The Duncan-Caley’s son

Connor, 8, was diagnosed with

a brain tumour in June last year,

which then caused him to develop

Posterior Fossa Syndrome,

leaving him unable to blink,

swallow, move or talk.

He has undergone several operations,

weeks of radiation, and

Parklands Lotto & Post

four months of chemotherapy.

On top of that Connor’s father

Mark Duncan-Caley lost his job

when the company he worked

for went into liquidation, and the

earthquake-damaged house they

bought as an ‘as is where is’ is

now subject to insurance issues.

So the community has rallied

around to help them out with a

fundraising art auction.

Connor and his parents are

currently living at the Wilson

Centre in Auckland, which

provides a rehabilitation service

for children.

Freedom

campers

come

under

fire again

• By Sophie Cornish

THE SPOTLIGHT is going on

freedom campers parking up

from North Beach to South New

Brighton.

Forty complaints about their

activities were made to the city

council between October and

late February.

More than 300 comments

were posted on the People’s

Independent Republic of

New Brighton Facebook page

debating the freedom camping

issue.

A North New Brighton

resident, who only wanted to be

named as Nicky, was outraged

when she saw a freedom camper

washing her underwear in a

drinking fountain in the North

Beach car park on February 24.

In spite of being asked to stop

by Nicky and another woman,

the freedom camper continued.

“I told her, we don’t like this,

this is disgusting, kids drink

out of this including mine,

can you please go and do it in

the changing rooms, this is a

drinking fountain, but she just

shrugged it off . . . I just found it

really unhygenic.”

from the editor’s desk

IF EVER a family deserved a stroke of

good luck it is the Duncan Caley’s.

On page 1 today, we highlight their

plight – a terribly ill child, dad’s out of

work and the house they bought

post-quake has major insurance issues.

Most of us have had quake insurance problems, but add on

the sick child and losing your job and it makes it one tough

mountain to climb – just to get to the start line.

So the community is rallying around to do what they can,

and a fundraising art auction will be held this month.

Event organiser Maureen Taane sums it up: “If there ever

was a whanau in need of assistance, this is the one.”

Bid to keep Prestons bus route

• By Sophie Cornish

PRESTONS subdivision

residents have come up with a

plan to keep their bus service.

They want to reroute the 125

bus which travels from Redwood

to Westlake and Halswell.

The bus currently turns

around in Farquhars Rd, Redwood.

But residents want the

route changed, so it travels to

Prestons and turns around at

the roundabout on Te Korari St.

Environment Canterbury

is planning to axe the 150

Kids day

out in the

red zone

Children’s Day was held on Sunday

in the red zone on New Brighton

Rd. The free event had children’s

activities including performing

arts, crafts, demonstrations, sports,

bouncy castles, climbing walls,

water-walkers and face-painting.

Several Christchurch organisations

and the city council put the event

together with the help of more than

200 volunteers.

PHOTO: MATTHEW PERCIVAL

bus route from The Palms to

Spencerville which travels

through Prestons as part

of several cutbacks across

Christchurch.

The 150 route is the only

bus which goes through the

subdivision.

Consultation is now open for

ECan’s 2018-2028 Long Term

Plan and the public is invited to

make submissions.

Prestons resident and frequent

bus user Connor Sanders

prepared and submitted the

proposal to ECan and has

received support from other

residents who have also made

submissions.

He included some advantages

and disadvantages of the reroute

in his proposal.

Advantages of the re-route

would mean Prestons residents

would be given access to areas

such as Northlands Mall, Bishopdale,

Avonhead, Hornby,

Halswell and the airport.

It would also save the cost

of removing several bus stops,

which were only placed a few

months ago.

The re-route would add

around 5min to the total trip

time.

One problem with his plan is

that the route would go through

2.5km of rural land where there

is no housing.

However Mr Sanders’

counter-argument is that the

125 bus already travels around

several stretches of fields around

Wigram and Halswell.

“I believe many would agree

this is a minor addition and

would hardly affect the profitability,”

he said.

WESTHAVEN TREE PROJECT

The timeframe for work on a

project in Westhaven, in which

residents identified trees and

infrastructure that need attention,

has been moved out due to the

number of trees involved and the

mapping of the area. An update

is expected to be given to the

Board about the project later this

month.

RAWHITI DOMAIN TREES

Seven hazardous trees will be

removed from Rawhiti Domain

due to concerns over public

safety. The work was scheduled

to start last week. The pine trees,

particularly their root systems,

have been identified as being in

poor condition. They are

located close to public paths

linking Keyes Rd and Shaw

Ave. The city council intends to

plant replacement trees in the

winter.

QUEENSPARK DRIVE SPEED

The Queenspark School

community is attempting to

get the speed limit changed on

Queenspark Drive to improve

Fitness fanatic councillors back on their bikes

CITY COUNCILLORS Mike

Davidson and Glenn Livingstone are

gearing up for a cycling duel in Le

Race on March 24, as part their 2018

sporting three-peat.

The two councillors have been cycling

partners for some time and last

year competed in Le Petit, the 50km

shorter version of Le Race.

This year they are hoping to lead

by example to promote healthy living

among Christchurch residents, by

completing the Coast-to-Coast, Le

Race and the Christchurch Marathon.

“I have done Le Race before, but

because of all this training, I am fitter

than any previous year,” said Cr

Davidson.

“This year I hope to finish Le

Race under four hours, but most

importantly I want to smash Glenn,”

he said.

Cr Livingstone isn’t too concerned.

“I just hope that I don’t embarrass

Mike,” he said.

Three weeks ago, both men

completed the two-day individual

event of the Coast-to-Coast.

FRIENDLY RIVALRY: City

councillors Mike Davidson and

Glenn Livingstone are competing

Celebration of surfing

THE THIRD annual

week-long celebration of surfing

in New Brighton and the visit of

legendary Hawaiian surfer Duke

Kahanamoku opens on Sunday.

The Ray White New Brighton

Duke Festival of Surfing is

organised by the New Brighton

Pier and Foreshore Promotion

Society and is the largest and

most varied surfing event in New

Zealand.

It celebrates Kahanamoku,

who is said to have introduced

surfing to New Zealand and

surfed in New Brighton in

1915.

What’s happening:

Sunday – The Boardroom

exhibition

The festival will launch with

The Boardroom exhibition in

New Brighton Mall, a display of

more than 100 surfboards.

The display is a time line

exhibition of loaned surfboards

over the past 70 years.

It will showcase varying

types, different designs and

materials used, as well as

historical displays of surfing

photographs with a focus on

New Brighton.

COMPETITION: North Wai Boardriders Club’s Estella Hungerford will be a top contender in the age group events.

Wednesday, March 14 – The

Stoke Art Exhibition 2018

This exhibition pulls together

creative people who find

common ground in surfing and

will explore what it is about

surfing that causes creative

drive, whether it is a physical,

emotional, visual, procedural or

metaphysical response, or

simply coincidence. It will be

shown in Fiksate Gallery and

will feature a range of emerging

and established artists from

both New Zealand and

overseas.

Friday, March 16 – outdoor

movie night

There will be two films shown

at the New Brighton amphitheatre.

The children’s movie is

Disney’s Moana and the second

is supported by the Aotearoa

Surf Film Festival with a feature

film Fish People and two short

surf films.

Friday, March 16, and

Saturday, March 17 – surfing

competition

The surfing competition begins

with the age group shortboard

events. Surfers from around

New Zealand and Australia

have confirmed entries. Age

groups include under-12 all the

way through to under-20 and

will feature a number of local

surfers such as Ava Henderson,

Estella Hungerford and Myka

Black. Ava and Estella recently

won their events at the Billabong

contest in Whangamata.

On Saturday, the longboard

events will begin with a range of

top competitors in all age groups

from the open premier sections

through to the over-40 women’s

and over-60 men’s.

There will also be open men’s

and women’s logger events,

which will provide some old

school surfing styles with more

traditional moves on heavier

single-fin longboards.

Saturday, March 17 – concert

There will be a smorgasbord

meal at the New Brighton Club

followed by a rock concert

featuring Soaked Oats, a South

Island band with a growing

reputation, and local band

Run77.

BATTLE: Connor before being diagnosed with his brain tumour.

(Right) – Connor in hospital while his sisters, Madden and

•From page 1

Mr Duncan-Caley said the

family’s situation was like “an

The money raised from the art

auction will help fund the costs

required for their life going forward.

“If there ever was a whanau

in need of assistance, this is the

Maureen Taane.

The auction called Jedi’s New

Hope because of Connor’s Star

Wars obsession will be held on

March 23.

“It is very much a communityled

and community-driven event,

as most things on the east side

are,” she said.

Within five days of launching

the event, 15 pieces of art had

already been donated.

The auction will be held at the

out. Said Mr Duncan-Caley:

“We’ve been extremely humbled

and gobsmacked by the

support from the community

. . . it has really lifted us.”

Freedom campers under fire again

•From page 1

South New Brighton resident

Andy Smith shared his concerns

about freedom campers with

Pegasus Post.

“They are pooing on our beach,

they are trashing the place with

rubbish,” he said.

Mr Smith, who took photos of a

tent set up near one vehicle, with

rubbish littered around it, said he

could smell faeces in the area.

A 2015 city council bylaw

requires campers to be selfcontained,

meaning it has toilet

facilities on-board which can be

deposited at a discharge point.

Freedom campers are banned

from New Brighton’s north and

south ramp car parks.

Livingstone.

Gym school

may get

$900k grant

• By Julia Evans

THE $9 million Christchurch

School of Gymnastics rebuild

could be boosted by $900,000.

At a meeting on Thursday,

city councillors will be asked to

approve the grant which would

contribute to the cost of the site

remediation before the school’s

rebuild at QE II Park.

A city council staff report said

the funds would be allocated from

the land sale proceeds it received

from the Ministry of Education

for a portion of QE II Park. The

cost of the rebuild is estimated to

be nearly $9 million. The school of

gymnastics has $5.3 million available

and has raised $487,000.

“It is likely that the funding

contribution from council will

act as an additional catalyst for

other funders to contribute to this

rebuild project,” the report said.

City councillors granted the

school a new lease in September

for 3151 sq m of land near the

new Eastern Recreation and Sport

Centre, which is expected to open

this year. It had been based at QE

II site for 21 years.

But the building was deemed

uneconomic to repair after sustaining

damage in the February

22, 2011 earthquake.

Tracking cats to protect widlife

• By Bridget Rutherford

A CANTERBURY University

student wants to track where

house cats venture to in a bid to

better protect Travis Wetland

Nature Heritage Park – and she

needs your feline’s help.

Olivia Silvester, a masters

student who lives near the

wetland, is doing a six-month

study on the adventures of

cats living within a one block

radius of the important native

habitat.

The study would involve

attaching GPS trackers to cats

residing in the area with harnesses,

so where they venture to

could be tracked.

The Burwood freshwater wetland

has 55 species living there,

including 35 natives.

The native short-fined eel,

an indigenous skink and about

half of Christchurch’s pukeko

population live there, as well as

a diverse variety of insects, birds

and invertebrates.

It has a moat to stop cats and

other pests from entering, but

some still find their way in.

Miss Silvester said she needed

about 30 cats to take part in

the GPS research, and wanted

owners to get in touch if they

were interested in their cat being

involved.

The GPS trackers would need

to be worn 24/7, she said.

“If the cat is uncomfortable

the harness can be taken off and

the study stopped for that cat.”

The study would look at

where the cats go, how far they

travelled and what they brought

home with them, she said.

“The wetlands have a large

biodiversity of wildlife from

insects to skinks and birds,” she

said.

“Alongside the harness study,

there will be a prey retrieval

study looking at what your cat

brings home. It will inform us of

the main prey items of local cats

and we can adjust conservation

efforts accordingly.”

STUDY: A new

initiative will put GPS

trackers on cats

living near the Travis

Wetland Nature

Heritage Park in a

bid to better protect

wildlife there, such as

the spotless crake.

About 100 cats were

needed for the prey retrieval

study.

The owner would be required

to note down the items their cats

brought home, and store them in

provided zip-lock bags.

Miss Silvester said she would

visit once a month, or more, to

take the items away.

She said the study would also

Temporary premises

for Smooth-Air

Throughout 2018, it’s business as usual

for ventilation equipment specialists,

Smooth-Air, as they operate from

temporary premises at 351c Blenheim

Road while their Annex Rd premises are

being rebuilt.

Due to re-open in early 2019, the

new building will be better suited to the

company’s needs and more efficient than

the previous one, marketing spokesperson

Kate Rattray says.

“In the meantime, we will be continually

moving onwards and upwards with

an increased product range to service

our commercial, trade and domestic

customers.

“We are also pleased to have on board

our new national sales manager Phil

Henderson, and new regional manager

Richard Jack. Their focus will be on

continuing to provide customers with

excellent service and advice,” Kate says.

Experts in providing quality of air for

domestic and commercial purposes,

Smooth-Air supplies equipment for all

types of ventilation systems including

ducting, grilles, diffusers and fans – in

fact, anything that moves air into, out of,

or around a building.

While the majority of customers are

trade, Smooth-Air also sells directly to

the public, with a range of extraction

and ventilation systems, as well as other

ventilation components for domestic use.

For the domestic market, the focus is on

cleaner, drier, warmer homes. Smooth-Air

has several ventilation systems designed

for the New Zealand climate. The HEX390

is a heat exchanger suitable for domestic

and commercial premises, exchanging

fresh air for stale, while reclaiming heat

(or cooling) from the expelled air.

Their HTU heat transfer unit is another

popular option, transferring heat from

log burners to other areas of the home,

improving energy efficiency and reducing

power consumption.

Smooth-Air also caters for large

commercial projects, with the capacity to

produce substantial quantities of TD panel

duct, as well as provide other specified

equipment, including AirChange heat

exchangers such as those used for the Jellie

Park Pool.

Their skilled workshop team builds

ducting components, and these can be

supplied from stock, or made to customer

specifications. With the purchase of a

new building in Christchurch, which is

dedicated to manufacturing, Smooth-

Air have recently more than doubled

their manufacturing capacity. Along

with their Auckland

and Wellington

workshops, Smooth-

Air’s workshop floor

space now totals nearly

3000sqm, and of the 80

staff nationwide, 30 are

dedicated workshop

staff members.

Engineering manager

Mike Nash oversees all

three workshops.

“As suppliers to

customers in all areas of

New Zealand, we pride

ourselves in doing the

job right first time.” Mike says.

“With manufacturing capability in

Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington

we are able to share workload across

locations, keeping manufacturing inhouse,

providing a flexibility to our

customers and reliability of supply by

cross-utilisation of resources.

“At Smooth-Air, our policy is to provide

a one-stop solution to all our customers

in the HVAC industry. As well as our

manufacturing prowess, we also have the

ability to source items from a wide range of

suppliers both locally and internationally.”

A nationwide operation, Smooth-Air’s

head office is Christchurch, with branches

located in Auckland and Wellington.

Their temporary Christchurch premises

are located at 351c Blenheim Road, just

round the corner from their original

Annex Rd site.

Centuries old folk

remedy supports

good health!

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an array of

powerful health benefits. It is none other than the

popular apple cider vinegar or ACV.

Since the time of Hippocrates – the

“Father of Medicine” – ACV has been

renowned for its curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS &

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis

reports how he found that Vermonters

who regularly consumed ACV and Honey

had excellent health with many putting in

a vigorous day’s work on the farm even

when well into their eighties. He also noted

the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients reporting

almost total relief after taking a course

of the mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider vinegar

counteracted calcium deposits and helped

the body control calcium use. He also noted

that Vermonters who consumed ACV and

H around meal time had excellent blood

pressure and circulation. The reason he

found was that protein foods thickened

the blood and vinegar thinned it. As the

blood thickens it cannot pass as easily

and quickly through the blood vessels and

capillaries. This poor blood flow

would reduce cellular health by

limiting nutrients to the cells as

well as waste elimination from the

cells. To prevent cell damage the

body naturally increases blood

pressure but this puts more stress

on the blood vessels, organs and

heart. Having ACV and H with

meals will help prevent protein

raising the blood pressure. It also

contributes to a feeling of greater

well-being because the thinner

blood circulates quickly and

more easily through the blood

vessels. Dr. Jarvis found regular

consumption of CV and H to be

an excellent health tonic with

numerous Health attributes.

ACV SUPPORTS

• Healthy digestion, assimilation of nutrients, elimination of wastes

• Energy – Vitality – Endurance

• Elimination of viruses, bacteria, fungus & parasites

• Powerful antioxidant

• Cardiovascular health, blood flow & healthy blood pressure

• Diabetes – improves insulin sensitivity

• Arthritis & joint support • Longevity & improved health

• Settles the stomach & reduces reflux

• Weight Loss

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all

the goodness of the apple in a form that is

readily accepted by the bodyGood health

starts with good digestion and assimilation

of nutrients. ACV taken before food will

stimulate and promote healthy digestion

and assimilation of vital nutrients for good

health. A well-functioning digestive system

helps prevent disease by neutralising any

toxic substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all ACV is

produced in the traditional way and results

are likely to prove disappointing with these

other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV & ACV

with 20% Manuka Honey is produced in

Canterbury from Organic whole apples in

you can use less.

What’s happening

at Lady Wigram

Retirement Village?

It’s been a busy few years for The

Golden Healthcare Group with their latest

development of Lady Wigram Retirement

Village on Kittyhawk Road. The first villas

were occupied in August 2015 and now 101

villas are completed.

In December, the club house opened

which provides a bowling green, hair

dressing salon, restaurant and bar, billiard

room, movie theatre and library. The Club

House has all the trimmings, including 16

one and two bedrooms Apartments. The

next stage will also include a swimming

pool, gym and a further 14 Apartments.

When speaking with one of their

residents about how he feels about the new

Club house, Mr Havill said “everyone is

so excited about it opening, we have all

been watching it very closely’. Mr Havill is

fascinated as to how the fountain works.

He has lived in the village for the past

few years, enjoying his new life style and

making friends. He has also picked up new

hobbies including learning to play mahjong,

“I love it, I had never played in my life”. Mr

Havill owned his own home for 44 years

and in that time he maintained the house,

painted it, did this... did that. “We don’t

have to do that anymore, this is my place for

the moment. Every villa is different, even

though they look the same. But you make it

your own”. One thing Mr Havill likes at this

age is “the gates shut at night, we can get in

but no one else can and that is an additional

sense of security for us”.

Owner John Tooby says “our residents

are very involved in the continuing

development of the village, they share our

pride in making this a great place to live. It’s

a real community and it continues to grow”.

How’s your LIVER doing?

Your liver affects how you feel, your

mood, hormones, energy and overall

health. In fact it carries out over 500 crucial

functions that are vital to maintain good

health. If your liver is under-performing as

is the case for most of us, it means that the

body has more toxins that could be setting

the stage for disease. Disease can normally

only survive if the environment is suitable.

A well performing body will generally have

a much better chance of staying healthy.

Some symptoms of an underperforming

liver can be: Fatigue, weakness, trouble

concentrating, confusion, dark urine, dark

circles under the eyes, yellow discoloration

of the whites of the eyes, bloating and gas,

dry and dark patches on the neck and

under arms, bruising easily, constipation,

skin spots and rashes, eczema, psoriasis,

hormonal problems, moody and many

more.

The liver is the only organ in the body that

can regenerate itself if the right conditions

are met. In most cases the liver function can

be improved relatively easily with diet and

lifestyle changes and nutritional support.

Natural herbal extracts like milk thistle,

dandelion, globe artichoke, burdock, grape

seed and turmeric have been shown to be

very effective at supporting detoxification,

digestion and liver function. These herbs

are food for the liver and body. They

provide the building blocks to allow the

liver to regenerate healthy cells. All these

ingredients are available in a high potency

one-a-day vegie capsule.

Fresh vegetable juices are an excellent way

to provide the body with easily absorbed

nutrients. They also help the liver detox the

body and support its regeneration.

Certain strains of probiotics have been

shown to support healthy digestion, liver

function and much more. A one-a-day

comprehensive high potency probiotic

is highly recommended to support good

health.

Apple cider vinegar as well as being highly

nutritious contains beneficial enzymes that

support healthy digestion, liver function

and absorption of nutrients.

As your liver function improves you will

notice increased energy, clearer skin, less

hormonal problems, better digestion, and

a positive mood and sharper mind just to

name a few.

Further detailed information on

how to support your liver and general

health is available from the Natural

Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health &

Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, phone 388-5757. We are always

happy to help!

Highly effective

treatment brings

Special offer - one treatment for

arthritis at half price for the first 10 people

who make an appointment before april 6.

‘amazing’ results

for arthritis patient

Anyone that suffers from arthritis will know the pain, discomfort

and sheer inconvenience this can cause in day-to-day life.

However, thanks to a highly effective treatment

offered by Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao,

they can get fast, and very often immediate relief.

Lan developed the treatment, known as

‘acupuncture without needles’, which she describes

as being similar to reflexology in that the problem

area on the body is determined through pressure,

but is much more accurate.

One client who was thrilled with the results of

this treatment, is Corinna Cornelius. Corinna was

having problems with her right hand after she overused

it following an injury to her left hand and it

became arthritic.

“I couldn’t close my hand up and make a fist, and

it was also very painful, especially if I knocked it.

This also made it very difficult to do everyday things

like picking up a cup of tea or cleaning my teeth,”

Corinna said.

After hearing about Lan’s treatment from a friend,

Corinna decided to give it a try, and was thrilled

with the results.

“The difference after one treatment was amazing.

My hand wasn’t painful and I could make a fist.”

A further six treatments followed, and Corinna

said while her hand was still slightly stiff, it was

improving every day and things were back to

normal. Following a holiday in Australia, she was

due to go back to Lan for a check-up, but didn’t

JUST UNLOADED

NEW RELEASES

The Wife’s Tale

A Personal History by Aida edermariam

The extraordinary story of an indomitable 95-year-old woman – and of the

most extraordinary century in Ethiopia’s history. A new Wild Swans

A hundred years ago, a girl was born in the northern Ethiopian city of Gondar.

Before she was ten years old, Yetemegnu was married to a man two decades

her senior, an ambitious poet-priest. Over the next century her world changed

beyond recognition. She witnessed Fascist invasion and occupation, Allied

bombardment and exile from her city, the ascent and fall of Emperor Haile

Selassie, revolution and civil war. She endured all these things alongside

parenthood, widowhood and the death of children.

The Wife’s Tale is an intimate memoir, both of a life and of a country. In prose

steeped in Yetemegnu’s distinctive voice and point of view, Aida Edemariam

retells her grandmother’s stories of a childhood surrounded by proud priests

and soldiers, of her husband’s imprisonment, of her fight for justice – all of it

played out against an ancient cycle of festivals and the rhythms of the seasons.

Kill the Angel

by Sandrone dazieri

A high-speed train from Milan draws into the station in Rome, and an

horrific discovery in one carriage rocks the city. Preliminary investigations

are put in the hands of Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli.

The police receive a message claiming responsibility for the act and

announcing more murders to come, and they duly turn their attention

to a small terrorist group of Islamic extremists. But investigator Dante

Torre does not believe this angle. For him, this feels like a smokescreen

concealing the actions of a killer who has a far more terrible motivation

to continue.

The trail leads to Berlin and Venice, where the waters of the Venetian

Lagoon will turn blood red...

Miss Burma

by Charmaine Craig

A beautiful and poignant story of one family during the most violent and

turbulent years of world history, Miss Burma is a powerful novel of love and

war, colonialism and ethnicity, and the ties of blood. Miss Burma tells the

story of modern-day Burma through the eyes of Benny and Khin, husband

and wife, and their daughter Louisa. After attending school in Calcutta, Benny

settles in Rangoon, then part of the British Empire, and falls in love with Khin,

a woman who is part of a long-persecuted ethnic minority group, the Karen.

Benny and Khin’s eldest child, Louisa, has a danger-filled, tempestuous

childhood and reaches prominence as Burma’s first beauty queen soon

before the country falls to dictatorship. As Louisa navigates her newfound

fame, she is forced to reckon with her family’s past, the West’s ongoing covert

dealings in her country, and her own loyalty to the cause of the Karen people.

Based on the story of the author’s mother and grandparents, Miss Burma is

a captivating portrait of how modern Burma came to be and of the ordinary

people swept up in the struggle for self-determination and freedom.

Chopper - From the Inside

by Mark Brandon read

“Apart from Irish whiskey, good cigars, Pontiac motor cars, and a pistol grip

baby .410 shotgun with solid load shells, what I love the most is kidnapping

smartarse gangsters and taking their money. To the human filth I have

bashed, belted, iron barred, axed, shot, stabbed, knee capped, set on fire and

driven to their graves, I can only quote from the motto of the French Foreign

Legion, ‘Je Ne Regrette Rien’...I regret nothing.” Mark Brandon ‘Chopper’

Read is the son of a strict Seventh Day Adventist mother and a shell-shocked

soldier who slept with a loaded gun at his side. Bullied at school, he grew

up dreaming of revenge, determined to be the toughest and hardest of

them all. He became a criminal legend who terrorised drug dealers, pimps,

thieves and armed robbers on the streets and in jail - but boasts he never

hurt an innocent member of the public. This first volume of Chopper’s

memoirs, written from inside jail, tells the story of his early life of crime - from

streetfighter to standover man, gunman to long-term prisoner. Chopper: From

the Inside is laced with his trademark brutal humour, and gives us a gripping

insight into Australia’s underworld.
