Very ill but she couldn’t tell her mum

BIG CHALLENGE: Megan Mckay, 23, will run in the City2Surf with a chronic illness which causes her lungs to reach

about a 50 per cent capacity. (Inset) – Megan with her mum Sharon Mckay before she passed away after a battle with

cancer.

• By Sophie Cornish

WHEN MEGAN Mckay was

diagnosed with a chronic illness,

she couldn’t tell anyone. She

feared her mum, who was dying

of cancer, would find out.

She desperately wanted to

spare her mother Sharon, 58,

the anguish of knowing her

daughter could also die from an

illness.

“I still think about whether

that was the right decision and

I still feel it was the right choice

. . . she was the type of person

that would back me regardless

of what I was doing. Whatever I

did achieve, she would say how

proud she was,” Megan, 23, said.

Sharon battled cancer for 10

years before it claimed her in

June 2016.

Fire restrictions usually come

into force at the start of summer,

but a wet spring delayed the

season.

Said FENZ spokesman Wayne

Hamilton: “The conditions have

reached the point where there

The fire risk in Christchurch is

currently moderate-high.

Mr Hamilton said gas or

to be used without a permit.

83 and chasing burglars

• By Julia Evans

EVERY neighbourhood needs a

guy like Don Dalrymple.

When push comes to shove,

he’s prepared to put his body on

the line – even at 83.

About 3pm on Friday, Mr

Dalrymple went out to the gate

to check his letterbox when he

heard his neighbour’s burglar

alarm ringing from across the

street.

“I wandered along my side

of the road and looked down

the driveway. You could see

the garage door was open,”

said Mr Dalrymple, who is a

Christchurch South Community

Patrol member.

The alarm was absolutely

deafening and I thought

something’s not right.”

That’s when a man riding

a mountain bike and holding

another came down the

driveway.

“I didn’t get a good look at

him, he had something over his

face so you couldn’t see what he

looked like.”

Adrenaline kicked in and

without a second thought, the

the man.

“Pursuing Ms Hickey is not a

and a woman passing by stopped

to help Mr Dalrymple who was

on the ground bleeding.

“I had all the skin taken off my

arm and knees, there was blood

everywhere. But I said don’t

worry about me, call 111 and get

the police here,” he said.

“I’d do it again in a heartbeat.”

Police later caught a 27-yearold

who has been charged with

burglary and unlawfully being

in an enclosed yard.

By chance an off-duty police

officer recovered the bike, which

the offender had discarded, Mr

Dalrymple said.

He also warned people

not sure

about job

• By Sophie Cornish

CITY COUNCIL chief Karleen

Edwards will decide next month

if she will reapply for the job.

Dr Edwards’ five-year fixedterm

contract expires in June.

A city council spokeswoman

said yesterday Dr Edwards

had not yet made a decision on

whether she wants to stay in the

job.

The chief executive position,

which currently pays $402,900,

is appointed by the mayor and

councillors.

“She will be making the decision

about her role by then end

of February, and she will speak

about it then. She is still making

the decision and considering

it,” she said. Dr Edwards is a

psychiatrist turned administrator

who joined city council in 2014.

She was deputy chief executive

of Canterbury District Health

Board from 2001 to 2007.

Before starting at the council,

Dr Edwards held chief executive

Overcoming chronic illness

•From page 1

Megan, who was studying

in Auckland at the time, was

diagnosed with interstitial lung

disease in March 2016 – a lifeshortening

disease which causes

her lungs to work at only 50 per

cent capacity and leads to severe

breathlessness.

Now, three years on, Megan

will fulfil a health goal by taking

part in the Star Media City2Surf

with Les Mills on March 24.

She is sure her mother will be

with her when she takes part in

the 6km event.

“I think they watch over you

and know what you are doing.

She would be extremely happy

I imagine and be proud of

everything I have achieved. I

got a lot of that strength from

watching her deal with the cancer

for so long,” she said.

Megan, who is a fifth year

medical student, transferred

to Otago Medical School at

Christchurch Hospital at the start

of last year.

She had continued studying in

Auckland but became depressed.

Her doctor advised her to do

her own rehabilitation. She has

started walking everyday.

Eventually, Megan told her

friends about her condition.

“When I moved home and

she said.

“I started thinking what is

Fire rages, homes at risk

Future of e-scooters looks bright

Survey result

says they

should stay

• By Julia Evans

MOST PEOPLE in Christchurch

want Lime scooters to stay, a new

survey reveals.

About 8000 people took part in

the survey and just over half

of respondents

had ridden a

Lime.

Three-quarters

of respondents

felt the trial has

had a positive

impact on the

Jake

McLellan

city. Lime users

were more

positive at 93 per

cent than nonusers

at 58 per cent.

Lime has been operating its

electric scooters on a trial basis

since October.

During the first three months

of the trial, more than 400,000

scooter trips were taken, with

more than 100,000 people having

at least one ride.

As part of its assessment of the

trial, the city council conducted

a survey to find out what people

thought about the scooters and

how they were being used.

City council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas said the findings from

the survey will be included in

a report to be presented to the

infrastructure, transport and

environment committee on

February 13.

It will include a

recommendation on whether

Lime should be allowed

to continue operating in

Christchurch.

“People using the scooters

most commonly said they were

using them for trips where they

otherwise might have walked,

but nearly a quarter of all scooter

trips appear to be replacing

vehicle trips,’’ Mr Thomas said.

City council head of planning

and strategic transport David

Griffiths said other electric

scooter companies had

approached the council.

The council has been

contacted by a number of parties

interested in discussing e-scooter

schemes, although no one has

applied for a trading permit and

we haven’t seen any detailed

proposals,” he said.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board deputy

chairman Jake McLellan has also

submitted a notice of motion to

be approved by city council chief

executive Karleen Edwards to

investigate putting a levy on the

scooters.

Lime wants to increase the

number of scooters in the city

to 1500 and Mr McLellan said

a levy of $1 per scooter, per day,

would raise $547,500 for footpath

repairs.

It would increase the budget

by almost 11 per cent, which

is about 1.4km of whole road

resurfacing a year, he said.

Lime currently only pays the

city council a licensing fee of

$136 including gst.

“Lime are a major international

corporation, and it’s important

we make sure they help invest in

the infrastructure their scooters

rely on, like high-quality roads

and footpaths,” he said.

Seventy per cent of respondents

said they feel users are riding

them in a safe and responsible

way. Lime users were more likely

to say that (85 per cent) than nonusers

(56 per cent).

“Lots of people are

encountering people riding

e-scooters on footpaths on a

regular basis. When survey

respondents were asked about

sharing footpaths and other

public spaces with e-scooters, 62

per cent reported feeling fairly or

very safe,’’ Mr Thomas said.

Most respondents (74 per cent)

said shared e-scooters should stay

in Christchurch after the trial,

with users much more likely to

want this (93 per cent) than nonusers

(56 per cent).

Innovative father and son duo

First there was the

castle and now there

is a self-sustainable,

eco-friendly tiny house.

Anan Zaki talks to the

father and son behind

the creations

MAJESTIC: The Chapman Castle was Dennis Chapman and his son Alan’s first project, now

DENNIS CHAPMAN built a

castle overlooking Tai Tapu six

years ago.

Now his son Alan is building a

tiny house, with inspiration from

the castle.

The tiny house in Tai Tapu is

off the grid and self-powered by

solar panels.

The house can generate enough

power to charge an electric car,

which will keep its two residents

self-sustained. It also has a large

thermal mass, which means the

temperature of the building does

not change.

The technological features were

right at home for Dennis, who

made his money in electrical

engineering companies Enatel

and Swichtec. His son is also an

electrical engineer with his own

company Darc Technologies.

“We built the tiny house to see

if we could utilise all the technol-

tiny house that was economically “We didn’t set out to build

accessible to everybody,” Alan a castle. We actually set out to

said.

build a thermally efficient building

that was fully automated,”

Meanwhile, 4km away, the

Chapman Castle takes things on Dennis said.

The family loved the Dunedin

Railway Station’s stone entrance

way and drew inspiration from

that.

“Because it was all stone and

there were slip windows . . . we

decided we needed a theme,”

Dennis said.

From there the idea of a castle

was born. But the castle was no

ordinary castle.

“In the castle, in the middle

of winter we’d have no heating

for a week and the temperature

will only change by two degrees,”

Dennis said.

“To retain heat and store water

in the castle, we’ve got 30,000

litre water tanks – four of them.

Half of them are thermally insulated

so we use those to store heat

to the house.”

The tiny house in comparison

has 3000 litre water tanks.

The Chapman’s hope to take

the building concepts from the

castle into the market to develop

more eco-friendly houses.

The castle also generates

enough electricity to not only

power the itself, but three electric

cars and supply power to the

grid. Other innovations include

translucent light panels instead of

windows in order to prevent heat

escaping the house.

The psychology of that is it

looks like you’re looking at a

window. You’ve got the light

coming through the window,

even at night,” Alan said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

design tiny house after castle

DESIGN: The Chapman Castle is an eco-friendly house.

With modern LED technology,

panel lights are cheaper than

installing windows or skylights.

The heat lost through the windows

costs more than running

LED lights, Dennis said. As both

father and son confessed, the tiny

house is an experiment. Alan

plans to move in to the house

once it is completed in March

and live there for a year.

The experiments we’re doing

here is to prove what’s possible.

Maybe it’s not that cost effective

at the moment, but it will be in

the future,” Dennis said.

The roof is made of foam steel,

which is commonly used in large

commercial buildings like supermarkets,

not homes.

“It has an advantage, it gives

a relatively simple structure to

build and gives really good insulation,”

Dennis said.

“It does have some downsides

we’ve found. It costs somewhat

more than what we expected and

we’re not sure why that was, so

we’re dreaming up new methods

at the moment.”

The house is also movable. After

a year of living and learning

about the tiny house, Alan says

it will be lifted up and moved

to another location – likely as a

family bach.

Alan hopes he can one day sell

the technologies used in the tiny

house through Darc Technologies.

“It’s just ways of making houses

that are better insulated, have

more exposed thermal mass

inside so they regulate their

temperature passively a lot better

and making them as off grid as

possible,” Alan said.

Because it is an ongoing

experiment, the cost of the

tiny house is still not clear,

he said. Other than the

technological advances, the

house is also an artwork.

“That represents one of the

family friends wanting to make

an art piece out of it. He’s built

it looking like native bush to

portray that it’s low impact for

the environment,” Alan said.

He says the family has had

both positive and negative

comments about the looks of the

tiny house.

“Some people love the idea of

having a tiny wee house you can

pick up and move in a container

truck.”

City’s oldest

man dies, 107

• By Louis Day

CHRISTCHURCH’S oldest man

died last week.

Howard Rayner Buss was

107-years-old and 214 days when

he passed away on January 25 at

the Wesley Care rest home with

family by his side.

It is also believed that he could

have been New Zealand’s oldest

man for two years.

On August 7 2016 at 105, Mr

Buss became the oldest known

man in New Zealand following

the death of 108-year-old Bob

Edwards.

However, he was not known to

researchers until his 107th birthday

in 2018, when the NZ Parliament

Order Paper congratulated

him on reaching the milestone.

Mr Buss never married, had

any children and owned a house

or a car, but still managed to

enjoy a life filled with travel and

adventure.

His niece Lee Trusttum told

The Star yesterday he was a man

that never stayed in one place for

too long.

Mr Buss would spend months

at a time in Christchurch, Auckland

and parts of Australia as

well as enjoying a few cruises to

countries in Asia.

“He would always travel

equipped with essentials such

as a knife and fork, sauce spoon,

sewing kit, scissors and tools, he

was always fixing things, he was

a very accomplished sewer and he

would always cut his own hair.”

He was fully independent

up until he was 99 during the

2011 earthquake, when he

subsequently moved into Wesley

Care rest home. Mr Buss also

experienced the 2010 earthquakes

and the 1989 earthquakes in

Newcastle, Australia.

He suffered from a neuromuscular

disease that runs in his

family which meant that he spent

the majority of his adult life on

the pension.

Ms Trusttum said he managed

to save a lot on the pension due

to his frugal nature and would

on occasion donate large sums of

money to family members.

Mr Buss will be buried above

his mother with his sister’s ashes

at St Peter’s Church in Upper

Riccarton.

RISK: The hot days have dried out all the vegetation growth caused by the unusual

weather patterns.

Weather sparks risk

•From page 1

The hot days have dried out all

the vegetation growth caused by

the unusual weather patterns.

There was a lot of “fuel” that

could potentially cause a fire to

spread very quickly, said FENZ

principal rural fire officer Bruce

Janes

“With the fire risk indices

moving steadily upwards, it is

time to introduce restrictions.”

FENZ is also urging people to

avoid activities such as welding,

grinding and even mowing

lawns during the hottest part of

the day as those activities may

inadvertently cause a fire.

“It is also sensible for people

with homes near trees, scrub

or dry grass to do a check of

their property to ensure they

have minimised the risk of a

fire spreading and that they can

provide clear and easy access

to fire crews in the event of an

emergency,’’ said Mr Janes.

“I dream of a Pacific where this terrible disease has been eradicated and can no

longer cause fear, stigma and discrimination in families and communities.”

Lorena and three of her children were

diagnosed with leprosy.

Lorena says “Although our leprosy

could be cured, we knew that

sometimes there can be serious

effects from the disease, like

disabilities. I was terrified that more

of my children would get sick.

Then the Pacific Leprosy

Foundation started its new

programme which gives

medicine to the rest of the

family so that they are

much less likely to get

leprosy. It was wonderful

to have that reassurance!

I want to thank the Pacific

Leprosy Foundation for

giving us back our future.

Now I want the rest of the countries in the Pacific to be

able to take part in this programme, but I know that

costs a lot of money.”

Please can you help other families like Lorena’s to

be free from the fear of leprosy?

A gift of $35 will provide preventative treatment for

one household contact of a leprosy patient.

A gift of $420 enables the treatment of an average

household in Kiribati, Samoa or the Solomon

Islands.

Clock tower tenders being sought

• By Louis Day

TENDERS WILL be called

for this week to repair

the earthquake-damaged

Scarborough and New Brighton

clock towers.

The city council wants to

appoint one contractor to

undertake the repairs of the

clock towers.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge was confident

its repair strategy would save

ratepayers’ money by having one

contractor handle both towers.

“We believe the cost for

keeping the scaffold up is minor,

considering the cost efficiencies

in packaging both projects

together. The tenderers also

require the scaffold to be up to

fully inspect the structure and

damage so that they can price

their tender.”

Repairs are yet to start on

the Scarborough tower in spite

of the scaffolding being in

place since February last year.

The scaffolding is also costing

ratepayers $1500 per month.

Once a contractor has been

secured, repairs are expected to

take six months to complete.

Sumner resident of 40 years

Sam Bradley was frustrated by

the lack of progress that has been

made on the tower.

“I’m the manager for a

building company and if we

ran our company like that

TICKING: Work to repair the

Scarborough (left) and New

Brighton clock towers has

we wouldn’t have one to run

anymore.”

Mr Bradley was also

disappointed to see the

scaffolding being used by

vandals to deface the clock tower.

“It’s really upsetting,

especially when it is the council

that is giving people the opportunity

to deface it. It’s obviously

a bit of an icon for Sumner and

to see it like that is a bit of an

eyesore.”

poo in

ANGRY AKAROA residents are

problem.

Accusations ranged from owners

watching their dogs’ poo on

other peoples’ lawns to allowing

their dogs to roam free and poo

wherever they please.

One resident grew so frustrated

with a dog pooing on their lawn

that they collected the droppings

into a large bag before redistributing

them on to the owner’s lawn.

The resident said they have not

found dog poo on their lawn

since. The issue erupted on the

Akaroa Buy and Sell page after a

resident on Seaview Rd posted a

photo of a dog dropping that was

left on their back doorstep.

The disgruntled resident said

they had found dog poo on their

back doorstep three times in the

end of the dog and I tried to catch

Controversial water bottling company

closer to becoming fully operational

• By Julia Evans

CHINESE-OWNED Cloud

Ocean Water’s bottling factory is

one step closer to full operation.

The city council has approved

one resource consent application

and received another from the

company for industrial activities

at its site, which is bordered by

Belfast, Factory and Station Rds.

The resource consent

applications are separate from

those needed to take water, which

were granted by Environment

Canterbury.

Cloud Ocean has permission

to take 1.57 billion litres of water

a year.

A spokesperson said the

company was still in the

commissioning period. “We

expect to start official production

as soon as we can.”

The factory is currently

operating 24 hours a day, five

days a week.

“Once we have enough shift

employees, we will extend into

a 24-hour, seven-day operation.

This is our planned business

model – and operating 24/7 is

generally standard for factories in

order to maximise production.”

The company has drawn

controversy since 2017.

The saga continued in

December, when its plan to take

water from a second bore to

sell overseas was approved by

ECan-appointed independent

commissioner, Richard Fowler

QC.

The public did not get to have

a say on the application, which

sparked criticism from the city

council.

The bores it takes water from

dust, grease, nicotine and smoke residue

can be removed so that your blinds

smell fresh and are restored to their

original glory. The company can repair

blinds also, having a huge range of parts

in stock. And if you want something

completely new, a great range of blinds is

available for purchase.

The company prides itself on efficient

service, providing a fast turn-around,

with most work taking one or two

days, and a same day cleaning option is

available. It makes it as easy as possible

for clients. The Cashel Street location

couldn’t be more convenient and a pickup

and drop-off service is available. 150

blinds per day can be cleaned at this site.

A cut-down and size alteration service

is available in order that the blinds you

bought are a perfect fit.

They are experts in their field with a

City2Surf will mark

its 45th anniversary

on March 24.

Sophie Cornish

spoke to some of

the participants who

have entered from

around the city

Karen Young, Somerfield

– This year’s City2Surf will be

the first ever running event Mrs

Young has participated in. In

June last

year, she

joined the

Energise

Health and

Fitness

running

club and

has been

training

for the

6km event

Karen Young

through

a 12-week

programme.

Mrs Young runs with her club

once a week while trying to fit in

her own training.

“I think it will be achievable

(the 6km),” she said.

GET SET: Mark Winsley with his son Felix and partner Janelle Clark. (Right) – Rebecca Barrell

Mark Winsley, 49,

Bryndwr – Mr Winsley has

tackled the 14km City2Surf

event before, but this year he will

run the 6km. That’s because his

nine-year-old son, Felix, will be

running with him, along with

his partner, Janelle Clark. The

father and son have been “hiking

around the hills and jogging

around the parks” to prepare for

the event. Felix is not a novice

when it comes to running

events, having participated

in the Kids’ Mara’Fun race

before, which is part of the

Christchurch Marathon. “I

took my neighbours son to do it

(City2Surf) a few years ago– he

was a bit older. Felix watched it

and said I’m going do that papa,”

said Mr Winsley. The pair have

been training two or three times

a week. Their training includes a

hike in the weekend and a couple

of runs accompanied by “kicking

the ball around and playing

cricket,” said Mr Winsley.

Rebecca Barrell, 44,

Spreydon – In the past Ms

Barrell has completed the Buller

Gorge Half Marathon. Now she

wants to get back into running.

Ms Barrell has set herself the goal

of completing the 14km event

this year and has been training

using the 10-week programme

offered by City2Surf.

“I walk a lot up the hills, but I

wanted to improve my running

again and I thought this was a

good goal . . . I’ve done 10km

CITY

with Les Mills

2SURF

in the past, years ago, I did the

6km last year with the dog,

so I thought 2this was a good

progression,” she said.

The registered nurse has been

running around Hagley Park for

her training.

CITY2SURF

Judith McInnes, 77,

Christchurch Central – Mrs

McInnes, who is retired, says her

participation in the 14km event

is “not a hardcore thing, just for

fun.”

It will not

be her first

time in the

City2Surf,

having

completed the

event six or

seven times

previously,

both walking

and jogging.

Fire rages, homes at risk

. . . are you too?

“I do both walking and

jogging and it’s just a

challenge.”

Mrs McInnes goes jogging

twice a week and likes to explore

the Harry Ell Walkway, Sign

of the Kiwi, Sign of the Takahe

and Godley Head tracks.

“Often in the past, I have

walked with friends. A friend

of mine is walking the 6km

and then we will have a coffee

afterwards,” she said.

Josiah Beach, 30, Anna

Beach, 30, and Ezra

Beach, 16, Cashmere – The

trio will take on the 14km event

this year.

Husband and wife, Josiah and

Anna, have completed the event

a handful of times previously,

but it will be Ezra’s first time

doing the 14km.

“He’s just brought some new

running shoes especially for it,”

said his older brother Josiah,

who has run up Rapaki Track

a couple of times to prepare. “I

think I’ll get really get started

on my training next month.”

Mrs Beach ran her first

City2Surf in 2009, when

training for a half marathon and

“never looked back.”

FAMILY AFFAIR: Ezra, Anna and Josiah Beach are

preparing for the City2Surf.

Ed Hogbin, 23, Strowan

– Mr Hogbin describes

himself as a “little bit of

a runner” but it will be

his first time doing the

City2Surf.

“A few years back I

did a half marathon and

thought I’d have another

crack at one this year.”

He will use this year’s

City2Surf 14km event as

Ed Hogbin

a “halfway gauge” while training

to see how on-track

he is for his next halfmarathon.

Hagley Park is his ‘goto’

spot for training two

or three times a week.

“Occasionally I spice

it with some hills and

head to the Rapaki

Track or the Halswell

Quarry.”

ICON: Better Already - The Songs Of Al Park features covers

of songs by local musicians.

Celebrating Park’s

musical legacy

FROM STARRING as a pimp

in The Dance Exponents’s video

for Victoria in 1983 to mentoring

a young Marlon Williams, Al

Park has been a part of the

Christchurch music scene for 40

years.

To celebrate Park’s contribution

to music in the region, Lyttelton

musician Delaney Davidson has

produced a new album, Better

Already - The Songs of Al Park.

The album features cover of

Park songs by musicians including

Marlon Williams, Jordan

Luck, Davidson, and Adam

McGrath.

“It’s a thank you, a very loud

and appreciative tip o’ the cap to

someone who has had a shoulder

to many wheels, a hand in many

helpings, a voice of wisdom in

many thinkings and wonderings,”

McGrath said.

In the 80s Park was the front

man of Louie and the Hotsticks.

He also ran Al’s Bar until the

building was damaged in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

The album launches on February

15 with a special release show

at Blue Smoke featuring Park,

Luck, McGrath, Barry Saunders,

Janice Grey, Adam Hattaway,

Anthea Struthers & Helen

Mulholland.

Looking for a great fun

family day out?

2019 Skope Classic - Car Racing like no other!

Come along to the 28th edition of the

Canterbury Car Club’s Skope Classic at

the Mike Pero Motorsport Park, Ruapuna

on February 1-3, where the actionpacked

calendar includes Mainland

Muscle Cars, vintage racing, and sports

cars, along with classic single seaters and

saloon cars.

One of the most iconic racing events

in New Zealand, suitable for all ages, the

event will once again headline the popular

Formula 5000 single seater revival, along

with a strengthening Historic Touring

car category.

On the Sunday there will be specific

activities just for kids, including a bouncy

castle, face painting and, as always, you

can walk through the pits, meet the

drivers, teams and get to the all of the

cars up close and personal!

The ground shaking muscle cars will be

Guy Stewart’s iconic Porsche.

raring to go, along with the ever

impressive Formula 5000’s, a class with

serious excitement.

The Muscle Cars, which highlight a

field choked with Chev Camaro’s and

Ford Mustangs, have grown from the

formation of the Central Muscle Cars

in the North Island and the Australian

Masters Touring Car category.

A spectator survey at the last Australian

Supercar meeting held on the Hamilton

street circuit, resulted in the Central

Muscle Cars outranking all other classes

by four to one on the he drove in the

1980s.

An exciting lunchtime show is likely to

be provided by the locally built Formula

One style “Rodin Fzed”. Murphy will take

charge of the car, which has been built

by Australian billionaire David Dicker

at his amazing

facility located

on the Waiau to

Kaikoura inland

road.

The project

began back in

1999. In 2005,

Mr Dicker

found the ideal

site away from

the public eye

to build a 2.8

kilometre test

track with

accompanying

facilities. The

latest model, the

fifth evolution, is

powered by a 3.8 litre

Cosworth V8 engine,

which is reputed to

achieve 0 to 100kph

in 2.9 seconds with

a maximum speed

of 300kph. Saturday,

and two to one on

Meals cut short

YOU KNOW that friend

you have that’s always

eyeing up what’s on your

plate? They don’t actually

ask for anything, but you

eventually cave under their

longing stare.

Our darling little Vittoria

has begun mastering

that art at a young age and

has taken it a step or two

further.

Unless she’s already

asleep when we eat, she’s

out on patrol. She wanders

over, all cute smile and

wide eyes, to point at our

meal and say “ooook.”

If you won’t sacrifice a

little of what you’ve got, she

steps it up.

A couple more “oook”s

come out before she starts

fake crying. Increasing the

volume until you give in.

Laura is her normal target,

she’s a soft touch, but

me and guests are also fair

game when needs be.

Now don’t think we

aren’t feeding her. Her little

escapades always happen

after her own meal and

she’s expanding her outlook

to include all three of

the main meals of the day,

as well as snack times.

I haven’t eaten a full slice

of toast in a week.

On Tuesday I took Vittoria

to Willowbank with

some friends. Because of

the timing, I took along a

packed lunch for both me

and her. Hers was flash; Bolognese,

fresh avocado and

rock melon for dessert.

My lunch of two sandwiches

literally came in a

bread bag. #bubseatsbetter.

VITTORIA

& Matt

FEEDING TIME: Matt and Vittoria feeding the

eels at Willowbank, before it was time for their

own lunch.

I knew when she was

getting hungry, because she

started running her “oook”

scam on her friend’s mum

to get some of their banana,

while we were walking.

When we sat down to eat,

she gobbled up her meal,

some her friends rusk,

some of my cheese, a bit

of my sandwich and then

demanded (and received)

some of my rock melon.

I can’t refuse her, of

course and it’s all healthy,

so no big trouble there.

There’s no point in

complaining about her

rapacious appetite anyway,

she inherited it from her

parents.

Besides, she’s a growing

young lady and all that.

Plus a full day of animal

excitement meant she fell

asleep before I had my

dinner.

‘Back to business’

THE START of the school

year is the final reminder

that the holidays are well

and truly over.

I hope readers have had

a great break and have

returned refreshed for the

year ahead. I certainly

have.

Rob and I did our

usual pilgrimage to the

Coromandel, which was a

glorious place to see in the

new year. I read about six

books in 10 days, which is

of course what I love about

being in a place with no

TV, cellphone coverage or

internet.

It has again reminded

me just how easy it is to get

distracted by these things.

The other thing I love

about the environment is

the spectacular scenery,

the pohutukawa trees,

the night sky unspoilt by

artificial light, and the

wildlife – especially the

New Zealand dotterel. It

really was the archetypal

Kiwi holiday.

So back to business.

Next Thursday will

see the new finance and

performance committee,

chaired by councillor Raf

Manji, take centre stage.

This is now a committee

of the whole council with

the delegation to make

decisions, as opposed to

what was a sub-committee

making recommendations

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

to the full council.

This is not only more

streamlined, it will also

allow greater oversight

of council spending and

delivery performance.

It will still be livestreamed

so I hope you

check it out. This should

make these matters far

more accessible, which will

improve transparency and

accountability as well.

The draft Annual Plan

will be next up after that

and will be debated on

Tuesday, February 12, so I

will give more detail then.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Daddy Cool frontman comes back

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL: Australian singer Ross Wilson will perform at

Selwyn Sounds 2019.

• By Anan Zaki

THE FRONTMAN of a former

band famous for its song

Eagle Rock is coming back to

New Zealand for the first time

in more than 30 years.

Ross Wilson was the lead

singer of the group Daddy Cool

and will play solo at Selwyn

Sounds on March 2.

It’s also the first time the

71-year-old Australian will perform

solo in New Zealand.

“I’m happy to be coming

back. I’m sorry it took so long,”

Wilson said.

When he last performed in

the country in the 1980s, it was

as the lead singer with Daddy

Cool.

“[They] were quite big in New

Zealand, we played there three

times,” Wilson said.

“But for some reason I hadn’t

played there as a solo artist so

I’m looking forward to it.”

Unfortunately for Daddy Cool

fans, Wilson says the band won’t

perform again following the

deaths of two band members,

Ross Hannaford and Wayne

Duncan.

Daddy Cool’s last performance

was in 2014 when they

were inducted into the Victorian

Music Hall of Fame.

He says he

often plays songs

from his bands

Daddy Cool and

Mondo Rock

during his solo

performances.

“I have plans

probably in

about a year’s

time where I just

play Daddy Cool

music.”

Wilson’s music

career launched in 1964, and he is

not showing any sign of slowing

down.

“This year, I’m already booked

out solidly until the end of

August. I’m playing a couple

of gigs a week, festivals and a

bunch of stuff with John

Farnham headlining.”

“Just in support of him because

I wrote four songs that he recorded

over the years,” Wilson said.

He last visited Christchurch

a year before the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

“I played on a little cruise

that went from Australia. It

stopped in Fiordland, Dunedin

and then Christchurch,” Wilson

said.

“Because I was so upset about

the earthquake, having just

Jon Stevens

Leo Sayer

been there [a year before], I feel

like I have a connection.”

Wilson will land in Christchurch

the day before Selwyn

Sounds on March 2. He hopes to

get a chance to explore the city

and its surrounds while here.

“I’m not sure how long we’re going

to be staying there, but it’s usually

fly in and fly out . . . I’m hoping

we get a day afterwards and enjoy

Christchurch and the area.”

Selwyn Sounds will be headlined

by the Little River Band,

supported by Leo Sayer, John

Stevens, The Golden Kiwis,

Peter Urlich, Midge Marsden,

Automatic 80s and Wilson.

•Selwyn Sounds will be

held on Saturday, March 2,

at the Lincoln Domain.

Hair stylist for a Broadway star

Fire rages, homes at risk

DREAM JOB: Sarah Greenwood-Buchanan has been

working as a personal dresser, tour companion and

assistant for Broadway star Elaine Paige.

Sarah Greenwood-Buchanan has been on tour with international Broadway star

Elaine Paige. The personal hairdresser and assistant talks to Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN SARAH Greenwood-

Buchanan retired from a long

career in hairdressing, she never

expected to land a job working for

one of Broadway’s biggest stars.

But in 2012 English singer

Elaine Paige was on the hunt for a

personal dresser during her tour

of New Zealand, Australia and

Asia. Greenwood-Buchanan, who

also works on hair and make-up

at The Court Theatre, landed the

job.

Earlier this month, Greenwood-

Buchanan started travelling and

working with Paige again on

her tour of Australasia which

finished on Tuesday. Well known

for her work in musical theatre,

Paige’s career came into the

spotlight when she played Eva

Peron in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s

production of Evita in 1978.

Greenwood-Buchanan said she

was “very privileged” to be asked

back to work as Paige’s personal

hairdresser, tour companion and

personal assistant.

“I think she likes me because

we like a lot of the same things

. . . the fact I can help her with

her hair and make-up is a bit of a

treat for her because she usually

always does it herself. We just get

on really well,” she said.

While Greenwood-Buchanan

was in charge of setting up Paige’s

dressing room, she said Paige

preferred to get ready and decide

what to wear by herself.

She described Paige as a “classy

lady” who knows how to make

herself look a “million dollars.”

“She is absolutely lovely. She

is very down to earth, she has a

fantastic sense of humour. We

have a lot of laughs,” Greenwood-

Buchanan said.

She said it was a “career

highlight” to work with Paige.

“I remember listening to her

songs in the 80s . . . I was in awe

of her voice, her presence and

persona.”

Touring with Paige in 2012

“kicked off a massive career”

for Greenwood-Buchanan who

“didn’t really know” what she

was going to do after 29 years as

a hairdresser. She has since been

involved in sourcing and styling

wigs, hairdressing, make-up and

Gary Lawson

Irrepressible bowls legend is back

One of the country’s

most successful and

controversial bowls

players Gary Lawson

has been selected

in the New Zealand

squad for the first time

in a decade. He talks

to Julia Evans about

looking to the future

How old were you when you

started playing bowls?

I used to chuck them down

when was about five, but I didn’t

actually join a club until I was 21

or 22. I played my first nationals

in 1986 and that was the first year

I played.

How did the older players feel

about being beaten by a young

guy like yourself?

No. There were a few young

guys, a few of us that started

at the same time, at the same

age. Now there’s heaps of them,

there’s heaps of young fellows

and young girls. Only a couple

of years ago, for example, the

Australian woman’s team was

younger than the Australian

men’s cricket team. I reckon it’s

a young person’s game that old

people can play.

You’ve got quite a strong

background in sport, you were a

good young tennis player and a

rugby first five.

I went alright, but I was a

yard too slow and about 10kg

too light to be a good rugby

player. I played senior rugby for

Merivale for a number of years.

But my father was a New Zealand

champion bowls player, he won

the singles in 1968. It was always

going to be something I ended

up playing. I played a lot of rugby

and tennis first. Once I knew I

was not going to be an All Black

or play tennis for New Zealand,

which I knew really young, I

wanted to play bowls for

New Zealand.

I played a little bit of indoor

bowls; it was something I was

reasonably handy at right from

the start and I just got into it

really. I was never a superstar

rugby player or tennis player but

I just loved it. I just loved the

camaraderie of playing rugby

TOP OF HIS

GAME: Gary

Lawson

never gave

up his

dream of

playing

bowls

for New

Zealand

again while

establishing

his sports

bar, the

Horse and

Jockey.

MARTIN

HUNTER

– I think most New Zealand

blokes do, don’t they?

How did you feel getting

named in the New Zealand

squad for the first time in a

decade?

It’s like getting picked for the

first time, really, especially after

10 years. You kind of think every

year you miss out is a year that

it’s getting tougher to get back in,

but you never really gave up the

dream.

It was probably just a dream

for a long time, I’ve been given a

lifeline and it’s up to me to take

it. I’m looking forward to it, it’s a

lot of hard work. I’ve always said

getting picked for New Zealand

is fantastic, but that’s when the

work starts. I don’t want to just

play, I want to be a great player

for New Zealand.

How did you find out that

you’d been selected?

I was at the airport in

Nelson, only a week or so

ago, and I had just spent the

weekend there with my daughter

Gemma. Kaushik Patel, the

high performance manager for

Bowls New Zealand rang me

and said congratulations, you’re

in the squad. It was pretty cool.

We didn’t really do much to

celebrate, just jumped on the

plane and came home.

What are you going to bring

to the team this time?

I know this is a pretty cliché

word, but I think the experience

is one thing and the fact that I’ve

been there before.

I think I can bring some mental

toughness and probably the

reading of the game. I think I’m

reasonably astute at that now, you

get better over time at knowing

what shot to play, what shot not

to play. You’ve got to play to your

strengths.

on the green for New Zealand

Hopefully I bring a good

training ethic, once I’m in these

situations I like to think I train

hard and practice hard. That’s

probably good for me, it keeps

me on track. I like training

and I like practicing. It’s like

the old saying, you don’t win

the Melbourne Cup on the first

Tuesday in November. It’s all in

your preparation. You’ve only

got to listen to Steve Hansen

and Richie McCaw, it’s all about

preparation. You can turn up

without preparing and you might

get lucky, but you take a lot of

that luck out of it if you train

well.

How often do you train now

before a tournament?

Leading into a tournament

I put a lot more effort into it

than if I’m not. Getting this

recall with New Zealand, I’ll

manage my training. When I

first started, I would train for

four or five hours a day. Now,

it’s not about quantity, it’s about

quality. I quite like practicing

early in the morning. I can turn

up at quarter to six, six o’clock

in the morning, but only spend

45, 40, 50min, depending, and

achieve as much as I used to in

three or four hours. It’s about

being out there with a bowl

and just doing it, more about

getting timing, rhythm and stuff

like that. That’s fine. I go to Les

Mills, I’ll probably spend a lot

more time there in the next six

to 12 months. That part of it is

PRO: Gary Lawson bowls for

New Zealand in the 2008

world championships at the

probably more important for me,

just getting as fit as I can before

the long days. When you go away

for a couple of weeks, you’re up at

six and you’re not off the greens

until half past six at night. She’s a

long day. I think if you’re fit, that

does help big-time at the end of

the day.

What makes Gary Lawson

tick?

I love life to be fair. You want

to be successful at what you do,

you’ve got to work hard at it. For

me, I don’t spend a lot of time at

the Horse and Jockey (Lawson’s

sports bar in Upper Riccarton).

I come in and do the pokies in

the morning, spend a couple of

hours helping out when they’re

busy. I don’t spend more than

two or three days at the bar.

We’ve got an asbestos removal

company as well with another

mate of mine. So we’re working

on that, doing a bit of work in

Wellington this year. I did a bit

of work with Fletchers and EQC

during the earthquakes. The

next few months are going to be

busy, I’ve got a lot of bowls. My

day’s going to be about getting

up, training, coming in here and

making sure everyone is happy.

So it’s a busy life but it’s all about

time management. I actually

love being busy, I hate just sitting

around doing nothing. I think

my brain’s always ticking over.

There will never be a day where

I don’t think about getting the

chance to play for New Zealand.

It might be in the shower, I

might be doing the pokies, doing

anything. It’s always in the back

of my mind and I don’t think it

ever goes away. When you don’t

have it, you appreciate it. The 10

years went pretty quick but you

just have to accept it. It wasn’t

something that chewed away

and ate me up. I knew that some

things had to change before I

had any chance of getting back

in. They changed and once they

changed, I thought well here’s my

chance.

What changed?

I think everyone knows. One

man in particular, but I’m not

going to go into that, I’m not even

going to mention his name. It’s

history. For me, it’s about moving

on, a new start.

‘I probably haven’t been a great learner,

•From page 25

How has your chequered past

shaped your future?

I look back on it and I’ve made

mistakes, but you’ve just got to

front up and accept it. I probably

haven’t been a great learner, I’ve

made a couple of mistakes. But

in saying that, I’ve said my mind

a little bit and I’ve been who I

am. I think sometimes you’ve

got to express yourself. I could

honestly say that if I had just

kept everything to myself and

not spoken my word, I would

have probably played 600 or 700

games for New Zealand.

But that’s life and you can’t

change it. I’ve got a saying,

I don’t know if I stole it from

someone or not, but I always say

that ‘I can’t change history, I can

only create it’. That’s the thing,

my past is my past. There’s been

some bad times but I always tell

people there’s also been some

great times.

I’ve got 13 New Zealand titles,

a couple of world titles and heaps

of Asia Pacific titles. There’s been

heaps of great moments, but

people only like to talk about the

negative ones. I sort of say, this

is a new start for me. I’ve had a

great past, but let’s have a great

future and try make sure I get

everything right.

You’ve always spoken your

mind and called a spade a spade,

but have you mellowed as your

career has gone on?

I think I’d like to think I have

mellowed a little bit, but I also

think the way the structure is

in Bowls New Zealand now is

BACK: Gary Lawson has

been selected in the New

Zealand bowls squad for

the first time in a decade.

that they actually offer people

the opportunity to voice their

opinion a little more. They

actually want it, they encourage

it. Rather than going out into the

public domain and expressing

how grumpy you are about

something, the door is always

open at Bowls New Zealand now.

In the past, I’ve probably felt like

I’ve bashed down the door and

it hasn’t opened, so I’ve spoken

out publicly and it hasn’t been the

right thing to do. In the end it’s

crucified me, but at the time I felt

like it was the right thing to do.

Do you feel like when you

make headlines, it’s always for

the wrong reasons? Have you

felt like you’ve been made out to

be a villain?

A little bit, but I think the

media is like that. The game

probably hasn’t got that, so if they

can grab a little bit of that and get

something. In a way sometimes

that’s probably been the only

publicity the game has had. But I

think now it’s getting better and

better. Our new chief executive

Mark (Cameron) has got the

game on TV and we had that

Bowls3Five. That was fantastic

because a lot of people had an

opinion on it, but it was designed

for people who don’t play bowls

to watch it and say, I want to go

have a look at that. We got

some fantastic feedback.

How do you want to be

remembered?

I want to be remembered as

a great player. I want to leave

a record, especially of New

Zealand titles. At the moment

I’m only three or four in front,

but I’d like to leave a mark that

people say, well, that’s where

we’ve got to get to. Leave them

something to chase. And, you

know, being a world champion is

something that I always desire.

I’ve actually played in the world

championships three times.

We lost a final, we lost a semifinal,

so I’ve actually got five

world championship medals plus

the Leonard Trophy, which we

won as a team. I’ve actually got

six world championship medals,

but we only ever remember the

two golds. I’ve had a couple of

other close cracks at it as well.

We’ve done really well at the

world championships. I had two

Commonwealth Games where I

didn’t come home with anything.

I’ve made a couple of mistakes’

What are the highs and lows

within your career?

Being a world champion is the

ultimate in your sport. That’s

always the best. But every time I

win a New Zealand title, I always

think that’s better than the last

one, they all mean the same to

me. Obviously your first one is

important, but when I won my

13th one, it just felt the same.

They’re so hard to win, I’ve lost

six finals and another 12 semis.

It used to take me a long time to

get over losing. But these days,

by the time I’ve got into the club

house and had a beer, I’m fine.

I’m recovered pretty quickly.

The next day, you’re like that’s a

lost opportunity, but you just sit

down and think well what can

I do better next time. It’s one of

those games you just can’t win

every day, it’s just too tough.

How is the future of New

Zealand bowls looking in your

eyes?

They’ve got a really good highperformance

programme the

boys have put together over the

last six months. New Zealand

hasn’t had a good one for a

long time. We’ve got a fantastic

group of young players, men and

women coming through. The

development squads are strong

in depth. But I reckon the future

looks fantastic.

Is your daughter Gemma into

sports?

Yes, she’s into hockey. She

plays for St Margaret’s. She’s 16

and in year 12 this year. But she’s

not ultra-competitive, she just

gets in there and plays. She loves

going to the gym, she’s a fit little

monkey. She’s into the healthy

living sort of thing. She’s weekon,

week-off, she does a week

with her mother, Judy. She’s a

champion.

How long have you owned the

Horse and Jockey?

It opened in January last year.

It’s been good, I’ve got a couple

of partners now. The frustrating

thing is there is a 23-room

hotel upstairs that should have

been open 12 months ago so it’s

disappointing for us. But at the

end of the day, we’ve plugged

away quite nicely and it’s ticking

away nicely. We’ve got regulars,

we’ve got an older patronage and

then when the students get back

we get a few popping in during

the day. But a lot of good people,

you get to know them. They’ve all

got a story.

You’ve had a few bars, what

are some of the others you’ve

been involved with?

DADDY’S GIRL. Gary Lawson with his daughter in 2008

before the start of the smen’s pairs final at the national

championships in Christchurch.

I’ve just dabbled in a few with a

couple of mates. I had a little bit

of action with a mate at the Fat

Ladies Arms, just a shareholder

and a couple up in Auckland. It’s

been a busy time.

What are some of the upsides

and downsides of running a

pub?

It’s a lot tougher game now

than it used to be. The food side

of it, you’ve got to have the food

and it’s difficult to get that right.

At the end of the day, if you’ve

got a keg of beer that lasts two

weeks and you’ve got time to sell

it. But if you’ve got a lettuce or a

chicken or whatever, you need to

sell it and if people don’t come

in, you can’t, so you can get a

lot of waste. With food there are

people who are really good at it

and there are people who aren’t.

Obviously, now there’s a lot more

restrictions then there used to

be. But it’s good fun as long as

you come with the right attitude.

People come into a bar to have a

beer because they’re either happy

or sad and it’s your job to make

them have a good time. You’ve

just got to be cheerful when

people come in. If you don’t like

people, you shouldn’t own a pub.

What are some of the more

humorous moments you’ve seen

at the pub?

None of that carry on, everyone

just has a couple of beers and

wanders off, either in a taxi or an

Uber. You’d have to wait for the

book to hear any of that.

Is there going to be a book?

No, no, no – definitely not. We

thought about it years ago, but it’s

not going to happen.

Summer stunners which like warm temps

As the temperatures soar,

several plants bounce to the

fore, producing a colour through

flashy foliage or brilliant blooms.

It’s all about colour, colour and

more colour. Rachel Vogan

reports

1. SALVIA ‘AMISTAD’

Perennial sages have had a real resurgence

over recent years and when this one

arrived a couple of years ago, I was quick to

snap it up.

This is a taller variety, reaching 1m in

height, which makes it a good anchor

tenant for the back of the border. It looks a

treat mixed in with white roses and other

showy blooms.

The dark purple flowers sit pertly above

the green foliage and look a picture until

the first frosts arrive. Protect from frost

where possible or take a few cuttings to

over

winter and replant again next spring.

Great contender for a larger patio tub.

The bees love it.

2. BEGONIA WATERFALL SERIES

These newish begonias are

just the ticket for all-year-round summer

and autumn colour. Having a low

growing habit, they have been designed

to cover areas of soil to provide carpets

of colour until winter arrives or early

frosts appear. They produce a wonderful

cascade of colour in hanging baskets.

Nestle in a warm, dry

spot over winter and they

will bound back to life again

in late spring.

VIVID: This bidens variety is named

camp fire.

3. CORNUS FLORIDA ‘CHEROKEE

SUNSET’

A variegated dogwood is

just the ticket for gardens that want some

contrasting and colourful foliage at the

back of the garden.

With a tall, slim habit, this small tree

cloaks itself in pretty foliage for nine

months of the year. As the leaves appear

in spring, creamy flowers sit on the

branches just adding the plant’s appeal.

Protect from gale-force winds, or plant

where a fence or other trees will provide

protection.

4. HYDRANGEA ‘FLOWER MASTER

BLUE’

The big blue mophead hydrangea is

a ripper. Its flower heads are some of

the biggest I have ever seen! It forms a

medium-sized shrub and will cope with

some sun. To keep the flowers a rich blue

colour feed with aluminium sulphate,

which is available in the garden stores

and sometimes labelled ‘hydrangea blue

fertiliser’. It comes in both liquid and

powdered forms.

Top tip: to make blue hydrangeas pink,

fertilise

with lime and dolomite.

5. NEW: ROSE ‘STRAWBERRY

BLONDE’

A new floribunda rose produces masses

of golden-apricot blooms that soften with

age, fading into bleached blonde shades.

The blooms have a good scent, which adds

to its appeal. It forms a compact bush from

which dozens of blooms will appear over

the season.

A good option for a large patio planter or

tub. Like all roses, it will appreciate regular

watering.

6. DAY LILY

As the name suggests, the blooms on

these hardy lilies only last a day. However,

as they produce such an abundance of

blooms, they are rarely without a flower

over the summer, making them hard to go

past for a flowering option in full sun and

poor soils. Once established, daylilies will

withstand long dry periods and require

little or no care. For foodies, both the

flowers and buds are edible. Clumps are

easy to divide too, so after a few seasons,

you will be able to split the plants into

several bits.

7. BIDENS FERULIFOLIA

‘CAMP FIRE’

What a wee ripper this plant is. Mine has

romped through winter and has been

bursting with blooms since November.

It forms a low-growing mound, which

spreads out to about 80cm. It looks like a

soft plant, which wouldn’t tolerate a lot, but

it copes with neglect and survives happily

with just a regular watering regime. It selfcleans

so there is no need for deadheading

– simply plant and walk away. Wonderful

perennial for patio tubs and window boxes.

Your fresh food people

SAUSAGE, RED ONION

AND EGG BAKE

Ingredients

6 free range eggs

2 1/2 cups whole milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

2 tsp herbes de provence

cubes

1 Tbsp olive oil

500g pork sausages

2 medium red peppers, chopped

1 red onion, chopped

2 cups coarsely grated gruyere

cheese

Directions

Butter a 13 x 9 baking dish.

Whisk first seven ingredients

together in a large bowl. Set

aside.

Place bread cubes in a large

bowl.

Warm olive oil in large saute

pan over medium heat. Add the

sausages and brown for 5min

each side. Remove sausages

from pan to a plate and cut

into chunks. To the same saute

pan, add the red peppers and

onions and continue to saute for

7-9min. Remove from the heat.

Pour the egg mixture over the

bread cubes.

Add the sausage, peppers

and onion mixture and 1 1/2

cups of the shredded cheese.

Stir until blended. Transfer to

prepared baking dish. Press the

mixture down with a spatula

to thoroughly soak everything.

Cover bake with plastic wrap

and refrigerate for at least two

hours, preferably overnight.

Pre-heat oven to 200 deg C.

BRAISED LAMB CHOPS

WITH SWEETCORN

Ingredients

2 lamb loin chops

1/2 tsp tuscan

1/8tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp thyme

1/2 Tbsp olive oil

2 tsp sherry

1 1/4 Tbsp water

6 sweetcorn cobbs

1tsp butter

1 tsp sugar

Directions

Sprinkle your seasonings over

both sides of the lamb chops. Let

it sit for 1min while you heat a

pot. Make sure you’re cooking

these in a pot and not a pan.

You want to turn the heat up to

medium-high.

When ready add the olive oil

and lamb chops cook for about

3min per side just to sear the

meat. Remove the lamb and turn

the heat down to a little less –

medium low.

Add in the sherry and water.

Add the lamb back into the pan

and cover, cooking for about 1

1/2 to two hours.

When you have the corn

cleaned up, add enough water to

the pot to cover the corn then add

in butter and sugar. Let cook as

normal until it becomes nice and

fragrant. Best way to know when

corn is done is when you can

smell it.

CITY 2 SURF TRAINING PROGRAMME

WEEK 3: Knuckling down and some tips on nutrition and weight loss

In week 3 the early excitement of the City 2 Surf project you

have undertaken is wearing off. You may not have sensed a

big improvement in fitness levels yet and other commitments

are getting in the way of training. After your determined

start the first doubts set in: “Can I do this?” This is the time

to knuckle down. You need another 2 or 3 consistent weeks

before you notice a significant improvement in fitness and

energy levels and perhaps some noticeable weight loss. Once

that happens you will be well on your way.

The best time of day to exercise is early morning. It is good to

get it out of the way and it will energise you for the rest of the

day. Later in the day you might just feel that little bit of fatigue

or things crop up which will tempt you to say “tomorrow is

another day….” This can easily become habit and before you

know it you have lost one or 2 training sessions every week.

Of course you might have a good reason for not being able

to get out early. Getting the children up and organised is one

of these, although….is there a chance that your partner can

play a role? Other times of the day for your training session

are perfectly fine too but good planning is required. A light

snack (toast/bread, fruit) before your early morning training

session is generally recommended to assist your blood sugar

levels. This also applies if you exercise later in the morning or

afternoon. Breakfast or a meal after training will assist with

replenishing energy stores. Exercising before going to bed

might keep you awake for a while if you are a light sleeper.

(from the SporstMed sports nutrition department):

If you need to lose some weight, then this training programme will help

you. But it will only do so if you pay attention to your nutrition at the

same time. Healthy choices include bread and or cereals for breakfast,

sandwiches or a salad for lunch and an evening meal consisting of plenty

of vegetables with fish, chicken or lean meat. Pasta and rice are also

good staple foods for active people. One helping and avoidance of rich

desserts will assist your weight loss. A healthy snack mid morning and

afternoon will help you get through the day. Fruit is always an excellent

choice. Avoid fatty foods and snacks with refined sugars. Special diets

might help you lose weight in the short term but are hard to sustain

and not always balanced or healthy in the long term. If you need help

with your nutrition or weight loss this might be a good time to have a

consultation with an expert, like one of the SportsMed nutritionists.

in brief

Canterbury golfers win

Otago strokeplay

With rounds of 66, 68 and 73,

Harewood’s Matthew McLean

won the Otago strokeplay title,

decided over 54 holes on the

Balmacewen course in Dunedin

at the weekend. The 23-year-old

finished three shots ahead of

Otago’s Brandon Hodgson.

The women’s event was won by

Russley’s Maddie May finishing

with a two-under 72 to win by

four shots. The tournament was

the final event of the House of

Travel Tour which was won by

Rangiora’s Kazuma Kobori.

Football Ferns named

for Cup of Nations

Victoria Esson, Annalie Longo,

Aimee Phillips and Meikayla

Moore have been named in the

Football Ferns squad for the

Cup of Nations in Australia

next month. The world No 19

Ferns will take on Australia,

Argentina and the Korea

Republic from February 28 to

March 6 in their build up to the

FIFA Women’s World Cup in

France in June.

Rams sign top ANBL rookie

THE CANTERBURY Rams

have signed ANBL rookie of the

year contender Emmett Naar for

the upcoming NBL season.

The 24-year-old Australian

import is currently playing

for the Illawarra Hawks in the

ANBL

Naar played college basketball

at Saint Mary’s College of

California in the United States,

where he averaged 9.5 points per

game and 7.9 assists in his senior

year.

He broke the school’s record

for most assists formerly held by

Cleveland Cavaliers NBA guard,

Matthew Dellavedova.

Last year he was also named

in the first-team All West Coast

Conference.

Playing for Illawarra, Naar

recently had 18 points, four

rebounds and two assists in a

win against the Sydney Kings.

“We are really excited about

Emmett’s signing . . . He is an

amazing young player with a

mature head. Highly regarded

by the Hawks coaching staff and

team mates Emmett’s high IQ

and understanding of the game

and his ability to run a team are

strengths that we are looking

forward to at the Rams,” said

Rams head coach Mick Downer.

“Emmett has a proven history

of success and locker room

leadership.”

The Australian becomes the

Rams third signing, joining

centre Mike Karena and

shooting guard Tony Tolovae

who have both re-signed for

2019.

The Rams still have two

available import spots on their

roster which are expected to be

confirmed in the coming weeks.

BALLER: Emmett Naar is

the Rams first import signing

ahead of the NBL season in

April. ​

Keas look for third Crosbie Nines title

STRONG START: The Linwood Keas began their year by winning the Rolleston Nines at the

weekend. ​

• By Gordon Findlater

THE LINWOOD Keas

could once again face tough

competition from their rugby

union counterparts in their bid

to win three straight Crosbie

Nines tournaments.

The Keas will go into the

tournament as favourites after

winning the Rolleston Nines at

the weekend.

However, they will face a bigger

pool of talent at Crosbie Park

on Saturday including a Linwood

Bulls side.

Last year the Bulls progressed

to the all Linwood final and lost

to the Keas in the final play of the

game.

“It’s cool to see rugby teams

coming across and giving a

tournament like this a crack,”

said Keas coach Andrew

Auimatagi.

They were pretty impressive

last year. They’ll be looking to

come back and show a few teams

up again.”

The Bulls team is made up predominantly

of premier division

and colts players.

“We really enjoy being invited

by rugby league to a competition

like this because it’s so physical

and it’s great to get a bit of

contact for the body, but also we

do a lot of learning off the other

code as well,” said Bulls coach

Sam Jack.

Other teams competing at the

Crosbie Nines include Riccarton

Knights, Halswell Hornets,

Northern Bulldogs, Eastern Eagles,

Papanui Tigers and Hornby

Panthers.

Black Clash: an expensive after work party

WHAT A fantastic day it was on

Friday sinking a few beers with

some familiar faces that had also

wandered down to Hagley Oval

on a mild evening to catch up on

the working week and take in a

bit of cricket.

Yes, as long as you blocked

out the fact you’d just spent $60

getting in and $40 on the first

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

round of beers, the Black Clash

was a great excuse to gather with

more than 7000 others who were

at Christchurch’s most overpriced

after work party.

The product on the pitch was

as expected – the odd nostalgic

moment, but predominantly

akin to watching any top end

club match you would find over

the weekend.

From my point of view this

wasn’t dampening the hype as

Team Cricket batted out their 20

overs.

But then we came to the

change of innings . . . ICC rules

mean any top flight twenty20

match has a 20min interval

between innings, time enough to

grab a refreshment and maybe a

bite to eat.

However, this was the Black

Clash where time was needed

for the live TVNZ broadcast to

cut to the 6pm news bulletin and

for some of the players to share a

beer or two with the city’s movers

and shakers in the hospitality

area.

It was around this point a few

of us were starting to feel duped

as what felt like a test match

lunch break meant painfully

dragging out small talk while

waiting to watch Brendon Mc-

Cullum – the only batsman at

the event still of note.

We got our fill of McCullum

thanks to what seemed like a

couple of intentional drops and

the match was dragged out to the

tight finish written in the script.

Kudos to you Duco Events

for having the brains to take an

event we’ve been able to attend

for free for the past 20 odd years

(the former Crusaders cystic

fibrosis fundraising match), adding

a few extra big names and

duping us into paying $60.

For those of you who watched

the broadcast at home, well

played.

I hear the Alternative Cricket

Commentary were on fine form

and I’m sure you thought of a

better way to spend $60 while

drinking your beers from the

fridge.

To those who didn’t watch the

Black Clash in any form, we’ll

try and get you with the next

gimmick.

Chch United on player raid

Match

payments,

bonuses

offered

• By Gordon Findlater

MATCH PAYMENTS and

bonuses are luring Mainland

Premier League players to

second-tier Christchurch

United.

Several Ferrymead Bays

players have snubbed

Canterbury’s top competition for

the Canterbury Championship

League. Bays coach and former

All White, Danny Halligan, is

also a defector to Christchurch

United.

Halligan would not discuss

match payments and bonuses

with The Star yesterday.

“It’s not about money,” he said.

“Players have a right to decide

where they want to play. I left

Bays on good terms and I’m

not aware of any animosity

anywhere.

The carrot for the players

is the excitement of a new

challenge. They can see if

Christchurch United can get

promoted into the MPL then

they’ve got the facilities and

organisation to be a really strong

club again,” said Halligan.

One of the new Christchurch

United recruits told The Star

yesterday players would receive

match payments between $120-

$160 this season, which includes

a win bonus and a further $500

if the club won promotion from

the CCL to the MPL. He was not

being paid to play at Ferrymead

Bays.

Christchurch United is backed

by Russian businessman Slava

Meyn, who has developed

a leading sports facility in

Yaldhurst.

The poaching has caused a stir

among Mainland clubs. Some

told The Star there was even talk

of boycotting games involving

Christchurch United teams at a

youth level.

None would be identified but

there was a lot of frustration

over the way Christchurch

United was recruiting.

The Bays players recruited

include MPL record goal-scorer

Michael White,

2018 Bays player

of the year Mark

Peers, and former

MPL golden boot

and player of the

year-winner Shawn

O’Brien.

Bays defender

Chris Murphy, who

has played more

than 300 games for

the club and has

previously turned

down multiple

offers to join other

clubs, says Bays will

recover from the player losses.

“We’ve got a few loyal guys,

which is good to see, but the

offers are flying thick and fast

even for myself,” said Murphy.

They’re dropping down a

level. If that’s what they want

Danny Halligan

to do then it maybe shows their

aspirations . . . Christchurch

United are giving it a good shot

and have enticed people, which

is good for them, but we’re the

ones who are affected by it.”

Cashmere Technical coach

Dean Hutchinson said he

understood Christchurch United

had aspirations in

wanting to return to

the MPL.

“On one hand

that’s a good thing,

but it’s an amateur

league so if it is true

that they’re directly

paying players,

then Mainland

[Football] have to

do something about

it,” said Hutchinson.

Mainland

Football chief

executive Julian

Bowden says it’s

not unusual for players and

managers to move around clubs,

which can create rumours.

But as an amateur league

there are rules around player

payments.

Of a Christchurch United

RECRUIT: MPL

record

goal-scorer

Michael White

(114 goals)

will lead

Christchurch

United’s strike

force this

season.

recruit telling The Star

players would receive a $500

promotion bonus, Bowden said:

“That’s something we would

probably want to talk to the club

about.”

“Players can be reimbursed

for expenses. If any players at

any clubs were getting income

it would be to reimburse things

like gear, travel expenses or

physio appointments,” said

Bowden.

“Under FIFA criteria, players

can be reimbursed up to a

certain level. There’s some

principles around that in the

national league and those

principals flow down into our

regional league.”

Former Canterbury United

and MPL stalwart Stu Kelly

– whose Halswell United side

have seen their CCL promotion

chances drop with Christchurch

United’s new additions – said

players being paid is nothing

new.

“In the rules you can’t [pay

players] but nobody’s tracking

it. In the North Island it’s been

even worse over the years, “ he

said.

MULTI-TALENTED: Robbie

Deans will represent

Canterbury at over 60s in

Cricket. ​

Cricket

call-up

for Deans

• By Gordon Findlater

THE CANTERBURY over 60s

cricket team have recruited

Robbie Deans ahead of their push

for a three-peat of provincial

titles in Lower Hutt starting this

weekend.

Deans, who coaches Japanese

rugby club Panasonic Wild

Knights, returned to New Zealand

this week and was given a

spot in the Canterbury team who

have gone undefeated in two years

on their way to the titles.

The Canterbury team is captained

by Bob Masefield. The

team includes former Canterbury

players Andrew Nuttall and Craig

Thiele, as well as John Wright’s

brother Hamish and cousin Hugh

Wright.

Deans represented New Zealand

at secondary school level in

cricket and played for Canterbury

at under-23 level.

“I think there’s a cricket net or

facility not far from him where he

lives in Japan, so I think he gets a

bit of practice in,” said Nuttall.

The over 60s tournament will

run from February 3-7 in Lower

Hutt between all first class districts.

At the end, two teams will be

selected play in their national

provincial championships in

November in Adelaide.

‘We knocked

the bastard off’

SIX GOLFERS completed a

unique round of golf, completing

18 holes on 18 different

Canterbury courses in one day.

McLeans Island member Peter

Davidson and a group of friends

came up with the idea.

The format was to play in a

sequence where the first hole

would be No 1 on that course,

and at the second course visited

they would play No 2, until

finally they would be playing no

18 at the 18th course of the day.

At 7am they teed off at

Rangiora Golf Club and at

6.30pm they finished at Tai Tapu

having covered over 200km

across the city, and walking 20

km.

They played a stableford round

with the best in the group having

43 points.

The feeling, in the words of Sir

Edmund Hillary and re-released

by one of the group on the 18th

green: “Awesome day . . . We

knocked the bastard off.”

BIG DAY: Avondale club manager Richard Sinclair (far left) joins Matt Egan, Mike Scott, Gary

Lay, Dennis Lay, Peter Davidson, Michael Sharp for a mid round beer. ​

Versatility key to

Sportage’s success

ONE OF MY work

colleagues has a reasonably

new Kia Sportage sport

utility vehicle.

I’ve often talked to her

about her choice, she says it

suits her busy lifestyle with

a youngster in tow, as well

as recreational interests.

It’s also a nice driving

experience, the high,

upright seating position

offers a commanding view

and everything is laid out

internally for ease of use.

There are many reasons

why the Sportage has been

a high-selling SUV in this

country, it appeals to families

who want the practicality

of a wagon without it

being too big.

The Sportage sits

squarely in the mid-size

SUV bracket, think Toyota

RAV4 or Honda CRV. Sure,

there are other SUVs in the

Kia stable such as Sorento

and Carnival, however, the

Sportage is there for those

who don’t need huge.

Kia Motors has a new

Sportage for 2019. Well, it’s

pretty much a facelift really,

there’s new cosmetic detailing

both internally and

externally and the fitment

of additional equipment,

much of it unseen for safety

purposes.

Beneath, not a lot has

changed mechanically, the

petrol and diesel engine

options are all a carryover.

However, there has been

considerable suspension

development work carried

out to suit down under

conditions; effectively it

means there’s a choice

of a soft setting in some

models, while a new GT

Line incorporates spring

and damper rates biased

towards sporty.

There are two petrol

powertrain options in

Sportage, a 2-litre unit

and a 2.4-litre unit, while

a 2-litre diesel rounds out

the range, bearing in mind

there is also the option of

four-wheel-drive in some

variants.

The evaluation car was

a new front-drive-only

GT Line Urban model

with the entry-level

2-litre petrol power plant.

The engine is a beauty

in terms of smoothness

and refinement, and it

is channelled through a

paddle-shift six-speed

automatic transmission,

the whole driveline reeks of

sophistication.

The engine is rated by

Kia at 114kW and 192Nm.

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

KIA SPORTAGE: Freshened up with a facelift.

Even though it loses the

strong torque spread of

its 2.4-litre stablemate,

the 1999cc unit has solid

bottom end strength

realised at 4000rpm. As a

consequence, mid-range

acceleration is ushered in

respectably, and with the

lively behaviour common

with twin-camshaft engines

it also likes to have the

revs up offering a vibrant

response to accelerator

request, and quick downshifts

through the transmission.

• Price – Kia Sportage

GT Urban, $45,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4495mm;

width, 1855mm;

height, 1655mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

1999cc,

114kW, 192Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.1sec

• Fuel usage –

8.2l/100km

There are three driverselectable

engine management

protocols in the

Sportage. I used normal

mostly, but there are eco

and sport settings which,

quite obviously, refer to

economical engine management

or for more

response when sport mode

is selected.

The latter is useful for

when highway overtakes

need to be made, but

otherwise the standard

selection is, to my way of

thinking, the most suitable

all-round setting.

Kia also claims an 8.2-

litre per 100km (35mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage

rating. During my time

with the evaluation car

the average readout was

constantly sitting at around

9.8l/100km (29mpg), that

figure aided by a 6l/100km

(47mpg) instantaneous

figure sitting at a steady

100km/h, the engine a little

busy at 2000rpm.

What I find most surprising

about the modern SUV

is the way they handle, they

have become almost carlike

in the way they have

been engineered to tackle

a corner. A lot of that has

to do with the development

work I mentioned in my

introduction, there is a definite

firmness underneath,

but it doesn’t greatly affect

ride comfort.

The big benefit is the

way the Sportage steers

and behaves in a corner,

even without four-wheeldrive

the suspension is a

complex fully independent

type and that allows good

freedom of movement and

strong body balance.

The feel from behind the

wheel is one of confidence,

when pointed at a corner

there is solid steering feedback

with sharp and accurate

turn-in.

In terms of specification,

the Sportage GT Line

Urban wants for little. At

$45,990 it gets all of Kia’s

high-tech safety kit and

plenty for comfort and

convenience, including

for 2019 new 19in wheels,

touch screen in-cabin display,

panoramic sun roof

and LED lighting network.

As an aside, the Sportage

range starts at just $35,990

which, by my way of thinking,

is fabulous value.

There’s been a lot of fresh

and interesting product

coming out of the Kia

factories in recent years.

The company has a lot of

appealing product which

is very suitable for New

Zealand roads and drivers.

And, of course, with the

Niro range there are also

hybrids and electric vehicles

which are much the

talking point today.

However, the Sportage

is there for those who like

traditional. I’m sure those

who do choose the midsize

crossover will, just like

my colleague, find it to be a

great choice.

calm, cool oasis

If your home has become more of a steaming sauna rather than

an oasis of cool, these intelligent tips will help turn the tables

for a more comfortable climate.

PRoTEcT WiNDoWs

Prevent the harsh summer rays from

penetrating through windows, which bake

its occupants with reflective window film.

This provides an instant and simple solution

if planting trees or installing awnings aren’t an

option.

clEVER sTRaTEGiEs

Shutting windows and pulling the drapes

on hot days can go a long way to keeping

temperatures comfortable for when you

return home at the end of the working

day.

FaN FiRsT

Use fans as your first port of call instead of

immediately reaching for the air conditioning

remote. Fans use less electricity and can also

be used in conjunction with air conditioning

to further help circulate the air.

THERmosTaT sENsE

Setting your air conditioning system too cool

and you’ll risk increasing your electricity bill.

setting it to somewhere in the mid-twenties

will keep the climate comfortable without

you freezing or overheating.

Room BY Room

Save energy and money by simply cooling

the one or two rooms you mainly inhabit.

as in winter when we aim to keep the

heat from escaping, in summer it’s equally

important to keep the cool air contained,

so make sure all doors and windows are

adequately sealed. A cost-effective method

is by installing weather strips available from

your local hardware store.

GREaT oUTDooRs

When the heat of the day passes, your

backyard is the ideal location to hang out

and keep cool. Cook over the barbeque and

make the most of dining al fresco while you

can.

maiNTaiN YoUR aPPliaNcEs

Keep fans, air vents and filters free of dust

and bacteria by cleaning them regularly. Keep

the outdoor part of your air conditioning

unit shielded from the sun by creating some

shade with clever plantings.

BUYER GUiDEliNEs

look out for the highest star rating for

energy efficiency to save you money in the

long run. Also consider the size of the room

you’ll be cooling to ensure you get the right

size that will be capable of getting the job

done.

coloUR sENsE

Believe it or not, painting the exterior walls

and roof a lighter colour will keep the inside

cooler by reflecting the heat.

REPlacE WiNDoWs

If you’re undergoing renovations it’s the

perfect time to replace aluminium frames, as

they conduct heat. Opt for a design which

allows for the maximum allowance for air to

circulate.

THE Hornby Club is pleased to announce

that the Chalmers iconic buffet is coming

back.

The buffet will be a monthly event

taking place in the Sports Hall.

The catering team couldn’t bear the

thought of a whole year without a buffet,

so it’s back!” said Paul Inwood, General

Manager.

The first buffet takes place this Sunday

with following buffet dates Sunday 4th

March, Sunday 7th April, Sunday 5th May,

and Sunday 9th June. Get in now and

book. Tables will fill fast! The buffet

operates from 5-8pm. Adults $27 and

children (5-12yrs) $1 per year of age.

The original Chalmers Restaurant closed

the end of October as part of the Club’s

massive redevelopment project.

Demolition of the entire west wing is

almost complete and the exciting rebuild is

about to start.

In the meantime the Club Cafe provides

excellent dining options - from cabinet

food to full sized plated meals. Situated

downstairs, the Club Cafe offers affordable,

family friendly dining 7 days a week for

lunch and dinner. Fresh daily specials,

dreamy desserts and a great atmosphere

will ensure you return again and again!

Pop in with the family, friends or

colleagues - there is something for

everyone. Gluten free and vegetarian

options are also available.

The Club has two big shows coming up

in February. Celebrated international

singer-songwriter Sharon O’Neill on

Sunday 17th February and multi award

winning country music star, Jody Direen

on Saturday 23rd February.

Sharon will be showcasing ‘the songs

and their stories’ with a live 9 piece band.

2pm start. Tickets $69.

Jody is often referred to as NZ’s ‘Queen

of Country Music’’. the Wanaka born

songstress has had a flourishing career to

date. She tours frequently including regular

trips to Nashville and Australia. 8pm start.

Tickets $20.

And a reminder that, despite the

redevelopment, the Club still has function

and meeting rooms available for hire.

Enquiries welcome.
