Red light

camera

returns

to nab

motorists

• By Julia Evans

THE CITY is about to get a

camera to catch red light-runners

– the first since the 1990s.

The camera is being installed

at the Bealey Ave and Madras

St intersection, but will move

around the city’s “high risk”

intersections, city council acting

head of transport Mark Pinner

said.

The list of intersections

and how long the camera will

remain in one place has yet to be

decided,” he said.

The camera records

vehicles travelling through

the intersection, the footage

is then put through software,

which detects red light-running

incidents.

Police and the city council

are investigating enforcement

options, Mr Pinner said, but he

said it would be run on the same

model as cameras currently used

in Wellington and Auckland.

“Council will be informing

motorists about red light camera

enforcement, and signage will be

part of that information.”

He said the city council has

launched the campaign to reduce

numbers, as crashes at signalised

intersections are a “really

significant” road safety problem

in the city.

“Traffic signal crashes are close

to a quarter of all crashes in the

city, with a social cost of about

$27 million per year.

Santa Parade could return to city

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE 72ND Christchurch

Santa Parade could return to

the central city this year for the

first time since the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

In its submission on the

city council’s draft Long

Term Plan yesterday the

Christchurch Children’s

Christmas Parade Trust asked

for $35,000 in funding.

Long-time volunteer

Squadron Leader Shane Cole

presented the submission to

city councillors alongside trust

chairwoman Anne Jamieson.

Squadron Leader Cole said

they hoped to run the parade

along Madras St with it to finish

at the Margaret Mahy Family

Playground.

He said the parade would

help reinvigorate the central

city, and finishing at the playground

would be perfect for the

children.

The trust is currently working

with the city council on making

this happen.

Squadron Leader Cole said

they hoped to include Latimer

Square in the plans, where food

vendors could set up.

Since the earthquakes the

parade has travelled along Riccarton

Rd.

The parade’s future had been

uncertain after struggling

financially. But last year, the

city council put $35,000 into

it.

MultiMedia Communications

agreed to sponsor the

event, taking up the naming

rights for this year’s parade and

next.

School decision fuels debate

• By Sarla Donovan

THE ARM-WRESTLE over

a new site for Redcliffs School

heated up again yesterday.

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Minister Megan Woods

has given approval for changes

to the District Plan, allowing the

school to be built on Redcliffs

Park.

Friends of

Redcliffs Park

spokesman

Chris Doudney

said the minister

had got it

wrong.

“I suspect the

Very much the

board hearing

last August

where our own submission

couldn’t be received or discussed

because the scope of the

argument was limited to considering

the school on the park.”

He said they wanted to get

more information about the

basis for the minister’s decision.

For seven years the school has

been operating from the Van

Asch campus in Sumner, after

earthquake-generated rockfall

at its former site.

In March 2015 the Government

proposed the school’s closure

but following community

outcry, it agreed in June 2016 to

return the school to Redcliffs –

provided it be established on a

different site.

Deputy principal Kate Mc-

Clelland was “thrilled” the

school will be rebuilt at Redcliffs

Park.

Said Ms McClelland: “After

seven years we’re very excited to

be finally able to return to our

home in Redcliffs. After all the

work that’s been done working

towards this day, we’re thrilled.”

Families and pupils were

notified yesterday morning,

shortly after the decision was

announced.

Board of trustees chairman

Darren Fidler was “happy and

relieved” at the news.

“We can finally get back. It’s

been a long seven years.”

He said it had been an open

and transparent process.

The minister put out all the

information that she used to

inform her decision so the due

process has been followed . . .

we’re looking forward to getting

back to the core business of

educating kids. That’s all we’ve

ever wanted to do and this has

been a massive distraction from

that.”

Hospital staff to get 200 more parks

• By Julia Evans

MORE THAN 200 temporary

car parks will be provided for

Christchurch Hospital staff.

Minister for Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods announced the

additional parking will be at the

Metro Sports Facility site on St

Asaph St.

It comes after a student nurse

was robbed and assaulted at

knife-point walking back to her

car through Hagley Park after a

late night shift.

The severe lack of parking at

Christchurch Hospital is widely

known and is creating real

problems for hospital staff,” Dr

Woods said.

However, there is still no

update for those fed up with the

conditions of the Deans Ave park

and ride service.

The Star has lead a campaign

calling on Christchurch MPs

and the Canterbury District

Health Board to fix the issues.

CDHB general manager

finance and corporate services

Justine White said additional

shelter is being discussed as part

of “overall planning” for the park

and ride service.

But she could not give

Facility site on

a specific time frame for

any announcement.

In April, potholes and dangerous,

uneven surfaces were filled

in at the Deans Ave park and

ride.

Dr Woods said work on

identifying other potential sites

for extra community parking is

continuing.

Work will start on the temporary

staff parks immediately.

“I’ve asked for work to begin

on this straight away, with an

aim of having the parking available

in the next two or three

months. These car parks will be

available for one to two years

while construction is under

way, reducing as construction

progresses,” she said.

New Zealand Nurses Organisation

organiser Christin Watson

said it is “really good news”

for hospital staff.

“We’ve been lobbying anyone

who will listen for a long term

. . . in terms of safety and security,

it gives us a lot more options,”

he said.

Mr Watson said while it was a

short to medium-term solution,

it would give them “breathing

room” to investigate long-term

solutions.

As the metro facility’s build

progresses, the number of parks

will be reduced.

These temporary parks will

help take the pressure off until a

permanent new car park is open

in 2020,” Dr Woods said.

is being done to fix the

Plan for Brougham St bottleneck

NZTA moves

to ease

congestion

• By Julia Evans

ONE OF the city’s busiest roads

is set to have its congestion issues

addressed.

Brougham St “corridor improvements”

have been included

in the draft transport agency

investment proposal

2018-27

released by the

New Zealand

Transport

Agency.

About 44,000

vehicles,

including 5000

Jim Harland

freight, use the

thoroughfare

from the Selwyn

district to Lyttelton Port each

day.

The Brougham St, State Highway

76 project is identified as a

proposed activity, which means

it will continue to be developed,

subject to its new alignment with

the Government policy statement

on land transport priorities,”

NZTA direction regional

relationships Jim Harland said.

The proposal includes a budget

of between $10 million-$100 million

for the upgrades to increase

flow along the street.

The work would be completed

before 2021, while a detailed

business case and design

would begin when the plan

was approved by Environment

Canterbury’s regional transport

committee before August 31.

The plan said NZTA will work

with partners, including the

city council and Selwyn District

Council, to “investigate appropriate

solutions” to congestion

along Brougham St to the Rolleston

Corridor, which connects

Selwyn to the Lyttelton Port.

“Doing so will improve

customer access between the

south of the city to Lyttelton Port

and help reduce congestion in

Christchurch’s south-western

suburbs,” the plan said.

It comes as Selwyn Mayor Sam

Broughton raised his concerns

about congestion on the motorway

during the city council’s

Long Term Plan hearings.

Mr Broughton said he anticipates

congestion will get worse

the longer the corridor is left as

it is.

MARTIN

HUNTER

The southern end of the motorway

connecting to Brougham

St is a major cause of transport

delays to the wider travelling

public, which is expected to

get worse as time goes on,” Mr

Broughton said.

This was inevitable with the

expected population increases in

both Selwyn and Christchurch,

he said.

City council manager planning

and delivery transport

Lynette Ellis said it would work

with NZTA to “effectively and

efficiently” keep the transport

network running, including

City’s roads

get $10m

boost

• By Julia Evans

THE CITY’S road maintenance

budget will receive a $10 million

cash injection.

But the additional New Zealand

Transport Agency funding only

puts the level of service in line

with other cities around the

country, city council manager city

streets maintenance Mark Pinner

said.

The $10m represents an

increase over total budget approved

by NZTA from $145m for

the 2015-18 three-year period, to

$155m for the 2018-21 period,” he

said.

Mr Pinner said the extra funding

would go towards resealing

damaged roads around the city.

“Obtaining the ‘extra’ level of

investment will still only deliver

an equivalent level of services to

other NZ cities in an anticipated

20-year horizon.”

The additional money equates

to about 10km of additional sealing

annually, Mr Pinner said.

Of the $155 million, NZTA

would be paying 51 per cent,

while the council would contribute

49 per cent.

Demand for

window and glass

cleaning has risen

since the quakes as

new buildings have

popped up. Bridget

Rutherford reports

WALKING THROUGH the

central city, all you need to do

is look up and you see glass.

It seems almost every new

building that has popped up

since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake has incorporated it

into the design.

But with glass, comes the

much trickier job of cleaning it

– and cleaning companies are

seeing the demand skyrocket.

Goleman Group chief

executive Joel Matsis said it

has seen a massive increase in

demand for window and glass

cleaning services since the

earthquakes.

“Before the quakes, we were

very much the only company

in town,” he said.

There’s a lot more

competition out there in the

market. It’s good to keep us on

our toes.”

Goleman Group specialises

TRICKY: Goleman Group window cleaners were working on the Deloitte building on

Tuesday.

in window and glass cleaning,

including high rise buildings,

and anything on the outside of

commercial buildings.

Mr Matsis said before the

quakes, the buildings were

relatively boring and the

windows were easier to access

and clean.

New buildings had more

glass and different angles, so

they were a lot more technical

to clean and expensive, he

said.

The architects really went

to town,” he said.

“Around the central city, a

lot more buildings are coming

up with a lot more glass. On all

the new buildings, the glass is

very noticeable.”

For your

special

lady on

clean the city’s windows

day

But with the new buildings

has come different ways to

clean them. Previously, they

were a lot taller, so more rope

access was required.

However, now the height

limit has been reduced, windows

could be accessed using

machinery, which was a lot

faster, Mr Matsis said.

He said Goleman Group had

purchased more machinery as

a result.

In Christchurch, Goleman

Group has about 30 technicians,

20 of whom were on the

window cleaning high ropes.

All staff had comprehensive

training before being able to

start working on the ropes.

Every building had different

requirements when it came

to cleaning its windows. They

had just finished doing the

HSBC Building on Worcester

Boulevard, and were cleaning

the Deloitte building this

week.

“Safety has got to be the

priority.’’

Many people approached

the company wanting jobs for

the thrill of it.

“After six months it’s just

another job,’’ Mr Matsis said.

JetX manager Marc Walker

had “definitely” seen a jump

in demand in the past two or

three years as the central city

buildings were constructed.

“In terms of window cleaning

and abseilers, work has

doubled at least,” he said.

These new facades are just

glass, glass, glass.”

He said they had about

seven or eight abseilers, many

of whom had backgrounds in

rock climbing or abseiling so

they did not have a problem

with heights. All were specially

trained.

“We’re finding it’s getting

busier and busier.”

Mr Walker said some of the

new buildings were not practical

to clean, which meant they

took a lot longer.

They had worked on high

rise buildings such as the

PWC building, the Justice and

Emergency Services Precinct,

Grand Central and The Crossing.

Mr Walker said PWC would

have taken four abseilers about

a week to do. The Justice and

Emergency Services Precinct

would take a lot longer because

of its sheer size, he said.

Ministry of Justice commercial

and property general

manager Fraser Gibbs said it

was finalising a contract for

the regular cleaning of the

precinct’s windows.

“It is anticipated that the

ground floor windows will be

cleaned once a month while

the windows above ground

level will be washed every

three months (quarterly) by

abseilers.”

Mr Gibbs was unable to say

what the ongoing costs would

be as it was commercially

sensitive and subject to negotiation.

Meanwhile, the cost of

cleaning the outside of the

city council’s civic offices’

windows is $56,000 annually.

Head of facilities, property

and planning Bruce Rendall

said several different contractors

were used to clean the

windows.

He said the exterior windows

were normally cleaned

quarterly, which required

abseilers.

It was currently trialling

whether the frequency could

be reduced which would lower

the $56,000 cost.

‘I’m keeping out of trouble’

• By Bridget Rutherford

and Geoff Sloan

A FORMER male prostitute

who was once deemed a public

health risk and put into isolation

for knowingly spreading

HIV to other men is back on

Christchurch streets busking.

Christopher Ian Truscott was

put into secure care in 1999

under the Health Act by the

Canterbury Medical Officer of

Health after being convicted

for having sex with four men

without telling them he was

HIV-positive.

He claimed he had sexual

relations with thousands of

men while being HIV-positive.

Truscott is no longer in secure

care and took up busking about

six weeks ago.

The Star spoke to him yesterday

on New Regent St, where he

was dressed up and doing his

skit ‘Statue Man’ in which he

pretends to be a statue.

“I’m keeping out of trouble,

and I’m keeping it that way,” he

told The Star.

“It’s easier to get in trouble, it’s

harder to get out.”

Truscott was kept under

intense supervision for 10

years until 2009 in various

Government-funded locations,

including in Merivale and

Selwyn, at a cost of up to

$300,000 a year.

He escaped multiple times,

often going back to Hagley Park

where one of his sexual liaisons

occurred.

Canterbury Medical Officer

of Health Cheryl Brunton said

Truscott’s supervision ended

some years ago and he was now

a “private citizen.”

Dr Brunton said the Canterbury

District Health Board was

not aware of Truscott’s busking,

as it posed no threat to public

health.

“HIV cannot be passed on

by casual contact or being in

the same geographical area as

(an) infected person with HIV.

Transmission of HIV requires

close contact with blood or

bodily fluids.”

Truscott said he had been

busking every day around

central city tourist spots and

Cathedral Square’s Friday Street

Food Market for about six weeks

Not Ghostbusters but

The city council, Central

City Business Association,

have been working

on a plan to make the area

safer and get homeless

people and beggars the

help they need.

Reinstating the ambassador

programme, which

was set up in 2007 and saw

security guards in red jackets

patrol the central city, is

being investigated.

It could include specially

trained staff walking

around and speaking with

beggars and homeless

people to see what their

situation is, and if they

needed a home.

It would tie in with the

Housing First initiative,

which will get people into

homes, and then support

them with any other issues

they may be facing.

fact if there is somebody

sitting in a hotel doorway,

homeless: Who will you call?

“That’s where the ambassadors

come in – they are a frontline

person out there who will make

first contact with people on the

street.

They start the process from

the footpath to the whare.”

In the past, central city

businesses had been concerned

with the number of homeless

people and beggars in the area,

saying some could intimidate

customers and staff.

Cr Galloway said these were

“our people” and the group

wanted to approach the situation

compassionately.

“But we also want people to

feel safe in the central city and

unfortunately having people

on the street along Hereford

St for example, does not give a

perception of safety.”

Cr Galloway said there was

still a lot of work to be done on

the idea, but it was going

to happen “in one form or

another.”

The staff would also help curb

other anti-social behaviour, be

the “eyes and ears” of police, and

help tourists and visitors.

Association has asked for about

the city council’s budget each

anti-social problems, some of

which would start to arise as the

central city changed.

“We want a safe central city

that people can feel comfortable

walking around in at any time of

the day,” he said.

“If anti-social behaviour is left

unattended, it increases.”

• By Bridget Rutherford

BECOMING THE eyes and ears

of police, helping visitors, and

identifying hazards could be

added to parking wardens’ job

descriptions.

That’s if the Central City Business

Association has its way.

The association has asked the

city council for funding to reinstate

its ambassador programme

in the draft Long Term Plan to

curb anti-social behaviour in the

central city.

It has suggested parking

wardens could be up-skilled to

assist.

“We thought that parking

wardens tend to get a bad rap, it

must be a hard job. They do have

quite a lot of turnover of staff

in that area. It could give them

a slightly wider brief that’s a bit

more exciting and a bit more

fun,” Business association manager

Paul Lonsdale said.

They could double act as a

city host, helping people get

around the city and combine

that with the ambassador programme.”

had merit.

The strength is these folk are

there anyway, they are out there

doing their job. There may be

some prepared to do that, and

there may be some who perhaps

might think that’s not their role

at all.”

said the idea had merit, and

Quarry battle takes ugly turn

VANDALISED: Curraghs Rd resident Simon Moore with

his damaged no quarry sign.

• By Anan Zaki

THE BATTLE over a proposed

Templeton quarry has taken an

ugly turn.

Residents on Curraghs Rd who

opposed the quarry had their

roadside signs forcibly removed

by an unknown culprit for a

third time in three weeks.

The latest incident occurred

last week and the culprit took

down a mailbox, a sign on a gate,

along with roadside signs, angering

Curraghs Rd resident Simon

Moore.

They were there Monday

night and were down Tuesday

morning,” he said.

Mr Moore said even though

he lived across the Christchurch

city border in Selwyn, he and his

Weedons neighbours supported

the Templeton Residents’ Association’s

fight against the quarry.

“It’s gone a bit nasty to be honest,”

Mr Moore said.

The incidents have not been

reported to the police but he

warned if there is another attempt

to forcibly remove the

signs, they would be caught

red-handed.

He has put in hidden cameras.

The footage would then be

passed onto police, Mr Moore

said.

“So we will wait till the cameras

arrive before we put even

bigger signs up,” he said.

Mr Moore did not believe one

of his neighbours removed the

signs as they were all against the

proposed quarry.

“We are opposed to the quarry

because it will end up close to

our houses,” he said.

Mr Moore blamed the incident

on supporters of the quarry and

did not believe a local authority

was responsible for their

removal.

He also delivered a message for

those responsible.

“Leave them alone, they are

not your property and don’t start

taking retribution against people

who want to have a right to their

say,” Mr Moore said.

Templeton Residents Association

chairman Garry Kilday believed

the incidents were isolated

to Curraghs Rd.

He called on quarry supporters

to express their views by

making signs similiar to the

anti-quarry signs.

“Don’t remove an anti-quarry

sign, put ‘I support the quarry

on your gate post’,” Mr Kilday

said.

Last month Templeton residents

who had more than one

sign on display were ordered to

remove them or face a $300 by

the city council.

Supermarket gets mobile

COUNTDOWN IS getting out

into the community.

Over the next 11 weeks the

supermarket’s new mobile

bus will be out in different

locations around the city hosting

barbecues and giving out free

samples.

“We’re really excited about the

launch of our new Countdown

mobile bus. We can’t wait to

out to the wider community,”

spokeswoman Kiri Hannifin

said.

“Over the coming months,

we want to take the bus across

community events as we can.

We’re really passionate about

helping and being involved in

the communities in which we

operate.”

The bus has already visited

Bottle Lake Forest and several

local schools, she said.

“Hopefully over the next

couple of months you will see us

in your local community. Come

and say: ‘Hi,’ as we’re giving out

loads of free fruit, water and lots

range,” Ms Hannifin said.

While the bus is making its

“We’re also helping to

fundraise money for several

Bid to prevent

boy racers from

accessing red zone

BOY RACERS doing burnouts

in the residential red zone has

led to a call for the placement of

barriers to be reviewed.

The Burwood East

Residents’ Association says

some closed streets can be

accessed by vehicles, due to wide

spaces between the barriers and

the fences around the vacant

land.

In the letter to the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board,

association secretary Gae Johns

said Stour Drive, particularly the

intersections of Priory Close and

Vivian St, are popular areas for

burnouts to occur.

“We have witnessed a couple

of burnt out vehicles and rubbish

dumpings as access alongside the

barriers is an easy access point for

those who wish to ignore them,”

Ms Johns wrote.

Areas along Stour Drive are

also a popular place for residents

to dump unwanted household

goods, she said.

But residents are too far away

to take photographs of boy racers,

therefore making a complaint to

the police is a “fruitless” action

without any evidence, Ms Johns

said.

FOLLOWING IN the footsteps

of polar explorer Ernest

Shackleton is something many

Antarctic scientists only dream

of.

But for Canterbury University

Associate Professor Wolfgang

Rack that will be a reality in

January when he joins an expedition

with the hope of discovering

Shackleton’s ship 100 years

after it sank in the Weddell Sea.

“Using a ship makes it possible

to go to places you can’t go by

air, it’s normally very difficult

with the sea ice . . . you need an

icebreaker,” Prof Rack said.

Where countless expeditions

have failed to find the wreckage,

higher chance as the technology

being used is similar to that

MH370, thought to have crashed

in the Indian Ocean four years

ago.

Just last week, the search for

the airliner discovered two 19thcentury

wreckages off the coast

of Australia,

Prof Rack is one of two Canterbury

scientists set to board the

South African icebreaker ship,

Agulhas II. The other is yet to be

named.

The expedition will cruise

to the last known location of

Shackleton’s ship, recorded in

the diaries of Akaroa navigator

Frank Worsley.

Once there the autonomous

underwater vehicles will be sent

down. The AUVs can get to

depths of nearly 6000m, while

the ship is thought to be about

3000m down.

“It’s the first time this technology

has been used like this . . .

the expedition has a lot of firsts,”

Prof Rack said. “It’s ice-breaking

but it’s also ground-breaking.”

He said he grew up hearing

the stories of Shackleton and

the crew of the Endurance,

which was caught in sea ice and

crushed in Antarctica’s Weddell

Sea.

“His heroic achievements are

amazing. Losing the ship, but the

whole team survived. It’s a story

like no other.”

But even if the ship is not

found, he said it would not be

a wasted trip. “Just being in a

place he has been and where the

ship sank will be incredible . . . a

highlight.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

for sunken Shackleton ship

Prof Rack’s wife Ursula

is an Antarctic historian at

Canterbury University.

“She’s been collecting books

about Shackleton for me to read

before I go . . . I would say she

might be a little bit jealous.”

But searching for Endurance

is just a side note to the main

purpose of the trip – studying

Antarctic sea ice and one of

Antarctica’s great ice shelves,

Larsen C.

“We are bringing down drone

technology, which will be used in

conjunction with the unmanned

submarines. It will be interesting

to compare measuring the ice

from above as well as below,”

Prof Rack said.

The AUVs will be sent under

the ice shelf into some caverns

of ocean which have never been

sampled before.

Prof Rack said the research will

teach them a lot about climate

change and how ice shelves and

sea ice interacts.

He said there will be a great

deal of preparation before setting

off. “There are a lot of challenges

to prepare for. This is a cruise

into pack ice, which can be very

dangerous,” he said.

And, even after 15 trips to the

ice, he still isn’t used to the cold.

“It’s very exciting. For me,

this is the first time on board

a research vessel,” Prof Rack

said, although he has been to

Antarctica several times before.

Following Shackleton’s footsteps

•Sir Ernest Shackleton

(1874-1922) was a British

polar explorer, who lead

three expeditions to

Antarctica.

•Shackleton was knighted

after his second trip in

1908 by King Edward VII.

•Disaster

struck his third

expedition in

1915 when his

ship, Endurance,

became

trapped in ice in

the Weddell Sea

and was slowly

crushed, sinking

10 months later.

The crew fled

the boat and

lived on the sea

ice until early

1916 when they drifted on

ice floes and in lifeboats

to Elephant Island, near

the northern tip of the

Antarctic Peninsula.

•From there, Shackleton

and five others sailed

1280km in a small lifeboat

Ernest Shackleton

to the sub-polar island

of South Georgia, where

they arrived at a whaling

station.

•Shackleton then made

four attempts to rescue

his remaining crew from

Elephant Island, until he

finally reached

them on a

Chilean steam

tug at the end of

August 1916.

•All 27 crew

members

survived,

returning to

Britain via New

Zealand.

•Shackleton’s

account of the

Endurance’s

expedition, South,

was published in 1919.

•In 1921, he returned to

Antarctica, but died of

a heart attack while his

ship was moored at South

Georgia Island.

•At his wife’s request, he

was buried there.

McCleary bows

out of race at 87

You can’t miss The Cheesecake

Shop Edgeware with its dark green

façade and tower-like store front located

on the corner of Warrington St and Hills

Road, Edgeware, Christchurch.

In the lead up to Mother’s Day and

The Cheesecake Shop Edgeware’s first

anniversary this May, owners Ethan

and Selina reflected on the past year

“It’s been fantastic getting to know the

community over the last year. There was

a lot of excitement when we first opened

with many locals being familiar with The

Cheesecake Shop brand from visiting

Australia.”

When asked what their most popular

cake is the small business owners

replied, “Cheesecakes were very popular

at the start, as a common misconception

people have is that we only sell

cheesecakes, but they are pleasantly

surprised to see that we also have a

great range of tortes like our ever popular

Black Forest Torte, mudcakes, such

as our Belgian Double Choc as well as

much loved desserts like the Pavlova and

Lemon Meringue.”

The duo says what they love most

about serving delicious cake to the

people of Christchurch is the happiness

that it brings. “It’s a happy business.

When you open up the box in the store

and they see the cake, the smile that

lights up their face really makes our day

– everyday!”

The team at The Cheesecake Shop

Edgeware are proud of their focus on

customer service and the quality of the

products they produce in their bakery.

“Our products are made using only the

finest ingredients, some of which are

locally sourced such as the first-rate

fresh cream used in the majority of our

cakes which really does make a world

of difference in the taste of the product,

whilst other ingredients are imported

from Australia and Europe.”

Be sure to visit The Cheesecake

Shop Edgeware this week for

Mother’s Day specials and to pick

something special up for Mum!

TRIBUTES HAVE flown

in for motorcycle legend

Tommy McCleary.

Mr McCleary, 87, died on

April 26 after losing a battle

with cancer.

His impacts were particularly

felt in Wigram,

through

his

41-year

membership

with the

Wigram

Lions

Club.

Tommy

McCleary

Mr Mc-

Cleary’s

wife of

35 years,

Judith, described him as

a “generous” and “kindhearted”

man.

He made a lasting impression

on many people

across Christchurch, she

said.

Mr McCleary began

riding motorcycles as a

15-year-old and made his

competitive racing debut

in 1947 at Halkett, west of

Christchurch. He enjoyed

a glittering career, winning

18 New Zealand championship

titles.

Mr McCleary also won

the junior race in the first

New Zealand Grand Prix

to be broadcast live on

radio, and finished runner

up in the senior race.

He took off his helmet for

the last time in 1966.

Post-racing, Mr Mc-

Cleary served as the

Tait, said Mr McCleary

made a number of contributions

to the community

and could not single out a

“He was blessed with

and he always had a

Steve Thomas – I suggest

Aaron Keown might book in for

will be cows to milk, bees to

feed and fellows who share his

views. Or maybe he should join

the circus and train as a clown?

He has the right stuff. How do

Pete Roberts – So

everybody (including the women

there) has a good laugh, and

even the mayor has a laugh and

can’t bring herself to tell him

to pull his head in because it

was a stupid, offensive thing to

say, and then she basically said

it was okay to say it in another

environment, just not there.

Natasha Layton CCC get

Allie Moreland – I worked

in that business park for a

few years and parking was a

nightmare for staff. I lived across

town with a child to drop off so

didn’t have time to spend waiting

around for a bus to then to get to

work (and bus routes didn’t suit).

If I couldn’t get a park at a reasonable

distance I parked in the

restricted parking and moved

my car every break so I didn’t

break the restrictions. Not sure

what staff of the business park

are meant to do when there’s not

enough parking provided on site

for them?

Helen Neni Dobson – For

goodness sake. Lighten up and

get over yourselves. We have lost

the will to laugh at ourselves. A

sure sign that we are constantly

trying to find someone else to

blame for our shortcomings.

Matt Cuthill – How about

concentrating on fixing the

roads, building a stadium, a

proper metro sports facility,

and getting rid of the eyesores

including the Cathedral?

Angela Bell – Who

cares, I mean get the hell over

yourselves. “Incredibly sexist” is

a woman who has no say in who

she is sold off to in marriage.

John Dunphy – “Merivale

Rob Eder – It’s not the staff’s

problem, it should fall back to

the council or developers. When

these business parks are built

there’s never enough parks for

the people who work there. Same

as the one down Cranford St

where there’s cars parked up and

down the road sides. When these

business parks are first build

they should be a requirement to

provide car parks off the street

for the number of people who

work there. If they can’t then

don’t allow them to be built so

Hayley Lyel – Worked at that

business park for a year and was

pregnant with twins with a bad

disc problem in my back. I wasn’t

allowed to park on site so I literally

“waddled” two blocks to get

to work in the end. The people to

blame here are the business park

owners who allowed this to be

built without sufficient parking

for staff. I feel for the residents

it must be awful but it was the

worst decision to move a call

staff plus the other businesses.

Also public transport is amazing,

Opinion

•From page 21

Bill Misselbrook - Consent

for new building developments

should include provision for

adequate parking space for employees

and customers/visitors.

Too easy.

Jaed During - Funny. Didn’t

a bar lose its operating licence

because it didn’t provide enough

car parks? I loathe hypocrisy!

We have had the opportunity

through natural disaster to do

things effectively with our city

and yet here’s another example

that those in power (and on

high incomes) are

incompetent.

Sheryl Rodgers

- Why is

they not out there

ticketing them

every day? The

only reason people

continue to park

is because they get

away with it! I live in the area and

have seen it on my street. Once

the cars are ticketed more than

once, they stop parking there.

Alistair Price - It is only

illegal because the CCC created

bylaws to try and fix a problem

that was of its own making by

allowing a developer to build and

have insufficient car parking for

the use intended of the premises.

When the Styx development was

proposed neighbouring residents

were very concerned about the

lack of parking within the centre

and the impact of staff parking in

streets around the development.

The developer and the CCC did

not care at all. When Botany

Town Centre (Auckland) was

built the local council insisted

that all staff car parking had to be

on site.

Paula Jones – There’s parking

at the business park if you

want to pay for it, it’s just horrendously

expensive if your work

place is too tight to pay

for parking for you and

each business only gets

allocated a certain number

of parks. I worked

there for 18 months and

had one car written off

thanks to someone wiping

out three cars plus

himself, as we use to park

on Russley Rd opposite

but when they took that away

it just moved the problem and

made it worse.

Rachael Brown - Perhaps

they should take the bus?

Jo Zervos – Now they will

put in bike lanes there to discourage

the use of cars.

this new one.

He was saying that the city

needed to provide the right

environment to support these

businesses that were opening up

these north facing buildings to

the Square.

He then showed us the image

of the new building. It has been

designed by no less than Shigeru

Our People

Kirsa Webb

Digging up the city’s history

Underground Overground archaeologist Kirsa Webb

says there has been a boom in archaeology since

the earthquakes. She talks to Julia Evans about

what a day looks like excavating sites and some

of the cool things she has dug up

What does a ‘normal’ day

look like for an archaeologist?

Well, basically we get jobs that

get called in all the time. At the

start of the day we might not

know if we’re going to a site or

not unless we’ve been on a site

the previous day. Most of our

jobs are quite short term so we

go to a site in the morning for

half the day and that’ll be it.

Most of our work is monitoring

construction and demolition of

buildings around the city. You’ll

start out, come to the office, and

by about 10am, you get a call out

to go to a site. You really have no

idea what your day might look

like when you arrive to work.

What happens at a site?

We’ll go to the site and

have a look at whatever the

contractors have found and

sort of determine the age of it,

when it was deposited, and try to

figure out what the context was

as well. How it was deposited, by

whom, whether it was a domestic

deposit or commercial, just

anything like that. Sometimes

you might get just an individual

fragment of glass or an

individual bone or it might be

something more substantial like

a whole rubbish deposit. Even

with rubbish we’re right in there

– if it’s pre-1900 rubbish, we’re

all over it.

What kind of things do the

artefacts tell you?

It tells us a lot about pre-1900

life in Christchurch. Basically

if it’s a domestic deposit it

could tell us how people lived

their lives while they were at

home, what sort of food they

were eating, what sort of class

they fitted into, what sort of

tableware they had, things like

that. Whether or not there were

children on the site. Quite often

we find artefacts that are related

to children and I’ve

got some children’s

artefacts here. They

might include

a little tea set

or children’s

plates with

stories

on them.

Sometimes we

find clothing

items and shoes,

we can tell what

clothing they

wore. We can

tell what sort of

fibres, whether

the items were

fashionable

and where they

sat in society.

That’s the whole

point of it. Just

to learn more

about society

and culture in Christchurch in

the 19th-century.

What are some of the coolest

things you have found?

We always get asked this

question, every time. We

do find some really cool

stuff. It depends, though.

All archaeologists have their

favourite items to find. For

me, smoking pipes are usually

quite cool. They’re cool to

look at, nice to handle, a lot of

them have really cool looking

designs on them as well. In

the shape of heads or fish or

animals. We have found quite

a few cool pocket watches. Of

course, they’re not as nice as

they once were. They’ve been in

the ground for more than 150

years. In terms of artefacts, we

also might find one individual

bottle from a country overseas

that we’ve never found anything

from before. It might be quite a

mundane artefact, but because it

earthquakes.

HUNTER

comes from somewhere other

than England or Australia, that

makes it an incredible cool. It’s

all about context. I’d be pretty

stoked if I found any of those on

a site.

How did the earthquakes

impact archaeology in

Christchurch?

There was definitely a boom.

There’s always been legislation

in place to protect archaeology

and pre-1900 sites. But prior to

the Christchurch earthquake,

everyone claimed ignorance

or did not know that there was

legislation. When CERA, and

later Otakaro, came in, they

heavily supported that legislation

through their managed demolitions.

Our company came in

right from the start and worked

with CERA to see that their obligation

under the legislation was

met. So we worked very closely

just after the earthquake to manage

their work and make sure all

the archaeology was recorded as

things were either demolished or

excavated. The earthquake, while

horrendous, has been a great

opportunity to study our city. If

we hadn’t had the archaeologists

on site from the get-go, all of the

context and history would’ve just

been lost. I’m sitting in my office

and there’s about 1000 boxes of

artefacts, there’s another one or

two storage containers

just filled with

artefacts. There’s huge

amounts that have

been discovered.

Are there any sites from

around the world that you

would love to study?

When I first started at university,

I really wanted to be able to

research ancient

hominids,

ancient

humans.

But gradually

I got

side-tracked

into historical

archaeology.

The first papers

you take at

university go through ancient

human history. I wanted to do

that but to get to Africa can be

quite difficult. You have to pay

to volunteer onto an excavation

site and it can be quite hard to

get into the country sometimes.

When I first started I thought

that would be quite cool, roaming

around Africa looking for

human remains.

How did you end up being an

archaeologist in Christchurch?

Archaeology is my second

degree. There weren’t many jobs

around when I graduated, so I

went to work in retail and on

orchards. Then the earthquakes

happened. I was literally sitting

in my supervisor’s office about

to go back to university and

start my master’s. But he said

don’t you want to go and work in

Christchurch. A couple of weeks

later I was here and I’ve never

left. I was only offered a couple

of months work; we thought

everything would be over in two

years. I just haven’t left. It was a

great opportunity to get handson

experience. I’ve built a career

out of archaeology in the city.

Have you always been

fascinated with history?

Where I grew up on the

Otago Peninsula, there’s a

whole landscape of Victorian

dairy farms. I was a free-range

child, so I would just spend

afternoons and weekends

roaming around and looking at

these old buildings. I’ve always

been interested in the history of

communities.

Is your family interested in

history?

My parents aren’t especially

interested in history, but my

uncles have researched our

genealogy and history. My

father’s family is from Lyttelton.

They were quite well-known –

Webb Lane was named after my

family. There were three brothers

and each of them served as

mayor in Lyttelton over the late

19th-century. It is really cool to

go back and research the history

of your family as part of your

job. We’ve done a lot in Lyttelton

but haven’t been physically on

any of their properties. We have

done work on one of their farms

that they leased.

What other hobbies do you

have?

I’m pretty heavily involved in

bonsai at the moment, which

is kind of still digging up old

things – it’s just old trees. That’s

my main other passion that isn’t

archaeology. I go outside and

spend time with my tree when I

get home. Watering, re-potting,

pruning, there’s a lot of work

that goes with having a bonsai

tree. I’m a member of the bonsai

club. It’s quite a big thing in

Christchurch, there are two

bonsai clubs. We recently had a

display at the garden show and

it’s our club’s 50th anniversary

this year. Otherwise, I’m a bit of

a sci-fi fan, when I get time – I

just finished Lost in Space.

Sydenham

Food

Atmosphere

Decor

Service

We both knew from the awkward pause from the

5th Street waitress we had done something very

wrong indeed when we ordered. We had failed to

understand how the menu worked.

Now let me fetch a whiteboard and some visual

aids while I try to explain this to you.

The menu has “small, “medium” and” large” plates.

Great, I hear you think, that means I can have a

smaller meal while my friend chows down.

Aha! No indeed. Small plates are starters. Large

plates come with a “protein only” policy. To get

veggies you need to order a medium plate, which

we hadn’t done.

The waitress explained it again, pleading us with

her eyes to get it. She waited expectantly.

I looked at the lad, he looked at me and we both

looked at the waitress. She wasn’t going anywhere.

I gave in first and ordered the $16 roasted baby

carrots.

To soothe our frazzled nerves, we took in the truly

sumptuous decor, pleasant lighting and music. The

venue is top notch.

But to the food. I’ve put it off long enough. Oh

dearie me.

We are big fans of 5th Street’s sibling across the

road, Hello Sunday, but the passion behind that food

has not transferred across.

The lad’s smoked brisket wontons with sriracha

mayonnaise starter, $12, was bitter as the filling had

burnt bits. There was no sriracha detected.

I had fried chicken bites with wasabi mayonnaise.

The batter was burnt and bitter. The chicken was

almost non-existent and very overcooked.

For main, he had venison with beetroot and

butternut purees, $28. The lad being a chef, was

gobsmacked this meal had been allowed to leave

the kitchen. Overcooked was an understatement.

But, of course, I said I would be able to deal to it,

waste not want not and all that. In it popped and

a battle ensued with the meat bouncing merrily

around in my mouth, my teeth failing to get traction.

It was the first time I have ever had to discreetly

spit out food. We shared a couple of bites of my fish

main, but abandoned it quickly.

The spring carrots had gone through a terrible

trauma and were shrivelled darkened shells of what

they once were.

We didn’t have the heart to order dessert - we

were too stunned. We left after eating a wonton, two

chicken bites, a carrot, a piece of venison and fish

and paid $108.

Oh dearie me indeed.

When an establishment tries to be achingly hip,

sometimes they miss what they are there to do. And

that is to produce beautiful food.

Rooftop restaurant

in the city

A rooftop restaurant and bar could have one of

the best views in the city when it opens on top of

Cathedral Square’s Spark building next year. Spark will

be the anchor tenant in the building at 2 Cathedral

Square, which will open in August 2019. At a city

council hearing last week, Spark head of South Island

Paul Deavoll said the ground floor would have high

end retail stores and hospitality. “The top level of the

building’s got an outdoor hospitality space, effectively a

rooftop bar and restaurant area and probably holding

one of the best views you’ll get in the city.” He said it

would face the north, with a good view for watching

the Christ Church Cathedral’s redevelopment.

Pie fans rejoice - Christchurch now has a

third stockist of Fairlie Bakehouse’s pies.

New World Redcliffs is now selling the

award-winning pies so fans won’t have to

drive over two hours to get their fix, not to

mention having to wait in the line often

stretching out onto the footpath. With

flavours such as pork belly with apple sauce

and crackling and bacon and salmon you’ll

want to have a taste.

GARDENING

ADVICE with

Not only can trees and shrubs provide numerous practical benefits

like shade and privacy, but they are also a wonderful way to soften

and transform unsightly spaces or views in the garden.

When planting shrubs and trees, always use plenty of Daltons

Compost and add in a Daltons Premium Planter Tabs to give them

the best start. With existing trees and shrubs, make sure to regularly

fertilise them to further enhance the health of the plant and its foliage.

ANSWER

QUESTION

Being a rebuild in Christchurch

we lifted, relocated and

replanted to our new garden,

all of our Buxus Sempervirens hedging on the same

site. Over the summer some of the Buxus hedging have

turned from a lush green to a rusty, orange colour, a few

have died off. Can you tell us why this is happening and

how to rectify this problem?

Today’s winning question came from

Cathie McGrath. Congratulations!

It is quite likely that a combination of factors has led to the problems you have experienced

with your transplanted Buxus Sempervirens.

Firstly, there is what is termed “transplanting shock”. While Buxus can usually be successfully transplanted, if the

young feeding roots dry out before the plant has become re-established, the foliage will often turn yellow, and then

bronze.

Secondly, if the plants become defi cient in nutrients, especially nitrogen, the foliage will slowly turn from dark

green to matte green, and then eventually to bronze.

Thirdly, while Buxus plants do not requires excessive watering, if they become dry over summer they will display

the symptoms you describe.

Do not be disheartened! Commence applications of a good quality, mostly nitrogen fertiliser such as Controlled

Daltons Goldcote Landscape and Garden in mid-October and continue applying through to mid-December.

Sheep pellets placed near the base of Buxus plants will also help promote strong growth and deep green coloured

foliage.

Other products to try: Garden Time Chicken and Sheep Pellets or Daltons Premium Tree & Shrub Fertiliser.

Keep up to date with landscaping

LANDSCAPING IS a wonderful

pastime enjoyed by many.

It provides a natural beauty

and needs no ornaments or other

attractive items to help achieve

its magnificence. What it does

need, however, is a little TLC from

you and great ideas to keep the

landscape design ever changing

and up to date.

Landscape design is an art that

not only gives you the freedom to

express yourself, but also makes

your home more beautiful and

inviting. There are many methods

of landscape design to explore. You

can trim your hedges or bushes in

a decorative manner. For instance,

you may want to cut every other

hedge a foot shorter than the next

to produce a rolling effect.

You could also put a large

decorative fountain in the middle

of your yard. This is a costly

option but, if you can afford it,

looks gorgeous.

If you are considering landscape

design, or have already dabbled in

it a bit, you know the importance

of working with an experienced

landscaper.

For information on finding a

professional in your area, check

Nadolo is

emerging on the scene in

Christchurch – this time at

secondary school level – after scoring

with his first touch of the ball in the

UC Championship.

Inosi Nasiganiyavi, the younger

brother of Nemani Nadolo, arrived

at Christ’s College from Queensland

in January on a rugby scholarship.

On Saturday, the winger scored

his first try for his new school

from 40m out after pouncing

on a loose ball in midfield

then beating two Shirley

Boys’ High School defenders

before crossing the line.

“When I got the ball all I

thought about was going for

the corner . . . it was exciting

at the time, I had a big smile

on my face,” said Nasiganiyavi.

His older brother played

a big part in his move to

Christchurch. Nasiganiyavi

was invited to the city by

Nadolo while he was

playing for the Crusaders.

Nasiganiyavi says

he fell in love with

Christchurch

during the

visit and had

always planned

to return.

memories of Kidwell’s famous

knockout hit on Willie Mason

I couldn’t help but also be reminded

of a man that appeared

to lose the lockerroom in what

was the most over-hyped, and in

his mark

“(My brother) plays a massive part

in my decisions . . . if I’m ever second

guessing myself, he’s someone

I can always go to for

advice,” said Nasiganiyavi.

“My goal was

to finish school

in Aussie and

then come to

Christchurch

and work my

way up through

club rugby, but I

was lucky enough

to get a scholarship

at Christ’s College.”

The brothers currently

share different last names. However,

it may not take long for that to

change.

Nadolo – formally Ratu Nasiganiyavi

– changed his name to Nemani

Nadolo as an adult, adopting his

mother’s maiden name in 2009

instead of the surname of his father

who had left the family home when

he was young. Nasiganiyavi also

plans to change his last name to Nadolo

when he turns 18 later this year.

While the two may soon share the

same surname, Nasiganiyavi says his

style of play isn’t an exact mould of

his brother.

“I wish I was as big as him. He was

way of play is to run around them

rather than through them. I’ve been

Kidwell’s legacy with the Kiwis as

a disaster, consisting of unlikely

losses to Fiji and Tonga, a draw

against Scotland and four straight

losses to Australia resulting in a

30 per cent win ratio.

However, for an unsuspecting

tourist venturing the streets of

Christchurch, it would be easy to

assume that Kidwell is some kind

of god-like figure and mastermind

For example, imagine a French

the 15-man game

after playing league

while growing up

Brisbane.

He says he has

already been blown

at training. Moving from a

place where the 13-man game is king

to a school that is coached by a former

All Blacks captain in the form

of Reuben Thorne has also been a

shock to the system.

“It sort of gives you goosebumps

at first . . . my mum and my brother

told me stories of watching him play,

but he’s just a normal person at the

end of the day,” said Nasiganiyavi.

Much like his older brother, Nasiganiyavi

also likes to play at centre

Christchurch trio

to take on world’s

top golfers

• By Gordon Findlater

THE NEW Zealand team for the junior

golf World Cup will have a distinct

Christchurch look to it when they tee

off in Japan next month.

Juliana Hung (Russley), Tom

Parker (Christchurch) and Hiroki

Miya (Russley) have been named

in the seven-strong team alongside

Aucklanders Carmen Lim and Rose

Zheng, Kevin Koong from North

Harbour and Shaun Campbell from

Bay of Plenty.

The selection comes on the back of

what has been a remarkably successful

12 months for the three Canterbury

golfers.

It will be Parker’s second time

competing in the tournament. Last year

he finished 24th overall and helped the

New Zealand boys team to finish sixth.

“It’s my favourite event I’ve ever

played in,” said Parker.

The course layout is awesome. It’s

perfectly manicured, narrow with

either tree trouble or out-of-bounds

either side so you’ve got to hit it

straight.”

After finishing his final year at

Christchurch Boys’ High School

in 2017, Parker has been able to

concentrate on his game before

beginning college at the University of

Oregon in the United States. With a

strong support unit around him, he’s

confident of a good result in Japan.

“I feel like going back there this time

I have extra confidence. . . . I’ve been

there before and will be doing a few

things differently this time around,”

said Parker.

He will be joined in the four strong

boys team by Miya, who is having a

year to remember after the biggest win

of his young golfing career at the Faldo

Series Asia grand final in Vietnam in

March.

“I’m really excited. I think we have a

really strong team and have an opportunity

to do really well,” said Miya.

Hung will look to continue a strong

run of results in New Zealand and

abroad when she represents the girls

team. The New Zealand stroke play

champion is currently representing

New Zealand at the Queen Sirikit Cup

– Asia-Pacific amateur ladies golf team

championship in Thailand.

The junior golf World Cup will feature

15 men’s and nine women’s teams.

The tournament runs from June 10-15

at the Chukyo Golf Club Ishino course.

Having three Christchurch golfers

named in the team is a rare accomplishment

and a strong sign of a talented

young crop of golfers emerging in the

region.

“We are very proud of the achievement

to have Juliana, Tom and Hiroki

selected to represent New Zealand at

the junior World Cup event, it’s quite a

remarkable achievement. These players

have worked hard to earn their selection

in this team and will gain valuable

international experience amongst some

of the best junior players in the world,”

manager Rachel Thow.

Cashmere Tech focus

on Chatham Cup run

in the driver’s seat to claim their

fifth Mainland Premier League

title in eight years, Cashmere

Technical now turn their

attention to New Zealand’s most

historic footballing trophy.

Round one of the Chatham

Cup starts this weekend. Cashmere

put themselves on the national

stage in 2013 by winning

the cup for the first time, before

successfully defending it in 2014.

In each campaign since,

Cashmere have been defeated

at either the quarter-final or

semi-final stages, twice by the

eventual competition winners.

On Saturday, they will face

Nomads. Cashmere took the

honours 4-3 when the teams met

in the MPL last month.

“We had trouble against them

last time and only got the result

late . . . we will be ready for this

one,” said Cashmere coach Dean

Hutchinson.

At the weekend, Cashmere

doubled their lead at the top

of the MPL standings with a

dominant 5-1 win over defending

champions Ferrymead Bays.

They scored five unanswered

goals in a 40min spell, courtesy

of Lyle Matthysen Andy Tuckey,

Sam Field, Max Chretien and

Gary Ogilvie.

“It was very pleasing. We’ve

been building after a busy period

and losing a few guys with injury

. . . it was good to see everything

come together,” said Hutchinson.

Cashmere now have 26 points,

six clear of Bays, with Coastal

Spirit on 19.

Moulai on track to world champs

• By Jacob Page

MIDDLE-DISTANCE runner

Nick Moulai has run himself

into a promising future.

The 18-year-old former St

Bede’s College student is on

the cusp of running for New

Zealand in the 1500m at the

junior world championships

in Finland, and will then take

up a four-year scholarship at

Mississippi State University in

the United States.

Moulai has made the

qualifying time for Finland but

so have Isaiah Priddey, Samule

Tanner and Theo Quax, son of

former middle-distance great,

Dick Quax.

With only two places up

for grabs, Moulai will have to

earn his spot with fast times

in a couple of prelude races in

Europe.

runners at the moment, which is

exciting, but I just have to focus

on my preparation and hope that

goes well.”

about managing my time, my

training on the roads, and my

rest and recovery,” Moulai said.

The former surf lifesaver and

sprinter came to middle-distance

running six years ago, and

has been coached by Graeme

Christey ever since.

Their partnership will end

when Moulai takes up his

scholarship in the US.

The talented teen recently went

for a training run with Kiwi

Olympic silver medallist Nick

Willis, who took time to share

some advice,

“Nick said every runner is

working hard and putting the

training in, but it’s more about

the little two per cent things

you do that can turn you from a

good runner to a great runner,”

Moulai said.

“Things like getting nine hours

of sleep, doing your stretches,

and prioritising recovery all

make a big difference.”

Moulai said he was eager

to test himself in the US at an

NCAA division one school.

The quality of runners over

there is incredible,” he said.

There are 10 guys running

between 3min 36sec and 3min

44sec so it’ll be great to be

around that culture.”

Johnson sidelined – Lino will be the Warriors main man

MASON LINO will again

become the main man for the

Warriors on Saturday.

Shaun Johnson has been sidelined

for the fourth time in what

has been an injury-interrupted

season so far. He will miss the clash

against the Roosters at Mt Smart

Stadium due to an ankle injury.

The star halfback was always

an unlikely starter – and will

probably be touch-and-go for the

following week’s trip to Parramatta.

However, Lino has already

proved himself a capable deputy

this season.

The 24-year-old Lino will

make his fourth appearance of

2018, after previously filling in at

No 7 against the Roosters, North

Queensland and Melbourne.

But while Johnson is out, there

is good news for the two other

high profile players also injured

last Saturday.

Issac Luke has been named at

hooker, in spite of dislocating his

shoulder in the 26-4 win over the

Tigers while Adam Blair is also

expected to start, in spite of an

ankle complaint.

“Adam is fine and will play,”

said Warriors head coach Stephen

Kearney.

“We gave Issac every chance to

play last week after injuring his

knee against Melbourne and he

came through. Once again, we’ll

give him every opportunity this

week.”

While Blair is a certainty, Luke

appears less likely. He has had a

long history of shoulder dislocations

in his career and there will

be a temptation to make sure

he is fully healed, given his long

term importance to the team.

There will also be confidence

in Karl Lawton’s ability to deliver,

after his stunning two try cameo

appearance against the Tigers.

THE WARATAHS are at the top

of a very slippery slide in Super

Rugby and the only thing that

can stop them lurching down

head first is belief and composure,

according to five-eighth

Bernard Foley.

Having fallen short against

the weakest New Zealand team,

the Blues, on Saturday night,

the Waratahs are heading into a

three-week block of Kiwi opposition.

First the defending champions

the Crusaders in Christchurch

on Saturday, then the Highlanders

at home and the Chiefs in

Hamilton.

It could spell disaster for NSW

given their failure to convert to

points the lion’s share of possession

and territory at Brookvale

Oval, the Sydney Morning Herald

reported.

But Foley believes his team can

avoid a massacre by believing in

themselves and each other.

“A lot of it’s composure, backing

the system and what we’ve

trained. Even if you feel unfulfilled

the first time, you go back

and do it the second time,” he

said.

“You don’t try to solve it on

your own. Teams are too good

now in Super Rugby to allow individuals

to go out there and win

matches. You’ve got to back the

guys around you, the 14 other

teammates on the field, and that’s

how we’ll get the win.”

It might be two years since the

Waratahs last beat a New Zealand

team but Foley and a number

of senior players remember

what regular victories feel like.

The Waratahs accounted for

the Crusaders, Hurricanes and

Blues on the way to the knockout

rounds in 2015 and they

notched a four-game streak

against Kiwi opposition in their

march to the 2014 title.

Fresh off a 55-10 demolition

of the Rebels, the Crusaders sit

atop the competition ladder this

confidence, skill and their trademark

quality up front.

Their pack’s littered with

All Blacks so they’re a sound

team. And off the back of that

forward pack, that really won the

competition last year,” Foley

said.

“For us it’s setting the platform,

really matching them. Our team’s

definitely shown that the forward

pack want to work, they want to

have that fight.”

Volvo paves way

for electric power

• By Ross Kiddie

IT’S NOT something I

normally do, take a vehicle

out for a 45min evaluation.

In the normal scheme of

things, evaluation cars

are made available for a

minimum of three days.

However, I made an

exception given the Volvo

XC60 T8 was an extension

of the two XC60 drives I

had had over a fortnight.

There’s only one thing

better than getting a

chance to evaluate a new

car, and that’s having two

or three experiences in

much the same model.

This evaluation focuses

on the entry-level, petrolfuelled

model, which I

drove after a week with

a high-spec diesel, that

evaluation was published

in these columns in

January.

The T8 experience was

something different again,

for it is a petrol/electric

plug-in hybrid and that

short drive, mostly in pure,

electric-only mode, was

certainly an indication of

how good Volvos will be

when the company focuses

on hybrid and electric

technology after 2019.

I’d be lying if I said I

preferred the hybrid over

the fossil fuel power, but

it will certainly appeal to

those who want to do their

bit for the environment,

it is a sport utility vehicle

that will do all that is asked

of it in the normal manner

befitting that concept.

All that aside, the T8’s

petrol engine, which

sits beside the electric

motors, is much the same

as that which powers the

T5. Sure, there’s a major

fundamental difference,

hybrid technology aside,

the T8 is supercharged and

turbocharged, the T5 is

sans supercharger.

Nevertheless, the latter

is still rated with a 187kW

and 350Nm power output

and it is a real gem in

terms of refinement. It is

hushed and smooth in its

delivery, the latter is no

surprise, transmission is

through an eight-speed

automatic and the free

flowing power delivery is

remarkable, drive through

the gearbox is seamless.

If you also take into

account the areas of

where power and torque

are delivered – 5500rpm

and 1500-4800rpm –

modern turbocharging

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

VOLVO XC60: High values for safety and comfort.

techniques account for

decisive throttle response.

All of that comes without

dramatic use of fuel. Volvo

rate the T5 with a 7.3-litre

per 100km/h (39mpg)

combined cycle average.

That sits well with the

8.8l/100km (32mpg) figure

during my time with the

evaluation car. That, along

with a 6l/100km (47mpg)

instantaneous figure at

100km/h.

• Price – Hyundai

Kona Elite, $36,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4165mm;

width, 1800mm;

height, 1565mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1999cc,

110kW, 180Nm,

six-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage –

7.2l/100km

On the subject of figures,

the T5 is also quite quick.

It will lunge to 100km/h

from a standstill in 6.8sec

and will make a highway

overtake in 4.5sec to make

120km/h from 80km/h.

As part of my routine

drive route I took the T5

inland to the Rakaia Gorge

incline. While the basespec

doesn’t get the 21in

tyres of its stablemates, I

was hugely impressed

with the quiet-riding

nature of the 19in

Michelin rubber on the

test car. Accuracy into

a corner is direct, while

feedback is well supplied

to the driver.

The T5 is also well

balanced, even without the

fabulous air suspension of

The Star

the D5 and T8, the secure

feeling you get through the

four-wheel-drive network

provides the series with

an involving handling

sensation.

It must be said, however,

the omissions on the T5

don’t mean it is much

less of a vehicle, Volvo

has long had a reputation

for building specification

into its models and the T5

doesn’t miss out on a lot.

It is still the vastly capable,

safe and well-optioned

SUV that sits well in the

luxury/prestige part of

the market at $84,900. For

interest’s sake the R-Design

D5 and T8 both list at

$94,900.

That being the case, I’d

be tempted by the base

petrol-powered model, it

is a stunner in terms of

sophistication and it looks

after those on board with

much luxury and comfort.

Also, as a driver, you are

very much part of the

vehicle such is the way it

involves you as part of the

driving experience.

The XC60 as a series is

the quintessential SUV,

but it is also a range that

delivers something quite

special in each individual

model. Each offers the

buyer a lot of vehicle for

the outlay.

In terms of what was my

favourite, I’d be lying if I

didn’t say I preferred the

diesel D5 R-Design, but

that’s not taking anything

away from the base model

car, nor the hybrid, all are

spectacular.

The XC60 as a series

is so good, in fact, I find

it just a little saddening

that in a few short years

production of those

fabulous Volvo internal

combustion engines won’t

be quite so prolific.

Home heating –

electricity, gas or wood?

How you heat your home depends on

a number of factors. Figuring out the

best way to heat your home continues

to be a matter for debate.

Several things are undisputed. A

warm, dry home is essential for comfort

and good health, good insulation

dramatically increases the efficiency of

any heating system and ventilation is

an important consideration.

Most homes are heated by electricity,

gas, or wood. In New Zealand, heating

accounts for approximately 30 percent

of a home’s annual energy consumption.

There are many things you can do to

reduce consumption and cost.

The World Health Organisation

recommends a temperature of 18 deg C

for indoor living areas, and slightly less

for bedrooms. It recommends slightly

higher temperatures for vulnerable

people – the elderly and small children.

Studies have shown that indoor

temperatures below 12 degrees can

disrupt sleep.

Among all these considerations,

how you heat your home is a matter

of personal choice, with many options

available.

Heat pumps are generally the most

common and cost-effective form of

home heating in New Zealand. Used

properly, they heat quickly and are

convenient. However, you need to have

the right sized unit for the area and

they don’t work when electricity is not

available. They tend to be room-specific

but ducted heat pumps are becoming

more popular and are cost-effective,

especially in new builds, but can also

be installed into established homes.

Modern wood burners may be the

closest you can get to an open-fire feel,

but are much more efficient. Wood is

generally a renewable fuel, and if you

have a cheap or free supply, a wood

burner may be the least expensive

heating option. They heat large areas

and are not dependent on electricity

but there is the chopping and stacking

to be done, flues need to be cleaned

regularly and older models can

contribute to air pollution and

may violate strict air quality

regulations – www.mfe.govt.

nz has detailed information

regarding this.

Pellet fires are typically more

efficient than wood burners but can

NEW LISTINGS

have a smaller output. They require

electricity but some have a battery

backup and they are thermostatically

controlled with timers. These must

comply with regulations which are

also detailed on the Ministry for the

Environment website.

Gas heating is common and

convenient. Central heating systems

can be zone controlled and provide

warm air circulation. Flued gas heaters

are best, as unflued and portable gas

heaters produce lots of moisture and

emit pollutants that can be unsafe.

Flued gas heating systems can be

installed in most homes. They are fast

heating and are relatively inexpensive

to run. However gas is not a renewable

resource and prices can vary widely.

The greatest source of energy is

actually free. Harnessing the sun can

dramatically reduce heating costs and

is the most environmentally friendly

way to heat your home. Passive heating

combines insulation with good design,

accomplished more effectively in new

builds but also able to be incorporated

into existing homes.

Getting the sun’s warmth into

your home is a function of the

design; keeping it in is a function of

the insulation. There is a wealth of

information online as passive heating

becomes normative in the design and

building industry.

Websites such as energywise.govt.

ALCOHOL LICENCE

NOTIFICATION CHANGES

We’re changing the way alcohol licence applications

are publicly notified.

Instead of advertising these in the public notice section

of local newspapers, we will publish information on a

dedicated webpage, located on ccc.govt.nz/alcohol.

The webpage will be live from 16 April 2018 for all

alcohol licence public notices. Please note there will be

a month’s transition period for public notices already

arranged by applicants for newspaper publication.

By advertising on the same webpage each time,

people will know where to go to look for licence

application notice and details about public objection

timelines. Public notifications will still be for 15

working days, but you will be able to view on the

webpage recent notices beyond that time.

This is consistent with the requirements of the Sale

and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012.

You can still view application documents in person at

Council offices.

To find out more about how alcohol licence applications

are publicly notified, give us a call on 941 8999 or

0800 800 169.

CAREERS EXPO 2018

CHRISTCHURCH 10-12 MAY - Horncastle Arena

Choosing the right

career path is not easy!

Youth need guidance on transition

from school to jobs

Thousands of young people attending the

Christchurch Careers Expo over the next few

days will be looking to their future transition

from school into the world of work.

This is where the Careers Expo presents

an unparalleled opportunity to connect

directly with those most able to provide

guidance and information needed to make

informed choices for the journey ahead.

There are skills shortages aplenty in New Zealand.

The economy is tracking well, yet statistics show

that a lot of young people are still not finding

work, with unemployed aged between 15 and 24

at unacceptably high levels.

Director of the Careers Expo Mark Gillard, does

not believe that these people aren’t interested

in work; he believes the problem stems from the

crucial transition between school and the workforce.

Pointing to international research carried

out by the UK’s Employers and Schools Taskforce

Mr Gillard explains that there needs to be

an increase in interaction between businesses

and young people, when young adults are still at

school.

Their research entitled “It’s who you meet”

found that students from all demographics benefitted

from early interaction and engagement with

business, being considerably less likely to end up

without a job, outside of training or education” .

Each year around 160,000 Kiwi secondary school

students (years 10-13) make decisions about their

careers and life after school, such as where and

what to study and what they want to achieve in

life. These are huge decisions for young people,

and the more information we can provide to help

make the best choices at this time the better.

Being able to talk to someone ‘on the job’ or from

an industry body can help clarify many of the questions

that sit around the transition into the work

force - What is it really like to work in a particular

sector? What are the costs of training? How long

will it take and will there be a job for me at the end

of my training?

Connecting with tertiary training organisations,

industry groups and future employers, is so important

for young people to do. It is never too early

to start thinking about their future and take advantage

of the opportunity to connect directly with

future employers.

The Careers Expo and The World of Work provide

the ideal opportunity for young people and their

families to scope out the wide range of opportunities

that exist, and to talk about future plans.

JET-Talks provide inspiration

Join us on the hour every hour for a series of JET-TALKS

Including: Inspiring videos, ZM Talent, NZME Media career options

Plus a host of other seminar speakers to infom and inspire!
