Surfers pay tribute to Rangi in paddle out

REMEMBERED: Well-known surfer Rangimaria King was honoured with a paddle out on Saturday.

A PADDLE out to honour a

well -known surfer who passed

away after a short battle with

cancer was held on Saturday.

Families, friends and fellow

surfers gathered at the north

ramp near the New Brighton

Pier to remember Rangimaria

(Rangi) Adrian Te Otimi King,

42, who died from liver cancer

on May 4.

surfer” and a “New Brighton

legend”, King was a professional

surfer whose career took off in

the late 1980s. He was a member

of the New Zealand scholastics

team and his career highlights

included beating former professional

surfer Martin Potter.

King was competing at the

Konica all stars skin contest

at Sandon Point, Wollongong,

when he beat Potter in the early

1990s.

Liquor

decision

could go

to appeal

• By Bridget Rutherford

LIQUORLAND IS considering

whether to appeal a decision that

rejected its application to open

a store in Phillipstown after the

community rallied to stop it

going ahead.

The district licensing committee

declined the Liquorland

application to operate a bottle

store on the corner of Ferry and

Aldwins Rds.

Liquorland has until May 30 to

appeal it.

Chief executive Brendon Lawry

said Liquorland was “disappointed”

with the committee’s

decision and was considering its

options regarding an appeal.

The decision came after objections

by health officials, residents,

police and nearby Linwood College.

The application came from Steve

Crotty and Michael Scott, who

also own Liquorland Riccarton.

They said the store would also

service Ferrymead to Sumner.

In its decision, the committee

acknowledged the pair had more

than 20 years of experience and

their systems and staff training

were of a high standard.

But it said the seller could not

control how the alcohol was

consumed.

RANGI KING got the traditional surfer

send-off on Saturday.

Fellow surfers gathered just off the north

ramp at Brighton to farewell the well-liked

42-year-old who succumbed to liver cancer

recently.

Rangi was one of the better surfers to come to of the region. A

professional whose career took off in the late 80s.

He finished a close second to Australian legend Mark Occhilupo

at the Konica All Stars skin contest at Wollongong, near Sydney.

Rangi started surfing at 11 and was a natural.

EXIT Surf Shop owner Tristan Bennett said no one had heard

of him before he went and competed in a Canterbury Scholastic

Surfing competition when he was 13 and “blew everyone away.”

Rangi got the farewell he deserved at the weekend.

Smith St chosen for pool site

A LOCATION has been chosen

for the Linwood-Woolston pool.

The Linwood Ave and Smith

St corner site was finalised on

Wednesday by the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board.

The board considered 487 submissions

from the public, with

the clear majority favouring the

Smith St site.

“The response to this process

has shown us that the community

is really

on the same

page as the city

council when

it comes to this

project,” said

chairwoman

Sally Buck.

Sally Buck

“The council

went through

a thorough site selection process,

and identified 141 Smith St,

which is on a section next to

Linwood Park that faces onto

Linwood Ave, as the best location

for a pool.”

She said as the majority

favoured the site, it made the

board’s final decision “very

easy.”

“When we went out with the

options, people were also able to

suggest other sites they thought

might be suitable, and 89 per

cent of submitters came back in

favour of our preferred site.”

Submitters said the accessibility

of the location for local

schools and the public, and the

opportunity to create a social

space in the area, were the main

reasons for the choice.

“We’ve received plenty of

food for thought through the

submissions, including how

we can make sure we keep the

tennis courts at Linwood Park,

and overall the message was our

community wants this facility

right here and wants us to get

started straight away,” Ms Buck

said.

The next step is for the city

council to produce a concept

design that will show how the facility

looks and what it features.

This design will be developed

with feedback and input from

the wider community and key

stakeholders, including Linwood

Rugby League and South

Brighton Tennis Club.

The design process will begin

later this year.

What is the process for naming roads?

Heathcote

Ward city

councillor Sara

Templeton

explains

the process

behind road

naming in the city

THERE’S BEEN some

discussion within these pages

recently about the naming of a

new street in Heathcote Valley –

Kairuri Lane.

It’s clear from comments

that the city council’s processes

around road naming are opaque,

so I thought I’d have a go at

explaining them, using this one

as an example.

Under the city council’s roads

and right-of-way naming policy,

the names considered for new

roads must be requested by the

developer, who puts forward

three for consideration. The

community board is then able to

either approve a name or not.

In this instance the developer

had requested that Reynard Lane

be approved by the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board, but the board

had concerns that it wasn’t in

keeping with other historic street

MEANING: The choice of the name ‘Kairuri Lane’ for a new subdivision on Bridle Path Rd has

attracted controversy.

names in the area, so asked the

developer to present some other

options.

He did and came back at the

following meeting with Reynard

Lane as his preferred option,

then Abney Lane (named for

an old surveying tool) and also

Kairuri Lane (the Maori word for

surveyor).

He had consulted with Mahaanui

Kurataiao Ltd, a resource

and environmental advisory

group, which agreed that the

name ‘Kairuri’ was culturally

appropriate.

The word kai in this case is

used as a prefix to verbs and

stipulates the person of the

action. For example mahi (work)

is kaimahi/worker and kōrero

(speak) is kaikōrero/speaker.

Rūri is a translated English

word for ruler, so Kairūri means

surveyor. The community board

has previously had concerns

about the road naming policy

and last year asked the city

council to review the policy to

enable better outcomes.

We were concerned that

there is currently little resident

involvement and also that it was

difficult to encourage developers

to present Te Reo names as

options.

The city has very few

Maori street names, even

with the long historic connection

to the area and so this was

one of the issues that we took

into consideration when we

approved the developers’ third

option.

I am hopeful that the review of

the policy will mean both greater

community involvement in road

naming processes, especially

in existing communities, and a

greater recognition of tangata

whenua. Ngā mihi

Hoon Hay school finalist in excellence awards

HOON HAY School has been

the winners in July,” she said.

The school wanted to ensure

that Māori achieve success and

enjoy the same level of academic

success in mathematics as other

students in their school.

To achieve this, the school

introduced and expanded their

use of a unique mathematical

problem solving approach across

the school to ensure that each

student has the opportunity to

engage in worthwhile mathematical

tasks.

To support this, the leadership

team prioritised mathematics as

the sole professional focus.

They successfully raised student

engagement and outcomes

in mathematics across the school

as a result.

Members of the award’s judging

panel are visiting the finalists

during May and June to see their

work and speak with all involved.

Winners from each category

will receive $20,000 and a

professional development

opportunity.

The Prime Minister’s supreme

award will then be selected

from the category winners. It is

presented to the early learning

service, school or kura that has

had the greatest influence on

education outcomes.

The winner of this will receive

an additional $30,000 and an

opportunity to represent New

Zealand in an international education

conference.

The awards ceremony will be

held in Wellington in July.

Former pro surfer honoured during paddle out

•From page 1

King narrowly came second to

Australian surfer Mark Occhilupo

in the Konica contest.

He began surfing at age 11 after

volunteers, including his father

Wally, helped start a surfing

programme as part of St Ambrose

Anglican Church’s drop-in

centre.

Faith Family Fellowship

Aranui soon found out the group

was interested in surfing and donated

their old surfboards from

the 1940s.

It wasn’t long before King

“caught the bug”. He took just

three weeks to pick up surfing

while the rest of the group took

about 18 months.

His sister Nga Anderson said

he would borrow other people’s

surfboards and they would laugh

at him until they saw him surf.

•From page 1

“We find that on the evidence

placed before us that the locality

is very vulnerable, contains a

high number of housing units for

those affected by mental illness

and addiction issues, including

alcohol addiction.”

The community rallied to stop

the proposal because it

was 50m from Thirsty Liquor,

and close to several others, with

121 submitting to object the

proposal.

The decision is the latest in a

string of successful community

campaigns to stop liquor stores

opening in their areas, including

Harewood.

Edmonds Factory Garden

spokesman and nearby resident

John Hoskin said they were

“highly delighted” and it was

a “wonderful community

effort.”

“It just goes to show if you

don’t try you’ll never get anywhere.”

He said people drunk in the

historic gardens during the day

and night leaving rubbish and

“That was when they had different

respect for him,” she said.

EXIT Surf Shop owner Tristan

Bennett said no one had heard

of him before he competed in a

Canterbury scholastic surfing

competition when he was 13 and

“blew everyone away”.

“I have got people who would

come into the surf shop and say ‘I

have just been down at Brighton;

there is a kid out there destroying

intimidating people and families.

Medical Officer of Health

Cheryl Brunton said she was

pleased with the decision and it

was a win for the community.

“While the effect of this decision

is primarily local, it will help

contribute to reducing alcohol

related harm and perhaps also

encourage other communities to

voice their concerns about new

alcohol outlets.”

Photographer Warren Hawke,

who travelled with King for

photoshoots over a period of two

to three years, said he had an

uncanny natural surfing ability.

He said at the beginning of his

career, King started to win contests

on surfboards which were

not even up to high performance

level at the time.

He was quickly picked up as a

professional and sponsored by

the Exit Surf Shop, surf clothing

and board company O’Neill,

Linwood Ward city councillor

Yani Johanson welcomed the

decision.

“It’s good news for the

community, they’ve worked

really hard.”

Mr Lawry said Liquorland

abided by its obligations under

the Sale and Supply of Alcohol

Act, and ran information

programmes about responsible

consumption.

“Our aim is to offer consumers

choice for occasions with friends

and family and for celebrations

of all types, in a safe and sensible

way.”

In his evidence during the

hearing, Phillipstown Neighbourhood

Policing Team officer

in charge Sergeant Michael

Kingston said further availability

would exacerbate the existing

alcohol abuse and related harm

in the area.

Meanwhile, Linwood College

King’s pro career lasted

more than 10 years into his early

20s.

After he stopped surfing

professionally, he continued to

teach surfing in New Brighton.

Close friend Sam Johnston,

who started out surfing with

King, said he was unique in

and out of the water, a talented

guitarist and good at any sport he

played.

Another friend Haydo Brain

said King was one of the most

influential surfers for him

Crime at post-quake drinking spots

A new report has

analysed the city’s

post-quake drinking

spots and whether

crime followed.

Bridget Rutherford

looks at the findings

THEY WERE the places where

people went to drink when the

popular central city nightlife

spots closed following the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Some were makeshift nightclubs

in the suburbs, some were

restaurants that turned into bars

after dinner service finished,

while others were places many

never would have frequented

before the quakes.

But at the time there was little

to choose from.

Now, a new report, Postearthquake

analysis of crime and

alcohol outlets in Christchurch,

commissioned by the Health

Promotion Agency, has analysed

where people tended to drink

following the quake, where the

liquor outlets were, and if there

was an increase in crime as a

result.

The report, by Greg Breetzke,

Benjamin Elley and Jarrod

Gilbert, looked at the period

between 2009-2014, and six case

studies in particular.

It found the areas where more

people tended to go to drink following

the quake mostly resulted

in a temporary spike in crime

because there were more people

in the area.

However, most had returned

to normal as the central city

revitalised.

The case studies included the

central city, Merivale, Riccarton,

Church Corner, Hornby and

Papanui.

The central city saw little offending

because popular spots

such as The Strip, Poplar Lane

and Sol Square had closed.

While some bars were available

in the central city, such as on St

Asaph St, Victoria St and Lincoln

BINGE: The report found the suburbs had an increase in patronage, with many existing bars and

restaurants transforming into nightclubs.

Rd, the report found they were

spread apart and little crime was

recorded.

The suburbs were where patronage

increased significantly,

the report said.

Merivale was one of those areas,

with bars such as Aikmans,

JDV and Bardello clustered

around Merivale Mall becoming

more popular.

Some bars in the area said they

had seen a “significant” increase

in patronage, and an increased

range of patrons including a mix

of business people, tradesmen

and younger patrons with disposable

income.

The worst year for crime was

in 2012, but it had decreased significantly

since then. Dishonesty

crime, such as burglary, vehicle

conversion or theft, and property

damage was the most common.

The crime rate in Merivale was

relatively low compared to the

other case studies.

However, it received a lot of

public interest in 2013, when

former Black Caps player Jesse

Ryder was assaulted outside Aikmans

and hospitalised.

The report found there was an

increase in offending between

midnight and 1am in 2011, which

police said could have been a

result of the shortlived nightclub.

Since then crime had dropped.

Riccarton was another area

that became more popular with

bars such as the Running Bull,

Fox & Ferrett and The Craic becoming

popular. Police began to

focus on the area as a result.

The report said a lot of bars

converted into “nightclub style”

bars to keep up with the patronage

levels.

In 2011/12, crime in the area

around Westfield Riccarton, increased

by 26 per cent, but it had

since dropped back down.

Night-time offending increased

substantially in 2012, and to a

lesser extent in 2013, between

10pm-midnight, the report

found. It dropped back down in

2014.

The report said a lot of offending

was down to deliberate

enforcement projects by police on

alcohol ban breaches in the area.

While Church Corner had seen

a large increase in the number of

liquor licences, most were restaurants,

not bars.

There was no increase in corresponding

offending.

The majority of liquor licences

in Hornby were bars, sports clubs

and liquor stores, and there was a

lower density of outlets compared

to the other areas.

The average number of offences

rose by 11 per cent in 2011 and

2013, which had since remained

steady.

The report comes after the city

council was forced to scrap its

Local Alcohol Policy in November.

It has since agreed to develop

a new one, which would restrict

where and when alcohol can be

sold.

Community Action on Youth

And Drugs senior project worker

Paul McMahon said alcohol was

the most harmful drug because it

was so easy to access.

CAYAD wants the city council

to introduce a targeted rate on

off-licence premises, including

supermarkets.

Mr McMahon said pre-loading

was more common than drinking

at bars and if alcohol was

more expensive, it would act as a

deterrence.

“Harmful drinking has

increased since 2011 across the

board. The amount we’re drinking

keeps going up.”

He said it was more common

for women aged 24-25.

Canterbury Metro area prevention

manager acting Inspector

Paul Reeves said police did a lot

of work in the alcohol space.

“As well as collaborating with

key partners, such as the District

Health Board and the city council,

there are specialist police staff

who prevent harm through the

monitoring of licences and by

creating a safe drinking environment.”

The research found existing

licences adapted to suit larger

numbers.

It said existing “tavern-style”

premises had transformed to “de

facto nightclubs”, while some

restaurants became “quasi bars”

switching to alcohol service after

dinner.

The places that saw large

increases in patronage were clustered

around malls and other food

outlets, and easily accessible.

The report said as the central

city revitalised, with places such

as The Terrace opening, it was

important to look at how to

“minimise disruption.”

From one Coastal to another

• By Jacob Page

COASTAL SPIRIT midfielder

Lauren Dabner may be

chasing her football dream

halfway round the world,

but her heart belongs in

Christchurch.

The former Riccarton High

School student is enjoying

her off-season by playing for

the Coastal premier women’s

team, safe in the knowledge

she still has more to prove in

the United States.

The 22-year-old is set to

play for Coastal Carolina

University from July after

leaving Texas Tech.

The exercise science

major said her first year of

a scholarship in Texas was

tough on many levels but the

struggles were worth it.

“I certainly had thoughts

about not continuing but I’m

so glad that I got through that

first year because it’s been so

worth it,” she said.

“It’s a combination of a lot

of things – you’re a long way

from home, in unfamiliar

surroundings playing in a new

league.”

The former under-17 New

Zealand representative has

also been part of a World Cup

bid.

Living abroad and playing

women’s football in a global

stronghold has had its

challenges.

“The game is more physical

(in the US); the standard is

very high,” she said.

Coastal Carolina University

is in NCAA division one and

Dabner is motivated to put her

stamp on things.

“They’re a young team who

have finished runner-up in

their conference the past two

seasons so to get the that top

MIDFIELD ACE: Lauren

Dabner hopes to win her

conference and make the

national NCAA women’s

football tournament in

the United States with her

new college team this

year.

SPORTS

finish would be great.”

Dabner said she was always

excited to come home and play

for Coastal Spirit.

“I’ve been with them for

seven seasons and they’ve

been very supportive with

me chasing this dream and

allowing me to come home

and play when I’m available.”

Dabner has put her New

Zealand international career

on hold until her studies and

scholarship are complete.

“If you want to be part of

that set up you have to be in

Auckland and right now I’m

committed to my studies and

helping my team reach their

goals.

“I’m still young enough that

I can come back, too, when

things change.”

Right now, Dabner wants

to help her two Coastal teams

earn victories.

100 games for Sydenham stalwart

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

IT’S SAFE to say Sydenham

flanker Reuben Harvey was more

eager to remember his 100th

game for the club on Saturday

than he was his 50th.

The evergreen flanker reached

the century mark after a tenure

spanning about 12 years.

He celebrated the milestone

with a 31-3 win over Burnside.

Milestone games have not been

kind to the 35-year-old who, in

his 50th cap and blazer game,

was benched and then suffered a

nasty eye socket injury.

“I’d missed Tuesday training

that week because of work so

the coach benched me to set an

example, even though it was the

last game of the season,” he said.

“I got on and ended up

smashing my eye socket late in

the game, so I missed the after

match and had to have a rather

awkward blazer ceremony the

following week.”

In spite of returning to

Blenheim where he grew up for

a short period, as well as stints

playing rugby in the United

Kingdom, Harvey said he has

never wanted to play for another

club in Christchurch other than

Sydenham.

“I was always drawn to the

great club atmosphere and I liked

the nod to history that they had

with the blazers and that sort of

thing.”

Harvey received a gold pin to

attach to his club blazer in commemoration

of his 100th game.

He said while his wife “would

probably like me to retire today,”

he believes he still has plenty to

offer.

“I want to keep going until the

wheels fall off,” he said.

“I’d hate to look back when I’m

60 and think that I could have

gone for another season.”

One motivation for Harvey

has been to give Sydenham an

elusive premier title.

“We thought we were close last

year, and in the sheds I think we

realised we’d let ourselves down

by not winning it all,” he said.

“We have a team this year

which has the potential to do it.”

flanker Reuben Harvey

played his 100th game for the

club on Saturday.

Photo finish for racing’s ‘lucky charm’

• By Jacob Page

AFTER 60 years of covering

horse racing in Canterbury,

photographer Colin Berry has

retired – sort of.

The 81-year-old, who lives in

Hornby, has been a regular sight

at Canterbury race meetings,

especially Riccarton Park gallops

and Addington trots, since the

late 1950s.

He has been photographing

winning horses, delighted

trainers, drivers and jockeys, and

ecstatic race owners for most of

his adult life – and says he will

miss it.

“A few years ago I had a double

hip replacement and I feel like

I’ve been slowing down since,”

he said.

“It’s always been great to photograph

happy people.

“A lot of owners or trainers

would come up to me early in the

night and say to me ‘I’m looking

forward to seeing you after

my race’ as if I was their lucky

charm.”

Born and bred in Christchurch,

Mr Berry began his career

during a three-month period of

compulsory military training

near the Ohakea Air Force Base

in Palmerston North.

He became a photographer’s

assistant at Addington Raceway

in 1956 doing photo finishes, and

the rest as they say is history.

​As well as racing shots, he also

did horse breeding photography.

I won’t miss the cold of the

winter night meetings but I’ve

just loved the camaraderie that

you have from working in the

industry,” Mr Berry said.

“There was a lot of mixed emotions

on the night but my son

Ajay has taken over for me and

he’s just fantastic.

“I’ll just be the messenger boy

now, delving the odd photo and

doing odd jobs in the office.”

Mr Berry said he remembers

covering the Addington Raceway

grandstand fire in 1961 as one

of New Zealand’s best standard

bred horses, Cardigan Bay, led a

race from start to finish,

He said Christian Cullen remained

one of his favourite horses,

not only for his dominance

on the track, but also because of

his physical make up.

“He’d be one of the best I’ve

seen, he was just so well put

together physically and a joy to

photograph,” Mr Berry said. “It’s

very hard to compare horses

from different eras, though.”

Mr Berry said technology advancement

has made the biggest

difference in race photography

over time.

“Back in the day, to try to get

a photo of a horse with all four

of its feet off the ground while

warming up was a real skill,” he

said.

“I’d listen from the beat and

the pace of the hooves . . . now

you can snaps 14 photos off in

1sec.

“That happiness of nailing the

perfect shot when you only had

one shot at it back in the day is

replaced by frustration if you

don’t get it these days with the

quality cameras.”

This could be the deal of the year for

builders/developers.

The owners of these 2 very spacious

apartments have cash settled with their

insurer and are selling the 2 properties

combined on an ‘as is, where is’ basis.

On offer is two 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom

apartments that both feature extremely

spacious open plan living, and modern

kitchen/dining area. The views from these

properties are worth the visit alone with the

top floor apartment having uninterrupted

panoramic views. Both offer the space of

a traditional family home combined with

the easy-care benefits of apartment living,

including an inbuilt lift!

Set on the lower slopes of Cashmere, you

are within walking distance to a great choice

of cafes as well as being close to Cashmere

Primary School and in the Cashmere High

School.

For those looking for a home plus income

why not live in one apartment and rent out

the other? This also makes a great buying

option for extended families.

Make no mistake the decision to sell has

been made and there is no looking back

so ensure you book your viewing ASAP,

options like this rarely come to the market

and there can only be one new owner.

Please note that 2A & 2B properties are to

be sold together.

Auction date Thursday 31 May 12:00pm

(98 Moorhouse Ave, Grenadier House) No
