Shootout forces cops

to carry

firearms

• By Sophie Cornish

ALL FRONTLINE police in

Christchurch are carrying

firearms in the aftermath of

Tuesday night’s suburban

shootout.

The district’s police chief,

Superintendent John Price, has

taken the step to ensure the safety

of police and the public, he told

The Star yesterday.

It comes as police seek a man

connected with a 33-year-old

gunman who fired on police

in Richmond about 7.30pm on

Tuesday. Armed police returned

fire and he was seriously wounded.

He remains in a serious condition

in Christchurch Hospital.

The 33-year-old was being

sought in relation to an incident

in Wainoni in the early hours of

Saturday morning when shots

were fired from a moving car at

two police vehicles.

Superintendent Price said a

second man in the vehicle was

being sought by police. Because

of the potential danger he posed,

all frontline officers would carry

firearms. Normally firearms are

stored in the boot of police

vehicles.

He said the general arming

order was reviewed before each

police shift went on duty.

“We only have one person in

custody . . . the unknown risk

and the fact there has been three

incidents where we have had

shooting at officers, I decided to

make the call to general arm all

staff,” Superintendent Price said.

“Obviously we don’t want to

create too much fear for the community.

We will locate this person

pretty quickly . . . we have some

positive lines of inquiry.”

Police were fired on in

Richmond’s Eveleyn Couzins

Ave after they had pursued the

33-year-old’s vehicle from Breezes

Rd, Aranui.

The fleeing vehicle was driven

at a police officer laying road

spikes, and then it came to a halt.

The gunman then got out of his

vehicle and began firing at police.

Several onlookers witnessed

police and the offender trading

shots and said the gunman “confidently”

opened fire at the officers.

Witness Cathy Allden was

attending a community meeting

nearby when the building she was

in went into lockdown.

The first thing we heard was

all the sirens getting closer and

closer,” she told the New Zealand

Herald.

Baby sign classes a hit

it won’t meet the May deadline

for stopping chlorination.

COOPER MAY only be six

months old but he can already

tell his mum when he’s hungry.

He also gets excited when he’s

asked if he wants a go in his Jolly

Cooper’s mum Nikohl Upton

has been teaching her son sign

language since he less than four

“We started signing ‘milk’

when he was about 12 weeks old.

It only took a week for him to

learn it. We slowly add signs as

he grows, guided by his interest.

Now that he eats food we sign

‘food’, ‘eat’, ‘more’ and ‘finished’.”

For the last three weeks Mrs

Upton has also been running her

own Kids Sign classes to teach

other parents and their children

to communicate through sign

language.

“I set it up because there is

nothing on offer in Christchurch

like it . . . it’s fun, beautiful and

easy to sign. But there are no

classes for children like it. There

are classes for adults, but not

kids,” she said.

“Your baby’s brain develops

a lot faster than their ability to

talk. It lessens frustration and

gives them a way to talk when

they can’t.”

The St Andrew’s College primary

school teacher said she is using

her maternity leave to follow her

“passion” which is sign language.

“I had my own child and I

knew I would do it with my own

child . . . but I just wanted to share

what I’m doing with others.”

Longer tram rides coming

• By Julia Evans

THE CENTRAL city tramline

will be extended along High St

next year.

Instead of stopping at its

current terminus at the High and

Lichfield Sts intersection, the city

council is working on plans for

the tram to head into the SALT

District, bound by St Asaph,

Lichfield and Tuam Sts.

“Several options for the tram

extension have been considered,

including forming a loop on

the northern side of Tuam St

to allow the tram to turn from

Poplar St into High St, and for

the extension of the tram track

into High St south of Tuam St,”

city council head of transport

Richard Osborne said.

The public will be consulted on

the concept plans in April before

construction starts next year. But

Mr Osborne said all the options

allow for a tram stop closer to the

Tuam and High Sts intersection.

“This will help activate the

SALT District by bringing tram

passengers closer to the area,” he

said.

The city council has $3.08

million budgeted for the

extension in its Long Term Plan.

New tram tracks had been laid

to extend the line along Lichfield

TRACKING: The tram will go further along High St into the

The tram extension project

He said this project would

involve completing the track and

installing overhead wires.

CRUISE SHIPS in Akaroa have

Larger ships have begun

Obscene graffiti problem at playground

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

GRAFFITI SHOWING male

genitalia is ruining young families’

trips to the Margaret Mahy Family

Playground.

Mother-of-three Lauren Tyrrell,

who takes her sons Ollie, Finn and

Lincoln to the playground as a treat,

said the marks, thought to have

been made by Lime scooters on the

playground’s pavers, are awful.

“This kind of spoils it. It’s such a

shame, it’s such a nice playground,”

she said.

“It’ll just be some young dicks

ruining it for someone else.”

She said the marks made the

playground look “tacky” and they

should be removed as soon as

possible.

“Some kids would be old enough

to look at that and know what it is.”

The graffiti did not come off

after the city council attempted to

remove it with a water blaster, a

spokesperson said.

The marks remain in place. We

are continuing to explore options to

resolve this,” the spokesperson said.

Pavers and footpaths around the

city have had similar black marks

left on them since the Californian

e-scooter company launched the

service in October. As well as the

Margaret Mahy playground, marks

have been left at Hagley Park,

Victoria Square and on a number of

streets.

However, the city council has no

plans to get rid of the marks, other

than those at the playground.

City council manager city streets

maintenance Mark Pinner said scuff

or skids marks originate from many

sources, including skateboards,

scooters (not only Lime scooters)

and bicycles.

These marks often wear off over

time,” he said.

Lime did not respond to questions

from The Star.

Where to now for Lime scooters?

• By Julia Evans

IT’S D-DAY for Lime scooters.

City councillors may give

the final seal of approval today to

grant a one-year permit for the

e-scooter company to remain on

the city’s streets.

If they approve the permit,

Lime will pay a $86.25 per scooter

annual rental fee and be able

boost its fleet from 700 scooters

to 1000.

This would give them a

dominant share of the city-wide

limit of 1600 e-scooters.

The fee is based on the amount

of space the scooters would take

up on the footpath.

But it’s a different story in

Auckland and Dunedin.

Its city councils took the

scooters off the streets last week

after safety concerns over a

software glitch which caused

the wheels to randomly lock up

and riders to be thrown over the

handle bars.

However, the city council said it

has received assurances that Lime

has fixed the issue.

“(Lime) have also advised that

any reported defective e-scooters

have been removed from service,”

city council planning and

strategic planning head David

Griffiths said.

“We will continue to monitor

the situation, as will Lime, to

ensure the scooters remain safe to

use.”

More than a quarter of

Christchurch residents made

400,000 trips on the scooters since

they were launched on a trial basis

in October, for which Lime paid

$136. Feedback on the scooters has

been overwhelmingly positive. A

city council survey found 93 per

cent of users called for them to stay.

earthquake repairs have

been done properly?

Brownlee chairman’s bid for council

• By Julia Evans

GERRY Brownlee’s electorate

chairman is standing for the city

council.

Sam MacDonald, who is

also the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

chairman, will campaign for the

vacant Waimairi Ward seat in the

October local body elections.

Current Waimairi Ward city

councillor Raf Manji is not seeking

re-election.

Mr MacDonald, a chartered accountant,

said he wants to bring

his private sector experience to

the council table.

“I’m really happy with my

performance on the board, but

what I’m hearing is that people

really aren’t happy with council

spending,” he said.

The answer to the council’s

problems cannot continue to be

charging ratepayers more. This

council desperately needs to get

back to basics.”

Mr Brownlee, National MP for

Ilam, said Mr MacDonald had

proved himself to be “successful”

and “accessible” in his community

board role.

“He’s a young guy that has a

bit of a vision for the direction

council needs to go . . . his ac-

Sam MacDonald

counting background will help

get ratepayers’ best value for

money,” he said.

“He’s a brilliant and loyal electorate

chair.”

Mr MacDonald was first

elected to the community board

in 2016 and took up the deputy

chairman role. He was then

promoted to chairman when

Jake McLellan

Debbie Mora

David Cartwright stepped down

last year.

His Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

colleague Aaron Campbell

is also contemplating running

for the Harewood Ward against

incumbent Aaron Keown, or

Environment Canterbury.

“I’m still considering my options,

but I’m definitely running

Aaron Campbell

John Stringer

for the board again,” he said.

Mr Campbell was campaign

secretary for Mayor Lianne Dalziel

in the 2016 election.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member John Stringer will

contest Mike Davidson’s Papanui

Ward seat.

The former Conservative Party

board member unsuccessfully

ran against Cr Davidson in 2016.

“I am encouraged to stand

again. I think there should be a

strong local voice on the council.”

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board member Debbie

Mora is weighing up her options.

She’s likely to stand for the

city council, but says she has yet

to decide whether she will take

on Halswell Ward city councillor

Anne Galloway or Hornby

Ward’s Jimmy Chen.

“I’ve been asked by many

Alexandra Davids

people to step up. There are a lot

of people that aren’t feeling very

happy with the council.”

Ms Mora said she had even

been asked to run for mayor, but

had ruled that out.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board deputy chairman

Jake McLellan is hoping to

nab the Labour-aligned People’s

Choice ticket and run for council

in the Central Ward, held by

Deon Swiggs.

Alexandra Davids, on the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board, is likely to

launch another bid for spot on

the city council.

In the 2016 and 2013 elections

she ran unsuccessfully against

long-time Linwood Ward city

councillor Yani Johanson.

But Ms Davids said Cr Johanson

was a “tough contender”.

It also

includes

aspects of

gang lifestyle and culture which

can contribute to child abuse

and neglect, family violence and

alcohol and drug dependency.

It comes after confrontation

between two gangs in

Christchurch resulted in a

violent brawl at a public event.

One person was hit in the

head with a claw hammer and

several others were stabbed

when the Hells Angels and The

Outlaws clashed at about noon

on Sunday.

The incident took place at the

Sound of Thunder Motorcycle

event at Mike Pero Motorsport

Park in Templeton.

Detective Senior Sergeant

Greg Cottam said yesterday

police are continuing to speak

with witnesses in relation to the

incident and no arrests have

been made.

The information gathered

is about gang members, gang

associates, family members of

gang members and associates,

victims (of gangs or gang

members) and the victim’s

family relations.

The data shared includes,

information about personal

property owned, contact

details, communications with

others, criminal investigations,

education, employment, family

relationships and financial

information such as income,

debts, financial relationships

and transactions.

Gang associations, health and

disability, housing, appearance,

immigration, importing and

exporting of goods, social

assistance’s including benefits,

tax, travels, and the threat to

risk or safety of others is also

included.

It was approved under the

Privacy Order 2018 and police

are the leading agency for the

agreement.

The agreement involves the

police, Accident Compensation

Corporation, Department

of Corrections, Department

of Internal Affairs, Housing

New Zealand, Inland Revenue

Department, New Zealand

Customers Service, Ministry

of Business, Innovation and

Employment, Ministry of

Education, Ministry of Health,

Ministry of Social Development

and Oranga Tamariki, Ministry

Sociologist and gang expert

Jarrod Gilbert said previously

New Zealand’s state agencies

haven’t had a “particularly good

grasp on gangs.”

“I think that the understanding

has matured and it can only

be a good thing, if we don’t understand

them, chances are we

won’t tackle them appropriately.

“Gangs are a very complex,

very difficult issue so the

more information we have to

understand them the better,” he

said.

Head

Hunters MC

The Head

Hunters

Motorcycle

Club has a

chapter in

Christchurch after patching

over the Epitaph Riders and

taking their Sockburn gang pad

in 2015.

The Epitaph Riders, one of

the city’s oldest motorcycle

clubs, reportedly burnt its

colours and shut down, its

former members joining the

Head Hunters.

The Head Hunters formed

in 1967 as a street gang in

Glen Innes, Auckland. Police

believe the gang has more

than 150 patched members

nationally, some involved in drug

manufacturing and supply, debt

collection and intimidation.

In October 2017, police raided

the gang pad in Sockburn

following an extensive

investigation into a prominent

member of the gang in Auckland,

Wayne Doyle.

Police froze hundreds of

thousands of dollars worth of

assets belonging to the gang.

that are operating in Canterbury

Police took civil action

against the gang – taking

assets including motorcycles

and the Vickerys Rd property,

under the Criminal Proceeds

(Recovery) Act 2009.

Bandidos

MC

In 2013,

police

acknowledged

the

presence of the

international motorcycle gang in

the city.

The gang first appeared in New

Zealand in 2012, establishing a

chapter in South Auckland.

It now reportedly has chapters

in Wellington, Dunedin and

Invercargill.

Hells Angels MC

The Hells Angels website lists a

presence in the

city since 2018.

The

notorious

gang is spread

across five

continents and

57 countries with 466 charters.

Last year, it celebrated its 100th

anniversary.

It has charters in Auckland,

Wanganui, Nelson, South

Auckland and the central North

Island.

Highway 61 MC

Founded in 1968, the gang

has chapters

in Auckland,

Hastings, Rotorua,

Northland,

Wellington

and

Christchurch, and by 2008 had

expanded into Brisbane, Sydney

and the Gold Coast in eastern

Australia.

The Highway 61 patch consists

of a skeleton holding onto ape

hangers (handlebars) with the

road, or highway, seen below the

skull.

King Cobras

The central Auckland-based

gang has

origins born

out of the

Polynesian

Panthers in the

early 1970s.

The group

has links and associates in South

Auckland, Whangarei and

North Shore, Hutt Valley and

Wellington. It has a presence

in Christchurch, but it is not

clear when or how it became

established here.

The King Cobras Facebook

page lists the gang as called

King Cobra AIGA, saying its

foundation is AIGA, which in

Samoan translates to family.

The gang made headlines

in October last year after a

member, Luke Riddell, was shot

between Norwood and Charing

Cross.

A 25-year-old man will

defend charges of murder in a

three-week High Court trial in

February 2020.

Black Power

The gang

was formed

as the ‘Black

Bulls’ by

Reitu Harris

and Maori

youth in

Wellington

around 1970, in response to the

rival Mongrel Mob gang and

white power associated gangs.

The Black Bulls changed its

name to Black Power in 1971

and a Black Power chapter was

established in Auckland.

The gang took off from

1975 and spread around the

country. Like its name, its

symbol, the clenched fist, is

inspired by the US Black Power

movement, and its colours are

blue and black.

Mongrel

Mob

Currently

New Zealand’s

largest gang,

it was formed

and organised

in Hastings in 1968.

Similar to its Black Power

rivals, it is primarily made up of

Maori and Pacific Islanders. It

has been involved in organised

crime and several murders.

The

Tribesmen

The

Tribesmen,

a Maori

motorcycle

gang, emerged

in the 1980s in Otara, South

Auckland.

It was formed by ex-members

of the Stormtroopers, a

Northland-based gang.

The Tribesmen have chapters

set up in North Canterbury,

as well as Otara, Rotorua and

Murupara in the Bay of Plenty.

Killer Beez

A feeder youth street gang

formed from The Tribesmen,

mainly based in South Auckland.

It was headed by Josh Marsters,

formerly the vice-president of the

Tribesmen.

Rebels MC

Since forming

in Brisbane

in 1969, the

Rebels rapidly

expanded,

including establishing a presence

in New Zealand in January

2011. From August 2014 to June

2016, their headquarters was

in a warehouse in Vagues Rd,

Papanui. It was raided by police

and shut down in June 2016,

when police said there was no

evidence the group remained in

the city.

Devils Henchmen

This gang began in Timaru

and appeared in Christchurch

soon after their former archrivals

the Epitaph Riders around

1969.

• By Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

A SPAT HAS broken out

between two Facebook

community pages.

Greig Russell has hit

out at the administrators

of the Halswell Community

Group page for being

“ousted” from the group of

nearly 11,000 members for

speaking his mind.

He was removed

from the page

when he posted

a mobile phone

number online. Mr

Russell has since

set up a new page

called Halswell

Community Page

Uncensored with

a catchphrase

of #LETSMAKE-

HALSWELLGREATA-

GAIN

They ousted me out of

the community. Short of

pitchforks and tiki torches

that is what they have

done,” he said.

Mr Russell was returning

home from a fishing

trip in Greta Valley when

he came across a group

of men stranded due to

having a flat tyre. He lent

the men his spare wheel to

enable them to get home

• By Anan Zaki

FULTON HOGAN will

have two more weeks to

respond to requests for

more information about

its controversial quarry

plans near Templeton and

Weedons.

Environment

Canterbury and the Selwyn

District Council asked

Fulton Hogan in December

Chrys Horn

and got one of their mobile

numbers. Mr Russell said

the men had promised

to return the spare wheel

the next day, but nothing

eventuated and they would

not return his phone calls

and blocked his number.

To pressure the man, he

asked members of the

Halswell Community

Group to phone the number

and ask for the

wheel’s return. It

was returned after

about a week.

But Halswell

Community Project

chairwoman

and one of the

administrators

Chrys Horn said

it was harassment

and would not be

tolerated. “The trouble is

people put up stuff and

they make allegations. We

have had quite a few times

that has happened and the

poor person on the receiving

end has no idea what

was going on”.

But Mr Russell responded,

saying it “absolutely”

was not harassment. He

said he did something

about his wheel being stolen

and he got a result.

“Someone was trying to

rip me off. You put yourself

for additional details about

its proposed quarry at a

170ha site bordered by

Curraghs, Dawsons, Jones

and Maddisons Rds.

Fulton Hogan told the

two councils in January

that it would respond to

the requests by today.

But yesterday, ECan

said Fulton Hogan asked

for more time to provide

the most up-to-date

ARGUMENT:

Halswell

resident

Greig

Russell

said he

was ousted

out of the

Halswell

Community

Group

Facebook

page.

Spat between online

community groups

in my situation. You have

got a phone number that

is all you have got. What

are you meant to do if they

block you?”

He said there is no

consistency in the Halswell

Community Group’s rules.

But Dr Horn said it is the

Halswell Community Project’s

page and it has clear

rules people need to follow.

“If people step outside

those and they don’t take

no for an answer, then we

block them and that is just

the way the world works.

Dr Horn said it is a large

group to monitor and

because the administrators

have a lot going on in their

lives, they do not always

catch posts breaking their

rules right away. The group

has a wide range of policies

including group members

being unable to advertise

businesses, abuse or make

racial comments, complain

about organisations or

make posts containing

sexual references or innuendo.

Dr Horn said the

group doesn’t bear many

grudges and she would

like to reinstate Mr Russell

when things settle down

and if the administrators

agree.

Fulton Hogan given more

time to explain quarry plan

information, including

a revised draft cleanfill

management plan and a

visual impact assessment.

ECan said Fulton

Hogan’s response is

now expected by March

12.

Fulton Hogan submitted

a resource consent

application to quarry near

Templeton and Weedons in

late November.

TOURISTS ARE driving

too slow in Canterbury

because they don’t know

what an open road sign

means.

Senior Sergeant Pete

Stills is calling on the signs

to be removed and replaced

with signs stating the speed

limit.

Open roads are marked

with a black stripe in a

white circle and have a

speed limit of 100km/h.

“I don’t like open road

signs. So many people

nowadays don’t know

what they are, particularly

foreign drivers.”

“I stopped a couple

of Chinese girls . . . last

year and they were doing

70km/h because that was

the last actual sign they had

seen, although they had

gone past the open road

sign but they didn’t know

what it was,” he said.

“We should just have a

speed limit on the sign so

that there’s no confusion

on what the speed limit is.”

However, Senior Sergeant

Stills’ pleas have fallen

on deaf ears at the New

Zealand Transport Agency

which had no plans to

Pete Stills

change the way the signs

look.

Said an NZTA

spokeswoman: “The derestricted

sign has been an

option for road controlling

authorities to sign the

default open road speed

limit in New Zealand for

many years. It was retained

when we went to 100km/h

as the upper speed limit on

the open road.”

However, a rental car

company said it would

support the initiative to

improve safety.

Said a Thrifty Car Rental

spokeswoman: “A numeric

sign is more internationally

versatile and would work

for both New Zealand and

international drivers.”

principal adviser

regulations Mark Stockdale

also agreed some tourists

may not be familiar with

the open road sign.

“Although they [tourists]

are encouraged to

familiarise themselves with

New Zealand road rules

and road rule collateral is

provided by many rental

companies,” Mr Stockdale

said.

He said open road signs

are still authorised signs

and other factors may be

in play when it comes to

tourists driving slowly.

Said Mr Stockdale: “The

fact that some visiting

drivers are travelling

below the speed limit may

also suggest that they are

driving at a speed that feels

comfortable to them based

on the look and feel of the

road.”

Debbie Munro

From NASA and Universal Studios

Debbie Munro has

worked on spacesuits

for astronauts and

robotic dinosaurs for

Universal Studios. Now

the professor is a senior

lecturer in mechanical

engineering at Canterbury

University. She talks to

Sophie Cornish about

her 25 years working in

engineering

What was it like working for

NASA?

Working for NASA was a

dream, I loved it there. I worked

on some wonderful projects, one

of them was a test machine for

the AX5 spacesuit, an all-metal

spacesuit that looks like the

Michelin Man. It has these large

baring rings that allow you to

move freely in any direction. An

advantage of an all-metal suit

over a fabric suit is that when you

are in zero gravity and the suit

is pressurised, you are still able

to bend. If you use fabric, it acts

more like a sausage, you can’t

bend or move.

There were some complex

joints in there, since it is all

metal. You have the problem

where an astronaut can apply

pressure inside the suit onto

the bearings. So they wanted

me to design a test fixture that

could simulate the motion

to see if it would last and be

reliable. So I started working

on that and that paper got

accepted to NASA’s Aero Space

Mechanism Symposium, and I

had the opportunity to present

that, which was really exciting.

I worked on a bunch of other

projects, like the infra-red

telescope that’s mounted in the

SOFIA aircraft.

Robotic dinosaurs at

Universal Studios Hollywood?

What’s that all about?

My ex-husband got an

opportunity to work for a

company in Utah. Eventually I

started applying for positions

at Utah and found a really

great opportunity at Sarcos.

They made a bunch of robotic

devices, including prosthetic

arms for amputees. If you have

been to Disneyland and seen

the Abraham Lincoln robot

that gives the speech, that was

designed by Sarcos. They hired

me on to help them develop their

computer systems to work on

some of the dinosaurs.

I worked on three or four of

the dinosaurs. Two of them were

the mother and baby ultrasaurus.

It’s a made up name that is

used in the movie – it’s like a

brontosaurus. As part of the

theme for the ride, they wanted

the dinosaur to burst out of the

water and knock the boat offcourse.

I did the heads for those

dinosaurs and a lift mechanism

and the legs on the T-Rex.

Where are you originally

from in the United States and

how did your career begin?

I grew up in California in a

small town called Placerville.

I was planning on going into

dentistry. But in my junior

year in high school, we had

this presentation by NASA

and I learnt about the space

programme. At the end, they said

‘we really need all of you to study

engineering.’ I didn’t really know

what that word meant. I went and

looked it up and was so amazed

that this thing existed. Here I was

taking advanced woodwork in

high school, wanting to build and

design things and I didn’t know

you could do that for a living. I

studied mechanical engineering

at the University of the Pacific,

which is in Stockton, California.

Then I did my masters at

Stanford University while I was

working for the NASA Ames

Research Centre. Then I travelled

a lot, I spent two years in Japan,

working for a company there

and I still speak Japanese quite

well. Then I moved to Utah

and started working for Sarcos,

making the robotic dinosaurs,

which was a lot of fun. I worked

on that project for a couple of

years. Then I switched to the

orthopaedic design field and

starting designing hip and

knee implants for total joint

replacements. When we moved

back to California I continued in

that field, I liked it a lot.

I wanted to learn more, so

I decided to go back and get

my doctorate in biomedical

engineering. From there I

realised that I love teaching, so

I switched to academia and that

moved me to the University of

Portland, in Oregon, where I

spent the last 10 years.

What led you to New Zealand?

My research was in developing

sensors for measuring the

progress of fracture healing, in

particular spinal fusion. I really

love designing these microscopic

sensors that you can implant in

the body, they are wireless and

battery-free and can be used

in so many different ways to

provide information about the

medical devices that we have put

into people’s bodies. I had the

opportunity to have my research

funded full-time.

to Canty Uni

So I left university and

started my own business.

I worked on sensor

development for two years.

That was great, I loved that.

But after two years, they

weren’t able to continue

funding the project and

I had an opportunity

to either continue as an

independent business,

return to industry or go

back into academia. After

some soul-searching,

I realised I really love

teaching and wanted to

continue my research in an

academic setting. I wanted

to work some place that

was really beautiful. I was

very fortunate to receive

the position at Canterbury

University. I knew I wanted

to come, even before I had

visited here. My daughter

had been here on a bus

tour a few years earlier and

my parents have visited

by cruise. They wanted

an in-person interview in

April last year. I asked if I

could stay an extra week,

so I could see what it was

like to live here. I didn’t

do any touristy things, I

rode the bus, went grocery

shopping, rented a car and

explored neighbourhoods.

I am very fond of the ocean

and I fell in love with

Sumner.

What is your favourite

place in New Zealand and

favourite part of Kiwi

culture?

I love Lake Tekapo and

the Mt John Observatory.

The other place I love

that we hiked is The Old

Ghost Rd. We hiked 85km

over five days, staying

in huts along the way.

It was such a beautiful

breath-taking experience.

What I like best about

the culture is it’s a more

relaxed pace. Americans

and Europeans tend to

be chronically in a hurry.

It’s so nice to escape that

and be just as productive

but not put that burden

upon yourself. People are

also really friendly, not

friendly in a polite way

but in an authentic and

generally curious way. I

have been able to strike up

conversations with anyone.

I had a 20min conversation

with a lady working at a

gas station because she

heard my accent. No one

is worried about spending

time to have a chat.

What is biomechanics

all about?

It’s the study of human

motion. There are several

times when you want to

study human motion. One

is in sports performance.

MAKING

DINOSAURS:

Debbie Munro

helped create

the Ultrasaur,

which is part

of Universal

Studios

Hollywood’s

Jurassic Park

ride,

You have an elite athlete

and they want to improve,

let’s say, their tennis game,

but you can’t tell what

they are doing wrong. So

you would collect data on

the athlete while they are

performing their sport.

You use video capture

of their motion, we have

force plates in the floor

that can tell us the loading

that they are applying

to their feet. We have all

types of sensors that can

tell us angles and forces

and muscle activation that

is occurring. We can use

this to help them improve

their performance. We can

also use it to design better

sports equipment and for

rehabilitation. We can also

use it to diagnoses disease

and how to perform an

intervention. For instance,

my colleague does analysis

of children to look for

early signs of cerebral

palsy. She can collect that

data, create a computer

3D animation and see if

cerebral palsy exists and

if it does, they can change

the bracing, plan the

surgery for the child and

see what the outcome will

look like before they apply

it. It improves outcomes

tremendously.

Toenail fungus, also known

as onychomycosis, includes

symptoms such as thickened

and discoloured toenails; itchy,

cracked and painful skin; and

the toenail can even become

separated from the nailbed.

In short, it is unattractive,

uncomfortable and persistent -

it can be difficult to treat, even

using topical products.

The team at Footprints Podiatry

at 7 Milton Street, Somerfield,

continue to bring cutting

edge podiatry technology to

Christchurch. Now, they have

the Lunula Laser, a revolutionary

treatment for toenail fungus

which is up to 93% effective,

pain-free and has no side effects.

Exclusive to Footprints Podiatry,

the Lunula Laser means an end

to embarrassment about your feet

and can be administered while the

patient is comfortably seated. It is

a low-level laser designed to target

onychomychosis and is completely

safe. The laser light targets the areas

of fungus and, with each foot taking

only 12 minutes, there is no downtime

from work or a busy lifestyle.

Simply make an appointment, call in,

and thirty minutes later you are back

out the door and able to carry on with

your day. The number of treatments

you will need depends on each case but

it can be effective after as few as four

visits.

Although the Lunula Laser is at

the forefront of technology for this

pervasive condition, podiatrists

Howard Nicholas, and Jacky Lee will

take the time to sit with you and make

sure that it is the right treatment for

you and your condition.

Notice of electricity delivery price changes

Orion New Zealand Limited owns and operates the electricity distribution network in central Canterbury (including Christchurch) between the Waimakariri and Rakaia

rivers, and from the Canterbury coast to Arthur’s Pass. We receive electricity from Transpower’s national grid at seven different locations and we distribute this electricity

to more than 200,000 homes and businesses.

Our service is delivery only (we don’t buy and sell the electricity, we just deliver it), and we charge electricity retailers on a wholesale basis for this delivery service.

Retailers, in turn, include this cost in their retail electricity prices – Orion’s distribution charges and Transpower’s transmission charges together represent about 40% of an

average household electricity bill. Both Orion’s and Transpower’s prices are regulated by the Commerce Commission and the changes set out in this schedule are made in

accordance with the terms of the regulation. For more information on our pricing, or Orion in general, visit www.oriongroup.co.nz or call us on 363 9898. For information

on the retail prices that appear on your electricity account, please contact your electricity retailer.

that wasn’t my experience at all. I

was having a great time working for

NASA, making robotic dinosaurs,

medical devices. I wanted to get the

word out and teaching is a great

way to do that. I wanted to change

perceptions. Going into a university

with students, they are young and

more impressionable. I wanted it

to be normal – not only for females

but males too – for woman to be in

engineering. Because after all, one

of their professors was female. I’ve

had my fair share of moments that

make me want to laugh and cry at

the same time. When I started at

the University of Portland, all my

mail got delivered to the school

of nursing, because they couldn’t

believe that I could possibly be in

engineering. Overall, it has been

fine. In general my colleagues have

made me feel very welcome and

accepted. I am hoping by started

this minor here in biomedical

engineering that we can attract more

female students.

I heard you had a bit of an

accident recently when playing

volleyball. What happened?

I like to get personally involved in

my work. My research is in fracture

healing and I have designed plates

very similar to the ones they stuck

in my wrists. In January, it was quiet

at the university and I was a little

bored. My colleague invited me to

play volleyball at lunch and I jumped

at the chance. We were having fun

playing three on three, laughing

and having a good time. I started

running backwards and I lost my

balance and put my hands back

and I immediately felt excruciating

pain, it was awful. I had a distal

radius fracture in both wrists. The

right one required surgery for what

is called a colles fracture, when you

fall on an outstretched hand and

break off the end of the radius –

mine broke into three pieces. I have

to say I appreciated what quality

care I have received throughout this

entire ordeal, especially with ACC.

The surgery went well; but there was

a lot of stress, ‘how am I going to

wash my hair?’ I had someone come

over three times a week and scrub

my hair for me, it was a luxury. I

had a taxi service to get me to and

from appointments. Had help with

grocery shopping, prepping food,

it takes such a burden off people to

not worry ‘how am I going to pay for

this?’

What’s next for you?

I am going to the Solomon

Islands this week. I am developing

work experience for biomedical

engineering students. A lot of

developing countries received

donated hospital equipment from

other places. Then the equipment

breaks down or needs cleaning and

they don’t know how to, so it just

gets stockpiled in a warehouse. So

what programmes like Engineering

World Health do is send students

to these countries and teach them

how to repair hospital equipment.

They teach them not only to repair

things but to teach local technicians

how to maintain them. So I sent two

students to Uganda this summer. I

am partnering with a New Zealand

NGO called Take My Hands and

Fisher and Paykel Healthcare to

establish our own programme in

the Pacific Islands, starting with the

Solomon Islands. We are travelling

there this week to meet with hospital

administrators.

MEMORIES: Vittoria with

her great-grandmother

Mary Miller at Christmas.

I LOST THE race against time

this week.

This term, Vittoria’s swimming

lessons are on a Monday. We

headed there as per normal, she

had a great time as per normal.

And then we went to wash and

change as per normal.

Here my race began. I had

forgotten to restock the nappy

bag.

It was like a lead weight in my

gut realising that. Honestly, it

was like some kind of nightmare

– I’m sure other parents will

sympathise.

Or else they’re thinking I’m

some kind of idiot, lying to

themselves that they’ve never

done it.

I know you have.

So I had to take a big risk; put

on Vittoria’s clothes and race

home to get a new nappy. Racing

against the possibility that she

would wet said clothes, or worse,

without any idea of when that

may or may not happen.

Like I said, nightmare.

So I rushed us home, hoping

against hope.

I lost anyway. I got home and

she needed some fresh clothes. A

I need to touch on

why last week was so hard on us

On Wednesday last week,

my Nan, Vittoria’s greatgrandmother,

Mary Miller passed

away at 91.

Her funeral was on Saturday,

She was an amazing woman,

fierce, determined, sharp as a tack

and as equally at home wearing

the most elegant clothes at high

society events as she was flinging

out her fishing line to haul in a

catch of blue cod wearing a man’s

flannel shirt.

Widowed young, my Nan

successfully raised six children

as a single mother in the 1950s.

Proper tough.

I am so glad that my daughter

and she could meet and that I

had her in my life for so long. I

dearly hope that I will be able to

teach Vittoria to be like her and to

given her.

Town hall opening caps off big weekend

I’M WEARING my red and

black as I write this week’s

column.

What a great weekend we

have just had – the South Island

Lantern Festival, the re-opening

of the Christchurch Town Hall,

the Crusaders victory over the

Hurricanes and then the Tactix

topped it all off with a win over

the Bay of Plenty Magic.

This weekend will see the

first concerts in the town hall,

featuring the Christchurch

Symphony Orchestra,

Shapeshifter and Marlon

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

Williams. And next Wednesday

there will be two free concerts,

hosted by Martin Setchell to

celebrate the return of the

Rieger Pipe Organ – one at

1.10pm and the other at 6pm.

There are no tickets so firstin,

first-served. This week’s

city council update on our

water supply improvement

programme shows the

extraordinary progress that has

been made. However, it looks

like we need to call on residents

to go a step further with

conserving water.

It is hard to turn individual

wellheads off in summer when

the use is high. But we need to

turn them off to repair them.

We are on track to get all

the chlorine out of the water.

However, it looks extremely

unlikely that we can remove it

all by mid-May, which is the

12-month term we set.

I have asked the manager of

the programme to provide a

report in April to advise exactly

how many pump stations will

require chlorination beyond

that period (at this stage it looks

like the number will be down

to three), so we can consider a

minimal extension rather than a

blanket one.

In the meantime, we all have

a role to play by being careful

with the water we use, so we can

get the job done.

Arthritis can’t keep dancer down

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

EVER SINCE she was a child,

there is nothing else Laurel

Gregory has wanted to do other

than perform on stage.

But it has been a “rocky” road

for the Christchurch 22-year-old,

who has been battling an autoimmune

disease for about 14

years, which has led to her being

diagnosed with arthritis.

Yet instead of feeling sorry

for herself, she has refused

to let anything stop her from

chasing her dream of becoming

a professional musical theatre

performer.

Gregory is currently training

in New York City at the

Broadway Dance Center as part

of a three-month programme.

Founded in 1984, the dance

school is known as one of the

first drop-in studios to be

established in the world and

has more than 80 teachers and

choreographers taking classes.

As part of her training,

Gregory is attending 12 classes a

week, including ballet, bodyArt

and contemporary dance. She

said she chose to attend the

school after needing a “fresh

perspective” on dancing.

“I didn’t trust my abilities and

I couldn’t stop worrying about

what people were thinking to the

point it would not allow me to

show what I can actually do as I

have to in an audition.”

Gregory has been passionate

about the arts since a young age,

starting ballet at six.

But it was when she was

accepted into the National

Academy of Singing and

Dramatic Art in 2015 that she

began to train heavily in ballet,

jazz and tap.

“In terms of my love of musical

theatre, it was never a choice.

There’s nothing else I want to do

and I need to do it,” she said.

When Gregory was eight, the

skin on her hands and feet began

to break and she recalls having

to walk on her toes because her

heels hurt so much.

But it wasn’t

until she began to

get arthritis in her

hands at the age

of 14 that she was

officially diagnosed

with rheumatoid and

psoriatic arthritis.

Gregory said both

conditions are caused

by the auto-immune

disease, psoriasis,

which causes a rapid

build-up of skin cells.

Before she was

diagnosed, she

was told her skin

condition was a result

of dermatitis. But

now she is taking

an oral immune

system suppressant,

methotrexate,

which has kept her

condition under

control. The only

time she ever stopped

dancing was when

she attempted to take

a break from her medication

in 2015 to find a more natural

way to control her condition.

When she stopped taking it her

psoriasis came back “horribly”

and she had to spend three

months away from dance.

“This time (away from dance)

allowed me to realise how much

I actually enjoyed dancing rather

than just doing it,” she said.

Gregory said she is grateful the

medication gives her the ability

to do what she wants with her

life.

DETERMINED: Nothing has stopped Laurel Gregory from

following her dreams of becoming a professional dancer

and performer.

HEARING WEEK 3 - 9 March 2019

Are hearing loss and

dementia connected?

Why choose

rechargeable

hearing aids?

SIMPLICITY – No batteries to purchase,

saving you on-going costs.

Given the choice to replace the battery or

use a rechargeable battery, most aid wearers

would rather just recharge their hearing

device.

Simplicity is preferable for things people

use every day and hearing aids are no

exception.

CONVENIENCE – Charge hearing

aids overnight. Place them in the charger

and technology does the rest. (Similar to

electric toothbrush).

Some chargers will dehumidify or dry

out your aids overnight whilst charging.

EASE OF USE – FULLY AUTOMATED

CHARGING - Individuals with poor

vision, limited motor control, manual

Hearing aids have historically been

something which many people have

avoided for as long as possible. One of

the most common phrases heard from

sufferers of hearing loss is, “I don’t need

hearing aids; it’s just that people don’t

speak clearly anymore!”. The most

common reasons for delay in addressing a

dexterity issues encounter significant

problems changing batteries.

Easier to place aids in the charging case

at night and put them on in the morning

fully charged.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY –

No need to dispose of dead batteries every

week.

Rechargeable batteries can be reused

hundreds of times and have specific

disposable guidelines.

Rechargeable hearing aids are more

user friendly than disposable or nonrechargeable

batteries.

No Mess. No Fuss. Simply charge and

go.

hearing loss are concerns about how much

hearing aids will cost, what they will look

like and if they will work for you. These

fears are now being overcome.

A leading Danish hearing aid

manufacturer has recently launched a

brand new range of instruments which

Deteriorating hearing makes it

increasingly difficult for us to communicate

and connect with family, friends and

colleagues. When we mishear or have

to ask people to repeat themselves

regularly, frustration and annoyance can

occur. Outsiders can often react with

misunderstanding. All this eats away at our

self-confidence and can have a negative

impact on our general well-being and our

quality of life as a whole. But can hearing

loss increase your chances of developing

dementia?

Research by the John Hopkins School

of Medicine showed a strong association

between hearing loss and both the

earlier onset and more serious degrees of

dementia. Although the reason for the link

between the two conditions is unknown,

the investigators suggest that a common

pathology may underlie both, or that the

strain of decoding sounds over the years

may overwhelm the brains of people with

hearing loss, leaving them more vulnerable

to dementia. They also speculate hearing

loss could lead to dementia by making

individuals more socially isolated, a known

risk factor for dementia and other cognitive

disorders. These effects were noted even

with cases of mild hearing impairment.

There are many causes of hearing loss:

noise exposure, medical, genetic or simply

unknown factors. Five to ten percent of all

cases in adults can be treated medically or

surgically, however, one thing is clear: you

are not alone. Today, one in six people have

some degree of hearing impairment.

Could we do something to reduce the

effects of hearing loss, cognitive decline

and possibly delay the onset of dementia?

Absolutely! Have your hearing tested, talk

to your audiologist about your options and

enjoy a longer cognitively active life by

staying connected to those that mean the

most to you.

5 STEPS TO

SELF-LOVE

1BECOME MINDFUL. People who have more self-love

tend to know what they think, feel and want. They are

mindful of who they are and act on this knowledge,

rather than on what others want for them.

2PRACTICE GOOD SELF-CARE. You will love yourself

more, when you take better care of your basic needs.

People feeling self-love nourish themselves daily through

healthy activities, like sound nutrition, exercise, proper

sleep, intimacy and healthy social interactions.

3SET BOUNDARIES. You’ll love yourself more when

you set limits or say no to things that deplete or harm

you physically, emotionally or spiritually, or express

poorly who you are.

LOVE SELF

2015 NZ Disability

Information Centre

of the Year

Support and Resources for Independent Living

Can we help you or someone you support?

4PROTECT YOURSELF. Bring the right people into

your life.

5FORGIVE YOURSELF. We humans can be so hard on

ourselves. The downside of taking responsibility for our

actions is punishing ourselves too much for mistakes in

learning and growing. You have to accept your humanness

(the fact that you are not perfect), before you can truly love

yourself. Practice being less hard on yourself when you make a

mistake. Remember, there are no failures, if you have learned and

grown from your mistakes; there are only lessons learned.

6LIVE INTENTIONALLY. You will accept and love

yourself more, whatever is happening in your life, when

you live with purpose and design. If you choose one or

two of these self-love actions to work on, you will begin

to accept and love yourself more. Love is old as time and a natural

human emotion. It is true that you can only love a person as much

as you love yourself. The more self-love you have for yourself, the

better prepared you are for healthy relating and well-being.

DO YOU LOVE

YOURSELF?

Self-love is a ‘hot’ global topic and

is the single most popular term

that gets tossed around in every

day conversation. “You have to love

yourself more.” “Why don’t you love

yourself?” “If you only loved yourself,

this wouldn’t have happened to you.”

“You can’t love another person until

you love yourself first.” These are just

a few of the self-love directives that we

give or receive.

Self-love is important to living well. It

influences every decision in life from

our activities, to our relationships,

to our interests and everything in

between.

What exactly is self-love? It can’t be

bought at the store. It can’t be ordered

online. Can you acquire more self-love

by reading a personal development

book or something inspirational? Or,

do we look to relationships for selflove?

Self-love is a state of appreciation for

oneself that grows from actions which

support our physical, psychological

and spiritual growth. Self-love is

dynamic; it grows by actions that

mature us. When we act in ways that

expand our self-love, we begin to better

accept our weaknesses as well as our

strengths. Which leads us to the gentle

self-love of befriending ourselves and

coming to a knowingness that ‘I am

enough’ at wherever I am in life at this

very moment.

BY RAIL

Where would be the best place to

start planning a journey by rail?

Thanks to New Zealand’s pioneers who created railroads through

some of the most inaccessible areas of the South Island, Dunedin

Railways can travel to the most remote, yet beautiful locations,

so holidaymakers are spoilt for choice! Departing from either

Christchurch or Dunedin, this iconic company offers three rail

touring options: the West Coast, East Coast, or our Southern

tour.

Which rail touring option is best?

Departing from Christchurch, the Southern Rail Tour has a real

historic focus and takes guests as far as Stewart Island. The West

Coast tour is for those who love the mountains and breathtaking

vistas, but if ocean views are more your style, the East Coast tour

travels from Dunedin to Picton, culminating in a cruise in the

Queen Charlotte Sounds

Are there opportunities to look

around the stop-over destinations

independently?

Dunedin Railways prides itself on looking after guests’ every

need, but they don’t overwhelm people with strict, inflexible

itineraries, so guests are able to explore the destinations

independently or select one of their add-on tour options.

LOVE FAMILY

DON’T LEAVE YOUR LOVED

ONES WITHOUT A WILL

Having a Will in place not only ensures that your hard-earned assets are

administered how you want them to be, and how any loved ones, such as

your partner and children, are to be looked after on your passing, but it can

save a lot of time and expense also.

But what actually happens if you don’t have a Will? In this case, you are

said to have died ‘intestate’ and your estate (which includes everything you

own and all debts you owe) will be administered under the Administration

Act 1969. The Act sets out a formula for how your estate is to be divided

between your family. Needless to say this formula may not result in an ideal

outcome for everyone and may not reflect your wishes.

So if you do not have a Will yet, where do you start? The first thing to

consider is – who you want to be the executor of your estate. And secondly

– who you want to receive your estate. You may have specific items which

you wish to leave to specific people. You may want to make gifts to charities

as well as your family. Receiving advice as to those to whom you are legally

obliged to provide for will reduce the risk of a challenge after you have

passed away.

You may wish to look to the future and protect your home, which is usually

your main asset. Any property held as joint tenants automatically passes

to the survivor upon your death. You can change the ownership of your

home from joint tenants to what is known as tenants in common in equal

shares. Your share falls into your estate after your death and you can leave

directions in your Will, including for your partner to have the use of your

share for life or upon an earlier event that you stipulate. You then direct

who is to receive the benefit of your share of the property following the

death of your partner. This is useful in the situation of a second marriage

or relationship to protect your share of the asset for your children. It is also

useful in the circumstance of the surviving partner requiring rest home

care as under the current policy only the income from a life interest is

assessed in a subsidy application.

Once you have a Will in place, it is a good idea to keep a copy of it with

your important documents at home and let someone know where this is, it

can make the stressful time at your death a little easier for your loved ones.

Whether you are updating your Will or starting from scratch we have the

experience required to guide you through process. Give Phillipa Shaw at

Harmans a call on 03 352 2293 and we can make a time to sit down with

you and discuss your options.

UC AIMS TO CUT

CARBON FOOTPRINT

BY 45%

The University of Canterbury (UC) aims to cut its

carbon footprint by 45% with a low carbon energy

strategy that will significantly reduce its coal-based

heating provision.

The preparatory work for new carbon-neutral

biomass boilers on UC’s Ilam and Dovedale

campuses has begun.

Chancellor Dr John Wood says that UC is

committed to a cleaner, greener future.

“This has been an extensive journey and a huge

amount of work but it’s well worth it. Since 2010 the

University has reduced its greenhouse gas footprint

by 32%,” Dr Wood says.

The use of the new biomass boilers coupled with

improvements to the thermal efficiency of the

University’s buildings over the next 10 to 15 years

is expected to result in a further reduction in the

footprint by 45%. This is something we can be proud

of in time for UC’s 150th anniversary celebrations.”

In order to assess the most efficient and sustainable

low-carbon energy model, UC undertook a Low

Carbon Energy Feasibility Study (LCEFS) which

reviewed heating and cooling infrastructure

and buildings - including proposed and under

construction buildings - on both Ilam and Dovedale

campuses.

A ground source heat pump (GSHP) system was

recommended in the study and is being installed

in the new University of Canterbury Students’

Association (UCSA) building, Haere-roa, which is

under construction.

UC previously undertook an LCEFS which reviewed

both campuses’ heating and cooling infrastructure

and the University’s many legacy, proposed and

under construction buildings, to assess the most

efficient and sustainable low-carbon energy solution.

“Employing renewable energy sources in place

of fossil fuels, combined with improvements to

building thermal envelopes will drive down relative

energy intensity and, more significantly, decrease

the carbon footprint,” UC Energy Manager and

Carbon Accountant Tony Sellin says.

“UC will be well placed to respond to next year’s

Zero Carbon Act, supporting New Zealand’s

obligations and commitment to the Paris

Agreement. Repurposing existing building heating

solutions to use artesian water-based GSHP

technology means there will be capability to

eventually remove combustion heating entirely.”

The LCEFS has been developed into a Low Carbon

Energy Scheme Roadmap strategy, which identifies

the proposed new work on both campuses over the

short, medium and longer terms. Implementing the

biomass boilers will be completed in stages with

completion expected in 2021.

STRENGTH

ROUTINE

There are dozens of exercises you can do to build strength without having to set foot in

a gym. Here are a few examples for people who are just getting started.

Abdominal contractions

To increase strength in the abdominal muscles

1. Take a deep breath and tighten your abdominal muscles.

2. Hold for 3 breaths and then release the contraction.

3. Repeat 10 times.

Wall pushups

To increase strength in the chest and shoulders

1. Stand about 3 feet away from a wall, facing the wall, with your feet shoulder-width

apart.

2. Lean forward and place your hands flat on the wall, in line with your shoulders.

Your body should be in plank position, with your spine straight, not sagging or arched.

3. Lower your body toward the wall and then push back.

4. Repeat 10 times.

Pelvic tilts

To strengthen and stretch muscles in the lower back

1. Take a deep breath, tighten your buttocks, and tilt your hips slightly forward.

2. Hold for a 3-count.

3. Now tilt your hips back, and hold for 3 seconds. (It’s a very subtle movement.)

4. Repeat 8 to 12 times.

Shoulder blade squeeze

THE

MIGHTY

EVEREST

BY ROSS KIDDIE

I’ve had just two Ford Everest drives – one from the

previous generation, and the new model for 2019.

Interestingly, both have involved long road trips while

my wife and I have been holiday. The first was ticking

off a route I’d long had on my bucket list – the Great

Ocean Rd from Melbourne to Adelaide.

The most recent was to travel to Queenstown to see

January’s Gibbstson Valley Winery concert. Both

drives served to prove how comfortable and capable

the Everest is on a long journey.

However, there was one significant difference between

those two sport utility vehicles. The original Everest

used the 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo diesel, the new

model for 2019 has a 2-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel.

Ford is quick to point out the new engine is more

powerful and has significantly more torque than

the five-potter, and it is also claiming fuel economy

improvements. I’m not disputing any of that, the

2-litre engine is a real gem, it is refined, smooth and

uncharacteristically quiet for diesel and, for that

matter, it is a beauty.

Total power outputs are 157kW and 500Nm, against

143kW and 470Nm for the five. That’s a significant

gain, and when you are powering a vehicle that weighs

in at around 2500kg, any bit of extra oomph is useful.

The $79,990 Everest glides beautifully on the open

road, it is whisper quiet and even when the engine

is put under pressure it flows through the rev range

unimpeded.

A lot of the latter is due to the pairing of it to a new

10-speed transmission as it is also a revelation.

You could almost believe the transmission was

continuously variable, unless you are looking at the

gearshift position lights on the dash panel or moving

through the gears sequentially, you’d have no idea

what gear is selected, except to say it works through

the transmission seamlessly, and there’s never a point

where the wrong gear is selected. I carried out many

a highway overtake and the engine was always in the

sweet spot.

Even though it is based on the Ranger’s four-wheeldrive

system, ladder chassis and live rear axle, the

Everest has been softened considerably, the big sevenseater

lends itself to comfortable motion. There’s no

denying it is bulky, but it has space on the inside so

that comfort levels aren’t compromised. Sure, it’s a bit

of a juggle accessing the rear row of seats, but it is no

worse than many other seven-seaters.

Of course, if you have the rear seats folded the cargo

area is voluminous. My wife doesn’t travel light, so

even for just a couple of days we had much luggage,

yet it was swallowed easily. For the record, the rear row

of seats move forward electrically, which is just one

of the many things the Everest can claim as a luxury

vehicle. It arrives in one specification only – Titanium.

In that form it is loaded with goodies, and I guess

when you have a big vehicle on a solid foundation, as a

manufacturer you can throw everything into it

Ford dealers have long sold Everest, and Ranger,

knowing they have long had the engines with the

highest capacity in their respective segments of the

market: “Bigger is better,’’ has been a catchphrase.

Now it’s time for a change of direction, and while

the 2-litre unit is honest and up to the mark in every

aspect, buyers may take some convincing that it’s going

to work as well as the five-cylinder engine that has

powered Ranger, New Zealand’s best-selling motor

vehicle for the last four years.

Plants that will provide autumn colour

Whether you’re

flowers, Rachel Vogan

highlights the plants

that will put on a

good show in autumn

1. NEW: ISOTOMA

Two new varieties will hit the

shelves this autumn from the Fizz

’n’ Pop series. ‘Pretty in Pink’ and

‘Glowing Violet’ each produce

masses of star-shaped flowers

that cover the plants for months.

An Australian native, Isotoma

axillaris have finely cut, feathery,

bright-green foliage. They form

a tidy and compact dome about

30cm high and round. In colder

regions, they’re best grown in

patio tubs or planters that can be

moved to a sheltered spot over

winter. Alternatively, take a few

cuttings and plant them out in

the spring after all the hard frosts.

Full sun is best.

2. HEUCHERELLA ‘HAPPY

HOUR LIME’

A cross of Heuchera and

Tiarella, Heucherella are versatile

perennials that withstand heat

and cold, while being wonderful

gap-filling and ground-covering

plants. ‘Happy Hour Lime’ makes

a statement all year round with

its glowing lime-green leaves.

Planted in groups, ‘Happy Hour

Lime’ provides contrast to other

garden plants and has a real

look-at-me presence. Ideal in

sun or partial shade, they also

makes a tremendous patio plant

specimen. Over summer and

autumn, spikes of creamy white

flowers appear.

3. GAURA LINDHEIMERI

‘SO WHITE’

This butterfly bush is a ripper, as it

flowers continuously throughout

summer until the end of autumn.

The whimsical white flowers

appear on the end of tall, arching

stems, looking almost cloudlike

as they move in the breeze.

Hardy and reliable, ‘So White’

adds a clean fresh punch of white

to brighten up sunny garden

borders. While it will thrive in

a pot, it tends to preform better

in the garden. Plant en masse to

maximise the impact.

4. RUDBECKIA FULGIDA

‘LITTLE GOLDSTAR’

This wee gem of a plant is as

bright as a button. Numerous

stems of vibrant golden-yellow

flowers boast centres punctuated

with ebony-black seed cones.

Released a couple of seasons

ago, ‘Little Goldstar’ has become

popular due to its long flowering

period – until the end of autumn

to early winter. It reaches kneeheight,

40cm or so, and forms a

round mound, from which the

stems of flowers appear. Team

it up with other autumn flowers

such as zinnia, coreopsis, gaura,

echinacea, salvia or penstemon.

5. ROSE ‘MY GIRL’

Valentine’s Day was two weeks

ago, but this glorious hybrid

tea rose ‘My Girl’ could still be

a contender for a special lady

in your life. ‘My Girl’ will keep

blooming for months to come.

Sam McGredy bred this one by

crossing ‘Northland’ with ‘Big

Purple’. With its beautiful sweet

fragrance and perfectly formed

blooms of lilac pink, it’s a real

charmer and, better still, the

flowers do not bleach or fade

in the sun. ‘My Girl’ has a

compact habit in relation to

other bush roses, making it

ideal to use at the front of a

rose border, backed by tall

types like ‘Iceberg’. It is

described as disease resistant,

therefore requiring little

maintenance.

6. ECHEVERIA ‘VIOLET

QUEEN’

Succulents come in numerous

types, colours, shapes and sizes.

This one is pretty and catches

the eye with its dusky silvery

leaves, which curl up at the tips

to form neat rosettes of foliage.

Over the cooler months, the

plant changes colour to shades

of violet and mauve. Echeverias

have a shallow root system,

therefore they can grow in the

even the smallest pockets of

earth. Full fun or partial shade

are options, though the ground

does need to drain well as, like

many succulents, echeverias

loathe wet feet. Ideal for patio

planters, hanging baskets and

window boxes. Plants quickly

multiply and are easy to divide

into new plants.

RICH: Clockwise

from top left – Glowing

Violet, Little

Goldstar and My Girl

will all brighten your

garden during the

cooler months.

WEEK 7: The ease of running

The training programme you have followed has allowed

for a gradual increase in fitness. Generally you should cope

comfortably with the increase in mileage and intensity. If

you are struggling it can be because of an inefficient or poor

running technique. The best way to run is with an upright body

position. That might sound self-evident but it is not infrequent

that I see people running stooped forwards or leaning back

too far. You achieve an upright body position by pushing your

pelvis and chest slightly forward with your neck and head

nicely aligned with your spine. Keep your stride short so you

land under your body rather than ahead of it. Over striding is

CITY 2 SURF TRAINING PROGRAMME

the most common mistake made by runners of all levels. To

prevent over striding keep your stride short and try and land on

your mid-foot rather than on your heel. Once you start running

you can introduce a slight “total body” forward lean (so not just

the upper torso). This body position will give you the added

benefit of a gentle forward pull by the forces of gravity. In a

previous article I mentioned the importance of rhythm and that

is easier achieved with a shorter stride. Stay low to the ground

to minimise the forces of impact. Have your arms relaxed; bend

elbows with hands moving up and down in front of your chest

dictating the rhythm of your legs.

TIP OF THE WEEK

If you are hoping to

achieve some weight

loss as part of your

programme this is the

time that you should

see a shift in your

weight. One of the

tricky things regarding

weight loss through

exercise is that any loss of fat can be offset by

an increase in muscle bulk. As muscle tissue is

heavier than fat a net gain in weight can be the

result in the short term for some people. So if

you have not lost weight and you have kept to

a healthy diet, don’t despair as this might be the

main reason. Your own unique response to your

exercise regime will decide when you will start to

lose weight and how much you will lose. The good

news is that the health benefits from a regular

exercise programme are still the same, regardless

of the amount of weight you lose (or not).

Five golds in a knee brace

• By Gordon Findlater

WINNING FIVE gold medals

at a national championship is

hard enough.

However, promising kayaker

Olivia Brett did just that while

wearing a leg brace after tearing

her medial collateral ligament.

Brett, 17, dominated the under-18

girls division at the New

Zealand Canoe Sprint Championships

last weekend and has

now been selected to compete in

the Asia Pacific Sprint Cup on

Lake Karapiro in May.

Last month she tore the

ligament in her left knee while

walking up a hill at a training

camp at Lake Brunner. The

injury normally takes between

six weeks and three months to

fully heal but because kayaking

is a linear sport – meaning she

didn’t need to move her knee inwards

– she was able to compete.

“It was very painful when I

was competing but they told it

couldn’t get any worse so it was

up to me whether it was too

painful or not,” said Brett.

The decision to push through

the pain barrier resulted in gold

medals in the under-18 K1 200,

K1 500, K2 200, K2 500 and K4

500 events.

After representing New

Zealand in May her attention

will turn to the ICF junior and

under-23 canoe sprint world

championships in Romania in

August.

Last year she competed in the

under-18 division at the world

championships in Bulgaria. She

surpassed her own expectations

to qualify for the K1 200 A

final, where she placed ninth.

This year her coach Paul Fidow

believes Brett is on track to be a

serious contender.

Her five gold medals at nationals

were part of 22 golds won

by the Arawa Canoe Club. The

haul gave the club the honour

of being the best in the country.

Brett’s father Steve also got in on

the act by winning gold in the

FAMILY EFFORT: Olivia and Steve Brett show off their

medal haul from the New Zealand Canoe Sprint

Championships.

1000m race in the 55 and over

men’s masters division.

Steve Brett is a former New

Zealand volleyball rep and also

played in the National Basketball

League in the 1980s for

Palmerston North. However, he

had no background in kayaking

before joining the sport not long

after Olivia.

“I started kayaking when

I would take Olivia down to

training. I thought I can’t go

anywhere so I may as well have a

crack myself,” he said.

The family’s strong sporting

genes don’t stop there. Steve’s

son and Olivia’s half-brother

is former Crusaders and Blues

first-five Stephen Brett, who now

lives in France.

“He actually came to junior

MEDIA ​

worlds last year to watch with

his family. It was cool to see

him,” said Brett.

Olivia also isn’t limited to

being talented in just kayaking.

She started gymnastics from a

young age and represented New

Zealand in Hawaii at the age

of 11. However, her promising

career was cut short at the age of

12 with a hip injury.

“My parents said I should find

something else to stay active.

They said why don’t you give

kayaking a go. I went down to

have a go and I’ve loved it ever

since,” said Brett.

After taking up the sport she

had just four weeks of training

before attending her first

national championships where

she won three golds in the tyro

(under 13) division.

The long term goal for Brett is

to follow in the footsteps of Lisa

Carrington and compete at the

Olympics.

“I really want to go to the

Olympics. The K1 200 would be

my goal,” said Brett.

With the ability to dominate

at a national level while injured

you wouldn’t bet against her

chances.

in brief

Success for

Canterbury golfers

Canterbury players dominated

the South Island strokeplay

championships at St Clair Golf

Club over the weekend. Men’s

winner Kazuma Kobori had

a resounding seven-stroke

victory finishing 14-under par

with rounds of 68, 66, 65 and

71. The winner of the women’s

title was Hyun Jeong Lee who

also finished 14-under par with

rounds of 73, 67, 70, 72.

Heptathlon gold

for Collerton

Former St Andrew’s College

student Ben Collerton broke

both the Texas State University

and Sun Belt Conference

records when he won a gold

medal in the heptathlon

at the Sun Belt Indoor

Championships. Collerton

outpaced the competition

with a score of 5,379 overall. It

exceeding his record from the

previous year of 5,115 points.

Semi-finals for

men’s tennis

The finalists in the Canterbury

Premier Interclub men’s tennis

competition will be found this

weekend. Saturday’s semifinals

will see top qualifiers

Waimari host Te Kura Hagley

Park. Meanwhile, Cashmere –

who have won five consecutive

titles – will host Elmwood.

Local players make

Rams squad

The Canterbury Rams have

signed two local players ahead

of the NBL season in the form

of former Christchurch Boys’

High School guard Nathan

Campbell and former Burnside

High School guard/forward

Toby Gillooly. The Rams begin

their NBL season at home

against the Wellington Saints

at Horncastle Arena on April

27.

Time to rethink format for NZ Open

WILL TODAY’S young

generation of golfing fans ever

see the sport’s elite play on New

Zealand soil?

Considering it’s now been 17

years since Tiger Woods competed

in our premier event the

New Zealand Open.

Today the tournament begins

at The Hills and Millbrook

where for the past six years the

main selling point of the event

has been an opportunity to

watch people who specialise in

a sport outside of golf – usually

former cricketers – pick up the

clubs.

You could say the NZ Open

has become a hybrid of a top

flight tournament and a sport

team’s end-of-season booze trip

to Queenstown.

Maybe it’s a sign of the times,

attendance numbers and ticket

prices at Hagley Oval this summer

would suggest we’re also

now more interested in watching

rugby players play cricket than

international cricketers.

If that’s the case why not scrap

the professional element at the

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

NZ Open all together and turn

the event into our own take on

The Match which was played

between Woods and Phil Mickelson

in Las Vegas in November.

We could have a series of highly

anticipated transtasman match

play line ups . . . Ricky Ponting v

Stephen Fleming; Shane Warne

v Brendon McCullum; John Key

v one of Australia’s 10 former

prime ministers from the past 12

months and Scott Kuggeleijn v

an NRL team.

It’s sad to say but something

along those lines is probably

becoming more likely than a

move being made to attract the

likes of a Woods, Jordan Speith,

Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson

or Mickelson.

An important thing to

remember here is that while

Woods was a one-off, a number

of golfers inside the world’s top-

50 competing in our national

tournament was regular in years

gone past – yes, we do have to go

back a while.

It’s worth noting that other

media I’ve seen this week promoting

the event are using the

appearance of former US Open

champion Geoff Ogilvy as the

drawcard for the event. Yes he’s

won a major and was a regular in

the world’s top-10. However, they

failed to mention he’s currently

ranked 983 in the world and

hasn’t spent a week in the top-

100 since 2015.

Unfortunately, as a fan of golf

in this country I’ve had little

interest in watching our premier

event for at least a decade now.

Never fear though with relatively

cheap flight to the United

States these days I’d rather

head stateside to yell something

From understudy

to teacher for Leo’o

• By Gordon Findlater

FORMER openside flanker

Johnny Leo’o spent five

years at the Crusaders as

an understudy to arguably

our greatest All Black.

Now he’s passing on

knowledge from his

playing days to the next

generation.

Leo’o, 40, is a health

and fitness teacher and

director of rugby at St

Thomas of Canterbury

College. In April 2002, he

made his Crusaders debut

before going on to make

48 appearances. He also

scored six tries for the side

between then and the end

of the 2007 season.

While at the Crusaders,

Leo’o won Super Rugby

titles in 2002, 2005 and

2006. But he was perhaps

unlucky to be an openside

in the same team as Richie

McCaw.

The timing probably

wasn’t the best,” said Leo’o.

“When I was playing

it was probably a negative,

but at the same time

having someone like that

to measure yourself up

against gave me a lot of

motivation to get fitter because

he’s a machine. I’ve

got a lot of respect for him

because he’s a great man

and I learnt a lot off him as

well.”

Leo’o grew up in Invercargill

where he didn’t start

playing rugby until age 12.

“I was quite a skinny

kid – mum was too scared

I was going to get hurt and

thrown around. The old

man was always bringing

home registration forms

but she would always put

the brakes on that very

quickly,” said Leo’o.

He moved to

Christchurch with his

family as a teenager and

attended Aranui and

Hillmorton high schools

before playing first XV

rugby at St Bede’s College.

At the end of 2001, Leo’o

found out he was going

to become a professional

player with the Crusaders.

Until that point, he had

held down part-time

jobs while playing in the

NPC for Canterbury,

which included social

work, lifeguard patrol,

groundsman work and

picking onions.

“Anyone that’s picked

onions before will know

it’s hard work . . . all the

boys would be going to do

weights at the gym and

I’d just go onion picking. I

probably got stronger than

they were,” said Leo’o.

Over the Super Rugby season, The Star

will look back each week at some of the

identities who graced the Crusaders jersey

in the past and discover where they are now

One of Leo’s fondest

memories during his time

at the franchise was when

he was named to start in

his first match.

“I got told and thought

the coaches were making

a joke, because Richie had

been starting the whole

year,” said Leo’o.

“I even went and hit

Richie up and he didn’t

know what was going on.”

While he did start on

several occasions, Leo’o is

best remembered by fans

as for bringing a spark off

the bench.

“I loved the razzle-dazzle

style of throwing the

ball around. As a loose

forward, I loved playing

in the centres and getting

my hands on the ball and

looking for off-loads. We

had guys like Marshy

[Justin Marshall] and

Razor [Scott Robertson]

who loved to play like that

as well.”

Part of that playing style

is likely to be why he also

spent two years on the

international sevens circuit

with New Zealand between

2000 and 2001.

Off the field, Leo’o says

there was no shortage of

laughs and pranks being

played within the Crusaders

squad.

There was a stage when

a lot of socks were getting

cut. You’d go to put your

socks on after a match and

your foot would go right

through the sock,” said

Leo’o.

There was also times

when someone’s shirt

would have the selves cut

off or dyed pink. No matter

how hot you got at the

after match it meant you

couldn’t take your blazer

off.

“Marshy was always

involved with that. Ben

Hurst, Caleb Ralph and the

Mauger boys played some

good ones as well . . . it was

always in the spirit of having

fun and we did have a

lot of fun.”

Following his stint with

the Crusaders, Leo’o spent

seven years in France playing

for Racing 92. He then

returned to Christchurch

and spent two years working

at the New Zealand

Institute of Sport before

taking up his current role

at St Thomas.

“I always wanted to get

involved in youth and

sports, even cultural stuff.

I’m also heavily involved

in my Samoan church,” he

said.

Now the head coach of

St Thomas’ first XV, Leo’o

got his first taste of coaching

with the Canterbury

under-19 team, where he

worked under Mark Brown

and Nathan Mauger.

“Being involved with

the group is the best thing

I could have done for my

coaching career,” said

Leo’o.

As the UC

Championship and junior

rugby season approaches,

the hours spent on the

paddock mentoring future

Crusaders will be on the

rise for this former red and

Losing Jamieson to injury a

‘huge blow’ for Canterbury

PACEMAN: Kyle Jamieson

will miss the remainder of

Canterbury’s domestic season

after sustaining a side strain

injury. ​

• By Gordon Findlater

CANTERBURY WILL be

without Kyle Jamieson for the

remainder of the domestic

cricket season after the

paceman suffered a side strain

in their win over Central

Districts.

The two-wicket

victory made

Canterbury the first

team to defeat the

Stags since October

2016.

However, with

another paceman,

Matt Henry, and

Canterbury’s new

all-time leading first

class wicket-taker

Todd Astle both back

on national duties, Jamieson’s

absence will be felt.

“That’s a huge blow for us,”

said Canterbury coach Brendon

Donkers.

“It is a real shame because

he’s worked incredibly hard

throughout the season and has

been injury free for the last

year.”

The 2.03m, right-arm bowler

had been a shining light in an

Brendon

Donkers

otherwise unforgettable short

format season which saw him

finish as the T20 Super Smash’s

top wicket-taker with 22.

But Donkers will have plenty

of stock who didn’t play against

the Stags to call on in the form

of Fraser Sheat, Will Williams,

as well as Ed Nuttall who

played for a New Zealand

XI against Bangladesh at

the weekend.

After finishing dead

last in both the T20 Super

Smash and one-day Ford

Trophy competitions,

Canterbury’s win over

the Stags has now put

them in a position to

finish the season on a

high. The win moves

them to third in the

Plunket Shield, just 15 points

behind new competition leaders

Auckland.

Canterbury will host

Wellington at Hagley Oval

from tomorrow before taking

on Auckland at Mainpower

Oval on March 9.

The final round of the

competition will see

Canterbury play Wellington at

the Basin Reserve on March 17.

Dragons may unleash

former first XV star

• By Gordon Findlater

THE ST George Illawarra

Dragons look set to become the

latest club to unleash a former

Christchurch first XV rugby

star onto the NRL.

At the weekend, Mikaele

Ravalawa scored two tries in

the Dragons 18-10 win over the

Newcastle Knights in a preseason

trial match.

In 2016, the Fijian

winger finished as the UC

Championship’s top try scorer

after crossing the line 14 times

for Burnside High School.

He was then picked up by the

Canberra Raiders and went on

to be named the club’s under-20

player of the year before being

picked up by the Dragons this

year.

For one of his tries at the

winger

weekend, Ravalawa brushed

past five defenders to score

from a desperate play that

looked to be leading to nothing.

Australian media have now

started drawing comparisons

between the 21-year-old

and Fijian NRL legend Noa

Nadruku.

Last year former Shirley

Boys’ High School and St

Bede’s College first XV product,

Jamayne Isaako, was named

NRL rookie of the year and also

finished as the competition’s

top points scorer.

make his NRL debut after being

named in the Cronulla Sharks

squad.

Mid-size SUV

launched by Lexus

A NEW sport utility vehicle

has been launched by Lexus

New Zealand.

Simply badged UX, the

newcomer is available in

seven different variants, five

of them featuring new selfcharging

hybrid electric

powertrains, while two

come with conventional

petrol engines.

There are Limited, F

Sport and standard grades

with a choice of frontwheel-drive,

or all-wheeldrive

in the standard and

Limited grade hybrids.

The UX 250h self-charging

hybrid electric variants

are expected to make up 65

per cent of UX sales.

With a 2-litre petrol

engine, the self-charging

hybrid electric model is

rated at 135kW with combined

fuel consumption of

4.5l/100km.

When fitted with the E

four electric all-wheel drive

system, the combined fuel

consumption is 4.7l/100km.

For the UX200, silky

smooth performance is

available through a highly

tractable and efficient

2-litre, petrol engine which

produces 126kW and

A SPORTY GT

performance hatchback

adds more than a touch of

sparkle to the all-new 2019

Kia Cerato range that has

just gone on sale in New

Zealand.

Featuring a lively 1.6-litre

turbocharged engine and

dual-clutch seven-speed

self-shifting transmission,

the new top-of-the-range

Cerato GT injects a dash of

verve and also practicality

into the line-up.

That’s because the Cerato

GT comes as a user-friendly

five-door hatchback with

lots of features to enhance

the driver and ownership

experience.

The new Cerato GT is

a very exciting car for us,”

says general manager Kia

Motors New Zealand Todd

McDonald.

The combination of

superb styling and exceptional

interior space in

this new generation model

blends nicely with the

added performance of the

turbocharged engine make

it a very appealing package.”

headlines, it’s the new GT

The combined fuel consumption

is 5.8l/100km.

The UX is the first Lexus

to use the global architecture

C platform with its low

centre of gravity, to provide

a hatchback-like driving

experience with easy

manoeuvrability in the city

with nimble handling on

the highway.

A comprehensive safety

package, the second

generation of the Lexus

Safety System + is fitted as

standard across the range

and includes night-time

pedestrian detection and

daytime cyclist detection

as an addition to the precollision

system, as well

to win more favour with

buyers, Mr McDonald

said. The GT Line replaces

the Limited in the new

Cerato line-up and while

it doesn’t feature the GT’s

turbo engine and spirited

performance, it does have

similar sporty styling and

equipment.

Available as a five-door

hatchback and a four-door

sedan, new Cerato is larger

than the outgoing car, which

translates into more passenger

and luggage space.

On the road, the GT’s

1.6-litre four-cylinder

engine provides thrilling

performance with 150kW

at 6000rpm and 265Nm

of torque from 1500-

4500rpm, making it model

as land tracing assist and

the sights on a multiinformation

display and

“It’s the turn of the UX to

create amazing experiences

and welcome a new kind

of customer to the Lexus

brand,’’ said senior general

manager of Lexus New

Zealand Paul Carroll.

“It’s a car that really connects

with people’s emotions,

from its striking

looks to its intelligent

orchestration of all the interior’s

parts and the Japanese

Takumi craftsmanship.’’

Prices for the UX range

start at $59,900 and end at

The Best Kept Secrets

to Selling Your Home

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the

only impression

No matter how good the interior of your home looks,

buyers have already judged your home before they walk

through the door. You never have a second chance to

make a first impression. It’s important to make people

feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the

house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive

shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry ways are also

important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and

keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by

putting in a small bench or a vase of fresh-cut flowers.

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show

Your house needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you

never know when your buyer is going to walk through

the door. You have to be available whenever they want

to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape.

Don’t leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher

cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure

there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little

inconvenient, but it will get your house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first

You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling

your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of

remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part

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

It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops

where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking

price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most

inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new

cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can

present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start

envisioning their own style. If you have a little money

to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why

one? Because when people see one high-end appliance

they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates

the kitchen.

Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house

One of the most important things to do when selling

your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal

stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can

imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your

stuff – put it in storage. This includes family photos,

whose commission is half most firms.

makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your

money back if you do a huge improvement project before

you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates

that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh

coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy

some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles,

cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track,

fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters

You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts

of potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody

is a dog- or cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your

home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty

litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes.

It will give buyers the impression that your house is not

clean. If you’re planning an open home don’t leave your

pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field

A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong real estate agent.

Make sure you have an agent who is totally informed.

They must constantly monitor the multiple listing

service (MLS), know what properties are going on the

market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find

an agent who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one

has many tools to get your house sold.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up

Maximize the light in your home. After location, good

light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they

want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the

windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage

of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let

in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house

bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable.

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets

Storage is something every buyer is looking for and

can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of

your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there.

Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and

cabinets clean and tidy.

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act
