Labour

MPs

will

‘benefit’

• By Bridget Rutherford and

Gabrielle Stuart

POLITICAL scientist Bronwyn

Hayward is predicting Labour’s

Christchurch candidates will

benefit at the polls from the

party’s crisis.

The Canterbury University

associate professor said the

change in Labour leadership from

Andrew Little to Jacinda Ardern

would strengthen not weaken

Labour as they go

into the September

23 general election.

“It’s the best

thing Labour could

have done. They

had nothing to

lose.”

Dr Hayward,

who yesterday was

in Wellington for

Bronwyn

Hayward

a democracy conference said: “It’s

amazing the energy from people

who just feel this is a chance for

new ideas. I haven’t seen a shift

like this since 1984 when Rogernomics

came in.”

National has been in Government

since 2008.

Labour started to lose its

traditional grip on the city in

the 2011 election when National

took Christchurch Central. Labour

failed to take it back three

years later.

The party’s support in recent

polls dropped to 24 per cent, its

lowest in more than 20 years.

GAME ON.

Just months ago, September’s

election looked like being a cliff

hanger. The mercurial John Key

was gone and there appeared

to be a mood for change after

National’s lengthy time at the

helm.

That all changed this week

when polls showed Labour nose

diving and more crisis with

Andrew Little stepping aside.

But political scientist

Bronwyn Hayward sees it

differently. On page 1 today, she

says the changes will breathe

new life into Labour’s campaign.

She might be right.

Congratulations to evergreen

Chris Johnson, who has just won

his second jockey’s premiership.

Johnson has had his ups and

downs over the years and for a

time was out of the saddle.

But there has never been any

doubt about his riding skills,

which is why he is called the

Magic Man.

Today we look back on his

season on page 36, and sports

reporter Gordon Findlater

previews the weekend’s club

rugby league preliminary final.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw a Royal Charter on July 31,

1856, making Christchurch New Zealand’s first city.

On August 1, 1929, the Lyttelton Times was re-named

Christchurch Times. It later became the Christchurch

Star then The Star. On the same day in 1975 severe

nor’west gales caused serious damage throughout

the city and province. Winds gusted to 172km/h

(107mph). There were more than 250 injuries in

Canterbury, and many forests were devastated. On

August 4, 1878, a severe snowstorm swept over the

South Island. On August 4, 1923, the railway to the

West Coast was opened. On August 6, 1867, the John

Robert Godley statue (right) was unveiled, it was

New Zealand’s first public statue.

FLOWERS BLOOMING CONFUSED

Roses in bloom and daffodils lining the riverbanks in August? No,

your eyes aren’t playing tricks – something unusual is happening

at the Botanic Gardens. The normally dormant winter flower

beds are bursting with colour, the roses are still blooming, and

daffodils feature on the riverbanks. Gardens collection curator

David Barwick said because there had been no decent frosts or

cold weather, the plants were confused. “They’re either skipping

into spring growth early or they never stopped growing at all.”

MANY ARTEFACTS UNEARTHED

More than 100,000 European and Maori artefacts have been

dug up around the city since the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Archaeologist Katharine Watson, founder of company

Underground Overground Archaeology, said the finds are a rich

resource, and have been kept.

Would you pay $10k for

dinner with Bill English?

• By Gabrielle Stuart

WOULD YOU pay $10,000 for

a dinner with Prime Minister

Bill English, or with Winston

Peters?

Two Cantabrians did last

week, for a good cause – to help

teenager Maddie Collins get a

life-saving kidney transplant in

the United States.

One was Chesters Plumbing

manager Ben Bloy, who paid

$10,000 for pre-dinner drinks

and dinner at Parliament

buildings with Bill English and

Selwyn MP Amy Adams.

He said Maddie’s story had

“touched a chord” for him, as

his own daughter was a similar

age.

But he also wanted the

chance to speak with the prime

minister about how difficult

things had been for small

businesses in Christchurch since

the earthquakes.

He planned to ask Mr English

to make more investment in

Christchurch, he said.

“We need investment in our

city. The anchor projects need

to get going, because some businesses

are really struggling,” he

said.

He said it was a lot to pay for

a dinner, but he said Maddie’s

story had inspired him and he

wanted to help.

“We get caught up with stupid

things going on in our lives,

our ‘first world problems’ with

potholes and things, but here’s

someone living with no kidneys,”

he said.

Another Christchurch man,

who did not want to be named,

paid $10,000 for a dinner at

Parliament with Mr Peters.

He was not a NZ First voter,

but said he thought Mr Peters

would be an “interesting

character” to talk with. He said

he knew Maddie’s family, and

a kidney transplant and is hoping to raise $700,000 for an

operation in the United States. PHOTO: SOPHIE MCMILLAN

wanted to help.

More than $100,000 was

raised through the auction and

dinner at Addington Raceway

last week, bringing the total

raised for Maddie to more than

$270,000.

The expected cost of the

transplant at The Johns

Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore,

United States, is more than

$700,000.

Maddie is in Auckland’s

Starship Hospital this week

with her mother, Sarah Manson

Collins, having more tests and

getting advice about Maddie’s

medication and dialysis

treatment.

Mrs Manson Collins said she

was confident enough money

would be raised to get Maddie

the treatment.

Last week The Star spoke

with Jane Laurie, the woman

who made a $1.5 million pledge

to the family, which they now

believe was false.

Ben Bloy

Bill English

Mrs Laurie last messaged

the family on Thursday, saying

“things went wrong” and she

should not have contacted them

until everything was settled

with the money.

“I sorry it hasn’t worked out

the way I planned,” she said in

the message.

TRAPPED SAVING CAT

needing to call the Fire Service to

rescue him. Woolston firefighters

were called to Randolph St at about

12.45pm on Tuesday after a man

used a fence to get on the roof to

rescue a stricken feline, but was

unable to get down. “He went up

on the roof without a ladder,” a

fire communications spokesman

said. “Lucky he took his phone

with him.” The cat was also rescued.

Max, Bella top dog names

• By Bridget Rutherford

THOUGH MAX is the

most popular male dog

name in Christchurch, this

Max isn’t actually a boy.

Owner Margot Fluitsma

said when they brought the

mixed-breed puppy home

from the pound 14 years

ago, the family was told she

was a he.

“We took her to get her

business done and the vet

told us she was a girl.”

Miss Fluitsma said they

already liked the name so

stuck with it.

“I think we named her

before we got to the car.”

City council figures show

there were 426 registered

dogs named Max, nine of

which are females.

That made it the second

most popular dog name in

the city.

The most popular overall

dog name was Bella, with

579 registered, making it

the most favoured name for

female pooches.

The top five female

names were Bella, Poppy,

Molly, Ruby and Rosie,

while the top male names

were Max, Charlie, Jack,

Toby and Buddy.

Motorist’s second close call

• By Andrew King

THE MOTORIST who

miraculously escaped death

when his vehicle rolled more

than 500m down a Banks

Peninsula hillside is no stranger

to near misses.

Luke Wigram walked away

from the wreck with broken ribs

fingers and bruising.

The last thing I remember is

being violently thrown around.

I expected to die when the car

left the road,” he told The Star

yesterday.

In 1994, Mr Wigram was a

student at Tai Poutini Polytechnic

in Greymouth. On April 27,

his class visited Cave Creek in

the Paparoa National Park, and

walked onto the platform which

would collapse when another

class visited the following day,

killing 13 students and a Department

of Conservation field

officer.

Said Mr Wigram yesterday:

“I remember one of my fellow

classmates saying I don’t think it

should be shaking like this.”

Now Mr Wigram, 39, is counting

his lucky stars again. He was

driving on Summit Rd in his

Ford Focus station wagon, near

Little Akaloa, on Friday, when

RESCUE: Luke Wigram was airlifted to hospital with broken

ribs and fingers and a big gash on his forehead.

hail started to fall on light snow

on the road.

The vehicle slid off the road

and started to roll down the hill.

All he could do was concentrate

on keeping his limbs inside

the vehicle, said Mr Wigram.

Then he lost consciousness.

When he came to, he climbed

out of the badly mangled vehicle,

sore, but incredibly lucky.

He found his cellphone in his

pocket and dialled 111.

Said Mr Wigram: “I just stayed

on the line with the dispatcher

who kept me going. Asking me

questions about what injuries I

had, could I hear sirens, that sort

of thing.”

He was airlifted to Christchurch

Hospital by the Westpac

Rescue Helicopter.

There was a general surprise

that I could survive the roll

down the bank and have few

injuries,” he said.

The last thing I remember

is being violently thrown

around. I expected to die

when the car left the road.’

– Luke Wigram

“If I have a guardian angel, it is

probably taking a well-deserved

break now.”

Mr Wigram was discharged

from hospital on Tuesday.

Senior Constable Tim Johnson

said he had never seen a crash

like it result in the driver walking

away alive.

“About 450m off the side of

the road was the engine, a further

50m were a couple of wheels

wedged into a fence and about

100m down from that was what

was left of the car,” he said.

“He is incredibly lucky.”

Decision whether to

charge coach may

be made tomorrow

• By Gabrielle Stuart

POLICE MAY decide tomorrow

if charges will be laid over alleged

abuse of a young rugby player by a

coach from another team.

West Melton under-14.5s coach

Amanda Tomlinson has been accused

of verbally and physically

abusing a Lincoln player after a

match early last month.

The altercation happened after

an incident between the boy and

a West Melton player during the

match.

The Canterbury Rugby Football

Union began an investigation last

month, but that was put on hold

after the police became involved.

Senior Sergeant Peter Stills told

The Star witnesses were still being

interviewed, but a decision about

the next step in the case was likely

to be made by the end of the week.

Tomlinson told The Star last

month she grabbed the boy by the

collar “so he would look me in the

eye,” after he kicked a player from

her team in the mouth.

CRFU chief executive Nathan

Godfrey said the investigation into

Tomlinson’s behaviour was on

hold, but the incident between the

players during the match may be

separately investigated.

Christchurch’s Labour

MPs will benefit

•From page 1

Christchurch Labour MPs

yesterday admitted Mr Little’s

departure had been unexpected.

But they believe his demise will

in fact help them in the polls.

“Andrew looked at those numbers

and made an assessment of

what stability looked like for Labour,

and he made that call that

it was Jacinda,” Dr Woods said.

She said Labour had strong

policies on Canterbury issues,

including pledges to fund a

Christchurch specialist mental

health team and put $100m into

Rolleston commuter rail, and

they would stay the same under

the new leadership.

But National candidates were

equally confident the change

would go in their favour.

Wigram National candidate

David Hiatt said the change reflected

badly on Labour’s ability

to lead the country.

“We’re busy putting up hoardings

while Labour is taking

theirs down,” he said.

Christchurch Central MP

Nicky Wagner believed the fact

that Ms Ardern was from Waikato

and Kelvin Davis, Labour’s

new deputy, from Northland,

would have an impact.

“From a South Island and

Christchurch perspective, it’s

unfortunate that both leaders are

from Auckland,” she said.

Dr Hayward said Ms Ardern

and Mr Davis were a “powerful

duo”.

Ms Ardern had appeal, while

Mr Davis had strong connections

with the provinces and

appealed to Maori and entrepreneurial

education, she said.

Dr Hayward said the change

in party leadership meant there

was a real shift making way for

fresh ideas and new thinking.

That would benefit Labour’s

current Christchurch MPs and

candidates, she said.

“We lost a lot with John

Key moving away from National

leadership. He was from

Christchurch. It was replaced

with complacency and business

as usual.”

Voters would see it as a chance

for change, and possibly revisiting

plans, such as the blueprint,

she said.

“People will start thinking that

change is possible.”

Labour’s crisis: What

Wagner

Central

The leadership

change may add

more fire to the

hotly contested

Christchurch

Central seat.

It was always a

safe Labour seat –

until 2011.

That year the race between

incumbent Brendon Burns and

challenger Nicky Wagner was

so close, it was tied on election

night. After special votes were

counted, Ms Wagner won the

seat by 47 votes.

In 2014, she increased her margin

to a comfortable 2420 votes.

Labour candidate Duncan

Webb says the leadership crisis

has injected interest in the election,

and would increase the

turnout.

“What I’m finding is a massive

sense of excitement from a whole

lot of people who were previously

bored by the election,” he said.

“That will help Labour and

it will help me,

because unless

people are excited

by the election

they’re not going

to turn out and

vote.”

Ms Wagner

Duncan

would not be

drawn on the

leadership crisis:

“Labour’s leadership is a matter

for Labour,” she said.

But she did comment on their

Safety barriers fast

tracked by estuary

• By Bridget Rutherford and

Sarla Donovan

THE INSTALLATION of new

safety barriers along a stretch of

road that has seen two serious

crashes within a year has been

brought forward to prevent

further accidents.

New barriers will be installed

along part of Main Rd near

Shag Rock this month. They

were meant to be done in February.

City council transport

operations manager Aaron

Haymes said the risk of further

accidents meant they were fast

tracked.

In March, Maureen Imrie,

73, died when the vehicle her

husband Bruce was driving

slammed through the wooden

barrier near Shag Rock and

plunged into the sea.

It came a year after repeat

drink driver Sarah Arrow

crashed through a nearby barrier

in Moncks Bay, badly injuring

a pedestrian.

Mr Haymes said they could

not ignore those accidents.

He said permanent barriers

were being installed as

part of current underground

infrastructure work at the Shag

Rock corner. Temporary ones

were in place.

They would be extended an

additional 100m southwards

to cover where the fatal crash

occurred, at a cost of $60,000,

he said.

The city council would also

do an assessment of a 160m

section between the new barrier

and the existing concrete

barrier south of the site, costing

an extra $92,000, he said.

Most dangerous intersections named

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CHRISTCHURCH

intersections are among

the most dangerous in New

Zealand.

The Memorial Ave roundabout

near the airport was

named fourth highest-risk in

the country, one of 12 intersections

in Christchurch and

Selwyn on the year’s NZ Transport

Agency top-100 list.

The intersection is currently

being upgraded from a roundabout

to an overpass, in an effort

to make it safer.

Also named on the list were

three different intersections

along Marshland Rd, two

on Riccarton Rd and two on

Shands Rd.

CHANGES: The intersection

of Memorial Ave and

Russley Rd, which was

named fourth most

dangerous in the country, is

currently being upgraded

to make it safer.

The list, released by the

NZTA this week, uses data

from crashes between 2006 and

last year.

The intersections are ranked

based on the number of fatal

crashes, and crashes which

leave people injured.

NZTA road safety manager

Bruce Richards said the list

would be used to prioritise

which intersections should be

upgraded.

People were injured in 30

crashes at the Memorial Ave

roundabout over the past 10

years, including four crashes

classified as serious.

Mr Richards believed

that would change once the

intersection was upgraded,

which is being done as part of

the $112 million Russley Rd

upgrade.

On Marshland Rd, the

intersection with Prestons Rd

has been upgraded, but there

are no plans to change the

intersections with Hawkins Rd

and Shirley Rd, which ranked

43rd and 73rd on the list.

Mr Richards said work on

those roads would be considered,

but it was made more

complicated because work on

the Northern Arterial Extension

could change how much

traffic there was on the roads.

RISKY: Three Marshland Rd intersections

made the country’s top 100 most dangerous.

Bottom – Hawkins Rd.

New vehicles boost

for air rescue trust

• By Sarla Donovan

CANTERBURY West

Coast Air Rescue Trust has

just had its three busiest

days on record, attending

22 missions from Friday to

Sunday.

To put that in perspective,

crews would normally

cover six to nine incidents

over a three-day period.

Chief executive Christine

Prince said spikes generally

came from a combination

of ski jobs and weatherrelated

road conditions

such as heavy rain or ice,

leading to more vehicle

accidents.

So it was excellent timing

for local car dealership

Miles Toyota to gift two

new vehicles to the air

rescue trust yesterday.

Miles Toyota chief

executive Andre Heyns

said the trust provided a

critical service and when

it approached him for assistance,

he saw a “valuable

opportunity” to partner

with another Canterbury

institution.

“We’re communitybased

and focused so it was

an easy decision from out

point of view.”

Intensive care paramedic

and winch operator Mike

McLintock takes it all in

his stride.

“Winter is a busy time

for us, what with the

skifields and our other

normal work. We were

down in Timaru twice

on Sunday, with one job

coming in from Fox Peak

skifield. Yesterday we were

up at Mt Hutt for two back

injury patients.”

There was a corresponding

increase in paperwork

which people didn’t see,

Mr McLintock said.

“We do have a great

group of people here

though,” he adds, including

three full-time staff

who are based at the headquarters

24/7.

The cars would be used

as general support vehicles

for events and fundraising.

In Mr McLintock’s 14

years with the service he

had seen a huge increase

in the number of jobs they

perform each year.

“We now do over 700 a

year, up from 300 when I

first started.”

The trust has to fundraise

$7 million annually

on top of what it receives

from the Government to

provide the services.

NEW: The first two stages of a housing development on

Welles St will be completed by October. ​

Apartments ready soon

APARTMENTS BEING built on

an old factory site in Sydenham

will go on sale later this year

from $375,000.

Fletcher Living is building the

Government-led project which

will be known as Atlas Quarter

on Welles St.

The first two stages of the

development are due to be completed

and available for sale in

October.

It will have a mixture of one

and two-bedroom apartments,

along with some three-bedroom

terrace housing.

One-bedroom apartments

will start from $375,000, with

the two-bedroom apartments to

start at $460,000.

The development is part of

the Christchurch Housing Accord,

which is an agreement

between the city council and

Government to boost the housing

supply.

The site, between Colombo

and Manchester Sts, was owned

by property developer David

Henderson.

He sold it to the city council

in 2008, which then sold to the

Crown.

Another of Mr Henderson’s

former properties, the old Sydenham

School site on Colombo St,

is being developed into housing

under the accord as well.

Atlas Quarter will have 109

townhouses and apartments, as

well as ground floor shops.

There would be a shared

courtyard in the middle.

Christ’s, Shirley bands in final

TWO Christchurch bands will

battle it out against the country’s

best in the final of this year’s

Smokefreerockquest.

Christ’s College band Run77

and Shirley Boys’ High School’s

Fuzhun will compete at the

national final in Auckland on

September 2.

Run77, made up of Angus

Mossman, Robert Rolleston,

Henry Phelps, and brothers Angus

and George Murray, won the

Canterbury final.

Fuzhun’s members include

Gideon Valavala, Tasipale

Valavala, Michael Mose, Loutoa

Osai, Temuera Hay, Josh Mosa’ati

and Keenan Jarvis. The band won

last year’s regional final.

Bands from across the

country competed in regional

competitions from May to early

July. The regional finalists then

made 12min videos performing

their original music.

Those videos were judged by a

panel made up of New Zealand

musicians. Judge and Silver Scroll

award-winner, Thomas Oliver,

said the music was unique this

year.

“It’s so good to see some really

strong writers ready to make

their way into the New Zealand

music industry.”

EXPECT

DELAYS

4-6 AUG

The permanent change means traffic will be able to

travel to and from Christchurch International

Airport, under the new Gateway Bridge, for the first

time. It will also allow the project team to complete

the new road on top of the bridge, bringing them a

step closer to completing the upgrade.

New road signage

People travelling through the intersection will

need to pay close attention to the new signage

to ensure their vehicle is in the right lane.

Please be courteous to other drivers who will

also be getting used to the change.

Lengthy delays at Russley Road/Memorial Avenue intersection

While this is an exciting milestone there will be delays

of up to 20 minutes while the changes take place on

4-6 August.

If you’re travelling to the airport leave extra time to get

there or take an alternative route to avoid the work site.

People coming from the north can turn off at

Flood response better than fire

But residents

want solution

• By Bridget Rutherford

BETTER communication was

the key improvement during

last month’s flood response, the

city council says.

City council emergency operations

centre controller Mary

Richardson said they were criticised

for poor communication

during the Port Hills fire, and

learned from

that.

She said this

time around, its

communication

and public information

practices

worked

Mary

Richardson

“exceptionally

well”.

There were

short, regular updates with key

facts throughout last month’s

flooding, particularly before it

started on July 21, she said.

A small team managed the

rostering and tasked staff well,

so there was no confusion, she

said.

Ms Richardson said another

improvement was an online

registration process on the

city council’s website that allowed

people to receive regular

updates and let the city council

know if they had been evacuated.

She said they started the

process immediately during the

floods, whereas during the fire,

it began too late. “We used this

to regularly communicate during

the event.”

Ms Richardson said if people

registered on the city council

website, it could then ask what

help they needed.

During the Port Hills fire,

evacuated residents received

mixed messages about cordons.

At one stage, Civil Defence

told media 40 homes had been

destroyed before later correcting

that figure to three due to “misinformation”.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said

while many were concerned

about the city council’s flood

protection programme, a lot of

residents were “overwhelmingly

complimentary” about the

response.

Southshore Residents

Association chairman Bill

Simpson said communication

had always been good, but the

stopbank infrastructure was not

there to protect the area from

flooding.

The decision-making should

have been done two, three or

four years ago,” Mr Simpson

said.

“That’s why residents get so

angry. They know what needs to

be done and what will happen if

it’s not. And that’s exactly what

happened.”

The city council is preparing

a report on the feasibility of

a proposal for estuary edge

protection.

City councillor Yani

Johanson, whose Linwood

Ward suffered a lot of the

brunt of the flooding, said the

registration process was a huge

improvement from the fire.

City councillor Raf Manji said

the information processes were

“much better”.

The more information you

give people, the better they feel.

So I think there’s been a big

improvement.”

Port Hills blaze

a lesson

during flooding

• By Bridget Rutherford

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel called an

early state of emergency during the

recent floods because of learnings

from the Port Hills fire.

Ms Dalziel made the announcement

on July 22 at about 11.20am

after relentless rain caused widespread

flooding.

It was called a “precautionary approach”

because of river level rises

due that afternoon, Ms Dalziel said.

“As it turned out this was the right

call because we had all agencies

and systems in place to support and

evacuate residents when the flooding

occurred.”

When asked if the state of emergency

was called early because of

criticism and learnings received

during the Port Hills fire, Ms Dalziel

said “yes”.

By the time the state of emergency

was called on February 15 during

the fire, it had burned for two days,

causing hundreds to evacuate their

homes. Many said it came too late.

Two separate fires started on

Marleys Hill and Lansdowne on

February 13. By February 15, a wind

shift caused the fires to merge.

Police say the Marleys Hill fire

was suspicious.

Keeping the peace while others go

The Star continues its series on the work police in

Canterbury are doing on crime prevention, heading

off trouble before it starts. Bridget Rutherford

reports on the Police Support Unit

IT’S 6PM on a Friday.

After-work drinks have begun,

university students are prepping

for parties, and everyone is

excited the weekend has arrived.

But as the rest of the city kicks

back, the Police Support Unit

goes into overdrive.

The unit deals with keeping

the public order, major event

policing, monitoring licensed

premises, and supporting other

police units when needed.

Senior Sergeant Gordon Spite,

who is in charge of the unit’s 21

staff, said in the areas they covered,

alcohol played a significant

role.

Most Friday and Saturday

nights, the unit is called to multiple

parties – many of which are

hosted by university students in

Riccarton and Ilam.

While many are random callouts,

police already know some

are happening.

With the launch of the Good

One website in 2014, people are

now able to give police a headsup

and, in turn, police can give

them some words of wisdom

before the party.

A host can go onto the website

and register their party, along

with the address, time and

date, and their name and phone

number.

The police District Command

Centre is then notified and an

email is sent to the host with

tips for keeping the party under

control.

A “risk assessment” is done

based on the number of people

attending and the demographic.

“If there were 20 people we

wouldn’t worry, but if there

were 250 people, we’d be a little

concerned about that,” Senior

Sergeant Spite said.

He said police don’t want to

ruin parties. It takes about two

hours to shut one down, with up

to 20 staff.

“We’re taking staff away from

stuff they should be at.”

After they start at 6pm, the

unit will visit or drive past the

party addresses to make sure

everything is running smoothly.

If needed, officers can go inside

and ask if the host needs any

assistance. Once they’ve visited,

it’s rare for them to go back a

second time, Senior Sergeant

Spite said.

The spin-offs have been great.

There’s less police time spent

dealing with these sorts of incidents,

less victimisation and less

offending,” he said.

“It appeals to people’s innate

desire to do the right thing.”

The statistics speak for themselves.

Last year, the unit attended 825

parties, made up of about 64,000

people.

Between 2015 and 2016, there

had been a 54 per cent reduction

in disorder, 44 per cent reduction

in assaults, 27 per cent reduction

in damage, and a 22 per cent

reduction in noise.

PREVENTION: Senior

Sergeant Gordon Spite said

the Police Support Unit works

alongside the University

of Canterbury Students’

Association to help run

events and The Foundry.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Senior Sergeant Spite said

often hosts could be naive, or

unaware of how quickly things

could get out of control. Social

media did not help.

But he said not everyone was

receptive to Good One, and

would not register.

Often those were the ones that

needed to be shut down. And at

times, it could get “ugly”.

The unit has formation, baton

and shield training half a day

each week. Protective gear, such

as helmets, are always on hand.

“I hear people say it incites

the crowd if you wear protective

equipment. But I see it like a

builder going into the building

site. If a bottle flies, my guys are

going to put on helmets. I can’t

afford to have injured staff,”

Senior Sergeant Spite said.

“We just have to make that assessment

on the night.”

Vero and AA Insurance May Extinguish

Unresolved EQ Claims

Vero and AA Insurance have

refused to give a blanket

extension to the date that they

will plead the Limitation Act

as a defence to unresolved

earthquake claims. This will

mean that any claim against

them for earthquake damage

caused more than 6 years ago,

which has not been filed in

either the District Court or

the High Court before 5pm on

4 September 2017, will be relying on the good faith of those insurers to pay

any amount over the EQC cap.

There is a possibility that these claims may still be able to be enforced, if the

courts decide that the limitation period starts from a date other than the date

of damage. For example, Tower has stated that it believes the limitation period

starts from when a claim is settled or rejected by it.

You will still be able to request your insurer pay your claim after the deadline,

but you will not be able to challenge their assessment of the value of the claim

in court. You will simply have to trust and accept what they say they should

pay you. This is not a position you want to be in.

If you think there is even a small chance of your claim with Vero or AA

Insurance going over cap, or that there is damage that has not been correctly

scoped, repaired or paid out for you should contact your insurer and ask if

they will extend the deadline for you. You must get written confirmation of the

extension from them to protect your claim. If you have not lodged a claim with

your insurer, you should do so immediately.

If Vero or AA will not confirm in writing that they will not be relying on the

Limitation Act, you must file a claim in the District Court before 5pm on

4 September 2017 to protect your claim. This will cost you $200 in filing fees,

plus lawyer’s fees. If you can’t afford this, contact Earthquake Services who

can assist you.

THERE IS

NO TIME

TO DELAY,

YOU NEED

TO TAKE

ACTION

NOW

The deadline may apply to all claims, including ones where EQC have not yet

put it over cap, and also to claims that have been settled by EQC by repair or

by payment, where there is further damage that has not been repaired or paid

for.

out and have fun at the weekend

Senior Sergeant Spite said it

was common for bottles to be

thrown at officers. He had been

hit himself.

Often the problematic parties

were attended by the same

people, many of them under-18.

Officers recognised them because

they had caused trouble

previously.

When it came to major events,

such as sports fixtures, Cup

and Show Week, and concerts,

intoxication was a problem.

But the key was to make sure

those people didn’t get in the

gate.

“If in doubt, keep them out,”

Senior Sergeant Spite said.

The problem at the door is

multiplied by 10 the moment you

let them in the door.”

But over the last four years he

had been in charge of the unit,

there had been a huge improvement,

he said.

“We’ve seen really good improvements

in the way the events

are being run. The operators are

doing alcohol management plans

and planning for contingencies.”

The role of police in the unit is

to watch over the event cordon

and just the presence of officers

can help prevent trouble.

Traditionally, cricket matches

•54 per cent reduction in

disorder

•44 per cent reduction in

assaults

•27 per cent reduction in

•22 per cent reduction in

noise

had been problematic because

people were sitting drinking in

the sun all day.

But Senior Sergeant Spite said

that had changed since Hagley

Oval was established.

“That cricket ground is awesome.

It’s the environment, it’s

family-focused. It has a huge impact

on the behaviour of people.”

He said they liked to look at

the crowd’s behaviour as a whole

at each event. One drunk person

being kicked out did not put a

dampener on a good event, he

said.

Each event is policed, based

on what it is. For example, they

would put more staff on a rugby

match that was between higher

ranked teams, Senior Sergeant

Spite said.

Some musicians playing

concerts could be “perceived as

higher risk”, he said.

FRIENDLY: Traditionally cricket matches have been

problematic for police, but the “family-focussed” environment

at Hagley Oval has improved behaviour.

“Somebody like Elton John is

not going to attract problems.”

The unit also does a lot of work

with universities when planning

for particular events, such as

Canterbury’s Tea Party, and

Lincoln’s Garden Party to make

sure they run smoothly.

The event itself is not the

problem, the real risk is before.”

The unit also collaborates on

all student association events,

and works with the University

of Canterbury Students’

Association to run The Foundry.

The unit’s 21 officers are some

of the most recognised faces in

police, Senior Sergeant Spite said.

That’s because they walk the

beat. They are out talking to

people during the day, and are

monitoring behaviour during

the night, particularly on the

weekends.

The earthquakes have had a

big impact. Because bars are

now spread out, congregations of

people are rare.

Senior Sergeant Spite said

when he walked the beat before

the quakes, the intersection

of Colombo and Hereford Sts

was a hot spot for fighting and

indecent behaviour.

“Everyone would converge on

that corner because they would

be going for a feed. There were

all these different groups and just

this constant clash and the place

just looked like a bomb zone.”

But now, officers had to drive

to where the bars were, rather

than covering the central city on

foot.

“One of our biggest concerns

is people not sticking together in

town.”

Officers were out patrolling

making sure those people got

home safely, he said.

The weather has a huge affect

on public order. If it’s raining,

we won’t be particularly busy

outside.”

At times, the unit was called to

help in other areas, like the Port

Hills fire and evacuations during

the recent flooding.

Senior Sergeant Spite said

he was happy with his unit’s

commitment to keeping people

safe.

“An ounce of prevention is

worth a pound of cure.”

“I’M SO GLAD WE

MADE THE MOVE

WHEN WE DID.”

What was it like to have your

photographs go all around the

world?

It’s incredible. I never imagined

that I’d even get a response

from the Beckenham community

Facebook page. So to have

all these people contact me – it

was quite surreal. I don’t know

how I felt – overwhelmed.

How did it come about?

I photograph everything – if

it’s raining, if it’s flooding, if

it’s snowing, I’ll be out there

with my camera. When I came

home and looked at my photos,

I thought they were boring so,

just for fun, I put the Loch Ness

monster in one of them and

posted it to the Beckenham

neighbourhood Facebook page.

They all just started laughing,

and liking, and commenting,

and requesting more, more,

more. They wanted whales and

dolphins so I so did it, purely just

to make them smile and laugh.

And I was rushing through

them, too, it’s not even good

photo-shopping, I’m just quickly

getting them out. It was just all a

bit of fun.

Were you surprised that some

people thought they were real?

Yes, very surprised. I barely

took 5min on each photo. If

I’d known they were going to

go worldwide, I would have

taken more time. The BBC did

a story on them and the Fox

Live Morning Show in Denver,

Colorado, did a piece on it and

showed my images, so that was

pretty amazing.

How long have you been a

photographer?

I started getting into

photography when my eldest

daughter was born in 2010 and

then turned professional around

2013. I’d always wanted to do

photography at high school

(Avonside Girls’ High) but I

didn’t want to do seventh form

art. I didn’t pursue a degree

or qualification because I just

wanted to do photography. So

that turned me towards other

things.

What did you do instead?

After high school, I went to

teachers college and did a degree

in primary school teaching

and learning. After some relief

teaching, I moved to Brisbane

and worked in early childhood

over there. I was young, wanted

warmer weather and just to

do something before I settled

down. We were there for four

years, then I came home with my

partner, now my husband, and

started a family. And, of course,

with a newborn baby, you just

want to take photos of them

every second of the day. It was

about that time I got a decent

SLR camera and I just self-taught

from there. I didn’t go to any

schools, just practice, practice,

practice every day. A friend

suggested I take it professional,

so I did. With my teaching

and childcare background, I

got along with children and

babies so that’s naturally where

I started: Photographing babies,

children, families and I just love

it. Not so much the studio stuff,

I love meeting families in their

homes, in the gardens or at the

beach. My real passion is the

storytelling, the journalistic type

of image.

People in show business say

never work with children or

animals . . . you do both. What’s

the secret?

Haha, I consider myself to be

a big kid really. And, with the

teaching background, I find it

easy to quickly build a rapport

with children. I get down at

their level and just play before I

even start a session. As for the

animals, well most of them are

just so cute who wouldn’t want

to work with them.

Have you ever had a total

nightmare on a photoshoot?

I haven’t had any nightmare

shoots yet. The worst it’s been

would be when a ‘cake smash’

session gets out of control, you

know, a crying toddler running

onto my carpet with bright pink

icing all over their body. Luckily,

I don’t offer cake smash sessions

anymore.

What other hobbies/interests

do you have?

Spending time with my family

is a high priority for me. We

like to get out and about and

explore new parks and beaches,

usually with our golden retriever,

Perry, in tow. Perry had a field

day digging huge muddy holes

all over our yard during the

floods unfortunately. He wasn’t

popular, though it did provide

some funny photo opportunities

ORCA: A killer whale leaps

through the Heathcote River.

PHOTOGRAPHY

for me. I also have to admit that I

do enjoy a good sauvignon blanc

in the evenings after a long day.

Drinking wine can be a hobby

right?

Are the rest of your family

still here in Christchurch?

Yes, I am very lucky to have all

of my family on both sides living

here in Christchurch. Mum

and Dad have always been keen

photographers so I guess that

may have been where my passion

for photography stemmed from.

Mum takes gorgeous wildlife

shots wherever she travels, and

lives adjacent to a reserve packed

with oodles of native flora and

fauna.

Where do you head away for

family holidays?

Family holidays don’t

come too often with work

commitments. However, we do

love a good beach getaway. Our

favourite local spot is Okains

Bay, which is an old childhood

regular. We love the Coromandel

and the warmth that the North

Island provides, but my ultimate

holiday is somewhere tropical

with cocktails and nothing

much to do other than swim and

lounge in the sun.

the surreal

How did you and your

husband meet?

We met here in Christchurch,

quite embarrassingly at a bar.

He was doing part-time bar

work while studying and I was

a teachers college student. Sam’s

now a network engineer.

How long have you been in

your current house?

We’ve been here for nearly

two years now. When we were

looking at this particular house

we fell in love with the area but,

ultimately, what sold it to us was

the gorgeous, large, established

backyard. Perfect for the kids

and photo opportunities of

course. We have no plans to

move any time soon.

How did you manage during

the quakes, was it quite

disruptive?

The quakes were an awful

and an unsettled time for

everyone in Christchurch.

Our ‘then home’ was right

next to the forests and beach

and was actually the ultimate

portrait photographers back

yard. However, there was

much devastation to the area,

including our street, so we

decided to move on. Luckily to

another photographers dream

area – Beckenham – with

hills, rivers and reserves. I

am primarily an ‘on location’

photographer so I didn’t have

to worry about a damaged

studio. However, the recent

floods flooded our garage where

I store my studio equipment

–backdrops, lights and flooring

for when I do any commercial

work or mini studio sessions –

so that aspect of my work might

have to be put on hold for a little

while.

Has this experience sparked

any new ideas for you – any

new projects or plans?

I’ve half-jokingly thought

about doing those fantasy

scenes where there’ll be an

elephant and the child is

superimposed on the back

of the elephant so it looks

like it’s going on a safari. I’m

not really serious, it’s not

personally something I’d add

to my portfolio – but if the

demand was there. And I’m

just going to carry on doing

my family portraits. I’ve been

selling digitals only but I’ve

been wanting to offer heirloom

products like albums and folio

boxes, so that’s next on the

agenda.

Tough few days but we must look ahead

IT’S BEEN a tough but

invigorating few days for Labour.

We saw immense courage from

Andrew Little in his decision to

stand down as leader. Andrew

put the good of the party before

himself and made the assessment

that Jacinda Ardern was better

placed to lead us into September’s

election.

Andrew worked as hard as

is humanly possible for a Labour

victory and stepped down

because he put the interests of

working people and the party

first. Jacinda and Kelvin Davis, as

deputy, have stepped up and both

have had an immediate and positive

effect.

They say a week is a long

time in politics. Well we have

seven-and-a-half of those weeks

until the election. In this time we

have so much to do, but we have

policies, candidates and funds in

hand to run an excellent campaign.

Jacinda and Kelvin are a powerful

leadership team who have the

ability to connect with people on

a personal level.

We know that we have to run

the campaign of our lives. We

intend to do just that.

As a party, we have huge

aspirations for New Zealand. A

place where everyone has a roof

over their head and meaningful

work, where education is free

and good ideas flourish, where

children live surrounded by

creativity not poverty, and

where we build a reputation as

world leaders on environmental

issues.

The good news for us here in

Canterbury is that Jacinda and

Kelvin understand, just as Andrew

did, that Christchurch has

to be a continued focus for any

Government.

The job is not complete in our

recovery and we need to remove

the roadblocks allowing us to

flourish.

Mental health, getting our

houses fixed, and making sure

there are permanent schools for

our children will be front and

centre for a Labour government.

We will be looking to future

and building a city that builds a

rail public transport system ready

for the 21st-century.

An end to unfair treatment?

THIS WEEK’S decision of the NZ

Court of Appeal in favour of the

‘Quake Outcasts’ hopefully brings

to an end the unfair treatment

applied to people who were ‘red

zoned’ and were uninsured on

February 22, 2011.

Two years ago the Supreme

Court ruled the decision to treat

these people differently from

everyone else in the ‘red zone’ was

unlawful.

The Government thought

it could retrospectively do a

recovery plan that continued to

discriminate against people who

weren’t insured, in spite of the fact

that insurance had nothing to do

with the zoning of their land. The

Government said it was a ‘moral

hazard’ to pay out people who

were uninsured.

The city council made a strong

submission on the draft recovery

plan for equal treatment – it was

an area-wide decision and needed

an area-wide solution.

In our submission, we compared

two uninsured properties

– one in the ‘green zone’ and the

other in the ‘red zone’.

The home in the ‘green zone’

could of course be repaired and

many were – without insurance.

Habitat for Humanity made no

judgements about why families

were uninsured – they just needed

help.

The then governor-general,

who was the patron for Habitat

for Humanity, said at the time:

“Some of [the people Habitat for

Humanity are helping] are at their

wits’ end.

For them, there seems to be

no way for their problems to be

resolved, and then to have these

strangers turn up at the doorstep

full of compassion and wanting to

help them, it’s fantastic and moving,

and for most of them it does

get emotional.”

The Government’s decision left

these homeowners in a position

where even the charitable sector

couldn’t step in to help. The Court

of Appeal repeated the Supreme

Court’s findings by highlighting

that a number of the Quake

Outcasts group could not be

described as making a “conscious

choice” not to insure their properties.

Here’s one example – a couple

who had overlooked changing

insurance cover into their name

because of stress from a cancer diagnosis

and caring for dependent

family members.

This couple was uninsured at

the time of the September 4, 2010,

earthquake and their insurance

company had refused cover even

though they had had insurance

with the company since 1972.

Let us hope that this is the end

of the matter and that the Government

steps up with a further

offer that truly helps people move

on.

•If you want to ask Ms

Dalziel a question, email

mayor@ccc.govt.nz. Put

Reader’s Question in the

subject line.

Trying to sell your vehicle

on the side of the road

could soon be illegal as

part of a new city council

bylaw

John Stone – Hasn’t the

council got anything better

to do? Private sales of vehicles

on the side of the road doesn’t

hurt anyone. If its really creates

“hazards and distractions”

then the council would need to

ban sales of cherries, firewood,

flowers and fruit from the side of

the road too. While they are at

it, they can also ban billboards,

hoardings and posters during

council elections. They are

particularly dangerous.

Scotty Wilson – If I want to

advertise my car for sale I will,

it’s a free country.

Jessica M Saunders – I

think it’s good for busy streets.

I hate it when a guy parks cars

for sale on Hills Rd. There is

already limited street parking

and it’s difficult to see around

the parked cars.

Joy Scarlett – About time,

Riccarton Rd is becoming a joke

. . . why hasn’t the city council

stopped it before now?

Paul Meikle – Typical

council stupidity and a chance

to raise revenue.

Steven Blomfield – It’s

getting truly pathetic, the city

council has far too much power.

I’ll sell my car where and how I

want.

Conrad Fitz-Gerald –

Good to see the council’s got the

big problems sorted.

Scotty Wilson – It seriously

has nothing better to, does it?

We said:

Lee Nicholls – The Amish

would of got stuck in and finish

the job like four years ago for

a fraction of the cost. We have

to go through the process of

consultants and other pen

pushers sucking up heaps of

cash first.

Lynn Mortlock – As a

Cantabarian, I think it has merit

but I doubt the Canadian would.

Leonie Underdown – I just

wish they would get it sorted. I

cried when I saw it last year and

nothing has been done since.

Collins is adamant she will

You said:

Andrew Lamont – Sounds

like the typical New Zealander.

All full of good intentions until

they have to actually do what

they say they’ll do.

Michelle Hardy – Sounds

like she’s been conned into the

same email I got. This women

is probably paying money to

get the inheritance released. I

myself decided to not go ahead

with wanting $42 million so I

deleted the email. I feel sorry

for Maddie and her family.

Unfortunately, this lady really

believes she is getting that

money.

Grada Dixon – Wonder

if she’s waiting for that large

sum of money from Nigeria

lol. Seriously though, hope this

young lady gets the treatment.

blood group do you need to be

to be able to even offer a chance

to help.

QUESTION

I fed my camellia

plants a few weeks

ago with the right

food. I have three side

by side. One has

dropped all the leaves

and budding up again.

What would have

caused that?

Today’s winning

question came

from Mary Sefton.

ANSWER

GARDENING

ADVICE with

Camellias, as with almost all plants, should only be fertilised during the growing season

which is roughly from late October until late April. When fertiliser is applied without any

uptake of nutrients by the plant, it is possible that excess soluble salts have built up in

the rootzone. In many instances, this can lead to leaf fall and sometimes death of a plant. You are lucky that

the plant is budding up again. Possibly in your case, heavy winter rains may well have diluted the fertiliser and

therefore the possibility of a fatal outcome.

What better way to celebrate Christmas than with a homemade

pavlova covered in strawberries you’ve grown yourself. Start planting

now and they’ll be ready to munch on in no time! With a Daltons

Premium Strawberry Pack, your strawberries will be the best in town.

We have a Daltons Premium Strawberry Pack

to give away, full of everything you need to

grow juicy red strawberries.

Valued at over $70, it contains:

• 2 x Daltons Garden Time Strawberry Mix

• Daltons Strawberry Fertiliser

• Daltons Organic Bio-Fungicide Powder

• PLUS a pair of comfortable,

versatile Red Back gardening

gloves from Omni Products

(www.omniproducts.co.nz)

BE IN

TO WIN!

$70

PRIZE

PACK!

Adding compost around the base of the plant will be benefi cial for the camellia’s

spring growth. Make sure to also apply light side dressings of Daltons Premium

Acid Fertiliser in spring, until the tree has shown that it has fully recovered.

Plant colourful kowhai in your native garden

Veronica Armstrong says

the colours of some

of our favourite native

plants are a welcome

signal of the new season

THE HERALD of spring in

the native garden has to be

the sunshine yellow kowhai

(Sophora species) – even its

name means yellow.

Its lovely flowers have led to

kowhai being considered our

national flower.

Admittedly, this tree or large

shrub can look quite drab

for most of the year, but at

springtime it comes into its own

by bursting into beautiful yellow

flowers.

I have a smaller-growing

cultivar, Sophora molloyi

‘Dragon’s Gold’, which is more

shrub-like in size and this

flowers in late winter. This year

it started flowering as early as

June, perhaps due to our milder

autumn.

Kowhai are significant to

Maori and the flowering on

bare branches, before the leaves

appear, was a signal that winter

was over, frosts were past and it

was time to plant the kumara.

The nectar in the tubular

yellow flowers is keenly awaited

by our nectar-loving birds, the

tui, bellbird, kaka and kereru

who flock to the trees. I have

counted as many as 20 tui in a

neighbouring large old kowhai in

spring.

After flowering the seeds form

in pods that hang down from the

branches.

The seeds usually need

scarification (abrasive rubbing to

allow water into the seeds) before

germinating. This can happen

when seeds pass through the gut

of birds, too.

The trees do self-seed and I

often find seedlings popping up

in the garden that can be potted

up.

Unusually for New Zealand

trees, some species of kowhai are

deciduous and lose their tiny,

green leaves in winter. Other

species have a juvenile stage of

densely tangled branches before

reaching tree size and starting to

flower.

The only downside to growing

kowhai is to take care as all parts

of the tree are poisonous, as are

so many of our garden plants.

Theatre/Arts

West End actor tells deportation story

Deported written by Nic Kyle

Coffin written by Elliott Langsdon

Christ’s College Old Boys’ Theatre

Reviewed by Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

HAVING A home-grown performer

make a successful career on London’s

West End is no doubt a rarity.

And when Nic Kyle puts on an original

one-man show and premiers a West End

show for the first time in the country,

how could any theatre-enthusiast not

want to go?

Yet, unfortunately, Kyle’s performance

attracted a tiny audience on Saturday.

No surprises in a rugby-mad country –

the Crusaders v Chiefs semi-final clearly

won out over Kyle’s slick, hilarious show.

Although no one really showed up to

that either, so I guess everyone decided

to stay home on what was a cold winter

night.

But the small audience wouldn’t have

discouraged Kyle after the trials and

tribulations he has been through during

his four-year stint in London. And the

performance about his overseas experience

was spectacular.

Having little money, facing endless auditions

in front of often unfriendly panels

and getting deported from the United

Kingdom made perfect content for Kyle’s

original one-man show, Deported.

Accompanied by Richard Marrett on

the piano, Kyle sings and narrates his

hilarious tales which include demanding

the attention of a disinterested Game of

Thrones cast by telling them to put their

hands on their heads.

When you hear Kyle sing, you can

understand why he stood a better chance

than most of having a crack at success on

the West End.

Having a strong, crystalline voice, each

song Kyle sung in relevance to his story

in London was a treat to hear.

I was only surprised Kyle didn’t give

more reason during his performance as

to why he was deported from the United

Kingdom, especially considering it was

what the show was named after.

The second half of the show, writer Elliott

Langsdon’s dark comedy Coffin, was

absolute gold.

Audiences were lucky to be the first

in the country to see it after a sell-out

season in London.

The most inappropriate and rudest

jokes come out in the show about three

argumentative brothers waiting for their

father’s funeral to begin.

However, you’d have to be cursed with

no sense of humour to not find the show

funny.

Punch-ups, jokes about each others

love life and endless insults make for

non-stop laughter. None are appropriate

to share in this forum but don’t let that

put you off.

Kyle, along with Christchurch performers

Matt Hudson and Jack Marshall,

each brought their own strengths to the

show.

A combination of Kyle as the painfully

annoying brother, along with Hudson’s

poncey persona and Marshall’s pushover

character, had the audience screaming

with laughter.

One can only pray this show comes

back to the city again, because it is the

funniest production I’ve ever seen.

Hollyford Track – a walk in the park

• By Mike Yardley

DREAM OF embarking on an

unforgettable trek in Fiordland?

Earlier this year I lost my

multi-day hiking virginity, undertaking

a three-day guided walk

on the Hollyford Track with Ngai

Tahu Tourism.

It’s the only major low altitude

track in Fiordland National Park

– ideal for newbies like me.

Add to that the lure of well-appointed

private lodges with twin

share rooms, piping hot showers,

flush toilets, first-rate cuisine,

jet boats and chopper rides, and

these all-inclusive indulgences

soften any qualms about physical

discomfort.

In spite of that, I had spent

several weeks getting “trampready”,

hauling a backpack with

bricks in it, all over the Port Hills.

In hindsight, my training was

far more arduous than the actual

hike, itself.

Truth be told, it’s a walk in the

park. Our lead guide was Justin,

a gregarious 30-year-old with

a disarming, free-spirited Kiwi

demeanour. He was like a walking,

talking wilderness Wikipedia,

with a trusting, first-hand sense of

authority, knowledge and reverence

for the natural realm.

In spite of Fiordland’s notoriety

for high rainfall, the weather gods

were on their best behaviour as

the sun was blazing and the mercury

was nudging 25 deg C.

Beneath the exalted gaze of the

serrated Southern Alps, our first

day’s assignment followed the

crisp, swift blue-green waters of

the Hollyford River, on a gently

undulating track through native

beech forest, along the valley at

the base of the steep and darkforested

slopes of the Darren

Mountains.

Refuge from that beaming sun

soon unfurled as we walked in

dappled light under the cooling

shade of the vast canopy of beech

and ferns.

The pace was leisurely as Justin

brought to life the fascinating history,

geology, botany and ecology

of the Hollyford.

Sections of ribbonwood and

podocarp forest, liberally draped

in mosses, ferns and lichens,

added great variety and texture to

the dominance of the silver beech,

before the relatively flat track

served up a short climb over Little

Homer Saddle.

With an elevation of 182m, it

was entirely manageable, after

which we took in the gushing cascades

of Little Homer Falls ahead

of the day’s triumphant finish line

of Pyke Lodge.

As the lodge shuffled into

view, a frisson of ecstasy rippled

through my body, as lodge hosts,

Jesse and Skye, warmly greeted us

on the lawn with an inviting tray

of thirst-quenchers.

After settling in to our private

rooms and savouring a steaming

hot shower, we retired to the

lodge lounge, to be showered

again, with an evening of pampered

hospitality.

I gazed out the window at the

dreamy view of Mt Madeleine,

tinged in pink, as the lowering

sun spangled her peak.

Dinner was a delight, headlined

by a succulent venison steak and

drool-worthy lemon tart. As

much as I was ready to fall into

a deep sleep, Justin had a playful

nocturnal encounter lined up for

willing night owls.

We followed Justin by torchlight

to the banks of the Hollyford

River, where a voracious feeding

frenzy fast ensued, as he fed the

native eels the leftovers from the

evening’s venison.

They’re possibly the best fed

eels in New Zealand, growing 3m

long – and some are 70-years-old.

This frenetic riverside exposition,

alongside the glow worms and

a powdered sky of bright stars,

brought the curtain down on a

cracking day.

UNSPOILT: Fiordland’s

Hollyford Valley offers

magnificent views. Right – At

the end of a day’s tramping, a

venison steak at Pyke Lodge

was delightful.

FAST FACTS

The Hollyford Track is

a three-day easy-paced

walk, across 43km, from the

mountains to the sea. The

walk is suitable for all ages

– it’s particularly popular

with 40-70 year olds. This

is ‘glamping’, or glamorous

tramping so you carry little

and are well catered to.

Expert guides, top-knotch

cuisine, comfortable lodges

with private bedrooms,

transport from Queenstown

or Te Anau, day packs and

rain jackets are included

in the price. Hikers carry a

light pack with clothing and

lunch on their first day and

thereafter an even lighter

day pack. A maximum

number of 16 guests

provides for a fabulously

personal experience.

The guided walk departs

every second day from

mid-October to late April.

Book well in advance! For

IT’S CARS such as the Kia

Optima that we are going

to see a lot more of on Kiwi

roads when the Australian

motor vehicle manufacturing

industry shuts down at

the end of this year.

The Optima is a large

four-door sedan which has

already proven its worth

here in New Zealand and

stands out for its clean,

bold coupe-like styling and

large car attitude, especially

with the amount of

onboard space it offers.

If it is just the need for

extra pizzaz that’s standing

between you and buying

the Optima – now is your

chance to pick up a GT

version – although you’d

better be quick, for the

turbocharged 2-litre model

is only available in limited

numbers.

Yes, instead of getting the

2.4-litre engine of its stablemates,

the GT gets a 1998cc

turbo unit which is rated

with a healthy 180kW and

350Nm. The four-cylinder

engine is a smart piece of

kit, not only does it give

solid boost for lively performance

– 0-100km/h in

7.4sec and a 240km/h top

speed – the engine is also

rated with an 8.5l/100km

(33mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage average.

These are healthy figures

all round and result in solid

overall performance. If

you are a driver who likes

to hear what an engine is

doing, Kia has also manufactured

engine sound so

that an angry howl enters

the cockpit when it is getting

a bit of a workout.

There are times when I

think that sound doesn’t

need to be so audible, such

as when battling the city

street traffic, but it is quite

melodic when the high

country back roads beckon.

On a filthy late June

weekend I took the test

car on a run up to Terrace

Downs. The roads were

drenched, so I was quite

circumspect as to how

KIA OPTIMA GT: True touring car.

quickly I pushed the evaluation

car. Nevertheless, I’m

of the opinion the Optima

is worthy of a GT badge, it

covers ground quickly and

handles with much dignity.

The GT variant rides

on high quality Michelin

Pilot tyres and they have

a wide footprint at 235/45

x 18in. Given its familycar

dynamics, the Optima

in this form steers with

directional accuracy greater

than I was expecting, and

it has suspension control

which is still well biased

towards comfort.

• Price – Kia Optima

GT, $53,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4855mm;

width, 1860mm;

height, 1465mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1998cc,

180kW, 350Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.4sec

• Fuel usage –

8.5l/100km

However, at just under

1.5m tall, the Optima sits

low on the road and isn’t

bothered by directional

change. Gravitational force

doesn’t load the suspension

and that is the bonus of a

fully independent set-up.

Drive is directed through

to the front wheels, but

there’s a neutrality associated

with the way the GT

handles; I’m not saying it

has the perfect feel but it

has been engineered so that

LOADED: The Kia Optima GT is full of specification.

the driver gets a lot of satisfaction.

That taking into account,

too, the surge of power

from the engine, which is

not blisteringly fast, but

does have a strong torque

pattern as a result of the

boost process. It feels fluid

and smooth through the

mid-range and doesn’t

lurch the transmission.

The six-speed automatic

is easily capable of handling

the power outputs

and seemingly to always

have the correct ratio

selected to enhance performance.

Since turbocharging has

become fashionable again,

I’ve written many times

how it is not so much a

way to glean performance,

but it is also a way to even

the power outputs so that

fuel burn is not wasted.

During my four days with

the test car it was showing

a constant 10.5l/100km

(26mpg) combined cycle

average along with a

7l/100km (40mpg) instantaneous

figure sitting at

a steady 100km/h cruise

(engine speed 1750rpm).

Inside, the Optima is also

a class act. It has a specification

level which would

sit well in a luxury car and

would seem amazing value

for a vehicle which lists at

just $53,990.

Major features on the GT

include full leather trim

with heated and cooling

front seats, heated steering

wheel, satellite navigation,

paddle-shift gearbox

levers, panoramic roof,

keyless entry and ignition,

radar cruise control,

and a whole alphabet soup

of safety kit which not

only looks impressive on

paper but earns a five-star

Australasian New Car

Assessment Program rating.

The Optima GT is no

pretender, it is a fine sporttourer

worthy of the badge.

If you are a buyer, be prepared

for a bit of a wait,

it needs to be placed on

indent order.

Magic Man takes premiership in his stride

IN THE quiet and unassuming

manner that he brings to his

daily life, this season’s national

premiership winning jockey

Chris Johnson is relatively

matter of fact about what he has

achieved in the past 12 months.

It is Canterbury-based Johnson’s

second premiership after

first topping the ladder in the

1995-96 season.

While Johnson’s tally of 112

winners for the season fell

short of the 139 he notched up

in his first title 21 years earlier,

for the 53-year-old, the season

represented an opportunity to

continue doing the job he loves,

an endeavour which first started

back in 1980 and has seen him

amass more than 2200 winners.

“I’ve always loved racing,

although when I first started

riding I never thought I’d get to

1000 wins, let alone more than

2000,” he said.

“I have had some ups and

downs along the way, but I’ve

had the opportunity to ride

some tremendous horses and

have been lucky enough to win a

number of big races.”

One of a small band of seven

riders who have reached the

2000-win milestone in New Zealand,

Johnson has been fortunate

enough to count top gallopers

such as Tartan Tights, Loader

and Tycoon Lil among his list of

standout performers.

Pressed to nominate his most

memorable career milestone, he

says his victory aboard Sea Swift

in the 1988 Auckland Cup.

“I think that win on Sea Swift

MAGIC MAN: Chris Johnson

national jockey’s premiership

title with 112 wins during the

2016-17 season.

PHOTO: TRISH DUNELL

was something quite special,” he

said. “It was a real South Island

victory at racing headquarters in

the north so it does stand out a

bit for me.”

While he is quick to admit

he has had several low periods

throughout his career, even

giving the game away for an

extended stint between 1999

and 2006, Johnson credits some

misfortune late last year as the

motivation to achieve his second

premiership title.

“I’d started the season off

pretty well and things were going

okay when I copped a decent

suspension around Christmas

time,” he said.

“I hadn’t really come out and

confirmed I was thinking about

the premiership at that point, but

when that happened, I thought I

might have really stuffed things

up.”

Semi-retired barrister John

Tannahill, a long-time friend

who also manages Johnson’s

North Island rides, admits he

too thought the worst when an

initial six-day suspension was

extended by a further four days

after an improper riding charge

was reinstated following a special

hearing by the Judicial Control

Authority.

“Based on the rides Chris had

booked or in the pipeline, I think

he missed out on 11 winners due

to the suspension,” Tannahill

said.

It was also around that time

that leading trainers, such as

Graeme and Debbie Rogerson,

announced they would be supporting

Johnson in his bid for

the title as he attempted to gun

down the runaway leader at the

time, Danielle Johnson.

“I think when he rode Let Her

Rip to victory in the stakes race

at Rotorua, it was then we both

thought he could do it and, after

some pretty hard slog, he has,”

Tannahill said.

“Personally, I think he is riding

better than ever with his fitness

level the best it has been in many

years and pretty damn good for a

53-year-old.”

Keas battle Tigers for

place in grand-final

• By Gordon Findlater

THE LINWOOD Keas

will need to bounce back

against the Papanui Tigers

on Saturday if they are

to stay in the hunt for

consecutive Canterbury

Rugby League premiership

titles.

The Keas preliminary

final match-up against the

Tigers won’t be a walk in

the park. The Tigers were

too strong for the Celebration

Lions in their minor

semi-final winning 32-24

at the weekend.

The Tigers also defeated

the Keas 20-14 in the 2015

grand-final. However, the

Keas are yet to concede a

point at the hands of the

Tigers this season. In their

two round-robin meetings,

the Keas won 13-0 and

26-0.

“We definitely learnt

a bit from (the Tigers)

throughout the season, but

I’m expecting them to be

up for this one,” said Keas

coach Andrew Auimatagi.

“We can’t take too much

out of those two wins

against them.”

The Keas were outdone

by the Hornby Panthers

14-22 at the weekend in

their major semi-final

at Murphy Park. However,

they get a second

chance to qualify for the

grand-final in Saturday’s

match. The Panthers have

advanced directly to the

grand-final.

The Panthers are confident

the extra week off can

help them win their first

Pat Smith Trophy since

2013.

“It’s definitely a benefit

for us. Last year we had to

play the extra game and it

took a lot of our energy,”

said Panthers coach Jed

Lawrie.

“We’ll have a good

training run on Saturday

and then get along and

have a look at the Papanui

v Linwood game.”

Saturday’s preliminary

final kicks off at Murphy

Park, Kaiapoi, at 2.45pm.

Next weekend’s grandfinal

is likely to be played

at Denton Oval.

Kearney relationship crucial to Warriors Blair bid

• By Michael Burgess

ADAM BLAIR admits that, if he

leaves the Broncos, the Warriors

are a likely destination, due to

his close ties with coach Stephen

Kearney.

The current Kiwis captain is

on contract at Brisbane until the

end of next season.

But ongoing salary-cap

pressures at the Broncos may

yet force him out and persistent

speculation has linked him with

the Warriors. Blair has a close

relationship with Kearney, which

may prove to be the pivotal

factor.

He played under Kearney for

the vast majority of his 41 tests

with the national team, as well

as five years at the Storm, during

Kearney’s tenure as assistant

coach in Melbourne.

“I’m really close to ‘Mooks’

[Kearney] and I know what he

stands for. He was someone I

looked up to when I watched

league. When I first did preseasons

at the Storm, he was like

a father figure,” Blair said.

Blair worked with Kearney for

five years in Melbourne before

the pair were reunited for three

seasons at the Broncos.

“I’ve bonded with Stephen

really closely throughout my

career – at the Storm, New

Zealand and again with the

healthy change

can start with you

@healthyfamilieschristchurch

Broncos,” said Blair.

“If I was going to go anywhere,

I’d rather go somewhere where

I know it is going to be a real

professional club, similar to the

Broncos, similar to the Storm

. . . somewhere where they set

high standards for the players

and are honest with their

players.”

Blair added it was going to be a

difficult call. “It’s tough,” he said.

“I’m really happy where I am

and so is my family.

“I know there is interest from

back home and it is going to be a

hard decision, whatever I do.”

Blair has played 258 NRL

games since his debut in round

four of the 2006 season.

This season, he has averaged

50 minutes, nine carries and 77

running metres per game. He

has also recorded 22 tackles per

match.

Plenty for the Crusaders to overcome in Johannesburg

• By Liam Napier

SO MUCH of the focus around

the Crusaders naturally falls on

their exceptional pack.

This week, their quest for an

unprecedented eighth title could

well be decided by the performance

of the backline or, more

specifically, their ability to match

the Lions attack.

presents many challenges, such

as travelling over the Indian

and compresses lungs.

After spending the past two

weeks at home, where the conditions

have been tailor-made for

their forwards, the Crusaders

now face a complete contrast:

Confronting a team in the Lions

who have forged their success

on a hard, fast, dry track in the

afternoon sun.

No doubt Super Rugby’s conference

format and draw gave


the Lions a serious advantage

by allowing them to avoid Kiwi

teams until last week’s semi-final

against the Hurricanes. Thus,

granting a much easier route to a

home final. Last week, the Lions

also appeared to benefit from a

couple of dubious calls.

But their recent record against

Kiwi teams in playoff matches

at Ellis Park tells us two things:

The Lions are a formidable side

Crusaders may need to score

more than 40 points to claim

the crown. In their last three

home playoff games against New

Zealand opposition, the Lions

have scored 42 points. Johan

Ackermann’s men hammered the

Blues 43-5 at Ellis Park last year

and average 47 points across the

board at home this season.

They love to use the ball, love

to play at pace and, as the Hurricanes

discovered last week, never

stop coming.

The Crusaders defence laid

the foundation for last week’s

convincing semi-final victory

over the Chiefs. After making

117 more tackles than the Chiefs,

there may be questions about

how much they have left in the

tank, but the Crusaders will back

that same resilience to restrict

the Lions ability to quickly clock

up scoreboard pressure.

Clearly, though, the Crusaders

attack will also need to fire.

Weatherproofing tips for

your house design

Insulation and double glazed

windows are compulsory in

new homes making them

infinitely superior to their

older counterparts for warmth

yet more can be done to

weatherproof a new home.

Underfloor insulation

Foam insulated expanded polystyrene

panels under the concrete slab act as

an insulating barrier, stopping cold

coming through from under the

house.

Garages

Insulating the garage and its door will

cut down on a steady stream of cold air

sneaking into the house. An insulated

garage door can lift the temperature

substantially even when the garage

itself is not heated, making it a more

pleasant place to spend time. Any

home appliances kept in the garage

will use less electricity as they will

not have to work as hard and your car

battery may last longer.

Roof design

Roof designs vary. The simplest way

to achieve a weather tight house is

to have a simple roof design with an

overhanging surfeit. Architectural flat

roofs will work though more care is

needed to achieve weather tightness

especially where there are hidden or

back roof gutters. Having a roof with

no overhang also requires more care

with the design due to its complexity

and potential for problems. Regular

maintenance to clean out leaves and

debris that gets caught in the roof will

be advantageous in both cases.

Porticos

Taking the roof out beyond the house

is ideal for providing a sheltered area

for spending time outdoors when the

weather is inclement.

Snow straps or guttering protection

Wherever snow is a likely part of

winter, installation of snow straps is

a good idea. These prevent damage

to guttering from the weight of snow

as it slides off the roof. Alternatively,

an expanded steel mesh product such

as Gutter Guard could be fitted. This

has the added benefit of preventing

Extending the roof beyond the

house creates a sheltered area.

spouting blockages from leaf and

other debris.

Capitalise on the sun

Maximise the sun’s free energy with

plenty of windows, especially on the

north side of the house.

Outdoor areas

When choosing a house design,

consider how it will sit on the section

and whether it offers potential to catch

sun inside the home and for sunny

sheltered outdoor areas away from

prevailing winds.

Windows and doors

Upgrade on the minimum standard for

double glazing with thermally broken

joinery and low-emissivity argon gas

filled windows and doors, increasing

insulation effectiveness.

Energy efficient heating

Explore heating options, selecting

what will work best given the size of

home and family needs. Heat pumps

are an efficient form of heating with

two cassette and energy saving options

available while heat transfer systems

are great if there is a log burner.

Low-E argon gas filled double

glazing increases insulation.

we request that this form is completed, signed and returned either

in store or via email, or alternatively a quick email stating that you

have reviewed your proof, and approve for me to send it to print.

I have done my best to check all your details are correct however I’m

only human and I may have missed something, so I advise that you

double check all information thoroughly. This includes information such

as spelling, phone numbers through to dates and addresses. Please

be aware that once you sign off this proof, it is your responsibility

should anything be incorrect when your printing arrives, and any

once the job has been sent to print we are unable to pull your job from

production or make any changes to the artwork or order details, and any

reprint will be at your expense.

Colours can alter in a print run and from previous print jobs due to

various elements such as different batches of paper stock, humidity and

temperature. Colour variation is inherent in the printing process. Your

A CLUB BY

A familiar face

returns to the

Richmond Club

THAT’S right folks, Emma Palaamo has

returned to the Richmond Club Bistro, and this

time she is running it!

Emma last worked at the Club when her

parents Bev and Steve Palaamo were running

the Bistro and Restaurant pre-EQ.

Unsure of what she wanted to do when she

left school Emma decided to attend university

where she earned a degree in English and

Psychology.

“I’ve wondered if I’d ever use my degree, but I

love being in the kitchen. Cooking’s in my blood.

It’s what I’m used to,” said Emma.

Largely trained by her father, Emma said she

was nervous when she was initially offered

running the Bistro.

“My parents have such a good reputation and

I don’t want to let Dad down. The reaction to my

menu and cooking has been great, and regular

members are very happy to see me back.”

With her first few weeks spent gauging what

diners wanted, Emma is confident she has

streamlined the menu to provide a selection to

satisfy everyone.

“I’ve listened to what they want and have

taken heed. by bringing back the old with new.

I’m also doing blackboard specials and two

course specials, as well as introducing a Kids’

menu.”

The Club Bistro is open Wednesday to Sunday

for Brunch, Lunch and Dinner and is also

available for private functions.
