TWO-YEAR MYSTERY

NOW A MURDER INQUIRY

• By Star reporters

A CHRISTCHURCH man who

went missing just over two years

ago is now believed to have been

murdered.

Richard Hinkley, who was 49

when he disappeared, was last

seen at Kiwibank in Edgeware on

December 12, 2015.

But in a major development

in the past few weeks, police

have searched a property in

east Christchurch. The Star has

learned the search has confirmed

police inquiries that he has likely

been killed.

Mr Hinkley’s body was not

found during the search. Detectives

have a key suspect.

Mr Hinkley was 1.84m tall,

and of solid build, and had a

shaved head when he was last

seen. He often wore a beanie or

hat. He was last seen wearing

dark pants, a black T-shirt with

a large white pattern on the front

and a blue peaked cap with a

dark blue logo on the front.

There have been no sightings

of Mr Hinkley reported to police

since he went missing.

Police appear not to have been

aware of Mr Hinkley’s disappearance

until March 2016 when they

issued a media statement seeking

information from the public as to

his whereabouts.

At the time, police said they

were building a picture of what

may have happened to him and

were liaising with his family

who had become increasingly

concerned for his welfare.

But information received

recently opened a major line of

inquiry for detectives.

The Star yesterday attempted

to talk to detectives investigating

the Hinkley case about the

breakthrough. But they did not

respond to phone calls or emails.

The development in the

Hinkley case is similar to that of

missing Halswell man Michael

McGrath.

Mr McGrath disappeared 236

days ago. In December, after

months of investigation, police

and his family conceded Mr

McGrath was dead.

Police still list his disappearance

as a missing persons case

but they have been running

a parallel homicide case for

months.

They spent more than two

months searching the Kate

Valley landfill site for clues and

took away more than 200 pairs

of jeans, some of which will be

forensically tested.

Police also made an extensive

forensic search of a Halswell

property belonging to Mr

McGrath’s friend David Benbow.

Police said he was a person of

interest.

STEVE MCLENNAN compares

fighting fires with riding a bike:

“Once you get on it’s hard to get

off.’’

On pages 14-15 today we profile

Steve, who has been involved

with fighting fires for more than

half a century. That’s a very long

bike ride.

The likeable 70-year-old is part

of the Lincoln brigade, and one

of many firefighters around the

district who serve a vital role in

the community.

Many are volunteers, giving

their time freely to attend fires,

motor vehicle crashes and other

emergencies while we go about

or usual business, or are asleep

at night.

Their value to the community

can not be overstated enough, in

my humble opinion.

Jim Anderton’s funeral is

tomorrow (see page 7) and no

doubt it will be a full house.

Jim was great guy who had

a very good relationship with

journalists. That was because he

was a straight shooter, and would

generally always return calls.

If you were on the wrong track

with the question line, he’d put

you on the right track.

‘BAD LUCK’ WEDDING DRESS

A woman has Trade Me users in

hysterics after posting a sassy ad to sell

her “once worn by mistake” wedding

dress. The woman was married in

2013 but has since split with her

husband. She has listed the size 14

dress which is in “excellent condition

She had personally hand-washed the

Fire rages, homes at risk

Disney’s Frozen star for city

Actor here

to train

musical

theatre

students

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

THE STAR of one of the

highest-grossing animated

films of all time will be in

Christchurch this month to train

young adults and secondary

school students hoping to

pursue a career in musical

theatre.

American actor and singer

Jonathan Groff – who voiced a

leading role in Disney’s animated

film Frozen – will fly in to

teach at the Christchurch International

Music Theatre Summer

School which opens for tuition

on January 22.

One of Groff’s most famous

roles to date is that of the voice

of Kristoff in Frozen, which was

the fifth highest-grossing film in

2014, making $1.219 billion.

At the end of the theatre

programme Groff, along with

American actress and singers

Julia Murney and Andrea Burns

will bring Broadway to the city

– performing a one-off concert

on February 2 at Charles Luney

Auditorium.

Murney is best-known for

playing the original role of

Queenie in musical The Wild

Party, while Burns is a Drama

Desk Award winner – both will

teach at the school.

The school was founded by

Christchurch musical director

Luke Di Somma in 2014.

It is divided into two streams

of intensive theatre courses –

LOVEABLE: Jonathan Groff voiced the leading role of mountain man Kristoff in Disney’s

animated film Frozen.

Andrea Burns Julia Murney

one for emerging professional

performers and the other for

high schoolers.

Thirty-two emerging professional

performers and 120 secondary

school students from all

over New Zealand and Australia

will take part with spaces filled

“really quickly,” Mr Di Somma

said.

He said the city does not get a

calibre of performer like Groff

often and is excited to have him.

“It is rare to have someone like

him here,” he said.

Groff, who is a two-time Tony

Award nominee, is expected to

arrive in the city on January 25

and is expected to start work at

the school soon after.

Mr Di Somma was first

introduced to Groff by two-time

Tony Award winner Sutton

Foster – who taught at the

school in 2016.

After meeting up with Groff

in New York, Mr Di Somma

invited him to come and he

agreed.

“Getting the meeting is the

hard bit, once you offer them a

chance to come to New Zealand

it’s pretty hard to pass up,” Mr

Di Somma said.

Other tutors lined up includes

West End musical director Mark

W Dorrell, New York-based

director Peter Flynn and New

Zealand director Kip Chapman.

Groff first began to emerge

as a Broadway star in 2006 for

his performance in the original

Broadway production of Spring

Awakening.

He has since appeared in

American television series Glee,

Mindhunter and played the

lead role of King George in the

Broadway musical Hamilton.

AUTHOR, BOTANIST DIES

Well-known botanist and author

Bill Sykes passed away at Nurse

Maude Hospital on January 5,

aged 90. Among a long list of

achievements, the St Albans

man published several books,

including Flora of the Cook

Islands, co-founded of the Packe

Street Park Community Garden

with his wife Peggy Kelly and

helped establish the Friends

of the Christchurch Botanical

Gardens. A funeral service was

held for Mr Sykes on Tuesday.

SMOKE INHALED

A person was taken to

hospital after a kitchen fire in

Wainoni on Tuesday night.

Three crews were called to the

Ottawa Rd address at about

10.30pm but found the fire

had been extinguished. A fire

communications spokesman

said one person was taken to

Christchurch Hospital for smoke

SUSPICIOUS FIRE

Police are investigating a

deliberately lit fire in a derelict

building and garage in the central

city on Tuesday night. Fire crews

were called to the Armagh St

property at about 11.10pm and

found a number of small fires.

Specialist fire investigator Bruce

Irvine told The Star there are

signs of forced entry and the fires

were deliberately lit. “It is a

significant concern for us as it

is a red-stickered building, so

that creates a significant risk for

our firefighters when they have to

enter these buildings,” he said.

‘Lucky’ to walk away

Fewer crashes in central city

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE NUMBER of crashes and

injuries in the central city has

reduced since the speed limit

was dropped to 30km/h more

than a year ago.

Data compiled by ViaStrada

senior traffic engineer and transport

planner Glen Koorey shows

there have been 17 per cent fewer

crashes, and

a 22 per cent

reduction in

injuries.

In March

2016, the

city council

dropped the

Glen Koorey

speed limit

from 50km/h

to 30km/h on streets between,

but not including, Kilmore,

Madras and St Asaph Sts.

The move, which was part

of An Accessible City, received

mixed reactions. Some said it

would slow progress, while others

said it would make the area

safer.

Dr Koorey, a former Canterbury

University transport

engineering senior lecturer, has

compiled crash and injury data

for the area from the last four

years.

He gathered the figures from

the New Zealand Transport

Agency’s crash analysis data to

see if there had been a change.

It showed between September

2014 and February 2016, there

were 73 crashes in the area, and

36 injuries.

That dropped to 60 crashes

since the new limit was put in

place and 28 injuries.

In other central city streets

that still have a 50km/h speed

limit, the number of crashes had

increased.

Dr Koorey said the increase

could reflect unnecessary traffic

shifting, although he had not

compared traffic volumes yet so

did not want to speculate.

He said because more businesses

and shops opening were

bringing more people and traffic

into the central city, he did

not initially expect a drop in

crashes.

But Dr Koorey said he was

pleasantly surprised.

“It’s early days and I’d like to

see how the trends goes for a bit

longer (two to three years), but

it’s an encouraging sign given

that a key reason for introducing

lower speeds is for road safety.”

City councillor Sara Temple-

POSITIVE:

The lower

speed

limit in the

central city,

such as on

Montreal St,

has reduced

the number

of crashes

and injuries

in the first 18

months since

the change.

PHOTO:

MARTIN

HUNTER

ton said the 30km/h limit not

only made the roads safer, but it

meant motorists noticed more

shops and businesses opening

up.

“It was quite controversial at

the time, there was a lot of negative

comments on social media

about that change,” she said.

“What this shows is that the

decision was based on best international

practice and the local

data backs that up.”

The city council has been lowering

speed limits in other parts

of the city, including along the

new cycleway routes.

Funeral open to public

JIM ANDERTON’S son Chris

says he has been overwhelmed

with support after his father’s

death at the weekend.

And for those who cannot

attend the public funeral today,

it is being streamed live on

YouTube.

Writing on Facebook, Chris

Anderton thanked people for

the messages of supported he

had received: “They uplift me.”

Mr Anderton was two weeks

shy of his 80th birthday when he

died peacefully in Christchurch.

He served as the Sydenham and

Wigram MP from 1984 until his

retirement from Parliament in

2011.

A Requiem Mass will be held

for Mr Anderton at Sacred Heart

Catholic Church, 70 Spencer St,

Addington, at 2pm.

Prime Minister Jacinda

Ardern, who will attend the

funeral, called Anderton a man

of “huge integrity, huge compassion,

a man who stood strongly

for what he believed in and gave

40 years of service both in local

government and central government”.

“He will be sadly, sadly missed

by the Labour movement and by

SADLY MISSED: Jim Anderton at the ceremony last year in

which he received a Companion of the New Zealand Order of

Merit.

all his friends and family.”

His Labour successor in Wigram,

Cabinet Minister Megan

Woods, is also expected to

attend, as well as Finance Minister

Grant Robertson, Labour

Party general secretary Andrew

Kirton, and Council of Trade

Unions general secretary Sam

Huggard.

Close friend and former MP

Matt Robson, who served in Parliament

from 1996 to 2005 with

Mr Anderton’s Alliance Party

‘A man who stood

strongly for what he

believed in and gave 40

years of service . . . ’

– Jacinda Ardern

and then the Progressive Party,

will be one of the speakers.

Mr Anderton’s legacy has been

praised since his death, from his

principled stance in 1989 when

he left the Labour Party in protest

over Rogernomics and the

sale of BNZ, to his championing

MMP as leader of Alliance.

His work in the Helen Clarkled

Government included

helping to set up Kiwibank,

the NZ Superannuation Fund,

paid parental leave, and several

regional development initiatives

such as the Marlborough Wine

Research Centre.

After he retired, he served as

chair of the Stadium Trust and

pushed for the rebuild of Christ

Church Cathedral.

Last year Mr Anderton was

made a Companion of the New

Zealand Order of Merit for services

to Parliament.

He will be buried on Waiheke

Island on Saturday.

Chch Airport

sets record

for passengers

CHRISTCHURCH Airport

recorded its busiest month ever in

December.

Statistics revealed the number of

passengers through the terminal

was the highest for any month on

record.

Chief aeronautical and

commercial officer Justin Watson

said 638,043 passengers used

the terminal during December,

up 4.8 per cent on the previous

December.

“This equates to more than the

entire population of Canterbury

and the West Coast through the

terminal during the past month

alone,” he said.

“New services or larger

aircraft are now flying between

Christchurch and Guangzhou,

Hong Kong, Perth, Melbourne,

Sydney, Brisbane, Pacific Islands,

as well as domestically within

New Zealand.”

International arrivals led the

December growth, with a 7.7 per

cent increase across the month.

The largest increases came on

long-haul flights from Asia, with

China up 41 per cent, Hong Kong

79 per cent, India 26 per cent and

South Korea 23 per cent.

HISTORY WOULD suggest that

over the next three weeks we will

be lucky enough to get an early

glimpse at some of cricket’s next

superstars.

You only need to look back to

the last time New Zealand hosted

the tournament in 2010.

Back then, Christchurch

hosted a match between New

Zealand and England.

The New Zealand team

featured now established internationals

Tom Latham, Jimmy

Neesham, Corey Anderson,

Doug Bracewell and recent test

debutant Tom Blundell.

The England team on that day

also had a few names you may

recognise in the form of Joe Root

and Ben Stokes.

We have the best opportunity

to enjoy the tournament with 26

of the 48 matches taking place

across Hagley Oval, Lincoln

University and Rangiora Oval.

Possibly the best news of all is

that entry to every game is free.

Christchurch will also play a

major role at the business end of

the tournament. Both semi-finals

will be held at Hagley Oval on

January 29 and 30.

New Zealand will be looking

to win the tournament for the

their favour. The major nations

are expected to rise to the top.

Only Australia (3), India (3), Pakistan

(2), England, South Africa,

and the West Indies have won

the tournament which has been

running since 1988.

One team worth keeping an

eye on will be Afghanistan.

Their squad features two players

who already have experience in

their nation’s senior team. They

recently won the Under-19 Asia

Cup, defeating Pakistan in the

final. Afghanistan also made an

impression in the 2016 World

Cup where they won the plate

final.

BIG HITTER: Prithvi

Shaw’s run-scoring

feats have seen him

compared to Sachin

Tendulkar at the

same age.

Players to keep

•Prithvi Shaw – India: The

three time champions have one

of the most seasoned batsmen

around in captain Prithvi Shaw.

THe 18-year-old, who first

came into prominence when he

hit 546 in an inter-school match

in Mumbai in 2013, now has five

first-class centuries against his

name.

Shaw scored a century in the

second innings of his Ranji

debut and followed it up by

scoring another century in his

debut Duleep Trophy game – a

feat only previously achieved by

Sachin Tendulkar.

•Mujeeb Zadran –

Afghanistan: Zadran’s 4-24 in

his one-day international debut

against Ireland brought him

into the spotlight, even though

he had already helped his side

win the Under-19 Asia Cup with

figures of 6-28 in the semi-final

against Nepal and 5-13 in the

final against Pakistan. Perhaps

most impressive of all is the fact

Zadran is only 16-years-old.

Spring Festival

the “Chinese Christmas”

With the Christmas season coming to an end, the Chinese

communities will soon celebrate another important festival

of their own, the Chinese New Year, also known the Spring

Festival. The significance of Spring Festival to them equals that

of Christmas to Westerners. It will be worthwhile to know a bit

about this “Chinese Christmas” as the celebrations draw close.

Spring Festival as the Chinese New Year is celebrated at the

turn of the lunar Chinese calendar. Celebrations run from

the evening preceding the first day, to the Lantern Festival on

the 15th day of the

first calendar month.

The first day of the

New Year falls on the

new moon between

16th February to

2nd March. In 2018,

the first day of the

Chinese New Year is

on 16th February.

The Spring Festival is centuries old and traditionally the

festival is a time to honor deities as well as ancestors. It is also

celebrated in countries and territories with significant Chinese

populations, including Southeast Asia, North America,

Australia and New Zealand.

Mythology

According to tales and legends, the beginning of the Chinese

New Year started with a mythical beast called the Nian.

Nian would eat villagers, especially children. One year, all

the villagers decided to go hide from the beast. An old man

appeared before the villagers went into hiding and said that

he would stay for the night, and decided to get revenge on

the Nian. All the villagers thought he was insane. The old

man put red papers up and set off firecrackers. The day after,

the villagers came back to their town to see that nothing was

destroyed. They assumed that the old man was a deity who

came to save them. The villagers then understood that the

Nian was afraid of the red color and loud noises. When the

New Year was about to come, the villagers would wear red

clothes, hang red

lanterns, and red

spring scrolls

on windows

and doors.

People also used

firecrackers to

frighten away the

Nian. From then

on, Nian never

came to the

village again.

Customs and Traditions

With the Spring Festival coming, it is

traditional for every family to thoroughly

cleanse the house, in order to sweep away

any ill-fortune and make way for good

incoming luck. Windows and doors will

be decorated with red color paper-cuts

and couplets with popular themes of

“good fortune” or “happiness”, “wealth”,

and “longevity”.

The first day is for the welcoming of the deities of the heavens

and earth, officially beginning at midnight. It is a traditional

practice to light fireworks to make as much of a din as possible

to chase off the evil

spirits.

Most importantly, the

first day of Chinese

New Year is a time

to honor one's elders

and families visit

the oldest and most

senior members of

their extended families, usually their parents, grandparents

and great-grandparents. Some families may invite a lion dance

troupe as a symbolic ritual to usher in the Chinese New Year as

well as to evict bad spirits from the premises.

Members of the family who are

married also give red envelopes

containing cash known as

Hongbao (Mandarin) or lai see

(Cantonese dialect), a form of

blessings, to junior members of

the family, mostly children and

teenagers. Business managers

also give bonuses through red packets to employees for good

luck, smooth-sailing, good health and wealth.

Family Reunion Dinner

Nian Ye Fan(Grand Dinner on New Year's Eve) is held on

New Year's Eve during which family members gather for

celebration. The venue will usually be in or near the home

of the most senior member of the family. Family members

far away from home will manage to come back, regardless of

long-distance travel, so the "Grand Dinner on New Year's Eve"

is also called "Family Reunion Dinner". Every family will make

the dinner the most sumptuous and ceremonious one in the

year. Hostesses will fetch out foodstuffs prepared in early time

and all family members will sit

together and make dumplings in

jollification. In most areas, fish

(yú) is included in the dinner, as

the Chinese phrase “may there

be surpluses every year”(nián

nián yǒu yú) sounds the same as

“let there be fish every year.”

Gift Exchange

In addition to red envelopes, which are usually given from

older people to younger people, small gifts (usually food

or sweets) are also exchanged between friends or relatives

(of different households) during Chinese New Year. Gifts

are usually brought when visiting friends or relatives at

their homes. Common gifts include fruits, cakes, biscuits,

chocolates, and candies. Certain items should not be given, as

they are considered taboo. Taboo gifts include: items associated

with funerals (i.e. handkerchiefs, towels, chrysanthemums,

items colored white and black);items that show that time

is running out (i.e. clocks and watches);sharp objects that

symbolize cutting a tie (i.e. scissors and knives);items that

symbolize that you want to walk away from a relationship

This advertorial page is supported by The Chinese Consulate

(i.e.: shoes and

sandals);mirrors;

homonyms for

unpleasant topics

(i.e.: “pear” sounds

like “separate”, and

“umbrella” sounds

like “fall apart” in

Chinese).

Clothing

Clothing mainly featuring the

color red or bright colors is

commonly worn throughout

the Chinese New Year because

it was once believed that red

could scare away evil spirits

and bad fortune. In addition,

people typically wear new

clothes from head to toe to

symbolize a new beginning in

the new year.

Greetings

The Chinese New Year is often accompanied by loud,

enthusiastic greetings of auspicious words or phrases. Some

of the most common greetings include guònián Hǒo(happy

new year), gōngxǒfācái (Congratulations and be prosperous),

and wànshìrúyì(May all your wishes be fulfilled). Children

and teenagers sometimes jokingly use the phrase gōngxǒfācái

hóngbāo nálái(congratulations and be prosperous, now give

me a red envelope).

Chinese Shengxiao

It is also worth mentioning that the coming Chinese lunar New

Year is the year of dog. It has something to do with the Chinese

animal zodiac, or shengxiao (“born resembling”) which is a

repeating cycle of 12 years, with each year being represented by

an animal and its reputed attributes. Traditionally these zodiac

animals were used to date the years. In order, the 12 animals

are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat,

Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.

Dog is man’s good friend who can understand the human’s

spirit and obey its master whether he is wealthy or not, so the

year of the Dog is one of understanding, faith and devotion.

The Chinese regard the dog as an auspicious animal. If a

dog happens to come to a house, usually the host will be

very glad to adopt it for it symbolizes the coming of fortune.

The invincible God Erlang in Chinese legend used a loyal

wolfhound to help him capture monsters.

The City Council and the Chinese communities will hold

a series of celebrations during the Spring Festival season in

Christchurch every year, including the popular Lanterns Show.

We welcome you to join the gala, and wish you all have a

merry “Chinese Christmas” and a prosperous year of dog.

GOOD TIMES THIS

SUMMER

Historic homestead rises again

WORK WILL start this month

on rebuilding the historic

Risingholme homestead in

Opawa.

The 153-year-old building,

which was home to a community

centre in Cholmondeley Ave,

was damaged in the September

4, 2010, and February 22, 2011,

earthquakes, forcing it to close.

Risingholme then sustained

further damage in an arson attack

in June, 2016.

The fire came a year after

community centre staff told Star

Media they were concerned the

building was a “sitting duck” for

vandals and feared it would be

burnt to the ground.

When the arson attack happened,

the city council was

preparing to seek tenders for the

building’s repair.

The fire ripped through

the roof and top storey of

the heritage-listed building

and caused so much damage

part of the upstairs had to be

deconstructed.

The building was wrapped to

protect it and prevent further

damage from occurring while

engineers and heritage experts

worked to develop a plan for

restoring it.

by an arson attack in 2016. (Above right) – The building was

“Right from the start, the goal

has been to get Risingholme

back to the way it was but

we’ve had to work through

a number of issues,

including the fire, and obtain

building and resource

consents before work

on-site could begin,’’ city

council heritage rebuild

programme manager

Richie Moyle said.

“Those consents have all now

been obtained and the contractors,

Cook Brothers, are ready

to begin work later this

month. They’re going to be

rebuilding the top storey

and strengthening and

repairing the remainder of

the building to bring it up

to 67 per cent of the New

Building Standard.”

Mr Moyle said as much

of the heritage fabric of the

original building as possible

The Risingholme Community

Centre was originally built in

1864 as a private residence

by William and Mary Reeves,

the parents of noted politician

William Pember Reeves.

•After the death of Mr Reeves

in 1891, the house had

several private owners until

1943 when it was bought

by philanthropist Sir John

McKenzie, who gifted it to the

city council for the “health,

amusement and instruction

of the public.’’

would be reinstated.“The project

is probably going to take most of

the year to complete but when

it is done Risingholme will be

back to its former glory.’’

The Risingholme hall and craft

workshops, which date back to the

1940s and 1950s, are also going to

be refurbished and strengthened.

Work on those buildings is

expected to start next month and

take about nine months.

Orangutans

feast on

PRUNED FOLIAGE from the

Botanic Gardens is being fed to

orangutans at Orana Wildlife Park

to liven up their diet.

Two loads of foliage from the

gardens that would otherwise have

been dumped as green waste have

already been delivered to Orana at

McLeans Island.

It included a goody bag of

mulberry, roses, day lilies,

bamboo, elm, kawakawa, mahoe

apes in December. Fern fronds and

banana palm leaves were provided

for them to play with.

The Great Ape Centre at Orana

has three orangutans – Charlie,

37, and two females Melur, 27, and

Wanita, 39, who arrived in late

November. They will live at the

park for two years while Auckland

Zoo builds its South-east Asian

precinct. “For the orangutans

. . . there isn’t as much tropical

plant material here as there was in

Auckland for them. Even if we can

provide a few banana palm leaves,

that provides some variety and

enrichment benefits for them,’’ said

Fire rages, homes at risk

Boat hire business set for return to The Groynes

• By Julia Evans

HIRE BOATS may soon be back

on the lake at The Groynes as an

urgent meeting has been called

to approve licencing.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

recess committee will hold

an extraordinary meeting

on Monday to approve

the operating licence for

The Groynes Boat Hire on

Recreation Lake.

Phill Hanrahan took over the

Johns Rd business in July. The

previous owners did not have

a licence to operate, so the city

council said he could not open

until one was issued.

After several delays to the

process and almost walking

away from the business

altogether, Mr Hanrahan said he

was “very happy” to receive an

email from city council staff on

Tuesday letting him know the

meeting had been scheduled.

However, he said he would

not be pulling out

the champagne

prematurely. “We’ve

been here before . . .

we’ve had our hopes

built up before. So

we’ll just wait and see

what the outcome is,”

he said.

Community board

chairman David

Cartwright said it was

good news that the issue was

David

Cartwright

getting close to a resolution.

“I feel for the couple

. . . but you can’t operate

a business unlicensed,”

he said.

Mr Cartwright, a

business owner himself,

said if a child ended up

drowning or any type

of accident occurred

and the boat hire was

unlicensed, the city

council would be liable.

“It’s unfortunate he’s had to

jump through a few hoops but

we’re moving forward with it

now,” Mr Cartwright said.

The recess committee is made

up of Mr Cartwright, board

member Aaron Campbell and

city councillor Aaron Keown.

A staff report said a monthby-month

licence would be

approved, which acknowledged

the future of the city council’s

lease is yet to be finalised with

the park’s owner, Environment

Cancer survivor cycles with pros

• By Sarla Donovan

AT 73, Rob Dally is looking

forward to riding with top New

Zealand cycling pros like Jack

Bauer and George Bennett.

The cancer survivor and keen

cyclist is taking part in the Bupa

Challenge Tour next Friday

– Santos Tour Down Under’s

annual mass-participation ride

in Adelaide.

At the event, recreational

cyclists get to ride on the same

stage as the world’s top riders on

a Union Cycliste Internationale

world tour route. The competitors

also raise money to help

fund cancer research.

Mr Dally was diagnosed with

prostate cancer seven years ago

and had a radical prostatectomy.

But he fought through it and has

been cancer-free since the early

diagnosis operation. He now

rides to celebrate this achievement.

“I’m keen to ride a stage of the

tour that the elites do straight

after me and I’m keen to support

a good charity,” Mr Dally said

yesterday.

The Halswell resident flies to

Adelaide on Monday with his

wife Jan as his support crew. He

said he was looking forward to

meeting other passionate cyclists.

Clocking up about 400km

a week on average, Mr Dally

regularly rides and drinks coffee

with the Magpies cycling group.

“You get hooked,” he says.

There’s a real camaraderie.”

The former city council manager

used to run for Papanui

TocH but took up cycling 13

years ago when his dodgy knee

forced him to stop running.

He says cycling is more exciting:

“You’re going faster on two

wheels – around corners, down

hills.”

In 2011, he was preparing for a

130km road race and was as fit as

he’d ever been, when his surgeon

called him in and said he had

cancer. “It was pretty awful really

. . . pretty sobering.”

But he counts himself as one

of the lucky ones and credits the

experience with changing his

thinking.

“Do what you want to do today,

don’t leave it till tomorrow.

Don’t take things or anybody for

granted.”

Mrs Dally also took up cycling

about same time as the cancer

diagnosis and now the couple

ride and race together.

Last year, they rode across

France to celebrate 50 years of

marriage. “

Those are the sorts of things

you do when you can and count

your blessings you’re able to.”

Steve McLennan

Fighting fires: ‘It is like riding a bike,

Volunteer firefighters

are the backbone

of a community.

Lincoln brigade’s

Steve McLennan, 70,

has been a volunteer

firefighter on and off

since 1964. He speaks

to Andrew King

The Star

Tell me how you got involved

in becoming a volunteer

firefighter.

I was friends with a guy

whose father was the fire chief in

Roxburgh, where I grew up, and

you kind of just get roped into it.

He used to say to me: ‘There is no

use you sitting here by yourself,

come with us.’ From there I was in.

I think our first call out was a scrub

fire on the hill behind Roxburgh.

Why did you keep doing it?

It is like riding a bike, once you

get on it is hard to get off. You

are helping the community. That

is my whole reason behind it. I

could do it with my business up

here because they were related.

It worked really well. I knew

where all the water points were

around the district because of

my spraying business. It is good

local knowledge, like knowing

all the roads and farms and you

can pass that on to the younger

guys coming through. That is

why I have kept around. People

are always using my knowledge.

What is the biggest fire you

have been involved in?

There have been some pretty

big plantation fires we tackled

years ago near Rakaia that took

days to put out and were really

hard work. But the Port Hills fire

was probably the biggest I have

been involved with. We spent a

lot of time loading helicopters

with water and battling the blaze

on Worsleys Spur. That is where

you saw the full extent of that

fire up and around those houses.

It is not just fires you guys

deal with, what are some of the

other memorable call-outs you

have had?

I spent the first 19 hours at the

CTV site after the earthquake

(February 22, 2011). It wasn’t the

best place to be but you do what

you got to do.

What was it like?

As an officer, I was keeping the

tankers moving at the scene to

cart water in. We were fighting

the fire in the lift well. I was right

there. It wasn’t the place you

wanted to be. We didn’t have a lot

of training around earthquake

stuff and we did our best. The big

thing was everyone knew people

were trapped and were working

hard to free them. You could see

the TV cameras pointed at us

and that was a bit upsetting as we

were just there to do a job.

You had a hand in catching

two arsonists about three years

ago. Tell me about that?

We were called to a suspicious

house fire in Little River on New

Year’s Eve. On our way back

we found a hay barn on fire

in Kaituna Valley, which was

also suspicious. While we were

fighting that fire, we were turned

to another hay barn alight on

Tai Tapu Rd and some trees on

fire at the Tai Tapu golf course.

We knew there was an arsonist

running around. On our way to

a flare up a few days later at one

of the hay barn fires, we took a

shortcut to the scene and saw a

car sitting watching the flames

from a distance. We handed the

licence plate number to police

and they were arrested for the

arsons.

Fire rages, homes at risk

once you get on it’s hard to get off’

You must have attended a few

crashes over the years? What is

it like to turn out to those?

I would hate to say how many

road accidents I have been to.

You get hardened to them but

they sort of stick with you.

Any that stand out in your

mind?

I wouldn’t want to single any

out. They are all bad. You brace

yourself for the worst scenario

when you are heading there. It is

easier to ramp down than up.

So what paid the bills in

between catching arsonists and

putting out blazes?

I spent 24-and-a-half years

working for Fulton Hogan in

Central Otago in the transport

and cartage division before I

moved to Canterbury in 1988.

Then I was the freight manager

for Maxwell Brothers for a few

years before starting my own

agricultural spraying business in

1994. I sold that about three years

ago now and I am semi-retired.

Semi-retired?

Well, I am now paid by the

Fire Service to drive new fire

trucks from Wellington to their

destination anywhere in the top

of the South Island. There are

not many weeks where I am not

driving a big red truck around.

What else do you do for the

Fire Service?

I have been involved in a

number of competitions in the

fire brigade, including 22 years

as an official. There are four

different divisions they compete

in – waterways, road crash

rescue, driving, and the combat

challenge. I also represented

the United Fire Brigades’

Association and was the chair

of the Mid-Canterbury subassociation

and the Canterbury

Provincial Association. I am also

a life member of both of those

organisations.

Outside of the service, what

do you get up to?

I used to be into speedway

racing when I was in Central

Otago. I raced TQ (threequarter)

midget cars. I actually

hold the record for the fastest

FAST AND SLOW: Steve McLennan at speed in a TQ midget car at Waitati Speedway, and standing in front of one of the trucks

four laps and fastest six laps at

Waitati Speedway, which was

closed down in the late 70s.

They can’t take that from me.

I had a bit of a go in Ellesmere for

a couple of years but the business

took priority and I gave that away

about two years ago. We get out

and watch it when we can.

So tell me about your family?

I am married to my lovely

wife Wendy, who has stuck with

me through the 30-odd years of

me in the service. She has put

a few dinners back in the oven

while I chase flames. We have

been married for 43 years. We

have two grown-up children.

My daughter, Jody Phillipson, is

married with two children and

works in the travel industry. My

son, Dave McLennan, is a talent

scout for the Crusaders.

Hold on. Your son works for

the Crusaders, but you are from

Central Otago – how does that

work?

It makes for short phone calls

when we play each other and one

comes out on top. I don’t get any

hand-me-down clothes from the

Crusaders either.

Would you want a Crusaders

jersey?

RESPONSIBILITY: The Lincoln brigade was tasked with

fighting a fire in the lift well of the CTV Building after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake. The volunteers also spent

time loading helicopters with water and battling the blaze on

Worsleys Spur during the Port Hills fire.

No.

What is the season looking

like for fires?

She is a bit dry out there. It

will be a funny one. The spring

rain has boosted the fuel sitting

around with plenty of grass

growth throughout the region.

But the frustrating thing is people

don’t take notice of what they are

told. Some are burning rubbish in

no fire season. It is a no-brainer.

What do you say to those

people?

All you can do is extinguish

the fire, take their details and

leave it to the Fire Service. Some

people you would like to throw

everything at them, but you have

to show professionalism. It is

easier to shake your head and say

nothing sometimes.

I can feel the frustration. So

any big plans for the year?

The plan is to go whitebaiting

as Wendy and I both love it. We

have been going to more subdued

spots for the past three years after

Wendy got swept out to sea near

the Rakaia River mouth. Luckily

she was washed back into shore

by the breakers but it was pretty

scary. I love whitebait, but I love

my wife more.

Slice of history in blokey book

Christchurch author and

historian John Rosanowski

has written another book

– this time a novel about a

murder mystery in Reefton

Murder On Broadway.

The book is peopled

with crooked publicans

and cops, cheerful exconvicts,

hard-nosed

prostitutes, confidence

tricksters, white collar

criminals and a quadruplet

team of acrobats. Alyson

Baker reviewed the book

for kiwicrime.blogspot.

co.nz/2018/01/reviewmurder-on-broadway.html

A MAN who burned several

large pieces of tree trunk

claimed he didn’t know there

was a fire ban.

The Little River Fire Brigade

attended an incident between

PLOTS: Murder on Broadway is a companion book to Treachery Road also written by John

Rosanowski.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

MURDER ON Broadway is

a rollicking wild West Coast

goldfields tale of murder and

mayhem.

When the obnoxious Reefton

Police Sergeant Mackworth Snyder

leaves Reefton in the hands

of his new Constable Gordon

Trembath, in the days leading

up to the 1877/78 festive season,

the reader just knows the hapless

cop is going to have to deal

with serious goings on.

Fortunately, Trembath has

the “town idiot”, Abe, to watch

his back, along with Abe’s

friend, the town drunk, Little

Jimmy.

The refrain “he said it would

be quiet over Christmas” is used

to good effect, as the plans for

thievery, swindlery, sly-groggery

and all sorts of other nefarious

business are being made in

Reefton and abroad.

The main target for most

of this activity is the annual

Reefton Boxing Day race meeting,

and tensions rise as the

reader becomes aware of various

scams being set up.

Rosanowski’s plotting verges

on the operatic, and is very

satisfying.

His writing style is

straightforward and is from a

self-deprecating point of view:

“If his words were to be trusted,

this show was going to be on

a par with anything ever seen

in London, Paris or Vienna.

He could also have said, “or

Hokitika,” because that’s where

they had been performing before

Reefton.”

Murder on Broadway is a

very blokey tale, told from a

blokey perspective, and in the

omniscient mode; the reader is

sometimes asked to remember

Prices Valley and Kaituna Valley

Rds on Monday afternoon after

being alerted by the public.

When they arrived at the

scene, chief fire officer David

Irving said the wood looked to

things, as they will become

of relevance later in the story.

But for all that, the tale is quite

nuanced, with young Trembath

becoming aware that things

are not always black and white,

right or wrong – that just because

people are in a position of

trust doesn’t mean you should

trust them, or just because

everyone says someone is stupid

or a waste of space, that they

necessarily are.

The picture of the times is

drawn as a slice of history that

was part of the international

wave of gold rushes – California,

Ballarat, Otago, the West

Coast. And the narrative is

flecked with mentions of real

historical figures such as Bully

Hayes. And Abe’s friend Little

have been burning for a couple

of hours.

He said while the man

“appeared to be ignorant of the

rules,” he was warned not to

light anything else until the fire

Jimmy also features in Rosanowski’s

novel Treachery Road,

set 10 years earlier, about the

Maungatapu murders.

But knowing about historical

figures or the history of the

West Coast goldfields is not

required to enjoy this book. All

the characters are given robust

backgrounds, and you get the

feel of the muddy turbulent

mess of the bustling goldfields

service towns, with their mix of

hardworking people hoping for

a break, petty scoundrels, total

blackguards, and entertainers.

And you also get a feel of the

surrounding bush, in a time

when the now declining bush

robins would flutter around you

as you walked.

A very enjoyable read.

Playground

bin gets more

rubbish than

it can handle

• By Julia Evans

PEOPLE ARE flocking from

across the city to check out

New Brighton’s new $8 million

beachside playground.

But the popularity of the playground

is more than its rubbish

bin can handle.

On Facebook, New Brighton

residents have called on the city

council to increase the amount of

bins or times it is emptied at the

Marine Pde playground.

Residents say more often than not

the playground bin and others in

the area are full and overflowing.

There is one bin next to the new

playground’s toilet block, a ‘Bigbelly’

smart bin which sends city

council staff a message when it is

full and needs emptying.

There are other bins along

the beach and by the old New

Brighton playground.

When The Star went to the park

on Thursday, the city council had

just cleared the bins.

Janine Watson took her

children and a picnic to spend the

afternoon at the playground.

She thought the number of bins

was enough for the area, but said

the people using them should be

more considerate.

Mrs Watson said it was a shame

the bins were left in a “disgusting”

state.

She also said it should “not (be)

the city council’s job” to increase

the number at the park.

Her message to others using the

playground: “Take your rubbish

home with you. If you’re going to

bring a lot of rubbish with you,

you should just take it home as

well.”

Development Christchurch

chief executive Rob Hall said the

playground has been very popular

since it opened.

The use of rubbish bins on-site

and around the playground is

being monitored, with plans to

bring in more bins if these are

required.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

More residents on the

outskirts of the city are

facing a battle against a

new quarry development

after Fulton Hogan put

forward plans for a new

quarry in Templeton

Gary Robinson – So the

poor people who moan about the

dust from these quarries think

it only affects them? Well, what

about the people who go in there

or work there, does it not affect

them as well or is it only the

people that live by the quarries?

I’ve been going in and out of

these quarries for some 30 years

and am still alive and I only live

about 3km from one.

Sophie McInnes – When

will it end? I know it’s supply

and demand, but this is getting

stupid. And the argument

of this block having few

neighbours is daft – living

next door isn’t required when

strong Canterbury winds will

ensure that dust is blown many

kilometres N/E/S/W.

Sean Woods – Plant some

trees, amazes me why there are

not more trees planted when

everyone complains of dust.

Bill Palmer – The quarries

in that Yaldhurst area have

been there for as long as I

can remember. In fact, I’ve

seen photos going back to

the early 60s so why would

any sane person buy in that

neighborhood?

The city’s worst

intersections for red lightrunning

have been named,

with Moorhouse Ave and

Colombo St taking the No 1

spot

Gavin Simôn – The article

points out that they are not

concerned with turning vehicles

turning right on the red. They

are only concerned with straight

through traffic going through on

the red which is also blocking

the right-turning traffic.

Lyn Morris – I think it’s

HIGH RISK: The Moorhouse Ave and Colombo St intersection

was the worst for red light-runners. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

about time they sorted many

of those intersections out. If

you are turning, most times

only two cars get through the

lights if lucky. That’s only if

they pull out into middle. If

three or four back, sometimes it

takes three to four sets of lights

to get around. Talking about

Carmen-Buchanans Rds, many

get annoyed and go through the

lights, seen it so many times at

that intersection.

Peter Osborne – Not a

mention that maybe it is the

timing of these lights causing

the problem as much as the

drivers. If they are looking at

putting money into this, why not

a study for why users felt it was

necessary to go though the “red”

light?

Emajane Harwood –

The Mary St lights are green

for literally 3-4sec. People

continuously don’t pay attention

when heading north on Main

North Rd and end up blocking

the intersection so that when

the light goes green for people

turning right from Mary to

Main North, no one can go. I

have been tooted at, sworn at,

had angry arms flailing at me

from people in cars behind me

when I don’t go. I don’t really

blame people for running the red

light there if it can be done so

quickly. It’s about time whoever

decided they would try and deter

traffic on Mary St gets over the

fact people will drive down there

and just put the lights on green

for longer.

Barbara Edwards – I can

understand Buchanans/Carmen

Rds. Coming from Buchanans,

the lights only stay green long

enough to let one car through.

Maybe reset the timing to let a

few more through?

Ali Mulqueen – They

need to have the lights green

for longer at all intersections,

especially the green arrows, no

wonder there’s accidents, traffic

jams etc. Turning right onto

Waltham Rd can be a nightmare

as only a couple of cars get

through on the arrow. And that’s

just one example.

When Christchurch’s

Bernie Smith competed

at the world darts

championship in London,

England’s Justin Pipe was

seen coughing behind

him as the 53-year-old

attempted to throw a

dart for double 10 which

would have won him the

match

Kerry Treymane – Great

game to watch, great fight

back, humble and honourable

acceptance of the result. Well

done Bernie, you looked like you

belonged up there.

Jeremy Maxwell – Top

bloke Bernie Smith; humble man

and honest.

Kiria Metuatini – Best sport

I’ve enjoyed in years. Well done

Bernie you got me off my seat

that’s for sure.

Che Ritchie – I watched this

match. Bernie played one hell of

a game and to put himself into

the position to win the game was

sensational.

Nick Crowe – A real gent

is Bernie and he’ll be back after

he’s plastered half the Ally Pally

(Alexandra Palace, London).

SO CLOSE: Bernie Smith about to throw what could have been a match-winning dart as

English opponent Justin Pipe bursts into a cough during their first round match at the world

championship in London.

Gardening

Editorial supplied by

www.gardener.kiwi

Summer in your edible garden

Rachel Vogan guides

you through what

needs to be done

now to keep fresh

produce flowing

AS THE warm months take hold,

gardeners should be reaping the

rewards of what was sown and

planted months ago.

Many crops will be in ‘harvest

mode’, such as courgettes,

potatoes, tomatoes, beans, lettuce,

brassicas, herbs and so many

more.

To keep long-term fruiting

crops (such as beans, tomatoes

and courgettes) producing, you

need to keep picking the crop.

This stimulates more flowers,

which equal another round

to harvest.

For any crops going in the

ground this month, it is vital

to give the soil a boost with

nutrients and goodies before

replanting. Once that is done,

soak the soil overnight and

plant the next day. This limits

stress on the new seedlings and

helps prevent transplant shock.

Watering in the new plants with a

seaweed tonic give the seedlings a

head start as well.

STRAWBERRIES

Maximise your harvest by

giving plants a once over now to

remove any dead or tatty leaves

and to cut the runners off from

the main parent plant. Apply a

side-dressing of strawberry food

(if you haven’t already) and give

the plants a deep watering at least

twice a week. A top up of mulch

or compost is a good idea too,

and refresh your layers of straw

especially if the birds have skived

off with it to make nests. The

straw helps to keep the berries

clean and to avoid any mould

issues occurring if the berries sit

directly on the soil. And don’t

be too proud to net your crop to

eliminate any feathered residents

of the garden helping themselves

to your berries.

Strawberries

Capsicum

CHILLIES

A sunny, hot spot suits chillies

best. Feed them with tomato

or strawberry food, a type of

fertiliser that promotes flowers

rather than leaves. While chillies

and capsicums are closely related,

they differ a little in how you

look after them, especially if you

fancy some heat in your chillies.

Once the chillies are about finger

length, reduce the amount of

water the plants get. You may well

feel mean, but if it is flavour you

are after this method works – less

moisture in the chillies helps

intensify the flavour. If you prefer

more heat, water as per usual.

CAPSICUMS

Flowers and fruit will be

forming now. To keep the

energy up to the plant to get the

best harvest possible, drench

with worm wee or seaweed

tonic once a week. For large

capsicums to form, plants need

hot temperatures and plenty of

Eggplant

water. If plants start to look top

heavy, slip a couple of stakes in

to support the main stem. They

begin to ripen from late summer

and into autumn. The flavour

changes as the crop matures from

green then turns into shades

of red, orange or yellow. Once

mature they should be picked

and stored in the fridge – they

deteriorate quickly if left on the

plant. Capsicums are a great crop

if you like to grow vegetables in

containers.

EGGPLANTS

The first batch of eggplants may

be ready to harvest this month.

Pick them once they get to size;

for the large purple ones, this is

when they are about 15cm long

and fat and firm. Thinner types

and round golf ball ones will vary

in size depending on their variety.

Cut fruit off using a knife or

secateurs; don’t just twist or break

the eggplant off the stems as this

often causes the stems to rip,

which can harm the plants. The

Chillies

young ones have the best flavour.

Over the next few months, water

frequently and make sure the soil

stays moist. Don’t let the plants

dry out or you will not get the

results you are after.

TOMATOES

With early types now ripe and

on the menu, keep an eye on later

maturing varieties to make sure

the stems are well supported by

stakes or wires. Pinch out the

laterals, and remove the larger

lower leaves from around the

base of the plant. Removing these

allows more airflow around the

plant and aids ripening of the

lower bunches. Once your fruit

is at the desired size, reduce

the amount of water you give

the plant. It sounds rough, but

this tough love does two things;

it speeds up ripening and it

sweetens the fruit. And its all

about the flavour, right? And

speaking of flavour, basil is a good

companion plant for tomatoes –

plant some more seedlings of this

tasty herb now, they both enjoy

the same conditions.

BEANS

How are your bean stalks

looking? All types of runner,

climbing and bush beans should

be cranking along. To keep them

going, remember to keep picking

the crop, especially the big ones.

They love their tucker, so layers

of compost or sheep pellets are a

good idea to add to the soil now.

Both add nutrients and help the

soil retain moisture. Climbing

beans do need a lot of water – a

deep soaking twice a week is

best rather than a little every

day. Once harvesting starts, they

can crop for up to three months

if regularly picked. Any excess

harvest can be frozen, pickled

or given to friends and family.

Remember to save a few pods for

next year’s seed.

COURGETTE

Existing plants should be

pumping out produce at a rapid

rate of knots. You can plant new

plants now too. One plant can

keep producing courgettes for

about four months. If mildew

appears on the leaves, remove the

worst affected ones and spray the

remaining plant with a mixture

of milk and baking soda. To

prevent it coming back, try and

water the ground only and not

the leaves. The mildew doesn’t

affect the crop so much; however,

it can transfer onto other crops,

which isn’t ideal. Pick courgettes

when they are between 10–15cm

long, if left on the plant they will

eventually turn into marrows.

PUMPKIN

As far as low-maintenance

crops go, pumpkins must be

near the top of the list. You can

literally plant and walk away. By

now these rambling gourds will

be quickly covering the ground.

To keep them kicking along,

water deeply once a week. They

will cope a week or two between

drinks if need be. A regular

drench with liquid fertiliser helps

as they are gross feeders.

Travel

Vancouver Island home to Canada’s garden city

• By Mike Yardley

THERE’S NO more spectacular

way to herald your arrival into

Victoria than to splash down on

a Harbour Air Seaplane.

The unstoppably scenic 30min

flight from Vancouver is a visual

delight, aloft over the Salish Sea’s

jewel-like collection of islets fanning

out from Vancouver Island.

Ogling these pint-sized planes

steeply banking and touching

down on their watery runway, is

a riveting spectator pastime, best

enjoyed from Laurel Point Park

or Delta Ocean Pointe.

It’s like water ballet, in addition

to the frolicking bustle of iconic

yellow and black striped water

taxis, ferries, water skiers and

fishing boats. The inner-harbour

waterfront, liberally wreathed

in candy cotton-pink geraniums

and carpeted in blazing flower

beds, is an irresistible visual

symphony.

Add to that the 1040 hanging

baskets draping downtown Victoria,

each containing 24 plants.

Two men are employed full-time

to water them.

Victoria walks the talk on being

Canada’s Garden City. Prized

waterfront landmarks compete

for your attention at every turn,

as does the trove of sublime

artworks, like the heart-tugging

Homecoming statue, dedicated

in honour of Victoria’s sons and

daughters who served in the

military.

Also fronting the inner harbour

is the Royal BC Museum, a

remarkable storehouse of history

which regularly scoops accolades

as being Canada’s most impressive

museum. Tracing British

Columbian history in compellingly

comprehensible fashion,

highlights include the First

Peoples Gallery and the Natural

History Gallery – one of the few

places in the world where you

can get right up close to a woolly

mammoth, albeit stuffed.

The museum also features a

replica of Captain Vancouver’s

HMS Discovery which rocks and

creaks rather convincingly, and

a beautifully re-created frontier

town with cobbled streets and

detailed store fronts.

After admiring the statue of

Captain Cook on the waterfront,

surveying the horizon in front of

the Empress, I was staggered by

one particular relic on display in

the museum – the actual dagger

that claimed his life in Hawaii.

Who knew?

Within the museum, an IMAX

theatre presents films on a sixstorey-tall

screen. Playing several

times a day, don’t miss a screening

of Rocky Mountain Express. It’s

an historical account of the epic

and arduous struggles to build the

trans-continental railway track,

literally uniting Canada. You don’t

have to be a trainspotter to enjoy

it, lustily featuring the dramatic

topography, saw-toothed peaks

and woodsy grandeur of the

Canadian Rockies.

Tucked into the side of the

Empress Hotel, an old-school

secluded gem called Miniature

World, a tour de force of intricate

model-making. Thronging with

dozens of sprawling diorama settings,

with plenty of push-button

action, this gob-stopping world

of miniatures, spanning childhood

fairytales and epic moments

in history, is engrossing.

More people walk to work in

Victoria than any other Canadian

city, hardly surprising given its

photogenic vistas. A great stroll is

to take the waterfront trail down

Belleville St, into Laurel Park and

around to Fisherman’s Wharf.

I adored the cheerily coloured

float homes moored at the wharf,

alongside pleasure boats that

also berth at the facility. Maybe

they’re a glimpse of how many of

our sea rise-prone coastal communities

may look in the future.

The 33 mobile float homes

have been constructed on old

wooden barges, cement bases,

or metal pontoons. They’d have

to be Victoria’s tiniest homes,

in spite of ranging in size from

multi-storied complexes to lifesized

gingerbread houses. The

last one sold for $340,000 after

being listed for just 24 hours.

Fisherman’s Wharf is also a

great place to get your fill of

fresh fish and seafood. The heart

of town is studded with some

flavourful hoods like LoJo, Lower

NOT TO BE MISSED: Fan Tan Alley – Canada’s narrowest street.

Johnson St between Wharf and

Government St. Thickly flanked

in colourful heritage buildings,

the retail offerings are fresh and

hip, giving rise to the neighbourhood’s

buzz word “HeritEdge.”

Storefronts predominantly

feature locally designed fashions,

naturally-made products,

cosmetics, hair salons and coffee

houses. It’s an example of how an

unmistakably bohemian vibe is

changing up this most English of

Canadian cities.

Pint-sized Chinatown is Canada’s

oldest, once heaving with

opium dens and gambling halls

at the height of the gold rush and

construction of the Canadian

Pacific railway.

Don’t miss Fan Tan Alley – the

narrowest street in Canada.

HOW TO COOK BARBECUE

GRILLED BUTTERFLIED

WHOLE CHICKEN

Ingredients

1 whole butterflied chicken

1 to taste salt & freshly ground

pepper

Barbecue sauce

Directions

Preheat grill to medium. Get

surface temperature to about 200

deg C.

Clean and oil well. Clean the

chicken if you desire and pat dry.

Cut the backbone out of the

chicken with sharp kitchen

scissors. You could use a knife,

but the scissors are much safer

and work great.

With a large knife, give the

breastbone a large nick in the

front of the chicken to help the

bird lay flat.

Rinse the inside of the bird out,

trim any loose fat and extra skin.

Pat dry again. Give the bird a

good sprinkle of salt and pepper.

You could use any seasoning you

want here.

Place skin down on the

grill. Flip after you get a nice

browning on the skin after about

12-15min.

Give the chicken a good

brushing of barbecue sauce.

Grill another 3-4min until

the sauce is browning well.

Total grilling on the second side

should take 20-25min.

Let set for 5min then cut and

serve.

STEAK AND MUSHROOM

PIE

Ingredients

4 large portobello mushrooms,

sliced

800g tri-tip

steak, cut

into 2cm

pieces

20g butter

2 Tbsp oil

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic,

crushed

1 serving flour, seasoned, for

dusting

2 cups beef stock

½ tsp mixed herbs

½ cup red wine

1 Tbsp flour, mixed with 1 Tbsp

melted butter for the thickening

1 sheet short pastry (savoury)

1 sheet puff pastry

1 egg, for glazing

Directions

Heat oven to 180 deg C. Heat

half the butter and oil in a medium

sized pot. Fry the onions and

garlic for 5min until softened.

Dust the meat generously with

flour and shake off the excess.

Heat the remaining butter and

oil in a frying pan. Brown the

meat in batches then add to the

onions. Add a little of the stock

to the pan to deglaze then pour

into the pot.

Add the remaining stock to

the meat along with the herbs,

red wine and mushrooms.

Cook on a low heat

for 1 hour or until

the meat is tender.

Remove ¼ cup

of the liquid

and add to

the thickening,

combine

then tip back into the

pot and stir to thicken. Check the

seasoning (add salt and pepper

if you wish). Cool the mixture to

room temperature.

Line a 23cm pie tin with the

short pastry and trim the edges.

Line with baking paper and rice

and bake blind for 15-20min

until just cooked. Remove the

paper. Fill the pastry with the

meat mixture. Dampen the edges,

and top with the puff pastry,

pressing gently to seal. Use any

extra pastry for decoration. Make

a few slits in the top with a knife

to release steam during baking.

Brush the top with egg. Place

into the oven for 35-40min until

the pastry is risen and golden.

Remove and serve hot.

Civic Type R – return

of a genuine legend

• By Ross Kiddie

IT’S BEEN widely

publicised Honda has a

new Civic hatch in the

New Zealand market, it

launched mid-way through

the year and, sitting beside

its sedan stablemate, the

two are commanding solid

sales.

What hasn’t been quite

so noticeable is the inclusion

of a Type R Civic

hatch. Type R Civic, and

other Honda models wearing

that badge, appeal to

enthusiasts who relate to

the feisty, rorty performance

offering. A friend

of mine is an avid Type R

Civic fan, and every time

we have talked about its

impending arrival, his eyes

lit up in anticipation.

The Type R Civic represents

everything a hot

hatchback buyer could

want. It has a 2-litre turbocharged

engine, it drives

through a six-speed manual

transmission and has

suspension engineered for

quick cornering.

Honda rates the engine

with 228kW and 400Nm,

peak power is reached at

6500rpm, but it’s the area

of maximum torque that

is the most interesting,

full boost is available all of

the way from 2500rpm to

4500rpm. The combination

provides solid response

to accelerator request, the

engine thrives on revs and

offers strong initial and

mid-range acceleration.

Honda claims a 5.7sec

standstill to 100km/h time,

but in my research I’ve

seen independent evaluations

which have times of

around 4.8sec to make that

speed. Honda also claims a

272km/h top speed.

The Type R gets driverselectable

engine management

protocols, there’s a

comfort mode (which also

adjusts the suspension to

softer levels), there’s a sport

mode which heightens

engine anxiety and firms

the suspension, and the ‘R’

mode for those track days

at Ruapuna’s Mike Pero

Motorsport Park.

In ‘R’ mode the Type R is

manic, it responds with the

slightest hint of accelerator

pressure, it is urgent and

frenetic, the kind of feeling

that Type R buyers have

become used to in models

past. In that mode the

exhaust sound is at its most

reticent, there is a sound

popping sound out of it is

far from overbearing.

was in its element on

through the front wheels,

and while the performance

car purist might not relate

to that, the entire handling

feel is one of neutrality.

At the media launch

for the new Type R we, as

journalists, were treated

to hot laps at Hampton

Downs motorsport complex.

Rain was intermittent

which made the track

very greasy. Even with the

natural push developed

by front-wheel-drive the

Type R was directional and

controllable, and with the

complex electronic traction

devices there was little to

indicate front-wheel-drive

was a disadvantage.

When presented with

some tight corners it’s reassuring

to feel the power of

the four-corner Brembo

brakes. The pedal is sharp

and inviting and retardation

is massive; just when

you think that brakes are

working at their maximum

you can squeeze the pedal

just a little bit harder and

speed is quickly arrested.

The Type R is a true

performance machine,

it has complex engineering

structures within the

suspension, and other

mechanical and electronic

components, so that its

ability in the performance

sphere is uncompromised.

But it also appeals in many

other ways. Just to look at

the Type R Civic tugs at the

senses. The body shape,

while distinctively Civic, is

adorned with carbon fibre

accents, edges and spoilers

which wouldn’t look out of

place on a formula one car.

On the inside, bright red,

sports-style seats and red

seat belts command the

cabin, the dash graphics

exude a sporty look and

leave nothing to the imagination,

the Type R is aimed

at a buyer who wants to

stand out in a crowd and

had best be prepared to be

looked at. I know during

my time with the evaluation

car it captured looks

from all quarters.

Interestingly, the Type R

lands here from England,

it is built to Honda Japan’s

quality control criteria at

its Swindon plant. Even

though shipping costs are

high, the newcomer lands

at a competitive $59,900.

While Honda has had a

tough time in formula one

in recent years, the Type R

Civic is a result of Honda’s

healthy motorsport heritage

and it is built to traditional

hot hatchback

criteria.

It also lives up to the

reputation of its predecessors;

however, it is by far

a better car that any produced

before, those who do

buy one will certainly be

rewarded by the fun factor

every time the wheels turn.

CITY 2 SURF TRAINING PROGRAMME

Congratulations on making your decision to enter the Star Media City to Surf!

No doubt, the first hint of panic will have set in as your thoughts turn to ‘how are you going to prepare

yourself for this challenge?’ And that is probably why you are now reading this article. This is going to be

as close to employing your own personal coach as you can get….and, it is all for free. We are presenting

two 10 week programmes to you. The first one is for beginners and Star Media City to Surf first timers.

You consider yourself unfit, probably carry a bit too much around the hips and waist and you have not

played sport for a period of time. The second programme is aimed at people who are already dabbling

in fitness and have some experience with jogging or running. For both groups the main goal will be to

finish the event, enjoy the experience but above all use the 10 week programme as a means to to improve

your overall health, fitness and quality of life.

To achieve this goal you need to

develop some awareness around the

basic requirements of exercising for

health and fitness. First and foremost

this has to do with 3 key principles:

1. How often do you train? To improve

your level of health and fitness you will

need to aim for 4 sessions per week. 2

or 3 sessions per week will only maintain

what you have and 1 session per week is

definitely not sufficient.

2. How long are your sessions? The

duration of your sessions will generally

build towards between 30 and 50 minutes

with one longer session of 60-80 minutes.

3. What is the right intensity to train at?

The good thing about the programme

is that all your runs will be done at

submaximal pace, also called conversation

pace. That means a pace where you can

still talk. If you can’t talk you are going

too fast and you are likely to come to a

grinding halt sooner or later.

This programme and accompanying information are

written as a guide only. If you are concerned about

your health at any stage please undergo a health

check with your GP.

TIP OF THE WEEK

If you have never run or jogged before,

we recommended that you alternate

brisk walking with jogging as indicated

in the schedule. Be aware that jogging

is different from running. When jogging,

you go at a pace which is only a fraction

faster than a brisk walk, your feet stay

close to the ground and the rhythm is

that of a slow dance. This is a technique,

once mastered, which will enable you

to jog for longer periods of time (for

example, the whole 14 km distance…. )

Casual cyclist to European tour

Talbot’s rapid climb to the top

• By Gordon Findlater

TWO YEARS ago, the only time

Ian Talbot jumped on a bike was

when he rode to university or on

the occasional weekend joy ride

with friends.

But now the once casual cyclist

is one of the most promising

young riders in the country.

Last week, the 20-year-old won

the under-23 time trial title at

the New Zealand road cycling

championships in Napier.

The Team Skoda Racing rider

first realised he could give the

sport a crack after tracking his

time using an app on his phone

while riding up Dyers Pass Rd.

“I use an app called Strava

which allows you to check your

times against other riders. All of

a sudden I realised I was in the

top 10 per cent of people going

up the hill, so I thought what

could happen if I put my mind to

it and train,” said Talbot.

A switch was flicked and Talbot

started training 15-16 hours

a week and received coaching.

In 2017, he rode a total of

19,452km over 627 hours. He

also climbed a total of 157,894m

– the equivalent of going up Mt

Everest 17 times. A big leap from

riding 100km on average a week

before 2017. This year, he’ll step

up to the next level. Talbot has

put his studies at Canterbury

University on hold to pursue

cycling full-time.

He will spend nine months

in Europe riding for French

team UC Nantes Atlantique

and will race at a top amateur

level. He also plans to compete

in a number of internationally

sanctioned Union Cycliste

Internationale races.

“I want to keep going and keep

pushing myself until I find the

limit. Ideally, I want to go as far

as I can,” said Talbot.

Since moving to Christchurch

to study mechanical engineering

three years ago he has worked

part-time at cycling store Chain

Reaction. He says his staff

discount has proved helpful on

his journey into what can be an

expensive sport to compete in.

Before moving to Christchurch

from Nelson, Talbot hadn’t even

owned a road bike.

The mountain bike was a bit

slow around town. I got sick of

QUICK LEARNER: Ian Talbot won the under-23 national time

trial but only took up cycling 12 months ago.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

taking an extra 15min to get

anywhere and eventually found

the money for a good bike,” he

said.

His first competitive race was

in February at the first round

of the Calder Stewart Cycling

Series in Cheviot. He finished

a respectable 22nd overall and

fourth in the under-23 division.

It didn’t take him long to

improve, finishing seventh at the

second round in Otago before

claiming a podium at the Hokitika

Classic in September.

Talbot described his first experiences

riding in a peloton as a

huge challenge and is admittedly

still finding his feet in terms

of the strategical side of road

racing. “It’s like playing chess at

40km/h,” he said.

Riding in a bunch wasn’t an issue

when he claimed the national

under-23 time trial title on Friday.

His winning time of 53min

52.80sec over the 40km course

saw him finish just under 18sec

ahead of fellow Canterbury rider

Jake Marryatt in second.

Talbot’s time would also have

been good enough for seventh

place in the elite men’s grade

which was won by double Olympic

gold medallist rower-turnedcyclist

Hamish Bond.

“It was a goal I set 12 months

ago, but to turn up and do it

on the day was amazing,” said

Talbot.

Other than his first national

title in Napier, Talbot’s other

highlight of his brief competitive

career came in Tasmania in November.

He finished fifth overall

in the five-day Spirit of Tasmania

Cycling Tour. Past winners of

the tour include Cadel Evans and

Richie Porte.

Talbot left for France yesterday.

Ironically, he partly funded his

trip to Europe by selling his

car. If he progresses as far over

the next year as he did in 2017,

cycling may prove a faster mode

of transport for him.

Armstrong eyes Wigram trophy

• By Gordon Findlater

MARCUS Armstrong is a young

man well and truly entrenched

in the pursuit of his dream to

race in formula one. To date he’s

on track to make it a reality.

This weekend the Europebased

Christchurch driver will

get a rare chance to show off

his talent in front of his home

crowd at the opening

round of the

Toyota Racing

Series at Ruapuna.

He starts his second

campaign in

Marcus

Armstrong

the series as a title

favourite.

After finishing

fourth in last year’s TRS, Armstrong

won the Italian formula

four championship, finished

runner-up in the German F4 series,

and was part of the Ferrari

Young Driver Academy.

His stellar season in Europe

has seen the Christchurch driver

picked by Prema Racing to compete

in the formula three European

championship this year.

The racing category is one of

the most highly-regarded feeder

categories into formula one.

“Last year I won F4, this year

I need to win F3 and then win

F2. It’s a continuous cycle,” said

Armstrong.

• By Andrew King

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School rowers will

have to juggle their boats ahead of the

Canterbury championships on Sunday

after their best craft was destroyed on

Monday.

A 30m poplar tree fell into the Avon

River just as the under-15 crew of Reuben

Bannon, Finley Ocheduszko Brown,

Cameron Maughan, Liam Whitaker and

David Brown rowed underneath.

The boys suffered minor injuries but

were all okay, although the boat was no

longer usable, Shirley Boys’ High head of

RISING STAR: Marcus Armstrong aims to win New Zealand’s

premier single seater racing series before starting his first

season in the European formula 3.

The European formula three

championship starts in May and

has 10 rounds, running until

October. Armstrong will get to

compete on some iconic tracks,

including Spa, Nürburgring and

Silverstone.

On Sunday, Armstrong has a

chance to add his name to the

Lady Wigram Trophy. Famous

names on the trophy include

Jack Brabham, Stirling Moss,

Bruce McLaren, Jackie Stewart,

Jim Clark and Jochen Rindt.

There’s certainly an extra

pressure that comes with racing

in front of a home crowd,” said

Armstrong.

Shirley BHS goes into

champs a boat down

rowing Rob Wilson-Pyne said.

He said there has been plenty of help

offered from various schools and rowing

clubs in the city, including a loan boat to

keep them competing right up until the

Maadi Cup in March, the biggest high

school rowing regatta of the year.

“This incident has taken away our

best boat, but we have been fortunate

enough to be offered another so we can

keep working towards future races and

Maadi,” he said.

The team has now turned their

attention to the Canterbury

championships in Twizel.

Young athletes set to

sparkle at Colgate Games

CHRISTCHURCH’S junior athletes

are set to take their marks in the 40th

Colgate Games this weekend.

The games at Aorangi Park, Timaru,

have attracted 64 clubs from across the

South Island with 944 competitors.

South Island Colgate Games

chairwoman Diane Smith said the games

have a proud history.

“Some of the competitors in this

year’s games are second or third

generation participants, with parents

and grandparents who’ve competed in

previous South Island events over the

years.”

Colgate New Zealand general manager

John Garside said the game’s anniversary

was about encouraging New Zealand’s

up-and-coming athletes to stay in

athletics. “The 40th anniversary is an

opportunity to celebrate the past, as well

as the future generation of athletes.

“Many kids have been training hard

all summer to beat the benchmarks their

parents, and even grandparents set when

they competed in the Colgate Games in

years gone by – it’s great to watch,” he

said.

Colgate and the New Zealand

Children’s Athletics Association have

provided four scholarships worth $700

each for South Island athletes who give

outstanding performances.

The South Island Colgate Games run

from tomorrow until Sunday at Aorangi

Park, Timaru.

“Maybe that’s a mistake I

made last year. I really wanted

to win that race. At the moment,

I’m not even thinking about the

names on the trophy. If I can

win it, then I’ll get a chance to

take it in.”

Round one of the TRS at

Ruapuna starts with a practice

session tomorrow. Saturday will

feature qualifying and race one,

with races two and three (Lady

Wigram Trophy) on Sunday.

Christchurch’s other entrant is

19-year-old Ryan Yardley, who is

making his TRS debut after winning

the Toyota 86 sports coupe

series last summer.

Webb’s season looking

up ahead of midget

derby at Ruapuna

• By Allan Batt

A HORROR start to the

speedway season has been

turned around by Christchurch

driver Jeremy Webb

who returned from

Auckland where he took

out several top 10 spots

in the international

world series.

Now Webb is keen to

carry his form into the

K&T Drainage Midget

Derby at Ruapuna this

weekend.

“We had a major

engine blow up very

early in our season. We were

lucky to source another engine

which got us back onto the track.

An opportunity came up to race

up at Western Springs so we

made a decision to give it a go,”

said Webb.

“With a heap of American

and Australians racing up there,

you get to compete against the

best in the world. The biggest

names from midget car racing

in the (United States) were there,

including Nascar star Kyle

Larson, and there’s no doubt that

The biggest range of vehicles in one location

you learn so much from them,

just watching their lines and

then racing wheel-to-wheel with

them.”

Webb emerged from the series

with top 10 finishes in

each of the four feature

races he contested. His

fourth place in the round

at Bay Park, Tauranga,

was his best effort. Webb

eventually finished

eighth in the overall

standings, the fourth

highest New Zealander

Jeremy Webb behind Brock Maskovich,

Michael Pickens and

former national champion

Shayne Alach.

Last Saturday Webb finished

eighth in the 39-lap feature race,

right behind multi-time national

champion, Pickens. He said it

puts him in a “good place” for the

rest of the season.

“We will be pretty busy

over the next three weeks. I

really want to win the race at

Ruapuna on Saturday, as its being

backed by Gordon Kenning who

has been a long-time supporter of

my racing,” said Webb.

Looking for a Property?

What really counts

You are in the market for a new property,

scrolling the Internet, examining

properties for sale and zeroing in on

those with potential. They might be

in locations that offer cheaper land,

larger houses, or convenience to work

or school. You may have visited show

homes and open homes becoming

confused, overwhelmed or swept

away with emotional factors like having

everything new, or extra features such as

three car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the

features that you need, considering:

; Family space – Is there room for

the children to play indoors and

for television and entertainment

units? Should this be open plan or

separated?

; Kitchen – What needs to be in your

kitchen? How serious are you about

a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim or

something that offers a practical

solution to the way you use your

kitchen?

; Bedroom sizes – What are optimum

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may

translate to slightly lower building

costs while extra space can be useful.

When looking at existing homes,

consider whether the size of each

bedroom is sufficient.

; Garaging – A standard double garage

once two cars are parked there offers

little space for the toys. What toys

do you have and could they live with

the lawnmower in a garden shed, a

cheaper option to three car garaging?

If the budget allows and a larger

garage with workshop is important,

make it a selection priority.

; Size of land – Lifestyle properties

offer space for children, pets, hobbies,

an expansive garden and perhaps a

home-run business but they require

work so are not for everyone and

a compact section might be more

sensible if a tight budget or busy

lifestyle.

; Bathrooms – Second and third

bathrooms are great in homes with

teenagers and a wet shower room is

ideal for young children. A bath might

be fashionable though is often not

used and its absence could mean a

more spacious bathroom.

; Laundry – Would a laundry in the

garage do the job?

; Storage – How much storage do you

need? Weigh up what can truly be

stored in the garage once vehicles are

in, a preference in winter. Garages vary

in size so check the size to ensure your

vehicles will fit. Look also at where

else the house offers storage capacity

such as in hall cupboards, a large hot

water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes

(check their width and depth), walk-in

robe, attic storage trusses, as well as

the potential for hooks and shelving

in the garage for bikes, tools, garden

equipment and even kayaks.

; Off-street parking – How many

vehicles can be parked on the

driveway? Will this space be sufficient?

; Garden - Is there sufficient space

for your children to play or for

entertaining?

A checklist will allow you to determine

what will suit your needs, the point of

the exercise, saving you time looking at

properties or potential house designs

while assisting you to decide whether

to buy a new or existing home with

both options having advantages and

disadvantages.
