A YOUNG teenager arrested<br />

for robbing a service station last<br />

week had been through the youth<br />

justice system after holding up the<br />

same place last year.<br />

Last Thursday night, masked,<br />

hammer-wielding robbers struck<br />

Challenge Opawa, taking more<br />

than $6000 of cash and tobacco.<br />

Police have arrested two of the<br />

four suspects, aged 14 and 15,<br />

and are seeking two others. <strong>The</strong><br />

two that were caught have been<br />

charged with aggravated robbery.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> has learned one of<br />

the group took part in the<br />

robbery of the service station in<br />

October.<br />

Police said yesterday they could<br />

not comment on that aspect of the<br />

case.<br />

<strong>The</strong> teenager participated in a<br />

community justice panel late last<br />

year. Hammers and a screwdriver<br />

were used as weapons in the October<br />

hold-up.<br />

A community justice panel puts<br />

offenders and victims in the same<br />

room to find a suitable punishment<br />

and help the offender make<br />

amends for the crime they have<br />

committed instead of putting<br />

young people through the court<br />

system.<br />

SOCIETY DOES its best to<br />

rehabilitate young offenders<br />

and get them back on the rails.<br />

But for some, there is no<br />

hope and no matter what plans<br />

and initiatives are put in, their<br />

lives spiral out of control.<br />

Many years ago a detective<br />

told me a young burglar he had<br />

arrested would go on to kill.<br />

He did. He was involved in one<br />

of the most vicious murders<br />

the city has seen. A totally<br />

random murder of an innocent<br />

young woman.<br />

Another detective told me a<br />

young boy he was dealing with<br />

at the time had the propensity<br />

to become a very serious sex<br />

offender. How right he was.<br />

Like the killer, he is now<br />

serving a lengthy jail term for<br />

terrible crimes.<br />

So what hope is there for the<br />

young teenager who has been<br />

arrested for the Challenge<br />

Opawa service station robbery<br />

last week? (See page 1). We’re<br />

told its the same offender who<br />

robbed it in October.<br />

Chances are the justice<br />

system will see more of this<br />

fellow.<br />

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST<br />

This week in history saw the first trial of electric lighting at<br />

the Lyttelton wharves on <strong>June</strong> 19, 1882. On <strong>June</strong> 20, 1928, the<br />

Canterbury Aero Club was formed. <strong>The</strong> first pilot trained by<br />

the club was a woman, Aroha Clifford. On <strong>June</strong> 21, 1851, the<br />

Christchurch Cricket Club was formed. On the same day in<br />

1897 there were huge celebrations for Queen Victoria’s diamond<br />

jubilee which included the opening of Victoria Park on the Port<br />

Hills and the transformation of Market (Victoria) Square. In<br />

1909 the city’s high pressure water supply began operation. On<br />

<strong>June</strong> <strong>22</strong>, 1954, Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme (right) murder<br />

Parker’s mother in Victoria Park. <strong>The</strong>ir subsequent trial was<br />

one of the most sensational in the city’s history. On <strong>June</strong> 23,<br />

1854, Pioneer John Deans dies at Riccarton. <strong>The</strong> preservation of<br />

Deans Bush was one of his dying wishes.<br />

BID TO GET NATIVE BIRDS BACK<br />

Native birds could return to the city<br />

as part of a new project to get people<br />

growing mistletoe in their gardens. <strong>The</strong><br />

city council project provides instructions<br />

and the seed to plant the native at home.<br />

Mistletoe used to be a common sight, but<br />

the plant’s popularity had dropped because<br />

native birds were rare in the city and seed<br />

wasn’t being spread naturally. Mistletoe<br />

is a favourite food of the bellbird, and by<br />

encouraging more people to grow it, it<br />

is hoped the birds will return. You can<br />

register to take part before the weekend, on<br />

the city council website.<br />

A DRIVER four times the<br />

before crashing into a parked<br />

vehicle in Redwood on<br />

Monday.<br />

THIS YEAR’S Santa Parade has<br />

been saved after Mayor Lianne<br />

Dalziel and city councillors<br />

approved funding for it.<br />

<strong>The</strong> parade organisers had<br />

just one month left before they<br />

ran out of money, as a funding<br />

cut last year<br />

forced them to<br />

dip into their<br />

reserves to pay<br />

for the parade.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y made a<br />

passionate plea<br />

Pam Morris<br />

to the city council<br />

last month for<br />

$100,000 to save<br />

the parade.<br />

On Tuesday, city councillors<br />

approved a $35,000 grant for<br />

this year’s parade, which would<br />

be topped up by a $65,000 grant<br />

from the city council major<br />

events fund.<br />

Christchurch Children’s<br />

Christmas Parade Trust organiser<br />

Pam Morris said it was a<br />

great relief to know the parade<br />

would not have to shut down.<br />

“It’s a victory, because it<br />

means we can actually get on<br />

with organising the parade,” she<br />

said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> parade has been run in<br />

Christchurch for more than 70<br />

years, and she said she had been<br />

very worried it would have to be<br />

cancelled permanently.<br />

police after they saw the motorist<br />

driving erratically on Sawyers<br />

Arms Rd at about 1.30pm.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y then followed the vehicle<br />

to Queen Elizabeth II Dr.<br />

<strong>The</strong> vehicle then clipped a<br />

van parked on the side of the<br />

road near St Bede’s College<br />

before coming to a stop about<br />

200m up the road at about<br />

1.45pm.<br />

Police arrived shortly after<br />

the crash and arrested the<br />

“If it wasn’t for <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong>, we<br />

would never have got this far,”<br />

she said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> has run a series of<br />

articles highlighting the parade<br />

funding problems, which<br />

began when the city council<br />

cut the parade funding at short<br />

notice last year from $97,750 to<br />

$69,000.<br />

Until the funding cut, the<br />

cost of the parade – about<br />

$200,000 per year – had been<br />

split between corporate and<br />

private sponsorship and the<br />

driver, who is in his 40s.<br />

He was not injured in the<br />

crash.<br />

Senior Sergeant Stephan<br />

McDaniel said it was<br />

concerning that someone could<br />

be that intoxicated at that time<br />

of day and thought it was okay<br />

to drive.<br />

“This is why we have checkpoints<br />

at all different times of<br />

the day and this reinforces that<br />

need. We want to thank the<br />

city council. In December, Ms<br />

Dalziel promised the city council<br />

would not let the parade fall<br />

over and said the city council<br />

would look at including the<br />

funding in this year’s Annual<br />

Plan.<br />

But in January, the parade<br />

trustees were told in an email<br />

that there had been “no commitment<br />

so far” to set aside<br />

funding for the parade, so it<br />

would have to compete with<br />

other events for funding.<br />

<strong>The</strong> trust then turned to<br />

person for reporting this to us<br />

and taking the time to follow<br />

the vehicle so we could catch up<br />

with it quickly,” he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> driver has been charged<br />

with excess breath alcohol and<br />

will appear in the district court<br />

on July 18.<br />

<strong>The</strong> incident comes days after<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> revealed last week<br />

that drink-driving statistics in<br />

Canterbury had almost halved<br />

over the last decade.<br />

bills, but they could not raise<br />

enough to cover the shortfall.<br />

But after the appeal to Ms<br />

Dalziel and city councillors last<br />

month, the Annual Plan was<br />

changed to include funding for<br />

the parade.<br />

<strong>The</strong> parade costs include rent,<br />

insurance, maintenance of floats<br />

and costumes, traffic management<br />

and running costs on the<br />

day of the parade and a wage for<br />

one paid organiser.<br />

Challenge Opawa staff<br />

member Ged Hilliard who<br />

was held up on Thursday<br />

said the teenager needs to<br />

be “taught a lesson.”<br />

“Sounds like he wants<br />

to be a criminal for life.<br />

So it is hard to tell how he<br />

will react to any form of<br />

punishment,” he said.<br />

Mr Hilliard had a gut<br />

feeling when he was being<br />

robbed that one of the<br />

offenders was same as in<br />

October.<br />

“When it happened I<br />

thought, I’ve seen this<br />

before,” he said.<br />

One of the hammerwielding<br />

robbers told Mr<br />

Hilliard to back-up or he<br />

would kill him.<br />

‘Sounds like he wants<br />

News<br />

Cameraman Ron Madden’s colourful<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

RON MADDEN, a colourful<br />

TVNZ cameraman who worked<br />

for more than 40 years covering<br />

stories from conflicts in South<br />

Africa to the Canterbury<br />

earthquakes, died last week after<br />

a battle with cancer.<br />

Mr Madden, 64, began writing<br />

his own eulogy soon after he was<br />

diagnosed with cancer early last<br />

year, saying: “I would rather tell<br />

my own lies”. He began it with a<br />

paraphrase of comedian Spike<br />

Mulligan’s infamous epitaph:<br />

“See, I told you I was bloody<br />

sick!”<br />

Friends and workmates of<br />

Mr Madden said that described<br />

his attitude to life – fun, witty,<br />

forthright and irreverent.<br />

But they also described him as<br />

someone who was dependable,<br />

a great friend, and gave a huge<br />

amount of time and passion to<br />

helping others.<br />

He grew up in Christchurch<br />

and went to St Bede’s College.<br />

In his eulogy, which he worked<br />

on for months while receiving<br />

treatment, Mr Madden said the<br />

highlight was starting a gun<br />

club at school, and the worst day<br />

was getting “six of the best” for<br />

ACTION: Ron Madden filming on Manchester St the day of the<br />

February <strong>22</strong>, 2011, earthquake.<br />

cheating in Latin class.<br />

He worked in several jobs before<br />

starting at TVNZ, including<br />

as an NZ Forest Service ranger,<br />

tour driver, deer shooter and<br />

concrete truck driver.<br />

As a cameraman he was able<br />

to do a lot of travelling, including<br />

to Antarctica, which he<br />

described as “the most boring<br />

place in the world”, and to South<br />

Africa, where he remembered<br />

riding with armed soldiers,<br />

filming young boys playing in a<br />

rubbish dump.<br />

TVNZ South Island news<br />

operations manager Mike<br />

Fitzgerald said he had worked<br />

with Mr Madden since the early<br />

80s.<br />

He said Mr Madden was a<br />

fantastic cameraman, with a<br />

passion for the job, a wonderful<br />

eye for a frame and an ability to<br />

engage with people.<br />

life behind the lens remembered<br />

He captured many important<br />

moments in history, including<br />

a lot of the central city footage<br />

immediately after the February<br />

<strong>22</strong>, 2011, earthquake, which is<br />

still used today.<br />

Mr Fitzgerald said one of Mr<br />

Madden’s biggest strengths was<br />

his ability to help people open up<br />

on camera.<br />

“I’ll always remember some of<br />

his whitebaiting pieces filmed on<br />

the Coast, where he really loved<br />

what he was doing. <strong>The</strong> colours,<br />

the sunrises and sunsets, the<br />

water, the older people’s faces,<br />

he just made it sparkle,” he<br />

said.<br />

Although Mr Madden was<br />

not impressed with Antarctica,<br />

he loved the West Coast, and<br />

also took any opportunity to get<br />

in a helicopter or four-wheeldrive.<br />

“He loved the outdoors but you<br />

wouldn’t get him hiking up a hill,<br />

he preferred to drive or fly. He<br />

had his own 4WD and he loved<br />

it, arm out the window, Ray Bans<br />

on,” Mr Fitzgerald said.<br />

He said Mr Madden had<br />

“underneath his gruff exterior,<br />

a lot of kindness,” and took the<br />

time to take many young people<br />

under his wing and train them<br />

BEHIND THE SCENES: Ron Madden filming a television piece<br />

in 1984.<br />

– including Phil Keoghan, who<br />

went on to host <strong>The</strong> Amazing<br />

Race.<br />

He had many nicknames<br />

– Ron to friends, Mads to<br />

workmates, and “builders crack”<br />

for the low-rider jeans he wore<br />

“before they were cool.”<br />

Outside work, Mr Madden<br />

was a passionate clay shooter,<br />

and represented New Zealand<br />

at several international<br />

championships.<br />

Former South Island Clay<br />

Shooters president Neil<br />

Winsloe said Mr Madden was<br />

instrumental in setting up and<br />

running the club.<br />

“If there were things to be<br />

done, Ron would do them. He<br />

was a great organiser, whether it<br />

was organising accommodation<br />

for a trip or fundraising for the<br />

club. He was a lot of fun. And<br />

he was a good drinker, always<br />

had a lot of stories. Without his<br />

assistance and backing, the club<br />

would not be what it is in the<br />

South Island today, that’s for<br />

sure,” he said.<br />

Mr Madden finished his<br />

eulogy with a message to his<br />

wife, Deanne Harvey: “Thank<br />

you, thank you, Deanne, for<br />

everything.”<br />

Mr Fitzgerald said Mr Madden<br />

had to finish at work early last<br />

year because of his cancer, after<br />

barely taking a day sick in his<br />

life – he had 280 sick days owing<br />

when he left.<br />

“All in all, he was a really good<br />

person, a really decent bloke,<br />

and a bit of a legend in his own<br />

lifetime,” he said.<br />

A service to remember Mr<br />

Madden’s life will be held next<br />

month where his eulogy will be<br />

handed out..<br />

TEARS, CHEERS and telling<br />

front row view of Barack and<br />

Michelle Obama’s personal<br />

moments in the White House.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Cantabrian spent two<br />

years working in there as an<br />

independent correspondent, one<br />

of more than 200 people from<br />

across the world who make up<br />

the White House press corps.<br />

She recently moved back to<br />

Christchurch for family reasons,<br />

but said she kept her press credentials<br />

and planned to return to<br />

Washington DC later this year.<br />

She began working there in<br />

2015, representing Herald de<br />

Paris, an online news site.<br />

She often photographed the<br />

Obamas, attended many of their<br />

meetings, and followed their<br />

political ups and downs.<br />

She said both President<br />

Obama and the then First Lady<br />

were “very emotive” people, and<br />

fascinating to watch.<br />

“I’ve seen Obama look jaded<br />

and exhausted, and I’ve seen him<br />

cheer and laugh when sports<br />

teams came in. I’ve seen him hug<br />

his staff. I’ve seen Michelle tell<br />

people off. She interacted with<br />

children, and she worked in the<br />

Port Hills fire cost $4.5m<br />

<strong>The</strong> Oval Office, where she was<br />

invited to photograph President<br />

Obama sign important documents,<br />

was smaller than she had<br />

always imagined, she said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> amount of security checks<br />

and clearances she had to go<br />

through to first be approved and<br />

then to enter the White House<br />

grounds were also something she<br />

had never experienced before, she<br />

said.<br />

She was working there when<br />

Donald Trump became president,<br />

and said the atmosphere completely<br />

changed as he replaced<br />

most staff, right from the security<br />

to the interns.<br />

“I think the new administration<br />

coming in weren’t fully prepared,<br />

they didn’t have the same<br />

political background. Everyone<br />

was polite but it was chaotic.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y’re obviously still finding<br />

their feet,” she said.<br />

Ms Wilding’s background is in<br />

the film industry, and she spent<br />

some time living in LA before<br />

moving to Washington DC – but<br />

she said Hollywood was “child’s<br />

play” compared with work in the<br />

White House.<br />

She said many correspondents<br />

there had worked in the White<br />

House for 20 or 30 years, and<br />

breaking in as a New Zealander<br />

was very difficult.<br />

“You do feel like a minority,<br />

and realise we are from a very<br />

small country that doesn’t make<br />

much difference. <strong>The</strong>y’d rather<br />

answer a question from someone<br />

from Korea, because of the importance<br />

of the relations there, or<br />

from one of the five major American<br />

networks,” she said.<br />

FIGHTING THE Port Hills<br />

fires cost the Department of<br />

Conservation more than $4.5<br />

million.<br />

Two fires, several kilometres<br />

apart, started in early February<br />

this year; two days later they<br />

had combined. Helicopter pilot<br />

and ex-SAS soldier Steve Askin<br />

died when his chopper crashed<br />

trying to fight the fires. Nine<br />

houses were destroyed and two<br />

were significantly damaged.<br />

Hundreds of people were evacuated.<br />

DOC spokesman Andy<br />

Roberts said the department<br />

contributed more than $3.5<br />

million in operational costs and<br />

$1 million in staff and other<br />

internal costs. This amounted to<br />

about half of last year’s firefighting<br />

costs of $8.7 million.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> department supplied<br />

more than 130 fully trained<br />

rural firefighters, including fire<br />

behaviour experts, air attack<br />

managers and sector leaders<br />

during the fires, which started<br />

in February and burned for two<br />

months.<br />

“If we add in time spent on<br />

aerial mapping, incident planning<br />

and other background<br />

support roles, that would come<br />

to more than 11,000 hours of<br />

staff time, some of whom were<br />

on duty for up to 15 hours a day.<br />

This all amounts to about 50 per<br />

cent of the total costs incurred<br />

on the Port Hills fires, which<br />

destroyed some 1660ha.”<br />

DOC has to respond to fires<br />

within a 1km margin of protected<br />

areas. No public conservation<br />

land was burned in the Port<br />

Hills fire.<br />

DOC had also helped<br />

fight major fires at Broken<br />

River, Hawkes Bay, Hanmer and<br />

Queenstown during last summer’s<br />

fire season. More than 460<br />

staff are fully trained to fight<br />

fires on or near conservation<br />

land.<br />

in rural fire and the threat<br />

it poses to the natural and heritage<br />

values that DOC is charged<br />

with protecting.<br />

Doctors warn of wait times<br />

Street lights<br />

set to go LED<br />

• By Bridget Rutherford<br />

THE CITY’S street lights could be<br />

replaced with LED technology in<br />

a bid to save $1.6 million each year<br />

in electricity costs.<br />

<strong>The</strong> city council is preparing an<br />

application to the New Zealand<br />

Transport Agency to apply for<br />

funding to do the work.<br />

City council planning and delivery<br />

transport manager Lynette<br />

Ellis said it would cost about $25.5<br />

million to replace the city’s 38,000<br />

street lights, excluding parks.<br />

If the city council’s application<br />

is approved, NZTA would pay for<br />

about $21.6 million of the total<br />

cost.<br />

Twelve per cent of the street<br />

lights on roads already have LED<br />

lights. For <strong>2017</strong>, electricity to run<br />

the street lights was expected to<br />

cost $4.6 million, Ms Ellis said.<br />

Dunedin City Council will begin<br />

replacing its 15,000 street lights<br />

with LED technology soon, at a<br />

total cost of $14 million.<br />

YOU MAY face a wait to see a<br />

doctor this winter, as both GPs<br />

and hospitals warn they are at<br />

capacity.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Canterbury District<br />

Health Board, which has<br />

expressed<br />

concern that beds<br />

at Christchurch<br />

Hospital will be<br />

full this winter,<br />

has asked people<br />

to call their<br />

Kate<br />

Baddock<br />

community<br />

doctor first if they<br />

are sick.<br />

But the city’s<br />

GPs have said they are also<br />

worried about numbers, and are<br />

already struggling to fit people<br />

in for appointments.<br />

CDHB planning and funding<br />

general manager Carolyn<br />

Gullery said a number of<br />

strategies were in place to<br />

manage the situation,<br />

including an “acute demand<br />

programme” that could treat<br />

people at home.<br />

She was concerned about<br />

bed numbers, especially at<br />

Christchurch Hospital, she said.<br />

“It will be a challenging<br />

winter and we recommend that<br />

Capacity: <strong>The</strong> city’s GPs have said they are struggling to fit<br />

people in for appointments this winter.<br />

the people who have health<br />

conditions that can become<br />

worse in winter connect with<br />

their general practice team and<br />

develop a plan about what to do<br />

if they become unwell,” she said.<br />

New Zealand Medical<br />

Association chairwoman Kate<br />

Baddock told <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> doctors<br />

had reported being too busy to<br />

see more patients.<br />

That was because funding<br />

constraints meant some medical<br />

centres could not afford enough<br />

doctors, Dr Baddock said.<br />

But Christchurch doctors<br />

say they will not turn people<br />

away.<br />

Hornby<br />

Medical<br />

Centre practice<br />

manager Rosie<br />

Kennedy said<br />

appointments<br />

were kept free<br />

for urgent cases,<br />

and people with<br />

illnesses like the<br />

flu would be seen.<br />

She said funding was a<br />

David<br />

Jones<br />

problem, as they would build<br />

an extra room and bring in an<br />

extra doctor if they had more<br />

money.<br />

David Jones, a director<br />

of Better Health practices,<br />

which includes the Linwood,<br />

Moorhouse and Barrington<br />

medical centres, said they were<br />

under a lot of pressure.<br />

As well as the cost of extra<br />

patients, he said GPs had<br />

also faced extra technological<br />

and health and safety requirements,<br />

and the funding had<br />

not kept up.<br />

Councillor attacks arches<br />

• By Julia Evans and Sarla<br />

Donovan<br />

CITY COUNCILLOR Glenn<br />

Livingstone has lashed out over<br />

spending on the new airport<br />

Gateway Bridge arches on social<br />

media.<br />

On Saturday, fellow councillor<br />

Vicki Buck posted a picture of<br />

the bridge’s arches at the Memorial<br />

Ave/Russley Rd intersection<br />

to her Facebook page.<br />

Cr Livingstone kicked back replying:<br />

“What a waste of money.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> arches have attracted a lot<br />

of criticism from the public due<br />

to their $4 million price tag.<br />

CONTROVERSIAL: At a cost<br />

of $4 million, the new airport<br />

arches are taking shape on<br />

Memorial Ave.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

And Cr Livingstone said<br />

the money would have been<br />

better spent on a replacement<br />

bridge for Pages Rd in New<br />

Brighton.<br />

However, he said he was simply<br />

frustrated with the prioritisation<br />

of the arches over projects<br />

residents of the city’s east have<br />

been waiting for.<br />

“I was trying to make a point<br />

over priority. Some would argue<br />

both are a priority, and the<br />

intersection (at Memorial Ave)<br />

did need addressing. It’s just<br />

frustration at different viewpoints<br />

and seeing other priorities<br />

leapfrogging what our local<br />

(Coastal-Burwood) community<br />

needs,” he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Pages Rd bridge was seen<br />

as a priority, two years ago but<br />

was pushed back to 2021 to<br />

2023, Cr Livingstone said.<br />

He also admitted all elected<br />

city council members are guilty<br />

of “letting fly” on social media<br />

Man shot in face<br />

by police was<br />

also a sex offender<br />

A 24-YEAR-OLD shot in the<br />

face by police is a convicted sex<br />

offender, it can now be revealed.<br />

Murray James Allan (right)<br />

pleaded guilty to a<br />

variety of charges in the<br />

district court on Friday<br />

after the incident in<br />

Woolston earlier this<br />

year.<br />

Police fired on Allan<br />

after he aimed a blank firing<br />

pistol at officers when a patrol<br />

went to search the parked vehicle<br />

he was in.<br />

Records show in January 2013,<br />

the then 19-year-old was jailed<br />

for three years and two months<br />

for having non-consensual sex<br />

with a 14-year-old in what was<br />

described as “very close to rape”.<br />

<strong>The</strong> court was told the girl was<br />

emotionally traumatised, and<br />

had tried to commit suicide twice<br />

following it.<br />

At the time, Allan’s presentence<br />

report said he could<br />

cause a “high level of harm” if he<br />

offended again.<br />

Allan was released on parole<br />

on December 3, 2015, with<br />

conditions he would not have any<br />

unsupervised contact<br />

with under-16s, or with<br />

the victim.<br />

Allan has been<br />

remanded in custody,<br />

and will be sentenced<br />

for the February<br />

incident on August 10.<br />

Police had been on an<br />

unrelated call out at 2am when<br />

they stopped to question Allan<br />

and another man in the parked<br />

car.<br />

When officers thought they<br />

saw a cannabis pipe in the vehicle<br />

they said they were going to<br />

search it and called for back<br />

up.<br />

Allan then produced the pistol<br />

and aimed it at one of the officers,<br />

prompting police to shoot him in<br />

the side of the face.<br />

He was given first aid, before<br />

being taken to hospital in an<br />

ambulance with minor injuries.<br />

AN award-winning<br />

company that designed the<br />

St Andrew’s College chapel<br />

and the bus interchange<br />

will do the architecture<br />

for Linwood College’s<br />

Architectus has been<br />

awarded the contract for<br />

the full-school rebuild and<br />

redevelopment.<br />

<strong>The</strong> company’s other<br />

projects include the bus<br />

interchange, St Andrew’s<br />

chapel, the central city’s<br />

new Knowledge Centre,<br />

POLICE SEIZED a rifle<br />

and knife from a vehicle<br />

they pulled over in the<br />

early hours of Wednesday.<br />

<strong>The</strong> suspicious vehicle<br />

was stopped on Holland St<br />

in Avonside at 3.33am.<br />

A police spokeswoman<br />

could not determine if<br />

the car was reported to<br />

police, or if it was stopped<br />

after being noticed by the<br />

patrolling officers.<br />

He said schools were<br />

more than places to learn<br />

– they helped shape the<br />

identity of the community.<br />

So any design had to<br />

reflect that and the values<br />

and culture of the community.<br />

“This project is special<br />

not only for its scale but in<br />

particular for the strong<br />

pedagogical vision developed<br />

by the college and the<br />

leadership role it is looking<br />

to undertake in the<br />

revitalisation of the eastern<br />

suburbs of Christchurch.”<br />

He said the project was<br />

personal for him as he<br />

lived in Redcliffs, which<br />

was part of Linwood’s<br />

catchment, and he wanted<br />

to contribute to shaping<br />

the future of the school.<br />

“I believe the current<br />

college leadership is working<br />

successfully to rebuild<br />

the confidence of all of<br />

their community in what<br />

Linwood College has to,<br />

and can, offer.”<br />

Principal Richard<br />

<strong>The</strong>y searched the vehicle<br />

and found a rifle in the<br />

boot and a knife.<br />

A 34-year-old man was<br />

arrested and charged with<br />

possession of an offensive<br />

weapon and unlawful<br />

possession of a firearm.<br />

He will appear in the<br />

district court on <strong>June</strong> 27.<br />

•<strong>The</strong> Australian man<br />

who died after a central city<br />

motel fire on <strong>June</strong> 14 was<br />

44-year-old Jason Edward<br />

Edmundson said the<br />

awarding of the contract<br />

was a step forward in the<br />

redevelopment.<br />

<strong>The</strong> school’s buildings<br />

have reached the end of<br />

their lifespan, and it has<br />

carried out significant<br />

consultation with the<br />

community on how it<br />

could look and feel better.<br />

It wants to become<br />

the school of choice for<br />

students living in its<br />

catchment, including<br />

Sumner, Redcliffs, Mt<br />

Pleasant, and Lyttelton,<br />

many of whom travel to<br />

schools on the other side<br />

of town.<br />

<strong>The</strong> redevelopment<br />

comes after a limited statutory<br />

manager was asked to<br />

step into the school in 2014<br />

to resolve issues between<br />

staff and management.<br />

Principal Margaret Paiti<br />

resigned in <strong>June</strong> 2015 after<br />

five years in the role.<br />

Physical building work<br />

was expected to begin on<br />

site next year.<br />

Police seize weapons; name fire victim<br />

Sillick. Mr Sillick suffered<br />

critical injuries in the blaze<br />

at the City Central Motel<br />

Apartments, on the corner<br />

of Barbadoes and Hereford<br />

Sts, at about 6.50am.<br />

Detective Senior Sergeant<br />

Mark Worner would not be<br />

drawn on what had caused<br />

the fire but said it was “not<br />

accidental.”<br />

Police have examined<br />

CCTV footage from the<br />

motel, and are not looking<br />

for anyone else connected.

Fake Lions gear bust at stadium<br />

FAKE LIONS tour<br />

gear was seized at AMI<br />

Stadium before the match<br />

against the Crusaders.<br />

Government officials<br />

are cracking down on the<br />

sale of fake merchandise<br />

during the tour. A Ministry<br />

of Business, Innovation<br />

and Employment<br />

spokeswoman confirmed<br />

fake Lions tour gear had<br />

been seized before games<br />

in Christchurch, Dunedin<br />

and Rotorua.<br />

“A group of individuals<br />

have been selling items<br />

with unauthorised association<br />

with the Lions<br />

series.”<br />

MBIE tourism, sectors,<br />

regions and cities general<br />

manager Iain Cossar said<br />

it is “currently investigating<br />

a small number of<br />

incidents involving the<br />

sale of merchandise” and<br />

“three to four individuals”<br />

have been responsible for<br />

it.<br />

<strong>The</strong> spokeswoman<br />

said MBIE has served “a<br />

number” of breach notices<br />

under the Major Events<br />

Management Act 2007,<br />

and “continues to gather<br />

evidence should the ministry<br />

decide to prosecute.”<br />

MBIE has not encountered<br />

any people selling<br />

fake All Blacks merchandise<br />

before games.<br />

<strong>The</strong> series status as a<br />

major event under the Act<br />

means it has protection<br />

for specific words and emblems<br />

Retirees bid to revive<br />

Garden City image<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

A GROUP of gardeners are<br />

cultivating a plan to put<br />

Christchurch back on the<br />

map as the Garden City – a<br />

public garden the size of<br />

nine rugby fields, created<br />

by retirees.<br />

<strong>The</strong> plan has been<br />

designed by Christchurch<br />

Beautifying Association<br />

members, who are working<br />

with private developers to<br />

create it.<br />

<strong>The</strong>ir plan is to create a<br />

50-60 unit retirement village,<br />

where residents would<br />

all be gardeners.<br />

Each unit would have its<br />

own garden, maintained<br />

by the owner – but the<br />

gardens would all be connected<br />

and open to the<br />

public, forming a giant<br />

public park.<br />

On Monday, association<br />

president Ron Andrew and<br />

former president Brian<br />

Briggs put the plan to the<br />

city council’s social and<br />

community development<br />

committee.<br />

Committee chairman<br />

Phil Clearwater said staff<br />

had been asked to look at<br />

ways the city council could<br />

be involved and support<br />

the project.<br />

That could include<br />

building a community hall<br />

or facility in the park, or<br />

helping the group through<br />

the consenting process to<br />

speed it up.<br />

Mr Briggs said he already<br />

had a list of people<br />

interested in buying units<br />

in the village, and had met<br />

with developers willing to<br />

build it.<br />

“I often talk to people<br />

about going into a retirement<br />

home, and they say,<br />

‘no, I definitely won’t do<br />

that, because I won’t have a<br />

garden’,” he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> plan would allow<br />

people to downsize into a<br />

supported living environment,<br />

while still giving<br />

them space to be creative<br />

and contribute to the community,<br />

he said.<br />

“It would be a real dream<br />

come true for a lot of people,”<br />

he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> group is currently<br />

working with building<br />

company G.J Gardner<br />

Homes, and are looking<br />

at creating the village on<br />

a 9.5ha piece of land near<br />

Papanui.<br />

Mr Briggs said each unit<br />

would be designed to look<br />

like a little cottage, but<br />

would have a fully modern<br />

interior.<br />

<strong>The</strong> estimated cost of<br />

each unit title would be<br />

about $350,000, he said.<br />

Once set up, the village<br />

would be run by a body<br />

corporate.<br />

Mr Andrew said he believed<br />

the village could be<br />

a huge asset for the city.<br />

After Christchurch won<br />

the Garden City of the<br />

World title in 1997, thousands<br />

of people travelled<br />

from as far as the United<br />

States and Japan to visit,<br />

he said.<br />

He hoped the village<br />

could become a similar<br />

attraction.<br />

Walk to prevent suicide<br />

• By Bridget Rutherford<br />

MORE THAN 500 people<br />

are expected to gather in<br />

Hagley Park this weekend<br />

to raise awareness for<br />

suicide prevention.<br />

HopeWalk Christchurch<br />

will take place from 8-9am<br />

on Saturday, starting at the<br />

Botanic Gardens Visitor<br />

Centre.<br />

HopeWalk Suicide<br />

Prevention Trust founder<br />

Joseph Fa’afiu said the<br />

walk would bring people<br />

together to show people<br />

are not alone. <strong>The</strong>y would<br />

be wearing yellow – the<br />

colour of hope.<br />

<strong>The</strong> trust aims to break<br />

the stigma, shame and<br />

silence around suicide. A<br />

coroner’s report said Canterbury<br />

had the highest<br />

number of suicides in the<br />

country from July 2015 to<br />

July 2016, with 78. In the<br />

last decade, there were 599<br />

suicides in Canterbury.<br />

Mr Fa’afiu said trauma<br />

and anxiety, which could<br />

lead to depression, was<br />

a high contributor to<br />

the high suicide rate in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

ongoing earthquakes in<br />

also act as more external<br />

the only contributor, but it<br />

people’s lives, weight that<br />

some may not be able to<br />

“Our mission is that we want our<br />

customers to save money – that’s what<br />

the business is designed for,” says owner<br />

Palak Harry.<br />

Palak and husband Alex arrived in<br />

Christchurch from India in 2012 with<br />

just $700, wanting to settle here and start<br />

a business. Palak had previous business<br />

experience, and decided that for their<br />

New Zealand business venture she<br />

would import cosmetics and sell them<br />

here. Reaching their goal hasn’t been an<br />

easy road, however.<br />

“We had a very rough start,” she says.<br />

“After working and saving the money to<br />

start the business we ordered our first<br />

stock, but it didn’t arrive. So, we saved up<br />

again and ordered stock from the United<br />

States. It arrived, but it was all expired so<br />

we had to get rid of it all.”<br />

Store based in Bush Inn Centre<br />

Despite these setbacks, Palak was<br />

determined to carry on with her plans.<br />

“In my heart, I believed there would be a<br />

good supplier, and eventually, after a few<br />

more attempts I found one.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> couple bought a small quantity from<br />

the US supplier and sold the products<br />

from their home. When this proved<br />

successful, they started selling at the<br />

Sunday market, with Alex still working<br />

full-time and all their extra money going<br />

back into the business.<br />

<strong>The</strong> next step was opening pop-up stores<br />

on four days a week – Wednesday to<br />

Saturday.<br />

“WHERE THE SALE NEVER ENDS”<br />

up To 70% off<br />

<strong>The</strong> one stop shop for Cosmetics and Fragrances (for women and men)<br />

THE MAKEUP SALE SHOP<br />

Owners: Alex & Palak Harry<br />

“We opened them as an ‘event’, in<br />

different towns around the South<br />

Island –Timaru, Dunedin, Nelson and<br />

Blenheim. We were all over the South<br />

Island for a couple of years and also in<br />

Christchurch at <strong>The</strong> Palms, Hornby,<br />

Northlands Mall and the Bush Inn.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se proved a great financial success<br />

and continued to grow, but with Palak<br />

now pregnant with their first child, they<br />

decided it was time to settle down. So in<br />

January 2016 they opened<br />

their first store, <strong>The</strong><br />

Makeup Sale, in the Bush<br />

Inn Centre, with a second<br />

store opening in Dunedin<br />

in September 2016. Palak<br />

now employs nine staff<br />

over the two stores.<br />

“We will still have<br />

the pop-up stores in<br />

Northlands Mall starting<br />

in August/September,”<br />

Palak says, “and we<br />

are looking at opening<br />

another permanent store<br />

in Rangiora.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> Makeup Sale stocks a wide selection<br />

of top brands including Revlon, Almay,<br />

L’Oreal, Maybelline, Rimmel of London,<br />

New York Colors and Cover Girl. <strong>The</strong>y<br />

are also the exclusive New Zealand<br />

stockists of the UK brand Technic.<br />

“An example of the savings for customers<br />

is more than 50 per cent on foundations<br />

– they are never more than $20,” Palak<br />

says. “We also have a huge range of<br />

fragrances. We buy products at lower<br />

prices and pass these low prices on to<br />

our customers.”<br />

Ensuring collaboration<br />

ON Monday<br />

afternoon about<br />

300 people gathered<br />

at <strong>The</strong> Piano on<br />

Armagh St for the<br />

first City Leaders’<br />

Forum.<br />

When I was appointed<br />

Minister supporting Greater<br />

Christchurch Regeneration just<br />

over seven weeks ago, I committed<br />

to keeping the community<br />

as up-to-date as possible and<br />

working alongside Mayor Lianne<br />

Dalziel, the city council, Regenerate<br />

Christchurch and Otakaro, as<br />

well as other agencies and community<br />

groups.<br />

I did this because I firmly<br />

believe that by working together<br />

we can create something really<br />

special.<br />

<strong>The</strong> forum, hosted by the<br />

mayor and I, was the first in a<br />

series of events to ensure greater<br />

collaboration and cooperation<br />

among our city’s leadership.<br />

It was an opportunity to<br />

communicate our successes, our<br />

challenges and the milestones<br />

we’ve achieved since the quakes.<br />

It was also an opportunity for<br />

open and honest discussion on<br />

key rebuild and regeneration<br />

issues.<br />

<strong>The</strong> mayor and I are united<br />

in our commitment to making<br />

Nicky Wagner<br />

Christchurch the best possible<br />

place to live, work and raise a<br />

family. We see a city full of opportunity.<br />

Accompanied by a panel of<br />

local business leaders, community<br />

group representatives<br />

and regeneration partners, we<br />

discussed concepts such as maintaining<br />

momentum and effective<br />

collaboration, as well as specific<br />

regeneration projects like the<br />

metro sports facility, performing<br />

arts precinct and residential red<br />

zone.<br />

Christchurch is lucky to have<br />

so many leaders of such a high<br />

calibre — all of whom want<br />

what’s best for their city. I’m a<br />

naturally optimistic and positive<br />

person but that doesn’t mean<br />

ignoring the challenges we’re facing<br />

or the work that still needs to<br />

be done. By working together, by<br />

more actively engaging with the<br />

community and staying focused<br />

on the task at hand, we can and<br />

will be successful.<br />

I look forward to the next<br />

forum at the end of next month.<br />

Some city councillors are<br />

frustrated they still haven’t<br />

had a formal meeting with<br />

the new rebuild boss more<br />

than two months after she<br />

took over the role<br />

Sam Newton – This woman<br />

did nothing for the people who<br />

elected her after the earthquakes,<br />

now she’s in a higher<br />

profile job I’m not surprised<br />

that’s changed.<br />

Andrew Johnson – Who<br />

would have thought, eh. Someone<br />

actually worse than Brownlee<br />

exists.<br />

Nicholas Smeaton –<br />

Maybe she’s decided she’s got<br />

more important things to do –<br />

like going sailing on Auckland<br />

Harbour.<br />

Alan Papprill – She’s probably<br />

out on the water somewhere<br />

rather than engaging with either<br />

the voters or her job. Out of<br />

touch with reality . . . typical<br />

National Party hack.<br />

Graham Pownceby – Did<br />

anyone seriously expect anything<br />

more of a National MP?<br />

Good job, the election isn’t far<br />

away.<br />

Chris Farrier – Time for a<br />

rethink on this rebuild boss, we<br />

have been sitting in limbo far<br />

too long.<br />

Graham Pownceby –<br />

No wonder she’s not had any<br />

meetings, too busy out on the<br />

harbour.<br />

•From page 17<br />

Hamish Wilson – But she’s<br />

happy out there, sailing on the<br />

Waitemata Harbour.<br />

Hugh Jonathan<br />

McGuire – That’s disappointing.<br />

<strong>The</strong> artist behind the<br />

185 Empty Chairs tribute<br />

is working to make it<br />

permanent – and creators<br />

of <strong>The</strong> Lord of the Rings<br />

movies may help to make it<br />

happen<br />

Juliet Dalley – I love this<br />

memorial as it helps to visualise<br />

each person no longer with us.<br />

As the article says – “the missing<br />

chair at the table”. I appreciate<br />

not all people will share my sentiments,<br />

but for me this makes<br />

a much greater statement than<br />

the new memorial. Good luck to<br />

the artist (Mr Peter Majendie)<br />

and I do hope the city council<br />

seriously considers the proposal.<br />

It will be sad to lose this significant<br />

tribute to all those that we<br />

lost.<br />

Julie Foster – I think it’s a<br />

very visual and powerful memorial<br />

to those we lost on a day<br />

that changed our lives forever, I<br />

personally think the 185 chairs<br />

have a place in our city and in<br />

our hearts.<br />

Stephen Graham – We<br />

have our permanent memorial<br />

now. <strong>The</strong> chairs memorial<br />

served its purpose well. Time<br />

to move on. On the other hand,<br />

there’s nothing to stop the artist<br />

from displaying it on his own<br />

private property.<br />

Jan Wikaira – I love this<br />

memorial. It came first and from<br />

the heart and I would love to see<br />

it find a permanent place.<br />

Bronwyn Hendry – This<br />

is one of the most powerful<br />

installations I’ve seen in my life.<br />

I really hope it stays. It is an important<br />

part of history now.<br />

Ali Greening – This a place I<br />

go when I’m grieving the loss of<br />

people, lifestyle and opportunity.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re is something here that recognises<br />

that sometimes life sucks,<br />

and we are forever affected by the<br />

loss of someone or something.<br />

Something that I do not find at<br />

the other memorial. Yes, it came<br />

from the earthquakes, but it is<br />

about so much more.<br />

•Our People, p<strong>22</strong> & 23<br />

Health funding ‘botch-up’<br />

hurts Canterbury patients<br />

JUST WHEN we<br />

thought things<br />

couldn’t get any<br />

more difficult for<br />

our underfunded<br />

Canterbury District<br />

Health Board they have been<br />

dealt a proverbial kick in the<br />

guts.<br />

A botch-up with the numbers<br />

in the National Government’s<br />

budget has resulted in an error<br />

in funding allocations nationally,<br />

meaning 14 district health boards<br />

were given too much money<br />

and would have to give up some<br />

of their funding to even out six<br />

DHBs that were short-changed.<br />

After initially being told how<br />

much money they’d receive, DHB<br />

leaders were then summoned to<br />

Wellington and told their Budget<br />

allocations will be changed.<br />

Canterbury is on the losing end<br />

of this maths and loses $2.69m in<br />

funding.<br />

To my mind, Minister of<br />

Health Jonathan Coleman has<br />

to front up and answer serious<br />

questions about how this gross<br />

error occurred. It’s fair to say Mr<br />

Coleman has egg on his face after<br />

a Budget that he’d rather forget.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re is no doubt that staff made<br />

an error but I am old-fashioned<br />

when it comes to these matters<br />

– the buck stops fair and square<br />

with the minister.<br />

While this is embarrassing for<br />

the minister, the bigger impact<br />

is that some DHBs will have to<br />

make sharper cuts than expected.<br />

This affects patients directly. It<br />

means if you are waiting for a hip<br />

or a knee consultation or surgery,<br />

the uncertainty will continue.<br />

Critically, it also means that there<br />

is no much-needed additional<br />

funding here in Canterbury for<br />

our mental health services which<br />

are at crisis point.<br />

This mess adds insult to injury<br />

after a Budget that offered nothing<br />

new on mental health, failed<br />

to fund primary care adequately<br />

and allowed the funding shortfall<br />

under this Government’s watch<br />

to stretch out to a cumulative<br />

$2.3 billion. It’s clear that due to<br />

his mismanagement of health<br />

funding, there will be real losers<br />

across the country. After nine<br />

years, New Zealanders deserve<br />

better. It’s time for a fresh approach.<br />

•Megan Woods is Labour’s<br />

Canterbury spokeswoman<br />

What’s being done<br />

about Canterbury’s<br />

water quality?<br />

Look a little deeper at the<br />

action being taken to improve<br />

our precious water.<br />

This year, there are new requirements on farmers<br />

to limit the effects of farming on water quality.<br />

<strong>The</strong> majority of farmers are already doing the<br />

right thing, but more needs to be done to truly<br />

improve our precious water.<br />

We are working with farmers so that they know<br />

exactly what they need to do. It will take time<br />

for these improvements to have an effect on our<br />

water quality and quantity, but we’re off to a<br />

good start.<br />

Peter Majendie<br />

Artist makes bid to find new home<br />

Peter Majendie is trying<br />

to find a permanent<br />

location for his 185<br />

Empty Chairs. Bridget<br />

Rutherford spoke to him<br />

about creating a place<br />

for people to remember<br />

their loved ones and his<br />

stand-up comedy career<br />

So Peter, I see you are looking<br />

for a new home for your<br />

185 Empty Chairs. How is that<br />

going?<br />

Well, at the moment on our<br />

website you can vote for where<br />

you’d like to see the 185 chairs<br />

move to, like the CTV building<br />

site, the Botanic Gardens or<br />

Latimer Square. Latimer Square<br />

seems to be the most favoured<br />

place. We’ve been told it’s not<br />

moving to the CTV site. So I’m<br />

talking to the city council to see<br />

if there is somewhere they can go<br />

and what the future is for it.<br />

How long have you been looking<br />

for a new site?<br />

Our proposal to make it<br />

permanent was with CERA a<br />

good two years ago, because<br />

where it is now is earmarked for<br />

the new stadium. We’re there<br />

POIGNANT: Artist Peter Majendie says he painted the first of the 185 Empty Chairs for a grieving<br />

friend because he just had no clue what to say.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

for as long as the church meets<br />

on that site. It’s always been a<br />

temporary site. When we set it<br />

up, it was going to be up for three<br />

weeks. We did it for the first<br />

anniversary of the February <strong>22</strong>,<br />

2011, earthquake.<br />

Why do you think they have<br />

remained for five years?<br />

When we put it up, I was pretty<br />

sure it would work. I think immediately<br />

it was pretty popular.<br />

It’s very open-ended and people<br />

could engage with it. Whenever<br />

we thought about taking it away,<br />

I’d get a lot of emails. As far as<br />

the chairs go, I can remember in<br />

the first few months meeting a<br />

young guy, he would have been<br />

about 12, and he’d bike to the<br />

chairs and he would sit there and<br />

chat to his mum. He needed a<br />

memorial then – not six years<br />

later. I think one of the things<br />

the chairs have done is transcended<br />

the earthquake.<br />

Where do the chairs come<br />

from?<br />

My closest friend lost a sonin-law<br />

in the earthquake, and<br />

I asked him if I could paint<br />

a chair. We bought chairs on<br />

Trade Me and a few places have<br />

donated chairs. Over the years,<br />

we’ve had working bees and<br />

people have brought chairs along<br />

to paint. I still get them from<br />

the Salvation Army and the<br />

EcoShop, I’m painting about 10<br />

at the moment. We’ve had very<br />

few thefts, the wheelchair was<br />

stolen, and we’ve had a little bit<br />

of damage through vandalism,<br />

but not much at all. It’s really the<br />

weather that breaks them down<br />

so we need to replace some.<br />

And speaking of the weather,<br />

I hear you have been chatting to<br />

Weta Workshop about making<br />

the chairs more permanent?<br />

We have cast one in aluminium<br />

to see how it would work. We<br />

went to Weta to get options of<br />

how we could make them more<br />

permanent, or make new ones.<br />

We could 3D print them.<br />

Thursday <strong>June</strong> <strong>22</strong> <strong>2017</strong> 23<br />

for his 185 Empty Chairs memorial<br />

Where did you take your<br />

inspiration from?<br />

<strong>The</strong> 1995 Oklahoma bombing<br />

memorial is made up of chairs. I<br />

do speak on Vincent van Gogh<br />

– he painted chairs depicting<br />

personality – I think that was the<br />

strongest influence. I know some<br />

people have said they don’t want<br />

a chair to represent their loved<br />

one but the empty chair speaks<br />

of the absence of the person.<br />

And you mentioned your<br />

friend’s son-in-law died in the<br />

quake, did you know anyone<br />

else?<br />

Not well. I’d done quite a bit of<br />

art around town and I had been<br />

interviewed by CTV a number of<br />

times, so I did know people who<br />

worked there.<br />

Did that make the 185 Empty<br />

Chairs more personal for you?<br />

It was, especially my friend’s<br />

son-in-law. It’s been a privilege,<br />

I’ve met some wonderful people<br />

with amazing stories. People<br />

who help maintain the chairs<br />

feel they are actually doing<br />

something, because they are<br />

all hand-painted. One guy<br />

suffered serious injuries in the<br />

earthquake and it took him two<br />

hours to paint the wheelchair,<br />

and I think he found it quite<br />

MOVING: Peter Majendie created an installation at Sumner<br />

beach to mark the 100th anniversary of the withdrawal of<br />

troops from Gallipoli.<br />

therapeutic. No-one who was<br />

in a wheelchair was killed, but I<br />

know three people did finish up<br />

in wheelchairs. <strong>The</strong>re were a few<br />

people who came along and it<br />

was their first time coming into<br />

town since the day of the quake.<br />

You must meet a lot of<br />

affected people there?<br />

Yes, because it’s so open-ended<br />

and an everyday object people<br />

can engage. Someone told me he<br />

remembered his son from the<br />

little baby carrier, through to<br />

the high chair, school chair, the<br />

swivel chair at work. And some<br />

people connect with just one<br />

chair.<br />

What other art work have you<br />

done in Christchurch?<br />

We used to do large-scale<br />

peace labyrinths in Latimer<br />

Square. <strong>The</strong>y were very interactive.<br />

We also wrapped the<br />

orange tree for the launch of the<br />

Canterbury Community Trust’s<br />

$25 million earthquake fund. It<br />

was on the corner of Manchester<br />

St and Oxford Tce. We used hundreds<br />

of metres of fabric for that.<br />

And can you tell me a bit<br />

about Sidedoor Arts Trust, and<br />

what it’s all about?<br />

Sidedoor has run for about 14<br />

years. It came from a contemplative<br />

space that my wife Joyce and<br />

I created for people going out the<br />

back door of church to help connection<br />

and reflection. As for the<br />

chairs, a friend of mine has done<br />

his masters thesis around community<br />

homelessness. He interviewed<br />

a lot of homeless people<br />

in Christchurch and they were<br />

telling him the chairs for them<br />

are a sacred place. <strong>The</strong>y would<br />

sit there and smoke and drink,<br />

and I have no problem with that,<br />

but they would never sleep there,<br />

it’s a set-apart space. In some<br />

sense, the Margaret Mahy Family<br />

Playground is a sacred space.<br />

It’s an absolute joy – I take my<br />

grandkids there. Those are the<br />

sort of things the city needs to<br />

give it some soul. That was one of<br />

the reasons we decided to push<br />

ahead with making the chairs<br />

permanent.<br />

On another note, I hear<br />

you’re also a bit of a stand-up<br />

comedian. Can you tell me<br />

about that?<br />

I did it on the tram and I’ve<br />

done stand-up in Auckland and<br />

overseas in the United States,<br />

United Kingdom and Australia.<br />

It revolves around the fact I’m<br />

deaf, my parents were deaf. I’ve<br />

had a couple of operations and<br />

have the most powerful hearing<br />

aids you can get and a pretty<br />

good phone. My parents went<br />

deaf in their 20s so I knew what<br />

it was like. I think in some ways<br />

that was quite influential on my<br />

art. We are so dependent on<br />

words, so through art I’m trying<br />

to say things visually.<br />

And what do you like to do in<br />

your spare time?<br />

I like my mountain biking.<br />

I’ve had some pretty spectacular<br />

crashes. And I have six grandkids<br />

who are a constant joy and<br />

I am quite involved with. Joyce<br />

and I are about to go with our<br />

youngest son, his wife and three<br />

kids to Paris and the UK.<br />

Sounds exciting, and did you<br />

grow up in Christchurch?<br />

I grew up in Brighton and<br />

I’ve always lived here. We’re in<br />

Heathcote now.<br />

sydney’s a foodies paradise!<br />

TRAVEL I 2<br />

Sydney needs little introduction. Chances<br />

are if you’ve visited Sydney a few times, you<br />

would have stuck mainly to the beaten track;<br />

shopping in the CBD, Bondi Junction and<br />

down Oxford Street; lunching in and around<br />

the harbour and at Wooloomooloo Wharf,<br />

maybe a surfing lesson on Bondi Beach or a<br />

day trip to Manly and the Northen beaches<br />

on the Ferry. While I’d happily spend every<br />

trip doing just this, there are unsurprisingly<br />

some pockets of amazingness to be found<br />

not too far away from these favourite haunts.<br />

A great way to venture in to some new<br />

Sydney neighbourhoods is to use the<br />

Merivale Group as a starting point. <strong>The</strong><br />

hospitality superweights, established by the<br />

Hemmes family has a growing portfolio of<br />

more than 65 restaurants, bars, pubs, hotels<br />

and function spaces that are all spectacularly<br />

unique. It appears that they have the<br />

hospitality midas touch with all their venues,<br />

opening to steller reviews for both food and<br />

ambience.<br />

On the eastern side of Sydney, Merivale’s<br />

Coogee Pavilion is somewhere you can easily<br />

spend a day. Complete with petanque, giant<br />

magnetic scrabble, ping pong and an in-house<br />

theatrette, it’s a venue that ticks the boxes<br />

for every age. A market style food court<br />

concept inhabits the ground level, offering<br />

oysters to wood-fire pizza. On the rooftop<br />

the four indoor and outdoor bars, have huge<br />

balconies that boast wraparound views of the<br />

Coogee shoreline.<br />

Coogee is really Bondis little unappreciated<br />

sister. You’ll find a swim at the pictureque<br />

Whylie’s or McIver’s Baths, one of the few<br />

remaining womens only ocean pools, located<br />

on the rocks next to Coogee Beach, is right<br />

up there with Bondi’s Icebergs pool. Coogee<br />

carries a less pretentious air than its Bondi<br />

neighbours and has the added bonus of being<br />

either the start or finish of the popular Bondi<br />

to Coogee coastal walk.<br />

Another infamous place many people visit<br />

in Sydney is Kings Cross. But step sideways<br />

a few metres and you’ll end up in Potts Point.<br />

Worlds apart in terms of sophistication and<br />

grandeur, here you’ll find the home to a<br />

growing number of Merivale’s restaurants.<br />

Behind a door bathed in pink neon on<br />

Victoria Street, you’ll find Ms G’s which is<br />

‘modern Asian’ and will be ‘unlike anything<br />

you’ve ever experienced before’. <strong>The</strong> graffiticovered<br />

walls, uber stylish lighting and jam jar<br />

decorated ceiling are hipster cool. <strong>The</strong> menu is<br />

exceptional too and mashes together the very<br />

best combination of Chinese to<br />

Vietnamamese, to Korean.<br />

While you’re in Potts Point if you’re<br />

interested in architecture, you may want to<br />

visit Elizabeth Bay House to appreciate the<br />

grand old architecture of yesteryear or visit<br />

Macleay St which has plenty of clothing<br />

boutiques. Potts Point is often referred to<br />

as the little France of Sydney, with beautiful<br />

tree-lined streets, art deco terrace houses and<br />

european styled cafes, you’re bound to spot<br />

plenty of expensive sports cars and lap dogs<br />

sitting pretty amongst the euro styled locals.<br />

You couldn’t mention Merivale without<br />

covering the Ivy complex in the CBD. Home<br />

to award-winning restaurants, Sydney’s only<br />

rooftop pool bar, numerous event spaces<br />

and leading fashion and lifestyle retailers, the<br />

Ivy ensures the perfect CBD outing starts in<br />

George street.<br />

While many of us won’t be wanting to don<br />

a bikini and head to the super glitzy pool club<br />

on the top floor, <strong>The</strong> Ivy’s Felix and Ash St.<br />

Cellar in comparison offer an oasis of relative<br />

maturity.<br />

Fred’s and Charlie’s Parkers, Merivale’s<br />

highly-anticipated Paddington venues, which<br />

opened towards the end of last year, are both<br />

venues worth visiting if you hit the Oxford<br />

Street shopping strip.<br />

31 kms north of the CBD on the<br />

stunning shores of Pittwater, another of Justin<br />

Hemme’s renovations, <strong>The</strong> Newport makes<br />

a great pitstop if you’re heading north on a<br />

day-trip to the stunning northern beaches of<br />

Avalon or Palm Beach.<br />

Boasting Australia’s largest outdoor waterfront<br />

beer garden, <strong>The</strong> Newport like all of the<br />

Merivale Groups ventures has multiple,<br />

eclectic, themed spaces to drink and dine in.<br />

With live music often playing and a ‘vintage<br />

gymnasium’ with badminton, exercise bikes<br />

that can charge mobile phones, ping pong<br />

tables, outdoor petanque and concrete table<br />

tennis courts, there’s no shortage of<br />

entertainment.<br />

Like the Coogee Pavilion, the Newport<br />

menu is based on a community market<br />

concept, where different food stalls feature<br />

everything from a grass-fed beef burger and<br />

fresh shucked oysters, to spit-roasted pork,<br />

fresh pastries and a pizzeria and salad bar too.<br />

As a word of warning, if you visit one of<br />

Merivale’s venues you’re sure to get hooked.<br />

And as you should always be prepared to pack<br />

an extra bag to fill with shopping on a trip to<br />

Sydney, once you’ve discovered the Merivale<br />

venus, also prepare to pack on a couple of kgs<br />

from sampling the incredible assortment of<br />

mouthwatering restaurants.


3 I LIFESTYLE<br />

art for everyone<br />

<strong>The</strong> Christchurch Art Show held it’s fourth consecutive show at <strong>The</strong> Events Centre, Wigram<br />

Air Force Museum of New Zealand in Christchurch from <strong>June</strong> 15 - 18.<br />

Described as a show with “art for everyone”, the Christchurch Art Show, over four days<br />

showcases works by New Zealand artists. At only $10 for entry in to the show it’s an<br />

inexpensive way to peruse artworks in a gallery meets tradeshow style setting. All artworks<br />

are for sale.<br />

A feature of this years event was the “biggest ever wall of art” measuring 21 metres long.<br />

<strong>The</strong> wall held a signature work of the top ten artists that the public voted they wanted to see<br />

return from the 2016 show. <strong>The</strong> <strong>2017</strong> top ten artists were;<br />

Joel Hart: Joel creates multi-dimensional, pop-culture inspired urban works, often<br />

incorporating women.<br />

Marie Kjestrup Adams: Marie uses bold brush strokes, line, colour and layering to create<br />

expressive, free flowing works capturing movement, flair and the excitement of every day life.<br />

Liz Turnbull: Liz’s works explore our landscape. She has a fascination with light, water and<br />

the outdoors and how our landscape’s mood can be changed by light alone.<br />

Odelle Morshuis: Recent pieces are paintings of figures framed with layers of engraved<br />

glass.<br />

Joe McMenamin: Joe’s flowing organic patterns that ripple through his works have won<br />

him a following throughout New Zealand.<br />

Jane Riley: Jane’s artworks depict the beauty she sees and interprets with tremendous<br />

energy, passion and flair, often incorporating textures of sand, gemstones, shells and other<br />

natural materials.<br />

Janyne Fletcher: Jayne is an Otago-based photographer who clearly knows the nuances of<br />

the region’s weather and land.<br />

Megan Huffadine: <strong>The</strong> objects and forms in her work are derived from the Central Otago<br />

locale. Seeds, remnants and discards are sketched from memory, scale is altered and then these<br />

are developed into new forms.<br />

Susan Hurrel Fieldes: Susan’s printmaking works are abstract and often focus on the<br />

solarplate, collagraph and drypoint methods.<br />

John Burns: John’s artwork is bold. Some have stories, some are crazy, gentle, mad, kind,<br />

thoughtful, different and thats a word I hear a lot about my art, and a word I like... to be<br />

different.<br />

If you haven’t been to the Art Show, you should definitely add it on to your 2018 ‘to-do’ list.<br />

christchurch gets a little high<br />

it’s like going through the cupboard in to narnia. enter the doors to the little high eatery and<br />

you’ll feel like you’re in another world (or city at the very least!)<br />

CUISINE I 4<br />

If you’re looking for a new breakfast, lunch or dinner spot, <strong>The</strong> Little High Eatery is it. <strong>The</strong><br />

newest addition to High Street is calling the old Mackenzie Willis building home. With an<br />

upmarket foodcourt/foodtruck concept, you can choose from eight different eateries; Bacon<br />

Brothers, A Mouse Called Bean, Eight Grains, Noodle Monk, Base Pizza, El Fogon Grill, Caribe<br />

Latin Kitchen and Sushi Soldier.<br />

Far from the standard mall-style foodcourt, the attention to detail at Little High is<br />

impeccable. Each of the eatery zones has it’s own distinctive decor, adding to the market feel.<br />

Caribe Latin Kitchen has a brightly tiled bar and eclectic mix of prints on the wall and Bacon<br />

Bros has the front of an old truck at the counter.<br />

<strong>The</strong> lighting is impressive with each eatery decked out with an ambience to match. Over<br />

at El Fogon the chunky rustic pendants are turned down low creating a very authentic Latin<br />

American grill feel, where in stark contrast over at Eight Grains the lights are up high,<br />

illuminating the minimilist Japanese kitchen.<br />

With over 40 craft beers from all around the world to choose from and sake, sangria and<br />

margaritas, you’ll be forgiven for popping back here time and time again to make your way<br />

through the drinks lists.<br />

<strong>The</strong> menus won’t disappoint either. Handed a buzzer upon ordering at each of the eatery<br />

counters, there are no rules as to how many diferent options your group samples. Many of the<br />

menu items are designed to be shared, making a perfect opportunity to sample a variety of the<br />

the mouthwatering dishes on offer.<br />

A spicy serving of Quesidillas at the Caribe Latin Kitchen washed down with a Dos Equis<br />

Lager was my pick. To be honest i’d be happy making this my go-to choice, was it not for the<br />

fact that evey plate that past my eyeline looked incredible. I’ve added the dumplings at Eight<br />

Grains and a bowl from Noodle Monk to my next visit wish-list, but I know that i’ll keep going<br />

back to make my way around the venue.<br />

For those still working in the CBD, a coffee from A Mouse Called Bean which used to be<br />

housed in the Re:<strong>Star</strong>t Mall and a breakfast burger from Bacon Brothers would be a great pick.<br />

It’s so good that i’d even suggest heading in for a mid-afternoon snack. Maybe opt for<br />

somethig slightly left-field with a Japanese green tea ice cream or churros.<br />

It’s proving to be sublimly popular so finding a seat on the weekend can be a gamble,<br />

but with long opening hours (from 7am-10pm Sunday-Wednesday and open until midnight<br />

Thursday-Saturday) you’re not restricted to head for just lunch or dinner. Being able to park in<br />

the Wilsons carpark right outside the front door adds to the appeal too.<br />

At this stage until the new venue buzz dies down a little I wouldn’t suggest turning up with a<br />

big group. It’s easier to jump on the end of one of the longer shared tables or bar leaners than<br />

secure a table or booth during peak feeding times.<br />

should be a balance of tangy, spicy (may need to add more jalapeno and garlic mix), and<br />

salty.<br />

6. To serve, place in serving bowl and sprinkle garnish with extra peas, sunflower seeds<br />

and coriander.<br />

7. Enjoy with corn chips!<br />

FALLS<br />

Ask your Doctor about Canterbury’s Falls Prevention Service, Steady as you go, exercise<br />

classes and green prescription exercise classes.<br />

FALLS are not a normal part of ageing and many falls can be prevented.<br />

FALLS are the most common injury in older people.<br />

Falls by older people are usually due to poor balance and weakened leg muscles.<br />

* Women are one and half times more likely to fall than men.<br />

* ½ of all people over 80 years fall each year & 1/3 aged over 65 years will fall.<br />

* Many falls and subsequent broken bones can be prevented.<br />

* Many of these broken bones have life changing and life threatening results.<br />

Ask your Doctor about Canterbury’s Falls Prevention Service, Steady as you go, exercise<br />

classes and green prescription exercise classes. <strong>The</strong>se are all designed to build up your muscle<br />

strength and improve your balance. Walking and all other exercise that you do on your feet is<br />

good for muscle strength. Half an hour at least three times a week is beneficial.<br />

If you are over 50 years and have broken a bone as a result of a bump or minor fall talk to<br />

your Doctor about osteoporosis or contact your local Osteoporosis Society for more<br />

information, Trish at trish.adams200@gmail.com<br />

<strong>The</strong> Osteoporosis Society of Canterbury Inc. have their AGM on Wednesday July 12th at the<br />

YMCA Hereford Street at 2-30pm. <strong>The</strong>re will be falls prevention specialists to give advice and<br />

help.<br />

what is important to you?<br />

It is interesting what people perceive as important beauty/appearance items when asked<br />

to name the three items they couldn’t do without if told they were going to a desert island<br />

indefinitely.<br />

A cross section of males and females ranging from 52 to 95 years old were asked the<br />

question.<br />

Oddly only one person asked if they would be there on their own. <strong>The</strong>ir replies follow:<br />

Elizabeth - 68<br />

Coconut oil - It can be used internally and externally, hair brush, nail scissors.<br />

LAW / BEAUTY I 6<br />

Francis - 73<br />

Sunglasses, hairbrush, nail file.<br />

Susie - 63<br />

Moisturiser with sunscreen, mouthwash and lip gloss (Chanel Exotique no 12)<br />

Jo - 75<br />

Magnifying mirror, tweezers and sunscreen.<br />

Go ask your friends.<br />

It can lead to an<br />

interesting<br />

discussion!<br />

JoAN - 95<br />

Dior foundation, Oil of Olay moisturiser and a ‘good’ lipstick.<br />

ANNA - 59 & SARA - 62<br />

Oddly two sisters Anna and Sara both chose identical items: moisturiser with sunscreen -<br />

particularly for the lips, smudgy charcoal eye pencil and mouth wash.<br />

Philip - 69<br />

A huge cake of soap, piksters for cleaning my teeth and an endless supply of mouth wash.<br />

Pene - 52<br />

Scissors, mirror, scrubbing brush.<br />

Mike - 66<br />

A toothbrush so my teeth aren’t caked in raw fish, moisturiser to keep sun and salted skin<br />

from going wrinkly and a comfy pillow so I get my beauty sleep.<br />

JOHN - 82<br />

<strong>The</strong> biggest, thickest supply of loo paper, Laphroaig mouth wash, (for those in the dark,<br />

this is actually single malt whiskey and a hairbrush.)<br />

CAPACITY<br />

WORDS FLEUR MCDONALD<br />

As lawyers, we are required to meet with<br />

our clients and take their instructions in<br />

order to help them complete the particular<br />

legal task(s) they are planning. Sometimes<br />

when we do this, we need to take a little<br />

extra time to consider our clients legal or<br />

mental capacity to make decisions.<br />

Mental or legal capacity is a client’s capacity<br />

to make a decision. Decision making requires<br />

that a client:<br />

• understands the decision they are<br />

having to make<br />

• can discuss with us the possible<br />

options available to them in a way that<br />

shows they appreciate the risk and or<br />

benefit of those options<br />

• understands the impact that a decision,<br />

or the lack of a decision, may have on<br />

them or their loved ones<br />

• is able to articulate and discuss all of<br />

the above with us.<br />

It is important to note that the level of<br />

capacity required isn’t the same in every<br />

situation. For example, to make a Will the<br />

test is whether the client knows they are<br />

making a Will and the effect of doing so,<br />

whether they understand the extent of<br />

the assets they are dealing with and finally,<br />

whether they comprehend the moral claims<br />

which they ought to give effect to.<br />

However, when giving instructions to<br />

complete Enduring Powers of Attorney the<br />

test is whether the client understands the<br />

consequences of granting a power of attorney<br />

and the nature and effect of the power they<br />

are giving. This is the test even in a situation<br />

where the client is no longer capable of<br />

managing their own affairs.<br />

Having these discussions with our clients<br />

is difficult. It can be very confronting, both<br />

for our clients and for us. In a worst case<br />

scenario, our clients can be very offended by<br />

us questioning their capacity. This is not our<br />

intention. Our intention is to ensure that<br />

the legal outcome our clients have set out to<br />

achieve, has the best possible opportunity to<br />

succeed.<br />

We are aware however that if there is a<br />

likelihood that our client’s decision might be<br />

challenged, one of the first questions that<br />

may be raised is whether our client had the<br />

capacity required to make the decision in the<br />

first place.<br />

<strong>The</strong> best way of mitigating this risk may be<br />

for our clients to undertake a capacity<br />

assessment prior to completing their<br />

legal work. It is best that the assessment be<br />

scheduled as close as possible to the<br />

appointment to complete the legal work<br />

they are contemplated. It is important for<br />

us to write to our client’s doctor to explain<br />

to them the background of the situation, the<br />

legal test that is at issue and to request a<br />

detailed report regarding our client’s capacity<br />

to make the decision in question.<br />

For the reasons discussed above, if you have<br />

concerns about your capacity or the<br />

capacity of a loved one, it is critical that you<br />

obtain advice from a team well versed in<br />

dealing with these matters. At Harmans we<br />

have a specialist seniors team to help you<br />

with any queries you may have. Contact Fleur<br />

McDonald on 352-<strong>22</strong>93 to arrange an<br />

appointment to discuss your situation.<br />

As we age the hair on our bodies becomes<br />

lighter and sparser, making it even more<br />

important to maintain our brows.<br />

A well-shaped brow gives a look of<br />

confidence and really balances the face and<br />

frames the eyes. It’s also said that eyebrows<br />

play the most important role in creating the<br />

facial symmetry that makes a person look<br />

attractive.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re have been many trends with<br />

eyebrow shapes and colour, but natural and<br />

full eyebrows will never go out of style.<br />

If you haven’t got a naturally full brow<br />

or you’ve had a long history of tweezering,<br />

there’s still hope. <strong>The</strong>re are a few products<br />

that actually help to repair damaged<br />

eyebrows or create an illusion of thicker<br />

brows and in recent years specialty eyebrow<br />

bars have popped up, offering expert advice<br />

and techniques.<br />

To get the low-down on what we should<br />

be doing with our brows, Kim Mchugh, Brow<br />

Artist and Founder of <strong>The</strong> Eyebrow Bar on<br />

Colombo Street gave us the answers;<br />

1> I’ve tweezed my eyebrows to<br />

death over the years, is there anything<br />

that can be done?<br />

Firstly (and most importantly), step away<br />

from the tweezers! A daunting concept but<br />

totally necessary to give yourself the best<br />

chance of rekindling the ‘Brow Love’.<br />

Secondly, book an appointment with me<br />

and I can recommend a plan to get your<br />

brows back on track.<br />

It’s advised to not remove any hairs for at<br />

least 4 - 8 weeks prior to your appointment,<br />

that way I can see what growth is coming<br />

back and which areas need TLC.<br />

A ‘Custom Colour Brow Tint’ can be a<br />

real savior. It can reveal a fuller, more defined<br />

brow literally in a matter of seconds in some<br />

cases. It’s also great for giving the brows more<br />

depth and helps to disguise the greys.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are some fantastic results-based,<br />

growth enhancing serums that are<br />

especially formulated to encourage the<br />

growth in patchy areas. Come and see me to<br />

have a chat as they’re not suitable for<br />

everyone... if the damage has been done<br />

and the follicle is dead, it won’t encourage<br />

any more growth but it may help to prevent<br />

future hair loss.<br />

If you’re not keen on a chemical based<br />

product then I also recommend trying<br />

Castor Oil or Organic Coconut oil. In my<br />

experience, applying this to the brow area<br />

can also help stimulate new growth and give a<br />

lovely glossy finish to the hairs.<br />

Time is also key - be patient. In my<br />

experience, it can take anywhere from 4<br />

months - 18 months for the completion of<br />

your new ‘Bangin’ Brows’. If you’ve tried all of<br />

the above but to no avail, then Microblading<br />

is for you.<br />

Be very careful when you choose your<br />

Microblading technician, it’s paramount that<br />

you do your research and always choose a<br />

qualified and experienced practitioner who<br />

has a solid background in brows. I can’t stress<br />

that point enough!<br />

2> Can you tell us what your eyebrow<br />

revolution treatment entails?<br />

<strong>The</strong> Eyebrow Revolution is my most<br />

popular treatment.<br />

It starts with a consultation - we have a<br />

chat about your concerns and see what we<br />

can do to achieve your brow goals.<br />

A brow tint and shape is then performed<br />

and brow cosmetics are applied to give them<br />

a flattering finish.<br />

3> Who do you consider to have<br />

perfect brows?<br />

I absolutely adore Cara Delevingne’s brows.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y’re naturally amazing and have that<br />

untouched look which is my favourite.<br />

4> What are we aiming for with our<br />

brows.....there seem to be a lot of full<br />

browed girls around at the moment?<br />

I’m a fan of natural looking brows. My<br />

advice to the readers is this; embrace your<br />

natural shape as natural never goes out of<br />

fashion.<br />

Also, invest in a specialised brow treatment,<br />

it’s well worth it.<br />

LIFESTYLE / FITNESS I 8<br />

On pointe<br />

want a ballerina style pyhsique like<br />

natalie portman in the black swan....then give<br />

barre fitness a twirl.<br />

Has anyone asked you to try barre<br />

fitness? While barre has origins in dance,<br />

the rhythmically challenged shouldn’t<br />

worry. Most barre classes follow the same<br />

basic structure. You’ll most likely start with<br />

a warm-up, then move in to some planking<br />

and push-ups, do a series of arm exercises<br />

(sometimes with hand weights), and then<br />

continue at the bar with a lower-body<br />

section to work your bigger muscles like the<br />

quads, glutes and calves. You’ll also put your<br />

core to action with a series of either bar or<br />

mat based exercises. A class will finish off<br />

with some relaxation and stretching.<br />

<strong>The</strong> isometric contractions that make up<br />

the bulk of a barre class occur when the<br />

muscle tenses without changing length.<br />

Isometric exercise is a great way to maintain<br />

muscle strength.<br />

If you’re wanting to sculpt a leaner longerlooking<br />

and more graceful physique aka<br />

Natalie Portman in Black Swan then here<br />

we breakdown the different types of Barre<br />

training for you.<br />

TYPES OF BARRE:<br />

BARRE3<br />

Ballet meets yoga and pilates<br />

Using a yoga mat, ball and ballet barre.<br />

PURE BARRE<br />

Similar to Barre3 but with a cardio kick.<br />

Ball, ballet barre and hand weights.<br />

BOOTY BARRE<br />

Created by celebrity fitness instructor<br />

Tracey Mallett.<br />

Ball, ballet barre and resistance bar.<br />

THE KEY BENEFITS ARE:<br />

• toned arms and back<br />

• sculpted thighs and lifted seat<br />

• strong, flat abdomen<br />

• firm elongated muscles<br />

• improvement in your coordination<br />

• increased flexibility and posture including<br />

improvement in your overall postural<br />

alignment<br />

• strength and endurance<br />

• increase in energy and body awareness<br />

Lyndal Woodham brought Bootybarre to New Zealand, back in 2013 and in 2015<br />

she had the honour of becoming the NZ Master Trainer for Bootybarre, enabling<br />

her to grow the brand in New Zealand. Created by celebrity trainer Tracey Mallett in<br />

2009, it’s now taught in 25 different countries. Lyndal has since set up the On Pointe<br />

Studio where she teaches classes for all ages and fitness levels.<br />

Barre fitness stems from the exercises ballet dancers use to keep fit and<br />

trim. Can you tell us how your bootybarre differs? What are the key health/<br />

mind benefits of attending your classes?<br />

Bootybarre is a fusion fitness of Pilates, Yoga and Dance, you don’t have to be an<br />

expert or have any previous experience. We use the barre for support and resistance<br />

and it helps with our balance. Its about coming and moving your body and creating<br />

long lean muscles. In our classes we focus on small muscles groups, creating awareness<br />

of these areas and how to engage and contract them efficiently to get the best benefit<br />

from the class. Its all done to fun upbeat music, boutique class sizes and in a<br />

comfortable inviting environment.<br />

For the over 50’s (and those who don’t lean towards being ballerina-like)<br />

is On Pointe still a good place to head? And what would be the best class to<br />

start with?<br />

Age is only a number and this workout is for anyone, both male and female. We have<br />

a beginner barre class on Saturday mornings 8am which is always a great place to start<br />

so you can get a feel for the class and the flow of it. From there you’ll go one of two<br />

way - realise you love our little cardio blasts or not! So we have Bootybarre Plus which<br />

incorporates cardio blasts to get the heart rate up or we have our flex & flow / Sculpt<br />

classes where we have therabands attached to the barre and we use these throughout,<br />

ditch the cardio and enjoy a nice long stretch at the end. You don’t have to have been a<br />

ballerina in a previous life to come and enjoy the class, we encourage you to take things<br />

as hard as you want, we give plenty of modifications and variations so each individual<br />

can take the workout to their desired level. Its not about comparing yourself to the the<br />

person next to you. Its about you getting the most of your own workout and walking<br />

out of the room feeling a little taller, toner and sore in all the right places.<br />

CAN WE let the bath do the running?<br />

Research published in the Journal of<br />

Temperature found that an hour-long soak in<br />

hot water produced similar anti-inflammatory<br />

and blood sugar responses as 60 minutes of<br />

moderate physical activity.<br />

“It seems that activities that increase heat<br />

shock proteins may help to improve blood<br />

sugar control and offer an alternative to<br />

exercise,” lead study author Steve Faulkner<br />

from Loughborough University wrote. “<strong>The</strong>se<br />

activities -such as soaking in a hot tub or<br />

taking a sauna - may have health benefits for<br />

people who are unable to exercise regularly.”<br />

It’s critical to point out a few limitations of<br />

the study. For starters, the experiment only<br />

monitored men, so it’s difficult to say if the<br />

same effect would happen in women. It also<br />

only included 14 volunteers, which is an<br />

extremely small sample size. More research<br />

needs to be conducted before scientists<br />

can come to any official conclusion. And, of<br />

course, you should still continue to exercise<br />

regularly.<br />

That being said, the study does offer some<br />

more promising insight into the healing<br />

effects of hot water. <strong>The</strong> science of hot baths<br />

is seemingly only delivering good news!


9 I HEALTH / FITNESS<br />

Canterbury has some stunning mountain bike<br />

tracks with terrain varying from super flat<br />

to moderatly hilly. From the leisurly Bottle<br />

Lake Forest to the stunnigly scenic Lees Valley,<br />

we’ve rounded up a few favourites;<br />

McLeans Island Track<br />

It is a well built, fast, smooth track that everybody<br />

will enjoy.<br />

10.5KM MAIN LOOP - 30 MINUTES<br />

2KM RIVER LOOP - 8 MINUTES<br />

Add an extra 2km’s with this little detour out<br />

towards the river.<br />

5KM CORINGA LOOP - 15 MINUTES<br />

Head under the bridge for an extra 5km’s<br />

extending the ride into a figure of 8.<br />

<strong>The</strong> track is made to be ridden in one<br />

direction so make sure you’re heading the<br />

right way!<br />

Bottle Lake Forest<br />

Bottle Lake is a great place to find varied and<br />

fun mountain biking. You can spend a couple of<br />

hours going around with the kids, or go hard<br />

for a 45 minute workout. At the halfway point<br />

you can also reward yourself with a coffee or<br />

ice cream.<br />

BOTTLE LAKE FOREST - 45 MINUTES - 2<br />

HOURS<br />

Crocodile Track<br />

Through the cattle stop, the single track winds<br />

down over farm land and through a small<br />

plantaion before coming out at the Halswell<br />

Quarry. Apart from a small up hill section, it is<br />

all fast down hill, single track.<br />

HALSWELL QUARRY TO THE START OF<br />

THE CROCODILE - 15 - 20 MINUTES<br />

Why should you get back on your bike<br />

as you get older?<br />

1. It’s easy on the joints.<br />

When you sit on a bike, you put your weight<br />

on a pair of bones in the pelvis called the<br />

ischial tuberosities, unlike walking, when you<br />

put your weight on your legs.<br />

2. It’s a great aerobic workout.<br />

Aerobic exercise also triggers the release of<br />

endorphins, the body’s feel-good chemicals—<br />

which may make you feel young at heart.<br />

3. You’ll build up muscle.<br />

As you get older, you lose muscle mass.<br />

Keeping your body fit starts with simply riding<br />

your bike often, While your buttocks and legs<br />

are the obvious muscles being put to work,<br />

you’ll also use abdominal muscles to balance<br />

and stay upright and to a smaller degree your<br />

arms by holding on.<br />

4. Pedaling builds bone.<br />

Resistance activities, such as pushing pedals,<br />

pull on the muscles, and then the muscles pull<br />

on the bone, which increases bone density.<br />

5. It’s great for your wellbeing.<br />

Even half an hour of daily exercise has been<br />

observed to improve people’s subjective<br />

mood and well-being!<br />

Christchurch Heart Institute and the Heart Foundation<br />

First to Work with Cardiovascular Charity Partnership<br />

Ryman residents and staff raise $330,000 for heart research<br />

<strong>The</strong> Christchurch Heart Institute is<br />

working alongside the Heart Foundation as<br />

part of an innovative approach to<br />

cardiovascular disease (CVD) research,<br />

following a significant donation of $330,000<br />

from Ryman Healthcare received on the 31<br />

May <strong>2017</strong>.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 2016-17 charity partnership between<br />

Ryman Healthcare and the Heart Foundation,<br />

which has funded the Heart Foundation<br />

Clinical Fellowship, will support a clinical<br />

research study, looking into the scope and<br />

make-up of cardiovascular disease in residents<br />

of Ryman Healthcare facilities.<br />

Associate Professor, Chris Pemberton, of<br />

the Christchurch Heart Institute, based at the<br />

University of Otago, Christchurch, is behind<br />

the idea to run the study which will provide<br />

a clearer picture about the CVD risk in New<br />

Zealand’s retirement healthcare sector.<br />

“It is exciting to be working with the Heart<br />

Foundation, who have informed residents of<br />

Ryman Healthcare facilities about the study,<br />

laying the foundation for the project to<br />

proceed. Ryman residents who volunteer<br />

to take part in the study, will benefit from<br />

increased awareness of their overall health and<br />

any cardiovascular risk. <strong>The</strong> information we<br />

gather at the Christchurch villages and<br />

others around the country will be used to<br />

raise the standard of cardiovascular care in<br />

New Zealand,” he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> study will begin at Ryman retirement<br />

villages in Christchurch, and gradually roll-out<br />

across the country, which is something<br />

Pemberton is looking forward to.<br />

“We want to get going in <strong>2017</strong>, firstly<br />

putting systems in place, with a view to starting<br />

the first of the studies later this year.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> Christchurch Heart Institute, a<br />

University of Otago Research Centre, is<br />

renowned globally for their contribution to<br />

CVD research. In particular, the discoveries<br />

of blood hormones associated with heart<br />

disease which have led to specific blood tests<br />

for heart issues, now being used routinely in<br />

clinics all around the world.<br />

“This project is aimed at taking what we<br />

know in a hospital setting and applying that<br />

knowledge in the primary health sector.<br />

Leading to better management of<br />

cardiovascular disease, before hospital<br />

admission becomes necessary.”<br />

Heart Foundation Chief Executive, Tony<br />

Duncan, is delighted to have been part of the<br />

Ryman Healthcare charity partnership for<br />

2016-17. He believes Ryman’s donation will<br />

undoubtedly support many people in the aged<br />

care sector who are impacted by heart<br />

disease, which is New Zealand’s biggest killer.<br />

“Given the high incidences of heart disease<br />

in the aged care sector, this will make a<br />

significant contribution to the management of<br />

heart disease among the aged.”<br />

Ryman Managing Director Simon Challies<br />

said heart health had been a popular cause.<br />

Over the past 12 months the Ryman family<br />

has been busy with knitting, barbecues, art<br />

shows, raffles and head shaves to raise as<br />

‘right size’ not necessarily ‘downsize’<br />

do not downsize your dreams, but do carefully consider getting a puppy or purchasing a big<br />

old house in your later years!<br />

As we get older, it’s no surprise that we find ourselves “downsizing” in many different ways.<br />

One of which might be getting a newer or smaller house, a more managable garden or a smaller<br />

dog. It’s a very common phenomenon as we enter the golden years.<br />

But it might not be so much about ‘downsizing’ the square metres of your house or the kgs<br />

of your dog that matter to you most, but more the location of the property relative to family<br />

and ammenties and the exercise requirements of your breed of dog. Over 50 it’s all about<br />

finding the right size for you.<br />

<strong>The</strong> trend toward pint-size pooches has been well documented since 2000 but has<br />

accelerated in recent years, in part because of an aging population of baby boomers. For many<br />

people who have had labradors their whole live, they might consider a miniture labradoodle<br />

which is a lot smaller and doesn’t require quite so much exercise, yet is similar in temprament.<br />

A dog’s energy levels and temperament can be just as important as it’s size. Do you have the<br />

energy to deal with a puppy who wants to destroy every shoe in sight? Adopting a pet from the<br />

SPCA is a great way to find a new companion without having to put yourself through the puppy<br />

faze. When you go in to the SPCA to meet their adoptees, they take the time to find out a little<br />

about you, your lifestyle, your property and your experience with animals. <strong>The</strong>y’ll also offer<br />

advice, to help ensure you find the perfect companion to suit your needs.<br />

It’s also worth considering that many multi-units and assisted-living communities have size<br />

restrictions, which make it difficult to bring larger breeds with you if you need or want to move.<br />

Going hand-in-hand with what animals you should consider when you hit your later years<br />

come decisions about property.<br />

Laurie Sutton of Ray White says, “In my experience, ‘mature’ downsizers generally choose<br />

location based on being close to family, especially if there are grandkids, friends, work or<br />

lifestyle. Some may like the facilities of some of the new sub divisions like Pegasus or<br />

Clearwater, but I think the other factors take priority. <strong>The</strong> newer areas do offer the advantages<br />

of all the mod cons, plus good insulation and double glazing, not to mention EC safety, all of<br />

which would be desirable, particularly for an older person.”<br />

New homes being built today are often built smarter than the sprawling homes of the past.<br />

<strong>The</strong> better design that usually comes with 21st century living means smaller homes can feel just<br />

as spacious. By moving to a smaller place, the obvious benefits such as lower monthly<br />

electricity bills, contents insurance and house maintenance are reduced. <strong>The</strong>re’s also a benifit in<br />

moving to an area that has a sense of community, where you can get to know the neighbours,<br />

rather than isolation and privacy.<br />

In terms of desirable features, Laurie would suggest looking for “single story, with a low<br />

maintenance garden, proximity to amenities, including healthcare and proximity to public<br />

transport as key. Safe neighbourhoods, security, and good parking, ideally an internal access<br />

EXERCISE THE MIND<br />

garage are all important. Schools zones, which can add value to some suburbs would be less<br />

important, but might be factored in when considering resale value. Many of the smaller homes<br />

today are on cross leases or unit titles, which a lot of buyers shun, but because of that they are<br />

often more affordable, and shouldn’t necessarily be overlooked. As long as the solicitor goes<br />

over it, I personally don’t see the downside and I own a cross leased home myself.”<br />

Future proofing should also be a consideration when looking for a new home. Will the<br />

owner be likely to need to make the home handicap friendly in the future? Likewise, health<br />

and safety should be considered. Are there any tripping hazards or other potential risks? “We<br />

sold a small home recently that was subject to approval from the buyers physio that ramps and<br />

handrails could be adequately installed, for instance.”<br />

While it’s important not to downsize your dreams in terms of house or pet, it’s important<br />

to future proof your selections and start thinking about what’s going to work for you in a few<br />

years time.<br />

Single story, with a low maintenance garden, proximity<br />

to amenities, including healthcare and proximity to<br />

public transport as key.<br />

coffee table books to add to your collection<br />

what do your coffee table books say about you?<br />

Les Dîners De Gala by Salvador Dalí<br />

Available from Book Depository<br />

In the Company of Women<br />

Available from Collected<br />

Let’s face it: the coffee table book is not just a book; it’s an item designed to showcase a<br />

little snapshot in to the owners interests. It’s always intriguing to see what kind of books<br />

people put out on their coffee table. Are they arty books or travel based? Do they look like<br />

they’ve been well read or are they just there for show? Coffee table books are now often<br />

used by interior stylists to instantly transform a surface by adding some pops of colour and<br />

a little sophistication to your home.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 1970s cookbook that surrealist painter Salvador Dalí created with his wife Gala is<br />

unsurprisingly bonkers, featuring 136 recipes with dreamlike illustrations by the artist, and<br />

including a chapter specifically dedicated to aphrodisiacs.<br />

In the Company of Women features profiles of a broad cross-section of more than 100<br />

inspiring, creative, successful women – from Rookie editor Tavi Gevinson to <strong>The</strong>lma Golden,<br />

director and chief curator of New York’s <strong>The</strong> Studio Museum.<br />

Another slightly odd, definitely intriguing choice, Women in Trees is edited by a woman<br />

named Jochen Raiss, who has been collecting amateur photographs of women in trees from<br />

flea markets for around a quarter of a century. Weird and wonderful, this strangely touching<br />

book has captured moments of pure happiness enjoyed by unknown women from the<br />

1920s to the 1950s.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Sharks coffee book would be one to add to the table for pure shock factor, the large<br />

scale images taken by Michael Muller literally jump off the pages!<br />

Available from Amazon<br />

tears we cannot stop: A SERMON TO WHITE AMERICA<br />

In his 2016 New York Times op-ed piece<br />

“Death in Black and White,” Michael Eric<br />

Dyson moved a nation. Now he continues<br />

to share his views in Tears We Cannot Stop.<br />

Dyson makes it clear to readers that he wants<br />

more than guilt, he wants action and change.<br />

He wants readers to wake up to “what it<br />

means to be black in America”, and actually do<br />

something about racism.<br />

Like any book dealing with deep issues such<br />

as race, this book is sure to ruffle some<br />

feathers, make more than a few wince and<br />

really anger others. Nothing is sugar coated.<br />

At just <strong>22</strong>8 pages, it’s anything but a quick<br />

read. Yes, there’s controversy in Dyson’s views<br />

but it will also open a lot of eyes.<br />

“One of the most frank and searing discussions on race ... a deeply serious, urgent book, which<br />

should take its place in the tradition of Baldwin’s <strong>The</strong> Fire Next Time and King’s Why We Can’t Wait.”<br />

-<strong>The</strong> New York Times Book Review<br />

“Readers will find searing moments in Tears We Cannot Stop, when Dyson’s words proves unforgettable...But<br />

more than education, Dyson wants a reckoning.” —<strong>The</strong> Washington Post<br />

“Here’s a sermon that’s as fierce as it is lucid. It shook me up, but in a good way. This is how it works<br />

if you’re black in America, this is what happens, and this is how it feels. If you’re black, you’ll feel a<br />

spark of recognition in every paragraph. If you’re white, Dyson tells you what you need to know—<br />

what this white man needed to know, at least. This is a major achievement. I read it and said amen.”<br />

—Stephen King<br />

“Impassioned.” —Library Journal<br />

AN EXCERPT: On the invention of<br />

Whiteness:<br />

“Beloved, let me start by telling you an ugly<br />

secret: there is no such thing as white people.<br />

And yet so many of them, so many of you,<br />

exist. Please hear me out. I know you’re flesh<br />

and blood. I know that you use language and<br />

forks and knives. I’m not talking about your<br />

bodies or your garages or your grocery stores.<br />

I’m talking about the politics of whiteness. I’m<br />

talking about an identity that exists apart from<br />

the skin you’re born in. I’m talking about a<br />

meaning of race that supersedes the features<br />

you inherit when you come out of the womb.<br />

You don’t get whiteness from your genes. It is<br />

a social inheritance that is passed on to you as<br />

a member of a particular group.<br />

And it’s killing us, and, quiet as it’s kept, it’s<br />

killing you too.<br />

Race has no meaning outside of the cultures<br />

we live in and the worlds we fashion out of its<br />

force and energy. Whiteness is an advantage<br />

and privilege because you have made it so, not<br />

because the universe demands it.<br />

So I want to tell you right off the bat that<br />

whiteness is made up, and that white history<br />

disguised as American history is a fantasy, as<br />

much a fantasy as white superiority and white<br />

purity. Those are all myths. <strong>The</strong>y’re intellectual<br />

rubbish, cultural garbage. <strong>The</strong> quicker you<br />

accept that, the better off you’ll be, and so will<br />

the rest of us.<br />

My friends, I know reading this frightens<br />

many of you. It may even anger you. Please<br />

bear with me. Until you make whiteness give<br />

up its secrets none of us will get very far.<br />

Whiteness has privilege and power connected<br />

to it, no matter how poor you are. Of course<br />

the paradox is that even though whiteness is<br />

not real it is still true. I mean true as a force<br />

to be reckoned with. It is true because it has<br />

the power to make us believe it is real and to<br />

punish those who doubt its magic.<br />

Whiteness is slick and endlessly inventive. It<br />

is most effective when it makes itself invisible,<br />

when it appears neutral, human, American.”<br />

It’s not easy making a small car look stylish.<br />

However, Suzuki is the master at it, take their<br />

recent models – Celerio, Baleno and just<br />

recently, the Ignis, they are all trendy, funky<br />

models which relate to a large cross-section<br />

of car buyers.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Ignis is brand-spanking new and is<br />

dubbed by Suzuki as a small sport utility<br />

vehicle. That sums it up well, it has the looks<br />

of a SUV, but at just 3700mm it is squat and<br />

will appeal to those who like easy entry and<br />

exit along with a tallish driving position and,<br />

of course, a budget price. <strong>The</strong> newcomer<br />

starts at just $18,990, automatic transmission<br />

will add $1510, while the Limited variant, as<br />

tested, sits at $<strong>22</strong>,500, although if you want<br />

two-tone paint that’s an additional $490.<br />

Interestingly, the Ignis in Limited form is just<br />

a four-seater, there are only two seat-belts<br />

in the rear and the configuration lends itself<br />

SMALL & SPORTY<br />

WORDS ROSS KIDDIE<br />

more to adaptable load carrying options.<br />

However, there are Isofix child seat tethers<br />

for those who have young ones in tow. If you<br />

want to seat three across the rear, the entrylevel<br />

GLX is a five-seater, albeit it would be<br />

tight widthwise for adults.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Ignis is also a car which lends itself to<br />

sporty appeal. Sure, it’s not a rocket ship, but<br />

with the way it can be dressed and optioned it<br />

has specification and features which will make<br />

it stand out even more amongst others.<br />

Under the bonnet is a 1.2-litre, fourcylinder<br />

engine and it is engineered for<br />

economy along with respectable power outputs.<br />

Suzuki rate it with a 66kW and 120Nm<br />

outputs, even though torque peaks tallish in<br />

the rev band (4400rpm), the engine works<br />

freely thanks to the matching of it to a<br />

continuously variable automatic transmission.<br />

According to Suzuki’s advertising material,<br />

the Ignis will return a 4.9-litre per 100km<br />

(57mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average.<br />

In my opinion that would be quite achievable,<br />

during evaluation time the trip computer was<br />

constantly showing 6.9l/100km (41mpg) with<br />

a 5l/100km (56mpg) figure cruising quietly at<br />

100km/h, the engine turning over slowly at just<br />

2000rpm in the tallest part of the gearing.<br />

It has taken me a long time to warm to CVT<br />

transmissions, but today’s units are so normal,<br />

the Ignis works through the gearing much like<br />

a traditional automatic. <strong>The</strong>re’s even a sport<br />

mode which will hasten engine revolutions<br />

should the driver decide a little bit of extra<br />

oomph is needed, say for a highway overtake.<br />

In terms of performance, that can be<br />

achieved in around 7.5sec, while a standstill to<br />

100km/h time of 10.9sec is not to be sneezed<br />

at.<br />

<strong>The</strong> engine is a willing worker and charms<br />

with its quiet operating manner and lively<br />

response – that’s another bonus of CVT, the<br />

engine works unimpeded through the<br />

transmission.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Ignis sits on a new platform and,<br />

although it isn’t sophisticated, it has been<br />

designed as a weight-saving structure along<br />

with a suspension set-up that will allow for<br />

controlled balance when the corners arrive.<br />

Even though rear wheel freedom is<br />

hampered a little by a torsion beam tube<br />

axle, there is just enough movement so that<br />

mid-corner bumps and ruts don’t upset body<br />

balance nor directional stability.<br />

MOTORING I 12<br />

At almost 1.5m, the Ignis is quite tall, and<br />

body movement over softish spring and<br />

damper settings is noticeable. However,<br />

steerage is unaffected and directional accuracy<br />

is quite sharp. I’d like to have a little more<br />

steering feel through the wheel, but in this<br />

modern age of electric power steering systems<br />

most mainstream cars get a light, as opposed<br />

to a firm feel.<br />

Providing the grip are high quality 16in<br />

Bridgestone tyres, even though their footprint<br />

is small at 175/60, there is an underlying feeling<br />

of grip and control, and for that reason the<br />

Ignis feels quite athletic, which considering its<br />

simplicity underneath, is commendable.<br />

In Limited form the Ignis is comprehensively<br />

equipped. All models represent value for price,<br />

but there are a few goodies in the Limited<br />

which you may not expect in a car for this<br />

price such as satellite navigation, Apple Car Play<br />

and Android Auto, keyless entry and ignition,<br />

cruise control with speed limiter, and digitally<br />

controlled air conditioning, just to name some<br />

of the major items. It also has a high safety<br />

specification.<br />

Even though it is marketed as a sport utility<br />

vehicle, it must be remembered the Ignis is<br />

two-wheel-drive (front) only and it isn’t<br />

engineered for life off-road.<br />

However, if you are after a car which is just<br />

a little out of the ordinary with interesting<br />

internal shapes and colours, and an exterior<br />

look which is standalone, then the Ignis is the<br />

car for you.

ADVICE with<br />

$80<br />

PRIZE<br />

PACK!<br />

QUESTION<br />

In March last year I planted Escallonia Apple Blossom shrubs which are growing<br />

nicely into a compact and pretty hedge. Recently we’ve been advised that due to the<br />

quakes, our sewer pipes will have to be dug up and replaced. This means either<br />

having the shrubs trampled or removing them. Can I uproot the shrubs and place them elsewhere, perhaps in<br />

tubs while the repairs are carried out, and then replant them? <strong>The</strong>y are just gaining strength and coming away<br />

nicely and I’m reluctant to disturb their growth.<br />

Today’s winning question came from Sue Barker. Congratulations!<br />

Escallonia can be<br />

ANSWER transplanted quite easily<br />

compared to many other<br />

shrubs. We would suggest cutting back any new<br />

growth before transplanting, and carrying out the<br />

process during the winter months. <strong>The</strong> plants can<br />

either be placed in large containers or into your<br />

veggie garden temporarily. Ensure plants are<br />

kept moist throughout the process but do not<br />

over water as this can rot young roots. With<br />

this species, it is better to be a little drier than<br />

over wet.<br />

When you are ready to replant them back into their<br />

original spot, add plenty of Daltons Compost<br />

to give them the best start and add a layer of<br />

mulch on top. After replanting, allow time for the<br />

plants to settle (up to two weeks) before applying<br />

a side dressing of Daltons Premium Tree &<br />

Shrub Fertiliser in spring.<br />

For more gardening advice, read<br />

our How to Grow Fruit Trees guide at<br />

Roses provide lush fl owers, delicious scents and add charm to any<br />

garden. <strong>June</strong> and July are the best months to plant, relocate and prune<br />

roses (once dormant). When choosing the perfect plant for your garden<br />

or pots, choose from; Old Fashioned, Hybrid Tea, Floribunda, Shrub or<br />

meat.<br />

Fancy watching the daily<br />

Tuna Auction? You’ll need<br />

to get here at the ungodly<br />

hour of 3am, to score a visitor’s<br />

slot in the tuna auction<br />

room. <strong>The</strong> dealing is all<br />

done by 6.30am.<br />

Humming with postauction<br />

activity, later in<br />

the morning, a veritable<br />

army of workers hauled<br />

freshly sold fish on forklifts,<br />

hand-carts and “turret<br />

trucks”, like speed-freak<br />

bees in a choreographed<br />

hive. I gazed in awe of hulking<br />

blue-fin tuna the size of<br />

refrigerators.<br />

Half of Tokyo seemed to<br />

be out sampling and shopping.<br />

It’s a riveting introduction<br />

to the core ingredients<br />

in Japanese cuisine<br />

and the ebullient vendors<br />

happily hand-out free tastings.<br />

I grazed on seaweed,<br />

benito shavings, dumplings<br />

in soybean flour, smoked<br />

fish and kimchee squid.<br />

Best of all, Tsukiji’s quintessential<br />

sushi restaurants<br />

offer the freshest raw fish<br />

fix possible. My tour group<br />

headed for Sushi Daiwa,<br />

situated next to Sushi Dai,<br />

which are the two famous<br />

sushi houses. <strong>The</strong>ir pilgrimage-like<br />

pulling power<br />

means you may well find<br />

yourself queuing outside for<br />

several hours. We lucked in,<br />

with only a 15min wait.<br />

Although they staff are<br />

too polite to say so, you are<br />

expected to eat and run<br />

at these sushi counters.<br />

Alongside the delectable<br />

slivers of tuna draped over<br />

a bed of rice, we noshed on<br />

congee reel, sea urchin and<br />

that celebrated Japanese<br />

delight, tamagoyaki, egg<br />

omelette roll.<br />

If you’re sizing up one big<br />

blow-out in Tokyo, the Park<br />

Hyatt is the pinnacle of<br />

high-end hospitality.<br />

<strong>The</strong> city’s most decorated<br />

hotel is the Park Hyatt<br />

which graces the upperlevels<br />

of a Kenzo Tangedesigned<br />

high-rise, lording<br />

over west Shinjuku.<br />

Considered the father<br />

of modern Japanese<br />

architecture, he was the<br />

master planner for the<br />

rebuilding of Hiroshima<br />

after World War 2. With<br />

the hotel floors beginning<br />

on the 41st level with the<br />

glass-walled reception,<br />

you can be assured your<br />

accommodation will be<br />

dressed with a sweeping<br />

panorama of the neondrenched,<br />

sky-scrapered<br />

expanse of Tokyo.<br />

Service is ultra-attentive<br />

without being starchy.<br />

Whether you’re staying<br />

in-house or not, the dining<br />

destinations are unmissable.<br />

BUSY: Eat fresh raw fish at Sushi Daiwa.<br />

HIGH-END: Experience panoramic<br />

views from a room at the Park Hyatt.<br />

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

Clever comedy but no side-splitter<br />

<strong>The</strong> Pickle King<br />

Produced by Indian Ink<br />

Written by Jacob Rajan and<br />

Justin Lewis<br />

Reviewed by Georgia<br />

O’Connor-Harding<br />

YOU COULD be easily fooled<br />

for thinking <strong>The</strong> Pickle King is a<br />

bit of a tragedy, theming around<br />

a girl who believes she is cursed<br />

and everyone she loves dies.<br />

But with a captivating set, vivacious<br />

characters and just a touch<br />

of neat choreography, Indian<br />

Ink’s original show brought a<br />

touch of warmth into the city’s<br />

cold wintry night.<br />

<strong>The</strong> show staged at the Isaac<br />

<strong>The</strong>atre Royal last week, is part of<br />

the company’s 20th-anniversary<br />

national tour.<br />

Covering the themes of love,<br />

death and adversity immigrants<br />

face when moving to New Zealand,<br />

<strong>The</strong> Pickle King is about a<br />

blind receptionist who falls in<br />

love with another employee at a<br />

run-down hotel in Wellington.<br />

At the same time the blind<br />

receptionist, who believes she is<br />

cursed, falls in love with another<br />

employee, a mysterious guest<br />

checks into the hotel who she<br />

believes is the Grim Reaper.<br />

<strong>The</strong> show was a highly-anticipated<br />

comedy, having won an<br />

LIGHT AND DARKNESS: Andrew Ford as George Reaper, Kalyani Nagarajan as Sasha and<br />

Vanessa Kumar as Jeena in Indian Ink’s original production <strong>The</strong> Pickle King. ​<br />

award at the Edinburgh Festival<br />

Fringe and Chapman Tripp<br />

<strong>The</strong>atre Awards.<br />

It is easy to see why it is<br />

award-winning in the way it is<br />

professionally executed, but the<br />

storyline was not life-changing<br />

and it didn’t make me howl with<br />

laughter like I thought it would.<br />

It was lovely the show’s original<br />

performance 15 years ago had<br />

been adapted to feature a love<br />

story around two women rather<br />

than a man and woman.<br />

<strong>The</strong> same-sex love story<br />

between the leading characters<br />

Sasha (Kalyani Nagarajan) and<br />

Jeena (Vanessa Kumar) was extremely<br />

natural, and was a credit<br />

to how far New Zealanders have<br />

come to accepting gay relationships.<br />

With the company always<br />

featuring performers of Indian<br />

descent in the show, I loved the<br />

way the setting was designedthe<br />

walls were covered in<br />

brightly coloured Indian-inspired<br />

paintings creating a mystique<br />

atmosphere. But you were soon<br />

reminded the show was actually<br />

set in Wellington, as every time<br />

a door or window opened gusty<br />

sound effects and the odd flying<br />

prop would blast across the stage.<br />

A non-speaking pianist is the<br />

cherry-on-top to the hotel-esque<br />

atmosphere but some of the music<br />

played although beautiful, was<br />

slightly depressing.<br />

But bright costumes with a<br />

broad spectrum of masks ranging<br />

from covering the actor’s full<br />

face to just partially made for a<br />

visual treat balancing joy with<br />

darkness.<br />

Andrew Ford mastered his<br />

role of the scary-death-inducing<br />

George Reaper, his voice was<br />

particularly creepy and one could<br />

not help but watch with thrilling<br />

fear. But, to be honest, I didn’t<br />

get why his character had such a<br />

fascination with pickles, which<br />

the entire show is supposedly<br />

based around. <strong>The</strong> pickles didn’t<br />

seem to have any relevance to the<br />

overall storyline.<br />

But there is a bit of a twist to<br />

the end of the story that makes<br />

the death-like George Reaper not<br />

what he seems.<br />

You will have to catch up with<br />

the show to find out.<br />

Flanagan comes back from injury for World University Games<br />

MIDDLE DISTANCE runner<br />

Rosa Flanagan has qualified<br />

for the 5000m at the World<br />

University Games in Taiwan in<br />

August.<br />

Flanagan, 21, achieved the<br />

qualifying time for the games<br />

at the Portland Track Festival<br />

last week and is now the only<br />

Canterbury athlete in the<br />

13-strong New Zealand team.<br />

Qualifying for the event has<br />

been one of Flanagan’s major<br />

goals this year after a bad run<br />

of injuries.<br />

Last year, she suffered a stress<br />

fracture in her tibia, which<br />

meant she had to resort to aqua<br />

jogging, swimming, biking<br />

and cross training while she<br />

recovered.<br />

She then suffered labral<br />

tears in both her hips, which<br />

resulted in her missing the<br />

majority of the New Zealand<br />

and Australian track seasons,<br />

making it tough to qualify for<br />

major events.<br />

She has spent the last two<br />

months in Santa Monica,<br />

United States, training and<br />

competing in a number of<br />

1500m, 3000m steeplechase,<br />

and 5000m track races.<br />

She has previously won the<br />

New Zealand 3000m and<br />

3000m steeplechase titles and<br />

represented New Zealand at<br />

the world championships<br />

in 2015. After the World<br />

University Games she hopes to<br />

represent New Zealand at the<br />

2018 Commonwealth Games<br />

and 2020 Olympic Games.<br />

ADVICE FROM TOPAI-AVEAI<br />

Last year’s UC Championship most<br />

valuable player Cruz Topai-Aveai returned<br />

to Shirley Boys’ High on Tuesday to pass<br />

on words of wisdom to the school’s junior<br />

rugby players. Topai-Aveai led Shirley<br />

BHS to consecutive UC Championship<br />

grand-final appearances in 2015 and<br />

2016 before moving to Sydney to join the<br />

South Sydney Rabbitohs. After a handful<br />

of games for the South Sydney under-20<br />

side he was offered a first grade contract<br />

with the Cronulla Sharks. He will return<br />

to Sydney later this week and is expected<br />

to return from injury for the Sharks<br />

under-20 side next month.<br />

CBHS TO HOST NELSON<br />

Christchurch Boys’ High School will host<br />

Nelson College in a top of the table UC<br />

Championship clash on Saturday. Both<br />

Christchurch Boys’ and Nelson have just<br />

one defeat to their name in this campaign.<br />

<strong>The</strong> home side come into the game on<br />

the back of a nail-biting 25-23 final<br />

minute win over St Andrew’s College.<br />

Christchurch Boys’ trailed St Andrew’s<br />

by five points with just two minutes<br />

remaining. Rico Syme was the hero,<br />

coming off the bench to make his first XV<br />

debut with 20min remaining and scoring<br />

a breakaway try in the dying stages, before<br />

Alex Harford’s kick sealed the win.<br />

DEVILS FACE THUNDER<br />

Canterbury Red Devils will<br />

be hoping home ice can help<br />

turn their fortunes around<br />

in this year’s New Zealand<br />

Ice Hockey League. <strong>The</strong> Red<br />

Devils, last year’s finalists,<br />

are currently at the bottom of<br />

the table after six games and<br />

only one win to their name.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y will host the Dunedin<br />

Thunder in two games this<br />

weekend, with the first on<br />

Saturday and another on<br />

Sunday. <strong>The</strong> Thunder also<br />

have only one win this season.<br />

However, they defeated the<br />

Red Devils 6-3 and 5-4 in two<br />

pre-season games.<br />

Falck tests out European clay<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

PROMISING YOUNG tennis<br />

talent Reece Falck is spending<br />

the next eight weeks developing<br />

his game on the clay courts of<br />

Europe.<br />

Falck, 15, is currently in<br />

Amsterdam as part of Tennis<br />

New Zealand’s targeted athlete<br />

programme.<br />

He will compete in two<br />

grade four junior International<br />

Tennis Federation events in the<br />

Netherlands, a grade two event<br />

in Germany, and another event<br />

in Fiji on his way home.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Shirley Boys’ High<br />

School student is coached by<br />

his father Andrew, who is head<br />

coach at the Burwood Park<br />

club.<br />

Andrew believes the eight<br />

weeks of clay court play will<br />

benefit his son’s game.<br />

“Playing on clay is a great<br />

way for young players to<br />

develop their game and it’s<br />

a surface we don’t have easy<br />

access to here,” said Andrew.<br />

Falck is the only Canterbury<br />

tennis player in the targeted<br />

athlete programme.<br />

He won the 14 and under<br />

national title earlier this year<br />

and represented New Zealand<br />

at the junior Davis Cup in<br />

March.<br />

Two other Canterbury<br />

juniors will also have brief<br />

spells in Europe.<br />

National 16 and under<br />

champion Dylan Heap will<br />

head to Amsterdam for three<br />

weeks of training and also play<br />

thanks to his<br />

inclusion in<br />

Warriors name Foran for Bulldogs clash<br />

WARRIORS COACH Stephen<br />

Kearney will give five-eighth<br />

Kieran Foran until the last<br />

minute to prove his fitness ahead<br />

of tomorrow’s game against the<br />

Bulldogs at Mt Smart Stadium.<br />

Foran hurt his quad muscle in<br />

the side’s win over the Titans 11<br />

days ago and is showing signs<br />

of improvement. <strong>The</strong> extra rest<br />

thanks to last weekend’s bye has<br />

helped him have a chance of being<br />

fit to face the side he will play<br />

for in 2018.<br />

Kearney has named the Kiwis<br />

international in the No 6 jumper<br />

in a side that has a familiar look<br />

to it.<br />

<strong>The</strong> one glaring omission is<br />

centre Solomone Kata, who is<br />

unavailable for the game due to<br />

the death of his brother back in<br />

Tonga.<br />

“Sol has had a tragic event<br />

Latest Christchurch news at www.<br />

.kiwi<br />

happen – his brother has passed<br />

away in Tonga,” Kearney told<br />

Radio Sport.<br />

“He will be flying out late<br />

tonight to attend his brother’s<br />

funeral,” Kearney said.<br />

“He was only a young guy and<br />

it was a tragic event – the club’s<br />

best wishes and thoughts are<br />

with Sol and his family.”<br />

Rookie Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad<br />

comes onto the wing with<br />

David Fusitua moving into the<br />

centres to replace Kata.<br />

Kearney refused the temptation<br />

to include the club’s all-time<br />

leading try-scorer Manu Vatuvei,<br />

who is working his way back<br />

from injury. Vatuvei has been<br />

included on an extended bench.<br />

Also named on an extended<br />

bench is prop James Gavet, who<br />

missed the game against the Titans<br />

with a hamstring strain, and<br />

Thursday <strong>June</strong> <strong>22</strong> <strong>2017</strong><br />

Ata Hingano, who came on to replace<br />

Foran when the five-eighth<br />

got injured.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Warriors have confirmed<br />

they will not be bringing in<br />

a replacement for the nowdeparted<br />

assistant coach Steve<br />

McNamara, who this week<br />

took up the vacant head<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 />

Outstanding fuel<br />

economy in Outlander<br />

• By Ross Kiddie<br />

WHEN Mitsubishi<br />

launched its popular<br />

Outlander sport utility<br />

vehicle in hybrid form, it<br />

was almost deemed revolutionary.<br />

That was in 2014, and<br />

since then the PHEV (plugin<br />

electric vehicle) has sold<br />

well in New Zealand –<br />

globally too for that matter<br />

– and is about to become<br />

even more appealing for it<br />

has just had a fairly hefty<br />

makeover.<br />

<strong>The</strong> concept, shape and<br />

ease of use hasn’t changed<br />

one bit, but the new<br />

Outlander PHEV is fitted<br />

out with a lot of new<br />

kit, most of it is electronic<br />

thereby enhancing the<br />

infotainment and communication<br />

systems, along<br />

with the inclusion of an<br />

ultra fast charge mechanism,<br />

higher priority for<br />

electric operation-only and<br />

the inclusion of advanced<br />

safety protocols.<br />

Column space doesn’t<br />

allow comprehensive detailing<br />

of the new features but<br />

I can say the Outlander in<br />

this form is engineered with<br />

a greater emphasis towards<br />

propulsion through the<br />

electric motors.<br />

For that matter, the new<br />

fast charge connection will<br />

fit well with a comprehensive<br />

project nationwide to<br />

install fast charge stations.<br />

Of course, the PHEV can<br />

also be charged through a<br />

household supply using a<br />

separate connection.<br />

However, there’s more to<br />

PHEV than just plugging<br />

in, charging and then driving<br />

off, the hybrid system<br />

is true hybrid. Under the<br />

bonnet sits a four-cylinder,<br />

2-litre engine which is<br />

rated at 88kW. It’s there to<br />

charge the batteries when<br />

they run low, as well as<br />

providing drive if there is<br />

no charge available. On the<br />

subject of drive, the PHEV<br />

is true to the Outlander<br />

concept, it gets four-wheeldrive<br />

courtesy of a second<br />

electric motor at the rear.<br />

Amidst the complexity<br />

of the hybrid system the<br />

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER: Plug-in hybrid.<br />

PHEV is capable of returning<br />

some amazing fuel<br />

usage statistics through<br />

the varying drive modes,<br />

although electric drive is<br />

prioritised.<br />

At best possible usage<br />

Mitsubishi rate the PHEV<br />

at an amazing 1.7-litres per<br />

100km (166mpg). That,<br />

of course, can only be<br />

achieved under certain circumstances,<br />

but on a daily<br />

commute it can’t be ruled<br />

out.<br />

• Price – Mitsubishi<br />

Outlander PHEV,<br />

$67,990<br />

• Dimensions –<br />

Length, 4695mm;<br />

width, 1800mm;<br />

height, 1710mm<br />

• Configuration<br />

– Four-cylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

1998cc, 88kW,<br />

189Nm, continuously<br />

variable automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 10sec<br />

• Fuel usage –<br />

1.7l/100km<br />

An overnight charge (6.5<br />

hours) will cost around $2<br />

depending on your service<br />

provider and it is good for<br />

a 54km journey.<br />

Fast charge rates at a pay<br />

station will cost, on current<br />

rates, 25c/minute plus<br />

25c/kWh. A 20min time<br />

frame should be expected<br />

to charge from zero to 80<br />

per cent.<br />

Even though the<br />

Outlander PHEV is a<br />

complicated car and takes<br />

some understanding, buyers<br />

needn’t be put off by its<br />

complexity. If you just get<br />

POWER:<br />

Plug in and<br />

charge<br />

up for an<br />

electric<br />

drive of<br />

54km.<br />

in and drive it, it quickly<br />

becomes familiar and<br />

drives little differently to<br />

the standard vehicle it is<br />

based on.<br />

Also, if you are a technophile<br />

there are a multitude<br />

of information displays to<br />

keep you happy, they indicate<br />

the varying modes that<br />

the vehicle is utilising at<br />

any given time.<br />

Even though I didn’t take<br />

the PHEV off-road – only<br />

for the sake I didn’t want to<br />

get it dirty thanks to a wet<br />

Queen’s Birthday weekend<br />

making off-road conditions<br />

muddy – you can drive the<br />

PHEV with the mindset it is<br />

a useful off-the-seal traveller<br />

with suspension capable<br />

of absorbing a bit of rough<br />

stuff and ground clearance<br />

which allows travel over<br />

undulating ground.<br />

<strong>The</strong> PHEV also has composure<br />

on the highway, it<br />

travels very quietly – no<br />

surprise there – and it<br />

steers and handles like an<br />

SUV should. It feels quite<br />

sprightly given the torque<br />

generation of electric<br />

power returning a 10sec<br />

time to make 100km/h<br />

from a standstill.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re’s been a common<br />

misconception that you<br />

have to drive hybrids long<br />

distances to recapture the<br />

cost of purchase.<br />

That’s certainly not the<br />

case with the Outlander<br />

PHEV. It comes priced<br />

realistically from $60,990.<br />

<strong>The</strong> evaluation car was<br />

VRX-specced which adds<br />

$7000 and you get all the<br />

Mitsubishi high-grade kit<br />

– leather trim, heated front<br />

seats, paddle gear shifters,<br />

sat nav, Siri voice recognition<br />

and a multitude of<br />

other items. It’s fair to say<br />

the VRX sits on the outer<br />

periphery of the luxury car<br />

market.<br />

If you think that longevity<br />

is a worry, take into<br />

account that the hybrid/<br />

electric componentry is<br />

covered for an eight-year<br />

period (or 160,000km) and<br />

the engine/driveline is covered<br />

for 10 years. Peace of<br />

mind really.<br />

REAA - Disclosure rules<br />

when selling a home<br />

Real estate advertisements are designed to make<br />

every property look like a dream buy.<br />

That’s why they gloss over the<br />

negative aspects and linger on the good<br />

points, wanting you to be drawn in by<br />

the sun-drenched location rather than<br />

be put off by lack of garaging. It’s no<br />

crime to gloss over a property’s quirks,<br />

but lying by omission or design about<br />

more serious matters is not allowed. If<br />

you do this when selling your property<br />

you may be at risk of being sued by the<br />

purchaser.<br />

When you’re ready to sell your<br />

property it’s a good idea to get legal<br />

advice about your obligations before<br />

you sign an agency agreement. Most<br />

of these agreements, which set out the<br />

terms and conditions of your contract<br />

with the real estate agent, require you<br />

to confirm that you are unaware of any<br />

undisclosed defects<br />

in the property and<br />

that you haven’t<br />

withheld any<br />

information about it.<br />

As a seller, you must<br />

also confirm that<br />

your property has all<br />

the necessary consents<br />

and code compliance<br />

certificates for any<br />

building work. Any outstanding consents,<br />

including ones that involve any works at a<br />

neighbour’s property, should be disclosed<br />

to the agent.<br />

This is important for several reasons.<br />

Licensed real estate agents have<br />

clear obligations when it comes to<br />

disclosure. <strong>The</strong>y must not mislead a<br />

seller or a potential buyer, or withhold<br />

any information. While it’s not up<br />

to the agent to uncover any hidden<br />

defects in a property, they must tell any<br />

prospective buyers what they know.<br />

Under the Real Estate Agents Act<br />

2008, if licensed real estate agents<br />

suspect that a property may have a<br />

defect then they are obliged to ask<br />

the seller about it, or advise potential<br />

buyers of any risks. For example, if a<br />

property is next door to a proposed<br />

new development, or if it’s in an area<br />

that’s been subject to flooding, the agent<br />

must tell prospective buyers rather than<br />

turning a blind eye.<br />

If your property may be prone to<br />

weathertightness issues thanks to its<br />

age or cladding, then the agent may<br />

have to disclose this potential risk to<br />

prospective buyers. If it doesn’t have<br />

any weathertightness problems it may<br />

be worth getting this confirmed in an<br />

expert report by a qualified building<br />

inspector who has professional<br />

indemnity insurance, understands<br />

the strict legal requirements of their<br />

role and carries out their work in<br />

accordance with the New Zealand<br />

Property Inspection Standard. This will<br />

help make the sale process as efficient<br />

as possible.<br />

If you know there are issues<br />

with the property, whether<br />

it’s something small like a<br />

garage door not working<br />

properly, or a bigger deal<br />

like an unconsented deck, it’s best to<br />

discuss them with the agent you are<br />

working with. <strong>The</strong>y can help you decide<br />

how to manage the problem, whether<br />

that means fixing it, or disclosing it to<br />

potential buyers. However, a licensed<br />

real estate agent must not disclose any<br />

problems with your property to buyers<br />

without getting your consent first. If a<br />

seller doesn’t agree on a disclosure, the<br />

agent is required to stop working for<br />

them rather than disclose any defects<br />

without consent.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se rules offer more protection to<br />

buyers than the traditional attitude of<br />

‘caveat emptor’ (buyer beware), which<br />

assumed that the seller would always<br />

know more than the buyer and any sale<br />

was at the buyer’s risk. However, buyers<br />

should always do their own research<br />

about a property before signing a sale<br />

and purchase agreement. Buyers should<br />

also ask the agent about anything they<br />

are concerned about, no matter how<br />

trivial it may seem. It’s far better to get<br />

an answer upfront than find out when<br />

it’s too late.<br />
