Warning:

Stay away

from

dangerous

trees

• By Sophie Cornish

ABOUT 30 of the 100 trees on the South

New Brighton Domain estuary edge

are at risk of falling at any time, says

Coastal-Burwood Community Board

deputy chairman Tim Sintes.

He believes it is a serious health and

safety risk, especially

for people who

use the domain

walkway.

“It’s not if, it’s

when . . . those 30

trees could fall down

today, tomorrow or

in five months time,”

said Mr Sintes.

City council head

Tim Sintes

of parks Brent Smith said the trees are

being monitored.

“One fallen tree on the beach of the

estuary and five large tree stumps have

been removed,” Mr Smith said.

“There is a group of eight dead pine

and macrocarpa trees near the boundary

fence which will be removed due to

safety. Treetech will also remove a

number of broken branches in close

proximity of the main walkway.”

The work is expected to be carried out

within the next two weeks. However

Mr Sintes does not believe that is fast

enough.

YOU DON’T have to be a rocket scientist

Domain are dangerous (see page 1).

With any luck the tail end of Cyclone

Gita will do its handy work overnight and

the 30 or so trees community board member Tim Sintes says

could fall at any time will be down.

The city council has been working on the problem and more

is to be done over the next fortnight.

The photos tell the story, and the wind and water in the estuary

will move and unbalance them further.

So until they are cut down, stay away.

Needless to say, the trees are rooted.

Call for pedestrian crossing

• By Emily O’Connell

HALSWELL residents may

soon be able to walk across

Ensign St “safely” if a pharmacy

owner’s bid for a pedestrian

crossing gets across the line.

Karen Frater is worried someone

will get hurt crossing the

street outside

her Halswell

Pharmacy due

to speeding

vehicles.

“It is a

50km/h road

Mike Mora

but everyone

seems to be in

a hurry these days, I think that

happens on every road, but then

you’ve got a narrow road and

people who are not necessarily

100 per cent well,” she said.

Mrs Frater said many

residents park at the Halswell

Medical Centre and then cross

the road to the pharmacy to get

medication.

She said the street kerb is

“precarious for someone elderly

or with a walking frame.”

There has also been a few “near

misses” and residents have seen

a need for a crossing on the

street.

“So if we could get something

that slows people down in this

area, that would be a bit better,”

Mrs Frater said. She is also

worried about Oaklands School

and The Lighthouse Pre-school

pupils crossing the road.

She expressed her concerns

at a Halswell Residents’

Association meeting last month.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora, member Ross

McFarlane, and a city council

staff member paid Mrs Frater

a visit to see the problem firsthand.

As a result, Mr Mora raised

the issue at the community

board meeting last week. The

board asked city council staff

to investigate a pedestrian

crossing.

Mrs Frater is pleased with the

progress and the “proactive”

approach from the residents’

crossing can be installed by July.

TWO NEW submarine

pipelines will stop wastewater

being discharged into Lyttelton

Untreated wastewater from

Governors Bay and Diamond

Harbour will be carried through

the pipelines to a new pump station

on Simeon Quay

It will then be piped through

the Lyttelton Tunnel to the

Woolston pump station and onto

the Bromley wastewater treatment

discharged out to sea through the

Christchurch Ocean Outfall.

Local iwi carried out a blessing

in Lyttelton last week ahead

Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner

spoke at the blessing, which was

led by Rapaki representative Rewi

The specialist mental health

services librarian at Hillmorton

Hospital suffered two debilitating

strokes at the age of six.

Fifty-four years later she is still

seeing progress and wants others

to know they can too.

Although the six-week long

bike ride is “a particularly big

challenge” and costing her

money, Mrs Milne says “I’m up

for it”.

“I believe in raising awareness,

especially for people who have

had a stroke many years ago, and

their families, who maybe feel

stuck and don’t think that they

have a chance of improving.”

“I want to let them know that

I am living proof that you can,”

she said.

Three years ago, Mrs Milne

said she was “a mess”.

After a back surgery, she could

hardly put one foot in front of

another.

Her “good” leg wasn’t working

very well and “all I had left was

my good arm,” she said.

So she bought a Fitbit and

started walking.

“I had no balance and was so

unfit. I began by taking my car

three quarters of the way to work

and walking the other quarter.”

In a year, she was walking

70km a week, her heart rate had

decreased, and she had managed

to walk downstairs, something

that was particularly difficult.

Mrs Milne says initially she

was “terrified” of riding a bike

because of her balance issues.

really, really hard.”

Villa Maria marks centenary

IT HAS now been 100 since the

Sisters of Mercy first welcomed

pupils to Villa Maria College.

The birthday was celebrated

by more than 1500 guests over

the weekend, culminating in a

special mass and morning tea.

“We are proud of our humble

beginnings, we are grateful for

the hard work given freely by the

sisters throughout our history,

and we are delighted to celebrate

this special milestone with our

community,” said principal

Deborah Brosnahan.

“The college was thrilled to

see past pupils travelling from

all over the world to be part of

the celebrations, reconnecting

with their friends, teachers and

school staff. There were stories

shared, memories relived, many

laughs, and moments of quiet

reflection for those who have

passed,” said Ms Brosnahan.

The weekend was opened with

a live show, complete

with music and drama, and

a choir performance by past

pupils.

The show was followed by a

reception outside in the college

courtyard.

On Saturday, the college

hosted a family-friendly fun

day, functions for past college

That night, the marquee on

the college grounds was transformed

into a ball.

Sunday’s special mass and

morning tea, hosted by the Villa

Maria College Foundation, was

also a significant part of the

weekend.

“Villa Maria’s centennial

will continue to be celebrated

throughout 2018, but this weekend

was a fitting tribute to the

college, its founders and all who

have called Villa home,” said Ms

Brosnahan.

Fire rages, homes at risk

HANGING ON: Tim Sintes said damaged trees in the South New

Brighton Domain are a health and safety concern.

Warning issued over dangerous trees

•From page 1

“They might have a few more

to repair if this bad weather

comes through . . . at this stage,

they aren’t going to do it between

now and the next few days, so

if they all come down, they are

going to have to move quicker

than that.’’

High winds and heavy rainfall

is predicted for Christchurch this

week, as the tail of Cyclone Gita

hits.

There is no signs or taping

around damaged tress to warn

the public of danger.

“I believe there should be,” said

Mr Sintes.

Last month, a 30m tree with

rotten roots toppled into the

Avon River and sunk a Shirley

Boys’ High School rowing boat.

No one was injured.

Mr Sintes said a lot more

damage was done recently by

the king tides and strong

wind.

However, he believes the cause

relates to damage and erosion

along the estuary edge, which

was previously protected before

the earthquakes.

He is pushing for the estuary

edge to be protected from

erosion, which he believes

would stop the trees from being

damaged and falling.

“If you look at some parts of

the estuary edge that weren’t

damaged in the earthquakes,

there’s no problem at all,” said

Mr Sintes

It’s quite obvious that we’re not

talking about climate

change here, we’re talking

about how there was something

to protect them before the

earthquake.

“It got damaged and we’re

paying the consequences now.”

Bid to get multiple sclerosis treatment in Russia

• By Emily O’Connell

KERYN ASHWORTH needs

$100,000 for a treatment which

will enable her to “do the simple

things” in life.

The owner of Sharna’s Doggy

Day Care and Dog Grooming

in Hornby has suffered from

multiple sclerosis for more than

10 years.

The disease, which damages

nerve cells in the brain and

spinal cord, causes symptoms

such as numbness, impairment

of speech and muscular coordination,

blurred vision and

severe fatigue.

Ms Ashworth says a

treatment available in Russia

called hematopoietic stem cell

transplantation could change her

life.

“The drugs I’m on at the

moment cost the Government

$50,000 a year. It’s ridiculous,

absolutely ridiculous, and they’re

not working,” she said.

Ms Ashworth said, in the last

five years and especially last year,

her health has deteriorated.

“There is just no drug and

New Zealand doesn’t do HSCT.

They’re not so much against it,

they just want more proof of

long-term results,” she said.

She is planning to go to Russia

later in the year for treatment.

Natasha Musson and Lisa Fisher,

of Burwood, as well as Northwood’s

Lauren Smith are also

planning to travel to Russia for

the treatment.

The $100,000 will cover return

airfares for herself and her son

Scott, medical costs, accommodation,

and food expenses for five

to seven weeks.

She said Russia has been

preforming the treatment for 18

years and has had “phenomenal

results.”

But it isn’t a magic cure. Ms

Ashworth says it “halts” the

disease and, in some cases, it can

improve a person’s condition.

Brave by rose McGowan

“My life, as you will read, has taken me from one cult to another. BRAVE is the story

of how I fought my way out of these cults and reclaimed my life. I want to help you

do the same.” - Rose McGowan. A revealing memoir and empowering manifesto -

A voice for generations Rose McGowan was born in one cult and came of age in

another, more visible cult: Hollywood. In a strange world where she was continually

on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure

and sexualisation. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had

done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal

life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged

with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood

machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and

identity and marketing them for profit. Hollywood expected Rose to be silent and

cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity

and voice. She re-emerged unscripted, courageous, victorious, angry, smart,

fierce, unapologetic, controversial, and real as. BRAVE is her raw, honest, and

poignant memoir/manifesto-a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the

rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who

is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the

concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic

misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up and be BRAVE.

Supercharge Your Gut

SUPERCHARGED FOOD by Lee Holmes

Eat your way to better gut health, increased energy and

happier moods. The research is in and the facts are

undeniable: the gut has an immense influence over our

health - directly impacting immunity, weight, sleep, mood and

overall wellbeing. Yet many of us race through life ignoring

this incredible ecosystem, until something wakes us up.

The good news is that healing and maintaining a healthy

gut is not difficult or time consuming. This simple two-day

maintenance plan is supported by deliciously nourishing

recipes, handy tips and information to enable you to enjoy the

countless benefits of a happy, healthy gut, for life.

The Cage by Lloyd Jones

A powerful allegorical tale about humanity and dignity and

the ease with which we can justify brutality. Two mysterious

strangers turn up at a hotel in a small country town. Where

have they come from? Who are they? What catastrophe

are they fleeing? The townspeople want answers, but the

strangers are unable to speak of their trauma. Before long,

wary hospitality shifts to suspicion and fear, and the care of

the men slides into appalling cruelty. Lloyd Jones’s fable-like

novel The Cage is a profound and unsettling novel.

“A local team for local people”

Hung, Garvey to play

Asia-Pacific champs

PROMISING GOLFER Juliana

Hung will trade in school for

one of the world’s biggest

amateur golf tournaments this

week.

Hung, 15, who plays for Russley,

begins her first round at the

inaugural amateur Asia-Pacific

championship in Singapore tomorrow,

just a day before her

16th birthday.

She will be joined in the

tournament by Amelia

Garvey. The 17-year-old is

ranked No 1 in Canterbury

and ninth in the New Zealand

amateur rankings. She has

just started a gold scholarship

at the University of Southern

California.

They have been included in a

six-strong New Zealand team

made up of Wenyung Keh, Britney

Dryland, Rose Zheng and

Caryn Khoo.

The winner will receive an

invitation to play in two major

championships, the Ricoh

British Open and the ANA

Inspiration.

The winner will also receive an

invitation to play in the HSBC

championship.

The format of amateur Asia-

Pacific championship will be

72 holes of stroke play at the

Sentosa Golf Club with a total of

86 players making the full field,

and about 20 countries being

represented.

YOUNG GUN: Juliana Hung

will be one of the youngest

competitors at the inaugural

amateur Asia-Pacific

championship. ​ (Above) –

Amelia Garvey, who is ranked

No 1 in Canterbury, will join her

at the championship.

In January, Hung won the

Canterbury women’s stroke play

title.

At just 15, Hung is not a

stranger to big tournaments.

Last year, she qualified for the

LPGA Tour’s New Zealand Open

at Windross Farm Golf Club,

Auckland.

Hung missed the half-way

cut after rounds of 74 and 75.

However, her five over par was

better than a number of LPGA

Tour regulars ranked inside the

top 200 in the world.

Garvey also contested the

NZ Open, making the cut and

finishing as the top amateur.

6 lamb loin chops

2 red onions, freshly sliced

2 cm root ginger, grated

4 garlic cloves

1 red chilli, finely chopped

1 tbsp ras el hanout spice mix

5 tomatoes

800g kumara

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp honey

1 cinnamon stick

500g rice

1 handful coriander leaves

CHICKEN WITH

NECTARINES

Ingredients

1kg chicken breast, cut into

generous bite-sized pieces

25g butter

1 cup chicken stock

½ tsp fresh thyme, finely

chopped

½ tsp fresh rosemary, finely

chopped

1 tsp curry powder, mild

1 tbsp cornflour, or arrowroot

dissolved in 2 tablespoons of

cold water

½ cup cashew nuts, chopped

3 nectarines, peeled, sliced

1 pinch salt and pepper

Directions

Melt the butter and brown the

chicken pieces.

Add the chicken stock and

the herbs and poach the

chicken gently until cooked. Set

aside.

Add the curry powder and the

dissolved cornflour to the liquid

and warm to thicken.

Add the nectarine slices and

the chicken pieces to the sauce

to warm through.

Season with the salt and

pepper.

Finish with a squeeze of fresh

lime or lemon to zing up the

flavours.

Garnish with the cashews.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C.

On an element heat the olive oil

in a flameproof casserole dish

over a medium-high heat. Season

the lamb chops liberally with salt

and pepper, and brown on both

aside.

Drain off all but one tbsp of

and cook in the oven for two

hours.

Uncover and skim off any

excess fat from the surface. If the

sauce is too thin, reduce over

a medium-high heat for a few

minutes. Adjust the seasoning -

you may need an extra squeeze

of lemon juice. Serve with

steamed rice and some coriander

leaves.

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Modern diet

leads to illness!

It’s not what you eat but what you absorb

Two Australian Naturopaths Stephen

& Shane noticed at the end of the 20th

century more & more of their patients

were experiencing gut, bowel & digestive

issues that were often leading to more

serious chronic health conditions. Being

Naturopaths they wanted to find what was

going wrong & began extensive research.

What they found was although their clients

were generally eating good food they were

not obtaining all the nutrients required

for good health from this food. Further

research showed one of the main problems

was the digestive system, “it’s not what you

eat but what you absorb.” Another wellknown

problem is the soils the crops are

grown in have been depleted of many trace

elements & other nutrients that are known

to be essential for good health & therefore

the crops & food are also depleted. If we do

not obtain all the nutrients we require the

body will compensate to some degree but

a lack of too many nutrients will eventually

lead to health issues.

Based on this they developed VITAL

GREENS, a nutrient dense powdered

formula that provides superior absorption

as well as comprehensive nutrition. They

decided on a powdered formula that

could be made as a great tasting drink

because liquid nutrition is the easiest

way for the body to absorb nutrients

especially if digestive issues are present.

The formula provides 76 vital ingredients

that work together in synergy optimising

each other’s absorption & benefits. Vital

Greens contains a carefully balanced blend

of nutritionally rich greens, vegetables,

fruits, minerals, vitamins, essential fatty

acids, plant & herbal extracts, superfoods,

powerful antioxidants, probiotics, essential

amino acids, digestive enzymes, fibre plus a

uniquely alkalising pea protein. It provides

superior nutrition to a multivitamin &

anyone will benefit from it. It is designed to

provide all the nutrients the body requires

for good health. It is also ideal for those in

poor health, those recovering from injury

or sickness, children, athletes, poor eaters

& the elderly. It is also suitable for people

with dietary restrictions & is gluten, wheat

& dairy free. Vital Greens will help remove

toxic waste from the body while supporting

all organs. You’ll often notice more energy

Are you Magnesium

deficient?

Minerals are the building blocks of

good health. Some minerals are only

needed in trace amounts where others

like magnesium are need in much larger

amounts & on a regular basis to prevent

deficiency & maintain optimum health. A

large number of us do not obtain sufficient

magnesium from our diet & may notice

some of the common signs of deficiency.

Some of the more common symptoms that

may be caused by insufficient magnesium

are: leg & muscle cramps, twitches, muscle

pain, muscle fatigue & weakness, tremors

of hands, blurred vision, restlessness, poor

sleep, raised &/or unstable blood pressure,

poor circulation, irregular heartbeat,

shortness of breath, swallowing problems,

dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation,

irritability, seizures, poor concentration &

many more.

Although many young people now show

signs of magnesium deficiency symptoms

generally worsen as we age due to our

digestive system being less efficient. Taking

a magnesium supplement of sufficient

strength may be a sensible option to top

up our vital magnesium levels. Not all

magnesium supplements however are

well absorbed by everyone. Luckily a new

marine sourced magnesium has been

found that offers good levels of absorbable

magnesium as well as many trace nutrients

that are low in the diet but essential for

good health.

REAL ESTATE

Sample the city’s best

326 Montreal Street, Central City

Auction: Thursday 08 March 2018 Unless Sold Prior | Listing ID: PI49998

Wow! This location is hard to beat. Nestled in the

heart of a highly popular city precinct known for its

art and iconic attractions, this 516 sqm of bare land

is surrounded by the very best of Christchurch. A

corner location adds to the versatility of the site and a

high-profile address, directly across the road from the

Christchurch Art Gallery, will have developers buzzing

with the possibilities.

Stroll to a huge (and ever-expanding) selection of

restaurants, bars and shops. A six-minute walk will

take you to the famous Arts Centre and leafy Botanic

Gardens. A ten-minute walk will have you at Cashel

Street in the centre of the retail precinct or in everpopular

Victoria Street. Can you believe it’s also zoned

for some of the city’s top schools? Elmwood School,

Heaton, Boys’ High and Girls’ High provide a complete

education, in addition to numerous private schooling

options nearby.

As the city further develops in the coming months

and years, and the benefits of central city living grow

in popularity, this prime location will prove an asset in

your portfolio. This opportunity is absolutely one of a

kind - now is the time to act. Consented plans for two

townhouses available.

Contact Cameron Bailey on 352 6166 or mobile

0275 557 079 of Harcourts Gold Papanui (Licensed

Agent REAA 2008) today and register your interest.

Auction date Thursday 8 Mar 10:00am (Gold
