Flooding

still

concerns

residents

• By Louis Day

MONCKS BAY residents don’t

think the city council is doing

enough to prevent major flooding

happening again.

Last year in February during

the king tides, Cliff St was flooded

with seawater which gushed

through the drainage outlet at the

end of the street.

This resulted in trees, plants and

hedges dying.

City council land drainage

manager Keith Davison said there

was no guarantee seawater would

not flood the street again in

a similar event to last year’s.

However, he said it

was unlikely that a similar event

would happen again.

“At the time it [February 2018

king tides] was thought to not

be greater than a one in 10,000

year event and therefore not one

that we routinely aim to protect

against,” Mr Davison said.

He said the city council would

not be changing its approach

and would continue to check

the outlet four times a year as

it has done for the last 21 years.

The drain is not checked before

predicted storm events.

get in touch

from the editor’s desk

THE REMARKABLE Jake Bailey is

about to embark on another challenge –

competing as an individual in the Coast to

Coast (see page 3).

Bailey of course is the well-publicised

former Christchurch Boys’ High School

head boy who fought off Burkitt’s non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma,

only to struggle to walk unassisted after the chemotherapy damaged

the nerves in his legs.

But just three years after the diagnosis, Bailey was part of

a team which competed in this year’s event. That in itself was

amazing.

Now the 21-year-old will compete in the time-honoured event

as an individual – which means running, kayaking and cycling

the 243km course in the two-day individual event.

Inspiring stuff. We could all learn a lot from Bailey.

Another challenge for former head boy

JAKE BAILEY has been bitten

by the Kathmandu Coast to

Coast bug and will line up in the

race for a second time next year.

He will compete as an

individual in 2020 after being

part of a three-person relay this

year.

It’s a remarkable turnaround

for the former Christchurch

Boys’ High School head boy,

who fought off Burkitt’s non-

Hodgkin’s lymphoma, only to

struggle to walk unassisted after

chemotherapy damaged the

nerves in his legs.

But true to form, and his

incredible resilience, in February

– three years after his initial

diagnosis – the 21-year-old took

on the three-part 140km bike

ride to cross the finish line in

New Brighton alongside two

of his ex-school mates, James

Dunbar and Dalton Ewing.

“The feeling of

accomplishment was incredible.

I was so humbled to have been

able to be a part of an event with

so much history and meaning

to the Canterbury community

– and also fairly grateful that I

made it,” Bailey said.

Almost as quickly as he

crossed the finish line, like many

who start their Coast to Coast

journey as part of a team, Bailey

has already set his sights on the

RESILIENT: Former CBHS head boy Jake Bailey, who fought

off cancer only to find the nerves in his legs were damaged by

the chemotherapy, will take on the Kathmandu Coast to Coast

again next year.

challenge of completing the

243km course in the two-day

individual event.

“Even the day before at the

registration you start to feel

how special the event is and

how much it will mean to you to

achieve the Kathmandu Coast

to Coast, and then when you do

cross that finish line, you just

want to do it again,” he said.

“It’s a tough race, there’s no

doubt about it, but having grown

up in Christchurch and seen

family members and friends do

it for years, I just want to be able

to say I did that too, the whole

thing on my own. I went from

one side of the South Island to

the other and it was all me.”

Having recently completed the

Tour de Cure, a 1400km bike

race in Australia, Bailey says

he is comfortable with the bike

and run legs of the event, but

mastering the kayak, including

earning his grade two certificate,

will be a challenge.

“It’s probably my biggest

challenge to learn the kayak,

but I’ve got more than 200 days

to get myself sorted, so I’m

confident I’ve got enough time

to get myself organised. And

there are some fantastic people

around that I’m sure will help

me out along the way.”

Now in remission for the

third year, Bailey is also looking

forward to continuing to

demonstrate there is life after an

illness like cancer.

“I’d like to show survivors that

they can go on to better things.

That cancer doesn’t define them.

I often meet parents whose

kids are going through cancer

and they’re incredibly worried

about how their kids might

come out the other side from a

physical standpoint, and I guess

I’m walking proof that life can

be good, it can be great, and it

shouldn’t hold you back.”

Writer turns mother’s war romance

Lynette Hedrick grew

up hearing stories of her

mother’s World War 2

romance. She said the

30 letters between the

doomed pair were crying

out to be written into a

novel. Julia Evans reports

MATTIE EDGAR and Charlie

Kincaid’s love story began with a

chance meeting on a tram while

World War 2 was raging in 1942.

Two years later, it ended on pen

and paper.

Christchurch writer Lynette

Hedrick grew up listening to her

mother Mattie’s stories about her

long lost fiance, Charlie.

“It’s my mother’s long-told true

story. She would tell me about

her missing fiance she met by

chance.”

Charlie was a United States

Navy diver in WW2. He was

stationed on repair ship, the

USS Rigel, while her mother was

training to be a hairdresser.

They met in May, 1942, on a

tram in Auckland. Mattie was

in her late 20s and had a day off

her study. She decided to spend it

going to the cinema.

When 23-year-old Charlie

stepped on the tram, he sat next

to her. “He politely introduced

himself and asked if he could join

her at the movies,” Hedrick said.

“She just felt so drawn to him.”

She said her mother and

Charlie spent a lot of time

together for the next six months

– they went dancing, to the

movies and spent time walking

in the park.

“What I can remember is that

she had many happy outings with

him.”

But the romance was short

lived and his ship was sent back

to the Pacific, bound for New

Caledonia, when Charlie had to

say goodbye to Mattie.

The USS Rigel was in Auckland

from May, with officers working

on Hobson Wharf until

November.

“He had his instructions and he

had to say goodbye in November

1942. Then he began writing to

her.”

After he left, for the next two

years they wrote letters back and

forth. That chance meeting and

LOVE STORY:

Lynette Hedrick

wrote a book

called The Rigel

Affair, based on

letters between

her mother and

a US Navy diver

during WW2.

the subsequent 30 letters are the

basis of Hedrick’s new novel, The

Rigel Affair.

Hedrick and her husband

Bud have researched Charlie’s

history with help from the US

Navy archives and his shipmates

Leonard Anderson and Dave

Jessup.

“Both my husband and I

contacted the navy headquarters

in Washington DC and they gave

us a lot of information about the

USS Rigel,” she said.

But Charlie’s navy days began

with a bang. His first mission

before he came to New Zealand

on the ship was particularly

notable. The USS Rigel sailed to

Honolulu, Hawaii, in July 1941.

She was still there on December

7, 1941, when the Japanese

attacked Pearl Harbor.

“It was his first encounter, they

couldn’t believe it,” Hedrick said.

“It was parked at the back

of the battleships so it wasn’t

bombed by the Japanese.”

Sustaining minor damage in

the strike – which killed more

than 2400 Americans and led

to the US formally entering the

war – the USS Rigel then sailed

around the Pacific, repairing

other battle ships.

Mr Hedrick said it was a

vital error on the part of the

Japanese.

“The Rigel was a huge ship, like

a factory and it had the highest

trained specialists and all the

critical support functions. The

fact that the Rigel came out with

minor damage was a god send for

the Americans,” he said.

After leaving Auckland and

New Caledonia, the USS Rigel

went on to take part in one of

the most savage battles of the

Pacific war – the Guadalcanal

campaign.

letters into a nostalgic book

In August 1942, the Allied

forces, largely US marines,

landed in the Solomon Islands.

The USS Rigel didn’t reach the

islands until November.

It was the first major offensive

by the Allies against the

Japanese.

The Japanese, who had

occupied those islands, were

eventually outnumbered and

overwhelmed by the Allies.

“Where the boys were in the

Guadalcanal, it was the most

horrific, nasty island,” Hedrick

said.

Mr Hedrick said Charlie would

have been “hugely” involved in

the fighting.

“These guys were trained in

explosives, they had significant

training . . . he went on one

mission where they were put

behind enemy lines to blow up a

submarine and get out.”

After Guadalcanal in 1943, the

USS Rigel travelled to Vanuatu,

Australia and New Guinea.

But while he was in the Pacific,

he kept in constant contact with

Mattie back in New Zealand.

His letters were sporadic,

commenting on what was going

on during the war, as well as

pining for Mattie.

A lot of them were censored

due to the nature of the missions.

The USS Rigel earned four

battle stars by the end of WW2.

She was decommissioned in

1946. However, Charlie left the

USS Rigel and ended up back in

Rhode Island, New York, at the

end of 1943.

“He sent her an engagement

ring and money for her to join

him,” Hedrick said.

“But there were too many

concerns about her trying to

cross the Pacific when there was

a war going on.”

She said she wrote the story

to give her mother and Charlie’s

tale an ending, which never came

for the pair. Although the book

may differ from what happened

in real life, being fiction based on

reality.

“In real life, my mother

believed he was lost at sea,” she

said. “She waited and waited, but

never heard from him.”

Mattie kept the letters in

a chocolate box, where they

remained until she was killed in

a car accident in the 1980s.

The Rigel Affair is Hedrick’s

second published work, she

is also an artist.“When I read

Charlie Kincaid’s

meeting in 1942

and led to a series

of love letters.

those 30 letters, they cried out

for somebody to do something,”

she said. “When I listened to

my mother, it all seemed so

powerful.”

Hedrick is working on a sequel

– so Charlie and Mattie’s story

isn’t quite finished.

Love letter from Charlie on

June 29, 1943

Darling,

Another letter to let you know

that I’m still alright. I’ve learned

to relax quite a bit even though

things are rather trying at

times. Falling bombs and shell fire

doesn’t bother me near as much

as it used to. I guess I’ve become

sort of used to it and now about

the only thing I worry about is

when you and I’ll be able to see

each other. Somebody sure talked

out of turn when we were down

south because the Japs know

where we are at and what we are

up to. About the only good station

we can pick up is Radio Tokyo,

and the other night Tojo made a

speech beamed at us. Here’s what

he said, “Welcome USS Rigel to

CENSORED Bay. We hope you

enjoy stay while there. Anyhow

it will be a short one for we are

coming in and taking over July

1.” Personally I’m not worrying

a hell of a lot about anything he

says, and I still think we can shoot

the pants off of the Japs anytime

they feel like mustering around.

If you can go over there go to

Brisbane and I’m sure you’ll find

everything the same as the time

before you and I said goodbye.

Love always, Kinky.

Volunteer

honoured

JAMIE BREEZE has been

volunteering his services to

Coastguard Canterbury in

Lyttelton since 2015.

Now, the Bromley resident

is one of a number of volunteers

from across Canterbury

who has received outstanding

voluntary contribution to the

community awards for their

efforts.

Since joining Coastguard

Canterbury in 2015, Bromley

resident Mr Breeze has become

a key volunteer in his unit.

In addition to his full-time

job as a digital marketing expert

for a website design agency, Mr

Breeze is a volunteer crew manager

and a duty officer in the

essential emergency service.

This was made possible after

he completed 49 theory and

practical courses, four assessments

and significant training.

“A lot of it was to do with

search and rescue, which is

quite specific to how Coastguard

operates.”

His time volunteering can

vary from eight to 40 hours a

month.

“Normally it’s quite a bit

busier in the Summer,” he said.

The awards were presented

by Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson at

the city council civic offices last

Monday.

SARAH KERR is a creative at

heart.

The 25-year-old has cerebral

palsy, which affects body

movement and co-ordination –

but her condition doesn‘t hold

her back at Handmade Studio

Charitable Trust.

Handmade Studio is a craft

co-operative shop where people

with disabilities can weave,

loom, stuff and sew to create a

variety of items – and 90 per

cent of the money from each

sale goes back to the person who

made it.

Sarah has been working at

Handmade Studio since 2015,

and says she loves it because it

doesn’t matter that she has a

disability.

“It doesn’t matter that my legs

don’t work, because it’s all hand

stuff,” she said.

“It’s varied and interesting,

and you look at something and

go: ‘Wow, I made that’.”

Sarah works four-and-a-half

days a week and spends a lot of

her time turning wool into fabric

using a loom.

“It’s mostly hand stuff,

and any leg movements are

big movements, so I can do

that. I can’t do sewing on the

machines, and if I do hand-sew

it has to be rough stuff. But I

can tack – you can be the worst

sewer in the world and still

make it work.”

And Sarah says it’s more than

just work – she met her best

friend at Handmade Studio.

Supervisor Toni Parker-

Adams said there is often up to

12 people working in the

studio each day, and the

friendships that have formed

are just as important as the

work itself.

“They feel safe here, and they

have a good group of friends.

Some of them have been coming

A THEATRICAL performance

has won a Middleton Grange

School band the Canterbury

regional Smokefreerockquest

final.

The Sneaky Caribbean Monk

Seal’s lead guitarist Jonathan

Manning was ecstatic with his

band’s win, which he attributed

to their unique stage presence

and genre fusion.

Combining blues guitar and

classic old school rock influences,

the band placed an emphasis on

creating a full on-stage experience

for the audience.

“We love very theatrical

performances and it’s natural

for all of our personalities to be

more eccentric on stage,” said

Jonathan.

“You can go up there and

play music and stand still, but

we want to be more than that.

It’s about being in the moment,

revival, energy, and loving rock

’n’ roll,” he said.

The other members of The

Sneaky Caribbean Monk Seals

are Yannik Turner (vocals),

David Archer (bass) and Abel

Carson (drums).

Second place in the band

category went to Indigo State

from Burnside High School and

Hagley Community College,

with members Keira Jonkers

(vocals) Israel Soper (bass) Kayne

Child (lead guitar) and Lucas

Royds (drums).

They join Canterbury solo-duo

from St Margaret’s College

and Christchurch Girls’ High

School (first place) and Amber

Williams from Cashmere High

School (second place).

The Canterbury winners now

Matariki Hunga Nui

A trio of artists come together to visually explore Matariki.

Robin Slow and Brian Flintoff have artistically collaborated

for many years. Joining them for the first time is Amber

Smith whose artwork has been displayed for some time

at Little River Gallery but never before in exhibition there.

Amber’s medium is both ceramic and printmaking, Robin

works in acrylic on canvas and Brian carves whalebone

and native timbers. All three artists live and work in the

Tasman and Nelson area.

Matariki of many people.

Matariki was always a time to remember those who have

become whetu (stars), to make connections between the

rangi (sky) and the whenua (land), to celebrate and rejoice.

There are numerous stories of ‘Matariki’ giving

perspectives and conveying differing versions that are

part of a narrative about a group of stars seen above the

horizon. The narratives located in these works relate to the

land and sky, above and below us, on to the place we are

located. We can stop and look upward and see the stories

in action, moving from one group of whetu to another each

bearing its own relationship to the whole cosmology.

Karina Milnes,

Natalie King,

Brian Salisbury

and Deb

Bamber were

part of the

team who

helped make

the move

from plastic to

biodegradable

medicine

pottles.

CDHB picks up Hoon Hay

nurse’s paper pottle idea

HOON HAY nurse Brian

Salisbury’s idea to move from

plastic to paper medication

pottles could see nearly 1.2

million plastic pottles saved from

landfill every year.

Mr Salisbury took the idea to

the Canterbury District Health

Board’s professional studies

course, Collabor8, where he

undertook a project called

Reducing Waste at Te Whare

Manaaki.

“I feel great that what I thought

was a little project has turned

out to be reducing the CDHB’s

carbon footprint, with the added

bonus of saving money,” he said.

Biodegradable paper

medication pottles are now

replacing plastic ones at all

CDHB hospitals.

The move will not only reduce

its carbon footprint, but they also

cost 33 per cent less – a bonus

saving of about $10,000.

Trusts help lifeboat institute get $35k in new equipment

RESCUE: Operational crew member Bjorn Stankowitz tests out

the new jet ski.

The 30ml pottles are suitable

for liquid or dry medicines,

which are administered to

patients. Prior to the paper pottle

being introduced, there were

three different types of plastic

pottles being ordered.

Said supplies clinical product

co-ordinator Deb Bamber:

“Reducing to just one item will

lessen our carbon footprint, with

fewer deliveries, packaging, and

storage.”

THE SUMNER Lifeboat

Institution has $35,000 in

new equipment thanks to the

generosity of two

long-standing benefactors.

The JI Urquhart Trust granted

$20,000 for a jet ski and trailer

and The Southern Trust has

funded a $15,000 Kubota tractor.

To pay homage to the JI

Urquhart Trust, which has

helped keep the institution afloat

for eight years, it has called the jet

ski Urquhart Trust

Rescue.

Said coxswain Blair Quane:

“This year, when they heard we

were looking for funding for a jet

ski, they gave us extra to cover

this purchase.”

“We are very, very grateful to

these trusts. Both have helped

Cliff St resident of 20

“There is nothing

circumstances align again,”

he said.

Sumner Lifeboat to save lives over

the years and their help with this

project will make a difference for

several years to come,” Mr Quane

said.

“Our old jet ski named

Southern Trust Rescue was

funded by The Southern

Trust 12 years ago.

It has served us well,

but reached its limits.

Our first priority was

to replace the old

motorbike for towing

the jet ski with a small

but strong, more stable

tractor that would

enhance safety even with the old

jet ski.”

Operational crew member

Bjorn Stankowitz has been

“Marriner St outlets are

now to be checked prior

to storm events and Cliff

the same level of service

Ian Wyllie given their experience of

seawater flooding via the

drainage system,” he said.

CONCERNING: Seawater bursting through the drainage

outlet at the end of Cliff St.

and helping train other crew

members.

“The jet ski a little beauty,” he

said.

“The Kubota has more power

and the driver has better control.

It is easier to turn so it is easier to

get it out of the garage and

that means we can get the

jet ski onto the water more

quickly.”

The new jet ski is

longer and stronger

than the previous machine

and Mr Stankowitz said it is

more responsive and is also

more stable in the water.

“It’s also easier for the

ST BEDES

Boarding

at St Bedes College

St Bede’s is a Catholic College for boys

founded by the Society of Mary in 1911 and

it is also the only Catholic boarding school

for boys in the South Island.

Catholic, Marist and Bedean principles

and values form the basis of a holistic

education at the College. We aim not to

make the College great but to ensure every

boy has the opportunity to be great, and

we endeavour to develop young men of

Catholic hearts and minds through the

experiences the boys have in their time here

at the College.

St Bede’s is a College for all…a place where

gospel values are practised to help form

principled men; a learning environment

where everyone achieves; a place that

teachers want to come to because of the

strength of the community; a place also,

where boys can embrace spiritual, sporting,

cultural and community activities, which all

combined shape boys into men. That’s the

priority and that is in our DNA.

Boarding at St Bede’s College is a tradition

that goes back to the 1920s. Our rich

history and tradition provides an excellent

foundation to embrace the challenges of

the modern era and prepare our boys to be

Catholic leaders wherever life takes them.

Today’s boarders enjoy life away from

home at the only single-sex Catholic

boarding school in the South Island.

Like many other organisations in

Christchurch, our campus has been broken

and tested. The demolition of the Chapel

seriously challenged us. It was the single

most important building at St Bede’s

College, and had symbolised the heart and

soul of the College ever since the third

Rector, Father Gilbert, converted it from the

gymnasium in 1929.

Makeshift holy places in the last eight

years, including the present facility, are a

poor imitation and far from ideal. But we

knew it was important to have this sacred

space – a place where we gather in good

times and in bad.

The time has now come to build a new

Chapel, which will be opened in September

this year.

After the hard years, there is real excitement

and anticipation about the prospect of the

rebuild which will significantly transform

the campus. As well as the Chapel, we

recently opened a new Food Technology

and Visual Art block and have extended the

Gymnasium. The Performing Arts Centre

will also be opened later this year.

Mt Pleasant’s Cheryl Melrose thanks some good Samaritans who

came to her aid on St Andrews Hill Rd

I am humbled and

grateful to the wonderful

people who came to my aid

after a bike accident on St

Andrews Hill Rd on the

morning of June 4.

Special mention to the

young mother with a baby,

the gentlemen redirecting

traffic, those active in

keeping me warm and

safe while waiting for the

ambulance.

I am fortunate that

although I have no

memory of the incident,

medically I escaped

serious injury. There

was nothing random

about your willing acts of

kindness.

And as I have no means

of contacting you directly,

I hope to reach you all

through this form of

media.

Once again my heartfelt

thanks and appreciation.

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

EDITOR

Gaynor stanley

There are few thing sadder than drab white walls, I reckon, and

yet New Zealanders have long surrounded ourselves with them. So

when a painter started splashing some plucky pigment around Star

Media’s open plan office, I paid close attention to reactions. As a

cosy mustard yellow spread over the entire far wall, the brightening

of mood was palpable. People commented on how happy the colour

made them feel, how much warmer the atmosphere was, how the

sunny tone somehow lightened the load of constant deadlines.

It was grea to see more confidence using colour, pattern and

texture in the newly completed private homes we feature in this

magazine too. Where not so long ago we might have felt neutral

shades of brown or grey were somewhat audacious, today’s newly

built homes pop with vibrant blues ( Jay and Rebekah’s place, page

6) and copper hues (Ryan and Jen’s, page 30). Matt and Celia (page

18) champion a monochromati colour scheme inside and out,

while Sridhar and Susanna (page 63) chose dramatic black iron

contrasting with smooth golden cedar to colour their new world.

It was also eviden that more homeowners and building industry

professionals are getting behind the movement to build better

homes for the Christchurch climate. Warmer, healthier and cheaper

to run is the brie from owner seeking builders with the know-how

to construct their home from smarter building materials and designs
