thought

he would

drown

during

attack

• By Georgia O’Connor Harding and

Andrew King

A GROUP of youths chanted

“drown him” as they held the

head of a 15-year-old under water

on Saturday night.

The teenager was brutally

beaten up in Rolleston before

being dragged to a water race and

pushed under.

Police are following strong leads

in identifying the attackers.

Said Senior Sergeant Pete Stills:

“He has received a real pasting.

His eyes were swollen shut and

he needed stitches for a pretty

serious gash underneath his chin,”

he said.

“It was a harrowing attack by

a group on a lone individual,

“completely unprovoked and

cowardly”.

The attack appears to have been

robbery-motivated.

Four youths approached the

15-year-old on Tennyson St,

Rolleston, at about 10.30pm and

demanded his cap, Senior Sergeant

Stills said.

He had earlier been at a nearby

fireworks event in Foster Park.

When he refused to hand over

the cap, the group repeatedly

punched him and kicked him on

the ground.

They dragged him to a nearby

water drain and held his head

under the water.

DRUGS ARE a terrible thing

and they can lead to promising,

talented people going on a

tangent that ultimately leads to

tragedy.

On pages 4 and 5, we look

at one of those individuals –

Marcus Tucker.

Tucker was murdered in

April, 2016, and last week his

killer was jailed for life.

He leaves behind three

children who will go through

their lives without their dad,

and with many questions as to

why.

Tucker’s case is a tragic one.

He was no angel. He got in

with the wrong people and did

a reasonable amount of time

in jail.

Getting in with the wrong

people has its upside if you are

of that ilk, but it also brings

with it constant danger.

Some people play for keeps

and getting killed or a severe

beating can come with even the

most minor of indiscretion.

But the sad thing about

Tucker’s case is that he may

have been the victim of

mistaken identity.

E. coli found in Lyttelton pump station

in a pump station used to supply

the new car park would take

“If the council’s wanting

It will cost motorists $2.80 an

be $10, while the night-time

hourly rate would be $2.50. In

ECO-BURIAL

A new eco-burial site will open

within the Diamond Harbour

Memorial Gardens Cemetery

next week. This will be the

first eco-burial site to open in

Christchurch or Banks Peninsula.

A more environmentally friendly

process than what is usual in

New Zealand, eco-burials involve

a shallower plot. The body is

not embalmed, is dressed in

natural, biodegradable materials,

and the coffin or shroud is also

biodegradable and non-toxic.

QE II MAORI NAMES

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board will

participate in a closed workshop

at the end of the month to discuss

whether the new QE II site will

receive some Maori names. The

workshop will be with the city

council. There may be a Maori

name added on to the name of the

park or some streets may receive

Maori names. Discussions and

approval from the Queen’s office

will be required before anything

can be added to the park’s

original name.

NEW COUNCIL VIDEO GEAR

The video equipment used to live

stream city council meetings has

been upgraded. City council chief

information officer Vicki Taylor

said it was a planned upgrade to

replace technology that was more

than seven-years-old. She said

the improvements had utilised

technology changes over that

The new Memorial Avenue

Gateway Bridge will open to traffic

next week. The bridge, with

its arches, is the final piece to be

dollar upgrade of Russley Rd.

An open day on top of the bridge

will take place on Saturday from

Fire rages, homes at risk

The lively young boy who grew

Small-time criminal Marcus Tucker was brutally murdered over a possible mistaken

identity. Two weeks before his death, his mother and brother pleaded with him to

sort himself out. Andrew King reports

FLIRTY, LOYAL, protective and

a troublemaker were words family

and friends used to describe the

man who was brutally killed

after he was wrongly accused of

ripping off a drug dealer.

Marcus Luke Tucker’s badly

bashed and burnt body was found

by fishermen on Anzac Day, 2016,

in a drain on a country road near

Doyleston on the way to Leeston.

Last week, Peter John Carroll,

53, was sentenced in the High

Court at Christchurch to life

imprisonment with a minimum

non-parole period of 17 years for

Mr Tucker’s murder.

A post-mortem showed he had

a fractured skull, and broken

nose, eye socket and shoulder

blade, as well as missing teeth.

BROTHERS: Matt Tucker said

no one was closer to Marcus

than him.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

It was later discovered the

injuries were caused by a

sustained and brutal attack by

Carroll with a metal steering lock.

Marcus was born on May

21, 1979, at Burwood Hospital,

weighing 2.9kg (6lb 9oz). He

was the oldest of three Tucker

children.

His mother Robyn and stepfather,

Murray Tucker, who was

in the military, spent a handful of

years in Christchurch before they

were transferred to Hobsonville,

Auckland, in 1982

“He [Marcus] was a busy

boy who never stopped. He

was always into lots of little

mischievous things,” Mrs Tucker

told The Star this week.

She recalls Marcus and a friend,

when they were about 4, getting

onto a nearby airfield on their

trikes while the family searched

for them.

A low flying helicopter hovering

over the airfield spotted them and

let the family know where they

were.

“He just smiled about the whole

situation,” Mrs Tucker said.

In 1983, the family moved to

Waiouru, in the central North

Island, where Marcus started

school the following year.

Not an academic, Marcus soon

showed a skilled hand with art

and had a keen ear for music –

two passions he kept close right

up until the end.

In 1985, the family returned to

Burnham and Marcus attended

Weedons School. He played

sports, made friends and was a

normal kid, his mother said.

His father left the army in 1990

and the family moved to Fairlie.

Marcus attended Fairlie Primary

and Mackenzie College.

It was in Fairlie where the

wheels started to fall off.

His brother, Matt Tucker, told

The Star Marcus had a falling out

with his parents.

It is something Mrs Tucker

doesn’t want to discuss.

When Marcus was about 16, he

spent time with a foster family in

Timaru for about eight months.

It was here where the trouble

started.

up to meet a terrible end

He was involved in robbing

Russian seamen and was sent

to the Whakapakari facility

on Great Barrier Island, a Government-funded

and supervised

wilderness boot camp.

Matt said it was just like his

brother to go along with something

like that.

“It wasn’t like he would be the

one who would say, ‘let’s go do

this or that’ but he would be the

first one to get involved if some

else had the idea.”

“He would have the two parrots

on his shoulder, good and

bad, and he would just listen to

the bad one every time.”

In Timaru, he gave himself the

fateful name ‘Ruckus’, a combination

of his first and last names,

Mrs Tucker thinks.

During the court case, the

Crown alleged Carroll had

believed Marcus, because of

his nickname, was involved in

a gunpoint robbery of a drug

dealer in March, resulting in

$10,000 drugs being taken.

Carroll was tasked to teach

him a lesson. But the Crown said

it was a case of mistaken identity.

Marcus had been using fake

$100 notes to pay for methamphetamine

but was not related to

the March robbery.

Mrs Tucker said when he was

about 15 or 16, he started to

drink. But she believes he hadn’t

started to use harder drugs like

methamphetamine.

In 1996, after his stint on Great

Barrier Island, he rejoined the

family, which had moved back to

Christchurch and were living in

Sydenham.

But the downward spiral was

already happening.

Said his sister Belinda Ross:

YOUNG:

Marcus

Tucker at his

grandfather’s

place in

Halswell in

the early 80s.

“He just started hanging out with

the wrong crowd. He was looking

for a connection with other,

like-minded people who had

things in common.”

He was in and out of jail

numerous times, usually for

drug and dishonesty offences,

including breaching hire purchase

rules, cheque fraud and

drink-driving while his licence

was suspended.

He would use methamphetamine

and synthetic drugs.

There were times I would tell

him to settle down, that caused a

few arguments, sometimes in the

middle of the street,” said Matt.

In 2015, Marcus wrote to Matt

from jail, saying he was remorseful

for the times he had lashed

out at Matt for telling him to

slow down on the drugs.

In the weeks leading up to his

death, Matt had confronted his

brother about his use of synthetic

cannabis, a habit he had

developed while in prison during

2013.

“He would get quite spaced out

by it. I told him to stop taking

that f*****g s**t, it’s pathetic,” he

said.

Matt said Marcus would sometimes

forget he had purchased

drugs after a serious head injury

he sustained in Dunedin at the

hands of a gang member.

Marcus was dancing with the

man’s girlfriend, which he took

exception to and smashed him

in the eye with a large rock from

behind. Marcus underwent facial

reconstructive surgery.

Matt last saw his brother about

a week before he was battered to

death at a Bishopdale property.

Matt said: “See you later bro.

Watch out, there is something

happening in Christchurch at the

moment.”

Two detectives arrived on his

doorstep to give him the bad

news.

He then called his parents, his

mother who lives in Blenheim,

and father in Christchurch.

Said Mrs Tucker: “He (Matt)

called me saying ‘mum it’s Marcus,

mum it’s Marcus, mum it’s

Marcus, and it is not good’. I said

‘it’s okay, I am on my way’.”

The following day they went to

the morgue.

At the morgue, Matt said: “I

just said ‘rest in peace bro, those

that did this to you will live in

hell’.”

Until she saw his body, she did

not believe he was dead, said Mrs

Tucker.

“I was begging him two weeks

before his murder to sort his s**t

out for his kids . . . he just said

‘yeah, yeah, yeah. It’s all good

mum’.”

Marcus had three children

to three different women. The

first, Caleb, was born on his 18th

birthday.

“I told him ‘you don’t know

what you are in for’, but he was

excited about his son,” said Mrs

Tucker.

Pero’s former company after $2.2m

• By Hamish Fletcher

MIKE PERO Mortgages has

been given the green light to

pursue its founder and namesake

for $2.2 million that he overpaid

himself at their jointly-owned

real estate business.

The move is the latest in a

long-running legal dispute between

Mike Pero (right) and the

mortgage broking firm that still

bears his name, the NZ Herald

reported this week.

While the Christchurch-based

entrepreneur no longer has a

stake in that business, both are

shareholders of Mike Pero Real

Estate.

Mr Pero is the chief executive

of that nationwide real estate

network and last year was found

by a High Court judge to have

given himself a pay rise without

his co-owner’s approval.

The real estate boss, according

to the judge, increased his salary

from $200,000 to $340,000

a year and also authorised an

additional “brand ambassador”

payment to himself of $125,000

per annum.

Mr Pero and another company

he controls was ordered to pay

back all money they received in

excess of $200,000 a year.

That was later calculated as

being $2.179 million. As of last

month, none of it has been paid

back.

Mike Pero Mortgages recently

applied to the High Court to

bring legal action on behalf of

the real estate business to recover

the funds.

Mr Pero’s lawyer told Justice

Sarah Katz, at a hearing last

month, that the mortgages business

was likely contemplating

bankruptcy moves against his

client and liquidation proceedings

against his company.

However, Mike Pero Mortgages’

lawyer said that enforcement

action could also include

charging orders and sales orders

against Mr Pero’s assets.

Liquidation or bankruptcy

proceedings were only two of

many available options, he said.

Mr Pero’s lawyer said that any

bankruptcy action that the real

estate business took against his

client would bring considerable

negative publicity and damage to

its brand.

Mike Pero Mortgages director

Sherman Ma said in an affidavit

to the court that he believed the

real estate business could still

thrive without its namesake.

“In Mr Ma’s view, MPRE has

reached a level of development

such that it could continue to be

successful, and could transcend

its connection with Mr Pero,

should that become necessary,”

Justice Katz said. The judge said

the costs of enforcement action

would be low – relative to the

amount at stake – and that the

real estate business was not in a

position to pursue proceedings

itself because Pero was a director

and opposed such a course.

Granting Mike Pero Mortgages’

application would restore the

usual creditor/debtor dynamic

that would exist if Pero was not

on the real estate firm’s board.

“Any discussions regarding

recovery of the judgment

sum can take place against the

background that if a reasonable

resolution cannot be reached,

MPRE is in a position to take

or continue with enforcement

action. It is in MPRE’s interests

that the full range of recovery

options are available to it, including

enforcement action against

Mr Pero and [his company],”

Justice Katz said.

She gave Mike Pero Mortgages

leave to take enforcement action

on behalf of the real estate business

against Pero and his firm.

Mr Pero in a statement to the

NZ Herald said: “This is an issue

between the two shareholders

of Mike Pero Real Estate Ltd –

Sherman Ma and me, and relates

primarily to historical issues.

“It has nothing to do with the

company’s (MPRE) trading,

which remains strong nor the

company’s day-to-day activities,

which continue to go from

strength to strength.

“We currently have our own

Shareholder’s Dispute Resolution

process in play to prevent future

litigation and I remain hopeful

that this issue will be resolved to

the satisfaction of both parties,”

he said. A spokesperson for Mike

Pero Mortgages said: “The Mike

Pero Group looks forward to

quickly resolving this matter and

to continue providing exceptional

service to its valued customers.”

In an email to Bolton Ave

homeowner Kim Mehlhopt,

city council head of resource

consents John Higgins said one

option could be to “re-site” the

house on her property as part of

her EQC repairs.

Her home may need to be

lifted and a new foundation put

down as part of those repairs.

They expect, hey, just move

your house,” Ms Mehlhopt said.

In September, The Star

revealed JSJ Investments was

building townhouses next door

to Ms Mehlhopt’s home of 15

years – the garage less than a

metre away.

She said the development

will devalue her home, cost her

privacy, and the street’s family

orientated appeal. But under

the District Plan, zoning for the

development is compliant.

The city council has met with

JSJ Investments director Nick

Johnston to discuss how the

development could be altered to

make it better for Ms Mehlhopt.

“As the development in question

is consented and largely

constructed, there is little that

can be easily changed, or the

council can require be changed,

in terms of the built form of that

development,” a city council

spokeswoman said.

In an email to Ms Mehlhopt,

Mr Higgins said the developer

had agreed to pay for a boundary

fence. But he said access to Ms

Mehlhopt’s property would need

to be granted and her backyard

garden shed would need to be

removed to build the fence.

“How can they grant nonnotifiable

consent when we have

to do things on your neighbour’s

property?” Ms Mehlhopt said.

“At this point, I continue to allow

no access to my property.”

Mr Higgins said in the email

the city council had also discussed

compensation or a possible

buy out with the developer.

But the email said the developer

did not feel the need to pay

compensation because the development

was complaint, and he

wanted to see how the units sold

before offering to buy her out.

Ms Mehlhopt said she kept

being told little could be done

because the development was

too advanced. She contacted a

lawyer this week.

There’s no benefit to me at

this point.”

The discussions came after city

council staff, Wigram MP Megan

Woods and city councillor

Phil Clearwater visited Ms Mehlhopt

to discuss her concerns

following stories in The Star.

The issue has been referred to

the District Plan team to consider

any future changes to it.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Attacked teen

thought he

would drown

•From page 1

Then in an appalling move,

some in the group urged the others

to drown him.

“We are unsure how long he

was underwater

for,” said Senior

Sergeant Stills.

“At one stage

and he believed

he was going to

be drowned.”

The teenager

eventually broke

free and attempted

to run home.

The teenager’s mother, who did

not want to be named, said he

collapsed near their house and

caught the attention of the neighbour’s

who brought him home.

“I didn’t recognise him, I

thought ‘who the hell are you’,”

she said.

“He couldn’t talk and his

mouth was full of blood.”

They called 111 and he was

Study shows quarter acre Kiwi dream

• By Bridget Rutherford

PLANS TO make inner

Christchurch suburbs more

populated have hit a stumbling

block – people don’t like living

close together.

That is the what new research

looking into living preferences in

the city has found.

Canterbury University transportation

lecturer Diana

Kusumastuti’s paper,

Mixed-use development

in Christchurch, New

Zealand: Do you want to

live there? has just been

published in the Urban

Studies Journal.

It looked at the weight

residents put on buying

a home, and what factors

were more important.

Dr Kusumastuti said the

research found more people were

likely to buy a home in the city’s

outer suburbs because the properties

were larger, quieter, private

and often cheaper.

“From what we saw, people

dislike high density living. An

increase in density reduces the

probability of choosing in either

area.”

It comes as new housing

developments are being built in

Diana

Kusumastuti

the central city, including anchor

project the East Frame, and after

District Plan zone changes were

made to encourage inner city

living.

When Mayor Lianne Dalziel

was re-elected last year, she said

she wanted 20,000 people living

in the central city before 2024.

She was unable to comment on

the research yesterday as

she had not read it.

Dr Kusumastuti said

people did not place much

importance on travel

times to get into the innercity

when buying because

in Christchurch they were

under the “acceptable

amount”.

“It might be 45min to go

to your work compared to

the inner-suburbs. But you have

to pay more for property there.”

The central city, Merivale,

Papanui, Fendalton, Riccarton,

Addington and part of Linwood

were all classed as innersuburban

areas, while the rest

were outer-suburban areas.

The study used the responses

from 141 people through an

online survey. Respondents were

asked to rate the importance

of 24 “neighbourhood factors”

when deciding to buy a home.

DENSE: New research has found Christchurch people are more likely to buy homes in the outer

suburbs, rather than apartments like these on Park Tce.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Of those, respondents said

the most important factors were

safety, quietness, privacy, the

type of neighbourhood,

location and proneness to

flooding.

Respondents were also asked

to indicate their liking for living

near 12 different activity types.

Of those, most were happy

living near a park, supermarket,

playground or school.

But few wanted to live near

offices, a cinema, a rail station,

clothing shops or bars.

After the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, the existing District

Plans needed to be replaced,

which was done through the

city council and an independent

hearings panel.

As part of the process some

zones were altered to allow

for higher density housing

developments.

Dr Kusumastuti said that had

scared some people who were

living in those suburbs because

larger developments could be

built there.

Somerfield was an example,

with consent being granted to

Multay Developments to build

four two-storey townhouses at 23

Studholme St which residents are

fiercely opposed to.

beats inner city living in Chch

The research said the planning

practices and policies in force

to encourage mixed-use development

may “reduce the attractiveness”

of inner-suburban

properties.

But it said the findings should

not hinder efforts to encourage

mixed-use development living,

and more research needed to

be done on how to make highdensity

living more attractive.

Central Ward city councillor

Deon Swiggs, who lives in

the inner-city, said in foreign

countries, they only went home

to sleep.

“We need to make our city

centre the living room for people

who want to live in the central

city.”

He said the offer of living in

the central city was not as appealing

as it used to be. But with

new apartment blocks and the

East Frame being built, it was

improving, he said.

But Christchurch needed to

cater for everyone and, for some

families, the inner-city was not

appropriate, he said.

In July, a city council survey

found a lot of people did not feel

safe in the central city. To make

it safer, it needed to be more

populated, Cr Swiggs said.

Central City Business Association

manager Paul Lonsdale said

housing in the inner city needed

to be affordable.

“I know the council has had a

wish to have a lot of people living

back in the central city by a

certain time,” he said.

“If the council’s really keen on

making that happen, they have

to do something to assist that

momentum, otherwise it won’t

happen to the degree they want.”

Mr Lonsdale said businesses

would thrive if more people

lived closer, and some could stay

open for longer to cater for that.

With more people, came

increased safety at night, he said.

He said Christchurch had

amenities, such as parks and

open spaces in the central city,

which lessened the need to own

a larger property and backyard.

“Having a quarter acre section

is a life of work.”

Dr Kusumastuti said it would

be difficult to make inner-city

living more

attractive,

because it was

Christchurch

culture to own

homes with

backyards.

But she said

culture could

be changed Paul Lonsdale

because the

current outwards spread of

housing was not sustainable.

That had happened in Auckland,

with many people deciding

to compromise on size because

of a lack of affordability, she

said.

Ways to make inner-city,

mixed-use living more attractive

should be investigated, she said,

which included the design of

the buildings to try and reduce

noise. The research was supported

by the Building Research

Association of New Zealand

through the Building Research

Levy.

East Frame

unsuitable for

dog park plan

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE CENTRAL city’s East

Frame will not get a dog park after

it was considered an unsuitable

location.

It came after the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board

asked Fletcher Living, which is

building the residential development,

if there was provision for a

dog park. The board said it would

cater for people and their pets living

in the central city.

But Otakaro chief executive

Albert Brantley has since written

back saying after speaking with

the city council’s parks and animal

management team, the East

Frame was considered unsuitable.

The team commented that due

to the long, linear nature of the

East Frame reserves, and their

proximity to high density housing,

the area is not considered

appropriate for the siting of a dog

park.”

Otakaro is the Government

agency overseeing anchor projects

like the East Frame.

Mr Brantley said Otakaro

acknowledged a dog park was

needed for the central city, but

a careful site selection process

would need to be done.

Woods, Dalziel

talk rebuild,

mental health

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel met

with new Minister for Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods on Friday to

discuss priorities for the city.

Ms Dalziel said the meeting

was the first of many to come. She

said Dr Woods had a clear understanding

of the issues Christchurch

is facing. “Most importantly,

it was a great start to forming a

successful working partnership

between the new Government and

the city.”

Ms Dalziel said the new Government

had “synergies” with the

city council’s strategic directions,

including accelerating elements of

the post-earthquake recovery not

fully funded previously.

She said the city council was

pleased the Government made a

commitment to hold an inquiry

into the Earthquake Commission,

and to work with the Canterbury

District Health Board and other

agencies to address mental health.

“I also want to pay tribute to

Hon Nicky Wagner, who stepped

into the role just months before

the election. She achieved a lot in

a short time and I wish her well,”

Ms Dalziel said.

STRICTER ROAD maintenance

standards and GPS tracking of

contractors are now being used

to improve the quality of the

city’s roads and footpaths.

The city council has implemented

a new system to monitor

the work of three new contractors

which cover the 1600km of

road around the city.

The contractors, City Care,

Higgins and HEB, took over last

month.

City council road maintenance

manager Mark Pinner

said the new system meant

there were stricter standards for

contractors, the quality of their

work, and how quickly it was

done.

For example, a pothole reported

on a high volume road

would need to be fixed within

a day, while one on a lower volume

route would be within two

days, he said.

If the contractor continued to

fail to meet the time restrictions

imposed across all maintenance

tasks, they would be paid less,

he said.

“If they fail any one item on

any given month, when they do

it the next month, the deduction

occurs.”

standards for maintenance in a bid to improve the condition

of the city’s roads.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

The changes come after city

councillors raised the issue of

falling maintenance levels across

the city earlier this year, saying

it was “failing spectacularly” to

keep the city maintained and

the number of complaints down.

At the time, they said there

was not enough data to show

what was being done and what

was not.

Mr Pinner said the new system

was about making sure the

city council got the best value

for money, and it provided better

services for ratepayers.

He said the new system also

meant the city council could

“All vehicles have GPS trackers

we can see how quickly they’ve

responded. We’ll be upping our

game in terms of auditing,” he

said.

“We’re going to be out in the

field a lot more,

supervising

When ratepayers

called

the city council

to report

something that

needed fixing,

the request

would also go Aaron Keown

directly to the contractor, he

said.

“It’s a big step and, more importantly,

it has improved focus

on our key performance indicators

and performance targets we

set the contractor.”

City councillor Aaron Keown

said the new system was a way

of being “proactive, rather than

reactive”. He said a similar

system was being developed for

Fire rages, homes at risk

Bridge traffic light

saga continues

• By Sarla Donovan

ALL THE light phases at

the problematic St Andrews

Hill intersection could be

resequenced.

The troublespot was the focus

of public consultation

earlier this year, with the

city council presenting

three options to try

and solve some of the

problems.

Though more than

600 submissions were

received, none of the

three options were greenlighted.

Instead, the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

opted in July to trial changing

the Main Rd light phasing.

But the trial never went ahead,

after city council staff decided

reprogramming the Main Rd

left arrow light for city-bound

traffic would create congestion.

The delays that would be

incurred by vehicles on Main Rd

and Ferry Rd would significantly

increase queue lengths in the

peak hours. The benefits to St

Andrews Hill Rd (users) were

minor and did not outweigh

the dis-benefit to the main

traffic flows,” said city council

transport planning and delivery

manager Mike Jacobson.

He said another option to

change the phasing sequence

was being considered and they

would inform the board

about it this month.

It would affect all

phases of the lights

at the Ferry Rd/Main

Rd/Bridle Path Rd

intersection.

But Heathcote Ward

city councillor Sara

Ruth Dyson Templeton said the

original intent of the

board resolution to change the

phasing sequence of the light

was misunderstood, and staff

investigated a timing change

instead.

“I was really disappointed.

I’m hoping that the new

assessment will be quickly

done, so that we can go ahead

with the trial and improve

the movements and safety

of residents coming down St

Andrews Hill onto Bridle Path

Rd.” Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson

said she found the city council’s

response frustrating.

RABBITS ON the Anzac Drive,

New Brighton and Travis Rds

roundabouts could be culled or

caught and released elsewhere.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency is yet to make a decision

on their future.

However, an NZTA spokeswoman

said the highway maintenance

team is putting in place a

rabbit control operation over the

coming weeks.

“In the meantime, we encourage

people to take their safety

responsibilities and that of the

other drivers on this busy road

seriously and concentrate on the

road and safe driving,” she said.

“People should not be venturing

on to the traffic island for

their own safety and the safety of

other drivers.”

About 20 black rabbits

have been spotted at the busy

roundabouts.

Some motorists posted their

concerns on the People’s Independent

Republic of New Brighton

Facebook page about people

wanting to view the rabbits.

The concerns raised were about

motorists driving slowly to look

at them and others parking up

and crossing the road with children

to get to the roundabouts.

BUNNIES: Several options are being considered to deal with

the rabbits on some of the city’s roundabouts.

Transport for Christchurch

posted a video on its Facebook

page of the rabbits with a safety

message.

“It is not a good idea to take

(children) across the road onto

the roundabout,” the post said.

“We all know how unpredictable

young children can be when

over-excited, this could also

endanger the rabbits and scare

them into running on to the

road. This is a state highway and

heavily used by large trucks.”

For the team, it is more fun than work,

and all say they love seeing the end

results, along with the clients’ reactions.

Six weeks ago, the business

shifted from Fitzgerald

Avenue to 413 Tuam Street,

(on the corner of Saxon St)

where many of their glass

works are displayed in a

‘real life’ setting in the new

showroom that has been set

up like a home.

You can browse round the

showroom and get ideas, and

at the same time, watch the

glass and work being crafted

in the workshop.

The possibilities for incorporating glass

into the home are endless,” Alona says.

“Clients can have imagery such as

photos put on to the glass. This is

printed on, so it’s permanent. Or they

can come up with any design they

desire, and we will produce it for them.

For painted glass we use Resene paints,

which are mixed by Resene in the

client’s choice of colour. AJ Creative

Glass and Resene both give a 10-year

warranty on their products.

“Clients have control of their design

from start to finish,” Alona says, “and we

encourage that, as it is their home and

you should love what

you live with.”

The glass items

can be shipped

anywhere across New

Zealand, with the

company also having

facilities in Auckland

for measure and

installation.

“We are now looking

at more avenues for

using glass in the

home. For example,

we are upcycling furniture by adding

painted and sandblasted glass to items

and bringing them back to life.”

To see many of the ways glass can

be used creatively, call into their new

Stopping

fire on

the ice

• By Andrew King

SPECIALIST FIRE investigator

Mark Thomas has always wanted

to go to Antarctica.

Now, three months before he

retires, he will step foot on the

frozen continent to evaluate

fire protection, suppression and

emergency evacuation plans at

Scott Base.

Antarctica New Zealand has

requested the inspection to make

sure it is up to the same standard

as regulations in New Zealand,

Mr Thomas said.

The Christchurch investigator,

along with Fire and Emergency

New Zealand senior fire engineer

Paul Richards and a representative

from the fire protection industry,

will spend seven days on

the ice looking at ways to improve

evacuation plans and how fires

are dealt with.

“It is an interesting place with

some unique challenges. Depending

on the time of the year, you

can’t just have people running

outside. Sometimes the weather

out there is more dangerous than

the fire,” Mr Thomas said.

Punch costs Canty prop $10,000

• By Rob Kidd

A PROMISING Canterbury

rugby player and former

weightlifting world champion

has been ordered to pay a

student $10,000 after a brawl.

Joel Nikoli Hintz, 21, pleaded

guilty to a charge of injuring by

unlawful act when he appeared

before the Dunedin District

Court yesterday.

In August, the big front-rower

was named in the Canterbury

squad which successfully

defended the Ranfurly Shield in

two pre-season games against

Wanganui and Mid-Canterbury.

He played for the champion

Hawkins Trophy Lincoln

University side.

But hanging over him during

those matches was the prospect

of a conviction that could limit

his future sporting endeavours.

On April 4, Hintz and friends

went to Dunedin as part of their

course at Lincoln University.

They were socialising at a

student party in Queen St.

The defendant saw two men

wrestling in the backyard of the

property.

‘’Without warning he

punched the victim once in

the mouth with a closed fist,’’ a

police summary said.

IN COURT: Canterbury prop Joel Hintz has been ordered to

pay $10,000 after injuring a man at a student party. ​

Counsel Anne Stevens said

her client had not attacked the

man completely out of the blue,

as court documents suggested.

‘’He genuinely thought he

was helping someone, but he

misread the situation,’’ she said.

Hintz told police he thought

the men were fighting, and as

he tried to separate them, the

victim threw a punch at him to

which he reacted.

However, the injured man

denied that was the case.

The victim – an Australian

man who was in the country

studying, and also played rugby

– suffered damage to an incisor

tooth, which caused the tooth

to die.

He required a titanium

implant and a false tooth to be

fitted, Sergeant Chris George

said.

The estimated cost of the

dental work was $12,000.

The figure surprised Mrs

Stevens, who had previously

been informed of a smaller sum.

A final cost would only be

known in March next year, the

court heard.

Judge John Macdonald first

indicated the sentencing should

be adjourned for the issue to be

clarified but was later persuaded

to continue.

Mrs Stevens said Hintz had

$5000 available for the victim

but could borrow more.

He would suffer significantly

with a conviction on his record,

she said, through the inevitable

hurdles it would place for

overseas travel.

As well as rugby, Hintz

had also tasted success in

weightlifting when he went

to the world championships

in Johannesburg in 2014 as a

teenager.

He blitzed the competition

and set a record in his weight

class, according to reports at the

time.

Judge Macdonald

acknowledged the defendant

was ‘’a man of promise’’ and the

conviction was the first blemish

on his record.

Hintz was ordered to pay the

victim $10,000 (half now, half in

a month) as well as court costs

of $130.

TWO FORMER New Brighton

players could face each other on

the international rugby stage.

Phil Burleigh has been named

in the wider Scotland squad

while his good mate Ryan

Crotty has made the All Black

centre position his own.

The duo spent plenty of time

together growing up, playing

through the grades at New

Brighton and in the same first

XV side at Shirley Boys’ High

during the 2004 and 2005

seasons.

FINGERS CROSSED: Wayne

Burleigh (left) and Steve

Crotty are hoping their sons

are selected to play each

other in the end of year test

in Scotland.

Now there is a chance they

could line up against each

other during the end of year

tour when the All Blacks play

Scotland on November 18 at

Murrayfield.

In another New Brighton

connection, Kieron Fonotia

has been selected at centre

for Manu Samoa for the test

against Scotland on Saturday at

Murrayfield.

Coincidentally, Fonotia was

also in the same Shirley first XV

team in 2005 with Burleigh and

Crotty.

The Scottish team has not

yet been named but Burleigh

is unlikely to face Fonotia, his

father Wayne Burleigh told The

Star yesterday.

Mr Burleigh said if you told

him five years ago a Crotty

and Burleigh match-up would

happen, he would have said

‘you’re crazy.’

“We are pinching ourselves

about the fact it could happen. It

would be a dream come true if

he could play Ryan,” he said.

Both have played each other

at Super Rugby and provincial

level.

They are really good mates.

After one game, they were still

on the field after half an hour

chatting away,” Mr Burleigh

said. Crotty’s father Steve Crotty

and Mr Burleigh have been

mates for years and even flatted

together “many years ago” on

Marine Pde and also played

rugby in the same New Brighton

team during the 80s.

“It is a special occasion for

both families,” Mr Crotty said.

“We know exactly what they

are going through after hearing

about the selection. We have

been through it and we know

how proud they will be,” he said.

Burleigh joined Edinburgh

Rugby on a two-year deal in

the summer of 2014 from the

Highlanders and extended his

contract in 2016 for another two.

His time spent playing rugby

in Scotland saw him eligible for

selection in the national side.

He does have Scottish heritage

with his great-grandmother

born in Aberdeen, but the

requirement for entry into the

national side cuts off at the

grandparents.

Shirley head of rugby John

Fox said they were all incredibly

talented, but they had to work

for it. “They all put in the hard

work to get to where they are.

They are great examples to the

up-and-coming kids in rugby,”

he said.

Eugenie Sage

Green voice in Government

Eugenie Sage is one of four Green Party MPs to

hold ministerial portfolios in the new Government.​

Bridget Rutherford spoke to her about politics

and living in Diamond Harbour

So you’re the new minister

of conservation, minister of

land information and associate

minister for the environment.

How does that feel?

I’m really delighted and

humbled to have all three. The

election campaign and aftermath

had been quite noisy – there was

a lot we found out at the same

time as the rest of New Zealand

when the Rt. Hon Deputy Prime

Minister Winston Peters announced

it. Then, 10min later,

we had a party teleconference to

actually agree to go into Government.

I was very pleasantly

surprised. Being involved in

negotiations, I was incredibly

proud of the way the Green Party

organised to have that massive

teleconference with delegates to

make the decision we’d be part

of the new Government. There

were a lot of discussions considering

it is historic; it’s the first

time the Greens have been in

Parliament in our 21 years. It was

an intensive effort by all three

parties to examine each other’s

policies, look at where common

ground was, and prioritise.

Did you expect Mr Peters to

make the decision he did?

No, I didn’t know which way it

would go.

What will your new

ministerial positions consist of?

We’ve got a biodiversity crisis

in New Zealand. About 3000

species are at risk of extinction.

We need to do much better in

protecting native plants and

animals and the places they live

so these species can thrive. We’ve

got an international responsibility

to do that because so many

are only here in New Zealand.

Our natural landscapes, wildlife

and special places around

Aotearoa are vitally important

to tourism – they are what bring

tourists here and market our

product overseas. The Green

Party campaigned for a change

of Government to make that

‘100% Pure’ image real – to give

it some integrity. We’ve got a real

responsibility to deliver on that

promise.

Does that bring pressure?

Yes, but it is exciting, though,

because voters have given us a

mandate.

What’s your favourite

animal?

The bellbird I hear at home

because of their call, the kea

and the robust grasshopper in

the Mackenzie Basin. It’s grey

so it’s difficult to see. We’ve got

an amazing insect fauna in New

Zealand that people tend to

overlook. I like the longfin eel

because they’ve got an incredible

life story. They can live to

80-years-old. They live in Te

Waihora/Lake Ellesmere then

they migrate and swim offshore

to Tonga where they spawn and

die. Then the glass eels drift back

through the current and come

back to New Zealand. It is an

astonishing life cycle. We’ve got

a responsibility to protect them,

and that’s another of the priorities,

particularly making sure the

Treaty of Waitangi is properly

implemented through the management

of things like forestry,

fisheries and waterways.

What do you like to do in

your spare time?

I like walking, I do a bit of

mountain biking on back roads,

and even just going from home

in Diamond Harbour around to

Lyttelton, then catching the ferry

back across. I like going up onto

the Port Hills. I used to do a lot

of tramping, which I haven’t had

much time for recently. I love the

high country in the South Island

like the upper Rakaia, Ashburton

Lakes, Arthur’s Pass and Mt

White. They are extraordinary

AT HOME: Eugenie Sage on the Balmacaan Saddle in Hakatere/

Ashburton Lakes. ​

spaces – that’s what makes my

heart sing. For many, it’s walking

along the beach looking out to

sea. Making sure all kids get the

opportunity to grow up with

nature, that’s what inspired me. I

grew up in Auckland, with three

siblings, and we used to play a lot

in the outdoors.

I think back to summer holidays

at Rotorua Lakes and we

were able to go off early and play

and wouldn’t come back until

dinner at night. For families that

can afford it, there’s still that opportunity.

But there are kids who

haven’t been to the beach in New

Zealand, and that’s a tragedy.

What brought you to

Christchurch?

Family commitments – my

partner Richard was down here.

I also studied at Canterbury

University and in Auckland.

When did you first get into

politics?

I was involved in student

politics at university. I edited

Craccum, the student magazine,

at the University of Auckland. I

got into environmental protesting;

I protested against the first

McDonald’s in New Zealand on

Queen St. I did some work for

the precursor to the Department

of Conservation on the West

Coast.

I was exposed to the destruction

of native forest for logging

– these magnificent rimu forests

near Hokitika. I was just in

tears wandering through these

areas, seeing nature’s cathedral

being utterly trashed. I worked

for Forest and Bird between the

mid-1990s through to 2010 at the

time of the Timberlands beech

logging scheme. A Labour Government

stopped the scheme and

transferred the land to DOC and

it has been invaluable since. It

just showed the power of public

mobilisation to protect our rain

forest.

What are you most proud of?

That and the work for Forest

and Bird using the Resource

Management Act to have

stronger controls on indigenous

vegetation clearance and the

work on tenure reviews.

What were you doing before

you got into politics?

I did a law and history degree

at Auckland, and then studied

journalism at Canterbury University.

The law degree has been

really useful in not being scared

of legislation.

What do you think of Prime

Minister Jacinda Ardern?

Jacinda Ardern will be an outstanding

prime minister through

her leadership skills, analytical

skills and her empathy. It’s totally

genuine.

Why did you move to

Diamond Harbour?

When I stood for Environment

Canterbury, I said I would

move in if elected. In 2010, as it

was coming up to elections, the

former Minister for the Environment

Nick Smith and Local

Government Minister Rodney

Hide decided to axe 14 elected

councillors and installed commissioners.

The only time I have

felt welcome in ECan since then

was when the people occupied

the building in September. That’s

a priority, restoring democracy.

What do you like about living

there?

It’s on the base of Mt Herbert,

and being in the harbour you’re

basically looking across to dramatic

cliffs. It’s our volcanic heritage.

And it’s the people in the

community, they support each

other. It’s the same in Lyttelton.

Do you have any pets?

I used to have two cats, but

that was about 10 years ago. Living

in a place with bellbirds and

kereru, I appreciate seeing and

hearing them.

CPC-led China Offers Compass for

Bridging Global Governance Deficit

The Communist Party of China (CPC) has held its most

important meeting in five years to chart the future course of

the country at a time when the world is beset with challenges

and disorder. Globalization has been facing hurdles while

protectionism and populism are rising. Nearly a decade after the

2008 global financial crisis, the world economy is still grappling

with uncertain long-term outlooks. Global confidence in a

strong future growth has yet to find a solid foundation.

of any target to double GDP will ensure the country can focus

on implementing its new development concepts of innovation,

coordination, greening, opening up and inclusiveness. To

restructure its economy for better quality growth, China has

introduced a series of supply-side structural reform measures.

They are reducing excess inventories, cutting overcapacity,

deleveraging, lowering costs for businesses, and streamlining

bureaucracy.

capacity of nations so that they have the fundamentals to

grow their economies. Most of the countries along the Belt

and Road have significant development need -- electricity and

power, transport infrastructure, IT connectivity, etc. -- which

China can contribute greatly to fulfilling. The Belt and Road

Initiative also helps safeguard regional peace. It is one of China’s

tools to help eradicate the root causes of terrorism and other

extremist elements and build a safer world. As Xi has reiterated,

development holds the master key to solving all problems. One

should be counting all the benefits of stability, with less tension,

less crises and less terrorism.

Improving the post-war global financial system is critical to

promoting global justice and balanced development. In this

regard, China has played a pioneering role, pushing for quota

reforms in the International Monetary Fund and the World

Bank.

Against the backdrop of violence in Iraq and Syria, although

Islamic State militants are losing, lone-wolf attacks have emerged

as the new face of terrorism. The age of pervasive social media

has made it unprecedentedly convenient for extremist groups

to recruit, plot and strike. These symptoms all point to a graver

crisis -- the ever widening global deficit in peace, governance

and development.

A Contrasting Map

In contrast, China,

under the leadership

of the CPC, is trying

to map out a road

leading to a better

world by promoting

not only its own

development but

also that of other

countries. The

commitment has

been reiterated in the report Chinese President Xi Jinping

delivered at the opening of the 19th CPC National Congress in

Beijing.

For Xi, one of the top priorities is to ensure a robust growth

of the Chinese economy, which matters to the rest of the

world as well. Since the reform and opening up, the Chinese

economy has expanded much faster than the rest of the world,

partly due to China’s three-step development strategy aiming

to quadruple the 1980 gross national output by the end of the

20th century. China’s economy grew at an average annual rate of

9.8 percent between 1979 and 2012, dwarfing the global growth

of 2.8 percent in the same period. Over the past decade, China

has been widely regarded as a leading economic locomotive

that has, along with other economic powerhouses, pulled a

lackluster global economy up a steep hill. According to data

released by China’s National Bureau of Statistics, China’s average

contribution to global growth from 2013 to 2016 was about 30

percent, the largest among all countries.

Since 2012, the country has shown greater tolerance of lower

growth rates in the pursuit of a better structure, quality and

efficiency. It lowered the annual GDP growth target from 7.5

percent for 2012-2014 to 6.5 percent this year. Average annual

growth between 2013 and 2016 slowed to 7.2 percent, still much

higher than 2.6 percent average global growth and the 4 percent

growth of developing economies.

China’s economy has been transitioning from a phase of rapid

growth to a stage of high-quality development. This shows that

China will prioritize the quality of development rather than

fast economic expansion. The attitude is in line with the central

leadership’s judgment in 2014 that China’s economy had entered

a “new normal”, featuring medium-high growth rather than fast

growth, upgrading of economic structure and innovation.

Stepping into the new era, China’s principal contradiction is

between unbalanced and inadequate development and the

people’s ever-growing needs for a better life, according to Xi’s

report. Although economic growth at certain level will still be

necessary, freeing itself from any speed constraint will make it

easier for China to balance its development goals. No mention

China’s socialist modernization will be “basically realized”

from 2020 to 2035. As Xi mentioned, from 2035 to the middle

of the century, China will become a modern socialist country

that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced,

harmonious and beautiful. With more focus on quality and

efficiency than on speed, China will march toward those goals

and bring about happiness to the people, and rejuvenation for

the Chinese nation.

The past five years have also witnessed China’s persistent drive to

promote social justice and equality by reducing poverty. China

has lifted an average of 13 million people out of poverty every

year since 2012, according to official data. And over the past

four decades, more than 700 million Chinese have been freed

from poverty, accounting for 70 percent of the global efforts in

the same period.

Overseas, China has reached out to the international community

with a set of proposals on how to better maintain global security

and peace and spur development.

Community of Shared Future

In such a highly interdependent world, where the fates of all

nations, big or small, rich or poor, are tightly intertwined, Xi has

proposed that all nations come together to build a community

of shared future for mankind.

The world has seen China significantly increase its contributions

in global economic governance, international peacekeeping,

climate change, global health, energy security and reshaping

multilateral institutions. Even though its per capita income is not

as high as those of advanced nations, China is already providing

the world with public goods such as sending peacekeepers,

fighting piracy, and sending medical missions to really poor

countries to take care of the people who cannot afford to have

good medical treatment.

China’s active participation in global economic cooperation

and support for open and free global trade has benefited itself

and all other countries. Xi’s report called for efforts to make

economic globalization more open, inclusive and balanced so

that its benefits are shared by all. Against the backdrop of rising

protectionism, China remains committed to promoting global

sustainable development, coming up with benefit-sharing

initiatives and offering more public goods to the world.

Xi’s vision led to the Belt and Road Initiative, which aims to

better connect countries and regions that account for more

than 60 percent of the world’s population and 30 percent of the

global gross domestic product, and to strengthen the industrial

This advertorial page is supported by The Chinese Consulate

In the past five years, China has also steadfastly promoted

peaceful and diplomatic means to solve many of the global

crises like the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue. China is a

staunch supporter of the United Nations (UN) peacekeeping

missions and a provider of international humanitarian relief.

It is the top contributor of UN peacekeepers and the secondlargest

contributor to peacekeeping funds.

The world has also witnessed China’s important leadership role

in climate change. China was one of the first to sign the Paris

Agreement, and has reaffirmed its commitment to fighting

global warming after the United States announced its decision

in June to withdraw from the accord. President Xi said in his

report that China has taken a driver’s seat in international

cooperation on climate change and become an important

participant, contributor, and torchbearer in the global endeavor

for ecological civilization. The country more than met its carbon

emission reduction goals last year, and pledged a package of 3.1

billion U.S. dollars to the South-South Cooperation Fund on

Climate Change for developing countries. China, sticking with

this path, makes it more likely that eventually even the United

States will come back to the consensus on climate change.

Xi once said China’s ongoing reforms have sailed into uncharted

“deep waters” where what is left is mostly the hard nuts to crack.

The situation is the same with the rest of the world, if not worse.

Yet that should not be an excuse to turn back or turn against

each other. Rather, it should be the reason for all nations to join

hands and eliminate the deficit in global governance. As many

foreign leaders and observers have pointed out, China has set an

instructive example in this regard. In these turbulent times, the

19th National Congress of the CPC gives a strong message of

unity, cohesion and determination to fight for peace, sustainable

development and the creation of harmonious world societies. If

a world of shared and sustainable prosperity, fair growth and

balanced power is to ever exist, China will have a leading and

indispensable role in it.

New minster builds regeneration relationships

IT’S BEEN great to have hit

the ground running with my

new ministerial portfolios in

Christchurch.

Last week I met with Mayor

Lianne Dalziel and Government

officials working in the

regeneration effort, which is

helping build a good picture of

where the work is at and what we

can do to get things moving.

The relationship with the

mayors and councils is very

important to me, as it’s crucial

we are working in the same

direction for the good of the city,

and the region.

Briefings from the officials

working in the regeneration

space have helped give me

a better sense of where the

individual projects are at. I’m

very keen to look at how we

can make more progress in the

central city and in other key

areas like the red zone.

That includes how we can

help those still struggling with

insurance claims several years

after the earthquakes, and relooking

at anchor projects that

have stalled like the Convention

Centre precinct and the Metro

Sports Facility.

It was also great to see my

colleagues, Prime Minister

Jacinda Ardern and Health

Minister David Clark visiting

Christchurch last week.

Our Government has got

the backs of the people of

Christchurch. While the

previous Government took its

eye off the ball when it came to

the city, the regeneration will be

a true priority for the Labour-led

Government I am part of.

Jacinda gave some great

support to the pupils at Hornby

High School during their

exams, while David visited the

Canterbury District Health

Board to start to rebuild a

relationship that has suffered

though lack of investment to

support Cantabrians.

The progress that has been

made in greater Christchurch

so far has been down to the

hard work of the people, and

they deserve a lot of credit for

it. I appreciate that some of the

issues still facing the region

are complex, but I’m up for the

challenge.

With everyone working

together, I’m looking forward to

achieving some great things for

greater Christchurch.

•Megan Woods is the Minister

of Greater Christchurch

Regeneration

Less than a month after

the Captain Robert Falcon

Scott statue was reinstalled,

vandals snapped

off his walking pole

Betty Campion – What is

wrong with these people who do

this? What pleasure do they get

out of it? They need putting in

stocks in the square and let people

throw rotten food at them.

Bev Collins – Mindless

vandalism, this is the new generation

we are bringing into this

world. No respect for anything

or anyone, must have lovely

parents, not.

Jan Driscoll – We really do

have some delightful people in

Christchurch who take delight

in spoiling things for most of us.

Shame.

David Simons – Even if

they caught who did it, nothing

would happen to them.

Jan Lowe – I find it very sad

as it’s been a long road for all of

us living in Christchurch trying

to rebuild and when something

is destroyed out of malice it’s

heart-breaking.

BUNNIES: NZTA is looking at options to deal with the rabbits

on the Anzac Drive, New Brighton and Travis Rds roundabouts.

Maggie Mariner – I feel so

sad to hear this. Getting part of

our heritage restored was so important.

Pity that vandals have

no respect.

Barbara Moseley – Wonder

if the scum who do the likes of

this mindless vandalism ever

read these comments of what

decent people think of their actions?

Probably can’t read.

Kevin N Anette

Sunderland – Find them,

get the pole and whack their

backsides. In public.

Graeme Brown – I bet the

morons that did this do not even

know who he was.

Pauline Handley – Send

the offenders to Antarctica for a

season and put them to work out

in the freezing terrain then they

might understand what Scott

had that pole for.

Carrie-ann Heigold – Why

do people do this . . . so disrespectful!

Rabbits on the Anzac

Drive, New Brighton and

Travis Rds roundabouts

could be culled or caught

and released elsewhere

Carolyn Neame – The

rabbits aren’t doing anything

wrong, it’s the meatheads who

act like they’ve never seen one

before that are the problem. Cull

them instead.

Lexine Harpur – These rabbits

have been there for years.

There was never a problem prior

to recent publicising of their

existence on the island. I pass

this roundabout on a regular

basis, at no time have I ever seen

“20 black rabbits”. This is down

to media hype and foolish people

who should know better. Don’t

make the rabbits suffer for human

error.

Lisa Murray – Considering

Environment Canterbury has requested

a release of a new strain

of calicivirus to kill wild rabbits,

I dare say they won’t be catching

and releasing these ones.

Barbara White – Sorry,

they’re rabbits. In NZ they’re a

pest . . . If you want rabbits get

some and put them in a cage

in your backyard. These are no

different to the brown ones out

in the fields. Cute, but like the

broom flower – pretty but noxious

all the same. Sorry rabbit

lovers but it’s true.

Kate Alexander – Shouldn’t

the roundabout be removed and

traffic lights put in here before

the high schools start up at QE II

anyway? I like the rabbits but it

would be much safer for all.

Fiona Lean – Leave the

bunnies alone. What about the

pukeko and other birds around

that area that walk over the road?

And yes, the two young kids that

were over on the island yesterday

afternoon at 4.30pm were more

dangerous.

Ailsa Allam – Another little

bit of joy gets taken away. I saw a

cat on the roundabout the other

night. Leave the rabbits alone

they are not hurting anybody.

Kathryn Macgregor – That

rabbit is black, correct me if

I’m wrong, but wild rabbits

aren’t black. Breed ones are like

standard rex etc. Before you cull

make sure you know what breed

it is, somebody’s pet may have

got lost.

Carolyn Fraser – They are

probably there because some

stupid people dumped their

unwanted pets or they may

have come from the red zone.

Relocate.

Cup and Show Week

Guide to racing, agriculture and fashion

With Cup and Show Week just days away,

Sarla Donovan outlines what’s ahead

IT’S THE week where the

country comes to town – and it

all starts this weekend.

The annual New Zealand

Cup and Show Week returns to

Christchurch on Saturday, with

a week of racing, agriculture and

fashion.

The event attracts about

200,000 people every year, and

injects $30 million into the local

economy.

New Zealand Cup and Show

Week begins with Guineas Day

at Riccarton Park on Saturday.

The Al Basti Equiworld New

Zealand 2000 Guineas Day will

see the best three-year-olds race

in the first of two two guineas

races over the carnival.

That’s followed on Tuesday by

the Christchurch Casino New

Zealand Trotting Cup Day at

Addington – a spectacle of fashion,

food and racing.

Musician Mitch James will be

playing on the Lindauer Lawn

Rooftop, while fashionistas compete

for the coveted Best Dressed

Man and Woman titles.

This is also the day when the

country’s top body artists show

off their creativity in the ZM

Body Art competition – always a

crowd favourite.

With the city’s hospitality

sector starting to find its feet

this year, general manager

attractions at ChristchurchNZ

Linda Falwasser is envisaging

people will find their way into

the central city for post-racing

festivities.

The central city has fantastic

new bars and restaurants

opening almost weekly, so it’s

great to have the city heart

beating again.”

Wednesday is ‘Ladies Day’

at Riccarton Park, combining

fabulous fashion with the races.

The three-day Canterbury A &

P Show also opens its gates from

8am on Wednesday, delighting

young and old with annual

rituals like wood-chopping, dog

trials, sheep shearing and the

fabulous grand parade on Friday.

The annual agricultural show

has been held every year since

1862; the first ever show took

place in a paddock near Latimer

Square.

Since making Canterbury

Agricultural Park its home 10

years ago, more than a million

visitors have streamed through

the gates.

Ms Falwasser said the

gumboot-throwing competition

on Friday is a must see, along

with the performance from

award-winning local artist,

Ladi6.

“It’s awesome that Ladi6

is playing on her home turf,

amongst her own community,”

Ms Falwasser said.

Friday, November 17, is the

province’s Anniversary Day

when thousands of Cantabrians

take the opportunity to attend

the A & P Show or pack a picnic

and relax under the trees at

Addington’s Show Day races.

The week’s events round off on

Saturday with the Christchurch

Casino New Zealand Cup and

gravelhouse.com 1000 Guineas

Day at Riccarton Raceway.

What you need to know:

The MetService long range

weather forecast is for light

winds, some cloudy periods

and a high of 16 for the

opening day on Saturday.

From Tuesday onwards, it is

predicting sunny skies and

highs of around 20 deg C.

•To make the most of Cup

and Show Week, organisers

are advising you to be

prepared. Take an umbrella,

some sunscreen and pack

an extra layer of clothing –

just in case.

•Temporary alcohol bans

will be in place around

Addington Raceway on

Tuesday, November 14, from

9am-10pm, and around

Riccarton Racecourse from

7am-midnight on Saturday,

November 18.

Fashion in the Field will also

be a highlight. The day’s fashion

activities will be co-ordinated by

stylist Angela Stone.

“Race day attire is all about

style, sophistication, glamour

and elegance and this is reflected

in the fashion. This is the day to

dress in your finery.”

Big Saturday of Highland Games

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE HORORATA Highland

Games will be held on one

of the most important days

commemorated in modern

history – Armistice Day.

The games, known as one

of the largest Scottish festivals

to take place in the Southern

Hemisphere, will be held at the

Hororata Domain on Saturday.

Event manager Cindy Driscoll

said the Hororata Community

Trust felt strongly about acknowledging

Armistice Day.

She said a lot of people do not

know about its importance and

the games offer a good platform

for people to learn more about it.

“In New Zealand, we put a lot

of focus on Anzac Day and the

other significant events all get

wrapped into that,” Mrs Driscoll

said.

Armistice Day is commemorated

each year to mark the end

of World War 1.

After four years, the war came

to an end with the signing of the

armistice between Germany and

the Allied Powers on November

11, 1918.

On the eleventh hour of the

eleventh day of the eleventh

month, the guns fell silent.

The opening of the Hororata

Highland Games has been

brought forward with a remembrance

of the day to be held

before the chieftain’s welcoming

ceremony.

It is to be led by the Hororata-

Malvern branch of the Christchurch

RSA with a bugler playing

the Last Post.

More than 60 children from

Hororata, Glentunnel, Sheffield,

Springfield and Kirwee primary

schools will perform a kapa haka

as part of the ceremony.

Selwyn MP Amy Adams has

been named chieftain for the

games.

Ms Adams will be the first

woman chieftain.

The event was created in 2011

from the community’s desire

to take charge of its own future

following the devastation suffered

during the Canterbury

earthquakes.

This year marks the seventh

annual running of the event.

It attracts more than 500

competitors who will compete

in highland dancing, piping and

drumming, tug of war, highland

spin, small bore shooting,

amateur heavy athletics and the

Oceania heavyweight championship.

Mrs Driscoll said pre-sales for

the games are well up on previous

years, competition numbers

are at capacity and more than

200 volunteers will be involved.

A record crowd of 10,000 attended

the games last year.

QUESTION

My garden has a hedge of olive trees. Last year I harvested some of the olive fruits and processed them.

They were tasty but very small. What can I do to make the olive fruit fleshier?

Today’s winning question came from Maree. Congratulations!

ANSWER

In a perfect olive season (e.g early rainfall followed by a hot,

dry, late summer then an early autumn), it is possible your

olives may be marginally larger. But the answer to the size

of olives lies in the selection of a particular variety. If your olives fruit

heavily and regularly, then do retain the existing trees regardless

of the size of the fruit. Not all olive varieties crop well in differing

parts of New Zealand. Therefore, there is no guarantee that

known larger fruiting olive varieties will produce heavy crops in

your area anyway. Talk to other olive growers in your local area

and/or experiment with a few additional trees of other varieties.

Remember, fertilising your trees will not produce larger fruit,

rather an enormous amount of vegetative growth.

Hedging your bets

• By Sue Witteman

I HAVE many favourite things, but

near the top of my list would be the

hedge.

It is one of the most useful

horticultural things you can plant

for not only does it divide your

garden neatly, it also provides

sanctuary for bird and beast, acts

as a windbreak, provides privacy,

produces fruit, flower or foliage

for floral work, and adds a colour

dollop of green, red, grey or purple

to your landscape.

I have, however, often noticed

an initial reluctance to the idea of

having hedges as there is the belief

they are a huge amount of work.

True you have to plant them, and

true you have to look after them, as

you do with any plant, but they give

back so much more than they ask

of you.

Apart from trees, they are the

most important structural element

you can have in your garden and

they just grow better with time,

adding an elegance that is hard to

achieve any other way.

Begin with ground preparation.

As is often the case with gardening,

it’s the effort you put into the

‘unseen’ that can make all the

difference to the final outcome. To

avoid losing money on a sad little

hedge that never got going, set

aside a realistic amount of time to

do it – then double how long you

think it will take. By doing this

you minimise the taking of short

cuts and the building of possible

resentment.

Sort out where the hedge is going

to go – use string lines or dazzle to

get this right – and spray the area

if needed (you may have to do this

more than once). It really pays to

get the soil as weed-free as possible,

particularly in the case of perennial

weeds, as the hedge is going to

be there for a long time and it

gets progressively harder to weed

amongst it. And then start digging.

INTRICATE: Layers of escallonia and buxus hedging

add structure to a formal area. The cones are variegated

buxus.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

HOW TO COOK BARBECUE

GRILLED BUTTERFLIED

WHOLE CHICKEN

Ingredients

1 whole butterflied chicken

1 to taste salt & freshly ground

pepper

Barbecue sauce

Directions

Preheat grill to medium. Get

surface temperature to about 200

deg C. Clean and oil well. Clean

the chicken if you desire and pat

dry.

Cut the backbone out of the

chicken with sharp kitchen

scissors. You could use a knife,

but the scissors are much safer

and work great.

With a large knife, give the

breastbone a large nick in the

front of the chicken to help the

bird lay flat.

Rinse the inside of the bird out,

trim any loose fat and extra skin.

Pat dry again. Give the bird a

good sprinkle of salt and pepper.

You could use any seasoning you

want here.

Place skin down on the grill.

Flip after you get a nice browning

on the skin after about 12-15min.

Give the chicken a good

brushing of barbecue sauce.

Grill another 3-4min until

the sauce is browning well.

Total grilling on the second side

should take 20-25min.

Let set for 5 minutes then cut

and serve.

ASPARAGUS WITH

AVOCADO SALSA

Ingredients

2 bunches Asparagus

1 Avocado

1 Lemon

1 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

1 Pepper

1⅓ cups Dried cranberries

½ cup Walnuts

¼ cup Parsley

1 to taste Salt & freshly ground

pepper

Directions

To make the salsa, combine

avocado, juice of the lemon, oil,

diced pepper (yellow), dried

cranberries, walnuts (toasted)

and parsley.

Season with salt and pepper

and toss well.

Cook asparagus in plenty of

boiling, salted water for 2min or

until just tender to the bite.

Drain asparagus and arrange

on a serving plate. Scatter salsa

over asparagus to serve.

Theatre/Arts

Cirkopolis more than just a circus

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

CIRKOPOLIS, the theatrical

circus show taking the world by

storm, is to make its New Zealand

debut at the Isaac Theatre Royal

next week.

Canadian-based troupe Cirque

Éloize has stepped away from its

traditional roots of pure circus

to blend a dazzling mixture of

theatre and dance into its highlyacclaimed

show.

Set in a dull metropolis-themed

factory, small glimpses of colour

slowly begin to seep through as

artists break away from monotony

before the show bursts into a

sparkling party. The first artist to

expose a flash of colour is Rosita

Hendry when she removes her

grey coat revealing a red dress.

“Gradually. we see a glimpse of

colour and by the end of the show

everybody is completely broken

out of this structured world . . .

it is quite fun to have that transition,”

she said.

Audiences will see Hendry, 27,

perform one of her specialities –

the cyr wheel.

The only Kiwi artist to perform

in the show, she grew up in Auckland

and is the eldest of seven

children.

Hendry describes the cast as

“like a little family”; a multicultural

one with performers from

countries including Canada,

England and Japan.

“We have a common language

and we all know circus,” she said.

Hendry said she had not come

across a lot of Kiwis in her time

travelling overseas and she is

fortunate to have made it where

she is.

The tour of Cirkopolis has already

taken her around the world

to Paris, London, Australia and

Germany.

Training to become a performer

has been a lifelong process

for Hendry who first started gymnastics

when she was four before

moving into dance and music.

Following her schooling, she

moved to Australia to train at

DAZZLING:

The magic of

Cirkopolis will

be brought

to life at the

Isaac Theatre

Royal from

Tuesday to

Sunday.

the National Institute of Circus

Arts where she graduated with a

Diploma in Circus Arts.

She then moved to Canada to

train at Ecole Nationale de Cirque

where she graduated earlier this

year as a specialist in aerial rope

with a minor in cyr wheel.

Hendry said she is excited to

travel to Christchurch, having

only been here a few times for

gymnastics competitions.

She said she is hoping to run

workshops for the circus community

while she is here as a way of

giving back to the friends she had

made in the city.

Tuesday to Sunday at the

Isaac Theatre Royal. To book

Fire rages, homes at risk

Actress opens up about eating disorder

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

JANE LEONARD was 13-yearsold

when she first started

comparing her body weight to

girls her own age.

Trained in ballet from a young

age, she was startled to notice her

body maturing earlier than the

other dancers in her class.

“Ballet, as you know, you want

to be slim and tiny . . . I was

always struggling with the fact

I was a lot bigger than the other

girls. I think that may have triggered

something in my mind,”

she said.

The Riccarton resident, now

24, would often find herself looking

in the mirror only to see a

magnified, large version staring

back.

Before long, Leonard’s body

dysmorphia escalated and she

found herself diagnosed with

bulimia – a serious eating disorder

characterised by binge eating

followed by purging.

A long journey of intuitive

eating saw Leonard clinically

overcome her battle by the age

of 16.

But now Leonard, an emerging

performer in the city’s theatre

scene, is sharing her story in a

bid to make others aware they

are not alone in their struggle

with eating disorders.

Leonard’s blog, Haere Mai Apple

Pie, details her journey and

how she overcame her eating

disorder.

In a metaphoric style,

Leonard describes her

own mind as a busy

household filled

with characters

including

depression

– Dee-Dee

for short

– Happy

Happiness,

and Evelyn

Eating Disorder.

In Leonard’s

story, Evelyn appears

as a beautiful and

perfect individual

looking to rent.

But following

her move into

the metaphoric

household,

she negatively

changes its

character

before

Leonard kicks

her out.

Leonard

said there

needs to

be a platform where it was okay

to talk about mental health,

particularly for performing

artists.

“All mental disorders

are really common

among

performing artists,

but especially

in musical theatre . .

. that kind of cookiecutter,

fairy

tale image, that is often

what an audience member

wants to see. They

want to see perfection,”

she said.

Leonard

feels strongly

about letting

young girls

know it is

okay to be a

performer

and have

curves and

muscles.

Since posting

her blog, Leonard said she’s

had a positive response and has

inspired others to share their

own mental health journeys.

While her career in the arts

has been emotionally and financially

stressful, Leonard said

she has been blessed with the

GIVE BACK: Leonard is now

helping others battle eating

disorders.

opportunities she’s had. “I am

grateful for all the stuff I have

been through because I wouldn’t

be the same if it hadn’t been for

my experiences,” she said.

Leonard will star in the alternating

role of Elphaba in Showbiz

Christchurch’s production of

Wicked in March.

She will also feature in the ensemble

and play the understudy

role of Velma Kelly in The Court

Theatre’s production of Chicago.

For the past year, Leonard has

featured as the face of the promo

images for the show.

“That is also a bit like body

confidence – I am on a poster in

lingerie,” she said.

O Canada – taking in the capital city

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Mike Yardley

I’VE JUST enjoyed my first foray

to Ottawa, Canada, which like

all great capitals, is a weddingcake

city, studded with trafficstopping

statement architecture

and grand patriotic confections.

But don’t assume Ottawa

groans under the stuffy weight

of bureaucracy. She’s incredibly

photogenic, carpeted in green

spaces, with a gregarious spirit.

Interestingly, Queen Victoria

chose Ottawa to be the national

capital, a geographic compromise

to neutralise the competing

rivalries of Montreal and

Toronto for top-dog status.

The inner-core of Ottawa

boasts some strikingly distinctive

neighbourhoods, like Wellington

West, a foodie favourite

crammed with cafes, bakeries

and specialty stores like Emulsify,

where you’ll find more olive

oils and balsamic vinegars than

you can throw a salad at. The

Glebe is another extra-lively

pocket of Ottawa with some signature

specialty stores, like the

24 Hour Bagel Shop.

But your first port of call

should be Justin Trudeau’s joint,

Parliament Hill. The centrepiece

is the gargantuan gothic-revival

building called Centre Block.

This 1865 masterpiece is a showstopper,

with gargoyles, coppertopped

turrets and sweeping

archways. The interior is equally

lavish in a Harry Potter kind of

way.

At the heart of the building is

the soaring Peace Tower. You can

see Canada’s prime minister in

action every day when Parliament

is sitting in the House of

Commons at question time.

Admission is on a first-come,

first-served basis, as are the free

guided tours. You’ll need a ticket

for the tours, which are distributed

across the street from the

Hill Centre daily from 9am. Plus

after dark, the sprawling façade

of Centre Block transforms into

a trippy canvas for the nightly

sound-and-light show, trumpeting

pure Canadian pride.

Like all good capitals, Ottawa

is awash with museums, many

of which are free to enter in

birthday year. If you’re an Arctic

buff, don’t miss the new Canada

Goose Arctic Gallery at the

Museum of Nature. Two cores of

real permafrost are included in

this substantial showcase of the

Arctic region, its diversity and

undeniable global importance.

Shop and nosh at Byward Market,

the city’s venerable mercantile

mecca, founded in the early

19th century. Hello maple syrup!

The market also boasts some

old-school cafes and bakeries,

including Boulangerie Moulin de

Provence. Groaning with sugary

and savoury delights, the bakery

was a hit with President Obama

when he popped in several years

ago. In his honour, an entire

bay is dedicated to the Obama

cookies, which are a perennial

hot-seller.

But, when in Ottawa, sweet

treats don’t get any better than

downing a Beaver Tail. This

signature dish is a sizzling slab

of fried dough, slathered in

decadent toppings like gooey

chocolate and cinnamon. They’re

sinfully good.

I’m a walkover for historic

hotels and Ottawa boasts a star

specimen. The Chateau Laurier

is the toast of the town, built

in French-gothic chateau style

by the Grand Trunk Railway

Company at the dawn of rail’s

golden age more than a century

ago. The hotel was scheduled

to open to much fanfare in late

April, 1912, but the railway boss,

Charles Melville, died on the

Titanic en-route to the grand

opening. He never got to see the

completed masterpiece he had

commissioned. Chateau Laurier

overlooks the Ottawa Locks, a

sequence of steep, step-like locks

that mark the northern end of

the 200km-long Rideau Canal.

Completed in 1832, it’s the oldest

continuously used canal in

North America. Today, it’s a watery

recreational paradise, which

also doubles as the world’s largest

ice-skating rink. Come winter,

8km of the canal is transformed

into a groomed ice rink, roughly

the size of nearly 100 Olympicsized

ice hockey rinks.

A quirky Ottawa diversion is

the vast underground nuclear

bunker. Built during the Cold

War, this subterranean chamber,

spanning four floors, was designed

to house the government

brass in the event of an attack. It

could accommodate 300 people,

alongside a fully functional

radio studio and the Bank of

Canada vault. Now transformed

into a Cold War museum, you

can wander through the facility,

which is packed with chilling

insights into just how grave the

risk of apocalypse was perceived

by Canadian officials. Wherever

you choose to stay in Ottawa, I

locked in my accommodation

through Hotels.com, which was

fast, efficient and packed with

great deals. Hotels.com Rewards

HISTORIC HOTEL: Chateau

Laurier is the toast of Ottawa,

built in French-gothic style

GETTING THERE:

•I booked my domestic

flights in Canada through an

award-winning travel search

engine, Skyscanner New

Zealand (skyscanner.co.nz).

It’s a fast and trustworthy

way to find cheap flights. The

more than 60 million global

travellers using Skyscanner

each month can’t be wrong.

It compares hundreds of

airlines across millions of

routes and is an excellent way

to score the best available

deals, no matter where you

want to go. Skyscanner also

has price-saving features like

‘Price Alerts’ which notify you

when the airfares increase or

decrease. What I particularly

like about Skyscanner is that

when I found the flights I

wanted and clicked to book,

Skyscanner links you directly

to the airline or travel agent

so there’s no hidden charges

or fees. In addition to sharppriced

flights, Skyscanner also

offers accommodation and

vehicle hire deals too. www.

skyscanner.co.nz

gives you one free night after

10 nights booked – which you

can bank for future holidays.

Rewards members and mobile

app users also enjoy exclusive

access to secret prices. I found

the Hotels.com mobile app to be

a simple, fast and secure way to

book your perfect hotel, on the

go.

Since using the Aircycle the swelling

further without pain.”- Richard UK.

World

Diabetes

Day

Tuesday, 14 November

Diabetes is the largest and fastest

growing chronic condition in New

Zealand. 1 Over 240,000 people have been

diagnosed with diabetes in New Zealand

and it is thought there are another

100,000 people with diabetes who are

unaware they have the disease. 1

These figures along with this year’s

World Diabetes Day focus on women

provide a timely reminder for healthcare

professionals to come together and

ensure all patients especially women at

risk of diabetes or living with diabetes

have access to the necessary medicines

and technologies, education and

information to improve their outcomes in

treatment.

Proper injection technique is an

often-forgotten part of the overall

care for people needing to inject their

diabetes medication. To further support

healthcare professionals to work more

closely with their local networks and

improve the management of diabetes

with women, BD has developed a range

of materials detailing the Golden Rules

of Injection Technique to facilitate

discussions with patients on correct

injection technique, including the use of

short 4mm (or 5mm) pen needles. 2

This World Diabetes Day, BD is urging

all healthcare professionals to keep up-todate

with their knowledge and training in

order to provide the best possible care to

those living with diabetes.

The 5 Golden Rules

of injection technique for

people with diabetes

Findings from a worldwide survey on

injection technique reveal that a vast

majority of people reliant on injectable

diabetes medication are not injecting

their medication correctly. 1

The survey was conducted among 13,289

self-injecting people participating from

42 countries. 1 The results were reviewed

and analysed by over 180 diabetes

experts from 54 countries, resulting

in the ‘Golden Rules of Injection

Technique’ being published. These

Golden Rules have been developed to

help people better manage their diabetes,

in consultation with their healthcare

professional. 1

This Diabetes Awareness Month, BD - a

global medical technology company

that is advancing the world of health by

improving medical discovery, diagnostics

and the delivery of care - is highlighting

correct injection technique is just as

$39 90 critical in diabetes care as a person’s

diabetes medication, nutrition and

physical activity.

Here are the 5 Golden Rules developed

by health care professionals to help

people better manage their diabetes and

improve their treatment outcomes: 1

1. Always inject medication into the

healthy fatty layer under your skin,

avoiding the muscle 1

2. 4mm pen needles, inserted at 90

degrees are recommended for all

adults and children 1

3. Inject diabetes medication into areas

on the abdomen, thighs and buttocks 1

4. Check injection sites for lumps and

bumps, and avoid using these areas as

injection sites 1

5. Rotate injection sites correctly. 2

Always consult your healthcare

professional regarding treatment of your

Diabetes.

Research Group

Established in the mid-1980’s, the Lipid and Diabetes Research Group

is involved in both Academic Projects and Pharmaceutical Research

Trials. Research participants attend our purpose-built modern unit

(free-parking provided on-site), near the main hospital campus.

Clinical Professor of Medicine, Russell Scott, an internationallyrenowned

Diabetes and Cholesterol Specialist leads our team of 12

research-trained Doctors, Nurses, Coordinators, Laboratory, and

Administrative staff.

Our research focuses primarily on medicines that are being

developed. Traditionally our emphasis has been cholesterol and diabetic

health, however our extensive experience has enabled us to expand

into other areas of health which are also of current National and

International importance. These include: obesity, heart failure, elderly

health, coronary artery disease, kidney failure, and vaccines.

Although early-stage studies are often less than 3 months, the larger

global studies can run for 5-8 years, providing valuable information

about long-term health effects and safety.

Study participants undergo health check-ups before entering a study,

and are monitored throughout their participation. We communicate

with other health providers about their patient’s involvement in our

studies.

We are always open to hearing from new people who have an interest

in knowing more, or participating in research. All questions welcome!

Wool it for

vulnerable feet

The Wool-it story began in 2012 when

the prospect of a reasonably impromptu

680km walk across the Camino in Spain

was looking like it had potential to be

a month long ‘blister-fest’ for the feet.

Determined to avoid the fate of so many

whose experience is ruined by painful

blisters , Katey Lane discovered that

natural wool wrapped around hotspots

and vulnerable areas would offer the

protection needed to avoid damaged feet.

The benefits of Wool-it became

apparent very quickly as day after

day Katey and her walking partner

encountered Camino pilgrims with

‘broken feet’ - painful blisters, open sores

and pressure areas, while they carried on

without a blister between them.

Noticing a growing interest in blister

prevention from a number of different

sectors, Katey took her brand ‘Wool-it’

to the market. The first sales trip started

in Queenstown where two retailers

purchased the entire stock on Day 1.

Within two weeks there were 50 South

Island retailers on board as pharmacies,

sports shops, outdoor centres, trekking

guides and podiatrists started to embrace

the simplicity and effectiveness of Wool-it.

The healthcare market is steadily

growing with particular interest from

those whose feet are most at risk such as

diabetics, EB sufferers and the elderly. A

lot of pain and suffering can be avoided

by placing Wool-it in strategic locations

where you know you are likely to have a

problem. In a number of instances, Woolit

has enabled clients to participate in

sports and activities that would otherwise

have risked damage to feet.

Podiatrists like the concept of 100%

natural wool being so light, providing a

cushion from pressure on already injured

feet/toes and the means to prevent further

damage. Wool-it also breathes around the

skin while absorbing moisture.

Wool-it doesn’t need scissors or

adhesives. Simply aerate the wool and

place around the hotspot or pack Wool-it

in-between toes, once it felts into your

sock, it stays there until you remove it!

Clients are delighted to tell us how

Wool-it has saved the day on long walks,

playing sport or breaking in new shoes.

“I purchased some wool back in March

as I was taking part in the Oxfam Trail

Walker NZ (I did the 100km walk).

Your wool was a life/foot saver. I used it

for about 90% of the walk and I couldn’t

have finished the walk without it. The wool

made my feet comfortable and they did not

over heat. During at the end of the walk I

only had one blister (where there was no

wool on my feet) and my feet were in pretty

good condition.

I would highly recommend the wool to

anyone participating in the Oxfam Trail

Walk or going on a multi-day hike. My only

regret is that I didn’t have another bag!

Thank you so much!” - Claire B. Auckland

“Recently I purchased your Wool IT

product. It is the most amazing product.

I wish I had known about it when I

competed in the Round Rarotonga 31km

walking race. The feeling is like nothing

I’ve ever experienced before. I’m so glad I

found your product and will be definitely

be purchasing again. Thank you also for the

personal note with my delivery. I felt like

a valued customer not just another order.

Thanks” - Elissa, Christchurch

CHRISTCHURCH GREYHOUNDS

Two Kennel NZ Cup Heat Domination

It was the Dave and Jean

Fahey plus Craig Roberts

show at the Addington

Raceway on Thursday

evening, as between them

they trained four of the five

Christchurch Casino New

Zealand Cup heat winners.

They also had a liberal

sprinkling of heat minor

placings.

It was a mixed bag

of heat results, which

with a couple of notable

exceptions, saw the bulk

of the favoured contenders

making it through to the

next Wednesday’s semifinal

rounds. Actually

owing to a couple of the

NZ Cup prelude qualifiers

filling qualifying positions, plus the stand

down of a qualifier, meant the first six

greyhounds in each heat (one is a reserve)

all advanced.

The very smart Avenger Bale for Craig

Roberts was warmly supported to take out

the first heat and he duly obliged, although

he was given a bit of an early shake up by

his kennelmate Letron James who pinged

straight into the race lead.

Avenger Bale railed underneath Letron

James on the home turn to comfortably

claim the heat in 30.16s by a 4.25 length

margin. Letron James bravely held onto

second a nose in front of the strong

finishing Dave and Jean Fahey prepared

Shreddin’.

TAB Favourite for the Christchurch Casino New

Zealand Cup Avenger Bale with trainer Craig Roberts

The leading trio was followed in by Hard

Questions (Gary Cleeve), Opawa Cheviot

(Steve and Bonnie Evans) and Epic

Dream (Ray Adcock). The seventh placed

runner in this heat, Opawa Bard (Fahey’s),

becomes the first reserve for all four semifinals.

Avenger Bale’s litter and kennelmate

Allen Ablett was just as warmly supported

to win the second heat however he was

out jumped from the traps by Fair Pippa

from the Fahey kennels. This pair then

embarked on drag race for the entire 520m

trip. It was Fair Pippa who used her known

strength to prevail in 30.33 shading Allen

Ablett by a three quarter length margin.

The Auckland Cup title holder He’s All

Power (Fahey’s) was the next to arrive

a further two lengths astern. Coming

in after him was Sader Nation (Cleeve),

Penalty Bale (Roberts) and Opawa Norris

(Robin Wales).

The Fahey’s struck again in the third

heat when they produced the multiple

Group race winner Opawa Shackley fresh

up to deliver a spectacular freewheeling

30.46s victory after jumping from trap five.

It sure was great to see her back on the

track doing what she does best – winning

races. It was also great see the bold return

to the races by Tom Tee for Adcock. He

has had his recent issues and he would

have derived immense benefit from his

outing when finishing 3.5 lengths behind

Opawa Shackley. Rover Bale (Roberts) was

next home, three quarters of length behind

although unfortunately he won’t return

after he copped a stand down. Filling the

remaining qualifying positions from this

heat was Cactus Jack (Fahey’s), Nozzno

Fear (Ashley Bradshaw) and Runway Bono

(Fahey’s).

Robin Wales broke up the two kennel

domination when he produced Opawa

Jimbo to deliver a bold pace making 30.26s

win in the fourth NZ Cup heat. The $36.20

shot jumped smartly from trap eight

which set up his victory. Closing stylishly

on him late was Allen Hadrian for Roberts

and he was gallant when going under by a

three quarter length margin.

Boldly stalking the leading pair

throughout was Crotty for Ashley

Bradshaw and he was rewarded with his

third placing a further six lengths back.

Arriving in behind them was Quistis

Bale (Roberts) then Must Be Rusty (John

McInerney) and sixth placed Mazu

(Fahey’s).

There was a real sensation in this heat

where the defending NZ Cup title holder

American Warrior (Fahey’s) was severely

checked on numerous occasions, which

unfortunately saw him exiting from this

year’s edition.

The fireworks really ignited in the fifth

and final NZ Cup heat. Ride Ain’t Over

(Roberts) and Shantui (Fahey’s) drew

the inside two traps – both have shown

a preference for racing wider out on the

track. So much for that theory - this pair

of classy chasers came away from the traps

fairly humming and they dictated terms

to their heat rivals with a display of sheer

power chasing.

It was all about Ride Ain’t Over as he

drew clear to deliver his potent 29.95s

heat win. Shantui maintained his strong

gallop arriving home five lengths behind

while it was his kennelmate Opawa Timo

who extended nicely during the run home

to wind up just three quarters of a length

back in third.

Filling the remaining qualifying

positions from the final heat was Harry

Fields (Adcock), Panel Beater (Fahey’s)

and Helski Bale (Roberts). Joining all of

those qualifiers from the heats in the semis

are another four greyhounds who were

exempted from the heats owing to their

recent NZ Cup Prelude placings. Dirk Bale

(Roberts), Cosmic Odette (McInerney),

Nature’s Gent (Angela Turnwald) and

Cristiane Cyborg (Hayley Mullane) will be

lining up in those semis on Wednesday.

five computerised scanners,” Nick says.

These days they are servicing hybrid and

even full electric vehicles as well, he says.

Servicing and re-gassing air-conditioning

systems is a specialty at Beach Road Tyre &

Auto Centre, while, as the name suggests,

tyres are a key part of the business. They

carry a huge range of tyres for all makes

and models of cars, including four-wheel

drives, and also do wheel alignments,

which ensure tyres last longer and save fuel.

“If you want it right, see us,” Nick says.

Now that later-model vehicles require

a WOF once every 12 months rather than

every six months, it is important for drivers

to keep an eye on their tyres for wear in

between warrants and have them replaced

if they are getting worn, Nick says.

“We are seeing a lot of very dangerous

tyres, so if you’re unsure how to check them

call in and see us.”

From WOFs to full servicing, and

everything in between, the experienced

team at Beach Road Tyre & Auto does it all.

And as Nick says: “If you’re happy with our

service tell others. If you’re not tell us. We

want to look after our customers.”

Mazda CX-3 refresh

adds to appeal

• By Ross Kiddie

WHEN MAZDA launched

its small sport utility vehicle

in New Zealand in

2015, a fellow motoring

writer and I agreed the

CX-3 was one of the most

significant cars to enter the

market here.

We also both agreed it

was of the most enjoyable

drives of the time.

As history as served to

prove, the CX-3 hasn’t won

the New Zealand Motoring

Writers’ Car of the Year

Award, but to my way of

thinking I can’t understand

why not.

The CX-3 is a seriously

good piece of kit, it stands

out in every area, all combining

to produce a pleasurable

driving experience.

Bang on cue, Mazda

has given it a facelift and

upgrade, and the new

model has got an even

greater grasp on me, I simply

in love the CX-3.

Sure, it isn’t big, but it

is an adequate five-seater

and it is functional. The

rear load space allows for

up to 231-litres of cargo

(1141-litres with the rear

seats folded flat), and even

though the rear seating

area has copped some

criticism for lack of space,

I firmly believe if you are a

young family with a couple

of youngsters in tow, it is

still vastly capable.

The CX-3 has just undergone

a fairly major cosmetic

refresh, most of the

changes are incorporated

into the interior and that

makes you even more at

ease once you are in the

driver’s seat.

There is also the addition

of more functions in the

i-Activesense suite of safety

gear, G-Vectoring control

has been included which

monitors the driver’s steering

and throttle inputs to

promote a safer ride and

greater handling benefits. It

also incorporates emergency

avoidance functions.

The CX-3 also gets

a re-calibration of the

power steering system and

improvements in noise,

vibration and harshness

within the ride.

Together, the changes

make the CX-3 an even

better car without disturbing

the concept which

appeals so much to me,

and my colleague.

There’s also been a realignment

of models; sadly

the fabulous 2-litre diesel

has been dropped, so all

models now are petrol

powered. There’s a GLX,

MAZDA CX-3: Facelift and upgrade for popular SUV.

GSX and GSX with leather

and, as in the test car’s case,

a Limited model which

tops the range at $40,195.

The entry-level model is

listed and $31,395 while,

interestingly, there’s a GSX

model with four-wheeldrive

which comes in at

$37,295.

The range-topper

wouldn’t be the car for me

but I would be tempted by

the non-leather GSX, and

it doesn’t miss out on much

in terms of specification.

• Price – Mazda CX-3

Ltd, $40,195

• Dimensions –

Length, 4275mm;

width, 1765mm;

height, 1535mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1998cc,

109kW, 192Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage –

6.1l/100km

However, the Limited is

there for those who like

leather and all the bells and

whistles, and the CX-3 in

this form is a pampered

drive with its heated seats,

electric everything and all

the safety gear you would

find on the modern SUV.

Part of what makes the

CX-3, and its stablemates,

so special that they have

a traditional driveline,

the engine is a naturallyaspirated

2-litre unit and it

drives through a conventional

six-speed automatic

gearbox. The point I’m

making is that there are

no surprises, you just get

in and a drive it, there are

no quirks or anything that

needs to become familiar, it

is very orthodox.

Mazda claim 109kW and

192Nm from the twincamshaft,

16-valve engine.

Even though peak power

is delivered high in the rev

band at 6000rpm, the point

of maximum torque is low

at 2800rpm. Mazda is a

sheer genius at engineering

engine management

protocols so that the engine

is far from flighty, yet

working solidly the torque

curve which not only initiates

keen acceleration

(0-100km/h in 9sec) but

also miserly fuel usage.

The engine is also rated

with a 6.1-litre per 100km

(46mpg) combined cycle

economy figure which sits

well with the 8l/100km

(36mpg) dash panel

readout during my time

with the car. It also sits

at 4.5l/100km (63mpg)

at 100km/h on the highway,

the engine working

over very relaxed at just

2050rpm.

I took the test car west to

Windwhistle and Terrace

Downs. It cruises quietly

on the highway and there is

solid engine response when

highway overtakes need to

be completed, along with a

satisfying feel beneath the

accelerator.

The CX-3 also handles

purposefully thanks to the

new power steering tuning.

Pushed quickly into a

corner, then CX-3 stays balanced

with minimal body

roll and direct turn-in. The

suspension is a fully independent

type (front struts/

rear multiple link), that

allows freedom of movement

for the wheels, while

firmish spring and damper

rates provide a sporty,

involving sensation. Not

that the suspension compromises

interior comfort,

the CX-3 has all the attributes

which buyers demand

from the modern SUV.

As I’ve alluded to, I’m

greatly taken with the

CX-3, not just because it

is a car which does little

wrong, but I’m buoyed by

the build quality Mazda

in recent years has been

engineering into its entire

model line up.

The company has shifted

the goal posts in terms of

value and driving feel, the

line-up is most certainly

going from strength to

strength.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Making it easier to learn

how to teach English

anywhere in the world

From 2018, Ara will offer the

internationally recognised University of

Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English

to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA)

full-time, part time and through blended

delivery. It will be the only centre in New

Zealand offering the programme in all

three options.

Julie van Dyk, CELTA tutor and

programme leader says graduates of the

Ara course have a high rate of employment

in English language teaching. “Eighty three

percent of students who completed the

course at Ara last year are now working

in the industry, in China, France, New

Zealand, Japan and Hong Kong.”

Van Dyk says CELTA students develop

an understanding of the key principles

and practices of effective English language

teaching. “You’ll teach two different classes

for your assessed teaching practice, with

students from a wide range of language

backgrounds.”

With the choice of three delivery modes,

students can choose the option that best

suits their needs. The fulltime option is a

four-week intensive course, held Monday

to Friday from 9am to 5.30pm, and will

be offered in March and September 2018.

“This option is ideal for people who want

to complete the qualification in the shortest

possible time and move into employment

or go overseas afterwards,” van Dyk says.

The part-time course takes 11 weeks and

comprises 12-15 hours’ face-to-face study

and a minimum of 10 hours’ independent

study each week. It’s held on Saturdays from

9am to 4.30pm, and Tuesday and Thursday

evenings from 5.30pm to 9pm. Van Dyk

says this option is popular with people who

have family or work commitments and who

want to study over a longer period of time.

The blended option combines online selfdirected

study with face-to-face teaching

practice and observations, over 15 weeks.

“This option is ideal if you prefer more

flexible learning, or if you’re based outside

Christchurch,” van Dyk says. “You can

study this course from anywhere in New

Zealand, as you only need to attend on-site

classes at Ara for a part of the course.”

dates and the application process, visit

EIGHT years ago Tom

Alexander sold Jack

Milligan a kart which got

him into motor racing

Now the two longtime

friends are set to

battle for the Toyota 86

Championship. Alexander,

Milligan,

21, found

themselves

duelling at the

front of the

pack in the

opening round

at Pukekohe at

the weekend.

Racing

against

each other

competitively

is somewhat

new to them.

However, their history

together stretches back to

their early teens.

Both drivers began their

racing careers in karts with

Matthew Hamilton at the

Kartsport Canterbury race

track on Carrs Rd.

Milligan, who was 13

at the time, was looking

to purchase his first kart.

Record sprint car field at Ruapuna

SPEEDWAY FANS are

in for a treat on Saturday

night at Ruapuna with a

record 30 entries in the

opening round of the

Hydraulink War of the

Wings Sprintcar Series.

Defending series

champion Jamie Duff of

Christchurch will go in as

favourite. However, last

week at Ruapuna’s season

opener, he had to play

second fiddle to Te Anau’s

Daniel Anderson.

Ruapuna club

president Allan Daly

says the prospects of

an outstanding race

Alexander had been racing

for a few years already and

was looking to move up a

class. This led to Mulligan

buying Alexander’s 100cc

Yamaha kart.

Although the two grew

up racing in different

classes, they developed a

relationship which saw

Mulligan go on to be part

of Alexander’s mechanical

crew during his first season

in the Toyota 86 Championship.

“Jack was still racing

karts at the time and we

needed an extra set of

hands to work on the car,”

said Alexander.

Now the pair will go

wheel to wheel for this

year’s 86 championship

title.

“Before round one, I

knew that Tom was going

to be the guy to beat. He’s

won it before and he’s

always been a good driver,”

said Mulligan.

“It’s going to be a good

battle throughout the

season.”

Alexander – who won

the 86 championship in

2014-15 and is now based

in Auckland – claimed

on Saturday are high,

particularly given the

talent on offer and the

calibre of equipment.

“It’s as good as you will

see anywhere and it’s

amazing that, 10 years

ago, there were just six

entrants for the South

Island championship. The

attraction of the series is

the $100,000 prize and

travel pool,” said Daly.

Another local driver

who will fancy his

chances will be three-time

champion Luke Keegan.

He’s in his second season

Old friends battle it

two wins at the weekend

to leave Pukekohe with the

championship lead. Milligan

is second overall after

a win in the opening race

and a podium finish.

Milligan won the 12-lap

opening race on Saturday

with Alexander in third.

In race two, it was

Alexander’s turn to swarm

through to the lead in

light rain. He was followed

home by Milligan who had

a strong start to move up

the grid after starting in

eighth.

In race three, Alexander

again held off a challenge

from Mulligan. On the

back straight, Milligan

made a bold move to go

around the outside of Alexander,

who held his line

and his lead as Milligan

slid onto the grass and

ended the race in eighth.

The pair will now head

to Taupo for the next

round in early December

where both are expected to

feature at the front.

“Jack proved last year

that he’s got speed. I’d love

possesses a great race

temperament. Keegan is

prepared to wait for opportunities

and, in the frenetic

action which comes with

sprint car racing, that is a

huge asset. Last Saturday,

Keegan timed his run

to perfection coming in

second behind Anderson

in the feature.

The pits will be jam

packed and we have had to

put in an extra heat race to

accommodate the entries.

The time trials, which start

at 6pm, will sort the heat

Cricketers choose their

school over Canterbury

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High’s

top cricketers have been forced

to choose between their school

or Canterbury due to a calendar

logjam caused by next year’s

under-19 Cricket World Cup.

CBHS will aim to defend their

national First XI Cup title in

Palmerston North from December

4-8. In recent years, the tournament

has been held at Lincoln

University, but a change in venue

was needed with the under-19

regional tournament being held

there from December 4-12.

Traditionally, the regional

tournament is held a week after

the First XI Cup tournament,

but its move forward has forced

some students from around

the country to choose between

representing their school or their

province.

CBHS coach Matt Parr says it

was a no-brainer for his students

to quickly decide their priorities

lay with representing school.

Following the regional tournament,

New Zealand Cricket will

select the national team to play

in the under-19 Cricket World

Cup. The ICC requires nations

to name their squads by mid-

December, which is one reason

why the regional tournament was

moved forward.

Due to the double-up, New

Zealand Cricket will now have

selectors at both tournaments,

ensuring no player is disadvantaged

by their choice to represent

their school or region.

CBHS students Louie Chapman

and Mitchell Hay will join

up the with the Canterbury team

following the tournament in

Palmerston North. However, it’s

likely several other CBHS students

would have made the team

as well and their absence will

leave Canterbury under strength.

“We’re probably missing out on

two players that would have been

involved but, at the same time,

it’s a great opportunity to give

an opportunity to a couple of

younger guys,” said Canterbury

Cricket performance squad

coach Dion Ebrahim.

This year’s First XI Cup

title will be contested by CBHS,

HIBS, Palmerston North Boys’

High, Otago Boys’ High, Tauranga

Boys’ College, and Auckland’s

Rosmini College. The under-19

Cricket World Cup takes place

around New Zealand from January

12 to February 8.

Mates meet on course

• By Gordon Findlater

AFTER LOSING to one of his

best mates in the New Zealand

amateur golf championship final

on Sunday, Tom Parker was

quick to get the last laugh on the

pool table.

Parker, 17, took on Wellington’s

Daniel Hiller, 19, in the

36-hole championship final at

Russley. Although it was the first

time they had been paired up on

the golf course over the five-day

championship, they were housemates

all week.

Since 2015, their friendship

has seen Hillier stay with Parker

when he’s playing in Christchurch

while Parker does the same

in Wellington.

Hillier made a fast start on

Sunday as their friendship was

put aside on the course. He recorded

seven birdies and an eagle

through the first 14 holes to

jump to an early seven up lead.

He eventually went on to win 10

holes up with nine to play.

“It was played in really good

spirits. There could be worse

people to see win it I’m sure,”

said Parker.

Their competitive streak didn’t

end there, though. Pool and

table tennis occupy their time off

the course and Parker recorded a

bitter-sweet victory in his garage

before Hiller left for Malaysia to

Championship final.

compete in the Nomura Cup.

“We’re normally pretty even

on the pool table, but I got him

that evening. Maybe he was

sympathetic and gave it to me,”

Parker joked.

After a scratchy start to the

tournament, Parker nailed two

6m-plus putts on the 17th and

18th holes in the final round of

stroke play to finish 32nd, just

allowing him to advance to the

final 32 match play elimination

round.

On his way to the final, Parker

defeated Scott Hellier, James

The Best Kept Secrets

to Selling Your Home

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is

the only impression

No matter how good the interior of your

home looks, buyers have already judged

your home before they walk through the

door. You never have a second chance to

make a first impression. It’s important

to make people feel warm, welcome and

safe as they approach the house. Spruce

up your home’s exterior with inexpensive

shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry

ways are also important. You use it as a

utility space for your coat and keys. But,

when you’re selling, make it welcoming by

putting in a small bench or a vase of freshcut

flowers.

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show

Your house needs to be “show-ready” at

all times – you never know when your

buyer is going to walk through the door.

You have to be available whenever they

want to come see the place and it has to

be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave dishes in

the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out,

the bathrooms sparkling and make sure

there are no dust bunnies in the corners.

It’s a little inconvenient, but it will get your

house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first

You’re not actually selling your house,

you’re selling your kitchen – that’s how

important it is. The benefits of remodeling

your kitchen are endless, and the best part

of it is that you’ll probably get 85% of your

money back. It may be a few thousand

dollars to replace countertops where a

buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking

price if your kitchen looks dated. The

fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates

include painting and new cabinet hardware.

Use a neutral-color paint so you can

present buyers with a blank canvas where

they can start envisioning their own style.

If you have a little money to spend, buy

one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why

one? Because when people see one highend

appliance they think all the rest are

expensive too and it updates the kitchen.

Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of

your house

One of the most important things to

do when selling your house is to depersonalize

it. The more personal stuff in

your house, the less potential buyers can

imagine themselves living there. Get rid

of a third of your stuff – put it in storage.

This includes family photos, memorabilia

collections and personal keepsakes. Staging

simply means arranging your furniture to

best showcase the floor plan and maximize

the use of space.

Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade

Quick fixes before selling always pay off.

Mammoth makeovers, not so much. You

probably won’t get your money back if you

do a huge improvement project before you

put your house on the market. Instead,

do updates that will pay off and get you

top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint

on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy

some inexpensive new ones. Replace door

handles, cabinet hardware, make sure closet

doors are on track, fix leaky faucets and

clean the grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters

You might think a cuddly dog would warm

the hearts of potential buyers, but you’d be

wrong. Not everybody is a dog- or catlover.

Buyers don’t want to walk in your

home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell

the kitty litter box or have tufts of pet hair

stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the

impression that your house is not clean. If

you’re planning an open home don’t leave

your pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field

A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong

real estate agent. Make sure you have an

agent who is totally informed. They must

constantly monitor the multiple listing

service (MLS), know what properties are

going on the market and know the comps

in your neighborhood. Find an agent who

embraces technology – a tech-savvy one

has many tools to get your house sold.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up

Maximize the light in your home. After

location, good light is the one thing that

every buyer cites that they want in a

home. Take down the drapes, clean the

windows, change the lampshades, increase

the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the

bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what

you have to do make your house bright and

cheery – it will make it more sellable.

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets

Storage is something every buyer is looking

for and can never have enough of. Take

half the stuff out of your closets then neatly

organize what’s left in there. Buyers will

snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets

and cabinets clean and tidy.
