AFTER 20 years of caring for

some of Christchurch’s most

vulnerable flying residents,

Jackie Stevenson is ready to

spread her own wings.

The 72-year-old from

Parklands says she’s on the

lookout for someone who shares

her love for birds to take her

place nursing them back to

health.

Mrs Stevenson gave up her

job as a nurse when she realised

birds were her true passion.

Since then, her home has been

transformed into a bird rescue

centre.

However, Mrs Stevenson

said the long days and sleepless

Teenage

taggers

caught

by police

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

POLICE HAVE caught six

youths they believe were involved

in a tagging spree throughout

Halswell.

They want people who have

had their properties or vehicles

tagged to call police in a bid to

gauge the extent of the vandalism

committed.

Police are dealing with six

youths aged between 13-15

involved with the vandalism that

occurred on January 28.

At least two cars and three

fences were vandalised, along with

a tool shed broken into at Aidanfield

where an axe was stolen and

found lodged into a lawn.

It is suspected further tagging

took place in the early hours of

Tuesday morning.

The vandalism took place in the

Aidanfield/Westlake/Halswell

area. Hornby police youth aid

worker Senior Constable Bruce

Ward said police are uncertain

about to the extent of the damage

done. But he said in the past police

have found people do not report

incidents of tagging when they

should be.

LOGAN DUNN might only be 15, but he’s

already making his mark on the bowling

green.

On page 14 today, we highlight the

youngster’s victory in the Canterbury

men’s first and second first year championship.

Logan comes from good bowls stock. His father Jason is a

handy player and those genes have also rubbed off onto Logan’s

16-year-old brother Jordan.

In the semi-final, Logan prevailed Jordan. No doubt those two

will continue to face each other in the years to come.

Logan was in the Halswell four which was runner up in the

open section. It also included his father and Darryl Hawker,

the current Canterbury coach, and part of the great Halswell

premier rugby league team during the 1980s.

Visiting teens likely troublemakers

• By Louis Day

VISITING teenagers may have

been the troublemakers at the

Sumner skate ramp over the

holidays.

Residents have posted on the

Sumner Community Facebook

group, angry at some of the

behaviour at the Nayland St

skate ramp.

One woman said she was

abused by a group of teenagers

believed to be about 14, before

they threatened to run the

woman and her three-year-old

son over

with their

skateboards.

Another

woman said

she had objects

thrown at

her car on a

few occasions

when driving

Franco Lovrich

her children

home at night.

Both women did not wish to

speak to Southern View.

Red Snapper fish ’n’ chip

shop owner Adam Jenkins was

convinced the teenagers causing

trouble were visitors.

“There was a bunch of riff-raff

out here that day, they came in

here and got lunch, not kids I

have seen before.”

ISSUES: Visiting teenagers are suspected to be behind the incidents at the Sumner skate

ramp.

Mr Jenkins said the teenagers

were smoking, drinking and

fighting among themselves

throughout the day.

There have also been issues

with skateboarders causing

problems and littering at the

Sumner Centre, across the road

from the ramp. One group had

been told to leave the centre.

Sergeant Franco Lovrich said

police were not aware of the

incidents.

“The issue with Facebook is

that we don’t monitor social

media sites, it is imperative

people report directly to us.

That way we can get an accurate

judgement of offences as they

occur and from there we can

prioritise resources.”

Why Riccarton Rd is being upgraded

The city council answers

some of the most common

questions about why it is

upgrading Riccarton Rd

Major roadworks to begin this

month will involve upgrading

damaged underground pipes

and rebuilding the road to

accommodate bus priority

measures. The nearly two-year

project is not expected to be

completed until December 2020.

Why does this work have to

be done now?

The sewer pipes that run underneath

Riccarton Rd are nearly

100 years old. They have reached

the end of their lifespan and

need replacing. If the city council

delays replacing them, there is a

risk they could fail, resulting in

major disruption and roadworks.

The road surface is also in poor

condition, with damage evident

in many areas. At the same time

as resurfacing, bus priority will

be added measures so that buses

can travel more easily along Riccarton

Rd, which will cut travel

times along this busy route.

Why is it going to take almost

two years?

If the city council is only

resurfacing the road it could

complete the upgrade in a much

shorter time frame. It is because

• By Louis Day

TENDERS WILL are being

called to repair the earthquakedamaged

Scarborough Clock

Tower.

The city council wants to

appoint one contractor to

undertake the repairs of the

Scarborough and New Brighton

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

TURMOIL: The city council has answered some of the most common questions on why

Riccarton Rd needs to be upgraded.

it needs to also replace the water

and sewer pipes that run beneath

the road that this project is likely

to take until December 2020 to

complete.

What’s the most time-consuming

aspect of the work?

The sewer pipe is located 4m

below the road so a very deep

trench has to be dug. The trench

sides need to be supported so it is

a time-consuming process. Work

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 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

on the trench can only proceed

about 1m a day. Contractors are

starting at three different work

sites to speed up the process.

Can’t you speed-up the

work by working at night and

weekends?

Contractors will be working

nights and weekends when

required, but during the sewer

pipework, it is dangerous to work

at night because good lighting

company and if we ran our

company like that 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.

TICKING: The scaffolding

around the Scarborough

Clock Tower is costing

is needed. There are also motels

and a rest home along the route

and night work would be very

disruptive for them so it is a case

of balancing the needs of the

whole community.

Why are you putting a treelined

median strip down the

middle?

In 2015, the city council asked

the community for views on two

upgrade options – one with a

tree-lined median and one without.

The option with trees along

a central median was preferred.

This option was subsequently

recommended by the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board to the city council’s

infrastructure, transport and

environment committee, which

approved the scheme in August

2015. The tree-lined median

uses space made available by the

removal of car parks. There is

still one lane of traffic in each direction,

as there is now. The treelined

median should help to slow

traffic speeds and make the area

safer for pedestrians, cyclists and

drivers. The trees, along with

other streetscape enhancements,

such as new furniture, paving

and landscaping, will also make

this part of central Riccarton

more attractive and a destination

rather than solely a transport

corridor.

Do other parts of Riccarton

Rd need upgrading?

The stretch of Riccarton

Rd between Deans Ave and

Harakeke St has already been

upgraded. No other work of

this scale is planned but some

improvements to intersections

and other facilities, such as for

cycling, are scheduled to occur

over the next 10 years.

Removal

of trees

upsets

campers

• By Louis Day

ABOUT 200 trees have

been removed at Okains Bay

camping ground.

The city council removed

trees from the area as part of

their Reserve Landscape Plan

last June.

Additional trees on the

western side of the camping

ground also had to be removed ​

due to damage caused by salt

water inundation in last year’s

king tides.

But the felling of the pine,

gum and macrocarpa trees

has left some campers

“heartbroken”.

One camper who had been

going to the camping ground

for more than 40 years said they

were “heartbroken” when they

returned to the area over the

holidays.

“It’s taken away a lot of

natural shelter, it looks terrible,

they have left a lot of the trees

just lying around. They have left

some of the stumps of up to 1m

just sticking out of the ground

in some places.”

The camper said the removal

of the trees had left campers

exposed to the sun and wind.

“Trees that have been killed

by the seawater in high tide

haven’t been removed, yet all of

these other ones have.”

Head of recreation, sports

and events Nigel Cox said

they were working to replace

some of the trees which had

been felled.

“A community planting

day was held in September. A

large number of native trees

were planted into newlyestablished

raised gardens.

More planting in line with the

Reserve Landscape Plan will be

completed this coming year.”

Mrs Stevenson estimated she

support coming from donations.

Mrs Stevenson received $100

the Department of Conservation,

and dog and cat biscuits to mash

up and feed to the birds from the

SPCA and Dogwatch.

She said cats were the main

cause of injuries to birds. But

•From page 1

“Half a dozen kids can tag a

lot of places so we want to be on

Constable Ward said.

Several youths had gone to

a house in Halswell

on Sunday night and

unbeknownst to the

parent they snuck out

in the night, picked up

more youths, consumed

alcohol and spraypainted

properties, he

said. The tagging was

brought to the police’s

attention by one of the

parents who had seen one of the

boys covered in spray paint.

Readers respond to a

Southern View article about

a note left on the doorstep

of several dog owners in

Lyttelton threatening to call

dog control

Kaye Le Fleur – What’s

wrong with that note? I have had

a few dogs and if I received a note

like that I would

take responsibility

and make sure my

dog was not left

alone and getting

bored, I would

make sure the dog

would not be able to

wander, and be very

happy that someone

had taken the time

to notify me before notifying the

authorities. Nothing worse than

repeated barking dogs, dog poo

and wandering dogs. Just be a

responsible owner, simple.

Philip Baker – If the dog is

out roaming then fair enough.

Jade Mulcahy – Brilliant

idea. Most dog owners think

their dog is lovely and think

everyone else does too – wrong.

Good thing to do to avoid

unnecessary confrontation, at

least they didn’t just ring dog

control first.

Ashleigh Jarden – Keep

your dogs on your property and

you won’t have an issue.

Freedom campers at reserve frustrate residents

• By Louis Day

Cassey Millward – I

understand the roaming, as

that is a safety issue and no way

should dogs be taking themselves

on little adventures. But most

dogs bark a few times throughout

the day. I have two dogs and

they bark at each other when

they are playing or if someone

arrives. I have neighbours either

side who also have

dogs that bark. None

persistently, but a few

times throughout

the day you will

hear barking for

short periods of

time. People mow

lawns and cut hedges

through the day. You

can’t expect silence

throughout the day, it’s totally

unreasonable. I am very grateful

for the neighbours I have, as

some people sound like a total

nightmare.

Cathryn Rose Creamer –

Fair enough if a dog is roaming,

but someone trying to nap in

the afternoon and dogs barking

– get ear plugs. Don’t want to

live near dogs? Then move into

the country where your closest

neighbours are 500m away.

James Boswell – All of

the things in the letter apply to

almost every cat owner I know

too. I’m not condoning the

behaviour of the owner of this

DIAMOND Harbour residents

are calling for tighter freedom

camping restrictions at Stoddart

Point Reserve.

Residents have been frustrated

by freedom campers throwing

their rubbish on the ground only

a few metres away from empty

bins.

Congestion at the reserve means

it is also difficult to find a car park

in the morning before commuters

catch the ferry to work. Freedom

campers are currently restricted

to staying for up to two nights in

any 30-day period in certified selfcontained

vehicles.

However, Diamond Harbour

Community Association

chairman Richard Suggate said

the current restrictions were not

enough.

“That area is not big enough to

cope with those sort of numbers.

A few years ago it wasn’t a

problem but now the numbers

are too high.”

Diamond Harbour resident

Cheryl Glen said she had grown

more and more frustrated after

continuing to see rubbish left on

the reserve by freedom campers.

“There were times where the

bins would be empty and there

cat owners allowed to let their

cats and defecating on other

Tina Harding – Pretty

simple, be aware of your dogs –

not every one is approachable.

Sian Vermeer – No one

would still be rubbish left on the

ground.”

Ms Glen said the number of

freedom campers at the reserve

often made it impossible for her

to find a park before catching the

ferry to work.

“Most mornings I can’t find a

park, where are we meant to park

to go to catch the ferry and go to

City council head of strategic

Photography exhibition

showcases the

‘many faces’ of Linwood

• By Matt Slaughter

ALASDAIR WRIGHT is

combining his 55-year love affair

with cameras and photography

with his love for the area he

lives in.

The Linwood

resident is one of 12

photographers with

work on display at an

exhibition focusing on

the community and its

diversity.

The Many Faces of the

Inner City East/Linwood

exhibition was set to

open yesterday at the

Linwood Community

Arts Centre and Eastside Gallery.

Wright, 59, said he has been

living in Linwood for seven years

and has seen it go through huge

changes since the earthquakes.

He said the aim of his

photographs is to document

what Linwood was like before the

changes occurred and the past is

forgotten.

“It’s important to record things

because when you think I’ll

take that photo now and don’t

have a camera and go back a few

days or years later, the case may

Alasdair Wright

be that they’re gone.” Wright

said Linwood’s population

and landscape has changed.

He said showcasing this in the

photographs was key.

“It’s important to see the

changing face of Linwood because

we’ve got a wide gamut of

society around here.”

“You can travel the

world without even

having to leave home.”

Linwood Community

Arts Centre and Eastside

Gallery exhibition coordinator

Shirley Scarlett

said the display was

about Linwood residents

like Wright “defining

the neighbourhood on their own

terms.”

Ms Scarlett said the exhibition

was also about breaking down the

stereotypes that could sometimes

have a negative effect on how

others viewed Linwood.

“The exhibition focuses on

celebrating and delving deeper

into a community that doesn’t

always get the best coverage.”

It was about “capturing the

good and the beautiful alongside

the challenges and concerns” of

the community, she said

THE SEASIDE Toy Library

hopes an open day will make it

a haven for toy lovers and their

families.

The library, which operates

out of St Luke’s Church in South

New Brighton, will host the

event on March 9 from 9.30amnoon.

It aims to promote the library

to people in the area and attract

new members.

Seaside Toy Library chairman

Andy Dimond said it was one

of many businesses in the east

that had a hard time after the

earthquakes.

“The library did struggle

financially and struggled with

attracting membership and

volunteers.”

Since then, Mr Dimond said

the toy library had employed a

part-time librarian and this had

helped it gain some stability.

However, he said word needed

to get out if the library should be

used to its full potential.

“There are a lot of young

families in the area who don’t

know about the toy library,

how much it costs and when

we operate, so this is a good

opportunity to promote

the library and also build

relationships in the local area,”

he said.

Teen bowls his way to men’s title

• By Gordon Findlater

TEENAGER Logan Dunn has

shown he has a bright future in

bowls.

The 15-year-old Halswell

player defeated Jonathan

Truesdale, of Cust, 21-10 to win

the Bowls Canterbury men’s first

and second year centre title.

Logan comes from a talented

bowls family. In the semi-final,

he defeated his 16-year-old

brother, Jordan, 21-12.

“He usually beats me when

we’re practicing but I got on top

of him that day,” said Logan.

He also teamed up with

his father, Jason Dunn, in

the Halswell fours team and

made the final before losing to

Rangiora 4-20.

“As soon as we step on the

green, he’s just another player.

He accepts that and he wouldn’t

want it any other way either,”

said Jason.

Logan completed a trio of

final appearances by making

his way to the under-20 singles

final which was taken out by

Rangiora’s Rebecca Jelfs 21-19 in

a tight match.

The Bowls Canterbury centre

championships began with

round-robin play in November

before the finals weekend at

Parklands from January 26-27.

Although the family represent

Halswell, they travel to the club

for inter-club each Saturday from

their home in Hawarden.

FAMILY TIES: As well as winning the Bowls Canterbury first and second year centre title,

Logan Dunn (right) finished second in the men’s fours with Darryl Hawker (left), his father Jason

Dunn and Paul Matheson.

“That’s just given the kids

the best opportunity to fulfil

what they want to in the game.

There’s not enough up here in

our area. Now they’ve got good,

hard competitive bowlers to go

against and get their game to the

next level,” said Jason, who is a

well know greyhound trainer. He

grew up in Sydney and pursued

bowls into his mid-20s. He

played representative bowls for

New South Wales but gave the

sport away when he moved to

Christchurch in 2007.

Logan didn’t know about

bowls until being introduced to

it by his father when he took him

to the green two years ago.

“It just clicked and I’ve liked

it from day dot,” said Logan. “I

played rugby for a year but I’m

too small for that.”

Canterbury men’s coach

Darryl Hawker – who played in a

Halswell fours team with Logan

– believes the 15-year-old could

SPORTS

go a long way in bowls.

“I think he could have a

big future in the game, his

commitment to improving as

a bowler is impressive,” said

Hawker.

Practicing three to four times

a week, Logan dreams of playing

the sport professionally one day.

“I want to be world champion,”

he said.

If his progression in the sport

continues, the Sydney-born

bowler could find himself

having to make a choice between

representing New Zealand or

Australia one day.

The family’s current rugby

allegiances are split, with the

boys backing the Wallabies and

the girls cheering on the All

Blacks.

As for Logan’s future bowling

allegiances: “It all depends who

gives me the offer,” he said.

Other Halswell players to

make finals were Phil Austin,

who was defeated by Elmwood

Park’s Bruce Humphreys 15-21

in the men’s under-eight singles

final, while Rex Carpinter, John

Connolly and John Topham were

also beaten finalists in the over

60s triples. The title was won by

Elmwood Park 18-4.

Centuries old folk remedy supports

good health!

A fermented liquid health

tonic offers an array of

powerful health benefits. It is

none other than the popular

apple cider vinegar or ACV.

Since the time of Hippocrates – the “Father

of Medicine” – ACV has been renowned for its

curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS & FOLK

MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis reports how he

found that Vermonters who regularly consumed

ACV and Honey had excellent health with

many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the

farm even when well into their eighties. He also

noted the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients reporting almost

total relief after taking a course of the

mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider

vinegar counteracted calcium

deposits and helped the body

control calcium use. He also noted

that Vermonters who consumed

ACV and H around meal time

had excellent blood pressure and

circulation. The reason he found

was that protein foods thickened

the blood and vinegar thinned it.

As the blood thickens it cannot

pass as easily and quickly through

the blood vessels and capillaries. This

poor blood flow would reduce cellular

health by limiting nutrients to the cells

as well as waste elimination from the cells.

To prevent cell damage the body naturally

increases blood pressure but this puts more stress

on the blood vessels, organs and heart. Having

ACV and H with meals will help prevent protein

raising the blood pressure. It also contributes

to a feeling of greater well-being because the

thinner blood circulates quickly and more easily

through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found regular

consumption of CV and H to be an excellent

health tonic with numerous Health attributes.

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all the

goodness of the apple in a form that is readily

accepted by the bodyGood health starts with good

digestion and assimilation of nutrients. ACV taken

before food will stimulate and promote healthy

digestion and assimilation of vital nutrients for

good health. A well-functioning digestive system

helps prevent disease by neutralising any toxic

substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all ACV is produced

in the traditional way and results are likely to

prove disappointing with these other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV & ACV with 20%

Manuka Honey is produced in Canterbury from

Organic whole apples in the traditional way. It is

double strength so you can use less.

Device to prevent

snoring

Why put up with broken sleep, when

help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance

that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and

dry and raw throats.

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth

for comfort, and a follow up service is

provided.

Denise Lim has been involved with

Snores for 22 years and has had a 98%

success rate with

people using the

appliance. Snoring

can be a health

hazard, causing

sleep apnoea, where

the person actually

stops breathing for

short periods.

It can cause

short-term memory

loss, tiredness and

contribute to high

blood pressure.

The Snorex

device does not feel

restrictive, is noninvasive

and carries

a money-back

guarantee.

Many people are referred by ear, nose

and throat specialists, however, anyone can

phone for an appointment.

in the body, providing the strength

and resilience associated with youth,

beauty and wellness. The body’s natural

collagen production decreases with

age resulting in many signs of aging,

such as flaccid skin, wrinkles, ligament

and tendon injuries and aching joints.

Collagen supplementation is one of

the most fundamental things a person

can do to prevent premature aging and

promote youthful vitality.

NEOCELL are the industry leaders

in research on collagen supplementation.

Through advanced research they have

perfected a way to hydrolyse collagen and

effectively reduce its molecular weight this

improving the absorption of collagen into

the blood stream by over 90%.

A clinical study on NEOCELL

COLLAGEN has shown skin hydration to

increase an average of 21% and up to 50%,

with 92% of test subjects experiencing

firmer, softer skin. Most people taking

NEOCELL COLLAGEN reported seeing

visible improvements within two weeks.

Collagen supplementation provides

the nutrients necessary to support the

body’s collagen supply. It can help reduce

fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin

elasticity, support building of strong bones

and teeth, strengthen the nails and hair,

and is vital for muscle growth, It also

assists weight loss by helping burn fat

for energy, promotes wound healing by

supporting the regeneration of healthy

tissue as well as help support overall

health.

information is available from the

Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s
