DISAPPOINTED: Animal-lover Maddie Collins, with her pony, Trig, and mother, Sarah Manson Collins, has been left feeling

shattered after a bogus $1.5m donation pledge, which would have paid for the kidney treatment she needs.

Cruel blow to sick teenager

after bogus $1.5m pledge

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE FAMILY of Maddie

Collins is devastated a

$1.5 million pledge that could

save the teenager’s life appears

to be bogus.

A middle-aged woman told

the family she would donate

the money from a $42 million

inheritance, enough to pay for

Maddie’s treatment for kidney

failure.

The woman visited the family’s

home to discuss the donation

and continually phones and

Facebook messages them.

But Maddie’s mother Sarah

Manson Collins now believes

the offer is false.

It has distressed the family

considerably.

“It’s that utter sense of false

hope. When we met her we

thought all our stresses and

worries were gone,” Mrs

Manson Collins told The Star.

“We thought we’ll get the

transplant, and by next year

Maddie will be fighting fit and

able to get on with life,” she said.

Maddie, 13, has kidney failure

with potentially life-threatening

complications. Her family has

been involved in a high profile

fundraising campaign to get her

a kidney transplant and follow

up treatment in the United

States.

They visited the Baltimore

hospital where the operation

will take place last month and

were told the cost had jumped

from $350,000 to more than

$700,000.

About $170,000 has so far

been raised for the St Margaret’s

College year 9 student.

The family was approached by

the woman via Facebook early

last month who asked to meet

in person at their West Melton

home to give them a cheque.

The woman spent an hour at

their home but didn’t have the

cheque, saying she needed to

organise it with the bank.

Since then the woman has

made many more promises to

pay, which haven’t eventuated.

Arrest

in serial

arson

case

• By Andrew King

A MAN in his 30s has been

arrested for a spate of arsons that

struck fear into residents in the

Burnside and Ilam areas.

Police charged the man late

yesterday with seven counts of

arson relating to wheelie bin fires

dating back to May.

He had been apprehended by

a police patrol at the weekend

after a wheelie bin was allegedly

set alight near the intersection

of Memorial Ave and Greers Rd,

and charged with one count of

arson.

Detectives have been making

further inquiries, which led to

yesterday’s charges.

He is scheduled to appear in

the district court today.

He will also face charges

relating to the Misuse of Drugs

Act.

Detective Senior Sergeant Mark

Worner said it was possible more

charges will be laid.

More than 10 wheelie bins were

set on fire, with some that were

close to houses causing damage

to the dwellings.

EDITOR’S

DESK

The Star

News....................................3-20

LIFE HAS a habit of serving

up lots of surprises, good ones

at times, but unfortunately bad

ones too.

Sarah Manson Collins and

her family are used to dealing

with the bad news. Their

daughter Maddie, 13, has a rare

kidney condition and it will

cost more than $700,000 to sort

out.

There have been a number

of high profile fundraising

activities and, so far, about

$170,000 is in the kitty.

But $700k is a Mt Everest

they will struggle to climb.

When a woman called them

last month after hearing of

Maddie’s plight and offered

$1.5 million out of a huge

inheritance, they thought good

luck at last.

As we reveal on page 1 today,

the woman visited the family

home, but failed to bring the

cheque she had promised.

She gave an excuse so not all

was lost. But those excuses have

been almost daily, and now the

family has given up hope.

That’s a cruel blow.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the Government Life Building opened

in Cathedral Sq. It was the city’s first “high rise glass box” but

was demolished following the earthquakes. On July 19, 1880,

Lincoln College opened, which was the first agricultural college

in the Southern Hemisphere. On the same date in 1988, Jock Orr,

nicknamed ‘The Birdman’ after befriending birds in Cathedral Sq,

died. Canterbury defeated North Otago 88-0 in a record Ranfurly

Shield match score at Lancaster Park. On July 23, 1851, Pioneer

William Deans was among 28 lost in the wreck of the Maria in

Cook Strait. John Godley had tried to deprive the Deans and Hay

families of their farms because he wanted only Anglicans to own

land in the new settlement. The Deans’ brothers sold sheep to

pay the legal costs of fighting Godley’s high-handed action, and

William Deans was travelling to Sydney to buy replacement stock.

Former policeman on cannabis charge

• By Andrew King

A FORMER police officer and

his son have been charged with

cultivation of cannabis.

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A JUNIOR female rugby coach

has been stood down after she

allegedly verbally and physically

abused a young player and

grabbed him by the collar

during a match.

West Melton under-14.5s

coach Amanda Tomlinson

has been sidelined while the

Canterbury Rugby Football

Union investigates the

matter.

The incident happened

during her team’s match against

Lincoln under-14.5s on July 8.

A complaint was laid against

Tomlinson by the Lincoln

Rugby Club.

Speaking to The Star

yesterday, Tomlinson said she

grabbed the Lincoln player by

his collar after he kicked a player

from her team in the mouth

during the match.

“I didn’t physically assault

him, I didn’t. I grabbed him

by the collar of his shirt so he

would look me in the eye,” she

said.

The West Melton player

needed dental surgery, she said.

“His teeth were facing his

tonsils, basically. That doesn’t

happen in a game of rugby,” she

said.

Tomlinson regretted what

happened, but said she had

to intervene before the boy’s

“behaviour escalates”.

She said she talked with the

boy again after the match and

made peace with him.

“We’ve talked, we’ve hugged

each other,” she said.

Tomlinson said she was upset

a complaint had been laid.

“I spend so much of my

time with these young teams,

Craig Paul Richardson, 51,

and Joel Tobias Richardson, 24,

will appear in the district court

on July 27.

Their arrests came after police

two hours on a Tuesday or a

Thursday and two or three

hours on a Saturday, and for

no reward. So it just hurts,” she

said.

A decision on the initial

CRFU investigation is expected

early next week. It will then be

decided if a formal hearing is

required.

Ellesmere Rugby Sub Union

raided a New Brighton property

earlier this month and allegedly

found about 50 plants of varying

maturity and a further 32 which

had been recently harvested.

president Stuart Boon, who initially

received the complaint before

sending it on to the CRFU,

could not discuss details while

the investigation was under way.

No complaints had been

laid about the behaviour of

the player, but that would also

be looked at as part of the

investigation.

Lincoln Rugby Club junior

Craig Richardson was a police

officer in Christchurch in the

1980s and 90s.

Court documents listed his

son’s occupation as a chef.

Junior coach stood down

STOOD DOWN: The West Melton under-14.5 team, which is coached by Amanda Tomlinson

(inset), before the match in which the incident happened.

advisory board manager Mike

Kingston said the boy who had

been grabbed by Tomlinson was

not injured.

He would not comment on

Tomlinson saying the Lincoln

player had kicked a West Melton

opponent in the face.

West Melton Rugby Football

Club president Anthony Calder

refused to comment.

In Brief

VEHICLE BREAK-INS

Twelve vehicles were broken into

with loose coins and electronics

stolen earlier this week. Police

said seven vehicles were broken

into in Bryndwr and Fendalton on

Monday night and Tuesday morning,

and five in Waltham. Many

were parked in driveways. Senior

Sergeant Vaughn Lapslie said while

police were focusing on vehicle

crime, owners still needed to ensure

they did not leave valuables in

their vehicles.

FREEDOM CAMPING REPORT

A report on whether further

changes should be made to the

Freedom Camping Bylaw will be

presented to city councillors in

September. City council head of

strategic policy Helen Beaumont

said once the report has been

received, it would decide whether

to make further changes to the

bylaw, or retain the current rules.

The city council was forced to

amend the rules in December

after the city was inundated

with freedom campers, resulting

in overcrowding, unsanitary

conditions and complaints.

GREEN CENTRAL CANDIDATE

The Green Party has selected

lawyer Peter Richardson as its

Christchurch Central candidate.

The Mairehau resident, who is

a partner at Linwood Law, will

run against National MP Nicky

Wagner and lawyer Duncan

Webb, who is standing for Labour.

Mr Richardson said he is deeply

committed to protecting the city’s

water, environment and families.

The general election will be held on

September 23.

Cruel blow to sick teenager

after bogus $1.5m pledge

•From page 1

The latest was yesterday

morning when the woman said

on Facebook Messenger she had

arranged the bank transfer on

Monday, but could not check it

as she said she was on holiday in

Dunedin.

In the message she told Mrs

Manson Collins: “A transfer did

go out but not too sure where.

“Sorry about this mucking

around it would be stressful time

for you all. Not just Maddie but

the whole family.”

The constant hope of the

donation was cruel.

“That could mean my

daughter’s life,” said Mrs Manson

Collins.

She said the woman seemed

genuine when she visited the

house. She was aged in her 50s.

She was completely bewildered

about why the woman would do

that to them, or what she was trying

to achieve.

The family are looking to get

a kidney transplant at the John

Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore,

as there is more chance of getting

a donated kidney, and the treatment

offered there would make

it more likely Maddie’s body

would accept it, even if it was not

a perfect match. Maddie’s father,

Adam Collins, donated one of his

kidneys to her in 2012, but her

body rejected it.

This year Maddie was told the

daily dialysis treatment she is on

has put so much strain on her

heart, she was at risk of a heart

attack. That made the need for a

kidney transplant more urgent.

Attempts by The Star to contact

the woman, whom we have

decided not to name, have been

futile.

But a family member tracked

down said she had been known to

have “told some whoppers” in the

past. He was unaware of the $42

million inheritance.

Seeing double: Facebook

reacts to a Todd lookalike

• By Gordon Findlater and

Andrew King

LOOK FAMILIAR? According

to social media comments,

Crusaders flanker Matt Todd

could be the man police are

looking to speak to about a car

theft in Timaru.

But it’s obviously not.

Canterbury Police posted the

picture of the Matt Todd lookalike

on its Facebook page last

week and since then a number

of people have commented

about the uncanny resemblance

to the Crusader.

“Unless Matt Todd has been

stealing cars, I would suggest

it is not him. He can probably

afford his own cars,” said

Inspector Dave Gaskin.

The image on the left is

surveillance footage taken from

a Z Energy Station in Ashburton

at 5am on July 12.

The stolen Nissan Skyline was

seen heading north and was

involved in a petrol drive-off at

about 5am from the station.

The suspect’s choice of attire

is perhaps a nod to his doppelganger’s

somewhat shock omission

from the All Blacks squad

DOPPELGANGER: When Canterbury Police posted the image

on the left to Facebook, the public immediately highlighted

the suspect’s resemblance to Matt Todd.

Red light runners in the frame

• By Bridget Rutherford

CAMERAS and video

technology are being

investigated to accurately count

the number of red light runners

in the city.

The city council has hired a

consultancy firm to look into

ways to measure how bad the

problem is.

It would then use that

information to decide how to

combat it.

In March, The Star reported

the city council was looking at

altering the amber traffic signal

by up to 1sec, and the “all-red”

phase by between 0.5sec-1sec to

curb the problem.

But Christchurch Transport

Operations Centre manager

Ryan Cooney said more

accurate data on red light

runners was needed before any

trials took place.

He said they had considered

measuring red light running

using the underground traffic

signal detection loops, doing

manual counts, or with CCTV

technology.

Due to cost, accuracy and

small sample sizes, they had discounted

using manual counts or

signal loops, he said.

PROBLEM: The worst intersection for red light running last

year was the corner of Blenheim Rd and Mandeville St.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

“We are now looking into use

of video technology using either

existing or new CCTV cameras

along with video analytic software

to count the number of red

light runners across the city.”

Mr Cooney said it was yet to

be decided how long it would

take to measure red light

running, or when.

The goal was to “accurately

count” not enforce, he said.

“Once we have a means to

confidently count the number

of red light runners across the

city, we will move into trialling

solutions to improve safety at

intersections.”

A red light running count

carried out on one day last year

using the data from the underground

detection loops showed

at the worst 13 intersections,

6580 vehicles ran red lights.

That increased from 3974 in

2014 and 4960 in 2015.

The worst intersection last

year was the corner of Blenheim

Rd and Mandeville St.

There are currently no red

light cameras in the city, Mr

Cooney said.

BY THE NUMBERS

The 10 worst intersections

for red light runners last

• 656 – Blenheim Rd/

Leairne Dow said police had

There is a focus on safety

people safe on the roads and

police has provided their advice

on these issues.”

Traffic signals

fail 10,000

times in Chch

• By Ashleigh Monk

TRAFFIC SIGNALS across the city

have failed nearly 10,000 times in the

past year.

Data released under the Local

Government Information and Meetings

Act showed signals had not functioned

properly 9812 times, due to either a

power failure or controller fault.

The signals at the intersection

of Brougham St, Garlands Rd and

Opawa Rd failed the most in the last

year – 26 times.

That was followed by the

Barbadoes and Salisbury Sts

intersection with 23, and the corner

of Barbadoes and Hereford Sts,

which failed 22 times.

Signals at the Brougham,

Burlington and Gasson Sts

intersection failed 14 times, while at

Hornby’s Chalmers St, Goulding Ave

and Main South Rd junction, they

broke down 13 times.

Curletts Rd and Main South Rd

sat at 12, Avonhead, Middlepark

and Yaldhurst Rds was 11, while

the Carmen St, Main South Rd and

Shands Rd junction was nine.

The city council said the highest

fault count was due to power failure

relating to Orion network issues.

Progress on ‘dirty 30’

• By Bridget Rutherford

THEY’RE DIRTY and derelict

– and now there’s no longer 30

of them.

Progress on the city’s “dirty

30” list has been made, with

eight buildings under “active

improvement”.

In May, the city council came

up with a three-step approach

to deal with derelict buildings,

and put together a list of those

hampering the central city’s

regeneration.

It included 30 buildings, plus

the adjoined Duncan’s Buildings

from 129-167 High St.

Since then, the former Trinity

Congregational Church and

Shands Emporium have been

removed because they were being

actively restored.

Eight of the buildings on

the list are now actively being

worked on, and the city council

has had “positive dialogue” with

owners of another eight of the

buildings, who have given their

commitment to action.

The other 19 buildings,

including the Christ Church

Cathedral, remained problem

sites.

City councillor Jamie Gough

said they were happy with the

PROGRESS: The former Work and Income New Zealand

building on High St (above) and Victoria St’s former Spagalimis

building (right) are both now under “active improvement”.

progress, but it was just the

start.

He said the next step was

to expand the approach to

include derelict residential

buildings between the

four avenues to get more

people moving back into

the central city.

Eventually they would tackle

derelict buildings in the suburbs,

he said.

The new list shows those

under active improvement

Jamie Gough

included the former

Scorpio Books building

on Hereford St, former

Work and Income building

on High St, Lichfield St’s

Lincoln House, the Public

Trust Building, the old

Spagalimis on Victoria St,

and buildings on High St and

Armagh St.

There had been positive

dialogue or commitment to

action about the former IRD

building, two of the Sol Square

buildings, Peterborough

Apartments, Victoria Mansions,

some of the Duncan’s Buildings,

a partially empty site on High St

and Harley Chambers.

It was announced last week

Harley Chambers, on the

corner of Worcester Blvd and

Cambridge Tce, would be

replaced by a six-star hotel.

The 19 buildings that

remained problem sites

included the former PWC

building on Armagh St, the

Old Post Office in Cathedral

Sq, the city council’s Our City

building, some of High St’s

Duncan’s Buildings and the

former 2 Fat Indians building

on Manchester St.

Cr Gough said while some

building owners had been

helpful, others had made no

attempt to fix their sites.

“We’ve given them a kick but

now we need to put steel caps on.”

It provided a place to watch the

game, and had entertainment and

food vendors.

Mr Attwood said between

He said the technical aspect,

such as screens, Sky, sound and

power cost $58,532, while entertainment,

such as the DJ, bands,

face-painting and giveaways was

$6350.

The fence wrap was $5626,

safety and comfort measures were

$34,945, while other costs such

Park history

board

too costly

• By Bridget Rutherford

A PLAN to install an information

board at Little Hagley Park is in

limbo after the discovery it would

cost nearly $5000 for Ngai Tahu

to provide the content.

In 2015, the Fendalton-

Waimairi Community Board

asked city council staff to look at

the cost of an information panel,

to record the history of the park

and neighbouring Carlton Mill

Bridge.

But in March, city council

staff said it would cost $4960 for

Ngai Tahu’s consultancy firm,

Matapopore, to confirm the content,

design and images with the

runanga, and another $2000 to

build and install.

Matapopore general manager

Debbie Tikao said the $4960

figure included the cost of hiring

a Maori designer.

“It wasn’t just providing the

words, it was sourcing images and

getting approvals and providing

some Maori design work as well.”

Board chairman David Cartwright

said the board was still

keen to do it.

“It just needs a little more work

and a few more conversations.”

New safety barriers after serious

But they

won’t be

finished until

• By Sarla Donovan

NEW SAFETY barriers will be

put up on Main Rd, Redcliffs,

after two serious crashes within

a year – one which claimed a

life.

But they won’t be completed

until February next year.

In March, Mt Pleasant resident

Maureen Imrie, 73, died when

the vehicle her husband was

driving slammed

through a rickety

wooden barrier

near Shag Rock

and plunged into

the sea.

were able to pull

crashes

After Mrs Imrie’s death, Dr

Latham met with city council

staff and police, and sought

urgent action on both sites.

While he was pleased to

hear measures were being put

in place, Dr

Latham was

disappointed

at the lack of

communication

from the

city council.

Dr Latham

was unaware

of the plans

to install a Darrell

new section of Latham

barrier south of the bend.

“It would have been good

if the community board

was updated and advised

accordingly. We haven’t had

an update regarding the latest

measures and that would have

been nice.”

Aaron Haymes, city council

transport operations manager,

said the barriers will be in place

by February 2018.

“We will then consider

continuing the (southern

barrier) a further 160m, which

will require additional approval

and funding,” he said.

​LUCKY: The aftermath of Sunday’s serious crash on the Christchurch Akaroa Rd.

Pair lucky to survive horror smash

• By Andrew King

TWO PEOPLE are lucky to be

alive after a horror smash saw

their vehicle leave the road and

end up in a nearby property

early on Sunday.

The vehicle the man and

woman were in smashed

through a wooden power pole

and a tree before flying over a

2m wall, narrowly missing a

house in Robinsons Bay about

midnight.

Residents who heard the crash

raced to the scene and found

the vehicle in a neighbouring

property after leaving the

Christchurch Akaroa Rd.

Akaroa Senior Constable

Anita Osborne said she could

not believe how lucky the two

occupants were when she first

arrived.

“If you looked at the scene you

wouldn’t think anyone could

have survived,” she said.

Emergency services arrived

and firefighters cut free a

27-year-old woman who was

then airlifted to Christchurch

Hospital with head injuries.

The driver, who suffered a

broken back and ribs, was taken

to hospital by ambulance.

The power pole was snapped

off at the base and found in the

paddock a number of metres

away, while debris from the

tree was littered around the

property – there was a big piece

of wood protruding from the

windscreen.

The woman involved in

the crash said she could not

remember anything about

the crash or the ride in the

helicopter.

That was probably a good

thing, she said.

Trampoline

stolen to

‘feed kids’

• By Andrew King

A MAN was caught allegedly

stealing a trampoline in Halswell

to sell for scrap metal to feed his

children.

The 26-year-old appeared in the

district court yesterday charged

with burglary and was remanded

on bail to reappear on August 10.

Senior Sergeant Stephan

McDaniel said when questioned

by police the man said he was

“grabbing it [the trampoline] for

scrap metal to feed his kids”.

It’s alleged the offender was

seen at a property on Cashmere

Rd at about 2pm on Tuesday by

Community Watch Christchurch

South as they went past to patrol a

nearby subdivision.

When the patrol came back the

owner of the property was speaking

with the man so they pulled

over behind his vehicle.

He had the deconstructed

trampoline and other items in the

back of his vehicle.

Police were called to the scene

and the 26-year-old was arrested

for the alleged burglary.

Senior Sergeant McDaniel

said it was a good catch for the

community patrol.

LOYAL: Fans will descend on the city this weekend for the quarter-final

between the Highlanders and Crusaders.

Southern rugby army

about to invade city

A MOBILE army of blue and gold

supporters is set to descend on

Christchurch this weekend.

The Landers Army, made up of loyal

Highlanders supporters, is organising

a convoy for those heading to the Super

Rugby quarter-final on Saturday.

The Highlanders will take on the

Crusaders at AMI Stadium at 7.30pm.

The convoy will leave Dunedin’s

Forsyth Barr Stadium at 10.30am that

morning, with plans to gather at Speight’s

Ale House at Tower Junction before the

match.

Highlanders coach Tony Brown is the

theme of the trip, with fans encouraged to

catches

some out

AT FIRST glance, it looks like a parking

ticket, but when you take a second look,

it’s something much better.

The tickets are being handed out on

vehicles in Christchurch for “failing to

display a sufficiently satisfied stomach”.

The ticket, issued by Burger Fuel City

Council, entitles the user to a serving of

free fries and aioli “anytime, as long as

we’re open”.

Aaron Gardiner shared the image

on Facebook, and said: “This is quite

clever... Burger Fuel is giving out parking

ticket style vouchers.”

But not everyone has been impressed

with the Burger Fuel promotion.

“A few years ago, I got one of these

and only saw it when I started driving,

I thought I had a ticket and went on a

rant the whole ride home,” wrote Gary

Dooley on Facebook.

Prior to that, the Crusaders came out

victorious after Mitch Hunt nailed a drop

round robin clash to win 25-22.

As of yesterday afternoon, tickets were

A RETIREMENT village being built in

Addington will have a public cafe, creche,

community centre, health hub and even

animals.

Park Lane Retirement Village will

feature Living Well – a new concept

designed to create community

connections and empower retirees.

Arvida Group chief executive Bill

McDonald said Living Well would be a

public community precinct.

“Living Well Park Lane will include

a community centre for both the public

and residents, complete with a café

that sources produce from the village’s

communal gardens, a community crèche,

a health club and animals including

THE CASE of missing man

Michael McGrath will appear on

the television crime show Police

Ten 7.

It will screen today – almost

two months to the day since the

builder was last seen on May 21.

Detective Inspector Darryl

Sweeney, who heads the

investigation called Operation

Renovation, said Mr McGrath’s

family were “desperate” for answers.

“Michael’s disappearance is completely

out of character,” he said.

A phone line has been set up for the

operation, 0800 346 364, with the hopes

people may call in with information after

tonight’s episode.

“We’d encourage people to watch the

chickens and lambs. Traditionally

retirement villages are a gated community

– here the community is warmly

welcomed to be part of life at Park Lane.”

Mr McDonald said Christchurch was

the perfect place to launch Living Well

because of the innovative developments

happening with the rebuild.

He hoped to roll it out across other

Arvida retirement villages, he said.

Park Lane would use solar energy to

power the main buildings, and would also

offer electric cars for residents to use.

Apartments at the new Park Lane

Retirement Village go on sale today, with

the majority expected to be completed

and ready for tenants in March.

Police Ten 7 show and to get in

touch with any information they

may have – no matter how small

or insignificant they think it

might be. All calls will be treated

in confidence by the Operation

Inspector Sweeney said.

The search for Mr McGrath included

police dive squads looking

in bodies of water in the Halswell

area and a team scouring Kate Valley

Landfill in Hurunui.

The home of Christchurch Men’s

Prison correction officer David Benbow’s

was also searched.

The episode of Police Ten 7 will be aired

on TV2 at 7.30pm today, as well as TV2+1

at 8.30pm.

Pay by plate system soon

• By Bridget Rutherford

GONE ARE the days of pay

and display.

The city council is upgrading

its 228 parking meters to a new

system which would prevent

the need to print out a ticket,

return to your vehicle and put

it on your dashboard.

Instead, the new pay by plate

system would see motorists

type their licence plate number

into the machine, choose the

time they would like to stay, before

paying and walking away.

Parking wardens will then

be able to use the data to check

it against the licence plates of

parked vehicles.

City council transport operations

manager Aaron Haymes

said the upgrade would begin

in October, and would take

about four to six weeks.

He said it would cost $900,000,

but would save $50,000 annually

in operation costs.

“Of significance, eliminating

paper tapes saves 1.5 million

paper tickets or 800kg of paper

annually from entering the

Christchurch waste stream and

littering city streets.”

Mr Haymes said currently,

the city council had 228 parking

metres servicing 2292 pay

and display spaces, and another

31 machines in stock.

All of them are about 10

years old and need to be upgraded

to meet international

security standards, he said.

While the main structure

would remain the same, the

front panel and terminal component

would be replaced.

He said last year, the city

council collected $4.9 million

in revenue through on-street

parking machines.

“Customers will be able to

pay by credit card including

the no-contact method and

will still be able to pay with

coins and use the text-to-park

option.”

Hamish Kember, who uses

the parking meters, said the

new system would be a lot

more convenient for motorists

not having to place the ticket

on the dashboard.

“It’s always a pain having to

go to and from.”

Auckland and Tauranga

councils were in the process of

upgrading their meters to the

same system.

Mr Haymes said while the

machines were upgraded, the

city council would have extra

staff out on the streets to help

people learn to use them.

Sewage testing

shows less

meth users

• By Gabrielle Stuart

POLICE BELIEVE drug-takers in

Christchurch may be using less meth

and more synthetic cannabis after

testing the city’s sewage.

Christchurch’s wastewater networks

were tested for drugs between December

to February as part of a police

study. The testing found between 458g

and 798g of methamphetamine was

being used in the city each week.

Christchurch Intelligence district

manager Trevor Dickinson-Mclachlan

said that was less than police expected

to find based on the amount of meth

use they had seen or had reported.

He said the symptoms of meth addiction

were similar to some synthetic

cannabis addictions, so believed they

could have been mis-reported. They

could not test for synthetic cannabis

in the study, because the chemicals

used in different batches were so different,

he said.

“I would suspect it could be as big or

bigger than meth use here,” he said.

Police were also surprised by the

amount of ecstasy found in the study

– between 120g and 261g per week.

He said that could be because users

tended to stay “under the radar” unless

they overdosed or had complications.

Man assaulted

at boy racer

meet needs

surgery

• By Andrew King

Thursday July 20 2017

A MAN needs a steel plate put in

his head after he was assaulted at

a boy racer meet near McLean’s

Island on Sunday morning.

He and his cousin, who is 23

weeks pregnant, had gone to

find some friends at about 3am

on Pound Rd, but when they

arrived they were immediately

involved in an altercation.

A family member of the

assaulted man told The Star that

he was attacked by an offender

wearing “knuckle dusters” who

also smashed out windows in his

cousin’s car.

He and his cousin had driven

in separate vehicles to the meet.

She fled and hid in her vehicle

when the assault took place.

The victim’s eye socket is

so badly damaged, he needs

surgery to put a steel plate in.

They will never go cruising

again. I hope my nephew will be

okay,” the family member said.

Police have confirmed they

have received a complaint about

the assault and are following

“strong lines of inquiry”.

Sir Graham linked to another trophy

HE COACHED the All Blacks to

their second World Cup victory,

and now a trophy in his name

will be up for grabs at next year’s

Golden Oldies World Rugby

Festival.

The Sir Graham Henry Trophy

will be contested in the newlycreated

president’s grade division

of the festival.

The festival will be held in

Christchurch in April, as part of

the Christchurch Casino Golden

Oldies Sports Celebration 2018.

Event organiser Peter

McDermott said it was

appropriate one of New

Zealand’s legendary rugby

names will be on the trophy

awarded to the winner of the

new division.

“Rugby was the first ever

Golden Oldies sport dating back

to 1979, and we are excited to

be able to now cater for players

who want to add a competitive

element on-field while still

enjoying the off-field social

aspect, which is what Golden

Oldies sport is all about.”

Sir Graham said Golden

Oldies rugby brought likeminded

people together to

share a sense of camaraderie

with fellow rugby players from

around the world.

He said it was an honour to

have his name on a trophy that

represents those old traditions.

“For me personally, it is also

an honour to have the trophy

awarded for the first time

in my hometown where my

rugby playing days began as a

schoolboy.”

The new president’s grade

division will be played under

the full World Rugby laws and is

expected to attract a new group

of players to the popular Golden

Oldies rugby programme.

Rugby is expected to be the

largest sport at next year’s event

with more than 110 teams

entered so far from across the

world. The Golden Oldies World

Rugby Festival will be played

from April 22-29 at Hagley Park.

It is one of 10 sports which

make up the month-long

Christchurch Casino Golden

Oldies Sports Celebration 2018.

The event is expected to bring

about 10,000 people to the city.

Teen to hike barefoot

for kids with no shoes

• By Ashleigh Monk

WALKING the 78km of the

Heaphy Track is no mean feat.

But what about walking it

bare feet?

Teenager Bo Hofmans

(right) plans to do just that in

an effort to raise money for

disadvantaged children who

don’t have shoes to wear to

school.

The 15-year-old Cashmere

High School student has been

walking the gravelly Rapaki

Track to prepare for his

barefoot hike in October.

“I was thinking doing

[the walk] barefoot might

be a good idea just as an

experience, and then my mate

mentioned ‘why don’t you do

it for a charity?’”

Bo did some research and

found out KidsCan had a

“Shoes for Kids” programme

that had seen 128,000 pairs

of shoes donated to underprivileged

children who went

to school barefoot.

Bo said he would soon start

carrying a 15kg pack and rub

methylated spirits on his feet

to prepare for the Heaphy

Track.

“I’m hoping for a nice inch

of callouses,” he said.

“It would be great if I

didn’t feel anything while I’m

walking.”

Bo has set up a Givealittle

page called Barefoot for

KidsCan, and hopes to raise

about $15,000 before his hike

on October 9.

Intel work vital for crime prevention

The Star continues

its series on the work

police in Canterbury

are doing on crime

prevention, heading off

trouble before it starts.

Gabrielle Stuart reports

on the police intel unit

THE PROBLEM with writing

about police intelligence is that

people working in intelligence

don’t like to talk about what

they do.

When they heard a journalist

was due to arrive last week,

many in the Christchurch intel

team made themselves scarce.

Christchurch intelligence

district manager Trevor

Dickinson-Mclachlan said it

was nothing personal: Most of

his team liked to stay out of the

spotlight.

Their job is to monitor, watch,

and report. To stay in the

background.

Their greatest victories are

when criminals are stopped

or crimes are prevented before

anything happens – and nothing

happening doesn’t make a very

good story.

Often the public won’t hear

anything about what they do,

unless something goes wrong.

Yet they do a huge amount.

The Canterbury team is

about 30-strong, and deeply

involved in all kinds of policing

work from preventing drug

crime to keeping people safe at

community events.

The majority of them are

civilian, non-sworn staff, from

all kinds of backgrounds – from

people trained in the army

to data analysts fresh from

university.

When I ask Mr Dickinson-

Mclachlan about his own

background, he says that’s tricky

to answer.

He has been a non-sworn

officer for Auckland and

Canterbury police for about 16

years and has spent his career in

intelligence. But aside from mentioning

a stint working with the

army, he can’t tell me the details

of who he has worked for.

He can talk about why he

chose to work in the field, and he

is quietly passionate as he talks

about it.

When he started with the

police, intelligence was known,

slightly disparagingly, as “the

news and the weather” – seen as

somewhat removed from frontline

policing work, he said.

But looking ahead was vital to

preventing crime, he said.

“Years ago, staff came into the

station and got their keys and

drove out, and it was effectively

up to them where they headed.”

How intel works in the field

LATE LAST year, a

Christchurch analyst noticed

something strange.

In several recent crimes, the

stolen getaway vehicle used had

been a Mazda Demio – traditionally

seen as a “nana car”

and definitely not known for its

speed.

Until 2015, the number of

Demios stolen had been in the

single figures. But, in the 12

months between February 2016

and February this year, 55 had

been stolen.

Many of the thieves were

young – 17 or younger.

Intelligence analyst Olivia

By using intelligence information

to assess where and at what

times crime was most likely to

happen, patrols were much more

effective, he said.

On Friday and Saturday

nights, they saw people walking

between bars on Victoria St

and on St Asaph St, and taking

shortcuts through empty car

parks and construction sites.

Those areas were often dark

and quite isolated. But they

were also open, so by patrolling

regularly there, police could see

what was going on and make

sure people were safe.

As the city was being rebuilt,

they could see potential problems

and work to prevent them.

He said crime had been “virtually

eliminated” at the central

city Bus Interchange through

good design: Eliminating dark

corners, spreading waiting areas

out, and using architectural

tricks like high and low ceilings

to psychologically guide people

out into open spaces.

Unregistered or unwarranted

cars in the eastern suburbs

was another problem they saw

regularly.

“I could send people out to issue

tickets to people with no warrants

or driver’s licences. Would

it work? Yes, we’d issue lots of

tickets. But would it be effective?

No, probably not: It would be

just another ticket they couldn’t

afford to pay,” he said.

By helping people get into

driver training, get drug or alcohol

addiction help, or get a job,

the root cause of many problems

could be solved, he said.

They also regularly did undercover

work.

Plain-clothes officers from his

team had been planted in the

crowd during World Cup cricket

matches at Hagley Oval, and had

been able to catch several people

involved in illegal overseas

betting rings – as well as the odd

streaker.

For something more routine,

Cleaver said that may have

been because they were seen

as an easy target, without

the immobilisers or security

features of newer vehicles.

She said they had also been

featured in the video game,

Grand Theft Auto, which could

mean they were perceived as

“cool nana cars”.

Once they identified the

problem, police could work to

prevent it. They helped owners

of Demios find ways to make

them more secure, warned

other agencies about it, and

looked out for any being driven

suspiciously.

like a burglary, his team were

often asked for help.

They kept lists of potential

suspects who had been through

the court system or were known

to be in the area, and could

quickly come up with a list of

doors to knock on if a crime had

happened.

People from his team also

regularly spent time scanning

public social media and sites

online, looking for stolen goods

or anything suspicious.

Mr Dickinson-Mclachlan said

big data and technology was

quickly changing the way that

worked.

Programmes were being

developed which were able to do

that online scanning for them,

and ping anything potentially

suspicious.

As the number of cameras

in the city grew, they were also

becoming a more useful tool.

But he believed the most

important part of the job would

always stay the same: Preventing

crimes, and doing everything

possible behind the scenes to

keep people safe.

“I almost take it personally.

For every victim of a burglary,

I think how did we fail here?”

he said.

Police prepped for everything and anything during Lions tour

THREE MONTHS before

any Lions fans arrived in

Christchurch for the Crusaders v

Lions match, police had already

mapped out everything that

could go wrong.

They detailed potential

problems – like extra tourists

and campervan convoys

travelling on the damaged

roads between Picton and

Christchurch, alcohol-related

problems around the stadium or

fan zones, and the increased risk

of vehicle break-ins as tourists

were seen as “an easy target”.

The impact of anything

going wrong could be serious,

intelligence district manager

Trevor Dickinson-Mclachlan

said.

“If you had one Lions fan

killed in a fatality on our roads,

it would go around the world,

and you think about the impact

it could have on New Zealand’s

reputation,” he said.

So they detailed ways to

prevent problems before they

happened.

For potential problems on the

roads, they worked with the NZ

Transport Agency to have extra

signage put up between Picton

and Christchurch, worked

with Lions tour operators and

rental car companies to get

information out to drivers, and

posted extra police on the roads

that week.

In the end, there was only

one serious incident – a family

of Lions fans who had their

campervan broken into and

valuables stolen, including their

tickets and passports.

It was impossible to say if

more might have gone wrong if

they hadn’t been prepared, Mr

Dickinson-Mclachlan said.

But it did mean they had

everything on hand to help the

family of Lions fans, including

after-hours numbers they called

to get the family new tickets

to the match and replace their

stolen documents.

I’M REALLY proud of the fact that

on Tuesday this week, the city council

became the first organisation in New

Zealand to be awarded the Energy-Mark

Gold certification.

This is the highest level of certification

and demonstrates a real commitment to

energy management.

Our civic office is among the greenest

office buildings in New Zealand and

we want other community facilities

to be based on the same sustainability

principles.

We have implemented a resource

efficiency and greenhouse gas emission

management programme for our

activities, which not only includes

management of energy use and

greenhouse gas emissions, but also

management of solid waste generation

and water use.

We offer free sustainability advisory

services and incentives to businesses and

to homeowners to improve water and

energy efficiencies.

We have also gained the certified

emissions measurement and

reduction scheme certification. This

ensures accurate measurement of the

organisation’s carbon footprint and

having a strategy in place for managing

and reducing its emissions.

So why is this important?

In my view, cities have to lead the way

and Governments need to meet their

commitments under the Paris Agreement,

the fulfilment of which is critical to the

future of the planet.

It’s the ‘think globally, act locally’

principle in action.

Christchurch has been asked to join the

Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate

and Energy. Before we do that, I want our

commitment to be real. Signing up isn’t

enough – it’s actually making it happen

that will make a difference. The city

council can show leadership, but we need

businesses and communities to do so too.

Our target sustainability business

services is a good example of the city

council’s efforts to help Christchurch

businesses with their resource efficiency

and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The former president of the United

States made a statement that really

resonated with me when he said we could

not “condemn our children to a planet

beyond their capacity to repair”.

I hope our efforts in Christchurch

contribute to ensuring that doesn’t

happen.

question, email mayor@ccc.govt.nz.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

CHICKEN BREAST WITH

MUSHROOM STUFFING

AND MARSALA GLAZE

Ingredients

1 Garlic clove

1 Shallot, or small onion, diced

15g Butter

50g White Button mushrooms

2 slices Bread, stale and diced

1 Tbsp Parsley, finely chopped

1 Lemon, zest

2 Chicken breasts

1 Tbsp Oil

3 Tbsp Marsala, or sherry

2 Tbsp Cream

Directions

Stuffing

In a small frying pan, fry the

garlic and shallot in the butter

until translucent. Add the mushrooms

and fry for 2-3min until

cooked. Add the breadcrumbs,

cooking until the butter has

been absorbed.

Take off the heat, add the parsley

and lemon zest and season

with salt and freshly ground

black pepper.

To cook the chicken

Heat the oven to 180 deg C.

Stuff the chicken breast by lifting

the tenderloin up (if there is no

tenderloin, ignore this). Press

half of the stuffing on to the

breast meat. Cover the stuffing

with the tenderloin. Wrap the

breast with kitchen string to secure

the stuffing in place and tie.

Repeat with second breast.

Heat a frying pan and add oil.

Add the breasts skin side down

and season with salt. When

browned on one side, turn and

season again. After 3min, place

the pan in the hot oven for a further

10-12min or until cooked.

Remove from the oven and

cover with foil to rest for 5min.

To serve, place the chicken on a

chopping board and remove the

string.

Slice in half and place on a

warmed plate. Cover with foil

while you make the sauce.

Return the pan of chicken

juices to the hob. Add the

marsala or sherry and let it

reduce for 2-3min (this is called

de-glazing). Add the cream and

taste for seasoning. Pour the

sauce over the chicken. You may

need to pour over through a

sieve to remove any burnt pan

leftovers. Season with freshly

ground black pepper. Serve with

potatoes and greens.

GARDENING

ADVICE with

QUESTION

What is the best way of propagating Tree Peony seeds?

And how do you move one that has grown too big for its position?

Today’s winning question came from Natalie Heaven.

Nothing tastes better than home grown, juicy fruit. Adding fruit trees to

your garden offers you everything an ornamental tree does, but with

the added bonus of fruit crops. You don’t need to start a large orchard;

it’s easy to incorporate a few fruit trees into your garden planting or

even grow them in pots.

We have a Daltons Premium Fruit Tree Care

pack to give away which includes everything

you need to plant and care for fruit trees.

Valued at over $70, it contains:

• 2 x Garden Time Planting Mix

• Daltons Premium Planter Tabs

• 2 x Daltons Mulch & Grow

• PLUS a pair of comfortable,

versatile Red Back gardening

gloves from Omni Products

(www.omniproducts.co.nz)

$70

PRIZE

PACK!

ANSWER

Tree Peonies are typically propagated

by grafting onto Herbaceous Peony roots

(normal peonies that you can acquire from nurseries). Therefore, you

may want to do some experimenting with the timing of seed collection and

sowing techniques, as the more traditional peonies are propagated by root division.

To transplant a Tree Peony, try carrying out the process in mid-winter when the plant is not in active growth.

Being very careful, dig out as much of the roots as possible. Prepare the new planting site thoroughly with

ample amounts of Daltons Compost, as all peonies thrive on organic matter. Shift the plant carefully, providing

support if necessary, and fi rm into position. Ensure it is planted at the same depth that it was previously

growing, then add more compost around the base of the plant. Water well after shifting to help reduce possible

transplant shock.

Products to try: Daltons Compost and Daltons Mulch & Grow.

Control pests with winter spray

THE BEST antidote to a pest and

disease-ridden spring garden is thorough

winter spraying.

Nothing toxic is required — simply

give plants a good dowsing of copper

spray, followed a week later by an application

of spraying oil. Both of these

are regarded as organic.

Repeat three times over the winter

months to kill both overwintering

insect eggs and disease spores. It’s

especially important to spray fruit

trees (including citrus), roses and

other deciduous plants, as well as any

plants badly infested with insect pests

or disease last summer.

In fact, you should spray the entire

garden, but wait for any winter-flowering

plants to finish blooming before

you begin.

Garden pests lurk in the most unexpected

places.

Check the undersides of leaves for

scale insects, and leaf sheaths and

stems for mealybug and scale.

Look for silvering of leaves on

evergreen shrubs and trees including

rhododendrons, camellias and pieris.

This silvering indicates the presence of

thrips. Spray oil to clean these up and

reduce their numbers for spring. Collect

diseased fallen leaves and place in

the rubbish bin (not the organics bin).

Spray the ground around infected

plants with copper spray to help kill

disease spores.

Winter-hardy weeds can overrun

the garden, making control in spring

a nightmare. Spray with fast-acting

glyphosate or dig out hard-to-kill

weeds such as dock. Once weeding is

done, fork compost through soil and

mulch with a 10cm layer of fine bark

or pea straw.

NON-TOXIC: Use a copper spray

to get rid of unwanted pests.

Hiroshima’s haunting memories

• By Mike Yardley

IT’S THE sight of the charred,

mangled child’s tricycle, inside

the Hiroshima Peace Memorial

Museum, that really ripped at my

heart.

The scorched tricycle was

donated by Nobuo Tetsutani, his

three-year-old son, Shin, died

hours after the atomic bombing of

their city. Nobuo found the barely

alive Shin clinging onto the trike’s

handlebars, trapped under the

rubble of their destroyed home,

before dying later in the evening.

Like millions of fellow visitors

every year, I too was drawn to

the city where so many people

were wiped out in one instant of

apocalyptic destruction.

The biggest surprise is the

irrepressible beauty of Hiroshima,

an instantly agreeable city,

soothingly swathed in vast green

spaces, lush and leafy streets and

eye-catching rivers.

Rather than replicate the prewar

cityscape, the new Hiroshima

was built as a city of great appeal.

But it’s the raw and poignant

atomic legacy that dominated my

exploration.

The most haunting reminder of

the bombing is the A-Bomb Dome.

Adjacent to the Peace Memorial

Park, this landmark was formerly

the Industrial Exhibition Hall,

situated at ground zero of the

bombing. When the first bomb was

dropped, it exploded 500m above

the building, killing its occupants

instantly.

Now preserved as a World Heritage

site, its twisted girders, gaping

holes, piles of rubble and shell-like

appearance is shockingly evocative,

bracketed in verdant trees.

Inside the Peace Memorial Park,

I rang the Peace Bell, which visitors

are encouraged to do. Nearby is the

Memorial Mound, a monument

containing the ashes of tens of

thousands of bombing victims.

The saddest memorial is the

Children’s Peace Monument, which

depicts a girl with outstretched

hands, while a crane bird, the Japanese

symbol for longevity, flutters

above. The monument refers to a

child who believed that if she made

Dome, modern day Hiroshima and the Children’s Peace Monument.

1000 paper cranes, she would recover

from her radiation sickness.

She didn’t survive, but the memorial

is continuously adorned by

fresh paper cranes made by school

children.

Across the road is the curved

beauty of the cenotaph, which

artfully frames the A-Bomb Dome

and the Flame of Peace, which

will only be extinguished when all

nuclear weapons in the world have

been decommissioned, completes

the memorial walk.

From there, I ventured inside the

Peace Memorial Museum, which

graphically showcases the sobering

consequences of the atomic

bombing, with photos, videos

and personal exhibits, like that

scorched trike. I was struck by

the watch on display, that stopped

ticking at 8.15am, when the bomb

exploded, worn at the time by

Akito Kawagoe; there are various

school uniforms, ripped and burnt,

worn by children at the time of the

bombing; mangled lunch boxes

and deformed glass bottles, melted

by the horrendous heat.

There are searing first-hand

accounts from survivors of the

bombing, who later died from their

horrific burns, radiation disorders

and cancers. Beyond the emotional

intensity of the war legacy, it helps

to dispel the gloom by soaking up

Hiroshima’s post-war renaissance.

I love how the city has developed

so many urban gardens, studded

with ponds, miniature bridges and

magnificent sculptures.

Hiroshima Castle seemingly

floats on its moat. Destroyed by the

bomb, it has been faithfully reconstructed

and the main courtyard

also includes trees sporting scorch

marks from that fateful day.

It is the Christ Church Cathedral

of Hiroshima.

Regardless of the politics of war

and whether you think the bomb

should have been dropped or not,

there is no denying the profound

and insightful impact a visit to

Hiroshima serves up.

The darkest of days, a people’s

resilience, and a city rebuilt with its

arms wide open to the world.

Hiroshima is an easy train ride

away from Tokyo, which I flew to

from Christchurch via the Gold

Coast.

It’s all about the journey

ant

Our last night together at El Nacional

restaurant

By Chris Lyons, Director and Tour Host, World Journeys

If group travel conjures up image of hordes of tourists following a guide with a megaphone,

think again! Small group travel today can be the ultimate way to travel to some of the world’s

most exciting, challenging and exotic countries. I am in the enviable position of hosting small

groups of Kiwi travellers each year to the likes of South America and Africa, and can honestly

say it’s the way to go!

You may not have friends who share your particular ‘bucket list’ of travel desires, but you

don’t like travelling alone. Perhaps tackling a foreign language is too daunting, or you simply

don’t have the energy to do it all yourself. Booking a small group tour takes care of all of that.

There is company to share the experiences with, all the nitty gritty details are taken care of by

someone else, and your host is there to smooth the way should anything unexpected happen.

World Journeys creates and operates a range of small group tours each year, selecting our

most-loved destinations such as the game parks of Southern Africa, the beauty and traditions

of Japan, and the epic ports of the Mediterranean. Some of these journeys include a cruise –

whether that be Holland America Line in the Med, or a small ship in the Galapagos Islands.

Other journeys take roads less travelled, such as our itinerary in still-developing Madagascar

(perfect for avid travellers!).

The Wonders of South America group at Machu

Pichu.

New for 2018 is a ‘Croatia & Slovenia’ journey, which has a little taste of Venice and Mostar

thrown in. There is so much to savour – the karst caves of Postojna, the castles of Predjama and

Bled, picturesque open-air markets, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, historic churches, palaces

and bridges as well as the spectacular Plitvice Lakes National Park. A highlight for many will

be the small ship cruise along the Adriatic Coast, visiting some of the most beautiful Croatian

Islands. Wine and food tasting along the way gives you a true glimpse of local life.

In fact, food and wine is always a highlight of our travel, and we often include a farewell dinner

at a ‘hidden gem’ favourite restaurant enjoyed only by those ‘in the know’.

Most of all, I love the conviviality of travelling in, and hosting, a small group. There’s always

company if you want it, or time to do your own thing every now and then. And every person

brings something to the mix. There may be a keen photographer in the group, who you can follow

to get the best shots, or a fashionista, who will call upon my haggling skills to buy jewellery

or textiles in the markets.

Many lifelong friendships have been forged on tour, and many return again to travel with us in

subsequent years.

Travel is all about the journey, but it’s also about sharing the experience, and that’s the beauty

of travelling with a group.

Young diva takes on Sister Act

said were a huge challenge and

developed her as a person.

“All the things I went through

during studying like relationships

and break-ups and all that

gross stuff helped,” she said.

•Sister Act will run at the

Isaac Theatre Royal from

September 8-23. To book

tickets, visit https://www.

showbiz.org.nz/sister-act

Apart from a tense rugby

game creating the show’s climax,

my favourite scene is when the

Wheatsheaf Arms side are put

through their paces by the nononsense

athlete Hazel, Miriam

van Voorthuizen.

The 1980s music, and the physical

pain each of the performers

convey as they attempt to navigate

their way through the scary

looking gym machinery, was an

entertaining treat to watch.

Whether Wheatsheaf Arms

win or not, the show is triumphant,

sending a message that

anything can happen if you work

hard.

•Up ‘n’ Under runs at the

Lyttelton Arts Factory until

Saturday. To book tickets go

It’s like sudoku: each

vertical and horizontal

line has to contain

the numbers 1-6, and

the numbers can’t be

repeated in any row or

column.

But it’s sudoku with a

twist: The numbers in

each heavily outlined

set of squares, called

cages, must produce the

number in the top corner.

For example, 5+ means

the numbers add up to 5,

9x means the numbers

multiply to equal 9.

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

same line or row.

Cheeky C-HR new

entry for Toyota

• By Ross Kiddie

THE LAST time I drove a

1.2-litre Toyota was the day

I sold my wife’s old Starlet

– that was 10 years ago.

How times have changed,

if you had told me then

that Toyota would now be

marketing a 1.2-litre sport

utility vehicle I would have

said you were joking.

Well, the joke’s on me

because that’s exactly what

has just landed on the

market, a 1197cc SUV/

crossover which Toyota

have simply badged C-HR

– an acronym for coupe

high-rider.

The C-HR is a smart

piece of kit; of course it’s

not overly big but it is bold,

it has edgy styling which

polarises people, most who

I spoke to liked the shape,

but a couple of others felt it

was too weird. Personally,

I grew to like it, the sharp

angles mixed with flowing

curves create a lot of

attention and, judging by

global demand, it is being

well accepted. I particularly

like the position of the rear

door handles, they are situated

just beneath the roof

line and blend into the

design almost invisibly.

In terms of functionality,

the C-HR is quite purposeful,

the interior makes

good use of its compact

proportions, it’s a definite

five-seater, and for three

in the rear it’s cosy but

not tight. In contrast the

interior is a lot more conservative

than the outside

appearance, but it is fresh

and built to the Toyota

quality process. The fit and

finish is perfect with high

grade trim materials.

The C-HR lands here in

just one specification, well

you do have the choice of

either front-wheel-drive or

four-wheel-drive. It is listed

at $37,990 with the 4WD

option adding an extra

$2000. The evaluation car

was without drive to the

rear, and that would be my

choice by far. The C-HR

is not an off-roader, so for

the odd occasion when you

need that extra grip aside,

I don’t know that I’d be

spending the extra.

However, it’s the mechanicals

which make the C-HR

rather special. Under the

bonnet sits the wee fourpotter,

it’s a twin-camshaft,

16-valve design, but instead

of being naturally aspirated,

it has a turbocharger

to boost power outputs.

Toyota rate the engine with

TOYOTA C-HR: Edgy styling.

healthy figures for its size at

85kW and 185Nm; but the

big secret is the area where

those outputs are developed

– 5200rpm for power

and 1500rpm for torque.

Consequently, they are

low in the rev band and,

that being the case, the

engine works solidly and

strongly right through to

the top end, it is a smooth,

whisper-quiet engine and I

guess when you don’t have

a lot of reciprocating mass

you could expect that.

The C-HR isn’t fast but it

• Price – Toyota C-HR,

$37,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4360mm; width,

1795mm; height,

1565mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1197cc, 85kW,

185Nm, continuously

variable automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.5sec

• Fuel usage

–6.4l/100km

will cut out a standstill to

100km/h time of 10.5sec.

Drive is channelled

through a continuously

variable transmission and

it, too, helps enhance the

levels of smoothness and

refinement.

There’s a steady transition

of drive and the ratio

changes don’t load the

engine, that feel of pull

from engine and associated

turbo boost is constant,

the engine feels a lot more

powerful than its figures

suggest. Also, it responds

willingly to throttle pressure,

the beauty of turbocharging

is the instant

response but without the

once heavy fuel use.

Instead, the C-HR is

rated with a 6.4-litre per

100km (44mpg) combined

cycle average. That fits well

with the 8l/100km (35mpg)

average figure showing on

the trip computer, along

The Star

with a 5l/100km (56mpg)

instantaneous figure sitting

at a steady 100km/h

(engine speed 2750rpm).

I took the test car west to

Hororata and presented it

with some short but challenging

corners into the

Malvern Hills. The C-HR

has dynamic handling, and

you’d expect that from a car

which looks like it wants to

move quickly.

The suspension is quality

through and through,

it’s a fully independent

strut/wishbone system and

it hasn’t been dampened

overly firm; instead there

are high levels of comfort.

Suspension control and the

way it arrests body movement

is a credit to the engineering

teams.

The ride is perfect, yet

you can also force the

C-HR into a corner and it

will respond like a sports

car with direct steering and

plenty of steering feel.

Riding on high quality

Michelin tyres (225/50 x

18in) there is a lot of rubber

on the road and that, too,

contributes to the strong

feeling of stability.

In one of my Lexus evaluations

last year I remarked

that I couldn’t wait to drive

other vehicles with the new

2-litre turbocharged engine

that is finding its way

through those premium

vehicles.

I thought that engine

would also trickle its way

through Toyota product

as well, that hasn’t happened

yet, but Toyota did

surprise me when the

C-HR was lunched, I didn’t

expect its re-entry into

turbocharging would be in

an engine with such small

capacity.

The fact remains, though,

that it works well and

serves to prove that you

don’t need cubic capacity

to glean good performance.

Add all that with those

sharp styling elements and

the C-HR is certainly a

standout SUV.

Lino surprise call up to replace Johnson in Warriors

MASON LINO’S out-of-the-blue

call up to the Warriors is both a

blessing and a curse.

Lino has been named to

replace the injured Shaun

Johnson in the line-up to face

North Queensland on Saturday

night. He was preferred ahead

of Ata Hingano for the clash at

1300smiles Stadium, Townsville.

It will be his first NRL appearance

in almost two years, since

he played three games during

the awful end to the 2015 season,

when the Warriors lost six

straight after Johnson suffered an

ankle injury.

While Lino, who is the only

change to the Warriors, will be

thrilled at the opportunity, it’s

another “deep end” scenario. He

comes into a team that has lost

two consecutive matches, and

needs a victory to keep their

season alive on the toughest

road trip in the NRL at a ground

where the Warriors have won

once in 11 attempts.

Lino has yet to win an NRL

match. But the 23-year-old has

been rewarded for two consistent

seasons in the Warriors Intrust

Super Premiership team, which

he led to the finals last year and

currently sit second after 19

rounds in this year’s competition.

Lino is a solid player and his

organisational skills must have

been judged as superior to those

of Hingano, who is on the bench

as cover for both halves and

hooker.

It will leave supporters of

Hingano scratching their heads,

though, especially as the Tongan

has been earmarked – at this

stage – to wear the No 6 jersey

next year after Kieran Foran’s

departure.

“We know Mason will do a

good job for us. He has been

really consistent for our ISP side.

At the same time, we have Ata

on the bench, with his ability to

cover the halves and hooker,”

said coach Stephen Kearney.

Maumalo, Kieran Foran, Mason

Spoilt for choice: League or rugby

• By Gordon Findlater

TEENAGER PATRICK Elia is

a new breed of young footballer

who has both the rugby union

and league codes at his feet.

The 17-year-old, who has

starred in this year’s UC Championship,

has a lucrative option

to switch codes and play NRL in

the future, or stick with rugby.

Elia, who is the full-back for St

Thomas’ of Canterbury College,

has signed a contract with the

Warriors and plans to move to

Auckland in November. However,

he is also being sought after

by the Crusaders, who recently

selected him in their under-18

side.

Elia is not the first to be in

this situation. Cruz Topai-Aveai

– last year’s UC Championship

MVP – switched codes to join

the South Sydney Rabbitohs and

is now with the Cronulla Sharks

under-20 side.

If Elia goes to the Warriors,

he will join one of his first XV

teammates.

St Thomas’ No 8 Seth Tauamiti

has joined the Warriors on a

three-year contract. The two

would also become housemates

at Warriors House – a home

away from home for the club’s

most promising junior players.

St Thomas’ connection with

the NRL club doesn’t end there.

Warriors South Island talent

scout Andrew Auimatagi is a

teacher and coach at the school.

Although Elia has signed with

the Warriors, due to an under-18

rule in the NRL, he could potentially

pull the pin if a more

desirable offer comes up.

“Playing any kind of professional

rugby is a dream. It could

still go either way depending on

what’s going to be best for me,”

said Elia.

NRL player agent and former

Kiwis coach Frank Endacott says

it’s no surprise that NRL clubs

are targeting Christchurch union

players.

The Canberra Raiders actually

rang me last night suggesting

that they’re coming across and

they’ll be looking at rugby union

players,” said Endacott.

Both codes have their pros

and cons at the developmental

level straight out of secondary

school. However, it’s understood

the Warriors have been able to

offer more of an immediately

beneficial package money-wise

than the Crusaders.

“It seems like, in rugby league,

they reward you first and then

you train hard. With rugby

(union), you have to train hard

and then you’ll get the reward,”

said Elia.

After cracking St Thomas’ first

XV as a year 9, he has progressed

in leaps and bounds. At the

weekend, Elia was part of the

Crusaders Junior Knights team

which lost 10-25 to the Hurricanes

under-18 team.

TALENTED MIDDLE distance

runner Nick Moulai should be

lining up for a 1500m race in the

Bahamas today – but instead he’ll

be playing video games in his

new moon boot.

Moulai, 17, was selected to

run for New Zealand in the

1500m and 3000m events at

the Junior Commonwealth

Games. However, his dreams of

competing in the Bahamas were

left in tatters when he partially

tore his plantaris tendon while

competing in a 3000m race

in Hamilton earlier this month.

“I got almost 2km in and then

it kind of just popped. It was

obviously very frustrating. I’m

staying positive, though, and I

like to think that there will be

bigger and better things to come

in the future,” said Moulai.

He won’t just be playing video

He also has from strong family

links to union. His three older

brothers all played for St Thomas’

first XV. His brother Elia Elia

has since gone on to play for

Manu Samoa and English club

Harlequins.

Last year, Elia got his first taste

of rugby league when he played

for St Thomas at the national

secondary schools tournament

in Auckland.

“That was my first ever game

of league. I was just a fill-in

because they were short of numbers,”

said Elia.

Once he was there, it didn’t

take long for the scouts to take

notice.

“I played pretty well up there

and from that tournament I got

two offers, one from the Warriors

and one from the Cowboys,”

said Elia.

From there, he signed the deal

with the Warriors. However,

the Crusaders Academy are also

after his talents and are hopeful

he may decide to stick with the

15-man code.

games. While Moulai has been

in the moon boot, he’s been

doing aqua jogging to keep up his

cardio fitness.

“It’s so boring,” he jokes.

“It’s just lap after lap, so you

end up finding people to go with

so you can talk through it.”

The St Bede’s College student

was a medal hope in the 3000m

at the Junior Commonwealth

Games. In December, he won

the 3000m with a time of 8min

The money factor

The gap in pay scale

between the top NRL and

Super Rugby stars isn’t

massive. However, earlier

this year Kieran Read was

reported to become the

first All Black to secure a $1

million a year contract. In the

NRL there are five players

believed to be earning in

excess of that figure.

Highest paid NRL players

•Daly Cherry-Evans (Sea

Eagles) – $1.3 million.

•Johnathan Thurston

(Cowboys) – $1.2 million.

•Billy Slater (Storm) – $1.2

million.

•Jarryd Hayne (Titans) – $1.2

million.

•Cameron Smith (Storm) –

$1.1 million.

It’s believed the deadline for

Elia to make a final decision is

before the New Zealand Secondary

Schools rugby squad is

selected later in the year.

As it stands, Elia says he is

leaning in the direction of the

Warriors. However, if he does so,

he says the option of returning to

union in the future isn’t off the

cards.

The Warriors also recently

secured the services of another

local youngster. Linwood Keas

player Graeme Patu-Vaega’au

will join the Warriors in November.

Junior Commonwealth Games medal hopeful lands in a moon boot

16.77sec, shattering a nine-yearold

age group national record at

the national secondary schools

track and field championships

in Auckland. That same event is

what Moulai’s attention will turn

to after he has recovered from his

injury.

Key moments will decide quarter-final – Jeff Wilson

• By Steve Hepburn

FORMER ALL Black and

Highlander Jeff Wilson believes

the Highlanders should go into

Saturday’s quarter-final against

the Crusaders with plenty of

confidence.

Wilson said there were many

emotions heading into the game

for the Highlanders and they

would be sure to harness that.

“A couple of the coaches who

are there, who were instrumental

in turning the team around and

carrying on when Jamie [Joseph]

left, are looking to move on,’’

Wilson said.

They [Highlanders] seem to

be one of those teams that do not

lack for motivation and can use

that emotion to their advantage.’’

Highlanders head coach Tony

Brown will become assistant

coach of Japan after the season,

while defence coach Scott

McLeod is linking up with the

All Blacks.


Wilson said it was an interesting

time for the Crusaders.

“But now they have lost a couple

on the bounce and know they

will have to be on their game.’’

Wilson said the fact Brown

said before the quarter-final

line-up had been decided that

he wanted to go to Christchurch

and play the Crusaders was a

huge advantage.

“He wanted the Crusaders, did

not want to deal with the travel.

then you have to go through

Christchurch so the way Tony

has approached it you might as

well play them in the quarterfinal

early on.

“And looking at the play-offs,

the quarter-finals, every other

game is away. So we’ve got the

benefit of a local derby in Christchurch.’’

The Highlanders made a slow

start to the season, losing three

of their first four games, but have

lost just once since then, going

down to the Crusaders in early

June.

Wilson said the Crusaders

obviously had a quality and experienced

forward pack but the

Highlanders had a lot of talent in

the backline.

He said both sides had the

ability to play for the entire 80

minutes and had incredibly

strong defences so it was bound

to come down to a few key moments.

How to stay

warm and dry

Kiwi homes contain hidden health

dangers. Yet first aid for unhealthy

homes needn’t cost a fortune. It can

make a home more saleable as well as a

healthier place to live.

Many older homes are cold and damp

and sometimes have other hazards such

as lead-based paint and asbestos.

There are a number of steps to take to

make your home more healthy.

They include behavioural change,

the cheapest way to make your home

healthier is to open windows to

ventilate.

If you’re out a lot, but want to

increase natural ventilation buy some

security window stays or locks that

allow you to leave windows slightly

open when you’re out. This can be a lot

cheaper to buy and run than high-tech

systems.

If nothing else, insulate the ceiling

and under the house. The Energy

Efficiency and Conservation Authority

(EECA) has information on its website

about funding grants available through

the Warm Up New Zealand campaign.

By 1 July 2019 all rental properties

must have ceiling and underfloor

insulation Ventilation systems move

moisture from the air making the home

healthier and feel warmer.

Adding a sheet of heavy polythene

beneath a home can provide an efficient

moisture barrier beneath piled homes.

A heat pump will warm and ventilate

rooms in the winter and cool them in

the summer. Watch out for hard sell in

this market though and shop around

before buying heating or ventilation

systems.

EECA suggests a number of different

options for secondary glazing, which

is cheaper than retrofitting double

glazing.

Alternatives include DIY window

insulation, aluminium framed

secondary glazing on the inside of

the existing glazing, or acrylic sheets

attached internally.

The latest technology is Low-E films,

which are stuck to existing windows.

This can reduce heat loss by 42 per cent

says Chris Olson, general manager of

ThermafilmNZ.

Healthy homes aren’t just about

insulation and moisture removal.

Using fewer toxic chemicals can

make your home healthier to live in.

Parents of young children sometimes

worry about exposure to chemicals as

do asthma sufferers. As a result some

buyers will also be impressed.

Dust mites can make a home

unhealthy to live in. Use a hepa filter on

your vacuum cleaner or at least vacuum

more often and empty the bag between

cleans.

Decluttering as well reduces the

places that dust can build up.

Mould spores can be very bad

for your lungs. If mould builds up

anywhere in your house clean it off as

soon as possible. If this is an ongoing

problem consider ways to reduce the

humidity.

If your home was built before the

1980s watch out for lead paint and

asbestos. Both should be removed by an

expert.
