />

economy.<br />

<strong>The</strong> CX-5 features<br />

G-Vectoring Control as<br />

standard across all models.<br />

<strong>The</strong> GVC system, unique<br />

to Mazda, provides unified<br />

MAZDA CX-5: Choice of three engines, two petrol<br />

and one diesel.<br />

control over chassis and<br />

steering systems that results<br />

in improved handling and<br />

ride quality.<br />

An indication of the<br />

commitment Mazda<br />

engineers have to<br />

delivering superior ride and<br />

handling can be seen in the<br />

company’s i-Activ AWD<br />

system that is standard on<br />

2.5-litre and diesel models.<br />

Featuring 27 sensors, it<br />

monitors environmental<br />

and vehicle conditions at<br />

a computation rate of 200<br />

times per second to predict<br />

traction requirements<br />

before wheel slip occurs.<br />

<strong>The</strong> suspension system<br />

on the new CX-5 has been<br />

re-tuned to improve ride<br />

comfort while the body’s<br />

torsional rigidity has<br />

increased by approximately<br />

15.5 per cent to boost driving<br />

performance.<br />

Mr Hodge said while<br />

delivering an outstanding<br />

driving and ride experience<br />

is important, you also need<br />

TECHNOLOGY: <strong>The</strong> CX-5’s exterior has been<br />

designed to keep noise levels low.<br />

to give the driver and passengers<br />

the peace of mind<br />

that they are riding in a<br />

vehicle where their safety is<br />

paramount.<br />

“Mazda prides itself on<br />

the investment and time<br />

it makes to ensure all its<br />

vehicles feature the very<br />

latest in safety technology.<br />

<strong>The</strong> new CX-5 is a great<br />

example of this with its<br />

vast array of i-Activsense<br />

technologies and improved<br />

passive safety features,’’ Mr<br />

Hodge said.<br />

Technologies include<br />

advanced smart city brake<br />

support – forward which<br />

is standard across the<br />

range, blind spot monitoring<br />

and traffic sign recognition<br />

on GSX and Limited<br />

grades, Limited models<br />

also feature lane departure<br />

warning and driver attention<br />

alert.<br />

All models feature secondary<br />

collision reduction,<br />

which automatically applies<br />

the brakes after a primary<br />

collision thereby minimising<br />

the risk of a secondary<br />

collision.<br />

Every new CX-5<br />

comes with mazdacare.<br />

It comprises a Mazda<br />

genuine factory warranty<br />

and Mazda on call<br />

roadside assistance for<br />

a five-year, unlimited<br />

kilometre period and<br />

genuine Mazda servicing<br />

for three years/100,000km<br />

(whichever occurs first) at<br />

no extra cost.

MATT Summerfield will go<br />

into next month’s Canterbury<br />

Rally in the hunt for the New<br />

Zealand Rally Championship<br />

after a spirited drive in<br />

Whangarei.<br />

Summerfield and sister<br />

Nicole (co-driver) now find<br />

themselves second in the<br />

championship after they<br />

stormed to victory in the NZRC<br />

at the International Rally of<br />

Whangarei.<br />

<strong>The</strong> result comes after he<br />

suffered gearbox failure just<br />

three kilometres into the<br />

opening stage at the opening<br />

round of the championship in<br />

Otago last month.<br />

“I’m ecstatic. We need to build<br />

on it from here but it’s a good<br />

feeling going into Canterbury, it<br />

feels like we’re back in the fight,”<br />

said Summerfield.<br />

Saturday saw Summerfield<br />

put in a calculated drive. He<br />

finished within the top four<br />

on each stage, recording just a<br />

single stage victory on the power<br />

stage to capture an extra five<br />

championship points.<br />

<strong>The</strong> drive meant he held an<br />

overnight lead of 29.3sec over<br />

Dylan Turner in his Audi S1<br />

AP4.<br />

Not everything went to plan<br />

for the Summerfield team,<br />

with an exhaust manifold<br />

requiring replacement in Sunday<br />

morning’s 15min service.<br />

<strong>The</strong> job took the team 20min<br />

resulting in a 50sec penalty,<br />

which saw Turner take the l<br />

ead.<br />

However, blistering pace from<br />

Summerfield saw him win three<br />

of the day’s six stages, eventually<br />

cruising to victory 1min 6.4sec<br />

ahead of Turner.<br />

“It sucked to drop 50sec in<br />

penalties but we would have lost<br />

minutes if we didn’t do it,” said<br />

Summerfield.<br />

Summerfield is more than<br />

overdue for a positive result at<br />

his home event on June 4.<br />

He won the Canterbury Rally<br />

in 2012 but has had no luck<br />

since, failing to finish in his<br />

last four attempts. He crashed<br />

in 2013, blew an engine in<br />

2014, crashed in 2015 and blew<br />

another engine in 2016.<br />

“Everyone said last year<br />

that is was done because bad<br />

things come in threes. I’m well<br />

overdue,” he said.<br />

NZRC standings:<br />

Graham Featherstone 51pts,<br />

1; Matt Summerfield 49pts, 2;<br />

Dylan Turner 47pts, 3; Rhys<br />

Gardner 46pts, 4; David Holder<br />

41pts, 5; Andrew Hawkeswood<br />

40pts, 6.<br />

League boys come good in rugby<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

A GROUP of league boys<br />

playing union are looking to<br />

prove they can be the surprise<br />

team in the UC Championship.<br />

<strong>The</strong> St Thomas of Canterbury<br />

College first XV started the Crusaders<br />

region secondary school<br />

competition with an emphatic<br />

64-5 win over Burnside High<br />

School. <strong>The</strong> interesting thing<br />

about the team is if you asked a<br />

large chunk of them which sport<br />

they play the answer would be<br />

‘rugby league’.<br />

Zinzan Martin and Patrick<br />

Elia both scored hat-tricks for<br />

St Thomas’ on Saturday. <strong>The</strong><br />

previous weekend both attended<br />

a South Island rugby league<br />

camp.<br />

More than a half a dozen<br />

of the St Thomas’ team have<br />

played representative rugby<br />

league for Canterbury or the<br />

South Island.<br />

St Thomas’ have also followed<br />

the trend of bringing in a recognised<br />

name in the coaching<br />

department, former Canterbury<br />

and Crusaders flanker Johnny<br />

Leo’o.<br />

On Saturday, they take on<br />

last year’s round-robin winners<br />

Christ’s College. <strong>The</strong> match will<br />

act as a great gauge for what the<br />

team is capable of.<br />

“I don’t think we’d call it an<br />

upset if we get the win. It’s not<br />

daunting for us going to Christ’s,<br />

we’ve got a lot of talent,’’ defence<br />

coach Hamish Barclay said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> league connection at St<br />

Thomas’ isn’t just restricted to<br />

its players. Canterbury Bulls and<br />

Linwood Keas coach Andrew<br />

Auimatagi is a teacher at the<br />

school.<br />

“We want your league boys to<br />

have the best opportunity they<br />

can and playing first XV rugby<br />

seems to be the pinnacle in<br />

Canterbury,” said Auimatagi.<br />

<strong>The</strong> school may also have of<br />

the most exciting players in<br />

the competition in the form of<br />

17-year-old centre Jordan Riki.<br />

<strong>The</strong> former Christchurch Boys’<br />

High School student was named<br />

the under-16 player of the year at<br />

the New Zealand Rugby League<br />

awards in January and is part<br />

of the Brisbane Broncos youth<br />

system.<br />

St Thomas’ may have been<br />

easy beats in the past, but if their<br />

core group of talented league<br />

LEADERS TO CLASH<br />

Coastal Spirit and Ferrymead<br />

Bays will meet in a top-of-thetable<br />

clash in the Mainland<br />

Premier League at Cuthberts<br />

Green on Saturday. Bays lead the<br />

competition after eight rounds<br />

and are on 21 points, three<br />

ahead of Cashmere Technical<br />

and four ahead of Coastal. <strong>The</strong><br />

two teams previously met on<br />

March 25, with Bays defeating<br />

Coastal 1-0 at Ferrymead Park.<br />

TIGERS PLAYERS FOR TEST<br />

Papanui Tigers duo Bunty<br />

Kuruwaka-Crowe and Corrina<br />

Whiley will make their Kiwi<br />

Ferns debuts in tomorrow’s<br />

Anzac test against Australia<br />

in Canberra. Canterbury<br />

women’s team coach Michael<br />

Linton will also be involved<br />

as the assistant coach of the<br />

Kiwi Ferns. Kuruwaka-Crowe<br />

and Whiley are believed to<br />

be the first Canterbury-based<br />

Kiwi Ferns reps since another<br />

Papanui product, Alisha Moses,<br />

who earned her first call-up as<br />

a teenager for the 2008 World<br />

Cup.<br />

DEFENDER HOPEFUL<br />

Coastal Spirit defender<br />

Shaun Liddicoat is the only<br />

Christchurch-based player<br />

named in the 30-man New<br />

Zealand squad ahead of the<br />

Under-20 Football World Cup<br />

in Korea later this month.<br />

<strong>The</strong> University of Canterbury<br />

engineering student is currently<br />

in camp with the team in<br />

Auckland with the hope of<br />

making the final 21-man squad<br />

for the tournament, which<br />

is named on Monday. New<br />

Zealand will play Vietnam,<br />

Honduras and France in their<br />

pool.<br />

KART OPPORTUNITY<br />

Eleven-year-old Jacob Douglas<br />

will head to Italy in October to<br />

take on the world’s best young<br />

kart drivers, representing New<br />

Zealand at the International<br />

ROK Cup Finals. <strong>The</strong> Medbury<br />

School student booked his spot<br />

after winning the Vortex Mini<br />

ROK title at the KartSport New<br />

Zealand National Sprint Championships<br />

in Invercargill last<br />

month. In Italy he will drive for<br />

the OTK kart group whose previous<br />

drivers include seven-time<br />

formula one world champion<br />

Michael Schumacher.

Mauger vying for top job at Highlanders<br />

.kiwi<br />

• By Steve Hepburn<br />

NEW HIGHLANDERS assistant<br />

coach and former Crusader Aaron<br />

Mauger will be one of a cast of<br />

three all vying for the top job.<br />

Mauger, 36, was announced<br />

on Monday as the new assistant<br />

coach for the Highlanders for the<br />

2018 and 2019 seasons.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 45-test All Black will be<br />

the attack coach for the side, replacing<br />

head coach Tony Brown,<br />

who is shifting to Japan to help<br />

coach the national team after<br />

this season.<br />

Mauger has just finished a spell<br />

coaching the Leicester Tigers in<br />

England and was actively pursued<br />

by the Highlanders.<br />

Mauger coached the Crusaders<br />

under Todd Blackadder for three<br />

seasons before heading to the<br />

Leicester Tigers where he was<br />

was head coach under director of<br />

rugby Richard Cockerill.<br />

However, he was moved into<br />

the top job in January when<br />

Cockerill left but was then surprisingly<br />

sacked in March just<br />

after winning some silverware<br />

for the club.<br />

With Brown leaving, a new<br />

head coach is needed but Clark<br />

said the franchise would not<br />

rush that decision.<br />

With the appointment of<br />

Mauger it means none of the<br />

coaching team will have played<br />

for Otago.<br />

Highlanders chief executive<br />

Roger Clark said that never came<br />

into the appointment of Mauger<br />

as the franchise was simply looking<br />

for the best candidate.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y are not many Otago<br />

people out there coaching.<br />

When we got Jamie Joseph and<br />

Simon Culhane in to coach the<br />

Highlanders that was all about<br />

creating a new culture and environment<br />

in the South.’’<br />

He was confident Mauger<br />

would get the best out of the<br />

playing group and would be part<br />

of this season’s review.<br />

Mauger is in the United States<br />

on holiday with his wife, Amy,<br />

and four children. He will head<br />

to Dunedin in July.<br />

HOW TO PLAY<br />

It’s like sudoku: each<br />

vertical and horizontal<br />

line has to contain<br />

the numbers 1-6, and<br />

the numbers can’t be<br />

repeated in any row or<br />

column.<br />

But it’s sudoku with a<br />

twist: <strong>The</strong> numbers in<br />

each heavily outlined<br />

set of squares, called<br />

cages, must produce the<br />

number in the top corner.<br />

For example, 5+ means<br />

the numbers add up to 5,<br />

9x means the numbers<br />

multiply to equal 9.<br />

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

same line or row.<br />

CHECKLIST FOR<br />

SELLING YOUR HOME<br />

MAKE SMALL FIXES<br />

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes,<br />

and correct the flaws that are most<br />

egregious (if affordable) or can be relatively<br />

easily fixed—from repairing cracks in the<br />

walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling<br />

creaky hinges.<br />

SET A PRICE<br />

A real estate agent will give you a market<br />

analysis free of charge or commitment.<br />

Ask a few to get a broader picture of<br />

the market, then ask to see listings for<br />

properties similar to yours that have sold in<br />

the past six months. Check out comparable<br />

listings yourself in the real estate section<br />

of your newspaper or on websites. <strong>The</strong>n<br />

decide whether you want a quick, easy sale<br />

or the highest possible price.<br />

CLEAN & DECLUTTER<br />

Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks,<br />

and “stuff”—toss it, donate it, give it away,<br />

sell it at a yard sale, or put it into storage—<br />

so the house seems more spacious and<br />

buyers can imagine themselves in it.<br />

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT MAINTENANCE<br />

From the moment you start showing your<br />

house, keep the lawn mowed, shrubs<br />

trimmed, gardens weeded, rooms spotless<br />

and clutter-free.<br />

READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN DAYS<br />

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh<br />

flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of<br />

cookies for the homey smell, open the<br />

drapes, keep pets out of sight.<br />

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO YOUR OWN<br />

BUILDING INSPECTION<br />

It may save you time, especially with older<br />

homes, to identify—and potentially solve—<br />

problems your buyer’s inspection will<br />

discover later.<br />

PROPOSED WAINONI PARK<br />

STORMWATER BASIN<br />

EASEMENT ON RESERVE<br />

<strong>The</strong> Aranui catchment is at greater flood risk since<br />

the earthquakes due to land damage. To reduce the<br />

increased flood risk in the catchment the north east<br />

corner of Wainoni Park has been selected as a site for<br />

a new flood storage basin. <strong>The</strong> basin will store flood<br />

water in heavy rainfall events and release it back to<br />

the stormwater network as soon as there is capacity<br />

in the stormwater network, reducing the flood risk to<br />

properties in the adjacent areas.<br />

This is public notice in accordance with the<br />

requirements of Section 48 (2) of the Reserves Act<br />

1977 (Act) that the Council is to be requested to<br />

resolve to grant, subject to the consent of the Minister<br />

of Conservation, easements in gross for the right to<br />

drain water over the land described in Schedule A<br />

below.<br />

Schedule A<br />

Approximately 7,100 square metres of Part Reserve<br />

5208, Section 3 SO 359536 and Lot 2 DP 45894, a<br />

recreation reserve of some 57,600 square metres,<br />

the control of which is vested in the Christchurch City<br />

Council pursuant to the Reserves Act 1977.<br />

Wainoni Park is situated at 31 Hampshire Street. To<br />

provide the required stormwater storage the north-east<br />

section of the park will be dug out by approximately<br />

one to one and a half metres. <strong>The</strong> resulting flood<br />

storage basin will then be extensively landscaped to<br />

enhance the surrounding park environment. <strong>The</strong> space<br />

will remain fully accessible to the public for recreation<br />

purposes at all times other than when temporary<br />

ponding occurs during extreme rainfall events or during<br />

occasional maintenance periods.<br />

To obtain a plan and further details on the proposed<br />

easements please contact:<br />

over part of the reserve described in this notice, may<br />

do so in writing no later than 5pm on Wednesday, 7<br />

June <strong>2017</strong> to the person whose contact details appear<br />
