FORGET DONALD and Daffy –

the St Martins Duck is making a

name for itself as a local celebrity.

A Facebook page called ‘St

Martins Duck’ has been created

to share photos, sightings and updates

of the paradise duck, which

is known to

have a temper.

The sassy

duck has a tendency

to go

quackers over

brightly coloured

clothing

and shoes, bites

people’s ankles,

plays ‘chicken’ with buses and

sits in the middle of the road not

moving or budging.

Residents have also reported

on Facebook that she fights with

other ducks, causes a racket crying

and wailing and frequents

the St Martins New World car

park, chasing and attacking some

customers.

“She wouldn’t get off my

husband’s car at St Martins New

World, he tried everything . . . in

the end he started to drive away

(slowly) and she flew away,” said

one poster.’’

“That little lady kept us up all

night with her quacking and

honking,” said another.

Centaurus Rd resident Ange

Yates said the duck has been

“causing chaos” in her neighbourhood

and seems “really,

really distressed”

Mr Costigan, 71, affectionately

He was a racehorse owner,

Animal and Bird Hospital vet

meaning it was fed and

fully grown.

“More than likely it would have

After losing hat Jim scores rugby shirt

• By Louis Day

SUPPORT FOR 89-year-old

Scotsman Jim McLachlan

has been flooding in after his

precious tartan hat was stolen.

Mr McLachlan was on his way

home from the pub on his mobility

scooter when a cyclist swiped

the hat from his head.

The tartan hat was sent to him

from Scotland by his mother 50

years ago.

Since The Star reported on the

incident last week, people across

the country have offered their

support to the Glaswegian.

The Highlanders have sent

Mr McLachlan, who has been a

supporter since their inception in

1996, a game-worn jersey.

“We felt for Jim after hearing

his story and thought it would be

nice to reward him for his continued

and proud support of the

Highlanders, even while living

in Christchurch,” said marketing

manager Amanda Gould.

“We sent him a game-worn

number 16 home jersey, usually

first off the bench to back up the

team when they start to tire as

he’s the kind of man we’d like

to be able to call on – a staunch

southern man.”

Mr McLachlan proudly flies a

Highlanders flag on his mobility

scooter and suspected his affiliation

with them had something to

do with the theft.

“It might have been one of

those Crusaders supporters, they

are pretty one-eyed. I have been

dealing with this kind of thing

since the Super 12 started,” he

said.

He thought the new jersey was

a “beauty.”

He was also a big fan of his new

herringbone cheese cutter sent

from Auckland hat manufacturer

Hatworx.

Christchurch’s Devon Marriot

said he is organising a mini-concert

for Mr McLachlan where he

will be treated to a performance

from Scottish band, Saltire.

“I was heartbroken for him. I’m

a Highlanders supporter myself

and one day I will be in a mobility

scooter and I just thought he

needed something to cheer him

up,” he said.

Owner of the Scottish Shop in

Dunedin Erin Hogan has also

sent Mr McLachlan a brand new

tartan hat.

“I just took it straight off the shelf

after I read the article,” she said.

Nikora Martin’s fall from grace

A MAN who was once hailed

a hero for his role in helping to

fight the Port Hills fires has been

jailed for 12 years for child sex

offending.

In May, Nikora Martin, 37,

was found guilty of nine sex

charges, involving two victims,

following an eight-day jury trial

in the district court.

Martin made headlines in

March 2017 when he shared

videos via Snapchat of him

creating fire breaks in a

bulldozer close to the wildfires

– which burnt for 66 days – to

stop the fire from spreading and

destroying homes.

He got so close to the fires,

helicopters with monsoon

buckets had to dump water on

him so he could keep working.

At the time of the events, Senior

Constable Rod Fraser called

Martin “a hero.”

During his sentencing by

Judge Paul Kellar yesterday,

Martin continued to deny the

offending.

Judge Kellar jailed Martin

for 12 years and said the

offending was “about as serious

as it gets.”

Judge Kellar reduced the

sentence for Martin’s good

character. He said the credit

for his otherwise clean record

was reduced by the long period

over which his sex offending

JAILED: Nikora Martin was sentenced to 12 years in

prison yesterday after being found guilty of child sex

offending.

occurred.

Defence counsel Simon

Shamy said Martin deserved

some credit for his community

spirit in putting his own safety

at risk to help stop a disaster.

The charges involved

offending on various dates

between 2010 and 2016.

Martin was found guilty

of indecency for kissing and

touching one girl from the age

of 11 and raping her.

He was also found guilty

of indecency for touching

another woman. He denied

all the offending against one

victim, and said the touching

of the other victim happened

accidentally when he mistook

her for his wife in bed in the

dark.

Judge Kellar decided against

imposing the non-parole term

that the Crown had asked for.

Martin will become eligible

to be considered for release after

four years, but his actual release

will be decided by the Parole

Board.

In April 2017, Martin attended

a League 4 Life fundraiser

luncheon with two other people

heavily involved in the fires.

They met with Vodafone

Warriors ambassador Sir

Peter Leitch, then-managing

director Jim Doyle and former

player Jerome Ropati. They

were presented with travel

packages comprising of Air New

Zealand tickets to Auckland,

accommodation at Skycity

Hotel and passes as Sir Peter’s

guests in the Stacey Jones

Lounge to watch the Warriors v

Parramatta Eels NRL game later

that week. The gift was part of

the Vodafone Warriors bid to

“salute everyday heroes” on the

day of the game.

blood spinning

• By Sophie Cornish

HARNESS RACING New Zealand

officials are re-looking at the

practice of blood spinning in horses.

It comes after animal welfare

groups claimed the procedure

causes stress and suffering.

A recommendation as part of

Racing Minister Winston Peters’

Messara Report called for a ‘special

review of racing integrity bodies.’

It is currently under way and inviting

submissions from the public.

Harness Racing New Zealand

obtains advice from veterinary

experts when setting its rules and

regulations. They include strict

rules around blood spinning practices,

also known as IRAP, ACS

and PRP. However now following

questions from The Star, HRNZ is

seeking more advice.

Said general manager operations

Liz Bishop: “HRNZ is obtaining

further independent advice on the

process of blood conditioning and

will consider the impact, if any, of

this advice, on our rules.”

In a submission on the special

review by industry veteran, David

Phillips, he slams the process calling

it cruel and unnecessary.

He called on Mr Peters, HRNZ,

the New Zealand Racing Board

and the Racing Integrity Unit to

look into the process.

“It’s been very busy . . . it’s

“Compared to last year where

there didn’t really even appear

The practice is encouraging

people who suspect they might

Delay for chlorine-free water

DELAYS TO the city council’s

well head upgrade programme

means parts of the city will still

receive chlorine-treated drinking

water beyond this month.

The city council had previously

expected to end chlorine

treatment by the end of July,

except at times of high demand,

with it entirely gone from the

water supply by the end of

September.

Temporary chlorine treatment

will continue

to affect some

parts of the city

at various times

until the end

of September,

including

households

in Sydenham,

Beckenham,

Opawa, St Martins, Spreydon,

Hoon Hay, Cashmere,

Bowenvale, Huntsbury,

Sockburn, Hornby and Wigram.

It is not the first time the water

upgrades have run over schedule

– in January, the city council said

it expected the water to be largely

chlorine-free in May.

Spreydon Ward city councillor

Phil Clearwater understood that

some areas were harder to resolve

than others.

“I think a large amount of

progress has been made but like a

lot of earthquake recovery issues

this is, unfortunately, taking

longer than I as a city councillor

would like,” he said.

Greater Hornby Residents

Association member Mark Peters

hoped the September deadline

would be met.

“It’s disappointing for sure, but

understandable, it is a shame that

they had to do this in the first

place,” he said.

Beaumont said in spite of the

delays the city council was

still on track to have chlorine

completely removed by the end of

September.

“A number of unexpected

delays in the work programme –

including remedying issues with

land contamination and stability

around some well heads – have

slowed us down a bit, but we’re

leaving no stone unturned in our

efforts to speed things up again,”

she said.

at the city’s largest pump station,

Main Pumps, was scheduled for

completion this month but had

been pushed back to August due

to the discovery of asbestos. Main

Pumps supplies five per cent of

the district’s drinking water.

“We know getting back

to permanent, chlorine-free

for residents, so we’re working as

hard and as fast as we can to get

the remaining upgrades done in

Resident

threatened

with gun in

Parklands

• By Sophie Cornish

A PARKLANDS resident had

a gun pointed at him after

refusing to hand over a cigarette.

The incident adds to a spate of

crimes in the suburb recently.

Police were called to Broadhaven

Ave on July 2 at 5.10pm after the

man was threatened with what

appeared to be a firearm.

A police spokesman said the

area was searched but they could

not locate any suspects.

On Friday, a bus driver was

robbed of her cashbox near the

intersection of Queenspark

Drive and Chadbury St.

A man with a hoodie covering

his face grabbed the cashbox off

the driver and ran away.

It comes after a number of

burglaries in and near the

suburb last month.

Burglaries were reported

at the Waimairi Beach Golf

Club, the Pukeko Centre

on Chadbury St – which is

shared by the Parklands Rugby

Football Club and Parklands

Bowling Club – the Parklands

Christchurch United Softball

Club, and Waitikiri Golf Club.

Driving, eating, recycling – time

In May the city council

declared a climate

emergency and Mayor

Lianne Dalziel said it

was vital everyone did

their part to reduce

carbon emissions. Louis

Day asks the mayor and

city councillors what

they are doing to reduce

their carbon footprint

BETWEEN 2016 and 2017,

Christchurch emitted an

estimated 2,485,355 gross tonnes

of carbon dioxide. That equates

to 6.6 tonnes of carbon dioxide

emissions per person.

Transport represented 53 per

cent of these emissions followed

by stationery energy at 22 per

cent, agriculture at 10.5 per

cent, waste at nine per cent and

industrial processes were at 4.7

per cent.

Christchurch’s total was lower

than Auckland’s (7.9 tonnes) and

Dunedin’s (11 tonnes) but more

than Wellington (5.7 tonnes).

The majority of city councillors

have been taking active steps to

reduce their emissions, by either

using electric vehicles, bikes or

public transport to get to and

from work, religiously recycling

and limiting their meat intake.

However, Fendalton Ward

city councillor and possible

mayoral candidate

James

Gough, who

voted against

the declaration

of a climate

emergency, admitted

he was

doing “not a

lot” to reduce

James Gough his carbon

footprint.

“To put it this way, I don’t plan

on buying a whole lot of roman

and living in a tree so I’m

just living my life as normal,” he

said.

consider purchasing an electric

vehicle.

However, he does Lime, recycle

and try to purchase environmentally

“I don’t go to the limits that are

over and above most responsible

people, I’m conscientious of that.

I think most New Zealanders

such as myself and my household

only need an excuse to make an

environmentally-friendly decision

and most people want to be

issue.”

Seven charged

following

violent assault

on inmate

• By Sophie Cornish

A VIOLENT prison yard attack

against an inmate has resulted

in seven prisoners being

charged with assault.

All seven of the Christchuch

Men’s Prison inmates have been

charged with wounding with

intent to cause grievous bodily

harm following the attack in the

prison’s yard on June 20.

The victim was taken to

Christchurch Hospital in

moderate condition with facial

injuries, bruising and suspected

concussion, St John spokesman

Gerard Campbell said.

The men, aged 39, 23, 23, 35,

25, 28 and 31 will all appear in

the district court on various

dates next week.

Prison director Jo Harrex said

all seven prisoners were placed

on directed segregation, where

they were ‘denied association’

with other prisoners.

No weapons were used in the

attack.

“Assaults are unacceptable

and any prisoner found guilty

of an assault will be held to account,”

said Ms Harrex.

Staff used pepper spray to

control the offenders.

It is the second assault to

happen at the prison this

year.

On May 17, a prisoner used

a sharpened piece of plastic to

assault a prison guard.

Does your name register an alert under

• By Sophie Cornish

IF YOU live in Canterbury,

chances are you may be one of

the more than 150,000 people

who have an active alert against

their name under a police

intelligence system.

Through the National Intelligence

Application, police can

apply 126 different ‘alerts’ under

four categories, people, location,

organisation and vehicle. These

alerts could be manually entered

or automatically-generated.

By mid-June, 2, 027,114 people

nationwide, about 50 per cent of

the entire population, appear in

the system with a current alert

against their name.

In April, this figure sat at

1,988,963, just more than 40 per

cent of the population.

Of those people who have at

least one alert, the average number

of alerts per person is 1.73

alerts.

Canterbury sits just above the

national average with 1.84 alerts

per person (who have an alert).

The number of people with at

least one active alert in the Canterbury

Metro Area is 118,840.

For the Canterbury Rural Area,

there is 37,774.

For the curious, you can apply

to find out what your alert could

be, if you have one, under the

privacy act.

Generally, people are not

notified when an alert is placed

against their name.

The system, which has been

operational since 2001, plays an

important role in the duties of

front-line police.

When deployed to an unfolding

incident, a call will come over

the radio to advise officers of the

flags of the person or location

involved so they can respond accordingly.

For example, if a person has

flags for assaulting police, they

may call for back-up on a routine

traffic stop.

Police officers can access the

system from their mobile phones.

The intelligence application,

which replaced NZ Police’s

Wanganui Computer, is far more

than just a database of flags and

includes information on criminal

histories, offences, incidents and

case management files.

While an alert may have previously

been against a name, some

can expire quickly, such as a

missing person alert, which expires

when the person was found.

However, others can linger for

life and are only ever removed

if there was an error. Ones that

are indefinite include ‘suicidal

tendency’ and ‘using/carrying

firearms.’

Alerts for ‘family violence involvement’

are common. People

are automatically flagged when

linked to a family harm incident,

whether a suspected offender,

victim or a witness.

Flags for family violence involvement

expire two years after

police attend the incident.

At-risk family violence victims

may be informed if an alert is

placed on them, their home, vehicle

and phone number to advise

staff of the risk and assist police

response.

WHAT’S YOUR ALERT?

Anyone can ask police

to supply the alerts

against their name

as per Principle Six of

the Privacy Act. You

will require two forms

of ID and can make

the request online or

in person at a police

station. https://www.

police.govt.nz/about-us/

request-information/

request-informationabout-yourself-privacyact?nondesktop

Another common alert is ‘vetting

monitor’ which is placed on

people to indicate they had been

checked out by the police vetting

service.

Locations, vehicles and organisations

can also be flagged.

Vehicle alerts could range from

‘vehicle written off – insurance

company’ to ‘vehicle known to be

driven by a child abuser.’

Organisation alerts include

‘members violent’ or ‘fines warrant’

and location alerts could

be ‘gang address’, ‘Housing NZ

property’ or a more interesting

one ‘booby traps.’

People alerts range

dramatically. Some are ‘suicidal

tendency’ ‘pornographer’ and

‘dementia/Alzheimer’s disease.’

Police said the “HIV (AIDS)

that is available to them

The development of technology

has allowed the information to be

available in a single space, almost

instantaneously. Previously, there

were various databases, card

indexes and information spread

across several channels.

“I don’t see this as a situation of

their business in the safest way

possible, so that they are aware

of something that might present

self to them when they approach

someone,” he said.

Dr Ball doesn’t believe the alert

system could be a disadvantage to

someone, causing police to treat

them or a situation differently.

“If police go beyond their

mandate then an individual has

the police complaints authority,”

he said.

Dr Ball also said while there

have been previous instances

of police misusing the system,

statistics would suggest there is

a low chance someone would

access your information without

lawful authority.

New Zealand Herald reported

that between August 2007 and

August 2009, figures showed 33

staff had been making unauthorised

checks of the NIA.

“When you divide that by the

number flags, there’s about a one

in 60,000 chance of somebody

accessing that information without

the lawful authority.”

“So again the statistics

don’t necessarily support any

suggestion of across the board of

exploitation and unauthorised

use or access to that sort of

information . . . . I see it as a

valuable tool and nothing more,”

said Dr Ball.

TEENAGER MADDIE Collins

is desperately fighting to save

her new kidney after it began to

show signs of failing.

Maddie’s mother Sarah

Manson-Collins said she’s currently

struggling with declining

kidney function and high blood

pressure.

These are complications from

a failing kidney and right now

we are just trying to maximise

her best chances to save it,” said

Mrs Manson-Collins.

The pair are currently staying

at Ronald McDonald House

Grafton Mews in Auckland

while Maddie is treated in Starship

Hospital.

“It’s been really hard, Although

Maddie’s quite frustrated

about being back in hospital she

is handling things well. We’ve

accepted that this is just where

we are at the moment,” Mrs

Manson-Collins said.

“She’s been sick for 10 years

and it’s exhausting. I really feel

for Maddie a lot.”

The West Melton 15-year-old

suffers from kidney disease,

nephrotic syndrome.

Maddie received a ‘miracle’

second kidney transplant in

January last year after being told

there was only a two per cent

chance of finding a match in

New Zealand.

The first was donated six years

ago by her father Adam but her

body rejected it.

The family didn’t expect to

be able to find a second kidney

match in New Zealand.

They were planning a trip to

The John Hopkins Hospital in

Baltimore, United States, to find

one when they were notified an

organ had been found.

Mrs Manson-Collins said in

spite of the current prognosis

not looking good, they weren’t

reconsidering the trip.

“At the moment, no. We are

focused on stabilising this kidney

and right now we don’t want

to think too far forward.”

In spite of her illness, Maddie

is a passionate equestrian and

competed at the Cover Queen

Winter Series at McLeans Island

on Sunday.

“Even though her kidney is

failing she went out there and

gave it her all and did really

well,” Mrs Manson-Collins said.

A SEAL rarely seen in New

Zealand popped in for a rest at

Birdlings Flat over the weekend.

Crabeater seals are usually

found on pack ice around the

Antarctic and seldom make the

trip to New Zealand shores, with

only eight sightings documented

across the country between 1885

and 2015.

But a lone traveller has been

spotted snoozing at Birdlings

Flat less than a week after

another sighting on a beach near

Dunedin on July 2.

There have been three

sightings this year, including the

recent one in Dunedin, which

may be the same seal who rested

all weekend at Birdlings Flat

before heading back out to sea.

One was found dead inland

from Lake Ellesmere in May this

year.

However, it had some scars on

puncture wounds, which could

be signs of a recent encounter

with a leopard seal at sea.

Crabeaters form an important

part of the diet of leopard seals

and the pups are frequently

eaten.

Ms Forbes said its name was a

misnomer and the seals do not

eat crabs.

‘’They’re called crabeater

It is critical people do not

Blood spinning in harness racing:

• By Sophie Cornish

THE PRACTICE of blood

spinning has become an integral

part of the harness racing

industry – but not everyone is

happy about it.

Industry veteran David

Phillips has slammed the

process, saying it is cruel and

should be banned.

He has made an 18,000 word

submission on Racing Minister

Winston Peters’ special review

of racing integrity bodies,

which was recommended by the

Messara Report.

He called for Mr Peters,

Harness Racing New Zealand,

the New Zealand Racing Board

and the Racing Integrity Unit to

look into the process.

Animal welfare groups,

including PETA, SPCA and

SAFE, have also raised concerns

about the process and its impact

on animal welfare.

Blood spinning refers to a

process in which blood is drawn,

processed and then re-injected

back into the same horse (in this

instance).

Veterinarians have been using

the process for more than 20

years to treat injuries.

In the submission, Mr Phillips

raises the use of blood spinning

by one of New Zealand’s most

successful ever stables, Rollestonbased

All Stars Stable.

ALL STARS: Natalie Rasmussen and Mark Purdon own All

Stars Stable and use blood spinning to treat their horses

All Stars Stable owners Mark

Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen

say they use blood spinning

to treat their horses following

advice from vets.

The pair own Equine Blood

So what is blood spinning?

The procedure uses the

compounds from the

serum or plasma fluid

content of the blood to

speed up healing.

The process is known

under a variety names,

including autologus

conditioned serum and

platelet rich plasma.

•Blood is collected from

the horse and incubated

at a normal body

temperature for 12-24

hours.

•It is then exposed to a

large surface area stratum

Solutions NZ Ltd, which offers

the treatment to customers.

Its website says: “ACS

technology (a type of blood

spinning) was formulated by

Equine Blood Solutions Pty Ltd

to develop the most advanced

regenerative and cell therapy

processes, providing the latest

advancements in the equine

industry.”

Purdon and Rasmussen refute

any suggestion blood spinning

enhances a horse’s performance.

They say Mr Phillips’ submission

is “just an opinion” filled with

“speculation.”

“We haven’t really had a good

read of it, it doesn’t interest us.

and/or UV light, which

encourages the continued

production of naturally

occurring substances

from cells present in the

blood. The blood is then

injected back into the

same horse.

•Another method

is known as IRAP –

Interleukin 1 receptor

antagonist proction. This

is designed to stimulate a

horse’s own white blood

cells to produce antiinflammatory

mediators

and enzymes.

It’s not accurate and relevant,”

said Rasmussen.

They received approval from

HRNZ and the RIU, which

implement HRNZ’s rules and

regulations, to offer the legal

process.

“It is under the rules as an

approved process, which can be

used as long as it is prescribed

from a vet and it can’t be done

within one clear day of racing.

Outside of that it can be used,”

said RIU general manager Mike

Godber.

HRNZ chief executive

Peter Jensen also dismissed

Mr Phillips’ submission as

inaccurate and misleading.

Cruelty or useful healing tool?

There are a number of

inaccuracies and supposition in

Mr Phillips’ submission, which

consequently gives a misleading

view regarding the use of blood

spinning within the harness

racing industry,” said Mr Jensen.

“HRNZ obtains expert

veterinary advice as necessary

when setting the rules and

regulations of harness racing.

Veterinary advice was obtained

on the permitted use of blood

spinning as a therapeutic

treatment to aid the healing of a

horse.

“HRNZ continually monitors

its rules and regulations in light

of what is happening globally,

with other racing jurisdictions

and regarding advances in

veterinary medicine,” he said.

But HRNZ is obtaining

further independent advice on

the process of blood spinning

and will consider the impact, if

any, of this advice on its rules,

general manager operations Liz

Bishop told The Star.

But Ms Bishop did not respond

to questions from The Star about

when the decision to obtain

further advice was made.

In his submission, Mr Phillips

says blood spinning is the same

as blood doping. However, both

HRNZ and the RIU have said

this is incorrect and the two

processes are very different.

“Blood doping is completely

different and banned,” said Mr

Jensen.

SPCA scientific officer Alison

Vaughan said there are a small

number of studies which appear

to support the benefits of blood

spinning for healing injuries.

“However, further study

(and evidence) is required to

determine the efficacy and short

and long-term safety.”

Dr Vaughan said the

SPCA supports the use of

blood spinning when used

under veterinary advice

and supervision as part of a

treatment plan to aid the healing

of injuries.

However, she said the SPCA

opposes the use of blood

spinning when it is intended

to enhance an already healthy

animal’s athletic performance.

PROCEDURE:

There are

various opinions

on the process

of blood

spinning in

harness racing.

Dr Vaughan said similar to

humans, some horses are more

tolerant of blood being taken

than others but the process could

be stressful for the individual.

A PETA spokeswoman said

blood spinning is a procedure

used to force horses to recover

from an injury more quickly.

“Many horses are made to start

racing before they are skeletally

mature and may be given a

concoction of drugs to help

mask injuries and keep them

profitable . . . horses should not

be manipulated or subjected to

such procedures, particularly as

the goal is often to get the horse

back on the track faster. Horses

should be allowed sufficient time

to recover naturally and fully,”

she said.

“With horses, there is also the

concern that illegal substances

could be introduced in the

procedure.”

PETA wants to see the racing

industry focus more on reducing

injuries, rather than use blood

spinning.

The real question should

not be about the ethics of blood

spinning but about what we are

forcing these horses to endure

that they might require such a

procedure.”

SAFE head of campaigns

Marianne Macdonald said

the organisation opposes

the use of animals for

entertainment, which includes

horse racing.

“Blood spinning is a very

small aspect of the suffering

that a race horse will endure

during their life . . . we support

an investigation into the welfare

of animals used by the racing

industry and any steps to

improve their lives,” said Ms

Macdonald.

From the classroom to the runway

• By Devon Bolger

SPECIAL NEEDS teacher

Elizabeth Mundt is about to

swap the classroom for the

runway at the Mrs Universe New

Zealand competition.

The mother of three lives on

a small lifestyle block south of

Christchurch. But she’s about

to put away her gumboots and

slip into a pair of heels for the

beauty pageant in Auckland in

September.

It will be her first time

competing at a pageant after

passing up the opportunity years

ago.

“I got asked to do one when I

was 20 but I didn’t have enough

confidence in myself. I thought

they were only looking for super

models,” she said.

Mrs Mundt made the decision

to compete at the pageant

a few weeks ago after she

recommended a friend enter.

“When I started to see what

they were looking for, it felt

much more me. It’s very familyfocused

and charity-driven,” she

said.

It aims to unite women and

work to prevent domestic

violence, as well as change

society’s perceptions of beauty.

It also opens pageantry up to

married women, who are unable

to compete for a ‘miss’ title.

Mrs Mundt said she has

enjoyed the experience so far and

is very excited.

“It’s very empowering to do

something outside of yourself

and to help break out of your

comfort zone.”

the support of her whole family.

She said her husband Neil and

their three children Elijah, 14,

Luke, 12, and Ebony, 9, have

been encouraging her to give it

a shot.

“My kids are overwhelmingly

excited for me to compete, they

all encouraged me from the

beginning.”

One of her passions is

nurturing young people – she

has fostered nine children over

the years and works at Rolleston

Christian School.

“It was an opportunity to

invest in them and bring change

into their lives. I tried to give

them a new focus and new

paths.”

The cost of travelling and

competing is high and she has

had to find ways to fundraise for

the trip.

Overwhelming kindness after brutal attack

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

NICHOLA Crawford cannot

fathom the kindness that has

been shown to her following

the brutal attack of her german

shepherd Jerry.

She was walking her son’s

dog along Wharenui Rd, Upper

Riccarton, recently when three

unrestrained dogs appeared

from an unfenced property and

attacked him.

“I was a mess, I don’t

remember most of it . . . I was

trying to hold Jerry but he

was on his choker chain, so

I was trying to sort of swing

him around but it was all just

so quick . . . he was bleeding

everywhere,” Ms Crawford said.

The owner of the three dogs,

along with members of the

public, helped throughout the

attack, but Ms Crawford has not

heard from the owner since.

The attack left Jerry with

puncture wounds along his

abdomen, numerous bites and a

wound on his neck.

He was taken to the vet and

sedated so his wounds could be

drained, cleaned and stitched

up – he was also prescribed

antibiotics and painkillers.

Ms Crawford said she doesn’t

blame the dogs or their owner,

but she would like a fence

installed on the property and

has asked the city council’s dog

control team to follow up.

“I said to dog control, I don’t

want to take money off them

because it wouldn’t be right.

I have already got the money

raised,” she said.

Within four days of setting up

a Givealittle page to raise money

to cover Jerry’s vet bill, $1027

was donated by 61 people.

Ms Crawford said most of

the money came on the day

she set up the page and she was

overwhelmed by the support.

The vet bill was $950, but Ms

Crawford also had additional

costs to cover such as having

RECOVERY: Nichola Crawford has been

overwhelmed by the support she has received after

on Wharenui Rd. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

Jerry’s stitches cleaned.

Axel Jones, who made a

donation, said he didn’t know

Ms Crawford but it was such an

unfortunate story.

“As a dog owner, you feel that’s

like a friend being attacked and

no doubt a very scary experience

with a big bill to go with it.”

Since the attack, Ms Crawford,

– who already has anxiety –

said she has been having panic

attacks. “That was my worst

thought ever happening and

now it has happened,” she said.

Ms Crawford said she is now

too afraid to take Jerry out, but

is hoping to make “baby steps”

to be able to take him walking

regularly again soon.

ANOTHER five peacocks have

been shot as a neighbourly

dispute continues to escalate.

In February, Brenchley Farm

owner Sue Stubenvoll sent a

legal letter to her Lyttelton

neighbour Janelle Wills, who

feeds the wild peacocks.

It said she had the right

to shoot the birds under the

Impounding Act. She gave Miss

Wills four weeks notice of what

would happen if they came onto

her property.

In May, Ms Stubenvoll

arranged for someone to shoot

five of the peacocks.

Last week, she had someone

shoot another five.

She said it is possible more

may be killed.

Ms Stubenvoll said she had

eaten some of the peacocks.

They are pretty tough so

sometimes I give bits to the

dog,” she said.

The cull comes right in the

middle of a relocation effort to

move the peacocks out of harm’s

way.

There are now only four

peacocks left. Seventeen have

been relocated.

There were originally more

than 30 peacocks in the area.

Miss Wills said the peacocks

news online at www.star.kiwi

COOKED: A

further five

peacocks have

been shot before

they could be

moved off a

property in

Lyttelton.

Five more wild peacocks

shot – and some eaten

that were shot all had new

homes and were about to be

moved.

“I don’t get it when they have

all got homes they are set to

move in to. Why kill them when

you can save them?” she said.

She wants more time to

relocate the remaining peacocks.

Ms Stubenvoll said she killed

the peacocks in a bid to protect

the rare geckos and skinks that

live on her farm.

However, Miss Wills does not

believe her.

The reason she has done this

is because she wanted to eat

them, it has nothing to do with

geckos.”

Akaroa now under fire on

notorious Facebook page

• By Jess Gibson

A WEEK after Lyttelton was

targeted by the notorious

Facebook page Sh** Towns of

New Zealand, Akaroa has come

under fire.

A satirical review of Akaroa

posted to the page last week

attracted more than 200 comments

and 50 shares.

Sh** Towns of

New Zealand, which

jokingly writes about

“all the best places not

to go on a holiday,”

has 125,000 Facebook

followers.

The Banks Peninsula

outpost of Akaroa

had the misfortune of

being settled by the

French and has been

filled with pretentious,

foul-smelling weirdos ever

since,” the post read.

Akaroa resident and Frenchman

Steve Le Lievre does not

have Facebook but has read the

post. He said it was “way the hell

off from the truth.’’ The 71-yearold

well-known Akaroa identity

is the town crier and has lived

there his entire life.

The page took several jabs at

the town’s French history, which

dates back to 1840 when the first

group of settlers landed.

Mr Le Lievre is a direct

Steve Le Lievre

The Star Thursday July 11 2019

descendant of one of those

settlers, Francois Le Lievre.

One post read: “French

origins are still evident in the

inhabitants’ laziness, aversion

to personal hygiene, unnatural

lust for baguettes and eagerness

to surrender at the first possible

opportunity.”

Said Mr Le Lievre: “Oh god,

it’s rather strange to

me. It has no bearing

on the history of

Akaroa. It’s bloody

crazy, I know the history

because I’m part

of it.”

The post also gave

the town’s attractive

views a back-handed

compliment:

“Akaroa’s main

claim to fame is its

supposed ‘picturesque

charm’, which is pimped out

twice daily when hordes of

norovirus-afflicted cruise ship

passengers descend on the

hamlet to buy dodgy croissants

and take a picture next to an old

lighthouse.”

Mr Le Lievre said he loves

“everything” about Akaroa,

including its tourism scene.

PAPANUI HIGH School students

Year 11 students Day Park,

based on brain studies.

Anish plans to head back to

Otago University after he completes

high school as he wants to

study to become a neurosurgeon.

Twelve teams of year 11 students

from throughout the South Island

competed in activities like shortanswer

tests and an interactive

neuroscience laboratory.

school’s choir students.

They have worked very hard

to be able to sing together at

their current standard. Con

Brio is a choir consisting of 53

girls from year 10 to 13. It is

the less experienced students

grow throughout the year, and

to watch the more experienced

students help to lead the

Dangerous intersection upgrade plan

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A PLAN to turn the city’s fourth

most dangerous junction into a

T-intersection to reduce crashes

has received mixed feedback.

The city council has received

137 submissions on its proposal

for a $1 million safety upgrade

at the Middleton, Ilam and Riccarton

Rd intersection.

A seminar on the intersection

was

held between

city council

staff and the

Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton

Community

Board

last week.

Helen

Broughton

Board

deputy chairwoman

Helen

Broughton said she couldn’t

comment on the meeting due to

it being publicly excluded.

She said there had been mixed

feedback on banning right turns

from Ilam Rd onto Riccarton

Rd, but did not appear to be

“overwhelming opposition” to

the plan.

The plan would involve

restricting Riccarton Rd from

Middleton Rd to left turns in and

out only, as well as narrowing

the road to allow more footpath

space for pedestrians.

ACTION: Safety improvements are planned for the intersection of Ilam, Middleton and

Riccarton Rds.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

The left turn slip lanes from

Ilam Rd into Riccarton Rd

would also be removed.

Mrs Broughton said she would

prefer to have the intersection

realigned so that Ilam Rd connected

through to Middleton Rd.

The intersection is ranked the

city’s fourth most dangerous

with 40 crashes with varying

degree of injury since 2011.

news online at www.star.kiwi

“It is a very dangerous intersection.

We have always wanted it

done but we have never been able

to get it done, the reason now

is it is part of the cycleway programme,”

Mrs Broughton said.

The intersection will be upgraded

as part of the Nor’West

Arc Major Cycle Route, which

was approved in March last year.

A report will be presented

to the board on July 23 with

submissions on the proposal to

be made public at the same time.

ACCOMMODATION providers

including Airbnb operators could

be made to register with the city

council.

This comes after Local Government

New Zealand agreed to support

the city council’s request to require

all short-term accommodation providers,

including Airbnb operators,

to register with their local council.

It has also given the green light to

a second city council remit seeking

Government funding for additional

research into the effects on people’s

health of nitrates in drinking water.

Both remits were passed with at

least 70 per cent support from the

sector.

Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner said

it was pleasing to see the remits becoming

official policy to be actioned

by LGNZ.

“I was pleased to see both of our remits

strongly supported by the Local

Government sector at the meeting,

indicating the significance of these

issues for other councils nationwide,”

he said.

“Now that the remits are official

policy to be actioned by LGNZ, they

will be campaigning at a central

government level, including engaging

with the respective ministers.

It is great to have this support from

LGNZ to further raise the profile of

these important matters.”

No walk in the park

VITTORIA

& Matt

EXERCISE: Vittoria enjoying

a forest ramble, moments

before giving up and asking

for a ride.

AFTER A long week of caring

for a gastro-afflicted toddler

(yeah, it didn’t get much better

after last time), we bring you

something completely different.

A guide to one of Canterbury’s

classic walks – up the

street from my Mum’s place to

the beach in Waikuku.

To begin this stunning tour

of a typical coastal village street

and forest (with a toddler) one

needs a healthy dose of confidence

that trying something

new could never go wrong.

Pram? No no, leave that

behind and instead rely on a

one-and-half-year-old to hold

both dogs while you carry the

bag. She insists.

Don’t worry, they’re small

dogs.

Stepping out onto the street,

the warm sun will fill you with

joy and remind you that you

forgot to bring a sunhat.

Bask in the brilliant rays

before immediately halting

the walking party to put more

clothes on the toddler when the

clouds roll in.

Keep up a brisk toddler pace

for the 6000 years it will take to

get 100m up the street.

Unfortunately, it’s likely all

four members of your group

will be going at different speeds

and two of them are attached to

the slowest one.

Solution? Wait until the slowest

one (clearly the toddler)

gives up and hands over one of

the dog leads.

Plunge head long into the still

frosty forest and allow yourself

time to think things are going

pretty well.

Don’t take the easy path, that’s

for people who didn’t grow up

in the village and you definitely

did. So just head off on a rough

cut path through a thick grove

of pines.

Some of your group (again,

clearly the toddler) will trip on

the loose pine needles and sand.

This may (will) lead them to

hand over the second dog.

While carrying the bag and

holding both dogs, enjoy the

short walk until the last thing

you aren’t holding gives up completely

and cries to be picked up.

Now, holding everything and

everyone, slog your way up the

sand dunes to reach the beach.

Savoir the irony that the moment

you picked to enjoy one of

this region’s great walks coincides

with a high tide so full that

there’s not actually any beach to

walk on anyway.

Finally, with a last look at a

wonderful view, turn around

and carry everyone back.

Sounds and sights of Samoa on stage

In every sense, music

master Mark Vanilau

is bringing the Samoa

of his childhood to his

hometown. So what

can we expect from

his latest offering at

the Christchurch Arts

Festival?

MARK VANILAU is somewhat

of a music legend – although he

will try to tell you otherwise.

Having worked with the likes

of Fly My Pretties, Trinity Roots,

Hollie Smith, Eru Dangerspiel,

Ladi 6 and Scribe, and with

about 14 years spent working

with Dave Dobbyn, Vanilau

certainly hasn’t forgotten his

roots.

After a year-long break,

Vanilau is now back and

bringing his Giant of the Sea

show to the Christchurch Arts

Festival.

“This new show is part of the

new direction I want to head in

. . . it’s the type of show that is

about the storytelling,” he said.

Vanilau says the performance,

named on the back of his lead

single, which took out best song

at the Pacific Music Awards,

is an ode to his childhood and

early musical days.

He uses soundscapes, visual

HERITAGE: Mark Vanilau will bring the Samoa of his

childhood to his hometown in his show Giant of the Sea at

the Christchurch Arts Festival. ​

aids and even bacon-frying

on stage to create a sense of

nostalgia.

“What I want to try and do is

create a space that looks just like

my lounge.”

Vanilau hopes to transport

viewers to this intimate space

– drying laundry and all – and

offer them a glimpse of his

past, as well as his future. The

performance will also feature

his two young children and five

nieces and nephews, who form

the vocal section.

“You’ve got to give these young

ones opportunities to be in a

show and experience performing

in front of 300 people,” said

Vanilau.

Frying up bacon on a hot

plate on stage is part of their

role, as is dropping the record

player needle, while koko samoa

permeates throughout the space.

Vanilau has an incredible

story to share – having travelled

to every continent, including

East Germany during the fall

of the Berlin Wall – and is now

in a phase of his life where

he is wanting to share his

experiences and knowledge with

the young generation and wider

community.

From a renovated shop in

Hillmorton’s Rowley Ave,

Vanilau and community

development adviser, Solomon

Smith, run The Orchard – a

newly-established creative space

for anyone in the community.

There is a whole bunch of kids

and amazing creatives in this

community and many of them

have not had an opportunity to

pursue their passions.”

Vanilau hopes it encourages

and motivates people in his

community to rediscover their

creative talents and passions.

“I want to get people that

have nowhere to go – or the

solo parents who sit at home

watching the TV from 9 to 3pm

until the kids come home.”

“It is a space where everyone

can drop in, talk and connect

or meet others and enjoy some

koko samoa every day.”

Following the Christchurch

Arts Festival, Vanilau aims to

take his music on a community

tour.

“I want to rock up to some

little dingy hall and have a cup of

tea with the people that may or

may not show up,” said Vanilau.

Festival runs from July

26 to August 3. The full

programme and tickets

BOOKS 27

High-flying life recalled in memoir

Tales of high-flying

aerobatics, near misses,

and exciting landings

at some of the world’s

busiest airports, are

revealed in a new

memoir by Kiwi aviator

Tom Enright. He talks

to Brenda Harwood

NOW LIVING in retirement

after 45 years of flying, Enright’s

memoir Many A Close Run Thing

was released last month.

Growing up in Ranfurly in

the 1940s, where passing planes

were cause for great excitement,

Enright developed a fascination

with the skies that led him to a

20-year air force career, followed

by 25 years as an airline pilot.

Enright joined the RNZAF as

an engineer in 1951, and travelled

to England as a 16-year-old

to attend the Royal Air Force

college in Cranwell.

“It was there that I qualified as

a pilot, and had marvellous experiences

flying piston prop planes

and Vampire jets,’’ he said.

“Every flight was a thrill in

itself.’’

After a happy, adventure-filled

time at Cranwell, Enright was

delighted that his passing-out

parade was reviewed by then Admiral

of the Fleet, Lord Mountbatten

and Lady Mountbatten.

Returning home to New Zealand,

Enright joined the Vampire

fighter squadron at Ohakea, and

became a member of the RNZAF

aerobatic team.

Acrobatic flying, both solo and

in squads, led to some extraordinary

experiences, including one

very “close run thing’’ – an engine

failure resulting in a crashlanding

in rural fields, taking out

several fences along the way.

“I was thankful to have

walked away from that lot,’’ he

said.

Another strong memory from

Enright’s aerobatics career was

the chaotic Wellington airport

opening in 1959.

A large contingent of aircraft

from around the world, including

a massive Vulcan bomber,

battled high winds, low cloud

and poor visibility to create

HARWOOD

displays that were at the edge of

disaster.

Finding themselves far too low,

the aerobatics team, including

Enright, pulled high Gs to avoid

crashing into the ground, ending

the display “badly shaken’’.

After all this excitement,

becoming a flying commander at

Wigram air base, before captaining

a Sunderland flying boat

to isolated communities in the

South Pacific, was an interesting

change.

Leaving his illustrious 20-year

military career, Enright became a

pilot with Air New Zealand, flying

Electra, Douglas DC8, DC10,

and finally Boeing 747 passenger

aircraft.

“Flying the DC10 was a great

experience – they were beautifully

well-balanced planes to fly.

“After that, the 747 was like

flying a giant truck.’’

At the age of 55, Enright left

Air New Zealand and went to

Singapore Airlines, continuing to

fly all over the world.

“Flying big planes into places

like the old Hong Kong airport,

where you were flying through

great skyscrapers, was amazing.

“I was pleased to be able to

meet such a huge variety of

people and to fly to so many

incredible places.’’

Along with his many adventures,

Enright has also lived a full

life as a husband to the late June,

father to five sons, and grandfather

of nine.

“Being away so much as a

pilot, it was good to have properties

at home in Auckland to care

for, and the family to enjoy.

“June had a lot to take care of

with five boys to deal with – she

was a very good manager.’’

WINE

Embracing the blend – it’s a matter of balance

• By Mark Henderson

THIS ASSORTMENT of wine

eschews the concept of single

variety wines in favour of

embracing the blend.

It is all a matter of balance

and synergy, where two, three

or more ingredients can create

a complete whole, while the

freedom of the blend allows

wine-makers to experiment and

‘’have a little fun’’.

Pegasus Bay’s Sauvignon

Semillon and Millton’s Les Trois

Enfants are old hands at this

game, while the new Vergence

typifies the test-bed approach,

with the Untitled range marrying

a diverse, multi-vintage, region

and variety approach).

2016 Pegasus Bay

Sauvignon Semillon

Price: $32

Rating: Excellent

Matchstick and a little wild

yeast funk soon blow off leaving

ripe pear, pea and grassy hints.

Powerful fruit offers breadth on

the palate, pear, pea pod, citrus,

sweetly fruited yet dry, a little

chalky grip a counterpoint to

the fruit. A zesty tangy element

runs like a laser beam through

the wine, to the delightfully long

finish that hangs in the

mouth.

A lovely food choice.

2017 Millton Les Trois

Enfants Co-fermentation

Price: $21

Rating: Very good to

excellent

Surprisingly evolved colour

yet a fragrant and complex nose

of honey, citrus, roses and hints

of Turkish delight. The nose

suggests sweetness but this is

dry; the silky and supple palate

offering dry honey and musk,

orange zest, grilled grapefruit

and a bittersweet almond note

on the fresh, lifted finish.

Beguiling, intriguing and

rather fascinating.

2016 Vergence White by

Pegasus Bay

Price: $27

Rating: Very good to excellent

Somewhat subtle nose, struck

match, smoke and bramble, a

little wildness too. A game of

two halves perhaps, as the palate

is bold with intense grapefruit,

orange, mandarin, dried herbs

and nuts.

There’s complexity on this

finely balanced, silky palate; a

zesty rush of acidity on the close

keeps this clean as a whistle,

while time sees an attractive

chewiness evolve.

NV Untitled Pink Blend

Price: $20

Rating: Excellent

Multi region and variety blend.

Youthful, fresh and complex

nose of strawberry, apple skin,

citrus peel, peach and wine gum.

Creamy and attractive palate of

mixed berries apple and musk

moving into some savoury notes.

Delightfully, bright and zesty, dry

finish that hangs in your mouth.

NV Untitled White Blend

Price: $25

Rating: Very good

Multi vintage, variety and

region blend. Fragrant nose

that evokes tropical fruit salad.

Creamy entry, a crisp, fresh

palate with notes of cooked

apple, pip fruits, toffee and

a refreshing, ripe grapefruit

character that gives zestiness.

Fresh and appealing drinking

with a little wisp of salinity on

the finish that gets the salivary

glands going.

NV Untitled Red Blend

Price: $30

Rating: Excellent

Intriguing multi vintage, multi

region and multi variety wine

with a nose of red fruits, malt

biscuits, wild herbs and a tangy,

resiny note. This nods its hat to

Europe, its tanginess and juicy,

crunchiness suggesting a Kiwi

Beaujolais.

Fresh, bright, vibrant, nicely

balanced with an appealing

bittersweet element before

flowing to a cool, dry finish.

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question came

from Dawn Griffiths.

Congratulations!

I recently bought three citrus

Q trees; Orange Harwood Dwarf

(grows approx. 1.5m high), Lime

Bearss Dwarf (grows approx.

1.5m high) and Tangelo Seminole (grows

approx. 2.5m high). I’d like to have them

in pots which can be moved in the cold

winter months, instead of covering and

uncovering each day. How big a pot

should I be looking at and what

compost/ pot mix would be best to use?

A

WIN a Daltons Fruit Tree and Planting Pack!

Growing citrus trees in containers is possible,

especially in colder parts of New Zealand.

As all citrus have a substantial root system,

you must select containers that are large

and feasible to move, such as half wine

barrels. Very simply, the bigger the container, the more

successful you will be.

Young plants should be planted into Garden Time

Daltons Container Mix. It is free draining and has

sufficient nutrients for the first 3-6 months after planting.

Side dressings of slow-release citrus fertiliser (try

Daltons Garden Time Fruit & Citrus Fertiliser)

should also be applied over the warmer months.

Ensure the containers have adequate drainage holes and

are raised above the deck or patio they are resting on.

The ‘winter home’ for your citrus should have good light

and adequate ventilation.

Read our How to Grow Citrus guide for more advice:

www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides

For growing advice and information on

products visit www.daltons.co.nz

Planting during early winter ensures your fruit trees have enough time to establish good root

systems before hot summer months. Select varieties that will grow and fruit the best in your

climate. Plant in a warm, sheltered, sunny spot in the garden with well-drained soil. If space

is an issue, dwarf varieties are compact and still produce full-sized fruit.

Valued at $80, each pack includes 2 x Garden Time Compost, Daltons Premium

Planter Tabs, Garden Time Fruit Tree & Citrus Fertiliser and Daltons Organic

Bio-fungicide Granules, plus a pair of comfortable Red Back gardening gloves from

Control pests through winter spraying

THE BEST antidote to a pest

and disease-ridden spring

garden is thorough winter

spraying.

Nothing toxic is required —

simply give plants a good dowsing

of copper spray, followed a week

later by an application of spraying

oil. Both of these are regarded as

organic.

Repeat three times over the

winter months to kill both

overwintering insect eggs and

disease spores.

It’s especially important to spray

fruit trees (including citrus), roses

and other deciduous plants, as

well as any plants badly infested

with insect pests or disease last

summer.

In fact, you should spray the

entire garden, but wait for any

winter-flowering plants to finish

blooming before you begin.

Garden pests lurk in the most

unexpected places.

Check the undersides of leaves

for scale insects, and leaf sheaths

and stems for mealybug and

scale.

Look for silvering of leaves

on evergreen shrubs and trees

including rhododendrons,

camellias and pieris.

This silvering indicates the

presence of thrips. Spray oil to

clean these up and reduce their

numbers for spring. Collect

diseased fallen leaves and place in

the rubbish bin (not the organics

bin).

Spray the ground around

infected plants with copper spray

to help kill disease spores.

Winter-hardy weeds can

overrun the garden, making

control in spring a nightmare.

Spray with fast-acting glyphosate

or dig out hard-to-kill weeds such

as dock.

Once weeding is done, fork

compost through soil and mulch

with a 10cm layer of fine bark or

pea straw.

Shirley look forward to first

metro rugby semi in 24 years

• By Gordon Findlater

SHIRLEY HAVE overcome

more than two decades of

missing the premier metro rugby

playoffs by booking their first

semi-final appearance since

1995.

The last time the club made

a semi-final appearance, they

featured Canterbury stalwarts

Matt Sexton and Chris England.

But with one round remaining

in the competition, Shirley are

assured of a semi-final berth

and can book in a home ground

advantage with a win over

defending champions Lincoln

University on Saturday.

Coach Deane Lutton was part

of the Shirley team which last

made the playoffs in 1995.

He also coached the team to

their last top six finish in 2005

before a 10-year coaching stint in

Japan.

He returned to the fold this

year and believes one of the keys

to Shirley’s rise has been the

culture change introduced by a

number of Shirley centenarians

who are part of the coaching and

management team this year.

The likes of Hamish

Binnie, Chris McGrath, Matt

McLachlan, Hayden Mitchell

and John Robins – who was part

of the last Shirley side to win the

club title outright in 1986 – have

all joined Lutton at the club they

formerly played for.

Shirley have won 10 games

this season and lost five. Perhaps

the most impressive part of

their record is that they have

missed out on a bonus point in

their losses only once this year –

meaning they have lost by more

than seven points only once.

“I think the boys just believed

in the game plan, believed in

what they were doing and just

thought bugger it we’re just as

good these guys, let’s have a

crack. Each game they’ve kept

on improving and knocked over

some good teams,” said Lutton.

The make-up of this year’s

team looks much the same as

previous Shirley sides in recent

years. However, they have made

a number of acquisitions in key

positions, including first-five

Cullen Moody, who has came

straight from first XV rugby at

Christchurch Boys’ High School

last year.

“He’s handled it really well . . .

if they want to play Canterbury

under-19 against bigger teams

from the North Island, in my

opinion, they’ve got to play

senior rugby, because they won’t

get that physicality playing

senior colts,” said Lutton.

“He’s a real nice level-headed

boy and his father [Graham

Moody] coaches the backs, so if

he steps out of line, he’ll get into

him,” said Lutton.

They also added English

18-year-old lock Harry

Wilkinson and former

force in premier club

rugby this year, scoring

eight tries, the fourth

most in the competition.

Campbell Reid, who can play

lock and flanker.

Also pivotal to Shirley’s success

has been a strong scrum, which

features hooker Suia Maile and

prop Richie Asiata who are

both part of Canterbury’s wider

training squad in preparation

for the upcoming Mitre 10 Cup

campaign.

The metro competition this

season has been one of the most

open in recent years.

All teams in the top six have a

chance to make the semi-finals

coming into the weekend. But

with their spot already secure,

Shirley assistant coach Hayden

Mitchell admits they have

somewhat exceeded expectations

for the year, but will still have to

raise the stakes.

“Yes and no . . . we’re not

getting greedy now, but know

that the team is up to winning

the comp. It’s a massive turn

around and a huge improvement,

but we’re now looking at winning

the comp,” said Mitchell, who

along with Lutton coached

Shirley’s division two side to a

title last year.

Shirley and High School Old

Boys are the only teams assured

of semi-final spots. Meanwhile,

Christchurch and New Brighton

meet on Saturday in what is a

must win game for both of their

playoff hopes.

Chatham Cup run

CHRISTCHURCH United

is set to meet Melville

United in the quarterfinals

of the Chatham

Cup after beating their

fourth Mainland Premier

League opponents, Nelson

Suburbs, on Saturday

night.

The dramatic 2-1 victory

at the Christchurch Football

Centre was achieved

through an 89th-minute

goal by Geoff Macintyre

which bounced slightly

fortuitously off his shin

past the despondent Nelson

goalkeeper.

The goal set up a frenetic

final few minutes in which

Suburbs were denied a

decent penalty claim in

injury time, before the

final whistle unleashed a

massive pitch invasion by

the large home support.

“It was an outstanding

result for the lads against a

real quality competition,”

said United coach Danny

Halligan, who recognised

that the penalty decision

could have gone either way.

“Most games at this

level often come down to

the bounce of the ball. I

personally didn’t think it

was a penalty but if it was

awarded, you wouldn’t

argue with it.”

CANTERBURY Rams big man

Mike Karena believes a change

in diet and eight months of

conditioning to recuperate his

body have helped pave the way

for a successful campaign.

The 210cm centre is the

Rams top-scorer this season,

averaging 14.9 points per game

and 56.9 per cent shooting

from the floor. The form has

seen Karena nominated for the

National Basketball League’s

most improved player award.

Last year Karena averaged 11.25

points per game and 50.4 per

cent shooting.

The 25-year-old’s numbers

have helped the Rams qualify

for the NBL’s final four weekend

at Horncastle Arena from July

20-21.

A shift in the gym from

out-and-out strength work to

more balance control and core

Karena.

After sustaining a lingering

back to almost 100 per cent

HOW HIGHLY should we rate

the Crusaders latest Super Rugby

title over the nine championships

which came prior?

In terms of overcoming the

uncontrollable circumstances

thrown at them off the rugby

field, what they went on to

overcome this year is in a league

of its own. However, it should

have never been the case.

Since the March 15 attack,

the Crusaders name and

branding has been put under the

microscope by anyone looking

to try and find a clearly nonexistent

link between a champion

rugby franchise and the hate of a

twisted individual. The horrible

event also acted as a catalyst for

B-grade journalists looking to

provoke outrage where it wasn’t

deserved.

Only in New Zealand and

perhaps Christchurch can we

have an event like we did in

March and within 48 hours,

the question in the media has

become ‘yes, but what does this

mean for rrrrrugby.’

What unfolded in the weeks

and months following the event

has left a sour taste in my mouth.

We could have had discussions

around why this tragedy

happened and the disturbing

realisation that our city has a

underbelly of white supremacy.

However, instead of an outcry

over this backward way of

thinking that has been pushed by

a minority who walk our streets,

it was instead shoved down New

Zealanders throats that our best

Super Rugby franchise needed

to change their name and stop

people dressing as knights and

riding horses pre-match.

Sure, the name wasn’t a good

look, but making it an issue was

a massive stretch. However, that

didn’t stop some lowbrows of

prominence jumping in to add

fuel to where there didn’t need

to be fire – all for the cause of

creating noise in the wrong place.

Unfortunately, the fire is still

burning. Last week I read an

news online at www.star.kiwi

Tough road to title No 10

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

opinion piece

on stuff.co.nz by

Grant Shimmin

who wrote that

he didn’t want

the Crusaders

to win the final

because “it

would simply

be an invitation

to forgetfulness,

an excuse,

somehow, to

entrench a

divisive brand at the centre of an

ongoing conversation.”

We’re more than right to

question a franchise’s integrity

if there are allegations of players

acting up in South Africa or by

contracting a player charged with

domestic violence – but grilling

this team over what happened in

March was and is a joke.

It was title No 10 for one of the

world’s most dominant sporting

franchises. Success hasn’t been

short over the last two decades,

but extra kudos deserves to be

thrown at the Crusaders this year

for saying sorry when they didn’t

need to.

Canty draw challenging

Farah Palmer Cup fixture

DEFENDING champions

Canterbury will host newlypromoted

Wellington – the

only team to have beaten

them last season – when the

Farah Palmer Cup starts on

August 31.

The competition will boast

13 teams this season with

the inclusion of Northland.

New Zealand Rugby released

the draw on Tuesday, which

involves more televised matches

than before (19).

NZR chief rugby officer Nigel

Cass said the growth of the cup

mirrored the interest in the

women’s game.

‘’We’ve seen women’s rugby

go from strength-to-strength

in recent years and it is great

to see the Farah Palmer Cup

continuing to develop and

give our players meaningful

competition,” he said.

‘’In the past two weeks, we

have seen six players from the

NEW

SEASON:

Canterbury

will begin

their Farah

Palmer Cup

defence

at home

against

Wellington.

Farah Palmer Cup make their

Black Ferns debut over in the

United States, which should

be a big motivator for players

stepping out in their provincial

colours later this year.”

Canterbury will be joined

in the premiership division by

Counties Manukau, Manawatu,

Waikato, Bay of Plenty, and

Auckland, which avoided

premiership relegation due

to the expanded competition

format.

Otago, North Harbour,

Tasman, Hawke’s Bay, Taranaki

and newcomers Northland

make up the championship.

Teams play each rival in

their own division once

throughout the round robin,

with the championship teams

advancing to quarter-finals and

the premiership teams going

straight to semi-final action.

The finals will be played on

the last weekend of October.

MOTORSPORT has always

been a passion and the

older I get more interested I

seem to be in watching cars

As circumstances allow,

I’ll often head to venues

and watch the skilful pilot

their machines.

One of the most recent

trips was with a couple

of work colleagues to the

townships of Pleasant Point

and Fairlie to watch the

South Canterbury Rally.

Hayden Paddon was

competing, and it was the

perfect opportunity to

watch one of the world’s

best rally drivers in action.

It was a great experience

on a dry day made better by

the use of comfortable but

unusual transport.

The car I used to travel

south was a Mercedes-Benz

B 180 hatchback, a quasi

sport utility vehicle, very

much resembling a midsize

station wagon.

The B 180 was a good

choice for the journey,

its turbocharged 1.3-litre

engine was thrifty, and

yet, even three-up it never

lacked for pace. Of course,

it’s not a fast car, but it does

everything effectively and

efficiently.

The 1332cc unit is rated

with 100kW with 200Nm

of torque available almost

immediately at 1250rpm.

If you take into account

that peak power arrives

at just 5500rpm, there is a

solid flow of energy which

works almost silently as the

engine hauls up and down

the rev band.

That type of refinement

is why many buyers choose

upmarket models, the

engineering which goes

into a high class product is

sophisticated, and it shows

with its effortless manner

and smooth operation.

Drive is directed through

a seven-speed dual clutch

gearbox. Effectively, it

works like a traditional

automatic, and with just

two pedals you drive it

as such. There are also

steering wheel-mounted

paddles which can be used

to initiate changes.

The beauty of DCT

transmission is the quick,

sharp gearshifts, especially

under load, the flick of the

tachometer is often the

only way the driver can

sense ratio change, and

the gearing is perfectly

balanced between what is

expected for acceleration

and fuel economy. Some

MERCEDES-BENZ B180: Turbocharged 1.3-litre

engine punches above its weight.

of the important figures

are a 9sec time to make

100km/h from a standstill,

and a 5.7-litre per 100km

(50mpg) combined

cycle fuel usage average,

these figures courtesy of

Mercedes-Benz.

During the long trip

south and return, the trip

computer was constantly

listing around 6.8l/100km

(42mpg), with an amazing

instantaneous figure

of around 3.8l/100km

(74mpg) showing at a

steady 100km/h (engine

speed 1800rpm).

• Price – Mercedes-

Benz B180, $58,800

• Dimensions –

Length, 4419mm;

width, 1796mm;

height, 1562mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

1332cc, 100kW,

200Nm, sevenspeed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage –

5.7l/100km

The latter figures are

available only when the

throttle is very relaxed and

there is no undulation.

I made several overtaking

manoeuvres on the journey,

and I can report that

through the mid-range the

B 180 responds perfectly

to throttle input, there is

no lag, and momentum is

carried willingly.

It is also a tidy highway

cruiser, there is a little tyre

noise off the rear rubber on

coarse chip seal, but other

than that it travels quietly

and feels well secured to

the road, it steers with

precision, while body

balance over the suspension

is controlled, which is

important given the spring

and damper rates aren’t

Motoring

firm, comfort has been

a high manufacturing

priority.

Inside, the B 180 gets the

usual box of tricks which

makes a Mercedes-Benz

such a desirable purchase,

especially for safety where a

full suite of kit is included.

Personally, I could do

without the very invasive

lane departure program,

it is quite intense when

activated.

However, I’m all for

clever safety techniques

and I’m not suggesting

there that it is a problem,

it just takes some getting

used to. It can easily be

switched off using some

of the comprehensive

control systems on the

centre console or the voice

activation system.

The B 180 also has the

benefit of clever design.

There’s no doubting its

hatchback/SUV looks,

but that lends itself to a

spacious, comfortable

interior environment and a

486-litre luggage carrying

capacity (1540-litres with

the rear seats folded).

The B-Class has been a

solid seller for Mercedes

Benz over the years, its

practicality will win it

many friends, and while it

may take some convincing

that a 1.3-litre engine has

the all-round goods, I

can report that it punches

well above its weight, and

it does so in such a nonstated

way.

For the Mercedes-

Benz faithful who

need practicality and

functionality in their

purchase, the B-Class fills

that void. You also get a

whole lot of prestige within

the package.

I’m picking other

models will filter through

downunder – four-wheeldrive

and a diesel option

would certainly add spice

to the series.

Buying and selling in winter

Spring is generally considered

the best time to sell a home.

Many houses look their best in

the warmer weather when the

sun is streaming through the

windows and the garden has

fresh new growth and spring

flowers abloom.

With this in mind, it might seem

pointless selling in winter yet there

are still buyers out looking, and with

fewer properties on the market winter

can be an ideal time to list your home.

Less competition could translate to

more buyers considering your home.

If people are out looking at

homes on cold grey days it

means they are serious about

buying so may be more likely to

make an offer.

In winter, buyers can assess the

warmth of a home and see the garden

with less foliage and growth. Visiting

after heavy rain allows buyers to

observe the home’s condition as issues

like drainage problems or outdoor areas

where water pools might be evident.

If currently looking for land to build

on or choosing a house design for a

section, visit the section at various

times of the day to assess where

the sun will come into the home.

Remember, the sun is lower in the sky

in winter so penetrate further inside

than it will in summer. This exercise

will help you appreciate which house

designs will best suit your piece

of land as well as where windows,

Oamaru

NEW LISTINGS

exterior doors, indoor/outdoor flow

and outside living areas will be best

placed for maximum sun on cooler

days. Bear in mind other seasonal

factors such as the potential for strong

northwest winds in spring and hot dry

summer days.

If selling a property, you will

want it to look good. Clean up the

garden, clip back dead wood on

trees and shrubs and weed garden

beds. Mulching will make the

garden tidier too. Add colour with

flowers which bloom in winter like

calendula, hellebores, lobelia, pansies

and polyanthus. Fill gaps in your

herbaceous borders with trees and

shrubs which offer variation of colour

like bronze and variegated foliage or

flowering species such as camellia.

Keep it simple as a fussy looking

garden will give the impression it

requires a lot of work to keep it tidy.

Many people however, want easy care.

Real estate agents always

recommend de-cluttering inside and

outside. Too many ornaments, wall

hangings and furniture take the eye

away from the features of the home

and will make the rooms look smaller.

An unclean or untidy home will

also make it less appealing. Create a

warm inviting atmosphere with fresh

flowers, scented candles and essential

oils (though not too strong), and the

odd ornament. Heat all rooms before

an open home (especially on dreary

days) so viewers are not walking into

cold rooms.

The more appeal the home has the

more chance a potential buyer will
