Dalziel

• By Bridget Rutherford

MAYOR Lianne Dalziel has

been hit by a “fake sextortion”

online scam, which is aimed at

embarrassing victims into paying

up.

Ms Dalziel received a ransom

email at the weekend, saying

malware had been installed on an

adult website.

Unless $1000 was paid in

Bitcoin, she was told a video of

her supposedly using the X-rated

website would be sent to her

friends.

The Fake-tortian scam is wellknown,

with Netsafe receiving

more than 300 reports of it in the

past week.

Ms Dalziel said she knew it was

a scam. She hadn’t visited any

adult sites and had coincidentally

received a tweet from a friend

about it before the bogus email

landed.

She talks about the scam in her

weekly column in The Star today

(page 13).

“I knew it was a scam from the

start. But it created the impression

that they could take control

of the person’s computer and use

the webcam,” Ms Dalziel said.

“But it could be frightening to

some people.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Survivor finalist: ‘It was so hard’

Winner

will take

$250,000

• By Sophie Cornish

A LIBRARIAN from Casebrook

and a receptionist from

Templeton have out-played 15

other castaways to make the

grand final of TVNZ’s Survivor

New Zealand.

On Sunday night, Lisa Stanger,

39, and Tess Fahey, 24, will find

out who is the sole survivor in

the third season of the “gruelling”

reality TV show set in

Thailand.

The live final, where the winner

will be announced, will take

place in Auckland and the sole

survivor will walk away with

$250,000.

Another contestant from

Auckland, Dave Lipanovic,

makes up the final three.

Twenty years of being a librarian

didn’t hamper Ms Stanger’s

chances of being a successful

contestant.

The self-proclaimed Survivoraddict

always dreamed of being

on the show and admits she was

never “much of an outdoors

person.”

Merrin School, where Ms

Stanger works, was accommodating

and supportive when she

asked for the time off.

They really wanted me to

fulfil this long-held dream of

mine,” she said.

Miss Fahey quit her job as a

receptionist in the United Kingdom

and returned to her New

Zealand home shortly before her

departure for Thailand.

She admits she spent the last

month before the show “drinking

and partying with friends” and

even ate a triple Big Mac combo

at the airport before she left.

“It’s probably not the advice

I’d offer anyone else but it

worked for me,” she joked.

FINAL BATTLE: Lisa Stanger has made it to the final of gruelling reality TV show Survivor

New Zealand. (Below) Ms Stanger and Tess Fahey (right) as they appeared in the series.

Miss Fahey’s competitive drive

and desire for adventure led her

to the show, which she said she

would do all over again.

Ms Stanger said she wouldn’t

do it again and that watching

herself on the show “was a little

bit distressing.”

“It was so hard. I was a huge fan

of Survivor but you could never

understand how hard it is until

you do it . . . I was staggering

more than I was walking. I was so

weak and so hungry,” she said.

Both competitors said they

would share the prize money

with family and charities to help

children.

Study shows

TEN THOUSAND education

staff became first responders for

Christchurch’s 150,000 school

students and pupils during the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Not a single child died on

school property.

Canterbury University health

and human development senior

lecturer Veronica O’Toole interviewed

20 teachers,

researching

their ability to

regulate emotions

in a disaster,

leading to

some insights.

Teachers called

on all their skills

Veronica

O’Toole

to attend to children’s

safety, Dr

O’Toole said.

“For all the teachers I interviewed,

their priority was

making sure they did not show

distress for the children and

students in their care. They

remained on duty until the last

caregivers.”

Christchurch teachers’ emotion

regulation, goals and

strategies for their immediate

fear in the first moments of the

earthquake have been compared

internationally to first responders.

“Strategies teachers normally

use to present a calm and professional

image underpinned the

regulation of these teachers’ fears

at the time of the earthquake,”

Dr O’Toole said.

While some emotion regulation

strategies may be effective

in the moment, they can be less

suitable longer term.

Experiencing intense fear at

the time of a trauma can have

negative emotional impacts in

both professional and untrained

first responders later on, Dr

O’Toole said.

Ongoing stress factors related

to increased job demands, even

in the normal course of events,

Suggestions for teachers:

•During daily reflections,

try taking a different

perspective of different

events or try changing

thoughts from a negative

to a positive interpretation.

Then review the

emotional response to

the revised thoughts. This

cognitive reappraisal can

be practised and learned

as part of improving

our emotional lives, and

reducing emotional

exhaustion.

•In disaster planning,

“Although this may be

moderated by teachers’ positive

emotions and love of their work,

when occurring simultaneously

Government and

management can be of

disaster to increase job

demands and contribute

to teachers’ emotional

exhaustion and burnout,

the better the support

that can be given to

Recommendations:

•Consideration of a

follow-up programme

for first responder

teachers.

•Incorporating learning

more about emotions

and research-informed

emotions, health and

well-being post-disaster.

to emotional exhaustion and

The findings of this research

are an important reminder of

the significant role played by

teachers during the earthquake

said.

$2.2b and SCIRT is gone

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE FINAL bill for fixing and

replacing more than 640km of

earthquake-damaged pipes, 108

pump stations, 1300 sq km of

roads was $2.2 billion.

The Stronger Christchurch

Infrastructure Rebuild Team

officially wound up this month

after its 12-month defects liability

period ended.

SCIRT senior project manager

Ross Herrett said while

construction of all projects was

completed in June, 2017, 754

further items needed repairing

since then.

He said the total cost of the

defects liability programme was

$5,513,000 – two per cent of the

total SCIRT programme.

The massive seven-year programme

cost $2,230,408,000 in

total, Mr Herrett said.

Of that, 54 per cent came from

the Crown, and 46 per cent from

the city council, he said.

“SCIRT’s $2.23 billion sevenyear

programme involved more

than 700 individual projects

across the city repairing and

bridges and retaining walls,” Mr

Herrett said.

SCIRT, which was an alliance

between the city council and

the Government, was formed

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

It was tasked with repairing

and replacing Christchurch’s

three waters, roading and bridge

networks, as well as some retaining

walls and stopbanks.

Mr Herrett said SCIRT repaired

and replaced 500km of

pipes and 78 pump stations in

the wastewater network.

He said four stormwater

pump stations and 50km of

stormwater pipes were repaired

and replaced, along with 90km

of pipes and 26 pump stations in

the fresh water system.

He said 1300 sq km of roads

were replaced or repaired, as

were 144 bridges and culverts

and 180 retaining walls.

Mr Herrett said the SCIRT

programme officially finishing

was a significant milestone for

Christchurch.

The completion of the SCIRT

repair programme has enabled

the council’s earthquake damaged

Tūranga to open in

time for school holidays

• By Julia Evans

THE NEW $92 million central

city library is set to open in time

for the term 3 school holidays.

The Star has learned the city

council will hold an opening

event in the last week of September,

likely to be on

Friday, September 28.

School holidays start

on October 1.

But the city council is

remaining tight-lipped

over the opening of the

library, which is called

Tūranga.

Said city council head

of libraries and information

Carolyn Robertson: “We are

eager to see Tūranga open for the

city as soon as possible, and we

look forward to releasing a specific

time frame for the handover

and public opening as soon as it

is confirmed with our building

partners.

More than a million books,

magazines, CDs, DVDs, archives

and other resources will be

transferred to the new library. It

will be one of the largest moving

projects the city council has ever

done.

Ms Robertson said Tūranga’s

IT and audio-visual fit out was

projected to cost $4.17 million.

It will have technologies such

as 3D printers, a laser cutter, sewing

machines, audio and video

recording facilities, and virtual

reality devices.

That does not include

the $1.24 million interactive

touch-wall, the largest

in the country.

New stock, which is

shared around all the

city’s libraries, currently

being sent to Central

Carolyn Manchester and Central

Robertson Peterborough, would be

diverted to Tūranga once

it opens.

Both Peterborough and Manchester

Libraries are currently

leased by the city council, which

would not be renewed when

Tūranga opened. All the resources

and staff from both will

also be transferred.

The five-storey Tūranga would

have a hands-on technology and

innovation zone, a cafeteria,

200-seat community arena, activity

rooms, an exhibition space,

meeting rooms, two outdoor

terraces and a playground.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Smaller buses not considered in original design

• By Julia Evans

A DESIGN issue has been

discovered in the $53 million bus

interchange, meaning smaller

buses cannot use it.

Environment Canterbury

senior public transport senior

manager Stewart Gibbon said

when the bus interchange on

Colombo, Lichfield and Tuam Sts

was designed in 2013, use of the

smaller buses was

not anticipated.

“At the time the

bus interchange

was designed

and built, smaller

public transport

Gerry

Brownlee

Jordan

vehicles were not

operating within

the fleet, therefore

these were not

contemplated

within the design,”

Mr Gibbon

said.

However, a

newly-established

route from

Westmorland to

the central city

would see the

smaller buses use

the interchange during non-peak

hours.

The small Mercedes-Benz

Interchange doesn’t allow for the use of smaller buses. ​

buses were the first of their kind

in the country when they were

introduced in 2016.

Mr Gibbon said the issue with

smaller buses related to the bus

door not aligning with the entry

gates, the gate door activation

and bus detection, as well as passenger

safety.

It is not the first time the interchange

has encountered design

issues. After it opened, there

were 13 bus crashes in less than

a month, which involved bus-tobus

collisions and hitting fences.

ECan blamed driver error,

while the drivers said there were

blind spots in the interchange.

Issues with the bus interchange

•Door alignment: The bus

door does not align with

the main bay entry door.

•Door activation: The

front bay door is the

primary door that must

be activated to enable

boarding and alighting

activities. The rear door

cannot currently be autoactivated

Minister Gerry Brownlee

said it was a “great moment” for

the city.

Yesterday he said: “When the

. . . they expected full buses, the

smaller ones shouldn’t even need

to be used,” Mr Brownlee said.

“If the city does grow as it

should, the next thing will be

we need bigger buses. You can’t

too often ratepayers in Canterbury

a purpose-built bus facility isn’t

built for purpose.”

Mr Gibbon said the city

council, Ōtākaro and ECan were

investigating potential solutions,

but he could not give a timeframe

or budget.

“Solution implementation

timeframes will be dependent on

any potential option chosen. The

revised Westmorland service is

not due to commence until October

this year,” Mr Gibbon said.

He said if a solution was not

found before then, full buses

would service the route.

Mr Williams said there needed

to be transparency as to how

much a solution would cost.

Vandals hit

Wigram

• By Anan Zaki

WIGRAM RESIDENTS are

becoming increasingly frustrated

over vandalism in the area.

They say there have been at least

six incidents of egging and one

instance of rubbish bins being

intentionally damaged.

Wigram’s Tia Tuuta-Rurehe

said her family’s house on Winfield

St was egged by three people

in a white hatchback a fortnight

ago.

She also believed the same

group tried to steal her car on

Monday last week. The alleged

group were wearing black hoodies,

but she could not identify

them, she said.

Six houses had been hit by eggs

in her neighbourhood, she said.

• By Bridget Rutherford

A 16-YEAR-OLD has been

identified as the alleged

scammer who threatened his

victims with gang retaliation if

they did not pay up.

Senior Constable Wayne Stapley

said the teenager had been

referred to Police Youth Aid,

which would decide the best

course of action and whether to

lay charges.

Massacre victims remembered

• By Bridget Rutherford

MARJORY Stoneman Douglas

High School student Elee Siev

was sitting in the 900 building

in her afternoon marine science

class on February 14 when

everything changed.

She had her headphones on

as former student Nikolas Cruz

went into another part of the

Florida school and gunned

down more than 30 people, killing

17.

“I had no idea what was happening.

I didn’t hear anything,”

Elee said.

But that day changed

everything, prompting

the survivors to start the

international #NeverAgain

movement calling for tighter

gun control.

The 16-year-old is among

a group of 28 survivors in

Christchurch to meet with

the Student Volunteer Army

to share their experiences of

mobilising after tragedies and

to attend a youth leadership

summit.

“I hope to gain the skills

I will need to help and to

plan out charity events. I’m

really passionate about the

#NeverAgain movement and the

stuff we’ve been doing with gun

control, and fundraising and

volunteering work,” she said.

On Tuesday, Elee planted one

of 17 totara trees in Halswell

Quarry Park with help from

fellow student Madison Leal, 15,

and SVA member Chloe Fraser,

“It’s in the youth aid process,”

he said yesterday.

Last week, police told The Star

the investigation had stalled after

leads they had in identifying

the culprit stagnated.

But this week police had an

unexpected breakthrough.

Said Senior Constable Stapley:

“A bit of extra evidence came forward.

I can’t say what though.”

Police received 23 complaints

to honour Gina Montalto, who

was one of the 14 students and

three teachers killed.

Elee said Gina was a “really

positive person” and on her

colour guard team.

“We had practice every single

day together. It’s like your second

family.”

The students also visited

Christchurch City Fire Station

and the Firefighters Reserve

on Tuesday. They met some

firefighters who helped in the

aftermath of the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

Fire risk management officer

Wayne Hamilton gifted each of

the students a fire service patch,

from those targeted by the

scam, which involved phone

calls and texts to victims who

were told the caller was from the

Mongrel Mob, Highway 61s or

Black Power.

One victim was told to pay

$1000 or Black Power would

burn his house down and harm

his family.

Senior Constable Stapley said

the accused was told on Tuesday

and gave the group two books

on the 9/11 memorial and the

fire service’s history.

SVA vice president Emma

Pratt said the students were

“inspiring.”

“We’re learning from each

other.”

Survivor Delaney Tarr, who

has become a well-known activist,

is among the group visiting

Christchurch.

The Marjory Stoneman

Douglas shooting was the third

deadliest school shooting in

United States history.

Cruz, 19, has been charged

with 17 counts of murder and 17

counts of attempted murder.

Teen identified as alleged scammer

he would be referred to youth

aid. The victims, none of which

paid any money, were also updated,

account numbers, but initially

they could not be linked to the

10-year strategy to boost city art

• By Julia Evans

CHRISTCHURCH IS vying

with Wellington as the country’s

creative capital.

The city council, Creative New

Zealand, ChristchurchNZ and

the Rata Foundation have begun

developing a new 10-year citywide

strategy for the arts.

“In 10 years,

we want to

have a reputation

as a truly

creative city

that embraces

the arts. How

do we make

it happen?” a

Joanna Norris

city council

report said.

But until public feedback is

gathered, there is very little detail

about what the strategy might

look like.

City council general manager

citizens and community Mary

Richardson said it would be determined

“through the engagement

and discussion process.”

“It is expected the strategy will

look at all art forms, creative

industries, arts events, education,

opportunities for emerging arts

practice, arts funding, Māori arts

practice and more,” she said.

But she said operational matters

relating to facilities and

events are excluded.

At this stage there is no breakdown

for the strategy’s budget.

There is no additional budget

allocated through council. However,

the strategy will likely guide

funding allocation for funders,”

Ms Richardson said.

Developing the plan will be

between $18,000 and $20,000,

with an additional $20,000 contributed

by partners.

ChristchurchNZ chief executive

Joanna Norris said a thriving arts

scene contributes enormously to

the vibrancy of the city.

“Galleries, street art, theatre,

live music, film and literature are

all ingredients of an exciting and

sophisticated city. This is why we

are huge supporters of the development

of a city arts strategy,”

she said.

The development of an arts

strategy will ensure that our arts

and creative industries continue

to grow with a clear plan that

supports this, Ms Norris said.

Workshops were held in

Christchurch and Akaroa last

week. On August 11 an open

forum at the Arts Centre will be

held with council staff discussing

themes that came out of the

workshop.

“Further consultation on the

draft strategy will take place

from late September through

October 2018,” Ms Richardson

said.

It is expected the city council

would adopt the final strategy

in November before it it implemented

early next year.

Brigade chief fire officer Mark

over the bank, it landed on its

side on large “springy” bushes,

which saved it from travelling

Mr Buckley said while the two

female occupants did not sustain

any injuries, they were transported

to Christchurch Hospital

to be checked.

He said they were lucky the car

had not rolled further down the

Fire rages, homes at risk

Former police kiosk’s future uncertain

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE POLICE kiosk in Cathedral

Square could be removed after

being left out of plans for the area.

The police kiosk, which was

established in 1986 to increase

the sense of security, has not been

included in Regenerate Christchurch’s

long-term vision for the

Square.

The $60-$80 vision released last

month included three interconnected

spaces; Post Office Place,

Library Plaza and Cathedral

Gardens.

It included the option of three

covered pavilions with a “latticestyle”

translucent roof, which in

designs sits on the site where the

kiosk currently was.

Regenerate Christchurch chief

executive Ivan Iafeta said it had

not made any specific allowances

for the kiosk.

“Regardless of whether, or

where, the pavilions will be included

in the future of the Square,

we believe the space where the

kiosk currently sits could provide

greater benefit in the future as

a community space with uninterrupted

access to the Christ

Church Cathedral.”

Canterbury Metro Commander

Superintendent Lane Todd said

police vacated the kiosk about a

year ago when the lease with the

city council expired.

“With police moving the central

station to Te Omeka, the kiosk was

surplus to police requirements.”

The city council is exploring

ways to use the building.

Spokesman John Filsell said the

kiosk had been used for a number

of events and uses since police

vacated the building, including

storage, a space for lost children

and a communications centre.

It had also been used for the

Christhurch Marathon, Le Race,

and the Kids Festival parade on

the weekend.

UNCERTAIN: The former police kiosk has not been

included in Regenerate Christchurch’s vision for

Cathedral Square.

Centenary celebrations for Smiths City

From auctioning off

livestock to selling

electronics and

furniture, Smiths City

has come a long way in

its 100 years.

Bridget Rutherford

looks back on the

Christchurch-based

company’s history

FEW BUSINESSES could say

they have been around for 100

years, especially after they had

been placed in receivership.

But Smiths City can.

The Christchurch-based company,

which has 37 stores and

more than 500 employees nationwide,

is celebrating a century

in business.

Founded by Henry Cooper

Smith in 1918, it started trading

as City Market, initially auctioning

off grain, livestock and

general goods.

Mr Smith bought the former

Ward & Company City Brewery

site at 550 Colombo St to start

operating the business.

Gradually, it expanded its

product range to include new

and used hardware and furniture.

After originally leasing some

saleyards on St Asaph St, it built

a horse sale ring building on the

Colombo St site in 1933.

In 1938, Smiths City Market

Ltd was registered as a private

company, while in 1953, Smiths

City Market Finance Ltd was

registered and started business.

The Colombo St store started

to expand in the early 1960s

when Smiths City Market bought

the Sucklings Shoes cafeteria

buildings and another block of

shops to expand the store frontage.

Smiths City Market Ltd was

floated as a public company in

1972.

Come 1988, the group turned

into two chains; Smiths City Ltd

and Smiths DIY Ltd.

Smiths City Ltd was to sell

HISTORY: The builders’ showroom at Smiths City’s

homewares, while Smiths DIY

Ltd was for selling builders’

supplies and sports goods. But

trading become difficult, and a

number of North Island stores

were sold.

A new board of directors was

appointed, and the Smith family

connection to the board ended.

In 1991, the company was

placed in receivership, and a new

trading company, Smiths City

(Southern) Ltd was formed to

operate the stores in the South

Island.

The South Island arm was

released from receivership in

1993.

The following year Smiths City

Group Ltd was released, making

it the first publicly-listed company

in the country to recover

from receivership.

When the February 22, 2011,

earthquake struck, several of

Smiths City’s Christchurch

Opinion

Mayor targeted by cyber criminals

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

I’M WRITING this week’s

column about cyber security,

after my experience on the

weekend.

Fortunately I had read a

friend’s tweet on exactly this

subject before I received my

‘ransom email’, otherwise I

might not have known what

to do. I’ve now reported it to

Netsafe NZ and CERT NZ, the

Government authority on cyber

security. They both knew about

it already and gave excellent

advice.

The ‘Fake-tortian Email Scam’

(which is what Netsafe NZ is

calling it) tells you it’s installed

malware on an ‘adult’ website –

I’ve never visited such a site.

It says unless money is paid

through Bitcoin, a video they’d

made would be emailed to my 13

friends. Really? Only 13 friends.

So I knew it was a scam from the

start. But it created the impression

that they could take control

of the person’s computer and use

the webcam. I believed that was

rubbish due to my friend’s tweet.

But it could be frightening to

some people.

SCAM: Lianne Dalziel has learnt first hand how important

it is to protect yourself from cyber criminals.

As a result of this happening,

I’ve learned a lot about how people’s

emails (and even passwords)

can get into this dark place.

Both Netsafe NZ and CERT

NZ have a lot of information

about the types of threats that

exist and how to keep safe. They

both referred to a site called

‘Have I been Pwned?’ – and sure

enough my personal email had

been compromised in three data

breaches over the past few years.

Naturally I’ve changed my

password several times since

then.

I was lucky this was just a

scam. It could have been serious.

And I’m lucky my work emails

are protected by a system that

blocked this email even coming

through. But it has been a timely

reminder about the need for

strong passwords and introducing

two factor authentication

personal emails. I’m onto it.

•If you want to ask Ms

Dalziel a question, email

mayor@ccc.govt.nz.

Put Reader’s Question in

the subject line

Politics

Nicky Wagner

‘Let’s encourage

the growth

of Canterbury’

ONE BENEFIT of being in

Opposition is that you have

more time to spend out in the

community.

I have been visiting businesses

and community organisations,

and hosting National MPs in

Christchurch. And while it has

been informative, it has also

been unsettling.

We have seen headline after

headline about slower projected

economic growth, and survey after

survey showing falling business

confidence. It is one thing

to read about it in the paper, it

is another to hear it from the

businesses and their employees

directly.

I wrote about the employment

reforms in an earlier column.

But aside from employment law

changes comes the changes to

immigration.

The Government is pulling

levers to limit immigration in

Auckland, alter their local housing

market and change usage

patterns. While their efforts are

having little impact in Auckland,

the consequences of such broad,

untargeted policies are being felt

hard in the South Island.

With Canterbury unemployment

around 4 per cent, and jobs

listed double that of 2007, Canterbury

is in need of more workers.

We cannot fill vacancies and

we need more people whether

they are domestic or international

migrants.

It a good proposition for New

Zealanders to move to Canterbury

where we have the capacity,

a lower cost of living, limited

congestion and house prices that

are half that of Auckland.

But there is a genuine concern

among businesses that we will

lose skilled people overseas as

these policies set in.

If our economy continues to

slow and younger generations

look abroad for employment, we

all lose out in the end – employer

and employee alike.

Let’s not do this. Let’s

encourage the growth of

Canterbury with adaptability

and innovation, and remember

that what is good for Auckland

may not be good for the rest of

the country.

Raewyn Murray – He

taking ice cream out to put the

raspberry in. I kept telling her

he moves it to the side but she

wouldn’t have a bar of it and

so never tasted the beautiful

CHICKEN TOPPED WITH BANANA AND FLAPJACK

Ingredients

20g of butter

30g of golden syrup

60g of muesli

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 pinch of salt

1 pinch of pepper

50ml of rapeseed oil

Gardening

Editorial supplied by

www.gardener.kiwi

Be smart with the way you plant

• By Rachel Vogan

AUGUST IS a beautiful month

in the garden, the first of the

bulbs are adding a sparkle of

colour to the ground and many

trees, shrubs and perennials

are stepping up to the plate and

flowering.

And while it still may be cold

outdoors, remember with smart

planting you can place these

colourful plants in spots where

you can see them from indoors.

flowers of these every week for

my posies, and this forces the

wallflower to produce more

stems, which in turn means more

flowers. Plant in full sun; it is

durable to hot and cold and does

cope with poor soils. A good

haircut once a year is all it needs.

Expect a good five years out of

the plant, these wallflowers are

not long-lived but are easy to

grow from stem cuttings in late

spring. It is also a good pollinator

plant too.

NEMESIA ‘STRAWBERRY

RIPPLE’

Look for this if you are after

a little firepower to take you

through the last month of winter

and all the way through spring.

It’s ideal for patio tubs, window

boxes or baskets and garden beds.

While these plants may seem

like they wouldn’t handle much

cold, they do. However, don’t go

making them struggle in an open

garden bed in the coldest regions.

Instead, plant them where they

have some protection from the

house and obviously near a

window so that you can see them

often.

EARLY STACHYURUS

Consider planting the deciduous

Stachyurus praecox as an anchor

tenant shrub that has high winter

and spring interest. Golden

yellow catkin-like flowers appear

in clusters from the still dormant

branches for the next two to three

months, commanding attention

and grabbing your eye. Once the

flowers finish, the plant cloaks

itself in soft green leaves until

June, when it ditches its foliage

to take a rest for a few months.

Happy in the sun or shade, allow

one to 2m in width for it to grow.

ERYSIMUM × HYBRIDA

‘WINTER JOY’

This mid-sized (80cm) evergreen

perennial packs a punch over the

coldest months when it sprinkles

its bright green foliage with stem

after stem of lilac blooms. I pick

LEUCADENDRON

SALIGNUM ‘FIREGLOW’

Leucadendrons are great for

bold statements of colour and

arm-loads of flowers to pick over

the cold months. As the name

suggests, ‘Fireglow’ has vibrant

tones of red, burnt orange and

glowing yellows. It is an easy

to grow, mid-sized compact

shrub, which requires full sun

and excellent drainage to thrive.

Pots and tubs are a good option;

however, they need to be large as

leucadendrons loathe cramped

root zones and grow 1.5m tall.

Cut the flower stems back once

the blooms have finished to

encourage more flower stems for

the following year.

PSEUDOWINTERA

COLORATA ‘RED LEOPARD’

I have been a huge fan and

advocate for this plant for years.

This plant is a hybrid of our

native pepper tree found in

bush areas in many parts of the

country. The dark-red, spotted

leaves intensify over the colder

months, making this plant stand

out. And what’s good about it is

that it seems to grow better in

poor free-draining soils rather

than richer ones where more

nutrients are available. Full sun is

best, although it will cope with a

smidge of shade.

CAMELLIA RETICULATA

‘LOVELY LADY’

With a name like this, and a

flower form and colour to match,

this recently introduced camellia

variety is widely popular. The

large double pink flowers appear

from August and last until around

Labour Weekend. Preferring

semi-shade, this plant is an option

for larger tubs, urns and raised

planters. This is a real statement

plant; use it to create a focal point

or even consider planting it as a

hedge or screen.

FOCAL POINT:

Wallflower ‘Winter

Joy’ prefers semishade.

It is an

option for larger

tubs, urns and

raised planters.

BOLD STATEMENT: Leucadendron

salignum ‘Fireglow’ is a mid-sized

compact shrub, which requires full

sun and excellent drainage to thrive.

Neighbours at war over trees

When neighbours go to war, often

it is over trees. We have been in

the tree business for over 25 years

and has seen it all when it comes to

neighbours arguing over trees.

Big trees don’t respect our carefully

mapped out section boundaries. They

grow free and wide and block views.

They restrict light, drop branches in

high winds, and drop leaves in gutters

and pools. However, these trees have

often been there a lot longer than the

current occupants of the house.

The law says property owners can

cut back any branches or roots from

neighbouring trees that encroach on

their property (at your own cost and

without your neighbour’s agreement).

The big BUT is they can only do that

if it doesn’t endanger the health of

the tree.

When asked about trees on

boundaries we generally recommend

for our client to go to the owner of

the trees in question to discuss their

concern and see if they can work out

a solution. Quite often how our client

conveys their concern will have a big

impact on determining the result.

We have seen everything from verbal

and physical arguments, to time

consuming court cases over trees on

boundaries. When cases end up in

court the final cost of dealing with the

tree often includes big legal bills.

It is always preferable if the two parties

can reach an amicable agreement

about what to do. The owner of the

trees may not even be aware there

is a problem. Often, a resolution is

CALL US NOW 0800 422 328

resolved when a shared cost deal is

worked out between the two parties.

We are never a fan of removing large

trees but unfortunately some trees

outgrow their situation or become

unstable and present a danger. If the

problem is a shade one, it may be

that the tree can be thinned and

pruned.

We are happy to come in to

provide advice or help mediate

between two parties if required.

ADVERTORIAL

A tree is a thing of beauty that adds value to your life, Its worth spending money and time on.

Colourful makeover

for High St

An iconic central city street has received a

colourful makeover. A 50m fence made up

of panels, which runs along High St, between

Cashel and Lichfield Sts, has been given a new

look by a group of Ara Institute of Canterbury

students as part of the city council’s enliven

places programme. The group chose bright

colours to reflect their optimism for the city’s

future. The section of High St used to house

Flying Nun Records, Galaxy Records and a

popular Chinese takeaway. Those landmarks

are referenced in some of the designs that

make up the panels.

New food court for

central city

A mini-food court is being established on an

empty site in the central city, with some of the

old favourites from Re:Start to base themselves

there.

A number of food and beverage carts are

moving to vacant land at 200 High St, opposite

Stencil, which will become known as 03 Eatery.

It was born from a desire to activate vacant

space and to turn it into a gathering place.

Vendors to be based there include A Mouse

Called Bean, The Burger Joint, Smoke ‘n’ Barrel

Street Food ‘n’ Catering, Pure Pulp, Herba

Gourmet, Gelatiamo, Tiki Taco, Fritz’s Wieners

and Marie’s Lebanese.

Herba Gourmet owner Kerry Hastings said the

feedback so far had been positive.

Herba had been on the site for about two

weeks, but others were yet to set up, she said.

“It’s going to look amazing and be a fantastic

spot.”

An 03 Eatery launch party will be held in the

coming weeks to celebrate.

The Wise

Guys opens

A new 1920s bar

and restaurant is

open on Victoria St.

The Wise Guys Bar

and Restaurant has

space The Good Goat

was based before

closing its doors within

months of opening.

The Wise Guys is open

for breakfast and

lunch daily.

What’s

for lunch?

Lux Espresso

66 Gloucester Street

There’s very few things I love more than

a tasty, well put together sammie.

So imagine my delight when I visited

Lux Espresso.

Sandwiches are the star of the show

in the Gloucester St eatery’s cabinet,

which is in CoCA.

It had croissants, sandwich melts,

schiacciata, along with sweet treats and

salads to choose from.

I ordered a J. Friend honey and

mustard glazed ham schiacciata.

Toasted? Yes please.

It was filled with a decent amount of

sweet glazed ham, spinach and cheese,

inside the toasted olive oil-laden

schiacciata.

I was told to go early as the small

eatery became busy at lunchtime and

the sandwiches often sold out. It was

just as well.

After I finished eating the place filled

up, as did the seats in the suntrap

outdoor area.

If you’re after a simple, yet delicious

sandwich, I’d recommend Lux. At $10,

they are good value for money. But

the coffee, although good, is on the

expensive side.

LES

MISÉRABLES

is coming

The 2018 Showbiz season is brought to an epic

conclusion in September with Les Misérables. Winner

of over 100 international awards and seen by over 65

million people worldwide, Les Misérables is a grand

and uplifting story about the survival of the human

spirit. This true modern classic is based on Victor

Hugo’s novel and features one of the most memorable

scores of all time. Great drama never gets old!

In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is

released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment,

but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and

mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of

starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for

redemption relentlessly pursued by police inspector

Javert.

The story of Les Misérables packs an emotional

wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world.

This pop opera features a cast of exceptional singers

and overflows with melodies. Directed by Stephen

Roberston, with musical direction by Richard

Marrett, Les Misérables will be a powerful affirmation

of the human spirit that promises to uplift audiences

seeing it for the first time, and delight those that are

revisiting a much beloved masterpiece.

It’s good news for Christchurch rugby fans

as the All Blacks play against Canterbury and

Otago in the Game of Three Halves which is

being held on the South Island for the first time

on Friday 10 August 2018. The popular event,

which is used to prepare the All Blacks for the

Investec Rugby Championship, has only ever

been held in the North Island previously.

Canterbury Rugby Football

Union, ChristchurchNZ,

V-Base and the Christchurch

Stadium Trust have worked

together to secure the

event for the city. There

are no All Black test

matches scheduled in

Christchurch in 2018

and 2019 – making

Game of Three Halves

the only concrete

opportunity for locals to

see the All Blacks play in

the city for at least the next

two years.

The All Blacks will play

40-minute matches against Canterbury

and Otago, who will also play a 40-minute

match against each other – a total of

120-minutes of entertainment.

Christchurch NZ General Manager of

Attraction Linda Falwasser says getting the All

Blacks to play in Christchurch is great news for

residents, as well as for rugby fans across the

South Island.

“We are excited to be involved in delivering

an event like this for the people of Christchurch

and know that they – as well as fans from

RUgBY -

gAME of

Three Halves

all over the Mainland – will turn out in

their thousands to watch their national and

provincial heroes do battle.

“Ticket prices have been kept low – at

traditional pre-season levels – to ensure the

game is affordable and to make sure everyone

has the chance to see the All Blacks in action.”

The matches are not being

broadcast on TV, so the only

opportunity fans will have to

see the All Blacks play in

the city this year will be

live at AMI Stadium in

Addington.

Linda confirmed all

three teams will meet

with fans for autographs

and photos after the final

whistle blows.

“It’s events like this that

add to the rich social tapestry

of our city and ignite the bold

ambitions of the next generation to

strive and achieve their personal goals.”

She says this game is an opportunity to

showcase why Christchurch should be firmly

placed on the annual playing schedule of our

national team, and included as a host city when

international teams visit the country.

Game of Three Halves will be held at

6.30pm on Friday 10 August at AMI Stadium.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for children

and will go on sale to the public from Monday

30 April at www.ticketdirect.co.nz.

THE SCOOP By Terence J. Quinn is the

first pulsating page-turner of three actionpacked

thrillers featuring the larger than

life character Jonno Bligh. The sweeping

storyline criss-crosses between Sydney,

London, LA and SE Asia as the fates of

three strangers collide in a deadly game of

cat and mouse.

Journalist Jonno Bligh is flying high

with a bestselling book and an Oscar

for Best Screenplay. But along

with the accolades he picks

up a cocaine habit and

a bad dose of writers’

block. Under pressure

to deliver his next

blockbuster, Jonno

sails to the Indian

Ocean in his beloved

yacht The Scoop.

When a violent

storm cripples the

boat, he takes refuge on a

beautiful remote island, where

he vows to get clean. Little does

he know that the murderous gangster

BangBang Budiman uses the island to

hide the spoils of his shipping heists in the

notorious Malaccan Strait. Jonno watches

in horror as BangBang and his crewmen

brutalise two women on the beach before

leaving them to die. He manages to rescue

Annie Greenwood, whose husband has

already been murdered. Together they flee

the island with the stolen loot, relentlessly

pursued by the vengeful BangBang.

As the killer hunts them down in the

treacherous waters of South East Asia,

Jonno and Annie are forced to come to

terms with their own destructive demons

– and a discovery that will change their

lives forever.

4 Law/PuzzLEs

For many years trusts have been used

as an important tool for asset protection

and estate planning in New Zealand. In

the 1990s there was a boom in the number

of family trusts established in New

Zealand. A significant reason for this was

the Residential Care Subsidy (“Subsidy”)

scheme.

The Subsidy was developed to assist

those people needing long-term

residential care in a hospital or rest home.

As the Subsidy is financially means

assessed, you will only qualify

if you have both assets and

income under certain

monetary thresholds.

From 1 July 2018,

asset thresholds for

the Subsidy are:

• $227,125 if you

are single or for a

couple with both

partners in care; or

• $124,379 for a

couple with one partner

in care (not including

the home and car which are

exempt from being considered

in the asset test in this situation). Couples

can elect to be tested under the first option

in which case the house and car will not

be exempt and will be included in the

asset test.

To meet the income test, any income

generated from your assets must be less

than $992 if you’re single, less than $1,983

if you and your partner are both in care,

or $2,975 for a couple where one partner

is in care.

This is where issues with the family trust

may be relevant. Even if you qualify under

both the asset test and the income test, the

Ministry of Social Development (“MSD”)

will enquire about your family trust

including your actions around selling,

RESIDENtIAL CARE

SUBSIDIES, tRUStS,

AND DEPRIvAtIoN

The current legal

landscape

transferring and gifting of your personal

assets to the trust. In particular, the MSD

is looking for signs of “deprivation” of

income or assets. If the MSD determines

that you have deprived yourself of an

asset or income, they can add that asset

or income back into your financial means

assessment. The MSD has discretion to

determine whether or not deprivation has

occurred and as such each application will

be treated on a case by case basis.

This area of law is in a state of flux.

An important case was heard

in the Court of Appeal last

month and policy around

the Subsidy may

change significantly

between when you

establish your trust

and when you apply

for a Subsidy. As it

stands, if you have

finished gifting to

your trust and the

gifting has been under

the allowable yearly

amount (gifting to be no

more than $27,000 per couple

or $6,000 in the five years before an

application for a Subsidy is made) it is

unlikely that the MSD will consider your

actions as depriving yourself of assets or

income. However, as this area of law is

currently evolving and each case is treated

separately, you should be aware that this

position can change at any time.

If you have a trust, it is important that

its records are keep up to date so that

it can continue to be a valuable tool for

future planning. At Harmans we have a

team with specialist knowledge available

to provide you with legal advice about

your trust. You can contact Phillipa Shaw

at Harmans on 03 352 2293 to arrange an

appointment to discuss this.

New research from the University of

Canterbury published today has found

that a shrinking river is less able to

support larger predatory fish, such as

the highly-valued sports fish like brown

trout or at-risk native fish like galaxiids

and eels.

Using data from 29 New Zealand

rivers, a new research paper by

lead author Freshwater Ecology

Professor Angus McIntosh of the

School of Biological Sciences, UC

Science, and co-authored

by UC mathematician

Associate Professor

Michael Plank ,UC

biologist Dr Helen

Warburton, and

collaborators from

NIWA and overseas,

has been published

in the online journal

Science Advances.

The research findings

in the paper – ‘Capacity

to support predators scales with

habitat size’ – show that reducing the

size of a habitat undermines its capacity

to support larger predators.

This potentially explains why

reductions in habitat size are such

a powerful driver of predator loss

worldwide, Professor McIntosh says.

“If you make a habitat smaller, for

example by taking water out of a river,

you shrink the physical dimensions of

SHRINkINg

RIvERS AffECt

fish populations

the space which can reduce the size of

predators, such as fish, that live there.

When predators are smaller, they are

not as efficient in their energy use so the

food, such as stream insects, available

in the habitat will support fewer and

smaller fish,” he says.

“We show that smaller rivers support

fewer fish per unit of prey resource

compared to larger rivers and we

derive a theory explaining why this

happens. The theory is based on how

the dimensions of a habitat

constrain the body size of

individual predators, the

fish in our case, and

how that affects the

efficiency of prey

use.”

“One of the neat

things about this

study is that the

mathematical theory

actually helped us to

understand the underlying

causes of population declines.

This means we can be better informed

when making decisions that affect

habitats for key species in New Zealand,”

Associate Professor Plank says.

How much water is taken out of

rivers is a hot topic and the subject of

great public debate and lengthy court

battles. The researchers expect this

work will have an important influence

on decisions about resource use,

particularly regarding the flow in rivers.

6 HEaLtH/History

Mental wellbeing is one of the most

valuable business assets. Workplaces

that prioritise mental health

have better engagement,

reduced absenteeism and

higher productivity,

while people have

improved wellbeing,

greater morale and

higher job satisfaction.

Mental illness is

largely an unspoken

health issue, but it’s very

common. With one in six New

Zealanders diagnosed with a

common mental illness at

some time in their lives,

your employees are highly

likely to be affected -

directly or indirectly - by

a mental health issue.

Mental illness doesn’t just

impact the person. It impacts

families, communities and

workplaces too.

The World Health Organisation

predicts mental illness will be the

leading cause of disability and absence

in the workplace by 2030 if it’s not

proactively addressed.

How it impacts your

workplace

Positive mental health leads to more

positive outcomes for employees, and

better business results too.

“Worker wellbeing is good for business

and putting wellbeing at the centre

of everything you do will grow your

business and help attract and retain

talent,” says Geoff McDonald, former

Global Vice-President HR at Unilever.

“Leaders within organisations need

to give the same level of attention and

priority to mental health as they do to

safety and invest in training managers

and employees on managing mental

health.”

Since experiencing a massive

panic attack ten years ago, UK-based

McDonald has campaigned to put

worker wellbeing at the centre of

MENtAL HEALtH

in the workplace

business, and to break the stigma

associated with depression and

anxiety in the workplace.

Tips to promote good

mental health in the

The Canterbury Roll is a five-metre

long English genealogical text, the

only one of its kind in the

Southern Hemisphere.

Part of the University

of Canterbury’s

collection since 1918,

the Canterbury Roll

was created in the

early 1400s, begins

with Noah and traces

the rulers of England

from the mythical Brutus

to King Edward IV. It was

subsequently modified a number

of times before it emerged in its final

form, probably during the reign of King

Richard III.

Modern University of Canterbury

(UC) researchers and students are now

asking new questions and developing

new techniques to increase access to this

unique historic item.

Project director Dr Chris Jones

will share the results of cutting-edge

scientific research undertaken at the

start of 2018 by a team of British and

New Zealand researchers. He will

also explore the world in which the

Canterbury Roll was originally made

“Once owned by the

original Nurse Maude,

Sybilla Maude, the

Canterbury Roll is

the most significant

and substantial

medieval artefact in

New Zealand. For 100

years, UC has been the

guardian of this unique

600-year-old treasure, which

tells the history of England from

its mythical origins to the late Middle

Ages,” Dr Jones says.

To mark the centenary of its

acquisition, UC is releasing a new

digital edition and translation of the

Canterbury Roll.

Dr Chris Jones is a Senior Lecturer in

History at the University of Canterbury

and Director of the Canterbury Roll

Project. A Fellow of the Royal Historical

Society, his research focuses on the

thought of medieval chroniclers. He

has edited three volumes that explore

medieval and Early Modern legacies in

Aotearoa New Zealand that range from

rare books to Magna Carta.

By Ross Kiddie

Ever since Lexus and Mercedes-Benz

launched into a competition developing

gearboxes with an ever-increasing

multitude of ratios, I’ve been asking myself

when it is all going to stop.

Just when it looked like nine gears would

end the war, Ford has jumped into the fray

and has developed a 10-speed traditional

torque converter gearbox.

I’m sure that new unit will be made

available through a multitude of models

from the big global company, however, my

first experience with it came by way of the

uprated Ford Mustang.

Mustang has become well established

in New Zealand, and being Ford’s only

large car here, that is no surprise, while

its heritage and tradition makes it most

appealing.

Although its history harks back over

50 years, today’s Mustang feels fresh. Yes,

there is a little bit of a raw, aggressive edge

which, as a driver, makes you relate to its

predecessors.

Today’s Mustang has the widelyacclaimed

5-litre (302 cubic inch) Coyote

V8 engine. However, it can also be

purchased with a turbocharged, 2.3-litre

unit which, from my experience with

the Ecoboost four-cylinder series, would

certainly be up to the task with its 224kW

and 441Nm outputs.

Nevertheless, it’s the V8 that appeals to

me, and I wasn’t disappointed. It pumps

out a hefty 339kW (up 33kW

from previously) along

with 556Nm of torque.

In true V8 fashion, it

works away with a

tantalising howl and

bark out the exhaust

pipes. From the

moment it fires you

know you are in for

an exciting drive,

there is a constant

audible growl.

Drive is channelled

through the new, paddleshift

10-speeder through to

the rear wheels, and there are

no surprises there; rear-drive has always

been the Mustang configuration, but what

it does do is deliver an involving driving

experience. It is responsive and eager, and

has electronic modes which the driver can

set to personal preference, and there’s even

a track mode if you want to go drifting in

the weekend.

Therein lies a little secret; the Mustang

DISCovER

the new Ford

Mustang

in this form is quite lively at the rear, it’s

easy to test tyre grip with power on, and

although the traction control systems are

there to intervene, they are non-invasive,

you can initiate oversteer to a certain

level. It’s easy to see why that is obtainable.

With those healthy power outputs, the

ingredients are in place for adventure.

This is even more so on a wet surface. I

had the evaluation over a filthy Queen’s

Birthday Weekend, and finding

a dry road wasn’t a reality.

However, I can report from

my previous experience

with Mustang that

it handles superbly;

there is a lot of rubber

on the road with its

19in Michelin tyres,

and grip is adequate

unless vigorous throttle

application is requested.

Up front the turn-in is

decisive, it is directional

and controllable in the tricky

corners, there is just enough

mechanical sophistication within the

suspension and chassis design so that the

driver can push hard with confidence.

The combination of power and handling

is enticing. I left the normal drive setting

active for most of my time in the test car;

in the wet I didn’t feel it needed anything

more spirited, while the new gearbox offers

a smooth transition of power and changes

which are almost seamless.

The range starts here at $62,990 for the

2.3-litre, bearing in mind there is also

a convertible option that adds around

$5000 for each engine variant. The V8

GT fastback lands at $79,990, and it is

fully specced with Ford’s most up-to-date

technology. One minor item I really like

is the Mustang logo projected downward

from the door mirrors at night, lighting the

way to the vehicle.

Even though it has a good specification,

it’s really a car for just two occupants.

Ford market the Mustang as a 2+2, and

effectively that is what it is; two youngsters

could be seated comfortably in the rear,

but it is not an area which adults would

enjoy being in.

Up front, though, it’s a different story.

The seats are glorious and the suspension

absorbent even over Christchurch’s broken

roads. However, it’s on the highway where

the Mustang excels; it is a purposeful and

capable high-country charger, and it has

just so much appeal it captures attention

everywhere.

For that reason any prospective buyer

had best be prepared to be looked at, the

test car was bright red and had vivid black

stripes over the length of the car, it drew

attention everywhere I took it.

In all forms the Mustang is a real egobooster,

yet it’s also a darn fine car and

with the latest technology, it is truly stateof-the-art.

Key Warriors return for clash against the Titans

• By Michael Burgess

AS THE Warriors enter the final

quarter of the season, the cavalry

are starting to return.

The team have overachieved

so far this year, but it will

mean little if they don’t perform

in the six remaining games this

season, starting with a tricky

match on the Gold Coast on

Sunday.

It’s a must win game – both for

confidence and also their finals

prospects – and their hopes have

been boosted with Tohu Harris,

Blake Green and Issac Luke all

named to start.

Second rower Leivaha Pulu

could also make a long awaited

return after being listed on the

interchange bench.

The presence of Harris is

vital in the run-in. The Kiwis

international has been one of

the buys of the season, and

adds both attacking threat and

defensive grunt to the right edge.

He’s developed a strong

combination with Shaun

Johnson on the right flank,

and his big game experience

will be crucial in a Warriors

team that is still green around

the edges. The 26-year-old comes

back four weeks after picking up

a knee injury in the round 16

loss to the Sharks.

It’s a similar situation for

Luke after the hooker limped

off midway through the second

half against the Storm with a

calf strain. Pulu could be a

wildcard as the season enters a

climax.

He was a key part of the

Warriors five-game winning run

to start the season, before being

forced off with a foot injury in

the round six loss to the Broncos.

He brought a physical presence

to the Warriors pack that has

been hard to replicate since then

and his strong performance

against Wyong in the reserve

grade last week (60min, 76m

2018 NRL

The Star

from 10 runs and 26 tackles) was

an encouraging sign.

Why the Hurricanes won’t beat the Crusaders

BEATING THE Crusaders

at home is hard enough, but

beating them in a home

play-off game has proven to be

impossible.

The defending champions hold

a distinct home advantage going

into Saturday’s semi-final against

the Hurricanes in Christchurch.

The Crusaders have played 19

previous home play-off games

dating back to 1998 and have

won every time. Three of those

In spite of being the underdog,

Mates look to end finals hoodoo

• By Gordon Findlater

TWO YEARS ago Josh Archer

and Logan Bell couldn’t hold

back the tears as they suffered

grand-final agony for the second

year running.

But on Sunday the Rugby

Park hoodoo will end for one of

them, while the other will come

oh-so-close for a third time.

In 2016, the two

co-captained Shirley Boys’

High School to their second

straight UC Championship

final at Rugby Park, where

they came within a point

of trumping competition

favourites Christchurch Boys’

High School in the 20-21 loss. A

year earlier they were part of the

team that lost 13-32 to St Bede’s

College.

Now they are both in their

first full seasons at premier

metro level, and will do battle

against each other when

New Brighton and Lincoln

University meet in the Hawkins

Trophy final.

Understandably, the agony of

2016 is still a sore spot for the

pair due to the nature of the defeat.

Bell – a second five-eighths

– scored a late try to get his

team within a point of CBHS.

But the conversion kick that

would have given SBHS a 22-21

lead was missed.

“It comes up every so often,

it’s still a touchy subject . . . the

annoying thing is it’s going to

be one of us on the receiving

end again,” said Bell.

“It was heart-breaking to go

that close. It’s still to this day

something we talk about,” said

Archer.

Since that day Archer, a

hooker, hasn’t strayed far from

the nest and has returned to his

boyhood club of New Brighton.

History suggests the transition

to the seaside club is natural. A

number of their premier team

is made up of SBHS old boys,

including Boris van Bruchem

and Jordon French, who were

both part of the 2016 school

final.

“It’s a similar culture to the

one we shared during the years

at high school. We’re all boys

However, that will

them on Sunday.

that come from the eastside

of Christchurch . . . we share a

brotherhood, that’s something I

do feel,” said Archer.

However, Bell opted to play

his senior rugby at Lincoln

University where he is on a

scholarship. “It’s always good

to play New Brighton because

I know I’m seen as the outcast

that strayed away to Lincoln,”

he said.

In recent years, the two clubs

have struck up a strong rivalry

that peaked in 2016 when Lincoln

University defeated a defiant

New Brighton team which

played the majority of the match

with 14 men after Billy Harmon

was red-carded for a tip tackle

on Jordie Barrett.

Lincoln Uni scholarships a necessary evil

THE RISE of Lincoln University

in the metro rugby competition

is both the best and worst thing

to happen to the premier club

competition.

It was just over a decade ago

the club’s premier team dropped

out of the top division due to not

being able to field a competitive

team. However, it now seems a

distant memory.

In recent years Lincoln have

come into each season as heavy

favourites, on most occasions

they fulfil expectations and this

trend doesn’t look like ending

any time soon.

The key advantage Lincoln

has over other clubs is the ability

to offer scholarships to some of

the best prospects around the

country coming out of high

school. For keen followers of

senior rugby in Christchurch

this has some major cons but

also some pros.

There’s no doubt the talent

pool at Lincoln has allowed

cynics like myself to see the

metro competition as a given for

Lincoln each year.

However, it’s also allowed

club rugby followers to

bear witness to tomorrow’s

international stars before they’ve

hit the headlines.

You only need to look at

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

Lincoln’s 2016 title-winning

team. A midfield combination of

Jack Goodhue and Jordie Barrett

wouldn’t look out of place at the

All Blacks. Just two years ago

that’s a combination Lincoln

boasted.

You can’t ignore the nostalgia

factor for people who can say

they saw Jordie Barrett singlehandily

destroy Sydenham in the

2016 club semi-final by scoring

two spectacular late tries and

skinning Mitchell Hunt after

a break from Lincoln’s own 22

to score the match-winner on

full-time.

Would we have got the chance

to see Barrett take over at club

level if it wasn’t for Lincoln’s

university scholarships? Probably

not, his older brother Scott

also came to Christchurch on a

Lincoln scholarship.

We can also thank Lincoln

University for their part in

developing some top talent

from other parts of the country

who have since gone onto help

Canterbury and the Crusaders’

dominance in recent years.

But, is it worth killing our club

competition by making it an

uneven playing field?

It’s hard not to address the

issue of talent spread when

Lincoln’s bench and even their

colts side have players many

other clubs would dream of

being able to start.

Regardless of what happens on

Sunday I wouldn’t blame New

Brighton from claiming they’ve

already won the competition.

Some clubs are beginning to see

success as being the best of the

rest.

In fairness to Lincoln they

have to bring their A game

every week. There is no denying

that outside of traditional

rivalries they are the one club

everyone else wants to topple. In

a roundabout kind of way this

is helping to battle-harden the

next generation of Canterbury

players crafting their trade at the

Lincoln farm.

Perhaps the best way of

looking at it is seeing Lincoln as

a necessary evil.

CBHS have eyes on Moascar Cup

• By Gordon Findlater

WHEN Christchurch Boys’ High

School saw the fixture list for the

UC Championship they had their

eyes set on two games.

One was the annual ‘college

match’, the other was a potential

Moascar Cup challenge in Nelson.

The cup is the equivalent of

the Ranfurly Shield and has been

held by Nelson College since they

lifted it from Timaru Boys’ High

School two year ago.

CBHS will travel to Nelson

as favourites to bring the cup

home. They are undefeated in the

championship this year, while

Nelson College will be looking to

strengthen their hopes of making

the semi-finals with just three

rounds remaining.

Two other match-ups in

Christchurch will also play a big

part in how the top four shapes.

Third-placed Lincoln Combined

can give their hopes of making

the semi-finals for the first time a

massive boost when they travel to

fourth-placed St Bede’s College.

Lincoln Combined will face

a tough run to the end of the

season with Nelson and CBHS

awaiting them. Their hopes on

Saturday have also been dealt a

blow with captain Wil Gualter

Guide to the weekend sporting action

• By Jacob Page

Metro rugby – Hawkins

Trophy finals

The curtain comes down on the

Christchurch Metro rugby season

with three finals on Saturday.

Lincoln University will look to grab

two trophies this season when they

face New Brighton at Rugby Park in

the Hawkins Trophy decider. Marist

Albion will play High School Old

Boys at Ed Mac Park in the plate final

and Shirley will host Burnside at

Burwood Park.

Rugby League – Massetti

Cup

All eyes will be on Cuthberts

Green and Leslie Park in the final

round of the Massetti Cup on Saturday.

The battle for fourth will be the

most intriguing story line. Halswell

Hornets have a two-point advantage

on Celebration Lions for fourth spot,

but if Celebration can beat secondplaced

Northern Bulldogs and the

Hornets lose to third-placed Hornby

Panthers, then Celebration can sneak

into the play-offs on points difference.

The only fly in that ointment is

both Hornby and Northern will be

trying to win themselves to secure

second on the ladder and a home

semi-final. Round-robin winners

Linwood Keas will look to go

through the regular season undefeated

when they face Papanui Tigers

at Linwood Park, while Aranui and

Riccarton will do battle at Wainoni

Park.

Football – Southern League

A heavyweight showdown between

Cashmere Technical and Dunedin

Technical will headline the fourth

round of the Southern League at

the weekend. Both teams are eyeing

top spot on the ladder and a win for

either on Sunday at Garrick Memorial

Park will achieve that. There are

two other games in Christchurch

with Ferrymead Bays hosting Nelson

Suburbs at English Park on Sunday,

while Nomads will welcome Southland

United to Tulett Park on Sunday.

Coastal Spirit will hit the road

on Saturday to play Queenstown

AFC in Queenstown.

After going through the

University were tipped up by

Christchurch in their opening

since seen a return to form and

are unbeaten since.

Sissons says an emphasis has

been put on perfecting set play

since the Christchurch result.

In the past, Lincoln University’s

tight five have been an area

teams have looked to exploit.

However, it hasn’t been the case

in 2018 with the talented trio of

Ben Morris, Mitchell Dunshea

and Hamish Dalzell all pipped

for big things in the future.

Dunshea and Dalzell have

already appeared for the Crusaders,

while captain Morris is a

player Sissons rates highly.

“He’s got better and better

every year and is a very smart

player . . . he’s the sort of player

that is the first name to go on

your team sheet,” said Sissons.

Their semi-final against Sydenham

gasson st

Long-established car light specialists,

Braxton Car Lights, are now shining their

lights from a sparkling new address – just

around the corner from their familiar

Brougham Street site.

Just prior to Christmas, the business

moved from 325 Brougham Street to 95

Gasson St, where they offer a brighter

showroom, easier access for their customers

and plenty of off-street parking.

“We’re all set up in our new premises,”

sales manager Richard Vernimmen says,

“and continuing to provide our customers

with an extensive range of replacement

lights for most Japanese, European and

New Zealand-made vehicles. We can cover

most vehicles on the road, and all our lights

are fully checked and in perfect working

order.”

If they don’t have it in stock, they can

source it from one of the other branches in

the nationwide BE Group, Richard says. BE

is one of New Zealand’s largest importers of

car, truck and commercial parts.

Braxton Car Lights also offers a repair

service for headlights, with their skilled

staff of three having 80 years’ experience

in the automotive trade between them.

They also specialise in light adjuster and

light conversion of American

car lights and their repair

service includes plastic

welding, drying out, and

re-silvering, re-sealing

and lens refurbishment.

Their services can also

be arranged through

VEHICLES

FOR

SALE

Below is a small

selection of our

great deals!

Volvo SUV line-up

To advertise in Best Motorbuys, phone Lea Godfrey 021 277 3086

I’M NOT convinced having

waiting lists for certain

vehicles is a good thing.

However, the Volvo

salespeople are fizzing at

the moment, they have a

fresh product line-up and

sales are booming to the

point, in some cases, where

supply can’t meet demand,

a three-month wait could

be expected.

If you also add in

the electric vehicle

development work Volvo

are doing at factory level,

the focus going forward

has shifted, there is less

emphasis on the traditional

internal combustion engine

and buyers are flocking

to hybrids and anything

plug-in.

This evaluation surrounds

Volvo’s new XC40,

a traditional sport utility

vehicle with petrol power

only at this stage, and from

my perspective it is a model

which will sell well without

a hybrid option although

a three-cylinder hybrid is

on the drawing boards. The

XC40 is a classy, dynamic,

practical wagon which will

keep any buyer with a small

family happy for years.

The XC40 is built in similar

fashion to its XC90 and

XC60 stablemates, in fact

it has a similar platform,

albeit scaled down so that

it contends in the mid-size

luxury SUV market against

say, Audi Q3, BMW X2 and

Mercedes-Benz GLA.

There are three grades

for XC40, it starts at

around $59,900 and ends

at $72,900 for the T5. The

evaluation car carried

R-Design extras which accounted

for an extra $8000.

All have the same engine, a

2-litre turbocharged fourcylinder

unit.

However, in T5 form the

power outputs are uprated

substantially, it develops

180kW and 350Nm, up

42kW and 50Nm from the

two T4 lower grade variants.

Incidentally, the T4

comes with either frontwheel-drive

or four-wheeldrive,

the T5 is all-wheeldrive

only.

I’d particularly like to

drive the entry-level model,

I’m sure it will be just as

appealing but, in the interim,

I’m not disappointed

with the fizzy, feisty nature

of the T5 with its high

power engine. It reminds

me very much of the many

that are now arriving from

the big luxury car brands,

its configuration lending

VOLVO XC40: Classy, practical, sport utility vehicle.

itself to good performance

and economy. In terms of

figures, the XC40 will accelerate

from a standstill to

100km/h in an easy 6.5sec,

while Volvo claim a 7.1-litre

per 100km/h (40mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage

average.

That latter figure coincided

well with the trip

computer readout in the

test car, my four-day average

was sitting at 8l/100km

(35mpg), with a 100km/h

instantaneous figure listing

at 5.5l/100km (51mpg), the

engine sitting just above

idle at 1600rpm.

• Price – Volvo XC40

T5, $78,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4425mm; width,

1863mm; height,

1652mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheeldrive,

1969cc, 182kW,

350Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.5sec

• Fuel usage –

7.1l/100km

There are drive modes

which will hasten engine

urgency and those which

can be tailored for individual

preference. There’s

also an eco mode which

promotes lethargy so that

every precious drop of

fuel is used sparingly. That

aside, I felt comfort/normal

mode suited my preference

and I found the engine very

responsive and willing.

Drive to all wheels is

through an eight-speed automatic

transmission, there

are paddle shifters if the

driver wants to get involved

in the gearshift process.

The R-Design specification

model sits on 20in

wheels, and with the low

profile tyres (245/45) there

is an complicated feel from

beneath, the suspension

does well to soak up the

effect of little tyre wall flex,

but over Christchurch’s

broken roads there is often

a little bit of a jiggle over

the many slow speed ruts

and bumps.

That aside, the suspension

works well, and if you

take into consideration

there is cross-country

capability – that is what XC

stands for – the 40 is most

definitely the quintessential

all-rounder.

On-road handling is

sublime, if you add in the

feisty nature of the engine

and the high grip Pirelli

rubber, you get a sporty

sensation from underneath,

I wouldn’t say the steering

has solid feedback, but

there is just enough feel to

gauge how the car is reacting

underneath.

Space on the inside is

greater than you would

imagine. At 4.4m the XC40

isn’t big on the outside, but

you would expect nothing

less from Volvo, there

is good use of space and

comfort is hugely high.

The trim materials

are high grade and the

specification list is too vast

to list in any detail, except

to say I particularly like the

vertical central dash screen

which is host to a myriad

of functions, all intuitive

and with large easy-to-read

graphics.

Volvo have made clear

the direction they are heading

in terms of automotive

design, the electric age is its

priority. While I have come

expect that, and it won’t be

Volvo alone, I do find it a

little sad that we will see a

lot less of the great engines

and driveline technology

Volvo has presented us with

over the years.

Now is certainly the time

to buy the quintessential

SUV, and the XC40 would

be a fine choice.

Show Homes - the ultimate way to shop around

In Christchurch and the surrounding rural districts we are blessed

with an extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle featuring all the latest

in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a

way nothing else can. You can absorb

the ambiance they present, admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology all in one place, under

a roof that you may just select for your

new home.

At a show home you can ask

questions, take notes and compare them

to other builders’ presentations. You

don’t have to visualise or imagine full

scale from a photo in a glossy, you can

simply see at a glance, often instinctively,

features you like, things you would avoid

and clever innovation that you never

would have thought of.

Best of all you will see the building

companies’ attention to detail, from

design, construction and finish through

to interior decor, outdoor living and

landscaping.

Show homes are the perfect way to

get a good idea of pricing, discover what

is good quality and value, learn about

superior use of space, future-proofing,

ongoing maintenance and long term

returns. So what are you waiting for?

Check out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.

The Big ‘O’

Encore Show

FOLLOWING last weekend's hugely popular Child Cancer

fundraiser 'e Great Variety Tribute Show', one of the show's stars,

Tony Gregory-Hunt, returns with his all-star band to A Rolling

Stone this Saturday for a free encore performance.

“e show was incredibly popular, and we're delighted that

Tony is returning on Saturday with his Roy Orbison and Friends

Show,” said Gretchen, co-owner of A Rolling Stone.

Christchurch based performer, Tony Gregory-Hunt has been

channelling the 'Big O' for over 10 years, making regular

appearances on the club circuit and at festivals and events.

Only a few months ago he was a headlining act at Australia's

Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival, playing two shows on the main

stage.

Tony delivers a faultless rendition of Orbison and masterfully

covers the greatest hits from 'Only the Lonely', through to

'Pretty Woman' and 'You Got It'. On Saturday he will be joined

on stage by his full backing band and singers.

Don't miss your chance to check out this great live show,

which runs from 8pm – 11pm this Saturday. Entry to the event

is free. Make a night of it at this great live music venue!

Reserve a table for dinner, 03 377 4787.

A Rolling Stone is open from 10am until late 7 days a week.

ey serve great food, make excellent coffee, pour the perfect

Guinness and have something on every night to keep you

entertained.
